[DAN uLiei/>KXH T. D. ISAAC. BARN FFRANCWR AM Y CYMRY. Yehydig ddyddiau yn ol bu M. Paul Barbier athraw ffrancaeg yn Ngholeg Caerdydd, yn darlithio ger bron y Regent Street Polytechnic Llundain. Ei destyn oedd "Cymru a'r Cymry fel eu gwelir trwy wydrau Ffrengig." Sylw- odd y darlithydd mai'r Gymraeg o hyd, er gwaetlaaf amgylchiadau cymdeithasol a pholi- ticaidd anfFafriol, oedd iaith aelwyd, chwareu. le, a chrefydd-dai Cymru. Y siroedd mwyaf Cymreig oedd y siroedd y ceid ynddynt leiaf o droseddau ac o dyngu anudon, ac hefyd y bywyd cymdeithasol puraf. Yr oedd y Cymro yn fab mwy ufydd, yn dad mwy cariadus, ae yn briod ffyddlonach na'r Gwyddel. Yr oedd parch i rieni a henaint yn rhan o grefydd y Cymro, tra yr oedd y teimlad hwn yn gwan- ychu'n ddirfawr yn Lloegr ac wedi ei golli bron yn llwyr yn America. Trwy y Brifysgol tyfai y Gymraeg a gweithiai ei ffordd i ysgol- ion a cholegau y genedl—fe'i cydnabyddid yn gangen bwysig i gyrhaedd gradd y Brifysgol. Os y Ffrancaeg oedd iaith dynion, y Ger- manaeg yn iaith y milwyr, yr Hispaenaeg yn iaith seintiau, yr Eidalaeg yn iaith rhianod, y Saesneg yn iaith adar-yna.'n aicr y Gymraeg oedd iaith angylion. Rhyfedd yw'r ffaith hon —er fod y Gymraeg yn cael ei hedmygu gan y rhai a'i deallant, ac yn cael ei gwawdio gan anwybodusion, nad oedd ei phrydferthweh yn cael ei hamlygu'n fwy a'i grym yn cael ei werthfawrogi. Yn ei chyfluniad a'i mynegiant ymJebygai lawer i'r Hebraeg; ac yr oedd cyffelybrwyd3 hefyd rhwng y Cymry ar He- breaid. Hoflfai'r ddwy genedl fywyd bugeil- 10I, a chaffent fwynhad wrth amaethu. Natnr hawdd ei chyffroi oedd eiddo'r Cymro, a gwrthnalws (iddo ydoedd yr anghyfartalwch cymdeithasol a pholiticaidd a ffynai yn ei wlad.
IAITH A GWAITH. Mewn sylwadau yn ddiweddar ar siarad ac I areithio yn gyhoeddus, datganai y "Sun" o Nlew York mai ychydig o tddylanwad sydd ganddynt y dyddiau hyn ar wahan i waith ymarfeml. Bu amser pan oedd siarad ac ymhyawdlu yn cario dylanwad mawr ar y gwr- andawyr, ond gyda chynydd gwybodaeth a'r arfer o ddarllen, ymddengys fod rheitheg yn colli tir yn gyflym. Ymddengys, hefyd, fod llafurio a llefaru yn ddau waith tra gwahanol;. ac o osodiad natur" hefyd, y rhaid iddi fod y nail! beth neu y llall. Fel rheol gyfiredin, y tawelog yw y gweithiwr, a cheir y siaradus neu y llefarus yn fynych yn gadael gweithio yn gyfangwbl er mwyn ymroi yn hollol i dori geiriau. Tawelog, fel rheol, hefyd, yw y mfeddylwyr yaf; a sylwodd Shakespeare fod "Natur yn gwneyd gwr dysg yn dawgar." "Doeth pob tawgar" hefyd, ebe yr hen ddi- areb Gymreig. Camgymeriad yw goeod cymaint bri ar ddawn siarad yn unig, gan nad yw yn gysyllt- ifdif, o angenrheidrwydd" a galluoedd ymar- ferol; eto, yn rhy fynych, dewisir y llefarwr hwylus droa ben dwsin o ddynion galluocach a sylweddolach. Disodlir y gweinidog da gan T siaradwr rhugl, ac mor fynych yr aberthir yshrydolrwydd a moesoldeb ar allor hyawdl- edd! Nid oes eisieu coffau fod dawn siarad yn rhy ami yn hollol amddifad o ras; a dylij fel rheol, ei drwgdyhio yn hytrach Wi derbvu fel rhodd oddi uchod. Yr ydym ni, y Cymry, yn rhy chwanog i redeg ar ol "torwr geiriau," gan dybio y rhaid ei fod yn anfonedig oddiwrth Dduw; a chryn syndod yw fod yr Ysgrythyr a Dadguddiad yn cyfrif cyn lleied o lafur y tafod! Yr oedd Aron yn llawer gwell siaradwr na'i frawd Mosesi, eto i Moses y rhoddwyd y flaenoriaeth. Yr oedd Apollos, hefyd, yn llawer rhuglach geiriwr na Paxil. "Aelod bychan yw y tafod," ebe lago, "as yn ffrostio pethau mawrion;" a ffrostio y mae, heblaw fod cryn waith yn dylyn y llefaro. Beth yw hyawdledd yn ami oddigerth "ffrostiaeth" ddisylwedd P Podd bynag am hyny, dylai dawn siarad, bob amser, is-wasanaethu rhinwedd a moes. oblegyd yn- ddc, ei him ac wrtho ei hun nid yw llafur y tafod ond gwagedd.
