THE DELIVERY OF GOODS AT TREBORTH. IMPORTANT JUDGMENT BY SIR HORATIO LLOYD. Sir Horatio Lloyd on Monday, at the Bangor County Court, gave judgment in an action heard on May 20th bet-weei-i Xx H. C. Vincent, solicitor, Bangor, and the London and North- Wester Railway Company for damages owing to the refusal of the Company to deliver goods at Treborth station, on the line from Menai Bridge to Carnarvon. His Honour said: The action is brought by the plaintiff, Mr Vincent, to recover damages from the defendants on particulars of demand which alleged* that "the defendants are bound by statute to deliver all goods and articles of merchandise at 11reborth station, but have re- fused and still refuse so to do, in consequence whereof plaintiff has suffered damage to the extent of R.24 16904 3d. extra costs of cartage of materials from Bangor and 'Menai Bridge to Treborth." The material facts are that in February, 1851, Mrs Mary Crawley, who at that time owned land at Treborth, entered into an agreement with a Mr Munt (on be- half of a company which was incorporated in that year to construct a railway from Bangor to Carnarvon, which was in 1854 merged in the Chester and Holyhead Railway and eventually in the defendant Company) for the sale of a portion of her land at Treborth for the pur- poses of the then intended railway. That agreement contained a proviso to the follow- ing effect :Aud the said Munt doth hereby on behalf of The-said Company expressly agree with the said ME. Crawley, her heirs and assigns, and the said Company will make and continue the station hereinafter mentioned, and that in the bill incorporating the Company shall be inserted a special clause obliging the Company to construct and from and after the formation of the railway, etc.. maintain and use for the stoppage and convenience of all trains other than and except special express and mail trains the station, agreed to be made." etc. There was also a provision in the agreement for the sale of land for the purpose of making a roadway for carriages and horsey to be open to thp public as well as to the syaad M. Crawley, her^ heirs and assigns. The Jfbad- way leads to th'e station at Treborth. The railway was authorised by an Act ed in 1851, and the clatises were iliserred-.A-,iiig the rights of M. Crawley under the ^'agreement. Clause 45 enact3H-"That nothing shall pre- judice or affect the agreement/'but that all the clauses and provisions theof shall as be- tween her and the said Comjginy be binding," etc. Clause 46 is as follows ^In making this railway the Company shalSfnd are hereby re- ps quired to erect, eciastru "?and build and for ever repair and iBfeintaii^in, at, or upon lands of the said M. Crawley, or near the spot pro- vided by the said agifcement and the plan annexed thereto, -a proper .station, with all necessary building, f, conveniences, and ap- proaches, thereto J^cr the stoppage, con- venience, and tise w all trains (except special, express, or mail t^ins>, to stop a convenient time for thtf purp«e of taking up and deposit- ing passengers, Jjorses, cattle, goods, and articles of merchandise." Certain land at Tre- borth which at tjffc.time of this legislation was the property ofjftf. Crawley has since become vested in the pmiatiff, and he required the de- fendants to de sit at Treborth station certain goods which la required in the building of a house at Treborth on land formerly belonging to M. Crawley He wrote to the defendants on August 3rd, 99, requiring this service, and received a rep from them on August 4th, 1899, practically re: jsing. In consequence of the defendants re* using to deposit the goods at Treborth stati n the plaintiff carted them, some from M at Bridge and some from Ban- gor. and the amount claimed was the expenses he had to p for cartage beyond what it would have c t him to cart from Treborth station. The a ion is founded on the breach of the statutoryldQty imposed upon the defen- dants to stop trine at Treborth station for the purpose of depoitjng their goods and articles of merchandise. t was contended on behalf of the Company isLit the plaintiff's remedy, if any, was by appli tiou to the Hailway Com- missioners. They %so referred, to the case of the East London Bisjjjway Company and White- church and the obsecrations of Lord Cairns as to special clauses of Arrangement introduced into railway Acts. I 4A find nothing there which materially affects 'the position taken