A special meeting of the Bridgend School Board was held on f riuay hist for the purpose of initiating a. movement towards the institution of technical educa- tion evening classes during the coming winter months, Mr. T. fetockwood (chairman) presided. The names of several lile.d. gentlemen were submitted, and the clerk was deputed to write asking them to serve on a committee t<» be formed of which the members of the Board will provide the nucleus. It is to be hoped the movement will be heartily taken up in the town ACCIDKNT.—On Saturday morning last an unfor- tunate accident occurred at Messrs. Shepherd and Sons, Ogmore Foundry, whereby a young man named Thomas Collins, living at Quarella, sustained severe injuries to his hand, besides losing two of his fingers. It appearsjthat Collins, whilst working near the large steam hammer got his hand underneath, and failing to withdraw it in time the hammer descended with the result that his hand was terribly crushed. Medical attendance was at once summoned, and the injured hand is progressing favourably under skilful streat- 4iK'nt,
GILFACH GOCH. TEA PARTY.—On Wednesday, the ten, party given to the children of the Dinas Main Board School by E. D. Evans. Esq., Heolgarrig, Merthyr Tydlil, on his attaining his majority, took place. Whilst the good thinsrs for the feast were being prepared by Airs Jones, Brynmawr, Mrs. Thomas, and Mrs. Dayies, the children perambulated Evanstown with their banners. Son^s were sung c-.i route. Returning to school, the children fell to with a will and did ample justice to the cake and tea. Mrs. Christmas Evans. Miss Jones, and the young squire honoured the children and teachers with their prosence, thus showing the interest taken in the children of the Dinas Main workmen by the idcolgarrig family. After tea nuts and sweets were distributed to each child, and at night a concert was held. ably presided over by Mr. Enoch Jones, member of the School Board. In his address J'Sr.es dwelt ur.or.the New Co Ie, Free Education, and the necessity* of regular attendance. He also took the opportunity of publicly congratulating Mr. Cannitf and his tLachers on the excellent results at- tained by the scholars in their examinations. Ap- nendod is the programme :—Address, chairman song, "Under the rustic bridge, Mr. S. Evans; song, Mr S. Thomas: comic song, Mr. Mulcahy, Esq." (encored). Mr. T. Cosslett; song. "Yr Eryn," Miss Evans (Hos Afon): comic song. ''Oh! Let it be soon" (encored), Mr. Tom Jones; song, The Dairymaid," Miss Minnie Jenkins; recitation, Mr. John Pugh; song, Llythvr fy mam," Mr. Willie Rees recitation, Mr. D. Hees. Votes of thanks were passed to the ladies for presiding at the tables, to the chairman for presiding, and the meeting broke up with ringing cheers for Mr. Evans and singing of "Hen wlad fy Nhadau." FATAL ACCIDENT.—On Thursday last, an accident, attended bv instantaneously fatal results, befel a poor man named Charles Parry, while he was engaged in dismantling an engine at the Glamorgan Coal Com- pany's new shaft. The poor feliow v as struck by a falling mass of brickwork weighing several cwts. whiie°entering the engine-house, and sustained a f -aciured skull, besides being otherwise injured. On Monday Mr. Grover, coroner, held an inquest, when a verdict of Accidental death" was returned. De- ceased leaves a widow and twelve children to mourn their loss. Great sympathy is felt for them in their sad bereavement. LLANDAFF CHCKCII CHORAL ASSOCIATION.— The Gilfach Church Choir attended the Choral Fes i- val at the Parish Church, Ystrad, on Monday. The party were conveyed in brakes, and were accompanied by the Rev. T. Tissington. The festival proved a splendid musical success, the anthems being particu- larly well rendered. An eloquent sermon was preached bv the Rev. D. Banks Williams, vicar of Cwmavon, to a congregation which completely filled the beautiful edifice.
KEN FIG HILL. CONSECRATION.—The recently completed Church of St. Theodore's, in the mining district of Kenfig Hill, in the parish of Tythegeton, near B idgend, was consecrated on Tuesday by the Lord Bishop of the diocese. The pretty little edifice, which stands on the breast of the slope overlooking the village, owes its appearance chiefly to the liberality of Miss Olive Talbot. Mr Halliday is the designer. The seating accommodation is 200. Kenfiig lull is joined to the parish of Newcastle. The curate in charge is the Rev. J. Bangor Davies, and the vicar of the parish is the Rev. D. Davies, M.A., who was recently appointed from St. John's, Cardiff. The success of the cause here is chiefly due to the energy of the Rev. Bangor Davies. who has thrown his whole heart into the work. Miss Olive Talbot has further given a beautiful three- light stained glass east window, by Burlisson and Grylls, in memory of her brother, the late Mr. Theodore Talbot. On Tuesday, consecration day, the village was gaily decorated for the occasion. The Bishop was attended by the Revs. S. H. F. Nicholl (chaplain), C. R. Knight, R. D. and F. W. Edmondes (Coity), Mr. J. E. Ollivant (registrar), and Mr. F. J. Smith (assistant registrar). There was a large number of clergy pre- sent. The Bishop, attended by officers and chaplain, was received at the west door by the clergy and church- warden (Mr. J. P. Edwards), and the petition was read by tl J assistant registrar, praying that he would con- secrate the church according to the prayer therein con- tained. Afterwards his lordship signified his consent, the procession was then formed towards the Communion table, each repeating Psalm xxiv. The church service was read by the Rev. Bangor Davies, and the lessons by the Rev. C. R. Knight. The latter and the Rev. F. W. Edmondes read the Collect and the Epistle respectively. The sermon was preached by the Rev. F. W. Edmondes, taking his text from 1 Corinthians xi.. 9. A first-class luncceon was provided in the schoolroom. In the afternoon, at the sole expense of Miss Olive Talbot, a treat was given to the church children, when over 250 pariook of tea. The Rev. H. Lewis, St. Bride's Minor, preached a Welsh sermon in the evending.
