REGISTRATION OF VOTERS. There is probably no branch of political work so important and at the same time so persistently neglected as registration. Persons, being themselves so sublimely indifferent to what vitally concerns them are, as a conse- quence, extremely ill versed in the time and mode of registration. Registration time passes by unknown and unheeded, unless the registra- tion agents turn up on the scene and rouse them to a spasmodic sense of their duty to them- selves and to their party. To expect the work to be carried out with that minuteness and thoroughness so absolutely necessary for the success of the cause, through the unaided efforts of agents only, is nothing better than the imprudent half-conceived notions of a humdrum. Citizens of & great and advancing Empire like ours 11 ould feci, realise, and perform the duties th it devolve upon them as of right and justice. The arduous work of registration agents could be materially lessened, and rendered farjmore satisfactory by the establishment of active committees for each polling district in a constituency. With- out the aid of these committees it is im- possible. for agents to find out who should and who should not lie on the register throughout a large and scattered Parliamentary con- stituency. Conservative leaders in every polling district should rally round their agents during the preparation of the lists, and should support them at the registration courts. Then, and not until then, can we hope to see the work done satisfactorily and well. For the purpose of assisting those that are anxious to help themselves we give a short resume of registration procedure for both local Govern- ment and Parliamentary purposes which go together, though the incidents are not together, though the incidents are not precisely identical. The qualifications of electors may be divided into Personal, Occupation, Residence, and Rating. Personal. A person entitled to be registered as a county elector for local Government purposes may be a man or a woman, but must be of full age, not subject to any legal incapacity, and must zn not, within twelve months prior to July 15th in each year, have received any parochial re- lief—medical relief alone excepted. Occupation (1) Such person must, during twelve months prior to July 15th, have been in occupation, joint or several, of a house, warehouse, count- ing-house, shop, or other building or (2) Must during the same period have been an occupier, as owner or tenant, of some land or tenement in the parish, of the yearly value of not less than £10. Joint occupation under (1) will qualify, irrespective of the value of the house, warehouse, itc., and also under (2) if the value is sufficient, when divided, to give Y,10 for each occupier. The occupation of part of a house qualities where that part is separately occupied for the purpose of any trade, business or profession. Where a person succeeds to qualifying propel ty by descent or by marriage the occupancy and rating of the predecessor in title is equivalent to occupation by the successor. If a person lias occupied different property in the county in immediate succession during twelve months, he or she is entitled to be registered as a county elector in the parish in which the last occupied qualification is situated. Non- resident owners and lodgers are not entitled to vote in the election of County Councils, nor are persons who enjoy the service franchise for Parliamentary purposes. Residence. A county elector must have resided in the county, or within seven miles of its boundary, for twelve months prior to July 15th (or in the case of the £10 qualification, six months). The house may be let for not more than four months during the year with- out losing the vote. A person who occupies property in, but resides more than seven miles from the county, is not entitled to vote but a male occupier residing within 15 miles is qualified to be elected a county councillor. Rating. The elector, or some one else, must, during the twelve months immediately pre- ceding July loth in each year, have been rated in respect of the qualifying property to all poor rates made during those twelve months and all such rates (including county rates) as have become payable up to the preceding 5th January, must be paid on or before July 20th.
IMPORTANT DATES TO BE OBSERArED IN -REGISTRATION OF VOTERS. July 20th—Freehold and leasehold claims must be gi ven to the overseers on or before this date. July 25th—Lodgers must give notice of the renewal of their claim. August Ist -()verseei-s publish the listofoccupiers. Oth -Occupiers omitted from the overseers' lists must claim on or before this date. Lodgers not ready on the register must claim. AIlllotices of objection must be served.

Hughes, F.R.C.S., horough coroner, touching the circumstances attending the death of Mrs Elizabeth Toohig, St. Catherine-street. From the evidence adduced it appeared that on Saturday evening, the deceased, who is subject to apoplectic fits, was sleeping before the fire by herself, her two sons and daughter having gone to the Llanfynydd fair. She must have dropped on to the fender with her feet being under the grate when her clothes caught fire and were burned up to the knees. When found she was lifted on to a chair but died in 20 minutes after. She had a fit about three weeks ago, and it was nothing strange since that time to see her sleeping every afternoon in a recumbent position on the table. The Coroner having summed up the jury returned a verdict of "Died in a fit." Deceased was 74 years of age.
