Football. BY SPECTATOR." Association.—Aberdare paid a visit to Mardy on Saturday, this being the second meeting of these teams in a fortnight. On the occasion of their first visit Welsh League points were at stake. and a weakened eleven did duty, the Dare Directors resting a few of the players in the hope that the team would make a good show in the Southern League. Their hopes were again shattered on Saturday, the Mardy men romping home by three goals without -Response from the Darians. » • • Supporters of the lhtre Club are getting rather annoyed at the impotence of the forwards. To be thrashed by eight goals in two matches and not a solitary goal coming their way requires a lot of explaining. Mardy may possess a strong defence, but 1 am absolutely cer- tain that Swansea's defenders are with- out their equal in South Wales, yet Aberdare managed to find the net on four occasions when they met the Swans a month or so back. When April 30th arrives the record of the Dare Club will not be pleasant reading for those who have followed the fortunes of the habitues of the Ynys Enclosure, year in, year out. There are yet some attrac- tive home fixtures to be played, and it is to be hoped that the wearers of the blue and gold will pull themselves together and prove to their opponents that they are still a side who must be treated with respect. The Thursdays with a weakened teair managed to pull off a draw with Aber- Ilant, the final score being two each. Abernallt put on a third point just be- fore the end, but for some unaccountable reason the referee disallowed the goal. To-day (Thursday) the locals will have their work cut out to defeat the Mer- thyr midweekers. The result practically decides the championship, as both teams have lost three points in the league tournament. A large gate is assured. The following eleven would be more than a match for the Merthyrians^ — Goal, Phillips; backs. Stockton Wil- liams and Dick Morgan; half-backs, Ivor Davies, Alec Taylor, and Thomas; forwards, Badham, Arthur Jones, Cyril Smith, Harry Williams, and Evan Wil- liams. < On Saturday Groves, ;1] ex-Darian, who figures prominently in the Wolver- hampton eleven, scored two goals for his side. He would be very useful to Aberdare just at present. What? • • • On Monday afternoon at the New Athletic Grounds. Mardy and Aberdare met in a Welsh League match. The crowd was the poorest seen on the ground this season, the shortcomings of the eleven of late accounting for the sparse attendance. The Directors in- cluded Fred Lewis at back, Bilson having a trial at centre-forward. The home team reversed Saturday's defeat, and brought off a well-deserved win by three goals to one. Fred Lewis gave a fine display as partner to Alf Goodwin. This local lad ought to he persevered with, as he is a player of undoubted merit, and only needs experience with better company to make him an ideal defender. George Martin, who was set the task of shadowing the Mardy goal getter (Coates), did his work well, the latter rarely bringing off those danger- ous bursts for which he is so famous. The surprise of the afternoon was the splendid display of the skipper and Jim Bennett, whose raids always spelt danger to the opposing defence. It is safe to say that Bennett gave his best exhibition of the season, for which he has to thank Geo Phillips, who timed his passes to the winger beautifully. While not a great success in his new position Bilson made no had blunders, and in order to keep Phillips and Bennett together he should be given a further trial. He has played many fine games for Barrv in the front line. Hugh Thornton and tlolden had a very quiet 90 minutes, the manager evidently still suffering from his injuries. » « Griffiths was included in the reserve eleven at Troedyrhiw on Monday. He scored the Darians' only goal from a penalty. BY •' MUDDIED OAF." At a meeting of the Management