Over 50,000 Miles Covered. Scenes of unparalleled enthusiasm marked the home-coming of the Treorchy Royal Male Choir on Saturday after their fourteen months' tour in the British Colonies. The streets and the leading business premises" were gaily decorated with multi-coloured bunting, and a triumphal arch bearing appropriate mottoes had been erected near the Stag Square. The party reached Southampton be- tween 2 and 3 o'clock on Saturday morn- ing, but their progress to the Rhondda had been delayed in accordance with the wishes of the Reception Committee at Treorchy, who were arranging a Wel- come Home" in their honour. Treorchy was reached by the 6.19 train, the party travelling in a special saloon. The approach of the gaily decorated engine, and the firing of railway detonators was the signal for a rousing cheer, which was renewed again and again as the train drew up to a stop. The saloon was imme- diately surrounded by a gladsome crowd, eager to extend the ever-ready welcome to the bronzed vocalists. Mr. William Thomas, the conductor, and his colleagues were officially welcomed by Councillor W. T. Jones, J.P., the chairman of the Reception Committee, and upon emerging from the railway station, every member of the party was presented with a button- hole by three little maids .attired in Welsh costume. A triumphal procession was hastily organised, headed by Cory Workmen, Owmparo and Treorchy (Wesleyan) Bands, and the party, mounted in brakes, were conveyed through streets crowded with thousands of spectators, who cheered lustily at the sight of the boys."
