ANGLESEY ASSIZES. A BLANK CALENDAR. AN AMLWCH PUBLIC-HOUSE SALE. The winter Assizes for Anglesey took place on Wednesday, before Mr Justice Walton, at Beaumaris. There ,were no prisoners for trial, and his Lord- ship, in addressing the Grand Jury, of whom Mr H. Bulkeley Price was the foreman, said that though the jury were assembled in accordance with a procedure which Was one of the most tvneient of our institutions, it was his good for- tune to ttll that there was no business for I them to do. There was no indictments to be I preferred, but he was sorry to say that there was upon that county at the moment the shadow of a very shocking and terrible homicide, but that was a ca'^e which was still before the justices for investigation, and which, therefore, they could not properly deal with on that oc- casion. That being so, he had really nothing further to say to them than to congratulate them on the freedom which the county enjoyed from offences against the criminal law, subject, of course, to what he 'had s'aid as to what, had occurred during the last few days, and to dis- II miss them from further service. Mr William Jones, of Llwydiarth Fawr, the High-Sheriff of the county, then presented to the Judge a. pair of white gloves, in accordance with the usual custom. The Judlge, in acknowledging the compliment, said he had-much pleasure in accepting the gift, amd he was happy to say that that was he second pair of white gloves which had been presented to him during the present assizes, one pair in the county of Merioneth and now again in the county of Anglesey.
ALLEGED BREACH OF CONTRACT. The court proceeded to hear the only civil Case which had been entered for trial. In it Owen Thomas Hobday, described as a corn merchant, sued Owen Jones, lately the I owner of the Liverpool Arms Inn, Amlwch, for j375 for breach of contract. Mr Trevor Lloyd (instructed by Mr Thornton Jones) appeared for the defence, and the plain- tiff was not represented by counsel. He was at the outset informed by the Associate (Mr Andrew) that he had certified for a jury, but- that before the case could be called on before a jury it would be necessary for him to provide 12s, being th'e amount of the jury fees. Was he prepared to pay that money ?—The plaintiff said he was not then in a. position to do so.— Mr Trevor Lloyd said he was quite prepared to go on without a. jury, and the plaintiff also agreed to the same course. The jurors in at- tendance were thereupon discharged, and the case was heard before his Lordship. The plaintiff, in his evidence, said that he based his claim upon an agreement, which be handed in, and which was dated May 25th, 1899. It was addressed to the plaintiff, and, was signed by the defendant, and Was worded as follows :—"In consideration of your allowing me to withdraw from my agreement as to the sale of my property known as the Liverpool Arms, situated at Amlwch Port, I hereby agree to give you. as agent for Messrs Greenall, Whitley, and Co., Warrington, the first refusal of the property at JS1800 in the event of my de- ciding 'hereafter to dispose of the same." The Judge intimated to Mr Lloyd that as the plaintiff was llureprecsellted he would put to him such questions as would put the matter right before him. Mr Lloyd concurred, and in answer to his Lordship the plaintiff said that he wa's a. corn and flour merchant at Amlwch, and he was not an agent for JTessrs Greenall, Whit- I ley, and Co. He was described as such in the agreement, but that was a mistake, and he told the solicitor who drew it up that he was not Messrs Greenall, Whitley, and Co.'s agent. He was in the habit of taking options for the sale of property, and in the event of a sale he re- ceived commission. He had in this way had dealings with Messrs Greenall, and had received commission from them at the rate of JB5 per cent. He heard that Owen Jones had sold his property to Greenall's. This he learnt from the managing director of the firm. He had not seen the defendant since. Mr William Fanning j had acted for the plaintiff at the commencement ■ of this e oti on, but 'he did' not now* represent j him, and he (the plaintiff) had got none of that solicitor's papers. The Judge intimated to Mr Lloyd that the plaintiff had. a right to call for documents, and KU'ested that they should be handed in. i Mr Lloyd said he would do anything in I reason to assist the plaintiff under the circum- stances, and he read to the court letters written I by Mr Fanning to the In one of them Mr Fanning explained that Owen Jones had sold the public-house without giving the plaintiff the first refusal; that the plaintiff had I thus lost his commission, which at £5 per cent. I would represent a sum of £90. Subsequently MJr Thornton Jones, who had then Ween con- sulted by Mr Owen Jones, wrote denying any obligation to pay the sum demanded and asking for a copy of the agreement. This was, how- ever, refused by Mr Fanning, who stated that the plaintiff declined to authorise him to supply it. Some •oorrespond'eWce ensued as to thV re- fusal to supply the copy, and tlso between the defendant and Messrs Greenall, Whitley, and Co. The plaintiff, continuing his evidence, said he had received no commission, and he believed that I if the defendant had performed his contract he could have sold the house and earned the com- mission. Cross-examined by Mr Lloyd, the plaintiff denied that he ever instructed Mr Hamer, tne solicitor, who drew up the agreement, that he solicitor, who drew up the agreement, that he was an agent of Messrs Greenall and Co. If the agreement had been carried