LLANELLY'S OPPORTUNITY. WE hope that the Harbour Trust will decide atonce to take full ad- vantage of the opportunity that will now offer itself under the new transport scheme of the Board of Trade. It is an opportunity which, if grasped in time, should he of enormous advantage to the port. One of the results of the war was to practically abolish coastwise shipping, I and what this has meant to Llanelly we I have only too good reason for knowing. The position to-day, however, is that the railways are totally unable to cope with the volume of traffic that they have to ¡ handle and the Government have decided to encourage the diversion of a portion of this traffic by sea. This is exactly I what Llanelly and other of the smaller ports have been waiting for. It will re- store the old regular coasting trade upon which the port used to depend for the I bulk of its revenue. An enormous trade in foodstuffs, hardware, textile goods, fruit, etc., is done between Llanelly and London, Liverpool, and Bristol. This is now consigned by rail, whereas it? ?-ill come more expeditiously by steamer as was the case in pre-war days The War I' Cabinet have now decided that no traffic ahall be carried by rail which could be effectively dealt with by coastwise car- riage. This should lead to Llanelly de- relaping into a great distributing centre for West Wales. THE NEW MAGISTRATES. I WITH all respect to the newly ap- pointed magistrates, we think that the list is more remarkable for the names j not to hcound in it, than for those which Tiave been included. It would not be j difficult to mention half a dozen Llan- ellyites who have at least equal claims with Kome of the fortunate ones, to a J seat on the Bench. On what principle j the Lord Lieutenant and his advisory committee have gone in making their j selection it is impossible to judge. If service to the community counts for any- thing—and evidently it does judging by j the large number cf county councillors who have been nomineted-liow is it that the claims cf Ald. D. James Davies have been overlooked ? We hold no brief for Mr. Davies, but surely his long record of public work entitles him to be placed on the Commission of the Peace. In another connection we might mention Llanelly's j "grand old man"—Mr. Fred Thomas, | whose sterling character alone, it us not unreasonable to suggest, should have raised him to the Bench years ago. With J regard to Mr. Wm. Griffit118 and Mr. Thomas Job, the "elders" in the new list, our only comment is that the honour in their case is long overdue. j I jTHE NOVEMBER ELECTIONS. THE November elections are approach- JL ing, and the time will soon come for the Corporation to decide whether they will retire en bloc, and thus give every member an opportunity of securing .anew the confidence of the ratepayers. j In our opinion they .should have no hesi- tation about doing this. It is, in fa-ct, the only democratic course to take. The ■Corporation exists only as the mouth- piece of the burgesses. Its members have ibeen elected by popular vote for a de- finite period. Owing to the war, how- ever no elections have been held for five years, and the Corporation have con- tinned to hold office from year to year, any casual vacancies that occurred being filled up by the unsatisfactory process of j co-option. All this has now come to an end, and in November the election will be hold as usual We are aware that the Charter provides that only a certain pro- portion cf the councillors Tetire each year, and this, of course, in normal times, works with satisfactory results. It was "never contemplated, however, that mem- bers should continue to hold office in- definitely year after year, long after the period for which they have been elected had expired. This is the position to-day. But for the war, every member would long ere now, have had to come to the ratepayers for a fresh vote of confidence, and this is what all of them should do in November. The councillors themselves; we hope, will for their own sakes, refuse o continue in office until they have the assurance that the ratepayers are be- hind them. PAY OF ENCINE DRIVERS. THE new scale of pay for engine drivers which has now been agreed to between the Government and the Union is a belated recognition of the ar- duous work done by a fine body cf men. Writing in the "Times" a few days ago, a correspondent points out that the engine driver is a skilled workman. He does not require a high degree of technic- al knowledge but he does require a long experience and that experience is very specialized. After 20 years service as a cleaner, a stoker, a driver of local goods trains, of local passenger trains, and eventually of main passenger trains, the engine driver is a valuable public ser- vant. Our English railway system is probably the best and safest in the world, largely because we possess such a body of experienced and conscientious workmen. Relatively to other railway workers, engine drivers have never been paid the proper value of their cervices. If the railway companies (says the writer in the "Times") had understood their business in handling men, they would have taken care to secure the loyalty of their best and mosi valuable servants by paying all their drivers over 40 a really handsome wage.
