The Clerk read a letter from Superintendent Evan Jones stating that the lamps in the Pontv- pridd and Treforest districts ^vere properly Ïit during the past month. hoardings. Mr Evan Watkins. of Union-street, waited upon the board to complain of a hoarding which la been placed in front of wmeh o^truct l lii rrli \vi v and wished the nuisance to oe removed as soon as possible.-The Clerk said that the hoarding was private property, and that it was not such a nuisance as the oar 11 c-t fere with. It was not injurious to they could do nothing in the matter.—Mr Go ja remarked that some time ago a pass CM 1 recommending that some of tne.e hoard- ing should be altered, and asked u th^t h.tci Uen done-The Clerk replied in the negative. A letter was read from the Cnambei ot Trade with reference to the widening of the bridge" of the TafT.—The Clerk said that there was a resolu- tion on the books with reference to this matter-— The Surveyor said he was preparing plans for the work. but that before he could finish them he would have to obtain the levels from Mr. J. A. n. Williams, of Cardiff. POLLUTION OF THE RHONDDA. A letter was read from the County Council stat- ic that a committee from the C utiicd wwild visit the Rhondda district that day. asking if any mem- bers of the Board would wish to join—The Lie k said that the letter had come too hue to come be- fore the whole Board, but that he had asked Dr. Howard Davies to meet them. and he hact done so.

QVARREL WITH BURI A.L BOARD. The CVrk c tiled the attention of the Board to the fact that, despite all their efforts, the Burial Board had made up their mind to extend their dis- trict. and he thought it was high time that a special meeting of the Board should oe called to consider the question. It was now time for them to take it up. if they intended doing so. and he believed that the opposition of the Local Bo:m1 would be fatal to the Burial Boards Bnl.—Mi. Rowlands The only thing we want them to do is to defer the matter until we see whether we will obtain a charter of incorporation or not.—The Chairman I find that some of the members are in favour of incorpora- tion. but at the same time they are in favour o, extending the area of the Burnu Board, and I can see no consistency m tnat. Theies Mi. Ys Jones h9 has taken into his head to snub the Local Board more than anybody has ever aone before. He say. that the Local Board should not dictate to the Burial Board, and that they were already pledged to further the matter. I think that is very unfaii on Mr. Jones' part to use such language-Mr. Gowan said they had better trr and delay the matter for a while.—The Clerk said it was no use for them vo go against the Local Board. for the Local Board was the ruling body of that district. —The Chairman: Yes: and we would, perhaps, not give much opposition if wp found that tiio Burial Board was unanimous. But I find that there were only 4 to 3 in its favour.—Mr. David Rowlands I think we should have a meeting lie-t week to consider the matter, in order that we may positively report to the Board at its meeting -yVr cjp.v-^ • It seems to me that the Burial Board are'independent of us and the ratepayers, but at the same time I don't see that it would he very proper for us to use the ratepayers money to fight what will also be advanced by the ratepayers money.—On the motion of the Chairman it was decided to hold a special meeting on the following Friday. LAMTS UNLIT AGAIN. Mr. P. Gowan called the attention of the Board to the fact that all the lamps in the Pwllgwaun and Rhondda districts had been put out between the 8th and 18th inst. soon after halt-past eienen at night, and workmen were obliged to go to their work the following mornings in the dark. In addition to that one lamp in his district had been broken since the 2nd of November and no steps had been taken to repair it.—'Mr. Snaps is a great nitv that we have to call the attention of the gas company so often to this affair.-1Ir. Gowan It's no use for us to receive their ex- cuses. The Chairman remarked that several people had been complaining to him about this matter, and he was of opinion that the Board should take some steps in the matter. suggested that the Board should take up Lie L ht- ing of the district and have it done by contract It was eventually decided that the chairman to- gether with Mr. Snape and Mr. Gowan shotudbe a deputation to meet the directors of the gas company xuisANCE 0>- THE TRAMROAD. Mr Freedman. pawnbroker, Tramroad-side, waited unon the Board to cotoplam ot a c^n hoarding which had been put up by the proprietor of the Greyhound Inn. in front OL the house wh .ch was now' undergoing some aKeraaonb.