COLWYN SEWAGE DISPUTE APPEAL JUDGMENT RESERVED. In the Court of Appeal, on Friday, the case | of Wm. Horton v. the Oolwyn Bay and Colwyn 1- Urban Council came before the court on appeal by Mr Horton from a judgment of Mr Justice Bigham on a special case submitted to him i by the umpire in an arbitration between the j claimant and the local authority. It appeared that the Urban Council resolved to carry out a system of sewerage under the £ local Act. In 1903 they gave notice to the claimant that, the sewer would pass through ov under certain streets, roads, and lands, of which I he was the reputed owner. The claimant gave notice that he should require compensation, as damage would be done to his land. In 1994 two arbitrators were appointed. They did not make an award, and failed to appoint an um- pire. Therefore, it was agreed to continue the arbiitration and to aqrpoint Mr John Thomas Wood, civil engineer, Cook-street, Liverpool, as umpire. The umpire ultimately awarded the claimant JE871 10s compensation for damage done to the land taken for intercepting and outfall sewers, and JE758 in respect to constructive damage done by the constructing of the pumping sta- tion and reservoir, providing tha.t the claimant should be held to be legally entitled to compen- sation in the latter ease. The question came before Mr Jufit ice Bhr. ham. who decided that the claimant was not entitled to the £7.58, as the worlds complained of were constructed upcal respondents' own land, and no nuisance was complained of. It was against this decision that the claimant, now appealed. The court reserved judgment.

WHEN ALL MEN ARE EQUAL How Healthy Specimens of Men and Women are Built up in the United Kingdom. If mankind is fated not to be equal so far as riches are concerned, there is little reason, with few exceptions, why all should not be equal in the enjoyment of good health. The wise houswife makes a point of keeping Vi-Cocoa handy in her cupboard, for she knows that it is always to be depended upon, and that in a sixpenny packet of Vi- Cocoa she has full value for her money. Before the bread-winner leaves home early on a cold or damp winter's morning she forti- fies him with a steaming cup of Vi-Cocoa on the principle that a good beginning is half the battle- And when he returns at night, wearied with the labours of the day, she will at once refresh him with another cup of this unique Food Beverage, knowing that a tired hungry man is only too ppt to become an angry one.

COLWYN BAY COUNCIL THE LIGHT RAILWAY. On Tuesday a special meeting of the Council was held to re-consider certain matters con- I nected with the light railway extension from Rhos to Colwyn Bay. Mr. John Williams 'I presided. Mr. Hugh Hughes, in pursuance of notice of motion, moved That the amendment pro- posed by Mr. E. H. Davies, and seconded by Mr. Joseph Dicken, at the Council meeting held on November 12, 1907, re light railway cables and the succeeding amendment proposed by Mr. William Davies and seconded by Mr. J. Dicken, re Jarrah wood paving on the track be rescinded." In moving his proposal, Mr. Hughes contended that it would be advantage- ous to lay the cable in the fcotpath near the kerb, and that tar-macadam paving was cleaner and more sanitary than wood blocks. I Mr. Bliss Hill seconded. The Rev. Wiliam Hughes supported, and read various letters from engineers and others favouring tar-paving, and the laying of cables in the footpath.
