BARMOUTH COUNCIL. SPECIAL MEETING. THE COUNCIL'S HORSE. A WARNING TO YOUNG MOTOR DRIVERS. A LONG SITTING. A special meeting of the above Council was held on Thursday night. Pre- sent -Messrs. J. Pryce Jones, J.P. (chairman), Owen Williams (vice- chairman), Henry Freeman, Robert Lloyd Williams, John Morgan, Edward Williams, William Owen, J. Llewellyn Davies, Rhys Jones, D. E. Davies, and David 0. Hughes; with Messrs. R. Llewelyn Owen (deputy clerk) and T. R. Parry (surveyor and inspector). THE HORSE QUESTION. The Surveyor reported that the fol- lowing three offers had been received for the purchasing of one of the Coun- cil's horses :—Mr G. Dale Williams, Penllyn Stud Farm, Towyn, £ 41 Mr Owen Llewelyn Williams, High Street, Barmouth, £ 50 and Mr Hughie Fury, .Llanrwst, £55. The Surveyor said that the horse was at present "out grazing on Fronoleu Farm at 5/- a week. The Chairman said the Council should first of all decide whether they were going to dispose of the horse or not. Mr Robert Lloyd Williams proposed that the horse should be sold. Mr J. Llewelyn Davies seconded. In reply to Mr Edward Williams, the Surveyor said that the horse was bought by the Council for £47. As an amendment, Mr John Morgan proposed that the horse should not be sold just at present, as he considered it was nothing less than wasting public money in doing so now. Later on the Council would have a good price for the horse, and it would be much better for the Council to leave it out grazing. He could not vote in favour of selling the horse. The Council might havet80 for it later on. Mr Robert Lloyd Williams said that if the horse recovered alright the state- ment made by Mr John Morgan was quite right, but the Council would have to take that risk. Mr J. Lleweiyn Davies said the Veter- inary Surgeon bad told the Council it would be better for them to sell the horse and he thought that he knew best. TheCouncil might have £ 80 for it and they might have only £ 20. It all depended whether the horse would recover alright. Mr John Morgan said he had been informed by one who kept a good num- ber of horses that it would be unwise for the Council to sell it now, and that the Council would have a bigger price for it later on. Mr Robert Lloyd Williams said if the, horse recovered it would be worth £80 any day, Mr Rhys Jones said that horses reached high prices just at present, and he thought that it would pay the Coun- cil to leave it out grazing for a short time agin. He seconded the amend- ment not to sell it now. Mr Henry Freeman enquired what report did the Veterinary Surgeon give of the horse. f —a—■ ■■llll II III I—* Win Mi; a The Surveyor said the Veterinary I Surgeon bad reported that the horse would not be fit to do any Council's work. Mr J. Llewelyn Davies said that if at any time the Council expected to have zC80 for the horse they would .have to give some guarantee with it. Mr John Morgan said if the horse was left out grazing for a longer period it i would demand a bigger price. Mr Henry Freeman said it would be j better for the Council to pay £ 2 or t8 for the horse to graze out if it would i fetch £ 80. fetcb £80.. j Mr Edward Williams said if it paid I a stranger to offer £ 55 for the horse, he thought it would pay the Council not to sell it at the present time. Mr D. E. Davies, who was late arriv- ing, said it would be much better for the Council to sell the horse now. He thought that the Council would be risk- ing it if they would not sell it now. Mr Robert Lloyd Williams-Is the offer of Xr)5 for the horse a good price ? Mr D. E. Davies-Yes, in the present ¡ state of the horse. After some further discussion, the matter was put to a vote with the fol- lowing result:—For selling the horse 5 voted; against selling 4 voted, which was declared lost. Mr John Morgan said he wished his name recorded in the minutes that be had voted against selling the horse now. They were not doing right with the ratepayers' money. Mr D. E. Davies said it was not right I for a member to say such a thing. He bad honestly voted in favour of what he believed was the best thing to do, and if the horse belonged to him he would have done the same thing. The ques- tion of selling this horse bad been dis cussed at the Works Committee some time ago, and it was then over-ruled. Mr John Morgan said be knew nothing about that at all. -1. Mr Owen Williams said it bad been proposed at the Works Committee to sell the horse, but it was out-voted. Ultimatelv it was decided on the pro- position of Mr Robert Lloyd Williams, seconded by Mr D. E. Davies, that the horse should be sold to Mr Fury for £55. STANDS FOR HACKNEY CAR- RIAGES AND MOTORS. The Deputy Clerk reported that the Chief Constable (Mr Richard Jones) bad called at the Council Offices. He appealed to the Council to fix stands for hackney carriages and motors in different parts of the town and also the time they were to stay on such stands. If the Council agreed to do that be (the Chief Constable) would see that the Police would do the remainder. A motor car bad been standing all day in a certain place in the town. If the Council wished, the Chief Constable would be pleased to meet the Council and have a discussion on the matter. Mr John Morgan said he thought the Council should iirst of all decide where the stands were to be located. At present they had no stands only in front of people's property. The Council ought to come to some understanding on that matter. Mr Rhys Jones said it would be much better if the Chief Constable would meet the Council, then they would I llinow what he had to say on the mutter. # Mr William Owen said that this question was cropping up year after year and had caused the Council no end of trouble. They all knew that the streets of Barmouth were very narrow and that the ratepayers wanted to do their best to meet the heavy liabilities they had. Up to the present, no com- plaints bad been sent to the Council, but it seemed that a complaint had been made to the Chief Constable. It would not be denied that some motor-cars did go fast through the town, and they should be informed that pedestrians had quite as much right of the main road as them. He believed that these young drivers ought to be severely warned by their masters that they should not drive so fast and to be most careful not to run people down. At intervals some of them had to jump to the top of walls to get clear of these young motor drivers. It was awful at the north-end of the town, and he sincerely hoped that these young motorists would be more careful in the future. The Chairman said he thought that the Chief Constable had suggested a very wise step, and it would be an excel- lent thing to have some arrangement between the Council and thp Police. Mr John Morgan enquired whether the Council bad any stands at the present time. The Chairman said they bad stands located at certain parts of the town, and the arrangement made last summer had proved very satisfactory. Mr Robert Ll. Williams said he saw no harm in having a conference with the Chief Constable on the matter. The Council had no proper stands at the present time. The Chairman said the Chief Consta- ble bad full powers over the safety of the general public at large on all the roads, and be was sure be would meet the Council in every possible way. Mr John Morgan said he bad no objection at all for the Council to meet the Chief Constable. After some further discussion, it was unanimously decided, on the proposition of Mr Rbys Jones, seconded by Mr Henry Fi-eeaian, that the Council should meet the Chief Constable an an early date, to discuss the mattel further. CARETAKER. The Deputy Clerk reported that a number of applicants bad been received for the post of caretaker at the new Council Offices, and ultimately it was decided to re-advertise in the Barmouth Advertiser. TOO LONG HOURS. I At a quarter past ten our representa- tive left the meeting, and we are given to understand that the Council sat un- til nearly 11-30. The meeting was timed to start at 7-30. i I
