INTERVIEW WITH THE KING'S HARBOUR MASTER. Mr Garrett reported the result of an interview which he, the Chairman and the Surveyor had had with the King's Harbour Master, who intimated that he had no objection to stones being removed from the Beach for the proposed sea wall. THE PAYMENT OF RATES. A SCKXK. Mr Lewis brought forward a resolution to rescind a resolution passed at a previous meeting rating the owner3 instead of the occupiers in respect of property of an assessable value of £10 and under. In moving that the resolution be rescinded, Mr Lewis said his objection to the resuluticn on the books was the extra burdens it would impose ou the ratepayers. On the district rate and the poor rate he calculated that it would mean the pay- meut of about £ l_i a year to the landlords, an amount equivalent to a ?d rate. In Neyland there were ;H:2 houses affected, with an aggregate assessment of £ 2,Olio. With a district rate of :23 Id iu the £ and a poor rate of 5s in the £ a commission of 20 per cent to the i?udi?rd? on the district rate would mean about 149, and 15 p-r cent commission on the poor rate would realise £ 7S. Tiie argument put forward that the commission would be more than counter-balanced by tho wiping out of arrears did not, in his opinion, hold good. The arrears on the poor rate last year amounted to itS lis 6d, in the pre- vious year the arrears were E,50 IGs 7 i'1. and on the pre- ceding year £G:3 10s 1. This proved that recently the rates had been more regularly paid, and a little more energy on the put of the coliectors would avoid these arrears. The Council could not, in his opinion, demand rates in respect of uuoceupied property unless they had an agreement in writing to that effect. The only people who would benetit by this new system would be the landlords, agents of property, and the rate collectors, but it would cost the ratepayers of Neyland u.,i additional il27 per year. All this would go into the pockets of the landlords, and he moved that the resolution be rescinded at the earliest possible moment. THE LANDLORDS ,.r_Tt I Air Joan secouu'-u. lie s:uu that Mr Garrett, when in the chair, said that the extra 4d on the rates was for the purposes of public lighting. It now turned out that the money was not for public lighting at all, but for palm- oiling the landlords of the district. The Chairmin (interrupting) Mr John, I shall not allow that expression. Mr John Perhaps you will give me aa expression that I can use. The Chairman You are imputing bribery to the Council. Mr J01m I am applying it to the whole Council. The Chairman: C ntess you can express yourself in a civilised manner as regards the Council, I shall not aliow you to go on. Mr Lewis has brought forward a resolu- tion and has spoken in a proper maimer, and if you cannot second him in a proper and respectful manner, I shall not allow you to pr ;ceed. Mr John I shall not withdraw. The Chairman Then I shall leave the chair. You have no right to use an expression of that sort, and I shall not allow it. Mr John You must give me another expression to use then. The Chairman I cannot put brains into your head. (Cries of "withdraw.") Mr Juhu I cannot see how I can. The Chairman I shall not allow you to use that expression on this Council. Mr John Give me au expression then. You are placing a burden Oil the poor of this district of something like 03 6d in thei in the interest of the landlords. The Chairman You said the resolution was passed for the purpose of palm-oiling the landlords, and you shall have to withdraw the expression or you shall not proceed. Mr John 1 have asked you for another expression. The Chairman I shall not. Mr .John: .LJ a representative of the ratepayers, I cannot. The Chairman Vou may represent anybody. I shall not allow you to proceed. Mr John 1 cannot withdraw it. The Chairman Very good. Then sit down. I am sorry for your flow of language. Mr John Give me an expression. The Chairman I am not here to do that. I am here to conduct the business of the Council, and it shall be conducted in a proper manner, or [ shall not conduct it at all. Mr John I am prepared to prove it. The Chairman This is not a pnper place for that. Mr John I dou't see how I can withdraw it. The Chairman I can tell you which way. You can say you withdraw it. Mr John Very well, I will withdraw it. Continuing Mr John alleged that the Council was composed mainly of men who would reap a benefit from the new method of collecting. There were landlords present who would reap a benefit from a rate they had made, and he did not think the Conncil were justified in allowing those men to vote. Mr Uoach explained that when he moved the resolution which Mr Lewis desired to rescind he was under the apprehension that landlords would pay for unoccupied houses. Now that this was not the case it altered his position. The Chairman pointed out that Mr Roach not only proposed the resolution, but he congratulated the liuance committee on bringing it forward. Mr Roach admitted that that was so. The Chairman I don't understand your position at the present time. Of course everyone has a right to chan"ge his mind. Mr Evans referred to the fact that under the new method all the rates would be collected. If they con- sidered the arrears last year they would see that the benefit to be derived from the