out he would have looked to Greenall's for his commission. He admitted having written a letter to Mr Owen Jones in which he said he had heard from the firm that prices were going down owing to the Licensing Commission, and he feared that if the defendant intended to sell he could not get as much as the defendant desired by £300, though at that reduotikm the price Would be a splendid I one. In answer to the Judge, the plaintiff said that he previously had another option to buy the public-house within a month, and this he sub- mitted to Messrs Greenall. The defendant's mitted to Messrs Greenall. The defendant's family, liov ev r, did not want him to sell, and I at his request he plaintiff annulled that agree- ment in exchange for that of May 25th, 1899, receiving B5 from the defendant for out-of- pocket expenses in the matter. Messrs Greenall returned that agreement to him, stating that the price was too high. The document wa.s de- stroyed in. the presence of the defendant when the new oas was drawn up. He did not submit the new agreement to Messrs Greenall, as he was expecting the defendant to inform him when he was prepared to sell. On getting such an he was prepared to sell. On getting such an intimation, he would, of course, proceed to negotiate with the firm. When he found that the sale had been effected without his knowledge he wrote to qssr Greenall and sent them the document, asking whether they would1 pay him the commission or whether ,he was to get it from t'^e defendant Their reply was to the effect th"^ t?ey r-ecotrnjscd no claim upon them, and that they had acted quite stnaii^'htforw'ardly in the matter. -i j The Judge pointed out that there had so far been 31() proof that the sale had actually oc- curred, and ne intimated to the plaintiff that the lat'ter coa jf h'e ohose call the defendant. Mr Hobdav fell m ,with the Judge's sug- gestion, and y^en Jon'es, who is advanced' in vears, was called. e said he sold the property last May to Messrs Greenall, Whitley, and Co. for £ 1500.. vf4.iL This closed the case^ for the plaintiff, and Mr Lloyd submitted tha-t Were was nothing for him to answer. I Has Lord?b>p said the agreement appeared to mean that the opportunity +wa« giveiv to the plaintiff personally, though e Property could only be sboi" t.■ Messrs Gr^nall, and the agree- ment was not curried out. The sale was for B300 less than the price äeed, to and, there- fore, he d-d not see that the plaintiff had sus- tained any damage by the non-carrying out of the ag'ee'miiit Mr Hoy ;t u^ued that as two years had almost elapsed before the actual sale, durmg which the plaintiff liad done nothing wiith tne agree- ment, his claim had lapsed. His Lord-ihip said the agreement was not limited as to time. „ John Hamer, solicitor, ,wa« then called. He stated tint irs Mlay. 1899, on behalf of the plaintiff he drew up the agreement put in. Hob- day was understood to be an agent to Messrs GreenaH, and did not repudiate the description when be saw it in the agreement. Owen Jones was only will in <r to sell to Gree,nail's, and agreed to the plaintiff being the go-between. The witness aicted "1" agent when the house was sold, and he received £50 for the negotiation of the purchase. Replying to the Judge, the witness said he I did not com in unicate with Hobday, though he knew of tho agreement, inasmuch as he had in- structions from the firm to negotiate the pur- chase, and also from Owen Jones. The firm knew of the house before, and had been con- sidering it. Mr Owen Jonets1 was well known to ( Mr Wynne Jones, one of the directors of the Company. His.Lordship said the case was one for no- ( minal damages only. Mr Lioyd resisted that judgment, contending r that there was no breach of the agreement, that the commission, if payable at ail, should be pay- able by Messrs Greenall, and that. the agreement was vitiated by the false representations as to being agent for that firm. His Lordship gave judgment for Is damages wiith cost's on that amount. He thought the plaintiff had a personal option under the agree- ment to 'buy the property for Messrs Greenall, and thUt option was not given to him. The Court then rose, and the High- Sheriff afterwards entertained the Grand Jurors, the member's of the Bar. and other guests at the Wi'ldiams-Bulkelcv Arms Hotel. The toast of the King having been honoured, that of the High-Sheriff was submitted by Mr H. Bulkeley Price and suitably replied to by Mr William Jones. The toast of the Under- Sheriff (Mr David Owen) was also honoured.

OPENING^OF PARLIAMENT. I THE PROGRAMME OF THE GOVERN- I MiENT. On Thursday, King Edward VII. opened the session of Parliament in State. His Majesty session of Parliament in State. His Majesty was accompanied by Queen Alexandra, and the route from Buckingham Palace to the House of Ajords was densely crowded with people, who cheered their Majesties with great enthusiasm. bnlliantn€ H°USe °f Lm<i» was rea% In the Speech from the Throne reference was made to the colonial tour of the Prince and Princess of Wales, and the assurance was given that our relations with foreign Powers were of a friendly character. In the paragraph relating to the war it was stated that- the course of the operations had been favourable to our arms, the area of the war had been largely reduced, and industries were being resumed. In spite of the tedious character of the campaign, the soldiers had throughout dis- played a cheerfulness in the endurance of the hardships incident to guerilla, warfare and a humanity even to their own detriment in the treatment of the enemy which was deserving