I ABERGELE URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. THE SUGGESTED REMOVAL OF TREES IN DUNDONALD AVENUE. THE SANITARY SYSTEM. The monthly meeting of the above Council was held on Monday evening, Mr Ed. Williams, J.P., presiding, and there wo:e also prevent Messrs G. Perkins, H. E. Tritchard, W. J. Evans, 1. Mori is, Jchn Edwards (Pen- sarii), J. Edwards (Tanyfron), W. it. Jones, W. Hum- phreys Jones, J. Tierce, W. P. Morris, J. Hannah, I. Hoberf-s, Thos. Davies, Mr E. A. Crabbe (clerk), and Mr M. n. Jones (surveyor nd sanitary i!Jspe<or)- THE TREES IN DUNDONALD A YEN I i E. At lho last mzt,i!go of the COHncil there "3 a c¡¡,usz;.an as to the irancAal of the tices in IundcnalJ Avenue from the ioviway to rhe fields, arid letters v-cie d;reoted to be sent to the Rev. Jones-Batenun (the I owiicr of the lund), and to the occupier of the iurm I asking if fchcy would consent to the planting of inside th0 fenev. 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." Council he oould nc.t give his consent. 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.

OLD COLWYN ELECTEIC CARS. COMMISSIONERS' INQUIRY AT COLWYN BAY. ROADWAY TO BE 24ft. WIDE. PROMOTERS TO ACQUIRE LAND FOR WIDENING. The Light Railway Commissioners conduct- ed a public inquiry in the Colwyn Bay Coun- cil Chamber, on Saturday, with reference ro the proposed extension of the tra.mway from Groea Bridge. at the fa.r end of Ahergele- road—the authorised terminus at Colwyn Bay —to the Queen's Iloto-l, O'd Colwyn. Colonel Boughey, R.E., presided, a.nd Mr H. Allan Steward was the other commissioner, Mr Alan D. Erskine attending as secretary w the Commissioners. There was a representative gathering of ratepayers, whilst the Colwyn Bay Council w represented by Messrs D. Ga-nble, J.P. (chairman), George Bevan, D. O. Williams, Hugh Hughes, T. E. Puidy, George dare, Jos. Dick en., Wm. Hughes, Win. Davies, Wm. Horton, Ed. Allen, Hugh Davies, B;rth Jo::es, James Amphlett (soiioitor-olerlp, Jos. H. R-o- t,ert.s (deputy-clerk a.nd accountant), and Wm. Jones, A.M. Inst. C.E, (engineer and sur- veyor). Mr Stephen Sellon (chairman of the direc- tors) and Mr Offer appeared for the Tram- way Company; Mr James Porter (Messrs Porter, Amplitett and Co., Conway, Colwyn Bay, and Lianrw.st), for Sir John E. Barlow, Bart., M.P.-whc) has a residence on the line of route; and Mr Janes Amphlet-t acted on behalf of the Colwyn Bay Council and tlie Denbighshire Council. Colonel Boughoy, in opening the inquiry, stated that after the hearing on November Gth, 1907, the Commissioners decided that the Abergele-road, along which it was proposed to lay the railway, should be widened at various points, but the further proceedings were adjourned in order to see if reasonable arrangoment-s could be made for the widen- ing. Two years had since elapsed, and ap- parently the parties had not come to terms. It was, therefore, neccssary that the case Should be proceeded with. THE COUNCILS' CASE. Mr Amphlett, for the two Councils, said the railway now ended at the top of Station- road, but the order of 1907 authorised the extension of tho line to Groes Bridge. It was at first intended that the line hould terminate at what might be called Sir John Barlow's corner, but for some reason the order required it to end at the bridge. Every effect had boen made by the Council to corns to ternils witli the promoters, whom they had met several times, and with whom there had been a .voluminous correspondence. They had failed for the reason that the promoters endeavoured to put upon the Council the onus of acquiring the land needed for widening purposes. An agreement between the pa.rlios which was embodied in the order of 1907 pro- vided that the Council should, in considera- tion of their receiving from t,hc promotetrs the sum of £:>000, carrying out the work of widening required as far as Sir John Ba.r- I low's corner, but they were not to be called upon to acquire f.r v 'of the land needed for such widening. The Council had already ex- pended < £ 600 on account of widenings between the present terminus aud Groes Bridge, a.nd they had been paid of that amount 1383, but the company, through MJ. Sell on, now threatened not to construct another yard of the line, and so to deprive the Council of the i'3000. Moreover,, the present terminus at the top of Station-road was most incon- venient. There was very heavy traffic there, and it was cot unusual to see three or four motor cars awaiting to pass. Mr Selion said tho company preferred to con- struct th.o railway right through to Old Colwyn .on. at one o[>eration. Mr Amphilett: Does Mr Solion now say he has not distinctly told the Council that if he docs no* construct to Old Cohvyn he not proceed to G roes? Mr Sellom: I said thai, an'ess we got tho lino to Okl Colwyn tho l:ne to Groes was not worth carrying out. Mr Amphlett: And never would be constructed, and therefore we would never get our £ 3000. That was clearly stated in this room. Mr Steward (to Mr A.mpb'stt): You must not be too easily frightened (laughter). The order says they have got to build the whole. Mr Amphlett: I don't think I am easily fright- ened—(renewed laughter)-—but I do not know any means which I ooukl adopt to compel tho company to complete to Groes. It is very un- fortunate that- promoters should be ah:-e to get the Commissioners and the BoIrd of Trade to authorise a railway between points locally ap- proved _af, that they should then suit their own convenience by stopping shore of there points, and that they should then refuse to extend to the terminus which was agreeable to the locality ex- cept upon their own terms. The Chairman: That is not the position under tho order. 