up by the plaintiff in this attion, nor do I think that another case cited by defendants' coun- sel—Countess of Rothes and\Kirkcaldy- Com- missioners-in any way con^cts with the plaintiff's contention in the pnt action. It was also urged on the part of the(-,defen(lants that clause 45 of the Act of 1851 was confined to Mary Crawley and the Company, and that M. Crawley was the only person who could I have expressed the*, agreement, and that the plantiff had no such right. But the clause enacts that iaothiiigiii the Act shall prejudice or affect the, agreenfipnt. made between M. Crawley and the Company, and that it shall be binding according to the true intent and effect thereof, anything in the Act contained to the contrary notwithstanding. That agree- ment is made between M. Crawley, her heirs, and assigns and the Company, and nothing in the Act is to prejudice or limit the effect of the agreement. The defendants contend that they have fulfilled their duty in making the station and stopping the required trains. But the Act (clause 46) requires them "to stop a convenient time at such station for the pur- pose of taking up and depositing passengers, horses, cattle, goods, aftd articles of mer- chandise." And this, so far as the goods in question are concerned, they refused to do. It is admitted that the defendants have not constructed any sidings or unloading places other than the ordinary platform at Treborth station, and they called witnesses to show that at the time of the construction of the station the requirements of the district were very limited, and that there has been no very great increase since that time. This does net appear to me to affect the question now raised, as to the statutory duty. In the case of Hood v. North-Eastern Company the Company had built a station sufficient for the then purposes of the traffic, but owing to the development of the railway it was alleged that a larger station was required. The Court refused to compel the Company fo build a larger station, inas- much as the existing station had not been ob- jected to for is £ iny years, and it appeared that the passengers were not, numerous. But the plaintiff in th present case is not asking for a larger station or additional accommodation. What he requires is that the Company shall fulfil the dut originally imposed upon them by the statue;* of stopping the trains for the purpose of depositing goods and articles of merchandise, and this they may do so far as the plaintiff is concerned in any way they please with their existing arrangements. In the 33rd clause of the Act of 1851, which pro- vides tolls which the Company may lawfully demand for the use of the railway, "articles of merchandise" are enumerated, and among them are "eeals, stones for building, bricks, tiles, slates, etc., or other articles of merchan- dise." I thitk, therefore, that there is a statutory obligation on the defendants to stop the trains. fat the purpose of depositing the goods in qtsestion, and that the plaintiff is entitled to recover the damages he has sus- tained, and to maintain this action in respect of the refusal on the part of the defendants to fulfil this Statutory duty. Judgment will, therefore, bel entered for the amount claimed, with costs. Mr Fennaf1 of Liverpool, the Railway Com- pany's solicitor for .the district, appeared on behalf of th Company to hear the judgment, which, he stated, he should submit to the Company's Solicitor in London. Mr Vincent asked that his' Honour should make the necessary certificates for counsel. His Honour: Yes. I
Deatlt of Mr. E. P. Jones. The death tcck place on Saturday, at Bryn Estyn, Rhyli of Mr E. P. Jones, chairman of the Rhyl Urban Council. Mr Jones, who was 71 years of age, had been ailing for some time, but h& was able to attend the town's harvest thanksgiving service as late as the 26th ult. He was known in North Wales as the head of the firm of Messrs E. P. Jones, Son, and Co*, grocers, who have branches in Llandudno $td all parts of the northern por- tion of the Principaltiy. In connection with the Calvinistic Methodists he was a leading member, and his name was familiar to that body throughout Wales. He recently gave £11000 to the Calvinistic Methodist Centenary Fund. He was elected to the Rhyl Council at a by-election several years ago, and was un- opposed at the last, triennial contest. He wat a staunch Liberal, but wag respected' and esteemed by all sections.
