NEGLECTED ABERAMAN. RATEPAYERS' MEETING. The Ht-v. H. P. Jenkins occupied tho chair at a thoroughly representative meeting held at Saron Hall, Aberaman, on Monday. In his opening remarks the chairman explained the import of the meeting, and alluded to the business of the previous meeting. The road at Cwmbacb from Aberaman, a cemetery for the lower parts of the parish, and the necessity for forming a ratepayers' association, were the planks which should be the platform that would be necessary to work upon. Mr. Henry Davies followed in English, and alluded to the necessity of organisation, and proposed tho following resolution :—" That we, as ratepayers of Nos. 4 and 5 Wards, form an association."—This was seconded by Mr. D. Jarman, and carried unani- seconded by Mr. D. Jarman, and carried unani- mously. Tho road to connect Cwmliaoh and Aberaman was then brought to the front. — Mr. F. Rowe supported this matter, and in a trenchant speech denounced the authorities at Aberdare who have kopt their improv- 11 'r ing clique in the town. It was the duty of Aberam- anites to push the question of improving the lower part of the town, and the Ratepayers Association should appeal for support to promote the improve- ment of this part,—Mr. Rowe then proposed that a road be made between Aberaman and Cwmbach, and that this meeting pledges itself to support Mr. Howell in his efforts on the District Council. Mr. Morgan Edwards seconded the motion, giving a brief resume of similar promotions of a road between those two places. — Mr. John Williams (Rock Inn) suggested that a deputation be voted to wait upon the members of the District Council to impress upon the members the necessity of a road, and that it is due in respect of the enormous amount of rates that are paid from these wards. Mr. D. M. Richards urged earnestness and effort. A representative from Cwmbach advocated a road to the centre of Cwmbach, and not to improve the present inconvenient and insufficient pathway.—Mr. Thos. Pyle advocated caution, and denounced tho snobbish attention to new mem'iers on the District Council. Instead of Mr. Rowe's proposition he moved that this meeting pledges itself to support Mr. John Howell in his demands for road accommodation between Cwmbach and Aberaman, and wishes to call the attention of the Council to the necessity of a road Buitable for vehicular traffic. This was seconded, and Mr. Rowe's proposal w ithdrawn, and the amendment carried without dissent. carried without dissent. I Mr. John Howell, in responding, thanked the meeting for the compliment tendered to him, and explained the circumstance alluded to, which occurrel at the District Council. Mr. Morgan Joliu alluded to the Great Western Railway passing down the place, but there was no station there if a road was made between the two places, Cwmbach and Aberaman, the company would doubtless erect a station. Then the cemetery question came on for discussion. —Mr. Henry Davies suggested that it should be demanded, giving ample proofs of its necessity.—Mr. Morgan Edwards, a member of the Local Board, explained the question, and gave an idea of what the Board had done in the matter.—Thomas Howells, postmaster, proposed that this meeting heartily support the members of the Board (including Mr. Morgan Edwards) in their indeavours to treat with the Powell Duffryn Company, with regard to obtain- ing a burying ground, and expressed a hope that the negotiations would prove successful. — This was seconded by Mr. Jarman and carried with acclama- tion. Mr. Thomas Pyle proposed: "That we hereby pledge ourselves to become members of tho association of ratepayers of No. 4 and 5 Wards, and do abide by the rules of the same."—Mr. John Jenkins, Ynys- cynon, in seconding the proposal, felt that the ques- tions before the meeting wero of vital importance, and should have been brought before the notice of the public long since.—Mr. Henry Da\ ies then pro. posed that Messrs. F. Rowe and T. Pyle be appointed organizing secretaries, who should work for Abera- man and Cwmbach respectively. < A vote of thanks was carried with acclamation to our Aberaman representative, Mr. Morgan Parr for his endeavours on behalf of the movement as secretary pro. tun. A vote of thanks to the chairman closed the proceedings.
