IMPORTANT TEMPERANCE CONFERENCE…
IMPORTANT TEMPERANCE CONFERENCE AT PORTH. An important conference was held on Monday last (Mabon's Day), at Salem Chapel, Porth, in connection with the Rhondda Temperance Defence League, in order to bring pressure to bear on the licensing magistrates at the next Brewster Sessions, with a view to reducing the number of public-houses in Pontypridd and the Rhondda Valley. Mr. Griffith Thomas, colliery manager, Mardy, occupied the chair, and amongst those present we noticed the Revs. W. 1. Morris, Pontypridd P. H. James. Caerphllly H. Ellis, Trealaw J. Williams, Havod B. Davies, Pontypridd; Collin Pearce. Penygraig L. Ton Evans, Cadoxton Robert Roberts, Treorky W. Lewis, Cwmpark; J. Jones, Ffrwdamos (secre- tary) Messrs. D. Jenkins, Hopkinstown Daniel Williams, Pontypridd W. Williams (Meton) G. Hughes (Sollth Wtilcx Daily Xnr.s), F. J. Harris (Western Mail), Evan R. Evans (S>ufh Wulex Star), &c., &c. The meeting having been commenced by prayor, Mr. Anthony Dew made an application that the meeting should be carried on partly in English. —The Secretary (Rev. H. Jones) read telegrams of apology for absence from the Rev. J. P. Hughes, vicar of Llantrisant: Councillor E. Bevan, Cardiff; and a lengthy letter from Mr. W. W. Phillips. each of whom expressed their entire approval of the resolutions submitted.—A letter was also read from Mr. Isaac Lile, of Hopkinstown. on behalf of the local branch of the A.S.R.S. complain# that the Llanwonno School Board had refused the use of their schools for holding Sun- day meetings, and that the society was loth to meet in public-houses. The secretary then pro- ceed to say that several suggestions had been made since the holding of the last conference, one was that hymn sheets should be published contain- ing temperance hymns for distribution, another that a grand conference should be held in order that the temperance friends in the Rhondda and other parts should co-operate and work in a more effective manner, and invitations be sent to Sir Wilfrid Lawson, M.P., Messrs. W. S. Caine, J.P. Lloyd George, M.P. and T. E. Ellis, M.P., and that an appeal should be sent to the proprietors of the newspapers for better information regarding tem- perance questions. With reference to the financial position of the league the secretary said that.£5 had been received from Colonel Turbervill, and 10s. 6d. from Ystrad. The expenditure amounted to :£ I 4s. (id., so that there was now in hand a sum of £4 6s.—It was resolved that the out-of-pocket expenses of Dr. L. Probert, Pentre S. Jenkins, Llwynpia; and J. C, Evans, Gilfach Goch, should be refunded. Tho Rev. J. Williams, Havod, in moving the first resolution said they all knew that the liquor traffic was the means of creating a multitude of sins, and having referred to the decision of the House of Lords in the case ef Sharpe v. Wrakefield, went on to say they had thepowernow,iftheywished to do so, to reduce the same considerably if not to stop it altogether. (Cheers). He was very glad indeed to see the movement on foot to remove from public houses the many friendly societies of the district. Some clubs hailed with joy the movement, whilst others resented the inter- ference, but when they thought of the havoc made among young men who joined these clubs they would at once join in the cry for the re- moval from public houses. He also hailed with great satisfaction the passing of the Direct Veto Bill, and when that came into law a great deal of power would be taken from the magistrates and placed in the hands of the people, and then it would be their duty as Christian ministers to teach the people to do their part in fighting against this great evil. (Cheers.) He had great pleasure in moving the following resolution :— That this public conference of the inhabitants of Ponty- liriilil and Hlmnilda Valleys feeling deeply impressed with the solemn filets that the liquor tranic is a prolific source of poverty, crime, and immorality in these districts, and that the facilities for the sale of intoxicating liquors are already in ex- cess of any legitillmte demands in most localities, awl con" sidering further the absolute power the licensing authorities possess over the reuewal of licenses, aeclmling to the reeent decision of the House of Lords in the case of Sharpe v. Wake- field, hereby sincerely awl respectfully urges uixm the licensing magistrates of the 1'ontypridd liistriet 1. Not to grant any now licences at the next Brewster Sessions. 2. 1' reduce the number of existing public-houses as far aa pi issible. 3. 