I BARRY DISTRICT COUNCIL. GAS AND WATER COMMITTEE. The monthly meeting of the Gas and Water Committee of the Barry District Council was held on Monday afternoon last, when the members present were Mr J. A. Manaton (chairman), Mr J. Arthur Hughes, Mr W. Paterson, Mr James Jones, and Mr J. Milward. Mr F. M. Harris (the gas engineer and manager) reported that during the past month 23 gas services were laid, 8 ordinary, and 46 prepayment gas meters, 15 ordinary and 77 prepayment gas cookers fixed, and 27 houses fitted out. The report of the Water Engineer (Mr E. W. Waite) showed that 18,474,800 gallons of water were pumped into the reservoirs last month, a daily average of 19! gallons per head of the population, an increase of 14,811 gallons compared with the corresponding month of last year. The rainfall during the month was 2-78 inches. The tender of Mr D. Paulett, Cadoxton, at £.10, was accepted for the grass on the Council's land at Biglis. A report was presented of the holidays given to workmen in other towns, and it was considered that at Barry the workmen were dealt with more liberally than elsewhere. The Committee decided to continue the gas main to the houses on the right-hand side of the railway at Dinas Powis. It was resolved to let plots of land at the siding at 28 per week to freestone masons, the holdings to be subject to a month's notice on either side. A charge of 8d per ton was fixed for hay and corn brought to the Council's siding. A sub-committee, consisting of the Chairman, Mr Paterson, and Mr Milward, were appointed to report on the tenders for gas coal. The tender of Mr George Winstanley, at d68,500, was accepted for erecting the incline system of retorts of the Gas-works.
