Rhoqdda District Couqcil. I Treherbert Tradesman's Remarkable Letter Preference to Foreigners." I Liberty of the Individual. n .1 councillor inos. rnomas, .J .±\, istrad, presided at the monthly meeting of the Rhondda Urban District Council held at the Council Offices, Pentre, on Friday. The members present included Councillors J. D. Williams, J.P., W. H. Morgan, Lewis Hopkins, L. P. Griffiths, Walter Williams, H. E. Maltby, Thos. Griffiths, R. S. Griffiths, W. D. Wight, Dr. A. G. Tribe, Alderman W. H. Mathias, J.P., Ben Davies, Dd. Williams, D. C. Evans, Danl. Evans, Dr. W. E. Thomas, William Thomas, Griffith Evans, Edward Jones and Thos. Harris, together with the Clerk (Mr. W. P. Nicholas), the Surveyor (Mr. W. J. Jones), the Medical Officer (Dr. J. D. Jenkins), and the Director of Edu- cation (Mr. T. W. Berry). VOTE OF CONDOLENCE. Before proceeding with the business, the Chairman made sympathetic refer- ences to the death of one of their mem- bers—Councillor Thomas Davies, Ton- Pentre, who, he said, had been a, faith- ful member for many years. He moved a vote of condolence with the widow and family in their bereavement. Councillor Ed. Jones, in seconding, remarked that he had been closely con- nected with the late Councillor for the last eleven years, and had always found in him a true friend, and.they all agreed that his loss had not only been a blow to the family of the deceased, but to the Council as well. The vote was carried in silence. TREHERBERT TRADESMAN'S COM- PLAINTS. "PREFERENCE TO FOREIGNERS." Wholesale complaints were made by Mr. R. T. Jones, ironmonger, Treher- bert, as to the certain alleged grievances prevailing in that town, in the following letter which was read to the, members by I the Clerk: To the Members of the Rhondda Dis- trict Council. Gentlemen,—In the hope of seeing some improvement in matters over which you are supposed to Jiave some control, I am addressing you a few remarks which, I trust, will not be out of place, and hope you will give them the attention which I think they deserve. I wish to call your attention to the growing and intolerable practice of loiterers standing in other people's doorways. If they stood in their own doorways there would be no ground for complaint. As things are, however, the evil is totally unchecked and is growing daily—or nightly, perhaps, would be a more correct way of put- ting it. Years ago, I used to be inno- cent enough to believe that the police had power to remove such obstacles; but my experience of late years con- vinced me that I was wrong. Perhaps' you know and might settle the question once and for all, and so set at rest any 'doubts in the matter. I have a notion —though, of course, I may be wrong- that this evil is grafted of late owing to the increase of ice-cream shops doing Sunday business. We have four such shops in the main street, all within a stone's throw practically. Now, from your point of view, I have no doubt these shops are valuable additions to the community, as owing to the Sun- day trading they are able to pay enor- mous rents, and consequently higher rates and taxes than anyone else. It may be a good thing. for the Council to aim at getting tip-top rates and taxes, but I want you to believe me when I say that it is not all honey for the people living next-door to them. They attract all the young holligans of the place, and they can behave or mis- behave themselves there as they please, without let or hindrance. When they fill their doorway, then the surplus seeks the shelter of the doorway next door, and families coming indoors have to ask their kind permission to pass in! This is not always granted without some gr quips or cranks or jokes of doubtful decency. Situated as we are at the terminus or the tramways and to such shops on the spot, no wonder, then, that everyone is complaining. If we do so only among ourselves, you know nothing of it.. So someone must take the initiative. Hence my letter. Lately we have had a new departure —as if the foregoing distrietions were insufficient--ive. have had added to Gib them the inevitable chip potato cart (laughter). This is brought to our front doors. A fire is lit, and the street is soon filled with smoke. If any Welsh resident is unfortunate enough to have his chimney going on fire, he is fined 5s. but, of course, we must give pre- ference to foreigners. But this is not all; once 'the fire is lit, then the fat is in the fire, and the street is filled with a delightful aroma (loud laughter). This is continued for any length of time to suit their own convenience, regardless of anyone else's comfort. I don't know why or how long we are expected to tolerate this. Whether we should for- give several times or seventy times seven, I leave it to you to decide. But if you can put a limit on it, we may know when we may begin to expect redress. But what is more pertinent to the question is this, Why is this done in the front of the premises in- stead of the back of same? They have equal access to both, but by coming to the front they drive business away, -as people put their hands to pinch their noses and take to their heels as fast as possible to get away from the allure- ments of the chip potato cart (laughter). One other thing I can't help men- tioning. In the license you grant these

