A RACE DESTROYED BY WHITE MAN'S TREACHERY. In his article on his adventures among the Ona Indians of Tierra del Fuego in Harper's, Charles W. Furlong charges the white colonists with having wantonly destroyed this once strong race. Lese than three decades ago the primitive inhabitants, the Ona Indians, lived, hunted, and fought from Anagarda Point in Magellan Strait to Beagle Channel. Had the whole island been like the southern half, to-day the Onas, in all probability, would be in control of practically all of their original domain. Had it been like the northern half, the world would undoubtedly look upon the hunt- ing-grounds of an extinct race. As it is, within less than thirty year6 the Unas have shrunk from perhaps 3,000 to 300; and all because they possessed land the white man coveted for his sheep, and had an inborn courage and ferocity strong enough to oppose him. With the establishment of the first sheep- range, in the -early eighties, began a crap-I land persistent warfare on the part of the white man. In reprisal for the land from which he was driven, the Ona raided the range at night for the 'white guanaco,' as he called the strange animal, the sheep, which he found not. only I easily captured, but sweeter and more tender to th, taste than the wild iruanaoos or hi* isb-.nrl
Rhondda Election. Matons Great Victory Unprecedented Majority. W. Abraham (Lab.) 12436 Harold Lloyd CC.) 3471 Majority 8965 By a majority of 8,965-tlie largest majority ever recorded in the Rhondda— the Rhondda Division, in one stroke, emphasised its support of the Budget and repudiated the shadowy proposals of the Tory alternative. Tariff "Reform." The' day's poll was an exceedingly heavy one, nearly 16,000 out of a total of 17,640, or 92t per cent. of the total electorate, having recorded their votes at the booths. Polling proceeded quietly all day Friday, no marked demonstration being particu- larly visible. Both candidates made a tour of the. constituency from end to end, I uls in cars decorated with the party colours, the reds predominating. Several horsed- vehicles were also reouisitioned to brine the aged and invalided to the poll, voters in many cases being taken straight from bed to the polling booth. The candidates were greeted with warm demonstrations of friendliness from their supporters, whilst Mr. Harold Lloyd was at times subjected to some good-humoured booing. No bitterness was imparted into the con- test, which finished up in good keeping with the friendly manner in which the fight had been waged from the commence- ment. At Pentre, where, perhaps, owing to his long residence in the place, Mabon is regarded more as a popular idol than in any other part of the division, enthusiasm ran high. Polling commenced in earnest from early morning, and it is computed that 35 per cent. of the electors had dis- charged their duty before noon. This in a mining constituency, where the majo- rity of the electorate are engaged in their perilous occupations until the afternoon, is indeed a very good record. One local gentleman recorded his vote soon after the polling booth was opened, and pro- ceeded soon after to Somerset to dis- charge a similar duty there. It only needs adding that the gentleman in ques- tion is a Conservative of the deepest dye to appreciate the zeal with which he ac- quitted himself of his duties as a citizen and property owner. The children, at this as in past elec- tions, played what they undoubtedly con- sidered a most important part. Armed with banners, cards, and photos of the veteran leader, they paraded the streets from early morn till evening, and sang election ditties, and other improvisations of their fertile minds to their hearts' content. Early in the morning they were put through their drills by maturer poli- ticians, and while this was in progress, Mabon himself appeared in person, and there was a chorus of juvenile, huzzas. Smiling at this youthful demonstration, he at once took matters in hand, and using his walking-stick as a baton, lie led the nondescript choir in a stirring rendition of the Land Song. Indeed, it might be said that these youngsters were the most demonstrative partisans of the day. Any individual, no matter what his position might be, sport- ing a blue favour, was instantly "spotted," and was given a warm time. When a counter-band—small in number, it is true —made its appearance wearing Tory badges, there was an immediate" set-to," and matters were only restored to their usual placidity when the "Blues" had retired from the field vanquished and their precious tokens stamped underfoot in the mud. This treatment was not reserved for favours either « parcel of literature thrown out from a blue car on its way up the Valley was instantly trodden upon. This, perhaps, is after all the. sanest and most convenient method of