i- THE VACANT REGISTRARSHIP. TO THE EDITOB. Sir,—I was somewhat surprised to read in your columns of the application by Mr. Turnock, the clerk to the Guardians, for the post of registrar. He complains of the work in his office being consider- ably increased since his securing his present position. This being the case is sufficient proof that he has just as much to do as he can do justice to. Why seek more work, or is the additional E200 the tempting bait ? Would it not have been advis- able to state that, with the additional. work in bis office, the remuneration also has been increased ? It is cheerful to note the promise that, providing this registrarship be handed over as desired, Mr. Turnock will refrain from making any further call upon the already overburdened ratepayers by way of future applications for increase of his already princely salary, which I believe figures out as— Clerk to the Chester Union, £ 180; clerk to the Assessment Committee, £100; clerk to the Rural District Council, £100; clerk to the School Attend- ance Committee, S30 along with other little pick- ings, such as returning officer at elections, &c., thrown in. It is decidedly funny how nicely these litle affairs are worked—these remunerative appoint- ments annexed. Here is a man in receipt of at least £8 or C9 per week groaning about the work he has to do, and wanting more work or money. As a working rate- payer, I do not see why these posts should all be held by one man when there are others equally suitable, and who are not overburdened with work, capable of doing justice to the position of registrar without neglecting other duties. It would be sinful to increase the duties of Mr. Turnock in his office which, by his own admission, are now sufficiently onerous. Where are the Labour representatives that they have nothing to say about these enormous salaries paid at the Town Hall and the Union? Did they say it all on the posters when seeking election, when they solemnly declared their intention of alleviating the sufferings of the taxpayer to their utmost; they profess to love fair labour and fair wages, but watch how calmly they sit down while the givers of all good positions dole out the rates to one another Much comment has been made on the C2,000 Coronation grant, but here is an individual asking for a perpetual grant to keep him from asking for more.—I am, sir, yours faithfully. A RATEPAYER. I
