,TEE. ANNUAL REIPORT AND FINANCIAL STATEMENT. Mr J. F. Roberts., in the absence of Mi's lOcxxidy. the hon. secretary, sutbmitted the an- nual report and financial statement. The num- ber of subscriibers has latterly considerably in- creased, and many useful g.ifus in kind have been received and used. Assistance in kind: Jiaa been freely given, ailtar investigation, in all cases deemed deserving, and inilway fares have been pa,:d for men seeking work, for wife and children to join the husfband, and for several persons .in ill-health to get special ad- ;rice. The very wet weather of last winter necessitated considerable expendi'uie on boots, to enable children togelt dry shod to school. ^Through the i&stkrura.'entaiity of the society many adult workers received gifts of boots, or liad their boots repaired. The free meals for Hinder-ifed children were be-gun the first wce-k in January. and continued through February and March. Lists of the names of necessitous children were dbtained from the heads of all ffahe elementarv schools in the district, and ",he 'a.1 names so obtained were* t'n iough.'y investiga- ted (by the Charity \e.' <ciat ion's Agent. iTIiiobets were given to 160 children, and the difference in their apoearance after two or three weeks was most marked, and gave Sub- stantial evidence of the wisdom of giving these meals. 'Gifts in kind were sent by Messrs Hooson, E Owen and Sons, E. B. Jones, and Jolul Owen, .la¿'ocfstIr.eet. The amount saved by wc- kirg people in- the town by means of the thrif.L department now exceeds £ 200 a year, as compared with P,140 in the first- year. Tihe withdrawals bv the de- positors in the course of the year are steadily ideioreajsiing, so that nearly the whole amount of the savings will be paid out when the strain or the winter months is most severe. The work of the lady collectors in' charge of the .various districts has been most praiseworthy, and it is to their regularity and careduln-ass tha.t the success df the thrift department of the Qhar-iy Association is greatly due.
MAY E. HiUGHEIS, Hon. Sec. Thrift Department. The receipts (including balance of JBS 14s 4d V!l Ifrom previous year) amounted to J3125 7g 2d, and the payments to jeS2 19s lid, which leaves a balance of' L40 76 3d. The. sum of JS15 3s 2d was paid in hospital fees. railway fares, nursing, etc. L12 10s to agent; £8 7 s Id for printing, stationery, 'postages, and advertise- ments and j359 19s 8d by way of allowances to poor, in clothes,, boots, coal, groceries, etc. The free meals fund shows a deficit of £ 6 lis 3d, 'but a grant of L7 10s promised by the (County Council has not yet been received. fThe accounts were audited by Mr A. C. Bur- gjasB. Air T. W. Griffith proposed that the several retports and financial statement b? adopted. iMr G. A. -Humphreys seconded. Air O. W. Roberts called attention to the rfatft that J618 DCs had been paid to an agent. Seeing the small amount of money which had ibeen administered, he asked whether the sum was not excessive. The Realtor replied that the view which the Ocwnmittee tcok of it was that the agent had ffiiven mulch more valuable servicee than the remuneration which he had received. The re- ceipts amounted to £ 123 7s 2d, but out of that the cost of administration was P,20 17s Id, which seemed a somewhat large proportion of the amount of money dealt with. But they must rememiber that they could" not measure the work of the association by that standard'. The free meals, had to be organised and at- tended to. Then, there was the thrift aepart- tmenlt. The great work of the committee was to 'consider, and, if they could, to realise the merits of the respective cases brought before them, and how they, could help those cases. In the coarse off investigations maybe that they would come across a. IMlv who wouLd take care of an old servant, and, "provide her with the necessary gifts to tide over her troubles or afflictions. They had cases of people giving clothes, etc., far specific objects through the iinisdnuRonlaiaty of .the jassocratjon. It was capoesibJe, indeed, to measure the work of the association by the amount of monev it ad- ministered. The object df the association was .to help each other in the best possible way (bear, hear, and cheers). iMr O. W. Rclbeirte said that it would be tadvisaible, if possible, to get a voluntary agent. Twenty-five per cent. which was spent in ad- ministration, would go a long way to relieve the poor. C!l The Reictor replied that the duties of an agent took up a. con&ideira'bie time, because the association worked in innumerable ways. Mr O. W. Roberts: Perhaps the committee will take my suggestion into considerat ion. 10 'On. The Rector: The appointment of an agent is in the hands of the committee. The com- mittee were very pleased with the wor'k done hy the agent last year. Mr G A. Humphreys asked whether Mr Ro- berts could suggest the name of anyone who would do the work. If not, they should not expect the ladies to do more work "in the future than jn the past (hear, hear). Alderman R. Roberts stated that the com- mittees had reduced the expenses to a minimum. He could not see how the committee could dis- pense with the. services df a paid age-it, who h-i '\Q e.trtre<rt<A at, tVte. Town Y:.il. -t.W& tW ti»re« times a week, take names, and investigate the cases. The reports were then adopted.
