FATAL ACCIDENT AT TALACRE. Young Woman Killed on the Line. On Thursday, Mr F. Llewelyn Jones, County Coroner, conducted an inquiry at Tynymorfa Farm, respecting the death of Mrs Elizabeth Jane Roberts (28), of Cefn. Ruabon, who met her death under exceedingly sad cir- cumstances at noon on Monday. The jurymen were as follows Messrs J. B. Thomas, Gwespyr (foreman), Edward Jones (Tynymorfa), Thos.Williams (Gwespyr) J.R. Williams (Tan Lan), H.Hughes (Mason's Arms), Roger Williams (Gwespyr),LI. Huxley, J. Parsons, F. W. Cooke, J. Vickers, Isaac Jones (Tynymorfa), F. Faulkner, F. S. Goold, and Patrick Cowman. The first witness called was Enoch Roberts, who identified the body as that of his wife, who, he said, for the past five weeks had been staying with her aunt (Mrs Evans) at Railway Cottages, Tynymorfa, for the benefit of her health. In reply to the Coroner, witness stated that his wife's hearing was good. Mrs Elizabeth Evans, of Railway Cottages, deposed to being with deceased on Monday. They intended getting to Talacre Station by 1-30, and when at the level crossing a train came from the direction of Chester. They stepped back for that to pass, and immediately it*liad doue so her niece proceeded to cross the metals, while witness stood looking after the train that had passed. The next thing was that she heard a whistle and saw a train coming from the opposite direction, which she had not noticed until it was quite close to her on account of the noise and steam from the first train. She was quite under the im- pression her niece had got to the other side safely, and when the train had passed she saw the body of her niece between the metals. She rushed to her immediately, but life was extinct. Lewis Roberts, of Holyhead, engine driver, said that on Monday he was driving the express train leaving Holyhead at 10-5, which passed Talacre at about 1 o'clock. He was on the left side of the engine keeping a look-out, and he did not notice anybody at the crossing. They had just passed one train, and he sounded his whistle when nearing the crossing, as was his duty, especially as another train had just gone by. The fireman was keeping a look-out on the other side of the engine, and when they were passing the crossing, the 0 latter told him he believed they had knocked a woman down. He stopped the train within 500 or 600 yards, and he started to go back, but a spare guard on the train went to lender assistance instead. He reported the occurrence at Talacre Station. The train was travelling at about 45 miles per hour. The steam from the other train would prevent him seeing far ahead. Owen Jones, of Holyhead, stoker on the train, corroborated the previous witness, adding that the woman was only about five yards from the engine when he saw her. She seemed confused, and he jumped to the whistle, but the engine struck her before she could get out of the way. In reply to the Coroner witness said the driver had been whistling before that. R. Hope Roberts, Llandudno Junction, a guard in the front van of the train in question, made a similar statement to the previous witness. When the train stopped he went back to the scene of the accident, and found the body nine or ten yards from the crossing. He examined her and found she had been struck on the head, and she was quite dead when he arrived. In summing up the Coroner said there need be no hesitation as to the Jury returning a verdict that the deceased had been accidentally killed. Mr Evans had indicated to them what had happened, and it was evident deceased's attention had been taken up with the down train, and not taking the precaution to look the other way after the down train had passed. The driver and stoker seemed to have done everything that could be expected when approaching the crossing they had kept a look-out on each side, and sounded the whistle, so that no blame could be attached to either of them. There was only one verdict that the Jury could bring in. C) Without leaving the room a verdict of "accidently killed" was unanimously agreed to.

