Porth. Special services in connection with the Primitive Methodist Church, Hannah Street, were held on Sunday last, when the -.ev. T. D. Dodsworth, Cheltenham and Porth; and the Rev. J. T. Davies, Cymmer (W.C.) Chapel, delivered power- ful sermons to large congregations. On Monday afternoon, a social tea" came off, followed in the evening by a public meeting, over which Mr.. J. Powell Davies presided. The speakers were the Revs. T. D. Dodsworth, E. Turp, and Mr. W. .t1. Edwards. General satisfaction is felt and expressed locally at the result of last Friday's deliberations at the Council meeting with regard to the head post office. Mr. Wm. Ivans' (Thomas and Evans) lucid state- ment of the claims of Porth to prece- dence, as will be seen in another column, is on a par with his usual modus operandi when anything is delegated to him. The Porth Chamber of Trade, collectively, has exerted itself in no uncertain way in the matter, and the beaming countenances of the members, from the president (Alder- man W. H. Mathias, J.P.) down, were a true index to their feelings of. triumphant satisfaction. It was a battle royal, and fought with much skill by the three sets of opponents—or rival claimants. A well-known and highly respected inhabitant has passed away in the person of Mr. John Williams, Blosse Terrace, Porth. The deceased was an old em- ployee of Messrs. Insoles at the Cymmer COiiiery. He died on Tuesday, the 11th inst., and up to the preceding Thursday followed his employment. He caught a severe cold; pneumonia followed, and death supervened. He was interred on Saturday at Llethrddu, the funeral being large and representative. No local body of musicians is more widely appreciated than the Cymmer Col- liery Brass Band, for the reason that it is never approached in vain for help by way of acting for charity or religious calls. The band's president, Mr. Thos. Griffiths. M.E., J.P., never withholds his consent, and Bandmaster Geo. F. Martyn always responds with alacrity. Hence it is that we feel confident that the series of recitals which the band is now organising to defray the cost of a complete set of new instruments, and which is to take place early in March, will meet with a generous patronage at the hands of an appreciative and a grateful public. Crime and Anarchv are dealt with in Monarchs and their Murderers in this copy of the LEADER. Secure your next week's copy by ordering early. Good thrilling reading in store.
