Double Wedding at Merthyr Vale. A unique event took place on Thursday last It the Trinity Presbyterian Church, Merthyr Vale, two weddings being solemnised at Ule lame time. The contracting parties wore 5Jr. Herbert Bertram Dobbs, second son of the (ate Mr. George Dobbs, Cardiff, engineer to the Rhjmney Railway Company, and Miss Ann ilames Myfanwy Rees, eldest daughter of the ■.to Mr. Evan Rees, Hong Kong Stores, and Thistlecroft, Aberfan; also Mr. Gomer Llew- ellyn Rees, youngest son of the lat6 Mr. Evan Rees, of Hong Kong Stores and Thistlecroft, Aberfan, to Miss Gertrude Annie Llewellyn, third daughter of Mr. Llewellyn, Brooklands, Troedyrhiw, under manager at the Castle Pi;s. It is interesting to note that one of the bride- groom's (Mr. G. L. Rees) also on the same day reached his majority Great interest was taken in the event, all the famiiics being well known and highly respected in the neighbourhood. A large number of friends assembled outside' the brides' homes early, endeavouring to ob- tain a view of the brides and their maids. The wedding parties were conveyed to the chapel by seven cabs, decorated for the occasion. Mr. Sam Dix, with Mr. Wilson, did the posting. The chapel was prettily decorated, the approach being carpeted, and a bower of flowers forming an arch over the gateway. Inside, a suitable motto was prominent in front of the pulpit ("Welcome to the brides") Miss Hannah Ed. wards, Merthyr. played the "Wedding March" on the organ as the parties entered and left the chapel. A very large congregation assem- bled to witness the ceremony. The brides wer,e handsomely attired. Miss Rees wore a dress of white silk and lace, also a bridal veil of silk, with a wreath of orange blossoms. Miss Rees, Bister of bride; wore a white princess gown, worked with silk flowers, a white picture hat (rimmed with a wreath of pink roses. The Misses Dolly and Elsie Andrews (cousins of the bride) wore silk embroidered dresses, with wreaths of roses in hair, and carried baskets of beautiful flowers. The bride carried a bou- quet of lilies, roses, and tulips. Miss Llewellyn wore a white silk Empire gown, trimmed with Maltese lace and insertion, ornamented with tabs of pink silk roses, also a bridal veil and a wreath of orange blossoms. Miss Evelyn Llew- ellyn (sister of bride) wore a white Empire silk gown, with white picture hat trimmed with tea roses. Miss Gwen Llewellyn wore a white hand-made embroidered dress, and wore a wreath of roses in her hair. The Rev. W Andrews (pastor) conducted the marriage ceramony of the first pair, viz., Mr. H. B. Dobbs to Miss A. J. M. Rees. The bride was given away by her grandfather, Mr. W. Andrews, of Cefn Mawr, Newtown, Mon., who, by the way, is 84 years of age, and is en- joying good health. The bridegroom was at- tended by Mr. Archie Parry, Quakers' Yard. The Rev J. M. Davies, Aberfan, assisted by the Rev. Redmond, Llanbradacb, conducted the marriage service of Mr. G. L. Rees and Miss G. A. Llewellyn. The bride in this case was given away by her father, while the bride- groom was attended by Mr. T. Edmund Rees, architect, Gernant, The Walk, Merthyr. After the service, the party were entertained to the wedding breakfast at the Central Hotel, Merthyr, about 50 guests being present. The tables were most artistically laid out, and the decorations were much admired, and the Host. (Mr. Marshall) is to be congratulated upon the arrangements. The Rev. W. Andrews offered prayer, and the party afterwards did ample justice to the good thmgs provided. The toast list which was gone through included "The health of Brides and Bridegrooms," "The families," "The clergy," "The guests," etc. The party were photographed in the breakfast room by Mr. Owen, the Arcade, Merthyr. After the breakfast the wedding party proceeded to Thistlecroft, Aberfan, where a home reception was held. Mr. Gomer Llewellyn Rees, with his wife, left for Sketrv to spend the honey- moon amid the best wishes of all. The travel- ling costume of the bride was biscuit cloth. Both parties received a large number of pres- ents. The following is a list of presents received by Mr. and Mrs. Rees:—Bridegroom to bride, srold bajigle; bride to bridegroom, gold ring; Mr. and Mrs. Llewellyn (parents of bride), cheque and silver kettle with stand; Misses Evelyn and Elsie Llewellyn (sisters of bride), silver butter dish; Mrs. Rees (bridegroom's mother), cheque and silver tea and coffee ser- vice, Mr. and Mrs. H.

