LLANRWST BOARD OF GUARDIANS. T( END AY.—Mr. E. Jones Williams in the chair. DINNER OR SANDWICH. —Mr. J. Jones, Trebrys, in accordance with a notice at tlite previous board, moved that a dinner should be provided to the guardians at the house on the days of the meetings at a cost which vvonM: clear the expense. He had felt the necessity for some such provision on ■«evorafl occasions. At the time when the most important pait of the work of the board came to be considered the best half of the ?n em! hers left the meeting, aJHl lie did not see whv they should not do so. Either the board .should meet at a more convenient time, or some preparation of the kind lie referred to whouM be mlad'e.—Mr W. Evans, Yspytty, «eccm|de«d. He thought the proposal was a 110st reasonable one. The board, milder the new Act, had a great deal of work to do, and ib was important that they should remaii there to do it.—'Mr. J. Roberts thought that such a provision would lie, the. means of keep- ing the board together till the work was com- pleted. iXevenal guardians came tu the meet- ings, had thteir names entered, on the books as being present, and then left, leaving the work toO be dione by others. At the end of the year those people lr;wl a great deal of eredit in Hilieir various parishes far having attended so <miany meetings—(laugh'ter)—when, as a matter of fact, tfhey were meiie ciphers in the jn&tteT of administering the affaire of the union.—The Chairman corroborated what Mr. Rubella had ^said as to those who came there merely to have their namies on the book. They left by thei fiist train.—Mr. Isgood Jones .said that he had listened with. interest too wliat had been-said one way mid the other. He had been in that board for some years, arrfl had felt several times that lie would have liked to have had a bit of food. Since that time bread and cheese had been supplied to the membere. But that was rather dry fare. (Laughter.) It would be a pity to divide the house on a question of that kind, especially s'neo they "were there to discuss the businiens of the public. Whilst they were having a dinner there was no doubt the work would have. to stop. Would it not be better if the matron suppQi-ddi them with hot tea or cofiee and sandwiches The work would then not bti interfered' with.—Mr. E. Roberts seconded that proposal.—Nineteen voted for the pro- Tisi'oni of food at. the meetings and five mgainst, and it was decided that a dinner tihould be provided. THE MASTER'S REPORT showed that the mwnber of Inmates 'was* 35, as compared wibh the sarnie number at the corresponding period of last year; casuals relieved, 28, as wompared with 67 last year. THE UNEMPLOYED. —A letter was mad fiV ii; the guardians of Lambeth (London) en- closing a copy of a communication sent to the Local Government Board with reference t-ø the question, of the unemployed. The Lam- bsth guardians bad resolved to submit to the. •! Local Government Board an urgent entreaty T/h.tt blre-r hvlould take steps for obtaining, with the ktisb possible deflay. a census of the peii'sons out of employment, in Great Britain, ol i'^Lning from Parliament the necessary j poWei's, arAI making provision for th-e collec- tion of the most complete. Information com- patible with the speedy execution of the work. They further asked that on the completion of t'he census the subject should be considered by a carefuIOy-selected and representative commission, They felt that knowledge of the facts was at present imperfect, if not t'litotgether wanting, and that the problem was one of'such magnitude that the solution of it Mhauld be undertaken by the Imperial Government, and was not within the pr&vince ■or the resources of local administrative bodfos.—Therei was also rea»l a communica- tion from the Local Government Beard on the same subject.—The consideration, of the ques- tion wsiis adjourned. CRITICISM OF THE CARNARVON- SHIRE INTERMEDIATE SCHEME.— -Mr. David Da vies asked for information as to tho relation of that 1 ward as far as the fiuard-ians of the Carnarvonshire parishes were )'r))lcemed with respect to the Llanrwst county school. He was frequently questioned in his district respecting the matter, arid he desired to be placed in a position to supply An answer.—Mr. Isgocd Junes (cfhairnxan of the local governing body of the Llanrwst school) said that he was very glad that that matter had been brought forward. He under- stood that there had been some discussions about the matter at. the bo/ml. He felt very much^for the people of the Carnarvonshire parishes he feared tlirjt they had not had justice done to till em. The- intermediate eVIucatioTL scheme of Carnarvonshire was not as complete as that of Denbighshire. But he thoug'h'fc that the education committtv of Car- narvonshire ought to have been as careful of the interests of the whole county as that of Denbighshire had boen. He did not. dictate to them. They of Carnarvonshire had as good a share of that school as they in Den- bighshire had and there was no wish that ishould be otherwise. In the scheme of Carnarvonshire there was a sum of £ 222 rearly to be paid to that school. But it was provided that that money 'was to be given entirely in scholarships and bursaries. Seveibl d the members of the local governing body saw that that sum was too much to be given altogether in scholarships, when there was not