Persistent Cruelty.-Case from Codre- aman. David John Davies, Gooseberry Hill, Godreaman, was summoned by his wife foi persistent cruelty, and she also asked for a separation order. Mr. T. W. Griffiths appeared for the wife and Mr. W. Thomas for the hus- band. Mr. Griffiths said that the parties had been married three years. The hus- band had beaten his wife on several oc- casions. Last Monday week he came home drunk, and after some conversa- tion assaulted her. They had one child and the wife was in a certain condition at present. The defendant had never provided his wife with a home. They lived in apartments with defendant's mother and father-in-law. Mrs. Margaret Davies, the wife, said that the unpleasantness took place owing to defendant's drinking habits. Last October he assaulted her, and again last Monday week, when he gave her a black eye. Stipendiary: Why ? Complainant: Because I went to the "Bonky" after him at stop-tap. Mr. Griffiths explained that the "Bonky" was the Fforchneol Arms. Mr. W. Thomas produced a small round stick, and asked complainant whether she had not blackened her own eye by struggling with defendant. Complainant said no. Mr. Thomas: You are a Roman Catholic P—Yes. Mr. Thomas: Is the real grievance due to the fact that you were married in a register office?-No. You wanted him to come to the Roman Catholic Church? I never asked him to come since I am married. Stipendiary: Did you ask him before you were married?—Yes, he was willing to come then. (Laughter.) Stipendiary: Where would your mother be when he was beating you?— The last time, my mother was in a Sing- ing Festival, and my father was in work. Complainant said she was prepared to go back if her husband provided a home for her, but she would not go to live with her parents-in-law. The Bench made an order of 14s. a week.

Lewis said he saw the three men on Sunday, June 22nd, trespassing in search of game on land belonging to him. The defendants had four dogs. and they were sending the dogs after the rabbits. The defendants went through his hayfield and damaged the hay. Stipendiary: Are there many rabbits on your land?—Just a few. Stipendiary Well, they don't do any good to your land. Don't you want to get rid of them?—Yes. Stipendiary: Perhaps the defendants knew that and thought they would help you. (Laughter.) But Aey went through my hay. The Bench fined the defendants os. and costs each.

Fresh C.W.R. Train Facilities. Mr. F. Potter, general manager of the G.W.R. Co., had sent the following letter to Mr. Edgar Jones, M.P., and fr. Jones had forwarded it to the Chamber of Trade:- "As promised when I had the pleasure of seeing you a short time since, the representations then made in regard to train service facilities Tiave been carefully considered, and I have no doubt you will be interested to know that it has been found possible to ar- range something in the direction of meeting the wishes expressed in connec- tion with the time-table for the sum- mer months to be brought into oper- ation on and from the 12th July. The following trains will be run daily:— 10 p.m., Merthyr to Cardiff; 11 p.m., Cardiff to Merthyr; 10.40 p.m., Merthyr to Ahernant, 11.10 p.m., Abernant to Merthyr, I instead of on certain days only as at present. Improvements will also be effected as follows in correspondence of G.W.R. and L. & N.W.R :-The 8.55 a.m. train from Hirwain will start at 9 a.m., ar- rive at Merthyr at 9.27, and connect with the L. & N.W. new train leaving Merthvr at 9.42 a.m. for Nantybwch and Ahergavenny. The L. & N.W.R. Co.'s 7.55 a.m. train from Abergavenny Junction will arrive at Merthyr at 9.21 a.m., and connect with the 9.30 a.m. G.W. train from Merthyr to Swansea. I need hardly say that it is our desire to meet the convenience of passengers j in such matters as far as it is possible to do so, and it is hoped that the addi- tional and improved services as to which intimation is HOW givex will lie appreciated and that tho to which they are taken advantage of will be sllch as to justify their (,ontinso
