RUGBY. PONTYPRIDD 3pts., TREHERBERT 0. Treherbert were- home to Pontypridd in a Glamorgan League match on Saturday. The home team were prepared for a hard game, because Pontypridd have been showing great form of late. The visitors were niinus ]:C.'s Jones and Evans, and J. Thomas. Pontypridd, opened, and were soon on pri e( the attack, but Owen Williams saved finely. From a penalty. W. Thomas kicked a lovely goal for the visitors. Tre- herbert, by strong forward rushes, got down to their opponents' line, and exacted a minor, Edgar Davies (inside half) having hard Îine", in not scoring. Pontypridd replied with, a fine forward rush. Han- bury put in a lofty kick, and Owen Wil- liams, smartly fielding on the drop, broke away, but was pulled down a few yards from the Pontypridd line. Morris secured in the open, and made a tricky and pretty run, but kicked rather wildly, forcing Pontypridd to concede L minor. Half-time then arrived. P.S. Owen restarted for Treherbert, and a. long kick, by W. Thomas found touch near the home line. Culverwell broke away from a scrummage and punted over the opposing three-quarters, but CMwill saved in plucky style. The Pontypridd hacks then participated in a, bout of passing, but Rogers was finely tackled by Hanbury. Ifrom a penalty, W. Thomas nearly scored another goal for the visitors. The state of the ground was against a good display of football, and the game, in consequence, developed into loose rushes, at which both sides were about equal. The Pontypridd backs showed the better combination, but individually Morris (Treherbert) deserved great com- mendation. W. D. Jones (Treherbert) and Hawkins (Pontypridd) among the forwards were well up for their, respec- tive TREORCHY Opts., FERNDALE 0. This was a Glamorgan League encoun- ter and the first match between these teams this season. The visitors entered the field fresh from their victory over Treherbert. and strong hopes were enter- tained of besmearing the colours of the cupholders. The Ferndale mascot-a. bulldo-was on the field, and the mas- sive cup won by Treorchy in the knock- out competition last Monday against Penygraig was also fielded." The start witnessed Fern dale instantly •attacking, which the homesters withstood admirably. G. Evans misfielded, J^d one of the visiting forwards was within ail ace of scoring. Treorchy, however, retaliated splendidly, and rushing play to the visitors' line, Dai Vaughan scored an excellent try near the corner nag, but the kick for goal failed. After a. fine bout of passing the cupholders opened up the game, and T. O. Jones and Jack Lewis got as near as possible to the line, Daly James landed a goal from a place kick, the result of Ferndale being penalised. When., play was resumed, the game developed into a tumble between the forwards, the visitors holding their own in the continual rushes. Biddiscombe was placed in a good position for a drop goal. but failed. Monotonous scrums followed, neither side being able to make headway. Towards the end it was im- possible to distinguish the players, as it was completely dark. TREHERBERT EX-SCHOOLBOYS 0, < PENRHYS STARS 0. A League match, under the auspices of the Rhondda Old Boys' League, was played by the above teams at Tylorstown on Saturday. The weather was far from being favourable, but, happily, the rain Peiirhys started strongly against the wind, which was blowing with some violence. Treherbert attacked hotly, the backs shaping well, but were not served by the forwards over-often, Scrums were formed under the home goalposts and after breaking up, P. R. Raymond (for- ward) got over for Treherbert from a melee He was recalled by the referee, and another scrum was ordered. from this the ball was dribbled over the Pen- rhys line, and R. Pitman (outside half) dived for it and touched down, thus scoring a try under the posts. Howevei, in answer to Treherbert's appeal for a try, the referee awarded a minor! Trc- herbert still pressed until half-time. With the wind in their favour, Pen- rhys were expected to win, but a sur- prise wa.s in store for them. For most of the second moiety, nearly all the aggressive work was done, by the J^x- Schoolboys, the team as a whole display- ing fine stamina. They were the hettei side by far, and should have won liar the referee been better able to distin- guish between the colours of the jerseys of the respective teams. B. Abraham, 1. James T. Griffiths. W. Williams J. Evans' T• Davies, W. E- Pearce and P. Raymond did fine work for the Ex- Schoolboys.

