BANGOR POLICE COURT. ( TUESDAY.—Before Alderman T. Lewis, J. E. Roberts, Eeq., Dr H. Grey Eiwards, W. Edwards, Esq., R. Hughes. Esq., and Dr Langford Jones. DRUNKENNESS. — John Parry, Plas- uchaf Farm, Caellwyngrydd, was fined 10s and costs.—William Jones, Tyllyn, Bethesda, was charged with being drunk on licensed premises, and was fined 5s and costs.—For a similar offence, Evan Jones, Tauyffordd, Bethesda, was fined 5s and costs.—Oavid Parry, Glasinfryn, was also fined 2s 6d and costs for drunkenness, and Thomas Williams, West End. Bangor, 2s 6d and costs. FURIOUS DRIVING.—Charles Graham, Bangor, was charged with driving a horse and cart furiously through High-street, I Bethesda. P.C. 37 swore that he called on the defendant to stop, but he took no notice. Defendant said that the horse bolted.- Fined 10s and costs. SHEEP SCAB.-William Thomas, Niw- bwlch Farm, Bangor. was summoned for not reporting sheep scab. Sergeant Owen, Bethesda, proved the case, and said that he visited the farm and saw Feveral sheep suffering from scab. The defendant had not reported them. Defendant said he I would not pay any fine as he would prefer going to prison.-He was fined 2s 6d and costs. ASSAULT AT LLANFAIRFECHAN.— Wm. Edwards, jun., Penmaen View, Llan- fairfechan, and Henry Owen, Gerizim, Llan. fairfechan, were summoned for assaulting Thomas Thomas.—Mr S. R. Dew appeared for the prosecution, and Mr Thornton Jones I defended.-The plaintiff, in the course of his evidence, stated that be lived at Fronheulog. Llanfairfechan, and on Saturday, the 29th of January, as he was leaving the station at Llanfairfechan with a man namerl Thomas Williams, he met five or six men. They obstructed the pavement, and Thomas Wil- liams asked them to move out oi the way. A man named William Evans told him to go along quietly or he would strike him. Plaintiff and Thomas Williams then passed on, and the latter soon afterwards left him. Plaintiff then returned towards the station and met two young ladies, with whom he remained in the station for some time. He then went I back with them to the town, but when he I was near the Bank he saw a crowd of young fellows. The two defendants rushed from the crowd towards plaintiff, and Edwards struck him between the eyes so that he fell. When he got up the defendant Owen struck him down again, and while be was on the ground both defendants gave him a number of blows. Plaintiff managed to get up and ran for shelter to the shop of John Davies, butcher. Mr Davies was not in at the time, and Wm. Edwards followed him. Plaintiff remained in the shop for a little while, but after be went out Edwards struck him again until he fell headlong into a druggist shop. Plaintiff then ran again to the butcher's shop. Mr Davies was in then, and prevented the men from coming in. His face and head were covered with blood, and Mr Davies I gave him some water to wash it away. Plaintiff had never spoken to the defendants previously, and he was perfectly sober at the time. On the Monday following he called at the Bangor Police Station, and showed himself to Inspector Rowlands.—Cross- examined by Mr Thornton Jones: He was quite certain that he was sober when he left Bangor on the Saturday, and he was not violent in the train going home. He did not assault the Tmen who assaulted him, nor did he provoke them in any way.- Thomas Williams swore that he came from Bangor with the plaintiff, who was quite sober. He bad nothing to drink at Bangor that day, and he did not create any disturb- ance on the way home. As they were going along the pavement witness asked a crowd who were obstructing the pavement to move out of the way. He left plaintiff near the Bank, but later in the evening he came back and was stopped by a crowd, of whom the two defendants formed part. One of tha crowd asked where the plaintiff was, and someone gave the witness a blow on the head. Later on he saw the plaintiff coming up the pavement, and the two defendants went towards him. Witness then went away and did not again see the plaintiff until Sunday morning, when he noticed that he ha I a scratch on his nose and a black eye.- Cross-examined: He thrust a man named William Evans on one side in order that he (witness) might pass.-Sarah Jane Bradley deposed that the plaintiff was sober, and did not do anvthing to aggravate the defendants or their companions She then corroborated the evidence regarding the assault, as also did Grace Roberts.—John Davies gave a description of the plaintiff's condition when he came to witness's shop and washed the blood off his face.-P.C. Griffiths also gave evidence. For the defence a large number \1 of witnesses were called, who said that the plaintiff walked into the thick of the crowd and interfered. The defendant Edwards swore that he saw the plaintiff strike a cousin of his, a man named William Evans, and he (Edwards) went to assist him, and struck the plaintiff, who ran into the shop, and after Edwards went away plaintiff came out and shouted at him and also kicked him. He did not. see Henry Owen strike the plaintiff. He only saw the plaintiff in the middle of the crowd, and both he and Thomas Wil- liams were assaulting William Evans. The defendant did not see the plaintiff with the girls. Henry Owen (the other defendant) said that the plaintiff told Thomas Williams to strike William Evans the first time. Later in the evening the plaintiff came into the middle of the crowd and pushed William Edwards one side. The defendant Edwards then struck him. The Bench retired to consider their decision, and fined each defendant JEL and costs.