1'.) grant six"lay licences only to keepers of houses (whose licences may be renewed) who have been convicted for viobtio/ls of the provisiolls of the Sunday Closing Act. Mr. W. Williams (Meton) seconded, and said that the magisterial bench during-the past year or two had done much for the temperance cause, and expressed a hops that they would continue to do so.—Mr. Morgan Weekes, miners' agent, supported the resolution.—Rev. B. Davies, Pontypridd. thought the resolution was not strong enough, and asked whether it would not be well to ask the magistrates to refuse a renewal of licenses where the same had been endorsed.—Rev. W. I. Morris said there were very few endorsements in the dis- trict, hence the form the resolution had taken. A resolution to the same effect would be sub- mitted to the Joint Standing Police Committee that day, and it was thought it would be a good thing if the same resolution were passed at two different meetings.—The resolution was then put to the meeting and carried amid applause.—The following gentlemen were then appointed a depu- tation to present the resolution to the magistiates at the next Brewster Sessions.—Rev. W. I. Morris (to introduce the deputation), Mr. Alderman J. Jones Jenkins (to read the resolution), and Messrs. Anthony Dew, D. J. Rees, J. Thomas (Great Western Colliery), D. Thomas (Tonyrefail), and Morgan Weekes (miners' agent) to support the same. Rev. Robert Roberts, Treorky, then moved the following resolution:— That this couferelleû acknowledges with satisfaction the valuable service rendered t" the cause ot public order awl morality by the Glamorganshire Joint Police Committee in their laudable anil persevering dÍorts to dimillbh the evils of the liquor traffic, by adopting such measures as will tend tend to enforce the Sunday Closing and other Acts with greater efficiency. and in the course of his remarks said he looked upon the past action of the police committee as a very good sign.—Mr. John Thomas, manager of the Great Western Colliery, in seconding, referred to the difficulties he had experienced in past years in petitioning the magistrates at Pontypridd and Neath. These difficulties were now partly removed, and it was much easier to approach them now than it had been in years gone by. They used to tell them they sat in court to administer justice, but very often when he went before them his case would depend entirely on who would be sitting on the bench. If they were to administer the laws there ought not to be the slightest concern as to who would or would not be sitting on the bench. (Cheers.) Since that time, however, he was very glad to see that a great change had taken place, the temper- ance party now had the sympathy of the bench, and it would be a much easier matter for the next deputation to meet the magistrates than it had been to their predecessors. He went on to say that during eighteen years twenty-five lodges of Ivorites in Pontypridd and district had spent in public-houses the largo sum of £3,300, chiefly for beer and spirits supplied during the meetings. (Shame.)—Mr. Morgan Weekes and the Rev. P. H. James having supported the resolution, it was put to the meeting and carried unanimously. Rev. B. Davies. of Pontypridd, then proposed the following resolution :— That this meeting of the inhabitants of Pontypridd and llhondda Valleys deeply regrets to know that Dr. L. Wayne Morgan, J.P., of Hafoil, near Pontypridd, who has not been in the habit of interesting himself ill magisterial work, has, in his own house, contrary tll the custom of the local licensing bench, and after being officially requested hy the said helle]1 not to entertain 1\p]llk:.tions for occasional licenses In open court, granted for the second time all occasional licence for the People's Park, Pontypridd, the same having been previously refused when appliell for ill open court and opposed hy the representatives of the Christian community. Tills JIIcetlllg strongly c'onelcmn5 Dr. :\1or,:all'5 action as unworthy of U ma- gistrate in thus making void tile constitutional proceedings of his brother magistrates and furtherina- the interests of private speculations at the expense of the public weal that a copy of the foregoing resolution be sent to ttie Home Secretary and Dr. Morgan. It did not require a speech to convince them of the indiscretion of Dr. Morgan, who was a very nice man and quite a gentleman in other matters. In this [ one thing he had no doubt been given to understand that he was acting within the scope of his legal rights, but he had infringed his moral rights. There were several Acts of Parliament similar to the Tithe Acts at present which were carried out and administered by the magistrates, but it behoved them as Christians to ask if the laws were right. (Cheers.) He had thought that when Dr. Morgan granted the license the first time he did so from want of consideration, but when he did so the second time it was an insult to his brother magistrates. Public opinion, as had been said, had influenced the minds of the sitting magistrates, and' sooner or later it must influence Dr. Morgan. (Cheers.)