Jones (surveyor). A BLIND MAX'S APPLICATION. Mr. S. Owen. a blind man, hailing from Porth, appeared before the Board, praying to be allowed to keep a stand on the old Cymmer Bridge. It appears that at the last meeting the Board ordered instructions to be given to the police to stop all quacks and others who created a nuisance thereat. He (the applicant) said he had kept a stall in an out-of-the-way corner since he had met with the accident which deprived him of his sight, and the stall was the only means of livelihood he now had.—Mr. W. H. Mathias asked whether the Board could not rent the place to him at a nominal sum. —The Chairman No, we cannot do that. After some discussion, it was agreed that although the Board wished to be charitable, they could not give him permission to stand there, it being understood, of course, that they would not press the matter. MORE URINALS. A letter was read from the secretary of the Mid- Rhondda Chamber of Trade, asking the Board to erect a few more urinals in Tonypandy. Mr. Llewellvn remarked that the same things were required at Treherbert.— Mr. G. Thomas And at Mardy.—It wan then decided that the surveyor should be asked to report on the matter of minerals in the above districts, as well as at Dinas, at the next meeting. THE MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT. Dr. James, the medical officer, submitted his monthly report, which showed that during the last month the number of deaths registered was 123, 69 of which were under five years of age. During the same period the births were 171 males and 123 females, giving a death-rate of 15 48, and a birth- rate of 36*96 per cent. Seven cases of death were due to measles, 4 to scarlatina, 19 to chest diseases. 10 to phthisis, 1 to typhoid fever, and 9 registered by coroners' inquests. He might add that the sanitary arrangements of Trealaw, where the case of typhoid took place, was very defective, and he had instructed the inspector to report on the same. He had also to remark that some houses in Tre- harne-street, Pentre. had been nooded the floors Were rotten, and the houses were unfit for human habitation.—Mr. A. J. Treharne asked whether a reply had been received from Mr. J. S. Corbett with reference to the overflowing of the river near the Ty'nybedw Bridge.—The Surveyor said that he had met Mr. Corbett. but he had not mentioned anything about the matter—Mr. Treharne re- marked that. in his opinion, the defect could be remedied if the proper precautions were taken.— Mr. Llewellyn moved that the matter be deferred for a fortnight, and that in the meantime Mr. Corbett be communicated with.—Mr. G. Thomas thought it would be better to have the houses closed, as the parties had received sufficient time to remedy the evil.—It was however, after some discussion, decided to defer the matter for a month, during which time the owners would be enabled to make any changes they desired, and if they were not in proper condition at that time they would be condemned.
