Coalowner on Tariff. Exposure of Protectionist Fallacies. A telling exposure of the fallacies of Tariff" Reform" was delivered by the well-known ooalowner, Mr. Henry Lewis, rynant, Cardiff, at a meeting in support of tne candidature of Mr. Wm. Brace for South Glamorgan, at Oymmer on Monday evening. Talking of Tariff Reform, said Mr. r^inded him of a chairman of a lariff Reform meeting, who declared that .c.- P ff ron .1.1<:1 vyiai m lavour or iramo Keform (laughter). It was true that cyclists and Motorists monopolised country roads, and IP this connection it might be urged that •traffic Reform was desirable. There Sas a lot of talk of Tariff Traffic, but J-ramc Reform was not among the things advocated just at present. T of the arguments advocated for Aaritt Reform, continued the speaker, 'wii -ft countries taxed the foreigner, nff •' foreigners choose to manage their «r!a>rs their own detriment, that was why we should follow suit (hear, <m^ii x Balfour had declared that a +v.«T ■ x °n wheat would tend to lower was *+ £ Ce of bread (ironical laughter). This TT „ ttle gentleman who denounced Mr. ?? a "frigid and calculated liar," a 8 Balfour's) declaration that i wheat would cheapen the cost of loaf was nothing but a frigid and alculated lie (loud applause). He (Mr. rnv!W sent coal to all parts of the world. i e other day he sold coal to a Russian nrm, who had to pay a tax of 7s. on every ton imported. He sold coal at the same price to an English firm. Who paid the tax? It was those who consumed it in Russia, and coal in Russia. was the next essential to food. The same thing applied to Germany, and every other pro- tected country, and if Protection were adopted in this country we would have to pay the taxes. There was no reason to believe that we would obtain our commo- dities cheaper than other countries. If a, tax were put on the things we required, the duty would have to be paid by us. Another Tariffist argument was that a tax on imports would stop dumping, and this would mean more employment. Allow me," said the speaker, to give you a few facts about the system of inter- national exchange—that is, the exchange of goods that takes place between one nation and another. This, of course, is done with the surplus goods. We manu- facture four times as much cotton as we require for our own use. Three-parts, therefore, go abroad in exchange for the commodities we require—commodities which, to the countries we deal with, is a surplus stock. So you see, the exchange is beneficial to each party." What this country wanted was gold. We could not produce it, and we were therefore com- pelled to get it from abroad. It would be foolish to send gold in payment of goods, as we required it ourselves. If we purchased 50 millions worth of goods, we exported a corresponding amount in ex- change for same. Taxing the foreigner would mean that the consumer would have to pay the imposition. Tariff Reformers insisted that foreign steel bars coming into this country should be taxed. For every bar that came into this country, it was paid for in the shape of tin. If they stopped the importation of steel bars, tin- plate workers would be thrown out of employment. Again, if they taxed the imported commodity, home prices would rise accordingly, and the poor would have to pay. If foreign meat were taxed a penny in the lb., the home dealer would increase his prices by 2d. or 3d. in the lb. In America, the prevailing system was to sell cheaper to the foreigner than to their own people. American meat sold in this country at 6d. per lb. was there charged 10d., with the result that 10,000 had sworn not to touch meat for a month (Iaughter and applause).

Miss Amy Evans at the Savoy. Everything comes to he who waits, and equally applicable is this old axiom to Tonypandy, for at last it has produced a prima donna, yes! the real thing. And it was to pay homage to this prima donna that a small band (numbering about 50) of Tonypandians made their way on Thursday last to the Savoy Theatre, London. As_ everyone well knows, Miss Amy Evans is the lady in question—the young Welsh singer who has scored such a tremendous success at the Savoy Theatre in the Gilbert-German opera, Fallen Fairies." The little party commenced their 160 mile trip at one o'clock from the G.W.R. station, Penygraig, where Mr. Brereton had been extremely success- ful in his efforts to provide, the party every possible facility. En route, dinner was excellently and tastefully served under the watchful supervision of Mr. G. Thatcher, chief steward, and was greatly appreciated. Subsequently much fun was had in the form of an election as to who was to have the honour of interviewing Miss Evans after the performance, but at the crucial moment the election was entirely forgotten in the party's eager- ness to congratulate Miss Evans. During the performance a very handsome bouquet was presented to Miss Aniy,Evans on behalf of the party. The beautiful floral tribute was composed of choice, exotics, including orchids, lilies of the valley, carnations, maidenhair ferns, &c., and was supplied by Mr. W. Treseder, norist, Cardiff. The expense attaching to the bouquet was borne by almost every mem- ber of the party, and the card attached thereto contained the following inscrip- tion —To Amy Evans, Savoy Theatre, London.