AMMANFORD INSURANCE. THEATRE EMPLOYEES' CARDS. At Ammanford on Monday, Oscar Mills was defendant in seven sum- monses brought by the Welsh Insur- ance Commissioners for failing to pay contributions under Part 1. of the National Insurance Act in respect of employee contributors. Mr Haydn Jones, Cardiff, said he appeared on: tehalf of the Welsh In- surance Commissioners in support of these summonses issued against Mr. Oscar Mills, who formerly carried on business at the New Palace Theatre, Ammanford. The case was a serious one, and one in. which a substantial penalty should be imposed. Mr Mills would probably teN them that the duty of stamping the cards was im- posed by him upon the conductor in respect of the orchestra, but the con- ductor, Mr F. W. Mann, who was pre- sent from Haverfordwest to give evi- dence, would say that out of his own pocket he paid the contributions of some of the mem bers of the orchestra, but his own card was not stamped for the last three weeks of the last half- year ending December, 1914, and for the last two we-eks of this year. Wm. Lawler, a member of the orchestra, had the last three weeks' contributions Mr. Mills had also not paid wages. There was due in regard to Rose Sn4ith lis, F. W. Miann 2s. lid, Olwen Prosser Is. Gd, William Lawler Is. 2d, Gilbert Copley Is. 9d, and Harry Barber 4s. Id and 5s. lOd. Mr. Oscar Mills, who pleaded guilty said he had never seen the cards, He left the matter to his manager, and had no complaint from anyone of the staff that they had not had their cards stamped. As regarded Mr. Mann lie was a subordinate to the manager, and it was the manager who left him the stamping of the cards of the mem- bers of the orchestra. He was willing to pay the contributions. The magistrates imposed a fine of 10s. in each of the seven cases, and made an order for the payment of the contributions and costs. To plead ignorance did not relieve the defen- dannt of his liability under the Act.