of the highest praise. Further contingents of J colonial troops were being sent to the front. References followed to the reassembling of the International Conference on Sugar Bounties, the conclusion of a treaty with the United States facilitating the construction by them of an inter- oceanic canal, and the conclusion of a treaty with Brazil regarding the British Guiana frontier question, with the King of Italy as arbitrator. With regard to India it was stated that the continuance of relief measures, though on a less extensive scale, would be necessary in certain parts of the Bombay Presidency and the adjoin- ing Native States. An improvement in the methods and efficiency of famine relief was anti- cipated as a result of the labours of the Famine Commission. With regard to Afghanistan, the new Ameer expressed his earnest desire to maintain friendly relations with India. To the members of the House of Commons the assurance was given that the Estimates for the year had been framed as economically as a due regard to efficiency rendered possible in the special circumstances of the present exigency. In conclusion, measures were promised for the co-ordination and improvement of primary and secondary education, for amending the adminis- tration of the water supply of London, for facili- tating land purchase in Ireland, for improving the law of valuation, for amending the law re- lating to the sale of intoxicating liquors and for the registration of clubs, for amending the patent law, and for sundry reforms in the law of lunacy. THE WELSH PARTY The Welsh Liberal representatives met under the temporary chairmanship of Mr Humphrevs- Owen. The formal business of the meeting com- menced with the unanimous re-election on the proposal of Mr Vaughan Davies, seconded by Mr Lloyd-George, of Mr Alfred Thomas as chairman of the party. A similar unanimous vote brought about the reappointment of the two honorary secretaries, Messrs Brynmor Jones and Herbert Roberts. Some discussion took place as to the position to be taken up by the party with regard to the Address. A certain section advocated a do-nothing policy, but eventually it was unani- resolved that an amendment to the A *jBSs ke moved in the following terms humblv express our regret that your Majesty s Speech contains no reference to questions .specially affecting the interests of the people of Wales, and that. in view of the failure oi Parliament during the past six years to con- sider those interests, it is desirable that there should be conferred upon the Principality a large extension of powers of local self-government." At the reouest of the meeting Mr Herbert Lewis and Mr Frank Edwards undertook the duty of proposing and seconding this amendment. A discussion followed as to the best means of furthering the question of Welsh disestablish- ment, but no specific resolution was arrived at.
¡ CARNARVONSHIRE POLICE COMMITTEE. THE PENRHYN TROUBLE AgfAIN. I SPECIAL POLICE DISTRICT TO BE FORMED. A meeting of the Carnarvonshire Standing Joint Police Committee was held at Carnarvon on Thursday. Mr H. Kneeshaw presided, and the following members were also present: Col. Wynne Finch, Captain Stewart, Messrs J. E. Greaves, Issarcl Davies, W. A. Darbishire, E. Wood, J. Hughes, J. Menxies, "Edward H. Owen, Abel Williams, Myrddin Jcn.es, Tiiomas Lewis, D. P. Williams, C. H. Darbiehire, J. R. Pritehard, W. J. Parry, R. O. Jones, J. Jones Morris. Robert Hughes, William Jones (Llanwnda), J. Pentir Williams, William Prit- ehard, Rev G. Ceidiog Roberts, Sir H. J. E. Nanney, together with the clerk (Mr J. Bodvel- Roberts), and the Chief-Constable (Col. Ruck). THE CHIEF-CONSTABLE'S REPORT. The ChiefrConst able submitted his report for quarter ending last. December. During the quarter 70 crimes were committed, compared with 48 during the same period last year, 35 persons, compared1 with 24, were proceeded against, five were committed for trial, against seven, 18 were convided summarily, compared with 13, discharged, ll, compared with four, crimes undetected, 24, compared with two. Number of crimes committed during the year 198, against 223 the preceding year. Non-iiidiet- able offences during the past quarter numbered 445, convicted, 345; discharged, 99. The figures for the corresponding quarter last year were and 102 respectively. The number of persons who, during the quarter, rendered themselves liable to be dealt. with under sec. 2 of the Inebriates Act, 1898, was four males and one female. The number of trampsi relieved during the past quarter was 520, as compared with the 489 in the corresponding quarter last. year. Number brought up for begging, three; convicted', two; discharged^ •owe. The value of property stolen was £ 73' 15s 8d' of which £35 was recovered. Eight publicans were pro- ceeded against, four for permitting, drunken- ness, three' for opening during prohibited hours, and one for permitting gaming, of whom four were convicted and four dismis^gd. The 20 'addi- tional constables for temporary duty, whose em- ployment was sanctioned at the la-st, meeting of the committee, were obtained without any diffi- culty, and that they were now doing duty in various parts of the county. As far as he could see at present, it seemed to him probable thaij theiir services would be required for a longer period than the three ^months for which they were originally engaged, as the Bethesda dis- trict was still in a. disturbed state. In fact, the disturbances there became so serknis in the last week of the year that the magistrates de- cid'ed upon again bringing ;.1 military force into