St. Asaph Board of Guardians. MANY APPLICANTS FOR OUT RELIEF. VISIT TO CONWAY COTTAGE HOMES PROPOSED. The fortnightly meeting of the above Board was held on Friday, Mr. J. Frimston, J.P. (PyJ) presiding, with Mr. Wm. Jones in the vice-chair. There were also present Messrs. J. Roberts, T. Evans, J. Pierce, John Jones, J. R. Ellis, J. Blackburn Wil- liams, Abergelo; J. T Parry, Robert Davies. Bettws W. S. Roberts, Bodfari Thos. Hughes, lonnet Jones, Bylchau; Owen Rees, Cdn; Edwin Morgan, Tre- meirchion R. A. Williams, Wm. Williams, Henllan Kev. Canon Roberts, Unddu ls; Messrs. T. U. Jones, Wm. Owen, LLanfair D. Roberts, Llansannan; T. Pennant Wil- liams, Prestatyn; Llew. B. Evans, Rhudd. lan; S. Perks, G F. Gunner, J. Roberts Jones, Hugh Edwards, T. Batho, Mrs. Mary Jones, Rhyl; Messrs. J. Lothian, St. Asaph; J. D. Jones, St. George; John Morris, Trelnml; and the officials. THE HOUSE. It was reported that there were in the Workhouse that day 160 inmates, a decrease of 4 as comoaied with, the corresponding period last year. The number of vagrants relieved during the two weeks was 174—the same number as en the previous Board day. The Master applied for and was allowed the usual extra provisions, &c., for the Workhouse Christmas Treat, the list in- cluding 24 dozen mineral waters, tobacco, snuff, pipes, oranges and sweets. It was announced that Mr. Woodward, of BrynLiu, Mclidcn, had sent his customary £1 is. towards the Christmas festivities of the inmates, ard a vote of thanks was passed to him. THE PROBLEM OF UNEMPLOYMENT. Several men were brought before the Board to explain why they had "ome into the Workhouse, and n one base it was stated that a man was there with his wife and six children. The members questicned the men as to their ability to earn their own living, but the reply from each one was that ther was no work to be obtained. In the case of the man with the family, it was explained that his home had been sold up for rent. Mr. LIew. B. E\ans said :t would be far better for the Board to allow a little out- relief than to keep a family in the Work- house, and while he w as aware that no one would let the man a house whilst he was out of work, he questioned whether the Board could r.ot pay the rent. The Clerk said it was illegal to do so. Mr. Evans replied that they could give an order on a grocer for food, why could tl'ey not give an order on a landlord for rent, so that the family could have shelter intil the father found work. The Chairman said he was afraid it could not be done, but the Board decided to leave the matter with the relieving officer and Mr. Evans, to relieve the man and his family for a few weeks until he obtained work. In another case the Board decided that a man should take his di charge, but he pleaded that he could not get a. living. When asked why he did not sell fish, as formerly, the man replied that in the winter people did not buy so much fish, they went in more for pork. (Laughter.) On its being decided to tell the man to go, one member urged that he had a wood- en leg, and so could not do the same as other men. Mr. John Roberts But a wooden leg does not stop him from drinking. (Laugh- ter.) It the case of two men it was stated that a member of the Board had found them work, and that they would take their dis- charge on Monday. Mr. Hughes suggested that inasmuch as the Abergele Guardians had found work for two of the men the Rhyl Guardians should find work for others. Mr. Llew. Evans: I find lodgings for many of them at my brickworks many a night. (Laughter.) I do my share. (Laughter.) THE CARE OF CHILDREN. It was stated that the action of the Board in taking charge of certain children was amply justified by the results attained. The children had been found excellent places, and they were now very happy. TEDDY'S TRIBUTE. Reference was made to the case of the lad Teddy Evans, who recently died and left £2 3s. to the Board towards defraying the cost of his maintenance in the Work- house. The Board had decided, that while fully appreciating what had been done, they felt it better to hand the money over to the dceased lad's brother, who is an orphan and had been put out to service by the Board. This lad now appeared to thank the Board for their kindness, and stated that he intended putting the money ir. the bank. The Clerk said the only question was as to