He is also one of the most seasoned marks- men in Wales, ind, in his sixtieth year, holds the distinction of being the only Welshman who has won the gold medal at Bisley. He won it first in 1893, it being then known as the Queen's Prize, and again in 1903, when it was known as the King's Prize.

The Boxing Controversy.
The Boxing Controversy. I To the Editor Of the "Star." f bir, The local ministers and their supporters have been much in the limelight of late. They have been fighting a crusade against one of the many evils of the times—they have rescued Llanelly from a danger which threatened to lower the moral of the town. This, of course, is what they say. What they have really done is to coerce a cowering Council into breaking its bond, in this way successfully imposing the will of the minority upon the whole. All ) this, too, about a subject, upon which the majority of the "Deputation" are abysmally ignorant. Boxing to them brings visions of two gory savages springing at each other like tigers with snarling jaws and eyes ablaze, whilst the onlooking crowd, all its lowest passions "oused, bets, bellows, and blasphem I am myself prepared to admit that there are many reforms needed in the boxing world, but take the sport itself and divest it of all its unsavoury ad- juncts and you will find it clean, healthy and attractive. Encourage clean boxing tournaments and you will develop amateur boxing which will at least raise the physical standard of our young men. It should be the work of every man, especially those who consider themselves appointed to teach and christianize the I people, to encourage all forms of sport as an antidote to the easily acquired habits of vice which undoubtedly are spreading amongst our young men. The local ministers must understand that it requires something more than platform platitudes to convince the general public, whether they relate to Theology or Boxing; they must come down from the self-made pedestals and show themselves men worthy to instruct, or be prepared to have all their opinions received with derision or contempt. I am, etc. Sept. 4th, 1919. D.G. I
Surveyor's Salary. ——— ——— COUNCIL GRANT AN INCREASE. The Surveyor's salary was the subject of a lengthy discussion at a meeting of the Burry Port Council on Thursday night. Mr. Fred Morgan was about to vacate the chair ae chairman of the Finance Committee when Mr. Daniel Davies called his attention to another matter on he agenda, the question of the Surveyor's salarv. Mr. F. Morgan: The chairman of the Council (Mr. W. T. Edmunds) was pre- sent at a meeting of the salaries commit- tee last night and he is going to make a report on the matter to you. He is not present yet, but I expect him here any moment. Mr. DI. Davies: You were present at tho meeting as well and I move that we get on with it. Mr. W. D. Jenkins: I think the best thing to do is to wait for Mr. Edmunds, and have his report. Dr. Williams: I don't see why we should wait for any man, as one council- lor is not more important than another. Mr. Edmunds then arrived and imme- diately proceeded to give his report in the course of which he stated that during the meeting on the previous night certain facts were disclosed which astonished him. He then read the Surveyor's ap- plication for an' increase from £ 180 per annum to t250 (inclusive). The work (stated the applicant) has greatly in- creased since my appointment, and if the increase is granted I am prepared to do the work of Clerk of Works and Engineer together with my work as surveyor, if called upon. Mr. Fred Morgan: Do you think the Surveyor should be in the room during the discussion ? Mr. W. T. Edmunds: It's for you to decide. I don't object. The Surveyor was then asked to retire. During the Surveyor's absence the matter was discussed, and the recom- menda: ion of the Salaries Committee that the Surveyor's application be granted was adopted.

I New G.W.R. Line. I PASSENGER STATION AT THE FURNACE. I It is announced that the new G.W.R. I line between Llangennech and Burry Port, along the Furnace route, will be proceeded with as soon as conditions per- mit. Should Fishguard again become a port of call for Ocean liners, this will al- most certainly become the route followed by the connecting express trains as it will be shorter than the old, main line and comparatively free from "service slacks." The ruling grade, also, is 1 in 120 throughout as compared with the 1 in 50 of the Cockett bank. Part of the scheme includes a new passenger station for Llanelly near the Furnace.

The three new Justices replied amidst applause, aiil thanked the members for their kind wishes.

A Father's Maintenance.
A Father's Maintenance. GUARDIANS REFUSE THE SON'S APPLICATION. The case was re-heard at a meeting of th. ,Board of Guardians on Thursday of a sc who complained about having to pay for the upkeep of his father, who was an inmate of the Asylum. The father was the owner of a house, and part-owner of two other houses, and also had zC300 in War Loans. The son had been paying 14s. a week, but had recently been called upon to, pay 24s. tt Relieving Officer White: The man is outside, and wishes to speak to you. Applicant stated that he used to pay 14s. a week and was now called upon to pay 24s. which in his opinion was exces- sive. The Chairman (Mr. W„ Y. Nevill): Your father has some property, together with R300 in War Loans. so we cannot deal with the case in any other way. Applicant: My father has been striv- ing all his life to keep this money. The Chairman: The price of food and labour has increased. That is why the rate you have to pay has gone up. Mr. Pugh: Don't yov think you should have the income, and instead of paying 14s. a week you would only have to pay 6s. ? No reply. The Chairman: Who gets the interest from the War Loan ?—My sister. Mr. Dd. Evans: It is not fair when your father is in the Asylum that the ratepayers have to pay for his upkeep, whilst other people get the benefit of his property. Mr. Pugh: The ratepayers would ob- ject if we let you off without paying. The Chairman: You will have to pay 24s., and towards this 18s.6d. will come out of your father's property. Applicant: My wages are only R5 14s. a week, and I have three children to keep. Mr. David Evans: You divide your father's income, I expect P Ye. Mr. David Evans: Then I object to your application. The Chairman: The law tells UB what to do. Applicant: The law is very drastic in this case. p The Chairman: Well, we :cannot do anything for you. The applicant then withdrew.