ELECTRICITY v. GAS. j (Contributed.) j With appetites still unsatisfied on the above question, the numerous readers of the "Ex- press" are, no doubt, still looking forward to i more comparisons of a practical character. Some of these are enumerated below :— i (1) The Osram lamp will burn singly on any voltage from 2 to 260. The fact of the lamp; being used on alternating current does not make any difference to their life. Recently, at one of the South Wales Electrical Distribution Company's substations at Pontypridd, four (I.ram lamps were tested, and they were all f-'oiug after 2,500 hours burning. The bulbs had not blackened at all, and the light was as good as when the lamps were first put on test. This test was severe as the current was alter- nating at a low frequency, also during the day- time largo variations in voltage take place, due to colliery motors stopping and starting in the immediate neighbourhood. This should dispel fallacy (1) in last week's issue. Again, on the street lighting in Canterbury, the average life has worked out at over 2,600 hours. At Bir- mingham, Osram lamps are being used with great success on alternating current with a fre- quency of 25 periods, which is more exacting than the usual frequency of 60 or more. (2) The cost of the lamps generally in use for hou'e lighting and shops varies from 2s. 6d. to 5s. 9d., the 32-c.p. lamps being 3s. 6d. each; (3) A comparison of the cost of the different systems, Osram lamps and Gas, is borne out by testimonials from different people who have tried the two systems. During 1907, a com- petitive trial, lasting over 13 days, took place at the Liberal Club, Windsor. The electric lighting equipment consisted of Osram lamps, while the Gas authorities used' high pressure burners with incandescent mantles. At the end of the 13 days, the cost fqr Gas was £1 8s. 3d., while the Electricity bill was only 16s. 2d. The consequence was that the general effect of the more distributed light obtained by the Osram lamps was so much appreciated, that the whole of the Club premises were wired for electric light. Messrs. Ensolls (Shirt Tailors, 285-7, New Cross-road, S.E.) state that in 1906 they were using 28 8 c.p. old style incandescent lamp with gas lamps outside, inside shops and all over the house. This last quarter they had 9 100-c.p. Osrams put outride, 4 50c.p. and 17 35-c-P. Osrains in the business, only burning gas in the house, viz.: Two gas fires, one cook- ing stove, and lighting all over the house. They shall have pleasure in recommending others to follow their example. 1906-G-as.

Id.; total saving on one quarter, JB7 2s. 2d. (4) Regarding the healthiness of electric light over ?as there is no question a/5 to electric light being foremost, despite assertions to the contrary. If gas is healthy, why is it that at the Gas Exhibition held at Olympia, fa.intnress and sickness were common amongst, the stall attendants and spectators, so much so that four large electric fans were fixed to remove the vitiated atmosphere. A tab!? compiled by Sir W. H. Preece shews that the decrease in ab- sentees at the GeneraJ Post Office, London, through ill-health was onough to pay for the total co-rt of lighting. When gas was used as an illuminant. the average number of days sick absence per officer employed was from 10.19 to 13.56, whereas with electric light it was only 7.83 to 9.22 days- Messrs. Suttons. seed mer- chants, Reading, also state that the adoption of the electric light has resulted in greater im- munity from illness amongst their employees in the busy season, and a reduction of at least 10 degrees in the temperature of several of the departments. Professor Marchant, of the Liverpool University, in a course of lecture.s on illumination, gave some figures shewing the vitiation wh:ch takes place in an ordinary room, and gave the following figures relating to gas: —Coal Gas Batswing burners: Burns per hour cubic feet, 5.5; candle power, 16; cubic feet, oxygen burned. 4.5; vitiation in number of adult persons, 5. Agand burners: Burns per hour, cubic feet, 4.8; candle power, 16; cubic feet, oxygen burned, 5.8; vitiiation in number of adult persons, 4.3. Regenerative burners: Burns per hour, cubic feet. 3.2; candle power, 32; cubic feet, oxygen burnsd, 3.6; vitiation in number of adult persons. 