PONTARDAWE ALLTWEN i GLEANINGS. RESPECTED PONTARDAWE LADY I The remains of Mrs. Mary Jenkins, Uplands, Pontardawe, widow of the late Mr Daniel Jenkins, auctioneer and mother of Mr Owen Jenkins, the Pontardawe newsagent, were interred at St. Peter's Churchyard Pontardawe on Thursday last in the presence of a large and. representative gathering. The service at the house and the Church was taken by the Rev. Joel Davies, V.A. (vicar), and the Rev. J. Jenkins (All Saints). The principal mourners were Messrs. Tom Jsnkins, Owen Jenkins. Lance-Corporal D. Jen- kins (sons); S. J-enkins, J.P. (Cwm- gorse), Daniel Jenkins, auctioneer (Cwmgorse); Tom Evans (Llwynrhid- iau): R. Morgan, Tom Jenkins, W. Jenkins, D. Rees, T. Jenkins. D. Griffiths, M. Jenkins. D. Thomas, etc. Mr Willie Harries was the under- taker. PAVILION LICENSE RENEWED. As explained in our last issue the license of the Pontardawe Pavilion was renewed at the last Council meet- ing, after the plea put in by Mr Wm. Coutts, the proprietor, and by Mr Tom Jeremiah on behalf of the public. The suspension of the license a couple of weeks previously had created a good deal of interest locally, but it should be mentioned at the outset that the Council had never entertained the idea of a permanent auspension of the license. What they wanted to empha- sise was that Mr Douglas Milton, the manager of the Pavilion could not hold Sunday concerts without the permis- sion of the authority which has the power to sanction the license. In this the Council have accomplished what they desired, and the proprietor and manager have been obliged to toe the line The oourse adopted by the Coun- cil will certainly be a lesson to others in the district. THE LLAETHFERCH COMPANY. The Llaethferch Dramatic Company, J of Ynismeudwy, has been booked to give two performances of the Welsh drama "Gruffvdd o'r Glyn" at be Coliseum, Ystalyfera, on Monday i nd I Tuesday, February 7th and 8th. Tl,re I should be large houses. RHYDYFRO FARMER'S WIFE. I The death took place on Friday last at RfivdN-fro Ucha Farm, of Mrs. Gittins,-w-ife of Mr Lewis Gittins. Deceased, who was only 38 years of age, was the daughter of Mr Henry Rees, Gellinudd, and had only been ill for a few days. She leaves a husband and one child, for whom the deepest sympathy is felt. The funeral took I pLace at Cilybebyll Church on Tuesday. MEETING OF THE TRIBUNAL. I The first sitting of the Pontardawe Tribunal for the purpose of consider- ing the appeals under Lord Derby's scheme took place on Monday at the Council Chamber in Holly Street. Mr Morgan Davies (solicitor) was the chair- man, and Mr D. T. Jones (Cwmllyn- fell), vice-chairman; Lieut.-Col. A. Pearson, of Cardiff, was present for the military authorities. There were 58 claims for hearing, but 20 out of this number were not contested by the military authorities. It was explained that the three grades of tinplaters which were starred men were furnace- men, doublers and foremen, although quite a number of the two former grades had already enlisted from the district since the outbreak of war. In regard to rollermen it was mentioned that there was no shortage in the dis- trict of this class of workman. There were a number of appeals from be- hinders, and most of these were post- poned for ten groups, in the hope that some pronouncement would be made at anearly date by the Central authority. In one or two cases by behinders their appeals were refused. Their cases were treated on their merits, and accord- j ing to the conditions prevailing at the works where they were employed. Al- together 24 appeals of a general character were refused, two farmers were starred, and 14 postponed ten groups. The Tribunal started at 10.30 and all the appeals had been dispensed with bv 5 o'clock. The Tribunal will sit again next Friday, February 4th. AT SALONIKA. I A Pontardawe soldier writing home j from Salonika to his mother says that some weeks ago aev?rai Taubes flew over them, and although they dropped bombs, no damage was done, as the air guns of the Allies' would not allow the ueroplances to get very low. In a sub- sequent letter he states that the Allies were preparing for the enemy, and if the latter did come their way, he (the writer) was sure "the enemy would wish they were somewhere else. I TROOPER H. L. MORGAN Among the passengers on the 11.30 train from Pontardawe to Brecon on Wednesday were Troopers Harry L. Morgan, of Clydach, aDd Davies, of Morriston, both of whom joined the Welsh Horse soon after the outbreak of war. The former was the manager of the Ynis Brass Foundry at Ynispen- llwch, Clydach. and has had one brother, Private Archie Morgan, killed at the front. Trooper Morgan has spent a number of years with a trading firm in Southern Nigeria. Trooper Davies is a brother of Mr George Davies, solicitor. Morriston. Both were proceeding to Brecon to join a draft which is about to leave for Mesopotamia. MRS. GEORGE BOWEN DEAD. We regret to record the death which took place at Glanhelyg. Brecon road, Pontardawe, on Tuesday, of Mrs. Ann Bowen, wife of Mr George Bowen, late teamer at Messrs. Gilbertson's Steel Works, and mother of Mr Daniel John Bowen, Frondeg. Alltwen. The de- ceased. wh% was 61 years of age, had been in failing health for some months, but it was about three weeks ago that she was obliged to take to her bed. She was a native of Cilgerran, but came to Pontardawe about 30 years ago. Deceased was of a sociable and kindly disposition, and b.,ia been a faithful member of Zoar (C.M.) Chapel. She had also taken a very keen in- terest in temperance work, and had identified herself very prominently I' with the "Merched y De." The deepest sympathy will be felt for the husband and son in their sorrow. The funeral takes place to- morrow (Saturday)at 2.30 p.m. for Tre- banos (C.M.) Burial Ground. RHYDYFRO FARMER'S DEATH. I The death also took place this week at Brynteg, Gellygron, Pontardawe, of Mr David Harries, after several months' illness. Mr Harries was 68 years of age. and had kept Brynwith Farm on Baran Mountain up to about I 13 years ago, when he retired. It will be recalled that Brynwith Farm was the scene of a murder in the early part, of 1908. Mr Harries was a native of Llandilo, and was held in the hihest respect by all in the (ustnct. t His remains were interred at St. Peter's Church, Pontardawe, on Wed- nesdav afternoon. GELLYNUDD FUNERAL. The funeral of Mrs. Mary Morgan, j wife of Mr John Morgan, late of the Gellynudd Arms, Pontardawe, took place on Monday at Babell, Cwmbwrla.

