WEEKLY COMMENTS. A WE have this week the pleasure of con- gratulating Mr. E. T. Jones most heartily upon his re-election to the chair of the Urban District Council, and also Mr. H. D. Rees upon his elevation to the vice-chair. During the period Mr. Jones has had the privilege of presiding over the deliberations of the Council, he has given every satisfaction, and has rendered to the town excellent service, and n'ow that the Council has unanimously decided to join the Harbour Trust in the pro- motion of its Bill in connection with the Bank of. England loan, and in view of the fact that Mr. Jones has acted as Chairman of the Joint Committee of the two bodies since its inception, and has, therefore, naturally been intimately con- nected with the whole of the negotiations, in these circumstances, we think the Council was well advised in re-electing him to the chair for another year. ———— + ————
By the elevation of Mr. H. D. Rees to the vice-chair of the Council, we should think that both the chair and the vice- chair of the Education Committee have been rendered vacant. We can scarcely imagine that the members of the Education Committee will feel anxious to heap all the honours obtainable on .the head of one individual. Mr. Rees has taken a very keen interest in education since he has been in the chair, and, now that he has gone one step higher, we think it would not he fair towards the other mem- bers if he sought to retain the chair of the Education Committee, and thus deprive them of the honours which might other- wise fall in their path through public life. When Mr. W. David was elected to the vice-chair of the Council, Mr. Rees was appointed to the chair of the Com- mittee, and this, we think, forms a prece- dent to go by. ♦
MR. NATHAN GRIFFITHS reminded us very forcibly on Monday evening of the proverb referred to by the Apostle Peter, namely, "The dog is turned to his own vomit again, and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire." On Monday afternoon, after indulging in a few low and despicable personal references to some of the members of the Trust, as is his usual practice, he referred to the rate which it would be necessary to impose upon the town if the agreement with the Bank of England was ratified by an Act of Par- liament as an unlimited one, whereupon he was told, and it was thoroughly ex- plained to him by one of the members and the Clerk, that it was by no means an unlimited rate, that the rate would be limited to an annual sum of Y,8,822, and that neither the Bank, nor anyone else, could insist on the imposition of a single penny more than would be sufficient to cover this amount. The explanation appeared to satisfy him, for he voted with all the other members in favour of promoting the Bill. Notwithstanding this, in the Council meeting held the same evening, Mr. Griffiths again referred to the rate which the agreement with the Bank would necessitate as being an unlimited one, with the result that he was again corrected, appeared satisfied, and voted with the other members in favour of joining the Harbour Trust in the promotion of the Bill. To all appearances, Mr. Griffiths has, twice the same day, been convinced against his will that lie is wrong, and, therefore, lie persists in declaring that the rate will be an unlimited one, with the sole object of opposing the promotion of the Bill if he possibly can, and thereby bring disaster on the town and harbour. We cannot bring ourselves to believe that he is quite so dull of apprehension as he appears to be, and the only conclusion we have been able to arrive at is, that he thinks it will be a popular move on his part just now to oppose the other members of the Trust and the Urban Council in their efforts to do what is undoubtedly the right thing towards the town. If we are correct in our conclusions, we do not hesitate to say that he is acting most dishonestly towards those woo reposed their confidence in him. It is his duty to serve those whom he represents faithfully and truly; he ought to have their welfare at heart, and not his own glorification, and the sooner the Ratepayers of Ward III. give him to understand what his duty towards them is, the better it will be for them and the town generally. Mr. Griffiths had tra- velled over the limits of decency before the election, when he called his fellow members thieves, swindlers, liars, and uncircumcised Philistines he has gone one better since, for on Monday last he insinuated that another member of the Trust was a murderer. If the Ratepayers of Ward III. have any self respect, we are sure it is not voiced by their repre- sentative, Mr. Nathan Griffiths. ————- +
WE have much pleasure in extending to the Rev. and Mrs. D. Wyre Lewis, pastor of Calfaria Chapel, our heartiest and most cordial welcome to Llanelly. Mr. Lewis was, previous to his advent to the town, pastor of Nevin Baptist Church, North Wales, and although he has been in Llanelly a few weeks now, we felt it would be infra dig. on our part to welcome him and his lady before the church of which he is pastor had the opportunity of publicly recognising him as such. That ceremony was, however, accomplished last Tuesday evening, when the whole of the Baptist ministers of the town, Burry Port, Dafen, and Llwynhendy, together with the veteran of Capel AIs, Dr. Johns Mr. Jones, Lloyd Street and Mr. Bowen, Ebenezer, cordially welcomed him to their midst, and heartily con- gratulated the church at Calfaria upon having so fortunately secured his pastoral services. The congregation which met Mr. and Mrs. Lewis on Tuesday night was a most appreciative one, and we feel sure they were delighted at seeing so many present. We hope the connection formed between them and the church will be a long-abiding one, and that both pastor and church will be blessed, and will prove a blessing to each other and the town generally.

