WEEKLY COMMENTS. THE value of a sound lung has been brought forcibly to public notice during the last few years by the attention given and the erection of sanatoria throughout the length and breadth of the land. What applies to the individual lung must do so equally, or even still more forcibly, to what may be regarded as a combination of in- dividual lungs in a town lung or public park. The worth of the unit, and the combination of units, is so very clear, that it is quite unnecessary to enter upon any proof of it. Everywhere throughout the Kingdom, the fact has been recognised in the laying-out of town and city parks. It has been so in Llanelly in the abstract, but has not yet found expression in the concrete of fact. Now, however desirable and admirable a park may be in the abstract, it is far more so in the reality. A com- fortably-cushioned seat in the abstract, overlooking a stretch of beautiful country, or, maybe, the sea, on a delightful summer's evening, is not of anything like I the same value as a deal bench in the ¡ reality and children do not swing on I swings in the abstract, nor do they t5 play cricket on abstract fields. The reality is ¡ always needed, and Llanelly is short of this. It is perfectly true that we have a I so-called" Public Park around the Town Hall. We have no desire to cast an aspersion in any way upon it. The best has, undoubtedly, been done in the limited circumstances of the case, and we do not hesitate to say that the small area of ground at the disposal of the Urban Council has been exceedingly well laid out. The grass is green and well kept, the shrubs well looked after and thriving, the paths nicely curved, and the seats com- fortable. The band also plays—and plays remarkably well—two evenings a week but in spite of all this, there is a "please- keep-off-the-grass air about the place, and "dogs are not admitted," and one feels where lie is obliged to keep off. the grass, and cannot be followed by his dog, it is not a public park in the trnc sense. The limitations of space preclude it in the Town Park, we admit, and we also aamit that it cannot be very well extended I without trenching upon the space allotted to the attractive town fairs, and the possi- ￼ bilities of a future cattle fair other than I that held in the mai n street. It is true, I that for nine months in the year it is I alleged that the River Lliedi runs bard by, but we scarcely believe it would be ad- vanced with any seriousness that the inclusion of its course and banks would add any watery or sylvan charm to the extension of the present Public Park.
THE situation of the present Park is too low-lying, to say nothing of the smoke— however indicative of ample bread and cheese—which drifts across it from the neighbouring works during prevailing winds. From a health point of view, the town stands in need of something more ample, and breezy, and higher-lying. We possess all these conditions in a marked degree in I BrYllCaerau, It is a most admirable site I for a public park. It is outside the town, I yet within a distance very easily covered, i and, in the near future-so we are in- I formed—probably an electric tramway will be passing its boundary walls. There is field space for swings, see-saws, cricket, bowls, and tennis; the air is pure and sweet for those of mature years, who would I prefer looking on than actively joining f in such sports aud recreations; and the I views generally are all that can reason- ably be expected and desired. We lay stress upon the elevated position from a point of health and cheerfulness, and also of contrast with that of a town lying at the lowest level of ail- sea level. The need of contrast with the latter is in- stinctively acknowledged by the popular I periodical visits to the Wells Llangam- inarch, Llanwrtyd, and Llandrindod, and I here we could have the same benefit of ¡I similar change, although in a less degree, every evening. It would be a change doing equal good also to many hundreds j of our townsmen whose means and con- I ditions of labour will not admit of their going to 41 The 'Wells" at all. It would be, as it were, living in a house with ¡ steps leading up to the front door, instead I of in one with steps leading down to it.
¡ • I We emphatically advance the advisability of the Urban Council acquiring Bryn- cacran Castle and its grounds as a Town I Park whilst it is possible to do so. At present it is possible, at doubtless a fair and reasonable price, to become possessed of it, and this would be preferable to re- gretting later on that we allowed it to be covered with brick and mortar. Far I smaller and less prosperous towns than Lianelly are far and away ahead of it in I the wise provision of open spaces devoted ¡ to the cheerful side of life, without which no life can hope to regard itself as com- plete. We hope that those members of 1 the Urban District Council who have the slightest regard for the health of the I people, who are in any way anxious to provide the town "with healthy lungs, will not allow this golden opportunity to Blip through their fingers, but that they will I press forward the rights of the people to J open spaces and breathing places, After the working men have been confined within the walls of the works or the factory, the workshop or the place of business, the office or the dungeons of the deep, for eight and even twelve and fourteen hours a day, it would be a boon and a blessing- to them to have a place where they would have a right to go to breathe the fresh and pure air on a high elevation, and thus befit themselves to return to their homes, the works, or the place of business greatly refreshed and invigorated.

