DElTII OF NIR. JAMES EDWARDS,…
DElTII OF NIR. JAMES EDWARDS, OF PENARTH. It is with deep regret that we announce the death of Mr. James Edwards, the respected harbour superintendent at Penarth, the sad event having taken place at about four o'clock on Monday after- noon at his residence, Westwood, Penarth. The de- ceased gentleman had bean in failing health for some time, and in the earlier part of the year spent some weeks at Malvern. He returned to his home at Whitsuntide, having apparently derived much benefit from the change of air and environ- ments. Unfortunately, however, he contracted a chill some little time ago, and this, acting upon a system already somewhat enfeebled by illness, developed into pneumonia. On Sunday week he was obliged to take to his bed. He was attended by Dr. Nell, Penarth, and Dr. Charles Vachell, Cardiff, who were most assiduous in their atten- tion to the patient. On Thursday last an im- provement took place in Mr. Edwards' condition, this being well maintained until Sunday night. A relapse then occurred, and from this he, unfor- tunately, never rallied. Mr. Edwards was a native of Ebbw Yale, where he was born in 1837, being, therefore, at the time of his death, 55 years of age. He joined the staff of the Taff Vale Railway Company in 1851, taking up a Dosition in the office of the chief superin- kndent at Cardiff. He remained in that department for a number of years, gaining gradual promotions until finally he was appointed to the chief cQJlectorship of dues at Penarth Dock on its bsing opened in 1865.. SILC, that date the post has developed into that of a harbour superintendent, the duties of which Mr. Edwards filled to the entire satisfaction of all. The deceased occupied a seat on the Penarth Local Board of Health since its formation, and for several years he was chairman of that-authority. He had been in a variety of ways closely associated with the development of Penarth, and its gradual expansion into an important commercial centre, He was one of the promoters of the Penarth Slip- way and the Windsor Slipway and Ship-repairing Yard. as well as of minor industrial undertakings. 1\1; Edwards married, in 1860,30 daughter of the late Mr. Fråncis Price, who was for some time manager of the Blaina Iron Works. He leaves a widow and a family of seven children-five sons and two daughters-to mourn their sad bereavement, while two brothers also survive hÍlil, Mr. Edward Edwards, the respected cashier of the Taff Vale Railway Company, and Mr. George A. Edwards, who resides in the United States. The deceased gentleman was a member of the Church of England, and was associated politically with th" Conservative party. Personally, he was a man of most engaging character, with a charm of manner that won for him universal popularity. He was widely known in Cardiff as well as at Penarth. and hia premature death will cause a painful shock to his numerous friends and acquaintances.

The geavenginc, had been done durinz the month satis- factorily. He begged to call %ttention to the con- dition of some surface drains, which caused very offensive smells. He also called attention to the condition of some party walls at the back of some houses in Daniel-street, Fairford-street, and Beverley-street. The walls had been partly taken down, and the backs presented a very dilapidated appearance.-It was decided to call the owners" attention to the matter.-One application for regis- tration under the Cowsheds and Dtiry Act had been complied with, and the result of his inspection cf some butchers'. greengrocers'. and milk-shops was satisfactory. He had served 12 7 notices under the Infectious Diseases Act. Number of houses infected, 8; disinfected, 21. The result of his inspection of 25 ships waa that he discovered four nuisances, and had served notices on the captains of the ship3.-The Chairman inquired whether there was a water supply to Davis-street. He had beard several complaints of defective water supplies, and he had reported on the matter.- Inspector Leyshon said he could not say whether there was a proper water supply or not, as Davis- atreet was not in a line of the streets he was inspecting at present. THE ELECTRIC-LIGHTING QUESTION. To consider the question of lighting the district by electricity was the next subject down for dig- "assion. The Clerk reported that the Inspector Wag awav —Mr. Lewis said he should like to hear something more about the matter.