r PONTYPIUDD CHAM BE II OF TRADE. The annual meeting cf the above Chamber of Trade was held on Thursday at the Colliers' Anus Hotel, Pontypnud, under the ipresi- dcuey of Mr R. A. Lewis. Otllei-s present were the vice-president (Mr R. L. Phillips), M: Esrs A. O. Evans, John Lewis, T. Rowlands Mr Coombss, together with the secretary, Mr George Marcbant, and the treasurer, Mr R. Griffiths. TRAIN SERVICE. A letter was read from the Great Western Railway Company in respect to a resolution parsed Ly the Clirunber on the subject of the train service between Newport and Ponty- pridd. The Chamber desired that the trains service be so arranged that trains running from Newport, to Pontypridd be altered to fit i 1 with the service running from Senghenydd tt' Caerphilly. The secretary of the Great Western Company (Mr J. L. Wilkinson) ad- vised the Chamber that inasmuch as the pre- sent service on the Great Western Railwaj line was so arranged as to form the most con vient connection possible with the trains at, Newport and Pontypridd, lie would suggest that the branch to Senghenydd being a. short one. the best course for the Chamber to adopt would be to approach the Ilhymney Company with a, request that they would alter the ser- vice upon it, as to make it more effectually fit in with that now running between Newport and Pontypridd. The secretary of the Cham, her was instructed to approach the Rhymney Railway Company on the matter to this effect ELECTION OF OFFICERS. The following (ncmbers iwcre elected as officers for the ensuing year: President, Mr R. L. Phillips; vice-president, Mr J. Spraguc; secretary, Mr George Marchant (re-elected); treasurer, Mr R. A. Lewis. The best thanks o" the Chamber were accorded to the retir- ing officers, and several of the members _"poke in eulogistic terms as to the yeoman service they had rendered during their term of office. The newly-elected president, Mr R. L. Phil- lips, in taking his seat, thanked the Chamber for the honour they had conferred upon him and assured them that for the ensuing year would serve them to the best of his ability, and do very thing in his power for the welfare of Pontypridd and the surrounding districts. (Hear, hear). Reference was also made in the absence of the newly-elected vice-president, Mr Sprague, io the energetic and faithful manner in which he had served the Chamber. Ho had undoubtedly done o. great deal of good in bringing before them matters of interest in respect to the trade and position of the district. Mr R. A. Lewis said he could speak with authority of Mr Ma reliant's services as secretary, and to his readiness in doing every- thing io further the interests of the Chamber. AWKWARD STILES. On the agenda appenred a motion in the name of Mr Porcher.. "That the Urban Dis- trict Council be asked to repair the footpath and place swing-gates instead of the awkward stiles on the path from Graig Halva past Hendro Prosser to Ffynon Rhyngyll. In the absence of Mr Porcbor. the motion was moved by Mr R. Griffiths, and adopted. INTERCHANGE OF TICKETS. Notice of motion was given by Mr Richards: "Tliat the Taff Vale Railway Company be approached with a view of hiving an inter- change of season tickets as well as ordinary between tie Barry and the Taff Vale Railway lines. Mr A. 0. Evans also gave notice of motion that the Taff Vale Railway and Barry Com- panies be also asked to adopt the 1,000 mile system of travelling. FIRST ANNUAL DINNER. Shortly after the termination of the proceed, ings at the annual moeting the members and f number of their friends sat down to an ex- cellent dinner prepared on a most elaborate scalc by the popular host of the Colliers' Arms, Mf R. L. Phillips. Amongst those present were Messrs R. A. Lewis, Watkin Williams, Joseph Sprague, A .0. Evans, J. Coombes, R. Griffiths, J. Thomas. John Lewis, Firbank King, E. Ti-oharne, J. W. John, Arthur Sca'uon, Morgan John, George Marchant, Dd. Griffiths. Jenkin Phillips, Thomas Rowlands, and. John Snape. After the removal of the cloth, an excellent programme was proceeded with. Mr John Snape proposed the toast of "The Forces, Spiritual and Temporal." He be heved the clergy of all denominations in Pcntyjwield did their duty, and were vejry active in doing good. As to the temporal forces, he thought Pontypridd was well pro- tected, and that all would do their duty. The only fear about the spiritual forces was that they would get too high. (Laughter). The company were then favoured with a "'on by Mr George Marchant, accompanied by M.* Jenkin Phillips. Mr A. O. Evans, in responding, said he thought they would all agree that the spiritual forces were doing all in their power to Chris- foTces of England had gone the spiritual forces ti anise the nation. Whercvqr the temporal had followed, and were quite as much in evi- dence. Referring to tho temporal forces he said the British Army had considerable prac- tice in the many little wars that were taking place in keeping th'cm up to o. state of perfec- tion. He had heard the Brigadier District General say a few nights ago that- an officer had mentioned that in the Franco-Turkish War, for every 70 or 80 rifles fired only one man was hit, but at the last battle, that of Omdurman, for every shot fired a man and a half was hit. (Laughter). This showed that g»eater precision had been auaitud in volley firing. Mr -Tame- Coombes proposed, "The Cham- I-, of Trade." and referred to the object of the Chamber and the good work dene by it iL, the past. In his opinion it was a. source of grief that a large number connected with the trade in Pontypridd were not n. embers. He was pleased to think that tli-j was no de- lurniiuitionalifTO in the Chamt:r>r. They didn't i g) ill' to support their own view- hut to brr.-tit, tlis town and neighbourhood at large, niR; they had tried to. support the District Ccusiril an,1 other [oral bodies in everything | they believed to be lor the welfare of the dis- i-ici. Mr R. L. Phillips then gavo a song, ft.tiowed by a recitation, given by Mr Firbank j King. Mr R. L. Phillips, in rcspenJing, said I that it was a great pity, and a loss to the (own thai many of the tradesmen didn't join the Chamber of Pontypridd, tho most import- ant. and most central own in the Valleys. The j wm-nnding districts, Hopkinstown, the Graig, and Tialhvn, ought to join and have a strong centra! chamber at I'onty- ridd, such as they had Card ill".

