ROYAL SOCIETY PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. The annual general meeting of the Aberyst- wyth Sub-branch of this society was held at the Town Hall, on Wednesday afternoon. Mr T. J. Waddingbam was voted to the chair. There were also present Mr W. Williams, Capt. Legge, Mr B. E. Morgan, Rev. J. Williams, Mr Morris Davies and Sergt. Evans.—With reference to a proposal to erect a shed on the beach in front of the Terrace, for sheltering the donkeys from the sun, Capt. Legge said the heat did not de- mand that, but it was necessary that care should be taken that boys did not belabour the don- keys. Sergt. Evans said that he and the con- stables took every precaution that the boys did not ill-treat the donkeys, and he saw that they were properly shod and cared for. The don- keys improved in appearance after they had been on the Terrace sometime —The secretary, Mr Morris Davies, said that he had to report that this year, tor the first time, there had been a falling off in subscriptions and subscribers. This was due to the death of Mrs. Parry, Llidiade, Mr Atwood and Mr H. Davis. There was also two or three unpaid subscriptions amounting to £ 1 lis. There had been seventeen prosecutions, resulting in 14 convictions and 3 dismissals. The amount of subscriptions was .£21, and the expenditure £2 3s. If he was re-appointed as secretary and treasurer he hoped to be able to increase the subscriptions. The expenditure was incurred in printing and postage. The balance of £ 18 17s would be sent to the Carmarthen branch to de- fray the expenses of Inspector Fair, who had been to Aberystwyth several times during the past year. Very much credit is due to Supt. Lloyd and Sergt. Evans, for their valuable ser- vices. Nearly all the parties summoned were fitirly educated. Mr Davies trusted that mem- bers of the society would continue to exert themselves. A moiety of all fines are to be given to the informers, but the society had a rule that the moiety recovered by its means should not be devoted to the funds of the society, but should be handed over to any other object. Mrs. Szlumper had written de- siring the money should be handed to the Dorcas Society, but as the Dorcas was only an Aberystwyth society, and the police had assis- ted very much, he suggested that the whole be handed over to the police superannu- ation fund. The amount in hand was jE4 13s lOd. Mr B. E. Morgan agreed, for this year. Capt. Legge seconded, and it was agreed to, it being understood that the police should in future collect the moiety. Sir Pryse Pryse, Bart, was elected president, and Mr Waddingham vice- president. Mrs. Williams, MrSzluinper, Rev. T. A. Penry, Capt. Legrge, Mr John James, Rev. J. Williams, Mr B. E. Morgan, Dr. E. Rowland, were elected as a committee. Mr Morris Davies was re-elected hon. secretary and treasurer. jCapt. Legge was glad the society had taken in hand the question of close season for birds. He had re- cently seen a peregrine falcon, shot near Aber- ystwyth. The chough was also becoming ex- tinct.
