Pic-lessor l'iuulay, D.Se., wrote giving the result of the test made by lum on November ljtlJ ot the illuminating power of tHe gas sup- plied by the Aberystwytn Gas Company, com- paring tiie same With tHe three previous tests, and suggesting tiiat the time seemed opportune lor taking step-i to obtain the necessary sanction to put tne gas test on a basis ot calorific value instead of lighting value. The iea-er was .eierred to the Publ.c Works Committee. CHURCH" COUNCIL'S PROTEST. a letter had. been received fron the local branch 01 the Free Church Council enclosing a resolution passed by the Executive Committee on December 6th protesting against the announcement made by the bellman the pre- vious Saturday that places of worship in the town would be closed on Sunday. The notice, it was stated, was given without the sanction of the Public Health Committee and without consultation w.tli the authorities concerned, and wa.s discourteous to the churches. Dr. Harries said he was pleased the matter had been brought to the notice of the Council, because it showed that he had done his duty. The Council, to prevent the spread of influenza in the town, had given him a free hand; and in the matter referred to he had not done more than his duty; because it was understood that orders were to be given to close churches, chapels, and cinemas, if that was found neces- sary. He resented the suggestion that he had acted in a discourteous manner towards the church; it was the last thing he would do; but He could not refrain from expressing indigna- tion at the action of the Free Church' Council in the circumstances. It was his duty to do his best to prevent the spread of influenza in the town; and, in his opinion, it was against com- mon sense was criminal—to keep open any places of worship or entertainment at present. As in any as 120 cases of influenza in the town had been. traced to a concert. Some of the victims were in their graves and could not tell the tale. And, yet, here was a protest against a just act. What could the Council think of such a protest He did not care whether he was considered discourteous or not if he did his duty. But the protest came from the very men he thought would have helped him in tne cause of humanity, in the saving of lives of I' human beings. lie might say that a Local Government Board inspector had been in the f town, and was pleased with all he had done. More, he told him to continue in the same II direction, and added that the Board would help him, financially and otherwise, if necessary. He hoped the Council would acquit him of any in- tention to be discourteous to anyone. Professor Edward Edwards said 1)r. Harries was right in his statement that the Council had given him authority toi act within his province Personally, he went to cnapel three times on Sunday, and be did not know what the Council thought of him. But inose who went to church and chapel wanted to tarry on tne work to the best of their ability. lie understood there were notions that cHapel", were nests of vermin and very injurious to health. Tliut remained to be proved. Dr. Harries said lie could not grasp Coun- cillor Edwards's meaning. Councillor Edwards replied that that was not his fault. What he meant to imply was that he was a member of the Council which had given Dr. Harries authority to act as lie liked and was also a regular chapel worker. Dr Harries said he had acted according to tlie authority given him by the Council, it was hi bouuden duty to do wijat he had done, and lie would do it again. Councillor David DaN,ies-Wii;kt was the nature of the bellman's announcement? Dr. Harries—That people should avoid churches, chapels, and cinemas. Councillor David Davies—But people do not go to cinemas on Sundays. Dr. Harries—I know. I meant during the week. WAR RELICS. A letter was read from the Lord Lieutenant D' of Cardiganshire (Colonel Davies-Evans, High- mead) offering to the town a German guu as a war relic. Councillor Edward Edwards thought the offer absurd, considering what the town had done in the war in the matter of money alone. I Alderman C. M. Williams- What about llav. illg a submarine? Dr. Harries thought it would be a good plan to broach Mr. Vaugnan Davies, M.P., and the Cardiganshire Battery in the matter. The Battery had done very well in the war, having lost only two men, and the Council could ask the Government to grant guns to the Battery and also to the town. Alderman T J. Samuel thought the Council should make a very strong appeal in the matter. 