Witness did not strike her anta- gonist at all. Sarah Cole, 36, Penywain, confirmed the evidence of the last witness. Elizabeth Aubrey, 25, Penywain, gave j further corroboration.

Taith y Perenin yn yr 20fed Gannif. PROBLEMS FOR SOCIALISTS. (Continued.) I have lost Navvy Pat, and I miss him sadly; no one could sum up social, poli- tical, or religious situations more con- cisely or quaintly than be, and Preacher Pat also has departed. He had been try- ing to borrow three ha'pence for over two months, and his failure had so discour- aged him that he left the locality. Finally. I have gone on tour, and have got into different surrondings. My present hotel is a small one, num- bering only 24 single beds, and is entire- ly occupied by navvies; quiet, orderly, hard-working, with now and then a booze, but the first Saturday has passed with- out a fight and no noise worth mention- ing. They are all good cooks in a rough way; can turn out a roast joint with two, perhaps three vegetables and a pud- I ding. They are tidy in appearance, doing their own washing and mending, in one or two cases adding a very little ironing. There Js no woman in the house, and this may possibly account for its quietness. I almost made up my mind that I would find nothing to add to my problems for Socialists this week, when I came across a crockery auctioneer who showed me a paid-up Federation card. He has been a repairer for eight years after being assistant for two years, but spends the summer months as a crockery hawker cr to save a bit," which he can't do while at work. Next day came two navvies who had got work that morning. They recognised me as an ac- quaintance of twenty years ago, when I knew them both as doorboys. In 1898 they tried hard to get up an anti-Mabon party and nearly succeeded. A couple of years ago they ceased working as colliers at Aberdare and took to navvy work, as they were disgusted with the mismanage- ment of the Federation by our leaders. They were delighted with my figures, which they had seen in '98, and had since lost sight of. They found me reading the "Leader," and borrowed it; had a laugh over Navvy Pat, and then went into Mr. C. B. Stanton's policy, and the crockery man joining them the whole situation was soon under hot discussion. The slang of the navvies and the traveller added vigour if not polish to the dis- cussion, and I should much like to see the three placed at the head of the Feder- ation before the next meeting of the Con- ciliation Board. The result would be a finish to the lukewarm milk and water policy which in 12 years has nearly ruined the coal trade. You would not have i space for all the points discussed, but a summary from memory will be interest- ing. The non-unionist question is not the most vital, other matters taking first place. After electing substitutes for some of our leaders, yearly elections to be the rule no one to occupy any office more than three years. The recent agree- ment to be broken and amended to some- thing similar to or better than 1890—1, the pleas on which it could be broken being that it is too one-sided to be just or even legal; that owners persistently use non-unionists to break prices and impose objectionable conditions; that Clause lOa is ignored, viz., rates and prices to be as in 1877-79 respectively. They considered it folly to break up the Federation, but favoured the idea of hauliers and timbermen each forming lodges. Most of the non-unionist trouble would cease when things were put right, and instead of show cards, the hauliers should be appointed to look after de- faulters—provision to be made for that in the amended agreement. The proposal for stopping the Feder- ation money in the office was foolish, and 2d. in the pound would not be enough; so many thousands of men not making a pound a week, while paying te advance to unionists and refusing it to non-union- ists was illegal and impossible. Too much money had been spent in strikes against non-unionists; the hauliers could do all that was required at one-tenth of the expense. That all men applying for work should first get a clear card from the secretary, and that should be accept- ed at the office as necessarily preceding signing on; the question where last employed?" to be in no case either asked or answered, as that was the discharge note" in a new form. Disputes to be settled by the works committee and the County Court, or if involving more than one- col- liery, by the District and County Court, at the option of the men. Notice to ter- minate contracts to be given at any time, not necessarily on first of month, aM to terminate in four weeks from date. I had been appealed to several times, but declined to intervene as their differences were immaterial and I enjoyed listening; but now the deputy was sounding U lights out." All the other occupants of the kitchen were interested, aùd.1 was asked for an opinion before we dispersed to bed. My verdict will be brief. I said, let the colliers of South Wales and Monmouth- shire give us the power, and we four will in two months pick from the Padding Kens of South Wales an executive that will outclass the present one in brains, figures, and statesmanship.

