Church Defence Meeting at St. Asaph. TJLE BISHOP OF ST. ASAPH ON THE LORDS AND THE BILL. Speaking at a meeting of the St Asaplh Church Defence Organisation on Friday night, Bishop Edwards s.aid that as Churchmen it was their supreme duty tc ward off from the Church all that tended to Ihurt or to hamper the Church in her spiritual work. They must ahvays keep taht motive before them clear and comtnanding. At the present moment they were watching with deep anxiety t'he progress of the Education Bill. In order justly to appreciate that measure they must regard it in its fufill and accurate historical :c context. It had often .been said that it was a great grievance to the Xonconfo-nmii-sts that the only school in the parish was a Church school. Talcing Sit Asaph as an example, whty was there only one school in that parish ? Long years ago, before the State 'or anybody else ever thought or cared about the_ education of the poor, the- Church, set- to work in providing a school for theim there. ThinHy-six years ago the Slrate. stepped in and said, "Your work is excellent, and we are passing this Act of 1870 not to siupipdant hut to supplemeent your schools and we hope that you will not only maintain ryouT 'old schools, buit go on building new ones." Upon the faith of that lpro-m-ise the Church had n t I spent millions upon the maintenance, the res- toration, and the buil-ding of sichools.—(Ap- plause). It was the Ohurdh, alone and unaid- ed, tiha't planted schools in every parish in this diocese, and when changes were proposed truth and justice should no be forgotten. THE LOfRlDiS' DfEVDTIOiN TO DUTY. The Education Bidl, 'She Bishop proceeded, is now passing through rhe House of Lords. You can read the debates for yourselves, anc jucige .whether ithis (great object is be,rig handled with less abiliifiy, less (technical knowledge, less capa- city for loking all round the subject, less des-re to be rigidly, fair and impartial in the House of Lords than in the House of Commons. There are two facts which may be mentioned without the suspicion of invidious comparison. Owing to the procedure followed in the House of Com- mons a considerable part of this bill was passed wdthiurt discussion. I do not think that a single clause, or even a line, will pass through the House of Lords without thorough examination and discussion. When the bill was in Commit- tee in the House of Ccm-mons I was frequently impressed iby the very sparse attendance during the Committee discussions. So far. in the House of Lords, crowded benches have- through- out marked the Committt-e stage Of the bill. The Lord President of the Council, who is in chad-go of the bill, has discharged his difficult task with conspicuous abill-ty and unfailing cour- tesy and good temper, and although the subject is one 'wh'¡ch arousestlhe feelings in no ordinary manner, I do not think that the severest critic can take- exception to the tone and temper dis- played throughout the w'hole discussion. 40 far as the Church is concerned, we only ask for our- selves the justice and the fair play which we desire earnestly for all other sections of the community. The appeal for justice is never ad- dressed in vain ito a .great and understanding people, and I diD not think that it widl be ad- dressed in vain in the present instance, HISTORICAL GROUXiDS OF DEFENCE. The more immediate subject for our discus- sion to-night turns upon the work of Our Church Defence League. The members of that Leag'ue undertake (to learn about the Church of England and to do all that .they can to strengthen 11-:= power for doing good and to try to interest their neighbours to do the same. Keener spirits may for a moment feel that this undertaking does not exhaust their aspirations. But I ask yo.u to cc -r the ifull meaning Of this undertaking. rill X 2 is worth defending which does not I I re. i .truth and justice, and no defence is -j,vin.g 'which dbels not put these in the forefront. If you will study the history of the Church in this 'land itfhrougih all the centuries of our history. I believe that that study will n-erve t.-o,u as nothing else could to -defend her highest interests. Looking at the matter as a Welsh- man, I find that the one great historical institu- tion whicli the Welsh nation possease, is the Church, just as the parish church in nearly every parish in Wales is Itlhe one historic all link between the past and the present, the one build- ing around which gather the most sacred asso- ciations of town and hamlet., th,2 one n.emorial of the fadtih and piety of ibygone centuries, the one structure that reveaJs to us in stone and paimteki windows fchait itihere were artisjts in Wales before our day and generations. THE DE.FIXITTOlX OIF A TRUE XATIOX- ALIST. The Welsih Nationalist is an interesting and soimetines boisterous figure in our modern life, 1 claim to ibe a Wellsh patriot, because I claim to have at heart the interests of the people to whom it is our pride to Ibelong.