With reference to the frames of windows in the attics, it is odd that the tenant should not have complained to me or to my bailiff if they were in the state he represents. Per- haps he is aho unaware that for my own and my tenants' sakes, I am not in the habit of allowing my farm houses to fall into bad repair. Wit h respect to the state of the open drains about the houses in the district, I think his time will be fully taken up 0 if he succeeds in getting them kept clean. If the Rural District Council would see that the wall of the bridge at Pontygarth, which has been partially knocked down forovertwelve months, was repaired, I think it would be of greater consequence than overlooking my farm houses which I and my bailiff are able to do ourselves."—Dr Jones said it was his duty to report upon such matters, and letters of that kind would not deter him from doing his duty.—It was resolved to ask that the work should be done by Mrs Scott in a month.—It having been stated that Pontygarth bridge was repairable by the county authority, the Clerk suggested that the attention of the County Surveyor should be drawn to the matter but Mr Charles Williams said he did not see why the Council should mind other people's business and the Council agreed with him, -Mr Ansell, Gorsygedol, v/rote saying that he was ir treaty with a contrjcvor to repair Aberseirw. It was also stated that the complaint as to liquid manure flowing into drinking water at Llvvyngwril had been remedied. C'orris.—Mr Owen, clerk to Talyllyn Parish Council, wrote drawing the attention of the Coun- cil to the state or the bottom of Corris caused by persons throwing refuse ihto the stream. The Cjuncil also drew attention to the stench arising from the stables at the Railway Station. The Parish Council thought that nothing effectual could be done until the police assisted in detecting offenders throwing refuse into the river.-iNIr J. P. Jones said he eiuld speak from experience and say that the place was in a very bad state. He %i a's glad that the Parish Council had taken the matter up.—Dr Hugh Jones said the Council could utilize the police and had power to prosecute. There ^ere no sewers or drains at Corris and in view of t great expense their construction would entail there was a hesitancy in asking that drains and sewers should be made. What was being done was done in the direction of s-civenging. If the police would get evidence, the Council could deal 'Ilcc' ■meeossmdy with the complaint of throwing refuse into the Meyrick Roberts asked if there was a puice for the reception of refuse?—Dr Hugh Jones rep!ied that a cart was taken about to collect retuse twice a week but he thought that receptacles should be provided in different places. -Mr J. P. Jones said that all sorts of things were thrown into the stream and last week the smell was something awful. It was decided to have notices erected cautioning people against throwing refuse into the stream but to put it with the ashes, the impression prevailing that ashes only were to be taken away by the scavengers. The Medical Officer's Report.~Dv Hugh Jones, the medical officer, presented his monthly report which stated that on June 6th he visited Goruyr, Brithdir and Islaw'idref, the walls and roofs of which were defective and not proof against wind and water. The sleeping-rooms were low, badly ventilated, and had no ceilings. The floor was also dilapidated. There were no eaves troughs. On the same date examined Llwyntalcan in the same parish. The gable of the house was in the soil to a great height. The sleeping-rooms were moat contined and inefficiently ventilated owing to the roof being so low and to the want of fireplaces and proper wirdows. There were no ceilings. The house was in a most unsatisfactory conditon. On June 9;h again visited Byrdir, Dyffryn, as re- quested by the Council and could only confirm his previous report in every particular. He also ex- amined Biynllysg in the vicinity. The sleeping- rooms were not properly ventilated owing to the windows not being made to open sufficiently. The dairy was small, dark, and unventilated. The pigsties were close to and within a yard of the house and a cowshed was attached to the gable end of the house. There were no eaves troughs. On the same date he inspected Llwyngwian Fach in the same parish. The soil was right up the eaves at the back of the house and was most unwhole- some. Tnere were no eaves troughs and the water percolated through the walls into the kitchen in bad weather. The sleeping-rooms had no ceilings and the roof was so low as to make them positively- dangerous from a health point of view. The house was quite unfit for human habitation. On June loth visited with the Sanitary Instructor Bodwlan spring which it was proposed to utilize as a water supply for Llwyngwril. A sample was taken for analysis and he had received a report saying that the water is clear and bright and free from smell and taste. It is a pure water and, I am of opinion, well suited for drinking purpose's and domestic use. The Sanitary Inspector also took gaugings which he said was most satisfactory. On June 29th examined Ranteiddwyn, Dyffryn, occu- pied by Mrs Pugh. The roof of the hou,'e was de- fective and allowed water to get through. There were no ceilings for the sleeping-rooms. Oil che same date again examined Penrhiw-terrace, Llan. aber, upon which he reported some months ago. The drainage of the homes was in a disgraceful condition and he must again ask the Council to in- sist that that condition of things was remedied without delay, as dangerous consequences mi,-ht supervene. There had been an extensive outbreak of measles throughout a large portion of the dis- trict during the past few weeks, over 160 cases having been already notified, but no deaths. Llwyngwril, Llanfachreth, Brithdir, Llanelltyd, Gaullwyd, Bontddu. Dyffryn, and Bryncoedifor schools had been closed.