YSTRADGYNLAIS COUNCIL. MR EDGAR L. CHAPPELL ENGAGED I AS LECTURER POSTAL FACILITIES AT CAB RBONT At the last meeting of the Ystradgyn- laia Council a discussion took place con- earning the desirability of making more general a knowledge of the provisions of the Small Dwellings' Acquisition Act. Mr D. R. Morgan said Mr Edgar L. Chappell had done and was doing his best through the Press to popularise the Act. He believed that public meetings should be held, and that the Council should publish leatiets showing the ad- vantages of the Act. The Clerk said he would be glad to give an explanation of the Act at any meeting the Council convened. Mr T. Williama said they had seen many interesting and instructive articles from the pen of Mr Chappell. If work- ing men only realized what a splendid Act it was, they would take more ad- vantage of it. Mr S. J. TohmM suggested that the Act should be made known through the oolumns of "Llais Llafur." Mr W. Walters moved that Mr Chappell should be engaged by the Coun- cil to give lectures at Colbron, Aber- crave, Cwmtwrch, and Ystradgynlais. The Act was not so good aa it ought to be, but it was in the hands of working men to make it better. Mr David Lewis said Mr Chappell had done more ta make housing a burning question in the district than anyone else and he, personally, appreciated the very kind remarks whick had been made in rospect of Mr Chappell, who was always ready to help them in every possible way. It was decided to engage Mr Chappell to give lectures in each oentro ot the dis- trict. I POSTAL FACILITIES I In accordance with a notice of motion, Mr Rhys Chapman moved that the Coun- cil should press for improved postal facilities for the Cae'rbont district. Mr Chapman: said he understood the matter had been discussed previously, and had been investigated by the Postal Officials, but nothing had been dono in the matter. There were 33 houses in the Cao'rbont area alone, and the distanos between the two letter koxee in the locality waa quite a mile. He urged that a letter box should be erected ab Cae'rbont, and that ¡ a second daily delivery of letters should be made. There were deliveries three times per day at Pearhos, and twice at Abercravo, and he thought Cae'rbont was entitled to improvements. He moved a resolution to that effect. Mr D. R. Morgan said that previously the matter had been raised, and the sur- veyor to the Post Office had made an in- vestigation into the matter, ending in his declining to grant tho request. They were there, however, to represent the people of the district, ajid they knew better than the postal authorities what was nfodkd. He seconded the resolution, and failing a satisfactory settlement he suggested that they should write to their parliamentary representative urging him to take up the matter in tke House of Commons There was some discusision regarding Mr Robinson's dda.y in dealing with previous resolutions from the Council, whereupon Mr W. D. Walters observed "That comes of having a capitalist re- presentative in Parliament. You should send a Labour member." The ire solution was approved. I METER RENTS ABOLITION REQUIRED. Mr D. R. Morgan pointed out that when the Glantawe Electric Supply Co. reduced the rent of meters about 18 months ago, the Company promised that I tha rente should ko abolished as soon as their trading accounts showed a credit balance. This he understood had now been done, and thereforo he moved that the Company should be petitioned for the abolition of the 2d. per mqnth rent at present existing. j The resolution was agreed to. i THE HOUSING SCHEME. t The CLark reported that the Local j i Government Boa?d had sanctioned the j borrowing of the sum applied for in con- I nection with the Council's housing scheme, 1 which could now be prooeeded with. On the motion of Mr Walters, seconded by Mr D. R. Morgaa, it was agreed that Mr Cooke Rees, the architect, should be empowered to proceed with the work and to ad vertise for tenders. J THE INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL I Messrs. Dd. Lewis and Lewis Thomas were elected to represent the Council on I the Board of Management of the Ystrad- gynlais Intermediate School for a period of three years.

