EXPLOITING THE UNEMPLOYED I TARIFF REFORM A DV0CATES_ IN NORTH WALES. (To the Editor of the "Herald. ') iSir,—I am sovry to note that tlie Tariff Re form advocates in iweeb Denbighshire are ex- ploiting t-he unemployed for the purpose of catching voltes. M,r Joseph Chamberlain began it whrn he stated "All we want is fair play in foreign trade. Then there wiil be employ- ment for all who want to work, ;nd with full employment will come a rise in wages and in the standard of living." Since then the unemployed prcYem has been "worked" for all it worth as, a vote catcher by Tariff Reformers. But the leaders cif the movement are beginning to realise the serious danger of continuing to ma^e such rash pro- mises of "work for all." 'So much so that Mr Austen Chamberlain stated in the House of Commons in January last: "I make no claim that Fiscal Reform would provide a cure for evils that are becoming year by year more serious. Lack of employment always has been with us, and we shall always be liable to it, whatever bind of measure we may adopt." Mr Hewins the official representative of the Tariff Reform Commission, has also felt it necessary to correct the rash statement that "employment for all" would follow Tariff Re- form. Mr Hewins states:-—"No responsible Tariff Reformer has ever said that Tariff Re- form is going to provide work for all." This is not correct, however, for Mr Amery in his pamphlet. "The Case for Tariff Ret or m," re- ferring to our imports of manufactured good. remarks: "Practically th? whole of that 100 millions (of imports) represents wages. It seems enough to find work for every unem- ployed man in this country, to give full time to all those partially employed." It is obvious, therefore, that in spite of the denials of leaders, of the Tariff Reform move- ment the unemployed have been exploited by its advocates, and they are being utilised for the purport? of catching vote. in West Den- bighshire at the present time. The leaders of Tarif Reform are well aware that Protection, instead of keeping employ- ment at home, is forcing German manufac- turers to establish works abroad. British- Consul Oppenheimer in his latest report on the trade of Germany makes this fact very clear. He says "Increased Protection at home in- creases the difficulties of export into foreign countflies, either because increased Protection is answered by increased: Protection, as the chemical industry has learned in the case of Austria-Hungary, and the machine industry in the case of Russia, or because m those coun- tries which are not protected, industry works with cheaper raw material—often of German onifin, of"which, e.g., certain British indus- tries have the benefit. The fact is confirmed by the increasing number of German fac- tories established albroad, e.g., the paper in- dustry in the United Kingdom, etc. The Ger- man workman thus loses opportunities of work which, under present circumstances, he can hardy afford to lose." And what applies to Geiman industries ap- plies also to Amerijcan industries, many of which have been compelled, owing to the in- creased cost of production, caused by Tariff Reform, to build factories in England. Tariff Reformers know this. Yet they are now engaged in exploiting the unemployed problem in a manner which is bound to recoil upon them in the future, though in the mean- time it may serve to catch voter;Yours. etc., S. T.

THE TEACHERS' UNREST A TEST APPLIED AT A MEETING AT CARNARVON. The Carnarvonshire covunity teachers met at Carnarvon on Saturday, Mr D. W. Thomas (Llandudno) in the chair. Mr L. J. Roberts, his Majssty s inspector, sutocessor to Air Edward Roberts, attended with his colleagues, Messrs Johns and Matthews, and, <fter some comments on the schemes of work submitted by the Carnarvonshire teachers which, he said, were, on the whole, highly satisfactory, he appea'ed for the -.kindly co- operation of the teachers in the responsible work in which they were engaged. .During the course of the subsequent pro- ceedings it was stated that during the recent conference .between representatives of the teachers and the education authority Mr D. P. 'Williams had asked them what they wanted, and added that Quite sixty of the head teachers in the county had personally assured him dur- ing his periodical visits to the schools that they were quite satisfied with the existing con- ditions of things in the county, and those teachers present who had not made such a statement to the chairman of the education authority were requested to stand up. Every teacher in the room flood up. The teachers then unanimously decided, in view c.f the state- ment circulated to the effect. that a few teachers only are at the bottom of the present unrest in the county, a communication be sent "D to the local education authority to the follow- ing effeic-t :That the'Council of the County Teachers' Association speak and act onbehal-f of and at the request oi the whole body of certi- fieaJted teachers engaged in the county of Car- narvon.
