BRIDGEND DISTRICT COUNCIL. I There were present at the fortnightly meeting of the Bridgend Urban Council on Tuesday evening: Messrs. R. C. Griffiths, J. G. Jenkins, Edward Preett?, juivr., George Karris, George Bovau, H. Abbott. W. Jours. Morgan Str a tiling, and W. Edwr rds, with the clerk (Aldernian- T. J. Hughe-,), the surveyor (Mr. W. F. Tudor), and the electrician (Mr. T. Thomas). WATER ANALYSIS. The Clerk statN1 that he nad forwarded the certificate of the anahst respecting the bac- teriological examination of a sample of water taken from a tap in. the Council's yard to the manager of the Gas and Water Co., and Mr. Dyer replied that it would not be possible to account fcr the difference between this sample and a previous one taken- from the same tap. He thought it might be that, as the main in this street had a dead end near by the tap used, it had not been flushed close to the tap and debris lodged there, as shown in tho analysis. The filtration, he stated-, constant.—Mr. Harris. thought the Coun- cil should know when and how the main was flushed.—The clerk was directed to request information on this point. HEALTH OF THE TOWN. The Surveyor reported that there had been no notification of infectious disease in the town for the fortnight.—Mr. Jenkins: Can the surveyor state Avbether there were any cases of typhoid in the town during the wlwale of 1907?—The Surveyor: Yes. there was one < ase. BREEZE ABOUT HOPE CHAPEL. Aid-, rman Hughes said he had been re- quested by the trustees of the New Hope CLapel to place before the Council the posi- tion of the trustees with regard- to paving Coity-strcet in front- of the chapel. The trustees had acquired a large piece of land from Lord Dun raven and they had suecess- striven to put- up a line building, which proved an ornament to the town. They were dedicating a considerable portion of land to the public use, and they asked that the Coun- cil would, in consideration or this, put down the paving or make a substantial, grant to- wards it. The trustees would lay the paving on Station-hill, and this would he an expeu- sive item.—Mr. Harris proposed that the Works Committee eon-ider the matter, and that the surveyor report on the rest.—Mr. Abbott objected to this. as it would be establishing a dangerous The Council would be asked to do the same thing for other private owners.—Tho Chairman Tki Council is ne>t deciding to do the work now.—Mr. Abbott Yon are go-in? to consider it.—The. Chairman Certainly.— Mr. Abbott: Weil, I don't think we ought to consider it for cue moment.—Mr. Preece: Ts Mr. Abbott aware that the same thing has been done before other chaxels.— Mr. Abbott Did wo do it in front of Oidcastle Church? I am not aware that it has been doi;:» anywhere. It is spending the ratepayers' money for a private enterprise.—Mr. Bevan It is a matter which ought to be considered, surely. —Mr. Abbott This is the thin edge of the wedge1.—Alderman Hughes pointed out that the trustees were not bound to dedicate the land to public. No precedent would be created, because other religious bodies had been similarly treated—not only chapels.— Tire motion was carried. THE NEW BRIDGE. it". J. M. Randall wrote tint Lord Duv- raven would sell the hon.sc> in the occupation of Mr. George James for £ '200, on the under- standing that it would be taken down for the imp-rovenient of the brieve ard the ap- proaches to it.—The Clerk" .said lie had writ- ten asking Mr. Randall whether the ho;n-e would I;- sold freehold, uvd he replied. "I think it would be that the free- hold 'houicl be- conveyed to the Council. It wonW be hetter that it should take the form (." <h dication for the purposes of the road. Yon may take1 it that sufficient land would be -dedicated for a- reasonable I»r>provement of the Krieige."—On the motion er Mr. Jenkins, "■-he h cter was referred to the Works Commit- tee. MR. EBLEYS APPLICATION". Mr. E. Eblry applied for a renewal of his theatrical license, which empires on January Chairman: Has there been any complaint?—The Surveyor: Xo. sir. — Mr. Jenkins proposed that the ap- plication. be granted.—Carried. CONFERENCE. The Council were asked to appoint a to attend the annual conference undo ■ the auspices of the National Housing Reform Association to be held in Swansea in Feb- ruary.—Mr. Preece: Swansea far enough, and it's too dirty a place. (Laugh- ter.)—Mr. Edwards: Mr. Preece wants to go to Hebd'-n Bridge, perhaps. <More laugh- ter.)—Mr. Jenkins moved that the- Chairman he appointed.— 1 he Clerk: February 3rd. any footoall match that day? (Laughter.) They had better make it the 17th—the day of the Ivteri-at-iona) match—and we'll all go down. (Laughter.)—The Chairman was appointed.
