Late Mr. S. Fudge. Former Postmaster at Porth. It is with sorrow we chronicle the death of Mr. S. Fudge, of Bristol, which took place during last week. Mr. Fudge, who had attained more than the allotted span of three score years and ten, was a native of Bristol. He came to the Rhondda Valley over forty years ago, and was in a few years 'afterwards appointed post master at Porth, a post which he filled with distinction and honour for nearly thirty years. The most anxious period during his career as postmaster, he was wont to say, was when tne Tynewydd Col- liery was inundated in the year 1877, when he was set the arduous task of transmitting numerous messages in con- nection with this unfortunate disaster. Among the many messages which he re- ceived was a message of sympathy to the families from Queen Victoria. Porth had not then the telegraphic and postal facilities of to-day, and for the services which he so efficiently performed on that occasion he was made the recipient of a beautifully illuminated address by a representative committee of the public of Porth, Pontypridd and district. The area of the Porth Post Office extended at that time to Mardy, Ystrad, Gilfach Goch, Trehafod, and Gyfeillion. It is creditable to say, though he had so large a district to cover each day, that during his tenure of office he was always punc- tiliously polite and obliging almost to a fault—as the Porth traders will testify. Mr. Fudge was also a most capable musician, and had acted as conductor of Ferndale and also Cymmer Brass Bands. He retired from the post office a few years ago to take up the duties of land- lord of the Tymawr Hotel, near Ponty- pridd, which is now kept by his son. He shortly afterwards returned to his native home at Bristol. He leaves five sons and two daughters to mourn his loss. The funeral took place on Friday, when his mortal remains were laid to rest at Llethrddu. There was a very, large attendance of Porth tradespeople and friends. The Vicar of Llanwonno and the Revs. Raymond and Evans per- formed the burial ceremony. The chief mourners were: —Mr. Walter Fudge, Pontypridd, Mr. Alfred Fudge, news- agent, Porth, Mr. Wm. Fudge, Ponty- pridd, and Mr. John Fudge, Wattstown (sons): and Mr. James Williams, butcher, Porth (son-in-law). Among the friends present were: -Councillor Wm. Evans, Porth Farm; Mr. N. Newton; Mr. A. Williams, Brynglas; Mr. T. Davies and Mr. D. W. Davies, chemists, Porth; Messrs. Geo. Webster- W. R. Thomas, newsagent; Jack Morgan; J. Smith- Davies J. W. Price: Ebenezer Evans; C. Russell; Geo. Price: E. Morris; J. Preece; D. Powell; D. W. Jones, Porth; T. Jenkins, Pontyclun; J. Vaughan; Captain Edgar Thomas' Messrs. W. S. Morgan; E. Price; J. Jeremy, and Watkin Thomas. The coffin was sur- mounted with a number of floral tributes.

Combine's lVIodified Terms Naval Men Advised to Accept, Grave Speeches by Mabon and Mr. Watts Morgan. "Final Often." A meeting of the Naval Colliery work- men (Cambrian Combine), who are out on strike consequent upon a dispute in the cutting price at the Five Foot Seam of the Ely Pit, was held at the Empire Theatre, Tonypandy, to receive the report of the agent (Mr. D. Watts Morgan) as to the modified proposals made by the owners at the meeting of the Conciliation Board at Cardiff on Saturday. Mr. Noah Morgan, chairman of the Naval Colliery Lodge, presided, and among those on the platform was Mabon, who was given a very cordial reception. At the outset, the Chairman announced the receipt of a cheque for L200 from the Llwynypia workmen in support of the Naval Collieries workmen, who have already been idle for over a, month, he letter conveying ltliis intimation pro- ceeded thus:—"The sum may be small in comparison with the number of men affected, yet the knowledge that you have the practical sympathy of your fellow-workmen will be more than the money to strengthen your determination to fight onward for the brighter hope in view (applause). We as a lodge hope to see the dispute amicably settled ere the month terminates, but, if not, then we as a whole will enter the fight (applause). Your fight will be our fight', and with a strong spirit of determination your suc- cess will be our success, and nothing suc- ceeds like s-uccess" (applause). The Chairman went on to say that gince their last meeting two meetings had taken place. The first was with Mr. Leonard Llewelyn at the Offices at Llwynypia, last Saturday week. but after a very length meeting they came to a deadlock, and it was decided to call upon the assistance of their old friend Mabon (on the workmen's side) and Mr. F. L. Davis (on the owners' side). As they were aware, another meeting took place at Cardiff on Saturday last, and the report of the proceedings would be pre- sented to them that day by Mr. Watts Morgan and Mabon. The Committee had gone very fully into the matter, and had decided that it would be better for the men not to pass a hasty resolution that day, as another meeting would be held, at