PWLLHELI Main Road Grant.—The County Council have voted £204 to the Town Council for main road maintenance during the past year. V' itiv —fho death rate of Pwllheli for 1913 was 10.5 and of Lleyn rural district 13.3 The birth-rate of Pwllheli was 17.5 and that of Lleyn 20.1. The death-rate of Pwllheli is one of the mosi; satisfactory in the county. LLEYN RURAL COUNCI-L, Wednesday, Sep- tember 30th.—Mr. J. Hughes-Parry, presiding. Taken Over. The Surveyor reported on the state of the road leadinrr from the beach at Aber- soch which the Parish Council desired the Council to take over Mr. Owen Jones .said the road carried a heavy traffic and served a wide district It was decided to take the road over. Completed. The Surveyor reported The completion of the bridge at Bryncroes. The cost was £ 54 4s. lid. against the estimate of £ 46; but it had to be borne in mind that the estimate was based on the price of materials two and a half years ago.- Several members expressed the satisfaction of The residents at the satisfactory char- acter of the work. Thanks Accorded. Mr. J. T. Jones announced that the County Council had decided to contribute J350 toward Ynysgoeh bridge and half the cost of Bryneroes bridge On the proposi- tion of Mr J R Jones a vote of thanks to the local County Council representatives was accorded. Hedge Levelling. Mr. D. H. Parry, surveyor, reported that the hedges in Llanaelhaiarn required clipping and topping. At one point where there was danger of motor collisions in con- sequence of narrow roads, sharp turnings, and high hedges the tenant offered to give the services of one Ulan conditionally on. the Council giving another workman. Mi-. R. O. Roberts observed that the need was greater for widening, the road than for topping the hedges Mr. J. T. Jones, said it was war time and the Council had to be careful of their resources Mr. R. O. Roberts: The greater the need to provide work for the unemployed.-—Mr. Owen Williams S'< id the request and the tenant's offer were reasonable.—The Surveyor was authorised to supply a man as requested. Barbed Wire. The Surveyor said the Council some time. ago issued notices that barbed wire at Afon^en Wflg to be removed and it had not been done.—Mr. Griffith Evans said the wire was not dangerous to man or h<>-ast.. He failed to see why the Council should insist on its removal The Chair- man said the matter had been discussed over and over again and Mr. Evans had never before stated that aspect of the case.- Mr. J. R. Jones said the Council should insist on carrying out the law before an accident happened Mr. D. Roberts said the wires were a distinct danger to the public The Surveyor explained that there were five w.ires placed on the outside of the posts. The Parish Council had repeatedly complained The Council give the Clerk instructions to serve a final notice calling on the owner, Mr. Wynn, to remove the wires, failing which to take legal proceedings. Vital Statistics. The Medical Officer reported twenty-one births and fifteen deaths, a low death-rate of ten per 1,000. Nine of those who died were over sixty-five years. There was no infantile mortality The report was deemed satisfactory. Lack of Water. Complaint was made of lack of a water supply for six houses at Penygroes, LIany- stumdy, and it was decided to call on the owners ( the representatives of the late Mr. R. Thomas, Criccieth) to provide a supply. Model Dwellings. The Clerk submitted correspondence re- ceived from Mr St John Hancock, secretary of the Welsh Housing Association, and ex- plained the presen-, position. As far as he couJd see, tHe Council could expect no further assistance from the Association which, judging by its attitude, was self- condemned as it was unable or unwilling to carry out the specific work it was in- tended to do. The Clerk read the follow- ing letter In reply to the postscript I had fully intended in my last letter to make clear that in the absence of other local building work I could not undertake the erection of the Mynytho houses, I gave as my reason for that, that Pwllheli Urban Council did not appear disposed to pro- ceed with the housing scheme in eon.se- quenee of which the journey to Mynytho for four houses only would be impossible owmg to the personal efforts it involves. It is a day's journey to Pwllheli and a motor journey from there to Mynytho, the difficulties, of which during the winter time you will fully