I SWANSEA. ".i"'l.1I' J There will be a scarcity or unrrstmas cards this year. All the cards" (and the "riur, are in France. A presentation took place at Sydney- street Sunday School (branch of New Siloh Chapel. Landore), when the Rev. Samuel Williams handed to Writer S. Powell. R.N.. a fountain pen. I Annual preaching services were held at Dinas Baptist Chapel, Landore, "n Saturday evening and Sunday. The R?' E. Cefni Jones (Hirwaun) was "he special preacher, assisted by the Rev. Hernias Evans (Cwmbwrla). At the Swansea County Police Court, on Saturday. James Gardener Jabourer, was charged with sleeping out. P.C. (671) Har- ris) said ha saw the man sleeping under a boiler at a foundry. He was consequently in great danger or losing: his life. He was sent, down for three months At Swansea County Court on Monday, before his Honour Judge Bryn Roberts, Mary Ann Andrews Strand, sued Thomas Evans, Strand, for 11 weeks' rent, at 8s. per week, and 18s. in respect of glass j broken yy defendant. Defendant did not appear, and judgment was given for the amount claiiiiecl-i5 te. There was an exceedingly large attend- ance of the local Jewish community at the Elysium, Swansea, on Sunday, at the meeting convened for the purpose of thanking tho Government for their reti- cent declaration providing Palestine as a national home for the Jews. The gather- ing was organised by the Swansea Zionist Society, and Aid. Ben Jones occu- pied the chair. Summoned at Swansea on Tuesday for aiding and abetting in the sale of sweets oil Sunday, Aluriel Rosser advanced an interesting explanation Her solicitor (Mr. W. A. Thomas), stated that she took her child to a mission on the Strand. The child cried, ?o'?he slipped out and bought a pennyworth of sweets to pacify it. The explanation was accepted and the case dis- missed. Bendetto Greco, refreshment-house keeper, was charged at Swansea on Tues- day with keeping his shop open after 8 o'clock; and also with selling on Sunday. Glyn Bevan, a boy, was lined fx-, for aiding and abetting in the latter offence. Supt. Roberts said the defendant Greco had been fined on several occasions under the name of Pompa. For the first offence lie was fined £ 10. We regTct to announce the death of Mr. Henry Thomas, 32, Sea View-terrace, Swansea, who was for 45 years road foreman under the Swansea Corporation. He was 77 years of age, and had been ail- ing for the last five years. Mr. Thomas was a man held in great regard by the Corporation staff and by a large number of friends. He was kindly in manner and thorough in business. He leaves a widow, son, and two daughters Stoker Coburn, 10, Elgin-street, Man- selton, the sole survivor of a vessel blo.n up by a mine last April ÃŹ6 now, with an- other British sailor, to receive the French Military Medal. He joined np in April, 191;). When the shi; was blown up, Stoker Coburn received severe injuries, being burned from head to foot, and in this condition was for four hours in the water before rescue. He spent some time in hospitals in France and England. Since his discharge he h&s been in Swansea. The National Federation of Discharged Soldiers and Sailors (Swansea branch), at their public meeting in the Theatre Royal Oil Sunday evening, were disappointed. ) Mr. Haggbr. organiser, London, who was to have given an address, was unable to be present. The meeting heard a report from Mr. Zossman on a visit to a Zionist confer- ence, and then passed a resolution heartily supporting the Government in their de- termination to prosecute the war. Coun. Molyneux (deputy mayor), presided, but gave up his post to Coun. Holmes, who said there was no better work than that of helping discharged soldiers and sailors. Charles Jones (17), was summoned for delivering coal and refusing or neglecting to deliver the weight ticket to the pur- chaser before the coal was unloaded. Mr. A. II. Ilield (Deputy Towij Clerk) prose- cuted. The Chairman said it was with great reluctance that the Bench adjudged on the case. It was rather hard to have a case of this kind before them. There was apparently no suspicion connected with the affair. It was a want of carry- ing out the regulations. The man respon- sible really was the man who sold the coal. The Chairman cautioned the lad to be careful and attentive in the future, and then dismissed the ease. Mr. Francis Holborrow Glynn Price. J.P., of 7, Picton-place, Swansea, mining surveyor and agent for the Duke of Beaufort's Welsh estates, who died on the 9th July last, left estate of the gross value of £ 2,(!88, of which £1.952 is net personalty.
