SWANSEA'S TANK. CIVIC RECEPTION FOR SAVINGS PRESENTATION "THE lONG TRAIL" After a lengthy and adventurous trek through milos of streets. Swansea's war saving* presentation tank" reversed on to its "fiml bed (of concrete) at the Icwer .ncl of the Recreation Ground on Tuesday evening. The procession was from an on- looker's point of view the moft comical, from thjt of the participants probably the mos: exasperating, Swansea has known for some time. The old warrior was 1 i 'hours late in arriving at the Palace from the Hafod goods yard. and the smoky exhaust and some steam was evidence that his engine wa,g overheated. That was owiniT to a de- fective fan bolt that frequently gave troubl e and caused delay during his pro- gress to his final resting place, and to i.he further fact that old as 'he is and having tpean long laid up, the usual danger of broken tracks on hard, and especially etoap-Mockpd. road was accentuated. So h* never went more than half-pace. Everything considered, he did well. A LIVELY INTEREST. The town displayed a lively interest w,hic-li. while less than that inherent in the Battalion cadre'* home-coming, was also of an infinitely lighter, niorl impersonal iind, since it was a mere machine, not nien, th, people linr-d the streets to see, and for a much smaller section of the crowd than on the previous day had the »ight anything sombre about 4t. To the average man the¡ tank is even yet little more than a. qu<^or, odd-shaped, steel box of mvsterie*. He will now, so far. as an early model is concerned, be able to satisfy Mmp of the qncneg in his mind, THE PROCESSION. Tn the procession there were the Tele- graph Messengers, Discharged Soldiers' and Police Bands. and a captured German gnn folbrwed the tank. The War Savings Association was represented by Mr. Roger Beck (chairman). Messrs. H. Macdonnell, Ityam Goldberg, A. J. Coo::e, and the sec- retary (Mr. W. TT. Ash mole): with tie f r. W. TT. M'iivor were Aldermen A. Sinclair and G. Hemrrdngs. Messrs. L. G. Protheroe and G. Hill: Messrs. C. Mitchell and U. Jen- kins (clerk) represented the Guardians: Captains W. T. Da.? 1md B. Bo?om?y '??ra in eh"rg? ?F a dc?achmpnt ? V.T.C.; and Mr. W. O'Mruyn of a party of dis- charged soldier?. Ca>»tain. R. P. Foster, M.C. (attached to tho"Rational War Sav- ings Committee), iiirde the tank arrange- ments. and Lieut. A. T. Hepworth, M.C., conimnndaiit., As the tank parsed the Promenade its progress was watched b", an extraordinary erottd (t-h children had a rare time), and one of the lianas fittingly played "The Long Trail." On the roof of the tank when it had been placed in position the Mayor was supported bv councillor", war saving* rcp- Te&entrt;v«s. and Messrs. A. W. E. Wynne end W. Turpin. ASSOCIATION'S FINE RECORD. Mr. Roger Reeds, handing the gift over to the Mayor for the tOWTI, said he was not going to look their gift horse in the mouth and sav he was an arrant jib, but it-* journey that d ii.v was lik-e one 01 David's pongs—a Sons of Degrees—and it had many halt.* in it did not recog- nise him—it was a gentleman—a.s a jjh, but as a gallant old warrior, very reluc- tant to come to his rest J Proceeding, Mr. Beck recalled the wo He of Mr. Arthur Eden end Mr. W. H. Ash- mole following the Government's^ appeal far war funds, from w'hich the Swansea Patriotic War Savings Committee sprang. After that Appeal was made 4.709 persons deposited £ 75.973—(applaud—the separate deposits totalling The cost of ad- ministration, ir eluding printing, was £ 123. for Mr. Ashmole and every Council official gave his services, their gifts in that w::¡y being more than some men s who gave thousands of pounds. Lltimatei.v the :1.:alion became the channel through which the Government inade greater apr>eals to Swansea, and ulti- matelv follow-ingetank and cruiser i,it Swansea and neighbourhood raised £ 12,056,14?- (Applause.) SWANSEA'S 1,20,000,000. Tlie Mayor, accepting the tank, said next to a righteous caitFe-and the over- whelming opinion of the people of the eonntry was that our terrible task was a righteous ope—the country's essentials were niimk-rs of men end plenty of money. In both these Swansea had done gloriously and had every reason to he proud of its record. He believed 20 millions was nearer the figure Swansea contributed to the war. Mr. A. W. E. Wynne sail it was lieved private investments brought the total to 2t"millions. and that they held the tank record for Wales. This tank was not goorj enough for Swansea. Pembroke, Nfoniiioiith. anri. even little place* like Cardiff had nien o' war named after them, and it was time Swansea had. He thought the local and district members should Took into this. Alluding to th £ town's TIM,OM war inez-norial fund, Mr. Wynne thought it would to a bigger success if the children of the men who had given their lives while serving in the mercantile were in- eluded. A member of the Chamber of Commerce had promised to increase his £ 500 subscription to X-I,rko if this exten- sion wpre marie. BOROUGH TREASURER'S THANKS. Mr. W. H. Aslimole thought the tank should ba proudly kept because of its being a Britis-h iuvention that saved British lives. It was true that Swansea had raised 20 millions for the war; the 12,million,s mentioned by Mr. Beck came in after the appeal. He thanked all the people who had helped him, and particu- larly referred to the assistance of his deputy, Mr. IT. H. Morgan, whom they heartily congratulated on his Bath ap- pointment. They trusted he would be as lucceseful in Bath as here.

