DELIVERY OF LETTERS AT LLAN- ERCHYMEDD AND DISTRICT. To the Editor of the OBSERVER AND EXPRESS. SIR,-Please allow me, through the medium of your valuable paper, to draw the attention of the general public to the shameful manner in which the letter carriers of this district are paid. I shall be glad to know from any of your readers if this is the case in any other part of the Prin- cipality. The radius of delivery from this post office is almost nineteen miles, for which there are three carriers employed, viz. :-No. 1 delivers the Ty'nypwll and Maenaddfwyn district (which is about eight miles), and is paid about 7d per day. No. 2 delivers part of Hanerchymedd and Cwmel district (about six miles), and is remunerated at the rate of 41-d per day. No. 3 delivers Sarn- fadog district (about five miles), and receives 21d per day. The writer is quite in the dark as to the amount allowed by the Government to each carrier, but if the sum received by them is the Government allowance, it is high time than an alteration should be made, for the salary they receive is hardly enough to supply them with shoes, not to speak of clothes, &c., for, unfortu- nately, our carriers are not provided with uni- form as they are in other parts of Anglesey. You may hear more on this subject shortly if tpace is granted. JUSTICE.
COMMERCIAL INTEGRITY." To the Editor of the OBSERVER AND EXPRESS. SIR,-Kindly allow me a small space to reply to the letter of "Gwalchmai," under the above heading, which appeared in your last week's issue. In the commencement of his letter G poses as the mighty champion of honesty, and very kindly (but, in my opinion, quite unnecessarily) throws his wing over the public press, to shield it from blame, and praises its fearlessness in exposing wrong-doing whenever it is met with," &c. I am afraid G himself does not inherit much of this "fearlessness" or he would not have shielded himself behind a fictitious name, or perhaps it is modesty, and that he does not wish to have his name blazoned abroad, he likes to "do good by stealth." No doubt "Gwalehmai's" motive was of the best, and the letter was written, not from any business jealousy or illfeeling, nor from a desire to make the Carnarvon tradesman odious in the country. Oh! no, but it was the natural and spontaneous outcome of a virtuous soul, wrought into a high pitch of indignation, by the picture of tyranny and robbery which be sees (or fancies he sees) systematically practised by the tradesmen of Carnarvon! qtlell feeling is highly creditable to "G," and his action in giving publicity to the facts," exposing the wrong-doing, and raising his powerful voice against such monstrous; practices, deserves the greatest praise. The great self-command that he has exercised in re- straining and expressing his feelings, for six months after the fearful disclosures were made to him, prove that he is possessed of another cardinal virtue, patience. I am a Carnarvon tradesman, and have an intimate knowledge of the systems practised in most of the establish- ments, and while agreeing with all G's senti- ments, regret that I must differ from him on two or three small matters. First, the fact com- municated to him respecting shop assistants is not a. fact. I've been in business for more years than I care to acknowledge, and I have never seen or heard of it. It may have been practised half a century ago, but any sensible man, who has any knowledge of business, knows that no one dare to try such a system in this competing age. It would be simply committing suicide. Customers would very soon find the practice out, the establishment would be branded, and the shutters would be up in no time. In my own es- tablishment every article is marked in plain figures, and the only difficulty I find is to keep the assistants from succumbing to the bullying of customers and selling under price. Gwalchmal," I hope, will be relieved by this statement. Secondly, as to the charging for goods which has been paid for, G" again discloses the greatest ignorance as to business. When an article is charged for twice, who feels the most annoyance, the customer or the tradesman ? The tradesman certainly, because it can only effect the customer to the amount in question, but the tradesman cannot tell the amount of his loss. The customer is offended, and his custom (and may be his friends as well),larc completely lost. [ I do not know of any circumstance more annoy- ing to a tradesman, and no one who is alive to his own interest (leaving out the morality of the question altogether) would allow such a thing to occur if he could help it. In such complaints it does not always follow that the customers' version of the affair is correct. People are liable to forget and to get under wrong impressions, and if those three firms referred to by G had been communicated with, a different light might be thrown on the matter. It is quite as proper to suggest that the party in question had adopted that mode to avoid payment as it is for G to make the ridiculous insinuation that he makes against the tradesmen. "G" triumphantly leaves us, poor tradesmen, on the horns of a dilemma," but, poor fellow, what he has taken for horns are not horns at all, but mighty straws, existing only in his own imagination. His first fact is not a fact, his second fact may not be a fact, and is certainly open to an honourable ex- planation, and his inferences are consequently false, and his insinuations dastardly and ridicu- lous. Here is a dilemma, on the horns of which I leave" "Gwalchmai;" either his letter is the outcome of a high moral feeling, or of a jealous and revengeful spirit. If the first is the case then G" ought to have enquired further and deeper into the matter, remembering that it is hardly a moral virtue to bring against a large and respect- ful body of people an untruthful charge, or if the latter is the case, then "G" is a mighty hypocrite.—Yours, B.
