Autumn Salmon Fishing on the River Clwyd. TO THE EDITOR OF THE RHYL JOURNAL. SIR,—I take it Major Leslie's and Mr H G Stock's letters in your paper on the above subject are aimed at the preservation of salmon, especially when in a gravid state. But I think both are on the wrong track in the main extent. What difference does the quantity of fish killed on the rod from Oct 31 to Nov 14 make compared with the quantity that are poached in the higher reaches this time of the year and all along the rivers generally when the fish are in them ? In my opinion there is far too much watching ot rods and nets-the people who supply the board with funds—and too little watching for genuine poaching. In fact, two years ago the board took the keeper off the higher reaches of the Elwy when the rod season was finished, and set him on again on the following March 1st, when the rods commenced, assuming, I suppose, there was no work for him when the rods were off. I wonder who looked after the salmon then, when they were on the spawning beds and wanted most looking after ? Ccfn Weir is nothing more than a salmon trap. Fish cut themselves open, and probably die after it, in trving to get up, and many never get up at all, but lie below in the different pools where they are gaffed up in large quantities. In the upper reiehes of the Clwyd and Elwywedog salmon are poached wholesale in fact the smaller the stream the easier they are poached. As regards netting if this was only allowed in the sea at the mouth of the river the fish would then have a better chance. Now when they get into the river, if they happen to lie in a pool between Rhyl and Rhudd- lan, there is very little chance of their missing a net. How can the three watchers the board employ watch 60 miles of river and another small salmon river at Llanddulas, eight miles away ? The way the Board of Conservators is appointed could be vastly improved, instead of being left to members of the County Council to propose a member of the board-in many cases as an honour in return for help at election time-who probably takes not the slightest interest in salmon preservation. I think six out of thepreeent sixteen may do if they were elected by the licence holders of the previous year, rod and nets men. We should then get men on who took an interest in their work and attended the meetings. We have now an efficient and painstaking honorary secre- tary. My wish is that we had as efficient a board at the back of him. I consider the above points cf far more importanc3 than arguing about an occasional fish being foul-hooked or about 14 daya'imore close time, or 21 hours' more close time with the nets. There are plenty of fish in the river if the board kept enough watchers to protect them in their spawning operations.—Yours truly, Anglers' Stores, Rhyl. H. W. ROBERTS.
Wanton Destruction. TO TIIE EDITOR OF TIlE: RHYL JOURNAL. Sir.T)er,pite all humanising and civilising in- fluences, there exists in the country a tremendous amount of devilry pure and simple of one kind or another in our midst. When a man falls a victim to the flesh, or when the world gets the upper hand of him, excuses may often be advanced by pleading the magnitude of the temptation. But what excuse can be found for the man who wantonly destroys for the theer sake of destruc- tion ? Trees have been planted in various streets in this town which have been afterwards most ruthlessly destroyed. One day this week I noticed a fine sapling in Grange Road cut in two, having been pulled down by sheer and brutal force. At Towyn in Merioneth, we read, people are in the habit of entering gentlemen's gardens to cut down their young trees, after they have had a few years' growth; and tho object of the offences cannot be imagined. One is almost inclined to regret that capital punishment is confined to murder cases.—Yours truly. AKBORETUS. —?
Flint. Death of a Magistrate. The death took place on 1\1 onday at his residence, Pendre, Flint, of Mr Charles Napier Hull, who had been a member of tho Flint Borough Bench of magistrates since 1894. For many years be held the position of manager of the North Wales Paper Mills, Flint, which he resigned about three years ago.
llanddulas. A Call. The Rev J R Jones, Congregational minister, Llanddulas, after a period of useful activity in this parish, has received a call to the charge of the Welsh Congregational Churches at Henryd and Roewen, in the Vale of Conway and it is understood he will accept the same. Mr Jones is a grandson of the late John Hughes, of Bodedeym, Anglesey, a Welsh worthy better remembered perhaps by his bardic name of Gobach.
