PORTHCAWL DISTRICT COUNCIL u- MR. GRACE'S ACCOUNT: THE CHEQUE DECLINED. There were present at the fortnightly meeting of the Porthcawl Urban Council on Monday evening, Messrs. W. J. Griffin, J.P. (chairman), John Grace, David Jones, J. L. Lambert, John Elias (Newton), Jas. Coombs, H. B. Comley, John Elias (Nottage), and Watkin Bassett, with the deputy clerk (Mr. W. Chorley), and the surveyor and inspector (Mr. Rhys W. Jones). SHELTER. Mrs. E. Herne and Mrs. L. B. Alexander, the secretaries of the Bandstand and Shelter Committee, wrote that the committee would accept the offer of the Council of a site on the esplanade, opposite the Tennis Field, for the shelter to be presented to the Council. CHEQUE DECLINED. The Clerk read a letter from Mr. Grace returning a cheque for £1 15s., which he de- clined to accept. This was the matter which gave rise to a heated discussion at the last meeting, the account being for carriage hire. Mr. Elias (Nottage): As one of the mem- bers who voted against the payment, I have pleasure in moving that it be accepted back. Mr. D. Jones moved that the letter be re- ferred to the Finance Committee for con- sideration, Mr. J. Elias (Newton), seconding, said the Finance Committee had previously discussed the bill and unanimously resolved to pay it, and he had no doubt that the same decision would again be arrived at. There had been some misunderstanding regarding this mat- ter, and it was a pity it had been discussed as it had. It was legally due. to Mr. Grace, and should be paid. The motion to refer the letter to the com- mittee was carried, Messrs. Grace and Elias (Nottage) dissenting, while Mr. Lambert did not vote. Mr. Bassett had not arrived. ST. MARY STREET. Mr. Jonathan Thomas again wrote with reference to the plans he had submitted for four houses he proposed to erect in St. Mary Street. He asked for the permission of the Council to take up some old drains and to bring out" the line of frontage. Mr. Elias (Newton) proposed that the Works Committee consider the matter. Something might be done with regard to the old drains, but the line of frontage would certainly have to be adhered to. The motion was carried. AERIAL RAILWAY. The Works Committee, having further con- sidered the application of the Aerial Railway Company for a site for a railway at Porth- cawl, recommended that the olerk reply to the effect that the Council had no suitable land to offer. On the motion of Mr. Elias (Nottage), the reoommendation was adopted. AN ACCIDENT. The Works Committee had considered the letter from Mr. W. H. Davies, of the School of Music, who met with a slight accident while walking on the esplanade, owing to there being no fence or other protection along the sea wall opposite the Pier Hotel. The committee recommended that the clerk write Mr. H. Jones, estate agent of the Great Western Railway Co., Neath, asking for information as to the ownership of the ground in front of the hotel. This recommendation was adopted. The Surveyor was instructed to prepare an estimate of the cost of erecting a fence in front of the Pier Hotel. RESIGNATION. The Finance Committee reported that Mr. H. B. Comley had resigned the chairmanship of the Committee, and Mr. John Elias (New- ton) had been appointed in his place. THE ESPLANADE. Mr. Comley moved that the seal of the Council be affixed to the contract with Messrs. Smith and Co., Westminster, for the extension of tne improved sea wall at the esplanade, the contract price being JE609. Mr. Elias (Newton) seconded, and the mo- tion was agreed to. Messrs. Smith and Co. wrote that they in- tended commencing the work that day, and it was stated that preliminary operations had already been commenced. RAILWAY STATION. The Chairman moved that the clerk write Mr. Inglis asking whether he could now give some definite reply to the request of the Council regarding the railway station accom- modation. Mr. Elias (Newton), seconding, said the Council should keep pegging away at the Company." The Company must know of the great inconvenience which passengers to and from Porthcawl had to put up with, and it was useless denying that the place had not suffered. Mr. Elias (Nottage) supported the motion, which was agreed to.
