Pleaded guilty, and was fined Is. with 6s. costs. Paid. D'RUNK WHILST IN CHARGE OF A HORSE AND TRAP. R. P. Charles was charged by Police-Sergeant Watts with being drunk whilst In charge of a horse and trap in Tenby, on Saturday, the 3rd instant. Mr J. T. Williams, of Pembroke-Dock, appeared for the defendant, who pleaded "not guilty." P.C. Sullivan sworn said—Shortly after eight o'clock in the evening of Saturday, the 3rd inst., I saw the defendant driving a horse and trap in White Lion Street. From the reckless manner in which he pulled the reins the horse became very restive. I put my hand up, which had the effect of checking him. I then saw defendant was under the influence of drink, and I told him he should not proceed further. A friend of defendant's, Mr Husband, came up and said he was only tempo- rarily in charge of the trap. A few minutes afterwards other of his friends came out of the Gate House Hotel, drove the trap away and left defendant behind, He was drunk. Cross-examined—I was standing at the top of Frog Street when I saw the trap coming up the Street; the horse was very restive; no accident happened; defendant pulled the reins; I am satisfied defendant was drunk defendant was dressed on the occasion as he is now, except that he wore a broad brim hat; I know the gateway leading from the yard of the Gate House; it is wide enough to drive a trap through easily; it is the ordinary Width of sue hentrances; I havedriven some, and rode behind many horses; I concluded he was drunk from the manner in which he pulled the reins, and from what I saw after he came down from the trap; perhaps the horse was a spirited one it was very restive it would depend upon the drunkenness of a person whether he would be able to drive a horse and trap through the gateway without accident. I told the defendant that he should not proceed further. I saw him for a minute or two only. By Police-sergeant Watts-There was a com- plaint made to me earlier in the evening about the conduct of defendant. Police-sergeant Watts called Mr Holt, when Mr Williams asked if the Bench were going to hear evidence of something that was supposed to have taken place earlier in the evening. Police-sergeant Watts-It has reference to the state of the defendant shortly before he was seen by the constable. The Choirman-I suppose his evidence will have reference to the charge? Police-Sergeant Watts—Yes! The Chairman—Then we will hear his evidence. Charles John Holt sworn said-About seven p-m. I was standing at the Cobourg Hotel talking to the 'bus man when my wife passed to go to Crockford's Library. Defendant attempted to put his arms round her neck and "chirped" as if he intended to kiss her. I was within two yards of him at the time. I did not say anything to him. He then followed my wife into Mr Crockford's shop, and I went in after him and charged him with insulting my wife. He denied it. He afterwards came into my shop and refused to leave. By Mr Laws-Was he drunk? Witness—He was drunk. He came into my shop three times, and I could not get rid of him till I sent for the police. This was about seven. I fix the time by the time I had my tea and the train being late. Mr Williams said he would not cross-examine witness, but he would go into the box and give a flat contradiction to everything he had said. Police-Sergeant Watts sworn said-From infor- mation received I searched the town on Saturday evening, the 3rd inst., for defendant. I saw him a few minutes after eight coming down from a trap at the door of the Gate House Hotel. He was drunk. Police-constable Sullivan was there at the time. Cross-examined Defendant failed to walk steadily he came out of the trap like a drunken man. I saw him for a few minutes. This closed the case for the prosecution, and Mr Williams addressed the Bench for the defence. He said Mr Charles was a gentleman just home from the colonies, and was over in Tenby spending the day. He drove over and put his horse and trap at the Gate House. In the evening he went into Mr Crockford's shop to get some stamps, when Mr Holt came in and charged him with conduct that Mr Charles would certainly not be guilty of. About a quarter to seven he (Mr Williams) met Mr Charles in the High Street, and being an acquaintance, that gentleman at once told him what had occurred, and gave him a history of the proceedings. He also asked his opinion whether he ought not to proceed against Mr Holt. Mr Charles afterwards went into Mr Holt's shop, gave him his card, in order to show his bona fides, with my name written on the back as his solicitor. Mr Charles was in my company till a quarter past seven, and he was then perfectly sober. Mr Charles returned to the Gate House Hotel, and he (Mr Williams) would call Mr Mills, the experienced waiter at that hotel, and the "boots," both of whom would swear that there was j not the slightest suspicion for the statement that his friend was drunk and he himself would also go into the box and swear to the sobriety of Mr Charles from a quarter to, to a quarter past seven, Thomas John Williams, sworn, said-I am a solicitor practising at Pembroke-Dock. I met Mr Charles in High Street, Tenby, between twenty minutes and a quarter to seven on the 3rd inst. Mr Charles was then perfectly sober. There was not the slightest suspicion of drunkenness about him, I remained in his company about half-an- hour. Cross-examined by Police-sergeant Watts—I did not see him speak to Mrs Holt; I left him about half past seven I am only contradicting Mr Holt. William Mills, sworn said, he was a waiter at the Royal Gate House Hotel. He remembered, on the 3rd August, giving Mr Charles dinner about quarter past eight. He was not drunk. He waited upon him for about three-quarters of an hour. He be- haved like a gentleman. Arthur Walters, "boots" at the above Hotel, said he saw Mr Charles on the above evening, and he was perfectly sober. Mr Williams said if the Justices required further evidence, if they would adjourn the case he could bring half-a-dozen other persons who would swear that defendant was not drunk on the occasion. The ChairmanWe will adjourn the case for a week in order to enable you to obtain further evidence. Mr Williams-—Mr Charles says he would prefe# that the case should be settled now. It is not my suggestion, for I should prefer an adjournment. The Chairman—We fine the defendant 5s. and costs 7s. The Chairman—We fine the defendant 5s. and costs 7s. Mr Williams gave notice of appeal. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY. James Moon, a pedlar, was charged by Police- sergeant Watts with being drunk and disorderly on the 13th July. Defendant did not appear.

