Home News. CARDIGAN The members of the Aberystwyth Board of Guardians again discussed at length at their meeting on Monday their dispute with the Local Government Board as to the appointment of a medical officer. Dr. Bonsall some time ago re- signed the office of medical officer of the workhouse. The guardians then called upon him to resign the offices of district medical officer and public vac- cinator held by him, on the ground that the three offices were included in one appointment, but this he declined to do. The Local Government Board declined to call upon Dr. Bonsall to resign the other two offices. A further letter was read from the Board stating that, with the information at present before them, they were not prepared to take action. CARNARVON. Much satisfaction was caused at Carnarvon on Saturday by the circulation of a rumour that there was every likelihood of the efforts of the Welsh members of Parliament, more particularly Mr. Lloyd-George, to secure the retention of the Royal Naval Reserve battery proving successful. It is understood that the rumour was based on private information which reached the town that day from which it was inferred that Carnarvon will continue to occupy the position of the Lerwick and other stations. In the small hours of Friday morning a man walked along the line to the Bangor railway station and told an extraordinary tale to the officials on duty. He said that he travelled with the Irish mail from Chester the previous evening, and when a short distance from Bangor he either fell or was thrown out of the train when it was travelling at full speed. He had walked through two long tunnels, and had to avoid several trains by crouch- ing against the wall. The officials could find no serious injuries on the man, who proved to be a discharged soldier from India, and he was allowed to resume his journey to Holyhead by a later train. He has furnished the police with a description of his carriage companions. A deputation waited upon Mr. Bryn Roberts, M.P., on Friday evening, on behalf of Portmadoc shipowners to urge the need of legislation which would do away with the need of more than one certificated officer on board of British ships of small tonnage trading with foreign ports. Mr. Griffith Prichard introduced the deputation, and the case was presented by Mr. Thomas Roberts, solicitor. Mr. Bryn Roberts said he would do all he could to further the matter. Mr. Roberts was also asked by the deputation to support the aboli- tion of light dues on shipping and the placing of the light service under direct Government super- vision and control. Mr. Roberts said he felt there was a strong case by the deputation, but he would like to hear the case on the other side before com- mitting himself. DENBIGH. Mr. O. Bleddyn Lloyd, a Liberal and Noncon- formist, has been returned unopposed as a member of the Denbigh County Council for Llanfair-Tal- haiarn, in the place of Mr. W. Griffith, elected an alderman. As a result of Sunday's storms the Vale of Clwyd is submerged to the extent of hundreds of acres. The district of Llanrhaiadr presents the appearance of a huge lake and the farmers have had to remove their stock for safety. On Saturday night a distressing accident occurred near Talycafn, in the Vale of Conway. Owen Roberts, who lived at the Morfa Farm, the homestead of which is between the high road and the railway, about a mile on the Llanrwst side of Talycafn Station, left the house about seven o'clock and went to the high road. He heard a train (the 7.7 p.m. from Llanrwst) pass, and as he had just before the train came by heard the gate open of an occupation crossing over the line, he went to the crossing, and found there the dead bodies of his wife and her four months old baby, whom he had not long before left safe at home, The body of his wife, Margaret Roberts, who was about 22 years of age, was lying parallel with the rails, but outside

Football Chat. fBy PEL DROED.] Last Saturday's Matches.-Cardiff beat Mose- ley, Swansea defeated Neath, Llanelly defeated Newport, and London Welsh defeated Lennox. Some Comments thereon.—In regard to the Cardiff v. Moseley match, the Cardiffians did not show great form in the first half, but in the last 20 minutes of the game, they were, according to the Birmingham Daily Post, "irresistible." By defeating Neath on the latter's ground, Swansea broke the Neathites' ground record. There was some surprise at Newport's defeat; but, Llanelly on the day's form, were great, their forwards particularly so. London Welsh "had their work cut out to defeat Lennox," according to the London athletic critics, but it must be stated out of fairness to the London Cymry, that they were minus one or two of their crack players. England v. Wales. — To-day (Saturday) at Richmond, England and Wales meet. It is the first British International Match of the season. As prophesied in the LONDON WELSHMAN last week, Maddocks, of the London Welsh, will play at three-quarter, vice Willie Llewellyn, who has definitely retired from the game. This is the only change in the Welsh side that defeated New Zealand. Probable Absentees.