RHONDDA JOTTINGS. (BY BAMBLER.) The election excitement is at a high pitch just now. On Friday an influential meeting was held in favour of Mr Edwin W. Lewis' candidature, at the Perfcre Hotel. The large room was over- crowded with inflnestial workmen and tradesmen. Air Lewis' address to his electors waa read by the chairman (the Rev. T. H. Williams, home Mission- ary), and received amidst grout cheering. The vnrkus committees submitted tbeii reports, and all were considered satisfacto-y. Mr Lewis has in- variably opened his heart to meet the wants of the poor. and he has many times assisted families t when in nted of the necessaries of life. His kind actions are highly spoken of by all who have ex- perienced them. The same gentleman has at all times given his help in a pecuniary way towards fostering every good oause oinnected with the various chapels. Mr Lewis does not sonnno him- pelf to one denomination, but he supports all that fire in need of his assistance. V Another matter having a wide scope is wha$I have allnded to in a previous letter, namely, bis experience as a surveyor. Should the sewerage sobetre receive approbation, it will cost some- where about £200,000. Surely on such a vital question, a gentleman of his experience and know- c ledge could tender valuable aid, All voters should study this item as one of great importance. If Mr Lewis success in securing the seat, we are of opinion he will exercise bis jndrmenti with care and effect. Hence we should confer upon him the honour of electing him !o the N,). 2 ward of Ystradyfodwg parish as our representative. We feel sanguine of success, and with the same con- fidence we are sure we shall never have calise to repent our choice. Palm Sunday is a day which ia looked forward to in the present age with marked interest* During the week many thousands have visited the various buri-I places. The graves of the loved ones who departed this life bad been adorned with eostly wreathe as a tribute of respect to their memory. On previous years the wreaths proved inviting, but this year it tnrsed cut otherwise. During Saturday night soow fell heavily, thus the anticipations of many were marred- I do not wish to interfere with the feelings of bereaved relatives, but I am aDxicus to express my personal opinion on this matter. I shoald like another day allotted for such purpose. It in true that the day is christened Palm Sunday, in the vernacular*. ,e Dydd Sul y blodan," but notwithstanding this we are not to. understand that « this day we fiad flowers in fall bloom. The Sabbath bas been or- dained as a holy day. benoe, Vefere we can fulftl the commandment, we must abstain from anything- that tends to mar this object. The attendance at oar obapels on Palm Sunday is meagre, and the reason is obvious. This year it was less felt, as the weat ber was very unprrpitious. I quite agree with commemorating the memory of the dead, bat I would rather not do so on the IAerWeT day. We are asked to worship Him, and Hint a\oa.. ea this particular day. V Trade as been brisk in this valley for .rou.. Montbs, and in eonaeqaeoo* asaay a home has been a pleasant one. Respectable people can obtain: employment, and their services are regularlr re- gularly required. I hear that the Messrs Otty Brothers, Cardiff, will ere toeg work the Ne. 2 Seam at Gelli. Operations hav been commenced and several hands have been engaged to carry out the work. No lees than forty coke ovens are about being started. This will afford employment to am additional number of haads. The newa jfcae been received in the neighboarhood of Tstsadl Shcndda. Since the level has been stopped, several families have left the district, many of wbem spent a large portion cf their career in the reighbonrbood. The other o,,Ilio-r,es in the district are working regularly, and Kile affords qpneral satisfaction. %• The Fnnday Closing Act Is tee eften violated 1st this valley. Persons of rsepeetoble appearanee are summoned for infringing tbe law. To say the least is if disgracefal fcir people to prao ioe sueh a. low habit aa to go from heme on Sunday with the sole object of obtaining driak.
