Williams, Colonel O. J. Ll. Evans, and Mr. Greaves. The Deputy Chairman, in moving the appointment, expressed regret that, owing to indisposition, Captain Wynn Griffith and Sir Llewelyn Turner would not be nomina- ted, as they had been most able and attentive in the discharge of their duties, which had extended over many years (hear, hear). On the application of Mr. Samuel Moss, M.P., the appeals against the assessment of certain rates in four parishes in the Llan- rwst Union were further respited, it being stated that the matters had been referred to arbitration.
