A Music Hall for Tony. pandy. [SPECIAL TO THE LEADER."] The days when people never mentioned music halls, except under their breath, and then never in the "presence of chil- dren. are happily gone by for ever. Those places of entertainment, which were once regarded with holy horror by everyone who had any pretensions to respectability, have demonstrated pretty clearly that they are not the dens of iniquity that they were commonly supposed to be. It is possible that ten and twenty years ago the entertainments provided by the "Halls" were not quite so refined or quite so proper as they might have been; but, after all, we are not living ten or twenty years ago, but in the present, and to-day, and it would be an untruthful and an unjust man who said that the type of amusement provided by the Halls was not every bit as wholesome, laughter-making and profitable as the great majority of regular plays. It is an great majority of regular plays. It is an accepted truism—rendered wearisome by frequent repetition—that the present age is an age of rush and axeitement. The majority of mankind is working not merely steadily, but with feverish haste. A man must cram the pleasures and amusements of his life into a few hastily- snatched hours. It may sound exagger- ated, but it is none the less true, to say that music halls were a great national want, and that to-day they are becoming national institutions. To-day the average music hall is a marvel of architectural and artistic beauty, and there the average man may sit amid pleasant surroundings, in company with his best-loved pipe, and for an hour or so forget the black dog of care which he has left behind him in the street, and he will go home to bed a better and a braver man, because his heart is lighter. Tonypandy is to have a music hall—in fact, Tonypandy has a music hall—for next Monday sees the public opening of one of the prettiest and most comfort- able halls out of London—the New Empire of Varieties. The architect is Mr. G. F. Ward, of Birmingham and London, who has had world-wide experience in modern theatre construction. Mr. Ward has acted in conjunction with Mr. J. T. Jenkins, of Porth, who has superintended every detail of the construction with painstaking minuteness. The front eleva- tion, which occupies 75 feet of the road- way, is a very handsome one of a. modern type of architecture, viz., rusticated terra cotta relieved with cement panels. The height of the building is increased at each end, and forms a couple of towers. The windows are irregularly and quaintly placed. The construction of the building has been entrusted to Messrs. E. R. Evans and Bros., contractors, Cardiff. One of the members of that firm-Mr. E. 'K Evans-courteously conducted me over the building. I was first shown the vesti- bule rapidly being decorated by a busy army of workmen. I then went on the stage, where I obtained a splendid view of the auditorium, which consists of stalls, pit, grand circle, upper circle and gallery. The arrangements behind" were of a complete and perfect character. The dressing-rooms, both behind and below the stage, are roomy. A capacious band-room runs the whole length of the stage, and the whole is shut off from the front of the house by iron fire-proof doors. The stage itself, which is nearly 22ft. in depth, is planned on the most modern system. The width of the actual proscenium is 30ft., and the stage will be illuminated with electric footlights and electric battens. The height of the build- ing over the stage has been carried to nearly 70ft., so that it will be unnecessary to roll any of the scenery. An asbestos curtain wiii shut off the stage from the auditorium, and with the iron fire-proof doors, completely obviates any danger to the house should the scenery at any time catch fire. The floor of the house has a rise of over an inch in the foot, The scheme of colour in the house is dark red and terra cotta, while the ceiling is of cream picked out with pale blue and gold scroll work. There are capacious boxes, one on each side of the stage, which are capacious and comfort- able to a degree, and will doubtless com- mend themselves to family parties. I was much struck with the marvellous sighting of the house. A house some 60ft. in length and 50ft. in height can- not be called a small one, and yet a per- fect view of the stage can be obtained from even the remotest corner of the auditorium, not even excepting the gallery. This is probably due to the fact that the house has been constructed on the modern principle, which does away with all columns, girders being used in- stead. What an improvement this is can only be appreciated by those who know what it is to be obliged to crane their necks round some obstacle to obtain a glimpse of the stage. Some of these girders are simply gigantic, and some of them weigh no less than four tons apiece. The front of the grand circle is composed of panel work in cream and gold, from which branch sorays of electric lights. The roof and boxes being also decorated in similar style. The whole building, it may be mentioned, will be lighted by electricity, with the exception of the big sun" burner in the ceiling; the elec- tricity being generated on the premises by an electric dynamo of the latest con struction, driven by a gas engine of 42 horse-power. Although this installation alone has run away with no less than -960, gas has in addition been laid on throughout the building, in case any necessity should arise for its general use. Fire appliances are laid in readiness, and these have been tested and found satis- factory by the Mid-Rhondda Fire Brigade. The seats in the grand circle are com- fortable—tip-up chairs covered with crimson plush. At the back of the upper circle is a nicely fitted bar, and at the side of the circle is arranged a lounge, which will form a welcome retreat for such as desire to have a chat or smoke a cigar in peace, and even from here an excellent view of the stage can be had. Similar lounges are also fitted up under the boxes. Especial care has been taken to secure proper ventilation for the build- ing—a very necessary step, for few places can become so hot and stuffy as a music hall. However, there is no need for any fear in this direction in regard to the Tonypandy Empire Theatre of Varieties, The most modern ventilators have been called into requisition, while air shafts to the roof from the pit enable the air t& be renewed in the lower portion of the building. ITie most elaborate pre- cautions have been taken to secure against all danger from fire. It is worthy of mention that in no case is the cltiQr used as an entrance—to no matter what part of the building—employed as an exit as well. There are a number of extra exits, opening out to the sides and back of the building, rendering escape easy. Fireproof material has been utilised to its fullest extent; indeed, wood has played a very small part in the con- struction of the building. The stairs leading to the different parts of the building are of stone and easy to mount. The manager and clerks will have no cause t° complain of close quarters, for the offices provicM for^ these gentlemen are of a most convenient nature. The general impression that tue build- ing gave me was one of great strength, beauty and comfort, and I congratulate Mr. William Morgan upon the result of his efforts. It was Mr. Morgan who, struck with the unique position of this site for the purpose to which it has been utilised, secured the ground, got together the syndicate to erect the building, car- ried out the negotiations with the lessees, and, in fact, has been the moving spirit of the whole undertaking. The London syndicate who have acquired the lease, have elected Mr. Morgan as one of the directors, and have appointed Mr. S. M. B. Hoole, late of the Hippodrome, Crouch End. N., as manager of the Tony- pandy Empire. The formal opening will take place on Friday, when many of those people who have so frequently passed it while it was building, and have speculated upon what it would look like inside when completed, will be able to satisfy their curiosity. To commemorate the ceremony a luncheon will be provided on the stage for upwards of 100 invited guests, when Mr. Leonard Llewelyn will preside. I venture to predict that on Monday night the auditorium, which will accom- modate about 2,000 persons, will be filled to overflowing with an audience who will be agreeably surprised, and find their rosiest anticipations fulfilled beyond measure.

Co-operation and Competition. A nublio meeting was held at Old Bethania Chapel, Tonypandy, on Wednes- day, the 3rd inst., under the auspices of the Mid-Rhondda Co-operative Society, when Mr. G. H. Bibbings, B.A., Vaydif-r,, delivered a lecture on The Relation of Co-operation and Competition." Mr. Ben Davies presided. The speaker explained that the law of competition extended throughout the jMii verse. It was natural; but in olden days iu }ValS a, competition of desIre-a. desire to help Olie's TieigiiuvW, WOT it meant fightiiig-fighting to get above one another, not caring whether in doing so they threw their rivals into poverty. Money-getting was the object aimed at with the result that one man wag obliged to overburden himself with sweated labour for a poor living, whilst the other got all profits. Co-operation, continued the speaker, did away with all this. All were equally improved by it.
