Tabernacle.—On Sunday morning the Rev. J. M. Jones, the pastor, delivered the usual sermonette to children, his text this idme being, "Thou love il*e. Lord, thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind." The great prin- ciple of the text, he observed, was that one should put his whole energy-his whole soul into his Christian labour. In the sermon to adults, Mr. Jones dwelt on the period in the history of Israel covered by the Book of Kings. It was an era. of giant prophets, Elisha was the great prophet who made religion a part of patriotism. He taught the people that the greatest national asset was a great faith. Then there was Amos, the prophet of righteousness, and Hosea the man of sorrows, the prophet of grace and love, .and in whose message could be heard "the wooing note of love." Isaiah was the great prophet of purity. Jeremiah was the prophet who taught that God's rela- tion to a nation had a personal signifi- cance. Prior to his time, the personal element in God's message to the nation was not emphasised. The great men of -this era were not the Kings of Israel, but its prophets, and Jesus Christ, the great- est of all the prophets, came in a direct line of succession from these. At Taber- nacle in the evening the Rev. J. Richards, Bethel, preached a very instructive ser- mon.

A 32 Years Pastorate. TESTIMONIAL TO THE REV. T. JONES, LATE OF ABERDARE. Some few months ago the Rev. Thos. Jones relinquished his charge of Carmel English Baptist Church, Aberdare, at the close of a ministry extending over 32 years. The friends at Carmel resolved to mark Mr. Jones's long and faithful ser- vice with a recognition in the form of a testimonial, and on Monday last a presen- tation meeting was held. In the afternoon tea was provided for the visitors. The ladies who were in charge of the tables were: -Mrs. Hughes and Mrs. Tom Jones, Mrs. John and Mrs. Hicks, Mrs. Rowe and Mrs. Morris, Mrs. Griffiths and Mrs. Chew, Mrs. Hughes and Miss Griffiths, Mrs. J. Davies and Miss Thomas, Mrs. Caldicott and Mrs Owen, Mrs. Rees and Mrs. Andrews. These were assisted by the Misses Phillips, Miss Escott, and Miss Whish. The cutters were Mrs. Matthias, Mrs. Escott, and Mrs. Williams. The meeting in the evening was pre- sided over by the Rev. J. Griffiths, Cal- varia. There were also present: Revs. J. L. Jenkins, Trinity; J. M. Jones, Taber- nacle; R. E. Williams (Twrfab), W. E. Harries, Aberaman; G. Hinchcliffe, Cwm- aman; J. Robertson, Presbyterian Church, and Mr. W. J. Heppell. The pulpit of Carmel had been prettily decorated for the occasion, conspicuous among the profusion of flowers being a festoon bearing the following words: "A hearty welcome to the Rev. T. and Mrs. Jones. May your days be long and happy." The Rev. J. M. Jones having opened the meeting in prayer, the Secretary, Mr. Caldicott, read letters regretting inabili- ty to be present from Dr. E. Jones, Revs. W. Harries (Heolyfelin), T. Humphreys, Cwmaman, and W. James, Bethania. The Chairman said he had lived in the isame street (as Mr. Jones. Notwith- standing what had been said about Clif- ton-street by some people, it was as re- spectable as any street in Aberdare, and even in Cwmaman. (Laughter.) He was glad to see Mr. Heppell present. He and Mr. Heppell and Mr. Jones used to mest together on the School Board. They used to manage things in a fairly peaceful man- ner there. Now, according to the news- papers, things were not working so smoothly in the Council Chambers. He remembered seeing Mr. Jop.es when he was a student at Pontypool College. Since then they had had many hours' talk in Clifton-street. They used to discuss their sermons and exchange views on mat- ters concerning their sacred calling. Mr. Jones was always faithful to his work. He did not enter the pulpit on a Sunday in an unprepared state. Many people weighed the minister in scales, and found him wanting, but their weights and scales had not been tested by the Govern- ment. Mr. Jones had given the best part of his life to them. He (Mr. Griffiths) almost thought Mr. Jones could give them a few years more. (Applause.) As a citizen Mr. Jones served the public of Aberdare faithfully for years. He was glad that Mr. Jones was leaving with an unblemished character and with the best wishes of Carmel people. Might he be spared to serve the churches for many years to come. The Secretary having read the address, Mr. Phelps, Carmel's oldest member, as well as senior deacon, handed over to Mr. Jones the address, and a purse con- taining .