It is a most valuable report, and reflects a great deal of minute and detail investigation. The Rhondda. District Council is no longer an ordinary Urban Authority. It stands at the head of the Urban Authorities of the country, and its turnover represents sums

Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade. The usual monthly meeting of the above Chamber was held on Wednesday evening at the Grocers' Rooms, Wellington Cham- bers. Mr. J. Owen Jones occupied the chair. A letter was read from Deputy Chief Constable Cole. stating that he had written to the Chief Constable in regards to the request of the Chamber for a con- stable to be allocated to watch after their interests under the Shop Hours Act. The matter was afterwards discussed, one member being of the opinion that the services of a constable would .not be refused if the Chamber were prepared to pay for it. On the matter of uniform closing in the Valley, it was decided to write to the other Chambers throughout the Valley to ask their co-operation. SHOP ASSISTANTS' OUTING.. The choosing of a day for the shop assistants' annual outing was considered. Mr. Thos. Evans (Temple of Fashion) proposed that Bank-Holiday Tuesday, August 3rd, be the day fixed. This was seconded by Mr. D. J. Griffith. An amendment was put by Mr. John Lewis for a Thursday, but the proposition of Mr. Evans was carried. ROYAL VISIT. It was proposed by Mr. D. J. Griffiths, and seconded by Mr. Alcwyn Evans, Blaenclydach, that the business houses be closed at 1 o'clock on Friday, July 23rd, on the occasion of the Royal visit to Mid- Rhondda. The proposition wa-s carried unani- mously. CARNIVAL ARRANGEMENTS, An elaborate programme has been arranged by the committee selected to look after the interest of the carnival and rustic sports that will take place imme- diately after the Royal visit. Seventeen items have been decided upon, and the committee anticipate a very successful issue from their venture. Mr. L. W. Llewelyn has very kindly put the De Winton. Grounds at their disposal. There is one race at least that should be very interesting, and that is to be, confined to the members of the Chamber, and it is expected that each member will enter. PRESENTATION TO PRINCESS LOUISE. The Chamber of Trade have decided to present a silver casket to the Princess. The casket, which is to be supplied by Mr. Barney Isaacs (Mirror of Gemsi), will be surmounted by the figure of a collier, lamp in hand, and pick by his side; on one side will be a. photo of a colliery, and on the other side a photo of the Judge's Hall; and it will be ornamented with the Welsh Dragon on the four corners. In addition to the casket, an illuminated address will be presented to Her Royal Highness. We are in a position to state that it has been definitely decided for the Royal party to make their return journey to Miskin Manor through Penygraig;, Tonyrefail, and Llantrisant. thus giving the friends in the Ely Valley an oppor- tunity of showing their loyalty to the Royal Family. Mr. Rhys Williams is generously providing tea for all the school children in the Rhondda district, includ- ing the Roman Catholic School. The number of children to be thus treated is estimated at 8,362.
Drowned Whilst Playing. Edwa-rd Thomas Board, aged 6 years, of Coronation Terrace, Porth, was playing by a pond on the mountain side near his home on Tuesday, when he fell into the water and was drowned. It anpears that he was trying to seize a, piece of floating wood, when he lost his balance and fell in. Some of his little playmates tried to rescue him, but lie sank before effective assistance was at hand. His body was recovered by P.O. Williams, and artificial respiration resorted to without success.

Royal Visit to Mid-Rhondda July 23rd, 1909. The route of procession has now been definitely arranged. The Princess, motor- ing from Miskin Manor, will arrive at Porth about 2.45, where she will receive an address from the Porth Chamber of Trade, afterwards proceeding through Cemetery Road and Trealaw Road to the New Memorial Hall, where the opening ceremony takes place, and presentations made by the Rhondda District Council and Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade, leaving the hall about 4 o'clock, proceed- ing through Trealaw Road. Ynyecynqn Road, over new bridge to Llwynypia Road, through Tonypandy, Penygraig, Williamstown, Tonyrefail, to Miskin Manor. It is hoped that all householders along the line of route will make the best efforts possible at decoration in honour of the first visit of any of the Royal Family to our locality.

money which would stagger the. Councillor of twenty years ago. The departments are many and growingljc. important in the scope of their operations. The report should have the most careful reading of the ratepayer, and obviously the Com- mittee would not resent any practical criticism on the recommendations submit- ted. These criticisms require expert capacity, but there is no doubt that. if applied into routine, the public servico of the Rhondda would be greatly facili- tated. We are glad to note that Mr. Smith, the chairman, and other represen- tatives have brought into their delibera- tions the conclusions arrived at after com- parison with the methods in vogue in other districts. The discussion of the scheme in detail will occupy some time, but we trust the public will maintain its interest in these discussions. It would be distressing, after such an elaborate report, not to reap the benefits of many of the recommendations. .'l.. !4 .:L -'l. We are glad to observe from the report of the Education Committee that a con- ference with the teachers to discuss the new regulations has been raiited. We should think that variety of opinion will be present only on a few clauses. In the main the regulations, which have received deliberate consideration, are generally non-contentious; and the outcome of the conference will result in a smoother order of things in the schools generally, which, after all, is the purpose of all such regulations. That such a schedule of governing rules was necessary, no one can dispute. It is quite impossible to work such a. large organisation as the education of nearly 30,000 scholars without such a scheme of rules. In corporate work a certain amount of stereotyping is unavoid- able. The prime consideration in a set of school regulations is that they are framed with the view of inducing the best work with the least irritation to the worker. The Committee obviously desire this end, and, further, we may say that the- concession of a conference expresses the gratifying fact that the principle of mutual understanding between the repre- sentatives of the people and the educators of the children its i-espected as education- ally essential.
