ABERYSTWITH. IMPROVEMENT COMMISSIONERS. —A monthly meeting of this body was held on Tuesday, the Mayor presiding. Cheques were signed, amounting to e42 9s. The Clerk read a letter from Mr. Tom Taylor, of the local Govern- ment Board (in answer to a petition from the Commis- sioners, for permission to complete the paving and drain- ing of the town), acknowledging the receipt of the memo- rial, and promising that the application should be duly considered by the department. The letter also requested that a copy of the Improvement Bill (promoted by the Commissioners) now before Parliament, should be sent to the Board. This was ordered to be done. An additional watering-cart was ordered to be procured for the use of the town. Mr. J. B. Balcombe then rose, and said that at a very influential meeting of the ratepayers, held last Oc- tober, the consolidation of the governing powers of the town-the Town Council and the Improvement Commis- sioners—was recommended, and the Councillors who were elected on the 1st of November were pledged to support the proposal. The matter had been ventilated in the Town Council, but it was found the Commissioners must take the initiative and he therefore begged to move that a special meeting should be called for the purpose of transferring all powers vested in them to the Corporation. The Clerk asked Mr. Balcombe if lie would not wait until the Improvement Bill was passed. Mr. Balcombe said that personally he was not inclined to wait. The Clerk Then you will destroy the Bill. The Mayor Yes, I am afraid so, indeed. Mr. J. P. Jones Well, I have great pleasure in seconding Mr Balcombe's motion. The Clerk If youjlo away with the Commissioners at once you will destroy the Bill Mr. Balcombe Then I will alter my motion somewhat, and propose that as soon as the Improvement Bill is passed or lost, a meeting shall be called for the purpose I have already named. The motion as amended was again seconded by Mr. J. P. Jones, and agreed to. There was no other business of public importance.
