Deatbof Bishop Elood. Welshmen evcrywhere. will learn with regret of the death of Dr. Daniel Lewis Lloyd, late Bishop of Bangor, which took place at his residence at Llanarth, on Friday morning last, from the effects of a paralytic seizure. Dr. Lloyd bad been in in- different health for a long time, and in the spring of last year he had an attack from which lie never completely recovered. He, however, considerably lightened the weary hours of his long illness by undertaking the task of compiling a new hymn and tune book. The book contains over 700 hymns and will supply a great want in the Welsh Church. Daniel Lewis Lloyd was a native of Cardigan- shire, being the son of Mr. John Lloyd, of Fronwen, I y where he was born in 1843. His parents were of the peasant class, and the future lord bishop had in early years to be content with the meagre training obtainable at the little village school at Llanarth. Nor did he enjoy this slight advantage long, for circumstances compelled him to leave school at. an early age, and for some years, we believe, he served as a shop assistant at Aberayron and Llandovery. The prospect of a life behind the counter was by no means pleasing to the lad. He was ambitious, and the Fates being kind, he was able ere long to exchange the counter for the school desk. He entered Lampeter Grammar School, and made such solid progress that he eventually won a scholarship at Jesus College, Oxford, where he was placed in the second class by the classical moderators in 1865. He graduated B.A. (2nd class Lit. Hum.) in 1867 and proceeded to his M.A. in 1871. Having decided to enter the Church, he was ordained in 1867, by the Bishop of Bangor, his first curacy being Dolgelley, where also he had charge of the local grammar school. The rector of Dol- gelley at the time was the Rev. Evan Lewis, who subsequently became Dean of Bangor, a model parish priest, who has done excellent work in the Church in H ales, for which lie has received but a tardy recognition.—Thus rector and curate came once more—in 1890-into close relationship with one another, but the curate now as bishop and the rector Dean of Bangor. At Dolgelley Mr. Lloyd gained a thorough insight into parochial work and organization, though, owiiig to his duties in the schoolroom, he was unable to throw himself into the life of the parish as energetically as lie might have otherwise done. On assuming the head- mastership of the school, he found the institution, at a very low ebb- in fact, he had only his pupils to commence with—but in a few years' time it was brought to a pitch of efficiency and popularity it had never, probably, known before in its whole history. The fyoung headmaster's fame as organ- Ey iser and teacher spread abroad, and success after success at public examination served to keep the name of the school prominently before the public. The excellent work accomplished by the young curate at the Dolgelley Grammar School did not go unrewarded, for in 1873, when the principalship of the Friars Grammar School at Bmwor-then one of the most important public schools in North Wales became vacant the appointment was unanimously offered to him by the trustees and accepted. The Friars had long been in low water. but the appointment thereto of the Rev. D. Lewis Lloyd proved its salvation and restored it to its former prosperity, In 1878 he was offered and accepted the still higher position of head- master of Christ College. Brecon. Here again lie found abundant work at hand, for the college had only ten scholars, and the school had to be iilled. He was not to be dismayed by difficulties: the same energy that characterised his administration at Bangor produced equally brilliant results at Brecon. The twelve years he ,spent in the last named town were twelve years of hard up-hill work, but he more than accomplished his object, for under his able and judicious ad- ministration Christ College became one ol't lie fore- most high-c"ass schools in the Principality, as is evidenced y the fact that in 1890, his la year at the helm, the College gained in the examination of the Oxford and Cambridge Beard the highest number of distinctions ever attained by any Welsh School. His generosity to his pupils became proverbial. He delighted in extending material aid to poor pupils to advance, and it is said of him that he educated and maintained at his own expense several who after distinguised themselves at the Universities. Many men now occupying good positions in life have to look back upon the help so afforded them as having been instrumental jn their advancement. Bishop Lloyd was consecrated Lord Bishop of Bangor in St. Paul's Cathedral on the 24th of June, 1890, his jurisdiction extending over the Island of Anglesea, the county of Carnarvon, and portions of Montgomery and Merioneth, but for many years his predecessor in the bishopric drew £2,000 per annum from the See. The years of Dr. Lloyd's tenure of office as bishop were years of great events —the years of the tithe wars and the Disestablisb- ment campaign, but in all the stress and strain of battle the bishop, while fighting wight. and main for his Church, retained all through the good opinions and high esteem of his opponents, and established himself stronger than ever in the affections of his clergy. The masterly manner in which be dealt with the delicate state of affairs arising from the action of same of his clergy in putting forward the so-called Bangor Disestablish- scheme will long be remembe.red. As a Whig of the old school his Lordship bad nothing of the ag- gressive spirit of his brother prelate of St. Asaph, and his influence was therefore all the greater over the various parties in the diocese. The bishop was a powerful preacher both in Welsh and English, but his frequent spells of illness during his later years rendered his pulpit appearances few and far between. He devoted his energies at Bangor to the improvement of the organisation of the diocese, the growth of population in the quarry districts and at the numerous seaside resorts on the north and west coasts having rendered inadequate the provision for Church work. He established for this purpose a Diocesan Fund which met with a large measure of support, and his care for the clergy was pleasantly illustrated in the energy with which he prosecuted his efforts for the establishment of the fnnd for the augmentation of clerical incomes. His Lordship enjoyed a close intimacy with eveiy corner of his <$liocese, for he had visited every parish. The bishop was a prolific writer, and often contributed Welsh articles to the Geninen" and other Welsh magazines. His latest work was the compilation of a new church hymnal for the Welsh Church—"Emyniadur yr Eglwys yn Xghymru," and the. catholicity of his selection won for him the good opinion of all de- nominations. The new hymnal contains scores of liymns written by his Lordship himself. The funeral took place on Tuesday, the interr- ment being made at the parish churchyard, Llan- arth in the presence of a vast concourse of people from all parts of the country.