dealing with Tory misstatements! A huge crowd assembled outside the Council Offices, Pentre, at night to await the declaration of the result. Although it was a certainty that there was only one man in i," considerable interest was evinced as to what would be the actual majority. Bets were freely given and taken that Mabon's majority would ex- ceed that of 1900'—the last contested election in the division—while some sport- ing adherents of the Tory cause made bets that Mabon's majority would not exceed the total number of votes given to his opponent. These were eagerly taken up. and it is safe to compute that scores of pounds changed hands that night. After the. declaration of the result about 1.30 in the early morning of Satur- day, both candidates made brief speeches. The tremendous crowd of many thousands who had waited patiently and orderly since about 11 o'clock, listened intently to the successful veteran's speech, in which he thanked the whole of his sup- porters. He, hoped that his opponents would assist in closing up the ranks of the working men following their old commander-m-chief. He congratulated his opponent upon his gentlemanly con- duct and brave fight against odds, and felt certain that his experience in the Rhondda would be of lasting benefit. Mr. Harold Lloyd was given a good hearing also. He thanked those people who had voted for him in the Tory I interest, and felt grateful to his oppo- nents for the splendid hearing and rair- play accorded him in every part of the I Valley. He admitted that the fight had resulted in a clean knockout" for the Conservative candidate in the Rhondda. He finally wished his old opponent all success in the future, and deemed it an honour and privilege to have contested the seat of such a worthy gentleman as Mabon. The successful candidate was escorted home by hundreds of his supporters, and in response to numerous appeals, made another speech near his home. The mag- nificent result was an excellent reply for the leaders' demands of an increased majority. The previous majority was well over 6,000; since that time the electorate has increased by over 3,000, two-thirds of which ought to vote Liberal. Thus a majority of 8,000 was forecasted by numerous persons in Pentre, although Conservatives estimated their candidate as good value for at least 6,000, and ex- pected a reduced majority. The Conservatives can expect Welshmen to stick to their principles generally. There is very little of the wavering which is evident in England. The character of solidity of purpose, clear and cool think- ing usually ascribed to the. Englishman, is not correct at election time; and the Celtic temperament seems to be under perfect control at such periods of stress. The editor of "Justice must surely feel uneasy. Several expressions of discontent were heard on Friday and Saturday because ( polling clerks and presiding officers at the election booths were persons either out of the Rhondda district, or earning substan- tial incomes of £ 200 per annum, &c., while there are many experienced clerks in the Rhondda who would have been only too glad of the opportunity to earn a few extra shillings. The long time taken to count the votes was another cause of complaint. As a rule we are accustomed to quicker work than this in the Rhondda. Outside Our Office. A crowd numbering about 3,000 awaited the result outside our offices, and when the figures were announced about 1.30, there was a shout that shook the hills. The cheers were repeated as the photo- graoh of the victor was thrown on the screen, which were renewed again and again as several humorous cartoons drawn by a member of our staff were projected. A picture of the Tory candidate evoked loud booing, intermingled with faint cheers. Guns began to boom immediately after, telling the story of the wondrous triumph to the still night. Ferndale Rejoicings. Nowhere was the result of Friday's I polling more eagerly waited tor than at Ferndale, where during the earlier part of the week Mabon was welcomed with something like a triumphal procession, headed by torch bearers and the Fern- dale Prize Band. Large crowds had gathered early in the evening near the Conservative Club, and lively scenes were witnessed. After remaining here for some time, the crowd was informed that the result would be. made known from the Co- operative Society windows, and thither they repaired at once. About half an hour later, when the figures were de- clared, there was a roar of triumph at the handsome victory secured by Mabon. Women Turn Out in Red Shawls. Election day proved a huge success at Cwmparc in every sense, for a "sleety" morning gave way to a fine afternoon, excitement ran high during the day, the village practically was painted red," and finally Mabon, the popular favourite, I":t in spite of increasing avoirdupois