Mrs. Jones identified the towi. which had ooen taken .from the cot.— PC. Doolan said he saw defendant on the com- mon with a chicken under his arm, which he said he had bought from a man on the road for a shilling. The man did not offer to take him •to the person from whom he bought it.—Mr. James Ward, of the Travellers' Rest, said the defendant called at his house about 10.55, and had no fowl on him at the time.—P.S. Hum- phreys said that when charged at the New Tredegar Police Station, defendant said he had bought the fowl off a man at 10.40 by the Old Mill.—The Bench dismissed the case. A GOOD CLOTHES LINE.-Benjuriin Krase, 40, collier, Aberbargoed, was summoned for stealing, an electric cable, value 3s. 6d., the J property of the Powell Duffryn Co., on Febru- ary 21,st.-P.C. Robinson stated that he went to the defendant's house, and recovered the cable. The defendant said it bad been given to him by a man underground, and as ho thought it would make a good clothes line, ho took it away from the oolhery.—-Defendant was fined 20s. COAL CUTTING.—John DAvies, 41, collier, Rhymnnv, was summoned for stealing coal, value 2if., the property of the Rhymney Iron Company on February 10th.—P.C.

Ttroz TILL I)RATEL-Rees Thomas, 24. collier, Pontlottyn, was summoned by Caroline Evans, single woman, Rhymney, to show cause, etc. The defendant did not appear. Mr. R. H. Spencer, of Tredegar, conducted the complain- ant's case- Complainant said that she had been engaged to the defendant. A letter was handed in to the Bench, in which defendant ad- mited paternity, and promising that if com- plainant got better he would marry her, and "if she died he would bury her nicely and re- spectably."—Complainant stated that defend- ant had paid her JE5 4s. 5d., about 5s. a. week, for some time, but had cow ceased to do so. His earnings, she said, he had told her were £ 7 a week.—An order was made for 4s. a week and costs. Two VxmroN's. --Jon atli an Roberts, 33, col- lier, New Tredegar, were summoned for assault- ing Martha Evans and John Evans, on the 12th March. Mr. T. J. Thomas appeared for the defendant. John Evans stated that as his wife was going up Briery yill defendant"met her, and seeing what Evans was doing he went to his wife's protection, whereupon defendant struck- him in the eye and kicked him. In reply to fr. Thomas, witness denied having struck the defendant—ha had never struck any nuui, nor had I)e an old quarrel with Roberts. His wife might have belaboured Roberts with an umbrella, but this was to prevent Roberts belabouring him. — Martha Evans was asked what she saw of the affair, and said it was not what she saw, but what she had, for the de- fendant shoved her to the top ot the hill. She could not help there being an old quar- ac. rel between her husband and the defendant, but she did beat the defendant with her um- brella. Mis. Warman said she heard a noise and went to see what it was, and she saw Ro- berts strike Evans, and then kick him in the face. Mrs. Evans was quite sober.—Gladys Jones, of Phillipstown, for the defence, said that Mrs. Evans was drunk, and fell down.

Barrell said he saw tha defendant take the coal from a truck, and heard defendant's wife shout to her husband, "Jim, comc down; here's a bobby corning."—Defendant was fined 20s. TRESPASSING.—Wm. Buckley, 31, collier, Pen- gam, was summoned1 for trespassing on the Brecon and Merthyr Railway at Aberbargoed, on the 22nd January.—Mr. Lyndon Moore, of Newport, said that this kind of thing was on the increase, and not only was it illegal, but dangerous.—P.C. Thomas sa^d he caught de- fendant in the act, and warned him to go back but defendant refused, and threatened to knock him on the head.—Fined 4Us.-TheophiluB!

Witness said a train was nearly due at the time, and defendant maintained t)>at lie had a right to cross the line, as ha had been doing.—Defendant was fin- i ed 40s. or one month.
