WEEKLY COMMENTS. ".1 THE question of the Llanelly Border Children I is attracting a great deal of attention both in this County and also in the neighbour- ing County of Glamorgan, On Friday last our Swansea contemporary, The Cambria Daily Leader," made some rather caustic remarks with regard to the extremely foolish and unjustifiable attitude assumed by a majority of the so-called Liberal members, and, of course-it goes without saying— the Tory members of the Carmarthenshire Education Authority towards the Llanelly Border Children. We are glad, however, to see that the Board of Education have at I last decided to take the matter up seriously, and have already addressed a rather strong communication--a copy of which may be seen in another column—to the County Authority. The Board threaten to take immediate action against the Authority un- less they can satisfy the Board that they have accommodation for the 2GO children who have been turned out of the Town Schools within reasonable distances of the homes of the children. The truth of the matter is, the County Authority, with the sole object of misleading the Board, have misrepresented the true facts of the case. This has been done to such an extent that the Board at last became dubious, and they did not hesitate to inform the County Authority that they were of opinion that the statements which' they had pre- viously made were "not well founded." Notwithstanding this justifiable rebuke, the County Authority, at their meeting on Thursday last, listened attentively and ap- provingly to Ii reply which the Clerk had > previously drafted, which was quite as mis- leading and erroneous as any of the pre- vious statements which had been sent to the Board. Fortunately, however, it was not decided that the reply should be sent, but a Committee was appointed to visit the Furnace, district for the purpose of finding temporary accommodation for the education of the children. We are given to understand that this Committee will visit the place to-day. The Committee will consist of Messrs. John IJloyd Chair- man David Evans, Vice-Chairman Henry Jones Davies, Glyneiddan; Wm. N. Jones, Tirydail; and W. B. Jones, Llaneliv, who will be accompanied, of course, by the Clerk, Mr. J-. W. Nicholas, The parents are naturally looking forward most anxiously to the result of this visit, as the children have already been for the last seven weeks on the road, and, as the Board very pro ptrly point out, the County Authority up to the present have taken no legal steps to enforce their attendance at school. The Authority persists in saying that they have ample accommodation for the children, and yet. on Thursday last, they deemed it pru- I dent to appoint a Committee for the pur- pose of providing temporary accommoda- tion. If they have ample accommodation already, what necessity can there be for temporary accommodation, and where does j the need come in for building commodious school premises for the district ? The truth of the whole matter is, that a Com- mittee was elected some years ago to go into the question of arranging terms with Llanelly. When the Committee was called, the only member who put in an appearance was Mr. John Lloyd, and he proposed, seconded, and unanimously resolved that the Committee recommend that not one single penny should be paid by the County Authority to Llanelly for the education of the Border Children. This recommendation was adopted by the Authority, and Mr. John Lloyd, as Chair- man of the Authority, has consistently ruled out of order any proposition which has the remotest tendency to re-opon negotiations with the Llanelly Urban Edu- cation Committee. It is really distressing that it oecomes necessary for the Board of Education to take any drastic measures to compel an Authority, which is supposed to be composed almost entirely of Liberal members, to do their duty towards the children of the working classes. If the Authority was composed entirely of the most red-hot Tories of the country, whose sole object was to trample under foot the children of the toiling masses, they could never have treated the children worse than they are being treated by this so-called Liberal Authority. We hope the Board of Education will not lose sight of this de- faulting Authority, but that the strong arm of the Law will be made use of in the near future to bring them to a sense of their duty, and to justly carry out their obligations to the children of this part of the County. "h'
WHEN the history of Llanelly is re-written, last Tuesday will stand out prominently as a red-letter day in the annals of Judaism in our town, for it was on that day the Chief Rabbi of the whole of the Hebrew Congregations of the British Em- pire had the pleasant duty of paying- us a visit for the purpose of opening the first Synagogue here Fifty years ago, I the Rev. Dr. Adler (then very young), in consequence of the illness of his father, who was at the time Chief Rabbi, per- formed a similar ceremony in Swansea, and last week, on his way to Llanelly, he had the intense pleasure of celebrating its jubilee. The Synagogue at Swansea was opened on the 25th September, 1859; therefore, its jubilee would not fall due until Sep- tember next, but probably the Swansea Jews took advantage of the Chief Rabbi's visit to Llanelly to celebrate the jubilee. We, as Christians, rejoice in the know- ledge that our Redeemer has come, and that he now liveth and sitteth at the right hand of God interceding on our behalf, but to the Jews the Messiah is to come, and their continual supplications are May the Redeemer come unto Zion" We cannot blame them if they are unable to see that He has come, but all Christians can pray that they may be brought to the glorious light of the gospel. They were tbechosen people of God, to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the services of God, and the I promises; whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen." We wish them every success in their Synagogue, but we would be de- lighted to find that they had recognised our Saviour as their Saviour too.

