SERIOUS ACCIDENT IN THE HHONDDA. COLLAPSE OF A PORTION OF u\ NEW CHURCH. THREE MASONS INJURED. On Friday evening a fearful accident occurred at the St. Illtyd Church, which is being built at Williamstown, near Penygraig, whereby three workmen named William Bryant, residing at Caemawr, Penrhiwfer, and William James, about 170 years of age, and his son, Henry James, resid- ing at Upper Williamstown, sustained serious injuries. It appears that while the three tin- fortunate workmen were engaged near the belfry, about 24 feet above the base of the structure, the upper portion of the chancel forming the arch suddenly gave way, precipitating the poor fellows amid the dvbrix, which consisted of large stones, to the ground. It is estimated that tne section of the structure which collapsed weighed about 15 tons, two of the huge stone blocks weigh- ing aboat lOcwt. each. Bryant sustained a frac- ture of the skull near the base, William James a fracture of the leg a few inches above the ankle, and Henry, his son, had his collar-bone and two or three of his ribs broken. Dr. Weichert and Mr. Leicester, assistants to Dr. Davies, Penygraig, attended to the severe injuries of the hapless fellows soon after the accident. Bryant was quite insensible when he was got out from under the fall, and had not regained consciousness when inquiries were made as to his condition on Saturday afternoon.
A TRAMP ACROSS WALES. [BY THE REV. J. H. STOWELL. M.A.] X.—ASCENT OF CADER FFORDD—CORRIS—A DWARF RAT7AYAY—MACH- YNLLETH— GRAND SCENERY — A DANGEROUS WALK—LLANIDLOES. Cader Idris is some 600 feet lower than Snowdon. but it ranks second in reputation among the moun- tains of Wales for majesty of outline and beauty of situation. I found it in my road homewards, so I determined to climb to the top, although this bad not formed part of my original programme. Leaving the Gwernan Lake Hotel at 9.2011.111. on Wednesday, June 1st. I started, in the company of an old postman, to find what is known as the Bridle-path ascent. The morning was fairly bright, but a strong wind was blowing from the South-West. and the upper parts of the hills were enveloped in driving mist. I should have pre- ferred the shorter route known as the Foxes" Path, but my friend the letter-carrier would not hear of it. He knew every inch of the mountain, he assured me, and on such a morning the Foxes' Path would be too hazardous for any but the foxes themselves. And he went on te tell me a gruesome story (with a moral only too obvious) of a promis- ing but wilful young man just my build and my age and my complexion. who once insisted on going by that very route on a stormy day, and was found dead at the bottom of a precipice a few days later. So, feeling the good man wished me to think he had saved my life, I gave him a gratuity, indicat- ing a very modest estimate of its value, and took the Bridle Path he showed me. This soon led up a very steep shoulder of the mountain on to a large tableland where I found the path from Towyn, and that from Barmouth converged with my own. I was now partly in the mist, and ex- cepting in moments when the rush of dry white vapour seemed to exhaust itself and leave the ordinary atmosphere, I could see nothing. Tho experience was very similar to that of my ascent of Snowdon. Now and then vast stretches of low- lying country, with graceful sweeps of the hillsides and here and there a reeky chasm would open up only to vanish again like the baseless fabric of a vision. But the ascent was much easier than that of Snowdon. By 11 o'clock I had reached the -summit and stood on the top stone of the cairn grasping the remains of an old flagstaff, while the tempest roared, and. save for a few black stones, chaos seemed to have swallowed again all the beauty and order of earth. The postman's warning had included a recom- mendation to return by the same route as that by which I had come, but this I had no intention of doing. My route was towards Machynlleth, and according to my guide-book the most direct descent was a short, steep, and very rugged climb down to Llyn-y-Cae. This lake I had often heard of as a small, gloomy pool immediately below the summit of Cader Idris, and of a depth absolutely un- fathomed. Tracing my stejjs carefully for a little distance where slippery grass and loose ragged rocks in profusion made the greatest care necessary to avoid a headlong plunge into space, I came gradually into the fringe of the mist, and saw looming before me an awful perpendicular wall of rock, the top dis- appearing in the mist. and the bottom hardly to be discerned by the eye butJ knew that at the foot of that cliff the bottomless pool of Llyn-y-cae must be yawning. It was enough to make one careful, grasping an unsteady rock, on a slippery slope of 45 degrees, to know that anything like a festive lurch forward might terminate in the lake. So I went slowly, and the lake itself came quickly into view, and with a little patience I reached the pathway along its side in safety. Very grand is the huge inaccessible cliff that shelters two sides of this piece of water the sunlight and shadow playing upon it through the fitful mist produced indescribably strange and beautiful effects as I walked. A small stream runs from the eastern end of the lake, and this I followed down the valley towards the main road. Some white rocks strewn on the way caught my attention, masses of purest white, glistening like large snowballs, and at 1.15 p.m. I reached the bottom through a. ferny copse near MiniFordd farm in view of lake Talyllyn. I had thus been four hours, going a distance of some five miles but as much of the time had been spent in toilsome climbing it is not extravagant to reckon the four hours work equal to walking eight miles on level ground, and I claim this fair allowance in order to shew that on this particular day I broke the record of all my previous long dis- tance walking. At half-an-hour after midnight I was