Opening of a Women's Club. The formal opening of the Women's Club, G walia. North-parade, which has been established under the auspices of the local branch of the British Women's Temperance Association, took place on Thursday afternoon last. The presence of the Rev Canon Hicks, M.A., Manchester, had been secured for the occasion. There was a large attendance of ladies, together with Principal T. F. Roberts, Revs T. E. Roberts, A. Wynne Thomas, T. Williams, B.A., D. R. Williams, Griffith Parry, J. E. Leah, etc. Mrs Principal Roberts, who presided, said the day was one they bad long looked forward to. Although the rooms had been open for some time, this was really the formal opening. They wished to open their doors as wide as possible, and later on they hoped to include a far larger number of members than at present. Mrs Roberts then called upon Canon Hicks to formally open the Women's Club.— Canon Hicks, who was warmly received, said a signal honour bad been done him in asking him to come there and take a principal part in this very interesting ceremony. But he accepted the invita- tion with great willingness, and that for several reasons In the first place because it was an enter- prise which bad been undertaken by the British Women and their friends, and he had always found them the reverse of what temperance workers were sometimes said to be—one-idea people. Speaking of his experience in the Temperance cause, he found them always ready to assist in any kind of enterprise which was for the bettering, for the en- lightening, and for the uplifting of their fellows. Indeed, he sometimes rather made a jest about it, and said he had found curiously enough that it was the extreme people who were most ready to undertake the most humble practical work which would tend in the direction of right, and make it more difficult for people to do wrong. Another reason why he accepted the invitation was because he was so sensible, coming from a great and crowded disttict like that of Manchester, of the need of evening homes for girls and young women such as he believed this building was intended to offer. Nothing was so grievous or painful to ) the individual as tne lonelmesss ex- perienced in a crowd, and he could imagine nothing more dangerous to yonng people who had been employed in various ways during the day, and having evenings off, had no occupation to enter- tain them. The young women of Aberystwyth had .been tbouvlit of, and here they would find, he trusted, an evening home, where they might have suitable accommodation and entertainment. He could not imagine anything more practical or more beautiful than this kind of effort. He hoped the Club would become thoroughly well-known, and be of more use than even it was at present. It had, he believed, already bad a short course of great usefulness, and bad enlisted a large number of members. With the hope that this little gather- ing might tend in that direction, he bad great pleasure in declaring the rooms to be indeed, in every sense open. (Applause.)—Mrs Ingram pro- posed, and Mrs John Evans, Broniartb, seconded, a vote of thanks to Canon Hicks for his attendance that day, and the vote was heartily accorded.— Miss Roberts, secretary of the Club, then presented Canon Hicks with a handsome silver inkstand as a memento of the occasion.—Cancm Hicks, in acknowledging, said he felt the kindness which dictated the presentation very much indeed. He accepted it not as a tribute to himself, but to that great cause of temperance reform with which be -had been closely identified, and that this was an expression of their loyal and devoted adhesion to those great principles which he in his poor degree had endeavoured always to expound and to maintain. —Mrs Roberts thanked those who had accepted the invitation to attend the meeting. and expressed regret that a larger number could not be invited owing to the limited accommodation.—Tea was afterwards partaken of.
CARDIGAN. CARDIGAN. BETHANIA BAPTIST CHAPEL.—On Wednesday of last week the fourth of the series of literaly and competitive meetings connected with the Sunday School of the above chapel was held. and attracted quite a large audience. The object of these meetings, it might be explained, is to foster in the young an appetite for art and literature, a very worthy object which, we are pleaed to be able to report, is meeting with every success. The fact is made manifestly obvious by the fresh names that continually appear on the programme. The ad- judicators were:—Music, Messrs H. H Evans, St Mary-street, and J. H. Evans; various, Messrs James James, Rhoshill, and D. B. Phillips, Briallydd. The duties of conductor were ably carried out by the Rev J. Williams, pastor The following were the competitions:—Pencil drawing (8 competitors), winner, Master L. D. V. Owen; duett (in unison) to those over 30, divided between Messrs Evan Owen and Owen Williams and Evan L. Griffiths and Daaid Jenkins; recitation for children (five competitors), Master Joseph Recs quartette (three parties competed), Mr O. Williams and party reading music at first siht (six com- petitors), Mr W. White Jones; love letter competi- tion (twenty-two competed), Miss Maud James; extempore speech, Albert Hughes; solo for children, divided between Master J. T. Williams and Miss Tully Lloyd reading a piece without punctuation marks, a local piece was prepared specially for the occasion by Mr D. B. Phillips, but the winner's name did not transpire (sixteen competed) child- rens' choir under a juvenile conductor, the winner was Katie Williams' choir. Apart from the com-* petitions several solos were tastefully rendered. ST. DOGMELLS RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL — The usual monthly meeting of the St. Dogmells Rural District Council was held at the Workhouse, St. Dogmells, on February 6th.-The Rev E. D. Evans; vice-chairman, presided. There were also present, Messrs William Williams, Thomas Colby, Jonah Evans, William Mathias, James Adams, Evan Lewis, George Biddyr, Lewis Davies, Benjamin Vaughan, John Rowe, Thomas Lewis, E. P. Jenkins, and Thomas Thomas.—The medical officer of health (Dr D. Havard) having reported a case of scarlet fever at the residence of the school master, it was unanimously resolved that the school be closed for three weeks.