Aberdare Chamber of Trade. COUNTY COURT ACCOMMODATION. The ordinary meeting of the Aberdare and District Chamber of Trade was held on Wednesday evening at Miles' Restaur- ant. Mr. T. Lloyd, president, occupied the chair, and there was a fairly good attendance. One item on the agenda was To con- sider the question of the inadequate ac- commodation for the public at the Coun- ty Court Offices, and to decide what should be done with a view to urging the authorities to make improvements, The Chairman said they were all aware of the fact that accommodation at the local offices was very limited. Great difficulty was experienced by tradesmen who desired to go through the books. He well remembered the offices 35 years ago, and he was sorry to say they were no better or bigger to-day than they were then. It had been suggested some time ago that separate offices were to be opened at Mountain Ash, for that district. If that were done the Aberdare Offices would be considerably relieved. The secretary, Mr. T. W. Griffiths, con- firmed what the chairman had said, and added that accommodation at the Aber- dare County Court was extremely bad. rt was very awkward, also, to have the Registrar's Court held in the County Court Offices and the County Court at the Police Station. This was very try- ing, especially for solicitors. If they were not present when cases were called, those cases would be struck out. Accommoda- tion for solicitors was lacking at the the County Court. They had no room to interview witnesses, and had to do so on the landing above the stairs, or in the streets. There was no room even for bar- risters to hang up their gowns. The Chairman said the laity" suffered too, owing to the Registrar's Court being held in one building and the County Court in another. Mr. F. G. Burge remarked that there was a tumour some time ago that new County Court Offices were to be built in Aberdare, but he had heard nothing late- ly. Mr. R. H. Miles moved that a deputa- tion wait upon the Registrar regarding the matter. Mr. Emrys Evans seconded, and the motion was agreed to. STREET HAWKERS. The deputation who had been appoint- ed to interview Mr. D. Jones (lessee of the "n Market) re street hawking, presented their deport. Mr. David Evans and the Chairman said that Mr. Jones informed them that he could not impose whatever charges he liked. He could not, for in- stance, exact a heavier fee from an out- side hawker than from a resident in the district. The matter was allowed to drop. FEDERATION BANQUET. The Secretary referred to the forthcom- ing annual meeting of the Federation of Chambers of Trade, to be held in Aber- dare in October. He said that Mr. Isaac Edwards, Dowlais, had made arrange- ments to get a speaker down from head- quarters. On the motion of Mr. Tom Evans, seconded by Mr. C. R. Vicary, a com- mittee was appointed to make the ar- rangements.

Obituary. Mr D. R. Davies, Aberdare. On Wednesday Mr D. R. Davies, of the Central Hotel, Aberdare, passed away very suddenly. He had not been in robust health for years, but was out and about until the end of last week. Mr Davies, who was a native of Robertstown, Aberdare, acquired con- siderable distinction as a harpist, and Was known in the musical world by the nom-de-plume of Telynfab Gwalia, He Was one of the pupils of Mr Tanesin James, R.A M. In years gone by his 3ervices as a harpist were often in great demand.. After spending some years in the United States Mr Davies returned to Aberdare, and settled down at the Central Hotel. He had since been on tour with music parties in this country. He took a keen interest in local football. Mr Davies leaves a widow and several young children.

Mr Evan Roberts. REQUESTED NOT TO SPEAK. REMARKABLE REVIVAL FERVOUR. The closing meetings of the "Keswick Convention," just held at Llandrindod Wells, witnessed the outbreak of remark- able scenes of revival fervour. Mr. Gor- forth, a missionary from China, roused the huge congregation to a high pitch of enthusiasm. Following upon his ad- dress, preachers and laymen, men and women, broke out into fervid prayer. The Welsh Revival hymns of a few years agO were sung with rapture, and the ex- citement reached fever point after the offering of a Welsh prayer. A perfect babel of praise ensued, scores of people breaking out into prayer at the same time, with indescribable effect. When the fervour was at his height Mr Roberts was seen to enter the Con- vention pavilion, built to accommodate .500 people, and to be making his way to the platform. After a word or two with Mr. Gorforth he retired only to re- turn after a few minutes. It was evident that the Revivalist was labouring under intense feeling, and it was with the utmost difficulty that the ministers on the platform, who had gathered round him, prevailed upon him to refrain from taking part in the pro- ceedings. The President of the Convention made several futile attempts to allay the ex- citement and to restore order. It was setting on for eleven o'clock before suffi- cient control was established over the congregation to enable the meeting to be terminated in the orthodox manner. r —

