TREFEIRIG. BOARD SCHOOL.—On Saturday evening a highly successful concert was given in the above school by the school children and a number of local friends. Mr David Mason. Salem, ably occupied the chair, while the duties of conductor of the meeting were ably carried out by the Rev. H. Evans, Penrhyncocb. During the interval the school children performed a dramatic sketch in character, entitled The Washing Day so well that they met with rounds of applause. The children had been trained for the occasion by the master, Mr W. Hamer, and Miss Hamer-Evans. The singing throughout was highly meritorious, and the local friends who so willingly assisted are deserving of the best thanks. At the close of the concert nearly ninety prizes were dis- tributed by the chairman of the Board, (Mr J. Richards) and the Hev. H. Evans, for the progress and good attendance, and addresses were delivered urging upon the parents the importance of sending their children to school regularlv.

YR WYTHNOS. Er ossoi gwasanaeth gorfodol yn y fyddin y mae y Cadfridog Buller yn argymell y Prydeiniaid i Toddi pob cynorthwy i weddwon ac amddifaid ein milwyr. Rhodder sicrwydd i'r bobl y bydd i'r wlad ofalu am eu teuluoedd, ac ni fydd byth brinder milwyr yn ein byddinoedd, medd efe. Gan ofni y bydd i dreth gael ei rhoddi ar siwgr, v miloedd o dunelli yn fwy nae arferol, o hono yn cael ei allforio o'r Cyfandir i'r wlad hon. Mae prif ystorfevdd y portblacllloedd yn orlawn o'r nwydd hwn eisoes. Am ryw resymau, nad ydynt eto wedi eu gwneyd yn hyspys, y mae awdurdodau y Swyddfa Ryfel wedi penderfynu peidio prynu rbagor o gig eidion o wledydd tramor i'n milwyr. Dywedir y bydd hyn yn ergyd go drom i fasnachwyr America, gan fod cymaint o hono yn cael ei allforio oddiyno. Nid oes un sail i'r dyb fod y Llywodraeth yn cymeryd y cwrs hwn i neilldno America am fod cryn gydym- deimlad a'r Boeriaid wedi ei amlygu yno. Cwynion parhaus o'r Iwerddon, a rhanau eraill o'r deyrnas hon am ragor o gefnogaeth fasna-chol sydd wrth wraidd y cyfnewidiad, yr hwn a ddaw i rym ddechreu Mehefin nesaf. Mae newydd wedi dod i law Jod brwydr ffyrnig wedi cymeryd lie yn Arabia .rhwng Ilwytnau gelyniaethol. Dywedir fod pum' mil o ddynion wedi eu lladd mewn brwydr. Y mae Mr. Clement Edwards wedi cydsynio i ddod allan fel ymgeisydd Rhyddfrydol dros Fwr- deisdrefi sir Ddinbych eto yr etholiad nesaf. Wrth anerch cyfarfod yn Dublin, nos Wener, cy- feiriodd Mr John Dillon at sefyllfa'x blaid Genedl- aethol Wyddelig yn y Senedd, a dywedai mai'r nesaf pethi drwbl De Wet a Botha oedd yn poenir Llywodraeth oedd, beth ar y ddaear i'w wneyd a'r Gwyddelod. Dywedai Mr Dillon fod pedwar ugain o Genedlgarwyr, yn glynu'n dyn wrtii eu gilydd, yn anwrthwynebadwy, ac os cefnogid liwy yn briodol gan y genedl Wyddelig, hwy eniilent y peth a fynent Anfonwyd y penderfyniad basiwyd -gan chwarel- wyr y Penrhyn ddydd Llun y Pasg gan y cadeirydd i Arglwydd Penrhyn. Nos Iau derbyniwyd atebiad yn cydnabod derbyniad y llythyr yn unig. Nos Sadwrn mewn pentref yn Swydd Essex eaed plentyn 12 oed wedi crogi ei bun. Dywedid ei fod wedi darllen Hawer yn dcliweddar ynghySch crogi. Cynhaliwyd cyfarfod mawr, anarferol o frwd- frydig, yn Dover yr wythnos