BANGOR TOWN COUNCIL AND LOCAL TRADESMEN. To the Editor of the OBSERVER AND EXPRESS. SIR,-This letter, if you will kindly allow it to appear in your columns, is not intended for perusal by the sacred eyes of our city magnates, for the obvious reason that the facts I produce would not, if read, prove interesting to the silent party in the Council. I therefore appeal to the sympathy of my fellow-citizens and tradesmen who pay the piper" these hard times. It is noticeable that intelligent and healthy discussion on municipal affairs is quite unknown in the Council, so the government of the city is conducted by a small minority composed of adroit and wily tacticians who corner command and secure support to their motions without a struggle. Is this silence a virtue in the City Council ? With due courtesy toward corporation officials whose duty brings them into contact with the governing (?) body, it seems doubtful whether it be always expedient that all plans and recommen- dations submitted ought to be adopted intact without first sifting and deliberating in a busi- ness way for the good of the town. The ratepayers will some day, I hope, insist on this being done. It will not be amiss to describe tho course adopted by the Council to obtain tenders for work and material, and I invite the verdict of the public on the point. When inviting tenders the rule is, first, to ob- tain quotations from makers and merchants— non-residents of the city; secondly, to ask for prices from the local tradesmen. This course somewhat places the latter at a disadvantage, for, in reply to his inquiry, the answer he receives from the former is that tenders have been sent direct to the city authorities, and that no more I favourable terms will be offered. This act of the authorities dooms the poor tradesman to oblivion, firmly shackled and chained, but had he been permitted to be the first to negotiate with the I makers and merchants, in all probability he would have been enabled to offer better terms to the city than those obtained direct by the authorities and pocket a small profit himself. The ordinary way of advertising for tenders from local tradesmen is to put up a sheet of paper on an elevated board in front of the Museum, and to bring oneself within readable distance to this a fellow has to bring into requisition the ser- vices of a chair or inverted tub or a step-ladder, which he has to mount, and from this perch exhibit his flapping coat tails to the wondering pas- sers-by. After this comical and free performance he has to wend his way moodily to the surveyor's office to copy the specifications, to draw or trace pat- terns and plans-all of which, I may mention. are carefully got up by the Corporation servants for and forwarded to the manufacturers and mer chants. Why not do ditto for the local man ? Again, all work for the Corporation is invariably let to certain local men to the exclusion of all others-flesh and fowl story over again. Why not share equally among all the town tradesmen ? I have more to say on kindred subjects.—Yours, FAIRPLAY.