THAMES. On the proposition of Mr W. 01. Williams, seconded by Air J. O. Thomas, a hearty vote of thanks was accorded to all ille officials, and the committee, etc., for the exoei'en: services they had rendered during tne psst- year.
RULE,1. The rules, as amended by a sub-committee, were. with a few alterations, adopted. Under the new rules guardians of the poor are quali- fied to be members of the executiv! committee Mr 0. W. Roberts, w-ho proposed the amend, mem, declared that it was an insult to debar ■guardians from being members of the executive committee. They were not debt,red from sub- scribing to the funds. Mrs Marks seconded. The Rector said that th-3 object of the asso- ciation was to prevent people from being paupers. When once they had cc.me oauners. then it was the duty of the guardians to look after them. However, the association had been persuaded that it was illegal for guardians to be members qf the committee. 'Mr J. Ropar Dawson contended that it was illegal, and an offence punishable under one of the Poor Laws. Guar,"ans were prohibited from spo r -y paying man's railway faie to anof r pant ctf "ie, country when he was likely to become to another union. The Rc D. Davie su)> I't'd the amend- ment. He did not tic:t the Act applied at all. It .was an a'\ a ire to have on the committee men who knew the pc-or. As already stated, the amendment was carried.
(PRESIDENT AND VICE-PR.ESIDBNT.S. ILord Mostyn was re-appoinitod president, and the following vieenpTesiden&s: Lady Augusta Mostyn, Aliss Barker, 31rs Walker, Miss A. Barker, Mr John Walker, Mr J. Adey Wells, Mr .J. 0. Thomas, Mr George Barker, and Mr W. Henry Jones (chairman of the Council).
ELECTION OF OFFICIALS. On the motion of Mr J. F. Roberts, seconded by Mr J. 0. Thomas, Mr W. J. Gardner, mana- ger of the National Provincial Bank, Ltd., was elected hon. treasurer, as successor to Mr Percy Walker, who has removed to Chester. The resignation ofJM.rs Gooddy as hon. secre- tary was received with regret and on the pro- position df the Rector, seconded by Mr Squir- rel!. Mrs Elsie M. Marks was pressed to under- take the secretarial duties once again. The Rector sa.id that it was a hard and responsible work, and placed the town under a great obligation to the secretary. The association was to be congratulated upon its secretarv for next year.
THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. The following were elected members of the Executive Committee: Rector, Revs David Da- vies, W. E. Jones, J. F. Reece, T. E. EPaffn, W. Phillips, D. Gwynfryn Jones, Mrs Hughes (Rectory), Mrs Reeves Hughes, iMiss Jones (Rrynymor), Mrs Raymond, Mrs Roberta (Hruy- tonI, Mrs Roberts (Bryir Celyn), Mrs Thomas (Gwynllys), Mrs Wills, Mrs Edwards (Latimer House), Mns Rolbe-rts (Podeu-ron).