Tho Thriftless Working Man. Another instance cf how some working men squander their earnings was afforded at the Rhyl Police Court last Saturday morning, when James Conlin, labourer, 7 Panton Place, Denbigh, was brought up in custody before Messrs John Foulkes and J H Ellis on a charge of drunkenness and disorderly behaviour. It appears that defendant had '.been working at Llannefydd for the Rhyl Council, and coming to Rhyl on Friday last he got on the spree. According to P C. William Davies, his condition was such that they re- fused to serve him with drink at the Britannia Inn, High Street, and on leaving the house he started fighting with another man.—Inspector Pearson said the other man would appear before the Bench in due course. -Deferdtnt pleaded guilty, and in view of his previous bad record he was sent to prison for 14 days in default of a fine of 5s and 69 4d costs.
The Rhyl HANDBOOK and DIARY, 1905. This reliable publication is now in the press, and will be issued at the close of the year free as a sup- plement to the Rhyl Journal." The publication is an old and useful one. In addition to an illustrated calendar, a diary, and much reading matter of general interest, it will contain a summary of the local events during the year, and a list of local authorities, institutions, &c. This is a genuine publication. It necessarily has a large circulation, and is a book greatly in use all the year round. Advertisers may rely upon it that this is not a catch- penny, issued as a good many pub- lications are merely as a pretext to secure advertisements for concerns which have a very limited and ephemeral circulation. We do not charge fancy prices for advertisements. Our rates are most moderate, whilst the medium the advertisements are published in is the very best issued in Rhyl.

J Denbighshire Education j Committee. The Education Committee for Denbighlhire met on Friday, Mr W G Dodd presiding. Llanfair School. Mr A T Davies, chairman of the Staff and Supply Committee, moved that the reports of his Committee be confirmed. One of the recommendations, he said, was that the Llanfairtalhaiarn National School should be reported to the Board of Education as a school that should be closed. The grounds upon which that step was taken were that the average attendance for the past year was only 22.6, and at present it was even less. Within 250 yards, in the same village, was a Council school in which sufficient accommodation could be and would be provided for all the children from the National School, who at the Council school would have the benefit of a larger and more efficient staff. There was an endowment in the parish of £ 32 per annum, but this should ba used in aid of elementary education in the parish generally. Teachers' Engagements. Mr D S Davies stated that the Committee had dis- cussed the question of teachers' salaries generally, and they had given notice to all head teachers to terminate tho arrangements with them at the end of three months. That was necessary in order that all head teachers might be engaged under a uniform agreement. In regard to the question of salaries, he hoped that teachers would not press for advances at present. In fact the Committee had virtually come to the conclusion that they would increase no salary at all until they had had experience of the working of the Act for one year. Repair of Non-provided Schools. The Rev E Roberts, chairman of the Building Com- mittee, in submitting the reports of his committee, stited that t3 a large extent the committee were satisfied with the manner in which their requirements in respect of the non-provided schools were being carried out, or with the promises they received, but there were ceitain schools the managers of which had not done what was required, and had not even given satisfactory assurance that they would comply with tho request of the Com- mitted on such matters as sanitation, ventilation, and so forth. Colonel Cornwallis West sai,l every endeavour had been made and would be made to meet the require- ments of the Education Committee. It was quite fair and proper that the schools should be in proper order, particularly as regarded sanitary matters, but he hoped no actual pressure would be applied unless there was an evident sign on the part of the managers entirely to overrida the wishes of the Committee. Financial. Mr Christmas Jones, chairman of the Finance Com- mittee, stated that the estimated expenditure, otherwise than from loans, during the perioi from October 1, 1901, to May 31, 1905, was £ 37,550, of which £ 10,330 would have 13 be raised out of the rates. As a penny rate would rroduce £ 2,060, this meant a rate of 5d in the pound. Teaching of Temperance Principles. A resolution of the Abergele District Temperance Association in favour of the adoption of temperance reading books elementary schools being sub- mitted. Mr A T Davies moved that the organiser be asked to report upon the practice of other counties in this matter to the Staff and Supply Committee. The resolution was carried, and the organiser was directed to report to tlia Staff and Supply Committee.
