The natural course of the water was into the pond, and not across the road. David Evans. an old gentleman of 88 said he had -been tenant of Rhydyfenne farm for 13 years. He left it 44 vears ago. He had been living dose by ever since.' During the time he lived at Rhydyfenne the Menne brook ran past the yard gate into the pond. The water sprung from Rhydyfenne land. It used to cross the road at Ffongoi when the S^toi was full. The hedge in dispute belonged to Rhvdv- fenne farm. and he had repaired it during his ten- ancy. The Court then adjourned for On the resumption Mr. Parsons said that he and Mr. James thought that the ease milht be shortened if his Honour visited the spot- His Honour agreed, and said he would visit the place on Tuesday. Mr Davies. Abereinon. a farmer, said he was born -within a mile of Rhydyfenne. Thirty-five years ago he worked at Khydyfenne. where he remained for about four years. He knew of the Rhvdvfenne pond which came from Pantydefaid.. He v had re- paired the hrdee in question to stop cattle getting through. John Williams. 53 years of age. said he went to Rhvdvfenne as a servant boy in 1877. He was there for the vear. and then visited the farm for about two vears The tenant at that time was Simon Jones, father of the two first witnesses. At the time ho was there the stream was divided at the rond. Most of the water, however, went to the road at Rhydy- fenne. z John Thomas. Glanyrafon. 55 years of age. said that he had lived at Rhvdowengoed_ about half a mile from Rhvdvfenne. for years. He had worked at Rhvdvfenne. He remembered the brook ninning into the Fron field. After it cam,, to the Fron it passed into Rhydyfenne field. There wai. no obstacle in the way. Some of the water run out across the road and then back tiirough a gateway to Rhydyfenne. Edward Thomas, Blaenmene. surveyor to the Llan- dyssul Rural District Council. said he had been sub- agent to Mr. John Thomas and Mr. Will. Jones, and knew the properties well. He said that very little of the water went over the roadway. The gutter running across Frongoi was made a-bout 12 years ago. Josiah Jones, husband of complainant, said that he had seen the stream lately, and there were stones put there with the object of diverting the water. Sometimes the stones were taken away and put back again. The channel along Frongoi field was artificial. Mr. Parsons, for defendant, submitted that the water now used was the same as 40 years ago. Down to about 13 years ago very little water was allowed to run on to plaintiff's land, and practically the whole of the water flowed across the road. Plaintiff had a water wheel built and wanted water. This water she had from defendant. For this purpose stones were put down in the brook to divert the flow. He produced agreements between plaintiff and defendant. William Jones, the defendant, said he had been at Pantydefaid for 19 years. He had never diverted the water course. The same trench or channel now complained of had been there for 25 years. There had been no alteration at all. It was used for irriga- tion. and when that had been done the natural course was allowed to have its way. David Jones, John Jones, Joseph Jones, and Teddy Parker also gave evidence. His Honour decided to visit the place on the following day, and reserved judgment until the next Court.

