I DISTRICT C3UN0IL MEETING. At the Council meeting on Tuesday the members present were Mr A. Ll. Edward-! (Chairman), the Rev D. Bevan Jone, Messrs T. Parry, J. H. Tayl or, L. F. Stedman, D. W. Jenkins, H. Crease, W. Welsford, and J. Green, with the Clerk (Mr T. R. P, Herbert), the Medical Officer of Health (Dr. de Gruchy), and the Surveyor (Mr Harris), A number of ratepayers alsj attended with reference to the recant proceedings taken by the Council against Mr Evan Thomas, for an alleged breach of the bve-laws. The Clerk reported the result of the ease against Mr Thomas, which was dismissed with costs. Mr Taylor said it was a great pity that the proceedings had been so delayed, and askod why steps had not been taken in the matter earlier. The Clerk said that personally he had no idea that the houses in respect of which proceedings had been taken, had been occupied. He had been blamed outside the Council for the loss of the case, because he bore the brunt of the proceedings. This was not rigkt, and he declined to accept responsibility. Mr Stedman thought it very strange that the houses should have been occupied since September, and yet the matter was not reported to the Council until January. The correspondence with Mr Thomas should have been produced in Court. As it was, the Council were the laughing stock of the district. Their officials should have got up their case better. The Clerk resented these remarks, and added that it was not Mr Stedmau's place to advise their legal adviser. After further discussion it was decided to take further action against Mr Thomas for an alleged breach of the bye-laws in the case of two other houses in the same block as th -)so in respect of which the unsuccessful proceeiiugs were taken. The reports of the Surveyor and Medical Officer of Health were read, and the health of the district was reported to be very satisfactory. — ——
