FOOTBALL. INTER-COUNTY MATCH. On Wednesday afternoon, in fine weather, and before a good gate, a match, arranged by the North Wales Coast Football Association, between representatives of Car- narvonshire and Flintshire, was played on the Bangor ground. The teams were as advertised with the exception that Gordon Jones did not play. The Carnarvonshire team were the superior eleven in the first half, and a couple of minutes after the start Sam Roberts sent up to Walter Lewis, who Sot in a lonely centre, which Thomas (Bangor) eaded down in the goal mouth, and Glass fumbling the ball, Hedly Bevan (Llandudno) sprang in and safely netted the ball. About twenty minutes later, after dashing play on both sides, but during which the superiority always remained in the Carnarvonshire men, Buckland placed a corner right in the mouth of the goal, and it. would have gone harmlessly in if Roberts (Carnarvon) had not jumped up and headed it into the net. In the second half, play was more even, the Flintshire representatives scoring twice in brilliant fashion, but the Carnarvonshire men, putting on a spurt, also scored twice, once as the result of a magnificent effort by Webb, which Bevan forced in after Glass had cleared, and a second time as the result of a superb return by Ned Hughes, who, from the middle of the field, dropped the ball under the bar, and the ball and Glass were inatantly tumbled into the net. Both Glass and Alec did splendid work. The best ,back on the field was Lloyd, of Flint, while among the forwards the honours were about equally divided between Webb, Walter Lewis, Bevan, Morgan Owen, and the Flintshire left. Buckland and Ned Hughes were the best of the halves. THE NORTH WALES COAST CUP. LLANDUDNO SWIFTS v. BANGOR. The final tie was played at St. Asaph on Satarday. In the first half Llandudno kicked against the wind and showed best form. At half time neither sides h d scored. On chang- ing ends the Swifts quickly put in four goals, and before the whistle sounded added another, running out easy winners by 5 to 1. VAYNOL PARK v. MENAI BRIDGE. Exceptional interest was manifested in the return match of the above club on Saturday last, at Vaynol Park. The first match was a win for the Menai Bridge club by two goals to one, after a good game, both clubs being fully represented. The defence 0f the home team was much stronger than it has been, having the assistance of Willie Wil- liams (late full back of the Bangor F.-C.}. The match was full of excitement, both teams playing up to their best. The home team who were at half-time by,one goal to nil managed to run out winners of a good game by tw.o goals to nil. This is he first victory the Vaynolites can claim over their rivals, out of five engagements. The best man on the field was Ellison (late White Star Wanderers), who waf, plaving right full at fijnst and then changed to centre half for the Bridgeites, The home team have a good record .so far, having .played 14 matches, seven have been won, five lost and drawn two, scoring 31 goals against 21. The referee last (Saturday WAS Mr £ Lloyd Williaaue, Bangor.
A WELSH LAND BILL. The committed of the iWelsih party ap- pointed to draft a Welsh Land Bill have, ex- cept on one important point, practically com- pleted their labours. The bill has been printed. It is entitled, "A Bill to amend tho law relating to the Tenure of Land in Wales and Monmouthshire," and is backed by Messrs Vaughan Daviesi (who obtained the premier place in the ballot, and lias, therefore, the privilege of bringing in the bill), Brynmor Jones, Herbert Roberts, Roes Davies, Lloyd-George, and Lloyd Morgan. The following outline accurately describes the provisions of the bill. It provides that the bill (if it becomes law) and the Agricultural Holdings Aot, 1888, and the Counifcy Courts Act, 1888, shall be cited as the Land Tenure (Wales) Act, 1897, and it shall apply only to Wales, which, of course, includes Monmouth- shire. After an interpretation of terms, the bill deals with the Land Court to be estab- lished under the bill. which M to be held in the county court of the district in which the holding, or the larger part of it, is situate. The jurisdiction conferred by the Act shall be exercised by an agricultural judge, having; the powers and duties imposed upon county court judges under the Aot of 1888. In every county court office in Wales, a. tenants' hold- ings-book is to be kept recording judgments and orders under the Act. The judgment or order of an agricultural judge shall be final, and on being recorded in the holdings-book shall have the effect of a county court judg- ment, subject to appeal on points of law to the county court judge of the district. The appointment of agricultural judges is vested in the Board of Agriculture, who shall select from a. number of fit persons submitted by the County Councils. Within three months of the passing of the Act, every Council shall draw up a list of no fewer than 10 wr more than 15 fit persons to be agricultural judges. The judges must be not less than 30 nor more than 65 years of age, possessing a sound and practical knowledge of farming in their special district, and aible to speak the Welsh language. Their remuneration