Sudden Death of Mr. Fred W.,Jones. We deeply regret to record the death, with tragic suddenness, of Mr. Frederick William *'I ones, ot Cob tenant. Trinity street, I.landudno, which sad event occurred early on Tuesday morning. About six o'clock on Tuesday morning a man going to his labour found Mr. Jones lying on the pavement near I'rvn Arthur, Caroline-street, and the cause of his death, under such shocking circum- stances. was dealt with at the Coroner s in- quest held yesterday. He was a native of the town, his father and mother being con- nected with two of the most highly respected families. He was born at Maelgwvnlioiise, where now stand the premises of Messrs. Plairman <S: Co., and the Maelgwyn Hotel. For some years he was engaged with Messrs. Chamberlain «V Johnson, solicitors. When in his early teens he commenced playing football, and soon developed to be one of the f'nest backs that -N-ortli Wales ever produced. He stood six leet two inches in height, and was known to be the acme of fairness in the game of football. Although big in stature, he never used his weight to the disadvantage of a smaller opponent by unfair means. For many years he was a shining member of the marvellous I iandudno Swifts, and played during, his football career for Burslem Port Vale, Newton Heath Club (now known as Manchester Linitert,, and Small Heath (now I'irminghanO, and after playing for Reading, in the Southern l eague, he returned to re- ioin the llandndno c\vifts. For one season he played tor Carnarvon. For some years he had played with the Corinthians F.C., and was secretary thereof, as well as at the time of his death the Secre- tary of the Wednesday League of North Wales. His unexiected death came as a shock to the to\ui. THE 7NQUFST. The inquest was held yesterday /Wednes- day) afternoon at the Town Hall, Llandlldno, by the Coroner, Mr. J. Pentir Williams. Mr. Pierce (ones was elected foreman of the jury. WiPíam Hughes, 1-), King's-road, I.lan- dudno, milkman, said he was going to his work about twenty-five minutes to si\ on the morning of Tuesday, and when opno-ite lhs Arthur, in Caroline-street, he noticed something lying on the side of the parapet. At first he thought it was a tree which had been blown down. He went to the stable, and after thinking the matter over, he thought he had better go back tor it might be someone that was hing- there who had had a drop of drink. He met one of his friends, another milkman, Mr. Gregory, and both proceeded to the spot and found it was a man that lay there. Witness got hold ot him and shook him, and told him to get up. Witness, receiving no answer, struck a match, and found the man was dead. The body was not unite cold. Witness met Sergeant Williams and ronstable Williams near the Hospital.andiniormed them. Witness knew it was Mr. lonc" when he lit the match. Mr. Gregory went for Dr. Cooddy. A Juror How was he lying when you saw him ? NN"Iitness Sideways, and doubled up in a lying position against the wall. It appeared to me as it deceased had been sitting on the garden wall and had slipped down as if to sleep. sergeant Thomas John Richards said he was summoned to Caroline street, opposite IPs Arthur, about six in the morning. He sa\v the deceased on the parapet, L in across it in a half sitting position, against the wall. Witness examined him and found the man was dead, hut not exactly co!d. He asked one of the men present to run for Dr. Cooddv and the latter was there in a very short time. The doc'or said life was extinct, and the body was removed to the mortuary. There were no marks on the body. Robert Edmund Deucer, Oaktield. Clifton road. Llandudno, identified the body as that of his !,r,¡thcr-in hll, Frederick Willi mi Inrifs, of <ob Renc.nt, Trinitv-strejt, 1.1an dadvo. He was a clerk, and 41 years of age. He was always healthy, having only Lule ailments but nothing serious. He had no fits. He saw deceased about 4.0 on the afternoon of Monday. Dr. l'dward Samuel Cooddy said that when he arrived at the place where deceased was. he was lving on the Hat of his back diagonally across the pav ement. His eye glasses were still on his lace, and he had been dead some time. He was not stone cold, but growing cold. He had been dead probablv one or two hours. The face was purple, and froth issued from the nostrils, but there was no sign of violence. He was unable to say the cause of death. He had made a post-mor- tem examination of the body. The heart was enlarged, as the heart of an athlete would be. It was enlarged slightly out of proportion for a man even of his size. The membranes of the brain were slightly con- gested, and with those two exceptions, all the oreans were perfectly healthy. In his opinion, the cause of death was not heart failure, but an epileptic fit. It was only fair that he should say that there was evidence of alcohol in the stomach, but no evidence of excess of alcohol. Witness hud known deceased before, and he was not, to his knowledge, addicted to drink. Albert Henry