THE 1868 ELECTION. (Continued.) DECLARATION OF THE POLL. In the Merthyr Telegraph for Novem- ber 21, 1868, appears an account of the declaration of the poll. Wednesday morning. November 20th, 186S, was fixed by the Returning Officer as the: illle for the declaration 01 the official statement of the numbers poiitu for each candidate. At an early hour ltfrge crowds congregated on the Market Square in front of ihe huntings, ail wearing the popular colours, magenta and white. Mr. Richard, who stayed on Monday night with Mr Dawes, at Maesy- ffynon," was notified at an early hour on Wednesday morning that it was the in- tention of the men to drag him over the mountain which separates Merthyr from Aberda--e. When the hon. member was ready the carriage, which contained also Mr. D. Davies, Mr. Richard's host, was drawn by ropes through Aberdare to Abernait House, amid continual cheer- ing from ever-increasing masses of peo- ple, the firing of guns, the booming ox cannon, and the display in every direc- tion of the colours of the newly-elected members. Mr. Fothergin had received a similar intimation to that given to Mr. Richard, that the men desired to draw them both over the mountain to Mer- thyr. Finding that the men had deter- mined to carry out this intention ne placed himself at 'heir service. At Aber- nant House, Mr. Fothergill's carriage was attached by means of ropes to the one in which Mr. Richard rode, and in this order the carriages were started. Two or three band* of music accompan ied the procession, which as it left Aber- nant was of an immense length. For- ward the men sped, the uneven moun- tain road and the steep ascent that loomed before them proving no obstruc- tion or impediment to their progress, for work, however difficult, is made light when willing hands and stout hearts undertake its performance. The top of the mountain at last being reached, the hardest position of the journey was over, and the descent to Merthyr was done at a quicker rate. All Penheolgerrig wel- comed the hon. gentlemen with an en- thusiasm that was all the more accept- able, inasmuch as the electors of -at district had behaved so well and support- ed them as ably the day before. Seen from Merthyr, the procession resembled some gigantic dark-coloured monster gliding down the mountain side, while ever and anon the bright flm-b. and rapid puff of smoke of an exploding cannon appeared like an attack made upon the huge object which occupied the whole of the road for quite a mile. Down through Georgetown, where the cheering was tremendous and apparently general, the moving throng entered Merthyr. Seen from the hustings, the sight as the men entered the Market Square was striking and pretty. First a band play- ing "See, the conquering hero comes, worked its way through the crowd to- wards the hustings, followed by a pro- cession of workmen, each wearing the magenta and white, and a sprig of 'eek fastened to their hats; then came an- other band and an equally large proces- sion, with which were carried magenta banners, inscribed with the words "Fothergill." "The Ballot/" etc. >_Jore bands, more men, and seemingly the stream would never end, tor still they came rushing up, filling the Square and its approaches. Among the others was the Irish procession, headed by a very tall Irishman, carrying a magenta- trimmed pike-staff. This was also ac- companied by a band, a«d also had ban- ners. About 500 fine-looking men fol- lowed, each having conspicuously ùió" played in his hat a sprig of shamrock and a magenta card cut to resemble the tri-foliate leaves of the national plant. At length, heralded before he was seen, by the resounding cheers of twice ten thousand people, came Henry Richard, standing in his carriage, and acknow- ledging now on this side and now on that, the hearty salutations of his many admirers. He was drawn into the square amid enthusiastic cheering. Mr. fothergill's carriage followed a few 3 ards behind, and he also received an ovation more hearty and more cordiaL than is generally given to members of parliament. ) rom the windows looking out on to the square flags were waved, hands timidly fluttered handker- chiefs as the hon. member passed, and general and hearty shouts of congratu- ™.on rang from every throat. Ihe streets through which the two u^mbers pa-sed were generally decor- ated, and all down High Street nothing 2*as to be seen but magenta and white nags. Mr. Fothergill and Mr. Richard went to the hustings shortly after eleven 0 c'lock. Neither Mr. Bruce nor his re- Presentatifes were present. Mr. Hich-, ani Was "ll'l'ounch'd by h i principal: supporters, and the members of his com- nuttee. Mr. Fothergill was accompanied „?/ Col. Roden, member for Stoke-on- 1 rent, G. Fothergill, Esq,, Mr. Iv. Foth-j ergill, junior. Mr. F. ( raw.-hay, Tre- forest, and a large number of other gen- tlemen from different part.