£100 in gold. Mr. Phelps said they as deaconate were doing their best, but if he, as one of the deacons, did not please them he would also send in his resignation, and ask for a transfer to somewhere else. (Laughter.) As a matter of fact, he had commenced working 17 years before Mr. Jones had. On behalf of Carmel people he would ask Mr. Jones to accept that token of their esteem for him. Mr. Jones, in responding, said he valued the address very much indeed. It would go down to his children and commemor- ate the little work which their father had by the help divine done in the world. He prayed God that the church would be guided to select a good successor to him, who would sustain and perpetuate the good work. He had served the church for 32 years, but he felt that some little strength still remained in him. He was very grateful for the kind remarks con- cerning himself and Mrs. Jones. She had not been very prominent in the church, but she had never shirked work. From last November till last Sunday they had baptised at Carmel about 140. As Mr. Phelps said he was etill their pastor, and they woulde find it difficult to get rid of him. (Applause.) Of course, if they wooed and won someone else he, would stand aside. His ambition was ever to he not a warrior, not a poet, but a faith- ful brother. Miss Davies, Little Wind-s.reet, next iraeented Mr. Jones on behalf of her two :slers and herself with a beautifully counted text as a recognition of their esteem for him. Mr. Jones gratefully responded. The next item was the presentation to is. Jones of a beautiful gold bangle •y Mrs. Hughes, on behalf of Carmel people. Mr. Jones responded on behalf of his wife. An item of great interest was the un- veiling of a brass tablet by Mr. E. T. Malyon. Mr. Malyon remarked that the common idea was that such memorials should commemorate the departed only. He was glad however that they at Car- mel had resolved to emblazon on. brass a record of Mr. Jones's lengthy and dili- gent service as their pastor. Mr. Malyon unveiled the tablet. It reads as follows: -"This tablet is erected by the members of Carmel Church as a record of the valuable services ren- dered by the Rev. T. Jones as pastor, 1873—1905." The illuminated address was signed by Messrs. Wm. Phelps, J. G. Churchill, Isaac Davies, John Davies, Wm. Jones, T. E. Malyon, Henry Bryant, G. Morgan, Geo. Thomas, Wm. Caldicott, John Pul- len, E. Matthias. Mr. Phelps was chair- man of the committee; Mr. T. E. Malyon I treasurer; and Mr. A, H. Caldicott secre- tary. Mr. Jones said he wished his life to be associated with the building as well as with the church, and he trusted that this tablet would serve that purpose to some extent. Mr. W. J. Heppell said that perhaps it was meet that someone who knew Mr. Jones better as a man and a citizen than as a pastor should say a few words. It was his lot to sit with Mr. Jones as a member of the Aberdare School Board. Mr. Jones used to give him a great deal of trouble. (Laughter.) He (the speaker) as chairman; was pretty strict concerning the prosecutions of parents who neglected their children's education, but Mr. Jones was generally on the side of mercy and begged for leniency for the culprits. (Ap- plause.) They might be able to replace Mr. Jones as a pastor, but he felt posi- tive that Aberdare would not be able to replace him as a man and citizen. He al- ways did his work thoroughly. Aberdare had suffered through his removal. The Rev. R. EI. Williams (Twrfab) ob- served that he and Mr. Jones had met in the year 1872. He was unmarried then. Marriage was always either a drag or a balloon. In the instance of Mr. Jones it was a balloon. The moment he mar- ried he began to ascend. (Applause.) There was no better man in Aberdare than Mr. Jones. A man could be read in the make. Mr. Jones lalways looked gracefully. His appearance betokened a man of method' and order. He never walked the streets with his handa in his pockets. He (the speaker) thanked God for the success of Mr. and Mrs. Jones's children. He was sorry that the family had left the town. He wished them every prosperity. The Rev. J. Lewis Jenkins, Trinity, re- marked that in Aberdare they had no ministers' fraternal association like they had in some places. Aberdare had a fatal objection to organisation. He always hesitated in praising a go.od man. They might praise a town councillor and flatter a political genius, but goodness needed no eulogy; it shone like a star by means of its own