EDITORIAL NOTES. The election of Mabon, the veteran of many years' standing, was received with the jubilation it deserved on Saturday morning. It was a magnificent victory and the result must have been extremely disappointing to the exponents of Tariff Reform. The Rhondda people, however, were not taken off the main issue. The Rhondda intelligence fixed the reasons on the right spot, and that spot undoubtedly was the increasing arrogant assumption of the House of Lords to interpose dicta- tion upon the people in the matter of the Budget Bill. The party which had sent Mr. Harold Lloyd tried its best to mix up the issues. All sorts of side-tracking questions were trotted out in the way Mr. Balfour has given the lead, but it failed hopelessly in the Welsh con- stituencies, and the tactics were parti- cularly scornfully trounced in the mining districts. The Rhondda miners had already had a taste of what follows the imposition of a tax upon its staple indus- try—coal. When it was taxed, there followed here less work and a lowering of wages. Once bit twice shy is an old saying, but it was the settling, of Mr. Harold Lloyd. The miners, too, are accustomed to meet in the Federation atmosphere, and the. pros and cons of questions are there dealt with in a manner which means that the Federationist knows how to assess the merits of any new policy and principle. Again, in the Rhondda, no intimidation is possible. The miners, in their past history, have made this fact of freedom absolutely their own. They have dared much in the past, and through it have, conquered terrors of tyranny which/ unfortunately still re- main in the agricultural districts. But apart from even principles of legislation, Mabon is a cherished personality in the Rhondda. It is a name by its sheer weight which will carry the miners. The English miners believe in him, and the Welsh miners glory in his splendid powers of handling their delicate questions and make them issue in peace and progress. The Tory Party can depart in peace, the Rhondda is a stronghold which can laugh at attacks of outside candidates that lack the distinctive possessions which make for a policy of a better life and living for the working masses, because in Mabon we have veritably a Saul among the prophets. Next to the glorious victory of Mabon, that of Mr. Edgar Jones in the Merthyr Boroughs came with universal acceptation. The pride of country and nationality among the people is still a living force. We may have thought that Aberdare and Merthyr had set it aside, for the late member, Mr. D. A. Thomas, though one of the ablest of men, particularly in the realm of finance and commerce, was not distinguished for any over-zeal for Welsh Nationalism in its personal phases. He never pronounced this aspiration of the Cymro with any marked degree of enthu- siasm, and the result was that the feeling which Henry Richard roused in 1868 had damped down so much as to be a prac- tical absentee in the constituency. Mr. Edgar Jones awakened this long-dormant Nationalism, and as a Nationalist more than anything else he carried everything before him. The music of the old lan- guage from the lips of the political candi- date, wedded as it was to the enunciation of the principles of the New Liberalism which is the Lloyd-Georgian politics, car- ried everything triumphantly. No can- didate had such magnificent receptions. Whe,rever Mr. Jones' meetingis were held in the large centres of Aberdare, Merthyr and Dowlais, or in the 'outlying districts, the Pan-ie Welsh fervour and enthusiasm were to be found. We heartily congratu- late our young Rhondda resident upon this fine attainment at his early age. For the son of a Rhondda. cottage to achieve such a, distinction without wealth or any other patronage but the innate gifts of natural possession, it is indeed a remark- able success. His victory was received at the declaration of the poll with the wildest feelings of satisfaction, and no one heard a hostile voice when his name appeared as the first favourite of the great electoral mass of voters in the Merthyr Boroughs, There is no doubt that Merthyr should lead Wales in.Its.best ideals, and in its generous support of Mr. Edgar Jones it showed that it means to claim the prece- dence again. One word should again be said for the noble feeling of the Watts- town workmen. They took Mr. Edgar Jones under their paternal care, and they acted with that unity and generosity which will always remain a cherished incident in the history of the, General Election of 1910 "Bravo, Brace!" is a thoroughly deserved cry. For the second time, he has demonstrated that South Glamorgan has now become a Liberal and Labour seat. A majority of 4,201 over a popular candidate like Mr. Lewis Morgan—ex- Lord Mayor of Oardiff-means that geniality and sweetness of personality has had the go-by in South Glamorgan again, and rightly so. It is measures and not men should be the standard for decid- ing matters in a Parliamentary fight of the epoch significance of the present one. No amount of nice, men can cover the arrogance of the House of Lords and the presumption of King Balfour. The people of the hills are sturdy, independent folks, and it is a remarkable fact that- through- and it is a, remarkable fact that- through- out the geographical area or the present battle the hill-men are the stalwarts who stand no nonsense from the landlordage, beerage and squirage of the country. John Jones in Wales, like Joha Bull" and "Sandy" of the industrial centres, have not only courage, but intelli- gence to know and realise that this fight IS a fight of Peonle versus the Peers. The majorities in Wales are. remarkable, too. We know that wherever possible, and where the parson could prejudice matters, the Church has had its election coteries to defeat the candidates pledged to the work of settling the autocracy of the House of Lords. Of course, we know why. The arrest of Disestablishment of the Church in Wales lies with the House of Lords, but such plans are poor mops to sweep the incoming tide. The House of Lords must go. The veto which has been exercised with such shameful partiality by the House of Lords for the last 41 years has outlasted every demo- cratic patience. The Lords-land and liquor—have plenty of money. That is not denied and they spend freely enough to uphold their monopolies, but though they can bribe the 'Hodges" of the county area, they pour money in vain against the hill-men of the mining dis- tric'ts.

