IN consequence of the pressure upon our space-pressure which has already necessita- ted the use of several columns of unusually small type-our editorial comments are un- avoidably held over until the publication of our next issue.
FISHGUARD. CLIVE ROAD GARDENS.-E. E. Andrew, Market Gardener and Florist, Wreaths, Crosses and Bouquets made to order on short- est notice. Farmers' Club.—A paragraph which has gone the round of the Press conveys the entire- ly fallacious impression that this organisation was enabled last year to place r,5o to reserve and yet had a balance of £ 50 in hand as a result of the last cattle show. As a matter of fact, the £ "150 represents the accumulated reserve of previous years, the £ 50 constituting the profit during 1909. Carelessly-phrased reports such as this are calculated to injure the club by inducing subscribers to believe that its financial needs are less than is actually the case. Personal.—Mr W M Treglown, the well- known mining engineer, who was associated so intimately with the construction of Fish- guard Harbour, paid a flying visit to the locality on Wednesday of last week, meeting with a cordial welcome at the hands of many old friends. Accident.—On Saturday, John Reid, a resi- dent of Fishguard, who is employed as a fireman aboard the St. Andrew," fell down the engine-room ladder, and fractured two ribs, which were subsequently set bj Dr. W O'Donnell. Children's Dance.—The following are the receipts and expenditure in connection with the children's dance held recently at the Council Schools in aid of the Haverfordwest Infirmary :—Receipts—Messrs W M Treglown, London 10s 6d; W R Carver, Fishguard ios; W T Walters.

Dance.—A dance and social will be held in the National Schools on Friday evening. One of the rooms will be reserved for whist. Literary Evening. A literary evening which was to have been spent at the Inter- mediate Schools on Monday was abandoned owing to the prevalence of illness amongst the scholars. Unique Craft.—On Sunday there arrived in the Lower Town Harbour from Amlwch, a three-master schooner fitted with an auxiliary oil engine, being probably the first craft of the kind ever seen in local, waters. After dis- charging a cargo of manure, she put off into the roadstead on Tuesday, there to await a tide which will permit of her beaching at Goodwick. Cymmrodorion. This Thursday evening at 8 o'clock, in the Council School, the Rev T M James, rector of Meline, will deliver a lecture (in Welsh) on Neilltuolion a theithi rhai o'r Beirdd Cymreig."—Admission free. Sessions.—The monthly petty and first annual licensing sessions will be held in the Town Hall on Wednesday afternoon.
Local Weddings. LEWIS—BATEMAN. At Haverfordwest, on Monday, the nuptials were celebrated of Mr T Lewis, carriage- cleaner in the employ of the G.W.R. Co., and Miss W Bateman, of Drim Mill. --0-- GEORGE-HARRIES. The wedding took place at Rhosycaerau, on Saturday, the Rev. J G James (pastor) officiating, of Mr Gwynne V George, of Tre- groes, and Miss Mary Jane Harries, of Llan- druidian. Amongst the wedding party -were Misses Mina and May George (sisters of the bridegroom), Miss Bessie Harries (sister of the bride), Miss Evans, Treysgaw; Miss Higgon, Mr John George, Tregroes; and Mr Willie Harries, I landruidiau. After the ceremony the happy couple was driven to Churchlands, in a carriage provided by the Royal Oak Mews, Fishguard. o JACKMAN—EVANS. A marriage which aroused a considerable amount of interest was solemnised by the Rev. Dan Davies, on Saturday morning, in Hermon Chapel, Fishguard, which was well filled with relatives and friends of the con- tracting parties, who were respectively Mr Bertram Jackman, second steward on one of the G.W.R. Co.'s Rosslare boats, and Miss E A Evans, second daughter of Mr and Mrs Evans, of the Swan Hotel, Fishguard. The bride, who was attractively gowned in a white cos- tume, was given away by her brother, Mr J Evans, and attended by her sisters, the Misses Maud and Sally Evans, and by Mrs Kyte and the Misses E and M A Eynon. Mr Kyte, of Victoria Avenue, acted as best' man. Upon emerging from the chapel after the tying of the nuptial knot, the happy couple met with a very cordial reception at the hauds of a large number of people gathered outside.— Mr and Mrs Jackman have taken up their residence at Arranmore, High-street.
