URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. The fortnightly meeting wis held on Monday night, Mr J. r. Horlliblow presiding. The Chepstow Gas Company replied to the Council's letter of March 25th, sending in an amended tender for lighting lamps, offering to light 27 all night lamps at C3 14a per lamp, and 51 short time lamps, including moonlight iiightp, or E179 for the year, and saying that they could make no reduction. They further tendered to light and extinguish the lamps, clean, and repair cocks and burners for X42. The tender was accepted, being a reduction of L6 upon last year's price. Messrs. Arthur Ernest Rymer and Gilbert Henry Blandford were appointed overseers. Mr Child, in accordance with notice, raised the question of the employees' wagos, which were at present 17s, with Is. extra for Sunday work, advoca'ing a better rate of pay.—After some discussion, it was resolved that the Surveyor be empowered to pay efficient men not exceeding JBI a week, to include Sunday duty. The Chairman referred to the expiration of his term of office at the next meeting, and thanked the members for their support; the clerk and surveyor for their courtesy and assistance, and the members of the Press for their fair reports. Mr Dewdney moved a vote of thanks to Mr Horniblow for his services as chairman during the past year. The motion was put by the clerk and carried with acclamation, and the Chairman briefly replied. The Clerk mentioned that he had seen Mr Whalley with reference to the piece of ground at one time the site of the old "Bridewell" or lock-up, at the back of the premises he had purchased in Moor-street, and Mr Whalley had offered to give £ 10 for it, and pay the cost of the conveyance. It was decided that the surveying committee should first inspect the property.
