Printed and Published by "THE WELSHMAN" NBWS- PAPER AND STEAM PRINTING COMPANY (LIMITED), &<_ 123, Lammas-sti-eet, in the Parish of St Peter, In the County of the Borough of Carmarthen ,Friday, March 15th, 1895.
KIDWELLY COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTION. TO THE BDITOR OP THE "WELSHttAN." SIR,-No more strenuous fight has tsken place in the county of Carmarthen than the contest at Kidwelly between Mr Stephens and Mr Stead. Mr Stephens' opponents are always strong ones, and be fought and won two bard battles agaiost different candidates six and three years before, only less severe than this. Mr Stephens' friends aie much disappointed that success did not favour him again, but they have the satisfaction of reflecting thiat they fought fairly and squarely, and ought certainly to have succeeded in returning him. Mr Stephens, in spite of all the means employed against him, polled 22-46th of the votes given, and would, undoubtedly, have been returned but for one deplorable feature in the contest. It is, moreover, unfortunate that the change of representation in the County Council should come at a time when Mr J Lloyd Morgan's seat is threatened with opposition in West Carmarthenshire. We know, certainly, what everyone admits, that Mr Stead's election does not mean the slightest defection from Liberalism, and that not a single elector has changed bis polil ical opinions but still, somehow or other—and it is only natural-the Conservative Press and Con- servative party will be sure to believe that the re- placing of a staunch Liberal in the County Council of six years' standing by an untried Conservative must have a good deal of political significance, and will have the effect, beyond a doubt, of raising the hopes of the Conservatives of the West Division. Mr Gwilym Evans hit the nail right on the head at one of Mr Stephens' meetings when he said that the Conservatives were watching for the faintest sign of encouragement to the candidature of their man. This is a very regretable fact, and should have been avoided. But there is another question. Why was Mr Stephens defeated P and this raises very disagteeable reflections in every one who desires to keep elections free from any temptation of the electors to vote against their better selves. Several minor questions, that can only be understood at Kidwelly, contributed to bis opponent's soccess but the main though not the only cause of Mr Stephens' defeat was clearly what is known as the extraordinary stone traffic question. The other objectionable means of electioneering play some part in all elections, no doubt, everywhere, and it is little use railing at them so long as they are kept within moderate bounds. But at the present election too much cleverness was shown in decoying the working-man voter over to Mr Stead's side. Let us hope that when the General Election comes round it will be comparatively free from the element that worked so mischievously. The extraordinary traffic agitation has been for a long time worked very industriously by Mr Stead and his friends to Mr Stephens' discredit, and through ignorance of what it means, to'.d heavily against him. That he deserved a large majority all will admit, if position as employer and contributor to the prosperity of the constituency gives any claim to one. Mr Stephens' friends part with him as their repre- sentative with great regret, and hope they may look forward to renewing their relations with him three years hence. Yours, &o., A LIBERAL ELECTOR. LLANBOIDY. I COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTION.—The election of a county councillor for tbis parish was held at Llanboidy on Monday week, Mr James John, solicitor, Carmar- then, being the returning officer at Llanboidy, whiiat Mr Coysh was at the other polling station at Ffynon- wen. The polling commenced at 8 a.m. and closed at 8 p.m., and the poll was declared at 9.30 p.m., when only a few were present, and the remit was received very quietly, there being no public speaking, but probably, it would not be so very quiet bad the result been otherwise. The following was the declaration of the poll Mr Thomas Evans, Tegfynydd, 238; Mr David Thomas, Castelldrainog, 231 majority for Mr Thomas Evans, 7. Mr D Thomas was described as a Liberal, whilst Mr Thomas Evans ran as an Indepen- dent.