Karnes, Sambourne, Caro- line-street, Llandudno, bootmaker, said lie met deceased about six o'clock on Monday evening in the billiard room of the Haning- ton Hotel. Witness and deceased partici- pated in two four-handed games of billiards. At eleven o'clock, they, with a iriend, went down Mostvn-street together. W hilst at the Harrington Hotel, deceased drank nothing but beer but he could not say how much he drank. They walked as far as Ind, Coopes' establishment and spoke together. later thev saw Mr. Vincent, of The Avondale, who invited deceased and witness UP to his room to have a drink, as it was Christmas time. They went. Deceased had one beer and one brandv or whisky and soda. They were there about an hour. They left together for home. When they got to the corner of Car-line street, deceased said I am iust ready for my supper, Harry." Witness suggested that deceased went home with him to have some. They had supper to- gether, and deceased left about 2.30 a.m. They had been sitting together and chatting over the hre for some time. He went to the gateway with deceased closed the gate, and wished him good and deceased went down the street apparently all right. It would be about 200 yards from witness's house where deceased was found. Deceased was decidedly not under the influence of drink. He did not show any sign of drink. He might say that deceased had a fit of coughing for two or three minutes at his house, through suddenly swallowing some smoke of a cigarette. by Deputy Chief Constable Rees Had be beer or bottles of stout on him ? Witness Not that I saw, but I heard him ask for some at the Harrington. The Coroner said that what appeared quite an unaccountable death had been cleared np by Dr. Cooddy, who had said that the probable cause of death was an epileptic lit. and he was or opinion that that was the verdict which the mry should return. JfcThc Jury returned a verdict in accordance with the suggest ion of Dr. Gooddv. The Foreman of the jury moved a vote of coHd^lfenrtf wtflx 4he <vife and family.- Thev all knew the late Mr. lones as being verv kind-hearted": a true husband, and a good father. Mr. Robert Deucer was'asked to convey the vote to the relatives.

Christmas Festivities at the Oakwood Park Hotel. Elaborate preparations were made for the Christmas holidays at the picturesque Oak- wood Park Hotel, near Conway, and on Friday, about 130 distinguished visitors ar- rived at the hotel for the festivities. Under the capable superintendence of Mrs. C. A. Bailey, the manageress, everything possible had been done to ensure The comfort and the happiness of the guests. The festivities commenced on Friday evening, with a progressive whist tourna- ment, and on Christmas Eve, there was a Cinderella dance. The ballroom and corridors had been transformed into a veri- table fairyland, and with the excellent lights and the beautiful dresses worn, the scene was one of brilliance. On Christmas Day, a concert was held in the theatre of the hotel, when an excellent programme was contri-. buted by Mr. Barlow, Mr Porter, Birming- ham Miss Streather Booth, West Kirby; Dr. Griffiths, Liverpool; Miss Sotwell, Dr. Hall Griffiths, Miss Pollock, Mrs Hopwood, and Miss Pratt. On Monday evening, there was a fancy dress masked ball, when prizes were offered for the most humorous costumes, and for the prettiest ana best designed. The guests vied with each other in the originality of their dresses, and the adjudicators had con. siderable difficulty in awarding the prizes. The ballroom again presented a beautiful spectacle, and it was evident that the guests were greatly enjoying themselves. The prize winners were:—Best design (ladies), Mrs. Sabine, London (gentlemen), Mr. C. Poulton Plant, Wolverhampton most hum. orous (ladies), Mrs Charlesson, West Kirby; (gentlemen), Mr Pollock, Worcester. On Tuesday a dance was held, and last (Wed- nesday) evening, there was another success- ful Cinderella dance. Throughout the week entertainments are provided ior the guests. The billiard tournament was won by Mr. A. Hudson, Rock Ferry. GOLFING. This i-s one of the chief attractions of the hotel, for a finer golf course could hardly be wished for. They are beautifully situated in close proximity to the hotel. The num- erous competitions arranged by the pro- prietor drew forth a large array of competi- tors, all of whom were loud in their praise of the excelIent condition of the I links. For the Oakwood Park Challenge Cup, there was a good entry, and the final match proved very exciting, the finalists being followed by a large number of guests. Ir. P. Ford, Trentham, and Mr. G. Pepper, Handsworth. were the finalists, and when they were all square at the 18th hole, there was a cheer. Play became very exciting, and every movement was keenly watched, but it was not until they got to the 21St hole, that Mr Penper gained the upper hand, and thus won the beautiful troohy. The winner of the Oakwood Park medal was Mr. G. Ashton, West Didsbury Further com- petition's are being held during the week.

