LLANELLY BOROUGH COUNCIL. I THE PROPOSED FEVER HOSPITAL. I THE QUEEN'S DIAMOND JUBILEE. The adjourned monthly meeting of the Borough Council was held at the Town Hall on Monday, Mr. D. W. Rees presiding, there being also present: Messrs. J. Griffiths, E. Trubshaw, J. Maybery. J. Thomas, Tom Hughes, W. Howell, Ellis Evans, D. Thomas, J. S. Tregoning (jnnr.), J. Hansard, C. F. Thompson. R. Guest, and Joseph Williams, together with the clerk (Mr. H. W. Spowart), and the surveyor (Mr. G. Watkeys). A VOTE OF CONDOLENCE. I The Chairman said that he had to propose a vote of condolence with the widow and family of the late Mr. H. J. Howell. The deceased gentleman had been for years chairman of the Council and held at the time of his death the position of chairman of the Llanelly School Board. It was very calamitous to lose so many of their public men. The deceased gentleman's loss would be keenly felt. Mr. J Griffiths seconded and remarked that ( nobody would miss the deceased gentleman more than he would. The vote was passed in silence. A DEPUTATION FROM THE HOSPITAL. ] The Chairman said there was a deputation from the Hospital Committee outside who wished to appear before the Council. The deputation con- sisted of Messrs. R. Maclaran, Samuel Bevan, F. R. Randell, W. Pugh, Major Bythway and the secretary (Mr. F. L. Rees). Mr. Maclaran said that they had come there as a deputation to ask the Urban District Council to give their support to the Hospital Special Com- mittee, who intended raising a fund for the benefit of the hosoital in order to commemorate the fiO years' reign of their Queen. He would read out a resolution passed by their committee to the effect that a deputation wait upon the Urban District Council for the object of obtaining their support to raising subscriptions for the erection of a children's ward in the hospital. He asked them to select two of their members to sit on the special committee as the representatives of the Council. There would be two members from the County Council, School Board, and the Board of Guardians. There were in the hospital a number of children, and he did not think it proper that the children should be in the sarne room as the adults. The Chairman said that jubilee schemes were on foot in all parts of the country and he did not see why they should not support a scheme at Llan- elly. Mr. Maclaran remarked that the Council should pass a resolution of support. Mr. Guest thought they should get the voice of the ratepayers in this matter. He suggested that they should call a town's meeting. He would not like to vote for any special resolution until a meet- ing of that kind had been held. Mr. S. Bevan said that the special object in their appearance that day was in reference to the children's ward. Mr. J. Griffiths endorsed the remarks of Mr. Guest. Mr. Maclaran said that they required a ward for 12 or 14 children. The Chairman Altogether the sum necessary is about £ 2,000. Mr. Maclaran replied in the affirmative. Mr. F. Randell said he was disposed to take Mr. Guest's view on the matter. The Chamber of Com- merce were of opinoin that a public meeting should be first convened. The Chairman remarked that the Council would give the question their careful consideration. The deputation then withdrew. Mr. Trubshaw proposed that a public meeting be called to discuss the matter. He would like to see the hospital placed in a favourable financial position. Mr. J. Griffiths seconded. It was decided to hold the meeting on Wednes- day of next week at 8 p.m. THE BIGYN AS A SITE FOR THE FEVER HOSPITAL. I After the Clerk had read the minutes of the Sanitary Committee, Mr. Thompson objected to the fever hospital being placed on the Bigyn. The Bigyn was not a favourable place, as it was so thickly populated, and it has an increasing district. Not only that, but shortly the new Intermediate college would be opened and scholars would be passing that way to school. He thought that the sands would be the best spot for the hospital. Mr. Tregoning said'that the matter had not yet been settled, but that the surveyor had reported that the Bigyn was the best place for it. Mr. Thompson: I suggest that you place it on top of Old Road (laughter). Mr. Tregoning I don't mind at all if it was next door to me (laughter). Mr. Trubshaw suggested that the wording should be "thatthe Bigyn site and others be considered. The suggestion was agreed to. LLWYNHENDY WATER SUPPLY. I A letter was read from Mr. D. C. Edwards asking if the Borough Council could give any reply to the Rural District Council as to supplying Llwynhendy with water from the town reservoir. The Chairman remarked that the question had not been further considered. It was decided to convene a special meeting to consider the question. WAUNLANYEAFON. I A letter wasiread from Mr. T. J. Williams, asking whether the Council had decided anything in respect of the improvement of the approaches to the Park by an arrangement with the above estate. It was decided that the question be considered at a special meeting. THE EMBANKMENT. I A letter was read from Mr. J. S. Tregoning, junior, enclosing the resolution passed at the public meeting held at Bethania Chapel, in connection with the raising of the embankment. The Chairman said that the opinion of counsel had arrived, but it should be considered, he thought, in private. It was resolved that the question be discussed at the special meeting [ MISCELLANEOUS. The use of the Market Hall was granted for a concert in aid of the distressed 4inplaters. A letter was read from Mr. Mortimer Green, thanking the Council for the use of the Town Hall for the meeting of the court of governors of Aberystwyth College. Messrs. Joseph Williams, J. Hansard, and Tom Hughes were appointed to act on the Jennings' Memorial Committee. Dr. Sydney J. Roderick was reappointed medical officer.
