THE SUNDAY TRAM QUESTION. The letter from the Secretary of the Great Orme Tramway Company request- ing permission to run a service of cars on Sundays was read at the monthly meeting of the Llandudno Council on Wednesday evening, and we are pleased to note was received rather more courteously than a similar application twelve. months ago, which was then laid on the table without discussion. Several members reminded the Council that an application of that character ought in fairness and as a matter. of courtesy to receive their consideration, not that they pledged themselves to sup- port such a proposal. This fair and open method, however, did not seem to appeal to others who stated they had been over the ground so- often, but whether they simply meant, by that, the- discourteous treatment meted out to the previous ap- plicatpon^ they did not state. Our point is simply this, that any ap- plication or petition sent to a local authority by a responsible body of towns- people, supported by a large section of ratepayers, and visitors—we do not, assert a majority; that has yet, to be proved- should receive respectful, treatment and dealt with on its merits, and those coun- cillors who are not prepared to accord such treatment to communications of this character fatl to be representatives of the ratepayers, and are unworthy to occupy such a judicial position on ques- tions relating to the local government of the town. The applicants had every reason to com- plain of the attitude of: a, section of the Council on the last occasion, and we hope that when the subject is again before them i on the notices of motion of Mr1 F. J. Sar-1 son, the question will be discussed in a manner worthy of its importance, and I that the Council will refer the question to the ratepayers for a direct poll which will definitely decide the matter for a num- ber of years.
