Mr. J. Lloyd Morgan in Parliament. Mr Lloyd Morgan is anxious to ameliorate the position of rural and other postmen. whose conditions of service disqualify them for any award under the Superannuation Acts. To that end hfe proposes to ask Mr Austen Chamberlain to consider the question of introducing legislation with the object of providing some pension or gratuity for them. On Thursday Mr Lloyd Morgan will ask Mr Balfour whether he intends to introduce a Bill to repeal Section 12 of the Municipal Corporations Act, 1882, which disqualifies ministers of religion from being members of a municipal corporation, and so do away with the .anomaly of allowing min sters to be members of County Councils and not of Borough Councils. Incidentally it, may be pointed out that this appears to be necessary in order to enable ministers! to become mem- bers of the new local education authority of boroughs with. a population of over 10,000.
The Boro' Member in Parliament. Mr Alfred Da vies' remarks on tIDe, Third Reading of the Appropriation Bill of eight millions to be used as free grants and loans to Boers and Loyalists who have suffered during the war. Mr Davies had received intelligence from a well-known South African that the money was not being wisely spent. He grasped his opportunity to make a few remarks after mid-night when the motion for the third reading of the Bill was under discussion, besides putting a question on the subject to thei Colonial Secretary. The second reading of the Bill was carried. Mr Alfred Davifes (Carmarthen Boroughs) said he bad just, a, word to say upon this bill. He supported the second reading of this measure, but since then he had recis' ved re- liable intelligence to the, effect that the throe millions which had been voted for the Boers as fretei grants was being wasted. Money had been given to many Boer farmers some weeks ago, and he was informed that they werte actually in a, worse condition now than they were before. Cattle had been given to them wliioh were diseased, and in conse- quence1 many of them had died. He had also been assured by the sarnie authority that nothing had been done to re-build the many farm houses which had been burwed during the war, and altogether he was told that, not only was the. money being wasted, but the Boers were. being pauperised. He wished to ask whether the Colonial Secretary flEJt, satis- fied that the free grant of three millions was "eing admuiisterled for the benefit of the Boers in the best, possible way, and he also wanted to know, if the Right, hon. gentleman was not, satisfied, whfether he was going to take any action in the matter. Mr Alfred Davies. asked the' Postmaster- General, as representing the Colonial Secre- tary, if he would lay upon the table or inform the House of the ( intents of the written protest de-livened by the Boer generals to Lord Kitchener, at. the time the articles of peace were signed. Mr Austen Chamberlain, in reply, referred the hon. member to the papers' alneady issued.

Llandilo Urban District Council The monthly meeting of this Council wa.s held on Tuesday evening, when those present, were air W. Griffiths (in the. chair), Messrs T. H Powell, W Jones, H G Philijpps, Evan J one. R. Griffiths, Evan Thomas, T. C. Thcmas. together with the Clerk (Mr R. Shinlcv Lewis).
THE CRUG. A discussion took place as to placing of swing gates rattier than shutter gates on the roadway through the Crug over wffich there i sa right, of way. Est.imates were placed before the Council, but the Clork held that before the, old gates were taken away or the new ones put instead, permission must be ob tained from the owners.—Mr Evan Thomas thought that the owners had nothr to do with them. Gates that anybody could jump over in such a case did not, belong to the owners.—A Member That is a. new dictum in law.—The minutes of the last meeting in- structed Mr Jenkyn Jones, Mr Evan Thomas and the Surveyor, to see the owner's and to arrange with them.—Mr H. G. Philipps said one o:f the committee now said that the owners had nothing to do with it.—Mr Evan Jones wanted to meet as a body, and not to be conquered by a clique.—Mr W. Jones wanted to know why iey should make a present of new galt,c.s t.o' the. owners.—On the met on of Mr H. G. Philipps seconded by Mr Powell, it was rlcsolved that the Clerk should write to the owners, to know if they •h on Id put up the gates, there.—Mr W. Jones said: To probect their property. Even if they allowed them, it, was not certain they would put them. Mr W. Jones would like to have gates (nut, on his property.—Mr Evan Jones thought he had nothing to complain of.
