FATHER AND TWO SONS DROWNED. The Prase Association's Marlow corres- pondent telegraphs:—A terrible bathing fa- tality occurred early on Monday morning near Marlow. It appears that a camping party, consist- ing of Mr. J. S. Gilbert, of 23, Stile Hail Gardens, Ken&u. jfton, with his two sons and two friends, pitched their tents and camped last Sunday night between Medmenham and Hurley, and on Monday morning they pre- pared to bathe, all being swimmers. One of the sons, Mr. F. A. Gilbert, aged about 20, f-rst swam across the river, and on the way back he called out that he felt tired. Then within a few feet of the bank he sank in deep water. His father, who was a man of about fifty years of age, at once plunged in, partly dressed, to ihe rescue, as also did young Gilbert's brother, X-. G. Gilbert, aged about 22. Neither rose to the surface again, and another mem- ber of the rty plunged in, and although this gentleman brought air. Gilbert, senior, to the :arface, he was unable without c..5- sistance to get him to the bank. When help was eventually procured, SO minutes later, the bodies were all recovered, but attempts to restore respiration failed. There --a no sign that the bodies had been entangled in weeds.

"DISGUSTING ACCUSATIONS n AT LLANELLY. EXTRA ORDINAR Y A LLE GATTONS AGAINST A SWANSEA WOMAN. SEVERE EXAMINATION IN A MAIN- TENANCE CASE. At IIanelly on Monday an application was made by Catharine Arthur, 84, Baptist Well- street, Swansea, to vary an order of main- tenance made against her husband, William Arthur, junior, butcher, Swansea-road, Llanelly. Mr. T. R. Ludford appeared for the defendant, and the applicant was repre- sented by Mr. Hy. Thompson, Swansea. Mr. Thompson explained that the parties had been marr twelve years, and there was one child. There had been a mainten- ance order in existence for 6s. a week since a year after the marriage, and he now &p- pli, for an increased order on account cf defendant's improved position. Mm. Arthur stated that she had been try- ing to keep herself by means of a little shop, ind was unsuccessful. Her husband's posi- tion was nc-w much better than at the time of the order. Cross-examined by Mr. Ludford, You have managed on 6s.?—I existed. It was not. living. Were you drinking this morning?—No. Have you been to the Waterloo?—Yes, I had a lemonade. Do you know the Butts in Swansea?—No. Did not that man there (pointing to some- one in oourt) see you have a whisky and soda?—No. Mr. Thompson did not think the cross- examination should continue in that way. Mr. Ludford said the Bench should go into the fiacts and ascertain the kind of life he woman leading. If it were e,nnd that she was not leading a respectable life the Bench should not increase the order, because it would only mean sending her headlong to ruin. Have peopl-s seen you coming out of "No. lO?"-No, I know the place. Have you been to the Mariners, Burry Port, with Mrs. Morgan, who is Jso known as Mis. Herbert and Mrs. Hyat, and driven tr her bouse in a state of intoxication?— No. You were oot nursing at Llanelly?—Yes. Did you leave because you were drinking? —No. Mr. Thompson Was your husband not al- ways very jealous?—Yes. Did he send someone to make a suggestion to you?—Yes. You indignantly turned the man away?— Yes. Mr. Ludford contended that he had no case to answer. Mr. Thompson said they had to oonsader the question of the position of the husband, and not the applicant's mode of living. Mr. Ludford said the woman had been away for seven months without giving an account oi herself. William Arthur said his income amounted to JB1 a week. He received 15s. a week and keep at home, and JB16 per annum from an interest in a farm. The business was owned by his father and mother. He was in the same position now as in 1904. 1-i further re-examination witness said ce couldn't prove that his wife had been un- faithful. He did not send a relative to the house with a view of getting his wife to compromiee herself. David Da vies, cabdriver, was then called, but couH net identify Mrs. Arthur as one of the women that was in the cab. Mr. Thompson said that was the kind if evidence the defendant brought forward :n support of tue disgusting accusations "le made against his wife. Mis. Williams, 62, Marble Hall-road, stat- ed that she engaged Mrs. Arthur as a nurse. By Mr. Ludford When in the house did she bring in drink and drugs? Mr. Thompson: I object to the question. The Bench eventually increased the order from 6s. to 10s. per week.

