The New Terms.) —™!
The New Terms.) —™ Miners' Leaders Urge Their Acceptance. Mr. Watts Morgan on the Situation. The monthly meeting of the Rhondda (No. 1) District of Miners was held at Porth on Tuesday. Strong speeches were made by Messrs. D. Watte r Morgan, Tom Evans (agents), and Mr. W. H. Morgan, urging the workmen to ballot in favour of the new terms. Mr. Watts Morgan said that although the terms were not what the leaders set out to obtain, they were tlie best pro- curable at the present moment, and it would be worse than folly to plunge the coalfield into a sectional struggle. Com- mending the raising of the minimum from 30 to 3S per cent. as a great benefit to the workmen, Mr. Morgan remarked that whatever some people said to the contrary he held a decided view that the new minimum would prove advantageous. During the life of the recently expired agreement the selling price of coal had. been below the 12s. 5d., the equivalent of the proposed minimum. In February, 1905, the price of coal was 12s. 2.56d.; in May it was lis. 10.03d.; in August, lis. 5.61d.: May, 1906, 12s..06,1. August 12s. 3.28d,: and at the beginning of 1907 it was 12s. 4.34d. It would, therefore, be seen that the proposed new minimum, if they had obtained it in the last agree- ment, would have proved a great boon. They in South Wales were moving in the right direction to secure a regularity of wages above which they had previously been. In England, it took the miners 16 years to obtain an increase. in their mini- mum of 7* per cent., in South Wales they had secured an additional 5 per cent. in the course of seven years. That was a very favourable comparison. What had they achieved in South Wales during the past 21 years P From 1889 to 1896 their average percentages were 25 per cent., from 1896 to 1903 the average had risen to 33.81 per cent., showing an in- crease of 8 per cent. During the last seven years of the Conciliation Board's agreements, the averages were 45.71 per cent., or an increase of 20 per cent. during the whole period of 20 years. He would like to see it higher still, and his ambition was to see the minimum and maximum in the range of 50 and 60 per cent. It was the great fluctuations in the Wages which were disastrous to the work- men, but by increasing the minimum they Would have a safety valve for the regu- larity of wages. Some of their critics argued that the Executive Council ought to have r■<? £ used the. terms of the owners. They had no right to take that step. On December 13th the conference of dele- gates at Cardiff passed a resolution that the Executive were to negotiate and to submit the terms, to a ballot of the men. fhey were, therefore, carrying out their Instructions, and why should they be "lamed for doing their duty? He sin-1 c.ei'ely hoped the men would seriously con- sider the situation which faced them, and hp (Mr,, Morgan) had no hesitation under the circumstances in strongly recom- mending the workmen to ballot in favour 0l: a settlement. Justice Beyond Question. Councillor W. H. Morgan said that two the questions upon which they had yearned for a settlement, viz., the abnormal places and the minimum wage 3s. 4d. for every workman, had, been thrown aside for the moment. The jus- tice of the two demands was beyond ques- tion, and the owners had rejected them to their eternal disgrace. He was firmly of opinion that the owners would always successfully resist these demands until, they had been made national questions. He pleaded for a vote in favour of the terms submitted to their judgment. Strikes, like revolutions, were justified in the exact measure of the success which attended them. He thought they would all agree that a strike under present cir- cumstances in South Wales would spell ruin. Abnormal Place Problem. Mr. Torn Evans said that the leaders were being charged with a change of front in regard to the abnormal wage clause. It was true that they had given assurances that they would not sign any price list unless it contained a specific clause providing for the payment of a fixed rate of wages to men working in abnormal places. To be honest, they had to admit that the drafting of an effective clause had proved more difficult than they had anticipated. At the Cambrian Col- lieries, an abnormal wage clause was inserted in the price list in June last. It was, to all appearances, as stringent a clause as they could get, but when tested in the courts it was found wanting in its protective aspect. The leaders had not changed their minds as to the urgent necessity of such a clause being inserted in all price lists, but a change had been brought about because of the judgment in the courts. He, too, joined with his colleagues in urging the men to accept the proposed new agreement, not that it was what the leaders wished it to be, but because it was the very best that they could obtain at present. On Tuesday night, Mr. Alfred Onions addressed a mass meeting of the Gla- morgan Colliery workmen at the Swim- ming Baths, Llwynypia, strongly urging the men before ballotting to-day to weigh the consequences of a stoppage of work. Mr. Onions, who deputised Mr. D. Wattes Morgan owing to a severe cold, also addressed the Cambrian Colliery workmen at Clydach Vale.