Considering the sloppy state, of the ground, the Tr-eorchy-Ferndale match was fairly interesting, and Ferndale in the first half were completely outclassed. The bouts of passing showed that, but for the state of the ground. Treorchy would no doubt have added to their score. The best player for the visitors on Saturday was Biddiscombe. He was a sound defence, but committed one or two "Simple blunders. Daly James' kicks to touch were mag- nificent. T. O. Jones and Jack Lewis played an excellent gaiiie,, and were once within inches of the line. Dai Vaughan put in a splendid account of himself, as also did Phil Salisbury. Both are young players, and are. looking forward to a very successful football career. George Meadon played a fine game at right half for the WiUiamstown Crescents and combined well with old Steamer. Evan White, new left half for the Crescents, has proved himself worthy of that place in the team. Jack Doggett played the game of his life against Abertridwr; indeed, his wonderful runs and telling shots un- doubtedly proved the hitter's undoing. 11
A DISHONEST SYSTEM. "There is nothing in public affairs that tends more to make men dishonest than the system of Protection, It was so in this country before our Free Trade era; it is so now in the United States. There is no meanness to which those who gain by tariff obstruction to trade will not stoop, to continue a system by which they profit at the expense of the consuming public." JOHN BRIGHT.

"left to Haphazard." ill Metros" in the Rhondda. Remarkable Allegations. Last week's Police Review" pub- lished an article containing some remark- able allegations against those in autho- rity at Scotland Yard. The article. which is entitled "Our Metropolitan Brethren in Wales," is as follows Whilst party politicians at cross pur- poses are trying to discredit the police who have been sent to GlamJiganshire to do military work in hostile surround- ings, the men themselves, if the reports sent home are accurate, have been sub- jected to neglect and ili-treatnient at the hands of the constituted authority at headquarters. The statements that have reached us allege that some of them have been housed in sheds and barns, and that no arrangements have been made to surmly them with rugs or blankets to cover them at night. The men had only their own great-coats for a covering, and were obliged to sleep in their day uniform. Are there no rugs stored at New Scotland Yard? If not. surely some efficient- officers otight to have been empowered to pro- vide them, and some sort of a commis- sariat ought to have been improvised to procure food and clothing, and do what was necessary to fit the men for their arduous duties. Some sections of the men so left to haphazard have, we are told, fallen into good hands at hotels, but others have had to ask for rations from the military authorities; and the men so supplied have been notified by telegrams from headquarters that the cost of rations so supplied will be deducted from their wages and paid to the mili- tary authorities. Mr. Churchill has promised to provide extra pay, but all men are off pay as far as Scotland Yard is concerned, and at present there seems no prospect of their getting their share of the money until the Receiver presents his account to the Glamorgan County and obtains payment from that source. This would mean that the men might have to wait weeks if not months, for their money after their return to London. The wives left at home have received the dole of lis. for the week ended 13th November. One would think that full wages would lie paid as usual, and that special provision would be made on the ground for necessary expenditure in Wales, the Authorities advancing the money until they may be able to recoup themselves from the Glamorganshire County Authorities. The Home Secretary has stated, doubtless as officially informed, that no man objected to go to Wales. We are assured they were never asked. Many of them were sent off the street without any preparation. Some sort of arrange- ments were made to send them changes of clothing, and the parcels furnished by their wives were collected from the various police stations by the Great Wes- tern Railway Company. WIleD. how- ever, these parcels reached their destina- tion there was no arrangement for receiving and storing them, and they had to be returned to London. Some amount of endurance and hard- ship in such an emergency might be looked for, but the lapses and mishaps as reported to us. point to the want, of due care and capacity and to culpable negli- gence at headquarters. The women and children at home might surely have been better cared for, and the irritation mani- fested by the wives is expressed in terms that might be usefully conveyed to New Scotland Yard. Better provision should certainly be made for the proper housing and feeding of men sent into the midst of a hostile population in a bleak and comfortless district where no surplus accommodation exists. A comparatively small staff set apart to provide for their food and bed- ding, and for their decent necessities, would appear to, have been one of the first considerations at headquarters. The Home Secretary personally has quit. enough on his hands at the present crisis. Nevertheless, he is the responsible head of the Metropolitan nolice, and we can- not help feeling that he has strong ground of complaint that the chief officials at New Scotland Yard have not better upheld his credit and their own by a more adequate provision for the inevitable exigencies that should have been foreseen by persons of ordinary capacity and intelligence."
