THE JNFLUENZA. Now that the evil wave of influenza is sweeping over the country, prostrating in its course many hundreds, and, in some cases, leaving whole families in bed, I had a most severe attack of the same. I tried various preparations bnt to no purpose; the only effective'treat- ment that I had was TUDOR WILLIAMS' PATENT BALSAM OF HONEY. I bad a constant and troublesome cough, tight chest, and stuffed up nostrils, that I could not sleep at night. I consider that the mass should be made known of this popular drug, which is a pure and simple prepara- tion of Honey. Captain JAMES BROWN. Ctesent, Bradford.

ANTICIPATIONS. The scratching of Yasistas for the Ebor Handi- cap has robbed the race of much of its interest, but still there will be a capital muster at the post so far as numbers are concerned, and I shall content myself by declaring in favour of BUCCANEER AND LORICULA, while SILVER SPUR and KNIGHT OF RUBY may be good place investments. The other events may result as follows :— Welter Handicap-FOLENGO or QUEEN OF THE FAIRIES. Ebor St. Leger-FRIAR LUBIN. Convivial Produce Stakes SALAMONES or TORQUATUS. Falmouth Plate—TOTTENHAM.

YORK AUGUST MEETING. YORK, TUESDAY. A dull and gloomy morning was succeeded by a showery afternoon, and the first day's racing on the Kuavesmire was witnessed under anything but agree- able surroundings. The attendance was, however, in every way satisfactory, and compared favourably with former gatherings, and the fields throughout were of excellent dimensions. The field for the Prince of Wales's Stakes, numbering 16 runners, were a good looking lot, and at the close of the wagering it was a near tiling for favouritism between Priestess and Bushey Park, with Cardrona and May Duke the most fancied of the others. Priestess, who is a rare beginner, quickly drew herself clear, and she came on in front to the half distance, where she was joined by Carmilhan and El Diablo, the latter of whom GOT the better of the race in the last 50 yards, and won by a neck from Mr Maple's pretty filly. The betting that took place on the Ebor Handicap was of a limited description, and Rosebery Despatch, and Buccaneer were each supported at 7 to 1, while at a point more Silver Spur, Heremon, and Lily of Lumley were be- friended. The remainder of the wagering will be found appended. 2.0—Tlie ZETLAND STAKES of 5 sovs each, with 200 added weiarht for :1(YR, Af T.Y.C. Lord Durham's Tinsel, 2Y 6ST 6FC A. Watts 1 MR B.

Rounding the bend Carmilhan took second place to Priestess, and May Duke went on third, with El Diablo drawing up next.

MORNING GALLOPS. YORK, TUESDAY MORNING. If the weather was dull and threatening, fortunately- no rain of any consequence fell at York this morning during exercise hours, and there was a fairly large company present on the Knavesinire to witness the Ebor Handicap horses take their final gallops. Lily of Lumley was one of the earliest out, and (ridden by Piatt), the Asligill mare covered a mile and a half in good style, and pulled up sound and well. Swift (ridden by a stable lad) led Silver Spur (with C. Loates up) the Ebor Handicap distance at a nice pace, and last year's winner, who has under- gone a splendid preparation for the race, pleased everyone with her good looks and free ovl' style of moving, and all connected with Silver Spur are confident that she will again prove successful Sabra (ridden by A. Watts) went a mile and a half, and a similar distance was also covered by Buccaneer. Both are well, and are greatly fancied by their different connections. One of the best gallops of the morning was that in which Heremon (ridden by S. Chandley) took pari) in company with First Consul and Hounds- ditch. He went a mile and a half at a good pace, and Mr Lowther's colt was greatly admired.

Business on the Ebor Handicap was by no means brisk, but the front rank candidates were sup- ported in turn, and Buccaneer, Rosebery Despatch, Silver Spur, and Heremon received attention. Loricula had friends, but Lily of Lumley was almost unmeu- tioned, as were also Alloway, Fitzsimon, and Sabra.

The Procureur de la Republique, at Poulofrne, has notified that all English bookmakers in that city and in Calais must quit the country. A fort- night's grace is allowed to them to clear up their outstanding business. No horse can possibly be going better than Orvieto at the present time, and an dit that he will run without fore shoes in the hit Leger, as he is given to speedy cutting," a term well under- stood by racing men. Apparently list batting in France is killed. It is surprising what a volume of business has been done by the Boulogne firms for years past.