A BREEZE. Mr. William Davies moved that the Council adhere to its previous decision. He went on to refer to Colwyn Bay's experience of various syndicatesi and- Mr. Lowe protested that Mr. Davies was out of order. Mr. Davies insisted that he was quite in order, and a sharp passage of words ensued between the Chairman, Mr. Lowe, Mr. Davies, Mr. Hugh Hughes, iMr. Bevan, and other mem- bers, Mr. Davies persisting that he had a per- fect right tu refer to the experience of the town in connection with the Public Hall Com- pany, the Gas Company, and! the Pier Com- pany. During the battle of words, such phrases as "It's a lie" and "he has been telling lies all this week," were used by Mr. William Davies. The Rev. W. Hughes asked for the protec- tion of the Council and for the withdrawal of the accusation that he had been telling lies. Mr. WiRiam Davies refused to withdraw, until Mr. Gamble expressed the opinion that the words should be withdrawn, whereupon Mr. Davies retracted the words complained of. For a few minutes comparative calm reigned, but it was not long before the Council was but. it was not long before the Council was agaiji in an uproar at the statements made by Mr. Davies, who protested at the action of the Rev. W. Hughes ih writing for the opinions of engineers and others. He contended that the Light 'Railway Company should adhere to the agreement made between the Council and the officials of the company. The company re- the officials of the company. The company re- cognised one part of the agreement in regard to the poles, but refused to recognse the agree- ment. in regard to paving. He thought if the Council had had a little more backbone the company would have come to terms and got on with the work long ago. Mr. Dicken agreed. The Council had changed their minds so often that the Light Railway Company would now take little or no notice of any decision of the Council. Eventually, Mr. Hugh Hughes' motion was carried by 9 votes to 6.
TAR-PAVING VERSUS WOOD BLOCKS. The Chairman then moved that the Council offer to split the difference with the Light Railway Company by allowing them to put the cables under the footpath, on the condi- tion that they put wood-paving on the track for the length of one mile, to be selected by the Council, and tar macadam with wood blocks along rails only for the remainder. Mr. Joseph Dicken seconded. The Rev. W. Hughes proposed an amend- ment to the effect that the paving be tar-maca- dam all the way with a single line of wood blocks along the rails. In the course of his remarks he mentioned that he had gone to a good deal of trouble to bring about a settle- ment of the matter with the Light Railway Company. Mr. E. H. Davies asked at whose request the Rev. W. Hughes had gone to such trouble in the matted Was he acting for the Council? The Rev. W. Hughes said he had acted en- tirely On his own initiative, and the only per- son he had visited was Mr. Horton, whom he had urged to use his influence to bring about a settlement so that the work might go for- ward. Mr. Bliss Hill seconded the amendment. He did not think Mr. E. H. Davies was justified in attacking the Rev. W. Hughes. It was the duty of every member to study the inter- ests of the ratepayers, and to do what they could to get information. Mr. E. H. Davies said Mr. Hill misunder- stood him. It was not right for anyone to go from the Council and approach the Light Railway Co., either directly or indirectly, with- out the sanction of the Council. The Rev W. Hughes said he ivent to see Mr. Horton not from the Counciil, nor as a coun- cillor, but as a ratepayer. Mr. Dicken supported It-he motion. He argued that wood blocks were the best form of paving, and that they were not insanitary as suggested. Mr. Bevan suggested that the Rev. W. Hughes' .amendment be altered, so as to read "That the Council, provided that the Light Railway Company undertake to complete the line before Easter, agree to allow tho light. railway track being laid over its full width of seven feet with a foundation of concrete, of a quality to be approved by the surveyor, with a top of five or six inches of tar macadam, with one row of wood blocks end on and trollied along each side of the rails, and that the Council allow the company to lay the cable in the footpath near the kerb." The Rev. W. Hughes adopted the suggestion, and after a long wrangling discussion, it was carried.
THE PROMENADE ENTERTAINMENTS. The Council then proceeded to consider the matter of the foreshore lettings. A letter was read from the directors of the Pier Company in which they expressed satis- faction at the decision of the Council to pro- hibit entertainments on the Promenade after 7.30 in the evenings but stated that the direc- tors could not accept the proposal to allow a committee of the Council to regulate their business, and suggesting that the committee of supervision he deUeted from the resolution of the Council. A warm discussion followed, Mr. T. H. Mor- gan proposing that the Council ignore the Pier Company altogether, and proceed to open the tenders for the letting of the foreshore. Mr. Bliss H 11 seconded the motion, but after a lot of talk it was agreed that a small com- mittee, consisting of Messrs. Hugh Hughes, David Gamble, and John Jones, be appoint.-d to meet the directors of the Pier Company to confer on tho matter, and report to the General Purposes Committee.

