Whitland Rural District Council
Whitland Rural District Council. The monthly meeting of the Whitland Rural District Council was held on Friday, Mr Levi Davies (chairman) presiding. GRAVEDIGGER AXD ROADMENDER. There was only one applicant for the post of road labourer for the lower part of Llan- boidy—-Mr James Evans, Soar, Whitland. He was appointed. The Surveyor (Mr Rees Davies) said that they could not have a better man. if they had a dozen applications. He was the grave- digger for Soar, and that would explain why his sheets were .sometimes blank. TENANCY AND SUB-TENANCY. A letter was read from the Clerk to the Carmarthenshire Countv Council stating that Mr Williams held the iJwyndrissi fields on a 35 years lease, dater from 28th September, 1913. The lease contained no reference to a right of use by the Whitland Rural District Council. At a previous meeting Mr Williams had threatened to give notice to the Whitland Rural District Council to terminate the ten- ancy of this field which is at present used as a refuse tip. Mr William Thomas said that Mr Williams was a tenant of the Small Holdings Com- mittee. If any of these tenants sublet, the lease was cancelled. A committee was appointed to interview Mr Williams with the object of arranging the matter. I SIFTING THE "STARRED" FROM THE "UNSTARRED. A circular was read from the Local Govern- dent Board asking the Council to do all they could to assist recruiting. They rrsked the Council to appoint a Committee who would act as a tribunal to de;.dc disputes whether men could be spared or not. The Committee need not consist of members of the Council. The Council should be careful to appoint men of impart'al and balanced judgment. Mr D. Davies proposed that the Committee be appointed from the members of the Coun- cil. The following gentlemen were appointed to act:—Chairman, Mr T. Davies. Mr Matthias, Mr W. Thomas and Mr D. Davies. RIGHTS RESPECTED AT CWM FELIX MYXACH. Mr E. Morgan, surveyor, Pendine, reported on the new bridge at Cwmfelin Mvnacli. There was still some work to he done there. Mr T. Davies said that therewas an ancient right of access to the river. Had it been protected. The Surveyor said that it had. Everything would be put right. The smith had asked that his right to take wheels down to the river should be left open, and a lady had asked that the path to her house should he left open. A committee was appointed to visit the place and to report what was required. THE TAILORS OF TOO LEY STREET. The Whitland Branch of the Xational Union of Railwaymen asked the District Council to take steps to .fix the prices of food stuffs in Whitland. Mr T. Davies said that the Council had nothing to do with it. The matter was one for the commercial department of the Board of Trade. This resolution reminded him of the three tailors of Tooley street who called themselves the men of England. Butter had fallen 3d a pound last week. because a quan- tity of Danish butter had been dumped here, the Danes not being able to do business with the Germans. The Government had fixed the price of cube s'ugar at 5d per lb. and grocers were not able to charge more although they had some in stock which cost them 6 £ d. Mr D. Davies soid that Is öd to Is 8d a vl'c pound was too much for a poor man to pay for butter. He moved that they send a reso- lution to the Board oi Trade on the subject. Mr Wm. Thomas seconded the proposal of Mr D. Davies. Mr Peter Howell said that if this came from a Union they had better leave it alone. They were there to represent the ratepayers and not any union. Mr W. Thomas said that the members of the Union were ratepayers. It was decided to take no action in the matter. SURVEYOR'S REPORT. The Surveyor reported as follows:- "Since the Hast meeting most of the con- tractors have been very active in respect of their contracts; this is proved by the fact that, 1.892* yards or tons of stone have been measured during the last month in the various parishes, and there are a few who have de- livered the stones but failed to get them ready for measuring owing to breaking operation lacking: on the other hand there are a few contractors who will not and most probably will not attempt to carry out their contracts. For Division No. 2. iiii Castledwyran, the contractor writes that he cannot get the stones broken as he intended. The amount ordered was for 100 yards from Vaynor or Penllyn quarries. In this case 1 would ad- vise ordering say 50 tons of limestones from Llandebie. the stones to be broken so as to go through a two-inch guage. Cilmaenlllwyd Parish My estimate for field stones in this parish was for 120 yards, mostly supplied from farmers, but only 73 yards have been delivered, leaving a deficiency of 47 yards. Then again in my estimate a sum of £ 15 is provided for limestones in respect of las* year's deficiency. 1 now suggest the addition of ClO for deficiency in field stones, and thus malking £ 25 availale for limestone for the lower part of the parish. This scheme will give every satisfaction to the ratpayers of the parish. Egilwysfairacherig Parish In Division 2 of this parish where 155 yards had been ordered for Fenian rd. only about 15 loads hare as yet been delivered, and there is very little pros- pect of the remainder being delivered at least not for some time. Llanboidv Parish There are three con- tractors in this pa.rish who are very much behind in their contracts. In Division 31. where 130 yards was ordered, less than half has been delivered. The same remarks are applicable to Division 32 where 120 yard-, were ordered, but the worst case of all is Divi- sion 34 where 180 yards were ordered and only a lew delivered- Marros again is on the same footing. 