Griffith applied for a new trial in the case of th^Bettws-y-Coed Slate Quarry Company (Mr. ^London) against Mr. John Coulston. It wjs a claim for £ 41 damages for goods supplied and refused by the defendant on dflivery. The new trial was applied for on tile ground that the jury gave a verdict contr4 to the weight of evidence, y and also that fone of the jury was not conversant witfl the English language and did not understand the evidence. His Honour Paid it was inconceivable to him that a jutyman would take the oath and not understand the language in which a case was to be tried. Mr. John Gr&fith, the juryman, was then put in the box, and said he understood English much fetter than he could speak it. He answered dlveral questions in English intelligently, b&t said he preferred speaking Welsh to English. He could follow the evidence, and jury did not have to explain to him fie evidence. His Honour ajid he was satisfied that the witness when fp the jury understood the evidence sufficiently. There were scores of people who coutI understand English better than they could fepress themselves. Neither did he concur tj|at the verdict was against the evidence. 1% should not, perhaps, have ..1- given as much damages, but no five reason- able men could nave found for the defendant. The application 4as refused. DISPUTED COMMISSION. A jury case vrais called on, in which E. O. Parry and SonsXestate agents, Llandudno, sued H. O.

There is something about Dunlop Tyres that keeps them first favourite with the cycling- community, aud that something is the very decisive manner in which the high standard of excellence is always maintained. Cyclists are not slow to recognise this fact, and consequently the Dunlop tyre to-day holds a position efc the top, which is even stronger than was ever the case Defore.

A COLWYN BAY CHARITY. Mr. John Porter presided at a meeting of the trustees of the Tynterfyn Charity, held at the Council Chamber, Colwyn Bay, on Fri- day. As a result of the views expressed by the Assistant Commissioner at the recent inquiry, it was decided that in future the income derived Jrom the Tynterfyn Farm and lands be devoted to educational purposes instead of beings distributed in doles to the poor at Christmas. Opinions were divided as to whether vit would be advisable to t establish two scholarships at Abergele County School or one aV, Bangor University College, and ultimately tfee matter was deferred with a view to obtaining the views of local educa- tionists. < Mr. William Envies (representing the Col- wyn Bay District Council) strongly com- plained of the action of local Nonconformists with regard tat. this charity. Some years ago, he said, a great outcry was raised j against the fiifads of this charity being entrusted to th £ Vicar and churchwardens, yet now, when church and chapel were equally represented on the Board of Trustees, very little interest was taken in the matter, the Nonconformists members rarely putting in an appearan4 at the meetings. Mr. Daniel A (a churchwarden) depre- cated the use otfuch remarks. t
COLWYlf BAY ELECTRIC LIG'AT SCHEME. ,J MEETING OF RATEPAYERS. Mr. John Roberts, chairman of the District Council, preside4 over a crowded meeting at Colwyn Bay Ptfplic Hall, last Friday night, called to ascertain the views of the rate- payers with relfcrence to proceeding with a complete schem^of public electric lighting. The ChairmarSjigave an account of the pro- ceedings up to tefie present time with regard c t r ectrie lighti. The temporary scheme on ohe promenade, he said, was a great succesk but the Council hesitated to proceed with scheme dander a provisional order Ith witlwu an expression of opinion in a public g them up. The real question was \|hp!ther C(^v*yn Bay could afford such a heav^^xpendit^rfij. He enumerated a list of loansjpvhich$$&d$mted to nearly £ 50,000. He ^Ppstion^ whether the ratepayers were justified in^pendi^g £ 15,000 more on electric lj^nt.Certainly i^ would not pay unless the fculk df'the ratep^fers utilised the light in their uses. L Councillor Bevattmoved, That this meet- ing is of opinion thkt the erection of electric light ivorks at the^ratepayers' expense will lead t6 a heavy addition to the rate for some years, and suggest at the Council should maketerms with a private company to carry out their order, or ait a few years until a reduction in rates shall have made it possible for; the Council to -do it themselves, and meanwhile, in ordeif to better light the greets, that additional incandescent gas lamps be provided." Their present rate was 5s. 6d. in the pound, snd next year it would probably be another" This was quite as heavy as they could ar. Mr. James Wood seconded, and remarked that Colwyn Bay was-felready rated up to its capacity. He regarded the electric light as a luxury which Colwyn Bay people could not afford. -(Applause.) Mr. William Davies-moved as an amend- ment, "That the Council he instructed to proceed with electritighting forthwith, in accordance with the^provisional order. (Applause.) Mr. Davids went on to speak in favour of the amendment amid interruption. Rhyl and Bangor wergoing in for electric light, and why not Coyn Bay ? Mr. Greenfield seconded the amendment, and further discussionpollowed. On a show of hands einr taken, 52 voted in favour of the scme and 56 against. Thereupon the Rev. Tfiomas Parry proposed that the electric lighting plant already purchased for illumirsating the promenade, but lying idle duringfthe winter months, be utilised for lighting tIie streets in the centre of the town. f Mr. Clint seconded,; and on being put to the meeting this w4 carried by a large majority.