MEETING OF WELSH LIBERAL MEMBERS, A well attended meeting of Liberal mem bers for Welsh constituencies was held on Tuesday afternoon, Mr Samuel Smith acting as provisional chairman. After a resolution of condolence with Lady Morgan, in which high appreciation was expressed of the ser- vices of thu late Sir George Osborne Mor- gan to tbe Welsh party had been passed, Mr J. Herbert Roberts and Mr Brynmor Jones were reappointed secretaries, and some ar- rangements were made for balloting for Welsh bills It was decided again to give precedence in their choice to a Welsh Land Bill if they were successful in the ballot. After some discussion on the subject of the chairmanship of the party, vacant by the death of Sir G. O. Morgan, it was decided to postpone the appointment for a week, and to meet again on Tuesday evening for the purpose of electing a chairman. It was ar- ranged that Mr J. Herbert Lewis should in the course of the debate on the address call attention by amendment or otherwise to the absence of any reference in the Queen's Speech or in the proposed legislation of the Government to the special needs of Wales. Mr Herbert Roberts will move the follow- ing amendment to the Address:—" Humbly to assure her Majesty that this House regards with grave concern the policy of internation- al repression lately adopted by the Govern- ment of India, and especially the deportation and continued imprisonment of British In- dian subjects without trial, the recent series of Press prosecutions, and the present pro- posals to increase the severity of the law re- lating to sedition in India."
FOOTBALL. NORTH WALES COAST CUP (SEMI-FINAL). BANGOR v. CARNARVON. While Holywell (whom Carnarvon have already vanquished by three goals to nil ia the Welsh Cup competition) were engaged in the other semi-final" with Buckley Vic- toria, whom they vanquished by three to one, the Carnarvon Ironopolis were striving against Bangor at Llandudno to enter the final-with indifferent success. Both teams turned out in capital oondition, though on the Bangor side two men were unwell, viz., Arridge and Lewis, and the 'Nops eleven also included an invalid in the person of D. S. Jones. From the play of these men during the game, a casual observer would not have suspected anyone of them of indis- position, but there can be little doubt that neither of the three played up to true form. The 'Nops, winning the toss, chose to play with a bright sun behind them—a wise choice, though, as a matter of fact, the sun affected the Bangorians very little. The game was a curiously disproportioned, shape- less affair, and one very difficult to describe, except either in full detail (which is out of the question), or in terse generalisation, which would convey a wrong impression to readers. As thus, speaking generally, Ban- gor did most of the pressing in the first half in the proportion of about five to three. In the second half the Bangorians also did most of the pressing, probably to the extent of say five to two. But te state the matter boldly so would not be fair to the 'Nops', who, in spite of the preponderance of pressure on their goal, never, to my mind, appeared to be in any danger of a decided beatirg, while, on the other hand, they might very easily have come off victors by a couple of goals. The fact is, the Bangor forwards were the most dashing, enterpris- ing, cohesive, and determined, but they never mastered the 'Nops' backs or goal- keeper. IOn the other hand, the 'Nops' forwards, inferior in the matter of clan and determination as they were, were yet superior to the Bangor backs on many occasions, and had it not been that Alec Hughes was in good form in the Bangor goal, and that the Bangor backs for ever filled ] gaps in the back line, the Bangor goal would have fallen many times. Au contraire, as the French say, the Bangor forwards, superior as they were, were always safely held at bay by the backs and goalkeeper alone. True they got the ball into the net twice in spite of the 'Nops' backs and keeper, but on each oceasion the offside rule had been infringed, and the points did not count. The only legitimate goal scored was by one of their half-backs, J. Arridge, who, running in at the ball as it was coming away from a scrimmage, resulting from a corner, magni- ficently placed, drove it back at lightning speed into the Carnarvon net. This happen- ed just five minutes before the end of the game, and the Bangorian spectators, naturally enough, considered their team as safely in the final. But, alasl "there's many a slip t'wixt the