PEXBEDW TOWNSHIP, The Cle'k reported that ho hid received fiom the Local Government Board a return to be filled in with regard to the expenditure of the township of Penbedw.—Th6 return ho had made was nil. BAGILLT WATER—"A STOPPAGE." The Clerk read a letter from the Local Government Board which stated in effect that they were not prepared to sanction the borrowing of the money for the carrying out of the Bagillt Water supply. The letter also stated that tho Board would require that the conditions mentioned in their previous letter of January 17th must be observtd before thoy could give their sanction to the borrowing of the further loan.—The Chairman said that if this were done, it would involve them in an expenditure of about X1500. The work that had been already done cost something like £ 700, and would have to be done over again. At Bagillt they were anxious to have a drainage scheme costing from £ 4000 to 16000, and where would the rates be then ? He thought it was bad enough for the Local Government Board to nulify the effects of gentlemen who had given their time for the benefit of the locality for nothing. What had been done was on the recommendation of the Medical Officer, and a great deal of trouble had been gone to to obtain a good supply of water, and now they had found one, it was a shame the Local Government Board did not support them.—Upon the pro- position of Mr H. T. Barker, seconded by Mr W. H. Lloyd it was decided to ask the Local Government Board to reconsider their decision. —The Clerk said if this did not succeed a deputation should be sent to the Local Govern- ment Board, THE HALENDY CULVERT.

TIIE DIVISION OF THE RURAL DISTRICT. A draft of the petition of the Mold Parish Council, to the County Council, to divide the Holywell Rural District Council into two parts, one to meet at Mold and the other at Holywell was considered -The Clerk said an enquiry would be held, and it was for the Council to decide the steps to be taken with regard to a represetativo attending the enquiry.—The Clerk said he did not wit-h to conduct the matter himself, but he would point out that tho Mold Committee already had power over tho sanitary matters —The Chairman said that he thought if the Clerk went over to the Mold meeting every month, it would be sufficient.- The Cleik pointed out that the memorial had not eminatod from the councillors who represntod th district on that Council. The memorial stated that sanitary matters in the Mold district were quite unattended to, which was incorrect; a9 all sanitary matters were submitted by the Inspector to the Mold Committee before they came to that Council.—On the proposition of Mr Leaning, seconded by Mr E. Hughes. it was decided to oppose the application of the Mold Parish Council, and the Clerk was appointed to represent the Council at the meeting. RESIGNATION OF MRS. RILLLIPS, RIIUAL. Mrs Philips, Iihual, wrote stating that she would not be able to attend the meetings of the Council for the future, as she was leaving tho nel,-hbourhood.-Tho Clerk said he did not know whether the letter was to bo considered as a resignation, as no member of the Council could resign without the permission of the Local Government Board. He would enquire whether Mrs Philips wished to resign or not. —Mr Batters said Mrs Philips could absent herself from the Council for six months, and then she would cease to be a member. DR. BRUCE LOWE'S REPORT.

(delivered at the Workhouse or stored in his own warehouse at Bagill.) The tender was accepted.—Mr Petrie complained of the oxhorbitant price the Council had to pay for its disenfoctants. He did not think it was fair to the largo ratepayers to be getting a barrow-full of stuff here and there, and having little bills always cropping up.—Mr Batters supported, and said he quite agreed with Mr Petrie.-The Chairman said that if the Council had a store as suggested by Mr Petrie, and wanted a small quantity of things at Mynnongroew or a long distance"off, the cartage would cost a great deal.—Mr Petne There is also another thing I noticed a pound or two of cement at ijd. a pound. It was ridiculous J^d. a pound -was £ 14 a ton wherean it could be got anywhore for 44a delivered fr'.e to Holywell stat Batters: It is ridiculous; and how they expect large ratepayers t1 stand t. f don t ku w, DVFAPN liVWVH, WELL.

Thomas said that in considering the creed of the children, he supposed that there would be no distinction made only Catholic and Protestant," and not "Methodist," "Baptist," "Wesleyan," and all that.—Mr Batters said he did not think that Mr Thomas could say all those were the same. —The Clerk thought that as near as possible the children should be put with people of the same persuasion as the children's parents were, and in the case of orphans especially so.—The question of remuneration arising it was decided that the children should be paid for at the rate of 3s. a. week, and S I allowed for clothing.