-(A,pplause,) But there are other definitions of Welsh patrio- tism. You must be a Nonconformist in religion and a Radiical in politics, and without this you cannot be in sympathy with twihat are called naJtionall movements. To state this defini- tion is enough to expose its absurdity. Fifteen ago the Church was denounced as alien. J You will observe to-day that we hear nothing of t'hese exploded im,is-r-eip,resen,t,ati'o.ns.-(Appla use THE NUMtERICAL AiRGUMENT. Even the numerical argument is being laid aside as an untrustworthy weapon.. This is a .wondrous and -remarkable change Whiy fifteen years ago the weakness of the Church in Wales was supposed to have been established beyond all question by the numerical argument To- day ,we are told that counting heads ihias nothing to do wk'n the question, aid tha: statistics are vain and idle delusions. I observe tha,, a dis- tinguished memlber of the I-alrin-istic Methodist -body, in testifying .to the contributions of his district, increased the figure from JB14000 to L21,090 by the simple process of counting three set of figures twice over. Of course, this was all inadvertence, burt it illustrates the evil days upOn which statistics in Wtales have fallen. Personally, I rejoice to find that these great subjects are to be treated on principle, and I

St Asaph Council Items. The St Asaph (FttintJ Rural District Council, at their monthly meeting last Friday, sealed the lease of the site of the additional water s'upply at Meii den. Permission to lay a pipe drain from his house across the roadway was accorded Major Tallents, the Council stipulating that the necessary axca- "atians must be' filled up as. speedily as possible, and that the Major accept the responsibility. Dir Lloyd Roberts (Medical Officer of Health), being asked to fifil up some returns relating to factories required by the Home Office said the additional work entailed by the reports should be paid for as extra work. ,k Howes Roberts suggested that the doctor be asted to report upon the returns and remark- ed that it was Only human for a main to ask for more salary when called upon to do more work. Xo man was so divine as to do more work with- out considering himself entitled to extra pay. It w'as decided to prepare a lrisit of factories in the district. Mr W S Roberts (Bodfari), was elected to re- present the Counoil on the Board of Governors of ;he North Wales University College. noll-

On Saturday Rhyl journeyed to Birkenhead in a Combination tournament at Rookville, and attracted a good attendance. Hughes com- men,ced Operations if or the Reds uphill, and a,fter each end had been visited and a corner forced by Iboth sides, Rhyl worked down, a,nd a long dropping shot from the left by Matthews de- ceived Chapman, who had the sun in his eyes, and dropped over his head into the net. After further ,fluctuating play .the Rlhtvl centre, Thomas, ran down the field, and was brought down in the penalty area, and Matthews easily scored a second goal after quarter of an hour. Birken- head -afterwards attacked, but their forwards were weak, and subsequently Rhyl had nearly all the play, Chapman bein'g tested more than Once. At length Macdonald broke away finely on the right, and, beating the opposing back, he centred beautifully, and Evans scored a grand goal. From a pretty centre by Evans, Birkenhead lost a fine chance Of equalising, and Morton 'gave Biackiburn a weak shot. Half. time-Rhyl, 2 .goals; Birkehead, 1. The se- cond half was marked by the shaky defence on bo-th sides. Nio less than eight goals were scored. The homesters scored five and the Rhylitee three. 00000 XiAXiTWIOH v. BAXGOR. Xantwich entertained Bangor on Saturday in a 'Combination fixture. The homesters were first in front, Arridge clearing a shot from Booth. Williams next kicked away from Gar- nett, and then .Bangor took up the attack, Oliver and Davies being prominent, Xantwich, how- ever, having slightly more of the play. Good work by tlhe BangOr left resulted in Poole fisting away from Oliver. Subsequently Williams got rid of two dangerous shots when the Xantwich forwards were well placed. The score at half- time was-Xantwich, 1; Ban-gor nil The homesters .made matters safe by adding another goal in the concluding half. 00000 WIG AX TiOWiX v. CHESTER.

The Town received a penal- ty, and Duckworth took the kick, beating Keeley with a fine effort. Tudor and TayPor ran well, the latter shooting behind when favourably placed. Walford ran round ^Jones, and putting in a high centre, there was a scrimmage in the Chester goal, from which Russell cleared.

