A fine all-round proTamme is presented to the patrons of the Workmen's Theatre this week. The Jovilliaus in refined comedy are a show in themselves; they are well worth going a long way to see. Miss Molly Craven is an excellent male impersona- tor. The Three Prestons create hearty laughter in the little sketch, "The Village of Shift 'Urns." Mr. Curnow, as will be seen from our advertising col- umns, has a tremendous bill for next week. The flying man is a startler. Extra good vaudeville turns and real star pictures make up a fine pro- gramme. Y.M.C.A. On Monday at the hall of the above Association, an interest- ing presentation took place. The Rev. B. Burges presided over the Home Circle, supported by Messrs. T. Christo- pher and Fred Griffiths. The gentle- man honoured was Mr. Percy Grimths, who founded the branch association.

Banquet at Penrhiwceiber. The first annual banquet of the Pen- rhiwceiber Chamber of Trade was held at the Lee Hotel last Thursday evening under the presidency of Mr T. Evans. The tables were handsomely set out and lavishly decorated with flowers, and great credit is due to Host and Hostess Evans for the splendid catering arrange- ments, and also to Mr W. Keene. The following were present: Messrs. J. W. Fantham, vice-president; T. J. Bryer, treasurer; E. Evans, secretary; Coun- cillor Evan Morris, J. H. Rees, D. E. Davies, W. J. Hopkins, Dd. Morgan, W. R. Battram, E. Evans E. Hughes, W. Randall, T. J. Evans/S. A. Bond, E. Hicks, M. Davies, Abe Levinsohn, T. R. Evans, J. Isaac, T. Marshall, Hy. Davies, J. P. Davies, T. Hathaway, D. J. Price, D. R. Jones, H. Jones, J. Davies, E. H. Williams, Howell Howells, Johnny Williams, Jacob Rich- ards, E. D. Price, John Brooks, and T. Welsford. After the chairman had proposed the loyal toast, letters of apology were read from Messrs. G. J. Tucktield, Metropolitan Bank, Aber- dare, and W. R. Edmunds, Merthyr Tydfil. Mr W. J. Hopkins, proposing the toast of the Army and Navy, said that their minds naturally reverted to the past, and they thought of the heroes who laid the basis of the great- est Empire the world had ever seen. Nelson's signal had become a world's platitude, and Tennyson's gfaphic language and description of the charge of the Light Brigade could never be forgotten when they thought of His Majesty's Forces at home and abroad. Mr T. J. Bryer responding, remarked that he was an ex-officer of His Majesty s Forces, and he felt it was necessary to keep a high standard of power to protect our land and the necessary food supplies. Councillor Evan Morris proposed the toast of the Trade of the District. He said it pleased him greatly 'o tie present t the Chamber's first banquet. He came to Penrhiwceiber in 1881, and to show what rapid strides the place had made the Councillor gave the present popula- tion as 8,820. The colliery industry, at that time producing about 800 tons per day, was now raising to the surface close upon 2,000 tons daily. He con- gratulated Messrs. Hann and the managers of Messrs. Nixon's who had in such an able manner maintained that progress. He was one of the humble men who represented them on the Dis- trict Council. Thev had now the gas in Ceiber, but there ii-ei-P distinct hopes that in the near future they would have electricitly. The waterworks in the different parts showed a storage ot 46 million gallons, and with the addi- tion of Pendervn. would noarlv double itself. The population of Mountain Ash area was over 42,000 at the last census in 1911, and was still increasing every year, and' he felt sure that the tradespeople of the place were glad to hear of it. He was indeed pleased to meet them all and hoped that the pros- perity of the place would continue. Mr Howell Howell responded in place of Mr T. Phillips, M.E. He was pleased to hear of the prosperity of the district, and also that there were hopes of even better things.-—Mr D. It. Jones (Pentwyn), proposing I he "Chamber of Trade," said he had found out that they were a wi-Ke body of men in Penrhiwceiber, and it particularly pleased him that at the inception of the Chamber they had had some real good sterling men on it. There was more to be done than just ordinary I meetings, and they must get outsiders to co-operate with them. The mem- bers were the machine that moulded everything together, and represented the needs and desires of the public and the needs and desires of the public and everything that could he had without coercion. They had the whole wants 01 the district in their keening. and the commercial trade—the bread and cheese of the district.—Mr Tom Evans (the President), responding, said that after Mr. Jones' speech, he felt more hon- oured in his position than he did before. The Chamber had not been formed in any aggressive sense. Defence not defiance," was their motto, and they were out to do good and to defend their rights. Three years ago they started it, and Councillor Morris. Mr .T. P. Davies, and Mr T. J. Brver had passed through the presidential chair, the lat- ter having now accepted the position of custodian of the finances. Some things had needed improvement, and the Chamber had done some little good. Trains had been altered and others that used to pass through now stopped in Ceiber. The question of closing the Post Office on Thursday afternoon had been thoroughly gone into, for it was a great inconvenience. They had re- ceived replies from the Postmaster General through Messrs. Edgar Jones and Keir Hardie. The P.M.G. said that he did not'feel warranted