JUNIOR LIBERALS. 1 Interesting Address by Mr. E. B. Norton. The addresa delivered to the Swansea I Junior Liberals at Mond Buildings by Mr. E. B. Norton on Some aspects of the ooal question was voted one of the best of the eesÂ«ion It was a lucid and educa- tive exposition, and much appreciated. The methods of stalwarts like the late Mr. Halliday and Mabon, who did so much to improve the condition of the miners, were contrasted with those of Messrs. Hodges and Smillie. The arduous nature of tlia miner's calling was reviewed. The lecturer declared himself an optimist with an unbounded faith in human nature, if rightly handled. It had unfortunately almost become the fashion to decry British labour nowadays, but there was no doubt it compared very favourably indeed with that of any other country. There was no economy in cheap and inefficient labour, but conversely. Restriction of output was dealt with, and also the great necessity for increased production, and the latter's hearing upon rates of exchange, and the limitation of profits to Is. 2d. per ton was attacked. Colliery housing, siding accommodation, wagons, and transport difficulties were dis- cussed at length, and at the conclusion Mr. Norton was cordially thanked for his address, as also was Mr. Fred Jenkins for presiding.

TEACHER STRUCK. I Swansea Bench Advir3 Woman to Curb Her Tongue. An opisode between a young school teacher and a woman who could not curb her tongue was re lated at the Swansea Police Court on Thursday, when Miss E. M. Thomas summoned Martha Williams for assault. Mr. T. R. Harris represented j complainant. < Miss F/dith M. Thomas, St. Helen's- road, said that on Monday, 24th Novem- ber, she was standing at the Port Tennanfc car terminus, having just eonje from school. The defendant was also standing there. A little hoy had run across tho road and was knockc-d down. She picked, him up, and seeing: that he was not in- jured sent him home. The cyclist came hack, having had -,o-.iie difficulty in pull- infc up. Mrs. Williams said something to the cyclist, and then turned to complain- ant, and. began cursing and swearing Ilt her, and eventually struck her a severe blow in the bead. Defendant said that the group of teachers laughed at her, and she on I, touched Miss Thomas on the hat. The Chairman advised defendant to curb her tongue, as it had been the means of bringing her before the court on pro. vious occasions. She would be fined --Io&

I I :A TTEMPTED SUICIDE I â ? Swansea Mans iI r Swansea ï¿¼ ? Depression. I c: At Swansea l'olice Court on Thursday John Rees (lb), described as a copper worker, of Cefn-road, Bonymaen, -was charged with attempting to commit t., iiukide by cutting his throat with a razor an November 14th Â¡ ASKED FOR RAZOR. I r- Beatrice Rees, (leitiidtnt's daughter. fa id that at eight o'clock on the morning Â£ of the alleged offence, her father a-sked Â£ her for a rezor, which he said he was giving to a man at the works. At iialf- past six that night, on his return from I *2 v.ork, defendant went to the lavatory. Z Atter an absence of halt an hour he re- turned to the house, bleeding from a A wouiul in the.throat. He staggered and tdI. Dr. Jones was called, and later I defendant was taken to the Swansea JL Hospital, where he was found to be suffer- > ing from a superficial wound in the I s throat. ter h HAD BEEN DEPRESSED. I ?, 11 1 I I "I Defendant, after expressing his deep regret, said he had very depressed p inoo he lost two finger,s on the Italian front. As a result ho WU-. unable to follow his employment as lie could prior to the â¢Â«iv war. The fact that a son, after having served throughout t hÂ« war, had rc- enlisted rather than receive the "dqle," also pressed on his mind, but he realised now that he had hC1:'n very foolish. The Chairman (Dr. J. A. Rtuvlings) told defendant that he should learn to pray to fiod and look to Him and trust that He w., wl)uld carry him through his trouble*. "This temptation might come again, and defendant should pray for strength and guidance. it. The case was adjourned for three j jv- .months defendant's son and brother being i accepted as sureties.
v XMAS BEER. II Supplies Adequate But No Change in Prices I Jfr. MeC'urdv, a-sked in the Commons i -st,-rtlii v- whether there-was any hope of I ia better and cheaper supply of spirits) â -and beer in view of Christinas, said that, according to the Food Controller'.? in- âformation, the present suppliw of both were fully adequate to meet all reason- able requirements. No reduction in prices was possible fr,r lie moment I MEAT CONTROL. If â¢ Mr McCurdy, in a written answer, says j i. -jthe steps which have been taken towards removing eontroI of imported meat have C. merely lwd the effect of permitting re- tailer., and the public generally to obtain â¢ "whatever quantitier; of this incat thf, v may desi re. The protection afforded to I the consumer by the enforcement of maxi- mum wholesale and retail prices has not. been removed. MR. McCURDY CONTRADICTED. The Briti.-h Incorporated Society of Meat Importers. which claim* to include alnltift- all the British firms in the trade. contradicts Mr. )fcCurdy's forecast of meal; supplies. What Ntr. McCurdy fails to realise is that a tremendous change has come over the British demand owing t,) the con- tinued .)f high prices under Govern- ment control. Â» j Whereas the consumption of beef, mutt'jn. and lamb before the war was ill the rati1 of f,soo.non tons per annum (not â¢1tH).00;Â» tons, uulesii lie includes pig meat in his figures*, now it is only at the rate not more 1.3-0,0i):) tons per annum. SERIOUS ERROR. I I 1\ As Uie home production ;s estimated. even by Mr. McCurdy, at about 1,000.000 tons,,tliis means that on the present scale d C;JlbUmp, ion on]y about 320,000 tons of m Â£ at need be imported into this country in 192ftânot 1,000.000 tons, as he says. The discrepancy is so wide that, mani- festly, he has made some serious error in his calculation's or is very badly guided by his advisers. Mr. McCurdy may juggle with his in- correct figures as he pleases, but he will never convince anyone who knows what the world position really is that there is any reasonable prospect whatsoever$i a shortage in 1920."
BILLS' SHELVED. I Wholesale Dropping of Measures. A wholesale dropping of Bills this ses- sion was announced in the Commons on t, Wednesday by Mr. Bonar Lav. who in- formed Mr. Evelyn Cecil that it was > hoped that the War Emergency Legisla- tion Bill would be the only measure that the House would be asked to carry over ilrtil next session, but. it depended on the 1 progress made. The necessary resolution would be moved on Friday or Monday. Replying to Sir E. Carson, Mr. Bonar ,.Law said it would be quite impossible tc jt find further time for the Irish Education w,' Bifi this season. Sir Edward Carson said Irish teachers wero suffering the greatest hardship by reason of the postponement of the Bill. Mr. Devlin: May I join in the appeal I for the teachers? (Loud laughter). Mr. Lynn: Why did not you let the Bill go through yesterday? Mr. Devlin I will talk to you later. f Mr. Bonar Law, in reply to further â t requests that something might be done for the teachers apart from the Bill, pro- raised to look into the matter, hut said -4 he could hold out no hope.
