MAGISTRATES' CLERK'S JUBILEE. Prescnta-tion at Devynock. At the conclusion of the business at Devynock Police Court on Thursday last, the Chairman (Col. Stuart Morgan) made a. presentation of a gold watch, suitably inscribed to Mr E. Cambridge Phillips on the completion of his 50th year of service as clerk to the justices. Col. Morgan remarked that it was a great pleasure and honour to him to hand to Mr Phillips that small token from the magistrates as a memento of his 50 years' service as their clerk. During that long period Mr Phillips must have seen great changes. They thanked him for the valuable advice he had always given I them, and hoped he would be spared a long time yet to be amongst them. Mr Phillips replied in a characteristi- cally humorous speech. He thanked the magistrates for their kindness, and assured them that he very much appreciated their gift, especially the inscription, which would call back to his memory the pleasant days he had spent in their court. It had always been a pleasure to come to Devynock, for he invariably had the greatest possible courtesy from the Bench and during the whole of the 50 years he had never had a cross word with the justices. He had advised them to the best of his ability, and they had treated him more like one of themselves than as their clerk. He was getting old, but he intended to carry on his work as long as his health and strength would allow him. It is believed that Mr Phillips, who is also clerk to the Talgarth justices, holds the record in Great Britain for continuous service to one bench of magistrates. He is well known as a caturalist and his book on the Birds of Breconshire is a standard authority on the subject. "t:J1Y"P-fønww. I
