￼ NOTES OF THE BAY. T141,, L 1, i. t, '1 From cur London Correspondent. Our Splendid Victory. The splendid victory of British arms this week in France is a remarkable com- ment on an unfortunate expression in Mr Lloyd George's speech in Paris, when he spoke of "the impenetrable barrier in the West. Our Third Army has made a rent miles deep and long in the Hinden- burg line, and we are now threatening Cambrai, an important junction of rail- ways and roads which is one of the nerve- centres of the German army in the West. The victory is very opportune. It will enhearten the Italians in their resistance to the invader, and it will spur the French to renewed exertions on our right. This success and our victories in Pales- tine are something substantial to off-set against a miserable chapter of regretta ble incidents in the past six weeks, when the very demon of ill-luck seems to have dogged the efforts of the Entente Powers. England, in whom hope still shines like a pillar of fire, will once more save Europe by her example as she has al- ready saved herself by her exertions. Everywhere, except in Russia. our Allies, have been uplifted and encouraged by our victories. Russia must be written off the account. She is a paralysed Colossus, controlled for the time being by a gang of wild men, who, "dressed in a little brief authority, play such fantastic tricks before high Heaven as make the angels weep." Such incidents as the appoint- ment this week by Lenin of a young en- sign to be commander-in-ehief of the Russian armies would be irresistibly comical were it not so tragic. No; we must look to Russia for nothing until her sanity returns. | The Prime Minster's Speech. My opinion of Mr. Lloyd George's Paris speech has not been altered by the great oratorical success he achieved in the House of Commons on Monday. There were grave indiscretions of phrase in the I -ns oi p h rase in the Ppi-is oration, and these remain still without excuse. But it is ouly fair to acknowledge that the Prime Minister swept his Parliamentary critics off their feet on Monday. The attack on him was feeble in the extreme. Mr. Asquith was flaccid and hesitating, and employed his time in making small, niggling points. It was the speech not of a statesman but of a pettifogging attorney. The vigour, incisiveness and dramatic power of the Prime Minister stood out in striking re- lief in comparison with this vacillating performance. I have never heard Lloyd George speak with more eloquence, energy and h"e. His justification of the new Allied Council at Versailles was un- answerable; and, content with that sub- stantial reform, he adroitly dismissed the Paris speech as mere embroidery and trimmings. He is once more firmly in the saddle as Prime Minister. Capt. Neil Primrose. I A pang of acute pain has been caused in Parlirffoentary circles by the death of Captain Neil Primrose, Lord Rosebery's second son. Few men were more popular in Parliament and in society. Though he had not the dazzling gifts of his father, he had inherited in full measure his father's charm. He had also real abili- ties and was a. singularly attractive speaker, the effect of his oratory being enhanced by a handsome presence and a rich melodious voice. A lev. months ago I met Neil Primrose in a Glasgow hotel, and we had breakfast together. We had a pleasant chat about the war and politics, and about his beloved friend, Tommy Robavtes (Lord Clifden's son), who was killed in action in France. Captain Primrose was then looking for- ward eagerly to the prospect of rejoining his regiment in Palestine. He need not have gone out: he had already played his part manfully in the war and had im- portant political work to do at home. But the thought of his old comrades fighting made it impossible for him to re- main here with case of mind, and he re- linquished Westminster joyfully for the battle-field. Like some other choice spirits he has given a shining example of sacrifice a nd devotion in this war. Such men are the salt of the earth. Neil. Primrose had Jewish blood in his veins, his mother having been a Rothschild. He was proud of his Jewish ancestry, and there is something pathetically appro- priate in his dying in Palestine, the old home of the chosen people. T,te Reform Bill. The Reform Bill is now near to its concluding stages in the House of Com- tnons. This week the House decided to enfranchise soldiers and sailors of 19; to give the municipal vote to the wife of every married householder; and to dis- franchise the conscientious objector. Finally it has adopted the principle of the alternative vote. This is a very im- portant reform. In future whenever there are three candidates for one Par- liamentary seat, the voter will be able, in addition to voting for his own favour- ite, to indicate on the ballot-paper his second choice. The result v.ill be that no longer will f a Liberal; or a Labour as the representative of only a minority iu the constituency.
