Answering questions by Councillor Edward Roberts, the Borough Surveyor and the Mayor explained how recent sudden stoppages of water- supply in Conway, had occurred, and the latter also considered that proposed stoppages of water should be notified in Gyffin as well as Conway. Alderman Hugh Hughes sug-gested that during the unfinished state of the Cowlyd works, house- holders should, as far as possible, keep a reserve supply of water in their houses. The Town Clerk said that the law required each householder to have a cistern containing twelve hours' stock of water The Borough Surveyor said that very few houses had such cisterns, and that such a system was unhealthy. After a little further discussion, the matter dropped. A COMMITTEE APPOINTED. Alderman Hugh Hughes and Councillors John Hughes and Edward Roberts were appointed a Committee to inspect the sites shown in certain building-plans submitted, and to assist the Borough Surveyor in deciding whether such sites were suitable for the buildings, and also to inspect certain buildings at Deganwy which were alleged not to have been built according to plan. THE WORKMEN'S DWELLINGS LOAN.

A NUISANCE AT LLANRHOS. With reference to a nuisance which had arisen from cesspools at Dr Gould's houses at Llanrhos, but which had now been temporarily remedied, it was ordered that Dr Gould be told to have any nuisance prevented, and that on any nuisance arising, proceedings will be taken without further notice. FIRE-BRIGADE EQUIPMENT.. Councillors J. P. Griffiths, J. W. Tosdevine, and John Roberts, were appointed a Committee to examine the tenders relating to fire-brigade equipment, and to report to the Council. The Borough Surveyor presented plans for draining the Gyffin district into the Gyffin river, and these were approved, the Town Clerk being instructed to apply for the Local Government Board's sanction to a £ 600 loan. Plans for draining houses on Bangor Road, and the un- drained houses within the Borough, at an estim- ated expense of £ 160, were presented and approved, the Town Clerk being instructed to enlarge the application by £200, namely, from £ 6ao to --rSoo. The Town Clerk reported that the Railway authorities had written stating, with reference to the road traffic delays at the Junction level- crossing, that, except for the last train at night, all tickets were now collected at Deganwy.