1\1, A U.a T1..1 .J..L- n: • t ur aiiiiiui™ v L. !ij hw pusirjon in wnien the promoters are putting us, and I aitti not aware of any means of compelling them to carry out. their obligations without a penalty. The Chairman: Something- would happen when their order expires Mr Amphlett, proceeding, said he asked that if an order were issued for an extension to OM Colwyn there should be a substantial penalty imposed upon the company if the conditions laid down by tho order were not complie.d with with- in the stipulated time. The road along which the line would be laid was the main road be tween Cheater and Holyhead, and the traffio u.pon it in the season was very great- The population of the urba.n district had grjwn from 8000 in 1901 to 14,600 a the present day. For t.ha,t reason the Council believed tha.t the r iad should be wid-an,ed as it was pressed, but The Council desired heartily to support tho railway scheme. EVIDENCE OF THE CH AIRMAN OF THE COUNCIL. Mr D. Gamble, chairman of the Council, gave evidence for tho Council, and said lie thought ttio road between the steam laundry and the Queen's Hotel was very inadequate to accommodate tho trams as the thoroughfare wad at present formed. Several country roaja led into it. The Council had done thcjr best to meet the company over that qu,-st,io.-i.an-d had met specially on the previous night to try and settle matters. Judging from exr^rience of t he cars ini Conway-road, which was much wider than tho Old Co;wyn-road, the result would be congestion of traffic and great danger to the people using the road Questioned bv Mr Sellon, Mr Gamble said ho did not. have the figures of tiro narrowest nart of the Conway-road at hand, but ho believed (hat at one point it was about 19-ft, wide. He had not heard of personal injuries from the tram traffic during the time the cars had been run- ning, but there bad been accidents. Further questioned, witness said the Council had agreed to support the promotion cf tho tramway to Old Colwyn in 1907, and they were still ready to do so. Ho was not chairman of the Council in 1907, but, he b'lieved the Council had at that, time raised a question about road wldejwngs- M..r Seikm But the question was raised by cthor witnesses, not by the Council. Mr Amphlett: But the question was reserved in order that. an agreement should be come to beitween the Council and the prom o:ors. Mr Sellon: The question was raised by ince pendout witnesses, who gave a pious expression of op 1-n ion upon the point- The Chairman said the point was not worth bothering much &bout it. Wit'h reference to the agreement between the Council and tho company, Mr Sellon asked whether in Mr Gamble's opinion the £3000 which the company agreed to pay the Council for oortain widening^ was meant for the whole of the line to Old Colwyn? Mr Gamble lept'ed, "Decidedly not." How fa.r did it extend? asked Mr Sellon. To Sir John Barlow's corner, was the prompt repJ y. Were you on the Council whe.n that agreement was made?—I was on the Council, but not on the committee which dealt wit.h the matler, though, of course, I knew generally what waa going on. Are you responsible for the present plan as far as the details are concerned?—No; the sur- veyor drew it out by the ordor of the Coureil, and the Council adopted it. Did you give Mr Jones, the surveyor, any in- structions as to the width of the road and tho oathways?—Not personally. It was the com mittee's duty to do that. Mr Amphlett, interposing, remarked that the committee had gone over the route with tho surveyor, and decided that a 6-ft. feo'.oit'i was insufficient for the route; hence the suggestion that the paths be 9-ft. wide, and the roadway 30 feet. THE SURVEYOR'S VIEWS. Mr William Jones, surveyor to the Council, gavo Uakqioftl evidoooe bearing upon the widtia of the roadway at varioue, points, and detoribod in detail the widenings which tho Council su. gested should be carried cut in order to safe- guard the interests of the public. At Sir John, iia-rlow's corner the wid,h of the road was 12ft, and it narrowed in tho d rcctien of O.d' Colwyn to 19ft, and ultimately to Eft. 6in. C", The Chairman: Part of the original onir: provided that this part be widened to 22ft. 6! and nothing was raised at the trrno against that. Mr Aniiih.'ett: I tji- it was rais-d, and an agreement