I THE TINPLATE OUTLOOK. THERE are several ominous clouds on the horizon of the tinplate trade. New factors of no little significance have made their appearance since the Armis- tice, and employers and workmen are looking to the future with some forebod- ing. Our staple trade, it is beyond question, will have to face in the coming months keener competition than ever, not only from America, but also in other countries which have hitherto been de- pendent upon South Wales for supplies. The Americans we are told, are cutting prices in neutral markets with a view to their ultimate capture, and the increased costs in this country make it impossible for us to follow them in this direction. What controls the situation is the price of steel, and in this matter, the Ameri- cans have a big pull over Welsh makers. Proposals are on foot also, to build tin- plate mills in Australia, Norway and Sweden. Fortunately, the Welsh trade i admirably organized and we note with satisfaction that a joint delegation of em- ployers and workmen has been appointed to visit the United States to study Ameri- can methods. This is a step in the right direction, and should be productive of; good results. It is refreshing too, in when there is so much distrust i between Capital and Labour, to find em- ployers and workmen combined in safe- guarding the industry in which they are so vitally concerned. SWISS VALLEY. I wE have every sympathy with the correspondent who, in another column, complains of the continued clos- ing of Swiss Valley to the public. Why this stupid piece of red tape was not cut months ago is beyond the comprehension of the average man. There may have been good reasons for the closure in the early days of the war when blood-curd- ling stories were current of atrocious Huns on the prowl, looking out for water- works to poison. Surely, however, that danger, if it ever existed, has long since passed away. Swiss Valley as our cor- respondent points out, is one of our none too numerous beauty spots. Within easy i reach of the town it offers a wonderful combinaton of charms, and in these blazing days of June, the two artificial lakes and their charming setting make up a. picture of surpassing beauty. It is nothing short of a scandal to deny the public access to this favourite resort and we trust that the Waterworks Committee will take the necessary action without delay. j THE COAL OUTPUT. I ONE of the most disquieting signs of the times is the serious decrease in the coal output. For the coming year it i estimated that only 217 million tons will he raised as against 287 millions in 1913 and 230 millions last year. This decline is made all the more ominous when it is borne in mind that many thousands of miners have now come back j to the pits. Lessened production of coal. as our London crrespondent pointed out ir. his striking article last week, will have ( far-reaching and disastrous effects upon trade and commerce. It will handicap i every British industry and also re-act most unfavourably upon our economic position. Coal is one of our greatest national assets. It is the corner stone of industry at home, and as an export, our stand-by in foreign trade as a substitute for currency. A lessened output means dear coal, and dear coal in turn meaifc that the price of every manufactured article is made dear. Take tinplates for instance. The threatened increase of 4s. 6d. a ton in the price of coal will send up the price of tinplates which already have to meet increasingly keen competi- tion from the American mills. To-day American plates are being offered at a price which the Welsh makers cannot touch What will be the position of the home manufacturers later on with coal at an enhanced figure ? The same thing applies to all home industries, not to speak of the hardships imposed upon poor people who cannot afford to pay fancy fancy prices for fuel. No one grudges the miner good wages and shorter hours, but it is unfortunately only too true that as his wages advance, his productive capacity diminishes. This is not credit- able to the miner who seems to have adopted for his policy the pernicious principle of "take it easy."
Sporting Gossip — 10 —— CRICKET. LLANELLY V. SWANSEA. These old rivals met at Swansea on Saturday, and the game, which proved to be of the most exciting nature, ended in a win for Swansea, the scores being:— Llanelly 150, Swansea 167 for 9 wickets. Llanelly batted first, and met with early disaster, both Percy Rees and Will Davies being out to Creber's bowling when only 17 runs had been registered. W. P. Williams and Hubert John soon put a different complexion on the game, taking the score to 59, before John was caught behind the wicket by Billings after he had knocked up 16. After Wil- liams, who had scored 48, was dismissed by Tait, none of the remaining Llanelly players gave much trouble with the ex- ception of the two last-wicket men, H. E. Jones and Fred Williams, who man- aged to bring Llanelly's score to 150, both men scoring 19,Williams being "not out." Swansea commenced operations with Tait and Baxter. Baxter was clean bowled by Martin Davies in his first over, but not before he had hit two 4's. W. J Bancroft, senr., a fter scoring 14 was bowled by Dai Davies, whilst E. A. Billings who came next was caught first ball off the same bowler. Soon after- wards Tait was given out lbw to D. Davies. The score now stood at 65, 39 of which had been compiled by Tait. J. D. Davies, who was next in, made a useful 15 before being bowled by Dai Davies. During the next wicket stand there was a little "incident." A delivery to W. R. Thomas went to the wicket off his pads, and W. Davies, the stumper, claimed Thomas out, but the umpire. who, it is believed, made a palpable mis- take. decided otherwise; whereupon Davies threw one of his gloves to the ground, but carried on with the game after being spoken to by the other play- ers. Bancroft, junr., Ellis and Prichard all got ipto double figures and Swansea's score was carried to 167, Creber not ha'v- ing batted. Comments. To the keen followers of the game at Llanelly it came as a welcome surprise to know of the magnificent fight made at St. Helens. The Swansea, men, for the most part, are well seasoned cricketers, but the young members of the Llanelly team acquitted themselves very credit- ably. j First mention .should again be made of Dai Davies' capital bowling, his average being 8 wickets for 51, which was a not- able performance, having regard to the state of the pitch and the opposition provided. Of the batsmen, W. P. Williams, Fred Williams, H. E. Jones, and Hubert John did best, the first named batting in excellent style for his well made 48, which included nine 41,4, On the Swansea side the three Ban- crofts contributed a big share to the total, "W. J." (senr.) making 14, "W. J." (j unr.) and Fred 24. Ellis also knocked up an invaluable 18 at the end of the game. Creber, as usual, reaped his harvest of wickets, capturing 7 for 68. LLANELLY v. CLYDACH. I On Whit-Monday, Clydach made their initial appearance at Stradey, and by the 11 capital fight they made, one feels sure I they wm be welcomed there first. I Llanelly batted first but lost Percy Rees ,(lbw) before a run was scored. W. P Williams again came to the rescue, scoring a .splendid 48, curiously enough, the same score as he made against Swan- sea. Seven wickets down for 87 looked none too rosy for the home team, but the latter batsmen all got into double figures and the total eventually reached 165. ,,Clydach's early batsmen proved a sur- prise packet for Llanelly, S. Williams, E. Davies, and C. Leopod, making 27, 40 and 42 respectively. Unfortunately for the visitors, the tail-end collapsed hope- lessly, and Clydach were dispsed of for 160. runs short of Llanelly. COMMENTS. Llanelly gained their first victory at the expense of Clylach. but it must be ad- mitted that the visitors put up a splendid fight. Whereas the Llanelly "tail" gave a lot of trouble, that of Clydach broke down completely, especially before the bowling of Fred Williams, who took five wickets in his last half-dozen overs. In the scoring line W. P. Williams again demonstrated that he is one of our leading batsmen. He has had bad luck on two occasions by falling short of his half-century by only a couple of runs. Martin Davies also did well, contri- buting a fine 34, when things looked none too bright; whilst Griff Rowe car- ried out his bat for 19. SECONDS v. SWANSEA 2nds. The Seconds suffered another reverse on Saturday at Stradey at the hands of Swansea 2nds, the visitors being victors by four wickets and four runs. Jack Richards started well for Llanelly compiling 47, and Jere Griffiths supple- mented this by 21. Later on Yendall and Griff Rowe both gave good exhibi- tion, each scoring 33. The innings ended with a total of 168. With such a respecta ble score it was not expected that the home team would go under, but Jack Bancroft upset all calculations by hitting up a hurricane 76, in half an hour, mostly composed of 4's and 6's. Chiefly owing to his master- ly display, Swansea just managed to get the necessary runs in time, with four wickets in hand. BOWLS. Pare Howard "A" played Cwmdonkin in a league game at Pare Howard on Saturday last, and heavily defeated the visitors, by 55—116 to 61. All the rinks were "up." Rink 1, skipped by the Captain, D. Hinder, beat their opponents after a close game 25-23. Rink 2, with W. Thomas leading wa-s well up, finishing 26—16. Rink 3, Skip Gomer Thomas and, his men gave their opponents no chance, and at the close the score was 42-11, a- big majority of 3 shots. Rink 4, Oliver Russell (skip) did well, he and his men playing their usual steady game and coming out victors by 12 shots, 23-11. j The linal score is a record for Pare Howard league games. The "B" team, in their league game against Pantygwdr (played at Brynmill. Swansea), on Tuesday gave a wonderful show ,and defeated the home team by 5 shots (76-71) after being down for three-fourths of the game. This is the first defeat this season for Pantygwdr. A number of the club supporters went with the "B's" and were naturally well pleased with the result. A large crowd of Swanseaites from the local greens were present, and were much surprised at the keenness of the bowling of the visi- tors. Pantygwdr were leading at the '5th, 10th and 15th ends, but at the 21st and final end, they were behind by five shots.