Christmas Literature. A grand Christmas double number of the Strand Magazine" makes its welcome appearance in a gorgeous cover printed in colours and enoased in gold. It seems only befitting that the premier magazine in this country should be so happily bedecked, for on closer inspection wo find that the contents are bright and attractive, and quite up to the high standard to which we are accus- tomed in this popular monthly. It is quite impossible to mention the numerous stories and articles in detail, so that we must needs content ourselves with a representative selection from an enormous budget, First and foremost, pathetic interest attaches to the story which occupies the place ofhoiour. It is announced to be the very last Sherlock Holmes story that Sir Conan Doyle will ever write. When it became known that tho "Strand Magazine "had acquired the sole rights in any writings of W W Jacobs for some years, great joy was expressed by its readers, and the first of a new series of short stories, entitled The Temptation of Samuel Burge," is brimful of "WW J's sparkling humour. Mr Robert Barr contributes a charming story entitled "Lady Beatie's Spanish Investment." A most interesting sea yarn by Morley Roberts follows, succeeded by an article of high scientific value entitled The Promise of Science," consisting of a symposium of eminent scientists on the factors, food, and forces of the future. The names of such well-known men as professor Berthelot, Lord Kelvin, Lurd Avebuiy, Sir William Crookes, Sir Wm Ramsay, Sir Oliver Lodge, and Professor Ray Lmkester contribute to make the article one of the highest possiblescientifio importance. A semi- scientific article by the Astronomer Royal, Sir Robert Ball, deals with double stars, and is illustrated by unique photogarphs, reproduced by kind permission of the-Royal Astronomical Society. Max Pembeiton contributes a characteristic story in his best vein, and "How a Fashion Plate is Made" is an article that should appeal to every lady in the land. Space, however, prohibits us from going into further details concerning this amaziog shillirgsworth, but it is interesting to mention that a powerful Christmas Ghost Story by Marie Corelli is issued as a companion to the Christmas number of the Strand Magazine, at the modest pried of one shilling. Among the multitude of Christmas numbers on the bookstalls the "Sunday Strands stands pro- minent, for its beautiful cover of a New England Puritan maiden returning through the snow from church is very striking. Its contents, too, have the same air of distinction. This is, indeed, a Christmas number and not merely a magazine issued at (albristrnas time. The Sunday Strand Christmas number is turned out splendidly, and from cover to cover leaves nothing to be desired.
Connah's Quay. Funeral of Alderman James Reney. At Connah's Quay Cemetery, on Saturday, the remaics of Mr James Reney, alderman of the County Council, were laid to rest. After a short service at Marsh-cottage, deceased's residence, the mourners proceeded to the Methodist New Connexion Chapel, where a service was conducted by the Rev J Storey, the Rev W Carter, and the Rev Mr Robinson (Liverpool). Among the mourners were Messrs William, James, T J., Walter, A E and A J Reney (sons) Mesdamea Vickers, R Jones, and Hogg, and Miss Reney (daughters); Capt C A Reney (brother), Mr T Rowlands (brother-in-law), Mrs J Reney and Mrs A J ReDey (daughters-in-law) Messrs J Vickers, RJones, J Copp&ck, J Hogg(sons-in-law), Mr A R Coppack (grandson) and Mrs Coppack. Representing the County Council were Mr J H Lewis, M.P, Dr Williams, Messrs J Hall, Lindop, T H Ollive (deputy clerk to the County Council), (Sc. Various other bodies, including the magis- tracy of the county, were also strongly represen- ted. Proposed Extension. A Committee of the Flintshire County Council, with Alderman W Elwv Williams (Rhyl) as chairman, opened an inquiry on Monday at Con- nah's Quay into the application of the Connah's Quay Urban Council for powers to extend their boundaries so as to include the township of Shotton and parts of the parishes of Saltney and Sealand, the whole being at present within the rural district of Hawarden. In the event of the foregoing being granted the Urban Council farther applied for an increase in the number of their members from 11 to 15. After Mr Greer bad stated the application, Mr Moss took objec- tion to the validity of the notice nerved by the Connah's Quay Urban Council, on the ground that if an imaginary line was drawn at right angles, as they suggested, from the point of Shotton Lane, where it touched the main road, it would leave the whole of what was north-west of that line in the parishes of Sealand and Saltney ex- cluded. The notice, being bad as to these two parishes, was substantially bad as to the whole. With this objection Mr Ellis Griffith, Mr Trevor Lloyd, Mr Fenna, and Mr Jollilfe associated themselves. After consultation the Chairman announced that the Committee dedded that they could not proceed in respect of the portions of Saltuey and Sealand affected by the objection, but they held that the notice was good in respect of the township of Shotton. It was for the applicants to say whether they would proceed in regard to Shotton only, or make a fresh applica- tion. Mr Greer announced that the Council would make a fresh application, and the inquiry reached an unexpectedly early termination. Great ex-,itement prevailed among the opponents of tha scheme.

