Three cases of scarlet fever were reported, one of them having proved fatal. INSPECTOR OF NUISANCES' REPORT.—This report was also read. It stated that several notices had been served to abate nuisances during the past fortnight. SURVEYOR'S REPORT.—The surveyor (Mr. Owen Williams) was. unavoidably absent from the meeting. His report for the fortnight was submitted. It contained very little of general public interest. Several plans of buildings were submitted, and the surveyor having reported that they were in accordance with the bye-laws they were passed. POLICE REPORT.- -The Inspector of Police reported James Rees, driver, Cemetery-road, for overloading his brake. When the police saw Rees about the matter, he replied that three of the passengers were working men who were returning from work, and were having a ride for nothing.—Mr. Llewellyn Mr. Rees is not very well versed in the law. He is a work- ing man. — Chairman No doubt. — MA Llewellyn: 1 think that it will be enough to caution him.—The Chairman said that he had no doubt but that the working men in question were coming from public-houses.—Mr. Owen Harries No they were not. Chairman (sharply): How do you know -Mr. Owen Harries I do happen to know that they were not.— Chairman Were you there ?—Mr. Owen Harries: No.—Chairman: Well then.—Mr. O. Harries repeated that he knew that he was rieht in what he was saying, and that bhe men were ttot coming from public-houses.—Mr. Llewellyn Where are we to draw the line t— The Chairman said that he was in favour of summoning Rees. He proposed that. Those in favour say Aye." There was but an inarticulate reply, and the chairman said rather sharply Speak out. I can't hear you. Those in favour say Aye." Five of the councillors shouted "Aye" in such a manner that the chairman could hear them this time, and four said "No."—The Chairman said that "the ayes had it," and it was decided to summon Rees. THE AUDIT.—Mr. Dolby drew attention to the large amount of arrears in connection with Sivate improvements, and trusted that the >uncil would give the matter their attention.—- The Chairman quite agreed that the matter was worthy of the earliest and fullest attention, as the arrears were very large. 0 COMPENSATION.—Mr. Hodges, Commercial- place, Aberdare, wrote to say that whilst the workmen of the Council were doing some work on the street opposite his shop a stone flew against one of the windows of his shop, and broke it. He would, of course, expect compen- sation from the Council.—The Clerk I men- tioned the matter to the chairman when I got the letter.—Chairman And I instructed the surveyor to examine the place and report. I think that we should let the matter stand over until the next meeting. There is no douht we are liable. We might as well admit that at once. If the glass was broken by owe of our workmen we are certainly liable. It was decided to let the matter stand over. RORERTSTOWN.—A letter was read from the clerk of the School Board drawing the Coun- cil's attention to the bad state of the road lead- ing to Robertstown Schools. So bad was the road that it aftected the school attendance, and steps should be taken to put it in a proper state of repair. Chairman There is no doubt that something should be done. I propose that the surveyor report as to the condition of the road in question. That is the only course to adopt. -The proposition was agreed to. MISCELLANEOUS.—A letter was received from the Clerk of the Peace asking the Council to send the medical officer's annual report as soon as possible.—A communication was also received respecting the adoption of the Infectious Diseases Notification Act.—It was pointed out that Aberdare was the only place in the county where the Act had not been adopted. —No action was taken in the matter. -It was re- ported that the collector of the water rate was ill, and the Chairman said that he hoped he would soon be well again.