- of the bor- ough. The Returning Officer, who was loudly cheered, said the great contest was now i,over. The race had been run; the iiieiii- ■Jers were tnere present ing themselves at the post to be declared, and it was his duty to inform them of the running. (Cheers, and laughter). And to carty out further the illustration, he woulil venture to express a hope that the race having ocen run, the winners when put into the scale would not be found want- lllg. (,Cheers). The official statement a3 to the. poll gave the numbei of votes re- corded as follows: — For Mr. H. A. Bruce 7Hi R. Fothergill 7,439 H. Richard 11,683 (Pl'olcngl'd cheering.) It now only re- mained for liiiii to declare to them that Mr. Richard and Mr Fothergill weie duly elected to serve as burgesses for ilie borough of Merthyr Tydfil. (Loiiu cheers). Mr. Fothergill was a gentleman known to them all (cheers); he lived among them, and he knew them, as well (cheers); and he .Mr. Evans) be- lieved he would well represent the bor- ough. ("Loud cheers). Mr. C H. James: Yon have 110 right to nlake a speech. Mr. Evans said he had. Mr. James: Leave politics alone. Mr. Evans said he was doing what was perfectly right. (Hear, hear.) The other gentleman must be also well known to tliein all, which was made manifest by the large majority by which he had been returned. (T,(jud cheers.) He had no other duty to\perform, and with again stating that the two gentle- men were duly elected, he would con- clude. (Cheers.) Mr. Richard was greeted with loud and prolonged cheering. He said that theie was an illustration there that day, when compared with what took place on Mon- day, of the old saying, The last shall be first, and the first shall be last." (Cheers and laughter). His first duty was to pour forth his heart in gratitude and thanks to them for their unflinch- ing fidelity to his cause—(cheers)—and he felt tl at the signs of his thanks would be oppressive and overwhelming did he not feel that in fighting his bat- tle they were also fighting their own. (Cheers.) This was the cause of freedom of election—(cheers)—the cause of inde- pendence of the working men of Merthyr. and Aberdare-(cheers)-the cause of per- fect religious equality—(cheers)—and the cause of justice to the whole country, which it had never enjoyed before. (Cheers). He was as proud of the means by which the victory had been won, as he was of the victory itself. (Cheers.) There was no stain upon the Noncon- formist banner to-day. (Loud cheers.) Their battle had been won by an army of volunteers. Among their men theie was not one paid officer. (Hear, hear.) Their solicitors, their canvassers, their committee, their secretaries, their poll clerks, their messengers, and even their very horses were volunteers—(laughter and cheers)—and he was told, though he was not personally aware of the fact, that there was one volunteer donkey en- gaged—(loud laughter)—and that was a. class of animal they generally left to their opponents. (Renewed laughter and cheers.) There could be no mistake thac the victory was a great honour to the working men of Merthyr and Aberdare. (Cheers.) They were not likely in the future to be insulted as they had in times past, by small sprigs of gentility in this neighbourhood—(laughter and cheers)—who in the pompous and affect- ed tone so characteristic of snob—(laugh- ter and hear, hear)—had been accus- tomed to ask them "Who is Henry Richard; we never heard of him before-" —(laughter and cheers)—although that might be as much the sign of their ig- norance as of his own inferiority. (Con- tinued laughter and loud cheering). There could be no mistake but that these gentlemen would know him here- after. (Cheers.) He had now been ele- vated upon the shoulders of more than eleven thousand working men of Mer- thyr and Aberdare, (cheers and a voice, "And Dowlais,") and not only could these working men see him, but the whole kingdom could see him. (Loud cheers.) It was his pride that he could enter into the House of Commons, car- ried there by the whole body of the peo- ple, and lift up his head as proudly as anyone among the 657 other members; because no man, he contended, would be there under such circumstances and by so large a majority as he would. (Pro- longed cheering.) Now that they had won the victory, let them act with mod- eration. (Cheering.) Do not let them triumph too much over those who had suffered defeat. (Cheers.) It was the i conduct of a man and a Christian to be kind and generous towards those who had failed in their object. (Cheers.) Let them remember that though they were triumphant and rejoicing, others were sore at heart, and, therefore, deal kindly with them. (Loud and prolonged cheers.) Mr. Fothergill, who was received with vociferous cheering, said this was a joy- ful and grand day for him. After the eloquent and able address they had just heard from his friend—for he could call him his friend—Mr. Richard, he wouid not detain them long; but he could not think of the position in which he stood without thanking thein again and again and again for the kind way in which j they had stood by their old friend and i neighbour. (Loud cheers). He had been fighting the battle of freedom of action, freedom of opinion, and freedom of vot- ing. (Cheers). He told his own work- men long before the election that they wer-2 free to vote as they chose. vHear, hear.) He was now fighting for the saiiie privilege for other men. (Cheers.) H.3 was struggling for the ballot—(cheers)— and let him tell them that in doing so he had fought against the screw, and it applied more powerfully than he be- lieved possible. (Cheers, and cries of "shame.") Many ha.l made the screw waver, and obliged it to give way— (hear, hear)—but on the whole he had lost thousands of votes through the screw. (Cheers, and cries of "shame.) But tho generality of the workmen had