Gellygaer District Council's Work ADDRESS BY THE RECTOR. MEETING AT HENGOED. The Rev T. J. Jones, M.A. (Rector of Gell- ygaer) opened his electoral campaign on Mon- day night by addressing a largo meeting at the Public Hall, Hengced, Mr. Horatio Perrott presiding. At the commencement of his address, the Rector said: When I appeared before you at the time of the first election the subject which formed the major part of what I had to say was that of the doings of the late Parish Council. The Parish Council has, I think, now become somewhat stale, and I am in this position that I cannot, and I would not if 1 could, say any- thing about it now for the reason that its doings are at the nresent moment the subject of an official inquiry by the Local Government Board, and until the decision of the Local Government Board has been given it is not for me, or any- one else, to pronounce an opinion. I stand ior fairglkjf ft is notfor JWiy-one'-to condemnuntilT/ prferccf 'guilty. by those? id a position to. judgfe.. M^iiands-'are clS6»'> Tfee?re> are foment taatjfr. be,' Vho -should like t6 trade u^on the history erf that Council, but I have a different foundation to stand upon in addressing you to-night (ap- plause). "DEATH-BED TRAGEDY." The Rector then proceeded to refer to certain things which the last Parish Council left as a legacy for the District Council to abide by, one of which was to make the position of the assistant overseer permanent—this was their death-bed legacy. He, however, made it one of his chief aims to get the salaries of officials fixed upon a clear and definite basis so that every ono might know what salaries were be- ing paid. To that end he insisted on making all salaries inclusive. It was a hard matter to get through, particularly in regard to the as- sistant overseer, and even the opinion of their clerk was that the Council could not interfere with the arrangement made. yet this difficulty had been eurmounted, and he did not believe that any official really felt agrieved by what had been done. They had tho same difficulty in regard to the salary of the Clerk to the Council, as well as the Sanitary Inspectors, too much of whose time had been spent in the train, but now he I believed they were more often seen in the back-lanes doing their duty. To secure this he regretted it was necessary to remove Mr. Macev to Pontlottyn in order that he might be on the spot to see what was being done. This was rendered necessary by what a special committee saw on their visit to Pontlottyn, where a man was seen washing milk cans in the dirty river. After pointing out the care that was so essential in regard to milk, and the danger to the public TO which auch a state of things as described at Pontlottyn ex- posed them, the Rector mentioned st?vr>o o? the great improvements which had be--?" «ft:o»:+«d by the Council in the Surveyor's depart-y.iM.t At the last election the cry raised was "Jtonft R;d for Gellygaer" (hear, hear). Ho agreed with that cry to a, certain extent, but m that in- stance it was a. movement to oust their pms&zt Clerk. Had there been no Clerk t the time, and the Council had been appointing one, h would have stood for selecting a an from the parish. But tha case was that they ha«i u Clerk in possession of the job, who, had they dismissed him. would have bocii entitled to compensation. Moreover, he wis a Clerk against whom no one had anything to say. Tie was prominent for his honesty (applause). The Clerk would go in the natural course of things, and although he did not reside in the parish, he had now appointed a young man as his de- lyuty-P, very able young man whom any Coun- cil might be proud of-to do his work when ab- sent. When he (the Rector) first entered the Council he found many strange tbings-things which needed remedying. In the Surveyor's department things had got into the rut of certain habits, and with the developments so rapidly taking place he considered it necessary to propose re-organisation in this department to enable it more efficiently to attend to the work of the district. Under the reorganisation they had now a head of the department in the Surveyor, an excellent building inspector in Mr. Gabe, and a promising road inspector in Mr. Howell Jones, whose duty it was to go along the roads twice a month and to report. It was discovered, too, that the Surveyor had not the power to engage or dismiss men, but that the Council engaged or recommended men, with the result that one of the members of the Council had his father and uncle on the roads- not his aunt (laughter). They had some men over seventy years of age working for the Council, and then it was proposed by one mem- ber to raise all the workmen's wages to 4s. a day. He (the Rector) did not believe in indis- criminate raising of wages, but he believed in paying a fair day's wage for