The Chairman said before the commencement of the business of the meeting, they had a duty to perform which beoame them as a public body. He was sure everyone present regrettes the passing away of Mr Gladstone and they would all agree that the country had suffered an ir- reparable loss, for by his death they had lost the greatest man of this age. Although the loss had been great, yet the world was the richer today, for the memory of the life so nobly spent in the oause of his country and in the oause of the people to whom he was so devoted. He begged to propose, after that slight tribute to his memory, the following resolution-, -That this Council records its deep sense of the loss the nation has sustained by the death of the Eight Hon. W. E. Gladstone, and that we con- vey to Mrs Gladstone and her family our heart- felt sympathy and oondolenoe with them in their sad bereavement," and added that the Glerk be instructed to forward the resolution to Mrs Gladstone.—Mr W. H. Lloyd seconded the proposition, which was carried in silence. THB SMOKE NUISANCE.

ADOPTION OF THE NOTIFICATION OF DISEASES ACT. Mr W. H. Lloyd, in accordance with notice given, moved that the Council adopt the Infeotious Diseases Notification Act, 1889, and he pointed out the necessity there was for the adoption of the Act in the interest of the public health. Owing to the rapid advance of the town, it was essential that the authority should proteot the health of the town, and the beat means to that end was by the adoption of this particular Aot. The expense that the adoption of the Act would naturally entail, would be amply compensated by the advantage of arresting an epidemic at its inception, whereas, under the present arrangements an epidemic might be raging in the town befor thee Council as a sanitary authority would become aware of it.—Mr H. Hughes, in seoonding the resolution said the adoption of the act should not be barred on a question of expense, but adopted in the interest of human life.—Mr Edward Blane, in supporting the resolution, said it was the third time of asking for the adoption of the act. It was not on account of any want of appreciation of the value of the aot, but that the time was not opportune for the adoption of the aot, that the Council had hitherto rejected it. The Council was now well advanced in the know- ledge of its affairs, and it was now possible to adopt the act-in fact, it was their duty to protect human life, and as a sanitary authority their work was the preservation of the health of the distriot. On those grounds he supported the resolution.—Mr Ellwood asked was it not necessary to rescind the previous motion before passing the present one.—The Chairman said the previous motion was rejected by the Oounoil, consequently there was no resolution on the books to require rescinding.—Mr John Hughes opposed the resolution, and was making some remarks upon the notifying of diseases, and the fees for the same paid to medical practitioners, when. Dr. Kirkpatriok interposed with an explanation.—Mr John Hughes: That man has never been before the electors of this constitu- ency, and therefore he is not entitled to take part in the debates of this Oounoil. Whatever he has to say, should, in my opinion, be submitted in writing. Instead of that, he attends the meetings and takes patt in the debates, and, in fact, seems to have more authority than the members of this Council.- The Chairman: The debate is, Notification Act or not. Kindly stick to the question.—Mr J. Hughes: I move that we do not adopt the aot. —The Chairman That is the same as before; it is not necessary. Vote against it if you like. —Dr. Purdon said he should not vote either way, lest it might appear he did so from personal motives. At the same time, he pointed out the advantages of the act in enabling an authority to arrest an epidemio ia its initial stages, and to trace its source.—The Chairman also strongly advocated its adoption.—The resolution was carried by five votes to four, and it was decided that iho o6 oomo into operation on the 1st of August next.—Dr. Kirkpatriok, at the close of the meeting, expressed his regret that the ex- planation he had desired to make had beeu received in such a spirit. RAILWAY FACILITIES. Mr W. H. Lloyd drew attention to the railway facilities for the travelling public to and from Connah's Quay, up and down the line. It was decided to petition the Railway Company for the stoppage of trains between ten and twelve o'olook in the morning, and between half-past one and four o'olook in the afternoon.