THE STREETS. Mr Evan Jones next complained about the laying of the stones on the streets.—Mr Evan Thomas: Where are we now?—Mr W. Jones asked if it was in order now.—Chairman: No.—Members Order! Orde!-Mr Evan Thcmas said they had sooiled a good sermon —to which Mr Jones retorted that. they were a brewery clique.
NO MASONS WILL APPLY. For the second time no tender m reply to applications had beien received for putting Latimer road is a. proper state of repair.— Mr W. Joees jsaid he would undetrake to get a person to tender by that day fortnight. In reply to Mr Powell, Mr W. Jones said the reason why they got no tenders was that the masons were .busy.—Mr Philipps, Mr T. C. Thomas, and Mr Evan Jones had each some- thing to say about loose flags, but amidst some laughter the Chairman would not let them air their grievances, if such they were.
MARKET STREET. Mr Edwin Jonies who was in attendance on the oard, had written to complain of the .state of the drainage, in Market street.—Mr Powell said he had seen thie. state of things and he corroborated Mr Jones as to the very bad state the street, wa,s in.—Thie. Surveyor said that specifications had been prepared.. —Mr Powell prqpiosed, and Mr W. Jones socondkxl that a.s the street was in such a disgraceful state that the Surveyor should see to a remedy being applied at once.—The Surveyor said it occurred again through the malSons being busy.—Mr Powell could not understand. He did not mean to reflect, on the Surveyor, but if he, (Mr Powell) wanted a mason, he would undertake to get one.
THE G.W.R. CO. AND THE COUNCIL The G.W.R. Co. replying to the Clerk's letter with regard to the overflow of water at the bottom of Alan, road, staffed that the trouble was caused by the sharp fall in the road, and that in consequence an additional, gulley was required.—The Surveyor said that would remedy the evil.—Mr T." C. Thomas thoujghit there was something radically wrong in the gulleys there.—It was agreed that the drains committee should see to the gulleys along with the Surveyor.-Mr Evan Jones protested.
PRESIDENT ELECT. It was decided that Mr Morgan Richardson should be president elect for 1904.
ELECTRIC LIGHT-TOO GREAT A DEMAND. The, Clerk said he had had considerable correspondence with the contractor with re- gard to the Electric Light, but he only thought it, necessary to read two of them. In onle, Mr Bertram Thomas stated that a plant only for 1000 eight candle power lights had been obtained, but now they were work- ing up to 1900, and that the Council must not for the present accede to any more appli cations for the light. He would be glad to have his account settled. He had written several times, and it, was not right that the payment should be delayed as their estimate was so close. The demand was now up to 120 amperes for the light, and only 130 could be supplied. It was essential new plant should be obtained, and for the same lie sub- mitted tenders one for zC985, and another for XI,100.-The Clerk said he had also seen Mr B. Thomas, with regard to the subject.— The Chairman: Can we (pay him any sum until wte .get Mr Howells. the. engineer, here. —The Clerk said it was extras Mr Thomas was applying.—Mr T. C. Thomas asked if the accounts were checked ?-The Clerk said that some of them had, and there was onlv a difference of 8s, which could be settled again.—In answer to the Chariman, the Clerk said they had only £200. of the first loan in hand. He had written to the L.G.B with regard to the additional loan, and he had papers to fill up before they would consider it. They had now 52 consumers, and he feared that the £ 500 addition he had asked for would not be sufficient, and that they should borrow at Jeast £ 700.—Mr T. C. Thomas That is in addition to the new plan.t.-Inanswer' to Mr W. Jones, the Clerk said there was L270 due to Mr Thomas on his original contract., and t400 clue to him for extras.—It was agreed to give him a. I cheque for C200 on account of tlile extras.— The Clerk asked it they intended to go in for additional plant.—Chairman: We will not touch it now.—Mr T. C. Thomas ex- pressed a desire that Mr Howells should meet the Council to advise them, as he had said he thought the present plant would be insufficient. He thought there was some- thing wrong.—In answer to Mr Griffiths, the Clerk said he had under-estimated the re- venue they would have for the half year. I He had put it at C200, but it would be nearer £ 250.—Chat run an We save in the town nearly £100 by the lamps.—Mr T. C. Thomas: Our working expenses are £ 275.— The Clerk said the repayment of the lo'an W:1? £ 240.—Mr T. C. Thoms.s held that the revenue would not. be sufficient to pay thei interest. iand the working expenses. He said Mr Howells had distinctly told tVrrn it would be a paying concern, but on the present •-hewing it would not.—Clerk: Never will.- Cbnirman You cannot say yet.—Mr Evan Thomas also thought the remarks were pre- mature.—Mr Powell thought the suggestion of Mr T. C. Thomas was a wise one to ask Mr Howells to mect, them, and it, was agrieed to do so.—Mr Evan Jones objected. (Cries ,j of Order).—Mr Evau Joaes retlied that hiel was not going to be ordered. It was a clique that was controlling everything, and putting the ratepaylers to expense!—Mr T. C. Thomas explained that his idea, of getting Mr Howell present was that it. would be more business- like to go in for proper nlant, instead of working with the present plant at a loss. They would only have to interest on the plant. The cables they had would do all the -amc.-A-lr Rees Griffiths pointed out that on Sundays they worked tine light from accumulators. Some of the members did not think that would do the accumulators good, as it would tend to wear them out us- necessarily. —The Clerk sai dif they had to borrow more money it would be absurd to go on getting it by dribblets.-It was agreed to leave the question of the extra plant until Mr Howells had been consul tied.