stood by him, and by doing so they had broken the screw. (Prolonged cheers.) The ballot was the only protection against this dangerous instrument of co- ercion, and the ballot they would cair.v, and next session if it was possible, (Lou I cheers). The bonuigh had sent ( two men to Parliament who would vote shoulder to shoulder—(cheers)—and when the ballot came 011 there should be no hesitancy on the part of the two members for Merthyr. (Loud cheers). Mr Richard and himself would advocate the ballot, both in the House and in its cor- ridors. and 111 fact, wherever they went and wherever they could they would support the measure, and would make every effort to carry it. (Prolonged cheers.) lie had thanked them collect- ively for the honour they liacl done him; end let him now thank his own WCVK- men. (Cheers.) They had stood by him firmly, and lie thanked the men of Ply- mouth and the men of Aberdare a thou- sand times for having supported him in the way they did. (Cheers.) Never was his heart so near them as it was now. (Cheers.) He had been sneered at and laughed at because he said he could take his workmen to his heart. (Cheers.) He would still say so despite the derision and sneers lie might excite only that the position had altered. The workmen had now taken him to their hearts instead. [ (Prolonged cheers.) It was. the working ;en, and the working 'men's "dirty hands," that had carried him into IV1 liament, and now he again thanned them, and said God bless the workmen and their honest hearts. (Uproarious cheering, which continued for some miti- utes.)

A MODEL LESSON. (Continued.) You will see by the explanation now the meaning of the word rate," and that the rate-payers" are the people who are living in the cottages and houses of the district. "Please sir, my father is not going to pay the rates, again." Ho, ho, is that so, Tommy r And why, may I ask ? He is not going to pay any money again until he has been at the seaside, to get a real bust-up." My mother is not going to pay the rent this time, because she wants money to go to Pofthcawl for a holiday." 0 N, ever mind Jimmy, that is your mother's business and not ours. Now, let us go back to "schools" and "school attendance," because I want you 10 understand thoroughly how you can neip to reduce the rates of this, your own town of Aberglo. There are about 12,000 children attending school in this town. Remember that figure, 12,000. The aver- age cost per head is from three to five pounds. For our purposes we'll say that the cost per child in Aberglo is X4. Here you have 12,000 children, each cost- ing o£.1 in the year to educate. Who can tell me the total cost? If one cost X-1, how much does 12,000 cost r = £ 48,000 pounds sir." Well done, Josser. You have done it- mentally by multiplying the £ 4 by 12,000. Now the Government, or Board of Education in London, has agreed to give, or pay to the Education Committee of every district in the country, a cer- tain amount of money called grants in aid. This money amounts to a little over £ 2 per child in average attendance. How many children did we say were-in the schools of our town ? "12,000 sir." Yes. If the 12,000 attended every aay in the school y £ ar, and a grant of jb2 was given by the Government for each child, how much money would the Aber- glo Education Committee receive? £ 24,000 sir." Yes, quite right. But stay a minute. Do all the 12,000 children attend every day the school is open ? No sir. Tommy Jumbo is miching (truanting) all the time." "Yes sir, and Iky Doolan is going to the shop for his mother three times a week." I saw Spico Jones in the shop cart: All right, all right. You see there are many boys and girls away, missing from school every day. Of course, some are ill and a few have good excuses. Instead of having a regular attendance of the 12,000 children whose names are on the registers we have only about 10,000 at- tending. Thus, we find that about 2,000 children are absent every day the school is open. Although we have 12,000 names on the books there are only about 10,000 in average attendance. So, instead of having £ 24,000 in grants we get only i;20,000. That is < £ 4,000 less than we should have had if the children attended well. A penny rate in our town produces about £800. So the £ 4,000 lost in grants must be made up by the local rate of 5d. in the pound. Think of that. Now, lis- ten again. Bad attendance not only causes loss in grants of money but every half day lost means losing useful lessons. The boy or girl absent gets backward in his or her class, get, discouraged, and then rebels against school, teacher and all other authority. I think you all see now the importance of regular attend- ance at school. Let me see. Now, we will just go over the points dealt with in the lesson, first who provides the schools of Aberglo? "The Council or Education Commit-, tee." What is the population of Aberglo? "60,000 sir." Well done. How is the town governed ? "By the District Council, sir." How are the schools managed ? By the Education Committee, sir. How is the money got to pay the cost of keeping the schools going? B4- Government grants and local rates, sir." ) You are good indeed. How can you, boys and girls, help to keep down the loea I ra tes ? "By attending school every day." Well, as you have learned so well you may now go and have half an hour's play in the yard.