ddiweddaf er pasio penderfyniad yn protestio yn erbyn gwaith rhai lerigwyr eglwys Loegr yn yr ardal hono yc coleddn ac ymarfer arferion dcfodol ac anghyfreithlon yn eu gwasanaeth eglwysig. Cynhyrfiwydy eynulliad mawr pan ddadlenwyd gwaitb nn offeiriad yn gwaeyd defnydd o'r gyffes-gell, ac yn gofyn cwestiynau difoes i ferched ieuaingc. Mae y Due o Cornwall a'i briod ar eu hymdaith rwy'r byd wedi galw yn Ceylon, lie y rhoddwyd iddynt groesaw rhwysgfawr digyffelyb. I C, Dywed lieges o Paris fod rhywun wedi ceisio lladd Mr Krugcr drwy ei drywanu yn ei gefn a chyllell, tra 'roedd efe yn myn'd allan o'r ty. Mae llong fawr perthynol i Bryste o'r enw Exeter City newydd laiiio yn New York ar ol mordaith ofnadwy o arw o ddau ddiwrnod ar bymtheg. Bu y llong am bedwar diwrnod yn orchuddiedig mewn ystorm enbydus o eira, ac nis gellid gweled dim hyd yn od ar y bwrdd gan y caddug. Ar ganol nos, tua'r seithfed diwrnod, i'r mor o° Abertawe, gwelodd y dwylaw weledigaeth a'i tarawodd ag arswyd. Chwythai y gwynt yn gynddeiriog, ac yn sydyn gwelid yr hwyliau a'r 3rhaffau yn oleuedig gan dan rhyfedd a adwaenirfel "tan Sant Elmo." Yroedd y tan ar ffurf crwn a tua maint pelen ddafedd, ac yr oedd ugeiniau o honynt ar byd rhcffynan y Hong. Deuent i'rgolwg 10, r naill eiliad i'r llall am amser maith, ac yr oedd u goleuni mor danbaid fel y disgleiriai yn llachar ar y llestr ac ar y mor. Ymgnddiai y morwyr gan arswyd a gwrthodentaros ar y bwrdd. I ychwanegu eu dycbryn, rhuai y corwynt gan wneyd swn an- tiaearol; ac mhen enyd cyn cilio o'r goleuni bu ffrwydriad ddychrynllyd uwch ben, yr hwn a dar- awodd amryw o'r dynion i'r llawr. Coilwyd un lIwrwr yn ystod y nos, a bernir iddo golli eu bwyll a neidio i'r dwr. Dyxedir mai tywyll iawn ydyw rhagolygan nias- nachol Germani ar hyn o bryd. Cyrhaeddcdd y General Booth y 72fed mlwydd <5 i oedran yr wythnos ddiweddaf. Bn priodas hynod yn Portland yn yr Unol Dal- aetban y dvdd o'r blaen pryd yr unwyd merch o'r enw Lucy Haven, 28ain, oed ond yn pwyso tua 400 pwys, a Dr. Deeter. yr hwn sydd 76 oed ac heb dori ei wallt nac eillio ers 50 mlynedd. Priodwyd hwynt yn y Chwareudy, yr hwn oedd yn orlawn, a chodid tal am fyned i mewn, yr elw yn myned at anrheg i'r briodasferch. Dywedir fod gwythien o aur wedi ei davganfod yn Leith, Vsgotlaud. Lladdwyd cenfaint o'r bucbdanas brenbinol y dydd o'r blaen-27 mewn nifer. Yr acbos o hyn ydoedd nad ywy Brenin yn bwriadu cadw helgwn y danas mwyach, ac mae'r Llywodraeth wedi attal yr arian arferant ganiatau i'r Pen Coronog tuag at gad\v y bythenaid. LLADRATA AUK. Cvrhaeddodd newvddion i Paris, brydnawn Mawrth, o Cherbourg, i'r perwyl y dargant'uwyd pan gyrhaeddodd yr agerlong Kaiser Wilhelm der ■Grosse," yno o New York, fod tri bar o aur, gwerth iCl3 500 ar goll. Aed ati i chwilio holl gelfi y leithwvr vn fanwl gan gwmni y Tolldy, ond heb gael hyd i rldim o honynt. a gwnaed ymchwiliad eyffelvb pan gyrhaeddodd y teithwvr Paris, ond in ddaeth dim ïr golwg. Ond boreu Sadwrn, wlh r holl lielynt, cafwyd hwynt ar y llong. Ar ol y for- daith. archwilvwyd a glanhywyd y Hong Yn flrwyadl. Golchai steward o'r enw Mayers y dec o flaen y salvvn, a dododd ei law tu ol i biler, a chyfl- yrddodd a rhywbeth, ac wedi