I There was an excellent attendance at I the lecture given under the auspices of the Y.M.C.A. by Mr. Percy Allen at the Albert Hall, Swansea, on Wednesday night on the engrossing subject of Alsace-wrraine." The lecturer sketched the history of Alsace from some 6core years before the birth of Christ, when Caesar made the I Rhine the national barrier between the tribes of Germany and their newly con- quered territory of Gaul. Subsequent to I this, and especially throughout the last centuries the sympathies of Alsace-Lor- raine had been predominantly French. i It was in this territory that. the" A- j 6ellaise," that etirring national anti eni of France, was first sung; in Lorraine j Jean D'Arc, the greatest of all French > heroines, once lived. The speaker par- I ticularly emphasised the French sym- I pathies always inherent in the natives of j Alsace-Lorraine. j M. Le Bars presided, and a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the speaker. )

BROTHERS IN DOCK. West Wales Murder Charge. COURT CROWDED. I The story of the Cardigan farm tragedy was unfolded before Mr. Justice Baillache and a jury at the West Wales Assizes, at Carmarthen, on Thursday, when James Evans (20), farmer and his brother, Wm. Joseph Evans, a sixteen-year-old school- boy, were charged with wilfully murder- ing their widowed mother, Mary Evans (50), and their brother. Samuel Evans, on April 29th last, by shooting them with a shot gun, at Clawddmoei Farm, near Lampeter. The Court was packed, and hundreds who formed up in a queue outside, failed to gain admission. I Mr. W. Llewellyn Williams, K.C., and Mr. Trevor Lewis, (instructed by Mr. W. P. Owen), appeared to prosecute, and Mr. t; Trevor Hunter and Mr. Frank de Rolante r Davies, (instructed by Messrs Smifh, I Davies and Evans), defended. BROTHERS SIT SIDE BY SIDE. I The accused brothers, who sat sido by I Bide in the dock throughout the hearing. looked well, and seemed to be none the 'I vorse since their committal for trial at V A bera; ron in June last. Both pleaded not ? guilty, Mid the youn-er l'dsonr gazed mtently upon Mr. Llewellyn Williams, as ? eouncil outlined the case against them. CASE FOR THE PROSECUTION. I In opening the case, Mr. Llewellyn Wil- r liarns said that terrible as the charge of Jt murder must be, it was aggravated in thi& ?. GiSO by the fact that the allegation F against the accused was that the people they murdered were their mother and their elder brother. Mary Evans' hua- band died some 17 years ago. The eldest eon John Lewis Evans at the time of the crime was serving in the Army in Bgypt The second son Samuel Evans, 22 years of age, who was murdered, had served in the Army in France, and was taken prisoner and kept in captivity for two and a half years. When the Armistice was signed -he was released, and came home to Clawddmoel in December of last year. The third son was the accused James Evans. The fourth son was a collier in Ammanford, and the youngest was the accused Wm. Joseph Evans, a posthumous child, v.-ho was a pupil at Aberayron In- furmecliate S-ehool. Mary Evans was at OT!e time in humble circumstances, and was a farm servant, and in 1894 gave birth to her eldest sort, John Lewis Evans -who wa« born out of wedlock. That fact, explained counsel, had a very material fact bearing upon the case, for it might eupply the motive for the crime. THRIFTY AND INDUSTRIOUS. Mary Evans was a thrifty. industrious, hard working woman, who, as her children grew up, although the father was dead, cultivated a small holding of 28 acres at Clawddmoei with such suc- cess that she was able five or six year- ago to buy the holding. She had also ac- cumulated several hundreds of pounds, all savings, which she had deposited at the bank in Lampeter. She had also in- cured her life for .€?50, and the deceased eon Samuel had i!1ured his life for ?100, and counsel pointed out that the elder of the two aecud would he the heir-at-law if Samuel was got rid of. That was one of the suggested motives that instigated him to tho commission of the crime. There was also a hundred pounds to be divided between three surviving sons, the accused and the son at A.mmanford. Mr. Llewelyn Williams added, there was no doubt whatever that it was a case of mur- der. Several witnesses were then called to bear out the facts stated in learned counsel's statement. (Prooeedinff).

