The first item la the list was that of Sta-boit's week, the men claim;ug that in the eve:it of being called upon to wot;-m Mahon's Day they shouhf be paid for the full rook, and not five days, as hitherto. A lengthy and "heated discussion" toak place on this point, but, although there was a good attendance^ the Meeting and tli-3 question was under consideration for nearly two hours, no satisfactory under^taud- itvy was arrived at, it being felt th.vt., w!i:!e th,s concession oifeivd by the general m-uiager xvas satisfactory so far as the locomotive men "*vere concerned, the traffic men would, tvidS«r the "hew arrangement, be working under .a disad- vantage, and wornd consequently be in bst liitle better position than at present.

BARRY SAILORS AND PREVAILING…
BARRY SAILORS AND PRE- VAILING DISPUTES, DELICATE STATE OF AFFAIRS. The movement on the part of shipowners in the port of Cardiff to reduce the wages of the sailors has extended to Barry during the past week, and several determined attempts (though in most cases futile) have been made to ship crews of foreigners at 44 and £4 5s. instead of the regular P,5 per month. Acting upon instructions from the local secretary of the National Union (Mr. J. Harrison), however, the boarding-masters of the district have combined unanimously to reject the offers of re- duction, and so far no crew of Barry men has been secured. Imported hands have, notwithstanding, been introduced, and ships have sailed from Barry during the week manned almost entirely by Greeks, Italians, and colourecl men. On Friday evening the steamer Manchester left the dock, having the same day shipped a crew of the same nationalities at P,4 and P,4 10s. wages per month. As the ship left the basin there were no members of the crew to be seen on board except the officers, and it is believed the crew were either below or were taken on board outside. A hostile crowd of sailors and their friends assembled on the pier-head, and bricks, stones and other missiles were thrown at the steamer, and the crowd hooted lustily. Dur- ing the past day or two a member of the crew of the steamer Rion (of Newcastle), managed by Messrs. Stephens, Mawson, and Goss, of Newport, &c.. handed a copy of the following extraordinary notice to the branch secretary of the Seamen's Union (Mr. Harrison), and stated that copies of the notice had been hung up in the forecastle and distributed to each of tho non-commissioned members of the crew. NOTICE. All complaints relating to the quantity and quality of the food supplied to this vessels' crew must be made to the master during reasonable hour. and to the master only. The scale of provisions contained in the articles or agreement form a legal part of the snid articles, and are quite as binding as the wages agreed upon. While strict adherence to the above scale of pro- visions is not at all times intended, seamen and firemen are warned that the additions to such scale are a gift from the owners or master, and cannot bo demanded. It must be distinctly understood that seamen and fire- men signing articles for the Loard of Trade scale of provisions place themselves out of court as regards any addition thereto, good conduct and attention to duty only earning the more liberal dietary. Seamen and firemen arc earnestly requested to delegate one of their number to attend on store days and at four p.m. daily, in order that each may see what he does get. By Order, THE MASTER. An original copy of this notice was forwarded by Mr. Harrison on Sunday afternoon to the Union headquarters in London. Our representative was also officially informed that at Barry the sailors are determined not to accept the proposed reduction in wages. They have during the past dav or two turned out willingly to do picket duty at the railway station and dock approaches, and are prepared at any moment to come out on strike should such an emergency arise. No attempt whatever was made during Monday at Barry to ship crews at less than the standard. rate of wages, all crews signed having been taken on at Union rates. 1 I.

SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST AN ABERKENFIG PUBLICAN. At the Bridgend Police-court on Saturdav, before Mr. R. W. Llewellvn (chairman). Colonel Frank I en, Ma j or D. R. David, and Mr. W. G.

