CRYNANT. On Sunday last the annual "Cymanfa Ganu Undebol" was held at Salem Chapel. The conductor was Prof. David Evans, Mus. Bac., Cardiff, who, at the evening service expressed how pleased he was to renew his old friendships locally, and to find that the choir had done ex- ceedingly well, taking into consideration that tno programmes had been only pub- lished six weeks. At the children's ser- vice in the morning the Rev. J. Morgan, Bethania, presided. In the afternoon Mr W. Morgan (Ynis- wen), presided, when a paper was read by Air iNuuh Jones on "Ieuan Gwyllt" as a musician. At the evening service Mr D. Jeffrey, A.C., presided over a crowded congregation, when Mr J. E. Jones read a paper on "WiU'ams Pajitycelyn" as a bard. The successful competitors in the competition for composing adults' and children's songs for next year's Cyman- fa were, for adults, Mr D. R. Morgan, and children's, Mr Roderick Evans. The organist and pianist for the occas- ion were Air W. D. Howells and Miss G. Garbett. COMPETITIVE CONCERT A competitive concert was held at Salem Chapel on Monday evening, Mr H. Jeffreys, presiding. Mr D. Pricie and Mr D. Hopkins (Dewi), were adjudicators of music and literature respectfully. The awards were as follows :—Solo for child- ren under 10, Master Tommy Hughes, Ashgrove; recitation for children under 10, Master D. Idris Evans soprano solo, Mrs. W. Donavon, Brynawel; open reci- tation, Miss Dorothy Edwards, Mcesyr- haf. PANCAKE TEA AND ENTERTAIN- MENT On Shrove Tesday a pancake tea was held at the Church schoolroom by the St. Margaret's Church. The following presided at the different tables :—Mrs. Cadogan and Miss Harris; Mrs. Jenkins and Mrs. Jones; Miss E. J. James and Miss Evans; Mrs. P. Davie-i and Mrs. Harris; Misses B. Wines and C. Cadog- an; Mrs. James and Mrs. W. L. Wil- liams. After all had partaken of the good things prepared, aai entertainment was held in the evening, when the hall was crowded. The Rev. D. Morgan occupied the chair, and the following artistes took part :— Pianoforte solo, Miss Gladys Thatchell; songs by Misses S. B. Evans, M. W. Donavon, L. Wince, P. Jones, Sally Lewis, and chorus of Sunday School Scholars recitations by Mss M. Cadogan, Glyn Davies, Johnny Williams, Harold Jenkins, and another. A duett was given by Mifts S. B. Evans and Miss C. Cadog- an; dialogue by Gwennv Rees, V. Sedge- more, S. J. Aplin, S. J. James, B. Jen- kins aaa;.Q. Ca,clogaiLl The arrangements were well carried out by Mr G. Cadogan and Miss M. Harris Wo regret to note that Mr Rhys Jones, the precentor at Godre'rhoe Chapel has been indisposed for the last few weeks, suffering from an attack of severe influ- enza. We trust his recovery will be speedy. At the Assessment Committee held a.t Neath on Thursday, there were only two applicants locally for reduction in the rateable vaJue of the last list. We learn that one of the Parish Councillors was in the fray, and made a. good fight for re- duction. The result of his appeal is not yet to hand. FOOTBALL T The First XV. on Saturday last were entert,-i-iil,-d by Bryncoch in a cup tie match, and resulted in a win for the visitors by 7 points, to 5, but we find that an objection has been lodged by the local committee against the Junior League Neath, and they have docidted to give Crynant the option of a. replay or leave it entirely to the decision of the Neath Junior League. If Crynant Committee care for ad- vice on the point, decide for a replay, as on the run of play last Saturday, the best team lost, through the lucky drop goal of Bryncoch. Our First XV. have qualities that ought to get them the cup this year. ♦

BRYNAMMAN NOTES. I YNYS AMMAN COLLIERY I A restart was made here the end of last week. Mr Jeffries, formerly of Tir- bach, Ystalyfera, has been appointed manager, in succession to Mr Richard Wilhams. Llandilo road, the resigning manager. Active preparations for a ooncert on St. David's Day are being made at the local schools. The Moriah children are also similarly engaged, a special social tea ajid coxice-it being announced for St. David's Day's celebration, to be held on Monday. PUBLIC. HALL INNOVATIONS I After nine years continual daily service the billiard table affixed at the Public Hall is to bel renovated. Throughout the years, this table has held and maintained the position of easy first favourite, with the billiard playing public;, and to enable it to further con- tinue to do so, the present overhauling hits been decided: upon. It is remarkable, especially in view of the table's maintained reputation, that only twice has the cloth been renewed during the ill iic, years. This says a lot for the makers, Messrs. Burroughs and Watts, but to a grecttr extent does the credit reflect oil the caretaker, for the assiduous attention and vigilant care he has bestowed upon it. At the Cinema, a cha.nge in the manage- ment has taken place during the week. During his stay in Brynamman, Mr Ilex, the out-going manager, has gained the re- spect of all. With the new ma.na.ger, we are promised that the Pala-ce is to enter on a new lease