2.8. Welsbach burn ers: Burns per hour, cubic feet, 3.5; candle power, 50 (initial); cubic f-jet, oxygen burned. 4.1; vitiation in number of adult persons, 3. Dr. Marchant pointed out that the Welsbach mantle tested was a good one, but even then the candle power after 300 hours' burning was only 30 c.p. W,ith electric light, of coursa, no oxygen was consumed. The late Dr. Letheby, in his report on the coal gas supplied to the City of London, gives instances of the destruc- tive nature of the fumes which arise from gas burners, and the following quotation is worthy of notice: "Enormous damage has been done to the binding of books in the libraries of the Athenteum Club, the London Institution, and the Royal College of Surgeons." In the first- named, wherever the books had been exposed to the atmosphere containing the vapours of burnt, gas, they were as rotten as tinder; indeed, it often happened that the covers gave way in attempting to remove a book from it-? place on the shelf. If the vapours of burnt gas will do so much harm to inanimate objects, what will they do ie. the delicate lung tissue of the person genera-ily breathing them? (5) Respecting the up-keep of Osram lamps and rras mantles in a certain large city, 12 school- lighted with gas at 2s. 2d. per '1.000 I cubic feet, the total gas bill was £ 384 8s., and the totar renewals and cleaning bill (done by the Gas Company at a cheap rate through fear of losing the lighting) was £ 190 lis. 2d., or about 5Q per cent. of the gas bill. Moreover, as this allowance was found to be inadequate, the cleaning and renewing periods have been increased in number by 33 per cent. Tak».nfr the assumed figures from last week's "Express" for the up-keep of Osram lamps, we find that it only comes to 43.6 per cent. This, of course. woulfÍ be reduced to 38.1 per cent. by taking the lamps at their proper price of 39. 6d. Then illowing for their life being extended to. 1.500 hour-5, which is more than exceeded in practise, [his percentage up keep will still further be re- rluced to 15.4. The nbove figures show that Osram lamps ran rnor3 than hold their own both in coit of up-keep and economy of cur rent,
REVIEWS. We have received from "Black and White" a complete copy of their Royal Academy and New Gallery pictures for 1909. This is a most artistic production, and is well worth the price charged for it—one shilling. There are con- siderably over a hundred reproductions of pic- tures in various tints, and interesting notes on some of the exhibits. "Test-Match Cricket," which will be publish- ed on Friday, May 14th, presents a concise his- tory of Anglo-Australian cricket. Australia's achievements in England and England's deeds in Australia are set forth in tabies which show at a glance the progress of the great contests. In addition there is a chart of all the matches, which is something new in cricket literature. The matches are numbered and the figures ar-* rariged in such a way that the chart is sure to be regarded and preserved as an authoritative record. "Test-match Cricket" has been pre- pared by the Editor of '"Leng's Cricket Book," which is at once a guarantee of care and ac- curacy. The book is published at the price of One Penny. The book of words for the National Pageant of Wales, which is to be held at Cardiff from July 26th to August 7th, has just been pub- lished. It has been compiled by George Proc- tor Hawtrev, Master of the Pageant, and Owen Vaughan (Owen Rhoscomyl), historian. It gives a list of the officers and members of the exe- cutive committee, and there are characteristic introductions by the Master and Historian. They point out that this is a national, not a local pageant; not a pageant of Cardiff, but a pageant of Wales. It deals with a history which is very little known, although the ma- terials for it exist in masses.' Then there is a full programme with the names of the Welsh airs which the chorus will sing. These will all be sung in English, except the Welsh National Anthem. At the end there are notes on the leading Welsh characters who will be portrayed in the pageant. The price of the book, which has been published by the "Western Mail" Company, is sixpence. "The Proverbs of Wales."