"â = Neyland Parish Council. The monthly meeting of this council was held on Mon- day evening in the Board School. Mr Anthony James presided, and there were also present: Messrs Skone, E. Davies, Allen, Thomson, Voyle, Lewis, Gwilliam, Hitchings, G. Davies, and Dr. Symmonds. THE CARE OF PARISH DOCUMENTS. A letter was read from the Clerk to the County Council asking what documents the Parish Council had taken possession of, and where they were kept. The Chairman said they could authorise the Clerk to furnish the information. He thought there were only two minute books, one from the Church that they had from Mr Rumsey, and the other from the old Burial Board. The Clerk: And a list of all the burials since the cemetery was formed. The Chairman Just so. Dr. Symmonds moved that the desired information be furnished by the Clerk. Mr E. Davies seconded. The Chairman said it was the duty of the Council to know where such documents were, and whether they were in safe keeping. The resolution was carried. COUNTY COURT BUSINESS. The Clerk read a letter from the Lord Chancellor stating that the resolution sent by the council against the proposal to transfer Neyland County Court business from Haverfordwest to Pembroke Dock should be duly con- sidered, but at present the submission of the order to her Majesty, in council was postponed until the autumn. The Chairman said there was a petition in course of preparation. The Clerk remarked that if the petition was sent to the Lord Chancellor before the long vacation it would be in time. The Chairman said that was so, but it should be sent as early as possible. (Hear, hear). THE CEMETERY LOAN. The Local Government Board wrote that it was necessary to have a parish meeting before the loan of J6300 could be sanctioned for the building of the new Cemetery Chapel. The Chairman said that this meant that the Local Government Board would now sav ves. NEW ACTS OF PARLIAMENT. The Local Government Board wrote calling the atten- tion of the Parish Council to the Parish Fire Engines' Act, the Post Office Grants Act, and the Library Offences Act. Dr. Symmonds asked if the Fire Engines' Act allowed the Parish Council to get a fire engine of their own ? The Chairman: Yes, but it would be usless for us to get one as we have no water. The old saying is that when we get water into a place we have fires, and no water no fires. (Laughter). THE CEMETERY. The Clerk said there were eight burials in the cemetery during the month. Mr Skone called the council's attention to the broken wall at the cemetery, and thought it should be replaced by those who took it down as soon as possible. He moved that the Clerk write to Mr Phillips requesting him to replace the wall immediately. Dr. Symmonds seconded. The Clerk said Mr Harries had promised several times to do it, but had not done so yet. The resolution was carried. URBAN POWERS. The Chairman said as it was anticipated that they would have Urban powers by October they gave notice to their Clerk that his term of office should expire on the 29th of September. He proposed they should re- engage Mr Griffiths for the next six months, providing that the Order did not come down before that time. Mr Skone seconded, and the resolution was carried, Mr Allen remaining neutral. FOOTPATHS AND SITES. Dr. Symmonds asked the council's attention to the unguarded condition of the steps on the lower field going down to Church Lakes. There was nothing to prevent a person from falling on a dark night. The Chairman said it was Government property. They had the question under consideration some time ago, and nothing came of it, but permission had been given to the council to do anything they thought proper. Mr Thomson Is that pathway a public footpath ? The Chairman Oh, yes, I believe it is. Mr Thomson said he was pleased the matter had been brought forward as it was important. It was impossible for any female to pass up that pathway without spoiling to some extent their dress. The Chairman thought the Roads' Committee should inspect the place, and suggest to the council what was best to be done. Mr Gwilliam suggested that the stiles in that district should also be inspected. (Hear, hear). The Chairman said they were not allowed to make stiles as it was the duty of the owners of the property. Mr Allen argued that if they were going to commence at one stile they had better go through the whole of the parish, or compel the landed proprietors to keep their stiles in a proper condition. Mr G. Davies said they must be very careful or they would get surcharged. They were helpless to repair stiles. They should write to the War Department or the ground landlords, and no doubt they would have the effect desired. As they had no power to do the work out of the rates they would not be justified in spending any money. Mr E. Davies did not see why they should not do this work. In the past they had done lots of things that they were supposed not to do, and they had been a great boon. Mr Voyle thought they ought to be cautious in dealing with the matter. They had not been surcharged yet, and they ought to avoid it. They would have Urban Powers soon, and then all these things would be done by them. On the motion of Dr Symmonds, a resolution was carried for the Roads Committee to inspect the place, and report to the Council. A COMPLAINT. Mr Allen drew the notice of the Council to a paragraph in Neyland Notes of the Milford Haven Telegraph of August 17th, wherein it was stated that he at a previous meeting accused the Clerk of having an inner ring in the Council, to which he gave information. That statement was untrue, and he did not address the Clerk at the meeting in question on the subject. The Clerk bore out Mr Allen s statement. [We regret the error. Mr Allen's name was inadvert- ently used for another member.âED of T.] I W. & A.