Pcliee-constabic Ishmael Morley, stationed at Aberken jg, said defendant kept a beer-house at Aberkeniig. About one o'clock midday last Sunday he visited delendar: ;'s house and saw the landlord's son. aged about 14, running into the back kitchen. When witness was goiug- through the door he saw David Potter rising from the bench, and run into the pantry. The landlord met him at the door, and witness asked who it was that ran into the pantry. He replied, There's no one there, you are mistaken this time." Witness went to the pantry, and pulled Potter out. Witness asked him what he was doing there drinking on the Sunday. The landlord said "Its my fault. I asked him to come in, and I gave him a pint." and pointed to a pot three parts full of beer. Defen- dant said that he hoped witness would not say anything about it. Witness drew the landlord's attention to John Fisher who was lying down in the closet helplessly drunk. Tho landlord said '• Its my premises, but he had no beer." Witness then told defendant lie should report him, and he "aid" I hope you will forgive me this time." The landlord was very much the worse for drink. In reply to Mr. Scale, witness said the closet was open so that anyone could get into it. He did not suggest that the man Fisher had had any drink at the Bell. He had asked him where he had been drinking, but he would not tell. Witness stated that a lot of women of low character went into the Bell drinking, but he had not reported that to the Superintendent. Mr. Scale Don't you think that is a very im- portant matter, which you should have communi- cated to the Superintendent. \Vhy in the world do you suggest such a wrong, wicked thing as that ? It is scandalous. You say yon have seen nothing cut of the way, and yet you wish the magistrates to believe it is a house of prostitutes. You ought to be ashamed of yourself for saying it. It is scandalous. In the course of further remarks Mr. Scale said he had a doctor's certificate stating that defendant could not attend court owine to injuries which he had received otherwise he would give a very different version to what they had heard from the constable. What they said was that Potter was negotiating the sale of a pig. and that on Sunday morning. Mrs. Thomas' ion had just come in from Church. Potter was passing the house, and was asked in with a view to come to some agreement about the pig. He was upon the premises when the constable came in, and it was true that he was g-iven a pint of beer. The nouse had been well conducted for the past efaht or ten years. He was instructed that the constable's version of what took place between himself and the landlord was not correct. Mrs. Thomas said i'isher was not in their house last Sunday. The closet behind the-house was open to the public, and that was the reason they kept one locked for their own private use. Potter was in the house on the bunday, her husband having asked him in. He was in the kitchen. She had seen him two or three times about buying a pig, but could not come to any conclusion, so they hred him in the house to see if they could agree. They asked him if he would have pint of beer. The Pclice-con- stable Morley c-aine in round by the back. She saw 110^ beer supplied to Potter, only that which ner liusoand gave him. She did not see her son come in from church, as he was in before her. She saw him in the pantry, and saw him come out with a piece of cake and a bottle of ginger beer. Her son was 17 years next birthday, and bad been in from church not more that 5 or 10 minutes. She had heard the statement that her husband was drunk, but it was not correct. No complaints had been made to her with regard to the wav in which the house was conducted. She denied" that her house was frequented by bad women, but admitted that on one occasion she called in the police. That was when she a ad her husband had had a few words. Upon that occasion her husband was rather the worse for drink.-The case was adjourned a week in order that defendant might attend.

