LOCAL SIFTrNGS. ♦ Mr. Sydney MeCullocb has been appointed organist of the Castleton Congregational i Church, Mumbles, in the-plaee o £ ,Mr. John- SOD. resigned. I Yesterday Messrs. Lewi! an<i Seas re^ lighted the furnaces at the Gorgeinon Tin- j plate Works, which had been idle far some months. Mr. Griffith Davias, landlord o £ the Prinee^ of Walos Hotel, St. Thomas, and brother ct? Mr. Win. Davies? of tke Victoria Inn^dksd on# Monday, having been ailing for some tnae. I Ap'ixipos of the licences for which appKe»-S time were made to-day in the Swansu.. court, it-is interesting to note that-eeaen new working men's clubs were registered in*! GlamorganshireJast year. The enrate-of St. Peter's, Cockett.<Re*»J £ J.

The champion prize cup, vafosJ at 1$ guineas, offered.at the Treorky Eisteddfod, on- Monday for the best tenor rendering of Lend me your aid (Gounod), was won by Mr. David Lloyd, of Llangannech, Llanelly^ At a meeting of the Swansea steel-worker?. on Saturday, a resolution was passed, urging upon Mr John Hopkin John te accept nomina- tion as a candidate for a seat on the Swansea Town Council at the forthcoming municipal election. There was a larger number of ladies at the Empire on Monday night than is generally to be seen there. No doubt the aristocratic tone imparted by Mr Charles Collette's re- appearance was in a measure responsible for this. Tj afuc from the west to the east, across the St. Thomas drawbridge, was interrupted on Monday night for a considerable time in the usual way—"something had gone wrong with t^.e works which are intended to open and close the bridge across the Tawe. There is no mere fruitful source of bad language in that neighbourhood than this antiquated, humbugging, broken-down bridge. As the six o'clock steam tram from the Mumbles was passing Westcross on Monday evening a. passenger named Thomas Phillips, from the Ugmore Valley, fell oil one of the cars, and rolled under the wheels. He sus- tained severe injuries, his band being crushed, and one side of his face frightfully cut. He was conveyed to the Hospital at Swansea5 where he remains. The Mumbles Regatta Committee are in- dignant because a flag-pole was rcusappro- f priated by a certain fisherman at the regatta. At a recent meeting Mr. Clifton Bennett pro- posed, Mr. William Mason seconded, and it was earned unanimously, ''That this meeting expresses its deepest indignation at the con- was earned unanimously, ''That this meeting expresses its deepest indignation at the con- duct of a certain person, who, during the holding of the regatta, picked up and appre- i priated to his own use a flag pole, the pro- perty of the Regatta Committee." "An Old International," writing in the Mail to-day re rifle shooting in Wales, Which, he says, is 50 years behind England and Scotland, suggests than an association shouid be formed of the various Welsh Rifle Clubs and a trophy provided for competition. With such clubs as those at Swansea, Taibach, Bridgend. Llaneliy, Merthyr, & he thinks that the Principality ought to turn out a Winning international team- The quarterly meetings of the Sundav- I schools connected wiUi Philadelphia, Hafod, Swansea, were heid on Sunday: whea addresses, recitations, and so!os were given by members of the school, Tbe singing was excellent under the able leadership of Mr. John Morgan. Yesteriay the school treat t.ok place, 200 children being cenveyed by I brakes to Penllergaer. The usual kindness I and generosity of Sir J. T. D. Llewelyn enabled the little ones to enjoy themselves immensely. The funeral of the late Mr T. H. Day, hay j and corn merchant. Swansea, took place at Danygraig Cemetery on Monday. The cortege left the residence of tbe deceased, Hamilton- j terrace. Gorse-lane, at three o'clock in the} afternoon. A largo number of friends took j part, the mourning coaches being ol v.vedby j several private carriages. The officiating j clergyman was the Rev. E. G. of St Nicholas Church, and the undertakers were j Messrs. G. and F. Webster. I A joyous excitement reigned supreme in the j ever-gay tin-plate town or Llanelly last i evening after it became known that the Town! Band (under the leadership of Sergeant I Samuel) had added, to their brilliant list ef victories by taking two first prizes in the II Treorky Eisteddfod. Although it was dobf upon eleven o'clock when the bandsmen reached Lianeily by a special train, there was a big crowd in the station to give them a j welcome home, and a procession was formed and headed by the Band, it marched exultingly I along through the principal streets of the town, j Mr. C. H. Evans, of the Gainsboreugh Studio, Swansea, writes :— In your issue of the 1st inst., 5 Photographer's Assistant' wishes to know why tbere is no fulfilment yet i of the more than half-promised weekly | holiday? Briefly the reason is this. Prac- tieally all the photographers of Swansea are J agreed that a haif-holidav is de-Jrahle, I and all but one of them are agreed that Thursday afternoon would I be the most acceptable to the assistants and ourselves, as nearly all the trips, pieaics, &c., are arranged for that day; but Mr. Chapman, after in the tirtit instance agreeing to do as the others should decide upon doing at the meeting referred to—(Mr. Chapman, being j awav from home, < ould not attend)- at the last backed out, and now, 1 understand, will not entertain the idea at all. It is seif- evident why there is no photographers' half- i holiday." j The Lianeily magistrates had befnrs them j or e day last week a claim for wages by a sea- man which is of considerable interest and importance to the sea-goLng fraternity. Mr. i James O. Patty, late steward of the 5.s.1 Lo iorc, sued Mpsara. Fisher, Reinwick and i Company, of Swansea, for a month's wages I £7 10s., on the ground that the vessel left Novill's Dock, Llanelly, without the plaintiff; at the time that he had been sent on ouore by the captain to execute certain orders. From the statement mads to the Bench it appeared thai Batty went Oil shore to enqture ¡ about t;.quantity CL meat which at the last I moment had been delivered by a local butcher to the wTong vessel. When the steward returned to the dock he found that Cue Lodere was just leaving the harbour. He made an attempt to catoh fcor by jumping into I a row-boat, but failed to overtake the steamer. For the defence it was alleged that the ¡ reason the steward had missod the vessel wag thai he was ir; drink at the time. This, j however, was disproved to the satisfaction of I the magistrates, who swarded plaintiff £3 10s. j and costs, ajnd also ordered that his belong- J ings should be returned from the steamer. j