New Sugar System. .0—
New Sugar System. .0 — A COUPON SCHEME TO BE I INTRODUCED. I I Few members of the public are yet aware of the revolution m the sugar- rationing system hidden in the new "re- gulations for cases of removal" recently published. The household sugar-card system is to be wiped out, and a coupon system gradually introduced. One of the j Food Control officials explained yesterday some of the main points of the change as follows- I No sugar-is to be supplied on the exist- ing sugar cards, issued to families and households. Their place will be taken by cards issued to individuals. In order to ,obtuin individual cards for the house- hold the following procedure must be ob- served Take ycur sugar-card, between Nov. 26 and Dec. 15 to t-ie grocer whose name appears upon it. He will give you in return a "declaration form" for each person in the household. Take away these forms and get tfcest! signed individually by the persons for whom sugar is required. Return the signed forms to your grocer. The grocer will give you in exchange the corresponding number of indi- vidual cards. It will be necessary to show these cards to him every time you wish to draw a sugar ration for the person who has signed—whether j yourself or some other member of the family. This procedure must be followed whether or not there has been a removal from the family. i The whole object of the new system is to enable people to move about freely and draw their sugar rations wherever they may be. Any Llanellyite going, say, to stay at Llandrindod (or vice versa) will take his sugar card with him, and upon presenting it at a post office obtain a supply of "sugar coupons" sufficient for eight weeks and available for use at any grocer's. Wh en he draws these coupons he will give up his individual "house- hold ticket, and will subsequently re- ceive through the post a "ration card." This "ration card," which will entitle him to draw more coupons, is the ultim- ate form 'which the organization is to ¡ assume.

I Dissatisfied Tinpl aters. THE RECENT AWARD. The award of the Committee on Pro- duction relative to the claim made by men in the South Wales tinplate industry has produced some discontent, but it can- not be too clearly understood that the tinplate employers cannot be held respon- sible for the situation, except indirectly. Requests have been made by the Trade Unions to the secretary of the Plate and Sheet Manufacturers' Associ- ation for & special meeting of the Tin- plate Conciliation Board, but the Con- ciliation Board, it is affirmed, cannot override an award by the Committee of Production. Representatives of the em- ployers and of the Trade Unions affiliated to the Conciliation Board are in London seeking modifications of the award. ■ ■■II ■■ II IIMI ■ II I IIIIIII MI I I MI i mi II Minim rem

-.-..-False Statements on…
False Statements on both Sides. ——— "$ ——— HARD SWEARING AT THE PO',IC COURT. "The Bench are satisfied that witnesses on both sides have made false state- ments." This was the declaration made by the Presiding Magistrate ^it the Police Court on Thursday in a case in which two boys, Martin Thomas and Thomas John Roberts, both of Pcntrepocth, were prosecuted for stealing 23 wooden keys, the property of the Llanelly and Mynydd llawr Railway Co. Mr. Leslie Williams apepared for the prosecution, and Mr. W. Davies de- fen d ed. Mr. Williams said the wooden keys were the small blocks which were ham- mered in between the railway line and the chairs, and he was instructed to draw their worships' attention to the very serious nature of the charge because the defendants were not charged with steal- ing loose keys on the line but they were actually seen hammering the keys out,- and within a distance of 50 yards the ganger found that 23 keys had been hammered out. If this kind of thing was carried on there would not only be serious damage to property but also loss of life. Since two of the witnesses had made their statements to the police the hoys had evidently been tampered with, and he would probably have to ask their j worships to treat them as hostile. Joseph Badger, Felinfoel, a ganger, said he examined the line on October 2nd and it was then in a proper state. He examined it again on October 5th, and found 23 keys missing within a distance of about 40 yards. Brinlcy Gray (11), 7, Stradey road, Furnace, said he was employed by Mr. E. J. Wilkins, Furnace, after school hours. He knew the defendants, but did not seen them on the. railway line. j Mr. Williams: Have you told anyone you saw them on the line P—No sir. Mr. Williams: Then I ask that this witness should be treated as hostile to prove that he has made a different state- ment. The Bench acceded to the application. Further cross-examined, witness ad- mitted having told P.C. Jones that he saw the defendants on the line, knocking the keys out with a stone. Mr Williams: Was that statement cor- rect or was it a lie ?