I NOTES OF THE DAY
I NOTES OF THE DAY From oar London Correspondent. I From our LondoIJ CurreMpondent. f THE NATION'S FINANCES. A T last the Government is really a larmed about the financial situa- tion the country. The revelation that we are still spending nearly £ 4,500,000 a day staggered the nation; and Ministers themselves now realise that this wild ex- travagance cannot continue. I hear that the Cabinet is giving the matter earnest attention every day and that it has de- cided to reduce expenditure at any cost. Though tardy, this is welcome news. How much better it would have been if the Government had decided upon drastic re- trenchment before the Budget was intro- duced at the end of last April. Instead of that Mr. Churchill was allowed to pre- sent colossal estimates for the Army; his subordinate, General Secly, had the audacity to ak fcr nearly E-0,000,000 for the Air Force; and the Navy estimates— although all Britain's rival fleets have been wiped out—remain monstrously large. The countrv cannot possibly bear ftiese gigantic military burdens. Unless they are reduced ruin stares us in the face. EXAMPLE AND PRECEPT. M R. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN had to confess to the House of Com- Von-, on Thursday tha.t his Budget esti- inate6 for 1919-20 have been too san- guine. It is now certain that the revenue will be less and the expenditure much greater than he anticipated. The Chan- cellor implored ail classes to economize and to increase production. Unless more wealth is produced, and unless expendi- ture, national and individual, is ruth- lessly cut down we shall be in peril of national bankruptcy. This homily on frugality would he more effective if the oxample of the Government were as good as its precept. The nation will believe j in the Government's new professions of economy when the gigantic new depart- ments in Whitehall are scrapped; whcu the host of major. colonels, and generals tlioll quartered on the country are sent back to private life; and when the Army, the Navy and the Air Force are reduced j to a peace level. AN AUDACIOUS PHOPOSAL. I I T is an astonishing revelation of the mentality of this Government that l < in the present state of the national f finances it actually submitted this week to the House of Commons a Bill to in- crease 5 Ministerial salaries from £ 2,000 to £ 5,000 a year. There are limits to human nature, and even this compliant House rose in anger, against this auda- eiorus proposal. Passionate protebs as- sailed Mr Bonar Law from every quarter. "This is not the time to increase salaries even assuming the increases to be just; I you will do infinite harm in the country by persevering this Bill; people will point the finger of scorn at the Govern- ment and its supporters whenever they preach economy if this measure is car- ried" ;—such were the arguments, and there were many more. that were em- ployed against this ill-advised proposal. Mr. Bonar Lav. pleaded in vain for what he called a fair judgment of the Bill. The House remained ilnreconcilecj and he had to bow to the storm by a promise that after the .second reading the Bill I would be held over until the autumn session. This is only a convenient, method of shelving it altogether. I predict that the Bill will remain indefintely on the shelf. What possessed the Government to bring it forward at a time like the pre- gent passes the wit of man. PRIME MINISTER'S SPEECH. T HE Prime -Minister's speech in pro- posing the votes of thanks to the Navy, Arm? and ,<1. f.rrccs tot tneJr ser- -rices during the war did not match the great occasion. v and again it was eloquent; from time to time it was, warmed with a flnsh of genuina emotion; but the speech as a -vhole lacked distinc- tion; there was r,, fineness of thought in it; no nobility of cf-timent; no mar- moreal phrase. In v;* homage to the heroic dead, Mr. T.l^yd George touched a chord of emotion to which the whole House vibrated in sy-mpa hy. Poor Bonar Law, thinking do-hf-Vcs his two gal- i lant sons—one hjliod in Palestine, the J other in Flanders-~p.»ld hardly restrain • his emotion; and other fathers j whom the war hiP- rohV-d of wha.t was dearer to them iL n V, "listened with bowed head, or te* r "-tamed face, or with face concealed by hands. It was a. I poignant moment "roiyrht vividly to j mind what terrib!- nf .res the war has > exacted from rs. ^nd jrrant that the sacrifices have not ■ n in vain

