AMMANFORD. Mr. D. Harries, Duffryn Stores, secured another prize last week at Llangadock. The I schools in the district opened on Monday last, after the usual summer vacation. The .headmasters were pleased with the attendances, despite a very large percentage of sickness, which is now prevalent amongst the younger folk. Mr. Jack Rainford, 59, Wind Street, Am- manford, has been appointed secretary to the Trades an3 Labour Council in succession to Mr. Jim Griffiths, who is leaving the district, to take up a two-years course at the Central Labour College, London. The members of the Ammanford Church's Mothers' Union had an outing on Wednesday last, when Dynevor Castle was visited. The party was conveyed thither by motor chara- banc. Despite the inclemency of the weather, quite an enjoyable time was spent. The Rev. D. E. Thomas and Mrs. Thomas left Ammanford for the Scilly Islands on Wednesday morning. A few friends had ¡JA.t1.cJ. whether at rtle Station to bid farewell. Mr. Thomas was the minister at the Wesleyan Church, Ammanford, for about 4 years. Mr. F. W. Jarmyn, on his retirement from the headmastership of the Gaxnsw llt Council School, after 17i years service, was made the recipient of an easy chair and pipe, and of a walking stick, by the scholars. Mr. Darid Williams, Voelallt, presided over the presentation meeting. The members of the Wesleyan Church Sunday School held their outing on Wednes- day. Both adults and children left Amman- ford by an early train for Swansea Bay, and a long day was spent by the "briny." The kiddies, as usual, did justice to the good things provided, and thanks to the elders of the church, an enjoyable time was spent. On Friday evening last a public meeting was held on the Square, Ammanford, under the auspices of the Workers' Forum. Mr. Jim Griffiths, secretary to the Trades and Labour Council. The chief speaker was Mr. Griffiths, the well-known socialist schoolmaster, Llanelly. The proceedings were of an orderly character, and every attention was given to the addresses delivered. A movement is on foot to publicly acknow- ledge the valuable service rendered by Mr. George 1. Thomas, the well-known Bettws' musician. During the war he has promoted personally several charitable entertainments, the proceeds of which have been handed over to deserving causes in the locality. He also has given his services gratis at concerts, etc. organized, in many instances, for the well- being of servicemen and theiir dependants. His musical talent has long ago been compli- mented upon, and for several years has been the conductor of the I Bettws Orchestra. At Capel Newydd, on Sunday last, it was de- cided to constitute a committee of working members from the respective denominations in the district, and a meeting has been convened, to be held on Tuesday evening next. Mr. Willie Jones, journalist, Bcttws, has been appointed secretary pro tem. Mr. Thomas leaves shortly for Aberystwyth.
GOLDEN GROVE. The wedding took place at Golden Grove Church, on Monday last, of Mr. Fred Lingwood, of Surrey, and Miss Margaret May Jones, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Jones, of North Lodge, Golden Grove. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. E. D. Aldred Williams, vicar. The bride was very becomingly attired in white silk, and was attended by Miss Lingwood (ipister of the bridegroom) 8' bridesmaid, and was given away by her father. The duties of best man were performed by Mr. John Jones (brother of the bride). After the ceremony, the happy couple motored to Swansea, where the honeymoon x being spent. There was a fine IdectiOll of wedding present*.
LLANDILO. I LLAND!LO. ￼ The Rev. D. Corris Davies, pastor of the Wesleyan Chapel (St. Paul's), who has been stationed in the town for the last five years, has been made the recipient of presentations, including a beautifully illuminated address, on the occasion of his leaving to take up a pastorate at Pontypridd. Under normal con- ditions, in accordance with the rules of tl denomination, the rev. gentleman would have left two years ago if the war had not, inter- vened. At the Ffairfach Auction Mart held this week, 54 -fat cattle and 301 fat sheep and lambs were graded and disposed of at con- trolled prices; 108 store ewes and lambs were sold at prices ranging from 30s. to 45s. apiece; 25 calves realised from 30s. to S.7 lIs. There were 75 storers (pigs), and these fetched from 24s. to £5 4s. The graders were Messrs. James Hobbs and Jonathan Jones. The auctioneers were Messrs. J. Howell Thomas and Son, Carmarthen. Great dissatisfaction is expressed at the action of the Llanelly Town Council in en- gaging an artist from Cardiff to paint the por- trait of the town's first Mayor, the late Si. Stafford Howard, when a gifted and accom- pl,h.ed -LJ -f the lyruslr could have been found within the confines of the county. We refer to MT. Carey Morris, of Llandilo, who enjoys a wide and just reputation in this class of work. Cognisance should also be taken of the fact that Mr. Morris as a lieutenant served for eight months in the trenches in France, whence he was invalided a victim of Hun poison gas, whilst others were reaping the benefit of highly paid professional work at home.
