In the Barrow-m-Fur- ness Times of November 23rd, 1882, there appears the following paragraph:— well-known law-ûzhters Mr John T. Wil- liams, late of Millom, and Mr C. T. Clark, solicitor, of Lancaster—have come to a collision. The case of Williams v. Clark will come on for hearing at the new law courts in the course of a few weeks, and many people will be looking for the result of the trial. Mr Williams claims .the sum of JE10000 for damages, &c., and he is for conducting his own case throughout without a solicitor or counsel."—It appears that the above Mr Williams is Mr John Trevor Williams, Nurth- road, in this town, and that the action has been instituted in order to recover damages tor injury caused by the defendant making a com- promise in the action of Williams v Meakin and others at the Lancaster Assizes in 1879.
INFRINGING THE SUNDAY CLOSING ACT. -EMINENT VISITORS AT PONTRHYDD- ALLT. At the Carnarvon Magistrates' Court on Satur- day, befere Captain Wynne Griffith, Sir Llewelyn Turner, Mr George Farren, aiiii Dr Taylor Morgan, a charge of Sunday trading was preferred against Isaac Davies, landlord of the Rhyddallt Inn, Pont- rhyddallt. Deputy Chief Constable Prothero, who prosecuted, said that on the night of Sunday, November 12, Police Officer 24, stationed at Cwm- y-glo, visited the Rhyddallt Inn, and there found nineteen persons, four of whom were from Llan- beris distant betwren three and four miles from Pontrhyddallt. On behalf of the prosecution it was contended that the persons found on the de- fendant's premises were not bona fide travellers within the meaning of the act as they visited the bouse nolelv io* the purpose of drinking. Fif- teen of persons referred^ were from Caruar- Evidence was given by ^Tous^o^the (24) as to his visit to the defendant mjn, ty,e night in question. On the following, mornm^the landlady t,ld him that the four persons who we^. alleged not to be bona fid* travellers were walkm from Carnarvon to Llanbem, Pontrhyddallfc be. about midway between tne two places, had visited the defendant's houss on week days, but had never before seen such a large Ilsscmbl:gG of customers resident at a distance. cross-examined by Mr Al'anson, who defended, witness said that the case was reported to headquarters on f ber 13. when he personally informed the chiei oonstable and his deputy cf it. Mr Al!an?on This house, you know, has been twice orosecuted for offences which occurred months. and months ago, and which were duly reported. The charge of permitting drunkenness Was dismissed, and why is this case now proceeded Witness: The case was reported to the chief constable, who said he did not think it was clear enough, and that it was a pity to proceed against Mr Harwcod, the owner of the house, who was a respectable tradesman. Mr Farren: I don't see what this has to do with the present case, which is a charge of permitting Sunday trading. Mr Allanson: I want to know why we should be summosed at the end of January for aa offence committed months ago. Why should the case be raked up when, after such a length of time, we find a difficulty in getting rebutting evidence ? No licensed victualler would be safe under such circumstances, and, as representing the Carna-- vonshire Licensed Victuallers' Association, I have a right to complain, and I do bitterly", about the action of the police in connection with this prose- cation. The case should have been heard when the charge of permitting diunkenness was brought against the house nothing was then said about it upon that occasion, but when the police tailed to substantiate that charge, and the summons was dismissed, then the present offence is alleged against us. The case for the prosecution having be n con- eluded, Mr Allanson, addressing the bench for the defence, said it was a very serious matter that his client should be put to the expense of bringing on two occasions a large number of witnesses to rebut a charge which should have been investigated at the fi.st hearing. The defendant was very unfair- ly dealt with, especially when they regarded thin, fact that such a long period of time bai eLpeect since the offence was alleged to have be,n com. mittedand since the laying of the information. The persons round in the defendant's ho.ise bein outside the radius of three miles, they were bona fide travellers. Fair and reasonable precaution Lad been exercised by the defendant, who since the passing of the act had compelled all bunasv customers before being serve-I to write down their rames and addresses in a book kept for that pur- pose, the object being that no infringement of the pet should take place. Captain Wynn Griffith (examining tin book re- ferred to) —T see here that ou Sunday, October 