130 yards were ordered and half or less ha.s been delivered. This parish for simi- lar reasons has been neglected for the last two or three years. The ratepayers pay their rates and they do not get their fair value in return. To prevent repetition of this neglect in the future I would advise the Council to be very careful in the selection of contractors a it is not always a safe policy to accept the cheapest tenders. This is my experience after 40 yeare service. Llanfallteg: At and near the Railway station there is rather a deep ditch on the south side of the road which should be filled up for a distance of about 100 feet in order to widen the road which considering the large j i- I I number of milk carts is too narrow. Perhaps the District Councillor will kindly meet me there when a more detailed report can be made and submitted to you. Road Scrapings: At Whitland there is a considerable quantity of road scrapings which at present is carted away to the scavenging field at a considerable cost. I respectfully suggest to you that the scrapings should be wheeled away by the roadmen into a depot where is can be utilised as binders when the steam roller is working in the district, thus i saving carting earth from other places, and also doing away with the expense of cart work as the roadmen will be a bile to take it away to a suitable spot. I mention this for eoono- mical reasons. Road Hedges: Several persons owing to the scarcity of labour or some other reason have failed to cut (i;, to complete cutting their road hedges. Now in order to save the expense of serving official notices, it is to be hoped that one and all will respond to my appeal to cut withuut delay thereby stvuirng better roads." I t:>
1Ferryside Motor Ferry
————— 1 Ferryside Motor Ferry. ) OWNER- PROSECUTED BY BOARD OF TRADE. At the Carmarthen County Petty Sessioiis on Saturday before the Mayor (Mr J. Lewis) and Mr J. Llovd Thomas (Ferryside). Mr Galsworthy. Board of Trade Inspector for the district, charged Mr James Beckett, the owner of the motor hOlat "Ida," with a breach of the Merchant Shipping Regulations. Mr Walilis-Jones appeared on behalf of the prosecutor, and MR H. Brunei White for the defence. In his opening statement. Mr Wallis-Jenes explaiined that the defendant was charged with carrying more passengers than twelve without having had a certificate from the Board of Trade, and also with carrying pas- sengers without having had a survey. 23 passengers were carried, and the defendant was liable to a fine of tlO per passenger— £ 230 in all. P.C. D. J. Daivies sajd: On the 12th August 1 was on the beach at Ferryside. I saw the "Ida" leave the beach at 5.30 p.m. carrying 22 passengers. I counted them. I saw it coming hade It contaned 7 men and 12 women, 2 girls (between 10 and 12) and 2 young children. There was also a. crew of three men. Beckett was acting as master. After the others had left, I asked Beckett the number of passengers he had brought over. He replied "I did not count them" I said "Don't you consider it your business to count them." He replied "People are rushing the Wat; they don t give me a. chance." 1 told him he had carried 23 passengers. Beckett 7 replied "In my opinion the hoat is perfectly safe and could be taken to sea anywhere." I said "You know you are only allowed to carry twelve." He replied "I did not know." 1 asked him "Have you not been officially warned?" He replied "That was about the Jogo—which is another boat." He added "I did not know it affected the Ida." I asked hiini if the Ida was licensed- He replied "No; but it is .-i larger boat." 1 said "I am going to report you. He remarked "You might have made up your mind to report me. But if you thought the boat was overcrowded I would have thought much more of you if 1 had told you and then reported me if I re- peated it. I did not know you had any authority over the Towy. Have any of the people been complaining to you It is no gatin to me to have the boat overcrowded. I have put an extra man on. and it would be quite as easy to tow one of the sailing boats across." I replied "There is too strong a current to tow a sailing boat across. It was with difficulty vou were able to take the motor boat across. 1 was expecting the boat to swamp any moment." I asked him the name of the proprietor. He said "It is only my brother Joseph Beckett, of Hampstead, and myself. He said that it was not a compa.ny. Witness added that there was a high strong sea. SeveraJ of Mr Alfred Stephens's em- ployees and also several of his children were in the boat. Cross-examined by Mr White The witness said that he had often crossed in the sailing boats. The service is much bettr now than it was in the time of the sailing boats. He was aware that there was often a rush for the boat. Mr White asked if the official forec-ast hung up on the life-boat house was not "Claim, smooth sea. blue sky." Witness could not say yes or no to this question. The Bench fined the defendant L2 6s.