SINGULAR DEATH AT BRIDGEND.
SINGULAR DEATH AT BRIDGEND. An Inquiry was held at the Bridgend Police- stat;on on Monday afternoon, before Mr. 1". B. Reece, coroner, touching the death of William iranc:* Evans.<red 5 years, son of Francis Evans, liirm labourer. White Iiock. Lower Coity. Anti Lvans said deceased wns a strong cluld. and had not been unwell lately but was not very well on Friday afternoon, when he returned I from the National School, sick. lie had g-OJJD to school at 9 o'clock in the morning, returning home a little before one. He looked pale, and said he had been sick in school several times. He was very thirsty, and witness gave him some tea with milii. He went to bed about 6 o'clock, prior to which ho lay on the sofa. He was sick directly after taking the tea. He slept only about a couple of hours on the Friday night, and called for drink. Witness went to him twice, and his father went once. Each time they gave him tea and milk to drink. His bowels seemed to he in good order. Oh 11 the Saturday morning he was still very thirsty and ill, so they kept, him in bed, giving him some senna tea. He was not sick at all on Saturday, but wasivery"thirsty all day. drinking tea and milk. They did not send for a doctor, as he seemed to be better about the middle of the day. Witness last saw him alive at half-past four, 'when she asked him if he was thirsty, and he said "Yes." She gave him some milk, and told some children to fetch his father, as he was looking very ill. Deceased s feet lking- very cold she wrapped them with a warm flannel. About 10 minutes later she cimc to see him. and found him lying dead in bed. Dr. C. J. Llewellin deposed that h the body of deceased yesterday, as requested by Super- intendent Thomas. It was about 12.30. Death apparently had ensued the previous day. Witness examined the body, and found no marks or injury. The body was well nourished, and the child seemed to have been well cared for. He thought death occurred from inflammation of the bowels, caused by improper food. The food had causcd a very severe attack of indigestion, resulting in the inflammation. There was no symptoms of poison, and he was quite satisfied that death ensued from natural causes. The Coroner said the only thing that occurred to him was that the 1ittle boy must have been very ill some hours before he died, and if anybody had been carefully observing him one would have thought they could have seen him getting worse, and would have sent for a doctor. In answer to the Coroner. Mrs. Evans said deceased had held broth, with milk in it. for break- fast, on the Friday, and had also some bread and cheese. The Coroner observed that he thought; such food hardly suitable for 90 young a child so early in the morning. He should be very lo.th to take'it him- self. Commenting upon the evidence, the Coroner said he did not think the parents wil fully neglected the deceased, but had made a mistake ill nCltcallillg in a doctor. The jury returned a verdict that the child died from natural causes, probably inflammation of the bowels. 1
RELIGIOUS WORK AT BED WAS.
RELIGIOUS WORK AT BED WAS. INTERESTING RETROSPECT. Bedwas is a thriving colliery villasre picturesquely situated on the southern slope of Mynydd-y-grug. two miles distance from the ancient town of Caerphilly. The river Rhymney gracefully passes through the valley on iU course to the Bristol Channel. Some suppose that the name is deriverl from Bedw-laa (blue birch), which abounded years ago in the meadows at the foot of the hill. Others think it is derived from Maes-y-bedw. since there are so many "Maesydd" to be be found in the county of Monmouth, sifcli as Maesycwmer, Maes- y-llech, Maesyshelisr. fee., fee. The parish of Bedwas is comparatively small, being only about five miles Ion:?, extending from Maes- yowmer to the north, to Cwmyglo. near Machen, to the cast, and only over-Lipping the hills dividing the rivers Rhymney and Ebbwy. Sixty- four years ago there was not one Nonconformist coapel in the whole parisa. Tabor Independent Chapel. Maesycwmer, was built in the year 1829. The Established Church at Bedwas village dates back as far as the twelfth century. Abo>it~48 year ago a Welsh Baptist Chapel was built. b;ing a branch of Tonvvelin Church, Caerphilly. The Weslevan chapel was built in the vear 1875. List year Bethel Independent Church, Caerphilly", which is under the pastoral care of the veteran Rev. D. Richards, built a branch chapel at Bedwas—a structure that is quite a model of neatness within and without, as will be seen by the above view. It measures 39 feet by 34. and will accom- modate about 350 worshippers, at a cost of £ 330. It has been felt hy the friends at Bedwas that such a structure was much needed, as from 30 to 40 members belonging to Bethel Church resided in tho immediate locality. The Rev. D. Richards, Caerphilly,preached there occasionally in members'' houses mostly for the list 30 years. He also started a Sabhath School about 20 years ago at the house of the late Mr. William Matthews', a local preachar, and brother of the late pooular minister the Rev. John Matthews, of Neath." That school was discontinued in a few mouths. About three years ago the Bethel members felt more keenly the want of a Sabbath School, and thev rented a dwelling-house on broadside, at th,; foot of the church hill. and csivertt-d it into a miniature chapel for holding services and Sunday School which was duly opened bv the Rev. 1). Richards on the 2'5t'n of October, 1889. Alderman H. Anthony. J.P., Caerphilly, and Mr. John Row- lands, Ben was T-Itraso. also t-ojk part in the opening j meeting. Sudt was th3 success of the ministry at i this place that it-sw>R became intdoquat". and they had to repair to fhe Board Schools, which were kindly placed ai. xkeir service. In clue time tho Saron Independer-1 Ohapel was completed. The sacred edifice do?.f7!ed by Mr. E. Jones, builder, and constructt»y Mr. Thomas Rossiter. ^a-er- philly. and stands on the estate of Mr. J. Thomas Davies, eon of M-r. E. Thomas. J.P., TyJagwyn. Preliminary opening services took place on Nov. 10th. TS91, when the Rev. D. Richards preached, and Alderman H. Anthony, J.P. Mr. John R<jwlan5s. EeSwas House, and Mr. Thomas colliery managers, 'Cwmglo. delivered addre^eV Bethel Church pai'for and members at Bedwas contributed, and collected the sum of c230. The final opellingservicet; took place on Tuesday even- ing and Wednesday afternoon and evening, when the following ministers took part in. the services: Revs. D. Jsfin, Ruay T. J. Husrhes, Maesycwmer ■ E. Jenkics, Terndale; D. L. Williams. M-aeuen J. Williataa, Havod-; and C. Tawelfryn Them-As. Groeswen. The pre« nt number of members at Bedwas are 40, wii!h a Sunday School of 70 scholars, and an average congregation of 80 people leaving Bef&el, Caerpkilly with a iitemberslai-p of 210, and 'Snoday School with 250 scholars. Mr. Edmunds, -postmaster, Caerphilly, acted as secre- tary, and Mr. Anthony as treasurer to the build- ing fund.