ARVON LIBERAL MEETING PRESENTATION MADE TO MR. WILLIAM JONES, M.P. MASON'S AMUSING REMARKS ON SOCIALISM. The annual meeting of the Arvon Liberal I Association was held at iPenm-aenmawr, on Wednesday, under the presidency of Mr. Henry Davies, schoolmaster, Talybont. There was a large attendance of representatives, including Mr. Pentir Williams (secretary), and Mr. W. 0. Williams (hon. treasurer). On the proposition of the Chairman, a vote of condolence with Mr. Lloyd-George was passed.
WANTED—A WELSH-ENGLISH REVISING BARRISTER. Alderman E. Roberts, Llandudno, stated that the gentleman who had recently been appointed as Revising Barrister was a mono- glot Englishman. He did not think that was quite the right thing, especially in such Welsh districts as Arvon and Anglesey. He proposed that the Association call the attention of the Lord Chief Justice to the matter, and request him, when making another appointment, to select a competent man* who would be conver- sant with both languages. Mr. Griffith, Deiniolen, seconded. Mr. J. Pentir Williams wished it to be under- stood that he had made no reference to the revising barrister and had not brought the matter forward in any shape or form. It was the first revision for the present barrister, and he had done his work excellently. His only fault was that he did not understand both lan- guages. But it had always been so far as he remembered. Mr. W. 0. WiTliams a,-ined whether Mr. Pentir Wiliiams could give any instances where he (the secretary) had felt any incon- venience because the Revising Barrister did not understand Weilsh. The Secretary explained that some inconven- ience was bound to arise, inasmuch as the evidence of .several witnesses had to be trans- lated, and translations at best did not always have the same effect as the original evidence. The motion was agreed to.
LEASEHOLD ENFRANCHISEMENT. Mr. W. H. Rhodes, Penmaenmawr, sub- mitted a resolution passed by the Penmaen- mawr Liberal Association asking Mr. William Jones, M.P., to bring before the Government the question of leasehold enfranchisement, and to request the Government to introduce legis- lation at an early date. On the proposition of Alderman W. J. Parry, Bethesda, seconded by the Rev. D. P. Davies, Penmaenmawr, the motion was unanimously agreed to.
ELECTIONS: Mr. P. H. McClement, Penmaenmawr, was elected chairman, and Mr. T. W. Griffith, Llandudno, and Mr. D. G. Davies, Bethesda, vice-chairmen. Mr. W. O. Williams, Llan- dudno, declined to be re-elected as a treasurer, and he was cordially thanked for his services in the past. Mr. R. E. Jones, Llanberis, was appointed to succeed Mr. Williams as trea- surer. Mr. J. J. Marks, M.A., and Mr. Isaac Slater, both of Llandudno, were elected auditors. I
SYMPATHY WITH ELLIS O'R NANT. The Secretary stated that he had received a letter from Mr. Ellis Pierce (Ellis o'r Nant) regretting, through ill-health, he could not be present at the meeting. Mr. W. O. Williams observed that Mr. Pierce was one of the martyrs of 1868, and he had stood, valiantly on the Liberal side ever since. He proposed a vote of sympathy with the old warrior in his illness. The motion wat agreed to.
THE NEW CHAIRMAN. Mr. P. H. McClement then took the chair, and thanked the representatives for the hon- our they had conferred upon him. He pro- proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the retiring chairman for his services in the past. The Rev. Arvon Davies, Llanfairfechan, se- conded, and the motion was passed, Mr. Henry Davies briefly responding.