in Llanidloes, which, by exact measurement, is twenty-seven miles beyond Minfiordd, so that this day's walking amounted to thirty-five miles. As the afternoon progressed the mist cleared away from Cader Idris, and before the windings of the valley, through which my road now lay. had quite shut me out from the view, I had the same tan- talising retrospect as in the case of Snowdon- when I had left the mountain far in the rear the summit stood out in cloudless beauty, though when near or upon it my chief evidence of its existence was confined to my sense of touch. Three miles from Tallyllyn I came to Coivuis, where are great slate works and a miniature rail- way of 27-inch guage. Here a very lovely valley opens out, and I can imagine the delight af visitors traveling in the tiny tramcars along this railway from Machynlleth to Corris as they wind in and out of the unexpected turns, sometimes along an almost imperceptible overhanging ledge and some- times under quite an avenue of what, relatively to the size of the vehicles, must seem gigantic trees. The scenery with its diminished proportions along this Corris Valley -ceases to be grand and is merely pretty and, to preserve this prettiness, it is a capital idea of the railway company if there must be a railway, to make it all on a dimi- nutive scale. Huge locomotives roaring along this fairy glen would be intolerable, but the little puff puff with its little line of rails, and little signals, and little telegraph poles, and little stations, hardly makes more intrusion upon nature's calm than a child's -toy would. I pause for a moment in my tramp at a station called Llwvngcrn, and spoke to two little boys who were the only living beings I had come across for some miles. They were sitting on the station seat. One was nervous, apparently, at the apparition of a tourist, or else he had been up to some mischief, and thought it wise to take refuge in flight. But these boys seemed to com- plete the railway. A big man, a burly porter, or ticket-collector would have ruined the proportion of things entirely. I did wonder for a moment whether the artistic promoters of this railway had perchance provided dwarf officials to match, and •staring hard at the bolder youngster. I asked quite seriously, "Are you the stationmaster 1" "No, Sir," he replied solemnly, swaying from side to side as he sat upon his hands. Then you -ought to be," was my mental exclamation as I moved on. At five o'clock I reached Machynlleth, a somewhat straggling country town, famous ohiefly for being on the way to more beautiful places, and for the historic reminiscences of Owen Glendower and a Welsh Parliament he called to- gether here in the reign of Henry IV. I was now face to face with a difficulty that had occurred more than once before in my tramp I felt a strong -desire to continue walking, and there were several hours of daylight before me, but the next town on my route was considerably too far distant for me to readily undertake to reach it. In this case the distance, marked exactly by milestones, was full twenty miles, Llanidloes was at one end of that twenty and I at the other, and so far as I could ascertain, there was nothing but mountains and milestones between us. It seemed out of the question for me to undertake such a journey at the fag end of a day 'without even a solid meal to start me. As I ruminated on this problem, walking with the mechanical persistency of the Rotterdam merchant 'with the irreparable cork-leg to the outskirts of Machynlleth, Providence sent a milk-boy across my path fresh from his cows, and I purchased from him and drank on the spot a solid (if I may apply 11 solid" metaphorically to liquid) quart of new milk. If the courage that comes from drinking is rightly called Dutch courage, then, appropriately enough, along with the simile of the •cork leg I may borrow this metaphor from Hol- land to express the state of mind into which my drink put me. Certainly I saw marked on my map a dot described as inn two-thirds of the way to Llanidloes, and this was at first the limit of my ambition. But I little thought that I was doomed to pass this resting place by accident in the dark- ness fully cover the whole twenty miles that night. The evening had a cool and balmy air, that made walking a delight and banished all thoughts of weariness or danger at first. But the road was appallingly lonely. I began to get entirely away from the pretty and into the grand again. Upwards I went steadily for five or six miles till the hills tops began to show round me, and, looking back, the distant ranges of west and oorth and central Wales began to appear. Then I found myself actually upon a mountain a good road led across it very near to the summit, Rid very near on the other hand to a deep and long narrow gorge. From this high vantage- ground the most magnificent prospect of my whole tramp opened out to me. I suppose it was gome- thing like what I should have seen from Snowdon or Cader Idris if the air had been clear while I stood on their summits. Far around on every side there arose long ranges of hills, and to the north- west their gloomy and fantastic outline were brought into strong relief against the sky as the sun sank behind them. Although most people would have called me mad for landing myself alone at the top of a mountain, ten miles from anywhere, at sundown, I felt that my temerity had found a reward. That evening was un- doubtedly the crown and consummation of the holiday it was finer than anything I had yet ex- perienced. and after it no scene or adventure occurred that could compare with it. But the scenery soon disappeared, and as the shades of night closed around me I nerved myself for the adventure. Fortunately the road was a fairly good carriage-road not easily to be lost while any light, at all glimmered from the sky. Before it was quite dark I passed through a lead-mining village. chatting for a while with some of the