"LLONGAU MADOO" IN CHANCERY. To the Editor of the OBSERVER AND EXPRESS. SIR,—In your report of the above, there has crept in several errors which bear materially upon the merits of the case, viz.:—" The defend- ants have 'lately' published the same song." "The melody purchased in 1877 and was duly registered,' and lastly my having had jwrmission from composer to SING THE SONG.' The facts are, I published (through Mr Trehearne) Llongau Madoc on July 25th, and registered the same at Stationers' Hall, on July 2Gth, 1884, Mr Roberts published and registered his version on "September ,3th, 1884." His" rine registration' as ownei, therefore comes nearly seven years after supposed purchase" and six weeks after my" requisition. Lastly, I never asked or received permission to "sing" the song, as I had been singing it as an Old Welsh Melody for eighteen months before Mr Llew Llwyfo claimed it as his melody. What I did ask. and did receive, was permission to print it. By inserting the above in your valuable paper. your readers can form their own opinion, and you will greatly oblige, yours faithfully, LUCAS WILLIAMS. 9, Upper Woburn Place, February 2nd, 1885. [We gladly correct our "errors," ,but cannot allow you to enter into the merits or demerits of the case while the action is pending.-ED. N. W. O and E.] THE PENSION LIST. To the Editor of the ORSKRVKR AND EXPRESS. Silt,—Iu political addresses, their reinaikable features are, how conspicuous, the speakers with wonderful abilities, avail themselves of every oppor- tunity to urge impressively upon the working classes in forcible, elegant, and flattering terms. their ardent, unbounded, and iutense love towards them, how their hearts beat within, how they sym- pathise and care for their welfare, and what friends they are to the working classes. These assurances sound like music in working men's ears, and are received with enthusiasm, cheers, and applause, the audience almost bursting out singing, For he is a jolly good fellow," working men often being too apt to mistake these ostentations for actions. It seems, necessary, therefore, for us working men to be cautious and beware of false pretenders—by their work they shah be known. On going home from these meetings, and on reflection, the question naturally suggests itself: And who are our friends? Certaiuly not those who pass on the road leaving the working men on the wayside suffering wit ) heavy burden of taxation—the present depression of trade incapacitating so many making the two ends meet. I aui astonished to find in these speeches so much repetition of questions which have been threshed and worn out, and so little of anything new, scarcely anything which immediately effects the working men, such, for instance, as land reform, game reform, and abolition of unfair pensions, &c. such are seldom touched, and often altogether ignored. But with the addition of two millions of voters, and the redistribution of seats, these questions cannot be much longer conten ptuously shelved, especially if the working classes will do their duty. So as to show the imposition the labouring classes are subjected to at the end of the nineteenth century, I will, sir, with your permission, give a few instances, so that your readers may have a bird's eye view of how our money—earned by the sweat of our brow—is being spent. Hoping, Mr Editor, that this important matter will be a subject of leading articles in your valuable paper, and thereby giving prominence to the matter, as it so justly deserves, and in such a way that it cannot be done by a working man. The Dukes of Marlborough have received t4 000 a year for 178 years total received, £712,000. But this pension was commuted last year for £107,000, making a grand total of £ 819,000. Earls of Nelson £5,000 for 79 years; total received, 139.5,000. (Jukes of Wellington £ 1,000 for 68 years total received, £ 272,000, bosides costing the country £ 700,000 in buying and laying out Strathficldsayr for him. The Dukes of Richmond and Grafton get £ 19,000 and £ ltí,OOO per annum respectively. Earl Cowpcr, Duke of Leeds, and others, receive altogether £ 10,000 a year. If these reveal a true picture of our boasted English nobility, good reason have I to die an honest WOI king man than number among English aristocracy. I think I have given autlicient instances to convince any leagonable mind that our silence must b" Ini,ken by an unanimous outcry through- out tlie land, which will sweep this tyrannical op- pression out of existence like chaff before the wind. We must tell the lords they have had enough, aye, more than enough, for whatever their ancestors might have done. The magnitude of the pension list can only be realized when it is borne in mind that the enormous sum of eight millions is al- together spent in pensions yearly. I beg to suggest to your readers two tilings. First: That a pension abolition society be established to carry out the views of its members, viz., to abolish pensions, and bring the subject within the range of practic, 1 politics, to circulate information, and petition Parliament, &c. Secondly That voters elicit from parliamentary candidates at public meetings ex- pression of their views on this subject. \Ye, as voters, have a perfect right to question those who solicit our suffrage-i on matters of this kind, and I say without hesitation that it is our bounden duty to do this, if for no other reason than we do it for the sake of future generations, for it would be a memorial and a pillar of disgrace upon us to allow them to read in history that we have been so neg- lectful of own prosperity and privileges, 8) unfaith- ful to our own interest, and so devoid of true pa- triotism as to allow this black stain to remain with- out an effort to efface. On the other hand, if we do our duty, the name of working men will go to posterity with feeling of pride, love and respect that we had won the battle founded on "justice to all and favour to none." It therefore behoves us working men to send labour representatives to Parliament—men who will not shrink standing by and pleading the cause of working classes-men whose greatest ambition is for the honour of re- presenting us working men in British Parliament. 