WATERFORD STEAMERS. PROPOSED CESSATION OF PASSENGER TRAFFIC. The Great Western Railway Company have inserted a clause in their Omnibus Bill for next session which proposes to enact that As from the passing of this Act the com- pany shall be and they are hereby relieved from any obligation imposed upon them by Section 70 of the Fishguard and Rosslare Railways and Harbours Act, 1896, to con- vey passengers between Waterford and either New Milford or Fishguard. The section in the Act of I8g8 above re- ferred to compels the company, unless and until Parliament should otherwise determine, to continue to provide or afford a daily ser- vice between Waterford and either New Mil- ford or Fishguard as efficient as that provided by them at the date of the passing of the Act," and that the Railway and Canal Com- mission should have power to enforce the same. It is contended by the company that by the passing of the Fishguard Act of 1898 they have provided by the new route such an efficient service that the effect of the establish- ment and running of the new and improved steamer and passenger train services via Fishguard and Rosslare had been to denude the steamers running between Fishguard and Waterford almost entirely of passengers, although the service has been maintained at great cost to the company," without any material benefit to the public." Whilst asking to be relieved of the obliga- tion of the section so far as it relates to the conveyance of passengers, it is proposed to continue the service by steamers specially adapted for the carrying of cattle and goods traflic only.

Sir Owen Philipps and Free Speech. The following letter has been addressed to the Press by Sir Owen Philipps :— Sir,—I am very sorry to see that some of the Conservative meetings in the Pembroke and Haverfordwest contributory boroughs have been disturbed. I wrote last week to Sir George Armstrong expressing my personal regret, and I also alluded to the matter in my speeches at my public meetings at Wiston and Pembroke, and I will do so again to-night at Neyland. I am a strong believer in the importance of maintaining Freedom of speech," and I desire that all my supporters should accord to Sir George Armstrong the same courteous hearing and treatment that I have always received from my opponents.—I am, &c., OWEN PHILIPPS.

Y MODD GOREU I IAWN DREULIO'R SABBATH. (Buddugol yn nghyfarfod cystadleuol Saron, Trelettert, Rhagfyr 28ain, 1909.) Gan JOHN THOMAS, Cleddau House. Ystyr y gair Sabbath yw gorphwysfa. Y mae'r Sabbath yn sefydliad pendant. Ceir yr awdurdod yn Genesis ii, 1-3: A Duw a fen- digodd y seithfed dydd," nen a fwriadodd y dydd hwn i fod yn ffynonell bendithion neill- duol i ddyn, gan ei osod o'r neilldu i gael ei ddefnyddio at ddibenion cretyddol. Gwelir yn amlwg fod yr apwyntiad wedi ei fwriadu i'w holl greaduriaid, ac nid i unrhyw bobl neillduol; ac ymddengys fod y patrivehiaid yn talu sylw iddo, a bod yr Israeliaid yn ei gadw cyn rhoddiad y gyfraith yn ffarfiol ar Sinai. Gwelwn fod gwaith Duw yn gorphwys ei hun yn esiampl i ni, ac fod lie i ddisgwyl bendith neillduol Duw wrth sancteiddio y Sabbath a'i dreuliogyda Duw a'i waith. Gorchymynodd Dnw drwy Moses, pan yn rhoddi y deg gorchymyn ar Sinai, i gofio cadw yn sanctaidd y dydd Sabbath, ac 08 oea un gorchymyn yn fwy pendant na'r llall, fcwn ydyw. Cyfnewidiwyd y Sabbath dan yr efengyl o'r seithfed dydd i'r dydd cyntaf o'r wythnos, yn goffadwriaeth o adgyfodiad Crist oddiwrth y meirw, a chredwyf fod y Sabbath yn arwYdd o'r orphwysfa sydd yn Nghrist i bechadur llwythog a blinderog, ac hefyd ei fod yn at- wydd sicr o'r orphwysfa sydd eto'n ol i bobl Dduw yn y nefoedd. Y mae yn amlwg nad yw newidiad yn y di. wrnod yn gwneuthur dim cyfnewidiad yn nod- wedd foesol a rhwymedigaeth y sefydliad, yn gymaint ag yw