—Mr. W. James, Dinas, an old servant of Dr. Morgan, seconded the resolution. The Rev. L. Ton Evans, Cadoxton, supported the resolution, and said he hud come as a youn"- beginner from the Barry district to learn'some'- thing from old veterans in the Rhondda. He had been born in a Rhondda public-house, but h3 had for 15 years been moving in the temperance cause. Having briefly referred to the good work done by the South Wales Star, he proceeded to narrate his experiences in the Penarth police-court in the cause of temperance. Having complimented the Rhondda people on the activity shown by their Rechibite clubs and Good Templar Lodges, he went on to say that one editor had told him at a temperance meeting held in Barry district last winter, You are perfectly right in what you are doing, but it would not do to give full reports of your temperance meetings for it would not pay. We, as editors, cater for the majority of the people." The rev. gentleman concluded by wish- ing every prosperity to temperance cause in the Rhondda, and resumed his seat. amid loud ap- plause.—The resolution was then put to the meet- ing and carried unanimously. Mr. W. Williams (Meton) then proposed That this conference begs to appeal to the newspaper proprietors of South Wales for fuller and better temperance information.—-Rev. Robert Roberts seconded, and asked whether the proprietors of the South Wales newspapers obtained more support from the drunkards of the district than from the friends of temperance. He had watched the columns of the South )| ulex Da/IAr.v.v for nearly fifteen years, and had noticed that more space was always given to police reports, murders, &c.. than to temperance meetings, which had been sorely neglected and only partly reported.— Rey. B. Davies, original proprietor of the Pontypridd Chronicle, said that the papers had always given full reports of the blue ribbon meetings at Ponty- pridd, and that the full reports which had appeared in the Chronicle had been copied into other papers. (Hear, hear.) He did not believe in the assertion made that reports of temperance meet- ings did not pay. He would, however, ask how many of the temperance people had given notice of their meetings to the representatives of the press.-Rev. Ton Evans replied, and said that the editor he had referred to had been in the employ of the previous speaker, and he only told the meeting what the editor had told him. He also desired to state that he was requested more than once by the same gentleman to write a letter with reference to the worshipping people of Cadoxton. and in that letter he stated the facts which, in his opinion, accounted for the people not attending places of worship, and, amongst others, the late hours the public-houses were kept open, and the lateness of the grocers and others in. closing their shops on Saturday night. The editor of that paper, who was so anxious for the worship- ping public, actually left out all reference to the drink traffic. (Shamed—Mr. D. Jenkins. Hopkins- town, asked whether the Welsh or English papers were guilty of leaving out temperance re- ports .'—Mr. Gwilym Hughes (South Wale« Daily Xen%t), whose rising was the signal for loud cheering. in the course of a courageous reply to the assertions of the Rev. Robert Roberts, said there was no condemnation in the resolution itself, but the seconder of the resolution had made a grave charge, and he would ask him to stick to facts and not to exaggerate. During the four years he had represented the Daily Ar</•.>• in that locality he had not missed a single temperance conference—(cheers)—and he challenged Mr. Roberts, who was a comparative stranger to him, to say they had not been fully reported. (Cheers.) There were athletic sports and other amusements in the valley that day. yet three reporters were in their meeting, and it Was most unjust to accuse them of neglecting temper- ance meetings. (Cheers.)—Rev. Robert Roberts, in reply, said he refused the challenge, and pro- ceeding said he did not charge the newspapers with neglecting to report, but of giving more space to other matters, such as sports. than to tem- perance affairs -The resolution was then put, and carried. On the motion of the Rev. J. Williams Havod, seconded by Mr. Morgan Weekes. and sun- ported bv Mr. Anthony Dew. it was resolved to asked colliery managers in the Rhondda Valleys, when paying wages, to provide sufficient changeiso as to do away with the necessity for the workmen to enter public-houses for that pnrpose.-The end V°teS °f tlliluks brcmght the meeting to an