1 If the Cardiganshire Battery had captured some guns the town should get some of them; and if the Council sent to tne War Office and place their case before them, they might succeed. Aberystwyth had made greater ettorts in con- nection with the war tnan any place in the country, and they had to press those things home. Councillor T. J. Mon-isonr- Is it not possible to get an U boat in the Harbour? There will be nothing lost in asking. Dr. Harries said it would be well to have a gun from each nation that took part in the war, especially one of the fine French guns. Jf the Council applied direct for a French gun, he had no doubt that they would get it. It was resolved to apply to the War Office for a gun from every nation engaged in the war-vict-ors and vanquished—and also to ask Mr. Vaughan Davies, M.P., to support the application. LABOUR AND FOOD COMMITTEE. Mr. C. Hanson, secretary to the North Car- diganshire Trade Union and Labour Council, wrote protesting against the Council's treat- ment of the nomination of members of the Food Committee, and asking that their request be dealt with in a reasonable manner and that the appointment of the Committee be reconsidered A letter was read also from the Deputy Divi: sional Food Commission, Cardiff, stating that it was essential that a Food Committee consisting of twelve members should include three Labour representatives nominated by an organised Labour Council in the district, also Co-operative member if there was a Co-operative establish- ment in the town. The matter was a serious one and lie requested the Council to attend to it at once. The Deputy Clerk said the Committee com- prised seven Council members, two Labour (one nominated by the Trades Council), two women, and Mr. Sylvanus Edwards who was re-elected on account of the exceptional service he had rendered to the Committee. Councillor Edward Edwards moved that the Council adhere to its decision. Dr. Harries seconded. When the Council came to a decision it was final. Alderman T. J. Samuel—If they do not like us, they can lump us. I was anxious to get out of it; but I am not now. Alderman C. M. Williams said the Council in appointing the Committee went into the matter thoroughly, and with full regard to the regula- tions. There were exceptions in the regula- tions, and the Council acted upon them. They considered that Mr. Campbell, one of the Labour members, who had been a trade unionist for twenty-eight years, had rendered the Committee yeoman service. Mr. Sylvanus Edwards, also, had rendered invaluable service, and, in his opinion, the Council had elected a committee that would render good service to the town. If the Food Committee had not showed backbone, the town Would have been doomed in the matter of food for some weeks in the summer. He did not like the interference of high officials who knew nothing of local conditions. Many of the members would only be too glad to get out of ¡ the Committee, but they did not want to run 1 away. Let them make a firm stand. It was resolved that the Council adhere to its decision and state their reason for doing so. Y.M.C.A. MEMORIAL HALL. The Finance Committee reported that they had received a letter from Mr. R. Rowlands, North-parade, asking for a definite reply by I December 10th as to what the Council could do I to support the Y.M.C.A. Memorial Committee, 1 and had replied that the question was sur-
[ Aberystwyth Agricultural Committee., PIVOTAL MEN. Aberystwyth District Agricultural Committee met on Monday, present Mr J. Bunce Morgan, presiding, in the absence of Mr. J. Morris-Davies who was unable to attend through illness; Messrs R. L. Thomas, J G. Stephens, E. J. Evans, Daniel Jenkms, D. W. Lewis, David Jones, and E. R. Davies, clerk. Mr. Lloyd Lewis explained the steps being taken by the authorities for the release of pivotal men whose absence results in a disloca- tion of rural industries. The authorities in- vited the Committee to make a list of twenty for submission to a sub-committee on which labour would be represented. That committee would select fifteen deemed most essential, with a view of their early release. There was, in addition to that scheme, an opportunity to peti- tion for the release of men for whom situat:ons were reserved as the earliest to-be returned on demobilization. Apart from that, men could be applied for 0fD two months furlough for the ploughing season which could be extended un- less the national position was adversely affected. The Committee compiled a list of men deemed most essential. In reference to the ploughing programme, it was decided that the tenant of Rhiwarthen should plough the additional quota at Tyrabbey, and several other orders were agreed upon.