CARMARTHENSHIRE AGRICULTURAL I SOCIETY. The Financial Outlook. I There was not a large gathering of the subscribers at the biinual meetinc of the Agricultural Society, held at the Boar's Head Hotel last Saturday. Mr W Vincent How.-ll Thoroas presided, and there were present: Mr Edward Lewis, Cilletwr Mr John Francis, Jfyr'ie Hill; Mr D Prosser, Bri-aderwen Mr H J Davies, Bremenda: Mr J L:oyd Thomas, Tanlan; Mr R Fo, tman, Havodwen; Mr J Davies, Capeldewi; Mr H Da vies, Typicca; Mr S W Thomas, Rushmoor Mr J W Harms, Llandilo-Abercowin; Mr Griffithii, Xilwyndewi; Mr D Warren Lewis, Carmarthen; Mr Davies, Cwmaubach; and Mr D H Thomas, the Secretary. The Secretary said it was a new feature to reaa a statement as to the society's financial position, the usual course being only to appoint two auditors at the annual meeting but he thought it was due from him th"t he should state how they stood as regards money matters. There were arrears, of which he had a list, extending over the last four yetrs, and amau'. ting to E86 18s Od (" Oh "). He had experienced much trouble in trying to get in the subscriptions. There were severr.1 subscribers on the list to whom he had written about two doz.,n letters asking for payment of arrears, aod now they had given notice tbo'y did not intend subscribing any longer. He thought the society ought to give him inttructions to write a stiff letter to all who were in arrears. Mr J Lloyd TholUas-Have those you mentioned given notice to the society? Secretary—No, the majority of them have not. I think you ought to pass a resolution here to-day to help me to get ihtm in. I have estimated that the J586 18< arrears will realise 930. The secretary went on to say be had written to Mr Williams, secretary of the Llandiio Agricultural Society, asking for payment of :£3 10s for the use of pens, etc., for three years, but he had not succeeded in getting it, and the best pl-n would be to put the claim in the County Court Mr H Davies (a member of the Llandilo Society) said he would see to the matter. The Secretary, continuing, said the liabilities tonsi,ted of £ 14 0* 4d, chtques not presented; .£26 17.. caving prizes not yet p-id; and f,20, salary due to seert,tary, making a total of t60 17. 5d. The assets included R,24 Us 2d bslanoa that day at bank arrears (e.timated to realise) .£30; and other items, making a total of £ 61 18* 8d, so that when all their liabilities were paid, there would be a balance in hand of j61 Is 3d. That was n't a bright st--to of affairs, and they would be surprued to know the number of letters be had received from persons asking to be struck off tt-e subscription list. They were bound to raise the wind somehow, as the prizes had been fixed and paid in anticipation of all subscriptions being paid. Chairman—Are there any arrears from members who regularly exhibit. Secretary-Ob, no, I take care there are not (laughter). I received a wire just before leaving my office from Mr W J Buckley, saying he could not attend, as he was laid ap with influenza in London, and adding thikt he would be very pleased to return the pi ices he had woo for the benefit of the society ■ funds (hoar, hear). I would ask you to instruct me to write to all subscribers asking them to oontioue their sub. scriptions. I have to get about £450 somewhere to carry on the year's shows and pay all expenses it ie a very large sum, and you must help lie te procure ft. M< D Prosser-I know what it is very well. The Secretary said that other societies bad subscrip- tion booko, and every member et the committee collected as much as he could. The best remedy would 1>* to ctarlie entrance fees at the September Show, as was dOr;e at all other shows. At Llanelly they had 5s for ev,-rv entry, and made about £ 100 at the gats. At present gentlemen who had won about P.10 or 916 at a show, subscribed only one guinea; he believed a stipulation should be made that if a.an won.£6 he ahoald subacrib"- a guinea, and so on in proportion, and also piv entrance fees at the September Show. They had L65 in entries from the Christmas Show, and if this was so with the September Show they would be all right. He had been round the townspeople of Carmarthen, asking them to support the show better than in the past, and he had received £15, and had promises to the amount of £ 25 (hear, hear). The Chapman suggested that the beat plan would be to appoint auditors, and then di-ouss suggestions. On the motion of Mr Prosser, seconded by Mr Edward Lewis, Mr John Francis and Mr J Lloyd Thomas were re-elected auditors. Mr D Proseer said he bad always thought it unfair that persons who won 915 to 120 should not subscribe more than 10s 6d or a guinea. Mr R Davies, Typicca, said he had always made it a rule to double his subscription if he was successful at the show, and he hoped other exhibitors would do the tame i belir, hear). Mr John Fcancip said he sympathised with the gfcretary in tho trouble he experienced, as he knew something of subsariptions to shows himself. There Was mocb to be said for and against entrance fees at the September Show, and he suggested the appointment of a small et,mmities to go thoroughly into the matter. Mr Edwar » Lewi- said they onght also to distinguish a tenant farmer in their rules, and make a man with a rateable -alue of E200 and over pay óa entrance fee, and toO ard under, 2s6d. The Secretary having stated his opinion that a com- mittee might b« productive of benefit, Mr