-It is reported that J. F. Williams, the clever London Welsh for- ward, is indisposed, and is not likely to play with the Welshmen. His place will be probably taken by Harry Watkins, Llanelly, first reserve. Percy Bush, of Cardiff, is also indisposed, and will be another absentee. Vile, of Newport, will probably deputise him. On paper form Wales ought to win. If they can reproduce their form against New Zealand on Decem- ber 16th, then England will be badly worsted. In selecting more players from the West of England to do duty for the Rose the English selection committee have acted very judiciously, as the West of England players are far more conversant with the methods of Welsh players than those of any other part of England. London Welsh.-The London Welsh Club is to be congratulated upon having had four of its players picked to do duty for Wales, viz., A. F. Harding (Captain), E. T. Morgan, J. F. Williams, and H. T. Maddocks. Never, pro- bably, in the history of the Club have so many of its players been picked for one International match. The Committee arranged for the first annual reunion dinner to be held on Friday night, January 12th, at the Horse Shoe Hotel, Tottenham Court Road. Dr. W. LI. Davies, 3, Lincoln's Inn Fields, carried out the secretarial arrangements. Willie Llewellyn's New Shop.-The many admirers of Willie Llewellyn, whose past skill as a footballer was so well known throughout British athletic circles, will, I am sure, wish him every success in his new business. Mr. Llewellyn has just opened a chemist shop at Tonypandy, a thriving mining town in the Rhondda Valley. Cardiff v. Paris. The Cardiff Club has arranged to play Paris in the French capital on Shrove Tuesday, February 27th. The Parisians agreed to a guarantee of £80. The fixture is arousing considerable interest in Parisian athletic circles.

them, a few yards on the Llanrwst side of the crossing, while that of the baby was on the crossing itself. The head of the woman was injured, but neither she nor the child had been run over. The woman must have gone a little way down the line in the direction of Llanrwst before she was killed. Her husband and his father and mother were greatly distressed. FLINT. The Rev. W. LI. Nicholas, rector of Flint, has been appointed chaplain to the High Sheriff of Flintshire, Mr. James Williams, Fellow of Lincoln College, Oxford. GLAMORGAN. At a meeting of Aberdare Urban District Council on Monday, a resolution was passed, after a heated discussion, in favour of erecting 50 workmen's houses in the district. It was also resolved, on the motion of Mr. R. L. Berry, to reduce the percentage now paid to owners who compounded for their district rates from 50 to 20 per cent. At Cefn John Gough, Caedhir Farm, Dolygaer, was charged with stealing four sheep, belonging to Daniel Jenkins, Ynysfawr Farm, and also with stealing one sheep belonging to David Thomas Jones, Llwysiog Isha Farm. The prisoner was committed for trial on both charges, bail being again allowed, himself in £ 100 and two sureties of ^50 each. The Conciliation Board for the coal trade of South Wales and Monmouthshire met at Cardiff on Saturday, this being a special meeting to consider a proposal raised by the workmen's representatives during the recent negotiations for a new agreement that there should be a rearrangement of the rates paid to the hauliers. At present a good deal of friction exists owing to the variations in these rates, and in some instances the hauliers threatened to decline to sign the new agreement. The workmen's representatives suggested a uniform rate of 4s. 6d. per day as the standard, with the percentages in addition, and there was also a suggestion that they should be paid as for piece-work. Ultimately the Board appointed a sub-committee, consisting of seven representatives of the coal-owners and seven representatives of the workmen, to consider the matter and report to a future meeting. MONMOUTH. Extraordinary scenes were witnessed on Saturday at the close of a football match at Talywain, Mon- mouthshire, no fewer than eleven free fights taking place on the road outside the field between sup- porters of the two teams. The referee was guarded by the committee and forwards of the Talywain team. Though the Parliamentary notice deposited by the Alexandra, Newport and South Wales Company states, among other things, that powers will be sought to extend the existing dock accommodation and to dredge and to impound waters, the details of a definite scheme of the proposed improvements and developments to the docks have not yet been settled. MONTGOMERY. The Montgomeryshire County Council have arranged that the Liberals should return to the work of the Education Committee, and that all teachers' salaries should be paid.