and the handicap of "age," breasted the tape, figuratively speaking, with miles to spare. Lieutenant Howell John was early at his post at the booth, and a host of trusty henchmen were ready in servile attend- ance to his slightest beck aid call. A multitude of highly coloured cartoons placarded the vicinity of the schools, and even the school children were. versed in the benefits. of Free Trade, the iniquities of the Peers, and the excellences of Lloyd George and his Budget. The nightmen were not slow to realise how important it was to vote early, and the tardy ones were soon routed from favourite haunts and even from the arms of Morpheus by intrepid canvassers to vote for Labour and Liberty. There were amateur Jehus who performed risky and mysterious evolutions with horseflesh in traps, pene- trating even to the fastnesses of Blaeny- cwm and Heolfach to return triumphant with precious votes. Friend Bumford, at his post with the register in the draughty school lobby, worked with inspiriting ,zeal and it was a base trick served upon him when, snatching a hard-earned lunch, his flaunting red rosette mysteriously dis- appeared from his overcoat. (0! the pathos of that unavailing search for the bit of colour—and the baby's tie-up, too!!) Verily, vengeance shall yet overtake that base and recreant knight of the quill! Verily, vengeance shall yet overtake that base and recreant knight of the quill! Mabon. beaming with hope and pride, and resplendent in a big motor-car, paid his devoirs to the village electors at 2 o'clock, and &is run through was made. to unending isalvos of school children's shouts and home-goinsr miners' Huzzas." The women-folk of C'wmdare turned out en masse in red shawls, to such effect that the car stopped, and Mabon gave them acknowledgment in words. The number polled in Cwmparc was very few short of the possibles. One of the crowning meetings of Mr. Wm. Abraham's campaign was held at Libanus Chapel, Treherbert, on Thursday evening—the eve of the election. The meeting lasted for over four hours; and during the whole of that time, the edifice (one of the largest in the Valley) was completely packed with people of both sexes. Mr. Varker presided. The excite- ment and enthusiasm of the vast audi- ence was kept at boiling point by the stirring speeches of Councillors Tom Harris and David Smith. Tylorstown; Rev. Rowland Hughes, Tylorstown; Mr. Moses Jones, chairman of the Pontypridd Council; and Mr. T. Marcly Jones, Mardy. Mr. D. Watts Morgan, who entered by a side door, declared that he had been sent as a messenger to say that Mabon was on the way (loud cheers). When Mabon eventually entered the building, the entire audience rose to its feet and a roar of cheering was con- tinued for fully a minute, intermingled with cries of "Good old Mabon!" The cheering broke out afresh when the. popu- lar candidate rose to speak. He was full of gratitude to them. He wanted to say that there was no candidate asking for the suffrage. of the people who had such an army of willing friends and helpers around him as old Mabon (cheers). And it was that which comforted him more than anything when he thought that he would be unable to go round the whole of his constituency on the eve of the battle (cheers). Mabon was confident. He had confidence in his people in the Rhonddas. He did not know what would become of the other candidate. It ap- peared to him (Mabon) that his co-candi- date had been very lonely in the Rhttldda -(Iaugliter)-and Mabon prophesied that at 2.30 on Saturday morning Mr. Lloyd would be able to say. I'm the remains (renewed laughter). After dealing with the political »situation, Mabon made a rousing appeal to the audience, and ended his address amidst thunderous applause. A large crowd gathered in the. street out- side, and Mr. Abraham was cheered to the echo as he drove off in a motor-car. Other rousing meetings were held on the eve. of the poll at Pentre, Tonypandy, Ynyshir, &c. At the first-named meeting, over which the Rev. D. Davies presided, a trenchant speech on the political situa- tion was delivered by Alderman T. J. Hughes, Bridgend. I
Musicai Success. We are pleased to announce the suc- cess of Master Henry Draisey, of Watts- town, at the recent examinations in music of the Associated Board of the Royal Academy and Royal College of Music. Master Draisey has in the past three years gained six certificates in pianoforte playing, and has won two with Honours, the last examination being the final set by the Associated Board. He will now receive a special certificate in February. Master Draisey is very young to have gained a certificate of such value, and there is no doubt that with continued hard work he will soar to greater heights. Credit is also due to his teacher, Prof. T. D. Edwards. A.R.C.M., of Treharris (formerly of Perth).
