THE CONWAY DISTRICT NURSING ASSOCIATION. The Annual Meeting of the subscribers to the Conway District Nursing Association was held in the Guild Hall (kindly lent by the Corporation), on Tuesday, April 12th, at 3.30 p.m., when the following ladies were present :—The Hon. Mrs Mostyn, Bodysgallen Mrs Rees, The Vicarage Mrs Wood, Bodlondeb Mrs Hartley; Mrs Fincham; Mrs Houlgrave Mrs David Owen Mrs Humphrey Lewis Mrs Porter Mrs Walter Wood Mrs Lee Mrs Hamer Miss Walmsley Miss Jones and Miss Dutton. The Hon. Henry Mostyn took the chair, and in his opening remarks regretted that, owing to indisposition, the Vicar, Rev H. Rees, who presided at the former meeting, was unable to be present, as also the Mayor, Mr Albert Wood, who had a previous engagement. The following report was then read :— The Conway District Nursing Association was formed in Mar"h, 1891, and a meeting of subscribers was held in the Guild Hall on the 19th, and a Committee formed of the following ladies :—The Hon. Mrs Mostyn Mrs Rees Mrs Hartley; Mrs Fincham; Mrs David Owen; Mrs Humphrey Lewis; Miss Walmesley; Miss Jones Miss Conway Ellis Miss Evans; Miss Darby Miss Scott; and Mrs Wood. It was decided to take steps to secure the services of a thoroughly efficient Nurse, and the Committee think themselves fortunate in having met with one who is satisfactory in every way. Nurse Kate Jones entered upon her duties on the 1st of July, 1891, and the manner in which the work of nursing the sick has developed, testifies to the appreciation in which she is held by her patients. In addition to one or two very severe chronic cases, the work has been rendered very heavy since Christmas, owing to the epidemic of influenza, and had it not been for the skilled nursing and attention given by Nurse Kate Jones,—the results might have proved very serious to some of the cases. Since the Nurse commenced her work until the present time, which covers nine months, she has had 72 cases on her books, and has paid considerably over 2000 visits. Unfortunately, the Nurse herself fell a victim to the prevailing epidemic early in March, otherwise there should be many more cases to rep >rt. She was obliged to go away for a change, and we fear it will be some time before she is able to resume the whole of her work. The amount of subscriptions, R52 7s 6d donations, 219 5s; half of the Jubilee Grant, £ 15; and payments from patients, L3 6s 6d; received,—total £89 19s; and the expenditure, which includes the Nurse's salary, her board and lodging from July 6th, 1891, to March the 14th, 1892, expenses of printing, etc., amount to £ 52 7s thus leaving a balance in hand of t37 12s. But, it must be borne in mind that the work has only been carried on for nine months, and that an additional sum of over R20 will be necessary to complete the financial year. Moreover, the Grant of L30 will be reduced next year to L20, and, after that, we shall be entirely dependant upon subscriptions, and we must not forget too, that the donations which amounted to £17 3s cannot be calculated upon as income. In connexion with the Nursing Association a sick fund was also started, as nourishment is, in most of these cases, an absolute necessity, as the friends of the patients have neither the means nor the knowledge to prepare it for them. And towards this, donations to the amount of ZIS 8s; an offertory kindly given by the Rev Henry Rees of £ b and Liebig, etc, supplied by Mrs Mostyn at 17s 4d, gave the Committee a sum of ii24 5s 4d, out of which they have already expended < £ 15 6s 2d, leaving a balance of tS 19s 2d at their disposal. In the late epidemic there is no doubt that many must have died, but for the liberal supply of beef-tea, milk, and stimulants, and numerous other cases have been entirely undertaken by ladies of the Committee, who have supplied all that was necessary. One of the subscribers also kindly undertook a case, and if anv other ladies woul i occasionally do the same, it would help on the work materially, or subscriptions would be most thankfully received, as the Committee consider it a most important part of the work. We must also express our thanks for most welcome gifts of old linen, which is very much needed in some of the chronic cases. April 12th, 1892. Mrs Mostyn congratulated the Committee on the work that had been so successfully carried out by the Nurse for the nine months she had been in Conway, and on the motion of Mrs Rees, seconded by Miss Walmesley, the