LOOKING AFTER THE HEALTH OF BARRY AND CADOXTON. A meeting of the Health Committee of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board was held on Friday evening at the Office of the Board, Vere- Btreet, Cadoxton. There were present Dr. O'Donnell (chairman), Mr. W. Thomas (Barry), Mr. W. Paterson, Mr. Thomas (Hayes), Mr. J. A. Hughes (clerk to the Board), Dr. Neale (medical officer of health), Mr. Pardoe (surveyor), and Mr. Leyshon (inspector of nuisances). 1 CHOLERA PRECAUTIONS. Dr. Neale referred to several letters he had re- specting the engaging of a tug for quarantine purposes in the event of an outbreak of cholera. Upon the motion of Mr. Ihomas (Barry) it was decided to engage the tug Sarah Ann Jane (Messrs. Morgan and Brown) at £ 18 per week, if required, and in the event of the tug not being wanted the Local Board to pay a sum of £ 5 to the owners and that the Clerk draw up the necessary agree- ment. Mr. Thomas (Hayes) thought that the Board had adopted a very wise course in providing against any possible outbreak of cholera. He thought the £ 5 would be well spent if the tug was not re- quired. It was decided to recommend the Local Board to adopt the motion of Mr. W. Thomas. THE FLUSHING QUESTION. The Inspector of Nuisance reported that he had made house to house inspection in 37 streets. He had eerved 1,018 notices for flushing apparatus, of which number 59 had been complied with. A question arose as to whether the Board should compel owners of empty houses to at once put in flushing cisterns. Mr. Thomas (Barry) said the children of the neighbourhood would break them all to pieces if cisterns were placed in unoccupied houses. The Chairman considered it was the duty of the police to protect property. After some consideration it was decided that owners of unoccupied property be allowed to put the flushing cisterns into the houses when occupied, provided they gave a written undertaking to the Clerk to that effect. The Inspector of Nuisances further reported that 19 other notices had been seived to abate nuisances. He had inspected the dairies, milk shops, and other establishments where food was sold, and found them in a satisfactory condition. Fifty-nine visits had been made to infected houses, while 151 vessels had been inspected, 69 which came from foreign ports. In, all cases where nuisances existed notices had been served. It was decided to take proceedings against those persons who had not complied with the notice to abate nuisances. SEAMEN'S BOARDING- HOUSES. A letter was read from the Board of Trade with regard to the Provisional Order in Council under the Merchant Shipping Act asked for by the Local Board, and stating that it would be carried o»t in due course. The Clerk stated that the Local Board asked that no one be allowed to keep a seaman's boarding house except registered by the Board. SANITARY MATTEKS. The Surveyor submitted an estimate by which it appears that the cost of erecting six urinals will be about £455. The Clerk was instructed to write to the Local Government Board respecting the same. The Surveyor also submitted various accounts which had been presented for payment, and after they had been examined the meeting was con- cluded.
