f Llandilo Urban District Council. The monthly meeting of this body was held f on Tuesday evening, w'hen those present were: Mr L. Bishop (chairman) and Messrs C. Jenkins, Evan Jones, Wm. Jones, J. Y. Davies, D. Williams, D. Evans, D. Jones, John Davies, Hugh Hopkin E. A. Roberts, D. Stevens; the Clerik (Mr R. S. Lewis); the [Surveyor (Mr D. v enkins); Electric Light Contnactor (Mr D. P. Davies). THE LATE DR R. D. EVANS. The Chairman asked first of all that the members would agree to a vote of condolence wibh Mi's Evans and her children. The late Dr. was a man who had climbed to the high- est pinnacle in his profession, and he did not know of one around Dfcat could be compared to him. He took great interest in all his cases which he (himself could testify, and he (Mr Bishop) could only say he, could not wish any man to be more attentive. The least they could do was to pass a vote of deepest sympathy with the widow and to trust she would be sustained by Almighty power.—Mr D. Evans seconded.—Mr W. Jones added that he was very much indebted to the late Dr., and he had had a great loss, and he endorsed every word that had been said.—Mr Charles Jenkins thought the town and district had had a great loss. He had great faith in him. —Mr Evan Jones said it was a great shock to him. He felt very much for the widow and children.—The Council then rose in testifica- tion of the vote. A QUESTION OF PUBLIC IMPORTANCE. Mr D. Evans said before they proceeded with the agenda he had a question of public importance to bring forward, with Council's permission.—ill- Evan Jones, however, thought he had been treated unjustly by the position in which a motion of which he had given notice had been placed on the agenda, and he asked that it should take precedence over the ovners else it would be noT good.- The Chairman did not suppose there would be (any objection on the part of the Council. He would take it before No. 5, which would put Mr Jones's motion in a right position.— Jir D. Evans then resumed, and said that he drew their attention to what he had to say in the interests of the town. They should see if Lord Dynevor was within his rights in closing the steps that le" down to the river opposite the Moreb, and preventing a right of way to Llandyfeisant parish road. It affected the town very materially.—The Chairman did not think such a motion should be brought forward and have precedence over all the other business. Notice of it could be given.—Mr D. Evans said he was personally stopped the previous day from going to Llan- dyfeisant. He thought the thing should be brought forward when it was fresh in then- iminds. The town was on the downgrade owing to the attitude his lordship was taking with regard to vasitoi-s.-The Chairinali thought they had better not discuss it unless they did it thoroughly. If they were unani- mous it might be discussed, otherwise Mr Evans should give notice in a proper way.— — r D. Evans: I will leave it to you.—Chair- man I think I may say it is not of import- ance enough to come before you now. You know my position is rather awkward.—Mr C. Jenkins: .1 suggest it should be brought for- ward at the end of the meeting.—Chairman If YOll are unanimous. I shall be very pleased indeed gentlemen.—Agreed. A RIGHT OF DEFERRING. Vith regard to the two gullies, in the New Ro'ad, the Surveyor said they were in hand. —The Llandebie Li me works, Go. tendered for the supply of 200 tons of stones art 2s 6d per ton free on rail. The carriage to Llandilo would be Is 3d.—<Mr D. Evans and Mr Hugh Hopkin objected to the use of the limestone, t-he former pointing out that the Llandilo Board of Guardians would probably supply a tougher stone.—The Chairman reminded themi that at the last meeting they decided to try silica.—It was agreed to apply to the Guardians and the Silica Go. for tenders.— With regard to the loaai of the steam raller, the tender was for a ten ton or 12 ton roller for 21s 6d a day. It was a Dorsetshire Co. —The Chairman said they should know what distance they would roll in a day.—Mr D. Evans thought it was difficult to state.—Mr Hugh Hopkin wanted to know the length of tl-ie dpy.N,lr W. Jones said 7 o'clock to five. —It was agreed to adjourn the acceptance of a tender for the present for stones.—The Clerk ipointecl out tlfait the price offered for the steam roller was almost half that charged by the County Council.—Mr D. Evans did not want to have the stones placed on the road before September.