? 1'1 ￼ II lo-days Football j Llanelly v. Nerlh. 0 After the stimulating victory over Swansea last Saturday, the Sospans met the "All Blacks" at Stradey this after- noon. In view of the visitors' compara- tively poor form this season the home snpp">J < rs never for moment doubted the rt.-Auk oi tiie ga.«ie. The Llandly; team was, with the exception of Percy Roberts, who occupied the inside half position, the same as the one that de- feated the All Whites on the previous Soturdoy. An interesting feoture of the visiting team was the inclusion of Dr. Gwyn Thomas as full back. This player assisted the Cricket XI. last season and proved himself an excellent batsman, and local sportsmen were anxious to see how he would fare with the Rugger bajl. I Neath have ever been a source of attrao- tion to local football enthusiasts, and a good gate was anticipated, The homesters were represented as fol- lows :-Hugh Jones; FrnkaE van, Gra- ham Davies, Albert Jenkins and Brin Evans; Percy Roberts and Llew Bennett; D. Hiddlestone (capt.), Rev. W. T. Havard, Geo. Morgan, A. Thomas, T. J. Bowen, Bobbie Evans, Gwyn Francis and Edgar Morgan- There were three changes in the Llan- elly team from that selected, the Captain (D. Hiddlestone), Geo. Morgan, and G. Francis standing down owing to injuries. The vacancies were filled by D. J. Phil- lips, Joe Iwen and Jack Jones. There was 3,000 spectators on the field when the All Blacks put in an appear- ance at 4.30, an hour late. Neath kicked off and in returning the kick was rushed down. The home for- wards however dribbled the ball down the field, but for an infringement Neath were awarded a'free kick. The kick only temporarily relieved the pressure, the homesters returning to the attack imme-I diately. Llew Bennett picking the ball up in the loose trnasferred to Albert Jenkins, but Graham Davies failed to take a. pass from the latter. The Scar- j lets were awarded a free kick in the visi- tors' 25 and Albert Jenkins taking the kick scored a beatiful goal within tEtl minutes play. I The Neath forwards were heeling the I ball out from the scrums in fine style. and their backs were often afforded ex- cellent opportunities which went astray owing to poor passing. Offside play on the port of one of the All Blacks' halves I resulted in the homesters being awarded a free kick, and Albert Jenkins taking the kick found touch near the visitors' line. Albert Jenkins made another at- tempt to kick a goal and only missed by inches, his effort being loudly applauded. From a touch throw one of the Neath forwards got poscssion and dribbled up the field gaining much ground. Graham Davies taking the ball was charged by one of the visitors. Racing down the field a score seemed certain, but Albert Jenkins pounced on him a few inches from the line. The Llanelly backs got going again and a pretty movement by Graham Davies and Frank Evans resulted in the latter scoring a try which Albert Jenkins con- verted. Half-time Score.

L!?!!y V Mi:?-Rh>ndk!a j l..1i.J>t.6 I Z h ? ?a —■» The visit of the "Mushrooms" to Half- way Park this afternoon aroused son- sidercble interest in the tinplate town owing to the fact that both teams have an unbroken record. The visitors, who are acknowledged to be one of the strong- est combinations in South Wales had a huge following of supporters who were conveyed by a number of charabancs. The Llanelly tenm was as follows?— Goal: Bailiffe; backs: James and Blain; halves: Go;:gh, Martin, and Rouse; for- wards: Morris, Leavey, Poyntz, Levi and Liverns. Tyre trouble on the rond held up more than half the visitors and the kick-off did net take place until nftfer 4 p.m. j There M as a veryencouraging gate, supplementary by a. big contingent of Rhonddites. The homesters had the best of the opening -stages and had hard lines from a penalty and the ensuing corner, Leavey just heading outside. The visi- tors goalie had to snve from Martin and Leavey. Rouse was playing a fine game and was giving Bachc little scope. The Llanelly left wing was showing up well, Severns just mised with a fine shot. The Scarlets' form showed great im- provement, Poyntz made a fine effort to put the homesters ahead, and Moody just managed to save at the expense of a corner. Leavey and Morris made a fine run but again the visitng defence just managed to save. Llanelly were playing fine football. Play continued to be of a very high order and the ball was rapidly sent from one side of the field to the other. Levi and Severns combined well and the lat- ter sent in a splendid