You and) ourself WHEN YOU ARE ILL, DO YOU KNOW WliAT MAKES YOU ILL? Know thyself is a useful proverb. But how many people do know themselves? Do you ? heii you are ill, do you know what is making jUU ill? Could you give a reason? Could you guess the cause? if you have an abscess, there is no doubt about your condition, There is the sore place to be seen. Similarly, men or women with a cold on the chest and a severe cough, have definite symp- toms and can desuribe precisely what is wrong with them, when the doctor calls. But most people are not ill in these plain, obvious, maiter-oi-fact ways-many times in their Lves. They may be constantly ill, in vague, uneasy ways—Beyond realising one or two vague causes of distress, apparently of little moment, iney seem well and feel they ought to be Well, Only—they never are well. One gets up in the morning tired. Another feels dull and heavy. Another liushes in the face and has In I palpitation on mounting the stairs. Still another feels depressed at the end of the day aaid can- not sleep at night, though tired out. Or, the tongue is coated. Food does not tempt and gives no pleasure. Eating is an or- deal and pain follows it—sometimes sickness. Dizzineois occurs. Flatulence is common. The -eL system becomes irregular. Any one of these symptoms makes a man or woman feel ill. No need for the doctor, they say. Nothing really the matter. But they go on suffering. Why ? The stomach is the cause. The stomach is the most used, most delicate, most important organ of the body. It is worked harder than any other. It literally keeps the body alive in the same way that the tire gives steam for the engine. Put it ever so slightly out of order and there is trouble. A distressing symptom is set up. Disoomfort follows. A felling of actual illness sets in. Next time you feel that way don't worry and suffer. Go to your chemist. Ask for a medicine he knows—a medicine millions know—Mother Seigel's Syrup. Take a dose as directed, day by day, faith- fully. You will find the system toned up. The little disquieting worriea disappear one by one. Aigain, why? Mother Seigel's Syrup deals with the stomach and makes it do its own. work in the proper way. Indigestion, the root cause of nine-tenths of human suffering, once corrected, you get well. Your other troubles arising from Indigestion disappear—thev cannot exist with a digestion set right by Mother Seigel's Syrup. Mrs. Pearce, of 7, Ann's Terrace, Chadwell Heath, Essex, writing on April 30th. 1908, says:- Whatever I ate caused me intense pain, and I was tormended with wrndi and bile., The trouble was indigestion. Nothing relieved me until I tried Mother Seigel's Syrup. Within half-ari-hour of my first dose I felt relieved, and my complete cure soon followed."

HIRING AGREEMENT TAKING GOODS FROM THE POSSESSION OF A BAILIFF. At Lianrwst, on Thursday, betore Judge iMossf, a somewhat peculiar case was heard, in which Kd'. Hy. Jones, county court bailiff, Con- way. sued D. Dean, manager for Messrs. Fred Rooerts and Co., furniture dealers, Old Coiwyu and Rhyl, m respect of an assault. Mr. J. Porter \Messrs. Porter, Amphlett and Jones) appeared! for the plaintiff- it appeared that on 18th September the plaintiff distrained upon the goods at Chelten- ham House, Colwyn bay. Mr. and Mrs. Coole, who lived there, informed the bailiff that some of the goods belonged to her daughter and son-in-law, a Mr and Mrs Thaw. On the fol- lowing Monday the defendant called in and asked Jones whether he had levied on all the furniture in the hou3e, whereupon the bailiff replied in the affirmative. Dean then said that .'e he had levied on goods which had been obtain- ed on the hire system, and would take them away. The bailiff said that the defendant would remove them at his own risk. Dean made the further remark that he would remove them before the landlord was in the following I morning. The defendant and Coole then took I the furniture away. Dean gave a list of the articles to the bailiff. I The defendant stated that he was not aware that he was doing anything wrong, and ex- pressed his sorrow for what he had done. His Honour observed! that it was a serious risk to interfere with goods which were in the possession of the court. The defendant would be fined £ 3 and costs, and the goods would have to be returned. Their owners*could claim I them in the ordinary way after the landlord had been satisfied.

£ NATIONAL EISTEDDFOD 1910 LIVELY DISCUSSION OF NEWSPAPER REPORTS. THE CHAIRMAN CONDEMNS GOSSIPPING. A special meeting of the Executive Commit- tee of the 1910 National Eisteddfod was held at Colwyn Baf on Monday. The Rev Meredith J. Hughes (Vicar of Brynymaen), presided, in the absence of the Chairman, Mr James Am- phlett. The Finance Committee reported upon the engagement of a general secretary, and a draft of the advertisement was read to the meeting, which was approved. The salary is to be £100, with 5 per cent. commission on subscrip- tions and prospect of an honorarium from sur- plus profits (if any) of the Eisteddfod office accommodation to be found by the Eisteddfod executive; term of engagement from date of appointment to the close of the whole transac- tions of the Eisteddfod. It was decided to ad- vertise forthwith It was decided to hold the Eisteddfod in the third week in September. A lively discussion took place on the fol- lowing paragraph, which had appeared in the Liverpool and Manchester Press — A curious difficulty has arisen in connec- tion with the preliminary financial arrange- ments of the Executive Committee of the Colwyn Bay National Eisteddfod. As is customary, the promoters had prepared a bond to the value of £ 1,200, and this they presented to a bank in order to be in a posi- tion to draw such moneys as might be re, quired. Each of the signatories of the bond became liable to the extent of JB5. It was estimated that the Committee would require to draw on the account thus opened to the extent of about JB700 on presenting the bond for 21,200 to the selected bank. However, the Committee were requested as a matter of form to sign a second bond, the effect of which would be to make each of the signa- tories liable personally, not jointly and severally, to the extent of JB700. Several of the Committee have declined to sign such a document.
