Vaynor and Penderyn District Council. The monthly meeting of thjs Council was held at the Merthyr Workhouse last Thursday, Mr. D. Evans presiding. The other members present were:—Mr. Joseph Price, Mr. Ll. Bowen, and the Rev. Matthew Davies; also Mr. F. T. James (clerk), Mr. R. C. Jenkins ¡ (surveyor), and Dr. T. J. Webster (medical officer of health). On the motion of the Rev. J- Hathren Davies, Dr. Webster was unanimously re-appointed Medical Officer of Health for the Council area. A letter was read from the Local Government Board, in reply to a petition forwarded from the Council to apply that Mr. John Burns would make a grant from the special unemployed fund, in order to carry out the work of improving the pathways at Cefn Coed, thereby giving work to a number of the unemployed of the village Mr. Burns replied that he could not accede to ihe request of the Council, as by the Act no grant could be made to rural councils. The scheme of the Council will therefore be aban- doned. A long discussion followed the reading of a letter from the Traction Co., in which they asked that the term of constructing the Cefn extension be extended until to 16th of May, 1912. This was acceded to, on condition that the Company place wood-blocks on such por- tions of the streets of Cefn as will be indicated by the Council. The other point asked for by the Traction Company was permission to aban- don that portion of the proposed extension that lies between the Rising Suu and the Morning Star. This was unanimously refused by the Council for several reasons. A long letter was received from the Clerk to the Vaynor Parish Council, pointing out several cases in which the sanitation of the village was not properly attended to.—The Surveyor was instructed to attend to this matter. The following scavenging tenders were accepted:—Penderyn, Mrs. Jane Jones, Tre- banog Fach; Hirwain, Mr. W. J. Darbin, Bodwigiad Arms, at f30 a year; Pontsticyll, Mrs. Simons, Cwm, at E4 15s. a year. A notice was received from the Local Govern- ment Board to the effect that a:i enquiry would be held at Cefn, on a date to be fixed again, with reference to the proposed sewerage works.— The Rev. J. Hathren Davies said that in face of these continual enquiries, and especially when is was considered that each enquiry meant changes in the plans, incurring an additional ,,e expenditure of £ 1,000, he was going to propose that the wholo scheme be abandoned, and that the onus of undertaking the work be thrown on the Local Government Board.—Mr. T. B. Greatorex said he was prepared to second this, but the matter was deferred pending the inquiry. The following precepts were made :—Vaynor, special expenses, 1:210; Penderyn, 1232 General, sanitary, £ 400; highway, £400. The sanitary expenses included a sum of £272, for the maintenance of patients at the Isolation Hospital, Merthyr. Several members suggested that a small hospital in the place would mean less expense to the parish.