report was adopted. As the Nurse had had sixteen paupers on her books, and some of them severe and long chronic cases, the Committee felt anxious that there should be a more cordial co-operation between them and the Guardians, and a letter was written to this effect, but not having received a satisfactory reply, it was proposed by Mrs Walter Wood, and seconded by Mrs David Owen, that Alderman Edward Jones, the Guardian for Conway, should be interviewed and asked to lay the matter before the Board. At the request of the Chairman, the Secretary then read the correspondence which had taken place between the Committee and the Guardians, and which was as follows :— To the Conway Board of Guardians. Dec. 3rd, 1891. Gentlemen,—You are doubtless aware that a District Nurse Association has recently been formed in the Borough of Conway. The Committee appointed by the Association meet every Wednesday to investi- gate the cases which are reported to them by the Nurse, and to help when necessary. It is needless to say that this involves a considerable demand on the funds of the Association, especially when long and acute cases are undertaken by the Nurse. The Committee desire to know whether it is not in the power of the Guardians to give in suoit cases a little more liberal help to out-door paupers than has been given in a particular case, to which I have been requested to call their attention. The Committee have no desire whatever to criticise the acts of the Guardians, knowing, as they do, how difficult their duties must often be, but they would respectfully ask the Guardians whether the following treatment of a very acute case of illness is in accord- ance with their usual practice. It is that of Mary Hughes, Chapel Street, who has been a great sufferer from a very serious complaint for many years. For the last twelve months she has been absolutely confined to her bed. During that time, much has been done for her by private charity, in addition to the weekly allowance of 4s made to her by the Guardians. Owing to the nature of her illness, she has required much nourishing food and stimulants. These had been supplied hitherto entirely from private sources. Inasmuch, however, as she is a pauper and chargeable to the Union, when her illness became more serious, it was decided to seek further assistance from the Guardians. Accordingly, at the beginning of last October, application was made to the Relieving Officer by Mary Hughes's daughter for additional help. The Committee do not think it necessary to trouble the Guardians with what took place between the applicant and the Relieving Officer, but will content themselves with stating that it was not till the 23rd of November that an additional 2s a week was allowed Mary Hughes. In the meantime her requirements had been increasing, and the Medical Officer. Dr Prichard, who had kindly interested himself in the case, ordered some stimulants and other things for her. For some reason or other, which it is difficult to understand, no notice whatever was taken of Dr Prichard's order, and neither stimulant, nor lint, nor any other necessary appliance, was supplied by the Guardians. The Committee desire to know whether something more cannot be done for Mary Hughes, and also whether they can depend upon the more cordial co- operation of the Guardians in such cases in the future. —I am, gentlemen, yours truly. To the M. T. E. WOOD, Secretary. Rev W. Venables-Williams, Chairman. January 7th, 1892. Dear Sir,—The Committee of the Conway District Nursing Association have desired me to write and en. quire if you received a communication from them ad- dressed to the Conway Board of Guardians the first week in December, as they have had no intimation oi: its receipt, and would feel obliged by a reply. I am, yours truly, To the M. T. E. Wood, Secty. Rev W. Venables Williams. The Vicarage, Colwyn Bay, Jan. 11th, 1892. Dear Mrs Wood,—Immediately on receipt of your letter I communicated with the Clerk and Relieving Officer, who informed me that the woman to whom you called my atteution had previously had an in- crease of 2/- a week, which is upon the highest scale of out relief. Yours truly, Wm. Venables Williams. Jany 16, 1892. Dear Sir,—I read your letter to the Committee last Wednesday, who consider it does not give a satisfac- tory answer to the one they addressed to you on the 3rd of December. You will see, on reference to it, that they were aware Mary Hughes had