_#< TENBY RATEPAYERS' ASSOCIATION. IF AFTER many months of agitation, and in face of many difficulties, Tenby is able to look to a Ratepayers' Associa- tion as a sort of protection in municipal affairs. The new Association has been established on sound, popular lines, and with sensible handling ought very speedily to become a power in the town. One plank in its constitution deserves special mention. It is to be absolutely non political. For many years now Tenby affairs-no matter what phase we deal with—have been tainted with political colouring. Party has obtruded everywhere, with the re- sult that what might otherwise have been good objects for the town have been wrecked and rendered unwork- able. But the new Ratepayers' Asso- ciation is to be kept clear of party politics, and if this important rule is strictly and consistently observed it will mean everything to the movement. In the past politics have been imported into every local election the issue has been made in each case as betweeq Conservative and Liberal, and under the segis of the local Tory Club, whose electioneering machinery has effectu- ally been brought into play, the pre- sent majority in the Council have been kept compactly together, until they are to-day numerically so strong that to obtain a working majority will take the Opposition two or three elections. Had party politics been eliminated from the municipal contests of the past at Tenby, it is not too much to say that the state of things within the Council would wear a different aspect to what they do to-day. Dominated by the Conservative leaders, the rank and file of that party have voted for candidates quite independent and irre- spective of their qualifications for muni- cipal duties, with the result that the best interests of the town have suffered. In municipal affairs there is no room for Imperial politics. They are deci- dedly out of place as part of such a combination; and it is an edifying sign of the times that throughout the country municipal contests are now to be fought without the introduction of party politics. In some boroughs they have even gone the length of passing resolutions to this effect. Political partisanship has undoubtedly been a great drawback to municipal progress at Tenby. Through its help an un- profitable majority have been kept in power in the Town Council, and, of course, the best interests of the place have suffered accordingly. We hope, however, that the approaching munici- pal election will be fought on different lines to those of the past. As far as the nominees of the Ratepayers' Associa- tion are concerned there will certainly be an absence of anything in the nature of political partisanship. Their one aim will be to obtain seats, and thus give their fellow-ratepayers a wider re- presentation on the Council than they have enjoyed for years. The minority have an equal right to representation with the majority, and we hope that things are going to be adjusted on a more equitable basis than has been the case in the past. The new Ratepayers' Association comes with healing on its wings." Party strife is the last thing it wishes to engender. It has been brought into existence to right, if possible, municipal wrongs; to obtain justice for all classes in the town, and to see that Tenby, as a health resort, depending for prosperity upon visitors, receives that measure of fair play through which alone it can attain to prosperity. The new Association has much work to do. There are many grievances which await redressing. Public scandals such as the Borough Treasureship Salary and the Refuse Removal Contract must be dealt with, and their continuance made an impos- sibility. The Association must make up its mind to probe every scandal to its foundations. It must find out why J6200 per annum is being paid to an absent Corporation official; what ser- vices (if any) are received in return; and whether the money goes into the pocket of the said official or the coffers of the bank which he represents. Again, the Association must see to it that in future men who submit ten- ders to the Corporation are given fair play and justice. The Refuse Removal Contract Tender of a few months ago constituted one of the most glaring of public scandals, and was a blot on the fame and name of any town. The new Ratepayers' Association must see to it that there is no repetition of such a proceeding. If all those (more than half the burgess electorate) who signi- fied through the ballot papers their approval of the formation of a Rate- payers' Association will also join it and vote for its municipal candidates on November 1st next, it is bound to score a tremendous success at the poll. Com- bined in such strong numbers indi- viduals ought not to fear intimidation and threats if they join the new move- ment. Let them remember this in the enlightened Twentieth Century, and that their most cherished civic posses- sion should be Liberty in thought and action. They must turn a determined and resolved face against the old, old story that the ballot is not secret, that the powers that be know eventually how a man votes, and take vengeance on him accordingly. The ballot is secret, and the Ratepayers' Association will make it a special point to take advantage, in the -interest of its mem- bers, of every privilege which the Act of Parliament confers. Bearing this in mind, we trust that none will allow themselves to be prevented from voting as they would wish by any fear that it will become an open secret in a certain quarter as to the manner in which they marked the ballot paper. This is an impossible feat, unless, of course, they choose to give away the show them- selves. The ballot is absolutely invio- late, and its secrets will be preserved beyond a doubt. Let the Ratepayers' Association spare neither time nor effort to educate the town to a conception of its duty at the forthcoming municipal election. A change in the constitution of the Corporation of Tenby is a cry- ing need, and until an element of opposition has been imported into the Council Chamber we must expect a continuance of the public scandals which have disfigured and disgraced the municipal annals of Tenby for so many years.