—By T. R. Rob- erts. (Francis Griffiths, 34, Maiden Lane, Strand. London, W.C. 1/6.) Mr. Roberts (Asaph). who is also the author of "A Dictionary of Eminent Welshmen" and other works, is to be complimented on his lat- est production. Not only has he succeeded in bringing together a splendid collection of Welsh, proverbs, but the English translations are given as well. The volume runs to over ninety pages: and as there are about a dozen proverbs on each page it will be seen that the total exceeds a thousand. Many of them, of course, are well known, but others are rare; they are jewels, nevertheless. In a short but interesting intro- duction, the author refers to previous collec- tions of proverbs. He also points out promin- ent features of Welsh proverb?. In regard to their brevity, he shows that they will compare favourably with those of other nations. He also emphasises the fact that the proverbs are healthv in tone, and in clear and forcible language condemn that which is evil and com- mend that which is good. The book should command a ready sale among those who would become famiiiar with the wk-o sayings of the Cymry of old; while those who possess little knowledge of Welsh will find the collection very useful. "Printers Pic," 1909. Edited by W. H. Spot.tiswoode and Arthur Croxton. Price, one shilling.. The fact that the Prince of Wales is person- ally showing his interest in printing agd its al- lied arts this year by graciously accepting the Presidency of the Printers' Pension Corpora- tion Festival, makes the issue of "Printers' Pio, 1909," of exceptional value and importance. This over-welcome annual, which is edited by Mr. W. Hugh Spottiswoode, assisted by Mr. Arthur Croxton, has already been of remark- able service to the cause of charity, and it seems possible that the Prince of Wales's sub- scription list will this year mark a record. Other charities which benefit are the Booksellers' Pro- vident Institution, the Newsvendors' Benevo- lent and Provident Institution, the Newspaper Press Fund, and the Artists' General Benevo- lent Institution. Among the authors whose con- tributions appear are:—The Duke of Argyll, K.T., G. B. Burgin, Gerald CampbeVJ, Egerton Castle, Lieut.-Col- Newnham-Davis, Austin Dobson, Athold Forbes, H.

On t.he very first page, the reader learns that Mr. Opp has a talent for mi^P? things. "I never seen him," says Jirnwy Fall3ws' another cleverly drawn character, "that ho '*• j\16t missed get-tin' a thousand dollar job- or ln" veniin' a patent, or hurt- wnen pa took out a' accident policy.

Not content- with that, ho takes a Eagle." Not content- with that, ho takes a prominent part in the formation of a company, with the obejct of sinking oil wells. He calls into existence a town band, and becomes lead- ing cornet player. Then be is also instrumental in getting formed several committcs for the carrying out of public improvements. Last of all, he fails an love with a Mis- Gusty, one of the most popular girls in the village. But. alas, all his schemes come to naught. He has to dispose of the paper to his rival for Miss Gusty's hand, HiiLard Winton, who eventually marries her. Dis appointment meets Mr. Opp at every turn, but he rarely gives way to despondency. Having sold the "Opp Eagle," he resigns his many other important positions, and lie ir, honoured with a banquet in recognition of his pubhc ser- viocs. In the middle of his speech, in reply to the addresses eulogising him, ho is interrupted by a negro nurse who informs him that his half crazy sister has broken her doll's head, and as nothing would pacify her, they were compelled to fetch Air. Opp from the banquet. He leaves the room and returns home whistling, and so the book closes. Notwithstanding his many weaknesses, Mr. Oppis an attractive character, and dout>i.]»;s truo to life. All the other char- acters are finely portrayed. It is a delightful story; in fact, one of the best we have read for a long time.

