Mountain Ash District Council. On Tuesday, Mr. Griffith Evans in the lair. The other members present re: Messrs. J. Powell, Wm. Davies, W- Lamburn, G. H. Hall, Chas. Mad- «ox, James Evans, Noah Bowles, George rL^ghbour, David Rogers, William Millar, Bruce Jones, Thomas Jones, J.P., T. TV. Jones, with Arthur Pin- combo (clerk), F. Stock (accountant), y G. Thomas (surveyor) and H. T. Jones. A Pathway. Mr. \V. Lamburn, referring to a re- ^renco in the minutes to the Mountain Ash 8Iaughter-house, said that the Pathway adjoining was in a bad state. Be asked the Surveyor to report. Underground Dwellings and the Hous- ing Question. Rev. George Neighbour asked whether the report submitted a fort- Bight ago concerning cellar dwellings was a partial report. 1, Sanitary inspector: Yes, it was a partial report. There are four or five more underground dwellings in the dis- trict. Rev. George Neighbour added that they had ordered notices to be served on those occupiers where there was ex- cessive overcrowding. In the face of that, &nd bearing in mind that the Bar- rack Houses were to be closed, what was the Council going to do in reference to the housing question The Chairman said that the matter was nnder consideration, and the Sur- veyor and Clerk were preparing a re- port. Rev. George Neighbour: It is a very serious question. I am informed by a Friendly Society official that there is more sickness in Mountain Ash than in any other district in South Wales. At the expiration of three years of the In- surance Act, inquiries will be made as to the reasons for this excessive sick- ness. Mr Thomas Jones: It is well known that in Penrhiwceiber 22 new houses will be ready for occupation earlv in April, and 12 more a few months fater, hnd 130 more are to be erected. Mr W. Millar: That will relieve the pressure very much. Mr N. Bowles said that the Clerk had been instructed to make enquiries as to what other Councils wero doing. He hoped those enquiries would be com- pleted very soon, and a meeting of the Council convened to discuss it. The Clerk said lie was still pursuing inquiries, but it was rather a slow pro- cess. Carnotown Water Supply. I Mr Chas. Maddox asked whether any reply had been received from the Camet-own Cottage Co. re providing a I water supply for the houses in Carne- town. j The Clerk said that no reply had been I' received. Mr Bruce Jones moved that another letter be written, Mr Maddox seconded, and this motion was agreed to. Penrhlwcciber Water. Mr Thomas Jones asked when would i the Surveyor be able to connect the new I houses at Penrhiwceiber with a supply of water. Surveyor: About a month or so. Planting Trees. Mr Bruce Jones suggested that a few trees be planted in Edward Street, Abercynon.—Carried. I Increased Cost of Food. Mr. Noah Bowles remarked that the Mountain Ash District Council should Mountain Ash District Council should fall in to line with other authorities with regard to the food question. He moved the following resolution That this Council, representing a population of over 43,000, views with great alarm the increasing cost of foodstuffs in this country, and urges the Government to take immediate steps to prevent any further exploitation of food supplies." He was sure that no one present was willing for fortunes to be made out of the nation's emergency, because the burden fell heaviest on those least able to bear it. As trustees of the public interest they should strengthen the hands of the Government in this matter. Mr Chas. Maddox seconded. Mr. Bruce Jones suggosted thai copies of the resolution he sent to the Prime Minister and the local members of Parliament. Mr J. Powell endorsed Mr. Bowles' sentiments. Mr D. Rogers said they should send copies to the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer and the Home Secretary as well. Mr W. Millar: And the President of the Board of Trade. The resolution was agreed to. Proposed Flag Day. A letter from Mrs. Lloyd George re National Fund for Welsh Troops, was read, suggesting that the churches should make collections on Sunday, Feb. 2Sth, and that on March 1st Flag Day be celebrated. The idea was for schoolchildren to sell small flags for Id. each, the proceeds to go towards pro- viding comforts for the Welsh Troops. She also suggested that the local Cine- mshe asked to give benefit perform- ances on Monday night, March 1st. Discussion ensued as to how best to carry out the wishes expressed in the letter. The Clerk suggested that a public meeting be convened so as to organise a Flag Day. Mr. Jsoah Bowles said there was a danger of duplicating works of charity. Mr G. H. Hall suggested that the work be relegated to a joint meeting of ladies' committees, who should meet in a central place. Mr. Bruce Jones did not think that that would be successful. It would bo better for the ladies to hold separate ward meetings. Ladies from Ynysy- bwl and Abercynon were not likely to come to Mountain Ash. In any case they would be very few. Mr. D. Rogers agreed. A motion that the Ladies Committees he asked to convene ward meetings was carried. Mr Bruce Jones With regard to Flag Dky we could relegate that matter to the schools. It would relieve the ladies. It was then moved that the Education Committee be recommended to organize and carry out the Flag Day proposal.