DOLGELLEY. DR WILLIAMS'S SCHOOL RE-UNION. The illustrated edition of the Cambrian New. published on Wednesday morning, containing a full report of the proceedings, was bought up with great avidity in the town. TRAMPS' HOTEL.—We are able to report at last that an ideal common lodging-house is about to be opened in the town by Mr Walton of Manchester. The premises secured is Plasbrith, which was at one tirrelone of the most aristocratic houses in the town. The garden and premises are very suitable for the purpose and under the management of Mr Walton the town of Dolgelley may boast of the best common lodging-house in the county. SCHOLASTIC SUCCESS.—Great satisfaction was felt in the town that Miss Mary Ellis, daughter of the late Mr E. R. Ellis, Bro Arran, and Miss Annie Jones, the daughter of Mr and Mrs Jones, Ffrydan-road, Bala, were successful io winning the f25 scholarship offered to pupils at Dr Williams's School. They have decided to hold them at the Aberystwyth College. Miss Jones of Bala is a grand-daughter of Mrs Edwards, Plasyn- dre, and niece to Dr Roger Edwards, Colwyn Bay (late of Llanfyllin. Mont.)- URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL, MONDAY, JULY 24TH.—Present: Mr J. Meyrick Jones (mayor) presiding, Dr John Jones, Messrs Edward Williams, Thomas Parry, Richard Richards, Ellis Williams, John Jones, Richard Barnett (deputy clerk), and E. R. Jones (rite collector). GAME LICENCES. Mrs Owen, Bridge-street, appeared before the Council and applied fur the renewal of her licence to deal in game.—The application was granted, on the proposition of Mr John Jones, seconded by Mr Richards—The licence of Mr J. B. Mee, Bridge- street, was also renewed, on the proposition of Mr Richards, seconded by Nil Parry. OVERDUE ACCOUNTS. Mr Thomas Parry again referred to the fact that the Council sometimes did not pay accounts for twelve or eighteen months. He thought every effort should be made to get in all accounts due at the end of each quarter, so that the Council might know exactly where they stood. The Council had ow ;d a small account to the Pwllheli Granite Company for some years. This was not as it should be. The members of the Council should secure bills quarterly in the same way as they secured them in their private capacity. -The Mayor agreed, adding that the Pwllheli Granite Company had said that they had applied on several occasions for payment of their account.—It was understood that in future every effort would be made to pay all accounts due at the end of the quarter. SKINNERS ARMS. The Clerk, referring to the deferred question affecting the Skinners Arms, said the Surveyor, who was to have reported thereon was unavoidably absent. The meeting, which was to have been held on Tuesday night, had been held that evening in consequence of the public meetings in connection with D. Williams'School being held on Tuesday.— Consideration of the matter was deferred to the next meeting. A TELEPHOMC CONNECTION. It was resolved that Mr Carpenter, who has re- cently had a telephonic connection between his private residence, Brynorlas and the Brewery, should be asked to enter iato an agreement stipu- lating that he should disconnect the wire within three months in the event of such a request being made by the Council. SMITHFIELD STREET. Mr E. W. Evans, a member of the Council, who has been making negotiations with Professor Ellis Edwards, for the purchase of a piece of land with the vittw of widening Smithfield-street wrote stating that Professor Ellis Edwards would be leaving Bala at the end of the month and would not return for a long time. Had he the Council's permission to proceed with the negotiations f Jr the acquisition of the land ?-The Council unanimously resolved to clothe Mr Evans with power to acquire the land. UNPAID RATE. The Rate Collcetor reported that £3 of last year's rate was dre from a certain person and he asked for instructions. The Council unanimously resolved to take legal proceedings to recover the money due. THE OBSTRUCTION PROBLEM. The following letter was received from Mr John Griffith, draper, Commerce House, Dolgelley July 24th. In reply to your letter re the obstruction in Lion-street caused by goods being left on the pavements, I beg to deny any intention on my part or anyone in my employment to obstruct the traffic in any way and I beg to point out that I have discontinued the practice of making an out- side show of goods now for some considerable time owing to receiving a letter from the Council informing me that if the practice was continued they would be bound to enforce the bylaws; although the same thing happened then and is I now allowed in Lion street by the obstruction caused by the tubs (placed in front of the Lion Hotel and by tradesmen exposing their goods in other parts of the town without their attention being called or their being written to respecting the obstruction. I claim reasonable time for unpacking and forwarding goods and I sincerely hope that the Council will treat all ratepayers alike."—The Mayor thought Mr Griffith had acted in a most gentle- manly manner and was deserving of the thanks of the Council. He might say that Mr Howell Owen, grocer, had also intimated to him that he would not cause any unnecessary obstructions. He only wanted a rpasonable time to unpack the goods on delivery. He (the Mayor) suggcosted that the ex- planations of Mr Griffith and Mr Owen should be accepted as satisfactory.