r DEDICATION SERVICES AT BANGOR CATHEDRAL. DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW ORGAN. The dedication of the new organ, which has been building for several months past, took place on Tuesday. A short office for the formal celebration followed matins in the morning, the dedicatory prayers being read by the bishop. At eleven o'clock there was a choral celebration of Holy Commun- ion. The dean was the celebrant, assisted by Archdeacons Pryce and Williams,and the minor canor-. The Rev C. E. T. Griffith, M.A., (vicar of Trevethin, Pontypool), preached from I. Peter iv., 11, and Mr West- take Morgan presided at the organ. A con- gregation which filled every seat in the sacred edirice assembled in the afternoon to listen to the organ recital by Sir Walter Parrat, Mus.Doc. (organist of St. George's Chapel, W insor). The demands for tickets had been very great. The programme of the recital consisted of Overture "Dtho" (Handel), Andante Religioso" (Liszt)' u Fantasa and fugue in G minor" (J. S. Bach), "Evening Chimes" (Wilm), pastor- ale from "The Light of the World" (Sulliv- an), "Sonata No. V." (Guilmant), Basso ostinato in quintuple time (Arensky), "Im- perial March (Elgar). When one of the closing items on the programme was being given, a shriek from the middle of the church caused much commotion among the congregation. It was found that it came from a gentleman who had been seized with a fit, which caused him to bleed profusely from the nose. A large number of the con- gregation were awe stricken, and stood up until the gentleman was removed, but there was no break in the recital. For the even- ing, Stainer's oratorio "The Daughter of Jairus" had been selected for performance, preceded by In the City of the Lord (J. T. Field), taken from the "Bangor Ponti- fical." There was a surpliced choir of 100, assisted by about forty ladies, the cathedral choir being augmented by contingents from Christ Church, Carnarvon, and Christ Church, Llanfairfechan. Sir Walter Par- ratt presided at the organ, the principals being Madame Clara Leighton, Mr William Davies (St. Paul's Cathedral), and Mr Charles James (Bangor Cathedral). It is really less than eighteen months since the movement for restoring the organ was initiated by an offering of t250 by an anonymous contributor, provided that a more elaborate scheme than that origin- ally contemplated was carried out. Ac- cordingly, the dean gave to the project his most untiring support, and Mr T. West- lake Morgan, the organist, issued appeals broadcast for financial aid, and it is mainly to the persistency displayed by him that the steady growth of the fund is to be attri- buted. Altogether, a total of £ 1630 has been subscribed, but considerably more will have to be provided before the expense is completely covered. Messrs Hill and Son are the builders, and the new Bangor organ in addition to being the largest in the Princ- ipality, will be the fourth largest built by that firm for cathedrals, the other three being at Westminster, York, and Peter- borough. The specification, spread over four manuals and pedals, was prepared by Air Westlake Morgan, who has incorpor- ated the pipes of the old instrument in the new. Tubular pneumatic action has been applied throughout to the manuals, pedal, and drawstop work, there being some three or four miles of tubing consumed in the undertaking. The French pitch (diapason normal) has been adopted. The organ is blown by hydraulic power. The console, which is detached in the north transept, is fitted with diagonal jambs at an angle of about 45 degrees, with four patent desk- hooks a starter for the engines, and an ad- justable stocl to screw up and down for the convenience of all performers. The man- uals, pistons, and stop handles are of the best s°hd ivory the pedal-boaxd according to the Royal College of Organists recom- mendations. There are eighty seven regis- • S749 S1?ty foUr shaking stops £ d tIt P1,P!u ;tm°ng sPeckl f^tures may be noticed the three species of vox celeste— one of gambas tuned sharp, another of dulcianas tuned sharp, and a third of dulcianas tuned flat. It is also possible to obtain simultaneous crescendo of some twenty five stops.

THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH ONLY. In giving testimony, it is specially im- pressed upon the mind of the witness that "the Truth," "the whole Truth," and "noth- ing but the Truth" must be given. Partially concealed facts are worse than untruths. A story half told may condemn, that if finished would justify. Miss Janet S. Dale, Rich- mond place, Irvine, was guided by this in I giving testimony, which makes it not only interesting, but valuable. She says: -"I am now quite better, and have much pleas- ure in stating, that I am thoroughly con- vinced that I owe my present state of good health to Warner's Safe Cure. While ten- dering my sincere thanks I shall only add that it shall be my earnest endeavour to ac- quaint my friends of the benefits to be de- rived from this remedy." This honest and straightforward testi- mony cannot fail to impress everyone of the 1 importance of same.
PWLLHELI. MR SOLOMON ANDREWS.—To-day (Thursday) the Town Council will bestow upon Mr Solomon Andrews the freedom of the borough, in acknowledgment of his beneficence and the great work he has done in developing the town and district.

Jones, Penrhyndeu- draeth, has been appointed trained assis- tant master at the Boys School. Mr Jones's testimonials were of a high class. COUNTY MAGISTRATES COURT.— Wednesday, before Messrs R. Carreg (chairman), Owen Evans, and O. Ll. J. Evans. MASTER AND SERVANT.—David Thomas, Abererch, represented by Mr J. T. Howells, claimed R2 9s from Henry Shan- non, Llwynrhudol, for whom Mr E. R. Da- vies appeared. For a time complainant, who was a servant with defendant, was sat- isfied with the food he received. Subse- quently the food was altered.—Complain- ant said I went to Shannon's service in March. The agreement was weekly. The food was satisfactory. I made another agreement with the defendant, under which I was to get breakfast, dinner, tea, and supper. Breakfast was given me 1.30 p.m. It was sometimes tea, and other times dry bread, and warm butter milk. I raised po- tatoes on Sunday once. I felt that I was growing weak owing to the bad food I got.- Cross-examined: I left of my own accord. Shannon gave me a suit of clothes, and Mrs Shannon two shirts. They were given me a fortnight or so before I left. They also gave my father a coat. I did not get enough food, but I did not ask for more, nor did I tell Mr or Mrs Shannon that I did not get sufficient food. Mrs Shannon did not tell me when I returned from Penmaen, that she would not keep me if I was again so long on an errand. I sometimes had four meals, and other times only two. I told Mrs Shannon that I would have to leave or starve.—Mr Davies showed how kindly the boy had been treated by the defendant, and pointed out that he never complained that he was not properly treated.—Dismissed. ANOTHER APPLICATION.—Mr E. R. Davies said that the Bench were acquainted with the case of a certain man and wife. Mrs Lloyd had bought her husband's stock from the official receiver, and subsequently the husband bought some of the stock from Z7' her. Sine ethen he had refused to give any- thing towards her maintenance. Conse- quently she was really starving.—Mr Wil- liam George appeared for Thomas Lloyd, the defendant.—Mr Cledwyn Owen (the I clerk) said that the case did not come under the section.—Mr Davies She is wilfully neglected where she is. Her husband does not go near her.—The Clerk still upheld his interpretation of the section.—Mr George said that the woman had an establishment at Bontnewydd. She had left him of her own accord.—Mr Davies wanted proof.—Mr George proceeded to argue against the ap- plication. The woman was simply perse- cuting her husband, who lived at Castell Bach.-Mr Davies said that the woman was really starving, and the law met the case as stated by him.—The Bench were of opinion that the woman had her own remedy. She could go to the workhouse.—Mr Davies took the suggestion of the Bench. I SURETIES OF THE PEACE.—Jane Wil- liams, Llannor, sued Henry Jones, Llannor, for sureties of the peace. Complainant said that the defendant had called her by foul names, and abused her. She was afraid of him. Mr Arthen Owen, who appeared for the defendant, said that his client simply went for his cow and the complainaiub en- deavoured to prevent him. He pushed her aside.—Dismissed. BOFD OVER. Elizabeth Radnor, Abererch, claimed protection to her child, Mary Radnor, who had been threatened by Catherine Parry, a neighbour. Mr W. George was for the defendant. Plaintiff said that the defendant came out of the house with a knife in her hand threatening to stab Mary Radnor.—Both parties were bound over to keep the peace. THE ROADS.—Superintendent Jones reported that he had visited the roads com- plained of a month ago, and had seen a very great improvement in them.—Mr Ower Evans said that it was a pity that after the roads were well repaired they went torn again by threshing machines which wet. carelessly taken along the roads. wlHZ" l8> "I, dri'J t0 be spared with Wheatleys Hop Bitters for its refre.-hino- qmd.ties and excellent flavour.

