I Cardiff fwif Sheets Committee of the th^nrL?,^ 10n Was held morning, unde the renort n ^olme^or Oeorge David, when condition r>f°fv. r Hallett upon the the course f u- street. was presented. In there w ° 13 remar^s Mr Hallett st ated that made VM D° doU^)*' t*le committee could be tren»u; ^^iceable and useful without °< «» jfr TJ 'lere were many matters in conai/4 arf.Ur 8 report which required careful to exte^ vT • k0keve<* t^xat tbey could afford wderabl scaven?inS operations very con- y- He quite agreed with the conclusions ea at re road construction and repair. He not satisfied with the statement of the sUperintendent of the health department. He eIieved it contained figures which could not be Instantiated. He recommended (1) that Health Committee be desired to nce the use of the horse-sweeping machines the roads to a, minimum; (2) that hec ea"h Committee be recommended to employ a sufficiently large staff of men and horses in we weather to thoroughly cope with the work; (3) the attention of the same committee be called to the wettability of paying more attention to the useand faJe of road mud and dust; (4) that more refuse ooxes—more ornamental than the present ones— be added in convenient places in every important street, and one man should be employed in the ttytime collecting the waste paper, &c., that was found in the gutterways and place it in the boxes; and (5) all gully traps in dry weather to be attended to regularly for the purpose of prevent rag the streets being flooded upon a heavy down- of rain, especially a thunderstorm. Mr Hallett continued that more attention should be paid to the cleansing and sanding of the roads, especially where they were laid with ashphalte and wood.—Councillor F. J. Veall said that he believed one of the reasons for the great excess of sticky" mud in the streets was the large amount of limestone gravel use with the metalling in making the roads. He did not think that limestone clipping or gravel were used with granite in any other place, and he proposed that inquiries should be made as to the practise in various boroughs and counties in maadamising roads. Councillor Crossman seconded the proposition, which was carried. Discussion on Mr Hallett's report was deferred until the next meeting, and Mr Woosey Of the scavenging department, was asked to far- bish a more detailed report in the meantime.