■ ii > -j The Tragedy of Woman's Life. WHY WOMEN AGE FASTER THAN MEN. ANvEMIA AND BILIOUSNESS CURED. What is there in life more tragic than the young woman who soon after marriage begins to fade and prematurely shows the signs of age, while her husband keeps his youthful health and vigour. The careworn wife and the youthful hus- band are to be seen every- where. There is something besides the work of the family res- ponsible for the wife's con- dition. That languid tired feeling is caused by womanly weakness and lack of nutri- tion. The grati- tude of a woman who had suffered is strongly illustrated in the case of Mrs. Webb, 30, Thomas Street, Rusholme, Man- chester, who praises Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills, and says she would not be without them. Mrs. Webb writes as fallows —" I have had severe attacks of Anaemia and Biliousness and tried different remedies that failed to cure me. Some time ago I came across a booklet of Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills and I decided to try a bottle of them, and have found great relief ever since I have been taking them. I would not on any account be without them in my house as I am thankful to say I have not had the slightest return of my old complaint. I shall never cease to most earnestly recommend them." Women who value health should never be without Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills. They are invaluable taken daily in doses of from one to three Pills until relief is obtained. They purify the blood, remove obstructions, promote a free and regular condition, and assist in the digestion and assimilation of food, thereby nourishing the body with new blood, rich dnd red, which circulating through the veins gives the skin a beautiful and clear appearance, glowing with the tint of perfect health.

No Protection Bars. Treherbert Farrier's Death, At Tydraw Institute, Treherbert, on Monday, an inquest was held by the Coroner (Mr. R. J. Rhys) on the body of John Lewis (42)), farrier, the victim of the pit-shaft accident at Tydraw Colliery the previous Thursday. Mr. Trump, H.M. Inspector of Mines, represented the Home Office, Albert Symonds, banksman, gave evi- dence to having banked the deceased down the pit on the day in question alone. Witness was about to place the protection bars in position, when Evans told him not to bother about them and to let him go. His words were, It does not matter about those, Symonds." Wit- ness, knowing he was weli accustomed to ride up and down the pit, did not think any more about it, and sent the cage down. Mr. Trump: What is your practice? Db you use the bars for single persons? —Yes, sir. How do you do for Mr. Ritson, the manager; put them up?—Yes. The Coroner He would be very care- ful about him (laughter). Llewellyn Jones, shoer at the pit and a well-known Soccer referee in the Rhondda, said deceased had complained of a dizziness in the head about half an hour1 before the accident. Alfred Gunn, hitcher, stated that the cage was about halfway down the pit when he heard something fall. The Coroner: What are your instruc- tions as to placing the bars?—They must be used on all occasions when men are travelling in the pit. Summing up, the Coroner remarked that Symonds had given his evidence straightforwardly, and if he was speak- ing the truth, the deceased man, like himself, was partly to blame. Symonds did not do his duty to the full extent, but he had listened to Evans and let him down without placing the protection bars. A verdict of Accidental death was returned, without attaching blame to anyone. At the request of the jury, how- ever, Symonds was cautioned to make use of the protection bars for the future. Fpactuped Spine, An inquest was also held on the same day on Thomas Bowen (30). collier, who died on Friday last from injuries sus- tained by a fall .of roof at the Fernhill Colliery, Blaenrhondda, in June last. Dr. Hind said the fall broke the victim's spine, and after lingering for seven months he died from exhaustion.