received the additional 2/- after having applied for some weeks, but what the Committee are desirous to know is,-if she could have anything" in kind "? They also wish me to point out particularly to your notice, the last clause in the letter and would feel obliged if you would kindly bring their letter before the Board of Guardians at the next meeting. I am, yours truly, To the M. T. E. Wood, Secy. Rev W. Venables Williams. Board Room, Conway, 15th Febry, 1892. Madam,—I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 16th ultimo, addressed to the Revd. W. Venables-Williams, and to ask if you will kindly for- ward me a copy of such letter, as it has been unfor- tunately mislaid. I am, Madam, yours truly, To Mrs Wood, T. E. Parry, Clerk. Secretary Conway District Nurse Association. High Street, Conway, Feby. 22. Madam,—I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 22nd inst., which will be laid before the Guardians at their next ordinary meeting, and result communicated to you. Yours truly, T. E. Parry. Board Room, Conway Union, March 18, 1892. Madam,—I am directed by the Board of Guardians of this Union to acknowledge the receipt of your let- ter as to Mary Hnghes, &c, and to inform you that all cases coming before the notice of the Board are treated on their merits, and all recommendations made by the Medical Officer are duly considered, and orders given to the Relieving Officer in manner pro- vided by the orders of the Local Government Board. The Relieving Officer has also power to act upon the recommendation of the Medical Officer between Board meetings. I am, Madam, yours truly, To Mrs Wood, r. bl. Parry, Clerk. Secty. C. D. N. Association. A letter was read from Dr Prichard, who regret- ted he was unable to be present at the annual meeting, as it would have given him an opportun- ity of bearing testimony to the Nurse's usefulness in the locality. He added that by her untiring energy she had overcome the local prejudices against her vocation, and that she had been of valuable assistance to him in his profession. She had also ensured the comfort of the patients by her attention to the sanitary arrangements and cleanliness of the sick room. Mrs Mostyn then proposed that the Committee of ladies who had served for the last nine months should be re-elected, with the exception of Miss Ellis, who was leaving Conway. The following ladies formed the Committee :—Mrs Mostyn, Mrs Rees, Mrs Swinford Wood, Mrs Walter Bibby Wood, Mrs Hartley, Mrs Fincham, Mrs Hum- phrey Lewis, Mrs David Owen, Miss Walmesley, Miss Jones, Miss Scott, Miss Evans, and Miss Darby. This was seconded by Mrs Lee, and carried. Mrs Houlgrave and Miss Dutton were also added to the Committee. The usual vote ot thanks to the Chairman was then passed. CONWAY ANDLLANDUDNO OOUNry COURT. Co SWAY, THURSDAY, APRIL -21ST, I.S92.Before His Honor Sir Horatio Lloyd. TIIE BUCKLEY OUSEY TRUST FUND. Mr James Porter made an application in the matter of a trust fund for the benefit of the children of the late Mr Buckley Ousey, R.C.A., of which fund, amounting to £ 168, the Mayor of Conway (Councillor Albert Wood) Mr Humphrey Lewis; Mr T. B. Farrington, C.E.; and Mr Hugh Owen, C.O., were trustees. These gentlemen had undertaken the trust on the express condition that they should be allowed to pay the money into the County Court, it order that it might at once be distributed under His Honors direction. The money had been paid into the Post Office Savings Bank, and the petitioners now asked that the money should be applied on behalf of the infant children, and to have a guardian, Miss Walmsley, of Penmaenmawr, appointed. This lady had, in fact, acted as guardian, from the death of the parents. Mr Porter put in an affidavit of fitness.—The application was granted, as was also Mr Porter's further application, on the guardian's behalf, for an order for the immediate repayment of £21 expenses already incurred and for the payment, until further order, of a quarterly allowance of £ 12 10s.
AN UNOPPOSED TITHE APPLICATION. Mr H. Roberts, of St Asaph, tithe agent for ti-ie "tev Bankes- Price. B.D., Rector of Llangelynin, applied in a tithe c"se in which Henry Roberts, Stanley House, Penmaenmawr, the respondent, had not given the necessary five days; notice of opposition, nor now appeared.—Mr House Roberts application, which was for the appointment of a receiver, was granted, the High Bailiff (Mr William Roberts, LI wyd- an), being appointed.
