HELSBY. PAROCHIAL COMMITTEE MxwrrNG.-A meeting of the Parochial Committee was held in the National Schoolroom on Monday evening. Mr. James Taylor was in the chair, and the attendance included Messrs. W. E. Davies, W. Musgrove, J. T. Collier, W. Davies, W. Griffiths, Jas. White, W. Diggle (surveyor), and H. War- burton (deputy clerk). A letter from Messrs. H. Bancroft and Son was read, complaining of what they considered the unfair treatment they had received in regard to the rejection of their sewerage scheme, and contending that they should have been given an opportunity to meet the criticism and condemnation of it by the sur- veyor before it was rejected by the committee, which they understood they were to have had. The sub-committee's report regarding a site for the purification beds was read, also letters from owners of land, and from the engineer as to its suitability.—The Surveyor reported that he had inspected the sites, and it was decided that the surveyor should further communicate with the engineer regarding it, and that the sub committee should be empowered, on receipt of Mr. Radford's reply, to negotiate for the purchase of land.—Mr. Collier asked for full particulars of the engineer's terms for the carrying out of the scheme, and it was decided that the Clerk furnish 'these at the next meeting. The advisability of acquiring the Helsby and District Water Company was again brought forward; but, after some discussion, the question was adjourned pending the engineer's furnishing particulars as to the quantity of water that will be required for the purpose of flushing in connection with the new scheme. During the discussion the chair was taken by Mr. James White, Mr. Taylor, as a director of the Water Company, preferring not to occupy the position while the matter was under consideration. The Surveyor presented plans of cottages to be erected by Mr. Thornely, which were passed subject to their being in accordance with the local bye-laws.—The Surveyor reported that Mr. Thornely had asked that the ditches on his land should be cleaned out, and it was decided after discussion that this should be done.
