On taking his seat, Mr Crew said that Mr Isaac Jones, the former chairman. had filled t-lia position very wall in the pis'. Wh>Lt :1k y had no knowledge of the work in its early Stages be thought that in the conduct of the proceedings he bad done splendidly, although he might have allowed them as members a deal of I their own way. He had presided over their proceedings during tho very serious periods. There was no doubt that in the early stages the distrid was n a critical condition. The officials to had done exceedingly well It wonld be remembered that 1st the outset they had some difficulty in the appoiut-nent of the Kxecutive Officer, but he thought that everyone would allreo, that in t,he selection of Mr Dalies they had done well, and iu him and the staff the committee need not be ashamed. Their Clerk too had rendered considerable help to the Committee.

DEATH OF MR SIDNEY I GODWIN, BLACKWOOD I I We regret to aunounco the death, which took place on Monday night, at his residence, Over-dale," Black- wood, of Mr Sidney Godwin, A native of Blackwood, he had largely contributed to its development. For eloven year-* he was. a member of the BedweUty Council, being first elected in 1934, aud in 191-3 he was appointed chairmun, and remained a member until last year, when he resigned in I conseqaenoe of ili-health. He was rice-chairman of the Western Valleys Sewerage Board, and, had his health remained good, would have been chair- man this year.

I the Nerves and Digestion. Have yon ever notioed that when yon are worried or under some special mental strain your digestion becomes upset ? Anxiety quickly cause* loss of nerve-tone throughout the system. Now the nervous and digestive systems are very intimately related, tf-d the one caunot become affected without the other becoming upset Bad Nerves spell bad digestion. Similarly bad digestion causes less of nervous energy. Re- store good digestion by stimulating the digestive organs, on which yon depend for nourishment from food, into healthy activity, aud robust health with full nerve energy will follow To ensure this take Mother Seigel's Syrup after meals. Its tonic and corrective influence on stomach, liver, and bowel-, gives it an easy first place HTnoag all digestive remedies. Hosts of people by personal test tave proved its results to be excellent.

ELECTION CAMPAIGN CAERPHILLY AND GKLLIGAKB DIVISION. MR A. ONIONS'CANDtOAT?RH j ContiHuin bis tour of t he c'msdtn. I ency, County Councillor Aifrcti I Onions, J. P., the L?bo?r candidate, addre??d a we!! attended meeting ?n Wednesday evening at the Presby- terian Church, Giifach, Burgoed, pre- sided over by Mr Moses Price, who whs supported by a number of promi- nent. workers in the L«boar move- ment. In the course of an interesting address, Mr Onions said he had been selected by a la'ge majorit y of miners of the constituency tu contest the seat on behalf of Labour. II-s hid from I he beginning been a strong supporter of the w-ir. believing that th- i't,ittitry a* in honour bound to participate in it. It it mid t ot dOlle so instead of democracy govtrning the world in future miliaria :> would bt) dominant, stud therefore liberty, freedom and justice would be ptactically not- existent. An Armistice having been arras ged, and hostilities having ceased the first thinif to do was to remove t*t-s!t it tiorts that had been placed on their liberties, such as free speech and a free Press, in the interests of the war. Free speech and a free Press were absolutely essential to a healthy democracy. The next task would be to obtain terms of peace which wonld bring about the destruction of militar- ism, 'wherever found, and every coun- t'y that would be a party to the pcaoe treaty. It should be a just, Ifighteons and permanent peuc., pro- viding security for sm-til nations to (tatermine theii- owii ntid