Funeral at Padding- ton Cemetery, Willesden Lane, Wednesday, at 12.15." Dr. Turner Phillips was a well-known figure in Tenby, particularly during Hunt and Race Weeks. 000 At Whitland hiring and pleasure fair on Fri- day there was a record attendance, considering the very wet weather that prevailed throughout the morning. The scarcity of servants, both boys and girls, is such that most of them had been secured before leaving home. It was a beautiful evening, and the fair was continued until a late hour.

Ernest Mathias, aged three, who was severely burnt in the Neyland gas explosion, died last week at the Haverfordwest Infirmary. The mother, Mrs Mathias, was buried at Freystrop, of which parish she was a native, on Wednes- day afternoon. The inquest on the child was opened on Wednesday, but only formal evi- dence was taken, and the inquiry was ad- journed until October 4th. At the Dungleddy Sessions at Clarbeston Road on Friday, Lawrence Hayes, Dromania, Cappoquin, Ireland, a chauffeur in the employ of Mrs Grace Villiers Stewart, was fined j25, inclusive, for refusing to stop his motor car when requested by Mr Henry Rees, Springfield, Haverfordwest. Evidence was given stating that Mr Rees was in charge of a valuable horse, returning from Letterston sports, when the de- fendant passed at a terrific pace in his motor car. The horse dashed into the hedge and fell on his side. Information was given to the police, who prosecuted. —■—KM A general meeting of the members of the Wales and Monmouthshire District Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers took place at the Assembly Rooms, Tenby, yesterday (Wed- nesday), when Mr Alfred H. Brookman, mana- ger of the Tenby Gas-works, was elected president of the Institution for the ensuing year. Prior to his election Alderman John Leach, on behalf of the Gas Company, wel- comed those attending the meeting. After the business meeting members were, on the invi- tation of the directors of the Tenby Gas Com- pany, entertained to luncheon at the Royal Gate House Hotel. Owing to pressure on our space we are obliged to hold over until next week a more detailed report of the proceedings. KM Although, as most motorists are aware, in consequence of the rise in price of raw rubber, it has been found necessary by tyre manu- facturers to increase the price of their tyres some 25%, to the economical car owner, it is worth bearing in mind that Michelin tyres can still be obtained at the old list price, i. e., 25% less than that of other makes. The district agent, Mr A. W. Randall, of The Motor House, Tenby, stocks a full range of Michelin tyres and tubes—guaranteed to be latest pattern goods, for the car, motor cycle, and ordinary cycle and clients purchasing Michelins not only secure the best tyres available, but at a con- siderobly reduced figure. As an instance of the saving, a customer purchasing a Michelin outer cover practically saves the cost of two inner tubes--a really appreciative sum. KM The Royal Mail Steam Packet Company on Monday evening celebrated the seventieth anni- versary of its incorporation by Royal Charter by a banquet at the Hotel Metropole, London. Mr Owen Philipps, M.P., chairman of the company, presided, and amongst those pre- sent were the Mexican Ambassador, the Uru- guayan Minister, Lord Pirrie, Lord Desborough, the Agents-General of Queensland, Western Australia, Tasmania, British Guina, New South Wales, South Australia, and Nicaragua, Mr G. Lambert, Civil Lord of the Admiralty, Mr R. K. Causton, Sir George Vyvyan, Sir Charles Scotter, chairman L. and S.W.R., and Sir Thomas Liptou. During the evening the chairman mentioned that, in response to a message, his Majesty the King had forwarded the following reply His Majesty returns sincere thanks for your loyal telegram, and con- gratulates the company on arriving at the seventieth anniversary of their incorporation." The local agent for the Royal Mail Steam Packet Company is Mr F. B. Mason, St. Julian Street, Tenby.
