JMit¡¡ ¡¡;t f1 Dr. rnn¡:11 nj¡;S Hifjà ilnnnnl Meeting of iIaJyhont District The meeting of the Talybo^ District of the Manchester Unity of Odo fellows was held in the Glancing Lodge Room, Town Hall, Talgarth, on I the 8th inst- when the D.G.M Bro. W. j Turner, Glasbury, presided. There were also present Bro. T. Morgan. Talybont, i treasurer P.P.G.M. J. Pritchard, Tal- j garth, corresponding secretary and the J 'following delegates :—Talybont, P.O. John Price, P.G. W. Evans, and N.G. D. Jones Peterstone. P.P.G.M. B. James. P.P.G.M. R. Pritchard. and P.G. J. Price Talgarth, P.P.G.M. Frod Mor- gan, P.G. C. James, and P.G. T. Phillips: Glasbury, P.P.G.M. Geo. Stanley (sec.) and W. Morgan Camden, P.P.G.M. J. Powell, P.P.G.M. T. Davies. The Corresj >onding Secretary presented a satisfactory report on the state of the district funds, and it was unanimously resolved to place f40 to the dedosit account and C 100 to the current account. The sickness report showed an increase lor ine year iyio on an the iodgo aiiu, the State insurance accounts, and that owing to the influenza epidemic a con- siderably larger amount had been paid in sickness benefit in 1918 than the previous year yet the adminstration accounts of all the lodges gave a substantial balance. The report was considered to be very satisfactory in view of the fact that over 200 of the members are away on active service, which means a reduced income. It was resolved not to send a delegate to the A.M.C. at Douglas this year. P.P.G.M. Fred Morgan and P.P.G.M. R. Pritchard were appointed to audit the past year's district accounts. The Corresponding Secretary reportsd that he had secured the consent of the Swindon Corporation to pay 5 per cent. interest on the Talybont District's in- vestment, and was complimented on his action in this matter and on his report. The delegates and officers afterwards adjourned to the Castle Hotel and were entertained to an excellent tea by the Glanenig Lodge. Bro. Fred Morgan presided. After tea a number of speeches were made containing suggestions for the future, and particularly for the time when the soldier members return.—Bro. T. Morgan, Talybont, proposed, and Bro. R. Pritchard, Peterstone, seconded, a vote of thanks to the members of the Glanenig Lodge for their kindness and to Mrs Jones, the hostess and the Chair- man and Corresponding Secretary re- sponded.—The singing of Auld Lang Syne" and God Save the King" brought a very pleasant evening to a close. The next meeting is to be held at Brecon.

Llangattock and Housipg. LORD GLANUSK'S COUNTY COUNCIL PROGRAMME. A Parish meeting was held at the Miles Memorial. Llangattock, on 4 Thursday, to obtain the views of the inhabitants with reference to the provision of houses for the wovlfitic? clnnrlpv fb Hf) u;;¡i 110' Act. Lord Glanusk presided. .J Mr Gwiiym C. James said the Local Government Board had written to the Rural District Council asking for inform- a don, hence that meeting to decide whether houses were needed in Llan- gattock, and if so, how many ? At Brynmawr 300 houses were to be built, • and at "ta.Vbw "V ale i 000. This would mean the displacement of families about 20 householders at Llangattock worked in the industrial districts. Before they were called upon to build for those who worked in other parishes, they ought to build for those who worked in their own parish. In his (the speaker's) young days it was tlte ambition of a collier to build a house. Later, Mr Keir Hardie said this was a wrong policy, because, if not burdened with a house, the collier could, iu case of a strike or lock-out, clear out to some other area. Then ciubs were formed for the building of houses. In large industrial areas houses were no doubt necessary. But why Llangattock ? If required, they should be built by private enterprise and not by rates. They were told that houses were badly wanted at Llanelly Hill. Before the war a house could be built for C200, which would mean JE400 in these days. If 10 were built on Llanelly Hill, not Llanelly but the whole rural district area would have to bear the burden, and Llan- gattock would have to pay its quota. Supposing they borrowed for 10 houses the sum of 94,000. To repay this would mean a 2d. rate, and this would be only as far as Llanelly Hill was concerned. He was not in favour of building under this Act, but that it should be done if necessary by private enterprise. It was proposed by Mr Geo. Evans, and seconded by Mr A. Lewis, That this meeting, after due discussion of the Housing of the Working Classes Act, considers that no further houses are re- quired in this parish."—This was carried unanimously. Mr Walter Davies called attention to the insufficient supply of water on the Ffawyddog, and a resolution was passed to call the attention of the Rural Dis- trict Council to the matter. Lord Glanusk said that in all pro- bability there would be a County Council election this year. He was going to ad- vise the Council tp try and get a great many things nationalised, including the police, education, roads, and institutions. What arguments there were against it he did not know. The effect (if it ever came off) would be, more or less, to do away with rates and put them on to the taxes in other words, on the shoulders of those able to bear it. Mr Gwilym James moved a vote of thanks to Lord Glanusk, at the same time welcoming him back.—This was seconded by Mr W. H. Rumsey, and carried unanimously.