a. penny contributed towards carrying on the school. The few* were only B4, but the tl.ilucation cost £ 12. Who was to make up the C8 difference? It could not be expected that the fund of Dtuhighsfliiiv should go to help it. There ought to be the hiii-e pro- portion of contribution towards that object timing from Carnarvonshire as from Den- bighshire. And some injustice had boen done to that end of the district. There was not a gifardian from the Carnarvonshire parishes of I ;r k 1 The union oil the local governing body. He would swy that thtw, as a board of guardians, ought to pass a resolution to send to the county governing bdly, requesting them to amend t'heir scheme, so tlia't a portion of the £ 200 gi'int should go towards supporting the ••ichool, otherwise th;e local governing body w'ou'ld say that they had not enough money to carry on the school. He was glad to say that last week a competitive examination for the sicholiarsh'ips had boen held, and as many as 38 children had sat at it. most of whom were from Carnarvonshire. How were those to be. educated if Camar\ ouslme was not to contribute towards the sciiool. There wa. n flaw in the scheme, and lie. felt that that board was the proper authority to appeal to tfue county governing bcily. He believed that if that were) done the county governing body would endeavour to get the chann eoui- niissioaiers to reconsider the .scheme- The v-lwa'irman said that -2200 had been granted by th«e Carnarvonshire County Council, which w'as nnoue than the Denbighshire County Council had granted towards scholarships. With that matter they could not interfere. They might make whatever suggestions t-bey liked, but thatt money was to be given solely for scholarships, and the governors could not use any portion of that money at present for any v'i'hev purpose.—-Mr. Thos. Williams Perhaps some one can tell the reason -why the County Council of Carnaiwonshire did not .appoint any one from this nui:ght>oiu"hood as represe11tatives to look a.fter the education of 'this sc'liool.—The -Chairman They have done. —-Mr. T. WiJiliams X es, out wny appoint •one fri in near Conway and the other from Renmachno, disregarding other parishes wli ch used i > hwe representatives 'i—The Chair- nuui You must write to the clerk of the Connie Council to ;isk about that. The matter was decided by vote in the council, and. tint was fair enough but perhaps it was ne on political linens.—Mr. Isgoed Jone.- Hadn't s,>iuemie l>:vtteu give a notico of -Il1.n? The clerk (é "he County Coan-il, wlio is 1118 clerk of the governing body, «vyn tkd unless they git a requisition from be diffei't-nt boaiCis to do something they will not do anything. The thing cannot be done 1 in a short time. But the sooner we move the better.—Tine Chairman You cannot do any- thing now. It is simply waRte of time to discuss the question. If you desire to give a notice to bring this matter up again, let !b<v don-e.—Mr. Thomas Williams Clearly =- I have been oveAooked. I give notice of motion.—The Chairman The County Coun- I eil has acted fairiy. There were two to be appointed to Tepresent this district, and they r have been elected.—(Mr. William Williams Very likely when the new council is alected ether parishes will be neglected.—Mr. T. Williams Yen you see that there, are two but are we satisfied with the two who have been elected ? They live at such a long distance.—The Chairman: You don't under- stand Ü.I\I question. There are two governors ¡ to be elected to represent this Idistrict.—Mr. Isgoekl' J'one'S They ought to have more.- I The Chairman Yes; but that is what we have now. Those two can be elected from any part by the County Council.—Mr. Isgoed .Tones There is no one appointed a repre- sentative by the boa.rd of guardians.—Mr T. Williams gave notice that at the next meet- ing he would move that the guardians should seek to have power to appoint representatives on the- governing bdd)y. FINANCES.—It was reported that there was outstanding the sum of £ 793 9s., which was due by the parishes of the union the overdraft 'aA fhe 'bank was £335 16s. 4d.
LLANDUDNO POLICE COURT. MONDAY.—Before H. Kneeshaw, Esq., (in the chair), C. H. Darbisbire, Esq., Hon. H. Lloyd Mostyn, Dr K. Bold Williams, J. Jones, Esq. (who sat for the first time as chairman of the Llandudno Urban District Council), Dr R. A. Prichard. KINu'S HEAD.—Mr R. S. Chamberlain made an application on behalf of Elinor Smallwood, for the transfer of the license of the King's Head Inn, Llandudno, to her from John Midgeley.—Mr Chamberlain said that Mrs Smallwood intended to come to live to Llandudno, and Mr Smallwood con- templated spending a large amount of his time at Llandudno for the purpose of extending his bottling trade.—Superin- tendent H. D. Williams said that he had no objection to the application, which was granted. EJECTMENT ORDER.—Mr R. S. Cham- berlain applied on behalf of Humphrey Williams for an order of ejectment against John Roberts, labourer, Upper Gate-street, Conway.—Mrs Roberts, who appeared in answer to the summons, said that the notice to quit was not right. They had taken the house in May, and they were to leave it in May.—The order was granted, which was to take effect in a month. OXFORD ARMS HOTEL.—Mr E. E. Bone applied for the transfer of the license of the Oxford Arms Hotel from the executors of the late Mrs Payne to Watkin Payne, a son, and one of the executors.