Llanelly Prize Choir. I The Llanelly Royal Prize Choir, who will shortly tour America., held a grand evening concert at Penclawdd on Saturday evening. As significant of the. reputation of the choir, the sacred edifice of Bethel Chapel was crowded. The different renderings of the choir were superb, and the singing of the artistes, who, by the way, are well-trained singers, was all that could be desired. The choir intend commencing their tour in Sep- tember, and an extensive supply of .engage- ments has already been received.
The Tinplate Trade. I CONCILIATION AT WORK. I The annual meeting of the Welsh Tinplat-o Conciliation Board was held at Swansea on Tuesday. Mr. -Trubsliaw mentioned that during the year there had been small differences, but they had been dealt with by committees. He understood there were claims to be put ill. He had hoped there would not be any at all. He trusted, however, they would come to an arrangement that day for another twelve months, 80 that buyers would know that there would be no reduction of wages, and that the men would be assured of continuous em- ployment. He thought it their duty to come to a satisfactory conclusion forthwith of a settlement until June of next year (applause). Mr. John Hodge, speaking on behalf of himself and colleagues, expressed satisfaction that Mr. Trubsliaw was still able to preside over th-em, and they all hoped he would be long- spared to continue to act as their chair- man (applause). Mr. Hbdge said he would re-echo the sentiments expressed with regard I,t-) iho, harmonious working that had taken place during the last year. Mr. Hodge then submitted a number of claims on behalf of the; workmen The position now is that the question of 2 peTe-ont. for waste will be made the subject of a ballot by the millmen. Should they vote for a withdrawal of the claim, the wage rate will be signed and industrial peace for ano- tlier year practically secured. On the other hand, should the millmen by vote insist on their present, attitude and no agreement be come to by the 30th of June, the present wage agreement will come to all end.
Proposed Passenger Line. I ———— MYNYDD M AWR COMPANY BROACH THE QUESTION. I At the general meeting of the proprietors of the Llanelly and Mynydd Mawr Co. on Monday, Mr. D. Kydd presiding, Mr. T. Ar- nold asked whether it would not be worth while: commencing a passenger service on t'he Mynydd Mawr line. He thought it would be I an advantage to the shareholders and the dis- trict generally. The Chairman explained that the directors were considering the matter. There was, of course, the initial trouble of seeing about the capital to be considered, as well as that of getting passengers. He really thought, con- sidering the developments along the Mynydd Mawr line, that. the time was fast coming when it would give a good financial return I to get a passenger service on the line, and lie did not. think it. would be lost sight of. Mr. Arnold said they might also consider the question, of running motor trains, as was done between Llantrisant and Pontypridd. Motor trains had the advantage of not re- quising stations. The Chairman: That is a matter of detail. Mr. Arnold said that one company had en- quired of him whether it was possible to get I their workmen conveyed by their Mynydd Mawr train to their colliery. Mr. John Davies: We are prepared to do that, provided we are allowed to deal with I their mineral traffic. Mr. Gower Bevan said capitalists would be more disposed to invest their money in pite in the district if they could get railway faci- lities to the district. The Chairman said every mineral company ran workmen's trains. I Mr. Bevan: Ah! yes, workmen's trains, but I am thinking of passenger trains. There are some speculative people, who, if they could go and visit, a district every day, would in- vest their money in collieries in that district, and would not do so' otherwise. The Chairman said the directors were con sidering the matter from every standpoint,
QUARRYMAN RUSHED. ACCIDENT AT THE FURNACE. On Tuesday afternoon, Lt quarryman named Warlow, residing at Lower Ann Street, sus- tained a severe injury whilst working at Mr. Mercer's quarry at the Furnace. He was se- verely crushed through a fall of stone, and as a result his spine was broken. He was taken to the Hospital immediately.
THEFT OF WHISKY. i DEFENDANTS PUT ON PROBATION. j I At the Police Court on Wednesday, Frank Williams and William James Richards, Caro- line Street, were charged with stealing a bottle of whisky from the Albion Inn, Marine Street. P.C. Thomas said that, when arrested, one of the defendants said. "I do not remember anything. I was too drunk. I did not re- j member that I had done it until I was tuld about it." Inspector Nicholas, who arrested Richards, said that when charged he stated that he did not. remember what had happened. Phoebe Rees, Albion Inn, stated that on May 11th. the defendants were served with a pint of beer each. In consequence of the defendants' refusal tr. pay her for the beer I she refused to supply them with any more. She then left the bar, leaving the servant there. On account of a communication sent, ¡' to her by the servant she went to the bar, and found that a bottle of whiskey was mis- sing from the shelf. Blodwen Richards corroborated the evidence of the previous witness. Both defendants pleaded guilty, and the Bench ordered the defendants to be put on probation for a period of twehe. months, and to pay 10s. each towards the costs.
REMARKABLE FAMILY FROM NEW i ZEALAND. -0- The great attraction at Llanelly May Fair t will be the visit of the West-wood Family from New Zealand, two of the having grown to be the tallest, heaviest, and mosi beautiful children in the world." Wilfrid, a boy 01 11 years, weighs over 22 stone, is 5ft. 6Ain. tall, and heavier than bis father and mother combined. His s?htcr. Ruby, is fifteen years, and weighs o\er 17 stone.