miners, and going a little out of my way with them to see a rather striking waterfall. Then I pushed on at full speed through long lanes and across moors and past scattered cottages till it was pitch dark, and rain began to fall. It was as much as I could do to refrain from swearing at myself for an idiot but I thought of the cosy" inn" awaiting me a few miles ahead as I thought. But on, and on, and on I went, and no inn came in sight till I was nearly jeady to drop with exhaustion. At last I came to a farmhouse, and amid the bellowing of cows and barking of watchdogs, I hammered at the door until an old lady lighted a candle and put her head out of an upper window to know what was wanted. The inn," I gasped. It is about four miles away," she explained. Impossible, I thought. How far to Llanidloes?" "Three miles," she replied. Then it dawned upon me that I had come past the inn with- out recognising it. The old lady was by no means well-disposed to strangers, and would not let me enter her house to sleep, as I proposed, on the kitchen floor or anywhere else. So I trudged the remaining three miles into Llanidloes. The place was in black darkness, excepting where a light glimmered from one window. I made for that light, and tapped deferentially at the door. No reply. I tapped again, then a rustle, and a terrified woman's voice exclaimed, Who's there?" It was no use to explain. Can you tell me where the Black Lion Hotel is?" No." "Or any hotel 7" "No." "Or where I can get lodgings for the night?" "No." These monosyllabic replies were gasped out in such a frightened voice that I could only gather from them a most urgent invitation to go away. and so I went. Further up the street I saw another light, and this, to my relief turned out to be from the glowing fireside of a sensible and hearty working-man. who was sitting up late with some relatives who had come on a visit from Man- chester. He at once went with me to the various hotels, but we could not arouse the inmates, until at last at a small private Temperance," the hostess of which wsis well-known to him, I got what I wanted. With great kindness, this good lady lighted a blazing fire in her little kitchen, and made me cocoa and cooked some eggs and cut platefuls of delicious bread and butter, and finally bestowed me in a most comfortable bedroom. It was close upon 2 a.m. before I retired, but I slept well. (To be concluded.)
"THE CAUSE OF THE NEGLECTED." TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. Sir,—The letter of Albericus" in your last number is important, not for its sarcastic re- flections on the Churches but for its calling atten- tion to the need of work among the sailors, and for its offer of personal service. Let me make the practical suggestion he asks for. There is already in existence a commodious sailors' institute at the docks, under the superintendence of Captain Sharpies, and all that is required to make this a powerful agency in benefitting the sailors is the co-operation of a few" willing and eager workers, such as" Albericus." Let him go either alone or with Captain Sharpies each Sunday morning on board the vessels in dock, speaking with brotherli- ness and sympathy to the seamen. He will find a hearty welcome I do not doubt. And, further, if he is still eager and willing he may do much to entertain the sailors at the institute after inviting them to avail themselves of its reading-room and its services. Captain Sharpies is at present some- what out of health, and would be specially grateful, I believe, for any help in connection with his work. Also let Albericus collect from all his friends good literature in the form of magazines and books that can be presented to the sailors on leaving port to while away the tedium of their long voyages, and save them, it may be, from that mental and spiritual starvation which is the real cause of their frequent excesses when on shore. Then I would make one more suggestion. There are scores of ships' apprentices from sixteen to twenty years of age, many of whom come from refined and Christian homes, spending weeks amidst the soares and temptations of the town, friendless, and idle. Can "Albericus" find no oppor- tunity to-make the acquaintance of these youths? I know of some six or seven ladies who have offered to give a welcome at their own home to these lads on certain days of the week. There are very few apprentices, I should think, who would not highly appreciate an invitation to spend an hour or two and take a cup of tea, say on a Sunday afternoon, at the house of any hospitable Christian, Such practical religion as the invita- tion would show would prove the most effective preaching, for sailors are perhaps of all men the most responsive to kindness. The best way to reproach the churches for their apathy would be for Albericus to set a good individual example at any rate in the above or similar lines of work example is the best reproach. As for the letter of Christian Worker," I am sorry she is disheartened at having to work single- handed for the poor and needy, for I am beginning to find out that it is single-handed work that is most effective, and that it is the neglect of single- handed work that is at the root of general failure. A church, after all, is composed of indi- viduals, and the moment these individuals begin to tire and wish to merge their personal burdens in the general responsibility, the spiritual life of the church flags., Would to God there were more hard workers among Christians but let not the few faithful ones tire and begin to complain of their loneliness. No one was more lonely than the Master. My general reflection on reading these two interesting letters from your correspondents is that their offer of service, which is so difficult to sustain with genuine zeal and sincerity, is much more important than their tone of complaint, which is temptingly en,syat all times.—I am, &c. August 12th, 1892. J. H. STOWELL.