THE TOWN DRAIN. Mr Ben Richards complained that he had lost two cows through their drinking from an unprotected sewer belonging to the Coun cil that run through a, field in his possession. Mr H. Philipps How long have the drains boirn in that state?—Mr Evan Jones: Before you and I were born (la,ughter).-It. was agreed that, the drains committee should meet Mr Richards to stee what could be done. —————————————

The Missing Kays. A WARNNG TO PUBLICANS. The missing Rays returned to Mill street! on Wednesday night after flying the town from a warrant. A special Borough Police C urt was held at Carmarthen on Thursday, before the Mayor (Mr Walter Spurrell), and Mr D. Williams. Daniel Ray, of Mill street, was charged with being drunk and disorderly. P.C. Phillips said that at 10 p.m., on the 8th November, he saw the defendant. Daniel Ray, in Mill street, cursing and swearing, and calling on the Vaughan's to come out and fight him. When asked to go, he wlent into the passage, and continued to be dis- orderly there, until he was pulled into his room. Defendant said that he had a wife and four children. The Mayor: That is all the, more reason why you should be steady. Sup4-. Smith said that there were several previous convictions. Defendant was a good workman, and could do very well, if he were sober. The Mayor said that defendant would be fined 10s and eootsl. There was a new Act coming into force in January; and if defen- dant were, conviotied again before September the magistrates would ha.ve to give notice to the police to wain the publicans not to supply him with drink. William Ray was similarly charged. P.C. David Jones gave similar evidence of defendant's conduct on the same occasion. He was fighting with the Vaughans. The Mayor: There is a. feud hetwteen the families. Supt. Smith: There is; very bad feeling between thean. Supt. Smith said there, were two previous convictions in this case. De- fendants were quiet, well behaved men whf n sober. Defendant was fined 10s and costs. The alternative was fourteen days in each case.
Gave His Case Away. I would say more," wrote a Member of the House of Commons a he sat in the library there penning a letter to a friend. but that tall rsBcal the Member for Bribeborougb, is looking over my shoulder and reading everv word of this." Where- upon the tall legislator shouted excitedly. It's false—I haven't This i- giving, away one's case with a vengeance; yet hardly more so -han the people who claim for a particular medicine that it will cure certain ail- ments if the persons affiicted with them be curable -at all, but which fail to do so, the sufferers finally obtaining relief from another and different medicine. 1 his is of frequent occurrence, and of many such cases here is one. that of Mrs Edward Morris, of the,, Royal Oak," Llangollen, Denbigh- shire, who writes thus on the 11th July, 11)02 There are times when I would rather be short o.t food than without a bottle of Mother Seigel s Curative Syrup in the house. That medicine has been a veritable blessing to me for nearly i;even years. I suffered from a very bad form of indifes- tion, for which I took a certain widely-advertised pill; but it afforded me no relief A*, nil Tho wo.ft: -LaV tJAI.U and fulness at the chest after eating seemed to weigh me down, while if a knife had been inserted between my shoulder-blades I don't think I could have suffered more. The pain came on about half an hour after meals, and as it increased in severity its effect upon my general health was very bad. My sleep was much broken at night, and in the morning I had usually such a bad taste in the mouth that it quite destroyed any appetite I might have had for breakfast. feoon I began to dread mealtimes, for I knew too well what punishment they meant for me, and I went about my house- work like one half-dead, thin, pale, and looking miserable. Dizziness and a stuffed, bloated feeling, were other symptoms I am not likely soon to for- get. At times everything seemed to swim around me, while my eyesight would become quite blurred. Then that bloated or swollen teeling it was Bf pronounced at times that it was quite a relief to loosen my clothes. For three months I Buffered like thit-, and I should have broken down entirely hot for Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup. That went directly to the root of the ill. and by the time I had taken the first bottle I was much better and stronger. If ever there was a sign of the old symptoms, Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup naer fails me-hence my pleasure in giving this testi- monial for publication. It is imposaible to praise it too highly."
