CODREAMAN. DEPARTURE. The Rev. J. Lewis, minister of Hebron (C.M.) left Aber- aman on Monday last, and sailed from Liverpool on Tuesday for Canada, he having been elected by the Gýmanfa .of Calvinistic Methodists to go there as a missionary for a period of at least three months. His work will involve visiting the Welsh communities in that country in order to effect a closer re- lationship between them. Mr Lewis's wide experience, both in religious mat- ters and as a traveller in foreign coun- tries, will stand him in good stead on his mission. We wish him every success in this beneficent work.

Mining Accidents. On Friday last at Powell's Pit, Cwmdare, John Richards, 25 Bryn Terrace, Cwmdare, sustained a frac- tured leg while following his employ- ment as collier. On Tuesday, about leaving time, James Davies, Mill Street, Trecynon, was instantly killed through being run over by a journey of trams at Nant- melvn Colliery. The young man is the son of Mr and Mrs John Davies, and was quite a favourite among his com- rades. The deceased was only 24 years of age. On Wednesday morning, in the course of the night shift, Rees Rowlands, Mill Street, received severe injuries. His foot was crushed between a tram and po6t. The unfortunate man, who is a haulier, was found by a timberman over 2| hours after the accident. It is feared that amputation of the foot will be necessary. On Tuesday afternoon William Wil- liams, 10 Front Long Row, Abernant, sustained severe injuries to his head and back through a fall of." top" coal while following his employment at Bwllfa No. 1 New Pit. He was taken home in the Bwllfa Ambulance Van. W. Allen, 14 Maelgwvn Terrace, sus- tained severe injuries to his back and legs Through being squeezed be- tween two full trams at Nantmelyn Colliery on Wednesday. I
Letters to the Editor. ABERCYNON MINISTER AND SPIRITUALISM. Sir,-Kindly permit me a little space in your paper to^make a few notes on An Open Letter to the Rev. M. Jen- kins," which appealed in your last issue over the nom-de-plume of Seeker after Truth." At the outset allow me to remark that the very pen-name chosen by your correspondent strikes me as being hypocritical, for were he a con- scientious seeker after truth," surely he would have published his name and address, so that the reverend gentle- man might talk to him with the object of exchanging views and opinions. But it cannot be denied that Seeker after Truth" is a clever strategist. He frames the opening statement and the pen-name so skilfully that the unwary may be trapped and the impartial at- tracted. His opening sentence seems quite harmless and free from guile, and the reader pictures a thoughtful, medi- tative person staggering under the weight of his deliberations as to which path he should follow to reach the ever- lasting truth-whether that of the old- established, traditional worship of the churches or that of the newly-arrived (in Abercynon) spiritist cult, which possesses the advantage of novelty and meddlesomeness. After many weary days of such struggling our friend hies him to hear the Rev. M. Jenkins preach, but being still unsatisfied hE cries out like Goethe (though with mor< uncertainty, less cause, and infinitel3 less sincerity, I think), "More light, more light." Such, if I mistake not, is the mental image our friend would hav( us conjure up before us on reading Lis letter—indeed, such was my vision, anc within me there surged up a great pity for the poor, earnest, halting truth- seeker. But as he proceeds, his innate honesty, unconsciously perhaps, asserts itself (or does he lose his cunning?), and throwing aside his lightly-donned cloak of impartiality he reveals himself as-a Spiritist, no longer a harassed, worn-out seeker after truth, but a seeker of "spooks" and follower of I'mediiims"-wonderful metamorphosis Now that we have seen what he is let us hear what he has to say. He con- demns the Rev. M. Jenkins for de- nouncing Spiritism as "trickery and witchcraft," but brings no proof why it should not so be called. In our humble opinion Mr. Jenkins was right, though we should have said "trickery and devil- ry," for as to the "trickery," can our friend deny that Spiritists in other countries have been exposed and brought to a confession of their frauds? Does "Seeker After Truth" know what happened to the Eddy Brothers in America? Has he heard of the end of the "materialisation seances" of Mr. and Mrs. Holmes, with whom Madame Blavatsky, the notorious founder of Theosophy, was connected? The mani- festations of these Spiritists were pro- nounced genuine by some of the most eminent scientific men of the day, in- cluding Robert Dale Owen, who had written in glowing terms about them. The spirit generally materialised was the well known Katey King, whom Sir William Crookes photographed many times, and from whose head he cut locks of hair. This fraud succeeded for some time. but at last it was exposed, and Katey King proved to be Eliza White. She confessed to the fraud, and explained how the trick was worked. The shock of the exposure was more than poor Robert Dale Owen co\ild bear. He became insane, and for a time was confined in a lunatic asylum. ("The Fraud of Theosophy Exposed," J Z. Maskelyne. page 35). Again, when Madame Blavatsky tried Spirit- ism on her own in Cairo, a stuffed glove that she had used for a spirit hand was found, with other contrivances, in the back of the cabinet. The enraged aud- ience nearly killed her. Surely things such as this deserve the name of "trickery." I know I shall be told, that Spiritists in Abereynon and district have not been exposed, and that ex- posures of Spiritism in America and Egypt have nothing to do with the case. My answer is that the Spiritists here are merely elementary amateurs, and that Spiritism everywhere is the same thing-in Egypt and Abercynon. The epithet "devilish" (I beg pardon, witchcraft—more euphemistic) might also he justified from Holy Scripture, and that alone is a Christian's final authority. Of course, if the Spiritists refuse to believe the Word of God, we have to treat them simply as we treat other anti-Christian sects--i.e. toler- ate them outside the churches. But if they accept the Bible as God-given, we must oppose them with arguments from the Book, and judging by that stand- ard, Spiritism is the work of devils. The dead do not return, the Bible op poses the notion right throughout. But the devil and his slaves personate I the departed in order to lure the living. Iherefore, I maintain that the Rev. M. Jenkins was quite accurate in his defini- tion of the sect and its tenets. Again, sir, as regards your corres- pondent's reference to Rev. F. Swain- on and his challenge, I think "Seeker i A.fter Truth" is mistaken or he has been misinformed, for after reading his Open Letter I cut it out and forwarded it Mr. Swainson. Of course it was very wrong of me to go to the fountain-head for the trutJi of thiugs-I ought to have I gone to a seance and asked a spirit for information. But still I did as I have nob'ù above-, and this is the answer I received "St. Barnabas' Vicarage, 558 Cale- donian Road, Hollowav, London, N, 14th June, 1913. Dear Sir,—My brother-in-law, the Rev. Frank Swainson, desires me to thank you for your yesterday's letter. From time to time letters appear in the country papers, always anonymous, statinor that his challenge to the Spir- itists had been taken up and not accept-* ed by him. This is absolutely false. His challenge has never been accepted by the Spiritists, and the challenge from Mr. Swainson and Mr. Maskelyne still stands. The paper you mention is at liberty to publish this.—Yours faithfully, J. YONGE." Surely, that speaks for itself, and if "Seeker After Truth" has any vener- ation for the object of his search, he will surely withdraw his indictment of the worthy Vicar and make him ample apology.—Yours, etc., R. T. EVANS. 25 Fyfe St., Abercynon.