Nicholls of Upper Water Street, attacked the two-year-old son of Mr. Ben Isiac, Upper Water Street, 01J Friday. The child's face was severely bruised and Dr. Ward had to stitch the wounds. The child at the time was in its own garden, and the dog got to it over the wall. The bulldog was prevented from doing further injury by I the child's mother.

Miss Stepney's Generosity. I RECREATION GROUND PRESENTED TO I THE TOWN. I A" District Council t LIe Jl18e<1ng 01 tl1e L!r:J:E1 ,IS nCe .OUlJC'll en Monday night. Mr. E. T. Jones presiding, a "letter was read from Mr. Thomas Jones, the agent to the Stepney Estate, stating that Miss Stepney desired him to inform the Council that she would be pleased to give them a strip of land between Andrew Street and Long Row as an open space for the children of that neighbourhood (hear, hear), provided the ground was kept clean and free from refuse, and that the Council fenced it off to prevent the encroachment of gipsies. Miss Stepney was prepared to pay the cost of levelling the ground and planting trees and shrubs, pro- vided they would he maintained by the Conn- oil. It would he necessary to reserve to Miss Stepney the right of access to Long Row. The Chairman said he had pleasure in moving that the Council accept Miss Step- ney's most generous offer. It would be a good thing if the other landowners followed her example. The Council had for some time been agitating for open spaces in different parts of the town, and he welcomed that offer. He hoped that very soon they would hear of someone following suit. Mr. D. R. Jones seconded. Mr. Nathan Griffiths supported, stating that from what Miss Stepney told him she was prepared to do a great deal more. The resolution was unanimously carried, and the Clerk was instructed to convey to Miss Stepney the thanks of the Council.
Queen of the Seasons." MORIAH JUVENILES' ANNUAL CONCERT. An event which attracted much attention on I Tuesday evening was the performance of the "Queen of .the Seasons" by the Moriah Juve- nile Choir, conducted by Mr. Dan S. Evans. Notwithstanding many counter-attractions, the audience must have given encouragement to those who had laboured throughout the winter months in organising and teaching a produc- tion of this kind. Such a laudable cause as the Sunday School (to which object the pro- ceeds were devoted) deserve* every support for the admirable work which it has accom- plished in the past. It was a splendid spec- tacle to witness the variety of colour and the animation the little choristers presented 011 the stage. Each individual performed the duties allotted in a. very creditable manner. Mr. David Protheroe proved himself an ad- mirable chairman, whilst although it was the first public performance of Miss Agnes Johnnes as accompanist she gave every satis- faction in that capacity. As there were such a number of children who took their parts so well, it would be invidious to single out any. Those who contributed to the miscellaneous part were:—Song, Miss Matilda Thomas; song, Mr. Isaac L. Williams; recitation, Miss May Twist; song, Miss S. J. Davies: song. Master Cliff Thomas: pianoforte solo. Miss Agnes Jobimes.

