A COUNTY COURT FOR YSTRADYFODWfi. SUCCESS OF THE AGITATION. A movement set on foot by the Rhondda Valleys Chamber of Trade and supported by a large number of the Inhabitants of the Rhondda Valley to obtain separate County Court sittings at Ystradyfodwg has at last been successful, and the London Gazette of Tuesday contains a Privy Council order notify- ing that Her Majesty the Queen has been pleased to order that the County Court of Glamorganshire now holden at Pontypridd shall, from and after the 30th October, be held at Pontypridd and Ystradyfodwg. The advantages accruing from the establishment OT a Court at Ystrad have been so many times pointed out in connection with the agitation, which has just proved successful, that it is unnecessary for us to enter into them here at any great length. Suffice it to say that litigants and others having business to transact at the Couuty Court have for years been put to great inconvenience in having to go to Pontypridd, and in having sometimes to spend two or three days in attending the Court, in addition to paying railway fare, and that all this will, to a great extent, be obviated by the new Court being opened close to the homes of the people. The fact of this boon being granted so soon is due, no doubt, to the influ- ence ot Judge Gwilym Williams, who takes the most intense interest in everything that concerns the welfare of this most important district. We understand that the Kegistrarship of the Ystradyfodwg, as well as that of the Pontypridd Court, will be held by Mr E. C. Spickett, and that beyond giving facilities for the transaction of Court business in the Rhondda, there will be no change in the arrangements, the oder simply being that the Court now holden at Pontypridd be in future held at Pontypridd and Ystradyfodwg.
