The counting of the votes commenced a little after nine o'clock OIl Thursday morning at the Local Board Offices, Mr. J. Jewel Williams acting as returning officer. The first vote recorded was for Dr. O'Donnell, who, for a time, made the runninsr, but was followed closely by Mr. John Robinson and Mr. Meggitt. About half-past nine Mr. Robinson took the lead, followed by Dr. O'Donnell and Mr. Meggitt. Mr. Rees Phillips and General Lee ran hotly for the fourth place, General Lee polling 49 votes and Mr. Phillips 50. At 10,30, when an interval for the inspection of doubtful papers was allowed, Mr. John Robinson had polled 215, Mr. Meggitt 172, Dr. O'Donnell 139, General Lee 127, and Mr. Roes Phillips 111. The rest were left far behind, Mr. Milward polling 88, Mr Harrison 68, Mr. Tones-Lloyd 45, and Mr. Saunders 30. At half-past twelve Mr. Meggitt headed the poll with 446 votes, the other votes being—Robinson, 433 Dr. O'Donnell, 346, General Lee, 231 Mr. Phillips, 272 Mr. Milward, 229 Mr. Harrison, 213 Mr. Jones-Lloyd, 151 and Mr. Saunders, 49.

The other candidates stood in the following order :— Mr. Rees Phillips (still closely following for the fourth place), 444 Mr. Milward, 353 Mr. Harrison, 333 Mr. F. P. Jones-Lloyd, 203 and Mr. Saunders. 71. During the afternoon groups of people assembled outside the Local Board office, and eagerly discussed matters re- lating to the election. With the counting of succeeding batches of papers it became evident that it would take a deal to displace the four old members.

DISESTABLISHMENT MEETING AT PONTYPRIDD. SPEECHES BY REVS. J. MATTHEWS, J. GARIBALDI THOMAS, COUNCIL- LORS DAVIES, SPICKETT, &c. A most enthusiastic meeting was held at the Town-hall, Pontypridd, on Wednesday evening last, when Mr. Councillor H. S. Davies presided over a very large audience. The Chairman having explained the object of the meeting, went on to say that what the Church had received from national sources should be given up when the Church was disestablished. Council- lor Davies then called upon Mr. Councillor Spickett to propose That this meeting declares its conviction that the time has come when the Church of England in Wales 'should be Disestab- lished and Disendowed, and that the revenues after compensating vested interests should be devoted to truly national purposes." (Applause,) No one had a greater interest in this movement than he had, and if there was anything he could do towards promoting the interest of the Disestablish- ment movement in Wales, he was ready to do it. (Hear. hear.) He could not see why the ministers of a church with whom they had nothing in com- mon should have preference over Nonconformist ministers. (Cheers.) Referring to Ireland, he said they would do well to follow the the example of Ireland in the Disestablishment campaign, for there no stone had been left unturned to obtain their ends. (Cheers.) Unless they continued to agitate the other side would think they were lukewarm in the matter, and they would not attain their ends for a longer time. (Applause.) Mr. W. Jones seconded, and said they did not want any of the private property of the Church, but they demanded a similar enjoyment of national property. No great victory had been won by apathy, and he hoped that after the next election they would have the satisfaction of returning a large majority of Liberals in tin House of Com- mons. (Cheers.) The Rev. J. Matthews supported, and, in doing so, said that Welshmen were not seeking any favour but demanding their rights, and they found that the Church defenders had been spinning cobwebs across the way, and he came there that night to dash away a new cobweb spun by a man who had been in Pontypridd. (Laughter.) There was no champion in Wales who came there to defend the Church, but they had to obtain people from London to do so, and that was a strong argument why the Church should be disestablished. (Cheers.) How often would it have to be repeated that the fight was not against the Church as a church, but against the Church as a State institution. What they pleaded for was the freedom of the Church from the State. (Hear, hear.) No power, however great, could save the establish- ment from destruction. Then Mr. Helm said it had not been established by the State. If it had not been established why not make such a fuss about the disestablishment. In reply he said that every Act of Parliament conferring power upon the Church was an Act of establishment, and every Act taking away that power and putting it in the hands of the people was an Act of disestablish ment. Why the Church had been established by hundreds of Acts and the history of the Church of England, according to the late Professor Freeman, was the history of the House of Commons, trial by jury and other great institutions. Mr. Helm had I also said that the Nonconformist denominations were established, but he, Mr. Matthews, declared that these denominations were on exactly the same ground as the disestablished Church in Ireland, and therefore they were not established by law. Let Mr. Helm read what had taken place in Ireland and then he would not talk such unmitigated nonsense as that. (Cheers.) He then denied in toto the remarks of Mr. Helm that the Liberations were going to "Shave the Church close to the skin "-(hear, hear)-and that they would "sweep I the Church away as an organised society absolutely from the field." (Hear, hear.) And proved that there was more life and activity visible in the Irish Church since its disestablish- ment than had been shown since the Reformation. (Applause.) Mr. Helm had also said that the Church of England in Wales had been the Church of Wales for 1.300 years, and the main part of the Nonconformity of Wales was not even a century of age," but the late Dean of Banoor had stated at Swansea that the Church of Wales had ceased to exist at the time of the Norman Conquest. (Hear, hear.) What the Church of England, hoary with age, had failed to do poor persecuted and tolerated Nonconformity dur- ing the last century had kept religion alive in the Principality. Why then should Nonconformists be compelled by law to support a church which would have allowed the Principality to go down into heathenism. (Hear, hear.) Deal:ng with the next assumption of Mr. Helm that the Church defenders would win the fight as they had in many another, he agreed with that, but how had they won other battles, they had all been F.S. -Flat Shots." In conclusion the rev. gentle- man predicted that the Grand Old Man and his followers would compel the Church to loosen its hold of the State, and that the country would soon enjoy religious equality. The Rev. Garibaldi Thomas then supported in Welsh, and dealt with the history of the Church of England, and the resolution was carried with acclammation. Hearty votes of thanks having been accorded to the several speakers, the meeting was brought to an end.
THE PONTYPRIDD NATIONAL EISTEDDFOD. HOW THE LORD MAYOR WILL BE WELCOMED. A well-attended and representative meeting of the townspeople of Pontypridd was held at the Town- hall on Tuesday night for the purpose of arrang- ing the best manner to welcome the Lord Mayor of London upon the occasion of his visit to Ponty- pridd, on the 4th of July next, to assist in pro- claiming the National Eistedsfod of 1893.

