A little section of the great I audience which filled the building was evidently out, to interrupt speakers as ranch as possible, hut they got a great de»l more than they bargained for. I loll'IGrg-an J.

He believed that, i bbek though the clouds had been, there wa& a silver lining now appearing, and if we all pulled together it would not bo long before Britain and her Allies secured the glorious victory for which they wero striving. He appealed to those present to remember that i hey were meeting in a sacred building. Neither he nor tho other epeakers were adverse t( pro- per questions, but they must be seemly and asked from a proper spirit- Mr. T. J. Williams, M.P.. had a very | hearty reception. He spoke lucidly about the origin of the war, and traced Us history from the momentous August of 1911 to the present day. in Parliament, ho pointed out, with the exception of some 20 members, all sections were united in support of our war policy. Mr. Williams was gaing en to refer to the attitude of Mr. Philip Snowden, when from the I.L.P. section cheers broke out. Wait a minute, aid Mr. Williams This man has been asked to resign by his constitute ate. Mr. Williams dealt effectively with the contentions of the Pacifists, and urged that unless we secured, a decisive victory, ali that Britain and her Allies fought for would be once again in jeopardy. Mr. C. B. Stanton,. M.l\, alco spoke. The member for Merthyr mack-, a very roueing epeceh, and proved himself quite equal to a number of interruptions, some of which had referred to his action in coal negotiations in South Wales. One in- terruptor was very persistent, making de- ilnito accusations with regard to certain transactions. When asked to substan- tiate theee, however he considerably modified his words; and it is a tribute to Mr. Stanton's powers and the tactful coil- duct or the chairman that in the end Le seconded the vote of thanks, which was accorded to the speakers. Mr. Stanton claimed that citizenship en- tailed fullest responsibility of maintain- ing the rights and honour of the State; and .?aid that in the future, the country would roali&e that the defence of honour and country was or.o of the greatest res- ponsibilities of its citizens.

I I CURES STOMACH TROUBLE I OR MONEY BACK. INSTANT RELIEF GUARANTEED, I Recently a well-known authority on the I treatment of stomach- troubles, who has claimed that practically all stomach trouble if; due to aciVlity, decided te put t 17,verv 6uf i ercr his frit ory to tho test. Every sufferer from stomach trouble was told to taka, half a teaspoonful of pure bisurated mag- nesia in a little water immediately after eating or whenever pain was felt. The test completely vindicated his theory, for immediate relief was indicated in each of the first hundred reports received, show- ing conclusively that the trouble had been due to stomac h ae.vl which, as is well known by all physicians, is instantly neutralised by bisurated magnesia. Since making known this test, the well-known chemists who have specialised in prepar- ing pure bisurated magnesia exclusively for stomach use have arranged to place in every package ,of genuine bisurated magnesia a binding guarantee contract of satisfaction or money back—proof positive of their belief that nearly every so-called dyspeptic is really suffering from acidity —and their confidence that genuine bisurated inagnt sia will instantly neutralise stomach acvl stop food ier- mentatiton, and cure all stomach troubles caused thereby. Always 'look for the ii,t;tie Bisurated on the label and the guarantee contract, inside the package.

SWANSEA HURAL COUNCIL. Tbo Food Control Committee of the Swansea Rural District Council was visited on Thursday by a deputation of wholesale potato dealers on iho subject of extra charges to be allowed for the coat of delivery of potatoes to outlying districts. They suggested 10s. per ton, but that was done on the assumption that the District Council area extended to Ystalvfera and Ystradgynlais, where- as it ends at Clydach. • The Clerk asketi whether or not the flat rate of 5s. decided upon by the Swan- sea Food Control Committee was not as- sumed to include outside haulage. In the end, the deputation promised to reconsider, and bring up revised sugges- tions. Prices of coal were fixed as follows 1st quality, £ 1 18s. (jel. per ton; 2nd iluiilit,y, kl 16s. 6d.