who should take charge of the bank book. He had questioned the lad as to what he had ■ aved during the time he had been in service, and found that he had drawn out what he had saved and spent it. The lad explained that when his mother died he had drawn the few shillings he had saved and bought clothes. Mr. Lothian considered thit the boy's employer was the most fitting person to take charge of the lad's bank book. This was agreed to, the Chairman advis- ing the lad 10 save all the money he could. The example set to all boys by the deceased was a noble one, as although he earned very little money he had in a short time saved £2 3s. with one object in view —to repay those who had cared for him when he could not care for himself. A FREAK OF NATURE. The Board discussed the case of a child who was stated to be in an extraordinary condition, and gave instructions to their officers to attend to her. She was said to be 15 years of age, but was born without bones, and at the present time only measured 36 inches, and weighed 30 lbs. SUGGESTED ALTERATIONS IN THE WORKHOUSE. Mr. Bait ho, on behalf of the House Com- mittee, rclel red to the recent report of the Local Governetment Board Inspector, who urged that as the accommodation in the Workhouse was getting very limited that the Board should consider the question of entirely removing all the children. They should either take them into cottage homes, or board them out. The Committee reo commended that a deputation consisting of Miss Gee, the Chairman, Canon Roberts, Mr. J. R. Ellis and himself should visit the cottage homes of the Conway Unicn and report fully to the Board on the same. It was considered that the Conway Homes were modern, and no doubt they would learn something there. The Local Govern- ment Board Inspector also reported against the present tramp accommodation, and something would have to be done in that matter. It was also suggested that in order to provide adequate means of exit from one building in case of fire an outside staircase should be provided, and the Master had been asked to prepare an estimate for the work. The Committee had seen to the question of fixing the fireguards in the where they were .required. He moved the adoption of the r-oport. Mr. Davies seconded. Mr. John Roberts questioned whether there was any need for the deputation to visit the Conway Cottage Homes, seeing that they had iess children in the Work- house. The Chairman replied that it was true they had less children than twelve months ago, but they had far too little accommoda- tion now. Mr. John Roberts asked if the deputation would pay their own expenses. Mr. Batho: We shall not charge the Board with any expenses, and we shall re- port to you. The Local Government Board are insisting on clearing the Workhouse of children. Mr. Llew. B. Evans moved that the Board pay the expenses of the deputation, seeing that they were going on the Board's business. Mr. John Roberts Oh, dear, no. They will be paupers if they accept money from the Union. The Chairman We do not want it. The report was adopted. PAUPERS AND PENSIONS. The Clerk read a lengthy letter from the Local Government Board as to the opera- tions of the Old Age Pensions Act for per- sons in receipt rf relief, and stated that it was clearly laid down that no pauper who was 70 years of age was compelled to apply for the old age pension, and that a re- fusal to apply did not debar a person from being granted relief, but if relief was granted they were debarred from receiving a pension, but medical relief to an old age pensioner did not disqualify. Mr. Grims- ley added that no doubt many old people would prefer to remain in the Workhouse and to be well cared for than to go out and live on 5s. per week even with friends. The Relieving Officers were call-d in, and the provisions of the Act explained to them. Mr. Jones (the Denbigh Relieving Officer) asked what he should do in the case of paupers who could not find money to ob- tain their birth or baptismal certificates. The Clerk said the Registrar General was ready to help in such cases. Mr. John Roberts said he was given to understand that jthe Vicar of Llannefydd had given certificates free of charge where asked to do so (Hear, hear.) Canon Roberts I think that is the rule with all clergymen. I always give the certificate in ruch cases. (Hear, hear.)