centre. Morris with fine anticipation rushed up and sent into the net with a low shot giving Moody no chance. After this reverse the visitors had a turn at attack but the home halves cleverly changed the venue. Up to half time the Scarlets were the bet- ter side and fully deserved their lead. Half-time Score. Llanelly One Goal. Mid-Rhondda Nil. Final Score: LLANELL Y 1 goal. MID-RHONDDA 1 goal. Railwaymen as Anarchists To the Editor of the "Star." Sir, As a G.W.R. man of over 20 years standing and without a stain on my re- cord, please allow me a corner in the "Star" to protest against the Prime Minister calling us anarchists. I am no anarchist and none of my fellow workers, I am sure, answer to that description. We are law abiding citizens, fighting for our rights with the only weapon at our command-the strike. No anarchy for me if you please, nor Bolshevism either. It is pretty certain, however, that the way to manufacture anarchists and Bol- shevists in this country is to refuse to treat the workers as human beings. Fancy the Government to-day harking back to the bad old days when railway- men received 18s. a week, and reckoning increases from that standard For very shame's sake they should bury that dis- graceful figure in oblivion and determine never to resurrect it. Mr. Lloyd George is faF too fond of calling people names when they don't appear to be in a hurry to fall in with his views. I am, etc. Llanelly, A UNIFORM MAN. October 1st, 1919. [In fairness to the Prime Minister, it ought to be made clear that what he said was that the strike was the work of an Anarchist conspiracy in the ranks of Labour. It would be a disgraceful libel on a fine body of men to dub all railway- men as Anarchists, and Mr Lloyd George never did so.—Editor].

ASTERISKS. I The password of the moment—"No pay." < < The password at Burry Port is—"My bhoy is on the way." We are threatened with a shortage of beer. This is the last straw. < < Even motor hearses have been com- mandeered for the transport of food. < < There was a full attendance of Guardians at the meeting on Thursday. What's in the air ? » • • Eight char-a-bancs have been re- quisitioned to convey the Mid-Rhondda team and the supporters to Halfway to- day. The "mushrooms" are evidently growing. A cordial welcome will be extended to the Neath team this afternoon if only for the fact that it includes Dr. Gwyn Thomas. The Dr. knows Stradey pretty well by now. & A prominent Burry Portian has ex- pressed the opinion that the girls in Llanelly are more beautiful than thoee of any other town. As he is still resident in Burry Port, we mercifully suppress his name. A local bank official was among the pasengers who travelled by the first down train that left Cardiff this week. He quite enjoyed the experience and helped to organize a generous collection for the driver and other officials. < How many people, we wonder, have noticed that the liglit on Whitford Light- house is twinkling nightly again ? It was put out on the outbreak of war and has now, after over four years, resumed its function of lighting mariners to and from Llanelly on their way. There was some excitement at the People's Park at 7 o'clock this morning when a Soccer match was played between eight girls and five men from the Foundry. After a close struggle the ladies won by 3-2. No doubt we shall hear more of these fine strapping girls. < » < The "Star" excelled itself on Saturday excuse our blushes When the great crowd from Stradey was trooping through town after the match, the "Star" with not only the final score but a It column report of the game was selling like hot cakes. So great indeed, was the dem^nQ, that an extra edition had to be printed an hour later. The Llanelly friends of Mr. J. H., Thomas—and their name is legiore quite prepared to believe that in regard to the strike, he has been overborne by the extremists on the executive commit- tee. "Jimmy" is emphatically not an extremist as he showed at the Market Hall when he had to face a hostile crowd who wanted to force a strike without, in his opinion, adequate cause for such a.. step. w A correspondent writes :—The havoo caused by the strike is awful to think of, —and what will it be if the fight is pro- longed ? No one will believe that the men who decided to strike thought of this. Are not the words of Thomas Hood I applicable:— I The wounds I mi-ht have healed The human sorrow and smart And yet it never was in my soul To play so ill a part; But evil is wrought by want Of thought, As well as by want of heart.

