URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. A meeting of this body was held on Tuesday evening. Mr A. Ll. Edwards presided, and there were also present, the Rev. D. Bevau Jones, Messrs J. H. Taylor, W. Welisford, H. Crease, and L. F. Stedman. A letter was read from Mr T. H, Hazall, secretary -to the Newport Gas Company, referring to the statement made by the Council That the promise to place Caerleon on the same footing as Newport as regards the Gas supply was conveyed 'to a deputation from my Council which waited upon the -directors of the Newport Gas Company on the 23rd February, 1901, through their chairman Mr LavbouiltJe." Mr Mazell very much regretted that the controversy bad arisen, but with the greatest .Te,-pect for your dapution's version of their inter- view with my board, I am bound to say that the same is entirely at variance with the recollections .of my directors." He then dealt at length with the matter. After one or two of the members had ex- pressed an opinion as to the accuracy of the Gas Company's memory, Mr Taylor moved that the -consideration of the letter be deferred, to give the -Council time to see whether they would not be able to soon secure a better illuminant than gas.—The Rev D. B. Jones seconded, and the motion was carried. A resolution was unanimously passed pledging the .Council's support to the Monmouthshire County 'Council in their efforts to put down the overcrowd- ing of vehicles, mention being made of the crowded condition of some licensed brakes which passed through Caerleon. Mr Green reported that he had collected £ 60, .leaving £ 272 9*. to be got in. Dr De Gruchy reported the district free from infectious disease. In accordance with notice, the Rev D. B. Jones moved that the salary of the Medical Officer be .increased from £ 10 to ;C20.-Bir Taylor seconded, -and after Mr Crease had spoken the motion was carried unanimously. The Surveyor reported that the sewer extension in Railway-street had been constructed at less than vfche estimated price. The Surveyor was instructed to remove the alleged obstruction erected by Miss Powell, of Gold- croft Common, should that lady fail to take the fence down. Mr Welaford drew attention to a remark passed recently at. a sale of property belonging to the Duke of Beaufort, that the Caerleon Council had rendered themselves amenable to the law.It was etated that the Duke of Beaufort was lord of the manor of Caerleon.-In the absence of the clerk ■-thro' illness, the consideration of the matter was deferred.
