A letter from the Tramway Company was read, as to the Board entering into an agreement with them for the repair of the roads within the district. Mr D. Evans proposed that they consider the matter before they reply thereto. This was agreed to. A letter was also read from Mr Osborne Shepherd, asking that the Penrhiwgwynt road be taken over by the Board. Mr D. Evans proposed, and Mr Havard seconded, that Mr Jones, the surveyor, consider the matter. Carried. The Chairman reported the result of the election, of which he was returning officer, and said that the papers, which were on the table, were now officially delivered to the Board. The Medical Officer of Health (Dr James) reported that during the past month there had been 111 deaths, { 57 being infants under five. During the same period the births had been—males, 136 females, 123 total, 259. These figures gave a death and birth rate res- pectively'of 14*76 and 47-16. Twenty four deaths were due to chest diseases, and there had been three deaths of typhoid fever, 2 of which were in Gwendo- line Street, Treherbert. There were farther suspicions cases there. He also called attention to the sanitary state of some dwellings in that neighbourhood. There had been four deaths from scarlatina,six from phthisis, five had been certified by the coroner's court' Mr W. H. Mathias presented the report of the finance committee, which showed that the balance in the bank before that day's cheques amounted to £ 5,136 128 6d, and bills had been passed that day fcr £ 1,096 13s 7d. The Sarveyor (Mr J. W. Jones) read the reports of the inspectors of nuisances. Mr John Evans, No. I district (Treherbert), reported two cases of typhoid at Blaenyowm, one of which had terminated fatally. There were no fresh cases. In regard to certain nuisances at Peatre, Mr Havard was of opinion that the inspectors were too lenient. People ought not to be trifled with in matters like this. Mr D. Evans feared that the inspectors did allow too long a time to elapse before putting the penalties into force after notice. Mr. D. W. Davies agreed. In No. 2 district there had been two fresh cases of typhoid, being a decrease of two as compared with last month. There were three cases of aearlet fever. Mr. J. Jones, leather merchant, Tonypandy, had erected a shed without submitting plans. The Chairman feared that Tonypandy people were too apt te do that sort of thing. It was decided to give Mr. Jones notice to remove the shed. Mr. W. Davies, No. 3 district, was not aware of any cases of fever in his district. The Snrveyor read a letter which he had received from the Secretary to the Ferndale Gas Company asking either that the gas supplied to the Bray's lamp in Fernhale be measured by meter, or paid for as three lamps. Mr. D. W. Davies said it was mean to ask such a thing. Mr. D. Evans concurred. On the motion of Mr Havard, seconded by Mr. D. W. Davies, the Surveyor was directed to try to get the lamp placed on the same footing as other lamps. The Deputy Clerk (Mr. S. Ridge) read a letter from the Jarrow Corporation asking the Board to join in petitioning the Government to insert a clause in the new Local Government Bill making ground rents and royalties rateable for local rates. It the course of a brief conversation, it was pointed out that this was an important matter, as a sum of at least f 150,000 was paid in ground rents annually in this district. OR the motion of Mr. D. Evans, the Chairman was empowered to attach the seal of the. Boa"d to the petition to be forwarded to the Government. j' Bsssasas (I IIJ Î'll'IJå"