Weekly Stock Market j Report. [From T. Mitchelson & Co. Stock and Share Brokers, Cardiff and Swan sea. j There is very little of a startling nature to communicate this week in the general markets, though local stocks and securities have been rather firm. Now that the election disturbance is out of the way, and it looks as though colliery- disputes may be settled, shortly, there is every reason to look forward to better prices for local stocks and securities, and investors will do wisely to purchase at. present prices, rather than wait until the upward movement is more clearly defined. We advised our readers Jast week of the advisability of a purchase of Spillers and Bakers tl fully paid Ordinary shares. They have now firmed, and the market seems practically all buyers at about 38s. We drew attention last week to the wonderful position of this Company how that Reserves now reached the 'huge total of £ 310.000—practically a third of the total capital, while the last balance sheet showed £ 306,1(53 to the credit of profit and loss, also nearly one-third of the total capital. Altogether, we are of the opinion that these shares should be easily worth £2, and we should not be in the slightest degree surprised if thev went to a higher vriee than this. We therefore look upon a purchase at the present price as a most desirable holding for the investor desiring a sound and remunerative investment. Tredegar A n shares have been quietly firm at about 17s. fid. and these should be good for a higher quotation. The new Oakdale Collieries Company, Ltd., which is the entire property of the Tredegar Company, should soon make a vast improvement in the proifcs of the Tredegar Company, resulting in increased dividends, and consequently higher prices. A sound investment that has been having considerable local attention latelv are the Ll fully paid shares of the Coliseum Syndicate, Ltd.. that one might consider a sound investment, yield- ing about 7 per cent., with every "pros- pect of a substantial rise in price taking place. In fact, we are so impressed with the strength of this Company that these t* it) shares possess exceptional attraction for the investor. The financial strength of the Company is almost unique. The return to the investor is high, and the policy of the directors is one that should result in the dividends increasing and the price of the shares reaching a much higher levol. The total Ordinary capital of the Com- pany is only £ 44,000. while Debenture issues amount to about £ 148,000. This lowness of capital is attributable to the fact that the Company was reconstructed some time ago, and present shareholders are reaping the benefit of a large amount of capital expenditure prior to the re- construction. The site is one of the finest in London, and the building, with freehold and leasehold land, cost origin- ally over £ 400.000. The extraordinarily low present capital is therefore obvious. The Company is making exceptionally high profits; for the current year we understand that earnings are sufficient to pay a dividend at the rate of 70 per cent, upon the Ordinary capital, after payment of Debenture interest. We do not expect that this full amount will be distributed, as the policy of the directors has been to gradually pay off the Deben- tures, and we expect that before long these will have been very substantially reduced. This, naturally, must. have the effect of considerably enhancing the value of, and also the dividend upon, the Ordinary shares. The dividend for the past year was at the rate of 20 per cent. For the current year an interim dividend of 20 per cent. liasl been paid, contrasting favourably with the interim last year of 15 per cent., and we should say that the final dividend, due early in the New Year, will make the annual distribution 20 to 30 per cent. The £ 1 fully paid shares are now stand- ing at k3 3s. 9d.— £ 3 6s. 3d., at which price we consider them eminently desir- able as a lucrative investment, that will in all probability eventually rise to jE4 or even t5. We would lay special emphasis upon the exceptionally low share capital and tremendously high profits, which have all the appearance of being well maintained, and which must necessarily benefit the shareholders in a very substantial man- ner. This may be brought about either by drastically reducing the Debentures, which would' mean very much larger dividends even than those now paid, or, as is hoped in some quarters, the share capital may be increased by means of a bonus share to the shareholders. In either eventuality the shareholders should receive a handsome return from their investment. The Five Per Cent. First Mortgage Debentures are now standing at par, and the Six Per Cent. Second Mortgage Debentures (of which there are about E38,000) at 101 per cent.