was entered into between Sir John Barlow and tho promoters. Mr So'Ion: No, Mr Am-phleit; that is not so. Mr Jongs, cros3-examined, said he proposed that tho road should be made nearly throughout 30ft. wide. The cost of the work required, ex- clusive of tb3 land, would be about £ 2,474. I Mr Joruee wis questioned as to ca.seei where portions or gardens in frcnt of residences would bo needed, and Mr &cHon suggested that it would bj very expensive to obtain tbem. Mr Steward: And we liavo been reading such I dreadful thing's ad to the cost cif land required by oomipanieL; (laughter). It appeared thait a portion of the churchyard at Old Cdwyu was suggested aj required, but Mr Amnhlatt suggested that th'3 difficulty of obtaining ooncccivuted ground might; be over- come by effecting the widening on tho other side of the road. In reiply to Mr Sellon, tho witnees said the groat, idea of the wldernngs was ati to the danger of sjpoed, but lie knew that the apeed of motor-oars could be limited by Law. It was true that tho Council recently licensed a motor 'bus belonging to the London and Nort.h- VVcistem Railway Company, but the Council made no stipulation as to the speed of tho motor 'bus, nor did the Council call upon the London and North-Weostern Railway Company to effect any widening of the road (laughter). Mr Arruphlebt: ri; Ikotioo granted for the motor 'bmJ was for one year only, and could be withdrawn if it, were abused or if the traffic proved to be objectionable. Mr J. M. Porter (Messrs J. M. Porter and Eloeok. surveyors, etc., Cohvyn Ha, a member of the County Council, a.nd Mr Adams, trie county f,¡¡,rh\Or, supported tho Council's case. Mr Sellon, alluding to the statement, of Mr Amphk-tt that £ 600 had been expended on widen- ing, ciaid he had not been advised by Mr Armphlctt that. any further money b. been laid out on that account since he tent the cheque for ;E-W. If he ha.d been the m-uii'jy would have been provided. Mr AmphWt said he t,ot.ally die-agreed with the contention of Mr Sellon on that point. Mr Jar.ieu Porter, on beihaLf of Sir John Barlow, askod that in the event of an Q:èr3T ba- ^'ranted, the protective cl-auees originally ap- proved of would b3 reinstated. The Chairman said that would be done- A PLEA FOR CONCILIATION. Mr Kent, on behalf of the proprietors of the Quean's Hotel, trad other* pleaded earnestly tor a conciliatory disposition on both sides. It would O;) a. very serious thing to Old Colwyn if, owing to demands of the local authority, the pro- potod extension was diojtped. In re-ply to Mr AmpMeit, Mr Kent said that liia client ha.d no dbubt pressed for a widening of tbe road opiposite tho Queen's Hotel owing to tho heavy traffic, but he did not know that his ciliien,t had refused to contribute 1;50, which was half of the coet. Mr Amiphlott: I may tell you tha.t he did (laughter). Mr Kent: It ie the duty of local authorities to widen tlie roads where necessary, them- selveo. Mr Sellon, on behaJf of tlhe promotiera, said that the line was strapped a.t Groee Bridge by the Board of Trade. The Council made it a m,r,d 't-icn that the lino GhouM g'o on to Old Cohvyn, and t.h.o Company showed on their plans an extension to that plaoe. but provided for no widening. The Company were quite ready to make a contribution towards the (n of 1-an.d, such a contribution as they could afford; but it was not jiart of his duty to agree to con- struct il line which meant bankrupt^- as far as that siely-.me was oonoemed. l,t was a mon- strous proposal that he should make a 30:t. wide roadway and provide a 9ft. wide footpath in additkwi. Ilia experience enabled him to eay tha;t lie could not possibly pay tho sum which It had1 bc, n s^geeted he" should pay the Coun- cil for works and in addition ouv all the Land. No doubt for the purpo e of public iinp-oveer.ent: all t.lii-s was deairahlc, but it was absurd to eay it was essential to the provkion of a. tramway. Tina Chairmaul said that the Commissioners liad to deoide whiat oonditions slieujd be im- posed before the line oould he san-etion-ed. Thev wieire satisfied that tho extension would not. bear aJiythinij on account of general public improve- ments, and they had therefore decided to grant an order, in which tho oondirion would be in- serted that where any land could be cbtained &t. a mvonable oont Company should be re- quired to acquire such an amount as -would widen the road to 24 feet, plus replacing' the footpath where ally existed, and plus a 6ft. footpath where noiis -existed already- The Com- pa:i.y were not to be compelled to buy any bouses. Narrow places would have to be passed tuuler the double-line sy^tain, subject to any Board of Trade resitriiatwni). as to opsed, etc. Of course, the Conami^ioners hoped that the ooudiitioim now hud down would enable the parties to oome to a friendly agreement with the Cooiuoil, so that in the case where it. was thought to widen the road to SO feet the Company oould j>ay for the land up to 24 feet and the Coiuic.l for the remainder.