which they would be able to give their final decision. The Committee felt that it was incumbent upon them to do this inasmuch as the issues were so great that it was only fair to their colleagues on the Combine Committee that they should know the actual position. In the mean- time, he asked them to carefully and seriously consider the report that would be presented to them before giving their decision. Mr, D, Watts Morgan, having reviewed the history of the dispute, said that the offer of the management in the first instance was Is. 9d. per ton for cutting, filling, and cleaning, with an allowance of Id. per ton for dealing with stone up to 4in. in thickness, and id. per inch for 1 4 any additional thickness of stone, the clod to be paid for on the scale in vogue in the Five-fpot Seams. The points at issue were thoroughly gone into at Car- diff on Saturday, with the assistance of Mr. F. L. Davis, on behalf of the owners, and Mabon, on behalf of the men. All along the line it was pointed out by the management that the workmen had not submitted any proposals with the view to arriving at a settlement other than that originally put forward for 2s. 6d. for cutting and filling coal, but to this com- plaint the rejoinder was made that neither had the management up to that time submitted any modified proposals. Ultimately it was pointed out that the Britannic Seam at Gilfach was identical with that which was now in dispute at the Ely Colliery, and the management, through Mr. Llewelyn, then offered the adoption of the price-list at the Britannic Colliery for the disputed seam at Ely. There were, however, some objections to this price list, one objection being that it was based on the 1879 standard instead of that of 1877, but this difficulty was got over through the Cambrian manage- ment, after a good deal of pressure, con- senting to translate the terms, so to speak, to apply to the 1877 standard. As far as dead work was concerned, the management had made a very material concession. It was only fair to say that this concession, which was that the schedule of rates in the Five-foot Seams should be adopted, would amount to a great deal. The great difficulty which had been experienced was in regard to the cutting, &c., of the ton of coal. In this connection the final terms which were offered, and which were now sub- mitted for acceptance to the men, were that the company agreed to pay 2s. 1.3d. per ton cutting rate in the Upper Five- foot Seam, this payment to include the cutting, filling, and cleaning of large screen coal and for all labour performed in dealing with clod and stone up to twelve inches in thickness, with a pay- ment of I d. per inch for every complete 4 additional inch. This change of the tonnage rate was again a material con- cession, and was 1.15d. more than was obtained in the price-list paid at Gilfach. Concluding, Mr. Morgan said that he oould assure the men that their battle was tenaciously fought by their repre- sentatives on Saturday in the endeavour to overcome the points raised by the management, and it was only by the assistance of Mr. F. L. Davis and Mabon that the concessions now made were offered the workmen (applause). The Chairman added that one point omitted by Mr. D. Watts Morgan was in regard to the payment of lid. per inch for rippings. Mr. W. Abraham (Mabon), M.P., said that the points had been so ably and lucidly explained by Mr. D. Watts Morgan that it was unnecessary for him to traverse the same ground. The credit of having brought the parties together was not to be ascribed to him but entirely to the Workmen's Committee and Mr. D. Watts Morgan (applause). Mr. F. L. Davis and himself (Mabon) were called in as conciliators—not as arbitrators-and in fairness to the chair- man of the employers' side of the Con- ciliation Board (Mr. F. L. Davis), he (Mabon) must say that that gentleman acted his part nobly (applause). To his mind they had now arrived at a stage when the men should seriously consider the step they would be taking before rejecting the proposals that were now made. His mind was clear upon the matter, and he felt it his duty to give them his advice. He was there in his capacity as chairman of the workmen's side of the Conciliation Board rather than as their agent. They had now arrived at a, stage went on Mabon with grave emphasis, which was far more serious than any previous stage if the proposals could not be accepted, and he quite agreed with the committee that the men should be given an opportunity to fully consider and think over the situation before finally committing themselves. Considering everything, knowing a good deal as to what obtained in other col- lieries, knowing, too, something about the various proposals and of the condi- tions of working, he was personally of opinion that the men would be acting wisely, after mature consideration, in accepting the proposals now submitted to them as a settlement of this impor- tant matter. (Some dissent). Mabon I am