The Inspector reported U:nt rats had got into the sewers, and were doing great mischief, by burrowing and causing subsidences. The town .surveyor was dire'cted ito deal with the matter. Slot Cookers. The Council as an experiment have resolved, on the advic.e.of their engineer, to purchase one dozen slot cookers ito meet the demands of slot consumers, and they will "be let out on the fol- lowing terms—to be fixed entirely free, and, that they be charged icl for aoft.or 4S 2d pr 1,000 cubic f.eet for ithe gas; consumed (as- at present), but they would have no discount returned when the meter was emptied at the end of 'the quarter. A similar scheme has! been adopted in many other .town.s with great success. To the Point. A new boa'-iheuse is to be constructed at -the Marine Lake. The public streets 'are to be re-numbered. A site has been offered on the .south west corner of Ae lake grounds for the erection of a large sign to advertise the National Eisteddfod. Twenty sweatmeat are to be placed on ithe .seafront and at the lake at a rent of ft each. The erosion of the sea on the Marine-drive is CuU;.o.n.g .anxiety to the iarcl Pbi-ittill" property owners, who are making arrangements to deal dicctiviely with it. The- Council have resolved .not to disinfect any articles belonging ito smallpox patients out- side their own -district. Mr Geo. H. Bre.reton, Ii, Abbey-street:, Rhyl, is re-gisitered as a purveyor of milk. Fishing in the Reservoir. Tihe charges -for fishing in it-he Llaae/ydd re-ervoir have been considered, and it was re- scued tnai tce charge, for cfishing be reduced from 2-s to i-s per day, and that a. weekly ticket be issued a,t 3s 6d per week (fly or "bottom fishing allowed). Wafer Supply. During March, 10,597,000 -gallons of water were delivered throughout the Council's d'o- trk't, from Rbyl to St. George -and down to Trst- nan- compared to 11,830,000 -gallons the -cor- responding month last year, being a decrease of gallons. The reservoir is I ing. The Electric Light Estimates. LOAL GOVERNIMENT BOARD AND THE RECENT EXCESSES. A CAUTION. The Town Clerk read the correspondence which had passed between himself and the Local Goveniimen-t Board with reference- to the recent inquiry re application for sanction to loans, wherein, the Board asked for an explanation of the excesses on -estimates, and of the deviations and additions, to the scheme without (first ob- taining the assent of ,the Board. The Council having promised that in future ahev would not spe.nd any money without -the sanction of the superior Board, the latter agreed to sanction the borrowing of various sums up to ^14,000, but disallowed several items, including a sum of £ 6 105 spent in connection with the opening ceremony of the electric works, and a sum of ^85 granted to the town surveyor for extra work, as they were not proper subjects for a loan. The Clerk was complimented upon Ohe tact he had displayed in his correspondence with the Board, the chairman jocularly remarking that he should be appointed ambassador to some State or other, where his diplomatic talents would have full scope. (Laughter.) Proposed Electric Main in Kinmel-street. The Council have resolved to lay a cable along Kinmel-street at a cost of £ 1$. The expected revenue will amount to between £ 7 and £ 8 per annum. The Smallpox Hospital. A SITE PROCURED. The question of .site was considered by the Sanitary Committe,e -on the 8th of April, -and Mr W. Conwy Bell was asked what was the lowest price for the land offered by the Bodrhyddan Estate without any conditions as to water sup- ply. He then offered the land at £ 160 per acre; the Council, to plaice a galvanised iron fence, 6ft. high on iron, supports, when the hos- pital is- erected. The report of the town surveyor and sanitary inspector on ch2 two sites—Mrs Oldfield's and Mrs Conwy's—was then considered, and it was a,gleed to recommend that I acres of land offered by Mrs -Conwy be purchased at £ 160 per acre, subject to the approval of the Local Gov- ernment Board, and to tiheir sanction- to a loan for the purcihase of the land. This was agreed to, and it was further resolved to apply for permission to borrow £ 1,534 for purchase of hospital buildings, et)c. Financial Position of the Town. LOSSES IN EVERY TRADING DEPART MENT. STATEMENT my THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXOHEQUER. At the last meeting of the Finance- Com- mittee, the auditor's report on the accounts for the year ending March, 1902, was discussed. The-deficiency in the general district ffund was specially considered, with the view of finding Jhe best way for meeting it. It is made 'up as follows oil gasworks, ZI,400 ns iod loss on waterworks, ^'2,818 33 2d; loss