chwilio, canfu mai yr aur colledig ydoedd. Hysbysodd y cadben rhag- hlaen. Yr oedd y lleidr wedi symud planciau, ac wedi dodi ei yspail yno yn ofalus. Dywedir fod y .stewan1 yn ddyn gonest, ac nid oes unrhyw amheu- aeth yn clisgyn arwo cf. PiYXC YK IAITH. CONDEMNIO'R PIIIF POSTFEISTR. Yn ng-hyfarforl Cynghor Dinesig Colwyn Bay ddvdd lau, darllenwyd llythyr oddiwrth y Prif Bostfeistr mewn ateb i lythyr a yrasai .r cynghor ato yn gofyn iddo gadw mewn cof wrth benodi postfeistr newydd i'r dref y dylid cael dyn fedrai Oymraeg a Saesneg. Dywedai'r Prif Bostfeistr Had oedd aftgen gwybod Cymraeg ar Bostfcistr Colwyn Bay, yn gyuiaint ag mai ychydig iawn oedd maint y rhau wledig o'r dosbarth, ac mai Mr W. Milnes, gwr o Wakefield a benodid,—Tystiodd Mr John Roberes yn gryf yn erbyn hyn. Yr oedd tair rlian o bedair o drigolion y dosbarth yn Gymry, a t)yddai raid i'r postfeistr fyned a chyfieithydd gydag ef pan elai i ymweled a rhai o'r is-bostfeistr- iaid, gan na fedrent Saesneg. Pryd y cydnabyddid fod gan bobl Cymru hawl i drin eu busness yn eu hiaith eu hunain ?-Siara(io(ld Mr Thomas Parry i'r un perwyl.—Dyvvedodd Mr Byrne fod Cymry yn dal swyddi yn Lloegr, ac y dylsid gadael i Saeson ddal swyddi yn Nghymrn.—Gofynodd Mr Thomas Parry a gawsai Cymry swyddi yn Lloegr petuiseob heb fedrn Saesneg.-Dywedould Mr John Roberts nad oeddynt hwy yn erbyn i Saeson gael swyddi yn Ngbymru os medrent Gymraeg.—Cynygiodd Dr Brooks benderfymad i'r perwyl fod y cynghor yn cwbl anghymeradwyo'r hyn addywedaiac a wnaeth y Prif Postfeistr.—Cefnogodd Mr William Davies, adywedodd fod y Saeson yn meddwl mai gwehyn- wyr dwfr a chymmynwyr coed iddynt hwy oedd y Cymry. Yr oedd yn llawn bryd i'r Cymry fynu eu bawliau.-Apeliodd Mr Byrne at y Cynghor i beidio pasio'r penderfyniad, gan na wnai les. yn y byd. Nis gellid dadwneyd gwaith y Prif Postfeistr. Cynghorai efe y Cymry i gydnabod polisi'r drws agored, yn gymaint a bod cynifer o Gymry yn y swyddi ucbaf yn nhrefi Lloegr. Dywedodd Mr T. Parry nad oedd siawns i Gymry yn Lloegr oni fedrent Saesneg, a dywedodd Mr William Davies fod ganddynt hwy gymaint o feddwl o Sais a fedrai Gymraeg ag oedd ganddynt o Gymro.-Cariwyd penderfyniad Dr Brooks heb fod namyn Mr Byrne i'w erbyn.

Hysbysa neges o Cape Town fod ffermwyr o ganol y wlad yn sicr- hau fod 90 o'r Boeriaid wedi eu lladd yn yr ysgarmes drliwedôaf yn Jansenville. Gadawodd colofn o filwyr Talaethol Rosmead i ymHd y Cadfridog Kritzinger. Caed hysbysrwydd o Cape Town i'r perwyi fod y Cadfridog Botha wedi ail agor ymdrafodaeth am heddweh. Dvwedid fod Botha, yn ystod ei gynnad- leddau ddiweddar a'r Cacifridog De Wet a'r cyn- Arlywydd Sfeyn ger Heilbron, wedi cael allan fod De Wet wedi colii ei synvyrau ac nad oedd, ar a.degau, yn gyfrifol am ei weithrediadau. Cafodd allan, hefvd, fod nifer y rhai oedd yn dilyn De Wet yn lleihau, a bod ei ddylanwad yn llai. Pan sylweddolodc1 for parhad yr ymgyrch yn gorphwys arno ef ei hnn, penderfynodd y Cadfridog Botha, meddir, ail agor ymdrafodaethau, a dywed y gohcbydd, fod y rheiny yn awr yn myn'd yn mlaen. Mewn neges ddiweddaracb, ychwaneg-a y gobebydd fod y Cadfridog Botha yn barod i ymdrafod am heddwch ar ran yr oil o'r corphlnoedd Bocrai-id.

