I Wages of Steel Workers.I
I Wages of Steel Workers. I FURTHER CONCESSIONS GRANTED. Further concessions have been granted by the Court of Arbitration in connection Y e tl with the recent reference concerning the South Wales Iron and Steel Makers' As- sociation and the workers' Union. The workmen's claim was that passers on the rail bank should be paid a rate of 2d. per ton standard (6s. a day standard) and turners a rate of Id. one-third a ton standard (5s. a day standard). The wages of the workmen are goverened by the sliding scale agreement. The agreement now in force is dated July 1st, 1915, and provides that the rates that have been altered, advanced, or reduced since March, 1895, are to re- main in force during the existence of the sliding scale, which is subject to vari- ation. At the arbitration proceedings the employers offered an increase in the standard rates of 6d. a shift to the passers and 3d. a shift to the turners to take effect from April 1st this year. The court award that in view of the terms of the agreement mentioned, the claim as submitted is not established, but the standard rate shall be increased to 5s. a shift for passers and 4s. Id. a shift for turners, to take effect from April 1st.

Joint Hospital —^ Win — WILL BURRY PORT DROP THE LLANELLY SCHEME ? At a meeting of the Burry Port Coun- cil on Thursday, the Clerk (Mr. J. Lewis Phillips) stated that he bad received a letter from the County Council with re- ference to the proposed Isolation Hos- pital. The letter stated that the county authorities intended building this hospital in the area of the Llanelly Rural District Council, and they hoped that Burry Port would fall in with this scheme. Mr W. D. Jenkins: Have they given any details ? The Clerk: o. You must first decide with which scheme you intend joining, the Llanelly one or the County. Mr. W. D. Jenkins: Is it true that the Rural District Council have joined the county ? The Clerk: Yes. Mr. Fred Morgan: If we join the county scheme we should first inform the Llanelly Corporation. Mr. Thomas Davies was* of opinion that a special meeting should be con- vened to discuss the subject. On the recommendation of the Clerk it was decided to reply stating (that they were in favour of joining them, but would not bind themselves until they had obtained further particulars.
OBITUARY I -——— I MRS. G. M. EVANS. To the deep regret of a large circle of attached friends, Mrs. Evans, wife of Mr. G. M. Evans, manager of the National Provincial Bank, passed away in the early hours of Tuesday. Some weeks pre- viously, Mrs. Evans was removed to the Hospital to undergo an operation. This was successfully performed, but later on, heart weakness supervened. The deceased lady was a very popular figure in the town, her good humour and never failing cheerfulness endearing her to all with whom she came in contact. She was a devoted mother, never so happy as in the company of her six children. Prior to her marriage, Mrs. Evans attained dis- tinction as a nurse and at one time had Nurse Cavell as one of her colleagues. The funeral took place yesterday after- noon, the last sad rites being performed by the Rev. Rees Griffiths, M.A. Thece were a large number of beautiful floral tributes. The following gentlemen acted as bearers:—Mr. David Davies, Cbwell House, Mr., Frank Collingridge, Mr. C. C. Talbot, Mr. D. Gwilym Williams, Mr. J. B. Harries, Mr. Brinley R. Jones, Lieut .-Col. Bramwell Jones, and Mr. Joseph H. Williams.

I'-; ILocal Estate
I' I Local Estate I FARMS SOLD PRIVATELY. Messrs. William and Walter James, F.A.I., conducted an important sale of freehold farms and small-holdings on Thursday at Llanelly. There were 50 lots catalogued, forming parts of the Llangennech Park and Clayton Estates, aggregating nearly 1,300 acres. The pro- ceedings were quickly over, the auctioneer announcing that most of the lots had been disposed of privately, in nearly every case to the tenants. No figures were disclosed. Mr. D. L. Bowen, on behalf of the local branch of the Farmers' Union, put in a plea for the tenants, who, he con- tended, should have the opportunity of purchasing their holdings. The auctioneer explained that this had been the desire of the owner, Capt. Morton Evans, who in each case had first offered the lots to the respective tenants. The solicitors were Messrs. Roderick and Richards, Llanelly.
Lucky Police !
Lucky Police NICE SUM IN BACK PAY. A special meeting of the Standing Joint Committee was held at Carmarthen on Friday, Mr. D. W. Drummond, pre- siding. The Chairman apologized for having called them together, but a circu- lar had been received from the Secretary of State instructing the committee to pay all ranks of Police the .sum of £10 each on account of advance in wages which were to be retrospective from the 1st of April last. It would take some time to re-adjust the pay hence the payment on ) account. In a few cases the chairman had acted upon their own and instructed the Clerk to make the necessary payment, but he preferred to call them together rather than act on his own. The re- quisite forms had not yet arrived, so it was impossible for them to consider the scale at all. Mr. J. Hinds, M.P. We have no other I course to proceed but to authorise the payments. A member expressed dissatisfaction at the slow methods of procedure by the Government departments. Was it not psOtSible for the Committee to hurry them up. Chairman: Complaints of that nature should be made to some other place. We have nothing to do with that now. The necessary payments of £ 10 each were authorised.