TRAETH SAITH. OPENING OF A CALVXNISTlC METHODiST CHAPEL. -On Wednesday, the 2nd inst, people could be seen from all parts of the neighbourhood making their way to the above place. The weather was fine, ana the good people of Traethsaith and district, did everything they could to make their visitors comfortable. This crowd recalls to mind another crowd that gathered here some 12 centuries ago. A tradition tells us that there were women in a ship on their way to Enlli to spend their days in solitude, but when near this place.a storm over- look them, and the small ship was nhrown on the jsands. The news spread through the district and people thronged higher from all parts. So to-day, but on a different unessage, the ancient crowd came to see "-see w.-hat happened; but this one <;ame not to sec ut. to" listen." Religion and a religious cause is n-øt. a new thing at Traethsaith. Principal John Rhys thinks that the place had •been a retreat to somt.aint in the olden times, to penrl his days in solitude, and worship God,.and that the word Saith "as nothing but a corruption .of the word"" Sant--sai,u: In the first part of- the last century the farm feause of Dyffryn Saith had been a noted place of warship in the district; but, in the time of Owen En a, Esgair EitliiR,:it was; held at his homestead. T..cy worshiped at Esgair. .about the end of the last eentury. So we see that; the religious use is notliir.g new in this pretty little glen, full of the musi-c of birds in tlx-; ;holt, ¡ .and tlie luuriuur of the m ilet Saith, or feaeth. The meetings on Wednesday were held on a "field belonging to Felin Smitt- The Maker of all things had doubtless done it, for the purpose of holding jan Association, and it was anointed hundreds of times Co the work by the old natiCd character fshdn, or as it was bo^t known' Shoni Felin Saith:' He flourished in the first part of the:1 17th century, and *jas a Bapti«tijpreacher.

Davies, Emlyn Grammar School: and W.ones. Llai)a-rt5i- ney; and the Rev. D. Dalis Davies, Benlab. Now we hope that this new religious cayKe which lias begun in the place will ever flourish as* long as the rivulet tfaith will ripple towards them1, and the waves of Ûw ocean roar on the plain of Cantre'r Gwaelod. We understand that the lah'd for erecting the chapel was given by Dr. i'cwoll, Adpar. Emlyn.