-It was a lie. Mr. Williams: Why did you tell a lie ? —Because the policeman gave me a fright. If the policeman gave you a fright why should you have told lies about two boys who had done nothing ?-I don't know. Did the father of one of these defend- ants come to see you yesterday ?—Yes. What did he tell you to say ?—That I was in the house. Re-examined: He was frightened by j the constable because he was told he would be taken to the lock-up. He did not flee the defendant* en the tiDe at all I P.C. Jones (telinfoel) said that when j jointly charged with the offence Thomas said: "It was not I that did it," while Roberts said "I did not do it." On the same day witness saw Grey, who said he had seen the defendants on the line knocking the keys out with stones. Wit- ness wrote it down at the time, and after it had been read over Grey signed it. The names of the defendants were not sug- gested by him to Grey in any way, in fact he did not know the defendants and had no idea at the time that these boys were implicated at all. It was untrue | that he threatened to take Grey to the lock-up. Grey made the statement quite voluntarily. Griffith Roberts, father of one of the defendants, was called by the Court, and in reply to the Presiding Magistrate, said he did not go to see Grey. The Deputy Clerk: Then you say that when he says you went to see him he is telling a lie ?—Yes. For the defence, T. J. Roberts said he was operating the levers at the Llanelly Steelworks. At the time he was accused of being on the Mynydd Mawr line he was asleep in bed, having been working the previous night. Martin Thomas also denied having been on the railway on the date in ques- tion. Cross-examined: He was in bed at the time, it being his practice to go to bed every night at 7.30. The Bench dismissed the case, the Presiding Magistrate stating that the I Bench were satisfied that witnesses on both sides had made false statements. They believed the defendants were on the fine and that Grey when he made his statement to the police officer told the j truth.

h -1 A Word ?0 "L 'ewe "s orû to 'evve "n and Towyn?" — CONSCIENCE AND THE v.iOTE. (By Orion). Dear Sirs, I see that you voted against the amend- ment to deprive concientious obj. tors of the vote, in the House of Commons this week. Do you, in the first place, think that by so doing you represented the views oi your constituents ? 1 am cer- taill you did not. Every patriotic in- dividual in Carmarthenshire and else- where admires and applauds the fine work you have done in connection with the War Aims propaganda. Don't you think thereforo that you were rather self con- tradictory in acting as you did last Wed- nesday evening at Westminster ? The two kinds. There are two kinds of objectors—the (apparently-) sincere and the (obviously) fraudulent. The latter condemn them- j selves. The former variety hate war, t-.nd they refuse to do anything to help to win now. This war is an attempt—may it prove successful !to end war, fiy com- pletely smashing those forces which would make war recurrent in the hideous his- tory of its creation. Britain chose a dif- ficult path, but it was an hononrable one. Eewiiderfngly Illogical. These "sincere" objectors are bewilder- ingly illogical. They hate war: very well. If they detest it, and wish to put an end to it, surely they recognize that a sincere belief of that nature is in- effective and absurd unless some Action (capital A please) is taken to bring with- in the ambit of fact their pious hopes. Wars should cease, they say. But we want to know what they will do to help in bringing that about? This is the greatest crusade in history to kill the spirit that makes war possible. I should imagine that skich an opportunity as this was the very thing the conscientious ones were yearning for But they refuse to take any part in the war. A Contradiction in Terms. In reality, there is no genuinely sin- cere conscientious objector. The thing ■ is