Sir, —I see by the Council's last meeting they proposed to strike an extra rate of 3d in the £ on all rateable property in the district for the purpose of removing nlghtsoil. Now, sir, as a property-owner in the borough, I most emphatically protest against such. The thing is monstrous in the extreme. Our present taxation is quite heavy enough without adding to it, and I trust the ratepayers will not encourage the Council in a silly action of this sort. We want no extra rates, our present burden being ample, and I may add in some cases more than ample. However, I see the Council have adjourned the matter till the 12th July, and it ia to be hoped that by that time they will have gained what they lack very much at present—that is wisdom to guide the affairs of the borough. Now, ratepayers, exert yourselves In the matter and protest against auch tomfoolery, as otherwise you will be having new ratei ■truck every year.f (Though we do lay claim to be the premier suburb of the City, yet we must not eocourags the Council in foolish and unnecessary extravagance. —I am, eto., JohK Allen'. Cavereham, Jane 13.