BRECON TOWN COUNCIL. Electric Light Feeler." At the monthly meeting of the Brecon Town Council on Tuesday there were present the Mayor (Mr W. F. Parry deWinton), Councillors C. W. Best, E. M. Meredith, Evan Morgan, J. D. D. Evans, G. T. Jones and W. Williams. TOWN'S HEALTH RIGHT AGAIN. The Medical Officer (Dr. Rees) re- ported that during December six death.s were registered, equal to an annual rate of 12*1 per 1,000. The influenznJ epidemic had completely subsided, only a few isolated cases having occurred since his last report. The town was free from any form of zymotic disease and there was a marked absence of the chest ail- ments so common at this period of the year. The Mayor A very satisfactory report. I Councillor Jones Something to be proud of. WANTED AN OPTION. Mr J. H. Hall, of Glasgow, wrote asking for a twelve months' option on the right to supply electric light and power in the borough and district,, offering to meet the Council, and stating I that it was intended to form a public limited liability company and apply for a provisional order. I The Mayor He has probably sent a similar letter to other towns. On the motion of Councillor Jones, seconded by Councillor Morgan, and supported by Councillor Meredith, it I was received, without pledge of granting ) an option, to offer Mr Hall an interview, I' when "he could explain his proposals and satisfy the Council generally as to the j bona fides ther^pf." I In reply to Councillor Meredith, j Town Clerk (Mr Hyatt Williams) stated that the existing public lighting contract with the Gas Company was for six years from January, 1915. i j » SLLOH 1IOUKS WELL KEPT. Mr Rowlands, inspector under the Shops Act, reporting on the year 1918. j stated that he had had little trouble as regards meal hours, &c., for shop assistants, as most of the larger estab- llsmnents closed entirely at mid-day and j the closure at 7 p.m. brought them well within the legal working hours for the j week. He had no complaint to make against the employers generally,* who It seemed desirous of acting up to the spirit of the Act, neither had he received I any complaint from the shop assistants. t | Councillor Jones That speaks well I for the tradespeople generally and for I the good feeling between employers and assistants. I "CHECK" TO NEW LABOUR COUNCIL. j The Public Works Committee reported ¡ j thct application had been made for the I discharge from the army of the four j Corporation workmen now serving. A j letter had been received from Mr H. G. Jones, of Conway street, together, with a resolution of the Brecon Trades and j Labour Council, relevant to the housing question, and the committee directed I. that the communication be replied to. The water meter registers for the quarter | showed that the B. & M. Ry. Co.'s goods dept. had consumed 3,285,000 | gallons and the Barracks 585,000 gallons j [ during the quarter. j Councillor Jones described the refer- ence to housing as very vague and asked j j if anything was decided. ) I The Mayor said the reply stated that; the Town Council had the matter in hand and were quite awake to the im- portance of the question that there I were two problems, one the erection of new houses and the other the alteration of houses now in existence, but that I nothing could be done at the present moment as there were neither materials nor workmen. Councillor Jones* Is it to be left in abeyance indefinitely ? The Mayor No, the Local Govern- ment Board are issuing some further instructions, and as soon as they are in the hands of members it is proposed to call a special meeting to consider them.
Penoyre Red Cross Hospital. To the Editor of the COUNTY TIMES. Sir,—We wish to offer our warmest I thanks to the kind donors of the follow- ing gifts :—7 gallons of milk and 1 h lbs. butter from Mrs McClintock, who has also most generously given all the coal, wood and acetylene gas used in the hospital cigarettes, the staff of the Star Supply Co.; a large hamper of apples, Mr Jones, The Gaer woolwork belts, Mrs McClellan 84 eggs, per Miss Llewellyn Davies, from the districts of Devynock, Sennybridge, Senny and Cray. The sale of the patients' work held at Christmas time in the shop kindly lent by Miss Maund produced the sum of 924 17s 3d for their tobacco and games fund. This hospital is now very soon to be closed, so will those kind friends who have generously lent things for the use of the patients please let us know by Monday, the 20th, if they wish them returned ? If not they will become the property of the demobilization committee who will use them elsewhere for the relief of suffering. LUCY MAYBERY, Jan. 14th, 1919. Commandant.
