RHONDDA Evening Schools Delegation of Powers. Rhondda's Request Acceded To. A meeting of the Rhondda Evening Schools Committee was held at the Council Chamber, Pentre, on Wednesday, Mr. W. P. Nicholas, the chairman, pre- siding. The Chairman said that before proceed- ing with the business of the meeting, he would bring to their notice a communi- cation he had received in his capacity as Clerk to the District Council from Mr. Franklen, the Clerk of the Glamorgan County Council, embodying the follow- ing recommendations in the matter of delegating the County Council's powers in Secondary Education and Evening Schools to the Rhondda Council. The recommendations are as follow: — Recommends that the County Council agree with the Rhondda Urban District Council for the exercise by them-for one year, from the 1st October, 1909, of all the powers of the Council in respect of the management of the several schools and classes specified in the Secondary Educa- tion Sub-Committee's report of July 23rd last on the undermentioned conditions: — (a) The Rhondda Urban District Council will exercise their powers through their Education Committee in accordance with the Regulations of the Board of Education, and will appoint and pay all necessary correspondents, organisers, visiting and in- spectors. They will also be responsible for paying the teachers of the classes and indemnify the County against all claims in respect of such classes. (b) The Rhondda Education Commit- tee will conduct all correspondence relating to the classes direct with the Board of Education, and all reports of the Board or H.M. Inspectors will go direct to them. (This clause must be subject to the approval of the Board of Education). (c) At the close of the session a sum of jE750 shall be paid on account to the Rhondda Urban District Council by the County Council, and if the grants of the Board are receivable only by the County Council, a further sum esti- mated to equal them shall be advanced by the County Council at the same time. (d) In the month of September an account shall be made out of the net cost to the rates of the Evening Classes conducted in the residue of the County during the session, including a proper proportion of the salaries of organisers, visiting teachers and inspectors em- ployed by them, and there shall be paid before the 29th of that month by the County Council to the Rhondd'a Urban District Council (subject to the indemnity contained in paragraph (a) above) such a proportion of the said net cost as the assessable value of the Rhondda District bears to the assess- able value of the rest of the Adminis- trative County according to the County Rate Basis in force at that time, after deducting the above advances. (e) Any further monies required for the efficient working of the above schools and classes, or relating thereto, shall be raised by the Rhondda Urban District Council under Section 3 of the Education Act of 1902. Mr. Nicholas said this was a matter that neither the Chairman of the Educa- tion Committee nor himself could express an opinion upon until it had been dis- cussed by the members of the Rhondda Education Committee. Speaking as Chairman of the Evening Schools Com- mittee, he thought the resolution was a step in the right direction, and the thanks of the Rhondda Education Committee and the Rhondda people generally were due to the representatives of the Rhondda upon the County Council, who had worked so hard to secure this delegation of powers to the Rhondda Council. Whether the financial terms of the delegation were equitable was a matter which required more investigation, and he preferred not to express anything more in regard to it at the present. The principle of dele- gation had been recognised, and the Rhondda delegates had had to fight a strenuous battle in order to get this done. Speaking for himself—and he was sure he was voicing the opinion of the Committee generally—they were greatly indebted to the local representatives for the splendid fight they had put up. He did not think they should discuss the matter further that day, but proceed with the business as if the County Coun- cil's letter had not been received. Per- sonally, he believed they would accept the principle, and leave the threshing of the financial conditions to be discussed again. In a discussion as to the position of Porth Pupil Teachers' Centre, Alderman M. Williams said that this was a matter which required further readjustment. Mr. Tom John, M.A., said that as far as the co-opted members of the Commit- tee were concerned, they were glad that the Evening Continuation Schools would now become under the control of the people of the Rhondda, and having done that other things would follow. They should be thankful for this instalment, and the result would be that the Evening Schools would be more efficiently worked than in the past. Alderman M. Williams said that he believed Mr. Franklen intended to deal squarely with the question, and was anxious to see. that the Rhondda should have fairplay. The Chairman said he had not the slightest hesitation in saving that Mr. Franklen was entirely with them but he could not say that of some of the other officials. The matter then dropped, pending the next meeting of the Education Committee. Consideration was next given to various routine matters. Mr. T. G. Jones, local secretary (Pentre) of the Evening Classes, wrote resigning his appointment, and Mr. Berry stated he had provisionally appoin- ted Mr. Royal], of the Education Office, in his place. On the motion of the Chair- man, the appointment was not ratified, in view of the question of delegation. Mr. Royall also applied for some remuneration for work done in connec- tion with Evening Schools during the past four years. Considerable discussion followed, but on the motion of Mr. Tom John, the matter was referred to the Rhondda Education Committee. County Councillor Enoch Davies asked why no Evening Schools were held in Blaenrhondda and Blaenycwm. In his opinion, these were the very places where

Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade. Mid-Rhondda as a Shopping Centre. A meeting of the* above Chamber was held on Wednesday evening at the Grocers' Rooms, Wellington Chambers, Tonypandy. Mr.- J. Owen Jones occupied the chair. The report of the deputation that waited upon Mr. Flacke, the postmaster of Pontypridd, in relation to telegraph offices for Blaenclydach and Tonypandy Lower was given by the secretary, Mr. J.. Rees, who stated that Mr. Flacke failed to give them any hope of ever securing telegraph offices for either of the two places named. He (Mr. Rees) had also been told that Mid-Rhonida had the usual number of offices which were to be found in equal areas of population and distance as Tonypandy and distrios. The Secretary then stated that he had written the Postmaster-General, Mr. Buxton, and Mabon in reference to. the matter. Ultimately, the matter was allowed to remain in abeyance until Lib-e next meet- ing of the Chamber. EXTRA POLICE CONS TABLES. The following letter was received from the Chief Constable re extra police fur the outlying streets in the district- Chief Constable's Office, Canton, Cardiff, Sept. 14th, 1909. To the Secretary of the Mid- Rhondda Chamber of Trade. Dear Sir,—I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 9th inst. The annual meeting of the Police Com- mittee, to consider applications for augmentations to the Force,, is to be held on the 18th October next. I will then place your application before them and strongly recommend the Committee to grant two additional constables for your district.—Yours faithfully, LIONEL LINDSAY, Chief Constable. On the proposition of Councillor James Evans (Blaenclydach), it was decided to send a copy of the above letter to each of the three local members of the Joint Police Committee, and ask them to sup- port the locality in applying for extra police. WILL MID-RHONDDA BECOME IN- CORPORATED ? The Chamber is anxious that Mid- Rhondda should be incorporated, and the first move in the matter has been made by the Secretary, who has written to two gentlemen asking them to deliver lectures before a public meeting which will be called for the purpose. The Chamber readily upheld what had been done by their Secretary, and it was. decided that a public meeting be called on October 12th at Messrs. Richards' Assembly Rooms, at which Mr. Isaac Edwards and Mr. Symmonds, Town Councillors of Mer- thyr, who were the two moving spirits in connection with Merthyr becoming in- corporated, have promised to address the assembly. ADVERTISING MID-RHONDDA. The report of the Advertising Commit- tee was given. The Cbmmittee recom- mended as the best way to advertise Mid- Rhondda as a shopping centre, the issuing of several thousand booklets, which would contain, amongst other matters, a com- pendium of local information. The Com- mittee further recommended Mr. E. Vaughan Davies (sub-editor, "Rhondda Leader ") as editor of the booklet. After some discussion, it was decided to adopt the recommendation of the Com- mittee and proceed at once with the pro- JeCt' CHAMBER BANQUET, A notice of motion to consider the ques- tion of having a banquet at an early date was brought before the meeting, and it was unanimously decided that a banquet be held in the near future, at the Judge's Hall, if possible. Mr. J. Owen Jones and Mr. John Rees were elected to represent the Mid- Rhondda Chamber of Thade at the forth- coming autumnal meetings of the Fede ration of Chambers of Trade, to be held at Dowlais. RAILWAY MATTERS. Mr. Llewellyn Evans brought before the notice of the Chamber the excursions run by the Taff Vale Railway to London. He stated that the Company gave every facility for the outward journey, but it was very inconvenient and annoying on the return journey to be forced to make a prolonged stay at Cardiff in the early hours of the morning. The London trains, he stated, arrived at Cardiff some- times about 5 o'clock in the morning, which meant a matter of waiting for a train for the Rhondda for nearly two hours. He thought the same privileges should be granted on the return journey as on the outgoing journey. Mr. J. Owen Jones brought before the notice of the members the delay of the Taff Vale Availway Company in settling claims that were made by tradesmen in respect to damaged goods, &c. He thought the Chamber should take the matter up, and that pressure should be brought to bear upon the Company rela- tive to a. quicker method of settling } claims. After adequate discussion, it. was decided to write to the Railway Company in respect to both matters.

