LOCAL NOTES. CLERGYMEN AND BUSINESS. Clergymen and ministers of religion gener- ally have for so long been regarded as merely fingerposts directing mankind as to the right path to take on its journey to "that bourne from which no traveller returns" that it will come as a very welcome surprise to find that when they do condescend to think of mundane affairs they are capable of giving sound, sensible advice to those with whom they would fain foregather in the world beyond the' veil. We make no apology therefore for directing the attention of our readers to an article written by the Rev. O. Pendbck Banks, rector of Deal, which we publish in another column, and which was read at a recent gathering of the Llandudno Grocers' Association. THE! CREDIT' SYSTEM. That the clerical writer is alive to the dan- gers of the credit system is very evident, and his appeal for prompt settlement of accounts is a timely -one. There is one, phase of the question, however, which he, has not touched, ,and that is the manner in which the system affects the oonsumer. Under the' credit system bad debts are bound to be made, and these in the long run have to bei made good by the consumer. Tradesmen can not afford to write the account off their books, the margin between cost and selling price being generally a very narrow one. Consequently prices go up, all round, and the wise buyer would do well to steer clear of any business establish- ment giving indiscriminate credit. It is to. be feared! that tradesmen generally do not en- courage cash buyers to the extent they should, and very often it will be found that the man who runs a weekly, monthly or quarterly account (and pays promptly) buys on far better terms than he who pays in cash for every pur- chase, especially if those purchases are small ones. The periodical payer, when settling his account invariably geits a discount which the other but vary seldom receives unless the payment is a comparatively large one. We would commend this suggestion to' our local tradesmen, in the hope that they will take iDJtü consideration how the cash buyer may be placed on an equal footing to the other. SHOPPING OUT OF TOWN. It appeafrs to us that this evil may be toi a ,great extent re-moved' if tradesmen would seek to convince those people who, buy out of town that it is to their interest not to do so. Surely it should not be very difficult to prove tOo any one possessing a little common sense that every sovereign sent out of the community im- poverishes the town to a certain extent, that extent being the difference between the cost price of the-article to the trader and that which he has a reasonable right to charge the consumer as the medium between him or her and the manufacturer. How best to do this would be a very suitable subject for delibera- tion by the tradesmen at their next gathering. LLANDUDNO AND THE COUNTY COUNCIL. We learn that the request made by Llandudno Council that the parade between Vaughan Street and the Little Orme should be taken over by the County Council and, maintained by that authority will be the subject of a local inquiry in the near future. A commission has been appointed to hear evidence in the matter, and the result of the application will in the main depend on the amount of evidence Llan- dudnoi Council is able to bring forward to sup- port their request. Any assistance ratepayers ,can offer should therefore be volunteered forthwith in ordter that no loophole may be allowed through which the County Council may escape the granting of so reasonable a request.
LLANDUDNO NIGHT SCHOOLS. CLASSES TO BE HELD AT LLOYD STREET SCHOOLS. The Carnarvonshire Education Committee are anxious to develop and improve the nlight schools of the county, and with the view to obtaining best local advice as to the kind of classes required anid to securing the co-opera- t-ion of the local school managers they directed that in each centre, in the, county a general meeting of managers should be called to con- sider the requirements of thei school district in regard to eive,ning schools, and to report to' the Education Committee as to the subjects in which classes should be commenced, and the probable number of students which might be expected). The managers were also asked to recommend the most suitable school in the district for the holding of the classes. It was further desired that the managers of both classes of schools, provided and non-provided school be invited to take part in these delibera- tions. The meeting for the Llandludno area was held on Friday night, having been summoned by Mr D. W. Thomas, the head master of the Lloyd Street Council School. Mr W. H. Jones, the chairman of the Urban District Council, presiided. It was. explained by Mr Thomas that no class- should be begun unless (there were twenty students entered, and that unless 70 per cent, attended the class should be closed. The evening school at Llandudno last year was, however, so successful that 99.9 per e-ent of those entered attended. The Welsh class had to be dropped, however, because it fell below the; prescribed number. On the motion of Mr R. J. Williams it was decided to recommend that the s.chool be held at Lloyd Street, and that the ,subjects should include arithmetic and mensuration, English composition, shorthand, bookkeeping, and dressmaking. THE TEACHING OF WELSH. The question was then discussed as to whether there should be another attempt to get together a Welsh class, and after a long debate a motion to the effect that Welsh he included as a. subject was put and carried by a large majority, the Rector and Mr Conway voting against it, the former explaining that he sup- ported Mr Conway because he hardly thought the subject would be seriously taken up. On the motion of Mr Conway, ,seconded by Mr R. J. Williams, a resolution was unani- mously passed recommending the Education Committee, in the appointment of teachers for the evening classes, to consider the, claims of the teachers of non-provided schools as well as of those of the provided schools.
