TRAMWAY PROMISES. Dear Sir,—I would like to en- lighten the people about the appar- ent non-compliance of promises made to Councillors by the Aberdare Tramway Officials regarding the va- cancies which from time to time oc- cur on the tramways. A promise was made in answer to a question asked by Councillor Og- wen Williams to the effect that in I future all vacancies occurring in the tramways should be filled by local men. Only when it was impossible to fill such vacancies by local men should an outsider be brought in. Shortly after this promise was made I find that a vacancy for a blacksmith was filled by a Merthyr man. Are there no blacksmiths in Aberdare ? Or have they got better positions than the Council can offer to them 1 As time proceeded the cars looked as though they needed touching up, and another vacancy occurred. I would ask, as before, are there not skilled painters in Aberdare ? If there are some, why should a motor- man be allowed the job ? Even sup- posing that this town of ours does not possess a qualified painter, sure- ly we can find a man who can adapt himself to his surroundings in such a way as to become a painter's mate. However, the post has been filled this week by another stranger to Aberdare. I do not deny anyone the universal right to live, nor have I any ill- feeling towards the present holders of these positions, but a promise to let local men have positions on tram- ways is. a promise not to be trifled with. It is time that the Councillors of Aberdare should see that they have officials on the Tramways who look upon promises as being promises and not pie-crusts.—I am, your respect- fully, RATEPAYER.
