A silver collection was nnde. THE PWLLBELI DISASTER. INQUEST AND VERDICT. 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 lives in the bay opposite South Beach, on the 1st July. Superintendent Jones said that the inhabitants of South-beach showed every kindness and readi- ness in providing hot-water bottles and blankets. Every effort was made by Drs Samuel Griffiths (Pwllheli), William Thomas (Nevin), and Rees to restore animation. William Jones Roberts, William Peters, R Williams, Robert Thomas, John Jones, John Hughes, and others gave evi- dence. 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 ever the bay, which was enough to prove that it Was a good boat An experienced boatman had said the boat would 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 getting through the surf and afterwards sitting on the bow of the boat with his hands over the side to halauc-3 her. In about forty minutes the weather 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 boat was on the point of returning. All the people on the beach rendered every possihie heit, It was an absolute lie that Peters called for help and that no one gave any assistance. It was a reflection up- on the good name of the Pwllheli people who did all they could on the occasion. The Coroner then referred to the bylaws and said that what the Local Government Board had were only optional and wculd not be of any benefit for a place like that. If the parliamentary representatives of the Council and 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 a private house. The jury found that the deceased met their deaths by accident, which was caused by a sadden change of weather bringing on a cross sea, and aggravated by John Hughes moving from the bow of the boat to the stern against the orders ef the boatman. The Council should erect a mortuary in the place and the Council should again apply for statutory powers to regulate pleasure boats, &c.

Report.—Mr Bircham, ti>e Local Government Board's inspector, visited the HOlle and m-de the following entry in the visitors' book "I have this day inspected the Workhouse. There are several places where the damp comes in through walls and ceilings. These should be rep tired with- out further delay. Painting is required also to woodwork and troughing outside especially, though inside as weil should be done. There is no economy in letting a building go to the bad from want of timely rep tirs. These matters appear to have been referred to the building Committee as long ago as February last. I was surprised to find the vagranc wards not yet occupied. I do hope the Guardians will now see that the contractor finishes (,ff. 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 obtained for the associated ward for surplus cases and no wooden beds or benches should be put up "—With respect to the vagrant wards, Mr R. Lloyd Jones, the architect, informed the Guardians that he had re- quested the contractor to complete the wards with- out further delay, and at a subsequent interview, the contractor had promised to finish and deliver up this work without any further delay.-With reference to the other remarks of Mr Bircham, a report was submitted by Mr R. Lloyd Jones of all the work to be done at the Workhouse.—It was decided that the whole work be entrusted to Mr Lloyd Jones and that he should procure tenders.— A report was read from Denbigh Asylum of the condition of pauper lunatics in the Asylum charge- able to Bala Union for the half-year ending 301 June last.

Plans.—The ground plan of the proposed new houses to be hu'.lt by Mr Evan Jones opposite the Boys County School were again considered and the (Street and Sanitary Committees which had been appointed to consider the question of reconstruct- ing the main sewer which goes under the proposed new houses submitted their report in which they stated that on the recommendatiota of the Clerk they suggested that the Council should propose to Mr Evan Jones that he should do the alteration to the drain as mentioned by him, if he would pay half the cost.—After a lengthy discussion, it was ultimately resolved upon the motion of Mr J. W. Roberts, seconded by Mr H. Ll. Davies, that the plans be approved of subject to adequate provision being made for flood water and also easy access to the public sewer io convenient places.

Water Mains. -The Water Committee presented their reporl on the desirability of having the maio pipes laid in certain streets, and also of recon- structing some of the present main water pipes. The Surveyer had prepared a careful and volumin- ous report ar d submitted a scheme of carrying out the work.—The Committee had considered the scheme of the Surveyor and they now submitted the following report :—(1) That the report of the Surveyor be accepted and adopted, but that the circulation should be completed and every sub main connected with the main at each end.

Life-Saving Corps.—The following letter was read from Dr Williams with reference te this sub- ject After recent events which have hap- pened in the vicinity uf 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 woufd not mean any cost to the Council. The only thing was that it was thought it would per- I haps be more permanent if under the auspices of the Council. — Mr H. LI. Davies thought it would be better to defer the question until the next Council, as it came rather sudden and no cne had be better to defer the question until the next Council, as it came rather sudden and no cne had I thought of it,-iNIr 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 shouli report thereon.—Mr Lloyd Jones said he was quite willing for that course to be taken.— Mr H.
