BANGOR. is the only ward in I which a contest seems likely. The Liberals have selected Mr. T. Ki wards, painter, to replace I •Sir. Cameron, wno does not seek re-election. The choice is not acceptable to the Conservatives, who state tLat ii his candidatuie is persevered with they will run a jecoii't candidate wiiii Mr. John Williams. Mr. S. Evans, who formerly represented this warJ, is now in the field as an independent candidate. For the North Ward it was understood that no opposition would be offered by the Conservatives to there-election of Mr. J. Evan Roberts and .Major Savage that ill the East Ward the Liberals would consent to Mr. George James replacing Colonel Sackville West, and to }Ir. Evan Williams, contractor, succeeding Mr. W. A. Dew, who retires from the South Ward. However, the rejection of the compromise in the West Ward may cause a change.

Davies, on behalf of Mr. Sherriff Roberts, applied for the transfer of the license of Tynygroes.—Dr. Jones could not agree to the transfer on the ground that Mr. Sherriff Roberts would not be the resident landlord of the house, and therefore could not be held responsible for the conduct of the place.- All the other magistrates were in favour of granting the application, and therefore tbe transfer was made.

FESTINIOG. LITERARY AND DEBATING HOCIKTIES.—Most of the local societies are now in full operation, the season having commenced with every prospect of success. HARVEST THANKSGIVING.—A thanksgiving service was held ca Wednesday last week in Tanygrisiau Church, the Revs. E. T. Davies, Aberdovey, and Owens, Llanfrothen, officiating. On Thursday, the 16th, services were held in all the Nonconformist places of worship in the locality, and also in St. David's Church, the preachers in the latter being the Revs. E. Wil- liams and Davies, Llandudno. LOCAL BOARD.—Saturday. Present: Messrs. A. M. Dunlop (chairman), E. P. Jones (vice- chairman), W. Davies, R. Roberts, G. 11. Ellis, J. Ll. Jones, W. Owen, C. Roberts, R. Davies (clerk), D. G. Davies (surveyor), and W. C. Wil- liams (rate collector).-Oil the motion of lr. W. Owen, the committees were all merged into one, the whole board being constituted as such. lr. C. Roberts once more broached the subject of expenditure upon the Gelli Estate. The Surveyor said he had already accounted for £ 8 9s. spent upon the roads, and £ 4 upon the drain, and he said that S2 more would be ample to complete the work, but he did not include in that £2 the cost of improving a dangerous bit of road leading towards Taurallt.Nlr. F,. P. Jones said he had paid over £10 towards the improv- ing of the roads, although he had granted a lease on the land. and consequently could not be held responsible nor compelled to contribute tor that purpose. It was for the board, ms the public authority, to see that the work in question was done, but he was not the party liable, for he had in reality not to do with it now. And as to the £4: spent upon the drain he might mention that it was not at all of any advantage to him to have the said drain made through his land. His property did not need the drain, which was purely public improvement. He bad granted Davies permission to construct the drain through his land, and that was all he had had to do with-it.—The Chairman stopped the discussion by observing that the board having passed the contract, he would not allow any member now to make remarks upon the matter. It had been decided already by the majority of the board, and the question could not be re- opened.—Mr. Roberts wished to know who had empowered Lord Newborough and Mr. E. P. Jones to close the Gelli footpath, and Mr. E. P. Jones replied that this was a matter with which the board had nothing to do.—It was resolved to have a thorough investigation made into the water rate or charges paid by all who use public water, Mr. Roberts having stated that Ur. E. P. Jones, who was chairman of the finance com- mittee, had refused to allow a man at Glanypwll to have water for churning purposes unless he paid 5s. for every cow he kept whilst, he himself (Mr. Jones) frequently kept two, three, and even four cows, and only paid 8s. 3d per quarter.— Mr. E. P. Jones remarked that these matters: were brought up by Mr. Roberts from purely personal considerations. He only kept one cow as a rule, but he happened to have two at present, and paid for two. What could Mr. Roberts's object be ? Did he mean to insinuate that somebody paid too much or too little ?—The Chairman pointed out two individual cases, and asked Mr. Roberts whether their charges were too high or too low.