MINERS HOURS AND WAGES REFUSAL TO CONSIDER EXTRA PAY FOR NIGHT-WORK. Foveral matters of importance to niii- ers--such as the hours and wages of banksmen, the administration of the Minimum Wage Act, and the question of extra pay for night work—were dis- cussed at the Monday meeting of the Coal Trade Conciliation Board for South Wales and Monmouthshire. Mr. Evan Williams presided over the owners' section, and Mr. W. Brace, M.P., over the workmen's representa- tives. The latter stated that some com- plaints had come to hand from various districts that men who claimed their minimum wage were not properly treated. It was arranged that this matter should be more fully discussed at the next meeting, when evidence, it was hoped, would be forthcoming. The board failed to agree upon the rate of wages to 1>0 paid to the banks- men, and Mr. Evan Williams, on behalf of the owners, said that they eould not increase the previous offer. Tho workmen's representatives also asked for the payment of five turns as for six for night workmen in all col- lieries, but the owners also refused to consider this matter, stating it was a breach of the Conciliation Board agree- ment. Mr. Vernon Hartshorn urged the Conci'iation Board to try and put an end to the stoppage at the Cynon Col- liery, and Mr. Evan Williams and Mr. Brace were appointed to deal with the matto. —————
MURDERER FAINTS ON HEARING I SENTENCE On being sentenced to death for the murder of his wife by stabbing her, Charles Longmore, a WaJsaJI chimney sweep, fainted in the dock at Stafford Assizes on Tuesday. The jury recom- mended him to mercy on the ground of king-continued provocation. ———————
BRITAIN'S RUSSIANISED COLONY I From the executive of the South African Labour party a manifesto, dated January 29, was received in London, on Tuesday in which the point is made that three of the men deported were arrested before the declaration of a general strike, and be- fore a proclamation of martial law, and imprisoned without charge. Hundreds of others had been arrested and imprisoned under martial law without charge or trial, including 200 in Boksburg alone. "Prohobition of all public and news- paper criticism except what is favourable to the Government still continues," adds the manifesto, "and this applies equally to the publication of the facts which are inconsistent with the thoory of a 'treason- able conspiracy.'
CWMLLYNFELL 1 FOOTBALL DISAPPOINTMENTS I Both local iootball teams suffered dis- appointment n Sa.turd<1Y, the teams which they had arranged to meet having reomtl y dizbanded. The first eleven should have entertained Stepney in a League fixture. To accommodate this team they changed tha venue of the first game of the season, consenting to play on the Stepney Ground instead of at Cwmllynfell, and now when the return P",9 should have b-eon P'?'? on the local field, the CwmnvnfeIIites ?e de- prived of the gate receipts, which would in the ordinary course, have accrued to their exchequer. The Seconds had an engagement with Gendros Seconds Swansea, and in this case also the local players had already visited the team on their own ground. TC-MORROW'S GAME lo-morrow (Saturday), is likely to prove a real local Derby day, CwTvn- fell playing Brynamma.n on ohe iatter's ground in a friendly match. This should have been played on January 3<si, but through the inability of the Brynamman ites to make all the necessary arrange- ments, it had to be postponed. Great interest is now being taken in the game, and the fortunes of the rival teams forms one of the chief subjects of conversation locally. The Seconds have no match, -Mid therefore the players will no doubt join the number of local spectators who ,v '1 journey to Brynamman to witness th. Firsts' game. "THREE SACRED SPOTS IN WALES." In connection'with the Cwmllynfell Chapel Literary Society, a delightful evening was spent in the Vestry last Wed- nesday, ^when papers on the subject "Some Sacred Spots in Wales" were read by lady members, and were of a very interesting and illuminating character. The Rev. D. Jeremy Jones presided over a large at- tendance, and the papers were as follows Miss Jane Helena Jones on "Y Groes- wen" (near Caerphilly, where there is a graveyard containing the remains of many eminent Welshmen) Miss Catherine A. Jones, on Llinfa-ehes (where the first Welsh Nonconformist, Church was founded after 1662) and Miss Ma-rv Evans, on "Neuaddlwvd" (in Cardiganshire, where many \Ve!sh missionaries were trained). The papers were thoroughly enjoyed, and were followed by an interesting discus- sion. CWMLLYNFELL CHAPEL The pastor of the Independent Church (the Rev. D. Jeremy Jones), was preach- ing at Aberc.rava on Sunday, and his place at the local chapel was taken by Mr J. A. Davies, of Maesteg, a student at the Brecon Memorial College, who has several relati ves in the village. Mr Da.vies proved himself an excellent preachor, and his services were much ap- preciated. LOCAL BILLIARD LICENSE As we forecasted a few weeks ago, Mr Isaac T. Mathias, Gwilym Ro:d, applied for licence for a billiard room at the Pontardawe Licencing Sessions on Friday last. Ho was represented by Mr Morgan Davies, solicitor. The police did not ap- prove of the license being granted point- in out that th£.ro, were already two billiard rooms in the village, but the Bench said they were disposed to grant the application, and they would defer the matter for a month. BLACK MOUNTAIN PROGRESS A rumous lias been circulated in the daily prt-sg during the week to the effect tha.t a scheme of co-partnership was to be established in connection with the re- opening of the Black Mountain Colliery, but stated that no definite information could -be obtained in regard to the matter. It was understood that each man work- ing at the mine would be asked to