OGMORE VALLEY. HALF-YEARLY MEETINGS. — On Sunday and Monday, Bethania Independent Church held their half-yearly meetings, when powerful sermons were preached by the Rev. Mr. Jones, B.A., Beecon, and Mr. T. G. Jenkins, Llwynpia. A COLLIERY DROWNED.—About twelve months ago tI2 Aber Colliery, Tynewydd, was drowned out. A powerful electric pump was set up to pump the water out, and it was very near all got out when last week the water again broke in anew and drowned out the wh)lo colliery. The stopping of this colliery will be a great loss to the place, inasmuch as there is no place opening in the valley to give employment to the men that will be thrown out of employment. A DANGEROUS BCLL AT LARGE.—Several per- sons who are perforced to cross the mountain between this and the Garw Valley complain of a savage bull being allowed in a field through which there is a public thoroughfare, near Pantynawel Farm. About a fortnight ago an old woman just escaped from the beast, and since that time several complaints have been heard from various persons, one man in particular characterising it as a terror to the whole neighbour- hood. It is to be hoped that some forcible influence will be brought to bear upon the farmer unless he keeps the animal properly quartered, so as to be pre- vented endangering public safety. If not, it is generally feared that some serious results may accrue, as the pathway at times is much used by aged persons. —Com.
XKtTH. EXHIBITIOX.—A highly interesting and instructive exhibition of pictures, curios, mechanical models, and scientific apparatus was opened at the Gwyn-hall, Neath, by Mr. J. C. Fowler, Swansea, on Monday afternoon. The exhibition has been arranged under the auspices of the Neath Mechanics' Institute Science and Art Classes, and with the laudable object of arousing widespread interest in the branches of study there pursued. The Mayor of Neath (Mr. W. B. Trick) presided over the opening proceedings, and amongst those who were present were Alderman H. P. Charles and Mrs. Charles, Councillor J. B. Davies, Councillor Edward Davies and Mrs. Davies, Arch- deacon Griffiths and Mrs. Griffiths, the Rev. A. F. Mills, the Rev. Henry Williams, the Rev. E. Bulstrode Pryce, B.A., the Rev. Father D'Hurst, Mrs. Gwyn (Dyffryn), Mr. F. J. Gibbins and Mrs. Gibbins, Mrs. Isaac Morgan (The Hill), the Misses Bevan (Cadox- ton), and Miss Place.
BRIDGEND LOCAL BOARD. The annual meeting of the above Board was held on Tuesday evening at the Board-room, Town-hall Chambers, Bridgend, Mr. LI. Wallington presiding.— The Finance Committee reported that there was an overdraft at the bank of £127 13s. 7d.—Plans for a new drill-hall were received, but the passing of them was deferred until they had been examined by the su.rveyor.-The Building, Paving, and Lighting Com- mittee recommended that ten loads of old chandelling be carted from Llynvi-street b be used at New- castle hill.—This was agreed to.—Mr. Michael Davies moved that steps should he taken to remove the encroachments of Messrs. Evan Llewellyn, Wm. Elias, T. T. Lewis, and Miss Talbot within two months.—The resolution was carried, an amendment of Mr. Powell finding no seconder.—A rate of ls. 3d. in the .6 was ordered to be made.—The Clerk suggested that the Board should approach the Local Government Board as €0 whether they would. consent to a by-law for owners to get cesspools cleaned them- selves, such as was in vogue in the other Local Board districts.-This was.the principal bU5iness;.
BRYNMENIN BITS. Pity poor Peaceful Paul He has been so up- set by this, that, and the other that he has found it impossible to fulfil his promise of visiting Pwllandreas (or, as some call it. Pwll-andras) and the other places. What has upset me, you ask Well, the first thing was this. I was returning home from work in the early hours of the morning, and I heard a noise in a certain railway carriage, and the window was smashed. No doubt, it was a ghost, and I ran home as fast as I could. Then I met a young lady, but she wouldn't speak to me, thinking that I had alluded to her in your valuable journal. But, of course, it,wasn't her it was somebody else I was talking about. After that I saw men entering the temple of Bacchus when returning from work early in the morning, instead of going home to their families, as they should, and my heart was grieved thereat. I saw parents who were too careless about their chil- dren, and did not keep them under good discipline at home, and some of these were people who ought to know better. The result is that the conduct of many of the children is disgraceful. I would be more satisfied, too, if the police-constable were to visit the railway crossing sometimes at night. I know his beat is a. very long one, but perhaps he can turn up there now and then, and I am sure it would be very useful if he did. Another thing that upset me was the fact that I went on my holidays for a few days and now that I am back, and feel fit for work, there are certain widows always pestering me. For be it known to all that a presentable man is PEACEFUL PAUL.