gwaith y prynedigaeth yn fwy gogoneddus na gwaith creadigaeth y mae yn hawlio i'r Sabbath gael ei newid o'r seithfed dydd i'r dydd cyntaf. Ond yr ydym yn cael fod y Cristionogion cyntefig, am y ddwy ganrif gyntaf, yn cadw'r ddau ddiwrnod yn hollol ar wahan, ond nad oeddynt yn ymatal rhag gweithio ond ar y seithfed dydd yn unig. Yn I foreu yn y drydedd ganrif, cawn fod Tertullian yn taer gymhell y Cristionogion ac eraill i ymatal rhag gweithio ar y dydd cyntaf o'r wythnos, sef y Sabbath Cristionogol, ac mewn amser fe fabwysiadwyd yr ymarferiad yn gyffredinol. Yr ydym yn cael fod loan yn Ynys Patmos yn ei alw yn ddydd yr Arglwydd, a chan mai ei ddydd Ef ydyw, dylai fod yn gysegredig iddo. Ac nis gallwn lai na chysylltu a'r geiriau yr ydym yn sylwi arnynt y troion hyny y mae hanes Crist genym yn ymddangos i'w ddys- gyblion ar ol Ei adgyfodiad, yn y rhai yr oedd mewa ystyr yn hawlio y diwrnod fel yr eiddo Ei hun. Yr ydym yn byw dan oruchwyliaeth ysbryd- ol, ac a ydyw yn nodwedd o oruchwyliaeth ysbrydol i bob dydd fod yn gyffelyb? Nac ydyw, meddaf, ac a oes rhyw sefydliad Dwy- fol yn fwy nodedig o gyfaddas, er meithrin a dwyn ar gynydd ysbrydolrwydd meddwl, na dydd yr Arglwydd, pan y cedwid ef yn dei- lwng ? Ond fel y mae yn alarus meddwl fod canoedd, ie miloedd lawer, hyd yn nod yn Nghymru uchel ei breintiau, yn byw ac yn treulio eu Sabbathau yn hollol anheilwng o'r Sabbath ac o Dduw. Er mwyn iawn dreulio y Sabbath, dylem fod fel loan yn Ynys Patmos, "Yn yr ysbryd." Dylem ofyn am gael ein bedyddio a'r Ysbryd Glan, ac am Ei arweiniad Dwyfol yn ystod y dydd. Yr ydym yn cael fod Iesu, pan yma ar y ddaear, yn arfer myned i'r synagog y dydd Sabbath i addoli, a chawn ei fodEf yn esiatnpl i ni. Dylem ninau hefyd fynychu moddion gras, ac nid eu h isgeuluso. Er fod y Sabbath i fod yn orphwysfa i ddyn ae anifail, eto y mae i fod yn gytleusdra i Dddoli Duw yn fwy cyhoeddus ac arbenig nag ar brydiau ereill. Dywed Crist, Y mae fy N had yn gweithio hyd yn hyn, ac yr wyf finau yn gweithio." Gwelwn fod genym ninau ein gwaith hefyd i'w wneuthnr ar y dydd hwn, ac mai nid dydd i segura yw dydd yr Arglwydd i fod. Y modd goreu i'w dreulio, credaf, yw myned i gysegr Duw i addoli, ac nid myned i rodiana, diota, i edrych am ein cyfeillion a'n perthynasau, nen i weled yr anifeiliaid a'r fferm, a phethau ereill cyffelyb, a thrwy hyny esgeuluso addoliad y gwir a'r bywiol Dduw yn ddirgel a chyhoeddus. Dylem orphwys oddiwrth bob difyrwch cnawdol, gan fod halogiad o'r Sabbath yn cal- edu y gydwybod, ac yn arwain i bechodau ereill. Yr wyf yn ofni fod mwy o deithio a negeseua ar y dydd hwn yn awr nag oedd ugain mlynedd yn ol, oddiar mae y bicycles, y motor cars, a'r electric cars wedi dod i arfer- iadj ac yr ydym yn sicr mai nid un o'r ffyrdd hyn yw y ffordd oreu i iawn ddefnyddio dydd yr Arglwydd. Dylem fel eglwysi Crist godi ein lief yn erbyn y pethau hyn, gan eu bod yn niweidiol iawn, yn neillduol i'n ieuenctyd. Hefyd, er mwyn iawn dreulio'r Sabbath, dylem egwyddori ein plant a'n teuluoedd yn Ngair Duw, trwy gyfrwng yr Ysgol Sul. Dyma un o'r sefydliadau goreu, os nid y goreu, a sefydlwyd yn unrhyw oes o'r byd or meithrin ein plant a'n cenedl yn addysg ac athrawiaeth yr Arglwydd. Dylem fel Cristionogion wneyd llawer mwy gyda'r sefydliad hwn. Beth sydd wedi gyru yr ofergoelion a'r sothach yna i ffwrdd, ac wedi llwyddo i gadw ein hen iaith anwyl yn fyw ond yr Ysgol Sul yn benaf? Pa faint o'n gweinidogion mwyaf ymroddgar a llafurus sydd wedi bod yn sugno maeth o fron- au yr Ysgol Sul ? A chan mai magwrfa yw hi i fagu a meithrin y do ieuanc sydd yn codi, bydded i ni wneyd ein goreu drosti drwy ei mynychu, ac hefyd drwy gael pawb a allom i ddod yn ddeil- iaid ffyddlon iddi. Gwir a ddywedodd y Pab, Rhoddwch i mi y plant, byddaf sicr o'r oes nesaf Cotiwn nad oes genym ond