Matrimonial Misery at Rhyl. 5 A IX/TFjR CHARGED WITH D ESERT IO-X. A story of matrimonial unhlappdness at Rhyl was unfolded with almost bruitaJ blumtness at Abergele Sessions on Saturday, when a pirainter named George Gregory, of 42 Kinmel Street, Rhyl, was charged by his wife with desertion, about two years agb, at Rhyl. Mrs Gregory appMed for a maintenance- order, Mr J Roberts Jones repir-esemted complainant and Mr F J Gamlin defended. The presiding magistrate was Mir J Hembert Roberts, M.I'. Mr Roberts jOmes said the parties were mar- ried at the Eingffislh Weisfieyian C'inapeJ, Rhyl, on October lgttlh, 1902. I'lie^r married life was not particularly happy. One clhild was born and it lived for eleven mo-nltibs. T.wo years ago Mrs Gregory had an illness and during that time' her husband trelated her very badiiy and left her wlhile she was in an extremely weak con- dition. The bulk of the furniture in the house belonged to t'he wife, butt the house was in the husband's name. iH-e had given notice to the house agent that he was leaving but he did not let hds wife knew where he<was going. It teemed that he had been in Wigian, and for two years his wife was uniawnre of his whereabouts and had to wait before being able to bring the pres- ent proceedings-. In the course of evidence bearing out Mr Robert's Jones' statements Mars Grego-ny said her "husband deserted h-cr,when she had only a penny and nowhere to g'o. He behaved very cruelly to her, threatening her and dra-giging her about by the hair. He did not teN her that he was going, but wrote to the landlord giving up. the house in Windsor street. lit was only quite recemitiy that she had found out where he was, when he had returned to Rlhyl. Wlitness had not lived a happy life with hi\In. Cross-examined Witness said that after they were married she and her bmshand lived at Sandycroft..She was obliged to return to her father's house for the birth of her baby, for she would have died if she had stayed with her husband, who was out of work at the time. He never gave her 30s. lie gave her 27s. a weelc while he was working. Mr Ga.miin Is it not a fact that you were continually quarrelling -Yes. Why, if he was cruel to you, have you not taken a summons out agtaimst hdm for cruelty ? —I took out the summons according to the solicitors advice. Wasn't your husband continually having to complain of you going to the R¡:'}1 Pla,l,,ice. ? -0, I can't dance. Was not the Plailace the cause of all the trouble --N,o, cert,ainily not. Did you ever call your baiby a b- thing ? Witness (emphatically) Certainly not. llr Gamlin: iDo you remember one night passing the Plal'ace with the baby in a pera-m- buJiator ?-I often passed. And do you remember saying to your husband If it was not for this b- thing here ? ■Qo-mpfilainanrt (tinrtenrupitting) No, certainly not. I neve-r used sudh language. flr Glamllin Is it not well known that you are a foul-imicuithed woman ?-lit is absolutely un- true. I never use such language. You never threw your wedding ring in the fire ?—'Xlothing of the kind. He stole it. Did you ever throw his wages at his head ? -N.e.v,er. Complainant also emphatically denied that it was her habit to be in bed and keep her husband without his breakfast. He neveir had to go to his father's house for his breakfast or any other meal. Htis father never came to the house and asked wihiy she had no breakfast for her husband, and she certainly never told him she had no ohipis and was not b- well going to work for chips. Slh-e did not tei-1 her husband she was not gioing to take in b- lodgers for anyone. She was not in a fit state to look after lodgers. iCr-oss-examined as to what happened on the day when she' -said her husband left her, de- fendant denicd that she threw her wedding ring in tlhe fire and went to her father's house. She did not go uintil her husband had written to the Jandlord giving up the house. He left her before' he wrote to the landlord She waited at the house un,t,il after ten o'clock and as her (husband did not come she went to her father's house. She denied that she put a padlock on tlhe cottiage door- that night or that her husband returned and could not find1 her. He knew Iwihere she was. She had to putt the padlock on ,the door for the safety of the furniture, the- next day. She put the padlock on, after consulting Inspector Pearson. Mir Gamlin: Did yo-i not further humiliate him, go to his sister's shop wtitlh his clothes and fling them in ?—-Xo. » I took heir gome rubbish he had left. He had take/n ail the best away. Did you not go On tihiree occasions and throw the things into Miiss Gregory's shop- ?