Criticism of State Purchase…
Criticism of State Purchase — $ — To the Editor of the "Star." j Sir, In reading the criticisms on the recent Temperance Convention held at Llandrin- dod in support of Mr. Lloyd George's policy of State Purchase and Local Option, one has been surprised to find a very widespread misapprehension of the motive and the meaning of State Pur- chase even among public men. As the matter is not now one of mere academic interest,, but one of urgent practical im- portance, I shall be greatly obliged if you will allow me to deal very briefly with a few of these in your columns. 1.—There are some who think that State Purchase is proposed in opposition, and as a rival, to Prohibition. This is an entire misapprehension. The two pro- posals are not mutually exclusive. Even if we had Prohibition, the case for State Purchase would still hold good; just as if we had Purchase, the case for wartime prohibition would remain as unanswer- able as to-day.- I have observed that some ill-informed and rather ill-tempered critics have sneered at Mr. Towyn Jones, M.P., because he declared at Llandrindcd that he was in favour of both. The fact of the matter is that most of the ad- vocates of Purchase known to me take up up precisely the same position. Sir Alfred Mond, Sir Thomas V* hittaker, Major David Davies, and Lord Rhondda, would gladly see Prohibition enforced for the war, but in spite of that, support State Purchase. What people fail to realise is that War-time Prohibition is only a temporary expedient to help the nation through a war crisis. After the war, the problem would be still unsolved. the battle against the liquor traffic would have to be fought all over again. State Purchase on the other hand would bo a substantial and a permanent contribution to the solution of the drink problem. It is asked, "Why press for Purchase and not for Prohibition." The answer is, that we have failed under more favour- able conditions than obtain now, to carry Prohibition, and there is no hope of carrying it to-day, partly owing to the composition of the present Government, and partly because of the temper of the -nation. We are pressing for Purchase as there are prospects of obtaining that, and when secured, would be a substantial gain to the cause of Temperance. I can quite understand temperance reformers still demanding Prohibition but their op- position to Purchase is incomprehensible, for it is throwing away the la.st hope of temperance reform in this generation. 2.-There are others who think that Purchase will necessitate" paying huge sums of money out of the National Ex- chequer to those with financial interests in the liquor traffic. I see that one sin- gularly ill-informed critic is declaring that it will even mean a new war loan, and that as we now obtain money from America, Purchase will alienate the Americans The fact of the matter is that Purchase means nothing of the kind. "The Purchase," as Sir Thomas Whit- taker, one Qf the greatest authorities on tke subject says, "Would be a big tran- 1 • -\T^ saction—on paper, out not 111 leant^. money would have to be found or paid. The price would be paid in Government stock, the interest of which would be pro- vided out of profits on the trade. No new capital would be raised. No addi- tional taxation would be required." That that can be done is supported by the fact that a special committee of experts has declared the proposal to be feasible. How it can be done may be seen by everyone who takes the trouble to consult the literature on the subject. The fact is that Purchase means acquiring the Traffic on equitable and honourable terms, at no cost to the State. If the expenditure of public money is an objection to temperanee reform, then War-time Prohibition is impossible, for the State cannot suppress the tramc without compensation out of the national funds unless it If going to treat its legal covenants with licencoes as "a scrap of pp('r, Purchase can bf effected without public money, but Prohibition ft.an-ot. 3.—Still, others think that Purchase lacks public support. May I point out that the recent Convention was perhaps the most representative and most in- fluential held in Wales in the present generation in the interests of temperance reform; that 1,200 public men in Wales have signed a memorial in its favour; that at the public meetings so far held to advocate this proposal, the resolution in favour has been carried by overwhelming majorities. Apart from the war, there is no political movement that unites so many people from so many sections of I the nation as State Purchase of the Liquor Traffic. Yours etc., I J.T.Rhys. 61, Sydenham Papk, London, S.E. 26.