J Francis moved, and Mr Prosser seconded, the appointm-nt of a committee, consisting of Messrs J Lloyd Thomas, H J Davies, Edward Lewis, H Davies, Vincent Bowell Th< mas, John Francis, and the secretary, to consider tbt, financial position and to re- port opon it, togethtr with suggestions as to entry fees and the qualification of tenant farmers. The objection laid by Mr W S Marsh to the calving prize which had been awarded, was considered, and the Secretary alterwurds stated that Mr Marsh had decided to igi-e the prize money back in order to aogment the funds of the society. Mr J N Lewis, Cowin Grove, had laid an objection to the prize for swedes being paid, as they were not of the prescribed weight, and the objection was sustained. The Fat Stock Show. I On the proposii i(,n of Mr E Lewis, seconded by Mr H J Davies, it wa* decided to hold the December Fat Stock Show on Thursday, the 10th, the Chairman giving his casting vote in favoor of that date. The Secretary said he had been asked by Mr Francis to bring bis mo'ion before the meeting, that Ll sbould be deposited in case of an objection, and that it should be forfaited in case the objection was deemed to be Idvolons. Mr D Prosser seconded. An amendment to this, that the amount be 10s, was JUt. an l carried. The prize list for the Entire Horse Show was then revised, and, on the motion of Mr Davies (Bremenda), Seconded by Mr Harries, the cob stallion class was Struck cut. The Chairman said there was great dissatisfaction because people could not get to see the horses. There was an idea that they ought to have it held in a field. The Secretary said the only advantage in having it held in the Cattle Market was that they were sure of the gate-money. He admitted, however, that it was dangerous to the public. It wa decided to hold it there again, Mr Prosser Saying he would engage to make a ring. The Secretary Wt, will take that as a contract, and if it don't stand we won't pay you (laughter). The September Show. I Mr Simon Thomas moved that the revision of the Schedule of prizes be left till that day fortnight. Mr D Prosser seconded, and it was carried, the chairman remarking that they could revise the premiums for fat cattle, sheep, and pigs, and leave Ihlise of the dogs and poultry (as the secretary had Suggested) to a 8mail committee. In dealing with the premiums for cattle, the Chairman remarked that usually there were from 15 to 20 entered, Hot with the idea of competing, but for the purpose of being sold by auction, and, speaking for himself and Mr ITranois, be thought a change should be made, as it was hard upon the auctioneers. Mr E Lis-And they save the toll of the market. The Chairman said a charge of sixpence in the pound Woul-I be fair, and that was agreed upon. In the sheep classes the pens were reduced from five to three. The premiums for cheese not less than 40 The (60 The previously) will be divided in future between skim and fresh milk. The Secretary sait. there was another matter he irould like to bring before them an to the September Show, and that was as to the dinner. People woold not stay to it, "ntl wanted to get away ty train. It was now the custom at the best shows to have a dinner or luncheon in the show yard. There was some talk as to the judging, Mr Simon Thomas remarking that it was unreasonable to expect a man to judge the two entire horse olasses. The commi tee for revising the schedule of prizes for dogs and poultry was Mr D Warren Lewis, Mr Edward lewis Mr W V ti,w,,ii -.tuomas, ur J JN Lewis (Cowin Grove), Mr W Winter, and Mr Olive. The nam s of one or two gentlemen were mentioned as judges for the entire horses, and the remainder of the business was postponed to that day fortnight. How TO BE HAPPY, THOUGH MARRIED.

CARMARTHEN TOWN COUNCIL. I Budget for the Year 1895-96. I Carmarthen Town Council met on Tusstfay morning, I when the following were present:-The Mayor (Mr H Brunei White), Alderman 0 W Jones, Alderman R W Richards, Alderman E A Rogers, and Alderman T Davits; Councillors Howell Howells, D Parcell Rees, J Miller, D Jones, Walter Lloyd, W Vincent Howell Tbomae, James John, Jonah D.vies, H C Tifrney, N Colby Evans, W Vaughan George, and John Jones. The Mayor said the first business was to consider the estimates, and fix of the rates. The Town Clerk (Mr R M Thomas) then stated that it had been customary for some years past to set out )n detail the various items, and to compare them with those in the estimate for the pas' year, but no attempt was made to compare the estimate of the coming year with the expenditure of the past year, which was the object to aim at, and the result ht-dbein that the estimatett had not corresponded with the expenditure. To some extent they were aiike, but in detail they were widely different. He bad gone through them, and had compared them for the past 15 years or more, and he found, taking one of the most important labour and materia's for streets and roads—the expenditure had never been less than from 15 to 20 per cent different from the estimate, and in some cases it bad been es much as 50 per cent more or less than the estimate. They had three forms of account, two of them entirely different from that in which the treasurer kept his account, and a third torm in which they were submitted to the Local Government Board. He had made an attempt to bring these three forms of account into some sort of agreement. Llist year be had authority to start an