cup and the lip," and so it was in this case, for, running straight io from the centre kick, the 'Nops' forwards literally drove the Bangorians pele mele into their own goal, and so closely was the attack pushed home that two of the 'Nops forwards were clearly offside, when a pass to Hugh Williams enabled that player to touch gently on to T. Roberts, who at once shot for goal. Sam Roberts diverted the ball out of goal, but in doing so, placed the two Carnarvon right wing men, who were nearer the net than himself, and in a terribly threatening position, inside. Alec Hughes and Sam at once claimed offside, but 0 the referee was close tip, and rightly took no notice of the claim, and the two Williams battered the ball past Alec into the net, and thus the game ended in a draw. Final result being: Carnarvon, 1 goal; Bangor, 1 goal. HOLYWELL v. BUCKLEY VICTORIA. At Mold. The play for about twenty minutes was very exciting, and then Buckley got a goal, whilst just before the whistle sounded half time a goal fell to Holywell, and the score was made level. Half-time score:—One goal each. In the last half Holywell had the best of the game, and added two goals. Result :-Holywell, three goals; Buckley, one. ° MENAI BRIDGE v. RHYL TOWN. At Menai Bridge on Saturday in beautiful weather. Menai Bridge won by seven goals to none. J I
PURIFIED PETROLEUM AFTER INFLUENZA. The after-effects of influenza are generally the most serious to the patient. The cough is harassing and nothing seems to relieve it. The nerves are all unstrung, and there is a general depressed and weakened condition of the whole system. In such oases Angler's Petroleum Emulsion, the food-medicine, will accomplish wonders. It quickly relieves the obstinate cough and heals any inflammation of the throat or lungs. It soothes and quiets the nerves and tones up the whole nervous system. It promotes appetite, aids digestion, and increases weight and strength. After influenza, pneumonia, pleurisy, or any protracted illness that has left the system in a weakened, nm-down condition, nothing will so quickly and sorely heal the diseased tissue, restore the general health, and put renewed life and vigour into the entire system. It is pleasant to take and agrees with the most delicate stomach. Beware of imitations made with ordinary petroleum. The oil used in Angier's Emulsion is obtained from particular wells, and is specially purified for internal use. Of chemists, 2s 9d and 4s 6d.

BANGOR COUNTY COURT. I MONDAY. — Before his Honour Sir I Horatio Lloyd. LADY LITIGANTS.—Mrs Ellen Ambrose Jones, cabinet maker, Bangor, sued Mis Roberts, late of the Liverpool Arms Hotel, for the sum of S62 Is, balance alleged to be due for work done at the Llangollen Vaults, Bangor. The defendant had paid into court the sum of £ 28 2s 2d in discharge of the debts and costs with a denial of lia- bility. Mr H. C. Vincent appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr J. Bryn Roberts (instructed by Messrs J. Rice Roberts and Laurie) de- fended.—Mr Vincent stated that a writ had been issued in the High Court with the re- sult that the case was referred to this court to be tried. The total amount was £ 126 3s 8d, of which JE64 2s 8d had been paid.- The plaintiff, in the course of her evidence, said that in June last .the defendant, Mrs Roberts, spoke to her, and told her she wanted a tenant for the Llangollen Vaults. The plaintiff got her a tenant. Defendant then said she wished to put the Vaults in thorough repairs, and plaintiff send her hus- band to see her, and he was given instruc- tions to convert the premises into a shop and to put the house into thorough repair. The house was originally a public-house but the license had been taken away, and it was converted into a confectioner's shop. No plans and specifications had been prepared but simply an agreement came into that the house should be thoronghly repaired. The work was carried out under the supervision of the defendant and no complaint was made until the bill was delivered, and the only complaint made then was that they had been very long with the repairs. Plaintiff further stated that since the bankruptcy of her hus- band, in 1890, she had conducted the busi- ness and the accounts were paid by her.- Evidence was given *-y Richard Ward, a workman in the employ of the plaintiff; by Mr R. Hill, Bangor and Mr John Williams, builder, Bangor, who stated that in their opinion the work had been well done and that the charges were perfectly fair.-The further hearing of the case was adjourned until the next court.
