Vale of Neath Railways.
Vale of Neath Railways. Mr. Stanton and the Use of Canals. The question of whether canals afford any effective competition with a railway company serving the same district was a matter again before the Select Com- mittee of the,. House of Commons, pre- sided over by Mr Soames, on Monday, on the resumption of the consideration of the Great Western Railway Bill. This Bill, amongst other matters, seeks powers to construct two small railways across the Neath Valley to assist the colliery development on the west side of the valley. Mr John Williams, M.P. for Gower, said there was practically a virgin coal- field on the west side of the Vale of Neath, and his opinion was that the fact that there were no facilities to get the coal away had been responsible for the failure to develop that coalfield. The building of the railways proposed would enable the present output to be enor- mously increased. Witness said in cer- tain circumstances it would be possible to ship coal by canal, but not by this canal. Given a canal of 300 yards' width and modern tipping machinery it would be satisfactory. But the Neath Canal could never he of any use. Mr. Charles B. Stanton, miners' agent for Aberdare and district, said he wanted to see these developments take place, because it would afford further employment and alternative employ- ment, and thus conduce to better con- ditions. Answering Mr. Balfour Browne, K.C., witness said he did not think canals as a rule were any use for traffic in these days. He liked to see them, but to his mind they were only of use for boys to go "tiddling" in. (Laughter.) Mr Rhys Howells, mining engineer and agent for the Aherpergwm Collier- ies, and Mr. Daniels, of Messrs. Daniel and Co., mining engineers, of Swansea, agents for a number of owners, gave evidence in favour of the proposed rail- way facilities. The latter said they were only waiting for these new rail- ways to be started before starting to sink new pits. Mr Thomas Jones, managing director of Rock Colliery, Glyn Neath, and Mr. George Barnard, chairman of the Parish Council of Neath Lower, also gave evidence in favour of the proposals in the Bill. This concluded the Great Western case. Mr. Talbot, K.C., then addressed the Committee for the opposition of Colonel Edwards Vaughan, stating that the effect of the Bill if passed and the rail- ways built would be to enable Ynysar- wed Colliery Company to get their coal on to the railway without crossing his land. He would thus lose his wayleave, which amounted to about t600 a year. Evidence was given by Colonel Ed- wards Vaughan. D.L., C.C., J.P., in support of counsel's statement. Cross-examined, witness said there was a clause in his lease with the same company regarding the Glyn Merthyr Colliery Company, which bound them to send all their coal over his land and pay a Id. a ton, but there was no binding clause in regard to Ynysarwed. There was no legal right to compensation, but he thought he had a strong moral right to receive something. With the calling of an expert wit- ness Colonel Vaughan's case closed, and the Committee adjourned. On Tuesday, Mr Balfour Browne, K.C,. on behalf of the Neath Canal Company, addressed the Committee, and contended that the object of the Great Western, as was the object of all railway companies, was to throttle this and all canals, and they had deliberate- ly planned to do so. Legislation had been specially passed in past years to prevent railway companies from extin- guishing canals or throwing them dere- lict, and he asked the Committee not to sanction proposals that would have that effect. Mr A. W. Williams, chairman of the Neath Canal Company and of the Neath Rural Council, gave evidence in sup- port of the Canal Company's opposition, and bore out counsel's statements with regard to the proposals of the company to bring them up-to-date. He person- ally doubted the development that was spoken of as about to take place in that valley. Mr. George C. Williams, engineer and general manager of the canal, gave evi- dence of how the railways would inter- fere with the canal. Cross-examined, he agreed that he had refused to meet the railway com- pany's officials to discuss these details, as his company preferred to fight the Bill as it stood. The Committee eventually adjourned.

ABERDARE COUNTY SCHOOL GOVERNORS'…
ABERDARE COUNTY SCHOOL GOVERNORS' MEETINGS. Sir.-ln view of the revelations made at the last Council meeting concerning the doings of the Governors of the Aberdare County Schools, would it not be advisable for the Press to attend the meetingsr1 As things are the public- have no direct and reliable 'information as to how the blame should be appor- tioned for what has happened in the December and January meetings. The public want to know and have a right to know who is responsible for the un- seemly scenes that have taken place there.—Yours, etc., ABERDARE.
THE TRECYNON TRAINING SCHOOLS.