—Xo, only once. Do you want hiim to live with you ?-I am afnaid of my life.. \-Vi;'l you anSlwelf my question, ? Pom|pEainant (gave the same answer three times and then she said she wanted her husband to mainlta-in her. Mr Gamlin said the magistrates would see from his cross-exiamination what his defence was The parties had Dived very unhappily On account of complltainanit'.s quarrelsomeness, gross langu- age and violence. The quarrel c-ul-n-HirTated in the wife, who had thrown his wages at her hus- band's head, throwing her wedding ring into the fi,re and voluntarily leaving the house, ing her husband she. did not want to live with him any more. He went round the town but his wife did not put in an appearance and at last, without having any supper, defendant went to his father's house. When he went to the house the next morning he found a padlock on the door and he was fastened Out of his own house. He added that complainant was now working at a flnuit shopi in Abergele and probably earning more than tlh.e' man. De-fend'anit gave evidence- in support of Mr Gamlhn's statement. He said he always gave h:,s. wife his wages and her conduct was very bad. She broke windows, used bad language and hit him in the mouth. It was quiite true that she' made refer,en-ce to the child as a b thing. Mir Roberts Jones She hit you in the mouth ? —Yes. | And did you hit her back ?-Xo. You never raised your hand, buit took it like a lamb ?-Yes. Well, I only pushed her. AIh. only pushed. George Gregory, defendant's father, said he went to see why his son htad not resumed his work one morning and found there had been a quarrel. He asked complainant why she did not get the lad's breakfast and she replied that she had no chipis and was not b- well going to get any. Iliss Gregory- gave evidence as to complainant calfllmg at her shop and throwing her husband's clothes in. On One occasion there was a cus- tomer in witness' shop. Mir Roberts Jones remarked that defendant's callOus behaviour in the box proved that he did not care two straws about has wife. The Be-nctti retired to consider the case and returning to court, The Chairman said the Bench weire satisfied that the charge of deeerition was proved and

FHntshire Standing Joint Police Committee. L\IR. PRINCE A.ND i--NIR. G. A. TAVERN ER. AVITtWDiRiAiWlAL DiEMAiNiDEID AND MADE. The quarterly meeting of the Flintshire Stand- ing Police Committee was held yesterday (Thurs- day) at Mold. Dr Humphrey Williams pre- sided, and among those present were :—iMes^rs G A Taverner, J H Ellis, T D Jones, Rhyl and R C Enyon, Rhuddlan. ICIH.ARJOE AGAINST IIR. TAVERNEK. There was quite a passage of arms when Mr J IPninee, of Connalh's Quay, made a very ser- ious charge against the htmour of the county justices present at the -last Quarter Sessions, when the conviction against the Bowling Green Hotel at 'Moid was quashed. ll:r il ".RLXiCE said the l'ocai Bench had com- -pilimenited the police on the way th-e- -v had worked up the: case, yet the conviction was quashed. It was a notorious case, and was talked aibout all :oveT the county, as gentlemen were whipped up to Quarter Sessions from far and near in order to support the appeal (Cries of "No, nb "). llr J H ELLIS (Rhyl) You cannot prove that. lit is a scandalous assertion. Mr PRiIiNiCE replied that it -was all very well for llr Ellis to tialk, but at a recent meeting they had had words because he ('Mr Prince) sai,d that policemen complained that if they took a ipu;bliic-'hous-e case to the Courts they were snulbbed by the magistrates. MT J tH .ELLIS objected to Mr Prince bringing in so much Ibias. He should be called upon to prove that magistrates were whipped up to Quarter Sessions to support an appeal. Mr IREiCE said he' was justified in making the rema.rk, as in the Bowling Green case there was a clear instance of the police being snubbed. (Mr ELLIS: The lna-gistrate>s did complain t'o the' police. Mr (PfRINGE: Tif you iwald listen, to me, you will know alil about it. ,[r Taverner came over from iRhyl to support this appeal. Mr iG A TA/VERiNIER I must call upon Mr Prince to withdraw tfhat statement. It was purely iby accident that I was at the Quarter Sessions. I object ito the'remarks of llr Prince. He saiys I was whipped up from Rhyl to support the appeal. I was summoned like all Other justices, and I did .not notice the case- on the agenda until I came to Mold. Mr PRINlOE I do not say that you weTe whipped up. I say Irou came o-ver from Rihyl to support the appeal. (M.r TAiVERiNELR How do you know I sup. ported the- appeal ? Ifr I-RINCE I