full compensation for tfeosp coautiies that had been devastated by the operations of the war. The onteo-tio of the peace terms should also be a League of Nation4 for the defence and m no- tenance of the peace of the future. Mr Onions explained that the fact of the Labour Party having decided to withdraw from the Coalition did not mean that they wotnd not take part in the reconstructing and rebuild- ing of the nation. The Labour Party would always support whatever Government was in power so loug as the aims and objects of the Labour Party were carried out. The workers had done their share towards winning the war, and were, therefore, entitled to take part in the rebuilding of society. Some 3,000,000 munition workers would return almost immedi- ately to civilian life, aud would want to engage in peaceful occupat,ionp, and it would be the nation's duty to see that these people were properly looked after until they found profit- able employment in civil life. The Labour Party stood for this which is included in its scheme of recoustruc- tion. m: —
BEDWELLTY DIVISION. CAPTAIN WILLIAMS AND FREEDOM OF ACTION. Speaking at an enthusiastic meet- ing, held at Cross Keys on Monday evening, Captain W. H. Williams, the Coalition candidate for the Bedwellty Division, deprecated class warfare Men of all classes, he said, had united and won the war. They should now unite to gather in the fruits of victory. VYhatever the cost, the country mast st md by the men and women who bad made sacrifices on the field and at home, men and women who wanted to build up and not pJunge the conntry into the disorder desired by those who had no use for their own country. Labour must be firm and independent, instead of being hoodwinked. Men and women shoald use the franchise with a clear conscience, and not be misled by the block vote system, which debarred thdtaands from free. dom of action. (Hear, hear.) The British Workers' Laague ih the Bedwellty Division have decided to render all support to the Coalition candidate, Captain Williams. COALITION CANDIDATE'S ACTIVE CAREER. In an appreciation and brief sketch of the career of the Coalition Candidate for the Bedwellty Parliamentary Divis ior., and a discharged soldier, who saw service in Gallipoli and in other places, the Evening Argus" (Newport) says Capt. W. Henry Williams, Mai pas, Hedweiity's Coalition candidate, has won his way to a position of influence by ability and hard work. From an elemen- tary school he won a King's scholarship, and proceeded to Bangor Normal Col- lege, subsequently passing to London Cmversity and the London School of Economics. He is a Past FeHow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Chemical Society, and is a barrister. Captain Williams has held many import* ant appointments. Prior to reading for the Bar, he was lecturer in practical mathematics at the Municipal Technical School, Birmingham, and later assistant to the Director of Pidiiestiuii, Hong Kong. He also studied the administra- tion of Land Purchase Acts in Ireland. He enlisted at the outbreak of war, and saw active service in Gallipoli and else- where. He was subsequently disabled, and received hts discharge in 1918. He holds the King's Certificate of Honour, and the 1914-15 Ribbon. Since his dis- charge he has acted as Military Repre- aentative for Monmouthshire, and later as legal adviser to the Ministry of National Service. He is president of the Welsh Federation, and of the New- port Branch of Discharged Sailors and Soldiers. Capt. Williams has travelled extensively in Asia and Europe, and is the author of several educational pub- lications. He has also written exten- sively on land problems. He is an excellent platform speaker, and has. moreover, a capacity for leadership. If elected, he will doubtless come rapidly to the front in tbe pohical world." 0: ■■■■

