The following letter written by Mr Jenkin Rees, Blaenginawr, Cilcenin, was received from the Local Government Board "Blaenginawr, Cil- cennin, Cilie-Aeron, Cardiganshire, 31st Dec., 1900. Dear Sir,-l beg to call your attention to a parish road we have here from Orfaddu to Cilcennin, full of water over it by the place called the Mountain, gale now and then every winter, no chance to pass without going through the water. Christmas night we had it all over the road, and yesterday (Sunday) I had to go through the water in going to chapel and coming homo. Children must go to school through this water: one of the pupil teachers must go through it in the morning, having his feet wet through all day. The post-woman has to go through it many times; and the Vicar of the Parish has been through it in his trap several times. I think it is not right to have water on the parish road like this. I have been down at Aberayron many times before the District Council, and 13 months ago five of them came up to see the place, and the road surveyor with them, and nothing has been done yet. Water is all over the road now and then. David Morgans, Hostelry farmer, living by this road, having three little children going to school through this water, had a summons against the road surveyor before the magistrates the 28th of last month, but the clerk told the beadle that they had nothing to do with the case, and they ad- journed it for a month, and they had the next meeting in three weeks, on December 19th, when David Morgans was not present, so they dismissed the case with costs, and the reason of D. Morgan not being present was because on the 26th he thought the meeting was to be, in a month's time. What are we to do in having this water from the road ? Will you be so kind as to see into this case at once. Yours truly, (Signed) JENKIN REES." Mr T. Davies proposed, and Mr J. C. Jones seconded, that the following reply be made to the Local Government Board:—"That the Council, under favourable conditions (in the month of May) would examine the cause of the flooding of the road, and would endeavour, at a reasonable ex- pense, to deal with the gradients." LABOURER'S WAGES. It was decided that the labourers be paid 2s a yard for broken stones henceforth, and not Is 8d as hitherto. SANITARY. The Medical Officer was requested to supply n special report on the house of John Jenkins, Garden Cottage, Llanon. MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT. The Medical Officer reported that scarlet fever had broken out in Cilie Aeron. It was advisable to close the school in. consequence, but it was of a mild character. SURVEYOR'S REPORT. The Surveyor presented his report. In it he stated that an offer had been made by a gentleman of a substantial, sum towards the purchase of a steam roller for the highways in the district, if the Council defrayed the rest of the cost. Mr J. C. Jones proposed:, and Mr J. M. Howell seconded, that the Surveyor be, requested- to state the sum, offered: before any further steps could be taken. L-EANINA CASE. A letter- baff, at lilst been received from Mr Daniel Watkins, solicitor, Lampeter, giving a full and satisfactory reason for the delay in sending in his taxed bill of costs against the Council in this case. NOTICE OF MOTION. Mr T. A. Lloyd gave notice that be would at the next meeting of the Council propose that the Council should take steps to induce the County Council to convert the road from Penuwch to Aber- arth into a county road. There was no further business of importance.