un diwrnod i lafurio am eu llesad tragwyddol, pan y mae gan Satan a'r byd chwe' diwrnod. Dylem fel Ymneillduwyr wneyd mwy o'r plant, nid yn unig yn yr Ysgol Sul, ond hefyd yn ein cyfarfodydd pregethu, a'n cyfarfodydd gweddi. Dylem ddod a hwynt gyda ni i bob cwrdd, a cheisio ganddynt ddweyd lle'r oedd y testyn, yna mha lyfr, pwy benod, a phwy adnod. ac ymdreehu cael ganddynt'gofio geiriau'r testyn, Fe fyddai hyny yn gwneyd iddynt dalu mwy o sylw i'r pregethwr pan yn pregethu, ac hefyd yn arferiad da i'r plant yn ot Ilaw- Er fod manteision addysg grefyddol yn ami a lluosog, fel mai ychydig iawn o ddeg mlwydd oed i fyny sydd yn analluog i ddarllen Gair Duw; ond mae He i ofni mai ychydig yw Difer 11 gwneu- thur wyr y Gair ag gydd yn cymeryd y Gair yn rheol eu hymddygiadau, gellir dweyd am lawer o honom ein bod yn gwybod ewyllys ein Har- glwydd, ond eto heb ei gwneuthur. Y mae fel rhyw amlygrwydd fod y diafol a'i angelion wedi deffro ac adnewyddu eu hymdrech- ion 0 blaid eu teyrnas yn ein gwlad y dyddiau hyc* Beth yw y eyriydd mawr sydd ar Anffydd- iaeth, ac hefyd y cynydd mawr sydd ruewn cys- ylltiad a'r lenyddiaeth waeJ, druenus, sydd fel diluw yn gorchuddio ein gwlad anwyl ? Onid chwaeth yr oes sydd wedi myned mor isel fel nad oes dim yn gwneyd y tro i'n hieuenctyd ond novels," a'r rhai hyny o'r dosbaith iselaf pos- sibl; ac onid yw yr ystyriaeth ddifrifol o'r peth- au hyn yn galw yn uchel arnom fel Cristionogion —yn weinidogion, diaconiaid, ac aelodau crefydd. ol-i ddeffro ac i arjer ein holl alluoedd yn erbyn y pethau hyn. Bydded i ni wisgo am danom holl arfogaeth Duw, a defnyddio cleddyf yr Ysbryd- yr hwa yw Gair Duw-ac i yindrechu dylanwadu ar ein hieuenctyd anwyl i ddarllen ac yniwneyd mwy a'r Beibl, a thrwy hyny gyflawni gorchym- yn Crist, yr Hwn a ddywedodd, Chwiliwch yr ysgrythyrau, canys ynddynt hwy yr ydych yn meddwl cael bywyd tragwyddol, a hwynt hwy yw y rhai sydd yn tystiolaethu am danaf ti." Bydded i ni oil, yu hen ac ieuanc, i iawn dreulio ein Babbathau, drwy ofalu bod yn bres- ejiol yn mhob cyfarfod, ac hefyd yn yr Ysgol Sul. Trueni yw gwel'd cymaint o'n haelodau crefyddol yn aros draw o'r Ysgol Sul, llawer o honynt a fjddent 0 wasanaeth mawr fel athrawon ac sthrawesau yn ein hysgolion Sul. Nid rhyfedd fod cymaint o'n becbgyn a'n merched ieuainc yn cadw draw, gan fod cymaint o'n haelodau mewn oed yn anffyddlon iddi. Bydded i ni fyfyrio mwy yn nghyfraith yr Arglwydd, a pheidio gadael y byd a'i bethau allunyddu'r nieddwl yn ormodol, ond ymgysegru ein hunain yn drylwyr, gorph a meddwl, i fab Duw, yr hwn a ryddodd Ei einioes werthfawr drosom, Ac fel y mae yr Apostol yn ein hanog i ruddi ein cjrph yu aberth byw, sanctaidd, cymeradwy, i Dduw, bydded i ni dreulio ein Sabbathau yn gyfangwbl i wasanaeth yr Arglwydd, gan goiio fod Sabbath (neu orphwysfa) eto nol i bobl Dduw. Ac os Jdym mewn atiecl-jyd, tieu henaint, yn methu cadw ein cydgynulliad, bydded i ni fod mewn ystad addolgar, gan ganu a phyncio yn ein calon i'r Arglwydd," yn ein hanedd-dai gar- tref, a thrwy hyny sancteiddio yr Arglwydd ar ei ddydd sanctaidd.

Fishguard Urban Council. Brief Monthly Meeting. The electoral fever apparently exercised potent influence over the monthly meeting of the Fishguard Urban District Council, held at the accustomed venue, on Tuesday even- ing, for not merely were there several notable absentees, but the deliberations assumed a highly conversational form, and were com- pleted within the record space of exactly an hour. Mr Levi Evans, J.P. (chairman) presided, and there were present Capt Thomas and Messrs Francis George, David Rees, David John, W Bateman, and Harry Williams together with the Clerk (Mr A J Hodges), the District Surveyor and Sanitary Inspector (Mr D G Wilcox), and the Medical Officer of Health (Dr W O'Donnell). Messrs T Lewis (vice-chairman), and W J Vaughan arrived just as the Council was on the point of rising. NEW BYE-LAWS. The Clerk read a letter from the Local Government Boatd approving of the Council's new building bye-laws, and pro- duced same bearing the seal of the Board. t CORK EXPRESS DIFFICULTY. 