Drunk and Disorderly at Queen- street. A special Borough Police Court was held at the T'ownhan, on Wednesday, at 11 a.m. The magistrates on thie Bench were: The Mayor (Mr Walter Spurrell), and Mr C. W. Jones. Mrs Collard, the wife of the landlord of the Queen's Hotel, was charged with being drunk and disorderly Defendant did not appear; but Mr White appeared for her, and asked the Bench to excuse her absence. Mr C. W. Jontes said that ho was exceed- ingly sorry for the defendant, but he should like to treat everybody alike. She ought to be present. Mr White said that hte did not think he was wrong in suggesting eases were heard in the defenadnt's absence, when the defendant was legally represented. If h had intended to defend the charge, and to call witnesses, of course the defendant must be present, but he was there to plead guilty to the charge. Mr C. W. Jones said that he was very strongly of opinion that they ought to treat everybody alike. Mr Whitte sa. d that sometimes when a defendant did not appear, a warrant was issued against him. He did not think that they would be so harsh in this case. Defen- dant being a respectable woman, felt her position very acutely. He submitted that as the clefendant was legally represented, the Bench might take the case in her aboence Mr C. W. Jones said that he could not compel the defendant to appear; neither could anybody compel him to sit on the case. If any poor woman had a similar charge against her, she would be compelled to appear. He did not understand why the woman who was in custody did not appear. Mr White said that she was released on bail the previous night at 11.30 p.m. He was perfectly certain that (although he could not give chapter and verse) the Bench had heard cases in thie absence of the defendant. Mr C. W. Jones said that he did not re- member a drunk and disorderly oase being heard in the absence of the defendant in such circumstances. Sometimes people were never locked up, but, in fthis case defendant had been lockde up, and neleasled on bail. It was a very ipainf ul case, but he was strongly of opinion that everybody should be treated alike. He! would retire from the Bench on the hearing of the case, as it might be said that he was vindictive, and had in- sisted on the defendant's presence. Mr White hoped that Mr C. W. Jones would remain on the Bench. He asked that a constable be sent; to fietoh the defendant. Mr C. W. Jones asked Mr White if in the courtsle of his long experience he remembered a similar case being heard in the absence of the defendant. Mr White sa;d that he could not give chapter and verse, but it was on record. Mr C. W. Jones asked if it was on record t.110 t a person was released on bail, and that the case was heard in their absence. Mr White said that he believed it was done vi the London couiils-in the West End at any rate. Mr C. W. Jones If she was the greatest lady in the land, let us try and treat every- body on the same lines, once they get into the clutches of thie. law. Mr White It is very healthy to hear the Bench saying so. Mr C. W. Jones: I hope my remarks will not 1 e misccflistruted; no one sympathises with Mr Collard more than I do. The Mayor: I quite agree; I don't think we ought to make any distinction. Mrs Collard was sent for, and soon appeared. P.C. Lodwick said that about 7 p.m., the previous evening he, saw the defendant put out of the Queen's Hotel. She was trying to go back, and called her husband evil names. She caused a crowd to collect; in about ten minutes she came back to the hotel, and was put out again. He asked her to go away a second time, and she refused. He took her to the police station, and locked her up. Mr White said (that since March last Mrs Collard had been separated from her husband by mutuial agreement. Mrs Collard's daugh- ter had lately come up from Haverfordwest with her baby for a change of air, as she was is ill-health. Somebody had been twitting Mrs Collard that this daughter was usurping her place in the house, and this rankling in her ? rea&t, and under the effects of excite- ment perhaps as much as drink, was guilty of this disord rly conduct. The Bench fined defendant 5s and costs.