I Unionism in Flintshire. "A Farmer writes as follows:—The Conser- vative and Unionist cause suffers sadly throughout the county through the deplorable apathy and lack of self-sacrifice on the part of many of its adherents. I am convinced that with steady perseverance and hard work this constituency can be wrested from the Radicals. One great fault on the part of the Unionists is that they do not hold meetings as often as they should to enlighten the electorate, and put the questions of the day fair and square before them. This should be done systematically, and not with a rush at election times, which is of little use. This want of public meetings gives the impression to many that the Unionists have no case, or are afraid to discuss and publish it. Where is the Educate, educate, educate," recommended by the late Lord Beacons- field, to be found in this county ? At the next general election it will be impossible for the farmers to vote for the Radicals, since the latter are unfavourable to the agricultural rates act, and to do away with this would be a serious loss to the farming interest. Then the labourer, if pro- perly enlightened, will see that it will not be to his interest to support the Radical cause, if he is to obtain regular work and better wages. And the electors in general will see that the agitation against the education act, if successful, must add considerably to the taxation of the county. Give us more meetings, more light and leading, more pluck and energy, and we will win.
Mold. Fatal Acoident. On Saturday Mr J Robeits Jones, of Rhyl, Deputy Coroner for Flintshire, conduced an inquest at l\ldd, concerning the death of William Copple, aged 21 years, who was employed as a wirman by the National Telephone Company. On Thursday workmen, incIadiDgCopplp,w0re engaged in laying telephone wires to Isfryn, on Ruthin road. Copple was up a trpe, and was holding on to a brauch with the left hand whilst sawing another branch with the light band. Suddpllly the branch he was holding brcki?, andhe fell to the ground, a distmee of about 26fc. Ho was removed to the Mold Coitiga Hospital, where he died. A verdict of accidental death was returned. Mr Dutton, on behalf of the Telephone Company, expressed regret at the cccurreuoe and sympathy with the relatives. The jury joined in these expressions. Farming Operations. It is rarely that such weather as we had last week overtakes this country so early, and following as it has so suddenly after the openness and sun- shine of the first half of the mouth, it has come much in the nature of a surprise. It is fortunate, however, that farm work is so forward, and that the majority of agriculturists can afford to regard the situation with a certain degree of compla- cency. Most of the roots are under cover, and except for a few swedes, which are capable of standing a considerable degree of frost without injury, there is little on the ground to take harm. The later sowings of corn would perhaps have been all the better for a further prolonged mild- ness, to establish a good foothold, but the early forage crops will take little or no harm from the check. The frost so far has afforded an excelle nt opportunity for the cartage of manure, although this is an operation that is as well deferred as long as possible till near the ploughing in. Deoay of Industries. In Mold, Buckley, Hawarden, and Holywell hundreds of able-bodied men are standing at the corners of the streets, willing to work, waiting for something to turn up. They wait with that hope deferred which maketh the heart sick, In Flint- shire there are toilers who in want and weariness dailv battle with the demon poverty. The gradual decay and almost total extinction of the manu- facturing industries of the villages are factors whnh must be considered. The few trades that still survive have mainly to do with repairs and little with the conversion of raw material into manufactured articles. It would be idle to sup- pose that these industries can ever be revived in their old form, but in some Flintshire villages earnest efforts are being made to fostsr the growth of various arts and crafts.