ASSOCIATION. BLAENRHONDDA 2gls.. TREHER- BERT 1. Steps are being taken to form a Soccer team at Treherbert, and on Monday a team representing Treherbert played a match on the Athletic Grounds versus Blaenrhondda (top of Second Division of
Shots for Goal. Bravo 1 Ton, To draw with Cardiff City on their own ground is no mean feat. The Reds have at last come into their own, and in Saturday's game more than recovered their lost prestige. The result-a draw—was exceptionally lucky for the City men. Ton was by far the better team in every way. The second half, the boys were all over them. It is true Ton missed several chances to score, and this, plus a weak referee, was decidedly hard lines. Even through a Cardiffian's spectacles Cardiff were out and out the weaker side. Now this is quite enough. Ton must have been in champion form!! The energetic secretary, Mr. W. E. Chillington, finds an outlet for his energy in things other than football. He has been successful in obtaining the sum of five guineas from the Football League towards the fund for the feeding of the Gelli school children. It should be mentioned, too, that all the players very generously contributed towards the same deserving cause. What a rarity League points must be to Treherbert R.F-C. On Saturday, at Treherbert, Pontypridd robbed them of two more points by the score of three points (penalty goal) to nil. The game as a spectacle was not great, but Treherbert, it must be admitted, put up a good fight against their sturdy oppo- nents, and to be beaten by a penalty goal was hard luck. So, buck up, Tfaherbert! Treherbert Ex-Schoolboys played at Tylorstown on Saturday versus Penrhys Stars, this being their second League match of the season. They made a point- less draw, and thus maintained their un- beaten League record of two seasons. At Mardy on Saturday, Penyrenglyn All Whites were again defeated. The score was 6 points to 5-a very narrow squeak for Mardy. It's high time that the Whites started winning for a change; The outlook is very gloomy indeed with Treherbert Reserves R.F.C. (a Rhondda Senior League team), and it appears that the club is on the verge of dissolution. Now boys, rally round Mr. T. J. Pere- grine. he is a capable secretary, and an energetic worker! The newly-formed Treherbert A.F.C. gave Blaenrhondda A.F.C. a tough struggle on Monday last, and were only defeated by ill-luck, the score being 2 goals to 1. Rugby has been losing ground at Tre- herbert for several years past, and interest in the handling code has reached a minimum. It is doubtful, however, whether Soccer will ever regain this lost ground, unless a really good organisation is founded in the locality. First-class Soccer is necessary.
THE ONLY WAY to protect your VOTE is to get rid of the Lords' VETO.
After the Elections are Over. Those electors whose votes were influ- enced at the General Election last January by alarmist statements circu- lated by the Tories as to the condition of the British Navy will read with more than ordinary interest the following ex- tracts from articles published by the Times newspaper, a Tory journal. When the elections were over, and there was, therefore, no further need for a scare, a Times article (on January 25tli, 1910), dealing with Lord Fisher's Administration, concluded as follows — The facts and figures cited above speak for themselves. They show, in our judgment, beyond dispute that, even when all due weight is given to legiti- mate differences of opinion concerning naval policy at large, Lord Fisher leaves the Navy far stronger and better organ- ised than he found it better equipped and better disposed for the defence alike of the United Kingdom and of the Empire, and purged as by fire of many of those obese and unchallenged old things that stifled and overlay it in the past. It is a new Navy that he has given us, instinct with his own fearless spirit of progress and efficiency. The period of transition has been unhappily beset with bitter controversies and pain- ful antagonisms. But these, let us hope, are now things of the past. His suc- cessors will hold fast to the good that he has accomplished and will not be slow to correct anything that may prove to have been done amiss. But they will not undo the main fabric of his work. That is established on solid foundations which will' still stand fast when all the toil of the achievement is forgotten." On February 7th, 1910, a "Times" article on our Navy thus summed up its position as compared with the German and American Navies: — The position about May should be- ten British, four German, and two American battleships and cruisers of the Dreadnought type completed. Before December, however, two more British ships will be added to the list, and pos- sibly one German, the Von der Tann.' Thus, for this year. in spite of the acceleration in construction abroad, the two-Power standard, as well as that of the two keels to one, will have been more than maintained." On the following day, February 8th, 1910, a Times article on the German and the United States shipbuilding pro- grammes summed up the situation as follows: — If Germany succeeds in completing all the ships of her 1909 programme by March, 1912, she will have thirteen vessels of the Dreadnought type in the water to our twenty. At the same time the United States will have six Dread- noughts complete; so that at that date we shall have maintained the two-Power standard in Dreadnoughts, while our preponderance in pre-Dreadnought ships, including the two Lord Nelsons, will be more than equivalent to a 10 per cent. margin." SO MUCH FOR THE BOGY rrALES about Liberal neglect of the Navy circulated last January by the Tories and their DEAR FRIEND, MR. BLATCHFORD
