Moderate Tariff. Porter. Captain E. A. Forbes, of Saundersfoot, has just' purchased "Sunnyside," Begelly, in con- nection with the additions and alterations to which Mr E. Glover Thomas, architect, Tenby, has been instructed to prepare plans. The French schooner Josephine, which arrived at Swansea on Wednesday evening of last week, reported that during heavy weather off Lundy Island, Pierre Coic (14), the ship's boy, was washed overboard and drowned. The London and North-Western Railway Company has made an offer to the spas of Central Wales to inaugurate a great advertising scheme on their behalf similar to that which has proved so beneficial to the North Wales coast towns during this year's season. There is every likelihood that the offer will be accepted. Sanger's Animated Pictures and Variety En- tertainment are this week appearing in the Public Hall, Tenby, and attracting large audiences. This evening (Thursday), to-mor- row (Friday), and Saturday night a special programme will be given. The pictures in- clude many films new to Tenby, and are well worth seeing. At the Public Hall, Tenby, last (Wednesday) night, Mrs Swan, of London, delivered an in- teresting lecture on "The Budget." The meeting, which was held under the auspices of the Tenby Women's Liberal Association, was presided over by Mr C. F. Egerton Allen, J.P. A more detailed notice of the proceed- ings is held over till next week. 0+0 The alterations and additions to business premises at Church Stretton, Shropshire, for Mr T. H. Humphreys, butcher, and recently opened, were carried out from plans prepared by Mr E. Glover Thomas, architect, Tenby, who has also received instructions to prepare plans for a new villa residence for the same gentleman. A temperance meeting was held at the Tenby Presbyterian School-room on Monday evening under the auspices of the Star of Tenby Lodge. Mr S. Stanton, of Cardiff (agent of the English Grand Lodge of Wales), attended as deputation and delivered an eloquent and masterly address on temperance to an attentive and appreciative audience. Mrs Peerless presided with her usual ability. At the St. David's Church, Haverfordwest, on Wednesday of last week the Bishop of St. David's inducted the Rev. Joel J. Davies, B.A., as rector of Prendergast. There was a large congregationl. The induction service was conducted by the Bishop, assisted by Arch- deacon Williams. The new rector having taken the oaths, the Bishop delivered a sermon, in the course of which he said their new rector was a hard working man. The Bishop said he knew him at college, and the good work which he had done at Tenby he thoroughly appre- ciated. The London Gazette contains an order of the Board of Agriculture, dated October 11th, which states that the Narberth (Markets and Sales) Order of 1907 shall not apply to the holding of a market, fair, or sale of animals on the 20th day of October in the current year, or to the exposure for sale of animals on that date in or upon any road or street within the Urban district of Narberth. Captain Melville H. Ingram, of the Carmar- then Artillery, has been granted the honorary rank of major. He got his rank in the old 2nd Glamorganshire Royal Artillery Volunteers at Cardiff in 1893, and in the Militia at Carmar- then in 1908, and he holds the honorary rank of lieutenant in the regular army, gained for ser- vice with the Imperial Yeomanry in the Boer war. The London Gazette contains a notice that the Chief Inspector of Factories has appointed Dr. E. W. Price to be certifying surgeon under the Factory and Workshop Act for the Narberth district of Pembrokeshire. The Chief Inspector of Factories gives notice that in consequence of the death of Dr. T. J. Evans, an appointment as certifying surgeon under the Factory and Workshop Act at Llansarnel, Carmarthenshire, is vacant. The annual meeting of the Carmarthen Sports and Attractions Committee was held last week, the Mayor (Mr John Crossman) presiding. The treasurer (Mr C. Haydn Williams) reported a loss on the Easter and Whit Monday's meetings, and also on the August Bank Holiday festival, the total result of the year's trading being a loss of £65 4s. 9d. Mr J. C. H. Port- nell was re-elected secretary, and Mr J. F. Morris consulting solicitor. News reached the owners of the Belfast steamship Kelpie on Monday that during the passage from Newport to Cork, coal-laden, John Middleton, able seaman (40), was during a terrific gale washed overboard at the entrance to the Bristol Channel. The vessel was imme- diately stopped, but before a boat could be I lowered his comrades saw him throw up his hands and disappear. The weather^was so stormy that the vessel had subsequently to put back to Cardiff Roads. M-« The War Office have decided