The Clerk reported that only two tenders had been received for the carrying out of the above work. On the motion of Mr. Matthews the tender of Messrs. Howell Williams and William Jenkins for £ 80 was accepted, the work to he completed by 1st September. t0 b° ABEP.IVENFIG DRAINAGE SCHEME. The Chairman inquired if the necessary notices had been issued. TIle Clerk replied that they were not. The Bridgend Local Board were not quite prepared.—The Chairman said he had just laid his hand on a letter from Mr. T. J. Huo-hes in which he urged the authority to proceed with- out delay, and that the Local Board were quite ready to go on.-Mr. Matthews considered that it was useless to aelav the matter any further. They should proceed to get an inquiry as early as possible. If the Bridgend Local Board oould not keep pace with them they must stay behind. They could proceed with the scheme in their district, and if a second enquiry was necessary, the onus would rest on the Bridg- 'pood Board. He would therefore propose that the Clerk take steps to hold an enquiry as- 'ble. 'rhe -'Ierl soon as possiblc.-The Clerk pointed out that the Authority could do nothing until the Local Board proceeded. There would not be an outlet for their sewerage.—Mr. Matthews said the Brido-Cnd Local Board did their business in a very slovenly manner It was useless waiting for them. The Authority were ready and they could not proceed owing to- the dilatory conduct of the Local Board. Brid-end was noted for being behind the times. It had" not excelled in anything, and it was the same now -The Chairman suggested that it would be better to, send the plans to be examined by the Local Government Board.-)Ir..Matthews' motion not being seconded, it was not put to the vow. The Clerk stated that he did not think it was necessary to advertise the notices On of the Chairman, the Clerk S'SZ the necessary notices to the owners. WATER SUPPLY AT DOLA. The Surveyor reported that he had seen Mr. J- Blandy Jenkins m reference to the above supply, and Mr. Jenkins informed him that it w J not necessary for the Authority to procure the water supply, as he was prepared to do the same himself. WELL AT AP-EPTHYN. The Surveyor reported that he had inspected the well near the Great. House, Aberthyn. in company with the guardian, and-found it in a bad condition open to every pollution. He recommended that a wall be built around the well and that pipes be TLtr°nVne 10 tlle the road. a distance ?f42JarTdlat a cost of °a th* motion of -vii. x. John, it was resolved that the work be proceeded with in accordance with the recom- mendation of the Surveyor, at a cost not ex- ceeding £ 5. THS CLOSING or DAY SCHOOLS. The Clerk stated, in reply to the Chairman, that he did not believe the authority had any power to close the schocs: out he had sought the advice of the Local Government Board on the matter.. They accordingly forivarded certain clauses of the Education Acts. wherein it was stated that the command to close a certain school should proceed from the authority and not from the medical officer, as had been the case in reference to the Roman Catholic School at Aberkenfi" —The Chairman enquired if the fever was still prevalent at Aberkenfig, and if the other school was still closed ;-The Medical Officer stated that scarlet fever was still prevalent.—Mr. Matthews considered there had been some bungling in this matter. A medical man had informed him that the fever was better m the village and the Tondu Works school was still closed, but it was intended to open the school on Monday next.-Colonel Warlow enquired of the medical officer if it was still necessary to close the schools.—The MedicalL Officer replied that as scarlet fever was still rao-ing in the locality, the schools should be still closed. On the motion of Colonel Warlow, it was resolved that the clerk issue notices to the managers of St. Roberts School, Aberkenfig. and Tondu Works School, to close the schools for a fortnight from Monday next-There was no other business of public importance.