LLANDOVERY. I The-death has occurred in, his eleventh year of Master David Rhys Roderick, son of Mr. and Mrs. Rhys Roderick, Water Street, Llan- dovery, after a painful illness. Much sym- pathy is expressed with the family.

LLANDILO REVISION COURT. I Mr. J. W. Nicholas, registration officer for the County of Carmarthen, sat at the Shire Hall, Llandilo, on Monday last, and revised the lists of voters for the Northern portion of the County (Carmarthen Division). Claims and objections were considered. Mr. T. F. James, Unionist agent for the district, repre- sented the Unionist Party, whilst the Liberals were unrepresented. Mr. T. F. James asked the Registration I Officer what would his decision be in the case of a' young man recently demobilised from the Army or Navy, and who was still under the age of 21 years. Mr. Nicholas replied that he would cer- tainly allow the vote.
Ammanford Police Court Monday, before. Messrs Henry Herbert (in the chair), J. Llewelyn, Fairwater, and Arthur Williams, Glanamman. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY. D. J. Thomas, Sunny Hill, Gate Road, Penygroes, was charged by P.C. W. A. Jones with being drunk and disorderly in the village on the 18th of last month. Fined 12/ NON-PAYMENT OF INCOME TAX. ohn Jones, Collector of Taxes, Llanedy, summoned Evan Vaughan for the non-payment of income tax, amounting to 15/9, due in respect of two quarters. An order for pay- ment was made. A 12/- JUMP. P.C. Griffiths charged Edwin Evans with being drunk and disorderly on the Square, Ammanford. The Officer deposed to bAg on duty on the Squarfe, Ammanford, at 10.15 p.m., on the 18th of last month, when he saw defendant with a number of other men. He was drunk, shouting, and swearing. Just at the time a motor car came around the comer. Defendant sprang on to the hood. His friends afterwards went after him. The officer intervened and urged defendant to go home. He became very abusive. P.S. Britton came on the scene, and the defendant cleared away. Fined 12/ ALLEGED ASSAULT. Frank Powell, The Rest, Ammaniord, sum- moned Daniel Williams, a contractor, at Glan- amman, for assault. Mr. T. M. Evans, defended. The complainant stated that on the night of the 11th August he visited defendant' s house as he was accustomed to. He knocked at the door and defendant answered. Upon being asked to give him h s money, defendant struck him a blow, which rendered him (witness) more or less insensible. It was 10.30 p.m. when the incident happened. He was not under the influence of drink. His witness was not present at the moment, and he asked that the case be adjourned until he arrived. The bench acceded to the request. The hearing was resumed, and defendant said that the plaintiff had been working for him off and on for the past 4 or 5 years. He had given him a contract to whitewash 18 outhouses. Com- plainant had done about 6 of them, and these not properly. On the evening of the alleged offence, camplainant came to the house cursing and swearing. He was very drunk, and wanted a sub. Witness told him that he had had what was coming to him, and requested him to leave. After a good deal of persua- sion complainant left. From first to last he (defendant) had not struck the man. By the Bench: He had seen a few spots of blood on the wall ,in the morning. The complamant created a good deal of amusement in his method of cross-examining the last witness. Mary Williams, wife of the defendant, said that she heard a fall after the complainant had left the kitchen. She did not bother any more about 'him, and thought that he had stumbled. On being asked if he desired to question the witness, the complainant replied: "No, I will not ask her anything. It is the same old story. P.C. Roberts said that he saw the com- pilainant that night about 11.30. He was under the influence of drink, and made the fol'lowing statement: "I fell down in the back of Dan Saer's house." Darnel Jones, 9, Tircoed Terrace, Glan- amman, gave evidence on complainant's behalf, to the effect that he found him lying on the roadside, bleeding profusely from a wound at the side of the head. He (witness) never saw any blows struck, and was returning from Ammanford at the time. The Bench dismissed the case, the chair- man adding that there was no corroborative evidence. TIRYDAIL GIRL'S BABY. I Rosaline Kate Morgan, 15, Station Road, Tirydail, Ammanford, summoned Thomas Vaughan, Llwynce'lyn Terrace, Penybank, Ammanford, to shew cause, &c. Mr. T. R. Ludford, Llanelly, appeared for the complainant, and Mr. H. Thompson, Swansea, defended. The complaipant stated that she gave birth to a female child on the 26th March, and of which she adjudged the defendant to be the father. She kept company with him Atom June to August last year. In November last s he again met him in Penvbank Road, an d in December she met def endaiit in Wind Street. She did not infornh him. of her con- dition. Her age was IfiL yean. I Under cross-examination, she admitted knowing a man named Jack Richards, and that she had been in his company since the b-rth of the child. She denied having been with him before