PROPOSED MILITARY CAMP AT ABER. THE SCHEME ABANDONED. Tho arrangements to establish a military camp on an extensive scale at Aber, near Ban- gor, have oome to an abrupt termination. Last year, it will be remembered, General French visited Aber, and was so favourably im- pressed with tho district as an ideal place for mountain manoeuvring that he induced the War Oilioo to maW arrangements to establish a per- j manent camp there. OiiiciaLi were sent down from the War Office, but insurmountable diffi- culties at onoo presented themselves. For in- stance, it was found that the sheep which grazed on the mountains in the neighbourhood of Aber belonged to hundreds of different owners, tho parish of Aber possessing a unique distinction in that respect, and the officials felt that it would be useless endeavouring to obtain the consent of all the different sheep owners to the soldiers' manoeuvring amongst their flocks. Another difficulty wluch faced the officials 'was tho water supply. Whilst there is an abundance of water for the. inhabitants of tho village, it was found that the supply would not suffice for tho large camp which was contem- 14lated.
