Whitland Rural District Council
Whitland Rural District Council. The Whitland Rural District Council held their monthly meeting at the Grcsvenor Hotel Whitland, on Friday the 7th inst. There were present Mr Levi Davies (chairman). Mr James Davies (vice-chairman), Mr Thomas James. Ciffig Mr J. L. Williams, Egremont: Mr T. L. Phillips, Eglwyscymyn; Mr James Howe iis, Henllan-Amgoed .Mr Hý. Phillips. Llanfallteg East; Mr D.

Llangan East; lAlr W. L. Matthias. Pendine; the Clerk (Mr Hy. Lewis) the Medical Officer of Health (Dr W, D. Owen): the Surveyor (Mr Rees Davies); and the Sanitary Inspector (Mr Dan Jenkins). FINANCE. The Finance Committee met at 12 o'clock. The Surveyor presented bills due to various people. which were passed for pavment. VERY GOOD NEW S'. The Clerk informed the Council that owing to the Surveyor's reduced estimates, a rate of 9d in the £ was sufficient to meet ail expenses. Last year it was lid in the £-a reduction of 2d in the t. Mr Thomas Da.vies: Verv good news. TEAM WORK. The question of increasing the present scale >f payment for team work was discussed at some length. with the result that the matter was left in the hands of the Surveyor. Mr T. L. Phillips in accordance with notice of motion given at the last meeting, moved "That they should look out for another and more suitable room to hold their monthly meet- ings as he considered that the present place was too near the garage' where motor cars were at times malting such nosie that they could1 not hear each other." Mr James Davies, Llanboidy, seconded the proposal. Mr Thomas Davies moved "that they do not t move in the matter," and Mr W. Thomas, Llangan. seconded. tJlr John Owen. Llanboidy. said the room was, big enough, but he thought the room could be arranged much better by some slight altera- tions about the arrangements of the tables, etc 11 The mater was left in the hands of Messrs W. Thomas and P. W. Watkins to arrange with the proprietor (Mr A. Howell). Mr Peter Howells Very good, and get that billiard table put out of sight. I cannot bear the sigltt of it (laughter). REPORTS. The report of the Medical Officer of Health (Dr W. D. Owen) was read and approved. The Surveyor in his 39th annual report on the highways for the year ending 31st March, y 1 1916. said: "The total cost amounted to £ 2,235 lis 2d expended under the following headings: Materials. £ 1.203 8s 3d; team, JE62 17s 3d; manual labour. £ 969 cs 8d; total. t2,235 lis 2d. while the estimates was for £270i 17s. There are nearly 180 miles of roads of various description, incirculated in an area of about 4,800 acres. On the whole the up-keep of the roads has been fairly main- tained and many of the roads have been greatly improved. ,The winter weather and heavy traffic caused considerable damage in many parts of the district. Castledwyran Parish The lower main road is in good state of repairs; but owi ng to the failure of the contractor to carry out his con- tract for Division No. 2 the upper main and Ffynonbrodyr road are full of faulty spots; however I have provided an extra quantity of road metalling for the ensuing year. It is in- tended to widen the east side of the road from near the .public pump at Clynderwen up to the first tolegra.ph pcrst, a distance of about 80 yards and utilise the rubbish for widening the other side; this would give a nice appearance to tlie road. At the spot where the surface water crosses the highways it will greatly im- prove the smoothness for motor and other traffic if the space is made say five feet wider. This work can be carried out by the roadmen and will not entail much extra expens?. Cilmaenllwyd Parish There are 15i miles or roads in this parish. All the leading roads are in good state of repairs, while the hyre roads are in an improved state. At Efaelwen the traction caused some damage to the gutter opposite Barnaby House for a considerable dis- tance. I recommend to divert the water across the road to the other side. Other gutters have suffered the same fate and new six inch pipe guters are required in several places, such as Weraddu, Lantaf, Cwmiles and other roads. Ciffic Parish: There are only four miles of roads in this parish, viz.. the Old Coach road, Church road, and Cafancoch road. Of these Oafancoch is the best and strongest road. while the others are in a better condition than formerly. The extra. work required will be the lengthening of the present gutter near Cafan- coach and renewing the gutter which was broken near Nantyreglwys by heavy traction. Eglwysfair Parish: This is quite a large parish with 14 miles of road, tlie majority