is to be deter- mined by the Board of Agriculture, approved by the Treasury, and paid out of moneys provided by Parliament. The)and court may use the ordinary county courthouse free of charge, and all public elementary school. The judge is to report every year to rth Board. The Treasury is to fix the fees, and the costs shall be in the discretion of the oourt. (Either party may be represented by counsel or solicitor, or any adult person no- minated by either party in writing. After the commencement of the Act, every contract of tenancy under the Act shall become a judicial tenancy. Notices 10 quit shall not operate except by mutual consent, and the tenancy shall only be determined in the man- ner provided for judicial tenancies under the Act. Upon application, the court shall fix the fair rent of the holding in question, and settle reasonable conditions of tenancy, which will then be entered in the tenants' holdings- book, and thereafter determine the relations of the parties to the contract. The judg- ment shall operate for five rears from the Michaelmas following the date of the judg- ment, and no variation shall be made for th<vfc period except by mutual consent. Unless there is an application for refixing the rent, the judgment shall operate for another five years, and so on for further similar periods. The principles for settling reasonable condi- tions and fair rents are set forth. No judi- cial tenancy shall be determined unlass the parties agree to determine, or the tenant shall fail to play the fair rent fixed within 21 days, or commit a breach oíf the reasonable conditions. All contracts inconsistent with the terms and conditions of a judicial tenancy shall be null and void. Provision is made for recasting agreements and for arbitrating and recasting the award. The provisions for recovery of possession íbv a landlord and for partial resumption of a (holding for iimprove- .met8 naturally form the most important sections of the bill, and the section giving the power of resumption "by the landlord is t le one around which present difficulties ap- pear to revolve. On this point, Mr Vausrhan Danes has strong views, which the draughts- man of the T bill has not altogether taken into account. Upon the determination of a ju- dicial tenancy, the Agricultural Holdings Act shall apply as ill the ease of any tenancy to which It extends.
DENBIGHSHIRE AND THE INDIAN FAMINE. —At Ruthin Police Court, on Mon- day, the clerk of the peace for Denbighshire (Mr LI. Adams) read a letter from the Lord Mayor of London to The Lord-lieutenant of Denbighshire (Colonel Cornwallis West) gratefully acknowledging the contribution from the county to the Indian faimine relief fund, which was collected under the Lord- lieutenant'? auspices. The total contribu- tion amounted to £326, of which j560 came from the town of Ruthin.
THE ROYAL WELSH YACHT CLUB. ANNUAL MEETING AT CARNAR- VON.. The annual meeting of the members waa held at the Club House, Carnarvon, on Wed- nesday. Sir I^lewelyn Turoetr .(Nikw-cotr),- modore) presided over a numerous attend- ance, among those preset being the Rea.r- Commodore, Captain Wynn Griffith, Mr J. E. Greaves. Glangwna; Mr G. R. Reea ftrea- surer), and Mr C. A. Jones (hon. sec.). The recommendations of the sailing com- mittee witch regard to the date of this yeasfs regatta were endorsed, Who customary ar- rangements being made with the Royal An- glesey Club. It was agreed that it would be desirable that the second day's regatta be left entirely to the town committee, who would have to carry out the arrangements on their own responsibility. The balance-sheet and statement of ac- counts for the year were adopted. The sail- ing and house committees were reappointed. The re-gatta. prize list was left in the hands of the sailing committee. The club having been established 50 years ago, it watf decided, on the motion of the honorary secretary, to commemorate the Club Jubilee by holding a banquet. Mr Panton Priestley, Criecieth, and Mr Leet, Northenden, were elected members. Mr C. A. Jones tendered his resignation of the office of honorary secretary, after 26 yeaN service. He took advantage of the op- portunity to submit a few statistic8 showing wi the position of the olub, both when he took office and at the present time. In 1871, there were 43 members, of whom only 28 remained on the books. At present, the members num- bered 190. He was glad to see that the nwv" oer who had seconded his appointment- Captain Wynn Griffith-still well and hearty amongst them. and taking an active interest in the affairs of the club. In 1871, the total receipts were £272. The ordinary expendi- ture was 288; the Tegatta expenses being C169. The balance-sheet just issued showed that the total receipts were 26W; general expenditure, £ 3o5 ;i regatta expenditure M2. He was sorry that owing t^ ill health, Mr Jackson had been unable this veat-for the first time for 26 years—to audit the balance-sheet. He thanked the members of the club J:"Ir the invariable kindness he had experienced at their hands. Mr Bugbird said he thought it would be the unanimous wish of the members that Mr Jones should be asked to reconsider his de- cision, and to continue as