A letter wa,, read from the agent to the quarry where the Council obtain some of the stwa used for their roads. From this it appeared th%t the rent on the quarry to the Council would be £10 per annum, and 3d. per yard for the stones used beyond the first 800 yards. Some of the members doubted whether they used 800 yards.—Mr. Dd. Davies proposed that the clerk write thanking the agent for bi. letter, and stat- ing that as they were not prepared to settle terms just now the matter had been de- ferred. A letter was read thanking the Council and the various pariah councils, etc., in the union for the generous response which had been made in the district to the appeal for sutracriptioos to provide comforts, for the Welsh troops. The amount subscribed was £ 112 10s., and the expenditure in connection therewith had only been 5s. 9d. for station- ery, postage, telegrams, and parcels. Llanddeusant Roads, I Miss Thomas, clerk to the Llanddau'a&nt Parish Council, on behalf of that body, wrote calling attention to the deplorable state of some of the roadM in that pwlsh due to the heavy traffio in connection with the Llanelly Rural Distii-L Lcuniai woter. works.—In the din ussioa which followed it was Mated that the roads referred to were in a very bad state in the early part of this month, especially when excavations had been made for the Hying of pipes.—Mr. Tudor Lewis said that he visited Llandeu- sant, and found that matters had somewhat improved since his previous visit, but there was still room for improvement. In answer to the clerk, he said that stones were put down at the expense of the Llanelly Coun- ciL—Mr. W. Evans said that tome weeks parts of the rood might be very bad. He attributed thia to men being very scarce.— the Clerk pointed out that the report stated thai there was still room for im- provement. The roada required more metal- ling.—Mr. W. Evans 8id they were having so much bad. weather, and the roads were so narrow.-rlac Surveyor said he had called attention to the matter on his way uack from Llanddausant. The contractor said te would Xiuy down some stones now, and more later on. The material excavated was tem- porarily spread on the surface of the roads to avoid interrupting the traflic.. Subser quently when the pipes had been laid down what ww required to place on the pipes waa laid, and the rest carted away.—One of the members described the stuff spread on the roads from the excavations as black mud.—As to the stoppage of traffic on the roads, Mr. W. Evans said they once did eo, but now if you wanted to travel in your trap you could do so.—Mr D. Davies said he should like the surveyor to give them the names of the roads which were bad and re- quiring metalling.—The Clerk thought the best plan would be to get them to repair the roads ae they went along.