Llanbrynmair Airman's Death. DUE TO PNEUMONIA. On Saturday morning, November 9th, a gloom was cast over Lanbrynmair by the news that reached the Post Office. The first intimation of the death of 'Mr. J. W. Daniels caine from a friend. It was followed by an official nOlfica- tion on Sunday to the effect that he had I died of pneumonia in France. Mr. Daniels joined the air service twelve months ISst August and was with the allied army in Italy. He wrote home regularly, but for many weeks lately no news had been received, which was thought to be due to the rapid advance of the Allies which upset the postal arrangements. The natural conclusion drawn in the absence of further particulars is that he was on the way home through France to pay a surprise visit when he caught a fever and died. With the passing away of Mr. Daniels, Llanbrynmair has lost one of its finest, most useful, and most promising young men. When he was called up his loss was deeply felt. For a number of years he and his sister had been solely respon- sible for the carrying on of the business. He was also postmaster and carried out all his duties with that charm cf manner which endeared him to everybody. In spite of all the claims of business, he found time to do muc: social work, and there was no movement for uplifting his fellow creatures in which Johnny, as he was popularly called, did not identify him- self. He was the organist at the Old Chapel, a school manager, and one of the chief workers and supporters of the cause at Tafolwern School- room. He loved to do things in a quiet way, as many a soldier he had befriended could testify. Mr Daniels was one of those whose re- turn was expected to inspire reconstructive work at home after the war. Sincere svrnpathv is felt with the parents wiio during his absence have striven to carry on the business, with Miss Daniels, his sister, with whom he had been closely associated in business for many years, his brother, and his sister (Mrs. Jones, Bryn- llys).

The Cambrian- News for Christmas Presents
Action by a Violinist. ABERYSTWYTH BANDMASTER AS DEFENDANT. We cut the following report from the 14 Rich- mond Herald:"— At Wandsworth County Court, on Tuesdav. befoup Judge Harrington, Miss Sara Manton- Myatt, of Richmond, violinist, sued Mr J. H. Rowe, Aberystwytn, bandmaster. Mr. C. Bray (instructed by Crawshay and Barrow) was counsel for plaintiff, and Mr. Newton Driver for defendant. Plaintiff claimed m9 9s. 3d. wages, damages for wrongful dismissal, and money wrongfuilv deducted from salary during temporary illness. The defendant counterclaimed E15 for damages by reason of plaint.ff leaving his services without cause. Mr. C Bray stated that plaintiff s claim arose out of a contract entered mto between the ¡ parties, whereby defendant engaged plaintiff as violin leader in the Aberystwyth Council Band under defendant's direction, from 18th May, 1918, to 27th September, 1918, at a salary of £3 per week, plus single fare. Plaintiff per- formed her contract down to the 27th July, 1918, when she became ill, and was away until 5th August, 1918, for which defendant deducted 10s for this period from her salary. On the 30th August 1918 defendant, she alleged, without just cause, dismissed plaintiff from his service during I a performance of the Band by using the words, "You can go: we shan't miss you," and "You can go; get out." Plaintilf bore out her Counsel's statements, and called several witnesses to corroborate. Defendant, through his solicitor, set up the defence that plaintiff had not been dismissed; on the contrary, the plaintiff had left his ser- vice on her own accord, for which he claimed I damages, and in support he called several wit- nesses who had journeyed from Wales, including Mr. T. J. Samuel, a member of the Aberyst- wyth Towa Council. The Judge found that defendant had dis- missed plaintiff without cause, and gave judg- ment for £18 lis. 3d. on the claim and on the counterclaim, with costs.

NEWCASTLE EMLYN- One by one the brave boys of the district who were taken prisoners are returning home. Pte Oakwell, Llandyfriog, has arrived, after having been..some three years in the hands of the Hun, and as may be imagined, seen hard days. The end of last week saw Private Jones, son-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. Jones, hairdresser Castle- street, return 'from his bondage. There are more yet to come and it is hoped that the district will not be too ready to forget the hardships these boys have gone through on their behalf. Nearly the whole of the colony of Danes who were employed in timber-felling and billeted at the old Workhouse building, have returned home. During their stay at Newcastle Emlyn their conduct was excellent on the whole, and many of them will be greatly missed. They were always ready to give a helping hand to all patriotic events in the town; and their invalu- able assistance during the recent fire will not be hastily forgotten, when they laboured like Trojp.ns, quite heedless of the personal risks they ran.