expenses book, the headings of which correspond with the Government return. That had been made up for the past year, and showed the expenditure under the different heads. He had orawn up the estimate for the coming year in accordance with those heads, so that, if this form was approved, the amount would correspond in some degree with the estimates, and also with the accounts they bad to submit to the Local Government Board. There was another matter to which he would like to draw attention. It had been the custom to take credit in the estimate for the different stms they expected to receive on account of the tates, and that of oourse was right, b-;t there was one tbiogthnthad not been taken into ac- count as muca as it mibt-tbatllome of these amounts, for which credit was given, did not come in till the end of the financial year, so that, practically, they were working for the grea' er part of the your with an over. drawn account, ou which they were paying interest at the banker's. Take, as an example, one item in the borough rate account. They took credit for the surplus rent of the markets, which did not come in till the 1st, of January next year, not until nine mbnths of the financial year had passed. That did not matter so very much, as there was a considerable sum to the credit of the market account, and the balance* ran together, and they only paid interest on the net deficiency still, that baUnce was only to be built tip, and did not reach the full amount till the end of the year. The moiety for police pay and clothing, amounting to nearly S500, would not be due until the 25th of September next, and would not be received till January, so that, in taking credit for it now, they were taking credit for an item which ought to be discounted by twelve months' interest. Tbeo, there wu.. payment from the County Council, that in respect of main roads, which came to £ 300s; 'hat was due on the 26th of March this year, bat the County Council took ten months' credit, and did nit pay it over till January in the next year. Representations bad been made to them about that, but without effect. The result of all this was, that the accounts were over- drawn at the bank, and only came right at the end of the financial year, 80 that they had to pay interest on £4:2 overdrawn on the district rlite account, which amounted to rather more than a penny rate, and £ 17 on the borough rate account, making together nearly 960, on which they had to pay interest. He thought it ex- tremely desirable that they should build up a sort of credit balance, which would enable them to carry on without overdrawing to such a serious extent, aod the only way to do that was to provide somewhat liberally ia the estimated expenditure, so that they might have coming in a little more than they were likely to spend, and so gradually get on good terms with their bank account. In the estimates, he had suggested rates the same as those for the expiring year. The district rate would seem to aim it of a redaction of 2d, but owing to an increased expenditure by the School Board that would be taken away when they came to consider he borough rate. The amount estimated as necessary for the School Board in the current year was j6350, but the actual expenditure was £500. and it was likely to be as much in the coming year, so that the sums of £150, in excess of the estimates for the two years, would nearly absorb what would be equal to a rate of 2d. The Town Clerk then prooeeded to go into the different items, taking first THE BOROUGH RATB. I The police wages were estimated at E910, as against d6907 spent in 1894-5, and (he clothing Z75, as t-gain-t L59, the extra cost being for more expensive great coats. The establishment charges, JE30, we e the same. To the Lunatic Asylum they paid £287, and the estimate was for 1230, that was at the raie they had been paying for lunatics; but, as they knew, their contribution to the Asylum ws s-ill under considera- tion in fact, there was a law suit pending, and what the result of that would be he could not say. It might be they would have to pay more or less than £ 230. For the school board he bad put down L500 as the probable expenditure of the coming year. The loans remained the same, £ 70. The salaries were f475, as against £ 478, and the establishment charges, JESO against L118, the latter being increased by alterations and repairs at the 'engine-house. For the coroner the amount was £30 against £ 24; for elections, £10 against £ 18; and then there was JE50 put down for legal expenses in respect of the litigation with the Asylum authorities. That was merely an estimate, because if the result was against them the expenses would amount to a great deal more; but if it were in their favour it woold be less. t25 was put down for the town bridge, 8S the ice had knocked away the face of one of the buttresses, which would have to be repaired as sonn as the water would admit of it. They bad spent JE104 in clearing the river, but some of that, hich did not appear in the estimate, would come back in the shape of manure. [The Surveyor: Not this year]. For the coming year he had put down £ 75; weigh-oridge and crane, E39, the same; and mi-celleneous, S50, showing, with a balance of £100 due to bankers, a total of £ 2,749. The receipts would probably be for the crane and weighing machine, 1108; moiety of police pay and clothing, JE485 surplus rent of markets, 1.725 (against £799), as they had a