CAERAU. I Prohibition Controversy.—A well attended meeting of workmen was held at the Station Hotel, Caerau, on Friday, to discuss the atti- tude of the teetotal party which is endeavouring to force Prohibition in Wales. The meeting was addressed by Mr. Maddocks (Penarth), and his able advocacy of the rights of the workers was enthusiastically received. Mr. J. A. Pope (Port Talbot) presided, and the following reso- lution was put to the meeting, and carried unanimously :—"We, members of the combined clubs of Caerau, embracing the Social and Liberal Institute, the Silver Band, and Work- men's Institute, and Constitutional Club, with a membership of 1,500 workmen, strongly pro- test against any further restrictive legislation, which would make Wales and Monmouthshire a cockpit for further teetotal experiments. We protest, further, against the action of various teetotal socities, assisted by hired agitators from other countries, in carrying on a political campaign during the present crisis, with a view to forcing their teetotal fads upon the com- munity, and call upon the Government to put a stop to these disloyal methods, which are caus- ing grave unrest, and are calculated to prove disastrous to both the Government and the com- munity." Hermon.-An excellent performance of the I cantata, "Garactacus," was given by Hermon Juvenile Choir, under the conductorship of Mr J. Uoyd Thomas, on Monday evening. The large audience was treated to some very good singing and acting. Indeed, some of the young performers displayed exceptional dramatic abili- ties, and the whole performance refected great credit on the conductor (Mr. H. T. Morgan), the accompanist, and on all others who helped to make the concert such a success. The chair was occupied by the pastor (Rev. W. Edwards, M.A.), and the chief characters represented were as follows:—Claudius, Roman Emperor, Mr. Alfred Morris; Agrippa, Roman Empress, Miss Betty Ellis; Caractacus (British Chief), Mr. D. James Griffiths; Rotha (Wife of Carac- tacus, Miss Elsie Edwards; Gip (a Strolling Player), Mr. Leonard Harris; Topsy (Gip's Wife), Mr. Aubrey Ellis; Rolf (a Pirate), Mr. D. Robert Johns); Polly (Rolf's Sister), Miss I Lizzie Jones; Cartismandua (Rotha's Mother), Miss Doris Howells; Bericus (British Warrior), Mr. George Jones; Cadwallo (Archdruid), Mr. Willie John; Nell (a British Girl), Miss M. E. Chilton; Llefelys (a British Woman), Miss Jennet Jones; Carman., Mr. Tom Crabb; Druids, Maypole Dancers, Soldiers, Slaves, etc. The secretarial duties were ably carried out by Mr. Idwal Jones, while Mr. W. Thomas (assisted by I Meesrs. 8. Howells and D. J. Hopkin) acted as atage manager. The performance was repeated on the following Wednesday evening, when Mr. Oliver Harris (Caerau) occupied the chair.