St. Asaph (Denbigh) Rural District Council. LLANDDULAS WATER SUPPLY— WAIT AND SEE. :.1r. J. D. Jones presided at the monthly meeting ol this Council on Friday, and Mr. Wm. Jones occupied the vice-chair. VOTE OF SYMPATHY. A vote of sympathy with Mr. Salisbury (Llannefydd) in his illness was unanimously passed. ALLEGED HEAVY TRAFFIC ON ROADS. The Council discussed the question of their claim against a mining company in the Abergele and Llanddulas district for alleged heavy traffic on the roads, and Mr. Davies said that while he had been against being too hard on an industry which was to benefit he district, he considered that they should now press their claim, espec- ially as the heavy traffic was continuing, and the Surveyor had put down 400 yards of stone and wanted another 200 yards for the roads. It was decided that the Clerk should at once take the matter in hand. WATER SUPPLY TO RHYDYFOEL. WAIT AND SEE." The Surveyor (Mr. Evans) stated that he had taken guagings at Nant Fawr springs, and also at the River Dulas with a view to ascertaining ,the best means of supplying Rhydyxoel with water. He found that" for two years the yield from Nant Fawr .was 12,GGO gallons per day, and from the River Dulas 70,000 gallons in a like penod. The estimated requirements were 6,000 per day, and while the Nant Fawr springs were high enough for the water to flow by gravitation there was also sufficient water in the River Dulas to supply the district .and to work the pumps. Both supplies had been anal- ysed, and found to be good, but the wafer from the river would have to be taken above the village of Llanddulas. The Clerk pointed out that many years ago when the question was raised of "sup- plying Llanddulas with water the Rural Sanitary Authority insisted rpon the village taking the supply from Rhyl, but the villagers protested and refused to pay the water rate, contending that the river water was good. The Authority considered it was liable to pollution, and summoned ten persons for not paying the rate. The Authority won the day, although Mr. Mark Cross was very angry over it. The Nant Fawr supply would save the cost of pump- ing. .\1: John Jones did not think it would be possible to obtain sufficient water from Nant Fawr without interfering with the supply to farms. The Surveyor replied that the farmers would be supplied from the pipes which would be laid. Mr. Davies considered that they were causing unneccessary alarm. He knew as much, about the affair as anyone, although he did not wish to speak for the Llanddulas people. At the present time they were getting for the district plenty of water from Cwymp, and they had to realise the fact that either Llanddulas would have to lay a new main from either Abergele or Glas- coed, or they would have to obtain a sup- ply of water from elsewhere. It was sug- gested that the people of Rhydyfoel and the district where he lived should co-oper- ate with Llanddulas in obtaining a supply of water other than from the Rhyl supply. At the present time Llanddulas paid Rhyl about per annum, and a new scheme to supply the whole district could be ob- tained for about so that it would be better to defer the matter in order that the scheme could, be gone into. The Chairman said it was a difficult matter to defer2 as it had been before the Council for a very long time. Canon Roberts said the matter was re- ferred to in the Medical Officer of Health's report, and the Local Government Board were pressing that something should be done. Mr. Davies: And who presses it on the Local Government Board? Mr. Bennet Jones proposed that the matter be deferred. Mr. Davies said it was necessary to have more water at Llanddulas, as there was a sewerage scheme there. It was then decided to defer the matter. The Clerk I do not know w<hat the Local Government Board will say. We have deferred it for two years now. Mr. J. Roberts: Wait and see. (Laugh- ter.) LLANDDULAS ROADS. A discussion arose as to the completion of the sewerage works at Llanddulas, and Canon Roberts said the people had cause for complaint that the roads were left in a very bad condition. He felt that the matter should be attended to at once, and he was sorry to see people walking through so much mud. He did not think that the people who went to Beulah Chapel next Sunday would be in a pleasant state of mind after wading through so much mud. Mr. John Roberts If anyone deserve good roads the Methodists do. (Laughter.) The Surveyor was directed to take the matter in hand at once with the con- tractors. THE ISOLATION HOSPITAL QUESTION. The Council considered the question of the proposed erection of an isolation hospital, and agreed to the recommendation of the Joint Hospital Committee that a building be erected at a cost not exceeding £800. The matter will now come before the St. Asaph (Flint) Rural District Coun- cil.
Temperance Arithmetic. To the Editor of THE WEEKLY NEWS. Sir,—Grant me leave to ask the scholars in our day schools to make out the amount paid by the Colwyn Bay and Colwyn dis- trict of the National Drink Bill for last yoir. The population of the United King- dom is reckoned at 43,657,121, who are re- sponsible for a bill of £155,162,485 for drink. For how much of that sum are the 13,000 people who live in Colwyn Bay and Colwya responsible? The readers of the Weekly News will be glad to know the answer next week.—I am, &c., MATHEMATICS.
