Up and Down the Coast PRIVATE GROUNDS. Whilst traversing over the bills in the direction of the Panorama Pleasure Grounds one day last week, a visitor staying in the town was greatly struck at the number of notices with 11 Private Grounds to be seen at different parts. THE GELLFECHAN FARM INQUIRY. The result of this inquiry is awaited with keen interest by a large number of ratepayers, and it is high time that the result should be given by the Local Government Board. THE FOOTBALL CLUB AND RECRUITING. The members of the Barmoutb Foot- ball Club have responded well to tbb call for recruits to serve their King and country. The following members have already left to join the Territorials Edward Price, Humphrey Humphreys; John Parry Jones, Robert Francis Morris, Billie W. Roberts, and Dick Fuller. ROAD IMPROVEMENTS. It is to be hoped that the various landowners will not raise obstacles with regard to the proposed widening of the roads at several points on the Llan- aberRoad,and which work will be carried out this winter by the Urban District Council, who have already been pro- mised a good sum of money towards the expense from the Road Board. It is stated that one or two landlords have already agreed to give the necessary land tor the improvements, and it is to be hoped that others will follow, so that tbetin employed can have something to do this coming winter. THE PROPOSED BRIDGE AND PROMENADE. It is a very long time since we beard anything as regards the proposed foot- bridge over the Railway in Jubilee Road, nor of the extension of the Promenade towards the Bath House. For the pre- sent the latter improvement is out of the question, as the interesting landowners in that vicinity don't seem likely to con- tribute anything towards the construc- tion of the Promenade. A CREDIT TO BARMOUTH. I Now the busy season is at an end, it is very creditable to a watering place of the standing of Barmouth that not a single fatal accident of any kind had I occurred during the season.
At the Pwllheli Town Council, on Wednesday, .^he Mayor reported that the sum of t320 had been contributed in the town towards the Prince of Wales' Fund. It was decided to adopt' a scheme to dbvelop certain parts of the town in order to provide work for the unemployed during the winter months. 0 0 0 0 To assist the Empire Defence Fund the Ureware Maoris, the tribe most recently in arms against the State, have offered the New Zealand Government 1,600 acres of land.
