MACHYNLLETH. 'ETTY SESSIONS. These Session were held on Wednesday, before Messrs Joseph Kvans and Edward Danes.—Margaret Jones charged David Francis with threatening to assault- her on June 6th. After L r i I e n.-rmng the evidence, both parties were, bound over to keep the peace for six months in the sum of zeD and pay 5s. each costs.— Hugh Richards was sum- moned by D. Davies Williams for non-payment of r'1e3, and warrants were issued ro enforce payment -N,* -If u teen days.—Morris Jones, Llanbrynmair, atjp!ied for a certificate to store gun powder, and i: was granted.—For being drunk. Daniel Lewis was fined 5s. and 8s. costs, in default 14 days.—The Ci:airman (Mr Joseph Brans) referring to the recent i-oval visit, said that he thought the Court should | express its thanks to Lady Lon< londerry, for the privilege given to them of receiving royalty Jintoithe u town. At the same time he wished to not only con- gratulate the inhabitants of the town and neigh- bourhood, but all of those who had taken part in the event. on the very orderly manner they had con- ducted everything. He though: that all parties had endeavoured to do their utmost to keep good order throughout a busy week. The Chief Constable and his "t1.ff were to be complimented upon the way had carried out their work, and the great courtesy they had shown to everybody. He thought that it was their duty to pass a resolution thanking Lady Londonderry for inviting the Royal party to the town.—Mr Edward Davies seconded, and it was carried. RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL.—WEDNESDAY. Mr. Edward Hughes presided ",cr a meeting of the council held at the Workhouse. THE DOvEY BRIDGE. A letter was read from Mr. Griffiths (Sir Watkin Williams Wy, tin's agent) stating that Sir Watkin was willing to give the timber for erecting a fence ever his land adjoining the bridge. He was also prepared to sell oak for the remainder of the fences at ninepence per cubic foot. It was agreed to accept the offer and to thank Sir Watkin for his kindness. The clerk reported that at the last meeting of the council he was directed to attend the meeting of the County Council to lay before them the council's application and press for the erection of^this bridge as speedily as possible. The council (l^ural) had passed a resolution guaranteeing half the cost of the bridge and one third of the cost of the road improvement. That was prepared and formerly placed before the County Council on Thursday morning. He was not quite ready with the conveyances but he hoped to have them com- pleted in a fortnight. Every readiness was shown ) by tne County Council to facilitate the erection of the bridge as soon as possible. Instructions were giy"a the county surveyor co proceed with the brldp forrhwirh. The following letter was re- ceived from Mr. Edward Davies, Dolcaradog, "At I the last meeting of your council yeu very judiciously resolved to send your clerk (Mr. David Evans) to attend the quarterly meeting of the Montgomery- shire County Council at Welsh pool on the 19th inst. As we had an unusually long agenda to go through we were summoned to attend at 9 45 a. m. and to enable your clerk and others from this end to be present when Xo. 2 was brought on, it was requisite that they should be there the night before. T,he actual state of the bridge business at this end being then rather complicated I believe nothing but the presence of your clerk could have elucidated it. This he did so satisfactorily that so far as our county council was concerned it was finally settled. My chief object in sending this communication is not so much to commend the efficient services of your clerk, but rather the wisdom of your send- ing him there and a desire that a special note be taken of the act for future guidance." BOKT WATER SUPPLY. The inspector reported with reference to the supply of water to Bont, Llanbrynmair, that notice had been given to the occupier of the land through which the pipe line would run, and the occupier now said that he would require compensa- tion for the damage which would be done to the pasture and hay. The pipe line would run through 150 yards of pasture land and 20 yards of meadow where the hay was uncut. He thought that a small sum would satisfy the occupier of the farm. It was decided to pay the occupier of the land so me compensation. ROYAL VISIT. On the motioL of the chairman it was decided to pass a similar vote of thanks to Lady Londonderry as that passed by the Board of Guardians. SCHOOL ATTENDANCE COMMITTEE. Mr. N. B. Owen presided over this committee. The clerk said that he was willing to accept JE3 for his services as clerk to the committee instead of £5 in consequence of the liberal treatment of the assessment committee.

