KIDWELLY TOWN COUNCIL The monthly meeting of the To Council was held in the Town Hall on Friday, the 20th inst-, at 7 p.m. The Mayor (Councillor G. E. Bo wen) was in the chair, and there were present: Aldermen D. G. Anthony, W. Wilkins and Thoe. Reynolds; Ooun- oillors T. Davies, D. l'nillips, J. Morgan, and E. Cole; tbgether with Mr- W. R. James (town olerk), I the medical olhcer of hoaah (Dr. T. R. Griffithsl, the surveyor (Mr. John Morgan) and the inspector (Mr. John Davies). PROPERTY OOMMIT'li^. The report of the Property Committee contained areoommendation that .e following tenders for the repairs at Cyffredin Cottage be aooepted:- Building, Mr. Daniel Stephens, i>6 HS. 6d.; carpentry, Mr. B- Evans, L7 5s.-Adopted. The matter of building a new house at Llwynbelig was discussed at length. Alderman Wilkins said that Mr. Davies. the tenant, was of opinion that a suitable house could be erected for J3200, and he would put the outbuildings in a suitable state of repair. He would be prepared to pay £ 16 per annum. Alderman T. Reynolds thought the euggested arrangement a very reasonable one. It would be neoessary for the tenant to give an undertaking to keep the outhouses in good condition. Alderman D. G. Anthony was not in favour of the arrangement. The Council should do everything that was required, and charge 4 per cent. for the expenditure. It was not right to expect the tenant to go to any expense He believed a bigger rent than JB16 could be obtained. Mr. Davies, the tenant, was called into the Council chamber, and after an interchange of views, Alder man T. Reynolds moved and Councillor Cole seconded, that the Council erect the necessary build- ings at a cost not exoeeding -2250, and that 4 per cent. be charged the tenant on L.e outlay.—This was agreed to. The matter of putting the gutter and footpath in front of Tinmill-row in a state of repair was referred to the Council by the General Purposes Committee. The Surveyor reported that the owners would not do anything to the path or gutter. The Mayor said it was a matter for the owners of the houses and not the Council. Aluerman Wilkins differed. The Council was liable for the gutter, and he moved that the necessary work be done. Councillor Phillips seconded. The Surveyor estimated the coet of repairing the gutter as far as The Plough and making the path at J614. Alderman D. G. Anthony said it would be unfair to spend £ 14 for the benefit of a few ratepayers, and moved as an amendment that the matter be deferred for a month, the Surveyor in the mean- time to prepare a proper estimate of the cost. Councillor T. Davies seconded. They were threatening a man in Water-street with legal pro- ceedings, and why not treat everyone alike! Let them be straight on the question. Alderman Reynolds, Councillors Cole and Phillips were in favour of getting the work done. The Council divided the voting being: For the amendment, 2; for the motion, 5. I Councillor T. D. Davies—I shall now want you to make a road to my house (laughter). Alderman D. G. Anthony—He is quite right. He pays more rates than all these people. FIRE BRIGADE. Councillor Morgan pointed out that in 1909 a reso- lution was passed in favour of forming a volunteer fire brigade, and he moved that a committee be formed to carry out the resolution, and present a report to the next meeting. Alderman Wilkins seconded and it was carried. OLD IRON. An offer by Mr. Bevan, Bryn Chemical Works, to buy a quantity of 010 iron was, on the proposi- tion of the Mayor, referred to a committee, which would inspect the heap and decide what was sale- able. There might, be some. articles which might be of use to the Corportaion. Ald. Reynolds, with a knowing wink, drew the Mayor's attention to a member who was indulging j in a smoke. He objected to the practice (laughter). The Mayor (to the offending member)-As objec- tion has been taken to your smoking, I must ask you to discontinue (laughter). RECREATION GROUND. Ald. D. G. Anthony brought forward the matter of a recreation ground for the town. It had been brought to their notice several times previously by ex-Ald. D. G. Anthony, but nothing had been done. He took up the matter in the interests of the children, who, through the refusal without any good reason, of the County Council, tp allow the school playgrounds to be used, had nowhere bet the streets to play in. The ground he had in view was behind the Wesleyan Chapel. In course of timo it would be theirs, and in the meantime he thought they would be able to secure about two acres at an annual rent of JB6. Not only could it be used as a recreation ground, but the fairs could be held there thus relieving the streets of a nuisance. If any member could find a more economical or more centrally-situated piece of ground he would not press this one. He moved that the Clerk write to Mrs. Anthony, Penlan, as to terms. Coun. Cole seconded. He hoped the Council meant business, as otherwise it would be simply a waste of time. The children ought to have & play- ing ground. Ald. Reynolds quite agreed with the last remark, but a more unsuitable place than this spot it would be impossible to find. It was situated alongside the slaughter-house, which drained into it. The first consideration should be the suitability