THE TRECYNON TRAINING SCHOOLS. Sli-A.s an absolutely independent party I consider that an inquiry should be held over the action of the Guardians in accepting a tender for wiring the Training Schools, Trecynon. I should like to know who the expert advising them was, and what experience he has had of Aberdare Wiring Contractors and electrical work in general. One de- fence, viz., that the lowest tenderer would lose money is quite paltry, as that is the tenderer's business and not that of the Guardians. In some cases the lowest tenderer want an advertise- ment and is willing to pay for one. Putting the lowest tenderer aside. why was the second lowest passed over! This man has done the wiring of the new Council Carsheds, Electricity Offices and certain overhead work under the specification of the London Consult- ing Engineer to the Aherdare Council, and has put in good satisfactory work. He has also carried out a large electrical scheme in Aberdare to the value of some £ 1,500. He has further done other satisfactory work for the Aher- dare District Council and their rate- payers, and he can iind satisfactory sureties. If the Guardians had a pro- per specification drawn up, then, in face of the fact that contractors had in addi- tion to provide proper sureties, they should, in duty to the ratepayers, have accepted the lowest tender, and they have no excuse that any local Govern- ment Auditor should accept for not do- ing so. If the lowest tenderer has not had sufficient experience (and I do not say that he has not, as I do not know). that perhaps might count; but why pass the second lowest tender? Surely any contractor in Aberdare could carry out a small straightforward wiring job such as the one at the Trecynon Training Schools is.—Yours, ANN A. FAIR.
THE TRECYNON TRAINING SCHOOLS.
THE TRECYNON TRAINING SCHOOLS. Dear Sir,—I wish to draw the atten- tion of the Aberdare ratepayers and general public to the ridiculous and un- businesslike way in which the Build- ing Committee of the Merthyr Board of Guardians recently dealt with the ten ders of the Electric Lighting of the Tre- cynon Training Schools. f think it fully time for the ratepayers to put competent business men on these com- mittees, because it seems that the ob- ject of those in office at present is to run through the money placed in then- charge regardless of consequences. What does it matter to them if the rates are increased P They are not the ones who suffer. Ir. Prowle has somehow got the impression that he knows all about tenders, etc. To my mind, what he knows about such things is really not worth knowing. Another speech worthy of remark is that of ivli- [I. Owen. I note he has special reasons, but it is significant that he keeps them up his sleeve-a bit of a conjurer, it seems. But we have no room on the Board of Guardians for conjurers, we want business men. Why can't they be straight-forward and state openly their exact reasons (if any) for accepting tins particular tender, without, apparentJv, considering any of the others. Accord- ing to the rules of the game, all things being equal, the contract should htve been given to the lowest tenderer. If their reasons were sufficient for pa over that tender, why use the fact as a lever for jumping over another witho it consideration? There is no possibility of any deviation from the clauses men- tioned in the specification, no matter who does the work. And as for M- Howfield's remark that it is imponan: that work of this kind should be pro- perly carried out, why should he worry about that, even supposing him to be competent to form judgment on the matter? The work would have to pass a most rigorous test by the Council Engineer and Mains Superintendent, both of whom are, without question, competent to carry out the test. I think it at least due to Mr J. A. Bosher and Mr T. O. Morgan that the Guardians should publicly apologise for the slurs they have (perhaps unwitting- ly) cast upon them.—I am, etc.,
THE MAN IN THE STREET.