ANNUAL OUTING. The annual outing of the staff of the well- known firm of Motor Engineers, Messrs. George Ace, Ltd., Tenby, was held on Saturday last, when the members of the staff, through the gene- rosity of the directors, journeyed to Manchester, accompanied by Mr H. S. Walker, works manager; Mr W. R. Lintern, secretary; Mr George Owen, foreman of the cycle department, and Mr Abraham, sales manager. The party was met at the station, through the courtesy of Messrs. Humber, Ltd., by four taxi-cabs, and were conveyeq to the Central Hotel where they breakfasted. After breakfast, the taxi's still being at the disposal of the party, they visited several places of interest in the city, including the Manchester Docks, the White City, and the well- known Belle Vue Gardens. During the run round the city, several of the members of the staff were lucky enough to run up against (not with the taxi) Colonel J. Cody, who after the usual adjournment for refreshments, proposed a trip in his Stanley Plane. Travelling to the out- skirts of the cotton town in taxi's, still thanks to Humber Company, the Aero Garage was soon reached. After due explanation of mechanism, etc., a short flight was taken, the machine tra- velling at great speed over the Canal to Liverpool, the return journey being made at about 60 miles per hour, the garage being safely reached after one- and-half-hours' exciting and glorious flight. From thence the party wended their way to the Central p Hotel where dinner was partaken of, and after the loyal toasts were honoured, the firm was toasted with acclamation. After a most enjoyable day, the remainder of the evening was spent in the Gardens, where dancing and other amuse- ments were indulged in, the party returning home tired but happy, having spent a glorious time in Cottonopolis.
EXPECTATION OF NEW GRANTS. Mr S. B. Sketch presided at a monthly meeting of the Pembrokeshire Education Committee on Friday. Archdeacon Hilbers, moving the adop- tion of the Finance Committee's report, stated that in consequence of the adoption of a proviso under Article 31 of the new code the grants payable next March would be increased to the extent of JE170. It was decided to grant bronze medals to children making full attendances in the schools for a period of twelve months in addition to the silver medals already granted for regular attendance for five years. On the recommendation of the Higher Edu- cation Committee it was resolved to grant county exhibitions on the report of the Central Welsh Board to Fred S. Thomas, Haverfordwest Grammar School, division A.; Esther J. Thomas, Cardigan County School, division A,; and Owen R. Howell, Narberth County School, division B. It was decided that in future no candidate be presented without an undertaking to proceed to a place of higher education. The question of experiments in agriculture was considered, and the managers of St. David's County School were informed that if they can obtain a field for experimental purposes, the committee would supply seed and manure, and supervise the work. The managers, however, wonld have to supply or arrange for the supply of labour. Sketch plans for a new school at Goodwick were considered, and Mr J. Harries urged that the new building should be proceeded with at once, otherwise the Board of Education would stop the grant. Dr. Griffith said that the plans of all the new schools should be before them by the next meeting. The position was becoming very serious. At Milford Haven the overcrowding was such that they were expecting the grant to be stopped at any moment. A recommendation asking the architect to prepare forthwith the plans of the new school at Goodwick and the enlargements of Milford County School was adopted. It was decided to establish a school at Hook for sixty children.

SPECIAL MEETING. His Worship the Mayor (Councillor C. Farley) presided over a special meeting of the Tenby Town Council held on Monday afternoon, when the other members present were Aldermen Griffiths, Leach and Chiles and Councillors George Thomas, Sandercock, Mason, W. H. Thomas, Wilfrid Rees, Truscott and Tucker, to- gether with the various officials. The minutes of the last quarterly meeting having, been duly confirmed, on the proposition of Alderman Leach, seconded by Mr Truscott, the Council proceeded to sign money orders, but be- fore doing so, Mr Mason asked that a statement as to the con- dition of various accounts might be produced. Mr Newton, (representing the Borough Trea- surer) handed the following statement :-District Account in credit, R890 2s. 3d.; Estate, debit, JE309 15s. 6d.; Water, debit, JE73 Is. 4d. i Pier and Harbour, debit, JE562 4s. 5d.