— Carried. Penrhiwceiber Site. The Clerk reported on the result of his interview with Mr L. B. Nicholl ro I site of electricity sub-station and stores at Penrhiwceiber. The Clerk said that the site had been agreed upon, and the landowner's arant had offered a piece of ground in order to improve the higL* way. (Hear, bear., Why Street Lamps Were Not Lit Orders from Military Authorities. Rev. George Neighbour complained that whole streets in Darranlas were in darkness during last week and also Sun- day night and Monday night this week. He would like to know why the lamps ifere not lit. Mr G. H. Hall: The same thing ap- plies to Penybrvn Terrace. Mr W. Millar: 1- have noticed for several nights that two lamps are unlit in Cardiff Hoad, and in a very dark spot, too. Mr W. Davies said he could oonfirm what Rev. Geo. Neighbour said regard- ing street lamps in Darranlas. Mr Bruce Jones: Perhaps the moon was out. Rev. Goo. Neighbour: The moon was all right; it was something between the moon and the Mount. The Surveyor explained that he had had orders from the Government to re- frain from lighting lamps which were on an altitude of 600 feet above the level of the sea. About 50 lamps were affected in tin. t manner, in Llanwonno Road, and other streets near, and also I Penybrvn Terrace, Penrhiwceiber. A Diversion. At this junsture the officers and several members rushed to the window. Someone whispered Zeppelin," and a few faces were turned towards the sky. There they saw. not an airship, but volumes of black smoke rising from the T.V. Railway new the bridge, where a small oil stores was ablaze and burning furiously. Mr. Bruce Jones: I hope the Press will not report that this Council ad- journed to see a fire. (Laughter.) Cartage. Rev. George Neighbour remarked that the streets in Darranlas were now in good repair. It was the practice of both the G.W.R. and T.V.R. to refuse to deliver parcels to some houses in some streets, and the excuse was the carts could not be brought to those par- ticular streets. He moved that the companies be written to explaining that private street improvements had now been carf-ied out in those streets. Mr W. Lamburn seconded and the motion was carried. Damaging Curb and Channelling. Mr. W. Lamburn, referring to the Council's work of improving Darran Road, said it was the practice of some drivers to drive their carts with one wheel in the curb and channelling. He spoke to one offender, who had the most to say. It was a disgrace that property should be broken up in that manner, and prosecutions should follow it the offence was persisted in. Tenant's Complaint. Mrs. M. A. Edwards, Knight Street, Mountain Ash, wrote complaining of the nuisance caused by the presence of pigs In a slaughterhouse near her house, They are here week in week out," she wrote, and my medical adviser has told me that I need not put up with it. The whole place was unbearable and something should be done." It was pointed out that the Council had decided at the last meeting to build a public slaughter-house. Mr. Noah Bowles moved that a letter be sent to Mrs. Edwards stating that the Council were dealing with the mat- ter. Mr G. H. Hall: Can anything be done until such time as a new slaughter- house is built y Something ought real- ly to be done at once. The Sanitary Inspector said that a person had a perfect right to store cattle which he was going to kill. Mr. Lamburn For how long:' Sanitary Inspector: For three or four days. 1 have Keen Mr. Wilcox getting pigs in on Friday and keeping them there till Monday. The place abuts on Mrs. Edwards' door. Mr. Wilcox is doing his best to keep it as clean as pos- sible. In reply to the Cleric, the Sanitary Inspector said the place did not comply with the byelaws. Mr G. H. Hall moved that the Clerk and Sanitary Inspector report on the matter. Mr W. Millar said that his attention had been called to the nuisance arising from that slaughterhouse. In fact the whole street was affected by it. There was every justification for' complaint. The health of the public must not be menaced in the way it was. Mr Hall's motion was carried. lr. Lamburn I hope the Survevor will proceed as quickly as possible with the new slaughter-house.