There were some buildings adjoining the hay- stores.-Defendants were fined 10s. each. PARENTAL ASSAULT.—Henry Stroud summoned his father, Arthur Stroud, for assaulting him in his shop on Wednesday, the 30th inst. His father had struck him three times in the mouth.

STEALING A TROUSER.-William Davies, Tony- pandy.wascharged with the above offence byThomas Jones, outfitter, Taff-street, Pontypridd, prosecutor said that on the afternoon of Tuesday, the 29th ult., he missed a cloth trouser from the front door- way of his shop.

STEALING MONEY. — George Seymour was charged on a warrant with stealing the sum of £2 10s. from Margaret Phillips. Llantwit, on the 7th of September last, at Treforest Railway Station.—Complainant, sworn, said that she was in the bottle and jug department of the Horse and Groom, Pontypridd, on the 17th of September last by herself reckoning her money. The defendant came in when she was reckoning her money which she had in her hand. She had £ 2 in gold, and 10s. in silver. Defendant came in and called for a drink, but he was refused it. He was eventually turned out. She did not see him then until that night at Pontypridd Railway Station quarrelling with his wife. She, the complainant, interposed, and the defendant put his fist in her face. She did not see him again until she was in Treforest, when he came out of the carriage, and knocked her down on the platform, and tried to strangle her, and a policeman came and separated him from her. She then put her hand in her pocket and found that her money was gone, and the defendant ran away from the policeman. As they were walking down the main road about twenty minutes afterwards defendant came up and said, 4i Search me if you think I have your purse." A warrant was then issued for his arrest, but he bsconded, and she had not seen him until that day.—Fanny Tracey said that she saw the complainant buying ornaments on the Ponty- pridd platform, and she paid 2s. 6d. for them.

At the Pontypridd Police-court on Wednesday, Elias Rogers was brought up before the Stipendiary charged with stealing a. watch and chain, value two guineas, from the pocket of a coat belonging to Herbert Griffiths, an engine driver at Dinas Colliery, on Tues- day. It appears that the defendant was sleeping in the engine room where the coat in question was hang- ing, and whilst Griffiths went out for a few minutes took it away and left. Police-constable Daniel Jones arrested the defendant and found the watch in his house.—Prisoner was sentenced to three months' im- prisonment with hard labour.
DEFRAUDING A PAWNBROKER AT YNYSYBWL. On Wednesday last at the Pontypridd Police-court, before Mr. J.

On Wednesday at the Pontvpridd Police-court. a young lad, named Robert Henry Griffiths, of Mardy, was brought up charged with stealing a sum of £ 3 from the person of John Rees Williams, at the Mardy Hotel, on the 23rd of November last. The prosecutor said 'he had slept in the bar of the hotel, and that the defendant sat by his side. When he awoke the defendant was gone. and Williams missed his money. Since that time de- fendant had not been seen at Mardy, but several people from Ferndale deposed that they had seen him with a lot of money, which he said he had won by playing cards. Defendant brought forward a witness who said he had seen him tossing for money with the complainant, and the defendant was committed to take his trial at the next Qnarter Sessions.

