Mr D. A. Thomas AND THE ABERDARE LIBERAL CLUB. Mr. D. A. Thomas, ex-senior M.P. for Merthyr and Aberdare Boroughs, and President of the Club since its es- tablishment, presided over the annual meeting of the Aberdare Liberal Club 0.1 Monday evening, when there was a fairly large gathering. Mr. Thomas had a very cordial reception, and spoke at some length on political and indus- trial questions. He was supported by .Messn;. M. Wntkins and M. J. Harris, C.C., vice-presidents; Mr. R. H. Miles, treasurer; Mr. Frank Hodges and Mr. Tom Evans (trustees), Councillor W. Thomas, Mr. Emrys Evans, and Mr. F. J. Caldicott (one of the secretaries). Mr. D. A. Thomas, at the outset, assured the audience that lie had no intention whatever of re-entering poli- tical life and becoming M.P. once more for the Merthyr c Aberdare Boroughs. He hoped he was a good Radical still, but he regretted having wasted so much time on political work—time that would have been more profitably spent in other directions both for the sake of the com- munity and himself. But that regret must be qualified by the many pleasant recollections he had of his connection with this constituency. He never had anything but kind treatment during the long period he was their member, and nowhere did he receive greater kindness than at Aberdare Liberal Club. One thins he would always nride himself upon, and that was that he had been elected time after time without any personal canvassing on his part. So far as the ballot was a test, he had en- joyed the confidence of a larger body of men, including workmen, in a greater degree and for a longer period than any man living in Wales to-day. It was now over 30 years since he started public life. He was placed at the top of the poll then, and he had never been anywhere else. He was present at this meeting to suggest that they elect a new president. They were good enough last year to re-elect him when he was under a cloud of unpopularity. He hoped there was no cloud near at pres- ent, but Heaven only knew when such a cloud might come again. The Club wanted a president who would be more active and be able to give them a stronger lead than he was able to, for ""he must confess he was not so strong a party man as he used to be. They ought to have a strong partisan as pre- sident of the Club. He (Mr. Thomas) was rather independent, and this, con- stituency had allowed him to exercise a great deal of independence. There was a lot of humbug and insincerity about party politics, as there had been about the Welsh Revolt against the Tory Education Bill 10 years ago. A sum of £10,000 had been subscribed in Wales, mostly by poor people, in sup- port of that education campaign, but no account rendered as to how it had been spent. The people of Wales were entitled to ask the Government to pass legislation dealing with educational re- form in the direction they wanted. Mr. Thomas briefly referred to his American visit, and then moved the adoption of the Club balance sheet. Mr. M. J. Harris seconded, and the motion was carried. Election of President.—Mr. D. A. Thomas v. Mr. Edgar Jones, M.P. Mr. Morgan Watkins remarked that "Mr. Thomas had occupied this position for a quarter of a century, and it afforded him great pleasure in moving his re-election. Mr. Thomas had been a good friend to the Club, and had heiped them out of low waters more than once. Mr. M. J. Harris seconded, and re- marked that it was always a pleasure to see Air. Thomas among them. Mr. Tom Williams, Gadlys, admitted that Mr. Thomas had done good work for the Club, but inasmuch as he had asked to be relieved, he (Mr. Williams) would move the election of Mr. Edgar Jones, M.P., as president. Mr. David Mor ris, Gadlys, seconded. Mr. D. A. Thomas himself supported the amendment, and appealed to them to allow his name to be withdrawn. Mr Edgar Jones was the senior member for the constituency, he rfdded, and he should be elected to the office of presi- dent, Mr. H. H. Collette supported the election of Mr. Thomas, and remarked that Mr. Edgar Jones had not been in that Club for the last 12 months. àh. George Parr also supported the original motion. Mr. D. A. Thomas was about to put the motion that Mr. Edgar Jones be elected when .Mr. Edgar