the district t o be on. the spot in case of necessity, and he. also, after obtaining the sanction of the chairman of the committee, borrowed as many police 'as he could get from the four neigh, bouring counties .of Anglesey, Denbighshire, Flintshire, and Merionethshire, for duty in Beth- esda, and the places in the vicinity where dis- turbances might be apprehended. Some of the borrowed police returned home on Sunday, the 5th inst., and the remainder on Monday, the 6th, wHen, the district had become comparatively quiet again. Mr J. R. Prftchard said that there was one very important omission from the report. They had seen a great deal about, the matter in the newspaper, and he should like to call atten- tion to it. He was referring, to certain cases in which parties Jhad been summoned to appear be- fore the Bangor magistrates (hear, hear). He wasi going to refer to the action of the police, and would not say a word of the action of the magistrates. He understood from the re- ports in the papers that a summons, or two sum. mouses, had been issued! against the Marquis of Anglesey for furiously driving a. motor car, and he wanted to know what was the reason that that summons was withdrawn (hear, hear). The same day, there as a. summons, against a. little chiild, nine years of age, and small for his age, for throwing stones. His advocate asked that the summons against him; be withdrawn on the satme grounds as that against the Marquis of Anglesey had been withdrawn, but the police said that the prosecution have a moral n- fluence, and refused to withdraw the summons in. that case (laughter). In the case against the Marquis, however, they were quite willing to withdraw. He felt that they should be very jealous of the honour of their police force, andi they should get a satisfactory reason why one case was proceeded with and the other not. What the public said was that one case was a. case against a man of wealthy who had a. quarter of a million's worth of dioamondSlwbich he sported in local theatres, while the other was a case* against a little boy (hear, hear). Equal justice should be dealt to. all, and actions like this tended to bring police prosecutions into contempt before the country (hear, hear). He considered that the committee should have a. replv from the Chief-Constable with reference to this matter fappTause). The Chief-Constable said that the facts as stated by Mr Pritehard were not correct. The I police were not applied to to withdraw, and did! I not assent as Mr Pritchard had said thev did. It was done by the direction of the magistrates I only. Mr J. Jones Morris asked why did not the police see that the case against the M'arquis of Anglesey was called on in the proper course. The magistrates had no rht to order the with- drawal! of the summons. Mr J. R. Pritehard' maintained that these two cases were not treated alike. That was his. point. The Chairman I am afraid we must leave the matter alone. Mr J. R. Pritehard I regret that the Chief- Constable has taken any responsibility in the matter. The Chief-Constable said that he had; taken I no responsibility for/what had occurred. He had merely stated! what- took place. The Rev Ceidiog Roberts said that he under- stood that a case had recently been brought against a policeman for assault at Bethesda. The case was tried before the Bangor magi- strates, and the summons was dismissed. He would like to know whether the Chief-Constable proposed takings further action in the matter. The Chief-Constable said that he did not pro- pose to take any further action. The magi- strates were unable to agree, and he had! done nothing except removing the constable to an- other part of the district, which he thought ad. visable under the circumstances. Mr D. P. Williams asked whether the case was dismissed because the magistrates were I divided. Mr John Hughes (one of the Bangor magi- strates) said they did not come to a. decision be- cause they were divided. The real result wa,g that it was open to bring on an action again. Mr Thomas Lewis (another Bangor magistrate) sai«fthat there was no chance "of their arriving) at a decision. What was there to be done but to dismiss the case? Mr J. R. Pritchard said that the magistrates: had taken some trouble to explain their position with regard to this matter. Would thev explain it as to the other case Mr Thomas Le^is No, no. A Member: Of course not (laughter). THE EXTRA CONSTABLES. Mr J. Jones Morris called attention to the last paragraph in the minutes of the meeting of the joint committee held on the 28th November, which was as follows :—"Resolved also that the subject of the strength of the police force in the county be further considered, at the next (ordinary) meeting of the: standing joint com- xnittee. He thought, though the matter had not been placed on the agenda, that now was the proper time to consider the matter. The Chairman Don't you think that will come on again ? The Chief-Constable said that as far as he could see at present he thought that the service of the extra constables would be required for more than three months. Mr J. Jones Morris Will it be three months hence ? The Chief-Constable I cannot say. Mr J. R. Pritehard asked whether there were disturbances at Bethesda recently. The Chief-Constable said that they occurred continually. He had taken the men on for threa months. Mr Menzies And the cost is included in the estimate for the nest, quarter. Mr W. J. Parry It was stated distinctly that the matter would come before us at this meeting. Mr J. Jones Morris said that now they were asked to sanction the