of life. CWMLLYNFELL EISTEDDFOD ? I At Cwmllyntell Eisteddfod on Saturday of last week, our budding young elocu- tionist, Miss Gweimie Mary Thomas, Goleufryn, was again successful. Thcugh only five yea,rs of age, she has won several prizes, and recently captured the silver rnedal out of 10 competitors at Cwmgorse for a recitation confined to children under 10 years. I CWMLLYNFELL FOOTBALL I The game between iJrynamman ana Cwmllynfell has at last been played. Cwmllynfell won by 1 try to nil. Saturday's game could nob be taken as any criterion of the merits of the teams, as Esgyrn Park was on that day a vast bog with players and touch judges up to their ankles in mud. Mr T. Elliot, W.R. U., Swansea, acted as referee. The game was well fought under the conditions, but had Cwmllynfell kept their original fixture, when Brynamman were at full strength, they might very well hjive retired a beaten team. I ACCIDENT I I .L I A nasty accident occuirea oji i-ne G.W.R. line on Tuesday evening. A young lad named George Overland, hail- ing from London, and engaged at the Glynbeudy Tin works, was pioceeding to work along the line about 5 o'clock in the a fternoon. When on the bridge crossing the Amman, by Brynbach, a luggage train caught him up, and in endeavouring to get clear of the bridge the unfortunate lad was caught under the engine. One leg was practically severed, and the other badly torn. After being attended to by Dr. J. W. Lewis, he was taken in the doctor's motor to Swansea. Hospitfcl, where he now lies in a critical condition, both limbs having been amputated. I. FUNERAL r'I 1. At the new Gibea Cemetery on Satur- day. the remains of the 11 month old son of 'Mr and Mrs. Tom Jones, Cwmgarw Bridge, were buried. The- luneral was a very large one, the Rev. H. 0. Jones, Ebenezer officiakd It is but a couple of months since Mr and Mrs. Jones lost another child. Much sympathy is felt with them in their be- reavement. GYMNASIUM -DISPLAY At the Vestry Hall last work, the St. Catherine's Gymnasium Club met the Sketty Club in a friendly exhibition. The Brynamman contingent being mostly re- cruits of barely a year's standing, did re- markably well, especially in the first few exercisers. Sketty, however, finally raai ,out victors by 11 points. Ex-Sergt. G. Henley acted as judge, and proved an adept. A miscellaneous concert concluded a night's splendid en- tertainment. Miss S. A. Rees acccm- panied, and Mr Williams, Gem, and Mr D. J. Davies, Goleufryn, contributed solos. an d Home The local Ambulance and Home Nursing Classes held at the Upper Schools are now in full swing, and w-11 appreciated. I HERMON CONCERT L1]_.

In re- cognition of his services as architect of the new vestry, Ald. W. J. Williams was presented with a substantial travelling bag and dreesing case. Mr John James, chairman of the meeting, handed over the gift. The G.C.G. loco. jumped the rails near Cwmllynfell Station on Wednesday even- ing, the six wheels having left the track.

DULAIS MINERS AND THE SHORTER SATURDAY I Employers' Disappointing Reply PROBABLE DEVELOPMENTS-PIT. HEAD BATHS. Contrary to the hopes and beliefs of a .considerable number of workers in the Dulais Valley, the conference between Mr E. Evans Bevan, J.P., of Neath, and the men's representatives on the shorter Saturday agitation, has terminated in an- .other deadlock, and it is not yet certain what the future developments will be. This agitation has now been In progress for several months, and on more than one .ooca.sion the miners have made every effort to obtain a final settlement of the -question. "In the first place, individual -colliery committees made the application for a stoppage at one o'clock instead of .3 pm. on Saturday afternoon, and this met with a refusal at the owner's hands. Upon receipt of this reply a consider- cable number of the men were eager to hand in nottcea to bring the matter to an early and definite issue, but subsequently the matter was taken in hand by the South Wales Federation, as a result of which Mr Beva.n consented to receive a deputation from the Seven Sisters works -committee, together with the chief agent '(Mr J. D. Morgan), and the Federation representative (Mr Enoch Morrell). As forecasted in the "Llais" last week, the deputation met Mr Bevan at Neath on Friday, representatives of the joint work- men's committee being also in atendaaice near by. The inembers-of the deputation laid the case for the men in an admirable ni-ainner, pointing out in justification of the miners' request that the circum- stances were quite exceptional through- out the whole of the Anthracite area. Mr Bevan in his Teplv sttted that he was not disposed to make the alteration as desired by the men and said that even if he were he would be prevented from doing so by the rules of his own associa- tion.. Since that time, Mr Bevan's decision has boeoi conveyed to the S.W.M.F. Executive, and the replv is being awaited with much eagerness and some specula- tion. VIEWS OF MR GEORGE JONES, CHECKWEIGHER. Interviewed on Wednesday by our re- present itive, Mr