RHAYADER GUARDIANS RE-ELECT THEIR CHAIRMAN. GUARDlAJ.S' ATTENDANCES. GUARDIANS' ATTENDANCES. Present at the annual meeting of Rhayader Board of Guardians, on Wednesday, were Messrs. Ed. Price (vice-chairman), B. P: Lewis, J.P., C.C., J. Evans, E. Morgan, A. Edwards. Thos. j Stephens, Dd. Davies, E. E. Thorn: W. Evans, J. Jones. Dd. Mills. Thomas Mert ui, T. Hamer, T. Jones and E. D. Prothero (cierk). The clerk was elected chairman pro. tem. Relative to the election of chairman, Mr Ed. Price said he did not know whether it was right to re-elect their chairman (Mr D. C. Davies) in his absence, but Mr Davies had made great sac- rifices to attend the meetings, and had much ex- perience. His work at Llandrindod Wells helped him greatly, and his administration of the Poor- Law was very sound. He always thought of the weak and those who needed his help. Mr Davies was also a most efficient chairman, and .he, therefore, proposed he be re-elected. Mr B. P. Lewis said the Board was always for- tunate in having a good chairman. Mr Davies's knowledge of the Poor-Law was excellent, and he had great pleasure in seceding Mr Price's pro- position. The motion was now carried unanimously. Mr B. P. Lewis remarked that Mr Ed. Price was always at the Board meetings and made an -excellent vice-chairman. He was invariably care- ful over matters that appertained to the Board, .and he (Mr Lewis) had not the slightest doubt that everything he did would be done well. He, therefore, proposed Mr Price be re-elected to the vice-chair. Mr Evan Morgan seconded, and the proposition was carried. Mr Ed. Price thanked the members for their re- newed confidence in him and their kind remarks. He had always tried to do his best and had at- tended every meeting for years. The clerk then read the attendance of members for the year ended the 15th uIt., and this was as follows :-311' D. C. Davies (chairman), 22, out of a possible 26; Mr Edward Price (vice-chairman) 26; Capt. Phillips (away on national duty), 0; Mr T. Hamer, 10; Mr E. P. Careless, 3; Mr A. Edwards, 7; Mr E. B. Hughes, 7; Mr B. P. Lewis, 23; Mr Jas. Price, 13; Mr Thomas Stephens, 15; Mr John Jones, 13; Mr E. M. Jones, 6; Rev. A. Jordan, 3; Mr Thos. Davies, 7; Mr E. E. Thomas, 18; Mr J. Jones, 25; Rev. D. L. Thomas, 18; Mr T. Mefedith, 10; Mr Evan Price, 17; Mr D. Mills, 17; Mr W. Evans, 18; Mr Evan Morgan, 23; Mr John Evans, 26; and Mr E. P. Jones, 12. The master reported that 48 vagrants had re- ceived relief during the past fortnight, an increase -of one as compared with the corresponding period last year.