South Glamorgan Contest. Mabon's Homely Illustration. French and English Loaves Compared. A crowded and enthusiastic meeting was held at Nazareth. Williamstown, oil Monday night last in support of the can- didature of Mr. Wm. Brace for South Glamorgan, which was presided over by Mr. J. Rees, Williamstown. The speakers were Mr. W. Abraham (Mabon), M.P., Dr. R. D. Chalke, M.A. in the absence of Mr. Edgar Jones, M.A., M.P.), Coun- cillors R. S. Griffiths and Tom Evans. Mabon, in dealing with Tariff Reform, gave a very lucid illustration of what would happen if bread were taxed. Describing the collier's home, he said that the collier ate bread for every meal of the day, and that if it was taxed, it would be the hardest thing in the world for the working man to procure a living. Mabon finished up with the question: Who are to rule—Peers or the People?" which was answered in a t,remelldous shout of People." Mabon, in his illustrations, had a good healthy-looking English loaf, which he compared to a •'puny French loaf, saying that if we had Protection, the small loaf is what we would have to expect instead of the larger loaf for the same. price. The Chairman then explained that Mr. Edgar Jones was unable to attend owing to the people of North Wales keeping him there, and called upon Dr. Chalke, of Forth, to speak in his absence. Dr. Chalke said that it was the first time in the history of England that a man, brave and brilliant enough to tackle the land question, had been found, and that man. was Mr. Lloyd George, a Welsh- man (cheers). He had seen that a few privileged men were reaping huge for- tunes through the work of the toilers. The country was in need of money, and the Chancellor brought in a, Budget to get it from the men who had the money and who got it from the working classes. These men (the Lords) had thrown out the Budget, saying, We- will appeal to the people," and the people were show- ing them that they wanted the Budget.. The people also wanted to do away with the Lords, but not in the bloodthirsty manner in which France did it. All the Britisher had to do was to put a cross (in the right place.) on a piece of paper. This would put an end to being ruled by men who happened to be the eldest sons of their fathers. The speaker .then explained the process of being ruled by an here- ditary House of Lords. A certain lord's eldest son was an imbecile, who in time became a member of the House of Lords. He had to be taken there by a keeper, and mostly went to sleep. On one parti- cular occasion, when the Lords were going to the lobby to vote on one of the educa- tion questions, they roused him from his sleep and told him he must come to vote. He became obstinate, and his keeper was sent for, but with no effect. At last, the keeper, remembering the most noble lord was very fond of jujubes, produced one, held it in front of his master's nose, and then retreated slowly towards the lobby, the most noble lord following just as a hungry donkey would when a carrot is held in front of his nose. In this way he was induced to vote. The people/' said the speaker, are not content to be ruled by Lord Jujubes or any of his kind. That is the sort that threw the Budget out." When the Liberals came into power, there was a debt of t250 000.000 staring them in the face, after the Boer War. £ 47,000,000 of this had been paid off whilst they were in power. But they wanted more money, and when the Chan- cellor introduced a. Budget putting a fair tax on the Lords (which had never been imposed before) to get it without taxing the working man's food, they called him a robber. London, with its toiling mil- lions, wras owned by seven men, and these toilers had to work, almost in hunger and want, to make the seven men richer. God had given us the land to supply us all, and not to make a few privileged men richer every day. This Budget had been brought in by a man who knew what a working man's pantry was, and his wants, from experi- ence. What now stood in the path was the House of Lords, and the people must sweep away its veto. If not, the Budget would be thrown and Tariff Reform substituted.