honorary secretary. The welfare of the club undoubtedly depend- ed very greatly upon the efforts of such an xmuortant official. He had! always hear;> yachtsmen visiting Carnarvon ispeak moat highly of Mr Jones's kindness and courtesy. He moved that a hearty vote of thanks loo- tendered to Mr Jones for his valuable service during the past 26 years, and that he be asked to withdraw his resignation. Mr Douglas Jones seconded. As a yachts- man he visited from time to time most of the yachting stations on the coast; and it vls the yachting stations on the coast; and it was well known that both English and Irish yachtsmen looked forward with pleasure to visiting the Royal Welsh Yacht Club Regat- ta, where, they said, they were invariably well treated. Captain Wvnn Griffith, as the member who seconded the nomination of Mir Jones, 26 years ago, said it afforded him great pleasure to endorse everything that had been said by the proposer and seconder of the motion. From his own knowledge of what the hon. sec. had done in tho interests of yachting, and as a representative of the club, and hav- ing come into contact with yachting visitors, he felt justified in saying that the resigna- tion of Mr Jones must very injuriously affect tion of Mr Jones must very injuriously affect their prospects. He earnestly hoped that Mr Jones would be induced to continue in the position, for which he was so well fitted. The motion was carried with enthusiasm. Mr C. A. Jones said he was deeply sensible of the kind remarks that had been rooue. Although he felt that he was entitled to rest, and that a change would be beneficial, still he had no desire to persist in a course which, it was evident, did not. meet with the approval of the members. He, therefore, though with reluctance, consented to act for the present (hear, hear). This terminated the proceedings.
UNIQUE AND PERMANENT CURES. —Dr Williams' Pink Pills are not like other medicine, and their effects are permanent. They act directly on the blood, and thus it is that they are so famous for the cure of anaamia and rheumatism, scrofula, chronic erysipelas, and to restore pale and sallow complexions to the glow of health. They are also a splendid nerve and spinal tonic, and thus have cured many cases of paralysis, locomotor ataxy, neuralgia, St. Vitus' dance, and nervous headache. They are now obtainable of aU chemists, and from Dr Wil- liams' Medicine Company, 46, Holborn- viaduct, London, at 2s a box, or six for 13s 9d, but are genuine only with full name, Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People.

BANGOR NOTES. A meeting of the committee elected to con- sider the celebration of Her Majesty's long reign was held, I understand, on Wednesday evening. The various suggestions made in the public meeting were fully considered and discussed. Dr Rowland Jones withdrew his .suggestion that a smallpox hospital should be ■erected. As to municipal buildings, the feel- ing of the committee was that there is a great and crying need for them in the city, but it was felt that it was not right to call upon the public to provide money for their erec- tion, while the cost ought to be borne by the rates. It was felt that the infirmary ought to have a good share in tibe funds raised, while there are other -suggestions of celebrating the event. The decision come to in the end was to suggest that a call should be made for funds towards two ohj.e<t-first, the Jubilee Institute for Nurses, and secondly, local ob- jec,.s. What the latter includes I. have not beefn able to understand clearly. The infirm- ary is however, to obtain a share. However, J the report of ths committee will be made to a public meeting, and we shall then. see "whether Bangor peop'e are really desirous oi celebrating the event at all. On Tuesday, the students of the University College returned to their studies after a ten -days' vacation, while to-day the students of the Normal and Training Colleges leave for their homes. Most of the fornier are rather eaiviwis of the latter, who are to have Easter as part of their vacation. It seems a pity fchat the T-TTdvemtyi authorities IcoUld not make their holiday arrangements ooincide -with those of the other colleges. Great sym- pathy is felt with Mr Greene, the lecturer on Education at the 'Varsity, in his sad bereave- ment. The death of his wife was very sud- den and unexpected. By the way, the pasa Iwts of the Queen's scholarships are out, and first on the list of those entering the 'Varsity here is, I understand, Mr J. EliM Jones, son of MrJorun Jones, of Pen'rallt Lodge, who is a brother of Professor Henry Jones, of Glasgow, formerly of the college here.. Mr Jones is to be congratulated on his success, .and may his career in college be as successful. 'Mr Jones is a teacher in St. Paul's School, -under Mr T. J. Williams. The school board deficit amounts to £125. Now, if the complaints of certain ratepayers be true, and they are, the educational ar- rangements of the city are not what they should be. The schools are full, and the ac- commodation ia overcrowded. Temporary re- lief has been made, but the question of pro- viding proper accommodation must be faced, aad I hope the school board will do so.