DEATH OF COLONEL LEWES J.P., D.L., OF LLYSNEW YDD. It is with feelings of deep and unfeigned regret, we have to chronicle the death of the above esteemed gentleman, which took place last Monday, at Llysnewydd, after a somewhat lengthy illne. Born November 5th 1813, the deceased was in his 77th year. Having completed his education he entered the service of his country and joined the 9lith regiment. He served in this regiment for nine years, being quartered for some time at Halifax, Nova Scotia. Subsequently he was appointed to the Carmarthenshire Militia, in which he served for some 28 years. He had the command of this Regiment for 17 years and finally he became its Honorary Colonel. Skilful discreet, generous, and uniformly affable the deceased gentleman won for himself the esteem and the confidence of his men during the whole of his successful commandership and when it came to an end it occasioned feelings of sincere regret th roughout the corps. His name and kindly associations lived green in their memories to the last. The late Colonel was a Justice of the Peace and Deputy Lieutenant for the counties of Cardigan, Carmarthen, and Pembroke. He was High Sheriff of Cardiganshire in 1857, and of Carmarthenshire in 185! He was also chairman of the Newcastle Emlyn, and Llaniihangel-ar-Arth Petty Sessional Divisions, and for some time chairmaM of the Teify Board of Conservators. He fulfilled his duties faithfully and regularly to the last. His straightfordward- ness honesty of purpose and singular trust- worthiness, his sound judgment and liberality of view secured him the confidence and the respect of all who came in contact with him in his judical and administrative capacity. As a land- lord he was always accessible, and lent a willing ear, a sympathising heart and a charitable hand to all appeals made to him. Nothing gave him greater pleasure than to see his numerous tenants in a happy and prosperous state and complete harmony always existed between them. He was the last of the old school of landowners on the banks of the Teify. As a neighbour and friend he was kind hearted, disinterested, and always ready to help the weak and oppressed in conjunctior. with his noble and amiable wife. He liberally subscribed to all movements having the amelioration of humanity as a guiding principle, and he helped forward every good object in his neighbourhood. He was an ardent sportsman and kept a pack of Harriers which showed excellent sport. He was a smart short and a skilful angler. The news of his death was received with profound regret throughout the neighbourhood. A more perfect gentleman, a kinder friend, and one who was more genuinely respected by all classes alike never lived. The funeral took place yesterday (Thursday) afternoon, when his mortal remains were assigned to their last resting place in the family vault in the parish churchyard of Llangeler. Large numbers of the late colonel's friends and acquaintances attended from both far and near, and it is needless to say the parishioners and neighbours of the deceased mustered in full force. Beautiful floral wreaths and crosses were sent by sympathising friends amongst which we saw those of Mrs Lewes and Captain Lewes, Llysnewydd Col. and Mrs Lewes, Tenby Col. and Mrs llowells, Pantgwyn Mrs Lewes, Linayron Mr and Mrs Pryse Rice, Llwyny- biain; Col. and Mrs Evans, Highmead Sir Marteine and Lady Lloyd, Bronwydd the children of Bronwydd illis-, Kate Summers Miss Ponsonby Mrs Billborough Misses Kell Misses Eillott, the Misses Lewis, Car- iii-trtlieii Mrs Dean Drake, London Mr, Mrs and Miss Brigstocke, Parkygorse and Mr Morgan Jones, Ileiilaii Rev.

