RHYL POLICE COURT. TUESDAY. — Before Dr W T Girdlestone (in the cfiair), Dr A Eyton Lloyd, Mr R C Enyon, and Mr J H Ellis. Robbery by a Woman Decoyed to 11 Nice Respectable Lodgings." Elizabeth Gill, an unfortunate, was brought up in custody charged with robbery from the person on the previous night. George Williams, labourer, Tynffordd, Bodel- wyddan, said that on the previous evening he met the prisoner at about 9-30 in a public house. After leaving the place she followed him, and he said he had lost the train. She told him that he could get nice respectable lodgings with her. After having a drink together, he went to her lodgings over Vale-road bridge. He went to bed after the prisoner had showed him his room. Shortly after- wards he looked for his money, having had 15s in his purse when he last saw it. He found that his purse and the 15s were gone. He dressed himself as quickly as he conld and went to look'for the prisoner. He told the landlady of the house that lie would give the prisoner into custody. The landlady begged of him not to do so. He went up to town and gave information to the police, P.C. Hughes, who returned to the house with him. After 11-15 the prisoner came home in company with another man. She was drnnk, and at first denied having stolen the purse, but 4a was found on her as well as the purse. P.C. J Hughes said that he went to the prison- er's lodgings in Victoria-road, at about 11 o'clock. He first asked Alice Jones, the landlady, about the prisoner. While engaged talking to Alice Jones the prisoner entered the house in a drunken condition. She admitted knowing George Wil- liams, and the prosecutor identified the prisoner as the women he suspected of having robbed him. Witness asked the prisoner how much money she had in her possession, but she declined to say. She then "throw away a half-crown, and a bottle containing liquor. She had also 4s 4d in:her hand. He asked the prisoner what she had done with a half-sovereign. She grinned in George Williams' face, and observed that he had not got it. She afterwards turned her pocket out, but shhad nothing in it. He took her to the police station and charged her with the theft. She did not reply to the charge. The prisoner was then formally charged with the theft, and said that she was guilty of receiving the purse and money, but not of stealing it. The prisoner, who had been previously convicted of larceny, was new sent to jail for three months with hard labour. Drunk and Disorderly. Abraham Niele, hairdresser, Constitution Hill, Birmingham, was brought up in custody charged with being drunk and disorderly on the previous day. P.S. Mac Walter said that he was sent for on the previous day to remove the prisoner from a barber's "shop in Market Street. It was partially with force and much difficulty that the prisoner was ejected from the shop. Prisoner was drunk and disorderly, and had to be locked up. R J Hughes gave corroborative evidence, and said that the police sergeant did all he could to get the prisoner away quietly. The prisoner was not locked up until the police sergeant had tailed to get him away by persuasion. The prisoner said that he was not drunk but ex- cited. Mr Brookes, hairdresser, had fetched him from Birmingham on the previous Friday, and had agreed to pay his fare both ways, but declined to pay his return fare. He went to the shop to get the money, and was very excited. The Bench fined the prisoner 5s and 7s 2d costs. Old Offenders Severely Punished. William Williams, labourer, 46 Vale Road, and Robt Roberts, labourer, Llideardan bach, Bala, who. appeared fn Court with their heads enveloped in surgical bandages, were charged with night poach- ing on the 9th inst.—The defendants admitted the charge. Mr Bromley appeared to prosecute, and in laying the case before the Court said that the defendants had been guilty of a serious offence, and he felt that the gamekeeper who had captured them had acted the part of a hero. William Roberts, gamekeeper to Mr Frost, said that on Saturday night, at about 9 o'clock, he heard a shot fired in Rhydorddwy Goch covers. He went in the direction of the sound, when he heard a second shot. He afterwards saw the two prisoners coming over the fence from the wood. Roberts carried a stick, and Williams had a gun. He spoke to the prisoners, and Roberts then at- tempted to strike him with a stick, while Williams pointed the gun at him. He knocked Roberts down with his