Splendid Work by the R.A.O.B. The H.A.O.B. has rendered a valuable patriotic service by providing a splen- didly-equipped ambulance car for the front. The car has been expressly de- signed to satisfy the requirements of the War Office, and has been accepted as part of the regular ambulance equip- ment. The motor is 16 h.p., and much ingenuity is shown in the interior fitting, so as to afford the maximum of accommodation and comfort. There are four stretchers, the supports of which are readily removable if the ambulance be required for non-recumbent cases. The cost of the car was, it is understood, over <£400. Besides meeting the cost of this car, and raising nearly sufficient for another similar car, the Order has contributed no less than X10,000 to the Prince of Wales Fund. The car will be driven by Sergeant Pearce, a brother of the Order.

Rowland and Ada Evans, man and wife, in Penrhiw- ceiber Road, Penrhiwceiber, the former 10s. and costs, and the latter 5s. in- cluding costs. A disgracfeul case," said the Stipendiary. Geo. Thompson, in Penrhiwceiber Road, Penrhiwceiber, 10s. and costs. Not a Fighter.-Successful Defence. Evan Roberts and John Jones, both of Penrhiwceiber, were summoned for causing an obstruction in Penrhiwcei- ber Road, Penrhiwcenber. P.C. Willifims deposed that he saw the defendant.i fight.ing and a large crowd round them. Jones had his Cap and coat off. Roberts protested to the Bench that Jones committed an assault upon him. He was not fighting, and had never been to the Police Court before. P.C. Williams was asked if Roberts had his coat off, and on replying in the negative, the Bench dismissed the case against Roberts, and fined Jones 20s. and costs. Jones did not appear. A Fine Drink. Bernard Lewis, Mountain Ash, was ordered to pay 10s. and costs for leaving his horse unattended in Oxford Street. P.C. Davies stated that defendant admitted being :300 yards away, in a public having a drink. v A Dangerous Practice. Isaac Edwards, Mountain Ash, was summoned for carrying a hatchet through the streets with the edge ex- posed, to the danger of pedestrians. P.C. Davies said he saw the defend- '1' '1 '1 '1 '1 ant, wuo was swinging nis natcnet neaa downwards. He spoke to hhn about it, and Edwards asked: %) liat the hell is it to do with you ? I can carry it how I like." Defendant told the Bench ho was not aware that he was doing wrong. Acting Stipendiary: It is a very dangerous practice. The Clerk: And besides you have no right to be insolent to the police officer when lie spoke to you. Fined 5s. and costs. A Bag of Bones. David John Llewelyn was charged with cruelly working a horse, and John Murray with causing the same horse to lie worked whilst in an itfifit condition. Mr Edward Roberts, l^nvlais, defended Murray. • P.S. John deposed that he saw Llew- elyn in Penrhiwceiber with a horse on the ground. After many attempts to get the horse on his legs, he could see that the animal was too weak to stand. It was apparently very old, and had a raw wound under the collar four inches in diameter. The ribs were all show- ing, and the back bone nearly through. It was just a bag of bones and very weak. A butcher was fetched, and the I lwYrsi* on t'ho snot. Llewelyn said he borrowed the horse from Murray to fetch some coke. Murray stated that the horse had been in the stable some time, and he asked LIeweiyn to take it out for exer- cise. The Bench decided that Murray was to blame, and fined him 20s. and costs, and the case against Llewelyn was dis- missed.