THE LIBERAL CLUB.—We are pleased to find that the committee of the Pontypildd Liberal Club have lately purchased a large quantity of books to be kept in the library for the use of members.
PONTYPRIDD. SCIENCE AND ART CLASSES.—On Monday even- ing last the first of a series of science and art classes were commence:1 at the Free Library. These ciassas are connected with the Technical Education Com- mittee for the county of Glamorgan. The subjects to be taught are :—Drawing (freehand, model and pers- pective) mathematics and practical geometry, by Mr J. D. Jone", Mill-5treet Schools; sound, light and heat, and magnetism, by Mr. Rhys H. Morgan, M.A. the principles of mining, by Mr. Henry Davies, Tre- hanis shorthand, by Mr. P. W. Hogg and machine construction and drawing* by Mr. Arthur Thomas. Coedpenmaen. A continual course of lessons will also he gii'cii Curing the session by one of the travel- ling teachers appointed by the Glamorgan Technical Instruction Committee, and lessons on the principles of mining and geology or mechanical engineering; and we understand that the subjects embraced are amongst :h05e which candidates for free studentships and maintenance scholarships at the Cardiff Uni- versity, will have to study. Mr. D. Roberts Rosser, the secretary, will be pleased to give any information to intending students. A PICNIC TO PONTSARN.—On Thursday after- noon last about 26 of the members of the English Congregational Guild went for a picnic to the picturesque village of Pontsarn. The party started from Pontypridd Station about two o'clock, and 8.lTived at their destination in about an huur after- wards. The party then dispersed, each one following his or her own inclination, some visited the noted caves, others strolled about the lake whilst other friends visited the quaint old Church. However, they all met around the festive board in the long room of the Pontsarn Hotel, where thanks to the foresight of Mr. T. S. Jones, in whose hands the arrangemends lay, Mrs. Jones and Miss Arnott, who presided at the tables, an excellent meal was thoroughly enjoyed. The remainder of the evening was spent in innocent mirthful games, after which most of the party returned home with the eight 0' clock train. whilst the remainder walked to Merthyr to catch the last. ACCIDENT.—On Friday last a sad accident befel an old lady named Mrs. Games, the mother-in-law of Mr. Morgan Weeks, miners' agent. It appears that Mrs. Games was returning from Aberdare with her little grandchild, and on arriving at the Aberdare Junction, whilst putting the little child in the train she fell on the platform and dislocated her thigh. She was taken home immediately where medical attend- ance was obtained. We are glad to be able to state that Mrs. Games is in a fair way to recovery. A POLICEMAN POISONED. — Considerable sensa- tion was caused in the town on Tuesday last by a ru- mour which went abroad that Police-constable Jones had taken poison in mistake for medicine, and had died from its efforts. The rumour was, however, exag- gerated, for the facts were as follows. The officer was undergoing a course of medical treatment, and mixed for himself a dose of Turkey rhubarb and bi- carbonate of soda. His wife handed him a small packet of white powder, which she Supposed was bi- carbonate of soda, and this he mixed with the medi- cine and drank. However, he felt a giddy sensation and his stomach swelled considerably. Then, believ- ing that something was wrong, he looked at the label of the packet, and found 011 it the word "Poison," and, with remarkable presence of mind, he rushed off ti the residence of Dr. Howard Davies. who admin- istered a few doses of a powerful emetic, which soon relieved him, and the officer is now all right, but we understand that but for the timely aid of the doctor he would have succumbed.
MOUNTAIN ASH. INQUEST.—On Saturday morning Mr. R. J. Rhys, coroner, and a jury held an inquest touching the death of Stephen Jenkins, aged 40, residing at 18, Cliff- street, Mountain Ash, who died from the effects of injuries received on Tuesday last by a fall of stone whilst at work in the Deep Duffryn Colliery. A ver- dict of "Accidental death" was returned. THE FREE LIBRARY.—About two hundred vol- umes of books, chiefly of fiction, and written by standard authors, such as Dickens, Lytton, and Scott, have just been added to the lending department of the Pontypridd Free Library, as well as a number of good poetical books and juvenile literature, and Mr. G. Hughes, the energetic librarian, is now busily en- gaged arranging and classifying the same. Such a valuable acquisition will be greatly appreciated by the frequenters of the library. THE RHONDDA ROAD.—On Friday evening last a meeting of the owners of property abutting on the Rhondda-road was held at the Rhondda Chapel Vestry Room, Mr. Aaron Cule presiding, for the purpose of discussing what steps to take with reference to the proposed private improvements to the road. Each owner had been supplied with a tracing, which had been prepared by Mr. Edward Rees, the surveyor of the Local Board, showing the amount of ground re- quired. Mr. W. Jones, Gellideg Villa, explained the object of the meeting, and after considerable discus- sion it was resolved that each owner should deal separately with the Board. DEMONSTRATION OF RECHABITES.—On Monday afternoon the members of the two local Rechahitc tents assembled at the -Dulfryn-street English Calvin- istic Methodist Chapel, and then paraded the town in processional order, the drum and fife band accompany- ing. Tea was partaken of in the same place of wor- ship, where, in the evening, a public meeting was held, at which the Rev. M. J. Mills, the pastor of the chapel and a member of the order, who is removing to Blaengarw, was presented with an emblem and sash. CHAMBER OF TRADE.