FOOTBALL NOTES (Continued from page 7.) A meeting of those interested in encouraging football amongst 'the youth of Llandudno was held on Friday evening, Mr W. Williams (Lloyd Street), in the chair. It was proposed by Mr J. H. Vincent, and seconded by Mr Hilton, that Mr W. Williams be elected president, Mr W. J. Williams, treasurer; and Mr Owen Jones, secretary, of a league to be called "The Llandudno andl District School- boy's League," the resolution being carried unanimously. t x A football match between Minffordd and Tremadoc at MinSordd, on Saturday, resulted in a win for the former team of six goals to one. « -« Mr Hughes, the president, presided on Wednesday night at a. meeting of the Monrtto TWáles Coast Football Association, at Bangor. J. E. Griffi'th, of the Bangor Club, admitted rough play on hig part at the Bangor and Llandudno League match, and expressed his regret. He wae suspended for seven days. The Llanrwst Club appealed against the sus- pension of a number of players. The suspen- sions were confirmed. Taylor, of the Holy- head Cliib, was reported for having threatened to strike a Bangor player during a match be- ween the two teame, and evidence was given on the part of Bangor, as Taylor was ill and could not appear. Ai proposal by the Llan- dudno Amateur Club to establish a school boys football league was sanctioned. The treasurer, Mr Post, announced a balance at the bank of 21-16.
THE VENICE OF WADES. At the Llanrwst Rural Council on Wednes- day, an application was read from the Eglwys- baeh Parish Council to have the Water-road repaired in such a way as to enable the in- habitants to traverse it without being garbed ic a diver's suit. The road is one of several which lea4 to the village of Eglwysbach, Denbighshire, and over its surface runs a strong stream from the adjoining hills, which, during the winter months, and also after heavy rams during the summer months, makes it im- passable even to vehicles, while at all times it is absolutely impassable for pedestrian^ un- less they wear waders. The suveyor was in- st-iacted to draw out a plan with the view of improving it, and submit an estimate of the cost at the next meeting of the Council."
The Secretary of the London Missionary So- ciety has been in Colwyn Bay this week en- deavouring to secure accommodation for the summer school held in connection with the aest ywc, t
ARCHBISHOPRIC OF YORK DR. EDWARDS AND THE VACANCY. The London correspondent of an influential provincial daily newspaper, writing on Tuesday says; It would not surprise some of the keenest observers of affairs it a choice were made for the vacant Archiepiscopal See of York which will create some sensation, there being good reason to beliA that the Bishop of St. Asaph has highly influential friends, who consider that his translation, especially in view of the part he has taken, and is taking, in the promo- tion of an educational settlement, would be of great value both to Church and State. Dr. Edwards, though consecrated a bishop as long ago as 1889, is now no more than sixty and, while he has been ranked politically as a Liberal Unionist, he was persona grata with the late Mr. Gladstone, who had a high opin- ion of his powers, both as ecclesiastic and ad- ministrator. His transplanting from Wales to York would be no more surprising indeed than that of Dr. Maclagan's immediate predecessor, for Dr. Magee was an Irish dean before he be- came an English bishop. This is scarcely an intelligent anticipation of an event before it occurs, because the Bishon of St. Asaph has frequently expressed his intention of remaining in his present dio- -cese, to which he is attached by more than or- dinary ties of affection. I am very happy in my beautiful home," he is accustomed to say, and 1 am more than happy in my work in the diocese." Apart from that, a Disestablish- ment Bill is promised by the Government for next year, and if there is one thing more cer- I tain than another, it is that Dr. Edwards will not leave his Church friends in an extremity of this description. It is quite safe to say that if the Bishop of St. Asaph goes to York, it will be with the tacit sanction and approval of the leading Churchmen of his diocese and not of his own. The probabilities, however, are that the high office in the Church now vacant will be offered to Dr. Percival, Bishop of Hereford.
