DEATH OF MR. W. J. EYRE. Much sympathy is felt with the family at Meadow House, in the loss they have sus- tained by the death of Mr. Wm. John Eyre, at the age of 74 years. The deceased about three weeks ago had a cold and de- veloped pneumonia, and suffering a relapse passed away early on Monday morning. He leaves two sons and three daughters. His wife died some years ago. A native of Tipperary. he went to Liverpool when a young man, and entering the commercial life he became prominently interested in the rubber trade, and in that and the African trade he was well-known to commercial men, his connection being of some 50 years' duration. He was a Conservative and a member of the Church of England. The funeral took place to-day at Anfield Park Cemetery, Liverpool.
MILITARY FUNERAL. A very impressive military funeral was accorded Private Thomas Ross, son of the late Mr. Alec Ross, and of Mrs. Ross, Paper Mill Cottages, on Tuesday afternoon. lr. Ross, who was 21 years of age, died on Fri- day last. He was employed at the Abbey Paper Mills, and was popular with every- one, being a promising and genial youth. He was a member of D (Holywell) Coy. 5th Batt. R.W. Fus. The Rev. D. J. Evans took the service at Alpha English Congre- gational Church and Miss Nellie Davies played the Dead March at the close of the service. The bearers and firing party of D Coy. escorted the remains to Holywell. In Whitford street the cortege was met by the Territorials and the Welsh Flannel Mills Band, which, under Mr. Chas. Jones, played the Dead March in Saul. The Rev. D. J. Evans and Mr. J. Petrie (manager of the Abbey Mills) headed the procession, and were followed by the firing party with arms reversed, the band playing the Dead March the Bugle Band, with draped drums (Drum-Major Jos. Williams leading); the hearse conveying the coffin on which was the Union Jack as the pall, with the de- ceased's cap and accoutrements; the rela- tives of the deceased in the mourning car- riages; the members of D Coy. with Capt. J. Ll. Williams (in command), Capt. Dr. Hook (chaplain), Lieuts. Elford H. Roberts, Maldvvyn Davies and J. R. Owen, Quarter- Master Schwarz and Sergt.-Major Baker, who also acted as marshal. There was a large number of Territorials present. The members of the local tent of the Order of Rechabites mustered in good force, and each wore a black and white sash. Follow- ing were a large number of ladies, and the gentlemen brought up the rear. The streets were crowded. The interment was at Zion Chapl, and after the services by the Rev. D. J. Evans and that by the officers of the Rechabites, the customary three vol- leys were fired and the "Last Post" was sounded by the buglers.

The Budget Muddle. The Government have thrown the coun- try's finances into a pretty niuudle by their Budget, the policy of which, as the result of certain changes announced on Monday, has been shipwrecked, as Mr. Walter Long expressed it. The Speaker ruled that the Finance Bill went beyond the scope of the money resolu- tion on which it was founded, but made a suggestion that the irregularity could be rectified by a resolution in Committee of Ways and Means. On behalf of the Government, Mr. Herbert Samuel explain- ed their intention to take out of the Bill the clauses giving subventions to local authorities, to abandon the temporary grants proposed for this year, and take off again half the additional income tax. The last-named point was a great victory for the dissentient Liberals, who had formed a I "cave"; and the case with which they secured their object was a great shock to the Labour men. Great disappointment has been expressed in the country at the failure of the temporary grants, particular- ly by those local authorities who had pro- visionally counted them in their estimates. Promises are easily made; the perform- ance of them is quite another matter. Mr. Lloyd George pledged himself years ago to 0 t, grant these concessions to the ratepayers; but the hopes of local authorities have been rudely shattered. Of course, as Mr. T. McKinnon Wood explained in the House on Tuesday, "the Government are not bound to adhere to every decision they come to, and not to vary any proposal they make" An elastic principle, which fits the Govern- ment's case very well!