ATYPICAL BRITISH ADMIRAL. Bear-Admiral Sir Gerard Henry Uctred Noel, who has just been made a Knight Commander of the Order of St. Michael and St. George, in recognition of hit valuable services during the recent critical period in Crete, was born on March 5, 1845. He nas been associated with our navy since December, 1858, when he joined that branch of the service as a cadet. Eight years later he became a sub-lieutenant, and received his full lieutenancy in 1866, his other promotions being as follows: Commander, 1874; Captain, 1881 and Rear-Admiral, 1896. He commanded the naval guard to Sir Garnet Wolseley at Cape Coast Castle in 1873 for his services in West Africa was awarded the Ashantee medal. Coomassie clasp. For a brief period, in 1893, Admiral Noel SEAR-ADMIRAL SIR G. H. U. NOEL. was Director of Naval Intelligence; and from the same year until January last was a Naval Lord of the Admiralty. For two years, from 1894 to 1896. he was an Aide-de-Oamp to the Queen. Sir Gerard Noel has been rom, Ua. connection with the recent Cretan operation*. « is undoubtedly due to his Arm initiative in avenging the murder of British sub- jects in that island that the final decision of the Powers was due. At the Mansion House banquet last week the Prime Minister paid unstinted tribute to the part this gallant naval officer has played in this connect ion. concluding with these words: "I believe that if we are able to restore to Europe a pacified and a well-administered Crete it will be due more to his individual action than to that of any living man."

HERO OF TWO HUNDRED KISSES. Deignan. one of the sailors who helped Lieu- tenant Hobson to sink the Merrimac, was entertained at dinner the other day in New York. On emerging from the restaurant he was sur- rounded by a bevy of fashionable ladies, who endea- voured to kiss hi Ill, but were prevented by his host. The wealthy and fashionable guests gazed with admiration at the sailor, who had the reputation of kissing 200 girls last week in Iowa.

A COLONIAL EXPERT. The late Sir George Baden-Powell had sat for the Kirkdale Division of Liverpool since 1885. He had studied the Empire in Victoria, in the West Indies, in South Africa, and even in Malta, and, as a natural consequence, was one of the firmest adherents of the THE LATE SIR G. BADEN-POWELL. Imperial idea. He had the great gift of being able to see for himself and to tell his countrymen what he had seen in language they could understand. If all members in Parliament had a tithe of his training in knowledge of the Empire, there would be but little resson to complain of the tone of debates in the House of Commons.