Be had only C66 capital of his own, but he had since paid off the amount excepting £42. It was made a condition of his exemption from military service that he should work three days a week on farms. The result was that in his absence the business suffered. The examination was adjourned to enable debtor to furnish a cash account. Mr. J. E. Mathias, has been appointed trustee

Mr Howel T. Evans, headmaster of the Aber- ayron Intermediate School, has, in arranging for navigation and its chief subjects to be tallght at that institution, made an entirely new depar- ture in Welsh education. It is, however, one that should be specially commendable to the in- habitants of the town and villages on Cardigan Bay, noted for their sea-faring habits. Mr. Evans, who is known as one of the historians of Wales, has also, in many other respects, greatly strengthened the position of his school. On Saturday, November 30th, there was a special Harvard commemoration service at Southwark Cathedral where the Archbshop of York preached, John Harvard, the founder of Harvard University, having been born in Southwark in 1607. In the course of the ser- vice the Archbishop referred to the deaths of Captain Lionel de Jersey Harvard and Lie.:t. Kenneth, his brother, who were both officers in the Grenadier Guards and were killed in action in France in the summer of 1918. These heroes were direct descendants of the founders of Harvard University. Their father, Mr. T. M. Harvard, lives in London. His wife died on the 29th of November last of grief for the loss of her brilliant boys. She was a Miss Thomp- son and a first cousin to Mr. D. G Munro Hughes, J.P., of Aberayron. Mr William Smith Carr, Min-v-Doii, Arthog, Merionethshire, left the residue of his property to St. Dunstan's Hostel for Blinded Soldiers and Sailors and Queen Mary's Auxiliary Con- valescent Hospitals for Soldiers and Sailors who have lost their limbs in the present war, in equal shares— £ 45,122.

Sir,-As now one of the oldest class of electors in W ales, and having taken active in- terest and part in all Parliamentary elec- tions during the past sixty years, I think elec- tors in this election should lay special stress on the social and industrial aspects in our ¡ country. Questions to that end should be asked of every candidate in every constituency by or I on behalf of all classes of electors. I suggest the following form and classes:— (1) The Old Folks at Home.—Are you pre- pared Qr not to advocate that the new Govern- ment shall at once advance old age pension to 1^8 6d a week; as the trade unions, labour parties, friendly societies, and free church councils in England were pressing the late Coali- tion Government to do? (2) (a) Slate Quarrymen and Miners.—Are you prepared to press the Government to make free grants annually to develop, etc., slate quarries and mines in our country, as were freely given by the late Coalition Government to develop, etc., the surface land and the art of agriculture? (b) Are you prepared to press the Government to give in all its building con- tracts preference as a roofing material to the natural sla.te over all artilc;al roofinsr material manfactuved from asbestos, imported into this country, from foreign and colonial countries? (3) Farmers, Traders, and Families.—Are you prepared to urge the Government to at once seriously trouble and irritate farmers, traders, and families of our land?—Yours, etc., Andreas Roberts. 5, St. Peter's-terrace, Pwllheli.

