Mountain Ash 2nd X V.âThe return match between these teams took place on the Public Park on Saturday last in a continual downpour of rain and ended in a win for the Rangers by 1 try 4 touches down to 1 touch down. W. Smith, J. Phillips, T. Welch, J. Thomas, W. Nicholls, D. Jenkins, played well for the Rangers The try was obtained by J. Thomas and T. Welch made a good attempt at a goal from a difficult angle, the ball falling short by half-a-yard. A BAD SPECULATION.âAt the meeting of the assessment committee on Saturday (MrR. H. Rhys in the chair), Mr David Williams, Taff Vale Brewery, applied for a reduction in the assessment of a house which he had erected at Cwmfelin. He explained that he spent £2,000 on the premises, which were now assessed at j635 gross, and £30 as the rateable value, and some out-door trade had been done there. The license lapsed 15 months ago, and for six months past it had been let at JE12 a year, including rates and taxes. He had never got a penny profit out of it, but if times im- proved he should very likely apply for a license. After some discussion, it was agreed to reduce the gross value to JE20, the rateable value to be JE17. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.âThe Merthyr Board of Guardians met on Saturday, under the pre- sidency of Mr R. H. Rhys. A lengthy com- munication was received from the Local Government Board giving suggestions as to the best means of affording relief tc persons affected by the depression. The Chairman said he did not think the state of poverty was so great yet as to render it necessary for the board to take steps suggested by the letter. Mr Richaids said he had resided 18 years in Aberdare, and he had never known so much begging from door to door as that which he had noticed lately. Dr James thought they ought to take the letter into consideration, as it was generally under- stood the colliers were only working two and three days a week. No resolution was come to on the matter. THE ABERDARE CHORAL UNIoN-The Aber- dare Choral Union, on Tuesday last, finally decided upon the work for representation at the coming Christmas Concerts. They have resolved to render Dr Parry's popular opera Blodwen," which they intend rehearsing as soon as practicable. They are now rehearsing some National Airs for the coming benefit concert for one of their number (Miss Devonald) which will be held early in May. Their next cheap concert was also decided to be held on April 13th and a continuation of the series at intervals of a month was considered desirable It was also deemed adviseable to i invite additions to the Tenor and Bass sections of the Union in order to counter-balance the strength of the other sections. Volunteers are therefore requested to acquaint the secretary, Mr D. P. Davies, 17, Commercial Street, Aber- dare, in the event of their wishing to join. Early application for the vacancies should be made as the. lists will be closed as early as possible.