'I The Clerk reported that he had interviewed Mr John Rees, G.W.R. Divisional Superin- tendent, and had also received a letter from him relative to the Council's request that the I Cork express should be stopped at Goodwick Station for the convenience of passengers pro- ceeding to Fishguard. From this it appeared that the platforms at Goodwick were of in- sufficient length, and that consequently the train would have to be stopped twice in order to enable all passengers to alight. This would occasion at least ten minutes' delay, which would be very inconvenient to the boat traffic, particularly on nights when the Cork boat was running. Mr Rees promised, how- ever, that the matter should be discussed when the whole of the train service was under consideration at the end of January. THE FISHGUARD-GOODWICK ROAD. The Clerk submitted a letter from the Main Roads Committee of the County Council, who stated that consideration of the Urban Council's applications for the maining the road from Market Square to Goodwick Bridge had been deferred until the next quarterly meeting, the general opinion of the Committee being that the maining of roads to towns should be considered simultaneously, with a view to similar treatment being accorded to all towns. FOOTPATHS PRESERVATION SOCIETY. A communication from this organisation seeking the Council's support to a measure which it is promoting in the next session of Parliament was referred for consideration to the Highway Committee. PROPOSED PLEASURE PIER. The Clerk submitted correspondence from Messrs Cooper, Pen and Thorpe relative to the proposal to erect a pleasure pier at Pen- slade. They stated that plans would shortly be submitted, but that neither the Council nor anyone else would be permitted to take or retain copies of them. They enquired when the Council intended to proceed with the making of the road to secure a promen- ade for visitors and a suitable approach to the pier. In a subsequent letter they com- plained that the resolution recorded in the minutes scarcely expressed the arrangement which had been reached at the conference, and asked that the Council should add there- to an undertaking not to allow any other concession during the period of three years, and granting a free right of way to the pier to the assignors or their nominees (a possible limited liability company). After some discussion, it was agreed to leave the original minute unaltered, this de- cision being reached by the casting vote of the Chairman. SANITARY COMMITTEE. This commitJee recommended that tenders be invited for the removal once a week of the house refuse from Upper Town. Mr C R Walker hadwritten stating that'his arbitration award was ready, and would be delivered on payment of £ 11 5s 6d, his fee, solicitor's fee and stamp. The Committee recommended that Mr Walker be asked to forward his award and particulars of his charges It was further recommended that, provided the re- commendations of the Surveyor are carried out, Mr G Gwion Evans he granted a slaughter house licence for his premises, for one year. The committee reported that the Surveyor had produced plans and specifications for the private street work in Clive-road and re- commended that the Council meet as a Com- mittee to consider same. The Sanitary Inspector announced that no further cases of infectious disease had been reported. Capt Thomas explained that it was intend- ed that the contractors for the scavenging should provide their own labour, receiving no