THE LAST BIT OF "LEGAL JOBBERY. Commenting on Mr. Bullen's appointment as le III, Revising Barrister, which we denounced in a recent issue of the SOUTH WALES STAR, the Carnarvon and Denbigh Herald says :—Mr. Justice Mathew has just appointed Mr. Bullen to the office of re- vising barrister for the South Wales District. This time last year, Mr. Justice Lawrence selected Mr. Robert Woodfall to do similar duty in the counties of Cardigan and Pembroke and West Carmarthen- shire. It is said that neither of these barristers has the least practical knowledge of the Welsh language. Nor have they been very long at the Bar. Mr. Woodfall is a brother-in-law of the present Lord Chancellor, and, hence, presumably, his appointment. On the South Wales Circuit there are several Welsh' barristers of- long stand- ing, and well acquainted not only with the ver- nacular, but also with the bilingual difficulties under which their countrymen labour, and it passeth all understanding that Mr. Justice Mathew should have ignored these gentlemen in favour of a non-Welsh-knowing member of the same circuit. It is surmised that Mr. Bullen is. like the judge who selected him, a Roman Catholic and for anything we know to the contrary, the conjecture may be a correct one. It will be remembered that some time ago the Lord Chancellor apointed Mr. Cecil Beresford to, a county court judgeship in Mid-Wales, and for no other particular reason than that Mr; Beresford was a godson of Lord Salis- bury's. His predecessor was Judge Bishop, whose knowledge of Welsh has always been a standing joke. In* North Wales, too, two out of the three re- vising barristers are Englishmen-the Hon. R. C. Grosvenor and F. Marshall—whilst the third, Mr. Thomas Jones, is for all practical purposes as non-Welsh-knowing as the two first-named gentle- men. Such, also, are the clerks of assize, Mr. Compton on the North Wales Circuit, and the Hon. Stephen Coleridge appointed by his own father, the Lord Chief Justice, on South Wales. We have always opposed the absurd and inconsist- ent cry of Wales for the Welsh," but equally in- consistent and quite as unfair is the practice of always foisting Englishmen, ignorant of Welsh, to lucrative posts in the Principality. It is high time something were done to put a stop to high- handed appointments of this sort in future, and we have no doubt that this last" job in South Wales has been already noted by some of our Welsh members, and that the attention of Parlia- ment will be called t» it. Until we have a bill to make such glaring favouritism impossible it is the duty of our representaves to expose the in- justice, and help to make all appointments of this character as unpopular with the public as they are scandalous in themselves.

FATAL ACCIDENT AT YNYSYBWL. A boy named Gwilym Nathaniel Davies, aged eleven years, met with a frightful accident on Thursday at the Lady Windsor Colliery, Ynysybwl. He appears to have been playing on the pit top, riding on the endless chain used for working the empty trams to the back of the pit bank, when his foot became entangled in a link, causing him to be drawn over the sheave. One of his legs was torn off below the knee-joint, and he sustained other SEvere injuries which resulted in his death. Dr. M'Crechie was immediately on the scene of the accident, and did everything to alleviate the suffer- ings of the poor little fellow.
LLEW LLWYFO. Many of our readers will grieve to learn that the celebrated Welsh bard, literateur, and musician. Llew Llwyfo, after weathering many a storm during the last decade, has at last been compelled to seek refuge in the workhouse At the last meeting of the St. Asaph Board of Guardians, the Rev. T. F. Williams expressed his sorrow at finding that Liew Llwyfo, one of the ablest sons of Wales, was an inmate of the workhouse.-The Master, in reply to a guardian, said that the Bard was ad- mitted into the house on the order of the Denbigh relieving officer.

¡ PONTYPRIDD LOOAL, BOARD AND THE' BARRY RAILWAY COMPANY. At the meeting of the Pontypridd Local Board held on Friday last a letter was read from the Rev. Theophilus Rees, of Pentyrch, having regard to the difficulty of getting the Barry Railway to run passenger trains along their main line, and asking whether it would be wise for him to write directly to the Barry directors, requesting them to receive a deputation from the Board.— Mr. James did not see why the Board should spend money in opening up a rail- way for other people.-The Chairman thought it would be better if Mr. Rees took that matter into his own hands.—Mr. Roberts stated that he was informed that the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board intended moving in the matter as well. and would probably co-operate with the Pontypridd Board but. in any case, even if no other Board agreed to help them, they ought to undertake the question even if they had to spend I a sum of money to compel the Barry Company to fulfil their obligations. By so doing they were benefiting the public of Pontypridd. and doing im- mcnse service to the town by opening a hitherto virgin district.—Mr. Lenox If we go to law and win the case, the company will have to pay costs.- Mr. Snape thought that the people of Barry and Cadoxton would reap the greater benefit, and it would be only fair to expect them to bear a part of the cost.—The Chairman remarked that he had arranged with Mr. Rees to take the matter up, and, on the motion of Mr. Roberts, it was resolved that the clerk should write to that gentleman, and also communicate with the clerk of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board asking their co-operation id the matter.