Clerks and Trades Unionism. Interesting Meeting at Pentre. Much enthusiasm was displayed at a meeting held at Collier's Restaurant, Pentre, on Friday evening of last week, when addresses, on the objects and advan- tages of the National Union of Clerks were delivered by Mr. A. J. Williams (Messrs. Pughe and Davey), Pontypridd, and others. Councillor Edward Jones, Pentre, pre- sided, and said he was always anxious to do what he could for Trades Unions a.nd Friendly Societies (applause). He strongly advised clerks to organise and protect themselves against injustices, favouritism, etc. This was the only way in which they could do. The Union, too, need not only be a fighting force, bat one which would, bring them closer together socially and in a manner which would uplift them., broaden their minds, and fit them for tackling important ques- tions of the day. M u. A. J. Williams said there were in the country to-day 650,000 clerks, ex- cluding the exotic plant found in Govern- ment offices (laughter). The clerks were, without organisation, powerless in the hands of their employers. A clerk need have no delusions as to his value. It was wonderful how the workmen of Great Britain had worked up the great Trades Unions they had to-day. Besides this, the lawyer had his society, which jealously guarded his interests; the barrister, the doctor, and, in fact, every profession was protected. They found, too, that not only was the navvy organ- ised. but that, like others, he was repre- sented in Parliament (hear, hear). It w as the duty of clerks to make a. union to support the weaker clerk (applause). To adjust their grievances they must have an union of the strength and ability of the National Union of Clerks. He did did not mean that they must strike. The Union was not adopting a militant atti- tude unless quite necessary. They were demanding better conditions, but they must first of all deserve at least better pay. The clerk, as a rule. was rather conceited and snobbish he turned up his nose at a Trades Union a man in dirty clothes was not quite the sort of man to mix up with. It was, the speaker thought, an awful farce. The conditions under which some clerks worked, proceeded the speaker, left great room for improvement. It was a sad and ghastly truth that 25 per cent. of their number died from consumption, and a, great percentage of them at an early age. The wages paid in some cases were totally inadequate, and in cases where a clerk was married and had a family, it was sometimes too true that to keep his family respectable he fell into temptation and became a criminal. It was high, time the clerk realised the value of organisation, and the longer lie delayed, so long would the day of eman- cipation be postponed (cheers). Mr. Lewis Rees, Wattstown (the secre- tary of the Pontypridd branch, detailed the benefts for unemployment, sickness and death under the Union, and pointed out that those who were members of Friendly Societies could join the Union for the sum of ld. per week, without the benefits, named. The Union was steadily advancing onwards, and showed signs of some day becoming a great and powerful organisation. Answering questions later, Mr. Rees replied to the question as to whether the Union was a Socialistic one, that all shades of political opinion were repre- sented, and that of the three gentlemen responsible for the control of the official organ, The Clerk, one was a Conser- organ, The Clerk, one was a Conser- vative, one a Liberal, and the other a Socialist, and that the three worked in perfect harmony for the erood of the clerks throughout the country. Mr. A. J. Jenkins, Porth, said that amongst the municipal clerks there was some division as to which they should join of several associations, but he thought the sspeches delivered that evening would materially assist them in arriving at a decision (applause). Mr. John Davies (Gas and Water) said that as one who had spent very many years in office life without an union, he thought it was full time they Were organised, and lie had attended to show his sympathy with the movement (av- plause). Other speeches were delivered by Mr. Isaac T. Rees (Ton Co-operative) and Mr. Hill. On the proposition of Mr. John Rees (Gas and Water), seconded by Mr. Rhys E. Powell (Treorchy), a. hearty vote of thanks was accorded Mr. Williams for his able address. Mr. W. Howell and Mr. G. Jones re- spectively proposed and seconded a vote of thanks to the chairman, which was carried with acclamation.