Bangor and the Eisteddfod Pavilion. <W ————— The Comé of the National Eisteddfod of 1902 fiiift.itself face to face with even greater jftftculties than most eisteddfod com- mittees have had to cope with in the matter of providing a pavilion for the great national gathering. Several leading citizens of Bangor riilave long regarded the holding of the Eistedd- fod of 1902 in that city as an occasion for the erection of a permanent structure which would serve at once as a town hall and as a building for the accommodation of a large county or national meetings such as Carnarvon has acquired. Carnarvon secured its huge pavilion when the Eisteddfod was invited to' the t-own some years ago, and the county town has enjoyed almost a monopoly of large represen- tative gatherings ever since. Bangor ap- parently does not desire a building of quite the enormous proportions of, or of precisely similar artistio design to, that at Carnarvph, but the city fails to see why all big meetings should inevitably be held in Carnarvon. With a view to adjusting the balance betweeii the two towns in this respect a joint appeal was recently made to the citizens of Bangor by the City Council and the Eisteddfod Committee, inviting them to subscribe a capital fund of £6,000 towards the erection of a permanent pavilion. The response to this appeal has been so feeble ithat the project has now all but been abandoned, and the Eisteddfod Committee is left to seek for a site for a temporary structure of the usual flimsy eisteddfodic type. To add to the Committee's difficulties, suitable sites for a building of this kind are in Bangor tery few and very expensive, and it would now appear that whft is every year the chief and most unprofitable item of eisteddfod expendi- ture islikely to be heavier than usual in con- nection with the Eisteddfod of 1902.
Railway Accident near Festiniog. An alarming accident occurred on the Festiniog narrow gauge railway, near Tany- bwlch, on Friday night. Shortly after leaving the tunnel, the 0 15 train from Festiniog, con- taining some 20 passengers, got derailed in r rounding a curve. The whole train slid off 051" the precipice side of the line, and came withfii a short distance of falling over the cliff. A message was telephoned to Portmadoc, -v the other terminus, for a train to take the pas- sengers, and the latter reached their Westina- tion some three hours' lajte. The derailment is ascribed to a gradual widening of flie gauge, which normanly is 1ft. 11* in. Jfee gangers were at work all night, but were unable to get the line clear on Saturday morning. The stop page of traffic caused considerable incon- venience. Eat Edwards' Biead, jtfie food par excellence for the million.

Bishop's Pastoral Letter. -i!iio- The following letter his been addressed by the Bishop of Bangor to the clergy and laity of the Diocese (of which Llandudno parish forms a part.) on behalf of 1. Cnurch Exten- sion Society; 2, Clerical Augmentation Fund; 3, Queen Victoria Clergy Fund: Glyngarth Palace, Menai Bridge, September 20th, 1901. My dear Brethren,—Clergy and Laity of the Diocese of Bangor. After prolonged and anxious consultation with Clergy and Laymen in all parts of the Diocese, I feel constrained to make known two great and pressing needs for the efficient carrying on, of the wotk of the Church. (1) For the last 32 years, many poor and populous districts have been dependent for their spiritual ministtions on Clergy whose stipends have been m *w: ly paid by the Bangor Diocesan Church Extension Society. The in- come of this Society is insufficient. The Com- mittee have been obliged at recent meetings not only to refuse pressing applications for help where help is utidoubtedly needed, but also to contemplate the possibility of having to give up existing 9rbrk where it is full of promise. An idea of the present state of things may be gathered frova the fact that 268 places of worship have to be served by about 192 Clergy, reinforced by a few Lay Readers. In some of these places, owing to the bilingual difficulty, four services ought to be held each Sunday. This doel not take into account a considerable number of hamlets which have come into existence during the last few years on the seaside and in the neighbourhood of mines and quarries, and which at present con- tain no Church building for public worship. To enable this society to carry on its work properly, a capital um of £6,000 ought to be raised, and the present annual income from subscriptions and offertories ought to be very much increased. (2) The second pressing need of the diocese is an increase in the present very inadequate stipends of the beneficed