LLAKGENNECH. A NEW JUSTICE OF THE PEACE.— Alderman Joseph, J.P., of Llangennech, is the only Liberal Nonconformist among the new batch of magistrates for Carmarthenshire. No one is more respected than he in Llan- gennech, in which place he was born in 1835, where his forefathers lived and diffused deeds of love and charity. Mr Joseph carries on a flourishing milling business in Llacellv, and has occupied for the last 30 years the position of registrar of births, I marriages, and deaths for the Loughor district. The son of a Congregational minister, he became a member of Bethesda r, n 1 0 Congregational Church, Llangennech, when 17 years of age, and a deacon at 22, and he has served as a teacher in the Sunday school from that time to the present except for the period when he acted as superintendent of the school. It is interesting to note that among those who attended his class was the Rev Morlais Jones, of Lewisham, London, whojias since reached great eminence in the Congregational pulpit. In Llangennech, Mr Joseph is almost indispensable in all public movements. He is a sound total abstamer, and has espoused the cause of temperance on everv nnssihJe ocmsnnn hen the Parish Council came into operation, Alderman Joseph was made its chairman, which post lie has occupied ever since. But his services went bevond parochial limits, for in 1889, when the County Council was first formed, Mr Joseph was made an alderman for six years, and in 1895 he was re-elected for the same period. Mr Joseph is an ardent lover of Wales and the Welsh, and when the Cymmrodorion Society was formed in Llanelly in 1892 he became one of its first members, and he occupied the presidency of that society for the session 1896-97.