The Question of the Hour. -n.- The question of the hour in thousands of homes is how to regain strength already lost how to be able to meet the increasing demands of the future how to fortify the system against disease; how to enable the father, with his failing health, to continue his occupation; how to keep up the mother from giving way under the weight of family cares how to ensure the son against break- ing aown under the burden of studies or daily work how to save the delicate daugh- ter from becoming weaker still- how to in- fuse new life into the child who does not seem to get on. These are the qustions which really press on individual considera- tion in hundreds of cases day by day, and week by week. There is now, fortunately, a] satisfactory answer to this question, and that is use Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters, the vegetable tonic, acknowledged to be the best remedy of the age for Nervousness, Weak nes,, Low Spirits, Loss of Apetite and Indi- gestion.

United Counties Agricultural Show. A meeting of the Council of the United Counties' Agricultural Society was held at the Boar's Head Hotiel on Wedsesday at 1 p.m. There were presest Dr Bowen Jones, Carmarthen; Mr John Phillips, Caerlleon Mr J. Seourfileld, Blaenwernddu; Mr W. G Owen, Hafod Mr J. Lloyd Thomas, Tanlan; Mr D. Davies, Newcastle Emlyn; Mr Robert Footman, Havodwen; Mr D. Davies, Capel- dewi; asd the Secretary (Mr D. H. Thomas).
THE OBJECTION TO "NORBURY SQUIRE. The Secret "y said that he had received a letter from Mr Matthias after the sotice of tl-v- present meeting had been sent out. He did not think that it could be discussed that day, as they liad not given Mr Matthias notice. Mr John Scourfield: I don't see that. It was decided to have the lettier read. Mr atthias stated in the letter that he could only say what, he had already said before, that the horses he had estered at Oarmarthes, were his own absolute property. He had brought them with him from Tyrdref Newcastle Emlyn, as he was allowed to do t under his agreement—to keep them and do the best, with them. In the entry form at Richmond, he had written Gwalia Stud Farm, per T. J. Matthias." He did not think it would be found that they were entered under the name of the Gwalia Stud Co., as was suggested. Evtervone could testify that" Norbury Squire was with him at Newcastle Emlyn; he had bought the horse in the previous March. The horse had been shown in his name right throughout the iseason. He could assure them that no one could deal straighter with the Society than he had done. The Secretary said that he had written and informed Mr Matthias that as his letter had not come in time for the meeting of the Council to-day, and that it would therefore comie before the Council meeting on the 7th of January. Dr Jones proposed that the discussion be adjourned. He did not think there was any mention of Mr Matthias' name in the cata- logue of Richmond show. The Chairman said that hie noticed that this was a complaint, and not an objection. He had thought a complaint should be sent in by one of the officials of the Society, and not by an outsider. The Secretary said that thlere was a minute to the effect that he was to bring forward any complaint made to any official of the Society on the show ground. The Chairman said that when a person lodged an objection h ehad t odeposit money. Mr John Scourfield said that the fact that they had had the matter under consideration prievented them going back now. The Chairman said that. there ought, to be a distinction drawn between objections and complaints. The person who made a com- lodged an objection he, had to deposit money.
CORRESPONDENCE. Earl Cawdor wrote that an engagement in London prevented his being present at tthe meeting. Col. Lewes wrote that he was prevented coming because he was laid up with an attack of the gout. Mr Clement Williams, of Penally, wrote enclosing 927 2s for prizes and subscriptions for thie current year. He, however, stated that, he would not promise to give as much next year. Mr C. W. R. Stokes wrote stating that, he had had a subsequent conversation w'th Mr Clemjent Williams, who had now decided to give the same amount next y-ar. Mr Stokes however thought that there were many others who could give as much as he did. The Secretary said that Col. Hughes in- formed him ve-lbally that he would not be able to attend the meeting.
