I URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. A meeting of this body was held on Monday evening, when the Chairman (Mr J. T. Horniblow, J.P.) alluded in fitting terms to the ending of the war in South Africa. The Monmouthshire County Council having written to draw the attention of the Council to the over-loading of vehicles, it was decided to ascertain what other districts were doing in the matter, with a view to adopting a bye-law to put a stop to it. Mr H. S. Lewis, collector, applied for an increase of salary. He was now receiving J625 per annum, and he urged that he was the lowest paid official in the Chepstow Union.—The application was adjourned in order to obtain information as to the salaries paid in other places. The Committee who had inspected the town arch- way recommeuded some minor alterations. It was said that the larg-e flag staff was weakening the building, but the Committee were sati&fied that no damage bad been done. Regarding the provision of seats for the Castle Dell and along the river bank, Mr E. Dutson raised a protest against these seats being wantonly destroyed by roughs.— It was decided that a strong complaint be made to the superintendent of police, to issue a reward for X5 for the detection of offenders, and to place some fresh seats in the Dell. The Medical Officer (Dr Gwynne Lawrence) reported that five deaths and four births had occurred in April. Since the last meeting five cases of scarlet fever had occurred in the same locality of the town. The outbreak Originated with a girl, who returned from Newport suffering from the disease. Isolation had been effected in all the cases, and there had been no fresh notification. It was decided to allow the employees of the Council two half-holidays on the occasion of the Coronation, and to give each man-there are fi ve-a, gratuity of five shiliiogs. The estimate was presented, and it was resolved to levy a general district rate of 3s.
