Temperance Defence League. Conference at Treherbert. The annual meetings of the Pontypridd and Rhondda Temperance Defence League were held at Bethany, Treherbert, on Wednesday, April 28th. A conference was held in the afternoon, when the Rev. J. Williams, Trehafod, presided over a very large and enthusiastic gathering. The meeting was opened by the Chairman, who read the following letter from the president of the League, Sir Alfred Thomas, M.P. House of Commons, April 27th, 1909. Dear Mr. Williams,—I cannot be away from Parliament a day at pre- sent there are so many important ques- tions coming to the front; otherwise I would be with you and other friends' who have made such a gallant fight for temperance. Though other questions just now in Parliament are in the front, ptill our great question of temperance will come up soon again for discussion, and, I hope-settlement. In the meantime, let our friends remember that Acts of Parliament are first made in the country; that is, by individual effort and the blessing of the land is the standard of morality raised: and Parliament has to follow and regis- ter the country's decrees.—From your friend, Alfred Thomas. Mr. Evans, one of the secretaries, then gave a report of the work done by the League during- the year, and said that this was the twenty-second report pre- sented since the League's initiation, and the third presented by him. They praised God that He had set in the minds of true and faithful men to promote such a good and serviceable movement as the Temper- ance Defence League (hear, hear). There was no doubt that it was to much buffoonery in its day of little things, but it stood its ground in spite of all. The brewers had been raging, and the leaders of the trade had been imagining vain things. The victuallers' representatives had set themselves, and the publicans of both Pontypridd and Caerphilly licensing districts had taken. counsel together, but all in vain. The League to-day could afford to rejoice in its success. When they reviewed the past history of the League, they had cause to thank God for the faithful few who wrought such valiant services in the work. The pioneers were gone, and their followers scattered to various fields of service for the Master yet the League lacked nothing as far as faithfulness to its principles was con- cerned. They had men who sacrificed time and money to carry on the work, such as their worthy chairman, who had done more than any other man living on its behalf—(cheers)—and their treasurer, Mr. Clule, who, although having left the district and made his home at Aber- gavenny, yet gave his presence in the executive meetings, doing a great amount of work quietly and unostentatiously (applause). He should not forget his colleagues in the secretariat, Messrs. Richards and Williams, Pontygwaith. It had been a labour of love and not of gain to each and all of them. Their Executive had been in attendance as far as possible during the year, and the presence of a number of friends in the Police Courts had undoubtedly been the means of strengthening the hands of the magis- trates to do that which was just to the betterment of mankind. Last year, they were looking forward with animated ex- pectations for a measure of justice and equity. They trusted that ere now the authority to rule this soul-degrading and character-despoiling trade would be placed in the hands of the neople, so as to curtail the facilities for obtaining strong drink in public-houses, as well as to deal effec- tively with the club problem. The country was ripe for such social improvement, but that" noble H trio of Lords of Bungdom, viz., Lansdowne, Burton, and Rothschild arranged its funeral ere it was killed and mangled. Yet they believed the time was not far distant when the Principality would realise its long-expected opportu- nity to rid itself of this oppressive night- mare. They had already an earnest of this in the Children's Charter, of which they were going to hear more; but there was more to follow, and the friends of the trade were already opening their eyes to the fact, and were preparing for war. Continuing, Mr. Evans said that the work they had to face during the past year carried them to both Caerphilly and Pontypridd Brewster Sessions. At Caer- I philly, an- application was made for a new license on certain premises to be called the Royal Hotel. This was not the first attempt, and to all appearances not the last. Thanks to the vigilance of their able solicitor, Mr. Millward, they battled successfully and had a. well-earned victory (hear, hear). At, Pontypridd, they had a field day of it. Some of the old battles had to be re-fought. Treforest, which was left desolate last year, again appeared in the field, only to be repelled. Trehafod had cause to be glad in the fact that two houses were referred to compensation there (applause). Dinas had a better chance of becoming worthy of its name and the noble character it bore in the past. Last, but not least, Treherbert; their old friend the enemy, Corner House," which wanted permission to ex- tend and enlarge its facilities, was still "cornered," and tolerated to exist in its present state for a while (laughter). The summary of the work done was as fol- lows: -Apnlications for new licenses refused; sixi houses referred for compen- sation application for enlarging present premises refused; and application for wine and spirit refused. Mr. Cule (treasurer), in giving his report, said that he had received £ 29 9s. at present, which was far too little to meet expenses, for he had bills already to the amount of P,13 19s., and there were more to follow. Thirty-three churches had already contributed, viz., 14 Calvin- istic Methodists, 14 Congregationalists, and 5 Baptists. Sir Alfred Thomas, as president; Mr. Cule, as treasurer and Messrs. Richards, Evans (Pontygwaithy, and Williams (Ponty- gwaith), as secretaries, were unanimously re-elected to office, amid cheers. A strong Executive was also appointed. Following this, a very impressive and effective paper on The Children's Charter," was read by the Rev. E. W. Davies, Ton. Prof. Levi terminated a rousing three hours' meeting with a very eloquent dis- course, which was punctuated with hearty applause. A very large and inspiring meeting was held in the evening, addressed by the following speakers: -Mr. J. T. Nowell, Bristol; Rev. J. Tertius Phillips, Cardiff; and Miss E. Williams, London. Mr. T. Millward, Ton, occupied the chair.