CLAIM TO A TREFRIW ESTATE A ROMANTIC CASE: SLOW PROGRESS IN THE COURTS. ( At the Llanrwst County Court, In June, Judge Moss; began the hearing of an action which Elizabeth Jones, Alma House, TPFf-riw, brought against Hugh Sweeney, of Colorado, U.S.A., and others, to set aside a csrtain set- tlement, and to vest certain real estate in the i irightful owner. The case had to be adjourned from time to time, but at the September court his Honour 6aid that he would n >t proceed any further with it unless the defendant paid the (costs, of the day into court. Last Friday, the case was again mentioned to ii;e Judge, when } Mr R. S. Chamberlain (.Messrs Chamberlain land Johnson) said that the costs had been be- fore the Registrar for taxation,^ but two items were disagreed upon. (Counsel's fee and re>- i fresher, amounting to L2 4B 6d and 6s 0<1 re- I spectively, were held by the Reg'etrar to be the costs of the cause. Mr Chamberlain asked for the Judlge's direction in tha matter. Hie Honour replied that counsel's costs and refresher would be allowed. Mr R. S'. OhamJberlain said that he did not think that his 'Honour should adjourn the case i again. Sweeney had received the summons since June. He had been in communication with his solicitor, and all he (SA-eeney) had to do was to produce a certificate of the decree, if any, annulling the marriage of his mother and father. As a matter of fact he (the ad- vocate) believed that Mr Allard was -th<>ut money and without instructions. But there was.a lot of money in that matter. Mr Cham- berlain contended, that the onus otc proving the marriage of the late Maria Anne Sweeney to I John Sweeney and the alleged sabsequont de- cree of divorce had been shifted f' m the plain- tiff to the defendant. (Mr Aliard You make allegations of false representations. It is for you to prove fraud I ,and not for me to do it for you. Hfts Honour: It is for the plain+:ff to prove her case. It is a charge of fraud, and a serious one. Mr Chamberlain: Then I must ask your Mr Chamberlain: Then I must ask your I Honour to adjourn the case, and give me ieave to administer interrogatories +0 Hugh Swteney as to when and. where Maria Ame was married (to his father, John Sweeney, and when and where the divorce proceedings took place and with what result. We must find out to what estate and in what court, as -America :s too large to search its surface lor 6uch a needle, His Honour adjourned the cas* and gave the ) plaintiff the leave applied for.
ACTION AGAINST A CHEF CONWAY HOTEL KEEPER'S SUCCESSFUL CLAIM. At Llandudno, on Thursday, before Judge Moss, an action was heard m which James btott, of the Oakwood Park Hotel, Conway, .:>ptiued as plaintiff, and Louis liurdin, a Frenchman, as defendant. The former claimed j ironi tile latter, who is engaged at Dover, the recovery oi £ 6, under a veroal agreement. Bur- din counterclaimed JtI3 5s., being a week's j wages. I he plaintiff admitted the counter- claim. Mgr. James Porter (Messrs. Porter, Ainpnlett and Jones) was for the plaintiff, and Mr. J. W. Hughes, Conway, for the defend- ant. Mr. Porter explained that the defendant had been engaged by Mr Stott as a chef, in tb« course of an interview in London during the latter end of last year, at which Mrs. Bailey, manageress of the hotel, was also present. It was arranged that he should pay a salary of JS150 per annum, or E3 per week. Defendant came down in December, and it was arranged that his wife should follow and that they should take a cottage from Mr. Stott at a rental of 5s per week. From December until near Easter the defendant had lodged in the hotel 1 because his wife had not followed. Eventually defendant approached Mr. Stott with a request ( that he should pay for the removal of the fur- I niture from London, and at a subsequent inter- view in Miss Bailey's sitting-room, Mr. Stott authorised that Burdin be paid J36, which the removal of the furniture cost, on the distinct understanding that he would remain at the hotel as chef for at least two years. Mrs. Bailey, who was also at the interview, would also bear out what had taken place on that oc- casion. Defendant worked all right until the height of the season. Then, when the house was full, and he had the hotel people practical- r ly in his hands, because they would not be able ( to find another chef at that time of the year, I Burdin applied for more wages, and, under the circumstances he was given 9,3 5s per week, which payment was continued until September. on the 9th of which month he gave notice to leave. On the JL9th September, defendant went for his week's wages, but they were refused I until he had refundied the E6 paid for the re- moval of the furniture, conditionally upon his remaining for .two years. Mr. Hughes questioned lplaiiitiff with the I object of proving that servants were frequently discharged from the hotel. MT. Stott replied that must inevitably happen in a placfc where between 60 and 70 servants were employed. Mr. Hughes, for the defence, said Burdin had been promised an increase of salary in the course of the London interview, provided he gave satisfaction over his duties, and that the L6 had been given to him unconditionally. De- fendant had been obliged to leave the situa- tion because he was too hard worked, his hours being from 8 a.m. to 9.30 p.m., the whole oi the time, particularly during the busy season, being frequently spent in the hotel kitchen. There was never a promise that Burdin would remain two years, and, in giving a week's no- tice he had followed the usual course. Judgment was given for the plaintiff for .£3 andl costs.