We shall trust you in this great, fight of changing the intolerable landlord rule to that of the people's rule.

Sir,—With reference to the recent correspondence on the above in your columns, I find that statements are being circulated locally that I have had to pay certain costs in the threatened libel action. I shall be glad if you will allow me to give this an emphatic denial. I have not paid, nor have I agreed to pay, anything whatsoever. I trust that those responsible for these statements will now cease spreading this fiction. Thanking vou.—I am, &c., Clydach Vale, S. B. JOHN. January 26th, 1910.
Welcomed in Tonypandy. What could be more welcome in Tony- pandy than open-hearted statements like the following? Week after week, Tony- pandy men and women speak out in this earnest way; and their personal experi- ences ring with encouragement. Mrs. A. Evans, of 2. Cross Road, Ely Street, Tonypandy, says —" A cold, which affected my kidneys, was the cause of my back giving out some months ago. I had bad pains right across the small of the back, and was scarcely able to do my work about the house because of them. Sometimes I could hardly get up after stooping, and now and again I was obliged to sit down and rest until the pain got easier. I was also subject to bad attacks of giddiness, and there were specks floating before my eyes. I derived so much benefit from the first box of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills that I got another one, and when I had taken that I was better. What is more, I have not been bothered since. I am able to do my work without pain, and am free from the dizziness and the specks before my eyes. "I have no objection to these facts being published. (Signed) Annie Evans." Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are two shillings and ninepence per box, or six boxes for thirteen shillings and ninepence. Of all chemists and stores, or post free direct from the Foster-McClellan Co., 8, Wells Street, Oxford Street, London, W. Be sure you get the same kind of pills as Mrs. Evans had. 4905j
Pavilion Skating Rink, Tonypandy Mr. J. Owen, Jones, Tonypandy (chair- man of the Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade), performed the opening ceremony of the Express Roller Skating Rink, Tony- pandy, on Friday night last. Mr. Jones, who performed the ceremony in the un- avoidable absence of Mr. Leonard W. Llewelyn, referred to the fact that they had always claimed Tonypandy as the metropolis of the Rhondda, and the erec- tion of the new Skating Rink went far to substantiate their claim (hear; hear). No expense had been spared in its construc- tion, nor would any future expense be a bar to making everything as perfect as possible for the welfare of their patrons, and he trusted that the Mid-Rhondda public would show their appreciation of the promoters' enterprise and courtesy by extending to them a good share of their patronage (applause). The attendance of spectators was very great, the rink having to be cleared twice, whilst a large number of skaters enjoyed them- selves on the wheels until a late hour. Exhibitions of roller skating were, given by experts, which were greatly appre- ciated. During the week the rink has been well patronised by enthusiasts, who never enjoy themselves better than when rinking." Many of these are improving themselves in readiness for the grand carnival which will take place on Feb, 3rd,
Olympia Skating Rink, Pentre. There can be no doubt that rinking has become the fashionable art at Pentre, if the number of patrons attending the Olympia each evening count for anything. To not to rink is evidently to be out of the swim of things entirely, whilst to pos- sess the requisite knowledge of how to gyrate around your nearest neighbours and to maintain your equilibrium at the same time with a degree of comfort is to possess the key to a frame of mind which even Aladdin's lamp would fall short of. Seriously speaking, rinking has come and has conquered, and its victims may—even within the circumscribed limits of the Rhondda-be counted by the hun- dreds. The pastime undoubtedly has a hold on its votaries which no modern craze ever attained to. It is exciting to a degree, brings the crimson flush to one's face, and there are compensations even where there are falls. To the old hand," however, mishaps of the latter kind are few indeed, and the novitiate, after a few preliminary encounters with the maple floor, and with the kindly assist- ance of an instructor, generally manages to make a good show. This assistance is not wanting at the Olympia, where Mr. Studd, the genial manager, and his assis- tants are assiduous in their attention to their clients. Selections by a well-chosen set of instrumentalists add pleasure to the proceedings. A dance at the above Rink has been arranged by the Hockey Club on Friday, February 4th. A more suitable place for trippers on the light fantastio toe" would be hard to find.