Porth Carnival and Sports. Meeting of Committee. The first meeting of the Porth Carnival and Sports Committee was held on Wednesday evening last at the Porth Hotel. There was a very fair attendance, and Councillor W T'. Davies, Bryngarw, was voted to the chair. Mr. Davies. opening the meeting, said his acceptance of the chair upon this occa- sion was but pro tem., as he did not believe in permanent chairmen. He had always advocated periodical changes in chairmanship, and he had no desire to depart from that policy in connection with the Porth Carnival. He would, how- ever, assure them of his hearty support though working as a humble member of the committee. Continuing, Mr. Davies said he did not like the prominence given him in the local Press. True, it was he who had originated the Carnival, but they had had a hard-working committee, who had done their best to make it a genuine success. The Carnivals already held were sufficient testimony to their energy and the excel- lence of their work. If there was need of assisting the hospital funds in the past, there was certainly need now, for two new wards had been added, with four beds in each ward, which meant an addi- tional cost of over P,320 annually. The hospital had always been supported by voluntary subscriptions, &c., and it was an indispensable institution in the town. He thought it therefore incumbent upon them to hold a Carnival this year again, and to do all in their power to assist in its upkeep. It was thereupon resolved to hold the Carnival and Sports on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 3rd and* 4th. Mr. Gwilym J. Morgan, Aldergrove Ter- race. was appointed secretary; and Mr. Hezekiah Davies assistant secretary. I Messrs. D. Watts Morgan (miners' agent) and E. S. Williams, M.E., were re-elected treasurers. I A deputation was also appointed to wait I' upon the T'ynycymmer authorities with a view of obtaining the field for this year again.
Children's Concert at Pentre The popularity of children's concerts was demonstrated on Friday evening, when the schoolroom of Moriah Chapel was taxed to its utmost with a large congre- gation to hear the singing of our recently formed Children's Choir, under the con- ductorship of Mr. Ben Davies, Pentre. This young choir has a good record, which it is intent on maintaining and improving as much as possible. Hitherto there has been a lack of support, especially finan- cial support; but now the choir has been well established and proved its quality, we trust that local support will be forth- coming to satisfy all requirements. The chairman on Friday was Mr. E. H. Davies (ju-Rr.), Brynheulog, Pentre. Mr. Tom Bonnell and Mr. E-van Evans, two noted local soloists who were kind enough to give their services at this concert, sang splendidly, although the former was in- disposed. Another famous prize-winner, Miss Gwladys May Davies, also assisted in making the concert a success, her reci- tations eliciting loud encores. As to the choir, their renderings were very good, notably in Y Nant a'r Blodeuyn" (Tom Price), which was sweet and effective. With a little more prac- tice this choir should secure the prize at the forthcoming Aberavon and Briton Ferry Eisteddfodau. The following prokramme was gone through: -Pianoforte solo, Mr. Johnny John solo, The Sorrows of Man," Miss Mattie Evans; solo. "Flee as a Bird," Master Gomer Phillips chorus, "Telynau'r Plant," the Choir; bass solo, The Bugler," Mr. Evan Evans; recitation, Tyr'd dan y ddeiliog lwyn," Miss Gwladys Davies; tenor solo, Tudno's Last Song," Mr. Tom Bonnell; chorus, Y Nant a'r Blodeuyn," the Choir solo, Yr Hogyn Drwg," Miss Ethel Jones; recitation, The Old Arm Chair," Miss Gwladys Davies (encored and responded with Gwalia Wen "); bass solo, "Cwymp Llewelyn," Mr. Evan Evans; recitation, "The Traveller," Miss Ellen Adams; solo, But the Lord is mindful of His own," Miss Mattie Evans; tenor solo, Nant y Mynydd," Mr Tom Bonnell. We congratulate the young conductor, Mr. Ben Davies, upon his work, and sin- cerely hope that the choir will meet with sufficient success to overcome the diffi- c-ulties hitherto encountered.

