PEMBROKE TOWN COUNCIL. A meeting of the Pembroke Town Council was held on Tuesday afternoon at the Corona- tion School, Pembroke Dock, when there were present the Mayor (Mr. F. S. Reed), Aldermen W. Jones, J. Hutuhings, W. Smith, W. M. Griffiths, W. Phillips, and Dan Davies, Messrs. A. McColl, J. Jones, J. Lawrence, 1. Ward Davies, Rees Phillips, T. Davies, W. Evans, W. Robinson, J. Morgan, F. A. Boby, C. Young, J. Grieve, A. F. Beddoe, F. P. Tombs, J. Lewis, B. Hancock, with the town clerk (Mr. R. D. Lowless), the medical officer (Dr. Howard D. Reynolds), the borough accountant (Mr. H. M. Rice), the borough surveyor (Mr. K. Mc- Alpine), and the inspector of nuisances (Mr. P. Morgan). INFECTIOUS DISEASE. The Medical Officer reported that in the Pembroke division two cases of scarlatina had been notified since the last meeting of the Council. The surveyor's and inspector's reports were read and adopted. A NEW ACT. The Town Clerk read a synopsis of the Pub- lic Health (Amendment) Act which came into force on January 1st, and pointed out that it would be advisable to adopt certain of the provisions. It was decided that copies of the Act should be supplied to each member of the Council, and that the Sanitary Committee of each ward should report on the matter. A LITTLE MISUNDERSTANDING. Some discussion took plare on one of the recommendations of the Pembroke Highways Committee, that Mr. Ford's permission be asked to take down a wall. Mr. Ward Davies pointed out that the wall had been built not on Mr. Ford's land but on Mr. Barker's land, and the latter had objected to the wall being there, and requested them to tear it away. Ht> moved that that recommendation be deleted from the report. Mr. Lewis said that the effect of building this wall had been to turn water into other people's cellars. The wall ought to come down at once. Mr. Beddoe said that it was a very small matter. The wall was only about six feet long, and had been built by the surveyor with the best of intentions. He thought that the best course would be to refer the matter back to the committee. Mr. Boby said that some other work besides the pulling down of the wall would be re- quired, unless they wished to create a danger. Eventually it was decided to eliminate the phrase dealing with Mr. Ford's consent being obtained. A DRAINAGE PROBLEM. A long discussion took place with reference to a drain from a house owned by Mr. Ford, which it was stated had not been connected with the main sewer. The Pembroke Sanitary Committee reported that they had instructed the surveyor to inspect the house, and if he found everything in order to pass the plans. This was taken exception to by Mr. Lewis and Mr. Tombs, and the latter became some- what heated, and had to be called to order by the Mayor. He contended that the inspector had reported that he could not pass the drain- age, and now the committee were snubbing him and trying to get the surveyor to pass it. Eventually the matter was put to the vote, and the minutes were adopted, none of the Pembroke Dock members voting.