Food Prices under a Tariff. The "Daily Express" of Friday says:— "The high cost of living in Germany, and the inferior food, have been insisted upon so consistently by Liberal newspapers, especially at election times, that the 'Ex- press' is glad to quote from the 'Westmins- ter Gazette' (June 16th) the following con- tradiction. It must be remembered that Germany is a rigidly Protectionist coun- try:- 'And although the cost of living in 0 Germany has increased of late years, it is still substantially less than in England, and the hotels have the reputation of be- ing nearly the equal of the Swiss. 'The traveller must not, therefore, con- fuse the prices of the first-class estab- lishments in Germany with those in Eng- land, because the cost in many cases is considerably less than we would pay in a secoucT-elasiS hotel over here. Nor need it be supposed that because the room is cheap the manage- ment recoups itself on the price of the meals. The table d'hote fare may be rather above our means, but it is general- ly possible to take one's meals in the restaurant which is attached to nearly every first-class hotel in Germany. There is nothing to fear, then, in the cost of liv- ing in first-class hotels in Germany by people accustomed to put up at second- class establishments in this country. And as nearly everything else is corres- pondingly cheaper, Germany offers every inducement to the touring motorist.' The omissions from the quotation above in no way diminish the force of the pro- nouncement of the Radical organ that pro- tected Germany is a considerably cheaper country to live in than 'Free Trade' Eng- land."
BUCKLEY, ANNIVERSARY. In connection with the Brunswick Wes- leyan Sunday School anniversary, the ser- vices were continued on Sunday last, when sermons were preached to good congrega- tions by Mr. Whitelow, of Liverpool. A service, presided over by Dr. O. E. Wil- liams, was held in the afternoon, when an- thems, solos, duets, and recitations were very well rendered. Mr. Wm. Roberts was the accompanist.
Men & Matters. IT is rarely that one sees so large an at- tendance at a Local Government Board in- quiry as was the case at Connah's Quay last Thursday and Friday. The attendance each evening at the inquiry into the hous- ing conditions of the Quay shows that this question—which naturally affects a large number of the inhabitants—has given rise to keen interest; and another point Worth noting is that the audiences were composed largely of workingmen. — :o: — AS will be seen from the extended report of the inquiry which appears on another page, the complainants contended that the overcrowding had assumed such proportions as to constitute a grave menace to public health and morality. They alleged that the Urban Council had defied the wishes of the public by taking no steps in the matter. -:0:- IN their defence the Urban Council, while admitting that overcrowding exists, submit- ted that it is not of so serious a character as was represented. They urged that pri- vate enterprise had done much to alleviate the problem. Pointing to the fact that Messrs. Summers' works—the principal in- dustry of the district—are situated outside their area, and that they therefore do not draw any rates from them, they contended that if any authority ought to be called upon to erect houses, it should be the Ilawarden Rural Council, in whose district the works are situated. — :0 — OF course, the problem has arisen through the rapid development of the dis trict. Twenty years ago Connah's Quay was a quiet village, its chief industries be- ing shipping and fishing since then it has 0 gone ahead wonderfully, and 'is now a I thriving industrial community. -:0: SAYS "The Liverpool Daily Post and Mercury":—"Welsh has been heard in the Belgian Senate House, which corresponds to our House of Lords. Colonel Pryee Jones and M". T. Parry were members of the International Parliamentary Commer- cial Congress held at Brussels. As every European language appeared to be used in the speeches, Mr. Parry thought he would give the delegates some Welsh, and he did. He delivered an address in his native tongue." -:0:- IN the report of the Council of the Natio- nal Library of Wales, reference is made to the Flintshire Historical Collection presen- ted to the Library by Mr. Henry Taylor, F.S.A., of Chester. A short account of the collection appeared in a former report of the Council. Since then the donor has sent further valuable additions to the collection. "The collection, representing as it does part of the life long activities of a careful his- torian and eminent antiquarian, forms," savs the report, "an admirable nucleus of a collection of materials for a county history of Flintshire. The entire collection, as now constituted, comprises seven large boxes of manuscripts, documents, and pamphlets, to- gether with several printed volumes-all dealing with Flintshire matters. There is also a valuable set of casts of the Seals of Chester and North ales. -:0:- THE general character and importance of the collection is then indicated in a sche- dule of contents. Amongst the documents there are seven ancient deeds relating to the conveyance of land, etc., in the Borough of Flint during the 13th and 14th centuries, five indentures effecting the transfer of property, and three documents touching certain premises in Middle street in the town of Flint (1652-4). These incidentally include the signature of Thomas Salusbury, of Leadbrook, and the seal signature of Sir Roger Mostyn. OPENJ.