A REPLY. Mr Geo. Bevan (chairman of the Finance Committee) mentioned that it had appeared in the daily papers, that some "serious hitch" had occurred with regard to the guarantee bond at the bank. He thought it was very un- .fortunate that any such statement should have been made. It was untrue. No one up to the present had had an opportunity of "re- fusing to sign the guarantee bond," and he considered it a most mischievous and unfor- tunate thing that the paragraph should have been published ("Shame"). The Insinuation was that it would be difficult to find members to sign the guarantee bond. There was jne thing that had struck him about the Eistedd- fod-there had not been a movement in Col- wyn Bay during his recollection that had bad such unanimous and splendid support as this question of having the National Eisteddfod cf 1910--(applause),-and he was certain that there would be no difficulty whatever in getting any number of gentlemen to guarantee the amount required by the bank. He should like to say that the proposal made at the Finance Committee that all members of that committee should sign the bond was in order that every member of the Finance Committee should then feel personally responsible. They did not wish this to restrict them in voting money required, but when gentlemen signed a bond of that sort it would be some little safeguard against extra- vagance. On behalf of the committee, there were JB2000 worth of guarantors, and in the event of an overdraft the bank would come on the Executive Committee in the first place, and not until the Executive Committee had failed to pay would the bank come upc:i the gentlemen who signed the band. Such a con- tingency was very remote, and there was no likelihood and no risk of any member of the Finance Committee declining to sign the bond. It was very unkind and very mischievous to make the suggestion contained in the news- papers' paragraphs, and it was evident that the reporter had been spoken to by some member. or he could not have said about anyone refus- ing to sign. That was not true, because they had not had an opportunity of refusing yet.
PESTIFEROUS GOSSIP. The Chairman (Rev Meredith J. Hughes) who spoke with unusual warmth, said he was very glad Mr Bevan had brought the matter forward, because the thing had emanated from pestiferous gossip that had tried to strangle the movement ia its infancy. It was unfor- tunate that people throughout England and Wales, who had no means of knowing about the great local enthusiasm for the Eisteddfod should be misled in this way. When he saw the paragraph in the paper, he thought that if they could get hold of the author of it, the whole Executive Committee ought, to sit rather heavy upon his chest (laughter). There was nothing So damaging to an institution as to spread abroad, a suspicion as to its financial spread abroad a suspicion as to its financial position, and steps should be taken to disprove the remarks that had been published. Rev Peter Jones Is it not possible to get these papers to withdraw? Mr W. Jones (National and Provincial Bank): I think this suggestion that someone has inspired this paragraph should be with- drawn. The Rev Wm. Hughes (one of the general secretaries pro. tern.) said the paragraph con- tained several things which were false, and calculated to create wrong impressions. There was nothing new in the terms of the bond, which were similar to those of the Llangollen and Carnarvon bonds. He had written to the papers contradicting the erroneous statements. He did not think any member of the Finance Committee would refuse to sign the bond, which the bank required.