on electric light, £ 314 16s 8d loss on district rate, £ 1,346 12s nd; total, £ 5,880 4-3.17d. It was recommended that the chairman of the Council, the chairman of the Finance Com- mittee, and the clerk of the Council be appointed a deputation to wait on the Local Governent Board with a view of-obtaining their assistance to improve the financial position of the Council. Mr J. W. Jones (chairman of the Finance Committee) said it was' exceedingly difficult for him to -go fully into the report without .antici- pating somewhat the financial •staJteme-nt for next year. However, he was not .going into the matter (that day (except to say, with the object of dispelling certain:alarmist rumours, that the town's financial position was not so gloomy as some thought it was. In saying that ihedid not for a m,oment minimise the seriousness, of the auditor's report. They fully realised their difficulties twelve months a-o and determined ito fa'ce their resp,iisibi,LLiei, by imposing a rate which they deemed adequate to meet .expendi- ture for the current year. That rate, he was glad to say, had turned out to be more than adequate for their purpose, and they would find when the statement was issued that tthey were substantially under their estimated expenditure. (Hear, hear.) Instead ongoing back, the Coun- cil had distinctly improved its'financial position. They had still to face the old accumulated debt of £5,880 4s lel, and it must be obvious that that sum could not stand in arrear for ever. The Finance Committee, therefore, discussed the ways and means of relieving themselves of that indebtedness. His own proposition which he made at the meeting was that, seeing most of the deficit was- in respect of the trading 'con- cerns, the Local Government Board should be asked to sanction a floating loan. They were very much in the position of a private indivi- dual or a company carrying on business with- out-capital. They had. to carry on their con- cerns for several months before they com- menced to receive any return. At the end of March he understood they had outstanding about r5,611 in respect of rentals from gas, water, and electric light. The committee agreed with him that it was perfectly fair to ask the Local Government Board to sanction a loan of £ 3,000 or £ 4,000, repayable within 10 years, which they could transfer to' revenue, and thus get rid at one stroke, of a substantial por- tion of their indebtedness. It was principally the water works that had landed -them into this debt. The first year they took them over a severe drought ran them into an expenditure of £ i,200, which ever since had been charged to revenue account. It was obvious could not pay this money off without placing an in- tolerable strain out the general district rate, but so far from adding to a rate of '5s 7-d in the £ they should) devise some scheme to reduce it as speedily as possible. (Hear, hear.) He en- tirely refuted the suggestion made in the local press that the auditor's report had been kept secret. He had never previously heard of the report coming before the members of the Coun- ci'. as a. whole. It had always; remained in the obscurity of the Finance Committee but, in their desire to 'put the town's- financial position frankly and fairly before them, the Finance Committee-had printed copies sent to every member of the Council. 'No secret meeting of the Council had been held to consider the docu- ment, and in order to allay any fears which might have arisen, he had no hesitation in say- ing 'that they would. be some -thousands c,f pounds better off than they contemplated at the beginning of the year. (Hear, hear.) Mr F. J. iGamli 11 seconded 'the committee'^ recommelclation, which was agreed to.
Denbighshire Quarter Sessions. The Prime Minister and the Licensing Justices. THKSE sessions were held on Saturday at the County Hall, Denbigh, Captain Griffith Boscawen presiding. In charging the Grand Jury, of whom Mr C. Cottam was foreman, the Chairman said that although the calendar was rather a heavy one, none of the cases ought to give the jury much trouble. One peculiarity of the calendar was that there was not a single case of larceny upon it, and that two ( f the prisoners were charged with uttering base coin —a most uncommon offence in that part of the county. From the report of the Chief Constable, presented to the Standing Joint Committee at its last meeting, he found that the number of offences, both indictable and non-indictable, was about the same as in the corresponding period of last year. The only unsatisfactory feature of the Chief 1 Constable's report was the continued large number of convictions for drunkenness. One might have hoped that legislation