FOOTBALL. I LLANDRINDOD WELLS CHALLENGE CUP. WON BY OLIVE'S XI. (R.A.M.C.). I (By "Hygieia. ") I The final for the Llandrindod Wells Challenge Cup and a set of medals put for competition among the R.A.M.C. took place on the Rock House Ground, Llandrindod, on the 22nd ult., before a pretty good attendance, a large proportion of which was in khaki. Elevens captained by Ptes. J. Olive and E. Williams, respectively, were successful in reaching the last lap, having defeated other elevens during the preceding week. Teams.—Olive's XI. Ptes. W. Pontin, J. Olive, G. Reed, E. Evans, H. Evans, Corpl. Whitehead, Ptes. H. Whitehead, G. East, T. I. Davies, W. F. Evans and E. J. Harris. Wil- liams's XI. Ptes. J. F. Powell, T. J. James, Sergt. Silver, Ptes. A. Williamson, E. Williams, W. D. Jones, D. J. Jones, D. Jones, C. C. Hughes, R. Griffiths and T. Evans. Referee, Mr H. E. Morris. Olive's team had to face both wind and sun in the first half, but they managed to keep their goal instact, and half-time came without any score, the nearest attempt having been a long shot from H. Whitehead, outside right of Olive's team, which hit inside the far post and came back across the'jaws of goal to be scooped out by James, the opposing full-back. Early in the second half, Olive's team went ahead, East placing a corner-kick splendidly and H. Evans scoring. After this reverse, Wil- liams's XI. played better than at any previous por- I tion of the game, and, with the least bit of luck, would have equalised. They failed to do so, however, and T. 1. Davies put Olive's side two I ahead after beating a couple of men in a dribble through the centre. Powell appeared to have a chance of saving his shot, but, with the sun in his eyes, let the ball go through after touching it. Williams's XI. were the more dangerous aide after this, and Olive was beaten several times, but Pontin guarded his goal so well that it never was captured, and time came with the score :— I Olive's XI. 2 goals. I AVilliams's XI. Nil. Apart from the two goals, there was nothing between the teams-in fact, the losers were, if anything, the more dangerous side. Pontin was the busiest of the two custodians. He acquitted himself well, and with Olive, who was safe at full-back, made the two best defenders on view. H. Evans, who played a robust game in the middle, was the best half-back, and T. 1. Davies the cleverest forward. Sergt. Silver, at left back, was the best de- fender on Williams's side, and the captain, at centre-half, tried hard to get his men going. T. Evans, who played outside left in the first half and centre in the second, wa.s the smartest for- ward, and two or three times was unlucky in not finding the net.

I Crickhowell County Court. I COMPENSATION ALLOTMENT. At Crickhowell County Court, on Thursday, before His Honour Judge Hill Kelly, Mr Thomas Vaughan, solicitor, mentioned a compensation matter arising out of the death of Wm. Lewis Pritchard, farmer and mason, Ffwddog, Llangat- tock, who died from injuries received in an acci- dent caused by falling from some scaffolding on a house undergoing repair. It was explained that the sum paid into court, JE189 12s, was an agreed figure. Mr Vaughan, who appeared for the widow, said there were two children of the mar- riage, a boy aged 19, and a girl 14 years of age. Mrs Pritchard intended carrying on the little farm. He applied for a sum of X80 to be paid out immediately to the widow, and His Honour made an order to this effect, the balance to re- main in court, interest thereon to be paid to the widow, with liberty to apply at any time. A local tradesman sued the Great Western Railway Company for £1 5s 3d, damage alleged to have been caused to his goods while in charge of the company. Mr L. H. Hornby, Newport, de- fended. After bearing the evidence, the Judge said there was no proof that the goods were damaged while in charge of the company, and, in these cir- cumstances. judgment would be given for the de- fendants.

I War and Politics. On Tuesday in last week, the Prime Minister laid before the House of Commons, in "secret session," the Government's proposals for dealing with the recruiting problem, and the results of the inquiries conducted by the Government "in order to examine all considerations relevant to" that problem. These considerations include (a) the demands made on our supply of labour for the needs of the Navy, Mercantile Marine, Munitions and other essential national services, and (b) the bearing of finance, and in particular of the finan- cial aid rendered to our Allies, upon the question of the number of men that can be taken from the resources of labour after provision has been made for the services already specified. To put the second consideration in a somewhat different form, the industries engaged upon producing com- modities for export must be kept at a certain level, or our credit will not be sufficient to maintain the necessary financial assistance which we are ren- dering to our Allies, and, also, the purchasing power of the money employed to buy munitions and other supplies in the United States for our Allies will be seriously diminished. From the results of this examination has been deduced the number of men that could be safely spared from industry during the present year. There are obviously grave reasons why the data which the Prime Minister supplied to the House of Commons, and which were also placed before the House of Lords in a parallel "secret session," should not be made public, and thus give to the enemy information which would be of great value for the adjustment of his future plans and dis- positions. But, as Lord Crewe pointed out, it was desirable that Parliament should have these data before it in order to form a well-considered opin- ion upon the Government's proposals. While there is complete unanimity in the country upon the necessity of carrying the wjir to a final and triumphant conclusion, there is a cleavage of opinion in regard to the number of men, and the kind of men, who are available for service in the Navy and the Army. The proposals which the Government have put forward have been arrived at after