a fair day's work, and so he proposed to have the merits of each man brought before them, and for each one to be dealt with on his merit. This was another reform, and the Surveyor was given the power to engage or dismiss men subject to the Coun- cil's approval (hear, hear). a THE NEW ROAD. The Rector next referred to the proposed main road from Pengam to Ystrad Mynach. This matter, he said, was on foot before the Urban District Council came into authority. This road was designed to bo the great artery from the. top of the parish to Caerphilly. Such an artery would be wanted in the near future, and it was an excellent project. He could see tho time approaching when there would be tramroads running through the valley, and so they had to prepare for what was coming with a view to save expense. To potter here and potter there gave satisfaction to no one. The matter had come before the Council, and they approved of it, and instructed the Surveyor to draw out sketch plans cf the route below the railway. Although certain landowners had of- fered their land for that purpose, Mr. Wm. Edwards asked £ 559 l§s. in order to allow the road to go through a bit of his garden and take down a part of the wall round his house. Then the Council tried for another hit belonging to the Building Club hoping for more favourable terms, but they had asked £ 520. The reason the road had not been commenced was that the people of Hengoed blocked the way (applause), For his part Jie did not see his way to pay so much of the ratepayers' money for Mr. Ed- wards's land. Now the scheme was at a standstill, Dr. Richards had done his level best to gee the road through. Mr. E. Richards did his best. He (the. Rector) did his best (applause). It had been suggested that the lower side was not the best site. He would not say that it was nor it was not; but. he was guided first of all by their engineers, who said that the lower way was the natural oourse for the road, as it would avoid any ups and downs, for there was scarcely a hill. The great landlords were, moreover, will- iiig to give their land; their chairman and Mr. Hanbury had promised land free, whilst the Mackintosh Estate had promised to give land free and to contribute 10s. for every yard constructed. The Chairman of the County Council had said that if the parish would push on with this road the County would help to the greatest extent in their power. There was a. great deal to be said in favour of the road below the railway. Others said, "Bring it along the upper side of the railway." He was prepared to consider that, but lie had made in- quiries about it, and Mr. Hanbury, he was in- formed, would not !et them have an inch of his land above the raihv&y without payment, neither would the Cascade Estate do so. There WM also an alternative route suggested from Bargoed. Bargced was a thriving go-ahead place, where men looked far ahead. Hengoed was the last plaoe in the world for them to think of, and Heagoed had had more opposi- tion from Bargoed than any other place (ap- plause). The alternative scheme was to bring the road past tho villas above the Cascade on to Penpedairheol, in order to join Bargoed Pit with the Penallta Pit. That would put Hengoed on one side, and leave it a little, in- significant place so that Hengoed. for its own sake, had got to look at this road matter from the standpoint of the game which is being play- ed at Bargoed (applause). In regard to the road running along the upper part of the line In he feared that horses being driven along such a road would be frightened by passing trains, and that accidents would result. "Will you in Hengoed," the Rector asked, "let this road come through and improve your property ?" (hear, hear). "You will want men to fight for you when that question comes on. You can un- derstand why Bargoed proposes the alternative route via Penallta to Ystrad Mynach. There will be a huge population at Penallta by and bv. WATER AND SEWERAGE. The Rector next addressed himself to the water quescion from the time when the Glam- organ County Council sent a deputation, and its results, to the rejection of the County scheme by the House of Lords. Under that scheme there would have been no security or obligation to provide Gellygaer with more water whilst it would have made tho parish contribute hand- somely to the supply for the Rhondda and Pontypridd. It was a measure designed for the relief of those districts. What had Gelly- gaer ever got from the County Council? They had lost the charity intended for it. and hun- dreds of acres. The Bill was "chucked" out by the House of Lords because it did not propose to give Gellygaer more water than it had-and it was on his (the Rector's) evidence this fact had; been established (applause).:■hBafc tho; water- matter, although no u'now KRtisfact<ary,. had cosB- siderably improved ;thiough tfie Rhymnoy- and. Abfstf Company;-goiaig typ with: Merthyr at the top and extending their main. Referring to the proposal for a Water Board for the Rhym- ney Valley, the Rector said he had long plead- I ed for unity of action, for the valley was one, but when any effort was being made towards the realisation of such unity then each of the authorities broke away in their endeavour to I get some little aavantago for themselves. Touching upon the sewering question, the Rector said that he had tried to got the matter started with the formation of a Board, and had all through striven for unity, but in this also, doubtless from considerations as to who should be Clerk to the Board, to have prevented such unity of action being realised. He quite agreed that it would be better to get sewage away to the sea-but that would involve an immense expenditure, and was the present generation to do everything for future genera- tions? Let them do what was necessary for the health of the community now, and if a future generation wanted to carry the work still fur- ther to the sea let 'them do it (a.pplause). In regard to joining the Western Valleys power, he asked whether a scheme provided for the Western Valleys alone would be capable of tak- ing in the Rhymney Valley? Would they not need to lay down larger pipes? And would Abertiilerv do this at their own expense? The Rector said that the schemes yet to be carried through would involve a considerable increase in the rates, and this would mean increased rents for thq. cotta-ges of colliers. Such great and important matters wore their own argu- ment against undue haste and hurry. Would they rush in where angels feared to tread? (ap- plause). WORK IN COMMITTEE. | The Rector, towards the end of a speech j which lasted an hour and a haif, referred to } the work done in Committee. The "Merthyr i'lxpress" did not record all that took place even at Council meetings. To report everything that transpired would take up the whole paper, but I the principal iwork was done behind the scenes • in Committee. Dr. Richards, as Chairman of the Health Committee, had rendered service worth L500 a year. He (the Rector}..had at- j tended Council meetings and Coraiaitteo meet- irsgs as regularly as possible, and had often been the only member on the Committee. to turn up. 4-t the Council meetings tome mem- j bers arrived late and went away early, in re- spect to which he read out a resolution passed by a quorum <?f the Council. He had sat for hours at Committee and Council meetings, and tiien driven or walked to Gellygaer without any food from mid-day, and now he was informed that he was to be kicked out (cries of "No, no.") He had tried to do his duty honestly, and he felt that it was hard that he should be opposed on this occasion. Had they not had good mem- bars for Hengoed already? Were not Mr. E. Richards and Dr. J. Richards sufficient for J Hengoed without their trying to deprive GeUy- gacr and Glanynant of their orw poor repro- sentativc? Gellygaer-tlie mother of tho parish! Would Hengoed be a party to that? He was a friend of Hengced. He had fought for it in days gone by. He had fought for the location of the schools there, and for it to be the municipal centre of the parish. But if Hengoed would turn its bad: on one who had only tried to render it service, he would re- mind them again of the danger of the road going through Penallta, and that before three years there would be a large body of inhabit- ants near to Gellygaer Village. Would they by turning him out throw down a challenge to Gellygaer and Glapynant? Was Mr. Ed. Rich- ards in favour of robbing Glanynant and Gelly- gaer of their one representative in order to give Hengoed three? They had not opposed his return at, the last election—but if they did do such a thing he would have to fight for all he was worth next time, for Gellygaer would by that time have the controlling voice. It was not a mere matter of being a member of the Council with him, but the foundation of a great system for the benefit of the administration of the parish was being laid for manv years to come. If they thought it best for the parish to kick him out they would do so. but the end would npt be with the election (loud applause). Dr. J. Richards, in proposing a vote of thanks said that as a member of the Council he muse bear testimony to the great value of the Rec- tor's services—no matter what the question might be, no had tackled the various sub- jects with so much ability as the Rector of Gellygaer. His heart was in the work, and he had done his part without asking a single fa- vour. He hoped that he would go back to have the honour of the chairmanship, which was his due. Under present circumstances, it was an impudent shame to oppose him (applause). —A vote of thanks to the Chairman closed the proceedings.
