If elected, I would join with others in the demand to know Why JE200 per annum is paid to an absentee Borough Treasurer. I am in favour of Corporation work being con- tracted for, and the lowest tender of reliable men accepted. I believe Tenby has every chanee of a prosperous future if its local government were carried out on more progressive lines. In offering you my services I have no personal or party interests to advance beyond my desire to usefully represent you on the Council. I am the nominee of no Political or Municipal Party, but solicit your suffrages as an absolutely Independent Candidate. As on the occasion of my former candidature, I do not propose making a personal canvass of the rate- payers, believing that the spirit of the Ballot Act will be the better respected by refraining from ex- tractinv pre-election promises.

TENBY COTTAGE HOSPITAL. THE claims of the Tenby Cottage Hos- pital on the generosity of the local public are such that we feel sure they only require bringing forward to obtain a practical recognition. In the past it has been our privilege to advocate the cause of this excellent institution, and we are pleased to think that the Hos- pital has never been in need of funds without a liberal response being made to an appeal for help. To-day we again venture to bring the claims of the Tenby Cottage Hospital before the public. It has achieved a remarkable record of good work during the present year, and although it has a balance in hand, this would soon be exhausted were any sudden and extra demands made upon thfdn6tltuiiun. It is expe- dient that it should be prepared for all emergencies, and we trust that those of our readers who are not regular sub- scribers to the Cottage Hospital will decide to enrol themselves as such. A regularly contributed subscription is what the Hospital management appeal for, and with a good substantial list of this kind they can feel pretty safe as far as the financial side is concerned. At present there are barely 150 regular subscribers on the books of the insti- tution, a small proportion, we feel sure, of those who are in a position in the town to give something yearly. Last year the Cottage Hospital was very hard put to; there was a long and ex- pensive strain upon its resources, but thanks to tho splendid liberality of the public the necessary money was forthcoming to meet the pressure. This state of things has not, fortunately, been repeated during the present year, but it is, of course, quite impossible to know the moment when it may happen again and it is the earnest wish of the management to be prepared for anything approaching a special emer- gency. The chief need of the Tenby Cottage Hospital is more regular sub- scribers, and on behalf of the institu- tion we make a strong appeal for such. Of the continued excellent and devoted work of Mr G. E. Mainland, the Hon. Secretary and Treasurer, it is impos- sible to speak too highly. He has made his work on behalf of the institution a labour of love, and the methodical and conscientious manner in which he dis- charges all the duties of his office fills one with admiration. He is certainly an invaluable man at the helm, and that he may long continue to act as such is, we are sure, the cordial wish of all who have the best interests of this excellent little institution at heart.
THE CULVERT PLANS. WE hasten to congratulate the Tenby Town Council upon the wise decision arrived at last week when it approved of Mr Preece James' Culvert extension plans. The Council's act in this direc- tion is certainly a popular one, meeting as it does with the heartiest approval of all classes in the town. At one time there was an impression abroad that the Corporation intended to go in for the more expensive scheme—a scheme which would ultimately have involved the ratepayers in an expenditure of £11,000 or £ 12,000; but wiser counsels have, happily, prevailed. Mr Preece James' scheme seems to meet the case; it is economical, and provides for effec- tively dealing with the Western Out- fall, which for many years now has been a source of trouble to the town. The final word rests, of course, with the Local Government Board; but in view of the majority by which the scheme has been approved by the Council, there seems little likelihood of its being rejected by the Central Authority. The two members who voted against Mr James' scheme are, naturally, quite entitled to their own opinions, but we cannot help thinking p t, that they would have given more satis- faction to the ratepayers if they had fallen into line with their colleagues and made the adoption of the scheme unanimous.
LOCAL SIFTINGS. _'8' We understand that a new directory of Tenby is in course of preparation. — » — The Star of Tenby Good Templars Lodge will meet at the Presbyterian School-room next Monday at 8 p.m. The annual meeting of the Tenby Golf Club will take place at the Cofrtrg Hotel next Wed- nesday at live p.m. The BELGRAVE HOTEL, Esplanade, Tenby, is now replete with every convenience and accom- modation for visitors.