good deal to do in painting this year fines and fees would probably amount to a little more, £ 145, and miscellaneous was the same, LIO leaving a deficiency to be raised by the rate of £ 1,276. That would be met by a rate of 9d, and be did not see how it could be reduced. The Mayor said the town clerk had given a very lucid explanation of the estimate of the borough rate. Alderman Rogers asked if the increase of E150 for the school board was likely to be continuous. Mr James John was afraid it might even inorease, though not in the coming year, as Extensive alterations were necessary at Pentrepoth School. He might call attention to the fact that the school board rate was only 3d and a third, although they had built the new school in Quay-street and the infant school at Pentrepotb. Alderman C W Jones did not go with the town clerk in the remark that they should build up a credit at the bank and thereby save the bank charges. It was the custom years ago to do that, and the result was that whenever anything was required to be done they were told Oh, we have not yet exhausted the amount of the rate." It was an incentive to them to go on spending money if they bad a large balance at the bank, and it would mean a larger sum than the present bank charges. A balance at the bank was like loose cash in a man's pocket, he could not rest till he had spent it (laughter). He thought the new form of estimate was preferable to the old one, but if the town clerk could see his way to do it he (Alderman Jones) would be glad if some in- formation could be given which was in the old form, bnt not in the new one. In the old form, for example, the salary of each official was stated now the whole of the talsries were put together and the lump sum given. He threw this out as a suggestion. The Town Clerk said to add a column would destroy the unity of the three accounts, which was what.be was aiming at, but it would be possible to give a little more information while adhering to the main headings. Alderman 0 W Jones produced a copy of the old est;mate, showing that the salary of each official was given, and said if all the salaries were put together they would in course of time lose sight of what each official was receiving. Tben with rexpect to the loans, it wonld impress upon their minds their indebtedness to the several offices from which the money was borrowed.: The Town Clerk said the form for the district rate was altogether bad, as you could not trace the expendi- ture under the different headings. At the same time, he had no objection to giving a little more information as to salaries and loans. Alderman Rogers c(.incided with Alderman Jones, LL .L.. -=_1t- I'o- .1. and said ne inougnt mat, more especially iux mo ucw members, the old forma would supply more informa- tion. There was an item in the borough fund to the amount ofjE902 13s 2d. It was confusing, and no one could make out what that was composed of. The Town Clerk-It is police pay there is no difficulty about that. It is the district fund where the difficulty comes ia. Mr Walter Lloyd—What is the total of the loans on the borough rate ? The Town Clerk said he could not tell off hand. It was 11,047, and now he should think it was about L700. Mr Lloyd-What did we get for the sand carted from Gas-lane ? The Surveyor-That was in exchange for the same quantity. Mr Lloyd- What do the bankers charge ? The Town Clerk-The treasurer told me the other day they were charging 4 per cent. Mr John-I suppose we should have in erest it we had a credit balance, the sarne as other public bodieit ? The Town Oierk-That has hardly arisen of lata years. Mr E Colhy Evans-What is estimated for the river gravel ? The Surveyor-I never took any it was only mud, which was carted from the bridge bank. Alderman Jones then proposed Ih,t. a borough rate of 9d in the £ be made, remarking that the Town Clerk aod the Surveyor h"d been hard lit worn on the estimate, and as the former was an able man at figores no doubt he would see his way to give the information aske i for. Mr D Parcell Rees seconded, and it was carried unanimously. I The General District Rate. The Town Cleik then proceeded to state that the I general district rate last year was 2i lOd. They stalled the year with a rather large balance due to the treasurer, bat made a rate that they thought would be sufficient to cover that. Well, withiu £100 or so that ,,vas done, because, although he estimated the balance due to the bank at E440, which was the foil estimate, there was dui for work already done £ 350— £ 320 trom property owners in now strtets, and £ 30 from the County Council in respec of Johnstown footpath. Then there was an item of £ 150 -a si to fr a hospital in laat years' expenditure which was not estimated for. The expenditore on the streets and roads was a little less than wAs estimated, the estimate for materials being JE385. and the expenditure on materials £ 365. Mr Walter Lioyd- Why was the estimate so high last year ? The Town Clerk replied that there was a good dea required for materials on new streets and roads thatl was not included this year. The expenditure was getting lighter, because the men had been employed doing work fo« which they would be repaid in Taber- nacle-tiirrace, Penuel-street, and the Avenue, and if they had not been so employed they would have been employed at the expense of the district rate. Whether the streets were the better for that was a matter for the