Notes from South Wales. (From our Special Correspondent.) Forward Movement. The Calvinistic Methodist Forward Movement is doing remarkably good religious and social work in South Wales. New halls are being continually built, and the services which are of a bright and helpful nature, are invariably well attended. Not Even a Calf. Chamberlain promised us three acres and a cow, but I have not even seen the calf yet. Dr. Gomer Lewis, Swansea. Not in the Market. Carnarvon Boroughs have proved that the conscience of Welshmen was not in the market." -Right Hon. Lloyd-George, M.P. British, Please. At a recent Liberal meeting in Aberystwyth, a local speaker continually referred to English politics." British politics, if you please. Not English. "Oh! Don't We!" Conservative Colonel at a political meeting in Whitchurch, Glamorganshire I don't think the people understand the question of Chinese labour." Chorus of voices in the hall: Oh don't we The Hungry Forties. If I were to place before the young people for the next two or three days the dinners their fathers had to eat in the forties, not a single man would vote Tory."—Mr. Tom Richards, M.P. The Position of the Welsh. Several of the Welsh educational authorities have decided to petition the Board of Educa- tion to restore the position of Welsh as a subject in the Code for 1907. There is no doubt that the Board will acquiesce. Christmas Presents. It is reported that there are still a large number of Christmas presents lying at the G.P.O. depot in London. They are there because they are insufficiently addressed. Are some of them from Wales, I wonder? The Servile Welshman. I was glad to note that Mr. Robert Thomas, one of the public speakers in the Carnarvon Boroughs election meetings, condemned the servile Welshmen who disowned their nationality." There are a good number of these "servile Welshmen" about, particularly in the "fashionable Welsh seaside resorts." Bravo, Llew! The election of 'Mr. Llewellyn Williams in Carmarthen Boroughs was exceedingly popular amongst patriotic Welshmen. Although not, perhaps, such a ready speaker as Mr. Lloyd- George, I consider Mr. Williams to be the best all-round Welsh M.P., as he wields a"facile pen in addition to having oratorical powers. Bravo, Llew Pob llwyddiant i chwi. A Smart Election Address. The most attractive election address I saw was the one issued by Mr. Timothy Davies, M.P. The frontispiece consisted of a picture of Walham Green Railway Station, with the words, Send Timothy Davies to Parliament on an up-to-date policy." And the genial and warm-hearted Welshman has arrived there too. Inconsistency. Mr. Morgan Richardson, the defeated Unionist candidate for Cardiganshire, some time ago, sold his residence known as Noyaddwilym, near Cardigan, to a party of French Roman Catholics. It was, consequently, highly amusing to hear Mr. Richardson telling an audience of New Quay people, how the Protestants of Ireland would be persecuted by the Roman Catholics of that country if Home Rule were granted. "Speit y Burgin." A few months ago, the writer of the leaderettes in the North Wales Conservative Gwalia strongly criticised the writer of the LONDON WELSHMAN'S "South Wales Notes" for having ventured to make some observations in reference to Lord Bute. They were, remarked the scribe of the Gwalia, "disgraceful," and animated by what was known in Wales as "speit y burgin." In last week's issue of Gwalia, there were two political cartoons of a most disgraceful nature. One depicted Barmyville Asylum." Behind the walls a cheerful idiot was represented as speaking as follows to a party outside Ain't you the Radical party ? I've heard about you. Come inside." One of the party represented a Nonconformist minister- According to this precious North Wales ha'penny weekly, it is the proper thing to ridicule the Nonconformist minister, but disgraceful to criticise a young monied lord. Gwalia bach Dangoswch dipyn o gysondeb, da chwi. Pedlar to Plutocrat. According to the writer of an interesting souvenir, quite a number of prominent Cardiff men have had a most romantic career, from poverty to affluence and honours. Two, at least, have attained to knighthood, the first entering Cardiff as a pedlar, and the second as a sailor lad from the Channel Islands. Another gentleman, whose business operations range from selling apples to creating a Welsh watering- place, is said to have first earned a living in this city by parading the streets with a pedlar's tray. Two young docks' clerks, a few years ago, resolved to start coal exporting, and, if rumour be true, very shortly shared one hundred thousand pounds between them. Unfortunately both have since passed away at quite an early age. The great firm of Cory Brothers, with depots all over the world, and a fabulous yearly income, was started by old Captain Cory in a little store somewhere near Custom House Street. British, Not English. The writer of Welsh Notes," in the Grocers' -Monthly, recently wrote as follows. The com- ment of the editor at the bottom is straight and to the point:—" The proprietors of the Maza- wattee shops advertised the opening of their four new branches in Cardiff by means of some very striking posters on the public hoardings. The shops are described as the most appetising in England.' The bills would, however, have been even more effective had the word Wales been added as well. Cardiff is in Wales, not England. It would startle some people in London if they knew how strong is the feeling of nationality in the Principality, and it is always well that projectors of new businesses in Wales should make due recognition of the fact. [If only English firms could be convinced that there is a strong resentment in Wales and Scot- land against the term English' when applied to things British' their business in both NATIONS might be strengthened. Ignorance of t) 9 British history rather than arrogance is account- able for the error.-Editor, G.M.]."
