I TOWN COUNCIL. At the monthly meeting on Monday, the Mayor (Councillor A. E. Jones) presiding, A discussion took place respec'ing the sheep removal restrictions, which interfered with the Monmouth market. Farmers living within two miles and some ratepayers were prevented from taking sheep to the market, especially from the Herefordshire side. It was decided to support a petition which was being circulated to send to the Board of Agriculture on the subject. Mr Sambrook referred to the attempt being made by Newport to have the assizes removed from Monmouth, and thought that the Hon. J. M. Rolls should be thanked for opposing it at the recent County Council meeting. He urged the getting up of a petition. Mr Ballinger repudiated a statement that Monmouth had not the necessary accommodation for people attending the assizer, and said the hotels could receive 300 people at a moment's notice. The matter was referred to a committee. Mr E. Arnott's action in stopping a footpath on the Kymin was reported on by the Highways Committee, who considered there was ample evidence of the public character of the path, but they did not think it was of sufficient importance to recommend any legal action being taken. After discussion, the report was adopted. The treasurer's estimates showed a deficiency on the borough fund of L280 (about half of last year). and £ 3,953 on the general district rate, the latter equal to about 48 6d in the £ at which it had been of late.
