i Cleanliness or Godliness ? Sunday Cleaning of Streets I Protracted Discussion at Council Meeting. ¡ The question of the proposed Sunday cleaning of streets1 was the subject of a protracted discussion at the monthly meeting "of the Rhondda District Council on Friday. The matter was brought for- i ward by a recommendation of the Roads as to the payment to be made for the work, together with four letters protesting j against the proposed innovation from various local Jfree Church Councils. The recommendation of the Roads Com- !j mittee was twofold, and was as follows: (1) That "the roadmen be paid at double J the usual rate for the time worked in « cleaning the streets on Sunday mornings, and (2) that during the first month the Inspectors take particulars showing the time taken to clean the streets in the various sections of the district allotted to the roadmen, and report thereon to this Committee." The letter from the Treherbert local Free Church Council recorded a resolu- tion passed at a recent meeting of that Council, strongly protesting) against the work of cleaning the roads on the Sabbath Day, adding that the Council were grieved to find that so much Sabbath Day desecra- tion already existed in the Valley, and imploring the District Council not to sanction another breach of the sacred day. Similar letters were received from the Pentre, Pontygwaith, and Mid-Rhondda Fach sections" of the Free Church Council, emphatically condemning the introduction of Sunday labour, whilst a, fourth letter of protest from the Penygraig: Free Church Council was handed in by Coun- cillor Tom Evans. Councillor Wight moved that, inasmuch as the only question arising from the minutes of the Roads Committee was the payment of roadmen for this work, the letters be declared out of order. This matter, said Councillor Wight, was brought forward by the Council, and the Roads Committee were only carrying out the resolution passed by the Council. It seemed to him that the Roads Committee were between the devil and the deep sea." The matter had been discussed at some length at the last meeting: of the Council, and the Council had declined to withdraw from the position they had taken in the matter. Personally, he did not say that the arrangement was the best possible that could be arrived at, but the Council had decided by a, large majority that the course they had taken was the best way to get out of the diffi- culty. Dr. Thomas moved that the actual work of Sunday labour be deferred for three months. He believed that they should approach this matter from a seasonable standpoint, as it would wound the sus- ceptibilities of a, large number of people in every Ward. If there was another way to get clean streets on Sundays, the Council ought to be prepared to consider the matter. An effort was now being made to get tradesmen to agree to earlier closing, which would be beneficial to the shop assistants, and which might also relieve the Council of this business. He had many friends who would feel it very keenly indeed if they persisted in this matter. Councillor W. T. Jones said that he wished to second Dr. Thomas' motion. There was a strong; feeling upon this ques- tion he continued, and he could not understand why the Roads Committee were in such a hurry to proceed with it. When this matter was raised a month > ago, he strongly protested against it, and the Roads Committee were directed to reconsider it. In view of the prevailing feeling, he believed it would be wise to defer the matter for three months. The Treorchy Free Church Council were already endeavouring to secure earlier closing, and by deferring the matter they would give the Free Church Council an opportunity to achieve this end, which would not only be a boon and a blessing to many, but might enable' the Council to have' the work done on Saturday nights. j. Councillor Tom Evans: If we adjourn this matter for three months, what guarantee have we that the Free Church Council will have succeeded in securing earlier closing? Councillor Thos./Thomas said that the feeling in favour of earlier closing was growing, and he believed that, if the Council adjourned the matter for three months, there was a likelihood that early closing would be an accomplished fact. Councillor Tom Evans: Some of us happen to know how this feeling is manu- factured. The only point I don't like is that the.Council, having passed this reso- lution at the request of the ratepayers, should, at the behest of a few, withhold their hands, and do nothing until these have succeeded in having the earlier closing of shops on Saturday nights. I don't want Sunday labour, but it seems to me that we should carry out our reso- lution as soon as ever, and that when this earlier closing of shops has been accomplished we shall be prepared to do away with Sunday labour, and have the work done on Saturday nights. If the offence does exist, it has not been removed, and there is, as much need to have it removed now as when we were first petitioned for that purpose. Councillor Daniel Evans said that if the shops were closed on Saturday nights at 10 o'clock, Saturday nights would not be the best time to do this work. Councillor J. D. Williams, in supporting the action of the Committee, said that if the whole of the Valley was consulted upon the question they would uphold the hands of the Council. He, therefore, moved that the Council should go forward with the work. Councillor Walter Williams said that he objected to the sentimental of Coun- cillor J. D. Williams. If the churches of the district, he maintained, were asked to give an oninion upon the matter, that opinion would be the same as that con- tained in the letters which had been read. He did not wish to find fault with the Roads Committee in regard to this work, but they now possessed some indications of the feeling of the people upon the platter, whereas when the Committee were instructed to consider this question, they had no such indications.