—On the proposition of Mr Thomas Parry the suggestion, was unanimously adopted —Mr Edward Williams said whilst the Council was on the question of obstructions, he would lay before them a question which had been put to him by a man who proposed purchasing a horse and trap. This person desired to know whether he could leave the trap in the street before the County Hall for an hour or two if he found it necessary to do so ? He had been informed that objection was raisad years ago to traps being left on the street before the Angel Hotel.—The Mayor: Objection was raised because the traps were allowed to remain for hours on the road and they con- stituted a serious annoyance to pedestrians.—Mr Edward Williams said the person who spoke to him wished to know whether he could leave his trap on the street for an hour or so.—Mr Richards took it that so long as there was no unreasonable obstruction any owner of a trap could leave his con- veyance on the street. If the traffic was seriously impeded, however, a stop would l-ave to be put to the obstruction.—The Mayor We must encourage people to come to the town. We must not deal too harshly with owners of traps.—Mr Edward Williams Let us settle the matter once and for all.—Mr Parry thought a stand for about three I conveyances should be fixed outside the County Hall.—The Mayor That would be an advantage. It would be near the Station, and it behoves us to I do all we can to assist the Cambrian Railway Com- pany in return for their kindness.—Mr Richards and Mr John Jones said the Council would have I. to be careful. They must not do anything rash, or they might originate an obstruc- tion themselves. -Dr Jones: We could see that there were not too many traps at the stand.—The Acting Clerk, replying to Mr Edward I Williams, said the Council were supposed to see that there were no obstructions of any sort in the town. They could impose regulations in connection with the stand. For instance, if they resolved to have a stand for chree conveyances and six convey- ances were placed there, they had the power tf) remove three. —It was then resolved to make arrangements for fixing a stand outside the County Hall capable of holding three conveyances.—The Acting Clerk said the Council could, if they liked, compel drivers to take out licences.—Dr John Jones For the present we are doing quite enough. MAESMAWR FOOTPATH. Mr Edward Williams reported that the Com- mittee appointed to consider the question of con- structing a footpath at Maesmawr had visited the place in company with Mr Griffith Ellis. They came to the conclusion that every effort should be made not to encroach on the Llwyn Estate and that the course of the cattle should not be obstructed. The Surveyor would report as to the cost.—Mr Richards, a member of the Committee, said the work would cost very little.—On the proposition of Dr Jones, seconded by Mr Ellis Williams, it was agreed to authorise the Surveyor to carry out the work forthwith. ON THE CHEAP. Mr Edward Williams said evidently Dolgelley was not free from malefactors. Amongst the late- payers were included a section of people who secured firewood on the cheap. The palisade on the side of the road on this side of the bridge lead- ing to Dr Williams's School had been carried away piecemeal by persons who utilized their ill-gotten gains as firewood. He proposed that a wire fence should now be placed there. They could not utilize wire as firewood.—Dr Jones seconded the proposition which was agreed to. THE FIRE BRIGADE. Mr Edward Williams referred to the satisfactory report which had been received with regard to the Dolgelley Fire Brigade at the festival at Colwyn Bay. The report was one which the town could justly feel proud of. In order that nothing might occur to tarnish their present record, he would like to know whether the hydrants were in perfect order and whether the members met regularly for the monthly training ?—The Acting Clerk (who is a member of the Brigade) Yes. They meet almost weekly at present.—Mr Edward Williams: Every member turns up ?-The Acting Clerk There are exceptions. As you know, there are black sheep in every flock.-Mr Edward Williams The black sheep must be weeded out. Do you think they would turn up in case of fire ?—The Acting Clerk I should like you to put the questions to the captain. Dr Jones said such questions were for the captain, and if Mr Williams wished to ask them he was ready to propose that the captain should be asked to attend the next meeting for the purpose -Mr Edward Williams said he was informed that some members of the Brigade had not gone to Colwyn Bay.—The Mayor: The members who went had to pay their own expenses.-Ir Edward Williams said he wanted to have the Brigade as near perfec- tion as possible. The majority of the rrembers were good Men.—The Mayor concurred, observing that the Brigade had by their smart appearance conferred an honour uprn the town.—Dr John Jones said the thanks of the Council and of the inhabitants of the town were due to Mr John Griffiths, the energetic and able captain of the Brigade.—The Clerk, replying to the question of Mr Edwatd Williams as to the hydrants, said they were all in good order.—Mr Edward Williams: I merely mention this matter so as to be ready for eventualities. -R-plying to Mr Richards, the Clerk said the Council undertook to pay any deficiency if the Brigade failed to secure enough money out of subscriptions and concerts, &c.—Mr Richards said he quite agreed with Mr Edward Williams that the Council should do all they could to assist the Brigade to be prepared for emer- gencies. It was to be hop?d that there would he no call for their services f.,r a long time to come. THE WATER SFPPLY. Mr Thomas Parry compUiued with regard to the water supply of the upper part of the town. He said the water at times wis coloured red and for many hours a day there was no water at all. As a result, people were put to a lot of inconvenience, especially those who had visitors staying at their houses.