-4. Value in Aberdare. It will be at once recognised thati the value of the Aberdare statements which have appeared in the local press for so many weeks in succes- sion, would be greatly enhanced if there were any conclusive evidence as to how they endure the test of time. Fortunately this evidence is forthcoming, confirming after the lapse of years the statement made by an Aberdare woman. On July 14th, 1909, Mrs. E. Wil- liams. of 11 Penybryn Street—near the Intermediate Schools-Gadlvs, Aberdare. said:—I had severe pains in my back and loins for a long time, no doubt as the result of I a chill. I was suddenly attacked one night with such a fearrul pain M mv back that I almost fell, and a chilly feeling came over me, which lasted some time. some time. 'I' 1 applIed nannei with turpentine, and also had medical treatment, but with only temporary relief, for shortly afterwards I had another at- tack. I failed to get proper rest at night, and had bad headaches, ac- companied by attacks of dizziness. There were urinary troubles also. But the medicine from which I obtained the greatest benefit was Dean's backache kidney pills. I had read and heard of these, and was led tc try them myself. My .back be- came stronger, and I felt altogether better in health than I had been for some time. I think highly of the medicine, and can well recommend it fc r kidney trouble." Cn March ^17th, 1913-nearly four years later-lfrs. Williams said:- "Whenever I get backache pains I al ways take a few of Doan's back- ache kidney pills, and they soon If-are me."

Grand Organ Recitals. At Bethel, Trecynon. Two grand organ recitals were given at Bethel (Welsh Cong.), Gad- lys, on Thursday, the proceeds going towards the organ fund. The organist was Mr. David Clegg, of London and Blackpool, and he per- formed his work in a masterly man- ner. His principal item both after- noon and evening was the great storm piece: "In Switzerland." This is descriptive of a concert and dance, which are interrupted by a storm; then gradually the storm diminishes and the concert is re- sumed. No one; not even in Bethel, could have had any idea of the cap- abilities of the organ before. The dancing could almost be seen; the birds in the wood could be- plainly heard, and now and then the clear call oilhe cuckoo. Everything pro- ceeded happily. Suddenly the music changed, and a storm arose. The birds' songs died away, and in their stead came the moaning of the wind and claps of thunder which were more real than stage thunder. The moaning gave place to shrill shrieks and whistles, the thunder increased and the rain began to fall, drop, drip, drop, clear and real. The storm gradually passed away, and the sound of the wind and thunder dies in the distance. The birds come out of their hiding places once more and sing sweet melodies. The concert re-starts, the dance proceeds, and the piece concludes with a thanks- giving hymn. It was a masterpiece. The musi- cians who were in the audience were all but crazed with delight and won- der. The indifferent were wakened out of their long musical sleep and captivated. So real were the sounds of the patter of the rain that at least one lady's enjoyment was somewhat marred by the thought that she had come to chapel with her best hat and without an umbrella. A glance at the window, however, relieved her, for it was in the afternoon, and the sky was clear. Mr. Clegg gave several other very clever items. The evening pro- gramme opened with (a) Prelude in C Minor and (b) Organ Rhapsody and Double Fugue. The first was by Beethoven and the second had been composed by the organist himself. Then came a "Fugue for organ on a pedal bass (Bach) and Grand Russian Symphony (Rubenstein). This was rapturously encored, and he responded with "Ashgrove," or what someone designated as "The witw fach lan with variations." In "Onward Christian Soldiers" Mr. Clegg was again able to test the powers of Bethel's beautiful instru- ment. The march of the soldiers was perfectly reproduced-the tread, tread, tread being plainly heard, also the kettle drum of the band. Dur- ing the evening performance he played the "Dead March" in memory of the Senghenydd victims. Besides the organist there were two soloists, viz., Madame Eliz. Hall Williams, Burry Port (so- prano) and Mr. Powell Edwards, London (bass), a native of Rhosllan- erchrugog. Mr. Edwards' first song at the evening meeting was The Toilers." a most suitable one in view of the mining disaster at Senghenydd. describing as it did the courage of the miner in face of perils. He gave an excellent interpretation of the words of the solo, and was en- cored. He responded with an ex- quisite rendering of a Welsh solo, Arglwvdd, arwain drwy'r anial- wch." Madame E. Hall Williams gave Llam y Cariadau." She, too. captivated, the audience, and was obliged to return, her encore song being "Hush-a-bye baby." Mr. Powell Edwards' other solo was Y Marchog (Dr. Parry), and he and Madame Williams sang a duet. "Widow scene from Elijah; What have I to do with thee?" The president in the afternoon was Mr. T. W. Griffiths, solicitor, and in the evening Mr. R. H. Miles, High Constable. The secretarial duties were effici- ently discharged by Mr. T. D. Wil- liams. accountant, and Councillor Illtyd Hopkins; treasurer, Coun- cillor T. Lewis. The Rev. E. J. Gruffydd, pastor of the church, was the chairman of the committee. We are informed that Bethel have re-engaged Mr. Clegg for another .1 organ recital to be held at an early date. when the admission will be at popular prices.
