A CORRESPONDENT in our daily contem- porary, writing on the subject of a rate- payers' association for Cardiff, thinks, "the only way of putting a stop to the reckless extravagance of our Corpora- tion and Board of Guardians is for the long suffering and heavily burdened rate- payers of Cardiff and district to form themselves into an association." This particularly well-informed correspondent then talks of a corporation who cannot go to inspect a waterworks or reservoir without putting us to the expense of elaborate turns-out in the way of horses and carriagesand champagne luncheons, &c." He is evidently ignorant of the fact that the last visit of the Waterworks Committee tothe reservoirs and waterworks—the visit to which he apparently refers-was in response to the invitation of the chairman of that com- mittee, who paid all the expenses in connec- tion therewith, the elaborate turns-out of horses and the champagne luncheons in- cluded. But our contemporary was well aware of this fact, and in admitting the letter into its columns without appending the explanation we have now given, furnishes another instance of its persistent attempts to ignore the good deeds of gentlemen not of its own political way of thinking. Our contemporary seems to forget that in allow- ing those of its readers, who are unaware of the true facts of the case, to believe that the Waterworks Committee make such excursions and partake of champagne luncheons at the expense of the ratepayers-a charge was .e being made against the whole corporation, loll, who are jointly responsible for the proper spending of the rates.