council. The expenditure on main roads, labour and materials, last year, was f546, and be had put the same down in the eakimate for the coming year. The scavenging cost 4457, and be put half of that as spent on the main roads, so that they were spending £ 700 on the main road. and -reoeiving towards their mainten- ance from the County Counoil, J6308, and therefore they were either spending too much or receiving too little. Mr Walter Lloyd-What is the length of the main roads in the borough P Th", Surveyor-A mile and three quarters. A!4ermao Rogers-Are these two amounts oonfined to the main roads P The Town Clerk said there might be an error, but not a serious one, as the surveyor was responsible for the coot of labour and ma' erials, and had done bis beat to arrive at an accurate statement. Alderman 0 W Jones stated that the main road commenced at the top of ttas-lane, and continued through the town to Priory-street, ending at Furnace L)(140. The Town Clerk, continuing, said that £ 88 was spent on street improvements, including footpaths, last year, and he had put down 980. Then there was t457 for scavenging. In reply te Alderman 0 W Jones, The Town Clerk said it was £350 when it was done by contract, so that they were spending jEiOO a year more. Alderman Jones remarked that that was equal to a penny rate. Alderman Rogers said they should have tenders again, but he believed that, owing to the increased price of fodder, the contractor was allowed something for each borse. The Surveyor—6d. The Town Clerk, continuing, said the public lighting last year coat 9675, and be had put down Z600 for tbat, as in the coming year there would be extensions in the direction of Francis-terrace. For the fire brigade be put down jE30, as they spent L24 last year. For tewers the estimate was L35, and they spent 916 last year, but this year they were going to put up two new ventilating shafts,and that would account for the inorease. It did not include flushing, which came under the he"d of main roads. Mr Tierney aaid?hat in tbe cold weather tefore Christmas the men were standing up to their knees in water when cleansing the sewers, and it was suggested that balf-a-dozen pairs of seaboots should be procured. He did not know whether they were included. The Town Clerk said nothing was specfied. The Mayor said he believed they had included one pair. The Town Clerk went on—Salaries were put down at £385, and last Jelir they paid J6409. but now the surveyor discharged the office of sanitary inspector. Loans and interest, £654, would be 1650. For an isolation hospital* they spent 9140 in buying a site, and as there seemed to be a disinclination on the part of the council to comply with the requirements of the Local Government Board in this matter, and rather to build a hospital sufficient for their needs out of the rates, a sum of L100 was put down in the estimate to be set aside to. wards that purpose. If they wanted to get on quickly, something more substaotial would have to be dono. Replying to Alderman Jones, The Town Clerk explained that if they wished to build out of capital and to borrow money, they could only do so with the sanction of the Local Government Board, and iu thaI, calle plans would have to be sub. mi ted, which might cost 92,600 to carry out. As they did not see their way to incur each an expense, they thought it wouM be better to buy a site and put up a modest building that would cost £ 400 or £ 500. Alderman Rogers suggested the marking out of the lite with atonei, and the lettiog of the land. The Surveyor said the tenant was paying 30s rent for half an acre. Tue Town Clerk said that, lastly, he put down æ200 for contingencies. Alderman Jones—Why jE200 P The Town Clerk said that last year it was £150, and they bid all the expenditure of the past year accounted for, so that 4200 was only a liberal gum for the purpose. The credit did not call for much explanation. The sums in respect of the new streets would not come in for a considerable time. The surveyor would not finish the work before another six weeks had elapsed, and then there would be a period of three months before the amounts were recoverable, and it might be another two months after that before the money was got in. Alderman Rogers thought the accounts for the new streets would be kept separate from the district rate account. The Town Clerk said they were on the Surveyor's books, and could be so identified. Alderman R igers asked whether it would not have been well to have kept them out of the district rate P The Town Clerk said if that bad been done the amount would have been mi-leading, as the amount owing to the bankers would have been not t450 but L120. Alderman Rogers said it should be drawn out so that the public would know. The Town Clerk-The owners of property know, there is no doubt about that. Alderman C W Jones took exception to the item for contingencies. He did not see why they should be so liberal as to allow J6200. If they reduced it by 1100 they would save another penny. If it were possible he would like to reduce it. The Town Clerk said it was possible, but it was in reference to this that he suggested they should get on better terms with their bankers. Alderman Jones said he would rather spend S47 with the bankers than £ 100 in other ways. The Town Clerk-Do you find that an overdraft stops expenditure ? Alderman Jones—I think it does. The Town Clerk-Have you beard the question put when it was