ITHE WEEK'S NEWS.__
THE WEEK'S NEWS. M. Clemenceau, writing in the Justice, con- demns the policy of France in Madagascar, and concludes by declaring that her colonial action, as hitherto understood and carried out, has led to an increase in the country's burdens. Consternation has seized the shareholders of the House and Land Investment Trust, one of the Bilfour Companies, intimation having been given that at an early date a call will be made upon them in respect of their heldings in the Company. IC, CADBURY'S COCOA has, in a remarkable degree, those natural elements of sustenance which give the system endurance and hardihood, building up muscle and bodily vigour, with a steady action that renders it a most acceptable and reliable beverage.Health. 8ÀØS At Berwick, Ralph Dixor, auctioneer and enter- tainment caterer, was committed for trial on a charge of embezzling moneys of the Equitable Benefit Building Society, of which he was secretary, and also on charges of falsifying the books. The alleged defalcations amount to over Jg1,700. 8ii The United States Senate sat all Wednesday night and debated the Silver Purchase Repeal Bill. The rules of the Senate do not permit of the application of the closure, and there is no manner in which a vote can be forced except by tiring out those whose speech-making obstructs a natural and parliamentary settlement. czal DR. POLLARD SAYS OF SHERMAN RUPTURE TREATMENT :-He thanks God and every other influence that determined him to try it. All who want to get rid of Rupture and Trusses should send to J. A. Sherman, Hernia Speciali t, 64, Chancery Lane, London, for his book with English endorsements, post free, 7d. Aahwoith Read, a Burnley manufacturer, was charged at Manchester, along with Elizabeth Ann Remington, a domestic servant formerly in his employment, with murdering the illegitimate child of the latter. A further charge against Read was that he was an accessory both before and after the murder. The prisoners were remanded. A licensing case of some interest to people who have apartments in hotels was decided at the Altrincham Police Court. A gentleman named Fullalove, who lives at the Brooklands Hotel, invited two friends into the hotel after hours one night, and all three were served with liquor at Mr Fullalove's expense. Police summonses followed. The Bench decided that no offence had been committed. i The appeals by Messrs. Walker against the decision of the Crewe magistrates closing five of their large houses, and three houses of other brewers, valued at X80,000 in all, because they put managers and not tenants in possession, will come on for hearing at the Chester Quarter Sessions on the 20th inst. Great interest is taken in the result by the trade. Mr Marshall, Q.C., is retained for Messrs. Walker. Russia seems to be the country where the services of women doctors are most appreciated, judging from an extensive inquiry on the subject which has just been completed by a well-known Russian medical man. In all there are about seven hundred women doctors in Russia, and many of these oceupy important positions in hospitals and workhouses, and m Government institutions. The remuneration for these different posts varies from about .£200 downwards. At Oldham James Burns and Frank Brett were charged with stealing £ 125, and Charles Brett with receiving JE10 of the money, knowing it to be stolen. The prosecutor, Lot Taylor, alleged that Burns took the money from his house, and tried to foist on him a bag filled with biass checks in return. During the hearing of the case it ras disclosed that all the men were interested in a wrestling match, and Burns stated that the money, or a portion of it, was given to him as a bribe, practically to buy his brother over, so that the latter should not win the match. The magistrates characterised the men as cheats and as a disgrace to the town, and declined to let the proseoutor have his bag of gold. At Leeds Joseph Parker, 18, was remanded, charged with setting fire to the premises of Longiey Brothers, whereby damage amounting to £ 20,000 was done. The prisoner had in his possession a rug belonging to Mr Bruce, s ipen- diary magistrate. He had taken the rug from the magistrates' retiring room, where are numbers of forms of application for summons, one of which he had filled up as follows Joseph Parker, offence, setting fire to Messrs. Longiey's bedding factory." While in the cells he con- fessed that he got into the warehouse by breaking a window. He saw a box of matches and set the place alight. The police surgeon said he believed the prisoner was of uusound mind, but would like to examine him further. Sow THE SEEDS of good health, prune and strengthen sickly and weak branches of the tree of life, with the aid of Holloway's World Re- nowned Pills and Ointment. The Pills improve the appetite, strengthen the digestion, and regulate the liver. Under treatment with the Ointment bad legs, become sound, scorbutic skins cast off their scales, and scrofulous sores cease