CAMROSE. Parish Council.—The annual meeting of this Council was held at the North Council School, when there were present: Rev. J. tiiluert Rees, Messrs. J. Alarr, Thomas Ala- thias (Dudwell), Wiliiain Bevans, John Har- ries, W. Fry, Levi Griffiths, T. H. Mathias <Wolfsdale), and the Clerk (Mr. John Berry). Rev. J. Gilbert Rees and Air. W. Hancock were re-appointed chairman and vice-chairman re- spectively for the ensuing year. The an- nual accounts were passed. The overseers for the year are Messrs. William Berry, White- horn, and John Thomas, The Kilns. The chairman, having been deputed by the Coun- cil to interview the Clerk of the Peace as to the proper method of obtaining possession of the parish tithe map, reported that the Parish Council must make application to the County Council to obtain it for them, but that the latter must first be satisfied that the Parish Council has a receptacle for its safe custody. It was decided that if a new tithe map could be obtained for a sov- j ereign or less, it should be done, but should it cost more, the matter should be referred back to the Counci-1 for further consideration The chairman and Mr. Fry were authorised to obtain prices, etc. A long discussion arose as to the improper rolling of the county main roads. It was stated that the roads are too much rolled. The face of the roads, however good, is picked up, road material is put on, and the road is rolled to such an extent that the new material is reduced to powder, which is afterwards blown away by the wind, or washed into the gutters by the first shower of rain. The road is really worn out before it is used, and becomes in wet weather a disconnected series of mud and water pools. Could this unnecessary work of the steam roller be transferred to some of our parish roads, the stones, the greater number of which are now kicked into the grip, would set earlier than they do at pre- sent, and the ratepayers would be greatly relieved in pocket, temper, and in the wear and tear of their vehicles. The Council gen- erally concurred in the complaints made, and expressed a wish that those who have control of the main roads would see whether it was not possible to improve (?) the roads at less expense than at present. »