that. She had been with him twice between September and December. She last saw Jack Richards about a month ago. On Peace Night (July 19th) she was in his company until about midnight. The conversation they had that evening was of a personal character, and he (Richards) wanted her to go away to Newport for a holiday. As a matter of fact, she had kept company with Richards since the child had been bom. He never came to the house. Her uncle left the house because she would not name the father of her child. Agnes Toombes, of 77, Parftyffynnon Road, said that she was an aunt to the complainant, and referred to an occasion when she met the parties in Wind Street. They both went in the direction of Tirydail Lane. James John, 106, College Street, said that he was asked to deliver a note from the com- plainant to the defendant. Witness saw defendant in the billiard hall of the Cross Inn Hotel. He took the note and read it, afterwards saying: What is this? It has nothing at all to do with me. You had better take it back to her, and tell her that I am very sorry for her condition. On being asked if he had any further message to deliver to her, he said: No. I must call to see her myself." He did not deny having been in her company. For the defence, Mr. Thompson submitted a complete denial. The defendant, Thomas Vaughan, admitted having spoken to her on two occasions, and that in August, 1914, he was working at Porth, and while on a holiday to Ammanford Cross-examined: He had been keeping com- pany with a girl at Porth. Edwin Evans, 21, Penybank Road, said that he and a friend met the complainant about a month before her confinement, in Talbot Road, when she asked him if he or his pal had seen Jack Richards. He replied in the negative. She then said: No, he does not want to see me now that he has got me into this trouble." Mrs. Mary Annie Evans, 19, Station Road, Tirydail, referred to a conversation she had with the complainant a few months before the birth of the child, when the name of Richards was again mentioned. Witness was always under the impression that complainant and Richards were sweethearts. On the occasion of the issuing of the summons,, complainant said to her, in reply to a question as to whom was to have the summons: Not the one you know, but to Tommy Vaughan." Witness retorted: It is your own business and it has nothing to do with me." She had seen com- plainant and Richards together on several occasions. The Chairman said that they felt sorry to see a young girl in that unhappy position, but after just consideration they found there was not sufficient evidence to justify an order being made. They, however, would point out that if at any time she had fresh evidence, then another hearing could be granted. The case was thereupon dismissed.
Garnant Cricket Topics. I The Gamant Eleven journed to Hendy on Saturday last, and a very enjoyable game ended in a win for the home team, by 75 runs to 46. One of the unaccountable things in connection with Garnant cricket of late is the failure of some of their reliable bats to get runs. On the other hand, if is very pleasing to find some of the other players turning out consistent run-getters. W. A. Hay and Sid Stone, for instance, have, with the exception of a few occasions, got double figures for some time past. The former is playing at the top of his form just now, and is quite a reliable bat. On Saturday, at Hendy, the batting of the Garnant team was woefully weak, particularly as there was nothing extra about the Hendy bowling to account for such a poor display. The only players to get double figures were Hay and Gerwyn Thomas, with 16 and 10 respectively. Men- tion must, however, be made of J. H. Hughes, who was unbeaten. He only scored 4 runs, but he defied the Hendy bowling. He might have been a little more enterprising,1 tis true, but still it was a good performance. Dai Hiddlestone was the most successful bow ler for Hendy. The homesters opened their innings with I. Evans and Dai Thomas to the bowling of Stone and W. J. Williams. Thomas was very strong on the leg side and scored fairly freely. Evans was brilliantly taken in the slips off the visitors' captain. Soon after, a double change was tried in the bowling, Bevan replacing his captain, and Fuller went on at the bottom end in place of Stone. It proved effective, and wickets fell cheaply up to the fifth, when, owing to heavy rain, the players had to leave the field for a time. Previous to this, Dai Thomas had been finely bowled by Tom Bevan, the swerve completely puzzling the batsman. His contribution of 16 was a very valuable one. After the rain had cleared, matters got exciting, for seven wic- kets were down for 37, although it is only fair to say that the bowlers were severely handicapped by the wet ball. At this junc- ture the home captain came in, and his reso- lute hitting saved the game for Hendy. It is true he had some luck, being missed twice off Fuller, not to mention a possible stumping chance. His score was 28. I have seen better fielding by Garnant, but some very fine catches were made. The Garnant bowlers' analyses were :-F uller, five wickets for 22 runs; Bevan, two for 22; and Williams, one for 8. At one period the first-named had three wickets for 3 runs. The return match and the final one on the fixture card is to be played at Garnant on Saturday next, when the home team hope to reverse the verdict. Before I close these notes, I should like to record my appreciation of One of the Old School's survey of the Garnant-Amman ford games which appeared in last week's Chronicle. It was a very honest attempt to sum up the merits of the season's encounters between the teams. However, I am sorry if I gave him the impression that I, belittled the performance of Ammanford's young players." The inverted commas are mine, as I am only aware of meritorious performances on the part of two, and these I mentioned in Lis Hopkins anu Mil. Davies. I purposely did not include Fletcher's name, as his per- formances were on wickets that any bowler with a little knowledge of break ought to do well, and, to say the least about it, some of his wickets were decidedly lucky ones. I judge a bowler on an average per- formance, and not by any particular feat of bowling. The above are the only three young players in the Ammanford side. With regard to the respective merits of the two teams, the final passage in the article in question was so palpable an admission that I need add nothing further, except to say one thing. Seeing that both sides have won two games each, I have the authority of the Garnant players to offer to play off a deciding game on any neutral ground, and I would suggest, in order to further cement the friend- ship between the two sides, that the losers pay' for a supper for both teams. This is offered in no offensive spirit. I want that to be clearly understood. It is simply a sporting offer in order that each side should be satis- tied as to which is really the better team. The Garnant secretary is prepared to meet any representative of Ammanford and make the necessary arrangements. ( EXCELSIOR.
OPEN-AIR MEETINGS ON AMMAN- FORD SQUARE. To the Editor, Amman Valley Chronicle. Sir,—At the risk ,of boring your readers by reiteration, I must again refer to the origin of this controversy. I shall do so because, while a lot of space has been devoted to expatiating on other matters, very little has been written about the real question at issue. In my very r i 1 1 I I rust lerteT l asited two questions, viz.(I) What was meant by the action that may be taken spoken of the resolution? and secondly, I asked those responsible to produce the slightest reliable evidence in support of the cnarge that our Socialist meetings were pre- judicial to the interests of the discharged men and their dependents." No fewer than four persons have essayed to reply to my letter. Their replies have been eloquent upon the alleged wickedness of the White House; the badness of the Bolshies," &c., &c., but rather silent upon the matter under considera- tion. Mr. Fred Thomas (in his notes week before last) exclaims very innocently that he would be the last person in the world to advo- cate action such as that taken, at Neath. Yet, in the very same notes a fortnight previously, he spoke of paving the way for action on somewhat similar lines to that of Neath. Having thus proved his own consistency, he goes on to castigate others for their incon- sistency Mr. Frank Dawson's letter, in your last week's issue, is an improvement on the others, in that it at least explains what the action that may be taken precisely meant. He outlines a plan of action as follows:— (1) Will wait and see the attitude taken by the police oiffcials." (2) Failing their intervention, we shall ask you, in a gentlemanly manner, to retire." (3) The attitude following this will be as you make it." Let me paraphrase this plan to see if we can understand what it implies. In other words, this is the scheme:—" First we shall wait to see what the Law and Constitution (as represented by the police officials) would do. If the Law and Constitution would not act in a manner suitable to us, we shall, secondly, revert to Direct Action, though in a gentle- manly manner. If the gentlemanly Direct Action does not accomplish the trick, we shall have no option but to, thirdly, start a little revolution." It is to be earnestly hoped that the loyal Trade Unionists Mr. Dawson refers to, who are being continually exhorted by the Capitalist Press to be constitutional, will not adopt the policy outlined by Mr. Dawson. If they do, they will promptly be dubbed Bolsheviks!' However, the plan-remained a plan. We held a meeting last Friday even- ing it was the largest and most successful we have ever had. The police did not inter- vene there were no polite requests to retire. Those who came from curiosity became interested some came to curse and remained to bless; and the large crowd went home quietly and peacefully, without any signs' of the revolution! All's well that ends well. Unfortunately, Mr. Dawson does not attempt to justify the charge that our meet- ings are prejudicial to the interests of the discharged men and their dependents." As I have said