The principal public business was the recommendation of the vestry meeting that the salary of Mr James Allen, rate collector, be increased by £ 25 per annum.—Mr Lewis Jones moved, and Mr Edward Jones seconded, that the increase be granted.—In reply to the Chair- man, Mr Allen said it was true that in addition to his salary as rate collector he received J350 for collecting the borough rate, JB66 revising barrister's allowance, and L30 as vaccination officer-but he reminded the chairman that out of the revising barrister's allowance he paid about 230 for stationery,—Mr J. P. Williams, Taibacb, in- quired why the Local Government Board had on a previous occasion only consented to an increase of £ 25 instead of £ 50 as recommended by the vestry.—The Clerk replied that the Local Government Board were not compelled to give 'any reason.—Mr Hopkin Jones said that Mr Allen had based his application upon the salary given to his predecessor, but he forgot the fact that the increase to the latter was only granted a month previous to his resig- naticyi for the purpose of superannuation allowance. His predecessor did not enjoy the emoluments which Mr Allen received. He (Mr Jones) made out that Mr Allen received a net salary of JB556 lls7d per annum. He was strongly opposed to the increase. Messrs Wm. Jones and Henry David and C. E. Thomas spoke in favour of the motion. Mr David Davies (Neath) said that if the office was vacant they would have plenty of competent candidates who would dis- charge the duties for a much lower salary.— After a heated discussion, 11 voted for the in- crease, and 12 against. The motion was there- fore lost.

Whatman, and tents had been erected on the grounds, but were blown down in tho'morning by the storm which passed ever the place, and in consequence of the very unfavourable state of the weather, rain falling incessantly during the day, it was found necessary to hold the show at the Copper Works Schools. There was a splendid exhibition of flowers, fruit, vegetable, and honey, and had it not been for the bad weather, the show would have proved an undoubted success. There was a very fair attendance in the afternoon and evening, whilst' the exhibits were really good, and attracted much favourable attention. The Punch and Judy show (conducted by Messrs Lewis, Lloyd, and Olive, Carmarthen) was very amusing, whilst the seleotions of the 3rd Glamorgan Volunteer Band, which had been engaged for the day, was much appreciated.

All went well until they passed the shooting-box occupied by Mr McLaren Smith. At that point the owner of the trap, with a party of ladies and gentlemen, drove past in a waggonette, going at great speed down the steep bill. The horse attached to the trap started off after the waggonette at a furious rate, causing the shaft pin to come out. This naturally frightened the animal, which started kicking. In the effort to pull up the horse 'the reins broke, the driver thereby losing all control, and the horse ran the trap violently into the hedge, which brought it to a standstill and threw out all the occupants, with the carriage completely covering them, thus preventing anyone from helping the other. Assistance fortunately came in the per- sons of Messrs David (of the Swansea Bay Rail- way), Rowlands (of Swansea), Morgan and Griffiths, who did their utmost to release the sufferers. Captain Owens sustained an injury to his left leg which necessitated his keeping his bed for a few days. Mr Pardoe was much shaken and inwardly bruised, and though able to get about, suffers a good deal of pain. Mrs Pardoe and her mother are both much shaken and bruised. It is a miracle that the whole party were not very seriously injured.

The deaths corresponded to an annual rate of 18 "0- During the last week the births in the borough of Cardiff were 93, and these were preceded by 100, 73, and 85. Those 93 comprised 54 boys and 39 girls, and corresponded to an annual rate of 25'9 per 1,000 of the population, to have been in the middle of this year 230,283. The mor- tality was again very low, for the deaths were only 38, against 41, 36, 43, and 37 in the previous four weeks. So remarkably good was the health of the borough, that the average of the last six weeks gives only 42. We are unable to recall a geriod in which there has been a succession of good reports. The 38 deaths in the present re-, turn were equal to a rate of only 15.2, and this was as much as 2.8 below that of the 28 great boroughs of England and Wales. There were but six of them with a smaller rate.. In Bristol it was 15'3, being O'l above that on Cardiff. The 38 deaths in the latter included 20 males and 18 females, and of the total 9 were those of infants under one year, and 5 referred to adults who had attained60yearsandupwards.

