Haverfordwest Rural District Council. nr^j10 Tn1,hIy mee^ng of this Council was held on Wednesday at the Board Boom of the Workhouse, Mr T. Llewellin presiding. FISHGUARD DRAINAGE. Mr Bancroft returned the report of the local com- mittee which had been sent to him, with the follow- ing observations: — 88, Mosley-street, Manchester, January 9, 1906. J only received your favour of the 1st ipst., en- closing copy of the committee's report herein, and nqw beg to send you my observations in reply to same as requested. As regards the probability cf in- crease or decrease in the rateable value of the district the committee are in a much better position.to judge than I am, but I should like to point out that the contemplated very greatly improved railway faoili- vfS' « *n wiH in all probability have the effect of bringing an inoreased number, not only of visitors, but residents, to this very desirable neighbourhood. My instructions in this matter were to prepare the most economical yet efficient scheme for draining the whole distriot, which would meet with the approval of the Local Government Board, and this I submit I have done. The last scheme prepared for your oouncil, provides you dealing with the sewage of the High Town only, and depositing it in the harbour at the bathing place. It also proposes to utilize the existing drains, and this, for reasons very fully set out in my report, I am perfectly certain the Looal Government Board will never consent to. I there- fore include for an entirely new system of sewers in the estimates, which, however, need not all be laid at once.; those which are most urgently required being put in at once, and the remainder provided from time to time as the expenditure is warranted. In addition to this, I provide for draining both parts of the town entirely by gravitation to one out- fall;, the only part of the distriot being left out being the small block of property in the West end, which, as I stated, could only be taken in but at consider- able expense, which I do not adviae incurring, bear- ing in mind the necessity, at some future date, for a separate outfall for this and for further developments having taken place. The report states that "seemingly no credit is given for the high altitude the town occupies." I think a glance at the sections will show that this is not so. Further my report states: As most of the roads are very steep, I shew Ramps in many of the manholes for the purpose of breaking the fall. Ow- ing to the good gradients in the Upper Town. I do not think any flushing tanks will be required." The committee evidently misapprehended the purpose of the proposed sewer tamps. They are foi ventilation not flushing. Mr Bancroft then proceeds to show why some ventilation will be required, and to justify < the .u«q,of the proposed syphon to save an enormous amount of excavation in rook alongside the harbour, and thus keep down the cost. The gradient of the 12-inch sewer in the Lower Taw a (1 in 500) he adds is quite a usual one, giving a velocity of 130 feet per minute; and he had laid many similar lengths on natter gradients which were working efficiently.1 As regarded the cost of up-keep he repeated that the wqrfcing expenses would be practically nil, but he had.,allowed £ 10 for general supervision, which he thought would be fouhd quite sufficient. With re- spect to the total cost of the scheme of similar work done elsewhere, and on the present price of materials, with an allowance for rook outting, he had allowed 121 per oent. instead of the usual 10 per oent. for contingencies, so as to be on the safe side. I have never," he concludes, had the reputation of under estimating work, and all of my schemes (unless un- der some exceptional ciroumstanoes) have been car- ried out within the estimates. Further, even sup- posing the scheme did cost £ 1,000 more than I esti- mate, it would only bring the total up to £ 5,315, not £6,0ØQ. Mr Roberts asked if the committee had seen Mr Bancroft's reply, and waa told that they had not. Mr, JJLeppel Palmer moved, and Mr Roberts se- conded a resolution to send the reply to the commit- tee.' Mr J. B. Bowen oonourred, and the resolution was carried unanimously. THE INSPECTION OF MILK SUPPLIES. A letter bad been received from Mr R. T. P. Williams, the Town Clerk of Haverfordwest, re- questing that the Inspector should visit and inspeot all the dairies in the neighbourhood from which mi'k was supplied for Haverfordwest. It was stated that this had been done and the In- spector reported that he had found the dairies and utensils clean and the water supplies in good order except in one case which he mentioned. In that cage the agents for the