Bangor Davies, William John, only surviving son of Mr. and Mrs. John Rees, of Newbridge Farm, Bridgend, to Sarah Ann, o,,I, dtu,-h er of Mrs. Yorwerth, of Kenfig.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 17th. 1906. Lord St. Aldwyn, the independent chair- man of the South Wales Coal Conciliation Board, will sit to-morrow to arbitrate between the owners and the workmen on the latters' demand for an increase of five per cent. in the general wage rate as and from the 1st August. It will be remembered that last year wages sank to the minimum, but owing to an improvement in trade and prices the workmen were able to secure a rise in May last, and the new prices have been in operation during the quarter just ended. The men on this occasion isought an advance of 33per cent. and the employers offered 11 a compromise being effected of 2t per cent. The claim now put forward is for 5 per cent., and although the owners have offered 2t per cent., the men's leaders feel justified in carrying their claim to the independent chairman. As it will be the duty or his lord- ship to give his casting vote either for or against the demand, he having no power to vary the amount claimed, the men will re- ceive all they ask for or nothing at all. The claim of the men, if it proves to be justified, will be a matter for gratification, for coming as it will three months after the advance of May last; it will show that the coal trade of South Wales is steadily increasing in pros- er perity. In the original scheme for County Schools, the town of Maesteg was, in com- mon with many other populous places, not considered of sufficient importance to warrant a school being erected for its own special use. Like many other similar places, it was included in the area of a smaller town some distance away, the town in its particu- lar instance being Bridgend. In the mean- time Maesteg has developed rapidly, and h&s become in actual population one of the largest places in Central Glamorgan. Now that the County Council propose to amend their scheme so as to undertake the erection of new schools and improve those already in existence, the Maesteg Councillors have been seeking to secure a school for their own district, but they have met with a definite, and what appears to be a final, reply in the negative from the County Council. They have received an offer, however, to transfer their district from the area of Bridgend to that of Port Talbot-an offer which as a matter of fact means very little advantage, as, since the opening of the Port Talbot Rail- way, a large number of pupils have attended that school from Maesteg. The Llynfi fathers, however, do not intend accepting "No" for an answer, and have decided to again communicate with the County Council. No one would begrudge Maesteg a County School of its own, but we do not think the impolite designation of Bridgend as a "tin- pot town" will help towards that (from Maes- teg's point of view) desirable end. Mr. Gibbon purposely overlooked the fact that the school at Bridgend serves a population of some sixty thousand or more in an area which obviously could not be served as well from any other point. In the original scheme central and accessible positions were chosen, small regard being paid to the popu- lation of the places in which the schools were built. This method must obviously be ad- hered to in the future, though it may bear hard on some of the populous outlying places. If the Maesteg local authorities really think they have a just claim to a County School, why not adduce comparative facts and figures setting out their case i The Maesteg District Council have not re- ceived an unexpected answer from the Local Government Board with respect to the call- ing in of an expert engineer to advise as to their water scheme. The engineering pro- fession would have just cause for complaint if the Local Government Board took certain engineers under their sheltering wing, to the disadvantage of all those remaining out in the cold. Such a proceeding would be alto- gether irregular and improper. The Coun- cil were on Tuesday in the same position as a fortnight previously in having to select an engineer on their own responsibility, and they decided, as they might have done two weeks ago, to communicate with Mr. Middle- ton. Upon the advice of that expert, if he is engaged, will probably rest the momentous decision whether the scheme is to be pro- ceeded with. By the way the air of mystery which the Council has maintained in regard to the whole affair is becoming still more strange. At Tuesday's meeting, Mr. J. H. Thomas delivered himself thus We ought to be in a position to tell Mr. Middleton of the new views which are being entertained in regard to the scheme, and a special meeting should be held to go fully into the question before he visits the place should his fees be favourable." What" new views" are re- ferred to, the public are not privileged to know.

