Betting at Merthyr. I I CHIEF CONSTABLE AND A LOCAL I [ BOOKMAKER t John Phillips and David Theophilus, Mer- thyr. and David Davies, Dowlais, were charged t -at Merthyr on Friday with loitering m High [ Street for the purpose of taking bets. f Mr J. A. Daniel defended Phillips, f Detective Dove said he saw a number of men j hand slips and money to defendant in High treet, Merthyr. When arrested several pounds in money and note and a ''paying-out" slip were. found on defendant. Detective-Sergeant Davies corroborated. I Mr Daniel submitted that it was only an in- ference that it was a paying-out slip found on defendant, and observed that none of the other slips said to have been handed to defendant were founcl on him. Sergeant Dove said that defendant was out of their sight before he was arrested for suffi- I cient time to get rid of the slips. The other two men pleaded guilty, and the I Chief Constable said that to his knowledge Phillips had been making bets in the district practicallv daily. for over 12 months. Mr Daniel objected to this information. The Chief Constable said he was prepared to prove it if necessary. Regarding Theophilus, he had been bookmaking for the past month. He had known David Davies for the past ten yea.rs', "during which time," added the Chief Constable. I have never known him to do an honest day's work." The Chief Constable added that when arrested Davies had the implements for the three-card trick upon him. Then Bench imposed a fine of £ 5 in the case of Phillips and £ 10 each in the cases of Davies and Theophilus.
Llantrissant & Llantwit Fardre Trades and Labour Council. A meeting of the aboye Council was held at the Railway Restaurant, Pontyclun, on Thurs- day. May 18, Mr Gwilym Lewis presiding in the. absence of the Chairman (Mr J as. Dicks). —It was decided that the Secretary should write asking the County Council for the names of the members of the Old Age Pensions Com- mittee; and also to ascertain the names of the Labour members on this committee for this dis- trict.—The Auditors' report and balance sheet were accepted. It is gratifying to learn that ,the balance in hand is considerably more than last year, but there should be much more stan- ding to their credit if branches paid their -dues, according to rule. There is a notice of ?- There 1,, notI i ce, of motion tabled for discussion on Rule 5, which deals with the question of finance. It was decided to ask the South Glami. Labour Party to re-arrange the time of their quarterly meet- ing at Pontyclun, "so as to give the Tonyref- ■aii and Gilfach Goch delegates all opportunity to attend."—It was resolved that the question of secretary pro tern, in the absence of Mr Idwal Williams, who was arrested under the Military Service Act, be referred back to the branches li e-,ol.v.(-d that this Council support u the South Wales Garden City and Town Plan- | ning Association in their endeavour to obtain for AVales one of the Small Holding Colonies 'for Soldiers and Salloi-s.-Resolved that the Secretary should write the few Trades Union I lodges that are not represented on the Coun- cil. to affiliate, and thus strengthen the ranks of Labour.—The delegates' report on the Ra- ting Conference at Pontypridd on May 6 was left until the next meeting.

I TROEDYRHIW f FAREWELL.—The Rev. Rowland Jones, B.A, Troedyrhiw, will preach his farewell sermon next Sunday before leaving for Newport. I.L.P. AND PEACE COUNCIL—The local branch hold their usual meeting last Thursday, when they decided to co-operate with the Pome Council, Merthyr, III a Peace Campaign, under the auspices of the Merthyr and District Peace Council. PEACE MBETING.—An excellent Peace meeting was held at the Tabernacle Hall, Troedyrhiw, last Wednesday, when Mr D. J. Lewis pre- sided over a large audience. Inspiring addresses were delivered by the Rev. J. M. Jones, M.A. (Hope, Merthyr) and Mr W. H, Evans, Merthyr. on "Peace by Negotiation a Peace that will acknowledge the principles of Truth, Right and Justice between the peoples of Eu- rope and the world. A hearty vote of thanks was passed to the speakers.