THE MILITARY FUNERAL OF THE LATE MR JAMES JONES. The interment, with military honors, of the remains of the late Mr James Jones, player of the second cornet in the Band of the 4 Company 2nd V. B. Royal Welsh Fusiliers, and youngest son of Mr Robert Jones (joiner), Chapel Street, Conway, took place at the Conway Cemetery, on Saturday, April 16th, the Rev David Williams, Calvinistic Methodist minister, Conway, officiating through- out, and there being also present by the graveside two C. M. deacons, Supt H. D. Williams and Mr William Hughes. The funeral was a large one, and amongst those present, besides the Volun- teers (who marched, with arms reversed and with crape-muffled drum, to the sad strains of the Dead March in Saul), were the local Lodge of Oddfellows' funeral deputation, wearing the funeral sash of the Order. The chief mourners were Mr Robert Jones, father Mr Robert Jones, brother Mr John Jones, brother, who also acted as undertaker Miss E. A. Jones, Mrs Catherine M. Williams, Mrs Margaret Edwards, and Mrs Rebecca Jones, sisters. Thf coffin, of solid oak with solid brass mountings bore an engraved name-plate inscribed JAMES JONES, Died April nth, 1892, Aged 22. At the graveside the Volunteers' firing-party, at Color-Sergeant Alfred Williams' command, fired three volleys over their deceased comrades' resting-place. The Volunteers afterwards marched back to Conway, under the command of Sergeant- Instructor Keigwin. After the funeral, there was placed on the grave a beautiful wreath (in which laurel-leaves and forgei-me-nots were predominant), bearing the inscription Love's token, M.J." LIBERALISM IN THE CARNARVON BOROUGHS. MR LLOYD GEORGE, M.P. AT CONWAY. Mr Lloyd George, M.P., on Easter Tuesday night addressed a meeting at the Market Hall, Conway. Mr Thomas Jones (Berthllwyd and Liverpool), presided, and was supported by Mr William Woodall, M.P. for Hanley, Mr Henry Woodall, C.E., Aldermen Griffith Jones and John Williams, Councillor Hugh Hughes, Mr Thomas Hughes, B.A., Cantab., the Rev George E. Catlin (English Congregationalist), Llandudno Rev W. Evans (Welsh Wesleyan), Llandudno Rev Evan Jones (Welsh Wesleyan), Conway and the Rev David Williams (Calvinistic Methodist), Conway). The Chairman, in his opening address, said that they were met to return Mr Lloyd George their sincerest thanks for his services to the Liberal cause in general, and more particularly to Wales and that constituency he had the honor of repre- senting. Every Imperial question had had the attention of the member for the Carnarvon Boroughs,—from the proposed survey of the Mombasa Railway—(hear, hear, and laughter)—in South Africa to the Royal Commission on Railways in England. With each and all of these Imperial questions, Mr Lloyd George had proved himself able to grapple, and that on the broad principle of Imperial legislation (hear, hear), One thing they could console themselves with was that the day of dissolution was at hand (applause). Lord Salis- bury's Unionist Government would soon be one of the things of the past, and the country would be hailing back with joy Mr Gladstone-(cheers)-to complete the work he had set his heart upon. But Mr Gladstone must have young men to help him- men 01 action not those who sought safe and comfortable seats, and who might think they were good enough even for Wales (hear, hear, and laughter). There were some false prophets who went about saying that Mr Lloyd George would not be returned (No, no). Well, if he was not, it would be a lasting disgrace to the constituency he now so ably represented (hear, hear). No question of mere amiability or geniality should guide a constituency in selecting a representative,—it was

Colwyn Bay After a Snowy Easter. Although the April weather of 1892 has been very unseasonable, Colwyn Bay maintains its attrac- tiveness as a health-resort all through everything. The blossoms found in the Colwyn gardens tell a tale of the place's mildness, the gardens of Sea View Terrace, for instance, which are within three minutes walk of the railway station. But, as undoubtedly Colwyn Bay's shelteredness by the surrounding hills is the reason of its pre- eminent mildness, it struck us that a ramble- around the base of Bryn Euryn (" the hill of sloes"), which is the maintain warding off the I west wind, would be productive of instructive in- formation. Accordingly, 0% a very few days after the snowy Easter Moiftlay, a day whose unusal unpleasantness will long be remembered at Colwyn Bay, we rambled towards Bryn Euryn,and. in act of passing along, were so iniM attracted by the wealth of bloom in the garden arnund Mr Ellis Lever's castellated mansion, Tan-y-Bryn (" unde' the hill "), that we asked permission (cheerfulb, accorded us) to inspect the garden and to tak a list of the flowers in blossom in the open air. Before we did