Com- mittee of the Welsh League held at Quaker's Yard on Wednesday night, the protest by Ynysybwl against Penrhiw- ceiber Guild for playing ineligible players was dismissed. Penrhiwceiber Crusaders were ordered to replav their match with Treharris United. The match between Cwmaman and the Pontypridd Y.M.C.A. was ordered to stand as played. Hirwain and Ynysybwl were fined for non-fulfilment of fixtures. In the draw for the knock-out third division competition Ynysybwl were pitted against the Treharris Guild, whilst the winners of the Trelewis v. Dowlais match are to play the Aberdare Reserves. • RUGBY. Mountain Ash v. Penarth.—This match took place at the Seasiders' Enclosure oil Saturday last. The Old Firm were: Back, J. Brown; threequarter tracks. Jarnian, Joshua Davies, Dai Arthur Davies, and J. Stegman; half-backs, C. Munday and H. Poole; forwards, Tom Shepherd, P.C. Perryman. T. Blacker, P.C. John, Gibbon. Mackenzie, J. Hill, and L. Meazey. In the first half the Seasiders held an advantage, and the Mount team were penalised. Ffeplop negotiated a splendid goal. Moum:aiii Ash improved afterwards and taxed the Seasiders' defence. Roberts got the ball and miskicked. Stegman, seizing his chance, scored a lovely try for the Mount, and Davies converted. Garrett improved the Seasiders' position with an unconverted try. This was all the scoring in the first half. After the change of ends the Mountain Ash for- wards played a strong game but failed to score. Penarth won bv 14 points to 5. » « The draw for the Second Round of the Pontypridd and District Cup Compe- tition has resulted as follows:—Moun- tain Ash Juniors v. Pontypridd Re- serves or Llantwit; Mountain Ash Har- lequins v. Pentyrch, and Abercynon and Ynysybwl were given a bye ..until the next round. Matches are to be com- pleted by March 8th. • • • Last week the Mount 'OUill" defeated the Pontypridd Reserves at the latter's ground by a try. scored by Dan England, to nil. The pick of the 'Quins that day were Dan England, Hourane, Mock, Munday, Taylor, and Morgan. Glyn Neath v. Pontypool Seconds.— This match took place at the Pontypool Enclosure on Saturday last. The Glyn Neath team were: Back, T. Howell; three-quarter backs, G. Emmanuel, W. Davies, Eben Williams, and George Williams; half-backs. B. Simmonds and A. Williams; forwards, C. Hamer, D. Thomas, W. Williams, T. John Joseph, R. L. Rees, W. Shaw, George Jones, and Tom Morgan. Nothing was scored during the first moiety. After the change of ends Pontypool scored a. try through J. Ralph, and emerged the winners by the score of a try to nil. » • Appended is the position of the clubs in the I'ontypridd and District League: P. W. L. D. Pts.

Welsh League, Division II., Penrhiw- ceiber v. Abertillery.—During the first moiety good work was contributed by the brothers Aaron Gibbon* and AYill Gibbon at half-back for the homesters, whilst Roberts, Watkins, and Eynon were conspicuous in the front line. Abertillery offered a stubborn defence and kept the homesters out. Their for- wards were in fine fettle, and W J. Jones played an admirable defensive game. The match culminated in a pointless draw. < < Welsh League. Aberdare Reserves v. Nelson. Played at the Athletic Grounds on Saturday. The Darians were: Goal, Jack Phillips; backs, Dan Jones and Jim Hemlock; halves, Bernie Lewis, Jack Griffiths, and Walter Jen- kins; forwards, George Davies, Edwin Snow, Dai Cox Williams, Freddy Lewis, and Ivor Edwards. A clever pass from Dai Cox Williams enabled Fred Lewis to open the score with a vigorous drive. After the change of ends the Darians continued to have the best of matters, and Jim Hemlock went to play at in- side left in the place of Fred Lewis, who resumed his V usual position at full back. A clever burst between Geo Davies and Edwin Snow enabled the latter to give a swinging pass to Hem- lock. who also found the net. Final score: Aberdare Reserves, 2 goals; Nel- son, nil. • • It was a good victory for the Darians, who took the rise out of last year's Junior Cup Finalists. The Reserves' half-back division played a particularly strong game. The team could still do with a couple of good forwards. Bernie Lewis showed signs of improvement at half-back. The Nelson backs played a good game. By the way, what a pity the Reserves lost 'their Cup Tie to Brithdir the other week r « • Welsh League, Division IV., Aber- nant v. Penrhiwceiber Crusaders.