f FOOD STUFFS ORDER. Heavy Fine at Llanwrtyd Wells. At Llanwrtyd Wells Police Court on I Thursday-before Dr. Black Jones (in I the chair), ..Commander Wilson, and Messrs J. T. Evans, J. E. Carey and B. Davies—Rees Jones, Sancyrte Farm, nr. I Llanwrtyd, was charged with an offence under the Waste of Food Stuffs Order on I November 7th, 1918. Mr R. J. Owen (Builth Wells) appeared to prosecute on behalf of the Builth Rural District Food Control Committee, and defendant, who pleaded not guilty, was represented by Mr E. P. Careless, Llandrindod Wells. William Hopkins, Cross Inn, gave evidence to the effect that he sold a rick evidence to the effect that he sold a rick of corn to the defendant in March, 1917, for 124 and Jones promised immediate removal, providing the necessary permit could be obtained by witness. Witness v/as, however, informed that a permit was not necessary and defendant paid him the "binding" shilling with a further promise to remove the rick at once. In the meantime witness had been offered more money for it, but could not sell because the shilling had bound the bargain. In May last defendant paid witness's wife J615 in part payment for the rick and this money was the same week deposited at the bank (bank book produced). Mrs Hopkins, wife of last witness, corroborated. Police-Sergt. Lewis, Llanwrtyd Wells, stated that he visited Cross Inn farm and saw a rick of corn very much dam- aged by rats and mice, and the thatch in a very poor condition. He afterwards saw defendant, who admitted buying the rick on the 16th October, 1917. Defendant, on oath, stated that he never bought the rick from Hopkins; he had only spoken to him about it and the necessary permit could not be obtained by Hopkins. In. cross-êxamination by L Mr Owen, defendant said he paid the £ 15 to Mrs Hopkins as a loan to pay the Radnorshire Coy. as they were pressing her. As to the shilling, it was not a "b;i(li-tig shilling," it was in respect of a cat which he had previously taken away. The Bench inflicted a fine of .a.- _t.
_n_- ISUILTH WKLL3. Social Club.—A meeting of the com- mittee of the Social Club was held on Friday, Dr. Black Jones presiding. The Secretary (Mr S. Thomas) reported the receipt of £"1 17s 10d as a-donation from the receipts of the visitors' eisteddfodau held last summer also Y,3 198 Sd from whist drives. It was decided to hold three more ''drives." Mr J. G. Eadie pointed out that soldiers were not taking much advantage of the facilities offered them. Perhaps the fact was not well known that any man serving or who had served with the colours was entitled to free use of the Social Club, whether residing in the town or in the rural district of Builth Wells. do idie rs Returned.—Mr Jonathan Davies, of Belle Vimv, Llanfihaugel- Bryn-Pabuan, wbo volunteered for ser- vice in 1915, has been "demobilised" and sent home, after three years' service on the Western Front. He took part in the battles of Vimy Ridge and Pilkem Ridge as well as other important engage- ments. When returning home from Germany, outside Cologne he met Morgan, Pcncaerhelm, and other boys from Builth district who joined the colours last* summer. Two of his brothers also joined the colours and one was killed about two years tgo.-Pte. Ivor Watkins, who joined the colours last summer from Rhydgwillim, and has been in training at Pembroke Dock, has been released for three months for agricultural work.—Mr George William Thompson, Lower cottage. Howey, who volunteered for active service in 1914, has returned home. In 1916, with the 13th Batt. of the Royal Welsh Fusilieis, he went through some very hard fighting in Mametz Wood, and in September, 1916, he was wounded on the Somme. He was also in the second taking of Mametz Wood. Light Railway Wanted.—It is hoped that the Chamber of Trade will bring to the notice of Government the importance of connecting Builth Wells and New Radnor by a light railway. The matter is of great importance to the tradespeople of Builth Wells, as the future prosperity of the markets and fairs depends upon the opening up of the rural districts.
Trecastle Notes and News. [By Novus HOMO], The late Mr John Evans, of Ffyuonwen Farm, Aber Valley, near Talybont-on- Usk, whose body was laid alongside those of his parents in Cwmwysg burial ground last Thursday, was a native of this locality, bred and born at Llwynmeurig Farm. where his parents resided, and which is still occupied by his brothers atid sisters. The deceased left this locality some years ago, for Ffynonweu Farm, where he proved an enterprising and prosperous farmer. He was a kind neighbour and a friend to all deserving assistance in any shape or form, and the esteem in which he was held was shown by the large number of people from the Aber Valley who accompanied his re- mains the long distance to the place of interment. Details of the funeral are given under the Talybont heading.