STORMY SCENE. Mr J. W. Lumley: Some strong language has been used in regard to this matter. It was quite uncalled for, particularly from the Chair- man (laughter). This question of the bond was introduced here in public last Monday night. It was a report from the Finance Com- mittee that the bank required a bond for JB700, and that the members of the Finance Commit- tee were expected to sign it at the beginning. Now, I consider that that bond is an unreason- able one, a very unreasonable one, and I see nothing very much wrong in the information which the reporter of the paper got. I do say that the reporter in putting it into the paper did what he had no right to do. I will openly and candidly state that I was the man who stated it ("Shame"). The Chairman More shame to you then. Mr Lumley (continuing amid considerable interruption) Wait a minute before you con- demn. Never condemn a man until you hear what he has got to say. The Chairman: That is quite enough, i (Cries of "Yes, quite enough"). Mr Lumley, proceedin,g, repeated that the Ibank's request for a bond of £ 700 was un- reasonable. He was eUon"ly against it being signed by t'^e Finance Committee ("Shame"). He would not bird It'T-elr to be responsible for C'AL"O to the ban]- "h n they had in their possession itue ^ocuraen., ■hich the general secretary of that commit ce had handed to ithem. Wh would net the tan1 advance £ 700 I upon the general guarantee bond already put in for over £ 1200? Personally, he disap- proved of a bond for £ 700 which made each person who signed it individually respons.ible j tfor the whole £ 700. Why should not .the bank I accept the guarantee bond already in for £ 1200 ? (Becauee ,the e were names on that bond whicji were not orth a ru&h ("Shame"). Why do vou say "Shame," sir? The persons who brought that guarantee form arouna ask- ing people to sign it had a commission upon the signatures ("No, no"). I can give vou chapter and verse. 'Before I signed tha.t paper for £ 5 1 was told by the person who presented it to me that he was paid for coming round ("XO, no"). Now let us face the matter bojdjy. Here is a document in the hands of the bank which is a guarantee from people who are well alble to meet their liaibiHtiea If the liability occurs, there it is for them, and let them take it, instead of asking "or an individual respon- sibility by persons up to £700. I want you to see the effect of this. document. What is there rto prevent the hank from dropping upon me if they get me to sign it? They are not likely to get me to sign—.(laughter)—but should I do so what is there to prevent them from drop- ping upon me? Is it likely .they will drop on their cTLStomers ? Not very likely; they will taike jolly good care of them, but they will go for someone thay can get £ 7C0 from (inter- ruption).
A QUESTION. Mr J. M. Poiter: I should like to ask, has this bond been submitted to this committee or not? Mr Lumley Theac was a. bond submitted, and the question was asked —— Mr fPorter I should like to have an answer, yes or no, if you don't mind, Mr Lumley.

I A DISCLAIMER. Air Fred Griffiths (editor of the "Weekly .News") made it quite clear to the meeting that the paragraph was not sent by himself or either of his two colleagues then present representing "The Pioneer" and the "Colwyn Bay Herald," and his disclaimer was applauded. The Chairman said he repeated his assertion that it was a pestiferous gossip tha.t had started the troulble. "We are not," he added, "in any immediate danger of any sort. 'No one has been asked to sign anything beyond the k5. 'Is theie a single man amongst us who is going responsible for R,700 on his own account ? Is any bpm&-er such an iciot as to expect anyone to d9 it? iMr tLumley Yes. The Chairman: Oh no, we are living in a sane country laughter and hea.r, hear). We have got the money, we hav? got the men, and please God we are going, to get th? sue-ess (hear, hear), and whatever may interfere with us at the commenlceiment of the cause, I think this lesson will be very beneficial.

1 ANOTHER OUTBREAK. The Chairman said. he thought "the storm" wae over, but now there was another reverbera- tion (laughter). He did not think they cou!d ask the treasurer to make a statement in ipe- gard to that matter, which was. not before, them at all. The bond had been prepared, but no one had been asked to sign it at all iMr Lumley You have allowed Mr Bevan to introduce the matter. The Chairman The only matter before us was in regard to the paragraph which appeared dn the newspapers, falsely stating that there was a, "financial hitch." There has been no pos- sibility of a "financial hitch" yet. We are anticipating matters by a long way, and I re- I¡U&:l to allow the wording of the bond to be a. eulbject of discussion to-night. Some of us have striven very mulch in order to further the interests of the Eisteddfod. Some of us have travelled long distances through storm and darknesa to attend the meetings, and when we see in the public -newspapers a suggestion, that there is to be a "financial hitch" that would obstruct, the whole thing -at the com- I mencement of the work, wet,, are perfectly sa,va,ge (hear, hear). Now, there is no "hitch," and the bugine&s of the meeting is over. Mr Lumley A storm in a tea cup.
