I THE ALLEGED REDUCTION OF I RATES. I The Liberal party has issued the following circular to the electors of the various wards as a repudiation of the statement made by the Con- servatives that they have reduced the local rates by 2d m the pound "The Conservative candidates in these eleclions are making the boast that they have saved the ratepayers 2d in the pound in the rates, and that they have effected huge economics in the expendi- ture of the rates This is an absolute untruth. They I HAVE NOT SAVED THE BOROUGH A SINGLE FARTHING and the economics which they say they have effected amount to the veriest moonshine. The rates have not been reduced 2d in the pound, but instead of having one Is 81 rate levied half- yeariy, during one year the Conservatives seek to levy from you three rates of Is 61 each withm 16 ] months, thus drawing from the ratepayers' pockets at least £ 6,b00 more during that period. and this, notwithstanding that they have counted upon an increased assessment of the borough, which must bring m a larger amount than formerly. You will find when you receive the I demand notes for tb so rates that the amount is not less than would otherwise have been de- manded, but, as shown before, is 26,60D more at least. I TRANSFERRING CHARGES TO LOANS. The Conservatives have taken certain items of expenditure, which always used to be paid out of revenue, and propose-that is, if they can get the consent of the Local Government Board to borrow the rnotiey-to place it to the capital account, which is merely a saving of the present rate at the expense of heavier rates in the next 10 or 15 years —the old system of robbing Peter to pay Paui. 11 Again, the cutting down of the estimates ( lvliicli is not expenditure) that they have accom- plished is no relief from the rates, because, not- withstanding the cutting down. the money will have to be expended, and will have to be paid out of the rates eventually. I BKINNINO THE UNYMPLOTED. Those ratepayers who are apt to feel the dis- tress during the winter months will discover that the Conservative party, who so loudly proclaim themselves the friends of the poor, have cut down the estimate fnr this winter's relief in case of distress from £ 1,500 to 2500, in order to help I their pretended economy. Ratepayers, do not be hoodwinked There hM been no reduction of rates, but there has beeu au increase There has been no economy, but the economy of post- poning payment Until within the past few months the 6nances of the borough have been manipulated by political parties for political purposes. This bogus reduction of rates is a sample of tha Tory dodge to make an election cry. Ratepayers, be not deceived CIItCUr.AR FHOM THK LIBERAL AGENT. The following circular has been issued to tho members of the Liberal Thousand by the general secretary, Mr R. N. Hall I desire to point out to you the great urgency which exists for the Liberal party to do more than maintain its position on the Co?ncit at the I election on Ftiday next, Nov. 1st. It is of vital importance that not oniy the five retiring Liberals should be retained, but that at least one seat should be gained in order to prevent the threatened turning out of Mr Wm. Sanders and Mr Riehard Cory from their aldernnnic seats. Iu voting for the Liberal candidate of your ward you »re voting also to frustrate the Tory project which, if carried out, would land us in a minority in the Town Council, nnd in working for your candidate you will be rendering most effective eervice to secure their retention in office. Every Liberal vote given to a Conservative candidate will be a vote given to aid the Conser- 1 vatives in (- jecting Messrs Sanders and Cory from the aldertnanie bench. Several of the wards already recognise the great importance 1 to the Liberal party involved in this issue and are working splendidly, not only to maintain our position, but to strengthen it, on the Town Council. If you have not already assisted your Ward Committee in this election, may 1 ask that without delay you should volunteer ycur ser- vices 1" The Liberal csnimittee-rooms are :— CAKTOf.—lO.

Seen by one of our lepi-usent-ativcs with refer- ence to the letter of Councillor White, alleging; that an arrangement was come to with the Conservatives of Cithays Ward that lie sliou)(I liot be opposed, Councillor Cragsman gives the statement an emphatic denial. Dr. Treliarne, he says, made the ■suTifCs'ftAh to him aboiit a week sgo that he should allow himself to be re-elected ns a Labour enndiditte, apart from politic- but he declined to accede to the proposition. On Tuesday morning, iu response to a note from Councillor White, he saw that gentleman in his office. Mr White suggested he should write a note to this effect—" In reference to our inter- view, my desire is that I be returned to the Council as a representative of Labour without any politics." After considering the matter lie told Councillor White that he did not feel justified in complying with his request, and that if there was a de-sire on the part of the Cathays Conservatives to fight h:m, let them do so. He added that three years pgo he was waited upon by the Liberals of Cathays to ofi'er himself as a L beral R'td Labour candidate, he being told that the. Guiseivatives meant fighting the seat politically, whether he offored hin>elf purely as a Labour 1 candidate or not and it was as a Liberal suid La bour representative that he fi)ugh t nnd won. Mr White replied Veiy well sitic- you do not see your way to write the letter, I will tall my committee what you have said to me, and I bopf I shall be able to write you a letter that will disabuse your mind of any intended Conservative opposition." He (Mr Grossman) then came away, and beard nothing more until Mr White banded bim a letter (which has been published) at the meeting of the Public Works' C.xoiii>U-e oil Thursday morning. Mr White said, I hope your miud is now at ease." He read the letter, and then Mr White o?gested it should be banded j to the reporters. To this be demurred, ?nd he handed him the letter b?ck, saying, I should not ?ipe it t? tlw rep?rtfts I would rather fight the seat than have anything to do with it," Mr White said, Why, what are you afraid of y lie replied that he was not afraid of anything, and prepared to fight, He aid he (Mr White) could not prevent anybody putting in a nomina- tion paper agamsc him up to 5 o'clock that after- noon, and he declined to have anything to do with the 1(,tt,ur, and lie had belter take it back. Coun- cillor White said he did not want it, that he ha.d an office copy in his pjeket. This he then gave to the reporters who bad beeu sitting there during this conversation. With regard to Councillor White's statement that he (Mr Crossmau) did not want the letter to be published until after 5 ■ o'clock, that was not true. ) REFORM COUNCIL MANIFESTO. At a special meeting of the Cardiff Reform j Council, held last everting, an appeal was issued to the electors to support those candidates who are likely to advance the causes which the Council advocates. This election, they state, is a critical one for the town. First of all, Mr Maclean, M.P.. declared 6w days ago his intention of moving for the abolition of Sunday-closing in Carditf, and appealed to the Corporation to nid him. A few votes in the Town Council will turn the scale, and already there are seven members of the Corporation interested in the trade, and the voters ar-L, at-tually I now asked to support four more at the polis. Secondly, the electors are urged to support gentlemen who will take steps to remove the insanitary areas m tbe town. Recently, the hideousness of the places has been .f-xp^-ei!, and their wretchedness made known. The Cor- poration could sweep th.?pe away by applicatIon of the Housing of the Working Clashes Act, iseo. 1, Thirdly, electors should press homa upon candidates that the time haJi come when the seamen's boarding-houses must be dealt with, in the interests of the seamen and ot the town. Legislation baa plaoed power in the bands of the Town Council, and, by a single vote, the evils now existing can be swept away.