THE ANCIENT BENEFIT FRIENDLY…
THE ANCIENT BENEFIT FRIENDLY SOCIETY. ANNUAL DINNER OF THE CADOXTON ROYAL LODGE. ADDRESS BY SIR MORGAN MORGAN. MR. LEWIS LEWIS ON THE TRADE OF BARRY. SUCCESSFUL PROCEEDINGS. The second anniversary of the Cadoxton Royal Lodge of the Ancient Benefit Friendly Society was celebrated at Cadoxton, Barry, on Monday in a highly-successful manner. The members were astir during the early portion of the afternoon, and met at their headquarters, the Royal Hotel. After forming into procession, they marched, headed by the Cadoxton Brass Band, under the leadership of Mr. T. Buckler, and bearers carrying a very handsome banner of the order, to Cadoxton Parish Church where a short service was held. Owing to indisposition the esteemed rector, the Rev. E. Morris, could not attend, in consequence of which the Rev. A. T. Couch, curate, officiated, and delivered an appropriate discourse. During the afternoon the streets of Cadoxton were paraded by the members, the band playing lively tunes, and the procession also proceeded to Barry aud back. The annual dinner took place at the Royal Hotel in the evening, when nearly a hun- dren members and friends sat down to a capital repast, and which was served in HostJ. J. Williams's v^ry best style. Sir Morgan Morgan, the Conserva- tive candidate for the Southern Division of Gla- morganshire, presided, and the vice chairmen Messrs. David Shaw and — Read (Grand Master of the Order). Amongst the numerous company were the Rev. A. T. Couch, curate Mr. R. G. Morris, Cadoxton Grammar School Mr. B. G. Davies. solicitor Dr. Edward Treharne. medical officer of the lodge; B. Lewis, Palmers- town Lewis Lewis, B. T. Pomeroy. A. Found, T. Ewebank, Rees Williams (secretary). J. H. Davies. H. L. Jones (registrar). J. McGill (King William IV. Hotel). J.J. Williams, A. Williams, J. Spickett, D. W. Thomas, W. Llewellyn Williams and Herbert Morgan (Smith. U ale* Star), J. R. Llewellyn (Harry Dock Xrus), J. A. Owen (architect), H. Burbidge, Rees Jones, Charles Masters, T. Morgan, J. Jones. Brown, E. Jenkins, J. H. Nelmes, Brunt. D. Love, Whittle, cICc., cICc. The Rev. A. T. Couch said grace, and returned thanks. The' Chairman gave the Queen and Royal Family." which was enthusiastically drunk. The Chairman then proposed the toast of The Clergy and Ministers of all Denominations," and said he was sorry they had not more of them amongst them that evening, but he was sure they were engaged in work equally as good. He believed that the good that the friendly societies did was very great in this country, and thought they deserved the support of every body, more especially ministers of religion. The clergy and ministers worked very hard, and it was their duty to encourage them in every way, because they deserved it. (Hear, hear.) He was sorry that the rector was not present with them that evening, but they had Mr. Couch with them, and he coupled his name with the toast with much pleasure. (Ap- plause.) Rev. A. T. Couch, who was very heartily received, returned thanks, but expressed regret that the indisposition of the rector had prevented him from being present to respond to the toast. Their chairman had said that the clergy and the minis- ters were very good men, because they told the people what they ought to do. There was an old saying of a minister, Do not do as you see me do, but do as I tell yon," but he (the speaker) believed that. notwithstanding the fact that in common with other people they had the same difficulties and the same temptations to strive against, the clergy and ministers should set the good example, which was much better than pre- cept. and upon which it would he safe for the people to follow. (Hear, hear.) Proceeding, the rev. gentleman stated that that was the first time he had spoke publicly at such a gathering, and he supposed that that must be regarded as his maiden speech. (Laughter and applause). He liked the place very much, and he liked to work amongst them. (Applause.) He could say too that he had not the slightest ill-feeling towards the ministers on the contrary, he found it very easy to work with them, and he hoped the feeling was reciprocated. (Applause.) In conclusion, he thanked them for the way in which they had drunk that toast. (Applause.) Mr. A. Found proposed Success to the Cadox- ton Royal Lodge." (Applause.) He complimented the lodge upon its prosperous career, and hoped it would continue. Referring to the National Pen- sion Scheme, he disagreed with Parliamentary interference, and said nothing .would do the people good unless they helped themselves. (Sir Morgan Morgan Quite right.) The toast was drunk with enthusiasm. Mr. Rees Williams, secretary of the lodge, responded, and proceeded to adduce figures to illustrate the progress the lodge had made. He said that during last year they received £ 9!