NOTES AND NEWS FROM PONTYCYMMER. On Saturday evening a young man, named Win. Phillips, lost his life near Kenfig Hill. He was a native of Pembrokeshire. Last Saturday week he took advantage of the annual excursions to Pem- brokeshire to see his parents who live at the sea- side near Tenby, since then he has spent a week'^ exoursion in Glamorganshire he was in Barry. Neath, and Porthcawl. He was returning to his lodgings in Pontycymmer, when by some means he wandered to the Great Western Railway near Kenfig Hill, and was knocked down by a passing engine, and literally cut in two. The mangled remains will be sent to Pembrokeshire for inter- ment. Last Thursflar a fatal accident happened at the International Colliery, Blaengarw. The hitcher had crossed the bottom of the shaft, when the cage descended on him. Death was instantaneous. There was a vestry held last week at Llangal1 in connection with the common affair. So vigor' ously did; the farmers protest that the mountain almost trembled to it foundation, but no one els^ was moved. I noticed in your columns a short time ago notes from Ogmore, calling attention to the jobbery practiced by the officials of the Loc&| Board. I thought the Board was elected to look after the interests of the ratepayers. If the surveyor did the work all himself, and in his moments drew a few plans all good and well- But it is monstrous that the public should Ù3 called to provide him an assistant at a cost 011 perhaps, 60 or 70 pounds per annum, when he has time to draw plans for any amount of cottages, ftS the Ogmore correspondent writes. There is to< much money spent for officers. We have surveyor, assistant surve3-or, an inspector 0 nuance, and a walking ganger. There are tWC I we could do without, the assistant and the walki11* ganger, Now gentlemen of the Local Board yt'" I are elected to protect the ratepayers poC-'it' Don't forget that there will be elections ere long We sent good men last 3'ear to take a holiday, _aI| if you don't open your e3*es and enquire things, it is possible some more of your mem' bers will be sent home for a change and rest. are willing to pay our officials honourabty, but WE are not going to be imposed upon.
