I SWANSEA BOXING CONTEST YSTALYFKRA MAN'S GOOD SHOW. At the tournament in Swansea for the war Prisoners' Fund promoted by the "Post," there was a spirited 15- round contest for a J315 purse between Alf. Langdon, Ystalyfera, and Bat McCarthy Penarth. Major James, 23rd Welsh Regt., and Captain German were the judges. The first round was uneventful. In the second round Langdon narrowly missed getting home a decisive upper- cut that sent McCarthy to the ropes. In a melee of To odv blows Langdon's long reach s howed to advantage. The last round was McCarthy's, but the Ystalyfera lad througho-nt put up a splendid fight, and it was announced that the judges disagreed and the ver- dict, was a draw. .-so
CENTENARY OF MINER'S I SAFETY LAMP. HUMPHRY DAVY'S INVENTION TO I FIGHT FIRB-DAMP. Miners in the North are this week celebrating the centenary of the intro- duction of the Humphry Davy safety lamp, which was introduced on Jan. 10, 1816. Sir Humphry Davy's invention was really an outcome of the terrible calamity at Felling Colliery, Durham, on May 85, 1812, when 92 pitmen were killed by an, explosion The disaster aroused widespread sympathy, and the public clamoured for some insurance against its repetition, with the result that the Society for the Prevention of Accidents in Coal Mines was formed. The Rev. Robert Grey, then vicar of Bishop wear mouth, was one of the first members, and he invited Sir Humphry Davy, as the leading scientist of the period, to give this vital problem his attention. Davy began his experiments in the autumn of 1815, with fine gauze as an "explosive sieve, as he termed it in a letter to a Durham friend and had perfected them by Christmas. The first safety lamp was tried by a hardy band of pioneers in the workings of Hebburn-on-Tyne Colliery. The actual lamp then used i& one of the treasures of the Geological Museum, Jermyn-street, London. Prior to its introduction coal owners had spent tens of thousands of pounds in elabor- ate but unscientific devices to elimin- ate the risk of explosions from fire- damp. ——— ———
CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTORS. I In the House of Commons, Mr Hogge asked whether men with the colours or who had already attested under Lord Derby's scheme who had coriscien- tious objections, but who enlisted to pre- vent any form of conscription, would be treated in the same way as those who had not attested. Mr. Asquith I think this is a case that ought to be met. Mr. Thorne Will the right hon. gen- tleman give a definition of "conscientious objection ?" MT. Asquith I tried last week, and I will try again. Mr. Will Thorne You will have a job. (Laughter.)

YSTRADGYHLAIS COUNCIL AUDIT- I ANOTHER PRIVATE r MEETING. Vain Protest of Minority. A special meeting of the Ystradgynlais District Council was held on Saturday evening for the purpose of considering' a letter received by Councillor W. D. Walters from the Local Government Board in regard to the recent audit. There was a full attendance of members, ;nd Mr. Tom Williams, J.P., presided. At the outset Mr. David Lewis moved that the matter be discussed in commit- tee. Mr. Lewis Thomas said that since there was so much before the public at present he was afraid it would be detrimental to discuss the matter in camera. It seemed to him they weto afrakl of the Press or something. He would suggest that if anything cropped up which was detrimen- tal to the Council they should ask the reporter not to make a. note of the fact. The Chairman said he had no idea what was in the letter which Mr. Walters had received from tke Local Government Boaæd. Mr. Lewis Thomas remarked that if they discusee-d the matter in private he felt that the ratepayers would become suspicious of the honesty of the Council. Mr. Dd. Lewis said they could be quite as honest in dealing with the matter in committee as otherwise. He did not know what was in the letter as a whole and he therefore moved that the Council re- solve themselves into committee. Mr. Ben Williams (Cwmtwrch} said that a great deal of misapprehension had arisen over the meeting held at Pontar- dawe, and some of the councillors were really being looked down upon for ac- tions which they were not responsible for. In regard to the present meeting one person had 'phoned him on Fridav to the effect that the meeting was to be held that night. That party knew of the meeting through someone. NI r. J. W. Morgan said that some people knew quite well of the meeting, but he was going to second the motion of Mr. Dd. Lewis. In Tegard to the Pontardawe meeting referred to by Mr. Williams there were two meetings held that day, and the reporter did not hap- pen to come to their meeting. That was why it did not appear in the Press. He suggested that an official report be given to the Press of that night's meeting. Mr. Wm. Walters said that he was re- sponsible for calling the meeting for that night on the strength of the letter he received on Sunday from the Local Gov- ernment Board regarding the audit. He had intended calling the meeting for the Thursday, but he was under orders for that day to attend the proposed inouiry at Cardiff by Sir Lawrence Comme over the five per cent, question. Personally he was of the opinion that the letter should be considered first of all in committee before anything was given to the Press. Mr. John Howells said he failed to see that they should be afraid of discussing the matter in