Fugitive Asylum Inmate Captured. Marv Adams, aged IS, inmate of the Pare Gwyilt Asylum, escaped from that institution early on Saturday morning. She managed to get v out into the exercise yard, whore she charged her clothes and left them behind. In formation was later sent to the police-. and t'hey ascertained that the woman booked from Bridgend to Swansea by the 8.31 train on Saturday morning. Inquiries at- Swansea, I however, were without avail. TI1:, fugitive j w as captured at Llanelly under rather extra- ordinary circumstances. ft appear.* that on Saturday night the Llar.elly poiice arrested a woman for being drunk and disorderly, and on taking h-:r to the station it- was thought th.at -he answered to the description of the woman who had escaped from the ayslum, and it was found that she was the identical person. fe-he was wearing ordinary clothes. which she had scoured in sjme way while in the asylum, :'ud put on in the airing court, leaving her regulation garments behind. She was taken hack to the Bridg< nd Asylum on Sunday.

FIRE.—A slight fire occurred on the pre- mises of Messrs. David Bros., grocers. -treet, out Monday afternoon. It appears that a boy in the employ of Messrs. David was carrying parcels of matches upstairs when he dropped one and it ignited. The police were sent for and under Supt. Davis and Sergt. W. David, and assisted by a "num- ber of willing volunteers, they extinguished the flames before much damage had been done.
THE TERRITORIAL ARMY. OPINIONS OF LOCAL OFFICERS ON THE NEW ARRANGEMENT. In view of the statement that the 2nd V.B. Welsh Regiment is, under the scheme for a Teiritorial Army, to be disbanded, and a cyclist battalion formed, with headepiarters probably at Bridgend, we have gleaned the. opinion of some local officers, past and pre- sent on the new disposition:- MAJOR J. C. COATH expressed the opinion- that it would be little uise discussing the question of the advisability of the arrangements. The Army Council had no doubt made up their minds what, in their wisdom, they thought desirable in the interests of tho defence of the country, and it only remained for the county tn, as far as possible, comply with their requirements in a loyal manner. The Council's demands were, lie thought, final. That is so far as the demands from the Council as a whole are concerned," remarked our representative. Don't you think the County Association will have a voice in ar- ranging the location of the different details?" "No doubt they will so far as it relates to certain, details, but the main outline of the distribution already indicated will, I think, be adhered to." "Don't you think that the substitution of the ordinary infantry corps bet-ween- Cardiff and Swansea by other branches will strike a blow at Volunteering in this part of the county?" It is certain to cut off a lot- of the old?r bands, but I think tire re will be a rush of re- cruit's to compensate for any defection, par- ticularly if a cyclist battalion' is to be located here. I have great faith in the success of a battalion of this kind in Central' Glamorgan. 'I had a. great difficulty with the company here while I was in command in inducing recruits to join the rank and file. Nearly all wanted to attach themselves to the cyclist corps. So far as Bridgend is concerned, I should not anticipate the slightest difficulty in raising a strong company here. "What about the LLantwit Company?" "I think the Vale would respond we!! to a cyclist corps. Owing to the scattered dis- trict from which a company has to be drawn in. the Vale, a cyclist- corps should be mo-re successful than most branches of arms. The mobility of the cyclist would facilitate com- pany drills, which can seldom be held under the present conditions." What would become of Maes-teg?" That is one of the difficulties so far as this neighbourhood is ccncern-cd. Some towns must suffer under scheme of re- arrangement. I don't think Maesteg wouhl be a suitable district for artillery, and it is hard to say whether it con id raise a. full cyclist company. It mi-dit, for there are a great many young fellows in the Valley who use the cycle." Major Co-ath added that he thought the general idea of having a cvclist battalion for the stretch between Cardiff and Swansea a good one. Battalion and hali-battaiion parades, which provided such excellent- field practice1 and was good for recruiting pur- poses. bad been impracticable in the past, I but could be frequently he-id with a eyclht battalion. If such a branch were formed he ¡ hoped that Captain Hunter would be given the command. Whilst in charge of the Bridsend comrany he came into contact with Cfptai-n Hunter a rrroat de3.1. and knew him to be an excellent officer. CAPTAIN H. J. RANDALL that the Teiritorial Army scheme was, ill his opinion, the best scheme- of rerorm Ii iiich the