^ xho Clerk said that in all well absolutely compulsory to pu. up j. f —Mr. Freedman: But these feet outside the pavement—The Chairman said that the Board would look into the matter. and it was eventually decided that the proprietor should be asked to remove the hoaiamg so as not to coma over the pavement. THE RHONDDA ROAD iMrcovESESTP. Mr. Snaps reported that a sub-committee 'had visited most of the landowners abutting on the Rhondda-road. and some of those gentlemen had given them the price they would require for land for widening the road. — A discussion foJoweu -respectiuo- these compensations, which the reporters were asked not to publish.—?vlr. Snape though. that additional help should be provided for the surveyor, and said that the sub-committee recom- mended the Board to give Mr. Rees (the surveyor) an assistant, and also appoint a man who should net as Inspector of Works who would be a mason by trade, and a man who would work if Kecessary Mr. John James concurred with this opinion.—Tne Chairman said he also agreed, with the recom- mendation for an Inspector or who would also be able to lank aitci the scavenging contractor, but he would pieici delay- ino- the question of assistant-surveyor for a time. -31r. Gowan suggested that a man he employed temporarily to draw plans for the proposed im- provements.—It was eventually decided, on the motion of Mr. Snape. that the Board advertise for a mason as inspector .cf works, at a salary .o. .35s. per week.—Mr. James moved, and Mr. Rowlands seconded, that sketches oe sent to the owners of lajid, showing how muci was required for the pro- posed improvements.—T-Lis wascarriea nem. < Oti. THE PROPOSED S. AT'GHTEilHOUSE. A long discussion took ..nlaoe with reference to 'the cos t oC the proposed .slaughterhouse on -the Tram-road side. but it was found out that the «jost of obtaining land for i'ae same would amount ito a large sum. and it was eventually decided not to pass a.nv resolution oix the matter chat day, and -that the clerk should furths-r communicate with other landowners with a vieycof obtaining ancsdier and a cheaper *-ite.

BRIDGEND LOCAL BOARD. The usual monthly meeting of this Board was held on Tuesday evenintr last, when there were present-Mr. LI.' Wallington (chairman), Messrs. W. M. Richards. W. McG-aul. E. Rich, W. Powell. M Davies T. J. Hughes (clork), W yndham Randall (medical officer), and E. Williams (surveyor).— The Finance Committee's report was read by xur. • Richards and adopted, showing that there was a balance of 102 17s. in favous of the Board at the bank.-The Medical Officer reported that tor the quarter ending 30th September the death rate had beeen 27. The report, which contained several important matters, was, on the motion of Mr. Michael Davies, deferred until Tuesday next. The Surveyor reported that, with reference to numbers 9 and 10, Cowbridge-road being unlit for habitation. the landlord had told him they would be shortly closed. With reference to the necessity of a water supply at Mrs. Santa houses, she had refused blankly to comply with the Board s de- mand to put water in. The Board allowed the matter to drop. Mr. Rowe was progressing with the work of connecting the drams at Au*- tralian-terrace satisfactorily. Ifc had ordered 50 tons of limestone chippings for the pavements He had written to Mr. Morgan regarding the state of hi« houses at Newcastle, but liad received no reply. Theinspectorof weights and measures (Supenn- tondent Thomas) desired that the weights ox the SeiSrid'e should be testcd.-The Clerk stated that the Board now paid a guinea year to Messrs. P-rnell fer looking after the machine, and the matter was left in abeyance. He reported that he had repaired the road near Morfa-street.—A letter was read from Mr. J. W. Morgan, stating that he h-'d observed in the reports of the proceedings ot the Board at the last meeting that Mr. Poweil had brought a complaint of the overflow ot the Coitv brook. They quite understood Mr. Powell s championing the cause of the ratepayers, but in this case he desired to state that Mr. D. H. Lloyd had. at considerable outlay, erected, but the over- flow in question came out of the gateway of a field in the possession of Sir. PoweB hiia»elf. CLaughter.)