—Superin- tendent H. D. Williams said that he had no objection to the application, but he had given notice that if the nuisance of touting was to continue he would object to the license at the annual meeting; and he in- tended to do that if the nuisance was not abated.—Mr Bone said that the nuisance bad not arisen until a new tenant came to the pre- mises on the opposite side of the street, where a similar business was carried on.—Superin- tendent H. D. Williams said that he had no complaint against the conduct of the house. -The Chairman said that the bench could not recognise touting; it would have to be put down. On the understanding that that would be done, the bench would be willing to transfer the license.—The application was accordingly granted. BYE LAWS CASE.-The LIandudno Urban District Council, represented by Mr R. S. Chamberlain, charged Evan Jones, Bodafon, with having committed an offence against the bye-laws in Queen's Buildings, I y Clonrcel-street.—Mr E. E. Bone defended.- Mr Chamberlain said that the bye-laws pro- vided that there should be a certain open space left at the back of every new building. The defendant was the owner of a piece of land at the corner of Clonmel-street, and in iobo plans were submitted to the local auth- ority showing the buildings to be put up on it. There was always some difficulty with a corner piece with regard to the open spaces which were to be exclusively used for each tenement. Mr Jones had submitted plans to cover these open spaces. The commissioners had refused to sanction the plans, and the defendant had built in defiance of them.- Evidence was given by E. Paley Stephen- son, C.E., the engineer of the district council.—Mr E. E. Bone, in defence, main- tained that the piece of land belonged to the stables. Where anyone built upon an open space which belonged exclusively to a dwelling house, then the bye-laws would have been violated. He submitted that that yard never did exclusively belong to a dwelling-house, but bad been exclusively re- served for the stables.—The bench were convinced there had been an infringement of the bye-laws, and they ordered that the buildings should be pulled down; that a fine of 10s should be imposed, and that a con- tinuing penalty of Is a day should be enforced from the date of the notice. CHIMNEY ON FIRE.-P.C. 69 charged Elizabeth Hall, Church Walks, with having allowed her chimney to be on fire.—Fined Is and costs. AFFILIATION.—Mary Owen versus R. T. Jones, Penyffrith.-Au order for 2s 6d a week was made. NO LICENSE. — H. Douglas, Inland Revenue officer, charged J. Innerdale, Deganw y-street, with keeping a dog with- out a license. Mr W. D. Henderson defended.—Mr Douglas said that he only applied for the payment of the value of the license and costs, which were ordered to be paid. DRUNKENNESS.—P.C. 69 charged E. J. Williams, Graiglwyd, with being drunk and disorderly. Fined 5s and costs.—The same officer charged Catherine Clasey, a hawker, with the same offence, and she was fined 5s and costs. I PROFANE LANGUAGE.—John Roberts, Bodafon Row, was charged by P.C. 66 with having used profane language in Mostyn- street.- The defendant pleaded guilty.- Superintendent H. D. Williams said that the offence was very commonly committed in Llandudno, especially among a certain class; and the police must persevere in putting down such offences.—A fine of 5s and costs was imposed. OBSTRUCTION.—P.C. Nelson charged Evan Hughes, contractor, Madoc-street, with causing an obstruction on the footpath by leaving thereon iron frames.—The defendant said that the frames did not belong to him, but they had been placed where they were by his men.-Fined 5s and costs. CHARGE OF LARCENY.-Hannah Wil- liams, Jubilee-street, was charge with having stolen a tin box, the property of Jane Jones, Bryntirion Cottage, Cwlach-street.—Super- intendent H. D. Williams said that the case was one in which one domestic servaLt had stolen a box from another. The defendant had been in service at the Marine Hotel. The complainant had been in the same place, where she had left the box.—The defendant had taken the box, and refused to give it up.—Jane Jones gave corroborative evidence, and said that the box when new was worth 8s.-p.C. John Hughes said that be had searched for the box, and had found it at No. 19, Jubilee-street, in the possession cf the defendant. He had charged the defendant with stealing it. She replied that it did not belong to anyone, but had been the property of some waiter who had been there. She had said that it was not her own.—Elizabeth Gibson, laundress, said that the box was not the property of Jane Jones. It had been left at the hotel as unclaimed luggage.-The case was dismissed, the bench ordering that tho box should be delivered over to the complainant.
Mrs Sudgwick, the principal of Xewnham College, Cambridge, will formally open Aber- dare Hall (the Welsh "X ewnham") in April nest. The hall, which owes so much, to Lady Aberdare. has already, before the oercllloníal opening, no fewer than 32 students. A large percentage of deaths is due to throat and IUD"- troubles. Bronchitis and consumption are great curses to Great Britain, and they will con- tinue so until the ppople become more careful and begin treatment eirly. This is especially true of consumption.