County Council Elections. PROBABLE LCCAL CANDIDATES. The County Council elections will take place on March 2nd. Appended is a list of the probable local candidates: — FISHGUARD. Mr Walter L. Williams retires, and Mr B G Llewhelin comes out in the Liberal interests. Some uncertainty exists as to whether or not the seat will be contested by the Conservatives LLANWNDA. Dr W Williams, J.P., Drim, comes out again and is not likely to be opposed. NEWPORT. Capt James, J.P., Glanteg, Dinas, also stands again and will probably be unopposed AMBLESTON. Mr James Harries, Hayscastle, will again come out in the Liberal interests. There are rumours that he is to be opposed by the Con- servatives. MATHRY. Mr T E Thomas, J.P., Trehale, retires and several names are mentioned as likely candi- dates, including Messrs E H Lewis, Hendre House, Penycwm (Liberal), and H M Harries, Nine Wells (Conservative).

GOODWICK. I Dyffryn Mission.—This (Wednesday) even- ing a service will be conducted in this place of worship by the Rev C F Ockford, the Organising Secretary of the Navvy Mission Society. Turbine Tattle.—The Patrick went into commission, under the command of Capt Davies, on Monday, and the David" is now I lying up at the Ocean Quay for the purpose of boiler cleaning prior to proceeding either to Clydebank, or the West Float, Birkenhead, for her annual survey, which will be commen- ced soon after the return of the St George." Under a new arrangement, each of the Saints has now a permanent captain, I with the result that in future the changing of masters which has hitherto taken place every six weeks is abolished. Capt Arthur Evans has been appointed to the command of one of the Waterford boats. The George" is expected back from Laird's Yard at about the end of the week. The service to Ross- lare continues to be maintained by two boats, and it is interesting to note that the "David" has been making some excellent passages since her return to her station, Particulars of an accident aboard the Andrew will be found classified with Fishguard news. Berachah.— At this place of worship on Tuesday of next week a Children's Guild will be inaugurated by a magic lantern and musical entertainment. The objects of the J Guild, as set iorth by the promoters are such as should commend themselves to everv mem- ber of the Christian community, and it is to be trusted that the inaugural gathering will be well attended. Charitable Concert.—A high-class concert will be given in Goedwig Chapel on Tuesday under the auspices of the Fishguard Harbour Works Male Voice Choir. The proceeds are to be devoted to the relief of Mr Arthur Davies, late of the Construction Works who for a considerable period has been unable to follow his occupation as carpenter, owing to ill health.MThe Chapel authorities have generously placed the edifice gratuitously at the disposal of the promoters, whilst the mem- bers of the choir-both individually and col- lectively—are leaving no effort unspared-to ensure the submission of a first-class pro- gramme. The object to which the funds are to be devoted is one of an eminently deserv- ing character, and it is sincerely to be hoped that it will receive at the hands of the public that measure of generous support which it unquestionably merits. Engagement.—The engagement is announ- ced of the curate of Neyland (Rev D L Davies), to Miss W M Jones, daughter of the Rev T Jones, rector of Dandarrog, Car- marthen. Miss Jones, who is both amiable and accomplished, is a sister of Mr Lawrence Jones, of the Marine Engineering Department Fishguard Harbour. The marriage is to take place shortiy. Appointment.—Dr W S Griffith, has been appointed as public vaccinator for the Mil- ford District, in succession to Dr Walker, who has been compelled to relinquish the office in consequence of the growth of his duties as Medical Officer to the Haverfordwest Rural Council as a result of the growth of Good- wick. Local Sessions. — The possibility of the Fishguard Petty Sessions being transferred to Goodwick upon the completion of the erection of the new police station was men- tioned at the annual meeting of the Fish- guard Market House Company, which is reported elsewhere in this issue. Suggested Lightship.—At the one hundred and eighth annual meeting of the Liverpool Un- derwriter's Association,at Liverpool.Mr Davis, as a member of the advisory committee in re- gard to lighthouses and new works, said Fishguard some time ago was comparatively little used; now she had calls from Booth and Cunard liners, representing most valuable cargoes with large numbers of people, and they should leave no stone unturned to make the approach to the harbour absolutely safe, either by the lightship or some equivalent help to the mariner in making the port. The New Council School.