in send- ing a staff to deal with the difficulty of telegrams, but he had given instructions that telegrams would be received, atten- tion to be gained by knocking at the; front door. Telegrams for delivery! would be sent out from Mountain Ash; without porterage charges. Mr Evans; proceeded by reminding them of Shake-I speare's word, 'Tis not in morta-ls toi comnuind success, but we'll do more, de-! j serve it." After a little more practicei j in that direction they might lie morei successful. The toast of Our guests") was proposed by Mr S. A. Bond. Mr' j K. H. Williams, responding hoped thatl the Cha mber would long exist and move! with the times. He expressed the J hope that efforts to get a goods depot j 9P- G.W.R. at Penrhiwceiber would con- L J tinue. At this point the whole coni- pany w ere requested to stand and re- main silent for a few moments in memory of Mr John W'illiams, Man- I chester House. The president proposed the toast of "The Press," and Mr Fred Alien ("Aberdare Leader") responded. Mr J. P. Davies proposed "The Host and Hostess," and fr. Evans respond- I ed, thanking them all. During the evening musical items were rendered by Messrs. Arthur Evans, Jacob -Richards. E. D. Price, and Master Johnny Davies. Just a word of praise for the capable work of Mr Secretary Evans. I
FATAL ACCIDENT TO A MOTOR CYCLIST. A fatal accident befell Edward Jones, of Merthyr Vale, on Monday. He was riding his motor cyele on the Cardiff Road, near Newtown, Mountain Ash, when in trying to avoid collision with a child he ran into a wall, with the result that he received serious injuries to his head. He was conveyed to the Mountain Ash Cottage Hospital, where he died on Wednesday evening.
Resolven Recreation Ground. Major Stuart, R.E., of the Local Government Board, conducted a public inquiry at Resolven on Wednesday as a result of an application from the Parish Council to borrow < £ 1,500 for the purpose of laying out a recreation ground on a five-acre site, given by Colonel Edwards Vaughan, Rheola.—Mr. Edward Powell (Neath) made the application on behalf of the parish council, and several rate- payers from Cwmgwrach appeared to oppose.—In placing the facts before the Inspector, Mr. Powell said the site ad- joined Rugby Street, and was about three miles from Cwmgwrach, where the opposition came from. The population of the parish-roughly 4,500—was grow- ing, and would continue to grow through rapid colliery development.—The In- spector remarked that the gift of Col- onel Vaughan was a very valuable one, but would the same consideration be shown to the inhabitants of Cwmgwrach, who lived three miles away, if a similar gift were made at their end of the par- ish?—Mr. Powell: Most certainly. In proportion to the population Cwmgwrach has been handsomely treated.—Dr. R. D. Prichard, chairman of the Resolven Parish Council, said there was a necess- ity for a recreation ground at Resolven, and it had his whole-hearted support.— Mr. Frank Beaman hoped that the loan would be extended over as long a period as possible.—Mr. T. Price, voicing the opposition from Cwmgwrach, contended that it was a non-revenue paying scheme. It would only benefit the inhabitants of Resolven, and he felt the ratepayers of Cwmgwrach should be exempted.
ABERCYNON POLICE COURT. Thursday, May 21st Before Mr R. A. Griffith (Deputy Stipendiary) and Councillor Griffith Evans. SOCIALIST CLUB CASE. The following were summoned for authoris- ing the sale of intoxicating liquors at the Socialist Club situated in Aber- cynon Road, Abercynon :—Geo. Fer- guson, Albert Reckman, J. Rees Mor- gan, Edward Johnson, Sampson Paget, Enoch Davies, James Franklyn, Corn- elius Oakes, Edward Edwards, Fred Powell, Frederick Hill, Jas. J. Adlam, Wiii. Kingston, Thomas Webb, Arthur Webb, Thomas Davies and John C. Davies, all of Abercynon. Mr Charles, of Merthyr, said the case depended upon a recent decision in the High Court, which laid down that once a club was struck off it was impossible for that club to be placed on the register again. The William Morris Socialist Club and Institute which was registered in May, 1912, was struck off in November of the same year. On 7th May, 1913, the club was registered in the name of the Aber- cynon Socialist Workmen's Club and Institute, and the police found it was run by substantially the same body of persons who had previously formed"the William Morris Club. Proceedings were instituted against the officers, and the steward was fined 20s. and costs at Aherdare. The case against the present defendants was adjourned. pending the appeal, which was dis- missed. Mr T. W. Lewis, Pontypridd, point- ed out that the Stipendiary told the de- I fendants in striking off the old club that he did so in order to allow them to I have time to put their house in order. He submitted that the defendants had acted innocently and had carried out | the advice given from the Bench. When I the case was first heard it was evident I that this Socialistic community could never start another club at Abercynon, j because it would be composed of prac- tically the same people. I The case against John Hees Morgan was withdrawn. j The Deputy Stipendiary (Mr R. A. Griffith) giving judgment, expressed | the view that the defendants had acted in perfectly good faith, and taking the whole of the circumstances into con- sideration he would only impose a fine I of 20s. including costs, on the chair- j man, treasurer, secretary, trustees and members of the committee-about 15 altogether.
