THE WEEK'S NElfS. *»«-'——~~~'''



l WALES AND WELSHMEN. Mr Amos Jones, of Bangor, Las been appointed assistant superintendent for the Prudential Assurance Society in the Shrewsbury and Welsh- pool districts. A Swansea telegram states that three boys, named Tucker, Davies, and another were drowned at Cwmcwila while bathing. Their bodies have been recovered. If the reports with regard to the extraordinary crops of mushrooms in North Wales are to be believed, it will soon be possible, for once in a way, to get something approaching pure ketchup in our hotels and restaurants. As a Cardigan tourist named Evan Williams was coming down Killay-hill, Gower, on his bicycle, he failed to control the machine and dashed into a trap which was going to Gower. He was picked up, and it was discovered that his leg was broken.y^,mmmm^ The outbreak of malignant typhoid fever is spreading at Bagillt, notwithstanding the efforts made by fumigation and the destruction of the bedding and clothing of persons attacked by the disease. The spread of the disease is creating great consternation in the district. With a liberality, financial and otherwise, not always practised by large landowners, the Duke of Westminster has sent a donation of .£50 to- wards the building of a Wesleyan chapel at Holywell. Some time ago he tent a similar donation in aid of the purchase of the freehold rif the chanell I The Rhondda Valley, it is stated, has been the scene during the past week of some remarkable religious services. Colliers have crowded the chapels and united in earnest prayers for the removal of the difficulties which so seriously interfere with their work and with the well-being of their families. Damage to the amount of about JE1,000 was done by a fire which broke out in a draper's shop at Penmaenmawr. It is thought that after one or two more fires have taken place the villagers will perhaps carry out a project often talked about of supplying themselves with a fire brigade. At present they have to depend on the Bangor Fire Brigade for the extinction of their fires. At Rhyl, in common no doubt with other seaside resorts, tradesmen complain of being called to serve upon juries in the height of the holiday season, when all the time at their disposal is needed for their own businesses. The Deputy Coroner of Flintshire (Mr Lloyd) appears to consider the grievance a genuine one, and he promised to do what he could to secure that at this time of the year at least the juries shall be drawn from the leisured classes of the community. A iibei action is likely to al iae out of the recent Treioreat disaster. The driver of the train has instructed a solicitor to take action on his behalr against the Daily Chronicle with respect to state- ments contained in an a tide on the accident. It is contended that the article alleged that the accident was due to the shortness of the curve and excessive speed, and that the excessive speed was attributable to the anxiety of the driver to mike up lost time at Treforest. This was absolutely disproved by the evidence taken at the inquest. An interesting encounter was witnessed at Llanerchymedd (Anglesey) Brewster Sessions over the question of the renewal of the licence of the Ux bridge Arms, Rhosybol, a house which has been licensed for forty years. In a sense it was a dispute between Church and Dissent, as the witnessess for the licence included the vicar, and a chief witness against the renewal was the Calvinistic Methodist minister. Following an example whi h has been set them in several parts of the Principality, the magistrates refused the licence on the ground that there were convictions against the past and present tenants, and that the licence was not required. «