Scraps. BY THE SCRIBE. That Kaiser has a lot to answer for. The war which he has thrust upon us has killed many a worthy movement which would have flourished like a green bay tree in the times of peace and plenty. Clubs have disbanded and societies have dissolved "owing to the present crisis." Locally the dearth or the death of many a good cause has brought home to us very vividly the grim realistics of that phase of bar- barism called war. However, local dramatic societies do not seem to be affected much bv the European turmoil. Of late they have been springing up like mushroom. Everv hamlet has its amateur dra- matic company. Who said that the Welsh drama is not going to live." By the way, what has become of the pro- posed drama eisteddfod for Aberdare? Has the war settled the destiny of that movement for ever and ever? This war is having a great effect on our theology. Previously the enemy was the Prince of the Government of the Air, hut now Count Zeppelin has ousted the Black Prince from his domin- ions. Our leading religionists no longer wage war on the forces of evil, but the forces of Prussia. Sin and Kaiserism have become synonyms. We now wrestle against flesh and blood and not against principalities and powers and the rulers of darkness. It is time for Marie Corelli to publish a revised version of "The Sorrows of Satan." His Infernal Majesty's troubles are now of another kind. He is beginning to suffer from inertia. The truce of the theologians is not to his liking because it was not of his seek- ing. Since Lucifer, the Prince of the Morning, made war in heaven long be- fore the dawn of creation he has given no quarter and asked for none. It must be wounding his pride to see the Teuton warlord and his hosts taking the pride of place formerly occupied by the "lords of hell," as Tennyson calls them, for Mephistopheles is a jealous creature. Lntil we found ourselves at war with Germany an infinite capacity to hate the devil was considered the genius of righteousness. But now ability to hate the German Emperor, ban German music, and boycott German goods is a criterion of patriotic religion or reli- gions patriotism—whichever way you care to put it. The God-fearing old deacon who, when on his knees, used to make Satan tremble, no longer invokes divine wrath on his horned and cloven- hoofed adversary, but devoutly asks God to choke the Kaiser. And he (the supplicant) considers himself as pious as ever. And the Kaiser, too, is as good as ever-in his own estimation. Ours is a flexible faith. Our piety is of the putty type. No longer do we dread or hate the materialism of Dar- win, Tyndall or Bradlaugh, but that of three German writers whose names I cannot spell and whose theories I can- I not understand. All I know is that they breathe the German menace. And that is enough. We will have no phil- osophy leavened with German yeast. \Ve will have no materialism made in Germany. Give us the all-British material. The Welsh poets continue to hurl their metric javelins at the Kaiser. Take 1141 any Welsh newspaper or periodical and you will find it bristling with bitter odes to the Potsdam despot. If cynghanedd shafts could kill he would have long ago been the subject of ele- gies by the same gallant band or pencil wielders, who breathe carnage in the fighting lines of an englyn or an awdl. It is a coincidence that the two Cabinet Ministers who resigned because th9v could not agree with their col- leagues on the question of the war have both been termed "Honest John." Mountain Ash has supplied us with Honest John No. 3. I The year 1915 is Owen Glyndwr's year. The great Cambrian "rebel" as well as the distinguished Waterloo hero, Sir Thomas Picton, are to be re- membered this year in Wales. Now that Britain and France are Allies it is interesting to know that five centur es ago England and France were OIl any- thing but friendly terms. In fact they were at war with one another, as also were England and Wales. Moreover, the Welsh and French armies were com- rades in arms against the Saxon forces. This joint opposition was a source of considerable menace to the English monarch, Henry IV. However, for- tunately for him and unfortunately for the Allies—the Welsh section, at any rate—the "entente cordiale was broken off. Prof. E. Hughes, of Cardiff Universi- ty, in addressing the Aberdare Cymro- dorion last week, said that the Welsh. under Glyndwr, and the French could not pull well together. By the way, in those days of rupture between the English king and the Welsh prices, one of the chief English di- plomats, and on(-of Glyndwr's bitterest antagonists, was a nobleman named Lord Grey. If German historians were aware of this fact they would probably attach some significance to the coinci- dence with current events. The response for musical instruments for the use of our troops at the front has been magnificent. Huge cargoes of mouth organs have arrived in France. In fact I am told that there are now very few musical mouths that have not been "organised." I have tried hard, but unsuccessfully, to induce my next door neighbour to part with his gramo- phone and send it to Tommy Atkins. If Tommy could put up with its melody I am sure it would work havoc in neigh- bouring German trenches. It would be a match for any German band. But clearly my neighbour's patriotism is not up to scratch. At any rate it will not compare with my love of peace. In an editorial note in The Welsh 3utlook it is stated :—" Aberdare and Abertillery have considerably reduced the percentage of fleas in thenr schools in recent years." Well done the two Abers! Go on with your laudable work of "exterminating the vermin." Lord Kitchener is a native of Ireland, but his ancestors were East Anglicans. He first saw davlight in Kerry. There is a village in Montgomeryshire of the same name. I