—A discussion arose as to the question of small pox and the non-provision of an isolation hospital should an outbreak occur in the district, and it was ultimately proposed by Mr Jonah Evans, seconded by Mr James Adams, and decided that the land, being a part of tne Eglwyswrw Common, recently purchased for the purpose of erecting an isolation hospital thereon, be enclosed, and that a concrete foundation for the reception of the build- ing be made as soon as possible, the necessary specifications to be prepared by the Sanitary In- spector, and the Clerk to advertise for tenders by that day fortnight, and that this meeting be ad- journed to that date to receive and consider the tenders.—It was decided that a committee be ap- pointed to consider and pass plans of new build- ings under the recently adopted bye-laws, such committee to consist of Messrs Lewis Davies, Thomas Colby, E. P. Jenkins, Captain Gower, and Mr Jonah Evans.—The term of office of the sanitary inspector (Mr D. B. Phillips) having expired, and such officer having applied for an increase in his salary, it was proposed by Mr Thomas Colby, and seconded by Mr Evan Lewis, that he be re-appointed sanitary inspector for a term of three years at, an annual salary of R50 with a sum of P.5 for examina- tion of plans under the bye-laws.—Mr Lewis Davies moved an amendment that such salary be £45 and Z5 for plans, making a total of £ 50.—Mr E. P. Jenkins seconded.—The amendment was declared carried. A CASE AGAINST THE LONDON, EDINBURGH, AND GLASGOW ASSURANCE CO. JUDGMENT FOR THE PLAINTIFF. A caee which had excited much local interest was heard at the Cardigan County Court on Friday last before His Honour Judge Bishop. Mrs Catherine Morris, Abercych, Manordeify, Pem- brokeshire, claimed an amount due of e24 5s from the London, Edinburgh, and Glasgow Assurance Co. under a policy of assurance on the life of one David Lewis, dated 21st November, 1899. Mr V. Meager, barrister. Swansea, instructed by Mr J. L. Stokes, solicitor, Cardigan, appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr W. J. Williams, solicitor, Cardigan, was for the Comlany. Mr Meager said that in order to shorten the case as much as possible it would be advisable to do without a jury. Judge Bishop remarked that it was rather hard to bring gentlemen to that court where they had to wait for some time and then to be informed that tbeir services were not required. He was sorry for the gentlemen in question, and greatly regret- ted that they had been summoned to appear. Mr Meager said that it had been agreed between the parties that notwithstanding the fact. that the face value was £ 24, the actual amount should be 15s less. There was no dispute of premiums paid up to date, and the \tolicy was admitted. Death occurred in October, 1901, which was also ad- mitted. The plaintiff bad consequently claimed the money due. The burden of proof was upon Mr Williams to prove why the money had not been paid. Mr W. J. Williams said that the proposal for the assurance contained several questions which were to be answered by the assured, and a certain declaration made by the proposer. The questions were put to the assured, and the proposer gave a warranty that all the questions were answered truly. It was an assurance taken out on another. One of the ques- tions related to general health, and it was answered that :health was perfect. The question relating to any illnesses from certain diseases was answered in the negative. He contended that these replies were untrue. The proposer made a statement to the effect that she had an interest in the assured. The assured bad, as a matter of fact, suffered from bronchitis for some months standing. They dis- puted the policy on the ground that the proposer had no interest in the assured. Mr Meager said that the last pointcouldbe easily cleared. It was absolutely immaterial in this case. There was a statute under George III which slated that an assurable interest was necessary, but no notice of defence had been given of it in this case. It was a statutory defence, and all statutory defences must be pleaded. Mr Williams said that he must admit that the notice had not been given, and he must also admit that be did not think it was necessary. They had not proved their assurable interest in any way. Judge Bishop—If you have a statutory defence you must plead it specially. The plaintiff's argu- ment appears to be that the company bad accepted the proposal, and accepted the money, and they must have been at that time satisfied. If they bad a statutory defence, they must give notice of it five clear days before to the registrar. Mr Williams said that he would rely on the mis- representations and concealment of facts contained on the form. Judge Bishop said that the signatures of David Lewis and Catherine Morris on the form should be proved. Mr Williams contended that if he could prove that that was the basis of the contract, and that the statements thereon were untrue, it would defeat the contract. John Davies, a former agent of the London Edinburgh and Glasgow Assurance Company: deposed—I was an agent for the said company in the year 1899. I made an assurance on the life of one David Lewis. The proposal form (produced) contains my handwriting. The business may have been transacted at the office at Cardigan. I can- not swear that I signed the name Catherine Morris on her behalf. I was an agent for the company for about twelve months. I went more by the super- intendent's instructions than by the printed instruc- tions. I executed my duties to the best of my ubility. There is a small cross to Catherine Morris' name. Sh3 could not write, so I affixed the cross. (t is quite correct to do so. Judge Bishop-Personally I should say it was wrong. (Laughter.) Witness—Very likely I wrote the name and put the cross. Judge Bishop—Not very likely, but very certain. (Renewed laughter.) Witness, continuing, said: I considered myself more an agent of the superintendent than of the company. I did not see David Lewis sign the paper. Judge Bishop-In that case there is a deliberate lie on the paper. Witness—Catherine Morris did not ask me to fill in the paper. Cross-examined by Mr Meager-The superinten- dent resided in Cardigan. I asked Mrs Morris for what we term a new case." I asked her on two i occasions. Judge Bishop—Had she an old case ? Witness—Yes, and received a claim. Eventually Catherine Morris mentioned to me the name of Lewis With her authority I wrote the name on the paper. I informed the Superintendent of the case. I had no other business with Mrs Morris, except receiving the premiums. At the time Mrs Morris signed her name Lewis was not present. I and the Superintendent had to obtain all the other information from the life proposed. She signed the blank form at my request. I handed the policy to