THE HEALTH OF LOCAL M P"s.—Mr Rees Da if8, the member for Pembrokeshire, resumed his Parliamentary duties on Monday evening.

RATEPAYERS' LEAGUI:.—We understand that a league of the above nature will shortly be formed amongst the working-men ratepayers of Carmarthen. It will be based on neutral gT)Ujd- DO politics or creed to form part of its programme. The object of the league is to encourage local talent and to protect against "double offices" to officials and servants of the borough, whilst they can live ) respectable and corufortable with one office. One of the proposed rules will bo, that no member is to vote for any cendidate, eithfr Lr the Town Council, Board of Guardians, School Board, &c., unless the j candidate pledges himself to support local talent and to do away with the double offices" that are now so common in the town. It is believed th leagus will be in full swing by the first of November next. THE BOUNDVTIY BETWEEN* THE SEINE NETS AND THE CORACLES.—Trie committee, which was appointed by the C?rlDnnhfll B,y Fishery Boaid to enquire into tl,ig matter, met on Monday at Carmarthen Station. There were present :—Mr St. Vincent Peel, Danyrallt Mr E A Rogers Mr David Lewis, Brigstocke Gaidens and the Clerk (Mr Moigan Griffiths). The committee proceeded by the 1.20 train to Ferryside and then came up the river by beat. The committee decided that the posts had been placed in a proper position according to the bye-laws. Mr David Lewis and Mr E A Rogers pointed out thut the bye-law had not hern made in accordance with Mr Herrington's report on the subject. Mr Berrington. as a rerult of the enquiry he'd in 1895, recommended the division of the disputfd water equally by drawing a line equi-distant between Halfway Rock and Pilglas." rhe boundary ought, therefore, to be about three miles from Halfway rock—instead of which it is only 695 yards from it. The probability, therefore, is that the matter will be re-opened at the next meeting of the Fishery Board. Miss ADELA BONA AT THE COVENT GARDEN ROYAL OpErA.-In the Daily Tchjtraplb for Mon- day is a lengthy article dealing with the arrange- ments made by Sir Augustus Harries for the lloyal Opera Covent Gardens. The cri'ic says, The contraltos are six in number, Meedames Mantelli, Brazzt, Olitzka, Bra-rsi, Bona, and MeissHnger Looking at the names one sees how much English speaking artistes have improved upon the position hitherto held by them. We have a manager now who recognizee the claim3 of native talent and is not afraid to make the fact evident." Tho Madame Bona referred is Miss Adela Bona, the famous Carmarthen contralto, who has had the honour of singing before Royalty, and has achieved such unique success everywhere she has sung— whether at home or abroad It is extremely grati- fying-not only to the relatives of Miss Bona, but I to every native of Carmarthen—to find a local vocalist thus held up as one of those who are gradually asserting the right of tho English speak- ing race to a front rank amongst the musicians of the world. TEMPERANCE.—The weekly meeting of tho Total Abstinence Society was held on Sunday evening (April 19lh) at Union-street Chapel, and was, ros is ueually the case at this place of worship very crowded. The chair was taken by Miss Sourl(,ck, president of the local branch of the liiitisii Womens. Tempcrancc Association, nowIy f rrned in the town, and one ia which Lady Henry Somerset tskes such an action part. Slits Smirlock was supported in the chair by Mrs Nathaniel Thomas and Miss Gibbon, Llan- gunnor-road, all of whom wors the white ribbon," a symbol of membership of the associ- ation. The meeting was opened by Mr G. T Jones, Cwmoernant, offering prayer, and two temperance hymns tung and conducted by the pastor (Rev D S Davies). Miss Scurlock, in her opening address, referred to the British Women's Temperance Association, which was 20 years old, and gave eome interesting information of its doings. Afterwards, Miss Margaretta Williams, Chanel House, Union-street, gave a capital recita- tion, entitled, Bywyd y Meddwyn," and was followed ,,v a well-written pjvper by flIrs i>fttnaniel Thomas. *Mr Rees, Pontarda!si-?, then sang in his usual homely style, "Calfaria," the audience taking up the chorus with spirit. The next speaker was Mr Griffiths, of i'revecca College (^vho officiated at Water-»t:eet Chapel throughout Sunday). Mr Griffiths' name is a household word amongst the temperance advocates of the town, and is very popular, as a preacher. Mr Griffiths spoke for 25 minutes, and was attentively listoned to. After a fi.w remarks by the Rey I) S Davies, tha meeting was brought to a close by prayer.—The next meeting will bo htld at Lammas-etr. et Chnpcl schoolroom, when it is hoped the temperance friends there will follow the fo jtsteps of thoir co- icligioui-ts at Union-st reef, Chapel by providing a bood programme.—The weekly meeting was held on Sunday evening last at Lammas street Chapel Schoolroom, aDd was but thinly attended, and no musical programme was provided by the temperance friends of the chapel. The chair was taken by Mr Roberts, Golden Anchor, who also had to conduct the devotional exercises. After a few remarks by the Chairman, the Rev E Ungood Thomas, Tabernacle Chapel, delivered an excellent address, and was followed by tl:c Rev Mr Evans. l,la!, wrlyd I who remarked th it no minister of the Gospel ought to bo otherwise than a total abstainer. Owing to the lateness of the hour. Mr Jones, Ll.jnfyt.ydd, fi,iled to D S Davies then clos d the meeting by praver.-I he next meeting will he held at the Salvation Army Barracks, when a very init.c,i iiut committee meetiug will be held.

He says that the time is near at hand when rates and taxes will be paid by means of such profit3, as agriculturists cannot cope much longer with the depression. Agriculturists, cheer up Caraelog, for he al-o prophesy's that all the big guns of Statesmen must soon give a good reduction or the working class will be bound to wOlk at a starving wage. A young agriculturist from the district has believed every word of it, for he says he would hate deserted hi* sweetheart ere long but for her sterling value. Her prefers Miss Wait Birlecom but for this. Three cheers, lads, to the mercenary-hunter, but perhaps he thinks he can value sterling better than merits; at least, he will then have the advantage of knowing what he marries lut if the gold takes the wing, then he will be a widower. --0- A certain young servant giil has mado the following terms with her lover: That she will boil him an egg, ready to welcome hi" weekly visits.