— lr. Roberts said he did not know.—The Chair- man Then how do you come to know so minutely everything about Mr. E. P. Jones? The Chairman then said be wished to repeat what he had already said, namely, that he would not allow any member to make personal remarks about other members. If Ir. Koberts thought the water charges were not fairly adjusted, then why did he not move for a re- adjustment instead of bringing forward an individual case like this? He (the chairman) was sorry the matter had been brought forward, and it must end then and there. -Oq the motion ofJMr. E. P. Jones, seconded by Mr.W. Davies,:Mr. Dunlop was chosen to represent the local board as a governor of Bangor College for next year. PROPOSED PROVINCIAL EISTFDDFOD.-TI-e proposal to have the North Wales Provincial Eisteddfod of 1891 held at Festiniog has been warmly taken up here, although there are rumours of a similar movement at Llanrwst. Several enthusiastic meetings have been held at Blaenau to further the project and make the necessary preliminary arrangements to have the eisteddfod formally proclaimed at the earliest possible date. One meeting was held on Tuesday evening, presided over by Mr. R. O. Jones, solicitor. Mr. Gomer Evans reported that already more than £ 250 had been promised for the guarantee fund, and it was re- solved to have this fund kept open for a month, but that the bond be prepared and signed forth- with by those who bad already promised to become guarantors. rhe following- gentlemen were appointed officers: -Chairman of the general committee. Mr. W. Davies, Cae'rblaidd vice-chairmen. Messrs. Owen Jones, Erw Fair; R. O. Jones, E. P. Jones, and J. P. Jones, The Bank; treasurer, Mr. J. Newton .Tones, The Bank secretaries, Messrs. J. Jones-Morris and R. F. Williams assistant secretaries, Messrs. J. R. Cadwaladr and Richard Jones, Vron Hill. The literary, poetry, and music committees were also appointed.—Another enthusiastic meeting was held on Thursday evening, presided over by Mr. R. O. Jones, Mr. W. P. Evans acting as secretary. Mr. Richard Jones, Vron Hill, de- clined to become assistant secretary, and it was resolved that Mr. Hughes, The Bank, be re- quested to act as such. It was also decided to inform Mr. Jones-Morris that the committee were unanimous in their wish to have him as one of the secretaries. A committee was formed to make the necessary arrangements for the pro- clamation of the eisteddfod at an early date. COUNTY COURT. Thursday, Before his Honour Judge Bishop.—Judgment was given in the case of Jane Roberts against the Co- operative Society, adjourned from the previous court. This was a test case, several cases of a similar nature depending upon the isiue.-Sir. W. George appeared for Jane Roberts, and Mr. Charles Millard for the society.—Jane Roberts sued the society for money invested therein by her.—In giving judgment, his Honour pointed out that among the rules of the society was to be found a rule making it necessary that sufficient notice be given by intending with- drawers before calling back their money. This rule, in bis opinion, had been formulated with a view to preventing any possible run upon the society under any circumstances; and he found I that the plaintiff could not withdraw her money at present, nor sue the society, for she bad not complied with the rules. Consequently, judg- ment would be given for the society.—Upon the application of Mr. George, a case for a superior court was granted.Another similar case was that of the Co-operative Society and Wil- liam Roberts, Maenofferen.Mr. Millard appearing for the society, and Mr. W. George for Roberts. —Judgment was given for the society, the amount claimed from defendant, for goods supplied to be paid at the rate of 5s. per month. --Judgment for defendant was given in a case brought by David Williams, Wynn's Arms, against Morris Jones, Tycoch, claiming the value of a sheep alleged to have been killed through defendant's dog chasing it.—Mr. Millard ap- peared for plaintiff, and Mr. Jones-Morris for I Morris Jones.

The English Calvinistic Methodists, worshipping in the Town Hall, have a new chapel in course of erection, and ministers have been appointed by the Monthly Meeting to visit the numerous churches, Welsh and English, and advocate the claims of this cause. From a statement submitted by Mr. Hugh Williams, Admiralty House, the deacon of the church, about E600 have been raised from all sources, so far, towards the building fund.

The front of the chapel is of beautifully-dressed stone, and is attracting much attention.

