BANGOR On Friday evening the Rev. H. C. Williams (of Corwen) delivered an address to the stu- dents of Baptist College on "The Ethics of the Fourth Gospel." This was the last of a series of lectures on "The Christ and the Fourth Gospel." Principal Morris proposed a vote of thanks to the lecturer, which was seconded by Dr O. Davies and carried. POLICE INSPECTION. On Monday, the Hon Captain O. G. Legge, H.M.'s In- spector, attended at Bangor Police Station for the purpose of inspecting the police force of the division. There was a good muster, under the charge of Inspector Rowlands, Col. Ruck, the chief constable being also present. ELECTRIC LIGHT. Referring to the settlement of the lighting controversy "Lighting" says:—"Upon the victory of their cause Dr Grey Edwards and the other advocates of electric lighting are cordially to be congratulated. Rarely even in these days of militant Town Councils, has the fight between the friends of progress and. those who stand for gas or for inaction been so prolonged and so severe as in the case of Ban- gor. The history of the bond, and the un- worthv use that the Gas Party attempted to make of it form something quite unpre- cedented in municipal annals. It must not be supposed that the Council consented to go forward without something in the nature of a guarantee to replace the well-intentioned but illegal bondL Signed agreements to take over 30,000 units per annum were first hand- ed in, exclusive of verbal promises to take some 18,000 units more. There was there- fore no decent excuse for further delav. The Lighting Committee are inviting offers for 'free wiring:' another hopeful indication that the intention is to work the electric supply system on business-like lines." BILLIARD MATCH. On Wednesday evening, at the Castle Hotel, the return match between teams representing Bangor and Beaumaris was decided. When the home team visited Beaumaris they dealt a severe blow to their opponents by winning all the games, the scores being: Bangor, 900; Beaumaris, 438. Much interest was centred in the present meeting, and the favourite hostelry was crowded with keen supporters of both sides. There were only two of the visitor-, who made a good stand, viz., Messrs T. Pearce and G. Frost, and as a result those :mes proved the most ex- citing. The following was the result: Bangor: A. Hughes, 150: J. G. Jones, 150: H. Parry, 150; W. Parry, 150: Ed- win Rowlands. 150; Ambrose Jones, 150; total, 900. Beaumnrs: R. Thompson, 75 G. Frcst. 109; J. Owen. 67; T. J. Wil- liams, 50: F. Gearv, 60; T. Pearce, 123; total, 484. It will be observed that the visitors scored 36 more points on the pre- sent occasion. At the conclusion of the match the Brothers Parry played an exhi- bition game of 200 up, which was greatly admired. PETTY SESSIONS. On Tuesday, before Messrs Thomas Lewie (chairman), J. E.
