The Clerk stated that at its previous meeting the Council passed a resolution with regard to proceed- ins being taken under the Fertilizers and Feeding Stuffs Act, 1906, without first obtaining1 the sanction of the Board of Agricuiture.That body had written to say that it had no power to give a general con- sent. The consent of the Board must be given for everv orosecution. He (the clerk) had seen the Board's' inspector, who had stated that he would be happv to confer with any member of the Council or any farmer who experienced any difficulty with regard to the proceedings. Mr. Robert Ellis—So we have to ask the consent Iz of London, if you please. The Clerk—Yes. Mr. Ellis-Very nice. NURSING ASSOCIATION. An application from Lady Evans, Lovesgrove, president of the Aberystwyth and Llanbadarn Nursing Association, for a grant for the training of midwives or nurse midwives, was referred to the Iv" Finance Committee. OPPOSITION TO A PROPOSED NEW SCHOOL. It having been proposed to build a new school at Gartheli. a protest against it came from the parish meeting of Bettws Leiky, and the protest was referred to the Education Committee. SHEEP DIPPING. The Clerk announced, amidst applaure, that he had received a letter from the Board of Agriculture expressing its satisfaction with the way in which double dipping of sheep had been carried out in that county. POLLING STATIONS. The Finance Committee were requested to con- sider an application from Scyborycoed Parish Coun- ciL to locate a rolling station at Eglwysfach. in the Taliesin Electoral Division. At the same time the committee are to consider a motion of Mr. Jenkm Davies. that the parish of Llandisilio-gogo be gran- ted two oolling stations for election purposes in- stead of one as at present, as many electors from the remote parts of the parish complained of the long distance they had to travel to the existing station. THE NEW MAIN ROAD. The Council agreed to a provisional order de- claring the highway leading from the Plough and Harrow to Llanon Village a main road. ROADS AND BRIDGES COMMITTEE'S REPORTS. The chief items in the report of the Main Roads, Bridges, and Public Buildings Committee for the northern division were the following:— ROAD BOARD CONFERENCES. The Clerk read a communication from the Road Board which was remitted by the Council to this Committee suggesting that conferences should be held between the county and highway surveyors to formulate schemes for application to the Road Board. It was resolved to request the Surveyor, afther the meeting of the Main Roads Committee for the lower division in conjunction with the Sur- veyor for that division to convene the conference and to prepare all necessary schemes and applica- tions for grants to tho Road Board. A NEW ROAD. The Clerk read a communication from the Mont- gomeryshire County Council and the Merioneth- shire County Council in support of the application of the Road Board for a grant towards the con- struction of the proposed road from Pennal to the wharf known as Quay Ward on the river Dovey. It was resolved to recommend the Council to sup- port tho application. ELECTRIC CABLES. A letter was read from the Chiswick Electricity Supply Corporation applying for permission to lay electric cables in Llanbadarn Road, Aberystwyth. It was resolved that the application be granted upon tho Corporation paying to the Council the annual sum of 2s. 6d., the work to be carried out, and the surface of the road restored to the satisfaction of the County Surveyor. FIGURE FOUR BRIDGE. Mr. Thomas E. Owen, surveyor, reported: Mr. Richard Jones, the owner of the land on the south side of this bridge, objects to granting land for the suggested widening, affirming that the present structure has not sufficient water way and that during heavy floods the water causes considerable damage to his field, and that there is danger of the surrounding embankment being destroyed. Mr. Jones offers free of charge whatever quantity of his land is necessary for the erection of a new bridge, on condition that the span is sufficiently lengthened to do away with his grievance. I am informed that the small bridge, which was built to relievo the pressure on the larger one, was partly demo- lished in 1886 owing to their incapacity. This appears to be a scheme, worthy of the support of the Roads Board, to whom a strong application should be made. Probably, however, an application for an entirely new bridge would be the most successful. COMPLETION OF BRIDGES. The following bridges, viz., Pendre, Efel y Gof, and Glanrhvd, in the neighbourhood of Llanfi- hangel-v-Creuddyfn, and Cefncoed bridge near Gngman, having been completed in accordance with the plans and specifications, I beg to certify same for payment. ROCMAC. In compliance with your instructions I visited Neath and Swansea to inspect the laying of rocmac. I find it makes excellent roads, which give good foothold for hores in all weathers. Trials have been made on roads having the heaviest traffic, with good results. Very favourable reports have been received from the Borough Engineers of Hali- fax, Leeds, and Helensborough. It i4 a chemical solution, a matrix of which is formed by mixing it with limestone dust. This should be laid on a pro- perly formed surface, upon which granite is to be evenly spread, and rolled, until the matrix comes to the top and seals the whole. When set, it be- comes perfectly waterproof, consequently very little dust or mud is formed, and scavenging is reduced to a minimum. It is claimed that the durability of roads treated with rocmac is more than doubled, whilst it can be laid with equally good results at all seasons. Rocmac costs lOd. per gallon, and half a gallon is required to every superficial yard of 3in. thickness.
