LLANIDLOES. Musical.—Mr John Chapman carried off the challenge solo honours at Dernol Eis- teddfod on Thursday. First prize was won in the ploughing' match at Rhayader on Thursday by Mr J. Jenkins Lloyd, Brynpostig. Spoon Shoot.—At Llandinam range, on Wednesday, the spoons were won by Pte G. More with a score of 50, and Pte N. Wilson with a score of 44. Visitors.—Some Llani hoys who have been working at Tumbles coal pits are back at home pending a working arrange- ment of the Eight Hours' Bill. Departure.—All who are interested in the spiritual welfare of the town will receive with regret the intimation which the Rev T. Mordaf Pierce threw out on Wednesday. He then signified his intention, after a few more months' residence, of leaving for Dolgelley. H Sayings" and Words."—Two capital papers were read at the Literary and De- bating Society meeting on Thursday, over which Mr W. O. Davies presided. The first was by Mr J. H. Manuel on "What I in- tended to say and what I did say," the second was by Mr 1. G. Jones on Words." The C.C. Election.—" Idloesian" write? as follows" You seem to be a bit off the rails in your remarks re the election. The contest here was to decide the best man,, irrespective of creed 'or politics. The ac- tual result was not by any means a sur- prize it was anticipated all along. Mr George is returned to the Council pledged to see that Llanidloes gets a share of what she so richly deserves and he will see that Welshpool and Newtown do not get all their own way." Election Arithmetic !-We are informed on the most credible authority (vide, a con- temporary) that at the recent County Council election, out of 297 on the list, 257 recorded their votes, the result being- declared by Mr Arthur Davies as follows: William George, 240 Evan Williams, 215." There must be many plural voters at "Llanidloes, or else a system of arith- metic has been discovered which has not yet met with universal acceptance. In any case, the matter demands the serious attention of the Montgomeryshire Teachers" Association, who cannot ignore such start- ling occult mathematical methods. One can easily imagine the paralysing effect this will have upon the local tradesmen, and visitors to the ancient borough are recom- mended to see they get the correct change when making their purchases!
The Borough Member. To THE EDITOR OF TIFE EXPRESS." Sir,—I greatly regret fhat the entertainment in connection with the Newtown Liberal Associa- tion and the Women's Social Union to celebrate the recent victory has been fixed for a date on which I cannct possibly leave London. Had I known of the proposal I would have ventured to suggest another day for the kind consideration of the Association and Union. It is extremely difficult to leave the House now, and most string- ent Whips issue, one no later than this morning. Nevertheless, I hope to get away by arrangement just to be present at Llanfyllin on the 16th, which I am sure my constituents would wish me to dor even at the cost of a day away from the House at a critical juncture. I take this opportunity of saying that the, Easter Holidays this year are to be combined with the Whitsuntido vacation, under the name of tha Spring recess, and that the Houso only rises at Easter -from March 21th till 29fcb. Of these days one is Good Friday, one a Sunday and one Easter Monday. Saturday 26th ie the only working day, and it is a day on which by common consent no public engagements are fixed. I think it necessary to write because fixtures away from London are in the present Parliament impossible to attend unless attendance in Parlia- ment is for the purpose broken and ualpss a con- stituency is within a short run fiem London.- Yours faithfully, J. D. EEES Travellers' Club, S.W., loth March, 1910.
