URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. APPOINTMENT OF SANITARY INSPECTOR. A special m..etin of this Council was held on Monday, to appoint an Inspector of Nui- sances. Mr. Abel Jones, J.P., presided, the other Councillors present being Messrs. Jos. Williams (vice chairman), S. Perks, J P., P. Mostyn Williams, Robert Jones, David Griffiths, John Bayliss, H. A. Tilby, Daniel Evans, Joseph Williams (Gas), A. Maltby, R. Jolley, A. L Clews, Dr. Pritchard, and Captain Keatinge, J.P., together with Messrs. A. Rowlands (clerk), Robt. Hughes (surveyor), and L. G. Hall (Gas and Water Manager). The four selected candidates appeared before the Council, namely Messrs. Robert John Hughes, Birkenhdad W. H. Jones. Colwyn Bay; Robert Lowe, St. Helens, and James Allen Short, Wigan. Each were ques- tioned as to their experience both in their present and previous situations, as to their knowledge of practical work, and also as to the control they bad over workmen. After the candidates had retired, Mr. S. Perks proposed that Mr. Short be be appointed, on the ground that he bad had a wider experience than the others-an ex- perience extending over ten years. Captain Keatinge said he would vote for Mr. Hughes, of Birkenhead, because he felt he was equal to Mr. Short in every respect. In fact as to their ability he saw no differ- ence, and all things being equal, they should give the preference to a man knowing the Welsh language, as the workmen were Welshmen. Mr. Joseph Williams (Gas), supported Mr. Hughes as a practical man. Dr. Pritchard supported the appointment of Mr. Short on the ground that he had had more experience in the work they required him for. Mr. Jolley, Mr. Maltby, and the chairman supported Mr. Hughes, the latter observing that there would be more harmony among the men .under a man who could give in- structions in their own language. Mr. Perks asked why English candidates were invited to apply if Welshmen were to be appointed. Mr. Clews said that the language of a man should not be considered, but the ability of the man. He supported Mr. Hughes. Upon the names being submitted to the meeting, 12 voted for Mr. Hughes, and the chairman put it to the members whether it would not be better to make the appoint- ment unanimously. This was agreed to, and on the motion of Mr. Joseph Williams (Gas), Mr. Hughes was elected. Mr. Hughes was then called into the room, and informed of the decision. The newly appointed officer thanked the Council for the confidence they had reposed in him, and said he would always consider the interest of Rhyl as a health resort.
