NEATH. CANTATA.—On Thursday evening last. at the Gwyn Hall, Root's popular cantata, entitled The Hay- iral ers," was performed in character by Siloh choir, under the able conductorship of Mr. D. R. Stewart. Among those present were the Mayor, Mr. W. B. Trick and Mrs. Trick, Mr. John Arnold. ex-Mayor, Mr. J. B. Davies and Mrs. Davies. Mr. Hopkin Morgan, and Mr. A. Russell Thomas. The programme was a 'ong and varied one, and was performed excel- lently well, mucll to the credit of the choir and its con- ductor, who have laboured hard to get the piece up to perfection. This choir has given similar performances before, and has, by its excellence of singing, gained a wide reputation, and by these performances has aided .veriady to lessen the debt of the chapel, to wV';h cause the proceeds are each time devoted. They have been asked to give a second performance of this cantata, and they in end doing so in a short time. We should have mentioned that the accompanists were—Piano- forte, Mr. S. Arnold; American organ, M. E. Davies, who, needless to say, performed their parts excellently. MUNICIPAL ELECTION —Thero is likely to be a lively time of it in Neath over the municipal election, to take place on the 2nd proximo. There are six candi- dates for the four seats which will become vacant. Four of these are backed by the Liberal Club—vi-i., Mr. Edward Davies, Mr. J. B. Davier, Mr. William Cribh, and Mr. A. Russell Thomas Mr. Howel Cuthbertson, the county coroner, has, at the earnest j request of a large number of ratepayers, decided to contest. Mr. Cutnberinon is a most effie'ent man to occupy a seat in the Council Chamber, a fact which he amply proved during the number of years he served as a Town Councillor before, during whi"h time he was elected mayor. He contested a seat at the last elec- tion, and it is believed that the only recson why he was not elected was that he was not a resident of tho town; but now that he has moved inj) the neighbour- hood there can hardly be a doubt but that he will be elected. Mr. Edmund Law, a well-known figure in the County Courts, being a buyer of old debts, is another candidate. He has been defeated on one or two occa- sions before, but seems to go to this poll with more ardent hopes of success than on former cicasions. He will certainly get much sympathy in the Melyncrythan district for his recent acts of charity towards those who suffer from the tin works strike there. Mr. J. B. Davies has lost much of his popularity because of certain injudicious proceedings on his part, and the general belief is that he stands very little chance of success. Mr. Thomas Russell comes out to contest the seat rendered vacant by the withdrawal of Mr Wm. Griffiths. Mr. Thomas is a comparatively young man, a. solicitor in the town, is very energy ic, and would, perhaps, iu spite of his inexpe 'rice, serve the ratepayers well. Mr. Law, in his printed address, says he will publicly address the electors at the usual meeting held on the night prior to the election day but was Mr. Law aware that that night happens to be this time a Sunday night ? AN INTERESTING MEETING was held on Tuesday evening last at the Council Chamber of the Gwyn Hall. the occasion being a presentation to the Rev. D. W. Elias, Calvinistic Methodist minister, who is leav- ing the town for Liverpool. Mr. F. J. Gibbons occu- pied the chair. The meeting was addressed by the chai-.ran and several of the ministen of the town, who spoke of Mr. Elias in very flattering terms. The presentation consisted of an elaborate address and a purse of money, and a beautiful framed certificate of membership was presented by the Rcchabite Friendly Society. Very appropriate songs were excellently sung by Mr. Frank Joshua and Miss Evans of Dow- lais, and a quar ,ette was well rendered by Messrs, Dd. Thomas and Abraham George, and tho Misses Evans and George.
