I Ratepayers' Association. I I PRESIDENT AND ITS OBJECTS. I The first general meeting of the Ratepayers' Association was held at the Town Hall on Tuesday night. Mr. Evan Evans (president) presided. The Chairman said the first business was to form a Ratepayers' Association, a matter greatly desired in the town, and a movement which could be of great service. The danger was that they might form a Ratepayers' Asso- ciation to criticise. If that was their sole object, then he was afraid the Association would not live long. He did not think much of a citizen who spent his time in making speeches and issuing paragraphs merely to depreciate and ridicule his own town. No doubt, their representatives did make mis- takes sometimes, like every other human being, but to find fault with the slips which they made, and iiiake no attempt to improve matters, did not carry out the objects of the Association. With regard to the harbour. loan, the changing of the Market day, and rating questions, they might be able to do more to further these matters than could be done in the Council or Trust, because they had more varied views. The rules of the Association were then dis- cussed. Mr. Paton called attention to Rule 20. which precluded the members of the Council, Har- bour Trust and Board of Guardians being members of the committee, whilst the mem- bers of the County Council were eligible. The Chairman said the rules had been dis- cussed at-the ward meetings, and it was only intended that their local representatives should be debarred from a seat on the com- mittee. Their representatives were eligible to become members of the Association. Mr. D. C. Parry, who was recommended by the sub-committee as treasurer, said that when the rules were discussed he suggested that he should resign, but there was a feeling that county councillors should not be ex, eluded. He did not think Mr. Paton was j g right in sfying that there was a feeling in the town that the county councillors should be excluded, but the members of the Harbour Trust and Council felt that county councillors should be. excluded like themselves. The recommendation that Mr. Parry be ap- pointed treasurer was subsequently confirmed. The committee also recommended that Mr Evan Evans be appointed president, and Mr William. David, J.P., and Mr. William Wil- liams vice-presidents, which was agreed to. The following persons were reeommended g to be appointed to secure further information with regard to the Bank of England loan:— Messrs. W. David, Evan Rees. a Mr. Dan F, Griffiths was elected instead of Mr. William Williams, who desired that someone should be appointed instead of hi I i A. The recommendation was then adopted.