roreigners, you allow them to stock their coal, ice, cokes, potatoes, and all and sundry stock of any one inside the house. We can foresee what is bound to happen. The coal inside will pro- duce millions of blackbeetles, the sur- plus of which will be guaranteed gratuitously to the neighbours without even the asking for it. On the other hand, the continual dampness oozing from the ice is bound in time to affect the foundations of the house, and if and when it falls, others will be in- volved in the disaster. My letter has gone a good deal longer than what I had intended when start- ing, but believe me, I want your atten- tion to the foregoing. If there were no grievance, and if I thought you could not remedy it, I would not have wasted my time to write this letter, and would not ask you to waste yours in reading it with a view of .finding a remedy. This letter is not intended to be private, but meant for discussion by the Council. Leaving the case now in your hands, with all due deference.— I belr to remain. R,. T. JONES. Dr. W. E. Thomas led off the discussion with the, terse observation, Trade is slack." Councillor Thos. Thomas: There is a remedy, if what he states about the sani- tary condition is correct. The Clerk He does not allege it is a nuisance. With regard to the matter of loitering, it is for the, police to deal with. Questioned as to the ice complaint, the Clerk said this should go before the Health Committee. Councillor J. D. Williams: Can't he take action against them himself? The Clerk: Yes. Councillor W. H. Morgan: What about the potato merchants standing about the streets; have we no power in that ? The Clerk: No. Councillor J. D. Williams: They have no right to stand for an unreasonable time ? The Clerk: No. It seems to me they are questions for the police to deal with. They can order the chip potato fellows off. The Chairman: I think the opening of the shops on Sunday more of a nuisance than the chip potat-o carts. The Clerk: It is all a matter for the police, sir. It was resolved to communicate with the Superintendent of Police with refer- ence to parts 1 and 2 of the letter, and part 3 (sundry stock in houses) was rele- gated for consideration to the Health Committee. CANT AND HYPOCRISY." Letters were read from the agent of the local branch of the Municipal Em- ployees' Association, requesting the Council to adopt a resolution in favdur of considering applications by their em- ployees for an increase of wages through the branches of their Trade Union only, except in cases where applicants were being promoted to a more responsible position. It was pointed out that Aberdare Coun- cil and others had adopted the resolution. Councillor Tom Evans explained that the resolution was intended to app], diiq workmen only, and not officials of the Council. Councillor Thos. Griffiths moved that the letter be allowed to lie on the table, as it interfered with individual liberty. Dr. W. E. Thomas: They are asking us to tell a man he must pay for some- one to ask us for an advance in salary, or we won't give it. Councillor Tom Evans: Nothing of the kind we only ask for the application to be made. through Trade Unions. Dr. Thomas,: Well, I am a believer in freedom,. You want a law for the rich and one for the poor. Councillor Tom Evans Nothing of the kind. Councillor Thos. Griffiths. The only thing I see in it, it puts down the intelli- gence of the workmen. Dr. W. B. Thomas: The man who drives the ambulance van, who has no Union, deserves the same fairplay as Dr. Jenkins, our Medical Officer of Health. Councillor Tom Evans: That is cant and hypocrisy. Dr. W. E. Thomas: You can call it what you like. Councillor Tom Evans: The workmen are. in favour of the suggestion. Councillor Thos. Griffiths: A man is not less intelligent because he is outside the Union. Councillor Thos. Harris: There are no intelligent men outside the Union (laugh- ter). Upon a. vote being taken, 12 voted in favour of the suggestion and 10 against. Councillor W. H. Morgan: Let us have a unanimous resolution now. Councillor W. D. Wight: Oh! no. Councillor D. R. Jones: You won't get one. SUNDAY CONCERTS. THREATENED CONTINENTAL SUNDAYS." A letter was received from Mrs. Mary Stone, wife of the lessee of the Hippo- drome, Tonypandy, relative to the stric- tures passed by Councillors at the pre- vious meeting on Sunday charitable con- certs. Exception was taken to the state,- ment made by Councillor Thos. Griffiths to the effect that charity concerts seemed to be confined to Sundays," and Mrs. Stone pointed out that the whole of the proceeds of the concert held in aid of a poor local miner had been given for his benefit, and the incidental costs had been defrayed by Mr. Stone. Would it not be better, she asked, for the mem- bers to institute a few enquiries before airing their