BRIDGEND LOCAL BOARD. UNEASY UNDER CRITICISM. The ordinary meeting of the board wus held on Tuesday. Mr W McGaul presided, and there were also present: Messrs W M Richards, Ll Wallino-ton E Rich, M Davies, W Francis, W Powell, and D Lewis; the Clerk (Mr T J Hughes), the Surveyor (Mr M Williams), and the Medical Officer (Dr Randall). THE OVERDRAFT. The Finance Committee reported an overdraft of £258 3s. THE AUDIT. The Clerk stated the audit had been held, and all the balances had been found correct. He explained that the increase in the amount of the audit stamp from £ 5 to £10 was due to the abnormally increased expenditure of the board, principally by reason of the cemetery loan. In reply to the Chairman he said he was afraid the same necessity would arise at the next audit, but not afterwards. DEVELOPMENT OF THE TOWN. Plans of the following new buildings were passed- z, 4 cottages for the Rechabite Society, and 4 for Mr J Gregory and Mr W Thomas in Caedre-street, two villas in Park-street for Messrs Milveen and T Edwards a villa in Merthyrmawr road for Mrs C E Townsend; a stable at the rear of Mr T D Scho- field's house in Park-street, a house in Randall- street for Mr T Williams, a coach-house and W.C. for Mr Warner in Ewenny-road, two houses in Randall-street by Mr Speck; one house in Coity- road for Mr D Williams. BREACHES OF BYE-LAWS. The breaches of the bye-laws on the part of Mr P Gaylard in the case of the alterations to the National School and of Mr Gregory in Caedre- street having been remedied, it was decided not to proceel with the prosecutions ordered. TENDERS. On the recommendation of the Works Committee the following tenders were accepted for the year ending March next :—Plumbing and materials, Messrs Hitt and Sons tools, Messrs W Buckley and Company; the tender of Mr D Lewis, Cowbridge- road was accepted for shoeing the board's horses and steeling the tools. TYPHOID IN PARK STREET. On the Surveyor's report a discussion incidentally took place as to the origin of the recent case of typhoid in Park-street, and it was suggested that the infec- tion was conveyed by the servant-girl from her home in Wyndbam-street. The Chairman had no hesitation in saying that the case was conveyed in the manner suggested. Dr Randall: I notice there is very little hesita- tion about Mr MeGaul on the most difficult medical questions. The Chairman They are not medical questions; tbey are common-sense questions. The Surveyor was directed to visit every house situated on the Coity-brook, and to report to the next meeting. The Medical Officer was also requested to at once notify the Surveyor of all cases of infectious disease and to attend the meeting of the board immediately follrwing. DRAINAGE AND FLUSHING. On the report of the Surveyor, attention was called to the fact that there were a large number of houses in the district without drain-flushing apparatus. Mr Davies suggested that perhaps the Surveyor did not report them. The Chairman I take it that he ia a different man to that. Mr Davies: It as open to that construction. Mr Powell, in reply to a remark said he thought members of the board who had property which was defective in sanitation, should be the first to be reported. The Surveyor mentioned that one member of the board had already bean obliged to provide flushing apparatus for his property. ilr Davies I have not to thank the Surveyor for any favours. It would have been a good job for me if I had never been a member of the board. The Surveyor was directed to make a hftuse to house visitation for the purpose of ascer- taining the houses without flushing apparatus, com- meucing first with Nolton-street and the streets leading off. THE CEMETERY APPROACH. f A communication was read from Mr A. J. illiains intimating that as the result of his laying tha matter before his sister she had assented to the proposed alteration by the board in the cemetery approach. On the motion of the Chairman a vote of thanks was accorded Mr Williams for his kind offices in the matter. THE CLERK'S SALARY. It was decided to defer the question of the salary to be paid to the Clerk as clerk to the new Burial Board. Mr Powell said perhaps they could not proceed too carefully in the matter, since they were found so often in the wrong. The Chairman: By who by ? Mr Powell: It is hardly necessary to ask the question. Mr Davies Who by not ? gThe Chairman It does not trouble me. I don't lose any sleep over it. ABATEMENT OF NUISANCES. A number of orders were made both on the Sur- rayor's and Medical Officer's reports for the abate- ment of nuisances.
