CORRESPONDENCE. THE LATE POACHING AFFRAY AT BETHESDA. To the Editor of the OBSERVER AND EXPRESS. Shjt,—My attention has been called to a para- graph in the North Wales Observer ancl Express of January 23, 1885, which contains such a mis- leading statement about the memorial recently addressed to Lord Penrhyn by some of his quarry- ^en, tnat I must request you to publish this note, together with the annexed letter, which was writ- ten by me on January 13th, in answer to the aforesaid memorial.—Yours faithfully, G. DOUGLAS-PENNANT. Wicken, Stoney Stratford, February 8, 1885. Wicken, Stoney Stratford, January 13, 1885. Dear Wyatt,—The memorial addressed to Lord penrhyn, and forwarded by you at his request, for my decision thereon, having been carefully considered by me, I cannot help feeling regret that 80 many persons should have expressed sympathy with the perpetrators of what, at the trial (vide report in North Wales Chronicle, Dec. 27, 1884), 'ra,. described by Mr Louis, the counsel for the prisoners, as "a most dastardly offence." I deeply regret that men employed in the Pen- rhyn quarry should have been capable of an offence whlch included not only ingratitude to their em- ployer, but savage brutality to those appointed to see that respect for the law was enforcsd. The men who have been found guilty of that offence may either hare not considered, or else have chosen to ignore its possible consequences to themselves and their families, but that is no ex- tenuation of their fault. For the benefit of those ^ho think that the fine imposed by the magis- trates is a heavy punishment in this case, I coiii- ?*end to their notice the report in the London daily papers, January 10, 1885. of the trial on the Previous day at the Surrey sessions, where the prisoner (who had his arm broken in the struggle) a somewhat similar case, was sentenced to twelve months' imprisonment for assaulting and causing bodily harm to the police in the execution of their duty." In this case I feel convinced that I am only studying the real interests of the order-loving and law-abiding portion of the community in declin- Ing to comply with the terms of the memorial. Yours truly, Ck DOUGLAS-PENNANT. À. Wyatt, Esq., Tanybryn, Bangor.