The Barry branch of the Irish National League made efforts to secure the presence of an Irish member at next Thursday's Young Wales gathering, but on Wednesday Mr. J. McDonell received a letter from Mr. J. F. C. O'Brien, M.P., the general secre- tary, stating that this was impossible, as there is at present a pressure of engagements for the members of the Irish Parliamentary party. At the Barry Local Board counting yesterday it was seen that one man voted for Robinson and Harrison. "When shall we two meet again?
CARDIFF FABIAN SOCIALIST SOCIETY. PROSPECTS OF THE LABOUR PARTY. On Friday evening a lecture was delivered in connection with this society by Mr. W. S. de Mattos, B.A., vice-president of the London Con- ciliation Board, on The Position and Prospects of the Labour Party." The chair was taken by Mr. Mead. Among those present were Mr. and Mrs. J. Chappell, Miss Fergusson, Mr. Fitzpatrick. Dr. D. R. Jones, Dr. Parr, Mr. Tom Taylor, &c. The LECTURER pointed out that the rise of the Labour party had been recent. The five or six Labour members in this Parliament, among whom Mabon deserves a foremost place, have done a vast amount of good. Colliery operations are 50 per cent. less dangerous than they were a few years ago. However, the great a vakening in the labour world, and the great addition to the band of Trades Unionists from the ranks of the labourers, has rendered it possible to multiply several times the number of labour representatives in the next Par- liament. For, though the older Trades Unions were non-political the new Trades Unionism is distinctly political. Another factor which helps to create a labour party is the fact that the tendency of the legislation of the classes is to help but little this condition of the masses. Their class interests prevents them to aim at the real bettering of the working classes. This is plainly seen from the Newcastle Conference—the Liberal, not the Workmen's Conference, which was far more businesslike. See how the Eight Hours' Bill, which Sidney Webb tried to bring forward was shelved there. Mr. Gladstone, whose ability no one denies, expressed great sympathy with the working classes, but still used his influence against this Bill. Yet it had been conclusively proved over and over again that with shortening of hours wages did not fall, and that output increased. It is notorious that long hours mean low wages, and vice-versa. Mr. Gladstone might have known, had he wished, that there were 40,000 women working long hours in Manchester at 5s. per week. It has been admitted by some that we had a right to inter- fere on behalf of women, but not on the men's part, whereas in the great industrial armies men are quite as helpless as women. Sir John Gorst also has expressed extreme sympathy with the workers, and deprecated all their schemes for their own improvement, and contented himself with advocating an abortive plan of old age pensions. Thus, from Liberal and from Con- servative we get re-echoed that the inte- rests of Labour and Capital can not be identical. In the nature of things, their interests can not be identical until labour and capital belong both to the same persons, for the bigger share the capitalist takes of the products of labour, the less the remaining share of the actual producer. The labour party is only forming, but the Scotch are in this matter, as in education, generally in advance of the English. Next, what should be the relation of the labour to the other parties ? It has been said that the Labour party tends to be hostile to the Liberal party. Though, as already said, there is want of community of interest still hostility there is none. Take the exact statistics. There are already 21 labour candidates put forward. Of these 18 are against Conservatives. In Scotland, from the nature of things, Labour Candidates must oppose the Liberals, since there are hardly any others, as in Wales, to oppose. Assuming then that we have 40 or 50 labour representatives in the next parliament, what can such a small number do ? From what has happened with regard to Home Rule we see what power they may have. Take also the instance of Mrs. Besant on the London School Board. The getting of decent wages by the workmen engaged indirectly by the Board. The same measure- has also been adopted on the London County [Council, subsequently. From L Australia we have another lesson. We must admit that in this Australian strike Labour dis- astrously lost. Labour, however, soon mustered its forces, and in the recent New South Wales Parliament there were 39 Labour representatives out of 131. With this number Labour held the balance, and over the Eight Hoars' Bill the Govern- ment, through them, fell. Take also the instance of John Burns and the London County Council. He had the definite aim of reducing the large salaries and increasing the wages of the labourers, and he has met with most marked success. What is London to-day ? Instead of not having a muni- cipal representation worth anything, there are now three-fourths pledged to a progressive policy. But, to bring the Labour party to a proper relation with the Liberal party, it is necessary that there should be a further cleavage of the Liberal party. Those who lag behind should go the way of the Liberal Unionists. Then all the Conservatives and the false Liberals should go together to form the party of iniquity, leaving the other a really progressive one. Now, what does this Labour partp want ? 1—Votes for all men and women. 2-Payment of members, all members, not the poor ones only, as some Liberals would advocate. 3— A far more efficient Factory Act. 4-Taxation of land and capital. 5-Re-adjustment of Royaltes. The lecturer knew of one large ironworks now idle because of the Royalties, which oost actually double that of the labour per ton of iron. This fine gentleman recently contributed £ 100 towards the distress of those unemployed through him, and spent :E 10,000 to stock his place with pheasants, See., in order to entertain the Prince of Wales. And a monstrous shame it was to hang those men the other day for the life of a pheasant. It has been preached for the last 1,800 years that those who will not work neither shall they eat. Yet people still talk of moralising capital. There is ample for aU if we could only share justly. The annual production has swelled from L7 per head 200 years ago. to near 440 per head (man, woman, or child) now. And even yet we are on the threshold. Sir Wm. Thompson has calculated that the energy in the tides round this island is vastly greater than that of all the coal now in use and more lasting, and this tide energy is all unused yet. To better things the actual worker needs only make the right use of his vote. An interesting discussion followed, the passing of the customary votes of thanks concluding the meeting.
