Father Healy at Clydach I Vale. Address on Social Reform. The visit of Rev. Father Healy, the great social reformer, to Clydach Vale had been, looked forward to with great expectations. Large congregations assem- bled at St. Thomas', where the Father conduced three services on Sunday last and lectured on Monday evening. The leafcure, which was entitled Social Reform," was presided over by the vicar, the R4iT. W. Meredith Morris, B.A., who in his opening address said that he was fully in sympathy with the movement Father Healy had identified himself with. He (the vicar) recognised the fact that there was* a great deal of wrong in this world, which ought to be put right. Everything was upside down, and, so much as he believed in his own existence, he believed that the Church was the power and the society instituted and ordained of God to put matters right (applause). He intended throwing himself more and more into the movement of social reform and he also hoped his listeners would be prepared to go where their parish priest would lead. A tremendous amount of dirty work had to be done by somebody. He appealed to his audience not to sit with ibeir hands folded, but to throw themselves heart and soul into the move- ment (applause). The Rev. Father Healy then addressed the meeting. Commencing his lecture, he said that he had seen coming over this country a great and wonderful change, and it was with joy he had seen it coming. He was ordained 25 years ago, and at that time was sent to Middlesbrough, where he joined with what would corres- pond to-day with the Labour Party. During that 25 years a great change had taken place, and in recent years the working classes had their eyes opened, and were trying to find out why it was that the conditions of labour were so hard. In coming years, the struggle I would be an intelligent one. A large number of people did not know years ago the oause of their oppressed labour, but now that they knew the cause, they also knew the remedy. He (the Father) was glad to hear what the chairman had stated, and whatever it meant, the speaker hoped the people would stand by their parish priest. There were two thigS that his audience must try and get rid of for ever. The first was the idea that the soul was more sacred than the body. God made both: they were His creation, and they could not be sepa- rated without disastrous effects. Secondly, he could not conceive of any religion which had not a message for the national life. Bvery church ought to be working

take his place in the House of Commons and also have a seat in the Cabinet. His chief concern should be the conditions of labour throughout the country. A National Labour Exchange should be established, which would keep" a, daily register of all men who were seeking em- ployment. The National Exchange should have branches in every town, and each should be connected by telephones, thus enabling one town to communicate With another as to what labour was to be had another as to what labour was to be had and the number of men seeking it. He gave the Mercantile Mariners' Exchange as an example, and stated that it was the means of immediate employment for men fitted for that labour. It was simply suicidal, he said, to allow women, during a certain period in their lives, to be employed in industrial labour. He thought it was next to insanity, and all women during this period should be excluded from industrial life. A woman could not work in a factory and bring up a child. She had to neglect one or the other, and she ought to be ex- cluded from such labour. Boy and girl labour in our great indus- trial centres were next dealt with. A large number were employed in street trading, and thereby the nation were manufacturing casual labourers and boy hooligans, and the girls very often became prostitutes. He would like to try to put an end to these things, and have insti- tutions whereby they could be taught something to their advantage. Afforesta- tion was also touched upon, the lecturer contending that the scheme would soon pay for itself and be the means of a great deal of employment. Other matters were also touched upon, and after questions had been asked and answered, votes of thanks brought lhe meeting to a close.
The Election Smile. Speaking at the annual fat stock show of the Cowbridge and County Farmers' Club on Tuesday, Mr. D. A. Thomas, M.P. (nominated canuidate for Cardiff), said he attended the show surely in his capacity as a farmer (laughter). Mr. Brace and Mr. Lewis Morgan were wear- ing the election smile (laughter)-but he was there because of his lifelong associa- tion with agriculture and his family's long association with the ancient borough of Cowbridge. Years ago, his father ran away from the Cowbridge Grammar School and made his way back to Merthyr (laughter). His father was an agriculturist, but, thank God, he left agriculture for coal (loud laughter).
Church Bazaar at Tonypandy A two-days' bazaar was opened at the Church Hall, Tonypandy, on Wednesday afternoon by Mrs. D. A. Thomas, Llan- wern, Newport, the proceeds of which are to be devoted towards clearing the debt of JE500 which exists on the Parish Church of St. Andrew's, Llwynypia. Mrs. Thomas, who had discharged a similar function, earlier in the day at Mountain Ash, expressed the pleasure it gave her to open the bazaar, and hoped that the object aimed at would be real- ised. On the motion of the vicar (Rev. D. T. R. James), a hearty vote of thanks was accorded Mrs. Thomas for her kind- ness in consenting to open the bazaar. The vicar also announced that he had received a cablegram from Mr. Rhys Williams, Miskin Manor, who is at pre- sent at Madrid conveying a donation of E20 towards the funds. This announce- ment was received with cheers. The hall was gaily decorated with bunt- ing, and the stalls, artistically erected, were laden with useful and valuable articles. The stall-holders were as fol- low:-China Stall: Mrs. Leonard W. Llewelyn and Mrs. Dr. Williams. Fancy Stall (No. 1): Mrs. D. T. R. James and Mrs. Milburn.