The Tribunal I
The Tribunal I ANOTHER BATCH OF APPEALS. j A meeting of the Borough Tribunal was held on Thursday evening, the Mayor (Aid. D. James Davies) presiding. For Medical Examination. I In the case of Edgar L. Stephens, manager of a boot shop, appealed on per- sonal grounds, and Mr. Leslie Williams, who represented the appellant, said the man had suffered from rheumatic fever twice. He asked that the man should be oxtmined by the Central Medical Board. Postponed for six weeks for examin- ation by the Central Medical Board. No Hercules required. I A doorman and billposter named E. C. Argent, asked for re-examinatron by the Medical Board, and said that at times he lost his voice completely. Lieut. Ingrams: I have heard your voice on more than one occasion, and thero does not appear to be much the matter with it now. Replying to the Mayor, appellant said he had failed to get certificates from local doctors. He had been classified C 2. Lieut. Ingrams: You haven't got to be a Hercules for Class 2. Argent said that for five years he was unable to do any work at all. He was not averse to going to the Army as he had tried four times. Lieut. Ingrams: If the Board find you fit will you be prepared to go to the Army then ?-Yes. Adjourned for 14 days for re-examin- ation by the Medical Board. The Doctor's Chauffeur. I Dr. A. E. Brookes appealed for his chauffeur, W. J. Bennett, who said he was passed C 2, and had been twice re- jected, suffering from a fractured foot. Replying to Mr. W. Davies, who re- presented him, Dr. Brookes said there was a scarcity of medical men in the town and district, and one of the doctors was incapacitated. He could not carry an his practice without his chauffeur. Lieut. Ingrams: Are you willing for Imn to go in three months ? Dr. Brookes: No, as from a medical and surgical point of view he would not lie able to do the work. The man's foot is absolutely deformed, and to put a man like him on his feet for hours in a day is absurd. Lieut. Ingrams I don't propose doing that as I want him for the A.S.C. Dr. Brookes: But you don't take into acoount the fact that my work is of national importance. We are only seven doctors to deal with 45,000 people in the tswn and district. Postponed for three months. Discharged from the Army. A chipper cf steel billets named John Thomas, appealed, and said he had been discharged twice from the Army because he was medically unfit. Replying to Mr. J. Lewis Phillips, who represented him, appellant said he was subject to rheumatism. He had been classed B 2, and asked that he should be re-examined by the Medical Board. Lieut. Ingrams: When were you dis- charged from the Army last P—Sixteen months ago, from the 3rd Welsh. Lieut. Ingrams We know you are not fit for an infantry corps, and we do not ask you to go into such a corps now. If you can work for your living you can do something in the Army. A letter was read from the manager of the Llanelly Steel Co. in support of the appellant, and Lieut. Ingrams said he would try and get a protection card fr i the man. ,I" Postpo- ￼ '??j Mr 14 d?y< Re-examination, 1 Joe Saper, 30 years of a&, a picture I framer in Station road, said he had been passed Class A, and replying to Mr. J. Lewis Phillips who represented him, ap- pellant said he had been laid up for a long time. ■Postponed for 14 days for re-exartin- ation by the Medical Board. Must Join Volunteers. I A married man named Robert Davies A. 29) who was employed as foreman steve- I dore, submitted that he was doing work of national importance. He added that he had five brothers with the Colours, two of whom had been killed in action. Ald. Nathan Griffiths: Are you the only stevedore there ?-Yes. Ald. Griffiths: But you have only had one boat in the last fortnight. Appellant said he had communicated with the firm at Liverpool, but had not received a reply. Ald. Griffiths: Your brothers have done very well, but we have to deal with your case on its merits. The Mayor: You arc too young to be regarded as being in a certified occupa- tion. Appellant: There are men in Swansea in the same job as myself and they are younger than me. Postponed for three months on condi- tion that he joined Section B of the Volunteer Battalion. Conditional Exemption. I A carpenter named David Jones, in the eraploy of Messrs. Buckley's Brewery, was appealed for by his employers. Replying to Ald. Griffiths, appellant said he was the licensee of the Cricketers Arms and was also the conductor of the Town Band. He was 40 years of age and was classed C 2. Mr. Leslie Williams appeared in sup- port of the appeal. Conditional exemption was granted. The only man left. I A married man, C 2, named Thomas H. Jenkins, in appealing said he was former- ly a butcher and horse dealer, but now delivered oil for the Homelight Petroleum Company. Replying to Mr. E. Kammcror, who represented him, appellant said the firm supplied all the works in Llanelly, and he was the only man left. Postponed for three months on con- dition that he joined Section D of the Volunteer Battalion. Indispensability I I David John was appealed for by his employer, and Mr. Leslie Williams ex- plained that the man had joined the Navy. Lieut. Ingrams: I have had sheets of paper in connection with this case, and yet we are now told that he has joined the Navy. So much for indispensability. I
GUPID'S AFTEII-WAP DANGERS.