CONWAY COUNTY COURT. THURSDAY.—Before His Honour Sir Horatio Llovd. WILLIAMS v. LEWIS.—The part-heard case of Hugh Williams, Nant, near Conway, against P. and H. Lewis, timber merchants, with reference to the value of certain prop- wood supplied to the defendants, was re- sumed.-His Honour said he wanted to look up the evidence, and would give his decision probably §vithin a week. ACTION AGAINST THE L. AND N.-W. BAILWxi. L COMPANY.—John Evans, car- h 13 rier, Colwyn Bay, brought an action against the North-Western Railway Company for damages alleged to be the result of negligent shunting in the goods yard at Colwyn Bay. —'Mr Amphlett stated that the plaintiff claimed £ 5 damages. He should show that there was not only negligent shunting, but that the goods yard was in a very neglected state. On October 26th the plaintiff went to the station for a load of bricks he was carting for Mr Berth Jones, builder. A load of kerb stones had been thrown on to the yard in the roadway used by carters, and there were also some iron sewage pipes, which left very little room for carts to pass. The violent shunting threw a man in the emplov of Mr Berth Jones on his back in a truck: and owing to no signal of shunting being given the horse belonging to the plaintiff became restive and quite uncon- trollable, and jumped amongst a quantity of kerb stones. In November, the company issued new regulations as to shunting.—Mr Fenna said this was not correct. It was true that the new regulations of the Com- pany were issued on November 1st, but they had taken some time to formulate.—Mr Am- phlett said in any case fresh notices were posted up in the goods sheds since the ac- cident. Notwithstanding the great growth of Colwyn Bay during tie past 20 years, the company had done washing for the better accommodation of their customers. The officials did what they could, but the accom- modation was too small, and there were general complaints that no better facilities existed now than when Colwyn Bay was a small village. There was at present a peti- tion from the district council to the com- pany on this subject.—John Evans, the plaintiff, and a carter, named John Evans, gave evidence in support of Mr Amphlett's statement.—Mr Fenna said the whole ques- tion would turn upon the alleged "negligence," and as to whether the shunting was so violent as to make the company liable for the damages. His evidence would be in conflict entirely with that of the plain- tiff. He should show that there was sufficient notice of shunting, that the engine driver gave the usual notice by whistling twice.—'His Honour did not think there was any case for damages, because of the state of the yard. The carters knew of the state of the yard, and if they could get in they 1!1 j could just as well get out. It was a ques- tion of evidence as to the whistling, and whether it was sufficient notice. — Timothy Travers, brakesman, said he was present at the shunting on October 26th at Colwyn Bay. When the plaintiff was in the yard, the driver gave whistling signals which could be heard a mile off. The horse bolted, and the cart collided with a heap of stones and overturned, the horse falling down. The horse was released, and walked away. He did not bump the trucks so that a man fell I down.—Hugh Hughes, engine driver, stated that he gave two "crows" before starting, which could be heard half-a-mile off at le,a!#t. —< His Honour: I often wish the "crows" were half-a-mile off (laughter).—The witness was quite positive he did not collide with any waggons.—John Lewis Jones, fire- man, corroborated the driver.-His Honour said it had nothing to do with the present case whether the company's premises were sufficient for increase of business in Colwyn Bay, and no company could be expected to keep goods in the trucks on the sidings an indefinite time. They must occasionally empty them on the yard, and this caused a grievance. There was no evidence whatever of any negligence in the management of the 11 Z-1 yard. With regard to the shunting, it was quite clear it was the duty of persons en- trusted with it to take proper precautions. In this case, he could not but believe that the man was knocked down in the truck be- cause of the bumping in shunting. And the horse was probably frightened by the bumping and banging, and not by the whist- ling. He thought the version of the story given by the plaintiff and his men was the one he should believe, and therefore judg- ment would be for the plaintiff with costs. 15 ADJOURNED.—A jury had been sum- moned to hear a case by Hugh Thomas, car- rier, Gyffin, for J350 damages against John Thomas Evans and David Davies, Bwlch, Gyffin, the plaintiff having lost a finger in a quarrel with the defendants. — Mr HuW Rowland was for the plaintiff, and Mr W. P. Roberts for the defendants. — The case was adjourned to the next Conway Court.