Mrs Morris about six or seven weeks after it came down. I suppose it was kept in hand during that time by the superintendent in order that he might make necessary examinations. I cannot swear that I filled up the form. The superintendent asked me to obtain the address of Lewis, as he desired to 1 communicate with another supeiiii.,et,(it,nt in oruer i to obtain some particu- lars of the Iran Mr Williams remarked that it appeared as if all agents concerned had given information i i the other side. ) Judge Bishop-Well, I should certainly ay tlii the agents should be changed fairly often. Mr Meager-Lilte master, like man, Witness—I believe that Lewis resided in Glamor- ganshire at the time. Mr Williaiiis-And on the face of that YOU OI-,u^I the form that you had seen him that (lav ? Judge Bishop—You say that if the statements on the policy are untrue that the policy will be )" dered void. What is untrue that appears on the proposal ? It appears that Catherine Morris til nothing more than sign her name. If there is a -fraud .igainst the company, it appears to me j- is the agent who has concocted the fraud. Mr Williams submitted that the agent, acted :1" an agent to Mrs Morris, and not as an agent of th-- company. Witness-I cannot say whether Mrs Morris asked me to rill the proposal form or not. Judge Bishop—I think that your agent, has cheated the company, and you want to get out of it. Why the lady should suffer because wrong has been done I cannot see. Mr B Peregrive, Bridgend, Cardigan, said that he was formerly a superintendent of the defendant company. He was at present employed by the Prudential. He had seen the proposal form which had been put in. Witness did not fill up the form, and in his opinion the writing was that of John Davies. Catherine Morris went to witness' house "fter the death had occurred. Witness had no conversation with her concerning the proposal form or the health of David Lewis. It was the dnty of the proposed assured to sign the paper, but in the event of his not being able to write the agent could fill it, up on his behalf, or on the behalf of the pro- posers. If the agent filled up the form he would act as agent towards the proposer, and not towarns the company. Mrs Morris asked witness to do his best for her, and ^promised to reward him with money, apples, and potatoes ClausrhterV Cross-examined by Mr Meager—The form was not filled up in the office. I kept the policy in my possession for six or seven weeks after it came down, until I saw Lewis the assured. I was satisfied with his appearance, and gave the agent the form to hand over to Mrs Morris. I saw by the proposal form that the agent had certified that he had seen Lewis, which was untrue, because the man was away in Glamorganshire. Witness retained the form in order to shield the agent. Mr Meager-What was he going to give you. apples, beans, or what ? (Laughter). Judge Bishop—Oh yes, did you get the apples 1 (Renewed laughter). Catherine Morris, wife of William Morris, shoe- maker, and the plaintiff in the case, stated that she did not remember placing her raark to the pro- posal form. Witness had also assured one of her daughters She did not fill up any proposal form. She could not write. She did not authorise the agent to answer certain questions for her. She might have made the cross but she did not recollect doing so. Witness was a first, cousin to Lewis' mother. David Lewis' health befne going to Glamorganshire was good, but be often suffered from bronchitis. It was the duty of the agent to find out the condition of Lewis. I Judge Bishop at this point drew attention to the fact that the form was filled up in blue pencil, but the cross was made with an ordinary lead pencil. Witness continuing said she could read Welsh. She may have placed her signature to the claim paper, but if so some one haci altered the two r's." She did not tell the agent that Lewis was in the habit of suffering from bronchitis. Mr Williams contended that witness was liable for the actions of the agent, and that he was not an agent of the company at the time. Judge Bishop said that ene question was Did the proposer make any false replies. He took it that the replies were made by the agent at a subse- quent time, and it could not have been by her authority. She was an ignorant person and relied upon the agent. His Honour decided upon the facts, and he was of the opinion that the woman had made no false statement which would render the policy void. He could not say that he had much sympathy with the company. If they employed agents with no character they must expect to be let in. Judgment would be given for the plaintiff for the amount claimed—viz., jS23 10s. GRAND BALL AT CARDIGAN. 1 The Mayor of Cardigan (Mr Arthur Clougher) gave a grand ball in the Guildhall, Cardigan, on Tuesday evening last. The affair proved to be a i pronounced success, and every thanks are due to the genial Mayor of Cardigan for his great gener- j osity in providing such an enjoyable evening to many of the inhabitants of the ancient borough and neighbourhood. It is needless to state here that Mr Clougher is deservedly popular in the town, and is always ready to lend a hand or give his ser- vices to any deserving object. Like all gentlemen who occupy a similar position, Mr Clougher can be said to have a very busy time in front of him dtir- ing his term of office. He intends to celebrate the Coronation of King Edward VII. in a right loyal fashion, and it is safe to predict, apart from the great historical event, that the day will be'long re- membered in Cardigan by those who are spared to see it. The large hall had been very tastefully decorated for the occasion with flags, bunting, evergreens, etc., by a crowd of willing helpers, and presented a charming appearance. Some very pretty dresses were worn, which as usual reflected every credit upon the delicate and wonderfully mysterious taste of the ladies. But it was ever thus, and on one more occasion thanks must be given to the "gentler sex" for providing in such great measure towards the blaze of brilliancy of, in this instance, a twentieth century ball-room. The music was supplied by Messrs Jones's string band, Carmarthen, and gave every satisfaction. Excellent light refreshments were provided, and the stewards were Mr J. Daniel, High-street, and Mr J, L. Stokes, solicitor. Invitations were sent out to the following:—Alderman Ivor Evans, Pen- rallt-Cadwgan, Alderman Ceredig Evans, Alderman B James and Mrs and Miss James, Alderman J C Roberts and Mrs and Miss Roberts, Councillor and Mrs D.