take a £ 10 share in the colliery, the payment of such shares to be deducted from wages in weekly instalments of a few shillings each. After exhaustive inquiries, we are enabled to give an explanation of the matter. This scheme was arranged, and had practically been accepted by a good many of the prospective workers, i.9 v able the old company to re-open the pit. Since then, however, the property of the old company was acquired by the new London owners, and the scheme thus fell through, not now being necessary. About fifty or sixty men are now at work in the colliery, and by the end of this week it is expected that mining will have com- menced. NEW COMPOSITION j We are informed that two prominent local composers are at present engaged on the production cf a new operetta., which will shortly be published, and is calcula- ted to meet with considerable success. The authors are Mr Wm. Levi. and Cyn- wal. the bard, and their work is being anticipated with much interest.

I.L.P. "COMING OF AGE MASS CHOIR ORGANISED FOR THE CELEBRATION On April 11 &nd three following days the "coming of age" conference of the Independent Labur Party will be held at Bradford. The proceedings will begin on the open- ing day with vocal and instrumental music, and Dr. Granville Bantock, who has composed a. speciaJ piece for the oc- casion, will conduct a "mass choir," which is being organised in Bradford and the neighbouring towns. The fraternal delegates will be received at this session. It is urged tha.t every branch should be represented. Branches of the party may send one delegate to conference for each 50 mem- bers or part thereof. Should there be uwo or more branches unable separately to sendi delegates to conference they may do so jointly. No branch may be represented which was not in existence on December 31, 1913. « A m »
[ Peer on Working Men I I STOMACHS MORE TO THEM THAN I SOULS Addressing the National Education As- sociation at Westminster, Lord Sheffield opened out on working men regarding the question of schooling, but his speech de- veloped into a general diatribe, in the course of which he suggested that the worker was a slacker, who thought more of his stomach than of his soul. Referring to the improvement of educa- tional facilities for the workers, he said, "We all want them to raise their position. In private people say the working man is 'too uppish,' but on the platform nobody dreams of saying it; they are all for the working man? (Laughter.) I am for the working man, but for doing him most good by lifting him and making him in- dependent, and giving him initiative to fit his own battles." The working man himself, however, de- clared the speaker, attended conferences, and passed magnificent resolutions of a sweeping character, but when he came back to the town he forgot all about it. He did not even'run a candidate, and if he did it was for "free meals through the holidays." Thus, the working men were thinking much more of the stomach tha.n of the soul. He thought it was high time to tell the working man that he should have a stronger sense of his duties, not only to himself, but to his children, and to the community. Whether the work- ing man was with them or not, he was very slack. —

YSTRADGYNLAIS I NOTES. I BRECON SPORTSMAN'S FINE -CATCH. Fishing in the river Usk at Senny- bridge on Monday last, Mr. H. Atkin- -eon, of the newly-established Sports' Depot, Mond's-buildings, Union-street, Swansea, caught two magnificent trout, weighing 3 and 2^1bs., respectively. The largest fish was one goot ten inches long, with a width of 5 inches, and the smaller trout 1 foot 6 inches, with a width of 3i inches. The trout have been on view at the new establishment in TTnkm-street, and have attracted con- siderable attention. I .SEVEN MONTHS WITH A BROKEN BACK. Whilst following his employment as A, colllei- at the Wernplemis Colliery on July 22nd, of last year, Cornelius Morris (27), a single man living at Williarn-street, Yniscedwyn, was buried under a fall of roof, and although he -sustained only slight external injury his spine was injured. Dr. Walsh at- tended Morris, but said that the case was hopeless, although it was probable lie would linger for months. Morris was removed to the Swansea Hospital, but the case was considered incurable, and finally he was transferred to the Swan- — sea Union Infirmary, where he suc- --cumbed on Saturday morning. During the whole of the seven months deceased was practically helpless, and was com- pelled to lie in one position. "THE CINEMA. The chief "turn" at the Cinema this week has been Duval, who has present- ed a series of scientific experiments ,? c, d a of es(l,?? ent rtl.i city. His &ensa- with the aid of electricity. His sensa- tional escape from the electrocution chair surrounded by a cage through which ran a high voltage of electricity caused the audience to gasp. The volt- age running through the cage is so high that with the aid of a carbon he is able to strike an arc in any part of the cage or chair. It is an astounding performance, and must be seen to be believed. The Giitans, in their comedy, harmony and patter, just suit an Ys- tradgynlais audience, and their contri- butions were hai'ed with laughter. loud and long. "He of the Dial," yclept Fred liojjers, sang two songs, causing the audience to hurst their sides. This Friday and Saturday evenings that great military picture "For the Flag" will be the "star." As will be seen from the advertisement in another column there will be an entire change in the -style cf the performance next week, Hermyn's Enchanted Fountains being the star "turn." Fred Hanna., song and whirlwind dance artist, is bound to be a success, and Will Pritchard, celebrat- -ed dame comedian, from many of the leading pantomimes should attract largo audiences.