1, there are included a^otu? the entries of visitors. I Mr William M&rwood, executioner Sir Watkin W. Wynn, Sir Wilfrid Lawson, and Mr Br d- laush., fir. p., for Northampton" (laughter). The bench can only hope that the first narmd in- dividual hid not the charge of lhe three gentle ,;eti whose names follow his (laughter). Mrs Davies, the defendant's wife, in the course of her evidence, denied that since tne passing of the Sunday Closing Act there had been an increase in the business on Sunday. Capt Griffith Did Sir Wstkin W. Wynn si,u this bock in your house ? Witness: No, it was done byMrHarwood. Capt Wynn Griffith Then all I Cq) say is that it is a scandalous shame th t the na, s of gentle- men of such hi h position and standing as Sir Watkin and Sir Wilfrid Lawson should be written immediately after the name of Marwood. Mr Farren The book has b^en handed to n? as evidence, and when it contaii < -i, h'entries as these its value entirely destroyer) Capt Wÿnn Griffith: There is also an ex- pression in this book which I will not venture to allude to. Mr Alia .son The thing was done in a joke, and we regret it very much. Sir Llewelyn Turner I, tco, think it a most scandalous thing for anyone to be miilty of. If my name was found in such a book I should feel very indignant. After hearing the evidence for the defence, Captain Wyun Griffith said that the beueh were of opinion that they ought to convict in the case, and they fined Davies 403 and costs, the license to be endorsed. HJ thought that the case should have been brought on at an early period. Sir Llewelyn Turner: I think so. too, because when a case is delayed for mon ths the Interests of justice are very seriously jeopardised. No notice of appeal was formally given, but it is understood that an appeal will be made against the decision.
ANOTHER CASE FROM PONTLYFNI. The business of the court also included the hearing of two charges against Robert John Williams, landlord of the Boar's Head Inn, Pont Lyfni,who was summoned for Sunday trading and for supplying drink to a police constable on duty. Deputy Chief Constable Prothero prosecuted, and Mr J. A. Hughes defended. It appeared that on the 14th inst, severri persons from Groeslon walked a number of miles around Llandwrog, and were supplied with drink at the Boar's Head Inn and at the Prince of Wales Inn, Pen-y-groes. At the former place they treated a police constable to a pint of besr. The men were fined on the previous Saturday for being on licensed premises during prohibited hoars, and the land- lord of the Prince of Wales Inn was als. mulcted in a penalty for supplying there. Sergeant Lewis Williams proved that the servant of the Boar's Head had admitted that she knew the pint cf beer called for by one of the men was for the constable. Mr Huahes contended that the men having traversed beyond the radius of three miles had constituted themselves boni fide travellers within the meaning of the act. With respect to the charge of supplying the constable, beer was ordered by one of the men, who said they came from Carnarvon, and the defendant had no knowledge that it was for the constable. Deputy Chief Constable Prothero said that whether the stipulated area had been traversed or not, the men left their homes for the purpose of getting driik, and were therefore not hona fide travellers. Sir Llewelyn Turner: Is it usual for the police to examine defendants and gets admissions from them ? It appears to me to be very contrary to the spirit of the law if it should be so. Mr Prothero It is not the practice to do so, but on the present occasion the police sergeant simply went to the defendant's house to ascertain under wh it circumstances the constable was supplier with drink. The bench fined the defendant 20s and costs for trading on Sunday, but dismissed tho other summons. The defendant ought, before selling drink on Sunday, to carefully ascertain whether his customers were botlafide travellers. Mr Hughes: It is important that the public should know what their privileges are under the new licensing act. I myself take a walk on Sun- days, and if— Sir Llewelyn Turner: But, Mr Hughes, if you take the walk for the porpose of getting drink. I am afraid that we shall have to fine you too (laughter). Mr Hughes —No, no: I take a Sunday walk for constitutional purposes (laughter). Captain Wynn Griffith said that the bench de- sired it to be generally knewn that to make a certain circuit of three runes on Sundays for the purpose of getting drink could not be an excuse for persons to constitute themselves bonajide truvel- lers, and the magistrates would not consider them as such. Defendant was fined Xi anI costs, the charge of supplying drink to the constable being dis- missed.