HOLLOWAY'S PILLS AND OINTMENT. Dyspepsia Jaundice. These complaints are the result of a dis- ordered liver, which secretes bile in quality or quantity incapable of digesting food. Digestion requires a free How of healthy bile, to ensure which Holloway's Pills and Ointment have long been famous, far eclipsing every other medicine. Food, irregularity of living, climate and other caupes are constantly throwing the liver into disorder, but that important organ can soon be regulated i and healthily adjusted by Holloway's Pills &nd Oint- ment, which act directly upon its vital secretion. The Ointment rnbbed on the skin penetrates immediately to the liver, whose blood and nerves it rectifies. One trial is all that is needed, a cure will soon follow.
St Asaph. The Encampment Question. The citizens of St Asaph must look to their laurels if they mean to secure next year's en- campment of the Yeomanry or any other organisa- tion. Something more than mere talk must be done. Denbigh and other places are also bidding for this favour, but if the St Asaph people ehoir a thoroughly enterprising spirit in the matter they may yet come out on top, for the Bites the neigh- bourhood affords are second to none for en- campment purposes and much better than many from which the final choice might be made. That it means money for the trades- people the following will show. The amount spent by the Denbighshire Hussars Imperial Yeomanry at Llanfairfechan last year was £6620. That, of course, docs not include the private spending of the men and officers, but only the money spent in pay and maintaining the regiment in camp. Everything was puvohased locally, therefore it can be easily seen that the Llanfair- fechan people were well repaid for their enter- prise in the matter. Trade is none too brisk that St Asaph people can afford to let the chance of securing the encampment slip by without making a strong bid for it. Therefore the sooner some tangible proof of their keenness in the matter is forthcoming the better will their chance be,

A London Loan Exhibition. TO THE EDITOR OF THE RHYL JOURNAL. Sir,—We shall be much obliged if you will kindly allow us to ask the readers of your paper to help in making known the plan of a small His- torical Loan Exhibition, that is to bs held in Lon- don, (in one of the large private houses) in May, 1905. The Exhibition is to be entitled Notable Women," and the promoters of it are very anxious to get together a really unique and interesting collection of small portraits, miniatures, auto- graphs, seals, trinkets, fans, watches, ornaments, books, needlework, etc, that have belonged to or are connected with any Notable Women" either of ancient or of modern times. They are anxious that not only British women shall be represented, but to go back if possible to the early ages of Greek and Roman history, and even further back still, and find something con- nected with the women of ancient Egypt and Assyria. It anyone can give suggestions as to what relics are known to be in existence and available, or even as to the names of Notable Women" who should be included in the list of those who have made their mark on the world's history, Queens and their Courts, the old Abbesses, Founders of Hospitals, Colleges, etc, Writers, Musicians, women of all times and all countries; it would be a help to the Hon. Secretaries, as it will be no easy task to determine who should and who should not be'represented, and of whom memorials can or cannot be found. A Catalogue, with biographical notes, will be prepared, and will be ready for sale at the open- ing of the Exhibition. All possible care will be taken of the treasures lent, they will ba watched day and night by police and other responsible persons, and will be fully insured against fire and burglary. The Exhibition will be open two days. The actual things will not be wanted until May, but it is of great importance to the Committee to get a liet as soon as possible of the things that may be available for exhibition and which must be printed in the Catalogue. When all the offers have been received, the Committee will decide what can be shown effectively under glas3 in the space at their disposal and will forward printed labellf and full directions about sending the loans they are able to accept. The object of the Exhibition is to collect a Fund for sending out more workers to develop the work of the Girls' Friendly Society in India, Canada, South Africa, and to keep in touch with the many girls in thos3 distant parts of the Empire.- Yoafs faithfully, LILY FRERE, 28 Bryanston Square, W.
