Water For Christ Church Organ j
Water For |Christ Church Organ, A MILLION GALLONS A YEAR. The Mayor (Mr John Lewis) presided at a meeting of teh Carmarthen Corporation on Wednesday evening. There wer also present: Messrs L. D. Thomas, D. J. Davies, J. Jenkins, | E. Collier, T. Davies, D. Wiliiams, J. Cross- man, and AY. Spurroll. The Surveyor said that some time ago the Corporation had provided a supply of water to Christ Church for the purpose of blowing the organ. At first it was decided to supply the water by meter; but it was afterwards arranged to charge £12 a year. In consequence of something he was told and of observations made he had inspected the meter. He found that for 115 weeks the unntity of water used was 2,028.000 gallons. This worked out at the rate of 17,000 gallons a week for the whole period. At the rate of Is per 1,000 gallons, the Corporation should have been paid ;£>13 a year for the water used at Christ Church. Mr Dd. Williams said that it would be better for them to have an electric motor to blow the organ. The Mayor said that they had two members of Christ Church present at that meeting. Perhaps these gentlemen could tell them some thing. Both Mr Crossman and Mr Collier said that they knew nothing of it. The Surveyor said that the quantity of water used was three or four or five times the quan- tity roallv required for the organ, even if practices were held every day. Mr L. D. Thomas said that the only thing was for some member to place a notice oil the agenda and have the matter discussed at the next meeting. Mr Crossman said that the order had been given to get an electric motor for the organ. Mr E. Collier said that there were Sundays when they did not want it. They had decided they could not get water to work the organ. At other times water was running to waste when hey did not want it. They had decided at length to go in for an electric apparatus. It was suggested that the Water Inspector call at intervals to seo if the water was runn- ing to Mr Page had also been buried there in a letter be sent to the Vicar on the subject. Both these suggestions apparently were agreed to. SHAN'T LEND THE STEAM ROLLER. A letter was read from the Vale of Towy Granite Co. asking for the loan of the Cor- pora,tion steam roller to level a road in the neighbourhood of Johnstown. Tho Mayor: This road is in a very bad state. If we send the roller to this road at all. we shall have to charge. Mr David Williams If our steam roller does any damage when it is working here or if any damage is done to our steam roller who is to pay? The Mayor: The Council. Mr David Williams > AVo nearly came into court with Major Evans about some damage to i his ga,te. The Town Clerk: He threatened proceedings The Surveyor said that the lane in question was a very narrow one. There is a deep ditch which had been filled up to widen the road. He had stated when application was made to him verbally that the steam roller could not be spared now; but that it might be spared later on if the Council were willing. Mr J. Jenkins: What they want to do, I suppose, is to consolidate that ditch. Mr L. D. Thomas said that the road was not wanted to be mended to supply stones for the town, but to haul timber. The Council had re- cently spent a good deal of money on repairing the steam roller, and he did not think they ought to lend it and run the risk of getting it damaged again. Mr Crossman: Suppose we agree to lend it and state that we expect them to pay for the damage. Mr L. D. Thomas If anything happens, it will be a very difficult question who is respon- sible. Mr D. J. Davies Counsel's opinion again. Mr D. Williams: I propose that we roply: that we can't spare it. The Mayor Wouldn't you send a small com- niittee to see ? Mr D. J. Davies seconded the proposition of Mr David AVilliams, which was agreed to. DEARTH AND BURIAL OF A HORSE. The Surveyor said that a question had been asked at a previous meeting about the burial of horses at the manure heaps. Some two or three weeks ago a horse belonging to Mr AVilliams, of Blue street, had been buried there with the permission of the Sanitary Inspector. The horse had been buried in lime at the depth required by the regulations. A horse belong- ingto Mr Page had also been buried there in accordance with the regulations. Mr David Williams said that when he asked the question at the previous meeting no one seemed to know anything about it. The In- spector of the R.S.P.C.A. had shot a horse and it was left there. The Surveyor: The Inspector of Nuisances was there when the horse was shot. Mr David Williams: The Sanitary Inspector knew nothing of the case when it was men- i tioned at the meeting. The Surveyor said that the case occurred some time before the moating, and the Sani- tary Inspector thought that Mr AVilliams was referring to a more recent case. Mr W. Evans: What is the good of shooting them if you don't bury them properly. The Mayor: AVe had better have the ques- tion up at the next Sanitary meeting.

