1 .11 BARBOFED WOTTLC/VTEN'S I INSTITUTE LICENSE WITH-HELD. I I SEQUEL TO SOERMUS' VISIT. I At the Caerphilly Lower Division Licensing Session on Tuesday, Ald. E. Edwards in the chair, Superin- tendent Williams objected to the renewal of the music and dancing licence for the Workmen's-hall, Bargoed, on the ground that they open the hall Without permission of, the justices on Sundays, allow the Independent Labour Party to hold concerts, &c., that they d6 not pay entertainment tax, and that they let and sub-let the premises to persons other than the licensee, who is not present at the public dances which are held there. An undertaking," he said, was given by the licensees last year that they would not open on Sundays." The Chairman (Mr E. Edwards) You object to the opening on Sun- days ? Superintendent Williams: Yes, sir. They bring &11 kinds of people to this hall, and all kinds of speeches are made there, and the police strongly object to this. Mr, W. Williams, checkweigher, and secretary of tbe Workmen's Institute, admitted that the ball had been opened for concerts during the last few Sundays. Superintendent Williams Do you remember giving an undertaking last year that the premises should not be opened on Sundays ?—Yes, sir. I should like for this case to be adjourned. Super- intendent Williams Have you any- thing to do with the applying for licences ?—I am secretary for the institute. We also keep a manager there. Superintendent Williams: Who gave permission to open the hall a fortnight last Sunday ?— I did; sir.—Did you let it to the I L.P. 1- Yes.—What was there ?-A concert.— And who took part?—Soermus, the Russian violinist. Although you hold the licence you have not the full power of the management of the hail ?—Yes, sir, in a way of speaking. He added that it was a mistake that the Hall had been let on the occasion mentioned, and he was sorry now for what had occurred. Replying to Mr D. M. Yorwertb, one of the magistrates, witness said that the committee of the Institute had also II expressed its regret at what had happened. The application was adjourned to March 11.
CORRESPONDENCE. I BARGOED AND BOLSHEVISM. [ To the Editcr I Sir,—The long letter of 'Councillor Morgan Jones in defence of I.L.Pism. in your last week's issue, where he also describes my letter of the week before as a scribble," failed to ex- plain why I.L.P-ites, who were so f pioasly Pacifists in war time have I turned so rampantly revolutionists in peace time. At the same time he obscures the revolutionary character of the Soermus meeting, saying, the scene" only lasted three minutes," there is nothing about the excitement j outside after the meeting was over, j nor of the probable friction it produced i ji'm ii' mi i iini —— nfitifiiHi m iimiin in « on many a Admittedly Soermus'w speech suggested bediTy?harm on tio'oire', liut taeiiher did Shin well's, Rirkwood's and Gallagher's in Glasgow, as far as can be seen; yet Glasgow's streets ran with blood. A mere incident may excite brute force and ruffianism, when the atmosphere is made and this was what Sbermus was doing- warming the atmosphere. He called himself a Bolshevist. An article in a Cardiff daily paper on Monday last describes Bolshevists thus They make no secret of the fact that their aim is the complete subversion by revolution of the existing order of Society. They aim at destruction not reform, and, unfortunately, their methods are as hideous as those of Prussian Militarism. Their record of crime and violence is worse than that of any recent autocracy. Soermus, being in Britain, walked under cover of a violin. Now, birds of a feather flock together." What else, there- fore, could Soermus's supporters be than Bolshevists, like himself, and thes6 home Bolshevists were pacifists when the war kept fcoing. That Bolshevism and Pacifism should centralise in the same source suggests camouflage somewhere, and tends to confirm war time suspicion as to the conscientiousness of at least some who were 'theri^ Pacifists. fTboo again, the Soermus Meeting was a trespass on the sahctity of th6 Lord's Day, the distinctly spiritual purposes :-at which was subordinated to this Bolshevistic display, and after subordinating a divine institution to such an end, Mr Jones commits the colossal effrontery of castigating th(; H Press and all else for expressing themselves on the general ways of his party To assail earth and heaveh, the human and dhine order, and hope for Carte Blaftcbe in the venture, reveals the Autocrat in the Socialist, they twain are one, and no small autocracy either.—Yours, ate..

RHYMNBY TRADES AND I LABOUR COUNCIL. A meeting of the Rhymney and Abertysswg Trades and Labour Cpuncil was held on Tuesday evening at, jbe, Workmen's Institute,, Mr Edmund Evans presiding over a repre* sentative audience, which icoluded Mr John Morgan, treasurer, and Mr Timothy Davies, seoretary. Arising out of the Minuteis of the previous meeting, with reference to the a&fiation fee to be paid by the Tredegar and District Co-operative Society, which had beeh fixed at 4d. per member, a lengthy discussion ensued.—A communication was re- ceived from Mr Stephen Morgan, on behalf of the. local committee, stating that inasmuch as a large proportion of the members of the Society were already contributing to the funds of the Trades and Labour Council, they were very reluctant to pay double contributions. He therefore suggested ,the following basis of agreement:— (1) That members of the Co-operative Society who are already contributing to the Trades and Labour Council through their industrial organisation, shall pay a. contribution of 2d. per member as Co-operators, and to have half the usual representation; (2) That members who are not already contributing1 to the Trades and Labour 'I Council shall pay the usual fee of 14d. per member, and to receive representation according to Rules. Councillor D. Jambi; pointed out that it would be to the interests of the organisation if they agreed to admit the Co-operators at 2Jd. per member That was the basis in the Afan Valley district, whilst at Tredegar, Ebbw Vale, and Blaina, he understood that the fee charged was 2d. per member. The Chairman pointed out that they would have to rescind the resolution passed at the last meeting before they could entertain Mr Jawea'sWgestion.-Mr JAmes moved a resolution to this effect.—Mr Alfred Conway seconded—Mr Richard Lloyd questioned whether it was a" right course, to pursue in face of the decision of the Bargoed Con- ference that every organisation should pay the full quota, 4d. per member. They were, therefore, bound by that decision, and could not help them- ,selves.-The Chairman said x it was useless for that council, to force the 4d. upon the Cojoperotors if other places are not paying it.—The motion to rescind the previous resolution was carried by 12 to 3, and a 11 flat rate of 2id. per member was agreed to.