CYFARTHFA CASTLE. DRAFT CONVEYANCE APPROVED. PROPOSED WEEK-DAY AND SUNDAY CONCERTS. A meeting of the Parks and Cemeteries Com- mittee of the Merthyr Corporation was held on Wednesday afternoon, Coun. D. Jones presid ing. A sub-committee reported that at present the Brecon-road Hospital grounds were not suitable for a recreation ground for children. They re- commended that steps be takent9 acquire the freehold of the site.—This was agreed to.— Coun. Pedler asked the reason why the ground was not suitable for recreation grounds.—Mr. Biddle (the deputy town clerk) said the walls were in a dilapidated condition. The hospital was now used as a soup kitchen, and the sub- committee thought if children got into .the grounds, furtfiar damage would bo done. Len- der the lease, the Council had to keep the building in repair, and if they acquired the freehold, the hospital coidd be pulled down, and the grounds laid out. A sub-committee recommended that £2 worth of flower se^.d-s be purchased for Thomastown Recreation Ground, and it was stated that ten- ders had been asked for.—Coun. Dan Thomas asked if it was truo that the order had been given to a firm outside the Borough. — The Deputy Town Clerk said that tenders were ask- ed for from local as Well as outside florists.— The report was adopted. A letter was read from the Grapho-Jackson Concert Party, Barnsley. asking whether the Committee would allow them to have a plot of land at Cyrarthfa Park, near the pond, during the summer months, to give al fresco con- certs. Several inland towns had fiven permis- sion for similar concerts. They would pay the Corporation either 10 per cent. of the total takings, or £60 for the season, and they would charge one penny each or twopence for chairs. —The letter was referred to tho Parks Sub- committee. Deputy Town Clerk said tho Band Com- mittee had asked him to mention the matter of allowing the Cyfarthfa Municipal Band to give concerts at the Cyfarthfa and other parks on Sunday nights during the summer, after the churches had closed. — Coun. Dan Thomas moved that permission b9 given. At night, he said, the streets were considerable overcrowd- ed, some disgraceful scenes were witnessed, and people would be able to clear out of the town and enjoy the fresh air and the music.—Aid. Enoch Morrell seconded the resolution, which was carried.—Coun. J. Davies (Cyfarthfa) said he was not in favour of concerts on Sunday nights.—Coun. Thomas Williams: It is better than a prize fight. The Deputy Town Clerk reported that the draft conveyance for the purchase of Cyfarthfa Castle had been approved by Mr. Crawshay's solicitors, and the whole matter would be com- plot-ed by the end of next week. Tenders were- received for painting work at Cefn. Aberfan, and Treharris Cemeteries as follow:—Mr. E. J. Staples, Cardiff, total, £49 (£15 for Cefn); Mr. Shattock, Aberfan, J68 10s. for Aberfan and JE5 for Treharris; Mr. Francis, Danyparc,' Merthyr-Cefn £24 7s. bd., Aberfan £9 1(K, Treharris jB6 12s., total £4Q, 9s. 6d.; W. H. Williams, Brecon-road—Cefn £21. Aber- fan £14 10s., Treharris £16, total £51; Messrs. Canton, Green, and Prosser, Dowlais, total £66. —It was agreed to give the work at Aberfan and Treharris to Mr. Shattock.—The Commit- tee divided as to Cefn Cemetery, and the ten- der of Mr. Williams was accepted. The Chairman said ho had been informed that the houses of the back of the Merthyr Vale Library had been abandoned, and he thought the Town Clerk should negotiate with the owners and try and get the land as a recre- ation ground .—On the motion ci Coun. D. J. Lewis, seconded by Coun. R. P. Rees, this was agreed to.
More than Skin Deep. His Skin Disease originated in Impure Blood. r A reason for the many cures by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The record of Mr. G. R. King, of 29, Wellington Road, Holloway, London, N., proves that to rely upon outward applications for the cure of a serious skin disorder means merely trifling with a disease that can only be cured by treating the impure blood.
