TO THB KDITOB. Slß,—Noticing some correspondence in your issue of Thursday re the Caversham Council and removal of nightsoil, might I be permitted to say a few words. I fully endorse Mr John Allen's statement when he says our present taxation is more than some of us can bear. Speaking for myself, if I get three days' work in the week I consider myself lucky ; yet, in tho face of all our depression, the Council have to proposo a new rato of 3d in the ,C for the purpose of removing nightsoil in the borough. The thing is scandalous. Surely the ratepayers won't remain silent ond allow the Council to do as they please. If so, you will find—as Mr Allen puts itnew rates being struck every year. In case the Council pass this new rate aB law, then I say they have not studied the interest of tho ratepayers in tho matter, and are deserving of censure. In fact, I would even go so far as proposing that the whole lot be aßked to resign,—l am, etc., No New Threepenny. Caversham, June 17.
