GLAMORGAN COUNTY SURVEYOR. It is with deep regret that we record the death of Mr. T. Lloyd Edwards, Bryngwyn, Bridgend, surveyor to the Glamorgan County Council, which occurred at his residence on Tuesday morning in his sixty-fourth year. Mr. Edwards had been ill for'several months, suffering from cardiac dropsy and heart failure. The course of his illness fluctuated several times within the past few weeks he seemed on the point of death, but each time he rallied, and hopes were beginning to be entertained thai, he might yet recover at least a portion of his former health. Finally the end came-quite unexpectedly. In the earlier stages of his illness he was attended by Dr. Wyndham Randall. who has recently been indisposed himself, and subsequently by Dr. E. M. Spencer and Dr. Howells. Mr. Edwards leaves a widow, two daughters, and three sons, the eldest son being Mr. Arthur Edwards, architect and surveyor, Bridgend. The second son, Mr. Tom Edwards, is em- ployed in the county surveyor's office, Bridg- end. Mr. Lloyd Edwards belonged to a well- known North Wales family, his mother being the famous Maid of Llangollen. He was a brother of Mr. Frank Edwards. M.P for Radnorshire, and a brother-in-law of the Bishop of St. Asaph. His late sister, whose death occurred some months ago, was the owner and proprietress of the Hand Inn, in North Wales, a famous hostelry, where up to the present a harpist plays in the hall. Mr. Edwards served his articles as an engineer at the Great Western Railway Company's Works at Swindon. and Mrs. Edwards, the widow, is a lady from that neighbourhood, being the daughter of the late Mr. Henry Appleby. The first public appointment held by Mr. Edwards was that of surveyor to the Bangor Local Board, and he was subse- quently appointed surveyor to the town of Aberdare, which position he retained until his appointment under the Glamorgan County Council seventeen years ago on the creation of that body. While at Aberdare. Mr Edwards discharged his duties with great credit to himself, and he supervised numerous important schemes, including an extensive sewerage scheme and a water scheme. He became highly esteemed in that district, and the greatest regret was manifested by the in- habitants when he left to take up his new duties as county surveyor. He held this position until the time of his death, perform- ing his duties in an exceedingly painstaking and conscientious manner. He had the en- gineering charge of an extensive and popu- lous area, and supervised an immense amount of public improvements, especially in the widening of the main roads, and .gave close personal attention to details. He became a highly valued official of the county, and shortly after the commencment of his ill- ness the County Council passed a vote of con- dolence with him, and in the speeches then delivered by the chairman (Mr. J. Blandy Jenkins) and vice-chairman (Alderman T. J. Hughes), it was recognised that the break- down in the health of Mr. Edwards was largely due to the close and strenuous appli- cation to his important office. He was a member of the Municipal and County En- gineers' Association and of the Association of County tourveyors. Personally he was the most genial and kindly of men. and he was held in high respect by the public throughout the county, and was beloved by a large circle of friends throughout the Principality. He took a deep interest in Church matters, and his death involves a great loss to St. Illtyd's Church. Newcastle, of which he had held the office of Churchwarden for many years. He was always ready to extend support to any deserving cause.