— Played on Saturday last at the Aber- nant Grounds. The home team were: Goal, Jack Evans; backs, Lewis N. James and John Lewis Williams; halves, D. John James, D. James Jones, and Charlie Williams; forwards, Jimmy Driscoll, D. John Owen, Tom Evans, Tom Jenkins, and Jack Jenkins. Driscoll scored a good goal for the homesters. Final score: Abernant. 1 goal; Penrhiwceiber Crusaders, nil. BY "ONLOOKER." In the Fifth Division Welsh League Aberaman Albion* played the Cwm- bach Central Rovers at the Maesyffynon Grounds on Saturday. For the Albions: Goal, Williams; backs, S. Thomas (cap- tain) and D. Evans; halves, F. Morgan. C. Hicks. S. Parker; forwards, G. Lewis, Scorey, Evans, Sttliinels, and Gunner. Cwnibach scored through Caslin four minutes from the kick-off. Scorey scored for the Albions before half-time. Cwm- bach crossed over leading by 2-1. In the second half the Albions more than held their own. The wing men broke through the Cwnibach defence, but were weak in front of goal. The Albions' goalie was kicked out twice in the second half, sustaining a nasty cut on the head on both occasions. W. Lewis, Cwm- bach, and F. Morgans, of the Albions, were ordered off the field. The referee had warned these two players in the first half. Final score: Cwmbach, 3; Al- bions, 1. Referee, Mr Kimpton, Aber- dare. The pick of the Albions were Gunner. Samuels, and Lewis. The backs played a good defensive game. Williams in goal played a great game, and saved some dangerous shots. w ft » Aberanian Athletic Reserves enter- tained Llwynon Athletic in a third oi vision league match at Aberaman Park oil Saturday last. For Aberaman were: Goal. J. J." Neads; back, P. Williams, T. Batten; half-backs, W. Hillier (cap- tain), W. Rees, E. Powell; forwards. J. Masters, T. Tennant, W. Woodey, F. Cummings, H. Brayshaw. Referee, W. Bates, Merthyr. The interval arrived with Aberaman leading by one goal. During the second half the play was of a very scrappy nature. W. Rees further placed his side ahead with a good drive from a 25 yards' range. Time was called with Aberaman winning bv 2 goals to nil. < < Cwmaman Windsors Reserves v. Dow- lais Top.—The above Fifth Division Welsh League match was played at Cwmaman on Saturday, February 22nd. Air T. Williams, Robertstown, was the referee. For Cwmaman were: Goal, L. Clarke; backs. J. Carter and G. Rees; half-backs, E. J. Owen. J. Evans, and 11. Williams; forwards, J. L. Davies, R. Williams. D. J. Williams, D. J. Thomas, and J. H. Davies. A fine game ended in a win for Dowlais Top by one goal to nil. For Dowlais the outstanding players were the centre-half, right back, and goalie. For Cwmaman 1). J-. Williams and M. Williams were the most promin- ent. A Welsh League match was played at Michael's Field on Saturday hist, when Merthyr Vale Stars were the visi- tors to the Aberanian Thistles. Thistles started off with a bang, and scored in the first minute through G. Davies. Meithyr now warmed up and equalised. Again the Thistles pressed, and scored through 1). Smith. Half-time' score: Thistles, 2; Meithyr, 1. In the second half the Thistles outplayed their oppo- nents, and scored three times. Final: Aberaman Thistles, 5; Merthyr Stars, 2. The pack of the Thistles were Dai Thomas and J. Evans at half. and G. Davies L. Stephen, W. Davies, and Evan Williams. The referee was Air AN-. Humphreys, Cwnibach.