Rural District Council. The monthly meeting of this Council was held On Monday morning at Tie Union v> orkhonse, when there were present, 3Ir Richard James, Hen- Uys (chairman), presiding; Rev John Davies, Ceu- lanymaesmawr; Messrs W. Morris and T. Jenkins, Oyfoethybrenin J. B. Morgan, Cynnullmawr; J. i Bonner, Llanafan; James Jones, Llanbadarn Lower; W. ilason. Llaneynfelin; E. Jones, Llanfihangel Upper; D. Davies, Llanfihangel Lower; Daniel Jones, Llangwyryfon; W. Davies and D. Morris, Llaniiar; E. Lewis, Llanrhystyd Haminiog; Rev J. M. Lewis, Llanrhystyd Mefenydd Messrs J. Parry, Melindwr; T. H. Jones, Parcel Canol; D. James and T. James, Trefeirig J. Roberts, Uchavndre; L. R. Lewis, Vaenor Lower; and M. D. Williams, Issayndre with Hugh Hughes, clerk; E. Llewellyn, assistant clerk and James Hughes, sanitary inspector. Outstanding Calls—The Clerk said the balance in the hands of the Treasurer to the credit of the Council that day was P-46 odd. Bills were recom- mended for payment that day amounting to P,133, and if these were passed they would have an over- draft. The overseers of several parishes had not yet paid their first call, and he asked for authority to take proceedings against the overseers if they did not pay forthwith.Ilr J. B. Morgan wished to know what parishes had not paid. in order to see if they were the same ones as usual.—The Clerk said the parishes which had not paid the calls due on December 16th were the following:- Ceulanymaesmawr, £12 Cwmrheidol, £ 14 Llan- afan, £10, Llanbadarn Lower, £22: Llanfihangel Upper, £ 20 Llanfihangel Lower, E19 Llangwyr- yfou, £10; total, £ 107.—Mr Daniel Morris pro- posed, and Mr Daniel Jones seconded, that the necessary authority be given the Clerk to take the proceedings unless calls were paid forthwith, and this was agreed to. Bacteriological Exantinationq.-The comments of the district medical officers upon the communi- cation of the County Council in regard to bacterio- logical examinations were read by the Clerk.—Dr Rees, Llaniiar, said such examinations were of the utmost importance in many diseases, in fact, some diseases could not be diagnosed in any other way, especially phthisis and diphtheria. Early diagnosis wa verv important in diphtheria, as they could then inoculate the patient with the serum, and if inoculated early the patient's changes of recovery were very much more favourable than at a later stao-e. There was no doubt that the serum treat- ment had been the means of saving many lives, and the death rate from diphtheria bad been very much reduced since its introduction a few years ago. Dr James wrote to a similar effect, and as to the suggestion that the District Council should pay for the diphtheria anti-toxin serum injected into patients who were too poor to pay for it themselves, he recommended that the District Council pay for the serum, and the County Council to pay for the bacteriological examina- tions, the result of the examinations to be sent at once by wire to the medical attendant and the medical officer of health.—The Assistant Clerk had had an interview with Mr Fryer, clerk of the County Council, who showed him a letter received from the Local Government Board in reply to a communication sent on the question by the Llan- dyssul Rural District Council. The Board said that the question of gratuitous distribution of anti-toxin by local authorities was at present under the Board's consideration. As to the second resolution, the Board stated that a district council might legally pay the reasonable cost of bacterio- logical examinations found to be necessary to enable them to carry out their duties. The ques- tion whether the expenditure incurred in any par- ticular case was legal would be a matter for the decision of the district auditor in the first instance. -No decision was arrived at in the matter pend- ing further information. A Bad Piece of Ptoad.-A letter was read from Alderman J. T. Morgan complaining of the condition of the road in front of his house, which had been cut up awfully by the carting of eighty loads of stone from Bwlchddwyallt field, and bad made it unfit for traffic.- -Rev John Davies proposed, and Mr Thomas Jenkins seconded, that the Surveyor put the road in the same condition as it was before this extra bauling was done, and this was agreed to. Crunch Cork Water Supply.—The Clerk said a communication had been received from the Llan- fihangel Lower Parish Council, stating that the question of the Cwnch Coch water supply had been adjourned until the 22nd inst, in order to see the plans and specifications, and to ascertain the esti- mated cost.—The Clerk said he had written inform- ing the Parish Council that the estimated cost was £ 30, and the Inspector had reminded. him that if the matter was adjourned again the estimate would have to be increased, because the occupiers would want compensation for entering upon their land i.r„er the hay had begnn to grow.—On the motion of Mr W. Morris, seconded by Mr Bonner, it was decided te proceed with the work without delay. Scarlet Fever.-Dr James reported fresh cases of scarlet fever at Llanbadarn since the last meeting, namely, at Penybryn Cottages, Richard Evans' house, Glynpadarn Lodge, Glynpadarn, and Padarn- terrace. Dr Rees reported that no fresh cases of scarlet fever had been notified from Bethel. The school was closed for seven weeks, and disinfected before re-opening. He had to record a solitary case of scarlet fever at Rhydfelin, the child being a pupil at Penparke School, and the disease was probably contracted in the Llanbadarn district, where ip was prevalent. He bad ordered very strict isolation. Llanbadarn Water Sllpply.-A letter was read from Messrs Roberts and Evans, solicitors, stating the Rev N. Thomas, Llanbadarn, had consulted them with reference to his assessment in respect of the water at Llanbadarn. He instructed them that he had an abundant supply on his own premises, and that he did not require nor did he use the public supply. They had, therefore, to give the District Council notice on his behalf that he would in future object. to pay the water rates. They believed the way be came to be asseseed was that his servants once during hia-absence did go to the standpipe and take water, but this was done with- out his sanction.—A copy of the letter bad been sent to the Llanbadarn Parish Council, who con- sidered that the Rev N. Thomas should be exempt from paying the rate in the same manner as others similarly situated.—Mr Morgan Williams expressed himself strongly on the question of these exemptions. He said the question would have to be faced by the Council. The water was taken to Llanbadarn on the understanding that there was great need of it there, but now they found there were several wells where suitable water could be obtained. The whole cost would eventually fall upon a few of the resi- dents—The Clerk said that the standpipes could be watched during dry weather, and if any persons who now obtained their supply from wells attempted to obtain it from the public source, they would become liable to the rates.—Acting upon the recommendation of the Parish Council, the Rev N. Thomas was exempted from payment of rates. Resignation.—A letter was read from Mr John Morgan, formerly of Ponterwyd, but now of Menai ( Bridg i, resigning his seat on the Council.—The Rev John Davies and Mr James Jones expressed regret at losing the services of Mr Morgan, who had been an able and active member of the Council, and had been one of its best chairmen.—The resignation was accepted. Alleged Encroat-hment--A letter was read from the Parish Council of Llanrhystyd Haminiog again calling attention to the alleged encroachment made by Mr Micah Morgan, Cwmvrolchfa, Lledrod, and Mr Morgan Morgan, Blaencwru, on a large tract of common land in the parish of Llanrhystyd Ham- iniog in May last. The wire had not yet been re- moved and thp Parish Council was anxious to know if the District Council intended to move further with the mat-er without delay, and if not, the Parish Council themselves were ready to take the matter up.