Bowen Rowlands, David Randell, W. Pritchard Morgan, D. Lloyd George, J. Lloyd Morgan, Thomas P. Price, Samuel T.,Evans, and Thomas Lewis. By this bill it is proposed to appoint a; Secretary of State for Wales. Clause 5, transfers to the Secretary all powers and duties of the Secretary of State so far as they relate to Wales, and except those of the Secretary for War. This.follows the provisions in the Secretary for Scotland Acts, 1885-89," (48 and 49 Vict., c. 61, 50 and51 Vict., c. 52 52 and 53 Vict., c. 16). Clause 5, also transfers to the Secretary the powers (relating to Wales) of the Local Government Board the powers of the Woods and Forests De- partment" and of the Charity Commissioners Clause 6 transfers to the Secretary the powers of the Lord High Chancellor as to the appointment of magistrates in Wales, and provides for their appointment from lists prepared by the borough and county councils. Clause 7 transfers to the secretary some small specified powers of the Privy Council as to Wales. The Secretary is to have power to make certain inquiries in Wales with reference to national industries, and to provide for the conduct of legal proceedings in Welsh: where he deem such provision desirable. Clause. 10 enables the Queen to constitute a Welsh Education Department, of which the (Secretary may be vice-president, and to which the powers of the present Education Department will, as tar as regards Wales, be transferred. This department may make rules for the utilisation, &c., of Welsh in teaching, Clauses 14 to 20 provide for the formation of a Welsh National Council and for its procedure, and Clause 21 defines its powers, which includes application for a charter for a Welsh University and -for establishing a national museum. Clause 24 directed that provisional orders made by the Secretary shall be confirmed by the National Council in lieu of Parliament. The general expenses of the National Council are to be defrayed as those of the county and county' borough councils. The Bill is defined so as, to include Monmouthshire. The attendance at the Conference was very large and representative. It included Mr Alfred Thomas, M.P. Mr Lewis Morris; Alderman Rev. Aaron Davies, Pontlottyn; Rev. Dr. Herber Evans, Carnarvon Rev. Principal Michael D. Jones, Bala Mr Lewis Williams, Cardiff; Alderman David Evans, Llangennech Park Mr Gwilym Evans, Llanelly Mr Councillor Thomas (Cochvarv), Cardiff; Mr John Lewis, Cardiff; Mr Herbert Lewis, chairman Flintshire Qounty Council; Mr Llew.

Mostyn Williams, Rhyl; Rev Gwynors Davies, Bar- mouth Dr Edwards, Dolgelly; Mr Frank Ran- dell, Llanelly Rev J. Gurnos Jones, Newport; B. Rees, Garnant, Pembrokeshire; W. Davies, Treforest; &c., &c. The Rev AARON DAVIES presided, and in his opening remarks said he felt strongly for the advancement and progress ofjmatters of liberty and Home Rule for their country. He was thoroughly in favour of Home Rule, not only for Ireland, but for Wales also. England had Home Rule already, for they ruled themselves and other nationalities' also. Mr D. R. Williams, solicitor, Llanelly, was appointed secretary, and having read the notices convening the meeting proceeded to read letters. received from gentlemen unable to attend. Mr Thomas Ellis, M.P., writing from Cynlas, Corwen, August 22nd, wrote:— My dear Mr Thomas,—I most sincerely regret that I cannot be at Llandrindod for the conference on the ,better government of Wales. The introduction of your Bill and the holding of the conference are most timely for the next election, and the next Parliament will deal with issues of the most vital importance and the closest concern to the future of Wales. The effi- ciency of reforms and measures touching tithes, tem- perance, land, and education in Wales depends most materially upon the development of local and national self-government. Your Bill affords a:well-collsidered and comprehensive basis for discussion. Tho argu- ment advanced by timid and halting politicians that the energetic promotion of a movement or Bill for securing for the Welsh people institutions to manage their own affairs retards dis- establishment has been effectively exploded. I trust that every Liberal association in Wales and Monmonth will carefully discuss and pass judg- ment on your bill so that we may be fully prepared to safeguard the interests of Welsh nationality in future legislation on Home'Itule and Imperial federa- tion. Among the masses of the Welsh people there is a stronj and growing desire for Welsh national unity. lie who works earnestly and steadfasciy for Cymru yn Un Is a national benefactor. I hope that your Biil will give an impetus and a direction to the movement for the unity of Wales. I very much regret that a. previous engagement to preside at a Conference on Welsh education on Tuesday and at an Eisteddvod at Festiniog on •< Wednesday prevent