Mountain Ash District Council On Tuesday, Mr. T. W. Jones, J.P., in the chair. The other members pres- ent were Messrs. J. Powell, W. Lam- burn. W. Davies, G. H. Hall, James EYan, E. Morris, Wm. Evans, W. Millar, Thomas Jones, Noah Bowles, ReV. E. V. Tidman, Mr. D. Rogers, with Mr. J. M. Linton (clerk), Mr. F. Stock (accountant) and Mr. W. G. Thomas (surveyor). No 7 Day Licence. The Abercynon Workmen's Hall Committee applied for a renewal of their cinematograph licence and dra- matic licence, and for the right of per- foiming on Good Friday. They further applied for a 7 days cinematograph licence. Mr. T. W. Jones moved, and Rev. E. V. Tidman seconded, that six days licence be granted, and not 7 days. This was carried. Mr. W. Evans moved that per- mission be granted to perform on Good Friday.—Agreed. Waterworks. Messrs. Fox and Bateman sent in a report dealing with the waterworks. Progress, it stated, was still far from satisfactory, chiefly owing to the weather. Precepts. A precept for £ 11,500 for elementary education was issued on the overseers for half-year ending September 30, 1913. A precept for £ 350, Burial Board estimate, was also issued. Burial Fees. In reply to Rev. E. V. Tidman, the Clerk said he had received counsel's opinion on the question of paying double burial fees, when a Nonconform- ist minister officiated at a funeral. The counsel was of opinion that the incum- bent of the parish, as well as the Non- conformist minister, was entitled to a fee. It followed, therefore, that the course pursued by the Council was cor- rect. In the case, however, of Miskin Parishioners, it was illegal for both the Vicar of Miskin to charge a fee and the incumbent of Mountain Ash parish. Mr. Noah Bowles: There have been cases where the Miskin incumbent has charged fees r Clerk: Yes. Rev. E. V. Tidman: I pointed that out when the Parish of Miskin was created. Air. N. Bowles This will now cease forthwith ? Clerk: Yes. Rev. E. V. Tidman: What about Mountain Ash? Clerk: The policy of the Council is correct. Rev. E. V. Tidman: I am of opinion that we should have another counsel's opinion on this counsel's opinion. I do not understand how counsel's opinion can set aside a precedent established in the High Court of the land. Mr. J. Powell suggested that coun- sel's opinion, as well as Mr. Linton's report, be painted in the minutes and discussed at the next meeting. This course was agreed to. Shops Act. The Mountain Asli and District Hair- dressers' Association wrote asking when the new closing orders came into force. The Clerk said that notices were be- ing served at present informing shop- keepers that the Act was in operation. Air. W. Evans suggested that notices be also sent to Chambers of Trade. Agreed. Employees' Association. Mr. P. Reardon, secretary of the local branch of the Municipal Employ- ees' Association, applied for permission to erect notice boards in various places to instruct members in the rules'relat- ing to the Insurance Act. The Sur- veyor, he added, had prohibited him doing so in the past. He also wished to know what decision the Council had come to regarding the Association's ap- plication for holidays, etc. The Surveyor said he had prevented the men putting tacks on the doors. Air. J. Powell moved that the request be granted, but that no notices be tacked on doors. Air. T..Jones seconded, and the motion was agreed to. Mr. N. Bowles asked whether a reply had been sent regarding the application to" holidavs. The Clerk said lie had not sent anv reply. ( I he Surveyor \Y:\s asked to convey the Council's decision. Overseers' Duties. The Clerk gave notice that overseers would be elected at the next Council meeting. Rev. E. V. Tidman: Can we have a report of their work for the nast vear;" (Laughter.) Air. Rogers: They have no work- simply sign cheques. Ynysybwlians' Mania. PS. Clesham reported that five stieet lamps were wilfuily damaged in Olydach Road, Ynysybwl, one day last month. Air. N. Bowles: They have a mama for breaking lamps at Ynysybwl. Mr. Lamburn Ynysybwl people are losing their good name very fast. They rre rivalling the sllifragettes. (Laugh- ter.) Hpv. E. Y. Tidman said it was time t call the attention of the police to the damage done to propc-rtv in various parts of the district. They should keep a sharper look out in the early hours of the morning. He Knew of windows, tiies and trees being damaged. Evi- dently the spirit of destruction was abroad. He was of opinion that the damage was done by boys going and re- turning from work. Air. Lamburn Tt might be done by other people. Mr. W. Alillar. 