LO^ AL ARTIST'S FINE WORK All the scenery In connection with the operetta "The Prince and the Demon," performed by the members of the Church Juvenile Operatic Society, has been painted by Mr Llew. Morgan, of Brecon road. The drop curtain is a finely executed picture, &r?d represents Ynisoedwyn picture, It is in & r?ma of red and gold drapery. The other scenes represent a garden, and the interior of a palace. In addition there are six "flies," and tho whole of the work reflects credit upon Mr Morgans, who certainly posseses great I talent. THE STORM. I Owing to the wind, several of elec- tric light cables were blown down on Saturday evening, with the result that -a number of business premises were without light. Gas, candles and paraffin lamps had to be requisitioned and basi- ness, anyhow, was slow. -TARGET—EVANS. I Tho marriage has taken place between I Mr Richard jamesi Target, and Miss M. I Evans, of Pelican street. I.L.P. ACTIVITIES I I The annual meeting of the Ystradgyn- lais branch of the I.L.P. was held on Friday evening, when Mr W. R. Williams was elected chairman Air Ben Alexander, vice-chairman; Mr Hugh Powell, secre- tary Mr Ernest Phillips, t.reasurer; Mr Llew. Morgan, financial secretary; Mr Longville Bowen, literature secretary. It was decided that the whole of the d-striet should he properly organized1, and litera- ture systematically distributed, a scheme which should have the effect of bringing many new members into the Party. OBITUARY. The death occurred at Plasycoed, I Cwmgiedd, on Sunday, of Mary James, 61 years of age. Deceased, who was a native of the district, leaves several grown-up sons and daughters. Deceased was well-known throughout the district, and was more popularly known as 'Mari I Shams.' The funeral tock place on Thursday at the Ystradgynlais Church- yard. The recent trip to Swansea by motor car cost the passenger tll lis. It is I probable that next time he goes to town by motor car he will secure the services of an efficient chauffeur. The committee of the Workmen's Library have decided to purchase another full sized billiard table. Ystradgynlais will soon prss3ss more billiard tables than public houses—which is a sign of the times. The newly-ejected Non-Political Club committee decided at their first meet- ing on Monday evening to become affili- ated with the South Wrales Garden Cities and Town Planning Association and made a grant of L2 2s. to the funds. A grant of t2 2s. was also made in response to the appeal for funds in connection with the Welsh National [ Library.
WOOLWICH DOCTOR'S 10,000 CHRIST- I MAS CARDS. Dr. Theodore Maxwell, whose funeral took place at Woolwich, on Tuesday died in the house, 29, The Common, in which l General Gordon was born. Dr Maxwell was engaged for some years in medical missionary work in India. His hobby latterly had been printing in various languages, and during the recent Balkan war he sent out 10,000 Christmas cards to the sick and wounded soldiers of the several States engaged.