II Evolution of the Bible." ADDRESS BY REV. GRIFFITH THOMAS. M.A., CARMARTHEN. Rev, Griffith Thomas, M.A., Carmar- then, was the speaker at. the meeting of the St. John's Bible Class last Sunday afternoon. There was a very good at- tendance, over which Rev. W. H. Jones, B.A., the teacher of the class, presided. The meeting was held in St. John s Churchyard, and was twice interrupted, first by the Salvation Army Band, when the speaker paused for a few moments, and later by a heavy shower of rain, which drove the gathering into the church. In introducing the speaker the chair- man said that Mr, Thomas was going to speak to them on "The Evolution of the Bible." He did not know whether the lecturer was going to pose as a Higher Critic or anything of the sort. He gen- erally came out as a fighting man. Mr. Thomas remarked that some per- sons might think that he harboured heterodox views, judging by the title of his discourse. However, he was not go- ing to touch controversial matters. He simply wanted to trace the growth of the Bible and relate the manner in which it had been handed down to us. The laws of Moses were not the oldest code .,f laws in the world. The Babylonian code was hundreds of years older than the 10 commandments. Tt was during the cap- tivity that the Jews saw the value of collecting the Holy Scriptures into one book. The canonical writings were COP-I, posed of (1) the Pentateuch; !2) the Psalms and other bocks which took the form of sacred poems; and (3) the pro- phets. All the Scripural writings were in one language—Hebrew. The liter- ature of Israel was not so voluminous as the Assyrian and Babylonian writings, but the literature of Israel had life in it. The first step in the evolution of the Bible was the translation of it to Greek. We heard a good deal to-day about Garden Cities. Alexander the Great was an astute individual, and he gave a garden city-the best portion of Alexan- dria-to a number of Jews. In return, 72 Jews set about translating the Bible from the Hebrew to the Greek language, and gave the translation to Alexander. Seventy-two men had a finger in the pie, and it was rather remarkable that the translations in every instance were very much alike. When Christ was born there was only one original and one translation of the Bible. Greece was then declining in power and Rome was growing. Rome to a very large extent killed Greek. In fact it almost killed every language except the Welsh. (Laughter.) Every nation that Rome had something to do with, except the Welsh, lost its own language. As a Welshman he was very proud of that. The Latin language superseded Greek, and so the Bible was translated to Latin. One of the greatest theologians that the church had ever produced was St. Jerome. He gave the world a correct translation of the Bible into the Latin or vulgar tongue of the day. This tran- slation was called the Vulgate-vulgar or common tongue of the period. Latin served the world for many generations, but it died away like everything else. First of all Rome declined politically, and Latin declined as a commercial language. Other nations were evolving out of the old world, and one language in process of formation was the Anglo- Saxon. The English language took a thousand years to consolidate. The speaker went on to trace the steps that were taken by John Wycliffe and Purvey and others to have the Bible translated into English, and incidentally mentioned that a Canon of st Asaph, in the 14th Century, translated a portion of the Bible into beautiful Welsh. He (the speaker) preferred his translation of the Te Deum to the one used in the prayer books to-day. Mr. Thomas concluded by referring to the invention of printing and the subse- quent spread of the Bible amongst the people.

Pronouncing -6 Tirphil.11 Stipendiary's Lesson. At the Merthyr Police Court on Fri. day the Stipendiary had occasion to lecture a solicitor, and indirectly others who were in the court, upon the way Welsh place names were mis- pronounced. The advocate, a Welsh- speaking Welshman, in the course of a case in which he was interested, con- tinually mispronounced the word Tirphil. Each time it was Turphil," with the accent on the wrong syllable. The Stipendiary became impatient, cut short the solicitor's examination of a witness, and told him how to pronounce Tirphil. The solicitor said that 99 out of every 100 of the inhabitants of the district, the great majority of whom were Welsh people, pronounced it Turphil." Then" remarked the Stipendiary, they ought to be ashamed of them- selves I can understand Englishmen and other foreigners pronouncing it "Turphil," but I cannot understand Welshmen doing so." The lecture had its desired effect, and an effort was made to give the word its proper pronunciation.
