Upon the proposal of Mr Hugh Owen, the steam roller driver, Hugh Williams, was retained for another month pending further arrange- ments. A LLANBEDR ROAD. Mr John Davies, the Highway Surveyor, re- ported that he recommended two culverts to be constructed on the Penyn ant-road, Llanbedr, one to be of stone and the other nine-inch pipes, and he estunated the cost of putting in repair a portion of the road of about 100 yards, by Salem chapel, at £ 8. He also recommended that the Glanyrafon cul- vert at Llechwedd be extended from six to eigtht feet. The Surveyor's recommendation was adopted. SURFACE WATER COMPLAINT AT LLYSFAiN. The Road Surveyor reported that two gullies and gratings had lately been placed upon the county road at Penmaen Rhos, Llysfaen, so as to take surface water, and the outlet pipe from both was discharging on to a public footpath, which leads to the Council's road, causing an- noyance to users of both the footpath and road. The report was adopted. GLAN CONWAY WATER MAINS. The Road Surveyor stated that he had in- spected the trenches and had no complaint to make, with the exception of about thirty yards of Pen-Tai-road, in the village, which requires levelling down a little; but all others of their roads had stood the wet weather remarkably well. QUEEN'S ROAD, LLANDUDNO JUNCTION. The Road Surveyor submitted the cost of re- pairing she above road:—Manual labour, N64 9s. 8d. team labour, ^23 2s. 4d. mater- ials, £ 20 11s. 3d. removal of wall, &c., by con- tractor, Mr David Roberts, £17 zos. Mr Lev; John's estimate, Z142; actual cost, ^134 135. 3d. cost under estimate, £ j 6s. 9a, Mr Hugh Owen It was a very good estimate, and I think we have done very well in carrying out the work ourselves. The Chairman They did very well. The Council was of opinion that the work was a credit to the two Surveyors. Mr Hugh Owen remarked that it was a pity that the gas mains had not been laid down be- lore the proper making of the road was pro- ceeded with. There was sure to be some drag- ging when the mains were being put down. Mr Ben Fisher hoped that the road would be put right after the gas mains had been laid. as near as possible as it was before operations commenced. The Chairman suggested that the Surveyor must see that this was done. Air John Davies, surveyor, said he was sure it would be alright. PENMAENRHOS PATHS. At a special meeting of the Council held on the 12th November, the Clerk read a letter from the Office, of Works, which stated that the Office was directed by Sir Stafford Howard to state that Messrs Kneeshaw. Lupton & Co. had for- warded to him a copy of the Council's letter to them, dated the 23rd October, and its terms ap- peared to be inconsistent with those of the Council's letter under reply, and whethei-, he was to understand that the Council, on further con- sideration, was prepared to fence in the path running from the bottom of the steps across lots iS and 19, with an unclimbable iron fence, as was understood to be the arrangement made at the meeting on the 10th December last. As re- gards the other path running down to the shore, it was understood that the necessary arrange- ments between the Council and Messrs Knee- shaw & Co. for the setting back of the door have been made, and that the formation of the path by the Council would now proceed as soon as it had been satisfactorily completed payment of the Crown's promised contribution of £7 10s. would b- made. It W.3 resolved that the following reply be sent: —" The Council are not prepared to fence the path running from the bottom of the steps across lots 18 and 19, with an unclimbable iron. fence, as they do not consider the path of any advantage to the public but the path from the steps to the bottom road lead- ing to the railway bridge was required to be opened- for the use of the public, and the Coun- cil will feel obliged to Sir Stafford Howard if he would get Messrs Kneeshaw, Lupton & Co. to remove the obstruction." After some discussion it was decided, as the matter kept being considered month after month, that Mr Raynes and the Chairman call at the office in London with a view of arranging the matter SLAUGHTERING IN THE JUNCTION. The Sanitary Surveyor reported that slaugh- tering was still being carried on by Mr W. Evans in the temporary building at the Junction. although he was ordered to discontinue, and the Surveyor would like to have the Council's in. structions. The Clerk stated that a communication had been received from Evans stating that he would like to appear personally before the Council to explain his position. Mr Evans appeared before the Council, and he explained that he had a great difficulty in finding a place, and he was reminded that he had stated that he had one in view some tiiim ago. A long discussion ensued, and Evaa.s ad- vised to seek another place at once, as the Council could do nothing further than insist upon the law being carried out in the matter. SURFACE WATER DRAIN AT PYDEW. Mr Levi John, the Sanitary Surveyor, reported that the commilttee met at the above place on November 6th. After some consideration, they decided to open once more, in Glanllyn Garden, at the end of the existing pipes, to try and find the joints in the rock into which the surface water has been running for a considerable time, Failing this, the alternative would be to lay a surface water drain for a distance of about 250. yards, at a cost of from fgo to £roo. The matter was deferred until the next meet- ing. SCAVENGING LLANDUDNO JUNCTION. THREATENED PROSECUTION. Mr Levi John reported that he was sorry that he was compelled to draw the Council's atten- tion again to the way in which the scavenging is carried out in the Junction portion of Llan. gwstenin. The bins were left for a fortnight or three weeks without having been emptied, and no amount of warning on his part had the least effect upon the scavenger, Mr Owen Griffiths. The Clerk was instructed to summon the con. tractor before the magistrates. Mr Hugh Owen stated that complaints about the matter had been made to him. DENBIGHSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL AND LLYSFAEN. A memorial of the County Council of Den- bighs-hire to the Local Government Board with regard to Llysfaen was read, in which it was stated that the said parish of Llysfaen is en. tirely surrounded by the County "of Denbigh, and that the boundaries of the main body of the county of Carnarvon at its nearest point was about three miles' distant from the said parish that the existence within the county of Denbigh