appreciate. Had the Pwllheli scheme proceeded under my case at the same time the journey to Mynytho would not be such as would prevent my undertaking the business; and in point of fact, the Mynycho work is so interesting as to have induced me to make some sacri- fice to carry it out because in my opinion from local circumstances, I could set up such an object lesson in building cost as would be of the greatest service to the whole district. I do not put this on the ground of travelling expense or anything so paltry; but, entirely on the ground or physical inability to control so small a job at such a great distance without other work proceeding in the same locality. It is true that I am likely to carry out a substantial scheme at Criccieth and for that reason I suggested the Llanystumdwy scheme because of its convenience to Criccieth. I do not, however, consider the journey to Criccieth in the same light as a journey to Pwllheli, with which you will fully agree. In the letter referred to I endeavoured to make it clear also that personal supervision w&s more important than designing the cottages andfJur that reason my coiiirnitte,6 would not press me to prepare designs and unless I am also commissioned to superintend the comple- tion. These are matters of which I, as an architect with some experience, am the best judge; but I can fully understand that your Council may hold different views. In the event of the Council making other arrangements I need hardly say that, short of any professional advice and msponsi-, bility, my committee will be glad to give them the assistance they may seek. On the other hand, should the Pwllheli scheme proceed and it becomes necessary for me to visit Pwllheli in that connection I would keenly desire to carry out the Mynytho contract. In the event of the Council taking up the larger proposition already indicated all questions as to personal effort would vanish on my part."—The matter was left in the Clerk's hands to find a solution to the problem.

CARDIGANSHIRE MAIN ROADS. NORTHERN DIVISION. The quarterly meeting 01 the Main Roads Committee for the northern division of Cardiganshire County Council was held at Aberystwyth on Monday. There were .present Mr. J. G. Morris J)avies, Hafod; chairman; the Revs. T. Mason Jones, Trisant; T R. Morgan, Swyddtfynon; Dr. J. Morgan, Pontrhvdygroes; Dr J. James, Lodge Fark; Captain T. Doughton, Messrs Peter Jones, John Evans, C. M. WilRams, Robert Ellis, Aberystwyth Evan Richards, Penuwchfawr; E. J. Evans, Cnweybarcut; J. Pugh Lewis, Gogi nan; D. J. Williams, Tregaron; R J. R. Loxdale, Castle Hill; Thomas Morgan, Ysbytty; J. H. Davies, Owrtmawr; Percy 'Wilfiinson, Wenallt; Wiiliam Evans, Pontorwyd; Evan Evans, clerk; Ivor Evans, assistant clerk; and T. E. Owen, surveyor Summary of Expenditure. The Surveyor's summary of expenditure for the quarter ended September 5th showed that materials cost £255, manual labour L636, cartage of stones L132, mis- cellaneous R-7,3, total CI,107, or at the rate of E8 18s. lOd. per mile. Caution Signals. The Surveyor submitted a list of places where tho erection of cautiod signals would prove beneficial. He called special atten- tion to Rcse-cottages, near Glandyli Station and the cottage opposite Llanbadarn Post Office, both of which projected into the highway; as well as to the sharp corners at Llundainfacb. At those three places serious accidents were often only narrowly averted. Immediate steps should be taken to have the obstructions removed and the roads widened. About IGo caution signals would be necessary to protect the places enumerated, and the cost would be about JB1 per post. The Chairman said the total cost would be £100, and the question was whether tho Committee would be prepared to face so much expenditure. fhe general feeling seemed to be that the amount was exces- sive. Mr. J. II Davies asked how far it would help if hedges were cropped ? He sym- pathised with people who had to drive along the roads. It would be an advan- tage to them if hedges were cropped so that they could see motors coming. The Surveyor said the cropping of the hedges would be a gixxtt improvement: but he teared that unless the defaulters were summoned it would be difficult t-o induce farmers to crop the hedges. Dr. Morgan said a summons should be issued before a fatal aoeiderit occurred, and not after. Hedges were cropped in some places, but not sufficiently low. Tho drivers of motor