"If they could send him to a lunatic asylum, that would be the proper thing to do. But they had not the power. If they sent him to prison a hundred times, ne would still be just the same." The case was adjourned for two months to give Phillips a chance.
Ii. TRUEMAN'S ACCUSATIONS. RUNS A TILT AT NEATH'S HEAD CONSTABLE. MAGISTRATES' CLERK COMPLAINS OF INSULT. Just as the proceedings at the Neath Police Court had commenced w. Monday Mr. G. R. Trmeman asked the justices to allow him to mention an appeal for the refusal of the Head Constable to grant him a pedlar's certificate. Clerk: All applications will be made at the conclusion of the court. Mr. Trueman: Thi* is not an application but an appeal, due notice of which has bean given Clerk. Don't interrupt the proceedings of the court. Mr. Trueman: I am desirous of knowing when this appeal will be heaj-d. Head Constable: The appeal will be beard the end of the list. Whesa the ordinary cases had been dis- posed of Mr. Trueman said that on the 18th of Julv he made application first to P.S. Hig- gins, who courteously declined to grant the certificate in the absence of the Head Con- stable. He waited until the latter re- turned, and he absolutely Tiefused and would ive no grounds. "Before I oaJI evidence m this case I must." continued Mr. True- man, "finally object to Mr. Hopfcin Jones sitting on the Bench. He is biassed." Clerk: If you are going to object to Mr. Hopkin Jones adjudicating and he chooses to retire tor his own convenience, you wir have no court to make your p—>li- caiioii to, as there ars only two justices. Mr. Trueman: I am trying to keep myself within the four comers of the law, and Evan Lewis is anxious to apprehend me and send me to Swansea. Mr. Trueman said he would waive his objection to the constitution of the court, and make his application. Mr. Trueman then read the notice in, which reflections wona made upon the Head Constable, a.nd in which it is stated that the refusal was grounded on malice, and that the retention of the Head Constable by the Watch Committee was not in the interests of eobriety and morality. Clerk: You don't think that nonsense of that kind will benefit your appeal do you ? Mr. Traeman: I shall put the Head Can- should go into the box. Clerk: I see no reason why Mr. Lewis should go into the box. Mr. Trueman: The law says so. Clerk: What is the law ? Trueman: I am turned out of the Market. and I am —— Clerk: All that is nothing bet gallery. Mr. Trueman If you had to go there and lie on a plank bed for a month you would not say it was gallery. The "Head Constable: Oh, I will go into the becc. rk: You understand, Mr. Trueman, you must confine yourself to the subject of this certificate. Mr. Trueman I know that every attempt will be made to cover the Head Constable. Mr Trueman: Did you receive an a.p- plication from me for a pedlar's Yes, a verbal one. Did you make a note of the dater-yes, i, mental one. Mr. Trueman: Your mental faculties are sometimes obscured You refused the application. Upon what grounds?—Fjrs+, because you are not a man of good character, and secondly I considered that you were not going to carry on bonafidely the occupa- tion of a pedlar. J Mr. Trueman: I say he has not given the reel grcunds of his refusal. Clerk: You must take his answers. Mr. Trueman persisted in putting other quest iocs, whereupon the CLerk exclaimed "1 am doing my duty and will not be in-1 suited." Mr. Trueman: WeU I will withdraw. It's the effect of a month's imprieoffimeait in Swansea. Mr. Trueman (to Mr. Lewis): Were TOO aware that I was selling photographs con- taining yours?—Yes, and so was everyone else. After further queatkms Mr. Trueman asked the Head Constable: What relation had the photograph, do you know, to the gentleman sitting in the chair (meaning the Mayor) ? Clerk; Don't answer the question. It is simply impertinence. The Ma. The appeai is dismissed.