} l)s. Od. into the sick and funeral fund, and out of that they paid to sick members, £BO ">s. 7d. They paid to the general sick funeral fund, £ 28 odd. leaving a balance in| that fund of £ 41 3S. 4d. (Applause.) In the management fund they received £25 14s., and the total expense was £24 2s. 6d., leavinga balance of £ Ills. 8d. The total income during last year therefore was £ 149 17s. 2d., and the to tal expenditure was CI06 16s. 10d.. the balance to v- he' credit of the lodge being therefore ,I,; 4:1 Os. 4d. (Applause.) During the six months of the present year they had received £97 6s. 81., and they had paid in sick claims, £23 4s. 3d., and to the sick and funeral fund £16. During this period, too, they had paid the sum of M9 owing to two deaths. In the management fund and medical fees they had expended £25, making a total expenditure of £72 6s. 7d., leaving a balance of £25..With the balance of £43 Os. 4d. from last year, the total balance therefore amounted to £68 Os. 4d. (Cheers.) At the end of last year they had 110 good members that were entitled to all benefits of the society, but he was sorry to say that there were a large number who were out of compliance. During this year they had made nine new members, and five had been transferred from other lodges. He said that last year they had three honorary members—viz. Dr. Treharne, Mr. David Williams and Mr. David Shaw—(applause)—but it was his pleasing duty to announce that night four ad- ditional ones—viz. Sir Morgan Morgan (cheers) Mr. L. W. Jones. Mr. Lewis Lews, and Mr. B. G. Davies. (Applause.) Mi. B. G. Davies, in eulogistic terms, cave "The Health of Sir Morgan Morgan." (Cheers.) He said they all knew that Sir Morgan was a Welshman, and that he was proud of his race He belonged to the same craft as the speaker did. but the difference was that Sir Morgan had made a fortune by it, while he had hardly com- menced yet. (Laughter.) Their chairman took a great interest in friendly societies, and was a member of at least thirty lodges. (Applause.) It might be interesting to some of them to know that Sir Morgan was the first mayor who protested against the mayors of Wales not being included in the toast of the mayors at the Lord Mayor's ban- quet in London, and ever since then such a toast had been included. (Hear, hear.) He might also tell them that Sir Morgan Morgan having made a competence in the profession to which he belonged was now turning his attention to the thorny path of politics. It was quite another matter whether he would succeed there or not. They would have to decide that, and in a measurable distance of time too. (Hear, hear.) But without entering into politics he could tell them that Sir Morgan would fight like a man, and if he would be defeated it would be in a noble way (Hear, hear.) In conclusion he charged them to fill their glasses and drink a bumper to their noble chairman, Sir Morgan Morgan. (Cheers.) Dr. Treharne called for three cheers for Sir Morgan, which were given, as well as three for Lady Morgan. Sir Morgan Mergan. on rising to reply, received a hearty reception. He thanked them cordially for the way in which they had received the toast and also to Mr. Davies for the very flattering way in which he had proposed it. Mr. Davies had been too complimentary. (" No, no.") It was true that they were members of the same profession and although lawyers did not always agree. Mr. Davies and himself agreed there that night. (Hear hear.) The object of that gathering was to meet together as members of a friendly society, and as such he thought they were doing a great'deal of good. Apart from a friendly society, he thought they did good because they tended to create friendships and bring people