￼ COAL CONTROL ￼ ?attonaMsn Problems CAN CIVIL SERVICE COPE P LONDON, Wednesday. There was a big surprise-, at the meet- ing of the Coal Commission this moraing when Viscount Haldane entered the room and quickly took his s-eaj: in the ti-itneas ohavr. Sir John, Sankay, the President, refei-red to Lord Ha.ldtine's ei--ii of office as Sec- retary foi War, and said li;s lordship had considerable experience of, and was eponeibj? for, the re-organisation of a great S¿a,te department. The chairman added that the point the Commission W05 anxious to have Lord Ha Wane's opinion upon was whether the preeent Civil Ser- vices would be sufficient, in case the Commission recommended in favour of the Nationalisation of the Mines, to suo- cessfully cope with the problems that would fall on them.
CRAVE CHARCE FAILS A llECA TIONS Of SW ANSEA GIRL DISCREDITED At Swansea, on Wednesday, the hearing was resumed of the case in which four men are charged with an alleged grave offence against Elizabeth Lewis, a domestic servant, until recently employed at Mansel-street, The men axe: William. Morris (3i), copper w-or-ker; John Da vies (31), bootmaker; Alquin George Nieman (27), spring smith; and Thomas Henry Williams (30), I-a,boti,rer.-Th,-y -cle- fended by Mr. Henry Thompson, whilst Mr. Rupert Lewis prosecuted. When the case was resumed on Wed- nesday afternoon, P.C. (48) Williams told the court that after receiving a complaint he went to Mansel-street and took Morris and Davies into custody. On the wfvr to the police station Morris said, That woman (prosecutrix) is trying to make a charge against me. I've done nothing. I was only jiursing the baby. Arid the only thing she can charge me with is for being in their lavatory." Witness later saw the girl, who was in a very dishevelled and exhausted condition and crying. Chief Detective Inspector Fox, who took Niemen and Willia^ns into custody, said that when he spoke to Nieman about it the latter made a statement, in the course of which he said he was home at 3.30 on the day of'the occurrence. This closed the case for the prosecution. Mr. Thompson, hi the course of a long1 and earnest appeai. tor tiae defence, eub- mitted that there /ate* no to answer. He reviewed rhe evid;iQo» at great length, and referred to rhtf fact that when the altered asc-ault was coromi'tted the prose- cutrix did not utter a sjLngle cry. As a matter of fact everything pointed to the fact, that there was consent. The girl's evidence in the witness-box disclosed a 6Dd state of affairs. It presented a rpecitacle to make a decent, imaoi weep." This unfortunate woman had been accus- tomed to debauchery since she was 15 years of age, and had admitted having misconducted herself often with Williams. He was going to call evidence to prove his contention that there had been con- h ei-e had been mu- geal. I- DISMISSED. I After a retirement of live minutes, the ¡ Chairman (Mr. J. H. Rosier) announced that the case against all four men would I be dismissed. The Bench felt that no jury would convict. The verdict was received with applause, and this drew from the Chairman a etern rebuke.
GLASS IN POCKET. Charge Against Grovesend I Collier Dismissed. At Swansea, on Wednesday Sidney C. Morris (31), collier, of Giovesend, was charged with stealing a glass value 6d. from the Buck Inn, 1 Ymtlliw. Accord- ing to the prosecution, a man called Daniel Davies saw defendant piaco the glass in his pocket and walk out. In reply to Mr. Thompson, defending, Davies admitted that' he was not on friendly terms with defendant. He de- nied, however, having said that he had a grudge against Morrk. He also denied having placed a glass in defendant's pocket in a spirit of revenge. Defendant was called and denied the theft on oath. The case was dismissed, the verdict being received with applause in court.
SWANSEA HOUSING. I Efforts to Get the Work Commenced. Although there are some people in Swansea upon whom the urgency of the housing problem might be the more strongly impressed if the borough is in- cluded in the Premier's tour among local authorities to urge the greatest possible expedition in carrying out their building schemes," the TTousing Committee's chairman is not among them. We should, of course, be delighted to see the Premier," Ald. Moljpneux (the chairman) said, a but we and the officials are leaving absolutely no stone unturned in our preparations tq get the actual houses commenced at the earliest possible moment. Mr. Lloyd George himself is not 1 keener than I am about this."

