What Would You Do With the House of Lords ? An Invitation to Our Readers. Next Tuesday is the fateful day upon which the Lords' decision on the Budget will be made known. The terms of Lord Lansdowne's amendment are well known to most of our readers, and judging from their past record in stultify- ing all Liberal legislation, there can be but one issue-the Lords will reject the Budget. Six months of unexampled labour in the House of Commons will be destroyed in less than so many days, and the financial conditions of the country will be thrown into a state of unthinkable chaos. Grave warnings have already been uttered by the Lord Chancellor and other Liberal peers as to the peril of such an unconstitutional method, and some mem- bers of the Upper House have gone so far as to predict a revolution that will sweep away the vetoing power of that House. It is not our purpose here. to enter into the popular arguments against the House of Lords; we would rather invite our readers to say what, in their opinion, is the most satisfactory course open to every Liberal Government that may follow—to see that the will of the people as repre- sented in the Commons Assembly shall prevail. Would they end it, or mend if,? If the former, how can a Bill drafted for the sole purpose of depriving the Peeis of their present power become law, when it must be submitted for the approval of the self-same Peers? Would they mend it? What, then, shall be the constitu- tion of the Second Chamber, and what are the powers which they are prepared. to invest in such a body? This is the subject upon which we would invite our readers' opinion. The House of Lords will be the great question of the next General Election-and a discussion such as we now invite cannot fail to be of interest to every class of reader. Any letters sent us on the subject will be pub- lished as full as possible in the issue immediately after their receipt.
Liberal Candidate to oppose Mabon ? Rumoured Invitation to Premier's Son. It is rumoured in political circles in Pentre that, owing to the fact that Mr. Wm. Abraham (Mabon), M.P., has signed the L.R.C. constitution, the members of the Young Wales Liberal and Labour League propose approaching Mr. Raymond Asquith, the brilliant son of the Premier, with the intention of adopting him as the champion of the Rhondda Liberals in the coming election.
Porth Y.M.C.A. Lecture Course. On Tuesday evening last, at Salem (W.B.) Chapel, Mr. Edgar Bellingham, the eminent lecturer on Nature, delivered a most interesting lecture upon The People of the Desert." The capacious edifice was practically full. The address was highly instructive, the lecturer taking for his theme the Moors. His description of them, who and what they were, and whence they came, was very eloquent. The speaker proceeded to show the influence of Mohammed over these people and amongst other conquests, described that over Persia. He also dwelt largely upon the awakening of the Arabians, their successes, and their decline and fall. Mr. Wm. Evans occupied the chair.

Interesting Presentation at Porth. Late Postmaster Honoured. On Thursday evening last, at He Washington Hotel, Mr. Ben Davias, late postmaster, Porth, and Mrs. Davies were the recipients of so ne very handsome presents. After nine vears' service at Porth as postmaster, Mr. Davies, upon the conversion of the Porth Post Office to the dignity of a head office for the Rhondda Valleys, was promoted to the position of postmaster of Abertillery. Mr. and Mrs. Davies' departure occasioned much regret, as, by their geniality and readiness to render assistance to the public, they had won for themselves a very high place in the estimation of Porth people. Mr. E. R. Price, presiding over the meeting of the Porth postal staff, apologised for the inability of the indoor staff to be present owing to duty. None regretted this more than the absentees themselves." He was greatly. pleased to see their late postmaster once more amongst them. He regretted that their token was but a small one, but he trusted that, though small, it would convey their deep regard for Mr. Davies, and that it would be accepted by him in the same spirit as it was given (cheers). Con- tinuing, Mr. Price said that Mr. Davies, by being removed to his present position, had advanced a step higher, and he hoped it would prove a stepping-stone to other honours (applause). Mr. Patrick McGinn, in presenting Mr. Davies with a handsome pair of bronzes, expressed his pleasure at the honour conferred upon him of making the presentation. He hoped his late post- master would accept them not for their intrinsic