.0. lJ LEGS FULL OF POISON. A Girl's Obstinate & Inflamed sores Healed only by Zatn-Buk. Badly crippled by poisoned sores on both legs, Misa Nellie Fido, of Atworth, Melksham, Wilts, .was threatened with permanent lameness until Zam-Buk drew out the poison and healed the sores that had defied doctors and ointments. Nellie, who is just 16," Mrs. Fido explained to a reporter, came home two years ago complaining of her legs. They were swollen and inflamed. Thinking that a rest and change might do her good, I sent her to some relatives I at Bristol. Nellie got worse, however, and was sent home again. Her legs had broken into ¡ sores a.nd the girl was very lame and in great pain. I took her at once to the doctor, who said she had blood-poison. Tho doctor's oint- ments seemed to heal the sores, but evidently without extracting the bad matte r. At any rate, the sores soon broke out again, worse than ever. "I next tried chemists' ointments, onlV" to be again disappointed. It really seemed as though Nellie's legs were full of poison, and I felt that until this was drawn away itwoud be useless to I expect the sores to heal properly. But one after another ordinary ointments failed and I learned from experience how useless these cheap prepara- tions are when used fora. severe and obstinate case like Nellie's was. It was not until Zam-Buk was used that my daughter made any improvement. Nellie said that Zam-Buk soothed her pain and irritation. She did not ask for the bandages to be taken off her legs as she had done when t ordinary -ointmeuts were applied. Zam-Buk drew the poison from the sores and thoroughly cleansed them. All inflammation and swelling went down and the troublesome sores closed up. Nellie has gone to work again at a place two miles from Atworth, and she walks there and bapk every day without feeling any pain or dis- comfort. We all marvel at this wonderful Zam-Buk core."
9 •' Gellygaer Bricklayer Sentenced. James Dovine (34), bricklayer, indioted at the Glamorgan Assizes on Monday, for a bestial crime at Gellygaer on February 10th, was sent I to gaol with hafd labour for two months.
Gellygaer District Council Election. THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE LONG HEADS AND SHORT HEADS. Many try to associate municipal or district councils with politics. It is done mainly to lead people off the scent. It is a game which has been playe<^so long that, happily, it is los- ing its power to gull people. Inasmuch as a jus- tice o[ the peace, be he Radical or Tory, has to administer justice according to laws laid down, and as his Toryism or Radicalism is an impotent force on the Bench, so, in the same way, and for the same reasons, councillors in administering the pow srs entrusted to them, caii neither be Liberals nor Tories. If municipal af- fairs are to be run on party lines then the vari- ous candidates might well fall into the two suitable denominations of Short Heads and Long Heads, or short-seeing and far-seeing. existing .Gellygaer Urban District Qotut- "ifornS eijiBttifrit SMi "djiptf1 '■devoted'Vuhgrudgingly thieiir tirhe' and* get'things''oiraii' ih't^lli- gent and just basis that the administration might work smoothly. It has taken a lot of tima, of thought, and of courage. There are amongst them men who clearly have not the gifts of administrators—but they are in-they were put in and will remain in until put out. But taking the Council as a whole, it does not average the ability of Caerphilly. I proclaim this fact publicly, for the press has a public duty as well as a Council. I proclaim it because, in the interests of the district, I want the good made better. And I mention it also because I see every sign of the danger that the present Council may not be succeeded by a better, but by a much inferior one. Inferior in experience, and inferior in ability. SURVEY OF THE CONTESTS. Let me give a breif survey of the contests for seats wliicb are taking place. The Labour Party have already secured one seat by the un- opposed return of Mr. T. J. Williams, for Bed- linog. Mr. Lewis Jenkins, who has held that seat for just eighteen months, being in South Africa, could not contest it. Mr. T. J. Williams secured the seat at the first District Couneil election, but lost it the following March, being defeated by Mr. George Evans. Thus, Laboor, so far, has gained one seat. At Bargoed, there are two vacancies caused by the retirement of Mr. D. S. Jones and Mr. Walter Lewis. The retirement of Mr. Walter Lewis has come as a surprise to most people. It was thought that he would sever his connec- tion with the Dstrict Council in the event of his being elected to the County Council, but it was not understood that he would also retire from the former if unsuccessful in his contest for the County. The withdrawal of Mr. Walter Lewis is more than a Labour loss, it is a general one, and is to be regretted from the standpoint that of the two candidates now being run by the Federation, neither of them has anything like the ability of Mr. Walter Lewis. The conse- quence must be recognised, therefore, as a weakening to that extent of the business in- telligence and experience on the District Coun- cil, and a loss to Bargoed. I am. not an advo- cate of sectional Labour representation, but I hope I can appreciate an intelligent and good representative, and value him as a force for the public good, whether he be run by a Feder- ation, or by Nonconformists, Liberals, or Con- servatives. and, therefore, from the public point of view-from a regard for the interests of the Gellygaer parish as a whole—I regret that Mr. Walter Lewis has not again come forward. The Federation have pretended to take the view that their