THE NATIONAL EISTEDDFOD. The Mayor of Carnarvon, Mr. W. A. Darbi- shire, has this week offered in connection with this year's National Eisteddfod the substantial prize of twenty-five guineas for the best essay on the Welsh slate quarries. He suggests, with the view of encouraging practical workmen to compete, that the essay should be in Welsh. He desires also, that competitors should take a broad and comprehensive view of the subject, dealing not only with the practical but with the indus- trial and economical aspects of the question, the mutual relations of capital and labour, and the probable effect of the application of protective tariffs or of Free Trade principles to this, the staple industry of North Wales. The Marquis of Bute, who is the president of the Cymmrodorion Society, has consented to become the president of the Royal National Eisteddfod of this year, which will be held at Carnarvon.