Football. ASSOCIATION. II TON 3 gjs, QUEEN'S PARK RANGERS 1 The visit of Queen's Park Rangers (First Division, Southern League), the crack London organisation, to Ton on Monday evening last created widespread interest in the Valleys. In order to foster the Soccer code in South Wales, the Southern League Football Association are sending First Division teams of the League to play the premier Welsh clubs. The Rangers came with a clean sheet, having won four matches and drawn one. The game, from a spectator's point of view, was a very pretty one. Immediately after the start, the fine display and splendid combination of the visitors were at once noticeable. There was a finesse; about their movements that is not to be wit- nessed very often in South Wales games, and Ton for a few minutes were a little nonplussed. However, after a short time the Ton men seemed to have taken the measure of their opponents, and a more even game was witnessed. The play that led up to the Rangers' first and only goal was a. very fine bit of work. During the first half Ton had much the better of the game. Tom Davies centred beautifully to Fyfe, the home captain, who equalised with a splendid goal, amidst great enthu- siasm. The fine play of the homesters was doubtless an eye-opener to the men from the South. Ton missed several shots after this, and it was not long before Curtis, who had been playing a splendid game, delighted the Ton supporters by sending in another fine shot. After the interval, play became a little more determined, Ton playing for all they were worth, a few players becoming tem- porarily hoils cle combat. The visitors now seemed to make every effort to equalise, but their efforts were futile. About twenty minutes before the end Steer, one of the visiting forwards, retired hurt. From this to the end of the game the Rangers played brilliantly, their passing and combination being a treat to witness. Several shots were sent in, most of them, however, being wide of the mark. Just at the close the homesters' goal was a few times in danger, but the whistle blew without any further score resulting. The result came as a surprise to a good many. Ton rose to the occasion admir- ably, and their fine display must have been very gratifying to the supporters. The game should, and doubtless will, give a fillip to Soccer in the Principality. CWMPARC & TREORCHY UNITED v. CARDIFF CITY. The following eleven will represent Cwmparc and Treorchy United in the im- portant League match with Cardiff City on Saturday next:-Goal, Harry Jones or Hughie Roberts (Nantymoel); backs, Parton and lies; halves, Woodman, Mitchell and Dicky Jones; forwards, Jack Hughes (captain), Thoman, Bob Peake, Ted Richards, and Jack Evans. LEWIS MERTHYR JUNIORS 2gls" TRELEWIS 1. A very fine game was witnessed between the above teams on Saturday last at Tre- hafod. Trelewis, who nut up a strong defence, were, however, obliged to suffer a defeat, though not deservedly. A draw would have been a fairer result. D. J. Jones, the Lewis Merthyr outside right, however, was not to be denied, and after a most brilliant effort, during which he completely outplayed his opponents, he drove home a "beauty." Trelewis, no- thing daunted, soon equalised. Jones again went away with a dash, and with a daisy-cutter secured the winning goal. PORTH Y.M.C.A. 2gls, PENTRE PUPIL TEACHERS 1. The Y.M.C.A. boys, who are rather "hot" this season, very near came a cropper on Saturday, and had it not been for the genuine defence of Crabbe and Cann, the full-backs, they would inevit- ably have lost, for their opponents' for- wards played a dashing game and exhi- bited tactics above the average of juniors. Two brilliant efforts, initiated and finished by Tipney and Owen, gave the Porth boys the victory. Smart work on the part of the teachers resulted in a fine goal, but they could not equalise, though they played well.
