All the land so situated was already mainly let in small holdings.—Mr Lomax also wrote saying he was willing to let the field known as Siamberwen for allotment purposes, but he wished to know whether the Council wanted it on lease, and if so, for what length of time. This was important, because if the field was let for gardening, and only by the year, the field could be given up at a year's notice, and would not be worth much for some years afterwards as a field.—The two letters were referred to the Allotments Com- mittee. 1 he committee appointed to consider the glazing of the Market Hall recommended that the whole of one side and the two gables should be glazed, and that Mr Ward be asked to prepare speci- fications and an estimate of the cost-The report was adopted.—A long discussi n took place as to the site for an ashpit near the Lower-street Bridge.

Jones proposed and seconded respectively that the ashpit be built on that strip of land behind the present Wall.—Mr C. H. Jones proposed and Mr Ellis Roborts seconded an amendment favouring the erection of the ashit on another site offered by Mr Lomax at a nominal rent, on the ground that the site was a more convenient and desirable one, and would pre- sent a lesn unsightly appearance.—On being put to the vote, four voted for the amendment and four for the motion, and the Mayor gave his casting vote in favour of the amendment.—It was resolved that the question of ad,)pting the Notification of Infectious Diseases Act be considered at the next meeting.— The Finance Committee reported that zC20 4s 9d had been expended on the roads during the past month, being Y,17 7s Id less than last year.—A Committee consisting of the Mayor, and Messrs John Jones and William Jones was appointed conside- the report on :hc sf e supply.

It 'let' them into to road at the bottom of the very worst bank they had to climb.—Mr. John Jones proposed that t e recommendation of the committee with re^ereate to Belan road be adopted. He adrrytted that th road was not a satisfactory one, nor would other road they might make amoug those hills satisfactary. He did not think £ 100 would sufficient. According to the committee's recom, mendatiou they would be employing their (nd men, and, would now spend some zEI5 or that would make the road passable.—Mr. Ellis seconded this—Mr. C. R.