Pontardawe, and Mrs. Rees, and Mr Llewelyn Williams, son of Mr David Williams, Francis street. The bride, who was given away by her brother-in-law, Mr John T.

ALL SAINTS' CHOIR SOCIAL. ) A most enjoyable time was spent at Gellygron, Pontardawe, the home of Mr and Mrs. C. G. Gilbertson on Wed- nesday night, on the occasion of the annual dinner and social in oonnection with All Saints' Church Choir. There were about fifty present, over which; Mr Gilbertson presided.

Roger H. Edwards, of the Canadian Expeditionary Force, is home again. He returned to Shorncliffe last Monday vrook, and after a few days' stay he was sent home agaip. in pre- ference to being sent to Canada. During his stay at Shorncliffe he contracted a cold, and we are sorry to stat-e that his condition since he re- turned to Pontardawe has caused some anxiety. He has been confined to his bed since Monday. I rSHOPPO'S PREPARING. I A meeting of the Pontardawe Shop Assistants was held at Williams' Coffee Tavern in High street, on Wednesday, for the purpose of preparing evidence for the Shop Hours Inquiry. Comrade Hughes, organiser of the Shop Assist- ants Union, was present, and delivered a convincing addi'ess on the situation. It was decided that he should state the case of the assistants before Mr Huws Davies at the inquiry. Nothing pleases the boys at the front so much as news of home. Send them the "Llaisr> every wee k » ODDFELLOWS AT ALLTWEN. I The annual meeting of the Swansea District Oddfellows, Manchester Unity, was held at the Rock Hotel, Alltwen, on Wednesday.

