"NEGLECTED A BE LI A MAN." MEETING OF RATEPAYERS. A meeting of ratepayers, &c., of Aberaman was held at Saron Hall, presided over by the Rev. H. P. Jenkins, pastor of Saron Chapel, to consider some of the improvements required in the neighbourhood. There was a fair representation of the various grades of ratepayers. In his opening remarks, the chairman explained the object of the meeting. Despite the neglect of the lower part of the district, he, as one, did not blame the members of the various previous Boards. Among the various necessities he (tho speaker) drew the attention of the auditors to, were the want of a recreation ground, cemetery, &c. The park and cemetery are now paid for, and the whole district had assisted therein these wards we repre- sent (four and five) pay a great amount of rate?, and should be catered for in accordance therewith.—Mr. Henry Davies supported most of the previous speaker's remarks. He alluded to the Cwmbach Road question, and supported the demand for a cemetery. He also advocated one question at a time and organi- sation to promote success.—Mr. John Rees, Tyr Heol, then spoke in the same strain.— Mr. Rowe advocated the construction of a road to Cwmbach from Lower Aberaman, and the ueage of the land utilized for the purpose would repay th. ratepayers.—Mr. T. Ilowells (Hywel Cynon) alluded to Mr. John Howell's proposal at the D.C. meeting with regard to the Cwmbach-road, and suggested that that gentleman's motion should be supported by the ratepayers. With regard to the cemetery ques- tion, the speaker regarded it as a dire necessity.— Mr. Johu Griffiths (Abercwmboy) also spoke, advo- eating unity, and alluding to the neglect of improve- ment in the lower part of the district. After some further discussion, Mr. Henry Davies proposed, and Mr. Thomas Jones (Scales Arms) seconded:—"That a general meeting of the rate- payers of Wards No. 5 and 6 be called for Mabon's Day next, at 4.30 p.m. sharp, by Mr. Morgan Parr, secretary j>ro ie-III.; that the local members of the Dis- trict Council be invited to attend, and that the ques- tion of the road to Cwmbach and cemetery be dis- cussed."—It was also proposed by Mr. Henry Davies, and seconded by Mr. John Rees (Tyr Heol), that the chairman, secretary, and Mr. F. Rowe act as com- mittee to draw out a programme.—Mr. Henry Davies proposed, and Mr. F. Rowe seconded That we here arsembled as ratepayers tender our thanks to Mr. John Howell for moving at the District Council that a road be made to connect Cwmbach and Aber- aman, and that we pledge ourselves to support him by every legitimate means to further the project."— The usual votes of thanks closed the meeting.
