WALES AND THE DRINK PROBLEM. I Last May two deputations from Wales and Monmouthshire waited on the Prime Minister to urge the Government to deal with the drink problem in the Principali- ty. In his reply, Mr. Lloyd George indi- cated that, in his opinion, the most effective method of dealing with the ques- tion was by State purchase, accompanied by local option, and he made an appeal to both deputations to unite their forces in support of that policy. In pursuance of that suggestion it has been decided to conduct a campaign in support of the Prime Minister's policy, to be inaugurated by a national conven- tion. This will he held at the Albert Hall, Llandrindod Wells, on the afternoon of Thursday, Sept. qoth, and will be pre- sided over by Sir Alfred Mond, M.P. A public meeting will be held in the evening. At the convention the details of the cam- paign will be determined. A provisional committee, of which Lord Rhondda is a member, has been appointed.
I "TOOK FRENCH LEAVE." Pte. Penry Thomas, Caersalen-i% terrace, of "L" Company, 3rd Batt. Welsh Regi- ment, was charged at the Police Court on Friday before Mr. Thomas Jones with be- ing absent from his Regiment at Redcar without leave. Det.-Sergt. Tom Davies said that on the 6th inst he visited 12, Richard street, where he saw the defendant in uniform. When asked if he had a pass defendant said "I took French leave about 14 days ago. I started my way back ajid got as far as Craven Arms, but I came back to Llanelly last night." Witness then took him into custody and locked him up. Defendant was remanded to await an escort.
HOSPITALITY FOR AUSTRALIAN SOLDIERS. Many of the Australian soldiers who have been engaged in the fighting in France are now receiving 10 to 14 days furlough, and are visiting England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Whilst a large number of the soldiers have friends and relatives anxious to offer them homes there are numbers of others who find themselves without any definite plans when the time for their furlough arrives. These would greatly appreciate the hos- pitality of British Homes, and most of the men are particularly interested in farming. The Commandant of the Ad- ministrative Headquarters of the Aus- I tralian Imperial Force, 130, Horseferry road, London, S.W., would be glad to hear from any persons who are prepared to receive Australian soldiers as their guests for a part or whole of their fur- lough at farms or other homes in any part of the British Isles. j
Local Wedding I LLANELLY PASTOR MARRIED AT CARNARVON. The marriage took place at Carnarvon on Wednesday, of the Rev. D. J. Davies, B.A., pastor of the Welsh Congregational Church at Capel Als, Llanelly, and Miss Enid Stanley Jones, B.A., elder daughter of the Rev. D. Stanley Jones, pastor of Salem Congregational Church, Carnarvon, at which the wedding was solemnised. The bride's father and the Rev. W. J. Nicholson, Portmadoc, officiated. The bride was given away by her uncle, Mr. Arthur J. Williams, Porth. She wore a dress of silver-grey crepe de chene, with bodice of white shadow lace over shell pink georgette, and silver girdle, and a Pan velvet picture hat to match. Her sister, Miss May Stanley Jones, was the bridesmaid, and the Rev. Brenni Davies, Gowerton, acted as best man. After the wedding breakfast at the bride's home the married couple left for Colwyn Bay for their honeymoon.
I NOT ALL SHIRKERS. To the Editor of the "Star." Sir, Would you kindly grant me a small space in your next issue re the letter of protest from W. J. Jenkins and Lance- Corpl. W. Phillips. I should like to point out to them that some of the strap- ping young fellows they refer to have perhaps been nearer to the Huns than they have themselves. At least I have undergone eight months of the hell they refer to, and that also I am one of the strapping young fellows that they see in Stepney street and Vaughan street. I quite understand their patriotic feeling, and quite agree with them in regards to the dancing classes, but nevertheless, I should like them to remember that not "all" of the strapping young fellows are shirkers. Wishing them the very best of luck and a safe return. I am, etc., Llanelly, Discharged Soldier. Sept. 2nd, 1917.