would have effected some good in this direction, and that cases of drunken- ness would have materially diminished in number. Unfortunately, however, that did not appear to be the case at present. Personally, he hoped that the new Licensing Act would do much good in this direction, but he believed that moral effects would do a great deal more to elevate the people so as to be above committing the debasing crime of di utili- enness than legislation would. The Clerk (Mr W. R Evans) formally submitted to the Court a report of the proceedings at the meetings of the two licensing committees for the county as to the earlier closing of public-houses in the country diitricts. From this report it appeared that the Committee in the Denbigh (western) ei:d of the county had made no order, whereas the Committee for the Wrexham district had ordered the closing of all public-houses in the parishes of Ruabon, Rhos, Peiiycae, and Erbistock at 10 p.m. instead of at I I p.m. The Chairman said he did not know whether the inhabitants of the parishes mentioned were satis- fied with the order, but he had not heard of any general complaints against it. Mr Lumley's Vote of Censure. Mr J. Watkyn Lumley had given notice of the following resolution That it is much to be re- gretted that the Prime Minister should have gone out of his way, in order to satisfy a deputation of brewers and licensed victuallers, to say that' he hoped the courts of quarter sessions would reverse the decisions of the petty sessional courts in dealing with the renewal of licenses' (such hopes savour of intimidation), when justices at petty sessions have simply exercised their legal rights." Colonel West (the Lord Lieutenant of the county), said that before Mr Lumley put his motion he wished to know whether fourteen days' notice was given of the motion, as required by the standing orders. The Clerk said the notice was dated the 28th of March and received on the 29th. That would only give 13 days. The Chairman said that under the circumstances Mr Lumley could not submit his motion unless he had the support of two-thirds of the magistrates present. Mr Lumley I am delighted, sir, to see so many gentlemen present on the bench to-day. Some- thing unusual has evidently drawn here some of the gentlemen I see before me—(Laughter), and I ,,e 11 trust I may get the sanction of the required two- thirds to permit me to lay before the court the reso- lution. On being put only four magistrates voted in favour of allowing Mr Lumley to submit the motion, a large majority voting against. 6 6 The Llanrwst Assault Case. John Roderick Jones, 43, quarryman was indicted for inflicting grievous bodily harm on his wife Ann Jones, at Llanrwst, on the 26th of February. Mr Ellis Griffith, M.P..prosecuted, and Mr Moss, M.P. (instructed by Mr E. Davies Jones, Llanrwst) defended The prisoner on the morning in question brought his wife her breakfast, but afterwards struck her on the head and chest and kicked her. It was suggested that the prisoner, who is in bad health, was mentally depressed and was not quite in his right mind. Dr. Jenkins, medical officer of Ruthin Prison, gave evidence to this effect. The prisoner was found guilty of common assult, and, it being sai&that his sister would take charge of him, he was bound over in a sum of £ 5 to keep the peace for twelve months. A charge of attempted suicide against the prisoner was not proceeded with. Unlawful Wounding at Abergele. John Jones, 43 labourer, pleaded guilty to unlaw- fully wounding Evan Evans, at Aberge!c, on the 21st of February. The prisoner, who was given an excellent character, was sentenced to two months' imprisonment with hard labour. A Denbigh Appeal Dismissed. Mr R M. Montgomery (instructed by Mr F. J. Gamlin, Rhyl) appealed on behalf of A. C. Clews, brewery director, against the decision of the Den- high justices refusing to renew the licence of the Chirk Castle Arms, Denbigh. Mr Ralph Bankes (instructed by Mr J. Parry Jones) appeared for the respondent justices. Superintendent Hugh Jones proved that there were in the immediate vicinity of the Chirk Castle Arms 22 fully-licensed houses and one off-beer licence The house was, in his opinion, not required. It was, moreover, a very badly- conducted house. Evidence was also given by Sergeants FarreH and Harvey, Police-constable Howell Jones, and several persons, who stated that the house was very badly conducted. For the appellant, it was stated that the present tenant would leave immediately, and a thoroughly respectable person placed in the house. The Bench unanimously upheld the decision of the court below, but expressed sympathy with Mr Clews, and complimented him on the way he gave his evidence.