I BURIAL INCIDENT I I PEHTRE COLLIERS VIEWS I A STATEMENT BY THE MINISTER I We hovo received a number of letters regarding the Cwnigellv buri;»l incident. Somo offer fiat contradictions of state- ments already made; and in one letter certain words are attributed to the men concerned whitll we feel it would lie un- j' fair to print unless the writer was pre- parod to sign his name fa) it. One of the workmen," 111 the course of a letter stated to be written on behalf of the Petitro coal workers, savsj The miners stopped work on the day of accident, and consequently lost one day's wagcs; and. if they had only known that this affair would have taken place, they would haTe sacrificed another half-a-shiit on Saturday to spare the grare-diggers working an extra ten minutes. The extension granted to deceased's father was 30 minutes, and not twenty minutes as reported in former editions. Mr. Bliss should have seen that the dig- gers would have been present to finish their work when he granted the exten- sion. The funeral was at the church at ;3.20; at the graveside 3.40; and it was 4.15 o'clock wlven the mourners left the Ceme- tery gates, so there wore 15 minutes in hand to till up the grave according to the time granted by".N,fr. B!iss. We must not forget that the majority of futierals that take place are those of the working classes, and are greatly de- I pendent on the attendance of working men to carry, because they cannot afford ) to pay fÓr other conveyances. I To avoid any further incidents of this kind, the Council should arrange with the diggers to commence work an hour later I in the morning, and finish an hour later in the afternoon, so that men would he able to get an opportunity of paying their last tribute to their fellow-workmen. THE MINISTER'S STATEMENT] I To the Editor.

As the i v-lio conducted the I whole service at the chapel, allow me to say that it is quite correct to say the ¡ foreman asked me to make the service as short art pos!'ib;:>; but he assigned no reason for his request, and it -s quite in- correct to 63y if,- %vas V) minutes before the mourners left the sdifiee. I stated publicly I had been asked to make the service as brief as I could, and, having I th:* disposition to oblige, a« far as my public ducies would nEow, I made the service as as what, in miy- consistent with the eolenicit-y of the J occasion. Therp wa<s a pr?cioua& and promising I young life cut short in an instant it the coal-pit; there were the broken-hearted parents surrounded by their mournful children, and many sorrowing rel.ives and fronds, and ¿¡' !a:r? gathering of I 8ymp.a;this; ,no I most protest a?inst this et?nnn?Iy caHon? materialism, a?d say mr first o:jty was to them, to en- deavour to bring to them all the consola- ) tion that the affords j under micii trying circumstances, and to point out scrrne of tl.c lesstms of the sad ■avent. Without sacirficing tlwm, I tiried to ¡ make the service as brief as possible, snd I am certain it was nil well within the 20 minutes allovad. Several who were present are prepared to confirm my teti- mony a<6 to this, and there is an indepen- dent account in your local contemporary for this evening which agrees with mine. I am perfectly willing to let the public prjsen)!; give theiir judgment upon the matter, and to abide by their decision as to the lenirt-h of my ministration at the chapel. I am, dear Sir.

When the Llanelly harbour preempt for £ 5,206 2s. 6a. was submitted to the Cor- poration, it was explained that no balance sheet had beon drawn up. as the Collec- tor's OfficA was understaffed. Ald.

