BANGOR LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH. I The ordinary fortnightly meeting of this board was held 011 Thursday last, the loth iustatit, when there were present Messrs. Charles Kick null, Morgan Richards, (ieorge Simpson, John Roberts, and Mr T. Ll. Edwards, Clerk and Surveyor. On the motion of Mr George Simpaon, seconded by Mr Morgan Richards, Mr liicknell was voted to the chair. The Ports/iore at Gaith.-Tite Clerk said that appli- cation inlist be made to the i'ishop of liaugor in refer- euce to the foreshore from Mr Parry's shipbuilding yard to Glandwr Terrace. The matter was left in the hands of the Clerk. The End of the Deanjield Drainage Dificulty.—Tbe Cleck said that he had written to Mr DIXun, and had received the following reply Deai)fiel(I WurkB, Bangor, December 2, 1868 "SlK,—I duly received your letter of the 16th ult. I have subsequently seen you, and shown that Mr John Jones was under a misconception as to where he should build. You will be able to explain this to your board. I have not seen Mr Jones siDce. There is uo difficulty as to Mr Griffiths and myself carrying out our engagements (contained in my own letter to the .board of the 2nd May, 1866). If the tuildings had progressed, it would have been doue in oonformity. It will now be finished as far as houses are already built, and I shall be glad (for Mr Griffith and self) if you will make the maiu drain as far as the row of small cottages, and charge the cost to us. I have the proper pipes at this place, and will send them down as soon as you are ready for them.- Yours truly, For self and Griffiths, I F,. J. J. DixoN. "Thos. Lloyd Edwards, Esq." The letter was considered satisfactory. The Clerk explained that John Jones happened to meet him in the office, and he (the Clerk) asked him where he intended building. He pointed out a spot which Mr Dixon did not approve of, and consequently the matter dropped. The Strand-street Drain.- The Chairman said they would remember that the Clerk's estimate of the proba- ble cost of this work was 1:3 17s 8d. The work was now completed, and he was glad to say that Mr Edwards had been able to carry it out at a reduction on that estimate of £1 3s. Had not the alterations been done, those living in the Ship Inn and adjoining houses would have been swilled in durifg the late heavy rains. The members remarked that the work was very satis- factory iudeed. Miscellaneous. -The Chairman then read a letter from Lord Penrhyn, stating that owing to a bad cold, he was unable to be present at the board. Several private improvement accounts were examined and passed. The Surveyor reported that during heavy rains Mr Griffith Davies's cellar was filled with water owing to there being a leak in the old drain. It was ordered that a gully be made to the main dram. The Recreation Ground.-Tlie Surveyor applied for permission to level a piece of ground on the mountain in order to make a bowling-green and croquet ground. He did not propose to employ any extra workmen to do the work, as the keeper of the ground could easily do it himself. The Chairman did not know where they could find a proper site on the mountain. The Clerk said there" ail room for a bowling and croquet ground. The matter was deferred to another meeting, when Lord Peurhyn would be present, in order to obtain his lordship's advice. The Penrallt-road.-A memorial, signed by a number of the respectable ratepayers of Upper Bangor, was read by the Chairman, asking for an additional lamp in Pen. rallt-road. Mr Simpson proposed that the application be referred to the Lighting Committee. The Chairman said the Lighting Committee had a similar application before them two or three years ago, and they then considered that they bad no right to light the road at all, as it was not a public one. No doubt the road was a nuisance, but if they were to put a lamp in every road in Bangor that contained nnis- auoes, their lighting expenses, instead of being X200 a year, would be £ 3 )0 or £400. There were very few places that were better lighted than Bangor was at the present time; as soon as they left one lamp, they came in sight of another. The Lighting Committee had done that, but on a back road hke that they did not feel justified to spend the money of the ratepayers. The board bad nothing to do with the road, and the question was, who last repaired it ? The Cletk said he did not believe the Board of Health ever repaired it. Mr Morgan Richards said they should know who did the road belong to, as it was very awkward in its pre- sent state. The Chairman said it would no doubt be a convenience to Upper Bangor to fix a gaa-lamp there, but the Gas Company would not be willing to give it without an extra expense on the ratepayers. Mr John Koberts said it was