—Mr S B Sketch presided over a meeting of the Pembrokeshire Education Authority at Haverfordwest on Friday. The finance committee brought up a recommendation that the County Conncil should be asked to sanction the borrowing of £ 6,500 instead of £ 2,500 in respect of Good- wick Council School. Replying to Mr C W Stokes, Dr Griffiths said the increase was necessary because, in the first place, of the rapid growth of the population, and, secondly, the site on which the proposed school would be built was expensive. Quay Road.—The appearance of this thoroughfare is at present undergoing a com- plete metamorphosis. A new zig-zag path lading up to Pen Cw is being cut to the hotelward side of Penrhyn, whilst the old ztg-zaer is in process of demolition. Prepara- tions are being made fot removing yet anoth- er awkward corner in the road by diverting it Across a point where a quantity of the debtis excavated from the foundations of the hotel extension has been tipped. We under- stand that a considerable area of the hillside lyint between Penrhyn and the hotel is to be removed bodily. .B.ethesda.-In connection with this enter- prising church a Mutual Improvement Society has just been established. The inaugural meeting was held last week, when the newly- appointed pastor (Rev T Cynon Jones) pre- sided over a crowded auditory. Mr A J Row- lands read an interesting paper asserting that Christians ought to frequent theatres, the opposition being ably maintained by Mr Ben Jones. \Jpon a vote being taken the affirma- tive was carried by a majority.—Last (Tues- day) evening Mr John Howells read a thoughtful and instructive paper upon Sunday- school work, an animated discussion ensuing. Berachatb.-The formal induction of the Rev George Thomas, late of Porth, as pastor of this Calvinistic place of worship, took place on Monday evening, being well- attended. °' ° A Freak.We are unofficially informed that the minds of the local Loco' Depart- ment are greatly exercised over a white elephant and which they have recently be- come the custodians. It takes the form of a locomotive of a type somewhat unusual to-day, and So far as we are able to gather, no-one has yet mustered up sufficient courage to try her pacs, it being freely alleged that she does not hold enough water to enable her to run to Qlynderwen and back. Illness.—We learn that Miss Elsie Bowen, daughier of the Station and Quay Superin- tendent, who is in hospital in London, is making satisfactory progress towards recov- ery. Mr Bowen, junr., who is stopping with his father at Penrhyn, is also progressing. Precautions.—On Sunday morning fire hy- drants were fixed on the railway in the vicin- ftyof Concrete City and adjacent to the Engineer's Offices, being attached to the water main which follows the route of the railway downwards from Manorowen. Congregational Church. In connection with the Mutual Ittitprovement Society recen- tly founded in association with this English place of worship, all appetising tea was ser- ved on Tuesday evening, being followed by an admirable entertainment, the contributors to which were heartily applauded by a large and appreciative auditory. The financial proceeds are to be devoted to the expenses relating to the soleranization of the Church. Municipiai. The local authorities are offering a reward ot los. for information which will lead to the conviction of anyone damaging public street lamps.. Billiards.— It is Credibly rumoured that local residents will shortly be afforded the opportunity of patronising a public billiard- room, the venture being quite distinct from the palatial equipment with which it is pro- posed to furnish the Bay Hotel. Parrog.— Rivetters are actively engaged upon the girders forming the span of the new railway bridge across the Parrog road. Bay Hotel.—The internal plumbing work of the new wing of this institution has been let to Mr James Wemyss,RP.C., of Fishguard and is now being proceeded with. It would be interesting to know who was responsible for the starting of the cruel rumour one night last week, that three men had been blown off the breakwater by the gale, and that all trace of their bodies had been lost. -)-- "GREAT SOUTHERN" ASHORE. During a dense fog on Tuesday morning the G.W.R. Company's steamer Great Southern," bound from Fishguard to Water- ford with a general cargo, ran ashore three miles below Waterford and, despite all efforts to get her off, she remained fast in the mud. The weather was moderate, and it was ex- pected that she would be re-iloated with the rising tide. As we go to press we learn of the arrival in Fishguard of the vessel, and that divers are now at work endeavouring to discover the extent-if any-of the damage.
