Colwyn Bay and District Rate- payers Association. THE COLWYN MEETING. To the ElInoR of the Weekly News." SIR, AS one of those who were present at the public meeting held here a fortnight ago under the auspices of the above-named Association, I, in common with others, felt that a much larger number of the ratepayers should have turned up. And why, may we ask, were there not more present? What was the true answer? I would like to sug- gest a few thoughts for consideration, one or other of which may have accounted for the absence of so many from the meeting and I would do so by asking a few further questions Was the meeting sufficiently ad- vertised? Was it clear what, if anv, were the practical purposes of the meeting? Were, the Colwyn ratepayers satisfied that their interests would be promoted bv the Colwyn Hay and District Ratepayers Asso- ciation ? Whatever may be the answers to the first two qeries, there can be no question that Colwyn has its own very special require- ments, to the need of which only Colwyn ratepayers can be expected to be alive. Colwyn Bay is well cared for; and so is Rhos. This fact should rouse Colwyn to demand its rightful share of improvements at the hands of the Council. Colwyn wants better roads, better streets, better parapets. It wants name plates to tell people where they live, and the rate collectors (?) where they may find us. Colwyn wants more and better lights. Residents, as well as visitors, have to feel their way about at night. They have eyes, but they see not." Would Colwyn Bay or Rhos tolerate such a state of affairs? Colwyn representees on the Council, I feel sure, can do much more for Colwyn if the ratepayers will only wake up, and form an Association of their own. WT13' not?—I am, etc., Colwyn. II. O. HUGHES.
