R.D.C.-This authority met on Friday in last week, Mr S. C. Bosanquet presiding. A committee recommended that the steam roller be converted so as to be used as a traction engine for hauling stone when not engaged in rolling, at a cost of X229, thereby effecting a saving of about £ 100 per annum. Sir Henry Jackson moved that the report be not adopted. Mr C. Pritchard seconded and this was agreed to by ten votes to seven.—Sir Henry Mather Jackson called attention to a resolution passed by the council at the last meeting which he thought ought to be removed from the minutes before they were signed. At the last meeting the county council wrote pointing out that a surveyor of the Monmouth District Council had given certain evidence in an appeal case against the county council without permission. The county council, did not suggest dismissal or any punishment, but wrote simply calling attention to the matter. The Monmouth council, however, passed a resolution exonerating the surveyor from all blame, and added that they wished to put on record that in their opinion the matter should not have been brought before them in the manner it was. The county council, said Sir Henry, wished to avoid all friction, and he thought the last part of that resolution ought to be rescinded.—Mr T. Jones gave notice that at the next meeting he would move that the resolution be rescinded.