PDE!iER 0 pr 1' ME?ER ?8 PE?E.' .——— ￼ i THE WAR imi GO ON. At a gmit meeting held in the Royal Albert Hall OIl Monday afternoon, the t Chancellor of the Exchequer launched a new campaign to promote economy and investment in I the National War Bonds. Important I speeches were made by both Ministers on the war situation. The war must end in a lasting peace. j I have scanned the horizon anxiously, but! Ican see no terms in eight which would lead to an enduring peace. At present: onli an armed truce would be possible. It is essential to dethrone brute force for ever to save our children from horrors and terrors beyond the most vivid im- agination. Our pre-eminent war aim is the de- struction of a false ide&l. The real enemy j is the war spirit enshrined in Potsdam, and there will be no peace or liberty for the world till that shrine is shattered. Tinio is on our side. America is pre- paring, aId the submarine losses are growing less. Our monthly loss in ton- liage is little over one-third of the April total, and the Germans have lost in 10. months more thfcii twice as many sub-1 marines as in the whole of 191G. Even should the Prussian military machine prevail—and it will not—the free nations whose conscience has been re- j voltod by German barbarities can reduce her to desolation and impotence by econo- ulic means. To will through we must last out and hold together. Beware of those who try to sow dissension. The enemy is organ- ising a great offensive behind the lines. Look out for Boioism in every form. Personal and sectional differences must, be forgotten or postponed. There must be only ono .party—the State. The Allies are working in the greatest harmony and there is no shadow of dis- union among t Hcm, We are on the eve of one of the most important conferences that the Allied Governments have ever held. The de- i S cisions taken will affect the whole course of the war, and may very well determine its ultimate issue. belwec-n naiiont;, The war is a strngple bebn>on nations, and haul victory %iii depend as murh on tho?a at home as on the fighting men. Expenditure must he more cut down. The new War Bonds will, it is hoped, j lead to a steady and persistent flow of money lent L, the State without the i financial dislocation inseparable from a great loan. Everything depends on British credit. The burden will be heavy, but, if the war ends as we mean it to end, the nation will be able to bear it. No Gov- eminent would discriminate against wealth lent to the State in favour of wealth not used to help it in its need, i During the last month our airnieri dropped, S,000 bombs behind the German line,7, while the Germans dropped 1,000 behind ours. We are net going to luse our supremacy in Flanders, but, having been reluct- antly forced into a kind of warfare that we detest, we will repay the enemy in full measure, pressed down and running over. I see no road to ppace except thremgh victory. Greet and enormous demands will come upon us, and we must understand and trust each other. Our soldiers are doing well, but they alono will not win the war. The battle front is not only abroad, but here at home. This war is only the beginning of great events; and the people are now getting the strength, the nerve, and the soul which will enable them to face the bsk-s the future The total number of applications for X?i?na] War Bonds r-?ivfd bT or r.oti- f?d to t'J?

STOLEN COAL. I George Wilkes was at the Swansea Police Court on Tuesday charged with being the parent of two lads prosecuted for stealing coal from the Rhondda and a Bay Railway. The Chairman asked the father if he was the recei ver of the stolen coal. If so, they would now consider the question 01 sending him to prison. Wilkes denied that he was the receiver of the coal. but said he knew who did so. Accordingly, oil the application of Supt. Roberts, the case was adjourned for a fort- night for inquiries.
WELSH DIVORCE CASE. I Mr. Justice Hill, in the Divorce Court on Friday, granted a decree nisi, with custody of two children, to Mr. Cyvil Froodvale Davies, land agent, of Hafdre, Llanwrtyd. Wells, for the dissolution of his marriage with Elvira Hilda Lloyd Davies,. whom he married on April 3, 1902, at Llandyssul. Mr.,Cotes Preody appeared for the petitioner (instructed by Messrs. Burgess Cos-ens and Co., London). Counsel stated that tho marriage was fairly happy until the November after the war broke out, whell respondent's brother came back from South Africa to enlist, and brought. with him a man named Downes, who was cited as co-respondent. Petitioner told the court that when Downes was invalided home from the front Airs. Davies suggested to him that he should invite Downes to come to stay with them to recuperate. Downes came on three occasions, and stayed a month or -six weeks altogether. He had no suspicion of his .wife at the time. In July, 1915, she went to London, and told him on her return that she had met Downes. In January, 1910..she ivent to London again, and was six weeks away. From London she wrote him that shy never meant to return to him. She was, she said, going to take up with Downes. Petitioner went at once to London, and persuaded his wife to return to him. Thev lived in the same house after that. Finally she left him 011 September 23, 1916, and from Grantham she wrote him that she was expecting a letter announcing that he was going to commence divorce proceed- ings. In that letter she admitted mis- conduct at a London hotel, and evidence was given which upheld that confession.
