FORDEN RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL. W E D N E S D A Y A special meeting of the Council was held for the purpose oi' tnkiog into consideration the berriew Water Nr:" ::ie Bei ore commencing the bosi- ness of t.K- ee.i;v,o\cr, the Vauirnian (Mr J.

No one regarded the late Colonel Harrison wirh greater admiration and respect than he did. He moved that the Council convey to Mrs Harrison and family the sympathy which > lie Council felt with them in their ¡ bereavement.- Mr E. H'.uhcs, in seconding, en- dorsed nil that had been said by the Chairman. Everyone regretted tuat so excellent a gentleman had been called away, whereby the county suffered a great loss.—Mr J. Edwards, in supporting the motion. said that a truer gentleman in evert respect than the late Col. Harrison could not be found. Air W. Pritchard also bore testimony to the late Colonel's business capacity.—The motion was carried in silence.—The Clerk reported the result of his interviews with the various owners in con- nection with the Berriew Water Supply scheme. From a letter from All- Reynards, he understood that that gentleman would consent, provided that rhe other owners bore their proper share of the expense. Major Corbett-Winder expressed his willingness to join in the expense with the other owners, on certain conditions. He did not consider that the supply from Ladywell would be sufficient. .Some guarantee should be given that it would be sufficient. He was of opinion that the School trustees should pay more than the actual rateable value, because the children attending the school came from the whole parish. The Clerk also read a letter from Rev W. L. Martin, stating that as he was only a life tenant he was in a different position from the other owners. He (the Clerk) had also seen Miss Gough, who stated that the distance which her tenants had to go to fetch water was only short, and she was not willing to contribute. I If she was compelled, she had a pump which she would open to her tenants. The Clerk further reported that as the Talbot Well was not con- demned, Major Corbet-Winder would not be chargeable on that. He (the Clerk) suggested if a small committee was appointed to wait on Major Corbet-Winder to satisfy him that the Ladywell supply was sufficient, that gentleman womd forego other matters.—Dr Wilson (representing Dr Thurs- field) stated that he had calculated the amount of water for a parish containing 35 houses, with a population of 175. Supposing it. would take 10 gallons per head, 1,750 gallons would be required every day, which would be more than ample for the parish.—On the motion of Mr J. Edwards, the Berriew Councillors, together with the Surveyor and Inspector, were appointed a committee to ascertain if the supply at Ladywell was sufficient, and to wait on Major Corbet-Winder respecting the questions raised by him.
