THE TRADE OUTLOOK. I NO one can close his eyes to the fact that the immediate outlook for local industries is none too cheerful. At a time when our staple trades—tinplates and steel-have not had an opportunity of adapting themselves to peace condi- tions, they arc threatened with formid- able competition from more than one quarter. The war played havoc with the I tinplate trade and brought about the summary closing down of more than half the Welsh mills. Now that the tinplaters have been released from the Army and the employers are anxious to restart the idle mills, they are faced with the unpleasant fact that America is making a tremen- dous effort to capture our markets, and has already succeeded in diverting a large volume of trade which in pre-war days kept the Welsh mills busy. While mills in Wales, owing to war exigencies, were being closed down, the Americans were building new mills, the result being that at present, they arc in a better position than ever to inflict serious injury upon tho Welsh industry. Information to hand this week goes to show that American plates are being offered at prices with which local manufacturers will find it very difficult to compete. The same re- mark applies to steel bars where the dif- ference in price in favour of the United States is even more marked. These are very serious factors in our present indus- trial position, and the combined efforts of employers and workmen will be re- quired to cope with it.
UNFAIR TO LLANELLY. I
UNFAIR TO LLANELLY. I MR. OWEN JONES initiated a very useful discussion at the Harbour Trust on Monday on the unfair incidence of local railway rates. There can be no doubt that some of .these rates work out unfavourably to the port. Indeed they seem to have been drawn up for the bene- fit of Swansea at the expense of Llanelly. Without making any extravagant claims for the North Dock, we have every right to expect that local coal should be shipped here instead of being railed to Swansea for shipment. Recently a deputation from the Harbour Trust waited on the G.W.R. authorities in Swansea and pointed out how unfairly Llanelly was treated by pre- ferential rates fixed in favour of other ports in the Bristol Channel. Burry Port is also handicapped in the same way. To the average man, it must for ever remain a mystery why coal should be brought down by rail to Llanelly and Burry Port and instead of being shipped at these ports, sent on a twelve miles railway journey to .Swansea. This diversion of trade has been our grievance for many years and if the Harbour Trust can devise means whereby it can be recovered, the ..success of the North Dock will be assured. The dock was built to deal with the out- put of local collieries, but most of that coal, unfortunately, continues to find its way to Swansea. EMPLOYERS AND WORKMEN. I NOTHING is more hopeful as a sign of the times than to see employers of labour displaying a real and practical in- terest in the well being of those in their employ. We referred recently to the wel- fare movement initiated by Messrs. Richard Thomas and Co. and the forma- tion of a Sports Club for the benefit of the youths engaged at their local works. This has now been followed up by a gener- ous action on the part of the firm which will be deeply appreciated not only by the workpeople but by the town as a whole. Mr. Bond made the gratifying announce- ment on Saturday that the Company had purchased the disused Brewery near the Station and proposed to convert it into a gymnastic institute. It is intended to erect and equip a gymnasium here and swimming baths are also to be provided. This notable enterprise is one upon which Messrs. Richard Thomas and Co. are to be congratulated. The average trading Company, we are often reminded cares nothing for its employees and is content to regard them as mere dividend earners. No doubt this reproach can be urged with truth against many industrial combina- tions and it accounts for much of the labour unrest of to-day. What a pity I some of the Welsh coalowners did not have sufficient vision and generosity to do twenty years ago what Messrs. Richard Thomas and Co. are now doing ? While they were growing rich, they gave no thought to their workmen condemned to live in hovels and denied the ordinary | decencies and amenities of life.
