RUTHIN GAS. To the Editor of the NORTH WALES TIMES. SIR, The noxious illuminant supplied to the town at present is really insufferable. The stanch must be injurious to health. Li fact, I know of in- stances where persons have bcome ill from its effects. One householder could not trace the origin of it, and had his cellars overhauled in the expectation of exhuming a dead cat in an advanced state of glorification. I wonder what the article is made of It is called 'gas' (Oh, ye gods and little fishes!) It can t be coal. I am inclined to the 'dead cat'theory personally. If nothing is done to remedy the state of things, this town will be 'to let with vacant possession shortly, the tenant to provide his own candles. Pity the poor gas consumer On one hand, his Champion (?), an imbecile Town Council, consisting of persons connected with the Gas Company, either as directors, lawyers, shareholders, or their 'wives and relations;' on the other, a rapacious Gas Company with no body -to kick or soul to damn' subjecting him to a slow, but sure process of asphyxiation at only 5s. 9d. per 1,000 feet. What can he ask for more at the price ? Some people are never satisfied. Yours, &c., A SURVIVOR. Ruthin, January 8th, 1900.