LLANRWST. BOARD OF CONSERVATORS.—This board met on Thursday, there being present Mr, E. W. Davies (chairman), Mr. J. Blackwall, Mr. O. Isgoed Jones, Mr. J. Evans Jones, Trefriw and Mr. Thomas Davies, all, excepting Mr. Blackwall, members of County Councils.—Mr. Isgoed Jones moved that a bye-law he drafted and submitted to the Board of Trade for approval, providing an extension of time for rod and line fishing from November 15th to the 30th ot the same month. He (Mr. Isgoed Jones) said he was himself no fisherman, and only took his information from remarks made by persons in the course of con- versation. He found by the Act they they could recommend that the river be kept open till the end of November, which he found would meet with the requirements of the district.— lr. T. Davies seconded the motion.—Mr. J. Blackwall moved that the close time remain as at present.—This was seconded by Mr. J. Evans Jones, Trefriw.—For the original motion and the amendment the respected proposers and seconders only voted, making it a tie. The chairman gave his casting vote in favour of the original motion for extending the time. —Mr. Isgoed Jones said he had moved in the matter on the ground that the Conway was a late river, and that frequent complaints were made by visiting anglers as to the early closing of it. Probably, the Board of Trade would hold an inquiry into the matter on receipt of the resolution passed by the board.— The river watcher, Moses W. Roberts, submitted his report for the season, from which it appeared that for trout and salmon angling there were 319 anglers between March 1st and October 15th. The fish might be characterised as ravenous, so that rod fishermen were not successful this season. At the same time, the watcher was able to say that no disease had been found among the fish. POLICE COCRT.- Colonel Johnstone and Dr. Jones were in attendance on Monday ready to transact police business. They, however, found a clean sheet, but got no white gloves. How* ever, Mr. II. Pierce, clerk to the Llanrwst Union guardians, appeared to get the settlement of a lunatic pauper transferred from that union to that of Ruthin, and he succeeded. THE HARVEST FESTIVAL.—Thursday was observed in this town as a general holiday, when thanksgiving services for the harvest were held in all the churches and chapels. The parish church had been very neatly decorated, pampas grass making a good show in the edifice. The screen was decorated by the Rev. J. Titley Williams, the east end and font by Mrs. McEwen and Miss C. Hugh Jones, the pulpit by the Misses Hill, Henar, the lectern by Miss E. Davies, and the windows and gas standards by Mrs. P. Lewis, the pillars by Miss Fraser. St. Mary's Church had also been very tastefully decorated—the pulpit by the Rev. Ir. Davies and Mrs. Davies; the font by Miss Blackwall and Miss G. Hugh Jones the east end and reading desk by Mrs. McEwen, Miss C. Hugh Jones, the Rev. J. Titley Williams, and the Rev. T. Tudno Jones; the gas standards by Mrs. Griffith, Brynderwen and Miss Samuel- son. On Wednesday night the Rev. D. Morgan, Penrhyndeudraeth, was the preacher, and on Thursday the Rev. E. T. Davies, Aber- dovey. Collections were made in aid of the funds of the Church Extension Society and the Board of Education.

Magin, chemist; G. J. Humphreys, solicitor John Thomas, Ty'nywern, farmer and Thomas Williams, Well-street, butcher.

A private and special meeting of the town council was held on Tuesday evening for the purpose of con- ferring as to the town charities. The result will be made known in a few days. BOARD OF GUARDIANS. The fortnightly meeting of the board was held on Monday, Mr. Thomas Jones, Plas Coch, presiding. There were also present: Messrs. E. 0. V. Lloyd. Berth; T. P.

Roberts (clerk).—The Clerk reported the out-relief last quarter to be as follows :—Ruthin district, £ 394 15s. 6d. against £ 386 15s. the corresponding quarter last year Llanrhaiadr fdistrict, E281 16s. 8d. against £ 261 9s. lOd.; being a decrease on the total ex- penditure of £4 6s. 2(i.-Tlie Clerk called attention to the necessity for revising the dietary tables, and he was instructed to obtain copies of the tables in force in other Unions. This was all the business done. FIRE.—A fire occurred on Tuesday evening at a house in the occupation of Mr. Owens, Clwyd- street, originating in the chimney,and spreading to some oak beams in the flue. It was ex- tinguished, however, by the brigade before much damage was done.