ANGLESEY EDUCATION COMMITTEE I Yesterday (Thursday), at Llangefni, Alder- man McKillop, J.P., in the chr-ir. There were also present: Miss Rathbone, Rev D. Rees, Rev W. E. Williams, Dr E. P. Edwards, Professor J. Morris Jones, Messrs Owen Roberts, W. S. Owen, J. N. Thomas, W. D. Jones, S. J. Ev- ans, J. R. Davies, Hugh Thomas, W. Hughes Jones, G. J Roberts, R. P. Jones, J. R. Hughes, R W. Roberts, R. E. Jones, J. C. Jones, R. Lewis Edwards, W. Owen, H. 0. Williams, D J. Elias, with Mr R. H. Williams (Secretary). It was decided to ask Lord Stanley of Alder- ley to interview the officials at the Board of Education in regard to the plans for the Tref- draeth and Llangadwaladr School, the Board having taken certain objections to them which the Committee considered unreasonable. The Committee directed that the Hoard of Education be asked to return the plans of the Rhosneigr and Llanfair P.G. Schools as soon as possible, so that the unemployed might be utilised for the work. The Committee adopted the following reso- lutions re the medical inspection of school child- ren —(a) That all children on the school regis- ters admitted to the schools since the midsum- mer holidays, 1908, and all children who will be 13 years of age or over on the 31st Decem- ber, 1908, be medically inspected; that the children be medically examined three times during their school life; and that the school medical officers do not advise or prescribe by way of treatment, only call the attention of the parents to matters requiring attention. Mr R. H. Jones, of Amlwch, was appointed headmaster of the new-Council School at Rhos- neigr, out of 18 applicants. The others on the short list were Mr A. Llew. Evans, Conwiy, and Mr J. H. Roberts, Waenfawr. Mr W. J. Singleton was transferred to the Park C.S., as an uncertificated assistant. Amidst applause, a recommendation from the School Management Committee was carried that no persons be in future allowed to enter the school premises with a view to utilising children for collecting money towards any object whatsoever. On the recommendation of the School Man- agement Committee, it was decided that the Board of Education be asked to withdraw their objection to the use of slates in the schools, on the grounds that the teachens found them the best apparatus for lesions, and that in no well- ordered school would there be room for the ob- jection that they were cleaned by spitting on them. The Committee also urged the use of slates on the ground of economy. A resolution was received from the Pem- brokeshire Education Authority asking the Committee to join in urging the University College to accept the senior Welsh Central Board certificate as equivalent 1.0 the matricu- lation one. Professor J. Morris Jones proposed that the letter be laid on the table. The matter had been considered by the Senate of the University who had come to the wisest decision possible. The resolution practically asked the Univer- sity to relax its matriculation requirements, which applied to students taking a degree course, in order to admit holders of a certi- ficate which was meant to qualify for quite another branch. He had no hesitation in say- ing that the Senate would not do this. The letter was laid on the table. Alderman Lewis Hughes was re-elected a member of the Court of Governors for the Uni- versity College of North Wales for 1909. The tender of Mr W. Hughes Jones for erect- ing a house at Canol Rhos at a cost of JB183, was accepted.
