NOTES Of THE DAY
NOTES Of THE DAY From our l.omfca Correspondent. MEMORABLE SCENES IN JLONDON. LONDON has never seen a more beauti- JLj ful and impressive spectacle than the anarch of the troops of the victorious Allios through the streets of the metro- polis last Saturday. Marshal Foch, seated like a carven image on his spirited -horse, was the central figure of the pro- fession. He had a wonderful welcome. It was the salute of a nation to one of the greatest of miliary captains, a man whose name will rank in history as co- equal with these of Julius Caesar and Napoleon. In addition to being great warriors Caesar and Napoleon shewed supreme ability as statesmen and civil administrators. Foch had no opportu- nity to reveal his capacity in these direc- tions. But as a soldier pure and simple he is fit to stand alongside his two famous Latin fore-runners. MARSHAL FOCH. I PHYSICALLY Foch is a small man, "—- but he is firmly built and well-set. It is an arresting face, full of intellectual power, with large, heavily-fringed, lust- rous eyes whose fire gives a radiance to the whole expression. For all the light that glances from them, they are sad eyes that speak of thought and suffering and experience. The impression conveyed by Foch in the victory march was not that of the exultant victor, but rather that of the humble instrument of an over-ruling Providence. In his demeanour a proud ,consciousness of strength mingled strangely with an air of piety and modes- ty. If Foch had not been a great soldier he would have been a great saint. His only brother is a Jesuit and he himself is a devout Catholic. What I wonder were the thoughts that occupied the mind of this great and lonely figure as he rodo -through acclaiming multitudes in a foreign capital ? Looking neither to right nor left, he kept his eyes steadily ;in front as though he were gazing into futurity, eager to unveil its secrets. Emphatically lie was the man of men in 'the wonderful pageant. The recollection -of that lonely horseman, -with his ab I' stracted air and rigid mien, unmoved by the tempests of cheering that greeted him all along the route, will never be I effaced from the memory of those who witnessed his triumphal progress. BEATTY AND HAIC. I "NEXT to Foch, the most popular figures v, ore those of Sir David Beatty and Sir Douglas Haig. In aooord with naval tradition Beatty was afo-ot,- a fine figure of a man, the cap at its usual rakish angle, air and bearing sug- gesting the very incarnation of manly vigour and efficiency. Beatty's handsome features were s t?rn and set and he seemed as indifferent lo popular acclamation cs "Foch did. Hai, ca his beautiful charger, 'was little more genial, and from time to time acknowledged by a stiff salute the 'homage of the crowd. Both Beatty and Haig are dignified-looking men, but | neither conveys the impression of tre- 'mendous personality that is suggested by I "Foch, about whom the glamour of genius visibly clings. I OUR CALLANT SEAMEN. I THE heart of the crowd went out to the least spectacular part of the "procession. These were the -merchant seamen, led by a score of solemn-looking weather-beaten captains. The sailors themselves were much more buoyant, cracked jokes with the crowd, and marched with a careless ease that was a ,striking contrast to the measured tread ;and mechanical precision of the infantry. lClad in mufti in every variety of garb fthese gallant men, with the savour of the ,Eftlt.se,t waves about them. well deserved -the gratitude of the people. Easily the ¡ flnost attractive feature in the procession ,were the women,-nur-,e,,q V.A.D. e, W.A.A.C's, W.R.E.N.S. and W.R.A.F's. 5t was a progress of young ">na blooming womanhood, full of hope and promise for -the future The pick of the 'ct were the young women of the Royal A ir Force, who -marched with a dash and rog«' larity that won universal .admiration. How the -crowd6 cheered .them A SKELETON AT THE FFAST. IN the juaidst of fljl these joyful demon- Jt. strations reflective minds were .acutely conscious of the of a fikejoton at the feast in the shape of a .dusky figure, with pick or N.nlder and eafety lamp in hand. We bave won the war-; can we conserve the 'its of vic- tory and win the peace ? That Is the question. For its solution mwoh depends on the working-classed, and ''specially on the miners. It is hardly tc rr -ch to say that on the miners the r f rC! of this CO'lltry largely depends. '1Ti.s week the j situation has 'been very grave and dark clouds still obscure the sky. The most urgen t economic need of Britain is an in- crease of exports. Unfortunately our exports sre declining; and owing to the increase In the price of coal the decline is likely to continue. If, in addition, the miners mean to strike the position will becoEDe very alarming. Already the American exchange is heavily against u&. An English sovereign will now only buy 17s. 6d. worth of goods in America. This means that everything which we import from America must increase in price; and the increase will continue unless our ex- port trade expands. How can it expand when Labour is wild, intractable, rebel- lious ?
IWOMEN POLICE NOT WANTED.
I WOMEN POLICE NOT WANTED. Women's organizations in London are interested in the point of view of the Chief-con stable of Carmarthenshire, who, when the question of the appointment of police-women came before the Standing Joint Committee, is reported to have re- commended that the employment of police women was unnecessary. Miss Key Jones, organizing secretary of the Women's Industrial League, gave me (says the London correspondent of the "Mail") the following statement:—"The reason given by the chief-constable against the employment of women," she said, "is that the youth of the town come from a good fighting stock, and that he doubted whether a woman in police uniform would inspire fear or evea* respect. The only comment I make is that his boast about the morality of the town having reached such a high plane, does not seem to be very assuring v; hen at the same time he doubts its stability to ensure respect to a woman in uniform, now so very familiar to the British pub- lic. Nor is it easy profoundly to respect Lis authority if he finds it necessary to squander the interests of other members of the community of Llanelly to the pos- sible prejudice of the fighting youth of the town." :1 1