here, and I have a duty to perform. You have to think of the matter. It would not be honest for me to come here and not to give my opinion. My friends did not ask me to come here and be dumb in the matter. This is by no means the first time that I have had to give my opinion on points, and I want you to consider the matter, and I sin- cerely hope you will consider the vastly' improved conditions that are now put before you as compared with anything that has been offered to you before. Mabon again, in conclusion, pleaded with the men to consider the matter thoroughly and seriously before rejecting the terms now offered them. Mr. D. Watts Morgan, having replied to a number of questions bearing upon details, said that the terms now offered compared favourably with anything which obtained at neighbouring collieries. This, added Mr. Morgan, was the latest and highest offer of the company, and in that respect he strongly advised the men to accept the terms offered. The meeting then adjourned till Wed- nesday.
j Police Station for Penygraig. Deputation's Request Granted. Admirable Speech by Dr. Llewellyn. A deputation from the Penygraig and District Chamber of Trade waited upon the Standing Joint Committee of the Glamorgan County Council at Cardiff on Monday last. Mr. O. H. Jones occupied tha chair. The deputation consisted of the Rev. D. H. Simon (vicar), Mr. Frank Llewelyn, and D. Eynon Williams. Dr. T. R. Llewellyn introduced the depu- tation, and most ably advocated the claims for a police station in the locality. Dr. Llewellyn said this was the third time the Committee had been good enough to receive a deputation on behalf of the inhabitants of Penygraig, Williams- town and Penrhiwfer in support of an application to erect a police station in this populous district. When they ap- proached the Committee two years ago, they thought they had a strong case, but unfortunately they were unsuccessful. They were now, however, able to adduce additional evidence of the prosperity of these districts, and the urgent need of providing a police station at Penygraig. Dealing with the growth of the com- munity during the last twelve months, Dr. Llewellyn said that the total number of occupied houses in Penygraig, Williams- town and Penrhiwfer was 2,097, and esti- mating six persons to each house, the population total would reach 12,582. In addition, 98 houses were in course of erection at Penygraig, whilst plans had been prepared for 400 more houses at Penrhiwfer and Williamstown. The whole of the Dinas Estate, had also been mapped out for building purposes, and new roads were being laid out in all directions so as to meet the constantly increasing demand for house accommodation. A further important development during the last twelve months was the sinking of a new pit by the Cambrian Combine for the Naval Collieries, and he was assured that in a short space of time the number of workmen engaged at these col- lieries would be doubled, so that the possibilities of Penygraig were really great. Dealing with the difficulty experienced in conveying prisoners to Tonypandy Police Station, Dr. Llewellyn said Peny- graig was -4-mile, distant from Tonypandy Police Station, Williamstown ln2 miles, and Penrhiwfer and Edmundstown 2 miles. During the past twelve months, 175 prisoners were taken from these places to Tonypandy. Practically in every case two police escorts were necessary, and with the result that the police organisa- tion in these districts was seriously dis- turbed. Particularly so was this the case on Saturday nights, and so much time was occupied in conveying prisoners to Tonypandy that the districts were often left without adequate police protection. These difficulties were well appreciated and taken advantage of by young power- ful men of the disorderly class, with the result that a large number of offences had to be overlooked by the police. He felt that the existence of a police station would act as a great deterrent to dis- orderly conduct of this kind. Another potejit reason in support of the application was that Penygraig was the terminus of the Ely Valley branch of the Great Western Railway. Since the developments which had taken place at Tonyrefail there was a, very large influx of people into the district, espe- cially on Saturday nights, and when they returned late at night they were not all in the same peaceful frame tf,mind. The result was that a good deal of hustling took place, and respectable people com- plained strongly about it. Dr. Llewellyn "also quoted the number of passengers dealt with at Penygraig Station during the past three months. These were as follow: -July, 22,000: August. 20,000; September, 15,000. In conclusion, he trusted that the rapid strides made in Penygraig and the sur- rounding districts, the Committee would see their way clear to grant their appli- cation. The Committee unanimously decided to grant the request, and a sub-committee was selected to choose a suitable place for its erection.
