"PAID YOUR GAS BILL P" QUITE A CATCH- WORD AT NEATH. COUNCIL AND A LOCAL ENQUIRY. At Neath Council on Thiursday the "kleyor (Mr. W. B. Trick, J.P.) presiding, the reports of four committee meetings of the Gas Committee were read. The full pur- -port of these reports has already appeared in our columns. In moving their adoptipn, Ald. Hopkin I Morgan said the committee had been busily engaged, and they would note that two col- lectors were now employed in th.e work of collecting- The committee hoped that mat- ters would thus be so expedited that a com- plete statement would soon be placed be- fore the Council. Mir. J. R. Jones thought the time had come when the public should be taken into the confidence of the Council on the ques- tion of arrears. Every second or third piaji met in the street asks: Have you paid ymr gas bill?" (Laughter). It was not so long ago when he (the speaker) ;rI? haps unwisely made use of tfhe word bounder." "And," continued Mr..Tomes, "I WAS PROMPTLY SAT UPON. The Council stood upon its dignity. Now I want to be able to stand upon my dignity. I don't owe for any gas, and I should like every other member of the Council to make the same disclaimer." Mr. E. S. Phillips said that much mis- chief was undoubtedly done by the men in the street, who went about saying things without attempting to get at the truth. He had been accused of owing money for gas when he had never had a foot of gas in his house. MUD HAD BEEN FLUNG at public men, and undeservedly so. The whole position would be Investigated by the audit clerk, and as soon as possible be re- pealed to the ratepayers. The Mayor said they lad had a special meeting, and the matter was properly dealt with as far as it could be then. The matter then dropped. APPOINTMENT OF AUDITORS. The Lteily Post" is officially informed that at a private meeting of the Neath Town Council on Thursday afternoon Messrs. Wal- ter Hunter and Co., incorporated account- ants, Newport, were appointed to investigate and report upon the accounts of the gas de- partment.