MINISTER AS LANDLORD RHOSTRYFAN FARMER DEALT WITH YLRY tiAKlJLY. At Bangor Bankruptcy Court, on Thursday, John Uriitith Pritchara, quarryinan, Tyddyn ileilyn, iRhostryfan, whose liabilities amount- ed to £ 121, and his assets to £ 31, appeared for his public examination. Air. J. T. Huberts appeared for the debtor, whose alleged causes ot failure were big rent, no carrier's work, and loss of hay two years ago. lie was, accord- ing to the Official Receiver's statement, a quarryman by occupation, but for the past nine years had devoted all his time to farm- ing lyddyn Heilyn, the rent of which was JB32 a year. He had £100 free capital when he went there. The landlord had distrained be- fore the date of the receiving order for £24 rent, and although he (the Official Receiver) agreed to undertake for the distrainable rent, he proceeded with his sale, which realised JB51 lis. After that sale there remained only a small quantity of potatoes and furniture. In reply to the Assistant Official Receiver, the debtor stated that his effects were sold bv the landlord at prices considerably under their true value. The rent of the premises was muoh too high, especially as they were not fit for a pig to live in. Mr. J. T. Roberts: Was your landlord the iRev. J. Price Davies, Chester?—Yes. And he preferred having the pleasure of selling you out rather than accepting the Offi- cial Receiver's undertaking. A cow was sold for 4-s 6d?—Yes. The debtor added that three pig, sold for £ o, afterwards realised P,6 10s. Mr. Roberts: This minister of the Gospel wrote you a letter in which this appears:- Since you and others refuse to pay me, I cannot meet my liabilities, and am obliged to borrow monev to do that." Is that true? '—No, he is a man who is well to do. Three ministers of the Gospel and Mr. Jones, Bod- aden, asked him to wait for the money. I have lost about J6200 in the ,place, and have had to eat much dry bread. And yet, in these letters he expresses wishes for your prosperity, when the bailiffs were in your house?—Yes. The Assistant Official Receiver: It is only right to say that the landlord puts the blame on his solicitor. He says that he did not know that his solicitor refused the undertaking. He had a letter in which the landlord's solicitor stated that his client left the matter entirely to him. Owing to the action of the landlord and his solicitor, the estate had sustained a serious loss. The Registrar That is obvious. To refuse an Official Receiver's undertaking is the most unreasonable conduct imaginable. The Debtor: A mare and cart were sold for PA 10s, and I had just paid 35s for one new wheel. The chaffcutter and scythe went for Is 9d (laughter). The Registrar: We are all very sorry. He has been dealt with very hardly. The examination then closed.
FiQRTE^COMIN'G CARNARVON .ELECTION. (To the Editor of the "Herald.") iSir,—I see from your paper that several can- didates are coming out at the next, bye-election in Carnarvon, and I hope that the electors will take care to send in a really good man-a man who will look after their interests )n the Coun- cil, and not only :go to the meetings to listen to what other memibens say and give his vote when there is a division on. We want a, man with, a little independence of spirit, a man who will not only act as a Liberal ought to do, but who wailil give a lead to the other councillors, some Qf whom, goodineas knows, need it badly f In my mind, the candidate who most deserves the ratepayers' support is Mr Kay-Menaiee. He is as good a Liberal as anybody in the town, and will speak out his mind without rear or favour. He is just the sort of man wanted, and I am sure his business training and his experience as a civil engineer and surveyor, for 1 believe he is a qualified engineer and sur- veyor, would be of great help to the Council He is closely connected with the trade of the town, and I am sure he would do much to im- prove it, especially as he is holding such an important position in the slate trade. As agent of a very influential landlord, too, no doubt he would be able to do 'a lot of good for the town.—Yours, etc., A WORKING MAN. Carnarvon, November 5rd.
FOOTPATH DISPUTE. The Llanrwst Council recently served Col. Higson with a notice to open a footpath on his property at Llanddoget to the r)ub!ic. On Wednesday a letter was read stating that Col. Higson contended that the footpath in ques- tion was a private one, and only used by his tenante. It was decided to hold an inquiry respecting the disputed footpath.
STARTLING REVELATIONS j WHY WERE CERTAIN NAM'ES )VITH- i HELD IN COURT-r (To the Editor of the "Herald.") Sir,-All lovers of purity. cannot but blush with shame at the revolting revelations dis- closed in your columns this week. That &uch a. terrible state of things actually existed, under our very eyes, in this religious age, and in a small town where one cannot move out without being se?n, seems almost incredulous. To Superintendent Prothero and his officers, we owe a debt of gratitude for bringing this "hot-bed of immorality" to 'the full light of day. And yet, sir, one cannot help but feel that some measure of injustice has been done by refusing to disclose the names of those "re- spectable" young men and tradesmen, who have been in the habit of frequenting this "hell upon earth." Why were only certain names mentioned and others with-held? I think, that in fairness to those who are re- spectable, not only in public opinion, but in life and oharacter, the names of these guilty profligates should be publicly announced, so that they could be publicly gazed upon. It would certainly do more towards creating a purer atmosphere and cleansing our town of this abominable vice, than throwing over them the cloak of secrecy. While they go unre- proved they will only father fresh courage- to follow their evil practice wfth greater audacity Why should there be one law for the poor, and another for the rich? It is to be hoped that those who are expected to give a high tone to the imorals of our town, are in no way implicated' in this disgraceful affair. "Every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should b^ reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest that they are wrought in God." The Superintendent of Police would perform a public duty, if he would give the missing names. Your a, etc., HARRY WILLIAMS, 29, Cambria Street, Holyhead. November 2.