value, but for the esteem and admiration which had prompted the gift. He regretted Mr. Davies' departure very much, but Porth's loss would prove a great gain to Abertillery. Similar tributes were paid by Messrs. P. Russell and W. A. Collins. who spoke on behalf of the Ynyshir staff. Mr. Davies, in responding, said he knew their presents were the outcome of an earnest desire, to show their regard for him, and he would always treasure them accordingly. He could never have a better staff to work with than the Porth staff, and it was with a sincere sense of pleasure and gratitude that he accepted their presents on behalf of Mrs. Davies and himself. The bronzes bore wl the following inscription:—"Presented to Mr. and Mrs. Davies by the Porth postal staff as a token of esteem on the occasion of their departure from Porth." Later in the evening, Mr. T. Davies presided over a very representative public gathering who had also assembled to do honour to the late postmaster. Mr. Davies was presented with a gold watch, and Mi's. Davies with a large silver tea The Chairman said he felt as one who tray. had done his best towards securing for Porth the head office, and that he was partly responsible for Mr. Davies' depar- ture, but he assured them that nothing had been further from their thougths and desires when they were working to obtain the head office. Continuing, the Chair- man spoke highly of the civility and kindly manner that had always been shown by Mr. Davies while at Porth. He had been their postmaster for 27 years, and he (the chairman) was pleased to say that he never had cause to complain of the post office staff (applause). Mr. J. Thompson said he had never been connected with a presentation where the recipients were more deserving of the honour. His great regret was that Mr. Davies was leaving Porth. Mr. A. Orchard (Porth Hotel) endorsed fully all that had been said, and expressed a hope that Mr. and Mrs. Davies would .find new friends in their new sphere, and that Abertillery would prove as congenial to them as Porth had proved (applause). Dr. R. D. Chalke, in presenting the tray to Mrs. Davies, said he did so on behalf of the townspeople of Porth and district, and hoped it would prove a pleasing memento of her nine years' ser- vice in the town (applause). The tray, a strikingly beautiful one, bore the following inscription: Pre- sented to Mrs. Ben Davies as a token of esteem and regard on the. occasion of her leaving Porth Post Office, September, 1909." Mr. D. M. Jones presented the watch to Mr. Davies. The watch bore the fol- lowing inscription: —" Presented to Mr. Ben Davies, postmaster, by his many Porth friends as a token of esteem on his departure for Abertillery, September, 1900." Mr. Davies was warmly greeted upon rising to respond for himself and Mrs. Davies. He thanked them heartily for their kind tokens of affection and esteem. He had whilst at Porth but done his duty (cheers). Ever since he. had been in the service he had always endeavoured to be civil, heedless of rank or station (loud applause). It was truly pleasant to Mrs. Davies and himself to find their ser- vices so highly appreciated (applause). Messrs. J. T. Jones, R. G. Soott and E. Samuel, M.A., also spoke. The meeting terminated with Auld Lang Syne." THE GREAT REANO will arrive at Tonypandy Station on Sunday next at 5.45 p.m.
Tonyrefail. On Wednesday evening last, the usual monthly meeting of the Chamber of Trade was held at the Institute. Amongst other subjects discussed was the Shop Hours Act and the Chamber's forthcoming ban- quet on December 30th. A paper was read by Mr. D. R. Morgan on adver- tising. The secretary was instructed to convey to Mr. Daniel Enoch the Cham- ber's sympathy with him in his recent bereavement. It has been decided to erect an organ to the value of P,400 in St. David's Church. After much thought and dis- cussion, the officers have placed the order with Messrs. Blackett and Howden, New- castle, and we understand the osgan will be complete by St. David's Day in the early part of 1910. On Thursday last, the funeral took place of Mrs. Ann Enoch, wife of the late Henry Enoch, for 36 years of the Trebanog Inn, Trebanog. Deceased passed away on Monday at the residence of her son, Mr. Daniel Enoch, Brynawel, Ton- yrefail, with whom she had been living for some time past. Deceased, who was 86 years of age., was interred at Ainon Burial Ground, Tonyrefail. part of the service being held at the house and the remaining portions at the chapel and graveside. The officiating ministers were the Revs. D. J. Thomas, St. David's Ton- yrefail, and W. S. Jones, Llwynypia.
