I I NOTES OF THE DAY
I NOTES OF THE DAY f from our London Correspondent. t [THE PRIME MINISTER. I m R. LLOYD GEORGE has aged much in the past 8 months. His hair is Hot only grey, almost white, but is be- rme thin and scanty. The face is deeply inrrowed, the eyes have lost their old I fire, there is a distinct loss of elasticity in his stride and movements. He does not look ill, but he is very careworn. I I do not think there is anything organical- ly wrong with him. Almost suddenly, however, he has become an old man. The terrible strain and ten-sion of the past two years made heavy draughts on his nervous energy and physical strength. It was a tired and weary man that ad- dressed the House of Commons last Mon- I day. He sorely needs a long rest. He j recuperates quickly and the vacation in Normandy will doubtless improve his spirits and bring the colour back to his face. What it will not do is to bring back the lost years. The war which found Lloyd George a young man- amazingly young in energy and feeling for his years-has left him an old man. THE BURDEN OF OFFICE. I IT never heard the Prime Minister to loss advantage than this week. For the first time in his Parliamentary career he fatigued the House of Commons. As a physical effort his 3 hours' speech was considerable, but intellectually and morally it was on a low plane. Hope, faith, inspiration were absent from it. It would be a good thing for Lloyd George and not a bad thing for the country if he were to disencumber himself from the burden of office. He has been a Minister of the Crown, without a break since December, 1905. These 14 years have been for him a time of almost un- ceasing strain. POSITION OF THE GOVERNMENT. I IN the 9 years before the war it hap- pened that the tasks of our peace statesmanship were grievously heavy, and it was Lloyd George who bore the most onerous share of them. During the war, too, the heaviest burden fell on his shoulders. Ably did he sustain it. His wonderful work in the war years has earned for him the gratitude of the country. He might now well rest on his i victorious laurels. A year of repose would refresh him in body and in mind and give him time to think and reflect. But temporary retirement is the last thing that is desired by men accustomed to power. They cannot bear the thought of quitting the great stage of public life. and relinquishing the direction of affairs to other hands. There is an avarice of power as there is of wealth. I do not be- lieve that Mr. Lloyd George has any in- tention of surrendering the Premiership. He will cling to it tenaciously; but I anake this prediction that as time goes on both he and his Government will rapidly decline in prestige and popularity. Al- ready the Government is thoroughly dis- -credited. FEEBLE WELSH MEMBERS. I IN the evjcws of the Parliamentary I ISession the experts agree that this House of Commons is Very barren of new talent; that the Labour Party has failed lamentably; and that Lord Robert Cecil has acquired a position of pre-eminent authority. They also all agree in ignoring the Welsh Parliamentary Party. There are some obscure creatures in nature too contemptible for notice. So there are in politics. Never has Wales been so feebly represented in the House of Commons as to-day. The Welsh people are naturally gifted, rich in energy and imagination, democratic to the core. No one would deduce this from the character of Welsh representation in Westminster. With the exception of LlO\ d George there is not a Inin of distinction in the Welsh party. Brace and Hartshorn are a credit to Welsh Labour. Where are the M.P.'s who shecl a glory on Welsh Liberalism ? "Half of them want jobs; the other half want titles"—that is how Mr MacVeagh, a witty Nationalist M.P., summed them up a few weeks ago. It was a cruel jibe. Who will say that it was not justified ? When will the real Wales be articulate in Westminster ?
A Brilliant Debut
A Brilliant Debut MISS MEGAN THOMAS AT THE I QUEEN S HALL. A crowded Queen's Hall audience gave a cordial reception to Miss Megan Thomas, the young Llanelly soprano, who made her debut last night. Miss Thomas -is a member of a familywhich has asso- ciated itself for many years with singing and music generally. Her father is Mr. John Thomas, the conductor of the Llan- elly Royal Choir, and her mother, Madam S. J. Thomas, is a notable figure in grand concerts, and won the soprano solo prize at the National Eisteddofd as far back as 1895, when Sir Joseph Barnby expressed his amazement at the wonder- ful singing of the competitors. For the past two years Miss Megan Thomas has obtained her wiition with Mr. Marchesi; who, in the early part of her training, expressed his delight with the quality and richness of her voice. Dr. Mary Davies, who herself has been one of Wales' most prominent singers, has also taken an interest in her progress. For her debut Miss Thomas chose two appro- priate items—"With Verdure Cld;" from Haydn's "Creation," and "My Message," by Guy d'Ardelot. She sang both songs with splendid sympathy, and was encored on each occasion., The critics agree that Miss Thomas possesses a voice of great promise and richness, and pre- dict for her a career which will rank with the success of her mother. Sir Henry Wood, who led her to the platform, con- ducted the orchestral accompaniment, and at the close Miss Thomas was pre- sented with a beautiful bouquet. The audience included many well-known Welshmen, among whom was her father, -Afr. John Thomas.
Serious Accident. —-9 I MAN FALLS AND IS RUN OVER. I A serious accident occurred at Pembrey on Thursday afternoon. The Llanelly- Burry Port charabanc whilst proceeding towards Pembrey got into contact with some telephone wires which at the time were lying loosely overhead. Mr. J. Bateman, of Silver row, Burry Port, working overhead on the wires, was thrown to the ground, unfortunately in frcnt of the bus, which could not be stopped until it kad passed over his body, causing serious injuries to his chest. He was immediately removed to the Llanelly Hospital, where he now lies in a pre- carious condition.