PRESERVE Tiin.Ni.-One of the most curious mouu- ments in Salisbury Cathedral is the life-size alabaster effigy of Sir John Cheyny, standard bearer of Henry VII. on the field of Bosworth. It has lain for nearly four centuries over the tomb of this famous warrior, and in that time hundreds of idle visitors have scratched their names on the alabaster. The armour, the helmet, the face, even to the closed eyes, are covered by this strange tracery there is not' an inch of the recumbent statue which does not bear the name of some ill-bred idler. It is a pitiable fact that the tourist of bad breeding, whether English, American, or German, delights in scribbling his name in every place which men of finer instinct hold sacred. In France, however, if he takes out his pencil, his guide is apt to point meaningly to a tiny sign bearing the letters M.H. which stand for Monument Historique," and mean that the antiquity, be it church, ruin, statue, or tomb, is under the cure and protection of the French Government. Sir Robert Hunter, in a late number of the Nuictrenlh Century, describes the care which France exercises over the places of historic interest or beauty within her domain. All fixed objects which are valuable from the point of view of art and history are protected by the Government. Without its consent the owner cannot repair, restore, or destroy them. If he neglects them, he is obliged to sell them to' France. By this course, all of the remaining landmarks in the history of France are preserved for the nation, no matter who may be their actual owners. In Italy and Spain objects of historic or artistic interest are protected by the State. By this course the public is taught the va(K« of sucb objects." Titz United States squadron, which is to pay a visit to European waters next year, will, it is expected, be anchored for some days at Spithead. In that event there will be a series of entertainments bythe civil, naval, and military authorities, including a ball on an exten- sive scale. A SUM of £ 75 has so far been subscribed in Swan- sea for the benefit of Mrs. Couch, widow of the chief officer of the recently wrecked Mohegan, and her three children, one of whom was born after the dis- aster. A tablet at the cost of £5 is to be erected to Mr. Couch's memory in the parish church. THE Imperial Tribunal of Leipzig has condemned a Frenchman named De Coq to six years' imprison- ment and 10 years' loss of civil rights and police supervision for betraying German military secrets. The Court took into consideration that De Coq was a professional spy, actuated purely by mercenary motives.
FOOTBALL. SWIFTS v. LIVERPOOL RESERVE. COMBINATION. This match was played at Liverpool in climatic conditions most suitable to this ideal pastime. The outcome of this visit was a foregone conclusion; it was merely a question of how many goals. The ult-seven goals to none-is not a creditable performance, although it might have feeen worse. The fact that Skipper Hughes was unable to don the jersey must, of course, be made allowance for. His namesake at half played a champion game, whilst the old veteran Malcolm Hersee in goal was a treat; indeed* with one notable exception, the team played ft good game, and one is not surprised to learii that a certain player was offered a positioa in the Liverpool team. The Swifts have to,meet Bangor on Saturday, on the home ground it is to be hoped that the Skipper and Malcolm Hersee will be available. Bangor have come on a lot since the first meeting this season, and are bound to give a good account of themselves. SWIFTS RESERVES v. FLINT RESERVES. WELSH JUNIOR CUP. "W' This, the first round of the Welsh Cup-tie, was played off on the homf ground, before an attendance that would have been consider- ably lessened had those who did attend known what an exhibition they were to be treated with. The visitors have my heartiest sympathy in their defeat on the day's play they thoroughly deserved win their com- bination in the last twenty minutes of the game was worthy of m&ny a first team. During the whole of tjie first forty-five minutes, the Swifts, by aheer weight alone, kept their opponents defence, and, aided by the wind, literacy bombarded the goal, and yet, thanks to the backs and cus- todian, half-time arrived lyith a clean sheet, and this in spite of a perifelty given against them. The second half was more evenly con- tested, the Swifts gainwg an undeserved victory by 2 goals to 1. ;f The officials on the field: were anything but edified by the exhibition, ind no doubt some drastic changes will be thl result. I abstain from specially naming a-<single player for oph play, but I shoulqJ. say one, at least, will have been paid off 9re this. Lunt, H. Williams, Welch, Roberts,jHughes, and a new player unknown to me, the pick of a poor lot. The little chapfe from Flint need not be discouraged, and had the homesters allowed the game to end in a draw, the visit to Flint would have been thorough defeat for the Swifts, judging frqø last Saturday's form. ? -),
THE" NOBLt ART." My remarks in this column, from time to time, on the difference in ^)rize-fighting and boxing, have had an object-lesson in the fatal termination of a gjjjlove fight at the National Sporting Club in London three weeks ago. The Recorder ^(Sir Charles Hall), in charging the Grand ^Jury at the Old Bailey, on Monday, referred to the lament- able result, and stated that the case was not a serious one, for, apparently, death resulted from a weak heart, and tlíÎs was proved b the medical evidence. I den't think I shAu be charged by those who know me of fcfeing mawkishly sentimental I have a vegy keen relish for sport of every description. The sad incident in connection with the above is only one of too many that have revealed the fero- city and brutality that underlie a great boxing competitions, and, no doubt, will jf&w result in legislative actictn. The question arises, What is Sport ? A couple of