QUESTIONS IN PARLIAMENT ALTERATIONS TO THE CARNARVON POST OFFICE. In the House of Commons on Tuesday, Mr Ellis Davies asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of unemployment in the town of Carnarvon, he will take steps to have pro- ( posed alterations in the post office buildings commenced immediately. Mr Buxton Plana have been sett!ed, and I hopo shortly to be able to ask the owner of the property to have the alterations put in hand.
REPAIRING CARNARVON CASTLE. Mr Ellis Davies asked the First Commission- er of Works whether, in view of the number of men who are now out of employment in the town of Carnarvon, he can see his way to em- I ploy an increased number in the repair of Carnarvon Castle. Mr Harcourt: Carnarvon Castle is not a building suitable for this kind of work, for pointing the walls is the only repair possible, The work has to be done with great care, and the winter is not a suitable time to carry it out. I, therefore, regret that I am unable to adopt my hon. friend's suggestion; but I shall take care that as many men are kept em- I ployed as is consistent with the circumstances.
I CARNARVON COMMON LANDS SOLD. Mr W. Jones, on behalf of Mr Ellis Davies, asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he I would state when, and to whom, the Crown had parted witlftho land it formerly owned in the ( parishes of Llanllechid and Llandegai, and what consideration it received therefore in each j case. I Mr Hobhouse I am informed by the Com- missioners of Woods that there have been only two sales by them in the parishes named, viz.: (1) to the Hon. Edward Gordon Douglas Pennant, dated 10th August, 1858; of 6,129 acres of unenclosed waste land, subject to rights of common, and 6 acres of enclosed waste land, all in the parish of Llanllechid, together with the collection of Tents amounting to £ 6 9s lOd per annum, minerals reserved, consideration per annum, minerals reserved, consideration jBl,759 10s (2) to James Tomkinson and Henry Platt, dated 5th March, 1891, of land contain- ing 5 acres, with a messuage known as Bryn Hall, and minerals under 242 acres, part of the above-mentioned open waste, all in the parish of Llanliechid, consideration £ 12,000.
A SUCGESTIOiN WORTH NOTING. (To the Editor of the 'Herald.") Shr,-Witb the view oif meeting the distress arSaing from unemployment in the winter, would it not be well if our Council were to have the large timber trees in the woods cut down and more paths made ? The sale of the timber could, be made to meet the cost, there being more than £ 1000 worth of timber avail- able. At the same time young fir trees and pines i might, be planted. These firees. would greatly add to the attractiveness and salubrity of the district. Deciduous trees are beautiful in summer, but the putrefaction of the dead leaves in- autumn is very injurious to people I With weak lung's. 'Fin- trees and pines are not open to this objection. /Moreover, the town ought to become known as a most desiraJble winter resort; and if our streets and .gardena were filled with conifers many more visitors would be attracted to it at this time of the year and in winter. A profu- sion of evergreen trees in our streets would be much pleasanter than the stumpy elms and sycamores that now stretch their bare arms to the breeze in winter.—Your, etc., A RATEPAYER.

) iMr Lumley The treasurer said he had a. ibond prepared, !but had not brought it -with I him, and it. was ready for signature. The question was asked what was the amount of I the personal liability of each one who signed it, and the answer given was JB700. Mr Porter: I take it that .Mr Lumley'6 an- swer is No. The Chairman: It is No. Mr Porter We don't officially know what are the terms of the bond. We are .rather anlticipatinig matters, and Mr Lumley is quite out of order in condemning; this bond and frightening people against signing it on the strength of a newspaper paragraph oif such a mischievous character- That paragraph goes on to say what the terms oif the bond are, but the bond has never been (before us, so how can there be "a hitch?" Let us have the bond, .and then we shall siee if there is "a hitch" or not. IMr iLumley: I hope Mir Porter under- stands —— The Chairman (interrupting Mr Lumley) asked Air Porter to proceed.

It was a merely casual interview I had with a parson, I thought was a friend, and the ap- pearance of that paragraph I know nothing about. il am not responsible for it. I didn't authorise it. Mr J.

Hughes proposed that the Fi- nance Committee be asked to bring the bond iforward. Mr Lumley was the only one not signing it. Mr W. Davies: We wa.nt a better clearance on this job before we leave (laughter). In the opinion of the speaker, Mr Lumley was quite right in his objection to the terms of the bond. iMr E. H. Davies asked either the chairman or the treasurer, but not Mr Bevan, to explain whether each signatory was individuaily re- sponsible for the whole of the £7010.