—The Clerk said the matter had been left in his bands, and he had arranged once or twice to visit the place and take evidence, but. the weather had been unfavourable. He would be able to go down in a week or ten days. A Sore Point.-A letter was read from Mr Thomas Edwards, Pwllhobi House, Llanbadarn, asking permission to have the two houses, recently erected by him at Pwllhobi, supplied with water from the main pipe laid down on the opposite side of the road.—The Clerk said that application would have to be made to the Abe-wstwyth Cor- poration for permi^ion to tap the main to supply these bouses.-Mr Morgan Williams aeain gave vent to the sore feeling existing at Llnnbadarn regard- ing the water supply question. If the two Parish Councils, only knew, he said, that they would not be allowed to supply whom they liked without having to come to the Aberystwyth Corporation, they would never have gone to the expense in- curred—The Clerk I did my best at the time to stop the matter, but I was overruled. It is no good talking about that now. Talybont Water Supply.—A letter was read from Mr Daniel Hfgbes, stating that at a ioint meeting oSthe Ceulan and CynHullmawr Parish Councils it was decided that the agreement between Mrs Anwyl and the District Council as to the Talybont water supply required altering, so as to specify the different items clearer, in order to save future mis- arkding. Also that the scheme was too elaborate and expensive for a small villiage with a population of 600. A meeting of ratepayers had also .been held, and they were opposed to the scheme.—Mr John Davies, mason, also wrote stating that at a meeting held on the Sthiwst at the Board School it was unanimously agreed to protest against. the present supply scheme as being far too expensive, and to write to the District Council asking them for an extension of time to re- consiclet- this and other schemes to supply the Tillage at tess expense if possible.—The Clerk said a petition, containing about 130 signatures, had also been received, asking the Council to rescind i i its resolution, on the ground that the proposed scheme was too costly. The proposed expenditure of P.700 would be a crushing weight for a small village, the rateable value of which was only £ 500. —The Clerk said the authority they bad to recog- nise was the Parish Council, and they asked that the matter be postponed for another month. The Chairman This matter has been troubling us for a long time, and it has been adjourned time and again.-Mr Thomas Jenkins (who had been per- using a paper): What is this, the Borth culvert (loud laugliter.)-The Rev John Davies said the question of the Talybont water supply had been under consideration since the passing of the Local Government Act. The people of the village then thought they were going to get everything at once -water, light, three acres and a cow, and other things. He had been on the Parish C>unciI since its formation, and when the water question was first discussed a ratepayers' meeting was called in order to get the voice of the public. Few attended, but those present were in favour of having a proper water supply. This decision was afterwards con- demned by those who were not present. Another ratepayers' meeting was called in order tnat tne dissatisfied ones could be present, but again they did not attend. An appeal, was then made to the District Council. The District Council had moved at the request of the Parish Council, and the Parish Council had moved at the request of the ratepayers. He thought the best thing they could now do was to accede to the request of the Parish Council, and defer the matter for a month. No doubt, the scheme was an elaborate one, but perhaps the engineer could be asked to re-consider it, and reduce his estimate.— Mr J. B. Morgan, in seconding, said there was a good deal of talk in Talybont. and all the blame was put on the district councillors. The council- lors had, however, only done what they had been asked to do by the Parish Council. The inhabi- tants of Talybont wanted water, but when they came to understand that they had to pay for it themselves they backed out.-Rev John Davies said much blame was being cast upon Mrs Anwyl, who, it was said, endeavoured to impose several conditions. There was nothing of the kind. What she had asked was very reasonable, and a satis- factory understanding could easily be come to.- The Clerk said that in the petition it was stated we much prefer to put up with the inconvenience of carrying water from different sources than to burden ourselves with rates."—The matter was deferred for a month. Small Pox Ilospital.-The Board of Guardians bad made a recommendation that this Council should arrange with the Aberystwyth Town Council for the admission into their isolation hospital of any cases of small pox, should any occur at the Union Workhouse.—Mr T. H. Jones proposed that the Clerk be instructed to act in accordance with the recommendation.—Mr James Jones was of opinion that something on a larger scale would have to be considered. They had cases of in- fectious disease occuring continually, and they would eventually, he thought, have to provide a hospital with accommodation for twenty or thirty. Mr W. Morris seconded Mr T. H. Jones' proposi- tion, which was agreed to. Inspector's -Report.The Inspector reported hiving visited Frongoch Mine on January 23rd. accompanied by Mr John Bonner. He found the settling pits as usual full of slime and sand, and the effluent running into the Nantridil brook with- out being settled at all. He had visited Penygarn, Bow Street, as to the removal of cattle from the old dwelling house complained of at the previous meeting. The occupier consented to remove them in as quick a time as possible, and he, therefore, did not think it advisable to issue a summons. As the Parcel Canol Parish Council objected to the Penllwyn water scheme being taken to Pentre- geufrordd, on the ground that they had an ample supply at Pistyll Dolcriw, be had had that water analysed, and it was found to be unfit for drinking and general domestic purposes. A Digyutr.The Llanbadarn Upper and Cwm- rbeidol Parish Councils having agreed to pay one- third each of the cost of a new bridge at Cwm- rheidol, a dispute bad arisen, the former Council contending that it was unfair that they should pay one-third, but that they should pay according to rateable value, which was the custom between the two parishes. There was an amount of Zl 14s 6d owing by the Llanbadarn Council.—The Clerk was directed to apply for this amount, and unless paid that proceedings be taken for its re- covery. Borth Culvert.—The Inspector presented an estimate of the cost of repairing and extending the Borth culvert, and it was decided that the plans be sent to the Local Government Board for appro- val. PE fTY SESSIONS. At the weekly Petty Sessions on Wednesday, February 12th, before the Mayor (Mr R. J. Jones). Alderman Peter Jones, Mr John Watkins, and Mr Thomas Griffiths, E. Edwards, The Laurels, was charged with selling milk adulterated with 11 per cent of added water to the prejudice of the con- sumer on January 8th. Mr W. P. Owen appeared for the defendant. Evidence was given by Supt. Phillips and P.C. Davies, Llanbadarn, and a fine at 58 and cost was imposed. The Mayor remarked that the Bench believed that Mr Edwards, who was not at home at the time, was quite innocent of the offence.—Geo. Newman, Trefechan, for being drunk on the highway, was fined 5s and costs.— John W. Roberts, 6, Amos Hill, Penygraig, Glamor- ganshire, collier, was charged with refusing to pay P.3 18s due to the Guardians of the Aberystwyth Union for the maintenance of his father. De- fendant was committed to prison for a month with hard labour.—The license of the Western Vaults was transferred from Walter T. Robinson to Eleanor Jones. ♦
