WORKHOUSE AMALGAMATION. To the Editor of the COUNTY TIMES AND poST. Sir,—It is rather difficult to arrive at what is the real objection held by the Forden Board of ^eC. ians to the above question, for most of the 0 tions nrged at their last meeting on the 3rd 1 D" are entirely beside the mark. One speaker wa favour of joining with Llanfyllin, but I think not question may be put in a nutshell. Does lS nch stand to reason that four establishments are m » much more expensive and extravagant than It follows that one Workhouse will be cheaper two. A responsible committee of the ^aet Board of Guardians have gone carefully aI1 question, aud they assert that there would be annual saving of from £ .,400 to £ 1,500. O speakers mixed up the question of the rates 0 different Unions in the county. That is a quest tuat will not be affected, except in so far rates will be reduced in each Union by the less of one house instead of four. The question cost of out-relief will still remain to the resPeC^g.. PTnions, and at their entire discretion. Ama'lga tion is simply a question of economy of ac^IIlinlS0llt tion by dispensing with three establishments of four, in a like mauner as I suggested soinjL jeg years ago, several of the prisons of North were closed without inconvenience, because t were unnecessary. Itisapitythatacomnn was not appointed by the Forden Board to g° & the question. Surely no harm would be done J thorough enquiry. The question of the dispoS3, the buildings and sites may well remain till gamation be an accomplished fact. But they be a realisable asset to their respective UnionS any time, and in any case. With such a large important saving to the whole of tho the county as the Caersws committee shew, t" should be some grave and weighty obj.ection III hinder its realisation, but I have failed to w valid argument urged against it whatever. °,,y remains to examine the^juestion fairly and hones aud I think only one conclusion can be coin6 and that is amalgamation. That once carried 0^ the ratepayers will only wonder why, closing of the prisons, the question had bee°foe long delayed. Trusting that you can find room this,—I remain, yours truly.