Dangerous in Drink. Dinasite's Strange Conduct. At the Fishguard Town Hall, before Messrs T G Bennett and L Evans, on Saturday afternoon, Ivor Hale Jones, of Dinas Cross, was charged upon a warrant with having threatened and attempted to do bodily harm to Sarah Jones, and also with having assaulted Roderick Jones, on the preceding Thursday. Roderick Jones stated that he was a grocer carrying on business at Dinas Cross and that the accused was his foster son, and resided with him. On the date in question the prisoner went out of the house at about six o'clock and did not return until about nine, when he refused to take any food, al- though he had not eaten anything all day, nor for two days before. He said that if wit- ness' wife brought the food to him he would break the plate over her head. Subsequently he broke a glass lamp, and also a plate, and struck witness on the head with the culm spade. The blow had left a mark, but witness did not believe that it had been struck intentionally The Clerk (Mr Vincent J G Johns) said the court had nothing to do with that. Witness, proceeding, said prisoner after- wards cried like a baby. His (witness') wife ran out of the house. In reply to the Clerk, he said prisoner did not use any threats directly towards his wife, but he told him that he would kill her. Witness added that there was not a better man on earth than the prisoner when he was sober. Answering the Bench, he said his wife was afraid of prisoner and ran out of the house when he was drunk. He never threatened her, however, except when he was in that condition. Questioned by Supt Rees Brinn, witness said he himself, was afraid of the prisoner when he was drunk, but not when he was sober. He could not let him break things, and that was why prisoner had struck him on the date in question. The Clerk: If there's no harm in him, why did you trouble about the police ? Witness: There's harm in him when he's drunk, but not at any other time. The Superintendent He wasn't drunk when you came down here yesterday morn- ing ? Wieness No; he was as quiet as you, and playing the fiddle when the policemen went into the house In reply to the Clerk, he said prisoner was not drunk when he had applied for the war- rant. He added That's all I wants is for him to go and live on himself, and not come to trouble me-not come near me. Yes, that's all I wants. Answering the Clerk he said his wife was unable to be present as she suffered from heart disease and was confined to her bed that day. Prisoner declined to cross-examine. Further questioned by the Bench, witness said prisoner had never threatened or abused him prevously, but he had broken things in the house when under the influence of drink. He never did anything when he was sober there was not a better man in Fishguard at such times. Sergt Rosser, of Fishguard, said that on the previous day he had received the warrant, and had proceeded to the residence of the last witness, where he arrested the accused, who said nothing in answer to the charge, and came along quietly to the Fishguard police station where he was locked up for the night. The Clerk Have you any opinion as to his mental state ? The Sergeant No sir, I have not. The Clerk You can make no remark? The Sergeant: No sir. Prisoner again declined to cross-examine. The Superintendent applied for a remand until Tuesday to enable him to obtain further evidence. This was granted, the Bench directing that prisoner should be detained locally in custody. THE CHARGE DISMISSED. On Tuesday morning the accused was brought up before the same magistrates. The Superintendent stated that Mrs Jones was too unwell to attend, and, in view of the lack of corroborative evidence, he had no option but to withdraw the charge. He added that he had had the prisoner examined by two medical men, who had declared that, although he was dangerous in drink, emo- tional and weak-minded, he was not insane. Mr Bennett, addressing prisoner, said he had been brought there upon what might have been a very serious charge, and un- doubtedly was so, but, for the want of evi- dence that should have been forthcoming, the case against him had fallen through. His conduct in the past had been most reprehen- sible, and he was fortunate in that case that i the matter had not been further proceeded j with. Those who should prosecute him were, the speaker thought, dealing foolishly with him. His conduct in the past had been bad he was a man who should not take drink. If that sort of thing happened again he might not be so fortunate. The Bench had, how- ever, nothing to do but to dismiss him with a caution to be more careful. He had better get clear of that neighbourhood. y The Superintendent said his advice to him was not to go back to that home again, but to look for another, as he failed to get on properly at the present one. He was a man who had come to a time of life when he ,1 should fitfht his own battles, and keep away from histthersand mother. Mr Bennett said that, instead ot cherishing his parents in their old age, prisoner threat- ened them, which was most unnatural. He advised him to repent of his past conduct and try to behave better in the future. Prisoner was then discharged, and it was arranged that Constable Jones (Dinas) should accompany him home in order to see that no disturbance accompanied the removal of his effects.
IS THIS TRUE? REMARKABLE CHARGES AGAINST EDUCATION COMMITTEE. A pamphlet just issued saysBaptists, Wesleyans, and Methodists in Pembrokeshire and West Carmarthenshire may well wonder where religious equality comes in when they see every position Of trust or profit bestowed on their Independent brethren by Radical County Councils. The headmasters of nearly every one of the schools within eight or nine miles of Whitland are Independents. Nearly all other appointments under the Counyt Council are held by members of the same denomination. In Pembrokeshire the case is still worse. No one but an Independent dare apply for-a vacancy of any kind. It would be utterly useless. If there be no vacancy for one of these favoured individuals a new post is immediately created for him or her, as the case may be. Should the Budget be passed, all the numerous and well paid (though use- less) appointments created by it will be bestowed in the same way. 'Oh, glorious religious equality.

The funeral of Mr W H Jones, anctioneer and valuer, St. David's, took place on Tues- day afternoon, and was very largely attended, Mr Jones having died on Thursday last after a prolonged illness.
