Barry Urban District Council Election 1899. TO THE ELECTORS OF THE SOUTH WARD. F ELLOW-ELECTORS,- At the request of the Liberal and Radical Association and a large number of Rate- payers, I beg to become a candidate at the forth- coming Election. I am a Resident in the Ward, and have resided in the Town for many years. I have watched its growth and development, and believe that these demand still closer attention. The ever-growing importance of the Town is such that there should be a substantial increase in the number of Repre- sentatives. Recent events have proved that there has not seen sufficient supervision over Syndicates laying >ut Streets in the past. The time has arrived when speculative interests should not be allowed ;o deform the Town, nor retard its means of communication. The Gladstone Road scheme is an example of this. I am in favour of Gladstone Road but there is no reason nor necessity that the Rate- payers should pay for making the Road nor for the Private Improvements. The Agreement entered into with Mr John Weaver is such that I strongly disapprove. No Agreement should be entered into unless the same has been submitted to an OPEN Council Meeting. There will be many important questions before the Council in the near future, and it will require time and careful attention to guide the public affairs of our Town. Should you deem worthy of your confidence, it will be my pleasure to serve you to the best of my ability. Hoping to receive your Vote and Interest at the forthcoming Election, I remain, Ladies and Gentlemen, Yours faithfully, JOHN A. MANATON. 7, Deck View Road.