In an asylum two worthies named Sandie and Tarn formed a plan to make their escape. Sandie said to Tam: "Bend doon and I'll get on yer back, and get on the top o' the wall and haul ye up." Sandie got on the top of the wall and slid down on the other side, saying: "Tarn, I think ye'll better bide anither fortnicht, for you're no near sane yet."
MOUNTAIN ASH MINER KILLED At Mountain Ash Police (Station on Saturday afternoon, Mr. R. J. Rhys, district coroner, conducted an inquiry touching the death of Henry Burton, a collier, of 9 Arnold Street, Mountain Ash. Wm. Wilson, a step-son of de- ceased, identified and stated that the accident occurred on Thursday, July 24th. Burton was 51 years of age. and worked as a miner in Nixon's Navigation Pit. Witness worked in the same pit, but in No. 9 district. Burton was married and had one boy aged 14 years. Thomas John Weeks stated that he would be 15 years old in Decem- ber, and had worked regularly with deceased in a stal!. About 11.15 on Thursday morning Burton was hit- ting a wedge with a sledge on the right-hand side of the stall. Witness was filling coal, and heard something crack. He ran back across the road, and as he was turning round the road post, the fall caught him and hurt his hand. Coroner You've had a lucky es- cape. <. Witness, continuing, said that Bur- ton had not knocked any sprags out that morning. Robert Evans, a collier, working in the next place in the 7 ft. seam, de- posed that he heard the fall and heard the boy call out. When he got there Burton was completely cover- ed. About 10 yards had fallen, part slip and the top as well. The roof had discharged over the posts. Bur- ton was quite dead when recovered. Clement Goulding, fireman of the district, stated that he had visited the place prior to the accident be- tween 9.30 and 10 that morning. It didn't look very good, for the slip of coal had left the roof. Burton had placed 4 sprags there, and in wit- ness's opinion they were enough. It would have been safer if Burton had gone to the top of the roof to work it off From the position where the body was found he must have got into the. middle. About 6 yards of roof had fallen, some of it over the gob, and 3 sprags were discharged. Burton was fairly good when told to do anything. Witness told him to work the whole through and not to go to the upper side. The fall broke off quite straight. In witness's opinion Burton was not wedging at the time of the fall. Thomas Doward. undermanager, stated that he was in Burton's place on the previous day. The slip of coal ran out to a loose end and was about 18 ft. all of it. The place was fairly well timbered, but Burton made the mistake of going to the micicde instead of the end. He in- variably obeyed orders, but couldn't have done so OIl this occasion. The Coroner endorsed the inquiry as "Accidental death," adding, "It may have been an error of judg- ment."

TERRIBLE KIDNEY TROUBLE. Apparently Hopeless Case Cured by Dr. CasselFs Tablets. Mrs. Emma Casey, 9 Pool Bank Street, Nuneaton, says: "Dr. Cassell's Tablets saved my life when doctors had pro- nounced my case hopeless. Acute kidnQy disease attacked me suddenly. I was losing blood and found myself getting terribly weak. Operation was advised to remove a stone in the kidneys, but I felt too old (j6) to undertake the risk, and all the medical attention i had proved unavailing. I was little more than skin and bone; I had frightful spasms of wind, knife-like pains in my back, and I was constipated to an x- cessive degree. I lay in bed for three months, and had to live on barley and water and infants' food. Then my daughter got Dr. CasselFs Tablets. To my surprise I felt immediate relief, and i improved rapidly. Now I am better than before my illness. Dr. CasselFs Tablets are the perfect modern home remedy for Nervous Breakdown, Nerve and Spinal Paralysis, Malnutrition, Wasting, Anaemia, Sleep- lessness, Indigestion, Kidney Trouble, j and Premature Decay.