proposed to spend money, how much is there in the Bank P Alderman Jones—Yes. Mr Howell Howells agreed with the Town Clerk as to having a balance in hand. Of course, Mr Jones had an interest in it he got it back in the shape of dividend (laughter). Alderman Jones-I am not a shareholder in the bank. I wish I were. Mr John agreed with the Town Clerk, remarking that the overdraft reached nearly 460, or equal to a halfpenny rate, for which they got no return, and it would be far better if the council were to endeavour to get a balance in band in-tead of being continually over- drawing. He moved that a rate of 2s 8d should be made. Alderman Davies seconded the same. Alderman Jones moved that the amount should be reduced, as it would be by one penny. He did not see why the expenditure should be larger than it was last ear, a ad be proposed that the amount for contingencies should be £100. Mr W Vaughan George seconded, aod said that would be best. Mr John-Is that au amendment ? The Mayor said he thought so, and put it to the meetinz, when there were nine for and seven 8aaio8t, so that the som was reduced from zJUO to £ 100. Mr E Colby Evans-Is it settled what the rate is to beP The Mayor-I understood it was to be 2s 7d. Alderman Jones and Mr John rose together, and the latter was about to speak when Alderman Jones said— Will yon be quiet P Mr John—No; it is not for Mr Jones to call me to order. The Mayor-Allow me to call you to order, Mr John. Alderman Jones-By asking you to approve of what I proposed, that the contingencies should be put at £100 instead of £200- Mr John-That is why I rose to a point of order, and was asking whether it was an amendment to my motion, as it bad reference to the contingencies and not to the making of a rate of 2s 7d. I still move that the j rate be 2s 8d. The Mayor-I think Alderman Jones did say it would lessen the rate by a penny. Mr W Vaughan George-Then I propose the rate be 2s 7d, instead of 2s 8d. Mr Tierney fecon ted the same, having previously said he agreed with Alderman Jones in what he said as to following the traditions of the past. There was some force in the remark that when there was a large I over,1raft at the bank people were afraid to spend money. Alderman Rogers supported, and said it was dis- tioctly understood by Alderman Jones that in moving to reduce the estimate by a £100 the rate would be reduced a penny The Maror vas about to put it, when Mr E C- lby E'ana asked what difference it would make io the collection of the rate. I The Town Clerk explained that 2s 8d divided into four, and it WOI ked out without any portion of a penny. If chore was a fraction less than a halfpenny, you could not collect it, and would lose £15 or 416 in the collection. Mr Walter Lloyd-But if you were to lose on one you could get it on another. The Clerk—No it is a rate for the year. The Mayor pot the amendment, when the numbers were eijual, namely, eight each side. and his Worship gave his casting vote for the 2s 7d rate. Mr John submitted he had no right to do so, and should have first voted one way or the other. The Water Rate. I The Town Clerk next made a statement 88 to the water rate estimate. Salaries were estimated at £ 33 against L38 expended laat year. Labour, J6195, coal, i 146, and rents, j611, were the same. Repairs were put down at £60, against JE62, and establishment charges at Z25, against L32, as the cost of printing would be less 95, against L15 for analysis, and £ 35, against 278, for miscellaneous, owing to less being required for the pumpmg station. Then it WIIS suggested that there should be a new main to connect the pumpa with Springfield, and the estimate for that was JE60. The present reservoir Was not high enough to supply the upper part of the town, and that had to be done at the expeose of the lower. There was, consequently, a suggestion to pomp from the Springfield well, and the upper part of the town would be supplied from that well, so that there would be no'necessity then for cutting off the water from the lower part of the town, except when there was actual scarcity. Last year the water was frequently cut off, not bee-uoe there was not enoogh water, but because there was not enough pressure to send it up to the Terrace. He thought the estimate of E60 woult be within the mark. The balance due to the bankers was estimated at L70. As a matter of fact, th-re would have been a credit to the water rate account of £ 180, if they had not exceeded that in the estimate by £ 250, leaving a net deficiency of 470. The amount to be raised by the rate was £664, and a rate of 8d in the £ for domestic, and lOd for manu- facturing purposes, would prodace about E660. This was the rate for the past year. Alderman Rogers approved of the suggestion made by the surveyor with respect to Springfield, and moved that a rate be made of 8d and lOd in the £ as stated. Mr Daniel Jones seconded, and it was carried. l The Keeping of Pigs. The first motion on the agenda was one in the name of Mr D Jones, with respect to the keeping of pigs. He stated that a meeting was held the previous night, many being present who kept pigs, when a resolution was passed in favour of asking the council to reduce the distance between a house and a pigetye from 80 to 60 feet, and to petition the Local Government Board to sanction the alteration of the bye-law accordingly. He remarked that the late Town Clerk used to tell them that his best milking covi was the