Notes and Comments. SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION. This Friday evening a public meeting^of undenomi- nationalists will be held in the Lesser Hall, to consider whether it is advisable to take any steps in connection with the forthcoming School Board Election. We understand the present members representing the above section of the electors of Penarth have been invited to attend, and should they be present a number of questions will be submitted to them, and if their replies be satisfactory, the probability is, the meeting will not see fit to submit the names of other gentlemen. If, however, the Undenominationalists desire to retain a majority on the Board, we firmly believe this can only be done by a fifth candidate entering the ranks' We admit the four present members, insofar as undenominational teaching is concerned, have faithfully discharged their duties, but there are other matters to be considered, and it is useless to hide the fact that there are many in Penarth who, rather than vote for Mr. George Carslake Thompson, would abstain from voting altogether, and if this should be done the Denominationalists would have no difficulty in securing a majority. But how can Mr Thompson come forward and solicit the vote of the undenomina- tional party, when at the last general election he threw his heart and soul into the various tactics employed to secure the return of the Conservative Candidate who was pledged to vote for placing volun- tary schools on the same footing as Board Schools— that is, that Church, Catholic, and other denomina- tional schools be supported by the ratepayers generally the same as Board Schools? Nonconfor" mists as a body, and not a few Churchmen, strongly oppose such a proposal, and we doubt not Mr Thompson will be asked to retire to make room for a man who is more in accord with the Nonconformist body of Penarth- An effort is to be made, we are, informed, to return a Roman Catholic on the new Board, one or two more Churchmen threaten an attempt to capture another seat, but what are the Nonconformists going to do ? Now is their time for action. As like one man they must arise. They must be united. The best men the Nonconformist Churches have must be brought into the contest. Men of sound principles must be induced to deprive themselves, if needs be, to promote the interests of the young and rising race. Unless this in done the Undenominational majority is' in danger. To arms then, to arms! Rise to the conflict- Assert your rights and maintain your position.

Mayne (Arcot Street Wesleyan). The question of forming a local Union to be directly associated with the London Sunday School Union, instead of Cardiff, was under discussion, but was adjourned for further consideration at a future meeting. The establishment of a local teachers' examination C'lass was also discussed, but it was allowed to drop a s it was thought the time had not yet arrived when 8 uch a class was desirable. s ucb a class was desirable.

=--= r- Public Health of Penarth. ABNORMALLY HIGH MORTALITY At the Public Health committee meeting of the Penartb District Council held on Monday night, Mr H. Snell presiding, the medical officer reported that during the month of September there were registered 39 births, 21 males and 18 females, corresponding to a rate of 34.8 per 1000 per annum. During the same period 16 deaths occurred, representing a rate of 14.2 per 1,000 per annum. Singularly, no death happened in either Cogan or Llandough, and the unusually high rate of mortality (which, however, was only 5.4 for the corrsponding period of last year) was due to an epidemic of diarrhoea, nine of the fatal cases occurring among children under 1 ve u of age. Of tko eauses of death 1 was referred to heart disease, 2 infantile convulsioas, 1 whooping cough, 7 diarrhoea, and 5 to ilseasefc not neoessnrily cHt.lfiecL Nine of the deaths occuried among those under 1 year, 2 between 1 and 5, 2 between 5 and 25, 1 between 25 and 60, and 2 upwards of 60. Under the Infectious Diseases (Notifications) Act only one certificate- that of Scarlet Fever—had been received.
Penarth District Council. ABANDONMENT OF PLANTING TREES IN CHURCH AVENUE. PROPOSED ABATEMENT OF SEWER GAS EXHALATION. The Public Works Committee Meeting was held on Monday night. There were present Messrs. H Sneli (Chairman), D Morgan, L Purnell, J Y Strawson, J Pavey, R Bevan, Sam Thomas, R Guy, and the Surveyor, Clerk and Inspector of Nuisances. Only one tender for the erection of a urinal in Ludlow Street, was sent in, viz. Messrs James Allen, Senior, and Co., Cardiff, for f60 15s Od. A letter was read from Mr T Eralyn Jones to the effect that as he had seen the specfications nnd plans only last Wednesday, he should esteem it a favour were he allowed to tender on the following- Monday. As, however, Allen's tender bad been opened, on the motion of Mr Strawson, seconded by Mr Guy, it was decided to recommend the Council to accept Allen's tender. That Mr Jones bad been unable tc see plans, etc., was confirmed by the Surveyor. The Surveyor reported that having no instructions he had not wired the remaining- trees. Throe more rolls would be required for the street-, t",k- over by the Council, and three more for streets b, j ¡! requiring private improvements. Mr D Morgan Better protect the trees, whatever we do. Mr Guy suggested that wire be us having no selvage edge, and spiral in form to p • ;:de ail farther damages sartorial. Surveyor: Mr Reed's coat was torn ::> by the fastening but by the raw edge. Eventually Mr Guy's suggestion was adopted, Mr Purnell moving and Mr Morgan s n As the gas and water mains in Ctiarch Avenue, were 2 feet 3 inches from either side of the wall. It was decided to abandon planting trees there. Mr Purnell thought the trees might be planted in the middle of the Avenue, but this was also ;b.indoned, as that thoroughfare is only 20 feet 9 inches from wall to wall, and 18 feet 9 inches from dnHHel to channel. The Surveyor further reported that C»rrt-y-vil Road, would not be finished on October 01st, there being quite another month's work there. In consequence of the noiasome smell,s exhaling from the various manholes, the Surveyor t eoonamen- ded the erection of 12 sewer gas destru which would be 30 feet high, 5 feet diameter,, and costing L9 5s Od each. He was instructed to report upon the positions for the destructors, and a sub-oommitte<. e >inprising Messrs Snell and Purnell were deputed .o look into the matter. In consequence of the Council's officials bavin test a large number of drains, it was Bu^^ted 1 a nominal price be fixed for doing this work. The Chairman deemed this impolitic as letidin- lessen publie confidence. Mr Snell was supported in this view hy the OJ reading a section of the Public Healths to effect that the authority need only v here c plaints are mude. ° Thiij concluded the whole business.