ABUSING HIS PRIVILEGE. The Master reported that a pauper who had been allowed out on leave had returned home drunk and had been punished. -Mrs Lloyd thought it was dis- graceful that paupers should get drunk when out on leave, and it was decided that the Visiting Com- mittee should see the offender. DISOBEYING ORDERS. The Master reported that a tramp named John Holland, absconded without, doing his task, and the case was dismissed by the Bench. Two other tramps were sent to prison for tearing their clothes and refusing to break the stones. IN-DOOR PAUPERISM. There were at present in the House 35 as com- pared with 33 during the same period of last year. During the past four weeks 92 tramps had been relieved, as compared with 77 during the corres- ponding period of last year. TREATING THE INMATES. Tho Master reported that Mr John Rowlands (the chairman) had subscribed 5s Towards decorating the house on the recent Royal visit, and that Mrs Lloyd, Bank Place, had treated the inmates with a liberal supply of cakes, Mr Francis, of Llwynaeran, had presented the children with 10s towards purchasing a cricket set for the boys of the house.—On the proposition of Mr William Jones, seconded by Mr John Owen, a hearty vote of thanks was passed to [ the donors. SERVICES IN THE HOUSE. R wUne services were held in the house by ev • Jones and Rev W. Griffiths (Swansea). APPOINTMENT. Bm read from the Local Government mp^r that they approved of the re-appoint- XT' n the 25th March, 1897, inclusive, of Mr Machv^llet},arSch°01 Attei^ance Officer, to the Elementary Frf1* • Under the Provisions of the General oZi TatlOTI Act, 1876, and of the Jut f877 Tl°^hel4th April, 1877, and 4th of movt of Mr Howell nV* aPProved of the Pa-V" per annum for the period nnX,^ °f £ 8 8* THE TREATMENT OF TR\MPC A letter was read from THO T Hoard acknowledging thP jal Government letter of May 22rd"n whiKPt n ^dians' that they were of opinion that thl Stated necessity at the present time for incaSm^3 pense of providing additional acco^3 6X: the Workhouse for vagrants The Rra °dation at that the Guardians w^ould not be ?S^dered longer delaying to provide propel accommolf^ for vagrants to enable the regulations to be strictlv carried out and to obtain a uniformity of treatrmw thronghout the country. To do this it was nece^ to provide some separate sleeping and working cells The Board had already informed the Guardians that they would be satisfied with six or eight cells in addition to a small associated ward and working cells which might be combined or not with the sleeping cell, provision also being made for drying clothes, relieving wants of nature. The Board now requested the Guardians to proceed to prepare plans accordingly and submit them for approval forth- with. --U-Pon the suggestion of the Chairman, the letter was referred to the Committee already ap- pointed to consider the matter. REMUNERATION OF THE CLERK. The recommendation of the Assessment Com- mittee that the Clerk should be paid an extra sum of £90 as remuneration for work done in connection with the Assessment Committee was considered.- The Clerk pointed out the amount of extra work that had fell upon him, and said that he would be L50 out of pocket in the matter. His bill was £ 128, but he had consented to accept £ 90.— On the proposition of Mr Edward Hughes, seconded by Mrs Lloyd, it was agreed to pay him £90. THE ROYAL VISIT. The Chairman, speaking in reference to the recent visit to the town of the Prince and Princess of Wales and the Princesses Victoria and Maud, pointed out the benefit that the town would be likely to obtain from such a visit. They were much indebted to the Dowager Marchioness of Londonderry, who had invited the Royal party to Plas Machynlleth, for the honour that had been conferred upon the town, and he thought that the Board should pass a hearty vote of thanks to her ladyship.—Mrs Lloyd seconded.—The proposition was supported by Mr N. 13. Owen and carried unanimously.—The Clerk was asked to send the resolution to her ladyship. T H E R () Y A L V 1 S I T TOP LAS MACHYNLLETH. DEPAKTUKK FOR ( ARi)IFr Large crowds assembled along the line of route at Machynlleth on Saturday, to watch the departure of the Royal Party. The Prince of Wales, accom- panied by the Princess of Wales and the Princesses Victoria and Maud, arrived at the station in good time, and were greeted by the spectators with cheers. On the station there were assembled the members of the Executive Committee, several ladies, and both platforms were crowded with enthusiastic throngs. The Royal party were atten- ded by the Marquis of Londonderry, the Marchioness (Dowager) of Londonderry, Lord Herbert Vane- Tempest, Lord Henry Vane-Tempest, Lord Herschel], Lord Aberdarc. Lord Tredegar, Lord Penrhyn, the Lady-in- Waiting, and the members of the suite. There were also on the platform, ■ Mr. Buckley (Chairman of the Cambrian Railways Company). Mr. M'clure. M.P. (director), Mr. C. S. Denniss (general manager), Mr. Gongh (passenger superintendent), Mr Henry, Mr R. Gillart, Mr David Evans, Mr. R. Hughes (chief constable), and many others. Lord Powis and Sir Watkin Williams- W yYlll, left by the morning train, some minutes before the arrival of the Boyal party. The Royal party repeatedly acknowledged the hearty cheers of tho-e assembled, and when the Dowager Marchioness of Londonderry stepped towards the door of the saloon, the Prince of Wales rose from his seat in the corner of the saloon and smilingly raised his hat to her ladyship, the Princess of Wales and her two daughters who stood near to the door of the saloon, formed a striking picture and constantly bowed their heads in response to the cheering. It is said that the Royal party were much pleased with their visit and would have re- mained over Sunday at Phis Machynlleth, had they not been due at Cardiff on the Saturday. MEETING OF THE EXECUTIVE. On Monday evening Mr H. Lloyd-Jones presided over a meeting of the Executive Committee held in the Town Hall when there were also present—Mrs Pritchard, Mrs Edmunds, Mrs Lloyd, Canon Trevor, Rev Josiah Jones, Messrs Edward Davies, R. C. Anwyl, J. Evans, E. Rees, E. Gillart, Dr Davies, N. Lloyd-Jones, N. B. Owen, John Rowlands, G. W. Griffiths, J. Thomas, W. M. Jones, J. Pugh, Evan Rees, J. Edmunds, Dr Matthews, John Evans, H. Pearce, Peter Williams, Mr David Evans (hon. sec.), and others.