CAERPHILLY. The gratifying result of the Urban District Council election in the Town Ward of Caer- philly has taught a salutary lesson to some who had ascended the Himalayas of their own imaginations to survey the situation, and pro- claim from their exalted position that they were the immalculates oi tne arena. How- ever, to their terrible chagrin and sad discom- fiture, they found that the "gods" were not with them, and that their self-imposed holy righteousness made a very poor impression in. deed. Nay. "the race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong." The electors of the Town Ward knew that they were deeply indebted for past services to two the candidates, viz., Mr W. Thomas, who neither spared time or money in the interest of the ratepayers, and to Mr James Powell, who on a former occasion sacrificed his candi- dature to save an election, which was a very graceful and generous act in the interest of the heavily burdened ratepayers. We admire the grateful action of the town in rewarding these gentlemen for their excellent services in the past in the tangible manner that they did. During the past term, Mr Thomas had to fight the battles of his constituents single-handed, as his colleague was unavoidably absent most of his time through indisposition. The selec- tion made on Monday will render to u;e chosen favourite the assistance of two qualified gentle- mei. that will be of great value in the import- ant work that is to bs carried out by the new Council. Mr Powell being a land surveyor to tL,) Windsor Estate, all his lifetime has given him vast experience it: the carrying out 0' spr.itary work such as is neccssary by an Ur- bir. Council. In addition to the acquisition of Mr Powell's practical knowledge, there is Mr John Evans, who has been an accomplished clncer to the Pontypridd Poor Law Union for wards of 18 years. His carter under the said Union as a surveyor and sanitary specialist will 1" a most valued addition to the new Council. Caerphilly justly feels proud of their new re- presentatives, and feels confident that they will discharge the duties imposed upon them with fidelity, integrity, and a thorough conscien- tiousness that will give the ratepayers no cause to lepent their elioica on Monday. As tr their abilities to carry out the work there is nothing to fear. Fioreat, Caerphilly. The results were declared on Monday night lis follows:- » TOWN WARD. Elected.
