One of the defendants said 1 he had a drop to drink because he had had I rheumatic fever, and suffered from rheums in the head."—Sir Marchant Williams, in imposing a small fino, said that cold water cure was the best. OUTBREAK OF FIRE.—On Tuesday morning, just after four o'clock, a fire was discovered to have broken out in an outhouse belonging to Mr. D. W. Evans, fruiterer, Pontmorlais. P.S. Cwilym Davics and Acting-Sergt. Jones, with a number of constables, hurried to the place with hose and reel, and found some boxes of straw on fire. The flames were extinguished before much damage was done. FORFEITED HIS RECOGNISANCES.—At the Merthvr police-court, on Tuesday, Martin Marr, who had been bailed out, failed to answer when his name was called. As is required by law, the Magistrates' Clerk called out three times, Martin Marr, come forth, or forfeit your recognisances," but the defendant did not appear. The charge against him was that of being drunk and disorderly. SIMPLY SLIrPFD.On Saturday night a man named James Davies was seen in High- street, Merthyr, in a state of intoxication. He fell upon the pavement, and was assisted to his feet by an obliging police officer, who, how- ever, did not wish Davies "good-night" without procuring his name and address. On Tuesday, when summoned for being drunk, Davies gave the Bench a polite smile, and apologetically told the Magistrates that he simply slipped down. This little slip cost Davies 10s. MEBTHYB MINXES' MEETING.—The monthly meeting of the Merthyr miners' district was held on Saturday night, under the presidency of Mr. John Evans (chairman). ilO was voted to the Blainscough (Lancashire) miners, who are on strike, and a similar sum to the men on strike in the Ogmore and Gilfach district. Some of the men alleged to have been victim- ised at the Cwm Pit because they refused to work under price came before the committee, and it was resolved that the agent and the men should appear at the colliery to-day (Monday), and failing a satisfactory settlement that other measures be taken. WHAT DOES IT MEAN ?—Great quantities of small coal are being stacked at the collieries in the Merthyr district. It is estimated that the quantity stacked by Nixon's Navigation Company at Merthyr Vale is 100,000 tons, and by Messrs. Guest; Keen and Company at Merthyr 50,000. Hill's Plymouth Company, Merthyr, have also commenced to stack small coal. It is stated on behalf of the colliery proprietors that the reason for stacking such large quantities is that there is no demand for small coal, but some of the oldest inhabitants of Merthyr, who have seen good and bad times, do not remember so much coal being accum- ulated as during the past few weeks, and regard the storage as a sign of preparation for possible emergencies. LATE JUDGE GWILYM WILLIAMS.—A meeting of the late Judge Gwilym Williams' Memorial Committee was held at the Royal Hotel, Car- diff, on Saturday evening, under the presidency of Mr. Godfrey L. Clark. Mr. Gcscombe John, R.A., was also present. The hon. secretaries, Mr. Tom Davies and Mr. T. Lloyd Evans, reported that the sum of 1:1,276 19s. 2d. has been received. It was decided to ask the Earl of Plymouth, Lord Lieutenant of the County, to unveil the statue some day in November on a date convenient to his lordship. A sub-committee was named, with the fol- lowing gentlemen to make arrangements for the day of unveiling, viz., Mr. Godfrey L. 'Clark, Mr. J. E. Moore Gwynne, Neath, Col. T. Phillips, Aberdare, Sir Wm. Crossman, Cardiff, Mr. O. H. Jones, Fonmon Castle, and the secretaries. ADULT SCHOOL.—Mr. T. David was present on Sunday last, and gave the first part of a most interesting address on A Chapter in Welsh History." Dealing with the period when such stalwart and doughty champions of religious liberty as Revs. Griffith Jones, Daniel Rowlands, Howell Harris, and Thomas Charles, of Bala, were living, the speaker quickly gained a sympathetic hearing, not alone from the Welsh but also the English portion of his audience. Of great interest to Adult School men was the fact that what some are even now pleased to look upon as an innov- ation is in reality over 200 years old, and thjt an Adult School was held at Dolgelly at 6 o'clock in the morning, and then on account of some difficulty arising, was held two hours earlier, viz., at lour o'clock, and attended by about 80. To-day it is thought little short of miraculous that 60 or 70 can be induced to attend Merthyr School at nine o'clock. The time was all too short, and rather than cut the address down Mr. T. David has been induced to continue it on Sunday next, at Shiloh Chapel.