YSTRAD POLICE COURT. MONDAY.—Before Mr. E. John (chairman), Mr. D. W. Davies, Alderman W. Morgan, and W Jenkins. A WARNING TO FINDEBS.—At the Ystrad police-court William Williams, a fish dealer, living at Porth. was cliarged with stealing a parcel, con- taining an ulster Valued at 25s., the property of the Taff Vale Railway Company. Mr. James Phillips appeared for the defence. The evidence was to the etYect that on the previous Tues- day. John Evans. a railway porter, was delivering parcels in a hand-truck at Llwyny- pia. when the parcels in question, which was addressed to Mr. D. Watkins, draper, Tony- pandy. fell out on the road. Soon afterwards the defendant passing in a cart, picked up the parcel and drove on to Porth. He was seen picking up the parcel by a showman, named North, who gave information to the station- master at LlWynypia.—Police-constable W. Ivins. in the evening, visited defendant's house at Porth. Defendant at once admitted having picked up the parcel, and produced the ulster. He had, he said, intended advertising for the owner. It was alleged for the prosecution that the parcel was legibly addressed, and that the defendant passed the porter's truck after finding the parcel, and that he must have known he had missed it -The Bench considered there was sufficient evidence to convict, and fined the defendant 20s. VIOLENT ASSAULT ON THE POLICE.—John Thomas Jones, collier, Wattstown, was charged with violently assaulting Police-constable Hopkins on the 13th inst. Defendant was a principal in a fight that day, when the officer appeared on the scene and conducted him away some distance up the road. The policeman then returned to the crowd, when looking back he found that the defendant was returning. Hopkins proceeded to meet him, when his helmet fell off. As he was in the act of stooping to pick it up, the defendant dealt him a fearful blow on the head with a glass bottle, which was shivered to atoms. An ugly wound on the top of the head was indicted.—The prisoner was sent to prison for a month with hard labour. He was further ordered to pay the costs, or in default to be imprisoned for a further term of 14 days. FALSE PRETENCES.—James Brown, a mason's labourer, charged with obtaining by false pretences various sums of money, amounting to 9s. 6d.. from David Lloyd, grocer, Ystrad, was sentenced to a week's imprisonment with hard labour. ASSAULT WITH A COLLIERY LAMP.—Richard John Edmunds, Tynewydd, was summoned by David Lloyd Morgan with wounding him on the 30th of July last, by striking him on the head with a safety lamp. Mr. H. W. Spowart appeared for the defence. The defence was that the blow was inflicted in sclf-defence.-Prisoner was sen- tenced to 14 days with hard labour, and further ordered to pay £ 3 costs.
THE FATAL RAILWAY ACCIDENT NEAR PETERSTONE. INQUEST AND VERDICT. The inquest touching the death of the man (un- known) whose body was found on the Great Western Railway near St. George's on Wednesday evening, was held at the Green Down Cottage Inn. St. George's, on Friday (before Mr. H. LI. Grover, deputy borough coroner).- David Rees, a son of the landlady of the Green Down Cottage Inn, stated that he had seen the body of the deceased, and from the clothing and other appearances he believed it to be that of a man who called at the inn on the previous Wednesday evening at about half-past seven, and was served with a glass of beer. He left in a few minutes in a perfectly sober condition. About two hours later, in; consequence of what he was told by a Great Western Railway porter, he went over to the railway, which is opposite his house, and saw the body lying inside the rails on the down line, a little distance below a level cross- ing.—George Allen, a groom, living at The Drope, gave evidence as to the discovery of the body at abont 9.35 on Wednesday evening. He gave informa- tion. and the body was afterwards removed to the Castle Farm.—Joseph Gibbs, an engine-driver in the employ of the Great Western Railway Station, and living at Bristol, stated that on the night of the occurrence he drove a mixed train of goods and empties from Bristol to Carmarthen Junction. The train passed through St. George's, where the body was found at about 9.30. He was then driving at about eighteen miles an hour. He had no idea that the train had passed over anything. When he got to Bridgend, in accordance with the usual cus- tom. he examined the engine for oiling, and then noticed a small piece of bone on the brake cylinder between the engine and the tender. There was also some blood on the leading rail-guard on the right side and a small piece of cloth on the rail- guard in front. It was very dark that night, as the moon did not rise until between nine and ten. Police-sergeant William Jones, Canton, stationed at St. Nicholas, said that, immediately on hearing of the occurrence, he went to the Castle Farm, and there examined the body. It was appa- rently that of a navvy about 50 years of age, with grey hair, and wearing a beard of about a week's growth. He wore a pair of dark, large- ribbed trousers, an old plaid double-breasted waistcoat, a dark cloth jacket and a soft billycock hat. He also had on a flannel shirt and large heavy-nailed boots, almost new. On the body he found a tobacco pipe and box, and two pocket- handkerchiefs. The tobacco box bore the name E. Clark, Crwys Hotel, Cardiff." The right arm was completely cut off at the shoulder. Witness had entirely failed to obtain evidence as to the identity of deceased. He believed he had seen the man before, but did not know who he was.—The jury returned a verdict of •' Accidental death," and exonerated the company from all blame. THE BODY INDEXTIFIED. The body of the deceased has since the inquest been identified as that of William Jones, labourer, who has recently been residing at 23, Railway- street, East Moors, Cardiff. The identification was made by the deceased's landlord.