Llandilo Secretary. XQ RELEASE FROA1 BRIXTON PRISON YET. Air Justice Sergeant, in the Vacation Court on AVednesday, heard an application made on behalf of Mr Herbert Jones, late secretary of the Llandilo and District Cuttle 3Larket and Auction Mart, Ltd. Through not complying with the order of Mr Verey, official referee, Mr Jones had been committed to Brixton Prison for alleged contempt of Court, and counsel (Mr Bray), now applied for his client's discharge. Counsel for the defendant said this was an adjourned motion for the relea.se of his client from custody. The arrangement was that the books should he taken to the defendant at the prison, and Air Jones had now made the best account that lie could, and although the com- pany took exception to it, counsel asked for the release of Air Jones, who had apologised to the Court, and had sworn that all the money he had received had been paid into the account of the company. Exception was taken to the account in respect of certain items on the re- ceipt side marked "Outstanding Accounts." Defendant had said that the accounts had got into a muddle because he had not had assist- a nee and had been overworked, and ho was not now able to say from whom certain sums had been received. He had, however, supplied names to the best of his ability. Air Justice Sargaut, giving his decision, said it was quite impossible to make an order for the release of the defendant under the circumstances. The account he had made was perfectly worthless. His Lordship said he would make no order except that the defen- dant pay the costs of the application. Air Bray Will your Lordship adjourn the application. The Judge: I think he should make another application, and that he should not make it in too great a hurry.
The Churches. The Rev T. F. Joseph, Ebbw Vale. has been appointed chaplain to a AVelsh Division. Air Joseph is a native of Llandyssul, and is one of four brothers in the Congregational ministry. The numerous friends of the rev. gentleman in Carmarthen congratulate him on his appoint- ment. • ttft Meetings were held last week to celebrate the close of 50 years ministry of the Rev John Davies. at Glynartben. The ministers en- gaged for the occasion were the Rev E. Iverri Evans, M.A., and the Rev Elvet Lewis. M.A. The services were well attended and comprised the majority of the members of all the churches in South Cardiganshire, together with a thick sprinkling of visitors and officers of the counties adjoining. The preachers were in excellent form and delivered the message with force and effect in every service. There is at present a splendid building for worship- ing at Glynarthen, newly built and nicely fur- nished, and supplied with every modern con- venience available, including heating appara- tus. acetylene gas, schoolroom and classrooms, and a small library. AVo wish Air Davies a long evening to complete his ministry in the new century. «*# Last Thursday evening an address was pre- sested to the Rev Isaac Thomas. Ferryside, by Bethania CM. Church. The chair was occupied by the Rev D. Geler Owen, assisted and sup- ported by all the officers of thechurch and also the deacons and by the ministers of the dis- trict. The President in hi* homely way explained the obeet of the meeting and the merits of Mr Thomas which demanded this public recogni- tion of respect and obligation for services re- flecting the best and noblest qualities that belong to the best men and leaders of men of evrey age in Church and State. Mr Thomas, he remarked, has been a great worker, and his whole life has been a mass of energy, activity and usefulness, altruism and self-denial from first to last. He then summarised his wo 1, and dwelt brieflly upon those that benefitted his race and denomination and then mentioned with special emphasis his praiseworthy acts at Ferryside and his magnificent help to Bethanii C.M. Church in town. In conclusion he added that the church was to be praised for honour- ing one to whom honour was due—one that really deserved such respect on the score of good labour in the capacity of a minister, lecturer, and pastor for a whole generation-- which was confirmed by results. "Ye know them by their fruit." The addre s was then presented by the senior officr. Mrs Evans, Ystrad, on behalf of the church, on which was summarised his rich en- dowments and his rare attainments, which have now produced a big harvest which reveals