KILVEY WARD. I Mr. Davies' Candidature. 1 i A deputation from the Kih-ey Ward, j and arising out of the protest meeting j held the other evening in connection with the unopposed return of Mv. George j Colwill for the ward, waited upon the j Town Clerk on Thursday morning, and alleged that the mistake of Mr. Samuel Davies in bringing the nomination papers j for his candidature a day late was due i to information from the Town Clerk's j Department. 1 j LEGALLY CORRECT. I The Town Clerk pointed out that the correct dat-e for the receiving of nomina- tions had been published in the manner required by Statute, and that such in- formation had been given by the depart- ment. There must have been a mis- understanding as to the general remark that the nominations would have to be put in seven days before polling day. The matter therefore stands.
6th WELSH DEPOT. General Macdonough's Letter to Sir Alfred Mond. Sir Alfred Mond, Bart., M.P., has re- ceived an interesting letter from Lieut.- General Macdonough, Adj utant-General | to the Forces, regarding the headquarters of the bth Battalion of the Welsh Regi- ment. The Lieut.-General informs Sir Alfred that nothing is yet known at the War Office regarding a change being mado in the headquarters of the bat- talion. As a temporary war measure, the Adjutant-General says, he has ascertained the headquarters of the battalion was moved to Cardiff, so that the depots of the 5th. 6th. and 7th Battalions could be together, thiis facilitating the work. The cadre of the fith Welsh wag sent to this depot on its arrival in England for dis- persa1; and thfc Colours were taken to Swansea, where they were left. As our readers know that it was through the intervention of the Mayor, Sir Alfred Mond, and others it has now been definitely decided that the town shall remain tho depot for the 6th Bat- talion of the Welsh Regiment.

HEROES' CHILDREN. To Ensure a Summer Holiday. Among the few causes, legacies of the war, which are at present appealing to generous hearts in Swansea, there is none which has a stronger claim than the Children's Holiday Home Scheme of the Committee (formerly the 6th Welsh -Comforts Fund), of which Mr. Stanley Cook is the enthusiastic aud able chairman. That committee, which has so succes- fully arranged (and will again arrange this year) the great Christmas treat for children whose fathers have fallen in the country's cause, and grants to the widows, long since came to the conclu- ticn that the town owes these little ones more than those little festivals. It realises, as we must all realise, that to them, though the pensions are very ap- preciably higher than would have been dreamt of a few years ago, are denieu many of the little outings that are to- dav the prerogative of most children whose fathers earn good wages. The fortnights in Gower which 70, out of the many hundreds eligible, were able to spend last vear under pjeasant, homely conditions. llfi ve but increased the sense of need and Tevealed a big appreciation on the part of the little ones and their parents of the efforts made. The £ 5,000 asked for will provide for the Christmas treats and grants, and a home to which about 40 children can go each fortnight—the ones which the school head teachers and the M.O.ll. think would most benefit. And Mr. Stanley Cook is confident that the pri- vilege of helping so fine a cause will not be lost. Subscriptions should be sent to the hon. treasurer, Mr. Dd. Roberta, 61, Wind-street; or to the hon. secretary, Mr. J. D. Williams, "Cambria. Daily Leader," Swansea.
CARGO OF SARDINES. ) Foreign Seamen Charged With Theft. I Two foreign eeamen-a Spaniard and a I Swede—named Ramon Fernandez (27), Ii and Johan Helgi Ferdinand jansson (Zo) were charged on remand at Swansea on Thursday with being concerned together in stealing and receiving a case contain- ing 100 tins of sardines, value £5, from the s.s.

The captain of the ship stated that the boat arrived at Swansea on October 16th, but did not commence to discharge her cargo until October 27tli. The cargo con- tained a large quantity of eardines. On 1 ueaaay afternoon Jansson came to wit- ness and stated that be was the man who had taken the case of sardines. P.S. (29) Bill said he was on duty at St. Thomas, when he met delendant Fer- nandsz, who was carrying a bag. Wit- ness asked him what he had in the bag, and he replied: Tins of sardines whicn I had given to me by a Norwegian. On the way to the station defendant said: "i have not much money, but if you will let me go I will get you 12." Later defen- dant said he had bought them for 5d. a tin from a Norwegian, but had not paid for them. At the police, station witness found 11 tins of sardines in defendant's pockets, and 17 tins inside his shirt. There were 67 tins in the bag. Witness visited the s-V Barfond and saw JansSen.

He asked that his client be dealt with as a first offender. A fine of S5 was imposed on each de- fendant.