PONTARDAWE POLICE COURT. 1 Friday, before Messrs G. H. Strick (presiding), E. G. Benthall and J. H. P. Lloyd. THE FRUITS OF FOLLY. I For having been drunk and disorderly, the following fines were inflicted on the defendants named Michael Holden, Clydach, 20s. including costs; Taliesin Williams, Pantteg, 10s. inclusive; Stan- ley James, Clydach, 12s.6d. inclusive, I and Samuel Davies, Trebanos, 10a. in- clusive. VEHICLES WITHOUT LIGHT. I Joshua Slee pleaded guilty to having dri ven a motor lorry in Llansamlet on the night of Dec. 23rd, with rear light. He expressed regret, but said the lamp was lit when he left Neath. He was ordered to pay the coets. Benjamin Reea admitted riding a bicycle witnoul light in High Street, Ponta-rdawe, on the night of January 7th and was fined 2s.6d. and costs. George Regard was summoned for having driven a horse and cart with light on December 3st, and a constable stating that there were no lamps attached to the vehicle. Fined 2s.6d. and costs. POLICEMAN ASSAULTED. I Thomas Davies, a well known Ystaly- fera resident was charged with having boon drunk and isorderly on Nov. 8th, and also with having assaulted P.C. Vowlee on the same date. P.C. Vowlea stated that at 10.15 p.m. on the day named, he saw defendant in Cyfyng Road, Ystalyfera. The man was very drunk and disorderly, and makisg use of bad language. Wtitness spoke to him regarding his con duct, but defend- ant attempted to hit him in the stomach several timca. They closed together and both fell to the ground, defendant re- lea.s.ing himself and attempting to kick witness, and to bito him in the thigh. Ultimately P.C. Glover arrived on the scene, by which time a large crowd had gathered, and when witness and his fellow cont-asble attempted to remove the man to the Police Station, the people around became agreseive, threatening to rescue the man. They had much diffi- culty with him. Addressing the Bench, Davies said he w.a,i summonod by every young coinstable who came to Ystalyfera; he could not walk through the street or get a drop of boor for them. Tho Chairman said1 there were several previous convictions, including four during last year, and the last one was for a polioo aa-ult. Davies would have to go goal for a month with hard lab- our. AFFILIATION. I Elizabeth Ann Davica, 4, James street, Pontardawe, summoned Morgan Harris, a furnaceroan, in respect of her child and I stated that in the presence of witnesses | (who wero called) that he had admitted being the father. Applicant, who was repreaont-ed by Mr R. M. Rees, solicitor, waa granted an order of 49. per week for 14 years, the Chairman remarking that in a case of that character, where they j considered that a. man was able to pay, the order would be increased from the cusomarv 3s.6d. This was necessitated by the increased cost of living. UNJUST SCALES AT YSTALYFERA An interesting case was heard from stalyfera. in which Daniel Evans, as principal of the Alltygrug Anthracite f Colliery Co. Ltd., Ystalyfera, was sum- ( nioned for having in hi3 poosession an uiiiuft weighing machine. Mr Jones j | inspector of weights and measurea, prosecuted, and Mr Morgan Davies, ) solicitor, defended. The summons had been issued in the name of Mr Evans, but on the application of Mr Davies, | it was amended to that of the Com- I pany. 1 I The Inspector stated that at 11.30 a.m. on the 6th inst., in company with P.S. Brown, he visited the Alltvgrug [ Levef, and found the weighing machine there was incomplete and un- j just to the purchaser to the extent of 2! cwts. to the ton. He spoke to Mr ¡ Evans concerning the machine, and the latter said he would send for a man at orrce to put the machine right. [ Examined by Mr Davies, who sug- 1 gmtca that the scales could be so ad- justed under or over the ton, that the proper weight paid for was given, the Inspector denied this. I Addressing the Bench, Mr Daviea I said that whilst admitting that the t machin* was out of order, he sub- • mitted that there had been no inter.- tion to defraud, nor had the pur- chasers been defrauded. The machine had been so adjusted that a full ton was givan for the price paid. Again I he migltft tell the Bench that under two j tons had been sold since the beginning } of the New Year. i [ Mr Evans, a son of the principal of < the firm, gave corroborative evidence. 1 The Bench considered the case f proved, aad imposed a fine of e2 and oosts. "IT'S' MY B- SHIRT." i A youang- Ystalyfera collier named Arthur WHiffen, woJs charged with having stofon a pit shirt valued at 4s., the property of Mrs. Rachel Thomas, Ystalyfera. He pleaded guilty. May Wdliams, of 99, St. David's Road, Ystalyfern., said that at about 3.30 p.m. cm the previous Monday she saw defendant take the shirt from the i Iinø of Mrs. Davies, put it urd-ur his coat and waTtt away. Witness told • Mrs. Thomas whalj had occurred, and they followed him up the road. M :-s. Thomas demanded the shirt back, whereupon the man replied, "It's my b—— shirt." Mrs. Thomas thereupon j seized the garment, and information being given to the police, WhifFen was arro^j'-oi. M r^. Tl^omas and P.C. Carpenter t eorroho-aie<l.