cars could not fee over them. Hedges oould be easily cropped, and it wou!ld improve their appearance as well as oonfer a boon on the users of roads. The Surveyor was instructed to see that the hedges were properlv cut, and the question of erecting signals was deferred. Replying to Mr. C. M. Williams, the Surveyor said notices were served at the proper time. to crop the hedges, and Sir. Williams said if the notice were followed by prosecution they would have a good effect. Proceedings had been taken in previous years. Tregaron Urinal. In his report the Surveyor stated that the opening made in the north-west wing wall of Tregaron bridge had been rebuilt by Tregaron Rural Council, who were now desirous of erecting the urinal immediately behind the wall, but in a manner which would not interfere with the bridge, entry to be made direct from the road over the open space between the end of the wall and London House, and over which cattle were regularly taken to the river to Water. The erection of the urii al on that land need not interfere with the passage of the cattle. That piece of land had' always been claimed by the County Council as a roadside wasto, and in 1902 the occupier of London House was allowed to erect a. shed '"during the pleasure of the Council on pay- meut of an annual renta.3 of Is. The sub- committee appointed were called together on August 25th, but Alderman D. L. Jones was the only member who attended. The Clerk lmd received a further communica»- tion from the Rural Council. The Clerk said he had also received a further communication from Mr. T. A. Jones, London House, objecting to the erection of the urinal near his house. r Mr. D. J. Williams said it was not fair for Tregafoh to have that -question hang- ing on so long. The inhabitants were anxious to carry out improvements and instead of criticising Tregaron, adversely, the least that the members of the sub- committee could have done was to visit the phi-ee. There was a. dispute as to the County Council's claim to the land. Mr. Peter Jones—So there may be a lawsuit ? Mr. Williams added that the Rural Connr-il hnd spent Lao in providing a weighbridge and other improvements on the market field for the benefit of the public generally, and the urinal waa also intended as a public benefit, and not for the benefit of the town. Th Chairman said those who attended Jiegaron fairs and markets knew it was most desirable to have a public urinal. i Mr. Peter Jones said, as one of the defaulting members of the sub-commiitee, circumstances had changed oonsiderablv since the ma-tter was referred to the sub- committee. A porti,)n of the wall had iH>en removed without the consent of the (ounty Council, but that had been re- ^,anl]„ application was now modified, lhe present application was to erect the urinal on an open space which was practically vested in the Countv louncil. There was no desire to thwart the people of Iregaron in carrying out any improvements they desired, but the im- p tore merits should be effected in a manner Wjiich:would not cause a nuisance If a flushing system was provided for the iW™h woll3cI, satisfy the County Medical Officer, he had no objection. Ho would be guided by the County Medical Officer who would stipulate what should be done to comply with sanitary require- ments. As to the rights in dispute, the fact that the roadside waste had bpen let °u a P'eviou.s occasion was an implication that it was vested in the Countv Council. Mr. C. M. Williams said the members of the slil)-coniniittee did not want to shirk their duty, but it was an ITICOIIVOU- lent day to attend. He believed the County Medical Officer had visited the place and given his report. It was agreed, on Mr. Loxdale's pro- position, seconded by Mr Thomas Morgan, to approve the plan submitted and sanc- tion the erection of the urinal, subject to the hushing rystem being satisfactory to the County Medical Officer Glanfread Road. The sub-committee appointed to inspect I Glanfread road met on September 23rd, the members present being Messrs. J. T. Morgan and Peter Jones. A telegram was received from Sir Edward Pryse regretting his inability to attend, as he was busy re cruiting. 