NOTES OF THE DAY
NOTES OF THE DAY From our London Correspondent. i A DISCOURAGING OUTLOOK. The prospects for the approaching win- ter are not encouraging. Labour troubles have re-commenced, some of them on irrational grounds, leading up to the crowning disaster of a national railway strike. Prices continue to rule high; the nation's expenditure still far outstrips its revenue; Europe remains a seething cauldron of racial enmities and economic strife. These are deplorable sequels to the great war. They are, however, the natural fruit of a regime of violence accompanied by great destruc- tion of material wealth. The accumula- ted savings of generations have been de- stroyed in the past five years and the flower of Europe's manhood has perished in the terrible struggle. It will take a long time for the world to recover from these calamities. SELFISHNESS AND MATERIALISM. One of the worst results of the war is the blunting of the moral sense that has come in its train. The men who died on the battlefield gave their all for the re- demption of humanity; the men who sur- vive want to grab all they can for them- selves. All classes, rich and poor, em- ployers and employed, are afflicted by the same fierce agoism. Selfishness and materialism are rampant. The emphar sis in all classes is laid on rights, not on duties. It is an unlovely condition of af- tairs. Let us hope it is merely a pass- nig phase. If not the outlook for hu- manity is a cheerless one. THE RAIDINC OF FIUME. I D'Annunzio, the brilliant Italian lit- terateur, has raided Fiume and with his band of desperadoes remains in posses- sion of that port and city. This act of wanton defiance of the Peace Conference bodes ill for the future of south-eastern T?'7ropc. The Italian Government has behaved correctly and d' Annunzio's ex- pedition has been disavowed. All the signs, however, are that a large body of opinions approves of his exploit. Gari- baldi's son has ranged himself enthusi- astically on his side, and has made it known that d' Annunzio's raid only an- ticipated by a few days a raid that he (Colonel Garibaldi) was himself prepar- ing. It is a pretty kettle of fish. A CICANTIC MISTAKE. I The Italians are making a gigantic I mistake in arousing the enmity of the Slav peoples on the eastern shores of the Adriatic. Fiume is the natural outlet on the sea for the Southern Slavs. Their claim to Fiume and the Dalmatian coast w at once racial economic and geograph- ical. Italy, whose national renaissance was one of the features of European history in the 19th century, ought to re- member the strength and sustained passion of national feeling. It will go hard with the Italians when Southern Slavs, Serbs, Croats and Slavenos make common cause against them, and when Italy will not have a friend left in Europe to stand by her side. D'Annunzio for all his romantic posturing is doing his country a -tragic dis-service. THREECREAT EDITORS. I Three of Mr. Lloyd George's most Powerful critics in the Press have quit- ted their editorial chairs in recent. months. Mr. A. G. Gardner has vaca- ted the editorship of the "Daily News," Mr. J. A. Spender, who is going to Egypt on a Government mi-ssion, is re- linguishing temporarily the editorship of the "Westminster Gazette," and Mr. Robert Donald for daring to criticize the new Caesar found the "Daily Chronicle" jj sold above his head. To say the least of It, the simultaneous silencing of the three leading Liberal journalists is a I very remarkable confidence. GILBERT AND SULLIVAN. This week the Gilbert and Sullivan operas are revived in London. A gener- ation ago they were the rage of the town. Never has witty libretto been more feli- citously wedded to tuneful music than by Gilbert and Sullivan. Will these light operas hit the taste to-day ? I am in- clined to think that they will; for the charm of the music is unfading, and, in spite of his topical allusions, Gilbert's alliterative versos have an unchanging fascination.
MATRICULATION, SUCCESS. We are pleased to- see the name of Miss Irene Richards, daughter of Mr. Fred IRie b -tr d s, RIChards of the Bynea Steel Co., in- cluded in the list of successful candidates ot the last London Matriculation Exam- ination. Miss Richards is a pupil of St. Aloysw. College, lJOP-don.