PRESENTATION AT THE LIBERAL…
PRESENTATION AT THE LIBERAL I CLUB. I At the Liberal Club on Thursday even- ing Mr. Thomas Blay was presented with a handsome timepiece in recognition of his services to the Club during the past 1 41 years. Mr. Blay carried out the duties of secretary during the absence of Mr. D. Hopkins on military service.
Llanelly Cinema. As was mentioned in our last week's issue, the warm weather does not affect the attendance at the Cinema in the slightest degree, as the house is packed nightly, and this is accounted for by the grand hooking of such fine films by Mr. Louis S. Clarke. Under the capable management of Mr. E. Carter, this place of amusement is easily the leading at. traction. For Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday next, a wonderfully artistic drama will be shown, "Her American Husband," featuring Darrell Foss and Teddy Sampson. "Laughing Bill Hyde" i.s a. thrilling talc of man's redemption, a Western drama in which Will Rogers at least has the merit of being unconven- tional both in appearance and methods. "The Further Adventures of Stingaree," episode 12, is full of stirring incidents. For Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Florence Reed appears in 'Wives of Men.' This is a serial drama that played to full capacity for two weeks at the Casino Theatry, New York. The end is one of the gpeat surprises of the story. "Jelly Fish" is a very fine Stoll production. Eddie Polo again appears in episode 9 of "The Circus King." The second part of tho "Adventures among Canihals'" is showing all the week. This shows the arrival of Mr. Martin Johnson and his plucky wife in the Solomon Isles, and their firsts introduction to the man-eating tribe. One very striking scene in the part is the drilling of the savage police by a British officer.

1Food Still DearerI —-0—
1 Food Still Dearer I —- 0 — I PRICES HIGHER THAN A YEAR AGO I There was a sharp rise in the retail I prices of food during July. According to the "Labour Gazette," the average in- I crease on August 1st was 117 per cent. as compared with July, 1914, the corres- ponding figure for July 1st this year be- ing 109 per cent. For the first six months after the Armistice prices slowly fell, but in June there was a fresh upward movement, and they now stand higher than they were a year ago at the tensest period of the war. Changes since November, 1918, have been as follows:- November 133 per cent. January 130 March 120 11 April 113 „ May 107 1) June 104 July 109 „ August 117 I I L nless the measures to be taken against profiteering have a greater^influence than is generally anticipated, the position is likely to become worse instead of better, and during the coming winter prices pro- mise to be at least as high as they were from November last year to February. Milk is cheaper again this month, and potatoes are now at a reasonable figure, but for most' things more anq more money is required, and such articles as sugar may eventually become much more ex- pensive. For all the principal items ordinarily entering into the pre-war working class family budget the average increase in re- tail prices (including rents) was about 115 per cent. at August 1st, as compared with between 105 and 110 per cent a month earlier. Profiteering in Bananas. I It is stated' that steps are being taken by Messrs. Elders and Fyffes to stamp out profiteering in the bananas they im- port. A poster is shortly to be issued by the firm, which all middlemen will be asked to exhibit, insisting that the price to be charged' for the fruit by retailers shall not exceed 2d. each. The importers have no legal power to restrict retail prices, but they could put difficulties in the way of retailers obtaining direct sup- plies. There is no longer any reason why 9d. a lb. should be paid for apples, except, perhaps, for- picked dessert specimens. There are excellent supplies, and the wholesale price, even for the best quality, is low enough to permit retail sales at I' not more than 7d. a lb. Small green apples should be sold at 3d. and 4d. a I lb. It will be interesting to see what retail prices are asked for Victoria plums when the fruit comes on the market. Reports from the orchards suggest that the crop is an unusually heavy one. Jam manu- facturers are to get the plums at £ 25 a ton, or less than 3d. a lb.