together. They cre- ated an interchange of ideas between man and man. (Hear, hear.) The friendly societies in this country were a great power of strength for good. They were the means of giving help and comfort to i many a man when he was in distress or ill-health. He could not conceive anything more beneficial than that. Suppose for one moment there were no benefit societies in the country. The effect would be something tremendous. He was sure the public did not sufficiently appreciate the benefits which friendly societies had upon the community. If they did they would rally round them more. But by means of the press especially these friendly societies were getting better known. (Hear, hear.) He thought there was a better time in store for such institutions than there had been in the past. Some-time ago a scheme was proposed in fact, n number of people brought forward different schemes as to how they should be encouraged. One advocated a kind of State control. At the Odd- fellows' meetings at Salisbury a couple of months ago the subject was discussed verv freely and minutely. As a result the Oddfellows, who were a very powerful and influential body, discouraged any interference on the part of the State with friendly societies. He thought they were right, too. He thought friendly societies should be allowed to manage their own affairs. Bue what he wished to see was that all their funds were properly protected-(hear. hear)—because it was exceedingly hard for men to pay into a lodge for ten or fifteen years and then to find that the funds were all gone. That had happened in the past. and it had happened a good many times too often. He believed such a thing could not now happen, because friendly societies were too careful in having their accounts properly audited and their funds properly invested. After dealing with various other aspects of the question he said he was glad to hear that the lodge was so prosperous. (Hear, hear.) He sincerely hoped that such pros- perity would continue next year if that was so they would start on a firm foundation. He was a strong believer in a society keeping a good reserve fund. He belonged to some societies where the surplus was divided annually, but he preferred the other way. He thought it much better for a society to have something substantial ready in case of an epidemic of some sort. Ho thanked them for inviting him to be present that night, and he again wished their lodge every prosperity. He hoped next year they would have as equally enthusiastic a gathering, and that their secretary would read as satisfactory a report as he had that night. (Cheers.) Mr. R. G. Morris then took the chair. Sir Morgan Morgan having to leave to catch a train, and pro- posed appropriate terms the health of Mr. Mead, the grand master of the society. Mr. Mead, who was loudly applauded, said as he had to leave to catch the Cardiff train there was not time to refer to the rapid advancement the society generally was making. He might just say that he had visited four lodges during the past month, and he had enrolled 111 new members of the society. The Ancient Friendly Benefit Society was composed upon sound principles. Their under- lying principle was to do unto others as they would others should do unto them. (Loud ap- plause.) Brother Whittle proposed the toast of the "Kindred Societies." (Loud applause.) Mr. T. Ewebank, secretary of the Barry Dock lodge of the Grand United Order of Oddfellows, returned thanks in a lengthy speech, and said the society he represented were always willing to ex- tend the hand of good fellowship and brotherly love to other friendly societies. (Applause.) Mr. David Shaw gave The Trade of the District "—(cheers)—and referred to the marvel- lous growth the district had undergone in recent years. He attributed this to Barry Dock. They were about to have another dock—(cheers)—and when it was constructed it would very materially increase the prosperity of the district. Of course large works would follow, and he was in a position to state that a large London syndicate were prepared to expend a vast amount of money in the district. (Applause.) He believed the day was not far distant when Barry would be a second Cardiff. (Cheers.) He regretted to observe the attitude of antagonism