The question brought forward by Mr R P Morgan in regard to the poor rates at the last meeting was one worthy of the attention of the whole ratepayers in the parish.—Mr D 0 Jones said that the sug- gestion of Mr S Edmunds with reference to a marine lake to the north of the town was totally impracticable. It had cost the place thousands of pounds to jemove water from the marsh. One great improvement necessary was to establish a staple industry in the district. They had one industry-the enamel works. He believed the quarries in the district could be re-opened. Instead of making a marine lake to the north of the town, he suggested that willow trees should be planted and a basket-making industry established.—Mr W H Edwards, Mr W A Evans, and Mr R R Roberts continued the discussion.- Mr D A Hughes (chemist) remarked that more light was required near the promenade, and a new shelter or two.—The readers of papers having replied to the criticism, the President said that the remark made by Mr W A Evans had struck him very forcibly. He believed it would be to the advantage of the town, morally and temporally, to provide a suitable place for the young people to spend their time of an evening (loud applause). The President concluded by moving a vote of thanks to Messrs Edmunds, Morgan, and Mason.—Mrs Stealey seconded the proposition, which was carried unanimously.