of the ground from a. health point of view; besides, it would cost an enormous Bum to put this one in a proper state of repair. As for fairs being held there, caravans could not pass through the narrow approaches. Ooun. Cole explained that in seconding, his idea was to get a recreation ground in the best spot-not neoessarily this one. Ald. Wilkins opposed on the grounds of health. A better place would be the field opposite the Boot and Shoe Inn, which would not cost much to put in order. Then there was a field near the Castle, which would be most suitable, especially if they could get the Castle as well. Conn. Davies favoured deferring consideration of the matter. If he found the town waa with them he would support any proposal for securing the most Buttahle ground. The Mayor said that the field near the Oastle known as the Cwniger was an ideal place for any- one to go to. He thought it would be well to defer the latter with the view of approaching Earl Caw- dor officially in regard to acquiring this field. Aid. D. G. Anthony—If Ald. Wilkins and Rey- nolds can find a better place, let them find it. It was agreed to ask the Clerk to write to Earl Cawdor. The report of the Medical Officer of Health was submitted, and was of a satisfactory nature. MISCELLANEA. A committee, composed of Ald. Reynolds, the Mayor, Couns. Cole, Phillips, and Morgan, was ap. pointédto deal with a petition from the inhabitants of Pwll praying for the extension of the water mains tb their district. A communication from Mr. John Francis, estate agent, Carmarthen, asking for the co-operation of the Council in the development of certain property situate near The Gardde, which it was intended to dispose of as building plots, was referred to the Property Committee. An application from the Corporation haulier for an advance of 4s. per week in wages was also re- ferred to the Committee. It was decided that the roadman complete the curbing and channelling of the sttreets, and that he be paid on the same basis as last year's. It was resolved to apply for a Nursing Class under the regulations of the County Council. In response to an appeal from the B.P. and G.V.R. Co., it was agreed to give them an addi- tional 21 days grace wherein to carry out the re- pairs, as the delay had been caused owing to che heavy additional work incurred in connection wtih the conversion of the railway into a passenger line. It was decided that a representative of Messrs. Willey and Co. bo invited to meet the Council at a special meeting to be held on the 30t'n inst at 6 p.m., when the question of the future lighting of the town will be thrashed out. The plan of a gardener's dwelling-house in the grounds of Rumsey House was passed subject to the approval of the Medical Officer of Health and the Surveyor. A very long meeting then terminated.

Jenkins, Dr. Price, Messrs. G. B. Thomas, J. V. Colby, J. Sephens, D. Martin Jones, D. Roberts, Jonah Evans, H. W. Howell (clerk), and Evan Gri- ffiths (head water bailiff). HEAD BAILIFFS REPORT. The Head Bailiff reported that there was a gentral improvement in the salmon fishing. This year 14 draft met licences had been taken out and 29 coracle net licenses. On Friday, the 6th inst,, a shoal of 68 salmon was hauled in one draw in the Castle Pool in St. Dogmell's; and early in the following week at the mouth of the river one boat had 84 fish in one haul. The Bay was well fetooked with salmon, and the prospects were very favourable. The coracle men had had a good season from the beginning of March to the end of May, especially the Cenarth men. The salmon were in good oondition, and some of them were of extra- ordinary weight. The number of salmon caught with rod and line was 157. The heaviest weighed 311bs., and was grassed by Col. Edwards on Waun. ifor waters. Another, weighing 281ba, was grassed by Col. Symmonds on Porth waters. Capt. Lewes tandeid a nice 25i pounder out of his own waters. The trout season had also been very good. The heaviest trout weighed SIbs. and was caught by Mpt. Lewes. FISH PASSES. A sub-committee had submitted a recommendation that is future all plans of fish-passes should be submitted to this Board before being qertified by t'no Board "of Agriculture and Fisheries. Mr, Charles Lloyd suggested thati this Board should write to the Board of Agriculture asking that body if they would be good enough when sending down an inspector to notify the Board of Conservators so that representatives might meet their inspector. Mr. J. Stephens Raid that they as Board had but very little eay in the matter. Mr. Chas. Lloyd said the Board of Agriculture .L asked them to report from time to time how new fish passes were getting on, and if the Board wanted their assistance they must help the Con- servators likewise. Mr, J. Stephens fully agreed with this, and 6eooti* ded Mr. Chas. Lloyd's suggestion, which was put intb a proposition. Mr. Chas. Lloyd then moved a rider to this pro- position that when the inspector came down the Executive Committee should meet him.—This was carried. The Surveyor of Taxes claimed 3s. 2d. JnOoxne Tax from the Board. After a short discussion, the Clerk was asked to see the Surveyor on the matter with a view to getting the Board free of this tax, as they were not liable.