Auxiliary Forces had ever had. "We must do our best," he went on. "to make it effective, and. speaking generally, I think it wiH be a success." "Lo you think the proposals concerning Glamorgan wiN detrimentally affect the Volunteer movement?" asked our representa- tive. My difficulty is," replied. Captain Ran- dall. "that we do not know yet what is to be done in this county. The infantry will, of course, have to be cut down, but how this is to be effected- is not known yet. I have heard nothing officially on the subject, and I don't know what is to be expected of us. I cannot express an opinion as to what may take place in this district until I receive- seme definite information. The details will have to be. arranged by the County Associations." Asked his opinion as to what would be done with the 2nd Welsh. Captain1 Randall said he did not think the Bridgend, Maesteg" and I la-irtwit- Major Companies would be inter- fered with. "A-sumin.g that in place of the 2nd Welsh a Cyclist Battalion will be established do. you think it would prove a success?" I certainly think the young fellows would -how great readiness to join the cyclists, though it would mean a lot of the old hands leaving the service, which, indeed. I think they will do in any case. To make, such a battalion a success, however, the cyclists niu have. a liberal allowance to cover the wear and tear of their mnchincs. They have not Wen: so well treated in this respect in the past as they ought." CAPT. T. A. EDWARDS, who commands the Bridgend detachment of the 2nd Glamorgan1 R.G. Artillery, was reluc- tant to express any opinion with regard to what might happen in this county, though, he addetT, "1 think the new scheme will re- ceive loyal support all roun.d." "Have you liearel anything as to what may happen to the Bridgend Company of the Ar- tillery r" asked our reporter. I."have received no official communication relating to the scheme at ail, and what I feel is this. that in the present position of things the statements made are merely guess-work speculation. Of course, the official notices which have appeared sufficiently indicate that thf n must be a number of radical changes in the county, and these will, I take it, be made. according to the decisions of the new County Association." "Will you speculate," then, with regard to the company you command?" the reporter queried.. Well, with regard to the statement whic') has been published as coming from an official source that the 2nd Glamorgan Artillery Vol- unteers will have to bp, disturbed and be re- duced to five companies, I think if this takes place it is quite likely that Barry and Pen- arth will be well provided for, as their loca- tion is nearest to the guns at La-vernock, Br.rry, and P-ena-rth. What the. fate of the Bridge-lid' Company will be remains to be seen. My hope is that we shall not be inter- fered with, and there is one thing certain, that the men have held their own in the shooting contests all along, which is perhaps an argument why no change should he effected so far as eur company is concerned." But supposing, the Bridgend Company will hare to find a place one of the other Artil- lery corps to be established—-tho Howitzer Battery cr the Field Artillery, do you think it would work satisfactory?" I don't think it will make much difference whichever branch we belong to. The terms of service will not bev altered much; in fact, in some respects they wil'l be improved, for we shall receive army rates of pay in camp, in- cluding sepa ration,1 -allowance, which will mean- better pay than- uinter the old arrauce- nieut. It would, of course, mean a change of uniform." Re-plving to further onestions'. Captain Edwards said he thought the proposal to con- vert the 2nd Welsh into a cyclist- battalion would meet with success. He added: "I have no doubt- plenty of young fellows could be found to make- up the required strength without- any difficultv. Man-v of the- veterans would1 not be likely to invest in bicycles and go through the ordeal of learnincr to ride а.nel learn- the new drills, but I think there are any amount of eveiists who would be. prepared to join." GILFACH EXPLOSION. A report of Mcnd'ay's and Tuesday's inquiry into the deaths of the seven victims of the Diuas Main Explosion will be found on page б. The inquiry was resumed yesterday, when evich nee was given by Mr R. Rees, Aberdare; Mr. W. H. Hutchinson, of the Lewis-Merthyr Collieries; Mr. Hooper, of the Government Laboratory; Dr. Morgan, and John Webber, an enginema.n. A report of the evidence is unavoielably held over. The inquiry was ad- journed until to-day. Of the 37,728 Chinese coolies on the Rand on November 30th, sixty-six died in the course of last month and 1.986 were re- patriated, leaving 35^676 in the country on patriated, leaving 35^676 in the country on December 31st.