—3Ir. Powell proceeded to explain. He stated that water ran down from Coity-road as well The Surveyor said he would see what could be done —Mr. McGaul asked the surveyor to see that at the time allowed Mr. Lloyd removes the temporary bridge over the brock-A resolution was passed at the sub-committee appointed to consider the expenditure for cleansing cesspools in the town, recommending that where cesspools had onlv recently been cleansed that a pump je used to pump out all liquid matter, with the idea of reducing the expenditure of same.—It was pointed out that the average cost of cleansing cesspools was £1 3s. lid.—The committee 8 recommenda- tion was adopted. MR. C. P. DAVIS AND THE BOABD. The Clerk read a letter which he had received from Mr S. H. Stockwood, as solicitor to Mr. C. P. Davies. complaining of Mr. Wallington s acuonm surreptitiously connecting his dianis with ilr. Davies- sewer, and of the Surveyor s action in con- niving at it, in spite of the agreement arrived at between Mr. Davis and the Board two years ago. The Clerk said he had written in reply that Mr. Wallington and the Surveyor both denied indig- nantly that they had acted in a surreptitious manner, and that Mr. Davis must have been aware of what was being none.—The Chairman said that this was simply the result of his objection to Mr. Philip Thomas connecting a drain without asking for the necessary permission. Mr. Thomas was about to connect when he (the Chairman) asked him if he had had permission to do so. He said Xo." and that he was going to connect, and knew as much about the law as the Local Boaid. He would like the minutes to be read on the question if the members thought it nceessary. He had, personally, done nothing at all surreptitiously. The Clerk then read the minutes of the Board in August. 1882. that Mr. Wallington was given per- mission to lengthen the drain on the promise that he pay half the cost.—The Surveyor reported in November, stating that Mr. Wallington had con- nected his drain with the newly constructed sewer, but that Mr. C. P. Davies had then assured him (the surveyor)th»t if the drain was intended to carry sewerage to the river he would at once enter an action against the Board. A letter was received from Mr. C. P. Davies stating that if the Board would arrant him some concession regarding the public footpath in front of his house, ho would grant this permission. The Board, how- ever, declined to accept these terms.—T.ie Clerk said that appeared IF. e acquiescing in the matter.— Mr. Richards I remember it very well. that it was never intended to be used as a sewer we drain.. Mr. Wallington Then I am rather surprised, as you were then chairman of the Board, to see that it is not entered upon the minutes.—Sir. Richard". I did not know but that it was upon the minutes. —Mr. Wallington You don't think I wonld be so foolish as to pay £ 5 towards the cost of this drain if there was such a restrict lou, do yon ?-Tbe Clerk said he had not the slightest recollection of such an intention.—-Mr. Davies said if this were so the surveyor should not have allowed it to be cou- nected at the time.—The Surveyor I made a complaint to the Board, as my report states.—Sir. Davies But you ought to have prevented him yourself.—After some further discussion it was de- cided that the matter be deferred for consideration until a reply had been received from Mr. Davies. MISCELLANEOUS. Mr. M;Gaul asked what had become of the standing orders to wind up the Board with.' (Laughter.)—The Clerk asked for instructions to have them printed. But he would not like to have them printed in the manner they were left. At present they were more like a Chinese puzzle. (Renewed laughter.)—Mr. M'&aul said that Mr. Richards had made the puzzle in his own 'hand- writing so he had better assist the clerk to de- cipher it.—Mr. Richards having casually remarked that standing orders would not be required weM it not for Mr. M-G-aul's talk, it was decided that he meet the clerk to get them ready for printing.—The Clerk explained that owing to the introduction of new requirements by the Local Government Board, he was obliged to serve further notices re- garding the new cemetery before the enquiry would be held. They were about to be served now. He had only incidentally become acquainted with this latest requirement.