DENBIGH. LECTURE.— On Wednesday night Yoahannah El-Karey, an Arabian missionary, delivered a lecture at the Baptist chapel. The admission was free, but a collection was made at the close of the meeting towards supporting the mission with which the lecturer is connected. BALL AT THE P. SYLUM.As stated last week the officers' and attendants' annual ball came off with great success on Thursday last.

The music was sup- pli, d by the bvind of the institution under the leadership of Mr D. Evans.

BANGOR. THE LATE GALEs.One of the raott severe storms which have visited this district for a con- siderable period occurred on Thursday, and con- tinued in all its severity with but little intermis- sion throughout the whole of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. On Saturday and Sunday rain, sleet. hail, and snow were experienced at intervals, and i the wind blew with terrible force, the gust- being sufficiently strong to create alarm in the minds of those exposed to their fury. In several parts of the town property was slightly damag- d, but, foitunately, no accidents of a serious nature to persons or property have been heard of. Not- withstanding the sheltered position of the harbour, considerable apprehension was felt in regard to the safety of the vessels moored off Hirael and Garth, but with a few slight exceptions the alarm proved groundless. Amongst these exceptions we mav mention the Fairlie and Jane Annie Walker, and the Mary Edwardt, which dragged their anchors, and drifted some distance, but happily sustained no serious damage. On Friday the sciJooner Robert Brown, of Dublin, Capt Reynolds, wfs towed into the harbour, having lost several important fails in the gales besides sustaining other severe damages. On Thursday a large barque, bound for Menai Bridge wit1. timber, in tow of a tug, grounded on Gallows Point, and for a tide remained in a dangerous position, but was ultimately got off w'th but little damage. CONCERT -On Friday evening, a splendid con- cert was held in the Peurhyn Hall, for the benefit of Mr Charles G. Davies, Bangor Cathedral. The concert was under the patronage of Lord and Lady Penrhyn, Sir R. L. M. Williams Bulkeley, Bart., Richard Davies, Esq., M.

The entertainment concluded with the National Anthem, sung by Miss Davies, the audience uniting in the chorus. TBA PARTY.- On Thursday afternoon, a treat of the above description was given to the children of the Tabernacle Punchy School by the ladies of the Dorcas Society. The school-room where the tea was served was profusely decorated with bunt- ing, evergreens, and appropriate mottoes, which r, fleeted the greatest credit upon the young ladies who had taken part in this object. About 250 children sat down at the tables, which were ably presided over by Mrs Ator. in Richards, Mrs Web- ster, Mrs Hughes, Plas Llwyd; Mrs Owen. Gre n- wich House; Mrs Jones, High-street; Mrs DOlkws, Miss Davies, Fron Deg Miss Lf-ura Roberts, Miss Emma Roberts, Miss Hannah Griffith, Miss M. E.

In the evening, an interest- ing magic lautem exhibition was given through the kindness of Mr W.