Alleged Theft. j LLWYNHENDY MAN SENT TO PRISON. At the Police Court on Monday, William J. Harries, labourer, Llwynhendy, was charged with stealing a quantity of lead, the property of Thomas Arnold. P.C. Thomas Davies, Llwynhendy, stated that in consequence of a complaint made on the 15th instant, he accompanied Tlios Arnold to Seren Cottages, Cwmfelin, and was pointed out n room Iren.) which a quantity of lead had been siolc.n. Arnold showed him four rolls of lead with a piece cut off the end of each. He asked Mrs Dymock, in the presence of the defendant, if she knew who had been cutting the lead, and she replied that she did ¡ not know, adding that "William John Harries was in the house "when she was out. Harries stayed at the house in the day, but slept at his parents' house. The piece of lead pro- dueed appeared to have been cut off the rolls at CVnifelin. He cautioned and charged the prisoner, who said, "I will give Billy Jones a d—— good hiding after this, for carrying tales" Harries added: I have nothing more to say. If Keenan says I sold it. it is a lie." On the application of the police. Harries was remanded until Wednesday. -The case was resumed on Wednesday. P.C. Thomas Davies said that at 10 o'clock that mbrning he went to the cell in the Police Station, where the defendant was in custody. He said, I am going to speak the truth. I cut the lead with a hammer and chisel some' day last week, and I sold it to Keenan. Give me a chance to-day, and I will j never steal any more." W. Keenan, Upper Water Street, said that the defendant called at his stores, and said j he had some rags, bones, and old iron for sale. Witness purchased them, and in the evening when the hag was emptied he found the' lead rolled up amongst the contents. Defendant pleaded guilty, and Supt. Rogers reported previous convictions. I' Air. Wilkine: You have a bad record, and have been to prison before. You will have to go to gaol for two months, and we hope this will be the means, of putting you right.
ELECTRIC LIGHT. SITE FOR GENERATING STATION. It appears from the official minutes Dr the II Harbour Trust that at a meeting- of the Elec- j tric Generating Station Committee it was de- cided to recommend to the Trust that site No 1 be let to the company for the term of 99 I years, at an annual rental of £ 100, such ren- tal to include the right to use water tor cir- culating purposes from the North Dock.

Trew, Swansea, the Welsh capfiin, were Mr. D. Oliver Rees. of Llanelly, and Mr. E. Gra- velle, Kidwelly. A gentleman who is attached to the leeal profession was found a few days ago on the- railway platform at Pantyffynon, and the porters, mistaking him undoubtedly for a parcel, dispatched him by the first available luggage train to Llanelly. Two hundred men at OkehampTon pledged themselves solemnly not to enter a public- house for throe months unless the price of beer was reduced to its pre-Budget figure. As a result of this the publicans gave way, and agreed to retail the beer at the old price. The Education Committee have decided to resuscitate the drill competition, which they have resolved to hold in the Market Pavilion on July 20th.

One day this week on^ of the gentlemen who was commissioned to canvass the town with a view to selling tickets for one of the -forthcoming conceits, found, after a great deal of persuasion, that he had lost his plan. What a sad predica- ment John Bright was a scion -of a famous Somer- set house. He. used to tell a story of how a barber, who was cutting his hair, once said to him. You 'aye a large 'ead, sir. It is a good thing to 'ave a large 'ead, for a large- 'ead means a large brain, and a huge brain is the most useful thing a man (,,111 'ave, as it nourishes the roots of the Tr ivmud 1)0 interesting to know exactly what restrictions the old type of Puritans would impose, if they had the chance, upon work on the Sabbath. The Sabbath in Puritan New England set forth a case in which, in 1656, an unfortunate cipt.ain was set in stocks for two hours at Boston on con- viction of "lewd and unseemly behaviour. His offence was that, after three years' ab- sence. he kissed his wife in public on the Sabbath day. The construction of the new Y.M.C.A. build- ing is to be commenced next month.

Whilst walking leisurely along one of the meadows on the outskirts of the town they were en- countered by a ferocious-looking bull, who stared, ominously at them. The young man, S who should have been more valiant than his | fiancee, commenced beating a hasty retreat, j but (lie courageous lady procured his walking | stick and goaded the intruder until he ran for dear life to an adjoining field, whilst, her erratic and wary lover lied in ambush. For- sooth. to strong hearts difficulties exist only, to be overcome. LINES.