( Conway Bridge Commis- sioners v. Jones. This case came on for further hearing he- fore Mi. Justice Eve in the Chancery Divisic 1 last week in the form of an adjourned sum- mons to be heard with witnesses. Mr. E. Clayton, K.C., and Mr. J. M. Cover (instructed by Mr. W. Thornton Jones, of Ban- gor) were counsel for the Commissioners, and Mr. P. Ogden Lawrence, K.C., and Mr. Owen Thompson represented Mr. I. \V. Hughes, solicitor, Conway, as claimant and as one of the respondents to the summons. The question for the decision of the Court was whether the 131 IGs. Id., balance in hand of Mr. Hugh Parry (Borough Account- ant), as Receiver appointed by the Court in the iccent action by the Commissioners against Mr. J. Lloyd Jones, the late lessee, should be paid to the plaintiffs or to Mr. Hughes. The amount represented the net tolls after payment of costs of collection taken at the Bridge from March 15th to 31st last, and it was claimed by the plaintiffs as applicable in part payment of the costs of action and appeal ordered to be paid by Mr. J. Lloyd Jones. Mr. Hughes claimed to be entitled to payment of this sum as mortgagee in pos- session under a mortgage dated the 5th March last. Upon the case being called on, Mr. Ogden Lawrence, K.C., said Mv Lord,-In this case I appear for Mr. Hughes, who is the mortgagee and respondent. Mr. Hughes has left himself in mv hands entirely in this case, and I have taken the responsi- bility of advising him not to resist the pay- ment, under the circumstances, of the whole of the monies to the Receiver in the action. Mr. Justice Eve To the plaintiffs. Mr. P. O. Lawrence Yes, my Lord, and he also submits to pay such costs as your Lordship thinks have been involved bv rea- son of the claim he made. 1 desire to state that I have advised him to do that because of his position there. He is a solicitor, and he is a member of the plaintills' Council, and the whole matter rests on a conflict of evidence between himself and the Borough Accountant. Under those circumstances, I have advfsed him not to put himself in a position to be examined and cross-examined. He was quite willing to adopt that view be- cause the Borough Accountant may have been mistaken. I ought to state this. 1 have investigated mv cliemt's other papers, and, whatever may be the outcome of the evidence between the two, he was honestly under the belief that he has sworn to, and that is borne out by a letter which he wrote to his London agents that night asking whether he was right in what he had done. It is un- fortunate that the matter was not put into writing, but it is quite possible that the Borough Accountant might have been mis- taken. I have suggested to him, considering his position as a solicitor there and one of the masters of the Borough Accountant, that he should not put himself in a position to be examined and cross-examined where there is a contlict of evidence on such a point, and also considering the smallness of the whole amount involved—I think it is only /130 and costs. It is sure to be published all over the district in which he practices, which will do him harm. Under these cir- cumstances, I ask your Lordship to disregard mv clients claim in dealing with the sum- mons to proceed and to do what your Lord- si ip thinks right in the claim that has been made as regards the costs. 1 approached n.y friend to say that there should be no costs, but he does not see his way to fall in with that, and therefore I leave it to your Lordship to do what you think right. Mr. Justice F ve: Have all the witnesses been brought up ? Mr. P. O. Lawrence I think everything is ready, my Lord. It was only this morn- ing that 1 asked my client whether lie would place himself in my hands. Mr. Clayton On the 23r(I May the Master made an order on the summons discharging the Receiver, and it was adjourned into Court. Mr. Justice Eve He ordered him to pay the balance to the plaintiffs. lr. Clavton To pass his account and pav the balance to us. That will be the order that will be now made. With regard to the costs, I ask your Lordship to give us the costs of and occasioned by this claim. Mr. Justice Eve It is a proper form, but in the hrst place it was adjourned into Court because the parties were not satislied with the Master they wished to come to the Judge, not upon the claim which ultimately developed, but that there was a claim that might be affected by the possession of the mortgage. Mr. Clayton I can tell your Lordship exactly how it stood. Mr. Justice Fve: Then Mr. Owen Thomp- son wanted to introduce some new matter. lr. Clayton On the 25th April we took out our ordinary summons to discharge the Receiver and so on, "and he brought in his account, which showed a balance in his hands uf -1-131 IC-s. Id. On the application before the Master, Mr. Parry filed an affidavit verifying his account as to the monies re- ceived b\- him, and on that occasion Ir. Hughes filed an affidavit, sworn on the 28th April, simply verifying the mortgage of the tolls to him, and stating the amount due to him 1131 10s., I think it was. That came before the Master on the 2nd May, and the hearing was then adjourned for some reason until the 23rd May. On the :2.3nl May there was before the Master simply the two affi- davits the one of Mr. Parry verifying his account, and the one of Mr. Hughes verifying his mortgage. On that occasion the Master decided he would make the order discharging the Receiver. Thereupon Mr. Hughes asked for an opportunity to bring in another affidavit. J'he Master pointed out that the evidence was closed, and declined to do that, and then it was adjourned to your Lordship. Mr. justice F.ve At that moment Mr. Hughes was not a party to the proceedings. Mr. Clayton He was not, my Lord. He brought in the a udavit on that claim. The summons was addressed to him because, on the application for the appointment of the Receiver, his London agents appeared and stated that he was a mortgagee, and therefore the summons to proceed is ad- dressed to him. and on that occasion he was not only a solicitor but a party to that appli- cation. Mr. 1 ustice Fve He was entitled to ask the Master to refer it to the tidge. Mr. Clayton On his claim to be paid out of the /131 Ids. lid., /133 10s.