to reduce the number of companies in the Glamorganshire R.G.A. by four. This is owing to the fact that four companies have been raised in Pembroke- shire, and as these companies have now become thoroughly efficient they have been entrusted with the defence of the Pembrokeshire coast, and their efficiency has thus removed the neces- sity for the continuance of the existence of a corresponding number of the companies at present composing the Glamorganshire corps. --South Wales Daily News. The annual competitions of the Swansea Bay Sea Angling Association, held at The Mumbles, has resulted in Mr J. Nixon winning the first prize for the heaviest total of fish caught, Mr H. Alford second, and Mr F. J. Picklord third. Mr W. Meggitt won the prize for the heaviest single fish (21b 4ioz.), Mr George Dickens the prize for the second heaviest fish, and Mr George Matthews the prize for the heaviest brace of fish (31b. 14ioz.). Miss Hathaway won the prize for the heaviest total weight of fish caught by a lady member. The crops of 1909 (says Monday's Mark Lane Express) are threshing out rather well so far as sheer bulk is concerned, but the state of samples is most discouraging. The land is in nine parishes out of ten too wet for the plough or drill, weeds are simply rampant, and no chance of the Michaelmas clearing of the land has presented itself. The outlook is dismal in many counties and hopeful in none. Those who can afford to keep their corn till the season turns to drier conditions will be fortunate. Wheat gradients are between 33s. 7d. per quarter at Reading and 27s. 4d. at Berwick.
■ I NOTICE OF APPEAL GIVEN. With regard to the Tenby motor case re- ported in our columns last week, when Sir Thomas Meyrick's chauffeur was convicted at the local Police Court of dangerous driving and fined three guineas and costs, we understand that notice of appeal against this decision has been given by Mr Gilbertson, solicitor, Pem- broke, who appeared for the defence. The appeal, which is the first against a decision of -the Tenby Justices for very many years—there being a clean sheet in this respect during Mr Robert Lock's regime as clerk to the magistrates —will be heard at the next Pembrokeshire Quarter Sessions in January.
SALE OF SALVAGE AT MILFORD DOCKS. At Milford Docks on Tuesday afternoon, Mr Frank B. Mason, auctioneer and Lloyd's sub- agent at Tenby, conducted the sale of many tons of salvage recovered from the wreck of the steam- ship Langton Grange, which, by the way, meant the paying over by the underwriters of a sum of no less than JE61,000, for which amount she was insured. The lots were of a most miscellaneous description, ranging from dainty wine glasses or silver-plated goods to complicated engines or luxurious cabin furniture. Metal pipes realized as much as £45 per ton, and, as is usual with salvage sales, prices generally ruled high, although canvas, sails, and awnings did not come up to expectations in this respect. Splendid life-boats fitted with copper tanks were knocked down for about £6 apiece, while useful gigs went for £4 15s. each. The immense anchors, cable chains, and manilla hawsers had been disposed of privately. The whole of the arrrngements were m the capa- ble hands of Mr John Phillips, Lloyd's Agent for Milford Haven, the same gentleman who con- ducted the affairs relating to H.M.S. Montagu, wrecked on Lundy Island.
PEMBROKE-DOCK RATEPAYERS' MEETING. A general meeting of the Pembroke-Dock Ratepayers' Association was held at the Mar- ket House, Pembroke-Dock, last week, to consider the claims of municipal candidates recommended by the Association Committee. Mr H. Hinchliffe, chairman of the Association, presided, and addresses were delivered by Messrs. T. H. Edwards and W. B. Vaughan, the two candidates recommended by the com- mittee. Mr Edwards dealt with the narrow area within which the streets were watered by the Corporation water cart, and contended that people who lived outside the main streets of the town were just as much entitled to the service of the Corporation water cart as business people and the leading residents. Alderman W. Phillips, in reply, drew attention to the cost entailed by providing water, but he was informed that it was not contended that more water should be used, but that the water should be distributed over a wider area. Mr W. B. Vaughan urged that if an electrical installation were to be introduced it should be financed by a private company, and not by the Corporation. A resolution approving of the adoption of Messrs. Edwards and Vaughan as candidates of the association was adopted. Other candidates for the three vacancies are the retiring members, Councillor Charles Young (Mayor), and Councillors J. Grieve and T. Davies.