The average attend- ance was 118.1 as compared with 116.4 for same period of last year. The report of the Garth mixed school showed that the aver- age attendance for last month was 171.2. The head teacher stated that the attend- ance was far from satisfactory in spite of every effort made to increase the attendance Out of seven boys who presented themselves at the intermediate school examination, three had pased, and out of two girls who sat, one passed. The Board ordered that some alterations, asked to be made by the head teacher, should be done. It was re- ported that the number on the books at the Glanadda School for last month was 249, and that the average attendance was 195.7, as compared with 170.1 for the same Period last vear. At the infants' school the I average attendance for last month was 183 The Committee appointed by the Board to make the necessary arrangement for furn- ishing the Rechabite Hall to hold the cen- tral classes, reported that the repairs were being carried cut, and that the place was now ready to hold the classes. The clerk was instructed to send a circular to the head teachers of the various schools in the local- ity, pointing out the advantages of the cen- tral classes, of which Mr J. E. Jones, late of Preston Grammar School, had been apr pointed head master. The Clerk read a letter from the architect with regard to some alterations torbe made at St Pa-til-, School, and a letter to the same effect was received from the builder. It was resolved that the infants' school should be cleared as soon as possible, so that the children °u i not run any risk whilst attending school during building operation. On the application of Miss Devonald, the hon. sec., of the cookery classes, it was resolved to draw out a cheque for jE15 in order to pay the salary due to Miss Williams, the in- structress. It was stated that the seat of rS f 7unne ^.0I16S on the Board of Govern- ors o he Friars School had been declared vacant, and the Board resolved to re-elect 1 ,?nes" The committee appointed to ma e e necessary arrangements for form- classes reported that these -,nll be re-s arted qij 5th of October, when Principal Price, chairman of the Board, is expected to deliver the inaugural address. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The fort- nigtly meeting of the Board was held on Friday, under the presidency of Mr Hugh Thomas (chairman). THE POOR LAW CONFERENCE.—The Chairman reported upon the visit paid by the representatives of the guardians to the Llangollen Conference.—The Clerk (Mr R. B. Evans) stated that the Conference consid- ered the administration of out-relief to be on the improving side but they believed that when out-relief was given it should be ample and not in small doles. There was a great improvement in the management of the workhouses and in the nursing of the sick. Mr T. W. Williams, the vice-chairman of the Carnarvon Union, had read an excellent paper on the administration of the poor laws, in which he advocated the transfer of overseers'duties to the parish councils. A discussion followed on the collection of rates, and it became evident that the practice as regards the appintment of collectors differed very much in the Carnarvon Union to what it did at Bangor. In Carnarvon the rates were collected by the assistant overseer ap- pointed by the parishes, whilst in Bangor and Beaumaris, in most instances, the col- lectors were appointed by the guardians. On the second day of the conference, a discus- sion took place, on the education of vagrant children.—The thanks of the guardians were accorded to the chairman and clerk.

