The Late Mr. James Sugden, I Rhos-on-Sea. CLOSE OF A FINE CAREER. In our last issue we recorded the death, on December 12th, of Mr. James'Sugden, of Rhos-on-Sea, at the age of 78 years. Mr. Sugden was for twenty-three years Superin- tendent and two years President of the Pendleton Ragged School. Ellor-street. The Sal ford Reporter says :— lr. Sugden was the second son of Mr. Robert Sugden, well known in connection with the Pendleton Congregational Church. The eldest sun Mr. John Sugden, who was engaged in philanthropic work, and was Superintendent of what was at that trine known as the John street Ilpli and People's Institute. Mr. lames Sugden became a Wcslevan, and was connected with the Brunswick Chapel, Broad-street., and was, with his family, instrumental in the building of the chape! on the present site. His main interest, however, lay in the Pendleton Ragged School, with which he became con- nected in its early career other members of the family have been connected with it. He was for twenty-three years Superintendent and two years President. In this work he never spared himself. In the winter months, October to March, the work was very oner- ous he was very often at the school five nights a week. He used to visit the sick, more particularly amongst the children, but not even confined to them. In this connec- tion he would relate the story of a gipsy woman whom he visited, and of the husband afterwards calling at his residence and, pre- sumably out of gratitude, leaving in his ab- sence a set of copper pans. In the later years Mr. William Hardcastle, of Bolton-road, Pendleton, was associated with him in the superintendentship. Mr. Sugden was very systematic in his habits, and in his work at the school he made a point of being ten minutes in advance of the opening of the Sun- day evening service. He saw a great im- provement in the habits of the people. It was no uncommon thing at one time for a brickbat to be picked up which had been hurled at the officers, and he has come into the school to find an officer on the floor with roughs sitting on him. In the earlier days the functions of the Ragged School were also in the education of the young. Mr. Sugden took an interest in and worked for the cause of the North in the '\merican Civil War for the abolition of slavery, and was in great demand as a speaker and lecturer on the sub- ject. He was a Liberal, but took no part in politics he held that by avoiding this and municipal honours which he was asked to ac- cept, that he was consulting the best inte- rests (;f the Ragged School. The great ex- tent of his business career was at Messrs. Rvlands & Sons, Limited, and for a consider- able part of the thirty-nine years of his con- nection with the firm he was head of the Shipping Department. Mr. Sugden resided at Barr Hill, Pendleton, for twenty years, and retired to Colwyn Bay in 1892, where for some years previously he had a house. On his retirement a handsome presentation was bv tn" Directors of Messrs. Rylands & Sons, a t st ii, I was also presented to him on behalf of the officers and teachers of the Pendleton Ragged School. He had been in indifferent health, for some three or four years. He leaves a widow, one son and four daughters. The funeral took place at the Salford Ceme- tery, Weaste, on Thursda" afternoon, when a small company of sympathisers and friends of the Pendleton Ragged School assembled near the Nonconformist Chapel shortly after 1 o'clock, the interment taking place at 1.30. The remains were placed in a pannelled oak upholstered shell, the plate containing the inscription I- James Sugden, Died December 12th, 1910 Aged 78 years. A number of members of the family travel led by train from Colwvn Bay, arriving at Exchange Station a few minutes before 1 o'clock. The body was conveyed in a special funeral carriage on the London & North- Western Railway, Mr. Dicken (Messrs. J. Dicken & Sons, Cohvyn Bay) having charge of the arrangements at Colwyn Bav and en route. Mr. Coop met the cortege with a hearse drawn by two horses, and four funeral carriages. The coffin was covered with a beautiful purple cloth, and although there was a request for No flowers," several wreaths were sent. The procession pro- ceeded to the Cemetery. The following is a list of the mourners :—First coach Mr. Herbert