—On Wednesday evening last the adjourned meeting of the Mountain Ash Chamber of Trade was held at the Temperance Hotel, The following gentlemen were elected officers for the ensuing year:—President, Mr. J. W. Jones; vice- president, Mr. W. Williams; treasurer, Mr. W. H. Jones secretary, Mr. D. T. Phillips, solicitor. It was decided to lIlclllorialise the Taff Vale Railway Com- pany for better accommodation at the railway station. A letter was also read from Mr. Henry Lambert, the general secretary of the Great Western Railway Com- pany, stating that the question of running an early tmin between Pontypool Road and Swansea would be considered at the next meeting of the directors. It was also decided that the Chamber should meet every alternate Wednesday. THE MARKET QUESTION. — A public meeting of ratepayers, convened at the instigation of Mr. W. P. Bowden, a member of the Local Hoard, was held at the Town-hall on Friday evening to consider the ad- visability of erecting a market-place at Mountain Ash. Mr. J. W. Jones occupied the chair. Mr. Bow- den, in introducing the subject, said thc matter oc- curred to him when the Local Board passed a resolu- tion prohibiting the sale of wares, &c., by hawkers near the Town-hall, and thereby preventing such free- dom in competition as would prove beneficial to the inhabitants, and further expressed his opinion that a market would, on those grounds, be advantageous. Mr. Beith, anotl er member of the Bo.tn1, spoke very strongly against such a proposal, and stated that it would be decidedly against the interests of the in- habitants of Ynysybwl, because of the Pontypridd market being so convenient, and it would be unfair to impose a further expenditure on the rates simply for the convenience of one part of the district. Sev- eral others spoke for and against, and the chairman's request for a vote resulted in eight voting against the erection of a market, the remainder voting for it. LOZAI, BOARD.—'The ordinary meeting of the Local Board of Health was held on Monday last, Mr. Morgan Morgan in the chair.—It was decided that the committee on the proposed extension of boundaries should attend the enquiry at Pontypridd on the fol- lowing day to watch the proceedings on behalf of the Board.—It was recognised that it would be desirable to allow more space for the Nonconformist^portion of the new cemetery at Ynysybwl than for the Church sec- tion, and it was also decided, on the motion of Mr. J. W. Jones, that no chapels be at present erected in the cemetery. The committee were also instructed to apportion the ground on the same plans as the Mountain Ash Cemetery had been divided, and for- ward the plans to the Home Secretary for approval.— The Medical Officer reported that during the past fortnight the number of notified cases of scarlet fever amounted to 32—an increase of 12 on the last repoet.- The Surveyor's and* Inspector of Nuisances' reports were read and <1<lopted. BOARD OF HEALTH.—The ordinary meeting of the Mountain Ash Board of Health was held on Monday. There were present—Mr. Morgan Morgan (in the chair), Mr. J. Long, Mr. L. Llewellyn, Mr. T. Jones, Mr. J. W. Jones, Mr. T. Edmunds, Mr. Green- how, Mr. Beith, Mr. Bowden, and Mr. Linton (clerk). The matter of the proposed improvement in the Pontycynon-road was reported upon by the Clerk and deferred. Sir Hussey Vivian, it appeared, coincided with the opinion of the committee of the County Council that half the expenses should first be sub- scribed. The committee acting in reference to the local boundaries was appointed to attend the inquiry to be held at Pontypridd on Tuesday. Regarding the proposed appointment of ground for consecrated and uneonsecratea burials at the new Ynysybwl Cemetery the desirability of allowing a larger spnno for the latter than for the former was recognised by the chit; rm:w and others. The excess Had been ex- perienced at Mountain Ash and elsewhere, the Chair- man remarking, "Churchmen don't die." It was moved by Mr. J. W. Jones that no chapels be erected, and that the committee locate the part of the ground to be formed as consecrated ground in the proportion in which consecrated ground has been used at'Moun- tain Ash to the proportion of unconseerate I ground. This was agreed to, the plans to be forwarded to the Home Secretary for his sanction.—Dr. E. P. Evans, medical officer, reported an increase in the number of scarlet fever C3.ses (kring the past fortni ght. '1' he total number was 32, an increase of 12 on the previous fortnight.
BLAENRHONDDA. EXPLOSION.—A little boy was on Thursday last seriously injured on the face by an explosion which occurred at the llla.el1rhondda colliery level, caused by d, lighted match coming in contact with some com- pressed powder. Dr. Owen, of Treherbert, is now attending ta the little fellow's injures.
FERXDALE. SCIENCE AND ART CLASSES.—A strong com- mittee was formed on Wednesday last for the purpose of starting evening classes in connection with the technical Instruction scheme for the county. The chair was occupied by Mr. Griffith Thomas, Mardy, Councillor Morgan Thomas having explained the nature of the classes, it was decided that they should be formed, and that Mr. D. Hannah be appointed chairman of the committee Mr. D. Price, secretary; and Mr. S. H. Williams, treasurer. It was also resolved to hold public meetings at Fern- dale, Tylorstown, and Mardy, in order to induce young people to join these classes. The subjects taught will be mining and theology, .mechanics, mathematics, drawing, electricity, and magnetism and in addition to a travelling teacher, the classes will be conducted by Mr. R. Thompson, Ferndale Mr. D. T. Thomas, Forth; and Mr. Parfitt, Mardy.
