Mayor Making. INTERESTING INVESTITURE YESTERDAY. SPEECHES BY THE MAYOR AND HIS DEPUTY. The investiture of Ald. D. James Davies as Mayor took place at the Town Hall yesterday, in the presence of a large number of people, Ald. Nathan Griffiths presiding. Coun. Daniel Williams said it afforded him much pleasure in proposing the re- election of Ald. D. James Davies as Mayor for the ensuing year. "I am sure," said Councillor Williams, "that no words of mine are necessary to let the Llanelly people know the good, solid work he has done during the last year." The motion was carried unanimously and the investiture then took place. THE MAYOR'S SPEECH. The Mayor, who was enthusiastically received, said:—It is only natural that I should regard it as a great compliment that you should re-elect me to the Mayoralty for another year. As the war advances, more and still more demands are made upon us, and I am pleased if I have been able to do the work to your satisfaction (applause). Of one thing I am very proud. When the late Sir Stafford Howard returned thanks for his re-election as Mayor for the third time, he said we were a very happy family. I We have been the same happy family during the past year (hear, hear). The country is at war, but the Corporation is not (laughter). When we look at our achievements during the past year we need not be ashamed. In regard to the administration of Pensions, Llanelly, the youngest municipal borough, has shaped the national programme. The idea of a Minister of Pensions was started in Llanelly, and we secured an amendment of that office and to the establishment of our Local Committee. At the present moment there is a menace I to the principle of government by the people by the impudent attempt which is being made to transfer the administra- tion of public health to Insurance inteiraiLk6 AAd. I frhink I can speak witk your approbation when I say that we as a Council will do our best to foil it (ap- plause). It is some satisfaction to know that we have reached a point when we shall establish a Joint Isolation Hospital (applause) In our other aspirations we have not been disappointed. We have succeeded in getting the name of Llanelly Division to the new Parliamentary Divi- sion (applause). In war work things have been going well (hear, hear). We -placed the Stebonheath School at the dis- t posal of the St. John Ambulance Brigade with an accommodation of lï5 beds. The Llanelly subscriptions to the War Loans compare favourably with the best towns in the country, and the local committee has continued to do excellent work during the year. They also conducted a very i successful Food Economy Campaign. In these two connections may I say how indebted we are to Mr. Glynne Jones who has acted as secretary throughout (ap- plause). There is also the important question of finance without which the war cannot go on. I hope that Llanelly will again be in the fore-front in this direc- tion. We are also in the midst of fixing food prices and of arranging for the transport of food and other articles. We apPeal to the public to co-operate so as to make things a success. Another move- ment which will assist the war is the completion of the first Battalion of the Carmarthenshire Volunteers. I I would like to see some members of the Council affiliated to that movement, if only as an example to others (renewed applause). May I express the hope that in the coming year we shall be able to arrange our meetings for the afternoon or the early evening in order that we may be able to attend drills. I have said a great deal with regard to technical in- struction recently, and now I will only say that I hope that whatever we do we shall not make a mistake in this very im- portant matter. I anticipate that we shall have to defend our water limits and to consider other very important matters relating to our water supply. Then again, as you know we have a very im- portant scheme for the I erection of 500 houses, I and there is also the question of re-con- struction after the war, and the develop- ment of our industries. The Mayor proceeded to pay a generous tribute to the deputy mayor and the Town Clerk, eulogizing their services to the town. The Deputy Mayor. I It was then formally announced by the [ Town Clerk, amidst loud applause, that the Mayor had re-appointed Councillor Daniel Williams, J. P., as Deputy Mayor. There was another outburst of applause when Coun. Dan Williams was invested with his robe and chain of office by the Mayor. In returning thanks the Deputy Mayor said:—I thank you, Mr. Mayor, for the confidence you hare felt inclined to place in me for another year. It gives me very great pleasure to accept the post, for the reason that you do all the work and I get the credit for what I don't do (laughter and applause). Harbour Affairs. I Regarding the port of Llanelly, my work on the Harbour Trust has been a labour of love (applause), because I knew something had to be done with our waterway if we were to keep Llanelly as a shipping port (renewed applause). We have had very bad luck, and I feel that if it were not for the war, Llanelly's port would hare been paying its way and paying its way well (applause). It is not our fault that it is in such a precarious position financially, but I can say that when I appealed for financial assistance I did not have a single refusal (applause) They responded to any appeal willingly, and said they hoped they would be re- paid some day, but I am afraid they will not be repaid before I go to them again to ask them to dip their hands into their pockets once more (laughter and ap- plause). The Corporation then adjourned to the Council Chamber where the ordinary business was disposed of.