stick, and then jumped at Williams, felling him also. Roberts got up and made for witness, bnt he knocked him again. Both of the. prisoners went for him, and he had a lively time. I Williams promised to go to the police station, but he ran away. Afterwards witness sent a; keeper named Parry to look for the pheasants, and he found Roberts. Williams was afterwards arrested on a warrant. On the following morning he found a dead pheasant in the wood. The bird had been shot. The prisoners endeavoured to make out that it was the keeper who had attacked them the first. Williams admitted that he had a struggle, and said he cut his necktie in half to get away. •! Inspector Pearson proved a lengthy list of convic- tions against the prisoners. Roberts had previous- ly had imprisonment for wounding a keeper. Wil- liams had been fined for assaulting the police and night poaching. The Chairman said that the prisoners had been guilty of a serious offence. They would each be sent to jail for three months with hard labour, and have to find sureties to be of good behaviour for 12 months, themselves in 910 and two sureties of X5 each failing the finding of sureties to be further imprisoned for six months. Cruelty to Animals. John David Jones, labourer, Red Houses, Holy- well, was charged with cruelty to a horse on Nov- ember 21st. Evan Evans, labourer, Victoria road, said that on the evening of the I st llIt, he saw a fallen horse in charge of a man like the defendant. He could not swear to the defendant. Inspector Toyne, R.S.P.C.A. said that he saw the defendant in charge of a bay gelding in Mill Bank. He spoke to him, and finding that hejwas taking the horse to Holywell witness told him that the horse was not fit to travel, as it had broken knees and was discharging matter. Defendant said that he would take the animal, and that wit- ness could do what he liked. Witness cautioned the defendant against walking the horfe. On the 23rd ult he again saw the defendant and asked him why he took the horse away. Defendant replied that he drove a mule in a cart and led the horse behind. When he got to Pendyffryn road the horse dropped down, and as he could not get it up he had it dragged into a field close by. It was destroyed the following day. In reply to the Bench, the Inspector stated that the horse was old and unfit to travel. Defendant It was one of the best horses that ever travelled (laughter.) The Bench fined defendant 10s and 8s 6d costs. Michael Cuddy, Vale-road, was charged with cruelty to the horse above referred to by causing it to be worked. Mr R Rromley appeared for the defendant. Inspector Toyne said that he saw the horse in the defendant's stable, and on learning that de- fendant was about to send the animal away, he cautioned him that if he did send it on the road he would have to report the case. Defendant said he would please himself. He afterwards heard that the horse had gone. In cross-examination this witness said that de- fendant stated that the horse belonged to him but that it had had not formerly belonged to Mr Jones oil-merchant. Defendant asked what was the matter with the horse, but defendant did not say that he would shoot the animal if there was any. thing wrong with it. He had warned the defen- dant that the horse was not fit to travel with or without a collar. The horse was slaughtered on the following morning. James Berrie said he slaughtered the horse on the ihstructiona of the defendant, in a field near Rhyl. Mr Bromley contended that the case had not been proved against the defendant, who had sold the horse before the officer saw it. The defendant said he purchased the horse last March, but the Inspector alleged that he had recently bought it from a man named Jones. He asked the Inspector what was wrong with the horse, and he also offered to shoot it if was not fit to work. The Inspector declined to tell him what was the matter. He afterwards sold the horse to the defendant in the last case, and it was removed from his yard. When he heard that the horse was down he sent James Berrie to see if it was in pain, and to kill it if it was not fit to walk. By the Bench I knew that the horse was to be slaughtered, and so I told Berrie to see to it. Cross-examined by Inspector Toyne Although I had sold the horse I was prepared to get it destroyed on behalf of the owner. Defendant was fined 10s and 17s 6d costs. A Warning to Carriers. Henry Jones, car proprietor, Dyserth, was charged