The3 POLICE and LICENSE HOLDERS.—A XEW DEPARTURE.—The Chairman before, the com- mencement of business gave it as an instruction to the Superintendent that the Bench would not in future accept the uncorroborated evidence of police officials as to the characters of publicans. "WOMAN, LOVELY WOMAN."—John Badman, Poutycymmcr. was summoned for assaulting his brobher. who lived at Bridgend.—Samuel Badman. the complainant, said .he took his brother in. he having been turned away from home. and it was arranged that when witness was away his wdfe was to sleep at her mother's house, and when jst home defendant was to Sk-ep on the sofa. On the previous Saturday, shortly after mid night, he went Lome and found that there was a light, in his r-oom. i.pstairs. After kuo-skmg at the door twice his briber called out from upstairs, and subse- quently came down partly w.dressed and finding his wife's boots in the back-kitchen he had suspicion, and upon going upstairs caught his <\viic under the bed in her chemise. He pulleS her out and struck her. Subsequently his brother asked him What's .-all this about?'" i'.nd hit hi 11 in the sight of tlwi policeman, who had theniomc in. Some .hours afterwards he went there, and defendant, who .vrtu: in possession. a«ain threatened him. He hj.d si),ce threatened iliEi.—Margaret Austin, complaint's mother.

In a measure this was .excusable, but no man •e»w&d be excused for striking1 a woman still, he wae; .-so very greatly provoked that the magis- trates leaked upaa it in as leiii&ar a way .as pos- sible. He would ,be fined 5s., including costs. The case .:1g;ain,t Joun Badman was j* most-sfcrious one and foe would be bound ove* to keep the peace for tsi'ss months in the sum of &2D. with *cwo additional s AK'-ties of ;t 10 each, and ie default two months' imprisonment. ABSAULTIXO' a POUCE-CONSTAP.LE. — THORN** Rice, a cobbler, living at 15, G-Yvc-iuloline- street, Blaengarvr, was charged with assaulfc- ■ ing Police-constable Driver- whilst in the execution of his duty on. the 11th inst. at Xantymoel.— Police-constable Driver said he watched the de- fendant trying to break -i$to a shed in a field belonging to the Ocean Colliery Company. He managed to get hold of defendant, and proceeded to take him to the police-station. When on the way he became violent, and struck witness on the chest, and owing to witness slipping into a pool near by he jfot away. He was arretted the same night.—Police-constable Beynon also gave evidence, and defendant %as fined £2 inclusive ot costs. SEQUEL TO AX Election AT TAIUAGIJ'.—Four young men, named "VV'illiam Herbert, William Rees Batt, William John David, and Prank Roberta, all rodents at Taibach, were pharyi^l Wit'll wilfuUy dninfiging a basket, the property of Richard Thomas, grocer and draper, of that place, to the extent of 3s. 6d., its original cost.—Mr. T. J. Hughes, who appeared for the defence, elicited the fact from the complainant that he was the unsuccessful candidate for the post of assistant overseer in the Margam parish, and had suffered unpleasantness from the other side. He had not seen the basket since, neither did he make any enquiries regardingits whereabouts. Witness had heard that it was at the p--iice-station that morn- ing.—Thomas John Rees, boy in the employ of complainant, said the defendants took the basket from him after Herbert had knocked him in the eye. They then commenced to kick it about, and witness ran back to the shop.—Police-constable Heads said he went to defendant Herbert's house, and he said he had left Mle basket on the road after 'giving it a kick in fun. Witness was told that the basket was none the worse. He believed that two of the defendants went to beg the complainant's pardon.—Mr. Hughes said the sole reason why the case had been brought on was that defendants' parents were supporters of the other candidate. It was simply because these bovs were the sons of their fathers that they were brought there. He regarded it as the most ridiculous and trumpery case ever brought into court. He asked if the Bench were of opinion that he had a case to answer. The magistrates being of opinion that there was, Mr. Hughes read the statute, which stated that there must be proof of actual damage before they could convict. Besides, he submitted that the boys had done all they could, under the circumstances, after performing the most trumpery of boyish freaks—viz., kicking a basket.—The Chairman But there is animus proved owing to the election?