Gohebiaethau. THE L.C.C. ELECTIONS. To the Editor of CYMRO LLUNDAIN A'R CELT. DEAR SlR,-I am surprised no one has seen fit to reply to the letter of a follower of the Duke of Norfolk in your issue of February 9th last, and yet it should be rather a matter for congratulation that the many readers of your paper are able to rise above and re- gard with disdain such an inflammatory and contra- dictory epistle. It is characteristic of the Moderate party to appeal to the Caesar of Self, and worthy of their Bricks and Blankets'" methods of fighting, to put forth that appeal upon a false issue. As a matter of fact the L.C.C. in their General Powers' Bill do not seek for anything new, in the matter of milk supply. They only seek to confer similar powers on all the various local bodies, some of which at present are able to establish depots. "Devonshire Cream" is wilfully misleading when he omits to state what the milk depots exist for. There is not the remotest intention on the part of the local bodies to provide anything except "modified milk" for the feeding of infants, which is not at present supplied by milk vendors generally. There is here no unfair and unjust competition," and when it is known that the dairymen are fighting against what is avowed by all sanitary experts to be the best cure known for in- fantile mortality, it will not redound to their credit. To place trade before health is to return to the middle ages, and even to the times of the Norman Barons. The Municipal Reformers are against municipal trading, says "Devonshire Cream"; yes, they are against everything which makes for the good of the common people, as distinguished from the benefits accruing to the classes. Devonshire Cream does not give us any information as to what these people with a newly-hatched name are in favour of. Then let me enumerate a few 1. Handing over London to the Trusts for the electric supply. 2. Handing over the schools to the priests for management. 3. The leasing of municipal monopolies to com- pany promoters. In fact any project for relieving the burdened rate- payers of profitable and remunerative investments, has the entire and hearty support of the Ducal Gang," as they hope to keep the cream (Devonshire and otherwise) for their own consumption, leaving us the poor ratepayers to fight for the skimmed." Welsh dairymen do not be misled. Nac anghofiwch. Na choeliwch na'r Due na Devonshire Cream," ond rhowch eich llais a'ch pleidlais dros y blaid, o'r hon y mae pump o leiaf o'i phleidwyr yn yr etholiad presennol yn Gymry glan.I am, &c., WELSH CHEESE.

PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT. FALMOUTH ROAD WELSH CHAPEL. z GRAND CONCERT I ORGAN RECITAL THURSDAY, WHRCH 21st, 1907. Particulars next week.
AFTER his return from Cambridge, Mr. Keir Hardie says that the Welsh miner is a gentleman." We all knew that. THE Welsh associations at Swansea and Ystalyfera have had capital meetings lately. Wales is decidedly looking up. LIVERPOOL has a very successful lodge of Freemasons, and an interesting gathering of the craft was held on Friday last at the Masonic Hall, Hope Street, under the presi- dency of Councillor Henry Jones, the W.M. for the year. RHYL is about to establish a Free Library. Although a Welsh town of considerable fame, the local Council have decided to give preference to English books, inasmuch as the library is intended mainly as an attrac- tion to summer visitors. IT is an open secret that acute differences of opinion existed between Proff. Henry Jones and Lord Justice Vaughan Williams as to the method of procedure of the Welsh Church Commission. The statement that will be made on Tuesday, however, will clear all difficulties. IT is not often that scientific books are written in the Welsh language, but a new work on Radium has just appeared from the pen of Mr. Caradog Mills, Llanrwst. THE Brylhon is the only paper that is now printed at Liverpool. This new Welsh weekly is becoming very popular in the North Wales district. It is well written and ably conducted. OUR special correspondent writes "I was present at the meeting in the Cory Hall, Cardiff, on Monday night, when the much- wanted 'League of Welsh Liberals' was launched upon Wales. A more miserable meeting I have never attended. There was only a small attendance, the bulk of whom had been whipped up for the occasion by the Secretary of this precious association. Mr. D. A. Thomas, with that cynical smile of his, tried to be sarcastic at the expense of Mr. Lloyd-George's Carnarvon speech, but the audience only smiled when they remembered how jealous D.A.' is of the President of the Board of Trade, and how particularly sore he feels because he was not consulted on the question of the appointment of official receiver in the Merthyr District. TLLT Tut! D.A., we know all about it,' the audience seemed to say to themselves. Mr. Ellis J. Griffith made a good speech, the best of the evening, and then came the Rev. John Hugh Edwards with his impassioned eloquence.' Oh! that impassioned eloquence.' How some of the observers in the back streets smiled. It was positively thrilling But enough. The 'League of Welsh Liberals' is destined to die at a very early age of too much impassioned eloquence.' BIRMINGHAM traders consider that their only hope of success in their campaign against oppressive railway rates is an appeal to the Right Hon. D. Lloyd-George. After their past treatment of the President of the Board of Trade, it is curious that he is to be their saviour after all.