REVISION OF THE PRIZE LIST. The Secretary said that the committee which had be n appointed to revise the prize list had met on the 22nd November. They found that there would be a balance of P,90 in hand besides the sum on deposit. They recommended that an additional L40 should be put on deposit, and that the remaining E30 be spent in providing additional prizes. Some alterations were suggested in the prize list. A prize of E3, L2, and il for the best foals by Lord Dacre," offered by Mr W. Y. H. Thomas, was accepted. It was also re- commended that a prize not exceeding £ o should be offered for any novel agricultural implement likely to be of servic to farmers in the three counties. Mr Scourfield suggested that a prize be offered for those who had never exhibited before; something ought to be done to en- courage those who had not yet exhibited, and who thought they had no chance. The Secretary: What would you give it for ? Mr Scourfield: A bull and a cow would be the best. The Secretary: For a man who has never won a, first prize before. Mr Scourfield For a man who has never exhib ted before. The Secretary: Don't you think that that ought to be done; by the smaller shows ? Mr Scourfield They show at the smaller shows, but they won't show here. Mr David Davies suggested that there should be more prizes in the tenant farmers' clashes. The Secretary said that they had given prizes in two calf classes for tenant farmers, and they had decided to withdraw them in 1901. It would be peculiar to offer them again. It was decided to recommend the giving of an addtiional £1 prize money in several classes (shorthorn cattle, and nearly all the horses).
A SHOEING COMPETITION. Mr Harries, Pilroath, wrote suggesting that they have a shoeing competition at the show on the lines of that. held at Llangain recently. Mr Scourfield thought the suggestion an excellent one. and it was decided that the matter be referred to a special committee.

Hockey. On Thursday last the Llandilo team were visited by Carmarthen, and the homesters had a very lucky win by two goals to one. During the opening half the play was of a very desultory character, both teams seeming rather half-hearted in their work, and no score resulted. After resumption, there were eigne of an awakening and good play was witnessed. Llandilo opened the score, and soon afterwards added a second goal. This reverse put Carmarthen on their mettle, and for the remainder of the game Llandilo were on the defensive. During this time D J Davies played an exceptionally fine game for Carmarthen, taking the ball down his wing again and again and giving some beautiful centres to the other forwards. These, however, were quite off-colour and unable to do anything with the ball. They only found the net once, were at least half-a- iozen goals should have been scored. For Llandilo, T C Thomas, Roberts, Williams, md D 0 Jones were most prominent, while D J Davies, G B Isaac, and T. Jones were the best men on tne uarmartnen siae, Neath visited Carmarthen on Saturday, when the general opinion of the homesters was that their long-held ground record was at last to come to an end. Being market day, some of the regular playing eleven could not turn out, and, as a result, a general re-arrangement of the team took place-happily, with most satisfactory results. The Neath men were on the ground soon after 3.30 o'clock, but the laggards of the home team were the usual half-hour behind time, so that the game did not start till four o'clock. From the bully- off O'Sullivan got possession of the ball and passed to D J Davies, who scored for Car- marthen the first hali-minute of the game, The homesters were soon again in the Neath D, when O'Sullivan found tne net, but, as the whistle went the same time for a foul, the goal was disallowed. This free, how- ever, did not bring much relief to the visitors, for the ball was quickly returned to the front of the goal, and D J Davies sent in a capital shot, which the visitors' goal- keeper succeeded in stopping. His saving stroke was smartly followed up by Yorath, who was successful in putting the ball through Shortly afterwards Moore Gwyn scored for Neath, after some very nice work in getting the ball into th6 home circle. At half-time the score was :—Carmarthen, two goals Neath, one goal. On resuming play, the homesters were again the aggressors, and kept the ball in the visitors' territory, almost the whole of the time. Clarke, however, defended splendidly, and for a time prevented any further scoring, but D J Davies eventually got in a very hot shot, which proved to much for him, and when the game was abandoned shortly afterwards owing to darkness setting in Carmarthen came out victors by three goals to one. The game throughout was an exciting and very well-contested one. There was an excellent individual work on the Neath side, Moore Gwyn and S Clarke being specially prominent. Carmarthen, for a wonder displayed better combinaiion, and got in some nice passing. D J Davies, O'Sullivan, G B Isaac, T Jones, and Annand figured very creditably-in fact, everyone of the homestere showed up well. This report was held over from last week.