MULTIPLE SHOP MANAGERS. To the Editor of the "Star." I Sir, I am the wife of the manager of a multiple shop in Llanelly. My husband has had to join the Army four months ago together with several other managers who were called up at the srme tin*. We had to break up our home mid sell our furniture at a great loss. After a, hard struggle for years to get a heme together it is needless to say what I have suffered in consequence of losing it, to say noth- ing of the worry concerning my husband who is to-day, God knows where as I have heard nothing of him for five weeks, and he was then on his way to Mesopo- tamia. Why is it that there are managers of multiple shops still in Llanelly enjoying their freedom and the comforts of home ? If some are forced to go, why not all ? At such a critical time in the history of the country, it is abominable that such partiality should be shown to those who somehow or other Itappen to be in the good graces of the local Tribunal. I should be grateful for an explanation of the a bove. I am, etc., Llanelly, Lover of Fair Play. Sept. 5th, 1917.

Asset to the Nation I MOTHERS AND THEIR CHILDREN. I There was an instructive discussion at the meeting of the Board of Guardians on Thursday, when Relieving Officer Longhurst reported further on the case of a Dafen widow, aged 30 years, who a month ago was granted 16s. relief pend- ing further inquiries. Mr. Jos. Harry: I am sorry I agreed to the arrangement as 16s. a week is quite inadequate. Relieving Officer Longhurst said her son 121, years of age was working. Members questioned the accuracy of the statement, and Mr. Elias Davies ob- served that the officer had had plenty of time to make proper inquiries. Mr. Harry said that children were a greater asset to the nation now than ever and if this woman and her children were only to receive 16s. a week it would mean starvation. He moved that the relief be increased to 25s. per week. The Chairman: That would be rather beyond our limit because one son is sup- posed to be working. Relieving Officer Longhurst: And the woman could do light work. Mr. Harry: But just now you said she was weak. Lady Howard: If she has three children she should be at home to look after them. Mr .Elias Davies: We have a chance now to put into practice what was preached to us during Baby Week by see- ing that this woman is able to feed and care for her children properly, and she cannot do that even with the sum pro- posed by Mr. Harry. It is all very well to observe Baby Week once a year; we must do something more practical if we are to build up the nation. Mr. Long- hurst has had sufficient time now to find out what the boy's earnings are. People from Dafen have told me he is only a learner. The Chairman proposed as an amend- ment that the relief be increased to Li per week until the officer had ascertained what the boy earned. The amendment having been seconded, it was agreed to by a majority.

Captain Falls in Action J a HIS SPLENDID AND PURE ￼ MANHOOD. 1 Capt. Torn Thomas* son of Mr. aikl Mrs John Thomas, Prudential Offices, Cardi- gan, and formerly t4 Llanelly, was one of the victims of the recent fighting in Flanders. He was a B.A. of the Univer- sity College-, Aberystwyth, and joined the Army ih September, 1914, receiving a commission in the Welsh Regiment. He proved himself a highly efficient 'officer, and very popular with his men. In a touching letter of sympathy sent by the chaplain to his parents it is said :H 1 s lamentable and sudden death has cast a gloom over us all, for officers and men loved him for his splendid and pure man- hood. He was always sincere and true in all his dealings and faithful to his duty, however great the danger might be." The deceased has two brothers in the Army.
1 i i "HMO Political Rumours. BOROUGH MEMBER AND MR. I TOWYN JONES. The London correspondent of the "Car- digan and Tivyside Advertiser" writes-- "An interesting crop of rumours is in circulation in regard to the representation of Cardiganshire. Under the new Fran- chise Act, the County will continue to be represented by one member, but the neighbouring County of Carmarthen will have to be content with two members in- stead of the three who now represent it, viz., Mr. Llewelyn Williams, Mr. John Hinds, and Mr. Towyn Jones. Under these circumstances the suggestion is be- ing made in certain political circles that Mr. Yanghan Davies might receive pro- motion to "another place," in order that a seat may be found for one of the dis- placed Carmarthenshire trio. It is be- lieved that r. John Hinds will not be disturbed in West Carmarth enshire, in which event either* Mr. Llewelyn Williams or Mr. Towyn Jones will have to find a new seat. How Mr. Yaughan Davies re- gards this proposed shuffle remains to be seen, but developments are awaited with interest.