The Llanelly Royal Choir, who have entered in the Chi-8£ choral competition at the London National Eisteddfod, held a public rehearsal at the Market Hall on Tuesday evening. The singing of the choir, which was under the conductorship of Mr. John Thomas, was of a ( high order, and betokened signs of arduous training. They executed the various test pieces in an excellent manner. Next Sunday evening, at the Tabernacle, Mr T. J. Owen, will preach. He is the son of the. renowned preacher, the late Rev. O. R. Owen, Liverpool—"Owen Glandwr" as he was familiary known to the whole of Wales. His son is only a little over fifteen years of age, and attends the Old College School, Carmar- then, at present. His visit to Llanelly will. no doubt, interest the crowds that admired and appreciated his father. D. Mansel (late of Golden Fleece) has opened at Cowell Street and Market Entrance, with a new stock of Drapery and Millinery Goods. Great crowds were drawn to the Tabernacle on Saturday and Sunday last to the anniver- sary services, when the eminent Welsh preachers, the Rev.s Peter Price, M.A., Dow- lais, and J. :1. Williams. Pentre, officiated, Powerful sermons were preached, and it was felt by all that the Gospel was at its best, with an unction from on high.

Intimidation of the Press. I RE INTERMEDIATE MANAGERS. At the monthly meeting of the Urhan Dis- trict. Council on Monday evening last, Mr.. E. T. Jones, presiding, with regard to il?-Le ap- The Clerk said that with regard to the ap- pointment of Mr. Tregoning as a manager of the Intermediate School, he had received a letter from him, in which he thanked the Council for re-appointing him as one of their representatives. He did not, however, feel justified in accepting the position for another term. He feared the Council overlooked the advantage of having a second member of the County Education Committee as one of their representatives. Mr. H. D. Rees proposed that Mrs Br. Lloyd be appointed in his stead. 0- Mr. Joseph Roberts seconded. Mr Nathan Griffitius regarded what appeared in the newspapers nothing but intimidation. If the press would intimidate some of the other members, the press nor nobody else would intimidate him. He opposed the re- election. of Mrs. Lloyd at the last meeting on principle, and he was going to do the same thing that evening. Mrs. Lloyd was a lady whom he did not know. He was not aware, until he saw it in the newspapers, that she was a sister of Mr. John Lloyd, of Carmar- then. He was one who regretted that Mr. Tregoning could not accept the. position, and had always lookod upon him as a gentleman. As an amendment lie would move that Mrs. J". Walter Thomas be appointed manager in lieu of Mr. Tregoning. He did not think they should go out of their way to appoint, repre- sentatives when, they had excellent- members on their own body. Mr. D. R. Jones- nsked why they should change their attitude that evening. The Clerk informed them at the last meeting that they could not appoint two women. The Chairman said the Clerk of the Inter- mediate School, acting upon the instructions of the Chairman, wrote to the Education Department m to the correct interpretation of the rule, and as a result they learned there was nothing to prevent their appointing two wa, ti7, f)r,:?verit appointiDL-1 t?VO Mr. J. Walter Thomas assured fhe Council that Mrs. Thomas would not act. It was decided to re-appoint Mrs. Lloyd, Mr Nathan Griffiths voting against. Mr. Nathan Griffiths: I should take a note of i t. •The, Chairman: I think the Council have made a very wise selection. Mr. Nathan Griffiths: It is a matter of opinion The Chairman: Taking into consideration the services she has rendered in the past. Mr Nathan Griffiths: Don't soft-soap (laugh- ter). It was also decided that a. reword be made of the services rendered by Mr. Tregoning.