—Mr David Evans explained that in consequence of numerous representations made to him in the town and distiict generally as to what steps should be taken to show their appreciation and gratitude to the Marchioness (D) of London- derry, but he regretted to say that it was the desire of her ladyship, whilst she deeply appreciated their kindness, not to be the recipient of anything her- self to commemorate the Royal visit. Mr Evans then read the following letter June 27th, 1896. Plas Machynlleth, North Wales. Dear Mr Evans,— I should be greatly obliged to you if you will express to the inhabitants of Machynlleth and dis- trict my warm appreciation for the very handsome and loyal reception they accorded to their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales, and the Princesses, on their visit to Machynlleth. Also for their beautiful decorations and illuminations, not forgetting the orderly and respectful manner they displayed to my Royal guests.—Yours truly, M. LONDONDERRY." He also submitted a copy of a resolution which he had drafted for the meeting.Canon Trevor whilst agreeing with the sentiments contained in the resolution asked that some soft of expression of thanks should be added, and with this suggestion he proposed that it be left 119 to Mr Evans to draw up the wording.—Capt. Richards seconded.—Mr R. C. Anwyl thought that they should assure her ladyship of their earnest hope that she should long be spared to live amongst them, and that they were ever ready to co-operate when on whatever occasion she might call to their aid (hear, hear).—Canon Trevor endorsed the words. —Mr Evans asked that some assistance should be given him to draw up the resolution, and the follow- ing were appointed: Canon Trevor, Rev Joshiah Jones, Messrs H Lloyd Jones, Edward Davies, and R. C. Anwyl —Mr David Evans suggested that copies of the letter and the resolution should be printed and distributed amongst the inhabitants of the town and district. Many who were too poor to subscribe had gone to the trouble of illuminating their houses and it would be some satisfaction for them to know that their efforts were appreciated (hear, hear).—Mr E. Gillart said that it ought to be in English and Welsh, and on the proposition of Mr Joseph Evans, seconded by Mr B. Pearce it as decided to have it in both languages. -On the proposition of Mr Edward Rees, seconded by Air. Anwyl, it was agreed to have another meeting at which the complete resolution or address should be presented. —On the proposition of Mr. Edward Rees, seconded by Mr. N. B. Owen, it was decided that it should be signed by the Chairman and hon. seci'etary.—Jlr. David Evans Evans said that at the meeting oil Thursday he omitted to extend his thanks to the members of the committee, and to Ir. Edward Davies and Rev. Josiah Jones for assisting him in translating the address from English into Welsh (hear, hear).—Mr. Peter Williams then proposed and Mr. E. Gillart seconded a vote of thanks to these gentlemen, and it was carried.—Mr. Edward Davies having humorously replied, Dr. A. O. Davies proposed and Mr. Auwyl seconded a vote of thanks to the chairman. The vote was carried, and Mr. Lloyd-Jones said that he was induced to take the chair that evening by the thought of the kind assistance he had all along received from them.
ABERDOVEY. LIFE BOAT PRACTICE.—On Tuesday morning the" life boat was called out for its periodical practice. The crew turned up promptly, and went through their work with precision, under the command of the coxswain, Mr. John Bell. UNITED SUNDAY ScHOOi.s' Tmp. -The preliminary arrangements made for the United Sunday Schools' Trip to Llangollen have fallen through. The counter attractions of the Royal Visit it was sug- gested were drawbacks to a successful trip, which in consequence has been abandoned for the present. ST. PETER'S CHURCH.—Owing to the unavoidabl. absence of the Vicar through the continued illness of Mrs Rowlands, there was only one service, con- ducted by Rev R. Davies, Towyn, held in the Parish Church, on Sunday. Much sympathy is expressed for Mrs Rowlands in her trying illness. THE ROYAL VISIT.A large number from Aber- dovey visited Machynlleth and Aberystwyth to see the Royal procession. On Friday, rockets were fired near the Life Boat House, by Mr John Bell, Cox- swain, who in the estimation of his friends is an emblem of loyalty. Many flags were displayed in the town, the "Royal Standard," and "Union Jack" set up on Aberdovey Hall, by Mr John Griffiths (caretaker) being plainly visible from the Pier at Aberystwyth. OBITUARY. Mr Peter Price died at his residence in Church-street, Aberdovey, on Tuesday morning, after a short illness, at the age of 81 years. The deceased was well known throughout a large dis- trict, and more especially to the farming com- munity, having been the occupant for many years cf Castell Fawr Farm, near Llanegryn. He retired from farming some years ago and lived at Aber- dovey. He was a deacon and treasurer of the Tabernacle C.M. Church, and will be greatly missed as a sick visitor. The funeral will take place on Friday at two o'clock.