PONTYPRIDD CRICKET I CLUB. ANNUAL MEETING. On Friday evening, ai the Maltsters' Arms Hotel, the annual general meeting of the Pontypridd Cricket Club was held, Mr Vazie Simons in the chair,, when there was a good attendance. The balance sheet, which was adopted, showed that the club had sustained a loss of £6 4s. 6d. upon the year's working, the total deficit being B32 15s. Od. The dona, lions from outside sources were £ 31 13s. Od., the members' subscriptions amounting to only £4 7s. 6d. The officers elected were:—secre- tary, Mr J. Parry Williams; assistant secretary Mr Oliver Morgan; treasurer, Mr J. T. Lefeaux; captain 1st XI, Mr Harold Barker; vice-captain, Mr T. L. Williams; captain 2nd XI, Mr J. James, Post Office; vice-captain, Mr J. Rogers; captain Thursday team, Mr Morgan Charles; vice-captain, Mr Edmund Leyshon; committee, Messrs Vazie Simons, W. H. Rees (County Schools), W. E. Summers, G 0. Evans, Aneurin Jones, C. Ivens, and W. M» Walters. Strong complaints were made that "JJIG amount received for members' sub- scriptions last season was ridiculously small, and it was decided to raise the annual sub- scriptiou to five shillings despite protests from a few members. Mr W. E. Summers referred t,, the excellent services rendered the club by Messrs V. Simons and W. Gage, tobacconist. Had it not been for their assistance they could not have struggled through the strike. A new and excellent pitch had been laid on Ehe Ynysangharad Ground at a cost of j630. and of that sum Mr Simon had himself given and collected :£27, and Mr Gage had given 95. In consideration of their admirable ser- vices he proposed that the two gentlemen named be elected life members of the club. Mr Edmund Leyshon seconded, and the resolu- tion was carried with acclamation. Mr Simons briefly thanked the club, and expressed a hope It would increase and prosper. A number of members from the Porth Club were present and it was explained fhat that club had decided to throw in its lot with Pontypridd, s) that there is every probability that a. strong club will now be established in Pontypridd. A vote of thanks to the retiring officers con- eluded the meeting.