B. Sugden (son), Miss C. S. Sugden (daughter), Mrs. A. J. Ashton (daughter), and Mr. A. J. Ashton (son-in-law). Second coach: Miss A. M. Sugden (daughter), Mrs. Herbert B. Sugden (daughter-in-law) Mr. Benjamin Sugden (brother). Mr. William Sugden (brother). Third coach Mr. John Mitchell (brother-in-law), Mr. J. D. Sugden (nephew), Mr. F. H. Sugden (nephew), Mr. W. S. Ashton (grandson). Fourth coach The Rev. William Foster, B.A. (London), and Mr. W. Parkinson. At the Cemetery were a number of ol fri nds of the dece'sed gentleman, including Councillor McDongall. Messrs. C. F. Whitehead, James Hudson, J. H. Todd (trustees), James Walsii (o: the Ragged School), John Mawdslev, and Wil- liam Barlow (Messrs. Rylands L\: Sons, Ltd.), Fred Smith, Thomas Hughes (John-street Hall), A. Swanway (old friends of Mr. Sug- den s). In the chapel a special service was con- ducted by the Hev. William Foster, who delivered a brief but impressive address. He intimated, after reading the prayers and lesson, that he desired, if permitted, to strike a personal note. He felt extremely diffident to make any comment on such a solemn occasion, but. it seemed almost natural that he should say one cr two words. The only claim he had for speaking was one of affec- tionate regard for the one who had passed away full of years and honours. He had been bound to many present by ties of noble and effective service, and those who knew him best would most likely agree that it would be out of place and not in harmony with his wishes that he should attempt any- thing in the shape of a biography. He had to speak with some disadvantage as com- pared with the knowledge of many present. He came into personal contact with Mr. Sugden in an official capacity about ten years ago, and that officialism developed into friendship, which had been maintained ever since. He was not a curious man, and had no desire to find out all about those around where he lived, and, therefore, he ^W ^estions. Mr Sugden was mos^ the French order of cTiTvalry. rfe had a strict sense of honour, which was mani- fested in all his business relationships. He was probably tinged most with a spirit for doing that which was absolutely right, and he possessed something more than that, a keen, clever, capable, upright and business qnirit—a hi"h standard of Christian excell- ence He thought they found the same ence. ri runn- jnto all the details of WsTwork He supposed there were thousands ] ^,?uiren in that town who would grieve r his death .nd remember that they owed they were coming +owards the cemetery he was told that 75 per cent. of the workers of the Ragged School Mission had come out oi the mission itqclf. Thirty years ago Mr. Sugden was one of those who were imbued with the idea of founding that institution, which had been so successful, and brought so much honour to the Master's service His wholo thought was what could he do, not that he wanted to achieve glory or reflect honour upon himself, but because the Kinu had entrusted him with the work he went into it. There was no idea of profit about him it would be impertinent for him to go further into details, but a more perfect gentleman than Mr. Sugden it would be im- possible to find. He was humble, retiring, and unobtrusive. He might say that when the Great Dav came, in his own case, if he had a similar record to that of Mr. Sugden, he should not be ashamed of it. Thev might rest assured that Mr. Sugden had his reward, and that the consummation of Llis grace would rest upon those who were leti behind. Prayer was then offered, the minister appeal- ing for niort- jewels" in their friend's crown of iife. The mourners then moved towards the grave, the walls of which were lined with purple, decorated with flowers and ever greens. Here the committal service was read by the rev. gentleman. Wreaths of white and coloured chrysanthemums came from Mother, Carrie, Pc llie, and Maud, Nellie and Bertie, Mrs. W. A Davies (Leeds). With deep sympathy Misses Hattersley. With deep sympathy"; f" In loving memory" from Mr. and Mrs. Ashton and family the children of Langlev, Hale In loving re membrance," from Misses Milner, Dale. Moor, St. James' road, llkley; Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell Coiwyn Bay. There was also an evergreen wreath around the gravestone.