LORD CARRINGTON ON I LAND QUESTIONS. THE "WEIiSH COMMISSION. < Lord Carrington, speaking at Leicester on land questions on Wednesday night, called attention to the difficult position in which Mr Chaplin found himself as regards the Land- lords Relief Bill passed last year. After Mr Lefevre had been got rid of, the Royal Com- mission on Agriculture presented a special report of an extreme chajapter. On the strength of that report the Agricultural Rat- ing Bill was introduced, as Her Majesty's Ministers were not iprepared to take upon themselves any further delay, and were guided by the consideration of the extreme severity of the depression. But since then the agricultural situation had changed very much for the better, and we were informed (the "Standard" was responsible for the an- nouncement) that the report in consequence of the improvement in the times would have to be rewritten. This was not absolutely denied by Mr Chaplin, though he stated that it was "incorrect, misleading, and a braaoh of confidence:" If the report did not tally with the special report published last year, any reason for passing such an extreme measure as the Agricultural Rating Act at once fell to the ground. Lord Carrington then called attention to the report of the Welsh Land Commission, and the recom- mendations of Sir John Llewelyn, Lord Ken- yon, and Mr Seehohm, three Conservative members of the Commission, ratified by the signatures of the five (Liberal members. The latter added a rider that the proposed optional land court should "be a legal one—a reality instead of a sham. This report did not re- commend free sale, the forcing of an objec- tionable tenant on an unwilling landlord, but it recommended compensation to sitting ten- ants, compensation for disturbance, and State loans to farmers, and also that notice to quit should be given only for non-payment of rent and non-compliance with the terms of agree- ment. Lord Carrington also referred to the suggestions ofMJr Birch, who was agent for properties in (Denbigh, Flint, Yorkshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire, and Shropshire, and who tfermed 400 acres besides. Mr Birch re- commended an Agricultural Holdings Act with full compensation for all .improvements made by the tenants, and full protection to the landlords that their farms should not be "run out." If this plan were followed all agreements whatever could be done away with. Mr Birchs argument was that the r agreements which were put in were waste paper, that the penalising clause and couroe- of-cropping clauses were never acted upon, and that such an Act should extend, over England as well as Wales.

l SHOCKING SUICIDE AT CARNARVON. Early on Monday morning, a man, named Francis Robinson, aged 38, employed as an assistant with. Mr 'Evan (Williams, pork butcher, 'High-street, committed suicide by hanging himself in a covered shed attached to the business establishment of his em- ployer. It appears that he was seen about six o'clock in the morning by his sister. He appeared to be then in his ordinary state of mind, 'but at half-past six, when his mate and brother-in-law, a man, named John Lund, came to work, he found the .man hanging by a rope from a 'beam in the shed. He bad evidently stood on a stool when he placed the noose around his neck and then kicked it away. Lund, on seeing the horrible spectacle, rushed for assistanoe, and Mr Wil- liams, of the Adelphi Hotel, came to his help and they out the poor man down. When Dr Parry arrived shortly afterwards, he found life to be extinct. It appears that the de- ceased, 'had lately been drinking rather heavily, and he also had a fit on Sunday, so it is presumed that these things unhinged his mind to a certain extent. Mr J. H. Bodvel-Roberts held an inquest upon the body at the Guild 'Hall on Monday afternoon.—John Lund, employed as butcher at Hvan Williams's, and a brother-in-law of the deceased, said he saw deceased olive on Sunday. He had a fit about «ix o'clock, and Dr Owen was called) in. After he came round the deceased beca/me jocular, and the witness left him about eight o'clock Alright. He came down to the shop at a quarter past six oti Monday, -but failed to get a reply. Shortly afterwards witness's sister-in-law opened the door, and the first thing they saw was de- ceased hanging by a rope. Witness ran for 9 assistance and they cut the rope. There was no life in fhe body although' it was warm and flexible. There was a small stool taken from the kitchmi and 4plaeed under him. This he had kicked off. So far as witness knew the man was not in trouble, but had lately been rather addicted to drink. He had plenty of money.—Catherine Rowlands, a sister of the deceased, said she saw Robinson alive at six o'clock. He was fully dressed and told wit- ness to go to bed as he would open the door. In half an hour afterwards she heard a kick at the door. Witness wentdownand saw the deceased, whom she thought was in a fit. She shook him, and found he was hanging. He was in drink on (Saturday 'but had only one glass of beer on Sunday. He did not eat much on Sunday. There was nothing in his demeanour to make any one believe he intended doing away with himself, nor had he mentioned anything of such an intention. The jury returned a verdict to the effect that the deceased committed suicide while tem- porarily insane.