me from attending the Con- ference. Mr Thomas Gee, Denbigh, wrote regretting his unavoidable absence, and added:— In spirit, however, I shall be with you, and earnestly hope you will have as successful a meeting as you can possibly desire. I wish your movement success with all my heart. u n. Writing from Uorth on August Mr VV. Bowen Rowlands, Q.C., M.P., said :— I fear there is little or no chance of my being well enough to go to Llandrindod 011 Tuesday. If the date were further off I might be better as it is I see very little chance. I need hardly say how disappointed I am. Will you very kindly say that I had hoped io be present, but fear it is impossible ? Thanks many for your very kind letters. I heartily wish the Conference «-> 11 nrtccihlp ^Alderman W." J. Parry, Coed Mor Hall, Beth- esda, Bangor, North Wales, wrote I had completed my arrangements to start this morning to attend the Conference, but at the last momenta "an important business here has turned up which will take the pleasuro away from me. As an ardent Home Ruler of no recent growth, as well known to you, I highly approve of the lines upon which your bill has been drawn, and I hope alFof us who are looked upon as extreme men will join hands to improve this, and do all within us to get it passed. The rest will follow. Principal Roberts, Aberystwytb, wrote :— I am much obliged by your kindressiii forwarding me a copy of your Natioual Institutions Bill. I am in entire agreement with its provisions. The promoters of the Bill are doubtless prepared to make every effort to secure some of the urgent objects mentioned in its clauses, such as the Welsh University, even prior to, or independently of, the passing of the entire measure. I much regret that I have to attend an education meet- ing at lestiniog on the 25th, and cannot, therefore, attend the Llandrindod Conference, which I trust will greatly strengthen your hands and those of your colleagues in the furtherance of your most important task. Principal Viriamu Jones,.of University Col- lege, Cardiff, in his letter regretted he was unable to attend to give such help as he might be able- in regard to the educational proposal contained in the bill. He need hardly tell how much he sympathised with the desire to see a better order- ing of their system of education by the foundation of a Welsh University, and he was glad to find plgfrisions in the bill dealing with that important subject. Letters and telegrams of apology were also read from Mr W. Abraham, M.P., Mr David Randell, M.P., Mr Pritchard Morgan, M,P., Mr Fuller Maitland, M.P., Mr D. Lloyd George, M.P., Sir Hussey Vivian, M.P., Mr S. T. Evans, M.P., Mr T. P. Price, M.P., and Mr Frank Edwards, Liberal. candidate for Radnorshire. Mr ALFRED THOMAS, M.P.,who'receivedainosfc ,flattering reception, then proceeded to explain ;the provisions of the Bill, and read extracts from the Gardif Times and ether Welsh papers com-' menting favourably upon the proposals it contained. The large attendance, that day of gentlemen fron-m, different parts of the Principality to discuss the Bill was suf- ficient evidence of the interest taken. in the proposed measure to give him and those with whom he was associated every inducement to persevere in the course they had taken. He recognised those present not merely in their per- sonal capacity, but also as the leaders of Welsh, public opinion, and therefore representing those with whom they were associated—the masses of their fellow-countrymen. (Cheers.) That Con- ference had been convened to give an opportunity to representative men out, of Parliament to dis- cuss the proposals contained m the National Institutions Bill, which had been so aclpiirably drafted by his friend, and a still better friend of Wales, Mr Theodore Dodd. (Applause.) They were, however, in no way wedded ,to the Bill in its present shape, and his colleagues and himself who had backed the measure would be thankful for any suggestions with a view to its amendment pre- vious to its introduction next session. Proceed- ing to give his reasons for introducing the measure, the hon., member pointed out that both Ireland and Scotland had Ministers specially appointed to attend to affairs affecting those countries, but there was one integral portion of the United Kingdom which was not in any distinctive manner recognised by the State. It was fair to ask was this not unjust to the Principality 1 Now they should con- sider the claims of Wales-to be treated as fairly, aye as generously as, any other portion of the United Kingdom. In the first place they could certainly claim to have the longest nnbroken history of any portion of the United Kingdom. As a people their history went ba.ck to graatest autiquity, and they had a record unbroken for upwards of thirty centuries. Then as to race un- doubtedly in many parts of the southern portion