TREALAW. MINISTERIAL CALL. — We understand that the Rev. J. W. Lewis, the beloved pastor of the Bethlehem Baptist Chapel, Trealaw, has accepted a unanimous call f 'om the Calfaria Church, Morriston, and on Sun- day evening last gave notice to terminate his minis- terial charge, and he will commence in January next.
TONYPANDY. RECOGNITION SERVICES—At the English Wes- leyan Chapel, Tonypandy, on Monday last, public recognition services were held in order to welcome the newly-appointed ministers, the Rev. J. B. James and the Rev. W. May. The meetings were addressed by the Rev. P. N. Andrews, chairman of the Cardiff and Swansea circuit, and the Rev. Josiah Mee, after which a sodal tea meeting took place.
YSTRAD. LOCAL BOARD.—A special meeting of the Ystrad Local Board was held on Friday last, Mr. Alderman Jenkins (in the chair). The Ystrad bridge matter was considered, and it was decided to allow the same to stand over at least for three months for further con- sideration.—Tenders were also opened for the sewer- age contracts, and that of Mr. W. R. Parker was accepted on the motion of Mr. D. W. Davies, seconded by Mr. W. Lax.
PERSONAL PARS. FROM PONTYPRIDD. [By CURIOSSIMO.] One of the most constant visitors to the Wild West Show was Mr. Frank Roberts, son of Mr. Roberts, of the Golden Age, Penygraig. There was a special reason for his constancy. Roberts has, for the past twelve years, been a soldier in the 3rd United States Cavalry, and was a former comrade- in-arms of Mr. George Creager, the Indian inter- preter. A thorough Welshman, Frank Roberts has had a most eventful life. He was with the Mounted Infantry who captured the famous Sit- ting Bullin 1881. andhas taken part in three orfour engagements with Indians. But the most thrilling adventures of his life befel him when accompanying the Smithsonian Expedition, organised to inquire into traces of the As tec races, which originally inhabited America. Almost incredible privations were suffered. For days the expeditionary force were absolutely without food or drink, and the members thereof returned to civilisation tattered and torn relics of humanity. Roberts, who is still in the 3rd, has been spending four months' fur- lough at the old home. He has a well-developed distrust of the Indian race, a.nd was very emphatic in declaring that they all knew a great deal more of the English language than they cared to con- fess. American troops, when charging upon hostile Indians, were generally received with yells of Come on, you white-livered sons of bitches." Trooper Roberts, in fact, seems prepared to sub- scribe with his heart to Artemus Ward's definition, Indians is pizen." During the proceedings at the recent adjourned licensing sessions at Pontypridd Mr. Abel Thomas was opposed in one of his applications by Mr. Patterson, whose work upon the licensing laws is the recognised text-book of the legal profession. After Mr. Patterson had concluded an address to the Bench, in which he argued certain points, Mr. Thomas quoted Patterson against Patterson, and amid much laughter exclaimed, Oh that mine enemy should have written a book."
STEALING PIGEONS IN THE RHONDDA. HEAVY FINES. At the Ystrad Police-court on Monday—before Mr. Ignatius Williams, Mr. T. P. Jenkins, Alder- man W. Morgan, and D. W. Davies—Wm. Powell and Charles, Pundy, were charged with stealing nine pigeons, belonging to Rhys Lloyd, of the same locality. On Monday, the ISth inst., the birds were mining from a coop at the rear of the prosecutor's house. On Thursday six flew back, and on Sunday a man gave prosecutor another, and one was found in Powell's coop by Police-constable O'Neill.—Prisoners were fined £2 each.—Prisoners were also charged with stealing six pigeons belonging to John Wall, Trealaw. On the 18th July prosecutor missed the birds. Two of the pigeons returned a couple of days later, and then prosecutor went to Powell's premises and found two pigeons there which he identified. Potvell stated that he and the other prisoner entered the coop and purloined the six birds and divided them.—Prisoners were fined .£2 each on this charge also.—Prisoners were subsequently charged with stealing 15 pigeons from David Davies, Trealaw. Prosecutor missed seven in May last, and seven in the following month. The birds were all marked.—Prisoners pleaded guilty, and were again fined £.2 each.—The money was paid.
A BRUTAL HUSBAND AT TREHERBERT. THE MOTHER-IX-LAW AGAIN. At the Ystrad Policfe-court on Monday, John Williams, a collier, was charged with assaulting his wife about five weeks ago. Mr. D. Rhys ap- peared for the wife, and asked for a separation order, as the wife was on the point of being con- fined, and it would be dangerous for her to be left in the house with a brutal husband. The parties had been married but ten months, and lived with the husband's mother, who, the wife alleged, put between her husband and herself. Thos. Lewis, the father of the complainant, said that he went to see the husband one day, and he used the most diabolical threats towards him.— .Vlrs. Morris, a next-door neighbour, said the parties often quar- relled, and she had seen the wife with a black eye.—The defendant was bound over in the sum of £ 10 to keep the peace for six months, and also to pay the costs, the Bench advising him to go and live away from his mother.
