IYSTRADGYNLAIS COUNCIL AUDIT. To the Editor. Sir,—I was amazed to read the de- liberations of the Council in your last issue. In my letter in your issue of the 1st mat., I wondered if there would appear on the Council an independent and outspoken member to deal with this matter, as Mr. William Morgan, the ratepayer, had done. The opportunity came and passed, but alas, no such mem- ber appeared. To threaten to resign from the Council if the meeting was held in camera, as one member did, and yet remain, is not independence. And an- other member to promise to discuss the whole matter in public at Abercrave, can never make up for lack of publicity in the first instance. What will be said later, and more or less to order, will carry no conviction. For another mem- ber to say that he will give the Council's side some day, only shows that there is no Council's side, or it would have been given at the first opportunity; but in- stead of which, not a word was said to refute the charges. Judgment has gone by default, but blacker because of the great eagerness far a private meeting. All one knows from the Council is that everything was satisfactory, so satisfacr tory that the clerk did not know. what in the world the L.G.B. could have to do with it, and so satisfactory that any allusion to the contractor met with the instant "shut-up" from the chairman at the meeting of the 30th ult. Well, that ought to finish it. and it certainly would, coming so strongly from the chairman, were it not that the contractor had facts. The Council's failure to deal with this matter and show business ability marks it as omposed of backboneless individu- als, and one is reminded of Emerson when ho said Common men are apologies for men. Thy bow the head, excuse themselves with prolix reasons and accumulate appearances because the substance is not. We are now waiting the Abercrave meet- ing and more dodges. INTERESTED. On account of pressure on our space we have been obliged to hold over a number of letters on various matters