New Fuel Industry. —« SPECIAL TRADE PROCESS TO BE I CARRIED ON IN LLANELLY. In our last issue we gave some particu-I lars of the new fuelworks which is to be built on a site adjacent to the North I Dock. Negotiations have been c,?ari,,d through for the acquisition from the I Harbour Trust of about three acres of ground. The Trust were impressed by the possibilities of the undertaking, the Com- pany giving a. guarantee w ship at least 8,000 tons a week at the North Dock. This will be equivalent to a revenue of over L10,000 a year to the port. New Tratie Process. This Company has been formed to carry on the manufacture of Briquettes and Smokeless Fuel under a special trade pro- cess, in conjunction with machinery which has been designed for the purpose. This process and special plant will en- able the Company to make use of an- thracite coal dust in considerably larger proportions than has hitherto been found possible for Briquette making in this country. The Briquettes manufactured under this process will possess the ad- vantage j 1. Of being capable of manufacture from an extremely cheap quality of material. I 2. Of having a higher calorific value than Briquettes made from other kinds Ii of coal, and 3. Of being practically smokeless. The Briquettes to be manufactured by I the Company will be suitable for house- hold, industrial, locomotive, and marine I purposes, and can be blended to meet the pecification of the large Continental I buyers. The process of Briquctting consists in j taking various qualities of coal dust and j washing, blending, and reconstituting them into lump form, the resulting pro- duct being equal if not superior in calor- ific value to the coal from which the coal dust is derived. Use of Small coal. I Use of SmaJl Coal. I The value of using small coals and coal dust which cannot otherwise be utilized economically, has been much more gener- ally recognized on the Continent, and this is demonstrated by the fact that although Great Britain is the largest coal produc- ing country for its size in the world. Briquettes have been manufactured in France and Germany in far larger quan- tities than in this country. The chief foreign markets for Briquetted fuels are France, Belgium, Italy, Spain. Brazil, and the Argentine Republic. This is in addition to the demand for the home trade, which is increasing very rapidly, .-nd a ready sale for the entire output cf this plant is assured. Up-to-date Plant. I The proposed plant will represent a most up-to-date and complete installa- tion, embracing valuable and special features. While possessing all the ad- vantages of that supplied to and used for several years past by the most successful I Briquetting Companies on the Continent, it will embody all the latest improvements and additions. The plant includes all the machinery on the sidings for automatical- ly discharging the coal wagons; the col- lecting hoppers with automatic control for delivery; the elevators, screening machinery, washing machinery, with all t-ke necessary pumps, pipes, valves,, sluices, and distributing conveyors and elevators; the coal drying machinery with I feeding and delivery elevators and con- veyors, the blower fans, furnaces, hot-air ducting, dust collectors, and chimneys; all the machinery for grinding, mixing, ] blending, measuring the various coals and binders; all the machinery for heat- I ing, cooking, feeding, moulding, and I pressing the various sizes and shapes of I Briquettes; the conveyors for delivering the finished Briquettes to the railway wagons for transport to the buyers; the electric motors and switch gear for driv- ing all the machinery; the shafting, pulleys, and belting for transmitting the power—A complete electric lighting in- stallation. The buildings for housing the I whole of the machinery. The offices, stores, bunkers, canteen for staff and workpeople, with sanitary and bath con- veniences. The above plant constitutes a complete unit and is guaranteed by the contractors to have an output capacity of 800 tons of Briquettes and 500 tons of washed coals a day and a production of 187,500 tons of Briquettes and 75,000 tons of washed coals a year should be realized without difficulty and even exceeded. It is anticipated that this first section will be ready to- mannfacure Briquettes in six months from the commencement of the works. Further sections can be added from time to time as may be con- sidered advisable.

