A NEW ERA. TO-DAY a new era in the history of the port of Fishguard will dawn. For the first time an Atlantic greyhound will enter her harbour for the purpose of landing both mails and passengers, who will proceed direct by a non- stop train to Paddington. In effect the liner, having crossed the Atlantic, will terminate her voyage at Fishguard, which in this in- stance has been her destination, instead of serving merely as a port of call. It would be difficult indeed to over-estimate the signifi- cance of this event for, experimental though it be, all who are cognisant of the situation must be convinced of its entire success, and that it will speedily be followed by tangible results. The twin-towns cannot, of course, be expected to benefit directly by the transit -t ..iu.;o U..I..1'1 vuguj Hituupii Liicu' area, but the indirect results which may be antici- pated must be considerable. the added prestige conferred upon the port cannot fail to induce increasing numbers of shipping firms to avail themselves of the unrivalled facilities which it offers for various purposes, and the greater the activity prevailing in the harbour and on the railway the greater will be the number of men employed in the district, and the greater the amount of money derived from outside sources which will flow into the coffers of local tradesmen. In a word, every additional man engaged by the Company represents a district addition-how- ever slight—to the commercial prosperitv of the locality.
We wish it to be clearly understood that we do not in any way hold ourselves responsible for the opinions expressed in correspond- ence appearing under the above heading.— ED. SCLEDDY READING ROOM. To the Editor of the County Echo." Sir,-In thanking your correspondent for his very kind allusion to my paper on "Thomas Carlyle," which I read at the Sclcddy Reading Room, may I ask why is it that such an institution has not been started in Fishguard, where young men can meet for social inter- course, instead of as they do now, parading aimlessly about the town, or otherwise, indulging, not wisely but too well" at one or the other taprooms, which are conspicuous by their great number in Fishguard. Where is the intelligent, studious, sober-minded citi- zen to come from I ask, if our boys and young men are so sadly neglected ? My experience at our institute in Scleddy, I must say, is most encouraging, although most of our young men here are farm servants and farmers' sons, who are, when not otherwise occupied in the farmyard, all day long "ploughing their furrows alone," but have a real grasp, never- theless, of the passing events of the day, which I discovered, to my great astonishment, when reading my brief remarks on the Sage of Chelsea," and the storm of applause which greeted the mentioning of the name of the author of "Fars Clavagera," which reflects the highest credit en the homes in which it it has been their privilage to be reared in. We find already in Fishguard, parallel with the rapid growth of the little town, evils grow- ing up, equally as rapid, which have been for generations past the bane and curse of the great cities. As it is better late than never, why not emulate the young pioneers of Scleddy, and at once start some such institutes so as to counteract the evil influences and attrac- tions, and everything else that is pernicious to the young.—Yours, etc., J. B. WILLIAMS. Scleddy Park, March 2qth, 1908. [
LORD CHANCELLOR'S CHURCH LIVINGS IN PEMBROKESHIRE. To the Editor of County Echo Sir,—I think it is high time to draw public attention to the manner in which the Lord Chancellor's patronage of livings in Pem- c 0 b brokeshire is being executed. Bigoted Con- servative persons are continually appointed to such benefices, and that over the heads of Liberal clergymen. A little while ago, there was a Lord Chancellor's living vacant in the North of Pembrokeshire, and among the applicants for the same was a clergyman who has been a consistent Liberal for very many years, and who has voted for Mr J. Wynford Phillips, and has been on his public platform every time he has been before the constitu- ency. He also lives in Pimbrokeshire, but a Conservative clergyman from Carmarthen- ,Y shire was appointed to the living. Was not that a shabby, dirty trick ? It is but fair that the Liberal voters of Pembrokeshire should know till.f am &c., March 31st, 1908. AWAKE.
BAYVILI Re-opening Sc rv ices. -,r lie re-opening ser- I vices of St Andrew's Church, Bayvil, after its restoration, will be held on Sunday next April 5th. The Rev J Mvfenvdd Morgan^ vicar of St Dogmell s, will preach at Bayvil Church at 2.20, and at Nevern Church at 6 p.m. The reputation of Mr Myfenydd Morgan as a popular preacher in these dis- tricts is well-established, and he will doubt- lessly draw crowded congregations. The offertories will be devoted to the Restoration Fund.
