.-WEEKLY COMMENTS. i
WEEKLY COMMENTS. W LAST week, our Tory Contemporary fa- voured its readers with, what we presume, was its views on the present position of affairs between the Bank of England and the town regarding the Harbour Loan. It will probably be readily admitted by all who read the remarks that of all the arrant nonsense which has appeared in its columns from time to time on town affairs, last week's diatribe has fairly put all the others in the shade. We are really sur- prised that anyone who presumes to lead public opinion should make such absurd statements, and afterwards expect its readers to swallow them wholesale. It starts on a false hypothesis, and, naturally enough, all its arguments are weak and inconsistent. The whole of the facts which it pretends to give appear in its first paragraph, but, in order to stretch the article out, and thus make it appear lengthy, it gives a I rehash of them in a second paragraph. As it proceeds, the confusion becomes more confounded, and, by the time it reaches the end of the paragraph, "ye don't know where ye are. Not exactly contented with this, the two paragraphs are recon- signed to the melting pot for the purpose of manufacturing a third, and, long before the end of this is reached, the reader was probably quite ready to shout 11 To what purpose was all this waste of time in I writing, setting, reading, and machining it." This was precisely the effect which the three paragraphs had upon us, and we made it our business to find out whether the writer was at home or abroad when he penned them, and also whether in reality he meant the statements to be taken seriously or not. Consequently, he was taunted with' being totally ignorant of tlig, whole affair, or surely he would not have written such utter" rot," in reply to which he stated that he knew the facts well enough, but that he had to keep in view the sale of his paper. But surely the Ratepayers of the town are not to be misled for the sake of effecting the sale of our Contemporary. It appears as if the supposed ignorance of the man in the street" must be exploited for the sake -of the sale of the paper, and it naturally follows that the town may go to rack and ruin so long as this is secured. A more I despicable policy could never have been adopted. It poses as the guiding star of its readers in municipal affairs, but, in view of its catch-penny policy, it must needs stoop to the sordid tactics of keep- ing them in gross ignorance, and, if pos- sible, in total darkness as to the true position of municipal affairs.
OUR Contemporary starts off with the statement that the Directors of the Bank of England are "tightening their grip on tfce town, and slowly, but surely turning, the financial screw with deadly effect." A more deliberate mis-statement could never have been penned. How can the Directors be "tightening their grip when they offer to let the Ratepayers off by paying three instead of four per cent. on the loan ? How can they be "tightening their grip when they offer to accept 17,110 instead of £ 9,795 per annum, which they are by law entitled to ? The I town is to-day under an obligation to pay Xll,,571 per annum as interest, sinking fund, and the payment of one of the Bank representatives, bat the Directors say, "We are prepared to accept £ 8,822 per annum, and to make you a present of the difference, viz, £ 2,749 per annum, if the Ratepayers of Llanelly guarantee that they will pay us every six months the sum of £ 4,411 for 55 years, and also agree to promote a Bill and get Parliament to consent to this change in the Harbour Act of 1904," or, in other words, they are willing to let us off to the tune of a sum (qual to some- thing over eight pence in the £ annually, In the face of this fact, how can our Contemporary state, that the Directors of the Bank are tightening their grip on the town." It next states that the town will be at the mercy of the Bank," but it does not prove its statement. The terms of the agreement are definite, and they will be scheduled to the Bill. The amount is definitely stated, and there can be no mistake about it. The amount is £ 4,411 every half yearj'or 55 years. The Bank, therefore, will be as much at the mercy of the town as the town will be at the mercy of the Bank, because neither the town nor the Bank can move one inch from the terms of the agreement. But what about the future ? "We have all our eggs in the same basket," says our Contemporary. It may happen that for a period of years, and through com- mercial causes yet unknown and undreamt of, this town may experience the hardships whicn marked the advent of the McKinley Tariff. Should that happen, and the works shut down, we pity the plight of the Ratepayers, the heavy call on the owners of houses which could be made by the Bank of England." Surely, the Llanelly Steel Co. never thought of this, or they would not have doubled the size of their works. Richard Thomas & Co. could not have had this in mind when they ertcted their steel works and decided to erect 24 new tinplate mills. The Old Castle Co. must have been in a state of dormancy when they decided to extend their works. The Urban Council were not cognisant of this possibility when they went in for tha second reservoir and their scheme of fil- tration the Electric Light Company might have gone elsewhere and you builders, stop your building, because a great calamity, the like of which has never been dreamt of, will fall upon the owners of houses if this agreement with the Bank is rati- fied. The Oracle has spoken, and the future progress and prosperity of Llanelly has been undone. We must remain as we are. If our forefathers had been the slaves of such pessimism, Llanelly would not be what it is, and we know Llanelly- ites of to-day will not be carried away with such gibberish and twaddle. 4-
