It is now officially stated that the Cunard express keaTner Mauretania, which left New York on Wednesday for Liverpool, will begin the company's new arrangement by calling (after leaving Q neons town) at Fishguard, where she will land London and! Continental-bound passengers She is expected at Fishguard r ext Monday. The Caronia, the Campania the Lusitania, land the Cavmania, which are to leave New York on dates from August 28th to Septem- ber 11th, will also call at Fishguard, and after that all the Cunard company's eastwaxid, bound steamers from New York will make calls both at Queenstown and Fishguard. The Bos- ton liners will be excepted from the new ar- rangement; they will still rail at Queenstown. From Fishguard a special train will convey passengers to London in 4 hours. Rumour has it that the Great Western Rail- way Company and the Cunard Companiy are, in the interests of Continental tourists, negoti- ating for special trains to run from Fish- guard to Dover in connection with the Trans- atlantic lines. UNSTAMPED TAPE MEASURE. At Ruthin on Monday the Inspector of Weights and Measures for Denbighshire (Mr J. Clarke-Jones) laid before the magistrates a rather mnoammon case, the first of its kind heard in the county. Max Cohen, of Chester, w.as charged with using an unstamped tape measure at Ruthin. Evidence was given that the defendant was in charge of a stall at the market and used the tape in the course of his business. Mr Clarke Jones said that such tapes w.re always unreliable, and therefore could not be stamped. The defence was that the tape was used to measure the collars of blouses, but not to measure garments, for which pur- pose a yard measure was used. Owing to the want of corroborative evidence the case was dismissed. THE "CARNARVON" CRUISER. When in 1905 the county of Carnarvon made the presentation of a silver shieldi and other gifts to His Majesty's cruiser wmich ic named after the county a promise was made that at 'no distant date the vessel should visit Welsh waters. We understand that such a visit has been arranged to take place on the 17th and 18th of September, Holyhead being the port selected for the call. Advantage will be taken of the occasion to make a formal pre- sentation in the name of Carnarvonshire, and with that end in view the County Committee which originally had the matter in hand has been revived. WELSH M.P. THE, WORSE FOR WEAR. Mr J. D. Rees, M.P., has sent a letter to his constituents stating th.aft he is "somewhat the worse for wear," allld therefore has paired for the Government on the Irish Land Bill. "And I am going to the Highlands," con- tinues the Liberal member far the Montgomery Boroughs, "to some of that land which cer- tainly will not be charged with undeveloped land tax, is not even capable of cultivation, and the use of which for sporting purposes brings 'nto the coffers of the county in which it is situated nearly all its reveniue in rates, and also brings in the money that is spent and nearly all such employment as offers in the sparsely populitsd and wilder regions of Rosshire." o LLANFAIRFEOHAN REGATTA.