Nodion Ned Llwyd. DIOLCH. Mae Catrin a minnau yn teimlo yn ddiolch- gar iawn i'r bardd Penllyn am ei englynion da yn y rhifyn diweddaf, ac hefyd am ei wahoddiad carcdig i 'Steddfod y Calan. Mae yn debyg yr awn yno. Nid wyi wedi colli yr un o honynt ers blynyddau, ac nid yw yn debyg y collaf hon, beth bvnnag. Am Catrin. nis gallaf tod yn sicr a fydd hi yno ai peidio, ond mi a wn ei bod yn hoff iawn o Delynores Gwyngyll a'i thelyn, ac y mae wedi clywed ei bod hi yn gwasanaethu yn y 'Steddfod eleni. Cawn weled sut y bydd pethau. Mae gennym ddau gyhoeddiad arall cyn hynny. sef 'Steddfod Conwy y Nadolig yma (bydd yno le da, fel arfer), a Bethlehem, Colwyn Bay, nos Fawrth. Mae Mr. Jones, yr ysgrifennydd. yn garedig iawn wedi trefnu lie i ni ein dan. Da iawn y gwnaeth y pwyllgor YiJa yn nodi y Parch. D. S. Owen, B.A., yn feirniad yr adrodd- un o blant yr eglwys, ac un sydd yn Jprysur ap ddringo i safleoedd uchel. Mr. Vaughan Davies yw beirniad y canu yno. Mae yn ganwr ardderchog ei hun, ac wedi beirniadu llawer. Pa le bynnag y cynhelir cyfarfodydd yn y cylch yr wyf yn hyderu y ceir hwyl a heddwch ynddynt ac ar ol iddynt fyned heibio. Mae rhagolygon da am Iwyddiant yn Eglwys Bach, Penmachno, Trefriw, &c. Nid wyf yn guy bod llawer o'r manylion am danynt yn y lleoedd hyn, ond mi a wn yr arferir cael cyfarfodydd hwyliog a lIwydd- ianus. ac mae'n debyg y byddant felly eleni hr-fyd. PENMAENMAWR. Edrychir ymlaen at y Nadolig gyda llaw- enydd mewn llawer teulu. Amser i fod felly ydyw y Nadolig, ond y mae ffyrdd Rhaglun- iaeth yn dywyll. Daeth cwmwl du i ddau o deuluoedd ,y lie hwn pan oeddynt yn edrych ymlaen am lawenydd y Gwyliau. Cyfeirio yr wyf at y brofedigaeth chwerw ddaeth i gyfartod Mr. D. H. Owen, Arcade, a'r teulu, ym marwolaeth Mrs. Owen, a hynny mor sydyn ac anisgwyliadwy. Yr oedd Mrs. Owen yn un o'r gwragedd mwyaf siriol a charedig, ac yn anwyl a pharchus gan bawb. Mae a Mr. Owen a'r teulu gydymdeimlad llawer yn yr amgylchiad. Cledd a min yw claddu mam," a chredaf mai hyn ydyw teimlad v plant oil. —Yr amgylchiad arall ydyw marwolaeth Mr. Williams, un o feibion v Parch. Caleb Williams. Bu farw oddi cartref. Galwyd ef ymaith ym mlodau ei ddyddiau, Dyg- wyd ei gorft gartref, a chatodd angladd barchus a lliosog. Gotidiwn nad allaswn fod yn yr angladd. Bydded i'r teulu oil gael nerth i ymgynnal yn nyfnder y brofedig- aeth ddu." CLAN CONWY. Clywais ganmol mawr ar y cyngherdd fu yma yr wythnos ddiweddaf vn Fforddlas. Yr oedd Mr. Will Roberts, Bangor, a'i fab, Master Jack Roberts, yno yn canu, ac yn cael hwyl ardderchog. Yr ocddwn mewn cyfariod heno, lie yr oedd y mab yn canu, a rhaid i mi ddweyd ei fod yn ffafryn y, gvnulleidfa. Nid oes eisiau synnu at hyn, pan gotir ei fod yn un o'r choristers gan Dr. Rogers yn Eglwys Gadeiriol Bangor. Y NADOLIG. Yr oeddwn wedi meddwl y buaswn yn cael hamdden i ysgrifennu ystori at y Nadolig yma. Dyna welir mewn llawer o bapurau. Pan oeddwn yn dychweiyd gartref heno yn y tren, ceisiwn feddwl a chofio am rywbeth allai fod yn ddyddorol. Cofiais am dair ystori a glywais am fyfyrwyr Cymreig, a dyma hwy :— MERCHED Y FFARM. Un nos Sadwrn, yr ocdd myfyriwr yn myned i'w gyhoeddiad ym Mon. Can fod y lie gryn filltir o'r orsaf, yr oedd yn arferiad anfon cerbyd i gyfarfod y pregethwr. Fel rheol, byddent yn arfer aros gyda Mr. a Mrs. Owen, fiermwyr parchus a chvfrifol. Y