The Clerk reported that he had r,t,einea a leliel frwm the Rev. Jone" -Eat email, who said that if t hre a strong .foeiing on the part of a majority uf the people for the removal of the trees he would by aid his own individual opinion, but as there appeared tc be a strong feeling gainst the course sug-gestod by the majority of th."

The Chairman said that under the ei".7im>nia:u-es he felt there was nothing further to i>e done ether than t J reoord their appreciation of the c ur:cnii le: Ur rCè>œ voo. Mr W. P. Morris thought the Counjil thonld go fur- ther with- the matter. Ho felt that 3 >m",me had been in communication with the Rev. Ihijiun en the subject, and he moved that the Council should take t'he matter in hand for the purpose of ascertain- ing who had interposed in the matter. Mr II. E. Priiehard said there nlS no evidence of til? Rev. Jones-Bateman having been approached in the ma[tr, and if anyone had knowledge of such, a course having been taken it was their duty to bncj it before the Council. Mr W. J. Evans aaid there was certainly nothing in the lol-.or to show that anyone outside tjie Council had approached the Rev. Jones-Ba.tcar.an on the subject, and if the rev. gentlemen hid read the press reports b,?, ytci,ild have seen at onc,) that the Council were nut agreed on the course which the majority had decided to adopt. Mr John Edwards (Tanyfron) pointed out that there was a elrong feeling in the town against the removal of the trco-3. No action wa3 taken on Mr Morris' motion, but on a U.ter being read from the tenant of Penticni^wr itating that he had bsen approached by ratepayers not t" consent to t.he removal of the trees, and that in hij opinion tne people we:-e right, Mr W. P. Morris contended that it was leai someone hftd been ititcr- posirijf in the ma Iter. PREPARING FOR THE SEASON. A letter was read from Mr T. P. Wood asking for tho sole right to provide a minstrel or p'errot troupe for the foreshore and streets for next year. Mr W. P. Morris moved that the Council do not grant the so'.e right, to any one entertainer. He pointed out tlLlt the Advertising Association' of the town was at the present time seriously considering the advisa- bility of fakiiig- stops to secure the presence of a band in Pen ara and Abergele for two or three nights each week next season. In feet it had been suggested that the Llanddulas Ban.1 should be engaged, and anything that tiie Council might now do would interfere with the arrangements, which would be for the benefit of the whole district. No one seconded Mr Morris, but Mr J. Edwards said that there was a great dea.1 :n what that gcntlsman said, and it was well-known tihat some of the visitors to Ponaarn objected to entertainments on the fore-shore. IL was decided to defer the matter for the present, and for the clerk to communicate with the Advertising Association in order to ascertain what steps tliev are Taking in the matter of entertainments. THE LATE LADY FLORENTIA HUGHES. A Mer was read from Mr It R. Hughes of Kinmel, thanking tlie Council for their kind expression of sym- pathy with him and his family in their bereavement, and for the beautiful wreath they had sent to tho funeral of the late La-dy Florentia Hughes. The Chairman said that was the first occasion the Council had had of publicly expressing their sympathy with the Kinmel fainry, and of their appwiaUon of the kindliness which had always characterised the de- oeaied lady, who had always had the welfare of Aber- gele at heart. He proponed that the clerk convey to Mr Hughes and his family an expression of their deep- est sympathy. Mr W. J. Evans seconded, and said that in the late Lady Florentia Hushes they had had a kind friend, and her death would be a serious loss to the district. riis -ict. It was comforting to know that the Misses Hughes had for some years been associated wi-tll liit-ir mother in charitable works, and he was sure they would continue the good work she had done (hear, hear). The resolution was carried by all prfeseni unstandin- CONDOLENCE WITH A COUNCILLOR. The Chairman also moved that a vote of condolence be sent to Councillor Thomas on the death ot his brother. Mr Perkins seconded,and this was also carried. A ItUUAL COUNCILLOR AND THE SANITARY SYSTEM. Mr W. P. Morris referred to a newspaper report of certain remarks made by Mr Ttioa. Evans at the St. Aaaph Rural Distriot Council on the subject of the Urban Council's letter respecting the state of Towyn Head. Mr Evans had suggested that the Urban Couri- i clif would be better employed attending to their sani- tary system. Mr Morris oomplainod that such were calculated to injure the district from a sanitary point, of view, as it was a health resort. He contended that the statement that the main drain was at times blocked was incorrect. The Surveyor said that. during the ten years he had been in Abergele he had no knuw^aJffe of the main drain being blocked. Mr Pritchard said it was helr duty as representa- tives of the ratepayers to ask 51r Thos. Evans to either prove or withdraw nis statement. He had never heard that the main drain had been blocked, or that there was anything wrong with the system. During the past few years they had spent a great deal of money on UI sanitary systcini, and they had had the tanks put right and eleaned out regularly. He wou'd point out that matters were now quite different to what thof'lY were when Mr Evans was a member of that Council. Mr Johii Ed wants (Tanyfron) said ho h:11 sugg-esied that they should deal with the matter in committee, but. as they had decided otherwise he was bound to express his view. He was bound to say from what he knew that there was a blockage of the main sewer, which was a menace to health. Mr H. 1- Pritchard said that what- Mr Evans re- ferred to was the natural course of things. When there were heavy rains in the district, and the tide hap- pened to be in at the timo the water backed up the sower, but that was of rare occurrence, and could not be avoided. Mr J. Edwards denied that that was the cause. If what Mr Pritchard said was true the water would show itself in the first place in the manholes on the lower levels, but it did w.l do so. The fault really lay in their having much larger pipes entering the tanks than those leaving it. The Council decided to ask Mr Evans to substantiate whit he had said, or U> publiclv withdraw tlie samt. TELEPHONIC COMMUNICATION WITH THE STATION M the last mealing of the Council it waa decided to ask the Railway Company to connect the Pensarn i>tatktfi with the National Telephone service, but Mr Warner now replied stating that the company could not see their way to acocde to the request. It was decided to ask the special committee having oharge of railway matters to go into the question, and to ask for an interview with Mr Warner.
