THE ADJOURNED MEETING. All the members mentioned above attended the adjourned meeting of the Council on Wednesday night, but the major portion of the business was conducted in private. There were between 70 and 80 applicants for the post of Surveyor and Inspector of Nuisances, and the Council bad reduced this number to the five following Messrs H. T. Taylor (Hoylake), J. P. Linnell (Prestatyn), Chas. L. Roberts (Colwyn Bay), A. Hobson (Sheffield), aud F. Wilkinson (Atherstone). Four of these were in attendance at the meeting in order that the Councillors might I have an opportunity of interviewing them, but it was not considered necessary to have Mr Jas. Linnell present, he being a local man. The private proceedings lasted about an hour and a half, and immediately the public and press representatives were admitted, the names were put to the vote. Mr Greenwood proposed,_and Mi Griffith seconded, that Mr Taylor be appointed, but only these two gentlemen voted in support. The next name put to the meeting was that of Mr Roberts, on the proposition of Mr John Williams, seconded by Mr Peter Ellis. Mr Roberts secured nine votes, and the Chairman then announced it was unnecessary to place any other names before the meeting as all the councillors had voted. Mr Scott, therefore, formally proposed, and Mr Parry Williams, seconded, that Mr Roberts be appointed Inspector of Nuisances and Surveyor to the Council at £100 per year. This was put to the meeting, and the same nine voted in favour, Mr Greenwood and Mr Griffith abstaining from voting. t Mr Roberts was then called into the room, and informed by the Chairman that he was the successful applicant, and hoped that the confidence placed in him by the Council would be merited. The Chairman went on to speak of the excellent testimonials Mr Roberts had been able to present. He hoped he would carry out his duties honestly and straightforwardly. Mr J. B. Linnell also spoke, saying that Mr Roberts must consider himself fortunate in securing the appointment, as he had been run close by another very capable applicant.