gwas anfonid amlaf i'r stesion gyda'r cerbyd, ond ar v nos Sadwrn hwn aeth Mr. Owen, ac nid oedd wedi cymeryd fawr o amser i dwtio llawer arno ei hun. Pan oeddynt yn myned ymlaen ar y daith, soniodd y myfyriwr am y teulu yr oedd yn myned i aros gyda hwy, a thybiai mai y gwas oedd gydag ef. Dech- reuodd holi. Oes acw lawer o ferched ? Ydyn' nhw yn rhai go diysion ? Ydyn' nhw yn werth tipvn o bres ? Oes ganddvnt gar- iadau ? a llawer o gwestiynau eraill i'r un cyfeiriad, ac atebai Mr. Owen vr oil fel gwas. Cyrhaeddwyd at y Harm. Safodd y cerbyd wrth y drws. Galwodd Mr. Owen y gwas i ddod yno a rhoddi y ceffyl i fewn, &c., a'r pryd hyn y gwelodd y myfyriwr pwv oedd ei gerbydwr. Noson anesmwyth iawn a gafodd wedi hyn, a buasai yn well ganddo na Ilawer pe gaIlasai ddianc oddi yno. Maddeuodd Mr. Owen iddo, ond byth er hynny y mae yn fwy gofalus pan yn myned i'w gyhoeddiadau. Gan nad wyf yn rhoddi ei enw, disgwvliaf y bydd iddo yntau faddeu i minnau am roddi y stori i fewn. MYN D I ELD1. Dyma un arall. Yn ardal y mae addoldy o'r enw Elim. Un nos Sadwrn elai myfyriwr i'w gyhoeddiad yno. Yr oedd wedi aros yn hwyr cyn cychwyn. Yr oedd y lie yn ddieithr iddo, ond cerddai ymlaen. Gwelai oleuni mewn ffenestr llofft ty ar fin v ffordd. Penderfynodd ofyn iddynt yno am gyfarwyddid. Curodd y drws. Agorwyd y ftenestr, a dvma'r ymddiddan fu yno :— Pwy sydd yna ? Ellwch chwi ddweyd wrthyf, os gwelwch yn dda, pa ffordd yr af at Elim ? Pwy ydych ? Pregethwr ydwyf, ac eisiau mynd at Elim." Ewch adref, rhag eich cywilydd eisiau mynd at r Elin yr adeg- yma o'r nos." Ac i ffwrdd y bu rhaid iddo fynd ar hyn CAEL EI DF) kL. Ar nos Sadwrn yn yr haf, aeth un myfyr- y iwr i'w gyhoeddiad i un o drefi glan y mor. Gan ei fod yno yn gynnar, aeth am dro. Eis- teddodd i lawr ar un o'r eisteddleoedd ar y Promenade. Yn ei ymyl cisteddai merch ieuanc, a llyfr yn ei llaw. Yn fuan aeth vn sgwrs rhwng y ddau am y tvwydd, &c. Wedi bod yno felly am amser, sylwodd y ferch ei bod yn myned gartref. Cymerodd yntau fantais ar hynny i ofyn gawsai fyned i'w danfon. Teimlai hi yn amharod i gydsvnio. Holai ef o ba le yr oedd yn dyfod ? A oedd am aros yn y lie yn hir, &c. ? Dywedodd mai trafaehwr ydoedd, a'i iod yn treulio ei wyliau yn y lie. Yn gweled golwg barchus arno, ac yn credu ei dystiolaeth am dano ei hun, caniataodd y ferch iddo fyned gyda hi i gvfeiriad ei chartref. Cwahanwyd ar y dealItwriaeth eu bod i gyfarfod drachefn nos Lun. Bore Saboth aetii y myfyriwr i'r capel, ac i'r pulpud. Cododd i fyny i roddi yr enivn allan, ac er ei fraw pwy welai wrth yr offeryn ond y ferch ieuanc yr oedd wedi bod yn dweyd yr an wired dau wrthi nos Sadwrn. Felly cafodd ef ei ddal. Dyna'r tair ystori. I-e allai y bydd rhyw- rai yn amen nad ydynt wirionedd. Wrth y cvfryw yn unig dywedaf y gallaf roddi ciia-ait y tri pe angen. Y PUSMYN. Mae llawer o honom yn mcddwl mai bywyd dibryder a diberygl ydyw bywyd y rhai hyn, ond darllenwn yn ami eu bod yn dioddcf llawer. Mae yr hyn sydd wedi cymeryd lie yn Llundain y dydd o'r blaen yn sicr o fod yn ein gwneud yn iwy parod i gydym- deimlo a'r heddgeidwaid. Mae yn ofnadwy o beth fod dynion yn cael eu llofruddio fol hvn prtn yn cyflawni en dyledswyddau. Nid oes gennyf ond gobeithio y llwyddir i ddal y lladron gwaedlyd hyn, ac y cospir hwy cr esiampl i eraill Dyma y Nodion olaf gaf ysgriiennu cyn y Nadolig.