know very well. There were four supported it, and two were for convicting, and you were not one of the two. Mr "RAiVEfRNER You are perfectly wrong. Mr J H ELLIS He should prove it. iMr TAVEIRINER It is a great untruth to say jt. Mr P-EiN'NAN.T said he felt that as Chairman of the' Quarter 'Se'ssions he was really respon- sible for tthe appeal being dismissed. He felt ,that there was a doubt in the case, and was bound as a jiustice to give the defendants the benefit of it. The police worked up the case 'up well, but he could not conscientiously con. net when a do-uibt was pre-sent. He felt that the justices at Quarter Sessions, who spent se- veral hours in hearing the case, were better able to judge of it than (Mr Prince, who only read the newspaper reports, and could do that in a few minutes. Mr J IH ELLIS characterised Mr Prince's charge as 'being of the most reckless character, and without a word of protnf he alleged that magistrates were whipped up to .support a li- censed house. Such -charge's were false and ungentlemanly, and he. contended there was also no proof that the police were snubbed. Mr G A TAiVEiRiNE-R said he would insist up- on Mr iPrince withdrawing the charge that he had been brought over from Rhyl to support the appeal. It we,s a reflection on his honour as a gentleman and as a justice. It was absurd to say that he would act in ariv such manner. As tihe: Chairman of the. Quarter Sessions had said, (the1 justices present acted in a fair and

ask Churchmen and Nonconformists alike to study this question in the light of principle. In spite of anI the Shortcomings of her chil- dren, the Church in this country has been to Wales the mother of her spiritual life. The noblest service and the most invincible defence that we can offer i.s the setting forth in character of the creetd we profess. When we are tempted to be anxious and disheartened let us take courage from the past. A quaint writer once said that we may say of the Church as we may say of a rock—nothing more quiet because it is never stirred, and yet nothing mOre unquiet because it is ever assaulted; nothing more peaceable because it is established upon a rock, and yet nothing more unpeaceable because that rock is in the midst of seas, winds, enetnie*, persecutions (Applause).
of matters, but Britnall delfended stubbornly for the hom-ieters. The visitors resorted to the one back game, one of the visiting defence being hurt. Half-time—Wigan Town, 1 Chester, 1. The game in the second half left nothing to be desired, each .team showing excellent football. There was no further scoring. 00000 CRiEWE ALEXANDRA v. TRAXMERE. This Combination match was played at the Alexandra Park on Saturday, before about 500 spectators. Tranmere won the toss, and Boyd was soon in evidence. Uninteresting play for fully twenty minutes, when Cope, taking a pass from Eden, (beat Ro.berts'on with a low shot. Tranmere took up th-e attack, and the Crewe halves experienced an anxious time. The homesters found the net again, but te.fore the finish the Rlovers rallied and reduced the margin. The final result read—Crewe, 2; Tranmere, 1. 00000 W'RiEXHAM v. WHITCHURCH. These teams met in an English cup-tie on the Wrexham Racecours.e on Saturday, before 1,400 spectators. The- start was disastrous for Wrexham, their best forward being badly in- jured through collision. A few minutes later Smith -had 'Whitchurch's goaol at his mercy, but he lifted too high. Wrexham returned to the attack, an'd from a nice pass lStockton received and centred beautifully, Griffiths meeting the •leather and banging it into the net. Later Whitchurch pressed, and when a goal seemed imminent Hesketh averted disaster by giving s corner. Hughes, the Wrexham right back, cleverly frustrated further efforts bv the vi-sitors. An exultant cheer at this stage greeted the re- appearance of lEytheway. Llew Davies judic- iously conceded Whitc-hurch another corner, which was got away. A similar advantage1 was granted Wrexham, and shortly afterwards the. Whitchurch custodian had half a dozen shots to Jlegctiate. Aifter a brief repulse Wrexham pressed with determination, and, after a stern struggle in the goalmouth, Bytheway received from Smith, and scored a second goal with a quick shot. Then Whitchurch were hostile, and Coventry brought off a good save. Five minutes before the interval By the way registered another goal with a brilliant shot. The visitors attacked, and forced a fruitless corner. l-Vtlf- time—Wrexham, 3 Whitchurch, nil. In the last half Whitchurch scored two goals, making the final score—Wrexham, 3; Whitchurch, 2. 