"What is the Matter with us…
"What is the Matter with us All ?" To the Editor of the Rhondda Leader. Sir,-May.1 be 'allowed a little space hi your valuable paper to further empha- sise the query of I" Timothy," What is the matter with us all? in your issue of last week re the Ferndale Workmen's Hall and Institute? Timi)iliv started to vent his reelings," as he puts it, by criticising the actions of some of the members of the Workmen' Hall Committee, who happen to be either deacons or members of some of the local churches. He finds fault with them for allowing the hall to be let for the purpose of a wrestling match, and œlls upon them to resign either the com- mittee or the church. But as I happen to belong to the one ÚT two othere," I am not so much con- cerned with the above. Nevertheless, I would like to pay, a passing tribute to the consistency v of this self-styled Timothy." this champion of public purity, This pioneer of moral jjghteous- ness, who contents himself witn hurling veiled accusations from an ambush of a iiom-de-pHuiie. This "lover of the light" has solved the problem why the committee-cum- deacon members were silent upon the sparring exhibitions in other halls. He has perceived that they themselves were implicated in the same kind of moral degradation, and could no longer raise a voice of protest, But where was" Timothy" ? Sure, he was not guilty. Did he raise a voice of protest in his church? Did he endea- vour to infuse the moral courage—which he finds so much lacking in others—into the congregation of which he boasts to be ■a member ? I have never heard that he did. Judg- ing by his attitude in your columns, I can readily believe he didn't. When a man has not the courage to attach his name to what he wi'ites, one may safely assume that he is not the person he poses to be. But my purpose is not to defend or attack members of the churches; nor am I concerned with the merits or demerits of a wrestling :mate. JLiinothy made use of some remarks which were deliberately intended to con- vey an ugly imputation. He guardedly -mentior.ed. something about "picking" and plucking," and that some things were g0ing on which he doubted would ever be- brought to light. Such an attack is grossly unfair and cowardly. As a member of the committee, I can assure c Timothy," however clean his hands may be, that those of the Committee of the Institute are on par with his any day. And I challenge him to prove otherwise. But his bete noir is mismanagement." Perhaps the concern is not managed, in the way Timothy would have it; but I can say this, that it has the best of the body selected to do so, and their capabili- ties are not inferior to those of 1; Timothy," taking his effusions as a criterion, anyhow. And they have. the interest of the institution as much at heart as "Timothy" has, and probably more sc. Were he concerned with the interest of the Institution, he would not have rushed into print the way he did, when there were other avenues open to him bp which he could draw attention to any supposed irregularity or inefficiency in the management of the Institution. But there, a person who can see 500 years hence is excusable for anything! He can charge the committee with mis- management, and tell them that at the rate they are going on it will take 500 years to clear the debt; and, also, when that body shows a little business acumen, and cater for the public tastes in com- petition with other halls, he can turn round again and charge them with lower- ing the moral status of the place. It would be interesting to know on what he bases his calculations. It must be remembered that the hall has not been ,opened for more than twenty weeks, and the other departments—the bar, baths, ^e.—not more than thirteen weeks. No car. fairly judge, as yet, how the venture going to turn out. But Timothy must be a veritable expert in finance, as well as in Christian ethics, or be of a very dissatjsfied and cantankerous disposition, which, perhaps. is nearer the truth. He started out to find fault with the Free Church Council, then all the churches that belong to it, and afterwards the Hall and the Insti- tute in fact, everything is askew but himself. Timothy expects certain things to he done in a certain way, which is good. But what is had is that. he expects others to do them; and if they don't, he vents his wrath upon them from the cowardly J f refuge of anonymity. Now, What is the matter with us all?" What is the matter with you, "Timothy," anyway? Are you afraid to have daylight thrown upon your doings? If not, discard your assumed name and stand by your own.- Yours, &c., j J. D. JONES.
The District Council and Incorporation.
The District Council and Incorporation. To the Editor of the Rhondda Leader. Sir,—In reference to the report of the Council proceedings which appeared in your last week's issue, the decision arrived at on the above question must be of interest to Rhondda ratepayers. It is doubtful whether their resolution of form- ing themselves into a committee of en- quiry on this question at such a pre- mature stage is quite in order. They have done what no other Council has ever done when the question of acquiring a Charter has been so vaguely discussed. Not a single speech has been delivered in its favour during the past six months by any responsible ratepayer who has due regard to the highest interest of the general ratepayer, and not a single elec- tion was fought upon it in any part of the two Rhonddas last March. It was not even mentioned in any of the candi- dates' election addresses. Each and every old member of the Glamorgan County Council was returned, although they all were opposed to the Incorpora- tion of the Rhondda. The discussion which appeared in your columns a few months ago against the granting of a Charter also proved that such an ambiguous project is most unpopular. The Council's resolution was carried with only a. majority of one, while a few members were absent who would have certainly voted against such a rash move. If a Charter is ever granted, the Rhondda ratepayers will be immediately plunged into a debt of at least £ 300.000 in the erection of suitable buildings alone, while the salaries of ornamental officials will amount to a fabulous sum. It is, indeed, regrettable that the Rhondda Council should constitute itself a committee of enquiry by such a ridiculously small majority. The Mid-Rhondda Chamber do not agitate for Incorporation because they are convinced that our present local governing laws are inadequate jo meet present-day demands. They have moved in this, as in many other matters, because they are so fond of baubles. They recently resolved to fitly adorn their president and other officials with gold and flilver chains of office. I shall not be surprised during the next few days to hear the town crier announcing to the public of Mid-Rhondda that the gods will be on view during the next few days in some boot or drapery establishment. To assert that this Chamber has seriously discussed any form of local government from an unbiassed standpoint would be a gross libel on their sincerity. Their sole ambition is to obtain the new seat of government in Mid-Rhondda, and the Mayor's robes, mace, and other toys lodged in their midst. The Council should have enquired into the motives of the deputation. They did not represent the ratepayers of Mid-Rhondda as such; they represented only a proud and haughty Chamber who care but little what form of local government is most advantageous to the general welfare of the community,, so long as it brings with it a fine show of purple robes, helmets, and other frivolities. The deputation is, however, to be com- plimented upon having effected the intel- lectual downfall of the Rhondda District Council. The latter had for long believed themselves to be the leaders of thought and action in the Rhondda, but after the deputation had expressed their views, a Labour advocate declared, "It is a case of public opinion going before its repre- sentatives." If the Council had taken advantage of the opportunity to apply a few questions on the supposed advantages of Incorporation, it might have materially helped them to retain their equilibrium. The suggestion made by the deputation of appointing a financial exnert frightened the Council into submission. It must have been a pitiful sight; but the worthy Clerk managed to reassure them, and his speech-like oil-calmed the troubled- waters. I fear that the attainment of a Charter will prove a great loss to the