—that is to sav, the whole of it. Mr. Justice Eve Did the Master propose to make vou or Mr. Hughes pay any costs of that summons ? Mr. Clayton I do not think so, my Lord. I do not ask for any costs against Mr. Hughes prior to the 23rd May, but 1 ask for all the costs subsequent to that, including the ad- journment to your Lordship. 9 Mr. J ustice Eve Do you mean including that adjournment ? Mr. Clayton Yes, my Lord. Mr. Justice Eve: No. As a rule, in any f case Mr. Clayton I am not going to quarrel. When your Lordship understands the facts, I am not going to say anything more about it. Mr. Justice Eve: If there is anything in the matter 1 very seldom make a party pay any costs of coming to the Judge either in Court or in Chambers. Then you say that on that the whole matter was changed. Mr. Clayton Then the affidavit he swore in support of his, if I may so, new case, the present case, was sworn on the 1st July, but it did not come in fact before your Lordship until the 13th October. The Vacation, of course, intervened. I suppose there was not sufficiexlt time to get it on before the Vacation, and it -ame on shortly after the Vacation. That would be upon an adjournment to yours on the 13th October. In the meantime we had taken a copy of his aflidavit of the h-t July, and I am only sug- gesting that our costs ought to include that ffidait-beoin with that affidavit. Mr. Justice Fve 1 think, if you insist upon it. the attitude that he took was that there was a special arrangement under which he was in fact, as prior mortgagee, in possession before the Receiver went and there was a special arrangement by which that posses- sion was not disturbed. I think, if you in- sist upon it, and he does not appear now to support it--I appreciate entirely what Mr. Lawrence has said the amount is not large, and it is not the sort of dispute that one would wish to be engaged in—vou are en- titled to your costs occasioned bv the new case which was raised, that is, as from the 23rd May. 1 think Mr. Hughes should pav those. Mr. P. O. Lawrence Of course, after the 23rd NJ-,t\, -not including the 23rd May. Mr. Justice Fve: Not including the ad iournment ot the 23rd May. Mr. Clayton All costs after the 23rd May. [r. Justice Eve: \es. 1 suppose it is not an action in which they will be taxed between olicitor and client. Mr. Clayton: it is a litigation between parties —party and party costs. :\1;. justice f-.ve )es, party and party costs. I see by the Public -Authorities' Act that would not really be so. Mr. Clayton Of course, the costs of my clients inciude the witnesses. ir. 1 ustice Eve Yes. Air. P. 0. Lawrence Yes, the cost of bring- ing them un. Judgment for Commissioners accordingly. Our readers will recollect that the late lessee of the Conway Bridge tolls gave notice that he intended to levy an increased toll on vehicles, which he claimed he was entitled to under the lease granted to him by the Commissioners. As this proposal, if carried out, would he most detrimental to the pros- perity of the Borough of Conway, the Com- missioners, in the interest of the inhabitants, having failed to induce the lessee to abandon his intention, sought an injunction in the High Court to restrain him from levying these increased tolls. Upon that question coming before the Court, judgment was given in favour of the lessee. The Com- missioners, for financial reasons, were not inclined to appeal against this judgment, and were prepared to consider any moderate claim which the lessee might put forward to satisfy his claim for the loss incurred by him in not levying the increased toll for the period 1st April to 1st November, I90Q, which, by the decision of the Court, lie was entitled to levy. The claim put forward was /1,?00, and this was considered bv the Commissioners sg unreasonable that they immediately gave notice of appeal. As is well known, this appeal came before the Master of the Rolls and Lord Justices I letcher, Moulton, and Buckley, who unani- mously set aside the decision" of the Court below with costs against the lessee. This result justified the course taken bv the Com- missioners in resisting the action of the lessee, and undoubtedly saved the town from serious conse juence. i'he Commissioners incurred heavy costs in defending other rights, which,' we believe, amount to several hundreds of pounds, and we understand that these have not been paid by the lessee. In order to recover some of this money, they obtained an order to appoint a Receiver to collect the tolls before the expiration of the lease. The amount collected was n )t much, abjut J l:,(), and the disposal of this sum was the subiect matter which came before the Court' last week, when the Commissioners obtained judgment in their favour.