"A terrible skin disease tortured me day and night; one doctor told me my blood was in a frightful state" were the words of Mr. King to a London jour. nalist recently. He continued :— I had felt very ill for a long time, being subject to sudden faints. One day I fell in the street and injured my face. It was a sure proof that my blood was in a bad state when the wound refused to heal, and before long I developed that terrible skin disease, Psoriasis. I applied ointments and bathed the afflicted partsegularly, but the trouble spread like fire, and the sensation was like a continual smarting scorch. The eruption appeared as tiny pimples that developed white caps of irritating scales; these broke out into ugly sores, three inches wide. A doctor did his best to cure me, but the terrible rash spread quickly and covered my legs, loins and back. My shoulders and arms were a mass of sores. The terrible itching was unbearable and I felt as though I must tear my flesh away. At length the eruption appeared all over my hands, and at this stage my sufferings almost drove me mad. Warmth aggravated my tortures, and I could not sleep because of the agony of the bedclothes rubbing my raw flesh. The horror of that time is indescribable. I was under the treatment of a specialist for five months, weak, pale and thin all the time, and unable to take a meal with any zest. However, I happened to read of cases of skin disorders being cured by Dr. Williams' Pipk Pills for Palo People; so I sent for a supply of these pills at once. I was, at this time, a shadow of my former self; frail and pale as death. Nevertheless, two boxes of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills made a great difference, and, my disorder did not annoy me so intensely. I was, of course, far from being well, but I decided to persevere with the pills. After a few weeks' steady treatment I was able to sleep restfully at nights. A few more boxes of the pills gave me a splendid appetite, and gradually the itching left my skin. Then the sores died away, leaving a clear, new skin underneath. I was soon quite well.
"I have enjoyed grand I health since my cure by I Dr. Williams9 Fink Pills, and my skin is quite clear and free from disease." Victims of Impure, Weak Blood, which betrays ikself in various maladies of the Skin, Nerves, and Muscles, should remember that as the trouble is seated in the blood, the cure can j only be effected by renewing the blood. Because ] they make New Red Blood Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have cured Disorders of the Skin, Anemia, ] Indigestion, St. Vitus' Dance, Rheumatism, After-Effects of Influenza, Lumbago, Sciatica, j Pains in the Back, Neuralgia, Nervous Disorders f and Paralysis; also the special ailments of I women.

ANNUAL MEETINGS.—The special services of Moriah Welsh Baptist Church were opened on Saturday evening, and were largely attended and most successful. The officiating ministers were the Rev. T. Idwal Jones, Drefach, Car- marthenshire, and the Rev. R.. Griffiths, Beth- abar.1. (Pern.), and they preached with great earnestness and power, their efforts being much I appreciated. At the afternoon service on Sun. day, Mr. Tom Phillips, the popular tenor, was I heard to advantage in a sacred solo, which he rendered admirably. LECTTRii; OK "TANYMARIAN."—A large audi- ence gathered at Penywern Welsh Congrega- tional Chapel, on Thursday evening, to hear a lecture by the esteemed pastor of Ebenezer, Cardiff—the Rev. II. M. Hughes—on the above subject. The alternate humour and pathos which characterised the rev. lecturer's discrip- tions kept the audience intensely interested throughout. The proceedings were varied by songs illustrative of the genius of the subject of the lecture, viz.: "Hen Gadair Freichiau Ardderchog fy Mam" and "Peidiwch gofyn i mi ganu," by Mr. Tom James, Lower-row, Penywern, and Mr. T. P. Jones, Gwladys- street, Caeracca. A vote of hearty thaks, pro- posed by Mr. Thos. Thomas, and seconded by Mr. Hy. Williams, was accorded the lecturer, who, in acknowledging, expressed his keen ap- preciation of the way in which the proceedings had been conducted, and moved the thanks of the meeting to the chairman (the Rev. J. H. Hughe.1?, pastor of the church). The proceeds are to be devoted to the support of Mr. Row- land Pritchard, one of the young men of the church who is now preparing for the minis. try at Bala Bangor College. He bracketed with another at the head of the list at the examina- tiou for entrance, and about the same time passed tho Welsh matriculation examination. These achievements reflect great credit upon the young man's perseverance and application in view of tho disadvantages under which he laboured, having as the elder of a large family, to work as a collier up to within a short time of his entering college.