It will be remembered that a month ago a workman at the Tarreni Colliery was proceeded against for having left explosives in the mine contrary to the Explosives and Coal Mines Act, 1912, and on the grounds of insufficient evi- dence the case was dismissed. Two further cases were now heard from the same colliery, the defendants being Georg e Pihllips and Richard Jenkins. Mr C. B. Jenkins again prosecuted, and Mr Randel defended. t Phillips was unable to attend, but Mr Randell said he had been instruc- ted to plead guilty on his behalf. Mr Jenkins explained the grounds upon which the prosecution was taken, and pointed out that the regulations were not made by the proprietors of the mine, but were statutory provis- ions of the Government—one more of the very many Acts to be observed, that the proprietors hardly knew how to comply with them all. There was a 1 place provided on the surface for the I storage of explosives, and it was the duty of every man to carry his ex- plosive from the mine to that place after ceasing work. On September I 20th last, defendant left altogether nine pills of rippite in his stall. John Standidge, manager, said that in company with Inspector Walden, and the under manager, Mr James Evans, he examined the mine on Sept. 23rd, and they found defendants' canister containing the expressive be- hind a prop about five yards from the I face. The last time defendant worked in the stall prior to the finding of the explosive was the Friday afternoon previous. Examined by Mr Randell, witness agreed that the rippite was in the ) canister, but would not say whether there was danger or not in its being left underground. He admitted, how- J ever, that the great danger of this ex- I plosive was in its, becoming frozen, and said it was more liable to freeze above ground than under the surface. Mr Randell submitted that the offence was purely technical, and so far as they could tell, there was no j need for the regulations. It had been I shown that the explosive was less dangerous underground than on the surface. As a matter of fact the men strongly objected to the Act, and he was told that they were taking steps I to appeal to the Home Secretary to have the law amended. ) The magisrates held that there being a breach of the law, they must convict, j A nominal penalty of 10s. and costg would be imposed. In the second case, that of Richard Jenkins, there was a strong defence, Mr Ra-ndell pleading not guilty on behulf of accused. Mr Jenkins said he was a.t some dis- advantage in that case. inasmuch as he had only one witness thero w ho was presont when the alleged offence was discovered. Mr Standidge, the manager, would give evidence, but for s.me reason or other the Inspector ha.d not attended, and tho under manager, Mr JaB. Evans, was not available. The facts were, how- ever, exactly similar to the previous AtfII J, Mr Standidge spoke to the Inspection of tho colliery when a can containing eleven pills of rippite was found in de- fendant's stall, covered by a piece of brattice-cloth. The name on the canister was Edwin Jenkins, brother of defecid- ant, but it was customary for workmen to use each other's tins, and Edwin Jenkins had not worked' in the pit for two or three weeks prior to the offence. No one but Richard Jenkins and his boy h3Ai occupied the stall. Answering Mr Randell, who laid great stress on the point, witness said he could not say whether he picked up the canis- ter or who did. He was, however quite sure that it was found in defendant's stall. Has there been some trouble in which Richard Jenkins was concerned ?— Y ee. And there has been some trouble with James Evans?