Owing to dissension on the temperance question, a number of Holyhead Conservatives are contem- plating severing their connection with the present Club and organising a new institution on tem- perance lines. CARMARTHEN. Speaking on Monday at a Consistory Court, at Carmarthen, the Bishop of St. David's said that if an attempt were made to tear the Welsh dioceses from their present position as an integral part of the province of Canterbury, the attempt would be resisted as strenuously, and he believed as success- fully, as it was on the last occasion. CARNARVON. Miss Leonora Davies, secretary of the Bangor Free Church Council, has received a letter from Mr. Evan Roberts in reply to hers asking the revivalist when he proposes to re-commence at Bangor his interrupted North Wales mission. Evan Roberts says he is unable to fix any date or make any arrangements, as he "has no light" on the subject. The inference is drawn from this letter that the mission is abandoned, if not permanently, at least till next autumn. The wife of a workman named Jones, living in a detached cottage on the Abererch Road, Pwllheli, was found on Monday afternoon lying unconscious at the cottage suffering from a serious scalp wound and concussion of the brain. She was alone, her husband having been out at work since the early morning. The room was in great disorder, and the police on investigation found that the sum of ^10 odd had been stolen from a chest of drawers. The affair is shrouded in mystery, the police last evening being without a clue. Mrs. Jones, who is aged 60, is in a very critical condition. Intended purely as a joke, an incident which occurred at the annual eisteddfod of the University College of North Wales at Bangor on Saturday was not taken in a humorous spirit by the gentle- man principally concerned, and the affair has caused some comment in the city. Two choirs entered for the female choir competition, the test piece being Go, Springtime, Go," which was com- posed by Mr. J. D. de Lloyd, Aberystwyth, who happened to be the adjudicator. The second choir appeared on the stage with cap and gown and their eyes covered with a black cloth, and the conductress wore the robes of a doctor of music. After pre- liminaries in the shape of running up and down the scale in a ludicrous manner, they gave a travesty of the piece. Amused at first, the audience after- wards shouted "Shame," and the choir left the stage amid chilling silence. One of the ladies publicly apologised to the adjudicator, who, how- ever, said they had carried the joke too far. DENBIGH. In East Denbighshire there was a fierce snow- storm during Thursday night, and hundreds of sheep are reported dead on the mountains. FLINT. The half-yearly meeting of the East Halkyn Mining Company was held at Chester on Saturday, the chairman, Mr. W. F. Mason, presiding. The directors reported that the total output of lead ore from the East Halkyn Mine and the Rhosesmor Mine during the half year had been 1,940 tons. The profit for the half year was £7,681 2s. lid., out of which £500 had been written off for depreciation. GLAMORGAN. Sir George Newnes, the member for Swansea, has presented the Rev. R. J. Campbell, of the City Temple, with a motor-car. James Driscoll and Henry Warren went on the Taff Vale Railway, near Ynysybwl, on Saturday, as a short cut home." On Sunday morning the dead and mutilated body of Driscoll was found on the line, while Warren was lying close by unconscious. On recovery he said that he and Driscoll were knocked down by a train.
