DINAS POWIS HIGHWAY BOARD. The monthly meeting of the Dinas Powis High- way Board was held on Wednesday last at the St. Nicholas Court-house. General Lee presided, there being also present Mr. John Cory, J.P., Mr. D. T. Alexander, Mr. William Thomas (Sully), Mr. W. D. Huntley, Mr. R. Lougher, Mr. O. Williams, Mr. J. Thomas, Mr. R. M. Savours, Mr. D. W. Savours, Mr. E. Thomas, Mr. Oliver Thomas, Mr. D. Evans, Mr. D. Lougher, Mr. Thomas (Llantrithyd), Mr. John Morris (clerk), and Mr. F. Laurens (surveyor). Tenders for the maintenance and repair of the roads were opened, and the following accepted Llancarvan, Mr. William Davies: Leckwith, Mr. John Morgan Llantrithyd, Mr. Edward Thomas Michaelstone-le-Pit, Mr. Edmund Lewis West St. Donatt's, Mr. William Evans Sully and Laver- nock, Mr. Jacob Ridant Porthkerry, Mr. Timothy Sheen Dinas Powis, Mr. Edmund Lewis Log- wood Road, Mr. W. Griffiths; Wenvoe, Mr. Rees John St. Lythan's, Mr. George Thomas Pen- mark, Mr. W. James and Pendoylan, Mr. William Evans. The Surveyor reported that he had been to St. Nicholas, and viewed the land on Mrs. Thomas' farm, ever which the contractor had hauled stones, and, with the consent of two guardians who were with him, recommended that she should be given £ 5 compensation. The Board decided to do this. The Surveyor reported that the Romilly Estate owners had given three months' notice of the in- tention to dedicate a portion of the road running through Porthkerry Park to the public, and asking that it might be taken over by the Board as a highway, to be kept in repair by the Board. The road was 1,483 yards in length, of the average width of 10 feet. Mr. Cory questioned whether the road was much improved by the Romilly Estate, especially in winter. Mr. Alexander remarked that is was within their discretion whether they took over the road. Mr. Cory had raised a very important point, and it transpires that only a portion of this road was intended to be dedicated to the public use. It would be a great disadvantage, to his mind, if only a portion of the road was taken over. The Board decided that the matter should be referred for the Surveyor to report on. Th- Surveyor presented his estimate of the ex- penditure for the ensuing year of £ 3,238 l(i8. 8d., and recommended that a rate of 8d. in the £ should be made. Mr. Alexander and several other guardians s thought 8d. was a little too much. and that the surveyor should endeavour to, as far as efficiency would permit, reduce his estimate. On the proposition of Mr. John Cory, seconded by Mr. Oliver Williams, it was decided that the rate for the ensuing half-year should be 7d. The Surveyor reported that after bills due were paid there would be a deficit on the past year's;working of about £ 140.