owners of the property were attending to the matter. Mr H. J. P. Thomas said that in the case in ques- tion a new well had been sunk and there was a good and abundant water supply. THE HAKI-N ROAD RAILWAY CROSSING. A request was received from the Great Western Hailway Company for permission to lay a 12-inch pipe across the road at Bolton Hill. It was also re- ported that in conseqoetjoe of a letter from the Com- pany the Guardians for the district had met the en- gineers to the Company on the spot with reference to the proposed alteration of the lice there and the provision of a bridge carrying the railway over the road instead of the present level crossing. They re- commended that, as it would be a great publio con- venience, permission should be given, but they had asked the engineer to provide for the widening of the road at that point, otherwise the traffic would be close alongside the railway. That matter was being considered by the Company's officials. It was stated that the Company asked for permission to make a temporary diversion of the road pending the altera- tion, and this" a I agreed to. J It was .also stated that the work that wa being carried out was in accord- ance with an A ot of Parliament passed in 1901, to which the Cour>oil raised no objection at the time, and in respect of which the time for objections was long since past. TURNTABLE AT-GOODWICK. The Clerk read a draft of a proposed agreement be- tween the Council and the Great Western Railway Company. The latter propose to erect a turntable" at Good wick adjacent to the roadway, and the agree- ment is to provide fot any damage or encroachment that may take place. Subjecjt to the addition of s further olajise, as suggested by the Clerk, the agree- ment was approved. GOOD WICK DRAINAGE SCHEMX The Clerk read a letter from the Local Govern- ment Board stating that they had no objection to an agreement, being signed, as had been submitted to them between the Council and the Fishguard ana Bosslare Harbour Company. He added that that was what-they were waiting for, as until that was figned, the Looal Gov«rn«jent Board would not give power for the borrowing of the money that was re- quired. In reply to the Chairman, Mr Bowen, as a repre- sentative of the district, said he would Jike o move that .they should go on a little bit faster. (Laugh- ter). The Chairman—I quite agree that it is full time that Something was done. Will you propose that we go on as quick as we can, Mr Bowen ? Mr Uowen- Yee, air, and quicker if possible. (Loud laughwr). After some further discussion, the resolution was oarried, and it was understood that the agreement would be brought before the next meeting for sealing. THE CONDITION OF THE HUTS. The Inspeotor for the North District reported that, in consequence of complaints received, he had visited the huts used by the railway workmen in the neighbourhood of Treffgarne and Spittal, and had found that, in consequence of the surroundings, which he described, they were in a filthy state and unfit for human habitation. The owners had promised to abate the nuisances of which he com- plained without delay. AN ALLEGED ENCROACHMENT AT LETTERSTON. The question of granting certificates for the occupation of some new houses at Letterston was discussed at some length, on the report of the North Inspeotor. It appeared that the houses are quite ready for occupation, but that a dispute is pending owing to the Council:having called upon the owner of the property to set back the wall of the courts in front of the houses. This demand is based upon the interpretation of the Bye-laws and the owner of the property has refused to comply with it on the ground that he has fulfilled the conditions in the Bye-laws. The Inspector recommended that in con- sequence of the ambignity of the language of the Bye-Laws, they should be revised and a circular letter was read from the Looal Government Board saying that a new set of Bye-laws for use in Rural districts had been drawn up and asking the opinion of the Council upon them. It was eventally decided on the motion of Mr Watts-who said it would be hard if the owner eould not let the houses till the question of alleged encroachment had been deoided-seoonded by Mr H. J. P. Thomas, to grant the certificates for occu- pation. The question of the revision of the Bye-laws was referred to the Plans Committee to consider and report. MISCELLANEOUS. The Inspector for the South Distriot reported on a number of small matters that he had carried out during the month, and said he had served a number of notices on owners to abate nuisances. One case of scarlet fever had been reported from Clarbeston Road during the month.