LLANDUDNO URBAN DIS- I TRICT COUNCIL. WEDNESDAY.—Councillor John Jones, J.P. (in the chair). There were also pre- sent Councillors R. Conwav, W. Bevaji, W. H. Jones, E. Thorpe, J. 0. Thomas, E. E. Bone, Joseph. Hughes, T. W. Griffith, T. T. Marks, Elias Jones, W. Williams, John Owen, Thomas Owen, R. Bellis, Robert Ro- berts, W. Evans, the: clerk (Mr A. W. Oon- olly), the engineer (Mr E. Paley Stephenson, C.E.). FINANCE COMMITTEE. Mr Chamberlain ajttendeA the committee and submitted a document showing the rate- able value of the various parts of Llajidudioo (Station, as agreed by Mr W. Marshall and Mr S. M. Howard, January 7th, 1895, amounting to £ 1,300.—It was resolved that tliet figures be accepted, and that Mr Chamberlain be instructed to base his case for submission *x> the Queen's Beoich Divi- sion of the High Court of Justice thereon.—• The oolleccor had collected the following sums during the past month Rates, £133 10s. 3d. water rilld gas rents, f 1,900 Os. 4d. general receipts, B255 10s. 2d.—The com- mittee had under consideration an offer of 25 annuities at JE18 10s*. each. It was re- solved that the council be r-ecomllnen:cled to offer the sum of JB18 «vch. Mi T. W. Griffith moved the adoption of the minutes and thev were adopted. WORKS COMMITTEE. The committee had under consideration the letober from the Local Government Board, en- closing the formal sanation of the board; to borrow the sum 01 £7,100 for the purpose of carrying out a portion of the sewerage scheme, and the surveyor was authorised to commence upon the, surface water portion of the scheme as soon as possible, so however that the work shall not be carried on betw-een May and wcd.ober, and to engage as soon as required a clerk of thE" works at a saila.rv not to exee-od £ 2 12s. 6d. per week.—A ieifcer was read from Mr A. Dickinson in reference to the pnoposed Llandudno and Deganwy Tramway, stating that it is intended to seek powers to r r carry the line from the terminus in Glod- tdiaeHi-streett, shown on the plain previously submitted, down G k«ld a eth-rftreet, along Mo'sityn-isltredt, Mwtyn-street Extension to Craigside, and ult-imately to Colwyn Bay. As tlie Llandudno and Deganwy lramway echeme is in a measure dependent upon the sajidbion of the council to the more extended scheme, Mr. Dickinson therefore appli-ed for that sanction. He stalled that the fullest oppor- tunity would be given to the council for approving of the details, and' that all 11« re- quired was assent to the principle of the Scheme, so that steps might be taken to pro- mote a provisional order. It was resolved that the council be recommended to approve of the principle of the scheme without bind- ing ifese.- to any part of tho proposed' route, The letter from the Cymru lYdd League, cn the subject of ptroviding work for the unem- ployed was ordered to be laid upon tlic, table. Mr Bevan moved the adoption of the min- utes.—Mr Joseph Hurdles seconded.—Mr W. Bevan said that the boatmen had been con- sulted as to enlarging the jetty, and it was their opinion that it would not be advisable to add 100 yards to the landward end.—Mr J. Owen called attention to the minute with re- spect to the engagement of a clerk of works. He gathered that the surface water, part of the drainage scheme, was only to be pro- ceeded with at present, a part involving, when it was complete, the sum of J31000. Eurther than that, the time to work during that spring was confined. He felt very strongly that the staff should be sufficient to carry out that work with the aid of Mr Thomas Brookes. He moved that that part of the paragraph should be erased. It was his opin- ion that as there was less building in the town there was less work in superintending new buildings, and as there were no projects re- quiring the supervision of plans, he thought the assistant suryevor could very well afford the time required for that work.—Mr R. Bellis seconded. He quite concurred in what bad been said.-Tho Engineer said that the scheme was one which would involve £15,000, and it was necessary to have a clerk of works so as to see that the work was done well; and for that purpose someone was required to be continually in charge. It was not a burden on the rates, for he had provided for the amount in the capital sum. The gentle- men who had spoken did not perhaps know as well as lw what amount of work ihere was to btf done in the office he and his assistant had as much as they could do. There was no reason why the relieving sewer should not be proceeded with during the summer, because it did not come on to any street, and was away from the town. That and the outfall had to be done --Air J. Owen gathered that the clerk of works was to be engaged permanently. It was a most extra- ordinary thing to engage a man to superin- tend that work till the end of May, and then keep him with nothing to do till they again started the other sections of the work.—The Chairman: There is no intention to engage this man permanently.—Mr E. E. Bone: It is a weekly engagement.—Mr T. W. Griffith said that the natural inference to be ,drawn from the report of the works committee was that the work was not to be proceeded with after the beginning of May. It would, there- fore, not be wise to engage a. man and pay him for superintending that work when they had a surveyor and an assistant surveyor and a. second assistant surveyor.—Mr W. Williams asked whether the work would prevent the flooding which occurred in several houses during the winter.—Seven voted for the am- endment, and nine against it; it was, there- fore, lost.—Mr R. Bellis referred to the elec- tric tramway. He thought it would be well if the council knew exactly what it was com- mitting itself to by passing the recommenda- tions of the committee. An electric tramway was not a tramway of ordinary construction, and what lie desired to have kept in mind was that they did not bind themselves in any shape or form till they had the full details of the scheme. By confirming the minutes, it might mean a very troublesome process in order to get the council's electric cables across the line of tramway. There were other ques- tions in connection with these tramways which lie thought the board ought to con- sider very carefully. His opinion was that tramway companies making use of the streets of a town ought to pay mileage.