Llwyfan Llafur (The Labour Platform). (BY DARONWY). Trwy ganiatad y Golygydd Cyffredinol a pherchenogion y "Wasg Rydd," yr hwn sydd mewn cylchrediad helaeth yn mhlith y glowyr a llafurwyr ereill, bwriadwn yn wythnosol gys- segru colofn neu ddwy, os bydd angen, er dadlen achosion llafur a chelfundebiaeth. Er gwneyd hyn yn effeithiol gwahoddir gohebiaetlieu yn Gymraeg neu Saesonaeg r unrhyw bwnc cysyllt- iedig a gwaith a gweithwyr. Er sicrhau ym- ddangosiad yn y rhifyn dilynol disgwylir i bob gohebiaeth fod mewn llaw ar ddydd Linn o bellaf. By permission of the General Editor and pro- prietors of the "Free Press," which is largely circulated among the industrial classes, it is in- tended to devote a column or two if necessary weekly to discuss labour questions and Trades Unionism in particular. In order to do this effectually we invite correspondence in Welsh or English upon any question relating to work and workmen. To secure insertion in the fol. lowing number, all correspondence should be in hand not later than Monday in each week. Now that the vast majority of the South Wales miners are members of the Federation of Great Britain it may be interesting to our readers to learn the principles and conditions under which the federated districts are governed. We therefore hereby insert a full text of the rules of proceedure for the conduct of the business of the Board of Conciliation established between the Federated Coal Owners and the Miners' Federation of Great Britain, to det-tin ie the rate of wages from the 1st January, 1899, to 1st January, 1901, within the following limits, namely: that during susk period the rate of wages shall not be below 30 per cent. above the rate of wages of 1888, nor more than 45 per cent. above the rate of wages of 1888. I.-That the title of the Board shall be "The Board of Conciliation for the Coal Tradt of the Federated Districts." 2.—The Board shall determine, from time t" time, the rate of wages as from January, 1899. Z.-T,e Board shall consist of an equal number of Coal Owners or Coal Owners' representatives elected by the federated Coal Owners, and miners or miners' representa- tives elected by the Miners' Federation of Great Britain-fourteen of each,, with a chair- man from outside, who shall have a casting vote. 4.—The present members of the Board are and shall be:—chairman, the right honourable Lord James of Hereford; coal owners or coal owners' representatives, Messrs Alfred Hewlett Walter L. Bourke, William Kellett, T. D. Grimke Drayton, F. J. Jones, J. J. Addy, A. C. Briggs, A. J. Holiday, Fitzherbert Wright, Walter Salmond, Arthur G. Barnes, Henry Dennis, W. Heath, and Captain Harri- son; miners or miners' representatives, Messrs B. Pickard, M.P., S. Woodsy M.P., William Parrott, Edward Cowey, Thos. Glover, W. E Harvey, Thos. Chambers, Enoch Edwards, Benjamin Dean,, Edward Hughea, J. C. Han- cock, Andrew Sharp, William Abrahams, M.P., and Robert Smellie, of whom Mr Alfred Hewlett shall be president, and Mr B. Pickard M.P., vice-president. Whenever a vacancy has arisen, from any cause, on the Board, except in the office of Chairman, such vacancy shall be filled up within one month of its occurrence by the body which appointed the member -whose seat has become vacant. In- timation of such apointment shall be at once sent to the secretaries. On the death, resig- nation, or removal of the first or any subsequent chairman, the Board shall endeavour to elect another chairman, and should they fail, will ask the speaker for the time being ef the House of Commons to nominate one. 5.—The meetings of the Board shall be held iu London, or such other- place as the Board shall from time to time determine. 6.—The constituents of the Board, i.e., ooaT owners or coal owners' representatives and miners or miners' representatives are, for brevity, herein referred to as "the parties." 7.—The parties shall each respectively elect a secretary to represent them in the tran- saction of the business of the Board, and each party shall give written notioe thereof to the < tary of the other party,, and both such ¡" cretaries shall remain in office until they shall resign or be withdrawn by the parties electing them. The secretaries shall attend all meetings of the Board, and are entitled to take part in discussion, but they shall have no power to move or second any resolution or to vote on any question before the Board. 8.—They shall jointly convene all meetings of the Board and take proper minutes of the Board and the proceedings thereof, which shall be transcribed in duplicate books, and each such book shall be signed by the Chair- man, president, or vice-president, or other person, as the case may be, who shall preside a the meeting at which such minutes are read and confirmed. One of such minute books shall be kept by each of the secretaries. The secretaries shall also conduct the correspon- dence for the respective parties and conjointly for the Board. 9.—The secretaries sbxlll, on the written application of either of the parties made by the chairman and secretary of either party for an alteration in the rate of wages, or an alteration of iTie rules, or for any of the objects mentioned in Clause 4, call a meeting of the Board within twenty-one days, at such time and place as may be agreed upon by the secretaries. The application for the meeting shall state clearly the object of the meeting. 