before, no evidence can be pro- duced, and the charge should never have been made. Several of my friends have been told that one of the objectionable statements is alleged to have been uttered by me. Characteristically, no one has ever charged me, personally, with the alleged statement. I mention it now because I want to give it the lie direct. I am charged (behind my back, as usual) with having at some time said that those who joined the Army were not men. I have never said such a thing, nor anything that could by any stretch of the imagination be construed into such a statement. It is a vicious falsehood, and I ask those who are spreading it to repeat It in the Press or in my hearing, and I will see that they are given an opportunity of proving it. I have the deepest admiration for those who joined the Army voluntarily. They did so because they sin- cerely believed it was their duty so to do when the country called. I did not join the Army because I place loyalty to my prin- ciples—International Socialism, and duty to my class, the international working class- above loyalty to country and duty to King. I am still loyal to my principles, and I still try to fulfil my duty to my class. I do not apologise for the attitude I took up during the war. If such a war breaks out again—(it is not at all unlikely we are at present hearing the murmurs of the trade war that precedes and causes all modem military wars; this time it is America)—I shall take up the same stand and in the meantime I shall do all I can to swell the ranks of the International Socialist movement, in the fervid hope that we shall be strong enough to stop the next war ere it begins. Holding these views, and working for these, among other ends, I can still appreciate the motto, Lest we forget." The country asked the men to fight; they gallantly responded, and the country should not forget them, but adequately support them now they are maimed, and do likewise for the widows and orphans. Is the country and its Government doing this? It is not. I read in the daily paper of 350,000 ex-Service men who are out of work, trying to eke out an existence on the miserly dole of 20s. a week paid by a Government that has, since the Armistice, squandered over 70 million pounds on the Russian War. And to add insult to injury, the Yellow Press shriek that these men are won't works." I read, day after day, of manifold cases of discharged men and their dependents left in dire need, out of work, a miserly pension, evicted from their homes. I am told that among the inmates of Llandilo Workhouse is an old soldier who served in the last war and the Boer War. This in a coun- try we were told was to be made fit for heroes to live in. Yes, indeed, Lest we forget. Who is forgetting, Mr. Dawson ? Is it the workers? Is it the Pacifists? Is it not rather the Coalition Government, who made such beautiful promises and never kept them, and the super-patriots who sang We don't want to lose you, but we think you ought to go "? What do they think now ? That the 350,000 ex-Service men who are out of work are loafers and won't works." A word or two on Mr. Dawson's replies to my queries:— (1) Mr. Bulcliffe spoke at Ammanford, and made the statement I wrote, in May of this year (1919). The local Branch of the Dis- charged Sailors' and Soldiers' Federation must have been in existence then, for Mr. Dawson stood as a candidate for the Urban District Council election on April 7th, 1919, under their auspices. (2) It is true there was a collier who, by his refusal to share," played into the management's hand in the minimum wage case; but Mr. Dawson knows who were the real culprits, and that they only used this case as a lever. And surely, Mr. Dawson, with your' experience in many coalfields," you ought to know that it is not correct to speak of men working on contract for another man. In this Anthracite District (noted for Bolshies," by the way) sub-contracting is taboo. (3) I did not say (see my letter again) that the majority of discharged soldiers are opposed to the Miners' Federation. What I said was that some of them were trying to undermine the unity of the local lodges of the Miners' Federation." In conclusion, let me thank Mr., Fred Thomas for his offer (in his notes) to me to speak to the members of the local Branch of the Discharged Sailors' and Soldiers' Fede- ration. I would be very glad of such an opportunity. I have written to Mr. Thomas accepting his offer, and proposing to speak oiL the question of: Is the Socialist propaganda of the White House prejudicial to the interests of the Discharged Men and their Dependents? Mr. Dawson knows as well as I do the result of the meetings of discharged men who are in the Miners' Federation, held at the local pits, so that I need not further stress the point of whether the majority of discharged men are against the holding of Socialist meetings. Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for your usual kindness in giving my letter publicity on this, possibly the last, occasion for some time that I shall trouble you or your readers.-I am, yours, &c.. 1- JIM GRIFFITHS.
