I Tramwaymea & Christinas I 11 AN APPEAL TO THE PUBLIC. We are auked by the tramway workers of Llanellx to publish the following ap- peal :—The tramway workers of Llanelly appeal to the public for their assistance and co-operation in an endeavour to bring about a cessation of traffic on Christmas Day, as was the case last year. What with the bad weather and the ex- cessive, hours we work, we think that we are quite justified in asking for a holiday on this one day, so that we can sit down j and enjoy Xmas with our families. -1.

NOTES OF THE DAY.
NOTES OF THE DAY. IP — I From our London Oorroap<>ndeni. A DISAPPOINTINC CHEOK. I •She reaction on other military frents 4 the collapse cf Russia is already pain- fully evident. In the first place it en- Med the Central Empires to concentrate a large fore- against the Italians, where- upon the unfortunate defection cf one of the Italian armies opened Italy's mount- ain door to the invaders. Presently it was necessary to send military help to Italy- As usual, England, the universal provider of the Allies, sent most troops And even took over more of the French line in France to make up for the French troops that were despatched to Italy. ilil- result was that our reserves on the Western Front were seriously depleted. We have seen the consequences this wøek. Unable, owing to insufficiency of forces, to repel the desperate attacks by the Germans on our newly-won positions over against Cambrai we have had to re- tine and yield back to the enemy some of the. ground gained in the brilliant victory achieved a few weeks ago by Sir Julian Byng's army. It is a very dis- appointing check, though we retain most of our original gains. From all accounts 'i f 0111- oi-igiii??' i gi?liis. the German looses in their counter at- tacks on this sector have been enormous. But reinforced by divisions from the Russian Front the German generals did Iot mind recklessly roiniorcing their men if they could drive us back from our positions commanding Cambrai; and they have done so, though at an enormous price. UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY LOST. Had Sir Douglas Ilaig had at his dis- posal the British divisions sent to Italy to help the Italians to defend their own country-a. job which Italy ought to be able to accomplish on her own—we I might have succeeded in breaking through the Hindenburg line at Cambrai. A I unique opportunity of doing so has un- happily been lost. As the Germans in the West now outnumber the Anglo- French forces, so favourable an oppor- tunity is not likely to recur; and we must settle down once more to the ding-dong of trench warfare. Such a prospect holds out little hope of a military decision being reached on land. A YEAR TO-DAY. I A year tu-day 11 r. Lloyd George be- came Prime Minister. His accession to power was not unacceptable to the nation, though some of the circumstances ac- companying the deposition of Mr Asquith wore a sinister aspect. The Asquith ad- ministration had lost public confidence by reason of dilatoriness and irresolution; and only a bold reconstruction would have saved the situation. Mr. Asquith fell because he would not act boldly. Mr. Lloyd George was his inevitable succes- sor. The new Prime Minister commenced with favouring auspices. He had and has a most friendly Press, and Mr. Asquith has behaved towards his Government with great magnanimity. The nation, which saw in* Mr. Lloyd George the in- carnation of its war spirit, a sort of em- bodied energy, has been loyal, devoted, self-sacrificing. Xo Government has ever has less cause to complain of critic- ism. Yet now at the end of twelve months its reputation has sunk almost to zero. Part of this decline in repute is due to the disappointment of military, hopes. These unrealized expectations are, of course, the result of Russia's paralysis. For that paralysis the British Govern- ment is not responsible; but its prestiffte is dimmed even by the failures of an Ally. That is the way of the world. One re- members how the Asquth administration suffered in repute 13 months ago by the collapse of Rumania—an event for which it had no sort of responsibility, but yet one for which it was blackguardly as- sailed by the Northcliffe Press. RECORD OF THE GOVERNMENT. Altogether apart from the Russian -collapse, there is a widespread feeling that the Lloyd George Government has not made good. Its statesmanship has not been sagacious: how badly it handled the situation created in Russia by the overthrow of the Tsardom How scurvy was the War Cabinet's treatment of Arthur Henderson What blunders have there been about food How unrero/ted have been the Cabinet's dealings with prices and wages What confusion has prevailed in some of the public depart- ments Some things have been well done: for example, the formation of the Ministry of Shipping was an inspiration But in the mass the Government's ac- tivities have been disappointing, and on the whole i* is a black record for the year. I do not think, however, that the Government's life is in danger. The fact is, nobody wonts Mr. Lloyd George's job. What an incongruous position he holds as head of a Cabinet including arch Im- perialists like Curzon, Milner and Carson It is a thousand pities tba.tt&e, Asquith—Lloyd George combination was ever broken up. We owe that calamity to the malign influence of Lord North- cliffe.