light. Mr. Jones had not given them much worldly material, but he had filled them with high thoughts and in- spired them to good actions. He was pleased to associate himself with them in the recognition of a good man. There was a kind of cynicism abroad, especially among journalists, which imputed mer- cenary motives to all men. But thank God, despite the cynicism of the age there were men who were ever ready to sacrifice their lives on the altar of ser- vice to God. Mr. G. George, J.P., sympathised with his friend Mr. Jones. He had not seen him before in the dissecting room. Mr. Jones the man and Mr. Jones the min- ister were the same. It was the visiting and organising work of the church that put the minister to the test. Mr. Jones was an eloquent preacher, but his labour as a pastor was his crowning feature. His praises had been sung by the poor of the church. He was a good man, and a higher compliment not man coul(I attain. Mr. George then paid a high tribute to Mr. Jones as a governor of the Aberdare Coun- ty School. Mr. Jones had still a residue of energy in him, and he hoped to see that distributed among the Baptist chuches of South Wales. He trusted that divine wisdom would guide them in choosing a worthy successor to Mr. Jones. The Rev. D. Silyn Evans dwelt on the fact that Mr. Jones had served them for 32 years. That meant a great deal. It was 32 volumes of intercession, groanings, and sighs on their behalf to God. As an outsider, he was pleased to see them honouring Mr. Jones). Some people thought that ministers were people to be tolerated rather than esteemed. Carmel people were not of that description. No, they were sympathetic and kind-hearted to Mr. Jones, and would be to his suc- cessor. There was no better pastor in Aberdare than the Rev. T. Jones of Car- mel. He would always be known as Thos. Jones, Carmel. He would be known in heaven by that name. The Rev. J. Robertson recalled Mr. Jones's address at his recognition meet- ing at St. David's. They had had happy times together in the now defunct min- isters' fraternal, They had had their ministerial joys and ministerial sorrows often together. Mr. Jones had a happy way of stimulating the generosity of the people. He (the speaker) joined with them in invoking the blessing of God on Mr. and Mrs. Jones in the evening of their days. Dr. Ryce, B.A., heartily endorsed the good sentiments expressed by those pres- ent. Did they exactly realise the loss sustained in the resignation of their pastor ? What attracted them most in the character of Mr. Jones was the ring of sincerity in his speech. He did not speak|like an intellectual machine. He could personally speak of the good he had derived through his ministry. The news of his impending departure had caused copious tears to flow. He wished to add his own to the many tributes to his sterling reputation. The Rev. W. E. Harries, Aberaman, spoke and closed the meeting in prayer, and the audience sang "God be with you till we meet again."
'M Aberdare District Council On Monday, Mr. John Howell, J.P., in the chair. The other members present were Messrs. E. M. Hann, Edward Mor- gan, Wm. Rees, Thomas Lewis, John Davies, D. Jackson Thomas, J. Morgan Jones, M.A., T. Walter Williams, D. Davies, Morgan J. Harries, Ald. J. W. Evans, R. L. Berry, Wm. Thomas, Rees Llewelyn, E. Stonelake, with Col. Thos. Phillips (clerk), and Mr. Owen Williams (surveyor). TOWN HALL FIRES. Capt. R. L. Berry reported that two fires had occurred at the Board Offices, one in the Clerk's room and the other in the Surveyor's room. He was of opinion that the first fire had been smouldering for a long time under the hearthstone, and that at last it succeeded in, melting a gas pipe, with the result that the flooring was burnt. Ald. Evans: If our Clerk and Surveyor want new offices why do they not say so, instead of putting the place on fire? (Laughter.) The Surveyor observed that a represen- tative from the Insurance Co. had been down, and the damage had been assessed at jeilO 10s. It was agreed to accept this. On the suggestion of Mr. Berry, it was decided to give 41 to the caretaker for her promptitude in calling aid when the fire was discovered. A request by Messrs. R. H. Lewis and G. Griffiths, the collectors, for iron safes to store books, was referred to com- mittee. MR JACKSON THOMAS ON ECONOMY. While the Clerk was reading the re- port of the Finance Committee, Mr. Jack- son Thomas observed that several sums were passed to be paid to the Bwllfa Dare Co, the