'HIP sub-committee found "con- siderable portions of the road very narrow, not over fourteen feet in width between the banks. The surface of the road. how ever, appeared ire] I metalled and in better condition than most district roafls. The narrowest portions were those opposite the first a.nd last of the adjoining fields be- longing to Glanfread Farm. Several corners required easing, notably the last y right-hand corner before turning to the main road near Maesnewydd, and on all the posts wire fence should bo substituted in place of the present hedges. The sub. committee recoinmended that the road should be widened and the widened parts metalled previous to the County Council being asked to adopt it as a. main road. In August, 1904, it was resolved that the road should be widened in the narrowest places to not less than seventeen; feet from bank to hank, with not less than fifteen feet of metalled surface. In view of the heavy motor traffic to which roads were now subjected, the Surveyor recommended that this width be exceeded wherever pos- sible. especially if the assistance vr the Road Board can bo obtained. Mr. Peter Jones said that owing to the traffic the condition of the road would justify an application by Aberystwyth Rural Council to the Road Board for a grant. Considering its limited area., he did not know of a road with heavier traffic. He proposed the adoption of the report. The proposition was seconded by Mr. Thomas Morgan, and agreed to. Mr. C. M. Williams and Mr Wilkinson advocated increasing the width of the road, and it was decided to ask for a width of not less than twenty feet. Mr. Robert Ellis thought it would be well to have a. footpath in addition, and the suggestion was referred to the Rural Council for consideration. An Aberystwyth Improvement. It was agreed to appro Ie the proposal of Aberystwyth Town Council to effect an improvement by the removal of Penglaise Lower Lodge. at the oorner of North-road and at the junction of Penglaise and Llan. abdarn roads. It was stated that the Town Council intend applying to the Road Board for a grant toward the estimated cost. Speed Limit. It was agreed that section nine of the MotfM- Car Act, limiting the speed of motor cars to ten miles an hour, should be put in one ration in Aberystwyth, Tregaron, Tve'rddol, Talvbont, Bow Street, Penparke, Llnnlmdara, Borth, and Pontrhydfendi- gaid. The Olel"1 said it would be necessary to apply to the Ijoeal Government Board to mnke a regulation, which would probably take months and months before coming into operation. Mr J. H. Davies said the Chief Constable was nearly knocked down by a motor cycle in Aberystwyth recently. Permission was given to the Town Coun- cil to place a warning notice on Trefechan Bridge calling attention to cross roads at the bottom of Bridge-street. Borth. The Surveyor reported that some parts (of the !ow breast work erected during the summer were already covered with sand, and the beach raised twelve inches. Other portions, however, were not yet covered. Immediate attention should be given to two of the long groynes erected in 1909. which require planking down to beach level as the sea carried the shingle away under the bottom planks. He understood from a communication received from Mi- Cecil Wright, Birmingham, that the adjoining owners were prepared to contribute half the amount of the cost, which was estimated at about R12. A communication was also received on the same subject from Mr. R. E. Jones, the high sheriff. I It was agreed to sanction the net-essary work. Dangeious Corners. A letter was read from Mr. Bernard Baker, Ynyslas, regarding a dangerous corner hetween.Borth and the river Dovey.. It was stated that the owner wis willing to give the necessary land for widening. Several memhers agreed that it was a dangerous corner. As it was a. junction of the main and district roads, a committee was appointed to visit the place jointly with members of the Rural Council. Communications were also read with re- gard to dangerous corners on the main roads between Tregaron and Trecefel bridge, Pont Llanio arid Llanio School- room. and between Olmarch culvert and Olmarch-isaf. Mr. C. M. Williams asked if the Sur- veyor could not prepare a scheme to apply to the Road Board for grants to widen the roads ? He thought a comprehensive scheme should be prepared in order that, the county should have a share of the grants. A committee was appointed to consider the question of dangerous places. Mr. J. P. Thomas. Pantmawr, wroto uiging titp necessity of fencing the portion of the Devil's tBridge road ,between the eighth and ninth milestones; "but as simi- lar requests had been refused the letter