to annoy. When rubbed upon the abdomen, it checks all tendency to irritation in the bowels, and averts diarrhoea, and other disorders of the intestines frequently prevailing through the summer and fruit seasons. Heat lumps, blotches, pimples, inflammation of the skin, and enlarged glands, can be effectively overcome by using Holloway's remedies, according to instructions given to each purchaser. During the hearing at Leyland Sessions of a case of cruelty to a horse information was tendered as to the composition of a mysterious article of diet. A man bought a horse, fat and in good condition, but suffering from a painful deformity in one of its forelegs, which made it an act of cruelty to walk the animal. The man caused the animal to be walked on the way to Preston Station, and was accordingly summoned for cruelty to it. In the course of his answers to Police-constable Jackson, of the Leyland force, he said that he was going to have the animal turned into German sausage.—Inspector Wilkie said he believed the animal was to be sent to Belgium or some other country on the Continent. There was quite a recognised trade in old horses for this kind of thing. The man who bought this horse had told him it was going for beef. The magistrates of Marshland (Cambs) have before them a series of remarkable cases of fraud by means of gilded shillings. It seems that a large number of small tradespeople, principally tobacconists, have been victimised to a consider- able extent, in several instances giving as much as 19s. lOd. in exchange for what they believed to be a sovereign. So widely has the deception been practised in the Fens that a general police notice was issued, and yet so cleverly was the impesture continued that it flourished in spite of the proclamation. One tobacconist whilst hand- ling one of the gilded shillings in the presence of the impostor apologised for his suspicious eyeing of the coin by explaining that there are so many gilded shillings being passed off as sovereigns." "A fellow that would do that ought to be trans- ported," responded the wily one, as he pocketed his 18s. lOd. profit and decamped At Newcastle-under-Lyne Court, William Edward Cartwright, solicitor, formerly deputy town clerk of the borough, was charged with having obtained A:300 by false pretences from Mrs Harvey. Mrs Harvey, it was stated, handed over the sum named in gold to Cartwright to invest for her on mortgage. He did not do so, but appropriated the mdney to'his own purpose i. He was committed for trial on this charge, and also upon one of fraudulently dealing with .£700 which had been deposited with him to invest by George Newbrook, a young post-office official, to whom the money had been left as sole executor under a will. There was a third commitment for having appropriated large sums of money belonging to the Newcastle Benefit Building Society, for which he waa solicitor. He coolly declared in court that he had spent all the money. Andrew Pepper, solicitor's clerk, estate agent, &c., formerly a member of the Town Council, and secretary of the building society named, was charged together with Cartwright with having conspired to defraud the society. Pepper previously stood committed for trial on charges of having robbed the society of some hundreds of pounds. In the conspiracy charges the accused were remanded on heavy bad.
WALES AND WELSHMEN. __————I
WALES AND WELSHMEN. __— ——— A serious farm fire occurred at Llandyrnog, Denbighshire, the farm buildings being complete- ly gutted. It is stated that Mr Thomas Ellis, Mr Herbert Lewis, Mr Lloyd-George and Mr Frank Edwards, are about to spend two or three weeks in Spain. The Conway Board of Fishery Conservators decided at their last meeting to increase the charge for net licences to -65 for the ensuing season. Services in Welsh have been started in -St. Nicholas's Cathedral Church, Newcastle-on-Tyne, being the first ever held in any cathedral in the North of England.8W(VjH -.= Eighteen fresh cases of typhoid fever are noti- fied at Bagillt. The continued growth of the epidemic is said to be causing serious alarm in the district, and special measures for its suppres-I sion will probably now have to be taken. At Pwllheli Robert Roberts was charged with certain offences under the Debtors Act, but the evidence was not sufficient to sustain the charges, and Roberts was discharged. A summons against Owen Roberts for alleged aiding and abetting was withdrawn.I I(-L:I EL.A= A town s meeting was liela ar, the »&ating Rwk, Bangor, to support the movement in favour of ob- taining a provisional order for the construction of a pier at Garth Point. There was a large attend- ance. A resolution in favour of erecting the pier was carried enthusiastically. I At the half-yearly meeting of the Court of Governors of Cardiff University College, the Prin- cipal, Dr. Viriamu Jones, reported that the num- ber of students during the past session had been 317, of whom 121 were women. Lord Aberdare, who presided, referred in