NOTES OF THE DAY
NOTES OF THE DAY From our London Correspondent. PRIME MINISTER'S HOMECOMING. THE Prime Minister received a tre- mendous welcome from the people of London on his return from the Peace Conference last Sunday evening; and on the following Monday he was the object of an enthusiastic ovation unprecedented in the history of the House of Commons. He bore himself very modestly on both occasions. After his Herculean labours in a momentous conference charged with the solemn and terrible duty of shaping the future destinies of the world, he de- serves the gratitude of his country. He ha.s laboured hard, has spent himself without stint, and has devoted himself body and soul to the promotion of the interests, as he conceived them, of the United Kingdom and of the British Em- pire. The peace negotiations made heavy drafts on his physical strength and his nervous energy. 1 When he faced the House of Commons on Monday he looked ? shattered man. Like Gladstone he has marvellous recuperative power and when he re-appeared on Thursday to deliver his eagerly-anticipated speech on the Peace Treaty he looked sprightlier and more vigorous; but nearly all the old. buoyancy is gene. He has aged percep- tibly in the past seven months. The hair i • whiter and scantier; the eyes have lost much of their former lustre; the face is gaunt, careworn, deeply furrowed; the poise and carriage of the body are no longer alert and elastic. Lloyd George in a word is past his physical prime. A DEXTEROUS SPEECH. HIS speech on the Peace treaty with •* Germany was dexterous, but it was not big in conception, or noble in tem- per. Not once did he rise to the moun- tain-top surveying with calm wisdom the past and the present, and looking with the eye of a prophet to the future. Throughout he kept on the low-lands; the vision was narrow and contracted; the tone, thoroughly materialistic. It struck me as the speech of a politician not that of a statesman. That spiritual essence which used to be a distinctive quality of Lloyd George oratory had vanished. Nor was there in it a trace of idealism. Paris, with its very secular temper, its hardness and coldness, has almost paganized him. FRENCH FEARS. I BOTH President Wilson and Mr. Lloyd George have been profoundly affected by the atmosphere of the French capital. It is a great misfortune that the feace Conference should have met in Paris. France has suffered so grievously ili the war; the German menace is so ever-present to her vision that she is un able to take a cool and rational view of the situation. Her sufferings and her fears for the future have deeply in- fluenced Wilson and Lloyd George. The result is that France has imposed her will on the peace conference; and that the peace is one of violence. It is a peace dictated by hatred and fear;—a peace that gives France a precarious military hedgemony in Europe and sows with un- sparing hand the seeds of future trouble. The generous hope that the League of Nations would inaugurate a new world- Order in which the nations would dwell in amity, has not been realized. League ()f Nations ? "Yes," says France, "a beautiful dream; but meanwhile Ger- many has nearly 70,000,000 people, and we have only 40,000,000; we subscribe to the League, but we insist as a condition- precedent that Britain and America must guarantee to come to our assist- ance if Germany makes a wanton attack upon us." "THE TERRIBLE TERMS." I THAT attitude reveals in a flash the spirit in which the Peace treaty was made. It is a totally wrong spirit. No one advocated that Germany should "go scot-free, after her appalling crimes. Heavy penalties ought to be imposed on lier. Misguided by her militarists she became the enemy of the human race and the author of the most horrible catas- trophe in the records of history. But some avenue of hope should have been left open to her, some chance to bring forth fruits meet for repentance. Alas, the "terrible terms," as Lloyd George .called them, will only leave her to brood over her injuries and breed the spirit of -"revenge. A Germany that had cast off her despot and become a real democracy deserved better treatment. Was it not Mr. Lloyd George who said that we were 1- warring with that accursed gang the ex- Kaiser and bis military cabal not with the German people ? Was it not Presi- dent Wilson who said that the Allies had no quarrel with the German people, but only with a despotic and militarized autocracy incapable of honour or of covenanted faith ? | WAR'S BITTER FRUIT. I I WELL, the peace is now made, and we must abide by it. Its authors evidently don't believe in its permanence, otherwise France would not make such frantic appeals for British and American guarantees of help to her for the future. It is a peace that will not relieve Europe frcm the menace of war. Germany has been demilitarized. Thank God for it. But France and Italy remain armed to the teeth, though neither is able to bear the financial strain of conscription; civil war is raging in Russia; and Great Britain is burdened with the weight of i gigantic military establishments. Such is the bitter fruit of the war that was to end war. Is it any wonder that Labour is restive and half-rebellious ? The old governing classes made the war; they had a precious opportunity at the Peace Conference of noble atonement by mak- ing a peace of reconciliation. They failed to take it. The failure will cost them dear. An angry and disillusioned democracy is already hammering at the door.