Llanrwst Urban District Council. WORK FOR THE UNEMPLOYED. THE FIGHT AGAINST CONSUMPTION. The monthly meeting of this Council was held on Friday evening, Mr. H. J. W. Watling .presiding. There were also pre- sent Messrs. Wm. Hughes, W. J. Williams, Edward Mills, John Williams, W. Jones, Griffith Jones, D. J. Williams, Albert Hughes, William Davies, and Dr. Huw Williams; with the Clerk (Mr. T. Latimer Jones), the Surveyor (Mr. George Wynne), and 'the Collector (Mr. E. M. Jones). FINANCE. The Collector reported having collected for the month £117 12s. 8d.. The Finance Committee reported having Examined ac- counts amounting to £33 9S. 3d., which they recommended should be paid. There was a balance at the bank of £215 2s. nd., leaving an available (balance of 13s. 8d The Clerk reported that having re- ceived a cheque from the County Treasurer for J., 187 ios., being half the contract for main rotds, and another for 18s. 3d. being the 4-11th part of repayment of loan and interest re Crown Corner, by the receipt of which their accounts were once more placed on the right side. PULMOXARY TUBERCULOSIS. The Inspector reported that he had gone through the medical officer's informa- tion and instruction re the above, and he strongly recommended that the same be re- ferred to the Sanitary Committee, and the Inspector's recommendation was adopted. FELIX ISA' WATER SUPPLY. The Surveyor reported that he had scour- ed the pipes at Felin Isa' Cottages, and found a little sediment which after a good scouring became fairly clear. He was of opinion that if the pipes were scoured weekly there would be no cause for com- plaint. The Surveyor v'as instructed to have them scoured each week and report at the next meeting. MACADAM. The Surveyor asked for an order for the purchase of 20 or 30 tons of ij inch mac- adam, also about 150 tons unbroken stone, all from Mr. R. O. Roberts' quarry at Pantycarw, the latter to be placed on the Llangernyw road and be broken by the town's unemployed at 3s. per ton. He 'further applied fbtr leave to purchase ajt a cheap rate when opportunity offered it- self odd lots of stone. The three applica- tions were granted. FIRE BRIGADE. Mr. Albert Hughes (Chairman of the Fire Brigade Committee) reported that the Conm had mt, recommended that Mr. Wm. Hughes be appointed lieutenant. On the motion of Mr. D. J. Willilams, seconded by Mr. W. J. Williams, an am- endment was moved and carried that two lieutenants be appointed, namely, Mr. John Hughes and Mr. Wm. Hughes, the senior to be that from length of service to the Brigade. I.TOUTING INSPECTOR. The Lighting Committee Recommended that no paid lighting inspector be appoint- ed, but that the Surveyor, assisted by members of the Council, should report up- on the state of the lamps, Arc. After a short discussion Mr. Albert Hughes was appointed to do the work voluntarily for a period. WELSH NATIONAL MEMORIAL. Mr. Albert Hughes reported that he and Mr. Griffith Jones had visited the meeting held at Denbigh, where several recom- mendations were adopted, which included a recommendation that each district should (take up tthe matter. It was resolved to leave the same to the Chairman to con- vene a town's meeting early in the new year.