BRIDGEND FOOTBALL CLUB. The annual meeting of the Bridgend Football Club was held in the Town Hall on Tuesday evening. Mr. J. Cox presiding'. There was a good attendance. The Chairman said it. was for the meetinar to decide as to whether or not the club should be continued. It was useless keeping the club on unless they had a fair prospect of being- successful as regards the finances, and in having a good number of members. It would not be fair to other clubs to make engagements with them and then not be able to carry them out. It would not only give the secretary a lot of unnecessary labour. but would make themselves look foolish all round. —Mr. Bradshaw (secretary) then read the accounts. The receipts were:—Hon. subs., £5 13s. members, £14- 7s. 6d. gate money, £26 2s. lid. sundries. £ 1 6s. received on account of jerseys from members. £ 2 IS*. sale of tickets for dinner, £4 10s. total, £;;4 17s. 5d. The payments included ,( G 18s. 6d, for field expenses; £ 17 15s. 7d. for train fares and players' fxpenses £6 12s. 9d. for jerseys £4 17s. Gd for dinners. The balance in hand was £1 2s. 3d. These items included some old accounts, and the total income of the club last season was £ 54 17s. 5d., and the payments for the same period £ 50 17s.—The accounts were unanimously passed, on the motion of Mr. G. Verity, seconded by Mr. Schofiel,1.In answer to questions, the Secretary said that he believed they could have the same field again this year.— The Chairman said that the real question was, were they likely to have a strong club—a club worthy of Bridgend.—On the motion of Mr. Schofield, seconded by Mr. Fell, it was resolved to carry on the club. as the same men were available and the same field.—Messrs. T. Stock- wood and W, R. Randall were re-elected president and vice-president of the club respectively, and Mr. E. Emery was then selected to again be the captain of the club, the chairman commenting upon the excellent manner in which Mr. Emery had captained the club last season. Mr. Emery, however, declined to act, on account of his busi- ness engagements, and Mr. J. James and Mr. Fell were then nominated, Mr. Fell being de- clared elected captain. Mr. Fell having briefly returned thanks, the following officers were ap- pointed :—Vice-captain, Mr. J. James: treasurer, Mr. S. II. Stockwood secretary, Mr. G. Verity committee. Messrs. W. M. Richards, R. C. Griffiths. J. Cox, E. Emery, T. 'Francis, T. Verity. A. Gregory, E. Davies. W. B. Gregory, and J. Gregory. Match committee, Messrs. A. Gregory, E. Emery. J. Cox, and W. Bradshaw captain of the second fifteen, R. Gregory. Mr. Bradshaw stated that home and home matches had been arranged with Llandaff, Cardiff A," Aberavon. and Morristown. Neath would not give them a match at Bridgend, but would play them at Xeath on half-gate terms, which proposal he had declined. A number of other clubs had written, and further fixtures would be arranged by the committee. A vote of thanks to the chairman concluded the meeting.
NANTYMOEL NOTES. In these days when people want anything from great corporations or companies, they have, as a rule, to agitate for it again and again. There are many things which are wanted in Nantvmoel and Tynewyrld even yet. The Local Board and the School Board have done good work in the district, but there is still scope for further improvements. The worst thing about the demand for an improved condition of things, is that improvement as a general rule costs, money, and whilst all are agreed as to the necessity for improvements being effected, all are not by any means agreed as to who should meet the necessary expenditure. Many instances of the reluctance which people feel as to parting with H s. d. will at once occur to every one. In matters of public interest, we in this district, have lately had an example of it in the case of the paving. An outsider might imagine from what has appeared in print, that the Local Board had done everything—footpaths and the street paving as well. But a visit to this locality on a wet day will speedily undeceive any who may entertain such a notion. I am afraid' that the difficulty which the Local Board has had to contend with (and, as yet, contends with) will act as a deterrent to that body initiating any comprehensive schemes of local im- provements for the present. If that is the result of the action of certain property owners, it will be a result that will injuriously affect all living in the Board's district,.as well as everyone who has occa- sion to pay it a visit. The Great Western Railway Company has earned a good reputation (as railways go) for meeting, as far as possible, the convenience of the public. Lately they have been expending a considerable amount of capital in the (Umore Valley in pro- viding better siding accommodation, &e. This, no doubt, is a great advantage, and largely facilitates the arrival of goods by rail. But it is one thing to have the goods at the railway station, and another thing to have them delivered at their des- tination. At most centres now the company have provided horses and drays to deliver goods within a certain radius free of charge, and it is some arrangement of this sort which is lacking at Xantymoel. I venture to assert that Nantmoel is quite as important a commercial centre as many others at which the company have stationed a dray for the purpose of delivering goods, and it might probably pay the shopkeepers to combine and approach the company wiha view of obtaining such an arrangement here. The Nantyrnoel females;i?whoi ifigured in the Bridgend Police Court did not, I should imagine, derive much satisfaction from the decision of the Bench. A few weeks ago in these notes I recom- mended the ladies in question to settle their little disagreements privately, and not in the public thoroughfares. This is another sad instance of good advice not being followed, and as a result the parties named have suffered by having to hand over a sum of money to the Clerk to the justices in satisfaction of certain costs. It would pay them far better to spend their money in purchasing good literature and newspapers than to purchase the papers sold by the magistrates—viz., sum- monses.
