(chairman), Rev F Jewell, and Messrs \V H Coward, J.P., T J Scott, J B Linnell. r B Griffith, Peter Ellis, A Greenwood,1 Jno Williams, T Parry Williams, and rhos. Hughes, with the Clerk (Mr fno. Hughes) and the Surveyor (Mr William Thomas). The Pierrate. The recommendation of the Road Committee that Mr Aiston be given per- m ission to bring his pierrots herf again next year for a rental of .£111 "\V:1: adopted. Lady McLaren's New Road. The Surveyor presented a detailed report as to the condition of the new road between Nant Hall Road and Marine Road. The total width of the bridge and approaches was 27 feec. There being a footway oft. Bin. wide on either side, the width of the carriage way was 20 feet. The road on the south side was 1 2 yards in width. Weeds were much in evidence on the new road, and some very effective method would have to be adopted to satisfactorily get rid of them. otherwise they were certain to be a source of great expense to the Council in the event of t hI) road being taken over as it stood. The surface of the road was of Penmaenmawr granite, and as far as the bridge and r aiii approaches were concerned, it was in good condition, but the portion leading from Nant Hall Road was too Hat in some places, and would require about t-() loads of stone to give it a satisfactory crown. The paths at the junction with Xant Hall Road were finished oil abruptly. A great improvement would be effected by round- ing off the corners at that point. In other details also there was considerable room for improvement, it was important that there should be some distinct understand- ing as to the banks alongside the bridge approaches. Were they to become the property uf the Council? If not, who would be responsible for the care of the trees ? Concluding, the Surveyor Raid: I am assuming in this report that th• Council have already agreed not to enforce I kerbiu^, channelling, sewering, lighting, and paving therefore I do not make any comment on those matters." The Road Committee repoited having had the report under consideration, and the decision they came to was to write to Lady McLaren, drawing her attention to l the fact that the Council's resolution upon ( the road, passed in November last, had not been complierl with. The Health Committee Reported that the Surveyor had found all the workshops in the district, with one exception, satisfactory, and in that case matters requiring attention were being dealt with. The scavenging was proceeding satisfactorily. All the slaugh- ter-houses were in good order. Matters for Investigation. It was reported that a committee had been appointed to deal with a question of encroachment at the quarry also with an application by Mr W J Williams, The Stores, Station Road, for consent to con- tinue the pavement along the whole length of his frontage and with a letter from Mr Frank Jewell asking the Council to inspect Pendref Avenue with a view to taking over that road. Anothar Bungalow. Plans submitted by Mr Partington. Liverpool, for a bungalow in Sandy Lane. were passed. £ s. d. The Finance Committee reported that the receipts for August totalled £:3()2 18s. 5d., made up as follows :— General district rate, £ 219 19s. Id.; water rate, f, i-),,5 0s. I od.; private street works. £ 24 15s.; miscel- laneous. £3 os. 6d- The total collections to date amounted to £8S3 Is. lid. Rhyl County School A Little Grievance. A letter was read from Jr J Roberts Jones. Clerk of the Governors of the Rhyl County School, intimating that Mr Scott's term of ollice as the repre- sentative of the Council on that body had expired. Mr Coward, in proposing Mr Scon's re- election, spoke appreciatively of the services he-had rendered in that capacity. Mr Griffith seconded. Mr Jewell Must our nominee be a member of the Council V Tile Chairman An outsider may be chosen. After a pause the Chairman declared the motion carried unanimously. Mr Scott, in thanking his colleagues for again reposing their confidence in him, said the work embraced a question in which he had taken considerable interest. In his capacity as a governor of the Rhyl County School he thought he could claim to have been able to obtain bursaries for children whose parents could not arford the full fees from Pres- tatyn. He did not think the advantages and benetits of the school were sufficiently known. The sum distributed in scholar- ships or bursaries, internal and external, amounted to as much as f 175 a year-a sum which very materially helped chil- dren to apceii(C the educational ladder. Hitherto Prestatyn had had only one representative on the governing body. But now he would have as colleague Mi- Thomas Williams, whom the County Council had appointed in the place of the late Mr Llcnvelyn Jones (hear, hear). The Chairman said he was dad to learn that Prestatyn now had two repre- sentatives on the governing body of the County School. Still he was not quite satisfied. He was disappointed at not finding the name of Mr Scott, as repre- senting Prestatyn, in the list of persons identified with last week's bazaar. Repre- sentatives were chosen from Newmarket, Rhuddlan, and St Asaph, and surely Prestatyn was as much entitled to a repre- sentative as any of those places. He hoped that in future undertakings in connection with the school a fair share of representation would be accorded I Prestatyn (hear. hear).