—The Mayor Po you mean to say that daily you are left without water f T some hours?— Mr Parry Yes.—The Mayor This is very serious and we must see to it.—Mr Ellis Williams It is the same in the Lawnt.-N.ir Richards said a com- mittee was appointed some time ago to inquire with regard to the water supply of the town.—The Mayor said the Committee had not submitted a report.—Mr Parry suggested that the Council should ascertain whether the water supply of the district in the direction of Frondirion, Mount Pleasant, and Brynderw was satisfactory.—Dr John Jones did not think the suggestion a wise one. He thought the directors of the Water Company should be approached in the first place. They might in- stantly remedy the evil.-The Mayor expressed a similar opinion.—Ultimately, Mr Parry said he would make inquiries on his own account, and con- sideration of the matter was deferred to the next meeting. THE BARMorTH ROAD SIGNPOST. Mr J. Charles Hughes, solicitor, Dolgelley, sent the following letter :—'• I am directed by the Rev J. Lloyd, rector of Dolgelley, one of the trustees of the Dolgelley National School, Bontfawr, to ask under what authority, without any reference to him or his co-trustees. a signpost has been attached to the wall of the playground of the school. My client, as you can readily under- stand, has not the slightest desire or intention of obstructing or preventing facilities for the benefit of the town, its inhabitants, or visitors, but he stands in a fiduciary position and consequently does not feel justified in allowing an eucroachment with the possibility of becoming a right I feel perfectly sure you will accept this letter in the spirit in which it is written and I have no reason to believe but that the admission of the right of the Rector or his successors to the wall in question will suffice."—Mr Edward Williams said the sign had been placed there because it w-is the:oniy avail- able place. He thought the Council had the right to fix it to the wall.—Dr Jones proposed that the Council should apologise to the Rector.—Mr Richard Richards seconded the proposition which was supported by Mr Edward William? aod carried, it being also agreed, on the suggestion of Mr Edward Williams, to tell the Rector that the Council were prepared to recognise his right by taking down the siga in three months if it was his wish.—Mr Parry said the Council were deeply in- debted to Mr Edward Williams for the great trouble he had taken with regard to the plates. This was the only complaint the Council had re- ceived respecting their location. COMMON LODGING HOUSE. Dr Jones said the thanks of the Council were due to Mr Walton for opening a common lodging house in the town.—The other members concurred. CLERK'S BILL OF COSTS. The Acting Clerk said the Clerk's biil of costs in connection with the slaughter-house law suit was almost ready and he desired to know whether he could send it on to the Clerk of the Peace for the county (Mr Robert Jones, Portmadoc) after it had been completed, to be taxed. Tiie Clerk thought it would be better for him and for the ratepayers for the bill to be submitted to an uninterested person for taxation.—The Mayor I think the bill should come befoie the Finance Committee in the first place.-Alr Edward Williams I do not see what good would be gained thereby. I propose that the bill when completed should be sent to the Clerk of the Peace to be taxed. The Council can consider it after it has been taxed.—The Mayor We have every confidence in Mr Davies, but I think it is but right tiat every bill, no matter of what kind it is, should be placed before the Finance Committee first of all. I should think Mr Davies would pre fer it to be so himself.—Mr Richards was of the same opinion, remarking that once the bill was taxed the Council could not very well make any alteration even if they wished to do so.—The Mayor: I thick it would be most insulting to me as chairman and to you as a Council if this hill was sent first of all to the Clerk of the Peace.—The Acting Clerk No, no, sir. There is no intention to insult.—Mr Edward Williams: Of course not. It is trerely a matter of business.— The Mayor I do not think such a thing would be done in connection with other councils.—The Acting Clerk That is the usual order, sir. How- ever. it is open to you to pay without taxing the bill at all.—Dr Jones I do not see that any harm would be done in looking over the bill before sending it to be taxed. I propose that the Finance Committee should examine it first of all.-The Acting Clerk There is nothing in it that could not be seen quite as well after it has been taxed The Mayor It is not right to send bills to be taxed before they have been examined by the Finance Committee. I protest against it.—Dr Jones We do not want to do anything against the feelings of Mr Davies —The Mayor: We have our own feelings as well. What is the good of sitting here lor two hours if we are going to do business like this I-Mr Ellis Williams ra; d he was of the same view as the Mayor, that the bill should be examined by the Finance Committee first of all.- Dr Jones and Mr Richard? pressed their proposi. tion. whereupon the A-ting Clerk said Mr Davies would prefer the bill to be taxed by an independent party first of all.—Mr Edward Williams: I have said my say. I suppose those who were mixed up in this caw] want to see the bill. I was not here at the "utset of the trouble.—The proposition was then put to the meeting and carried, Mr Edw. Williams and Mr Parry not voting.—Mr Edward W illiams afterward said he had not the slightest objection to the Finance Committee examining the bill first of all. -The Council then rose.