PRESENTATION TO MR, WILLIAM JONES, M.P. The next item on the agenda was to pre- sent Mr. Williairi Jones, M.P., with a testi- monial from the Liberals of the constituency. Alderman R. Roberts, Llandudno, said that he had fulfilled the trust reposed in him. He had great pleasure in handing to the Chairman a book which included the names of all the subscribers, and also a cheque for the amount subscribed. The Chairman said that Mr. W. Jones wn,s not only respected, but loved by his Liberal friends in the Arvon Division, and it was a pleasure to note that their member was equal- ly respected by both sides of the House of Commons. -He felt that that testimonial ought to have been made many years ago; but .since the movement had been promoted it had met with better response thaai he had anti- cipated. He had great pleasure in handing to Mr. Jones a cheque on behalf of the subscribers. Mr. William Jones, who was enthusiastically received, thanked the subscribers for their kindness. He did not thank them for the cheque, but rather for the good feelings which prompted the testimonial. He had never worshipped money. Far more valuable to him was the good feelings and the kindly opinions of the general public, and, in par- ticular, those of his constituents. Alludlimg to the- Small Holdings Act, Mr W m. Jones hoped that the people would bring pressure to bear upon the authorities to puii that beneficent and far-reaching Act into opera- tion. It wa.s not the first time that such an Act had been promoted, 'but it was the first time that measures had been adopted by which the land coaid be brought to the people (cheers). They had now an opportunity of obtairuinlg small holdings and allotments (loud applause Afte.r settling; the land question they should iprooeed to deal with leasehold enfranchisement (cheers). And means must be provided by which the interests of those who had invested their money should be secured (applause). The Tories could only offer to the people tariff re- form, as compared with all the reforms in the liberal programme. This tariff reform was drawn across the track- to preventt the Govern- ment dealing drastically but justly with the land question, which was at the bottom of all social reform. Three great measures were to be brought forward in the next semion. He hoped the education question would be settled once for all, and the Licensin,? Bill would, he., hoped, be one of tho most important social reforms o* this century. The temptation to drink should be lessened, the Sunday closing

I MABON ON SOCIALISM. Mr W. Abraham (Ma.bon), M.P., upon rising to speak, was warmly received. He said that nowadays they were threatened by Unionises who were not, united', but he failed to under- stand either their unionism or their unity (laughter). Mabon replied to some statements on Socialism made at a Primrose League meet- ing at Abergele. He read that, at that meeting the vicar said that the Atheist Socialist he- lieved only in himself, and if once England -was governed by him she would descend to a ■ tenth-rate power and be swept off the face of the earth (laughter). "There may be in this coun/tiy," said Mr Abraham, "a few revolu- 1 itioiiary Socialists, but they are very few, and 'as compared with the evolutionary" Socialists they are only one in a thousand, if more than one in a million. Is it fair to dub every So- cialist an Atheist ? Would it be fair to dub every Churchman a bigot because we know it-here are a few who would send Welshmen and Englishmen to the stake, as the Roman perse- cutors did, for refusing to pay some rates which their consciences told them they ought not to I pay ? (applause). I say it is no more fair for the vicar of Abergele to make such a sweep- dng charge. They want to dub us all 86 thieves and robbers—it is an old Tory dodge (ap- plause). It was stated at the same meeting thaJt. the House of Lords is a safeguard fo" religious and social liberty. Good gracious ■ ■(laughter). Does that man believe we are all blooming fools i" (toud laughter). Turning to the press taible, MahOn salid, "Piut, it down!" a remark greeted by another burst of laughter. Continuing, Mr Abraham said that Radicals were all Socialists in the evolutionist sense, ibut he stood there, on behalf of the millions of workers in this country, to say that th-y would never participate in robbing anybody (cheers). They proposed to nationalise a good many things, bvt fair value would be given for every- thing, and even when they did that it would pay the country well to adopt the policy in the long run (applause). A public meeting wias held in the evening under the presidency 0f Colonel C. H. Darbf- shire, the chief speakers being Mabon and Mr Wm. Jones.

