ELECTION OF COUNCILLORS AND GUARDIANS FOR VAYNOR PARISH. Sir,âKindly allow me spaoe in your widely- read paper to discuss the merits and demerits of the candidates for the representation of the parish of Vaynor. It is unfortunate that a contest has been forced upon the ratepayers, due in a great measure to the persistency of I the pronounced Socialist candidate, MT. John Williams (miners' agent). The electors have told Mr. Williams on two previous occasions, and in no uncertain manner, that his services are not so indispensable to the parish as he evi- dently thinks they are. Why is it that Mr. Williams, aiter his repeated failures at Cefn and elsewhere, ie again foisting himself upon the electors? Is it because he has not already enough to do in representing our interests AS workmen, or do the "inner circle" enjoy a con- test? Days off at the workmen's expense are, no doubt, a welcome relaxation from the hum- drum of everyday life. The circumstances have not altered sinoe Mr. Williams was rejected, and there is no reason whatever why the rate- payers should now give him their vote and con- fidence. Besides Mr. Williams we .have four well- qualified oandidates in the field. Mr. John Rogers, the present chairman of the Rural Dis- qualified candidates in the field. Mr. John Rogers, the present chairman of the Rural Dis- trict Council, although regarded as a represent- ative of the great firm of which he is secretary, I has a strong claim to the suffrages of the elec- tors on that ground alone, but his claims are greater than this, and he has never allowed his connection with capital to affect, in any Ihgree his warm-hearted sympathy for the poor, who have, unfortunately, to resort to the 1' Guardians for assistance. It is true he is not resident in the parish, but Mr. Rogers is in daily touch with the people who are resident and takes a keen and intelligent interest in every cause aiming for the welfare of the parish. Mr. Joseph Price has served the parish well, and no man knows its needs better, and he has carried out his duties in a fair and impartial manner. We have an able member in the "Mayor 4 Pontsticili," Mr T. B. Grea.torex, and he has proved a deoided ac- quisition to the Board. His straightforward actions in all He dealings have made- him deservedly popular even with his bitterest political enemies, and the ratepayers can ill I a.fford to lose a man <tf his undoubted ability and integrity. The gentlemen named have sat through long discussions on the new I Sewerage Scheme, and they are well conver- sant with its details, and it would be a severe loss to the parish wer. their services dis- pensed with at the preeeat juncture. Then, again, we have a new candidate for honours in Sir. Roger Vaughan. It ia true that Mr. Vanghan is not a born or&tor, but be loses nothing by this as the Board is already well supplied in this direction, but I have every confidence that Mr. Vaughan would make a good sound representative. He takes a. very keen and intelligent interest in the welfare of his native parish, and has the necessary leisure time to devote to the duties of a Councillor and Guardian. I appeal to my fellow electors to again tell Mr. John WiLiams in no unmsstakeable man- Mr. John WiLiams in no unmsstakeable man- ner that his services are not required, and that' he has not the slightest justification in putting the electors to the expense of an election, and that the funds of our Federation are drawn upon too largely for this and like purposes already. I very much hope that my fellow Paris honors of all classes and denominations will give Mr. John Wiliams's name a miss on Monday next, as by so doing they will be studying the best interests of the parish,. Many thanks in anticipation-Yours truly, "SON OF TOIL."