C A 11 M A R T H E N S II111 E JOIN T STANDING COMMITTEE. The quarterly meeting of this committee was held at the Guildhall, Carmarthen, on Wednesday, when Lord Emlyn, presided. There were also present, Lieut-General Sir James Hills-Johnes, Dolaucothy Sir James W. Drummond. Edwinsford Col. Gwynne Hughes, Glancothy Messrs Charles Lloyd, Waunifor J. S. Tregoning, Iscoed J. L. Philippe, Bolahaul, A. H. Jones, Penrallt; A. U. Stokes, Ystrad- wrallt T. Morris, Coomb James Buckley, Bryncaerau; C. E. Morris, Mount .Pleasant; J. James, Llandovery E. Davies, Cenarth J. Davies, Treleach T. Phillips, and H. Wilkins. Llanelly Rev. Wm. Thomas, Whitland; Dr. Howell Rees, Tirbach Mr Thomas Jones, clerk of the peace and Mr William Phillips, chief constable. The committee was occupied for sometime with the finance, after which they received the chief constable report in respect to the police. It showed the number of persons apprehended during the last quarter to be 473 corresponding period, 4!)7 of this number 141 were proceeded against for drunkenness, 27 for vagrancy, 25 were charged with indictable offences, six of whom were committed for trial, ten summarily convicted, and nine discharged. The Chief Constable recommended the increase of the force by a sergeant and three constables, one to be stationed at Pontyberem, and the others at and near Llanelly. The matter not being on the agenda, its consideration was adjourned to next I I meeting. P.C. DANIELS AND THE PRTONS. Mr C. E. Morris asked whether the Chief Constable had anything to say with regard to the recommendation of the committee respecting P.C. Daniels, of Conwil, and the accusations brought against him by the Messrs Picton. The Chief Constable said he had considered the matter, and had done nothing. The recom- mendation was that it be left to him to do what he thought was best. With regard to the constable, if he had thought him guilty of obtaining money by false pretences, he would have arrested him him- self, and put him in custody if he had anything to prove it, but he had nothing. As to the constable taking proceedings, he could not recommend him to do so, for very good reasons, as he did not believe one syllable of the evidence of two of the witnesses it was against common sense. Mr C. E. Morris—Then he coidd come against them for conspiracy. The Chief Constable said he could not recom- mend the constable to incur the expenses of such an action, but it could be done if the committee guaranteed the expense. The Chairman said that the persons injured had their remedy in a couit of law, and they did not take it. Mr C. E. Morris remarked that it would be said throughout the country that the constable was being whitewashed. He had not the slightest feeling against the constable or the Pictons, but he believed that it was a case of grave suspicion, requiring proper investigation. The Chairman said they were getting irregular. Mr Morris could not raise a debate when no resolution was proposed. Mr Morris said he would bring the matter on at the next meeting. The report of the county surveyor as to the repairs required on the county lock-ups was adopted. JUSTICES' CLERKS' SALARIES. I It was decided at the next meeting to revise the salaries of the justices' clerk, according to the quinquennial period. RKV. WILLIAM THOMAS OX RACE MKKTINCS. The Rev. W. Thomas, Whitland, moved a resolution protesting "against throwing any of the expenses of police-constables at the races henceforth, either at Carmarthen or else- where, on the county." The rev. gentleman contended that the expenses incurred by police- constables at races should be paid by the committees or by a collection on the course during the races. (Laughter.) Tho majority uf Cannar- thenshire ratepayers were, undoubtedly, Noncon- formists in principle, practice, and spirit, and as such they were Puritans, and should not be called upon to pay even a share of the expense on the occasions alluded to. The Nonconformists were conscientiously against races of all sorts, especially hurdle races and steeplechases. (Laughter.) They objected to them on account of their demoralising effect in increasing drunk- enness, betting, gambling, and profane swear- ing by respectable people. Hurdle races and steeplechases were dangerous to the life and limb of both the riders and the horses, and the number of accidents made it impossible for them to approve of them, lie readily granted the gentry and other recreation, amusement, 1()Il, and facilities to make money and advertise their horses very cheaply. (Loud laughter.) He knew that owners got hundreds of pounds more by their horses after winning races, then when judged by a competent man. The rev. gentle- man went on to say that the Carmarthenshire Steeplechase Hunt Fund, when audited last May, showed the substantial balance of £ 225 ITs 10d., and thought there was no need to come to the committee as they did some time ago and ask for payment of 22s. Gd. towards police expenses in addition to the two guineas paid by the committee. The custom was condemned by public opinion, and should he discontinued unconditionally, and, said the speaker in conclusion, let us join together to close all the floodgates of immorality in the county so that all may be happy." (Laughter.) Mr J. Davies, Treleach, seconded the proposi- tion. The Chairman said he should vote against the motion. lie thought the present rule a safe and fair one, and that the committee should not make any distinction between the sort of meetings to which constables were sent at the expense of the county. The rule was that when any public gathering took place—whether race meeting, eisteddvod, or anything of that kind—the chief constable sent, at the expense of the county, as many policemen as he judged sufficient to keep the peace, and if the promoters of the event required more men, they were required to pay for them. After a brief discussion the vote was taken and at Mr Thomas's request, the names were recorded. Seven voted for and twelve against the motion. HEATING THE SHIRE-HALI. Having returned from lunch, the Comn.ittee opened the tenders for heating the Shire-hall, at Carmarthen, by means of hot water pipes accord- ing to the plan proposed by the surveyor (Mr D. Phillips), and ultimately accepted that of the Old Foundry Company, Priory-street, Carmarthen, at £ 113. Eleven tenders were received, four being from Carmarthen. The Committee then rose.