SEQUEL TO MOTOR COLLISION. CONFLICTING EVIDENCE AT CONWAY COUNTY COURT. A motor car collision which occurred arli Sarn Mynach, occupiad the attention of his Honour Judge Moss at Conway County Coutrt on Monday. On June 18th a small motor-car maintained by Messrs Underwood and Brother, con- tractors, for the use of their engineering staff, was proceeding from Rhos, Colwyn Bay, to- wards Glanconwy, when, at Sarn Mynach, whete, the main road joins with that from Con- way and Llandudno, it collidted with a motor charabanc belonging to the Llandudno Motor and Garage Company, Limited. Messrs Under- wod and Brother claimed from the Motox and Garage Company P,23 18s. damages which re- sulted from the accident, and the Company c-ounterclaamed for R,9 8s. from the owners of the car. Dr. Atkinson, instructed by Messrs B-oote and Edgar, of Manchester, appeared fosr Messrs Underwood, and Mr Gordon Hewart, instructed by Messrs Bone and Lucas, of Col- wyn Bay and Llandudno, for the Motor Com- pany. Atkinson said that the parties had agreed as to the amount df the damages claim- ed by either side, and his Honour had only to decide the question of responsibility. The plaintiffs, at the time, were doing certain drainage works near Rhos, and were also lay- ing a water main in the Vale of Conway. The motor used by their engineers was an eight- horse power two-seater, and had a single ,cylinder. The engineers were going from Rhos to Talycafn, and at this dangerous corner the engine was cut off and the sharp curve was ap- proached at four or five miles an hour, and the motor kept very close- to the high wall on the left. Suddenly the charabanc appeared bearing down upon the small motor, and the collision occurred. One of the engineers took careful measurements, and a plhotographer was sent for from Conway to take photographs showing the position of the car before it was moved. This evidence showed that the can- was but a foot from the wall, and that the. rear wheel of the -charabanc was at the point of the .collision 5ft. from the wall. The case-, in fact, turned1 upon who was on the wrong or the right side of the road. The natural tendency of the small oar would be to keep to the left as the curve in the road was to the left, whilst he was afraid it was a natural thing for a driver approaching the curve from the ,other direction to try to cut the corner. On the motor charabanc were 17 persons, the Mayor and Corporation of Morley. On the small car were two engineers and the driver, and some measuring instruments. The witnesses for the plaintiffs were Mr J. R. Crisp and Mr Samuel Heap, the engineer and his assistant. Evidence was given by F. W. Smith, the driver. Mr Hewart then called evidence for the de- fence. Arthur Henry Fry, driver and mechanic, who said he was deriving the charabanc, was first called. He said that he had ten years' experience of driving and had never been summoned for any offenc.e.. On the day in question he was driving the Mayor and Cor- poration of Morley from Barmouth to Chester. He came round the curve- in the centre of the road, very slowly, and the ismall car approach- ed at about 14 miles an hour, too fast to negotiate the turn properly. It ran into the charabanc, collided with his front wheel re- bounded, and plunged forward towards the wall, where it (Stopped. As soon as he saw it he saw he could not altogether pull up, so he turned towards the road to Llandudno, and left plenty -of room for a careful driver to pass between him and the wall. In approaching the curve he kept to the middle of the road because, the vehicle being so heavy, the wheels would have sunk into the trench which had recently been made along the side of the road. The collision bent the spindle of the section of his steering column, which had to. be put right before he could go on. Evidence was given in support of Fry's statement by a member of the Morley Corpora- tion, who took independent measurements. His Honour commented upon the dangerous character of the corner, and in view of the conflicting evidence given by witnesses on both sides entitled toi credence he nonsuited the plaintiffs on the claim and the defendants on the counter-claim, each party to pay their own costs.
