I DULAIS VALLEY CHAT. «, (Gan Ymdeithydd.)  Two local cases were heard at Neath Police Court, on Frid-Y last. In the first John Morris, a. haulier, of Crynant, was charged with having stolen SIbs. of oorn, the property of the Llwynon Colliery Company. P. C. Slatrer told the bench that when he arrested defendant, the latter replied "I hope you will do your best. The Magistrate: "And you have?" The Constable Yes, sir (laughter). A fine of 30s. including costs was im- posed. In the second case, five Crynant boys, Thomas Davies, Kitchener Aplin, Ifor Bufton, Edgar Bufton and Wm. J. Mc- i Ca.rthy, were charged at the Juvenile Court with causing damage to electric in- sulators to the amount of JB4 at Crynant on January 19. All admitted the oftence.. It was stated that this mischief was be- coming very considerable, and the inter- f,erecnr,e wi th the electric system in the district was becoming a great public in- j convenient e. Over 100 insulators had been smashed in the neighbourhood of Crynant, ajid a penaJty which should serve as a warning to other lads was requested. The Bene-h ordered the parents to pay £4 2s. 6d. and the cost-a of the Court. As indicated in our last issue, the con- cert held last Thursday evening in con- nection with Soar Chapel, Seven Sisters, was a conspicuous success, not only in re- gard to the quality of the artistoes, but also in the attendance. There was a large gathering, and a considerable sum of the evening was the remarkably fine recitals given by Miss Sarah J. Davies, a. rising young elocutionist, who has already won a gold medal at one of the Semi- National Eisteddfodau, and who will be undoubtedly be much heard of in the future. Many local readers will learn with in- terest that Mr and Mrs. Leyshon Levi, and their young daughter, who were un- til recently, in business at Seven Sisters, also managing the local Post Office, have arrived safely at their destination,- Sydney, Australia. The travellers left Liverpool on December 18th, the principal reason for their departure being the 111- health of Mrs. Levi, who it is hoped will benefit by the more congenial climate of the Souta. It is with great satisfaction that I learn of the complete success of he bene- .fit performances which took place on Tueø- day evening at Messrs. St-udta' picture house for Mr David Lewis, Brick row, who has been ill for over six months. Messrs. Studt very kindly placed their building at the disposal of the local com- mittee organised to carry out the duties of promoting the entertainments, and as a result two crowded houses were obtained. Messrs. Studt only took their bare ex- penses from the gross proceeds, and after all charges have been met there Temains a substantial Sum to hand over to Mr Lewis. At the conclusion of the second performance on Tuesday evening, Mr George Jones (checkweigher), proposed, and Councillor T. Prosser seconded, a. very cordial vote of thanks to Messrs. 'Studts for their kindness, and this was carried with enthusiasm. Mr Dare, the local manager, suitably responded. An interesting local marriage took place on Wednesday, at Registry Office, Neath, the contracting parties being Miss Mary L. Davies, daughter of Mr and Mrø. Henry Divies, of 26 Mary Street, Seren Sisters, and Mr Rees Hicks, eldest son of Mr and Mrs. Richard Hicks, Panty- ffordd. Both are well known in the dis- trict, the bride having served1 at the Onllwyn Inn for some years. They are to make their home in Onllwyn Road. Active preparations are being made for -the Gymanfa to be held in April at Zoar Independent Chapel, Seven Sisters, and in Dlaco of the usual service on Sunday evening, a practice was held which proved very profitable. Appearances point to the -festival being very successful. I learn that Mr E. Evana-Bevaai, J.P., -declines to give an interview to the joint committee in regard to the short-day Saturday for the Valley, but has con- sented to receive a deputation from the Seven S'>tera Colliery Committee, to. gether with Mr J. D. Morgan, and Mr s?t?och MorrcH ?-<?y (Friday), and aa stated before, there &Te strong hop^ of '3n amicable ?ttlement. The full joint ?mitt?wJIbe in att^nd^ce at a gin- vemient dl during the interview, ? v??t o?S?S?i? nL ??inaily arranged without okWrnng fhe Ml consent of the committee. Org?u?on wor k still proceeds in ■cmaSon with the ?-bu?Iding club for Seven Sisters. Thirty members have com- menced their contributions, there are five other names on the books, and I am told that more applications for member- ships are to be considered. All indications point to the formation of a very success- ful club. The contract for the erection of tempor- ary stores for the newly formed Blaen- dulais Cooperative Society has been -given to Messrs. Clames, of Stratford, London, who have put up several other similar buildings in Sbuth Wales. The work will be commenced in about a fortnight's time. The English Baptist Cause in Seven Sisters is progressing very favourably, and slowly but surely a prosperous little church is being formed. Special mission- ary services have been conducted on Mon- day, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings of this week by the Rev. A. Harner, of Mumbles, and have attracted good con- gregations. About twelve new members have been baptised into the church with- in comparatively recent months. I Last evening (Thursday), the annual concert in connection with the Onllwyn Congregational Church took place, when the members of the choir gave all enjoy- able rendering of the sacred cantata, "The Moabitee." The conductor was Mr Gruffydd Ellis Gruffydd, and the princi- pal artistes were Madame Richards, Miss M. J. Pugh, Miss Ethel Jones, Messrs. W. Thomas andJohn Richards. A good audienoe assembled. Maesmarchog Colliery was the scene of a rather serious accident during the week- end., when a workman named W. Howells, of Seven Sisters, sustained a broken leg through the giving way of a portion of the timbering. He was removed home. Trie committee responsible for the or- j ganisation and promotion of the Colbren Eisteddfod are now making active pre- parations for the holding of this year's function, and already a good part of the arrangements are in hand, although the Eisteddfod will npt take place until July 25th. I may be able to make a highly interesting announcement in regard to the appointment of an adjudicator in the course of the next few weeks. ♦ »♦« »