I SWISS VALLEY. I To the kditor of the "Star." I Mr, I was glad to read your protest in last week's "Star" against the continued closing of Swiss Valley to the public. We put up with this, as well as a good many other things, during the war, but surely, the time has now come to relax the ridiculous restriction by which this beautiful resort is forbidden ground. It was pitiful during the glorious Whitsun holidays to see so many people who had arranged for picnics finding access to Swiss Valley barred to them. It is to be hoped that the Waterworks Committee will meet immediately and decide to abolish all restrictions affecting the rights of the public to this one of our not too numerous beauty spots. I am, etc., Llanelly, CONSTANT READER. June 11th, 1919.

I Helping the Poor RELIEF CASES BEFORE THE GUARDIANS. At the meeting of the Board of Guar- dians on Thursday, a number of applica- tions for relief were dealt with. I Husband gone away.

She owned a freehold house. The Chairman: She should get tho money from her husband. R.O. White: He has gone away. It was decided to leave the case in the hands of the Relieving Officer.

An Infirmary Case* An application was received from the father of a young man 18 years of age, for the admittance of his son to the in- firmary.

The Chairman (Mr. W. Y. Nevill) I think the father should contribute to- wards his maintenance in the infirmary. Mr. Gwilym Jones I think we should assist this case as it is an exceptional cne. The parents have been penalized enough in the past, as the son might have been earning good money if he was alright. I move that no charge be made. Mr. David Evans seconded, and it was carried unanimously.
| Faithful Service Rewarded. PRESENTATION TO LOCAL SECRETARY. j Mr. Rex Vivian continues to win fame in Friendly Society circles for his notable work in connection with the Merthyr Unity of Philanthropic Institution.