agent, Mr. Walter Lewis, has enough to attend to without being on Councils, and that it was for this reason they appointed a sub-agent to assist him. Now they have put the sub-agent oil the County Council as well as on the District Council of Bedwellty. For the vacant seats of Mr. W. Lewis and Mr. D. S. Jones they are now running two candidates, whilst there is a third candidate who is connected with colliery work, but not, I understand, a nominee of the Federation. This candidature may possibly have the effect of dividing to some extent the full support that would be given to Mr. Gus Jones. Whether this candidate has been put up with a view (by dividing the support of Mr. Gus Jones) to further the interests of the two Labour candidates, I cannot say, but I view it as an unfortunate circumstance, and hope that all who do not support, from principle or or- der the candidature of the Labourists, will plump on polling day for Mr. Gus Jones, who has proved himself a wholesome and an intelli- gent force in the affairs of Bargoed, and has qualities which should make of him a good, sound ndministrator of local affairs. The Vicar of Pontlottyn having retired—I re- g-ret to learn by ill-hcalth-Mr. Morgan, of the Picton Hotel, and Mr. J. Williams (Labour) are to contest the seat. At Tirphil, Mr, Reea Davies has escaped op- position, although up to the day of nomination there were rumours that he would be opposed. Tirphil, I think, has done well to leave things alone. Mr. Rees Davies has proved himself to be a really good -member of the Council—regu- lar in attendance, impartial in judgment, and a good advocate of anything which he takes up. At Hengoed, Mr. Sidney Jones is opposing the Rector of Gellygaer, and, possibly, more interest will centre round this part of the con- test than any other. From wnat I have said in regard to some of the other wards it would seem as if there were a dearth of suitable men in some p!aoes or at any rate of men caring for municipal honours, so-called. The ques- tion arises why some wards do not invite men from other wards than their own to represent them. The smaller the ward, possifely the greater in number comparatively are the prejudices to be contended against. A good man taken, say from the Hengoed Ward to contest Pontlottyn, I be- lieve would be a gain to that place. The nar- rowness that limits the area of selection i§ a barrier against efficiency of the highest kind. The electorate needs educating on this point. ELECTORS MAKE COUNCILS. There is this fact to bear in mind—a strong and, in a certain sense (the sense of publio in- terests) good man on any public body, however carefully and prudently he may act, is bound, when he seeks re-election, to find much that he intended for the good of all made to tell against him by a few. This will no doubt be verified in the case both of the Rector and his oppo- nent, Mr. Jones. I will give an instance or two. One of the first things which called for the urgent attention of the newly constituted District Council was the overhauling of official departments. Officialdom had been the blight of Gellygaer. Had Gellygaer been a district of London, or any other large city, it would have had its wings clipped long ago. But whether by Parish, Rural, or Urban Council, the elec- tors have always had the product of their own handiwork. They made the Councils, and hav- ing made them, had to bear with them. Look at the men who were sent to administer the affairs of the parish as they appeased before the Auditor at Merthyr, and before the Government Board Commissioner at Hengoed. Now, when the Urban Council came-into bein!r- there were three or four men on the Council who sought to get the permanent departments on an efficient and organised basis. Much of their way was barred by reason of the action of their prede- cessors—who, before they ceased to be the au- thority, hurriedly made permanent arrange- ments respecting certain officials. This prov- ed a great obstacle, and required much effort and tact to surmount. Both the candidate# had an honourable part in carrying out this work, and the electors must vote for them upon their individual merits from past experience. Never was there a time when it was more ne- cessary for the electors to be more prudent and careful in their choice of representatives to serve on the District Council of Gellygaer than to-day. Why?- Because of the great, import- ant and costly matters' which have to be car- ried through—the sewering of the valley, the water question* the isolation hospital, and the matters of a main road—the carrying through gs of things to which the Council is committed. These are questions -which require long-heads. Without in any way disparaging the Rec- tor's opponent so far as his work as chairman of the last Parish Council or anything he may have done in the past, are concerned, the ablest men on the Council have recognised and do recognise that tho Rector has been a great and weighty help in the deliberations of' the

Council. Whether this man is in, and that man is out, tho Council will go on that man is out, tho Council will go on and that man is out, the Council will go on passing their resolutions and resolving on this and resolving on that, but it is just for this reason that the parish should select the ablest men it can. I could say much, very much more, on this subject, for, although I may not know half re- specting the way things are being manipulated, nor of the influenoes being brought to bear in this Hengoed Ward, I know a great deal which causes r/ie to long for a day when loftier mo- tives and worthier methods will be demanded by a high-firincipled and intelligent electorate. RECORDER..