LIBERAL CONVENTION AT RHYL. Many prominent Prcstatyn Liberals jour- neyed to Rhyl on Tuesday and Wednesday to take part in the meetings held in connection with the Welsh National Convention. Thou- sands of delegates from all parts of Wales were present. At the Queen's Palace, Rhyl, on Tuesday night, a reception was given to the delegates of the Welsh National Convention by Mr J. Herbert Lewis, M.P., and Mr J. Herbert Roberts, M.P. Some fifteen hundred ladies and gentlemen attended. The guests were received by Mr and Mrs Herbert Lewis, Mr and Mrs Herbert Roberts, Miss Roberts of Bryngwenallt, and Mrs Lloyd Roberts, Sir Alfred Thomas, M.P., arrived early, and, as the Chairman of the Welsh Parliamentary party was presented to many of the local leaders who were present. The other mem- bers of Parliament at the reception were Colonel Sir Ivor Herbert, Mr Ellis Griffith, Mr Wynforil Phillips, Mr W. Jones, Mr Jonu Williams, and Mr J. D. Rees. The prospec- tive Liberal candidate for the Flint Boroughs (Mr J. W. Summers) was also present, and was heartily congratulated. In the course of the evening the roof gardens and balcony, as well as the Palace hall, were available for promenading by the guests, who were enter- tained with music. On Wednesday afternoon Mr Lloyd George addressed a great meeting, every inch of the available accommodation at the Palace being occupied. He spoke of the grave crisis now before the country, and appealed to ail classes of the community to support him in every fair step he would take to put an end to it (applause). Continuing, the right hou. gentleman called attention to the comprehensiveness of the pro- gramme. It covered the whole ground of current political controversity. The three first resolution—dealing with the House of Lords, Disestablishment, and education questions- would be those on which most of their at- tention would be concentrated. They were probably more controversial and on that account they would appeal to every Welsh- mail (laughter and applause). With regard to the disestablishment resolution they would observe they had adopted bodily the resolu- tion carried unanimously at the great Cardiff' Convention. It represented the unanimous desire and unanimous demand of Welsh Liberalism, and they could not possibly recede from it (loud applause). By that reso- lution they stood or fell. Mr Haldane, Minister of War, addressed the evening meeting.

VISIT OF MR. HERBERT LEWIS, M.P. Enthusiastic Public Meeting. Suggested Library for the Village. A Generous Offer. There was an overflowing audience at the Wesleyan Schoolroom on Saturday night last week in response to the announcement that Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P. for Flintshire, would address his constituents. The chair was taken by Rev John Lloyd Hughes. The other speakers were Mr Griffiths (Chester) and Mr Hughes (Flint). The chairman, in according a welcome to Mr Lewis, spoke very highly of his Parlia- mentary labours. Referring to the Govern- ment itself, Mr Lloyd Hughes delivered a, stirring address, rousing considerable enthu- siasm amongst the audience. Mr Lewis, who was received with loud cheers, said it was his intention to review briefly the work done in Parliament during the past term. He referred to the Small Holdings of Scotland and Trades Disputes Bills, also the Education Bill. The Disestab- lishment and Disendowment question for Wales had received the attention of prominent Welsh members of late, said Mr Lewis. Since the Cardiff conference of the Welsh members this matter had been placed on the agenda. The Prime Minister would be sure to bring it before the House in the 4th session next year, and he (Mr Lewis) was confident the Bill would pass in that session. Should the Lords reject these Bills the Premier had said that the will of the people must prevail." (Applause). Mr Griffiths (Chester) in a short speech, moved a vote of confidence in the Government. This was seconded by Mr Hughes (Flint), the new Liberal agent for the County. Dr Lloyd Owen moved a vote of confidence in our Member (Mr Lewis), who, he said, was worthy of the highest confidence of his constituents. This was seconded by Mr Thomas Roberts (Sea View). Both motions were carried unanimously. Mr Lewis acknowledged, after which he said he would like to see a library opened in Ffynnongroew for the benefit of the young men. He advocated a library supported by voluntary subscriptions, and promised to subscribe to it to the extent of half the cost. Mr Arthur Hughes thanked Mr Lewis for his interest in the welfare of Ffynnongroew. and for his generosity in regard to the pro- posed library, feeling sure he was voicing the opinions of other young men in what he said. They were greatly in need of an in- stitution of this character at Ffynnongroew, but the question of means had baffled them in the past. There was a class of men in the village worthy of interest being taken in them. They were notable for sobriety, and were persevering and anxious to attain a wider knowledge in literature, being also fully conscious of the use of books in the making of good men and good citizens. Dr Owen and Mr Thomas Roberts (Sea View) supported all Mr Hughes had said. The matter was submitted to the meeting, and it was carried unanimously that they have a library as mentioned by Mr Lewis. A committee was formed consisting of mem- bers from all the local places of worship. Dr E. Lloyd Owen was appointed chairman and Mr Arthur Hughes, Secretary. The com- mittee decided to meet next Saturday for discussion.
The Quarterly Meeting of the Baptist Union of Flintshire will be held at "Tabernacle" Chapel on Monday. There will be a conference at 11-30 a.m., and at 2 p.m. a meeting of delegates. In the evening an open service, when the Revs. G. Evans, Rhyl, and R. E. Williams, Holywell, are expected to preach.
Water Supply. The Parish Council have greatly increased the supply of water at the well by diverting into it some adjacent springs, which were previously running to waste. Some people are of opinion that the water from this well might be laid to the houses in the village at a moderate cost.