—The Chair- man said that as far as he understood the council committed themselves to nothing but the principle, that principle being accom- panied by such details as they could approve -Mr R. Bellis desired to move as an amend- ment that the council would consider the scheme when it had the whole of the details before it.—Mr E. E. Bone That is an inter- pretation of what the committee mean.—Mr R. Bellis Yes but this goes into a. great deal of details. They may say to the Board of Trade "We submitted plans to them, and they have approved of the general principle." —Mr Marks s;iid that in his opinion the works committee had made a recommends tion from which it would be very difficult for that council to retreat, if it were confirmed. He would move an amendment that the para- graph should be expunged from the minutes, and that the whole question should be re- ferred. not to the works committee, but to the whole council. It was too important a matter to be passed in an off-hand way.- The Chairman said that there was a, very numerously-signed petition sent in by Mr DickiJlRolJ ill favour of tho scheme from the ratepayers and residents of Mostyn-street.— Mr W. Bevan said that it was very important that they should see exactly where they were goilig.-Air J. Owen said that Mr Marks hardly went, far enough for him. The ques- tion of having electric trams throughout the whole district was introduced. He had readily enough supported the proposal to have an electric tram from Gloddaeth-street to Deganwv, but the present "project, was & very much more extensive one. It mo;)<nt the laying down of a net of tramways covering the whole district up to Mochdre Valley. He thought the ratepayers should be consulted. It was a question of vital importance to the town, and might mean a benefit or total ruination.—The Chairman I take it that it is within the province of anyone aggrieved outside this council to-call a public meeting. —Mr E. E. Bone said that the works com- _.L could not expect any syndicate to go to a. large expense in preparing plans and incur- ring other preliminary expenses without their saying whether or not they approved of the principle. If the council was against the tramway under any conditions, let them say so.—Mr T. T. Marks said that they were there to represent the ratepayers and the owners of property, and not any outside speculative company.—Mr R. Roberts asked if it was not a fact that the outside part of that scheme had been recommended by the late board of commissioners.—The Chairman The principle of it.—Mr R. Roberts Would it not be possible that this innovation as regards the scheme could be placed separately before the council, and that the othc-r part which has been sanctioned by the late board should be left alone ?—Mr R. Belli1- In con- sidering the scheme of course the council would have to have regard to it as a whole. —The Chairman You will find that if we do not approve of the whole, the portion won't be made at present.—Mr R. Roberts Have we not understood that the gentlemen who are promoting this scheme would, pro- ceed with the outside portion even if this ether part was not confirmed by the present councill-The Chairman I don't think they will. There is a petition here also from the owners of carriages agiinst the scheme.— The amendment was then carried, and the minutes were confirmed WATER AND GAS COMMITTEE. The engineer reported that he hf.M In- spected a copy of the Parliamentary plan de- posited in the parish office at Llangws?i>enin, showing the land at Pensarn, which the L. & JS. v\. Railway Company propose to take powers to ajcqulre, and he produced a tracing from which it appeared that the. of ¡ the railway company is to widlen thE1 bridge and so admit of additional lines of railway. It did not appear fiom that plan that there was any intention' on the part of the rail-way7 company to alter the situation of the junction sitetion.—It was resolved that with reference to the resolution pajised by the Improvement Commissioners, on the 18th of December last, disheriting from the railway company's pro- posal as conlhained in their juarllamentary nKjdje-e, thife committee having now seen a tracing of the parliamentary plan, and ascertained! that the company'» prapo«ri! inter- feres with the leading water ma-in belonging to the Fafuan District Council of Llandudno, hereby instint'ts their clerk to inform the company that the council are prepared to arrange terms for protec-iting their property audi interest so as to save expense to the com- pany and the council. Mr Elias Jones moved the adoption of the minutes, Mr T. T. Marks seconded, and they were passed. SANITARY COMMITTEE. In accordance with the instructions of this committee me medical officer of health re- ported that he had inspected, in company with tlie sanateiry inspector, the public bak-e- hOUSEH within the district. The opinion whic'n he format of the Llandudno bake- houses was tHmtt, except in one or two particu- lars, such as reg-ardls ventilation, they are satisfactory, and do not call for anything more. stringent than catretful inspection, especially during the busy Reason, add the enforcements of the ptovisi'ons' of the special Acts dealing with bakehouses.—It was resolvtd that the sariHtHTy inspector take the necessary steps to get the improvemeaits suggestea in ill e re- port carried out without delay. Mr William Williams, in moving the adop- tion of the minutes, called attention to the satisfactory state of the bakehouses of the town, according to the report of the inspector. When the committee had proposed that that examination should take place, they had been called a great number of names (laughter).— Mr R. Roberts seconded, and the minutes were adopted. BYE-LAWS COMMITTEE. It wats reSolved that the portion of the large yard used as a pony stand, < £ x\, be properly cleaned out, a'nd that the council be recommended to declare such place to be the market place tompcrarlly until further and betiter provision can be made, and to affix a notice to that effect.—The following minutes of the market sub-oommii.tee, with respect to the provision of a market hail, were approved of.-It was resolved that the clerk be drected to write to the Market Hall Company and ask if the company would be prepared to sell or let the Market Hall to the Council, and if so, upon what terms.