Others present were Messrs. W. Beynoai, W. Davies, G. M. Janio4, J. W. Davies, W. Jeffries, J. Edwards, and the clerk. Several highly interesting ajid important matter were discussed during the evening. A letter was read from Air Talbot, General Manager of N. and B. Railway, conveying his reply to the deputation that recently waived upon him with re- ga.rd to better train service. Mr Talbot stated) th4t the addition of a clean coach to the collier train was now under con- sideration, but that extra running of the 1 p.m. from Neath, did not pay. Also he could not entertain the idea of erecting a. temporary halt at Pantyfford, Onllwyn, stating that the inhabitants now have only a short wa^k to Onllwyn and Seven Sisters stations. Much diesa-tiafaction was felt by the councillors. Mr James advised the call- ing upon the support of the local M.P. But the meeting was informed that the County Council had already approached the N. and B. Railway Co. on some other matters. Eventually Mr Janiea proposed, and Mr J. W. Davies, second- ed, that the matter be reported to the County Council and to the local district councillor, Mr W. Daniels, Crynant. Another letter of great importance locally was received from Councillor Dd. Daniels, who, as a member of the Light- ing Committee of Neath District Coun- cil, wrote that four new electric lamps had been sanctioned for Henwain district, and that negotiations are in progress by the District Engineer and Mr Thompson, the electrician, as to the cost of lighting Onllwyn and Crynant with electric light. These gentlemen are making enquiries among the local oolliery proprietors. The Council were very grateful to Mr Daniels for taking such a prominent pajt in securing for the Dulais Valley inhabit- anta a long felt need. On the motion of Messrs. W. Davies and W. Beynon, Mr E. Evans-Bevan, J.P., Neath, was re-elected to represent the Parish Council in Neath Group of School Managers.
