H Editorial Notes. Political warfare is fruitful in phrase- making which remains long in the speech of the people. They neither spin nor toil" characterisation of Chamberlain comes up very often, and will certainly be heard with annoying frequency to the ducal party in the coming tussle with the House of Lords. The Radical Party are very much indebted to the Old Joseph for good striking armoury in the political give-and-take. In fact, his most immortal sayings were uttered when he was on our side of the field, thus proving clearly that the best things said and done are said and done for the people. Mr. Balfour men- tioned "frigid, calculated lie" when criticising the Lord Advocate of Scotland. This was very much offside, particularly when said by the Leader of the Party which is bolstered by a hireling Press trading wholesale in frigid, calculated lying." Tariff Reformers actually wallow in "rigid, calculated lies if what the Lord Advocate asked was such. What of the folloiNiiig:-(a) The foreigner shall pay the tax; (b) there shall be no in- crease in the cost of living; (c) wages shall be higher; and (d) there shall be work for all These things are said by Tariff Reformers, and even put into gramophones, and when people put a false statement into a machine there is no mis- taking the frigid, calculated lie char- acter of the whole business. They know that Tariff Reform will increase the cost of living, and they know equally well that the people will be ground and not the rich classes. Even Lord Milner admitted that Tariff Reform will increase the cost of living, and the Times," in giving its views on the election of Bermondsey, said that the real issue before the country was whether this country will sanction the Budget, with all the germs of Social- ism which it manifestly contains, or whether they will prefer Tariff Reform, even though for a time Tariff Reform may increase the price of many commodities." And yet the frigid, calculated lie of no increased cost of living is travelling from the nropaganda platforms of. which Mr. Balfour is the head and front. Then what price his unctuous denunciations of anybody? He would do well to remember that he who would heal a wound must not handle it." Mr. Balfour's inward knowledge cannot fail to tell him that his great demonstra- tion for "Old Pensions" at the present crisis squares very badly with his per- formances in the country and the House when Old Pensions were in the legislative making. But he who says what he likes, must hear what he does not like," and, therefore, a few words on the promises and performances of Mr. Balfour on Old Age Pensions must not be repressed. The legend of Tory support of Old Age Pen- sions must be examined in the light of stern facts. On the Kith June, 1908, on the second reading only 42 Tories voted for it, twenty-nine voted against it, and twenty-one were absent from the division. On the third reading eleven voted against the Bill, twelve for it, and one hundred and forty abstained. The House of Lords carried an amendment limiting the opera- tion of the Act to seven years. This was declared, with other amendments, to be a breach of the privileges of the.Commons, and the Peers had to content themselves with a resolution of protest. 'These are the facts, and if the Tories had any love for Old Age Pensions, they dissembled it wonderfully. What of the House of Lords ? If they had their way, there would be no Old Age Pensions to-day. The House of Lords has and does accept the signals of Mr. Balfour, and it is all humbug and pretention to annear a friend of Old Age Pensions. And is it not a "frigid, calculated truth" to say that for a long space of years at series of elections the Tories made pensions a pawn in the party game? Men who are deluded time after time with empty promises, do not forget this easily, and the game of bluff which is now so stupidly played by the Tories is too well understood to be accepted only as sham indignation which Mr. Balfour may think fit to display. Mr. Chamberlain had his chances, and would have liked the country in 1906 to accept his nostrum of finding, the money through Tariff Reform. The supertax and the increment land tax are better ways. Those who have superfluities (should sympathise with those of bare necessities, and do it, not as special favour, but as a routine right.

Mr C. Edmunds, M.E., Pentre. The death is announced of Mr. Cas- wallon Edmunds, manager of-the Pentre Colliery, which took place on Monday night, after a few weeks' illness. The funeral will take place on Friday at Tre- forest. Deceased had been connected with mining all his life. For many years he had managed the Pentre Pits (Messrs. Cory Brothers, Limited), and enjoyed the respect of both proprietors and workmen. A keen follower of sport, he rendered ready support to football, cricket, and quoits.
Mrs. E. Evans, Treherbert. With much regret we chronicle the demise of'Mrs. Eliza Evans. Smith Cot- tage, Treherbert, who passed away on Tuesday evening, at the ripe old age of 90 years. Deceased was the owner of a vast amount of property at Treherbert and elsewhere. She was the eldest daugh- ter of the late Captain Stone, Weston- super-Mare, and was born at Beedon Vicarage in that locality. She was one of the oldest inhabitants of the Rhondda, and a very popular woman in her time. Deceased, who was one of the first church- women at Treherbert, was the widow of the late Mr. John Henry Evans, the renowned Welsh harpist. Mr. Evans was descended from an old Rhondda Valley family, having been born at the Pandy Factory. After having mastered the intricacies of harp playing, he made several tours on the Continent, visiting the principal towns of France, Germany, Belgium, and Holland. He was also instrumental in establishing several Cymreigyddion Societies in many of the large English towns. Shortly afterwards he visited Somerset, where he met and married tlig late Mrs. Eliza Evans. For some time he kept an hotel at Weston, but afterwards returned to Glamorgan, and set up in business at Pontypridd, subsequently removing; to the Cross Keys, Tonypandy. He later retired from busi- ness, devoting himself entirely to public entertaining, and received the appoint- ment of harpist to Caroline Countess of Dunraven, at whose residence, Dunraven Castle, his services were in constant requisition. The Countess very kindly reserved for him a piece of land on her estate at Treherbert to build an hotel- the Wyndham Hotel—where he afterwards resided for some years. Mrs. Evans leaves two sons and three daughters, namely, Mr. Caleb Evans, Smith Cottage, Treher- bert Mr. Alfred Evans, Violet Villa, Putney, London: Mrs. Amy Emmanuel, Grove Villa, Treherbert; Mrs. Collins, Britannia House, Ynyswen; and Mrs. Whalquest, Cathedral Road, Cardiff.
Correspondence. The Biography of the late Thomas E. Ellis, M.P. To the Editor of the Rhondda Leader." Sir,—In order to complete the autho- rised Biography of my husband, which has been undertaken by Messrs. O. M. Edwards and D. R. Daniel, it has been found necessary to procure further details of the part he took in the various movements with which he was connected during the last ten years of his life. Such information as can be obtained from public sources has been mostly secured, but there must remain a large mass of correspondence between him and his friends as to movements in which he was interested. In response to a former appeal, many such letters were received, but as that appeal may have escaped the attention of many of my husband's friends, I have determined to make this further request for such letters, which will be carefully preserved, and duly returned to their proper owners.—Yours faithfully, ANNIE J. ELLIS. 6, Laura Place, Aberystwyth. To the Editor of the Rhondda Leader." Sir,—In the course of the Rhondda Musings in last week's issue, you state That the Unionist printers turned up strong at Tonypandy to hear the only printer M.P." at a recent I.L.P. meeting. Your correspondent is hardly fair to cur ancient craft in making the statement, as there are four printer M.P.'s, viz., Messrs. Summerbell (Sunderland), Nannetti (Dublin), Bowerinan (Deptford), and the hon. member for Norwich, Mr. G. H. Roberts. The Unionist printers were also alleged to have been "raw" when they found that the printing for this meeting had been executed at Manchester, while out- of-works were being maintained in the district. This statement is also more picturesque than accurate; we are fortu- nate enough in having no out-of-works to maintain at present, and even if we had, our organisation has no control over the I.L.P. branch, who were accused of trying to starve the local Caxtons.—Yours truly, H. G. TRAVESS, Secretary Rhondda Valleys' Branch Typographical Association.
