-e- THE NEW WATER MAIN. LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD INQUIRY. A Local Government Board inquiry was conducted by Mir F. O. Stamford in the Council Chamber on Friday into an application by the Llandudno Urban Dis- trict Council for sanction to borrow £ 5,226 for the purpose of extending their water main from Llandudno Junction to te boundary of the Urban District at Llan- rhos, including the execution of works in t the parishes of Llanrhos, Llangwstenin, and Penrhyn. Mr Con oily, clerk to the Council, gave the usual details respecting the district. The assessable value was £ 101,718. The population in 1901 was 9,271, but was estimated to be at present 11,052. The area of the district is 2,686 acres, and the rates 5s. lOd. in the pound,, of which 2s. is poor rate. A penny in the pound for improvement purposes represented 2400. The rates gjiven did not, include water charges, which worked out at Is. Id. in the pound. The outstanding loan debt amounted to 2'2,09,780, the total cost of the scheme already carried out had been £ 28,632, When it was completed it, was believed that the town would be sufficient- ly supplied for some years to come. The new work had already been commenced "with the object of providing work for the unemployed, a course which the Local Government Board had sanctioned. The amount already spent on this head— £ 100 —had been paid out, of the suspense account. A member of the Council had raised the objection that a portion of the work already done would be superseded by the new work, but the deputy engineer, at the request of the Clerk, explained that the section referred to would not be aban- doned but would continue in use. The Inspector: Then it won't actually be superseded] The Deputy Engineer No. Mr McMaster said that as one of tthe minority on the District Council he had intended to oppose the scheme very strong- ly, but owing to a judicious engineering of the unemployed question the minority had practically been put out of court, and it, was now scarcely worth while saying anything about it. He, however, stated at considerable length the grounds of ob- jection, which he had previously stated in the Council. After the deputy engineer had given evi- dence, the inquiry was closed,, and the in- spector, accompanied by some of the offi- cials, proceeded to examine the works.