opinions. She wrote to vindi- cate her husband's good name. Councillor Thos. Griffiths said that in face of the letter he still maintained that charity should not be confined to Sunday evenings alone. This was no doubt a means to an end. Things were drifting to such an extent in the Valleys that a Continental Sunday was threatened. He did not think that the opening of the playhouse, or music hall on Sunday was calculated to direct the intellects of their young people in the proper direction. The Secretary of the Workmen's Hall, Ton, wrote applying for the return of the license fee for the performance on Christ- mas Day last, inasmuch as the proceeds had all been devoted to charity. Councillor Ed. Jones referred to the good work done by the Workmen's Com- mittee in alleviating distress amongst the workmen, no less a sum than JE159 having been distributed in the last couple of months in the district. The application was acceded to. INADEQUATE STREET LIGHTING. A deputation from Porth, headed by Mr. Jones (Jones and Jones, Porth), attended to call attention to the in- adequate street lighting at Hannah Street and Station Street, Porth. Mr. Wm. Evans (Messrs. Thomas and Evans) gave statistics as for the lighting power of lamps in streets at Pontypridd, Merthyr and Cardiff, the comparison being greatly to the detriment of the state, of affairs existing at the streets complained of, which were the principal business thoroughfares. Mr. Jones invited members to visit Hannah Street and Station Road after closing hours to see for themselves. It was resolved to relegate the matter to the Roads Committee, and Councillor Thos. Harris expressed a hope that the Committee would at the same time take into consideration the badly lighted streets in other districts. UNDERGROUND PUBLIC CON- VENIENCES. The Health Committee reported having received a letter from Mr. John Rees, secretary of the Mid-Rhondda, Chamber of Trade, asking the Committee to re- ceive a deputation upon the question of underground public conveniences for Pandy Square. The Committee resolved that Mr. Rees be informed that the question referred to in his letter had already received the consideration of the Council on more than one occasion, and that it had been found impracticable to carry out the sug- gestion, but that if, having regard to this fact, the deputation still desired to be heard, the Committee were prepared to grant them a hearing at their next ordinary meeting. PULMONARY CONSUMPTION. The Committee also reported having ordered the Medical Officer of Health to report to the Committee upon the ques- tion of the desirability of taking steps with a view of reducing, as far as pos- sible, the mortality from pulmonary con- sumption in the district, having regard to the memorandum thereon recently issued by the Local Government Board. RECREATION GROUNDS. The Committee also recommended that the Ward members be asked to consider and report to the Committee as to what further sites were available in their re- spective Wards for use as Recreation Grounds, so that the Committee might consider the same and enter into nego- tiations for the acquisition thereof. MEAT INSPECTION. The following recommendations were also made by the Committee: — (1) That the action of the Chairman of this Committee and the Medical Officer of Health in arranging for the attendance of three of the Sanitary Inspectors at the Central Classes established by the Gla- morgan County Council for the instruc- tion of Sanitary Inspectors in the impor- tant matter of meat inspection, &c., with a view to their ultimately obtaining special certificates qualifying them in this branch of their work, be confirmed. (2) That the Medical Officer of Health report at the next meeting of this Com- mittee upon the whole, question of meat inspection so as to enable, this Committee to consider the desirability of immediate steps being taken for providing an effi- cient system of meat inspection, and the desirability of adopting a scheme for the awarding of prizes to Sanitary Inspectors who succeed in securing a Special Certi- ficate of qualification for the inspection of meat and other foods. The report was adopted. INSPECTION OF HYDRANTS. '0\ The Special Fire Brigade Committee reported having further considered their previous report as to the appointment of an Inspector of Hydrants, to be respon- sible for the proper care of the hydrants throughout the district, and after con- sideration of the further report of the Surveyor upon the matter, it was recom- mended that the respective sections of the Fire Brigade be henceforth asked to make a monthly inspection of the hydrants in their respective districts, and' that the Chief Officer of each section be requested to submit to the Surveyor a monthly report upon such inspection. The report was adopted.