CARNARVONSHIRE TERRITORIALS PROPOSED RE-NUMBERING OF THE BATTALIONS. A meeting of the Carnarvonshire TerritdlI-ial Association was held at Carnarvon, on Satur- day, when there were present: Mr J. E. Greaves (Lord Lieu/tenant), dhairman of the association; Lieut.-Colbnel C. H. Darbishire, C,olo-ne-I H. Savage, V.D., Captain W. A. Tux- Iford, Mr G. F. Yale, Major R H Mills-Roberts, C.lM.'Gr., Captain R. Griffith, Captain G. Drage, Mr H. R. Davies, Captain F. G. Lloyd Prieefc- fley, Mr H. Pritchard, Captain R. Ransome (fsecrettarfy)', and Mr Llywelyn Lloyd Jones (architect). It was decided to ask the County Education Committee to grant the u&e of school grounds in the Council Schools for drill purposes twice a week in any place where there are six (re- cruits within three miles of the county head- qua rtejts The quarterly strength of the Carnarvon- shire Territorial Force was announced. The Denbighshire Hussars Yeomanry had two officers and. 85 men, and are three officers and 31 men short. The Carnarvon Royal Garrison Artillery had six officers and 155 men, and are 52 men short. The seven companies of the 6th Batitalion Roval Welsh Fusiliers had 20 officers and; 348 men, and are four officers and 510 men short. It was resolved tha,t an re-engage- ments for the Territorial Force in this county shall be for a term of one year. This did not ifllfer to enlistments, which are still as before, for four years. iDt, was decided to make tlhe county of Car- narvon one area 'for the purchase of horses on molbiiisatibn. The number of horses required is 62 for the regular forces, and 442 for the Territorial branches. It was also announced that steps are being taken to obtain a plot of ground at Bangor for conducting riding drills. The negotiations are not yeit completed. It was Tesolved to apply to the War Office fur the authority to obtain a lease of the Port- madoc drill hail]. The distribution df the Royal Garrison Ar- tillery was decided upon as follows: -Half a battery at Bangor, half a baJttery at Carnar- von. with an ammunition column at Llan- dudno. It was resolved to repair the Bangor drill (hall and to retain the existing offices at Ar- vonia Buildinlgs and to renew the lease of the Yeomamry atoreTooms for one year. It was resolved to call for amended plans and specifications for the erection of a' drill hall at Llandudno, and' at Carnarvon, for the use of the Roval Garrison Artillery. Captain G. Drage was asked to oommumca.te with the local secretaries of the miniature rifle ranges, with a view of rendering them every possible assisitanoe. It was resolved to engage a caretaker to look iait,er the Aber range and to give him the free use of the cottage. (Correspondence with reference to the extra pay of sergeant instructors of the Territorial forces was submitted, and it was resolved to send it to the War Office initact. It was resolved to expend jBllO per annum on band expenses for the 6th Battalion Royal Welsh FusOlierte. and E25 per annum for the Royal Garrison Artillery Band. I Colonel Daiflbishire proposed* that a grant df £5 be made to the Young Men's Christian Association for its work in camp during train- ing. This was seconded by the Chairman, and carried. A letter was submitted from the Wair Office in which it was proposed to re-,number the bat- talions of the R'oyal Welsh Fusiliers. The reason for this change appears to be tlhait the 7th HalttJalioln (Merioneth), which was trans- ferred from the South Wales Borderers, is in reality senior in order of precedence. Under the new arrangemelIlt the 7th Battalion wditl Ilbecome the 4lth, and the 6tih Battalion (Car- narvonshire) will therefore become 7th. Colonel Darbishire (who commands the bat- talion) had no objection to the proposed. change, and the association agreed to support the War Office proposal.