EXCITING SCENE AT THE I MUMBLES. PROMPT ACTION AVERTS A DISASTER. BOAT-LOAD OF PEOPLE IN PERIL. A pilot cutter, belonging to Port Talbot, having a number of passengers for the Mumbles aboard, on approaching the Mum- bles Head on Saturday afternoon, lowered her punt, into which seven or eight persons, including two children, were discharged. 1 The punt was then taken in tow, but the cutter, sailing too fast, drew the smaller boat under wiber, and she commenced to fill rapidly. The occupants shouted out loudly tothoee on the cutter to "cast off," but presumably this was unheard. However, their peril was realised by a Mumbles boatman named Thomas Ace, who promptly went to the rescue, as did also Jaspar Williams, light- house keeper, whose attention was drawn by Lloyd's signalman. They reached the boat just as 6h9 was on the point of sinking, and just in time to effect a rescue. Ace and Williams are deserving of warm commendation for their promptitude.

NEATH CHIEF CONSTABLE RESIGNS. MILD SENSATION AT NEATH: AN APPRECIATION. Neath Watch Committee met privately on Monday afternoon. Mr. Evan Lew resigned his position of Head Constable of Neath. This will oomo before the monthly meeting of the Council oai Thursday, but it is not expected that the decision will be reversed. Many circum- stances have combined to produce this re- sult, one of which is the oampaign of Mr. C. R. Trueman. Few, if any, outside the "inner circle," knew that such an event was going to happen, and when the news leaked out on Monday evening quite a sensation was produced locally. During his five yeans' service in l-iroth Head Constable Evan Lewis had done much to raise the status ot th3 local force, and all the men are enjoying better conditions of uervice than before his arrival. Prior to coining to Neath MT. Lewis had .served 13 years in the Birmingham Police Force, leaving with the best of credentials. He is a clever policeman, and among his smartest performances marbe reckoned the capture of two Germans, who, it was al- leged, broke into the premises of Mr. S. Ka'tenfcacn, jeweller, Neath, and ()t clear away with nearly 2500 worth of jewellery. Mr. Lewis arrested tlie pair in London, and recovered over 2400 worth of the stolen property. Mr. Lewis has invariably shown much I kindneffi and c-insicleration in the discharge of his official duties.

VICAR AND HIS CHOIR. BRITON FERRY SPLIT SUNDAY'S SERVICE. On Sundav week, owing to some un- pleasantness betwee-i the vicar and the choir of St. Clement's Church, Briton Ferry, the vicar decided to dispense with the iatter's services, and on Sunday there was some speculation as to who would officiate at the organ instead of Mr. Nelson, who had given notice to terminate his engagement.

They got into the train, and prisoner pulled out a bottle of whisky and offered complainant a drink. Just before reaching Landore, wit- ness, in looking for a copy of a weekly in his breast pocket, pulled out his Savings Bank book. Prisoner noticed it, and made a grab at it. Prisoner refused to return it, and said he had not got it. Wit-nets told a porter at Landore, but the porter said they had no time, as the train was late. He again reported it at Neath, but there he met with the same reply. At Port Talbot -ic! again asked for the book, but prisoner refus- to give it, and then made a grab for nis watch and chain, breaking the gold chain, and also threatened to strike witness. Com- ipiainant ,en gave defendant in charge of a policeman on the platform at the time. P.C. Harris stated prisoner was very vio- lent. He found the bank book in prisoner's breast pocket, and also some deposit receipts I in prisoner's own name at the Gwaun-cae- Gurwen Post Office.

A moment later he dropped in a fit, and was carried away. He did net regain 000- sciousness, and died three hours afterwards.