keen discussion in the Cabinet, and on Wednesday of last week, it will be remembered, Mr Asquith had to announce that there were still points of disagreement which, if not settled, would lead to a break-up of the Government. This disaster—as the great majority of thinking people in this country regarded it, and as the delight of the German Press at the prospect shows that it would have been-was happily averted. The plan upon which the Government is agreed will not, as Lord Crewe said, "meet the full desires of per- sons of either extreme view." But there is every reason to hope that, with a full knowledge of the conditions of the problem, the great majority of the members of both Houses will be'able to accept, and loyally support, the Government plan. The Prime Minister stated in the House of Commons, according to the official report, that recruiting up to date has not furnished what is necessary to fulfil our proper military effort." and this failure is due, not to an over-estimate of the men available, but to the length of time which must be occupied in sifting individual cases. The Government have adopted four "relatively minor proposals" to meet the situation (a) Prolongation of service of time-expired men till the end of the war. (b) The Military Authority to be empowered to transfer men enlisted for Territorial bat- talions to any unit. (c) Exempted men to be liable for military ser- vice immediately on expiry of certificate. (d) All youths under 18 on August 15th last to be brought under the Military Service Act as they reach that age. But what may be called the "major" proposals of the Government go much further. They are :— (1) If by May 27th, after special efforts to obtain the required men by voluntary enlistment from unattested married men, 50,000 have not been obtained, Parliamenat will be ask- ed forthwith for compulsory powers. (2) The same course will be taken if in any week after May 27th, 15,000 men have not been obtained by direct enlistment, any surplus above 15,000 beiang carried over to the next week. (3) These arrangements wiil be continued until 200,000 unattested men have been obtained. There was a debate in the House of Lords upon a proposal for a secret ses- sion. criticism being mainly directed ag- ainst the procedure adopted. In the House of Commons, before the Prime Minister, by the form of calling the Speaker's attention "to the fact that strangers are present," closed the pro- ceedings to the public, Mr Birrell made a grave announcement in answer to questions. A rising took place in Dublin at noon on the preceding Monday. The Post Office was seized, and tele- phic communication was cut off, and the rebels k possession of four or five parts of the. city. In the couirse of the day soldiers arrived from the Curragh, and, at the time of the Chief Secretary's statement, the situation was well in hand. It had been announced earlier in the day in an Admiralty communication to the Press, that a German vessel attempting to land arms in Ireland had been sunk, and the crew and passengers rescued, am- ongst them being Sir Roger Casement, formerly a member of the British Consular Service. This culminating folly and criminality of a compara- tively small and mad1,- fanatical section of .the Irish people is a grievous blow to Mr Redmond and the other leaders of the National Party, who have striven from the outbreak of the war, and on the whole with conspicuous success, to secure the loyal support of the Irish people for the Empire's struggle against German militarism, barbarity, and deliberate policy of outrage upon the rights of small nations. In the reply of the British Government to the American Note of November 5th last, regarding this country's conduct of the blockade, the French Government has associated itself. The chief points of the Note are (1) The evidence of Ad. miral Jellicoe that it is impossible to make an efficient search of vessels for contraband at sea, and that the attempt to do so would expose the neutral vessel to danger from German submarines; (2) the British Government and the Allied Govern- ments declare their adherence to the principle that the ultimate destination of a cargo, and not mere- ly the port it is bound for, must be considered in determining its liability to seizure, and for this the law otf the United States itself affords indis- putable precedent; (3) The principle adopted by the Federals in the American Civil War that, "hostile destination being a matter of fact," all relevant considerations should be taken into con- sideration in determining it, is declared once again bv the Allied Governments (4-) Tt. ic Hkmxm Tnr comparative statistics of the first nine months of 1913 and 1915 respectively, that the trade of the United States with the Scandinavian countries and Holland has not suffered injury; (5) By the test of results the blockade is shown to comply with the rule that a blockade, to be legal, must be "ef- fective" (6) The British Government desire to assure the United States Government "that they will continue their efforts to make the exercise of what they consider their belligerent rights as little burdensome to neutrals as possible." Those critics of the Foreign Office who have ac- cused it of lengthening the war by interfering with the Fleets' blockading activities, show some dis- position to seize upon the solicitude which the British Note expresses for neutrals' inconvenience, and on the contention that American trade has suffered no injury, as confessions of weakness. The proofs given that the blockade is "effective" are judiciously slurred over. We entered into this war in defence of the rights of neutrals and we have conducted it in a manner which justifies us in expecting the moral support of the United States, the Government of which has announced its intention to undertake the task of championing the integrity of neutral rights. Our Government has no need to stand in a white sheet before the self-constituted tribunal of our domestic "ginger" groups because it has striven, not without suc- cess, to combine regard for neutral interests with an effective blockade of Germany.