-The.Chairman aaid it was a question that could be very well left to the Parliamentary Committee. They would soon meet to consider the purchase of the G-is and Water Works, and this matter would come within thp-Ir province.-Mr. Lewis thought it was well to defer it until the Surveyor returned. He begged to move that they ask the Parliamentary Committee to consider it in connection with the Gas and Water questions.-This was agreed to. UR. LEWIS'S CELLAR AGAIN. Mr. Lewis called attention to the fact that the consideration and discussion of the matter of the drainage of his cellar should have been done by the Health Committee-not the Public Works Committee.-The Clerk said the construction of drains and sewers was in the hand-) of the Public Works Committee.-Mr. Lewis said it was not to construct a sewer, but to remedy a nuisance that had occurred since the construction. CONSIDERATION OF BILLtI. The Clerk brought before the notice of the mittee bius to be passed by the-n. Thc, ha charged 13 guineas for services rendered. He had been paid two guineas on account. For every cise there he had charged a guinea but the in- found on incluiry of the ma,trates' spector had I clerk that the analyst wa, only allowed a_guinea p-,r day. That brought the bill back to seven guineas, and the money h-id to be recovered from people who had been convicted. Bills were presented from the Gas and Water Company for 46 10,3. an(X 4193, and as the discount Y,21 would be sacrificed if the bill, -ere not immediatelv paid. it was decided to piy the money on account, and not lose the discount. THE PROPOSED COTTAGE HOSPITAL. The next business was to consider the selection 4Df a site for the proposed cottage hospital.-Dr. Neale recommended that the hospital should be fixed in as central a positio-li as possible near the D'Dcks' as that was the chief seat of the accidents. thu-htthe best position would be found below th(, Buttrill,3.. at the top of Regent-street. which ran up from the Docks straight through Thorip,;on. street.-The Clerk said he believed they would be ,Lble to purchase a site there and, after a discussion, it was decided that the committee should hire a conveyance on Tuesday, at four eclock in the afternoon, and drive around the Dock road, through the Docks, and up to Regent- street, and endeavour to fix upon a suitable A DAXGEROCS SPOT. Mr. Thomas drew attention to the practice of children of walking across the unfinished roofing of the uncompleted hotel building on the Palmers- town road, and the Committee decided to write to j
two were living to-day. Mr. William Morgan, the oldest representative of Oddfellowship in the district, said a few words. During the 53 years he had been an Oddfellow he had only troubled the lodge for six weeks' sick pay. (Applause.) His heart was full of love for the Manchester Unity. He and the others had paid into the lodge at a time when every penny they earned was wanted in the homes but now, in his 74th year, when his labour was nearly done, he could look to the Glamorgan Lodge. (Applause.) He had never, in the 53 years he had been attached to the Unity, brought a single blot on the Order. (Applause.) Mr. Rees Morris proposed the Chairman," and Dr. O'Donnell responded, and assured the lodge of his sympathy with the principles of the Order. No one had a better opportunity than he had of seeing the benefits and the necessity of belonging to a society similar to theirs. (Applause.) Mr. Ivans proposed The Host and Hostess," and complimented Mr. McGill on the splendid repast he had provided, and Mr. McGill suitably responded. The Rev. E. Couch gave a few words of advise, after which the dinner proceedings terminated. Several present sang songs, which were much enjoyed. The procession a,iin reformed and marched to the Weuvoe Hotel, afterwards returning to the King William, and a pleasant and successful day terminated.

GALLANT HESCIJE OF A CHILD…
GALLANT HESCIJE OF A CHILD AT LLANDAPF. On Sunday afternoon about five o'clock a young man, named John Armitage, Clive-road, Canton, Cardiff, was with some friends taking a walk by the weir at Llandaff, when he noticed a little girl trying to cross over the sluice gate. She suddenly fell into the water, and he at once jumped in and rescued her, although the water was quite 14 feet deep, with a very great under-current. It is under- stood the child's name is Durston. and it resides in King's-road.