COMMITTEE MEETINGS. SOUTH PARADE IMPROVEMENT. THE COAL YARD "DEAL." SEATS ON THE BEACHES AND PROMENADES. OFFER BY LONDON FIRM. THE NORTH CLIFF TREES. ALLEGED MUTILATION. The usual meetings of the Tenby Corporation Committees took place in the Council Chamber on Monday afternoon, under the chairmanship of the Mayor (Councillor C, Farley). The minutes of the previous Sanitary Committee having been read, Councillor Mason invited the committee to direct the Borough Surveyor to inspect the gardens bordering on the stream in Lower Saltern, in at least two of which house refuse had been deposited on the extreme edge of the road and fell into the water. This was agreed to.—A letter from the Local Government Board sanctioning Dr. A. D. Reid's appointment as Medical Officer of Health for another year was read —Dr. Reid reported that the Isolation Hospital had been closed, but, unfortunately he had been obliged to re-open same for a patient, whom he (the Medical Officer) felt sure had caught infection outside the town.—The Engi- neer to the Post Office applied for permission to fix three telegraph poles in Trafalgar Road. Alderman Leach and Councillor Mason declared that more care must be exercised in giving per- mission for the placing of these poles, which were a great eyesore to the houses opposite and in the end the matter was left in the hands of the Borough Surveyor to report upon.—The Gate House Hotel Company Limited, and Mr Ivy Gibbs, draper, The Norton, wrote complain- ing of the dense foliage in front of their respec- tive establishments, and during the discussion which followed it transpired that Mr Ivy Gibbs, without permission, had mutilated a tree on the cliff. Some members suggested that Mr Ivy Gibbs be given notice to quit the small piece of ground opposite his premises, but in the end the whole matter was referred to the Tree Commit- tee.—Councillor Tucker complained that Bank Lane was being used by carts, which passed over the High Street pavement; and it was resolved to exhibit a notice to the effect that there was no thoroughfare for vehicles.—An informal application from the Tenby Miniature Ride Club asking the Council to excuse their indebtedness of two guineas for gas was with- drawn after a little conversation to the effect that the ladies' club paid for gas and a good subscription to the funds. Coun- cillor George Thomas declared that the range should be removed from the Market Hall to Fire Brigade Station in South Parade, as several complaints were being received with regard to the nuisance caused by the repeated firing.— Councillor Mason proposed Alderman James Griffiths be invited to accept an exchange of land in lieu of purchase by the Town Council of his coalyard at the top of Trafalgar Road. Mr Mason said he had ascertained that the rent paid for the yard was £5 per annum, and not j510 as stated at the last meeting but to pre- vent any further discussion as to the value of the land he suggested that the Borough Sur- veyor be asked to prepare a small sketch plan showing proposed new road, and giving Alder- man Griffiths an equal superficial area of what must be a very much improved building site. As Alderman Griffiths' property would receive a great deal of betterment, he hoped very much that he would fall in with the suggestion, for as the Council only wished to make a town im- provement, there was no necessity for them to buy land for which they had no immediate use. Alderman Leach and others considered the suggestion a good one, but that the Borough Surveyor should prepare the plans before Alderman Griffiths was approached. This was agreed to.—Councillor Mason stated that by looking over a hedge he had been able to see into the store ground belonging to the Cor- poration which members were not allowed to enter without; an offici..lin chargc. (Laughtor ) Upon doing this he saw in the yard a stock of iron guards for young trees, and he proposed that during the next month or two some suit- able trees should be planted in St. John's Croft and these guards used for their protec- tion. It was stated that the guards belonged to Mr Clement Williams, who would probably raise no objection to their being used, and the matter was referred to the Tree Committee.— A letter was read from the parents of the young men who had damaged a Corporation seat, pro- mising to make good the damage done.—Messrs. T. and H. Rees, livery stable proprietors, wrote accepting the terms of the Corporation for the grazing of Knowle Park and another letter was received from Mr Bancroft, asking that the whole of the income tax paid by Mrs Mun- caster should be allowed her. This was agreed to.