C,M Quarterly Association
C,M Quarterly Association Meetings at Pentle. Overworked Students. Vigorouf Protests Against School Authorities, t The South Wales Quarterly C.M. Asso- ciation meetings were held at Nazareth, Pentre, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday last. The Rev. John Goll-eii Pontrhydfendigaid, this year's chairman of the Association, presided, supported by Dr. Cyndclylan Jones, Cardiff Rev. John Morgan Jones, Cardiff; Rev. Dobert Salmon, Llansadwrn; Rev. John Evans, Abermeurig; Rev. Evan Phillips, New- castle Emlyn; and the secretary. Rev. G, Parry Williams, M.A., Pontypridd. The conference proceedings opened on Tuesday afternoon, and there was a large attendance of delegates. Some discussion ensued on the applica- tion of the Glamorgan Presbytery for the ordination of Mr. J. B. Thompson, Clive Hall, Cardiff, without passing the Synod- ical examination. A motion was proposed by the Rev, John Morgan Jones, Cardiff, that the application be acceded to. Mr. Thompson had done excellent work at the Clive Hall, and had, moreover, nearly passed the last examination, being only 5 marks short of the required number. The motion was seconded, but an amendment was put forward that they, should not depart from the usual rule. The Rev. J. Cynddylan Jones. D.D., said he was quite in (sympathy \¡ith the amendment. He believed that tin Welsh pulpit should be filled by enlightened men, but having regard to the excellent work done by Mr. Thompson, he fully supported the motion. 4 The Rev. Richard Morgan. ToHfrefail, spoke strongly against opening the door to such exceptions. He would prefer that the examiners should show Mr. Thompson some leniency, especially as he had come so near the required standard. The Rev. J. M. Jones said the work of a Forward Movement evangelist was very different from that of the ordinary con- nexional minister. He was fully occupied with the work of the church, preached every Sunday to the same people, and had very little time to prepare himself for the Synodical examination. The Rev. Evan Phillins, Newcastle Emlyn, said that what they should con- sider primarily was the welfare of the church under Mr. Thompson's care, and if he was doing such valuable work there as had been pointed out, they should not put stumbling blocks before him. On a division, two voted for the amend- ment, and the motion was accordingly carried by a large majority. ORDINATION CERTIFICATES. The question of ordination certificates was nexit discussed. It was pointed out that English certificates had already been printed, and it was suggested that Welsh certificates should also be brought out by the next Association meetings at St. David's, Pem. The Rev. D. O'Brien Owen, Book Room Overseer, Carnarvon, said that next year would be the centenary of the Ordination, and he suggested that the present certi- ficates be accepted for this year, and that a new and more appropriate certificate be designed for next year. A motion to this effect was agreed to. The Association recorded its thanks to Mrs. Williams, Conwil, Carmarthen, for a donation of zC200 towards erecting the minister's house; also to Mr. H. Jones- Davies, J.P., Nantgaredig, for a donation towards the church at Llanarthney, On the application of West Glamorgan Presbytery, the Association passed a vote of thanks to Messrs. Rhys Davies, T. J. Davies and D. J. Davies, sons of the late Mr. James Davies, Abercrave, for their kindness in giving a piece of land free for the erection of Carmel Church, Aber- crave. One of the delegates also pointed out that Mrs. Davies, the mother of the gentlemen above referred to, had died this week, and a vote of condolence was passed with the family in their bereave- ment. w DEACONS' TRANSFER LETTERS. A lengthy discussion ensued as to what was the meaning of a resolution parsed at the last Association that transfer letters be given deacons when removing from one monthly meeting to another. It was pointed out by the Rev. J. Morgan Jones, Cardiff, that what was intended was that such a letter should merely convey the information to another monthly meeting the status whi-ch a deacon had occupied at the church, he was a member of before his removal to another locality. It was resolved that the matter be referred back to the committee respon- sible for the resolution, for further con- sideration. OVERWORKED PUPILS. A recommendation was brought forward from the South Cardigan Monthly Meet- ing, urging upon the Association to declare its disapproval of the onerous home lessons put upon Secondary School students, thus depriving them of, ppor- tunities for attending religious hr rvices on week-nights. Dr. Moelwyn Hughes, Cardigan, spoke very strongly on the question, anfl said it was far more important that their children should be well grounded in reli- gious knowledge than in mathematics and mensuration (hear, hear). The Secretary said that the complaint was not peculiar to South Cardigan. In

-----|Glamorgan Quarter Sessions.
Glamorgan Quarter Sessions. Local Cases. At the Glamorgan Quarter Sessions on Tuesday, Henry Franklin (30), clerk, pleaded guilty to embezzlement and falsification of the T.Y.R. Co.'s books at Pontypridd. The Vice-Chairman said accused was in a position of trust, and considerable sums of money passed through his hands. He not only falsified the books, but embezzled £ 58 and ran away, and was on his way to America when arrested. The Court passed sentence of six months' imprisonment with hard labour. YSTRAD STABBING AFFRAY. Thomas Morris (37), collier, was charged with maliciously wounding his brother, William Henry Morris, on Boxing Day. Prisoner lodged with prosecutor and his wife at Gelli, and were fast friends. They had been out together, and after leaving the Windsor Hotel, reached home at midnight. Subsequently a quarrel occurred, in which prosecutor was stabbed four times and his wife twice. Dr. Cbstello said that but for prompt medical aid prosecutor might have died through loss of blood. Prisoner was sentenced to nine months' hard labour. HOMING SOCIETY SECRETARY'S EMBEZZLEMENT. Thomas Cole (32) was indicted for embezzling the sum of £ 16_ odd, the monies of the Miskin Homing Pigeon Society, Porth. Mr. Wilfred Lewis ap- peared for the prosecution, and Mr., Griffith Jones defended. The case for the prosecution was that in October an audit of the Society, of which accused was the secretary, showed a balance in hand of P,20 8s. 9d., of which the secretary said he had E16 odd at his house, and would bring it to the club. A date was fixed, but the secretary dis- appeared, and was not heard of till March, when he was handed over to the county police by the Staffordshire police. The defence suggested that the accused's statement was that the money was safe enough, and that if the members would pay up. he would bring it to the club. It was further asserted that accused went to Staffordshire for work, leaving his wife and family at Porth for some time after- wards. Accused gave evidence. He was ultimately found guil+v, and in passing sentence of six m, s' im- prisonment, the Vice-Chairman i it was a mean theft, and pri .:1' had brazened it out.