Counofl, Chamber of Trade, L.C.B., and the Blocks. The following is the full ted sO the letter &Piit to the Local Government Bn rcl last month:- Th« Aberdare U.D. Council kariif acquired power to run a tramway service are now laying the rails, etc., and at a r-ocezit meeting of the Oouncil they decided by 8 votee fco ft to lay wooden blocks instead of gran- ite blocks along a portion of the ro-sto in front of the Council Offices, at an extra cost of A Town's Meet- ,1 -:1. .L ing was convened on the :!Öh Jaay to protest against this decision of the Council. The protest was carried with but 5 or 6 dissentients. On 27th May, however, at a special meeting of the District Council, their resoluticm was confirmed, in spite of the decision of tho Town's 'Meeting. Another Towm'n Meeting was then held on ud June to further protest against the action of tho Urban District Council, and the en- ctosod resolutions were unanimously c,! rr '(-,d. This second Town's Meeting was the largest of its kind ever held in the district, and you will seo from the resolutions that the ratepayers feel very strongly on the matter. In spite, however, of the strong protest of hun- dreds of ratepayers the District Coun- cil persists in laying these wooden blocks outside their own offices. As Secretary of the Chamber of Trade, a body which representa a large proportion ot the biggest ratepayers m the district, I have been instructed to place these facts before you, and to ask you if you would be good enough to advise u as to the best way to give effect to the-protest of the ratepayers, and whether it is not possible to pre- vent this unnecessary waste of public money. The only argument lor laying mese wooden blocks is that the noise of the traffic over the granite blocks would disturb them at their meetings. They are only there a few hours a week, yet they think they deserve special con- sideration. There are several schools along the line of route, where the chil- dren are educated day after day and for many hours a day, but the Councillors seem to think that the noise of the traffic over the granite blocks will not affect them at all. Yours faithfully, E. II. EVANS." The L.G. Board replied as follows:— I am directed to acknowledge the re- ceipt of your letter." (Laughter.) Chairman: We shall have to wait and see, I suppose. Mr. T. W. Griffiths The Council will hear of it, undoubtedly. The Chairman said it would be well to watelf the visit of the auditor, when the item for wooden blocks would be considered.
Medical Profession and Fixed Fees. Dr. Trevor Cory, president of the local Medical Association, wrote that the request of the Chamber of Trado had been considered by his Association, but that they had decided that the medical men could not give their medi- cal skill for a fixed sum per annum for attending members of the Chamber. It would be derogatory to the honour of the profession to accept such a proposal.

Bookie from Merthyr." Percy Jacobs, Merthyr, was sum- moned for leafing a horse and Tan un- attended in Seymour Street, Aberdare. P.C. Evana said that at 10 p.m. on 18th June he saw a horse and van un- attended in Seymour Street. After waiting for some time, Jacobs turned up, and witness apoke to him. Defend- ant said: "What's the matter? I am Percy Jacobs, the bookie from Merthyr. Everybody knows me." Witness told him he would be reported. The Bench imposed a fine of is. in- eluding costs.
Motor Cyclist Fined. Wm. Geo. Penny was summoned at the instance of P.C. Sullivan, Cwm- aman, with driving a motor cycle with- out the necessary lights. P.C. Sullivan said he saw him in Fforchaman Road. There was a side- car attached to the cycle, and there was no light on the car. Defendant said he had a good front light on, and he never noticed that the other light was out. Fined 2s. 6d. including costs.
Only One Light. John Bennett was summoned for not having two lights on his brake, which he was driving down through Cardiff Street, Aberdare, at 12 midnight on the 21st June. Fined 5s. including costs.
No Red Light. David John Davies was seen by P.C. Francombo driving a furniture van through Canon Street at night. There was no rear light. One horse was in front pulling the van, and there was a horse behind the van. Davies was in charge, and witness asked him where was his rear light. He replied that he knew nothing about it. The Stipendiary, in fining defendant 5s. including costs, said that no rear light could very well be atached, unless it be suspended to the horse's tail. (Laughter.)
Drunks. Patsy Curran, in Cardiff Street, Uierdare, 58. and costs. Thomas Wil- liams, in High Street, Aberdare, 5s. and costs.
