LLAMWRTYD WELLS. I It is high time that the Llanwrtyd Ur- ban District Council took a greater inter- est in the welfare of the district, es- pecially now that the Wells i6 such a popular health resort. The Doicoed grounds could be developed to make it -sore attractive for visitors. The (?uncil does not seem to take any interest in de- "'?14E)Ping the town, and the rates being about 9s. in the X, there ought to be a decent balance standing to their credit, which should be utilised for developments -ind improvements. Concerts have been held during the week by the vi6itors recuperating at this popular health resort. One was in aid of Dr. Barnado's Homes, when Mr. W. H. Jones (Swansea) rendered several recita- tions. Over £ 1 was realised.

"WHERE ARE WE?" ANOTHER CONTRIBUTION TO THE CONTROVERSY To th? Editor. Si-1 have read with much interest the controversy in your pages between Mr. LI. Williams, M.P., and "Geo- an." The challenge which Mr. Williams threw out is very ea6 to answer by asking-him a pointed question. If Mr. Williams was as whole-hearted as the Prime Minister to obtain a "real peace" based on victory (by which is meant, I take it, a military victory), why did he oppose Conscription? as it is (and was) very evident that we woul<J never have obtained the neceeeary num- her of men to enforce that "real peace" by voluntaryism alone. Mr. Williams asks if Mr. Lloyd George is still the same man; "the opponent and denouncer of militarism; the man who stood up against the mob during the Boer War for the right of conscience." In reply I would like to say that in my opinion, and in that of the majority of our fellow countrymen, he if-, be- cause his attitude to-day is entirely con- sistent with the attitude he took up during the Boer War. Rightly or wiongly (we have no need to discuss this question now). Mr. Lloyd George held the view that the Boers were an oppressed people, and he defen- ded them for all he was worth, at grave personal risk to hilllEdf. upon some occasions. Is there anything differ- ent in his attitude of to-day ? Is not defending the rights of the weak against the strong; and tyrannical even (at; in his opinion) he did at that time There are times and occasions when brute force must be met aaicl overcome with brute force, by even the most peacably- minded of men and yet not sacrifice by one jot or tittle their love oi peace. A iliad dog cannot be overcome with bou- quets or with flights of flowery eloquence. It must be put out of the way of doing damage as speedily as possible in as drastic a manner as the situation needs. In a like manner militarism such as per. meated Germany from top to botto- ( uid which even Mr. LI. Williams must admit is a constant danger and menace to the world) must be crushed. This cannot ba done with kid gloves or in the council chamber, but with stern and ruthless warfaze (the only "method that the Ger- man can uilderstand). which has for its ends not the destruction of Germany, but the destruction of the idea that by war alone can Germany be prosperous and powerful. Mr. Lloyd George thoroughly realises tiii-. nnd there is absolutely nothing in- I consistent in his attitude at the present time compared with any previous time in his ? Different circumstances require dit- ferent treatment, that is all. Mr. LI. Williams, like many othei,? in hese days, seems to have tha ??rthcHn.! Press on the brain. How the latf Phil if alive to-day, would, have de- lighted to caricature these men in another of those popular series, On the I brain." It is quite ridiculous to see men of world-wide reputation imputing almost all the ills we suffer from to the North- •'ifl'e Press. Mr. Williams in his last letter tOe you wrilc.s,thus:- The Northcliffe Press in its turn seems to be at once the organ and the inspirer of Mr. Lloyd George. If that is so, then hats off to the North- cliffe Press, as it has inspired the one man in the whole country who has grap- pled successfully with the situation; who ,has sustained and strengthened his fellow countrymen during dreadful days of trial and despondency b- his undaunted op- timism until now. The dawn of the glori- o us day of -victory is in sight, If. as Mr. Williams suggests, the North- cliffe Press is responsible for this, then the thanks of the nation are due to it and not disparagement and abuse. But the majority of our fellow country"a- i?en, especially we Welshmen, have a greater faith in Lloyd George than to be- lieve that he is dependent upon founts of inspiration otljer than his own splendid brain, whifch has brought him to the very apex of fame. and I contend that Mr. Wil- liams could not have hit him a worse blow than to suggest that he is the puppet of any particular section of the Press. I quite agree with you, eir, when you say that you believe that Mr. Lloyd George is still the Lloyd George Wt* knew," and I also am firmly of the opin- ion that he has no thought for any of the trivial things which rent and tore the vitals of national unity in pre-war di, but is simply old with the one idea of bringing the war to a speedy and tri- umphant conclusion by an overwhelming victory over Germany. I am afraid that in the light of hi; speeches and actions the same cannot be said of Mr. LI. Williams. M.P.—Yours etc., Pro Patria." I