The Welsh University is to be congratulated -on conferring a degree on the distinguished -lyrical poet, "Eificii Wyn." His permanent memorial, however, will be the products of his own muse, which in sweetness of expression and purity of thought have gained for him a niche in the hearts of his compatriots, wherever found. Eifion Wyn" is a man whose excel- lence of literary product is only equalled by his unassuming and captivating personality. A passionate lover of nature and faithful inter- preter of her moods, he has drunk deeply from wells of knowledge that are not available at colleges and universities. There can be fewer more desirable ways of commemorating the unreturning brave in town and hamlet than in the erection of a hall—a sort of communal home—where all classes and creeds can meet together. rub off the angularities of isolation, and co-operate in the increase of social amenities. Ine Countess of Lisburne opened a village club at Llanafan on Saturday to celebrate the birth of Viscount Vaughan, and Aberayron has held a meeting to provide a memorial hall and institute. At Aberayron a fear was expressed that £ 3,000 or £ 4,000 would not be forthcoming for the pur- po, One religious congregation would not hesitate in building a new chapel costing that amount, though at best the building would but serve a section of the population. A hall and institute should serve and, if rightly organised and managed, benefit the whole population, and if the 2,000 inhabitants of Aberayron and neighbourhood cannot provide £ 4,000 or £ 5,000 they ought for ever henceforth hold their peace when progress and social regeneration are under kliscusson. Now that the polling day is drawing near the inte--est in the Carnarvonshire contest is increas- ing. The campaign has been singularly strenu- oil, and marked by one or two regrettable in- cidents. Major Breese, the Coalition candidate, appears to be the favourite, and the general opinion is that he will be elected with a sub- stantial majority. The advent of a third candi- date, Mr. R. T. Jones, of the Quairymen's Union, has materially diminished Mr. Ellis Davies's chances, for a large number of his erstwhile supporters has already flocked under Mr. Jones's banner. Mr. Jones's decision to stand, in the circumstances, is significant. Mr Ellis Davies has taken a prominent part in mailers appertaining to '-he North Wales slate quarries; indeed, he was the prime mover in I many reforms, but recent happenings seem to indicate that he has 1000t prestige with the quaiTymen. In Portmadoc and the rural dis- triits Major Breese will receive strong support, and if we are not mistaken the real contest will be between lam and Mr. R. T. Jones. Mr. Ellis Davies has made a good fight, but he has carried on his campaign on wrong lines, and has Dot been very happy on his appeal to the electors.
(Continued from previous column.) rounded by too many difhcult.es to allow of a reply being sent by that date reply being sent by that date Councillor Edward Edwaids said it was neces- sary to move in tne matter as soon as possible. Now was ths opportune time to appeal lor lunds tor the Memorial Hall, and it was the duty oi tHe Council to do its utmost to help in the matter. Councillor J. Barclay Jenkns said the Com- cil was will.ng to help tlie ^.iVl.C.A. in every way, but it would be Oettsr lor the Association to have a site first and then appeal to the Council for assistance. Dr. Harries—We shall give them every sup- port. Councillor Edwards—There is a rumour in the town that the Council is not in favour of the Memorial Hall. Alderman C. M. Williams could not under- stand that. The Committee had discussed the matter with the representatives of the Y.M.C.A and had showed that they were willing to do everything in their power to help them. There were difficulties in regard to a site. WIDENING OF THE CAMBRIAN RAILWAY The Deputy Clerk reported that he had re- ceived a letter from Mr. S. Williamson, general manager of the Cambrian Railway, with regard to the proposed widening of the line, and stat ing that the matter would receive very careful consideration. Nothing more had been heard about the proposed conference on the matter. Alderman T. J. Samuel asked if representa- tions had been made that the conference be held at Aberystwyth? Councillor Edward Eu'wajrds said, if not that an invitation should be sent at once. The widening, of the railway would be one of the greatest things in the history of the town. The Deputy Clerk stated that intimation had been given that the Council desired the confer- cene to be held in the town, but he could write again to Sir Edward Pryce Jones Montgomery County Council seemed to take great interest in the matter and when he heard last of it they were waiting a reply from the other county councils. Councillor Edward Edwards—Now is the time for Aberystwyth to move in the matter. Soon there will be miles of railways in Franc-, broken up and useful material available. The Deputy Clerk was instructed to write again to Sir Edward Pryce Jones. TOWN LIGHTING. There was a notice of motion on the agenda, in the name of Councillor T. J. Morrison that the Public Works Committee proceed with the lighting of the town on a minor scale. Coun- cillor Morrison said he understood the matter was already in hand, so he withdrew his motion. Alderman Samuel said that only £100 had been provided for lighting in the estimate. Alderman C. M. Williams—Not half enough. The matter was referred to the Public Woriks Committee. MAIN ROADS MAINTENANCE. The Clerk to the County Council wrote ask- ing for a statement of the cost of maintaining the main roads in the borough. Alderman C. M. Williams said the Town Council did not receive a sufficient allowance. They were not getting £ 360 and Cardigan, which was allowed that sum, complained that it I was insufficient. The Chairman of the Public Works and Finance Committees and the Surveyor were re- quested to prepare the statement. ,4:s- ¡