—Mr C. Jenkins thought they sli-ouild have the stones ready. —The Clerk said if they got them from the Workhouse they would be stored there.—Mr Evan Jones expressed pity that they had not a cart and horse of their own.-lt was agreed to engage the steam roller ior the m nth of October.—The Chairman asked if there was any suggestion for the supply of water to the Ffairfach market.—Mr Evan Jones proposed they should not supply the contractor with water.- Mr D. Evahs thought they would act very meanly if they uid not grant the water. If they made use of the old reservior the new market would yield them a nice liittle revenue annually for water. If the Council refused, the new market people might get water from Penooed. As a matter of business, he proposed they should grant the water and leave any ill-feeling or senti- ment on one side. Neither proposition got a se,coii(lea-Tliere was also an application from Mr Burnett, the secretary of the Mar- ket for the use of water when the market was complete.—There was no proposition, and the matter fell tihnmgh.-n ehlitive to construct- 1 ing a sewer from Prospect Place to Bank Buildings, Mr Evans did not think it would be advisable to cut up the streets now when the visitors were there.—Mr D. Pritohard Davies, plumber and contractor, tendered to do all that was required according to plans and specifications for the sum of CS6 10s.— Mr Evan Jones: Where its the money to ctoone from.—Mr John Davies's figure was 13s 9d per yard. This distance being 210 yawls amounted to nearly doulble the former, or £ 144 odd.—The Surveyor thought the former was reasonable, and pointed out that at one pairt they would have to go to a great depth. -Mr D. StevensalSlked the Surveyor if he did not thiink it would be cheaper to have it done by day work P—He did not.—Mr E. A. Roberts said they had ignored one tender from Mr Pritohar Davies before, and they should not do it again.—Mr D. Evans pro- posed they accept his tender.—Mr W. Jones did not see why they should go so deep.—The Chairman said that question had been deci- -&d. --Nl r Evans thought they should go deep enough to drain the cellars.—Mr Roberts seconded.—The Chairman said that the diiafm would commence by Bank Buildings.—Mr D. Stevens supported the mot,iou.-As to curb- ing and channelling of George street, Mr Hugh Howelils tendered to do the wo,I;k at Is 3d per yard run.—Mr D. Stevens asked again which was the cheaiper way by day work or tender.—Air Evan Jones said it meant work- ing, not hanging on, say with a broom on the shoulder.—Mr D. Evans. objected. There were Toads. fa,r more, in need of it, as. the New Road and Crescent Road.—The Chairman said if the Surveyor advised Is 6d per yard, was enough, dicey sihou.^ defer to see if it could be done more reasonably.—Mr Evans proposed, and -Mr Stovens seconded, that the whole question of curling and channelling should be deferred.—Mr Stevens pointed oint that the question of concreting other parts of the town should also be deferred.—The Clerk said there was no tende"My C. Jan- kins proposed they should find out what was and ivhat was not Mr A. E. Harris s portion of the footpath near the Old Vicaaiage.—This was seconded by Mr D. Williams, and agreed I to.—Mr D. Evans said it seemed to him that a good deal w-ou'ld depend on what might be found out.—Mr E. A. Roberts pointed out the need of repair in certain pavements in the town. He requested that the Surveyor should report what portions of the footpaths wanted repairing. There -were -iiecec-saa-y repairs, and one might get a wetting or tossing at any moment. It was in the Surveyor's juris- diction to do it without being asiked to report. —Mr Stevens seconded.—For painting the electric light station and other town pro- perty, Mr R. Williaans and Soin tendered to do the Wolik for £ 5.—Mr D. Evans thought it was exorbitant, and it would not do to paint the settles now. What they wanted was more stttles. He moved the matter sih on Id be defoiired.Mi- Stevens. seconded. —Mr Roberts protested.—-Mr D. Stevens said it was a wrong time of the year to ask for tenders. It should have been done in March.—Mr Evan Jones objected to discon- necting the old reservoir water from the town. It was wanted for washing purposes. If anything happened to the Llandyfan supply, what would they do, especially in case of fire. They had under the *,old supply better power than !at present, seeing wlint water was wanted with all the new houses
