Dtatb of Mr. John Corbett. THE news of the death of Mr JOHN CORBETT, although not unexpected, was received with profound sorrow at Towyn and Aberdovey, where his munificent gifts —especially to the cause of higher education —will remain a lasting memorial of his princely generosity. The history of his long and successfal career, which we publish elsewhere, reads like a romance, Although Mr CORBETT had but a few advantages in his early days, he won fame and fortune by his own industry, perseverance, and tenacity of purpose. His name has long been a household word throughout the country in connection with the great salt industry of Droitwich and Stoke, and the remarkable success which crowned his efforts, at those places won him the title of the Salt King." He took great interest in the development of Towyn, and the success of the County School at that place must be attributed to his timely and liberal benefactions.
ABERAYRON AFFAIRS. TIm. election of the Rev EVAN MORRIS as i chairman of the Aberayron Urban District Council has, we understand, given general satisfaction in that town. As is well-known to all who are well versed in local affairs, the appointment of Mr MoRRIS is doubly gratifying inasmuch as it is an unmis- takable expression of the fact that the spirit of good citizenship has once more successfully asserted itself and has completely foiled the intrigues of a meddlesome clique which tried to gain the ascendancy by creating discord among those whom it failed to win over by suasion. It has been discovered at last that this clique does not hesitate to resort to the shabbiest of tactics in order to gain its own unworthy ends, In the present instance it made a strenuous effort to get an outsider elected chairman. But, fortunately, this sinister move found neither favour among the townspeople nor support among the councillors, and it ended in an ignominious failure. It would, no doubt, be a much more reasonable course to fight local questions on their merits. We are, however, quite familiar with contests on political, and even on denominational lines; but the Machiavellian method which has been lately introduced at Aberayron belongs to quite a different order. In the long run, cunning and duplicity are subversive of all good government—be it local or imperial. Even if local politics be put on the lowest possible level and considered merely a game to be played at; still there should be no reason why these contests should not be played on such an honourable understanding as is done, say, in a game of hockey. If you play at hockey it will not do to hit now for and then against the one and the same party, just-as it suits one's particular whim. If you want good and fair play you must be above board, and keep sides to whatever goal you are wishful to drive. The' Council has done well to resent, in such a practical manner, the insidious attempt to over-ride the rate- payers and to insult its own intelligence. Mr MORRIS has been a faithful member of the Council from the beginning, and his unanimous election to the chair is ample proof of the esteem in which he is held by his fellow-members. Aided by the enter- prise and energy of the younger members, it is hoped that the new chairman will have a successful year of office and that some lasting good will be done for the town.
THE QUESTION OF THE HOUR AT LAMPETER. THE Proposed Queen Victoria Memorial Hall tBT PROFESSOR HUGH W ALKER, THE MAYOR.] THANKS in the first place to the labours, years, ago of the Eisteddfod Committee, and in the second place to the generous offer now of a free site by Mr DAVID LLOYD, Lampeter has once more a reasonable chance of gratifying its long-cherished ambition for a place of public assembly. On the eve of launching a practical scheme it may be useful to enquire what benefits Lampeter may reasonably hope to gain from the realisation of this ambition. In the first place it is to be observed that the scheme contemplated by the Town Council is divisible into two principal parts. If the Queen Victoria Memorial Institution is ever built, it will contain a large hall, suitable for all sorts of public gatherings. This will probably be seated for about 600, and so will be capable of holding some 800 or 900. Here. the public lectures of the future will be delivered, and here will be held concerts and theatrical entertainments. Here, too, will be space and welcome for political meetings, whatever be the party that needs the hall for such a purpose. For, built, as we hope it will be, by the con- tribution of all, it will be administered with perfectly even-handed justice in the interest of the community as a whole. It will be of no party, creed or faction. Here, also, we may hope, will take place many meetings, social rather than religious in their char- acter, which have hitherto been held in the various places of worship in the town. It is far from my intention to blame those who have allowed such meetings to be held there. On the contrary, bad I found myself situated as they have been situated, I would unhesitatingly have followed the course they have taken. But I do not doubt that all would prefer to see places of worship kept for the purpose for which they were designed. But I hope the usefulness of the hall will not be limited to the occasion of great gatherings. It will probably be possible to equip part of it as a gymnasium, the fittings being so arranged as to be movable. If so, with a proper instructor, hired from time to time, it may prove to be a very powerful agent in the physical development of the young men and—why not?