HOPE. HOPE AND HAWARDEN HIGHWAY BOARD.—A meeting of this board was held on Tuesday at Hope. Present: Mr.Roberts tSaltney), in the chair, Messrs. ] J. Blanthorn, R. C. Griffiths, W. Thorn, R. Picker- ing, Edwin Edwards, T. Maddocks, T. Williams, J. ] Eaton, E. Jones.and P.P. Morgan, Mr. W. Hancock, i ex-officio. At the last meeting a letter was read from 1 Messrs. Kelly and Keane, Mold, on behalf of the] trustees of the Mold and Broughton turnpike trust giving the Board notice that it would be necessary i for them to purchase the old toll houses at Broughton and Dirty Mile. A committee had been commissioned by the Board to report on the condi- tion of the houses and they had recommended that the houses should be purchased. The report of the newly appointed surveyor was read and at the cou- clusion he remarked that a great deal might be done towards repairing the roads by trimming the hedges also clearing the ditches at the side of them. The Board then gave the orders for a large quantity of metals for repairing the roads. Daring the conversation which followed the report one of the members asked if it was right for mill wagons from Wrexham to lock their wheels whilst going down the hills and having no slipper under them. The clerk said it was illegal, and further, that at soma future time proceedings would be taken against some of the owners of those large vehicles traversing the roads. The Board signed preceipts for rates to meet the expenses of the working. The subject of money paid out of pocket for labour- by the late surveyor before the formation of the Board as well as for materials was again mentioned. Several of the waywardens have paid for work done and also for materials but the new act forbids the re-piyment to them of a larger sum than £ o. Twc or three persons are therefore several pounds out of pocket and are liable for more. The Board now decided to ask those waywardens to present their accounts at the next meeting; and instructed the clerk to look up the law on the subject. The meet- ing then concluded.