I WISHED TO BE EXPUNGED, MR. MORGAN HOPKIN AND HiS CREDITORS The adjourned application for dis- charge in bankruptcy of Mr. Morgan Hopkin came on late on Tuesday after- no-cn in Swansea County Court, before hie Honour Judge Rowland Rowlands. Mr. Vaughan Edwards, representing Mr. Hopkin, paid that two months ago this application was adjourned because he was then unable to give certain facts that his Honour desired to know. Since then Mr. Morgan Hopkin had fiied an affidavit. He had given the reasons for his previous bankruptcy, when he was 24 old. A sum of £ 82 5s. had been accepted by the Crown in settlement of their claim. All of the other creditors, with one exception, Mr. Thomas Morgan, desired to be expunged from the list of creditors. CONSCIOUSNESS OF GOOD ACT. His Honour: What are they going to get ? Mr. Edwards: Nothing. His Honour: Nothing except the con- sciousness of having done a good act. Mr. Edwards said they desired to with- draw, no that Mr. Hopkin might have the opportunity to rehabilitate himself, and he hoped bis Honour would take the same view, if, as guardian of public right, he could do so. His Honour pointed out there was a condition that debtor should ptiy 10s. in the t, and asked, What i-s the total amount of the debts? Mr. Edwards: i'l,t'77 10s. Id., of which £f;'S Îó due to his wife. There was. he said, every reason to hope that Mr. Hopkin would rehabilitate himself if dis- charged. Every lied y was prepared to help him, and to give him a chance. He added that Mr. Hopkin had paid the Crown 1:82 voluntarily out of his savings since his bankruptcy. He was receiving AM00 a year. The Judge said that was showing pre- ference for one creditor over another. Answering a question, the Official Receiver (Mr. Rees) said that no creditor preeeht. as far as he was aware. There w a* no question ahout the facts as reported. He did not know whether his Honour was satisfied about the first bankruptcy. The Judge: It is a -long time ago, hut I must remember that this is the second. 14 OR 15 CREDITORS. The Official Receiver eaid that the total number of creditors would be about 14 or 15. Referring to the wish to expunge claims, his Honour said it was a mysterious business to find claims given up. and especially referred to a claim of £161). "What I am wondering,' he Mid, "is whether some- arrangement has been roade. Why not let them release their clain^s under the judgment that I shall give against him? 1 am not thinking so much about the executors aloise, but of the creditors. The Official Receiver said there were only eiglit on the list, but about 15 were (scheduled. Mr. Edwards said th-st these others were onlv for small sums. The Official Receiver reod a letter he I had received from the Official Receiver of Newport. His Honour: I don't feel inclined to give Mr. Hopkin his discharge unless he submits to a judgment of so much in the £ that cover all unpaid debts. Answering further questions, Mr. Edwards eaid Mr. Hopkin's assets were nil. The house in which IH lin:-d b-elongeâ to his wife. She had property before they were married. On Ire half of hi* client, he said thfcy were prepared to take a reasonable judgment. His Honour: J.,t me expunge his wife altogether, and let him submit to a ju diz- ment of os. in the £ for all the rest, If there V;R, anv doubt in these circum- stances that Mr. Hopkin would prevail on his creditors to give' up OlD 58., that would give the benefit to the1 hard- hearted one. (Laughter.) The Official Receiver read a letter in which the Crown, whO- claim was £ 288 Us. 2d., agreed to accept £81. The Crown did not intend to make any other claim against the Estate, and therefore might be taken from tho list of creditors. HIS HONOUR'S DECISION. His Honour ordered the payment of a sum equal to a sum of 5fl.. in the £ on all the debts returned by debtor, except the debts due to his wi-ee aiid the Crown- all the debts of which the Official Re- ceiver had notice, including that of Morgan. Mr. Edwards: Your Honour makes his discharge subject to his consenting to that judgment? T.-Te t,. o,nsf- .nt tx) Official Receiver: He has to consent to it, and then do you decide how and when it is to 1)1-1 paid ? His Honour gave judgment for the pay- ment of a sum equal to 5s. in the .2 on all debts, except those of his wife and the Crown, to be paid in equal quarterly ir^taimcnts, the first within three months of the date of the judgment.

UNIQUE OFFER. I Labour Asked to Join Ebbw Vale Directorate. In the course of the Coal Commission's sitting, Sir John Sankey presiding, on Wednesday, Mr. Frederick Mills, managing director of the Ebbw Vale Steam Iron, and Coal Company, Ltd., expressed himself as absolutely opposed to nationalisation or to any scheme of dual control that would remove the last word from him as managing director. He said that he had invited a pro- minent Trades Union leader to join the board as an ordinary director. He believed that the labour unrest existing before the war, and now inten- sified, w as due to excusable and prevent- able ignorance on the part of the work- people. and. to the want of appreciation as to the part played in industry of dividend upon capital. He suggested that the remedy was for Labour to be- come capitalists and take a share in the management.
