Rhos and the Newspapers. SCANDALOUS UNTRUTHS. The good name of Rhos has in the past been slandered more than once in the daily newspapers. Ridiculous and un- truthful reports, under such headings as HOOLIGANS AT RHOS ROWDY RHOS MINERS. MUD THROWING AT RHOS have periodically appeared, and strangers reading these unfounded charges, have come to regard Rhos as a most fearful place. Rhos people rightfully resent such rid- iculous fables. The frigid and calculated lies circulated about the place in the newspapers and in the mouths of people, have not the slightest foundation. The latest example of this absurd sland- ering appeared in the Tory Press this week. One newspaper said that the Rhos rowdies on polling day repeated the conduct of Carnarvon roughs, who were cowardly enough to attack even ladies who wore the colour of the Unionist can- didate. The same paper went on to say | that a car, containing the acting Sheriff j for the County (Mr Robertson) and Major I Leadbetter, the Chief Constable, was pelted with mud as it passed through the streets of Rhos. We need hardly say that there is not the slightest truth in this statement. In the place the streets of Rhos were frozen hard, and it was 'impossible' to scrape a handful of mud. In the second j place, Sheriff Robertson speaking at the I declaration of the poll at Wrexham, said he had seen the report of mud throwing' in the newspapers, and he took that op* portuiiky f publicly -I=uy:ng strte* ment. Rhos, he said, was one ot the most orderly places he had driven through on polling day. We might here mention that mant Wrexham people when speaking of Rhos,, give full play to their imagination. For instance On Wednesday week, a proceso- sion of rowdy youths marching up and down the streets of Wrexham, were pointed out as being" Hooligans front Rhos." Not one of the youths in ques-e tion were from Rhos, but were all delect- able Wrexham) sports." It is high time these untruthful reports' came to an end. For the most part they aie concocted by prejudiced outsiders,