1011 mean by the I suffragettes ? Mr. G. H. Hall: They don't usually Cet up very early in the morning. A motion that the attention of the police be called was passed. Immorality. Mr. W. Lamburn remarked that there were complaints of immorality in Car- diff Road, and other public places. He was of opinion that enquiries ought to be made to see whether these rumours were groundless or not; and with that end in view he moved that the police be asked to report. If the rumours proved to be true then it was time for them to wake up and bring about a better state of things. Mr. J. Powell seconded, and the motion was carried. Street Improvements. Mr. N. Bowles moved that private street improvements be put in force in Irene Street, Miskin.—Carried. A Question of Light. Mr. W. Millar complained of the light given by gas in some places in town. He was in a certain place on Friday evening and candles had to be obtained to assist the gas lamps. (Laughter.) Mr. J. Powell: Where was that may we ask? Mr. Millar: In the Parish Room. Rev. E. V. Tidman I should have thought that there would be plenty of "light" there. (Laughter.) I Tenders. There were four tenders received for extensions at the Isolation Hospital, from Messrs. Jones Bros., Abercwmboi; T. W. Davies, A. R. John and J. W. Thomas, Mountain Ash. The tender of Messrs. Jones Bros, was the lowest, and it was accepted. Easement. The Clerk read a letter received from Messrs. L. G. Williams and Prichard, agents of the Estate, containing the conditions under which they were pre- pared to grant the easement which the Council required for the laying of a pipe line on the estate. They were prepared to grant the facilities at a ren- tal of tlS 18s., on condition that the Council would undertake, in the impro- bable event of the land being required for building purposes, go to the expense of removing the pipes or protecting them from damage. The price, the Clerk explained, was based on the guinea per chain per pipe, there being siy chains and three pipes. It was decided to reply accepting the terms, providing the engineer approved. Four New Shops. A plan had been sent in to the Sur- veyor for four shops with a billiard room on top, where eight billiard tables would be erected. There was a defect in regard to air space at the back, but the Surveyor recommended the passing of the plan as submitted.—This was agreed to.

Progress of the Pearl. The Pearl Life Assurance Co. has just issued its report for last year. 1912 was not very favourable to insur- ance business. The blight of the na- tional coal strike affected the industrial community for a great portion of the year, and this would naturally have an adverse effect on all insurance prem- iums. Besides, the National Health Insurance Act came into operation, and the StaH of the Pearl betook to secur- ing for their policyholders and others the benefits of this Act through the National Amalgamated Approved Socie- ty. These two events constituted a set back to progress, especially in the In- dustrial Department of the Co.'s busi- ness, and it is a compliment to the directorate, the officials and the agents of the Pearl that notwithstanding these retrograde agencies such splendid re- sults stand to the credit of the Col The total income for the year amount- ed to £ 3,047,869 Is. lid., being an in- crease of £ 98,202 19s. 2d. over that of the previous year—a good stride in the right direction. In the Ordinary Branch the income amounted to £ (518,173 17s. 10d., which is £ 51,755 7s. 2d. greater than that of the prev- ious year—a good record. The number of Policies issued during the year in this Branch was 25.279, assuring the sumoft2,090,507, and producing a New Annnai Premium Income of -691,633 Is. 4d.

