Crown Rights in Foreshores. At the Carnarvon County Council, oil Thursday, the Board of Trade submitted three proposed grants of Crown rights in foreshores for the observations of the Council—namely, to the Bangor Cor- poration for the improvement of the Slhven Baths on the Menai Straits, to Mr T. G. Williams, Criccieth, for the pur- pose of reclaiming foreshore at the mouth of the Dwyfor by an embankment, and t t Mr M. J. Regan, sub-lessee of the Tany- graig Quarry, Uanaelhaiarn, for the pur- poses of a contemplated p'ier. It was re- solved that the Board of Trade be informed that the Council have no observations to make as to the applications, that the Board of Trade be thanked for the communications £ ,nd for the opportunity of expressing opin- ions thereon, and that the Dwyfor Fishery Board be Lotified of the application by Mr T. G. Williams, Oriocieth. Mr E. R. Da vies, Pwllheli, took strong exception to the Committee's recommenda- tion as to the proposed grants of foreshore. He was strongly of opinion that not an inch of Crown .Linds should be sold to any individual person or private company. Any transference of Crown rights in foreshores and other Crown lands should be to the local authority of the district where such property was situated. He bad no ob- jection to tho Bangor application, which was made by the- Town Council with the object of establishing public baths under the control of the Town Council. In the case of Criccieth and Llanaelhaiarn, how- ever, it was different, the application beinc I made by private individuals. He knew of instances where Crown property had been sold some time ago for £ 76, which could not now be bought for £ 2000. This ought not to be tolerated under any circumstances. He moved as an amendment to the Com-: niittee'f, report thrt the Council inform tho Board of Trade that the Council W[I.5 strongly opposed' to the sale of Crown Lands to irdividuals under any circumstances, but tha'o they do not oppose the application from Bangor.—After some discussion the amendment was unanimously adopted.