FISHGUARD. AUGUST BANK HOLIDA Y.An Eistedd- fod-on an extensive scale-will be held at HERMON CHAPEL on August Bank Holi- day next.—Fuller particulars next week.- Advt EASTER CARDS and Easter Novelties for sale at the Echo" Newsagencies—West- street and High-street. Supervision of Workhouse Children.—At last week's meeting of the Haverfordwest Board of Guardians, an application was received from Mr Henry Perkins, High-street, Fishguard, for a little girl at present in the Workhouse. The application was granted.— Mr W J Owen, enquired what supervision was exercised over children leaving the Workhouse in that manner. He was person- ally acquainted with instances where the little ones had been treated like dogs. Of course that was quite exceptional.—The Clerk explained that every child sent out was under the supervision of the Medical Officer of Health, and the Relieving Officer, who fur- nished reports. Petty Sessions. The monthly Petty Sessions for the Kernes Division will be held in the Market Hall, Fishguard, on Tuesday afternoon. The Isolation Tent.—The Haverfordwest Rural District Council has appointed a special committee with the object of considering 1 whether some arrangement can be entered into with the Fishguard Urban District Council regarding the joint use of the isola- tion tent, to which reference was made in the columns of our last issue. columns of our last issue. Educational. — The County Education Committee has rejected a proposal to sub- stitute bricks for stone in the coignes of the new elementary school now being erected at Fishguard, and the original specifications will accordingly be adhered to. Application has been received by the Committee from both the Board of Education and the Governors of the Fishguard Intermediate School enquiring whether or not the County Council wished to have the loan of £200 under Clause 62 of the scheme. It was decided that the Clerk should reply to the Board giving full particulars of the matter. Football.—Fishguard A.F.C. entertained Milford Priory Mission in a return fixture upon the Maesgvvynne Field on Saturday afternoon. Owing to the various changes which have taken place in the management of the home club, the fixture had been over- looked and it was only with, the utmost difficulty that a team could, at the eleventh hour, be obtained, many of the regular players having imperative prior engagements. Under the circumstances, it is scarcely surprising that victory rested with the visitors to the tune of two goals to nil, though it must be confessed that their hosts put up a plucky fight against adverse circumstances, and that, although defeated, they were by no means disgraced. Convivial Councillors.—The members and officials of the Fishguard Urban District Council will be entertained to a banquet by the Chairman (Mr J R Richards, J.P.) at the Commercial Hotel, tomorrow (Friday) even- ing, when the Misses Rees may be relied upon to provide a sumptuous and appetizing repast. U.D.C. Election.—The first annual election of five members to the Fishguard Urban District Conncil will take place on Monday, when Mr A J Hodges, the clerk to the authority will act as Returning Officer. The polling station will be at the Market Hall and will be open between the hours of noon and eight o'clock in the evening. As previously announced in these columns, there are two candidates for each of the seats, and this will entail a somewhat lengthy "count," the operation being less expedious than would be the case were the urban area divided into wards. Nevertheless it may safely be assumed that the result of the poll will be known at a considerably earlier hour than was the case in connection with the record contest of a year ago—probably shortly after ten o'clock. Z-1 Business Alterations. Large plate-glass windows have recently been erected in place of the somewhat smaller ones in Anchor House, and have improved the general appearance of the establishment considerably. Mrs Roberts has recently received a large con- signment of new goods which are being dis- played to much advantage in the new windows. Complimentary Concert.— The Temper- IIcill .n.0 on Fridnj' evening the SCeHe of a complimentary concert to Mr James Owen, in recognition of his invaluable ser- vices upon the local concert platform extend- ing over a long period of years. The weather was of an extremely boisterous character, and the attendance was not, consequently, of so satisfactory a nature as could have been hoped for. Nevertheless the number of tickets which had been disposed of indicated in no uncertain fashion the high esteem in which the beneficiare is held throughout the town and its immediate environs, and there is no reason to fear that the financial result of the function was in any way impaired by the unfavourable climatic conditions which prevailed. The chair was very ably filled by Mr T Lewis, who, in the course of a few brief, yet appropriate,introductory remarks,character ised the object of the concert as being a very deserving one, and dwelt upon the eminent desirability of recognising in tangible form the services which Mr Owen had, throughout an extensive period, rendered to all causes deserving of recognition, particularly in connection with eisteddfodau. The artistes, one and all acquitted themselves with ex- emplary ability, and it' would be invidious, either to single out for special mention any individual, or to enumerate the constant succession of encores which were reasonably demanded. Suffice it to detail the pro- gramme, which was as follows :— Song, Rwy'n myn'd i rywle," Mr Tom John; recitation, "Mother's Baby," Miss Maud Blanc; solo, "Bwthyn y Weddw," Miss Evans, Manorowen Mill; solo, Dowch i'r Frwydr," Mr Titus Jones; duett, Messrs Gad Edwards and Tom John; solo, Revenge," Mr D j Richards duett," Flower Gatherers," Misses Maggie Bevan and Bessie Narbett (en- t, cored) solo, Hen Gymru anwylaf," Gad Edwards (encored) recitation, "A ydyw dy galon yn teimlo," Miss Davies duett, Flow gently Deva," Messrs D J Richards and James Owen Male Voice Party, Onward Christian Soldiers solo, 0 p;#i na bai Llewellyn," Miss Bessie Narbett (encored) duett, Gwys i'r Gad," Messrs Gad Edwards and Titus Jones solo, Gwalia Wen," Miss Bevan solo, The young brigade," Mr D J Richards; solo, Merch y Melinydd," Miss Evans, Manor- owen Mitl; solo, "Llwybr y Wyddfa," Mr Tom John solo, Titus Jones. The arduous duties of accompanists were distributed be- tween the Misses E A Howells, Myfanwy Davies, of Llangloffan Lily Rosser, and Miss Lilwall, of Pen Cw each of whom ac- quitted herself in a manner which left no grounds for criticism. At the close of the proceedings, Mr L Evans proposed, and Mr Arthur Davies, of Goodwick, seconded, a hearty vote of thanks to Mr Lewis for his services in the chaii, to Mr Wr D Lewis for his able assistance in a secretarial capacity, and to all who had contributed towards the success of the evening. The motion was -arri :arried by acclamation. [ Sea News.—The ship Leyland Brothers," in command of Capt D J Morgan,Kensington- street, recently arrived at Oregon and reported all well. Writing on March 13th last, Capt Morgan says: -N,othln, gives me more pleasure than to see the Echo" among the mails after a long and weary sea passage. Fishguard has, I presume, altered considerably since I left the place five years ago."—Capt Morgan is correct in thinking so,and we hope he will have a pleasant homeward voyage and be again enabled to visit his native town. z;1 Presentation.—At the entertainment held at the Methodist Chapel on Wednesday evening of last week, as reported in these columns, Mr Thomas Bowen, carpenter, was the recipient of a presentation for his services as teacher of tonic solfa to the children during the winter months.

It is believed he is not further away than Portugal. The validity of the deed executed by Mr Richards before he left Swansea, transferring all the furniture at the house in Gwydr-terrace to his wife is being challenged.—As already reported in these columns, Mrs Jenkins, of Gwaun House, is, unfortunately, the heaviest sufferer by Richards' defalcations.