Lewis) will conduct the service. ■—- An application to rent one of the new shops in High Street has been received from a high- class hairdresser and tobacconist, the firm of dyers who originally agreed to take it having cancelled the arrangement. '0. Mr Sydney James and his Royal Strolling Players will give an entertainment at the Royal Gate House Assembly Rooms, Tenby, on Thursday, December 1st, further particulars of which will be announced later. The Tenby Chrysanthemum Show, after a lapse of several years, is to be revived, and will take place in the Market Hall, on Wednesday, November 16th. Schedules can be obtained from Mr H. Williams, South Cliff Gardens, Tenby. The death-rate of Tenby for the last quarter, which includes the crowded summer season, was the lowest on record. There were only seven deaths, which represents a mortality of 6.35 per 1000—one-third of the record for the corresponding quarter last year. The Rev. Vallance Cook, evangelist, will hold a special ten days' mission at the Tenby Wes- leyan Church, commencing Saturday, October 22nd. There will be an address to women only on Thurday, October 27th, at three p.m., and one to men only on Sunday, October 30th, at the same time. m The marriage of the Rector of Tenby (the Rev. N. Chetwode Ram, M.A.) and Miss Evelyn Clive, youngest daughter of General Edward Clive (late Grenadier Guards), of Perrystone Court, Herefordshire, and 25, Ennismore Gardens, London, will shortly take place. A public meeting under the auspices of the Tenby Women's Unionist and Tariff Reform Association will be held in the Assembly Rooms on Friday, October 28th, when the principal speaker will be Miss Sinclair Rohde. The chair will be taken at eight o'clock by Mr O. W. R. Stokes. The meeting will be open to gentlemen as well as ladies. On behalf of the Tenby Cot in Dr. Barnardo's Homes, a small sale of work will be held at Peerless' Hotel, High Street, next Wednesday afternoon from half-past three till six, when it is hoped that all interested in the work will be present. There will be no charge made for admission. Tea will be provided at sixpence per head. A grand variety entertainment will be given in the Public Hall, Tenby, on Saturday, 29th October next, at 3.15 p.m., in aid of the funds of the Missions to Seamen. Plan of the room can be seen and seats booked at F. B. Mason's Furniture Rooms, St. Julian Street. All the arrangements are in the capable hands of Mrs Stuart Jones and Miss Lingard, the local hon. sees, to the Missions. The Irish Department of Agriculture, at Bantry Petty Sessions on Monday, prosecuted Henry Newman, of Swansea, master of the steam trawler Lahore et Honore, owned by Messrs. O'Neill and West, Cardiff, for illegal trawling in Bantry Bay. It was stated that the defendant was a. persistent offender and had been fined twice for a similar offence. He was fined £50 and £8 8s. costs, half the fine to be recovered from the owners if not paid within eight days. Mr W. H.

Since its introduction into Haverfordwest, the R.A.O.B. has progressed with remarkable rapidity and now embraces within its ranks a large proportion of the adult male population of the town. Two unusually strong Lodges are already in existence, so that it was not sur- prising there should have been such a large gathering of Buffaloes at the banquet given in the Mariners' Hotel, last week, under the auspices of the St. Bride's Lodge No. 1394. Many of the officers and brethren of the parent Lodge, the Picton Castle, participated and the function proved highly enjoyable and inte- resting. Mr and Mrs Arthur Dickinson have just opened an art depot at Ruabon House, Five Arches, Tenby, and are showing a tastefully selected range of goods. In the art department are local and other sketches, drawing and painting materials, art pottery, vases, etc whilst the fancy work section is well stocked with cushion covers, table centres, d'oyleys, silks, cottons, crochet hooks, needles, thimbles, and everything required for needlework. In the household department will be found brooms, brushes, saucepans, tin and enamel ware, wash- leathers, dusters, and a selection of money and labour-saving specialities. Messrs. George Ace, Limited, motor engi- neers and agents, Tenby, Swansea and Haver- fordwest, advise their clients and friends that tho Annual Motor Car Exhibition at Olympia, London, takes place from November 4th to 12th, and that in accordance with their usual custom in vogue for the past ten years, they have arranged for their Mr George Ace to be in attendance each day from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The headquarters of the firm at Olympia will be Humber Stand, No. 47, and Daimler Stand, No. 54. Appointments or arrangements for trial runs may be made by writing to the firm before November 2nd, after which date Mr George Ace, The Motor Club, Coventry Street, London, W., or either of the stands mentioned. From an advance copy of Old Moore's Almanack for 1911, we observe that the weather for July of next year is predicted to be "un- usually stormy," whilst for August the prophet says" the weather will be cold and disappoint- ing." Nor is there much comfort to be found in the prognostication of the elements during September, Old Moore stating that we may experience some violent storms about the end of the month." But if the three "season" months are to be anything but seasonable, Octo- ber seems likely to make up for it in some degree, it being prophesied that we may expe- rience "lovely weather for almost the whole month." It is worth noting that Old Moore's forecasts generally have, of recent years, been remarkably accurate though for the sake of Tenby we may venture to express the hope that next year his summer weather calculations will be just a little "out of it." The experience of last August we have not yet forgotten, and a second edition of such wreather would hardly be prolitable. At last Friday's special meeting of the Tenby Town Council, the Borough Accountant (Mr T. M. Eastlake) presented a statement showing the condition of the various Corporation accounts at the bank on September 29th, which was as follows District, credit, £ 704 6s. lid. Water, credit, £ 78 0s. 5d. Estate, debit,' £109 Is. Harbour, debit, B605 4s. 6d. In the aggregate the nett credit stood at £ 69 4s. 3d. At the Pembrokeshire Quarter Sessions, held at Haverfordwest on Tuesday last, Mr Abel Thomas, Q.C., presiding, Frank Frawil5 (19), collier, pleaded guilty to having feloniously stolen at Tenby on September 10th, 1910, a lady's gold watch and metal neck guard, a gen- tleman's gold scarf pin, and moneys, the pro- perty of Henry James Foracre, Prince's Head, and was sentenced to nine months' hard labour. With regard to the recent petition from the residents of Greenhill Avenue to the Tenby Corporation calling attention to the nuisance caused by mortar-engine situated in that neigh- bourhood, and in reference to which the Council expressed their inability to interfere, statin* that the matter was one for individual action! we have every reason to believe that this inter- pretation of the powers of the Corporation is an incorrect one. According to the Public Health Act, 1875, certain things are enumerated which are described as nuisances liable to be sum- marily dealt with and a chimney which gives off black smoke (the nuisance complained of in this case) is one of them. Councils, the Act says, are required on being informed of such nuisance to serve a notice to abate on the person causing it if he fails to do so he may be sum- moned before the Justices who may make an order to abate the nuisance, and if he does not obey he is liable to penalties. If the summary remedy is thought insufficient a Corporation may apply for an injunction in the High Court We commend Section 94 of the Act to the serious consideration of the Tenby Town Council.