—the young women of the town. And again, if Lampeter ever possesses a corps of volunteers, it may serve in winter as a drill hall. Others, I trust, will be able to suggest other ways of employing it. The policy of the Town Council, I am convinced, will be to make it in every possible way useful to the town. This, it will be admitted, is a good deal. But is this all? I hope not. I am per- sonally convinced that the second part of the scheme is at least as important to Lampeter as the first. The object of this is to provide a set of club rooms, as complete, as well equipped, and as cheerful as the money subscribed will allow. If Lampeter will adopt the by no means onerous pro- visions of the Free Libraries Act, there will be here a library and reading room. An- other portion will be open for all sorts of innocent and harmless games and amuse--i ments. I hope it will be possible to provide simple refreshments, coffee and tea, bread and butter and cakes, but, of course, no intoxicants. Some may doubt the need of this, but let the doubter examine the streets of Lampeter at night. I have no wish to draw a lurid 0 picture, for it would not be a true one. Such a person would observe nothing very dreadful, but he would observe a great deal of "loafing." And I would simply ask any man of sense and experience, whether he has ever known loafing do good to any young man or young woman. Has he not, on the contrary, known it do deadly harm to both sexes? Part of the function of the Queen Victoria Memorial Institution will be to diminish loafing, and, by consequence, the temptations which inevitably attend on loafing. I have asked men who have worked among the people of the East End of London, and in other great industrial centres, what were the great needs for the health—physical, mental, moral-of the population. Their unanimous answer may be condensed into a sentence. It is, they say, physical exercise for the body, employ- ment and amusement for the mind. Human nature is much the same everywhere, and I have not the least doubt that what is true of big] London is true also of little Lampeter. Lampeter is called upon now to determine whether the advantages I have outlined are worth striving for. Given resolution, per- severance, and the spirit of sacrifice for the common good, they are attainable. They I are as unattainable as the moon if every I faddist mounts his hobby-horse, if we all refuse to give unless everything that we wish is done, or unless everything that we think needless is left undone.

WILLIAM WATSON.—IN the "Daily News." Mr Romer Williams is gazetted'a deputy- lieutenant of the county of Merioneth. A full report of an important meeting of the Dovey and Mawddach Board of Con- servators is published in this week's issue. In the House of Commons on Monday, Mr Brodrick, replying to Mr Dillon, said the average weekly cost of the war in South Africa for the last ten weeks might be taken approximately as about a million and a half a week It is reported that the King has purchitsed Glynllifon, a Welsh mansion standing in a park about five miles from Carnarvon, on the high-road to Pwllheli. The Princess Victoria spent a short holiday at Glynllifon as the guest of Mr F. G. Wynn. Lord Roberts, it is stated, will pay a visit to his old friend and comrade-1 inarms, General Sir James Hills-Johnes, at Dolaxx- cothy, early in May. It is expected'that the Commander-in-Chief will alight at Lampeter. A meeting of members of Parliament favourable to action against the tied-house system will shortly take place. The idea is to co-operate as far as may be possible with the Licensing Law Reform League.. Aber- ystwyth is well supplied with this class of public house. Mr AHerman Duckworth, in opening, the new Liberal Club at Whitworth on Satur- day, said the new taxation proposed by the Government was tantamount to lowering the wages of the working man. Never had a Government made worse use of its power than the present one. When they came into office there was every opportunity of carrying out social reforms, but they bad gone backward; and at the same time had destroyed our good name amodg-the nations of the earth. It is highly significant of the changing temper of the nation that Mr! Merriiuan,, one of the South African delegates, ad- dressed a meeting of 1,500 persons at Birmingham last week, and a resolution demanding complete seif-government for the Boers in their internal affairs was carried ;■ with only about forty dissentients. It is equally significant that the Edinburgh Town Council have decided by 31,to'M,. to grant Mr Merriman the use of the Waverley Market Hall. At a meeting of the Cheshire Chamber of Agriculture at Crewe it was decided to join with associations specially interested! in dairy farming in asking the Board of Agriculture to approve of certain proposed standards for milk and cream. The Chamber also ap- pointed delegates to joinwitliirepresentatives of the Manchester Milk Dealers' Protection Society in invoking the aid of the Board of Trade in