of the Principality they had had a-lai-ge, immimra- tion from England, and from portions where the Celtic stock was very pro- minent. But whatever allowances might be made for immigration, what portion was so distinctly racial as this little country as to language. It was almost miraculous that the language of Cambria should be alive at all -io-day 'considering all the endeavours that had been made to strangle it. Yet it had lived, and a larger number spoke -it to-day than in any time in our history. Wales had been loyal, and stood by England in weakness as well as in strength. Even in her most glorious victory Agincourt—Sir David-Gam and his brave m tcquitted themselves in a manner to make Welshmen feel proud of such gallantry. Although the Welsh people had been persecuted they had maintained their distinctive nationality, and after some 700 years' trial to assimilate them they were as distinctive in race, language, habits,, and customs to-day I as '-when. -,tbe "reuglisbmm' Erst took them in hand. It could not be said the English had not had time to turn them into Saxons. They began their teaching 1,200 years ago, and were—fair play to them- perfectly unscrupulous as to the means they adopted but they had found that they had set themselves an impossible task. Were it possible to accomplish it, the English people would have been the people of all others to do it. Though England had used all her power in the endeavour to assimilate the Welsh people in manners, customs, and language, she had utterly failed either to absorb them or to assimilate them as a nation. Nationality was, humanly speaking, indestructible. No nation. which had not come under divine vengeance, had ever been annihilated. No people were more ready than the Welsh people to let bygones be bygones, and he was fully persuaded that just as their claims were granted, just in proportions would their English neighbours be also benefited. If for one moment he thought that by the course they were taking that day they were weakening the English as a nation, or in any way injuring the great empire of which they were so proud, much as he was desirous of aggrandizing his country, he would consider himself a criminal did he lift his little finger to further their design. On the contrary, he was fully persuaded that just as they advanced in the way of self-government, the English people would not be backward in following suit, and would very probably, as usual, improve upon their teachers. Proceeding, the speaker dealt with the provisions of the Bill, and emphasised the necessity for giving greater consideration to the Welsh language and Welsh sentiment. He admitted that the present Government had done much in the e way of recognition of these things. (Cheers.) But it was necessary to go further and more clearly recognise, as was done in this Bill, the rights of the Welsh people. His model in framing the Bill, so far as it related to the Welsh National Council, was the Senate of the United States. They must consider, no doubt, the question of proportionate representation. The populous county of Glamorgan, for instance, could scarcely- be expected to content itself with the same number of representa- tives as, say the county of Brecon. That Bill proposed to obtain a charter for a University for Wales. (Cheers.) There were friends like Mr Lewis Morris who were doing all they could with the present means at command to secure a charter, but he feared that, at the rate matters had progressed in the past, they would not get it for thirty years at least. (Hear, hear.) By this Bill, however, it was pro- posed to give the National Council power to apply for a charter without laying their case be- fore Parliament. (Applause.) As to the pro- posal to establish a national musemnJ they could not expect the Imperial Parliament to pay for it altogether, but it should be asked to contribute. (Applause.) In concluding the hen. member said Let me say that I view the proceedings of this day as a memorable epoch in the history of ouz country. We have begun a movement that will- not cease until our country has received that con- sideration and recognition commensurate with her position as one of the four nationalities that make up the United Kingdom. The spirit that manifests itself here to-day is only an example of that which exists all over the Principality, and the movement will go on from strength to strength until it becomes as irresistible as a mighty avalanche, crushing- down all opposition to its glorious consummation. Our own little country will again take her proper rank among the nations of this mighty empire, in whose creation she has played so distinguished apart. (Loud cheers.) Mr THEODORE DODD (barrister), London, the framer of the Bill, said the Bill was one for local government and agood deal more. It sought to have a Welsh