-4- The Catholic Mission at Llanrwst. A COLWYN BAY MARTYR. The Rev. Father Trebacl, O.M.I., who is directing the Cambro-Breton Mission at Llanrwst, is Bringing out a very readable parish magazine, which is called The Messenger of the Catholic Church." Un- like so many magazines of the kind, it is an entirely "home" production, and well printed throughout. The articles, some in English and others in Welsh, deal with ques- tions of great moment in a popular and understandable way, and no doubt are well designed to achieve the purpose in view. Incidentally, many others besides Catho- lics will be interested in an article on "Some Welsh Martyrs which appears in the issue of November 25th. The martyr whose life is there outlined is William Davies, a Welsh priest of the sixteenth century, who suffered much for his faith. The article commences thus:— Vr oedd William Davies, yn ol awdur- dod Yepez, yn Gymro, genedigol o Gaer- narlon; eithr, yn ol Esgob Chalcedon, ganwyd ef yng Nghroes Honorius, ger Colwyn Bay, swydd Dinbych—ac nid yn y Groes, ger Dinbych, fel y tybia rhai. It will be seen that there is a dispute as to the birthplace of the saint. One authority says it was Groes, near Denbigh, others that it was Groes Honorius," near Colwyn Bay. The latter Groes is now known as "Groes yr Eirias." Was it originally Groes Hon- orius ? We should very much like to hear from our numerous antiquarian readers on this interesting subject. GWYTHERIN AND ST. WINEFREDE. What has become of Father Trebaol's pro- posal of an annual pilgrimage to that upland village of Gwytherin in honour of St. Wene- frede? According to some historians, the small church at Gwytherin had the hon- our of becoming a place of interment for the precious remains of St. Winefrede after her decollation and revivification. On her reputed second death she was buried in this secluded spot. whither she had some time previously retired for devotional pur- poses, under strong and mental induce- ment. On the decease of Sj. Beuno, she is said to have been warned by a visionary voice to visit St. Deifer, then resident at Bodfari, <or spiritual information, by whom she was directed to St. Sadwrn, at Hen- llan who further advised her to seek an asylum with St. Elerius at Gwytherin. Having adopted the last recommenda- tion, she repaired to this spot, where, it is stated, then existed a convent of nuns, and having received the veil from the hands of the local saint, on the demise of Theonia, she was elected by the sisterhood Lady Abbess. In this silent retreat the corpse was per. mitted for centuries to rest in peace, but its miraculous powers magnifying with in- creasing darkness, and a monk of Shrews- bury having witnessed its amazing beneficial effects, the abbot of the Benedictine house there, in the reign of Henry the First, sens- ible what an acquisition of derivable sanct- ity and consequent power it would give to the fraternity, determined to have it con- veyed to his reliquary, and for the purpose obtained a royal mandate of removal. But the possessors, alike aware of the invaluable nature of the treasure, demurred against the King, for a time refused to re- sign the deposit, which was at length got out of their hands by detestable strata- gems.
"Viscount Criccieth." LORD MOSTYN'S JOKE. Speaking at a Conservative meeting at Rhuddlan, Lord Mostyn said that Mr. Lloyd George was fond of listening to the debates in the House of Lords, and they might see him there one day as Viscount Criccieth. (Applause.)
In the day of Charles II. there was a Mint at Rhuddlan, one of the four Welsh towns privileged to strike coins.
Colwyn Bay Police Court. A DOCTOR'S STRANGE ATTITUDE. Mr. J. Watkin Lumley presided over the Colwyn Bay Police Court on Saturday, when the following Justices were present: Messrs David Gamble, T. J. Willliams, Hammers- ley Heenan, Joseph Dicken, J. Berth Jones, and George Bevan; together with the act- ing Clerk, Mr. James Poiter. TEMPORARY TRANSFER OF A LICENCE. Mr. Crabbe made an application to the Bench regarding the licence of the Rhos Abbey Hotel. He stated that Mrs. Meier, the holder of the licence, had become bank- rupt, and the estate was 'n the hands of tiustees. His application was that a tem- porary transfer of the licence be granted to John Stainton, who had been employed in the hotel for a number of years and who had practically the charge of the bars in the hotel. The application was granted. WARRANT GRANTED FOR A DOCTOR'S ATTENDANCE. Mr. Crabbe, who appeared for the appli- cant in a certain affiliation case, which was to have Seen heard at a previous court, re- ferred to the absence of a necessary wit- ness, Dr. Lloyd Owen, who was in South Wales, and who had been given conduct money to attend, but who did not do so. The witness had returned the conduct money stating that he could not attend with- out his services being considered. Mr. Crabbe renlied that he must attend court and make an application for his expenses at that time. After consultation the chairman stated that there had been a certain amount of con- tempt