Ystrad. It is with regret and sorrow we have to record the death of Mrs. Elizabeth Daniel, wife of Mr. W. Daniel, Bryn Terrace, Ystrad, who passed away on Thursday of last week, after a long and trying illness. Deceased was an old and respected inhabitant of the Rhondda, and a faithful member of Bodringallt (W.C.) Chapel. Mrs. Daniel, who was 72 years of age, was conveyed from Ystrad by rail to Llanpumpsaint on Tuesday last for interment. The Rev. T. D. Jones (pastor) officiated at the house. The funeral arrangements were under the superintendence of Messrs. Howell Wil- liams and Son, Ystrad. Thanksgiving services were held at Bethel CC.M.) Chapel on Thursday of last week. The gervices were highly success- ful, and were conducted by the Rev. T. Lloyd (pastor). It has been decided to re-organise the Young People's Society at Bethel (C.M.) Chapel. A good programme has been arranged, and the first of the series of meetings will take place on Friday next, when a lecture will be given on John Jones, Blaenanerch," by the Rev. D. Williams, Treherbert.
Treorchy. The harvest thanksgiving services of St. Tyfodwg Church were held on Sunday and Monday last, and not on the days reported in our last week's issue. The preachers were the Revs. T. E. Griffiths, B.A., Gwilym Roberts, B.A., and J. Humphreys, B.A. Large congregations assembled, and the discourses were thoroughly appreciated. We are sorry to learn that the dispute between the St. Matthew's Choir and the officers of the church has resulted in the resignation of the choir's conductor. It is also said in authoritative quarters that a section, if not the whole, of the choir have expressed their disinclination to go to their proper places. A largely attended meeting and ,social was held at the Park and Dare Insti- tute last week by the members of the English Congregational Church to wel- come the Rev. Miss L. G. R. Smith as pastor of the above-named church. The tables were artistically and tastefully arrayed by Mesdames Reynolds and Phillips. The meeting which was after- wards held was presided over by the Rev. D- Rhagfyr Jones (Bethania), chairman, of the Free Church Council. The deacons of the Welsh and English Congregational Churches attended. Millward (solicitor), Pentre, and Mrs. ivuaward spoke in glowing terms of Miss Smith, and a very appropriate address was delivered by the Rev. T. J. Williams (Station Road). Indeed, every one who spoke testified to the admirable virtues and disposition of the Rev. Miss Smith, who, we believe, will be the means of increasing still more the membership of the church, 'rhe Rev. Miss Smith has earned the distinction of being the only woman pastor in England and Wales, and her first sermon in the locality as pastor of the above church was delivered on Sunday. She was, before accepting the above charge, pastor of the Hannah Street Congregational Church, Cardiff, and was trained for the ministry at Glasgow. She is a native of Liverpool. On Wednesday evening, at the Tre- orchy Girls' School, a public meeting was held, the object. of which was to form a branch of the League of Young Liberals in the locality. Mr. J. T. Lewis, the president of the Rhondda Federation of the League, attended to explain the aims, etc. The Rev. D. Rhagfyr Jones (Beth- ania) occupied the chair. A miscellaneous charity concert was held at Ramah Chapel on Thursday last in aid of Mr. John Rees, Dumfries St., Treorchy, who has been ailing for some time. Mr. W. T. Owen acted as secre- tary; Mr. Evan Lewis, Stuart Street, treasurer; and Mr. Daniel Evans, Dum- fries Street, as chairman of committee. Miss Pauline Allen, of Bristol, was soprano, and sang Carmena," At My Window," and Sing, Sweet Bird," and fairly captivated the audience. Miss Allen responded with "Good-bye" (Tosti) as encore. Mr. Perry, of Wells Cathedral, was tenor, and was accorded a fine ovation. His rendering of My Queen and "Evening Song" (Bluementhal) and "Come into the garden, Maud were greatly appreciated. Mr. David Evans, Treorchy, was baritone, and sang The Toreador," "Thora," and 11 clymrli, fy Ngwlad," with excellent effect. The tit- bit of the evening was the duet, A Night in Venice," by Miss Allen and Mr. Perry, which fairly took the audience by storm. Mr. Perry also sang the duet, Go, Baffled Coward," with Mr. Evans, this also being well sung. A party of about twenty voices, under the conductor- ship of Mr. W. T. Owen, sang Harlech," Away to the Forest," and Two Roses with good effect. Mr. Tom Evans, C.I.S.M., Treorchy, was accompanist, and, as usual, performed his work credit- ably.