Secretary, and so secure the aboli- tion, so far as Wales was concerned, of Air Henry Matthews—(laughter and cheers)-and Lord Halsbury. London needed Home Rule no less than Wales, and if Wales helped London, London would help Wales. (Cheers.) He explained the clauses of the Bill at great length. The Bill oame home practically to their every-day life. It would help the man who wanted an allotment, would help the town that wanted improvements, and would give the Secretary for Wales and the National Council the control of Crown lands now vested in the Commissioners of Woods and Forests. Probably no clause. in the Bill would be more bitterly opposed than that relating to Crown lands. Now the Crown lands in Wales were extensive. In fact, a large portion of the Principality appeared to be held under grants from the Crown. These grants were made not very many years ago, and it would be interesting to know why those grants were made. (Applause.) Were there any terms all which they were made, such, for instance, as defending the marshes of Wales This Bill enabled the NationaljjCouncil to make inquiries into this matter. Let them see whether there was not some reason why the Tory Press and Tory speakers violently opposed this proposed transfer. Mr LEWIS MORRIS, who was cordially re- ceived, thanked the previous speakers for their very lucid explanation of their Bill. He was surprised to find so inoay Welsh member s absent. Probably there might be a reason for their absence, but he did sincerely thiuk that was a matter of considerable import- ance to Wales, and it was certainly the duty of every member for Wales to have been present. (Loud applause.) He had no mandate to speak for any particular constituency, but there was such a thing as a general, mandate from the country. (Hear, hear.) He had listened to that Bill, and had been su.-prised at its extreme moderation and good sense. (A-PlJajise.) Nothing more moderate coufd have been imagined. He referred to the provisions of the Bill ar. to the Welsh University, and said he was inclined to ask whether they could afford to wait for the Welsh University charter even until they got the national council, or whether it would not be bettea even to take something on account. (Ap- plause.) He was anxious that application should be made to the present Government. They had not been bad to Wales. Let Wales try to get something more out of them. (Cheers.) 'No doubt the present Government would make terms for the only college in Wales which now had the power of giving degrees—the College of St. David's, Lampeter—that that should have some share in the srovernment of the university. (No.) He would say no himself, and a great many others would say no. Still he knew what the needs of the country were, and he knew also there was many a slip twixt the cup jond the lip. He remembered that there was a slip of five years in the case of the Intermediate Education Act, and how they waited session after session under a Liberal Government, how a bill was brought in-a kind of still-bom bill about two o'clock in the morning-and immediately sat upon and killed by Mr Biggar. It was not until after a Tory Government came into power they got the Intermediate Education Bill. (Hear, hear.) Rev Dr HEKBER EVANS (Carnarvon), in an 7eloquent speech in the vernacular, proposed That this meeting approves of the general principle of the National Institutions (Wales) Bill for appointing a Secretary of State, constituting a Welsh education department, creating a national council, providing for a Welsh University, and Museum,and for a better system of appointment of magistrates, and for ;the protection of the lands and rights of the people. (2) That the county and county borough councils be urged to petition in favour of the Bill. The rev. gentleman commented favourably oij the Bill. He felt inclined to excuse the absence of some Welsh members. They were only just starting on holiday after a weary session, and he was certain that no Welsh members had ever stuck to their posts: better. (Applause.) That was a most enthusiastic meeting. Let them take care the steam did not escape with the whistle. Mr LEWIS WILLIAMS, J.P., Chairman of the ;Cardiff School Board, seconded, and character- ised the -scheme put forward by Mr Alfred Thomas as being well within the realm of prac- tical politics. The great question of the hour in Wales, so far as education was concerned, ihow they were to utilise the gifts whic had been given them by Parliamen When they came to face the work they were hampered because they had many authorities to deal with. This was a, loss 01 f>ower. (Hear, hear.) He suggested that clause 10 of the Bill should be so amended as to mate IZ possible for members of the proposed »ducation Department to be appointed, not entirely by Privy Council, as suggested, but that a third only should