TO THE EDITOR OF THE WESTMORLAND GAZETTE.
SIR, - I beg to suggest to the Mayor and Corporation, through the medium of
the public press, the propriety of giving publicity to the Corporation
accounts of the current year, not in the brief and unsatisfactory manner in
which these accounts have been heretofore published, but fully and
I make this suggestions in order that the present dispensers of the
public money may have the means of showing (of which they will doubtless
gladly avail themselves) that they have dealt fairly and impartially in
their distribution of corporate patronage, to the funds of which tradesmen
of all political opinions contribute alike, and to give an opportunity to
parties who have been lavish of the charge of exclusive dealing against
others, to prove that they themselves have clean hands.
I am, &c.,
JOSEPH BENN, Jun.,
One of the Auditors.
THE WHIG-RADICAL GUARDIANS OF KENDAL, AND THEIR CONSISTENCY.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE WESTMORLAND GAZETTE
SIR, - On Saturday, the 2nd November, JONATHAN SAVAGE, a hardware
manufacturer and able-bodied man, one not averse to calling with his wife,
who is an able-bodied woman, at the alehouse, and there taking their cups
freely, and who is scarcely ever without a bottle in his pocket, applied for
a continuance of him pension.
He was supported by MR. SAMUEL COMPSTON and the REV. EDWARD HAWKES, as a
fit person to receive out-door relief. MR. THOMAS WEBSTER, one of the other
guardians, objected that the applicant was not one who ought to have relief
out of doors, and that if he received it at all it should be in the
workhouse. He considered that if such men were to be relieved in this
manner the rate-payers would soon be unable to pay the really deserving.
The CHAIRMAN put the question, when it was carried he should have no
out-door relief, MR. COMPSTON and his reverend supporter being in a glorious
minority consisting of themselves alone.
A month ago the same MR. SAMUEL COMPSTON at a small board reversed the
decision of the former week, and gave this man his pension for a month.
Well may the rate-payers grumble at the heavy rates.
So much for the defeat of these worthies, now for their vengeance.
THOMAS SPEIGHT, an umbrella maker by trade, a man near death's door, and
unable to do any thing for himself to procure the necessaries of life, had a
pension. At the municipal election this man had a glass of wine given to
him, on account of his weak state of health. This was noticed by MR. HAWKES
(a kind friend to the sick and needy pauper when it suits his own purpose),
and no doubt galled SPEIGHT voting for the Conservatives, caused his pension
to be discontinued.
Is this the way to spend the town's money?
All honest men will say no, and at the next election of guardians return men
who will give relief to the helpless and deserving pauper, and not make a
political job of the poor-rates of the town.