yr hen Sz'ors y'methu deall beth oedd i dd'od o'r Llyfr Emynau os taw truth felly oedd i gael ei ganu gan y gynulleidfa; a gwelai'r hen we'ydd yr achos y'myn'd i lawr, a da Llety'r Gors yn pori'r tir glas ar glos y capel, cyn pen blwyddyn, os rho'ent eu" cynsènt "i beth o'r fath. Sut bynag, cafodd Sam fwyafrif y diacon- laid a mwyafrif yr eglwys drosto. Ymroddodd iddi wed'yn, a chafodd yr hyfrydwch o wel'd caniadaeth y cysegr wedi gwella tu hwnt i'w ddisgwyliad trwy help y drefn newydd. Bu Pinion yn hir cyn medru cyhoeddi'r dosbarth, ac yn hirach cyn medru swnio'r gair Sol-ffa yn gyhoeddus. Nid wyf yn siwr iddo fedru ei goncro yn y diwedd. Ond bu llawer o gyrchu o ardaloedd eraill i'r dosbarth ac y mae yna lu o blant i'w hen ddisgyblion heddyw ar hyd a lied y wlad sydd yn ddyledus i Sam am eu gwybodaeth gerddorol. Pan fu Offt Tydu farw, gwnaed Sam yn ar- weinydd y gan. Ond ni ymchwyddodd, ac nid aeth i berthyn i glwb yr anffaeledigion, megis y mae arfer rhai. 0, yr oedd yn dret i chwi wel'd gwaith gras arno Pan aeth nifer y diaconiaid i lawr i dri, dewiswyd Sam atynt drwy bleidlais agored a brwd ond ni thyfodd fymryn talach, ac ni ledodd ei phylacter. Pan ar ei liniau, gweddiai fel pechadur, gan ofni Duw a pharchu dyn. Pan y siaradai yn y seiat, ni fanylai ar ei hen fywyd fel un f'ai'n cael bias ar adrodd ei hen gampau. Yn wir, prin ac ysgafn oedd ei gyffyrddiad a hwnw yn wastad; a phan y deuai ar ei draws, gwnai hyny i fawrygu'r gras a'i hachubodd, ac nid i chwyddo'r pechod yr achubwyd ef o hono. Cafodd dywydd garw dros ben cyn iddo gefnu ar y 'storom olaf. Aeth Susan yn aberth i'r geri marwol y'mhen wyth mlynedd ar ol iddi dd'od at grefydd ac aeth pengoch a penddu ar ei hoi. Ni fu Susan yn gymaint o help i Sam ag a fu Sam i Susan; ond ped awgrym- ech hyny iddo ef, byddech yn debycach o'i ddigio nag un ffordd arall. Y'mhen pum' mlyn- edd wed'yn, peidiodd y lefel lo lle'r oedd yn gweithio, a symudodd i'r gweithic.' Go brin o ddeunaw mis y bu o'i hen ardal cyn iddo dd'od yn ol ar ysgwyddau pobl eraill. Collodd ei fywyd mewn tanchwa, a chafodd fedd dan gysgod y Lloft Fach, yn ymyl ei anwyliaid oedd wedi blaenu, ac ar bwys y fan y gwnaeth Duw ac yntau gyfamod trag'wyddol a'u gilydd. Pan y gwelaf ac y clywaf rai pethau sydd yn peri i mi ameu gwaith gras ar eneidiau, taflaf fy ngolwg i'r fynwent gerllaw ac yno, yr ochr nesaf ataf, y gwelaf bedwar twmpath yn ymyl eu gilydd, lie y gorwedd Sam a Susan, pengoch a penddu. A chwyd Amheuaeth ei adenydd duon, a daw Gobaith i nythu dan y bondo yn ei Ie. (I'w barhaii).
