I REFRESH MEN IS AT WENTWOOD I A Capital Account for Future Generations. At the monthly meeting of the Newport County Council to-day Mr Wilkinson enquired what the sum of;68 3s, recommended by the Finance Com- mittee to be paid to Messrs Dowdal4 was intended to include.-The Town Clerk said it was a charge for carriages and refreshments on two visits of the committee to Wentwood.-Mr Wilkinson And champagne and cigars ?-The Town Clerk No. -Mr Wilkinson How much of the j68 3s does Messrs Dowdall get ?—The Town Clerk: They get the whole of it.-Alderman Lyne They do nob allow any discount. If you will bender for light refreshments we will get you the contract. (Laugbter.)-Alderman Moses was surprised at gentlemen asking ridiculous questions. The committee spent the best portion of two days at Wentwood in the service of the ratepayers, and he did nob believe the ratepayers grudged suitable refreshment.—Mr Wilkinson declined to have his conduct stigmatised as ridiculous.—Mr Brown said the cost was only JB4 4s for each visit, and thought the charge was very reasonable when drivers, horse hire, and refreshments were both understood.—Mr Lisoombe thought Mr Wilkinson should have confidence in the committee, and twitted that gentleman with persistently de. clining to go to Wentwood himself and make a personal examination. Alderman Lyne: I believe he is going out with me some day, and I shall hava to pay the expenses. r hope the visit will be under some more fortunate star- (laughter)—and that he will get rid of that beam of his. (Renewed laughter.)-Mr Gower com- plained of Mr Wilkinson's reference to the bill did be insinuate that the Corporation offioials or someone else got portion of it ?--Mr Wilkinson I am not a grocer. ("Oh!" and laughter.)- Alderman Lyne But he me a grosser accusa- tion. (Laughter.)—Mr Wilkinson I made no insinuation I asked for an explpnatiod. -Alder- man Parnall pointed out that the bill would be charged to the capital account and would be paid by the next generation. -Alderman Lyne: I hope the hon. member will now think it is a capital account. (Laughter.)