Works Presentation I MR. AND MRS. E. P. LEWIS CELE- BRATE THEIR SILVER WEDDING. Mi-. and Mrs. E. P. Lewis have just celebrated their silver wedding and have received the congratulations of their numerous friends on so auspicious an anniversary. The employees of the South Wales Works, however, where Mr Lewis is the esteemed manager, decided to mark the event in more tangible fashion, and on Saturday, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis were their guests at an enthusias- tone of the gathering was most cordial, tic meeting at the St. Peter's Hall. The affording eloquent testimony—if it were needed—of the happy relationship that exists between employers and employed at these well-known works. The chair was occupied by Mr. H. Parry, of the tinplate department, who referred in felicitous terms to the re- spect in which Mr. Lewis was held by all sections of the employees. He also paid a graceful tribute to their mana- ger's "better half." Amid loud applause, Mrs. Jayne and Mrs. Palmer then handed to Mrs. Lewis from the ladies' committee of the Joint War Relief Fund a silver asparagus dish while Mr. John Williams, Vittoria street, presented Mr. Lewis with a solid silver tea and coffee service. Mr. Lewis returns thanks. I On rising to return thanks, Mr. E. P. Lewis came in for a great ovation. It was difficult for him, he said, to give adequate expression to his feelings on such an occasion. He had been deeply moved by the kindly thought that prompted them to honour his wife and himself that night. The presentation of such magnificent gifts had touched him keenly, realizing as he did that behind the gifts, and of course, far more pre- cious, was the goodwill and esteem of his friends at the works. Besides, he could not put forward any claim to such consideration, because in all his rel a- tions with employers and employed, he had only done his duty. "The thirteen years I have spent in Llanelly," he continued, "have been the happiest ones in my life. When I came here I found everybody so helpful, thoughtful and kind, that though a stranger in a strange land, I was confi- dent that the kind hearts at Richard Thomas and Co., Ltd., would soon put me at ease, and would help me to hap- piness by their hearty co-operation and sympathetic assistance, and I must say I was not disappointed. I have attempt- ed throughout to return sympathy for sympathy, help for help, and thought- fulness for thoughtfulness, doing that which I considered to be just and fair, and following the dictates of my con- science in all things. Like everyone else, I have made mistakes, but such mis- takes have been overlooked by all with a forbearance such as that which in- spired the poet who wrote, "To err is human, to forgive divine." What the future holds out no one can tell, but I sincerely hope that the bonds of mutual trust and good fellowship will be con- tinued throughout. Though Peace was signed to-day, we must not delude our- selves that we have come to our jour- ney's end; the way is etill fraught with peril and danger, and until the unrest throughout the world is settled, we must go on as we have in the past, working hand in hand with the same common in- terest, and with unceasing efforts. Peace promises plenty, but the fruits are now in an early stage of growth, and it is our duty to shield them from the wrecking winds of discord and from the destroy- ing blight of political strife." During the evening a very fine musi- cal programme was gone through, which was as follows :—Pianoforte solo, Miss May Davies; solo, Miss Maggie Davies; solo, Mr. T. H. Harry; duet, Misses Maggie Davies and S. A. Jinos; silo, Mr W. G. Saunders; recitation, Mr. Tal J Evans; solo, Miss S. A. Jones; solo, Mr Haydn Henshaw; duet, Messrs. Harry j and Saunders. The accompanist was j Mrs. R. J. Jones, Stepney place. j The Chairman then moved a vote of thinks which Mr. Owen Jones seconded, to the artistes and accompanist for the admirable manner in which they had ac- ,i,'?m i ra b le ma qnitted themselves. Councillor Evan Roberts proposed a vote, of thanks to the Chairman for the able way in which he carried out his duties, and Mr. G. H. Stacey seconded. A very enjoyable evening was brought to close by the singing of "God Save the K;ng." Mr. J. Anthony acted as secre- tary of the committee which organised the presentation.

