UPROAR AT YSTSAOGMAiS Lively Scenes at Counc I Meeting. There were some lively scenes at the monthly meeting of the Ystradgynlais Rural District .Council on Thursday last. A deputation of discharged soldiers I 'd and sailors appealed -to the Council to reverse their decision not to accept war trophies offered by the War Office, and also asked the Council to take ste to organise peace celebrations. Mr Joseph Treharne, who introduced the deputation, said the discharged soldier- meant to celebrate peace, and Mr Thomas Williams moved that the Council devote i let. rate to the purpose of providing the poor with coal and giv- ing the children a treat. Mr W. D. Walters, who opposed the resolution, amidst considerable interrup- tion, said he was dealing with the matter j according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Mr W illianis The:1 I am sorry for your Chrisft Mr Walters You shut up. Mr John Howells then interrupted, and Mr Walters remarked I know you are ignorant, but I did not think that Mr Williams was." Mr W. Thomas said the Trades and Labour Council had been backing up the conscientious objectors for years, and asked, Where would the public have been if they had had to depend on them ? For some minutes following the meet- ing was in uproar, but in the end the motion was defeated, and Messrs Walters and Williams then shook hands across the table. Subsequently, however, the Council decided to reverse the decision with re- < gard to war trophies, which will now be accepted.