.S HUE AND CRY AT YSTALYFERA. ALLEGED DARING THEFT OF BOOTS. Much excitement was caused about 4 o'clock on M'onday afternoon by a rather daring case of robbery alleged to have been committed in Ystalyiera by a tramp. The man, stated to have been employed on the road in. laying pipes, on being paid off, was returning, presumably to Swansea. He was passing Mr. A. Ohappell's establish- ment, the Wern Boot Stores, and there he is alleged to have stolen a pair of boots kept near the door, hid them under his coat, and cooily walked off. A little girl lold the tradesman, who promptly sent tor P.S. Brown. Then there was almost a hue and cry after the thief. Messrs. W. D. Clee and L. J. C'lee gave chase, catching the alleged thief and a companion near the Ystalyf sra Works. The man gave up the boots, and asked to be allowed to go free. However, Sergeant Brown soon came on the scene, and took the man into custody.

MR. FRANK GALLAGHER'S FAREWELL BENEFIT CONCERT AT THE ALBERT I HALL. life is a series of variety turns; the cur- tain rises and falls. The beat of friends must part, and 5 £ years is a pretty long run. M't. Frank Gallagher has, at the Swansea Empire, almost come to be re- garded as a fixture, and now that he is leaving for London to manage a theatrical company, Empire patrons will no doubt miss him. Mr. William Coutts called for cheers as Mr. Gallagher came on at the Albert Hall benefit on Monday night. He didn't know he had so many friends in Swansea, said Mr. Gallagher, though he had remained here longer than he bad in any other town in his life. The concert was organised by Messrs Tom Jones and WignaJl, both of whom had worked very- hard. He thanked them, thanked the Press and the artistes for coming. Among the artistes were Mr. Andraw Bell, quite correctly billed as "a fine bari- tone" Miss Lilian Rickaxd, "a delightful contralto" Mr. Harry Devine, "descriptive vocalist" Messrs. Harvey, White and Allen Stainer, of tho "Merry Madcaps," Of comedians there were Messrs. Tom iOwen, Alf Thomas, Tom Jones (all names that litave fixed value to Swansea audiences). Mr. J. W. Jones (eisteddfod winner), Miss Marian Parker and Master Freddie Brooks, Mr. Dick Lewis, and Mr. Fred Bolden (the Valley musician). The little sketch, slight but tuneful, "From Wonderful," was speci- ally written, composed, and produced by Mr. J. M. Wigual 1, and a company of tiny local "Rosebuds," with Miss May Harris as "Fairy Queen," Miss Elsie Thomas as "Elsie," Mr. F. Wignail as "Spirit of the Past," and Miss Fay Staoay, C.R.A.M., as accompanist. The accompanists were Miss Katie Rey- nolds, C.R.A.M., and Mr. Jack Jones, RaJod. Considering the oppressive weather, the audience that gathered speaks volumes for Mr. Gallagher's popularity.

lVlORRISTON MITE'S DEATH. GRAVE CHARGE AGAINST A MOTHER. "NOT SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE FOR A JURY." At Swansea on Monday Richard Davies, fitter, B -road, Morriston, and Esther Davies, nis wife, were charged with causing the death of their child, Richard Glyn, aged six months. Defendants hed been committed to the Assizes by a. coroner's jury for manslaugh- ter. Evidence was then given that the child had been overlain, and it was alleged that tb" mother had been in a drunken con- dition. Mr. Laurence Richards prosecuted, and Mr. T. H. Harris defended. Mr. Richards first of all asked leavo to withdraw the summons against the man. He didn't think any charge could be proved against him.—Granted. Jane Lewis, a neighbour, said that on Sat- urday week, at seven o'clock p.m., defend- ant's nusband brought the baby to her. About the same time she saw defendant staggering drunk. The woman demanded her baby back. Witness said she didn't have it, but defendant insisted. Defendant said she bad no right to go into the house to fetch the baby. Defendant was of drunk- en habits. At half-past three next morning defendant came saying her baby was dead. Cro-s-esamined by Mr. Harris, witness admitted that defendant had said she was a "fancy man" to her husband, and she (witness) was much hurt over .hat. Mrs. Mary Williams, who had laid out the b:v, was called. Dr. Williams, Landore, said that at four a.m. on Sunday he found the child had been dead for half an hour. There were no marks of violence. The body was that of a healthy, well-developed cniid. Death was probably due to suffocation from oveT-lying. He saw defendant, who seemed to be more or less undar the influence of drink. By Mr. Harris Her condition after con- finement would render her more liable to be influenced by a small quantity of drink. The condition of the mother as he saw her that morning might have been due to shock. Mr. lams You say the child was ex- ceptionally well nourished?— It was well nourished. Snch an accident as this could take place in the best regulated families?—Yes, it has taken place. Inspector Evans was called. The magistrates were unanimously of opinion that there was not sufficient evidence to go to a jury. The case was dismissed. The coronar's commitment to the Assizes still holds good, however.
