of such isolated part of another county was the cause of great inconvenience and trouble in the administration of county work, especially in re- gard to the repair and maintenance of main, roads, the police administration, and the ad- J ministration of the Public Health Acts and the Poor Law Acts. Inquests have been hitherto held by the Coroner for West Denbighshire at the expense of the county of Denbigh. Persons charged with offences in Llysfaen are now usually tried before the Petty Sessional Court at Colwyn Bay in the county of Denbigh, and it has been the practice hitherto, when such persons are committed, to send them to the Denbighshire Assizes or Quarter Sessions. Under the Licensing Laws, holders of licences- for the sale of intoxicating drinks have now to go to Conn-ay, which is six or eight miles' dis- tant, to get their licences renewed, whereas the Colwyn Bay Sessional Court was not more than two or three miles' distant from any part of the parish of Llysfaen. The most convenient places for otaining secondary education open to the children in the parish of Llysfaen are at Aber- gele and Colwyn Bay, both of which are in the county of Denbigh, and are within easy distance from Llysfaen. It would be a great advantage in many respects if the parish were transferred to Denbighshire, and it does not appear that any disadvantage would accrue to the inhabitants of the parish by such transference. Mr Hugh Owen (who is a member of the Car- narvonshire County Council) stated -that he haa to attend a committee meeting on the matter. What was the view of the representative of the parish ? Mr J. W. Raynes said he had hitherto strong- ly objected to the course proposed by Denbigh- shire but having regard for the fact that the Carnarvonshire Council would not give the par- ishioners what was due to them-they had been refused an extra policeman for the parish. The Carnarvonshire County Council bad refused to give due attention to the schools, and to provide properly for roadside paths. He thought, per- sonally, it would be better for the parish to be associated with Denbighshire. He believed the disadvantages of the change would be out- weighed by the advantages. On the motion of Mr Raynes, it was resolved to defer the consideration of the matter for a month, pending the conference which is to take place between representatives of the two County Councils.