After the minutes had been confirmed, the elec- tion of officers was proceeded with. Bro. H. Gilling Williams, of Swansea, was elected Grand Master for the year, and Mr Emmanuel Griffiths.

The re- port of the management oommittee. which was 'submitted referred to the amalgamation of several lodges in the district. This was agreed to. The re- port also contained recommendations of grants to disabled members, viz. two of P-25 each, and a further grant of £100 after investigation. It was mentioned that a considerable number of members had joined the forces. In some lodges as many as 25 per cent. of the mem- bers had joined, and it was stated that their contributions were being paid by the various lodges. The announce- ment that Oystermouth Castle Lodge had contributed L75 in this respect caused much interest.

While following his occupation at Tarreni Colliery on Friday night 'last, Mr John Jones, residing at 26 High street, Pontardawe, received severe in- juries through being orushed by some trams. He was conveyed to his home by a number of workmen, and after being medically examined, he was re- moved to the Swansea Hospital. Al- though he received the best attention at the latter place, he passed peace- fully a-way about three o'clock on Sun- day afternoon. The depest sympathy is felt for the widow and two children in their loss. "Jack" as he was well known in the Valley, was only 36 years of age. He was a fine built fellow, standing 5ft. llin. high, and weigh- ing about 12 stone lllbs. He had a large circle of friends, aod was ex- tremely popular. He was also a very keen sportsman. The funeral took place at St. Peter's Church, on Thurs- day afternoon. The report of the inquest will be found in another column. 4am