..The Boxing Menace.
The Boxing Menace. A RESPECTFUL APPEAL TO THE II MANHOOD OF LLANELLY. I In no acrimonious spirit and in no I censorious mood, but in accordance with the convictions of the Christian Churches and in deep anxiety for the moral welfare of Llanelly, we plead with all who have regard for true manliness, who cherish high ideals, and who are desirous of pro- tecting the good name of our town, to abstain from giving any support to the attempts made to introduce brutality into this great industrial centre. The Churches of Christ without bigotry, without intolerance, jmd without objec- tion to refined sport, have striven for the exclusion of this degrading form of amusement, which brings all manner of evil in its train. Its effects upon the community cannot be other than in- jurious, as it lowers the moral tone, and dulls the finer sensibilities, and en- courages the baser elements in human life. During the last five years, we saw thousands of young men leaving the homes, the churches, and the works of Llanelly, in the spirit of patriotism and self-sacrifice, to face the deadly perils on sea and battlefield, in order to defend Righteousness, Liberty and Honour: hundreds of whom have found early graves in foreign lands,'and others, we rejoice to think have been allowed to re- turn, although maimed and broken, yet victorious and bearing honourable scars. We treasure the memory of those chival- rous heroes whom we shall see no more in our midst: and we esteem beyond words the great sacrifices of all. It be- hoves us this day to guard most jealously the fruits of their victory. Out of re- spect for their prolonged agony, and in appreciation of the priceless security, which they have purcha.sed for us with their blood, we should all conduct our- selves seriously, and in a spirit worthy of the new era upon which we are about I to enter. We therefore APPEAL most earnestly to the young men of Llanelly,—those who are connected with the churches and those who are not—men nurtured in Christian homes, and citizens proud of the religious traditions of this borough- to .shun those assemblies where evil ten- dencies are in the ascendant, and not to countenance by their presence anything bordering on brutality.

Ond drwy amgylch- iadau anffodus, dyma'r gelyn wedi llwyddo i gyrraedd am unwaith at ein drws.