of court by Dr. Lloyd Owen, and a warrant would be issued for his. attendance at the next ordinary Police Court in Col- wyn Bay. A man was seen advancing towards the clerk, and stated I am Dr. Owen's brother, and wished to say something." Mr. Crabbe objected to the informality of such a proceeding, and the incident closed. ALLEGED CRUELTY TO A HORSE. Peter Hughes, 17, Agnes-road, Colwyn Hay, carter, and Owen Roberts, carrier's conti actor, Station-road, Colwyn Bay, were summoned by Inspector Fleming, of the R.S.P.C.A for alleged cruelty to a horse. The former was charged with working, and the latter with causing to be worked the horse in question on the 5th November. Mr. James Marks appeared for the pro- secution and Mr. E. A. Crabbe defended. The Inspector stated that he saw the de- fendant Peter Hughes driving a bay geld- ing attached to a cart on the day in ques- tion. There was a load of bricks in the cart, and the horse was very lame. Witness stopped the defendant and examined the animal and found it to be suffering from such lameness that it was unfit for work. Sergeant Thomas gave evidence as to lameness, and Mr. C. A. Hutton, veterinary surgeon, of Llandudno, gave evidence as to the injured foot. In reply to Mr. Crabbe as to whether wit- ness knew the said horse had won a prize in the last Colwyn Bay May Day proces- sion, he said, 1: I have seen many lame horses take prizes in a May Day,- proces- sion." (Laughter.) Owen Roberts gave evidence, and stated that the horse was fit for work, but in order to save further annoyance in regard to the animal he sold it a few days after he had been speaking with the Inspector for £5, although he gave ^45 for it when he pur- chased it. Evidence having been given by Peter Hughes and T. O. Davies, the Bench de- cided to convict by a majority in both cases. Peter Hughes was fined 5s. and costs, and Owen Roberts 20s. and costs. Wm. Westbury and Wm. Rowland Jones, of Glan Conway, were charged with cruelty to a horse, on the 16th November by travel- ling it in an unfit state. Inspector Fleming, R.S.P.C.A., prosecut- ed, and Mr. E. Davies-Jones, Llanrwst, de- fended. Sophia C. Shewell, of Colwyn Bay, stated that she saw the defendant Westbury on the day in question taking three horses towards Colwyn. The middle horse was in a very emaciated condition, and was lame on the forelegs. It staggered now and again, and would not have been able to walk, only that it was between the two others. After hearing evidence, the Bench, decided by a majority to convict. Westbury was fined 2s. 6d. and costs and Jones 10s. and costs, including veterinary surgeon's fee.

EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS IN THE TREATMENT OF OBESITY. Our corpulent readers will be glad to learn how to positively lose 2 stone in about a month with the greatest possible benefit in health, stength and muscle by a compara- tively new system It is a singular para- dox that the patient, returning quickly to a healthy state with increased activity of brain, digestive and other organs naturally requires more food than hitherto, yet not- withstanding this he absolutely loses in wieight one to )two pounds daily, as the weighing machine will prove. Thus there is no suggestion of starvation. It is' an ab- solute success, and the author, who has de- voted years of study to the subject, abso- lutely guarantees a noticeable reduction within 24 hours of commencing the treat- ment. This is different with other ailments, for the p-itient in some cases may go for weeks without being able to test whether the Physician has rightly treated him, and may have derived no real or apparent improve- ment in health. Here, we repeat, the author guarantees it in 24 hours, the scale to be the unerring judge. The treatment aims at the actual root of the complaint, so that the superfluous fat does not return when discontinuing the treatment. It is perfectly harmless. We advise our readers to call the attention of stout frends to this because, sincerely, we think they ought to know. For their information we may "ay that on send- ing cost of postage (two pence) a re-print of press notices from some hundreds of Medi- cal and other journals (British and foreign), and other interesting particulars, including the recipe," can be had from a Mr. F. C. Russell, VVoburn House, Store-street, Bed- ford-square, London, W.C. |
