THE London elections have materially affected the attendance at the Welsh Club during the past fortnight. As two or three of the most popular members are candidates for municipal honours their friends have rallied to their support, and leisure time is spent in evening canvass. The chief attrac- tion at the club these nights is the billiard tournament for the Pritchard Jones Silver Cup. THE Welsh Church Commission is be- coming somewhat entertaining. One day Lord Justice Williams states that they are unanimous, while at the next sitting he appears to be at loggerheads with all the other Commissioners.

THE King's messenger, the late Mr. Arthur Herbert, who was lost with the ill- fated "Berlin," came from the family of Herberts of Montgomeryshire. His father is Mr. C. Herbert, of Wellington, Salop. He became King's messenger in 1891, and since that date has carried despatches to all parts of the world. THE Liberals suffered a severe defeat at Brigg last Tuesday. The Conservative candidate was returned by 116 votes, whereas at the last election the Liberal had 1,726 majority. Captain Guest, who was a carpet bagger was the Liberal nominee. THE funeral of Mr. Woodham Davies-son of Mr. Alfred Davies, J.P., Hampstead-who was one of the ill-fated passengers in the Berlin," took place at Hampstead Ceme- tery on Tuesday last. The Rev. H. E. Bennett, pastor, conducted the service, assisted by the Revs. Dr. Clifford and Dr. Horton.
