MOUNTAIN ASH JOTTINGS. BY LUCIFER Ten days or a fortnight ago the outlook for a sufficiency of water for domestic purposes was rather dark, but to-day, thanks to the showers of blessing which have descended, the local surveyor estimates that the district is saved for at least 3 or 4 months without need of curtailment. At the previous meeting of ths Council it was resolved to issue notices warning people against waste, and to curtail the supply; but, as very frequently happens, no sooner are the bills distributed than the rain comes. The Local Free Church Council and the Mountain Ash District Coun- cil are at loggerheads over the question of Prohibition. A month ago the National Free Church Coun- cil sent round to all District Coun- cils asking them to pass resolutions in favour of Prohibition during the war and for 6 months after 1)pa,e ,vns declared. The letter 'n ques- tion came on at the fag end of the meeting when only 7 members were present, and the resolution was 1 (- jected by 5 to 2. The Local F.C.C. wrote regretting the District coun- cil's attitude, and a warm alterca- tion between the Prohibitionists and anti-Prohibitionists took place at Tuesday's meeting. Mr. Rogers, daspite an appeal by the clerk to let the matter rest, very rightly per- sisted in giving a notice of motion to re-open the question before a fuller Council. There are many schemes falling into arrears owing to the war, and one of the most urgent is Housing. Councillor Hall stated at the Coun- cil meeting on Tuesday that thous- I I ands of families lived in apartments owing to scarcity of dwellings. This is a disgraceful state of affairs, and no words can describe the misery oi families who have to share a small house and exist in crowded rooms. Not only are the elements ol com- mon comfort missing, but even the common decencies of life are impos- sible. No time should be lost im- mediately the war is over to proceed with the erection of a hundred or more municipal dwellings. Moun- tain Ash have been backward in this Itranph of municipal work, with the resnit. that the inhabitants are suffering to-day. ii reply to a threat by Col M. Morgan to appeal against some of the decisions of the Mountain Ash Tribunal, Mr. G. H. Hall said: "Then this Tribunal is only a farce.' What utter nonsense! The military have a perfect right to appeal and are expected to appeal if they think the local decision is. not a right one. If a person who was refused exemp- tion gave notice of appeal would -vir Hall have made the same comment? Does Mr. H&ll say "Then this Court is a farce when the Miners Federation, dissatisfied with judgment of Judge Bryn Roberts, appeal to a Higher Court? Some meml>ers of Local Tribunals take it ?.s an insult when the Military people appeal. The Military have their dutv in perform, and members should have the common sense to recognise it. I