I Theft of £ 154
I Theft of £ 154 I GIRL STEALS HER FATHER'S MONEY. A sixteen year old girl named Winnie James, 9 Luton terrace, Furnace, was charged at the Police Court this morn- ing with stealing a cash box containing £ 154 10s., the property of her father. Mr. Leslie Willi airs represented the defendant. *• John James, father of the defendant, stated that for the last six months his daughter had been living with him. He had a cash box in a drawer upstairs con- taining about £150. Oh the 27th of June he went up tolook for the box and found it had gone. He consequently gave information to the police. He did not wish to press the case and was willing to give her (the defendant) another chance. Det. Tom Davies stated that on the 4th inst. he received the defendant into custody from the Gorseinon Police. He received the followng property: one cash box, 129 £ 1 Treasury notes, 3 £5.notes, £ 1 10s. gold, and 3s. in silver. He charged her with stealing zCl54, the pro- j perty of her father. She replied "I took the cash box with the money. I only thought of taking a few notes and re- turning the box the following morning. The reason I took the money was I wanted to go away and could not agree with my sisters. I hope my father will give me a chance and put me in a shop so that I could come home every night. I have not spent much of the money,but have bought some clothing for myself." Mr. Leslie Williams: You recovered all the money except £5 14s. lid.—Yes. Defendant pleaded guilty. I The Pres. Mag. (Mr. Wm. David) to the defendant: We have heard the case. and in spite of all the favour we would like to show you we must take a very serious view of it. The -sum of money at stake is very large, but your solicitor has pleaded hard for you. On condition that you go to a home we are prepared to dismiss the case, but you will be bound over to be of good behaviur for 12 months, and must ant ver judgment if called up. Your fathedwill also have to act as surety in the sum of 925. Addressing the father of the defendant the Presiding Magistrate reprimanded him for placing the temptation in the way of his daughter. The country is in dire nded of money at the present time, and yet you keep allthis money in a box. You should put it in the bank or invest it in the new Victory Loan where you will obtain substantial interest on it.

Trade Menace *
Trade Menace I NEED FOR ECONOMICAL PRODUC- TION. ———— A meeting of the Steel Trades Concilia- tion Board was held at Swansea on Thursday, when the South Wales Siemens j Steel Association met representatives of the Steel Confederation to discuss wages and conditions for the coming year. Mr. Frank Gilbertson presided, and Mr Tom Griffiths, M.P., presided over the men's section. ￼ The men submitted a large number of j claims for increased wages and the Chair- man, in saying how impossible it was to concede increases at such times as these, pointed out how serious wa-s the outlook of the trade, and how grave the position was becoming in view of American and German competition. The Americans since 1913 had obtained an increased output equal to the whole of the German pre-war trade. There were serious times in front of British manufacturers, which could only be met by economical pro- duction. After a long sitting the conference ad- journed till Monday.

- Cyclist's Narrow Escape…
Cyclist's Narrow Escape i 6 What might have been a serious acci- dent occurred yesterday evening near the Stepney Hotel it appears thav a young man, riding a bicycle, was about to cross from Water street to Upper Water street, when a motor car belonging to Mr W. T. Morris, the Ladies' Realm, was ( proceeding in the direction of Swansea road from Stepney street. The cyclist evidently tried to cross the road before the car came along, and in doing so, his machine was struck by the motor. The man had a miraculous escape from severe injury, his leg only being affected. He I was afterwards removed to Dr. George Davies' surgery. t

RECEPTION FOR BURRY PORT BOYS I The War Funds Committee had the privilege on Tuesday evening of extend- ing a real Burry Port and Pembrey wel- come to another batch of soldiers who, having done their duty during the war, are now settled down at home again. The proceedings were organised on similar lines to those which made the February reception so successful, and a happy time was spent by all. Too much praise cannot be bestowed on the ladies' committee the members of which had made ample preparations for the occa- sion. The tables at the Parish Hall were most artistically arranged and they liter- ally groaned under a load of good things calculated to appeal to the inner man. There were in all nearly 80 guests, who after grace, they promptly put the "vanishing trick" into operation and made short work of the tempting dain- ties so thoughtfully provided by the ladies.
