MOUNTAIN ASH MEDICAL DEAD- LOCK. There has been no definite move made by either side in the medical deadlock at the Alount. Both sides are going on in their own way, and matters now seem in the position of a fight to a fin- ish. The question seems likely to de- velop into one of which side is the stronger, and the one which holds the strongest, hand will win. It is said now that the doctors are taking their own line and are attending patients on pre- cisely the same terms as the AVork men's Committee have offered, but the com- mittee themselves are not recognised. The medical men have had small tickets printed containing the following declar- ation "1 hereby give notice that I ob- ject to a poundage to be deducted from my wages for the Medical Committee. Signed It is said that about 3,000 have been printed and distributed at the Surger- ies, but that only a small percentage have been returned to the office, where their recipients were instructed to take them. The Medical Committee have had several replies to their advertisement for locum tenens, but nothing definite will be done until the sub-committee re- ports to the general committee, which will meet in a day or two. The inten- tion is to appoint two doctors, one being stationed at Miskin and the other a. Penrhiwceiber. In accordance with the decision of the men's meeting, sub- scriptions have been collected to cover present liabilities, and so far the re- sponse has been very satisfactory.
THE SECOND LIBERAL CANDIDATE Two fresh names are now put for- ward in connection with the decision of the Liberal Federation to run a second candidate for the Merthyr and Aberdare Boroughs. They are Mr. Robert Mond, brother to Mr. Alfred Mond, M.P., and the Rev. J. Morgan Gibbon, London. •