According to one of tho London dailies, Queen Alexandra passed the procession of Churchmen demonstrating against the Welsh Disestablishment Bill on Saturday near Knightsbridge Barracks, "and watched with manifest interest." —— 'f

THE LATE SIR JAMES DRUMMOND PUBLIC REFERENCES. LLANGADOCK PETTY SESSIONS. At Llangadock Petty Sessions on Thursday last, the Chairman (Mr. D. Jones Lewis, Llwyncelyn) said that before proceeding with the business of the court it fell to his lot to perform a very sad duty. Since the last sitting the death had occurred of Sir James Williams-Drummond, lord-lieutenant of the county. Sir James was one of the kindest and most courteous gentlemen in the county, and was a de- scendant of one of the oldest families in Wales—the Williamses of Rhydodyn. By his death the county sustained a severe loss. The Chairman then went on to refer to the deceased baronet's ability as lord lieutenant, 6aying the gap that had been caused by his death would be very difficult to fill. He wa a pious man. and a good landlord, and he (the Chair- man) was sure that his tenants would feel his loss very much. Although he had not been appointed a magistrate by the late Sir James, he had noticed his fairness in the selection of justices from both par. ties, and the painstaking and conscientious way in which he fulfilled the task. Proceeding, Mr. Jones- Lewis said that he was appointed a J.P. forty-three years ago by the then Lord Cawdor. The late Sir James Drummond took an active part in founding: the Alltymynydd Sanatorium. He moved a hearty vote of condolence with the family, and that the same be recorded on the minutes of the court. Mr. E. P. Lloyd seconded, endorsing what had been said by the chairman. Mr. T. Goo. Williams, solicitor, Llandilo; Deputy- chief Constable Evans, the clerk (Mr. Edmond Long Price), and Mr. H. Long Price (superintendent of water bailiffs) associated themselves with the vote. LLANDOVERY PETTY SESSIONS. At Llandovery Petty Sessions on Friday the chair- man (Mr. D. Jones Lewis) at the outset moved in feeling terms a vote of sympathy with the family of the late Sir James Drummond, Bart., lord lieutenant, and dwelt on the loss the county had sustained by his death. Alderman Lewis seconded. The magis- trates, clerk (Mr. Thomas Phillips), D.C.C. Evans, and Mr. Morgan Griffiths, solicitor. Carmarthen, associated themselves with the vote. LLANDILO BOARD OF GUARDIANS. At the Llandilo Board of Guardians on Saturday last the chairman (the Rev. «. Aiban Davies! said that as chairman of that Board, and as one who knew him as well if not better than any member he asked them to join with him in passing a vote of condolence with the family of the late Sir James Drummond. He was well known to them all. He did not think there was a better known gentleman in the county of Carmarthen. To know him was to love him. He was a most generous landlord, and one who rejoiced with uis tenants when they did well and sympathised with them in a practical way whea they did badly. Not only was he a gentleman from the sole of his boot to the crown of his head, but he was a thorough Christian-u. devoutly religious man, who would never miss his place in church if he could help it. He set a noble example to everyone T. in the neighbourhood. He never forgot or neglected family prayers at his home. They could only hope that the Great Architect of the Universe would give some portion of his wisdom and knowledge, kindness and generosity to his son. I Several members seconded the vote simultaneously. Mr. John Lewis, the vice-chairman, said he wished to associate himself with tne remarks made by the chairman and to endorse what he said. Mr. Henry Herbert supported. He had the plea- sure of knowing Sir James as intimately as anyone in a different station of life could. He was not only loved by the tenants, but. throughout the county. His loss would be keenly felt, especially in that particular neighbourhood. The vote was carried in the customary way, the members standing. CARMARTHENSHIRE INSURANCE COMMITTEE. At a meeting of the Carmarthenshire Insurance Committee on Friday last, the Chairman (Mr. Ben. Evans) moved a vote of condolence with the rela- tives of the late Sir James Drummond and of the late Col. Morris.