CAMERADERIE Mr. J. W. Jones' Appeal at Swansea CASE OF CONSUMP. TIVE SOLDIER. At the Guildhall, Swansea, on Thurs-, day, the sixth annual meeting of the' Association of Welsli Insurance Commit- tees was held under the presidency oi Mr. J. W. Jones, J.P. (Swansea). There was a very representative attendance, i and the delegates were officially welcomed by the Mayor (Coun. W. II. Miles) at- tended by tlie town clerk (Mr. H. Lang Coath). The Mayor epok of the importance of the work of the committees. Re extended a, hearty welcome to the visitors, and hoped tha.t their deliberations would be satisfactory to all. A letter was read from Mr. Thomas Richards, M.P., expressing regret at his inability to be p:esent to deliver a pro- mised address, and stuting that the Hev. Wm. Jenkins (Cymmer) had consented to take his place PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS. I I. .in me piesiaent'al aaaress Mr. J. W. Johes said the year had been pleasurably and profitable, the Association having done practical and helpful work through- out the year, and they were to be com- pliimented on devoting so much time and Attention to details. Moreover, the work had been on a hign level, because all the members had been before them the ideal of getting a strong nation of men and women. Mr. Jones referred to the work of the Welsh National Memorial Asso- ciation. In concluding, he referred to the dan- gers now threatening society. He said the spir't of thb day was too strongly t tinctured with disregard for wholesome restraint. More ^prit de "corps was re- quired, and the relations becween em- ployers 'and employed, and between classes and classes, and in this connection he suggested the rmulation of the example j of the Welsh Insurance Association. CONSUMPTIVE SOLDIERS. I In submitting the sixth annual report I Mr. J. E Towley (Montgomery) referred particularly to the lack of arrangements 'I for the treatment and ti-ainng of con- sumptive soldiers. The subject was brought up two years ago, and yet now the situation was so bad that it was ctuitc, I horrible to think of. One could hardly I realise tha.t men who had contracted the disease whilst serving their country had not been provided with consecut've treat- I..Qt and trai ning. It,, -ty .1 1 6 t' !w U u to deal wi? the in&? indnideally jj who understood thc'r pcsit.on prQPeJ.'ly: I Mr. Towley was moot dcnunciary of | the neglect of the State. He aa?d it was a etinking scandal that nothing had been done for these- p00 men. Now they were j left stranded, having lost their positions, j and not receiving concurrent training and j treatment from the State. Certain-ty they had peisions; but that would not! keep a man's 6p rit going when his occu- pation was gone. The matter had been j brought up long ago by War Pensions i Committees, the Association, and other j bodies, but even now, as far as effective operation went, n?th'?ig had been done. i A Rtrcng prote? wa? expressed against J the iinadequate representation of the i Welsh A&sociadon on the Consultative j Council ) DUTY OF STATE. i Addresses werv dehTendby JMr. J. W. i Morris (Merthyr). on The duty of the State fcowuds the dependants of tho.-e who J suffer from tuberculosis." and Dr. j Richard Harding on The compulsory I treatment of tuberculosis." Mr. Morris said that 70,000 people diecl, last year from tubprculos?, and thai j number was on the increase. It was true that some State scheme had been launched to deal with the dependants o?? I persons under treatment. Men were now afraid to let their employer know if they j were suffering from the disease, for fear j of endangering their positions. Men al,?- ?eft institutions before tfeatmen? wal J complete, on most trivial excuses, which, I however, only veiled thei r real reason, I ;hat of anxiety for the welfare of their dependants. Many men had died from I tuberculosis because they could not afford to live. COMPULSORY NOTIFICATION. I Dr. Harding urged that legislature should be passed allowing for severe punishments for failure to report cases of tuberculosis. The only way to fight the disease was to inaugurate a..scheme of compulsory treatment. Mr. D. W. Evans said that for the two years 1915-17 the cost of institutional treatment was 970,000, whereas tho L4 ",iut reoei ved from the in, LICA) Coin iflittees was £ 43,000, so that the 9d. per week as at present was not sufficient.. Counoillor G. Colwill, of Swansea, asked if compulsory treatment would stamp out the disease while they had such con- tlitions of living and housing as to-day. Mr. Harris, of Pontypool, thought that although he would like to see slums abolished they were no more conducive to'consumption than rural areae. It was absolutely necessary to bring in legisla- tion for isolation. The motion was seconded by Mr. H. Eynon Lewis. Dr. Harding, Llandrindod, was elected president for the ensuing year, Mr. Wm. George, Carnarvon, vice-president, and Mr. J. W. Morris, Merthyr, treasurer. l THE MAYOR'S LUNCHEON. The Mayor entertained the visitors to lunch at the Hotel Metropole in the in- terval.