Carmarthen Board of Guardians
Carmarthen Board of Guardians. The fortnightly meeting of the Carmarthen Board'of Guardians was held at the Guildhall on Saturday. Mr J. J. Bowen presided. The Master in his report stated: "Divine Service was conducted in the House on Sun- day, 24th October, by the Rev E. Ungoed Thomas. Tabernacle Baptist Church, and on Sunday, 31st October, by the Rev D. Roberts, Elim Cong. Church. The number of inmates in the House on the last day of the week was (i4- against 56 for the corresponding period last year. The number of casual paupers re- lieved during the fortnight was 26 against 44 for the same period last year. A parcel of clothing was given by Mr W. J. Thomas, of John street. RECRUITING TRIBUNAL. The following gentlemen were appointed a local tribunal to decide disputes as to whether I certain men should be exempted from military service or not:—Mr John Lewis (Llangen- deirne), Mr John Jones (Plas), Rev J. Her- bert. Mr T. Davics (Abernant), Mr John Jones (Laiigharne). and Mr LI. Morgan. NURSING ASSOCIATION. On the motion of the Rev A. Fuller Mills, it was decided to apply to the local nursing < association with the object of making some arrangements for the attendance on maternity 1 cases at the Workhouse. SUPERANNUATION. j Mr J. D. Evans, relieving officer, in apply- ing for his superannuation gave some interest- itig statistics of relief during his forty years service. 1% iieii he was appointed in 1875, the j number of outdoor paupers was 781 and the average. amount granted to each was 2s Oid; in 1885 the number was 590, and the average j 2s 0^D in 1895 the number was 396 and the average 2s L.Jd. In 1905 the figures were 299 j and 2s 6id, and now they are 181 and 2s 10id. I The Chairman said that the relief had in- creased at the rate of 4d a head since the Old I Age Pensions had come in. It was decided to grant Mr Evans the superannuation to which he is entitled. APPOINTMENT OF RELIEVING OFFICER 'Hiere were two applications for the post of relieving officer—Mr W. Rupert Evans. son and deputy of the former relieving officer, and Mr Evan Davies, Blaenwaun, Talley, Lland'iilo. The latter is 49 years of age, and the former enclosed a certificate showing that he is ineligible for military service on account of his short s'glit. Mr Rupert Evans was unanimously elected. Rev A. F. Mills said that they would all have been glad if Mr J. D. Evans had seen his wav to retain office until the end of the war. I'hat he believed was also the wish of Mr Wnlirams, the L.G.B. Inspector. UNCLE TO BE PROSECUTED. The Clerk (Mr J. Saer) made a statement in regard to a boy named Hopkin. who had spent some time at the Cottage Home. The Guardians had assumed parental control over the boy. -It had been decided some time ago to put him on a ship but afterwards it had been agreed to place him in service at Hhyd- argauru. He promised to remain there a.nd to be a good boy but he had now left and was with his uncle on the Quay. There seemed to be no doubt that it was the influence of the uncle which induced the boy to leave the service. Rev J. Herbert said that the boy was well looked alter and had no reason to leave. They ought to exercise all the power they had. The Clerk: You can prosecute anyone who Harbours n«m. Mr LI1. Morgan pioposed that they prose- cute the uncle for harbouring the boy. Rev A. F. Mills suggested that the Chair- man and the Clerk should see the bov that afternoon and ascertain his resksons for his leaving. The Ciia-irman: We do not propose to pro- secute the boy. We propose to prosecute t'he uncle.. The Clerk said that the Foster Mother had gone to see the uncle. She had not seen him but had seen the aunt. Nit- J. P. Lewis: What was the conversation The Clerk I don't know that I can detail it aU. It was not very complimentary. Mr Stephens said that they had been told that the boy was well looked after. If they held such an enquiry as suggested it would only result in an attempt to blacken the f a r M e R' s CL I a r a C t ER. It was decided by 11 votes to 5 to prosecute the uncle and to return the boy to the service which he had kit.
