In a report, presented by Dr. Lloyd Roberts, medical officer of health to the St. Asaph Raral Sanitary Authority. he states that two parishes in his district, LIanfairtalhaiarn and Dyserth, draw their water supply from streams pol- luted by the drainage of the villages, that at Meliden there is a dip well, which is exposed to risks of pollution by sewage, and which is said to have originated a serious out- break of typhoid fever, and that in other .villages the water is both polluted and inadequate. The members of the St. Asaph Young Men's Reading Society have presented the Rev. W.

W. Morgan, B.A., onj his leaving St. Asaph, by the members of the Young Men's Reading Society and other friends, in acknowledg- ment of his valuable services as librarian of that institu- tion, May, 1878." The President of the Society, the Rev. W. Morton, made the presentation. At the last meeting of the St. Asaph Board of Guar- dians Mr. P. Wynne Yorke made some much needed re- marks upon the subject of the comparative expenditure in Welsh Unions. He said that in the four best managed unions the in-door paupers bore a, proportion of seventeen to eighty-three out-door paupers, whereas the worst man- aged 'unions had only a proportion 2*8 in-door paupers against 97'2 of out-door paupers. In the four best man- aged unions—Forden, Hawarden, Ruthin, and Wrexham, the cost of indoor maintenance was only Is. 6id. "per head, whereas in the worst managed unions 01 Anglesey, Dolgelley, Holyhead, and Pwllheli it was 3s. lltd. There was no doubt that the prevalence of hereditary pauperism in Wales, is; as Mr. Yorke described it, a "blot upon the fair fame" of the country, and that the extremely lax and indiscriminate mode of administering x relief which still prevails in many Welsh Union tends to perpetuate an evil of the most serious magnitude. At a recent meeting of 'the Nantwich Board of Guar- dians it was proposed by Mr. E. D. Broughton, the late Chairman of the Board, that the meetings of the Board be held at Crewe and Nantwich alternately, instead of being always held at Nantwich. It was stated that the London and North-Western Railway Company which has its headquarters at Crewe, paid just one-third of theentire amount collected in rates. Mr. Wilbraham Tollemache moved a direct negative to the proposition, on the ground that Nantwich was the more centrally situated, and con- venient place. "Nantwich is not played-out yet' said Mr Tollemache in concluding his speech. She may suffer just now when trade is very bad, in comparison with her rich and more prosperous neighbour, but Nantwich is not played out, and were she played out I for one would not put my heel upon Nantwich and endeavour to stamp out any sign of life that might be in her." At the close of the discussion, Mr. Broughton's motion was defeated by thirty-eight to twenty-four votes. A proposal has been made to form a new Union in order that Crewe may have its own Woikhouse and Board of Guardians. An inquest was held at Wellington, on Saturday mon> ing May 18th, before Mr. R. C. Clarke, deputy-coroner, to nquire into the cause of the death of Richard Hilton, Excise officer, of Horsehay.—Mr. John Stones, platform inspector at Wellington, said that the previous evening the deceased was crossing the line, when a tank engine moving some trucks came along, and although witness shouted deceased did not appear to see it until it was close upon him, when he swerved right in front of it.— The Coroner stated that he saw the accident, as he was in a train going to Ketley.-W. Jones, the driver of the engine stated he did everything to attract the attention of the deceased, but without avail.-The jury returned a verdict of "Accidentally killed," and recommended that the 'railway company should provide some arrangement whereby such accidents might be averted. A meeting of the Board of Conservators of the River Dee Fishery District was held last week at Chester^under the presidency of Mr. H. Robertson, M.P., to consider certain proposals relating to by-laws. The fcrst by-law proposed to be altered was the. one which limits the nets to be used for the taking of salmon to two kinds, the draft- and the coracle nets, and the alteration pro- Dosed was te admit the use of the trammel nets. A memorial had been received by the Conservators from fee fishermen «f Connah's Quay, praying that the use of irfmmel nets might be legalised and licensed. rlhe sup- Dorters of the alteration urged that to legalise the net would not increase the number used, but would bring in a considerable sum of money from licences. An old fisher- man from Connah's Quay, who said he had been a fisherman sixty years said he had alwaya ^ed a trammel net, which was the only one that^ould be used in the nart of the river below Burton Point. It was re solved to allow the use of the trammel net below Burton Point, on the payment of an annual licence of £5 for every fifty vards of list. It was decided that the mesh of the net should be nut less than 2* inches for the middle net, and it was also decided to ask the Secretary of State for power to alter tke scale of licences by the introduction of the trammel net. It was explained that if the licence was fixed by by-law the penalty for not taking out one could only be £5., -whereas if fixed in the manner proposed it could be fixed at £20. A proposal to commence the close season on the 15th instead of the 1st September in each year, and to terminate it on the 1st March instead of the 1st February, was also discussed. The Chairman said he' had known the river Dee as a salmon river for a good many years, ;and he had at his own expense done a good deal to get e,fi8h up in the neighbourhood of Llan- gollen, and he very ,much objected to the proposed change. The beginning of September was the time when the fish to go up the stiver, and it was only then that the fishers in the upper part of the river got any chance of < fishing with rod and .line. The proposed change would be •Very unfair to the proprietors on the upper part of the ,-river. The proposal was almost unanimously rejected. The decision of the 'Conservators to admit the use of the trammel net upon payment of an annual licence, will re- trnva a difficulty of long standing, but the alteration in the bv laws will not become of legal force until it ha3 jce by laws^ Secretary of State.