In the course of the evening an I excellent adf?ras? was delivered by the Rev 1). C. Davids, M.A., upon "Singleness ef aim necessary for a worthv lif,. Tiiccws a good attendance of I members and we believe the prospects of the society are very good. The matter to he discussed at the next meeting is, "Is sectarianism advnn- tigeous to religion," and several of the members! have undertaken to contribute papers upon the Oct. Tne annual mceti- g of the BriUsh [-md Foreign Bible Society was Veld on Monday morning in the Penrhyn Hall, the Lord Bishop of Bangor presiding. Amongst these on the platform were Messrs T. Lewis, J. Price, H. Lewis (local secretary), Revs D. Rowlands, M.A., John Williams, W. Dickens Lewis (deputation), D. S. Davies, and J. Feather. 5'he bishop exolained his absence from lest, year's meeting to the circumstance that he was then suf- fering "cinder one of the henvit st and sorest trials and afflictions in wdiich human life could participate. In disseminating the Scriptures, it was not enough that we should subscribe towards providing the prop r machinery by which its trutes might be sown in all lands, but it must be recommended by the conduct and practice of those assisting in those noble efforts which the society sought to ittain. Works were untrue from their beginning and im- potent in tir ir effect unless they were believed in and acted upon by the persons who sought and desired to give force to them. They could not persuade the outdde world that they embraced the Bible as the word of God unless their lives weie regulated and guided by the truths, doctrines, and precepts which that book contained and enforced. Having regard to the infidelity now so apparent in the world-to those thoughts which were net merely written but "publicly uttered—it behoved those loving and believing in the Bible carefully to read the Scriptures, so as to give reasons for the faith that was in them, and above all, to show that what they sought to make acceptable to ethers was truly valued and acted upon in their own hearts, in every thought, word, or action, and governed the whole tenour of their lives before God and before their fellow-men (hear, bear). The report, read by Mr Henry Lewis, showed a balance in hand of X21 13s 101 on the year's operations. On the motion of Mr Ed. Jones, Brynteg, seconded by the Rev D. Rowlands, it was resolved That the accounts as now l'e,d be printed and circulated for the satisfaction of the subscribers." The second resolution, which was moved by the Rev John Williams, and seconded by the Rev W. Dickens Lewis in an excellent and lengthy address was to the effect-" That this meeting acknowledges, with grateful thanks, the goodness of Almighty God in blessing the opera- tions of the British and Foreign Bible Society, and in inclining the hearts of His people to spread the knowledge of His Word through the means of this society." The Rev D. S. Davies proposed, and the Rev J. Feather seconded That the thanks of this meeting be given to the collectors and officers of the Bangor auxiliary for their services during the past year." After the customary vote of thanks to the chairman for presiding the proceedings terminated
PRESIDENT ARTHUR.—The recent annual Message of the President of the United States, to Congresss, contained some declarations which render it worthy of attention, from the peace point of view- In the first place the president declares officially the desirability of further legislative endeavours to arrange for the settlement of international dis- putes, by means of arbitration. In this important utterance he follows the honourable precedents already set by President Grant, President Hayes, and President Garfield, his three predecessors, each of whom formally and explicitly pronounced in favour of the same great practical principle. President Arthur further took care to explain in his message that the postponement by him of the Arbitration Congress of American Governments which had been convened previous to his acces- sion to office, was decided on, not because of any objection, on his part, to the Congress, or to the principle, but because it had not in his view re- ceived, as yet, a sufficient amount of independent consideration and support from the peoples them- selves. He also re endorsed and re-advised a continuacce of a pacific and conciliatory policy, by his Government, towards the Indian tribes, and recommended the enactment of a law to facilitate and protect their tenure of lands, as individual citizens of the United States. Here, then, is one more proof that the principles of peace and inter- national arbitration have really passed into tbe domain of practical Government and diplomacy. Bat it greatly redounds to the honour of the United States that, both through their presidents and their national tran- sactions with other countries, they have taken such a prominent position in this noble movement, b'or the instances wherein the United States have had successful resort either to mediation, or to arbitration, for the settlement of disputes with other nations are as follows :—With Great Britain i'-i 1794; with Spain in 1818; with Great Britain in 1826, also in 1838, and again in 1853; with Portugal in 1850; with Chili in 1858 with Para- guay in 1859 with Canada in 1860 with Peru in 1862; with Great Britain in 1864 again with Great Britain in 1871 en the "Alabama" claims: and again in 1872 on the San Juan dispute; with Spain, as to Cuba, in 1879; with France in 1880; with Costa Rica in 1881 and, in the same year, again with Great Britain, about the Nova Scotia fisheries. Here is a series of seventeen cases of international dispute which the United States have successfully settled by mean p of peaceful reference. And when it is re- i membered how very trivial have been the differ- ences which have, even of later times, led to bloody wars, in cases where there has not been a pacific disposition, it is obvicus that some, if not all, of these seventeen instances might, without such a good national temper on the part of the American people, have plunged them also into miserable conflicts with other countries, resulting at best, in mutual injury and slaughter. The Crimean war arose out of a contemptible squabble between France and Russia in reference to the keys of the Holy Sepulchre at Jerusalem. And the Franco-German war had at least its avowed cause in a mere question of dynastic claim, if not indeed in a mere imaginary disrespect shown by the Emperor of Germany to the French Ambassador. In either instance, had France acted with a little of the common sense of the United States under many similar circumstances, she would have been saved millions ef treasure and scorces of thousands of the lives of her own people.