—From your friends of childhood days, old neighbours and admirers. With sincere good wishes. Tonypandy, January 20-th, 1910. During the course of the evening, Miss Evans had a most enthusiastic reception, and was recalled time after time. So great was the applause that she was un- able to leave the stage until she had twice re-sung her principal song, Oh, love that rulest in our land." Perhaps 'the highest honour to her talents was to be found in the presence of many musical celebrities of London. Mr. Percy Pitt, director of Cbvent Garden Opera; Madame Kirkby Lunn, and Mr. Robert Newman were only a few of the famous people in the boxes. The Tonypandy pilgrims, all highlv delighted with what they had heard and seen, left Paddington at one o'clock, par- taking of an enjoyable supper on the way. The party, included the following: —Mr. J. Owen JOlles (chairman of the Chamber of Trade), Mr. Llewellyn Evans (vice-chairman), Mr. John Uees (secretary of Chamber of Trade and organiser of the party), Mrs. J. Owen Jones, Mrs. Llew- ellyn Evans, Mrs. John Rees, Mr. and Mrs. James. Davies, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Rees, Mr. and Mrs. David Jenkins, M.B.G., Mr. and Mrs. John Mortran (Radyr), Mr. and Mrs. David Lloyd (Mr. Lloyd was Miss Amy Evans' wst. music teacher), Mr. and Mrs. Thomas (Stead and Simpson), Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Richards, M.B.G., Mr. and Mrs. John Davies (chemist), Mr. E. J. Stockwell, Mr. Emrys Richards (chemist), Mr. Willie Richards, Mr. G. W. Richards (" Rhondda Leader"), Mrs. Hammond, Penrhiwfer and Miss Hammond. Mrs. Twissell, Mrs. Macann, Miss Bessie Williams, Nurse Stephens, Mrs. Thomas (Post Office). Miss S. Thomas (Post Office), Messrs. George and Jack Thomas (Post Office), Miss Madge Evans, Miss M. J. Watkins, Mr. Fred Thomas (butcher), Mrs. John Morgan (butcher), Mrs. Arthur Morgan (butcher), Mrs. 0. S. Evans, Miss A. Davies (Fair- field), Mr. C. Sullivan, Mr. G. Carver, Messrs. David and John Evans and Miss Agnes Evans (brothers and sister of Miss Amy Evans), and Mr. and Mrs. John Lewis (draper). Mr. John Rees, the organiser of the trip, Avas extremely suc- cessful in getting Mr. Workman, manager of the Savoy, to invite the whole of the party to visit Miss Evans behind the scenes at the close of the performance. Miss Evans received the party very cor- dially. shaking hands with every one, remarking she was extremely grateful to those present for coming such a long way to see her in "Fallen Fairies." She ex- pressed great admiration for the lovely bouquet.
APOLOGY. Glandwr Hotel, Ystrad, 12th January, 1910. To Messrs. Henry Thomson & Co., Newry. Dear Sirs,—I beg to apologise for having on several occasions passed off as your well-known Brand of Irish Whisky an article of a different and cheaper quality. The practice was suggested by the similarity of the labels on the bottles containing the respective Whiskies. I hereby undertake that it shall be dis- continued forthwith. You are at liberty to publish this apology. Yours faithfully, 030 (Signed) GOMER DAVIES.

New Workmen's Hall Ferndale. The New Hall is well worth a. visit this week, the play staged being Miss Marie Dagmar's romantic Venetian drama, en- titled The Tyrant (under the direction of Mr. Chas. E. Wame), and is being well received by full houses. The characters are well sustained all round, and excel- lent scenery and capable stage manage- ment aid the performance. The bluster- ing and unscrupulous "Angelo" (the Tyrant) is impersonated with plenty of sinister meaning by. Mr. Roy Fortescue, whose work exhibits many good qualities. Miss Marie Robson, the leading actress, paints "Tisbe" in vivid and effective style, which she maintains with un- flagging vigour to the end. Rudolph, Prince de Rama" is atoly done by Mr, Edward E. Louis. Mr. Percy Falliss gives a, very convincing and interesting study of "Homodei the Avenger." Miss Jean Scott gives an excellent personification of Lady Catherine (the wife of Angelo). Miss Katie Lever created a favourable impression as "ReginelIa," Mr. Wilson Summers and Mr. Fred Luard contribute a comical representation of Victor and "Nobbo" respectively, and keep the house spellbound. "Lieut. Taska" is played by Mr. J. P. Lallan in caustic style. Miss Emmie Burns takes the part of Daphne (Lady Catherine's maid) to perfection. Miss Lallah Shelton does justice to the part of Eulie."