THE NATIONAL CONVEN- TION AT CARDIFF. FORMATION OF A CENTRAL COUNCIL. As reported in our last week's issue, the convention met at eleven o'clock on Friday, from 500 to 600 accredited delegates being present. Mr Albert Spicer, M.P., who pre- sided, was supported by Messrs T. E. Eiiis, D. Lloyd-George, Herbert Lewis, Herbert Roberts, William Jones, Samuel Smith, Samuel Moss, Brynmor Jones, Alfred Thomas, Vaughan Davies, and other Welsh M.P.'s. THE LATE SIR G. OSBORNE MORGAN, BART., M.P. The Chairman, in a happy speech, having opened the proceedings, Mr T. E. Ellis moved, and Mr Alfred Thomas seconded, a vote of condolence with Lady Osborne Morgan, which was unanimously adopted in impressive silence, the whole of those present rising to their feet. PROPOSED CENTRAL ORGANISATION. Mr Brynmor Jones, M.P., moved-" That the time has come when a central organisa- tion for Wales and Monmouthshire should be formed (composed entirely of representa- tives from each constituency association), the duty of which organisation shall be to call conventions from time to time as occa- sion demands, to consider questions affecting the general interests of Liberalism, and to undertake such work in connection there- with as the conventions from time to time decide." With the adoption of that pro- posal was bound up the existence of the Welsh Liberal Parliamentary party. If the proposal were not adopted a mortal blow would be dealt the party. It might, indeed, whatever, they decided, survive in form bat only in form, and not in substance. Mr Herbert Roberts, M.P., briefly seconded the resolution, expressing his hearty adhesion to the scheme. It was, he said, of the utmost importance that they should make their political machinery an effective weapon to secure the reforms they so eagerly desired. Mr Arthur Daniel, Troedyrhiw, after a I lively scene, having been challenged as to whom he represented, moved that the motion be altered as follows :—" That the time has come when a central council for for Wales and Monmouthshire should be formed, composed entirely of representatives from each federated association, to consider questions affecting the general interests of Liberalism, and to undertake such work in connection therewith as may from time to time be deemed necessary." Mr Howell, Cardiff, seconded the amend- ment. "NO WELSH HERE The Rev ToWyn Jones rose to address the meeting, and commenced speaking in Welsh. This was received with mingled applause and derision and for some minutes Mr Jones was unable to proceed. There were cries of "Speak in English," and "We do not understand Welsh." But a delegate from North Wales rose, and said that if the chair- man put down Welsh it would have a very bad influence in Wales. The Chairman I will take it upon myself to rule that Welsh speeches be allowed (ap- plause). The Rev Towyn Jones then spoke, and bis speech was translated by Mr Herbert Roberts. In effect, Mr Jones stated that he could not agree with Mr Daniel's amend- ment. Mr W. Brace, miners' agent, and Mr W. H. Brown, Newport, having spoken, Mr Adams stated that Merioneth could afford to be without a convention, but the Liberals of that county felt that Wales could not do without one (cheers). Mr Thomas Gee, Denbigh, then rose, and his doing so was the signal for a burst of hearty cheering, the audience rising to its feet to welcome the veteran Liberal. He proposed the following amendment—" That the time has come when the Liberal party in Wales and Monmouthshire should be united in one central organisation, and that I such organisation shall be established to-day" (applause). The Rev C:T. Thomas, Groeswen, seconded. Mr Arthur Daniel's amendment to the re- solution was then put to the meeting and lost by a large majority. Mr Gee's amendmeut was put to the vote and lost. Several other amendments having being put and lost, Mr Gwilym Evans, Llanelly, said, as a member of the old South Wales Liberal Federation, his sympathies had been with that body, but after hearing the mastery speech of Mr Brynmor Jones all cobwebs bad been cleared away—(loud cheers)—and he approved of the resolution. The original motion of Mr Brynmor Jones, M.P., was°then .'put to the Convention and adopted, the chairman announcing, amid loud cheers that only one hand had been held up against it. CONSTITUENCY ASSOCIATIONS. After luncheon, the consideration of the agenda paper was proceeded with. Taking first the proposal of the scheme that every constituency association shall elect one dele- gate for every 5CO electors to form the central association, Principal Edwards moved an amendment, on behalf of the Cardiff Lib2ral Association, that the Central Council should consist of one representative for every 3000 electors. Mr W. Brace seconded, and the Rev Lewis James, Pembrokeshire, supported the amend- ment. Mr T. E. Ellis, M.P., who was enthusias- tically received, the audience rising to its feet and cheering, said that having passed the resolution after a prolonged and careful discussion in the morning, they should not lose sight of one of the three or four impor- tant and pertinent principles which they had affirmed in the morning. The meeting had been unanimous, first of all, on the principle of national unity in Liberal political organisations; secondly, that