THE POWERS OF COUNTY COUNCILS- I The Houso of Commons on Friday went into I Committee of Supply. In the course of the dis- cussion on the vote of £ 132,732 to complete the num for the J?octi Goremment Board, Mr Lloyd George said he desired to once more raise t?e question of the delegation of some of the smaller powers of the Local Government Board to the county councils, and to ask the President whether he would not take some steps to put his powers in that direction, under the Act of 1887, into operation. City Councils, individually and through their association, had considered the matter very carefully, and the association had drafted a scheme which would be submitted to the Local Government Board. That Board had by a Departmental Committee considered how best they could deal with the arrears of work at the Department, arrears which were increasing in consequcneo of fresh legislation. He did not think a mere increase of the staff of the Depart- ment was a satisfactory method of dealing with the matter, and urged that the proper way was to delegate powers to the county councils. The County Councils Association suggested the dele- gation of one hundred different powers, such as deciding the name of a parish or district council, the alteration of boundaries of parishes, the al- teration of the dates of fairs, etc. The time had Arrived when this step should be taken, and he suggested that the President of the Local Govern- ment Board should appoint a committee of the House of Commons to develop some scheme. An- other suggestion he made was that as there was a difficulty in some parte of the, couixtrv with re- gard to the non-county boroughs, which were jealous of any supervision by the County Ooun- cils. An experiment might be made in Wales, where no such difficulty existed -as the County Councils and the non-county boroughs were per- fectly agreed. In Wales there wa3 a unanimity of feeling on this matter which wan very gratify- ing, and one of the leaders of the movement was the Lord-lieutenant of Carnarvonshire, who was a strong Unionist. He urged the Local Govern- ment Board, therefore, to begin the delegation by giving additional powers to tho Welsh County Councils. Mr Orilfith Boscawcn complained that in a great ma!ty cases boMds of guardians had not given sufficient facilities to (ITrIli of England clergymen to hold services in workhouses. He moved a reduction of £ 150. Mr Talbot also complained that in some work- houses members of the Church of England did not get their own religious administration. Mr H. Roberts supported the rieira of Mr Lloyd George. Mr T. W. Russell pointed out that a Select Committee and a Departmental Committee had oonsidered the question raised by Mr Lloyd George. and the result was the sam<\ Mr Ghrtplin explained that lie had endeavoured to get religious services conducted in workhouses without resorting to legal extremities. Mr Weir was speaking at twelve o'clock when proeress was reported. The report of supply was agreed to after some discussion.
DEVELOPMENT OF THE CONWAY "BITER TRAFFIC. The Llandudno and Trcfriw Steamship Company, of which Aldorman Thomas Lewis, Ban- gor, L. chairman, the other directors being Mr Stephen Dunphy. Mr Shaw Thewti?. and Mr W. Ellis-Jonc$, of Liandudno, have erected a wooden pier running out into the -ea about a hundred yards, at West Uandudno. The object of the company is to give additional facilities for visitors and residents to enjoy the picturesque liver trip up the Conway to Trefriw. For this purpose they have purchased a steamer wliich is to be known as the "Queen of the Conway," certified by the Boa.rcr of Trade to carry 257 passengers. The steamer is a more commodious o,* t han tla.,o hitherto been provided for this trip, having f(?re and &ft saloong, from which the !ovefy I scentiy on either side of the river can be viwe when the weather is unfavourable to be on deck. The contractors for the pier wereMessrsGradweJl and Co., Barrow-in-Furness, Mr Webster, of London, being the engineer. Laot week, at the invitation of Mr and Mrs Lewis, a number of residents were in- vited to take a trip on the "Queen of the Conway." Amongst those present were:, M r and Mrs E. S. ;1Y;. ;;o:lM:r,wèc Le ;Ied MM:c8E wav. Mr and Mrs A. G. Pugh, Mr and Mra S. Dunphy, Mrs S. Renfrew, Mr and Mrs Hill, Mr and Mrs W. H. Heard, Mr and Miss Bartley, Mr and Mrs W.