Presentation at Aberdare. Presentation at Aberdare. On Thursday evening, at Taber- nacle Vestry, Aberdare, a tea and presentation meeting were held in celebration of the marriage of Mr. Tom Morgan, butcher, Glyn Neath, and Mrs. Morgan, both of whom are useful members of Tabernacle Church. At the tea tables were Miss Edith Thomas, Miss M. Lawrence, and Miss P. Lloyd, assisted by Mrs. David Thomas and Miss B. M. Rich- ards. Mrs. D. M. Richards had charge of the arrangements. At the presentation meeting Mr. Hoard ;c presided. On behalf of the Church and Sunday School he presented Mr and Mrs. Morgan with a silver tea- pot. cream iug and sugar basin. Suitable addresses were delivered by the Rev. J. M. Jones, M.A., pastor; Messrs. D. Lawrence, J. A. Lloyd and David Thomas, all of them referring in eulogistic terms to the services L rendered to the church and its var- ious adjuncts by Mr. and Mrs. Tom Morgan. Mr. Morgan, in respond- ing. tendered his sincere thanks on behalf of his wife and self. He had been connected with Tabernacle Church for over 8 years, and they had been the happiest years of his life. With regard to his service to the Sunday School, he wished to point out that he had the active and willing \co-operation of all the mem- bers and teachers. He regretted that he had to live so far away just now, but they hoped to be able to make their home in Aberdare ere long.
Herthyr Board of Guardians. On Saturday, Mr. John Lloyd in the chair. The other members pres- ent were: Mrs. A. N. Jenkins, Mrs. M. Richards, Mrs. Lydia Price, Miss Hettie Jones, Mrs. Hannah E. Wills, Mrs. M. T. Williams, Mrs. M. A. Ed- munds, Revs. A, E. Sutherland, Wm. Thomas, Ll. M. Williams, D. L. Jones, W. A. Jones, Messrs. David Edwards, David Jones (Hirwain), John Prowle, T. D. Williams, Mor- gan Williams, John Hughes, Rees Rees, Tom Morgan, Dd. J. Phillips, Wm. Thomas, Evan Davies, Samuel Davies, Wm. Parker, Richard Abra- ham, W. Ll. Jones, Staffron Bolwell, Chas. Fenwick, David Jones (Dow- lais), Henry Evans, Patrick Mans- field, Henry Owen, Samuel Thomas, A. J. Howfield, T. T. Jenkins, Wm. Jones, Edwin Thomas, Joshua Aur- elius, Samuel Morgan, John Harries, D. J. Davies, David Evans, W. T. Morgan, Joseph Price, Morgan Thomas and Roger Vaughan, with Mr. Frank T. James (clerk) and Mr. Jones (deputy clerk). Re-assessment of Business Premises. Mr. John Prowle moved that the Assessment Committee be recom- mended to employ the Board's valuers to re-assess all business pro- perties, other than public houses, in the main thoroughfares of the var- ious towns in the Union. Mr. Prowle went on to say that he had no knowledge that any real valuation had ever taken place in this Union. The Clerk had certain information bearing on this matter. It was common knowledge that the overseers were not expect valuers. There had been re-valuations at Car- diff, Neath and other large Unions, and enormous increases had been the result. Chambers of Trade in the district were more concerned about the compounding of rates. But it should be pointed out that the com- pounding of rates meant an in- creased burden on the working- classes. Compounding affected small cottages, and did not touch 4 big business premises. A ation did not necessarily i. increase. Where the expert V DI ers would decide that premises were too highly rated, there ought to be a decrease. The system that the over- seers had of valuing was not satis- factory. Mr. T. T. Jenkins seconded. Mr. A. J. Howfield moved a direct negative. He thought that Mr. Prowle, if he had any instances of under or excess assessments, ought to take his evidence to the Assess- ment Committee. He (Mr. How- field) was sure the Assessment Com- mittee would not shirk their re- sponsibility. It would be much better to bring the matter (before the Assessment Committee first. The Rector of Dowlais moved an amendment that the Assessment Committee be recommended to con- sider, after consulting an expert, the re-valuing of all properties in the Union, and, if necessary, to