CORRIS. THE BOARD SCHOOL.—A considerable addition is about to be made to the Board School, plans of which have been prepared by Mr R. P. Morgan, Assoc. San. Inst., architect, Towyn. A large class- room is to be added to the school, also cloak-rooms, and new Dormer windows to the main school, and the sanitary arrangements of the school are to be constructed on a more modern Hn«S + contract has been let to Mr W. J. Hughes, contractor, Aberdovey, for about £ 500.
CEMMAES ROAD statkm 17thelS^ f thpir • i.. uweiimg near showed loyaifcy during the passage of the Roval train m a manner worthy of record. Mr. Wilson station master, assisted by other officials, had decorated flats &cU M dR 8 7*ry tastefully with Hags, Ac. Mr. Rees, Dovey alley Hotel, had also |-one to a great trouble m erecting green arches decorated with flags at the main entrance, while large flags were fastened to the upstairs windows of the hotel, making a very gay show. Dr Edwards had made his residence gay with bunting, having large flags through the windows, and a number of small ones nailed to the palisades in front, which altogether made a very grand display. A large crowd watched the passage of the train and the Royal party had some hearty cheering given them.
LLANIDLOES. RECEPTION OF THE PRINCE AND PRINCESS OF WALES. Considerable interest was aroused at Llanidloes on the occasion of the Prince and Princess of Wales passing through en i-oitte for Cardiff and extensive preparations were made. At the station the decora- tions were most profuse, and a number of evergreen trees were erected which had been kindly given by Mr Shore (agent of Dol-llys estate) and Mr James Grant (Penrallt). The whole of the lamp-posts were either draped in scarlet or entwined with evergreens, the work being carried out by Messrs Richard and John Jerman. On either side were mottoes, one of which was given by Miss Marshall, Severn View, and was the work of Mr Wm. Crisp. It occupied a very prominent position on the down platform, the wording being God bless the Prince and Pi-incess." Above this upon a large shield appeared the Prince of Wales'plumes, which had been done by Lieutenant Lewis Lloyd and Miss Marshall. The other motto. The Prince and Princess," was placed on the up platform and was presented by Mr Edward Hamer, Plynlimon House, who also gave the small flags that decorated the lamp tops on both platforms. Strung up from side to side were three streamers upon which were hung flags with a wealth of pleasing colours. Two of them, together with other bunting, were sent by Mr George Owen, chief engineer, Oswestry. In addition to the persons named, conspicuous among the many willing workers was Mr H. Dulston, stationmaster, who took considerable interest and pains in the carrying out of the work. The down platform was reserved for those holding compli- mentary tickets, of which there were about 250. and the up platform was thrown open to the general public, many hundreds availing themselves of the opportunity. The children of the National, Board, and Gorn House Schools who were in charge of their teachers, occupied the path from Biyndu bridge. to the signal box on the south side of the station. A number of the public also occupied the bank on the other side. The Borough Brass Band (conducted by Mr. Lewis Rowlands), the Town Council, headed by the Mayor (Mr. A. J. Morris) in his robes of office, and the Borough Member (Major E. Pryce-Jones, M.P.) occupied the centre of the platform, flanked on either side by the local detachment of volunteers as a guard of honour, under the command of Major Hutchins and Lieut. Lewis Lloyd. The district police were also present under the charge of Inspector Lake. The engine was in charge of Mr. Edward Williams, his fireman being lr. Joseph Hampton, and the guard was Mr. Edward Shone, all being from Llanidloes. The Royal train was timed to reach Llanidloes at 10 41. Before entering the station it slowed down, and everybody had a good view of the Royal party. In passing through T.R.H. the Prince and Princess bowed repeatedly in response to the enthusiastic cheering of the onlookers, and the music of the Band which played God save the Queen as the train hove in sight, and God bless the Prince of Wales as it passed through. Miss Jones, daughter of Rev. E. 0. Jones, M.A., Vicar, held in her hand a beautiful bouquet, which she had intended present- ing to the Princess, but failed to do so owing to the window being closed. It was, however, handed to Mr George Owen in one of the carriages as the train slowly passed through the station. On arrival at Talyllyn Junction, Mr C. S. Denniss, the general manager, had the honour of presenting the bouquet to the Princess of Wales, and Her Royal Highness stated, that she was very pleased to receive it; that she had noticed the young lady with it on the platform as the train passed Llanidloes, and regretted she was unable to receive it from Miss Jones herself. Upon the return of the engine in the afternoon, before the decorations had been removed, several photos of it were taken together with those in charge. The Volunteers and Town Band were afterwards entertained to an excellent luncheon at the Trewythen Hotel, kindly given by the Mayor, when upwards of 60 sat down, among those present being Major Pryce-Jones. M.P., and Messrs. J. R. Pryse, Pantdrain and Nicholas Bennett, Glanyrafon. The luncheon having been done ample justice to, the toasts of "The Queen" and "Prince and Princess of Wales were drunk with enthusiasm during the singing of the National Anthem" and God bless the Prince of Wales.Major G. A. Hutchins in proposing the toast of "Major Pryce-Jones, M.P., the Borough member," said he was sure they were all very pleased to see him present, more especially so, as he was an Honorary Major in the Yeomanry, and their interests were identical (loud cheers).