Penygraig. On Sunday evening, all the denomina- tions in the district united together to protest against the new Liberal Institute which has been opened in. Hendrecafn Road. The demonstration was organised bp the Penygraig and District Temper- ance Committee. The different congre- gations met at Ffrwdamos Square at 8 p.m., and -the whole crowd, numbering several hundreds, marched up towards the club. At the head of the procession was the Salvation Army Brass Band. The Rev. D. C. Jones opened the meeting through prayer, and called upon the Rev. T. Deri Jones, B.A., to read a strongly-worded protest. This was sup- ported by the Rev. J. R. Pugh, B.A., and Mr. Mark Harcombe, and was carried unanimously. Similar demonstrations are to be made again. An interesting wedding took place at Llanfair Church, the contracting parties being Mr. W. J. Evans, Trealaw (son of Mr. W. H. Evans, town crier), and Miss Gertrude May Goodacre, Edmundstown. The Vicar of Penygraig officiated. The bride, who was prettily attired in a cream creponne dress, with a wreath of orange blossom and veil, was given away by her father. The Misses Lily Etna and Doris Veronica (sisters of bride) and C'assie Jones, Tonypandy, acted as brides- maids, while Mr. Ed. Arthur Evans (bro- ther of bridegroom) was best man. The wedding breakfast was partaken of at the home of the bride's parents, after which the happy couple left for Monmouthshire, where the honeymoon is being spent. A movement has already been started to open another Workmen's Club at Penygraig.

Ystrad-Rhondda. A quiet wedding took place on Sunday morning last, the contracting parties being Mr. E. S. Tapper (eldest son of Mr and Mrs. Win. Tapper) and Miss Ethei Lyons, Trealaw. The ceremony took place at the Old Parish Church, Ton. While. following his employment at the Gelli Colliery, Anthony Williams, collier, of Arthur Street, Ystrad, was knocked down by a tram of coal, and sustained a compound fracture just above -the ankle of the right leg, and badly bruised the other limb. Morgan Thomas, roadman, residing at River Row, had his right eye severely injured whilst in the act of lifting an iron rail at the same pit. It is gratifying to note that Dr. W. E. Thomas, Llysygraig (chairman of the Rhondda Education Committee), is speedily recovering from his recent ill- ness.

Other well-known local temperance advo- cates also addressed the meeting, which was brought to a close with the usual votes of thanks. FIRE.

The District Council and Incorporation.
Rhondda when we are compelled to sub- stitute a barrister as Town Clerk for our present excellent officer. There are several important sanitary and other reforms which have been asked of the Council for many years, such as. the arch- ing of insanitary brooks, improved paths to schools built on mountain sides, suit-, able drainages to avoid the. occasional flooding of poor people's cottages, &c. They prefer a wild-goose chase and the exploitation, of the ratepayers' financial resources to the accomplishment of plain and useful duties. Before the Council takes any action in the acquiring of a. Charter, let one-half or the whole of them resign and see whether they will be re- elected on this issue. If our connection with the County Council is detrimental to the financial interests of the Rhondda, why does the Labour Party so eagerly contest almost every seat ? Why is it they do not dictate to their paid repre- sentatives their moral obligations to bring pressure on the County Treasurer to reduce his demand on the Rhondda exchequer? Why did the Mid-Rhondda Chamber allow their representatives to be returned unopposed-even without being asked to account for their steward- ship—if they seriously consider that a kind of County Council suzerainty is a detrimental form of government? It is to be hoped that the District Council will regain its status quo, and be led by other considerations than the pride and desire for baubles and frivolities which govern the Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade.—Yours, &c., ANTI-FTC MBIJG.
