A new Free Church of Wales, which has been erected in Claughton Road. Birkenhead, at a cost of ;:3000, was formally opened by special services held on Saturday and Sunday week, in which the Rev M. 0 Evans oi Wrexham,and the Rev. W. O. Jones, of Liverpool, the founder of the denomination, took part. The" Drych" says the Rev W Cai-aclcc jonef, formerly minister of Hermon Chapel, Oswestty who is at present on a preaching tour in the United States has received a unanimom invitation to succeed the late Rev Dr Gwesyn Jones, as pastor of the Bethesda Congregational Church, Utica, one of the largest Welsh churches in the United States. It is an interesting sign of the complete:uncification of tne Liberal Party,at a moment when me Conser- vatives are hopelessly split, that Sir Edward Grey is to assist Mr Lloyd George in his political campaign in Canarvonshire, which will begin in September. Mr Lloyd George's opponnent, Mr NavJor, was welcomed at the Bangor Conservative Club on Friday Mr Naylor so well appreciates the Liberal strength 01 the constituency that he presents himself as a patriot rather than a paity man A special Gorsedd of the "Bards of the Isle of Britain was summoned by the 'Chief Bard Positive' Gwilvn Colywd on Friday on the Mount of Songs un the score of Lake, for the purpose of confirming the degrees confirmed upon twenty-four primary elders appointed to attend the Coronation ceremony last year, but was adjourned until Septem- er the 23rd on account of the wet weather Only about a score of people atttended, and only two of the primary bards including Cowlyd, put in an appearance, but they initiated and invested a few ov^tes as members of the brotherhood, including Mr. J. R. Furness, the curator of the Royal Cambrian Academy of Arts Livtnpool Welsh Nonconformists have issued a manifesto in reference to the education rate avowing their readiness to pay rates for undenominational schools directly under popular control, but they oppose any Act which rates the whole country for the purpose of an denomination or sect. be it that of the Church of England or the Church of Rome Hence they refuse to pay the education rate, because it involves the maintenance of schools the object of wh.cn is to teach creads and confession contrary to tni'.h, and wherein proselytism is practiced and children are taught that their parents are heretics and enemies of the Church of Chiist. They also object because the Act interferes with the consciences of sch. olmasters and teachers. At the Bala County Court on Monday before Judge W. Evans, John Jones, Gelligreen. Bala, sued Hugh Dier. of Warrington, for ^"5 for "damage done to a horse and servant on the 23rd May in a collision. Mr Dier made a counter claim for -40 for damage done to his motor-car. 11-c Jordan, Bala appeared for Jones, and Mr John Williams, Dolgelly tor Mr Dier. In delivering judgment the judge said the cause of the accident was the violation of the regu lations in not stopping when the plaintiff' raised his hand. He dismissed the counter-claim and awarded £ 5 damages and costs to the plaintiff Mr. A. Bodvil Roberts, the Deputy-Coroner for Canarvonshire, on Tuesday held an inquest at Bangor on the body of Henry Bell, green grocer, Glanadda. On Monday the deceased was found dead in one of the rooms at the Coach and Horses Temperance Lodging House. Dean street. It appears from evidence that Bell had gone to sleep at the Coach and Horses during th; earlier part of the afternoon, and at 7 p.m. he was found dead with his head resting on his arm.—Dr Rowland Jones said that the cause of the death was syncope and suffocation, due to the deceased having rested his nose and mouth on his arm.—"Death from Natural Causes" was the verdict. The officers of the Oswestry Passive Resistance League have just issued a communication bearing the heading For God and My Right," stating that the first batch of conscientious objectors to the payment of the rate under the Education Act will appear before the Oswestry bench of magistrates to-day, and following the hearing of the summonses against them a public demonstration will be held on the Bailey Head, at which addresses will be delivered by various speakers from near and far. At'Bangor Petty Sessions on Wednesday, W. Lewis Griffith, the licensee of the Cambria Inn James Street, Bangor, was summoned for having kept his house open during Sunday, the 9th inst. Jane Hughes, his housekeeper, was summoned for aiding and abetting, and Ann Williams, Brick Street, was summoned for being on the priemises. The police noticed Ann Williams enter and leave the house with a quart bottle of beer. The defence was that Ann Williams had been in attendance upon the child of Jane Hughes, and that the beer was given to her in the absence ot the landlord The Bench, consisting of four, being equally divided, the case was dismissed. At the Bangor Police Court on Wednesday. Ellen Jones, Caellwyngvydd, the wife of a Penrhyn Quarry striker, was summoned for threatening Hugh Evans, a returned striker, and with inciting a riot. Mr. S R. Dew prosecuted. The evidence showed that on the 8th inst that Evans was going into a butchers shop when the defendant called out to the butcher that he was a traitor and must not be served. The result was that a crowd assembled and the complain- ant was violently kicked by a number of men, who Mr Dew described as a pack of cowards. Police Sergeant Rowlands who rescued the complainant from the crowd, gave evidence as to the ill usage he was subjected to. The defendant who denied having called the complainant a traitor or having incited the crowd to attack him, was bound over to keep the peace for six months in her own recognisances of ^10 and two securities of _^5 each, and ordered to pay the costs. A alarming accident occured on Wednesday on the Great Western line between Shrewsbury and Ruabon. Accoiding to the official statement the Bristol express goods train to Manchester was passing through Chirk, and when a mile further on towards Ruabon the heavily ladened train suddenly left the metals. Sixteen waggons were derailed and a frightful crash followed as the train was going forty miles an hour. The stoker and driver fortunately escaped injuries, but the permanent way was torn up for nearly 200 yards and twisted in an indescribable manner. Three breakdown gangs managed to clear the line by noon, traffic having to be accordingly diverted to the single line system. All passenger trains were delayed, and many visitors to Shrewsbury floral fete were nearly two hours late. Investigations showed no axles broken, but it is impossible to state whether any obstruction was placed upot the metals. On Saturday Dr R J. Hughes, Coroner for Wesr Denbighshire, hell an inquest at Bylchau, near Denbigh, on the body of Pnillip Owen, carpenter Owen, who was sixty live years of age, started to Denbigh on Tuesday last in a spring cart taking with him several ladders. Immediately after starting it is surmised that one of the ladders struck the horse on the head,causing it to bolt down the steep hill in the direction of the town. Soon after the cart, with Owen underneath, was found upset on the side of the road, with horse struggling to get loose Owen received terrible injuries, and died on Thursday with- out having recovered consciousness. A verdict of accidental death was returned.
