PtKSONAL We hear that Mr Wynn, Lord-Lieute-nant Oil Merioneth, is &till very ill. He is in (London. (General .Francis Lloyd will take uip the ponunand of the W NoSh lcrriioiiai Division Ipn January 26ih. The Bishop of St. Asaph has appointed fche Rev Rooert Owen, vicax of Bagilk, Flintshire, to the vicarage of Brvnymaen, Denbighshire. Dowager Lady Carnarvon is among recent anivals in town, having taken Aire Wynne Dinah's house in Bruton-street for a, short time. Mr Laurie Jones, until lecently cashier a.t the Llandudno branch of Lloyd's Bank, lias been promoted to the managership of jthe Lethesda branch. There is a movement on foot in the Welsh settlement, in l'atagonia to erect a public Ihall in memory of the late Principal Mi- phael D. Jones, liala. )Mr John Leigh Taylor, of Penmaenuclia, Hear Dolgeiley, died. on Tuay, aged seventy-nine years. iHe was a J.P. and tD.L. for Merionethshire. The Hon. Miss Yeneta Stanley, youngest daughter of Lord and Lady Stanley of Alder- ley, is progressing splendidly after the re- cent operation for appendicitis, which was performed by Dr. Gordon, of Dublin, assist- ed by Dr. W. [Fox Russell. (Mr Byles, station-master at Bettws-y- Coed for the past ten years, who has been in the service of the London and North MTestern Railway for over forty-six years, has retired on superannuation. Mr Smith elation-master at Market Harborough, has (been a*ppointed to the vacancy. Mr David Davies. M.P., has written to the Montgomery County Council suggesting the appointment of a Director of Agricul- ture, and offering to pay £250 a year for five years towards his salary. The Council Eeartily thanked him for his offer, the con- sideration of which was deferred. Mr J. C. Wedgwood, M.P., has received a letter tfrom the Prime Minister acknow- ledging the receipt of a petition signed by dM4 members of the House of Commons lUTging on the Government the desirability Of including a tax on land values in next year's Budget. Among the list a.re the fol- lowing names:—^Messrs Ellis Davies, Elite Griffiths, E. G. Hemmerde, T. H. ,W. Idris, and Wm. Jones. (Members of the Govern- ment were not asked to sign the /petition. The death occurred1 011 Monday of the IRev Rowland [Rowlands, superintendent minister of the Abergele Welsh Wesleyan Circuit, after a lingering illness. The rever- end gentleman had ministered witih oonspi- cuous success at Bootle, LlanberiiB, Llan- gefni, Abergele, Rhyl, Bangor, and Holy- head, among other places, during the past tiliirty years. IMt Rowlands was a native of Crwvah Coch, Montgomeryshire. He leaves a widow and eight children. Dr. M. J. Morgan, the Mayor of Conway, is a Liberal and Nonconformist, and instead of attending Divine service in his official ^capacity at the Established Church, he proceeded on Wednesday afternoon to his own chapel, where the Rev. Eivan Jones, Carnarvon, President-elect of the National Free Church Council, preached a powerful sermon. We congratulate Dr. Morgan upon his loyalty to the connexion to which he belongs. On Thursday, the veteran minister, the !Rev Owen Evans, D.D., entered upon his eightieth year. rr Evans, who was ordain- ed to the ministry fifty-eight years ago. is still hale and active in body and vigorous in intellect. A few years P-go, flfn th;e .occasion of his retirement from pastoral charge, at the en of fifty years in the ministry, he received a national testimOilll of £1,000 as a mark of appreciation of his public services. The Welsh Folk Song Society has adop- ted an ingenious method of aiding the work which, taken in hand two or three years ago, is being attended wtith most gratifying BnOoees. (With the view of having old songs collected with as much accuracy as possible, (the. idea. was conceived of resorting to the (phonograph, and accordingly, through the medium otf the president (Sir W. H. 1Preet"e), a fine instrument has pre- sented. to the society. The secretary (Mr iL. D. Jones) and J. Lloyd Wiiliiams, the latiter of whom has already done eoccel- ient work in harmonising the songs collec- ited, will now be in a position to obtain per- maaien/t and precise records with the mini- mum trouble. The death of Mr J. Moreton Prichard, J.P., has brought forth expressions of re- gret from many quarters, and his loss will be much felt in Holyhead. For many years Mr Prichard was- one of the most promi- nent inhabitants, and as a public man he oounted for a groat deal. Of late years, he had not so closely identified himself with public affairs, for he was much occupied with his private enterprises in building, etc., but it is safe to assert that had he desired any public position in the power of the elec- torate, it. could have been his for the asking. At many junctures he has been the "most talked of" man in Anglesey, and was al- ways considered to be strong in will and character. In private life he had mastered the art of giving quietly and .wisely, and the public will probably never know the ex- tent of his kindly acts towards the poor, who have by his death lost an ever-ready friend and helper.