Our Readers' Views. England's Debasement. (To the Editor of "The Flintshire Observer and News.") Sir,—The report of the debate in the Japanese Diet on their naval scandals is instructive, as it shows us, alas! too plain- ly, to what level our prestige has sunk under this Radical Government. It appears that our ally has had scandals in her ministry. During the debate one of the opposition speakers warned the House that the present degraded position of the Chinese people was due to the corruption which prevailed among them, and recommended that the members of the Cabinet (or the Seiyukai) should be deported to China, where they would find a congenial atmosphere, or fail- ing that to England—an allusion to the 1!1 r, Marconi scandal in this country which was m -r greeted with "hilarious applause." This is the opinion formed of us—"the Mother of Nations"—by a yellow race And it is entirely due to Messrs. Lloyd George and Co. we have been brought to this depth of degradation. Need we wonder that this z Government is in its element in robbing a Church?—Yours truly, ONLOOKER.
«< CONNAH S QUAY. PRINCE OF WALES AND THE BOY SCOUTS. The Scoutmaster (Lieut E. Ll. Marriott), of the Connah's Quay Boy Scouts, sent the following telegram to the Prince of Wales on his birthday:—"The Connah's Quay, North Wales, Boy Scouts beg most respect- fully to offer to you, their Chief Scout, their heartfelt congratulations on your birthday." The following reply was re- ceived :—"I am directed by the Prince of Wales to express His Royal Highness's thanks for the telegram of congratulations and good wishes which His Royal Highness has received from the Connah's Quay Boy Scouts.—Equerry."
PICTURE PALACE. There was an excellent programme on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday includ- ing "Lieut. Rose and the Sealed Orders"- an exciting drama—"The hour and the man," and "The Speckled Baiid." I

Evan Jones) and the Rev. W. J. Hick in. Special prayers were offered for the Society and its members.
PROPOSED STOPPING UP OF A FOOTPATH. At a secial Police Court held on Monday, before Captain P. A. Lloyd and Mr. Peter Roberts, application was made by Mr. Da- vid Thomas, surveyor to the Mold Urban District Council, for a certificate for the stopping np of a portion of a footpath situate at the Lead Mills, Mold, and paral- lel with the river Alyn. Mr. Thomas gave evidence as to the necessary formalities having been carried out. The certificate was granted, and application for its enrol- ment will be made at the Quarter Sessions in October.
POST-OFFICE STAFF OUTING. A most enjoyable affair was the annual outing of the outdoor staff of the Mold Post-Office, which took place on Sunday last, upwards of 30 postmen and their friends journeying to Rhyl in a charabanc. The weather was not all that could be de- sired when tlie start was made at 10 o'clock, but later turned out more favourable. The visitors had a capital dinner at the Imperial Hotel. The various attractions of Rhyl were keenly enjoyed. The arrangements, which were most satisfactory, were made by Mr. Joe Davies, branch secretary of the Postmen's Federation.

LOCAL FARMERS UNSUCCESSFUL ACTION. At the Rhyl County Court, on Friday, John Pritehard, farmer, Berthen, near Holywell, sued Sir Clement Royds, Llan- erch Park, near Trcinant, for the sum of £ 70, for personal damages sustained by himself by reason of defendant's servant, on November 11, 1913,, having, it was alleged, negligently and unskilfully driven a motor- car on the road from Bodfari to Denbigh, near Bodfari railway bridge. Mr. T. Arte- mus Jones (instructed by Messrs. A. O. Evans and Co., Denbigh) appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. T. G. it. Dehn (instructed by Messrs. Chas. Dunderdale and Co., Manchester) appeared for the defence. Plaintiff said that he was returning from Denbigh fair on November 11, riding a friend's horse and leading his own horse by a halter. At the sudden appearance of de- fendant's huge motor ear at a pace wliieii was alleged to amount to gross negligence on the part of the chauffeur, the horse which plaintiff was riding began to get res- tive. Plaintiff put up his hand, calling up- on the car to stop, but it went right past, the car touching the hoofs of the horse, with the result that it at once reared up and fell, throwing plaintiff, who did not remem- ber anything further until he found himself in Denbigh Infirmary. His eyesight had been affected. In cross-examination plain- tiff admitted that he was riding without a saddle at the time of the accident, and that he had since done ploughing and turnip pulling, and taken a pair of horses to Den- bigh fair. The case for the defence was that the horses in the charge of plaintiff be- gan plunging when the car was thirty or more yards away from them, and that plain- tiff was thrown to the ground before the car got within ten yards of the horses. After a hearing lasting for several hours the jury unanimously found a verdict for the defendant, and the Judge said he quite agreed with their finding.