RHYFEL YN CHINA. Adroddir ddarfod i Mr Rockhill., Gweinidog yr Unol Dalaetbau yn Pekin, hysbysu Swyddta y Llywodraetb, yn Washington, fod y Llywodraeth Prydeinig a Japanaidd yn cefnogi ymdrechion yr Unol Dalaethan i ostwng swm yr iawn i ddau gant o filiynau o ddoleri, ond fod Germani, Ffrainc, Rwsia, Austria, ac Itali, yn gwrthwynebu hyny; ac nad ydyw y rhagolygon am gydwelediad yn dda ar hyn o bryd.

Y mae'r Cadfridog Ting wedi codi byddin o un fil ar ddeg o wyr dysgyb- ledig, sy'n bygwth y llys yn Si-Ngan-Fu. Mae gan yr Ymherawdwr tua'r un nifer o wyr, ond nid ynt mor ddisgybledig a'r gwrthryfelwyr, ac nid oes y ychsvaith gystal arfan ganddynt. Edrydd telegram o Pekin y cyfrifir fod yr iawn y mae'r Gwledydd yn ei hawlio oddiar China yn drigain miliwn o bunau. Yn Shangbai, ymae teimlad cryf o blaid rhoi helynt Manchuria i weinidogion y Gwledydd yn Pekin i'w setlo. t

4BERAYRON. OBITUARY.—News reached Aberayron on Satur- day of the sad and unexpected death, at Singapore, of Mr John Jenkins, the only son of Mr Lewis Jenkins, North-road. He had been residing at Singapore for many years, holding an important scholastic post there. He was buried at Singapore r on the 20th March, being 38 years of age. Aw AHD.-A short time ago the Editor of the Councillor and Guardian offered two prizes to workhouse masters who bad under their charge the largest number of inmates who had lived in the reigns of George Ill., George IV., William IV., Victoria, and Edward VII., and also to the Masters who had the largest proportion of inmates who bad lived under the above sovereigns. The latter prize was secured by Mr Griffith Evans, the master of this Workhouse, who has now received a beautiful life-like picture of King Edward VII. and his Consort. Three women and four men have also been presented with a ^lb. of tea and |lb. of tobacco each respectively. PENNANT EISTEDDFOD.—At Pennant Eistedcl- fod Aberayron took away all prizes they went in for. The chief choral "Dyddiau dyn sydd fel Glaswelltyn" was carried away with honours. A party of eight, conducted by Mr J. D. Jenkins, secured the prize for singing Aberystwyth." Miss Elizabeth Davies, Castle Green, for the soprano solo, and Mr David Jones, Victoria, Inn, for the baritone sob. THE RAILWAY STOPBLOCK.—A correspondent in last week's issue has recalled the fact that the present crisis in connection with the proposed extension of the light railway from Aberystwyth to Aberayron is due in no small measure to the short-sighted policy of a certain class of people who are ever more anxious to lead than to do. They are like stormy petrels, never at home but on the crest of the wave—of every public movement that offers any platform for an exhibition of personal pride and vanity. Let the ratepayers carefully analyse the cause of the present difficulties and what will they find? At the enquiry held at Aberystwyth on April 4th, 1898, Mr J. M. Howell said he thought that a less period than five years should be allowed for carrying out the scheme, as, if the present com- pany did not do the work in that period, it might prevent some other company doing it. Sir James Szlumper (than whom no one is better qualified to speak on railway matters) then pointed out in reply that three years might be put in, but thought it desirable to have five years. Ultimately, although not at that meeting, it was agreed to insert, three instead of five years in the scheme. Now the point is: What have those people who were so anxious to arrogate all credit to themselves for getting the period shortened, what have those people done towards getting the railway within the time they then pleaded for? Those who know them best may answer that they have had their reward, namely, to be seen of people as the men of light and leading—that little niche of passing notoriety (it cannot be called fame) is their haven—give I them but that and they sink into rest and undergo another period of "Jdolche far niente." But mean- while the town suffers, and the railway is as far off as ever.
