TO THE EDITOK. Sir, —Kindly find room for the following facts and fancies. Fact—On March 31st the Borough Council unanimously decided to have thirty (30) chains of concrete channelling in three streets on the west side of the railway line put in hand, also five chains in East street north. Fancy—'That Burnett street being in the proud position of having a Councillor as a resident accounts for the work having been done in that street so promptly* Fact —On 14th April a tender 1 was accepted for concrete channelling, in accordance with the resolution of 31st March, to be completed at the rate of ten chains per. week. Fancy—That the Council has not agreed to enforce any penalties for the non'pe formance of the above contract to time.' Fact—That the Council on 28th April agreed to have about 34 chains of channell- ' ing in three sections in streets on the east side of the railway, done at once. Fancy—That no tenders have been called for yet for this work, but that probably the channelling will be done nevertheless, Fact—That if the ratepayers on West side of the town dont stir up the Council, they will find the channelling in their locality, left over for this winter. Fancy—That if the Council does not decide upon some means of seeing 'hat their resolutions are en rkdout, the Works Committee will have to run the show aUocteth'T, The Jubilee clock will keep till next time.—l am etc., Slops.
