BARRY AND CADOXTON I BURIAL BOARD. A monthly meeting of the Burial Board was held on Tuesday night at the Board Offices, Vere- street. Mr. R. S. Robinson presided, and there were also present Dr. Powell, Rev. J. Price, and Messrs. J. Rees, H. Davis, Gilead Brock, W. Copp, B. G. Davis, Mr. J. Arthur Hughes (clerk), and Mr. Bruton (architect).—The minutes of the last meeting were confirmed, and the clerk and care- taker's petty cash accounts examined.—The trea- surer's books were examined, and the sum to the credit of the Board was found to be JE116 19s. 4d.— The Clerk read his report, which stated that there had been 13 burials, and the amount received in fees amounted to £ 9 Is., whilst the expenditure had been £ 10. The following bills were passed, and cheques signed for the amounts :—Mr. Isaac Thomas, for watering-cans. 2s. Mr. Lewis Evans, printing, 4s. 6d. Shaftesbury Hotel, for use of room, at 3s. per meeting, 15s.; BARRY DOCK NEWS, for advertising, 18s.; SOUTH WALES STAR, ditto, 4-2 2s. WESTERN MAIL, £ 2 2s.-The Visiting Committee did not present any report, as at the meeting arranged only one of the committee (Mr. Gilead Brock) attended.-Mr. Brock complained of the unsuitability of the hour, as the working- men members of the Board were greatly inconve- nienced by the hour arranged for the committee meeting.—Mr. Copp pointed out that the term for which the Visiting Committee had been elected had expired.-The Clerk suggested that a com- mittee should be appointed who could spare the time.—Ultimately it was decided that Messrs. Rees, O.Adams. B. G. Davies, and H. Davies should form the next Visiting Committee, and on the proposition of Mr. Copp it was decided that the first meeting of the committee should be held on Saturday week next, at 7 in the evening.—Mr. Thomas (The Hayes) was down on the agenda to present a report in connection with the compensation to be paid Mr. Johnson for compensation, and the Clerk reported that he had seen Mr. Thomas on the matter, and that gentleman had told him he had seen Mr. Johnson, and he would prepare his report by the next meeting.—The Clerk said he wished to remark on a parapraph in a letter received from Messrs. Godder, Holme and Co., with reference to the purchase of additional land. They said that Mr. Forrest's fee as surveyor was seven guineas.— Mr. Rees asked if a similar fee was paid when other portions of land had been purchased.-The Clerk replied in the affirmative, and said he believed Mr. Forrest did not receive a regular salary as surveyor of the Wenvoc estate, but was paid by fees of this kind. Tenders were opened for the erection of a cemetery chapel at Merthvrdovan. Nine tenders were received as follows :—Mr. W. Howells, High-street, Barry, building to be erected of Daulton stone, £1,325, or of Mansfield stone, £1,680 Mr. H. J. Mon:>y, Park-crescent, Barry, £ 1,500; Mr. J. Sales, Cow- bridge-road, Cardiff, £ 1,3:58; Mr. Frank Ashley, Burfington-street.Holton,Daulton stone, £ 1,552 15s, orMananeld stone, .£ 194 extra Mr. A. Porch, Car- diff, ;e 1,781; Mr. F. Small, £1,219; John Watts, 64, Station-streeet, Barry Dock, Daulton stone, £1,750; or Mansfield stone, £ 190 extra Mr. E. J. Ince, Cadoxton, £1,204 8s. Id.; Jenkins and Arnold, £1,181; Mansfield stone, Y,296 17s. extra. —Mr. Copp inquired the amount of the architects' estimate.—The Clerk replied it was set down in the advertisement to be £ 1,000.—Mr. Copp thought that they were hardly justified in exceeding the estimate, but, rather, he considered they should keep under the estimate. He instanced the very neat cemetery chapels built in the neighbourhood, where there were two flooors and various other things they did not require.- Mr. Bruton said he could reduce the estimates so as to make the sum for building not to exceed £ 1.000. For instance, by using B.1th stone instead of Daulton or Mansfield stone, they could save several hundreds at once. He suggested that as Messrs. Jenkins and Arnold's tender was the lowest, they should put him in communication with Messrs. Jenkins and Arnold, with the view of seeing whether they could not reduce their tender by his reducing the estimates.—Mr. Copp said that as Mr. Ince's tender was only £ 19 higher than Messrs. Jenkins and Arnold's, and he was a. local man. therefore he thought Mr. Ince should be asked to give an amended tender as well. — Dr. Powell said Mr. Small had put up most of the best houses in Barry. Mr. Copp moved as a resolution, that the architect be asked to go through the amended tenders of the three builders mentioned.—The Rev. J. Price seconded.—Mr. Copp said that they were not justified in spending more than £ 850.—Mr. Bruton said they could not do it below 4 1,000, as wages were very high. He would carefully go through the estimates and see if the items could be reduced. He would also ask Messrs. Ince, F. Small, Jenkins, and Arnold to re-price the altera- tions.—Mr, Copp's -resolution was carried. A dis- cussion next ensued upon the question of a clerk of the works of the building.-The Clerk remarked that it was stated in the advertisement that the Board would provide a clerk of the works.—Ulti- mately ,Mr.Copp proposed that the Board make appli- cation to the Local Board to know whether they would allow one of their inspectors to overlook the works, and, if so, what would they charge.- Mr. Brock seconded.—Mr. B. J. Davis moved as an amendment that a permanent clerk of the works be engaged.-The Rev. J. Price seconded.-On a division the amendment was carried by a majority of one.—Mr. Copp proposed that an adjourned special meeting be held next Tuesday at one o'clock.—Mr. Davis seconded.-This concluded the business.