WIFE WHO "ISN'T A SAINT." SWANSEA FIREMAN'S TROUBLES WITH HIS WIFE. At Swansea on Monday, Reuben Hoar-i. fireman, High-street, was summoned for per- sistent cruelty to his wife, Minnie. Complainant said they had been married 12 months, and had one child, a month old. She left him on July 18th, because two days before ho had taken her by the throat, and nt arly choked her. He also struck her in the back. That was a fortnight after the baby was horn. Defendant: You may think to look at her that she is a saint. But she isn't. The case was adjourned for a fortnight, in hopes of settlement.
PORT TALBOT'S PILOTS. ANNUAL INSPECTION BY THE COMMISSIONERS. The annual inspection of the pilot boats at Port Talbot Docks by the Pilotage Board took place on Saturday, when the commis- sioners inspected the four boats. Later tley were got under sail a again in- spected near the Bell Buoy. The commis- sioners expressed their satisfaction at the smart and well-kept. appearance of the lioats. The commissioners then proceeded in the Port Talbot tug Emily Charlotte as far as Lynmouth. They were accompanied by Messrs. E. Lowther (general manager Port Talbot Railway and Docks Co.). E. Nott (Secretary), Mr. Mulling (Graving, Dock), and others. About four hours were spent at Lynmouth. Despite the unfavour- able climatic conditions a very enjoyable day resulted. At the close of the inspection the ur boats, Minerva, Winner, Dorothy, and Alarm, sailed a race from the Bell Buoy to the Scarweather ^Lightship and back, a dis- tance of about 18 miles. The Dorothy took the lead, but after covering about six miles the boats became becalmed, and the other tlnee boats gave up the race.
"HIS WIFE'S BETRAYER." MORRISTON HUSBAND SUMMONED BY A SKEWEN MAN. At Neath on Friday David H. Newall, labourer, 897, Neath-road, Morriston, was summoned by Frederick William Rideout, of Morretown, Skewen, for acsault on the 23rd inst. It wM alleged that defendant struck com- plainant a blow in the face. Defendant said Rideout was his w Te's betrayer, and he did make an effort in (Self-defence to hit him. He did not happen to reach him. Complainant closed the door and defendant the panel with his elbow. He then took away his child and went towards the station. He saW com- plainant draw a knife, and said to him "Defend yourself like a ma.n." As toO the blew on the haad, defendant said "I never did it." Clerk: If complainant is your wife's be- trayer it is singular that you never asked him a single question about it. Defendant: I did not wish to press that. It touches tender feelings. The Chairman: You have taken the law in your own hands, and you will be fined 10s. and costs.