I K DWEll Y TOWN COUNCIL A monthly meeting of the Town Council was held at the Town Hall on Friday, tho 15th inst. ,at 7 p.m. The Mayor, Councillor George E. Bowen was in the chair, and there were present, Alder- men 1). G. Anthony. W. Wilkins. Thos. Reynolds, and S. H. Anthony; Councillors 'iJayid Davies, John Morgan (Water-street), Thomas Daviea. J. Morgan (Priory-street), Edmund Cole. and David Phillips, together with Mr. W. R. Jainej, town clerk, Dr. T. R. Griffiths, Medical Officer of Health Mr. John Morgan, surveyor, and Mr. John Davies. inspector. TOWN REFUSE. The General Purposps Committee recommended that a set of drain cleaning tools be obtained for the use of the Corporation offioials. Alderman Wilkins complained of the practice of householders who put out rubbish after the Cor- poration cart had passed. Garden refuse was also deposited on the roadside for removal by the cart. This should not be allowed. Councillor T. Davies said this was certainly a matter that required attention. Many house- holders did not put tho refuse int-o proper recept- acles, but simply deposited it on tfce road. The Mayor—This is a state of affairs that should not be tolerated. All rubbish should bo put in boxes or buckets adapted for the purpose. Alderman Reynolds gave instances of flagrant disregard of the Council's regulations. jUie In- spector must report cas, to the Council and submit the names of the offenders. Coimeiiior Cole agreed. There should be no favour shown to any. He suggested the issuing of warning notices, which should also furnish the days on which the cart went round. Prosecutions should follow the disregarding of notice. Coun. J. Morgan (Water-street) said that there had been occasions when th cart had failou to go round. He moved that warning notices be issued, and this was carried. SANITARY AND HIGHWAYS. Plans of two new houses to be built at Cenfy by Mr. W. Beynon were submitted and passed. Aid. Wilkins thought that after plans were passed the houses should be built within a corlain time, In this way alone, would it be possible to ensure building in strict accordance with the plans. The Clerk pointed out that the bye-laws con- tained no time limit. Coun. Morgan (Water-street) was of the opinion that specifications should be submitted with the plans. This would do away with jerry building. HORTICULTURE. It was decided to apply to the County Council for lectures in horticulture poultry keeping, and dairying. Ald. D. G. Anthony said that he was glad to see that something was being done in the interests of agriculture, which, although it was the back- bone of every industry, was neglected more than any other. The pppointment of Mr. Daniel John as organ- izer of agriculture, was notified, and the Clerk was instructed to intimate to the County Council the desire of the Council to co-operate with the new official. NATIONAL LIBRARY OF WALES. An appeal signed by Sir John Williams, for a contribution to the funds of the National Library of Wales was read. Ald. D. G. Anthony proposed that consideration of the matter be deferred for a month, so that members might have time to think over it. There being no seconder, the letter was allowed to lie on the table. BALANCE SHEET. Tho balance sheet and auditor's report for the half-year ended Lady Day was presented, and ordered to be printed. ROGER LEY WELL. At the last meeting it was resolved to open the well at Roger Lev. and to disconnect the pipe con- veying water to Roger Ley farm. The Mayor reported that the well bad been opened, but the pipe had not been disconnected. He had gone up with Mr. Alfred Stephens to the well and the farm. The supply of water was very small, and a quarter-inch pipe could take it all. A long discussion ensued, and ultimately, on the proposition of Coun. Morgan (Water-street), secon- ded by Coun. Phillips, it was agreed to appoint a deputation to wait on Mr. Stephens, the aeputa- tion to consist of the Mayor. Coun. Morgan (Water-street), and Coun. Phillips. TERRITORIALS. The Mayor reported that he had received an application from the Commanding Officer of the Llitnelly Engineers for a supply of water for the corps during their three-days' encampment near Gardde from the Saturday preceding Whit-MonJay. Coun. Cole said he was not much of a soldier himbelf—(laughter)—but he was willing to share the water with these soldiers. He proposed that the application be granted. Coun. Thomas Davies seconded, and it was car- ried. DISTRICT NURSE. The Mayor brought forward the matter of ob- taining a District Nurse. The urgent need for one was brought forcibly to their minds by recent accidents and cases of sickness in —10 town. Members generally spoke in favour of the pro- ject, and it was decided to have a special meeting of the Council to arrange details in connection with a public meeting to be held in the near future.

The chitir was occupied by Mr. James, Arthach. The drama, which is a new entertainment in this locality, drew naturally a crowd of [>eople, among whom were curious and critical seekers. The scenes in their various stages were simple and effective and were ably depicted by the performers, some of whom could well claim higher honours on the stage. The audience were kept spellbound during the three hours performance, and were loud in praise of what they had seen and heard.

