RHOS' UNDER. BONDAGE. To the Editor of the Rhos Herald. Sir,—Perhaps some of the numerous readers of your valuable paper will be pleased to know that it is now twenty years sincè" we have had the extension w the telegraphic communication to Rhos ■}, and what a boon it has proved to be Prior to then, those who wanted to des- patch a telegram had to walk all the way to Ruabon to do so, and a charge of 68 and is. was made by the Post Office auth- orities for the delivery of any telegram at, Rhos, but by now, that has become a thing of the past. It was the writer's privilege and ure to bte" the honorary secretary of the Committee in those days to get the Tele- graph to Rhos, and for the Public Lighting of the streets, and also for the Committee appointed for the purpose of urging some of the Railway Co's to e tend railway facilities to the place, and 3f; is now some pleasure to feel that our « £ <* forts were crowned with success, and tliaf Rhos has taken a few steps in advauce, However, we must admit that we do not keep up with the times. For the information of your readers may say that the first pub.ic meeting io connection with the Telegraphic mov-e- ment was hreld in the Public Hall on roti- day evening, August 3rd, 1888, and aftfUC considerable correspondence on the sub- ject with the Postmaster General, 1 re" ceived the following interesting and firJa reply General P. 0., London, April JC$!i 1889.-Sir, With reference to your letter of the nth, instant, I beg to informyo1 that the telegraphic Office at Rhosllanef" chrugog, will be opened tomorrow.f1 You will therefore see that it is exactSf 20 years to the 1st May last since we has this particular boon. It was also in Oct 1892 (17 years ago) when it was resolved to have the public streets lighted by ga.s" and at the meeting a certain gentleman said that he rejoiced to see the sigis of progress, but he could not help feeling that they were hort of many wants. They" had been too backward in applying^ iof such requirements. It must seem stratigle how they remained so long without g&J? in the streets, He could not understand how so large a district was without the the convenience." I think, sir, that it is about time thai another effort should be taken to obtaiif Urban Powers for the district and bidi farewell to District Council-as it is scr difficult to get anything from them-at. though we have" to provide the money., If we want a small Watering Cart wc" cannot have one unless they will it, aW though we have to pay for it. My ques- tion therefore is-Are we going to b another 20 years under bondage ? JOHN EVANS; :—4
