UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF NORTH WALES. At the last meeting of the Council of the College, the following resolution was unan- imously adopted, with reference to the death of Mr. W. Cadwaladr Davies :— The Council has heard with the profoundest regret of the death of Mr. W Cadwaladr Davies, the first Secretary and Registrar of the College, and for the last four years one of its Vice- Presidents. His great practical ability, his unique knowledge of the country, his unfailing judgment and tact, his high patriotic ideals and absolute devotion to the best interests of the College, enabled Mr. Davies to render services to the institution such as entitle him to be regarded as one of its chief founders, and cannot fail permanently to influence its future history. The Council further recalls the important part which he played in securing for the College the great bequest upon which the institution so largely depends for its financial stability, and the assiduous attention which for the remainder of his life, he devoted to the affairs of the estate, so as to ensure the fullest possible advantage to the College from the benefaction. The Council feels that in his death a national loss has to be deplored, and desires to convey to Mrs. Davies and his other relatives the expression of its deep and respectful sympathy.