MIL KIMPTON'S REPLY TO MR PREECE PRICHARD. Sir ,-Much as I dislike newspaper correspondence, I feel I ought to reply to Mr. Prichard's letter in your last, issue. If he will do me the honour of calling upon me I will gladly go into the matter with him. The facts I gave were taken from the Parliamentary- Report of the Labour Commission by Miss E. Orme, Assistant Lady Com- missioner, and there is no doubt that every word I said could be proved up to the hilt. Mr. Prichard is at liberty to see this report. The subject of "young women serving in drinking liars" is not one to be treated lightly, and I can assure him that I only made statements that are irrefutable/ Had lie attended the lecture he would have discovered my references to publicans to have been, on the whole, extremely sympathetic and not harshly critical. It's so easy to form a wrong judgment oil what one hasn't heard.—Yours verv truly, 'A. E. KIMPTON.
"BRONCHO" AND BRITISH COLUMBIA. Mr. Editor,—I am fortunate to re- receive the "Leader" every week, and am always pleased to hear about home affairs. I was quite taken up with a letter which bore the signature of Broncho." Now I have not the faint- est idea- who "Broncho" is. but hv his observations about British Columbia I seriously question whether he has ever been there. He stated that 2 dollars a day was barely a living wage in B.C. Such a remark proves that he is totally ignorant of the prevailing conditions here. In Victoria the least wages paid is 3 dollars a day of 8 hours, or 18 dollars weekly. A person can get good board and lodgings for 6 dollars weekly which leaves him 12 dollars or £2 101'1. to do as he likes with. I find that pro- visions are practically the same price as at home; meat is a little cheaper out here; while all kinds of delicious fruits such as peaches, strawberries, etc., can bo got very cheap here—in some in- stances for merely picking them where they grow. The bay and rivers abound with salmon, halibut and other fish, and people generally here indulge in angling salmon in their spare hours; and I as- sure the "Leader" readers that if fresh salmon is a rare dish at home, it is quite common in B.C. The wealth of the country is moce evenly divided here and the prosperity of Victoria can be indeed from the fact that there is an auto- mobile to every seven persons in the city. Practically every family owns one, and in the summer evenings the bay and straits are alive with motor I launches owned by the working class. To rent a house here would be dear at any price. People take advantage of the system of paying a couple of hun- dred dollars down and the balance as rent every month, with the result fhat 915 per cent, own their piece of freehold land and home. Ownership of property encourage them to make every improve- ment, and there are beautiful homes to be seen in Victoria with their well kept lawns, .flower gardens, etc. 1 There is quite a number of Welsh people in the city, and Welshmen hold very prominent positions in Govern- ment and Municiual work. There is a. Welsh Society here, and ocials, etc.; are held every month, which does a lot to keep the Welsh people together. there are many Ni-ealtily Welshmen who are members of the society, including Mr. G. R. Hughes, a millionaire, who mixes freely with all the members. Class distinction is conspicuous by its absence. Surely no one expects to pick up gold m the streets. I assure Broncho that the streets here are as void of gold as the streets of "Sweet 'Berdar," hut I must admit that to a man of energy and grit, Canada, or rather British Colum- bia, holds out strong inducements. I (ion t know whether Broncho is pos- sessed of these qualities or not, but one can see by his letter what his motives are, and I should imagine that the green-eyed monster prompted him to write. I hold no brief for Victoria, but I am simply stating facts as I have fcnnel them. The only article I find dearer is dot hing, especially suits and costumes, which are 50 per cent. dearer than in the Old Country. I could easily "bring forward other conditions if I wanted to induce people to come to B.C. But it is better for people to emigrate on their own responsibility. If "Broncho" ever conies to A ictoria he will locate me easily, and I will prove to him that his assertion that a person is better off in the Old Country on 25s. a week is utter nonsense. Trusting these facts will be interesting to the Aberdare public. — Yours faithfully, DAI THOMAS (Late/Aberama n,) 1326 Johnson Street, Victoria, B.C. P S.—My Rugby friends will be glad to know that the Victoria Club, of which I have the honour to be Captain, has had a successful season, and beat, amongst others the Australian Team, who came to play the Pacific Coast Teams. The Hughy game is of a high standard here, and is booming quite fast.