Jones, check- "weigher at the Seven Sisters colliery, gave his opinions on the present position for the benefit of "Llais" readers. Mr Jones said I am afraid the short Saturday will not now be granted, even at the cost of a strike, permission for which I do not think will be given by the Executive. I now believe that the men are drifting towards a demand for pit- head baths as an alternative to the re- duction in hours, and some would now prefer this to the short day, having re- gard to the fact that the latter seems almost hopeless. "You do not think the Executive would agree to the adoption of the strike w,eapon ? "I am afraid not," said Mr Jones, "for the reason that this would mea.n that the I Masters' Association would have to be fought, and we have to remember that this is only a sectional demand. It does not affect the whole coalfield, and the probability is that all the workmen of South Wales would not be prepared to support one section in a matter of this kind. The case would be different if all the mi ilea's were asking for the shorter Saturday. Mr Jones added that the men were ready to fight the matter out if they could see that the end would be success- ful, and would be willing to sacrifice a great deal if they could hope for the de- mand being guaranteed, but it was little use taking this step without some possi- bility of achieving their object. Referring to the pit-head baths ques- tion, Mr Jones re-emphasised the fact that the proposal was gaining considerable support among the men, and reminded them that the owners were compelled to provide them if two-thirds of the workers desired theon. On the other hand, the men have to contribute to their main- tenance, but this would be comparatively slight. W —————— »»,»
I UNHAPPY LIBERALS. I In view of the Labour opposition, the Portsmouth Liberal Seven Hundred have adopted the recommendations of the exe- cutive to run only one candidate at the next General Election. The voting was 198 votes to 75 and an amendment that two candidates be run was defeated. This discussion was of a heated charac- ter and distinctly showed that just now the Liberals are by no means a happy family.
—————— t r A special meeting of the Licensing Committee of the Carmarthenshire County Council was held on Monday, when an application by Air-S. T.

DULAIS VALLEY CHAT. I (Gan Ymdeithydd.) I The heavy storm which swept over South Wales on Saturday did not fail to leave its traces in various parts of the Dulais Valley. The river rose to a considerable height and overflowed its hanks in many places, whilst build- ings were damaged, trees uprooted, and towards the bottom of the Valley chimney pots were blown down. For- tunately no one suffered personal in- jury, although the damage was con- siderable. SEVEN SISTERS GIRLS' ORDEAL. I Annie Morgan (13), daughter or Mr. John Morgan, Bryncae, Seven Sisters, had an exceedingly unpleasant ex- perience during Monday night, one which also caused no iittle consterna- tion to her relatives and friends. She was missed from her home early dur- ing the evening, and upon her failure to return, her parents, relatives and members,of the local police force, com- menced an investigation which proved fruitless. This occasioned considerable alarm, having regard to the wild and dangerous character of the district, and at 10 p.m., search parties were organised, several groups of men with lanterns going in various directions, such as Onllwyn, Banwen, Colbren. A bercrave and Ystradgynlais. The search was continued throughout the night until four o'clock on Tuesday morning, when a party of searchers on the mountain between Seven Sisters and Ystradgynlais found the child. She had seen the lights and had made her way to them. The girl was removed home in a thoroughly exhausted condi- tion, and when questions were put to her, she said that "Something came over her," and she could not really remember how she got on to the moun- tain. She said she walked about all the time and was almost frozen with cold. 'Fortunately she is now little the worse for her weird experience. INTERESTING GOLDEN WEDDING. Readers of the "Llais" throughout the Valley will join with me in hearti- ly congratulating Mr. and Mrs. David Williams, of Glas Fan, Seven Sisters, who on Thursday had the privilege of celebrating their golden wedding. Botn are well known and much esteemed in the Valley. They were married at Llan- crwys, Carmarthenshire, and came to the Valley about forty years ago, thus having spent practically all their wed- ded life in this district. During that time Mr. Williams has been engaged on the local railway line, and also at the Seven Sisters Colliery, but he has now been retired for some years. Mr. Williams, who is 78, and his wife who is 77, are particularly known as among the founders of the Baptist cause in Seven Sisters, of which they have al- ways remained very faithful support- ters. Upon the opening of the new Baptist chapel in the village nearly two years ago, Mrs. Williams, who per- formed the ceremony, was presented with a golden key. The happy