HA WARDEN. THE GLADSTONE FOUNTAIN.—A special meet- "i? f the Hawarden Parish Council was held on Monday to consider the condition of the Glad- stone Fountain. The vice-chairman (Mr. Lamb) presided.-Mr. Green stated that the water at the fountain had been deliberately turned off evidently by some person who knew the position of the stop-cock. The Fountain Sub-Committee felt strongly that somebody had turned the water off without authority.—Eventually, on the proposition of Major Gibson, seconded by Mr. Adkins, it was resolved that the "1- M done by the committee at a cost not exceeding £10. It was also decided to offer a reward lor information leading to the detection of anyone turning the water off, or throwing stones at the fountain. A DEFICIENT WATER SUPPLY.-It is hoped that the directors of the Hawarden and District Waterworks Company are fully aware of the universal dissatisfaction felt at the state of things which prevailed lately. Almost directly the drought set in the supply was (without notices) curtailed; and had it been a long drought no one can say what would have happened. Everyone believes that the supply is not equal to the service; and if this is so it is imperative that so great a scandal shouid terminate. If money can procure a larger supply, the rate of dividend should not be weighed against so obvious a duty. But we can assure those most nearly concerned that the public mind demands satisfaction.— Hawarden Parish Magazine THE SCHOOL BOARD QUESTION.—Commenting on the proposal to put part of Hawarden parish in a School Board district, the Hawarden Parish Magazine says Anyone interested should at once give heed to the proposed order of the County Council, soon to be ratified by the Local Government Board, by which in making the Buckley District into an Urban Council, it appears (unknown to the Council who promoted this) to carry with it the resolu- tion of placing most of Buckley (Ewloe Wood and Ewloe Town) and other parts of Hawarden (Bannel and Pentrobin) under the jurisdiction of the Mold and District School Board. This district has from the first (about 1818) volun- tarily built, repaired, enlarged, and maintained a fine set of schools; and even now is en- gaged in further extensions by the order of the Education Department. Ratepayers will consider whether there will be anything under these circumstances to recompense them for the new School Board rate they would have to pay. Now Buckley can look well after its own concerns; but Buckley and the rest of the parish of Hawarden (except Sealand) have been one district for school purposes from the time that districts were first formed by the Education Department. We, on our part, want to know why this is to be allowed, and that without the slightest sign of any wish for such a change on the part of any of the inhabitants. It would appear that the only way out of this is for the County Council to amend the order which was sent in December, 1895, for confirmation to the Local Government Board, but which-in spite of newspaper reports to the contrary-has never yet been confirmed in London. We say not a word in the abstract either for or against a School Board but this is essentially a matter for the ratepayers to speak and act at once if they desire to keep things as they are.