hopeful terms to the future of Welsh education. Captain Pocklington, adjutant of the Denbigh- shire Hussars, will take over the appointment of Brigade-Adjutant of the 15th Yeomanry Cavalry Brigade at the end of this month. The Brigade consists of the Denbighshire Hussars and the Montgomeryshire Yeomanry Cavalry, and its head-quarters are at Wrexham. At Llwyncrumfach farmhouse, St. Clear's, an infant named Anne Evans, aged two years, fell into a large vessel filled with pig's wash, and was drowned. The fatality occurred during the parents' brief absence from home, and the sad discovery was made by a neighbour, who had been fetched by one of the children of the homestead. Major Forbes, who has completed his period of service as adjutant of the Montgomeryshire Yeomanry, rejoins his old regiment, the King's Dragoon Guards. Major Forbes served in the ranks in the 17th Lancers, and was a sergeant in that regiment while it was in the Zulu war. In August, 1881, he was given a commission in the King's Dragoon Guards. :=: At Cardiff a meeting was held to consider the question of opening free libraries, museums, parks, etc., on Sunday. A resolution was sub- mitted approving of this course, but it was re- jected in favour of an amendment declaring Sunday opening to be inimical to the "social, moral, and religious welfare and to the domestic and social happiness" of the borough. A disgraceful scene took place at Leeswood the other evening. A number of colliers from Brymbo and Wrexham attended at the Leeswood pits to solicit assistance. The appeal was readily responded to. The strikers, having received a large number of contributions, then went from one public-hon-e to another, with the inevitable result which follows such movements, and finally the police had to interfere to restore order. It was expected that at the last meeting of the Holywell Local Board Mr Lambert wouli have moved to rescind a resolution prohibiting the holding of Sunday concerts in the Assembly Hall. Several Nonconformist bodies, however, having petitioned the Board not to sanctionsuch concerts, Mr Lambert withdrew his motion, contenting himself with an expression of opinion that Sunday evening concerts exerted a beneficial influence upon young people. At the Rhyl Town Hall a Local Government Board inspector sat to hear an application on behalf of the Rhyl Improvement Commissioners for power to borrow J;2,000 towards the erection of an infectious diseases hospital and < £ 100 to- wards providing means Of disinfection. The application was strongly opposed by several neighbouring authorities, who were represented at the inquiry, as well as by private owners of property. The inspector visited the site of the proposed hospital, and promised to report the result of his visit in due course. General interest was taken in the charges of theft which were expected to be preferred against two servants in the employ of the London and North-Western Railway Company at Blaenau Festiniog last week. The case against Henry Tuckfield aompletely broke down, and he was dis- charged without a stain on his character." It was stated that the Company would reinstate him in his former position, but the Bench expressed a doubt whether this was sufficient reparation. W. G. Mottram, the other prisoner, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three months' imprisonment, with hard labour. At Coed-poeth, near Wrexham, Sir George Osborne Morgan, M.P., addressed an enthusiastic meeting of his constituents. The hon. baronet at the outset deplored the misery and loss which had followed the coal strike, and said that while it was difficult to decide upon the best method of settlement, the most repulsive method was that of starving the workmen into submission. He con- demned the obstructive tactics of the Opposition adopted in reference to Mr Mundella's bill, criti- cised the addresses at the Church Congress, and ex- pressed his approval of the work of the Welsh Land Commission. THE ESCAPE FROM CARNARVON GAOL.—On the 1st of April, Francis Ashby, who, it is alleged, had committed a daring burgliry at the Kingsland Presbyterian Manse, Holyhead, and was awaiting trial at the Anglesey Assizes, effected a very clever escape from Carnarvon Goal. He subse- quently entered the residence of Mr Roberts, solicitor, and exchanged his prison garb for another suit of clothing, making good his escape, and managing to successfully evade the police. A day or two ago a man was arrested at Colchester, and on his likeness being forwarded last night to Holyhead he was identified by the police as Ashby, who was wanted by the police in different parts of the country on charges of having committed several robberies in hotels and priv te houses since his escape from Carnarvon Gaol. Ashby was arrested at Colchester for stealing.210, and has been sent for trial at the Assizes. He is understood to have been at one time connected with the army, is a little over 30 years of age, and is of gentlemanly appearance.
THE COAL CRISIS.