Two Silver Cups FURTHER TRIUMPHS OF THE TABERNACLE CHOIR. Two further triumphs are to be added to the fine record of the Tabernacle Juvenile Choir. At Mumbles Eisteddfod on Saturday, they carried off first prize in the juvenile choir competition, and on Thursday at the Swansea Hospital Cen- tenary Carnival, they brought off a similar achievement. The Mumbles competition was adjudi- cated upon by Dr. Yaughan Thomas and Mr. Dd. Williams, the test piece being "Over the fields of clover." Five choirs competed and sang in the following order —Libanus (Cwmbwrla) Neath Abbey Fabians Bay; Waunarlwydd, and Taber- nacle. The adjudicators warmly compli- mented Mr. Adams' singers on their fine rendering and had no hesitation in award- ing them the first prize and silver cup. At Swansea on Thursday, the adjudica- tors were Mr. J. Gabriel, Bargoed; and Mr. Ivor Owen, Swansea. There were four ^choirs entered and Tabernacle with 78lmarks out of a possible 80, were awarded the silver cup given by Lady Mond. The adjudication on the local choir was:—excellent tempo, voices beau- tiful and most charming, balance perfect, tone delightful, phrasing correct, intona- tion good all through, the sopranos doing the top G. with a most pleasing ring; rhythm clear and distinct; the solo parts of soprano and altos were beautiful.
HOME ON LEAVE. I Numerous friends of Private Ivor Jones, Stanley street,- of the Welsh Guards, were at the Llanelly Railway Station on Saturday morning to welcome him home on leave from France. "Ivor" is an old reserve, having served 12 years with the Grenadiers, and in consequence was called to active service at the out- break of the war. He has been in France for nearly three years, and has gone through some trying experiences. His friends were delighted to see him looking so well, and previous to his re- turn will make him the recipient of a presentation. A correspon d ent writes:— I f there is I A C'orrespondC'nt writes :If there is oil waiting to be found in this country, will not the dowser get his chance ? Or are his powers confined to water ? Wales and the West appear to be the happy home of water-finders. Llanelly produced two who were highly successful, and pub- lished a hook giving full particulars of their experiences. Somersetshire, too, has given us more than one dowser. Mr. Storrie's sturdy attack on this method of divination twenty years ago is not for- gotten; but it has at any rate one scien- tific convert of undoubted eminence, viz., Sir William Barrett."

Relief Cases APPLICATIONS TO THE GUARDIANS I A number of relief cases were dealt with at the meeting of the Board! of Guardians on Thursday, when Mr. W. Y. Nevili presided. I From a Sanatorium. It was reported that a man who had recently returned home from a Sana- torium had applied for relief. Relieving Officer White explained that the applicant had a son in the Army while another son was living with his sister. There was a daughter at home who earned 26s. 3d. Mr. W. J'ugh said the Board should show their appreciation of the efforts of the woman who was working day and night to keep the home going. It was true that there was 26s. 3d. a week going into the house, but having regard to the cost of living to-day and the man's great need of nourishment, this sum was totally inadequate to keep two persons. He moved that the man be allowed a quart of milk per day or 4s. per week. The Yice-Chairman (Mr. Thos. Jones): Don't you think the son should con- tribute ? Mr. Pugh,; That is another matter; I am not exonerating him from his respon- sibility at all. It was decided to allow the man a quart of milk per day and to make inquiries as to the earnings of the son who was in civil employment with the view of getting him to contribute. A Woman's Application. I A single woman who had been ill for years applied for relief, and Relieveing Officer White reported that her sister lived with her. A small cottage together with t52 was left by their father, but they said the money had nearly all been spent. He recommended that they be allowed 9s. per week. Rev. Trevor Jones advocated relief to the extent of lis. per week. Mr. Pugh: I am sorry to go against the rev. gentleman, but we have other cases in the neighbourhood in which we only give one half the sum he suggests, and if we grant lis. in this case we shall have So face the difficulty there. To avoid this we should accept the officer' § recommen- dation. It was decided to grant 9s, per week. Result of Illness J A shunter at the Copperworks who was a married man, 37 years of age, applied for relief. behoving Officer White reported that the man, who had a wife and four chil- dren, had been ill for three weeks and had previously been in receipt of relief. It was decided to grant tl per week.