Beynon, vice-chairman for the ensuing year. A working committee, with Mr A. Yeatos as secretary, was also elected. It was stated that over a hundred ratepayers had joined the Association.
On Thursday last, at the De Rntzen Hotel, Narberth, Messrs. John Francis and Son, of Carmarthen, offered for sale by public auction the freehold property known as the East Wil- liamston Estate, situate midway between Nar- berth and Pembroke. Of the twenty lots offered nineteen were sold at satisfactory prices, the only outstanding lot being an undivided portion of land. The prices realized were most satisfactory, and the conduct of the sale throughout must have been gratifying to the vendor. Competition was keen, and buyers from all parts of the country were offering.
Tandem riding still remains popular, espe- cially in cases where a man and his wife are ardent cyclists, and are able by constantly riding together to acquire that power of nicking together which Mr Mecredy, himself a con- firmed tandemist, truly asserts is so essential for getting the best results out of the machine. Although the number of tandems in use now may not be so many as was the case when they were first introduced, the output of them is pretty considerable, and it is interesting to note that of the different types on the market, the Raleigh tandem, which was the moat popular years b ago, still leads in popularity. Those curious on this point should make a habit of noticing the transfer on every tandem they meet, and they will probably find that the Raleigh tandem is far more frequently met with than any other. The reason for this is that the tandem has been designed by practical men, and therefore meets with the require- ments for practical cyclists.—The local agent for these popular machines is Mr A. W. Ran- dall, "The Motor House," Warren Street, Tenby.

COMMITTEE MEETINGS. Committee meetings of the above were held in the Council Chamber on Monday last. The Mayor took the chair promptly at three p.m. and business commenced in the presence of a goodly number of Councillors. The Town Clerk produced a letter from the G.W.R. officials stating that the Council's com- plaint about the condition of the road leading to the Golf Links, also the lighting of the path- way to the Greenhill, was receiving attention. Mr Moss Flowers wrote asking that he should be supplied with a copy of Mr Chatterton's re- port on the extension of the Culvert scheme, also Mr Alford's remarks on same and after some discussion the Town Clerk was instructed to reply that the originals could be inspected at his office, or the Council would raise no objec- tion to Mr Alford supplying the copies asked for. The attention of the Council was drawn to the bad condition of St. Domingo Place, and this was followed by comments on the state of High Street. The Borough Surveyor was instructed to see what he could do to improve matters. It was agreed to extinguish the gas lamp over the entrance gates to Croft House, and substi- tute a lamp at the top of St. John's Hill, where more light is required. An application from Mr T. Morris for an allowance in the arrears of rent due from him for the old Fish Market was refused. Mr Morris complained that although he only paid £4 per annum rent, the place had been assessed at £8 until recently, when he had got it reduced to £5. The Town Clerk asked the approval of the Council to a letter he had written the Local Government Board inquiring what section of the Act demanded that the sanction of the Board should be obtained before the Town Council could demolish the cottages in South Parade for road improvement, as the land was neither sold, mortgaged, nor alienated. The first letter of the Local Government Board was read over, and after some consideration the Town Clerk's letter was unanimously approved. It was agreed that the store shed on the Pier should be painted forthwith, and tenders for the work be invited. A letter from the Harbour Master reported that the extra hand engaged on the Victoria Pier for the season had been discharged on the usual date also that the structure required painting. Several members considered that more painting should have been carried out by the attendants in their spare time, and it was agreed unanimously to ask the Harbour Master to report in detail his opinion of the best and most economical way to get the required paint- ing done. In reply to a query put to him, the Town Clerk stated that the necessary deeds in con- nection with the Old Baths property were in hand, and he hoped to get them completed soon. He was afraid the solicitors on the other side would not agree to pay any of the arrears of rent due to the Town Council under the com- promise until the deeds were duly executed. The Medical Officer of Health sent in samples of leaflets which he advised should be sent to milk dealers, farmers, and housekeepers with a view to securing a pure supply of milk in the town. The leaflets were handed round, and it was resolved to carry out the recommendation of the Medical Officer, the obtaining and dis- tributing of the leaflets to be carried out under the supervision of the Town Clerk.