A PONTYPRIDD TJBEL ACTION. THE PUBLICAN AND THE MINISTER. A SEQUEL TO THE BREWSTER SESSIONS. At Sardis Congregational Chapel on Sunday evening last the Rev. W. I. Morris, the energetic pastor of the Church, in the course of an excellent sermon dealing with the laws of the Bible, re- ferred to the ambiguity of British laws, and said that even some of the best authorities on legal questions sometimes failed to satisfactorily ex- plain the same. One solicitor explained it this way, and another gave a different version, and a third still differed, leaving the poor puzzled ad- ministrators to find out for themselves which was right. Those who had attended the recent Brewster Sessions had an example of this on the previous Wednesday. Whilst referring to that he might mention that he had received a lawyer's letter from a publican in the town against the renewal of whose licence he had objected, stating that he had slandered him by so doing, by saying that he sold intoxicating liquor on un- licensed premises, and threatening, unless he made a public apology and paid a compensation, to bring forward a libel action against him (Mr. Morris). They all new that, personally, he would not on any account libel the character of any one of his friends who kept a public-house, but as long as he lived he would not fail to raise his voice against the accursed traffic in drink. The temperance party had received, a splendid experience during the holding of the Brewster Sessions—experience which would teach them a great deal—and if he lived to see another twelve months he, for one, would take care to turn the same into good account. He had conscientiously opposed the renewal of the licence of the Clarence Hotel, and because he had done so the landlord had asked him for a public apology and compensation, or, failing that, to name a solicitor who would act for him. Such things did not frighten their eloquent temperance advocate, for it was not the first time he had re- ceived a similar application. He would not be muzzled by such people when he believed himself to be doing his duty towards God and man. It might be ea~y to ask for an apology, but he knew it would not be so easy to obtain it, unless Mr. Trenchard could prove that he had said something detrimental to his personal character. But even if they imprisoned him and fettered him, they would not be able, thank God, to stop him from protesting against drunkenness, which was the curse of his fair country and he hailed with joy this new departure of the publicans, for it would give him a better opportunity of telling all he knew, than he had at the recent Brewster Ses- sions. and he had a lot to say about what he had seen with his own eyes. He had been living in Pontypridd for 23 years, and during that time he had collected some strong facts. It had been ad- mitted at the Brewster Sessions, even by some of the publicans' advocates, that the drink traffic was the cause of much misery and wretchedness, but he would be plain and say that he had no bad feeling towards any publican in the country, but he knew that his God would hold hi in responsible if he did not do his utmost against their trade. It would be a source of joy to him, and he hoped to live long enough to see it—when a bill would be passed by the British Parliament to enable the inhabitants of a district to control the liquor traffic.
THE PONTYPRIDD LOCAL BOARD AllEA. COUNTY COUNCIL ENQUIRY. On Tuesday evening last the County Council Enquiry, with reference to the proposed extension of the area of the Pontypridd Local Board, was held at the County Court Offitse of the town before Mr. Geo. F. Deacon. The Pontypridd Local Board was represented by Mr. Abel Thomas, M.P., Mr. Howell Jeffreys for the Pontypridd Rural Sanitary Authority, Mr. G. C. James for the Merthyr Local Board, Mr. John Plews for the in- habitants of Nelson and Llanvabon. Mr. T. Mansel Franklen said that the County Council had decided that on this occasion the enquiry must be confined strictly to the proposals which Mr. Deacon had sanctioned. These pro- posals might be modified, but not substantially altered. The County Council had found that a prima facie. case had been made out, and had therefore appointed Mr. Deacon to hold the enquiry, knowing of course that they had a per- sonal knowledge of the district. Mr. Howell Jeffries thought it would be a great misfortune that the authority which he repesented should be cut up in the way which the County Council had decided, and it would be a great injury and hardship to them. They had, in fact, decided that all the coal under their jurisdiction should be taken over by other authorities. Their district was now composed of four parishes, and he would ask the Commissioner not to sanction the division of these parishes and deprive them of such a valuable area. Mr. E. C. Spickett. on being called upon to give evidence, said that the Rural Sanitary Authority comprised four parishes. The amount borrowed for the parish of Llantrissant was £2,001 at 4 per cent; for Llantwit Vardre, £2,500 at 4 per cent.; for Eglwysilan, £1,500 at 3t per cent. The rateable value of Llantrissant for sanitary purposes was £31,851; Llantwit Vardre, £35,820; Elgwysilan, £44,034 and Llanvabon, £23,04ô. Mr. Benson explained that if the proposed altera- tion would take place it would leave for the Sanitary Authority a ratable value, in the parish of Llanvabon, of £15,401 9s. 6d., and that £759 7s. 6d. would be taken by the Mountain Ash Local Board £1,595 2s. 6d. by the Merthyr Local Board and £5,142 2s. 6d. by the Pontypridd Local Board. The question of the Pontypridd boundary having been discussed, Mr. Abel 1 nomas said that each new part should be joined to the adjoining ward, so that they could take steps to form a scheme, after considering the population, and by that time they could ask for a Local Government Board inquiry on the subject of the division of the dis- trict into wards. A meeting of the Urban Sanitary Authority would be called, and the inhabitants of each district would be asked to consider their positions, but he had no authority to divide or to suggest to Mr. Deacon how to divide. Mr. Benson: We are exactly in the same position, sir. Details of each of the boundaries were then fully discussed, a precise description being given of each of the districts after the proposed additions had been made, and the proceedings were then adjourned.
