HELSBY. PAROCHIAL COMMITTEE.—A meeting of this body was held in the schoolroom on Monday. Present: Mr. James Taylor (chairman), Dr. Briant, Messrs. Jas. White, J. Potts, J. Bran- dreth, T. Ellams, W. E. Davies, F. Wright, G. Ellams, G. C. Taylor, Ashton (clerk), Diggle (surveyor), and Farrington (nuisance inspector). —The Surveyor reported that necessary altera- tions had been carried out to the sewer at the top of the Robin Hood Lane.—Mr. Brandreth asked if the men's time for this work was being charged to the Helsby or the District Council, and Mr. Diggle explained that it wouid be divided as far as possible. The Nuisance Inspector reported that he had, as instructed, obtained samples of the water from Mr. Littler's pump and well, and from Ebenezer Terrace, for analysis, and that these were at present in the hands of the analyst. He had visited the township houses, the houses occupied by Mr. J. Garner, Mrs. F. Bate, and J. Garner, junr., and the ashpits on Mr. Guest's property, as to which complaints had been made, but if they were kept in their present condition he did not see any reason for com- plaint. With regard, however, to the sewage water running on to the high road from the house occupied by Mrs. Farish, this he said was a nuisance, and still existed. Although he had written requesting that it be abated^ nothing had been done.—It was decided that the inspector should again write requesting that the nuisance be at once abated, and if no notice was then taken, he was to enforce the A ct.-Mr. Farringdon also reported having informed the landlord of Bank Villa that the water in use there had been analysed and found unfit for domestic purposes. He had recommended that the Water Company's supply should be put in, but no notice had been taken of this. The Council, however, decided that as the present tenant was leaving in a month, the matter should stand over to see if any steps were taken when the house was newly tenanted.—The In- spector stated that Mr. Wilkinson, the landlord of of cottages (Ivy-row) in Rake-lane had removed certain nuisances, and as the village pump, from which the occupiers were supplied with water, had run dry, he was willing to put the water company's water in when the District Council's permission was granted to open the road.—Mr. Farringdon had written to the owners of certain property in Collier-square, recommending alterations which would remove existing nuisances, but no notice had been taken of his letter, and he asked the Council's permission to serve an official notice thereon.—On the proposition of Mr. White, who said the nuis- ance was a very bad one, and injurious to health, seconded by Mr. Potts, it was resolved that this should be done. The Inspector also asked the Council to instruct the surveyor to effect certain alterations in the drain connected with the tank in the Athletic Club's field, and also to have the tank cleaned out oftener—at least once a month. This the Council decided to do.—Mr. Ashton read a letter from the Helsby and District Water Company, I aauressea to tne District Council, in which they requested that the scale of charges sub- mitted by them should be passed, also asking that the Council would grant them wayleaves over the roads under their control. Letters I were also read from the Water Company's solicitors and from the Local Government Board to them upon the same matter.—The Clerk explained that the District Council had referred the scale of charges to the Parochial Committee for consideration, and that on their recom- mendation they would be laid before the Local Government Board for their approval.—After some discussion it was proposed by Mr. G. C. Taylor, seconded by Mr. Brandreth, and carried that the District Council should recommend the Local Government Board to adopt the same scale of charges for Helsby as in use by the Frodsham Lordship, except that cottages assessed at £ 8 and under should be charged at the rate of twopence per week, and that the District Council should grant the Water Com- pany the necessary wayleaves over the roads under their control
