PENMAENMAWR URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. MUNIFICENCE OF MEMBERS. The monthly meeting of the above Council i was held on Tuesday, Mr W. D. Jones (chair- man) presiding, and the other members pre- sent were Colonel C. H. Darbishire, Dr. Jen- kins, Mtcsrs R. D. Owen S. Williams, J. R. Williams, R. D. Jones, R. Williams, E. Da- vies, D. Jones, J. S, Coverlev, together with Messrs T. E. Parry (clerk), J. W. Post (deputy- clerk), R. J. Hughes (surveyor), and John Owen (collector). UNIVERSITY GOVERNOR. Dr. J. R. Williams was unanimously re- elected as representative of the Council1 on the Court of Governors of the Bangor University. COLONEL DARBISHIREJS GENEROSITY, The Chairman said that he had a very pleas- ing duty to perform, and that was to propose that the heartiest thanks of the Council and the ratepayers be accorded Colonel Darbishire for the handsome present he had made to the town, namely, the gift of the ne'w footpath, which would undoubtedly prove to be one of the great- est boons ever conferred upon Penmaenmaw,r. By this gift Colonel Darbishiro's generosity and kindness would be remembered by futuro generations (applause). Mr J. R. Williiams, in seconding, said the gift improved the district, and provided for the safety of little children attending the schools. He thought it was the best-made pavement in Penmaenmawr (hear, hear). The vote of thanks having been carried with enthusiasm, Colonel Darbiehire briefly respond- ed. DR. WILLIAMS' GIFTS. The Chairman called Attention to the his- torical pictures of old Penmaenmawr. which were hung on the wails of the Council' Cham- ber. which had been presc*Ted by Dr. J. R. Williams, and to whom he moved a vote of thanks. Mr Samuel Williams seconded, and it was carried unanimously. THE POSTAL FACILITIES. Mr R. D. Jones called attention to the postal facilities of the town, and expressed that they at Penmaenmawr were being grossly neglected by the Postmaster-General. He found that in the Conway district there were three postal deli- veries each day, and in a small place like Gvffin they could post letters after 11 o'clock at night, for delivery next morning; and in the town of Conway they could post as late as mid- night. He suggested that the Council should appeal to their members of Parliament., draw- ing their attention to the injustice cf the present arrangements to Penmaenmawr. He also pro- posed that they should again write to the Post- master-General, as well as to Mr Lloyd George, to see if something could not be done. Mr R. D. Owen seconded. He had been told that the reason they had such facilities at Con- way was because there was late pasting at Llan- dudno, and the Llandudno letters were brought to the Junction. Conway, being so near the Junction, therefore. got the extra facilities. At the same time ho thought the Council should press for some improvement in the postal facili- ties of the town. The Chairman suggested that the matter be deferred pending a further reply from the Post- master-General. and this was agreed to. VITAL STATISTICS. It was reported that the number of births at Penmaenmawr during the month of October was 7, and the deaths 1. AN IMPROVEMENT. Upon the recommendation of the Estates Com- mittee, it was decided that the land of "Coll Gwy,nfa" "hou:d be enclosed with a boundary wall and a quick-thorn hedge.