Water Supply. —..—-
Water Supply. — —- We are asked by the Corporation to again draw attention to the very serious position of the water supply. The rainfall since the 1st April has been very small and the consumption shews a steady increase. For the month of July it averages over five million gallons per day. The consumption for domestic purposes is over icrty gallons per head per day for a population of 45,000. This figure is ne of the largest in the Kingdom, and snculd be reduced to twenty-five gallons per head per day, which would be an ample supply. Unless the weather breaks and there is a very heavy rainfall the Corporation will have no alternative but to cut off the supply fcr industrial purposes and restrict their supply for domestic pur- poses. This will be a very serious matter to hojrsehoiders in the district, and we hope that the utmost eccnomy will be used by every consumer.

The public are requested to make every effort to reduce the present high con- sumption of water, as the quantity avail- able in the Storage Reservoirs is only i sufficient for 30 days' supply at the pre- sent rate of user.

I Bowling Cup - I
I Bowling Cup I WON OUTRIGHT BY MR. STACEY. Under ideal conditions the final round of the Llanelly Bowling Club tournament was played last night at the Goring road green between Mr. A. J. Stacey, holder of the cup for the last two years, and Mr. A. Clark. The game had aroused considerable interest, there being an ex- cellent attendance presefit. Sifter a keen tussle Mr. Stacey again ran out winner by fivo shots, the scores being:— Mr. A. J. Stacey 21 abets. I i Mr. A. Clark 16 shot&. I Mr. Henry Wilkins, J.P., president of the Bowling Club, later in the evening, presented the cup to Mr. Stacey, which now becomes his own property, and in a short and appropriate speech spoke of the all-round athletic prowess of the winner. Mr. Stacey holds an excellent record of successes in "wood-rolling." Last year with winning the local cup he also won the Swansea. Bowling Club cup and the Hope Cup, Llandrindod. This year he has been chosen for the Welsh Inter- national team, and has only just returned from a match at Carlisle.
BANK APPOINTMENT. We are informed that Mr: Turn Roberts, formerly of Lloyds Bank, Llan- elly, has been appointed manager of the Rhymney branch.

Coal Crisis Over
Coal Crisis Over <LytS!s Uvcf I NO REDUCTION IN AfFNIS PAY FOR SHORTER HOURS. Agreement was reached yesterday be- tween the Government and the Miners' Federation. It provides for such in- creases on picoo-rates as will meet, in the aggregate, an average reduction of 47 minutes in the time worked per shift throughout the country. A new formula has been drawn up under which the miners will receive an increase to make up for the actual reduction in their time. These increases are to be fixed by tne district Conciliation Boards. The grave crisis which threatened the country has thus. it is hoped, been averted. In the meantime, it is believed that the railway companies will be able to maintain the normal perviceof trains.

I MILITARY MEDALLIST. At the monthly meeting of the Rural District Council an interesting ceremony took place. Before proceeding with the business cf the meeting, the Chairman (Mr W. Y. Nevill) presented Bombardier Edwin J. Beynon, Ynyshafren, Pont- henry. with a Military Medal awarded for bravery in the field. The Chairman in referring to the bravery of Beynon stated on behalf of the Board that they were proud of the dis- tinction he had won. The Vice-Chairman (Mr. H. W. Thomas). Mr. Joseph Harry. Mr. David Evans, and the Medical Officers also paid a tribute to the Bom bardier. The cir- cumstances under which the medal was awarded are as follows-- "On the 5th October, 1918, on the Somme battlefield, an advance was made by the British Army who reached their objective and dug themselves in. The Germans at the same time opened out a barrage preparatory to launching a a. counter-attack and managed to cut the British lines -of communication. The position was getting serious and no mes- sage could be delivered for support fa consequence of the cutting of the lines. and the officer asked for a volunteer to deliver a despatch at headquarters, which Beynon consented to do and successfully delivered the message under heavy fire just in time for the British Artillerv to bombard the German lines and thus 'pre- vent them from launching their counter- attack and at the same time enabling the British to consolidate their position and hold the ground which they had won.

