SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER \Ut 1898. THE County Council, at its last meeting, appointed a sub-committee to revise the scale of allowances to jurors and witnesses made by Coroners. The committee has made a most important recommendation which will unmistakably prove that the repre- sentatives of the people are not unmindful of the actual conditions and loss which are inevitably and unfairly bearing upon the working man. We all know of the Coroner's shilling, and the mocking of its remunerative power to recoup the the loss jurors entail in doing the patriotic duty of attendance. Upon working men who are compelled by circumstances beyond their control to present themselves as witnesses, this miserable shilling is a shameful and inadequate compensation for the loss of a day's work. The collier class are specially agiieved because the custom of pits is prohibitive of their return to work after the morning hour when nothing but coal winding is allowed. The shilling payment was doubtless scaled when it was thought that an hour's duty as juror was not badly considered when a queen's shilling and the honouir of it were given in return. The payment from its inception, has never had a higher motive than an honorarium, and its receipt never evokes the seriousness of a feeling of gratitude. "9 The tradesman is able to leave his 'counter and return to it without much financial inconvenience, but it is not so with the workman of the mining class. Even a surface workman attends these commando at the risk of a "quarter's" deduction from his day's wage. Therefore we are pleased to find that a more generous re- cognition of the workman's situation will prevail in the future. The Sub-Committee recommend, and we have no doubt of its confirmation by the Council, that where the Coroner certifies that the inquest is of special importance, or where the jurors or witnesses, from the nature of their employment, cannot reasonably attend the inquest without the loss of an entire day, the allowance to such juror or witness may be increased to not exceeding five shillings per day. Also an an additional recom- mendation is that the allowance for the rooms to hold important inquests may be increased to five shillings. — +
IT is most gratifying to find that the Technical and Intermediate Schools authority of the County is giving out money with a generous hand towards the extensions and improve- ments of our County Schools. The addition pf departments for practical work, such as manual training, cookery, and physical education, has stimulated the finanoial assistance decided upon- at the last meeting of the Committee We find Porth School will receive .£350, Bridgend X162, Ystalyfera X160, Neath X-980, and Port Talbot £ 1,100. All this clearly marks progress on the pages of Welsh education, and should rejoice the heart of every ardent Cymro. It is in educational equipement we are to find the secret of future national supremacy. This little globe will soon be parcelled out among the great powers of the world. The Czar's rescript and its ultimate result lead one to the supposition that the arresting of the constant inflation of armaments will come through this suggestion of making a map of the world upon the basis of the territorial ambitions of the great powers that to-day hold the suzerainties of the world. The dread of war is great, and if these powers can arrange the limits of their aspirations in a mutual fashion, the peace proposals of the Tzar will have laid the basis of the era when trade, and skill in its developement, will be the paramount concern of all the nations. If Wales is generously supported as the Glamorgan County authorities show in these grants to Schools; then Welshmen will have a fair opportunity of being ready, for the only, we hope, war of the future—supremacy in trade and commerce.
+ All: last we shall have some sense of harmony in the organization of the wards of the Rhondda. "Confusion worse confounded" has been the most conspicuous feature of the wards in the past. The Guardians and the District Council had widely different boundary limits. Only the most keen and enthusiastic of parochifcls could intelligently explain to the bewildered ratepayer the exact situatioia of his parochial geography. Dunno where 'e are" was the usual mental attitude of the ratepayer, and it was crop-full of mistakes and useless journeys to the wrong polling booths. We advanced considerably when the Local Government Act made the Election of Guardians and District Council in the samQ booth and at one and the same time, without mentioning the blessing of abolishing that wretched house to house paper voting. From the Local Government Committee of the County, we find that they recommend the alterations of the Guardians Wards in the direction of making them co-terminous with the wards for local elections. This is the evolution of order and system which will greatly simplify local government and make it intelligible to the ordinary man in the street. Complexity damps interest at all times, and it is little wonder that the people have been indifferent, apathetic, and generally careless of their duties as local citizens when local government in its distribution of electoral areas was so full of quixotism. We are pleased to find also, that the County Council is likely to issue an invitation to the Rhondda Urban District Council re- questing them* to suggest alterations for County Council wards in accord- ance with the before-mentioned recommendation of Guardian and District Council co-incidence. This will then work out an electoral machinery of every ward being represented by one County Councillor, three District Councillors, and two Guardians, except No. 10 Ward, which will return three Guardians. All we can say is that the suggestion is admirable and long needed as a reform.
THE miners' leaders are now vigorously planning a new organization upon Trades' Uuion basis. It has un- fortunately been the unenvious tradition of the Welsh collier that he has never shown a strong instinctive love for any great permanency in his unionism. There has been too much of the" flash in the pan" about his past history in this most vital department of solidarity of front when a crisis has overtaken him. It is marvellous to reflect upon the wonderful staying powers the Welsh miner showed in the recent struggle. He has pluck and endurance in plenty. This was amply shown in the late strike. It must, however, not be forgotten that the sympathy which he evoked from every quarter was equally creditable to those who surrounded him. The relief funds were mysterious- ly self-sustaining throughout, and there is no denying the conclusion that the ever ready generous flow of support accounted in a great measure for the staying povyer shown by the.

PONTYPRIDD SCHOOL BOARD. SPECIAL MEETING. A special meeting of the Pontypridd Sohool Board was held at their cfficss on Tuesday, when Mr James Richards (chairman) presided. 1*° attendance included Hev Joshua Thomas, J. R. Jones, Rev Father McManus, Rev Da vies, Messrs J. W. John, W. Jones Phillip Jones, Thomas Thomas, and W. M. Jones, with the clerk, Mr D. Milton Jones. The Clerk reported that the average atten- dances at the schools for the month ended July 21st had been 82 per cent., as compared with 83.4 per cent. for June and 75.5 per cent. during the corresponding period of last year. The Chairman thought this attendance was satisfactory in view of the amount of sickness then prevalent in the district. The architect, Mr A. O. Evans, submitted a report in which he stated that the Cilfynydd in- fants' school was occupied, and appeared to answer well. The girls' school would also soon be occupied. The Lan Wood School was pro- ceeding satisfactorily. The infants' school would possibly be ready before the rest of the building was complete. The Rev Joshua Thomas proposed sending a letter to the local magistrates asking them when granting licenses to warn publicans against sup- plying children under 15 with drink. T\is was agreed to, j

workmen. But that element cannot be relied upon as permanent. The sympathy of the surrounding dependents was strained, we regret, to its utmost limits. The tradesmen of the district deserve a most golden recognition for the part they played. Many of them, day by day, courted financial confusion, they saw it and will feel it for some time to come. But the collier is wisely making practical the wisdom of his recent experience by rallying round the call of organization He will be blind to the power of living facts if he neglects the mandate of his leaders. The power of union wilt aloke make the claims of Labour effective in the future. If he does not read the signs sufficiently, and J neglect this style of modern defence, then he must expect a baffled attitude in the days of the next war. The organization now contemplated will 'make South Wales the area of its comprehension. The sub-divisions make district branches each with power of local treatment of their own special cases. It will be wheels within wheels, and all moving in harmony for all great events affecting the whole. Its fullness of developement will not rest with the individuals in each district, for these districts will move in good understanding with each other. The machinery is right, the steam to work it must come from the en- thusiastic confidence of the members. This must prevail absolutely. Trusted leadership and fidelity in the following must go hand in hand. The beginning of the late strike was an exhibition of discredited leadership, and the sequence, disheartened councils.
