I STERILISATION OF BOTTLES NORTH WALES SANITARY INSPECTORS' ASSOCIATION. MEETING AT LLANDUDNO. A sessional meeting of the Sanitary Inspec- tors' Association, North Wales centre, was held on Saturday afternoon at the Town Hall, Llandudno. Mr W. Littite, Sanitary Inspector;, Llandudno. vice chairman, presided in the ab- sence of the chairman Mir R. H. Parry. The Executive Committee recommended, that for the future the chairman should be elected for one year, and that he should be eligible for re-elec- tion for one additional year only. They further recommended that, iin ordter to stimulate in- terest iin the meetings, an occasional paper should be presented in Welsh, and Mr R. H. Parry was invited to prepare the first of such papers. Mr WiHiiiam Jones, M.P., was re-elected president, and Mr W. Little was elected chair- man for the ensuiing year. Mr E. Roberts (Car- narvon) was elected vce chairman. The next meeting will be at Bangoir. Dr. G. Lewis Travis read! a .short paper on the sterilisation of bottles at Llandudno, based on a report by the dhairman. In April, 1909, owing to the large number of bottles conveyed amongst the house refuse to the destructor, which bottles the owners were aliiiowed to re- move in anything but a citeanly condition, the Llandudno Health Committee decided, to de- stroy all the bottles unless they were sterilised before being removed from the destructor. The Committee put down a sterilising tank, and ordered that all bottles should; be boiled for twenty minutes before beting taketn from the premises. The tank cosit £10, and the charge now made upon the owners of the bottles for the cost of steriC-isation was 2d. pew dozen. The bottles were placed -in the tank, which was then filled with cold waiter. The water was gradually raised to boiling point, so that there were few breakages. Up to the. end' of June 2.667 dozen bottles had been treated in this way, or about a quarter of the number of bot- tles passing through the Llandudno bottlers' exchange during the same periiod. After steril- isation the bottles were as clean as when new, and while before the adoption of this system dirty bottles were rather frequently brought to the health department by visitors and1, others, since its intmducton there had not been any cotmplajiints at all." It would be a step in the right direction if the Bottlers' Association, at thqlr depot in Llandudno, would fix up a sterilising plant of their own, and treat all bottles passing through the exchange before they were returned to tlhelir owners. The fashion of washing bottles at the stores was far from perfection. The Chairman handed round a specimen bottle of beer brought to the, health department by a visitor before the sterilisation plant came into operation. The liquid had a heavy sedi- ment, Last year, he said, the Bottlers' Asso- ciation paid the Council e20, but the charge was then 3d. a dozen. A discussion followed upon the proposal that a qualified inspector of daiTiilelS and cowisheds ought to be appointed for each county, in order that a uniform, system might be adopted for the prevention of milk pollution. It was decided to pass a irecoliution expressing the sense of the branch on the matter at the next meeting. A TOMATO TIN TRICK. The Charman showed the meeting two tins of preserved tomatoes, one in the state in which it would be safe to buy it, and the other with the cylinder heads bulging out owing to the fermerttive gases formed within. He said that it was the practice of dishonest trades- people to turn down a portion of the label pasted round the tins which were in that state, to perforate the tins and let out the gas, so enabling tihe hea-cls to flatten again, and then to sell the article to the next unsuspicious cus- tomer. That was a criminal trick which it was necessary to be on one's guard against, by not on',y seeing that the ends of the can were pro- perly concave but that the label had not been tampered with.