NEW COUNTY COURT OFFICES. OPENED THIS WEEK. DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS. The. new County Court and Offices, situated in Wyndham-street, Bridgend, which were opened this. wpeli:, supply a long-feit need, for the old offices in Queen-sitreet had provided altogether inadequate ac- commodation, while the arrangement by which the judge sat in the Police-court- while the registrar's court, was held in the Drill- ha.ll, some distance away, was extremely in- convenient to litigants having business to attend1 to in. both courts. The Bridgend Chamber of Trade and other bodies in the town, and district repeatedly called the at- tention of the authorities to the inadequacy of the- County Court accommodation, but the stereotyped replies to the effect that the matter would receive- serious consideration" did not afford much hope that additional ac- commodation would be provided. Then Mr. W. E. Lewis, the high bailiff, took the ques- tion up and went to considerable trouble in pressing Bridgend's claims anci in preparing an admirable- scheme wliich provided lor the. erection of a judge's court and' the usual offices on a portion- of the land at the rear of the Town-hair, with a connecting passage from the judge's court to the hall, where he proposed the registrar snoulel sit. The scheme in the form in which it was originally prepared was rather too elaborate, and several modifications were perforce made, but the ideas of Air. Lewis were adhered to in the scheme which the Office of Works even- tually approved'. The new buildings have been constructed at a cost of over according to the de- signs of the late Mr. W. J. Edgar Thomas, P.A.S.I., in conjunction with the architect of His Majesty's Office of Works (Mr. H. W. Hawks). The contractors were Messrs. W. j Thomas and Co., Cardiff, who also supplied the furniture. The whole of the building, which is of a. scan-classic design, is carried out with native stone, walling brick, and ierro concrete, wiih heavy cement cornices, mouldings and facings, and extern-ally the building corresponds with the Town-had, which it adjoins. The offices generally pre- sent a very bright- and pleasing appearance; they are all spacious and light and weil venti- lated. The internal arrangements are of an up-to-date character—indeed they leave no- thing to be desired'—and several new features have'beom introduced. The main entrance is frcm Wyndham-street, and the first office reached on the ground floor »is that of Mr. Registrar Rees—a commodious and wed fur- nished room. The search and plaint and pay offices are also on the ground floor, divided by a. low glass partition, and1 the chief clerk's office, which has a glass roof, is reached through the search office. Connected with the search and plaint offices there are, of course, the usual strong rooms, files and sta- tionery rooms, and cloak-rooms, etc., are also provided. The space on the first floor, which is reached by a fire-proof stair- case, is allocated between the County Court, the offices of the high bailiff and bailiffs, and the judge's apartments, there being a private entrance to the latter from Union-street. The County Court is. perhaps, not so commo- dious as most people expected, but the best use has been made of the space- 48it. by 29ft. — and it is calculated to provide accommoda- tion for about 2GO persons. Tbe jury box is placed to the right and the Press elesk to the left of the judge's seat, while the witn>cc-.s boxes are almost immediately in front—a Lttle nearer the judge's seat than the solici- tors' table. The Town-hall, where the re- gistrar will sit, is coniu-ctcd with the judge's court by an. overground passage, and for the present the -dressing rooms- of the hall will be used as barristers' and solicitors' robing rooms. on the second floor, from which there is ac-ceis to the roof, which is, bike the rt air ease lead- inQ: to it, constructed' on the well-known H-e n- nibique system of ferro concrete, which 'adapts it-self admirably to this and similar work. From the roof a. capital view is ob- tained of the neighbourhood. The lighting is by electricity, and the ventilation on the natural system, but there is n-o- heating arrangement beyond the ordinary fire-grates. The floors are of solid pitch-pine blocks, and the furni- ture is of the 11\0<;1:. modern type. The electric lighting hos been carried cut in a hishly satisfactory manner by Messrs. P'riee, Friend' and Co., electricians, Cardiff, under the supervision of Messrs. Herbert- Lewis and Fletcher, consulting electrical en- gineers. CanxTiff, for Messrs. W. Thomas a nd Co. The blinds- were supplied by Messrs. Ben Evans and' Co., Swansea.

COWSRiDGE. Motor Car Mishap.—-About two a.m. on Friday a. powerful motor car belonging to Mr. Thomas, of the Canton Motor Gairage, which had been e,ugaged' by Captain Dixton, Bonvil- stone, to bring a party from Nash. Manor, was badly damaged while going through Cow- bridge. The chamtfeur was accompanied in the car by Captain Dixon.'s coachman. It is believed that tho chauffeur, in driving over the oridge at Cowbridge, which is somewhat narrow, got too close to the wall. He drove into the lamp-post, which was knocked down | and the car itself was ml most wrecked. The chauffeur Was unhurt, but the coachman's in- juries were such that he had to be removed to the Cardiff Infirmary. Colonel and Mrs. Whitting in An Accident. —While C-aLonel and' Mrs. C. E. Whitting, of Uphill, who axe well known in Cowbridge, were being driven, in a pair-horsed carriage from Beach-road to Richmond-street, Wes- ton-upcir-Ma.re, the near horse slipped a.nd fell all the asphalt. In the animal's struggles to get np the blind halter came off. Meian- while Colonel Whitting sucf-eeded in alight- ing and in handing out his wife. The. horses then- bolted, and tho ca,nri.age came into col- lision with a lorry, the horse attached to which was thrown clown. Colonel Whitting's I coachman was thrown off his box and received cuts on the back of the head, for which he was medically treated' and then sent home. Servants'' Ball at Llandough C-astle.—This annual event took place on Thursday evening last week, and' was kept up until tho early hours of Pr-ufay. The guests, numbering about 80, were handsomely entertained. Mr. and Mrs. Ebsworth, Master Allen and Miss Swinto-n, with the house party, visited the ball-room, which was artistically decorated, and they hon-cured the gat-herring by leading off the dancing to the strains of charming music. The conservatory, "jade picturesque by the aid of Japanese lanterns, floral and other decorations, was the rendezvous for the supper, where the health of Mr. and Mrs. Ebswiorth and family was proposed, and most enthusiastically reepo-nded to.