Hockey. TREORCHY v. PENTRE. The fourth match of iha season was played at Treorchy on S&tarday after- noon, the ground being i-athe-r- hard and slipnery owing to severe frost. Previous matches had resulted in two wins for Tre- orchy and one drawn game, so- that Pentre felt anxious to register at least a substan- tial win. The game was keen, tod fast, and played in a much better spirit than previous games. The referees' duties on this occasion were fairly light. The score of one goal by Pentre about half- way through the first half of the game indicated their slight superiority. In the second period Pentre attacked nearly the whole time, the forwards combining well and being well served by thsir half-backs. Occasional bursts by the Treorchy for- wards were well stopped by the iPentre backs. Shore, Gregory and Ferry, The whistle finally blew with the score 4-0 in favour of Pentre, each score justly and fairly obtained. Messrs, D. Thomas (Pentre) and Lea (Treorcliy) gave satis- faction to both sides as referees. A keen game was witnessed on Friday afternoon at the school ground of Porth Higher Elementary School, the con- testants being girls from Pentre and POrth. Higher Grade Schools. The home captain was fortunate in winning the toss, and elected to play up the slope. The first half of the game wm fairly even, although the homesters were clearly superior in combined play and displayed a better knowledge, of the various. phases. of play. A brilliant burst by the centre forward, Blodwen Jtlees, resulted in an excellent goal. The centre half for Porth, Bessie Jones, deserves spe-cial mention. A short interval at half-time was followed by a rather one-sided game, the home defence beino' untroubled, good centres by right and left wings were frequently observed, and the half-backs nobly assisted in converging all attacks upon the goal. The score of four goals in this period was. well deserved, the scorers being Blodwen Rees (2) and Ellen Richards (2), each score being contributed to by both for- wards and halves. The final result of five goals to nil just about represented the superiority of the homestens. The duties. of referees were discharged by Messrs. J. T. Short (Pentre) and IX Thomas (Porth). After the mat-oh; the visitors were entertained to tea.
Experiments with *a Weii-ikrcown Cough Cure. BY A LONDON SCIENTIST, Chas. Hyatt-Woolf, Biq., F.R.P.S., F.R.S.L., Editor of Popular Science Sittings, writes as follows in his new book, Truths about things we live on and daily -use Witli s, view to di covering a form of medicine needed to diminish congestion, aid expectoration, and soothe the respiratory track, I ex- perimented in the laboratory with Veno's Lightning Cough Cure and applied it in practice. I found this remedy contained a, variety of matters capable of affording relief in all those cases whore coughing is a symptom. Not only this, but it is a, distinct nerve sedative and tonic, and is not only applicable with advantage in cases of bronchial coughs, but also for stomach coughs. It would likewise have a certain value in consumption, it showed distinct ability to abate feverish symp- toms, and in all cases to which I applied it, the influence of Verio's Lightning Cough Cure was most marked. This Cough Cure is very nicely compounded, so much so that it is even pleasant to take, its delightful flavour commending it to the most fastidious natient. It con- tains no opiate or anything that could effect harm." Take Veno's Lightning Cough Cure for all diseases of chest, throat and lungs in- young or old.

Mission Services at Liwynypia. The annual mission services, in connec- tion with Jerusalem Chapel, Llwynypia, are being held throughout the present week. Eloquent sermons are being delivered nightly by the special missioners, the Revs. R. B. Jones, Porth; W. W. Lewis, Swansea; W. Hill, Maesteg, and others. The services are well attended and a high' spiritual tone prevails. Solos are Tendered each evening by Miss M. L. Williams, of New Tredegar. The services of Mr. Conwil Evans. Carmarthen, have been secured for Saturday and Sunday next.
Ynyshir Winding Mishap. An alarming winding accident occurred at the Lady Lewis Colliery. Ynyshir, owned by the Lewis Merthyr Consolidated Company, on Sunday, resulting in injuries to a fireman named John Evans, and severely shaking two men named Escotte and Price. It annears that the workmen had been engaged in carrying out certain repairs in the mine, and were being brought to the surface, when the cage was taken up to the sheaves. The rope parted, but fortu- nately the safety-catch acted and held the bond suspended over the shaft. The violence of the impact threw the miners to the bottom of the cage, and Evans, falling on a number of jtools, frac- tured his thigh and sustained a nasty cut over the eye.
Concert at Cwmparc A successful concert was held at Park Hall on Saturday evening last. under the auspices of Mr. Wm. Butler's male and mixed choirs. Mr. John Thomas, A.C., was in the chair. A good programme of music was submitted, to which Miss May Middleton. Miss Sally Jones', Mrs. Iorwerth Davies, Miss Maggie Williams, Miss Sally George, and Messrs. Evan Jones (R.W.M.C,.), J. Pugh and David Williams contributed. Mr. Butler's male voice party sang Gwyr Philistia," and the mixed choir Ar lan'r Ilorddonen and The Radiant Morn" in splendid style. Miss M. E. Breeze and Mr. Gwilym Jones presided at the piano.