Sanders, of Hersham Farm, Longcross, near Cbertsey, j said :—" I have cause to be happy these days, for since Doan'e Pills rid me of kidney disease, dropsy and rheumatism, ten years ago, I have enjoyed excellent health, and have been blessed with four of the bonniest children imaginable. We oall them Doan's Happy Family.' First Published in 1908. Interviewed on November 25tb, 1908, Mrs Sanders, who was nursing a winsome baby girl, said :—" But for Doan's Pills I wouldn't be sitting here as happy as you see me now. Two years ago, while first expecting motherhood, I was stricken down by kiduey trouble, rheumatism and dropsy. Oar worst fears were real. ised, for a baby boy was prematarely born and only lived eight days. Similar misfortune happened next year another baby boy was born and lived but one short month. I was almost broken-hearted at this repeated disappointment. Bat I later J read of a case like mine being remedied by Doan's Pills with the happiest after-results. So when next expectant, I used Doan's Pills right through my time. Imagine my joy when I found thorn effective. They rid me entirely of all tendency to kidney symptoms, and at the proper time the bonny baby girl YOll see was bQrn to me. Both she and I are in splendid condition, and we owe this to Doan's Pills.

GELLIGAER COUNCIL ANO I HOUSING. HOSPITAL CHANGES* I SOME HOUSING PROBLEMS. I A special meeting of the Gelligaer District Council was held at Hengoed on Friday evening, for the pnrpose of considering a letter from the Local Government Board in respect to the Council's Housing Scheme, and also to consider one or two other matters. There were present: Councillors Dd. Hopkins, J.P. (chairman), B: Hughes, Samuel Carter, Morgan Jones, Sidney Jones, H, Brown, Jonah Evans, (Rev.) Gilbert Williams, Gas Jones, John Edwards, W. J. Giles, Frank T. James (clerk), T. Rees Gabe (sur- veyor ). The Chairman explained that having regard to the urgency of the housing matter and the Armistice having come so suddenly upon the country, he and the Clerk had thought it desire able to call the Council together without delay in order to deal with the L.G.B.'s letter. The Clerk then read the letter hich asked for details of the housing scheme of the council, and pointed out the need of proceeding with any work which can be proceeded with in the way of road making and laying of sewers to provide work, and also stat- ing that if any officers of the Council were in the army, and the council's work was suffering from shortago in staff, and where prompt return was necessary to expediate the housing scheme, their fuU names, rank, regi- ments, and offioial nurabers should be sent to the President of the Board, who would do all that is possible to secure their return. The letter en- closed a form, containing several enquiries in respect to which answers were requested. These concerned the efforts of the Housing Scheme, and also what sites bad been selected and whether all the land neoessary had been acquired. Having heard the letter, the Conn. cil proceeded to disouas the nature of the answers to be given. The Clerk suggested that it seemed most desirable that the council should ask for the return of their surveyor, Mr Read, and the road surveyor, Mr Howell Jones, and this course was decided upon. One question was, whether the council was prepared to embark on their ho using scheme on the terms set out in the Board's Circular of March, 1916. Chaii man That has been decided on. on Mr S. Jones said this meant that they were prepared to bear a loss of 25 per cent. for a number of years. The Scheme was for 2.500 houses, and supposing the cost of their erection was double that of normal times, it would mean that every cottage formerly built for 9200 -will cost X400, and it would not be reasonable to expert a rental on that basis, and so the loss would very likely be con- sidered, and 75 per cent, would be borhe by the Government and 25 per vant. by the-ratepavem Olerk; Yo. wiil pefc nothing else. Nir S. Jones: Are we going m fo. the wbt)ie scheme H.t l)t.:n r Cluk: Reading between th linrs, I think flit-r will allow yoa to bniid in stages. Mr Jones asked whether a portion of the scheme would be sanctioned. Chairman: I don't think no. We must show a good scheme. Clerk; The question is whether you accept the terms submitted by the Board. Mr Gus Jones: I don't think at the present time you will get any to con- tract for the houses. Air Giles: Will they be sejf- suppo, tinl, ? Chairmau: No. Mr Jones raised that point. The Cterk explained the position and Tisn Mr Morgan Jones moved that the terms bu accepted. This was seconded and agreed to unanimously. The next question was w hen the scheme would be ready for submission to the Board. Tho Clerk said they had a part of the scheme at Bargoed for 114. booses, and that be would like to sny that Scheme No 1 sh&H be submitted in two months. Mr M. Joues moved that the soheme he got ready by January 31st. Clerk: If we do that and we can get Road and Jones back, I do not see why the other schemes should not be submitted at, the end of six months. Mr S. Carter moved to the above effect and the point was unanimously approved. In regard to the acquiring of land, the Clerk said everybody was wiliirig to let. land, and it was only a question of terms, so you have enough to go on with. it was agreed that the clerk should reply in the affirmative to the question as to w hother sites had been selected. PENGAM ROAD AGAIN. 1 ho next question raised was whether there was any work that could be at once put in hand, such as making roadi., laying sewers, etc. The Clerk reminded the couuoil of the inquiry that had leen held on the subject of making the Tstrad Mynach to Pengam road, and suggelted that it would be well to bring this road into the answer. Mr S, Jones asked if the Govern- ment would be equally generous in regard to public work carried out im- mediately. Such work, he said, would be at a higher price, and, therefore, he thought that some in. dacemeat should be offered to an authority for carrying oat work at the present time. The Chairman suggested that the Clerk be deputed to go to the Board and ask what part they would be pre. pared to take for the road to be proceeded with at once.—Mr M. Jones suggested that as each of the council's in the valley were con- templating similar schemes, it would be a good thing if the various anthorities could co-operate in their work, and to that end it might be well to send a joint deputation to the L.G.B.-The Clerk. said that the Pengam road had been the snbjeet of a Government inquiry, and the whole thing had been on the verge of decision when the war broke out, and then had to be deferred. On the motion of Roy. Gilbert Williams, it was decided to authorise the Clerk to see the L.G.B. to put before the Board the position in re- gard to the Pengam road, and to ascertain whether any inducements would be held oat for the work to be immediately pat in hand. Mr Gus Jones asked what the posi- tion was in regard to the Pengam road as to tho cost of construction, and whether it would not be well to got permission to inorease the amount originally estimated for to meet the increased cost of the work now. Mr Giles asked what assistance the Board would give the council in the matter of securing land. Clerk If you are good Coalition men we shall get the power (laughter). see