The Carnarvon Boroughs Election. INTERRUPTIONS AT CONWAY. On Thursday night the final Conservative meeting in Conway was held in the Town Hall, presided over by Mr. E. W. Johnson, Llandudno. He was supported on the plat- form by the candidate, Mr. Austin Jones, and several otrer ladies and gentleman. Mr. Austin Jones, who was the first to speak, was accorded a hearty reception by a crowded audience, but at the outset it was seen that there were a large number of the opposition at the back of the Hall. The speaker was given an excellent hear- ing, and a few interruptions were taken in good part. When he mentioned Mr. W. H. Lever as being a free trader, there was cheering, and the candidate remarked, Cheer away, you will not be able to cheer n:i ch longer. There was now a dis- turbance in the body of the hall, owing to the action, it is alleged, of one of the stew. ards. The police, however, soon quelled the disturbance, but the audience commenc- ed singing Sospan bach." Afterwards the speaker referred to the action of Germany in allowing English-caught herrings to enter Germany without a tariff because the Ger- mans could not catch sufficient for their con- sumption The opposition took up the her- ring question, and caused considerable am- usement throughout the meeting. Conclud- ing, the speaker said he was obliged for the good hearing The principles of the Union- ist party, which were great principles, in- cluded the upholding of the constitution of the country and the maintenance of the great Empire. (Loud cheers.) When the Chairman got up to speak there was a faint singing of Sospan bach," which became louder on the invitation of the chairman. When quietness was restored, Mr. Johnson said he had never been on a pol- itical platform in his life, and his reason for coming out now was that he was sick of party and full of State, and he felt that now was the time for every moderate man to come out of his shell. He had studied the question, and he had chosen to stand by the moderates. (Loud applause.) The world did not centre around Conway- (laugiiter),—nor around the Carnanon bor- oughs, nor even the radiant head of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. At this point there was some cheering. Why do few people d-jeer when some Radical sentiment is expressed? asked Mr. Johnson. It was because they did not know. Because John Jones cheers William Thomas would do the .1 same. (A voice More insults.") This was the time when it was necessary to face the music. (A voice Do away with the House of Lords.") There was one great principle which they all understood. (A voice: Herrings.") Why should Wales support Home Rule for Ireland. (A voice Becanse they want it.") Where they go- ing to give everything they wanted? (A voice: Give them everything but her- rings.") The audience joined in crying her- rings, and the Chairman asked whether they had not got a new joke. Let them try mus- sels. In Wales they must do their best. (A chorus of voices: "For Lloyd George.") The Chairman at this juncture challenged anyone to say what Mr. Lloyd George had done for the working man, and the opposi- tion ag^in commenced their favourite song. Continuing, he said that Mr. Lloyd George had stated that but for Lord Pen- rhyn, Lorn Lcnyon and others there would not be a contest in the Boroughs. He (the Chairman) offered the Constitutional party that if nobody else would stand at this elec- tion he would do so himself. (Loud cheers.) The opposition agvn had a scrg, and the chairman sat down with the remark, "I have had enough." At this point a man from the body of the hall worked his way through the audience and on to the platform, and accepted the challenge of the chairman, and mentioned s^veia1. bills brought in by the Chancellor which were beneficial to the working man. Mr. Harold Jaeger, Birkenhead, was the next speaker, iand he said that he came with a message of encouragement to the Union- ists of that division. (A voice: It's no use.") He saw the beginning of a change in \vales. (A voice Good old Radnor.") He questioned the consistency and the sin- ceiity of Mr. Lloyd George. (Hooting.) When he heard the results from Birming- ham at the last election he said, I don't believe that Birmingham voted for Free Trade or Promotion (Voice: No, it was for Joe Chamberlain ") Mr. Lucas, an Irish gentleman, was also greeted with Sospan bach." He gave a lengthy exposition on Irish questions. Mi. R. S. Cliamberlain rose to (propose a vote of tanks to the chairman. He intended speaking a few words, but the opposition would not allow him to proceed, and he remarked, Let it be noted by the Press that a Conway audience won't listen to one of their own people." Mr. James Porter seconded the proposi- tion, and he remarked that he thanked the audience for carrying it with musical hon- ours. There was a demonstation outside the hall. and a hrge crowd followed the speakes to the Castle Hotel, where there was con- siderable hooting, but the police kept everything clear.

Pauperism and its Cost. INTERESTING STATISTICS. The Local Government Board on Friday night issued, as a Parliamentary White- paper, a comparative statement of pauper- ism and cost of the relief of poor in certain years from 1848-9 to 1909-10. In 1849 there were certain places in resrpect of which no returns of pauperism were received, but it is estimated that in that year the mean ntmber of paupers of all classes (including lunatics in county and borough asylums, registered hospitaLs and licensed houses) was 1,088,659, giving a ratio of 62.7 per 1,000 of the population. In 1860 the irean number was estimated at 844,633, a ratio of 42.9 per 1,000; and in 1870 the estimate was 1,032,800, with a ratio of 46. Other years given are as under:- Year.