landlords would be very little. The arrears last year amounted to £100, and to recover some of the rates meant an expenditure of 30s to recover -3a and then not get it. (Laughter). A BIG DISCREPANCY. Mr Y oy Ie said that if the resolution were carried it would not take effect for a certain time. It was early yet to know how the new method would act. He pointed out one big discrepancy in Mr Lewis's figures. Mr Lewis said the poor rate was -3s in the E. but it never exceeded 38 (¡d. And when a man made a discrepancy of Is Gd in the £ in his calculations he discountenanced his calcula- tions entirely. Mr Lewis had also over-stated the num- ber of houses affected by iu per cent. Mr John said that the landlords got Os Gd in the i out of it, but he did not see how that was possible in a rate of 2s id in the When men talked twaddle of that kind it was wasting the time of the Council, and the Chairman should put his foot down. Mr John produced a rate receipt to prove his statement, and added, referring to Mr Voyle, This man is always more or less making a row. Mr Lewis said he should reply to Mr V oyIe in a gentle- manly manner. (Hear, hear). He had a poor rate demand note at his house now for 2s 6d in the £ for the half-year. That proved his statement to be correct. On a division, three councillors-the mover and seconder and Mr Roach-voted for Mr Lewis's resolu- tion, which was therefore lost. TO INCREASE GAS CONSUMPTION. The paving and lighting committee recommended (1) that Messrs Parkinson & Cowan's offer to send a trained canvasser to canvass the district with a view to increasing the gas csnsnmers be accepted. (2) That Mr James Finn's tender for paintiug lamps and other work at Is Jd per lamp be accepted, subject to his being able to pro- ceed with the work forthwith.

The tenders of the Forest of Dean Stone Firm and that of Mr John Warlow for broken limestones for Great Eastern-terrace were also accepted. —The report was adopted. INSANITARY HOUSES. The sanitary inspector (Mr Evans) presented a lengthy report, in which he drew attention to the existence of a nuisance "U preiui-es occupied by Mr Charles Lloyd, 7, Chark-n Stitisi. Aj the occupier had not complied with his rt'nue-i to have the nuisance removed he recom- mended tuac jiitut .ry notice of abatement be served on Mr Lloy d. The L aLo repelled the result of a visit to ihe lioustre t'u iL,; .ulii uin'o of Cambrian Road. He was accompanied by the Medical Officer of Health, and now submitted a detailed report of the defects found on the various premises. He found in Xü. 3 house broken floors in back kitchen, leakage in roof, defective rain water troughs, icc. absence of trongr.s on back of house in No. z house, and defective floor in kitchen, &c., in No. 7 house; roof leaking, defective flooring in kitchen, &c., in No. ',) house; no rain water troughs on back of house, broken stairs, roof leaking, and defective ventila- tion pipe in No. 11 cottage. This last house was des- cribed as being generally in a very bad state, and re- quired purification. Houses -No. 13 and I,), 17,19 and 21 were also described as defective, No. 17 being generally iu a bad condition, nnd ^o. 21, on accouut of some broken iron railings, was dangerous to the public. The majaity of the houses were said to be kept in a very filthy state. Dr. Tolputt, meuical ofltcer of health, recommended that steps bo taken to close these houses as beiçg unfit for human habitation. The sanitary committee recommended that statutory notice be served on Mr Charles L!oyd, of No. 7, Charles Street, in accordance with the sanitary inspector's report, that a copy of the reports of the Medical Officer of Health and Inspector be sent to the owner of the houses complained of iu CLtmbrian Road, and to ask for his ;)bservations by the next meeting of the Council, and that statutory notice of abatement of nuisance be served on the occupiers of premises in Cambrian Road of which complaint was made in the Sanitary Inspector's report. i Mr Voyle referred to the seriousness of these nuisances, and said that unless they were abated there might be a serious epidemic outbreak. The sanitary committee's report was adopted, and on the suggestion of Mr Evans it was decided to hold a special meeting of tilo Council that night fortnight to con- sider the condition ot the houses in Cambria Road as well 08 the question of the Beach Road. I 1- MORE TEXDEn. The work- committee recommended that the conditions asfcud for by the War Department in connection wi:h their grant of £100 for the Beach road be subscribed to by the council; thrtt a rubble masonry wall, in preference to a concrete wall, be built alor; the Beach road, that the tender of Mr John Warlow for nnilding stones at 3s pecr ton, that of Messrs Llewellyn for hme at 1.3s per ton, aud that of Messrs Harries & Son fur oak posts at -is 3d each be accepted. These tenders are all ia respect of the Beach road improvements. The conditions of the grant made by the War Depart- ment are that the work shad be done in a manner adequate to protect the Department property, that no liability present or future be admitted by the Depart- ment in this matter, and that the cost of maintenance be borne by the urban council. The Committee's report was adopted. Several amend- ments were moved, but they were ail defeated.