—Tlie solicitor to the llx)ard forwarded a letoer which he had re- ceived from the S'olie'itor to the London and iNorth Western Railway Company, having reference to the rumour as to the removal of the Llindu/lno Junction Station, and statisig that whatever alterations (if any) are made in the actual rates if the position cf the station 'be varied, care will be taken not- to injuriously dfEct the traffic to and from stations to the west of Llandudno. Mr John Owen moved the confirmation of the minutes, mid Mr E. Thorpe Reconded.- A petition was read fioin the owners of bath- ing machines protesting against permission being given to ladies and gentlemen to bathe together on the bea^h.—Mr W. Bevan said that his impression was that the resolution which had been passed by the commissioners, giving the permission, was not worth the paper it was written upon, unless they acted: upon it. According to their bye-laws, there was a certain place for the gentlemen and another place for the ladies for bathing, and he thought that unless they had the sanction of the Local Government Beard they could not alter those bye-laws.—Mr T. W. Giiffith said that he was prepared to give a notice of motion to rescind the minute granting the permission. He did not believe in it at the time, and had expressed himself so.—Mr John Owen As long as that resolution has been passed, would it not be better to appoint tIt", party who may be last in turn on tlie gentlemen's ground to take these mixed bathers ? They are not so numerous; and I think that ar- rangement would meet the objection of the proprietors, at the same time meeting the demand for such accommodation.—Mr T. T. Marks The passing of that resolution created a new bye-law and you had no right to do that.—Mr R. Bellis: I propose that that ground shall be set apart, for the purpose. I would point out that the resolution does not in my opinion create a new bye-law, be- cause it is not compete as it iN. You will notice that a committee was appointed to confer with the bathing machine proprietors on the subject. That conference has never taken place. Therefore the resolution passed is practically incomplete, and it will not be complete until that conference takes place. Practically it is half a resolution therefore, it cannot be a complete bve-law.—Mr Thomas Owen seconded. He thought the proposition was a very sensible one.—The Chairman Undoubtedly there is a demand for such a thing, and if there is no demand, there will be no encouragement for it.—Mr R. Bellis suggested that the matter should be referred to the bye-laws committee.—Mr William Wil- Hams asked whether the men should not be consulted again. The men had their trade in view.—Mr R. Bellis said that he wanted to see the thing carried out as quickly as pos- table He did not want the late board of commissioners to appear stultified. It had gone forth through all .,he newspapers that the late board of commissioners intended to provide that ground.—Mr T. W. Griffith If it is not the intention of Mr Beliis's am- endment to appoint a number of bathing machines to be at the spot referred to, I can- not see that it will entail any hardship upon the bathing van proprietors. But what I had in view was this, that it was the inten- tion of this board to compel these men to take their turn at the place with the vans, which would entail a. considerable loss upon them. I take it that we are here to repre- sent the interests of these men.—Mr W. Hcvan There is a great deal of danger. If you do not put bathing machines there, what will be the outcome of it? They will bathe I there without the' machines. What is the good of putting up a board '.• The board In- dicates a. place where ladies and gentlemen can bathe and if no bathing machines are provided, they will naturally think that they do not require them and it will become a public nuisance.—Mr R. Bellis: I cannot help saying that I xegard those words as a slander upon the women of this country v\ T floirt think that any husband decencies.—Mr Bevan They do already.- Mr Bellis They don't.—Mr Bevan I say that there are gentlemen there.—Mr R. Bellis There are no ladies there. You are in the same position with regard to the other bathing grounds. You have boards up there, and frequently no machines. Don't you find the same trouble there? The machines are not there until June. Are you troubled with these gentlemen who come down, and, siniplv ¡ because there is no machine, go on bathing? I ask you to have some confidence in the good taste of ladies and gentlemen who come here to visit.—Mr W. H. Jones could not see that there was the slightest danger.—Mr Marks Cannot we move one step at a time ? As long as the resolution is on the books, it must be dealt with somehow. If Councillor Bellis will defer his proposition till that is disposed of, it will facilitate matters. I move that it should be referred back to the bye-laws com- mittee to be reconsidered together with the proposal of Mr Bellis.—That course was agreed to, and the minutes were then con- firmed. WORKMEN'S DWELLINGS. A spec.al committee considered the number of houses whidh they should recommend the council to maKe provision for, pursuant to I Part 3 of the Housing of the Working Classes Act, 1890, and came to the conclus on that it would not be advisable to erect a greater numfber than 18 at. present, but i, was decided to negotiate for the purchase or lease of land sufficient, to erodt the said number thereon, and a further number if found necessary here- after, the houses not necessarily to be bu'lt all in one placet. Mr Bevan proposed the adoption of the minutes, Mr W Evans seconded, and they were passed. I THE UNEMPLOYED. At a special meeting of the council in com- mittee the surveyor wis empoweTed to em- ploy up to 40 men at 2s. 6d. per day, and to set 24, more or less, of the men to clear &way some of the ashes from the ashes tip adjoining the gasworks, and to convey it to the clay pits, ami there tip it, and to do oilier work. The Chairman proposed the adoption of the minutes.—Mr J. O. Thomas seconded.— The Surveyor said that on the 11th current 89 men applied for work. That morning they had taken on 37. The total number of men now employed was 72, and the amount of money spent up to the previous night was £ 47.—Mr Bevan said that a larger number of men had come to seek work than they had anticipated.