of which are in a fair state of repairs. One of the contractors for some reason failed to com- plete his contract, but I have provided in my estimate for an extra quantity in order to make up the xleficiency. Nothing but the ord- inary work will be required here for the ensu- ing year. „ Egremont Parish: Nearly all the roads in this parish are well kept and much improved during the last few years, but there is still room for improvement. Eglwyscummin Parish This is a parish with five "mites of roads, and over the main road road from Red Roses to Cross roads and Ebenezer Chapel there is often some heavy traction and other traffic and with a thin crusted surface cannot fail to suffer consider- able damage. However I am glad to report favourably on its present state. The other roads are faM-lv good and strong. Hen 1 Ian Parish The main and chief roads in this parish are good, the other roads can only be classed as second and third rate. Much damage is being caused to some roads by heavy timber traffic and especially in wet weather. Only the ordinary work will be required here for the ensuing year. Llanfallteg Parish Nearly all the roads in ( this parish are in a hi'gh state of repairs, espe- cially the main road. The usual work was carried out properly and only the ordinary ( work will be required for the ensuing year. Llandyssiiio Parish There are sixteen miJes or roads in this parish, the main road from Clynderwen to Yetybwlchau is the most im- portant one with a considerable and varied kind of traffic there are many parts of this roads in excellent repairs while other parts are; although strong. with a rather uneven surface, but a great deal of improvement has been done and more it still contemplated so as to bring the surface as even a.s practicable. It is intended to pay special attention to Glandy road bv digging and blasting up the large boulder stones at the sides of the road and breaking them up for road metalling, but it will be some time before it is completed. The Ponthowell road must have a good share of attention in the near future by similar pro- cess. Rhydwilym. Llwyndwr. and Tyooch roads require better and more attention al- though much improvements have been recent- Iv carried out on same; Clynderwen and Ddyffrynconnin roads are in a fair state of repairs. Featherbed and RJidywen roads are improving. Lilanglydwen Parish: In this parish we have 10 m.ill of roads which varies in length and conditions, but all in an improved state of repairs. The chief roads are in a remarkably good state. Llanboidy Parish: This is the largest parish in the whole district with sixty miles of roads and with few exceptions are in a fair state of repairs. Owing to heavy traffic and bad weather the road from Pontyfenny to Whit- land was badly cut up. however 'the defects have been made good. The road from New Inn towards Llanboidy also suffered. The mad from Login and Llanglydwen towards Llanboidy and other places show signs of be- ing greatly improved. Better and more attention is to be given to Tiwer and Llwyn- j llwyd roads; similar remarks are applicable to the Parsonage, Nantyreglwys and Sarngocli roads. The repairs carried out at Nantyr- allwyn Bridge and walls has given general satisfaction. The footbridge at and near Ddol Farm is in a decayed state and will require immediate attention; the cost must come out of the "Contingencies Fund" with this ex- ception nothing but ordinary routine work will be carried out for the ensuing year. Llangan Parish: This is another fairly large parish, having 27 miles of roads. The roads situated in the lower portion are subject to heavy and varied traffic. The hauling of heavy timber has already done a considerable damage to the road leading from Henllan to- wards Cwmfelyn and Whitland. Most of the leading joads are in good and strong repair. Llanlliwe road is to rereive better attention than usual in course of the summer months, a\o Fioswvnnai and Piiit-gwyre roads. M arrcs Parish: This is the smallest parish in the whole ditrict, with onlv one straig road of 3! miles in length, most of which is in good repairs. Near Amroth the su: fare of the road is now being digg d up in order to have a better and more even metallin, when com- pleted it will be a well deserved improvement For several years tlr's road has suffered for want of stones caused by contractors not carry ing out their contracts. Pendine Parish Most of the roads in this parish are strong, although with rough .sur- face in most places. The widening of tlie road near Great House has greatly improved its appearance and the public axe