GLIMNCIROSS, It is with feelings of profound sorrow that we refer to the death of Mr William James Glenoross (of the firm of Messrs W.

Glen- gross, High Street, which sad event f took place on Sunday morning at his t residence, Brynderwen, High Street, at the comparatively early age of 38 years. The suddenness of the event l will be realised when it is stated that the deceased was in business, as usual, as recent as Saturday, the 16th I inst. The late Mr Glencross was well-known, and held in the highest I respect, and the news of his demise has been received with muoh regret by a large circle of friends.

The event has been organised by I the Aberbargoed Subsidiary Relief Committee, whose noble efforts in re- lieving distress in the district since the outbreak of war, are worthy of every praise and encouragement. We understand that a numerous entry list has been received by the Secretaries and some keen competitions are an- ticipated, especially in the BOIOS, male voice and children's choirs competi- tions. Much interest is also being taken in the meeting of those noted rivals, the celebrated New Tredegar United Choir and the Deri United Choir, who with other contestants will figure in the chief choral compe- I tition, the test piece being the ohoras, Then round about the Starry Throne-" 4
I CAERPHILLY AND GELL1- OAER LIBERALS. SELECTION OF CANDIDATE. A meeting of the Liberal Asroci- ations of the Caerphilly and Gelligaer Division was held at Ystradmynaoh on Friday evening, Alderman Joseph Howells, J.P., Caerphilly, in the chair. The meeting bad been con- vened for the purpose of definitely selecting a Coalition candidate to oppose Mr Alfred Onions, J.P., Tre- ¡ degar, the Labour nominee. The Association had previously considered the question and from a large number of nominations the list was reduced to three, viz., Rev. D. Leyshon Evans, Bargoed Councillor E. Richards, Ystradmynach (the vice- president of the Association); and Alderman J. E. Evans, now of New. port and formerly of Caerphilly but this went awry when it was intimated the finally selected candidate would have to bear his own expenses. Con- sequently, the three candidates with. drew. Subsequent events brought the Coalition Seheme, and a further list was drafted which comprised Messrs W. R. Edmunds, Merthyr; R. E. Chalk, Porth J. E. Evans, J.P., Newport; Artemus Jones, London Arthur A. Thomas, London; Hopkin Morgan, Pontypridd and A. T. James, barrister. At the meeting, Mr Goshen Evans, Bargoed, the secretary, read letters from each of these gentlemen. Mr ITopkin Morgan find Mr A. T. James: withdrew from the nomination, bat each of the others intimated their readiness, if elected, to abide by the Coalition programme as outlined by the Prime Minister and Mr Bonar Law. The delegate from Taffa Well aflked permission that the name of Mr John Williams, a former chairman of the Caerphilly Urban Council, should be added to the list, and pledging on Mr Williams' behalf, his adhesion to the Coalition programme. This re- quest the meeting assented to. The local Conservative Association intim- ated their willingness to support the nominee of the meeting, providing that such candidate could give the Association guarantees upon some poiuts which would be submitted to him after the selection. Mr W. C. Parrish, Bargoed, drew attention to a report in Thursday's Cardiff papers that Mr Alfred Onions had received the blessings of the Prime Minister upon his candidature as the Coalitionist. This, said Mr Parrish, should certainly be cleared up definitely, as Mr Onions had upon his platform men of certainpolitioal views which they as Liberals could not favour. The Prime Minister should be informed said Mr Parrish, that there were special local reasons why Mr Onions should be opposed" (cheers). The Chairman agreed and said that if the report was correct then the authorities were desiring to disfran- chise that division which was contrary to the treatment meted out to other constituencies. Balloting was then proceeded with, the candidates being Meosrt3 Edmnnds, Merthyr J. E. Evans, J P., Newport; R. E. Chalk, Porth Artimas Jones, London Arthur A. Thomas, London aod John Williams, Taffs Well. The three last named were knocked out on the first round and in the second round Alderman J. E. Evans was elected by 98 votes and Mr W. R. Edmunds 48. Mr W. R. Beddoe moved and Mr Parrish seconded that Alderman Evans be adopted. This was carried unanimously. In the course of the proceedings, reference was made to the presence on the platform of Mr Onions of ad- vocates of particular views and whose polioy could not for one moment be countenanced by the Liberal section, it was therefore imperative that a contest should take place. Conn. E. Richards, J.P., who was one time a candidate for nomination, but withdrew, delivered an inspiring I and rousing speech in support of Aid. Evans.
I BARGOED PRISONER OF WIR BETURNS. Private. W. J.Williams, of the 17th Welsh, is the first prisoner of war to return to Bargoed under the terms of the Armistice. He was captured at Bourlon in November, 1917, and after six days of proper starvation' he and others reached Munster, Westphalia. They were taken in horse wagons -40 men in each. The conditions were horrible, and many of the men, who suffered from dysentery and other diseases, died en route. On the day following the signing of the armistioe a party of about 150 British prisoners at Brussels were told they were to be taken to the British lines by the 26th Division of the Ger- man Army They were marched about two kilometres and then left to go forward on their own without guides or rations. This was a terrible march, in which many of the men died from exhaustion and exposure. Those who reached the Allied lines after a tramp of two days were in a wretched state. Private Williams attributes his preservation to the kindness of some Belgians, who took him in overnight and extended to him a warm and generous hospitality. ■■ *»»' ■