STRIKE TO GO ON
STRIKE TO GO ON W Complete Deadlock last night. Threatened Exte»s5on Negotiations between the Government and the labour leaders, further pursuing the efforts to end the railway strike took place yesterday, and again broke down. From 5.20 to 9.15 p.m. the inter- mediaries appointed by the Transport Workers' conference were at Downing street, aooompanied by the railwaymen's leaders, and continued to use their good offices in the task of attempting to find a basis of agreement. These, unfortunately, failed. On leaving Downing street Mr J. H. Thomas stated that there had been no settlement and, subsequently, the fact was con- firmed by an official statement issued from No. 10. This intimated that on Thursday the Government proposed as a basis for nego- tiations that, on the men returning to work, negotiations should be taken up where they were broken off on Friday last. The Government, further, guaran- teed that there should be no reduction in wages until March 31st, 1920, and that at any time after December 31st, 1919., they would discuss in the circumstances then existifig a possible extension at that date. The Government, were, further pre- pared to discuss with the rairvaymen any unfairness or hardship any grade under the standardisation scheme. and in the event of failure to agree, to refer the points in dispute to arbitration. There is now every prospect of a con- siderable extension of the trou ble. The conference of the Transport Workers' Federation and other Trade Unions stands adjourned until Tuesday, when the delegates are again to meet to for- mulate proposals as to what action shall be taken to support the railway men. The Men's Case. I ———— ￼ LLANELLY WORKERS PROMISE I SUPPORT. BIG CROWD AT THE MARKET HALL I There was a crowded gathering at the Market Hall last night, presided over by Councillor Wm. Pugh, when the railway- men's case was put forward by a number of Gpeakers. The G.W.R. Male Voice Party was also in attendance and gave a rousing rendering of "Comrdaes in Arms." The Chairman, in opening the meeting, spoke of the fight the "Capitalist Press111 were putting up against the Railway- men. He assured the Railwaymen that he wholeheartedly supported their fight against the Government. Not Against the Community. ] Mr. Arthur Scott, an engine-driver, said he was there to convince them that the Railwaymen were not fighting against the community, but t'he Govern- ment. The grievance of the Railwaymen had been on the boards since 1914, but it was postponed owing to the war. In that year they appealed for better condi- tions and a reduction of the 10 hour day. It was only in February of this year that they had obtained the eight hour day. The enginemen's question had been set- tled but they were out on strike to sup- port the "bottom dog" (applause). He had served on the footplate for over 29 years, but before he reached the maxi- mum he would have to serve another 4 years (cries of "shame"). The Govern- ment in their fight had made an example of a man working in Bristol whose pre- war earnings were 31s. and the bonus amounted to 33s., making a total of 64s. To this man the Government offered a maximum of R3, that would mean a de- crease of 4s. His colleague in another dis- trict earned 32s. with a bonus of 33s., and again the Government offered him a. maximum of R3, meaning a decrease of 5s. He then referred to the intermediate grade ^hose wages varied from 21s. to 27s., but he made the average at 24s. With, the bonu.s added to this it totalled 57s. But with the Government scheme of 100 per cent. increase he would only get 48s., meaning a. reduction of 9s. a week in his wages. Then again there was the lowest grade whose pre-war earnings amounted to ms. (laughter). This plus the 33s. bonus amounted to 52s, and here again the man would lose 14s. under the Government scheme. People ask us why we engine-drivers are on strike? Do they think we are going to run trains for the benefit of such a Government (cries of "No."). It had been reported that the wages woultl not be reduced until the 31st December. If the execu- tive had allowed it to drag on until Dec- | ember what wouJd be the position ? They would have come out on strike during Christmastide when everybody wished to be home. They therefore pre- ferred coming out while the sun was shining. Concluding, he said, they were not what the Prime Minister had called them, a body of anarchists" (applause) MENACE OF THE LOW PAID MEN. Mr. Dd. Williams said that all these low paid men were a menace to the bet- ter paid. If this was the land that the Prime Minister called "fit for heroes" where men were paid L2 a week; then God help such an Empire. It was im- possible to rear a family on £ 2 a week and that was the reason he was against it. The increase in the cost of wages would only be 15 million pounds and during the war a profit of 270 million pounds was made when the railways were supposed to be run at a loss. The Government. however say that they can- not afford, yet they pay the famous "Geddes" a salary of P,5,000 a year (cries of 'shame'). This fight, he con- cluded was a struggle for humanity. No Blackleg labour. Mr. Steve Davies said that the Rail- waymen put up with many things such as the remark "Oh he's only a railway driver" (laughter). That placard an- nouncing that pay had been stopped this week was customary to them-we always