— The toast was received with enthusiastic cheering. —Major Pryce-Jones, who on rising to respond was accorded a most flattering reception, said he could assure them he felt it a great honour to be present on that occasion and to have his health proposed so generously as it had been that day. He took that opportunity of congratulating the Llanidloes Corps of the 1st Herefordshire Volunteers upon the very smart and soldierlike appearance they had displayed that morning (loud cheers). He had had the pleasure in the past as an officer in the Mont- gomeryshire. Yeomany of attending a Church parade, in that ancient borough, and he thought it his duty to say that at the Railway Station those that turned out under Major Hutchins and Lieut Lloyd, that the Volunteer service bad been well represented (loud applause). If he might be allowed to trespass a little further, he hoped that the example which the borough of Llanidloes had shewn in serving the country by supplying its re- presentation of Volunteers would be followed at an early date by the other boroughs and towns in Montgomeryshire (applause). He had also to con- gratulate and to express the appreciation of the county of Montgomery on the occasion of their Royal Highnesses passing through the ancient borough of Llanidloes, at the creditable shew of the Volunteers and the compliment paid to the Prince and Princess of Wales by the attendance of the Borough Brass Band (cheers). Although he was aware red coats always attracted the attention of the people and even of Royalty, still without a little music, and such good music as was played that day, the proceedings would have been very tame. As, occupying for the time being, the very responsible trust of representing the important interests of- the Montgomery Boroughs in the House of Commons, he should like to propose the health of the gallant Major, who so ably, by exami- nation, by rank, and by ability filled the very high position in their regiment. He (the speaker) knew that before Major Hutchins came to Montgomery- shire, he belonged to a very crack regiment of Volunteers, and he considered that the 1st Here- fordshire were very fortunate to enlist so good an officer to take his place among them. He concluded by asking the non-commissioned officers and men of the 1st Herefordshire Volunteers to drink his very good health (loud cheers).—The toast was heartily received, Major Hutchins responded in a few appropriate words. Afterwards was sung The land of my Fathers."— Major Pryce-Jones, in proposing the health of the Mayor (Councillor A. J. Morris), said he felt it a great privilege to be asked to do so, representing as he did the Aldermen and Councillors of the borough of Llanidloes. On occasions like that, when soldiers met as soldiers and in the presence of Royalty, politics and religion did not come in (cheers). He should not have had the pleasure of coming there that morning if it had not been for the kind invitation of the Mayor and Councillors. He could scarcely say how very pleased he was to join with them, the Volunteers and the Corporation and population of Llanidloes, in showing respect to the Royal party while passing through that ancient borough. If he might be allowed to say, those who had the privilege of going to Aberystwyth the previous day must have been greatly struck by the brilliant gathering. At the University all Wales were assembled in order to instal as first Chancellor of the University no less a personage than H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, who some day we hope will reign over this great Empire of ours (loud cheers). He desired therefore, on his own behalf and on behalf of Major Hutchins, Lieut. Lloyd, and the Volunteers, to thank the Mayor for the hospitality he had shown to them that day, and to wish him health and strength in his capacity to make the town prosperous in the future (loud applause). —The toast was well received, the company singing For he's a jolly good fellow."—Private Chris. Roberts, on rising to propose The health of Lieut. Lloyd," said it gave him the greatest pleasure to propose the health of their lieutenant, who had done so much in the interests of the K Company of the Llanidloes Detachment. He thought as an officer it would be hard to find his equal—(loud cheers)-and had it not been for his endeavours, they would not have been placed in such a high position as they were that day. He hoped that every man present would appreciate his endeavours to make the Company efficient (applause).— He described Lieut. Lloyd as a soldier from his shoes up, and he was of opinion that if they had more officers of his stamp they would have a Volunteer Corps and Band second to none in Wales (loud cheers).—The toast was received with musical honours. Lieut. Lloyd thanked them one and all for the way they had received his toast. He did not think he deserved all that had been said, buifc he always endeavoured to do all he could in the interests of the Volunteers and the Borough Brass Band (loud cheers).—Although he was not sure how long he wvuld be amongst them, as he had to look out for work the same as everyone else (laughter), he could assure them he would always be pleased to do what he could (cheers). He, as Lieutenant, felt I highly honoured that day to appear with them as a guard of honour to the Prince of Wales, and he thought they ought to be extremely thankful to Major Pryce-Jones for coming amongst them that day (loud cheers).—Private Evan Davies also spoke. Major Hutchins in proposing the toast of The Band" coupled with it the Band Master, Mr Lewis Row- lands. The toast having been duly honoured, Mr Lewis Rowlands and Mr Charles Owen. responded.