—Mr. Hughas That is beside the question but these boys are only here because they are the sons of their fathers. The only question to decide is, whether there had been injury caused to the basket, and what was the extent. I ask you if this case would have been brought there if the election had gone in com- plainant's favour .'—The Clerk I don't think the value of the basket has anything to do with it. We have the same right.—Mr. Hughes You have the right, certainly but if every case was of tne same terrible seriousness, we would all have a conviction recorded against in some form or other during our lives.—The Chairman said it certainly was a very trumpery case, and it would have been better if it had not been brought there. Still, these four boys had no business whatever to obstruct this little boy and take from him the basket. Ifthedefen-, dants liked to pay the costs of the case they would not record a conviction.—Mr. Hughes What aro the costs ? I ask that no witness's costs be allowed. You did not allow them in a similar case last Saturday which was more serious.—The Chairman 3s. 10d. each.—Mr. Hughes I advise them to pay it, but if it had been a large sum I would have advised them to appeal. SERIOUS ASSAULT ON THE POLICE.—Walter Drake, a labourer, of no fixed abode, was brought up in custody charged with assaulting Police-con- stable William Bailey, at Maesteg, on the 19th instant.—Complainant stated that he went at about six o'clock on the day in question to a lodg- ing-house in Rock-street, where he saw defendant, who was staggering drunk. Witness wanted him to go to bed. Aftor using bad language at witness defendant was put on the bed. and from there he caught hold of a stick near and struck witness violently over the oye, causing a wound about an inch and a quarter long, which bled profusely. Witness closed with him. and proceeded to take him to the police-station, but bad to call assist- ance. owing to defendant's violence, and sub- sequently was taken in a cart.—Sent to goal for three months with hard labour. ASSAULTING A BOY UNDERGROUND—William John Handcock. collier. Maesteg. was brought up in custody charged with unlawfully wounding a boy nismed David Morris, in the Garth Colliery, on the 25th inst.—Mr. T. J. Hughes appeared for the defence, and pleaded guilty to a charge of common assault.—Complainant, who appeared with a large bandage over his forehead, said, owing to acci- dentally missing the" scotch. a tram ran down the line. Defendant came up shortly afterwards and asked him why he allowed it. and raised his hand as if to strike him, but his master prevented him. Defendant then went to the back of the tram, and cursed and sworn ah witness, who called him a ugly old lump." Defendant then caught hold of the lump of coal (produced) and struck him on the forehead.—Cross-examined His master did not tell him n.)h to be so impudent to defendant. He did not call defendant a lazy b ."—Tho Bench decided upon treating it as a case of common assaul1". and Mr. Hughes xxklressel the Bench, stating that dofoudant had no intention of hitting the boy, who w is in the dark. He had also re- ceived great provocation from the boy. who was very impudent.—A line of :£ 1 5s., including costs, was imposed. THE RECEXT REVOLVER AC IDENT AT KENFIG HILL.—A young man named John Llewellyn, Kenfig IIill, pleaded guilty to being in possession of a revolver, for which he had not taken out any licence. on tho 23th September last, and he was fined £1, including costs.—Benjamin Davies, also of the same place, was similarly charged. This was the man who was in company with the un- fortunate man Baker when the latter was fatally shot.—He was fined ,-€1 including cost.—Mr. Harold, an officer of the Inland Revenue, ap- peared for the prosecution. The Bench hoped that this would be a warning to others, not to carry firearms, as if they had any more cases of this sort. thay would have to deal more severly with them. ASSAULT IN A "BARBER'S SHOP.—Griffith Wil- liams. farm servant, at Braichycymmer Farm, Garw Valley, summoned Thos. Mason, collier, of the same place, with assaulting him on the previous Saturday night.—Complainant stated that while at tho barber's shop defendant became abusive and struck witness three or four times.— The barber (LI. Williams) corroborated this state- ment. aud defendant was sent to goal for ten days, and to pay the costs £1 3s. 2., or in default seven days in addition.

