Budget Support at Pentre Speeches by Sir d. Compton Rickett, Mr. Wn-t. Brace, M.P., and Mabon. A public meeting in support of the Budget was held at Moriah Chapel, Pentre, on Tuesday evening, presided over by the Rev. Thomas Davies. The chief speakers were Sir J. Compton Rickett, M.P. (ex-president of the Eng- lish Congregational Union), Mr. William Abraham (Mabon), M.P., and Mr. Wm. Brace, M.P. A resolution in support of the Budget was moved by the Rev. E. W. Davies, Ton, and seconded by Alderman E. H. Davies. Sir J. Compton Rickett, who received a cordial reception, said he was present to support their member, though he believed Mabon needed no support from him. He had a warm place in their heart, and he had been told that the only reason for opposing him was to keep him engaged during the election so as to prevent him using his great influence against the foe in other parts of the country. He wanted to tell them- that Mabon was deeply respected in the House of Commons. He had the confidence of the whole of the Labour members, and the Liberals as well. He (SiF Compton) had known him for the past 15 years, and his respect for him had deepened into affection (applause). Proceeding to the Budget, the speaker said that a considerable change had of late come over the aspect of Liberalism. It had developed into Radicalism, into something that would test institutions and go to the root of things. It would examine things on their merits, and not on account of their antiquity. With such "an enormous foreign trade as this country had, he defied any Government to avoid the recurrence of periods of comparative un- employment—and unemployments was a tion that pressed itself upon S question which pressed itself upon every Government, and it could not be con- trolled by a Socialist Administration, as no Socialist Administration could govern the economic conditions of the world. They now found such a condition of things in this country, and at last it had dawned upon a stateman—and, fortu- nately, upon a Welshman—(applause)— that something must be done to bring about a change, so as to effectively deal with poverty and distress. That was the meaning of the Budget. It practically meant a revolution in Liberal methods- it meant a form of Collectivism, which, were he an individualist, he would look upon with a great deal of fear. It was, however, necessary at times to take small doses of poison to brace up one's con- stitution, and he was perfectly willing to take small doses of Socialism. He had no prejudice against Socialism or any other ism," and so long as no extreme experiments were tried, he would support taking a sufficient dose of it so as to brace them up to make a fresh start (applause). Proceeding, the speaker said that they wanted seven minions to extend the bene- fits of the old age pensions to those who had had recourse to assistance from the Poor Law (hear, hear). One hundred thousand was also required for Labour Exchanges, and £ 200,000 for the develop- ment of iand; whilst over £ 3,000^000 was required to meet the deficiency in the revenue for last year. They had, more- over, to provide for increased naval efficiency. They had to secure their naval defences in terms of Dreadnoughts, I and he honoured the Cabinet for having the courage to do what they had already done. They were also going to provide against unemployment, and were going to begin with an improvement on the German contributory system, viz., that there should be a compulsory contribution from the employers, a compulsorily deduction from the wages of the workmen, and a contribution from the State-a scheme which would provide against the haunt- ing horror of unemployment (applause"). There was also provision for insurance against sickness, and in Mr. Lloyd George's Budget there was nothing that would harm the friendly societies of the country. Having provided for unemploy- ment, sickness and death, they had eliminated a great deal of the causes of poverty. The Government would also deal with the Poor Law, and they would find that it would be revolutionised and the workhouse done away with. No longer would the old and the young, the _!O"1J- 'I.U"<iI<=- vicious and the virtuous be herded to- gether. The incurably bad would be treated one way, and the children would be put out into suitable homes. The reproach of the workhouse would be wiped out (applause). A Budget that provided for all these things was not Socialist, but humanitarian, and he trusted it would commend itself to the country (applause). MR. W. BRACE, M.P. Mr. W. Brace, M.P., said the simple fact in the situation was that the great mass of people who had been carrying burdens—too heavy burdens—were not making any complaint about the addi- tional burdens put upon them, but it was the wealthy and the rich who were raising the controversy. The great Rhondda Valleys had been transformed from pastoral land to a hive of industry which had given fortunes to people running into millions of pounds—fortunes obtained through the exploitation of labour and capital—and out of these enormous for- tunes was it unfair to ask these people to contribute a share to carry on the government of the country? (Applause). As far as the miners were concerned, they had instructed their leaders to table a Bill for the taxation of mining royalties, and when the Chancellor of the Exchequer embodied that principle in his Budget the men's representatives would be less than men if they did not stand firm for this principle (applause). If there was a mistake about the royalty tax, it was in its smallness. The key to social reform was finance, and the Chancellor had found a way of obtaining the money without burdening to distraction the poorest of the poor. And it was for the democracy to declare that they were not going to be side-tracked from the Budget-a Budget which brought new hope and a new vision into the lives of many thou- sands of people (hear, hear). He could not see anything wrong in the Budget whichever way it was analysed, and he had no anxiety as to whether the Lords rejected or accepted it. The attitude taken by the great landlords was simply ridiculous, and was a demonstration of selfishness which, if copied by the large mass of the people, would result in the wreck of the Empire (applause). MABON, M.P. Mr. W. Abraham (Mabon), M.P., who had a rousing reception, said that a ques- tion had been handed him inquiring Why did he, being a Labour member, oppose the Aliens Act, which was sun- ported-by the Miners' Federation?" He would only answer the question briefly, as he hoped when he was before them as a candidate to give them a night's sit- ting on that matter (laughter). The Act had not to his knowledge been sup- ported by the Federation, and Mr. Brace, too, was not aware of the Federa- tion support being given to it. He knew this-it was opposed by every Labour member in the House of Commons. His reason for opposing it was that the Act was based upon misconception, supported largely by misrepresentation, and pasrfxl for a purpose which its promoters and supporters carefully concealed. He was not going to give them that night his reasons for saying this-those would come later (hear, hear). Speaking of the Budget, Mabon described it as humane, just, and righteous. Budget or no Budget, he had no fear of an election in the Rhondda (applause). There was no part of the United Kingdom stronger in sun- port of the Budget than the Rhondda Valley. Nine-tenths of the boys in the Tory clubs would vote for the Budget and against the man who would support the Aliens Act (applause). The question at the next election would be: Who is to govern: the Peers or the people?" (Shouts of The people "). Mabon: That settles it (laughter and applause). The resolution was carried unani- mously.