r THE LLANGADOCK WATER SUPPLY QUESTION DISCUSSE^ BY THE PARISH MEETING. GENEROUS OFFER BY MR. E. P. LLOYD. Mil. MERVYN PEEL GIVES THE LEGAL ASPECT. Mr. E. P. Lloyd, J.P., D.L., presided over a parish meeting held at Llangadock on Tuesday even- ing to consider the question of a water supply for tho town. Amongst those present were Col. Lloyd Harries, Llwyndewi; Mr. Mervyn Peel, Mr. E. Har- ries, D.C., and Mr. Joseph, Church House. The Chairman said that the llwctHllg had bevn convened as a result of a coanmunie«tion from the Llandovery Rural District Council and the object was to have a proper water supply for the town of Llungadock. Things had been delayed and so many schemes had been spoken of that at last the Local Government Board got tired. The L.G.B. desired to have placed before them a tangible &.heme to show what they really wanted. Personally he thought the Llanedy scheme would do ti lot of harm and it would cost the parish of Llangadock at least £ 3,000. At £ 150 and to keep up all the mains would mean at lea^t another ;voJC, and they could not get out of it under JE200 a year. The Clerk (Mr. Walter Lewis)—That would also mean, sir, that if they wanted to they could stop the supply? The Chairman—Mr. Peel can explain that. Mr. Peel—That is so. The Clerk-It has been decided before that we can get a supply cheaper and nearer here at a former parish meeting. The Ch"irmanBonle people say that they never put the Act into force. A parishioner asked a question and the reply was cnat if the Llanelly Rural District Council's scheme was tapped they would have to fib--e the fact that there was a clause in the agreement enabling them if they got short of water to cut off the supply from Llangadock for their own protection. Col. Lloyd Harries—That was the point I intended referring to. The Chairman—No doubt a lot of suggestions will be made to-night, and I hope we will arrive ut some- thing tangible. llie clerk will now read the letter from the Llandovery Rural District Council. The letter ran as follows:- I am directed by the above Council to inform your Council that the LocalI Government Board are pressing their requirements with regard to a water supply for Llangadock. and I have to ask you to be good enough to call a parish meeting and to let me know what you propose to do before the 29th inst. The letter was addressed to Lloyd, the ch -Vlr. Lloyd, the chairman. The Chairman Personally, I think it will be a terrible thing for the parish of Llangadock if we entertain such schemes as the Llanelly one. I elieve that there is plenty of pure water in the neighbourhood ot Llangadock to meet our re/juire- succeed-■ T& b lfc applause>- If thi* scheme succeeds I shall be very sorry myself for my fellow- ratepayers and I should like so far as lies in mv power, to he p them out of this difficulty (hear hoar and applause).

He said that before decidmtr upon any scheme of sinking new wells they ) should first make certain that they would be able to satisfy the sanitary officer under the Llandovery Rural District ouncil that they had a sufficient and pure supply. He mentioned that he had explained the position in respect to the water supply for Llan- sadwrn at a meeting at that place. He believed that Llangadock was one of the most healthy towns in the I nited Kingdom. He mentioned Cwmgenfa as a future source of supply if in the future it became necessary, of which an analysis had been taken. It furnished a supply of 20 gallons in the 24 hours per head for 500 inhabitants. K they had a water scheme they would have to borrow on the security of I the rates of the whole parish. In the result it was deicded that a committee be appointed to go into the .question to consist of me four local councillors, viz., Messrs. E. P. Lloyd, E. Harries. Thomas Davies and Morgans, Gwynfe; Mr. Peel. Mr. Joseph, Church House; Mr. Isaac, Roje and Crown; Mr. Rees Thomas and Mr. Walter James. The Chairman snid he would send the water of the dliferent wells to be analysed so that they would be certain what they were about. Col.

