^sa-Rhonsda Free Church OounoiL At the monthly meeting of the above Council held at Bethania Vestry, Llwynypia, on Fri- day, evening', the 5th inf?t.. the Ilev. John Morgan presiding, a hearty welcome was extended to the Rev. llicliard Williams, the new minister of Trinity (C.M.) Church, Tonypan- dy, the Rev JVf. H. Ellis, Seion, Tre- alaw, and' Mr J. R.

I Wedged Between Trams. I The Cardiff City Coroner (Mr W. L. Yorath) held an inquest on Thurs- day, the 6th inst., on Joseph Grif- fiths (48), 31 Drown st., Ferndale, a collier employed 'at,' Messrs. Davis and Sons' colliery, Ferndale. Dd. Thomas said that on the morn- ing of November 18th he was talking to the deceased when the latter was ce,giialit" by a moving tram. To save himself deceased jumped on the shackle and as he did so the first tram of the journey jumped the rails. As a result deceased was wecl ged between two trams. When extricated lie was quite conscious and after first aid had been rendered he was removed to the Cardiff Infirmary. Medical evidence showed that deceased died on December 3rd and that death was due to fractured bladder and. pel- vis.' The Coroner gave his verdiet in agreement with the medical evi- dence.
I The Political Front. jtfy an M.P. POLITICAL OPPORTUNISM. I The unrest which I have previous- ly noticed in Parliament is on the increase, and during the last week Major Barnes has deserted the Coali- tion and has joined the Independent Liberals, whilst Major Christopher Lowther, a Unionist, has withdrawn his support from the Government on the grounds of their wasteful policy and political opportunism. The rea- sons for Major Lowtlier's decision are so similar to the views of the Na- tional Party that it will be interest- ing to see if he joins that body. Judging by the great meeting held at the Town Hall, Kensington, re- cently, the National Party is gaining a large measure of support. To get back to our muttons, the policy of opportunism which Major Lowther attacks-is having a serious effect on the power of the Coalition. for whilst alienating many friends I can see no signs that La bour is being placated and recent decisions are causing great unrest in business circles. COAL v. COALITION. I Two most amazing decisions have recently been arrived at by Mr Lloyd G;crge. The first is the sudden reduction of iiousehold coal by 10s. a ton after the recent rise of Gs. Now, although plain people were naturally amazed at these arithmetic acrobats we nat- urally hoped that the changed price was due to greatly increased output and consebiient cheapening of the price of domestic coal. Not a bit of it, for it appears that owing to the great demand for coal abroad our ex- port prices have risen enormously, and so the Government has takien the profits of our coal export trade, in order to give a bounty to domestic coal, for that is what it comes to. Now, I take the. earliest opportu- nity of saying that this principle is most vicious, and it is not difficult to show that such a juggling with in- dustry is likely to cause the gravest uncertainty I First, I state a fact when I say tl-iaf, our toal export trade is one of our most vital assets, and in these days when our imports are double our ex- ports, any exports should be encour- aged, providing the people of this country do not go short, and the higher the profits at the expense of the foreigner the better. These increasel profits appear to work out at X17,000,060 anticipated. Now that means at least X7,000,000 in revenue from income tax and super tax, yet in order to please the public thf-reveiiue is lost and the X17,000,000 goes to the reduction of domestic coal in order to keep the electors happy. But is this the way to encourage our export trade, and how long will it be before the pro- fits on cotton are taken to reduce the cost of the voters' tobacco ? It means that our Government is using war measures to interfere with the profits of industry, and the men who equipped the country with the means of exporting coal are deprived of the profit to which their industry and brains have" entitled them. I COAL PROFITS. I The even more amazing decision to reduce coal profits to Is. 2d. per ton is likely to produce a fierce battle over a great principle. The figure named works out at about half the pre-war profits on coal, and the tax- payer may well ask what the coal in- dustry has done to be selected for this special persecution. It is a well-kiiow-n fact that the, railways and mines of this country, which have been built up by priTate I enterprise, are perhaps the two in- dustries which taken as a whole over1 a period of say thirty years, have shown the smallest profits and yet because Mr Smillie and Mr. Thomas have powerful organisations behind them, the Prime Minister seems to j' be bent on reducing those industries to impotence, I Presumably, he will then step in and nationalise them aiter forcing their value down to about one-half of the pre-war level. Now is any man going to be such a fool as to in- vest his money in coal mines with all the risk and uncertainty when the return on his money will be about one-half of that which he could get in any other industry ? Tf this policy is carried out there can be only one result, namely, the killing of all enterprise and the absolute cessation of developments of coal mines. In all conscience the State has done enough mischief, and it is time Parliament put its super men in a padded room. WASTE. I Grave reports come to me of the incompetence of the Disposal's Board which is the off-spring of the Minis- try of Munitions. I hear of Con- trollers in this Department being turned on to dispose of material valued at millions sterling, who are endowed with no business training, and who have been suddenly pro- moted from minor posts in other de- partents. The result must be a ter- rible loss to the taxpayers. I even hear that the Ministry of Munitions never took steps to recover the value of packing cases, which is estimated at anything between 17,000,000 and 114,000,000. The public has a right to kiirow where this valua ble material has gone, and the time has come when a public enquiry should be held into the hopeless confusion of this State control, which is a forecast of the perils of Nationalisation. LADY ASTOR. I The coming of a woman to Parlia- ment is naturally an event which has set us all talking, and Lady Astor will receive a courteous welcome to which she is entitled for her pluck and abaility. Having said that, I must record my regret that the first woman to take her seat should be one who so recently has become British. I admit that the blame should be j placed on the shoulders of Plymouth Unionists who selected her and in no way upon her shoulders, but this does not alter the fact that no one can feel quite the same a bout British traditions, hopes, and aspirations, who is not bone of our bone and born of our blood. I trus+ that Parliament will soon make it impossilie for! foreign born subjects to decide the fate of the British.

Dear Sir,—I am very pleased to write to you concerning your Virol, as when my baby was born we never thought he would live but a friend of mine advised meto go to the Infants' Welfare, Soho Rd. I took him when one month old and the Doctor ordered Virol. With careful attention, and Virol added regularly with his food, I am sure it has proved very successful, as you see from his photo- graph. Wishing your Virol every success. Yours gratefully, (Signed) (Mrs.) E. Walker. Virol is used in large Quantities in more than 2,000 Hospitals and Infant Clinics. It is invaluable for the expectant and nursing mother herself, whilst for chil- dren it supplies those vital principles that are destroyed in the sterilising of milk; it is also a bone and tissue-building food of immense value. Virol babies have firm flesh strong bones and good colour. VIROL In Glass and Stone Jars, 11,1/10 & 8/3. Ylrol, Ltd., 148-165, Old St., London, E.C.I BRITISH MADE. BRITISH OWNED.