Richards, blacksmith, 10s.; transfer cheque, IC17 19s. 8d. I Tenby Cottage Hospital, annual subscription, JE5. Mr Mason said he did not understand why they had a transfer cheque. Mr Eastlake (Borough Accountant) explained that it was placed to the credit of the Estate Account. The Mayor said it was paying rent. It was explained that the cheque to the Cottage Hospital was also a transfer. The Mayor said there was one little matter he should like to mention. Some weeks ago the local boatmen got up aquatic sports, which were the means of drawing about 1600 people to the Victoria Pier, thus bringing in the Corporation nearly £7. The subscription to the sports were not quite up to the year before, and the committee had approached him and asked if he thought the Corporation would give them something. He mentioned the matter at a Finance meeting, and a. couple of the members were in favour of giving three guineas, whilst one member was in favour of two guineas. If the Council could continued the Mayor, possibly give the boatmen three guineas they ought to it would not be half of what their sports brought to the Pier; and be- sides giving great amusement to visitors the sports were carried out very well. Mr George Thomas proposed that the Counci give the boatmen three guineas. Mr W. H. Thomas, seconded. The Town Clerk suggested that the suspension of the Standing Orders should be included in the resolution, and this was agreed to, on the proposal of Mr W. H. Thomas, seconded by the Mayor. The resolution to give the boatmen three guineas was carried. Mr W. H. Thomas said that now the Standing Orders were suspended he might be in order in calling attention to the rescue from drowning by a man named Richards, particulars of which had been published. He thought the matter ought to be brought before the Royal Humane Society and some recognition obtained of what was un- doubtedly a very plucky rescue. After some discussion The Mayor said he would be very pleased to send the facts to the Society, and it was agreed to leave the matter in his Worship's hands. Various coumittee reports were then confirmed and adopted. Mr Mason enquired whether the Borough Sur- veyor had got the ground plan in connection with the South Parade cottages. Tho Mayor said that was a matter which he thought would come on in committee; it was not brought to the Council before it had been before the committee. Mr Mason then asked what about the field which Messrs. Rees were going to give up on Sep- tember 29th. Was it going to be given up, or were the Council going to let them go on ? Did not the Corporation come into possession of that field on September 29th ? The field referred to was by the Gas Works. He understood Messrs. Rees had been given notice to give it up. The Mayor thought they got notice to give up the field. Alderman Chiles said Messrs. Rees had only just taken that field above the Gas Works. Mr Mason asked whether it was not a fact that they had given notice to some tenant to give up a field for the purpose of workmen's dwellings The Town Clerk—That is right. Mr Mason Is the field to lie vacant, or what are you going to do ? The Town Clerk—It will be a matter for the committee. The matter then dropped and the meeting ter. minated.
AI LIVERPOOL WILL NOT BE AFFECTED. A meeting of the Mersey Docks and Har- bour Board was recently held at Liverpool. Mr R. Gladstone (chairman) said that there was no truth in the erroneous impression which had got abroad that the calling of American liners at Holyhead and Fishguard was doing injury to the port of Liverpool. One-third of the passengers for America formerly went direct from the Liverpool River- side Station to London. Those were the passengers who would be landed at the Welsh ports, and there was absolutely no loss to Liverpool. As the steamers came on to Liver- pool the board's revenue was unaffected, and the more attractive the Welsh ports were made the more would they draw into them vessels which would otherwise go to Channel ports. Despite the depression of trade, the Dock Board accounts up to July last would show that, after paying all debts, they carried £100,000 to the sinking fund, and still had a balance to their credit.
-A. 'r PEMBROKESHIRE SITE VALUES. To the Editor of the Tenby Observer. SIR,-At a public meeting at Haverfordwest on the 18th inst., Mr Fersht made one of his usual mistakes regarding a site of ground at Monkton the property of the Bush Estate, and which was required for the Infants' School. He stated that the land was let at £4 10s. an acre, and that 4/5ths of such acre was sold to the School Board for £ 472. At the meeting referred to, Mr A. B. Williams, a local solicitor, moved a vote of thanks to Mr Fersht for telling this falsehood. The actual facts are as follows:—The land in question was let at 92 10s. per acre the size of the plot was approximately an acre: and it was sold to the Board for £ 450. Kindly insert this in your next issue. Yours faithfully, „ „ THOMAS C. MEYRICK. Bush, Pembroke, September 28th, 1909.