—Mr. David Evans, Manordaf, seconded tihe proposition, which was carried unani- mously. LLANDILO URBAN COUNCIL. At a special meeting of the Llandilo Urban Coun- cil, the Chairman said that he thought it was their duty to give expression to their feelings with refer- ence to the late isir James Drummond. The de- ceased baronet had held the highest post-ion in the county, and always kept in touch with the people. He was in practical sympathy with any movement calculated to uplift the weak, and alleviate the woes of the poor, and especially those in the grip of the dire disease of consumption. He had endeared himself to all classes of the community. His death meant a serious loss to the county. He asked them to adopt a resolution to the effect that they as mem- bers of the Council on behalf of the ratepayers desired to place on record their deep sympathy with the heir in the loss he had sustained by the death of his father, and the irreparable loss the whole county had suffered and the Welsh nation. He moved that the resolution be recorded on the minutes, and that a copy be forwarded to the new baronet. Mr. D. Pritchard Davies seconded. He said be had known the deceased baronet all his life, and -knew his excellent qualities. The motion was put to the meoting, and carried :n .the usual way, all the members standing the while. CARMARTHEN COUNTY PETTY SESSIONS. Sympathetic references were made at the Car- marthen County Colice Court on Saturday last to the ueath of Sir James Drummond, Bart., C.B., lord lieutenant of the county. In moving a vote of condolence with the family, the presiding magistrate (Mr. D. L. Jones, Derlwyn) paid an eloquent tribute to the deceased gentleman, and pointed out that by his death a gap had been made in the public life of the county which would be very hard to fill. Major Dowdeswell, J.P., Llanstephan, seconded, and the magistrates' clerk (Mr. Hubert Morgan Griffithgi associated himself with the vote, which was carried in silence, all present standing. KIDWELLY TOWN COUNCIL. At the monthly meeting of the Kidwelly Town .Council on Friday last, before proceeding with the business, the Mayor (Councillor G. E. Bowen) re- ferred in very fitting terms to the great loss the county had sustained through the lamented death of Sir James Drummond, Lord Lieutenant of Car- marthenshire, who had been a conspicuous figure ir the county for many years. A member of one of the oldest families in the county, Sir James had been a public benefactor, notably 80 in connection with the West Wales Sanatorium which was estab- lished mainly through the efforts of the late Lady Drummond and himself ,and which had proved a blessing to those whose misfortune it was to suffer from consumption. The Mayor then moved a vote of sincere condolence with the family of the late Lord Lieutenant. Ald. D. G. Anthony seconded, and the 'vote was carried in silence, all the members upstanding. The Clerk was directed to convey the terms of the resolution to the new baronet. r- Last week the name of the Rev. J. D. Evans, Whitechureti Rectory, Crymmych (formerly Lurate of Llansawel), was inadvertently omitted from the list of those present at the funeral. In the list of floral tribute for "Mrs. Harford" read "Mr. and in place of "Angel Marine Artillery" it should have been "Royal."

Priff- its of Ferndale, the Carmarthen Boroughs Conser- vative Association will to-morrow conclude a week's campaign of similar meetings by Mr. Geo. L. Paton, of the National Union Association. Two of these were held aft Carmarthen on Monday night,, a large gathering being addressed in Guildhall Square over which Mr. W. G. Woolley, the Unionist Agent for the Boroughs, presided, supported by ME. F. C. Humphreys, Unionist Secretary for Carmar- then. Mr. Paton, who was given a splendid hear- ing, said that the urgent and dominant need of the moment was a real" -back to the land policy." This he proved by the alarming statistics of emigration, which revealed the "flight" of the Scottish, Eng- lish, and Welsh agriculturist, while emigration from Ireland, as the Census of 1901 and 1911 proved had "come to an end," so far as the Irish tenant farmer and agricultural labourer was concerned. Ireland to-day had the best system of land tenure in the world. Mr. Birrell had said "Let us give credit where credit was due." Ireland had the Unionist Party and the late Mr. Goo. Wyndham to thank for the settlement of the Irish Land Question. In Mr. Birrell's own words, he "considered the Irish Land Purchase Acts more important than Irish Home Rule for the peace and prosperity of Ireland." Thus, no land bill was "tacked on" to the No. 3 Home Rule Bill, and thus the Liberal party acknowledged the triumph of Unionist land policy in Ireland I a living epistle and living witness of Unionist wisdom in land reform! Mr. Paton then explained in lucid manner the evolution of land reform in Ireland. How "absentee" landlordism was abolished, how "fair rents" supplanted "rack." and "competitive" rents, how the sons of the soil (286,000 in number) were settled on the soil, as free- holders. How the mud-cabin had disappeared, con- gested districts abolished, the Irish agricultural labourer housed in a sanitary dwelling of four roomed, bricked and slated cottages, at from Is. 5d to lis. 9d. per week rental. How