Royal Visit to Porth. Arrangements for Princess Louise's Reception. Dr. R. D. Chalke, M.A., presided over a public meeting held at the Court House, Porth, on Thursday evening last. The meeting was convened for organisation purposes in connection with the contem- plated Royal visit on July 23rd. The Chairman explained how Colonel Thompson had written to the Duke of Argyll and had received a reply to the effect that Their Royal Highnesses would break their journey at Porth. Colonel Thompson said that Her Royal Highness was coming to Trealaw on July 23rd in connection with the Memorial Hall, and on the following day would pro- ceed to Mardy to present the Sir Charles Warren Ambulance Shield. The following resolution was moved by the Colonel, and supported by. Mr. Wm. Evans (Thomas & Evans), Alderman W. H. Mathias, J.P., Councillor W. T. Davies, Messrs. John Williams and J. T. Jones :—i; That the inhabitants of Porth and other portions of the Nos. 8 and 9 Wards: hear with gratification of the pro- posed visit to Porth of Her Royal High- ness Princess Louise and the Duke of Argyll, and decide that all necessary arrangements be taken to give a welcome in a royal manner and befitting the occa- sion. The resolution was carried unanimously. Mr. Thompson thereupon outlined a scheme for their reception. The Royal visitors would be coming by road, so he suggested that they should be met at the lower end of Britannia, and that the Porth Fire Brigade, the Territorials, the Cymmer Ambulance Brigade, and the Porth Lads' Brigade should escort them to Porth, to where a grand stand would be erected opposite the Porth Farm, where an address could be presented to Her Royal Highness. Mr. Thompson was elected secretary, and a, representative committee was also appointed to carry out the necessary arrangements.
Cycling Accident at Llwynypla. A serious cycling accident occurred at Llwynypia about 3 o'clock on Saturday afternoon last. It appears that a young man about 16 years of age, named Wm. Geo. Roles, residing at 70, Clydach Road, Blaenclydach, was riding down the hill near the Llwynypia Conservative Club, when, it is supposed, he lost control of his machine, and came down the hill at a terrific pace, and crossing the main road, dashed into the plate-glass window of Mrs. Jenkins, fancy dealer. The lad was hurled through with great force, as he was found on the inside of the counter. Mr. Ben Brice, who heard the crash, immediately ran to the lad's assist- ance and picked him up from amid the debris in a terribly mutilated condition, and a doctor was immediately sent for. The lad was conveyed to his home, where it was found that he had sustained severe flesh wounds about the head and face. His legs were also cut badly, and he was in a very weak state through loss of blood. Grave hopes were entertained for his recovery, but we, are pleased to record that he is progressing favourably. In addition to the plate-glass being broken, many of the fancy articles were rendered practically valueless owing to being stained with the blood that flowed freely from the wounds of the unfortunate lad.
Wasting and Paralysis. Two Operations fail to benefit. A Lady's remarkable cure by DR. CASSELL'S TABLETS. Mrs. Webber, 62, Cecil Road, Cowick Street, Exeter, writes: I wish to let you know of the great benefit I have derived from Dr. Cassell's Tablets. I suffered from wasting of the chest, para- lysis of right arm and hand, loss of voice, and heart weakness; my doctor advised an operation, but as I had had two before and was no better, I refused. I tried many things all to no good until at last a f1"end advised me to take Dr. Cassell's Tablets. I did so with absolutely marvel- lous results. I shortly regained my voice and was able to move my arm and hand. I can walk now briskly and feel no bad heart effects and am better than I have been for years, and in fact I feel a new woman. I have put on much flesh, espe- pecially on my chest, and my friends are- astonished to see me cured and looking so well." Dr. Cassell's Tablets are a safe and certain cure for all forms of nerve and physical weakness, loss of flesh, pros- tration, heart weakness, anaemia, debility, children's weakness, indigestion, and stomach troubles. Price, IOtd., lIlt and 2/9, of all chemists.
Presentation Meeting at Porth. A most interesting and successful social tea and musical evening was held on Thursday last at Messrs. Thomas & Evans' Employees' Institute. A large and repre- sentative gathering, representing all sec- tions of the firm, partook of the good things provided. After the tables were cleared, Mr. Edwards, manager of the "Welsh Hills" Factory, took the chair, and expressed the pleasure it gave him to preside over such a representative audience. They had met to do honour to Mr. W. E. Thomas (mineral water department clerk), who was leaving the firm to enter upon a course of studies preliminary to entering the ministry. After the Chairman's eloquent address, the musical programme was gone through, which included selections of Welsh airs on the harp by Mr. Jenkins, Pontypridd tenor solo, Love me and the world is mine," Mr. Evan Davies; contralto solo, "Dim ond Deilen," Miss Martha Evans; bass solo, The Veteran's Song," Mr. D. P. Howells; soprano solo, "Japanese Love Song," Miss Emma Gough. Mr. W. E. Jenkins ably presided at the piano. The presentations were then made. Mr. L. W. Morgan, in handing over a purse of gold on behalf of friends and members of the Institute, expressed the pleasure it had always given him to work with Mr. Thomas, who had always been a most useful and energetic worker in connection with the Institute. Mr. W. R. Morgan, in a rousing address, testified to Mr. Thomas' strong personal influence and unvarying cour- tesy, qualities which would stand him in good stead during his ministerial career. He asked Mr. Thomas' acceptance of an oil-painting of himself as a token of the esteem in which he was held by all who came in contact with him. Mr. Willie Thomas suitably responded, thanking his friends and fellow-employees for presenting him with such tangible tokens of respect. The singing of the National Anthem and "Hen Wlad fy Nhadau" brought the proceedings to a close.