I COAST EROSION (TNTEtR.HSTI,NG SUGGESTIONS BY MR J. E. GREAVES.) As briefly stated in last week's "Carnarvon and Denbigh 'H(/mJd," Mr J. E. Greaves. Lord Lieutenant of Carnarvonshire, was call ed upon to give evidence before the Royal Commission on Coast Erosion, on Friday. Mr Greaves stated that the population of the county was nearly 124,000, acreage 565,yvO. and seaboard about 120 miles. A penny rate J produced £ 2,600, the rateable value Le.ug £ 663,431. The coast of Carnarvonshire wa> tor the most part a succession of rock hcad- lands with sweeping bays, between. The cliffs of the bays were nearly alli composed of glad.oJ drift, gravel, and similar deposits susceptible of erosion. For many mires round the extreme point and along the north-west coast the shore was rock bound. The witness gave detaii.s as to the erosions and accretions at various points and the measures taken to meet them. He believed that the icontrol of the foreshore might safely and advantageously be entruit 'd to the county council, Avhich would act as the eyes and ears of the Department interested, the Boaiu of Trade. The council might act through a coast defence committee, to oonM-'t of members of the council and certain number of co-opted experts and others from outside tfhe oouncfl. The duties of the committee should be (1) To act as commissioners of sewers ard levels c-viet- suitable areas and where no such bodies at present existed. (2) To hold preliminary inquiries when loans were asked for for the purpose of s defence. (3) To advise private owners and others a, to the best, and most approved methods of coast defence. of4)or0°.i!m? T/g,istCr and «P-to-date olans witlnn l w. irnd ,'accretions on the coa.t their causes" axTeffectT' ,t<0gether Wlth (5) To report at least once a year up.m all matters affecting the coast a^id foreshore. (6) To assist the Government Departmert in any way desired. The initiative should rest with the county council committee, and he suggested that the money should be borrowed oil the security yi the rates, and, in the case of private individu- als, on the security of the property. 1 b committee shouifd have power (to construct WCUKS subject to the approval of the Gove-N Eld^nS1 -t" • Tbe °WnerS of Property '"V, *1 e a WK;(1 111 the election of reT>,ese:r- the commfttee^in tlbe diT6°tly rePresented «" owners were renreH aS m>aci;in boards.

i NOTES ON FOOTBALL. HOLYHEAD BEAT CARNARVON. A coast league match was played between Holyhead and Carnarvon on the former team's ground on Saturday. In the home team R. C. Jones was put at centre, Rowlands ,going inside right, with Hugh Roberts outside. The brothers Brown played on the left, and were in good form. The homesters got five goals. R. C. Jones and Will Brown getting two each, and Hugh Brown one. » ROOSTERS VANQUISHED. The North Wales Coast League fixture, Ban- gor v. Llanrwst, came off at Bangor. In the first ten minutes or po, the Llanrwst team seemed to have the better of the game, and scored two goals. In the the first half the homesters did not score at all. After resuming the game the homesters scored six goals. Gil- lett, the visitors' custodian, made come excel- lent saves, and Hwfa Williams, who captained the homesters, did himself full justice. The Plan gor men combined well. Mr Beech, of Rhyl, was referee. Re-sult: Bangor. 6; Llan- rwst, 2. it it BANGOR TEAM AT RHYL. The Bangor Combination team played Rhyl at Rhyl, and were beaten by four goals to nil. Matters were slow at the .start, end to end plav being the order. A corner forced by Rhvl was smartly cleared by the visiting custodian. Seveial attacks were made on the Rhyl goal. < < < LLANDEGAI'S VICTORY. At Llandegai on Saturday. Maesvgroes were .9 beaten by siy goals to one. The game had nardlyT started when the homesters scored wo goals. During pressure one. of the home Je- fenders handled, and the penalty which fol- lowed proved to be the only point for Maesv- groes. Llandegai were well balanced, and combined well. Hwfa was the visitors' cham- pion, and their custodian also displayed bril- J liancy on several occasions. • LLANDUDNO AMATEURS. j Llandudno met Cohvyn Bay in the second round of the Welsh Amateur Cup at Llandud- no. Great, interest was taken in the meeting. owing to the teams having met a fortnight previously in the Coast Amateur Cup at Col- wyn Bay, 'when the homesters were successful.

Monmouth- shire should be included in the scope of the Sunday closing law, and social clubs, which had been the curse of OUT youth, should be sup- pressed or strictly -regulated.

He hoped these 'bills would become law iby the end of next year, and if not, then the general election would come sooner than one expevted. Their business was to be ready for that event whenever it should come (applause). A vote of confidence in Mr Wm. Jones and in the Government was passed with enthusiasm.