TWO MEN KILLED OK THE RAILWAY. A terrible double railway fatality occurred about 3 a.m. on Tuesday on the Great Wes- tern Railway near Gilfa.ch Goch. two men. John Phillips (27). single. Marion-street, Clydach Vale, and John Bowen, married (46), Upper Marion-street. Clydach Vale, being run over and killed. The driver 01 an ex- cursion train felt a jerk, and fearing that something untoward had happened sent the stoker to make a search, and the latter was startled to find the bodies of twO two men in a badly mutilated state. It is known that the men set out together on Monday night to walk over the mountain to Gilfach Goch for the purpose of gathering mushrooms at dawn. The theory is that the men took a rest on the railway, believing that no fur- ther train would pass that night, and fell asleep, being caught in their slumber by the train. Bowen was a well-known local foot- baller. having played for istrad Stars and Penygraig. He was also an expert boxer. and had taken part in a number of glove con- tests. The bodies were found about 4.15 on Tues- day morning. A few yards away, in a deep sleep on the bank, was a companion of the two men who had been killed. Thomas Jones. of 42 Upper Marion-street. Clydach Yale: quite oblivious to the terrible fate that had overtaken his comrades. j.t was decided not to disturb the sleeping man nor touch the two frightfully mutilated bodies until the ar- rival of the police. who were at once notified at Gilfach Goch. Sergeant John George, ac- companied by P.C. Williams and Dr. Mc- Caughey. were quickly on the scene. The bodies of Phillips and Bowen presented a sickening spectacle. One of Philli ps's legs was 10 yards away from the bodv. while the other was attached to the body by only a slight strip of flesh. The skull was smashed, and the brain scattered about the perman- ent way. and his hands were also terribly in- jured. Both Bowen s legs had been run over just above the knee and were practically completely amputated. But. most gruesome of all. Bowen's face had been sliced com- pletely off. and for a while it could not be found. Eventually it was discovered a few yards away with all the features intact, in- cluding the eyes. After a cursory examin- ation of the awful scene. Sergt George roused Thomas Jones, who all the while had been sleeping heavily on the grass on the bank. Jones awoke dazed and excited, and com- menced to struggle violently with the ser- geant. As he was in such an excited condi- tion efforts were made to keep from him until he should have become calm all know- ledge of what had happened, but he quickly divined that his mates had been run over and killed on the line. His grief then became terrible. He raved and said he would kill himself, struggling all the time so fiercely that it took the two policemen to hold him Still in a frenzy of grief he was taken to the Police-station, where in the course of a few hours lie became calm and during the morn- ing he returned to his home at Clydach Vale. Jones sa^s that he and his companions were going to pick mushrooms and thev lav down to sleep Phillips had a pillow slip on him in which the mushrooms were to be carried. Ihe train which ran over the two men was a Wank Holmdy return excursion, due at Gil- fach Goch about midnight, but owing to the usual holiday delays it was a few hours late.
GREAT MAJORITY FOR AFFILIATION. NOTABLE RESULTS AT MAESTEG. On Thursday last week the ballot was taken amongst the members of the South Wales -Miners Federation on the question:- Are you in favour of affiliation with the Labour Representation Committee? There are altogether some four hundred lodges in the district, and each lodge is sup- posed to have balloted. The results at pre- sent are only partially known, but so far as they go they indicate a strong tendency amongst the miners in nearly all parts of the coalfield in favour of affiliation. It was generally understood that the Monmouth- shire miners would vote in favour of affilia- tion. and it is not surprising that the returns from the lodges in the county are distinctly tavourable to the Labour Representation Committee. But the set of the tide towards affiliation is not in Monmouthshire alone. It is practically in all parts of the coalfield. -Not even the Rhondda is exempt from it. Here it was thought that the influence of two such stalwart leaders as Mabon and Mr. Watts Morgan, who have been prominent in denouncing the Labour Representation Com- mittee. would have prevailed in an unmis- takeable manner. But in some of the Rhondda lodges where the results have made known large majorities have been shown in favour of the Labour Representation Com- mittee. The returns are. however, still far from complete, owing to the fact that some districts have not yet polled, and because. in others, secrecy is still reserved as to the figures. From results which have been made public it appears that 10.606 have voted for affiliation. and 1.380 against, the majority for being 9.226. The Maesteg district lias gone very strongly in favour of affiliation wi A the Labour party. Practically all th £ returiw are now known. The details in the voting are as follow — lor Agst. L.R.C.

The official figures will not be published for some weeks, but sufficient returns are known to decide the issue so far as South Wales is concerned. The figures for this part of the Federation will be forwarded to Mr. Thomas Ashton, the general secretary of the Federation of Great Britain, to whom the results of the ballots in other coalfields will also be sent.