so, however, Mr Lever kindl detailed his gardener to show us the greenhouses where there are many plants deserving of mention Lack of space compels passing mention of only few of these:-A fine specimen (not in bloom) c the white-blossomed square-angle-stemmed pa sion-flower (Passifiora quadrangularia) Habrt thamnus, Elegans, begonias, ivy-leaved geranium Diplieus glupenosa (a very handsome specimen i full bloom), and a fine Plumbago (not yet i blossom). The house (which, as may be seen ill another column, is to be let) occupieJ what-for scenery, healthfulness, and shelteredness combined,—is certainly to say the least, an unsur- passable site in the neighbourhood, and is as well-pointed and built at the back as at the front, being built for the owner's own occupation. The house we understood, was furnished with every regard for comfort, possessing even electric bells, and in fact, everything except the electric light. The outlook is grand, extending along the coast to the Vale of Clwyd, Rhyl, Meiiden "Fish" (plainly visible), and the Point of Ayr. The gar- dens, it appears, were tastefully designed, accor- ding to Mr Lever's wishes, on the American plan, that is, with no high wall to shut out the view of casual passers, but thoroughly open to the sight of every person walking along the road, the de- signer being Mr Bruce Findlay, of the Royal Botanical Gardens, Old Trafford, Manchester. Here was to be seen two species of Pampass grass—one called "the hare-tail," and another sort. The plants in bloom in the open air (and remember it wa's April, and at Tan-y-Bryn. Col- wyn Bay not the Riviera) were as follow honesty (a cruciferous plant with handsome purplish pink blossoms), sweet-william, Vio- las, narcissus, daffodils, jonquils, a yellow crown-imperial lily, hyacinths, tulips, primroses, auriculas, cowslips, oxlips, polyanthuses, peri- winkles, wall-flowers (several varieties, including the best Sutton's Cloth of Gold"), purple heather (this has been in bloom all through last winter), lesser celandine, stitchwort (this, as the last- named, is technically a weed, but, we were told, Mr Lever won't have the weeds done away with, when they have handsome flowers), white arabis, purple abricia, double-flowered gorse, laurestinus, deronica, white daphne, aucuba (both in blossom and in berry), red valerianic scented violets; blue Scillas, Virginia stocks, Brompton stocks, bar- berry, ditto (another species), forget-me-not, Silene compacta, red flowering currant-ribes, marigold, white cerastium. Altogether, thirty- eight distinct species, to which we may add four fruit-trees mentioned below, a very good showing for April, especially after a snowy Easter Monday only a very few days previous. Against the garden's north wall (with, therefore, a southerly exposure, were in full bloom apple trees, Magnum Bonum plum trees, cherry trees, and jargonelle pear trees. On leaving Tan-y-Bryn we ascended Bryn Euryn, the summit of which is barely ten minutes walk. At the top there was a beautifully bracing breeze, but with one minutes' walk downwards we were able to get completely into shelter again, where it was a complete calm. The view from the top was a magnificent panorama of the sur- rounding land and sea, and included the beacon- towered ancient Llandrillo Church, founded by Ednyfed Vychan, in the thirteenth century the ruins of Llys Bryn Euryn (close to Tan-y-Bryn), the residence of the said Ednyfed Dinarth Farm, (where Ednyfed's court-of-arms is sculptured) the Afon Ganol, formerly navigated by vessels bringing coal the Little Ormeshead, often called Rhiwieden; the Druidical Gorsedd mound on the Great Ormeshead Gloddaeth, the mansion where H.R.H. the Princess May of Teck will in all pro, bability be a guest during part of next summer the ancient Llangwstenyn Church; the Carnar- vonshire mountains, snow-crowned the River Conway; the Vale of Mochdre (" pig's resting place)," noted for its tithe riot; the Denbighshire moors; the Pwllycrochon Hotel, where in the autumn of 1890 the Right Hon. John Morley, M.P., was a guest; Colwyn Bay; Old Colwyn Llysfaen hill and Penmaenrhos tunnel and so along the coast to the Flintshire hills; the Point of Air and the mouth of the river Dee. Then, a capital view is obtained from Rhos, the rising little town where the Colwyn Bay Pier is to be constructed, and this part will speedily develop, freehold sites being on the market the Llandrillo Fishing Weir and so our eyes again rest on the ancient Church of which the worthy Vicar of Colwyn Bay is the incumbent. At length we descend, and walk back to the Colwyn Bay railway-station, a matter of perhaps half-an-hour or forty minutes. Many a traveller on the North- Western might go further this abnormally severe spring, and fare much worse than we did at too-little known health-resort, sheltered Colwyn Bay.