Clergy. This has been a reproach to the Diocese of Bangor for over 300 years. The labourer is worthy of his hire, and in all tjfrork an inadequate stipend must tend to inefficiency. Parents will not encourage their 3tois to enter Holy Orders un- :les& see son^ an adequate maintenance. The laity desireTafWte rightly so, a hig)¡ standard of learning, cul- ture, and behaviour in their minister. When- ever a benefice wecomes vacant, the patron is expected to send a. man of some culture and ability to fill tht place, the value of many of these benefices Jiteing such that no curate of experience can ipcept them without loss of in- come. To thisust be added the discourage- ment in his wdrk, and the loss of respect, which is so ofteBt the lot of a Clergyman whose energies are chflled and repressed by penury. The flock who lire dependent on him for their spiritual instruction and tone are necessarily ttte chief suffe ,,rs from this state of things. JSome advance to remedy this has been made by the BangoClerical Augmentation Fund, Initiated in 18&t by my revered predecessor, Bishop Lloyd. From its commencement un- der his auspiefs to the present the Fund has assisted 22 pofr benefices- by grants amount- ing in all to attout 44,000, which, by means of the scheme adopted, has resulted in a per- manent annual increase in their income of about 418 on ifcn average. There are, however, still about 70 benefices in the diocese under £ 200 a year n £ |; of these there are 50 not ex- ceeding £ 1S0? »ot exceeding £ 130; and five j not amounting to £ 100 a yfcfcr* It has besen roughly estimated that a sum I)t &KOOO or Z60,OW will pe inecessary to britegi iip e annual value pi all the benefices to E200 net. The work soell begun JL&s, now come almost to a standstill owing to the complete exhaus- tion of the fùØ. The period over which the larger coatrfftitions were promised expires this jye&r, an(f if the work, hitherto so success- frui, is to be aiiitained, it becomes necessary to appeal fodDew annual subscriptions, dona- tions, and CIiurchi offertories. An alternative mode of assisting in this work is that dopted by the Queen Victoria Clergy Fundj- Diocesan contributions to this fund are augmented by proportionate block grants from tke Central Fund, and the amount thus realise is distributed in annual grants to the most I-serving Incumbents. It had beet) intended to issue this appeal last year, b it was postponed owing to the pressing and jprgent calls upon the country on account of t war. I trust, however, that after providing forjurgent local needs, the liberality of Church ptgbple will secure adequate pro- vision for thssential Diocesan organisations to which I w invite your attention. y ir faithful servant in Christ, | WATKIN BANGOR. i ti
A Curious Railway Case at I Bang-or. At the Ban«>r Petty Sessions 011 Tuesday, before Mr Hao|y Clegg and other magistrates, David Thomasi, from Blaenau Festiniog, was summoned* for| travelling on the London and North-Western Irailway from Llandudno Junc- tion to without, paying his fare, and with intent to Sefraud the Company. Mr Fenna, in|cpening the case for the Com- pany, said tt .the circumstancesl were peculiar. The, efendaiit came to Bangor, and., handed to the jfcollector when he was le^vitrj?*' the station a tiAet, from Liverpool t^.Sf'eenore, saying he was fiot going to (it-ew^re, and that he had given^^ribffl^tlfier half of the ticket j&t Jwnction. Inquiries were made, and it was that man named John S. Staines, of I Formby, had purchased a tourist ticket ffr Greenore at Liverpool, and had given Thoiftas the half which he used to come to Bangoi. Mr Fenna pointed out that these cheap tickets between Liverpool and Grenore were a great boon to travellers, and ought not becfuse they were cheap to be abused. | Mr Harry CIEfg: They are not of much benefit to this district.—(Laughter.) Mr Fenna saiB they were cheaper than the tickets from L^erpcol to Bangor, and that was why they \|ere so much sought after. Detective Hugles, of Bangor, swore that he went to the defendant at Festiniog, and that he told him thai the ticket he had given up at Bangor had Ifeen given him by Mr Staines. He also offere(I to pay the money, but the witness declined to accept it. Detective Helve, of Liverpool, said that he also saw Staiiie at Formby, and that he ad- mitted having 4veii the ticket to Thomas. He took the ticket from Liverpool to Greenore. but as he, did lipt travel further than Llau- dudno Junction lie1 handed it over to Thomas. He also offered lo pay the difference. The Bench imposed a fine of 5s. and costs, and mulcted Staiiies in a. similar amount for aiding and abetting Thomas.

