DEATH OF MR W. G. YOUNG.-On Sunday last, a prominent figure in the commercial circles of North Wales passed away at the Three Crowns Inn, Bangor street, Carnarvon, viz.,Mr William G. Young, at the age of 63. The deceased, who had a fine presence, a genial countenance, and a kindly disposition, spent his youthful days at Bangor, where in early manhood he started as a commercial traveller for a local brewer. He afterwards for many years pursued the same avocation in the employ of Messrs Jones and Price, wine and spirit merchants, Carnarvon, subsequently with Messrs Younger and Co. and other firms, in which capacity the deceased became well-known throughout a great portion of Wales. He was a general favourite among his confreres, as he was always quiet and gentlemanly. Until lately he resided at Portdinorwic, but recently took the Three Crowm. He appeared to be in failing health for some time, and after a short ill- ness died on Sunday. He leaves a widow and an only daughter, with whom much sympathy is felt. His funeral took place at Llanbeblig Church- yard on Wednesday, the Rev J. Wynne Jones, M.A., the vicar, officiating. There were also present, Dr J. Williams, J.P.; Miss Young (daughter); Miss Davies, Mr J. R. Young (brother); Messrs Issard Davies, W. Hamer, T. Armstrong, E. Noble, Lieut. T. Harwood, J. Kinsley, Elias Williams, Bangor street; Ed- ward Ellis, Manchester Arms; H. R. Griffith, John Griffith, Portdinorwic. Mr Edward Parry, Helen View, had the whole funeral arrangements, which he carried out with the greatest satisfaction. Wreaths were sent by the fallowing:— Miss Young, Edith, Mr Edward Parry, Mr E. Ellis, Mrs J ones, Ishelen; Mr and Mrs Griffiths, Eagles Hotel; Mr John Griffith, Portdinorwic; Mrs Harwood, Penrhyn Villa; Mr and Mrs Noble, Miss E. Parry, Miss Hughes, Eastgate street, &c. GWYKFAI DISTRICT COUNCIL.—A meeting of this Council was held on Saturday, under the pre- sidency of Mr J. O. Hughes (chairman).—Mr Parry, the sanitary inspector, reported that the number of, infectious diseases for the past month was 11, a decrease of eight compared with the previous month. Complaints had been-received flom a number of inhabitants at Llanberis that water entered their premises in consequence of the | flooding of the streets on certain occasions. The inspector had prepared a scheme at an estimate cost of from A;8 to £12, by the adoption of which the flooding could be avoided.—Instructions were E'ven to the ^inspector to carry ont the seheme.— r P. Fraser, the medical officer of health, pre- sented a lengthy report dealing with the pollution of QueUyn Lake, from the village of Rhyd-ddu, and strongly urging that the scheme of the Coun- cil to prevent such pollution should be carried out without delay, 'tie most dangerous sources of pollution, after a great deal of correspondence and trouble on his par t, had at last been ramovad. — On the motion of Mr H. Menander Jones, seconded by Mr Cioss, the report was adopted, instructions being given to the clerk (Mr J. H. Thomas) to communicate with the persons mentioned in the report asking them to carry out the suggestions contained therein.—Dr Fraser further reported that there were in the district of the Council a large number of old houses, many of them erected before the Public Health Act eame into force, which frequently possessed features which were recognised as being dangerous to the health of the occupants. He maintained that a great deal of good could be done by educating the public as to the requirements of the Public Health Act. Ad- vertisements should be inserted in the press defin- ing how houses could be made fit for habitation.- Mr J. R. Jones said that the erection of insanitary dwellings could be prevented by refusing to pass plans until theCouncil were satisfied as to their sani- tary requirements.—MrR.B.Ellis remarked that he was glad that Dr Fraser had brought this matter forward. It was disgraceful that some houses in the country districts were allowed to remain as they were, their sanitary requirements being ex- ceedingly defective. Several of these houses, which were on large estates, ought to be pulled down, and he considered it was cruel that human beings should be permitted to occupy them.— Mr H. M. Jones observed that the subject was one of the greatest importance, and he suggested that Dr Eraser's report be printed and circulated in order that it might be properly discussed at a future meeting of the Council. He knew of houses which were not fit for animals, let alone human beings. -After further remarks the suggestion of Mr H. M. Jones was adopted. —A letter was read from Mr Roberts, surveyor, Llan- rug, stating that Mr J. E. Greaves (the lord lieutenant) had made certain improvements to the parish road at ^Caeathraw, and contemplated making further improvements that would enable the Council to keep the road in proper repair.-On the motion of Mr T. R. Jones it was decided to thank Mr J. E. Greaves for the improvements he had made.—A circular was read asking the Coun- cil to pass a resolution appealing to Parliament to pass an act to empower the Government, or the County Council, or any other local authority, to provide the necessary capital for the con- struction of light railways. Mr T. R. Jones con- tended that the Government alone should take the matter in hand. He considered that it was very reasonable that large landowners should launch out a little money to improve their own property by the construction of light railways.-The mat- ter was deferred.-The clerk pointed out that the various districts were in arrears of their calls to the extent of JE 1,100. Llanberis being responsible for £ 405.—Mr T. Williams observed that if other places had been as indifferent as Llanberis, the Council would have been in the bankruptcy court. -It was decided to ask the various districts to pay a portion of the arrears forthwith.-Dr Fraser reported that there were 51 births during the past month and 53 deaths, the death rate being 14 "8 per 1000 of the inhabitants.