P.D. Co., and other colliery com- panies. "WOE are those for P" he asked. Clerk: For bricks, pipes, etc., which are required by the Council. Mr. Jackson Thomas: Would it not be possible to purchase these things from one place instead of dealing with all these people? Mr. T. Lewis: You want to create a monopoly, do you? Mr. Thomas: Monopoly or not, I be- lieve we should go to the best and cheap- est place. We are representing the rate- payers and we should economise. By purchasing at one place we could get these things cheaper. Ald. Evans: Are you out next March? Mr. Thomas: I don't care whether I shall be out or in. I believe in doing my duty while I am here. CONDOLENCE. The Chairman moved a vote of condo- lence with the relatives of the late Mr. John Bucknell, who, he said, was a par- ticular friend of his. He had been a member of that Council for a number of years, and he performed his duties in a sincere and straightforward manner. Mr. J. Davies observed that it would be fitting on his part to second the vote of condolence, inasmuch as he had had the honour of being selected in Mr. Buck- nell's place on the Council. He felt sure that all appreciated the, services that Mr. Bucknell had rendered on the Council. The motion was passed, all the members rising to their feet. INFECTIOUS DISEASES. Patients' Carelessness. Doctor's Explanation. The next question discussed had refer- ence to a yharge against Dr. Bankes of allowing patients to go, out of doors when they were suffering from infectious dis- eases. The Clerk explained the circumstances, which were partly discussed at the prev- ious meeting. They were as follows: — On the 9th September Dr. Banks had certified that the children of Mrs Holmes, 3, Cwm-place, were suffering from scarlet fever. When the Sanitary Inspector called he found the children out of doors. The other case was Evan Morgan Evans, Morgan-street, Trecynon. This man was reported to be suffering from diphtheria on September 19th, but when Mr. James, the inspector, called on the 21st Evans was not at home. Mrs. Holmes at the last meeting excused herself by saying that Dr. Bankee told her the children wetre suffering from measles and not scarlet fever. Dr. Bankes now denied that he had told Mrs. Holmes that the children had measles. He had distinctly told her the children ought not to be out, and that they were suffering from scarlet fever. He had also told Evans that he was suffering from diphtheria, and to keep in the house, but to take as much fresh air as he could. Evans's was not a ser- ious case, so he did not attach much im- portance to his going out. In reply to questions, Dr. Bankes stated that he was not aware of any regulations which required a patient to remain in- doors for a month. Clerk: In going out was it not possible that other people might become infected? Dr. Bankes: I believe, Col. Phillips, that he would be more likely to iiif4 ct the whole of Morgan-street by staying in the house. -Af r. W. Rees observed that the! e had been a misuntlei standing somewhere. Mr. Berry: In fubre I think it should be distinctly stated that patients must remain indoors for a certain time. Mr. J Davies moved that they accept the explanations, and that the offenders be not prosecuted this time. Mr. D. Davies seconded. Mr. T. Lewis remarked that a warning should be sent Mrs. Holmes. She had promised to attend there that day, but had not done so. The motion was carried. THE TRAMWAY COMMITTEE. The Clerk read a report of a meeting of the above committee. It stated that Messrs. Baker and Co., acting for certain clients, were prepared to construct a tram- way in Aberdare and Mountain Ash on certain conditions, one of which was that the local authorities should find the ne- cessary capital. It had been decided to reply to the letter that the present was not an opportune time to re-open the question. The Clerk was instructed to take steps with the view of widening the main road- way at certain places between the Ceme- tery and Abercwmboi. It was also decided to1 re-open negoti- ations with Capt. Roberts for land re- quired to construct the new Cwmaman Road, and to acquire, if possible, piece of land to the west side of Gadlys. The report was adopted. LIGHTING COMMITTEE. The Lighting Committee reported that gas lamps were to be erected in Gospel Hall-terrace, Co-operative-street, Tre- cynon, and at the lower end of Jenkin.. street, Abercwmboi. They also recom- mended that a duplex lamp be placed in- stead of the one now on