TARVIN RURAL. A mooting of this Council was held on Satur- day, Mr. R. 0. Orton presiding. A VICAR'S APPLICATION. A Letter was received from the Rev. E. A. Hut- ton, vicar of Hargrave, in nefjetrenoo to a proposed parish room and parish club ia the village. Such an institution, he stated, was very much needed, and he was quite willing to erect one if he could obtain a suitable plot of land. The best place would be a little triangular plot adjoining the Post-offioe, and he requested the District Counoil to either sell or lease it to him. He would first put up a temporary wooden building, but if the elub was a success and an advantage to the vil- lage, he proposed to raise money to build a per- manent structure. So far as ownership went, it would bo a Church club, but like the National Church, it would be open to all as long as they behaved themselves. (Laughter.) The commit- tee would not be confined by any means to Churchmen. The club would be utilised for a lads' club and the holding of small meetings like bandit of hope, etc., for which the school waa too large. The Council, he urged, had the power to either let or sell the land. The Clerk (Mr. H. G. Ba ley) said the Council had no euch power. The Council were simply custodians of the highways for the benefit of the public. Mr. R. Cathcart Smith pointed out that on a recent occasion the vicar of Hargrave wrote to I the Council protesting against the action of a certain individual in attempting to enclose some land. The rev. gentleman had out the ground fiora under hie own feet, and the Council ought not to consider the matter further. The Clerk: We have no authority; our hands ,are tied, as I told Mr. Hutton before. The letter was allowed to lie on the table. A DANGEROUS CORNER. Mr. Youd, Waverton. called attention to a dangerous corner at Huxley, and a committee was tAL appointed to view the cApat.-T"rio Surveyor (Mr. Piggott) said if Lord Hadd'nsrton would give the necessary land he could effect a great improve- ment at a cost of JB25.