influenzá. from which he suffered was followed: by spasmodical attacks of asthma, and his heart showed signs of weakness and failure. After arriving in this country in May he resided for some time at Colwyn Bay. where he had several serious attacks of asthma and his life was at one time despaired of. Three weeks ago he removed to Bala, but was unable, owing to ill- health, to be present at the meetings which were intended to welcome him to his new field of labour, and he was confined to his house until last week, when his medical attendant permitted him to take a carriage drive. On Sunday night he had a severe attack of asthma, and early on Monday morning his heart failed, and he passed away peacefully at the comparatively early age of 59, leaving a widow-an American lady-and one son. Dr. Evans, who was a Biblical scholar of very high reputation, was born at Mold in 1833, and entered the Calvinistic Methodist College at Bala at the early age of 13 years. Soon afterwards his parents emigrated to America, and in the year 1854 Dr. Evans graduated Bachelor of Science at the Racine College, and two years afterwards he took his B.A. degree at the same college. He became successively a pastor of the Lane Seminary Church in 1860, professor of Church history in 1863, professor of biblicaÏ literature and exegesis in 1837, and of the Nevr Testament, Greek, 0 and exegesis in 1875. He was a member of the Wisconsin Legislature (1856), and was correspond- ing editor of the aitti-al IIerald (1863- G7). He translated and edited Yockler's Com- mentary on Job," in the American language series, and has published sermons and pamphlets. The next term at Bala College, writes Idriswyn," was looked upon as starting a new era in the history of the institution, and great were the ex- pectations on all hands as to the results. But before entering on his duties in his native land Dr. Evans was called from his labours to enjoy his reward. His death under such melancholy cir- cumstances has cast a gloom over the whole of the Principality.
"AUNT MARTHA" AS A SALVATIONIST.
"AUNT MARTHA" AS A SALVATIONIST. INTERESTING INCIDENT. Among those on the platform at the Salvation Army meeting at the Exeter Hall on Monday even- ing was" Aunt Martha," the Liberian negress who visited the Queen. In the middle of General Booth's speech, he having said that she wished to be introduced to him, Mrs. Ricks left her seat and and advanced along the front of the platform, her face wreathed in smiles, shook har-ds heartily with the head vf the Army, who made her a little speech of welcome, explaining that she was the widow of a former Pre- sident of the Negro Republic of Liberia, a statement which accounted for her complete suit of mourning. Then up spoke Mrs. Ricks My chilrlren," she said, with a foreign accent, I joined this Army six years ago. Long 8Ínce, before I saw the Queen, Jesus was my great Captain. That is all. I hive 'salvation-filled. The statement was greeted with fresh cheers, which seemed to give M"s. Ricks additional energy. Amid peals of laughter she suddendly began to dance a kind of jig, facing first to one side, then to the other, gesticulating towards the platform, then 'towards the meeting, shouting something which could not be heard, shaking hands with the people close to her, but never for a moment ceas- ing her dance. As she showed no signs of stopping, several members of the Army came forward and led her back to her place, where for some time she sat with her eyes closed, swaying herself backwards and forwards, the picture of perfect content.
PECTORAL BALSAM did me a wonder- l ful amount of good. It relieved my cough instantly -18. lid per bottle.
Among the names of successful candidates at the recent M.A. examination in philosophy at the London University is that of the Rev. John Thomas, Huddersfield, who is placed first on the list. Mr. Thomas, who is a native of Maesteg, has had a very brillian t career in the scholastic and pulpit world. Some years ago he entered Pontypool College comparatively unlearned, for his youthful days had been wholly spent in the coalpit, and he was the support of a widowed mother. In four years he graduated B.A. with very high honour in classics and philosophy. Although his career as a Baptist minister has not exceeded the brief space of four years, he has, by his sterling merit, reached the foremost place in the denomination.