Catarrhal Coids and Stubborn Coughs Famous Girl Preachers cured by VENO'S LIGHTNING COUGH CURE. Mrs. Storr. the well-known evangelist, and mother of Frances and Rose Bradley Storr, the famous girl preachers, writing from 48, Abbott Street, Doncaster, says: My two girls were never free from a. stubborn choking cough and nasal catarrh. Frances had her tonsils cut, but the cough got chronic and I was frightened of her going into consumption. I tried everything, but nothing did any good until I tried Veno's Lightning Cough I Cure. I gave her the first dose one afternoon, and it immediately brought up the phlegm, and stopped the cough, and the same evening she preached to a crowded congregation.

I League). There was a good number of spectators. Dr. D. C. Williams, Treher- bert, honoured the occasion bv kicking off. Treherbert had the better of the game in the first half, and opened tfce scoring as a result of some pretty combined play between Sam Davies (inside right) and G. Watkins (right wing), the former com- pleting the movement with a good shot. Blaenrhondda attacked hotly after the interval. They resorted to rushing, and their play was utterly devoid of any- thing like good combination. Their first goal was obtained through Felton (Tre- herbert) kicking into his own goal, and later, they were awarded a penalty, from wh'icli the deciding goal was kicked. The ground was a veritable quagmire, this being largely the cause of so little combination between the players. Blaen- rhondda were the better trained team, but they were decidedly lucky in win- ning. LANCASHIRE FUSILIERS Ggls., PEN- RHIWFER ALBIONS 2. The Fusiliers seem to have' come into great popularity in the football circles of Mid-Rhondda. On Saturday last they played on the Albions' ground, captained by Hibbert. Mr. Barney Steele refereed. 'From the outset the Lancashire men had the best of matters, Cransby opening the account with a good shot, the result of a. fine bit of combination. The second and third, goals for the visitors were notched in quick succession by Godfrey and Apple-ton. A fine spurt was put on by the homesters, which resulted in the visiting goalie being beaten, making the score 3-1 at half-time. From the restart, the Albions put heart and soul into the game, but were out- classed by the soldiers, their defence being quite sound. Good bouts of com- bination were witnessed during the second half, in which Appleton, Godfrey and Hibbert scored a goal each. But the homesters were not to be denied, and their centre forward put a beautiful shot through the posts. No further score was! registered. The home team were completely out- I classed, but played up pluckily through- out the game. This was only their third defeat of the season. The defence of the visitors was excellent. WILLIAM STOWN CRESCENTS 2gls., ABERTRIDWR 0. The Crescents met Abertridwr away on Saturday last and returned home victors by the comfortable margin of 2—0. The visiting forwards played a magnificent game, being far superior to their oppo- nents both in the tight and open. Churchill, the home custodian, played a great game, and performed some excel- lent saves. The scorers. were Doggett and D. Thomas. The Crescents' record up to date is:—Played 14, won 12, lost 1, drawn 1; goals for, 50; against, 21. MARDY FOOTBALL. Both the Premiers and the Reserves had a blank day on Saturday, the incle- ment weather having upset the arrange- ments for both teams. We. regret that Strugnell, who has been playing on the top of his form for Mardy lately, has met with an accident which is likely to incapacitate him for some weeks. He has dislocated his elbow, and his absence is sure to be felt in the team.