the presence of the reporter. Mr. D. R. Morgan said that at the meeting held in Pontardawe Mr. Jestyn Jeffreys took first opportunity of bringing forward his report in regard to certain errors, so that he could place the views of the Council before the Local Govern- ment Board. He was sorry the Press was not represented at that meeting and he was of opinion that night that the report of the L.G.B. should be discussed pri- vately and an official report given to the Press. Proceeding, Mr. Morgan said it was his intention to call a meeting of the Abercrave ratepayers and submit every- thing to them. He was not only going to give the side of Mr. Morgan who had taken the opportunity of 6howing the matters up, but he was also going to give the Council's side. So far-thev only had one side and he felt convinced that when the matter was explained to the rate- payers, they would confirm the action of the Council. The Chairman asked if there was any amendment. Mr. Lewis Thomas said, he failed to see why the meeting should be in camera. He was sure it would prove detrimental to the Council. Mr. John Howells If the meeting is to be private I am going to leave the Council to-night. Mr. Lewis Thomas moved and Mr. J. Howells seconded, that the Press should remain. Three voted for the amendment, name- ly Messrs. Ben Willta-ms (Cwmtwrch\ Lewis Thomas (Gwys), and J. Howells (Ystradgynlais), and six against. The resolution was thereupon declared carried and the reporter withdrew. I THE OFFICIAL REPORT. The following is the official report which has since been supplied to the Press :— j At a special meeting of the Ystrad- gynlais Rural District Council held on Saturday, Jan. 6th, a. letter was read from the Local Government Board to Councillor W. D. Walters, the former chairman of the Council, with refer- ence to the audit cf the Council's ac- t counts for the half year ended 31st March, 1915, and the same was dis- cussed at length and a reply to the Local Government Board was formulat- ed and ordered to be signed by Mr. W. Walters and despatched to the Local Government Board in due course, and it was decided that in the event, of the Local Government making any reply or further comment upon the letter sent, or not, that a statement of the facts referred to in the Board's letter be reiported upon and supplied to the Press for publication. ————— -0
I RETIREMENT OF "VOLANDER. The congregations of Pentretygwyn, Cefnarthen, and Bethesda Congregational churches, near Llandovery, received with regret an Sunday notice from the Rev. J. Volunder Jones, the widely-known bard and cieteddfodwr, of his intention, acting on medical advice, to resign the pastorates n three months' time. The rev gentleman underwent an opera- tion some time ago, and his general health has suffered. H is sphere of work I too, is very extensive. His ability has been recognised throughout the Princi- pality. and he is widely known as an eisteddfodwr. He has travelled and con- tributed extensively to the Wel11 Press. He was for some years at lÆs Angeles, California, and was also at Newcastle, Pennsy lvania. Fie has been in charge of his present churches for about ttn years, and was, previows to going to America, at. Trec&stle. Breconshire. -doo
I NO SUNDAY POST. It is said that the postal i authorities are considering abolishing the Sunday p(-.st throughout the coun- try. Such a step would mean a big saving of niosey. Sunday overtime is very expensive. The staff have always complained of Sunday labour and would be glad to hear that there is a prospect of its abolition in all but a small degree among postment and j sorters. Therhas been no delivery of letters on Sunday in London for many years, and there k only one collection, and that at midnight. It will be a good thing for postal workers if the whole country is brought into line with London.
I HOW MILK IS MADE. I CARMARTHENSHIRE SURPRISE. I A startling statement was made to the- Carmarthenshire Health Committee on Tuesday. Mr. W. J. Thomas, LLjiartb- ncy, presiding. Mr. David Roderick, in- spector, reported that on visiting a cer- tain place he found a quantity of milk powder, which it was admitted was used to make milk when sufficient was not available from tke fcrms. He did not think it was possible to prosecute under the Foods and Drugs Act because the milk made from the powder, on analysis, would show the same eonst'tuents as pure milk, but the Board of Agriculture might- instit-ute a prosecution under the Mer- chandiso Marks Act because the milk was- labelled as "new milk." Ald. W. J. Williams fBrynamman) said. he thought Carmarthenshire would be tha- in the world where they wwuld find railk powder mixed and turned out. j as new milk. It never entered the head s, i of the County Council that it was pos- ible to send out from C.rR-iarthensliire a spurious article. In order to protect the tanners of the count-v and the con- suaers he hoped the'committee would sup i p<.rt the i?vpectrr. lie moved that the- attention of the Board of Agriculture be called to the matter. This was agreed to. ————— a. —————

PAPER STRING. So soarce have supplies become of stripcP that efforts have been made to find an effective substitute, and an engineering- firm has now, after a number of experi- ments, begun the manufacture of string made from paper. In appearance the new string is similar to the genuine article, and it is difficult to see any difference.
