MONMOUTH. Agent.—Mr. Caifreji, Bookseller, Monmouth. TOWN COUNCIL.-The Mayor, Councillor H. Baillie, presided a', the monthly meeting oo Monday. The Drainage and Electric Light Committee reported that Mr Cotterell, Bristol, who had been called in, had inspected the septic tanks for sewage disposal, and had found them a failure. The cement was, it was alleged, no according-to specification, and contained a quantity of lime and ashes, substances which should be rigorously excluded. The foundation of the tanks was too soft, and the cracks were caused by two of the tauks subsiding. It would be necessary to have new tanks, and, if another site could be obtained, it would be better. If not, Mr Cotterell recommended ero-cement tanks, supported by pillars from the solid foundation, at a cost of about £ 1,800. Legal advice had been obtained, and th» Couucil went into committee to consider the liability of the engineer and contractor.