1- LAMPETER. S. D. C. SCHOOL—The St. David's College School broke up for its Easter holidays on Monday after- noon last for a period of two weeks. OBITUARY.—The death took place on Monday morning last, at his residence. Pant Farm, of Joseph Jones. late of the Lock and Key Inn, Ram, ot the age of thirty-five years. The deceased was held in high esteem by all who came in contact with him. He leaves a wife and five young chil- dren to mourn their loss, with whom much sym- pathy is felt.. REHEARSAL.—-Cynhaliwyd rehearsal yn nghapei y Methodistiaid nos Fereher diweddaf. Daeth lluaws o aelodau eglwysi y cylchcedd ynghyd, a chafwyd canu ardderchog. Arvveiniwyd gan Mr D. Jenkins, Mus. Bac., Aberystwyth. CHAMBER OF COMMERCK-A meeting of the Lampeter Chamber of Commerce was convened for Wednesday night of last week. but there be- ing no quorum no meeting was held. This is the second occasion on which too few members have attended to form even a .quorum.Why not have a post mortem examination., for there cannot possibly b. anv life in this body. PREACHING.—On Thursday evening last, at Soar Independent Chapel, the Rev J. Davies, Cadle, Swansea, preached.an eloquent sermon to a large congregation. A FISHING RECORD -One day last week. Alder- man S. Davies-Jones, Peterwell, and Mr Evan Inglis Davies, caught fifteen pounds of trout between them in the Tivy. This is the local record for the season so far. EXPORTATION.—Among the many articles now being exported from this town are raw sticks. Last week a few tons of these sticks were sent away to the large English towns, to be used for walking and umbrella sticks, by a company of hawkers. These sticks were collected from the mountain woodlands in the locality. THE CREAMERY.—Mr S. Rotbwell, who has now acted as manager to the butter factory for nearly two years, has been appointed secretary to an ex- tensive laundry in Daleming, Surrey. Mr Thomas, his assistant, has been appointed manager, and Mr Ball of the Midland Dairy Institute, has been appointed assistant to Mr Thomas. QUA RTFRLY.NIEETiNGs.-The quarterly meetings in connection with the Unitarian denomination were held at Caeronen Chapel, Cellan, on Wednes- day evening and Thursday last. The preachers were the Revs W. James, Llandyssil, J. Davies, Allty- blacca; Rees Jones, Aberdare; Gwilym Evans, Oxford T. Jenkins, Pontardawe; and E. 0. Jenkins, Manchester. The services, which were very largely attended were conducted by the Rev R. C. Jones. TELEGRAPHIC DELAY.—Last week a telegram was sent to Mr Rothwell. manager of the Creamery by a gentleman from Aberystwyth, asking him to meet the first morning train. The telegram, it transpires, was handed in at Aberystwyth Post Office before the train was due out from that station, but was not delivered to Mr Rothweli until some time after the train had reached Lampeter. Mr Rothweli immediately proceeded to the station, and there found the gentleman in the waiting room having been kept there for nearly fifteen minutes. DHITNK AND DISORDERLY.—Jane Robinson, a pedlar, hailing from Bangor, had the misfortune of being brought up before the Mayor (Prof. H. Walker) on Saturday last and charged with being drunk and disorderly on the highway on the previous night. P.C. Williams proved seeing the defendant drunk and disorderly about a quarter to nine on the previous evening, in consequence of which she was locked up. She was fined 2s 6d including costs, in default seven days imprison- ment. Defendant, however, could not produce enough money, and asked for a few days to find them. The Mayor gave her two days grace to fid the redeeming coin. APPOINTMENT. Mr W. Jones Parry, Caxton Hail, and eldest son of Mr Parry, of the Llan," has been appointed out of a large number of appli- cants, goods clerk on the Great Western Railway at Maesteg station. Mr Parry was popular with his comrades in the town. He was secretary of the Church Welsh Sunday School, where his services will be much missed. Prior to his departure Mr Parry was, on Saturday evening last, made the recipient of a handsome writing desk which was I given him by his fellow-workers at the Caxton I Hall. THE PROPOSED ASSEMBLY ROOM. There is now every reason to believe that the town of Lam- peter \\l, within a couple of years, be furnished with a much needed assembly room. Professor Walker, the mayor, has taken the matter in hand in earnest, and has so far left no stone unturned. He has now been successful in getting Mr David Lloyd to renew his offer of a site on the Bryn Road, on certain conditions, which, it is thought, will meet the wishes of the inhabi- tants generally. During the past few days the Mayor has issued a circular letter with the view of organizing support. The Mayor states in his appeal:— The value of the site, calculated so as merely to recoup Mr Lloyd for his outlay, is no less than £ 94; its present market value