Defendant pleaded for leniency and said she. was a cripple and nearly blind. She had a sister at Llandilo, who was prepared to keep her. Mr. Thomas Jones said he would make eel quiries, and if the defendant's statement was true lie would pay her train fare. Defendan- replied that she would walk if she were discharged. Mr. Thomas Jones: She will not accept my offer. I am afraid she does not tell the truth. Defendant was discharged on promising to leave the town. —o— Mond.ay, before Messrs. R. H.

A Swansea contemporary on Monday nIgnT, stated that the proposal to grant honorariums to the officials at the Town Hall was "practi- cally dead, and likely to remain so." whilst the same evening the Clerk stated in the Council Chamber that he was preparing a re- turn which would be submitted to the in- vestigation committee that had been appointed to deal with the matter. The paragraph was inserted somewhat prematurely. Extract from the "Carmarthen Journal," Jan. 19. 1821-an advertisement regarding the running of the "coach mawr" from Carmar- then to London:—"The Cambrian Light Post Coach, carrying only four inside, leaves the Boar's Head Inn, Carmarthen, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday morning at four o'clock, through Llandilo, Llandovery, Brecon, Hay, Hereford, Worcester, Oxford, arriving at the Bull and Mouth Inn, Bull and Mouth St., London, the following evening at 6 o'clock." We have always given credit to the Oriental Stars for being up-to-date, but we should like to hear of anything to beat the following.

The death of Mr. John Johns, Parceithyn, removes from the Carmarthenshire County Council one of its most striking personalities. A horny-handed son of toil, whose language was not graced with the flowery eloquence of a modern miners' leader, he was nevertheless a fearless speaker, and could hold his own with the most accomplished speakers on an astonishing variety of subjects. If he thought he was in the right, all the reserve ammuni- tion of officialdom would have to be fired, and then it would not silence him, for he was never more happy than in the thick of a fight. A meeting of the administrative body of Carmarthenshire without him was not worth attending, for he wo ild invariably make a scene before it was over. Though qualified I as a colliery manager, he had faithfully stuck to pastoral pursuits, snd was a warm favourite amongst the agriculturists of West Wales. He succeeded Earl Cawdor in the chairmanship of the Standing Joint Committee, one of the most valued public offices in Carmarthen- j shire.
? Vocalist's Sudden Death. I MR. J. BRAZELL SUDDENLY EXPIRES. I A painful sensation was caused in Llanelly on Monday on the receipt of a telegram from I Fishguard conveying the news of the death, on board the Mauretania, of Mr John Brazell, a prominent member of the Llanelly Royal I Choir. Deceased, who was a tenor vocalist well known in South Wales, was with the choir on the tour in the United States, and stayed behind to take up an engagement there. He, however, decided to return, and, though being in the best of health on em- barking, be was seized with his fatal illness before reaching Fishguard. I Dec-eased, who was accompanied by his brother, Mr. David Brazell, R.A.M., had not previously complained of illness, and was taken suddenly ill. He was medically atten- ded to. but -expired from heart failure and brain fever on Sunday night. I Deceased had an appointment at Terrahanti, I Ind., but was persuaded by his brother to re- turn home. Mr. John Thomas, the conductor of the Llanelly Choir, when interviewed, said :1 did my level best at New York, on the day previous to our departure, to get him to return with us. but he would not do so. He elected to remain in the States, and to return to Ter- rahanti, where he had been offered a good appointment in a church as a soloist. He was an exceedingly fine vocalist: his singing was greatly admired in the States, and at the close of the tour he was in better voice than at the begi/ining. Apart from suffering from colds occasionally, he never complained of illness. He was of a most genial disposition, and was liked by all who knew him." The members of the choir are kindly re- quested to attend the funeral, which will take plac.e on Friday afternoon at 3.30 o'clock.
