WHAT THEY DRINK AT ABERDARON. The Pwllheli Sanitary Authority have wisely not to resist the inevitable. They gave Notice of dissent from the proposed combination amtary districts, but on Wednesday Mr DOYLE fjWly intimated that the Board above would pro- use compulsion, and the notice of dissent i therefore withdrawn. The Authority would found it difficult to justify- their conduct in ^lectins to do the work for which they were 4POintecL and then attempting to prevent any- > else from doing it. They could not take the .'gh ground which some Boards have taken in re- nting the proposal, and contend that there was ^ttle room for improvement; but one member Ventured to assert that if the present system had failed, that, which was about to replace it would also. Possibly it may, for a single official: find it up-hill work to contend against the *pathy of the Pwllheli Authority, but the Local government Board are plainly bound to interfere hen the Sanitary Acts are set at defiance. The *wllhe]i Authority called in question some of Mr OYLE'S assertions at a recent Conference, and members seem to think it hard \j|*t they should be accused of de- IjS; the law when they have only Jfeated it as if it did not exist. They plead that fault has been a passive, not an active one. leave not definitely directed their officials have polluted air and contaminated water, dirty g and over-crowded dwellings alone, but ite>ts soon learn their employers' wishes, and ijbag been tacitly understood in Pwllheli Union people were to be allowed to die ? comfortably without being disturbed Out sanitary considerations. If they a^t to live longer than their forefathers, escape some of the diseases which 8°°d rQen before them were content to they mist speak out for them- Mves, as the inhabitants of Aberdaron A a done. Aberdaron must be a charming place live in. In the night time excrementa, for ^bich no other receptacle is provided, are emptied the river, and, next morniQg> the water is jr^nk by the inhabitant^. A <Jead dog here and j ere, putrifying in the river bed, scarcely calls attention. Of course fever and tvphoid are I^dom absent frosi this delightful region, and. members of the Sanitary Authority, m their apaclty as Guardians, have the opportunity of [Ending the public money in relieving poverty, stead of removing the disease which occasions ?• "The request of the Aberdaron Yestry, that it ay be supplied with pure water instead o^ the ^inary beverage of water and sewage, is, it is to be considered at a future meeting, but seems to be a pleasant fiction in the Pwll- Board-room, that questions of an unusual or "^oublesome kind will be discussed on a subse- ^ent occasion, which never arrives. Mr DOYLE, least, leads us to that conclusion by the re- marks which he made on Wednesday. Judging the inspector's report, presented to the Authority at the meeting, the sanitary standard Hot an inconveniently high one, and we should J^t be surprised if the conduct of the people of Aberdaron, In objecting to the use of the river I for dietetic purposes, was regilrde as unrea- sonably fastidious. If they persevere, however, they will gain their point, for the Board above has a strong objection to dead dogs and excre- menta as ingredients in the drinking water of the people.