Election Campaign. Conservative Candidate at Qgmore Vale. Mr. Godfrey H. Williams, the Conser- vative candidate for Mid-Glamorgan, "addressed a crowded meeting of electors at the Aber School last Friday night- The chair was taken by Mr. Walter Moss, who was supported by Mr. Campbell J aim- stone, London, and Mr. Morgan James, B.A., Aberystwyth. The meeting was first addressed, by Mr. Johnstone, who received an appreciative hearing. Speaking on Tariff Reform, he said that England had forfeited her once proud title of The Workshop of the. World." Quoting figures, he showed that by a, system of tariffs Germany and the United States had increased tkeir trade by millions during the past few years. By a similar system England would recover her lost trade. He next went ori. with the question whether the consumer or the producer pays the tax. In the case of a manufactured article, which could be manufactured in this country, cpming into this country from abroad, it was the producer who paid the tax to get into our home market. Under the present system the foreigner can send manu- factured goods into this country and undersell us. Protection would ensure the security of the home market against dumping. Mr. Johnstone went on with the question of food taxes, and said that the imposition of a tax on foodstuffs could not raise the price, A 2ao duty per quarter on foreign wheat would mean less than id. rise in the of a 4-Ib. loaf. Besides, by allowing Colonialwhea,t to come in duty free, the Goloriiee would be encouraged to develop tkeir wheat lands. Canada alone Mould in time be able to produce all the wheat we would require. The meeting was next addressed' by the candidate, who spoke first on ifcaijehold enfranchisement, which he considered would be an excellent thing for the workers of this country. It: would have the effect of bringing the people back to* the land and of reviving the agricul- tural industry of the country. He next went on with the question ot education, and compared the, attitude of faet Welsh members with that of the Irish, Wales was losing £ 16,000 in grants whiefc. ought- to go to the Intermediate Schools* The Welsh Colleges were entitled to ft geant of £ 18,000, but the Wel&k members meekly accepted £ 15,000. Wfiatt Wales wanted was men who would work heart and soul for what Wales was ootitted to. Sixteen Welsh members had fead tumours conferred upon them, and it feeeated they were seeking first their own personal aggrandisement and not the iatereBte of their country. Mr. Williams aexá went on to the question of Tariff Reform, which, he said, was the oio. proposal before the country to deal with wages and unemployment. Trades Uniowi could raise wages, but had no safeguard what- ever against unemployment. Tariff Reform would benefit the workers of this country, and especially coal miners, in. many ways. They were told that the tax was paid by the consumer. Such, he admitted, was the case, if the foreign article oould not be manufactured in this country. If the article could be manufactured i* this country, the tax M'ould be paid by the. producer, in order to compete witb our home-made article. In reply to a question. the candidate said he was in favour of such a solution to the religious education question as would not violate the religious convic- tions of the children's parents. Many other questions were asked. On the chairman's rising to propose a vote of thanks to the speakers, a section of the audience broke but into enthu- siastic cheers for Sir S. T. Brans, the Liberal candidate.
A Nurse Praises Zgmbuk. AN IDEAL SOOTHER AND HEALER FOR ECZEMA, CUTS, BURNS, AND BABY'S SORES." The unique skin-healing powers of Zam- Buk have won warm praise from many doctors and nurses, who use it in their daily practice. I Nurse N. Grimaldi, of 114, Victoria Avenue, St. Helen's, Hastings, writes:- I have used Zam-Buk and Zam-Buk Medicinal Soap in my professional work with results that have quite astonished me. I make a special study of children's complaints, and my experience with Zam- BUK for cuts, burns, bruises, and sores and rashes proves it to be an ideal dressing. Zam-Buk alleviates pain very quickly (which is so necessary with children), and soothes while it heals. Zam-Buk Medi- cinal Soap, too, is especially suitable for children's tender skins. In a bad case of eczema, where all ointments had failed to even give relief, Zam-Buk soothed the patient at once, and by perseverance this severe eczema was cured completely. A girl patient so suffered with a badly sprained knee that she despaired of ever being free from pain. After a little massaging i ith Zam-Buk, "however, she was soon able to walk about again freely. A personal experience of my own with Zam-Buk is instructive. I cut the top of my thumb. The injury was so severe that I quite expected to have my hand useless for months. Zam-Buk, however, not only stopped the pain immediately, but healed the thumb very rapidly." ^am-Buk's unique and ever-ready char- acter, its "keeping" quality, its wide range of usefulness, and its greater effi- ciency, which doctors and nurses daily admit, explain why a box of this precious balm is to-day kept handy in thousands of homes, and considered indispensable by thousands of outdoor workers.

At Ystrad Police Court on Monday, Police Inspector Edwards reported to the Bench that on the day of the Rhondda. election he visited the polling booths, and did not find a single instance of a person being under the influence of drink. Regarding public-houses, there were few people inside them at all. Mr. T. Pascoe Jenkins (presiding magistrate) said that he and his colleagues were very glad to hear such a favourable report. He had personally moved about the constituency, and had never in the whole of his experience seen anything more orderly. Alderman E. H. Davies said that among the thousands who assembled out- side the Council Offices at Pentre while the votes were being counted, he did not notice anyone under the influence of drink. Inspector Edwards: We did not have i a charge of the kind throughout the day. The Chairman: That is most satis- factory.
