On the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Mr. W. Morgan, Abernant, sup- ported by several of the members of Calfaria, Abernant, and Gadlys. a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the Principal for his interesting and instuictive address; and a number of sub- scriptions to the fund wore promised. "SMOKER."—On Monday a supper, followed by a, very successful smoking concert took place at the Fothergill's Arm;, the host and hostess (Mr. and Mrs. Davies) providing a very excellent repast. The affair had been organized jointly by the local branches of the United Patriots and the Gas Workers' Union, and some sixty sat down to supper, which was thoroughly enjoyed. Mr. F. E. Lloyd pre- sided over the concert. Mr. W. Lloyd, the oldest member present, in the unavoidable absence of Mr. Victor Morgan, the district secretary of the Gas Workers' Union, and Mr. Brabant, the organizing secretary of the Union, delivered a brief, and very pithy ad- dress. He dealt with the benefits to be de- rived from membership in Trades Unions and Sick Benefit Societies. He urged those pre- sent to allow nothing to cause them to drop their contributions to these societies, which they would ever find very helpful (hear, hear) Mr. George Price, on behalf of the United Patriots, also spoke. After apologising for the absence of Mr. Webb, the South Wales repre- sentative of the United Patriots, he said he fully concurred with the remark? of Mr. L'oyd, and honed they would all take them to heart (hear, hear).