OUTSIDE GENTLEMAN ASKED TO ACCEPT. After the special meeting of the Tenby Town Council held last Friday afternoon a private meeting of mem berB. was held for the purpose of considering the question of the mayoralty for the ensuing year. Including the Mayor (who presided) thtye were twelve members pre- sent. It was unanimously decided to invite Captain David Hughes Morgan, of Tregunter, Brecon, and Cumberland House, Esplanade, Tenby, to accept the office of Mayor of the Borough for the ensuing year. The four ab- sent members of the Council were communi- cated with after the meeting, and asked whether had they been present they would have been in favour of the resolution. It was stated that before sending Captain Morgan the invitation the Town Clerk was instructed to ascertain the feeling of the absent members on the subject. Captain Morgan has accepted the Council's invitation, and will be duly elected Mayor of Tenby on November 9th.
TRANSFER OF LICENSE. MAGISTRATES AND TESTIMONIALS. At the Tenby Police Court on Monday morning, before the Mayor and other magistrates, Mr Bentley Mathias, solicitor, Narberth, applied for a transfer of the- lieense of the George Hotel, Tenby, from Mr Owen Davies to Mr Frank Ernest Williams, Deniston Farm, Martletwv. Mr Albert Edward Chedney, manager to Mr James Williams, Narberth, the owner of the pre- mises, gave evidence as to tho serving of the notices on police and overseers. Mr Mathias .addressing the Bench, said that at present Mr Williams lived at Deniston Farm, Martletwy, and had formerly resided at Swansea. He then put iu testimonials. Sergeant Alfred Thomas, in reply to the Bench, said that enquiries had been made with regard to Mr Williams, and they were perfectly satisfactory. Mr Leach (a magistrate) asked if there was an agreement. Mr Mathias replied in the affirmative. Mr Leach said he would like to see it, and added that the testimonials (which had been passed round the Bench) were not recent. Mr Harries (a magistrate)—No, not one of them. We must have a recent testimonial. Mr Mathias put it to the Bench that they might be satisfied with the enquiries which had been made in the matter by the police. These enquiries were always searching; and he thought that their Worships might rest assured that Mr Williams was a most respectable man. Mr Leach replied that he thought the Justices must be satisfied. He knew they were supposed to leave a good deal in the hands of the police, but not quite everything. He should like to have more recent testimonials. Mr Mathias said he had not seen the testi- monials, but he knew the applicant. Mr Williams said he had been brought up in the business. Superintendent Thomas informed the Bench that the Chief Constable of Swansea stated that Mr Williams had held a full license from May 1902, to September, 1904, and was a man of good character, his licensed house having been always well conducted. He had, added the Superin- tendent, resided in Swansea all his life and been brought up in the licensed trade. Mr Harries—When did he hold a license last ? Superintendent Thomas—From Mav 8th 1902, to September 22nd, 1304. Mr Harries—We want something later. Superintendent Thomas-I cannot give you that. Mr Leach-That is a good long time ago. The Mayor thought they should rely on the police. .Mr Harries—The police can give us no infor- mation. Mr Williams said he was subsequently managing the Singleton Hotel at Swansea for his mother. Superintendent Thomas apologized to the Bench for omitting to state this, the Swansea Chief Con- stable mentioning in his letter that Mr Williams had for some time, subsequent to 1904, managed another licensed premises in the town, and con- ducted same satisfactorily. The Mayor said the application would be granted.
WEST WALES SANATORIUM CONCERT. All we have heard about this concert, which takes place at the Tenby Assembly Rooms next Wednesday, promises to be fulfilled to the letter. The Pembroke Orchestral Society has spared no expense to put before the public not only one of the best, but the best concert ever held in the town. The variety of solo singers appearing will not make the evening monotonous by their continuous appearance. The Male Voice Gwalia. Prize Glee Singers are a host in themselves they have an unprecedented record in musical com- petition. The ladies— Madame Williams Penn, R.A.M., and Madame Lewis Morgan, R.A.M.— have a. reputation, and their names in the musical society of Wales are household words. We shall have the opportunity of hearing one of the largest orchestras that have performed in the town.