IYoung Lad's Temptation. I WISHED TO SEE HIS MOTHER. I ,V .L- .c._u k U- t. At the Police Court on Friday Horace Shel- don, a young lad of about 14 years of age, was charged with entering and breaking into Gwernyewm Farm, Llangennech, and stealing £4 10s. therefrom. P.S. Morgan deposed that about 8.30 p.m. on the previous evening he saw the defen- dant in Rhandir Terrace, Llangennech, when he gave him a letter from his employer, Thos Thomas, Gwernyewm Farm. While witness was perusing the letter the defendant said, "Some man has been stealing money from our house while the master and mistress were away." Witness enquired where he was working, and he replied that he was cutting ferns in the fields. He did not see anybody about, except two men passing Tyreglwys, but they did not enter the house. When Mrs. Thomas arrived home she called, him into the house, and they both searched it. While doing so, he (defendant) saw a man behind the door. Witness enquired how the man was dressed, and defendant replied that lie had black clothes on. When asked for a de- scription of the man, defendant said, "I only saw his legs. He. had black clothes on." Later, Mrs. Thomas said that he did not tell her that he had seen a man's legs behind the door, and the defendant rejoined, "I did not see one. I told an untruth." Witness exa- mined the premises, and found everything in order with the exception of the middle drawer in the front kitchen. He found the bolt out- wards, and the drawer when locked could be opened without the key by pressing it down- wards. In consequence of Mrs. Thomas' re- ma-rk that she had found the window open, witness examined it, and found there was a gap between the window-fastener, and it could be opened with a knife or a piece of wood easily. Mrs. Thomas told witness, in defendant's presence, that £ 4 10s in gold were missing. He asked the defendant if he knew anything about it, and he replied, I know nothing about it. I have not been near the house." About 8.30 on the following morning witness saw the defendant- and a John Rees, I, brother-in-la.w of the occupier of Gwernyewm Farm, in the farmyard. Witness told Rees II that he was going to Tyreglwys to make en- quiries, and would call on his way back. When he returned, about an hour later, Rees and the defendant came out of the kitchen to meet him. Rees said in the defendant's presence, "He has admitted everything to me. He went in through the window, and took the money from the drawer." Defendant then said, I will tell the truth. I went in through the window. I pushed the fastener back with a thin piece of stick. I opened the drawer with the same stick, and took the I money, all gold, from a little box, and left some money behind. I went out through the window afterwards, and I have placed the I money somewhere in the field where I was working." Subsequently, witness and John Rees, accompanied by the defendant, went in search of the money, and after searching for some time the defendant said he had given the money to John Jones, Tyreglwys, to keep for him. Witness took the defendant to Jones, who said that he and his brother were I talking to the defendant the previous day, but he did not give him any money to keep, whereupon the defendant said the money was in the field. After a further search the de- fendant said that he must have placed it in the rickvard. He could not exactly remem- her where he had put it. Witness had not vet recovered the money. In reply to the charge the defendant said, "I took the money, but I do not know where I put it. It is the first time for me to steal." On the way to the Police Station the defendant said, I am sorry that I have taken the money, because Mr. and Mrs. Thomas have been very kind to me. When they went away yesterday- something tempted me to take the money, be- cause I wanted to see my mother." Inspector Jones applied for a remand until Wednesday. Mr. Thomas Jones: What about bail for him ? Inspector Jones objected, in view of the fact that they had not recovered the money. P.S. Morgan said the defendant had been in the Industrial School. Swansea, for some time for mitching. but he told P.C. Hopkins that he was sent to Swansea School for steal- ing chocolate. The Clerk said it had been recommended by the High Court that they should grant bail. 0 Inspector Jones said they had been trying to have the defendant to tell them where the money was. In reply to Mr. Thomas Jones defendant said, The money is in the rickvard. I am telling you the truth." It was ultimately decided to allow the de- fendant out on bail in the sum of £ 20, or in two sureties of P,10 each. The case was resumed at the Juvenile Court on Wednesday, before Messrs. Dan Williams and John Clement. The Superintendent, of the Swansea Indus- trial School said the defendant was out on licence. P.S. Morgans's evidence was read over, and lie added that the money had not been re- covered. Margaretta Thomas, wife of Thos. Thomas, said the defendant had been employed on the farm since October 26th., and came there from the Industrial School. On the 2nd June wit- ness and her husband went away, and Ifcfore they left she went to the drawer, and left there P,4 10s. in gold, and fifteen shillings, in a wooden box. She then locked the. drawer, and put the key in a little jug on the dresser. When she left, about 2.30, the defendant was '? ￼ l ie retuine(i working in one of the fields. She returned about 3.30, and found the drawer open, and the £ 4 10s. was missing. She subsequently called the defendant from the field, and re- quested him to close the bedroom window. On the way upstairs she mentioned to the de- fendant what had happened, and he said, "I did not know that there were any burglars here." The; defendant. than went into the bedroom, and said, "Oh! dear; there is a man behind the door." She sent him for assistance, and kept both doors under obser- vation. While he was away no one left the house. Mrs. Rees and her son returned with the defendant, and they made a search, but failed to find anyone. Sheldon had been pretty good since lie had been with her. Samuel Johnson Edwards, superintendent of Bonymaen Industrial Schools, said that the defendant left the School in October to go to the husband of the last witness. He would be sixteen years old in November next. Wit- ness did not think the defendant realised the seriousness of the offence owing to a defi- ciency in iiitclleet. Defendant pleaded guilty. The Bench adjourned the case until Friday I and warned the defendant to tell the police where lie had put the money, so that they could deal leniently with him.