call in experts for the purpose of re-valu- ation. Mr. Patrick Mansfield seconded the Rector's amendment. He was sure there was no need of increasing the valuation of shops in Dowlais and Pendarren. There were a num- ber of shops vacant, and had been vacant for some time. Some shop- keepers had to adopt the last resort, and let their premises to the odori- ferous trade of fish and chips-and that was about the last thing any self-respecting shopkeeper would lend his,prernises to. (Laughter.) The Rector said he had been dis- appointed with Mr. Prowie's speech, because he had not produced one piece of concrete evidence. The Guardians must be guided by the evidence. Mr. H. Evans, replying to Mr. Mansfield, said the reason why so many shops were vacant was that too many private houses had been converted into business premises. Replying to the discussion, Mr. Prowle said there was more trade done in Merthyr now than years ago. Easier means of locomotion Was bringing the people from the suburbs to the centre of the town. There- fore if the assessments went down in places like Dowlais and Pendarren, they ought to go up in Merthyr. The Rector had asked for concrete instances. If he (Mr. Prowle) would begin to value premises he might as well put a sign above his house John Prowle. Valuer." (Laughter.) In the course of further discussion the Clerk said that the rent was the principal factor in assessing the rate- able value. Mr. Prowle agreed to the Rector's amendment, which was unanimously carried. Coal Assessments. Mr. Prowle then moved That in view of the profits now made by col- liery companies in comparison with the profits and the difficulties of the time when the present rating of coal was made, this Board is of opinion that mining properties in the Union are not paying their fair share of the burden upon the local rates, and call upon the Assessment Committee to take such steps as they consider best to make a more equitable agree- ment with the coalowners." In 1863, he said, the collieries were valued, and again in 1875, and he was at a loss to know why the collieries were still rated on that basis. In 1875 coal was valued in that Union at 8d. per ton through and through. The committee in 1875 had a majori- ty of coalowners upon it. Thev had been told by Mr. Alexander Smith that the royalty was the predomin- ant factor in the rating of coal. Royalties amounted to 9d. per ton in South Wales, and they were rating at 6d. per ton, which included every- thing. There was not a colliery in the Union paying on the ratable value of the land on the surface, and the ratepayers were being robbed of the difference. With an output of 120,000 tons a year a colliery should be rated at XIO,663, whereas no col- liery with this output was paying one-half of that sum. The Clerk: The legal basis laid down by the Denaby Main judgment is the gratis receipts, less the costs of production, or on a profit and loss account. The Rector of Dowlais, Mr. T. T. Jenkins, and others spoke of the im- portance of the matter, and Mr. Prowle's motion was carried. Pontsarn Sanatorium. A letter was received from Lord Merthyr intimating that owing to the time taken up by work at Senghen- ydd he could not open the new Pont- sarn Sanatorium. The Clerk said that Dr. J. L. W. Ward would per- form the ceremony, which will take place on November 6th. On the motion of Mrs. D. M. Rich- ards, Aberdare, a vote of condolence was passed with the sufferers of the Senghenydd disaster. Relieving Officer. The Clerk said he had conveyed the resolution of the Board re Mr. A. R. Griffiths, late relieving officer, to the L.G.B., and the latter had written to Mr. Griffiths for ani ob- servations he had to make thereon. The Clerk added that it was only fair to state that all the deficiency in Mr. Griffiths' accounts had now .been refunded by Mr. Griffiths. That sum had been paid into the Bank. It was decided to defer the ap- pointment of a new relieving officer pending the receipt of a further letter from the L.G.B. Case from Aberaman. Mr. D. J. Phillips, Aberaman, re- ferred to a local C TI-e man in receipt r 4-here had tWf 3 re1 e I Gi The C.- who met