NEWTOWN. HAWKING WITHOUT A LICENSE.- At the Police Court on Monday before Mr A. Ford, John Sinnott was charged with hawking without a license that day. Dismissed on promising to leave the town. INTERMEDIATE EDUCATION, Wednesday.—Present: Mr R, Lloyd (in the chair), Mrs T. M. Taylor, Messrs R. Williams and J. Hughes, with Mr C. E. Churchill, assistant clerk, Major Pryce-Jones, M.P. wrote thanking the Board for the offer of a seat on the Board, but regretted that he would not be able to attend meetings which for a short time would, necessarily be of a most important and responsible character, and he must therefore de- cliue. At the same time he thanked the Board for their invitation and regretted his inability to accept it.- Mr 'feather, the architect, wrote accepting his appointment as architect and asking for a premium of X20 which was offered for the best set of plans. He pointed out that as these original plans were not followed he had had to prepare entirely new ones. The question of the payment- of the prem- ium was deferred until the next meeting. It was decided to ask the architect to send the plans at an early date in time for the meeting of the County Governing Body.—The Headmaster and Head- mistress (Mr Tetley and Miss Nott) wrote in reference to the prize day, suggesting that it should take place at the end of the present term, and that it would be a good opportunity for calling the attention of the public to the claim of the school on its support. It was agreed that prizes be given, the cost not to exceed £ 7 10s.—The head teachers together with the Chairman and Vice-chairman were deputed to make arrangements and to fix the date, the meeting to be held in the Boys' School- room. Mrs T. M. Taylor thought it very desirable that the public should fully understand their financial position.—The Clerk was instructed to apply to the County Governing Body for the balance due from that Body at the end of the financial year and for their contribution of 9200 on account of the current year. SAD CAS; OF DROWNING.—At the Montgomery- shire Infirmary on Monday afternoon, an inquest was held by the Coroner, Mr R. Williams, touching the death of Francis Henry Ryland, late of Cryn- fryn Place, whose body was found in the Severn on Saturday. Mr G. H. Ellison was appointed foreman of the jury.—The first witness called was Ernest Neale Ryland, who identified the body as being that of his father, who was engaged as head gardener at Newtown Hall, and whp was last seen alive by witness at 11 o'clock on Saturday morning. Seeing that the deceased did not as usual return home for dinner and tea his wife became uneasy, and witness went with Mr Walker, footman, in search of him, with the result that deceased was found by them in the river, cn the Dolerw side. Deceased was not subject to fits, and was very cheerful on the morning of his death. Ho was 39 years of age and could swim.—Henry Arnold, 58, Ladywell-street, under-gardener at Newtown Hall, deposed to seeing deceased about noon on Saturday. He heard Walker, the footman, say that deceased was to fetch the boat from Dolerw grounds, so that Major Pryce-Jones might go across in it that evening. Witness was accustomed to go with him to fetch the boat but did not go on Saturday. Deceased, who did not appear to be afraid of the water, used to stand on the gravel where the boat was fastened to a stump, unhook the boat, and jump in with the chain in his hand. Witness, who accompanied last witness in search of the deceased, stated that the body was found about four yards below the boat. Thomas Walker, footman at New- town Hall, stated that about 8.30 on Saturday morning he heard Major Pryce-Jones giving orders to deceased to fetch the boat from Dolerw grounds. Finding, later on in the day that the deceased was missing, witness went to see if the boat bad been fetched, and saw that it was still on the other side. Having fetched the boat to the Newtown side of the river, he (witness) found several persons look- ing for deceased. In company with deceased's son he took the boat across the river, and found the body of the deceased in the water with his face downwards, his shirt sleeves being rolled up. He then gave the alarm to Owen the coachman, and Shute the gardener, from Dolerw.-P.C. Parry stated that about 8 o'clock on Saturday evening, from information received, he proceeded to the river where he found the body of the deceased in about three feet of water, on the Dolerw side of the river. Deceased was lying on his face. The arms were extended, the hands being slightly clenched and stiff. Deceased had neither coat, boots nor stockings on. Witness had since found the coat at Newtown Hall, though the shoes and stockings were still missing. He did not observe any marks on the body of the deceased beyond a slight abrasion of the left ear and another under the chin. In the pockets of the deceased were found a watch which bad stopped at 12-33, one shilling and threepence in silyer and copper, a tobacco pouch, a pipe and a box of matches. There were no marks on the head, the- river, or on the banks of any struggle having taken place. The ear bled after the body was brought into the mortuary. The river was so shallow that deceased might have crossed a little lower down without wetting his feet.—This concluded the evi- dence, and after a lengthy deliberation the jury returned a verdict of Accidentally drowned. The Coroner said that it had been suggested tohim that it would be fitting to pass a vote of condolence with the widow and family. He quite agreed with that suggestion, for the deceased seemed to be a man very much respected by all who knew him. The circumstances of his death were very sad and distressing, and the least they could do was to offer their sympathy to the surviving relatives in their sad bereavement.—We understand that Major Pryce-Jones, M.P., the deceased's employer, has generously undertaken to defray the expenses con- nected with the funeral, and also providing mourn- ing for the servants at Newtown Hall.