The second annual outing of the Bridgend Parliamentary Debating bociety took place at Plas Coedymwstwr on Wednesday, by the kind invitation of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur J. Williams, and although the weather was far from favourable, between 60 and, ù members and their friends were present. Aiter tea, the company assembled in front of the resi- dence, when Mr. Michael Davies \the Speaker) moved a vote of thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Williams for their kindness in inviting the members to so pleasant a gathering. This was seconded by Mr. W. Hopkins khon. sec.), and supported by Mr. J. L. Lambert on behalf of the Conservative Government, Mr. L. Edwards on behalf of the Liberals, and Mr. J. Lewis on behalf of the Labourites. In reply, Mr. Williams said he was always glad to do anything in his power tor any good cause in his native town of Bridgend. Three cheers having been given for Mr. and Mrs. Williams and family, the company adjourned to the cricket pitch to take part in a match which had been arranged between the Government and the Liberal and Labour, the result being: Liberal and Labour, 44; Conservative, 43; majority for the Opposi- tion, 1. Other amusements included lawn tennis, croquet, miniature golf, etc., and Mr. and Mrs. Williams were untiring in their efforts in making the visitors feel quite at home. The company returned home about 8.30. having spent a very pleasant time. Credit is due to the hon. sec. for getting to- gether a good number, considering the un- favourable climatic conditions. SOUTHERNDOWN GOLF CLUB. At a meeting of the Southerndown Golf Club Committee held on Saturday, applica- tions were received from a number of pro- fessionals anxious to secure the position of professional and greenkeeper to the club. Out of 20 or 30 applications three, of young players aged between 22 and 27. from St. An- drew's, Westward Ho, and Dollymount (Dub- lin), were selected for further consideration. and it was resolved to request these appli- cants to meet the members of the committee at Southerndown to-day (Friday), when in all probability a final decision will be arrived at. Amonp; the questions discussed was that of the shortening of the 16th and 17th holes. At present No. 16 is 540 yards and No. 17 is 520 yards, and the former is especially ardu- ous for the reason that from tee to green it slopes up the hill. No. 16 starts from op- posite the club house,, and forms the hv-io- tenuse of a right angle triangle, of which Nos. 17 and 18 form the other two sides. It is suggested, and the proposal will no doubt in the late autumn be carried into effect, to make a new green about 340 yards from No. 16 tee. which will shorten that hole by 200 yards, and near this green will be a new tee for No. 17 hole, which will reduce the length of the latter hole from 520 to about 370 yards. These holes are at present both 6 bogey, and no doubt this will be reduced. The bogey of the course is at present 86. No one has yet been round in bogey, and the best score yet was one of 91 done by Mr. E. de Lisle Jones, of the Glamorganshire Club, when be played round the course with Dr. Barry a week or so ago. Lady Aileen Wyndham-Quin. daughter of the Earl and Countess of Dunraven, has written to Mr. W. R. Randall, hon. secretary of the Club, accepting the presidency and captaincy of the ladies' section of the new club.

The pack were then called off. and commenced hunting the stream above the bridge towards Ewenny. where they showed signs all the way up. On reaching Waterton Hall the excitement com- menced. one or two otters being viewed. Jackson, the hunstman. was equal to the oc- casion. the hounds settling: down in fine form. One of the otters took an overland route for a short distance before again tak- ing the stream. ]-he aek. sticking to him closely, drove him down to the Warterton Moors, where, after an hour and 40 minutes hard hunting, it was killed. It proved to be a vixen of 161b. weight. Colonel Turbervill was presented with the mask. and Miss Wil- liams. The Heath, with the tail.

THE LATE MR. T. LLOYD EDWARDS. The funeral of the' late Mr. T. Lioyd Edwards. Bridfrend, surveyor to the Glamor- gan County Council, which took place on Friday at St. Illtyd's Church, Newcastle, was of a strictly private character. The services in the church and at the graveside were con- ducted by the Rev. David Phillips. B.A.. Vicar of Newcastle. The chief mourners I present were Mr. Arthur Edwards and Mr. T. A.

