"NO ANSWER." EVAN, ROBERTS' MOTHER LOUGHOR BURIAL: REVIVALIST ABSENT. In the presence of a large assembly, com posed chiefly of relatives and persons con- cerned, the funeral took place on Wednes- day afternoon at Moriah Chapel, Loughor, of Mrs. Hannah Roberts, the mother of Mr. Evan Roberts, the evangelist. Th-e cortege left Island House, Loughor, which is within the shadow of Broad Oak Colliery, with Llangiennech stretching in the distance across the Loughor River, at three o'clock. The body was encased in a plain ooffin. The mourners were Mr. Roberts, Miss Roberts, Miss May Roberts, J1æ. Dan Roberts, Air. and Mrs. D. Williams son-in- law and daughter), Mr. and Mrs. D. Rofberts (son and daughter-in-law), ALiaws Sarah, Hawmalh, Katie and Maria Wil- liams (grand -daughters) Messrs. Emlyn Williams and Diiid Henry Roberts (grand- sons), Mr. and Mrs. Rees Hopkins (grand- daughter and husbamd). Amongst the officiating clergy talking part ware the Rev. Howel John Davies, minister of Mlariah, and the Rev. Darvid Jones, Ctry- nant. Our representative, writing before the funeral, states that it was not likely that Mr. Evan Roberts would be present. Mr. Dan Roberts, brother, sent him a wi-re L-wt Friday to the following effect: MOTHER PASSED AWAY PEACE- I FULLY. Funeral Wednesday." Sinoe then they had heaotd notfhmg from him, and it was expected he would attend the funeral. Aa a matter of fact the family are witth- out any knowledge of Mr. Evan Rdberts' movements or intentions. Some weeks ago effotte were renewed to get him home but NO REPLY WHATEVER I was received to the communications sent, nor any reply to the telegram sent last Fn- day. The bearers at the funeral were members of Pisgah Sunday School, which is a branch of Moriah, and amongst the floral tributes were wreaths from Pisgah Sunday School, Mr. Frederick Clarke (an evangelist who iis now in Scotland), friends and family, and a wreath from the Loughor branch of the South Wales Temperance Association. The inscription on the ooffin read: "Died Feb. 6th. aged 65." Over 200 people attended, and the revival- ist (Evan Roberts) did not put in am appear- ance at all.