I The Popular. I "Milestones," a, play which is im- mensely popular amongst the British public, is to be screened at the Popular next week—an announcement which will be hailed with unbounded satisfaction by all the patrons of this popular place of amusement, and the manager (Mr. C. S. Jones) will once more have earned their deep gratitude. So as to preclude the pos- sibility of disappointment through The Popular being too crowded for late comers to gain admittance, Mr. Jones with that foresight, which is so character- istic of his management, has arranged to screen "Milestones" on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 7.30, and at no less than six matinees at 2.45., "Milestones" is an all-British production, and the chief characters are delineated by such re- nowned actors and actresses as Isobel Ebsom, Wnifred Delevanti, Minan Grey.

We regret to have to report the death of Pte. Arthur Gower Jenkins, of Hill- side, Bigyn Hill, who made the supreme sacrifice on the Western Front on the 23rd November. He enlisted soon after the declaration of war, and served with the loth Welsh in some of the heaviest fighting—having been in France for two years.

Edmunds, who before the war was in business with his father as ironmonger, was exceedingly popular. The lWWS came as a shock to his numer- ous friends.

Salaries of Teachers. —.0.
Salaries of Teachers. — .0. PROPOSED UNIFORM SCALE FOR THE CO I NT Y. At the meeting of the Governors of the Intermediate bciiool en Thursday, tne 11a yor (Aid. D. James Davies) who pre- sided, reported that along with Mr. W E. Clement and Mr. y, Ni illis Jones, he I attended the contcrenco at Carmartnen, tne purport of which w». i to try and lor- mulate a uniform scale 4i sali-iek; for the county. One point submitted by the Headteachers' Association was adopted, and that was that the commencing salary of the female teachers should be the same as for the males. In regard to the uniform scale for the county tftere was variety expressed. Personally he was against any uniformity in the scale on the ground that it was against all economic laws and would be against Llanelly County schools. Mr. Clement and Mr. Willis Jones sup- ported him, and he pointed out that Llan- elly had to compete with SVunsea, who offered a very much higher scale than that which would be paid in the Carmar- (thenshire county, with the result that > they would have a better clas.s of teachers It was proposed at the conference that a uniform scale should be adopted for the county, and he proposed an amendment that Llanelly should be excluded, and the Warden of Llandovery who seconded the amendment, recognized that Llanelly was important industrial centre. However it did not go to the vote, a sub-commit- tee being appointed to go into the scale of salaries for secondary teachers in the 'county. Replying to Mrs. W. Y. Nevill, the Mayor said: "We are fighting for the self preservation of the Llanelly County Schools. If Llanelly was a county borough it. could not be included. Llan- elly is not a county borough yc-t—it may be sooner than you thinL-but if you in- clude the industrial area served by these schools it would be large enough for a county borough." 1 The Headmaster: May I ask whether you have any idea as to what you are going to propose at the meeting of the sub-committee ? The Mayor: No, we shall be there as individuals, and we shall have no right to tip the hands of the governors. We will express our individv-u opinions, and they will be expressed strongly as far as I am concerned. The Headmaster: I only want to know what your personal ideas are. The Mayor: The policy of the Llanelly representatives will be to ask to be saved from the inclusion with all the other schools. The Headmaster: And then you will decide for yourselves ? Mr. W. E. Clement: Yes—what we want is absolute freedom. The Mayor All the representatives are in the same position as .L we are. The County Committee canno- compel us to join. We shall have perfect freedom of action afterwards, but we don't want them to pass a resolution for inclusion if we can avoid it. Mrs. Nevill: Then you cannot do very much harm. The Mayor No, and I hope we shall do a great deal of good. I may say that the teachers in the county are very glad we are taking up this attitude because they believe it will have a tendency to build up the smaller schools in the county.