The Recent Fatal Accident at the New Welsh Slate Quarries, Blaenau Festiniog. Some few weeks ago two quarry-men employed in the New Welsh Slate Company's quarry at Blaenau Festiniog-, were killed by the fall of stones under circumstances which have been fully re- ported in the newspapers. After the inquest, Dr Le Neve-Foster, Government Inspector of Mines, at the instance of the Home Office, instituted proceedings against the Company, their Head- manager, Mr Robert Owen, and their sub- manager, Mr Humphrey Roberts, charging them respectively with not having properly secured the working-places of the quarry in accordance with the special rules in force in the quarry, under the Metalliferous Mines Acts. The case was the subject of great public interest in the district of festiniog, as the charge if proved would involve very serious consequences with regard to the management of all the quarries in the neighbour- hood. Notices had also been given on behalf of the deceased men's relatives, claiming compensa- tion under the Employer's Liability Acts, and a conviction in the present case would have proved of the greatest importance to the deceased men's relatives, in pursuit of their claim. The case lasted from half-past eleven in the morning, to half-past six in the evening, and eventually all the charges were dismissed. Mr Mostyn Roberts, of Carnarvon, appeared for the prosecution, and Mr Griffith Humphreys (Messrs Wm. Jones and Porter, Colwyn Bay and Conwy), appeared for all the defendants. Mr William George, of the firm of Messrs Lloyd George and George, Cnc- cieth, watched the proceedings on behalf of the relatives of the deceased, and Mr G. Payne, of the firm of Messrs Payne, Galloway, and Payne, Manchester, watched the case on behalf of the Insurance Company.

Mr William Petch and Mr Alfred petch, both of Conway. The deceased, who succumbed—after only a week's illness,—to syncope following bron- chitis, was apprenticed some five-and-twenty years ag-o to Messrs Maurice Owen and Son, cabinet-makers and joiners, Plas Mawr, Conway. Subsequently he was employed, by that firm and others, as a joiner, in which capacity he worked upon the transformation of the house-property then known as The College," Conway, into a portion of Stanley Building's. His last job in North Wales is said to have been jcinery, under a Lianrwst contractor, on the then new Llandudno railway station, demolished within the last few months. Then he proceeded to Cockermouth, where he prospered, and at his decease he was bandmaster of the Volunteer and Mechanics' Bands, and was the winner of several prizes for playing cornet solos, including first honors at the Crystal Palace, London. He was a self-taught player. At Cockermouth he married Miss Cass, of that town, and she-as well as their five sons, survives to mourn his loss. The funeral, a very large one, started from Greyhound Inn, Cocker- mouth, at two o'clock on Easter Tuesday after- noon arriving at Brigham at three o'clock. The Volunteer and Mechanic's Bands (massed for the occasion) played in passing through Cockermouth the Dead March Saul, which they also played in Brigham Church. The Vicar of Brigham offi- ciated throughout. Among the mourners were many relatives of the family, including the de- ceased's two brothers Messrs Willam and Alfred Petch, Conway. OPENING OF THE PENSARN (LLANDUDNO JUNC- TION) -NEW CHURCH.—On Wednesday afternoon, April 20th, the Right Rev the Lord Bishop of St Asaph took part in the opening service of a new School-Church at Pensarn, Llangwstenin. The Church, which has been built to meet the wants of the parishioners at the Llandudno Junction end of t'le long and straggling Parish is designed to accomodate a hundred children, and complies with the Education Departmental requirements. It consists of one large room, with a class-room at the south-east end, divided from the main school- room by a glazed partition, and this room thus can be opened for Divine service, and acts as a tran- sept. At the east end is a small chancel, which can be shut off from the main room by a large moveable partition. The Church was crowded to the doors as the Bishop, with several of the diocesan clergy, including the Ven. Archdeacon Williams. St Asaph the Revs W. Venables- Williams, Colwyn Bay; W. Morgan, Glan Conway; John Morgan, Llandudno; F. G. Jones, Llanrhos and William Davies, Rector of Llangwstenin, passed up the main aisle, and the service was at once proceeded with. The Rector conducted the service, the first and second Lessons being read by the Rev W. Venables-Williams and the Ven. Archdeacon Williams respectively. The Bishop, who preached the opening sermon, ap- pealed to those present to contribute liberally to the building fund of the School Church. He said that that large and straggling Parish revealed one 0" the many difficulties the Church in Wales had i i providing for the spiritual needs of their hamlets. A Welsh service, conducted by the Rev T. E. Davies, Vicar of Pwllheli, was held at night. THE WELSH WESLEYANS' MUSICAL SUCCESS.