Mr, W. J. Thomas, the select coun-'
cilmnn from the Fourth ward, Is now
the lust survivor of the terrible acci
dent that occurred on the twenty-llrst
day of March, 1S6S. It will ho remem
bered that seventeen robust miners left
their happy homes, on that memorable
morning, little thinking that the ma
jority of them were then wending their
way to their llnal goal on earth. They
reached the head of the shaft between
sl and seven o'clock In the morning,
and a few minutes later entered the
carriage in buoyant spirits. The en
gineer signalled the footman, who was
stationed at the foot of the shaTt, that
the carriage was being lowered, and It
was started downward on Its ill-fated
course, on tb a depth of one hundred
nnd eighty feet below the surface.
Alas! before' they had descended many
feet one of the links of the main chain
of the rope to which the carrluge was
attached broke, and seventeen noble
Bouls wen; hurled to the bottom with
the velocity of an unbi idled cyclone
The men realized their perilous position
at once; they know that they were de-
"W. J. THOMAS.
Fcending at a furious speed. They were
powerless and nothing could be done.
They prepared themselves the best
they could to meet the frightful inevit
able. It came with a tremendous crash
that could be heard all over the mines
a crash that shattered the happy
homes of thirteen brave miners, and
made fatherless) many little innocent
souls. It was a heartrending scene.
"When assistance came to the rescue,
It w.s discovered that several souls
had already taken illght to their eter
nal homes, and while the thirteenth
was conveyed to his home his soul also
took its final farewell. Only four were
left to tell the frightful tale W. J.
Thomas, the present honest and able
select councilman from the Fourth
ward; Ilosle Davies, who died several
years afterwards, and John G. Jones
and Owen Huggerly, both of whom died
recently, thus leaving Mr. Thomas the'
only survivor of the terrible catastro
phe. These four unfortunate men were
badly shattered anl were incapacitated
for many months from doing any work,
and even Mr. Thomas was so terribly
injured, that had it not been for expert
medical attention, and the magnificent
nursing of a devoted wife, lie
also, would have fared the same
fate as his mo'i unfortunate
companions. Ho was confined to
his room for seven weary months.
His worse injuries were of an Internal
nature, although he had to wear knee
caps and also have his body bandaged
for several years afterwards In order to
give the necessary strength to pursue
his dally occStlon; and even now, in
cold weather, he suffers pain in his
limbs from the effects of the terrible
accident, but he still works in the
mines. Being a prominent citizen of
the West Side, and a leading council
man, it would not be out of place to
give a short sketch of ills career
since he arrived in this country
thirty-six years ago. He has always
worked in the mines. He was born at
Merthyr Tydvll In the year 1843. He
came to this country in May 7, 1S59, His
first American home was at Dover, N.
J. He remained there a few years, and
then came to Scranton, where he has
resided ever since. He married his
wife, who is the daughter of the late
Mr. Messech Weeks, a sturdy old citi
zen in his day, In May, 1SG4, and nine
children have been born unto them.
Three of the children are dead. They
buried a bright and estimable son in
October, 1S0G, in his seventeenth year,
which caused the family much grief.
Mr. Thomas is very popular in and
around the mines, and also in the ward
in which he resides. He represents the
Fourth ward in the present select coun
cil and is distinguished for his unflinch
ing integrity and great usefulness. He
served a term also in the common coun
cil with the same distinction and hon
est purposes. "Bill" Thomas' (us he is
familiarly called by his friends) word
Is as good as his bond, and woo to the
man that approaches him on any mat.
ter having the slightest taint of crook
edness. He is a rugged Republican and
one of the noblest Welsh citizens of
Scran ton.
THE VEX. ARCHDEACON PRYS.
The Yen. Archdeacon Prys for by
that name lie is best known in Wales,
or Archdeacon Merwnydd was born at
Gerdl Dluog, in the parish of Clandecyn,
lu 1541. He was educated at St. John's
college, Cambridge, and after having
received holy orders, was Instituted to
the rectory of Ffestiniog, 1072, was
made Archdeacon of Melrconelhshlre In
1676, and canon of St. Asaph In 1G02.