Treorchy. The Rev. Elvet Lewis, M.A., London, delivered a very. interesting lecture at Bethlehem (O.M.) Chapel on Thursday evening (under the auspices of the Y.P.S.), on Y Pren a welodd Peredur." Mr. Evan Davies presided over a large gathering. A debate took place at the Treorchy Literary Society last week between Messrs. R. C. Austin and T. D. Griffiths, on Pulpit v. Press." Dr. Geo. Armstrong and Mr. Jack Thomas acted as chairmen. Both sides were much appreciated and freely discussed. The following took part in the discussion: -Messrs. J. Davies- Evans (dentist), J. T. Short, D. Rees, W. J. Jenkins, E. Pugh, W. D. Evans, Woodliffe, Theodore, and Goronwy. After the discussion, a vote resulted in favour of the Press. A vote of thanks was accorded the leader in the debate and chairmen. Previous to the opening of the debate, it was deemed necessary that the holding of tue whist drive be reconsidered, owing to the departure of the president, Dr. G. Armstrong, and after. some discussion it was decided that a. farewell" social" be held on the 26th inst., and the whist drive" be suspended. The doctor ex- pressed his thanks in return to, the mem- bers of the Society, and said that it was very gratifying that they considered him in such a manner.
Gilfach Goch. A successful social in connection with Bryn Seion Chapel was held, the vestry, where refreshments! were provided by the lady members, being tastefully decorated. The guests numbered about 250. The fol- lowing ladies and gentlemen assisted at the tables :—Mrs. Gibbon, Miss Morgans, Miss Webber, Miss Jones, Misses E. and S. J. Palmer, Miss M. Thomas, Miss Davies, Miss Davies and Miss Richards, Messrs. Charles Bryant, Thomas, T. Evans, J. P. Evans and D. P. Jones. After all had done justice to an excellent spread, a miscellaneous meeting was held, under the presidency of Mr. Richard Miles. A very pleasant evening was spent, and a substantial sum realised, which will be handed over to the church in aid of the apparatus fund. On Tuesday evening of last week, a large number assembled at Hope Chapel to partake of a. sumptuous social tea, pro- vided by the members of the church. A large number of guests turned up, and a very pleasant evening was spent. We congratulate Mr. D. T. Jenkins, of Llantrisant Council School, and Mr. A. Evans, of Llandyfodwg Council School, in passing the Certificate Examination of the Board of Education.

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Rhondda Leader." Sir,—It is evident the present is a time of anxiety to all who have the highest welfare of our young people at heart. Though the Revival brought with it an inestimable blessing, and though our public-houses were for the time practically forsaken, the old order of things is fast re-establishing itself, and the public-house is as full and its trade is as flourishing as ever. It must be a, source of gratification to many that our United Temperance League is not blind to this state of affairs, and is already busy in organising a great tem- perance campaign throughout the two Rhonddas. I am sure we wish the movement the most unqualified success, but if the cam- paign be on the old lines, the outlook is decidedly unpromising. The almost uni- versal retort has become We don't want any more temperance lecturing; give us a place we can go to. If you are really anxious to help; us, show it in a practical way." As the result of several committee meetings, representative of Pentre, Ton, and Ystrad, it has been decided to move in this direction, and we appeal to all friends, both inside and outside these dis- tricts, for financial aid and practical sympathy. The mode of procedure adopted will be understood from the following appeal:- 15, Ynysgau Street, Ystrad-Rhondda, "March, 1908. Dear Sir or Madam, "RE PROPOSED YOUNG MEN'S CHRIS- TIAN ASSOCIATION FOR PENTRE, TON AND YSTRAD-RHONDDA. A representative Committee has several times met for the purpose of form- ing a. Young Men's Christian Association for the district, as it was felt that an institution of this kind was urgently needed for the young people of the neigh- bourhood. The Committee were of opinion that if application were made to all classes for financial assistance, the same would meet with a sympathetic and substantial re- sponse and it was, therefore, decided that collectors should be appointed to visit personally the different classes in the locality for the purpose of soliciting donations, and also promises of annual subscriptions. The Committee would feel deeply grateful if you would become an annual subscriber. If you cannot, see your way to do, so, would you kindly give a donation for the purnose? I am, on behalf of the Committee, Yours truly, "J. E. HUGHES, Hon. Secretary (pro tem.) The secretary will be pleased to receive promises of annual subscriptions or donar- tions from anyone desirous of helping the above movement.—Yours, &c., J. E. HUGHES. District Council Election. To the Editor of the Rhondda Leader." Sir,—The correspondent who wrote in your issue of last week regarding the election in No. 7 Ward is evidently not in touch with tha public affairs of the locality. He either knows nothing of Liberal politics, or has his eyes closed to the public actions of public men? To assert that Councillor David Rowlands is- an eleventh hour convert to Liberal principles is a flagrant display of ignorance. There are too many sleepers in this Ward, who awake in the twelfth hour to pose as authorities on other people's political views. This correspondent is one of these, and it is hoped he won't be so sleepy in the future. Is he aware of Mr. Rowlands' actions regarding the education question? lias he followed his doings since 1902? Does he know he was treasurer of the local Educational Revolt Fund? Is he ignorant of the fact that he voted for petitioning the Government regarding the taxation of