SIR S. T. EVANS | MANY TRIBUTES SWANSEA EXPRESSION OF SORROW Mr. Justiec- Darling, in announcing the death of Sir Samuel* Evans, said that; during the war judges of the High Court1 had had to undertake much additional labour, and Sir Samuel had had much to do that was extra to his ordinary duties, j Everyone would agree that at the Prize Court he had dons his work with remark- able ability, and had delivered judgments which would become quite historic. His lordship could only express regret that ao eminent a j udge should have been called away at this moment. Sir Richard Muir added that he had been closely associated with Sir Samuel from the time he went to the Bar, in- cluding the period he was a Law Officer. Sir Samuel had established a name which would go down to history coupled with that of Lord Stowell, another great master of prize law a century ago. PRESS TRIBUTES. The Times says: Perhaps b-is desire for further advancement was one motive for his commendable zeal. But for his accept nee of the Presidency, he might, as things turned out, have had either the Chief Justiceship or the Woolsack; and hie admirers never lost sight of the pfts sibility that one of these great prizes might fall into his lap. The "Daily Telegraph": Sir Samuel proved a worthy successor of Lord Stowell, who presided over the Prize Court during the Napoleonic wars, and laid the foundations of the science of prize law, and Dr. Lushington during the Cri- mean War. His decisions were impartial and broadminded, setting' justice above legal pedantry, and applying the general principles recognised by all nations to the changing conditions of modern naval war- fare. They stood the test of the scrutiny of the appellate tribunals and remain as a tasting memorial of a judge whose death is a heavy loss to the English Bench. LOCAL1 TRIBUTE. At the Swansea. Police Court, on Satur- day, the Chairman (Mr. A. H. Thomas), referring to Sir S. T. Evans, aaid that his death was an early and untimely one. It was not only a loss to the Principality but to the whole British Empire. Sir S. T. Evans had been a great judge, and was a great national asset. He was the type of Welshman of whom everyone was proud. They (the Bench) felt his death keenly. Mr. J. H. Rosser, Mr. Jones, and Supt. Roberts (on behalf of the Police; also asso- ciated themselves with the remarks of Mr. Thomas.
ABERAVON DIVISION. Meetings in the New Constituency. Porthcawl is now included in the; A beravon Parliamentary Division, &nd the Liberals of the town and district, having been called together by the old secretary, Councillor D. J. Rees, J.P., a meeting wa6 held on Thursday evening, Councillor Thomas Jajnes, J.P., being voted to the chair. The old ossociation was duly dissolved, the liabilities of the treasurer, Mr. Clias. Clement, being discharged, and it was unanimously resolved to «:-e»?ablish an association for Porthcawl, tLe members to elect officers at nexc meeting. It was re- solved to send 20 delegates to the general meeting to be held at A beravon at an early date. The following were appointed to the Executive of the 300:—Messrs. Grindley Morgan, H. B. Comley, Thos. James, J.P.. and D. J. Rhys, J.P. It was resolved to advertise the date of the next meeting, and to invite the ladies of the town. The question of the Liberal candidate was not considered, this matter being left for the central meeting. There_is a g-en- pral feeling among the Liberals of the town, however, that the seat should be contested in their interest. It was stated by one present at the nesting that Messrs. Percy Jacob and S. had definitely refused to contest the seat in the Unionist interest. ABERAVON LABOUR PARTY AND THE BALLOT.. At Grove-place Vestry, Aberavon, on .Friday evening, although the miners had previously decided not to attend the party conference '1 Saturday, Messrs. John Thomas, W. R. John, Meth Jonaa, and others, for the sake of unity, advocated that they should be represented, so that none should be able to say that Mr. Wm. Jenkins's <-upporters had hindered the holding d the ballot. was decided to recommend all dele- < z to attend and to insist that a ballot ..5ilould be held, instead of wasting time upon personalities.