I WELSH SLATE QUARKIES CASE JURY DISAGBiEE: ONE -AIA-N SPOILS A VERDICT. At the Central Criminal Court, on Wednes- day, before Mr. Justice Bigham, the trial was resumed of Henry Warwick Gyde and Marcus Edlward Septimus Bernard, otherwise Stptimus Marcus, on indictments charging them with conspiring to obtain various sums of money by false pretences in connection with the Welsh Slate Quarries, Ltd., and the North Wales Slate Quarries, Ltd. The case had been before the court for several days. On Wednesday the jury retired to con- sider their verdict, and after an absence of an hour and a half, the foreman announced that ney disagreed. After an address by his Lordship, they again retired, and were absent half an hour. His Lordship, again addressing the jury said "I understand you desire to know if it is possible in a case of this kind for a verdict of eleven in a body to be accepted. There must be a unanimous verdict of the whole. 1 gather from the questions you put that there is only one of your body differing from the others, and I should like to know whether that gentleman feels disposed to tell me what his difficulties are in the case, so that I may, if possible, assist him? The Juryman No, my lord. His Lordship That is enough. I understand from your foreman that you have doiie your best to agree, and that you are not likely to agree. The Foreman I am ashamed to say that is so. my Lord. His Lordship: I am not astonished to hoar vou make thnt statement. Then you will now be discharged. Mr. Elliot: With regard to bail? His Lordship.: I shall nor allow theso two men to go at large at present. I must con- sider it. r I The prisoners were then remanded.
There were nearly a.s many magistrates pre- sent at the Conway Police Court on Monday ae there were oasee on the
NEW LIGHT KAILWAY SCHEME C \RN IRiVON AND THE ANGLESEY TRADE. The information which we published three weeks ago concerning the movement to prO- mote a light railway in the south-eastern corner of Anglesey has aroused a good deal of interest throughout the island and in the town of Carnarvon which the railway is likely, to benefit considerably. On Saturday a re- presentative of the "Herald" had an interview with Mr Thomas Owen, J.P., Rhyddgaer, Dwyran, and he warmly commended the scheme.. Twenty five years ago, said Mr Owen, a ailar movement was on foot, and it was th^n intended to contsruct, not a light railway, but a broad gauge line down to 'the ferry and make a pier across the sands. Mr Owen's brother journeyed to London to interview Mr Wood, chairman of the L. and N. W. R. Cio., on the matter, but for a number of reasons, the scheme was not carried int-o effect. "When I was on the district council," said Mr Owen, we conside-'ed a proposal to make the railway, and we got a surveyor to survey the road from Gaerwen towards the ferry, along the road past Llant^inwen and to New- borough. The land was partly promised us, but I am ,IDri-y to say that the schema feU through." t Questioned 8IS to the value of such a rail- way to the district and to Carnarvon. Mr Owen replied "I have always been an advoc- ate of constructing a railway and I should be very glad to do what I can in support. No doubt the scheme would benefit Carnarvon, for a .good deal of the trade now going to BodoTgan and Gaerwen would be diverted to Carnarvon. It would benefit Carnarvon market considerably, and it would also do a lot of good to Newborough. As to Lian- ddwyn we have beetn trying 'to get a bungalow therej and land was promised, but some people stood against 'the proposal, and now they are heartily sorry they did so."
HARBOUR TRIDST SUPPORTS THE MOVEMENT. At a meeting of the Carnarvon Harbour Trust on Tuesday, Air. C. H. Clegg (chairman) pre- siding, a letter was read from the secretary to the Ratepayers' Association stating that that association had under consideration the ques- tion of the construction of a light railway be- tween Gaerwen and Foei Ferry, and that ex- pert evidence was laid before them by a pro- fessional gentleman from 'Leeds. The execu- tive committee of the association had unani- mously decided to support the scheme, and to move in the matter without delay. Seeing, however, that it was a matter of public im- portance, they were anxious to receive the sup- port of other public bodies, and they would be obliged if the Harbour Trust would nominate any number of members up to six to act on a central committee. Mr. C. A. Jones (chairman of the Rate- payers' Association) explained that the Dwy- ran District Council had had the matter under i consideration, and it was now suggested that the Town Council, the Dwyran District Coun- 1 cil, and the Harbour Trust should join the committee. It would not commit any of those bodies to anything. Mr. J. Issard Daviea You only want moral support? Mr. G. H. Rees As a Harbour Trust we have nothing to do with a railway in Angle- sey. Mr. Wawn They only want moral, and not financial support. i Mr. O. Jones Take a couple of thousand pounds in shares (laughter). The Mayor I do not think that the appoint- ment