PUBLIC MEETING AT SHILOH CHAPEL. ADDRESS BY CANON HICKS. In the evening, a largely-attendeu public meet- ing was held at Shiloh Chapel in connection with the British Women's Temperance Association. Mrs Principal Roberts, presided, and referred to the Women's Club which had been opened that afternoon Tbey wanted, she said, as many members as possible. The only conditions of membership were that they must belong to the British Women's Temperance Association, and pay a subscription of 2s for the whole winter. Canon'Hicks, M.A., then addressed the meeting. He advised caution against the tendency to contine the Temperance Movement to this or that par- ticular sex. There was a temptation to carry it too tar. Hut there was a sense m wmcn tiie Leiu- perance Movement was peculiarly a women's movement. One was owing to the peculiarly nervous sensibility of woman. It was easy to create in a woman a craving for strong drink, and when it lay hold of a woman's constitution the decline downwards was rapid and sure. They found to their despair that the recovery of a woman drunkard was one of the most difficult and pre- carious in the world. If the womanhood of their country was to be degraded on a large scale by drinking habits, they might be quite sure that they would have more and more of drunken homes, and young children brought up in habits which would make them the worst of citizens and the worst of Christians. So for these reasons. it was very im- portant to enlist all the women of all classes in such a great sisterhood as the British Women's Temperance Association to counteract this awful tendency, which was one of the most grievous social effects of their times, namely, excessive drinking. There was another reason why the Tem- perance Movement ought especially to enlist the sympathy and work of women. It was because the drink difficulty was in one aspect very largely a social difficulty. It ramified their domestic life. It tound its opportunity in every kind of festive occasion. Hardly any domestic or social occasion could take place without the temptation and op- portunity, traditionally given, of having in the drink. The queen of domestic custom was the woman, the wife, and the mother, and if they wanted to extirpate drinking habits from all these multifarious ramifications up and down their social life they would never do it unless they en- listed the women of all classes on the side of total abstinence. And no one could estimate the results obtained by the British Women and other organisa- tions in this direction. Speaking of temperance f legislation, Canon Hicks said they were in a great difficulty in regard to it just now. The Temperance Movemyit was very much alive. He had proof of that in the earnest and even enthusiastic meetings which the Temperance Movement attracted everywhere, and one par- ticular thing they noticed about it was that ttiey now wanted meetings of an effective kind, and less and less was thought of mere noisy demonstrations, What Temperance people wanted, especially the younger section, was patient, systematic educa- ] tion in the great principles of Temperance reform. But they wanted to be assisted by legislation, and they did not get it for various reasons. One reason was that they had sent to Parliament a num- ber of persons who were pledged to support the drink traffic. He could not get his friends always to see that. The great majority of those sent to the House of Commons—excellent persons, no doubt-were pledged to the hilt against Temper- ance reform. It seemed to him it was a little too late to ask those men for Temperance legislation. He was afraid they would have to wait till another election, and then put into power a Government pledged to carry out thorough Temperance legis- lation (hear, hear.) He (the speaker) made that the governing principle in his politics. He never cared about the question of disestablishment or disendownment, because he reckoned that any one parson of the most, bigoted kind, or any twelve paisons, did not do so much harm as one great public house. He knew they did not agree with him in Wales on that point, but that was his opinion. He never asked Are you a Liberationist or are you for the Established Church 1" But he said Will you vote, and are you a man likely to vote for giving the people power in their respec- tive localities to veto the licences for the sale of drink or not?" And the curious thing was that that landed him in supporting a man who was a resolute reformer all round. They were looking to Wales constantly from England, and they were very mueh obliged to Wales for what she had done already. They wanted to reduce the quantity of drink consumption. They drank in England twice as much per head as they did in the United States, and four times as much per bead as their brothers and sisters did in Canada. This was a scandal and national disgrace, and they could not afford to handicap themselves as a nation by this absurd and demoralising excess. What would reduce it To reduce it meant that they wanted to reduce the profits of those who made it and sold it, and they did not want their profits reduced. He was not going to say one word against the publicans and brewers. Many of them he knew, and many of them were excellent men. But they could not see the problem as he saw it. Although they did not want to do anyone any harm, yet these great commercial concerns had a natnral gravitation toward the increase of their profits, and the tendency of great, combined capital was as steady, as irresistible, as instinctive as the progress of a great glacier down the hill. They could, therefore, reckon upon it that the great capitalist drink interest of Great Britain was an enormous force against Temperance reform. It would meet them in a subsidised press, and in the brilliancy and eloquence of the pleaders who applied for liquor licenses in the court. It would meet them on the political platform, and in their local, municipal, and social organisations. It was omnipresent; it rose up and baffled them at every turn. In conclusion, Canon Hicks made an eloquent appeal to members of the Christian Church to be true to the great principles of righteousness and self-denial, to abstain from strong drink, and to -do their utmost to reclaim those who had fallen victims to the curse (applause). I Miss Winstanley, B.A. of the University College, also addressed the meeting. The cause of Temper- ance, she said, was one which had enHsted much support, and yet it was rarely realised, by the mass of the people. The very future of their national existence depended upon the manner in which they took it up It was a significant fact, when they looked at the matter, that although the cause of Temperance had been urged so much, and had in some ways effected so much, yet the proportion of drink consumed by the people was steadily increas- ing. It was evident that while the drunken habits of the upper classes had decreased the drunken habits of the lower classes had increased, and of the 160 millions spent in drink last year two-thirds came from the working classes. The vitality and manhood of the nation was being eaten out by the drink traffic, and the great commercial success of America was attributed to the reduction in the amount spent on drink as compared with that of England. The Rev A. Wynne Thomas, pastor of the English Presbyterian Church, in the course of a convincing adrlress, said the reason the drink evil was not remedied was because chiefly the men and