Samuel (accountant), Mr T. R. Gabe (surveyor), Mr 1). Hughes (deputy clerk). Befor proceeding with the business, the Chairmrn moved a vote of con- dolence with the clerk, in the sad loss of his sister. This was carried in silence. It was decided that the next meet- ing of the Council, should be held on Tuesday, July 31st. An application was read from Mr C. Foster, Pontlottyn, for an increase in commission for the collection of water and cottage rents. There were extra oharges, he said, for train fare, etc, which justified his application. Th 5 usual rate of commission fcr this claas of collection was 20 per cent. The latter statement caused some sur- prise, and was repudiated.—Mr John Edwards: He is paid well now at 10 per cent.—The matter was referred to the Finance Committee, with a sug- gestion that the Accountant carry oat the duties The tender of Mr Wm Jenkins, of Bodwais, was accepted at £ 51 18s 6d. f for laying a sewer in John street, Bar- I goed. The tender of Mr E. L. Wat- kins, Bargoed, was aooepted for the supply of meat to the Hospital for the next three months. A letter was read from Supt. T. Williams, Glamorgan Constabulary, in reply to the council's application that the police thronghont the parish of Gelligaer, should act as shops' in- spectors, stating that the duties of the police in this respect would be limited to powers under the Defence of the Realm Regulations.—Several members pointed out that these regu. lations overlapped the council's orders, and it woald only be necessary for the police to supervise the district on three nights a week.—It was deoided to -the Superintendent pointing out this fact. A letter was read from the Local Tribunal, asking Council's permission that their clerk, Mr C. J. Samuel, who had been appointed accountant, should be allowed to continue his duties as clerk to that authority. In supporting the application, Mr E. Richards said, that to cause a change to be made now, would be a most difficult matter. The position was not a whole time one, and as Mr Samuel was entitled to one half day per week, it could be competent for him to arrange that on the day of the tribunal, that, however, was not necessary, if the Council granted this application. In moving that it be sanctioned, he expressed regret that a motion bad not been adopted to change the whole of the tribunal. The members had carried out their duties up to the present. So long as the war lasted, this tribunal would have to Bit, but it was a pity other members could not be brought in now to relieve those who had done the work up to the present. The motion to grant the request was adopted. The seal of the Council was affixed to the authority to use the Council's name as relator to the aotion against the Rbymney Railway Company, re Melin Cylla footpath. A letter was read from the residents of Fochriw, as the outcome of a public meeting, asking that measures be taken now, to deal with men re- leased from the army at the termin. ation of the war, and suggesting the construction of a road from Fochriw to Penybank. Mr Sidney Jones, opposed any speeial privilege being given to this road, and pointed out that there were other roads far more advanced. than the one under review. Finally, it was decided that the sub. ject should be placed on the list with other works to be executed after the war. u.