with causing cruelty to a horse on Nov. 25th. Mr Joseph Lloyd defended. Inspector Toyne, R.S.P.C.A., said that on Nov. 25th he saw the defendant's son in charge of a horse and [a heavy waggonette in High street, Rhyl. The horse seemed to be in a very exhausted condition and had evidently been over-worked. Defendant said that the horse had only been back and fore twice to Dyserth with passengers. The horse was in a very bad state. He had previously cautioned the defendant, and although he told him to put the horse in the stable he kent it standing about the yard for haif-an-hour. L- Cross-examined I told defendant to keep the horse in, but he drove it home that night with two passengers. It was a quarter to eleven o'clock on Saturday night. I complain that the horse had been over-driven. P.S. MacWalter gave corroborative evidence, and said that the horse appeared to be fagged. For the defence, Mr Joseph Lloyd denied that there had been any cruelty, and alleged that the defendant had driven the horse in easy journeys to and from Dyserth. The Chairman said that the Bench did not consider that the defendant had been guilty of cruelty, but they warned the drivers from Dyserth that if there was any case of over-loading or over-driving brought before them and proved they would deal severely with the offenders. The case would be dismissed. Drunk and Disorderly. John Evans, Vale road, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly on Nov. 20th. P.C. Tale said that the defendant was drunk and disorderly in Queen street. He refused to go away and on springing at the witness's throat ho locked him up. Defendant was fined 5s and 7s 6d costs. John Hughes, labourer, Vale road, was charged with a like offence on Nov. 25th. P.C. Roberts said that the defendant and his brother were quarrelling h Ernest street. He was drunk, and it was with difficulty that the defen- dant was pursuaded to go away. Defendant denied that he was drunk, and said that he had only had a few words with his brother. Fined 2s 6d and 8s costs. Joseph Hughes, brother of the last defendant, was fined 5s and 8s costs for a like offence. It was stated that the defendant had been called up for the Militia, but having hurt his foot while drnnk he had to return home. "A Little Fresh." Christopher Adamson and Joseph Smith, labourers, West street, weie each fined 28 6d and costs for being drunk in Bodfor street. Defend- ants said they were a little fresh. Non-attendance at School. Edward Jones, Warren road, was fined 3s and 3s costs for neglecting to send his child to school Mr Parry, School Attendance Officer, proved the case.

En Route! Forward, march on It is the King's command, Along life's highway march with steadfast tread, Past pleasant fountains and sweet meadow-land, Past cypressed cities of the quiet dead, On, on, the seried ranks more closely press Up the steep hillside at the close of day, Some step aside outworn in mute distress, .Some at an inn for a brief resting stay. Some climb the heights of Fame, but still the cry Forward, march forward! rings out loud and clear, Some lay their laurels down to fade and die, And join the march borne on triumphal bier, Some in the white and pleasant Camp of Life Remain to fight the battle of the morn, Some.seek,the rest the green, still churchyard gives, By sore defeats and trials over-borne. Yet still that army of all human souls Gathers recruits from every passing town, Comrades who follow to their longed-for goals, The flaunting standard till Death mows them down. And when the General calls the mighty roll," "T.Adsum the joyous answer of the few, But ere the death-bell ends its solemn knole, The regiment forms and presses on anew. March forward Time no pause or respite knows, Each day takes one day from the journey's length Sufficient for that day each one receives, As the day is, so also is their strength. Welcome, oh tent of sweet, green humble grass, J^That waits for me when marching orders cease c When I my answer to the call shall pass, --Adaum, let now thy servant go in peace. MARIANNE LESTER
