A grand concert will be given in the Assembly Rooms on New Year's Night by the Tenby United Mixed and Male Voice Choirs, when the first part of the programme will consist of a cantata, followed by a varied selection of other items. Full particulars later. We are officially informed (says the South Wales Daily News) by the Cunard Steamship Company, that after the 1st of January, 1910, and during the remainder of the winter season, the Cunard Company's mail steamers leaving New York on Wednesdays will sail direct from that port to Fishguard, omitting the call at Queen stow n. Commander P. D. Martell, R.N., visited Pembroke Dock-yard on Saturday for the pur- pose of inspecting the turbine machinery of the unarmoured cruiser Bellona, which is now being opened out for examination preliminary to the 24 hours' acceptance trial, upon the satisfactory conclusion of which the machinery will be taken over from the engineer contractors. 00.0 The anniversary services in connection with the Tenby Auxiliary of the London Missionary Society will take place in the Congregational Church on Sunday, November 28th, when the preachers will be the Rev. D. F. Rittenhouse, M.A., B.D., of San Francisco, at 11 a.m. and the Rev. H. C. Nutter, of Central Africa, at 2.30 and 6 p.m. On the following Wednesday evening a public missionary meeting will be held, under the chairmanship of Mr George Prout, when the Rev. Neville Jones, of the Mission House,.and others will speak. In connection with the visit of Miss Inez Howard's Company next week, we notice the name of Miss Josie Belham, a young lady who passed several years of her earlier life in Tenby and who was a scholar at the Wesleyan Day School under Mr James Gower. Miss Belham has made pathetic child life her study, and has had several important engagements with leading companies, notably with the No. 1 Company Two Little Vagabonds, in which she sustained the part of Wally" up to the close of its lengthy run. A scheme has been adopted by the Carmar- then Gas Company under which the workmen will share in the profits by receiving a per- centage on their wages calculated upon the price of gas. A standard price is fixed at which no bonus is paid, and when the price is re- duced a percentage is added for every penny per cubic foot reduction. The scheme will not affect the maximum dividend of the share- holder, that being definitely fixed. It is ex- pected to benefit the company and the work- men, encouraging the latter to take deeper in- terest in their work and thus reduce the price of gas, which will in turn benefit the consumers. On his re-appointment on the Milford Haven Port Sanitary Authority at the Milford Urban District Council on Friday evening, Mr J. Ll. Davies said that the authorities were being urged by the Board of Trade to provide an expensive hospital on land. That would cost the district a very big sum of money, and he trusted that the Board of Trade would be in- duced to modify their requirements. Although the present hospital ship had been in existence for over 30 years there had never been a case for isolation at the port. He hoped to have some definite information to communicate to the Council shortly. Several correspondents have called our atten- tion to the fact that last week a Narberth paper published certain statements reflecting inju- riously upon the public health of Tenby, and in retaliation for this unnecessary notice it has been suggested by one of our correspondents that the whole of the newsagents in the town should co-operate and boycott the sale of the journal in question. Many tradesmen and lodging-house keepers have expressed their indignation in unmeasured terms at the publi- cation of these injurious statements, and we understand that as a practical protest many former local subscribers will cease taking in the paper. »x The new unarmoured cruiser Blanche, which will be the third vessel of the Boadicea class proper, will be launched from Pembroke Dock- yard about 3.15 p.m. to-day (Thursday). Lady Philipps, wife of Sir Owen Philipps, K.C.M.G., M.P., will name and launch the ship. A day or two after the launch, the Blonde, a sister ship, for commencing which preparations have been in progress for some time past, will be laid down in the slip (No. 5) which the Blanche will vacate. The four vessels constitute all of the class at present either built, building, or pro- jected. The ships of the City class, although sometimes referred to as Boacliceas, are im- provements on the type, being much larger y 1-1 than the original and different in other repects. 