Witness re- mained in the-house until ;3.:30, and by then the defendant had sobered. He senc for her niece nnd her sou and thev took charge of the house. Meanwhile a woman named Mary Arln Richards, of Birnsley Cottage, called at the house for a pint of beer, but the defendant was iu too in- toxicated a condition to supply her.

FlUllliÜ each animal without costs. CHARGE OF THEFT DISMISSED. James Davies, labourer, Broadway, was charged on remand with stealing a ewe of the value of ;)S, the property of Thomas Mends, Williamston, Haroldstone West, between the 2'jth and May. Thomas Mends said he was a farmer, and about i) p.m. on May ¡, he saw his sheep not far from the house. There were then 30 aheep and 3-3 iambs in the field. On Sunday morning at about 'J o'clock, he found that a ewe was missing, and at one place he noticed that someone had pulled a sheep over the hldge. He was very par- ticular about his fences, and had only recently had them repaired. On discovering his loss he immediately gave information to the police constable, and witness subse- quently traced footprints to a crossing at Broadway, some yards away from the defendant's house. Defendant Did my boots correspond with the foot- marks on Williamston grounds ?—Yes. How many plates were there in the track "-One plate on one boot. There seemed to have been a bag on the other boot. You mean to tell those gentlemen on the bench my boots were muffled -It seemed like it. Defendant: Thank God there is a man here to disprove that. P.C. James said that on the day referred to Mr Mends informed him that he had lost a ewe-that in fact some- one had stolen it. W itness said he saw the fresh gap in the hedge on Williitnson farm, and he observed boot tracks of a man's entrance and exit. Attached to the brambles was some wool, and he traced boot prints over a corn field. At Broadway be noticed the same boot prints on the road, and traced them to near Davies's house. He visited the defendant's house, a two-roomed cottage, and defendant, who was in bed, heard the con- versation between witness and Davies's wife. Her husband's boots were produced they were saturated with wet. Defendant's trousers were also produced, and about the legs were traces of wool. Witness told defendant that a ewe had been stolen from Williamston, and that a foot print had been traced to near his house. Defendant cursed and invited him to search the house. On leaving the house he noticed a footprint leading into a cornfield, and in an adjoining field he found a le,, of mutton wrapped up in paper. The distance from the prisoner's house to where he found the leti4 of mutton was 2-30 yards. Witness added that ho subsequently found the spot wherp the ewe was killed, and a man named Alfred Hughes found the skin and some other remaining portions cf the ewe, but these were in a somewhat decomposed state and he did not bring them to court. On being charged with stealing the ewe, defend- ant declared that he knew nothing about it, and accounted for the state of his boot3 and clothes by saying that he had been out seeing some snares on one of the farms. Cross-examined: I saw you by going down with Mr Edward Vaughau on the Saturday evening, but not when I returned. Alfred Hughes, The Folly, Haroldston, told the court that on the previous Monday he found a sheep's skin, head, neck, and breast in a gutter in olle of his fields. Mr Mends saw the sheep's skin and identified it as that belonging to hi3 lost sheep. Defendant had no questions to ask. Mr Fisher said this was a very suspicious case, but there was a doubt involved and the defendant would be given the benefit of it. The case would be dismissed. Mr Fisher added that the police were quite justified in bring- ing the case forward. Mr Howell Vv alters did not sit in the above case. In our report of the foregoing case when defendant was first brought before the court, P.C. James was represented as having said that a leg of mutton was found in Divies s