Groceries, Best and Cheapest, LEWIS BBrs., Taff -street. 326lr Colonel Marsh, R.N., a Local Government Board Inspector, held an inquiry at the Council Chamber on Thursday into the merits of the Council's application for sanction to borrow a sum of L350. This amount is intended to be applied to the cost of erecting the much-needed bridge over the River Rhondda, and connecting .Hopkinstown with Pwllgwaun. The Council was represented by the Vice-chairman (Mr P. Gowan, Hopkinstown) and the clerk (Colonel H. Ll. Grover), who is now gradually recovering from his long and severe illness. There was a small attendance of ratepayers. Mr Rees, sur- veyor to the Council, explained the scheme and proved the urgent necessity of such a bridge to accommodate the people of Pwllgwaun, and also of the Graig Ward. Colonel Marsh, ac- companied by the surveyor, visited the bridge, which is in course of erection. Opposition to the scheme was offered by Mr Arthur Seaton and Mr Dewi Llewellyn, both of whom dis- agreed with the principle of any kind of bridge at this spot, and added that it was not required by the public. How far they were authorised to lay the objection in the name of a. large section of the ratepayers did not transpire, and there oan be no doubt that the Inspector will endorse the Council's wise action in providing a boon so long demanded by the working-classes of the locality.

Two boys residing at Trallwn saw what was happen- ing, and. immediately ran to give the alarm. P.C. Lewis, Norton Bridge, and P.S.
