I ABERDARE NOTES. tHy ARUIS]. If the Welsh language is dying at Pontypridd, it is not, at any rate, the case at Aoernant, Hirwain, Trecynon, and Cwmdare. At those places Welsh is very extensively spoken, and it is not an unfrequent thing to hear 80 per cent. of the children speak the language of the mountains whilst coming hom school. Our athletic friend, Mr. Arthur B. Manning, is no* in strict'training. We may hear of him figuring in the Good Friday Sports at Cardiff, and he may also j turn out at Manchester, or Nottwham, at Easter. The offer of Mr. Davies, solicitor, to provide J3100, I if nine other gentlemen will du the same, towards procuring a proper cycling track at Aberdare, was a ] very magnanimous ene. Such a track id greatly required. Will some nine gentlemen respond ? The many friends of the former Vicar of Al>erdare, the Rev. Bowen Jenkins, will be pleased to learn that his brother, Mr. Lawrence Hush Jenkins, will suc- ceed Mr. Justice Pigot at the High Court of Calcutta. He was educated at Oxford, and has practised at the bar for some years. He if, of course, a thorough Welshman. Welshman. There is no truth in the statement that a man was rescued from drowning in Nith-street the other even- I ing. It is, however, true that there was a very high tide," but there was no occassion to call out the lifeboat. They say that Welsh m dying: Anyway, there was a man at the police-court on Tuesday, who told the magistrates that he could not stieak any English, He was allowed to tell his story in pure Cymraeg. Mr. B. Thomas, photographer, Aberdare, has decided to present the conductor of the successful male voice party at Mountain Ash Eisteddfod with his (the conductor's) portrait in black and white, with frame complete. "Dear Argu*,—Don't yon think that the inhabi- tants of Albert-street, Wind-street, Upper Regent- street, and Bond-street, should unite in tunning a candidate for the District Council, who would make it his business to further the improvement of those much neglected portions of the town ? He would, of course, be known as the member for Mudville?" Mr. Tudor^Williams, one of the candidates at the forthcoming Council election, has very properly drawn attention to the need of a public library in the town, and baths at the Park. These are two very important questions, and, if carried out, would confer incalculable benefit upon the townspeople. Members of the theatrical profession often go through some curious experiences. A recent company did not take at all in Aberdare, and, as a result, the members got "stranded." The electors of the Gadlys and Llwydcaed Wards evidently mean business. At the meeting last week at Bethet they bombarded the outgoing councillors with a regular fusilade of questions. All manner of queries were made. Why did the Council appoint an Englishman and Englishwoman as caretakers of the Hospital ? Why was an inspector appointed for the new waterworks Why did the Council appose the new Railway Bill ? &c. This shows that the electors of these wards are taking an interest in the policy of the Council. And it is only right that they should do so. Mr. George came through the ordeal well. He explained that the new Railway Bill alluded to was opposed owing to the Sewage Farm. The reason that the English people were appointed caretakers at the Hospital was owing to the fact that no Welsh people had applied who were trained." The inspec- tor referred to was appointed before he (Mr. George) was on the Council. Here are a few questions which a ratepayer from the West End would like that superior body, the District Council, to answer :—Int.- Why is a copy of the financial statement for the year showing the Council's receipts and expenditure not sent to every ratepayer? And why are the Mcrthyr papers not allowed to tender for the publication of the statement in their columns ? 2nd.—Why are a large number of houses left without troughing, so that the rain is poured on one's head! 3rd.—Why are buckets ef tilth and ashes allowed to remain in the streets all the morning as in Seymour-street last Monday for example ? 4th.W7hy are some of the irons which support the awnings over the shop windows placed so low as to catch in one's hat? 5th.—Why aen't the Council go in for a scheme for lighting the town with the electric light, and thereby be up-to-date?