MANAFON. PARISH MEETING. A parish meeting was held in the National Schoolroom on Wednesday. Mr. T. J. Hounsfield presided.

MONTG OMERYSHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS. TRIAL OF PRISONERS AT NEWTOWN. The July general Quarter Sessions of the Peace were held at Newtown on Thursday, Mr A. C. al Humphreys-Owen, M.P. (deputy chairman), pre- siding. The other magistrates present were Messrs H. Owen Johnes, J. Smout, R.'Lloyd, T. J. Houns- fielfi, with Mr G. D. Harrison (under sheriff and clerk of the peace), and Mr R. W. Hughes (chief constable). ° Mr Evan Kinsey, of Maesmawr, was sworn in as magistrate. GRAND JURY. The following were sworn in on the Grand Jury -Messrs Henry Morgan (foreman), Edward Lewis, John Hughes, E. H. Morgan, R. Breeze, Joseph Smith, W. F. Pryce, Charles Miller, E. Davies, W. Byewater, Richard James, Edward Lewis, M. E. Powell, Edward Jones (Severn place), J. Croft Lewis, John Lewis, J. J. Lewis, William Brown, Evan Bebb, Thomas Morgan, W. Rogers, and Tlios. Jones. THE ROYAL VISIT. The President, in his charge to the Grand Jury, observed that he did not ordinarily refer to matters outside the calendar, but he thought on that occasion that he would be doing what was consonant with the feelings of many in the county if he congratulated them and through them the county, on the aus- picious event of the visit of the Prince and Princess of Wales through the county for the purpose of the installation of the Prince as Chancellor of the University of Wales. The visit of their Royal Highnessess had been of the most gratifying character, and none the less gratifying was it to them to know that the address presented to the Prince of Wales, on behalf of the county, received from his Royal Highness especial notice, in respect y 11 of their reference to the lato Prince Consort. The Prince, in his reply to the address, spoke of the special pleasure that reference would give to Her Majesty, as well as it gave himself. Turning to the business of the day, he said there were only two cases to be brought before them, one (the first) being of a simple character indeed, whilst the other was more difficult. With reference to the latter he remarked that the chief thing the jury had to decide was whether the prosecutor was in- duced to part with the horses, owing to Smith's statements, or whether prosecutor sold the horses to defendant on credit. The evidence seemed rather weak, and the jury must examine the witnesses carefully before returning a true bill, and see whether the case was one of a civil rather than a criminal prosecution. ALLEGED FELONY AT XEWTOWX. Richard Webster (27), groom, lately employed at the Black Boy Inn, Newtown, surrendered to his bail on the charge for that he on the 12th February last, at the parish of Newtown, being the bailee of the sum of 3s, the monies of Jane and Elizabeth Davies, fraudulently converted the same to his own use. He was similarly charged with respect to a like sum on the 13th March last.— Prisoner pleaded not guilty." Mr Colt Williams (instructed by Mr T. M. Taylor) prosecuted, and Mr Ellis Jones Griffiths, M.P. (instructed by Mr Martin Woosnam) defended.— Jane Elizabeth Davies, employed as a servant at the Black Boy Inn, said the prisoner was employed at the same place until March last. The month previously, on the 12th, she gave the prisoner 3s to take to Mr Martin Owen's (the County Court bailiff) office, a man named John Getbin having obtained a County Court summons of 3s a month against her. She gave him another 3s on the 13th March with the same purpose, and in reference to the same debt. In April she got a judgment summons against her for 6s 9d, being 6s for the two instalments before referred to, and 9d court fees. She then paid in April the 6s 9d, and also another 3s being the in- stalment then dne. She did not know till then that the 6s she gave to the prisoner had not been paid.—By Mr Griffith The original sum she owed Mr Gethin was £2 7s, which was for nursing a child. Prior to the time she gave the money to prisoner, she had paid off on the summons £1 in instalments, sometimes through Jones, the river keeper. She had paid eight instalments of 3s. each. She gave the money to Webster in the back kitchen, her mistress being in an adjoining room at the time, the door between the rooms being ajar at the time. She said this before the magistrates. She had not talked the matter over since the trial before the magistrates with Mrs Owen, her mistress.—Mr Griffith here pointed out that there was not a word on the depositions about the witness's mistress being in an adjoining room when she paid the money to Webster.—The Chairman (to witness) I must wwma, you as to what you are saying as it throws grave doubts on your story. There is not one word about you having been in the back kitchen at the time you gave the money to Webster. Think carefully of what you say and be quite sure.—Witness, contin- uing, said she never asked Mrs Owen whether she heard her giving the money to prisoner. She denied having been on bad terms with the prisoner.