CARDIGANSHIRE MAIN ROADS COMMITTEE QUARTERLY MEETING. The quarterly meeting of the above committee was held at the Porth Hotel, Llandyssul, on Wednesday. Mr. Thomas Evans, Llwyndurus, Llechryd, was ap- pointed chairman for the ensuing year. The contract for the improvement of the road from Cardigan to Cenarth involving an expenditure of some thousands of pounds, was adjourned on the recommendation of the Roads Board and the Local Government Act. The Cardigan Town Council wrote asking the County Council to repay to them the whole amount of the expenditure by them upon the roads within the borough instead of giving a grant as heretofore. The matter was referred to the County Council with a recommendation to invite the members of the Cardigan Town Council to a conference. AN UNUSUAL CLAIM. The following is a copy of a letter received flGn Mr. Roy Evans, solicitor, Newcastle-Lmlyn^ Major Griffiths, of Llwyndurus, has coil: ul-ed mb with reference to a trespass committed en his pro- perty, and which was done under your ins.iuctions by a roadman (Richard Evans, of Ty'rddol, (. < ;rti:>. It appears that Miss Bowen, of Berllan. l^ontly trimmed her hedge and deposited the trash on the opposite side of the road, on land the property of my client. The same was removed back by my client's servants to that side of the main road along which Miss Bowen"s hedge runs, but she again re-deposited it on Major Griffith's property, and gave as her explanation that Richard Evans had informed her that the freehold of the highway was vested in the County Council, and that you stated so. Of course, such is not the case, and neither the County Council nor any other person other than the owner has the right to deposit the trash where it was placed by Miss Bowen, as the freehold of the highway is vested to the centre of the road in the owner of the adjoin- ing lands. I have therefore to request that iJle same be removed within seven days or legal pro- ceedings will follow." The Clerk said the matter had nothing to do with the County Council, and no notice was taken of the communication. s REFUSED. There was also a request from Major Griffith to erect a wall near Ddol Cottage, Llwyndurus, so as to form an enclosed space in front of the house for the safety of children. The cottfcge had been built in line with the inside of the road fence. There was a little green turf on the other side and Major. Griffith wanted to widen the road there. A sketch was produced of the proposed alteration, after perusal of which the Rev. T. Arthur Thomas, Llan- dyssul, proposed that permission be refused as would only lead to a dead end. This was carried without discussion.