Brookes. pi-esiditil, Mr. Edward G-rifnn proposed, and Mr. Hunter seconded, the following resolution :— That this branch of the Irish National League of Great Biitain and Ireland condemns in the strongest possible manner the treasonable and cowardly speech of Lord fsuisbury to his fellow old women of the t :-imros.3 League, and that we assure him of our ability to follow his advice to the Orangemen should needs arise. Further, that we call upon th- Pro- testant party of all sects in Ireland to throw in their iot with their Catholic feUow-oountrvmfn nn.I to no longer be the eatspaw of any party whose ->oIioy is to divide and conqucr and to set Irishmen against j Iijshmeu.

vVATER SUPPLY IN TH8 KHONDDA.
vVATER SUPPLY IN TH8 KHONDDA. SHOCKING STATE OF AFFAIRS. At the Ystrad Local Board on Monday. Mr. W. H. Mathias presiding, the medical officer sub- mitted the following report:— We visited the Blaen-Rhondda House Coal Icvals. and found unmistakeable evidence that dirty water from the levels entered the stream above the Ystrad Gas ana Water Company's intake. The water was flowing out of the levels and into the river on account of the inefficient character of the works to convey the same beyond the intake. During wet weather the level water flowed directly from the banks into the river, and also wateT percolating through the ground on account of the stratification of the rocks. We saw several instances ef these level waters fouled bv human filth, consequently the waters that most of tha inhabitants of the Ystrad district drink are tainted with human filth, and matters are likely to grow still worse as the ce-Uieries here are being developed rapidly. There were 100 men and eight horses in the workings that day. The Clerk referred to a similar case which had taken place in London, where the Water Company had been co&victed. The Local Board could not bring an a&tion in their own name, but they could get the Attorney-General's imt.—Mr. T. Griffiths That they should tilce action against the company ? —The Chairman suggested that they should st-nll a copy of ulte report, and ask them to c.trrv ou: the suggestions of the Board which hid. giveri to them two years ago, to take pipes above the f.ill. They shosM at the same time ask for an e.ulv reply, ana that the work should be completed in three mcat-hs, otherwise pi-ooe-edings would be taken.—Mr. Griffiths said this had bec;t done before, .nsd inasmuch as they had notiftod the company they should now compel them to carry out the vwrk.—If. was eventually resolved that the company 'be asked to give a guarantee in a fort- night that the work would be carried out in three months.

WE have the pleasure of calling atten- f tion to our "Fortnightly Syndicates" (Limited), for dealing in Stocks and Shares on the Combination System, and which, smce their inaugura- tion last year, have proved a source of considerable profit to our regular Subscribers. Departing from the ordinary method invariably ndcptcd by the Syndicate Agents, we find it mure con- '1' ducive to business, and much more satisfactory to Subscribers, to afford them all, and every information as to the extent of the respective Syndicates, and the amount of Sto;;k dealt in, reserring to ourselves the pn\ liege selecting, s occasion may offer, the Stocks to be operated in. and of closing" the same at such moment as our jn Igment may suggest to be the most opportune for scouring profits. e. would point out that we have no fixed nrice for Syndicate Shares, inasmuch as each Syndicate is com- posed of varying subscriptions; the Subscribers thus occupy the same relative position, as profits are divided in proportion to the sums inuivi lualiy invested, our own charge of one-eight commission, on Stocks opened being first deducted. Our Syndicates are formed 011 the 1st and 15th of each month, in subscriptions of from £ 2 to £ 10, the minimum sum affording clients the opportunity 01 testing our system with a ve ry moderate outlay. A Syndicate once formed, we lose no time in opera- ting and immediately advise each Subscriber of the current amount being dealt with, and the actual quantity or Stock opened, thus approximating to each Member the exact amount of Stock covered by his subscription, and oa which his profits are calculated, no Subscriber being, m any case, liable for more than the sum he actmlly subscribes. Each Syndicate rarely extends over mere than a week or ten days, thus avoiding carrying over ex- pensos. which can only accrue in the event of a Syndi Cai-e being exceptionally kept open for anv special reasons. On the closing of Stocks, Subscibers receive dne notification, and cheques are promptly dispatched to each for his pro rata shire of profits added to the amount or his ongna) subscription. THis system of doing business has met with the dis- tinct approval of our clients, am', owing to the advan- tages it affords them, has tendered considerably to increase our connection. So far we have no reason to be dissatisfied with the result of our operations, seventeen out of nineteen Syndicates having realised handsome returns equal M nett a average profit of over 50 per cent. for each Syndicate, and viewing the difficulty attendant on successful Stock Exchange speculation, these results aiTvwe consider, highly satisfactory. We de not attempt to emulate various advertising Syndicate agents in making impossible profits out of abnormally small sums, nor do we subscribe to the equally absurd proposition of guaranteeing clicnts against loss. \Ve bring to bear on our business, upwards of ten years practical experience of the Stock Markets, and we do our bast to further our Clients interests. The Syndicate operations are always protected by a fair margin, and while we are content with reasonable profits, in the event of adverse market movements, losses are curtailed as far as possible. Trusting that a perusal of our letter will lead to your joining our list of Subscribers, LESLY AND CO., April, 1892. [990 PEP & CO., Timi38r.