10 The president, or in his absence, the w;tInt shall preside at all meetings a which the chairman is not present as herein provided. In the absence of both president and vice-president, a member of the Board shall be elected by the majority to preside at the meeting. The-president, or vice-president or lother person presiding, shall vote as a representative, but shall not have any casting vote. When the chairman is present he shall preside and have a casting vote. II.-All questions shall, in the first instance, b" submitted to and considered by the Board, ;t being the desire and intention of the parties to settle any difficulties and differences which may arise by Friendly conference if possible. r the parties on the Board cannot agree, then the meeting shall be adjourned for a period not exceeding twenty-one days. and the matter in dispute shall be further discussed by the constituents of the two parties, and thf chairman shall be summoned by the secretaries to the adjourned meeting, when the matter shall be ag-ain discussed, and in default of an agreement by the parties on the Board, the chairman shau give his casting vote on such matter at that meeting, which shall be final and binding. 12.-All questions submitted to the Board shall be stated in writing, and may be sup- ported by such verbal, documentary, or other evidence anå explanation as the parties may desire;, subject to the approval of the Board. 13.—All votes shall be taken at meetings of the Board by show of hands. When at any meeting of the Board the parties entitled to vote are unequal in number, all shall have the right of fully entering into the discussion of any matter brought before them; but only an equal number of each shall vote. The withdrawal of the members of whichever body may be in excess to be-by lot, unless otherwise arranged. 14.—Each party shall pay and defray the expenses of its own representatives and secre- tnrv bnt. the. costs and exDenses of the chair- -J, man, stationery, books, printing, hire of rooms for meeting, shall be borne by the cl respective parties in equal shares. THOS. RATCLIFFE ELLIS, THOMAS ASHTON, Joint secretaries of the Board. January, 1899. As a re&ult of several meetings of the above the following resolution was unanimously adopted at a meeting held at Westminster Palace Hotel, on February the 10th, 1899. I.-That the present rate of wages be in- creased as from the first niaking-up day in April, 1899, by 5 per cent, on the standard, and as from the first making-up day in October, 1899, by a further 2| per cent. on the standard. 2.—That the before-mentioned advances apply to underground labour only. The question of an advance to surface hands was considered, but no conclusion arrived at. It will be borne in mind that previous to the fore-going terms the miners in most of the federated districts were in receipt of 32i per cent, above the standard rates of 1888, so that by next October they will have secured by conciliation the 40 per cent which they failed to obtain by a 17 weeks strike. Al- though they then established the principle of a minimum wage.
Grand Performances at Peatre. On Thursday and Saturday evenings, at the Drill Hall, Pentre, two grand performances of the famous cantatta entitled "The Burning Ship" were given by Hebron Welsh Baptist Choir, Ton, under the able conductorship of Mi- D. J. Price, to crowded audiences. The chairman on Thursday evening was Mr J. Williams, Ton (Superintendent Prudential Assurance Co.), and on Saturday evening, Dr. Edward Hughes,, Ton. The choir was ably assisted by the following artistes viz. sopranos, Mrs Cordelia Rets, Hopkinstown, Pontypridd, Miss Sarah James, 'Cwmpark, and Miss Mary Jenkins, Ton; contralto, Miss S. Davies, Ton; tenor, Mr J. Thomas (Bos-y-de), a member of the Rhondda Royal Glee Society; bass, Mr Ben Devonald, Ton; and violinist, Miss Deborah Ttees, Hopkinstown, Pontypridd. The first part of the programme included a pianoforte duet by Messrs D. Lloyd and T. J Price, rendered in a very masterly manner. Miss Sarah James gave the "Star of Bethle- hem," followed by a solo by Mr J. Thomas (Eos-y-de), Ton, whose rendering was loudly applauded. Miss Deborah Rees, Hopkinptown Pontypridd, favoured the. audience with a violin solo "Hungarian Dance," which was very ably executed. This young lady has been successful in obtaining four scholarships at the South Wales and Monmouthshire School of Music, Cardiff, for violin and pianoforte play- ing. Mr Ben Devonald, Ton, sang "The Skipper" in an excellent manner, followed by Mrs Cordelia Edwards Rees, Hopkinstown, who sang "Merry Sunshine," and for an encore magnificently rendered "Clychau Aberdovey. which was well received. A duett by Messrs J. Thomas (Eos-y-de) and Mr Ben Devonald both of fwhom appeared in the best of form, terminated the first portion of the proceed- ings. The second part, which was entirely devoted to the cantatta, was gone through without a hitch from beginning to end. The singing surpassed anything heard in this district before, and reflected the greatest credit upon the choir and its conductor. The costumes and the scenery presented a most attractive appearance. The accompanists were Messrs D. TIoyd, Tonypandy, and T. J. Price, Ton, who presided with their usual efficiency. The proceeds were devoted to the Band of Hope Choir of the above chapel.