Ho was a learned divine, and a dis
tinguished poet. Hq was the uuthor of
the metrical version of the Welsh
psalms still in use; in the preface of
Dr. Morgan's Bible the archdeacon Is
mentioned as one who had greatly as
sisted In the first translation of the
Bible Into Welsh. It Is said this ver
sion of the psalms was brought about
In this way: In his time there was no
collection of hymns for the use of
churches, and to Introduce singing to
tlie service of his church ho versified
one psalm regularly for every time ho
had a Welsh service in his church until
the whole were sung there before they
were published. Ills version of the
psalms were first printed in London In
1C21. Archdeacon Prys was as well ac
quainted with the rules of Welsh poetry
ns any man, and ho says with regard to
the texture and versification of our best
poems, "No bards In any language oyer
surpasses the Welsh,"
"Of nil the tissues ever wrought
On the Parnassian hill,
Fair Cambria's web, In art and thought,
Dlsulaya the greatest skill,"
Ills poetical ctjnipostldns.are many,
but so far preserved In manuscript, the
most remarkable of which are in his
poetical controversy with William Cyn
wal, of Pen Machno, consisting of C4
poems.
Prefixed to Dr, paylcs' "Walsh Gram
mar," which Is" dedicated to, the arch
deacon, aru s6mo eloirant Latin verses
by Prys In recommendation of the
work, where Uq, mentions that ho was
then'SG years of', age. The Verses are
dated 1G21, and translated thus Into
English by the' Rev. J, Walters, rector
of Llandotlgh, author of the "Welsh
and English Dictionary," They are as
follows:
Yo soii3 of fame, with every science
fraught
(One taught at Sens and one at Oxford
taught),
Exert their skill our language to restore
That. Used by bards in golden duys of yore.
ISoth these are doctors, and alike in name,
The same their proper, and their sur the
same.
In Cumbria's tongue both knowing, bleat
with skill
The critic's chair with dignity to 1111.
Physicians both both fi lends of human
kind
One heals corporeal Ills, and one the sickly
mind,
Eacii In his branch a fair prollclencc
shows,
To each his country warm affection owes,
Tlio' Cambrian born, yet conversant
abroad,
Tlio first, by daring novelty un-nwed,
Attempts our Ancient Alphabet to change,
Our Veteran troops beneath new banners
runge.
Still in his mind our language holds a
place,
The' unacquainted with Its parents race;
Ills native longuo Is ever at I1I3 heart,
Tlio' not well skilled in its poetic art;
Whence he blind guides linpllclty obeys
Still pressing on, unconscious that he
strays,
Th' attempt we honor and transmit to
fame;
Wo venerate his love, and glory in his
name. , .''.'. ,,' ,
Rut In tlio last tho'ito'erabroad we find
A moro attentive', m'oro'dlsfcerhlijg mind,
Ench deep recess of language lie explores
Nor rest below, but to the summit soars,
His much lov'd Cambrians ho conducts
and brings
By paths dhect to Salem's sacred springs;
Points out each stream on areola's U-arnt'd
shore. - - - "' ,
And bids him drink where He had drunk
before,
Erroi's dark night, which erst involv'd
our isle,
Too long the dupe of Rome's enslaving
guile,
lie lends us light at once to chaso away,
And of fair truth restored the golden day.
Ho gladly deigns his coUntrymeii'to teach,
By well-welgh'd, rules, the rudiments rof
speech,
That when the root, first, of our own wo
gain,
The Hebrew tongue we thence may soon
attain
That, still desirous to Improve our days.
We, blessing God in Cambria's natlvo
lays, '
May to the Saviour live; to" Whom bo end
less praise.
What a noble society of learned
Welshmen we are with, while reading
the above lines. Dr. Slon Dafydd
Rhys, the grammarian; Dr. John
Davies, of Mallwyd; Archdeacon
Prys, of Melrioneth; and the Rev. J.
Watters, M.A., the lexicographer and
divine. Never were better four pillars
of the venerable Welsh language
grouped together.
NOTES.
Miss Hilda Wilson, the celebrated sing
er, is a niece of Mr. Hugh Waddle, of
Llanelly.
