NOTES OF THE DAY
NOTES OF THE DAY From our London rorrespondaEt. IHOME RULE FOR WALES. THE movement far Homr Rule in -L N%'a I)eep ?-ex I'N ckl,. Taken in conjunction with the lecent vote of the House of Commons I.,iNiLti huge Tory li oule -itule All majority) in favour ot Home Rule All Round the nice tings at iJindrindod are symptomatic of the stirrings of a new spirit. Tory prej udices against Home Rule immediately begin -to melt away if you call it Devolution, f;o much is there in a name, desiite, Jiil-L(,'ts' impassioned. protest to the contrary, The delegation, of distinctively Scottish, Irish and Welsh, business to local Pari;aments in Edin- burgh, Dublin and Cardiff would be an immense relief to the Imperial Iailiausent at Westminster., vvhw:h is now vainly en- deavouring to do justice to manifold duties, whose cuw1 illative weight is al- most destroying -its vitality. IRELAND'S PFHOn CLAIM. IRELAND hae priority to eonsideTat'iofc over Scotland and "W ales. It is Ireland that has fought the Home Rule fo&ttfc, and her claims it-separate and earliest treatment arc incontestable. Ulilike Wales and Scotland, Ireland has suffered persecution, cot;, iscation and oppression.. An alien Church, an absentee aristocracy, penal laws, the worst anclcd system in the world:—is fourfold oppression sapped tho life and v. ounde-d the spirit of IrelaDd ?ur ecnt.;?. The Ag1ican Ch,c,reh hasT?illlictl the peasants 'have'nccn mtdc owners 'oi the Boil; the infamous pedal laws have been repealed, but the effect of long centuries of injustice remains, and memories of past wrongs are tenacious, especially Irish memories. It used to he tnought that poverty aud agrarian trouble were the cause of Irish disaffection. We now know differently. Economic prospoTIiy- never were the Irish people more pros- perous than they are to-day-h,s not proved an anodyne in Ireland to political discontent. O1 the contrary it geenss to have fostered and stimulated agitu,tion.; The aliena-tior, the great majority of the Irish people from this country is complete. Never will Ireland be content nntH s'he is unstress in her own house, The movement 'lor Home Eu!e All RtMiiid must not be -allowed to side-track Ire- land's demand. Spiritually, ecinoiuically-, histonca?y, Ir?-md's case is distinctive, j and its urgency is incomparably greater r,eT?c,, is i tha-n Wil(-,s' need or Scotland's for aii-ex- tension of local self-government. SCOTLAND'S POSITION. ) GOTLAND" S ^differentia from Scot- I land are already marked, especially in religion, ednevriion and law. It is not Sv in Wales, though in race and language the Welsh people bear the indubitable marks \)f their separate race and nation- alitv. Tn'tl)e pd?iAini-,tration of Jaw and justice there is not 'the slightest difference between Wales ancl England. In reTigioc. Wales is Nonormf crriiist, but anti-epis- copnlianrsm is not in Wales established hy law, as Presbyteriaftism is in Scotland. Again from the point of view of economics there is far more affinity between Wales i and England than "between Scotland and England. To establish a national assemb- ly in Edinburgh would be a simpler task, than to set one np hi "Cardiff. The Kite hns yet to be cleared in Wales, but in Scotland not only are t'jie foundations laid but the super-structure ;B built. LABOUR INDIFFERENT. I i THERE is no enthusiatiRi among the working-classes for Home Rule All Round. More and more the tendency among them is to ignore national hound- arif-8 and to concentrate on the solidarity of the masses in every country. British trade unions recognize no distinctions among their members whether they hail from England, Scotland or Wales, and if devolution is to come the leaders of Labour will without douht demand that there shall he one code of industrial laws and uniform Factory Act administration for the whole of Great Britain. Labour will not consent to a splitting-up of its forces for the sake of gratifying the senti- 'ment of nationality. ABRAHAM LINCOLN." There is welcome sign of a reaction j against the inanity and frippery that have so bmg dominated the London theatres. A noble and bea.ntiful play by Mr. John Drinkwator on Abraham Lin- coln has for months drawn crowded r.udiences to an