—Yes; ho has left the Company's service. Mr Randell suggested that the source of the trobulo was between Evans and Jenkins. which had eventually resulted in a strike, and he further suggested 1 that the canister had not been placed in the stall by defendant, but bv some one e lse, whom, they wanted to discover. Mr Standidge admitted that the officials were down tho pit on the day 1 prior to the finding of the explosive. Thomas Davies, fireman, gave formal evidence regarding th> mint, beirg stopped from September 20th to 29th, and raid thst when he made an examina- tion of defendant's stall on the 22rd, he found everything right. He d:d not see tlv1 ca-nis-ter. Mr Randell said his defence was a simple denial of tho offenoe. Jenkins' own can wnis empty, diving the. week that tho colliery was idle, and he had no idee, of-how his brother's can came to bo farmd in his stall. There was a great element of doubt as to whether thf' caniste<r was. fofind in Richard Jenkins' stall. Mr Standidge could not. say whether he, or which of the others, found it, and that was most extra- ordinary. De!end-Jit entered the box, and bore out Mr Randall's statement. The Devich held that tho case had been rtroved. and inflicted a penalty of 10s. and coet s as iu the previous case. ,—————— «
DUBININ WORKERS' MORAL VIC- TORY. Dublin employers are in a chastened mood. The crushing losses of a ifve- months' lockout a-nd the repeated col- lapse of the reported col La use on the part of five men have at length told. The employers have now put the Mur- phyite plefige policy behind thorn, tho Union-breaking policy behind them, and the r n io-n-brf"aking crusade w it- self b"o Ven. | Tho situation is this week being re- tKt lved by ¡jona.1 settlomentiB, in f which the "pledge" is not mentioned J and the men are iroing back on the same terms as before the lock-out. Substantially, though not formally, Trade Unionism has won the battle for. recognition, because there is no going back in any ca.se without a settlement made through the Unions.

FOOTBALL I RUGBY. I YSTALYFERA DRAW WITH I AMMANFORD. LOCAL TEAM'S GOOD PLAY. I Y stalyfera. had an important engage- ment on Saturday, when they were en- tertained by Ammanford. It will be re- membered that the previous game at YBtalyfera ended in a pointl ess draw, but on Saturday, Ammanford had the advantage of playing on their own ground and were hopeful of victory particularly as they bad a ground at stake. Ystaly- fera., h owever, played excellently, and were successful in withstanding the at- tacks of the home side to the extent that the match again closed a pointless draw. The respective teams were YSTALYFERA.— Back, D. W. Gritfiths; three-quartera, Tom Smith, H. Thomas, Langdon, and A. Liingdon; G. Lajicrdon and H. Jenkins; forwards, D. Griluths, T. Morgan, T. A. Davies, D. J. Jones, Tom Richards, D. L. Thomas, T. Jenkins, a.nd W. Langdon. AMMANFORD.— Back, Gordon BuT- chell; three-quarters, Basil Jones, T. Jones D. L. Evans, and Handel Rich- ards halves, A. Griffiths a-nd J. Jones; forwards, D. Lewie, T. J. Boweu, W. Lewis, T. Williams, D. Evans, F. JflU- kins, D. P. Thomas, a.nd Webber. Referee, Mr W. Dewitt, Llanelly. There waa a. record gate. The visitors commenced, but ArranaJiford distinctly had the better of the initial stages. From the first serum they heeled, Abbot Griffiths after beating Langdon lost the ball. The next moment he maj-ked and Birchell found touch well down the field. Several times Ammanford tried to bring off their wanted parsing movements, but tho Ystalyfera tackling was exceedingly keen, and they oontested every inch of ground. Young Janes, of Ammanford lost two fine chances by holding an too long, and eventually Dai Llan Evans made a great opening for Handed Rich- ards, who, however, ran tco cl ose to the Ystalyfera full-back and "loet the ball. After the restart, play was faet and furious, and grea-t efforta on, both sides were made to open the scoring account. All these failing, the match tloscd as already indicated. AMMANFORD-N il. YSTALYFERA.—Nil.