"Casey and It." I.L.P. Convivial at Aberdare. Under the auspices of the Aberdare Branch of the I.L.P. a very enjoyable and edifying musical evening was spent on Mondav at the Aberdare Market Hall. It was termed "an evening with fiddle and piano." Mr Matt Lewis presided in the regretted absence of Mr J. Keir Hardie, M.P., who was unable to be present owing to an important division in the House of Commons that night. The chief figure of the evening was Mr. W* Hampson, better known as "Casey" of tlie "Labour Leader," who combines the qualities of a superb vio- linist and a racy; writer. He went through a long programme of violin selections, which included the familiar Welsh airs, "Harlech," "Llwyn On," and "Y Gwcnith Gwyn"; the Irish airs, "Wearing of the Green" and "Boyne Water"; the Scotch favour- ites, "Annie Laurie" and "Strathspey," besides many classic items from the works of the chief music masters, ancient and modern. He was continu- ally and loudly applauded. Miss Dolly Pickard performed her work well as accompanist on the piano. Preceding the concert was a tea, at which the following were the tray- holders Mrs. Ted Davies and Miss Marion Bruton; Mrs. Matt Lewis and Miss M. M. Jones; Miss Ruth Davies and Mrs. T. B. John; Mrs. Dd. Evans, G. & L., Mrs. Davies and Mrs. Suther- land; Mrs. (Dr.) Pritchard and Miss Jenny Phillips, B.A.; Mrs. Enoch Jones and Mrs. Nicholas; Miss C. Rig- by and Miss Gwenny Howells; Mrs. Roger Jones, Mrs. W. W. Price, and Mrs. J. H. Parrington; Miss W. Rich- ards and Miss S. Davies, Robertstown. Cake Cutter, Mr. Bowden. Bread and butter cutters: Mrs. John Rees, Mrs. Tom John, Mrs. Bowden, Miss N. Harris, Mrs. Chew. Tea brewers: Messrs. John and Isaac Griffiths. Stewards and ticket collectors, Messrs. Ted Davies, Matt 'Lewis, H. Male, R. Male, W. Lawrence, A. Wing, Tom Davies, J. Meredith, W. J. Williams, Roger Jones, John Rees. The secre- tary was Mr. J. Coombes.
Aberdare Football Club and Players. BY "OPTIMIST." I hear on good authority that the directors of the Aberdare Town Foot- ball Club have parted with the services of Jeffreys, their able goal-keeper, who has been transferred to the Queen's Park Rangers for a considerable sum of money. However, the Bristol Rovers will have the biggest share of the transfer fee. This will prove a surprise to followers of the local club, many of whom fairly idolised Jeffreys by virtue of his admirable displays. The ques- tion of the moment is: Who will be Jeffreys' successor? Will Bilson and Goodwin be seen with the Darians next season? I fancy the former prefers to stay at Barry, for whom he has already played many matches. This will prove a drawback to the local club. As for Goodwin no one yet knows definitely whether he will retire from the game or remain with the locals. Griffiths has informed a locat gentle- man that he will be seen playing against the Darians next season. Be that as it may, I have faith in the dir- ectors of the club that they will secure the best talent obtainable in order to build up a powerful team. In the meantime Mr Cas. Jones is making preparations for acquiring new players. I feel convinced that all will be well with the club ere long. Last Saturday the members of the Aberdare Church Cricket XI. secured another League triumph on the Aber- cvnon Cricket Grounds. The Darians totally eclipsed their performance of the previous week, and compiled the grand total of 102 runs against Aber- cynon, who failed to .respond" with any- thing more than 50 runs. Ward Davies was again the hero for the Darians, scoring 27 runs, whilst Tommy George took six wickets for 24 runs.
College of Violinists. In the examination held under the auspices of the above College, Masters Albert Tatam and David Thos. Davies, both of Mountain Ash, gained the Graduate Certificate with honours. Both are pupils of Mr. Bert Phillips, Aberaman.
Abercynon Milk Case. David Price, milk vendor, of Aber- cyron. was summoned at Merthyr on Tuesday for selling mHk deficient in butter fat to the extent of six per cent. A farmer stated the milk had not been tampered with in transit from the cow to where it was delivered by the farmer. Fined 20s. inclusive.
NO TEA LIKE 'kr IT aI BY ALL QROOERft.
Aberdare Chamber of Trade. Loeal Government Board and the Wooden Blocks. The monthly meeting of the Aber- dare and District Chamber of Trade was held on Tuesday evening, Mr. C. R. Vicary in the chair, supported by the vice-presidents (Messrs. A. E. Ilarmston and T. W. Griffiths) and Mr B. H. Evftfis (hon. secretary).
Transit of Cattle. The Board of Agriculture wrote in reply to a communication concerning the above, and the letter was referred to a committee consisting of the butchers and cattle-dealers who are members of the Chamber of Trade.