Radnorshire Small Holdings. I ALL SCHEMES FINANCIALLY SOUND. I I 1,000 ACRES OF LAND OFFERED FOR I EX-SEE VICE MEN. Sir Powlett C. J. Milbank presided at a meet- ing of the Radnorshire Small Holdings Committee at Llandrindod Wells on Friday. The following statement as to the financial posi- tion of the council's schemes was presented "The council have at present four schemes, viz., Conjuror's Farm, Cwm Farm, Glanclewedog, and Llanolley. The accounts on March 31st, 1916, show the balance in hand on Conjuror's Farm fo be X37 6s 8d, after paying for the re- pairs to Garth Cottage. As regards the Cwm Farm, the accounts show an adverse balance of X125 2s, but as regards this £360 of the loan for the erection of the bungalow has been paid, leaving X105 still due, which will be paid in the course of the next two years. There will then be £48, being the amount of the loan repayment, which will be available to wipe off the adverse bal- ance on this account. As regards Glanclewedog, there is an adverse balance of £ 3 7s 3d on this scheme's account, as the payments slightly ex- ceed tiie income, and this cannot be avoided un- less the rents are slightly increased. The Llan- ollev scheme account shows a balance in hand of £ 29 13s 8d. Taking the schemes altogether they appear to be financially sound at the present rent- als.. Two tenants were in arrear with their rent to the extent of t9 and J68 15s, but in the former case this is more than balanced by a. counter ac- count, due from the council to the tenant's surety, and in the latter case the rent has been paid since March 31st, 1916. Although the majority of the tenants pay their rent promptly, a few of them do not pay for a considerable time after the rents become due, and the auditor has called at- tention to this in his«feport. In some cases there have been very exceptional reasons for the delay, and in no case has the council lost a single penny of rent." Mr B. P. Lewis said the accounts were more satisfactory than he expected to find them, and tthe c hairman agreed, saying they had worked out all right. The Land Agent (Mr C. S. W. Powell) presen- ted the following report Four new applications for land were received, one being a discharged soldier who desires about 10 arces in Llandrindod district. Two others require 10 acres each, and the remaining one four acres. Each of the applications I consider to be sound and the land required should be procured. One applicant for 10 acres who has worked on the land for about 20 years and who has already some 3 acres, asks for land which adjoins his. As this required land is on the outside of a large farm and already contains an old unused building which for a few pounds could be made into an excellent cowhouse, this makes the application a particular- ly sound one, because it does away with the erec- tion of expensive new buildings. All the above are receiving the necessary attention. The De- partmental Committee for the settlement of ex- service men asked for information as to suitable areas in the county for Small Holding Colonies, the blocks of land to be of a minimum of 1000 acres. After seeking information I found that over 1000 acres of land in a suitable area which would form a "block" were to-let. This infor- mation I sent on at once to the Board of Agricul- ture's representative for Wales, with the consent of the agent of the land in question, who intima- ted his willingness to meet the Board's represen- tative on the required land at any time." Referring to the proposed scheme for the settlement of ex-service men on Colonies, the chairman said that Sir Francis Edwards, M.P., and himself real- ised the difficulty of obtaining a suitable holding of 1,000 acres in Radnorshire within fences, and he had written to Lord Selborne on this point. He had also written to Lord Selborne pointing out that there was no representative Welshman on this committee. He received an acknowledgment from his lordship, and subsequently Lord Sel- borne wrote enclosing a copy of the reply he bad sent to the Welsh Agricultural Council on this matter. In this letter, Lord Selborne stated that he was unable to carry out the wishes of Wales in this matter, but he did not agree that the