c TREFRIW. ALDERMAN SAMUELSON RETIRES FROM LiVERPOOL.-Tlial, genial gentleman. Alderman Samuelson, who appears to have become enamoured of his Welsh home, Drwsycoed, Trefriw, seems to be gradually retiring from Liverpool life, and we may soon find him associating himself entirely in the Vale of Conway, its people and its affairs. It is rumoured that he intends to sever his connec- tion with the Liverpool City Council, and that at the last meeting of the literary and arts committee, on Thursday, he was to make an important announcement on the subject. II has had a long and honourable connection with the committee. Having taken this step, it is expected he will at once resign his position as an alderman. Whether this be true or not, it is the wish of all in the Yale of Conway to see him continue to reside at Drwsycoed, and that he may enjoy a long and happy life among his Welsh neighbours and the hills he so much delights in. THE DAY SCHOOL.—There are now prospects that the public elementary school here will soon be re-opened. It will be remembered that, a short time ago, it was closed owing to the lack of funds, and it was resolved at a public meeting to levy a 4d. voluntary rate. The managers of the school have appointed Mr. Cadwaladr, assistant at one of the Festiniog schools, to be teacher at a fixed salary of £ 50, with half the children's fees and half the Government grant. THE CRICKET CLUB.—On Tuesday night, fit the Jubilee Hall, a grand concert was held in aid of the Trefriw Cricket Club, the Rev. J. Gower, rector, presiding. An excellent pro- gramme had been prepared by the promoters, viz., Messrs. Veitch and Pearce. The following were the artistes:—Madames Mclntvre, Ellis (Geirionwen), Johnson, Meiklejohn, Pace, and Veitch, Messrs. Brierly, Johnson, and Roberts. In the first part, Miss Johnson secured a well- deserved encore for the very clever and finished way in which she rendered "The Better Land." Miss Ellis also scored marked success. Miss Meiklejohn and Miss Pace sang very sweetly, and the gentlemen vocalists were in good form, and added materially to the attraction of the evening. The usual votes of thanks were pro- posed by Mr. John Barnes, Mr. Veitch, and Mr. Mclntyre. The proceedings were brought to a close by singing of the National Anthem. Subsequently dancing commenced, and was kept up till the wee hours.

LORD SALISBURY AND MR. OSBORNE MORGAN. A LETTER having been published, in which Lord Salisbury, through his private seeretary et aracte-ised a passage in Mr. Osborne Morgan's speech at Eccles, as rep ,rted, as a pure inven- tion," Mr. Morgan has repliad as follows :— The language which I attributed to Lord Salisbury was used by him, though the report of what I said was necessarily very much con- densed. I now repeat my assertioLS-(l) That n one of his speeches, I think at Liverpool, Lord Salisbury compared the Irish Nationalists to Hottentots." (2) That he stated that it would take "tweaty years of resolute government to reduce the Irish party to submission, or used words to that effect. (3) That, on another occa sion, he endeavoured to throw ridicule and dig credit oo one of the most eloquent and dis- tinguished of his Indian fellow subjects-" a political opponent "-by contemptuously calling him a black man." I noted down all these expressions at the time, and I am certain that I have given them correctly. They are substan- tially what I said at Eccles, and anyone who has access to the back files of the daily news- papers may verify them for himself. G. OSBORNE MORGAN. October 20th, 1890.

THE LATE GALES.—The strong winds which prevailed at the end of last week swept with great fury over Llandudno, the direction being chiefly N.N. W.. which sorely tries this part of the collqt. It was satisfactory to find the Llandudno lifeboat men on the alert in case of a casualty. Mr. G. F. PI elton, the hon. secretary of the local branch of the lifeboat inititution, personally superintended the affairs, while Mr. J. H. Johnson, Montpelier House, signalman, kept watches for several nights over Llandudno Bay, and Mr. Joe Jones, bowman, over the Conway estuary. Fortunately, no mishap occurred.