Pninips. ueputy surveyor; Messrs. S. Roberts ana L. roie (representing the oliiee staii of tone aeoeasettt. the bearers were Messrs. JSX. J. iietcner. J. ftankey, T. iiardwicii, ana £ >. jctooerts (sidesmen of New- castle Church,), Mr. Aiec Mark, road inspec- tor for iinagend district, and the other road inspectors oi the county. The coffin, which was covered with beautiful noral tributes from near relatives, was ot polished oak. and the name-plate bore the inscription "Thomas. Lloyd Edwards, died 7th August. 1906; aged 64.' Atter tne luneral muffled peals were rung on the church bells. The tuneral ar- rangements were carried out by Mr. Leonard Rhvs. Itie Vicar of Newcastle (Rev. D. Phillips) preached a touching sermon on Sunday morn- ing on the death of Mr. T..Lloyd Edwards, in the course of which he said During the past week the passing of Thomas Lloyd Edwards leaves a deep sense of personal loss to many of us, and I cannot allow his depar- ture from us to pass away without making some reference to it; for his life was full of many lessons worthy of imitation. To at- tempt any adequate description of his full character and influence is beyond my power, but there were some characteristics so marked that they were known to most of us. Absolutely true to duty, he would never shrink from anything he thought was right and just, whether it might interest him or not. Those closely associated with him in business capacities will remember his habits of method, his care for details, in things great and small. His strong sense of duty was very marked. He was wedded to his work, which he carried out most conscien- tiously. His integrity of character and up- rightness of life will ever remain a monument to his memory. With him character was the noblest of possessions, and his own com- manded universal respect and honour. He placed a high opinion upon good character by setting a noble example himself. An- other characteristic of our deceased friend was loyalty of friendship. He was true to you because he was true to himself. It is a simple matter to win hosts of friends in prosperity; it is difficult to count upon them in adversity. We claim for our departed friend the constancy of friendship in all the varied trials of life. In the storm and calm in the troubled waters and sunshine, he would remain loyal. Sociableness was an- other prominent trait of his character. We shall have reason to mourn his ioss in this respect, for his loving nature and sympathetic touch of fellow-feeling always found him on the side of ready response, with a noble dis- position to fee! for others. His face was full of kindness and sympathy, and his very voice was full of pathos and tenderness. Look at his conduct towards children. This at once stamps the man. How he won their hearts with kind words and deeds! Children have a remarkable instinctive knowledge of human nature in its kindness and sympathy. Politeness entered into his very being in all his actions. There was a dignity in all his transactions which made a deep impression upon usbliging and kind to his friends, and always showing courtesy to strangers. Now this brings me to another characteristic in his life—devotion. He feared God and served His Church. Look aft, his example as a Christian. A man full of business, wrapt up in his duties of a weighty character, hold- ing a most important official position in the affairs of this county, conversant with busi- ness men with all shades of opinion—men of the world, perhaps of little Christianity—and yet our dear friend never surrendered his faith in God, his devotion to the Church, his interest in religion, his regular communion. It is refreshing to remember that he sought the consolation of religion after his tired labours during the week, and that he served this Church as one of its wardens for many years, twelve in all, filling his office with be- coming dignity, and realising a full sense of the responsibility of his honoured position as Churchwarden by discharcring his duties to the responsibility of his honoured position as Churchwarden by discharcring his duties to the entire satisfaction of all. The Church was dear to his heart, and a real power for good. The choir—to him ever a source of pride and grstification--has lost one of its best friends and supporters. He was full of music, was attracted to good music, knew how to appreciate it. and. I say it in no boast, no music satisfied his soul like that of St. Illtyd's. He was really proud of the choir. We all know that, and we all feel the force of the power of the beautiful words. Thou wilt keep him in perfect, peace whose mind is stayed on Thee."