impossible—a contradiction in terms I They claim to be amongst the peace makers. It is they who help to make and prolong wars by their inexplicable pas- sivity. They argue that they are idealists. They advance the proposition that they are altruists. Rather they are selfish egotists The pcace-makers are the soldiers and the sailors, who, hating war with a religious hatred of which these are not capable, yet are striding with wonderful heroism and self sacrifice, yes, self sacrifice, Mr. Conscientious Ob- jector, to shatter the shrine of militarism —the fertile breeding ground of wars and dissensions. Why should men who will do nothing for the nation, nothing for humanity (and they profess to be such noble humanitarians !) be allowed the privilege of the vote ? Selfishness. Their prattle abotrt "conscience1' and 1 "principle" is^ so much cant in face of their glaringly selfish actions. "Humani- ty" is their parrot-cry, "myself" is their obsession. We shall be treated (I expect) to a lot of balderdash about "freedom," "liberty of opinion," etc., in connection I with this. What sort of liberty is this— the liberty to allow others to die for you and the liberty to refuse to do anything for anybody ? The "boys" are fighting for the objectors. They (the C.O.'s) ob- ject to fight. The nation objects to their having the vote They want liberty. There it is—the liberty not to vote It is right they should be penalized. I should like to know how many are "con- scientious" objectors out of fear and con- siderations .of personal safety and com- d ei I fort. It would be interesting Why should they take part in the affairs of a nation which they deliberately refuse to move a finger to help in a great crisis like the present ? Why did you vote against the amendment ? Yours, on behalf of many—many who have near and dear ones fighting (alas some are gone !) ORION.

We are requested by the Food Control Committee to point out that several Llanelly dealers have so far neglected to return th., official forms posted to them. It cannot be too clearly understood that unless this is done, dealers will not be able to secure supplies of butter later on.

We are informed by Mr. Thomas, the assistant -executive ofifcer, that similar forms have now been sent to all local butchers. These must be promptly re- turned so as to ensure regular supplies in the future. If through neglect to re- turn the form, and butcher is later on, without any supplies he will have only himself to blame.

It is to be feared, however, that their reverence for the Holy Land has not been deepened by actual experience of it. • « •« • The Rev. Rhondda Williams, who' lectured at Llanelly last week. says that the way teachers are paid in this country is a perfect scandal. "If yoa are a Charlie Chaplin," he says, "you can make a fortune, but if you are a teacher you must go begging." There are no half-measures about John Hodge. "Give the British woiknien the same facilities as they have in n,; he says, "and we will knock spots off he s,,iN-s, e v, them. I quite agree that no seaman can take Germany's blood-stained hand. I am in favour of 21 years ostracism." According to the M.O.K.. the use of long-tubed feeding bottles for babies is rapidly decreasing in Llanelly. This is largely due to the initiative of Lady Howard, who succeeded in securing the co-operation of the local chemists in dis- couraging their use. A charming letter has "been received by a little Miss residing near the Station from her big brother who is on active service out East. He dates his letter from "the Garden of Eden," and goes on to say: "I am going up the river Tigris to-day and shall be passing through Bagdad where all the magicians used to live." The old bells in the Llanelly Parish Church were two in number. One of them, it used to be said, was of so power- ful a tone that it could be heard "from Pen coed to Pembrey," while its vibra- tions affected the liquor in n neighbour- ing public house This would appear to be a new point in the annals of campan- ology. It may now be taken for granted that Mr. David Harry will be elected as the Berwick representative on the County Council. As a large employer of labour, Mr. Harry is deeply interested in the district, and with his previous ex- perience on the Council, he will no doubt be able to render good service to the hamlet. » • « • Local cricketers had a specially warm corner in their hearts for the late Mr. Thomas Seymour.
