Brynamman Presentation. I COLLIERY CLERK HONOURED. I A most happy event was held at the Farmers' Arms Hotel, Brynamman, on Satur- day evening last, when Mr. Archie Williams, Garnant, who has discharged the duties cf clerk and bank foreman at the Amman Col- liery, Brynamman, for the last twelve years, was made the recipient of an excellent address and a purse of gold by the employers and employees on his departure to take up similar duties at home, viz., Raven Colliery, Gar- nant. The gifts were handed over by Mr. Rd. James, Brynffynnon, Brynamman, who spoke in eulogistic strains of the stering quaities of Mr. Williams, and the great loss his leaving meant to them all. During his tenure of office at the Amman Colliery he had won general esteem, being a very kind, impartial and dutiful official, always ready to do his utmost for all concerned. Whenever a misunder- standing or dispute arose, Mr. Williams would soon put matters right. He had known him, continued the speaker, for a great many years, but he had nothing but expressions of respect an4 appreciation to voice as to his characteristics. He hoped that he would con- tinue to win the esteem of his fellow-workmen at the Raven. Mr. Williams briefly and suitably acknow- ledged the valuable gifts and kind remarks of Mr. James. Mr. Edwin Isaac, the secretary of the movement, and checkweigher at the colliery concerned, spoke in a similar strain to the Chairman, and expressed his real sorrow and regret that Mr. Williams was leaving. Mr. Daniel Thomas, Tymawr, Gwaun-cae- gurwen, also addressed the meeting, and en- dorsed the sentiments of the previous speakers. Mr. S. Williams, A.R.A.M., A.V.C.M., presided at the pianoforte, and gave a selec- tion to- open proceedings. Songs were given by Messrs. Freddie Morgan and David Stephens, F.T.S.C., Cwmllynfell, whef gave a clever imitation of the bee. Mr. Brinley Williams indulged in a little mimicry, which was greatly enjoyed, and along with Tom Wyn Williams sang penillion, which were loudly encored. Mr. Steve Jones gave a splendid pianoforte solo. The able bard and litterateur, Mr. Rhys Jones (Cwerydd), gave a splendid speech, and finished off with a fine string of penillion composed for the occasion (which appear below). Mr. Leyshon Thomas also gave a song in good style, Mr. Thomas Morgan, M.E., manager of the colliery, who was unable to attend, was represented by his son, Mr. J. Lloyd Morgan. The president of the evening was Mr. Dan T. Hughes, who at the outset dealt with the purport of the meeting and the worthy guest of the assembly. He was also treasurer of the movement. The proceedings were brought to a close with the singing of Hen Wlad fy Nhadau." Following are the verses composed and read by Cwerydd:— GWOBRWYO CAREDIGRWYDD. I Gwaith hawdd i ddyn yw llunio can Pan gaffo destyn diddan, Ac awen fyw sy'n mynd ar dan Uwchben rhyw wrthrych eirian; A llawer bardd ddifyra'i hun Uwch ceinion teg y cread, A dirfawr swyn yw moli dyn Sy' n gloywi ei gymeriad. Bid farvf-r hwn a fynno glod," Fynega-hen ddiareb; Teilyngach help gaiff gwr o nod Trwy'i ganmol yn ei wyneb. Faint gwell yw dyn tan glo y bedd 0 gael ei werthfawrogi? I Rhoi parch i ddyfi tra'n iach ei wedd Yw'r ffordd i'w wir sirioli. Mae gweithwyr Pencraig heno'n 'nghyd, A pharch trwy'u bronnau'n fflamio At wr lesola'i gylch a'i fyd, A Chymro cywir drwyddo. Aruchel yw yn serch y wlad, Mae pawb yn hoff o Archie; Ei galon sydd heb rith o frad, 0 A'i fotto yw I fyny." Un hawddgar ydyw wrth ei waith, A manwl ei gyfrifon Tra'n gwneud ei orchwyl flwyddi maith, Uniondeb lywiai'i galon. j Gwasanaeth roes am dymor hir Yn ffyddlon iawn i'r Cwmni, A dangos wnaeth hynawsedd pur I flacks yr Amman Valley. Mae'n cadw'i hun fel Cymro glan, Heb falchder yn ei rodiad Mae ï barch i bawb yn ddiwahan Yn addurn i'w gymeriad. Wrth law y Cwmni oedd o hyd, A gwas i'r cyfranddalwyr I Er hynny, parod oedd bob pryd I gynorthwyo' r gweithwyr. El garedigrwydd lawer pryd Hwylusodd. waith y Pwyllgor; Offrymai ef a llawen fryd Bob help a fedrai hebgor. Cyflawnai ef drwy'1 natur bles Ein cais mewn cydgord iach v Ac weithian cofio'i werth a'i les Mae gwyr y Bwli Bach. I Fan hyn yn lion yn hwyr y dydd Cyflwynwn wallet ;ddo A'r aur geir ynddi' arv.-y JJ sydd 0 serch ein calon ato. Wrth fynd on plith i Swyddfa'r Inn Ac arall gylch i weithio, Dymunwn iddo fywyd gwyn, A nawdd y Nefoedd drosto.