THE BENEFITS OF SCIENCE. j It is seldom that any discovery of science is such as will benefit all classes of people. Some of the greatest discoveries of the age, while they have proved directly beneficial to thousands, have also, at least for a time, injured other thousands. IEv-n some of the best medicinal preparations, however much they may do to remove one cl1:8s of disease, or suit some constitutions, at the same time either deepen the hold of another disease, or leave it entirely untouched, or if they benefit one class of patients, they may injure another. Now the great need of the age is some scientifically arrauged preparation which will cope effectually with the prevalent diseases of this country, which will be certain to do good when fairly tried, which will be equally adapted to the needs of the mer- chant and the workman, the professional man and he who wins his bread by the sweat of his brow, the student, the clerk, the factory haud, the miner, and the roadside labourer, It should be, too, such a preparation as contains no injurious ingredients, and which may be taken with impu- nity by the weakly child, or the delicate lady, as well as by the stronger constituted man. Such a discovery would deserve to be called The Perfec- tion of Medicinal Preparations, and would indeed be an Invaluable Boon to Suffering- Humanity. Now this much needed boon has been found, has been tried, has been proved, and wherpver proved it has been fonnd satisfactory. We refer to Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters, The Vegetable Tonic, which when once tried, has been always recommended, and has proved successful when all other nudicing has failed to give relief, and we may say further, that it has proved permanently beneficial, when other preparations at best only gav., temporarv relief. It is strongly recommended as The Best Remedy of the Age for Indigestion, in i's different forms, such as Sick Headache, Pains in the Side, Giddiness, Loss of Annetite, iilso for Nervousness and Nervius Disorders, Sleeplessness, Neuralgia, Low Spirits, and all kinds of Weakness. It has often proved very beneficial to persons suffering from great Weak- ness, either after an iHness, long confinemeot to ill-ventilatsd rooms, or any other cause. It strikes at the source of the Disease, removing the cause of the illness, and strengthens those par's of the system which have b?en weakened by it, and therefore most liable to colds and other ail- ments. Gvvilym Evans' Quinine Bitters being purely vegetable, it is a Natural Tonic, and suited to all ages at all seasons of the year. It is every- where acknowledged to be a powerful aid in restoring the body to a healthy state when deran- ged by disease. If you suspect that your health is beginning to fail, brace up your nerves, and fortify your constitution by taking now a course of this excellent Tonic, which is sold everywhere in bottles at 28 9d and 4s 6d each, but should any difficulty be experienced in procuring it, the Pro- prietors will forward same for the above prices- carriage fretJ.

Speaking at St. Asaph on Thursday night, Mr. Herbert Lewis, M.P., referred to the agitation for the reduction of the representation of Ireland in Parliament, and for redistributing the English and Welsh constituencies. This was, he said, a vital question for the Flint Boroughs it involved the very existence of the constituency. Both the Nat- ional Union of Conservative Associations and the Liberal Unionist Federation, which represented the Unionist political associations throughout the coun- try,had within the last few days passed resolutions in favour of redistribution. They had done the same thing last year, and it was quite evident that both wings of the Unionist party were determined to wipe a certain number of constituencies out of existence and to create fresh ones elswhere. Mr Chamberlain's organ, the" Birmingham Daily Post," had been vigorously prosecuting the agita- tion for some time past, and Mr Chamberlain generally got his own way in matters of this kind. There were apparently some who thought it would be possible to reduce the representation of Ireland without redistributing constituenccs in England and Wales, but. nobody could for a moment defend the justice of dealing with Ireland separately, and the question must be dealt with as a whole or not at all. The effect of redistribution wculd be that Flintshire would lose one of its two representatives in the House of Commons. Its net effect in Wales would be to reduce the representation of the Principality in the Imperial Parliament. The reason why Wales was able to command so small a share of the time and attention of the House of wommons was that their country only commanded 34 votes in the House, Any reduction of that small number would be a serious matter for Wales.