assistance from the Council's roadmen. Mr Rees suggested that the time had arrived when the Council should purchase a horse and cart. It was pointed out that such a re- commendation actually appeared on the- minutes of the Highway Committee, and the consideration of the matter was accordingly deferred. In connection with the arbitrator's fees, the Clerk mentioned that he had communicated to Mr Walker the nature of the Council's resolution but that that gentleman had replied that he could not depart from the usual practice, and had pointed out that in this matter he was acting, not as the Coun- cil's consulting engineer, but as arbitrator, and that to forward the award before re- ceiving his fees might be considered exparte. He had not placed the award with his solicitor, as was customary, out of a desire to save costs, and that he was only receiving £9 4s for writing thirty letters, and devoting four days of his own time to the matter.— It was decided that the fees be paid. In connection with the proposal to license a slaughter-house at Lower Town-which was agreed to—the.Medical Officer remarked that it would relieve the pressure upon the one belonging to the Market House Com- pany, reference to which will be found else- where in these columns. HIGHWAY COMMITTEE. This committee recommended by three votes to two that the stable and yard in Ken- sington-street, the property of Mr J M Owen, be taken at a rent of £6 per annum; That the Surveyor obtain Highway material from Penslade Quarry, and that men be employed immediately that Messrs Francis George and D P Lewis be appointed a working com- mittee in connection with the obtaining of the stones; and that the Council take into consideration the purchase of a horse and cart. Mr George said the suggested stores would require a great deal of alteration. The spec- ial committee recommended the erection of a shed on Penslade at a cost of £ 60. The Surveyor said the place was too small to ac- commodate the road brush, and added that Mr John Morgan, of Vergam, was prepared to erect stores and stables 34 feet by 18 feet, to suit the Council's requirements, and to let them to the lauthority at an annual rental of eight pounds. It was detided that the recom- mendation, together with those referring to street scavenging (Sanitary Committee) and to the purchase of a horse and cart should be adjourned for consideration by the same Committe of the whole oouncil as would deal with the proposed improvements in CliNo-road. The Chairman said the proposal to work Penslade quarry had been necessitated by the receipt of numerous complaints concerning the state of the roads in various parts of the urban area. Mr Bateman complained of the dangerous state of the road at Plasyfron, consequent upon the presence there of uncov- ered ballast. The Surveyor said it had been necessary to place the ballast there owing to the road having. got below its own found- ations, and the Penslade stones were required to cover the ballast. Mr Bateman said that, owing to the sunken condition of the road his hedge was in danger of collapsing. The proposal was agreed to, as was also that for the appointment of a working committee, f the object of which the Chairman stated to I be to obviate a recurrence of the complaints and insinuations whieh had arisen when the Surveyor had been instrncted on a previous occasions to work the quarry for the Council. BROKEN LAMPS. Mr Rees enquired why the Surveyor had not reported the fact that several lamps had been broken in Hottipass. The. Surveyor explained that his reports were made first to the High- way Committee, and that the damage had been perpetrated since the last meeting of that body.