CARLTON CINEMA SWANSEA I
CARLTON CINEMA, SWANSEA. I HOLIDAY PROGRAMMES. I The last three times of showing what is justly described by "The Times" as "Britain's greatest film" "Bajmaby Rudge" are 2.30, 5.15, and 8 o'clock on Saturday. To miss this production is to miss a rare treat. It is said to have cost R6,000 to produce, and we can well believe it, as everything con- nected with it is on a most lavish scale. Hepworth's Picture Play Co. who are responsible for this gigantic Dicken's masterpiece employed no less than 1,500 people to take part in it. On Easter Monday and Tuesday, the performances will commence at 12 noon, and the pictures will be shown continuouosly until 10.30 each day,- each round of pictures lasting about hours. The "bright particular star" in an exceptionally good pro-i gramme is the clever and dainty Italian actress, Francesca, Bertini, in a wonderful rendering of the title rele, "Woman." Selig's wild animal picture, "Lasso- ing a Lion," is full of excitement and thrills. Comedy is well represented by "Keystone, "Joker," and "Edison" films, specially selected for their mirth- producing qualities. Pathe's Animated Gazette will give news from all parts, and "The Carlton Film News," a num- ber of interesting topical pictures in- cluding "Drum-Head service in Vic- toria Park, Swansea, on Palm Sunday" and "Swansea Battalion, at Rhyl." The prices of admission have not been altered in any way, they will be as usual, 3d., 6d., 9d., and Is. To avoid the holiday rush, we would ad- vise our readers to secure their seats at the opening at 12 o clock or during the early afternoon.
I DULAIS VALLEY CHATI
I DULAIS VALLEY CHAT. I I REHEARSAL. I I A rehearsal for the forthcoming cy- manfa ganu was held at Soar on Sun- day last, when the singing proved to be of a very high order. Mr Dan Davies, A.T!S.C., a local conductor, lead the choir, and all present were agreeably surprised at the able manner II in which the conducted. Tunes composed by local composers were very well tunes written by Messrs David J. Phillips, Tommy Harris, and Wm. George, Ystalyfera, being well rendered. The words to Mr David J. Phillips' hymn-tune, "Garn Wen," were written by Toriel. The tune composed by Mr Wm. George was written during his recent stay at Swansea Hospital, and was dedicated to Nurse Thomas, of Seven Sisters. Mr Reas Harries spoke at the after- noon service, and Toriel spoke at t,he evening meeting. Many people from the other denominations expressed their appreciation of the singing. The I Cymanfa will be. held on April 25th. The choir is to be trained by Mr D. W. Morgan, G. and L., of Cray. while Mr Davies will conduct at the festival. 1RECRUITING MEETING. I A recruiting meeting was held at Seven Sisters on Monday evening, when Mr Hugh Edwards, M.P., was the chief speaker. The chair was occu- pied by Mr J. W Thomas, school- master. Mr Edwards made an elo- quent appeal to the young men present to join their fellow countrymen on the fields of Flanders. Mr Edwards also complimented the people of Dulais on their fine recruiting returns. Three young men, Messrs. Hy. Moralee, John Morgan, and Patrick Driscoll, joined before the meeting, but no one came forward at the end. It is interesting to note the wages of men who have enlisted can be de- manded immediately. Mr D. W. Thomas, the manager of the Seven Sisters pit, refused to pay the wages of three men who asked for their pay on this account, on Monday without positive evidence that they had en- listed, as some men wore taking ad- vantage of the recruiting to leave the colliery without notice. 'The officer promptly went to get evidence, and in a few minutes returned with governmental papers demanding the money. These had been given him by Mrs. Prosser in the absence of Mr Wm. Prosser. The manager, needless to say, immediately complied with the demand. I TRADES AND LABOUR COUNCIL. I A meeting under the Trades and Labour Council took place at Crynant on Thursday last, when Mr J. J. JamiDs. agent of the Anthracite miners addressed the meeting. There was a large attendance, and the meeting was a. most successful one. Mr George I Jones occupied the chair. I ACCIDENT AT COLLIERY. I Mr Wm. Miles, Standard terrace, re- ceived fairly serious injuries to his head on Monday, whilst following his employment at the pit. We are pleased however, to state that Mr Miles is on I the road to recovery. I COLLIERY COMMITTEE. i A case at the local colliery is being watched with much interest. The question as to whether a "billy-check" is eligible for a seat on committee, has again been raised, owing to Mr Bevan having refused permission to Mr SI. Evans to appear with the colliery com- mittee. Mr Morrell, miners' agent of the Abercynon district has written to Mr Bevan on tbe,-matt-or, but so far, he has received no reply. The matter of "billy check" has previously been before the Conciliation Board. COAL FOR NEATH MEN. I Mr Bevan has kindly allowed the men employed at the colliery, and re- siding at Neath, house-ooal at the same price as it is now supplied to the local colliers. Mr Bevan conceded the request without any discussion. ILLNESS I Wo sincerely regret to state, that it has been deemed necessary to take Mrs. Thomas, wife of Mr D. W. Thomas, M. E., manager of Seven Sisters, to the private hospital of Dr. Brooks on Tuesday, to undergo an operation. It is hoped that Mrs. Thomas will have a speedy recovery. Miss Thomas, daughter of Mr and Mrs. Thomas, whois now at Pembroke Dock, as a cookery mistress, wrote home, and said that the wounded sold- iers from the front are being received at Milford Haven. Miss Thomas is very anxious to join the Red Cross Society. I MEETING AT NEATH. I A great many youno, men journeyed to Neath from the Valley on Monday night, when Mr A. Fenner Brockway, editor of the "Labour Leader," ad- dressed a meeting at the Waverly Hotel, Neath, under the auspices of the local I.L.P.. on "The Diplomatic War." The address was very much enjoyed by those present. Bombardier Bert Greenslade, is now heme on leave, and is spending his brief rest in recruiting in the district. A social and concert, as announced in our last issue, will be held at Salem Chapel to-inght (Thursday). It is an- ticipated that the event will be a com- plete success, M. Darrone, a Belgian refugee, who was traced by the local committee, and who has been on active service in the Congo, has now sufficiently recovered from his recent illness, following upon an attack of ague, to start work at the local colliery on Wednesday. Mr F. L. Davies, M.E., has been appointed manager at the Dulais An- thracite colliery, where he commenced duties on Tuesday. A roll of honour for the Dulais col- liery is being formed, and arrange- ments are in the hands of Mr W. T. I Davies, of Garden City. I The inspector of weights and measures was at the Seven Sistepp pit last week, and treated Mr Evan "Lloyd to a full exp l ina- the "billy" weigher, to a full explana- tion of the weighing apparatus. Lloyd is now eonfident that he knows enough to act as an inspector himself. The small coal at the colliery is now rapidly being cleared from the sidings. It is announced that Mr Bert Green, fitter at the Dulais Colliery, is t.4b. married to Miss Davies, Onllwvn, on Easter Tuesday. The Dulais workmen have decided to t-ake advantage of the judgment of Judge Bryn Roberts recently given at Bridgend, to the effect that workmen should be allowed to fill thro' ooal. ■i» ————

Edwards, of Coelbren, officiating. The child of Jochin Dies, a Portugese, residing at International huts, died sud- denly on Monday. An inquest was held at the Caehopkin Vestry on Tuesday, when a verdict of "Death from- natural causes" was returned. The interment took place on Thursday at St. David's Church. Th. child of Edward Jay, of Davies- street, passed away on Friday. The in- terment took place at the local church on Wednesday. Seven of the houses at Coelbren are now occupied. The contractor stopped work on Monday owing to a dispute be- tween himself and the Council. The work haa made good progress, and it is hoped that there will be an amicable settlement. The pulpit at Nantyffin was occupied on Sunday by the Rev. Chas. Davies. of Cardiff. The building was overcrowded, many people having journeyed long dis- tances to the services. The preaching was very much enjoyed. The Rev. Mr. Thomas, late of Trefecca College, and now of ennybridge, preached at Carmel on Sunday, and his sermons were also very much appreciated. A rehearsal was held at Bryn Seion on Sunday, when Mr. R. J. Lewis con- ducted the singing.

The Abercrave mixed team will play the Ystalyfera Mixed on Saturday next. a —————