women of their country failed to realise it. He thought one of the chief things they had to do in the present day was to try and realise the Temper- ance facts which were so continually upon their lips. Temperance stories had done more harm than good. What they wanted was to realise the evils of the drink traffic. The rev gentleman then drew an interesting comparison between the 160 millions sterling spent on strong drink in this country last year, and" the results which could have been obtained had such a stupendousamount been spent in other directions for the benefit of mankind. What did they get, he asked, for this 160 millions It was said the spending «f it was good for trade. The money was not thrown into the sea. No, he often thought they should have been far better off if the money had been thrown into tae sea. The statement that money spent, however it was spent, was good for trade, was an ignorant fallacy that tfcey wanted sadly to get rid of. If he spent his money in buying something that would bring him health and comfort, in buying a good house or a pleasant garden, or if he spent his money in something that would bring him intellectual enjoyment then he bad spent his money well, for in spending it he had not only g..t something which was valuable, but he had also added to the national wealth and had encouraged those people who produced commodities which spread health, joy, and life. The idea that money spent was good for trade, irrespective of the object for which it was spent,, was, however, one of the most, fatal fallacies that over beguiled man. What did they get for their 160 millions per annum 1 He was afraid the answer could only be put too concise. They got criminals, lunatics, and invalids for their money. Instead of spending this huge sum of money in supporting those who would produce commodities which would make for health, life and happiness, he said it deliberately they spent it in supporting those who made it their business to wither the joys of life and to widen the gates of death. The Rev T. E. Roberts, M.A., in a short arhhess spoke of the million pledges schcme and the Children's Bill which became law at the beginning of the year. M Mrs Roberts having thanked the speakers and others who had taken part, the meeting ended with prayer. During the evening a quarteite party sang, and an organ solo was given by Mr J. E. Leah, A.R.C.O.
ff HOMES FOR MILLIONS." FREE HOMESTEADS AND CHEAP AGRICULTURAL LAND IN WESTERN CANADA.—" Homes for Mil- lions.—This is the title to one of the excellent illustrated articles, published in the pamphlets issued by Hon Clifford Sifton, Minister of the Interior, for the Government of Canada, and which are sent free on application to Mr W. T. R. Preston. Commissioner of Emigration, 17, Victoria-street, London. A glance through this literature inspires one with a desire to go immediately to Canada and join in the success that seems to follow all who desire to purchase land at low rates, or settle on the lands given free by the Government. This success is testified to by thousands from the United States, who have taken advantage of the present ¡ conditions in Canada. It is also testified to by hose from Great Britain and Ireland, the following being an extract from the letter of A. H. Eckford. late Major I. Staff Corps, Norfolk Square, Hyus 1 ark, W., in the Chronicle of Monday, February 3rd: I have bad a personal knowledge and ex- perience of Canada extending over a period of sixteen or seventeen years. I have experienced some pretty cold weather but have found the cold dry and bracing, and most enjuyablc. I may mention the reason of my going out was to visit my son, who has from small beginnings gradually and steadily worked himself up in a good position, and has a fine ranche now. In one of my recent visits I came across a young man of twenty-two, only two years in that country—the son of a small village carpenter in the Western Highland?, of bcotlund. This lad was getting 45 dols. (£9) a cjonth, riding and breaking-in horses. It has just come to my mind that in going out last year two lllen i were hired whilst on the voyage out to Manitoba, and this last autumn I saw a number of men, who had come from Manitoba, hired at once, and getting 30 dols. to 35 dols. a month. .«$)»
EGLWYSFACI-I. SCUQOL BOARD.—The term of office of the present Board is rapidly drawing to a close. The members have discharged their duties satisfactorily on the whole,.yet there is a strong feeling that some changes should be made and fresh blood introduced. In all probability, therefore, new can- didates will be forthcoming at the next election. The standard of the school is high, and the school- master is doing splendid work. A CORRESPONDENT IVRIT.ES -In a recent issue of your paper I read a leter signed "On the Dike" dealing wilh the supposed outbreak of small-pox. The writer went on to refer to a well, whose, waters, he says, are not pure, and he wished to know who was responsible for the purity of the water. If your correspondent was a resident of the district, he would be aware that, the Parish Council bad accomplished great improvements at the well, and had done their best to ensure an efficient supply of water for the village. Whether the water is pure or not is a matter, in my opinion, that the sanitary inspector of the district should attend to. Perhaps the Parish Council ought to awaken this official to his duties, because if the water is unwholesome there is. a possibility of a scourge worse even than small-pox. THE WATER SUPPLY.—Under above heading in your issue of the 5th a brief note was made of the Small-pox scare, and also of the defect of healthy water in the small village close by called Furnace. It was stated that the inhabitants number about 50, and that they are obliged constantly to use for domestic purposes, water that has long been con- demned, as unfit. A further remark was made that a supply of pure water may possibly be had at a comparatively small expense. Questions were asked as to who was to be blamed for this serious state of affairs, the Medical Officers, Parish Council, District Council, or who?" Since the above date I have gathered some little information. I find that the matter has been under notice since t he time of the late Mr G. Paddock of Ynyshir Hall. That gentleman offered to supply the inhabitants with plenty of pure water, from his own estate, at a veiy nominal 'charge, but owing to the mean refusal of a certain party, to act in conjunction, the opportunity was withdrawn, and consequently the whole village has had to suffer. However, for some time past, the Parish Council of Scuborycoed has, to their credit, given the affair their serious consideration. The Council being a body thoroughly representative of the parish, and having the ability, and power to do the work, it is to be hoped that very soon matters will come to a successful issue. It. is understood that the family of the above deceased gentleman has promised to give the matter their substantial support. It seems that the long-talked of water supply to Furnace is to be in the near future an established fact. But why is the whole affair kept so secret? Who has ever seen a report of this Parish Council's meetings ? The object is good. Pure water is essential to the every-day life, and well-being of the public. The efforts of the Council ought to, and will undoubt- edly receive the approval, and support of every person throughout the whole Parish, if only acquainted with the circumstances. Of course there might be grumbler's. None so wise as those who know nothing. Some, as the old proverb says, are so lazy in doing good to others," as old Ludham's dog, that leaned his bead against the wall to bark." Public men striding through difficulties deserve recognition.—On the Bike.
