FISHGUARD. A Resolution Cart-ied.-At the Board of Guardians last week the resolution brought by Mr W George James, Llysoronen, was carried. It was as follows That this Board draws the attention of the Poor Law Conference to the desirability of promoting a better system of communication between the Relieving Officers of the several Unions in England and Wales, and that they be in- structed, when any q lestion or enquiry is made by a brother ofEcer, to use every endeav- our to give reliable information,"—Mr James said he regarded himself as being fortunate in having the tesolution on the agenda that day when the Inspector (Mr Bircham) was in attendance. He spoke of the benefits that would accrue to the Board from the adoption of the resolution.—Mr George Da vies seconded the resolution, and the Inspector (Mr Bircham), pointed out that all communications from one Board to another should pass between the Clerks to the Unions. A good deal of dis- cussion ensued on the subject in favour of the resolution. Marriage. On Friday last Miss Bessie Phillips, the noted soprano vocalist from Carmarthen who vuited Fishguard and saug at the Hermon Chapel concert during last winter, was married to Mr Giles, managing- editor of the Carmarthen Journal." L The biide looked charming inabimple dress of white silk. Among the present* was one from the staff of the Journal of I- Cham- bers Encyclopedia of English Literature." l We wish Mr and Mrs Giles Lng We of happiness and prosperity. Beauties of North Pembrokeshire.—The novelists of the day are evidently beginning to appreciate the beauties of Pembrokeshire. It will be remembered that a well-known lady novelist lately spent a holiday in Haver- fordwest. M r Guy Boothby two years ago made a long stay at Newgale and now we hear that Mr Fergus Hume is about to stay in the neighbourhood of North Pembroke- shire. Accident to the Circus Man.—Prolonged discussion took place last week at the Guardians' meeting in respect to the cost of treating the circus man who received a com- pound fracture of the thigh whilst descending Letterston hid in charge of a wagon recently. Dr J M Oven attended the unfortunate driver and cliar-ged the rjgulation fee of C5 for setting the litiib, but as the doctor did not attend him to time of recovery, he left the matter in the hands of the Board which resol- ved to allow £2 1 's. Ia the discussion as to the probability of recovering some of the cost of the treatment of the man from his employer, it was stated that the employer had repudiated all responsibility on the ground that the man was drunk at the time.—The Inspector (Mr Bircham), suggested that the amount should be paid, as a loan, and that the Board should endeavour to obtain the money, or part of it, from the man on his recovery. Increase of Salary.—Mrs Hall the matron of the U crkhouse applied for an increase of salary from i20 to £2G per annum as she has to contribute £ 1 4s towards the superanua- tion fund—for her own benefit-and in con- sequence of increased work due to the altera- tion of the dietary table. On the motion of Mr J LI Davies, seconded by Mr W J Vaugh au, it was resolved to refer the matter to the House Committee. Employees Visit.-Oii Thursday last the employees of Mr John A Bland, carriage builder, of Haverfordwest, had their annual outing to Fishguard and Good wick. Thf drive in the morning was very much enjoyed and on arrival the party, by special permissia of the officials, visited the Great Westen Railway Co's harbour works, in which try were much interested, aud afterwards pai a visit to Glyn-y-mel, the residence of Air Jhn Worthington. Wind-up.—At the annual general meang of the Cardigan Commercial Steam Patets Co., Ltd., it, was resolved to wind uthe company and realise the assets. The sterner ran weekly between Bristol and Cardiga, but tradesmen would not take up shares ad pa- tronise the company. Occasional Sessions. -A claim or an annual rental of £ G for the use of theiarket Hall for occasional sessions was put nto the waste paper basket, so to speak, by ti Stand ing Joint Committee last week. Mr J H Griffiths said the place was used cly about once a year, which is a prevaricaou of the truth, to say the least. Tramps ane soakers are too numerous. After some dcussion it was decided not to pay the bill, M J Mathias remarking that he understood thatf they did not do 8) they would not be al!(ve i to usp the hall again.—The Chairman sat that the Police-station could be used for 18 purpose when necessary, It is difficult to nderstand why such a vague understanding bout ufeing the place again should crop up r iufllence the matter in any way. If a vrkiug-nian tenant declines to pay his hou; rent. the Magistrates are pretty sure to mce an order for ejecting him lock, stock and arrel.