I A considerable quantity of tLe timber, for 1 instance, will be made into tinplafco boxes, and the tinplate market is woiketl on small margins oE profit which make the cost of the b< x a coasiiiei- t It is, of course, a still greater gain to have the scrap and pig iron (?hich go to the making of ￼ the tinned plate) deiivere? nt the work? as cheaply ￼ as possible. I -0- ¡ The greater part of this, it is h"u(>, is not brought I into the North Dock so far, but it is probably brought into the other docks more cheaply than if j the North Dock was not in existence. If all the points of tiesv in favour of the North i Dock were thus taken ioto account, it is probable j that., even in its present stoge of development, the f rate in its suppoit does not by Einy mene raise to 2s. I When it lia-i developed 4o Hs full working I capacity, it is equally certain that it will realiy mean a reduction in the general rate, or, what t » comes to much the same thing, powerful aid to a successful and thriving manufacturing to wo in keeping its rates from rising ¡ -0 ) The people of Llanelly in a general way probably realize this, as good commercial common sense, and t it accounts both for the readiness with which they pledged the second Is. of lie 2s. rate for the purpose of developing their unde taking, and the II interest they taka in the affairs of the Harbour generally.
j MUSTARD AND CRESS. I MUSTARN CRESS. Several persons were summoned at the Police Court on Wednesday for keeping a dog without a licence. Mr. Herbert Newark will present the Lib- rary Committee to-morrow with a portrait of the late Col. W. Buckley Roderick. The game between Llanclly and Llandovery was off on Saturday, on account of the latter failing to get a team together. The Bishop of St. David's, at an ordination on Trinity Sunday, licensed the Rev. J. Ll. Evans to the curacy of St. Paul's, Llanelly. The duties of registrar of the County Court were performed on Monday by Mr. Lewis Bishop, brother of His Honour Judge Bishop. A Welsh schoolmaster, who has been i-iead of the same school for forty-four yaars, states he is now teaching the grand-children of his first pupils. The Llanelly Imperial Band, whic-li was re- cently formed in the town, contemplate enter- ing in the various band contests that- will be held on divers dates. Some prominent local elocutionists intend competing at the London National next week, including Mr. David Owen and Miss Bessie Smith, Seaside. The Band of the 4th Battalion Welsh Regi- ment will play selections of music in the Town Hall Grounds this (Thursday) evening) at 7.30 p.m. (weather permitting). Miss Smart: "But if marriage is a failure, Mr Levi, you have at least a substantial asset in Mrs Levi and the children."—Levi: "Asset! Asset! you call 'em—those are liabilities." Whilst shooting big game in British East Africa, Mr. Roosevelt, ex-president of the United States, was the guest of Mrs. Harris, Nairobi, daughter of Mrs. Jenkins, Llangen- deime. Mr. David Harries. A.C., who was choir- master at Dock Chapel for twenty years, was presented with .a. beautiful illuminated ad- dress on Tuesday evening, in recognition of his long and faithful services to the chapel. Congratulations to Mr. William Rogers, Pwll, upon his appointment as ch-eckweigher at the Grovesend Colliery, near Gcrseinon. He secured 105 votes against his opponent's 66. Ahout. two months .ago he w is eiectca to a similar position at Maesteg out of 99 can- didates. The children of the local Band of Hope Union held a succ-essful demonstration on Saturday last. Many thousands took part, and the procession was of considerable length. Preceding the procession were the Llanelly Town and Salvation Army Bands, who played selections along the route. Whilst the owner of a dog was pleading its innocence at the County Court on Monday last., with regard t.o the killing of sheep, it is alleged that this innocent pet was actually perpetrating a similar deed at the very same time. We are deceived in our friends and those whom we desire to shield very often. The plucky Llandebie collier who made a leap from the balloon at Carmarthen was in great form when descending through the clouds. The aeronaut, looking down, and observing that the parachute