—Re- examined by Mr Colt Williams: Jones, the river watcher, also carried out the duties of County Court bailiff. Albert Edward Jones, the assistant regis- trar at the County Court office, gave evidence as to documents, and explained the issue of the judgment summons against the last witness.—By Mr Griffith: Some of the money was paid to him personally.—Georgina Ann Owen, the landlady of the Black Boy Inn, deposed that Davies had been in her employ about three years. She remembered giving Davies 3s. in February to pay an order of the County Court. A similar sum was advanced in March.—By Mr. Griffith: She knew of these occasions on which Davies gave money to prisoner.-John Jones, county court bailiff, proved receiving money from Davies, and from her through the prisoner and Mrs. Owen. This concluded the case for the prosecution, after which Mr. Colt Williams addressed the jury, aud submitted that the case was clearly proved. Mr. Griffith, on behalf of the defence, having called the jury's attention to the discrepancies in the case, the president summed up and called the jury's attention to the fact of the woman Davies not hav- ing said anything at the magisterial hearing as to Mrs. Owen being in an adjoining room when the money was supposed to have been paid to the prisoner.—The jury returned a verdict of Not guilty," and prisoner was discharged. ALLEGED FALSE PRETENCES AT LLANFYLLIN. John Smith (on bail), horse dealer, answered to the charge of unlawfully obtaining by false pre- tences from David Jones, on the 30th January last, at the parish of Llanfyllin, one horse of the value of JE20 with intent to defraud, and for un- lawfully obtaining from the said David Jones on the 31st January, at the parish of Llansaintffraid Pool, one mare of the value of zE40 with intent to defraud. Prisoner pleaded not guilty on each of the four charges against him.—Mr Ellis Jones Griffith, M.P., prosecuted, and Mr Colt Williams defended.—It was agreed to go into the charge about the bay horse first.—David Jones said he was a farmer, living at Trewyllen. He was at the Llanfyllin fair in February last with a bay horse for sale. He there met Smith, who asked him the price of the horse, and he replied S20. Smith said he had a pedigree colt which would suit him as a breeder. He told Smith that he would sell the horse, and buy the colt when he saw it. Prisoner agreed to buy the horse, and said he would send the colt on his return to Wolverbampton the following day. They agreed upon the price of the bay horse, viz., C20, 10s to be returned to the prisoner as a gift. He then parted with the horse, and afterwards saw the prisoner off. The prisoner formerly promised to hand him the money at the station. When they were at the latter place he wrote out a note at the prisoner's dictation, in which it was mentioned that the money was to be paid on the 5th February. Prisoner did not pay him at the station, but asked him for the gift money being 10s for the bay horse and 10s for the mare. He replied that he would not until he had the money for the horse and mare. Smith then asked him for the loan of some money, and he gave him some coppers, which was all he had. He afterwards went to Wolverhampton on the 4th February, and there saw Samuel Smith and also the bay horse and mare. He went to Oswestry on the following day in older to meet the prisoner, but he did not turn up at the Wrexham Hotel as promised, but he received a telegram from the prisoner at Wolverhampton saying he had lost the train and wanted him to go down to Wolver- hampton in order to settle. Smith paid for a reply, in which he wanted prosocutor to state by what train he would arrive at Wolverhampton. To this he replied that he had been waiting at Oswestry all -day. He then returned to Llanfyllin and took out a warrant. On the 10th February he again went to Wolverhampton, and there got his bay horse and grey mare which he took home with him.—William Bailey and Estyn Powell gave evidence. The latter deposed that he was engaged at the booking office at Oswestry station. On the 31st January prisoner came to the office and wanted to book a couple of horses. The prisoner was accompanied by another man, and there was a discussion as to whether the horses should be booked in the name of Smith or Clare. The prisoner's friend said, Don't be a --fool; book them in the name of Smith."—Detective Sergeant Bates, of the Wolverhampton police, gave evidence as to tVip prisoner being r This Llanfyllin, deposed to arresting the prison er le concluded the case for the prosecution, ™te,rf Colt before Mr Ellis Jones Griffith replied, n0 Williams laid an objection that there ^eDc0 evidence to go to the jury of the false p ^g named in the indictment as regarded the p ^er colt. —The President over-ruled the objection^ taking into cousidera tion the evidence detective-sprge-int when he said that not know of the prisoner having a p1ed:r« r t}ie —Mr E.
