Sir,-Being one" of the many rate payers of the district.who witness the metal carting from the railway station in the centre riding of the Shire of Erankston and lastings, I hear argsu ments every day as to the dayman re ceiving - Iz- per day, and is allowed another man at the rate of 7/- per day. They pull in the station yard and put on half a yard of metal, and then both go out together andfill upthe necessary holes, and ride back.again. The work is only a one-man job.

I, with many others, think it is a shanie to the ratepayers for the-councillors to al...