00000 THE DEFEAT OF lHYL VICTORIA. The re-played tie for the Welsh Amateur Cup between Rihyl Victoria and Alold Town took place at Mold on Saturday. As anticipated the Vies were defeated. Thev were weak in defence and unfortunate in front of goal. On the other hand Mold were awarded no less than three penalties from each of which they scored. The homesters showed marked improvement on their own ground, and were value for the four to one victory they achieved. On the losing eide D W Jones and R Hughes were' the pick. 00000 The Vies' second string entertained Denbigh at Sisson Park, a tough game ending in favour of the homesters by two goals to one. 00000 N'êxt Saturday the Vics play Holywell United away in the first round of the Flintshire Chall- enge Cup, when the following team has been selected to represent them:—'Goal, M Hughes; full backs, C Foley and T W Ellis half-backs, R Hughes, J W EKis (captain), and E Mostyn forwards, E E Hughes, D W Jon.e's, R Hughes, T Glass, and T Harrison; linesman, Mr G C. Ia s 9. The second team play Rhuddlan Con- servatives at Rhyl in .the 2nd round of the North Wales Coa&t Junior Cup. The following team will represent the Vies :—Goal, H Hughes full- backs, W Hughes and W J E.vans (captain); half-backs, W J Hughes, R Gallagher, and J Jones; forwards, A Roberts, J Hughes, E Rob- erts, J Hughes, and E Roberts; linesman, Mr E Williams. Kick-off, 3 p.m. 00000 RHYL CHURCH GUILD v. IUHDDLAX CONSERVATIVES. The above teams met at Belle Vue Athletic Grounds on Saturday, the Phoenix team having a good following. The game opened in favour of the homesters, who soon scored. The Rbuddlanites retaliated, and Mayo put the fin- ishing touch to Evans' effort. Then the' home- sters pressed, and the Rthuddlan goal had many narrow escapes. A long dropping shlot by R Jones was saved by Griffiths, but the referee pointed to the centre. Hard luck for Rhlldd- lan. The team's crossed over with the Guild leading by three goal6, to one. The opening of the second half was decidedly in favour of the- visitors, and for the first ten minutes they swarmed the citadel, R Roberts and Meredith doing excellent work 'Meredith ad.ded number two from a melee in front of the goal, and short- ly aftewards lost a glorious chance of making the scores equal. The Guild, who were grand in defence, gradually wore down their opponents, and before the end scored two more goals and won comfortably. I was rather disappointed with the visitors. They require a lot of prac- tice, and they would do well to drop a couple Or so at their old war horses. R Roberts was undoubtedly the most useful player on their side. [Meredith was the best forward, and Al- bert Barnett was fairly successful. The backs were poor, and the goalkeeper was not safe. The Guild is a well-balanced team, and quite deserved their victory. 00000 THE XOR!Tfir fWALES COAST LEAGUE GILE A XL) FIX TURE BOOK.

Mr P-RirNCE I will say that I do Jot think that there was any special whipping up in the case of >Mr Taverner, and I withdraw what I said regarding him. Mr TAVKtRXEiR I am satisfied. IIr S JONES ifiHclywell| alleged that the pol- ice in Flintshire had no earthly clhance of securing a conviction against a public-house, as it would ibe sure to be upset at the Quarter Sessions. He felt that appeals to Quarter Sessions should be abolished. IMr J II ELLIS: You would only do away with appeals in licensing cases What next Mr S JONES: If they do not Iblame the police the, do not support the con- victions at Quarter Sessions. Our veracity should 'not be' questioned. Mr J II ELLIS It is the veracity of some people that was tested (Laughter). The CIIAFRMAN then closed the discussion. DIRIUEN!KE.N TRAMPS IN THE W;ORKHOir»K Mr J PiRINCE, of Connah's Quay, alleged that tramps often went to the Holywel'l Work- house in a state of drunkenness. He did not believe that they were drunk when -they got a el ticket at the Police Station, but they got drunk ou the way to the Workhouse. Out of 63,510 tramps in North Wales in one year 4,416 passed through Holywell (Workhouse. He felt that the Flintshire police should eecure morp. convic- tions of tramps. The Chief Constable said That Flintshire coun- try people were too kindjhearted. They re- lieved the tramps instead of telling the police. He w'ou'I-d do all he could to check the tramp nuisance. The matter was left in the hands of the Chief Constaible. THE CIITEF CONSTABLE'S REPORT.

In answer to your advertisement, I have received 6 tenders for police clothing ifor the A-ear 1907. These have been opened and the samples of materials inspec. ted by your sub-coimm-ittee.
