University of Wales. The annual ertra-collegiate meeting of the Court of the University of Wales was held at the County Hall, Wrexham, on Thursday. There was a large attendance. Dr Isambard Owen, senior deputy-chan- cellor, presided'. The Mayor of Wrexham (Mr Thomas Jones) attended to welcome the eeurt to the borough on behalf of the Corporation. The court passed a resolution congratula- ting the Chancellor (the Prince of Wales) on his recent escape from assassination. Resolutions were also passed pfacing on record high appreciation of the valuable services rendered to education by the late Principal Edwards and the late Dr Edward Jones. It was announced that during the ab- sence of Lieutenant-General Sir James Hills- Johnes at the seat of war, Mr Cadwaladr Davies had been appointed deputy-trea- surer. « Dr Isambard Owen and the Hon. George Kenyon were re-elected senior and junior deputy-chancellors respectively. The following were appointed on the standing executive committee: Lady Verney, Professor Snape, Mr CadwaladrDa- vies, Mr D. Brynmor Jones, Q.C., M.P., Dr R. D. Roberts, Mr Owen Owen, Pro- fessor Dobbie, Mr A. C. Humphreys-Owen, M.P., Mr D. E. Jones, Colonel Pryce-Jones, the Rev Ll. Edwards, Professor A. L. Selby, and Mr William Edwards. The following, were elected members of the Central Welsh Board: Mr F. T. Dodd, Festiniog; Mr T. W. Phillips, New- port; and Mr R. E. Hughes, Her Ma- jesty's Inspector, Swansea. The Senior Deputy-Chancellor said they had received a legacy for the foundation of open scholarships. The legacy came from a native of Denbighshire, Mr Pryce Davies, who had spent the greater part of his life in Leeds. The scholarships would be open to the world. The sum of about 25500 would be the probable amount that would accrue to the university from the legacy. The report .of the standing executive com- mittee stated that the estimate of expendi- ture in 1900-1901 was 2"86. The esti- mated erpenditure for the year 1899-1900 was 94737, of which the Treasury provided R4000, and there was a deficit on the year's work of C160. The estimate had been be- fore the Lords Commissioners of the Trea- sury, who had replied that they felt justi- fied in asking Parliament to continue the grant at the sum of L4000 for the ensuing financial year, but that the university must not anticipate a further continuance at that figure. The Mayor of Wrexham entertained the members of the court to luncheon at the Wynnstay Arms Hotel, and amongst those who spoke at the after-proceedings were the mayor, Sir Robert Cunliffe, Bart., the Hen George Kenyon, and the president of the court.