Alleged tra ud, on Creditors. r -+- On Friday at RhylJ"before Dr. Girdlestone and other qiagisUktes, Charles Atkinson I. y Dearden, now'*s* ng at Lower Penrhynside, appeared on T^iiyifed charged with having ob- tained, under jSe false pretence that he can ried on busil, s, a cutting-off table and mixer conveyor, ,frOInMessrs T. C. Fawcett, Limited, of Lee<Js, witfcln four months of his bank- ruptcy. Mr H. Foster, solicitor, Leeds, in- structed by tliJ Treasury, appeared for the prosecution, iflftd Mr F. J. Gamlin of Rhyl, defended. Mr Foster ilid that between December and March last the accused carried on business at tfee brickyar near Mostyn, but it was now alleged that ihe business was merely carried on for tll$[ gattpose of obtaining credit. Before December i accused worked as a mechanic at Rhuddlaiv i&#a weekly wage of 24s. Pre- vious to th- heofterked in Manchester for a much bette 'wage, atwjL he was able to save £ 150. The defendant aitted at his examina- tion in baukruptcy t11't he had not the slightest knledge of bri4making or brick- making plajoi;. The receivinjj|order was made in May, anil' the adjudicationWrder in June. The defendant obtained bricks^aaking plant and materials to the amount of yearly E3,000, for which j&ot a single penny\was paid. Although ttojs machinery had beea obtained, net a singly brick had been made. Several witnesses were called in |upport of the opening; Statement. | The defendant pleaded not guilty, tnd said he entered "into an agreement with Mr E. A. Evans, builder, Colwyn Bay, to buy the brick- works for £tQ59 in September, 1900. He spent a lot of md|iey in putting the work| in order, and thinkiiig it would be a good speculation, he ordered #Ome machinery. He hkd a bank- ing account; at Rhyl, but, it neve/ exceeded £ 25. He atjjjgttitted that he had maced orders for machin^ty amounting to £$735 13s. 6d., but he didijj^ot. think he owedjlill that. Mr Fosters You admit you<%ad no capital. How did yffl expect to pay i'our creditors ? The defendant: Partly/ by the help of friends anc^from what^TC made out of the bricks. Did you tig your- gfeditcrs that you thought it was a golft min^f—No; I said it would turn out a gold Sbyire if it was properly worked. The defejppint was committed to take his trial at; Quarter Sessions. Bail was alU^r«d in sureties of £ 25. ■<v* :i
m The Ifjemoval of Sheep in Denbighshire. It REMARKABLE POLICE COURT CASES. 'it- A matter of portance to farmers and sheep dealers was alt with on Friday at the Den- bigh BorougMPolice Court, before the Mayor (Mr A. Lloyd, ones) and other magistrates. Nineteen far s, amongst them being some of the leading agriculturists in the Vale of Clwyd, appeared in wer to summonses for having removed sheepfon the 10th of September with- out the form f|f declaration prescribed in a County Council| order which came into force on the 18th 0 August. In the first case Griffith Jones, glwyswen Farm, was sum- moned for liavia ;g taken a number of sheep to Tyddyn Isaf Fa (m, Henllan, without a de- claration. Mr Evans, for^! the defence, contended that. the defendant s guilty of no offence what- ever, inasmuch is, he did nothing more than remove the sheewto another part of his land situated seme distance off. The order pre* scribed that sheOT> were not. to be removed to "market, fair, cw any other place." The whole case depended upon the meaning to be given to the term|"other place." The de- fendant was not. tsacing the sheep to a Smith- field, a show place,|or an auction mart, which undoubtedly were flhe "places" intended by the order. Before (^nvicting the defendant the County Council hould be asked to define the term "any otherlplace." The magistrates detided to adjourn the case, and instructed their Clerk to communicate with the Clerk of the. Peace as to the proper meaning to be put on the term mentioned. In