whatever organisation or organisations might be formed to embody that principle of unity, the organisation should be based upon the direct representation of each constituency association; and," thirdly, that whatever organisation was formed on that basis, one, at any rate, of its functions should be to call conventions from time to time, as occas- ion demanded, to consider questions affect- ing the general interest of Welsh Liberal- ism. It seemed to him that they wanted two things in Wales—first of all, a perman- ent, constant organisation, compact in num- ber, representative in character, to do what he might call the week-to-week or month-to- month work of Liberalism (hear, hear). The idea of making the executive directly repre- sentative he strongly supported. He sug- gested that the permanent council or executive should be formed on the basis suggested by Principal Edwards of one delegate for every 3000 Selectors, but that when a convention was summoned the re- presentation should be on the basis of one delegate for every 5CO electors (cheers). Principal Edwards said the Cardiff Associa- tion heartily sympathised with the speech of Mr Ellis, ond they cordially accepted his sug- gestion"(applause). Mr Brynmor Jones, M.P., said that having conferred with his colleagues he proposed to amend his motion so that it should read that every constituency association shall elect an- nually one delegate for every 3000 electors, or a fraction over that number, not less than 150 electors, to form the central organisation, provided that every constituency association shall have the right to elect at least one dele- gate, and that the central organisation shall have power to call from time to time, when expedient, a convention of Welsh Liberals, upon the basis of one delegate for every 500 electors, and that in order to enable the central organisation to call a convention promptly when necessary the constituency associations be asked to nominate representa- tives annually in the proportion of one to 500 electors. The motion was then unanimously adopted in this form. FURTHER DETAILS. It was decided that the organisation should have a president, a treasurer, and a secretary, the latter to be elected by the Central Organisation, and all to be elected for one year. It was also resolved that the Council should be called the Welsh National Liberal Council. Mr Herbert Roberts, M.P., and Mr S. Moss, M P., who met with an enthusiastic reception, urged the importance cf a liberal response being made to the contemplated appeal for funds for carrying on the Central Organisation. 11 On the motion of Mr Brynmor Jones, M.P., the whole scheme, as amended, passed the Convention amid prolonged cheering. A demand was then made for a speech from Mr D. Lloyd-George, M.P., and when thehon. member compiied he was given a very hearty rec-ption. Having formally moved a resolution providing for the ap- pointment of a provisional committee with full power to carry out the scheme adopted, and to raise funds, the hon. mem- ber declared that be knew the Liberals of Wales would not fall into the blunder which was regarded as one of the besetting sins of Welsh nationality, of passing resolutions, and then not carrying them out ("No, no"). They had decided to get a national organisa- tion for Wales for national purposes, and he hoped that they would not leave the matter where it now stood (hear, hear). They had passed the resolution with wonderful unani- mity, and they must now put it into prac- tical operation (hoar, hear). Before they could do so, they must appoint a committee to get funds. He agreed with every word that had been said abont the necessity of getting a central organisation which had never been more necessary than now (hear, hear). They bad several important ques- tions to decide, and the general election might not be far off (applause). The doom of the Government was not distant. The handwriting was on the wall, and the whole country was sick of it. Principal Edwards seconded, and sug- gested that the provisional committee should consist of the Welsh members of Parliament, who had carried the movament on so far. The Chairman stated that the Welsh members were very much opposed to this, and thought that at least six or ten out- siders should be added. Mr P. W. Raffan and others supported Dr Edwards, and the motion, as amended, was carried unanimously. PUBLIC MEETING. In the evening, under the presidency of Mr Alfred Thomas, M.P., a splendid demon- stration was held at the Park Hall, when speeches were delivered on current politics by all the Welsh members present, including Messrs T. E. Ellis, D. Lloyd-George, S. Smith, Herbert Lewis, and Samuel Moss, the latter, amid a great outburst of cheering from the vast audience, appealing to all to sink fads, crotchets, and idiosyncracies. for only by unselfish unity in the interests of the nation would they carry out the movement which they had so well begun. The fine speech of the Liberal Whip was, of course, received with great enthusiasm, and the scathing denunciations of the Government's policy at home and abroad, contained in his speech, as well asjthat of Mr Lloyd-George, who dea't in no unsparing language with England's tawdriest statesman, Joseph Chamberlain," were cheered to the echo.
