Carmarthen Rural District Council
Carmarthen Rural District Council. MR NATHAN GRIFFITHS AND TREi.liCtl A meeting of the Carmarthen Rural District. Council was held at the Guildhall on Satur- day. Mr M. James Evans, J.P. (chairman of the Council) presided. The report of the Sanitary Housi lg and Systematic Inspection Committee showed that the Committee had considered the rt;tfeit-.tt-i made at the last meeting of the County Coun- cil to the effect that in the parish of Trelceh, fowls and pigs were kept in the bedrooms of the people. The Clerk (Mr Saer) had been directed to write to Mr Nathan Griffiths asking for pi r- ticulars. The following letter was now read; 21. Copper Works Road, Llaneiiy, Feb. 3rd. 19'5. Dear Sir,—In reply to yours I beg to sta+e that what I intended to convey was not that 1 knew of such oases but that I had been in- formed that such houses existed in the d-s- triot and knowing from personal experience (î the wretched conditions of some of the habi- tations of the people many years ago I ti-ic more readily gave strong credence. I am very pleased to learn that no such places exist at present. Will you kindly convey to your Committee my deep-regret at having repeated a statement made to me without having first verified its truthfulness. I remain, yo urs faithfully, NATHAN GRIFFITHS. Rev J. Herbert: It is to be hoped that he won't make such statements in the future. Mr Stephens said that he hoped the letter would receive the same publicity as the orig- inal statements. WHO GAVE THE 2s. 6d? Mr Stephens asked who had paid the 2s 6d which had been given as conduct money to Mi- Gilbert when he was subpoenaed in the recent County Court case. The Clerk said that the half-crown had been given by the plaintiff and not by the defendants—who were the Council. A CRITICAL PROBLEM. Mr J c'b. Sanitary Inspector, repcrted that in the parish of Abergwili. an owner had been served with notice to place troughs on his house. His neighbour would not allow him to go on the premises next door to put up the ladders. The Clerk said that the only way in which it could be done would be for the owner to hang a scaffold from his own roof. The Medical Officer (Dr Jones): Or stand on his head (laughter). A DANGEROUS BUILDING. A letter was read from Mr Harries. Croft. St. Clears, who called attention to the dan- gerous state of a, house in St. Clears belonging to Mr Smith. ■Mr J. J. Bowen said that he had been down there a few- days ago, and the house did not appear to be any nearer falling down than it had been previously. Mr LI. Morgan It is surely nearer. The Surveyor (Mr E. Morgan) said that the house ought to Ibe knocked down. The only question was whether they would be able to recover the expense from Mr Smith. Mr B. Salmon proposed that the Surveyor arrange with the roadman to demolish the house. The Surveyor: I should be very pleased to do that. Mr J. W. Lewis: I move that we leave it in the hands of the Surveyor. This was agreed to. COMFORTS FOR THE WELSH TROOPS. A letter was read from the Ladv Mayoress of Cardiff asking the Council to assist in the movement for providing comforts for the Welsh troops by means of a Flag Day on the 1st March. The Chairman said that they were already- I doing something in the matter in his district. Mr John Jones said that in his distric t tliev were moving also. Mr J. W. Lewis said that no doubt they were all doing their best. but they rfright do better than their best. He had received a letter from Mrs Llúyd George on t.he matter. Mr Stephens asked how anybody could do more than their best. Mr J. W. Lewis said that there was n higher degree than the superlative. A man might he doing his best by giving £1. but he might make a stretch and give 25s. They had done a good deal in his district, but he thought that the Council as a. Council should do something. Suppose each member contri- buted £1. It was decided that each member should do the best he could for the fund in his own dis- trict. FLOODING AT FERR ASIDE. Mr J. Jones moved that the Councl carry jut the work previously discussed for prevent- ing the flooding of the road under the G.W.R. near Tanlan, St. Ismael. Mr J. W. Lewis seconded the proposition, and hoped that it would be done as cheaply as possible. Mr Stephens: If you grant this, it will be another "glaring irregularity" (laughter). It was decided to authorise the carrying out of the work. LOCAL COUNCILLOR ENLISTED. Mr E. Morgan (Surveyor) asked whom he was to consult regarding Llanstephan work as the local District Councillor (Mr Richards) had enlisted. The Clerk He had better consult himself. It was decided to give the Surveyor full power. THE REPAIRS OF FOOTPATHS. A discussion arose over the repair to bridges on some footpaths in Llanwinio. The Clerk said that the Parish Councils had now power to repair footpaths. Mr J. W. Lewis said that in his parish (Tvlanddarog) they were repaired by the Parish Councils. AY bat was the legal position? The Clerk said that the Parish Council may repair the public footpaths in the parish but they are not obliged to do so. The District Council is not obliged to do the work except the pathway had previously been repairable by the old Highway Authority. It wo"uld appear from the statement made by the