the Square in Cwmbach. "WHO IS DR. PIC TON ?" Some Hirwain Wants. Mr. Sim Picton, Hirwain, wrote com- plaining of a drain in Hirwain, the stench arising from which was very obnoxious. He had called Mr. S. James, the sanitary inspector's attention to it, and whilst they were conferring together, Mr. James had told him to mind his own business, which he (Mr. Picton) instantly did. He wished to point out that there were at present several typhoid cabes at Hirwain. He regretted the insolent conduct of the Inspector. Dr. Ieuan Thomas, Hirwain, wrote regarding the same incident. Dr. Thomas said that Mr. Picton was bitterly opposed to him owing to a personal matter. Mr. James happened to be talking to him (Dr. Thomas) when Mr. Picton called him. It was then that Mr. James told Mr. Picton to mind his own business. Had Mr. James been talking to anyone besides him (Dr. Thomas) the unpleasantness would not have occurred. It was gross^ignor- ance and impertinence on the part of Mr. Picton to speak as he did, and he got what he deserved. (Laughter.) Mr. James's report concerning the in- cident was to the effect that he was con- versing with Dr. Thomas, when Mr. Picton shouted that it was with him he had business to do and not with Dr. Thomas. Mr. Jackson Thomas: I would like to know who. is this Dr. Picton.? (Loud laughter.) For what parish is he the medical officer of health? He must have t been a doctor or he would not talk as he did with our Sanitary Inspector. Dr. D. Davies's report regarding the typhoid cases in Hirwain was then read. The report stated that there had been 16 cases of typhoid during the last eight 'years. Of these, two had been fatal. Nine cases had been reported recently, and it transpired that seven out of the nine had been supplied with milk by the same person, viz., Mary Hopkin, of Coedcae Melyn Farm. After the milk was stopped no fresh cases were reported. The sewers had been flushed and disin- fected. Miss Hopkins wrote repudiating the theory that the milk was the cause of the fever, and suggested that it was owing to the pollution of the water. The Surveyor thereupon remarked that a sample of Hirwain water had been sent to the County Medical Officer of Health, who had reported the water to be up to the usual high standard of Aberdare water. There was no evidence whatever of contamination of sewage or vegetable matter. Aberdare water was the, finest quality water in the Whole of the United Kingdom. Another thing about Hirwain water was that it was the softest water in the King- dom. Dr. Williams's analysis had been confirmed by another authority. (Hear, hear.) Mr. R. Llewelyn: That is very satisfac- tory. Replying to Mr. Llewelyn, the Surveyor said the sewer complained of ran from Brecon-road to High-street. High-street was a county road, and the County Coun- cil were the authority to attend to any- thing there. A deputation from Hirwain headed by Mr. Sim Picton and Councillor T. J. Evans, were then heard. Mr. Sim Picton first dealt with the sewer and then passed on to the need of a cemetery at Hirwain. Twenty acres of land had been set aside for that purpose long ago. Councillor T. J. Evans pointed out the need of urinals. At present there was not one there. They had considered the matter, and he wished to suggest four sites, viz., Top of High-street, Iron Works-lane, a place opposite the Patriot Inn, and Merthyr-road near the Pop Fac- tory. The Hirwain people also wished to remove the lamp on the square to a more. central place. The Surveyor observed that Iron Works Lane was owned by the Marquis of Bute, and notice must be served on him to abate the nuisance if, as Mr. Picton said, the nuisance arose there. Referring to the Cemetery land, the Surveyor was of opinion that the Home Office would never allow the Council to use it as a cemetery. It was too boggy. Mr. Picton: Why should Lord Bute pay for abating the nuisance? What are the people paying rates for? Surveyor: The nuisance must be abated by the owner of the land where the nuis- ance occurs. It does not matter whether it is caused by something in another place which might be owned by someone else. Mr. D. Jackson Thomas said he was glad to see the deputation. But he wav sorry that Dr. Thomas had had to com- plain of the manner in which Mr. Picton treated the sanitary inspector. (Loud cries of "Order.") Chairman: I must rule you out of order. Mr. Picton: I should like to know what Dr. Thomas has to say about me. I am prepared to face him at any time. The