SWEEPING PEMBROKESHIRE CHARGE. Speaking in favour of the provision of an Isolation Hospital for Haverfordwest, Milford, and Neyland at the Pembrokeshire Education Committee, held at Haverfordwest last week, the Chairman (Mr S. B. Sketch) said the scheme was one which deserved the full support of the committee. Mr W. Palmer Morgan said that the first thing to do was to look after the sanitation of the schools. Under the old regulations to cleaners there had been too much sweeping and too little washing going on. The schools were in consequence hotbeds of disease. The Chairman—That is too sweeping a charge, Mr Morgan—I don't think so,
TENBY AS A WINTER RESORT. We observe with considerable satisfaction that The Bazaar, one of the most influential of the English home journals, strongly recom- mends Tenby as a winter resort, and has a good many complimentary things to say about the town from this point of view. A quarter-of-a century ago Tenby enjoyed a prosperous winter season. Possibly, in a comparative sense, it was more profitable to tradesmen and lodging- house keepers than the summer season. At any rate, in those days the town "was completely filled with well-to-do,, high-class people, who entertained, and made merry generally. But at the present moment all that is changed for the worst. Good winter visitors to Tenby, like angels' visits, are few and far between, and we arc obliged to scrape through more than half the year as best we can. Last winter was a depressing experience in this direction, and how the shops and lodging-houses survived is a mystery, the solution of which is only known to themselves. It seemed as if bankruptcy for half the town were inevitable, but whatever the sacrifices and the expedients adopted, we know this was averted generally, though there can be no doubt that many severely felt the pinch last winter. We have heard people say "Another winter like the last will finish some of us." We believe them, and none of us want to go through such a time again. It is true any prosperity which Ten by might have enjoyed last winter was seriously discounted by the illness prevalent in the town for many months of the year. But we have now a clear bill of health, and the most fastidious visitor need not be afraid to venture amongst us. To the winter visitor we have many advantages to offer. First and fore- most there is our wonderful climate—the most equable in the country, according to some of the most eminent meteorological and medical autho- rities. On tho south side of the town the climate, even in the depth of winter, has been found again and again—for weeks on end, in fact—to so closoly resemble that of the sunny South of France, that people who have expe- rienced the latter have scarcely been able to detect any dissimilarity. Such a climate as Tenby enjoys during the winter months ought certainly to prove a most valuable asset, and bring many wealthy invalids to reside here during what in other parts of the country are rigorous months. It is an asset which ought to be more strenuously exploited than is is, for we feel sure that if it were more widely known and recognized it would be the means of drawing a valuable class of visitor to the place during the off-season. Another valuable asset which Teuby possesses is its golf links, and here we would express the hope that the Corporation will strongly resist all attempts on the part of any outside influence to do any act which will prove detrimental to the interests of the Golf Club. The local course is one of the finest and most picturesque in the Principality, and for years now has been of the utmost value to the town in the way of attracting a desirable class of visitor. Winter golf at Tenby can be enjoyed under the most propitious conditions, and here again some effort should be made to make the fact more widely known and appre- ciated. Tenby cannot afford to go through a winter like the last one, and therefore some effort ought to be made to work up a season. There are thousands of wealthy people who every winter seek out some place, either at home or abroad, free from snow and frost and there is no reason why Tenby should not suc- ceed in getting some of them. ,Why should the town be allowed to run to seed, as it were, during the winter months when possibly the exercise of a little originality and enterprise wonld be the means of respectably filling it up with people who would spend money and thus help to keep the ball rolling until the summer came round again ?