Runaway Horse at Matthewstown. Driver and tfhild Injured. A horse and dray, belonging to the Black Lion Brewery, Aberdare, took fright in Pentwyn Avenue, MatheWs- town, on Wednesday morning, which resulted in serious injuries to the driver, named Cunningham, and a little boy. It appears that the driver was collecting at one of the houses, leaving a boy (his sister's child) in the dray, whilst suddenly the horse took fright and bolted. At the time the horse was feeding from the nose bag, and it is believed that some one threw something at the animal. The driver in trying to stop it fell, the dray passing over him, which caused severe injuries. The little boy is also very much bruised. Both were conveyed to their homes. P.C. David Thomas, of Ynysboeth, and Mr. Dd. Edwards, of Pentwyn Avenue, brought. the horse to a standstill oppo- site the Tynte Hotel. The accident i happened when children were coming from school. Had the horse proceeded ] a little further it is more than likely f that the children would have been run I nto. 1
Biggie: "Have you any distant rela- tives?" Wiggle: "No. They are all near enough to visit me at a moment's notice." "We need brains in this business, young man." "You needn't tell me that, sir.

"Johnny, what is the baby yelling about?" Johnny: "Nothing I just took his milk and showed him how to drink it."
"Chapels on Tick." Church Defence Meeting at Mountain Ash. An open-air meeting in opposition to- the Welsh Church Bill was held in Bruce Street last Saturday evening. An audience of about 600 or 700, pre- sided over by Col. Morgan Morgan, J.P., had assembled to listen to an ad- dress from Mr. 1. B. Rowlands, Neath. The Chairman, in opening the pro- ceedings, remarked that the question was one between Christians and Christians. They were there to court every inquiry, and invited their Non- conformist friends to ask questions at the conclusion. Mr. Rowlands, addressing the meet- ing, said that they were told that the reason for the Church Bill was that the Church was a dwindling minority, that it was an alien church, that it had not done its duty in the Principality, that it was an anti-national Church, and that it was making use of money which it had no right to. The question wai not for politicians to deal with, but had to be looked at from a highly religious point of view. The Royal Commission had pointed out clearly that the Church was not a dwindling minority, and also- that it had more members than any body of Nonconformity. It established the fact that it was not an alien church, and that it was not anti-na- tional. On the latter point he (the- speaker) felt very sore, for as a Welsh- man and a Churchman he strongly ob- jected to be told that he was an 'anti- nationalist. Regarding the seating ac- commodation, the Nonconformists had' more, but the brick and mortar argu- ment was of no account. The Noncon- formists had built chapels on-to use a term that most of them understood- "tick," and many of the more level- headed of them were seriously looking at that. Mr. Ellis Griffith had said that Disestablishment without Disen- dowment was not worth fighting for. Mr. Llewelyn Williams said that Dis- establishment was a programme with money at the back of it. Again, Mr Ellis Griffith asked in the "Liberator." "Are we Welshmen, in the hour of our tardy triumph in the name of religion, to give up the fruits of our victorv? If so, I don't want it." He (the- speaker) had been speaking at New- market and Altrincham. and after those triumphs he was beginningto feel that not only would Mr. Ellis Griffith not want it, but he wouldn't get it. Several questions were put to the speaker at the close. One was in re- ference to the Bishop of Hereford be- ing in favour of the Bill. Mr. Row- lands replied that he couldn't under- stand the Bishop. He was in the Church and yet opposed to it. He drew the Church's money, and the right thing for him to do would be to get out. The resolution opposing the Bill was carried without a dissentient. Mr. W. Jenkins proposed, and Mr M. P. Rees seconded a vote of thankE" to the speaker.
"Cat and Mouse BIIL" Aberdare I.L.P.'s Protest.