FAILURE or, A MINERS' AGENT — Mr loan Taiesydd Williams, of Copperas Hill, Penycae, near Ruabon, who was miners' agent for North Wales from 1891 to 1893, has filed his petition in bankruptcy. The gross liabilities are £ 293; deficiency, 262. From Deoember, 1895, to November, 1896, the deb- tor was landlord of the Carnarvon Castle Ho- tel, Wrexham, and he alleges as the ca-use of his failure that he paid too much for the fixtures and furniture when going in that he trusted too much to others, and that busi- ness was poor and his rent too high.

THE PENRHYN DISPUTE. DETERMINED REFUSAL OF OTHER OFFER OF WORK. The following notice was issued on Friday by Mr E. Â. Young, the chief manager of the quarries, offering, on behaif of Lord Pen- rhyn, employment to competent workmen at the quarries —> "I hereby announce that I am again in- structed by Lord Penrhyn to invite applica- tions, by competent workmen, for work at the Penrhyn Quarry. Such applications can from this date be made at the quarry pay office between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., until further notice. Inasmuch as, amongst other erroneous statements, it has constantly been publicly alleged that Lord Penrhyn desires to interfere with the right of combination among men in his employ- ment, I take this opportunity of again stat- ing that Lord Pelnrhyn has never denied to his workmen the right of combining, either in the form of Unions, committees, or other associations sanctioned by law but, in the interests of both pasrtdesi, he is determined, as heretofore, to uphold the principle of free- dom for employer and employed, leaving the workmen free to be Unionists or non-Union- ists, with tlio certainty of equal and impartial treatment by the management. The inter- ference of tie quarry committee with the management prior to 1885 justifies Lord Pelrl- rhyn in adhering to the line he has con- sistently taken in refusing to allow the re- estabiislinient of the authority of that com- mittee and, in reply to those who assert that without such a committee the workmen are debarred from getting a fair hearing of their grievances, I again publish the rules which were drawn up in 1885, and which con- tinue in force, viz. :—(a) (Individuals ag- grieved shall in the firsil place lay their grievances before the 'district official,' or local manager, (b) If dissatisfied with the decision, they may lay their grievances before the chief manager, personally or by deputation; and, further, if dissatisfied with his decision, they may apply for an interview (personal or by deputation) with Lord Penrhyn. (c) In matters affecting the general body of work- men, or sections of them, representations may always be made, after due notice, as heretofore, by deputations consisting of not more than six employees* representing the workmen concerned. The refusal of the de- putation at the conference oh the 18th March to discuss any of the points originally in dis- pute until they had secured what they de- scribed as 'the right of combination,' and the repeated refusal to resume work, subject to the condition stipulated for by Lord Pen- rhyn, 'that there should be no attempt on the part of any committee to interfere with the management,' go far towards indicating that a system of interference with the man- agement is in reality the ultimate aim of the present agitation. It is also noteworthy that no such committee as that of which the ac- knowledgement is now demanded is recog- nised in any of the principal quarries in North Wales." MASS MEETING OF THE MEN. On Saturday night, a mass meeting of the Penrhyn quarrymen was held at Bethesda. Mr W. Evans, -who presided, said that there was no intention of convening a public meeting at present, but the notices inviting applications for work had: necessitated one (hooting). The offer of employment was made to at any7 rate those of them who were "competent workman" (laughter). With re- spect to that distinction, he ventured to say thlat Itili. all considered themselves to bo competent workmen, but the terms of tho notices made it incumbent upon them to make individual application Nor woafc ((laughter). He complained that the notices should have been issued while negotiations between the committee and Lord Penrhyn were still in progress. Ther9 would have been greater appropriateness had the notices come out on the previous day (April 1at) why, he would leave the meeting to guess (laughter). Hø expressed his gratification at seeing the mem in such a determined frame of mind. Dur- ing the past seven months they had repeated- ly and solemnly passed resolutions, and he believed that they were determined to stand by those resolutions—(cheers)—even in the face of every inducement offered