BARRYITPUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE
BARRYITPUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE. COLOOT FOOTPATH: A HARD- SHIP. Mr. ,C. B. Griffiths, J.P., occupied the chair at a meeting of Barry Public Works (Committee on Tuesday last. There were present Dr. P. J. O'Don- nell, J.P., Messrs. L. P, Griffiths, Howell Williams, S. R. Jones.. and J. Marshall. Plans submitted by Mr. W. iC. Hel- lier of proposed greenhouse at n, The Parade; by Mr. T. R. Fishes,, for a washhouse at 7, Charles-place-; and alterations and additions to Walters Farm, for the Wenvoe Castle Estate, were approved. The question of tar-spraying. Cold- brook-road. was. considered, and; was left to the Surveyor (Mr. J. C. Pardoe). The Surveyor enquired whether it was advisable to increase the price- of stone taken from the Council's Quarry. There was a deSoiency, owing to; in- creased wages aad war bonus,, of £ 33 5s. 8d. The deficiency could. be-aaet by increasing: the price from 3/- to.4/- per ton, and gravel from 4/- to 5/- per ton. It would have become cheaper but for the increase of wages. The Chairman: Something should be done with the Refuse Destructor; the clinker could I be ground and sold as manure. A\ market could alsa, be found for the old Itins at the destructor. Mr. Howell: Williams: Yes; look at the Germans. It was agreed: to take no action in either case. Mr. W. Williams, Colcot, wrote ask- ing that a certain pathway at thol,Cbll- COl, be closed. Since the Military Camp had been established, the path- way leading from Colcot througlit the Buttrills Field had been closed. Peopfo went by the path, and when stoppecli by the sentry would not go back; but went through; his field instead;, and, caused heavy damage to his crops. On the proposition of Mr. S. R. Jones, it was decided to place a notice at the spot explaining the position. and thus putting the responsibility on* the military authorities. Permission was granted for an over- head telegraph line in Park-rooot.

Haywa.rd, however, showed no distress at tthe terrific blows he- received in the opening rouaids, and, (appeared to be holding himseM back. This was veri- fied in the tsixth round", when he sent the Sergeant clean off his feet- with a. right swing. The contest wa, through- out exciting, and tho winner's margin of rpoints must have been exceedingly smadl.