THE PROPOSED BUTTER FACTORIES…
THE PROPOSED BUTTER FACTORIES FOR CARMARTHENSHIRE. The Carmarthenshire Farmers' Club some time ago deputed Mr W. J. Wilson (agent to Sir Arthnr Stepney, Bart., M. P.), of The Dell, Llanelly, and Mr D. H. Thomas, of Derllys Court, to visit butter factories in England and Ireland. On Saturday afternoon, at the Boar's Head Hotel, Carmarthen, these gentlemen gave an interesting accou nt of their experiences during a recent week's tour, and the meeting unanimously agreed that, from the statistics presented by Mr Wilson, they were encouraged to do what they could to form an association that would establish butter factories and dairy schools in Carmarthenshire. It was thought that one of each should first of all be tried as an experiment; and it was contended that, if peoperly worked, they would not be long before they had several in the county. They were de- cidedly of opinion that such steps must be taken as would ensure Government aid. It appeared that Scotland, by helping itself, was getting £ 1,300 per annum as an agricultural grant towards dairy schools and agricultural education, while North Wales only received one grant of E200 and South Wales nothing. The members of the club present at the meeting expressed a firm determination to induce their brethren at the next quarterly gather- ing to give their best support towards the carrying out of the project aforenamed.
LIVERPOOL'S DRUNKEN RECORD.

With a population of 552,508, it had last year 15,023 convictions, whilst London (the Metropolitan Police District, with a population of 4,716,009 had only 17,065. Or, in other words, Liverpool had nearly nine times the number of convictions for drunkenness in proportion to its population that London had.