Sur- veyor that the Highway Authority had re- paired the road. Therefore the Parish Coun- cil had been relieved of its liability. It was decided to obtain prices for the work. LOCAL LEVY OBJECTED TO. A letter was read from the Narberth Rural District Council asking for a definite promise that the locality would give one-third of the cost of the proposed bridge at Cwmfeiin- mynaeh. Mr W. AYilliamss (Llanwinio) said that other bridges had been built without any such con- dition. The local people—whether in the Car- marthen or the Whitland District—did not see why they should do so. They were will- ing to give the haulage. Mr LI. Morgan asked how much one-third would come to. Mr W. Williams (LIanwinio) said that it would be about £ 100, but they had offered to do haulage valued at t56. Mr E. Morgan (Surveyor) said that the estimated cost was t325. Allowing for haul- age and land there would be about £ 50 to make up. Mr LI. Morgan pointed out that the land which had been given was in the parish of Llanwinio. He thought that that ought to go to the credit of Llanwinio and not go into the Common Fund between Llanboidy and Llanwinio. After further discussion it was decided to lot the former resolution stand—that the bridge be built on condition that. the locality contribute one-third of the cost. Mr AYilliams asked what would happen if the locality did not contribute the third? Mr LI. Morgan: In thateki-,e it may lot be done. THE PONTYBEREM BOUNDARY. Air Stephens proposed that they protest against the proposed addition of Pontybere.n to the Llanelly Union and ask the L.G P. to hold a public enquiry. This was seconded by several m m; simultaneously, and carried unanim uisly. THE AVAR AND CONSTRUCTIVE WORKS. A discussion tcok place over the need of a culvert at Felingelli, in the parish of Aber- (rii-ili-a matter which had been referred to by Mr Gad Protherce (Suoveyor) in a report read at the last meeting. The cost of the work- was estimated at ZE40. Rev J. Herbert said that he did not thini it was a time to dabble in bricks and mortar. He moved that the construction of the culvert be deferred until next year. but that any work of repair which was required should be done as soon as possible. Hie erection of a new culvert ought however to be deferred until next year. Mr AY. AYilliams (Abergwili) After the war is over. Rev J. Herbert said that he was of opinion that the con struct ion of JO new bridge or cul- vert should be taken in hand this year except there were urgent reason for it. He sugges- ted that they should adept a suspensory measure in regard to all such woriis. They were faced with the expenditure on the Cottage Homes, and the possibility that part of the Union would be added to Llanelly. Air W. AYiiliaims (Abergwili) thought that it would be time enough to begin this work ait or the war. There were so many calls for subscriptions upon them at present. Air Stephen- said that Mr Herbert proposed to defer the work for a year. Perhaps by that time he and many ethers would not be members (,f the Council, because there would be an election in the meantime (laughter). Rev J. Herbert: The elcctioh will be the year after next? Mr John AYilliams (Ab-rgwili) said that he was in complete sympathy with what Mr Her- bert said about expenditure being undertaken during the present national risis. It may be that there was not much traffic on this road, Mat it is the,-doty of the Council to keep it in fafe condition. He agreed that all new works ought to be deferred for the present. The Clerk asked what was the resolution. Did it apply to all culverts or only to this particular culvert? Mr Stephens: His proposition is that this be suspended. Mr AYilliams (Abergwili): With other bridges. The Clerk You had better pass a resolution first ;-s to this particular culvert and after- wards as to the ethers if you wish. Mr J. J. Bowen said that it would be more economical tj erect the culvert. They would spend tJ or £.j a year on repairs—the interest on £ 100. If it were necessary why defer it?. Air W. AYilliams It is not necessary at all. Air J. J. Bowen: If it is net necessary why should WF bind ourselves to do it next ye-ar? Mr J. AYilliams said that ob ut twelve years ago his horse was nearly drowned there when drawing a cart through the ford. Mr W. AYilliams said that if Air Wmiams's horse had really got drowned it was only onco in twelve years. Air Protheroe (Surveyor) said that the re- pairs could carried out at a very small cost. Air Stephens: If Mr AYilliams thinks it is needed why doesn't he move a direct negative Mr W, AYilliams %aid that lie would move that the culvert be not built at all. Rev J. HeriKM't: We must listen to the sur- veyor. He says that the place is dangerous. A bridge must be built there sooner or later. "hat I suggest is that it ought to be de- ferred. Mr W, AYilliams (Abergwili) sa'd that in order to bring the matter to a head he would move that a committee he appointed to visit the place. They would have to wait there three weeks to see a cart pass. .Air LL Morgan Will you give them board and lodging for the three weeks? (laughter). Rev J. Herbert said that they ought not to treat this as a laughing matter. A committee was appointed to visit the place and to report.