CARNARVON AND ANGLESEY RIFLE ASSOCIATION. SHOOTING COMPETITION AT CONWAY The first meeting of the newly-formed Association was held at Conway on Satur- day last, and was favoured with the bright- est conditions of weather. The officers present were Lt. Col. Charles Rees, com- manding the 3rd V.B. RoyalWelch Fusiliers Majors P. S. Hughes, and G. R. Ashley; Captain and Adjutant H. H. Were; Cap- tains O. Thomas, A. Sarson, C. E. Breese, R. H. Mils-Roberts, W. H. Edwards, and C. T. Allard, together withSurgeon-Captains R. A.Prichard, and T. L. K. Davies, and Lieuts. Marsted, Henderson, Jones, Wil- liams, J. R. Prichard, Menzies, W. Fox Russell, R. R. Williams, Surgeon-Lieut. E. T. Hughes and Qr. Master Farrington. The competitors numbered some 170 of all ranks. The day opened with bright sun- shine, and a Northerly wind of considerable force, which increased in strength during the day. The shooting arrangements had been carefully attended to and were satis- factory in every particular. The Sergeants of the permanent staff of the 4th Battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers acted as Registers, keepers and markers, whilst the duties of. honorary secretaries were fulfilled by Major Ashley and Captain Breese, with Captain, and Adjutant Were as umpire. Firing started about 8.30 a.m., and continued, briskly up to the luncheon interval, whieh took place at two p.m. The luncheon was served in the officers' mess structure, and a large and representative number of guests partook of Col. Rees and the offictrs' hos- pitality. The band of the regiment was. in attendance, and played a selection of music daring lunch. Shooting was resumed about 3 p.m. and concluded soon after half- past four. The chief feature in connection with the shooting was tbe :-dmirable filing by company teams of 10 men in the-volley competit-oll. In this competition Cainar- von and Llanrwst teams tied for premier position, with the unusual and magnificent scores of 50 hits each, each team tJiua secur- ing a highest possible number of hits. The first prize was ultimately awarded to Car- uarvon, the value of whose hits sightly exceeded that of Llanrwst. The Port- madoc team gained third prize with 41 bits. The firing of teams in the extended order competition" was also very good, though not on the same high levei as the volley firing. The scoring of the Conway team was, however, very creditable, and they earned a well merited victory. The individual filing at 200 yards did not result in very big scores, with the exception of a beautiful 33. out of a possible 35, put on by Private Bennett, of the Llanberis Company. At 500 yards the strong wind and dazzling sunshine played havoc with the marksmen generally, and as a result the best scores ruled low. The same atmospheric conditions, con- siderably intensified, were experienced by the few marksmen who bad qualified,to fire at 600 yards, by the aggregate they had made at the two.previous ranges. Mary a hopeful score was spoilt, and, in some in- stances, the competitors eveu failed to find the target, which appeared more like a huge blaokblob than the cleanly paired plate with well defined bulls-eye it in reality was A few scores cf 20 and upwards were, therefore, deemed to be exceedingly satisfactory, and in every case obtained for the fortunate marksman a place iij, the prize list. The presentation took plitee at 5.30, whea Col. Rees, in a few well chosen and graceful remarks, called Mrs W. A. Darhishire to perform what appeared from her demeanour to be a most agreealitle ceremony. Mrs Darbishire re- ferred to the unavoidable absence of the Lord Lieutenant and Mrs Greaves, and statsd how sorry they were not to be pre- selÜ, She congratulated Col. Rees and the battalion generally upon the good results of the day's shooting, and humourously re- marked that she had herself witnessed a few bulls eyes scored. At the conclusion of the prize giving, hearty cheers were given for Mrs Darbisbire, followed by others for the energetic and popular Colonel. The prizes offered for competition were of an unusually valuable character. The Silver Challenge trophies presented by the leading gentlemen of CILrnarvnshire and Anglesey were both costly pnd beautiful in design and workmanship. That the meeting was an nnequivocal success there can be no doubt, and the enthusiasm and esprit de corps manifested amongst the competitors Nas sufficient testimony of the gratitude felt by them for the munificence of the supporters to the funds of the association.