OUR Contemporary then proceeds and ac- cuses the Directors of the Bank of resort- ing to sharp practice in refusing to advance the £ 19,000, which was the balance of the £ 35,000 they had agreed to lend when we gave them the second shilling rate. There is one small item which our Con- temporary has conveniently forgotten to state, namely, that the Harbour Trustees had agreed to apply for it previous to September last, but failed to carry out their part of the agreement in this respect, I not through any fault of their own, but in consequence of the dilatoriness of the Board of Trade. Another little statement which our Contemporary has conveniently forgotten to make is, that the Directors have again agreed to ad vance the £ 19,000 and X21,000 more, should we requite it, at the same rate of interest, namely, four per cent., to carry out any improvements in the channel and harbour. Why, then, I blame the Directors of the Bank for re- fusing to advance a sum which was not applied for within the stipulated time. Our Contemporary also states that the Trustees are always in arrear with their interest. This is brought forward for the purpose of endeavouring to prove that the dock is H unreinunerative property." It, however, forgot to remind its readers that five years ago the Trustees owed the Bank over X6,000 as arrears of interest, and that during the five years ending September last they had managed to pay the whole of the current inter.st and also about X,4,000 of those arrears, which amounted to nearly XI 000 per annum. Had it not been for this, the two shilling rate would have been reduced to one shilling and ninepence, which proves that the harbour is not, after all, such unreinunerative pro- perty as our Contemporary would have us believe. j ■ ,— -+-
OUR Contemporary must needs' go out of its way to pour a little of its venom on the head or3f Mr. Behenna, for having promised to assist in making the Dock a paying concern. Let us quote again its extravagant language in this respect For every ounce of coal during these long years which the firm of Williams and Behenna have shipped at the North Dock they have loaded a ton at the. Swansea Docks." Last year Mr. Behenna shipped 11,000 tons of coal from Llanelly, and during the first three months of this year he has shipped 15,000 tons from Llanelly. If the statement of our Contemporary is correct as to the ounces and tons, Mr. Behenna has shipped from Swansea, during the first three months of this year, 537,600,000 tons of coal, and one is inclined to ask: Where in the world did all this coal come from ? We feel sure it did not. come from the Btiiish Isles. Perhaps our Contemporary will sh< d a ray light upon its statement in this eonueeli<m. What our Con temporal y desires to in- sinuate is, tha Mr. i?henna ha" h?n brought to Uaneiiy. ou the eve of the I promotion of a I';ui!d!!K't?n'y J?H, for the sole purpose of gulling ihe Ratepayers, as his partner, Mr. Williams, did when he gave evidence on behalf of the Harbom- Trust, wben tIte Din for the construction I of the North Dock was before Parliament. It clearly suggests tnat Mr. Williams was engaged by the Commissioners to mislead Par- liament, and that Mr. Behenna is similarly engaged by the Trust to mislead the Rate- payers at the present juncture. Anyone who knows either Mr. Williams or Mr. Behenna woold throw such a sordid and reprehen- sible insinuation back to the face of our Contemporary with disgust. When Mr. Behenna promised to ship 200,000 tons of coal from Llanelly in less than two years' time, if given a little deeper channel, to enable him to bring his ships here on any tide (and the shipping of this quantity annually would mean the total disappear- ance of the two-shilling rate), he meant it, because, as he said, it will pay we to do so." It would have paid Mr. Williams and himself yeais ago had they been able to ship the whole of the Morlais Colliery, coal alone here, as it would mean to them 'a saving of from to to three pence per ton, or, in other words, from t-7 to £10 per day, and no man in his proper senses would dream of throwing this sum away if he could by any means avoid it. The channel prevented Mr. Williams carrying out his promise, and will prevent Mr. Behenna fulfilling his unless ft is deepened. Now, in face of tlils, Nvliat is our endeavouring to do ? It tries to discourage Mr. Williams and Mr. Behenna to ship at Llanelly. simply because the Great Western Railway would be thereby deprived of the carriage of the coal to Swansea. It en- deavours to blind its readers by pro- claiming that the Dock is "unremunera- tive property," and should therefore be left severely alone, "as it takes, roughly speaking, £ 9,000 to keep it afloat." It wants the channel to silt up, and the Ratepayers to pay the 2s. rate and the revenue of the Town Estate to the Hank as long as they live. Will the Ratepayers of Llanelly adopt such a mad policy as this ? If they do, they will be the laughing-stock of the whole civilised world. Our Contemporary goes further. and advises the Ratepayers to back out of their obligations to the Bank of England, or, in other words, it advises all of us to be dishonest, and act the part of muni- cipal thieves, by refusing to pay our creditors what we owe them. Will tIle Ratepayers pay the slightest heed to such advice ? We believe not. We hope we possess a deeper sense of honesty and honour than to dream of doing anything of the sort. The Directors of the Bank came to our aid when we needed assis- tance, and are we now going to betray the trust which they reposed in us ? We should be heartily ashamed of ourselves if we ever tendered such measly advice to anyone, and especially so to a town of respectable citizens. We owe the Bank £ 237,000, and it is our duty to repay them. The Bank offers us exceedingly favourable terms, and it is our duty to accept them, ai.d not endeavour to wriggle out of our obligations.