them, and that they would not accept work except through an agreement with their representa- tives (loud cheers). He was proud to think that She country was thoroughly alive to their interests, and that the English Trades Un- ions were most generous in their support (cheers). Mr Robert Griffith proposed—"That, in view of Lord Penrhyn'si fourth invitation, through Mr E. A. Young's posters on the wall to workmen apply for work in his quarry, while we consider ourselves .to be 'competent we cannot accept employment un- der tho terms offered in this notice." Mr Griffith defended the course adapted by the deprtation at the recent conference in putting forward first and foremost the question of combination, without which all other coin- cessions would have been worthless (hear, hear). Mr D. Davies, in seconding the resolution, deckred that the time had coiae when they should say distinctly that they would not apply for work individually (loud eriesi of "No"). Would they go in and leave behind them msfriy of their eo-workmen who had comeoutwfth them ("No"). That being so, to go in was impossible (hear,hoear). Mr Williams, Gerlan, supported the re- solution, stating that all the men demanded was that they be recognised as a party to a labour dispute through their representatives. If there was anything wrong in this, either morally or legally, he should be the first to apologise to Lord Penrhyn and the country for having made .the demand. His lordship waa evidently under the impression that the men's object was to secure the right to man- age the quarry. That was not tha CftSe, and the men knew the suspicion to be unfounded. He emphatically assured the country at large that they desired nothing of the kind. None of them believed that workmen had the right to control any work, but they firmly believed that they should have something to say to their own labour—hear, hear)—and that waa what they asked for (cheers). The employer had his representative, and it was but com- mon fairness thaft the men should have theirs acknowledged (hear, hear). The resolution was then put to the meet- ing, and carried with enthusiasm and unani- mity. Mr D. R. Daniel, the organising secre- tary, referring to the last notice issued in- viting applications for work, said it reminded him of a. race of kings in Europe of whom it had been said that they forgot nothing and learned nothing. Mr Young evidently could not for- get to make a. notice in those terms, and, on the other hand, he could not learn to make them in any other terms which met the wants of the men (laughter and cheers). He (Mr Daniel) wanted to get people in a responsible position like Mr Young to realise that when 2500 people repeatedly stated what they wanted, and those wants were perfectly just and fair. then it waa time that they came to the conclusion that they were telling, the truth. 1 hev asked for the right of combina- tion in the form of a committee. Lord Pen- rhyn expressed his willingness to give every man the right to make a complaint, and if it were found necessary to appoint a deputa- tion, they could do that too; but he (Mr Daniel) contended that to whip up a deputa- tion on every qccaslion was impracticable. The deputation, he maintained, ought to be elected by a committee of the men. As re- garded the future of the dispute, he exhorted the men to maintain an upright conduct, as in the past, and to stand firm, for he would almost rather see them suffering for the want of bread than that they should forfeit their characters by doing that which was "uong and unjust. Mr Henry Jones, G-erlan, suggested that the best thing they could do would be to go out in search of work and prepare during the summer for the coming winter, for he did not anticipate an end to the dispute before a twelvemonth. Mr Robert Davies, eliaiiman of the quarry I committee, and a member cf the last deputa- tion, said ample provision was being made by the Trades Unions of England, and he asked the men if they were prepared to hold out for the next winter (cries of "We are"). There was a possibility of Lord Penriiyn's heart and mind being opened, and of Mr Young—(hooting)—showing greater sym- pathy with the quarrymen. 