out-of-the-way suburban play-house. Lincoln is ono of the im- mortal figures of history. His heroic spirit, so resolute in war, so magnani- mous in peace, shines out in splendour from this excellent play. No one can wit- ness it without being iu>lifted in mind. Another play lofty in character has been produced this eek at the Court Theatre. "The Lost Leader," by Mr. Lennox Robinson, has an Irish atmosphere. Its governing idea, is the re-fecarnation of Parnell, who returns after 25 years to survey the Ireland in w-bose service he spent his life. It is iiot .i. partizan or propagandist play. It «?oves from first tc last on a high plane of thoiiglit feeling, lùhas a profínd lesson f-or the people afid for the politicians. That, lesson :i« that political machinery and material prosperity in themselves 'are of small recount; that 'the only thaitg that matters is the soiil- -,Ind that we all sadly j.eod to he regenerated. It is iae short a plea for spiritualised politics. There are some fine dramatist moments in the play and1 it is admirably acted. It-remains to i be sgeen whether 11' drama so idealistic will the favour sff the multitnde, ■ nBHSfKiSKiaKBa

Tinpiate Settlement I I ANOTHER CONCILIATION TRIUMPH I Yesterday, the Tinplate Industrial Council held, at Swansea, a meeting to deal with the question of wages in the tinplate trade. These were :-(1) A re- ducticn of hours at mills; (2) A general increase of wages; (3) Minimum wages to certain workmen; (4) Increased number of men per mill for annealing; (5) Payment for holidays; (6) Helpers to be paid on a graduated scale. More than ordinary interest was d- tached to.he meeting on account of the Welsh tinplate trade being menaced by American competition. j The main points round which dis- cussion centred were demands for six hours shifts in mills and for an all round percentage increase in wages. The men demanded an all-round advance of 30 per cent. The men were unwilling to accept j the employers' offer, which was, to give I an all-round increase of 12i per cent for ( months from June to September. Even- tue.IIy, however, it was agreed that for the three months specified there should be an increase of 12r per cent. With regard to the demand for a 6- hours shift in the mills, the employers made the concession that no extra mill should be started in individual works until all mills now working in those works were on six 'hours, but that no mills were to be stopped in order to change from eight hours to six hours. This was agreed j to. Steps were a lso taken with regard to the joint delegation to be sent to America, to investigate and report upon the con- ditions of working in that country. It was stated that both sides had selected representatives, and the tour would gin as soon as possible. | Thus a wage conference has once more been brought tc a satisfactory conclusion, j which says much for the attitude of bot4 sides, and may be regarded as one more triumph for the South Wales Tinplate Conciliation Board.

Too Late Again ! I -"""-I
Too Late Again I I BURRY PORT'S LOST OPPORTUNITY I A correspon A cOlTcspomh-nt writes :-It seems a | great pity to disturb the Public Hall Committee, now that it has gone to sleep again. It is necessary, however, to wake them up in order to inform them of what has happened- during their protrac- ted slumbers. While they have been wiapped in peaceful repose, other people have been wide awake with their eyes thorcugly "skinned" as the Americans say. So-ine months ago the committee in an interval of wakefulness discussed the j question of sites, and it is revealing no secret to say that the one most generally favoured was the field in Elkington read. After a lot of talk, the 4committee went to sleep again. It now transpires that since then the field has been pur- chased by an enterprising local farmer 1 from the Stepney Estate. What the in- ten tious of the new owner are is not known, but it is a grave reflection upon; the committee that they have let slip an opportunity of coming to terms with Lady Howard for this site. It is well- known that Lady Howard is a warm sup- porter of the Memorial Hall movement, and no doubt she would have gone a long way to meet the committee in proceeding with the scheme.