n Honour for an Argoed Hero. ROYAL HUMANE SOCIETY'S MEDAL AND CERTIFICATE. The Primitive Methodist Chapel at Argoed filled ,on Saturday even.ims.witb a Jarge con- gregation of men.. They had met to recognise afid tljfi Jieraic d-aed nf one of their lows and neighbours—Mr._ John Pugb—who, in November last, at the risk of his life, saved that of a fellow-workman. That heroic deed was brought to the notice of the Royal Hu- mane Society, whose bronze medal and certificate were to be thus publicly presented to Mr. Pugh. The Rov. D. Morgan, of the Baptist Church, was voted to the chair. Among those present were Rev. W. M. Edwardes, Dr. and Mrs. Griffiths, Mr. and Mrs. W. O'Connor, Coun. W. Bufton, and Coun. Phillip Lloyd. The Chairman said that was the first meet- ing of such a character ever held at Argoed. They were aware of the object. The certificate of the Royal Humane Society to be presented to Mr. Pugh, he had been (riven to understand, had been signed by the Prince of Wales's own hand (applause). He was glad they had one amongst them who could be termed one of the heroes of the mines (applause). Mr. Pugh was to be rewarded not for what he had sougnt, but for his courage, his love, and the risk he took to help his fellow man. In olden days people were valued for their muscles; in the days of Bacon they were measured by their heads, but to-day they were measured by their generosity, sympathy, and the courage of their hearts (ap- plause). Virtue always demanded her cham- pions, and in Mr. Pugh they had a man willing to face death for his fellow man. The greatness of a man was revealed by his acts, and that night they congratulated Mr. Pugh for that noble deed of his in November, and were glad also to know that he was making progress to- wards convalescence. After a pianoforte solo by Mr. D. J. Rosser and song by Mr. Ben,Williams, Mr. W. O'Con- nor was asked to make the presentation. CERTIFICATE SIGNED BY PRINCE OT WALES. Mr. O'Connor said he was sure they would agree that this was a reddetter day in the his- tory of Argoed. As the Ghairman had remark- ed, there never had been such an occasion be- fore. At the same time, it was only fair to say that probably it was their own fault. Mr. Pugh's was not the first brave deed that had been done in Argoed, and he was pleased to see that people were waking- up to the fact that one of the first acts of their sovereign was to institute a medal for Sávg life. Al- though this was not a King ijdward medal, it was the medal of the Royal Humane Society for saving life at the risk of a person's own life. So great was the interest of H.R.H. the Prince of Wales in this matter that he had with his own hand signed the certificate (applause). Mr. O'Connor then explained the absence of Mr. Tom Richards, M.P. Mr. Richards, he said, W48 one to whom the whole community looked up, and was now entrusted with the interests of hundreds and thousands of men. He had risen from the ranks, and had worked in the mines himself. He (the speaker) thought that he would have been the most appropriate per- son to present that medal, but unfortunately he was unable to be present. They knew why. There was a very grave crisis in the coalfield. Probably, never before had the- issues been more grave and the greatest attention, care and prudence were demanded on the jiart of their representatives to deal with the situation. All they could do was to hope that before mid-night they would get news that peace had been es- tablished in the coalfield for yea.rs to come (applause). The first duty of a member of Par- liament concerned legislation, but there were other duties, which, by common consent, de- volved upon him, and presenting certificates, he thought, was one of them, as such occasions brought him into contact with hia constituents. But Mr. Richards was detained by reason of the gravity of affairs at Cardiff, and a telegram had been received from him to that effect. He (the speaker) had also to apologise for the absence of thr