Rees proposed Mr. Frank Hodges. Mr. Hodges, however, would net al- low himself to be nominated. Mr. D. A. Thomas: Mr. Hodges re- fuses, so there is only one name before us, and that is Mr. Edgar Jones. All in favour of Mr. D. Williams (Blaengwawr) .J lIi a moment, Mr. Chairman. You have been to America, and are inclined to rush business. (Laughter.) There is no greater friend to Mr. Edgar Jones in this room than myself, but I svcport Mr. Thomas. Mr. Thomas: I would rather net. This is very regrettab't. Mr. M. Watkins: All in favour of the re-election of Mr. Thomas. A large number of hands went up, and Mr. Watkins declared the motion carried. Mr. Tom Williams: Are you not go- ing to put Mr. Edgar Jones' name up? Mr. Watkins: Very well. We will have it over again. The names were put up, 9 voting for Mr. Edgar Jones and a large majority for Mr. Thomas. Mr. Tom Williams: Now we are satis- fied. Other Business. Councillor W. Thomas moved, and Mr Tom Evans seconded the re-election of Messrs M. Watkins and M. J. Harris as vice-presidents.—Mr. David Morris wanted new blood in, and moved the election of Mr. Tom Williams. It was time, said Mr. Morris, to remove some of the aristocrats who were in office.— Mr. Williams refused to stand, and Councillor W. Thomas' motion was car- ried unanimously.—Mr. Watkins, in acknowledging, said he would welcome a change. He was not an aristocrat, he was a democrat. If they had any- one ready to take his place he was quite prepared to withdraw from office, but in the meantime some had to put their shoulders to the wheel. Mr. W. D. Morris proposed the re- election of Mr. R. H. Miles as treas- til,el,Carried. Messrs. M. Rowlands and W. W. Rees were elected auditors, and Mr. E. S. Hall re-elected librarian.—Mr Hall's annual report, always one of the pleas- ant features of these meetings, was read by Mr. M. Watkins. A cordial vote of thanks was accorded Mr. Hall for his comprehensive report. The sale of literature was conducted by Mr. Winstone Rees, auctioneer. The following committee-men were elected by ballot: Messrs. F. Morris. Edgar Rees, J. W. Tinney, D. Williams and R. Walters. A vote congratulating Mr. D. M. Richards on his partial recovery from a long illness, was carried, and also a vote of thanks to Mr. D. W. Evans, who has now left the district, for his services as assistant librarian.

Aberdare Young Man Killed. j. Distressing Fatality at Nantmelyn. On Friday morning last a very sad accident, which ended fatally, befel John Oliver Davies, Monk Street, Aber- dare. He was a most bright young man. and was a Sergeant in the local Territorials, and was very popular with the men and his superior officers. The inquest was held at Aberdare Police Station on Monday morning before Mr. R. J. Rhys, coroner. The first witness was John Davies, the father, who said that his son worked with him as assist- ant timberman. On Thursday night his son had knocked out two pairs of timber, but no stones fell down then. Some time later a heavy stone fell right on top of his son. Witness was a few yards farther back at the time, and bis son had not touched the top before the stone fell. They had not started rip- ping the top, but they had bored a hole above the stone which fell. The top was a mixed cliff and had to be shot.- F. Forey, night fireman, said that de- ceased worked in the Oft. seam. It was he who had ordered John Davies, and his son to work in that particular place. They had not worked there be- fore. Witness had visited the spot about half-an-hour prior to the acci- dent, and was only 30 yards away when the stone fell.—Coroner: What was there to account for -the fall of that stone?—There was a slant in the top, which was not visible prior to the fall.— Witness added that the nearest coal- face was about 20 yards away. John Davies (the father) was a most careful workman. The son lived only for a few moments after being extricated from the fall, which amounted to about three trams full. The timber dis- charged earlier in the evening did not affect the stone which fell.—The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death."
Friend: "You'll be missed if you leave the stage." De Ranter: "That's the reason I'm going off. I'm tired of being hit."