be appointed by the Privy Council, .third by the County Councils of Wales. A hat would be a safeguard, and would ensure de representation of the people. If Mr Lewis Morris could get a Bill for a Welsh ljniversity passed before the National Institutions u° ,one would object to eliminate from this i5ili tne references to the university, but let it be a part or !the programme, and let it be known they were determined to have a body in their mIdst with power to confer degrees. Nothing would hep e 'Principality more than the cheapening of the means of obtaining private ASHis. (Applause.) The enormous cost of private legislation hindered the development 01 commerce and enterprise, and the commercial welfare of the districts. These powers must Oe brought within their reach. (Applause.) ile heartily congratulated Mr Theodore Dodd upon the admirable manner in which lie had dra-lied the Bill, which he hoped would inaugurate a still more prosperous period for the Principality, and felt thankful to Mr Alfred Thomas lor having had the courage to bring it forward. I Mr REES EDMUNDS supported the proposition. Mr J. HERBERT LEWIS, J.P., Mostyn, in sup- porting the resolution, spoke of the appointments of magistrates. Reference had been made to him as a Nonconformist, but he was not placed on the commission of the peace by the Lord-Lieutenant. He believed that gentleman would as soon place Satan there. I (Laughter.) It was to the people that he owed his position there. In the past qualifications for the magistracy seemed to have been that a man should be an alien to the country, an alien in language, in religion, and in sympathy- Now they had declared that they were not going to have it any 1 on ger. (Applause.) As to the proposed National Council they were told,that the Imperial Parlia- ment were staggering under an intolerable buis^ den of work. Then why should not the proposal contained in this bill be adopted ? Then he con- tended Wales had the right to a museum estab- lished in the Principality, and that at the cost of the Consolidated Fund, an amount equal to that received by Scotla.nd and Ireland. (Applause.) Scotland had towards its museums and National Gallery, £ 14,501 per annum. Ireland had a new museum com- pleted last year at a cost of about £ 200,000. annual grants to the new museum, library, School of Art, Botanical Gardens, &c., were no less than £ 26,556. Now, if Wales had its due pr°par^°" they ought to have a capital of some £ 60.00U or 970,000, and an annual grant from the Consoli- dated Fund of £ 8,000 per annum. (Applause- Mr F. J. BKAVAN (Cardiff) and Councillor LEWIS (Tonypandy) having spoken, the resolution ;was put to the meeting and carried with, It was subsequently stated, one dissentient. Mr GWILYM EVANS (Llanelly) proposed- That this Conference stand adjourned, and that the following gentlemen be appointed a. columitlee to arrange another meeting in London in the autumn for the further consideration of the National institutions ,a Bill and the best means for its promotion-, list of names /o!l;.we.i)-anii that Mr I). K. Williams, solicitor, Llanelly, and Mr W. Johnston, Carclitt, De appointed joint ,eci-etaries. Mr ISCOKD JONES, Llanrwst, suggested that North Wales should be more fully represented on the committee. (Applause.) „ The Rev TOWYX JONES, Brynamman, Car- marthenshire, ageeed, remarking that a number of the speakers were from Cardiff. (Hear, he".) They must remember that although Cardiff was large, Wales was larger. (Applause.) If they moved onward they must move as a nation. (Apolause.) Mr P. OSTYN WILLIAMS (Rhyl) emphasised the necessity for having a large representation of North Wales on the committee A GENTLEMAN who rose among the audience asked why the committee should meet in London. (Applause.) Mr GWILLYM EVANS then withdrew his motion. Mr ISCOED JONES thereupon proposed that the committee should consist of two from Mon- mouthshire, and six from North and six from, South Wales. Mr P. MOSTYN. proposed two from each Parliamentary constituency. Dr EDWARDS, Dolgelly, thought that would be an unwieldy committee. He proposed six from North Wales and nine from South Wales Ultimately, on the motion of the Rev Town JONKS, it was decided that the committee should consist of one representative from each Welsh constituency. Councillor MORGAN THOMAS, Ferndale said that if they. meant to carry the Bill and make an impression on the English Radicals, they must be united and trust the people He suggested that the two secretaries appointed to carry out the work of that Conference should send circulars to the Liberal associations of each constituency m H ales asking them to appoint representatives on the committee. (Hear hear.) Mr BERIAH GWYNVE EVANS, Cardiff, pointed out that all they were. now about to do was to appoint an acting committee (pro. tern.) to make necessary