interests of Wales had been neglected. Sir Harry Verney, the chairman, was conversant with the needs of Wales, and although no Welsh witness had been called, the committee had had a me- morandum from Mr John Owen, a Welsh Inspec- tor of the Board of Agriculture, on the matter. The chairman added that he did not regard this as satisfactory. He knew Sir Henry Verney. He was an excellent agriculturist, but it did not follow that because he had an estate in Wales that lie knew all about Welsh agriculture any more than it did that he (Sir Powlett) kaew all about agricultural conditions in Scotland because he had some property there. There ought to be a man on this Departmental committee who understood Wales at large. He had again written to Lord Selborne OH this matter, and he noticed that the Welsh Agricultural Council had also done so. Dr. Harding said he was sure the committee ap. proved of the action of Sir Powlett, and he moved that a resolution be passed expressing the opinion that it was imperative in the interests of Wales that a representative of the Principality should be I added to the committeae. Mr B. P. Lewis, in Seconding, said they all agreed that Sir Powlett had taken the right line. The resolution was agreed to. The clerk reported the receipt of a long letter from Mr Evan Lewis, of Hill Farm, near Gwystre, who wants a small holding on Abercamlo Farm, and the matter was left in the hands of the clerk.

Saving of Sixpence. BUILTH'S URBAN RATE. I RE-APPOINTMENT OF CHAIRMAN AND VICE-CHAIRMAN. Builth Wells Urban Council's annual meeting was held on Thursday, s Members present were Messrs. Gilbert Eadie, H. T. Price, D. F. H. Williams, John Duggan, John Morris, T. R. Worthington, E. S. Davies, W. Walter Lennard (deputy clerk), Telfer Smith (surveyor), and I W. J. Morris (sanitary inspector). Dr. W. Black-Jones (medical-officer) was also present. Mr Gilbert Eadie (chairman) observed that, from the agenda, they would see the business of the council was to make their appointments of officers for the ensuing year. Mr D. F. H. Williams said that, according to the order they had received from the Local Gov- ernment Board, there had been no election of councillors this year. Therefore, he was of opin- ion there should be no change of officers, but that the old ones should be re-elected. Personally, he was in favour of re-electing Mr Eadie as chair- man of the council and the same should be done with regard to the vice-chairman, and also all the members of the committees. He would be glad to hear the opinion of other members on the point. Mr H. T. Price stated that he held the office of vice-chairman last year, and. therefore, did not feel inclined to give his opinion on the matter. Mr John Morris observed he was prepared to fall in with what Mr Williams had said and favoured the re-election of the old officers. Mr T. R. Worthington said he was in agree- ment with what Mr Williams had said. Mr E. S. Davies also favoured the re-election of the old officers. Mr J. Duggan said he could not support the suggestion, as he believed that things should take -their usual course. They were annual appoint- ments and should be made as usual. Mr John Morris remarked that there had been no election this year and he could not see any ob- jection to the suggestion made by Mr Williams. Mr D. F. H. Williams moved, and Mr Edwin Stanton Davies seconded, that the old officers be re-elected, and all the members present voted for the resolution with the exception of Mr J. Duggan. Mr Eadie remarked that, as it had already been said, there had been no election this year, and now. so far as they had re-elected him to the chair for another year, he hoped he would be able to enlist their support during the coming twelve months in the same way as he had done in the past. He could, with confidence, look to the members for help to carry out the work of the council in the future as in the past, and hoped to be able to discharge the duties of chairman to their utmost satisfaction. During the past twelve months they had been able to economise, and he hoped that, with their co-operation, they would be able to cut down the expense in future. The deputy-clerk reported that, during the past year, the council bad assembled twenty-one times and that the attendance of members was as fol- lows :-Messrs. Gilbert Eadie, 19; H. T. Price. 