CARMARTHEN UNIONISTS ANNUAL MEETING. GOVERNMENT'S DANGEROUS WORK. The annual meeting of the Carmarthen Conserva- tive and Unionist. Association was held at the Assembly Rooms, Carmarthen, on Friday last, Mr. Dudley Williams-Drummond, Hafodneddyn, pre- siding. APPOINTMENTS. At the outlet of the meeting, on the motion of Councillor John Crossman, Mr Dudley Drummond was unanimously re-elected president of the Association, and Mr J. B. Arthur was appointed chairman to succeed Mr. Crossman. Mr. J. B. Arthur said he did not think there was ever an occasion when Conservatives should be more proud of their policy than to-day. Mr. C. E. Davies. Lloyds Bank. was re-elected treasurer, and Mr. Fred G. Humphreys secretary. Messrs. J. B. Arthur, J.P., Walter Lloyd, J.P., and Walter Spurrell. J.P.. were appointed representa- tives on the South Wales Provincial Division of the National Unionist Asosciation. ULSTER AND THE GOVERNMENT. Mr. H. Coulson Bond, the prospective Unionist candidate for the Carmarthen Boroughs, who re- ceived quite an ovation, then addressed the gather- ing. and said that ho knew he had a majority in Carmarthen—(applause—and that it was to Llan- elly they had to "look for the greatest change. They had a first-rate organisation in Llanelly, where, thev had no less than bvo hundred and eighty-five subscribers to the Association. The most valuable assistance he could count upon in Llanelly was among the working-men (applause). Dealing with the political situation, Mr. Bond stated that the feeling which the Government were stirrinsr up in the great industrial community of South Wales and other parts of the country was going- to do harm, and. perhaps, bring disaster to the captains and armies of industry. He had a very wide experience in the management of large bodies of men, and he had learnt one lesson of paramount importance to success, that efficiency, prosperity, and contentment were best attained by ,a proper consideration for men of every position by the encouragement of good feeling and good- will (cheers). The absence of a straightforward and honest and truthful polvy destroyed confi- dence. but th" Government were stirring up petty local jealousies and setting class against class. On that score they a Unionists had a heavy indictment against the present Government. He had a relative in the 16th Lpncers at the Curragh. and he (Mr. Bond) happened to know all that had happened there. All those happenings in Ulster, and the attempts of the Government to use under-hand means to coerce their political opponents by the use of the forces of the Crown, were all on a par with the wretched Marconi affair (applause). The truth had to be dragged out of the Government like teeth reluctant to come out. He did not believe there waa even a good minority in the country in favour of the Home Rule and Welsh Church Bills. Referring to the 1909 Budget, he said he did not now of 'iiivone who had benefitted under it except 4.600 officials. On the whole rich people did not grumble at being taxed for the sake of the poor, but they expected the money to go to the right place, and not to the creating of hordes of officials (applause). If the money spent on new offieials had gone to the improvement of the housing condi- tions of the people a great work might liwe been done. Why did not the Government give some- thing to encourage industry and agriculture? The Government tried to make conditions better by giving doles. People did not want charity. The conditions of the people must be made better by improving industry and agriculture so that good vragOB might be paid (applause). CHURCHMEN AND LIBRARY. Proposing a vote of thanks to Mr. Bond and the Chairman, Colonel Aslett, Bolahaul, referring to the Welsh Church Bill, said there wre certain institutions which were going to receive plunder from the Church. An appeal was now being made for funds towards the Welsh National Library, but it behoved wealthy Churchmen not to support that institution until the people who managed it agreed, like those who managed the Welsh National Museum, that they would not take any Church money (applause). Mr. Walter Spurrell seconded the vote of thanks, which was carried with acclamation