—Mr Marks moved that the council should repent their instructions to the engineer, provided the weather con- tinued inclement.—Mr W. Bevan seconded, and it was passed. TALYCAFN BRIDGE. Mr Griffith Griffith and anotfher director the Talyeafn Bridge Company waited upon the water and gas committee and dlscusised with them the question of the terms upc-n which the company would agree to carry the water maills of the Llandudno Urban D strict Counoil over the bridge proposed to be ure#ted across the river Conway at Talycafn, Mr Griffith stated that the Vllrectors were pre- plared to accept a. lump sum in li-eu of an annuity. After comÙt-emble discussion the deputation named E130 per annum in per- petuity, or a lump sum of £ 4,000 as the lowest amount which the directors could agios to accept.—At a meeting of the council in committee, held subsequently, it was re- solved that this committee recommend the council n'ot to entertain the proposals of the Tancafn Bridge Company, but to lay a dupli- cate line, of 15-inch pipes ^specially manu- factured and jo^hf ed) adjacent to tlie present river cro^s-ing, anM ..0 put the work in hand forthwith, unless in" the near future an arrangement can be made with the Cowlyd board for crossing over their bridge at Con- way. Mr Elias Jones questioned whether the eOUlwil haU thought the matter over setriously enough to be able to confirm those minutes. They had from the engineer of the board eeveiral schemes for carrying the water over and under the river, which required careful consideration.—Mir E. E. iXxne thought that an annual payment of B80 for permission to carry the mains over the proposed nenv bridge at Talycafn would he enough. If the com- pany Knew that there was a whole series of couwes open to the council, any one of which they could adopt, he thought the company would approa'ch them in a franker spirit.— Mr R. BeEis proposed that £ 80 should1 be offered, inciivd'ng an option to terminate or irene-w the agreement at the end of 20 years. —The proposal was carried. (tCARitYING THE ORME'S HEAD. Mr. E. E. Bone moved that the deputation. which was to wait upon the Local Govern- ment Board about the bye-laws should .aJso be requested to Interview the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for the purpose of endeavour- ing to get betiter regulations for the preven- tion of the- defacement, of the Orme by quarry- ing.—Mr W. Bevan seconded. There was a place where the Ecclesiastical Commissioners were interewk-d near Penymorfa, where quciryiaig was going on.—The motion was carried. TRIENNIAL ELECTIONS. Mr W. Williams mov- d that the counsel ffliould request the County Council to order that the whole of that council should retire CYCTY third year. The cost of the elections of s'x mtimbers was as great as that of 18. The 'last election hjd cost £ 20, so that in 'three years there would be entailed an ex- pense of X189. A great, deni of that would be saved by a triennial election.—Mr R. Bellis seconded.—Mr. E. E. Bone thought that Mr W'-Lisms deserved some crolit for the courage he had shown in bringing the matter forward. It. had been said by the jiresident of the Cymru Fydd League; that that hall been done on previous grounds. What appeared to him (Mr. Bone) to bo against it was that if they "I." reti'ied at trie end of three years they would break the continuity of the work of the council, and there was also the danger of renlly important, work being left undone during the last year tor the sake of keeping down the expenses, and so win popular favour.—Mr Elias Jones said that he had writteni a letter to the lai*t meeting, and he tub ugh! he hail) hurt the feelings of Mr. Linam Williams in that letter. He was sorry that he had dbne so. But he was quite sure it was berter to go on in the usual coursei, that a third should retire every year it kept the council and its work much more steady than they would be if all the members ♦went out together.—(Mr. T. W. Griffith thought that there was a great deal to be said in favour of the proposal. The annual elections of the commissioners had become such a common thing that it had become difficult to get anyone to become a, member of the 1> ar.Vf. But at the election of last December more interest, had been manifested by the ratepayers thalll in a parliamentary election, and some of the gatherings had been unprecedented1 during (he last 10 years.— Mr. E. Thorpet said that if they had au entirely new council returned at the last elec- tion many of the matters which had been under consideration would not have been dis- cussed with as much knowledge as when they had among them members of the old board of commissioners.—Two only voted for the motion, which was accordingly lost. RAILWAY FACILITIES. Mr. Robert Roberts moved that a eom- mittee shorn, be appointed to approach the London and North Western Railway Com- pany with a view to securing improved ra I- way facilities to Llandudno, and that the Town Improvement Association should be asked to cooperate with the council. Lian- dud'iio was unknown to Londoners to the ex- tent it ought- to be. He was very glad to recognise that the London and North-Western Rauway Company had made a. move onward in the way of introducing choap fares by dtent- ing to issue in the month of July, and con- tiniiing .ill,the end of September, 21s. return tickets, available for from one to Mvree weeiks from London to Llandudno. During the past summer the excursions had been very popular, and the. bulk of the visitors who had availed themselves of them had not before been to LlanKnidno. He would move that they should ask the railway company to run trains at a cheap rate to the town during Easter week, and issue the 21s. return tickets a month earlier, and continue them a month later i/hsri Ihev had done during the past c I oonsMered the matter most important, and deserving the most careful consideration.— The motion was carried.
FOOTBALL NOTES. (BY "THE LOITERER."). The Bangor team did not turn up on Satur- day, as had at first been anticipated, but a mutual irrangement had been come to, and the match was postponed. There mlS no eontest in the North Wales League on Saturday, and the table, therefore, remains the same. But next Saturday a very interesting game will be witnessed at Rhyi, j when Flint will meet the leaders to again draw conclusions. Who will win ? Matches. Goals. P. W. L. D. F. A.