employment of the men for three months more, and he thought they should have satisfactory reasons for that. The Chairman said that his view was that the matter had been settled, but some members of the committee seemed to think that it had not. He would ask the clerk for his opinion. I The Clerk said that the question of having them on for three months was settled at the previous meeting. Mr W. A. Darbishire said that there was no mention about three months in the minute, only that the force be increased temporarily. At the meeting of the 12th December there was merely a letter from the Home Office sanctioning the employment of the extra constable. There was no mention of three months, and the word tem- porarily had been put. in for the purpose that these constables should be treated in a certain manner with, regard to their contributions. The case was quite simple, and: he had; endeavoured to put it as it appeared to an unprejudiced observer. Mr J. Jones Morris said that the. meeting of the 12th December was a special meeting, where- as the minute he referred to specified "the next ordinary meeting," which was the meeting that day. The Chief-Constable said he took it that the extra men would be kept en until the committee decided' that their services would be unnecessary. He thought that he had suggested three months at the time. Mr J. E. Greaves1 said he thought Colonel Ruck had said that. he would not be prepared to engage them for less than three months, but their services were to go on. Mr W. A. Darbishire: They were engaged generally. The Chief-Constable The understanding was that they would be taken at any rate for three months. Mr J. R. Pritehard Cannot we pass any re- solution to-day on the matter? The Chairman I am waiting for that. Mr Isisard Davies moved that the men be engaged for a further period of three months. Mr Greaves Until their services are no longer required. I don't see how you can fix any definite time. Mr D. P. Williams I think it is very desirable that the question should be brought up for dis- cission at each meeting. Mr C. H. Darbishire said he thought it was quite unnecessary to pass a resolution. These policemen would have to be there as long as necessary. Mr Greaves said he thought it quite right that the matter should be considered at each meeting of the committee. It was ultimately agreed that the employment of the extra men be continued, and that the matter be further discussed at the next meeting. FINANCIAL. Mr J. Menzies submitted the report of the finance and audit committee, also an estimate of the expenditure for the next quarter, and an ap- plication for orders and payment of the police fortnightly salaries. Six tenders for the supply- ing of police clothing had been received, and the lowest (£305 12s 2d) was recommended for adoption. It was also recommended that white metal instead of brass be used for the police helmets, and: that the stripes on the arm should. be broad instead of narrow. Mr J. R. Pritchard seconded, and the report was adopted. LORD PENRHYN AND MR W. J. PARRY. Mr W. J. Parry had given notice to put the following questionsi (postponed from the last ordinary meeting) -1.. To ask Lord Penrhyn if he is prepa.red to substantiate or withdraw the charges made by him at the last meeting against Mr Henry Jones, the chairman of the lock-ort committee, and his son. 2. To ask Lord Pen- rhyn for the name of the informant or informants in this matter. 3. To ask Lord: Penrhyn to name the house at which the five shots were let- off on a Sunday morning named by him at the last meeting. 4. To ask the name of his inform- ant. 5. To draw attention to the fact of the wholesale possession of firearms by the men now working at the Penrhyn Quarries, and its danger to the community. The Chairman said that he had received the following letter from Lord Penrhyn, dated from London, the 18tlh inst. -.—"Dear sir,—I see that the agenda paper for t'he neit meeting of the C arnarvonsbire Joint Police Committee contains notice of questions which Mr W. J. Parry pro- poses to put to me, and which, as a matter of fact, were introduced by him for discussion at the last meeting of the committee. Under the circumstances, I must ask you to be good enough to repeat to the committee what I previously wrote to you, viz., that as the mover of the said questions is Mr W. J. Parry, against whom I have commenced an action for having circu- lated false and malicious libels upon my self, in connection with the strike at my quarries, I must decline to ehiter into any discussion with him upon any matter arising out of the strike. I much regret that absence from Wales will prevent my attending the meeting.—Yours very truly, Penrhyn." Mr W. J. Parry said he was sorry that he should not have the chance, to ask Lord Penrhyn to reply to these questions. The matter his Lordship referred to was quite distinct from his question's. He believed it was due to that com- mittee that he should justify his action in piac- ing these questions on the agtendia. It would be J wiithin the recollect ton of the members that Lord Penrhyn. read out of a. paper at a meeting of the committee held in August last a paragraph in whteh Mr Henry Jones, the chairman of the strike committee—and care was taken to emphasise his connection with the strike—and his son had hooted a certain Melancthon Williams and his wife and niece, whilst they were going to a funeral. Mr Henry Jones's solicitors communicated with his Lord- ship, stating that there was no truth in the alle- gations, and subsequently, his Lordship's soli- citors admitted