Young Liberals' League. I Suffragette Tactics Condemned. Mrs. Lester Jones, Cardiff, was the speaker at a meeting of the Aberdare Branch of the Young Liberals' League on .Saturday evening. Miss A. G. George, Town Schools, presided over a good attendance, the majority present being ladies. Mrs..Jones' subject was "Liberalism from a woman's stand- point," and she referred to the woman suffrage question, and to the latest an- tics of the militant suffragettes. She hoped that those actions would not prejudice anyone against giving women the vote. Woman's proper sphere was notcontinedtothehome.forshecoutd do useful work in public life, especially on Hoards of Guardians. At Cardiff men were very averse at first to lady Guardians, but they recognised now that they could not do without them. There was work for men and work for women. For example, two-thirds of the teachers were women, and rightly so. She appealed to all present to use their influence in obtaining the suffrage for women, for this country would never reach the height of its prosperity until that state came about. The president said she was in thor- ough accord with Mrs. Jones in every- thing she had said. She regretted the foolish tactics of the militant suffrag- ettes, and added that such proceedings should not retard the women from get- ting the vote. Mrs. Grifiiths, Brynhyfryd. asked Mrs. Jones what was the programme of the Women's Progressive Union—did tliev believe in adult suffrage!' Mrs. Joucsfeplied that they did not go so far as llmt, what they asked for at present was to be placed on the same basis as the men. Mr. Aubrey Roberts, M.A., said lie was pleased that Mrs. Jones was tak- ing part in the practical side of poli- tics. Some people, owing to the havoc wrought by the militants, wavered in their faith in the women's movement. But he did not think much of such men. It they were convinced that it was right for women to get the vote. then their faith should be unshaken. Mrs. J ones apparently did not approve of adult suffrage. Personally he quite approved of it, for if only women of property were going to get the vote, a check would certainly he given to social reform. Mr. S. Davies remarked he was not prepared to go so far as Mr. Roberts. Neither was he a believer in the instal- ment plan advocated by Mrs. Jones. He would rather wait until all the women were ripe for the vote, and then give adult suffrage. Mr. J. Evans said lie had always been in favour of woman suffrage, and would favour a Bill giving votes to all men and women of 25 and upwards. Mrs. D. M. Richards referred to the forthcoming Guardians election. She had at for 18 years for the Gadlys Ward, and hoped to he re-elected on April 7th, to enable her to celebrate her coming-of-age." (Laughter.) She would be very glad if five women Guard- 9 ians would he elected in this district- one for each Ward. Mrs. R. H. Milts had promised to contest No. 3 AVard. (Applause.) Now that the Cottage Homes system was growing there was a great deal of work peculiarly for women io connection with Boards of Guard- ians. 11 Mrs. Miles said she heartily opposed the militant section of the movement in favour of votes for women. She had been asked to join them in the begin- ning, hilt she declined, and remarked at that time that if they started those ridiculous tactics they would go mad- and mad they had gone. (Laughter and applause.) Referring to the elec- tion. Mrs. Miles said she had consented to become a candidate for a seat on the Guardians for the Town Ward, and she hoped to have their support. M). Sydney Evans, in a humourous speech, criticised his father's (Mr. W. J. Evans') age limit at which a per- son should get the vote. A fool was a fool, he added, and the older he got the bigger fool he became. Mrs. Walter Lloyd proposed a hearty vote of thanks to Mrs. Lester Jones, and Mr. J. Griffiths seconded., and the motion was carried.
Hockey. ABE-RAMAN LADIES V. CARDIFF LADY TYPISTS. Ladie, were at home to Cardiff Lady Typists on Saturday last, and defeated the visitors by three goals. The home team are of this season's formation, and played fairly good hockey, showing an improvement on previous form. If they paid more at- tention to combination, and kept to their positions instead of wandering, there is every prospect of their develop- ing into a first-class team. During the first half this weakness was very pro- nounced, but they seemed to have pro- fited by their counsel during the inter- val, with the result that their play had improved in the second half. The scorers were: Miss Mabel Morgan, 2 goals; Miss Julia Ingram, 1. The locals are away to Whitchurch next Saturday. The gentlemen's eleven en- tertain Aberdare on Friday next at 4.30, and Penarth Barbarians on Sat- urday next at 4.30 at the Aberaman Park. It is very desirable that a gentlemen's hockey team be foi-med for Aberdare. We have plenty of local talent, and a good team should be formed by next season. The Welsh Hockey Association are anxious fo get as many teams to- gether as possible, and would be very glad to see such a. formation in Aber- dare.