DINAS POWIS HOilTICULT URAL SHOW. We wish to draw the attention of our readers to the fact—advertised elsewhere in this issue—that a first-class flower show will be held at Dinas Powis on Wednesday next. The Dinas Powis Hor- ticultural Society was started only this year. under the presidency of General Lee, with Mr. D. T. Alexander as its vice-president, and. although so young a society, we may safely venture, to pre- dict that the show to be held on the 24th will prove very attractive and compare favourably with older institutions in the neighbourhood. Those who know the district will confess that it would be hard to find a spot more calculated to ensure the success of such a function than Bryneithin. kindly placed at the disposal of the society by its genial proprietor. Mr. D. T. Alexander. The en- thusiastic committee arc unsparing in their pains to make the affair a marked success, and have engaged the bard of the Severn Divi- sion of the Submarine Miners, under the leadership of Bandmaster Mr. J. Matthews, and a band of such reputation needs no words of ours, but will doubtless attract many. They have catered most liberally, and provided the celebrated harpist, Ap Pearce, to give his delightful selections. III addition Mr. Gay, of the Glamorganshire Bee- keepers' Association, will give demonstrations on bee culture, and be ready to instruct and advise any who are interested therein. The refreshment de- partment has been placed under the capable manage- ment of the Misses Harry, of Barry Dock, who have a reputation for first-class quality and style. The interestjdisplayed by the residents of the neigh- bourhood promised well for an excellent collection of nature's gifts, and it is expected that the cottagers' exhibits will be largely augmented by contributions from the lacal gentry, and the lead- ing florists of Cardiff and Penarth. We would earnestly impress upon all not to miss this oppor- tunity of a most enjoyable day in a charming country district, and at the same time to help forward a society which is doing its utmost for the promotion of the welfare, comfort, and advance- ment of the working man.

CORRESPONDENCE. THE POLITICAL OUTLOOK. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR.—As one deeply interested in the political affairs of Wales. I have been keenly watching the proceedings of the parties in the House of Com- mons during the last few days. Speaking as a Welshman I must frankly express my disappoint- ment. Whilst the recent electoral contest was being fought we were all led to think that it was an understood thing that Welsh Disestablishment was to be the second item in the Liberal pro- gramme of reforms, as put forth in the Newcastle programme. The election is now over. Wales has once more given a decided and almost unanimous expression of her desire for Disestablishment, by returning members, all of whom are pledged to it, with the exception of three. Bit in what position stands Welsh Disestablishment now! I fear very much that it is relegated to the back- ground. First of all the one man one vote question was put on a par with Disestablishment, and we were led to understand that the measures were going to be brought in together: then a prior position was claimed for industrial questions, and now, as I said before, Welsh Disestablshment has been quite put out in the cold. Now, Sir, I read your leader on the sub- ject in the STAR a few weeks ago. and I was pleased to think that you were far-sighted enough to grasp the situation, and to see how things reallv stood. The Welsh members and the Welsh people are too ready to allow their good-nature to blind them to the exigencies of their surroundings. They place too much reliance on Mr. Gladstone's pronounce- ment that Disestablishment is a local question. They seem to forget the fact that Mr. Gladstone is a devoted adherent of the Church of England, and I believe, some few years ago when he was approached and interrogated on the matter of the English Church Dises- tablishment. he informed his interrogators -)rs that the Disestablishment of the English Church would never be undertaken by him. Whether Mr. Gladstone regards the Welsh and English Churches as integrally the same, it is not for me to say but.as you said in last week's leader, theqnes- tion of where the Welsh Chu rch dominion commences is a moot one. The English Church, of which Mr. Gladstone is a devoted son, will oppose the Welsh Disestablishment to the bitter end, and Mr. Gladstone will require a lot of pressure, you will find, before the real work of Welsh Disestablish- ment is commenced. Words are very cheap, and Mr. Gladstone is an adept at making ambiguous promises, and unless now, when practically the balance of power rests with the Welsh members, they block all legislation after Home Rule is once passed, we shall once more be left entirely behind in the lurch. The South Walex Radical puts the unvarnished truth before Wales, when speaking of the resolu- tion passed by the Welsh M.P.'s last week, it says :—" We regret that we cannot give unstinted praise to the resolution passed by the Welsh Parlia- mentary party this week. It is the old policy again—loud assertion of the Welsh demand for Disestablishment coupled with meek obedience to the arrangements of the Liberal leaders. Fancy the Irish party in its fighting- days volunteering a pledge of thick-and