0 Mr Lewis Thomas, coal merchant, Tenbv has removed from Lower Park Road to his new premises and yard in Edward Street and Hound's Lane, When some months ago Mr Thomas, with a good deal of enterprise and public spirit, purchased the dilapidated, semi- completed buildings in Hound's Lane, he con- verted them into a couple of respectable looking dwelling houses, with spacious coalyard, stab- ling (six stalls), hay loft, weighing office, etc., adjoining, the improvement to this part of the town being most marked. For very many years these half-finished tumble-down buildings were an eyesore which everyone deplored, but which no one seemed able to remove, although the Corporation made several efforts in that direction. Mr Thomas has now come to the rescue, and brought about quite a transforma- tion in the appearance of things. At the Tenby Congregational School-room on Wednesday evening of last week, the 17th inst., the Rev. D. F. Rittenhouse, M.A., B.D., of 'San Francisco, delivered his popular lecture, entitled "Rainbow Chasers." The subject attracted a crowded audience, and the lecturer was in his best form. His resources of facts, illustrations, and telling points were boundless, and his eloquence burning. In the course of his lecture he made frequent references to the prohibition of the Liquor Traflic. From his- torical references to the beneficial results of prohibition in the United States of America, he made out a clear case in favour of the total prohibition of the Liquor Traffic in every coun- try. Wherever honestly tried it had proved a financial, social, moral, and national blessing. The chair was occupied by the Rev. J. Lloyd Williams, B.A., supported by the Revs. B. Lewis, T. Lodwig Evans, and Leon Thomas, Bristol. • Mr William Davies Lewis, of North Sodson, Narberth, solicitor, of the firm of Messrs. Thomas and W. D. Lewis, who died on the 26th September last, aged 50 years, left estate of the gross value of £18,973 Os. 9d., with net personalty £14,311 7s. Id., and probate of his will, dated 28th February, 1908, has been granted to his widow, Mrs Martha Lewis, of North Sodson. The testator left to his said wife his household and personal -effects and a legacy of jSlOOO, and subject to her interest he left the funds of his marriage settlement to his sisters Laura Gertrude Bellamy and Edith Mary Lewis and his brother John Davies Lewis, R50 to the Pembrokeshire and Haver- fordwest Infirmary, £ 25 to the Pembroke Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, jSSO to his clerk, Jonah John, jSlQ each to his servants William Thomas and Benjamin Williams. Ho directed that his wife should on no account dispose of his old pony Kruger, his mares Victoria and Jenny, or his dogs Major, Bell, and Pharo, but when his wife shall have no further use of them they are to be painlessly destroyed by a good veterinary surgeon. The residue of his estate the testator left as to one moiety to his wife absolutely, and one moiety upon trust to pay JE250 each to his nephews and nieces, and the ultimate remainder to his said brother and two sisters, Laura Gertrude Bellamy, Edith Mary Lewis, and John Davies Lewis. I At the Pembroke-Dock County Court yester- day (Wednesday), Frederick Charles Holmes, cab proprietor, Upper Frog Street, Tenby, sued Bert Wickham, of the Coach and Horses, Tenby, for balance for hire of conveyance, and an order was made for payment at the rate of 5s. a month, and costs. The Royal Mail Steam Packet Company have just published particulars of two trips to Madeira from Southampton on the 10th and 24th December, for the Christmas Holidays. The outward voyages will be made in luxurious South American mail steamers, and the return journeys by the comfortable new steamers engaged in the R.M.S.P. Morocco service. The time occupied will be sixteen days for the moderate charge of £ 18, including six days hotel accommodation in Madeira. The Tenby agent for the Royal Mail Company is Mr F. B. Mason, St. Julian Street. The London Gazette announces the promotion to the brevet rank of colonel of Lieutenant- Colonel the Hon. W. Lambton, C.M.G. At Magersfontein Major Lambton fell, badly wounded. The brave stretcher-bearers were ready to carry him to the rear, where he could have had attention but the major, seeing that the stretcher-bearers parties drew down upon themselves a withering fire, refused to be moved. He lay on the ground, at his own desire, without food or water for 37 hours. The story is to be found in Lord Methuen's despatch. Major Lambton recovered suffi- ciently to be able to fight on many other days, doing duty with the Staff. He won further mention in despatches, as well as