The Liberals were the objectors, alleging that his name was on the wrong list, being on the franchise list iostead of on Division 1. The objection was not sustained.—Mr Shuker objected to the claim of the Rev. W. S. Jones, stating that the property was the joint purchase of three, the father and two sons, and sub- mitted that not more than one was qualified in respect to the property. The Rev. W. S. Jones gave evidence stating that he was joint owner of the property, but Mr Shnker's objection was held to be good.- In the afternoon the town lists were revised. Mr J. Pugh, Newtown, represented the Conservatives and Mr Rowlands the Liberals. The Conservatives objected to John Pugh and John Pugh, jun., Maen- gwyn-street.—Mr Pugh stated that the father was down on the list as sole tenant and now both claimed votes as joint tenants.—It transpired that the rent was not enough to qualify two voters and both names were struck OU t. The Liberals claimed a lodger's vote on behalf of D. Lloyd Jones, N. and P. Bank.—Mr Jones gave evidence stating that he occupied a sitting-room and bedroom.—In reply to Mr Pugh, he said another man claimed a vote in respect of two rooms in the Bame house.—Mr Pugh submitted that as the rent was under f20 it would not admit of two lodger votes.—The Barrister observed that the other person mentioned did not appear to claim the vote and he did not kjow that I his name had not been wrongly put down. He therefore granted the claim.-Thcre were no other objections or claims of interest.

A special meeting of the Main Roads Committee of the County Council was held at Aberystwyth on Monday under the presidency of Mr David Jenkins, for the purpose of taking into consideration the question of protecting Borth from the inroads ot the sea, — The Cl, rk (Mr Fryer) said he h d written to Mr Case about the matter, and he replied ohj ctitig to the suggestion of the Com- mittee to place jetties on the be 'ch and suggesting that a wattle fence should be constructed parallel with the present seaboard, and that two of the groynes of the Case pattern should be added to the present number at the expense of the County Council.—After con-iderable discussion, Mr Joseph Parry moved that the matter should be deferred to the spring and the proposition was seconded.— Mr C. M. Williams suggested that stones from Ystrad Meurig should be placed on the b-ach and that one or t vo jetties sh, uld be placed on the beach by the County Council.—Mr Morgan, Maen- newydd, sp ke against g dug into great expense, especially against expanding large sums in con- tinuation of the present scheme. Mr Harry Bonsall strongly urged that immediate steps should be taken to protect Borth from the mercy of the waves. (Laughter.) Borth was in constant danger from the sea in its present defenceless state, and to his mind the best method of defence presenting itself at the present time was the Case system and j therefore he was ftrongiy in favour of supporting Mr Case's scheme.—Mr D, C. Roberts was in I favour of leaving the matter in the hands of the j Surveyor. He suggested that the latter should do all he could towards protecting the county roads, but that he should interfere as little as possible with Mr Case's -,cheme,-This suggestion was ultimately adopted. Consideration of the best means of spending the jE150 reCJmrnended by the County Council for the protection of Borth was deferred to the spring.