the movement fop improving the conditions under which railway companies carry milk. At present the companies, it is alleged repudiate responsibility for loss or delay. Great disorder marked the confirmation of the new Bishop of London, Dr Winnington- Ingram, which took place in Bow Church last week, Several persons, including the Rev R, C..Fillingham and Mr Kensit, ob- jected to the confirmation, alleging that the Bishop-elect had not been faithful to his vows in matters of ritual. The objections were all overruled by the Vicar General, Sir Parker Deane, who presided in the absence of the Archbishop of Canterbury. They were received with mingled groaning, hissing and cheering from the mass of people who filled the church, and even climbed up the pillars and on to the window-sills. The diminished majorities of the Govorn- mentin the recent divisions have helped (says the London correspondent of the Manchester Guardian ") to strengthen the impression, which is curiously prevalent on the Ministerial benches, that the duration of the present Ministry will be short, even if it is, exciting. There are strong indications that several of the leaders on the Treasury bench are growing tired of the not too grate- rul work which at present falls to their lot, and Mr. Healy's joke that the Government are riding for a fall may possibly prove to be one of those jests which might have been spoken in earnest. A somewhat unexpected and most objection- able method of manipulating sweets has just been brought to the notice of the "Lancet." It seems that sweets are made to, glitter by means of splinters of glass, so that the sweet has the appearance of consisting of sparkling crystal sugar. When the sweet is dissolved in waim water, the flakes tumble to the bottom of the fluid into a miniature heap of broken glass. The flakes present both sharp points and sharp edges, which are eminently calculated to cause an injury to, or even to perforate, the walls of the digestive canal. It is difficult to imagine a mwe powerful mechanical irritant than jags of glass, which might easily cause laceration and haemor- rhage. Sanded flugar was bad enough, but to put glass splinters in sweets is diabolical. The most lamentable fact revealed and emphazised by the figures of the recent census is that the draining of the villages and the rural districts is going on continually. It will 1)e seen by the returns we are able to give this week that the reduction which has taken place in some districts is quite alarm- ing, and that the decay of rural life is perfectly paralysing. In the rural districts of the Aberystwyth Union there has been a decrease in twenty-two parishes; and the same tale comes from the Unions of Tregaron, Machynlleth, Lampeter and Dolgelley. The towns of Aberystwyth, Lampeter, and Mach- ynlleth, show an increase. Mr H. Rider Haggard, the well-known author, has under- taken the task of trying, if possible, to solve tne great national problem of how to arrest the decay of village life and bring prosperity to British agriculture. It is Mr Rider Haggard's special mission to investigate as far as possible the causes of this decay of rural life, as to suggest, if possible, a remedy to prevent the greatest calamity that the nation has ever had to face. A remedy, he says, must be found, or the country will have sad days in store. It is a vital question for the nation, but it is one from which all statesmen and politicians seem to shrink. He is so convinced in his own mind of the seriousness of the situation that he is deter- mined to do what he can in his day and generation to try if a remedy can be found for the evil. At a meeting of the Cardiganshire Stand- 0 ing Joint Police Committee on Thursday it was decided to increase the pay of the police. At the Dolgelley Board of Guardians on Saturday, n heated discussion took place be- tween the Barmouth and Dolgelley members. A full report is given in another column. The new chairman of the Aberystwyth Board of Guardians and of the Rural District Council is Mr William Morris, Brynoweu, Borth. A long discussion took place at the Board of Guardians on Monday on the question of plurality of offices. There is growing dissatisfaction at Aber- ystwyth with the exclusiveness shown by the Mayor in the arrangements for the laying of the memorial stone of the new promenade. It would not be wrong to say that a large majority of the ratepayers, and even of the Town Councillors, feel that a golden opportunity is being forfeited by not inviting some distinguished person to perform the function. It has been suggested that the Town Council should be memorialized and asked to exert its influence n favour of a celebration worthy the event. The quarterly meeting of the North Wales Calvinistic Methodist Association was held on Tuesday at Colwyn Bay, the Rev. Griffith Ellis (Bootle) presiding. Considerable in- terest was taken in the consideration of the case of the Rev. W. O. Jones, of Liverpool. The association finally adopted a series of recommendations in favour of a full investi- gation. It was decided not to accept a petition,irifavour of Mr Jones, to confirm a committee's recommendation that Mr JoneS should not be admitted to the inquiry, and to furnish Mr Jones with a copy of the resolutions authorising the new inquiry.