house, whereas it will be seen from the constable s evidence given above, that it was in a held yards away. In justice to defendant we regret the confusion should have arisen. WORKING A HORSE WHILE UNFIT. William Devonald, of Bullford, was summoned for causing a horse to be vsoiised while in an unfit state Inspector Freed, of the R.S.P.C.A., said that all May 2-S he was 011 duty in Hakm Hoall when he saw a boy William Edwards, m charge of a black horse which attracted prosecutor 3 attention by its uneasy nianuer. On examination he found on the back bone a raw wound measuring about three indies by two inches, and there were also two wounds under the breeching of about the size of a shilling. 1 he animal was about Mx years of we, and Edwards told him he was in charge of it. Subse- quently, after the animal had been unharnessed the boy admitted that the horse was not in a fit state to he worked but stated that his master, William D.-vniiald had sent himont. At-t-rwards prosecutor :'lW Devonald, who on being invited to make a statement, at first saj.j he know nothing about it. Prosecutor remarked that that was very strange as he understood that he (defendant) had been applying oiutment to the wounds. Defendant then said he would not have had that happen for the world, and produced a tin of ointment which 8-iid ou the cover Be sure aud work the horse after it bas been applied." Prosecutor mentioned that that was a very poor excuse and directed him not to work the horse while in that state again. P.C. Nicholas corroborated the Inspector's version, and defendant was fined )s and costs. The case against the boy William Edwards, Coal Pit Park, Bullford, was dismissed with a caution. CHARGE AGAINST A WOMAN DISMISSED. At the instance of John Gilbert Watts, Yictoiia lun, Roch, Elizabeth Rees, Victoria. House, Roeb, was sum- moned fvi- stealing a bit of the value of 7s Gd. Mr W. G. Eaton Evans appeared for the defendant. Prosecutor told the court that on the previous Monday he missed a bit from the carthorse wbeie it was hanging up alongside the harness. He told Mrs Rees, the defendant, that someone but stolen the bit and she camo into the carthouse, looked about, and said Yes, there are some thieves to he had." Cross-examined The Victoria Inn and the Victoria House adjoin, and at the back the houses are opeu to the road leading to Roch Bridge. Before he spuke to Mrs Rees lie bad given information to the police. Afterwards Mrs Rees said that someone had broken iuto her house. A witness named James Kvans said he saw the bit with the bridle i.,i prosecutor's carthouse on Saturday night. P.C. Lleweliin told the court that on May 18th he received a letter from the prosecutor Watts who com- plained that someone lia-i been in his carthouse stealing. That afternoon he sa w Sirs Watts, who told him that between 2 o'clock ou Sunday afternoon and 11 o'clock on Monday morning someone had been in her cal thouse and had stolen a bit. Ho m ole inquiries and visited Mrs Rees's boute, and on beil kked if she knew anything a!)out the bit she ;Lid 1 e. About a fortnight ago I left my house and locked the door and when I returned I noticed that someone had been tampering with the lock. As I could not open the door I had to gain entrance through the window." She added that she had a cask of beer and some whisky in the house, and she found that the whole of the whisky and a portion of the beer had been consumed. The bit she found in a pail half-tilled with dirty water. Witness took possession of the bit, and it was identified by the prosecutor as his property. Cross-examined: Mrs Rees said it might be a Mr F raucis's bit, but sho handed it to witness at -(-)Dec and there was no attempt at coaceaiment. In the letter he received there was no suggestion who bad taken the bit, and he called on Mrs R-ca because his (witness's) brother said she might know something about it. The bench held that tliere was no case to answer, and the charge was dismissed.