Compensation to Widows I INCREASED ALLOCATIONS. DEMAIvDED. At the meeting of the Board of Guard- ians on Thursday, a letter was read from the Merthyr Union asking the Board to support a resolution in favour of petition- ing the Government to increase the allot- ments made by County Court Judges under the Workmen's Compensation Act to the widows and dependents to the ex- tent of 50 per cent. Mr. IVni. Pugh: If you remember we had a case the other day in which we con- sidered that the amount allocated by the Judge at the Llanelly County Court was insuiffcient, and we expressed our opinion on the subject at the time. Personally I do not think the allotments made by Judges are sufficient, and I propose that we pass a similar resolution. Mr. Henry John seconded the resolu- tion which was carried, and it was decided to forward copies to the Government. j
Board of Guardians. I » of Guar d ians A meeting of the Board of Guardians was held on Thursday when Mr. W. Y. Nevill presided. Discharged Soldier's Gratuity. It was reported that a gratuity of £ 50 had boon allowed a discharged soldier, who was an inmate of the Carmarthen Asylum and was chargeable to the Llan- elly Union. On the motion of the Chairman, it was decided to defray the cost of the man's maintenance out of the gratuity. No Applications. I The House Committee reported that no applications had been received for the post of laundress, and that it be again ad vertised. Lady Howard in moving the adoption of the recommendation said it was most unfortunate that no application had been received as there was not a competent person to attend to the machinery and there was a danger with so many people about who were mentally deficient. Mr.. Pugh I am sure you are not going to have an efficient laundress for £25, which is the salary offered. If the new machinery is going to effect an economy we shall have to get an efficient person in charge. I propose that we allow £ 30 per annum. Lady Howard The only reason why we did not raise the salary was that it would affect the salaries paid to other officials who are being paid on the same ba,sis. I must say I do not think the salaries we pay our officials are excessive. It was decided to adopt the recommen- dation of the House Committee. Flour Prices. I The House Committee recommended that the tender of Messrs. Owen and Bowser for flour be accepted, subject to the Clerk being satisfied that the tendered price, viz., 63s. 6d. per sack came within the limit fixed by the Food Controller. Lady Howard explained that three tenders were received, the prices ranging from 65s. to 63s. 6d. per sack. The Vice-Chairman (Mr. Thos. Jones: 63s. per sack is a big price now, and I suggest that the Master should only order sufficient for the week as there is likely to be a big drop. The Master: e only order four saci-s a month now-sufficient for a month. The Vice-Chairman: You ought to have no stock of flour in hand on the 15th inst. so that you will be able to order on the 17th when the controlled prices will be in force. It was decided to adopt the recommen- dation of the House Committee. I Boy for Training Ship. Tho House Committee recommended that a hoy from the Cottage Homes be sent to a training ship. Lady Howard in moving the adoption of the recommendation, said the boy re- mained out one night and had run back to Burry Port to his old surroundings. His mother was in the asylum and his brother who was only 16 or 17 years of age, was too young to look after him. According to the suggestion of the Local Govern- ment Board Inspector, the House Com- mittee recommended that an effort be made to get the boy removed to a train- ing ship and very favourable reports had been received concerning the training ship they had in mind. The recommendation was agreed to.

Local Railway Changes I —- 6 .— INTERESTING PRESENTATIONS. The London and North Western Rail- way have ceased to deal with traffic at Llanelly since August 31st, and are trans- ferring their staff to other districts. The Great Western Company will deal with all traffic here until after the war when the L. and N. W. Co. intend to re-opon their establishment. Mr. Williams, the present agent, will continue to represent the company at Llanelly. The members of the staff who left on August 31st, made a parting gift to the agent, of a suitably inscribed ebony walk- ing stick. Mr. Hancock, chief clerk, in making the presentation, said it was the unanimous desire of the staff that a tangible expression of the esteem in which Mr. Williams was held should be made. Other members of the staff having spoken in a similar strain, Mr. Williams thanked them all for the evidence of their good-will, which had come as a great sur- prise to him, and expressed the hope that when the company resumed operations at Llanelly at least, some of them would be transferred back I here to give him the same loyal co-operation as they had given in the past. Following this a presentation was made by the agent, on behalf of the staff, of a silver wristlet watch to Mr. W. S. Hughes, clerk, who has been called up for military service. In handing over the watch Mr. Williams expressed regret at having to part with Mr. Hughes, and thanked him for the loyal service he had rendered to the Company during his period at Llanelly. Several of Mr. Hughes' colleagues spoke of his good qualities, and all joined in the hope that the time would soon come when he would be able to rejoin the rail- way service. Mr. Hughes, in responding, said he needed no reminder of the pleasant time he had spent at Llanelly, but the watch would always be cherished by him as a token of their regard for him.