C,M Quarterly Association
I Pontypridd, the children had no oppor- tunities for public worship on week- nights. They were kept to their home lessons up to a late hour, -and not only did this militate against their health, but also had a tendency to slacken the parents' hold upon their children. He, personally, was very glad that the matter had been brought forward, and he trusted that the Association would declare its voice on the matter in no uncertain manner, so that the public authorities might be induced to give their consideration to the ques- tion. The Chairman said that the complaint was a common one throughout the coun- try, and he believed that nothing better could be done than refer the matter to the Education Committee of the Assembly. This was agreed to. REDISTRIBUTION OF PRESBYTERIES The Rev. John Evans, AbernieufTg. read a paper, in which he advocated a redis- tribution of the areas of the Presbyteries. He quoted figures showing how under the present conditions many of the smaller monthly meetings suffered owing to the scarcity of churches. He therefore ap- pealed to them as an old man over 80 years of age to give the matter their consideration. Dr. D. M. Phillips, M.A., Tylorstown, moved that the matter be referred to a committee for consideration. Several other speakers advocated the principle dealt with by Mr. Evans, one delegate remarking that it generally took him about five or six hours to get home after a monthly meeting. On the motion of the Rev. Morris Morgan, Swansea, it was resolved that the matter be left open for further dis- cussion at the August and October meet- ings of tbo Association. I A Young People's meeting was held on Tuesday evening at Siloh (W.C.), pre- sided over by Councillor R. S. Griffiths, J.P., Clydach Vale. The speakers in- eluded the Revs. J. 0. Evans, Borth; T. F. Jones, London; R. R. Roberts, Car- diff; and J. Lewis Jenkins, Aberdare. Wednesday's Proceedings. At the afternoon meeting on Wednes- day, touching references were made to the deaths of the Revs. Edward Davies, Carmarthen; Rees Davies, Talgarth and Matthew H. Evans, Goginan. Eloquent tributes were paid to the work and worth of these departed ministers by the Revs. Isaae Thomas, Pembrey; Rees Evans, Llanwrtyd; and Prof. Young Evans, Aberystwyth. Votes of condolence with the families of the above were passed. -n__m_ 1 THE GOSPEL OF MATERIALISM. The Rev. T. Jones Davies, Taff's Well, presented a statistical report showing the strength and financial position of the denomination in East Glamorgan. The speaker pointed out that in ten years the number of churches had increased by 13, and the increase in membership totalled 4,890. They could congratulate them- selves that, although there had been a great amount of backsliding after the revival, they could still count on the very substantial increase above referred to. The Rev. W. J. Williams, Hirwain, dealt with the spiritual aspect of the churches in East Glamorgan. He regret- ted to say that there appeared to be a spiritual degeneration amongst the people, and unless a change came over matters i soon, he did not know where things would end. The speaker also made a veiled inference to the advent of English so- called political teachers, whose whole gospel was materialism, and who even materialised the Saviour's Gospel. A VETERAN'S TESTIMONIAL. Mr. Evan Evans, Aberystwyth, referred to the proposed testimonial to the Rev. Thomas Levi, Aberystwyth, the veteran editor of Trysorfa y Plant." He said that, although Mr. Levi had given the best of his long life to the Connexion in various directions, he regretted to say that the response to the committee's appeal for subscriptions was very meagre. He trusted that the churches would yet wake up to their indebtedness to Mr. Levi, and that the movement would come to a successful head within the next few weeks. The Rev. John Morgan Jones said there was nothing of which he was more ashamed of than this testimonial. The movement was launched amidst great enthusiasm, but it appeared as if it had now died out. It only proved what had been said of them as a nation that they were soon fired and soon cooled. He proposed that a circular letter be sent to all the churches on the matter. This was agreed to. In the evening, public meetings were held at Nazareth and Siloh (W.C.), when addresses on the temperance and mis- sionary questions were delivered. Thursday was set apart for preaching services, among those officiating being the Revs. John Williams, Brynsiencyn; W. E. Prytherch, Swansea; S. T. Jones, Rhyl; Evan Phillips, Newcastle Emlyn; and the Moderator (Rev. John Bowen).