Italians and Sunday Trading. I Mr. Gwyddonwy Evans gave a com- ] )rehonsive report of the conference ( leld at Cardiff to deal with Sunday t rading. Mr. Evans was the delegate .eprementing the Chamber at that con- i 'erence. He said that it was called for 1 :he purpose of inaugurating a national < campaign to suppress Sunday trading, ( ind that the conference was a very re- l)resentative one. The discussion burned round several phases of the question, one delegate suggesting that grocers be asked to open on Sundays. That would act as a- leverage to force the question to the front, and command the authorities to take action. An in- stance was given of an' Italian who started in this country with only 2/6 in his pocket. He was now doing a huge trade, and was making more on a Sunday than the other six days put to- gether. It was really too bad that we should give the right of asylum to these Italian ice-cream vendors, who really murdered us in our trade. They were buying up commanding positions, and a delegate knew of one who offered the landlord double the rent that was previously paid. The result was that the tenant was turned out and the tenant next door had to pay a similar rent. (Shame.) Mr. Evans added that a resolution was ultimately passed viewing with alarm the increase in Sunday trading, and calling upon the Government to in- troduce a Bill to prohibit same. Mr. J. A. Lloyd moved a vote of thanks to Mr. Evans for his exhaustive report, and Mr. A. E. Harmston seconded. The motion was carried.
Earlier. Opening ef Post Office. Mr. W. Kenshole had a motion on the agenda "That the Post Office Authorities be asked to open at 7 a.m. instead of at 8, having regard to the 7.30 a.m. G.W.R. train, and the fre- quent necessity for sending away early telegrams." Mr. Kenshole was not present, and Mr. T. W. Griffiths submitted the motion in his place. The motion was seconded and car- ried.
Shop Hours Act. It was resolved to ask the Council to suspend the operation of the Shop Hours Act for 3 days prior to August Bank Holiday.
Cwmbach. Mr. W. U. Lewis referred to the con- tinued isolated state of Cwmbach. He would like to know what progress had been made with regard to erecting a railway platform there. Cwmbach people were neglected more than any section of the district. They had no cars, and they would not have any trams. Mr. R. L. Berry said that the plans of a platform were ready, but the Council would have to construct an ap- proach road first of all.
The Civic Sunday. The Chairman referred to the cele- bration of the above last Sunday as a most successful one. He had, however, expected more members of the Cham- be • of Trade to be present, but he understood that Mr. Miles, the High Constable, had discouraged too full an attendance of various bodies, fearing the accommodation at Trinity would not be adequate. Mr. T. W. Griffiths: The High Con- stable is very pleased with the event.
Vote of Condolence. Mr. R. L. Berry moved, and Mr. J. Vincent seconded a vote of condolence with Mr. M. W. Morgan, a member of the Chamber, on the death of his wife.
Cricket. GLAMORGAN LEAGUE. The Church eleven brought off an- other very smart win on Saturday, when they defeated Abercynon on their own pitch bv 52 rum;. Out of a total of 102 compiled by the Darians, Ward 102 compiled by the Darians, Ward Davies was top scorer with 27, Bob Nash running him close with capital innings of 18. The deadly bowling of Tommy George was again responsible for the small score put up by the Cynonites, taking 5 wickets for 27 runs. With the assistance of Mr Parsons, who accounted for 3 wickets for 22 runs, this pair bowled throughout the innings. Scores: ABERDARE. Tom Price, b. Wilkins 8 Woodcliffe, b. Davie 1 Ward Davies, c.

The Gloster Arms Case. Light Sentence on Aberdare Publican. At the Glamorgan Quarter Sessions held at Cardiff on Tuesday, before Mr. Rhys Williams (president) and other it stices. David Williams, licensed victu- aller, Glosters Arms. Aberdare, was charged with keeping or using the pre- mises for the purpose of betting Mr. A. T., James (instructed by I Messrs. C. and W. Kenshole), who ap- peared to prosecute, said that a police- constable in disguise had witnessed betting in the house, and that the place was raided. Mr. Trevor Hunter (instructed by Mi Wm. Thomas, Aberdare) defended It was stated on behalf of the defend- ant, who suffered from an infirmity, that he had hitherto conducted his place veil. Defendant had been engaged for many years as a County Court bailiff. Supt. Rees. on being railed, gave the defendant a good character. The defendant pleaded guilty, and a fine of £5 and cots-ot to exceed £10 ;iltogether-,A-as imposed, the Chairman stating that the bench had decirled to deal leniently with the defendant in view of the representu lions made on bis bahalf by counsel.