During the lato Dr. Morris' principal
ship of the Brecon Memorial college, close
upon 2o0 ministers sat under his tuition.
The "Cerddor" for December contains,
among other attractions, a character
sketch of Mr. Harry Evans, the famous
Dowlals choir leader.
Dafydd ab Gwllym, the great love poet
of Wales, died D2S years ago, and In calling
attention to the fact a writer in one of
the Welsh weeklies remark: "When we
realize that his remains have been lying
burled for the last live and a quarter cen
turies.lt is strange that his language is so
easily understood in the present century."
The well-known Welsh missionary, the
Rev. Bowen Rees, who has been laboring
under the London Missionary society, a:
InyatI, Matabeleland, Central Africa, has
just arrived in Wales. W, H. Reese Is at
present staying at the homo of his youth
In Glamorganshire. During the last Muta
bele rebellion the experience of Mr. and
Mrs. Reese were of exceptional peril and
trial.
One of the mothers appealing before
the Pembrey School Board recently for
tno irregularity of her child, scored rath
er heavily over the members. When she
appeared on the scene, tlio Board too
hastily concluded that she was a monog
lot, and presumed, In her hearing, that
she desired 'to speak In the vernacular.
"Just as you please," she answered, "eith
er will do for me. I will take whichever
you llko best."
Mr. T. II. Thomas, R. C. A., of Cardiff,
Is one of the lecturers announced by tho
Llanelly Cymmrodorlon society for Feb
ruary next. This distinguished Welsh ar
tist takes for his subject "Celt Goltaldd"
(Darlunledlg). Among other speakers and
entertainers from tho present date to tho
end of the session uro tho Rev. J. T, Job
(Isawel), the Rev. Elvet Lewi (Elved),
Watcya Wyn, Madame Martha Harries,,
tho Rev. M. Morgans (Cross Hands), and
the Rev. T. Johmj (Llanelly).
Tho Scriptural injunction a3 to the ab
surdity of hiding one's light under a
bushel Is applicable to societies no less
than to individuals. The Pontypildd
Ladies' choir did well at Llandudno, for
wo have the testimony of tlio adjudica
tors that they ran the winners very e'.oso
Indeed. Thuy did better at tho Cardl'l
exhibition eisteddfod, for there, under two
of the samo adjudicators as otllelated at
Llandudno, they vanquished the victors.
Tho tables were entirely rovorsed, Lon
don taking second, and Pontyprld 1 taking
the premier position. Having thus dem.
onslrated their superiority 111 Hie com
petitive arena, tho Ladles' choir from
Pontypridd are courting success on con
cert platforms, and seem in a fal- way of
securing It. Many Important engage
ments in English towns have been offered
them, and tours are being arraugni.
Eynon Davies fears that another ten or
may be twenty years must etup?e before
we shall see In Wales one strong theologl.
cal college for all tho Nonconformist de
nominations. This seems a pesslmlstl;
view to take, Public opinion Is surely, if
not voiy rapidly, ripening In fat or of
such a combination, and the progress
made In this direction during the last
six or eight years has been most remark
able. Tho Culvlnlstlc Methodists have
long since taken a practical step in throw
ing tlio doois of Uala to students of ull
socts. The amalgamation of Bala and
Trefecca is nieiely a question of time. Tho
resolve of tho Carmarthen college au
thorities to conllno the curriculum of that
institution to theology will help on tho
movement among the- Cangreg.wIonallHts,
wlillo tho Baptists tlnd themselves also
faeo to faco with a "college question,"
tho decision of which Is being closely
watched bv all who desire to see the
Nonconformist powora in Wules abandon
ing the policy which dlsslpitis their
strength on small colleges, and concen
trating 'their fortes in tho establishment
of one strong and influential thoologlcal
instltuto for the whole of the Prlnil
pallty. Considerable disappointment Is being ex
pressed at the prospect of tho Chief In
spectorship of Schools In Wnles being
handed over to an English churchman to
tho exclusion of moro t(ian one compet
ent olllclal now in tho examination mi
Welsh schools