The conference, at which some fifty dele- gates from Newport, Cardiff, Barry, Port Talbot and Swansea, were present, was under the anspices eft tiic-, Transport I Workers' Federation, which was repre- sellted by Mr. E. Bevin and Mr. Robert I Williams (secretary). There were alc-o present the following officials of the I unions involved :— Messrs. J. Twomey (Swansea), A. Barton (Cardiff), J. Screeii and O'Leary (Newport), H. Rogers (Barry), and H. Bate (Port Talbot). I THE RESOLUTION. I After considering reports from the ports mentioned, the following resolution was unanimously carried :— That this meeting of delegates of South Wales harbour pilots, riggers and boatmen, having consulted the various sections in the several ports, do hereby resolve to discontinue all work between the hours of 12 noon Sa-turdaj and 8 a.m. Monday, and between 5 p. and 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. ow other days, this policy to become oper- ative on Saturday, June 21st, unless a conference is arranged and a settlement arrived at of our previous claims for an increase of 20 per cent. upon existinj total earnings and a levelling up of ex- isting percentages. I WHAT IT MEANS. I "And the effect, of tlusr" a "Leader" man asked Messrs. Williams and Bevin. It constitutes a refusal to work ex- cept during the prescribed hours now- worked by the dockers, trimmers and other waterside workers in the various ports," Mr. Williams replied. It means," Mr. Bevin added, "that i hiie these men are ultimately entitled to the ordinary working hours of other transport workers on all these days, we I reoognised the difficulties of the calling and offered to accept 20 per cent. ad- vance in lieu of the shorter hours. The employers refused, and there is no alter- native to withdrawing labour at the times mentioned in the resolution." "TRiAL OF STRENGTH." A circular letter issued by Messrs. Wil- liams and Bevin to South Wales transport workers gays a trial of strength may develop between the Federation and "the shipowners who are making proiits be- yound the dreams of avarice."

AMMANFORD TRAINS. Amman Valley and the G.W.R. Services. The poor train services from and within the Amman Valley led to some vigorous comments at the Ammanford Council on Tuesday night, Mr. Evan Lewis in the chair. In reference to a proposed deputation to meet the G.W.R. divisional superin- j tendent at Swansea, a communication was! read from him asking to be informed by letter first of specific grievances. Mr. W. L. Smith said it was evident thai the divisional superintendent would not see them atilem they thrust them selves upoi; him. The clerk said he had written altogether dozens and downs of letters, and it seemed to him that no power on earth would move the G.W.R. Co. with the ex- I ception of the Board of Trade. Mr. Wm. Evans thought that just now the railway company had a good excuse, in that their engines and rolling stock were in France. Clerk: They instituted but little of im- provement, even in normal times. It was decided that the deputation ap- pointed hy the Council should hold a meeting with the object, it is understood, 0( denial My formulating the STiormc".
OVERriULED ? ',SYiMSEA FOO-D- CONTRUi- I SNUBBED. i f THREAT OF DRASTIC AQTIOii |. Members of the Swansea Food Control i(".ommite d'spi&y no little indignation 'at the latest action of the Ministry of Food in London in refusing to accept the Committee's recommendation as to what the milk prices in Swansea shouiu be for the summer months. It will be remembered that the Swan- i sea Committee fixed the prices at an average oi 2s. 6d. per gallon for the1 four months, eventually deciding UpOl the following figures: June 2s. M., July 1 2s. 4d., August 2s. 8d., September 2s 8i. Mr. Williams, who is t he Commis- sioner for milk at the South Wales Divi- sional otiiee at Cardiff, waited upon the Committee at two of ot their.meetings and urged them to come into line with Cardiff and a number of other Welsh authorities by making the average 2s. 7d., which, would be met by increasing the July price to 2s. 8d. The Swansea Committee, however, felt that the aver- age erf 2s. 6d. was quite high enough, md some members went so far as tc ..ay that in their opinion even 2s. 6d. excessive. Representations were made by Cardiff «1-qQ by Swansea to the Ministry of Foqi, n the schedule, and probably by the vendors as well, and it was intimated that in the event of the Swansea list being turned down the Committee would consider the advisability of resigning en bloc. REFUSED! I The latest phafe of the matter is the refusal of the Ministry to accept the Swansea recommendations, and a speciai meeting of the Committee has been called for Thursday afternoon, when it is quite on the cards that drastic action will be taken. We are not going to take this fresh affront lying down, declared a member of the Committee to a Leader re- porter. If our decisions are to be over-ruled by Cardiff and London, then -he oulv thing left for us to do is t-c resign.