THE TITHE RENT CHARGE BILL. j WILL IT PROVE AN UNMIXED BLESSING ? ,Siii,- A conscientious man that 1-hinks, and who has a mind of his own.—I care not. to which ever political party he may belong—will not be irrevocably bound down to blindly follow his party in whatever measures they may think fit to bring forward. I am one of those men, and as a Liberal Unionist emphatically assert that the Clerical tithe bill, that has just passed through the Com- mons by the Goverment with the aid of the closure is greatly unjust to many who will be called upon to bear their share of the burden. The bill in detail is very intricate, but the main provision is to give relief to the poor tithe endowed clergy, who are very much worse off than their brethren who obtain their stipend from other endowments. Let us look for a moment at the existing state of things in the established Church. There are three different kinds of clerical endowments. Namely, money investments, glebe and tithe. Taking for an example a gross income of Three hundred pounds per annum under the money investment endow- ment, the rate deduction is only four pounds ten shillings, which leaves an untaxed stipend two hundred and ninety five pounds ten shillings. In a elebe endowment of three hundred pounds, the outgoings are a little over twenty-four pounds, which leaves a net income of two hundred and seventy pounds fifteen shillings. In a little endow- ment of three hundred pounds the outgoings are fifty-four pounds, which leaves an income of only two hundred and forty-six pounds. Under the bill the tithe clergy will be relieved of half their taxes, which is just so far as the poor clergy are con- cerned. But on the other hand there arc rich owners of a, combination of three, viz., money investments, glebe and tithe, who will benefit as well as the poor tithe endowed clergy. Now sir, almost everyone knows that this little endowment has been a bitter anomaly in the established Church for many years. There are hundreds of clergymen in that Church who are in receipt of a salary that a respectable mechanic would turn his nose up at. and these poor clergy, in many instances, have to bring up a large family as befitting their position. Position forsooth! Why, a common labourer is as rich as he as far as worldly possessions go, Turn to the other side of the picture, and you will find that there are many clergymen in receipt of six, seven, eight, nine hundred, thousand, or even more pounds per I annum. One is prone to think that the Church itself should have long ago altered this wretched state of things, but no, the Government steps in I and pass a bill of relief, and mark you, the tax is | not to come out of the imperial exchequer, but from local taxation. Granted that the tax is spread over a large area, that does not alter the fact that it is wrung, or rather should I say, robbed I from dissenters who have no sympathy with the Church as connected with the State. This is the thing which naturally pricks she Nonconformist conscience. But this bill is only another nail in the coffin of the State Church. Eighty-seven thousand pounds is the sum required for this relief tax. The Metropolis will have to pay nearly twenty thousand, Birmingham nine thousand, and other places in proportion. One can imagine what an outcry would go up throughout. the length and breadth of the land if churchmen were forced to pay for the endowment of Nonconformist denominations, and yet as matters stand, the thing would not be preposterous. Calling myself an Englishman and living in England the greater part of my life, I do not profess to know the feelings of the Welsh people on this matter, but I venture to assert that the greater majority of them are adverse to paying towards the endowment of the established Church of England. When I, as one of the rank and file, was an active worker with the Liberal party in Birmingham, which was the centre of political activity at that time, previous to the unfortunate split over the Home Rule question, the battle cry had used to be, vote as you are told and do as we say. That is all right from a party point of view, and granted that every loyal member should sink his minor crochets for the consolidation of his party; but there are times when one cannot take all the nostrums that are put before you, and the Clerical Tithes Bill is one that cannot be swallowed, even—cum grano salis- By yours faithfully, EDGE-HILL. Cliff Terrace, Aberystwyth.
—+, WANTED—A WELSH MAIL. SIR,-Kindly allow mc, a little space in your paper to make a suggestion, which, if practicable and carried out, will be a real benefit to the town. There has been a great deal of what, hitherto, has proved empty talk in regard to the earlier delivery of letters in the town, but I have not yet seen or heard of a hint as to how the earlier delivery can be brought about. We have all heard of the Irish Mail, and the Scotch Mail, but no one has ever heard of a Welsh Mail. Why not? There must be a reason somewhere. I have an idea where and what it is. More of that hereafter. Everyone that has travelled with the Irish or Scotch Mails knows that they only stop at principal towns, and that the minor towns and villages are served by an apparatus to put out, and take in the mail bags. I venture to make the assertion that if the same plan was adopted between Shrewsbury and Aberyst- wyth, quite two hours per day could be saved— arriving one hour earlier and departing one hour later. No doubt "My Lords" will say that the expense would be too great. Is it right that little Wales, more especially West Wales, should be handicapped as it is to the benefit of her big neighbour.

