The LlanllyM Water Works. FAILURE TO ARRIVE AT A SETTLEMENT. At the monthly meeting of the Gwyrfai District. Council, held at Carnarvon on Sat- urday, Mr T. Jones (chairman) presiding, Mr T. W. Williams, on behalf of the Llan- llvfni Local Committee, said that every effort had been made to arrive at an amic- able settlement with Mr John Roberts, of Bryngro Mill, a riparian owner, who had recently obtained an injunction restraining the Council from taking water from Dulyn Lake to supply the villages in the parish. A proposal was sent to Mr Roberts' solicitor to settle upon the following terms —(1) A nominal sum in recognition of water rights (2) undertaking not to diminish the supply to the mill; (3) payment of Mr Roberts' costs. In reply to an invitation, Mr Wil- liams, Mr Morris Owen, solicitor, and the clerk (Mr J. H. Thomas) had an interview with Mr Carter and Mr Walter Jones, and it resulted in the receipt of the following pro- posals for settlement: —(1) The Council to send out of the lake a minimum daily quan- tity of 594,700 gallons of water; (2) to con- struct and maintam a proper gauge near the lake (3) to pay a penalty of 10s a day if the minimum quantity as above is not sent down; (4) to pay t425 in settlement for all claims for compensation and costs. Mr Williams further said that the local com- mittee desired that the question of prosecut- ing the appeal for the reversal of the judg- ment granting the injunction to restrain the taking of water from the lake be left to the decision of the Council unfettered by any recommendation of the committee. Subse- quent to the interview an account had been rendered, and it was ascertained that the costs of the recent litigation amounted to tl78 10s 6d, of which Mr Roberts was re- sponsible for JE94 16s 6d on account of judg- ment having gone against him on a certain point raised by the Council.—Mr Closs pro- posed, and Mr R. B. Ellis seconded, that the Council decline to accept the proposals of settlement made on behalf of Mr Roberts, and that the appeal against the decision of Mr Justice Kekewich be prosecuted in the High Court.—The motion was carried nem con.