was not considered. New House. Mr. R. Jones, Bryn Sion, wrote that he intended erecting a new house at Capel Sion, and asked for permission to enclose a piece of waste land which would not be an obstruction, but would improve the road. Mr. Robert Ellis—We are alienating county property ani should have some recognition. A committee was appoin+od to visit and report on the value of the fond. Penvbont Bridge. The Clerk reported having been in cor- respondence with the Local Government Board with reference to Penybont bridge. The Board refused to consider the appli- cation for a lotn unless the plans were supervised by a competent engineer. Mr Robert Ellis—Professional etiquette. The Clerk added that the proposal was blocked all along. Either the Board's re- quirement- must be complied with or the application would hayo to be withdrawn, unfess the cost was to be borne out of revenue, or the work done in masonry. The erection of the new bridge was in- cluded in the scheme submitted to the Road Board, who were prepared to give a loan; but the sanction of the Local Gov- ernment Board was necessary to obtain the loan. On the proposition of Mr. Robert Ellis, it was agreed to comply with the Board's requirement and employ an engineer. The War. The Clerk read communications intimat- ing that the Government would purchase straw and hav from farmers at market prices. Forms and further information could be obtained at post offices or from the Board of Agriculture. Instead of profiting middlemen, -the Government were willing to treat directly with farmers. The Chairman said that was pretty wen known to farmers who had received "cirou lars. Mr Loxdale thought the Government should have sent representatives to treat with farmers in the same way f.s middle- men did. Mr. C. M. Williams said some people did not with the iinformatiion to be made known to farmers. He proposed the inser- tion of mi advertisement in the news- papers. The proposition was agreed to. Mr. Wilkinson said there was a request from the War Office for information as to stabling accommodation. Thousands of horses were coming f-om Canada, with a depot at Ormskirk. It was necessary to provide stables where the horses could be fc-d and hardened. An allowance of 15s. a week would be made. He asked those who could provide accommodation to com- municate with him. Figure Four Bridge. Replying to Mr. LoxdaV?, the Clerk said the question of rebuilding the bridge at Figure Four had heen considered by the County Council and postponed. Mr. Loxdale gave notice to consider at the next meeting the advisability of im- j proving the structure and removing the dangerous corner. f Cartage of Stone. TJ10 Surveyor's estimate of £ 1,125 for roads and Llo- for bridges for the ensuing quarter was approved, with an sedition of £ 5q for granite chippings. In his report! the Surveyor stated that the cost of pro-1 viding granite chippings for binding throughout the whole of the division would run to about £ 350 a year. Whilst fully aware of the superiority of chippings as binding, lie could not see his way to use it oxtensivoVy unless the County Council allowed the extra expenditure Replying to Mr. C. M. Williams, the Surveyor said it was almost impossible to get tenders for the cartage of stones. It was agreed, however, on the proposi- tion of Mr. Williams, seconded by Mr. W ilkinson, to advertise for tenders.

GRICGIETH- Temporary—Mr. Idwal Ednyfed Wil- liams, brother of the Surveyor, has been appointed temporary substitute for Mr. Gwilym Williams, surveyor to the Urban Council, who has joined the colours. Mr. Idwal Williams is at the Borough Sur- veyor 's office at Pwllheli. BÐIgian Befugoes.-A party of thirteen Belgian refugees arrived in Criccieth from London on Saturday evening and will be entertained at Llys Owen, a former resi- dence of Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd George who have kindly placed the house at the dis- posal of the Criccieth Relief Committee. This was the first party of Belgian refugees to arrive on the Cambrian coast and great interest was taken in the event. Crowds assembled at Carnarvon and the inter- mediate stations to Criccieth and gave the Belgians a cordial welcome. Among those receiving them at Criccieth were Miss Olwen Lloyd George and Mr. O. T. Williams, J.P., chairman of Criccieth Council. Vita: Statistics The death-rate of Criccieth for 1913 was 13.4 and the birth- rate 14.6.