FUNERAL OF A TOWNSMAN. With every mark of respect shown by the townspeople, the last sad honours were on Thursday afternoon paid the late Mr Edwin Davies, London House, whose lamented death at the age of 55, we recorded in our last issue. The service at the house was taken by the Rev. Dr. Meurig Jones. The ministers, including tlie Revs. A. Lloyd Hughes, D. Meurig Jones, Parry Brooks, D. Darley Davies, Hugh Evans (Wesley- ans); J. E. Davies, Hugr: Roberts (C.M.) W. Evans (Baptist), etc., headed the pro- cession. The remains were enclosed in a polished panelled oak coffin with brass fit- tings and plate engraved—Edwin Davies. Died June 15, 1914, aged 53 years. On the coffin were three wreaths and the hearse was practically covered with wreaths. In th carriages following were the relatives :— Mr John Davies (son); Mr Robt. Davies (brother); Mrs J. Williams, Mrs S. Davies and Mrs Higham (sisters); Mr T. L. Jones, (brother-in-law), Mr Charles Jones (brother in-law), Miss H. J. Jones (sister-in-law), Mr R.

Philip Jones, J.P., J. Carman, J.P., J. Marsdcn, J. Price, Edw. Jones (Waen), J. Ayer, J. E. Jones, W. Lock, T. Waterhouse, A. Earl, A. Lloyd, J. D. Williams, T. E. Williams, Tlics.

Jones (painters), etc. The mem falser- vice was held in Pendrcf Wesley; Chapel, and as the coffin was being carried in, Miss Nellie Jones played a funeral march. The hymn "Tynnu tua,'r byd tragwyddol" was sung, and the special psalm was read by the Rev. Hugh Evans, Mold, wfio also offered prayer. The Rev. D. Meurig 'Jones read a number of apologies and letters of sym- pathy. The Rev. A. Lloyd Hughes, in re- ferences to the deceased, said lie read on all faces a look of deep regret—Tuat a use- ful life had been unexpectedly cut down. They had hoped during the past few weeks that ho would recover from his illness, but the family, the church, and the town were plunged suddenly into a very deep and real sorrow. They were disappointed that they had lost such a useful life. Mr. Davies was a man of action-a man of few words. He was a splendid worker. He devoted his time to his business and to his cÏiureh. His world was not a very wide one, but he filled it thoroughly and well. He was an energe tic, systematic and successful worker, i the ciiiii-c-li as well as in his business. It was a great grief and loss to the family and to the church at Pendref. Mr. Davies was one of the oldest members. He was aWes- leyan by conviction and by choice. For 28 years he had been a Sunday-school teach- er, most punctual, and regular in his at- tendance. Nearly 40 years he had been a member of the choir, and held offices in the church, faithfully discharging the duties that devolved upon him. He was a man of peace and ever sought to carry out work amicably and with good feeling. He was also a generous man. They tfianked God for the example of such a man.—Other remarks were made, and after the singing of "0 God, our ltelp," the Rev. D. D. Da- vies, Denbigh, prayed and as the mourners left the chapel Miss Jones played the "Dead March" in Saul. From Pendref the cortege proceeded to St. Peter's Cemetery, Victoria road, where the committal service

THE LATE MR. EDWARD JONES. On Thursday last, at Norwood Cemetery,. London, the interment took place of Mr. Edward Jones, brother of Mr. Edwin Jones, London, and of Mr. Jos. Jones, J.P., Frondeg, whose death at the age of ö3 years, on the 13th inst., we recorded in. our last issue. Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Joncs and Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Jones were among, those who attended the obsequies. There were also representatives from Messrs. J. and R. Morley. with whom the deceased had been connected for 45 years, also represen- tatives from the Bon Marche. An excep- tionally large number of wreaths were re- ceived.
THE RABBIT SHOOT. The adjourned hearing of an action at Holywell County Court was taken before his Honour Judge Moss on Tuesday, in which Mr. Eccles, of the Feathers Inn, sought to recover from Charles Brace of Pwll Melyn Farm, 30s. in respect of the right to shoot rabbits. Mr. C. Jones was for plaintiff, and Mr. J. K. Roberts de- fended. Mr. Isaac Taylor, giving evidence, said he now found that raObits were not in- cluded in the shooting taken Trom Mr. Brace. In the first instance he thought it included rabbits.—It was stated that plain- tiff had been "pulling the keeper's leg" when he said he intended to shoot the phea- sants. The keeper took the remark ser- iously and reported to Mr. Taylor, who wrote to Mr Eceles with the result that lie went to Mr. Taylor and explained that he had only "pulled the keeper's leg."—His Honour said he thought both parties had been foolish about it and gave judgment for defendant—no costs.
