r. Public announcements. Merthyr District Council Election. TO THE ELECTORS OF THE MERTHYR VALE WARD. LADIES AND GKNTI.EMEJT,— Having again been returned by you as your repre- sentative on the Merthyr Tydfil Urban District Coun- cil without opposition, I feel it my duty and pleasure to return you my warmest thanks. It will be my Pleasure at all times to further your interests, and to 81Jpport any measure brought forward for the welfare of the masse", and I shall endeavour to serve you coMeientnously in future as in the past. Again thank- ing you for the renewal of your confidence in me, I remain, Your humble Servant, JOHN ROBERTS. Caere in ion House, Merthyr Vale. Merthyr District Council Election. TO THE ELECTORS OF THE PLYMOUTH WARD. LAOtRS AND GKNTLKMKN,— At the request of the recently formed Liberal Associations of Troedyrhiw and Abercanaid, I come forward as II. candidate for the District Council. My opinions and politics am so well known to all of you J need say nothing about them, and the one ^ing I desire the electors to keep steadily before them is the fact that while no new sources of income are found, the burden of rates is getting heavier con- tinually, and in some respects needlessly. In Imperial taxes we have adopted the principle that those best ..hie to bear the load shall do so, but locally, as the Notorious Water Act proves, the policy has been to ^Wge the rate upon the labourers, the colliers, and householders generally, while the collieries, railways, "I'd steelworks get off almost scot free. As you will remember. I strongly opposed this, and th,o electors in all public meetings supported my oppo- sition. You have now a grand oppoi tunity of passing ^u<lgment on those who, to save their own pockets, ggddle the poorest class of the community, with an aanual burden exceeding £4,000. Whilst nearly £ 20,033 is being expanded for Public for the benefit chiefly of Merthyr, nothing is for the lower district. This ought not to be. want, for one thing, Public Libraries in each locality, which would cost little, and do immense Rood. If returned, the special needs of Plymouth Ward ^•11 always deserve and receive my faithful attention. I am, Ladies and Gentlemen, Yours faithfully, ARTHUR DANIEL. ^^Troedyrhiw, March 18th, 1896.