that he had the power for taking pains and perseverance, the key of every success which surmounts every difficulty. Mr Thomas replied very appropriately in his own humorous racy style, and with a feeling and gratitude that cannot be adequately ex- pressed on paper. The Chairman afterwards called upon the Rev W. D. Rowlwands and others, the officers of the church and of other churches that were present to address te meeting, who all con- cur rod with the statements made, and wished Air Thomas a peaceful pleasant evening to enjoy his reward H> well earned and so well deserved. The Rev J. B. Thomas, Old College School, concluded with some appropriate lines in Welsh. Between the addresses the following artists rendered solos to the great delight and plea- sure of the audience: Miss AVinnie Stepens, Mr Willi Jones, Rotten Pill Mr Vincent Davies, Paregwyn. The children's choir, under the able olductorship of Mr D. Harries, also sang selections. A vote of thanks to the chairman I te-rminated the proceedings. It has been reported, although not officially announced, that the Rev J. Timothy Davies, Old College School, a native of Alyddfai, has just received an invitation to the pastorate of the C.M. Church at Kenfig Hill. It was re- ported in this column that lie had received a call from Caersalem some time ago. Herman, Pontardulais, have also approached him.

HARVEST IN THE BATTLE ZONE
HARVEST IN THE BATTLE ZONE. By means of the binder twine which English farmers, through the medium of the Agricul- tural Relief of Allies Fund, sent to them, the French farmers near the battle zone have been nabled to secure their harvst. The French Ministry have intimated that the material arrived at a moment when the scarcity of French supplies was beginning to be most seriously felt, and the local authorities of the districts to which the twine was consigned have passed resolutions of warm thanks. The Dltke of Portland's Committee at 16, Bedford Square. London, seeks the continued support of British farmers in the organisation of agri- cultural gift sales so that practical and timely help may be offered eventually in all invaded countries of our Allies.

The Welsh Division in the Somme Battle
The Welsh Division in the Somme Battle. Major-General Ivor Phillips, D.S.O., LP., has returned to Coslieston Hall. PeiJforokeshire, after nine months service in the battle line in France, culminating in the advance on the Somme. During that period General Philippa was in command of troops raised is the Princi- pality. General Philipps, who appeared to have stood the rigours of the campaign extremely well, said that his services were now, as they always have been, entirely at the service of his country. In the immediate future he pro- posed to devote more time to his Parliamentary duties, an dalso to give closer attention to his work as chairman of the Pembrokeshire Coun- ty Council unless his services were again re- quired qby the Army. Referring to the AVelsh Division, he said he thought everyone in Wales should be proud of this fin-e body of men who had acquitted them- selves splendidly in the battle of the Somme, during eight days of which he was present.

Pembrokeshire Harvest. IX DANGER FOR LACK OF AI EN. The extent to which men engaged in agri- cultural work in the county of Pembroke have been called up by the military authorities was discussed at a mooting of the Pembrokeshire War Agricultural Committee at Haverfordwest on AVednesday, and it was decided to make strong representations to the Board of Agri- culture in a number of cases. In one'cr two cases the last available efficient man had been called up, and no one was left capable of ,running the farms. In two other cases owners of threshing machiens had unsuc- cessfully appealed for their men, with the re- sult that some of the machines would have to lie idle unless the men were returned. It w.,ig pointed out that there were not enough- machines in the county if all were kept going,. and that thusands of pounds worth of corn was spoiled every year as a consequence, and that even now one machine was engaged on last year's corn. It was urged that the going of all these machines was a matter of vital importance to the State and tht if any were laid up it would result in enormous loss of this year's crop. It was decided to ask the Board of Agricul- ture to get tho necessary men returned for the completion of the threshing season.