Cwm-capel Road -1
Cwm-capel Road -1 THE PETITION TO THE RURAL COUNCIL. The Surveyor's report on the Cwm- bychan and Capel road, Pembrey, was read at the Rural District Council meet- ing on Thursday. At the previous meeting a petition was received from the inhabitants around that district calling upon the Council to repair the road which was in a terrible condition. The petition stated that it was impossible to take a load of coal along the road. The report stated that although the road was in a bad condition the Council were not liable for keeping it in repair as it was a private road. It was true that a load of coal could not be taken along it, and the estimated cost to put it in a good condition would be £ 14. Ho would suggest that the inhabitants should pay half this and the work be proceeded with immediately. The Clerk said that he jad received a letter stating that £ 4 had already been collected towards the cost Jf its repair. Mr. Dd. Evans: Although the road is a private one I think we should give some help towards the cost of its repair as the inhabitants havo to pay rites. I think we should ask them to ccntribute one- third of the cost. The Chairman (Mr. W. L Nevill) was of the opinion that they should accept £ 5 10s. towards the cost and proceed with the work. Mr. David Evans: A road was built in Trimsaran at the cost of zcloo, and the Parish Council did not ask the inhabit- ants to pay a penny. If you are going to iiaqk-o these people pay one half the cost, make it a rule for everybody. The Clerk: Will you want the money j before proceeding with the work ? Mr. Dd. Evans: Yes, one-third of it (laughter). It was decided to call upon the in- habitants to contribute £ 5 10s. towards the cost of repairing the road.

I Profiteering. I BURRY PORT COUNCILLOR'S QUESTION. "What's the good of penalizing a man for a penny, and leaving those who are doing their thousands in London alone," asked Councillor W. D.

IWaste of Water. i
I Waste of Water. —W BURRY PORT. A COMPLAINT AT BURRY PORT. The shortage of water at the Graig was discussed at the Burry Port Council meeting on Thursday, Mr. John Evans presiding. The discussion was opened by Mr. W. D. Jenkins who said he had received dozens of complaints from the inhabitants about the seriousness of the position. He understood the Rural District Council were very anxious to use the mains in that district to convey water to certain parts of their area. If this was so, it might be to their benefit to meet the Rural District Council again and discuss the ¡ matter once more, and by offering the use of the pipes to them they might re- duce the charge they had offered to supply water to that district. I The Survyor (Mr. Bull) said there was always a shortage of water in the Graig. The Clerk stated that owing to "physical" reasons the Llanelly Corpor- ation could not supply water to the Graig. This was owing to the distn-t being on such a high level. But he did not think the Corporation would restrain anybody else who could supply the water from doing so. Mr. Fred Morgan: Is there enough pressure in Llynyian (R.D.C. Reservoir) to take water up the Graig ? The Surveyor: There is enough pressure there to take it up to heaven (laughter). Mr. W" D. Jenkins I did not expect a "full dress debate" on the subject, but I thought that there was a good opening for further negotiations with the Rural District Council. The Clerk: The Rural District Council don't meet again until a month to-day. Mr. Dl. Davies: There is more water wasted in that district than used. In one i- I lx iere is a continual wastage going on, from one ^iojuu^, morning to the other. Mr. Fred Morgan: The Surveyor den- ies this. The Surveyor: With regard to the tap in question, there is absolutely no wast- age there. I was informed of this some time ago and I wrote to the R.D.C. and got a curt reply stating that if I visited the spot I would find that there was no wastage at all. Mr. Dl. Davies: There is a wastage there. Mr. F. Morgan: Then let Mr. Davies and the Surveyor visit the spot and see I for themselves. Mr. Dl. Davies: Don't say that. I walk enough all day. The Chairman: The R.D.C. are sup- plying water to some people for sixpence and charging us ninepence. Profiteering with a vengeance- Mr. W. D. Jenkins :Did the deputation when they visited them know that? Chairman: No. Mr. W. D. Jenkins: Well that's a good argument for them. The Surveyor then read the letter he had received from the Water Engineer of the R.D.C. with reference to the al- leged wastage at the Graig. Mr. Dl. Davies: He does not know what he is talking aboxft. The Surveyor: Well he is an Associate of the Institute of Civil Engineers, (laughter). It was ultimately decided that the Chairman (Mr. John Evans) and the Surveyor should visit the spot, and re- port further on the subect of "wastage." A motion by Mr. W. D. Jenkins that another deputation shodd visit the R.D.C. was defeated by 6 votes to 3.
