L1ANDEBIE. LLANDEBIE. The election of District Councillors causes the electors to wakeup onceagaj II. Mr. R. Mathews (schoolmaster) and Mr. A. Williams (ironmonger) held a joint meeting in support of their candidature at the Schoolroom on Wednesday night' of last week. The meeting was well attended, shewing the interest evinced in the contest. Rey. P. Evans (Metho- dist minister) was chosen as chairman, and again proved himself an efficient and capable stearer. Mr. A. Williams was the first to address the meeting, and gave a lengthy, comprehensive, and lucid explanai ion of his aims and public object. He emphasised the j fact of having to pay a road surveyor who had not the abilities and qualifications of an en- gineer, and pointed to some glaring instances f of the ratepayers' money having been squan- dered owing to this lack of ability. Mr. R. Mathews dealt with the water scheme muddle and the system of assessment. He clearly proved the unfairness of the methods adopted at present. Mr. D. L. Thomas moved a reso- lution supporting the candidature of these two [ gentlemen, and urged on all present to do their best to place men of ability to represent their interests. The Rev. C. Evans (Congrega- tional minister) seconded in a few well-chosen remarks. Mr. M. Williams supported, and said that it was time for the ratepayers to wake up, and elect men who could Tfad and write intelligently—men who were not bound to take and believe everything our permanent officials put before and told them. The. reso- lution was put to the meeting and carried unanimously. This is a step in the right direction. Let every ratepayer remember on polling day to ask himself, "Who are the two most capable candidates?" There can only be -olle. which will carry and place at the top of the poll the two candidates run under the aus- -pices of the Ratepayers' Association. -0- A successful competitive meeting was held on Good Friday evening at the Wesfleyan. Chapel. Miss M. A. Evans (Llinos Araul) won the open solo competition at Liangadock on Good Friday, out of nine competitors. Drunkenness and indecency are fast h- coming a grave menace in this district. Drun- ken men in gangs are parading our roads, and proving a nuisance by their indecent he- haviour and profane language. They revel in insulting remarks to the fairer sex. It will be well for the ladies to take their courage in both hands, and summon, these ruffians as a protection, against these unprovoked attacks. >-