had opened safely, shouted to him, "Are you alright?" and the cheery voice rang up through space, In the pink When the case of the Border children was baing heard last Tuesday week at the Town Hall Mr. Edmunds taunted Mr. Nicholas with endeavouring to play to the gallery. Mr. Nicholas replied, That is no good. for I know that the whole of the gallery is on your side. Mrs. Dr. Lloyd was the only occu- pant of the gallery at the time. The Llanelly Town Band will play the fol- lowing programme of music at the Town Hall Grounds on Saturday at 7 p.m., and on Tues- day at 7.30 p.m. :-Marc-li valse. Liebe- strailm" (Czibulka): duetto "Love's Serenade" (Marks); overture; "Sorrow and Joy" (Carl I-Tause); gavotte, "La Comtesse" (Dodswell); selection, "lone" (Petrella); "God save the King." Conductor—Mr. J. Samuel. Two young clerks in the employ of a local brewery were the recipients of a neatly packed parcel one day this week, per railway car- riage, for which they had to pay fourpence. They cautiously untied the parcel., and an in- tolerable aroma emanated from the contents within, and an examination revealed the fact that some of their confreres had played a hoax upon them, and sent, t'hem a mackerel each, which had left the waters fur a con- siderable time. At the Bradford A.M.C. last week Mr W. B. Jones thanked the Board of Directors for com- plying \\ith the request of the delegates from the Principality, by allowing the Welsh em- blem and motto to figure amongst the others on the Unity Almanack. He should, never- theless, like to see- the motto correctly given, and the words correctly spelt. The Grand Master promised that this would lie seen to, if Ero. Jones supplied them with the correct version, which Mr. Jones promptly did. When Mr. John John, Parceithyn, heard that the Llanelly Urban Council had refused to re-elect Mrs. Dr. Lloyd on the Board of Governors of the Intermediate School, for which she had done so much, he exclaimed, Well, they've killed the hen that laid the. golden eggs." Since then the Urban Council found they had committed a. blunder, and rhey set about applying artificial respiration to resuscitate their victim; but it was "Too late." The Council generally manages things in this way. Mr. Nathan Griffiths waxed eloquent at the Council meeting on Monday over the counsel's fees in connection with the Paliamentary Bill. It will be observed in another column that the Parliamentary Agent's account amounts to nearly one thousand pounds, apart from the remaining hundreds for the other counsel, and this, added to the Clerk's and councillors' trips to London, must in- evitably reach a colossal amount. The many friends of Mr. John Daniell (and Mrs. Daniell, New Road) will b.e pleased to learn that he has been promoted to the posi- tion of chief assayer and metallurgical chemist to the Amalgamated Crown Gold Mines ef Johannesburg. Mr. Daniell is very well known in educational circles, being exa- miner of the matriculation and diploma examinations in science and physics. Before the War he was lecturer to the Council of, Education, Johannesburg. He was nominated as Progressive candidate for the first Parlia- ment, of the Transvaal, which honour he re- fused. He was again nominated by Lord Sel- oourn-e and others for the Upper House, but was not selected by the offiejalQ in England, Boer being selected. He is the son of the Late Mr. Meyler Daniell, Hendre, and brother to Dr. Alfred Daniel, barrister, Lincoln's Inn.
PRESENTATION. On Tuesday evening an interesting meeting was held at Dock Chapel, when Mr. David Harries, A.C., New Dock Road, who recently resigned his position of choir conductor, after twenty years of faithful service, was presented with a beautiful illuminated address, executed by Mr. T. Rby? DaYie.?, Vaughan Street, in' recogniticn of his long and faHhful services. ¡ Mrs. Harries vms also presented with a silver, tea and coffee service, with a suitable inscrip- tion. The address was read and presented by Mrs. D. Lewis, wife of the pastor, and the presentation of the tea and coffee service was II made by the Rev. D. Lewis, after which the recipients responded. Many eulogistic speeches were delivered, interspersed with' I solos, duetts, and instiumental music.