merely a private road to Penrallt. Mr Simpson—Yea, it is it has never been handed over to the town. The Clerk said they should know who put the road in repair last. Mr Kichards said the road was a very short cut to go to that part of Upper Bangor, in fact they might call it a necessity; and the question was, who was to repair it, and who was to light it. Mr Simpson said there was not so much difference if they went the other way. The Chairman said he would prefer going round a little than to go through that road. Mr John Roberts said that, if they were going to light the road, one gas-lamp would not be sufficient, but three at least would be required there. The field above the road was the property of Mr Hugh Roberts. The Chairman remarked that it would cost X5 or so to fix one lamp there it would not be much for the inhabitants of Bangor, who complained, to subscribe that sum, and then let the town pay the lighting ex- penw. Mr Richards objected, because Upper Bangor was a very important, probably the most important part of the town, aud paid by far the greatec part of the rates, so that it would not be right to ask them to subscribe any- thing. The Chairman said that as long as the road was not handed over to the Local Board, the least thing the Upper Bangor people could do would be to make a small subscription towards paying the expense of fixing a lamp there. Mr Simpson—But one would not do. The Chairman—No, it would be nothing. I think the better way will be for you to let Mr Roberts and I, as Lighting Committee, to report upon it. Mr Simpson remarked that that was the very thing he wanted in making his motion. The application was then referred to the Lighting Committee. Mr Roberts said that Mr White was with him that morning complaining that Brynteg Terrace, although it contained many lodgiug-houses, had no light in front, which made the place very dangerous at night. They ha.d more reason to complain than Penrallt. After a long and desultory conversation, the matter was left in the hands of the Lighting Committee. New Rate.-Tlie Clerk produced a carefully-prepared estimate for a new rate for the ensuing half-year. tfome of the members thought the medical officer's fee of ten guineas altogether unnecessary, and were of opinion that a more economical arrangement might be effected. It was therefore resolved that the present agreement with the medical officer be reconsidered at the expiration of three months, and that notice be given to Mr Humphreys to that effect. A conversation took place with regard to the possi- bility of reducing the item of wages by dispensing with the services of oue of the men, and it was suggested that the clerk might look after the men instead of Salisbury. It was agreed that Salisbury should be called in at the close of the meeting. After a minute examination of the clerk's estimate, a rate of 9d in the pound was allowed. The Cleik said he believed he could effect great livings in future, and he was almost certain the rate would be only 8et in the pound the next half year. The Repairing of Lamps.Several contracts were sent in for repairing the lamps of the town, and that of Mr John Doherty was accepted. Salisbury was then called in, and the Chairman, ad. dressing him, said that the board, in making out the estimate for the six months ensuing, had struck off one labourer's wages, and Mr Edwards could discharge one of the men. Before doing so, he would tell him ( Salis- bury) that in retaining him at the Local Board of Health they must have more manual work from him as la. bourerer. It would be for him to say whether he had any obj ection to be at work as early in the morning as the other men, and to do more manual labour. They would not discharge him if he had no objection to those tenm). b" S?isbury said he had no objection. The Chairman then said he must be at work the same as the other men. He would, however, receive the same wages as at present. Salisbury said that he would be satisfied, and he then withdrew. A Deputation.-A deputation, consisting of the Rev. Cauou Jones, Rev. Ellis Foulkes, Mr Griffith Davies, was then admitted to the room, and Canon Jones and Mr William Jones said that they came to support the iiTi\yer of the memorial iu regard to 1 enrallt road. The Chairman said that the matter had already been discussed, aud it had been referred to the Lighting Committee. A long conversation CSok place between Canon Jones and the Chairman, the latter saying that they as mem- Urs of that board must have regard to economy, as the lates were so heavy, but at the same time they might depend upon it their memoiial would have every atten- tion both from Mr Roberts and himself. After some further remarks, the deputation thanked the board and retired. The board then rose.
