Jones, John Roberts, with the clerk (Mr. R. H. Roberts), the Medical Officer (Dr. J. M. Hughes), and the surveyors for the Llanrhaiadr and Ruthin Districts (Messrs Ebenezer Evans and William Jones). March 12th. 1897. Gentlemen, I have the honour to present to you my an- nual report upon the sanitary condition of the district during the year ended December 31st, 1896. For registration purposes the whole dis- trict is divided into six sub-districts. These are as follows:- 1st, Ruthin Sub-District, comprising the parishes of Efenechtyd, Ruthin (rural), -Llan- bedr, Llanfwrog, Llanrhydcl and Llanvchan, with a population of 109. 2nd, Gyffylliog Sub District: Nantglyn, Gyffylliog and Clocaenog, population, 1038. 3rd, Llandyrnog Sub District; Llandyrnog, Aberwheeler, Llangwyfan, and Llangynhafal, population 1,478. 4th, Llanrhaiadr Sub District; Llanrhaiadr, and Llanynys, population, 1,981. 5th, Llanelidan Sub District, Llanfair, Llan- elidan and Derwen, population, 2,134. 6th, Llanarmon Sub District; Llanarmon, Llanferres and Llandegla, population, 2,264, The area of the combined districts is 94,619 acres, The population at census 1891 was 9,584 and the estimated population in middle of 1896 was 8,840. As the birth and death rates have not varied to any appreciable extent during the last five years, I have adhered to the population at the last census as the basis of my last calculations. It is true however, that the population is slow- ly decreasing, but there are strong reasons against assuming that the rate of decrease 'between the past census and the next will be the same as the rate of decrease between the last census and the previous one.