ground rents and land values? Did not Mr. Lewis Hopkins—" that ardent Liberal and sound critic "—pronounce his political views as satisfactory when he appeared before the Executive of the Liberal and Labour Association? To describe Mr. Rowlands as an eleventh hour convert in the face of the only answers that can be given to these questions, is sheer nonsense. It is evident from this that Mr. Rowlands is a Liberal of at least six years' standing, and even if it be ad- mitted that it was in 1902 he was con- verted, it is nothing to be ashamed of, for it is rather an indication of greatness. Men often change their political views, and are only victimised for so doing by the most narrow-minded of the people. This writer is suffering from a delusion as to who represents this Ward on the Council. He says that while every other part of the Ward was directly represented on the Council the residents of Williams- town thought they should have a repre- sentative living in their district. It would be interesting to know whom he considers the representative for Dinas. If, as he seems to think, each member represents the district in which he resides, Mr. Tom Evans is a member for Tylacelyn, Mr. Dd. Rowlands for Penygraig, and Mr. L. P. Griffiths for Porth. Even according: to this method of allotting the seats, which is at least childish, it is inconceivable. why the only member in the middle of the Ward should be opposed by the very people who have always rallied to the support of one üving; in another. It would be much more consistent on their part to withdraw Mr. Hopkins from the field, and uphold the prestige of their Association by electing their old and faithful member. For if they think it necessary for their welfare to have a resident representative from Williamstown, why not wait twelve months, and contest the only member who resides in another Ward. To deprive the Council of the services, of one of its best and oldest members for no other reason but to have a, member from Williamstown would be simply ridiculous. This correspondent also asserts that Mr. Rowlands' supporters set the ball rolling rather too hasty, and in a most ;untactful manner." This is a charge which has no foundation but being that Mr. Rowlands is the nominee of the Liberal and Labour Association, it undoubtedly easts a, reflec- tion upon the members of that Society. Such being the case, it is only right that the public, should know the particulars of the candidate's adoption. This Associa- tion has not long been formed; but there is no doubt that had it existed several years ago, Mr. Rowlands would have then been a, member. One of the objects of this Society is to see that Liberal prin- ciples are represented on municipal bodies. So in accordancei with that aim Mr. Rowlands (being a member) was called before the UonmiiW, wad after satisfying = them regarding his political views, a public meeting was held under the auspices of the Association, in which he was adopted as candidate. Those are the particulars, and the charge of being hasty and un- tactful is evidently without foundation.— I am A MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATION.

this it would be. better for them to take time and pause before putting the recom- mendation of the Committee into force. Their feelings in regard to the cleaning of, the streets were identical with the time when the matter was first brought before the notice of the Council. The recommendations of the Committee were that the district should be divided into five sections. Section 1 would comprise Treherbert, Treorchy, Cwmparc, Pentre, Ton and Gelli. Ten men would be em- ployed and five handcarts, and, as far as the Roads Committee could see, the work could be done in two hours. Assuming, therefore, that the work commenced on Saturday evenings at 10 o'clock, it would be finished by 12. He, therefore, sug- gested that the work should be done on Saturday nights. Councillor Wight maintained, in oppo- sition to the last speaker, that the Coun- cil had acted in this matter upon repre- sentations from the public, and read the minutes of the December meeting of the Council, recording a letter from the Mid- Rhondda Chamber of Trade, asking the Council to take steps to remove the nuisance. The Chairman (Councillor Ed. Jones): There is nothing said in those minutes about the time. The question now before the Council is the time that the work should be done. Councillor Tom Evans This is only a subterfuge to delay the matter. Councillor Dd. Williams said that they did not advocate Sunday labour, but clean streets (hear, hear). If they started the work at 10 o'clock on Saturday nights, the streets would be, as bad as ever by 11, whilst by the time the roadmen would have finished their work and cleaned them- selves it would be far on into Sunday morning. Councillor Tom George supported the suggestion of Councillor Walter Williams, whilst Councillor Tom Evans maintained that, without belittling the Free Church Councils, they should not attach more importance to their sentiments than to those of the Chambers of Trade. Dr. Tribe said that the vast majority of the Rhondda people wanted clean streets, and that if the work could not be done on Saturday evenings, to have it done on Sundays. Councillor J. D. Williams said that there was a. very strong feeling in Mid- Rhondda in favour of clean streets, and he had not received a. single complaint from any person against the proposals of the Council. Eventually, the motion of Councillor Tom Evans that the recommendations of the Roads Committee be carried out forthwith, and that the question be re- considered with the object of having the work done on Saturday nights as soon as the early closing of shops movement had become an accomplished fact, was car- ried, seven only voting in favour of Dr. Thomas' motion to defer the matter for three months.
