Bone suggesting that incandescent burners should ibe [provided for all lamps which are situated at the junction of two streets, 'r are in such a .position as to be opposite to a street turning at right angles to a str.-i-t to which a lamp is fixed. It was decicieo to consider the suggestion when the Water and Gas Committee meet to make their an- nual 'lamp inspection. APPLICATION FROM RURAL COUNCIL. A letter was read from the Clerk to the Conwav Rural Council asking if the Coun- cil would fix a larnp at the top of Penrhyn Hill as that noint is considered by the Pen- rhyn Parish Council to be dangerous on IC. count of the electric cans. A relport iat, submitted stating that it will Tequi-re 150 -vards of four-inch main and 460 yards of three-inch main along Brynyfbia and Bod- aton roads as far as Cliff Cottage, to sup- ply the houses en route.

It was decided to carry out the work. The question of fixing a lamp at the Pen- ihyn Hill corner was deferred. GAS IN BULK. FOR With regard to a supply of gas to Mr Parr's souses on the Warren, it was de- cided to supply gas in bulk to the Conway Town Council through a main meter to be fixed at the south-west side of Bryniau- ¡roao, at a sum of 36 2d ;pei, 1000 cubic feet, meter rent to be charged for in addi- THE LIGHT RAILWAY OO. The Clerk was requested to write to the Light Railway Company to ask for the, de- cision of the company, with regard to elec- uic current within seven days. With regard to the draft- of the bye-laws dealing with the ove-rciowding of the light railway cars and other matters the clerk was asked to communicate with the Colwyn Bay Council with a view to a series of bye- laws applicable to both districts being agreed upon. ABATTOIRS' SUPERINTENDENT. The Water, Gas, and Electricity Commit- tee reported as follows:—The msistant en- gineer presented a nlan which he had pre (pared of a house to be erected on the south- west corner ott the abattoirs site as a resi- dence for the abattoirs superintendent and' caretaker. The cost of the building was estimaited at L390. It was decided to pre- paxe detailed plans and estimates. Mr McMaster referred to the fact that they, the Council, had spent JB6000 on the erection of the public abattoirs, and that they had paid out of the rates last year the sum of L91 to make up the deficit. He asked whether, in view of that fact, it was right that the Council should be asked to build a house in addition. The Chairman Excuse me, Mr McMas- ter. But do you understand that the super- intendent will pay rent for the house? Mr McMaster replied in the affirmative. Proceeding, the Speaker referred to the teems of the Mostyn Estate for the conver- sion of the 99 years' leases to 999 years. The Chairman asked whether Mr Mc- Master considered it right to anticipate the decision of the special committee to be held on the morrow (Thursday). Mr McMaster stated that he was not an- ticipating anything. The figures were pub lie property. Mr J. 0. Thomas It is a great shame- Mr McMaster: I know. nothing about it. I only want to show the real position ve are in. It was decided, on the motion of Mr J. 0. Thomas, seconded by Mr Hugh Edwards, to refer the matter back to the committee. THE WEST (SHORE. As requested, the West Shore Inspector submitted a report of the assistance given by him during the past summer to persons in danger of being Surrounded by the tide. The inspector suggested the advisability of placing another raft on the hank of the black ro-eksl the place being inaccessible by hoa.t. It was arranged to inspect the site before deciding upon the. matter. MR CHURCHILL'S SURETY. Mr Churchill's solicitor w.rote inquiring whetther with a view to dispensing with the question of Mr Churchill's providing an- other surety and saving further expense the Council would accept now next year's rent ( £ 250) and allow interest or rebate on the amount. lIt was decided to agree to the. propcsal and to allow Mr Churchill interest accord- ing to the Taite of interest allowed to t.3i« Council by the bank. THE FTAEE, LIBRARY. The Clerk iraad correspondence with Messrs Chamberlain and Johnson with re- ference to the suggestion that Mr Wi'iams should be paid C50 in settlement of all [ damages, and that the Council snould te permitted to carry out the erection :n ac- cordanoe with the original plan: a"stilt- ing that Mr Williams is advised that the extent ci the damage would not be less than £250. As an alternative, Mr John- eon had since jstaStedl .that Mr Williams was quite prepared to leave the qaestior. of amount to any expert that might be agreed upon. After discussion it was iecided to pro- ceed with the work in accordance with the plans as agreed upon by Mr Hartley and the Council's Architect. Library Committee r»~port3il having icoiifcirif red the steps to be taken to raise the sum of £ 400 required in addition to the sum of £ 600 which is available for the purpose of paying off the mortgage debt on the ex- isting building. It was decided to recom- mend the Council to make a temporary (transfer to a 6pecial suspense account of the sum of L400 from the profits of the gas -undertaking, such sum to be repaid to the undertaking out ox the proceeds olf the sale Of Glandinorwic Writing Slate Mill Pro- perty as soon as a sale can be effected. The Library and Reading Room Commit- tee offered to sell all books, furniture, and fittings, together with the Kenrick oollec- tion and all other curios, for £ 250. The offer was not entertained. ALLOTMENTS. The Allotments Subcommittee 'had con- sidered a'plan submitted by Mr Ward shew- ing, set out in plots of l-8th acre, the land opposite the Council's property in King's- xoad proposed to be let i'or allotment gar- dens. They decided that the plots should be marked out in plots of l-16th part of an acre, and that the tenants of the houses in King's-road should have the option of tak- ing one or more plots at a rental of 15s per plot, such rent to 'iiclude rates and taxes and to be payable monthly; the plots to be let on a six months' tenancy subje .t to the power of the Council to terminate the tenancy if a tenant neglects to keep his_plot in a, proper state of cultivation or gets in arrear for than one month with his rent. The Cleiik reported- that nine of the Council's tenants in King's-road were de- sirous of becoming, tenants, and one of the applicants wished, to take two; this would leave six plots still to be let. THE WATER, WORIKS. The Water, Gas, and Electricity Commit- xnittee recommended that the Council reduce the price for water supplied to all con- sumers through meter from Is 6d to Is 3d per 1000 gallons. Mr D. Davies proposed that the matter be referred back to the committee t«.r further reconsideration. He did not object to granting the concession of Is 3d per 1000 gallons to' hydros and other large es- tablishments obtaining water by meter, but he did object to letting water run at ran- dom. It was proposed to allow 30 gallons per head per day- and, he presumed, that an average twould he taken of the visitors staying at the hydros. But it would all be mere guesswork. Besides, he could not see how the committee could recommend a re- I duction in the price, when the water con- cern did not pay, and that it took L1200 from the gasworks revenue to make up last duction in the price, when the water con- cern did not pay, and that it took £ 1200 from the gasworks revenue to make up last year's deficit. Mr R. Roberts seconded. Until the committee was in a position to say that the j water concern was paying, the Council cou!d not be reasonably expected to reduce the price. Mr E. E. Bone said that as a business policy it was a very good movement. Mr McMaster believed that the two sys- tems would work together, and that, even- tually, the Council would be able to re- coup the loss which the concern made at present. Mr Wm. Thomas would like to have the matter referred back because he believed that it had not received the consideration it deserved. Mr T. W. Griffith observed that people would use water for other than domestic purposes through meters more freely onco the price was reduced. One shilling and threepence was a very high price. In Man- chester it was only Is per 1000 gallons, and there was a town in Carnarvonshire where only sixpence per 1000 gallons was paid. The ,recommetndation of the committee was carried by a large majority. YAW WORK3DEX ARE TREATED. The Water and 'Gas Committee had under consideration an application by the asphalt foreman for eight days holidays on full pay. The committee decided that as the foreman receives overtime pay, and does not, as in the case of the gasworks men, work seven days a week, they -could not .recommend the Council to grant the request. A letter was read from Mr H. F. Jones asking ithe Woiks Committee to consider the question df payment to the widow oif the late Mr Edward Williams, foreman, ot wages during her husband's illness. The Clerk was requested to write TO Mrs Williams expressing the committee's sympathy -with her in her bereavement, and to say that tiie I eci- nkittee regret that having regard to the resolution standing on the books with re- ference to the payment of wages to work- men during illness, they are unable t-1 deii with the application. NEW ROAD TO THE CEMETERY. Amended plans of the proposed new road to the cemetery from the Marine Drive were submitted, and it was decided that 1 the agreement with the churchwardens be sealed. Mr Humphreys wrote to state that he felt certain that Lord Mostyn would also ap- prove of the scheme, but he was too far away at present to do so now. 1 It was decided to proceed with the work forthwith, and on the motion of Mr T. W. Griffith, the Clerk was authorised to apply to the Local Government Board for sanction to borrow C2550 to defray the ex- penditure. Mr Hugh Edwards: Have we sufficient people out of work in Llandudno to put on the job, or must we advertise for men? The Chairman: Unfortunately, we have more than sufficient at Llandudno. The Assistant Engineer stated that the estimated expeiidit&'e of the amended route would show a savirj of about £ 200 -besides the additional improvements it would en- tail. He hoped to put the work in hand on Monday (hear, hear).
