EISTEDDFOD CAERLUHD, What was somewhat grandiloquently de- nom-nated "Eisteddfod Caerludd," and which, by reason of its extension over two evenings, may perhaps be deserving of the title, com- menced at the Queen's-hall on Wednesday evening. Mr. D. Edwards, manager of the London "Daily News," was the president of the evening; the Rev. Hugh Price Hughes. Wei.sh Wesleyan missionary, acted as conductor, the general honorary secretary being Mr. Maen- gwyn Davies. It must be admitted that the proceedings were for the most part deadly dull, the conductor evidently regarding it as not within his functions to make the slightest effort to lighten matters by occasional out- bursts of eisteddfodic humour. The prize in the soprano competition went to Miss A. M. Dobson. Finchley. For the mezzo-soprano Miss Durrant, Grimsby, was declared the winner. The baritone solo competition was won by Mr. H. C. Glaysher, and the prize in the bass solo contest was awarded to Mr. D. T. Llewellyn, Port Talbot. The president's address being, perhaps, wisely limited to five minutes, was devoted to con- gratulating the committee who had endea- voured to unite the three sections of the Celtic race—the Scotch, the Irish, and the Welsh- which had played an important part in build- ing up the great empire of Britain. (Cheers.) The special function of each member of the Celtic family was to introduoe into the amal- gamated nation the vivifying influences of ima- gination. It was in the sphere of education that the genius of the Celtic peoples had been most clearly manifested of recent years. Long before England obtained the boon of elemen- tary education by the efforts of Mr. W. E. For- ster, Scotland Lad developed a system of edu- cation that was the envy and example of her greater neighbour. Wales was now provided with a system of secondary education by which the poorest is enabled to climb the ladder ot success, and she had attained this point of vantage before th? predominant partner. (Hear, hear.) The competitions then proceeded. The prize of Li 6s. for the chief essay on "The Condition of the Kelts in Roman Britain" was awarded by Mr. O. M. Edwards to Mr. Edward Jones, Rye Parjf, S.E. The translation from English into Welsh of a ballad of Mr. Ernest Rhys was adjudicated upon by Mr. Rhys himself, who gavii the prize of one guinea to the Rev. 11. Wnion Evans, of Machynlleth. The translation of a lyric of "Ceiriog" produced a curious division of the prize, Mr. Rhys award- ing the medal and half a guinea to Mr. R. Arthur Griffiths, solicitor, Carnarvon, a roan of "loan Ai-fon" and further sub-divided the rominiug half-guinea Wtwes-n Mr. J, Bdwards, Aberystwith. and Mr. Rhys D. Morgan ("Ap Lietirwg"), Maesteg. The efforts of several of 1h compstiteri wors stated by tie adjudi- cator to have been beneath contempt. The competitive Choral piesss tot a prize of £5(J and a medal were the "Scena. Landerketinung," competitive Choral piesss tot a prize of £ 50 and a medal were ths "Scena Landerketinung," by Greig, and "Dewi, Bydd Wych," from Mr. David Jenkins's "Dewi Sant," both being for male voices alone. Tho choirs entered wero (1) Glee Men from Brynmawr (conductor, Mr. W. Evans); (2) South London Male Voice Party (conductor, Mr, Caradog Jones); (3) Eryri Maie Voice Choir (eendttster, Mr, John Williams, Carnarron), (4) Gwa.Ua Male Voice Party (con-, due tor, Mr.- Madec Davies), who tang fn the above order. The adjudication of Mr. Joseph Ranneit, Mr, H. R. Eyers, and Mr. Emlyn Evan3 was delivered by Mr, Eyers. Fault was found Ranneit, Mr, H, R. Eyers, and Mr. Emlyn Evan3 was delivered by Mr. Eyers. Fault was found with all the choirs, some for taking the piece3 too fast, and others for being too slow. The over-accentuation was generally condemned, it having become with one or two of the choirs mere affectation. The prize was unanimously awarded to the Carnarvon Choir.
