Crimean Veterans Associations. CONCERTS ATTENDED BY THE RHONDDA FAOH MALE VOICE CHOIR. At the annual concerts held on Sunday at the People's Palace, Bristol, in aid of the Crimean and Indian Mutiny veterans, the Rhondda Fach Male Voice Choir, Ynyshir (all prize soloists), were present and gave a number of vocal con- tnvbutions, under the able conductorship of their leader, Mr Joseph Jenkins. The mem- bers of the choir on hearing that the old veter- ans' funds were greatly diminished, and that their institution would shortly be closed up for want of money, gave their services gratis and paid their own expenses as a small recognition of the great obligation they were under, espe- cially to Bristolians, for the help the Welsh miners received from that city during the dis- pute in the coal trade last year.
