THE gas question -in the Ehondda Valley does not seem to be much nearer a settle- ment than when we last called attention to the subject. The Rhondda Valley Chamber oi Trade some time ago passed a resolution for the discontinuance of the use of gas by private consumers on and after the 15th instant, in consequence of the Ystrad Gas Company not having complied with the memorial for a reduction in the price of gas. The Treherbcrt Chamber of Trade had been asked to co-operate, but not till the evening of the day on which the use of the gas was to be discontinued did the latter chamber met to discuss the question. The chamber passed a resolution to the effect that a letter should be sent to the secretary of the company, asking if 'the directors of the company would receive a deputation from the chamber on the subject, and if so when it would be convenient for the deputation to wait on the directors. This course of action means that the Tre- herbert Chamber resents the action of the Rhondda Valley Chamber in fixing a date for the discontinuance of the use of gas ll1 the district. Will the gascompany's directors give any more heed to the Treherbert Chamber than they did to the Rhondda Valley Chamber, Not so long as they see the two bodies in antagonism. What will the Treherbert Chamber gain by any more delay? Nothing whatever. It is plain that the directors of the Gas Company will yield to nothing but firm pressure brought to bear upon them in the shape of largely diminished profits. The attitude of the Treherbert Chamber seems a very strange one, such as would almost warrant the sus- picion that some of its members are not without interest in the gas company.