exhibited by the Local Board towards the Barry Company in referrence to their new road. WTith all sincerity he believed it was very bad feeling for the Board to go against the Company as they did. (Hear. hear.) Mr. Lewis Lewis in responding forcibly instanced the growth of the district. He pointed out that the Llynvi. Ogmore, and Garw coalfields were much larger than those of the Rhondda Valley, and they were barely touched yet. The natural outlet for that coal would, if the Vale of Glamorgan Rail- way were constructed, be at Barry—(cheers)— consequently, they would see how important it was to the district that that line should be made as soon as possible. It was sure to be constructed. (Hear, hear.) They would agree with him that there was a grind future for the exporting of coal at Barry Dock. In conclusion, he expressed the hope that the trade of the district would be as prosperous during next 40 years as it had been during the past four years. (Cheers.) Several other toasts followed, including The Medical Officer of the Lodge, Dr. Treharne," pro- posed by Mr. J. H. Davies The Visitors," proposed by Brother Love, and responded to by Mr. L. W. Jones (South Wales Union Bank); "The Press," proposed in eulogistic terms by the chair- man. and responded to by Messrs. W. LI. Williams (South, Wale# Star) and J. R. Llewellyn (Barry Dock Xctrx) "The Host and Hostess," responded to by Mr. J. J. Williams amI" The Chairman," proposed by Dr. Treharne, and responded to by Mr. R. G. Morris. The proceedings, which were very enjoyable and harmonious throughout, concluded with the singing of the National Anthem. During the evening songs were sung by the following gentle- men :—Messrs. B. G. Davies, J. J. Williams, H. Burbidge, J. H. Nelmes, A. Found, — Whittle, D. W. Thomas, Rees Williams, a.nd Alfred Williams. Messrs. Rees Jones, printer, and J. A. Owen, architect, kindly acted as accompanists, and per- formed their duties very efficiently.
SOUTH WALES EtfGINEMEN'SI…
SOUTH WALES EtfGINEMEN'S ASSOCIATION. The monthly meeting of the Rhondda Branch of South Wales and Monmouthshire Enginemen. Stokers, and Outside Fitters' Association was held on Monday last at the White Hart Hotel, Ponty- pridd, Mr. Evan Davies, Treorky. in the chair. There was a fairly representative attendance. Con- tributions having been received, a complaint was made that at some of the collieries, especially in Ferndale, part of the wages of enginemen and stokers were stopped for defraying the expenses of other organisations than their own, and a re- solution was passed condemning the action. The chairman (Mr. Evan Davies) was elected president for the next half-year, and the auditors were re-appointed. The secretary (Mr. George Jones), and the delegates submitted their reports of the conference held at Cardiff on Thursday last. and it was adopted. Several addresses were delivered, some of the members speaking of the good work which had been done during the past quarter in bringing about in such an amicable manner the reduction in the working hours. A discussion then arose in reference to the case in dispute at the Maritime Colliery which, it had been reported, had been settled. It o/Iw transpired, however, that after the new arrangements had been in force for a few weeks, one of the men received a notice to leave. and another in consequence had resigned. A re- solution was eventually passed condemning the action of the manager, and calling upon all trades' unionists to keep away from the Maritime until the matter had been explained.
LLWYNYPIA SPORTS. On Monday last (Mabon's Day) Athletic Sports were held at the Llwynypia Recreation Grounds under the auspices of the Llwynypia and Tony- pandy Athletic Club. The dull heavy sky, which in the morning threatened to deluge the whole valley with rain, cleared off before mid-day, and it is estimated that the number of spectators present was fully 5,000. The entries, too, were exceptionally large and some exiting competitions were witnessed. The ground was in a splendid condition and the vast crowd present fully enjoyed their holiday.—Dr. W. W. David, Messrs. W.'W. Wood, W. Pritchard, and J. Gilmour acted as judges, the committee of the sports as handi- cappers, Mr. James Phillips. solicitor, Pontypridd, as starter, and Mr. R.