I CWMTWRCH AND GWYS NOTES i LOCAL DEATH. The death occurred late on Sunday evening at the Pontardawe Workhouse Infirmary, whither he had been remove-I earlier in the day, of a Cwmtwrch resi- dent, in the person of Mr Daniel Evans, aged 50. Deceased, who Was well known in the locality was formerly employed as a miner, but had followed no occupation lately. He had: been ailing for some weeks. Mrs. Evans passed away some I time ago, but two upgrown children are left. The funeral took place yesterday (Thursday), at Ystradgynlais. I LECTURE AT BEULAH There was a crowded attendance of men at the Beulah Chapel on Thursday evening last when, under the auspices of the local Free Church Council, Dr. J. A. Rawlings, J.P., of Swansea, gave a very fine lecture on "Purity for Men." His hearers were undoubtedly greatly im- pressed by the Doctor's exposure of the moral and physical effects of impurity. Mr David Bowen had been announced to preside, but he was unable to attend through indisposition, and his place was taken by Mr B. Williams, Gilwen House. MARRIAGE WALKER-DAVIES. An interesting local marriage took place on Saturday at the Pontardawe Registry Office, the contracting parties being Mr Tom Waiker, eldest son of Mr and Mrs. T. Walker, and Miss Beatrice Davies, youngest daughter of Mrs. Davies, dress- maker, of the Wern, Ystalyfera. Both are well known in the locality, and re- ceived the best wishes of a large number of friends. I BLAENCWM COLLIERY Further information is now to hand concerning the reported find of coal at the Blaencwm Colliery. It was freely stated during last week that a new seam had been struck, but we understand this week that this is not correct, although there are hopes that borings higher on the hills will be successful. I ENJOYABLE GWYS FUNCTION The annual tea and concert in connec- tion with the English Gospel Mission took place last evening (Thursday), at tha Temperance Hall, Gwys, and was much enjoyed. A good number assembled for tea, and in the evening, when Dr. Owen presided, an ,excellent entertainment con- sistin.g of songs, recitals and choruses was given by the Rhiwfawr Juvenile Choir, under the leadership of Mr D. C. Owen. ——————— <———————
I FAT HEADED FOOLS." NONCONFORMISTS & DISESTABLISH- MENT PETITION Scenes of uproar, accompanied by pun- gently-uncomplimenta,iy remarks, were the features of a, mooting on Tuesday of the Abergele and Prestatyn (North Wales) District Council. The trouble arOEe, over a reference said to have been made by Mr Morris, tha chairman, in regard to the petition by Nonconformists against the Welsh Church Disestablishment Bill. A paragraph ap- peared in a local newspaper to the effect that, having been asked for his views on the Church petition to be signed by Non- conformists against the Disestablishment Bill, Mr Morris replied "That petition is the invention of the Devil, blessed by the Bishop of St. Asaph, and believed in by fat-headed fools." During the proceedings of the council Captain Hannah, said that had that re- mark been made by the chairman in his private capacity no one would have taken notice. A scene of uproar followed. The mem- bers became excited and took sides. The chairman thumped the table and said that if they were going to have a fight he would fight to the end. Captain Hannah I left this place as a youngster of 14 about 47 years ago, and I managed to keep my end of the stick fairly well, and here I come and have a man who has never been 10 miles from home calling me a fat-headed fool. (Up- roar) Mr Perkins Do you call the Noncon- formists who signed the ptffltion fat- headed fools ? The Chairman.: I do emphatically. Subsequently the chairman's statement that he had not used the words in his official capacity was accepted. —
At the Masons' Arms, Gliaia, on Thursday evening, Mr. Russell Davies, Alltwen, conductor of the H. N. Miers R.A.O.B.

Newbery, who made the pre- sentation of an illuminated address and marble clock to Mr. Davies. Mr. W. Griffiths, the new conductor, spoke, and a musical programme followed.

LAKE THE Bookseller, YSTRADGYNLAIS HOW TO CURE A COLD ADVICE TO THOSE WITH WEAK LUNGS AND CHEST The uaual symptom of the commence- mieni of "cold" which may be a source of great iucenvertience and pain for weeks, is a running at the nose. This sets up inflammation of the mucous mem- branes or the lining of the throat and nose and inflammation of the bronchial tubea follows, an d the result is that the patient is probably laid up for days, sometimes weeks. Life is made miser- able, and the patient knows no rest an til he or she has got rid of the oom- plaint. Friends all devise different remedies and in a very short time, un- less the so-called "cures" have succeeded in making the patient ten time worse than before, the neglect of applying the proper remedy at the proper time is re- gretted. Amongst the so-called remedies which flood the market the only really efficient reme dy is Bee's Balaam. This marvellous compound is an exceptionally cure and safe preparation and is the re- sult of many years' careful study. In asthma, bronchitis, and all affections of the chest and lungs there is nothing more efficacious than Bee's Balsaam. It may be obtained from Mr J. Harris (London Major Pharmacist), Pharmaceutical, Agricultural and Dis- pensing Chemist, and from Mr T. Harris, M.P.S., Seven Sisters. Sold by all Chemists at Is.1-id. per bottle.