The second semi-final for the North Wales Junior Cup came off at Rhyl, before a large attendance, the combatants being the Llan- dudno Swifts Reserves and Buckley Town. In the first half, Buckley, who defended the pavilion end', had decidedly the best of mat- ters, but half-time arrived without any scor- ing. In the second half Llandudno showed vastly superior form, the combination among the forwards soon producing a cleverly-got goal. Buc-kiey in turn forced the play, and drew level, but the Llandudno man were very effective in front of goal, and finally ran out winners by three to one. The defence of Brookes, Roberts, and Hughes, for Buckley, was conspicuous. Llandudno have now to meet Greenfield Villa in the final. Rhyl visited Llanrwst on Saturday, to play a friendly with the home team, before a good crowd of spectators. The ground was covered with three inches of snow. The visitors won the toss, and elected to play with the sun at their backs, but the home team immediatedy scored from a nice run up, another goal fol- lowing a few minutes later. Rhyl pulled to- gether, and after several times experiencing htard lines managed to register No. 1, and when. half-time arrived each had two goals to their credit. On restarting, Rhyl were the first, on the aggressive, and penned the home team in their own goal almost during the whole of the last half. A. Owen notched the third goal, wh..e the fourth, fifth, and sixth followed, in quick succession. the game thus ending in a victory for Rhyl by six goals to two. Newtown received a more severe* whipp- ing" off Everton Reserves in their return friendly at home on Saturday than they did during the holidays at Gooddson Park. Their defeat then was only three goals to one, but on Saturday Everton won by five goals to one. There was a large attendance. Everton, in the first half, the wind in their fav- our, scored five goals to Newtown one. In the second half the play was more evtei, and neither side were able to add to their score. Final score Everton, five goals Newtown, one. » In the third round of the Denbighshire and Flintshire Charity Cup, Rhostyllen Victoria had the Westminster Rovers as visitors. The weather was frosty, but the match attracted a good) attendance. At the interval Rhos- tyllen Victoria led by one goal to none. In the second half each side scored once, and the result was :—Rh&styIIei] Victoria, two goals Westminster Rovers, one. The following teams were selected on Mon- day night to play in the Welsh international trial match at Wrexham Racecourse on March 4 :—'Whites Upton (Druids), goal; Edwards (Oswestry) an-ci Mathlas (Brvmbo). backs; G. Owen (Druids), Benbow (Oswestry), and Evans (Druids), half-backs; Haycocks (Rhos). Harrison (Wrexham), Trainer (Wrex- ham), Jones (Mi--wall Athletic), and T. Owen (Wrexham), forwards. Stripes Arridge (Bangor), goal; Roose (Mold) and Ellis (Shrewsbury), backs; Williams (Chirk), BucklanOi (Bangor), and Davies (Cardiff), half-backs; Meredith (Chirk). Pryce-Jones (Newtown), James (Chirk), Mvtton (-New- town), and Beasley (Cardiff), forwards, Mr R. T. Gougli (Oswestrv), referee. Are there no players from Aberystwyth, Carnarvon, Llandudno, Rhyl, and Flint worth v of a trial ? There was a large attendance at the Wrex- ham Racecourse on Monday to witness an encounter between representatives of the araiy and navy. The 2nd Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers (Manche-ster), and H.M.S. Excellent" sent the competing elevens, and a silver cup (value £ 14), subscribed for by the members of the Wrexham Church Gym- naftium, was offered to the successful team, Half-time score Navy, four goals; Army, one. Final Navy, five goals Army, three. < By their victory over the Red Stars at Mold, the previous week, the Druids have improved their position in the Welsh League, and thereby pass Chirk, but the latter have two more games in hand.

The tillw that had set in during the week had made the ground a bit slippery, There was a fairly good gate. The had a weak team, and had to play the first fifteen minutes with nine men. I expected an easy win for the home team. but when I reached the field and saw how matters stood. I had given up all hopes. The University men played a very nice combined game, and the backs and goalkeeper showed up well. Carnarvon were the first to score, but the poiiat was disallowed. Then the visitors had a look in and a goal to their credit was scored, which was a very tame one. Just on the call of half-time, Pritchard equalised. | After the interval Carnarvon played a little better, but far from form. Edwards sent in a beauty, which struck the crossbar. but Pritchard made it safe, and scored X o. 2. After this the home forwards made sever- al trials, but the visitors' goalkeeper (Jenkins) and Williams (left hack) played grandly. The University men managed to score twice again, and returned victors by three goals to two, the result of the previous match at Bangor being a win for the .K ops by 3-1. Well, 'Nops, you are letting the game pro- ceed too far before rousing yourselves up. The team that played the best game won, they were better combined, while some of the homesters had a tendency to lie selfish. For the Ironopolis, Pritchard, Edwards, and H. Williams played well at forward I Bob Llovd Jones capital at half, and Vy. Jones and D. O. Williams at back. but were very weakly assisted at goal, the custodian being that of the Bangor Druid Rovers. Gray (inside left) and Pritchard (outside right), for the visitors, also played well, and the trio halves put in some good work.
