NEATH. URBAN SANITARY AUTHORITY. — The monthly meeting of this authority was held on Monday Mr. David Davies presided. Tha unsatisfactory state of the Queen-street, back road was referred to, and the Mayor undertook to see the several owners and effect a binding arrangement, for contributing towards the xpense of effectually draining the road. Mr. John Lancey attended the meeting, and asked that the pending garnishee proceedings against his tenant might be with- drawn; but as he made no offer for payment of the amount claimed for private improvements, the authorit;, decided to continue the proceedings. £150 was ordered to be advanced to the contrac- tors in re-poet of Bowen-street Sewerage Works. The surveyor was directed to discontinue covering limestone metalling with ashes. The scavengers applied for an extra allowance owing to the very unfavourable weather they have had to contend with since they took the contract. The board declined to accede to the request. The correspon- dence between the clerk of the Neath Canal Com- pany and tlie Town-clerk was read' with reference to an agreement to be entered into as to the ease- ment on carrying the Bowen-street drainage under the Neath Canal. The board decided to take no action in the matter. TOWN COUNCIL.—The quarterly meeting of the council was held on Tuesday, when Mr. David Davies presided. The head-constable reported that 87 cases only had been heard during the quarter, being a decrease of 40 as compared with the pre- ceding period of three months; 127 reports of gas lamps unlit were recorded; 655 vagrants were relieved, being an increase of 229 on the previous report. The Surveyor reported that the gas register for the past, month showed a minimum reading of 14, and a maximum of 14 75 candle li°-ht, being-above the standard. Theannualreportof the medical-officor of health showed that the total number of deaths during the year was 194, being at the rate of 17 7 per 1,000. No deaths were recorded during the year from small-pox, measles, diphtheria, or diarrhoea.

The town is above the average in its sanitary condition, fairly drained, well lighted, with a liberal uiipply of good filtered water. The town-clerk was instructed to prepare draft. petitions against the pending Bills for powers to construct railways from tho Rhondda Valley acrosa. the Neath Rivers, and to convene a special meeting of the town council to consider the course to be pursued generally in the matter. The ac- count of the town-clerk for expenses incurred under the Registration Act was passed.
