To the Editor ' fcnr,— Allow mo spaco in your valu nble journal to try and explain a few matters agitating the minds of rate payers of tho Dungog Municipality. It is perfectly right for any ratepaver to sepk information concerning the workings of tho Council, esneciallv as the -destiny of tho town is in tho hands of the Council. As regards the rates which are in arrears, .the Council lias arrived at the conclusion that it is better to allow matters to stand over until after the election in February next. Persons who are in arrears can not use their franchise, and many will pay sooner than be deprived. I was in favor of testing the case of a rate payer who took exception, relying on' a quibble in the rules. I wont so far as to take a barrister-at-law's opinion on the point raised (privately), p-ho/ gives an opinion under Rule 1G1, we' cannot recover it not . being complied with, or an extension of timo (not ex ceeding 3 months), has.beeu obtained under scction 187.

The motor is of an improved form, the power being supplied by accumu lnMro. Tho frrflftfc ftrivnntncra nf imnh a hnof is that it will move through the water un heard, as eleotrioal power is practically noise less.