1 think we had in recent times evidences of men who, after their aspiration had been gained, going on their way r-joicing leaving the working classes chilling in the cold. With a landed interested House of Lords, and a House of Commons with nearly half its members related by blood to the peers, land reform, pension abolition, or other useful legislation are most likely to be evaded and even retarded, so at the forthcoming general election the remedy will be in the working classes' own hands -Yours truly,
A CARNARVONSHIRE WORKING MAN. EMIGRATION. To the Editor of the OBSERVEK AND EXPRESS. SIR, -So many are now out of employment that it is a matter of anxiety to many as to where they may turn for a field of emigration. In I ] order that these may be guarded against any ultimate failure in their future prospects, and to keep them from prizing too highly some parts of the United States of America, I send you some portions of a letter I have just received from a friend of mine, upon whose information un- doubted reliance may be placed :— Brownwood, Brown Co., Texas, January 9th, 1885. Dear F riend,—I received your letter a few days ago, fur which receive my warmest thanks, I must say I was a little surprised as it came so unexpected, and letters to this part of the world are exceedingly acceptable, for they are the ties which bind us to the Mother Country." Away from home, away from the haunts and places of merry childhood, one has occasionally a kind of home sickness, and a longing to see those faces and places, the memory of which are so pleasant to contemplate. Coming to America has its dark phases as well as its bright prospects which are so well depicted by the emigration agents. As you are aware, I came out in September, 1883. The route we came was Liverpool to New York, thence on to Galveston round Florida by sea, thence up here by rail, and as I only stayed at the places named I only just got a glimpse. America does not any way come up to my ex- pectations, perhaps I expected too much, having been led to expect so much from those trashy emigration pamphlets. The Eastern States, from all accounts, and as for the Western States, they are far behind. It will be a long time before gas will be the light of this part, for in conversation with some of the natives I was surprised to find they did not know what gas was. I presume there are gasworks m the larger towns in the east where coals are plentiful, but it will take years before gaslight is adopted here, as coal by the time it arrives at Brownwood is 2d per lb. Just now things here are exceedingly quiet, no money stirring. This is caused by the late elections, and also owing to several large failures in New York. Living some miles from town, we miss a great many of its advantages, to which we were accustomed. We have preaching in the nearest church once a month, and lately a Sunday School has been commenced, to which it is a blessing to go.—I remain, Ac., R. W. L. The writer is a young man, who, in 1883, emi- grated from Mold Fimtshire.- Yours, respect- fully, ARVONIA.
THE INTERMEDIATE EDUCATION BILL. To the Editor of the OBSERVER AND EXPRESS. Sm.-Of all the wants of Wales the want of a good system of intermediate education is the most pressing. We have had the elementary schools and the colleges, and are very thankful for them, but neither can be properly utilized until we get the connecting link. The elemen- tary schools, though excellent in their way, and doing splendid work, do not carry the student far enough, while the colleges are again too advanced. There are hundreds of parents who are anxious to give a sound education to their children before they enter the world to fight for their liv- ing, but are not able to do it, the colleges being too expensive for their pockets, and too advanced for their children, The consequence is that hun- dreds of clever lads are thrown upon the world under a serious disadvantage, and the colleges are hampered by the backwardness of the stu- dents. We have every reason to believe that the excellent Parliamentary representatives that Wales possesses are fully alive to the importance of this matter, but perhaps they do not know how deeply the country feels in the matter. I may safely say, of all measures before the country at present, that this is the one that is awaited most anxiously, and great and deep will be the disappointment if a dissolution comes before this important measure is carried. Let them pass this Bill and they will secure their seats against all comers. Our present members and the present Government have done more for Wales than any other set of members or Govern- ments, but let them crown their work with a good Intermediate Education Act, which will do more towards elevating and advancing the people of Wales than any other measure, and they will I merit and receive the lasting gratitude of every true WELSHMAN.