Boys Sports Club
Boys Sports Club SUCCESSFUL ATHLETIC EVENT. I In connection with the Richard Thomas and Co. Boy Sports Club, a most success- ful athletic meeting was held on Satur- day. This club has only recently been formed for the benefit of the young people in the employ of the firm and a capita] ground has been secured off Beach road. The sports aroused widespread interest, and there was a capital entry for all the events. Indeed so many names were sent in that several of the heats had to be run off on Friday evening. The arrangements wero admirable, everything passing off without a hitch. The credit for this be- longs to Mr. P. Audley Brown, the wel- fare superintendent, who was assisted by the following officials :— Judges:—Messrs. E. P. Lewis, T. O. Lewis, Arthur Roberts, F. W. Jayne, E. Roberts and David Newman; Time- keepers Messrs. David Jones, Enoch Jones, W. H. Parry; Starters: Messrs. Haydn Edwards, Tom Burgum, and T. W. Raikes; Referee: Mr. P. Audley Brown. In addition to these named above there was a large number of foremen and others who ably performed the respective duties of competitors, course and ground stewards. All these officials, together with the Boys' Committee, were easily distinguishable by their various rosettes. But "distinctions" there were none. Managers, foremen, men and boys—to say nothing of the fairer sex-all vied with each other to make the day a success for the Boys' Sports Club; and the clan- nish feeling of the gathering, on an out- sider at all events, must have made a profound impression.

At the conclusion of the sports, the winners ot ii-bich are to be congratulated on some quite excellent performances, Mr H. C. Bond, accompanied by Mr. Audtey Brown, mounted the platform in the official's enclosure to present the prizes. In a short speech before the presentation. Mr. Bond expressed his great pleasure at being able to be present that day. He thought that, all things considered, the ground was in surprisingly good condition and did great credit to Mr. Brown and his assistant. Referring to the general scheme of welfare, he said he was glad to be able to state that the Company had purchased Bythway's Brewery (loud ap- plause), which they proposed to convert into an institute as soon as possible. After the prize-giving, Mr. Brown said he would like to take that opportunity of thanking all those who had given himself and Mr. Edwards, his assistant, such in- a aluable help—not only on that day, but also on many other occasions since the formation of the Boys' Sports Club. He concluded by calling for "three cheers" for Mr. Bond, who, as he explained, had come a long journey at great personal in- convenience in order to attend the sports and present the prizes which lie had so generously provided. The cheers which followed left no room for doubt but that Mr. Bond's generosity was fully appre- ciated. During the afternoon the Llanelly Federation Silver Band went through an enjoyable programme.

Spi-I t ?"' no f)?)ssip CRICKET. LLANELLY v. LLANDOVERY COLLEpE. This old-time fixture was revived last Saturday, and the result, a victory for Llanelly, was not unexpected. The College, who batted first, were all out for 74, the great majority being powerless against the onslaught of Dai Davies. The commencement was promising enough. Pritchard and P Thomas putting on 20 for the first wicket before the former was bowled by Dai Davies. From then Davies carried all before him until the arrival of the last man, Reed. Nine wickets had been taken for 46, but Reed, in partnership with P. Thomas, who was still "holding the fort," managed to keep the tail wagging for a while, the Llan- dovery score eventually reaching 74, at which point Thomas was out to Fred Williams. Thomas was the first man in and last out, contributing a painstaking 27, whilst Reed had made 21. On Llanelly going to the crease, Percy Roes and Will Davies, who opened their innings played havoc with the very weak howling of the College, and made short work of their opponents' total. Percy Rees was not dismissed until 163 runs had been registered, his share being v, masterly 74. Will Davies, however, con- tinued to "live" for a long while, but at last was smartly stumped by Breese, after he had knocked up a splendid 107. The School bow lers then enjoyed some measure of success, seven wickets being down for 222, when time was called, leaving the Llanelly men victors by the big margin of three wickets and 148 runs. COMMENTS. Although weakly represented, Llanelly proved far too strong for the home team. Of course, the outstanding feature of the day's play was the brilliant century re- corded' by the veteran Will Davies. It was a lovely bit of play, and "Will" en- joys the satisfaction of having scored the first century of the season., He clearly demonstrated that