I IThe Unofficial Ballot.…
The Unofficial Ballot. — To the Editor of the "Star." Sir, Please allow me a. little space, to refer to the action of a small section of tin- platers in trying to stir up mischief at the present time. There is a little clique up the line which does not believe in the Conciliation Board in spite of what it has done for the trade during the last 20 years. They arc nothing but extreme Socialists out to ruin everything to suit their own ends. I am glad to say that we in Llanelly have turned them down and shown that we want to respect the agree- ment come to by our leaders at the last meeting of the Beard. The unofficial strike ballot is laughable-no one will take any notice of it, whatever the figures may be. It does not represent the real voice of the trade, and I hope that every district will join Llanelly in treating it with the contempt that it deserves. I am afraid that there are serious times before us in the tinplate trade and in my opinion the only way to surmount the difficulties of the future is for the masters and the men to act together as they have done since the Joint Board was formed. I heard from an old Llanellyite in Pittsburg' last week that the tinplate. works out there are going strong and he says that whatever price we fix m Wales for tÎJl, the Americans will quote a shilling a box less in prder to secure the trade. It means that we shall have to fncc very keen competition, and how are we to do this if we adopt the policy of unofficial strikes such as the up the line clique want to carry out. d th It is la-oghable to find th ese men try- ing to prevent the joint commission going to America. Most tinplaters believe that a visit to the United States would be a great education to all interested in the trade. Why not send delegates to see if America has something to teach us in their methods. We in Llanelly have every •confidence in our representative, Coun. J. Hughes, and we have presented him with a travelling bag to help him along on his journey. I hope "honest John" will bring it back full of new ideas for the better carrying on of our trade in this country. I am, etc. Lla-.oIJy, J.R. Jiily 24th, 1919.
Essentials of Peace
Essentials of Peace "THE ACHIEVEMENT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS." At the special Peace service held by the Llanelly Hebrew Congregation on Saturday, the Rev. M. J. Feldman spoke on righteousness in every sphere of life as being the great essential of peace. The war ended aright (he said), but the era of peace has been entered upon not. in a spirit of peacefulness hut in that of hostility and unslaked revenge. Once the war was begun, it had to bo won outright. But, it should be added, once victory was achieved on the side of Right, the victors should have been high- minded enough to conclude a peace free from the poisonous elements that breed war. They should have made it their sacred task t6 temper justice—if not with mercy, then, with prudence, with a clear understanding of the inter-dependence of all the nations, and of the consequent im- po-tance of creating an atmosphere of better harmony, freer movement, and closer comradeship so as to obviate the inclination to war. Without Righteousness there can be no real peace. So long as the social life ia not regulated in accordance with the dic- tates of justice, and the rations between one nation and another are inspired or vitiated by malice and trickery, the right kind of peace cannot prevail. The first step, therefore, is to recognize the grand truth: "We are all sons of one Divine Creator," and that, consequently, a spirit of forbearance, of true friendship, and of righteousness should characterize our domestic relations as well as those abroad,

He requested to be re-instated and that the question of hio salary should be considered. The cause of the delay in his application for re-instatement was be- cause he had been applying for a situ- ation in the Town Clerk's office. The Chairman: I take it that the agreement was that his situation would be kept open for him. Mr. D. R. Jones: He should have ap- plied for his situation right, away.

Coal for next Winter. — — I ACTION OF THE BURRY PORT COUNCIL. "I have a very important letter here," stated the Surveyor (Mr. Bull) at a special meeting of the Burry Port Coun- cil on Thursday, before rroding the pon- tents of a letter from the Government regarding the coal shortage. The letter stated that the Government would assist municipal bodies to store a large supply of coal for the coming winter in view of the threatened shortage. The Council would have to reply as as possible a.id state how much coal they required. The Surveyor stated that they would have to obtain a place to store this coal, which he as Fuel Overseer would dis- tribute to the Coal Merchants and dealers. Coal was now rationed, the rationing being 2 cwts. n wk. The Chairman: What is your position <? Coal Overseer ? The Surveyor: I am f puMic benefactor :.cung a? Coal Overspet'. Whether I shall be paid for my services I don't know. The Surveyor in reply to a. question, stated that the best place to store the coa l was in his opinion the White Lead Works, where they could ttore about 50 tons. Mr. W. D. Jenkins: expect the Government are contemplating a coal strike, and are anxious that there shall be a big storage all round the country. It was decided to leave the matter ill the hands of the Surveyor. Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Council.