highly satisfied with the way the work was carried out. The building of the new sea wall and the widening of the road at Pendine has added greatly to the safety and appearance of the road at this place. Road Hedges: I have reasons to fell satis- fied with the way the top of road hedges have been cut during the year. With few excep- tions nearly all hedges have been cut down and also the over-hinging brances. There is no- thing better for the up-keep of roads than to allow the wind and sun as much as possible on them. and this is impossible with high hedges and shady trees. Quarries: The road labourers have already started to clean and dig stones at Gefneirch and Fronscawen quarries in order to secure materials for early delivery. The County Bridges: The County Council have now consented to grant the yearly sum of £ 42 10s towards the co-4 of maintaining the approaches of the bridges withing the area of this district. Formerly they only granted the sum of £ 25 a year. The actual length of approaches of the bridges would be about li miles, but the Llan- dre. Rhydowen. Cwmmiles. Login and Llwyn- dwr bridges having been built since 1836 the maintenance of their approaches are charge- able on /the District Council. This reduces the Length by 700 yards, and leaving 1,600 ya-ixls for the county to maintain, and for which the W hit land Council applied for a grant of £ 45 towards the up-keep of same as against £ 25. The County Council lias now agreed to grant £ 42 10s a year as from the 29th Septembre. 1915—an advance of £ 17 10s per annum. There is nothing further of general public interest to mention, and in conclusion I beg to thank you one a.nd all for the ki'ndness which I have received from you and the public during my term of office, and also to mv son acting as my deputy."
The Question of Health

Carmarthenshire Standing Joint Committee
Carmarthenshire Standing Joint Committee A quarterly meeting of the Carmarthen- shire Standing Joint Oommittee was held at the County Offices. Carmarthen, on Tuesday. M- F. Dudley Williams-Drummond presided. There were present, Lieut-Genenal Sir James Hilis-John^, V.C., G.C.B., Lord Dynevor, L Messrs D. Evans1, Manordaf. F. R. Nevill, J. Roberts. Thomas Jones, Llanelly; W. J. Wi iliams. Brynamman D. Davies, Rhj^blid; A. E. DuBuisson. Glynhir Mervyn Peel, Dan- yr a Ut C. E. Morris, Carntevrthen; J. LI. Thomas. Ferryside: Colonel Lloyd. Pare Henry; Col. Gwynne Hughes. Glancothi; [Messrs Jones. Penrhonw together with the Clerk (Mr J. W. Nicholas); Chief Constable (Mr W. P iefcon Pliilipps). the Suiveyors (Mr R. W. Jones and Mr G. Henry) and the Gcuntv Accountant (Mr P. Piefte). THE LATE SIR STAFFORD HOWARD. The Chairman referred to the lamentable death of Sir Stafford Howard, who, he said, was an active county man. They all knew, what Sir Stafford Howard did to the County of Carmarthen. They auu appreciated in the few years that he was anmong them, how much he did and how all his ideals were for the bene fit of the people. He had already done much in that direction, particularly in Llanelly, and to the inhabitants of which their sympathies especially went out. Not only was "Sir Staff- ord one of his oldest friends, but one of the most honest and sincere friends one could possiblv have. He moved a vote of deep sympathy and condolence with Lady Howard and family. The vote was carried in silence, all present upstanding. EJECTION OF CHAIRMAN. Mr Joseph Roberts moved that Mr Thomas Jones, Llanelly. be chairman for the ensuing vear. iMr W. J. Will iams seconded, and the motion unanimously carried. :lr Thomas Jones then took the chair and proposed a vote of thanks to Mr Drummond, the retiring chairman. Mr D. Evans second- ed. the vote was agreed to. PENALTIES FOR DRUNKENNESS. The Chairman referred to a report by the Chipl Constable that a constable was fined 5s for being under the influence of dring in pub- lie on December 23rd. At Llanelly, he said, the magistrates fined a man guilty of drunk- eiiiic-s not less 7s 6d and 9s. He did not know whether the magistrates at Llanelly were* more severe that the Chief Constable, and he would like to know if 5s was considered sufficient as a penalty. The Chief Constable said there was a dis- | tiiKtion in the two cases. In the case of a man under the influence of drink, the magis- trates could not fine him anything. The constable referred to was not drunk. It was a case af a man who .had intended to resign, and had in fact sent in notice. He was off duty and in plain clothes, and showed signs of drink, and under those circumstances he was J let off with a be of 6B.