Robinson, Misses Mathews and Standring, and Miss Elsie May Edge. The weather was of an ideal character for the occasion. The steamer left the pier at West Llan- dodno at about two o'clock, and proceeded past Deganwy and Conway up the river as far as Taty- cafn, where about three quarters of an liour was spent. During the sail light refreshments were aarved, the catering being in the capable hands of Mr Allan Sumner, of the Grosvenor Restaurant, Mostyn-street. Having returned to the estuary the boat steamed almost as far as Puffin Island, return- inir at about six o'clock, and the company were knded at the Pier Company's landing-stage in Llan- dudno Bay. Mr Elias Jones moved a vote of thanks to Mr and Mrs Lewis for the enjoyable afternoon they had all experienced. Hillnlrprise was that some keen busi- ness men of Llandudno had not conceived and carried out the idea of developing the CDnw?y River traffic before now instead of leaving it to Bangor gentle- m&n to give the visitors ..identR of TI..d.d.. the means of viewing the charming soenery they had LA the pleasure of pmeing through that day. The vote of th"ks was aetonded by Councillor William Bevan and Mr Caraher, and carried with acclamation. Mr Thomas Lewis, in acknowledging the vote of thanks, said that it occurred to him that the people of Llandudno would appreciate a trip direct from their town up that beautiful river. It gave him pleasure to be the, main instrument in forwarding the development of a wateringvplaoe like Llandudno (a I '4u*e) 7he general arrangements, which were admirable in every reopeot. were carried out under the superin- tendence of Mr George Griffiths, secretary and manager to the company.

The motion iiavirig Ixten agreed to, Mr Rouw went on to say that the town suffered considerably lowing to the want of late trains and cheap tickets to and from the chief towns and watering resorts. He proposed that the Council should at once take steps to bring the matter under the notice of the ,,hip?f superintendent of the district (Mr Dent) with ?: view to an improvement (hear, hear). Mr John Roberts suggested that an endeavour should be made to get an interview with Mr Dent. Mr T. H. Robtrts said he heard a railway official complaining the oiher day that a deputation which waited upon the railway authorities from Ruthin some time ago did not know their own mind (laughter). Ultimate- ly it was decided that representations should be made to the superintendent appealing to him to issue cheap tickets, and to authorise late trains to and from Ruthin during the months of June, July, and from Ruthin during the months of June, July, August, and September. — The Medical I Officer reported that the health of the town was satisfactory, only sixteen births and a similar num- ber of deaths occurring (Turing the last two months.

ST. ASAPH. Police Court.—At a special sitting of this oourt I on Tuesday, before Dr. Basterby and other magis- trates, John Rowland Dolban, a woodman, residing near Uandyrnog, was sent to prison for 28 days for having been drunk and disorderly at St. Asaph on the previous day.—Emma Jones, of Gemig-street, St. Asaph, was charged by Inspector Thomas (of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) with cruelty and neglect of two children. Mr James Lloyd appeared for the prosecution. Inspector Thomas said that on the 13th ult. he visited ) 13, lying in defendant's house, and saw a boy, age 13, lying in bed suffering from rheumatic fever. The boy looked very ill, and was not properly nourished. At the foot of the bed in an old cot, whioh was in an indescribable condition, he found a little baby, aged three months, in a filthy state. He also found a foeding bottle near the child, which was broken in half, and in a very dirty state. The defendant threw the 'baby about in her arms as if it were a football. An the family slept in the same bed. He (the inspector) went for Dr. Lloyd, who recom- mended that the children should be removed to the workhouse, which was done. Dr. H. Lloyd said he attended the boy, who was suffering from rheumatic fever. He had asked the defendant to keep the baby cleaner, whereupon she became very abusive, and said that he ought to call at other houses, and since then she had not been for any medicine for the boy, who was very much neglected. Two of her children had died previously, and one had been taken from her. Sergeant Pearson also gave corroborative evi- dence. The Bench stated that they found that the conduct of the defendant was due to the fondness for drink, and the best plan was to put her out of temtation for a time, when they hoped she would come back and be a better woman. She was soutenoed to four months' imprisonment with hard labour.