Mr. Keir Hardie, M.P., at II Aberdare. Allegations Against Mountain Ash I Medical Men. Mr. Keir Hardie, M.P., addressed a series of political meetings in his con- stituency last week. On Thursday evening he was at the Market Hall, Aberdare. There was a fair attend- ance, Councillor ldwal Thomas presid- ing, supported on the platform by the hon. member, Councillor E. Stonelake and Mr. Matt Lewis. At the outset of his speech Mr. Har- die referred to matters industrial. Dealing with colliery banksmen, he said it was a great mistake that these were not included in the Eight Hours Act and the Minimum Wage Act. Refer- ring to the work of the Parliamentary Session, the speaker said he had sup- ported the Government fairly stedfast- I v. On the Curates' question in the disestablishment Bill he voted against the Government. The curate was the working man of the Church of England. When the Licensing Bill was before Parliament, he contended that if pub- licans were to be compensated for the loss of their licences, the waiters and bar attendants should also be compensated. He could not see why the rich man should be compensated and the working man and woman thrown out helpless. He (Mr. Hardie) applied the same rule to the curates, and he hoped even now, before the Bill became law, to make it impossible for the curate, so long as he remained attached to the English Church in Wales, to suffer through Dis- establishment. He had never regard- ed the financial part of the Bill as im- portant. The point at issue was—no Church could be bound up with the State, and have its creed regulated by the State, without suffering .serious in- iurv. Coming to the Franchise question, Air. Hardie said he would oppose every kind of franchise giving more votes to men until the women were included. (Applause.) He asked his audience to back him up in his attitude. He was out for adult suffrage—a vote for every man and woman, whether rieh or poor, just because they were men and women. ft would he an act of treachery on the part of men to accept more votes at the price of sacrificing the interests of their wives, mothers and sisters. (Applause.) He did not- expect a General Election for two years. It might come earlier through an accident. = By that time the Liberal and Conservative Parties would be framing their party pro- grammes, and trying to find out what questions were most popular. What organised Labour ought to do was to select the issues of the oil them- selves, and compel those parties to toe the mark. When the two big political parties were framing their election pro- grammes, they were not thinking how much they could do for the working man, but with how little they could take the workmen in. So they must be on their guard against party programmes and party policies. Coming to the attitude of the Tories and Liberals towards the land ques- tion. he ridiculed the attempts of the former, and added that the kind of re- form he wanted was the reform of the landlord from a vampire, living on the vitals of the people, into a useful work- ing member of society. Liberals would possibly proceed on the same lines as they had done in the past. (Laugh- ter.) He wanted a clean cut Socialist fight at the next General Klection, come when it might. He would beg no favour from Liberal or Tory, He would not trim his sails to catch the favouring breeze, but would adopt the red flag and fight or faU under it. (Ap- plause.) The Chairman thanked Mr Hardie for his comprehensive address, and thanked the audience for coming to listen to the lion, member on such a cold evening. He trusted that the message of 1\1 r. Keir Hardie would take root and that many present would become members oi the Labour Army about which they had heard so much. Questions and Answers.-Sensational Rumour Concerning Mountain Ash Doctors. Questions were then invited, am several were asked. The first was Have we a free choice of doctor undei the Insurance Act? If so, how is il the assistants in this valley are not allowed to practise?"—Mr.'Hardie, it replying, said he understood that 011 assistant doctors were under a agreement, and were not allowed tr practise on their own within a certaii radius. This was a resti-ictioii, tliai ought to he removed. Some shopf tried it on, hut that was broken down. The choice of doctor, of course, was lim- ited to the panel. It was illegal for a doctor to take more patients than IH could attend to. Question 2: When the chiefs art away, and if the assistants refuse to at- tend a case, will the Insurance Com- missioners protect the people? I ele not think so. The Commissioners, however, must see that there is a stiffi- cient number on the panel. The third questioner asked Mr. Keir Hardie whether he would raise a cer- tain matter in Parliament. Mr. Hardie replied: I am always pleased to raise any question in Par- liament provided I have facts to had, me up. For instance, I was told, when at Mountain Ash, of a certain incident which is alleged to have arisen owing to the differences existing between the workmen and the medical men. A child was stricken with diphtheria, and the mother went round to every doc- tor in the place, and every one of tliei-a, including the medical officer of health, refused to go and see the child. I hope for the credit of the medical pro- fession that that is not true. If it is true you will certainly hear of it in Parliament. (Applause.) Other questions dealing with Social- ism were asked.