CARDIGAN DISTRICT LETTER. BETURN OF THE WARRIORS. Under- the leadership of the Mayor (Mr D. Ivor Evans) the townspeople are about to organise a public reception to the officer (Capt R. W. Picton Evans) and the three Volunteers of the F (Cardigan) Co., 1st V.B. Welsh Regiment, who have been on active service in South Africa, and who will arrive by the s.s. Tagus in about a week's time. Although somewhat hastily arranged, the demonstration on their departure some i 15 months ago was very warm, and the fact that they have survived the ordeal of fire and fever must of necessity make them the local heroes of the hour. This is the time for h^tring in mind the warning words of the Commander-in-Chief as to the evils of "treating." This warning has a special significance for Cardigan, where the tempta- tion is great, and it will require wise decision of character on the men's part, in the midst of the enthusiasm to avoid those pitfalls which Lord Roberts so clearly pointed out. This is an occasion when the pulpit might make its influence really feW in a practical manner. There is to be a public luncheon on a date not yet fixed, when the warriors will be invited as guests, and the occasion will probably be one of exceptional interest to Cardigan people. At a public meeting held on Monday week, the Mayor, Town Clerk, and Mr J. La.wle/ Stokes, were appointed as a Committee- make the necessary dinner a rrangements, and 0 a further town's meeting-, was held on' Tuesday evening to draw up a programme. Cardigan people may not enjoy the dis- tinction of welcoming home any of, the- first-class heroes (or failures) of the war, but notwithstanding, they are. evidently bent- rightly or wrongly—in giving their hard- worked Volunteer "Tommies" a right royal reception. Tha Corporation have identified themselves with the movement, and a special request is to be issued to the business men of the town to grant their employees a half- holiday when the men are due to arrive. In addition, the names of all the men who volunteered for active service will be in- scribed on a Scroll of Honour to, be. fixed to the wall of the Town Hall as a permanent record of their patriotism. SAD DROWNING FATALITY. It is painful to narrate the circumstances attending the drowning of a little lad of five years, sonotMr and Mrs Henry Davies, of Heathiield Home, St Dogmells (the father an engineer now at sea). On Saturday after- noon, the little lad. with several playmates, wandered alongside the river picking flowers and unfortunately they were tempted to. climb into the trees overhanging the river A bianch bioke, and precipitated the lad, into toe water, where no assistance whatever cod be given him by his juvenile com- panics, and there was no one else at hand to help. The tide was, sweeping up the river "b at a great rate, and when the alarm brought assistance the body was lost sight of, and, in spite of the most painstaking labour of the fishermen and others in boats, from day to day, the body was not recovered until Toes- day afternoon,. The poor mother is in great distress at the affliction, awl she has Side- spread sympathy. THE QUESTION OF THE HOUR AND THE FUTORK From b .From a. mere project, more or less illusory, the rnver question has suddenly be- come a practical one. The transformation has been wrought mainly jby the generous ana apparently disinterested proposals of Dr Pritchard, of the Priory. Inspired by his financial co-operation, tho committee have revived; and elaborated their proposals, which are believed to be within the powers of the Corporation under the Harbours Act. As a committee, they cannot, of course, deal with the matter, but an influential deputation in- cludiaRg Mr C. Morgan-Richardson (who ablv acted as spokesman), Colonel Picton Evans, Dr Pritchard, Messrs W. Woodward, R. E. Jones, R. Thomas, R. Woolcock, and J. P. Bailie, op Tuesday waited upon the Council at a special meeting, and asked them to ap- point a Comrmttee to consider with them the advisability 0f improving the navigation y' Up°n the "nderstanding that the Corporation should be indemnified from any expense incurred by them. There was afujl attendance of the Council, and the Mayor, Mr D.Ivor Evans, presided. and in support of the aplication, Mr Morgan-Richardson gave a lucidsfcitement Gf what was contemplated. °I\Evan8, and Dr- Pritchard also ^poke. When the deputation retired the lemoers of the Council spoke appro vingly ot the movement, especially so, as they were not asked to, commit themselves as a Council to any outlay. Mr Arthur Clugher moved that the Mayor, the four Aldermen (Messrs Uavil Davies, G. Beynon Evans, Ivor Evans a j r"63' C-Evans)» an<* Councillor s W*itkin and T. H. Williams, together with the Town C erk, should^ form the suggested committee. Mr Benjamin James seconded, and the proposal was carried. To all appearances t is movement will res nit, tjhe creation of a free port at Cardigan, to TELEPATH,
