Bay was outvoted at the Cowlyd Board at the last meeting. [Applause]. The resolution was carried. The Rev. J. G. Haworth asked whether it was a fact that any expression of feeling had been made in the Council that Mr T. Parjy would not represent them on the Cowlyd Board, because he had noticed in the District some election placards making such assertions in case certain persons are not elected. It was remarked that no such feeliug existed, and that the placards were an election dodge. [Laughter]. The adjourned special meeting of the Council was held on Tuesday, March 31st, when there were present the Rev. Thomas Parry (Chairman), Messrs William Davies and John Blud (who took their seats after their re-election), Messrs George Bevan and John Porter, and the Revs W. Venables-Williams and J. G. Haworth. The Council having considered in Committee the qualifications of each of the contractors for the foreshore improvements, it was moved by the Rev. Venables-Williatns, and seconded, that the tender of Mr Jacob Biggs, of Birmingham, be accepted. Mr John Roberts subsequently suggested that the meeting be adjourned, in order that the Colwyn representatives, who would be certain to object to such an important contract being let in their absence, might attend. The Rev. Venables-Williams did not think an adjournment was necessary, as they were there in consequence of the last adjournment, when the date of that meeting was fixed. It wss subsequently decided to adjourn until the following morning (Wednesday) the Clerk being instructed to issue notices. The Clerk was also instructed to wire to Mr Jacob Biggs, asking him to attend the next day's meeting, it being under- stood that the motion to let him the contract had been agreed to.