of representatives will oommit the Trust to any scheme. It is a matter that ought to be considered by representative bodies to see whether there is any advantage likely to ac- crue to the town and to the fund's of the Trust if such a railway were made. Personally, I should not like to say whether it would be an advantage, but I should like to know what other people have to say on the matter. I propose that six members of the Trust be ap- pointed to meet other representatives. Mr. 0. Jones seconded. Mr. G. R. Rees: I move that we do not appoint representatives. We have nothing I whatever to do with a railway on the other side. Mr. J. Issard Davies: I quite agree with what the Mayor has said. They are not ask- | ing for financial help. As far as moral sup- port went, the Trust should help an undertak- i ing of the kind. The original motion was adopted, Mr. G. R. Rees voting against. The Chairman, Vice-Chairman (Mr. J. Issard Davies), Mr. Wyatt, T. Owen, T. 'Morgan Lloyd and O. ijones were appointed to represent the Trust. Mr. T. Owen said that there was no doubt j that a railway from Gaerwen to Talyfoel would benefit Carnarvon. The Dwyran District Coun- ci5 had been moving in that direction for years, and a surveyor had been over the ground. Plans had been prepared, and a good deal of expen- diture incurred. The land would have been got I for nothing. However, some opposition was then raised to the scheme. A number of par- ishioners went about with a petition, saying that the railway would fall on the rates. Car npi-von was looked upon by the Anglesey people as the principal market town, and a railway of the kind would do much good to the town. Mr. Wawn .ave you any idea what the cost would be? 1 Mr. Owen No. The land was then to be had for nothing. Mr. Issard Davies: That would be a very good start. Mr. C. A. Jones said all the details would be laid before the central committee.
GWYRFAI RURAL COUNCIL 1mI FJIRIE BRIGADE PROBLEM. The monthly meeting of the Council was held on Saturday, Mr T. 0. Jones (chairman) presiding. A letter was received from the Carnarvon Town Council stating that in view of the fact that the Gwyrfai Council refused to undertake to defray the expenses of the fire brigade if called1 upon to render service outside the iborough, the brigade would not be permitted to render such service.—The Roads Committee reported having ftilJv considered the letter. They failed to find that the District Council had any light to give such an undertaking as was requested by the Town Council. The Parish Councils, however, had the authority to contribute towards the expenses.—It waa re- Bolved to reply to this effect to the Town Coun- cil. A letter had been received from the County Education Committee stating tha/t several parents in the .Bronyfoel district were unw:ill- ing to &end their children to school if the water from the Cesarea water supply were used at the Bchiool-—The matter had been submitted to the Joea1 managers, and they supported the views held by the parents. The committee therefore requestted the District Council to cut off the eupply. — It was resolvedi that the District Council had nothing to do with cutting off the supply of persons who had no intention of us- ing the water. It was their own work, but they were to do it under the supervision of the authorities. The Sanitary Inspector (Mr R. H. Parry) re- ported thait the numlber of contagious diseases for (the month was nine, as compared with eight for the corresponding month last year. One was a case df Scarlet fever, the others were diphtheria. The Portdinorwic Parish Council applied for permission to extend the electric light wires to the end of ISea View, and' across a part of the Bryneglwys road. The wires were to be over- head, and- it was intended to erect public lamps.—The Rev J1. Owen (Portdinorwic) pfo- THjged that the application be granted.—Mr Thomas Jones (Poirbdinorwic) supported the motion, and it was passed on the condition that the wires be protected, so as not to cause any accident.
The late Mr M. T. Morris, J.P., of Carnar- von, whose death oocurred last week, was a frequent visitor to Llandudno. He was one of the judges in connection with the Welsh Industries' Association recently held at the Town Hall.

"ONlE BY GN1E." Attention was drawn at Tuesday's meeting df the iFestiniiog Guardians, to a poverty stricken family in the Festiniog district. They had. practically no furniture in the house, and sa.t on boxes. The new mfiesion society known as "One by One," were taking interest in them and, had giiven them a. bed. The family con- sis-ted of father, son, and daughter. The son, aged about nineteen, was weak intelectually. He was much given to smoking, and inested on 'having tdbaicioo, come what would. (Mr Tegid' Jones: Is it not possible to bring the son to the workhouse? The Chairman What wiil become ot the t"ather and daughter? Mr Tegid Jones: We must bring them in "one by one" (laughter). The Chairman said the family were not in receipt of relielf, therefore the guardians could do nothing.