Gorseinon Notes. I.L.P. Meeting The branch met at the Institute. There were several important business matters to be sett- led- and the meeting proceeded on those lines. The last bit of business was the most import- ant. three lady members joining the branch. This makes five in a month. Comrades Jones, Crouch, Davies, Williams and Rees. Hurrah! My sweethearts Hurrah You have just come in the nick of time. You will be able to keep the flag flying should the machinations of the Military Service Bill (No. 3) affect our branch. Will you bespeak to other ladies to join? My heart bids me put names down that you may know who they are, but I am short of ink. If you have a little darning or plain sewing, bring them to the meeting; I shall thread the needles for you. Well, I must leave the ladies now and give a heartywelcome to Comrade Terry Williams, who has joined the I.L.P. Now, Terry, don't forget the Pioneer"! Comrade W. Davies, of Brighton Road, who proposed you, will see you get one. I may say if you prove as good as Bill Davies, you're a stun- ner. Bill Davies sold 20 copies for me this week, and got some lady members. The busi- ness of the I.L.P did not proceed without an interruption; our ex-president entered the room (after six months' absence), and we gave him, a good Yorkshire roar." His reply was ex- cellent. The I.L.P. bond was much in evid- ence. Would that the churches could realise that "bond"! It would save the Governments of European nations much heart burning. Com- rade W. H. Davies then gave a ten minutes' speech on "Peace." He could not have attain- ed his object, for it caused something like a battle (intellectually). While delivering his oration a quiet smile played round his lips as he gave a sly dig to several com- rades. During the discussion the eagle eye of David Morris was well to the fore. His method of handling forces should commend itself in another quarter. A pleasant evening conclud- ed by an appeal for unity in the near future from the chairman. Readers of tie "Pioneer" are given a special invitation to the I.L.P. meetings every Tuesday at 7 o'clock. I guar- antee you no shucking out. The branch sent a letter of condolence to the relatives of our old friend Agnes Brown to be brief, one of the best organisers I ever met. The pleasant memories-of her visit to Gorseinon would fill a column of the "Pioneer" and I am at yom service. Mr Editor, with a column worth typ- ing. The papers ahead include:—May 23, "Sanctitv of the Home," Comrade W. J. Tho- mas; June 6, Majraini," W. H. Davies; June 13 "Socialism and Christianity," Bill Davies. Our picnic is forging ahead, and I am desirous of cramming ten brakes this season. If you don't see me about-, give your names to Dd. Lewis. Herbert Rees, Emrys Borthwick or Elea- zer Williams. Local Shop Assistaiits, v I The shop assistants met the "other side,, in serious manner. The bone of contention was the Whitsun Tuesday holiday. The Assistants wanted Monday and Tuesday, but the idea was lost. Most of the assistants belong else- where some of the shops are run by father, mother, son, etc., therefore they can get off for the week if they desire it. Now I want to appeal to the public of Gorseinon to stand in support of the assistants. They need a holi- day, and to get this make vour purchases on the Saturday; then we shall be able to show the employing shopkeeper that he shouM close for Whit-Tuesday. We of the "black squad" have recognised the benefits of the Brotherhood of Man. The shop assistants must do the same. Come into the midst of your fellow workers, and you will get their sympathy. The worker is black, hut his heart's all right. Keep your card clear, and I say you will get your holiday. I intend moving a i-esoi liifion. at next Sunday night's meeting at the Palace, that we stand by the assistants. By the way, Dick Wall- head will be at the Palace next Sunday at 7.30. Shopping is women's work. Now, give your dealer a nlaiw hint as to how to treat his employees re Whit Tuesday. Cae Duke Workers. I I notice you have erected a small portable hall-at Loughor for committee meetings, also to pay your Trade Union coppers. After this is done, some of you cycl e to Llangennech, Bynea, Gowerton, etc., and the hall is vacant until you turn up to pay once more. Why not give the loan of it to the Loughor I.L.P? Do you disagree with the I. L. Peer? If so, should this be sufficient for you to compel them to utilise a comrade's parlour week after week? Workers, get rid of this jealousy; this damnable apathy that lies within you. Did you ever meet an I L.Peer in Loughor whose cha- laeter is putrid? No, workers; they are the very men who are sober, intelligent; the men who stand by you when the employer tackles you. I implore you colliers of Cae Duke, to open the