— On Easter Monday evening, a very successful grand concert was held, in the Conway Market Hall, under Welsh Wesleyan auspices. The proceedings opened with an address by the chairman (Alderman Griffith Jones), and Miss E. E. Bartley accompanied throughout.

a matter of principle (hear, hear). Wales wanted men like Mr Lloyd George, who lost no opportun- ity of standing up in the House of Commons and asserting the rights of his countrymen, and he felt confident that at the coming election the Carnar- von Boroughs would be found still loyal to those Liberal principles which had placed Mr Lloyd George at the head of the poll, when the constitu- ency was wrested from that Tory thraldom into which it had temporarily relapsed (cheers). Mr D. Lloyd George, M.P., referring to the Conway mussel fisheries question, said that Sir John Puleston, with characteristic modesty, had appropriated the whole credit for the shortening of the close-time. But-in fact,—he (Mr George) had effectually moved in the matter. When I received, continued Mr George, a complaint fron Conway concerning this particular question, I without delay—corresponded with the Board of Trade had their permission to attend at one of their meetings and set before them the grievances of the Conway fishermen ;an d in a few days had the reply that the Board of Trade would settle the question satisfactorily for the fishermen (applause). That was two months before Sir John Puleston was put in motion (hear, hear). Further, in the capacity of a member of the Carnarvonshire County Council, where I sit as an Alderman (laughter). I asked a question concerning the Conway fisheries. The next thing, I heard, was that it was in the hand of Sir John Puleston,— when I had already-two months previous—been in correspondence with the Board of Trade and then of course, Sir John had done all when he had really done nothing but visit the Board of Trade to receive the answer that I had laboured for. Someone naturally asks me why did I not publish my account of the case. I shall tell you, —I do not rush off to inspire in the papers para- graphs telling my exploits in the matter (laughter). Continuing, Mr George said he did not wish to re- present the Boroughs because of mussel-fishery successes. He protested against Sir John Pule- ston's conduct in goin behind the representative's back. As long as he (Mr George) was the repre- sentative of the Boroughs he was bound to put every local grievance before the Government, and moreover, said Mr George, every local grievance is expected by the Government to come through me as the representative. Now, did I ever neglect my duty ? (Voices No "). Did I ever refuse to do anything I could possibly do for the welfare of my constituency ? (Voices No "). If I had neglected or refused to perform my duties, the constituents had a right to call an outsider to do them, but as I've done my duties as the representative, I emphatically say that no gentleman would have interfered with my duties. To say the least of it, it was a gross breach of the ordinary etiquette which ought to govern the action of gentlemen. Take, for instance, the case of a clerk to the Justices (loud laughter). If an unlicensed practitioner so far ignored etiquette as to prepare summonses, and if some magistrate could be got to sign those summonses, would not the Magistrates' Clerk be offended, and perhaps prosecute the unlicensed practitioner? (Laughter). When the Fisheries of Wales came before Parliament, where was Sir John then ? (A Voice: "In Mombassa," and laughter). Where-ever he was, he wasn't present to help Wales. When the Railway rates came under notice, in which the young Welsh M.Ps have taken a prominent part, where was Sir John then to protect Wales and Welshmen ? (A Voice In Mombassa," and laughter). When we so in- defatiguably endeavored to have the Royalties on Quarries investigated, we succeeded,—(applause) —but it was reported in the newspapers that Sir