—Mr Rees proposed that a reward be issued for the discovery of the perpetrators, but the suggestion failed to meet with appro- val although the Council was unanimously of opinion that the culprits should be prose- cuted if their identity could be discovered. The complaint about the condition of The Slade was referred to the Highway Committee for consideration. FINANCE COMMITTEE. This Committee reported that the amount in Treasurer's hand was £32 5s Sd; that the Collector had paid the Treasurer £89 4s fd and that it had passed for payment bills amounting to £ 33 is od. The minutes were formally approved. GOODWICK BRIDGE. • The Clerk, in reply to Mr Rees, said he had nothing official to report concerning the negotiations for the widening of Goodwick Bridge, but that he understood that plans for the execution of the work had already been drawn up. Mr Rees said the question was a very urgent one. The Council then rose.
Dissatisfied With Sentence! WINDOW-SMASHER WANTED AN- J OTHER MONTH. It is but seldom that a convicted prisoner expresses dissatisfaction with the leniency of the sentence, yet such an incident arose at the Fishguard Town Hall on Saturday, when Barnabas Austen, and Joseph Jones, a couple of tramps, were charged (before Messrs T G Bennett and L Evans), upon remand from the previous day, with having maliciously broken two plate-glass windows, valued at £ 10s, and belonging to Messrs George Oliver. Both prisoners pleaded guilty," and de- clined to cross-examine the witnesses. Constable Roberts stated that at about eight o'clock on the proceeding Thursday evening, he heard a smash of glass, and pro- ceeding to the spot, found that two windows had been broken in an unoccupied shop situate at the corner of Clive-road and West-street. The prisoners were there, and, upon being questioned, Austin replied that they wanted to be locked up because they were wet through and had nowhere to go. One of the windows, witness added, was broken about the middle, and the other about the bottom, there being a hole of about eight inches diameter. Formal evidence as to ownership was given by Sergt Rosser, and by Mr Job Herbert, who stated that he was now the custodian of the premises, which he had formerly occupied. Benjamin Williams, carpenter, West-street, estimated the damage at £4 10s. Austin informed the Bench that they wanted to go to goal out of the wet. They admitted having deliberately broken the window with that object in view. He had tramped from Cardigan and was an iron moulder by trade. Jones, asked what he was, replied that he was a Socialist, but upon the querry being repeated by his companion, shouted out that he was a miner. Mr Bennett said the Bench considered that to be a very serious offence. Prisoners had damaged unprotected property. The magistrates unfortunately knew nothing of their records. It was possible that there were other charges against them, in which they would deserve a more serious sentence. As it was, the matter was serious enough, and they would each be sentenced to two month's imprisonment with hard labour. Austen Can't you make it three for us ? Mr Bennett Two months.
FISHGUARD'S OPPORTUNITY. The following frank, outspoken statement by a Fishguard woman gives Fishguard an opportunity of gaining information which will be beneficial to many here. Mrs Marie Maskell, of Penygroes, Fishguard says :For some years I have been subject to a weakness in the back, especially after having had a cold. My back used to ache dreadfully, and when I stooped the pain was almost unbearable. I often Jhad attacks of dizziness, and there seemed to be spots float- ing before my eyes. I am pleased to say that I found a splen- did remedy for my trouble in Doan's back- ache kidney pills; they quite cured me When- ever I feel any sign of the old trouble return- ing, I at once use Doan's backache kidney pills, and they always do me good.