QUARTERLY MEETING OF THB TOWN COUNCIL. The usual quarterly meeting of the Town Council was held in the Council Chamber on Wednesday, the 7th August. PresentAlderman Rogers Councillors W. Williams, B. G. Gifford, L. R. Wood, G. Richards, J. K. Buckley, J. Leach, and M. Mathias-Thomas. ELECTING A CHAIRMAN. On the motion of Mr Rogers, seconded by Mr Mathias-Thomas, that in the absence of the Mayor and Deputy Mayor, Mr Williams take the chair. Carried unanimously. SIGNING MONEY ORDERS The Council then proceeded to sign cheques for the payment of bills. This completed, Mr J. Leach pointed out, in reference to the account presented by the Gas ICompany for public lighting, that the Corporation, since the police had passed out of their control, had no check upon the Company as to the number of lights that were kept burning during the night. The police formerly reported weekly when any lamps were out, and he thought it desirable if the arrangement could be continued. The Chairman said that since they had lost their police they had lost control of many things they had before. Mr J. Leach said that in order to bring the matter to an issue, he would propose that the Town Clerk be instructed to write to the Chief Constable of Pembrokeshire, asking his permission to allow the constables in the borough to report weekly on the public lamps that are lighted, so that the Finance Committee may be able to check the Gas Company's accounts for public lighting. This was seconded by Mr Mathias Thomas and carried. Mr J. K. Buckley said there was another item in the accounts of the Gas Company that caused dis- cussion at the last meeting of the Finance Com- mittee, and in consequence they did not initial it. It was a charge made for a new lamp over Gordon's Commercial Hotel. It appears it had been broken by the 'bus in passing. He was of opinion that the cost of the lamp should have been recovered from those who broke it. The Chairman explained that the lamp in question was a public light, but the lantern was an orna- mental one placed there at the expense of Mr Gordon, with the consent of the Corporation. Mr Buckley-The lamp should be lifted higher up or brought in closer to the door. It now over- hangs the pavement. Mr Leach said the new lamp was a plain one. The Chairman said he thought there would be some difficulty in recovering the cost of the lamp from the 'bus driver, but he thought it might be moved into a better position. On the motion of Mr J. Leach, seconded by Mr Mathias Thomas, it was agreed that the matter be referred to the Roads Committee, to see whether it would not be advisable to remove the lamp into a more suitable place, so that it may not be broken by conveyances passing along the street. MORTGAGE FOR JE352. The Town Clerk asked that the seal of the Cor- poration should be attached to the mortgage to the Public Works Loan Commissioners for £ 352 for works of additional Water Supply, and to the certificate to be handed to Mr Cross, the Borough Treasurer. On the motion of the chairman, seconded by Alderman Rogers, the seal was accordingly affixed. REPORTS. The Town Clerk read the report of the Quay, Water, Sanitary, and Roads and Improvements Committees, all of which were adopted. LOCAL GOVERNMENT BILL. The Town Clerk, in accordance with instructions given at the last meeting, read his report on the Local Government (Transfer of Powers) Provisional Order Bill, and also a letter from the Town Clerk of Southport bearing on the subject. It was Proposed by the Chairman and seconded by Mr J. Leach, that the Town Clerk inform the Town Clerk of Southport that this Council would wish to be exempted from the powers of the Provisional Order of the Local Government Board made under the Local Government Act, 1888, for transferring to the councils of counties and County Boroughs certain powers and liabilities of Government departments. CONDEMNED HOUSES IN ST. GEORGE STREET. The Town Clerk reported that J. Collins and John Leonard had left St. George's Alley, their houses being now vacant. One tenant remained who had promised to leave as soon as he had found a house to go into. It was resolved that the Surveyor be instructed to board up the doors of the two vacant cottages, and that the Town Clerk give the other tenant one week longer to find a house and if he does not by that time clear out legal proceedings to be taken against him. STREET IMPROVEMENT. The Town Clerk read a letter from Mr Abraham Thomas offering to sell the house now in the occu- pation of Mr John Davies in South Parade for E155, for the purpose of street improvement. It transpired that Mr Thomas had only recently purchased the house and the sum he now asked for it was what it cost him, together with cost of the transfer. The Town Clerk reported that Mr Walter Rees had agreed to sell the cottages in the court near the Five Arches, at the valuation made by Mr J, A. Jenkins. As the court adjoined the premises of Mr Abraham Thomas, if the Corporation decided to purchase, they would be able to get a road into Potter's Field. On the motion of Mr Alderman Rogers, seconded by Mr M. Mathias-Thomas, it was agreed to accept Mr Abraham Thomas's offer. Letters were also read from Mr Robert Lock, Mr R. Waters, and Mr W. Waters, in reference to the cottages in South Pool and South Parade, but it was agreed to postpone the consideration of them till a future time. It was proposed by the Chairman, and seconded by Mr J. Leach, that the Town Clerk write Alder- man W. H. Richards to ascertain the terms upon which he would sell Parcell's Yard and stables in the South Parade, as without these premises the improvements in this part of the town would only be partial. THE JUBILEE FUND. The Town Clerk read a letter from Mr Goward, and also the following account of the Jubilee Com- mittee, which showed a deficit of ill 6s. 3d.

Carried. VENTILATING SHAFTS. On the motion of Mr Wood, seconded by the Chairman, the Surveyor was requested to report to the Council how many air-shafts had been erected; through the town.