thousand years ago it was considered first-rate sjport to turn a muscular barbarian or a Captive Christian into the arena tdwage an unftaual contest with wild beasts, and to-day champion bull-fighters of Spain earn the income of an archbishop. It is not so long since that the pTize-figh-l in England was so popular with our Sristoc- racy, and it has been stated that ori%on3 memorable occasion in the Sixties," n Tom Sayers fought his greatest battle witfekj Heenan, that both Houses of Parliament were practically emptied. What should we say to-day if our legislators were to shirk their duties en masse to see a "prize-fight ? The utter impossibility of such, a thing indicates how far we have travelled since the Sixties." The travelling, it must beiÍ- admitted by the most sceptical of my readers, has been in the direction of greatly improving the sport. It is the isolated cases that g< £ to prove the rule. There can be no doubt tha, our sports to-day are purer and cleaner thaJever they were it is also true that we arefmore devoted to sport and athletics of all grinds than at any other period in our history. In fact, the danger is not that we pJaytoo little, but too much; and that we regarcfelay as an end in itself, instead of a meanto an end. Now, what I want to point out i| this,—the differ- ence between the gloves sps allowed by the law and used in some of ottr leading clubs in London and elsewhere, and the gloves used at our local Gymnasium and Victoria Club, is as great as there is between a penny pop- gun and a Colt's revolver. No one can deny, who has any knowledge of the subject, that boxing, fenced round with the necessary safe- guards, is an admirable pastime. That it is an excellent training for the muscle, nerve and temper, has been proved times without number. It is an essentially English exercise, and it has had amongsti its exponents thousands of men who regard prize-fighting as the basest form of blackguardism. The general enthusiasm for this noble art' has spread from the civil population to the military forces, and Lord Wolseley stated, some few years ago, when presenting the prizes in connection with a boxing com- petition at Chelsea Barracks, that he hoped that boxing would soon form part of every soldier's education." =; "¡;i'.i Now, my object in writing this article is to caution the budding aspirant, confident of his strength, and flushed with his last pitched battle with ;the bare knuckles, that skill in boxing doesot come naturally to him, and that if he dttires to become proficient in the art of bexiý, as he should be already in fencing, swimming, cricket, and football, then he should ta. lessons from some accredited master, and dfren then it will be only, as his instructor will point out, by assiduous prac- tice, imitation of well-chosen examples, and strict trainink (to be taken literally), that proficiency wOl be attained in what has been described as a "highly complicated and scientific The art cannot be learnt from books, except in theory, which will be found very different from the real ifehing, as was pointed out to me very clearly by Professor Taylor, who, in a lengthy a few days ago, proved very conclusively 1tat his Victoria Gymnasium, largely patronised by working men, was calculated to infuse into his clients a love for athletics and gymnastics that cannot help but be beneficial from a health point of view. I had an opportunity of witnessing the Pro- fessor and a pslpil of his—a very apt one by the way—go t&rough a course of training, in which dumb-b^ls, Indian clubs, single sticks, and the glovds, were used. I declined the offer to try thetter on. I thought I knew a little of the fnoble art," but if ever I start again I shall begin at the bottom rung of the ladder, and consent myself with punching the ball,—at all events, for a, few lessons. For those troubled ith too much superfluous fat, I was informed.by a well-known sport" in Llandudno, it was the best antidote he knew for reducing One point in particular I would especially point out to my numerous correspondents, for whose benefit I have indited these some- what lengthy "remarks. Learners should never lose a chAftce of sparring with the best men they can meet, in a friendly bout; they will always fincfthat the better the exponent the better tempered he will be, and the least likely to go in for slogging. Lovers of box- ing can claim for it that its influence on the physique and geeeral health of the body is only equalled by its teaching of endurance, fortitude, and generous forbearance. It should rightly/f therefore, be considered a most powerful ajent in the formation ef what is most desirable in our boys, that is—making ? them absolutely^" one of the best." t- ANSWERS TÖ CORRESPONDENTS. ,1- BAROMETER points out that the forecast for the summer seasdjn of 1898 was anything but promising, and is of opinion that the state- ments made have been falsified by stubborn facts; he inquires how the prophets draw their conclusion I am afraid I cannot answer your quert in the plural, but I can give you the authority of one, for his prophesy it was designated a weather cycle of nineteen years oUJ, invented to depress the hopes of the summer holiday-seekers. It was decidedly wet in 1880 and in 1879; therefore, it will be very wet in 1898. The inventor in this case ought to have gone back a little further the weather reports of 1841, 1822, 1803, and so on, back to 1765 do not confirm his theory. Perhaps other theories you may be equally dispelled. ^OEAKC H -LIGHT^^itt^i tes :—I have followed your notes from vl^^j|iiii 1f el, as a supporter of. wlfts that you deseihjjfc every credi^rf#r your efforts to instil into the minds .a^he Swiftly tie importance of train- in As a man abouf town, I have oppor- tunities of seeing ft e of the doings of the players off the fiel e men are subject to temptations, and fe wbf us could,withou t a little dizziness, sta adulations as they re-j ceive.