WELSH CHURCH BILL THIRD READING. The Welsh Church Bill passed through its final stage in the House of Commons under the Parlia- ment Act. The concluding debate was quietly con- ducted in a small House, though the interest of the publio in the question was seen in the orowdel state of the Strangers' Gallery. What members generally were interested in was the division. The third reading of the Bill was carried for the third time by a majority of 77. The debate was resumed by Mr. Ellia Griffith, the Under-Secretary of the Home Office. He said the reason why the four Welsh dioceses were not allowed to remain part of the Province of Canto- bury was because in such circumstances a Welsh Free Church would be governed and controlled by an En^lush Established Church. "ifrec, ohureh will only be a Parliamentary term," Mr. Ian Malcolm remarked; and Mr. Ellis Griffiths replied We want a Free Church in substance as well or, in name, and hence we object to the four dioceses remaining part of the Province of Canterbury." The Church would be allowed to work out its own salvation, on Welsh soil, untrammelled by State control or interference from outside. Onlv in that way could it hope to reconcile itself to Welsh sentiment. u •^1^erosting constitiutiofcial point was raised by Mr. Cave. Mr. Ellis Griffith had argued that it was useless to have a suggestion stage, as the tone of the debates clearly showed that agreement he tween th. ,idra was impossiH(, any case, the Lords would throw out the Bill Mr Cave. contend th.t th0 Lord*. witK™Ldi! the Bill «. se-ond time and going into Committee. could have agreed to suggestions sent to them bv the Commons. In that case the Bill rejected bv the Lords and sent to the King for the Roval Assent under the Parliament Act would have been the Bill with the suggestions. Mr. Swift MacNeill interrupted a criticism of the Irish members by Lord Hugh Cecil to say that I the Irish members supported the Bill because they were aware of the advantages of Disestablish- ing r -f^at may be>" r«Plied Lord S, £ ut lf there was any disturbance in on relal10ns them and the Government on another mattpr it is certain they would aaint the Bill." Mr. Lloyd George remonstrated against the mS f,lCqTtIy. r,,a^ in the debate that the Bill meant the disestablishment of religion. On the contrary, the Government had done more than any of its predecessors in the way of establishing re- ligion with the State by carrying out the great function of religious social reform. He also said that the pious founders had intended their en- dowments for the people of Wales, and the people of Wales were getting them back by the Bill. The last hour of the debate was divided between Ntr. F. E. Smith in an attack on the Bill and the Home Secretary in its defence. Mr. Smith dis- puted the allegation of Mr. Lloyd George that they v could not disestablish the Church without disen- dowing it. There were churches on the Continent disestablished but not disendowed. It would be honester for the promoters of the Bill openly to say to the Church:—"We want vour money and we t°vn"V,r.it:l,Ml:;imith also q»ot'*d a savir.g- Ml"; a policy with money 11 l\u ? Pd' ?mid loud Opposition cheers. that that was an outburst of modern Welsh spiritu- alism which should never be forgotten. Mr. McKenna replied that the Church held property intended for the people of Wales; and the Govern- ment felt bound to divert at least part of it back to the original beneficiaries. It was untrue to say that they were crippling or injuring the- Lhiirch by their scheme of disendowment.
FUNERAL REFORM. [To the Txlitor of the CARMARTHEN JOURNAL.] constantly hear complaints of delay Jit funerals, but 110 effort seems to .be made to reform or remove old customs. A funeral in this dis- trict was announced for 1.30 on Monday last. A large number of people assembled punctually, anti were kept waiting in an exposed farm-yard'until 2.40! Many of us had walked up a long steep hill, and perspired freely, so that a wait of an hour and ten minutes, in a drizzling rain was dangerous to health. When a funeral is announced, say for 1.30. let the officiating minister conduct a very brief •service at or before 1.15. the coffin being previously closed, and let tho procession start promptly at 1.30. A funeral is not the place for a long sermon or display of any kind, and everything should be done simply and with the greatest possible reverence. I trust these few remarks will help to rouse public opinion on this matter, and lead to a much-needed reform. Gwneler pobpeth yn weddaid ae. lnewn trdn. Yours. JOHN STEPHENS. Llandilo. Undertake..