WELSH CHURCH CHORALISTS. INSPIRITING FESTIVAL AT ST. MATTHEW'S, SWANSEA. BEAUTIFUL SINGING BY FOURTEEN CHOIRS. Rarely ha.ve the Church Choral Union in the Archdeaconry of Carmarthen had a better conducted or more successful festival than tha.t held on Tuesday morning at St. Matthew's elsh Church, Swansea. There is a, taunt often flung that, especially in Wales, th3 Church leaves all its singing to its choirs, but no one who heard the large congregation cm Tuesday, and felt the swing and go prevalent throughout the whole service, would dream of asserting such a thing. Choralists from fourteen Welsh churches were present with their friends every avail- able space was filled, and not a single nook was empty. 'At half-past 'eleven, the sur- pliced singers assembled outside the church, and with a number of clergymen marched to their places inside the chancel, the hymn, "Gwel uwchlaw cymylau amser" being sung meanwhile. Rev. T. R. Walters, M-A., Vicar of St. David's, Carmarthen, intoned, and here be- came evident the thorough manner in which the choirs had been trained. The responses were made in refined, melodious tones, that equalled what was best in the festival, and the point is worth mentioning because this is more frequently the great Weakness in Church vocalisation. A very sweetly-rendered solo, "Iesu, Cyfaill f'enaid cu," was given by Miss Grade The Vicarage, Llandebie, and came the anthem, "Ciodforwch yr Arglwydd." Not a single weak nofe im- paired this, from first to last, and well might the conductor (Mr. John Pricj, Reulah, Garth) feel pleased. Rev. T. L. Richard, Vicar of St. Mat- thew's, read ono lesson, and Rev. D. Roderick, Cockett, the other, and it was perhaps in general consort with the whole proceedings that the festival sermon, preached by Rev. J. Jones, B.A., Llandebie, should be a strong and vigorous one, that impelled those present to sing the hymn fol- lowing with a sense of exhilaration and life. Dr. Herbert McClelland, of Christ Church, Carmarthen, was organist. Secre- tarial duties were carried out by Rev. T. R. Walters, M.A., Carmarthen, and lr. T. W. Barker, Carmarthen; Mr. J. L. Thomas, M.A., TJandilo, being treasurer. Mr. W. Grey Walters a.nd Mr. J. E. Davies, war- dens of St, Matthew's, marshalled the choirs and worshippers into their places-—no J light task!
MAGDALEN OF THE SMART SET." REMARKABLE SERMON BY FATHER VAUGHAN. On Sunday afternoon, in the Farm Street Chapel, London, Father Bernard Vaughan delivered to a large and fashionable congre- gation another of his remarkable sermons, this time taking as his subject, "The Mo- dern Magdalen of the Smart Set." What chmce had a girl of living a beauti- ful virtuous life, he asked, when she was the offspring of parents belonging to the fast smart set? The child's first school- room ought to be its mother's heart, where it imbibed all that was needed for its body and roul. But this poor girl, whom he would call the Magdalen of a smart set, she had the spiritual side of i. well-being left mutilated. He went on to describe the de- vices and superhuman efforts made by the parents of the girl to start her on a career in the smart set. Finding themselves foiled for a time they wrote out a cheque for somfe political party or charity, with the distinct understanding that they were to be included in the next honours list. So the vulgar trick was.done, and they told people with effrontery that the honour was not sought for, but was thrust upon them. The vulgarity of the rich was going like a pestilence through the land. Our English girls were sold to men for money, and their life was not con- sidered. What happened, The girl was married. It was all hollow and loveless. Then she meets the man she ought to have married. They become too intimate. At last he is ordered abroad, and is glad of the excuse to go, being tired of her. The girl falls from Heaven to Hell, and finally dies a suicide. "She has been robbed of her life by her parents," shouted Father Vaughan; "they rob their dressmakers, their officials, their underlings, and they rob their children of Jesus and their life. This is a typical case of many. I am outspoken. Think I care? I care nothing if I can win a smile at the end of my Ufa from Him who died for U6 ail."
