MACHYNLLETH URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL, Tuesday, August 14th. Present Messrs J M Breeze, chairman Edmund Gillart, T Parsons, John Micah, D Smith, R LI Jones, Evan Humphreys, Richard Gillart, Dr W R Williams, Messrs John Row- lands, clerk; D P Jones, assistant clerk and D Thomas, inspector. A Claim. The Clerk stated that a Committee had been appointed to consider the matter of the claim 0 Mr John Davies for damage caused to his land by' the trial pits in connection with the sewerage works. The Committee would report that day.- The Chairman, bringing up the report of the Com- mittee, stated that they had seen Mr Davies and had pointed out the high price he asked, and it was ultimately agreed to reduce the claim from JEIO to £ 4 10s.—On the proposition of Mr Evan Hum- phreys, seconded by Mr Edmund Gillart, it was acreed to pay the claim. -a- Time of Meeting. Referring to the minutes, the Clerk remarked that the motion to change the hour of meeting had been deferred.—Mr Parsons When ?-The Clerk At the meeting of the 3rd July.—Mr Parsons Cannot the matter come on now ? I do not like: my name appearing on the agenda for two or three months.—Mr R Gillart: It looks very well some- times. (Laughter.) -Later in the meeting, Mr Parsons remarked that the attendance at recent meetings of the Council went a long way to prove that a change was necessary. He proposed that the time should be changed to five o'clock in the evening.—The Chairman On what day ?-Mr Parsons The first Tuesday in the month.—Mr E Humphreys seconded the proposition.—Mr_ R LI Jones remarked that services were held in the churches and chapels of the town on Tuesday nights. He suggested that the meetings should be held on Monday evenings.—Mr E Humphreys The bulk of the councils in North Wales are held at night.—Mr E Gillart stated that he would be quite ready to fall in with the majority of the councillors, but from past experience they had seen that meetings held in the evenings were not so well attended.—Mr D Smith Hear, hear.-Con- tinuing, Mr Gillart stated that they had tried the experiment before, and although he would prefer it, at the same time the attendance in the evening was worse than in the morning. For that reason, he could not support the proposition.—Mr D Smith proposed an amendment that the time of meeting should remain as at present.—Mr R LI Jones pro- posed that the meeting should be held at five o'clock on Monday.—Mr Parsons withdrew his motion in favour of Mr Jones's proposition and on being put to the vote, four voted for the proposi- tion and four for the amendment.-The Chairman gave his casting vote in favour of no change in the time of meeting.— Mr Parsons Very satisfactory. It will be better next time.—Mr Gillart If Mr Parsons wisheb to bring it on again he can do so. The Flooded Road. The Clerk stated that be had written to the Montgomery Council drawing their attention to the inconvenience caused by the flooding of the river Dovey, but had received no reply. Postal Facilities. The Postmaster wrote stating that the fourth delivery of letters in the town seemed to be of little use and asking the Council's opinion of the subititution of the delivery by an over-counter delivery.—The Chairman thought it wou I be a pity to etop the delivery because it conveye I letter- from Corris, Aberdovey, Towyn, and Aberystwyth. —Mr T Parsons It would be more important to allow that delivery to remain and to drop the five o'clock delivery.—Mr E Gillart remarked that the object of discontinuing the delivery was that the Post Office did not want to pay a salary to an additional staff. He propoied that the Clerk should write stating that the CoDncil considered the change undesirable.—Mr Parsons seconded the proposition, which was carried. An Application. An application by Mr Joha Micah, to enclose a portion of the Park Common near his fiald, was referred to the Committee. Committees. The Clerk stated that several committees were called for August 3rd. There had been no quorum at the Streets Committee, the Fairs and Markets Committee, the Footpaths Committee, and the Clock Tower Committee.-Mr R Gillart Hear, hear.—A meeting of the Streets Committee was held on Aug. 10th, when it was decided to recom- mend the Council to accept the tender of the Gas Company, at 38s 3d, for six new lanterns,, and to place a lamp at Maengwynissa.—Mr T Parsons I object, Mr Chairman. Why should the Com- mittee make a distinction between Maengwynissa and another part ?—Mr R Gillart: We are getting nearer t.he Barracks.—Mr R LI Jones Perhaps th it one will come. (Laughter).—Later in the meeting, Mr Jones enquired the position with regard to the BArracks lamp. He proposed that the matter should be placed on the agenda for the next meeting.—Mr R Gillart seconded the pro- position, which was carried. Jbairs and Markets. The Markets and Fairs Committee reported that they had considered the question of the obstruction of the streets and had decided to recommend the Council to instruct the Clerk to write to tradesmen and other offenders requesting them to clear the streets by eight p.m.— Mr Parsons remarked that he would support the recommendation provided the word tradesmen was left out —The Chairman The tradesmen are the worst offenders.—The report was adopted.