is certainly much more than £100, The only con- dition attached to the gift is, that within twelve months there shail be raised by voluntary sub- scription at least £ 500. Mr Lloyd asks no more than that the whole body of the inhabitants and friends of Lampeter shall raise a sum just five times ras great as that which he individually is willing to contribute. There can be no doubt that, if Lampeter is in earnest, P,500 can be and will be collected. A sum much larger than the very moderate minimum stipulated for ought to be aimed at. What will be done must depend to some extent on the amount of money raised. The Town Council hope that the sum will be sufficient to enable them, in the first place, to build a substantial Assembly Room capable of s ating comfortably about 600 persons, and there- fore of holding at need from 800 to 900. They like- wise hope, in the second place, that they will be able to include within the same Institution, a billiard room, a library, and reading room, and other club rooms. In short, their ambition is to make the Institution not merely a Hall for large gatherings, but also a club, non-political, unsec- tarian, open on the same terms to all the in- habitants uf the Borough without distinction. They are convinced that such an Institution would be far more than a mere place of amusement, and in memory of the great Queen, whose first, interest was always the moral and social welfare of her people, they propose to call it the Queeu Victoria Memorial Institution." It need hardly be said that the new Hall would in no sense come into corn- petition with or supersede the existing town hail- To accomplish all the purposes thus briefly sketched will require much more than £ 500. A building such as is contemplated, would, with its iittines, I cost at least £ 1500 and more, probably £2000. To ensure success in their effort to raise the necessary funds, the Council requests that every man and woman in the Borough shall resolve to give some- tning towards the proposed Institution, so that all, rich and poor, may feel when it is built that they have part and lot in it. The Council are of opinion that if the response to this appeal (addressed only to inhabitants of the Borough) be liberal,'there will be much more hope of success in the future appeal which they propor-e to make to all those who, t hough not residents, may reasonably be supposed to be interested in the welfare of Lamoeter.—Thev would therefore ask the burgesses to reflect that" on the liberality of their contributions deperds not only the question whether the site so generously offered shall or shall not be secured for the town but also the question whetber they shall or shall not secure the support of the many who help those that help themselves." FOOTBALL.—The return match between Llan- dilo and the Town team was played on the school field on Saturday afternoon last. The ground was most unfavourable for good play, rain having fallen heavily in the morning. Play did not commence till five o'clock, the visiting team arriving in town late. The teams lined out as followsLlandilo Back, Hopkins three quarter backs, N. L. James, Fuller, D. O. Jones, and Lewis; half-backs, Jones and Bowen forwards, C. Thomas (capt.), W. Jones, Evans, J. Williams, Tal Bowen. D. T. Wil- liams, D. Bowen, A. N. Other. Lampeter—Back, Austin Davies; three quarter backs, J. J. Davies, Strand Jones, W. Z. Jones, and Phil. Jones half- backs, Wright, Davies and W.Griffiths; forwards, Anthony, Inglis Davies, D. R. Evans, Close. D. J. Davies, Owen, J. F. A. Thomas, and H. A. Thomas. Referee—Mr J. S. Jones. Llandilo kicked off and played against a stormy wind. Play settled down in mid-field for a considerable time. Strand Jones then got a long pass away to Wright Davies, and the latter, making a splendid run through several of his opponents, scored the first point for Lampeter. The point was not negotiated. Play being resumed, a:few scrimmages occurred in mid-field, and play was for some time of a give and take nature. Fuller was responsible for removing play, and madeagood run but the tackling of Austin was too good for him. The visiting forwards now pressed and made things I dangerous for the home side. Austin, however, got the ball, and with a strong kick sent the ball into touch in the visitors' 25. After some hard pressing, Strand passed on to Bill Jones, but the latter was brought to grass within a few yards of the line. Lampeter were on the aggressive but a 19 short time, and then the visiting forwards, wiih some strong rushes, removed the play to the other end of the field. Here, William Evans picked up. and got over with a try. This also was uncon- verted. Uninteresting play followed and a good deal of exchange of kicking was indulged in. From theline Wright Davies sent in a beautiful pass to Bill Jones, and the latter, having a clear field, raced