II Walking up towards the North Cliff the other day, the rough and sunken condition of the pathway was very noticeable, and, searching for an ex- planation, I found that the boundary wall has been steadily bulged out- wards, until it now overhangs in the most alarming manner, particularly near the lamp fixed on top of the wall about midway between Sion House boundary and Fairfield, the residence of Mrs Willock. I believe this terribly neglected road is private property, and, if this is the case, the owners should rebuild one portion without delay, or the Borough Surveyor should serve them with notice to do so. Three little children were picking Aild flowers just below it when I re-passed on my way home. Messrs. T. and H. Rees have vastly improved the fields above the Gas- works, known as "The Butts," I think but whoever rents the fields above the old reservoirs from the Tenby Corpora- tion should be given notice to quit. Weeds over two feet high abound in thick clumps; hedges and fences are down; gates and fastenings in a con- dition that no private landlord would tolerate for a moment. The rents must be very low if a tenant can afford to pay it out of a crop of weeds, instead of good grass. Anyhow, a ragged wil- derness, surrounded by down-trodden hedges and fences, is not a pretty sight on town property. » Ought plans of important works or buildings to be constructed or erected in the town to be submitted for public inspection, or is it infra dig. to do so? A proposition made by me at the Coun- cil meeting on Monday last that the plans for the extension of the Culvert on the South Shore should be displayed, so that the man in the street might examine and criticise them was received with shouts of derision by members present. Mr Mayor, I beg to remind you that this is a Harbour Committee meeting," said one. The plans will be accompanied by tenders which are private," said another. The rate- payers sent us here to decide such matters for them," ventured a third. "Yes, and if they don't like what we do they can turn as out," exclaimed a fourth. That's what they ought to do with most of you," was my sarcastic reply. "What next would you like?" was the rejoinder, as ramming on their hats in disgust they hurried from the Council Chamber. # + I wonder what would be the opinion of a majority of the ratepayers on the point. My memory flies back to the time when a former Borough Surveyor propounded a scheme for a floating landing-stage to be placed off the Castle Hill in the position of the present Victoria Pier. A model of the stage was constructed in order to show the members of the Corporation how it would work, and so pleased were they with the idea that the model was placed in a tradesman's window in order that the public might judge what a clever scheme it was. A couple of old trawlers were either actually purchased or were being negotiated for, when the man in the street declared the scheme to be impracticable and quite unsuited for the purpose for which it was intended and in this way Tenby was saved a very considerable public expenditure on what must have proved. useless. # The proper extension of the Culvert is a matter of the very first importance to Tenby. Suggestions, plaus, and rough estimates have been invited from three different firms of engineers. The Town Council have declared their intention to select the best and most economical without fear or favour and to do this careful inspection, thought, and consideration will be necessary. Several members of the Council would be the first to admit that they are not sufficiently acquainted with such work to feel competent to give a decision without advice. What possible objec- tion, therefore, can there be to the display of the plans so that every rate- payer interested may have an opportu- nity of passing his opinion on them to the member or members with whom he may be closely intimate. I think it would be for the public good, and therefore have no hesitation in recom- mending it; and as soon as opportunity occurs I win invite the Town Council to again consider the question. F. B.