H. POLICOVSKY Begs to inform the Public that he RE-OPENED with a Large Stock of New and Second-hand BOOTS AND CLOTHING AT 12, Cowell Street (Opposite Mr. Evan Jones, Chemist).
Father and Child DETERMINED ACTION BY THE GUARDIANS. It was recommended at the meeting of the Board of Guardians on Thursday that the application for a child named Betty Adams, who was an inmate of the Cottage Homes be not entertained, and that the Board should defend any action that the father might take. Lady Howard: This child was brought into the workhouso by Nurse Lewis. The father, who is an Irishman, came over to this country to work on munitions and brought his wife and child with him. He kept them practically without any food in the house and the child was dying of starvation w hen Nurse Lewis took it from there and brought it to the workhouse. The mother is not in a fit state to care for the child, and we have adopted her. I move that the adoption of the recommen- dation of the House Committee and let the father take whatever action he likes. The Vice-Chairman: Where is the father now ? I Lady Howard: At Swansea I believe, but I have not heard from him lately. The Vice-Chairman*: He is surely re- sponsible for the child. Lady Howard: Certainly, but he was .starving her, only the matter did not come before the Police Court. If we had waited for the case to be heard at the Police Court the child would have starved. It was decided to adopt the recommen- dation of the House Committee.

A Painful Case, — 0 — WOMAN AND HER HUSBAND*: A sad case was mentioned to the Guardians on Thursday by Relieving Officer White. It came up on an applica- tion by a. man for relief on behalf of his married daughter, 32 years of age. She had two children dependent. The woman, said the officer, was living apart from her husband and an order was made against him in December, 1916, by the magis- trates for the payment of 24s. per week towards their maintenance and that of her children, but he had only paid tS since, and had been in prison twice as a consequence. The Chairman: We can only offer th& house, but the officer has to see that the woman and her children, do not starve. Mr. W. Pugh: It should be explained that the husband is not quite responsible for his actions at all times. Mr. Elias Davies: This, is a very pain- ful case. The man at times is mentally deficient, and twelve months- ago he tried to commit suicide and was committed to the Quarter Sessions, where he was dis- missed with a caution. His wife could not live with him as he drank and gambled everything he could get hold of. When she saw it was impossible to live- with him she got the magistrates to make a maintenance order against him,, but he only paid for a few weeks and he has been in prison twice. It is all very well to talk a bout bringing the woman to the workhouse, but she has been brought up very respectably, and I think we should stretch a point by assisting the grand- father in maintaining his daughter and grandchildren. The Chairman: I think it is for the magistrates to enforce the order. Mr. Davies: The man will go to prison every time. Rev. Trevor Jones: I am not against granting relief, Lut is it legal to do so ? We have refused relief in somewhat similar circumstances because we were told it would be illegal to grant it. The Chairman: That is the point; I am; afraid we cannot grant relief in such cases, Mr. Pugh: Then I hope the relieving oiffcer will do all that he can in granting relief in kind, as 30s. a week is totally in- adequate to keep a family of five.
I INTERESTINC PRESENTATION. I To mark their respect and esteem, the workers of H.M. Office of Works at Pem- brey recently presented Mr. If or Brown, I Richard street, Llanelly, with a handbag. Mr. Evan R. Lewis, Llandilo, in making the presentation, spoke of the sterling qualities of the recipient. Mr. Brown, in acknowledging the gift, said that during: his stay amongst the workers at Pembrey 'comradeship' had been the foreword. Mr. Fred Williams, Pembrey, occupied the chair. During the evening songs were given by Messrs. T. J. Bavies, Jack Roberts, W. Brown, Hewett, W. Davies, and others.