fees. He had every confidence in the officials, who were doing their best to stop the waste. Dr Prichard considered that the Council should discuss the question in Committee and not in public. Mr Frimston said that things had altered very much since he first supported the tower. In reply to questions, Mr Hall said that the tower would hold about 75,000 gallons. Mr Tilby It takes 25,000 per hour for Rhyl, and if you divide 75 by 25 you have the best answer possible as to how long the tank will supply Rhyl. Mr Frimston asked Mr Hall if he was pre- pared to say definitely that the water tower was an absolute necessity. Mr Hall I never said so. I have given the Council written reports on the matter. You can refer to them. I do not say that it is absolutely necessary, but I say that it is desirable from an engineering point of view. You can please yourselves whether you go in for the tower or not. The Council then divided, when Mr Berrie's motion was carried by 10 to 3. Mr Ellis then moved to defer applying to the Local Government Board until the Council were ready to apply for the new reservoir loan Dr. Girdlestone seconded. Mr P Mostyn Williams supported Mr Ellis, pointing out that the Council had already used the money for another purpose. The treasurer's balance on the debit side of water was £ 3876. Where had that money come from except from the water iower loan, and they had to realise that they had been paying money out of really borrowed capital, to carry on the water con- cern. He considered that it would be wise to defer the appropriation of the money until they applied for the loan for the new reservoir. Mr Berrie said it would be about two years before they would be able to ask the Local Government Board to sanction the reservoir loan, and he did not think that it would be wise to pay interest on the water tower capital until that time. Mr Mostyn Williams pointed out that if they did not decide to apply this money to other purposes they would have to raise about Y,4000 out of the rates. Mr J W Jones considered that they had better face the difficulty at once. Mr Ellis' motion, on being put to the meet- ing, was defeated by 12 votes to 4. Captain Keatinge said the ratepayers would have to consider something more seriously than the Councillors appear to do. A few I Hear, hears appeared to carry everything at the meeting (laughter). They did not appear to realise that they had not one penny of the £ 3,000. Mr J W Jones It will have to be made good. Mr Tilby Where did you propose to get the money to build the tower ? The matter then dropped, the original motion to apply to the Local Government Board for powers to apply the water tower loan to other purposes having been carried. Proposed Purchase of a New Steam Fire Engine. The Water Committee, after having heard reports from a deputation who had visited Sale and Manchester, recommended that the Council apply for a loan of £ 500 to purchase a new fire engine and escape, and to provide a new fire engine station. In reply to questions, Mr Hall stated that the deputation had inspected engines by the three principal makers, ;and all were satisfac- tory. All things considered, the Committee were of the opinion that Shand, Mason, & Co's tender was the best. He had made enquiries and found that several towns which obtained Shand, Mason & Co's engines had given repeat orders. It was intended to get a steam fire engine and a horse-drawn escape. The old fish market and cellars could be converted into a fire station. Water Report. The quantity of water used during November was reported to be as follows :-Rhyl and Rhuddlan 6,978,000 gallons; Abergele, Pen- sarn, Towyn, and St George, 1,201,000 St Asaph and Trefnant, 1,126,000 delivered, 9,305,000 corresponding month. 9,107,000 decrease, 198,000. The Reservoir on 30th Nov., 1899, was full, The Electric Light and Dust Destructor Scheme The report of the Electric Light Committee was as follows The revised estimate of the Engineers for Electric Light was read and discussed. The total amounts to X18,843,-btit some items, amounting to 14,760, might be delayed for about two years, reducing the amount to £ 13,583. The result of the canvass of the town is that about 1,100 lights would be taken a, the start. The Committee recommend that application be made to the Local Government Board for sanction to loan as follows :—Plant, £ 13,583 Engineer's commission legal expenses and contingencies, 1417; land, £ 250— £ 15,250, Refuse Destructor, 1:4,500 land, £ 250— £ 4,750. Total of both loans, 1:20,000.11 It was also recommended that Messrs Trentham and Peers be engaged to prepare the necessary plans and jocuments for the inquiry. The Committee also reported that in consequence of the Rhyl and Prcstatyn Light Railway Com- pany having offered to take current from the Council at ld per unit the Town Clerk had been requested to ask the Company to name a minimum sum per annum they would be prepared to pay the Council. Mr Mostyn Williams moved the adoption of the report, and in doing so said that it was considered the most efficient way to combine a dust destructor with electric light works. If they did not go in for electricity, but make the dust destructor stand by itself it would mean that they would have to pay £1,000 to £ 1500 above the original estimate for a dust destructor building, and it would cost 3d to 4d in the £ per annum to work the destructor. By combining the electric light scheme with the dust destructor they could make a profit out of the whole concern. Although the canvass of the town only showed that 1100 lights would be taken at first, he thought that they could venture to hope that there would be a substantial