0 Mr W. H. Williams said that even now the men could not change their position. Lord Penrhyn had requested them to point to any law which sanctioned the granting of what they asked, but he (Mr Williams) ven- tured to say that if there was a law to com- pel his lordship the negotiations would not have taken place at Port Penrhyn (laughter and cheers). During the last six months, the men had been taunted with their pro- sperity in the last twelve years. True, they had enjoyed (comfortable homes on their mountain slopes; but what was the position of many of them forty or fifty years ago (cheers). It would be interesting to know who was responsible for the prosperity they had enjoyed (hear, hear). Mr W. J. W illiams, general secretary to the North TV ales Quarrymen's Union, main- tained that the quarrymen were not treated tke same as workmen in other parts of the country. He did not know whether they were to be looked upon as people who had neither a shara or a right in the industry in which: hey were engaged. The men were certainly not responsible for the present state of things, and if certain persons persisted in the treatment they had already meted out to the men, the men would have a perfect right to criticise them publicly, and to state to the world what they thought of them (cheers). The allusion in the .notice just issued to the non-existence of what the Pen- rhyn men were now seeking did not prove their present demand to be unreasonable or unjust. What they demanded should be con- ceded to quarrymen everywhere. As the 'negotiations proceeded it became more and more clear that there was somebody in the I way (cheers). Let such a one take care that he did not embitter his own cup (cries of "Vivian"). After isome observations from the local secretary, Mr Griffith Edwards, concerning Union payments, the meeting terminated. At almost every mention of the name of Mr Young during the meeting, angry hisses, hoots, and yells were raised from all parts of the building. APPEAL FROM THE QUARRYMEN. The officials of the strike committee have issued a further appeal to the Trades Union- ists of Great Britain, in which they say that Lord Penrhyn's refusal of the right of effec- tive combination at his recent interview with representatives of the men has placed the 2700 quarrymen once morer face to face with a struggle the end of which cannot now be seen. "We have to acknowledge gratefully," continues the circular, "the splendid sup- port you have already given us during the past mlonths. Without Boh help -it is possible the men might have been crushed. In order to carry on the fight, we are again compelled to appeal earnestly to you for the continuance of your sympathy and assist- ance. "PENRHYNISM." The "Glasgow Weekly Mail" remarks:- word 'Penrhynism' has come into use to explain Lord Penrhyn's theory of land- ownership. If he has the right to deny ac- cess to land for the purpose of slate-hewing, he has equally the right to deny access to land for tho purpose of house-building. As one writer well puts it, Lord Penrhyn ia right, it is not merely the right to combine which is threatened, but the right to live. We may neither grow corn, nor build houses, nor aplit slates, nor hew coal, nor dig iron, except on such terms as the 'owners? of agri- cultural or mineral or building lands see fit to impose. To him who the land, to him belong the people, who cannot live ex- cept on and from tho land." HELP FROM OO-OFERlATORS. At the March meeting of members1 of the Rochdale Equitable PiooeerSl Society, it was proposed that the committee I should consider the advisability of giving a delation from the § funds of the Society to the quarrymen on strike at Bethesda. On Monday night, at the quarter- ly meeting of the members, it was stated that the committee recommended a donation of £20. A member proposed that the sum should be increased to £50, and the latter sum was agreed to with acclamation. THE CHOIR IN BATH. The "Bath Herald," of Wednesday, con- tains a long account of a concert held by the Bethesda Male Voice Choir in Argyle Chapel, in that town, the huge building being crowded. Between JS50 and 1£35 waslre- ceived for the relief fund. The singing of the choir was described as "simply wonderful." A CHOIR AT HAWARDEN. On Thursday, the choir of the Bethesda Slate Quarries visited Hawarden, and sang selections of Welsh and English harmonies in front of the Castle-terrace. MIs Gladstone and Miss Philknore, being in the grounds, were approiached on behalf of the choir, who requested the honour of seeing Mr Gladstone. Mrs Gladstone advised them not to press their request in view of Lady Penrhyn being her niece, and one who was always doing good. She and Mr (Gladstone, however, trusted the quarrel would soon be over. She thanked the vocalists. CONCERT AT MOLD. The 'Penrhyn Male Voice iOhoir visited Mold on Tuesday evening. The concert waa most successful, and the quarry relief fund will benefit to the extent of about ,£25. Mr T. Parry occupied the chair. CONCERT AT LLANDUDNO. On Saturday evening last, a section of the Bethesda Choir held a concert at the Pier Pavilion, under the presidency of the Rev H. Barrow Williams, who remarked that it was not his intention to say nothing as to the details of the dispute; but whatever