Suffrage Meeting at Aberdare. Rongim Urged on by Resectable Type." With regard to the above sneering, reported in another column, "An On- looker" writes aa follows:- A hugo crowd assembled! o* the Square, Friday, June 27th, hoping to have the pleasuro of hearing };L. Keating Hill and Miss Trot (Orejawner, Women's Freedom League). Ilul it not been for a few your^ hb kmew no better, and who viere irged on by some four or fiTíj of the "resp^et- | able type;" we' shonld not kivo ne away disappointr>d.

New Theatre, Aberdare. ROYAL ITALIAN GRAND OPJIKA ) COMPANY. Great interest is being Wke* thill week in the return visit of Mr F. Gastellano's Royal Italian Grand Opera Company to the Ntw Theatre. This time the company has been aug- me n ted bf the addition of Signora I Dirgis, the Swede Nightingale; Signor Ventura, the new Caruso, who made his debut with the company during their three weeks' stay at Cardiff re- cently; Mr Aubrey Standing, the cele- brated English tenor from the Moody Manners Opera Co.; and Mr IJursail. the English baritone from the Chas. O'Mara Opera Company. Ou Monday evening the company opened their re- pertoire with an able performance of that difficult, yet sublime, opera, en- titled "Ernani," which is acknow- ledged to be Verdi's masterpiece. There was a good gathering present, and the four acts were followed with rapt at- tention and keen delight. The cast included: Elvira, Signora Barone, Aberdare's favourite soprano; Ernani Caudit, Signor D'Ottavi, the powerful tenor; Carlo, King of Spain, Signor Vail, who is one of the greatest bari- tones of the world; Silva, a Noble Spaniard, Signor Vittori, who possesses a rich basso voice; D'Riccardo, Signor Fragari, and Glovarina, Signor Boffini. Signora Barone delighted her hearers with a very beautiful solo. The next feature was the appearance of Signor Tail, the baritone, who electri- fied those present with a spirited solo. He and Signora Barone also gave a. duet. Then Signor Ottaví joined the pair, and a most enchanting trio was sung. They were forced to re-appear in response to a vociferous encore. TTie play throughout was exceedingly well sung and well acted. The eostmllefo; worn in this opera were most beautiful and reminiscent of the mediaeval period. The orchestral accompaniment was sublime. On Tuesday evening a large and fashionable gathering enjoyed the per- formance of the famous opera, H igol- etto" (music by Verdi). The principal feature of the opening act was the charming rendering of Cara Nome by Signora Dirgis. She was instantly a great favouriate with the audience. She was admirably supported by Signor Vail, as the Duke's Jester, and the pair had to respond to vociferous en- cores. Signor Ventura, rhe new tenor, I held the audience spell-bound with a rendering of the famous song, a translation of which is Brightly the I Pearly Springs." He, too, became a huge favourite. He well sustains the appellation of Caruso the Second." However, the chief hit of the evening was the rendering by the quartette. Signoras Rirgis and Evarti and Signors Vail and Ventura. It was really mag- nificent. Signor Vittori's powerful rich bass voice was also gi-ckit ly in evidence. The finale of the performance by Signora Dirgis and Signor Vail was both touching and ear-haunting. On Wednesday evening the company performed a new piece, entitled" The Barber of Seville." During the re- mainder of the week they uerforin "Maritana" (in English), TI Tro- vatore," Lucie of Lammermoor, "Faust," and "The Bohemian Girl."
n Aberdare Empire. An exquisite round of "movies" and three excellent turns make up a very fine programme at the above place this week. The turns are Kviusya's petite entertainers in a pot-pourri of mirth, winding up with their famous teeth and hair speciality, in which Miss Kvaska lifts and bears bv the hair a real naval gun whilst fired, the weight of which is 300 lbs. This is indeed a re- markable turn, and deserves the ap-' plause it nightly receives. A very fine pair of mirth provokers are Baker and Dasalps. the pavement pntterers. Their patter is thrilling, and their singing is delightful. A very good and appreciable turn is Carmen and Redman, the vaude- ville entertainers. The pictures tor the first part of the week are as fol- lows:—"Love and Varsity," Sweet Waters of Europe," Revolutionary Romaiice," And his wife came back." The star feature film this week is Engine of Destruction." The or- chestra overture is "Defiance" (Meher).
Haggar's Coliseum, Aberdare. A most pleasing programme of pic- tures is shown this week at the above delightful place of entertainment, which is being cooled during the hot weather by the electric fans installed in the building.