STEALING A SHIRT.—Jane Ricketts, Tyncwydd, Treherbert, was charged with stealing a shirt, value 8s., the property of William Mainwaring, also of Tynewydci. about the SOthOctober last.—It appears that Sirs. Mainwaring had left the shirt in the front room of the house some days previous to the above date, and when she went to look for it on th" 30th it was gone. On inquiry it was found to have been pawned at Treherbert for 2s. 6d.— Inspector Rutter. -who arrested the prisoner, said he found her in the pawn shop in question pledging an umbrella.

From tin I. evidence adduced it appears that the rails anc .'•sleepers had somehow or other slipped dowr 1 -the tip to an incline leading to a qurrry belonging I ifc the defendant Willie, aud that Davies had beer •"•thinking it would bitter to save the parti rather than let them be burned under t-h( rubbish," put them on a tram. and conveyed them t( the iji.tarry.

Pv.TREFI'ANS;IIEAVILY PUNISHED.—For assaulting William Henr^ Doughty, near Llantwit Station, oi Sunday night, James Hengest and Thomas Wil liams were brought up in custody. The two de fendaiits met jDoughty on the -road about nim o'clock, n,lld throw him to the groisnd, kicked him and attempted no steal his watch.

Blaeugarw, was brought up on remand at the Bridgend Police-court. Mr. Spowett (Messrs. Morgan and Rhys). Pontypridd, appeared for the prosecutor, and Mr. T. J. Hughes (Bridgend) de- fended.—The evidence of the cashier (Mr. Evan Griffiths), which appeared in last week's Star, was read over.-—-Evan Treharne said it was his duty on the 13th October last to measure the men's work in the Victoria seam. He visited the heading worked by defendant, and asked him for his number, which prisoner gave as 484. On the 7th November (pay day) witness had to give out the pay tickets at the machine-room. Prisoner came there early, and asked for ticket 484. Witness J refused it at first, and a conversation ensued as to some work left incompleted, and. failing to find the manager to refer it to him, witness took 10s. for tools supplied and 5s. for the incompleted work. Cross-examined- by Mr. Hughes He kept no record of the members himself, but there were records, both at the machine-room and office. A man received a number immediately when employed by the company. Evan Howells had been employed there about six weeks, and had received two pays. When measuring witness took note of the number and names in his pocket book, but he had not it with him that day. He would swear that defendant never gave him No. 49-1. It was 484. K o. 494 belonged to a man named Shott.

PETERSTONE ANNUAL HEDG- ING AND DITCHING MATCH. The fourth annual hedging and ditching match at Peterstone-super-Ely was held under very suc- cessful circumstances on Friday last. The weather was very favourable, good work was done in the various competitions, and the interest evinced in the match was exceedingly keen. much more in fact than on previous years. The success achieved during the day reflects the greatest credit upon the officials and committees, who worked most energetically towards making this year's event satisfactory in every sense. In Messrs Thomas Rees (Pontyclown). Daniel Jones (\ishla, ien- llyne). and J. Smith (New Wallace, Wenvoc), the society had secured very able adjudicators they showed themselves thoroughly conversant In every detail of the work, but owing to the excelieni, manner in which several of the competitors acquitted themselves, the adjudicators had far from an easy task sot them in deciding upon the comparative merits of the men in the various classes. However, it must be confessed that they discharged their responsible duties to the com- plete satisfaction of all. The match was held on land at Backway Farm, kindly placed at the disposal for the day by Mr. William Rees. The competitions commenced at nine o'clock, and finished shortly after three o'clock in the afternoon. The match was well patronised during the day.

He said it Ind been sug- gested that the match committee should extend its sphere of usefulness by hold- ing the annual meetings alternately at St. Nicholas, Bonvilstone, &c.