CARNARVON COUNTY COURT. WEDNESDAY. Before his Honour Sir Horatio Lloyd. A HORSE WARRANTY CJASE, A MARE. Richard Roberts and others Griffith Jones. —This was a case heard before a, jury consisting of Alderman John Jones, JK^iidfou; Messrs, Edward Humphreys, Royal J. J. Evans, Merino; William lfamer, an(l. H. Lloyd Carter appeared for the plaintiffs, and Mr. J. 1. Roberts defended.—The defendant put in a claiin for £4 odd.—Mr. Carter said the action was brought tu recover damages for a breach of warranty on the sale of a mare.—The circumstances of the case were shortly as follows: Ihe plaintiffs were appointed on a committee at Llanddeiniolen to collect a sum of money towards providing a man named John Rowlands, who had broken his arm, with a horse and cart. A fair was held at Carnarvon on the 16th of May last, and the defendant brought his grey mare there to be sold. It was in charge of Mr. Henry Parry, Ysgubor Goch. The price asked for the mare was EI5, and it was said that the animal would work very well for the pur- pose of carting coal. Eventually, f-13 was agieed upon, and John Rowlands took the mare home. It remained there for about a, week until a cart was purchased. The first day the mare was put in a cart it would not do anything, and as far as they could see, could not do any work. The defendant was told that the mare was of no good and he said he would return the money, but that he had only £ 7 with him and would pay the remainder on the following Saturday.—Mr. Carter went on to fisk the jury to consider three questions, namely (1) was there a warranty given (2) did the mare prove not to be what she was represented to be (3) what was her value?—The following evidence was then given :-lticlnrd Roberts, Tymawr, Llanddeiniolen, said he was one of those ap- pointed to purchase a horse for John Rowlands, He attended Carnarvon fair and asked fr. II. Parry the price of a maie, and he said £ 15. Mr. Parry told witness it would work properly. Witness said he wanted it for a man to carry coal, and he said it would do for that purpose. Subsequently, they went to the Albert Inn and agreed upon a price— £ 14. Witness paid the money. After the mare had been returned de- fendant said lie wanted E4 damages.—John Rowlands deposed to being with the last witness at Carnarvon fair iu May, and otherwise corro- borated the previous witness. It was about a week before witness used the mare when he took her to Portdinorwic for half-a-ton of coal. She was proceeding up the hill when she com- menced backing." On the turnpike road she again stopped. If she had backed" on the other side the cart would have been smashed. She afterwards lay down on the road like a hare" (laughter). This performance was re- peated and, ultimately, about thirty persons had to push the cart towards home,-Cross-ex- amined I cannot tell how old I am, but I may be approaching forty years (laughter). I cannot say within ten years how long I worked at the quarry; but I had had some experience of animals. There was no fear of the mare being too fresh (laughter), as she was more like a mule (renewed laughter). The mare was only slightly injured by the fall.-Griffith Parry, farmer, Ty'nrhos, Llanddeiniolen, said he was not present when the mare was bought, but he saw her afterwards. He detailed the experience they had had on the road, and gave it as his opinion that the mare was not worth anything. —Edward John Thomas, auctioneer, Carnarvon, said that he sold the mare to Griffith Jones for 35s.—Cross-examined: Griffith Jones paid me, and another man bought it.—Mr. J. T. Roberts: We have another version of that. — Hugh Hughes, schoolmaster, Llanddeiniolen, said he was secretary of the committee, and had tried to come to some arrangement with the defen- dant, who said that after the mare had been returned by Rowlands he had sold it at Cric- cieth fair for E13, but had been obliged to return that money.—Mr. J. T. Roberts, in addressing the jury, said the mare was left in charge of Henry Parry, who was expected to sell her, but not to give any warranty. He was to sell her openly to any one who might buy on those cotiditions.-Griffitti Jones, the defendant, said he remembered sending the mare to the fair. He used her for ploughing and other work. Witness bought her of John Hughes, Tan'rallt. He paid him 50s. in money, and a ton of hay for her. When John Rowlands came to witness he said that the mare would not answer his purpose. Witness said lie wanted to see Henry Parry, and on asking Parry if he warranted the mare, he replied that he had not. Witness said he would take the animal back if it was not injured. Rowlands did not tell him that the mare was injured. Witness noticed that there was a bad cut on her knee When witness asked Rowlands how the animal had been injured, he said it had fallen in the cart. The mare worked for the witness now.—Cross-examined He did not know how much John Hughes paid for the mare. She had been in witness's posses- sion about soven or eight months prior to the 15th May.—Henry Parry, carrier, Carnarvon. said he took the mare to the fair for Griffith Jones.