16; John Duggan, 15; John Morris, 15; H. V. Vaughan, 5; E. S. Davies, 11: Howard Lewis, 15; D. F. H. Williams, 9; and T. R. Worthing- ton. 17. The deputy-clerk stated he had received the list of all, serving with the colours, for the parish of Builth from the Vicar. Mr H. E. Price said that probably it would be advisable to go through the list, as it was easy enough to leave some names out. The deputy-clerk said that he had not been able to go through the list, and they would have to continually add to the same, as more men would have to join very soon. The list was to be sent to the clerk of the Breconshire County Council and revised from time to time. A committee, consisting of the Chairman and Councillors E. S. Davies and T. R. Worthington, was appointed to revise the list with the deputy- clerk. The surveyor reported that the water had 'been laid on to Erwhelem. The finance committee recommended a rate of 3/- in the t-a reduction of 6d in the £ on last year. Mr H. T. Price asked if any money had been allotted for new work during the year? The clerk replied to the effect that no money was included in the estimate for any new work. Mr H. T. Price said he intended to suggest a reduction of the bank-balance, but now there was a reduction of 6d in the X, he was quite satisfied to allow things to remain as they were. The estimate was adopted. Mr Duggan brought up the question of tar- spraying the streets, and the clerk was instructed to communicate with the Brecon and Radnor County Councils on the matter. Dr. Black Jones added that the health of the town was good and free from infectious disease.

The arrangements were in the hands of Mr J. I Mainwaring, and much of the success was due to his able services.
Llandrindod Wells Horse Sale. On Thursday afternoon, on the Lknerch Hotel field, Llandrindod Wells, Messrs. Campbell and Hamer, auctioneers, held their second horse sale, when 50 horses came under the hammer. The judge for the prizes was Mr D. M.

Davies (The Mill) is superintendent. Mr D. Mor- gan, treasurer, and Miss Eva Wooiey, secretary. A very large number of children and adults par- took of a sumptuous tea, served by a band of loyal and most wiiiing workers. The entertainment —presided over by Mr T. Vaugr, han, solicitor, Crickhowell—commenced with the sillging of "Hen wlad fy nhadau." The chairman followed with an address. A lengthy programme, con- sisting of a variety of items, was evidently ap- preciated by a crowded audience. This year the musical items were more numerous than in the majority of these annual gatherings, and the ac- companists, who efficiently played with the organ or the piano, were Mrs Harris, Miss Annie Davies and Miss Lily Morgan. The piano was kindly lent for the occasion by Mr and Mrs Dunstan, who were very warmly thanked for their kindness. The following contributed to the programme :— Pianoforte duet, Miss Lily Morgan and Miss Irene Link (Abersychan); recitations, Idris Powell, Horace Thomas, David Thomas, Nancy Bevan, Nan Roberts, Willie Thomas, Nancy Thomas, Jeffrey Thomas, Elvan Harris, Gertie Dunstan, Morton Morgan, Peggy Jenkins, Aubrey Jenkins, Emrys Morgan, Jack Jenkins, Jennie Thomas, Wyndham Powell, Inez Dunstan, Wil- fred Davies, Jimmy George, Gwladys Davies and Jack George; solos, Peggy Jenkins, Cissie Wat- kins, Katie Thomas, Gwladys Davies, Elvan Harris, Nellie Dunstan, Gertie Morris (Llan- ddetty) and Mr Austin Cox; duets, Gwennie Jen- kins and Mary Davies, Nellie Dunstan and Gwen- nie Jenkins, Mrs Sarah Morgan and Miss Annie Davies, and Messrs. Austin Cox and Charles Davies (encored); trio, Nellie Dunstan, Mary Davies and Gwennie Jenkins; quartette, Mr A. Cox, Mr C. Davies, Miss A. Davies and Mrs S. Morgan (sang twice); and mixed party, "Sing the love of Jesus" (conductor, Mr Dd. Ppwell). The children's choir sang "Revive us again" and "I'm a little pilgrim, and the adult choir, "Moab" and "0 I I delight in singing. After passing the usual vote of thanks, the audience very heartily joined in bringing to a close an excellent meeting by singing "God save the King.