Porth. Mr. T. A. Lewis, B.Sc., Porth, delivered on Saturday evening last at the St. John's Hall, Cynnner, a most edifying lecture to a fairly large congre gation. Councillor Thos. Griffiths, Maes- gwyn, presided. Mr. Lewis' subject was Welsh Nationalism as an Imperial asset," and the lecture was brilliant and characteristic of Mr. Lewis' style and vigour when dealing with anything apper- taining to Wales. By strength of char- acter, said Mr. Lewis, the Welsh nation had evolved t)ut of the condition it dwelt in two or three centuries ago. Welsh Nationalism was not only recent, but it was an essentially modern product. Nationalism was not sentiment, but the soul of a nation, which was impressing itself inevitably in the consciousness of a man with a high destiny. After having explained Imperialism, Mr. Lewis said that Nationalism was far from being in- consistent with it, or really necessary to it. He also drew attention to the Colonies and their development, and said that Wales could be of greatest' use to the Empire by being true to itself, developing its own individuality with un- daunted courage and zeal, and establish- ing itself firmly, and ever doing its own part in Imperial affairs. Mr. Lewis' address was greatly appreciated. Successful harvest thanksgiving services were held on Monday last at the John Pugh Memorial Hall. The Rev. E. Burgess (pastor) preached at both morn- ing and evening services, and delivered inspiring sermons to a very fair attend- ance. A large amount of beautiful flowers (given by the members) decorated the chapel, all of which were given to the Porth Cottage Hospital by the ladies of the church after the evening service. The Rev. J. Jones, Trehafod Forward, Movement, addressed the P.S.A. meeting in the afternoon, taking for his text, Whatsoever thou sowest, so shalt thou also reap." -+--+- At the English Congregational Church, the Rev. R. E. Salmon officiated, and submitted an instructive sermon on Paul to an excellent and well pleased audience. -+--+- Mr. A. W. Rees, Cardiff, delivered a lecture at the Lesser Town Hall, Porth, on the subject, Christ on the earth again." Mr. D. Thomas, Porth, presided, and there was a moderate attendance.