Ond yr ydym yn gwbl argyhoedd- edig mai agor y drws i lifeiriant o ddrygau fydd gollwng yr ymladdau ffyrnig hyn i'r dref. Gwelsom filoedd o ddynion ieuainc heinyf a phrydferth Llanelli yn troi allan i wahano] feusydd y Rhyfel ac i'r Mor, a'u hysbryd yn fflam o frwdfrydedd, o wladgarwch ac o hunanaberth. I ba beth yr aethant allan ? I amddiffyn iawnder a rhyddid ac anrhydedd eu gwlad; ac i ddiogelu ei henw da a'i haneirif freintiau cysegredig. Rhedodd eu gwaed eynes yn afonydd dodasant eu bywydau gobeithiol i lawr heb betruso: prynasant i ni eti- feddiaeth gostus, a gwnaethant yn bosibl gyfnod newydd o ragoriaethau ac o iawn- clerau ac o ogoniant. A ddiystyrwn ni ynte eu buddugoliaeth uchelbris ? ac a ddibrisiwn ni yn awr ffrwyth eu haberthau aruthrol gan adael i gymeriad drud ac enw da a nodweddfon goreu Llanelli fynd yn ysglyfaet? i ysbryd anheilwng ? Frodyr ieuainc! o bob cwr i'r dref, pa un bynag a ydych yn perthyn i'r Eglwysi ai peidio, apeliwn yn daer atoch am i chwi ymgadw oddiwrth yr arferion sydd yn darostwng, ac o bob lleoedd sydd yn peri i'ch natur oreu ddirywio, ac am i chwi beidio ymgymysgu o gwbl a'r neb sydd yn ymhyfrvdu mewn campau creu- lon.

Cottages Destroyed. I
Cottages Destroyed. I SOVEREIGNS SAVED FROM FIRE. I Two old thatched cottages, probably the oldest dwelling-houses in Llanelly. situated in Oxen street, were destroyed by fire on Friday evening. The outbreak occurred at the house of Mr. Wm. Morgan, who was away at work at the time, and it is stated that when ho arrived on the scene he immediaely en- tered the house, and from underneath a stone in the kitchen recovered about 20 sovereigns which had been hidden there. The fire quickly spread to the cottage adjoining, occupied by Mrs. Harris, and both were gutted. The thatched roofs of seven other cottages also became in- volved, but the outbreak at these was I subdued by the brigade. I Considerable excitement was caused by i the occupants of the other cottages re- j moving their furniture into the street. j _811' J- ill.n I

-1 Soccer Rally I LAST NIGHT'S MEETING OF SUPPORTERS. A meeting of the Llanelly Association Football Club was held at the Athenaeum Hall last night, Mr. Tom Samuel presid- ing. There were also present on the platform Mr. Leavey (player-manager), Mr. L. V. Mackenzie, and Mr. Taylor. A fair number of people were present. The Chairman, in his opening remarks, said that the main object of the meeting was to form a Supporters' Club. Such a club would be a valuable asset to the team. It would also be to the best in- terests of the club to work with the sister code. No good could materialize from jealous rivalry. "What we want in Llan- elly/' continued Mr. Samuel, "is a win- ning team. A team good enough to beat Swansea" (laughter). The next speaker was Mr. L. V. Mac- kenzie, who gave the audience a general survey of ih^ ivork of the provisional committee. The work carried on was largely that of organization. He stated that the question had been raised of pro- viding badges for members of the Sup- porters' Club," so as to easily distinguish them in the crowd. Twenty names were then submitted for the approval of the meeting, and thoso were then chosen to form the Supporters Club committee. Mr. Leavey, player-manager, who met with an enthusiastic ovation, in a few practical remarks, said it was his wish to do all he could for the welfare of the club. He had been playing a long time, but was not done yet, and would be pre- pared, in a few week's time, to join the other boys on the field of play (applause) Great things could not be expected at once, but he intended to persevere with his team. Other speakers were Mr. Geo. Palmer, Mr. G. Isaac, and Mr. Pretheran. In reply to a question respecting prices of admission this season, it was stated that seaon tickets (field and stand) would be £1 2s. 6d.; ;field alone, 15s. ladies' season ticket (stand), 78. 6d.; schoolboys' season tickets (field) 6s. Tax included in each case. The price of ad- mission to the field for each match had been fixed at Is. (tax included). Towards the close of the meeting ap- plications were invited for admission into the supporters club, and a good many names were soon secured.