The Ppeniiergast Consecpation. MEETING OF THE JOINT JBURIAL BOARD. ————— j" WOULD DO THE SAME AGAIN." I A meeting of the Prendergast Joint Burial Board was held at the Prendergast Workmen's Club on Friday evening. The rector, Rev. D. Akrill Jones presided, and the other members present were Messrs Marlay Samson, James Roif lands, George Davies (Prendergast Hill), W. Roberts, and James Evans (the Hermitage). The Chairman The first matter for your consideration is whther it is wise or otherwise to take any notice of the utterance of Mr Campbell on Sunday week in his chapel in regard to the action of this Board iu desiring that the whole of our burial ground should be consecrated. Mr Samson I beg to move that we proceed to our next business. Mr Rowlands seconded. Mr George Davies supported. The Chairman It is proposed that we ignore the whole thing and proceed to our next business. Mr Roberts Any disparaging remarks used as regards thi3 Board. The Cli:tirman Well, re,- The Chairman Well, regarding the Nonconformist members of the Board. Mr Roberts Anything personal ? Mr Rowlands Not agaiust the whole Board. The Chairman: It was an attack on the Noncon- formist members of the Board. Mr George Davies Therefore I think it is wise that we take not the slightest notice of it. The Chairman Treat it with contempt. Mr George Davies If you are not offended we are not. The Chairman: We felt that it was not an attack on us as a B,.arl but on our Nonconformist brethren on the Board, and if they desired any vindication of their position on the Board we ought to allow iL Mr George Davies We, the Nonconformist members, do not regret in the slightest the steps we have taken as regards consecration. We are not afraid to face anyone thererore I don't see that we need take the slightest steps with regard to Mr Campbell. If we were asked to do the same thing to-morrow we would u,t he,,itat, Mr Rowlands I think the less said the better. The resolution was then put and carried, all the I members voting for it. with the exceptioli of Mr Philip White, who remained neutral. THE RECTOR'S CHEQUE. I The Rector said the Board had paid him a cheque representing one year's interest upon the unpaid purchase money for the burial ground. The interest was at the rate of five per cent, but it was subsequently discovered that the Local Government Board would only sanction interest at the rate of four per cent. Therefore the course now to pursue was for him to give back the cheque for £G, and the Board would give him a cheque for the interest on X180 at the rate of four per cent minus income tax. ThiiJ course was adopted. A HAND BIER SUGGESTED. I Mr Marlay Samson suggested that it would be a beneficial thing for many poor people in the parish if a simple hand bier were provided for funerals. The Rector did not think that the people of Prender- gast had ever been put to expense iu the carrying of coffins. Mr Samson asked if it was not the custom for the coffin to be carried by means of straps. Hu thought that a simpler method would be to have a simple bier with handles. The Rector said a great difficulty would arise in taking the bier up to the chancel. The coffins were carried quite easily now. Mr Samson welcomed that opinion from the Rector, who could give the most valuable information on the subject. The Chairman There is not the slightest inconvenience at present. The people of Prendergast are very good in that respect. Mr George Davies believed the Prendergast people considered it a greater mark of respect to carry the coffin themselves than to have a baud bier. The Chairman Mr White has taken part in carrying most people since I have been here. Mr White, bowover, did not vouchsafe any opinion on the subject, and the Rector said that if the distances had been longer au ordinary wheel bier would be advan- tageous. The subject then dropped. A TOOL HOLSE. I Mr George Davies thought the Board ought to consider the matter of a tool house in the cemetery. At present the man in charge had no place in which to keep his tools. It was pointed out that a sub-committee had selected a site for a new house, and on the motion of Mr Samson, the Clerk was instructed to obtain an estimate for the erection of the building.

Albert Fetch, fisherman, Brooke Avenue and Fred Harries, Castle lerraco, were jointly charged with stealing a tray, a tuwel, and a tumbler, of the value of Is, :=-S- -u-T- the property of Richard White, the landlord of the Royal Hotel, Charles Street. John Williams, barman at the Royal Hotel, said the two defendants visited the bar that morning between 8.30 and 9 o'clock. The articles produced were similar to those missing from his bar, but he could not swear to them. Alfied Bowen, the landlord of the Spirit Shop, Hamilton Terrace, said the two defendants entered his bar that morning about 10.o0, both being slightly under the influence of drink. Fetch had a gas meter under his arm which he put on the counter. Witness ordered him out, but he refused to go, remarkiig that it would take four policemen to get him away.