that as to the son the statement was ndt sufficiently supported by the evidence, and that he regretted the statement made was in that incorrect. But no apology was made, and his Lordship refused to give up the name of his informant. In the face of these facts, he considered that he was quite justified in bring- ing the matter forward. The other question had reference to the firing of revolvers. His Lordship had ,said ttoafc five shot's had been fired by the house of a. man working in the quarry, suggesting, if not..stating, that these shots had been fired by strikers, but he did not give them even the. name of the house. They had ample proof that men in the quarry let off shots in public places. One of them, .who had fired a revolver from a conveyance, to the danger and fright of ladies and children, was fined 5s and costs by the Bangor magistrates, while a re- spectable resident of Bethesda was fined: 20s and coats simply for standing on the parapet and refusing to move off (Cries of "Shame" and "withdraw"). He wanted to show how these different people were treated. He was sorry that Lord Penrhyn screened' himself be'hind I something else instead of coming forward like a gentleman to prove or to withdraw these charges (hear, hear). Mr Issard D'avies said that Mr W. J. Parry should d'o what he askea Lord Penrhyn to do. At the last meeting of rhe committee Mr Parry said that the police accompanied the men who had been liberated from Carnarvon prison to Bethesda. The Chie_f-Constable denied that, and 'he asked Mr Parry to witRlraw. Mr Parry said he,could prove that the men were accompanied by police all the way to Beth- esda, ami that while —— Mr J. E. Greaves I must protest against a discussion of this kind. The Cr airman inade some inaudible remark to Mr Parry. Mr Parry You allowed Mr Ispard Davies to speak, and you should allow me to answer him now (hear, hear). Mr Issard Davies: The truth upon this matter would be Col. Ruck's statement. Mr C. H. Darbishire Why don't the two gentlemen go outside? (laughter). Mir W. A. Darbishire said that this was no matter for the police committee. He confessed that he did not wish his time, which was valu- able to him. to be taken up by discussions of this kind (hear, hear). Mr W. J. Parry I have had my say, and I don't wish to say any more (laughter). GROCER'S LICENCES.. The Chairman moved:—"That representation be made to the Secretary of the State that in the opinion of this committee power should be given to the justices of the peace to refuse or suppress grocer's licenses Where they think proper or necessary, and that such licenses be placed under Ihe entire control and supervision of the existing or any future licensing autho- -J,. Mr J. E. Greaves seconded, remarking that the Act. on question was the most mischievous and iniquitous ever placed on the statute book (hear, hear). To abolish it altogether would be the proper thing to do, but they must take what they could get. Mr J. R. Pritehard, as who had held a groicer's license at one-time, but who had given it up in disgust, supported the motion. Mr J. Jones M'orrs staid that if the chairman would agree he move a. resolution in favour of t'he atbolitiof the grocer's licenses, Mr Greaves: You wiH nullify the present intention. I After further conversation, the motion was unanimously carried. NO SECONDER. The Chairman, who said that his difficulties in the chair was his reason for doing so. moved:- That the clerk 'be instructed not to place on the agenda. for any future me-eting any notice of motion which does not refer to matters dealing with the business befoie such meetings or with its duties as a police committee." There was no seconder. THE PENRHYN TROUBLE. BETHESDA TO BE A POLICE DISTRICT. LETTER FROM THE HOME OFFICE. SPECIAL CONSTABLES RECOMMENDED. Mr Issard Davies got up to move a resolution of which he had given notice. Mr J. Jones Morris I think it would be ad- vantageous to the committee that the letter from the Home Office should be read first. Mr Issard Davies I should like to ask why. I don't know what it is or why it should take precedence. Mr J. Jones Morris: Because it deals with Bethesda. i Mr John Hughes said he should like to know now members got to know the contents of such lettsrs. He did not know the contents of this letter. The Chairman I don't think anybody does. It was decided that the letter from the xiome Office should be read first. The letter was as toilows Dear Sir,—I am directed by the becretary of State to inform you that he has been ta communication with the Chief-Constable re- specting the renewed disturbances at Bethesda. and learns with much regret that it has again been found necessary to apply to. the military authorities for assistance in preserving the peace. He is far from saying that this step was not justified by the conditions prevailing in the dis- trict, if the police force of the county cannot be kept at such strength as to be able to deal efficaciously with such disturbances as occur at Bethesda or which may occur in any county in which it may be necessary for the local authori- ties to call in the military forces of the Crown for the purpose of maintaining order. But such circumstances ought to be regarded as wholly exceptional, and Mr Ritchie would strongly de- precate the policy of relying on the military for this purpose (hear. hear). Every effort should, in his opinion, be made to obtain extra police tem- porarily from other forces. and when this source is exhausted, if practicable, to swear in a force of special constables, and Mr Ritchie earnestly trusts