arrangements until the time when they could get; a proper representa- tion of all parts of Wales. He suggested that a sub-committee be appointed to recom- mend a number of names to be submitted to an adjourned meeting, to be held that evening, or on the morrow. Rev Dr HERBER EVANS (Carnarvon) said if they passed no resolution of the kind proposed the meeting would be abortive. Who should act on the committee now suggested was a very small matter. Mr Alfred Thomas haa convened that influential meeting, and could they not trust him to call the next ? The Rev SELBY JONES (Llangawe) failed to see that any committee was necessary. Thatmeeting had been called to show their approval of the Bill, which, after all, included only a few of the reforms which they demanded for Wales. Dr HERBER EVANS proposed that the matter be left in the hands of Mr Alfred Thomas. They might rely upon him to call from every part of Wales the men that would be most likely to assist him with the scheme. The Rev SELBY JONES seconded. Principal MICHAEL JONES, Bala, who spoke in response to a loud call from the audience, said that so far as he understood the Bill it was mainly for the purpose of getting a kind of self-govern- ment for \Vales and a Secretary of State. Well, he had gone far in advance of that years ago. The Irish had a Secretary of State, and yet they de- manded Home Rule. Why should Wales be con- tent with less? (Loud cheers.) Eventually, at the suggestion of the Chairman, the members of Parliament backing the Bill were entrusted with the duty of seeing that a committee was formed, consisting of one representative from each coa- sfcl,t?e"c7 Wales. MrW. O. BBIGSTOCKE. J-T- (chairman of the S Carmarthen County Council), moved a hearty vote of thanks to Mr Alfred Thomas for intro- ducing the Bill which bad been drawn on extremely moderate grounds. -One very good feature of it was that it did not in any way advocate the diminishing of the parliamentary representation of Wales No Bill advocating the diminishing of their position as members of the empire m Parliament could receive his support. Councillor ISGOED JONES, Lianrwst, seconded. They owed a deep debt of gratitude to Mr Thomas for coming to the rescue and preparing for them such a magnificent bill. He hoped other Welsh members of Parliament would assist him, and so secure for VV ale^ what they had been for years in want of. (Oheers.) Alderman EVANS, Carmarthen, supported Mr ALFRED THOMAS M.P- replying, said he was perfectly satisfied with the Conference, and proposed a vote of thanks to the Chairman, which was seconded by Councillor Thomas, Ferndale, and passed. Madame Clara Novello Davies, Card^. having sung the Welsh national anthem, "1 he Land of my Fathers," a most enthusiastic meeting ter- minated.
TERRIFIC STORM IN THE CHANNEL.! The special correspondent of the Central News, telegraphing shortly bsfore mid- night, ays: A terrific storm is now raging in the Solent, and communication between the British and French Fleets and the shore is 1 entirely suspended. A large number of French seamen who had spent the day on shore, were to night- unable to get to their vessels. 1 have been taken on board her Majesty's ship Duke of Wellington in the harbour. The 60 British ofhcers who went out to the banquet on the French flagship have not returned, and there is great apprehension on shore for their safety and for the shipping on the coast. In the harbour and dockyard look- outs have endeavoured to follow the signals from the line columns forming the com- bined squadrons anchored off the Spit, but, owing to the heavy rain and storms FOR The last four hours, no messagess have been made out. The greatest anxiety prevails on shore, and every precaution has been taken to obviate the possi. bility of casualty.
MASSACRE OF WHALING CREWS. Information has been received at Washington of the massacre of two ships' crews at the mouth of the MackenzieRiver, 500miles from the east point of Barrow Tliev haloneed to the whaling steamers Grampus and Hume. IN the close season of 1890 they went into winter quarters there in order to avail themselves of the two months early fishing in 1891 before the ice opened and permitted other vessels to enter. The two crews numbered 60. They were attacked and massacred by Esquimaux.

RAILWAY ACCIDENT AT LIVERPOOL A SOUTH WALES TRAIN IN COLLISION. 1 An alarming accident occurred on Tuesday after- noon at ifceLinie-street Station, Liverpool, belong- ing to the London and North-Western Railway Company- A South Wales passenger train was entering the station at considerable speed, when it ran into the rear of a. train of empty CARRIAGE which was being shunted to make room for it. The engine of the passenger train was seriously damaged, and the van and several carriages of the empty train smashed. Several passengers were severely shaken.