—A recommendation by the Com- mittee that the site of the old reservoir on Park Common, which was dangerous, should be filled up was also adopted. Pavements. The Chairman stated that a meeting of the Pave. ments Committee had been called to meet at the Town Clock, but, o-ving to the rain the meeting had to be abandoned.—Mr R Gillart suggested that the Surveyor should prepare a sketch plan of the streets showing the site of the proposed pavements.-The suggestion was adopted. The Sewerage Works. The Clerk stated that in reply to a recent letter from the Local Government Board asking if the Council intended to use the site selected by them in view of the opposition manifested at the euquiry, he intended writing, if the Council approved, stat- ing that the site was considered objectionable.- Mr E Gillart remarked that the letter would not be a proper reply. The Local Government Board enquired if the Council intended using the site.- It was eventually agreed to write stalling that the Council did not intend using the site. Query. Mr Evan Humphreys enquired if the additional land utilised at the Cross Pipes had been paid for, and if not, why not ? Circumstances had arisen which made it necessary that a settlement should be arrived at without further delay.—On the pro- position of Mr R Gillart, it was agreed to pay the claim. Motor Cars. Mr R Gillart stated that many motor cars and motor cycles passed through the town and accidents had happened and would happen if they were allowed to travel at the pace they did. He thought notices should be placed warning motorists to travel through the town at a reasonable pace. Dr. Williams Hear, hear.—Mr R LI Jones seconded the proposition, which was agreed to. Hedges. Mr R Gillart called attention to the inconvenience caused to persons driving past the Workhouse by reason of the overhanging hedges of a field close to. Perhaps the Surveyor would see to the matter.— The Surveyor promised to do so. The Golf Links. Mr Parsons enquired if the Council had any power to advertise the Golf Links. They were a valuable asset to the town.—The Clerk replied in the negative and the matter dropped. Other matters were taken in Committee.
THE COST OF RELIGIOUS TEACHING. The Appeal Court on Wednesday week gave judgment in the case of the King v the West Riding (Yorkshire) County Coun- cil, which raised an important question- whether a local education authority was bound under the Education Act of 1902 to pay for denominational religious instruction m non-provided schools. The West Riding County Council alone among English educa- tion authorities took up the position that they were responsible for secular instruction only in these schools, and they deducted from the teachers' salaries amounts which, as they, said, fairly represented the cost of religious instruction. The appeal was against the de- cision of the Divisional Court which made absolute a writ of mandamus directing the council to pay balances of teachers' salaries due. The Master (fl the Roils, in giving judg- ment, said that it was, as it seemed to him, clearly consistent with the intention of Par- iiament, as expressed in the statute, that while religious instruction might he given in non-provided schools, and while, if given, it must be in accordance with the provision of the trust deeds, the liability to pay for it should rest with those in whom the statute vested control, out of such funds as might be at their disposal. For those reasons, he thought the appeal ought to be allowed. Lord Justice Farwell agreed with the Master of the Rolls, but Lord Justice Moul- ton dissented. The question of costs was reserved.
DEATH OF THE HON. FREDK. HANBUU1-TK AU Y. The death of the Hon Frederick S A Han- bury-Tracjj> OClOUIT on Thursday of last week at Brighton. The deceased was in his 58th year and was the fourth son of the se- cond Lord Sudeley. He married in 1870 the daughter of Sir Thomas E Winnington, Bart. In 1877, on the death of his brother and the consequent succession of the Hon Chas. D R Hanbury-Tracy (then member for the Mont- gomery boroughs), deceased was put forward for the representation of the constituency in the Liberal interests. At a public meeting held in Newtown in May, 1877, presided over by the late Mr James Hall, Mr Hanbury- Tracy was unanimous-v adopted the Liberal candidate on the motion of Mr George Thorne seconded by the late Mr David Davies, M.P. In the contest he had for his opponent Lord Castlereagh whom he defeated by a majority of 329 votes. Four .subsequent ejections he fought' against Sir PTyoe Pryce-Jones. In 1880 he triumphed by a majority of 361; in 1885 Sir Pryoe was returned by a majority of 83, but the following year Mr Tracy re- gained the seat by 173. and six years later (1892) was again ousted by Sir Pryce, the poll being Pryoe-Jones, 1,406, Hanbury- Tracy 1,288. It" was out of the conduct of this election that the memorable petition arose. When Mr Tracy was first returned for the boroughs he unreservedly declared himse.f in favour of disestablishment in Wales, though at the time it did not occupy) a pro- minent place among Welsh questions, or, at all events, it had not then been brought within the range of practical politics. He was a loyal supporter of Mr Gladstone on the question of Irish Home Rule, and on all the Welsh questions advocated by the Liberal party he was very pronounced in his pro- gressive views. The deceased was the last member of the Hanbury-Tracy family who had so long up- held the Liberal flag in the boroughs. After his defeat in 1892, Mr Tracv. was never pro- minently seen in political life.