Christmas Tree and Sale of Work at Haverfordwest. During Christmas week arrangements were made for the holding of a Christmas Tree and Sale of Work in connection with St. Mary's Church, but at the last moment it was thought advisable to post- pone it owing to an outbreak of fever. The sale was deferred for a month, and on Thursday last it took place in the Assembly Rooms. The stalls had been very tastefully arranged and contained the usual assortment of fancy and useful articles. A large Christmas Tree filled with toys occupied the centre of the room, and wao the gift of Miss Philipps, of Picton Castle. Each child under 12 years ol age was given a ticket bearing a number, and on pro- ducing this number he or she was given the article bearing the number from the tree. At the opening ceremony the Vicar (the Rev. J. H. Davies) presided, :and in introducing Lady Philipps—who was accompanied by Miss Philipps and Miss Gladys Philipps-he expressed their thanks to those who had worked so hard to make the affair a sucoess.^ They had done so, he said, under most dis- courgaging circumstances and did not, he believed, naturally expect to realise so much they would have done if it had been held in Christmas week. He had found, however, that there was an indomitable pluck among the workers at St. Mary's Church, and as those who bought at the stalls and those who acted as attendants must remember that the sale was for a good cause—the Restoration -Fund of the Church— he hoped it would be a great success. He paid a special tribute of praise to the gentleman who had untertaken to act as hon. secretary and whose work he said, entailed worry and troubles that no one who had not experienced it could imagine. When that geutleman had been in Haverfordwest three years, as he had, he would begin to understand the Haver- ford west people better, and to believe that they would not allow a good object to fail for lack of support. After a reference to the ancient and historic memories connected with St. Mary's Church he said that before he came to the town he associated the Picton Castle family with that Church and he be- lieved now that.it was the chief link connecting them with the town and county. With all deference to the parish of Slebech, he thought that St. Mary's Church ought to be the parish church of Pioton Castle. (Applause). Lady Philipps then, amid applause, briefly declared the sale of work open and expressed her sincere hopes that it would be a great success. The Chairman pointed out that the old bands of the clock of St. Mary's Church were on exhibition in the room, having been given by a parishioneer. He hoped that if they were sold they would be re- turned, as a relic, to the church. Picture postoards of the interior were also on sale at every stall. He also alluded to the fact that the Christmas Tree, and the ornaments and toys with which it was decorated were the gift of Miss Philipps, to whom their thanks were due. (Applause.) He was sure it had been a great disappointment to her that the affair did not take place on the date originally fixed. Dr. Greenish proposed a cordial vote of thanks to Lady Philipps for her attendance and services, and couplei it with the name of Miss Philipps for her present and for the trouble she had taken. Dissap- pointments sometimes acted as an incentive to the increased efforts, and he hoped it would be so in this oase. (Applause.) The resolution was carried unanimously, after which the sales weie proceeded with. The stfell holders were Faucy Stali.-Mrs Davies (the Vicarage), Mrs J, Bland, Mrs Harold James, Mrs Wilson (Market Street), and Mrs F. R. Greenish. Refreshment Stall.-Mrs James Price, Mrs R. T. P. Williams, Mrs H. J. E. Price (Mayoress), and the Misses Barham. Hardware Stall.—Mr Ford, Mr Gibbon, Mr T. Jatnos, and Mr A. Palmer. Sunday School Stali.—Mrs S. B. James (The Crescent). Miss Skinner and the adult class. There was also a fishpond, in charge of Mrs Wilson (High Street), a museum, conducted by Miss Ada James and Miss Llewellin (Prendereast), kindly provided a children's entertainment. In the gallery was a small band, provided by Dr. Greenish, which played selections of musio during the afternoon and evening. The sale was continued on Friday, and realised about 250 towards the restoration fund.

EstaWishod 30 years Leslie Mabxyn, Ltd., Chemists, 34, Dak ton Lane,' London* Hints to Advertisers. I When a man spends his money in advertising, he wants to get it back, and more, too, if he is sensible. A man is foolish to spend money in advertising if he is not likely to get it back. A sensible man may make a mistake, and not get his money back but sensible man won't keep on making mistakes. lie will look for the right advertising medium, and stick to it if he finds it pays. Some people who don't know much about advertise ing in a modern, up-to-date sense, sometimes think that cheapness is the chief consideration in advertis- ing. Good advertisers don't look for cheapness. They took away from it. They mistrust every advertising medium that is cheap." With a good advertiser to be cheap is to be worthless. They know that is costs money to build up a newspaper, it costs money to run a good one, it costs money to get circulation and to hold it, and time, energy, ability, and money can't be sold cheap, much less be given away. Nine hundred and ninety-nine out of every thousand good advertisers in the world have found that high priced advertisements pay best, that so-called" cheap" advertising never pays at all. A fair and reasonable rate, though apparently high, in a good newspaper is verj much cheaper-that is, it is more profitable- than so-called cheap advertising in interior papers. Good advertisers don't advertise for sentiment, any more than a man works sixteen hours a day for his health. They advertise for business. They advertise among those whom they are likely to do business with. They advertise in mediums that circulate among those whom they want to do business with. They don't advertise where there is no business to be done. „ Haverfordwest and/St. David's THE City Hotel Omnibus or Brake will, nntil furthar noticg/ run on Saturdays only between St. Dayfti's and Haverford- west, leaving St. David' at 7 a.m., returning from Haverfordweston., e arrival of the 2.40 train.