door of this hall, bid the I.L.P. to enter this being done, yours is the success; yous is the moral, social and spiritual blessing. Again I say, open the door! Amen! I^%plefed see Private W. J. Edwards, Welsh Fusiliers, home from the front He seamed fairly good. May the time come quick- ly when all the boys shall march homef, never to return to war anyhow! Sylvia Pankhurst's Meeting. I When I gave my report of the Rev Herbert Dunnico's meeting a month ago, yo-u will re- member my praise of such an excellent meet- ing. Well, the meeting last Sunday "knock- ed it into a cocked hat; it was overcrowded The folks who were unable to gain admission missed a treat. Miss Pankhurst, who had ad- dressed a meeting in the afternoon at Llan- elly, was in excellent form. Parts of her address regarding the sordidness of some soldiers' wives and mothers were astonishing, and drew from the audience a- hundred Ciries of "Shame I Shame!" D. R. Gran-fell, who presided, ap- pealed for liberty of free speech; if a person disagreed with Miss Pankhurst, there would he an opportunity to put questions at the close of heir address. And, my word! questions poured in. and were answered satisfactorily; in fact, so well that the whole audience applauded each ieply, In her remarks, Miss Pankhurst said that no person would stop her free speech, as long as sho had a tongue. Whether, or not it was going to be against the Defence ol the Realm Act, she was going to preach her message. When she viewed the sordid condi- tions of lite, and the failure of the Labour tions of Me, its apathy to so many things it Party through its apathy to so many things, it was time someone spoke out. The facts put forward by Miss Pankhurst were astounding. She told the story of the Yiddisher boy who was shot for leaving a trench; a soldier that was upon crutches who had a wife and seven children receiving the amount ef 10/9 per week, while the intematoinal swindlers are reaping huge fortunes. They had reaped in previous wars, but in the present war the mo- ney made by these people was enormous. The next war would be with China, she believed. T'he speaker stated that there was agitation against the importation of sweated goods from Germany, Why ? They were nothing compared with the sweated goods, imported from Japan, the latter representing ofttimes British interests. Miss Pankhurst then pointed out her idea of how this war could come to an end. She be- lieved that Germany—yes, every nation in- volved--desii-c,d peace. If onlv the workers ar- oused from their slumber, we should have peace immediately. If those people on top made war, and were not desirous for it to end, then it was our duty to say to them We de- mand peace." After this had been done, the toilers of all nations should have a voice sim- ilar to the Americans whether war should be waged or not. With passion she asked the audience did they know anything about the Mo- rocco business, or Poland? "Y ou talk of the neutrality of Belgium! You talk of Prussian- ism What have they done with David Kirk- wood and his comrades, and other ideal men and women? It is for you and I to fight every day, that the liberty which our forefa- thers fought and died for is retained; it is not too late. Awake! I say Awake!" A vote of thanks to Miss Sylvia Pankhurst was carried amidst shouts of applause. I may state that the following resolution was put forward — That this meeting views very seriously the rapId growth of militarism m this country, and particularly deplores and protests ag- ainst the recent extremely irresponsible and arrogant expressions of it in the cases of Mr Sheehy-Skeffington and his non-combatant pacifist comrades in Ireland. It also calls upon the Government to at least immediately transfer all Conscientious Objectors suffering punishment under military authority for treatment under civil authority, and to se- cure that conscience cases shall hitherto be treated within the civil realm. It further expresses its desire for the best possible Peace at the earliest possible mom- ent, for the sake of the country's best and most honourable traditions; and the preven- tion of the utter collapse of the world's civilisation. This resolution was carried unanimously, not one hand up against. I was very pleased to see one Minister of the Gospel thnre-the Rev. D. Jones, Vicar of Gorseinon. I should report a little more this week, but, believe me, readers. I feel a little out of sorts. Anyhow, I shall be in the pink by Saturdav. Have you got a pal for the "Pioneer"? Do say "Yes." Look out next week "Jones, Seion, and what I think of him"; also "Our Dick." CHUM. I
GUY ALDRED GIVEN TWO MONTHS. I Guy Aldred (the Editor of the Spur ") has been sentenced by District Oourt-Martial at I Salisbury to two months for disobeying orders.