Beer for Christmas. HUMOROUS EXCHANGES AT THE I TRIBUNAL. At the meeting of the Borough Tri- bunal on Thursday, Mr. Leslie Williams. who represented Messrs. Buckleys i Brewery Ltd., said the Company realised that they could not ask for exemption for John Thomas, who was only 18 years of age, and was in Class A, but he was do- ut he was do- ing a class of work which girls could not do, and the only question was the time the Tribunal would allow to make other arrangements.. The Mayor: Only sufficient time to en- sure sufifcient Xmas beer (laughter), The appeal was dismissed, Thomas not to be called up for a month. No beer for tneLieutenant. A maltster, named D. J. Jones at the employ of Messrs. Buckleys Brewery was represented by Mr. Leslie Williams, who said the man was married with five chil- dren, and was classed C 2. "This man," said Mr. Williams, "works 77 hours a week so he cannot join the V.B. Lieut. Ingrams: They seem to be over- worked in this brewery (laughter). Mr. Williams: Well, perhaps it is people like yon and myself that cause it (renewed laughter). Lieut. Ingrams: I don't know; I am not allowed to drink beer now (more laughter) Mr. Williams: I am sorry to hear that because I'm sure it would do you good (laughter). The Tribunal allowed four months post- ponement on condition that Jones joined II Section D of the V.B.
I The Rev. Ernest Jones, C.F., attached II Suffolk Regiment, of Stuhhms Congrega- tional Church, Ramsbottom, is lying I wounded in France. A German prisoner, he says, watched over him like a father, I and placed him in a shell hole out of further danger.
More Allotments. I y ANOTHER TWENTY ACRES TO BE ACQUIRED. The allotment movement has been a great success in Llanelly. Already about 50 acres have been brought under culti- vation, the number of "allottees" being 672. We are informed that the Cor- poration have now taken steps to bring still more land into cultivation. On Thursday, the Town Clerk served notices upon owners for another 20 acres which will be divided among suitable applicants. All this land is in and about the borough and it means that the productive capacity will be increased by nearly 50 per cent. The importance of increasing the supply of home grown food cannot be over-esti- mated, and it is gratifying to find that the Corporation are fully alive to the urgency of this national need.

He cherished happy memories of the cordial co-operation of all concerned, and he trusted that the new Volunteer movement would prosper t and flourish in the county. I

The attention of all tradesmen includ- ing butchers, bakers, milkvendors, etc., is called to the very important meeting to he held in the Town Hall on Monday next, Dec. 10th, at 7.45, to discuss the question of Co-ordination of Transport. The scheme will be fully explained and the aims of the Government brought he- fore the meeting, and it is expected that each trade should make its own arrange- ments to effect the necessary economy in transport, as desired hy the Govern- ment. Failing the adoption cf a voluntary scheme in any district, the Food Control- ler mav he obliged to introduce a com- pulsory scheme of economy. It will there- fore be to the immediate interest of every trader concerned to ] l)e present at the j meeting and make himself acquainted with the scheme, and help the committee in coming to an agreement on voluntary lines and bringing it into effective oper- ation.

Decree for the Wife I PECULIAR CIRCUMSTANCES IN I LLANELLY CASE. A peculiar case for the .restitution of conjugal rights was heard in the Divorce j Court on Thursday by Mr. Justice Horridge. The petitioner was Mrs. Margt. ) Elizabeth Stephens, The Dell, Llanelly, j and the respondent husband, Alfred j Stephens, who did not defend. Mr. Bayfyrd said the peculiar lea ture was that ftcr these prceeedings were II sta,rted, the husband went home and | j lived with his wife fcr a fortnight. Mr. Stephens, giving evidence, said that she married respondent in 1899, and afterwards lived at Broomhill, Kidwelly, happily until 1915, when respondent's health broke down. In March this year he went to London on business, whence I he wrote petitioner, saying that he was returning to work and there was "One thing I am quite determined upon asd that is not to return to Broomhill or live i with you." Later he wrote, in reply to petitioner: "It is quite impossible for me to return and live with you again." In September last, however, said peti- I tioner, her husband came to Broomhill, and marital relations were renewed for two weeks, when he finally left her. I A decree for restitution was pronounced with costs.

The banks concerned are the London and South-Western Bank. which have provisionally agreed to amalgamate as from December 31st, under the title of "London Provincial and South West- cm Bank. Limited." Under the terms of the scheme, the sliai-eliolclers of the London and South-Western Bank will be allotted three shares of sEYO each, on each of which f5 will be paid, for every four s hftres (-CIO each, £ 4 paid") now held bv them.

Household Sugar.I —^
Household Sugar. —^ HOW TO-OBTAIi.* RATIONED SUPPLIES. It is impor tant to (1) That after December 3i^L you can only obtain sugar by one of the following systems. (2) That you can only use the system which applies to your particular case. (a) The Household System. I if you have already deposited with your grocer a household sugar card, and ir vou are stiii a member oi the same household, Yott must go to your grocer after December 8th and ask for declaration lorms. When you have filled these up your grocer will gire you a retailers' sugar ticket for each member of the household, which must be shown when buying sugar after December 31st. (b) The Coupon System. I if you have not registered with your grocer on a household sugar card, or If you have left the household from which you were registered, I You must go w a post-office before December 15th, ask for an application form, fill it up, and post it as directed. You will later receive a ration paper I which will entitle you to get sugar coupons from a post-office. IMPORTANT TO GROCERS. I We are asked to make it clear that the sugar cards distributed some weeks ago are in no way affected by the new scheme. They will be used as originally intended. The portion retained by the grocer forms a register of his customers who will look to him for their supplies. It is necessary to point this out, because an impression has gone abroad that the cards were to be superseded by the new scheme. As a matter of fact, the "old" scheme will be followed in its entirety.
