GLAMORGANSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL. The London Figaro is not surprised that the. ratepayers of Glamorganshire ara, AP in arms. and speaking theic. minds very freely as to the questionable advantage which has accrued to them by the establishment of Mr Ritchie's pet County Council. For when the bills had all been. collected it was found that to elect the 66 county councillors allotted to Glamorganshire had cost no less than £ 6,908 6s. 2d., a sum which seems all the more exorbitant when compared with. the cost in- curred in other counties. Thus in Somerset- shire, a county which, like Glamorganshire, returned 66 councillors, the cost was only £ 2,824, considerably less than half the Glamorganshire total. This. Welsh county has the unpleasant distinction of heading the list of English and Welsh counties with the most expensive series of council elections. It is true that it cost Z12,453 to elect the 116 London coubty councillors, but the Metropolis in such a matter stands alone, and cannot be fairly compared with an ordinary county. Under the circumstances, the Figaro thinks the ratepayers of Glamorganshire are quite justified in refusing to pay the large sum in question, and in insisting that the charges shall be." taxed," as the. Act provides.
