RHYL COUNCIL. THE; PROPOSED NEW MARINE LAKE. The monthly meeting of Rhyl Council was held on Monday. It was reported by Mr Goodall, the sur- veyor, that last month he caused 6,120 loads of sand to be removed from the pro- menade, parade roads, and foreshore, and that he had fixed screens to check a further drift. Almost the whole of the drift sand had now been removed. The Committee directed the Surveyor to in- quire whether the London and North- Western Railway Company or Messrs Wright, of Birmingham, or both, would agree to cart, the sand away for their own purposes at, their own cost. Mr William Williams, of Rhyl, wrote offering a perpetual licence of his new patent sand screen for 23G after trial. It was decided to test the screen next autumn. A LLAKE: ON THE, SEA FRONT'. The Road Committee's report contained the following min u te "M,r Doughty, solicitor, and Mr Smith, architect, ap- peared before the Committee to inquire whether the Council would be prepared to entertain a proposal to construct a marine lake opposite the Queen's Hotel, to be of such dimensions and in such a position as the Council may think desirable. The Committee, after discussion, very much favoured the idea, and they recommended that the Council promise their considera- tion of a, well-defined scheme over an area somewhere between High-street and Queen-street, and to support it so far as it lies within their power, and subject to a satisfactory agreement with the pro- moters." This report came up for confirmation, and Mr Rhydwen Jones suggested that they should not. tie themselves to Mr Doughty. A. respected townsman, Mr Eilwy Williams, had projected such a scheme for years, and before the Council took any steps they should consult Mr Ehvy Williams. They should preserve their sea front and not allow any more of it to get into private hands. ,v Mr H. A. Tilby said he was getting shy of approving schemes in the abstract-- they were used against them afterwards. —(Hear, hear.) They ought to go no further than say they promised their con- sideration of a well-designed scheme over an area between High-steert and Queen- streetz and such a scheme if prepared should be submitted to a- committee of the whole Council.—(Hear, hear.) He moved an amendment to that effect. Mr T. D. Jones seconded. Mr J. Frimston said that his recollec- tion of what occurred, at the meeting was that they never promised to give their support. That was never contemplated at all.-(Hear, hear.) The idea of Mr Doughty was to lay out an area of the beach as a lake for boating, etc. Mr J. H. Ellis said that nothing could be done without the consent of the Board of Trade and the Office of Woods and Forests. After further discussion Mr Tilby's amendment was carried. CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH. The report of the Medical Officer of Health (Dr. Eyton Lloyd) for 1908 show- ed that the, birth-rate per 1,000 of the population was 20.10, against 21.46 in 1907. The death-rate of the resident population was 11.22 per 1,000, the lowest recorded during the last ten years. Amongst visitors, in public institutions and in hospital, the deaths were fewer than the average. The general health of the district had been very satisfactory during the year. Mr J. W. Jones said that there was now practically a clean ball of health in the town, at all events, a high state of efficiency prevailedi.-(Hear, hear.) ELECTRICITY WORKS LOSS. Mr A. Rhydwen Jones said the Council were losing at the rate of £ 1,200 a year on the electricity works. A neighbouring authority was offered electricity in bulk at a penny and an eighth. At, anything like that price it would pay the Council to scrap the- machinery at their works, wheire they were turning it, out at 2-fd. a '4 unit, and he asked the C-haarman of the Electricity Committee if he would inquire whether current, at that price could be ob- tained for Rhyl. Mr Frimston, chairman of the Com- mittee, said that, the Council opposed the North Wales Power Companies Bill and succeeded in getting therir district exclud- ed from the scope of the bill. and it would be folly to give their monopoly away in the way of Mr Rhydwen Jones proposed.