GUPID'S AFTEII-WAP DANGERS. The Rev. H. L. Warneford, Rector of Foxley, Malmesbury, in his harvest festival address, expresed fears that, not- withstanding the campaign for the alienation of Germans after the war, I Cupid might play a large part in re- uniting them with the English. It would bo a disgrace to our womankind, he said, to increase the population of such a country, and to lavish their affection on I offspring who almost from birth would be taught hate England. "For an I Englishman to marry a Hun," he addc1 "would be to import a spy into die land, an and for an Englishwoman to marry a 0 marry a Hun, and become 1:11 mothcr of future young IIp' .1"" '1 -f I th t young H' somet hing so aw ful that nltnlly lik .to oontemplate such a thing I as

Pastor and People. —o—
Pastor and People. — o — INTERESTING PRESENTATIONS AT CAPEL ALS. Capel Als was well filled on Tuesday night when interesting presentations were made to the pastor, Rev. D. J. Davies, B.A., and his bride. The meeting served a double purpose, as it also took the form of a reception to Mrs. Davies, who is the daughter of Dr. Stanley Jones, Carnarvon. As the pastor's helpmeet, she was warmly welcomed. Mrs. Davies was accompanied by her mother and her aunt, Mrs. James, wife of the Rev. Wm. James, Ebenezer, Swansea. The chair was occupied by the Rev. W. Stephens, Brynteg, a fine old veteran, who has now retired from the ministry which he adorned for many years. The venerable gentleman spoke in the highest terms of the pastor, and congratulated Capel Als on its wise choice of a successor to the late Dr. Johns. An interesting speech followed from Mr. David Harries, secretary of the church, who explained that the present- ations to be made that night were the outcome of a general desire expressed by the members to show their appreciation of the pastor in some tangible form. They had already welcomed him to their midst, and now it was their privilege to extend a real Llaiiellj* welcome to Mrs. Daries, hoping that she would soon find herself at home here. Several speakers followed, including Mr. Joseph Rees, Mr. Thomas Rees, Mr. I W. Williams, Goedwig; Mr. Wm. Davies, Mr. David Phillips, Mr. Ben Jones, Mr. John Griffiths, and Mr. Christmas Rees. A feature of the proceedings was the reading of Welsh verses composed specially for the occasion by Mr. William Davies (Bardd y Bigyn), which were re- ceived with enthusiasm. The presentations consisted of a hand- some roll top desk handed over by Mr. Thomas Rees, and a magnificent silver tea service, which was. handed to Mrs. Davies by Mrs Powell, Marble Hall road. During the evening a musical pro- gramme was contributed to by Miss Irene Marshall, Miss Rachel Williams, Mrs. Hinder, and Mr. Dick Jones. Next Tuesday, Mr. Davies is to receive a beautiful clock from the children of the Sunday School and Band of Hope.

Boy's Bad Record.I
Boy's Bad Record. I 4, BEYOND HIS FATHER'S CONTROL. I Joseph Henry Morris, 29, Ralph ter., was summoned at the Juvenile Court on Thursday for stealing a Soccer ball value 22s. 6d., the property of Mr T. H. Evans, Stepney street, who said that at 2.45 p.m. on Sept. 22nd, he saw someone leave the shop and went to see who it was. Twenty yards down the street he saw the defendant who had a Soccer ball under his arm. Witness then found a football missing from inside the shop. In consequence of information received he later in the day called at Dunn's shop where he saw the missing football, which was his property. Margaretta Francis, Frondeg terrace, an assistant at Dunn's boot shop, said that on Sepember 22nd at about 2.50 p.m., the defendant called at the shop with a football. He paid her 2d., tiie balance of an account he owed to Dilnn's, and he asked for leave to let the football there until he returned for it. She gave him cor sent, and shortly after he re- turned for the football, but in the mean- time she had received some information, so s he asked him to wait. Subsequently she handed the ball over to the police. P.C. J. D. Jones said he saw defendant at Dunn's shop. The boy said "Go back and ask Mr. Evans to give me another chance. I 'won't do it again." Defendant pleaded guilty, and Supt. Jones reported that the boy had been be- fore the Court on two previous occasions. 11 The boy's father said the lad was be- yond control, and asked that he should I)e,sciit away. The Presiding Magistrate (to the de- fendant) You have a very had record, and you ought to lie severely punished. We adjourn the case for a fortnight to see how you will behave yourself in the meantime. The Bench complimented Miss Francis upon the manner in which she had acted, and expressed the hope that if similar circumstances arose in the future she would be equally firm.