Tinplaters' Wages NOTABLE STEP TO ADJUST I DIFFERENCES. For the first time in eighteen years re- presentatives of both employers and em- ployed in the tinplate trade on Thursday went outside their own Conciliation Board in an endeavour to adjust a grievance in connection with the men's wages. In no trade hcs a spirit of con- ciliation been more manifest than in the tinplate industry, and during the pro- ceedings before the Committee on Pro- duction at Old Palace Yard reference was made to the spirit of friendly negotiation which has always been a characteristic of the deliberations of the Conciliation Board. Sir David Harrel, who presided, expressed his appreciation of it. Included in the deputation were dele- gates of both employers and employed re- presenting the tinplate section of the Tinplate Conciliation Board, and for over two hours the conference discussed all the points arising out of the claim of the men that there should be an increase in the war bonus to bring the amount to all grades up to 100 percent. Two reasons were put forward in sup- port of the claim-the increased price in the cost of commodities and the irregu- larity of employment in the tinplate industry, due not so much to the lack of orders as to the scarcity of steel which to a large extent is reauisitimifvl hu thG .£. AJ.] "1. authorities for munition purposes. These two points were strongly emphasised by the men's representatives, who thought that in view of the circumstances under which the industry is now carried on the employees should not be penalised. The employers' representatives, I un- derstand, put forward their reasons for not agreeing to the men's proposals in quite a friendly spirit. It was pointed out that when the Con- ciliation Board failed to agree on October oth what was considered as a reasonable offer was then submitted, The employers for instance, had made counter-proposals of an inclusive 50 per cent. on wages up to 20s., 60 per cent. from 20s. Id. to 50s., and from 50s. Id. upwards 30s. a week. The evidence is to be investigated by the Committee, who will issue their award to the local secretary later on.
Clarke's the Man. I
Clarke's the Man. I "What a splendid programme This has been the comment of all those who took our advice and visited Llanelly Cinema, Stepney street, this week. "Clarke's the Man" knows what con- stitutes a good picture, good, clean, up- to-date films, not cheap, "year-old" stuff. On Monday to Wednesday of next week a great Fox picture will be seen, with beautiful Virginia Pearson taking the leadng role in "Bitter Truth." Also will appear the 3rd episode of "The Girl from Frisco." In these stories brimful of thrills, hair-breadth escapes, and highly dramatic situations, horsemanship and athletics enter very largely. From Thurs- day to Saturday "The Victim" is the star. It features that wonderful and amazing woman, Valeska Suratt. Seldom is. acting seen to such remarkable per- fection as portrayed by this great actress "David's Idle Dream," a two-reel drama, is very pathetic and engrossing, and for a real good laugh see "Her Father's Station." We shall be surprised if Llan- elly Cinema is not crowded during the whole of next week. This hall is about the best place to spend a comfortable, cosy time these chilly nights. But go early and get a seat. Patrons' comfort has the personal attention of the cour- teous manager (Mr..J. Cross). He and his attendants do all that is possible for patrons, and it is much appreciated.