in and scored the second try for Lampeter. A good attempt was made to convert, but the ball fell short of the mark. When half-time arrived the score read-Lam peter, two tries, one minor; Llandilo, one try. Anthony resumed operations for the home team and the forwards c jmmenced aggressive tactics. Llandilo, however, gradually drove them buck, and the game was characterised by some unnecessary vigour. The home front rank again broke away with a grand dribble, headed by Owen Close and Davies. A series of penalties against Lampeter relieved the situation, and this enabled Llandilo to become dangerous. Several shots were made at goal, bnt they were all abortive. From a scrimmage, Griffiths, one of the home half-backs, sent a tine pass to Bill Davies. The latter made tracks for theline, but when on the verge of scoring was checked by Hopkins. The visiting team quickly changed the venue of p.ay, and after some hard dribbling, James succeeded in scoring a try, which was not converted. The whistle soon after- wards sounden, the final score being G T M Lampeter 0 2 1 Llandilo 0 2 0 The game on the whole was an interesting one. Every member of the home team played a good game and the result was very creditable to Lam- peter. When the teams met before Lampeter sustained a crushing defeat, and many expected to see Llandilo repeat their performance. The home threequarters played splendidly, especially Strand Jones and Billo Jones, who were strong in defence and attack. The half-backs played well and Wright Davies's passing gained him well deserved applause. Owen, Davies, Close, and Inglis Davies were the most prominent of the forwards, and their irresis- tible rushes frequently changed the complexion of the game. Austin played a grand game at back and his fielding was a credit to the team. COUNTY COURT.—WEDNESDAY APRIL 10TH. Before His Honour Judge Bishop. APPLICATION. Mr. A. J. Hughes applied for an adjournment of a certain case owing to his not being able to take the evidence of an important witness (who could not attend) by commission. Mr Davies (Smith, Davies & Co.) who was also interested in the case supported the application. Juries having been summoned to try the case, His Honour pointed eut that it was rather bard that juries should be sum- moned to attend there and then find that they were not wanted after all. That should be considered by the parties. Mr Hughes agreed and said that there was another jury case so that the jury would be required after all.—His Honour: But separate juries are not often summoned. You ought to give notice immediately to the Registrar and not bring the jury here.—Mr Davies said that as soon as they knew that the commission could not take place they gave notice to the Registrar.—Mr Howell (the Registrar) said be had only summoned oneSuror and the other case was coming on.—His Honour stated that this kind of thing occurred very often at Lampeter. He did not find the same difficulty arising at other places. He only wished that solicitors would give registrars notice in due time. In that case it happened that there were two jury cases. He afterwards granted the application. MORGAN V. THOMAS. David Morgan, Moeddynfach, Llanarth, sued E. C. Thomas, Cledlyn Mills, New Court for the sum of P-4 15s 9d, and there was a counterclaim of £4 17s 6d balance of an account. The dispute arose over weaving and dyeing done for the plain- tiff by the defendant. Mr Daniel Watkins, appeared for the plaintiff and Mr Thomas Thomas, Llan- dyssil for the defendant. The plaintiff's evidence showed that they had sent to the defendant a quantity of wool to be made into yarn, but the yarn was not dyed in the colour specified by them, and was also under weight. Evidence was given by the plaintiff's wife and son as to the instructions given to the defendant, and of the weight returned. For the defence witnesses were called to show that the wool necessarily lost in weight in the process of cleaning, dyeing etc. Defendant stated that his instructions were to (lye the wool in the colour be thought it would take best. It would never have taken blue well as it was too coarse. His Honour gave judgment for the defendant on the claim and counterclaim and observed that the claim was a preposterous one and that the case had been un- reasonably lenghty. SETTLEMENT OUT OF COURT. Thomas Lloyd, Penrhynrhug, Llanio-road, sued the Manchester and Milford Railway Company for damages for alleged breach of contract, owing to a truck load of pigs having been delayed on the railway. This case had been adjourned from the last court owing to a witness not being able to attend. During the interval for luncheon the case, which was to be tried by a jury, was settled out of court. Application for a jury was made by Mr Stanley G. Jones (on belalf of Smith, Davies & Co), for the plaintiff, and Mr A. J. Hughes for the defendants.