THE NORTH WALES TEM- PERANCE ASSOCIATION. The executice committee met at Carnar- von on Monday, Mr John Paull in the chair. It was decided to make efforts to get sub- scriptions to meet Mr Herbert Roberts, M.P.'s challenge by the end of next month. Mr Roberts had offered to contribute £10 a year for three years on condition that 90 subscribers contribute £1 a year oach. Gratification was expressed at the establish- ment of the Denbigh County Association, and an earnest wish for its success. It was decided to give the English Sunday Closing Special Campaign every assistance in the power of the committee. In view of some members of Parliament advocating the abandonment of the Veto Bill it was decided "That we cannot consent to lay aside our demand that the people should have the power to determine, by Local Veto, whether they will permit the liquor traffic in their midst; and that we will not support any candidate or member of Parliament who re- fuses to do all he can to push on such a measure." A vote of condolence was passed with Mrs Davies and the family at IJlan- dinam, on the death of Mr Edward Davie*, J.P., who was a vice-president of the Association, a staunch and earnest abstainer from childhood, and an active supporter of the cause.
CEMENT WORKER'S NAR- ROW ESCAPE. TOLD BY HIMSELF. A reporter of the West Kent Advertiser heard the story of a narrow escape from being a cripple for life, from Mr Arthur Court,a young man, twenty-one years of age. residing at 12, Albert Terrace, Swanscombe. This is Mr Court's story :— I have been working for some years in what is called the stoke-hole, at Messrs J. B. White and Son's cement factory, and in the year 1895 I was suddenly seized with a pain in my feet and ankles. At first it was nothing to speak of, and I took no notice of it, but instead of getting better, it gradually got worse. I tried various remedies, but these bad no effect, and I visited a doctor, who gave me advice, but did not seem to do me good. I got worse and worse, and used to hobble down to the works on sticks, until at last I was compelled to lay up altogether. Mr Arthur Court. I suffered in- tense pain, and it took me over half- an hour to walk down .the road, a I distance of a hundred yards. I had to go upstairs on my hands and knees." Did not you seek any further ad. vice ? asked the reporter. "Yes," re- plied Mr Court, "for hao;rlaa .nh. k/VOAUWO j. uu bing my legs with various embrocations, I paid a visit to a London institution, and was told I was suffering from muscular rheuma- tism, but did not experience a bit of good." But you are all right now ? Yes, I am glad to say I am. After I had been suffering for about a year, a fellow- workman spoke to me of Dr Williams' PInk Pills for Pale People, and told me that a friend Gf his at Hull, a member of the Ship- wrights' Society, who had suffered from paralysis for a long time, had been cured by them. The doctors had given me up as in. curable, and as it was thought he could no longer work, he was presented by the Society with a donation of £ 50. He is now at work, and has been for some time. I determined to try the Pills. I took three of the Pills at a dose, and after the first box was finished I felt somewhat better, and per- severed. As I continued taking the Pills, the pain gradually disappeared uutil it was gone altogether."
1 USIVPIESITT COLLEGE OF NORTH WALES, BANGOR. MORE AUTONOMY. A meeting of the council of the college was held on \Yednesday, Mr J. Lloyd Grif- fith in the chair. Mr H. Bulkeley Price was re-appointed chairman, and Mr P. P. Pennant vice-chairman for the year 1898. It was resolved, on the recommendation of the finance committee, to add the legacy of £ 200 left to the college by the late Sir George Osborne Morgan, Bart., to the general scholarship fund, and to establish, in recognition of the bequest, an Osborne Morgan Entrance Exhibition. A vote of thanks was accorded to Mr Henry Tate for his donation of £ 200 towards equipping the chemical department of the college with works of reference. The report of the Senate recommended that in pursuance of the policy laid down twelve months pre- viously, the holding of special classes for the London Intermediate Arts Examination be discontinued from the beginning of session 1898-9. The initial step taken in the dis- continuance of special classes for London Matriculation had, it was stated, been car- ried out without detriment to the work and prosperity of the college. There were at present 51 students following Welsh Inter- mediate Arts Courses as against seven who were preparing exclusively for the London Intermediate Arts Examinations. The re- commendation of the Senate (which does not apply to the London final B.A. or to the Science Examination) was adopted.