Croes Honotius." A COLWYN BAY PLACE-NAME. In our last issue we referred to the fact that in the Catholic magazine edited by the Rev. Father Trebaol, of Llanrwst, the parish of Groes-yn-Eirias, Coiwyn Bay, is referred to as Groes Honorius." We asked whether the latter was the original place-name, and if so, how the change had come about. On this subject we have received a letter from that well-known historian and anti- quary, the Vicar of Prestatyn. The Rev. Meredith J. Hughes writes '— I drew attention to the matter years ago in your columns. Croes Eirias seems at one time to have been Croes vn Eirias. Person- ally, I am inclined to think that Eirias," which is an adjective (e.g., tan eirias, Eirias boeth) could not have been the original place- name. We have parallels to Croes Honorius in the two Croes Engans in the district. The oonxa, &r i"i ere s WKKWH < missionary, so far as I know. Still that is not an insuperable obstacle. The cross, at first, was probably a wooden one, and it would be interesting to search the hill in which Plas Eirias is situated for the possible ruins of an ancient oratory.
The University of London has conferred upon Professor T. Hudson Williams, M.A., Professor of Greek at the University College of North Wales, Bangor, the degree of Doctor of Literature (D.Lit.) The work which he submitted to the University for the degree was his recently-published book on the Elegies of Theognis."
The Abergele Charges. I COMMITTAL TO THE QUARTER SESSIONS. On Saturday, at a special court, Daniel Owen, a labourer, latelv in the employ of Mr. R. Cross, Llanddulas Mills, was brought up on remand, charged with stealing an overcoat, the property of John Robert Jones, employed by Mr. J. Williams, Harp Hotel, Abergele. The Justices were Messrs. J. T. Millward (chairman) and E. Williams. The evidence given at the previous hearing by P.C. Rowlands, Llanddulas, was read over. The prosecutor, John Robert Jones, 2, Rhuddian-road, Abergele, said he was a driver in the employ of Mr. John Williams, Harp Hotel, Abergele. He had a fawn- coloured overcoat in the saddle-room on Saturday, the 22nd October, and 011 going to look for it on the 23rd he found it missing, and he eventually informed the police of his loss. OIL Saturday, the 10th inst., he was sent for to the Abergele Police Station, and the coat now produced was shown to him, which he identified as the one he had lost. He had a matk on it stitched with led cotton under the light arm. He valued the coat at 7s. 6d., and the buttons at 2s. 6d., 10s. in all. The prisoner had 110 questions to ask, and when the charge was read out to him he had nothing to say. A further charge was then made against him of stealing a CLOCK AND SPEEDOMETER, valued at ^12, the property of a gentleman from H uddei sfield. The prosecutor, Mr. Joseph Blaimire, woollen manufacturer, Bradley Lodge, Hud- dersfield, said that in September last he had an accident to his car near Llanddulas, and it was placed in a field near the village. The speedometer was then attached to it. In a day or two afterwards he went to see the car, and the speedometer was missing, and infor- mation was given to the police. He identi- fied the speedometer and clock produced, as his property, and he valued it at about £12. It must have been taken off by a novice, as four screws had been taken off, whereas taking two off would have released it. Gwilym Hughes, 12 years of age, son of Ellen Hughes, a widow, living at The Square, Llanddulas, said that some time back he was with the prisoner at the Mill stable, and was reading in the paper about Crippen's case to him. He asked prisoner the time, when he went to a shelf on the top of the wall, took something in his hand and looked at it, and said it was after 7. He held the thing in his hand in such a way that he (witness) could not see it. and he then put it back on the shelf. Last Monday morning witness told Mr Robert Cross what he had seen. Robert Cross, corn dealer, Llanddulas Mills, said the prisoner, Daniel Owen, had been in his employ since the 24th of Angust last. At the request of the police, witness made a search of the premises, and, from what Gwilym Hughes had told him, he went to the stable, and on searching the top shelf he found the clock and speedometer now pro- duced, and took it to the house. It was wrapped