PONTARDAWE'S ACHIEVEMENT HOLD THEIR OWN AGAINST SWAN SEA AN EXCELLENT GAME. I The friendly match between Pontar- dawo and Swansea on the former's ground on Saturday proved one of the greatest sporting attractions in the Valley of recent date, and to ray that considerabl interest was evinced in the event hardly gives a true explanation of the exact extent to which popular feeling ran. The match had been held in the keenest anticipation for weeks past, and this was Lm plv T,tlectd in the attend- ance on Saturday. Although not quite so large as many of the more sanguine of the local officials had hoped, th» 'gate' was nevertheleFS of considerable di- mansions, and in the words of a promi- nent local supporter was quite out of the ordinary. And now as to the trams. In accord- ance with our fot-ecMt !?'"t wek, the visitors' side wae grMLtly w'?kcn'?-d by reason of several of their number having ti) do duty i,n tho great International match, but on the othe'r hand Pontar- dawe wei- al?o handicapped in a s imilar fash ion, three or four of the regular players being absentees. At the last moment, a.n important eha.nge had to be made, T J. Williams tak.aig the place of Geo. Smith, who could not, appear. The respective teanis taking the field wevo PONTARDANVE-J Dav.rs,- Vaughan, Hopkins, Stanley Davies and l'om Jonto; Kitt and T. Lewis; Graham Morgan (Capt.), LI. Jones, Dan Jonee, Alex. Williams, W. Reea, A. Evans, T. J. Wil- liams, and Trevor Rees. SWANSEA.—J. Davies; J. John, a-id Morris, A. WalU rs, and Alf. 'I homar,; J Griffiths and B. Beyaon; DaJ Thomas, T Morgan, B. Hoiling<lale«, P. Evans, D. I Huxtable, Ellwood, A. Evans and Phil Williams. During the opening stages of tho game, play was not of a very attractive order, except perhaps for a passing sensation, j when the home fifteen gave the visilors an opening which almost. IX/ked fatal. Tho opportunity was, however, miseed. Swansea got away smartly, and were al- niat on the point of scoring when John mulled in Inning the ball. Tha visitors ontinued to prcfe, but Kift secured rfo- lie-f by finding touch. Then Ix-wis dribbled along the ground, and mr.d9 way fol' umart work by Jones, who initiated a prc-tty bout of passing which resulted in Vaughan registering a fine try at tho comer. Dan Jones made & miserable a,t, tempt to convert. i Immediately after the reeumptdem, the home side led by Tom Lewis, broke awav with a fine dash but by an error the bill readied thi hands of Waters, who did his duty, saving for the visitors in fine style. The homesters were now having decidedly the better ei the argu- mont, and an several cocascotie appecroj but the Swansea dpfooce WU -otind.

A melee followed, from which Waters got over at the corner in excellent style, but Joe Davies failed to add points. The teams now being equal, the game was fought with iu- cre;Lsed vigour, and thore was a tendaney to sacrifice the good open football hither- to played for rough and tumble work. The home backs initiated a pretty bout of passing, and Vaughan was getting away nicely when he was well tackled by the visitors. Than followed one of tho finest features of the game. Beynon "dodged" the home halves, got to the home 25 lines, transferred to Alf. Thointi-s who passed to Morris, and the latter ap- pMU-ed to be & positive scorer, but was brought down in truly Herculean style by Johbny Davies. The home side were pressing, a lomg kick by Joe Davies transferred tho venue of play, and from this point onwards the visitors wc-re hammcffling at the Pontardawe goal, but the home defence was sound. Kift made himself coaiepicuous by touching down at the critical moment and generally was playing well. A scramble an the Pontar- dawe line carried excitement to fever pitch, and tho visitors looked certain I soorers, but the homesters broke anvay and thus saved an exceedingly danger- outr frituatka. A narn ttle later tho whistle wounded, and thus the game ended in a draw.