The Electric Theatre. I If there is one place cooler than another these hot days it is the cinema, and as I sat in the Electric this week I' compared it with the idealistic holiday on the Thames some short two years back now, and I had to confess that it was more than a town counterpart for a shallow punt and shady willows. It is the most effective way of cooling off I know, and I have tried many from the great illusion of ice cream to fizzy drinks with fancy names and fancier prices. But the theatre must be the right one. It is not that the darkened air and electric fans seem to be coooler. the attention must be heJd by really good pictures. That is why I go to the Electric; for the Electric al- ways have the pictures that are being talked about in the big centres; and snapped up at fancy prices by the renters. There is an air of distinction about the programmes at the El- ectric this week that is surprising in view of the weather and season, though quite in keep- ing with the traditions of the house. Mr Taylor, who is temporarily filling the manage- ment, says it is because the Electric are doing a little more than usual so as to recoup pat- rons for the eyltria price due to the tax, and I am sure tnat that is the correct explana- tion. "Royal Love," the live-reel attraction from Monday to Wednesday, was one of the best film stories that I have seen. The book was natural, yet enthralling, the acting perfect and convincing, and the photography even better than we have come to expect even from, Elec- tric films. Better even than that, however, was the opening chapters of the sensational new serial that is to run for the next 29 weeks' beginnings, "The Diamond from the Sky, a story of an earldom, a family feud, changed babies and the Diamond from the Sky-a jewel to make thieves. Everyone will admit that even in this brief statement there are all the elements that make for thrills, and they have been perfectly worked out and played with consummate skill. The caste includes Mary Pickford's sister: in the principal part The Dia- mond should catch on—and if I don't win the JSSOO ottered I trust some of my readers will. On Thursday the main attraction was an unusually enjoyable programme was a wonderful picture version of Justus Miles Ferman's cele- brated novel "The Garden of Lies." To one who has read the remarkable book the picture is doubly interesting, but even without a, knowledge of the story the picture is one of infinite charm. It grips hold of the emotions tight and runs away with the beholder to a "Wonderland of romance. Indeed, a friend with me, who had not read the book, claimed to have got more enjoyment out of it than I be- cause I knew the denouement, and he had to watch it develop. Anyway, we were both at one in our admiration of one of the best pic- tures ever screened. All the week we have had the pleasure of seeing Montana Joe on the platform lecturing in a pleasing strain the while his photograph was careering on "Snow- ball" around the Wild West: pursued by Red- skins, and fighting Nature in her many wild moods. It was novel, and as entertaing as it was novel. Next Monday we are to have that gseat attraction—the picture version of Sir Arthur Pinero's celebrated drama, "The Second Mrs. Tanqueray." It is a great play beautifully done, and with a caste including Sir George Alexander and Miss Hilda Moore there should be crowded houses.. Sir Geoirge, who makes his first film appearance here, promises to eclipse all that he has done on the boards as a film favourite. There will be the second chapter of "The Diamond from the Sky"; and Chaplin's Yankee rivals—Burns and Stoll—make a new funny appearance. On Thursday next the sensational story, "A Fighting Chance," is booked, and "The Girl from Lost Island/' a wonderful Pathe serial, is to be opened. Altogether the week should be notable in local cinema history. PLAYGOER.

Navvy Pat's Views. I "There's more than wan puzzle to he con- sidered to-night," said Pat, "an' -the first ov them is war." But at that moment Sandy bustled in armed with slate and pencil, de- manding further explanations of Pat's previous calculations. Sit ye down, Sandy since the Guvernment has cut short our hours here, I haven't got time to drive stiff figgers into dull heads when there's other stiff propositions needin' attention."

"But I can't see "There ye are, wooden-head; that's the best reason ye shud go to yer leaders, for birds ov a feather flock together, an' if ye bring yer heads to- gether forcibly over the subject, there'll be an awful rattle aiven if there's no results." But, fairplay, Pat; ye just gie us a glimpse o' yer figgers on the wall, an' then the duster wipes 'em oot; if ye won't take trouble to explain things after, why don't ye put yer figgers in a book so as we can carry them wi' us, an' work them oot at our laisure?" us, I'm doin' it, me bhoy. an' it'll soon be in the hands ov the Pioneer to be printed. Mebbee. ve've noticed the contributions that's com in' to me ivry week in reply to the appeal by Mr .Fitzgibbon in the 'Pioneer,' an' by the Editor, too.