DEATH OF OAYAIN ALAW. On Tuesday, Mr John Owen (Owain Alaw), ,,11;) was well known throughout both North and South Wales, died at his residence, 'Lorrie ,,t,reet, Chester, in his 63rd year. For many years he had taken an active part in the furtherance of Welsli musical education, and had been chosen an adjudicator at nearly all the fiisteidfodau held in the Princi- pality. He was also a favourite conductor at other choral gatherirgs. His musical compositions were receive i with great favour in Wales. An oratorio entitled "Jeremiah," of which be was the author, elicited ve-y favoureble comments in Welsh musical circles, and a second edition of the work has been published. The deceased had latterly conducted the musical services at the Wtlsh Church at Chester. As a musical instructor he was^ very successful, some of his pupils having attained prominent positions as singers or instru- mentalists. Madame Edith Wynne'was one of his pupils. ^^Tl HIn 'iup.I
EVADING THE LIVERPOOL POLICE OVER TEN YEARS. SMART CAPTURE IN ANGLESEY. Colonel Thomas, chief constable of Anglesey, a few days since received information that a person was staying in the village of Abeiffraw, oome few miles from Holyhead, who had, it was alleged, absconded from Liverpool in May, 1872. Accord ingly the police constable statioued at the place was informed of this fact, and the result was that in a very short time after the information Lad been received the man was arrested whilst resting himatlfintha Prince Llewtlm Hoie1, Aberffraw. He was immediately convey(d to the Ty-croes Railway Station, where one of the Liverpool detectives was waiting for the purpose of convey- ing prisoner to Liverpool. Very tew, if any per- sons, were aware ot this strange capture, which could not have been better planned or more quietly carried out. It appears that the man was ckarged at the Liverpool Police Couit, in May, 1872, with stealing a large quantity of cotton, and was admitted to bail to appear at the auarter sessions. He, however, absconded, and from that time to the present had carefully evaded the police, though vigilant efforts were put forward to arrest him. For the past two years he resided in the Prince Llewelyn Hotel, Aberffraw, where he seems to have lived in luxurious style. Not only was he the possessor of a fine yacht, but was negotiat ing for the purchase of the hotel in which he resided, when his apprehension caused an abrupt termina- tion to this little business transaction. ———
THE MOON AND HER INFLUENCE ON THE WEATHER. In all lunar affections allowance must 1. e made for retardation or acceleration, the retarding force being in operation while tie moon goes from syzygy (new or ftill) to quadrature and the acceler- ating while she goes from quadrature syzygy; hence the full effect of a lunar aspect is sometimes noi felt until 36 hours have elapsed (as in the case of the ocean tides), the time of retardation varying with circumstances. When this is not taken into account, the system cannot be properly worked. To give an illustration, in Mr Proctor's paper, "Knowledge," a member of the Royal Astro- nomical Society in February last endeavoured to show that no reliance could be placed in lunar influence on the weather, by giving the result of his observations during three months, in which atmospheric changes only rarely coincided with lunar aspect; but the fact was, no allowance had been made for retardation or acceleration, and on a careful scanning of the dates in question it was found that the change came almost invariably within the time due. This shows the danger of condemning a system on a superficial knowledge of its principles. Of course, when the barometer is exceptionally high or low, the change may be only threatened, or very slight, being counter- acted by other, and for the time more potent influences. Before leaving the subject, it may be interesting to give the following extract bearing on lunar influence from an article on "Temperature," by M. de Parville in the Journal des Debate of August, 1881:—"A very long series of observations has also shown that the moon, which passes every month from one hemisphere to the other, influ- ences the direction of the great atmospheric cur- rents. The changes in those currents in conse- quence of the prevailing moisture or dryness, are intimately connected with the relative position for the time being of the sun and moon. The distance of the moon from the equator, that is the in. clination of the moon's path to the plane of the equator, varies every year, passing from a maximum toamlnmium limit; and the meteorological character of a series of years appears to be m, ainly depen- dent upon the charge of inclination when those extreme limits have been touched. Observations prove that the rainy years, the cold winter and hot summers, return periodically and coincide with certain declinations of the moon. In our latitudes the rainy years occur when the moon's declination has touched its extreme limits of 28, 26, or 18 degrees respectively. They are separated from each other usually by periods of about three and then six years. Consequently dry summers occur in the years when the moon's greatest declination is about the mean, i., 21 and 23 degrees. ORION.