up in what appeared to be an old stacking. He afterwards handed it to P.C. Rowlands. Usually no one but the prisoner had access to the stable, especially for the last month or two. P.C. Rowlands said that on the 16th Sept. last he received information that a motor clock and speedometer had been taken from a motor car left in a field, close to a gate, and only ten yards from the highway. In conse- quence of information received, he had reasons for visiting the prisoner on the 22nd of Sept. He told him that he had reason to believe that he was among others in the field where the motor car was left on the evening of the 15th September, between 7 and 8 p.m. He then made a certain statement implicating another party. Witness asked him whether he wished to say anything more about it. He said 41 I have not seen the speedometer and clock after it was thrown down on the field by Peter Evans. I think you will find the clock in his possession." On the 10th inst. he searched the prisoner's box in his bedroom at the Mill House. Before doing so he asked him if the box was his, and all that was in it, and he replied Yes." On searching the box he found the frame and the speedometer in it, wrapped in brown paper, and tied with string. He opened it out, and asked prisoner how it came into his possession, also saying the clock had been extracted He said I know nothing about the clock, but I found that in the field where the damaged motor car was left some time ago." Witness then asked him "Do you recollect me visiting you on the 22nd of September seeking information about some of these articles ? He replied" Yes; I had it for some time in the stable, but of late I have kept it in my box here." Last Monday (witness continued). I visited the Mills, and Robert Cross handed me the clock (produced). I charged the prisoner with stealing the speedometer and clock from the motor left in a field near Llanddulas on the Isth of Sept. last. He replied" I did not steal it. I found it in the field about a fortnight after the accident, and you know what I told yon about the clock." Sergt. Rees said an important witness (Peter Evans) was absent, and he asked for a subpoena to compel him to attend. A car was sent for Evans, but he did not attend. The charge was then read over to the prisoner, and he then said I wish to say that I did not take the speedometer from the car. Peter Evans took it from the motor, and thre>v it on the floor, savitig I Put it in your pocket,' but I replied 'No, I won't look at the crowd there is here. Leave it there, and come away from it.' He then took out his knife, ripped the tyre, and put the clock inside, and I asked him What good will that do you ?' Sergeant Rees said there were four other charges against the prisoner, for stealing clothing, but it was not intended to proceed with them. The prisoner was then committed to take his trial at the next Quarter Sessions, in January.

Death of Mr. J. B. Jones, Llandudno. We deeply regret to chronicle the death of another townsman, Mr James Beaty Jones, of Derwen Lee, which took place rather suddenly at his residence, on Friday. Mr Jones was a painter and decorator in the town for over a score of years, during which time he had become one of the most flourish- ing of our tradesmen. His health had not been 01 the best for a considerable time, but on Thursday, in company of a friend, he went for a drive. He was 44 years of age, and a native of Liverpool, but was of Welsh origin. His death will be greatly regretted, coming as it did with tragic sud- denness, by a Large circle of friends. He was a member of the May-Day Committee for several years a member of the Swifts' Foot- ball Committee, when in its full glory vice- chairman of the Llandudno Company of Boy Scouts and a j-icinber of the North Wales Company of Artilleiy, raising in the ranks to be Sergeant Major, and earned the long- service medal. He leaves a widow to mourn his loss. A MILITARY FUNERAL. A large number of people assembled in Maelgwyn Road, on Tuesday afternoon, to witness the funeral. At all the houses, blinds were drawn.

Hughes), officiated at the house, and the bearers of the coffin were military ooneagues of the. late Mr Jones. The solemn cortege was headed by a-car- riage containing the Rector, and, the late Mr Jones's medical adviser, Dr Kendrick. Davies.
