SUFFRAGE NOTES I
SUFFRAGE NOTES. (Specially written for the Express.") I One of the most noteworthy events, in the Suffrage world was the recent demonstration, in Hyde Park, of all the religious leagues. The Church League also arranged a procession from the Embankment, through some of the main, centres such as Kinggway, Holborn, and Oxford street, to the place of meeting. A very interested and on the whole sympathe- tic crowd watched the marchers, while in the Park itself, each of the six platforms were surrounded by a large audience. Jews, Prionds, Catholics, Anglicans, Free Church men. and women, Scottish Church men and Women, all were there, and the demonstra- tion was a striking display of unity, as well as of the power of the suffrage cause. The resolution calling upon the Government to bring forward at once IS, measure for women s enfranchisement was passed almost unanim- ously. Another important gathering was that of the London Society of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies, to inaugurate a grea-t Metropolitan Fund. Lady Frances Balfour was in the chair, and the speakers w,or(, Mrs Henry Fawcett Mrs Sidney Webb, the Bishop of Kensington, and Mrs Hood of the Women's Co-operative Guild. Some hun- dreds of pounds were promised, the number of promises sent up, being so great, that ow- ing to pressure of time the treasurer had to stop reading the list of donations while only half-way through. Perhaps the most rousing speech was that by the Bishop of Kensington who spoke of the tremendous moral need for Women's enfranchisement. He said he knew it was because women realised this meed, both for women themselves, and also, and particularly so, for children, 1Jha.t they asked for the vote with so much passion, and so much earnest- ness. „ A resolution demanding a (jrovernmen measures was passed unanimously. The question of women police has been much discussed lately. In Germany and America there are several women doing police work in the large cities, and a. beginning has been made in two towns in England, by the appointment of women to help the police in dealing with cases where women and children are concerned. At a public conference arrang- ed by the Criminal Law Amendment Com- mittee, at Caxton Hall, it was strongly urged that there should be further development of women's work in this connection. The official attitude of the Churches to women's suffrage, though changing, still loaves much to be desired. A splendid lead has however, been given for, from the Presidential Chair of the Primitive Methodist Conference, held at Middlesborough, a definite pronounce- ment beiing made in favtour of the movement. In the course of his Presidential Address,, the Rev. George Bennett said. We need women in our fight with the drink traffic, and in securing all our social ideals. She can ar(mse the nation's passion against white slav- ery and war. All who fight for the nations weal will receive a mighty reinforcement when the womanhood of the nation is per- mitted to march to the ballot box."

1500 Strike Notices
1,500 Strike Notices. TROUBLE IN HEREFORDSHIRE. The dispute between the Herefordshire ag- ricultural labourers and the farmers is com- ing to a head, the ranks of the Workers' Un- ion being increased almost daily. Two years ago the men were unorganised. Now, owing to the efforts of an agricultural labourer, Sidney Box by name, they aire a force to be reckoned with. Sidney Box is now secretary for Herefordshire. On Saturday nearly 1,500 notices were sent in to the farmers. The alternative to a strike is better pay and better hours of work including a half-holiday. This is only the first batcih of notices; others will be forward- ed in case the farmers still hold out. Some fair mens have declared they will risk their harvest rather than recognise the Union. The last two harvests have been none too good. It now seems that tihe Union is not troubling so much about official recognition, Where farmers are treating their men well no effort will be made to call them out." "It is the sweaters we are against," declares Mr Box.
HIRWAIN. I Wounding.—A charge against Thomas Dav- ies, of Trecynon, of wounding hole brother, Richard John Davies, of Hirwain, came be- fore the Aberdare Bench on Wednesday. At the last hearing Rd. JoQiin Dlavies stated that a wound in his back was caused by a broken sauce bottle on which he fell in a struggle with his brother. Wm. Davies, another bro- ther, staited that he was in the house on Jurle 30th, when Richard John started teasing Thomas's wife, and Thomas told him to Stop it." Richard John took hold of Thom- as. and they fell to the floor. Replying to the Clerk, witness said that his brothers were I not fighting, and there was nothing in Thorn- I as' hand.—The Clerk: How was the injury in- the broken bottle, sir.—The Bench, at this stage, decided to discharge the defendant, and the Chairman, Mr D. P. Davies, remarfked, "Don't struggle in the house again."

Builth's Bridge. I Road Board's Contribution. I RECOMMEfNDATION TO COUNTY I COUNCIL. At the Radnorshire Main Roads and Bridges Committee on Friday, a letter from the Roads Board stated that they had inform- ed the Breconshire County Council that they would miaike a grant of 50 per oent. towards the cost of improving; and widening Builth Wells Bridge, viz., JE860, the total estimated cost beine £ 1.700. The Clerk to the Breconshire Council wrote that this letter from the Roads Board had been considered by the Roads and Bridges Committee, when the Builth representatives urged that the work should be done in stone, and not in feenro-concreite as intended. Un- less this was done, they stated that there would he no contribution made by the Builth people towards the cost. His committee re- commended that plans amd estimates for doing the work in stone be made out, in addition to those for ferro-concrete. As far as his com- mittee were concerned: they had no objection to stone being used, providing the same re- sults could be arrived at without extra cost to either the Brtconshire or Radnorshire Cbunty Councils. Oaptain Gibson Watt said the Builth peo- ple were anxious to 'have their stome bridge, and if the work was done in stone, it would probafly mean that the Builth people would meet the extra cost. Mr B. P. Lewis said it was a pity that the Builth people did not make up their minds before. Aid. E. Bufton said that one of the Builth Councillors had to'ld him that Mr Lant would supply tine stone at tine same cost as ierro- concfrete. Mr Baclhe pointed out that one of the con- ditions was that the Builth people should contribute JE200, and that would leave them and the Breconshire County Council each to find £325. Mr J. O. Bufton failed to see Why they should fix their portion of the expenditure be- fore ttLey knew what the Builth people would contribute. Mr B. P. Lewis corroborated Mr Badhe's statement, observing that they selected the best scheme on condition the Builth people found £ 200. Mr W. Green-Price proposed that they re- commend their Council to contribute not more than zC325 towards the widening, etc., of Builth Bridge, a.nd this was seconded and carried.