Old Aberdare. I Local History of the Baptist Denomination. (Continued.) Last year Calfaria Welsh Baptist Church, Aberdare, held Centenary Celebration Meetings, and the Rev. J. Griffiths. minister of the church, issued a book entitled Canralwvdd- iant Eglwys Calf aria, 1812—1912." In this work we learn that the his- tory of the Baptists in this district goes back to the last 10 years in the 18th century and the first 10 years in the 19th century. In 1790 David Oliver, of the Rhondda Valley, was in the habit of coming to Aberdare to preach. He was a shoemaker by occupation, and had served his ap- prenticeship in Aberdare. One Shon Richard and others used to ac- company him to Aberdare. and Oliver preached in a stable at the back of the present Carmel (English V Baptist) Chapel, then called "Pen- pound." It was in this stable that most of the services were held. though, a few were arranged in pri- vate houses. In 1791 four persons were baptised in Aberdare, viz., Hywel Morgan, Jane Jones. Mary Edwards and Hywel Morris. These became members of the 1: srrad (Rhondda) Baptist Church. In 1807 the cause flourished and a Sunday School was started in Aber-* dare by a number of young men from Seion, Merthyr. The meeting place was the Long Room of the Farmers' Arms, which was near the old mill in the centre of the town. The local Baptists afterwards met in a room above the old market., and the Rev. Rees Jones, Seion, Merthyr. and others used to come over tc preach here; and later the Rev. Maurice Jones, Ebenezer. Merthyr. In 1809 the cause was removed from the market room. In 1811 a piece of ground was leased from Mr. Griffith Davies, Ynyslwyd (father of Mr. D. P. Davies, J.P.), and Penpound (Carmel) was built, and was opened in 1812. For some- years there was no other house property higher than High Street, except Penpound Chapel, and the chapel house that stands in the back ground. In 1813 Mr. W m. Lewis was ordained minis- ter of Penpound. In 1815 the iron works stopped in consequence of the failure of the owner, and almost all the members of Penpound had to leave the district to seek work else- where. The minister also left and took up a church (Carmel) at Ponty- pridd, and he used to return to Aberdare occasionally to preach to the few remaining members here. Things grew better in 1819, and the membership once more increased. The Rev. William Williams, Paran, became minister in 1823, and Rev. Wm. Lewis in 1826. In 1829 the chapel was enlarged. It was in 1845 that the Rev. Wm. Lewis resigned. The Call to Dr. Price, At the end of the same year a call was given to Mr. Thomas Price. He was ordained minister of Pen- pound on Jan. 1st, 1846. The min- isters who took part in the ordin- ation services were Revs. D. Davies. Wauntrodau; B. Williafhs. Taber- nacle, Merthyr Wm. Jones. Cardiff Principal Thos. Thomas, Pontx- pool; J. Richards, Pontypridd; D. Saunders. Pontypool; J. Jones, Seion. Merthyr, and W. R. Davies, Dowlais. The number of members in Penpound at this time was 91, in- cluding a branch at Mountain Ash. which was under the charge of Dr. Price. Four were baptised in the first year. A Sunday School was started at Abernant, and prayer meetings were held there, and the same was done at Trecynon. Llwyd- coed, Tregibbon, Penvwain. and Aberaman. The superintendent re- sponsible for this Work was Mr. Thomas Dyke. XEW deacons were appointed in 1849, viz., Phillip John. David Hughes, Wm. Davies. John Thomas. Thos. Dyke and John Davies. In 1851, after much thought and consideration, it Was resolved to build a new chapel—Calfaria—and this was ready early in 1852. On February 8th, 1852, the first service was held in Calfaria, and the spec- ial opening meetings were held in May, 1852. In 18-55 the Heolyfelin Baptist Church was incorporated under the auspices of the Hirwain Baptist Church; and in 1856 91 members from Calfaria were transferred to .
