C0LWYN BAY URBAN COUNCIL LIGHTING OF ABERGELE ROAD. The November meeting' of the Council vvv.s held in the Council Chambers, Conway-road, on Tuesday, Mr Joseph Dlicken, deputy-chair- mtin, presiding. STREET TREES. The Surveyor suggested the. desirability of planting trees in Eirskine-road, Highfield-road, Victoria-avenue, Ha warden-road, Conway- I'Oad, Vidtoina l\i(r5kj, Ration-road. Total number 96, cost of which is estimated at £J6 8s. It' was .agreed to provide and plant the trees reiommended exccpt in Victoria. Park, the owners of houses there to be asked to pro- vide the trees necessary to complete the Toad. DANGEROUS CURVE, BEACH 'ROAD. A letter had bsen received from Mr W. G. tV^llliaims, chemist, Old Colwyn, support by others, pointing out the nece^city for a notice being fixed on Beach-road, u;here it joined the main road. The surveyor in con- sultation with the chairman had been instruc- ted by the committee to forthwith cansa a warning notice to be fixed at the top of tiie road. Mr Bernard Lowe asked what kind of notice was to he put up. Would it be a grey notice in a grey wall like other notices that had. been put up? Mr E'. H. Davies said the present noticxs were difficult to find, and he hoped a- more prominent notice would be placed on beach- raad. VICTORIA-AVENUE SUBWAY. It was reported that the Railway Company hlad accepted the Oouncils's offer to bear the actual increased cost of constructing a bridge of 40 feet span over the. Victoria-avenue ap- proach to the Promenade in connection with the new station works. The company s en- gineer had prepared an estimate of the cost of widening the existing bridge, which amounted to about £ 4000, or if the work was not taken in band in connection with the existing con- tract for the new station the cost would be Increased to abiout .S4353. The sub-com- mittee had replied, stating the Council under the circumstances were not prepared to incur such outlay in widening the existing bridge to 40 feet. The sub-eommittee's action was ap- proved. RK;FUSE y^sTRUCTOR. The sub-committee appointed to report on the question of the provision of a. refuse de- structor intimated that the question be post- poned for 12 months, and the General Pur- poses Committee approved the decision. Mr Wm. Davies moved that the matter be not postponed, and that a fresh committee be appointed. A lively debate followed, Mr Davies remark- ing thiat ih.e did not know if there was any political reason for the opposition to a reiuse deetructor. Had it anything to do with the Primrose league's boast that it was going to sweep the town? And were they cfraid if matters were inquired into it would t.l«ow up the muddle into which the town's affairs had -be.enQ"ot ? ) Mr Edward Allen seconded the motion that a .fresh committee be appointed, as it seemed clear that it was very unusual for the com- mittees to go into matters with their minds already made lIP, hence the subjects under discussion did not receive proper considera- tion. After a. g()Q(); deal1 of chaff and banter be- tween various members of the Council, Mr Heenan, whose firm is interested in the erec- tion of refuse destructors, said, thou.h be believed a destructor was desirable and ne- cessary, considering the niancial prsiiion of the Council, he thought it would be well to accept the recommendation of the committee. He had often complained of the flies at Old Colwyn, but he did not think there was "any flies on" any member of that Council, and the recommendation of the committer had been made in the interests of the ratepayers. That clinched the matter, and the recom- mendation of the committee was adopted. WATER SUPPLY. In regard to a letter from the Local Go- vernment Board with reference to the question of the water supply and inquiring the present position of the matter, and in particular as to whettber the Council bad taken requisite steps to obtain a settlement of the differences upon the lines indicated in the Board's letter of 18th April last. It was resolved that a special meeting of the Council be held (in com- mittee* on the question of the water supply generally, the date of the meeting to be fixed br the chairman of the Council. TRAIN SERVICE. A letter was read from Mr L. W. ;Tcrne, district superintendent, Chester, stating that the company bad had under consideration the question of stopping the 11.14 p.m. train from Chester at Cblwyn Bay, both in cmnection wIth the summer service and for the winter, and expressing regret that the company were unable to grant the request. SPEED OF MOTOR CARS. The General Purposes Committee J'f ported leceipt of a letter from the secretary of the Town (Advertising Association, reevpecbfullly suggesting that a bye-law should be made 1o enforce a. speed limit on motor cars pnssing through- the district, and adding tha:, sudh a bye-law would be appreciated by both visitors and residents alike. The clerk was directed by the committee, to reply explaining the. steps previously adopted, and. expressing the opinion that an application for the Order s posted wouid be unsuccessful. The Rev W. Hugfhes moved, that the letter from the association should be sent to the County Council asking the county authority to seek an order from the Local Gov>-mment Board fixing a speed limit of 10 mikv in hour in Abergele-road, Station-road, Conw;iy-road, and the Promenade. Mr John Jones seconded. The Chairman pointed out that. so far as the Promenade- was concerned, motors v ould not be allowed there another season. After some discussion, the amendment was put to the vote, and declared lost, .and the recommendation of the committee was adop- ted. ABERGELE-ROAD LIGHTING. The Lighting Committee reported that the lighting of Abergele-road bad; .been again con- sidered, and they recommended thaT. a high power lamp be fixed on tbe corner of Green- field-road. The Rev W. Hughes moved that th"- road be .lighted by electricity. He went into the matter at considerable length, and showed that the advocates of sgas had previously been proved to be "riding the. wrong horse." when the question of lighting the Promenade was di&cusised, and he believed, they were doing so Mr John Jones seconded the amendment. Mr Wm. Davies pointed out that wii hone or two exceptions ajl the members "f the alighting Committee bad electric ligltt outside their own ppemises. After some further discussion )h", nend- ment was put to the vote and carried hy nine to five, so that AbergeJe-road will now be lighted by electricity. STREET LIGHTING AND PUBLIC LAMPS. It was resolved, on the recommendai ion of the Lighting Committee, to fix four high, power lamps on the main road at Old Colwyn, an m- candescent lamp by the footbridge n -ar the viaduct in Beach-road, and a similar lamp be- tween that point and Tanycoed, five oii lamps â¢along BTompton-aivteuiue-, LiLannerch-road to Quarry Cottage (no gas main laid), two gas lamps, Quarry Cottage to Ship Hotoi one gas lamp at each end of the public footway crossing from Tanybryn-road. to Brynrieiaid j one gas lamp at the end of the new mam near Ty'nyrhewl; one was lamp between 3rd and 4th lamp up Pwllycrochan-avenue; one gas limp in Marine-road, near the railway b-idge, and gas lamps at each end of Albert -p!a<-u and Rhiw Bank-avenue.