opin- ions were held with respect to it, all were agreed that the men had behaved themselves remarkably well during the long cessation from work. He regretted that the concert was held on a nigllt when Llandudno trades- people could not attend. Had it been other- wise, there would have been a much larger attendance. On Sunday evening, at the same place, they held a sacred concert. Between the two, they netted a profit of between £13 and JB18. I THE LAST CONCERT IN LONDON. The choir had an enthusiastic reception from a large audience in Christ Church, Westminster-bridge-road, on Sunday night, at their farewell performance in London. At the close Mr Bangor Jones, secretary, de- livered a brief address in grateful acknow- I ledgment of the knidness the choir had ex- perienced during its ten weeks' sojourn. They I had come, he said, as strangers from a for- eign land—speakers1 of an unknown tongue, with no claim on the people save from the 'noble sentiment of brotherhood. A struggle for the rights of citizenship and for justice to workmen had compelled them to seek sym- pathy and help from the true friends of free- dom in London. Nothing had impressed his comrades and himself more, or called forth more heartfelt thanks; from the sufferers at Bethesda, than the spontaneous kindness of the people of London (cheers).

DOLE TO BOARD SCHOOLS ONE-SIXTH OF THE GRANT TO SECTARIAN SCHOOLS. Sir J. Garst explained the provisions of the bill to give further aid to necessitous Board Schools. It is proposed to increase the 7s 6dJ grant payable under the Act of 1870 in respect of these schools by 4d for every complete penny by which the rate exceeds 3d, the sliding scale going up to 2d 6d, the highest rate to be provided for, and to an equivalent grant not exceeding 16s 6d. The sum to be distributed would, it was es- timated, amount to an increased grant of £ 110,600. Mr Acland said he believed that when the school boards of the country came to express an opinion on the bill, they would pronounce it to be exceedingly inadequate (Opposition cheers). At the opening of the session, there was a general desire that there should be an equal grant for Voluntary and Board, Schools all round '(Ministerial cries of "No," and Op- position oheers). But what was this pro- posal ? When they 'took it on the avernge- and it was only in that way that they could, do it—this proposal was that while the Vo- luntary School Bill was reckoned on a basis of 5s per child in the Voluntary Schools, the School Board Bill was reckoned on a basis of Is, or very little more, ifor every child in the Board Schools. The great mass of the population were Ibearing a sixpenny Board School rate. How many of them were going to get effective relief out of this. 91-10,000 or £ 120,0001 It was perfectiy clear that out of the total amount of relief which the ratepayers were to get, each dis- trict could not receive more than an exces- sively small sum of money. There were two million children in the Board Schools and two and a half millions in the Voluntary Schools. For the latter they were going to provide a sum which would fall not far short of ;C700, 000 out of either taxes or rates. For the two million children in the Board Schools, they were going to provide a sum of about £ 120,000. The sacrifice to keep going the Board Schools had been, in the annual con- tribution, three times as much as the sacrifice ctf the voluntary subscribers to the Voluntary Schools, and, instead of the former getting three times as much relief, they were to have only one-fifth of the relief given to the Volmi- tory Schools. The Government might ask why it was that the Opposition were inter- ested in relieving the ratepayers, who had gradually built up the great Board School sys- tem. They said that the relief should "no doubt be given in the first place to promote efficiency, and then, where efficiency was pro- vided, to relieve the ratepayers, if they wexe, burdened, from the burdens which they had already incurred. London would be very much surprised to hear how it was going to be treated under this bill (Opposition cheers); He did not helieve that any looabfcy would be likely to refuse any dole, however insuffi- cient, which the Government (might offer them but there would be many localities who would make great complaint when they found how little they were likely to receive under this bill (Opposition cheers). The great mass of the school board districts could not possibly accept this grant of Is instead of 5s as a just or final settlement, and he did not think that even the Government could for a moment suppose that they would ac- cept it in that sense (Opposition cheers). After further debate, a resolution authoris- ing the bill was passed.