there are still plenty of runs left in him. Percy Rees also gave the spectators a glimpse of his old form in his finely j played 74. The third top scorer was Martin Davies. Although his bowling has been somewhat disappointing lately, his batting has undergone a marked improvement, and on Saturday he contributed 19 in taking style The only other man to get into double figures was A. Yendell, who "chipped in" with 11 towards the close. In the bowling line, Dai Davies proved altogether too big a proposition for the Collegians to tackle, with the result that he captured no fewer than nine wickets for 28, Fred Williams taking the remain- ing one at a, cost of five runs. For the College the most successful bowler was J. Llewellyn, who averaged 4. for 73. Mention should also be made of the very safe wicket-deeping of Breese, who did not give a single bye away. LLANELLY 2nds Y. COWERTON. I Llanelly 2nds entertained Gowerton at Stradey on Saturday in ideal weather, and suffered their third successive defeat on the tliird successive. Saturday. Winning tho toss, the Llanelly men had first use of the wicket, and sent in Jack Rees and Jack Richards to face the bowl- ing of Tom Morgans and Ben Davies. Rees was not destined for a long stay, being easily caught at "short leg" before opening his account. Turnstall looked like causing trouble for the bowlers, but through a badly judged "call," he was run out, after compiling only 8. Griff Rowo assisted Richards to carry the score to 60, before he was clean bowled after hitting up 25. Jack Richards, mean- while, continued hitting about him with no uncertain vigour. Only three wickets down for 71 looked rather promising for Llanelly, and a big total seemed probable at this stage of the game, but after Richards, who had made 36, was dismissed by a catch, a complete rot set in, the last six wickets beinz bundled out for an addition of only 18 runs. Thus the whole side was disposed of for 89. 1 0 On Gowerton going to the wicket, the weakness of the Seconds' attack soon became only too evident, and the visitors' early batsmen appeared to do their scoring without much difficulty. Tom Morgans and B. Davies opened their innings, but Morgans did not make a long stay, being caught out after making 7. Davies, however, began to settle down and make things hum, and after he was partnered by E. Davies at third wicket down, runs came at an ever increasing rate, with the result that the Llanelly score was soon passed. In fact, 108 had been knocked up when only three wickets had fallen. The visitors' total eventually reached 145 for nine wickets. COMMENTS. Unfortunately for the home team, they were very much weakened owing to some of their players being called upon to assist the premiers at Llandovery. The batting of the home men, with two or three exceptions was noticeably weak. Richards, who is fast developing into a very useful first wicket batsman, again made the top score on his side. The Llanelly men were too intensely eager to score, and this aooounted for the fact that two were hopelessly run out, j and many others had very narrow ee- I capes from the same fate. Of the bowlers, D. Hamilton Davies was easily the most effective, capturing seven wickets for 34 runs. The fielding of the Gowerton men was much keener than that of Llanelly.

f.r. j s F ￼ t- ￼ H? ?s Fat- Acci?e? A., INJURED WHILE DELIVERING COAL I Mr v\ Brodie conducted an inquest at Capel Als Schoolroom on the body of David Davies, 45, Mansel street, who died at the hospital as the result of an accident sustained whilst following his employment as a haulier. Margaret Jones, a nurse at the Hospi- tal, said that deceased, who was 68 years of age, was her uncle. He told witness that the accident occurred when he was taking off the back of a cart whilst de- li vering coal. David Thomas, 18, Palace Avenue, stated that deceased brought a load of coal to his house on June 11th. Deceased proceeded to undo the back of the cart; the first bolt came out easily, but the second one gave trouble. Deceased then picked up a lump of coal to knock it out, and afterwards asked for a hammer. Wit- ness went to fetch him one, but when he returned the bolt had just been knocked out. The door now slipped, owing to the pressure of coal in the cart, and the UDDer J — _r £ part of it struck deceased in the abdomen. Deceased soon became restless, and started groaning. Dr. Sam Williams was sent for, and he took deceased to the hospital. Witness added that the affair was a pure accident. Dr. Sam Williams said that when he examined deceased he was suffering froJIl shock, but there was nothing to suggest necessity for surgical interference. The cause of death was shock, the result of the blow on the abdomen, accelerated by a dilated heart. The jury returned a verdict of "Acci- dental death."

