I; .^er: There is one by the Park Place, ^aoiic house too, Mr. T. J. Roberta And one by the Anchor, and may I ask, can you find a spot which is not opposite a public house (laughter). Mr. John Roberts protested against the re- marks which were made by Mr Edward Roberts, and asked him to withdraw. Mr. Edward Roberts said he would not. Mr. John Roberts remarked that Mr. Edw. Robeits had said that the dead set was being made against strangers who came into the town. Persiiually he had no interest whatever ia the matter. He taoughu the putting up of these advertisements on lamp posts was an in- novation, which would not be tolerated. Mr. Rouw said he quite agreed with what Mr. John Roberts had said, and thought that the remarks made hy Mr. Edward Roberts were very unfair. He considered this a very hard precedent, and for an Alderman to come to the Council and say such a thing, simply because he was an Alderman, was a shame, and Mr. Edward Roberts should withdraw the state- ment which he had made. Mr. Byford said it appeared to him that there was some sort of under hand current against strangers who came to Ruthin. The Council should do everything possible to encourage strangers, and not boycott them as soon as they came into the town. Mr. Tickle would no doubt remove the sign-board near the Castle Hotel if be was asked to do so. Mr. R. P. Davies thought that Mr. Tegid Owen was the one to complain against the sign. board in question. Mr. Tegid Owen I don't see that this par- ticular sign-board should be removed, more than the one near the Anchor, for instance. Mr. Rouw suggested that the sum ot 2s. 6d. annually be charged for each sign board. Mr. Byford: I thought Mr. Councillor Rouw, that you objected to the placing of boards on lamp-posts altogether ? Mr. Rouw: I do object entirely, but this is my business. Mr. R. P. Davies proposed that a shilling for each board be charged, Mr. E. T. Hughes proposed 2s. Mr. John Roberts And payable in advance. The Mayor suggested 5s. a year for the three boards. Mr. Rouw For each. Mr. Joseph Davies seconded the Mayor's pro- posal. Six voted in favour of the 5s. for the whole of the boards, and three against, and the Mayor's proposal was carried. THE DISTRICT NURSING ASSOCIATION. The Mayor said he had received a letter applying for the use of the Assembly rooms on the 24th inst, in connection with the Jumble Sale, to be held for the benefit of the Nursing Association. Mr. Edward Roberts proposed that it be granted free of charge, and the same was agreed to.