*>— Dowlais Constable's Smart Capture: The ke*n perspicacity of a member of the Dowlais Division of the Borough Police Force, was responsible for a clever capture this week. While on duty about 7 o'clock on Monday even- ing, P.C. Stubbs (61) observed a. man wheeling a practically new bicycle up High-street. Cer- tain appcarance3 prompted the constable to stop the man, who, when questioned as to the machine, 6aid it was second-hand, and he had bought it for £5. His replies to other inquiries wore very .unsatisfactory, so the man was asked to accompany P.C. Stubbs to tho Police Station. There also he failed to give a satisfactory ac- count of the manner in which he obtained pos- session of the bicycle, but gave his name and occupation as that of William Williams, sinker, and having no fixed abode. P.S. Jones (19) thereupon communicated with Chief Constable Wilson at Merthyr, who immediately instituted inquiries, and found that the theft, between 1 and 2 p.m. that day from outside a publ-c house at Neath, of a bicycle, corresponding in every particular to that in the possession of Williams, had been reported to Cardiff, Newport, Swan- sea, etc.. but not to the Marthyr police. The man Williams was then charged upon suspicion of having stolen the machine, and detained in custody. On Tuesday morning, Williams con- fessed to having committed the theft, and was met at Merthyr by Sergt. John Davies, Neath, whither he wa$ conveyed by the 9.50 o'clock train, and later in the day was remanded on I the charge of stealing the bicycle, which is the property of Joseph Campbell, Briton Ferry. The alertness displayed by P.C. Stubbs in the I circumstances is deserving of the highest com- mendation, and subsequent events proved that his promptitude in acting as he did was thor- oughly warranted. f
Unity Amongst Railwaymen. ¡ MR. WALTER HUDSON, M.P., AT t DOWLAIS. j Under the auspices of the Dowlais Branch t of the Amalgamated Society of Railway Ser- t vants, an "open" meeting was held on Sunday afternoon at the Parish Hall, Garden-street, to hear an address by Mr. Walter Hudson, M.P., Newcastle-on-Tyne. There was a good attendc anoe, including several visitors from Merthyr, who were welcomed by Mr. R. H. Parker (chairman of the local branch) in his introduc- tory address. He further expressed the hope that the railway servants would speedily close up their ranks, so that the day might hasten when they could approach their employees and declare they would not work with non union- ists, as the South Wales miners were able to do through their Federation to-day. Mr. Walter Hudson, who was cordially re- ceived, took for his subject, "Complete Organiz- ation in One Union." He said the question was the most important one that railwaymen had to face at the present time; and until they were properly united under one banner, they oould not rightly estimate their full power and position. He feared that for many years, rail- way servants, both inside and outside of any organization, had been somewhat apathetic in their attitude, and self-composed; and the great changes introduced on the trunk lines must have come as a surprise to a large majority, who failed to realize the great revolutionary work that was going on. The railway compan- ies themselves were seeking Parliamentary powers whereby they might form themselves in- to large combines, ^bigger and larger than any- thing contemplated before in the United King- dom, or to obtain working agreements and un- dertakings which amounted to little less than creating huge monopolies. Combinations of this character would be detrimental not only to the trade of the country, but to the large body of workmen employed on tha railways; and he, with other-?, was fighting the-question in the House of Commons, in the interests of the men as a whole, and not simply for the few,, What were the railway workers themselves go- ing to do to meet the situation? One thing that forced itself upon him, especially when he got away from the North, where they were fairly well organized, was the fact that the men of the different grades, ranks, and departments should be united together in one society. As matters stood at present, with nvalry existing simply for the sake of rivalry, they could not pretend to offer a united front to the enemy, and the impediment should be broken down. It was absolutely essential, in order to accom- plish their purpose, that they should be com- bined in one organization, for, he contended, the existence of several unions amongst railway- men was detrimental to their best interests. Membership in the organization—the A.S.R.S. —was the railwaymen's only solution for indus- trial advancement. A resolution to that effect was submitted to the meeting, and carried.
Funeral of the Late Mr. Enoch I Williams, Dowlais. Many tributes of respect to the memory of the late Mr. Enoch Williams, builder and con- tractor, Wyndham-street, whose demise, under such distressing circumstances, was recorded last week, were paid on Saturday at the funeral ceremony.

Several wreaths and other floral tokens were received from sorrowing :riends, and the bereaved widow and family lave been deeply moved by the very numerous sxpressions of sympathy which have reached hem in various ways in their sad trial.