i s p fof t tfn(y Gossip I Sp?f?ng Gossip LLANELLY V. SWANSEA. These old rivals met for the last time this season at Stradey on Saturday, there-- being a good attendance. The teams had previously met on three occasions, Llan- elly succeeding in winning two gatnes: whilst the other was a win for Swansea- i Unpromising Start. I Llanelly fielded a strong side, but Swansea were minus two men at the com- mencement of the game, who put in an appearance later. Llanelly, who opened the play. made a very unpromising start. D. Davies along with W. Davies faced the bowling of Creber and Geen but only six runs had been registered when the Llanelly stumper succumbed to Creber. C. F. Trubshaw then arrived at the wicket, and after scoring a fine boundary a ball from Geen dismissed him. I Disappointment to the homesters. After Percy Rees' appearance things improved somewhat fer the Stradey men, and Davies was justifying the compli- ment paid him of opening Llanelly's innings. Along with Rees he assisted in carrying the total to 38, at which figure he lost yet another partner. Dr. Gwyn Thomas in whom was centred much hope, filled the vacancy, but a de- livery from Geen gave him his quietus. The doctor's dismissal added consider- ably to the disappointment of the home team's supporters, they having in the past been justified in placing implicit confidence in his abilities a batsman. ',Ities aa a batsman. Steady Batting. H. E. John next took his stand at the wicket, but like his immediate predeces- sor, the Llanelly skipper was dismissed first ball. Llanelly's fifth wicket fell with the total at 39. Meanwhile D. Davies was batting very steadily and with A. R. Trubshaw partnering him the home team's prospects of at least making a respectable score improved. The newly- arrived batsman soon showed contempt for Geen whom he sent to the boundary on several occasions. All Out 195. After scoring 48, A. R. Trubshaw was unfortunate in being caught out by Pen- rose before totalling the half century. C. Warner then partnered D. Davies and these two batsmen kept steadily "piling on the agony." With 38 runs to his credit Warner left the wickets after be- ing caught out by J. Bancroft. W. P. Williams filled the vacancy, and after scoring 11 was dismissed by Creber. E. Gee made an excellent show with the bat scoring 32 runs in a very short space of time, most of his run a being obtained from Creber's deliveries. The homesters were all out for 195 runs. Swansea's poor shew. With 196 rçns to score—to win—the Swansea men faced the bowling of D. Davies and E. Gee, but the task proved too much for them, and after registering 47 runs, the tenth wicket fell. The Swan- sea team put up a very poor exhibitin on the whole, and the margin of Llanelly's- win truly demonstrates the merit of the winners. COMMENTS. I- Although the wicket favoured the batsmen, not one of them reached the half-century—not to mention the century. D. Davies and A. R. Trubshaw put in the best show with the bat, each scoring 48, Percy Mmorris being the visitors' top scorer with only 12 runs. The bowling of E. Geo was most deadly, and proved disastrous to the visitors, his perform- ance in obtaining 5 wickets for the small cost of nine runs being a remarkable one. Dai Davies sueceeded in felling four for 31 runs. The majority of the home bats- men treated Creber with respect, and it- is worthy of note that only 19 runs were hit off his bowling in nine overs. An amusing incident occurred during the period of Llanelly's innings. An unruly spectator shouted to Creber during his' bowling to "bowl straight." The Swansea pro immediately offered him the ball, which he declined. Sport can thrive without the assistance of these "how lers. RODERICK'S XI. Although the cricket season is fast darwing to a close, the Roderick eleven are not slackening down in the least. On Saturday last, on the County School field, they inflicted a severe defeat on the Pwll team, to the tune of 71-39. The wicket was in excellent condition. Roderick's batted first, and chiefly through the displays of Arthur Edwards (17), Willie Williams (10), nd T. J. Rees (10 not out), were able to compile the useful score of 71. Were it not that three players were unfortunately run out the soore would undoubtedly have been very much heavier. D. J. Davies, who scored five singles, and appeared to be getting nicely set, was badly run out, the same fate also befalling T. J. Hopkins. A fine last wicket stand was made, the score being taken from 47 to 71. Of the Pwll bowlers, Dan Evans took. the honours, capturing 4 for 29, Willic- Richards coming second with two for 35. Pwll never appeared comfortable, and owing to the masterly attack of Arwyn Davies, T. J. Hopkins, and D. J. Davies^ were all disposed of for the small score of 39. The only batsman to give trouble | was D. Rowlands, who hit up a useful 15, but could not obtain much support from his fellow players. Arwyn Davies J captured six wickets for 13, T. J Hopkins | two for 15, and D. J. Davies one for 6. 1 all being wen at their very best.