Corporation, and he (the speaker) believed it was. The Mayor—Have you heard what the present Town Clerk baa said P Mr Jones said he had not, but he asked them to show their sympathy with the poor cottagers to whom the keeping of a pig was a great assistance. The Town Clerk said the petition sent in was signed by 50 or 60 persons, but the difficulty was that the Local Government Board had sanotioned the bye-law which had been actually in force six months, and he did not think if they went to the Board again, and asked them to approve of an alteration, they would be likely to meet with much encouragement. The Mayor remarked that some pigstyes were not 50 feet from the houses, and a large number had signed the petition who were not keeping pigs. Mr W Vaughan George-Does the fact that the by. law was passed recently preclude us passing a resolu- tion ? The Clerk—No; but it will preclude you from being listened to by the Local Government Board. You go to them in September with bye-laws which you had before you for the space of a year, and you ask for their saDotion to bye-laws as the result of your deliber- ations, and now in six months time you ask them to change it. Mr W Vaughan George-We have had experience of the working of it now. Mr D Jones-If we petition the board, I don't think they would object. Mr W Vaughan George seconded the motion, and remarked that if anything could be done it should be done. Mr John said they had to consider not only the health of the town, but the circumstances of the poorer ratepayers, many of whom had been in the habit of keeping a pig to enable them to pay the reat, For that reason he supported the motion. In reply to Alderman Rogers, The Town Clerk said that in the model bye-laws no distance was specified for the keeping of pigs. That was fixed by the counoil. Mr D Jones could not see why it should be so great, especially in a place like Johnstown. The Mayor said the surveyor had to go round, and see where pigs are kept. Mr Tierney said that 80 feet might be necessary in a thickly-populated town, but not in a suburb like Johnstown or Lammas-street, on that side towards the river. The Town Clerk said that there were more persons keeping pigs in Johnstown than anywhere, and that was a strong argument in committee. The Mayor remarked that swine fever broke out there. Mr D Jones remarked that there was a row of houses in Priory-s'reet, with gardens at the back sloping towards the river, and yet they could not keep them. Mr Tiemey said it was the same in Lammas- street. The Mayor then put the resolution, and it was carried, nine voting in favoor of it, that a petition be sent to the Local Government Board in favour of an alteration of the bye-law. Appointment of Overseers. I Mr John moved a resolution in favour of adopting section 33 of the new Local Government Act, which confers on a Pdrish Council the power to appoint overseers and assistant overseers, He said it seemed if they did not apply, the appointment would rest with the Distinct Council. Mr E Colby Evans seconded. Mr Jonah Davies supported, but gave his view of the law, which led to some discussion. Mr Tierney said as it would simply take from the borough justices the power of appointment-and it was not suggested they had not exercised it well-he would move an amendment that the appointment remain in the bands of the justices. This was not seconded, and the motion was put and carried by a large majority. Mr E Colby Evans ouggesteirtkat four larger gratings should be placed at points he indicated to carry off the storm water. Mr John Miller seconded, apd after some discussion the matter was referred to the Public Works Com- mittee. The Fair Days. I Mr Vincent Thomas asked whether the banks would be open on the fair days. The Town Clerk said they would not be; that was quite certain.

At Cardigan a Liberal Unionist, Mr Morgan Richardson, beat the old Liberal member, Mr James Stephens, in the South Ward of the borough by a mijority of 74, which is more than one-fifth the number of electors polled. Mr Morgan Riohardson contested on Independent principles, while his opponent was recognised as a thorough Liberal. At the same time, it is nor, altogether a party triumpb, for the victor is a very popular man, and one who does a great deal of good, not only at Cardigan, but all over the district. The excitement throughout the day was very great. As late as twenty minutes to nine, a short time before the declaration of the poll, a bet of 1,000 to I on Stephens was offered by one exoited individual. A grand torchlight procession had been arranged to escort Mr Stephens home, but at ten minutes to nine the tables were completely turned by the Mayor (in whose firm Mr 8tephn. is a partner) declaring the poll as follow8 Morgan Richardson, C U 200 S(ephono, R N 126 Unionist majority. 74 When the actual state of affairs was grasped the cheer. ing was enthusiastic in the extreme. Mr Morgan Rtehardson was at once chaired through the town, and a carriage being obtained, he was dragged round i. triumph the oftond time. The electors were thanked at the Guild-hall. Bridgend, and from the windows of the Prince of Wales Inn. The church bells rang merry peals, and everything was done to celebrate the viotory in a suitable manner. The result is the gain of a seat for the Unionists. Aberporth Dititriot- Mr Joshoa Hughes, N L. Llangoedmore Dittrict-Mr D S Jones, N L. Llaodugwydd Dist riet- Colonel J R Howell, 0 0.