the remaining cases all the defendants pleaded guilty to having removed shfcep, but explained that they were ignorant of the exist- ence of the order. Mr Thomas, Park Mostyn, hfenself a justice of the peace, and whose bailii was charged with the offence, said it would-be a gross in- justice if the Bench imposed fine in these cases. He complained of the fray in which the order was distributed in 4e district, and urged that all similar noticef affecting the removal of sheep should bejsent out in the form of handbills and place in the. hands of each farmer and dealer. Ilider the present system the whole thing wai simply a trap into which the owners of ^beep fell in total ignorance of their position, v Mr P. E. Storey, Dentfjgh, another de. fendant, and an ex-membJfc of the County Council, spofce strongly on.^he present mode of circulating the orders of the Council. Per- ¡ sonally he had never see r heard anything of the notice in 'question. M was not sufficient to place a noftice on the wsfclls here and there, and for himself he wouk|pather go to penal servitude than be compe|»d to read every public notice that appeaJll on the walls.— (Applause in Court.) ought really to have been placed in |he hands of each farmer and dealer, and if he police had been instructed to make the nmice as public as it ought to have been not of cf the cases would have been brought befoqjfthe Court. There were plenty of policeme about the country, and it would be easy for ilem, if they thought fit, to make known whe|| any such order as the one in question cam* into force. The Mayor, after consi^ing his colleagues, said they quite agreed wih the remarks made. The notices ought certaii to have been given greater publicity, and a presentation to that effect would be made f n the Bench to the Clerk of the Peace.—(Help, hear.) The defendants were feen fined d. per sheep, and the costs wer limited in each case to 5s. 1| Great amusements was laused by the appear- ance as a defendant of m W. G. Rigby, who is a member of the Coun Council and of the committee through who instrumentality the order was issued. £ Mr Rigby said he had w excuse to make, and smilingly paid the penal

THE MOST NUTRITIOUS. E P P S S GRATE!FUL-COMFORTING. I* COCOA MEAKFAST AND SUPPER,
Three Hundred tears Old, and Still ing. At quaint old Castlet n (the "metropolis" of the Isle of Man) therewaxists a very interest- ing clock, which has ri performed its, func- tions of time-telling duffu five centuries. A writer in the "New PeniJ^ Magazine" says that it was presented by Quifen Elizabeth in the year 1597 to Castle Rushjfci, the fortress which stands in the middle If Castletown, from which the town takes iW name. The works are crude, being driven 4>y ropes'and pulleys, but nevertheless they kJp excellent time. The clock, in fact, has run «er since it was built, except for rare stoppagj for repairs. To this h day the single hand hich travels slowly round the dial outside Ithe tower of Castle b Rushen is the princpa ource of information 0 as to the hour to the nhabitants of Castle- town. A timepiece wflich has worked con. tinuously for more than three hundred years is something of a curiosity.

J £ neei8haw and other magis- trates on Monday Did Morgan, Penmaen- mawr, was chargjeds with an assault on his wife, who asked jo, a separation order.

They had bl married twelve months, and for a considjfrable part ;of that time he had been in the 4bit of taking her a cup of tea to bed six mowings a week. The assault was the result of, rovocatioii. Out the day it was committed Ms wife was in an "awful" temper, and ever limce their marriage her parents had treated him as nothing better than a dog.

'■ The Bench fined the defendant 20s. and costs for an aggravated assault, and bound him over in his own recognisances to be of good behaviour. CRUELTY- TO ANIMALS.
