AMMANFORD MILK THEFT. 1 A sequel to the milkmen's strike was heard at Ammanford on Monday when the magistrates dealt with charges against tour boys of having broken into a railway van at Pantyftynon and stealing 48 tins of condensed milk, valued at £ 1 10s. 3d., which they sold to fourteen householders, who were charged with receiving the goods. Mr. T. H. fudford prosecuted on belialf of the Great Western Railway Company. The boys pleaded guilty, and the othN defendants stated they bought from the boys because the latter said they were selling the milk for a man who j had a shop at Garnswllt. Two of the j boys, against whom there was a pre- vious charge of breaking into a house, were wrdered nine strikes each of the birch, and the othor two six strokes each. The magistrates were inclined to believe the elder defendants bought the milk in ignorance, and dismissed the case against them.

NEATH AND BRITON FERRY MRS. l'ANKHUBSrS VISIT. On Saturday afternoon Mrs. Pank- hurst paid her long expected visit to Briton ferry, and addressed a public j meeting on "The Women's Party." | There was a large gathering present, but there were more than wo.aen. Mrs. Pankhurst advocated the formation of a braaich of the party ZIL Iii-itiii Ferry, and urged the j people to give their whole-hearted sup- perrI; to the Government towards the success!ul prosecution of the war. She criticised the attitude taken up hy the )OeletV, and stated that should ti carry out their policy of "down t lis" there were thousands of women in England ready and willing to take their place, and moreover, they were quite able to do their work. Her address evoked great enthusiasm, and the meeting terminated with the usual vote of thanks. THE LOCAL A.S.E j Mrs. Pankhurst's remarks respecting the engineers are being strongly re- sented by the members of the A.S.E. in the Ferry, as they think that such remarks will only alienate the sym- pathies of those members who have so loyally :ru pportssi the Government dur- ing the last three years. Re-Start.—The munition works re- started on Thursday morning in this locidity, after a fortnight's idleness owing to the after-effects of the briik- layers' strike. All is now in full swing. "• War Aims.—An open-air meeting in support of the War Aims of the Government was held near the Dock Hotel, Briton Ferry, on Monday, when an excellent address was delivered by Mr. G. H. Paton. The meeting was held under the auspices of the National War Propaganda Movement. The Moulders. At their branch meeting 011 Sunday the Amalgamated Society of Moulders and Pattern Mak- ers decided unanimously to affiliate with the Labour Party and to giv*. their support to the official Labour candidates at the next general elec- tion. Special Services.—Large crowds a t- tended at the Forward Movement Mission Hall, Neath, on Sunday, when Rev. Daniel Hughes (late Pontypool), now Sergt. Daniel Hughes, R.A.M.C., was the special preacher. On Sunday evening Mr. Hughes was especially in- teresting, introducing into his sermon various experiences of his work at the front. He has been on active serrice over three years. Bethel (M.C.), Melyii.-On Thurs- day evening the delegates from the W. Glam. Monthly Meeting paid their annual visit to Bethel (M.C.) Melyn- crythan to inquire into the state of the cause there. After their investiga- tions were completed they commended the church upon their labours, especial- ly their care of the children, and urged them to be faithful during these troub- lous time. The delegates this year were Rev. D. Hughes, B.A., Seven Sisters, and Mr. Wm. Jenkins, Aberdulais. Mr. J. Hugh Edwards, M.P.—Anni- versary services will be held next Sun- day at the English Congregational Church, Briton Ferry, when Mr. John Hugh Edwards, M.P. for Mid-Glamor- gaJl, will be the special preacher. Mr. Edwards will deliver a lecture on Mon- day evening on "The House of Com- mons," for the benefit of the cause. Gambling.—It is gratifying to learn that the remarks made in this column a few weeks ago regarding the preva- lence of gambling have had a good effeH. There is another habit that is gaining ground very muoh ameng some of the young people who are earning good money at the local works here. I heard last week of two young men who have been sending 15s. weekly for some time with ceupons forecasting football results, and I am told that from one works alone there is no less than j35 to £ 6 sent away weekly by young boys who, even when they win, never re- ceive anything from these parasitical bookmakers. It is time measure were taken rendering this gambling by post illegal. Peane.-Undor the auspices of the Women's Peace Crusade, a lecture was delivered at Jerusalem Chapel, Briton Ferry by Mrs. Despard. To a Fallen Sold ier.—On Sundav evening at Bethel (M.C.) Chapel, Bri- ton Ferry, a memorial service was held for Pte. Hopkin Hughes, Pfirk-street, who lost his life in a recent engage- ment. Rev. Wm. Richards, Amman- ford, a former minister &f the church, conducted the service, at the close of which the organist played the Dead March in "Saul." Pte. Hughes has left a wife and four children with whom much sympathy is felt. He was j a. faithful member of Bethel, and was very popular in the Ferry. He had j only been in France a month when he was killed. I ——
