WORKHOUSE AND WATERWORKS. TO THB EDITOR. Sir,-It is not my intention to reply to the imaginary inaccuracies of my statement fostered by the Waterworks Co. For the time being it will suffice if the company will be good enough to publish the Guardians' reply to the letter in question. I may be allowed to remind your readers that previous to this dispute the Guardians paid about JB200 per year for water. It is now two years since they declined to pay meter charges. Further, the Guardians have no power to pay bills exceeding six months' standing. The com- pany have been warned of this with a request to recover. If the company have not misconstrued their position, surely the shareholders should be considered. # With regard to charges in Liverpool, I said in my letter that charges by meter in Chester were Is. 6d. per 1,000 gallons, against 6d. in Liverpool. This I repeat; concessions to large buyers do not affect the point in either town. I might have gone further. Charges in the £ for domestic purposes on houses JE15 ratable value in Chester are prac- tically Is. lid., Liverpool only 7 d., Man- chester, 8d., and Birkenhead lOd. I have no feeling against the Waterworks Com- pany. My only ambition is that the electorate should "wake up and use the power given them to secure water and gas in Chester at modern prices.—Yours truly, H. CROWDER. Mona Lodge, Hoole-road, Jan. 20, 1904.