deputation then withdrew. Mr. T. Lewis charged the Hirwain Ward members with neglect. Some of those matters ought to have been attended to long ago. Ald. Evans (loudly): You tried to re- present that ward but you failed. I gave you a whipping there, and I'll come down and give you a whipping again. (Laugh- ter.) Mr. T. Walter Williams: The Surveyor has given a perfect answer with reference to the sewer. We as a Council are not responsible. Mr. -R. Llewelyn and Mr. M. J. Harries asked that the Surveyor be instructed to notify the proper authorities. — This was agreed to. The removing of the lamp was referred to the Lighting Committee. The Surveyor further dealt with the unsuccessful efforts which had repeatedly been made to obtain sites for urinals at Hirwain. Mr. Stonelake thought that the accus- ation against the Sanitary Inspector ought to be dealt with. If he had been insolent he ought to be reprimanded, but on .t1. other hand, if he hAo been inter- fered with in the execution of his duty, the Council ought to protect him. (Hear, hear.) Mr. Jackson Thomas: Quite right. We should not allow every Tom, Dick, and Harry to tamper with him. I move a vote of confidence in our Inspector. Mr. Hann and Rev. J. M. Jones thought this unnecessary. No one on the Council had attached any blame to the Inspector. The matter then dropped. MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT. Scarlet fever, 62 (two deaths); diph- theria, 19; erysipelas, 10; croup, one (fatal). Dr. Rhys reported that there were six patients at the Hospital. SURVEYOR'S REPORT. Rainfall. The rainfall recorded at the Nanthirl, Reservoir for the month of October was I 3.54 inches, being a decrease of .4 of an I inch on the previous month, and an in- crease of .73 of an inch on the corres- ponding month of last year. Rain fell on 18 days, the greatest fall being on the 29th, viz., .75 of an inch. Aberaman Water Main. During the last few days I have had the main from the bottom of Regent Street down to Cwmaman Road examined and tested. The portion from the bottom of Regent Street to George Street is one of the oldest mains within the distriet, and owing to the corrosion the capacity of the pipe is reduced more than one-half, which affects the supply to Abercwmboi. I beg to recommend that this main, viz., from the bottom of Regent Street to Cwmaman Road, be taken up, and that a new 5-inch main be substituted therefor at an estimated cost of 2415. Building Plans. I have received the following building plans, and being in accordance with the bye-laws, I beg to recommend that the same be approved, viz.: From Mr. John — f Davies, 10, Canal-terrace, and Mr. Heary- Williams, 12, Timothy-row, Cwmbach, two dwelling-houses at Cwmbach-road, Aberdare. From Mrs. Margaret James, 1, Glyndwr Cottages, Cwmaman-road,, additions in rear of No. 1, Giyndwr- cottages, Cwmaman-road, Aberaman. From Mr. Hy. McLaren, Windsor-street, Trecynon, a oaxtshed and workshop near Old Tollgate, Hirwain-road, Aberdare. From Mr. D. B. Griffiths, 49, Llewellyn- street, Trecynon, glass roof in rear of No. 38, Herbert-street, Aberdare, and from Mr. David Davies, 56, Llewellyn- street, Trecynon, bakehouse in rear of No. 56, Llewellyn-street, Trecynon. Drainage Plans. I have received the following plans of drainage, and recommend that the sajne be approved, viz.:—Two dwelling houses Cwmbach-road, Aberdare; amended drainage of No. 56, Llewellyn-street, Tre- cynon; drainage of stable at Hirwain- road; amended drainage of No. 4, Gwawr- street, Aberaman. I have also received from the Aberneol Building Club amend- ed plan of sewers at Humphreys Field, Cwmaman, and recommend that the same be not approved. Number of houses approved as above Z Number of houses previously ap- proved 9569 Total number of houses ap- proved 9571 Action.—The work in Aberaman was ordered to be carried out. The recom- mendations were adopted. RIGHT-OF-WAY. A letter was received from the Powell Duffryn Co. stating that the Council might, if they so desired, take down the wall, so as to obtain the right-of-way near the Aberaman Musical Institute. ANOTHER RIGHT-OF-WAY. Mr. Tuckfield, of the Metropolitan Bank, complained that a good many of his customers were inconvenienced by not being able to cross the road in front of the Bank owing to the brakes standing there. He asked that an open space lead- ing to the Bank entrance be maintained. The Surveyor was asked to attend to it. UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, CARDIFF. Rev. J.