I Gallant Rescue I SPLENDID HEROISM AT LLANELLY. I A very gallant rescue took place on Thursday afternoon, not far from the lighthouse. Whilst the dredger "Lucy," was doing her work, cries of distress wire heard, and a lad was observed to be in difficulties in the water, between the Carmarthenshire and Nevill's Docks. David Matthias, a deck-hand ork hoard the dredger, together with Sid Llewelyn; another member of the crew, immediately jumped into a boat lying alongside and pushed olf. Between the "Lucy" and the drowning boy there was, however, a big bank of mud, which would have necessitated the boat making a detour. This of course would have entailed much loss of time, and possibly the boy would have drowned before he could bo reached. The two men, therefore, with much pre- sence of mind, rowed to the mud-bank, where Mf tthias got out of the boat, and straggled a cross through mud and slime. \ni("h sometimes reached almost to his I waist. He afterwards plunged into the water and sivam towards the drowning boy (William Stephens, Caroline street), who was by this time quite unconscious. Matthias brought the lad ashore, and for- tunately. by his splendid knowledge of j iirst aid, succeeded in bringing him round. Then, leaving him in safe hands. the plucky rescuer returned to his task on the "Lucy." David Matthias, who is a son of pilot W. H. Matthias, joined the Navy during the first week of the war, and has been thronght most of the important, engage- ments. Although still a young man, lie has been instrumental in saving at least a \doZfn lives from drowning, but his modest and retiring disposition have not led to his heroic actions being recognized. On this occasion, however, Mr Winter- bottom, the harbour superintendent, in- tends doing all in his power to bring this act of bravery to the notice of the proper authorities.
Llanelly Cinema. The programme Mr. Ernest E. Carter is placing before hs patrons next week at the Cinema, Stepney street, is sure to again pack the house nightly. For Mon- day, Tuesday and Wednesday, he is show- ifig for his star one of Lasky's finest pro- duction entitled "Green Eyes." This is a drama of intense interest in which you will find Dorothy Dalton at her best. "Wee Lady Betty" is a sparkling Irish play full of quaint humour of the Emerald Isle, in which Bessie Love is al- together charming as the impervious little mistress of an Irish Castle. The further adventures of Stingarce help to make the programme most enjoyable. For Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Gerald- ine Farrar appears in "The turn of the wheel." This a is very romantic drama of a woman who staked her all on love and won. A striking character study of a woman of to-day risking everything to establish the innocence of a man con- demned to death is shown in this drama.. William S. Hart appears in "Riddle Gawne," -and being Llanellv's favourite is sure to receive greatest attention. The ,7th episode of the "Circus King" will also be screened. Great praise is due to Mr. Louis S. Clark for the booking of such fine pictures, and under the new management, this hall should be well patronized

Most of the unrest and discontent so prevalent to-day is due to the belief that undue profits are being made out of the sale of food, clothing, and the other necessaries of life. It is not so easy, however, to trace the evil to its proper source. The ramifications of trade are such that it is difficult to place a finger on the manufacturer or the agent or the wholesaler or the retailer and say— "Here is the profiteer." There are cases where goods pass through five hands before they reach the public. Each person would expect a reasonable profit, but the price to the public at the end must bo tremendous. In regard to margarine, it is beyond question that the profiteer is the speculator, not the maker nor the shopkeeper. A few weeks ago a cargo of lard was on its way to this country. Speculators got to work and when the vessel was entering the Mersey, it received orders to discharge its cargo in Denmark, the lard having been bought by speculators and re-sold by them to the Dutch at a profit of 2d. per lb. This is the kind of thing that must be stopped. I am, etc. Llanellj*, Llanelly, CONSUMER. I August 8th, 1919.

Water Famine. V'l ater Famine. WORKS MAY BE STOPPED NEXT WEEK. t ￼ The position in regard to Llanelly's water supply grows steadily r/orse. The long-continued drought has brought about a rapid lowering of the reservoir levels, and yesterday an emer^-ncy meet- ing of the Corporation was at Cwm- Iliedi to consider what steps should be t,t k I taken. I If the dry weather coutiiauc,, the Cor- I poration will have no altera; ve but to ¡ cut off the supply to the wf.ks. This [ will mean that a supply for household purposes for a month is assured. Cutting off the works supply will mean that most of the works will have to close down, and this step will be taken next Saturday if no rain falls in the meantime. Waste of water is still going on, but for some reason or other the water in- spectors are not very successful in bring- ing the guilty parties to book. In the present emergency, it is nothing short of criminal to waste water, and we would again appeal to all householders to put an end to it.

I P ) S. d | Pasto/s* Stipends i i —— I BIG SCHEME BY WELSH ￼ METHODISTS. I At the Sassiwn this week, the Welsh 1 Methodists adopted a scheme for increas- ing the salaries of ministers. It aims at raising £ 250,GOO for a central fund with a view to secure pastoral oversight of and regular preaching in all the churches. The scheme provided for a minimum sal- ary of L2,00 a year for married pastors and £ 150 a year for unmarried pastors. This might be a stipend of £83 per an- num for pastoral work, and a. fee of X2 5s. for each Sunday's preaching en- I ga,gement in the case of a married man, and a stipend ol' £ 46 per annum for pas- toral work, and a preaching fee of t2 each Sunday for the unmarried pastor. A preaching fee of- Cl 10s. was suggested for ministerial students. The income of the fund was to be derived from personal subscriptions, contributions by the churches and income from invested funds. Every church must contribute an average of at least 13s. per member per an- num towards its own ministry. The com- mittee laid it down as essential to the success of the fund that every church shall contribute towards it an average of not less than 2s. 6d. per member a year. A graduated scale of abatements was provided for churches heavily bur- dened with building debts. The commit- tee also recommended the grouping of churches- and a. more settled ministry, and urged that "in the best interests of the connexion and in order to promote a loftier conception of the religious and moral obligations concerning parenthood and the place of childreninthe State, the principle be recognised of makng grants to pastors in respect of their children."