the whole I condition of Irish agriculture never was so rosy, and how, as a direct result, the Irish farmer had I ceased to subscribe to the National League fund&f He reviewed and critised the Radical Land Policy! Small Holdings under dual control, and perpetual rent payment, and mere tenancy, has proved an utter failure on Radical lines. As a back to the land policy, it had neither checked their alarming emigration and immigration from the rural dis- tricts, nor in any way induced those who had re- mained, to put their capital or the best of their labour into the land. The long delayed Lloyd Georgian attack upon land, and landlords, was now doubtless abandoned, because of the danger of an I inhabitant of a glass house casting stones. To shift all taxation off buildings on to land, and we have all ( revenue raised by a single tax on land, that was the policy of the Radical advance guards. It has ( proved the "last straw argument." Any additional I burden on land every agriculturalist knew would ¡ absolutely kill British agriculture! Mr. PatOOl exposed the destructive results of the land tax pro- posals of the Radical Budget of 1909-10, the house hunger, advance in rental, depression in the build ing trade, and the utter failure of all its financial, a"; well as its economic results- Mr, Paton then pro- ceeded in rapid review with a denouncement- of 3IG coalition Radical, Irish Seneratiat, Laboor, Socialist Government's destructive policy! This "bull in the china shop" Government have, be said destroyed everything t.h('' have touched. They had destroyed the Unity of I m-Hament. and as far as ikley can, the Unity of the United Kingdom and Empire, and the Unity of ttie -urch. Their class- war propaganda had destroyed Industrial Unity, and set up enmity and discord between labour and capital They still contended they were the Govern- ment of all the virtues, but did not deny that our human exports were never so great, food never so dear, rent and rates never so high, and wages never so stagnant as we now find them after six years of Radical Rule- Mr. Paton concluded with an appeal to end Radical policy of destruction, and put in office a party and a government pledged to con- structive legislation. Questions were then invited, many asked and satisfactorily answered, including many dealing with tjte Welsh Cnurch Bill. At the conclusion Mr. Paton was accorded rounds of applause, and a similar compliment was paid to the Chairman. MEETING AT JOHNSTOWN. On Tuesday night, the first Unionist meeting ever held at Johnstown, Within living memory at all events, took place outside the blacksmith shop in the open-air, and it was tery largely attended. Mr. H. J. Stokes, agent for the West Carmarthenshire Unionist Association, presided, being supported by Mr. F. G. Humphreys, the secretary of the local Unionist and Conservative Association, who bad oonvenod both meetings. Mr. Paton began his address by a review of the present position of the political parties in the House of Commons, and showed how tue byo-elections clearly indicated that the great change that bad come over political opinion in the country was grossly misrepresented in the present House of Commons. The Government knew that the country was not with them. The three suspended Bills, which by the Parliament Act of 1911 were now hung* up for two years and three sessions revealed the unwillingness of the Radical Government to oonsult the people whom they professed to trust. To-day, the Second Chamber was more true to democratic principles than the Government, for, while the Radical majority in the House of Commons had decided to do any- thing but consult the country, the Unionist majority in the House of Lords had said, Before these three revolutionary Bills become law, they ought to be submitted to the voice and verdict of the people." Mr. Paton criticised the three suspended Bills. (1) The Irish Home Rule Bill as separation; (2) the Welsh Church Bill as robbery; and (3) the Scot- tish Temperance Bill as foolishness. Since these measures saw the light the Government had lost seats and votes at every bye-election. The speaker reviewed the agricultural policy of the Government- their neglect of the farmer and farm labourer, their stupid land tarc proposal to heap up burdens on land already overburdened, and the gross injustice done by the Insurance Act to tne agricultural class. He made out a strong case against the Radical land policy. » A number of questions were asked and answered, especially a series with regard to small ownership of land, and the market being governed by the law of supply and oemand. Tno Chairman having thanked the audience for their kind and fair hear- ing of the speaker, the successful meeting ended amidst applause for speaker and chairman.
