BOARD OF HEALTH MEETING. This was an adjourned meeting of the Board for the purpose of receiving tenders from the various contractors, subject to the revision of the Engineer's plans and specifications, for the new Waterworks. The following gentlemen were present -George Cansick, Esq., in the chair. Alderman John Wil- liams. Councillors :—John Morris, John Prothero, John Griffiths, John Davies, Phillip Bright, Lewis Hughes, Thomas Trew, and William De Winton, 9 Esq. S. B. Evans, Esq., Town Clerk. After a. long discussion on the subject, the Engi- neer informed the Board that the three lowest tenders were Jordan, Guest and Crymes, and Hargest. Mr. Prothero moved, and Mr. Trew seconded, that these three tenders be accepted, providing they complied with all the necessary requirements, by giving satisfactory security, &c., as specified in the Engineer's specifications. Hargest, who was called in, said that he thought he could give them satisfactory security in the evening. The meeting was accordingly adjourned for that purpose. The Board re-assembled at half-past seven o'clock, all being present excepting the Town Clerk, who was unable to attend. The Mayor informed the Board that Hargest had been with him, and said that the report had gone abroad that he had contracted so far below the value that he could not get anyone to join him, but that he offered to place writings of house property in the hands of the Board, free from any encum- berance, worth an annual rent of -935 18s., which would be more than required by the specifications, it was X400 that was required by them, and the security offered by Hargest was nearly double. The Engineer, in reply to the Board, said that he had not the slightest doubt whatever that Hargest would not fully and effectually complete the work for the amount he had sent in, he being a thorough working man himself, that he would be able to clear easily X200 or X-300 by the works. The Board then again adjourned for another week for the'purpose of having the opinion of the Town Clerk as to whether the security offered by Hargest cculd be accepted or not.