esteemed agent, Mr. Onions, who had sent a similar telegram. Continuing, Mr. O'Connor said the medal of the Royal Humane Society was highly prized throughout the world. The Society was formed in 1774 at the time when certain resuscitative means could be employed in regard to persons supposed to have been drowned, and originally it was for such suc- cess. About twenty years ago the conditions attached to the medal were extended to saving life from foul gases in mines. Mr. O'Connor then pinned the medal on Mr. Pugh's breast amidst loud applause, and remarked, "1 am proud to congratulate you upon having shown yourself worthy of receiving this medal, and also of the fact that it was one of my own workmen who has thus succeeded in getting it. I am sure you will be proud of it, and I hope it will be handed down to your children, and that they will value it, too" (applause). Mr. John Pugh, who was received with hearty applause, said, "I thank you very much for the kind things said, and for the po- sition of honour you have given me to-night. What I did is what every Britisher would do under similar circumstances, and if anything occurs again I hOM I will have the courage again" (applause). BRITISH COURAGE. After a song by Mr. Lewis Evans, Coun. W. Bufton spoke. He at once got upon a large theme: the exemplication of courage in a di- versity of departments. He waa glad, he said, to know that there were men in Argoed who had deserved such recognition—a large num.- ber. But he was glad they had begun to realise the value of heroic courage. They did not al- ways know that they possessed it. It was the product and revelation of circumstances. He believed that no other nation had more of it than the British nation (applause). Courage was not limited to battlefields. It had oppor- tunities to manifest itself in every walk of life. The peasant had it as much as the soldier. As miners, he was glad to know that in these days their occupation was recognised as one of dan- ger, and had the sympathy of the Throne (applause). Mr. Pugh had proved himself a man, and would hand down that recognition to future generations, and which, he hoped, would be an incentive to them to nobly do their duty as he had given them an example (ap- plause.) After a song by Mr. Ben Bowditch, Mr. O'Connor then presented to Mr. Pugh & hand- somely framed illuminated address and cheque as a recognition of his conduct by the owners of the Llanover Colliery. The address was as follows:—"The Bargoed Coal Company, Car- diff, Newport, and Swansea- At a meeting of the Directors of the Company held at their reg- istered offices, 4a, Lion-street, Brecon, on the 2nd February, 1910, the following resolution I was unanimously passed 'Mr. Kirk having reported that he had received from the Royal Humane Society a certificate and medal award- ed to John Pugh for saving life at Llanover Colliery, it was resolved that this be presfented I to him with expression of the Company's ap- preciation of hia brave act, and a cheque for £ 5.' Signed, G. Whitley Cobb, chairman; J. I ç. Kirk, managing director; George Tudor, secretary." I. On receiving these, Mr. Pugh said: "I hope you; will forgive me. I lira not Lloyd George; but I thank you for the way you have treated me" (applause). Mr. O'Connor said he thought the event of November last, was one which ought to be marked in the history of the Coal Company, and for that reason brought the subject be- fore them with this result. One of the brightest fejit.ures about the South Wales miners was their willingness to face any danger (applause). The Royal Humane Society's Certificate was read as follows:—Royal Humane Society, in- stituted 1774, supported by voluntary con- tributions. Patron, H.M. the King; vioe- patron, H.R.H. thja Duke of Connaught, K.G. president, H.R.H. the Prinoe of Wales, K.G.

He, however, con- tinued to work with the aid of a truss, but had been totally incapacitated from work since Nov- ember.

He ga e an award for the respondents,
