MAESTEG. SAD ACCIDENT.—An accident of a very painful nature occurred to a young man named William Davies, living at Park-street, at the Coegnant Colliery on Saturday last. PRESENTATION. — On Monday evening last Mr. Jenkin Evans, manager of Oakwood Colliery, was presented with a very handsome testimonial by his workmen. The presentation consisted of a beautiful gold watcb, and an oil-painting of himself. Mrs. Evans also was presented with an oil-painting of herself. The meeting was crowded, and a very interesting pro- gramme was gone through. Several eulogistic speeches were made regarding the recipients, and he suitably responded. The local amateur vocalists rendered their parts well. THE LOCAL BOARD AND THE GAS COMPANY. —A special meeting of the Board was held on Wed- nesday week to consider the gas contract. It tran- spired that the Gas Company had refused to light the public lamps on September 1st because the Board had refused to accept a proviso which the company wished to insert with regard to the possible increase in the price of labour. Messrs. J. Tamblyn, T. Rees, T. King Davies commented severely on the quibbling tactics of the company, who appeared to insist on their own terms, inasmuch as they had the monopoly. The Board will, at its next meeting, discuss the question of lighting the streets by other means, viz., electricity.