couple, who, it is pleasing to note enjoy good health, have three sons and three daughters, the latter all being mar- ried. They are represented in Wales, England and Scotland, one daughter being married to Councillor D. T. Davies, Seven Sisters, one to Mr. R. Rees, farmer, Hereford (formerly of Pontardawe), and another to the Rev. Enfield Jones, Newcastleton, Scotland. DAVID LEWIS' BENEFIT FUND. I The concert given on Tuesday last at Messrs: Studts' picture house, for the benefit of Mr. David Lewis, Brick-row, was highly successful—the balance sheet forwarded to us this week, clearly in- dicates. The takings totalled R20 15s. 6d., and after all expenses have been met, a balance of J314 4s. 6d. has been handed over to the boneficiarv,an excellent sum. MR. VERNON HARTSHORN AND I LOCAL ELECTORS. I The adoption of Mr. Vernon Harts- horn, of Maesteg, as prospective Labour candidate for the Mid-Glamor- gan at the next general election has been received with much interest in this part of the constituency. The various colliery committees have re- ceived from Mr. Meth Jones, regis- tration agent, a circular requesting that a joint meeting should be ar- ranged for consideration of future plans in the district. No definite steps have been taken up to the present, but the matter will no doubt be brought up at the next joint meeting of the commits tees. During the two previous elections contested by Mr. Hartshorn, strong local support was extended to the can- didate, and he may be assured that this will be repeated at the next fight. Mr. Hartshorn has always been 're- ceived with enthusiasm in the consti- tuency, particulary at Seven Sisters and Onllwyn, and so far as this district is concerned his success appears to 1.e certain. STUDENTS AT TREHARRIS. I About a dozen of the Seven Sisters mining students, accompanied by their instructor, Mr. Richards, of Swansea, paid a visit to the Ocean Colliery, Tre- harris, on Wednesday, making a tour of inspection of this well known mine lasting about four hours. This is said to be the deepest pit in Wales. GRATIFYING RECOVERY. I Mr. James David, of Scranton House, Seven Sisters, one of the en- ginemen at the colliery, who has been ailing for a considerable time from an internal complaint and has been a patient at Neath Hospital for about six weeks, is now well on the way to recovery, and his many friends will be glad to learn that he was removed to the Llanybydder Sanatorium a few days ago. NEW FRIENDLY SOCIETY LODGE. I A local branch of the Rational As- sociation Friendly Society has recently been opened in Seven Sisters, the meet- ings to be held every third Saturday in the month at the Federation offices. Any members in the Valley wishing to transfer from their present branch to the new one can do so at the next 11 meeting in March. The president of the new lodge is Mr. S. Lloyd, Mar- tin's-avenue, and the secretary Mr. E. Thornton, Brick-row. LOCAL WEDDING. A local marriage was celebrated at the Pontardawe Registry Office On Saturday last, the contracting parties being Miss Dorothey Hooper, of Dulais Gardens, and Mr. J. Herdman, of Caerdegar Farm, Seven Sisters. They were accompanied by a number of friends. SUCCESSFUL BENEFIT CONCERT. A large audience assembled on Mon- day evening at the Bryndulais Hotel, Seven Sisters, when a public smoking concert took place under the auspices of the local branch of the R.A.O.B. for the benefit of Bro. Walter Watkins, who recently lost his arm in an acci- dent whilst working at the Brynteg Colliery. Mr. Zachariah Meadows pre- sided over the gathering, which was very orderly throughout, and the en- tertainment was thoroughly enjoyed. Among the contributors to the pro- gramme being Mr. Arthur Thomas, the popular Neath comedian, and the blind boy pianist from Neath. The proceeds are expected to realise a good sum. ONLLWYN CHOIR, CONCERT. As forecasted last week the annuaJ concert promoted on Thursday and Saturday evenings by the Onllwyn Con gregational Chapel Choir, was of a highly successful character, reflecting great credit on the vocalists and those who had trained them. There were really good audiences, and the finan- cial result is also expected to be very satisfactory. The principal parts were taken as follows: Naomi, Madame Richards; Ruth, Miss Ethel Jones; Orpha, Miss Pugh; B(mz, /Mr. David Thomas; first reaper, Mr. John Rich- ards. The conductor was Mr. G. E. Griffiths, and the accompanists, Mrs. Thomas and Mr. Lewis. On Thursday evening the chair was taken by Coun- collor T. Prosser Jones (Seven Sisters) and on Saturday by Mr. \V. Wrilliams, M.E., manager of the Onllwyn Col- lieries. The members of the choir arc now starting to prepare for their an- nual festival to be held on Whit Tues- day.
GWAUNCAEGURWEN GIRL'S I DEATH. The death occurred on Monday at Caenewydd Gwauncaegurwen, of Eliza- beth Maggie Lewis, daughter of Mr. Henry Lewis. Deacesed had suffered from consumption and had been medi- cally attended by Dr. S. Jones, until October last, when another treatment was attempted. An inquest was held on Wednesday afternoon.