PENYBONT DISTRICT COUNCIL. Mr. Thomas Rees. J.P.. presided over the fortnightly meeting of the JPenybont Rural District Council at Bridgend on Saturday. others present being Messrs. Griffith Edwards. T. Butler. L. G. Jones. Thomas Penhale. Edward Morgan. J. 1. D. Nicholl, and the Rev. H. Eynon Lewis, with the clerk (Mr. H. Harmar Cox) and the surveyor (Mr. Ernest Jenkins). ALLEGED ENCROACHMENT. The committee appointed to consider the question of an alleged road encroachment op- posite Mr. David Thomas's houses in Maesteg Road. Cwmfelin, reported that they visited the spot. accompanied by the surveyor, sani- tary Inspector Watkin J. Davies. and several members of the Llangynwyd Middle Parish Council. The committee found that there was at least 18 feet from the palisade wall to the centre of the road. the line being similar to that in front of villas on the same side of the road. The committee, however, recom- mended the Council to reserve to themselves the right to call upon Mr. David Thomas or his successors to take down the wall if called upon. After some discussion Mr. Nicholl moved that no further action be taken in the matter. Mr. T. Penhale seconded, and it was carried. PANT MAWR QUARRIES. The Surveyor reported that according to instructions received at the last meeting, he proceeded to Pant Mawr Road. Cornelly. on July 16th. with the intention of taking up the rails which Messrs. Thomas, of Newport, had laid along the road. Messrs. Thomas had. however, previously advised him that they were going to commence the new diver- sion that day. and lie found that the work had actually started when he arrived. He then put the Council's men to expedite and finish the work. Everything was now satis- factorily completed, though a little delay was caused owing to Mr. Powell. the tenant of Grove Farm. refusing to allow the fencing to proceed or the road to be opened, as Messrs. Thomas had not obtained his permission to enter on the land. Mr. Powell subsequently waived his objection provided he were given some material, etc.. as compensation. He had spoken to Messrs. Thomas with reference to an account for £ 12 4s.. wages for the Council s workmen. They replied. As the diversion has been so troublesome and costly a matter to us. we hope the Council will re- li?ve us of any charge for the labour." As no charge had been made for his services, he thought the Council should demand payment. of the sum named. Mr. Nicholl moved that a further applica- tion be made to Messrs. Thomas for payment of the amount. Mr. Penhale seconded the motion, which was carried. EWENNY BRIDGE. The Surveyor reported that a beast belong- ing to Mr. Jones, farmer, of Corntown. got on to one of the footbridges on Ewenny Moors and became wedged there. The rails on one side had to be removed in order to re- lease it. The whole of the footbridge was found to be in a rotten state, and he had had the same replaced by a new one at a cost of t6. The Surveyor's action was confirmed. TREFACH WATER SCHEME. Mr. W. E. Lewis wrote that he had con- sidered the application of the deputation from the Council with reference to the spring at Trefach Farm. He would agree to let the water upon the following terms and con- ditions -The Council to pay a rent of C7 10s. per annum inclusive, to supply free of charge Trefach Farm and the two cottages on the farm with sufficient water for all domes- tic and farm purposes, to have power to lay the necessary mains over such portion of the farm as may oe advisable, to commit as little trespass as possible in laying such mains, and to restore the land to its original condition so far as possible and with as little delay as possible. If any permanent damage were committed to the land, the Council must pay aompensation for the same. and all the costs of preparing the necessary agree- ment should be borne by the authority. On the motion of Mr. Xicholl. it was de- cided to write Mr. Lewis asking him to re- consider the decision in regard to the rent to be charged for the spring. Sanitary Inspector Eiryn W. Davies was directed to report on what the Council could do with regard to the Llechclawdd Spring, the acquiring of which has been recently con- sidered by the Council. RIGHT OF WAY. The Clerk to the Parish Council of New- castle Higher forwarded a copy of a resolu- tion passed at a properly convened meeting of that authority recently, which was as fol- lows :—"Public notices having been given by the Parish Council, authorised by a resolu- tion of the Council, to consent to the stop- ping up by Mr. R. W. Llewellyn of a right- of-way from the district road at Court Col- man to a point about 430 yards distant in a field to the east of Caegarw House and to the construction of a new path from the last- named point to a point on the district road 60 yards or thereabouts to the north of the entrance to Court Colman House, and more than two months having elapsed since. such notice was given, the Parish Council hereby confirms the resolution consenting to the diversion." Mr. Nicholl moved that the Council con- firm the decision, and it was carried.
GARW .VERS' DEMONSTRATION. To the Editor. Sir. — Kindly permit us through the medium of your columns to refer to what has appeared in a contemporary regarding the selection of speakers for the annual demon- stration of miners for tbA Garw and Ogmore and Gilfach districts, at Porthcawl. signed by One of the Demonstration Committee for 1905." The writer stated that Alder- man John Thomas was responsible for the selection of Messrs. Abraham (Mabon). W. Bi ace. and John Ward as speakers. We beg to state that the statement is totally inaccurate, and we are able to testify that Mr. Thomas had no hand in selecting these men. He merelv acted as a chairman, the selections being made by the committee. —Yours, etc.. EVAN DAVID. Secretary THOMAS LUCAS. Treasurer. Demonstration Committee. 1906.