increase afttr the first year. Llandudno had started with 1000 lights, and now 12,000 were being used. He calculated that at least 2500 lights would be used in Rhyl. Reckoning each light at 32 units they would have a call for 80,000 units, and 36 arc lamps would take another 30,000, making a total of 110,000 units. It was calculated that they generated electricity at 2d per unit, and the charge on 915,250 would be about 5 per cent. 2 They would have to find about £ 2000 per annum, and in return the 80,000 units at 6il per unit would produce X2000 and the arc lamps X540, so that they would have a margin of X540. He believed that they would have a good profit, and that they would be either able to reduce the price of electrical current or else apply the surplus to the relief of the rates. In other towns companies had supplied fittings on the hire purchase system as well as for cash, and no doubt there would be no difficulty for Rhyl people to be provided for in the same way. It was the usual thing to ask the tramway companies to name a minimum sum per annnm if a local authority provided them with current. No doubt electricity was the illuminant of the future, and it was found to be more healthy and clean. It was not anticipated that there would be a decrease in the consumption of gas, as in every town where the electric light had been introduced there had been an increase in the consumption. The Council had to realise that if they did not go in for the electric light they would have to enlarge a gasworks which was admittedly a nuisance and hid been erected in the wrong place. Mr Ellis seconded the adoption of the report, and said that lie would be prepared to lose a little for a few years in order to keep Rhyl ahead of other watering places. Electricity was bound to como some day. Capt Kcatinge said he had not opposed the in- troduction of the electric light, although he had voted against the Committee's proposals in the past. He wanted to have the thing thoroughly considered. Having gone into the matter he was convinced that the Committee had a scheme which was practical, and he had pleasure in supporting the proposal. Dr Girdlestone urged the Council not to delay the dust destructor. Mr Maltby said that Rhyl had to look ahead, and it was better to spend a little money on the electric light than to lag behind in the race for popularity. Mr Whitley said he could not place any re- liance on the estimates placed before the Council, as they were always exceeded. He would vote for the scheme if he could bring his mind to believe that the estimates would be adhered to. What would happen if the Council were asked to extend the mains ? Mr J W Jones More expenditure means more income. J Dr Prichard while believing that it was essential that they should have a dust destructor, believed that the electric light would not pay for years, as landlords would not put it into their tenants. houses. He could not follow Mr Mostyn Williams in his argument that the electric light would not reduce the consumption of gas. It was an ingenious argument, but be could not accept it. He could only compare it to Mr Armstrong's recent state- ments in the newspapers, in which that gentleman tried to prove that drinking was the greatest medium to temperance (laughter). There was fallacy somewhere. Mr Tilby said he had listened to the siren voice of Mr Mostyn Williams, which had lulled him into dreams, and there drifted across his vision the speeches of Mr Mostyn Williams in connection with the purchase of the Gas Works, when he at- tempted to prove that if the Council secured the works they would be able to supply gas at 2s 6d per ],000 feet. Now they were told that they were to have the electric light at 6d per unit, but he (Mr Tilby) hoped that there would be no pro- posal later on to apply for a Provisional Order to increase the price. Almost every town of impor- tance was fioing in for the electric light, and Rhvl could not afford to be behind other places. He would support the scheme, but he wanted to be honest with the people and tell thorn what it would cost. Mr E P Jones supported the Committee and said that even if they lost Id or 2d in the £ they would have to get the electric light. Mr Frimston did not think that they had con- sidered the matter. He could not forget that the Council had been "cooking" the accounts for years, so as not to have to face a deficiency. He did not think that at present the return would be sufficient to pay for the electric light, Would the Council lay down mains to light one house in the East End. Capt Keatinge The Marine Hydro will take 60 to 100 lights, Mr Frimston added that Worcester had lost £1400 on the electric light last year. He suggest- ed that they should light the front and principal streets in the first place. The Chairman referred to what had happened at Llandudno and Colwyn Bay, where prosperity had reigned since old fogies and non-progressive men had been cleared off the governing body of the town. He asked that Rhyl should be pushed ahead and not made to lag behind. Mr Berrie moved as an amendment that the question be submitted to the ratepayers before the Council finally decided to apply to the Local Government Board for the loan. He was thoroughly in favour of the electric light. Mr Joseph A. Wllliams urged the Council not to waste time, but to push forward the electric light scheme. Mr Robert Jones seconded Mr Berrie. A vote was taken when the report of the Coun- cil was carried, Nlr Berrie's amendment being de- feated by 8 votes to 6. The Council having ordered several parents to be prosecuted for not sending their children regularly to school, the proceedings closed.