—Mr Charles Williams said in respect of one matter in the report the case had been reported upon, notice given, and nothing had been done. He thought matters should be carried out and not reported on re- peatedly.—Dr Hugh Jones added that the case re- ferred to by Dr Williams was really dangerous to health and should be seen to.-It Ws agreed to ask that the work referred to should be done within a nioiith.-It was also resolved to serve notices in respect of the other cases mentioned in the report. Llvyngvrd Water Supply.—A letter was read from Mr D Gillart, agent to the Countess de Morella s Ll wyngwril Estate, saying in reference to an interview he had had with a deputation from the Council relative to the water supply that he should be glad to receive instructions to proceed with the adoption of the substituted scheme. The sooner some decision was arrived at the better, as he understood thqt the Countess de Morella was 'desirous that the matter should be proceeded with as quickly as possible. -A report was read showing that the outflow of water at the springs was satis- factory.—Mr EUis Pugh Jones sa'd he had been using water for years taken from the place con- demned by Dr Jones because sheep were washed in the stream above. In order to avoid the extra cost of the new scheme, he suggested that arrangements should be made whereby the water could be turned I off from the* reservoir during the tim" sheep were being washed.—Mr R. Hughes said he had seen dead sheep in the stream in former years. Mr Meyrick Roberts proposed and Mr Ellis Williams seconded that Mr Gillart should be requested to prepare an estimate of the scheme and the proposi- tion was agreed to. Vpryn Water Supply.— A repoit was presented stating that the ourflow from the Bronyfoel spring, Dyffryn, was 24,500 in the twenty-four hours and the source looked to be everything that was desir- able.—It was agreed to have the wat-r analysed. Condolence.—On the proposition cf Mr Meyrick Roberts, seconded by Mr Richard Jones, it was decided to pass a vote of condolence wrh the re- latives of Mr Rd. Williams, Dolfynncn, deceased. Time of ,MeetinrJ. The trains having been altered. on the proposition of Mr Meyrick Rob rt-1, it was agreed to meet in future at t n o'clock instead of half-past ten,—Mr Charles Williams suggested that the same alteration should be made in respect of the Guardians and the Cierk said he would put the matter on the agenda for the next meeting. Hiji/ncctys.—A meeting of the Highway Board was held after the meeting of the ijistrict Council with Mr John Evans, Barmouth, in the chair, and Mr K Jones Griffith, clerk. Mr Williams, the surveyor, wrote saying he was unable to be present through having met with an accident. In the matter of the Arthog path, the B- ari appo nt d a committee consistiiie of three members of the Council and three ratepayers to investigate the matter pending proceedings to assert the rights the public alh ge to have in the path. Councillors Cadwaladr Roberts, John Edwards, and William Lloyd, and Messrs John Griffith, Callestra. William Williams Pork- ington, Barmouth, and T. J. Stephens Heuddol, were appointed on the Committee. A c mmuni- cation was read from the County Authority asking the District Council to contribute to He cost of bridges over the Shervel and Rhiwlech and, on the preposition of Mr E. P. Jones, seconded fcy Mr Richard Jones, it was agreed to make no cont ribu- tion.—The Cierk was direct d to pr, ss for the pay- ment of calls in arrear.—Mr Superintend nt Jones applied for power to deal with a man a Talyllyn who had been ejected from a house on M «espandy and was now living in the open surrounded by his furniture and Mr Meyrick Roberts added that he understood the man slept in an old oak chest.—It was resolved to give the pol'V tu- neeest-ary power to deal with the matter. PETTY SESSIONS, JULY 4TU.—Before O. S. Wynne, in the chair Ed" ,id Giiffith, R. E. LI. Richards, Tnomas E.lwards, J. Meujig Jones, E>qrs.

William and Ellis Roberts, English-terrace, were charged by W. Amcry Vaughan, river watcher for the Board of Conservators, Dovey, Mawddach, and Glaslyn, for having on the 19th June a gaff in their possession.—Mr Oswald Davies appeared for the Board and Mr Guthrie Jones appeared fur the defendants.—The watcher said that about 12-30 p.m. he saw the two defendants by the river side. Saw the defendant, Ellis Roberts, kneeling near the roots in the river and working his arms as if he had something in the water. When they saw wit- ness coming up ti thsm they sat down and Eliis Roberts began to play upon an old pan. He asked toem what they saw and they replied that they were Icok ng fcr work at the piling engine close by, but that the men had gone away. He (witness; told them where the foreman was and they sat down for a few minutes. Defendants walked away in the direction of home and he (witness) weut to the place where he saw defendant. Ellis Roberts kneeling and found a gaff lashed to a stick (pro- duced). He called them back and accused th-n; of using the same, which they denied.- Upon coss- examination by Mr Guthrie Jones, witness said he saw some poachers in the same placp on the previous day and suspected them. He found no gaff in their possession nor in the roots, as he had made a care- tul inspection. He first saw the defendants by Dr Williams's School bridge and they were looking et the river. He asked them then what they were looking for and they said tels and pointed a- fit, one out to him.—The two defendants were put in the witness box and denied all knowledge of the gaff produced. They gave every information to the keeper as to their names and their business 01: the spot.—The Bench, after some deliberation, said that there was grtat suspicion in the case, but they did not think the evidence was sufficiently stryug to enable them to convict. The summons would be dismissed.
