At Swansea Police Court on Tuesday the magistrates heard objections to apportion- ments for private street. improve-merts in Clayton street. There axe in CIa^don-street more than 20 houses, and objection was made on behalf of Mrs. Susan Thomas (one of the owners) by Mr. E. Harris, who first contended that ob- jections should be heard within six months after the expiry of a month from thfi date of the first publication of the resoiution of the Council approving of the specification. In this instanco the da.te of publication was | in October, 1906. Therefore he hold they conld not be heH.rd. Mr. ] vaurence Richards (who represented the Corporation) submitted that what the (xw-poration had to do was to hear the oh- jection and the magistrates decided they oould hear it. but agreed to stale a case, if necessary. Mr. Roderick, Corporation dark, was j called. MT. Bell, bo rough surveyor, said that an amended apportionment amounted to JD549 10s. ill. Improvements were necessary and the charges on the frontages reasonable. ¡ Mr. E. Hams objected tha-t the appor- tionment had been made on an incorrect, hafis. A method had beem adopted that WM favourabte to tho Corporation. The road w?.s a convenience to the Brynhyiryd SciJiooI. He a<sked the magistrates to .ay that- the amounts had not boon properly alp- portioned. Brynhyfrvd School should* pay its proper proportion. The magistrates, aftm a. retirement, de- cided by a majority that Mr. Harris' objec- tion was not v.UM, and upheld the appor- tionment. tionment. In of provisional apportionments in Waun wen-road, Mr. E. Harris represented the following objectors :—Thomas Jones, Darnel Lsaue, Thomas Morris, David. Phi!- liiips, John Isaac, Isabella Thomas, and Wm. morgan. Mr. T. R. Harris represented Thomas James. Mr. E. Harris objected that a strip of Chemical -road side had been taken in by the Corporation in order to widen the road. In doing this the cost of the widening had been added to the apportionment. This the Cor- I poration had no right to do; widening of roads runst be done at the expense of the Corporation. Magistrates upheld the objection and quashed the apportionment. Mr. T. R. Harris' objection that his client had already carried out certain work was met by the Corporation, who diedncted two ¡ sums of £3 15s a<nd F,2 12. 6d. from his original apportionment. Three objectors to apportionments in Goed- eilt did not appear.