I CORRESPONDENCE. I I THE I.L.P. AND THE WAR. I To the Editor. J Sir,—I am ode of those who are unable, although anxious to understand the point of view of those members of the I.L.P. who are not only against the war, but palpably pro-German; and also of those who are prevented by their con- sciences," from performing a good citi- zen's highest duty. The futile, angrily foolish attempts at sarcasm of some of my oLd friends in the Labour and Socialist movement, which have appeared in your last, and some reoent issues 01 ine Labour Voice," only serve to make my difficulty more difficult still. To talk of the amount of courage ne-cessary to stand by the cowardly minority who refuse to accept a citizen's plain duty is simply an attempt to cloud a plain issue. That the issue is plain no one, who has not been poisoned by the bitterness of prejudice, will deny. Germajiv has deliberately walked out of civilisation and has gone back to barbarism. Her years of pre- paration and organisation in scientific barbarism is a clear proof that she was bent on somebody's destruction. Can any honest doubt exist as to who that some- body might be? The issue is Should that somebody resist Germany's machina- tions, or allow her a free hand to destroy? I repeat tha.t though honestly anxious to understand, our friends' point of view, I am utterly unable to do so. I have tried to argue and reason the question of their anti-British, pro-Ger- man tendencies with many present-day melmbers of the I. L.P. I am sorry to say that I have found their arguments and reasons confTicting, and am still in the dairk. Some time ago I went to hear what was supposed to be a musical treat given in aid of a local Belgian refugee fund, by one whom someone hn« called "the clown of the I. L. P. "—"Casey. I am afraid the appellation is not happy. I should have called him bY" a name much less pleasant than a clown. In front of his platform sat a crowd of Belgian wo- men and children, victims of the "Kultur" which has bem nurtured at what is evi- dently "Casey's" spiritual home. "Casey's"- music was good, but his reference to re- cruiting was not music. Again, what can one make of the Rev. T. E. Nicholas's pathetic reference in his immortal penny pamphlet, to the harsh treatment of the Germans by the Turcos and Gurkhas. (By the way, one cannot help remarking that Mr. Nicholas's ad- vocacy of lofty principles goes hand-in- j hajid with a keen business instinct.) One wonders whether Mr. Nicholas' very sen- sitive nature has bei*n touched by the reoent extensions of the benefits of Ge.T- man kultur to innocent British women and little children. I wonder if he could go the whole hog with the soul-ful mem- ber of the Skewen I.L.P. who is able to justify the sinking o fthe Lusitania? Mrs. Bruce GIasier appeared here re- cently to preach the gospel of love as a means of establishing peace on earth. As a plain man I cannot see the usefulness of coming here at this juncture to preach the gospel of love. In face of the tra- gedies of Belgium and Serbia, and Poland and Armenia, and the horrors of Zep- pelins and submarines to talk of "love that passeth understanding" is to me, sheer sentimentality. Mrs. Glasier told us of the "good Germans," and convinced 11s that hor svmnafchies asre. mostlv in Germany. Wkv, may I ask, doee not Airs. Glasier go there and imbue the! Germans with her gospel of infinite love ? I am trying to imagine the result. We know that Dr. Lcibknecht has failed bad- ly to infuse a little sense of common de- cency into them. Moreover, being against all wars, Mrs. Glasier was very inconsistent. She oarried our minds back to the classictl ages, and described with great admiration the noble way in which the Greeks resisted the Persian hordes. But if it was heroic and noble and good twenty-four hundred years ago, for the Greeks to resist the Persians on the plain of Marathon, I fail to understand how it is wrong and wicked to resist the German hordes to-day on the plains of Flanders and France. The gospel of love is not a new discovery it is as old as the hills. Mrs. Glasier professed great sympathy with the, Tommies in the trenches. Our soldiers are* praying for more men to help them to save the situation. In the meaiitinie Mrs. Gla-sier is doing her ut- most to induce those men to desist and to stay at home to coddle their con- science. And, by the "way. why did Mrs Glasier appear under the auspices of the local Co-operative Society—a society that is notorious for its anti-Socialist and anti- Labour svmpathies. as proved by the conduct of some of its officers and many of its members at our Socialist and Labour imeetings I WILLIAM G. THOMAS, Skewen. DOES THE CENTRAL EXECUTIVE I REPRESENT THE MEN? To the Editor "Labour Voice." I Sir,—I see by the daily papers that the Executive of the South Wales Miners Federation has unanimously de- cided to ask for the withdrawal of the three Labour Paorty representatives from the Government,-no doubt this is be- cause of the Compulsion Bill. I am of opinion that by this action, and othere in wonmection with the isame matter, the Executive are acting in a most autocratic and high-handed manner. They wish to convey the impression that they speak for the workers in South Wales coalfield as a whole, or at anyrate, an overwhelming majority. But as a matter of fact, thev do nothing of the kind, and I have a suspicion that they know it. If they were so sure oftheir position, why havo they refrained from taking a ballot vote of the members? Ballot vote have been taken on questions of fa,r less importance than this oii, many occasions. It is only fitting that the country should know how the Executive and Conferences arrive at the huge number of votes that are claimed against or for particular issues. I work at. a amaH place named the Gurnos Collerv at Ystvadgynlais, where about 350 men .a.re employed. I am told that a meeting was called before the last Conference at Cardiff, to elect a delegate, I cortainl-Nl did not hear of the meeting until after it was held, and a gTeat number of my fellow-workmen were equally ignorant. This meeting called by word of mouth I should imagine, was attended by about 30 to 40, who proceeded to appoint a delegate, who in turn had the presumption a. day or two afterwards to vote in Cardiff in the name of t? whole 35C-400 men employed at the r??v' At a neighbouring :ol- -,<)Iii(,I-vl A-t q. ne-Rlllx)llri-nv (!Ol- held, and no "delegate was seat to Car- I diff, yet, I fesl sure the Executive will lump the 700-800 employed at two ool- j collieries supporting their attitude. And I h. r:_o doubt that this kind of thing haa taken place all over South Wales. Whatever may be said in favour of the Executive in taking matters into theiir own hands in industrial questions. I contend that in this matter they ought to have been sufficiently democratic to hold a ballot rote. The great body of colliery workers have a good idea of the issues at stake, and if they had had an opportunity of expressing their feelings, I fear the gentlemen who are now strutting about claiming to speak and vote for the South Wales colliery workers would look very small. By an overwhelming majority the vote would hrwe gone in favour of com- pulsion for the single men and, knowing this, the leaders have decided to act accordingly.—I am, yours, One Who is Compelled to be a. Federationiat.