CIVILISING THE SOUDAN. The Soudan Government has decreed the letting of every ferry by public auction. Another decree imposes a tax on boats plying on the Nile or its tributaries. A third ordinance licences auctioneers and pedlars at jjan annual fee of 200 piastres In | Khartoum, Suakim, Berber, and Tewfikieh half I that anywhere else. A HUNGRY FOX. I The ravages of foxes in Cheshire are causing serious losses to farmers. Mr. Crewe, of The Grange Farm, Wybunbury, near Crewe, reports the loss of no fewer than 60 chickens, many of which were well bred. FIGHTING IN MEXICO. Dispatches from Mexico report further fighting between the Mexican troops and theYaqui Indians. Gen. Torres, in command, was wounded, whilst on the Indian side 60 were killed,. Up to the present the Indians have lost 143 in killed, besides a large number of wounded. The Yaquis are armed with good rifles, and right with great cunning. They have held their own in some enoounters. The revolt is spreading. LOVERS DROWNED. A rowing boat containing two sweethearts, Janet Chalmers, domestic servant, Gouroek, and a young- fellow whose identity has not yet been established but who was employed by Lever Brothers, Port Sunlight, was run down off Greenock on Monday by the Belfast, steamer Pointer, and the occupants were drowned. The Pointer endeavoured to recover the bodies, but in vain, and the incident caused a painful sensation aboard. The girl was only seventeen. Her companion was spending his holidays at Greenock. GREAT STORMS IN THE STATES. A series of devastating storms took place last week in various parts of the United States. Half a million acres were affected in the Mississippi Valley, and the crops in that area are said to have been destroyed. The town of Carrabelle, a pros- perous seaport in Florida, has been practically wiped out by the tornado. Many vessels were driven ashore and wrecked. There have been some fatalities, but the loss of life is not yet accurately known. At St Mark's in Floridia, however, where the storm were also experienced in all its severity, fifteen persons were drowned. PHILIPPHINES WAR The Press Association has received the following message through Lloyd's agent at Manila, dated Saturday :—"United States steamer "Saturnus" captured and burnt by the insurgents at San Fernando." A Renter's telegram from New York on Saturday says:-The "World" publishes the following telegram from Hong Kong:Nir. Wild- man, the American Consul, having made Hong Kong too hot. for the Filipino junta, the rebels have 1 now established their headquarters in Manila. British residents there are disgusted at the weak- > ness of the American authorities. ( ( A TRAGIC COINCIDENCE. A Llanelly correspondent states that on Thurs- day, Miss Evans, daughter of Mr. James Evans, of the Derlwyn Arms, and Mr. Edwin Williams, son of Mr. William Williams, Penygraig, died after nearly a year's illness. Both were compelled owing to ill health, to abandon their studies about twelve months ago. Miss Evans being sent back from Llandilo Intermediate School, and Mr. Williams from Cardiff University College. They arrived at Llanelly by the same train, lingered in illness at their homes, which are exactly opposite, and died within a few moments of each other. SIX CHILDREN AT A BIRTH. A record case of childbirth occurred at Bletchley, .y, Fenny Stratford, on Wednesday week, where a widow gave birth in a lodging-house to six chil- 9 z, dren. Dr Nicholson attended. They were five months children, and were all stillborn. Dr. Nicholson embalmed the bodies, and sent them to the Anatomical Museum. London. The poor woman was subsequently removed to the union infirnuiry at Fenny Stratford. RAILWAY ACCIDENT. A terrible railway accident occurred at Juvisy I railway station, near Paris, on Saturday. Two express trains were proceeding from Paris to Nantes at five minutes interval, when through some defect in the signalling the second train crashed into the first, doing an immense amount of damage, Seventeen persons were kiiled on the spot, and seventy-three were injured. Several of the injured were terribly hurt. THE TRANSVAAL. President Kruger has advised Sir Alfred Milner, in reference to the despatch of the Imperial I Government, that lie is willing to accept any friendly suggestion likely to lead to the settlement of the present situation. The burgher in the country are not desirous of trouble with Great Britain, and are willing to agree to a conference. A majority of the dynamite commission are in favour of allowing free importation of dynamite under permit, with a duty of iEl per case. The reported resignation of General Joubert is denied as absolutely without foundation. BRAVEST DEED OF THE YEAR. At. Cookstown, on Thursday, Francis O'Neill, miner, Coal Island, Tyrono County, was presented by Lord Charlemont, on behalf of the Royal Humane Society, with the Stanhope gold medal and certificate, for the greatest act of bravery per- formed in the United Kingdom during the year. On the occasion of an explosion in Annaghe Coal Mine several months ago, when four men were killed, O'Neill, although almost overcome by the effects of afterdamp, rescued two comrades, descending four times into the pit. For a con- siderable time afterwards his own life was de- spaired of as a result, and even yet he has not quite recovered. The Duke of York, in asking Lord Charlemont to make the presentation, expressed the wish that it should be made as public as possible. O'Neill at the same time was presented with a cheque for £ 224, publicly subscribed, £80 coming from London. Major Torrens, Coleraine, is the only other Irishman to whom the Stanhope medal has been presented. HEAVY THUNDELSTORMS. LOSS OF LIFE. A heavy thunderstorm passed over Ramsgate on Saturday night. A house in Belle Vue Road was badly damaged, and a man named Moody, one of the crew of a fishing vessel, was srruck by lightning whilst on the watch and instantly killed. John Morris, a skilled labourer at Pembroke Dockyard, was struck by lightning early on Satur- day morning whilst sheltering from the rain in a shed on the way from his home at Llangwm, and was killed on the spot. Another man named Henry Lewes, who was with him at the time, was severely injured, and had to be carried home. A young man cycling by at the time was also struck on the leg but not injured. Morris leaves a widow and five children.