that the authorities responsible for the preservation of the peace will do their utmost in this direction before looking to the militarv authorities to assist them in the discharge of the duties incumbent upon them. I am, sir, your obedient servant, Kenelin E. Digby." The Chairman added that he had received the letter on the 10th inst.. and that he had written in reply to say that it appeared to him that the preservation of the peace rested in the hands of the magistrates of the county Mr J. R. Pritehard said that it was a pity that important communications like this could not be printed on the agenda, so that members could see them be %e -hand. Mr Issard Davies I take it that my resolution comes on now. Mr J- R. Pritehard We took number 9 on the agenda instead of No. 7. Mr J. Hughes said that the discussion of Mr Davies's motion should proceed. Mr W. J. Parry said they did not know of this letter. The Chairman: I think that the letter having been read should be discussed. Mr J. R. Pritchard said that important letters like this should be printed with the minutes of the committee. They saw that the Government did not like sending for these military continually (hear, hear). If they looked: at the Chief-Con- stable's report, they would see that the magi- strates were responsible for it. He thought that the matter should be brought before them, and they should really try to see if it was not pos- sible to do something other than bring the military down. He moved that communications of this kind be printed with the minutes in future. Mr Greaves said that the magistrates were the j responsible people. Let them decider matters. He suggested that a copy of the letter be sent to the magistrates. A member asked who was to decide the im- portance of communications. Mr Pentir Williams second Mr Pritchard's i motion. Mr D. P. Williams seconded the suggestion of i Mr Greaves. He would also like a copy of the resolution passed some months ago by that com- mittee, recommending the appointment of special constables, to be sent with the letter. Mr W. A. Darbishire supported the suggestion, which was made by himself. Mr Thomas Lewis said that he did not see the utility of sending a copy of the letter. The sug- J gestion had been discussed and found impractic- able. Mr J. R. Pritchard's motion was carried. ) Mr W. A. Darbishire said that the way to proceed with the special constables would be to appoint two or three hundred persons, and they j must all go. Mr Thomas Lewis said tha.t they had con- j sidered the matter, its he had said. Mr Abel Williams: May we all see the day when the parties will read between the lines of this letter and' act sensibly in future (hear, hear). Mr Jones Morris said he would propose "that in view of the disturbances, this committee is of opinion that the time has now arrived Mr Issard Davies How does that arise upon this matter? Mr Abel Williams; I propose that Mr Issard Davies should be allowed to go on. It is his turn (laughter). Mr Issard Davies again asked how did Mr Jones Morris's motion arise in the matter on the agenda. The Chairman It will not do any good or any harm. Mr Issard Davies I ask you whether that arises upon the resolution. The Chairman No. Mr J ones Morris Do you rule me out of order: The Chairman: Yes. Mr Issard Davies then moved the following resolution :—"That the standing joint committee is of opinion that the urban district- of Bethesda. together with portions of the adjoining rural district be formed into a police district." Mr Davies said that he made a. similar motion before, but in deference to the wishes of the com- mittee he had withdrawn it. The reason then given for asking him not to press the motion was that an appeal was to be made to the religious and labour leaders of the district to do some- tLing to prevent these disturbances and to bring a ou ,ie pacification of the district generally. An appeal was made, but so far from attaining the desired result, matters had become worse. r rom occasional occurrences, these matters had developed into organised riots. They had men premeditated and precomceted ("no," "no"). Yes, they had, with the view of terrorising men, by violence or destruction of property. He had no hopes of any settlement being arrived at. He was told that both sides regarded it as a. fight to a finish. When they saw industrial disputes in other parts: of Wales and; in England settled by meeting together to discuss matters, it was very sad to see that they had a. nobleman and Christian gentleman of whom in every .respect they were proud, and his workmen, people of an honest, sturdy race engaged in a struggle which was a public scandal, yes, he repeated it, a public scandal They had heard talk of methods of barbarism, and they had them. these methods of barbarism at their own door (hear, hear) He thought that the time had now come when they should make those who called for the tune nav for it (hear h«r) They ha<i they could to pacify them. There must be vast in J?ngi°e <jowi141086 hSh. tim. ,hJ 41,6 <*>>"■ d-w- Mid it was Hc Captain Stewart seconded. The motion was carried without further dis- cuss'.on. Mr W. J. Parry only voting against it. --J Mr Davies then moved "Tllat a committee be appointed to consider and report upon the area o," the proposed police district, the number of oohN\>ib'es that should be assigned thereto and V"n milv upon_al3 points necessary for the format .on of a police district and that the com- mittee do report to a. special meeting of this oomm:,i -p." j Mr :\he9 Williams seconded, and moved the election of the following as a oonrmittee Mr Kneeshaw. Mr Issard Davies, Captain Stewart Mr Robert. Hughes, Mr J. R, Pritehard, Mr j' E. R-r.