"QUEER FISH." AGAIN SEEN OFF THE MUMBLES PIER. The large fish which has been haunting the waters around the Mumbles for some time p t, with another of the same species, was seen near the Mumbles Pier C41 Sunday afternoon, a huge black fin being seen pro- je^ng above the water moving towards the Plead. It struck an upright of the pier, righted and proceeded, rounding he Mumbles Lighthouse, where the coastguard fired a shot at it. Piermaster Twomey de- scribes v E the blackfish, a species of whale, apparently nine to ten feet long. The keeper of the Mumbles lighthouse Mr. J. Williams, is of opinion that^ instead of being a whale"-the creature alluded to is "two-foot shark," which has boon, as he' terms it, "cruising around for some little time past."
r WELLINGTON STREET WAR. FLARE-UP IN A FRIED FISH SHOP. At Swansea on Monday James Freedman, labourer; Alice Freedman, his wife, and John Chugg, hauliier, all of Wellington- street, were summoned for assaulting Justin Robert. Chugg was also summoned for as- saulting Mrs. Isabella Robert. Justin Robert keeps a fried fish shop in Wellington-street. He complained that Mrs. Freedman bad, at about half-past ten on Saturday night, been calling to customers who were coming to his shop not to buy any —— chips or fish, nor anything from the —— Boer She. then came into the shop and tried to pull him over the counter. He tried to turn her out, then her husband came in, took hold of a. vinegar bottle, and tried to hit him on the head. All three defend- ants struck him, and he had since been compelled to Ripply for police protection. Alice Farrell. was called. Mr, Rees, landlord of the Wellington Hotel, said there was a big row in the shop. For the defence it was said that Mrs. Freedman had also been assaulted by Mr. Roberts; in fact, there had been a general row. Ail the causes were dismissed. "It is quite impossible for us to settle these cases," said the Chairman.
MINERS AND THE L.R.C. GURNOS MEETING APPROVES OF AMALGAMATION. SPEECHES BY JOHN WILLIAMS AND JOHN WARD. A crowded meeting of local miners and others was held at the Drill Hall, Gurnos, Ystaivfera, on Saturday afternoon, Mr. Jno. Williams, M.P. (Gower) presiding. Messrs. Wm. Jones, M.P. (Arvon), and T. R. Sum- merbeli, M.P. (Sunderland) had been an- nounced to speak, but were unable to attend. Messrs John Ward. M.P., and Alfri;d., Onions acted as substitutes. Mr. Sidney Robinson, M.P., also spoke. 'i The Chairman, with regard to the forth- coming ballot for affiliation with the Labour Representation Committee, entered a strong protest against the unkind attacks made on "Mabon" by the younger leaders. For himself ho wished to say that though the two Labour proups in the House of Commons were united on all Labour questions, the time was ripe for their amalgamation into one solid party, united in policy as in principles. Mr. Williams then referred to the bogey cry of Socialism which had been raised. He maintained that Socialism was not the irreligious spectre which some people imagined it to be. Socialism was not an- tagonistic to religion; indeed hir own ex- perience- showed that in practice Socialists as a body were intensely religious. Loud cheers.) A. resolution in favour of Trades Unionism and the furtherance of Labour representa- tioll in Parliament was then moved by Mr. J. D. Morgan, miners' agent, and seconded by Mr. Thomas, Abercrave. Mr. Jno. Ward, M.P., dealt with the changes in social and industrial life, which had been brought about during the past 40 years, through the efforts of organised la- bour. The talk n the public press about the injustice of compelling non-Unionist6 to join the ranks of their organised fellows was "all moonshine If the non-Unionists had not the impudence to avail themselves was "all TnooTchiiie If the non-Unionists had not the impudence to avail themselves of the benefits brought within their reach by the Trade Unions, their claim would perhap.=. be justified. perhap.=. be justified. Mr. Alfred Onions also condemned the men who "sponged" upon their fellows. He advanced, as an argument in favour of a combined T.,aboar party, that the majority I of the Trade Unions had joined the L.R.C gnd that it wai mvicious for the Miners' Federation to still maintain their policy of isolation. (Loud cheers.) I Mr. Sidney Robirson, M.P., spoke from the standpoint of an employer of labour, who regarded Trade Unions with favour, and believed in the necessity for a larger party to focus attention on progressive measures. The resolution was then put, and un- animously adopted. A resolution of thanks to the speakers was also carried.
