Cardiganshire County Council LAMPETER-ABERAYRON LIGHT RAIL- WAY PROJECT. PROPOSED NEW G.W.R. MOTOR-CAR SERVICES. A qu/arterly meeting of the Cardiganshire County Councl was held at Aberayron on Tuesday, under the presidency of Mr Lima Jones Aberiayron. TTie Clerk (Mr H. C. Fryer) reported that he had received a letter from the Local Government Board in reply to the application to adopt the Isolation Hospital Act for the purpose of enabling the Council to contri- bute towards the Alltymynydd Sanatorium. The Board took exception to certain noints of procedure, and the matter wis adjourned. Mr Evan Richards, Penuwchfawr, moved tha.t the county council contribute t400 one- haff of the estimated amount, towards the erection of a new iron bridge over the River Rlieidol at Rhiwarthen, near Capel Bangor Station. Dr Jenkyn Lewis, Uanon, asked for Ja lretwrn of the money spent on bridges in the northern and southern districts, and the Clerk said that as near as he bad been able to ascertain they had spent R7,218 in the Northern, and about £1,700 in the Southern. Dr Lewis: I beg to congratulate the nofthern district.—Mr O. B. Evans, Cardigan, moved as an amendment that one-thiird of the ocst be contributed, but the amendment was de- feated by a iliarge-majorit-v. Referring to the Lampèter to Abenayron light railway, Mr J. C. Harford, Falcondale, said he would be very pleased if they would allow the matter merely to go on. The order Was before the Board of Trade, and the time limit for objections. expired on August 3rd. Not a single objection had been received, and the order only iremained to receive the signa- tures of the chairman and members of the council before it came into force. With re- gard to the liability of the county and other councils which had promised contributions, in (order that they should run no risks, he bad consulted his own solicitors in Bristol, and directed them to draw up a specimen con- tmctand submit it to an eminent counsel for his opinion as to whether it fully protected the councils. The contractor was willing to sign the Great Western Railway printed con- tract, and it relieved them of a great daffi- cultv. because, no doubt, the line would eventuailiy t>e worked by the Great Trewtern Railway Company (hear, bear). Mr Vaughan Davies, M.P., said he saw Mr Inglis with reference to starting a motor ser vice from Aberayron to Lampeter, and two representatives/ from the motor-car depart- ment were in Aberayron that day. They had been over the road, but there were two or three places not safe for running motor- caa-s.-A committee was appointed to meet the Great Western Railway representatives and do what was necessary, with a spending limit of L50, to put the road in good running order. Similar power was given in reference to the Newauav and TAainrlvxnn:! mnrl The Clerk said that he had written to the Great Western Railway Company asking them if they were prepared to take over the undertaking of the Manchester and Milford Company to work the line if constructed, and the company had replied that they had not been advised by the Manchester and Milford Company of any such undrtaklng.