THE MAN IN THE STREET. THE ABERDARE AND MERTHYR GUARDIANS. Sir,—If every public body, when ask- ing for tenders, treated their tenderers as the Aberdare and Merthyr Guardians have lately treated the tenderers for the lighting of the Trecynon Training Schools, no contractor of repute would waste his time and risk his reputation by applying for such work. I would like to ask why the Guardians put con- tractors to the trouble and expense of quoting for the work, if, as they say, the successful contractor had already done work for them, and that they had confidence in him. I do not so much complain that I did not obtain the con- tract, but I do complain that the low- est tenderer not only did not succeed, but obtained into the bargain a very bad advertisement, either because the Guardians had no reasons, or because they had reasons and were too cowardly to state them in public in case their reasons would not stand the light of day. Under the terms of the specifica- tion, all contractors were bound to Sllp- ply exactly the same work, and had to provide sureties which were quite suffi- cient to protect the Guardians. Mr Howfield stated that they were getting a bargain, but why had not the Guardians the intelligence to get the biggest bargain possible, which would only be honest when dealing with other people's money? Mr. Prowle stated that he had great experience in accepting tenders; this is very easy, as any novice can accept tenders to a strict specification, as the one in question was. Why did Mr Prowle accept the lowest tender for the Cardiff Street Co-operative contracts rr Mr. Prowte had any experience in tendering for work, and then was treat- ed in the same manner as the Guardians treated the unfortunate lowest tender- ers, he would tell another tale, which would go down better with the rate- payers and the Local Government Audi- tor than the present one. Mr. T. T. Jenkins asked what ex- planation the Auditor was to receive. The reply to his question was to move an amendment. My reply is, that the ratepayers should see that they get back the money which was thrown away by unbusinesslike (to put it mild- Iv) Guardians. I have carried out many contracts for the Aberdare Urban District Council and others, as most Aberdare people know, at prices per contract ranging up to -02,000. The job in question is only, after all, a comparatively small and very simple straightforward one, and I could find sureties in double the amount asked for to carry it out to the satisfac- tion of the Guardians and the Council's electrical engineer, at my price of £ 321 10s., or £ 21 odd less than the sue- cessiul contractors, and I have no doubt but that the lowest tenderer could do likewise. Instead of this we have both got a dastardly advertisement. When local contractors, other than the favoured one, applied for specifications, they should have been told that their efforts were of no use, as the Guardians advertised only because a public body are compelled by law to advertise. This would have saved them both ex- pense and nasty insinuations. I trust the ratepayers will take this matter up and see that fair play is done, and that in "future proper business men are put on important committees. — 1 am, sir. (Lowest but one), J. A. BOSHEII, Kngineer and Contractor. 24 Canon Street, Aberdare.
DOGS AS AN AID TO THE POLICE.
DOGS AS AN AID TO THE POLICE. Sir,—During the past year or two much has been said with reference to the "police dog," but it is only at the present moment that the value of the dog has become known to members of the police force with regard to the pro- tection of individuals against the would- be law-breaker. It is. indeed, astonish- ing that this matter has not received more attention in past years, and that the police have been so slow to take advantage of the many possible uses of so courageous an animal as the dog, especially for protection while on a lonely beat. The dog for many hun- dreds of years has played a nobler part in the warfare of nations, and in the days when hand-to-hand fighting took place many a dog proved a worthy ser- vant and helper of his master. But during recent, years warfare has altered to such an extent that the dog as a help in this kind of employment would be of little or no value. Dog senses are much more acute than those of man. especially the senses of scent and hear- ing, which are very highly developed in this animal. The blood-hound for many years has been of great value to the police for tracking purposes, but as a guard is of very little use. Undoubted- ly the dog, which is fast becoming a favourite both as a companion and a protector, both of person and property, is the Airedale terrier. This animal was originally half a hound, and is sup- posed to have been a cross between a terrier and an otter hound. During re- cent years, however, the hound has been bred out. and the dog of to-day may be called a large terrier with all the grit and activity of his race, which renders him so formrdable an animal. The police of Germany and Belgium are cer- tainly ahead of us in this matter, for dogs are -used by them to a great extent. The species used is more like our sheep- dog, but it has a more wolf-like appear- ance. Undoubtedly the chief authority on the subject of the training and general management of the police dog in England is Major Richardson, whose book, "War, Police, and Watch-dogs," deals with the matter in every detail. The best. way to encourage the use of the Airedale as a police dog in England 15. to endeavour to induce members of the police force to keep these animals, which would, if properly trained, un- doubtedly prove their value to their owners before many months would elapse.—Yours, etc., W. D. KENSHOLE.
-_---------When the Good News…
When the Good News first reached Aberdare. It created considerable excitement, But as week after week went hy, and many well-known and highly-respected Aberdare people spoke out freely, and their statements were published in the public press, there was no longer room for doubt. Aberdare people said-- I his must be true." 'VeIl. here just such another statement, and it comes from Aberdare. hs. H. HlIssell, of Pleasant View. Bond Street, Aberdare, says: Mv kidneys had given me trouble for many years, on and off. I used to get severe backache and headaches. I was sub- ject to spells of giddiness, and often felt depressed. I have had rheumatism in niy feet and legs, and the urinary sys- tem was disordered, too. The water was painful, and contained a gravelly sediment. "I have tried various medicines for the complaint, but Doan's backache kidney pills are the best medicine 1 have ever taken; they gave me the I Jiei I needed. I feel stronger now, and the pams are never so severe as they used to be. Whenever I have had occasion to use Doan s pills, they quickly removed the trouble. I cannot speak too highly of them, and I recommend them a't every opportunity. (Signed) (Mrs.) A. Russell."
