COMMITTEE MEETINGS. Committee meetings of the above were held in the Council Chamber on Monday last. The Mayor took the chair promptly at three p.m. and business commenced in the presence of a goodly number of Councillors. The Town Clerk produced a letter from the G.W.R. officials stating that the Council's com- plaint about the condition of the road leading to the Golf Links, also the lighting of the path- way to the Greenhill, was receiving attention. Mr Moss Flowers wrote asking that he should be supplied with a copy of Mr Chatterton's re- port on the extension of the Culvert scheme, also Mr Alford's remarks on same and after some discussion the Town Clerk was instructed to reply that the originals could be inspected at his office, or the Council would raise no objec- tion to Mr Alford supplying the copies asked for. The attention of the Council was drawn to the bad condition of St. Domingo Place, and this was followed by comments on the state of High Street. The Borough Surveyor was instructed to see what he could do to improve matters. It was agreed to extinguish the gas lamp over the entrance gates to Croft House, and substi- tute a lamp at the top of St. John's Hill, where more light is required. An application from Mr T. Morris for an allowance in the arrears of rent due from him for the old Fish Market was refused. Mr Morris complained that although he only paid £4 per annum rent, the place had been assessed at £8 until recently, when he had got it reduced to £5. The Town Clerk asked the approval of the Council to a letter he had written the Local Government Board inquiring what section of the Act demanded that the sanction of the Board should be obtained before the Town Council could demolish the cottages in South Parade for road improvement, as the land was neither sold, mortgaged, nor alienated. The first letter of the Local Government Board was read over, and after some consideration the Town Clerk's letter was unanimously approved. It was agreed that the store shed on the Pier should be painted forthwith, and tenders for the work be invited. A letter from the Harbour Master reported that the extra hand engaged on the Victoria Pier for the season had been discharged on the usual date also that the structure required painting. Several members considered that more painting should have been carried out by the attendants in their spare time, and it was agreed unanimously to ask the Harbour Master to report in detail his opinion of the best and most economical way to get the required paint- ing done. In reply to a query put to him, the Town Clerk stated that the necessary deeds in con- nection with the Old Baths property were in hand, and he hoped to get them completed soon. He was afraid the solicitors on the other side would not agree to pay any of the arrears of rent due to the Town Council under the com- promise until the deeds were duly executed. The Medical Officer of Health sent in samples of leaflets which he advised should be sent to milk dealers, farmers, and housekeepers with a view to securing a pure supply of milk in the town. The leaflets were handed round, and it was resolved to carry out the recommendation of the Medical Officer, the obtaining and dis- tributing of the leaflets to be carried out under the supervision of the Town Clerk.