RURAL SPORTS.—Most certainly, no one can doubt for an instant the utility and im- portance of out door amusements in promot- ing health, and this alone ought to be sufficient to cause their encouragement. Of course, sports of all kinds should be used and not abused, let not the abuse of it be urged against its use, but do all you possibly can to weed them out as they assert themselves, and you will in due time be able to retire with a full conviction that you have had a share in promoting some of those sports of our country, of which you may well be proud. SABBATARIANISM.—I wish you had ad- dressed ýour inquiries to the Editor on this subject. l cannot see that the watering of streets oa the Sabbath comes under the heading jsf a Sports and Pastimes' column. I am notJn favour of cricket on the Sabbath, nor of street watering unless it is absolutely necessary the idea of knocking off at 9.30 is absurd, fttr better leave it alone, the garb- I age gatherers might be able to finish, but you can't expect to control the dust for the day if ypu stop watering at 9.30. The in- habitants who live near churches have long contended that church bell-ringing might very well be dispensed with every day, in- cluding^undays. Dick Whittington did not think seJ. It might be possible to have a conscience clause" and a. notice sent out with thfe rates stating that those who ob- jected to the Sunday labour might attend at the office and swear on oath their conscience would not allow them to pay it; but then there see others who might object to paying other r.tes on the same grounds. I may be in the Wrong, but if it's wrong to water the streets Qn the Sabbath day, then it's wrong on a wk-day, and the wrong on the week- day is that some people might and do con- sider it £ a wicked waste.

COWLYD WATER BOARD. Mr. Hugi Owen (chairman) presided at a meeting of. this Board at Colwyn Bay on Friday. I. Dr. Pritchard (Conway) moved that the following resolution passed by the Board be rescinded :—" That the Board take over the mains from Sarn Mynach to Llysfaen, Pen- sarn to Penthyn, and Junction to Degauwy, such mains being in the joint Board s district, that an independent valuation be made by an independent valuer, and that an applica- tion be made to the Local Government Board to amend the Provisional Order. Mr. John Roberts, who seconded, said that the Colwyn Bay Council quite agreed that the award was binding. The different dis- tricts should convey and distribute the water for theirdiffereut requirement- in their districts. The Rev. Thomas Parry supported the motion, and it- was carried A letter was read from the Local Govern- ment Board, in reply to the application made by the Board in accordance with the resolution rescinded, asking to be informed of the circumstances which gave rise to the application. Mr. John Roberts (chairman of the Colwyn Bay Council) asked how Colwyn Bay was to repay its portion. Should they raise the money direct, or would the Board raise it for them to pay principal and interest every year. The Clerk replied that it would he raised as an extra charge and paid to that Board. In reply to a member, he added that the valuation was as follows :—Colwyn Bay, £í,OOO, rural district Cowlyd Board £1,000. The Rev. Thomas Parry moved that all the constituent authorities make application to the Local Government Board for permission to borrow the respective amounts. Mr. William Davies seconded, and it was carried. It was also decided that the Board should have a detailed statement of the amount each district had to raise. Mr. Farrington, the Boards engineer, wrote with reference to his claici on the Board. It was agreed to hold a, special I meeting next Friday to go into the claim fully.