Grand Wrestling Match at Aberdare. On Tuesday evening a grand wrestling match took pkee at Messrs. Haggar's Coliseum, when the building was crowd- ed to its utmost capacity. The match was arranged between young Hacken- schmidt, the Bantam Champion of the World, and young Will Davies, who re- cently won the Silver Cup and Medal at the Wrestling Contests held at the Aber- dare Empire for the 8 stone 4 lbs. champ- ionship of the Aberdare Valley. The con- ditions arranged were that the men would wrestle in the catch-as-catch-can style, and that if Hackenschmidt failed to throw his opponent in less than 15 minutes he would forfeit the sum of C5 to his opponent. Hackenschmidt also challenges the world for the sum of X-106. Both men were heartily greeted on ap- pearing. Mr. David Davies, of Aberdare, acted as time-keeper, whilst Mr. Wil- liams, of Abercwmboi, refereed. During the first 5 minutes both men stood their ground well. Hackenschmidt continued to pin his man down, but Davies was equal to the occasion, and liberated him- self from his man when the latter seemed to have secured victory. In the eleventh minute Davies threw his man cleverly, but Hackenschmidt's strength stood him in good stead. As the time ware on excitement ran high, and Davies continued to play cleverly with both his hands and feet. He was as sprightly as an eel. Eventually, time was called, and the match ended in a draw, thus leaving Davies the winner of the X5 prize. Hackenschmidt at the end acknowledged that Davies was the best bantam-weight wrestler he had met throughout the United Kingdom. The pictures shown on the Bioscope were very interesting.

Abercynon Notes. I am pleased to find that another appli- cation is made to the proper authorities for an additional Police Constable—or a resident Police Constable for Carnetown. Without reflecting in any way on the existing staff, I venture to suggest it is quite inadequate to properly supervise such a wide and scattered area. I trust the application will prove successful. The missionary spirit is in the air in the locality. In my previous notes I re- ferred to the discussion of the "Wales for Christ" Crusade by the local Free Church Council. I am now given to understand that the place has been divid- ed into districts. Volunteers are plenti- ful to undertake the work of house to house canvas, and it is to be hoped that good results will follow their efforts. Ynvsboeth is also imbibed with the missionary spirit. Mr. Alexander Clark, of the Evangelical Society, London, is holding services in a specially construct- ed tent near the Council Schools. Judg- ing by the audiences, the services prove very popular. The Church of England are also anx- ious to undertake their share of work. Their work will be conducted bv two ladies, namely, Miss Downing and Miss Reynolds, who have laboured successful- ly in Dowlais for the last 12 years. We wish them every success in their efforts at Abercynon. What about that diar-v- Is it true that some of-our local ministers went to their Sunday publication, and found out to their chagrin that they had made a mistake? One minister had even gone 12 months before his time. Would it not be better for both to speculate in a new diary? Hard lines just before the holi- days too. Our local Councillors could not see eve to eye at the last meeting of the Mountain Ash Education Committee. The Chair- man by his casting vote decided to throw the ratepayers' money away to pay for services rendered (f) during holidays. Possibly he may explain his action by saying that officials are paid for holiday- time. Quite right, Air. Chairman, but two blacks will never make one white. I cannot see why any offcial-holrever well remunerated—should be paid for his holiday. I note someone said "gallery play," as if anyone of our Councillors would stoop to indulge in gallery play!

Miss Hook of Holland has really gone now—general weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth. Where did Moonlight Flit go for his vacation-Who said Weston? The select party to Cardiff on Tuesday got mixed. One found at the Empire and the other at Penarth. How gently that gent escorted his better half part way on her holidays, but why, oh why, Bill Bailey, don't you. come home ? What's the trouble between Ink Splasher and the Kopsie. Is he suffering from the monster of emerald hue? Widowers and the other kind usually designated "grass" are plentiful just now in Abercynon. When will those ladies return? Junction and Jeweller padded it to Ponty and back. What's the matter with their credit or couldn't they raise the necessary groat? Consolation for Junction these hard times, for he has always a merry lot of bhoys round him. A no doubt lot. Trouble in that band committee. Tried to break the rope and nearly broke their legs. Ask Summers and Winters-he'll show you if you like. Better give the man his 2s. 6d. back