Juvenile Offenders. —a—
Juvenile Offenders. — a — I BATCH OF BOYS IN TROUBLE. Desmond Pound, Brynallt terrace, and Harry Emlyn James, 8, Glanmor road, were charged at the Juvenile Police Court on Thursday with stealing a bicycle pedal value 2d., the property of the Llan- elly Harbour Trust. P.C. 108 stated that he saw the defend- ants in a truck at the North Dock, which contained scrap iron. He saw the de- fendant Pound hand his companion ai bicycle pedal. The defendants when they saw him ran away. The father of the defendant Pound said he was s-orry that his boy was brought to Court. "My boy informs me that them are boys running about the dock with German helmets. Why are these boys not charged ? Supt. Jones: If you will give-us their names we shall have great pleasure in bringing them here. The defendants were dismissed with a caution. I- THEFT OF RODS. Maurice Pope, 11, Vittoria street, was charged with 'stelirlg two steel rods, value 6d., the property of the Llanelly Harbour Trust. A constable stated that he saw the de- fendant running away from a scrap-heap at the North Dock with two stcel rods hidden under his coat. The Harbour Superintendent (Mr. Winterbottom) stated that he heard the boy say when he was caught that he was taking them home to repair a mangle. The father of the defendant stated that the boy did not intend stealing them. The Deputy Clerk (Mr. Walton) The boy is old enough to know that taking away other people's property is stealing. The defendant was ordered to pay costs. I DAMAGING TREES. Frederick Samuel, 9, Spring Gardens, Jack Lewis, 12, Spring Gardens, David Hopkins, 7, King's Square, and Ivor Morgan and Emrys Morgan, King's, Square, were charged with committing, wilful damage to a tree to the extent of 6d., the property of Mr. Mansel Lewis. P.S. Tom Davies stated that on Sunday last, accompanied by the farm bailiff of the Stradey Estate he saw the defendants cutting branches from a tree. When they saw him they all ran away. The mother of one of the defendants stated that she had six children to keep, her husband having gone away with an- other woman. She had kept the home going daring the time her husband was away in the Army, and when he was de- mobilized he left her. The father of the defendant Samuel said it was a shame that little boys should be charged with committing damage to the extent of 6d. He had been around the district and haS seen young lovers that were "courting" cut- ting if much flowers as they wished, and nobody interefered. The case was dismissed. NO REAR LIGHT. Harold Williams, 3, Richard street, was charged with driving a wagganette in Station road without a rear light. Defendant pleaded not guilty and stated that the rear lamp was lit in New Dock road, but when the constable called his attention to it, it had gone out. Supt. Jones: How do you account for the lamp going out then ? Defendant: I think a "jerk" of the waggon put it out. < Defendant was fined 2s. 6d. THEFT OF COAL. Wm. Henry Griffiths, Globe row, was charged with stealing a quantity of coal from the South Whales Works, value 4d. A constable .stated that on the 30th ult. he saw the defendant packing coaT near the furnaces at the South Wales Works, which he placed in a sack and carried away. When he saw him he (the defend- ant) ran away. I The mother of the defendant stated nhe did rot send him for the coal. She had a family of ten, one of the boys was working, but her husband was out of work. A number of previous convictions ngainst defendant for larceny were re- ported. A fine of 5s. was imposed. I GIVING HIM A "HOnK" I Albert James, 5, Globe row, was charged with committing wilful damnge to an electric switch to the extent of 3s., the property of Messrs. Richard Thomas and Co. Defendant stated that he went to switch the light on and while doing so some other boys had connected a cable to the switch so that he should have a "shock." He denied that the damage done was committed wilfully. Supt. Jones reported previous convic- tions against the defendant, and stated he was a. very wicked boy. Presiding Magistrate (Mr. R. Guest) Your past record is a very bad one and you will have to pay a fine of 10s. and costs. Another youth named Haydon Rees, 22, Well field terrace, was also charged with damaging an electric lamp at the South Wales Works, and was fined 5s. and costs.