PATIS ABOUT I) EO P L E- Lord Dufferin's Passion for Painting. Lord DutTeri«»'« pusnion wan for painting, say* Miss Ella Hepworth Dixon, and more ttiwi once he escaped from a viee-i egal throne to go and paint, inoognito, at Julian's studio in P.n is. A Canadian friend of mine tells me that the great viceroy was once fairly caught. It WHS when the Dufferins were representing the Queen in Canada. One day my friend saw a man whom she knew well going the round of the different ateliers in the Passage des PHIlO- rnmiiH. That is an eccentric Englishman, a M. Smithsoi), who conies to paint-a middle- aged man, as you see," explained a Swedish stu- dent next to her. "I don't know what you mean," exclaimed my bewildered Canadian friend, that man is the Marquis of Duffeiin, Viceroy of Canada. I know him as well as I luiow YOII." When his Excellency passed her, she was imicli too patriotic not to make her most demure Court curtsey. Lord Duiferiu recognised his blonde Canadian subject at once, hmghed heartily n the whole thing, and acknowledged that he had been fairly found out. I may men- tion that the unfortunate vice-regal art-student had had to undergo all the usual torment-, iu- dignities, and standing of drinks which are in- flicted on new-comers in the men's studios in Paris, The consternation when the truth be- came known, was, I believe, considerable. A Noble Son. The death of Lord Dufferin naturally recalls the death of his eldert tioti, Lord Ava, who wile hilled at Ladysmith during file great assnult upon the defences on January 6th, 1900. He had been a lieutenant in the 17th Lancers, but left tile Army flome years before. As soon, how- ever, as war in South Africa appeared to be in- evitable, ho went out in the hope of seeing service. Sir George White at once appointed him his "galloper,"and lie aoted later in the same way for Inn Hamilton, who had command of the southern third of the de- fences during the siege. Very early in the morning of January 6th, as he was trying to locate the enemy on the top of Ulf ridge between Csesar's Camp and Wagon Hill he was shot in the forehead whilst looking over a rock, and though lie lingered for a few days lie never recovered consciousness after he fell uttering the one word Dene It would be hard to imagine a finer type of the well-born, adventurous, and gener- ous Irishman. A sergeant of the Ituyal Irish Fusiliers, hearing one day who he was, ingenu- ously remarked, He seems a very nice gentle- man. Nobody would take him for a lord The sayiug may stand for the epitaph of a man so full of the highest promise that he would have been a worthy suooessor to his father had he not died in his country's service. Of "The Clarion." Mr. Robert Blatchford lias had a somewhat cljoqtiered career. When about twenty he entered the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, and on leaving that celebrated regiment became a con- tributor to a well-known Sunday paper, adopt* ing the pen-name of "Nunquam," which ho made so famous that he commanded a salary of something like a thousand pounds a year. Later, in conjunction with several of his col- leagues, he started the Clarion, in which paper ho has done a great deal of work of all sorts and conditions. His military stories are much in re- quest. Concerning one of them, "Tommy Atkins," Sir Evelyn Wood, V.C., has placed it on record that ho sat up all night reading it. It is, however, as a writer on Socialism that Mr. Blatchford is best known. He has done a great deal to popularise Socialism in the great industrial centres, though in the doing of it lie has injured his career as a literary DKLIl. Mr. Blatchford is a strenuous fighter, but he always fights straight; and friend and foe ulilte will wish him the best results from his West Indian trip. The Ameer's Idea. Miss Lilias Hamilton, who has been giving some more lectures on her experiences while acting as doctor to the Afghanistan Court. tolls some funny stories about the Into Ameer. The Ameer believed in beginning work early in the morning and working till he was tired. Dinner was served when he wished to, eat, and when he was inclined to sleep the Court was closed. Punctuality being unknown to the Eitstern Magnate, he ws at a loss to under- stand it in others, and one day when Miss H" mil ton was sitting with him she noticed that it was her lunch-time. She excused lierself ikii(I explained where she was going, only to be nslied: "Arfl yolt hungry?" I can't say I aui I'irtictdarly." "Theil why do yolt eIÜ?" l\Ii,s Hamilton explained t>>at it washer l1"I1ILI lunoii hour. What has that to do with it?" was the response. "Who made it your lunch hour?