THE ANTIQUITIES OF BEULAH
THE ANTIQUITIES OF BEULAH I Visit of Builth Naturalists. I (By "Lika Joko. ") Since I came into the district of Chintref Buallt I have always been in love with this little beauty spot.. I knew many English types of beautiful villages, but Beulah is a type apart. The place-name is a wee bit curious. I inquired into it on Saturday, and find that the beautiful Welsh word Bryn- gwyn was tlhe original name. I should have to re-furbish my Scripture knowledge to trace out the Biblical affinities. Suffice it to say that this land of Beulah is a beauty sipot, amd surrounded by hills. The people of Beulah aire kindly and intelligent, and are keenly alive to the advantages of good edu- cation. I heard Sir William Parsons, of turbine fame, oncie remark at the village eisteddfod "that tlie literary efforts of some of the young peojpSe would not discredit the work of the 6th form public school boy." Sbme of us cycled to Beulah on Saturday, some motored1, but the main section went by brake. Cribyn. I The cyclists, arriving before the others, must needs climb Otribyn, thus departing somewhat from the official programme of tihe day. Cribyn is only half the height of Penyfan, but compared with it the latter is merely a pulmonary teaser. Penyfan, the g)!ory of the Beacons, is merely a long, up- hill drag; Cribyn is a veritable cilimb, a fit preliminary for those who have designs on Slcafell, or the heights of Eryri. Length and breadth are good English words why not "stepith"! For sheer "stepth" Cribyn oooupies pride of place among the mountain glories of Brychedniog. On its slopes there is a dear little homestead called Dolberthog, where the snowy sheep had just been shorn. Their plaintive bleats blended musically with the sibilant swish of Cammardh in the gorge below. Before negotiating the almost perpendicular bluffs we turned round to "normalize" our pulses. Riight opposite is the pine-flanked Garn Wen, on the other side of which is Llwynmadoc, the home of Miss Thomas. wh ose death has cast a shadow over tihe countryside around. There is a not- ed old quarry above the turn called Pencen- lan, where there are good workable slates. Miss Thomas was a great lover of these mountains. She was also a keen nature- student, and once gently reproached some Beulah boys who had never climbed Cribyn. From the crest the Drygarin looked strange- ly near, although it is really five miles away. Its charms have been suitably vaun- ted in verse by John Lloyd, of Dinas, in a noble poem Which deserves to be better known. The oarn-cap
TALISDDU BRIDGE. County Committee's Decision. COUNCILLOR T DAVIES ADVOCACY. At the Radnorshire Main Roads and Bridges Committee on Friday the Roads Board, writ- ing with reference to an application from the Colwyn Distridt Council for an increased grant for building a bridge over the Edw, assumed that this was in substitution of their previous proposals to divert Talisddu Ford Road, and for which the Board 'had made a grant of £69. If so, they asked that grant be returned, and the amount of the new grant would be settled later, after the Board knew whether the County Council would take- the Bridge over. Mr Thomas Da-vies moved they take over the bridge, as they now had four other bridges over this river, and, moreover, they bad no main roads to maintain in that parish. It seemed that the grant would be given on the condition that they took over the bridge. Mr J. Hamer thought they could hardly accept the motion straight away. They had increased their first offer of £ 50 to £ 80, and now to be asked to maintain this bridge in future, vreal, it was rather a tall order. He- proposed that they do not take over the- bridge. Mr T. Davie And that means that we get no cratfit. Mr Hamer: That might be, but we canniot have SJ11 these new things being put on to us all the time. Mr T. Davies expressed the hope that the- Committee would roaommend the County Council to take over the bridge. Mr Hamer pointed out that the Rhayader- District Council had erected four or five new bridges at their own expense, and that they stiill maintained them. If Mr Davies' motion. was to be followed out. he thought the Rhaya- der people should ask for some of these bridges to be tiak-en over m the future. The Chairman thought it advisable to take- over the bridge, under oonsideration, in order to get the grant from the Roads Board, but he was of opinion, that the Oolwyn R.D.O. should accept a smaller grant than £ 80 from the County Council. Should they reduoo the- grant baek- to £ 50 ? Ald. Bufton suggested L60. Mr T. Davies: t30 is not much for the county. I believe if this committee sees the real necessity of it, my motion will be car- ried. I think that the people in that portion of tihe county think it is only reasonable, and then there would be no occasion to rescind the resolution which increased the grant from. jEoO to £ 80.—Mr T. L. Vaugjhaii seconded. Mr J. Hiamer proposed: that the bridge be- not taken over under present conditions or unless the Rhayader bridges were taken over in the same way. There they had put up five- and had .not asked for one single penny from the county. If the County Council were now going to subscribe JE80 ajid take this bridge over, he did not think it was fair to those re- siding in the Rhayader Union. Ald. J. Price seconded, and the amendment was carried. Mr Bache tbeoi proposed, and the Chairman seconded, that the grant be reduced to £50' and that they take over the bridge, and this wais agreed to. Mr Bache to Mr T. Davies: I tbiÍnk you have got on very weOl indeed.