Ferndale The Ferndale Industrial Co-operative Society, Ltd., commenced their series of concerts and lectures on Saturday even- ing last with a concert at Tabernacle Chapel, Ferndale, and the sacred edifice was filled with a very appreciative audi- ence. The artistes iw,:ro as follow; — Soprano, Miss Winifred Thomas, Bristol; contralto, Miss Lily Fairney, R.A.M., L.R.A.M., Briton Ferry; solo pianist, Miss Gwen Davies Barry (winner at Colwyn Bay National Eisteddfod); elocu- tionist, Mr. H. A. Ceaton, Barry (winner at Colwyn Bay National Eisteddfod); accompanist, Mr. J. Morgan Lloyd, Barry. The chair was occupied by Mr. Tom Morgan (chairman of the, Society), who referred to the excellent fare ore- pared by the committee for the forth- coming season, and trusted that the mem- bers would support theireffort.g, by giving the movement their generous help. He also stated that Mr. Percival Driver, London, who was billed to appear, had at the last moment cancelled his engage- ment, but an excellent substitute was found in the person of Mr. Ceredig Walters, L.R.A.M. The proceedings were opened with a pianoforte solo, Val,se Brilliante," by JVIiss Gwen Davies. This young lady was" highly complimented by the adjudicators of the last National Eisteddfod upon her brilliant playing. Miss Davies is a pupil of Mr. J. M. Lloyd, Barry, and is npw about to enter the Royal Academy for further' training. This was followed by Miss "Lily Fai rney with a song, Dear Heart (Dudley- Buck). Miss Fairney was unfortunately suffering from a. severe cold, and conse- quently was at a great disadvantage. In the second half of the programme she had to retire owing to weakness. "Although thus suffering, she gave a splendid ren- dering of this solo, and won a wann reception from the audience, and was obliged to respond. The song, "Titania," by Miss Winifred Thomas, gave ample opportunities of showing the excellent technique and timbre of her voice. Her top notes were produced with flexibility and ease. Her singing warmed the crowd, and secured an encore. A new feature in concerts at Ferndale was a recital given with musical accompani- ment by Mr. H. A. Ceaton. He gave several items with great dramatic power, and had to respond to many encores. The baritone, Mr. Ceredig Walters,' possesses a very powerful voice. We should like to hear him again at Ferndale. Miss Gwen Davies gave the. test piece of the last National Eisteddfod. The entertain- ment conclufled wiflr a vote of thanks to the chairman.

Buried Under a Fall. Inquest at Ferndale. An inquest was held on Monday after- noon at the Police Station, Ferndale, by Mr. R. J. Rhys, the coroner, on the body of Benjamin Godfrey Jones (60), married, residing at 6, Union Street, Ferndale, who met with his death on Thursday, the 20th inst., at the No. 5 Pit of. Messrs. D. Davis and Sons, Ltd. Mr. Thomas Evan Jones, son, identified the body, and stated that his father had worked underground for upwards of 40 years as a collier, repairer, and labourer. John Llewellyn, labourer, said lie was working with deceased on Thursday, I engaged in clearing a, fall in a road known as "Dai Charles' Road." which had been idle for three months, and whilst clearing away the debris tN)p large stones and a heap of rubbish came down, which buried Jones, killing him instantly. Richard Gilbert, collier, another wit- ness, who was working about 30 yards away from where the accident occurred, remarked that he heard the fall, and immediately went to the spot. He found that Jones had been covered with two heavy stones and about a ton of rubbish, which had fallen across the road from the roof and sides. D. W. Thomas, manager, And Morgan Davies, fireman, also gave evidence. A verdict of "Accidental death was returned. The remains were laid to rest at Llan- i wonno Churchyard on Tuesday afternoon last.

Dangerous Neglect in Tonypandy There are many in Tonypandy who do not realise how serious it is to neglect pains in the loins and back, urinary dis- orders, gravel, puffiness in the ankles and under the eyes, and rheumatic twinges. These, and other unmistakable symptoms of kidney and bladder trouble are due to the kidneys failing to filter the urinous poisons out of the blood. That is why kidney trouble is so serious, and why it so often ends fatally. An encouraging Tonypandy cure is given here. "For a long time I had been troubled with my back," says Mr. Robert Bull, of 49, Eleanor Street, Tonypandy. "Being a collier and having to work in all manner of positions, made my back worse than ever. The pains were in the region of the kidneys, and I often had a difficulty m getting up after stooping. IA had urinary disorders as well, the water Seing discoloured and scanty. Having heard so much about Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, I tried them, and they cured me. When i had taken one box of the pills my back was easier, and soon afterwards all the symptoms of kidney trouble had gone. I keep some off Doan's Pills by me now for I am occa- sionally subject to backache. I can highly; recommend the medicine." 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 Mr. Bull had. 4905v