live on the credit system (laughter). The "Geddes Bros." had tried the same trick in America. They granted the in- crease to engine-drivers, but left the lower grades go. In this country the engine-drivem and firemen are not going to act as blackleg labour to the N. U .R. Society (applause). I The gloves off. Mr. Dd. Williams,signalman, said that they were now in the fight, the gloves are off and it was going to be a fight with bare knuckles. He as a signalman demanded a fair living wage, and one a good deal above the poverty line. He was a practical fighter for Trades Un- ionism, in fact, the first day he com- menced work he caused a strike, and he had often been told that he had been causing strikes ever since, and what was more he always would for the "bottom dog" (applause) A signalman who held such an important position had a max- imum of C3 10s. and the Government now propose to reduce it to £ 3 Was there any sense in that Are you going to risk your lives in the hands of a signal- man who was sarving? Before his unrest they had the Police strike and the Gov- ernment offered the Police a commencing wage of f3 14s. rising to a maximum of £ 4 15s., boot rent, and clothes money if they sold their union. It was nothing but a deliberate attempt to destroy Trade Unionism. Trains had already been run by some 'Sir" and a "Captain" and the railways were there for anybody to work them as the men would not do it at a starvation wage. Strong Resolution. I Mr. Harry Bowen said that as a trade unionist he considered that he should put his shoulder to the wheel. No doubt they had all read the reports in "news"- papers condemning the Railwaymen. But it must be remembered that they were fighting a. battle for the public as well as themselves. It had been reported that a certain Coalition M.P. has been driving an engine. I wonder whether he mounted an engine near the trenches as he did at home There is again the supposed local mem- ber of parliament (cries of "who is he?") Ninety-fivo labour bills have been up in Parliament and he has never found it fit to vote for one of them. Mr.Bowen then proposed the following resolution:— That this meeting of the workers of Llanelly pledges its whole-hearted sup- port to the Railwaymen in their gal- lant fight for a standard rate-of wages and condemn the Government for its attitude of obstinate hostility. Also the capitalist press for its misrepres- entation and abuse of the men's lead- er. The meeting calls upon the work- ers to combine industrially, politically, and municipally as the only means of securing tolerable conditions now and in tho near future, and furthermore we express our unbounded confidence in the Railwaymen's leaders, Mr. J. H. Thomas and Mr. Bromley, Attack on the Press: x Mr Dillon (of the Moulders Associa- tion) seconded the resolution, Railwaymen asked for £ 2 a week and were called anarchists. The press of the country was their common enemy to-day. We as workers arc helping this enemy in allowing printers who are Trade Unionists to work against us. Mr. W. D. Jenkins (Burry Port) also spoke in support of the resolution and assured the Railway men that they were being supported by la bour. I Dr. J. H. Williams. J.P.. was accorded an excellent reception, azul in the course of a short address said they were fighting Society with a big "S." A:2 a week wae not in his opinion sufficient to maintain a human being physically' and mentally. He said so because he could not do it himself. He advised then to stand firm and united and the future would be one j of happiness. | The resolution was then put to the j meeting and carried unanimously. j Chairman's Appeal. I The Chairman made a -o-verfvl app' 1 i to the public to Keep ?rfectly calm I during the strike so that no excuse could be made for bringing soldiers into the town. He did not want to see the scenes that occurred during the Railway Strike in 1911 repeated (hear. hear). I TRAINS W -— I I TRAINS LAST N)CHT. There was only mild excitement on the part of juveniles and womenfolk last I night when two passenger trains passed I through the station, the first at 6.15 p.m. I Both trains carried passengers, but I only a few left the train at Llanelly. The Express train at 8.30 was very full, but there was no demonstration of any sort. Its departure was hailed with subdued expressions of tbanL fulness by the womenfolk at the Glan nor Crosing. I ——— .——— I TO-DAY'S. TRAINS. Two trains have passed through Llan- elly this morning. The first was a dowu. train proceeding to Neyland, left at about 10.30 a.m. It did not convey many passengers, most of the load being made up of perishable goods. I At 11 o'clock traffic was again held up in Station road owing to the level cross- ing gates being open fo • a train. A few minutes elapsed before in up train of six coaches steamed into th,. station, its des- tination being Swansea. A few passen- gers boarded the traí?è,; ,,1,tst a small number also alighted. This train, like the other, was heavily laden with acca- mulated luggage, which, as it was being discharged, was guarded by three sol- diers bearing rifles with fixed bayonets, and wearing steel helmets. A guard mounted the footplate as the train moved out. The proceedings of unloading the luggage, etc., were watched by a crowd from the bridge. Another train is ex- pected to leave for Swansea at about 3 o'clock this afternoon. 1 K