A LLANNON FAMILY.I
A LLANNON FAMILY. I Some interesting facts concerning an ancient Welsh family are recalled by the announcement of an engagement between Mr. Edmund Treharne, Royal Scots, and Miss Camilla Adair, only daughter of Sir Robert Shafto Adair, whose family seat is in Suffolk. The bridegroom-elect be- longs to the Goring-Thomas family of Plas, Llannon, Carmarthenshire, who owned the estate of Llettymawr, in Llannon, in the sixteenth century. Their surname was originally Treharne, but be- came Thomas by one of those changes once common among the Welsh. The future bridegroom's grandfather, Mr. Morgan Thomas, assumed the old patron- ymic of Treharne, as did his brother George, who married a Baroness Hild- brandt, and had a daughter, Countess Ferdinandina Hildbrandt, wife of Count Theobald Butler, of Haimhausen, Bavaria

IA BUTCHER'S APPEAL. I
A BUTCHER'S APPEAL. I At the meeting of the Tribunal on Thurs- day, Llew. Arthur, butcher, Class C 2, said he was a married man with five chil- dren, admitted that he had not fulfilled the condition imposed by the Tribunal to act as public slaughterer. As an excuse he said he had plenty of work to attend to his own business. The Mayor: But why didn't you ob- serve the condition laid down by the Tri- bunal ? Appellant: Because the butchers did not give me work to do. Since the con- dition was imposed Arthur Lewis has been discharged from the Army and he is back at his work as public slaughterer.

i Open Door tempts the "Saint." BOY ROBS HIS EMPLOYER. I Elias James Pryor (11), 1, Mark lane, was proceeded against at the Police Court on Thursday for stealing j62 16s., belonging to Mr. Phil Hughes, tailor, Arcade. There were further charges of stealing t5 on four different dates. Phil Hughes, tailor, said the defendant had been in his employ outside school hours for eleven months. On Nov. 3rd, witness went upstairs, leaving the de- fendant alone in the shop. Two minutes later he returnefl, and shortly afterwards went to the drawer where he found £ 2 16s. was missing. When asked if he had any money in his possession defend- ant replied "No," but on searching him witness found JE2 16s. Witness gave him the opportunity of explaining where he had the money from, and defendant said it was his mother's change, but he after- ward s admitted having stolen it from the drawer. On September 17th he missed a £1 note and another on the following Wed- nesday and Thursday, while he missed £ 2 on October 22nd. The notes were stolen from the safe which was not locked. P.S. John said he went to Mr. Hughes' shop where he saw the defendant who when charged with stealing t2 16s., said "I have nothing to say; it is Mr Hughes' money. I am sorry I took it; I will not do it again." When charged with the other four offences. defendant said "T haro taken the money. I have spent it on sweets and icecream. I also purchased a watch, a flashlight, a wallet and fountain pen. I also hired a bicyclo and went to cinemas and treated boys to peas and faggots." Mr. Hayton Williams, who appeared for the defence, said his home life had been such that no complaints had hither- to been made against him. It was the old story of an open door tempting a saint. He had also to complain about the effect of cinemas and bad friends. The mother had not enjoyed a penny of the stolen money which the boy admitted having spent himself. Defendant's father had been in Egypt for the past two yeara, ..t grandfather would undertake to look after him in the future. If giren another chance a lad of such tender years as the defendant might yet become a good citizen. All the mother had to live upon was the Government's separation allowance, and she had three children to maintain. The Bench severely censxired the de- fendant, and his grandfather was bound over in the sum of £ 10 for the boy's good conduct.

1 "Persecuted and Insulted." j DISCHARGED SOLDIER'S OUTBURST "I was persecuted and grossly insulted when I was last before the Borough Tri- bunal" said Rees Davies, Black Lion Inn, when his exemption, was reviewed on Thursday evening. "Since then," added Davies, "I have been discharged from the Army. When my case was last heard I produced a medical certificate to the effect that I was unfit for service, but in spite of that I was sent to the Army. I wish the Press to take particular notice of the fact that I think Ald. Nathan Griffiths' two sons would go to the Army before I am called up again The Mayor: You must not say that. Davies: I've finished, Mr. Mayor. I may say that I am taking this oppor- tunity of vindicating myself. The Mayor: We know that you have been discharged from the Army.