IFemale AttendaeceOff icer
I Female AttendaeceOff icer I APPOINTMENT BY THE EDUCATION COMMITEE. For the post of female attendance offi- cer, the following applications were re- ceived on Thursday night:— B. H. Delaney, 13, Russell street; Hilda Evans, Penrhiw, Furnace; Edith Harries, 24, Ralph terrace; Minnie Hopkins, 26, Cold- stream .street; Lizzie Jones, James street, M. Lewis, New street; M. Perrott, 25, Prospect place; Ethel. Sweet, 65, Robin- son street; Annie Thomas, Central Houses, Burry Port; M. J. Williams, 14, Walters road; and Edith Morley, 6 Upper Park street. The following survived the first ballot: Edith Harries (11 votes) M. Perrott (11); Minnie Hopkin-s and Edith Morley (9 each); B H Delaney (8); Hilda Evans and M. J. Williams (6 each). The number was again reduced to four, with this result: Edith Harries (9), M. Hopkins (7), M. Perrot. (10), whilst as there was a tie between M. J. Williams and Edith Morley, the Chairman gave the casting vote in favour of the latter. The final ballot was decided between Edith Harries and M. Perrott, and re- sulted in a majority for the latter by 9 votes to 3. Miss Perrott was then duly appointed. The Chairman made an enquiry as to whether it would be necessary for the ap- pointed lady to undergo a medical ex- amination before commencing her duties. Coun. D. Jennings: Was it laid down so in the advertisement ? The Clerk: No, sir. Coun Jennings: Well, I think it should be stated in all future advertisements that the person appointed would be re- quired to undergo an examination; but we could let it pass this time. The Chairman: I think it is our duty to safeguard ourselves in this business. There was a case in point not long ago when the latest appointed teacher at Copperwork-s School, who had only been there a few months, was away half the time owing to illness. It was ultimately decided to adopt Coun. Jennings' suggestion and state the necessity for a medical examination in future advertisements.

! Roadmen's Wages.
Roadmen's Wages. I a I LIVELY DISCUSSION. At the meeting of the Main Roads Cortt- mittee on Wednesday, the question of l the roadmen's wages was discussed. They applied for the Stoker Award. The Clerk stated that the present rate It was 42s. for rural areas, and 44s. for in- dustrial areas. The hours worked at present wease 51. Mr. Alfred Stephens asked whether the Council did not employ too many men. They had had steam-rollers, tarred the roads, brought the metal to where it was required, and yet they employed the same number of men. Mr. BowMi (Llanelly) proposed that the men should be paid the Government award. (This would mean about JE2 ISs. 9d. per week of 47 hours). 1\1r; Ben. Evans considered the men were being paid reasonable wages at pre- sent. Agricultural labourers were being paid 37B- 6d. per week, or roughly &1. per hour. In order to make it an even sum he was prepared to propose they be paid 42s. 6d. in rural areas, and 51s. in industrial' areas. Mr. J. Lewis, Meiros Hall, in second- ing, said he thought the dissatisfaction did not arise from the men, but caused by agitators who were getting hundreds a year for creating unrests. Rev. E. B. Lloyd: He happened to live close to the main road, and the question was not how many hours the men worked but whether they did work. There should be a better and closer supervision. They could come and go whenever they liked. Let them see they did something for their money. He was a working man himself. He was inclined to support Mr. Evans' proposition. Mr. Holmes: One reason for the un- rest was that roadmen saw what the policemen were getting, and were led to ask why should the policemen be -getting so much for walking about the road. Mr. H. E. B. Richards: The police- men's work i quite a different class of work. Mr. Holinos: The police were simply walking about the road with neither pick nor shovel. Mr. J. Lloyd (Penybank) said he was very much surprised that an educated man like Mr. Holmes should endeavour to compare the two. The policeman was a man who risked his life. Let him go to Ireland, or Cardiff, or even to Tumble at certain times. Mr. Alfred Stephens considered it was a most unfair comparison by Mr. Holmes. According to that the roadmen might ask why did they not get as much as Mr. Holmes because they worked harder (laughter). On being put to the vote 21 voted for the amendment by Mr. Ben Evans that they should be paid 42s. 6d. and 51s. re- spectively, and 9 voted for the motion by Mr. Bowen tfeat they be paid 58s. 9d. A further amendment by Mr. Watkins, Llandovery, that they be paid Is. per hour all round was defeated by 19 votes to 10.

Later in the day the happy couple left for- Hereford where th& honeymoon is being spent. Much popular interest was aroused; in the Sandy district this morning on the occasion of ari, interesting wedding which was solemnized by the Rev. Dr. Gwylfa Roberts, at Zion Chapel. Owing to in- disposition the Rev. E. T. Jones was un- able to officiate. The contracting parties were Miss Annie Perrott, daughter of Mr D„. G. and the late Mrs. Perrott, of "Rose Aeron,* Sandy road, and Mir. Llew. Rees. son of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Rees, of "Bryn Awel," Sandy road. The bride, who was very tastefully attired,, was at- tended by her sister, Miss Margretta Perrott, as bridesmaid, while- the duties of best man were carried out by Mr. Luther Rees, brother of the bridegroom. After, the ceremony, a reception was held at the home of the bridle's parents, and the congratulations of a host of friends, were offered the happy couple who were also the recipients of a large number of useful presents. Later Mr. and Mrs. Rees left for Aberystwyth where the honeymoon is beings spent.