RUGBY. TREHERBERT ATHLETICS 3pts., DINAS 0. The Treherbert Athletics won their first home match on Saturday. The game was played on the Treherbert N.U. Grounds, 11l fine weather and before a fair gate. Dinas were a much bigger and heavier lot than their opponents:, but they seemed unable to utilise to the best advantage their superiority in this respect. Tre- herbert playea a very vigorous game in the initial half and fairly penned up their opponents in their own territory. From one of the scrums on the Dinas line Jack Griffiths, the home inside half, received the ball smartly from his forwards, and instead of giving the leather up, he cut through a nice opening and scored a beautiful try, which Edgar Lewis failed to convert. This was the only score.. Many chances were lost through over- eagerness—a fault which many of the Athletic players should learn to rid them- selves of. TREORCHY 5pts., NANTYMOEL 0. Nantymoel encountered Treorchy in a friendly" on the Athletic Grounds on Saturday, in the presence of a gate not so large as, had been anticipated. This undoubtedly was due to the Pembroke Dock v. Cwmparc and Treorchy United match in a neighbouring field. Treorchy gave a good show, their passing bouts being of a distinguished character. After some play W. E. John, on receiving a timely transfer from J. Lewis, went in, Daly James converting. The visitors were frequently penalised for infringements.
Shots for Goal. Merthyr had an eye-onener on Satur- day last, when their old rivals—Ton— defeated them by the tune of 2 goals to 1. Hugh Williams played a magnificent game on the Penydarren Park. Rumour has it that Merthyr was the best team. Ton, it is stated, were too rough, as several Merthyr players were injured. 'Twas ever thus! Nothing is said of the poor Ton players who get bruised and knocked out. Ton rose beautifully to the occasion on Monday last, when they defeated Queen's Park Rangers by 3 goals to 1. All sup- porters are doubtless highly pleased at the performance of their pets. Parry (left wing) will probably be out of the field for a while, the result of an injury in Monday's match. Mr. W. E. Chillington. who spares no pains in his work as secretary, has arranged for the Crystal Palace team, First Division Southern League, to visit the Ynys on Monday week next, when, doubtless, there will be another record gate. The Treherbert Athletics won their match against Dinas on Saturday by a try to nil. But if they mean to make a good show this season, they should culti-
such schools should be held. Several applications had been made for classes. but for some reason or other, they had not been granted. Mr. Berry replied that the difficulty at Blaenycwm was that the only avail- able school was the infants', and the fur- niture could not be used. At Blaen- rhondda, a Night School had been tried, but had proved unsuccessful. Mr. Tom John said that "boys would not go a long distance to school, preferring to attend a, school in their own locality. co It was eventually resolved that Blaen- rhondda. should be placed on the list for Evening Classes.
vate the knack of piling on the score when they have the chance. The only try, fifored by Jack Griffiths (inside half), was as daring as it was beautiful. Were all the forwards working in the pack? We think not. But the commit- tee are keeping a sharp vigil. Look-out, ¡ shirkers! T. Leader, the Treherbert custodian. for his very creditable performance de- serves mention, but the visitors' full-back was in better form, especially in kicking. Treherbert N.U. were defeated by one goal and three tries to love at Ebbw Vale on Monday. The tries were scored by I Shiglo Thomas, Llewellyn and Thomas. Dai Davies added a drop goal to the score. Treherbert were minus Jack Rees, who was picked to play full-back. Jack played for Mid-Rhondda last season. He thought the game was to be played at Treherbert, and consequently came to Treherbert, to find that the team was already in Ebbw Vale. The Rhondda forwards played-finely and beat their opponents in the loose. It was the superior play of the Ebbw Vale backs that won the game for them. Hugh Jones, Porth, is also once more plying the leather. Jones has distin- guished himself in several First League matches in South Wales. An exceedingly fast winger, with a terrific shot. Jones is ever a source of danger to his opponents on the field, and his return is thus appreciated by his former chums. Downs, as a full-back, is better than ever, and will certainly distinguish him- self this year. His transfer to higher circles is a foregone conclusion.
