| OTHER THAN COLLIERS." YSTRADGYNLAIS COUNCILLOR AND A DERBY REQUEST. At the meeting of the Brecon County Council, the Chairman intimated that he had received a telegram from Lord Derby asking him to use all his influence in in- ducing eligible men to attest, under the group system. In reply to Mr. T. J. Boucher, the chairman said all "starred" men should attest. Hon. R. C. Devereux said they had already had a complete canvass of the county with a view of getting young men to attest. The County Parliamentary Re- cruiting Committee war of opinion that it would be impossible to embark upon a large recruiting campaign. At the same time they hoped everyone would bring all the influence to bear that they could, so that those who were reluctant might have the interests of the country put to them, and might be induced to join sufficiently soon to give their services before the Military Service Act came into opera- tion. He had had a similar telegram from Lord Derby, and all they could do now was to make this appeal sufficiently public so that county councillors and others might induce young men to attest and thus accelerate their enlistment be- fore compulsion. Mr. T. Prosser Jones (Ystradgynlais) What is the position of miners'! Mr. Gwilym Jones There is a special court dealing with colli-exs-they don't come before us at all. Mr. T. Prosser Jones Does this recom- mendation apply to them? The Chairman I should think not. Hon. R. C. Devereux As quite as ) many colliers have enlisted now as can be spared, the idea is to get those other than colliers to come in. '< "?? -??-
