NEATH TOWN COUNCIL. I The monthly meeting of the Neath Town Council was held at the GuildhaIl; on Monday afternoon, Mr Edward (mayor) presiding.—The I Town Clerk read the minutes of the committee appointed to consider the parliamentary schemes, together with the surveyor's report, the latter being a comprehensive description of the different schemes affecting the borough, with suggestions. It appeared that if each of the schemes received parliamentary sanction, vessels entering the harbour would have to pass no less than four bridges. The harbour commissioners thoug-htthat scheme No. 4, that of the Great Western Railway Company for a junction between their main up-line and the low-level line, might safely be allowed and en- couraged. There appeared to be a difference of opinion in the committee upon this point, but the majority favoured the views of the harbour com- missioners. The commissioners were of opinion that the scheme of the Rhondda and Swansa Bay Company fcr crossing the river by means of a viaduct ought to be strongly opposed, an opinion in which the committee of the council thoroughly acquiesced. With regard to the bill of the Neath Water Company for the construction of a reservoir on the land of Mr Charles Evan Thomas, of the Gnoll, the Clerk was directed to ascertain whether the company were disposed to sell the undertaking to the cor- poration, and if so, upon what terms; A reply had been received from Mr Pole, the secretary and manager, that the company were not desirous of selling the works, but that they would con- sider any definite proposal by the corporation for the purchase thereof.—The Mayor moved the confirmation of the minutes of the committee, which was seconded by Mr Alderman Gwyn, but an amendment by Mr Councillor Charles to defer the matter until after the meeting of the 26th inst. was carried. A letter was read from Mr Howel Gwyn that he could not approve of the plan for the erection of a hall at a cost of;63,000, and he thought £5,000 should be expended.—A long discussion ensued.— Mr Counciller H. P. Charles moved-" That Mr Alderman Gwyn be respectfully informed that the council has taken his letter into considera- tion, and do not fell themselves justified in adopting the L5,000 plan, but that the council still hopes Mr Alderman Gwyn may be induced to look with favour upon the alternative scheme." Mr D. Davies moved an amendment— That the L5,000 plan be adopted." Mr Bartlett seconded. The motion was carried, and the pro- ceedings shortly after terminated.