-a-e-s. and Mr J. Jones Morris. JEbia vwt agreed I Mr J. Jones Morris said that if he had btDt aillowed to move his resolution, it might have obviated the necessity for the committee. The Chairman This is in crder really. Mr Ccioiog: Roberts moved the suspension of tíhe standing orders in order to allow Mr Jocüs Morris to. prooted. Mr W. J. Parry seconded. This was carried by a majority, but Mr Join Hughes pointed ovt that it was not a two. thirds majority Mr Jones M'orrs (warmly) Sooner or later, you will have to £ ear this Mr Issard Davies Let us know what it is. Mr Jones Morris said that his motion was toi the effect that the committee appoint Mr Menzies and Mr D. P. Willies to take sucS Steps aJS they might think fit to try and byir-g: the dispute to a termination. The Chairman I don't think it is in orde: Mr C. H. Darbishire Said it might be vc-iy kind and generous in every respect, but it had nothing to do with that committee. Mr Abel Williams said it directly affected the of the county. Mr J. Jones Morris And the expenditure tf the county. The matter then dropped. VARIOUS. A letter from Home Secretary requesting tbØ observations of the committee on a communica- tion sent to him by Mr Ciedwyn Ower], that the increased salary should take effect as from th 50th May, 1901, the date on which he com- menced the extra duties, was submitted, and eM the motion of Mr J. Jones Morris, it was decided that the clerk should reply to the effect that as the salary was a. liberal one, the committee woiiid be quite justified in paying it from the date of the committee. A communication was read from the clerk to the justices of Conway division relating to a. room at the new Town Hall, Llandudno, which will be available for the holding ot petty'sessions. It was decided to inquire as to the rent asked icr the room. An agreement relating to the use of the Gai-d Hall, Conway, for the purpose of the holding of petty sessions therein, will be submitted for the chairman's signature, and signed. A letter was received from the War OfiiCB in reply to the application made for the paymen- of JE15 14s 3d the cost of fitting up stables for thb use of the military at Bangor, stating that th charge was not one which could be borne by Army funds, and therefore he regretted that ha was unable to admit the claim,—was submitted. It was stated that the money had been raid by the committee, and that this letter meant thati they would not be refunded. The following copy of a resolution passed by, the Llanddeiniolen Parish Council was submitted, viz. :—That in consequence of the repeated re- presentations made to this Council for the urgent need of a police cell for the villages of Ebt.itzer, and Clwtybont in order to enable; the police olficef to better maintain peace and order in the said populous district, we earnestly pray that your committee will take such measures as will secure what the inhabitants and this Council deem to be an absolute necessity."—It was dtecided that that surveyor look out for a suitable house and re- port. ANOTHER SKIRMISH. A copy of a resolution passed "at a. meeting of the inhabitants of Bethesda and district, re the petition for military aid for thef-e working at tb.3 Penrhyn Quarry recently sent to the Horna Office," was submitted. Mr Issard Davies said that he did not thh-k: the statements contained in the letter should go uncontradicted '('"Drop t, drop it"). Letters- had been received from South Wales warning people that a concerted attack would be made lpon those now working in the quarry. Mr J. 'R ¡Pntchard asked whethy- Mr IssardS Davies had a resolution to move on the matter., Mr Issard tDa-vies T am discussing the letter. Mr J. R. 'Pritehard 11 want to know whether Mr iDavies has got a motion or an amendment to move. Mr W. A. 'Darbishire said he thought all tits outside the province of the committee. No vio- lence on the part of the police was suggested, and lie did not see why they should discuss (it. Mr Issard Cavies said he wished to explain) his reason for making the statement that thø disturbances were pre-concerted. The Chairman said that aU the discussions with reference to the Penrhyn dispute had bee m ltra vires," and his position had been one of great difficulty; 'but things being on the agenda,, he could not prevent discussion. The letter having been read, he ruled that Mr Davies could: speak to it. Mr W. A. Darbishire moved tha.t the letter be left on the table. 'Mr Abel Williams seconded. After .some cross-talking, Mr Davies proceed- ed to say that letters had been received from! men in South Wales warning people that these attacks would be made, and that it was per- fectly well known in the neighbourhood the attacks would be made. Twenly-thiee houses — non-strikers' houses — were damaged, and he was informed that lights were .shown in the strikers' houses to distinguish them from the others. The evidence at the recent assizes al&oi showed that there was a concerted meetinsr ati the station. He did not enter the merits of th case. but there could <be no dcubt but- that thew were concerted riots. Ir W" J. Parry sa.id he should like to see t11", *WS referred to Pr°duced, and he denied that, °r"a?-Td attack" mischief had betn done by lads from 15 to 17, and the police had not tried to deal with what happened. He blamed these proceedings as much as any- one and knew they had dene the striken" rot good, but lia-rm. ff The matter was then allowed to drop, and the meeting terminated.