Church Bazaar at Nantymoel. A two-days' bazaar in aid of the new Church of St. Paul's was opened on Wednesday, the 1st inst., at the Work- men's Hatl, Nantymoel, by the Ven. Archdeacon Edmondes, in the presence of a good assembly, including the Rev. A. J-. Edwards, M.A. (vicar), Rev. A. Lane Davies, B.A., Rev. D. Michael Evans, B.A., Rev. W. Edwards (vicar of Llandy- fodwg), Dr. D. J. Thomas, J.P., C.C., &c. The Archdeacon expressed his great pleasure in coming to Nantymoel to open the bazaar in aid of their new Church of St. Paul's, and he was most pleased to observe that since the inaugural ceremony of the foundation stone-laying, some months ago, excellent progress had been made. with what he considered a hand- some and substantial building (applause). Yet, he would urge them not to rest on their labours, for great work still re- mained to be done after the building of St. Paul's. With the co-operation of their noble vicar, who was indefatigable in his efforts to promote the advancement of the Church, St. David's Church should be enlarged, and another substantial building should be provided lower down the Valley to meet the needs of a rapidly increasing industrial community (ap- plause). tie was glad to understand that, no doubt to the evident delight of the worshinners, they would enjoy the privi- lege and pleasure of celebrating Holy Communion this Christmastide at St. Paul's. He wished them every success, and prayed that the divine blessing would ever rest on their noble work (cheers). On the motion of the Rev. A. J. Edwards (vicar), who expressed their delight as Church-workers with the Arch- deacon's kindness in coming to open their bazaar, seconded by Dr. Thomas, J.P., a most cordial vote of thanks was accorded the Archdeacon. The spacious hall had been most pro- fusely and tastefully decorated for the occasion, and the admirably arranged stalls, laden with choice and valuable articles, looked most pretty, with their attendants dressed in becoming Japanese costumes. The stalls were presided over by Mrs. Edwards (the Vicarage), Mrs. Dr. Thomas (Brynbedw), Mrs. John Adams and Mrs. Thomas Jones, Miss Dorney, Mrs. Griffiths (Cloth Hall), Mrs. Alfred Thomas and Mrs. D. J. Griffiths (Plea- sant View). A brisk trade was done at the stalls, and the reduction of the debt scheme will undoubtedly be realiped. The bazaar was to have been opened by Mr. Godfrey Williams, Conservative candidate for Mid-Glamorgan, but he was unable to attend.
Death through Sweetmeat. A "Lucky Potato Adventure. The three-year-old son (Trevor) of Mr. James Cleayer, engine-driver, New Dum- fries Street, Treorohy. died somewhat singularly on Monday last after swallow- ing a toy goat, measuring nearly half-an- inch, which he got from a "lucky potato "-a halfpenny sweetmeat. Dr. A. G. Tribe, on being informed, was soon in attendance upon the child, but failed to remove the toy, which had stuck in the throat.
Llwynypia In addition to the published arrange- ments in connection with the Mid- Rhondda Free Church special mission, the Rev. John McNeill will occupy the pulpit at Jerusalem Chapel. Llwynypia, on Sunday next, at 6 o'clock. The rev. gentleman has been conducting services at Clydach Vale during the earlier part of the week. The services have been characterised by intense religious fervour, and much good is anticipated as the result of the famous evangelist's visit.

for the national life as well as for the individual side. Proceeding, the speaker said that there was a fearful lot of dirt and rubbish that needed clearing before a start could be made. A great amount of human wreck- age. had to be cleared away before they could commence to work. At the present day there were two millions and a half of which the breadwinner was out of em- ployment. These conditions had to be set right before they could commence to build a national life. Touching upon the Poor Law Commission, the lecturer said that, unfortunately, two reports were given; the one being the majority report and the other being the report of the minority. Before they could begin to think of unemployment, a very clear dis- tinction had to be made. There were two ways of looking at it. They wanted the authorities who had the power of helping the destitute to consider their physical position. One of the -very commonest cases of sickness was that dread disease of consumption. It com- menced with a cough, and the poor person often resorted to cough mixtures and all other kinds of quack medicines, and gradually grew worse and worse. After a while, he might be fortunate enough to obtain a ticket for admission into a sanatorium for a month. From the first moment the destitute authorities could not do anything for him, and the poor sufferer had not twopence to bless him- self with. If they believed in that system of doing things, then they would throw in their lot with the majority report of the Poor Law Commission. He would not touch that system with the end of a long stick. Continuing, the speaker said it was the prevention of these things that was wanted. We want an authority," he said, that not merely begins to help a man the moment he has a cough, but an authority which has officers that are on the look-out for the least sign of a cough and the least sign of sickness that may occur, because destitution cannot be afforded at all." If they fell in with that idea, then they would throw in their lot with the minority report of the Com- mission. Father Healy then proceeded to con- demn the present system of workhouse accommodation. He condemned the place where all sorts and conditions of people were mixed un together. Old and young, and aged couples were to be seen classed together with criminals of the worst type. The workhouses were a nursery for many thousands of poor children, and in them could be found a mass of corruption. Touching upon hygiene and health, the speaker said the various health depart- ments were doing a. great amount of work bv the building of hospitals and minister- ing to a large number of destitute cases, and he suggested that there should be at least one official health visitor in every district, which would have under his or her control a number of voluntary workers. It would he a grand oppor- tunity for finding out sickness, and what- ever sickness might be found out, it could be dealt with immediately. Dealing with the old age pension scheme, the rev. gentleman said that he was con- vinced that a very large proportion of the people never reached the age to make them eligible for the pension. His idea was that the age limit should be lowered and the amount of the pension raised. He believed in a, local pension authority that would make provision for those locally. The speaker stated that he had been speaking to Mrs. Sidney Webb, who was an authority on the subject, and that lady stated that the cost of the suggested improvements in the carrying out of the various schemes would be verv little more than at present. Under the present system, a large amount of money was being; spent, and very few were getting anything. He could not imagine money better spent than when it was spent for suffering; humanity. If C4,000,000 extra- which was only the price of a couple of Dreadnoughts-were spent, they could banish from the land a great deal of present-day destitution. The speaker next put before his audi- ence a scheme by which unemployment could be banished from the land. His first proposal was that there should be a National Minister of Labour, who would