Late Vicar of Llanwonno. The funeral took place on Monday of the Rev. Thomas Harries, B.A., vicar of Llanwonno, and formerly vicar of Cwm- parc.

Raymond (curate), Llanwonno; W. Jones, Swansea; T. Griffiths (vicar), Penygraig; and L. Davies (vicar), Dinas Powis. The inter- ment was at Llanwonno Cemetery, and the last rites were performed by Arch- deacon Edmolldes. There were many beautiful floral tributes. "1.

AFtid-Rhonddit Chamber of Trade. A special general meeting of the above Chamber was held at the Grocers' Rooms, Tonypandy, on Wednesday evening, Mr. J. Owen Jones presiding. Complaints were made by several mem- bers as to the arbitrary manner in which the Inspector of Weights and Tvleasures was alleged to have dealt with scales, etc., submitted to him for inspection, and a deputation was appointed to wait upon the local members of the Local Govern- ment Committee of the County Council, with reference to the matter. BANQUET OR CONVERSAZIONE? The Banquet Committee reported having decided to abandon the idea of a banquet in favour of a conversazione, as it was feared that a difficulty would be encountered in obtaining a temporary license. It was agreed to accept the recommen- dation of the Committee. CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS. With reference to Christmas holidays, it was resolved to close on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday (December 25th, 27th and 28th), and that the shops be kept open on New Year's Day. ADVERTISING HANDBOOK. A discussion ensued on the proposed Advertising Handbook. The Advertising Committee recom- mended that Mr. G. W. Richards ("Rhondda Leader") be appointed to canvass local tradesmen for advertise- ments. This was agreed to and carried. The Chairman called attention to the fact that the Tramway Company still per- sisted in printing" Market Square for Tonypandy Square upon their tickets. As a tradesman residing in the vicinity of the Square, he strongly protested against the Company's action, and moved that the Company be written to on the matter. Mr. Llewellyn Evans seconded and the matter was agreed to.
Bradford Babies and the city Fathers. Consternation was spread in the hearts of Bradford mothers when they heard a few weeks since that the Arcadian Pavilion had been wrecked in the iecent storm, and that Bradford's great Baby Show was cancelled. On Wednesday, however, all was well; Virol, Limited, the proprietors of the well-known food, had come forward to keep faith with the mothers, and had organised a show on a I still larger scale. For weeks past, Bradford has been looking forward to the show, and eager mothers had been parading in front of Messrs. Busby's great establishment in Kirk-gate admiring the beautiful prizes, fifty in number. The Central Baths Hall, which- seats 1,500 people, was filled with am?.tious mothers and their babies, and a large number of Bradford ladies who cavie to see the babies and to support Mrs. W a le, the ex-Lady Mayoress, who distributed the prizes. The classes were divided accord ag to age; two bonny little girls from Shipley won the first prize for twins, and the winner of the class for children reared upon Virol was a splendid little specimen of humanity. Thirty nurses from the various hospi- tals of Bradford examined the babies one by one, taking into account all the various points that go to make a robust and healthy baby. Much amusement was caused after the show by the grouping of the City Fathers of Bradford, who submitted to the photographer's ordeal, each ntirsing one or two of the babies. TO REMOVE PAPER STAINS. They may be removed by applying a solution of oxalic acid, citric acid, or tartaric acid upon the paper without fear of damage. These acids take out writing ink, but do not interfere with printing. A WASH FOR. THE SCALP. one ounce of glycerine, half a drachm of oil of rosemary, one ounce of proof spirits, half ur 1 an ounce of honey, and half a pint of lavender water. Mix the oil of rosemary with the honey and spirits, and add the lavender water gradu- ally, shaking up well, then put in the glycerine, and cork. hi hi wm
