HIGH RATES IN THE TOWYN PARISH. To the Editor. SIR,-Having written my three articles on the excessively high rates paid by the parish of Towyn I feel I have done my duty and will leave the matter in the hands of the ratepayers. I have reason to believe that the Urban Council are about to take the matter into consideration, and possibly they will decide upon some scheme to give practical effect to some of my suggestions. Let me briefly refer to one statement made by you in your editorial com- ments on my article. You say If the people of Towyn are not satisfied with the services of the gentlemen whom they themselves have chosen to represent them they must blame themselves alone for the time being and return different men at the next election." My complaint, sir, is not against the representatives of this parish on the Assess- ment Committee but that the opinions and advices of our members are over-ridden by the preponderat- ing vote of the agriculturist majority on the com- mittee who have no sympathy with the urban dis- tricts and do their utmost to increase the rateable value of houses and shops. I supported this con- tention with figures that cannot be denied. You further state that the fact that the Assessment Committee have not accepted the valuations of the overseers is evidence of nothing." I submit that it is, and that it proves the above contention.- Yours, &c, THE WRITER OF THE ARTICLES. [There is no obligation on the part of the Assess- ment Committee to accept the figures of the over- seers. If there were, the overseers would be constituted the rating authority and not the Assessment Committee.—ED.]