They | paid t.hcii' sul>~vf ipHur.s, .m-l 11: -.jrsaH w v. ere ieU i.u do he work, huri iy h WHS ia sleeping members that they wanted. A great many people would tell them that the Polity- pridd Chamber of Trade were doing nothing. He would disprove that. During the pasc yca r tua 11* lato president had g-t- ting a resolution passed at tlie meeting of the Federated Chambers at Barry in favour of gritting the County Offices erected in 'the County, and they had passed resolutions and forwarded them to the Council with the object of getting the Council Offices at Pontypridd, and they were going to do their utmost to "'ct the County Offices at Pontypridd. (Hca.r, hear). Air Pidliips gave a resun a of the I good work done by the Chamber during the year. Mr Arthur Seaton, in responding, endorsed ti remarks made by Mr Phillip: Mr R. Griffiths gave a sentimental song. Mr Sprague proposed "Our Local Governing Bodies," Referring to the Chamber he said that whenever they passed resolutions or at- tended as a deputation, they were received with a great amount of courtesy by the local bodies. The District Council was a hard- worked body, and the Councillors put in a large amount of time for more kicks, some- times, linn pay. (Laughter). The members of that body had a great desire to do every thing they possibly could to further the inter- ests of the community at large. The members might differ in the course thsy adopted, but they had only one aim—that of making Pont- ypridd a greater Pontypridd than they had found it. He trusted iii(, Local Governing Bodies would have the same view in future in endeavouring to get the Cooumy Offices erected in the town. If they failed they should fall back iipoii ilic- old scheme, and go in for incorporation. With regard to Chambers of Trade there was no doubt that they were capablo of very great sendee in moulding pub- lic opinion before it came in front, of the Local Governing Body in the Sh2pr- of the District Cc-uncd. Referring to educational motters, he saiel he was afraid that sufficient care was not taken in grounding children in the "three R.'s" before going to higher subjects. He was speaking what he knew to be an absolute fact. lie had known children leaving school who were unable to spell correctly or tot up a simple sum. Re did not think they were so wel1. grounded as they used to be. Evcry child should be able to spell ordinary words correctly, do addition, subs tract ion, long divi- sion, and prove, his figures. He did not object to higher education, but he doubted the ad- visability of teaching the children a lot of subjects no good to them until they were grounded in the "three R's" He hoped this matter would be well ventilated and enquired into. Mr G. Marchant obliged with another song. 61 Councillor Watkin Williams, in responeling, said that after the kind references made by Mr Sprague, he felt proud of being a. Council- lor. The work of the District Council was not by any means small. They had a good deal to do, especially i-ii scch an old district as Pontypridd. Since the Local Board and new District Councils had been in existence, they had to keep pace with the times, and much had to be carried out through the district, and money had been spent as freely as they were able to afford. Some people had said that they were spending too rapidly. He didn't think they were considering the sanitary improve, ments which had been effected. The death- rate at Pontypridd was lower than other dis- tricts for miles around. In his opinion the health of the people should be considered re- gardless of cost. He hoped the time would soon COlll2 when District Councils would have greater powers, then they would be able to do greater and more beneficial work. Mr J. W. John, member of the Pontypridd School Board, also responded. It was news to him what Mr Sprague had mentioned that night, and he certainly would promise him he would see into the matter. He did not be- lieve in cheap things at any price. The teach- ers under the Pontypridd School Board were equal to any town in South Wales. Last year every child had earned the full grant through- out the district. That, in his opinion, spoke well for the teachers. The toast of ''The Press" was proposed by Mr Rhys Griffiths in a. most eloquent manner. The members of the Press present responded. Songs were afterwards given by Mr John Lewis, Mr Jake Rowland, and a humorous recitation by Mr J. W. John. Mr G. Marchant, in proposing the health of the "Host and Hostess," Mr and Mrs Phillips said they had behaved most. handsomely, and he only wished that there were more present t,. partake of their hospitality. He trusted that the gathering would stimulate the Cham- ber to do more in the future than it had in th-j past, and that the attendance at the meet- ings would improve, and the work of the Chamber become more widely known. Mr R. L. Phillips, on his own and his wife's behalf. responded to the toast. After being further treated to a number of songs, a most pleasant and thoroughly enjoyed function was brought to a close.