YSTRAD POLICE COURT. MONDAY.—Before Mr. J. Ignatius Williams (Sti- pendiary), Mr. T. P. Jenkins, Mr. W. Morgan, and Mr. D. W. Davies. FRIGHTENING HORSES.—Edward Bray and Geo. Mitchell, Tonypandy, were charged with firing squibs and frightening some horses on Thursday night last.—Police-constable Bowen said this sort of thing was being continually done at Pandy, and such boys were a nuisance to the neighbourhood. The defendants were each fined 10s.—William Price Jones and Evan John, of Trealaw, were charged with committing a similar offence on Saturday evening.—Jones was fued 5s. and John 2s.6d. DRUNK IN CHARGE OF A HORSE.—Joseph Miller, Trealaw, was charged with being diunk whilst in charge of a horse and trap on Thursday evening last, and fined 15s. OBSTRUCTING THE POLICE.—Police-constable John (260) charged David Williams, Trealaw, with interfering with him whilst discharging his duty on Saturday evening last. The officer was taking the names of some boys, and the defendant, who was passing by, told them not to give their names. He was the worse for drink, and gave a wrong name and address to the constable.—Fined 10s. BACCHANALIANS.—Walter Evans, Pandy, was fined 15s. for being drunk and disorderly at Peny- graig on Saturday night.—For the same offence Henry Jones and Watkin Thomas, of Y strad, were each fined 5s.—Police-constable Wills charged David Griffiths. Treherbert, with being drunk and disorderly on Saturday night, but this being the first offence, the prisoner was discharged. ASSAULTING A WTIFE.—Mary Collville, Treher- bert, charged her husband, William Collville, with assaulting her on the previous Monday night. It seems that the defendant came home rather the worse for drink, and threw a cup at his wife, thereby causing a wound on her head. They had been married for 22 years, and he frequently ill- treated her. On being asked whether he could find bail, his" ife said she would become bail for him if he promised to act fair with her. (Laugh- ter.) He was, however, bound over to keep the peace for one month in the sum of £ 5. DRUNK AND RIOTOUS.—Police-constable Lewis (202) charged William Daniel and Giles Hudd with being drunk and disorderly at Pentre on Saturday night. Mr. James Phillips defended Hudd.—The constable stated that Daniel soon went away, but Hudd, who had been struck down by Daniel, was very excited, and stayed for a long time, a large crowd congregating in the meantime. —Councillor Richard Morris said that the defen- dant Hudd was sober at nine o'clock, but was very excited. Hudd, in his own defence, said he had been at a football meeting, and when coming out was struck down by Daniels, who ran away when the policeman came.—Daniels was fined 10s. and Hudson discharged. KEEPING A DOG WITHOUT A LICENCE.— Thomas Player, Trealaw, was summoned by Police- constable Johns with keeping a dog without a licence. It seems that the dog had been in his possession for about a mouth.—Thomas Brown said the dog belonged to him, and he had lent it to Player, but the officer proved that Player had another dog.—Defendant was ordered to pay costs and take out a licence immediately. MILK ADULTERATION.—Inspector Rutter, Tre- herbert, ch; rged William Thomas, of Treherbert, with selling adulterated milk. On the 23rd of August he bought a pint of milk from the defen- dant's son, and divided it into three parts, one of which he sent to the public analyst, who pro- nounced it to contain 14 per cent. of water.—He also charged Elizabeth Thomas, his wife, with the same offence, and stated that on the same day he had bought of her a pint of milk, which was found to contain 12 per cent. of water.—The defence was that it had been tampered with by the railway authorities, but the defendant was fined lCs. and £1 14s. costs in each case. ASSAULT.—John David Jones, Ystrad, charged Stephen Jones and Stephen Jenkins, of Tonypandy, with assaulting him on Wednesday week last. Mr. W. Spickett appeared for the complainant, and Mr. D. Roberts Rosser for the defendants. Several cross summonses had been taken out. It appears that on the day in question the defendants, in the first case, interfered with the complainant, and Stephen Jones took hold of him by the throat and held him against the wall, whilst Jenkins struck him on the back. —The defence set up was that the boy John David Jones had twitted Stephen Jones, and said his father had been to gaol, and that he had also struck him with a bar of iron, and assaulted Jenkins with a brush. Eventually the defendant Jones wf s fined 10s. and Jenkins 1: 1.- The following day a quarrel arose between John Jones, the father of Stephen Jones, and a man named George Weston Jones during which the defendant struck George, and he was ordered to pay the costs. ANOTHER ASSAULT.—William Evans charged Robert Roberts, Ton, Ystrad, with assaulting him on Saturday week by striking him across the face. —Fined £1. STEALING A MONEY-BOX.—Kate Jenkins, resid- ing near the Scotch Stables, Llwynypia, charged Kate Jones, a purveyor of salt fish, with stealing a money-box belonging to her brothers, and which contained some 8s. in coppers. It appears that the defendant came to Jenkins' house on the 20th of August, and soon afterwards the witness missed the money-box, and on being asked whether she had taken it she replied "No."—Police-constable O Neale said he charged the defendant with the offence, but she said she had: not been in the house that day, but that another girl had stayed the night there. The defendant, now, however, admitted her guilt, and was sentenced to 14 days. ASSAULT.—Margaret Jane Jarvis charged Ellen Jones, Treherbert, with assaulting her on the 23rd inst., by striking her on the face. Fined 5s.