BAKERS AND MILLERS I National School for Welles. f At a meeting ot Swansea and District Master Bakers' and Millers' Association, Mr. W. H. Burridge presiding, a commit- tee was appointed to receive tenders from hauliers, and discuss terms on which bakers' haulage may be conducted. The appeal by the Federation Council to the bakery and-confectionery trade, on behalf of the National Bakery School for Wales, was discussed. The secretary wife instructed to communicate with Mr. T. J. Rees (Director of Education) asking him to receive a deputation of the local trade to discuss this question. Early closing was discussed, but in view of the proposed general Act of Parliament no action was taken.
TO PROVIDE WORK. J Ammanford Trunk Sewer to I Proceed. At Ammanford Council on Tuesday I evening, Mr. Frank Dawson (a new mom- I.-e.T) urged that the construction- of the j pa-op. *<*d joint trunk sewer tor the w'v.ie ■it> £ th-, Amman. ^Valley, as well as of the II Ammanford domestic sewerage scheme, be proceeded witfy immediately, so as to alleviate unemployment and safeguard health, It was stated by the Clerk and by Mr. Wm. Evanfe, the latter a member of the I Joint Sewerage, Board, that the prelimi- nary arrangements with regard to the joint scheme were in an advanced rtage. SCHEME TO PROCEED. I Mr. Wm. Evans said everything possiMe vae being done, but the unsettled oondi-I tions made it rather inadvisable at the moment to a&k for tenders, as tendering jtrms would doubtless safeguard them- selves 4gainst fluctuations by a big mar- gin, whioh the local authorities in the Airman Valley were not pyepared to pay. He Understood that for the domestic Scheme Mr. H. Herbert (the engineer) had the plans ready, and application could be Vnade to the Local Government Board for an inquiry. A motion to proceed forthwith with the sdhem-es was carried. A DEATH TRAP. I It was resolved, on the motion of Mr. Wm. Evans, to apply the Private Streets Works Act to Iscennen-road so that the Council could without delay construct a culvert over the stream running alongside, the stenph from which was said to be unbearable in the present hot weather. and which in wet weather was a death trap to child rev. on account of floods. It was felt that the frontagers should not be called upon to bear anything like the whole exyme. wiii-cJu was estimated ) at JE2C0. 1

Panther, not being in the first three. The winner is the property cf a Car- diff gentleman in Lord Glaneiy, better known as Mr. Tatem, the well-known shipowner. Lord Gkmely had H second I horse in the race, Dominion, and as h, decided not to nominate a winner, a: d ran both, the two horses carried a good, dea lof feouth Wales money. The course was- in rather hard con- dition, and though rain began to fall at lipsom at noon it had iiitte effect <1: the ground, the going 1>eim; anything but heavy. The attendance was probably a record; it seeiuvxi as though ali tho world and his wife were there. A n jeuorthy feature was the number of Coloillal- soldiers in uniform, ai,, Americans were also there in large numbers. In Swansea and district there was the keenest interest in the raec-, iiid as iL [ pre-war days aien who never have a btt made gamble "on the great classic event. The hardened punters were of course in strong evidence. From 2.50 p.m. and onwards the. crowd around the Leader Office be-f g-an to increase, and before the time of the race it ran into four figures. anJ anxious eyes were kept on the doors of thA publishing department. Those wh were inside the .ofifce knew what those outside did not—that the horses were nine minutes after time in getting off- the mark. When the first newsboy emerged with -t rush and a triumphant -?lout Der,by result," th? waiting crowd (in -hicl, I were men of all sorts and condition? and a good sprinkling of women as -.v?li) mad a bee-line for him. His big bundle ci f papers beneath his arm melted away; tL anxious ones literally poured upon han by dozens and practically puiied the papers from his har.d.s. The next boy, and the next, an dthe next, suffered same experience. The result;- Well, it can hardly have heen pleasing to most of the awaiting people. There were oertainly more tha.n joyful countenances. After the firsr surprise one heard a good deal of satirical laughter.