thin support to a Government which was absolutely nnpledged to do anything for Home ltule. Yet that is what it comes to. Resolutions passed by the gatherings at ShEffield and Newcastle have merely a moral force. Mr. Gladstone is not committed to active exertion on behalf of our claim. No one in London except the Welsh members takes Disestablishment seriously or dreams of it as forming part of the work of the present Parliament." Mr. Williams, M.P., said at the Liberal dinner several Saturdays ago at Barry Dock, that by sticking together we shall be able to get what we have so long fought for. That is all right as far as it goes, but it does not go far enough. We should insist upon knowing from the Liberal leaders what their views on the subject are, and we ought not to rest until the Disestablishment of the Church in Wales is definitely put down on the Parliamentary programme. Wales stands nearest to our hearts, and I hold that National affairs take precedence of party politics. Then, again, in your before-mentioned leader you ask what is to become of the tithes. I looked several times to see if I read aright. I am perfectly satisfied that the Church shall keep the fabrics, but when you talk of the tithes that is another matter. Tithes were originally levied for a specific purpose-the sup- port of a State Church. When you do away with that Church you do away with the necessity of the tithes, and you will find that the farmers will as strongly resist the payment of tithes in the future as ever they have done in the past. The farmers have quite sufficient to do to make both ends meet without paying tithes for any purpose. The land ought to be exempted from all charges of this nature that capital doesn't pay. Who would think of going to the mechan'c and artisan and taxing the means and tools by which they earn their daily bread. Were such a thing attempted we should have a revolution in the country in a very short time yet here we see men calling themselves Radicals presuming to tax the land by which so many people earn an oft-time meagre living by the sweat of their brow, inde- pendently of the just charges for drainage and poor law purposes. I hope on this question you will use that far-sightedness of yours, look at the tithe question from a common place point of view, and indulge in no hopes of what good may be done by turning the tithes to a national utilization, because no sensible farmer of my acquaintance thinks of paying tithes to any such scheme. Apologising for occupying so much of your valuable space, I am, &c.. OUTIS, JUN. Barry Dock, 16th August, J 892. SCARCITY OF WATER AT BRYNMEXIN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "SOUTH IWALES STAR. SIR,—In your last week's issue I observed that a Ratepayer complained of the scarcity of water at this place. Being an old resident I firmly believe that we supply more owing to our wells being dried up in the summer than anyone would imagine. May I be allowed to ask all inhabitants to meet next Monday afternoon on the Common, close to the Brynmenin Hotel, so that we may test whether the majority are in favour, or not. of being supplied with clean water by the Ogmore and Garw Water Company. Having the pen in hand kindly allow me to call the proper authorities' attention to the beastly state in which some houses are kept here. Also, it is a common practice by some of the occupants to keep a heap of nuisance about their doors for days, and still worse, there are from six to eight persons residing at some of these houses with only one room upstairs and one down, which should not be allowed. Is this not a disgrace to a civilised nation.—I am, &c. AN OLD RESIDENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. Sm,- Would you allow me a space in your valuable paper to endorse the remark of "Rate- payer in your last issue in reference to the water supply and the lighting of the Abergarw road in winter. It is time we have a local Board, but whether we are anything the better remains to be answered. 'I quite concur with ;i Ratepayer" in his refer- ence to Mr. William John, Blaengarw. We should be very glad to hear that the host of Bryngarw House had taken the matter in hand. because I am convinced that the zeal, ability, and integrity of Mr. John would be the means of awakening and convincing the gentlemen of your Local Board that we, the inhabitants of the extreme end of the parish, are, to a certain extent, ignored. In reference to the water supply, it is a com- modity which we cannot dispense with it is one of the first requirements of nature, and with a private company close by with a good supply of pure water, it is hard lines upon ratepayers to have to trudge long distances before obtaining what we think ought to be brought within easy reach of every householder. Also with regard to lighting the road from bridge to bridge to bridge, what water is in sum- mer (a blessing) light is in winter. Our road is so narrow, and banks so high, and there is so much traffic that it is quite dangerous for young children and elderly persons to travel after dusk. I would net dictate to that body of gentlemen how many lamps to erect, but leave them to take their own course. I only wish them to grant us the privilege of paying for our own lights, as well as paying for them at the top of the Valley.-I am, &.c., A HOUSEHOLDER. Abergarw, Brynmenin.
