A letter of apology was received from Mr Lunt Griffiths. Mr Bailey Denton wrote that he would visit the town in reference to the difficultias in the sewerage works, and the Town Clerk, in reply to Mr Morris Davies and others, said the visit would be at Mr Bailey Denton's own expense.

A long discussion arose on the reference in the Market Committee's report to the bad state of the market roof and to the necessity of taking immediate steps to consider the question of a new market hall. It was stated that the Sur- veyor was doing all he could to render the roof safe and weather proof, and a long debate was terminated by Mr Miller giving notice to bring the whole question forward at the next meeting, and in the meantime the plans prepared some time ago by the surveyor be on view to the members of the Council. On the motion of the Mayor, the whole Council were elected members of the committee for promoting the Historical Pageant in the Castle, in aid of the centenary fund of Denbigh Infirmary the Mayor in an appropriate speech supporting the project for so good an object as the Infirmary.

Presentation to Mr and Mrs Lee Jones. On Thursday (yesterday), Mr and Mrs Lee Jones, Clwydian Cottage, Denbigh, were the recipients of a handsome wedding present from the members of the Denbigh Town Council. It will be remembered that on Mr Lee Jones' marriage to Miss Hughes, Vale-street, being announced at the Council meeting, a sabscribtion list was opened headed by the Mayor, to present Mr Jones, with a token of the Council. lappreciation of his services as Sanitary Inspector. Mr R Humphreys Roberts, as chairman of the Sanitary Committee acted as treasurer and hon see and the result was the purchase from the establishment of Messrs W Keepfer and Son, jewellers, High-street, of a handsome silver tea service, of the "Georgian," fluted pattern, the tea-pot having an ebony handle. It consisted of tea-pot, sugar bowl, cream jug, and 12 tea-spoons in cape, the whole forming a most elegant present. On the tea-pot is chastely inscribed Presented by Members of the Denbigh Town Council, to Mr Lee Jones, on the occasion of his marriage with Miss Mabel Hughes, Denbigh, Oct., 1006." At the meeting of the Council in committee, the silver service was laid on the table, and much admired by the members of the Council. The Mayor, at the request of Mr Humphreys Roberts and the Council, made the presenta- tion, and in doing so said be thought Mr Humphreys Roberts as the chairman and the one who had carried out the arrangements should have made the presentation. However, he had much pleasure in doing so, and assured Mr Lee Jones that the handsome gift he saw before him was a sincere token of the appre- ciation of the efficient manner in which he had carried out his duties, and the good work he had done in the town as their Sanitary In- spector. One point he wished especially to mention, and that was that the Inspeotor was able to discharge his duties to the satisfaction of the public and to the satisfaction of those whom he had to call upon to carry out sanitary improvements. This was a striking feature in the work of their Inspector, and showed the conciliatory way in which he went about his duties. As a Council they expressed their appreciation of his services, wished him great prosperity and happiness in his married life, and trusted that the service of plate would be- come a heirloom, and be handed down to his succeeding generations (applause). He then formally made the presentation. Mr K Humphreys Roberts, gave details of the subscriptions and the purchase of the ser- vice, and as chairman of the Sanitary Com- toittoo testified to the efficiency and c&re with which Mr Lee Jones carried out his work Alderman James Hughes, as former chairman of the Sanitary Committee, supported the re- marks as to the zeal, efficiency, and ability of the inspector and added that his tact and re- sourcefulness equalled his zeal, for by being tactful he had been able to secure sanitary im- provements, which otherwise would have been r«sisted. Mderman Boaz Jones added his testimony, saying that the Council and borough bad been very fortunate in securing Mr Lee Jones' servioeg. Clertatestified to the harmony that prevailed DetweenThe Inspector and the other corporte Ofticials, and the agreeable way in which he carried out his duties, and joined in wishing bun and Mrs Lee Jones every happiness. Mr Lee Jones in an appropriate and feeling speech returned thllon. He had striven to do his duty but had not the slightest idea that the Council would show their appreciation of his services by that very han<jgotne presentation Havinur made appropriate and graceful allusion to his wife-the daughter of one of our towns- men und tradesmen th&t sli6 appreciated with him tbe great kindness of the coi^cil and joined him in altering sincere thanforfor the j valuable present the Council had made to fheTi i
