Painting is required also to woodwork and tronglllng outside esptcially, though inside as weil should be dnne. lhere is no economy in letting a building go to the bad from wwit of timely rep iirs. These matters appear to have been referred to the Building Committee as long ago as February last. I was surprised to find I the vagranc wards not yet occupied. I do hope the Guardians will njw see that the contractor finishes off. Locks, etc., are wanted on the doors and the requisite furniture should be obtained. The beds should be the small iron vagrant beds now supplied for the special purpose and besides five for the cells, four more should be cbtaiued for the associated ward for surplus cases and no wooden beds or benches should be put up "—With respect to the vagrant ward, Mr R.

Life-Saving Corps. Te following letter was read from Dr Williams with reference t* this sub- ject After recent events which have hap- pened in the vicinity vf the Bala district, I should like to call your attention to the necessity of organising a life saving corps. I understand that you have already in contemplation the formation of a fire brigade and I suggest that these two could be united in one organisation and that a meeting be called for the purpose of starting the move- ment. I have not the slightest doubt but that the ) number required would be forthcoming and a very able corps could be got up.The Chairman said if they decided to establish a life-saving corps, it would not mean any ccst to the Council. The only thing was that it was thought it would per- haps be more permanent if under the auspices of the C.,I. H. LI. Davies thought it would be better to defer the question until the next Councd, as it came rather sudden and no cne had thought of it.—Mr Lloyd Jones said that he be- lieved everyone would understand the question immediately, as it was quite simple. —Mr W. T. Jones suggested that as the Committee which had the question of forming a fire brigade were to sub- mit a report to the next Council, that this matter should be entrusted to that Committee and that they should report thereon.—Mr Lloyd Jones said he was quite willing for that course to be taken.— Mr H. LI. Davies then proposed and Mr R. Lloyd Jones seconded that the letter be referred to the above-mentioned Committee and that they should report thereon at tne next meeting of the Council. —It A-as also decided to ask Dr Williams to join ,he Cominittee,On the motion of Mr R.

L At the Pwllheli Police Court, on Monday, Dr Hunter Hughes held an inquiry into the cause of the deaths of twelve persons who lost their ltves in the bay opposite South Beach, on the 1st July. Superintendent Jones said that the inhabitants of South-beach showed every kindness and readi- j ness in providing hot-water bottles and blankets. Every effcrt was made by Drs Samuel Griffiths 1 (Pwllheli), William Thomas (Nevin), and Rees to 1 restore animation. William Jones Roberts, William Peters, R. Williams, Robert Thomas, John Jones, John Hughes, and others gave evi- clence. The Coroner, in summing up, said it was quite clear to him that the boat was a new* and strong one. The owner was an experienced hand. The boat was brought from Portmadoc to Pwllheli over the bay, which was enough to prove that it was a good boat An experienced boatman had said the boat wculd easily carry from eight to nine adults. The aggregate weight in it on the fatal day would not come up to the weight of nine adults, as most of those on board were children, some of them very young. The boat started properly from the beach, John Hughes assisting in geting through the surf and afterwards sitting on the bow of the boat with his hands over the side to balance her. In about forty minutes the weather j changed and became boisterous. A little sea came over the side of the boat and one of the children got terrified and called out to John Hughes. His father, John Hughes, jumped over the boatman and the next seat and went into the stern. Robert Thomas called on him in the name of God to keep quiet, but the boat capsized. The accident would not have happened had it not been for the conduct of the unfortunate John Hughes. It was not surprising that an accident happened under such circumstances. It would have been safer not to have gone so far into the bay, but the boat was safe enough for the place barring acci- dents and if all kept their seats. It was swamped through John Hughes changing his seat when the boitt was on the point of returning. All the people on the beach rendered every possible help. It was j in absolute lie that Peters called for help and that 10 one gave any assistance. It was a reflection up- 30 the good name of the Pwllheli people who did ill they could on the occasion. The Coroner then ['eferred to the bylaws and said that what the Local 8-oyeromect Board had were only optional and would not be of any benefit for a place like that. If the parliamentary representatives of the Council md borough took the matter up statutory powers might be got again on the line of the clause that was in the Pwllheli Corporation Improvement Bill, 1897. The boatman agreed to take nine persons into the boat, but they kidnapped three others there, thus casting responsibility upon themselves as to the accident. The Coroner did not think that they could find anyone legally responsible for the accident. There should be a mortuary in the town. It was most objectionable to take bodies to 1 private house. The jury found that the deceased met their deaths by accident, which was caused by a sudden change of weather bringing on a cross sea, and aggravated by John Hughes moving from the bow af the boat tc the stern against the orders ef the boatman. The Council snould erect a mortuary in the place and the Council should again apply for statutory powers to regulate pleasure boats, &c.
