The Joint Committee of the County Council and Urban Council met on Monday last, to endeavour to settle the claim made by the Urban Council of Bala for improving High Street. The Committee appointed by the County Council were:—Hon. C. H. Wynne, Rug; Messrs. W. Davies, Cae'rblaidd; and Haydn Jones, Towyn. The Committee ap- pointed by the Urban Council consisted of the Chairman (Mr. R. Ll. Jones), Mr. R. W. Ro- berts (Vice-chairman), and Mr. David Jones (Birmingham House). The Clerk of the County Council (Mr. R. Jones), and the Clerk of the Urban Council (Mr. J. R. Jones), were also in attendance. The amount claimed was £ 794. An offer was made by the representatives of the County Council. The Urban Council met to consider it, and refused it. The Urban Council made an offer to accept a certain sum in full discharge of claim but the representa- tives of the other side did not decide anything, further than to submit it to the County Coun- cil. The matter will, it is conjectured, have to be decided by arbitration. LITERARY AND MUSICAL MEETING AT TY'NYBONT.