The reason why so many are unable to take Cocoa. is that the varieties commonly sold are mixed with starch under the plea of rendering them soluble; while really making them thick, heavy, and indigestible. This may be easily detected, for if Cocoa thickens in the cup tt vroves the addition of starch.

NORTHERN WELSH FOOTBALL AS- SOCIATION. BANGOR r. CARNARVON.—These old opponents met last Saturday at Bangor in the seco-id tie for the above cup, when a good match ended in a victory for the home team by six goals to none. The ball was started at 3 p.m., the visitors choos- ing to defend the town goal. The afternoon was fine, but owing to the heavy rain which fell in the morning the ground was very soft asid slippery, and in addition there were large pools ot water here and there out of which it wes very difficult to get the ball. 'At first some even play took place, but about teD minutes after the start Robert Wil- liams made a run, and being tackled by the Car- narvon backs, passed the ball to D. Jones who centred, when Smith sent it whizzing between the posts. Encouraged by this success, the home forwards played vigorously, aud being kept well fed by their backs Smith was again fortunate enough to head the bali through making a second score. Carnarvon now had some hard luck, a good shot by Newton going over the bar. Their left wing then ht d a lun, which was ended by J. Jones depositing Cwen on his back, and allowing the leather to roll behind. The Ban- gor left wing then had a run, and.after a struggle with Ingleton, Smith had a fhet at goal, and T. M. Jones charging the custcdian over a third score was effected. After this several good shots were made at the visitors' etronghcli, Williams saving one by giving a corner kick, whi h, however, was not further utilized. A gecd throw in by Charlia Jones was a'co ineffective, being allowed to pass through without fcoucoiug anyone. Just before the call ^f half-titne, Williams allowed a good shot by W. Lewis to sl;p through his hands, thus scor- ing a fourth goal. Ends were now changed, and the visitors' left and right wings made some fine runs, but the defence proved too good in fact, the Bangor goalkeeper was not called upcn during the whole game to defend his charge, though upon several occasions he ran out in his anxiety to obtain a kick after a go-d passing run between Owen and Piic% the ball was fouled nea" the Bangor goa", and from the free kick Newton made a fine attempt tocore, his shot h .wever, as befcre, being too high. The home backs now showed fine defence, F. R. Jones and John Williams, especially showing good form. After a IUU along the right wing by R. Williams, the ball was passed to D. Jones, who put it through, making a fifth goal. A free kick was claimed scou after- ward. the goalkeeper having made a ran with the ball, but it was net ai owed, the same fate befalling a score by J. Jones, which was disallowed on the ground that R. Williams was off side when he passed the ball. A good shct by W. Lewis again proved successful. Though Carnar- von played up most determinedly to the end, they were not able to make any impression up: o the home defence. For the visitors the backs ail played well, R. Newton, especially playing a splendid game, while some flue urns were ni ;do bv their forwards. The home team to a man played well, the re-appearance of John Jones, at back appear- ing to instill them with a good deil of the clash for which they used to be notea. Teams —Bangor E.