The Doctor Trouble. ANOTHER HOWDY MEETING AT THE MOUNT. Another mass meeting of Messrs Nixon's Mountain Ash and Penrhiw- • ■eiber workmen was held at the VVork- men'ts Institute last Sunday afternoon, There was a paekpd attendance, pre- sided over by Mr E. Lovell, and the members of the sub-committee, Messrs J. Powell, William Lee, David Lewis, H. Sparey, William Bowen, Joseph Jones, Jack Hamer, and William Lam- burn, were present. Mr W. Bowen gave the report of the sub-committee in English, aud Mr D. Lewis in Welsh. The former said that the matter had bevn brought to a head by the doctors interfering with the arrangements made by the Medical Fund Committee. The company were quite willing to stop the 2d poundage, on behalf of the workmen's fund, and to make sure of no error being committed Alderman Morrell asked to go with Mr Sparey and the speaker. Dr .Cahill was approached, and had consented to the terms of the last ballot. They had advertised for doctors, and had received many replies. The doctors, however, had issued a small leaflet with space to sign. and on that ground the colliery company now re- fused to keep the money back at the office, on the ground, as they said. that the men were not unanimous on the question. The doctors had treated them shamefully. He knew a man who had paid into Evans's firm for 35 years, and last week had asked for medical atten- dance for a sick child, and was asked, U Are you aware that I shall want my money?" (Cries of "Shame.") Mr Jabez Grant wanted to hear the agreement read when the poundage of 3d wa,n agreed to. The Chairman: We haven't got it here. (A Voice: "You ought to have it then.") Councillor John Powell said he had the agreement of 1883. on which it was decided that a committee of not exceed- ing one in every 100 of Nixon's workmen should comprise a medical fund com- mittee. This was signed by the doctors, and on the workmen's side by William Abraham, James Branch, George Bishop, Seth Owen, and Francis Smith. Pursuing the question Mr Powell showed that the doctors would be better off under the terms they had refused than they were under the 3d poundage, even if they (the doctors) paid the levies for the hospital, etc., which would only amount to about £ 300. Mr Jabez Grant at this stage handed a newspaper, showing a clause in the agreement that, failing settlement in any dispute, the matter should be re- ferred to arbitration. Mr W. Bowen said that the agree- ment was quite dead. The sub-com- mittee now proposed a new medical fund, and each worker to contribute one shilling per month. That arrange- ment would be temporary until the new doctors were engaged. If the doctors of Merthyr Vale were content with Id poundage-(A voice: "Give us proof.") At this point the meeting was in a general uproar, and cries of "liar" and chuck him out" were bandied about. Mr Bowen (continuing): Why in the name of conscience should wo pay double the amount the men of Merthyr Vale paid? The doctors there were as good if not better. A workman, whose name did not transpire, objected to Mr Bowen mak- ing comparison between doctors. He'd no right to say they were superior in Merthyr Vale. (More uproar.) Bowen: I did not say that. ("You did.") Well the press will have all down that T said. I said -Fqual if not superior." Concluding, the speaker unred the men to agree to the new con- tribution, a.nd it must be understood that all who do not contribute would not sret medical attendance. Mr Jabez Grant: I want to pay my money through the medical committee. A workman: Where are all those doc- tors that were tumbling over each other to come here. (Laughter.) Mr George Garrett wanted to know what machinery had been formed tu carry out the new scheme. Chairman: The sub-committee are here to discus those matters. Mr William Davies urged that the time had arrived for closing up all di- visions—(A voice: "We're all harmy") he hoped they would resolution. A workman said lie had had three children down with measles, and had sent the bottle for medicine, but it came back empty. He had a prescription from Dr Davies-Jones to take to the chemist. Imt what about that? It was all in Latin. and he didn't know what it might cost. The committee had helped him out of his trouble, for which he tlian Iced them. Mr Frank Williams advocated that the doctors be not paid the contribution kept back last week. Mr George Garrett hoped that proper attention would be paid to all those on beds of sickness. Mr Tom Phillips wanted to know if tho company would stop the 16 contri- bution. The Chairman aid that the money would have to be paid at the Hall, and those who paid would get medical bene- fit, and those who did not would accord- ingly get none. Mr William Lamburn said that ail these questions were speculative ones. There would be other meetings called, but 110 urged them to adopt the resolu- tion first. Mr Jack Hamer: We don't wish to do a trick to anyone; the doctors have closed the door against themselves. It is not too late even now to come in on our terms. The resolution regarding the monthly contribution of Is was then put to the meeting, and carried with one dissenti- ent. A question was asked about payment of Dr Cahill, and was answered that tho doctor would be paid for his services both in the past and in the future. Mr John Powell ft is only right that those who have stuck to us should stick to them. Mr John Jeffries wanted to know if they could change the name of any doctor to those who offered their ser- I vices r At this point a vote of confidence in I the sub-committee was passed, and the meeting terminated. i