Cardiff Empire. Next week, visitors to Cardiff Empire will have the opportunity. of seeing Miss Amelia Bingham, who has been accorded by popular approval the title of The American Ellen Terry." Miss Bingham invites comparison with the greatest actresses by giving Big Moments from Great Plays." She is a poAverful actress, highly cultured, beautiful and of true genius. Her excerpts range from Madame Sans Gene and La Tosca to "A School for Husbands," and her charming personality, dramatic force, and versatility are certain to make Miss Amelia Bingham an immense attraction next week. She will be, supported by Mr. Herbert Standing, Miss Beth Franklin, and Mr. Lloyd Bingham, and has met with the greatest success in this country. Olga, Petronowa, with her all-British mili- tary band, also occupies an important position on the same bill. The famous and beautiful Russian conductress from the Imperial Conservatoire of Moscow, and a pupil of the celebrated Wasilie Savonoff, will conduct the all-British band of twenty-five picked instrumental- ists, with a specially chosen programme for the people of Cardiff, including the storm scene from, the overture of "WIlliam Tell," and Tschaikowsky's 1812," with realistic effects, illustrating storm, thun- der and lightning, cannonading and the roar of battle. It is a sensational and electrifying performance and should draw all Cardiff to see it. D'Arc's Marionettes, whose extra- ordinary impersonation of vaudeville stars will provide a clever and instructive entertainment, should be sure of a hearty reception on their return to Cardiff next week. W. J. Churchill, the popular comedian; the Marsumas, comedians on wheels; Baby Betty Green, juvenile comedienne; Tom Moore, character comedian; and Edith Harmer are also secured to make up a strong programme.
Tonypandy. Tremendous Attraction.—Return visit (by special request) of the great Welsh drama, "Rhys Lewis," by the Aberdare Pageant Society. Two nights only, Mon- day, January 31st, and Tuesday, February 1st, at the Judge's Hall, Trealaw. 51511 Shakespeare at Treherbert. The F. R. Benson Shakespearean Com- pany (South) will pay a welcome visit- next week to the Opera House, Treher- l>e,rt. The F. R. Benson Companies are know a f rom one end of England to the other—Ave may almost say, all over the world, for the Annual Shakespeare Fes- tival at Stratford-on-Avon, which is con- ducted by Mr. Benson, draws people from the uttermost ends of the earth—as being the best possible in the production of the plays, and all those who are interested in the 'drama .should be grate- ful for the chance of witnessing these marvellous works staged. The production ITL of each performance is in the able hands, and skilfully carried out by Mr. Henry Herbert, who also plays the leading roles in the F. R. Benson (North) Company. We regret that the exigences of touring seem to prevent this talented company from visiting us more than once a year, and hope that the encouragement they are given will cause them to visit us again before the year is out. That is in the hands of the public; if they support the performances, Mr. W. H. Savery, the general manager, may be prevailed upon to book this company to our town at least twice a year, issuing at all times special reductions to school parties.
What interests Tonypandy More ? What interests Tonypandy more than local happenings? The following Tony- pandy item will be interesting to all and helpful to many of us here. For over two years I was a sufferer from sharp, cutting; pains in my back," says Mrs. E. A. NeAvton, of 152, Kenry Street, Tonypandy. When I stooped I found it difficult to straighten myself again. My legs and ankles were swollen and painful, and I was troubled with spells of dizziness, and could see little specks floating before my eyes. I tried different remedies, but it was only Doan's Backache Kidney Pills that gave me ease. I found relief after taking a, few doses of these pills, and a short course of them did me a world of good, making me feel better in every way. I can speak highly of Doan's Pills. (Signed) Eliza A. Newton." 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, Loncfon, W. Be sure you get the same kind of pills as Mrs. Newton had. 4905k
Reminiscences of an Old Minstrel The Five Royal Minstrels that are now appearing at the Tivoli, Pentre, this week contain three old stagers In the per- sons of Mr. Billy McLean, who was seven years with the famous Livermore Bros.' Court Minstrels; Mr. Dan O'Connor, who also was with Livermore Bros, for the space of seven years; and Mr. White, who saw six years' service with the same people. These three gentlemen are famous in the minstrel world, having been cradled in the business, and also having achieved remarkable cleverness in the blacked face line of business. Mr. White, who hails from the land of cakes, where he held the championship of Scotland for sculling for five years and swimming champion- ship for three years. Billy McLean tells some excellent jokes. During a conver- sation with a Leader" Pressman he told of a little incident experienced during a performance. He was trying to crack a joke, but he was constantly being interrupted by a gentleman in the stalls. At his wit's end Billy struck a happy thought, so the next time the interrupter spoke, Billy answered he was talking to the "butcher," not to the "block." On which the meddlesome gentleman col- lapsed. Another time Billy happened to be at Faversham, in Kent. during the season, when on inquiring for lodgings he was informed they did not take in hop pickers. It was somewhere in Cornwall that the minstrels were showing," and they en- gaged a policeman to look after the "queue" outside the theatre. The I policeman waited for a time, but in his impatience, eventually he came to the manager and asked for the" cue" he was to look after. Evidently, he didn't understand.