Mynyjid Mawr Trouble
Mynyjid Mawr Trouble It is reported that the Llanelly Myn- ydd Mawr Railway Company have ten- dered their notices to their employes ter- minating their engagement under the ex- isting conditions with the view of revert- ing to the pre-war state of affairs. Th% notices expire en Saturday, and it is probable that the men will strike on Mon- day next. Under the notice the company propose to increase the working hours from eiglit. to ten per day and to abolish the war bonus of about 150 per cent. We understand that the step taken by the Company is due to the continual re- fusal of the Board of Trade to place them on the controlled list of railways. Re- peated applications have been made by the Company to the Board of Trade but without any satisfactory result, although owing to the war, the Company have been badly hit. Most of the railways in the cotintiv are controlled, including the Burry Port and G.V. Railway, which serves practically the same district as the Mynydd Mawr. Under these circumstances, the Mynydd Mawr Co. have no option but to tender llüticps LI their employees, to revert to pre-war conditions which means the aboli- tion of 33s. a week war bonus. A stoppage on this railway will affcct the collieries at Tumble where about 2,000 men are employed. In fairness to the Company, it should be stated that the employees thoroughly appreciate the anomalous position created by the refusal of the Board of Trade to treat this railway as others have been and are treated. At the same time they can- not be expected to accept pre-war condi- tions involving such a tremendous loss of Wl ge S.

ASTERISKS. The famous "Jimmy Wilde" visited the town last Saturday. » To-night, and next week will he seeR some most lovely pictures at Llanelly Cinema, Stepney street. » Llanelly was represented this week fit the Oddfellows A.M.C. by Mr. W. J. Thomas, Dafen, and J". A. T. Jones. » Among those mentioned in Gen. Allen- by's latest despatch is Sgt. S. E. Bow- ser, Llanelly. A series of boxing tournaments will bo held in the town shortly. We understand the use of the Hippodrome has already !0Cn granted for this purpose. di Beer is now being supplied direct to "omo public houses by means of hose- pipes. Some thirsty souls in Llanelly could manage a hosepipe on their own. Llanelly took a purely amateur eleven to Swansea on Saturday, whereas the home team included two professionals, without whom tney would have fared badly. • » » u A Yankee met a Welshman with a cart- load of turnips. Yankee: "What are these-apples ?" Welshman: "No, mun.' Yankee: "I thought they were In my country apples are as big as them.' "Welshman: "But these are gooseberries, mun." No wonder the salaries of ministers are so scandalously low. A correspondent assures us that on a recent Sunday he attended a Welsh service and seated in the same pew were three prosperous workmen, each cf whom dropped a penny is; the collection tray. < < < Local visitors to Llandrindod were much interested to see Mr. Llewelyn Williams and Mr. R. J. Edmunds greet- ing each other on Monday. The political discussion which followed, with special reference to the Llanelly division must have been of a piquant character. • m « • The salary of the town crier at Llan- dovery has been increased by twenty shillings. What about Llanelly's crier, asks the ever-youthful William Evans. He estimates that judging by the Llan- dovery standard, there are arrears amounting to lí 10s. due to him. One of the accounts to come before the Harbour Trust on Monday is for station- ery supplied by a London firm, tho amount being £ 5 10s. Could not this have been supplied through one of tho Llanelly stationers who have to pay heavy rates for the upkeep of the har- bour ? There was quite a strong XIanelly flavour about Cardigan on Monday. A "Star" man came across in about five minutes two schoolmasters, a tinplato manager, a groo 's assistant, a clerk, a. 1 grocer, a rollerman, a commercial traveller, and half a dozen young ladies —all from Sospanville. < Mr. Thomas Thomas, one of the ar- tistes at Mr. Brazed's Concert next Tuesday will be remembered for his magnificent singing at the last national eisteddfod concerts in Llanelly. His rendering ox "The Enemy Said" from Handel's "Israel in Egypt" was a sheer delight. A real "film orama" Wa witnessed by all those present on the Beach on Wed- nesday evening. A young man after having a. "bout" with his friends in- formed them that he was going to com- mit suicide. His friends raised the alarm, and a large crowd soon assembled. Whether the absence of a "hero" or that the water was too cold, the young man, however, changed his mind, and the "pictures" finished. ■r « • « The midnight adventures of a well known local vocalist, returning by motor from a recent engagement, would mako good reading if detailed in full. It was the stupid car that caused the trouble by getting punctured near Llannon. There happened to be a deep ditch close by ar J the singer unfortunately found himself landed in this up to his knees. While tho puncture was bring attended to, tho vocalist's socks were put out to dry on the engine, but one of them mysteriously anished and has not been seen since. 1-1 the end the party pursued the even, "tenor" of their way to Llinelly, at least one member registering a meniai vow that he would never go motoring again without taking a snare pair of I socks with him.