—The lease of the Watch-house on the Castle Hill, for 21 years, at a rent of jS20 per annum, to the Admiralty, was read and approved of.— An application from Messrs. Vigors and Com- pany for permission to place hooded cane chairs on the promenades and seashore was read, and followed by a rather lively discussion. Even- tually, Councillor Mason proposed, and the Mayor seconded, that the Town Council write Messrs. Vigors offering to allow these chairs to be placed on the Royal Victoria Pier, Castle Hill, and both beaches, subject to terms being arranged. Councillor George Thomas proposed and Councillor Sandercock seconded, as an amendment, that the offer be not entertained. As an equal uumber of votes was given for the proposal and amendment, the Mayor gave his casting vote in favour of Councillor Mason's motion.—The question of re-thatching the old dairy now standing in a portion of the Town Council's store yard in Heywood Lane was brought up, but at the request of the Borough Surveyor it was allowed to stand over, as he would have a proposal to make in connection with same.—It was agreed tbat the Corporation Accountant be asked to submit a list of tenants who are in arrears with their rents.—Councillor Mason protested that although he had been a member of the Town Council for nearly twelve months no excused list of ratepayers had been submitted to any meeting at which he had been present,—Councillor W. H. Thomas invited the Borough Surveyor to inspect a depression which he noticed on Sunday over the Culvert near the Old Steam Mill.—The Surveyor reported that the new shed on the Old Pier, which was being put up for Messrs. Tilton, of Bristol, was not delayed for the want of materials, all of which were in hand; he would get on with it as fast as weather permitted.—The Town Clerk invited discussion upon the ownership of the old boat-house which exists between the wall of the Harbour Master's Office and the Sea- men's Rooms. He stated in 1808 the Tenby Corporation granted a lease to Sir Joseph Pax- ton for 99 years of this site. The Paxton pro- perties came into the hands of the late Major Wells, who appears to have granted a lease about 1851 to the Shipwrecked Mariners' So- ciety, and this society handed over their interest together with the life-boat to the Royal National Life-boat Institution, who used it until the erec- tion of the new life-boat house on the South Sands, when they granted the use of it to the Admiralty, rent free. It was resolved that the Town Clerk be asked to go into the question of title very closely and report to the next meeting" Councillor Tucker complained that he had been trying to make arrangements with carters for the removal of thirty loads of black sand from the Harbour, but had only been able to get sand discoloured by coals. It was unani- mously agreed that the Council were to allow sixpence a load only for the removal of the mud or foul sand, and the Mayor and Deputy-Mayor were requested to see the Harbour Master in order that this foul stuff should be removed in accordance with the wish of the Council.— Councillor Mason stated that he had placed an order with carters for twenty loads of same stuff, which was a valuable manure for gardens or grass lands and it was of the first im- portance that the delivery of the mud should be watched.—The Surveyor advised repairs to outbuildings at the Marsh Farm, costing £107 and it was agreed to carry out same.
NEVER ABSENT THROUGH ILLNESS. Last Sunday Captain John Driver, the senior captain of the Great Western Company's fleet at Fishguard, retired at the age of 68, after 46 years service with the company. In 1863 Mr Driver, who is still in excellent health and vigour, joined the cross-Channel vessels at Milford, Messrs. Ford and Jackson being then the shippers for the G. W.R. Co. In 1882 Captain Driver was placed in command of the ss. Milford, succeeding to the Waterford, Pembroke, and the other Waterford vessels in turn. It was in the Pem- broke, which some years ago was converted into a screw steamer, that Captain Driver finished his long and successful career with the Great Western Company on Sunday afternoon, when he brought the vessel into Fishguard with a large consign- ment of cattle. He has never had occasion to absent himself through illness. Last Thursday's experience crossing from Waterford to Fisbguard was the worst he had known for many years.