the D.S.O., both medals, and many clasps. too "In many respects," says a correspondent writing of the County, "Pembrokeshire, which is regarded as the premier shire of the Princi- pality, bears a striking resemblance to the Gower Peninsula, which is and has been from time immemorial called Little England beyond Wales.' In Gower the people come of an old Flemish stock; so they do in Pembroke while for historical associations it is almost as rich as the Premier County. Its scenery also bears some similarity to that of Pembrokeshire par- ticularly is this the case in the matter of the coast line, the cliffs, craigs, and rocks, being of the same rugged boldness as one sees along the Pembrokeshire seaboard. Another similarity between the two places is the almost entire absence of Welsh as a means of speech between the inhabitants, while some of the customs in Gower are those of the people in the far- removed rural parts of Pembrokeshire." Surgeon-Lieutenant-Colonel George Richard Turner Phillips, of 13, Grimstone Avenue, Folkestone, and late of 28, Palace Court, London, formerly of Haverfordwest, J.P. for Haverfordwest, surgeon-lieutenant-colonel of the Pembroke Imperial Yeomanry, and on the Medical Reserve of Officers, formerly surgeon to the Great Western Railway Company and to H.M.S. Essex, who died 25th September last, aged 68 years, eldest son of the late Mr Richard Phillips, of Moat, Pembroke, left estate of the gross value of j311,555 Os. 8d., of which the net personalty has been sworn at £ 10,925 10s. lOd. Probate of his will, dated 2nd June, 1904, has been granted to Mr William Edward Picton Phillips, of 4, Southwick Place, Hyde Park, W., and power is reserved to grant probate also to his brother-in-law, Mr Walter Maxwell Hannay, of Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.A. The testator left to his wife, Mrs Marion Elizabeth Petronel Phillips, £100 and his personal effects, and he left the residue of his property to her during widowhood, with remainder to his daughter, Violet Mary Phillips. He left the funds of his second marriage settlement to his wife for life, with remainder to his daughter, Violet Mary Phillips, and a policy for B1000 and accretions, being part of the funds of his first marriage settlement, as to one half to his daughter, Violet Mary Phillips, and one half to his son, Hugh Richard Phillips.
HEAVY MAIL LANDED. SOME NOTABLE PASSENGERS. The Cunard Liner Lusitania arrived at Fish- guard at eight o'clock on Monday night, and landed what were for the port a record number of passengers and mails. The vessel was sighted at 7.35 in beautiful moonlight and admirable weather conditions. There were 265 saloon passengers, 61 second, and 13 third, 2362 mails, and 1171 packages. Many distinguished persons were among., the travellers, including Mrs Astor, Sir Thomas Lipton, and Lord Northcliffe. SIR T. LIPTON'S INTENTIONS. Sir Thomas told a Press correspondent he would again attempt to lift the America Cup under universal rules with a new yacht. Hitherto he had raced under rules which were neither English nor American. COTTON MAKER'S SCARE. In a chat with Mr P. M. Coates, of the famous thread firm which yearly declares such tremen- dous profits, a Press correspondent was informed that he had been over to Canada simply to arrange for the transfer of capital to that country, owing to the present Budget, which, he declared, was a. disgraceful one, and would simply chase money out of this country if carried. The way the Government was acting was nothing short of scandalous. He had greater faith in Canada for investing capital.
LADY FISH MERCHANT'S AFFAIRS. Mr Bryant, Deputy Registrar, presided at the Pembrokeshire Bankruptcy Court, at Pem- broke-Dock, on Friday last. Annie Elizabeth Burr, fish merchant, Milford Haven, whose state- ment off affairs showed a deficiency of JE86 3s. lid. came up for public examination. Debtor attri- buted her failure to want of capital and trade, and to bad debts. The whole of the unsecured creditors' claims were for goods supplied to the business. The examination was closed.
FARMER'S DIFFICULTIES. William Roberts, farmer, Gorse, Camrose, whose estate showed a deficiency of JE193 19s., said he was married 23 years ago, and bad twelve children, eight of whom were living at home with him. He had found the rent to be very much too high, and with the death of some valuable stock and the bad harvest last year, he was obliged to file his petition. The examination was formally adjourned to enable the debtor to produce fuller particulars. Mr A. B. Williams, solicitor, Haverfordwest, apveared for the debtor.
