Mountain Ash District Council. MAINTENANCE OF THE MAIN ROAD. The meeting of the Mountain Ash District Council was held on Tuesday, but no matters of importance were dealt with on account of the chief officials as well as several members being away in London.âMr. J. Bruce Jones was voted to the chair, and there were also present Messrs. Geo. Hall, Evan Morris, Rev. E. V. Tidman, Mr. Griffith Evans, Dr. Morgan, and Mr. T, W. Jones with Mr. Linton, junr., and Mr. J. H. Price (deputy-surveyor.) A committee which met the County Council Committee, at Pontypridd, on April 23rd, in reference to the control of the main road through Mountain Ash, reported that the County Council refused to entertain tho application of the Mountain Astl 'Council to repair footpaths, and they disclaimed liability with, regard to [payment. The responsible authority, they urged, was the District Council or the owners of the property. They would, however, con- sider what grants they would malce towards such repairs. The Clerk's report in reference to the ripilit- of-way over Mr: Basset's land and Tag Vale Railway to the proposed recreation grounds at Abercynon was considered. A question arose as to the terms quoted by Messrs. Nixon's for the sale of the land to the Council. The Press were asked not to take any note of this.â The matter was adjourned. Dr. Evans (Medical Officer) and the Clerk submitted reports on tho Isolation Hospital. It was pointed out that in the administration block there were four wards and twelve beds, and the hospital, whereas it was isolated many years ago, it was not so now. In accordance with an order issued by the Local Government Board there should bo at these hospitals one bed for every thousand of the population, and 'therefore Mountain Ash did not provide suffi- cient accommodation. Regarding the small pox hospital, the Council were still seeking for a site. It was agreed, after some discussion, that these reports should bo sent to the Local Government Board. The Medical Officer's quarterly report was submitted, It was stated that for tho quarter ending March 31st, 3S5 births had been regis- tered, 201 males and 395 females and deaths, 158. The birth-rate was 30.6 per thousand of the estimated population, and the death-rate was 14.8.âIn his ordinary report, Dr. Evans pointed out that since the last meeting four cases of scarlet fever, 11 of diphtheira, and one of enteric fever had broken out. It transpired that the scarlet fever eases were from Pen- rhiwceiber. A letter was read from Mr. Gwilym Jones, solicitor, hi reference to the claims of Messrs. John Prosser and Richard Williams, in respect of Maesyrarian allotments. Mr. Prosser's claim, which was for £2108., was passed for payment, and Mr. Williams's was referred to the Surveyor to report upon. A letter was read from the solicitor of the Ynysmcurig Estate, concerning the encroach- ment in Station-road, Abercynon.âThe letter was referred to tho Surveyor. The Local Government Board wrote sanction- ing the re-appointment of Mr. Harry T. Jones as inspector of nuisances under the Council. A notice of a meeting to be held at Llandrindod on Whit-Monday, to form a Welsh Urban District Council Association, was received, inviting tho Chairman and Clerk to be present. No itction was taken. The Surveyor reported that the rainfall for the past month had been 4.66 inches, which constituted a record. Rev. E. V. Tidman asked if it were not possible for the water-cart to go into Duffryn-road, instead of only to the corner, as at present.â The Deputy-surveyor replied that this street was not included in the list recently drawn up. At the suggestion of the Chairman, it was decided that the Watering Committee should meet early so that a new list could be drawn up. âDr. Morgan referred to the bad drainage in Rock-terrace, Ynysybwl, and moved that the matter be referred to tho Surveyor to report upon. Ynysybwl, he said, was also in need of an additional watering cart.âThis matter was referred to the Watering Committee.âMr. T. W. Jones referred to the necessity of getting more hydrants in the streets at Abercynon. This was also referred to the Surveyor.âDr. Morgan asked how it was that the watering-carte were never out during Bank Holidays, etc. He contended that the streets needed more watering then, on account of there being more people about. <⺠"â¢