Wood, that the seal of the Urban Sanitary Authority be affixed to the contract with Mr Jarses Fisher for laying the water mains to Carswell. LETTERS FROM THP, HOME SECRETARY AND MR. M. MATHIAS THOMAS. The Town Clerk read a letter from the Home Office in reference to the part-payment of the cost of the Borough Police from the 29th September, 1888, to the 20th March, 1889, being repaid to the corporation, which stated that such would depend upon the report of the Secretary of State, whether the force was efficient or not. There was also a communication from Mr Mathias Thomas to the effect that he had seen Captain Elgee who stated that in his opinion, Tenby was entitled to an in- creased police force. LETTER FROM BOROUGH ACCOUNTANT. The Town Clerk read a letter from the Manager of the London and Provincial Bank, agreeing to advance the sum of £ 900 for the payment of Potter's Field, pending a loan from the Public Works Loan Commissioners.

The meeting then broke up.
MIRACULOUS ESCAPE AT BORTH.
MIRACULOUS ESCAPE AT BORTH. A remarkable escape from drowning is recorded at Borth, Cardiganshire. It appears that a Mrs Davies and her two nephews, sons of her sister, went to Borth and proceeded below the rocks towards Vallog in search of prawns. They did not notice the inflowing tide until they were hemmed in. They had no resource but to climb up the steep rock, thinking by that means to ascend to the headland above. After proceeding 80 feet no further progress could be made. The two young men were with difficulty able to return, and the only assistance one of them could render his aunt was to take her hand and help her to the ledge of the rock, where they had to leave her holding on to a piece of projecting rock, whilst they got to shore to seek for assistance at Penygraig, a farm house situated near the top of the high rock. The farmer, Mr Enoch Williams, and his servant started off immediately, taking with them a long rope. Mr Enoch Williams then descended to where Miss Davies was, and having made the end of the rope secure around her waist she commenced her perilous ascent, which was achieved by an additional 80 feet- ere reaching the safe place of landing on the bank above. She had to bear her solitude for two hours before being rescued. Miss Davies is the third daughter of Mr Davies, Penpompren, and granddaughter of the late Major-General Davies, C.B., who was colonel of the gallant 36th, which regiment he led to so many victoiies throughout the whole of the Peninsular war.

THE MAESGWYNNE FOXHOUNDS. On Saturday afternoon a meeting of gentlemen interested in foxhunting was held at the Ivy Bush Royal Hotel, Carmarthen, to consider the desira- bility of taking steps towards retaining the celebrated Maesgwynne pack of foxhounds (now advertised for sale) in the Carmarthen country. Mr Grismond Philipps, Owmgwilly, presided, and there were present Messrs T. Morris, Coomb; T. Parkinson, Castle Pigin; H. G. Lawrence, Waungron; A. W. O. Stokes, Ystradwrallt; J. Beynon, Trewern; Protheroe, junr., Dolwilim J. Howell Thomas, Starling Park; J. Francis, Carmarthen; Philipps, junr., Cwmgwilly; D. Howell Thomas, Derllys A. R. Carver, Maesgwyn; H. Cadle, Carmarthen; and D. E. Williams, Carmarthen. After a brief discussion, it was decided to approach Mr W. J. Buckley, of Penyfai, on the subject, and the meeting was adjourned for a fortnight.
HOLLOWAY'S PILLS. The Great Need. The blood is the life and on its purity depends our health if not our existence. These Pills thoroughly cleanse this vital fluid from all contaminations, and by that power strengthen and invigorate the whole system, healthily stimulate sluggish organs, repress over- excited action, and establish order of circulation and secretion throughout every part of the body. The balsamic nature ot Holloway's Pills commends them to the favour of debilitated and nervous consti- tutions, which they soon resuscitate. They dislodge all obstructions, both in the bowels and elsewhere, and are, on that aeeount, much sought after for promoting regularity of action in young females and delicate persons who are naturally weak, or who, from some cause, have become so. A pithy definition of a lover is the following: "A lover is a man who endeavours to be more amiable than it is possible for man to be, and this is the reason why almost all lovers appear ridiculous." The young man," says an ditor who is just en- gaged, who would waste time kissing a girl's hand would eat the brown-paper bag containing hothouse grapes and leave the fruit for someone else."