THE THREE-MILE LIMIT. A PUBLICAN FIXED. At the Ystrad Police-court on Monday last, before Messrs. T. P. Jenkins. D. W. Davies, and W. Morgans, four men, named Michael Hennessey, John Murray, Peter Redmond, and Walter Coffey, were charged by Police-constable White with being drinking at the Cross Keys, Tonypandy, on Sunday week. The defendants, who were repre- sented by Mr. D. Rhys, were Catholics, and had come from Ystrad to take part in the Catholic service, the only church in the valley being at Tonypandy. The policeman said that he after- wards measured the distance from the defendant's residence to the public-house, and found it to be 2 miles 1,210 yards.—Sergeant Hayle said he had several times cautioned the landlord, Mr. Dobson, not to serve any customers from the Tonypandy side of the Bridge End Inn, Ystrad.—The men were, however, discharged.—Mr. Robert Dobson, the landlord of the Cross Keys, was also charged with supplying these men with beer on a Sunday while knowing them not to be bona fide travellers. —Mr. James Phillips, who defended, said that if the men had come along the nearest public read, they would have walked more than three miles.— The Bench, however, did not believe that the land- lord had taken the proper precautions, and fined him £ 1 and ccsts.
NANTYMOEL NEWS AND NOTES. PRESENTATION MEETING.—On Thursday evening a largely-attended meeting was held at the Wyndham Schools for the purpose of presenting an address to the Rev. W. Hughes, the curate, who has left the parish for Oldbury, near Birmingham. Dr. Thomas occupied the chair, and among those present were the rev. gentlemen:—Matthews (English Baptist), Hughes (Welsh Baptist), W. Powell (late pastor of Gilead), Roberts (Independents), W. Edwards (curate of St. Peter's), and Messrs. David Dorney, T. Llewelyn, J. Lewis, and Jacob Roberts.—The Chair- man opened the meeting by giving an in- teresting review of Mr. Hughes's work among them during the six years he had worked in the valley. Addresses were then delivered by all the re- verend gentlemen present, and all spoke in very warm terms of Mr. Hughes as a personal friend whom they were sorry to lose. Mr. Matthews was very happy in his remarks regarding Church and Dissent. Mr. Hughes was regarded by all as a man of very broad views and a professed Radical. Mr. Powell dwelt very touchingly on Mr. Hughes' departure, being able to enter more keenly into the matter, in view of his own departure from the place, which he said would be in the near future. Mr. John Lewis pre- sented the address and a purse containing £ 20. Mr. Hughes thanked all his Ogmore friends for the kindly interest taken in him. He had tried to do his best among them, and trusted that he left few enemies behind him. Messrs. T. :lewellyn, chemist, Ty- newydd, and J. Dorney spoke, the latter saying that Mr. Hughes had not pleased a certain section in the parish because he had inot gossipped enough with them. During the evening a poem by Gwenfryn was read, and Mr. Tom Williams gave two songs. Mr. Hughes left on Friday morning for Birmingham. A NARROW ESCAPE. — On Monday Dr. Davies' little boy, a child of four years, was all but caught by an engine on the crossing. He was coming from school, and after crossing the line he strayed back right before a locomotive which was coming up at the time, and the engine actually touched him as he stepped off the metals. The railway company ought in all consicence to place a bridge here, where there are so many little children crossing. A SURPRISE FOR HER MAJESTY'S INSPECTOR. -On Monday Mr. Gomer Jones paid a surprise visit to the schools of the valle), and after giving a surprise to the teachers all round dropped in himself for a genuine surprise. Mr. Jones started to cross the mountain for Clydach Vale, and was caught in a heavy mist on the mountain top, and after wandering about for some time began to make the descent of the mountain, only to find himself ajain at Nantymoel. THE NANTYMOEL HARMONIC SOCIETY.—The above male-voice party, which has shown considerable talent in the past, are commencing their winter prac- tices. A bit of plucky application on their part, and they will show some good work. ??A STARTLING STORY.—It appears that a collier living in Nantymoel has got tired of the coal pit because his eyes are weak and he can't see very well. What he proposes taking to is the barber's trade. It is too terrible to think of! Imagine a half-blind man man dangling a keen-edged razor about one's face. We shall be glad to hear that the man has given up ail idea of competing in the tonsorial field. LECTURE AND MAGIC LANTERN VIEWS.—On Monday and Tuesday evening an interesting lecture was delivered at Gilead Chapel, the lecture being illus- trated by magic lantern views. The subject was "Kashia and Janitea," and a missionary who has laboured in those parts of India delivered the lecture.
T VOLUNTEER INTELLIGENCE. SHOOTING MATCH.—CARDIFF v. BRIDGEND. On Saturday last a match between a team re- presenting the regular forces at Cardiff and the shooting team of the 2nd Volunteer Battalion Welsh Regiment, came off on the Newbridge Range, Bridgend. The distances arranged were 200, 500 and 600 yards, seven shots at each. It will be seen from the scores below that the shoot- ing was not up to the average, adverse winds blowing frequently notwithstanding this Col.- Sergeant Cowell put on an highest possible on the 200 yards range The home team were especially disappointing.
