BARRY AND CADOXTON PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE. A meeting of the Public Works Committee of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board was held on Tuesday evening last at Cadoxton, present-Mr W. Thomas (chairman), Alderman J. C. Meggitt, DrP. J. O'Donnell, Mr F. P. Jones-Lloyd, Mr J. Arthur Hughes (clerk), and Mr J. C. Pardoe (surveyor). DRAINAGE OF HOUSES AT BARRY. A discussion took place as to a complaint made by Mr E. R. Moxey with reference to a water- course nuisance on the hill at Barry, and it was pointed out that Captain Murrell's and other houses were not drained. The cost of the construction of a drain in this instance, the surveyor pointed out, would be about £ 300, but Mr Meggitt stated that no drainage could be formed until the land had been utilised, and the roads defined.-It was resolved that the inspector be directed to report upon the drainage and water supply of the houses in question. A KNOTTY POINT FROM HOLTON-ROAD. The Surveyor read a communication from Mr Herbert Lewis offering an easement of land for the widening of a portion of Holton-road, opposite the entrance to Crossways-street, on condition that certain concessions were granted to the holders of the land, whereon six shops were intended to be built.—The discussion which followed was directed as to whether it was expedient or legal to permit one of the houses to be built over the main sewer. Dr O'Donnell strongly opposed permission being granted, and said the offer seemed to him to be a bribe to the Board. Beside, it was dangerous to allow the application on sanitary grounds.—Mr Jones-Lloyd: I don't think it is a bribe it is a case of quid pro quo.-Eventually it was decided to refer the ques- tion to the clerk to report upon the Board's legal position thereon. THE NEW ROAD OVER DINAS POWIS COMMON. Mr Dashwood-Caple, architect, wrote on behalf of Major-General Lee asking permission for the use of the steam-roller for the new road leading over Dinas Powis Common.-Dr O'DonnelI Shall we have it back ? (Laughter.)-The Chairman 0, yea.-It was resolved to grant the use of the roller on the usual terms. ANIMALS STRAYING IN THE DISTRICT. Dr O'Donnell suggested that the attention of the police be drawn to the large number of horses allowed to stray on the highway in Cadoxton. The nuisance was a source of public danger, and on Sunday {especially he had seen no less than twenty horses crossing and recrossing Court-road, and it was not safe for women and children to pass. QUARRYING UNDER THE MAIN SEWER, Mr D. Lore was reported to be quarrying close to the main sewer in the Cwms Quarry, Cadoxton, and it was his intention to excavate under the sewer.-The Chairman That is Dr Mil ward again. -The matter was referred to the clerk to legally report on the matter. FENCING OF DANGEROUS PLACES. It was resolved to properly protect all unfenced quarries or exposed public footpaths in the district, the latter leading from Coldknap and Porthkerry. THE CLERK OF WORKS. The public works in the district having been completed, it was decided to dispense with the services of the clerk of works. NEW PLANS. The following new building plans were pre- sented, against some of which objections were raised :—Two shops at the corner of Jewel-street, for Mr John Jones; shops and bakehouse at corner of George-street, for Mr J. Westall; house in Dock View-road for Mrs Ridler (the drainage to run at rear instead of underneath the premises); stable in Holton-road for Air John Jones conver- sion of stable in bakehouse, Holton-road, for Mr John Jones and addition to two shops in Holton- road, for Mr J. Price. PUBLIC FOOTPATHS. The Clerk reported that Mr R. Forrest, on be- half of Lord Romilly, had consented to turnstiles being placed across the public footpaths from The Parade to Coldknap, from Coldknap to Porthkerry, and Porthkerry to Knock-'em-down Cottage.—It was resolved to erect the turnstiles as reported.— By means of these paths, some of which have for years been regarded as private property, Mr Meggitt said the public will be able to go from Barry to Coldnap along the beach, thence over the cliff through Porthkerry Park Woods, and out by Knock-'m-down Cottage.-It was agreed that properly defined path be laid down, and that it be protected where it abuts on the cliff.-The Chairman directed attention to a public path which, he alleged, was being closed by Mr Cory, Porthkerry but the Clerk advised that this was situated outside the jurisdiction of the Board, and the matter dropped. BARRY HARBOUR SEWERAGE WORKS. Mr C. R. Walker, C.E., reported that good pro- gress was being made with the above works, and suggested the sum of :£1,100 being provisionally passed.—It was resolved to pay the engineer the sum of :£150 on account of commission on the contract.