John had done all, whilst he had done nothing,— he wasn't there. Where was Sir John to watch the welfare of Wales ? (A Voice In Mombas- sa," and laughter), continuing Mr George said that Sir John Puleston's claims as to the influence he possessed was creditable to the Ministry he supported (hear, hear). Why, if they were to be- lieve Sir John Puleston, Lord Salisbury, Mr Bal- four, and others were only so many marionettes to be pulled and made to dance as Sir John Puleston liked. (Laughter). Such claims recalled to mind the old couplet about an old-time hero :— We never won a battle,— 'Twas Owen won them all." And those who heeded all that was claimed on Sir John Puleston's behalf, would soon be saying We never won a session,- 'Twas Puleston won them all." —(Renewed laughter). In conclusion Mr George, after stating that every elector is a trustee for his country, said that now the democracy- the people, were on the throne, and the aristocracy were suppliant to them. He (Mr George) impressed on the Conway electors, that the Mussel Fishery, important as it was, was but naught to the national wants of the country and nation and, as Ireland now gets all because it made its national wants it chief aim, so Wales must also follow, and what- ever is of benefit to a nation, benefits every class of the nation,—and every individual in every class.—(Loud and prolonged applause). Mr William Woodall, M.P. for Hanley, who then addressed the meeting, after stating that he was sorry that he was unable to address them in their grand historic native tongue, said that there was no one in the hall, who did not feel that the interest was fast shifting from the House of Commons to the constituencies. He was express- ing not his own personal opinion but the opinion also of his colleagues on the Front Opposition Bench, when he included Mr Lloyd George's name in a trio of young Welsh members possessing aptness to learn parliamentary forms, interest in looking after the affairs of the welfare of the Empire, and zeal and earnestness in advocating the claims of Wales. With reference to land questions, Mr Woodall said that the reason the present Government opposed compulsion in ac- quiring land for small holdings, was-to some extent, but not wholly—the landlord's aversion to that principle, but it was-largely-the recogni- tion of the fact that—while ostensibly legislating for England and Wales,—the Government knew that they were in honor bound to apply the same principle to Irish questions. And the electors would find their interests continually compromised, sacrificed, and overshadowed by this Irish diffi- culty. In every conceivable way this plan of governing a people as we thought best, and not as they wished, was a most utter piece of folly. They should send to Parliament men to stand by the Grand Old Man, loyally and truly, in his fight. He (the speaker) individually apprehended that, unless he were very much mistaken, when Home Rule was thrown out, Mr Gladstone would not forthwith appeal to the country, but would send up to the House of Lords, measure after measure, those other measures which his supporters were elected to promote. Then at length, when these many measures had been rejected, they would appeal to the country against the House of Lords (applause). Replying to questions from the audience, Mr George stated that in all parts of Wales the best parts of many streams were preserved for the use use of private gentlemen, many of whom never by the remotest chance went out with rod and line themselves, but prevented others from doing so. He regarded that as a monstrous injustice, and he was in favor of throwing those streams open to the use of the public, for whose use they were de- signed by Providence (hear, hear). And, more than that, they intended to introduce a bill having that purpose in view, and then it would be seen whether the Tories or the Liberals were the true friends of the people (loud applause). On the motion of Alderman Captain Griffith Jones, the following resolution was carried unani- mously, amidst great enthusiasm That we, Parliamentary electors in the borough of Conway, desire to express our entire and continued confi- dence in our representative, Mr D. Lloyd George, and to record our deep appreciation of his services on behalf of Wales in Parliament. And, further, we pledge ourselves to make every legitimate effort, when the occasion arises, to secure his triumphant return." A vote of thanks to the Chairman terminated the proceedings.