BRIDGEND DISTRICT COUNCIL. HEALTH GOOD: WATER BAD. A meeting of the Bridgend Urban District Council was held on Tuesday evening, when there were present Messrs. G. Bevan (in the chair). M. Stradling. H. Abbott. E. Preece, junr.. G. Harris. W. Edwards, W. Jones, and R. C. Griffiths. DUSTY ROADS. The Surveyor reported that tarring opera- tions were being carried out in Caroline- street and Dunrayen-place. and would be completed as soon as the weather permitted. He asked for permission to continue the ex- periment in Wyndham-street and Unioa- street from the York Motel to Dunraven Place, as the good surface of these roads would allow of a fairer test. Mr. Stradling asked whether the Surveyor was of opinion that the chippmgs he was using were preferable to sand. The Surveyor: 1 think line clappings are far better than sand. In reply to questions, tne Surveyor said that 1903 square yards of roadway had been tarred at a cost of £7 19s. 4d.. which worked out at a small fraction over a penny per yard. It was decided not to undertake the tar- ring of any other streets until sufficient time had elapsed to see the effect oi the operations in Caroline-street and Dunraven-place. WYXDHAM HOTEL. The Surveyor reported that the owner pf the Wyndham Arms had commenced to re- medy the sanitary defects. Mr. Haydn Jones, solicitor, wrote in reply to a letter from the clerk, that the cause of the delay in the commencement of the work was that the officials had not specified what was urgent. As the defects were now being remedied he asked the Council to withdraw the summons. Mr. Harris We cannot withdraw it until the work has been completed. The Sanitary Inspector said it would be possible to finish the work in a week's time at the present rate of progress. The Clerk was instructed to apply to-mor- row Saturday) for a further week's adjourn- ment of the summons. POWER COMPANY. The Electrician reported that there had been no improvement in the current for lighting since writing the Power Company's engineer, and he thought some measures should be taken to prevent the fluctuations in the voltage, as some of the customers were continually complaining. Mr. Harris remarked that the Council had gone out of its way to meet the company. and he thought this matter should receive at- tention. Mr. Preece It is another strong argument in favour of running a concern ourselves. It was decided to write the company's head office. DR. RANDALLS ILLNESS. Dr. Wyndham Randall. medical officer of health, wrote thanking the Council for their kind expression of sympathy with him in his illness. He also stated that he had beea able to keep in tmch with his routine work and that in Pases of emergency Dr. Spencer was acting for him. With regard to his quarterly report, he was engaged in the pre- paration of vital statistics when taken ill, and hoped to complete them in a short time. There had been only four notifications of in- fectious disease during the quarter ending June—one of enteric fever in April, one of erysipelas in June. and one of scarlet fever in May, and another in June. Mr. Preece That is very satisfactory. The Chairman said be WaS sure all the members were pleased to hear Dr. Randall was improving, and hoped he would soon be with them again. WATER ANALYSIS. The report of the County Analyst on a sample of water which had been submitted showed that bacillus coli had been found in 10 cubic centimetre—none in one c.c. and five c.c. The remarks were: Unsatisfactory. Shows evidence of contamination." Mr. Preece Just about as satisfactory as before. We are not getting any typhoid, so that we cannot say the water is the cause of typhoid. Perhaps we are in a more healthy condition and better able to resist the bac- cilus coli. Mr. Jones We are getting acclimatised. It was decided to send a copy of the analy- sis to the Gas and Water Company. OTHER MATTERS. I Plans for the conversion of the old Tobacco Factory into a dwelling house were referred back. The question of the licensing of hackney carriages was deferred for six months. It was decided to serve notices on occu- piers in the principal streets to put out their house refuse before eight o'clock in the morning. The time allowed for the making up of the back lanes at Sunnyside having expired, it was decided, on the motion of Mr. Edwards, seconded by Mr. Stradling. to inform the contractors that the full penalties would be imposed unless the work was completed in 14 dayr,Air. Stradling remarked that he was compelled to leave his carts on the highway, to the danger of the public. The Surveyor reported that he had re- rv ceived complaints of water reankmng <m timo Water-road opposite the coach-house of the Queen's Head. To remedy this. it would be necessary to lay channelling on tha.L side of the road at a cost of'TT.—Mr AbliJtt ^iLuught the work unnecessary, and that it would be I' sufficient to level the road. The cause of the water being on the road was defective shutes. —The matter was referred to the Advisory, Committee to visit the spot and report. I
Mr. Evan Roberts's Teat Wrecked. The huge tent at Llandrindod Wells, cap- able of seating 2.000 people, in which tne Welsh Revivalist. Mr. Evan Roberts, is con- ducting revival meetings this week at Llan- drindod Wells, was the object of an outrage during Tuesday night or the earfy hours of Wednesday morning. Some ill-disposed per- sons cut the main strong ropes with knives, and the whole structure of canvas and pro- jected poles collapsed. Great indignation 's expressed at the outrage, and the police have the matter in hand. The night watchman appears to have been asleep, and the perpetrators got clean away. The annoyance was all the greater because a great county meeting was fixed for the after- noon.
If yoa fcave any difficulty in aeoariag the Gmeette." write to the Head Office.