Tlie on trice for the annual show number 715, while those for the other two shows wore satisfactory. The financ-La! result of the year s jyorking did not reach expectations, Que in some measure to the liberal amount of prize money offered. The committee have very carefully revised the sohcdule for vW, and although the prize money in some classes has beeai reduced, they do not anticipate a.ny of entries in consoquence, feeling sure that all competitors will support them in their endeavours to carry on the society with- out a monetary loss.

On Saturday evening the members of the I Executive Committee were entertained to ) dinner at CartmeJl's Restaurant, where they II wore served with an appéisillg repast and a thoroughly enjoyable miscellaneous pro- gramme. Interesting features of the table decorations wore some robust and beautifully- coloured specimens of "Dorothy Perkins/' which had been growing in the open air at Colwyn Ba.y within ten days of Christmas surely proof enough of the excellent climatic conditions of the place. Mr T. E. Purdy (chairman of the com- mittee) presided over the after-dinner pro- ceedings, and he was accompanied at the head of the tabic by Mr W. H. Bourne (hoa. • treasurer), Mr J. Faulkner, and Mr R. Jack- son (Station-road). After the loyal toasts had been honoured, the Chairman submitted that of "The Society. In the course of his remarks Mr Purdy said it was his firm conviction that the society had come to stay (hear, hear). It was now in a very healthy condition, and,, with the energy of the active and influentiil committee administering its affairs, it could ) not but be a.n unqualified success. Long might the society continue to be a benefit to Colwyn Bay (cheers). He was very proud to be chairman of the committee; he looked forward to their monthly meetings which he thought were attended with a faithfulness and promptitude that would do credit to most other bodies in the district (he-ar, hear). Mr Purdy gave a retrospective sketch of the progress made by the society during the last six years, and referred to the work to be carried out during the ooming year. With regard to the two-days show to be held, by tlie permission of Councillor Wm. Horton, at Bryn Dinarth, he remarked that Mrs Horton had undertaketn to provide teas on the grounds a.t a small charge, the proceeds to go in aid of a local charity. Mr Charles Hartley, in responding, said he had beesn at the first meeting v.ihc-j the society was formed, and he had watched progress ever since. It was worthy of note that a.t their first annual show they had one tent, and that at the last, the sixth, exhibi- tion they had six tents, and if they made bhe same progress, namely at the rate of a tent per year, in tlie future six years they would have a show second to none in the kingdom (ohoers). Speaking as a practical gardener, he was glad to state that, after making very careful comparisons, the quality and char- acter of the local exhibits at the last Colwyn Bay show were every bit as good as and in some instances better tha.n those at the last Shrewsbury dhow (hear, hear). The Shrewsbury exhibition was superior in point of trade exhibits, but, having regards for the promises aliT\ady made, there was good rea- son to believe that next year the Shrews- ] bury show would have to look to its laurels, I 'I oven in a. at department (cheers and laughter). 'lho health of Mr David Gamble, the presi- I dent of the -society, was cordially honoured, 011 the motion of Mr Jackson, Mr Fernley appropriately responding. I In proposing "The Chairman," Mr A. Biakeman said that if t.hey canvassed the whole of Colwyn Bay, with its numerous amateur gardeners, thc-y could never find a better chairman than Mr Purdy, who had rendered excellent services to the society (chcers). The toast was musically honoured. Mr Purdy responded briefly, and said ]--a Vvovjd ever oonhinue Co do all he could in the interests of tlie society, and so long as h? was chairman lie meant to stick to the ship a.nd steer it as straight as he could to- wards success (applause). At intervals songs and recitations were given by Messrs W. J. Dunning, Wm. Green- field, D. Sutton, R. Jackson, W. Hartley,, and others, whilst a number of gramophone selections were given by Mr J. Faulkner upon his exceedingly tine instrument. Mr W. Hartley accompanied efficiently, and the whole programme, arranged by Mr W. J. Dunning, was sustained with complete sucoess. I