THE COAL CRISIS. A specially called meeting of the Miners' Federa- tion of Great Britain was held on Thursday in Bir- mingham to discuss the proposal of the Federated Coalowners that the men should restart work at a re- duction of 15 per cent. off the 40 par crnt granted since 1888; and also to reoeive reports from the Sub- committee who attended the Mayoral Conference at Sheffield. The action of the Sub-committee was en- dorsed, and a vote of thanks to the mayors for con- vening'the meeting was unanimously carried. On the motion of the representatives of the Derbyshire miners, seconded by the delegates from Lancashire, the following resolution was unanimously adopted:- That this Conference, while recognising and appre. ciating the good intentions of the mayors, at the same time is still of opinion that no reduction of wages is necessary, and none can be accepted; and, further, we call upon men to stop away from any col- liery unless and until it is opened at the old rate of wages." The Conference then adjourned. A number of pits in Derbyshire have started work at the old rate of wages, and the Pilsley Colliery Company have decided to resume operations without insisting on a reduction. At Newcastle the representatives of the Durham miners waited on the coalowrers and asked for an advance of wages. The masters were willing to give an advance of 5 per cent. for three months, but the men objected to the advance for a limited period only, and the interview terminated without any satisfactory agreement. A mass meeting of miners was held on Thursday at Wrexham. Mr loan J. Williams, the agent for the Federation, addressed those present. A resolution was passed in favour of not accepting any reduction of the old rate of wages. At a meeting of the North Wales Coalowners' Association it was decided to publish notices at the pitheads, intimating that the miners may return to work on Monday next at a re- duction of 15 per cent, out of the 40 per cent. advar ce in 1888.
ANNUAL MEETING OF THE rOWYSLANL)…
ANNUAL MEETING OF THE rOWYSLANL) CLUB. The annual meeting of the Powysland Club was held on Monday in the Museum at Welshpool. The Earl of Powis presided, and there were present, ihe Yen. Archdeacon Thomas, the Rev D. Grimalci Davis, Colonel Harrison, Captain Mytton, Mr Stanley Leighton, M.P., the Rev Elias Owen, Mosgrd A. Howell, of Rhiewport, C. W. Williams Wynn, T. Pryce, cf Pentreheylin, R. E. Jones, of Cefn Bryn. talcb, D. P. Owen, Elijah Pryce, Mostyn Pryce, T. Simpson Jones, Dr Barrett, etc. The CHAIRMAN, who was received with applause, in opening the proceedings said he was glad to see such a good attendance, and he had especially to welcome Mr Stanley Leighton, who had come from Oawestry to support them. There were one or two points he wished to call to their minds. He had to remind them of the death of tbeir late secretary who managed their records for so many years. He was sure they would all feel what a loss his death was to the county. He did not wish to say more in the presence of his (the late secretary's) son, but he was sure the full sym- pathy of the Club was with the family in the distress they had suffered in the past year (hear, hear.) ThltY were glad to report that the Editor (Mr Lloyd), who bad sent in his resignation, had kindly undertaken to do the work again, and he had been promised assist- ance, which he was sure could be easily obtained (bear hear ) He had before him one or two papers which he happened to come acrose at Powis Castle, which he thought might be of interest to them. and he must take some slight credit to himself for having preser- ved them-(cheers)-for he found them as near the wastepaper basket as it was possible to go—(laugh- ter)—and the one related to the demolition of Mont- gomery Castle. He had often betore heard different reports of how the Castle had been demolished, but he believed those papers, which had not yet been printed, would set the matter at rest. The Castle was demolished by order of Parliament, who asked its owner Richasd Lord Herbert of Cherbury, to de- stroy it at his own expense, and they undertook to refund him the money for its destruction. As te the refunding of this money, as far as he could make out from the paper it appeared that it cost the owner J64,000 to destroy it, and at the same time he hap. pened to be in the unfortunate position of being in debt to the Parliament. The debt was not a very large one-he believed that it amounted to something like X200-and the generosity of Parliament was such that they undertook to wipe off his debt of X200 to them by cancelling their own debt of X4,000 to him (laughter.) Parliaments, they would see, were generous even in those days (laughter,) There were other papers relating to various other matters, and there was one paper which he thought would be of interest to the county. It was the protection given to the family of Richard Lord Herbert of Cherbury and his family at Llyssin, and it was signed by Fair. fax. He believed that it was a matter which would be of considerable interest to the cou:,ty (hear, hear.) He would be very happy to allow those papers to be looked over, in case any of them were considered worth publication (cheers.) There was one other matter which he would like to consult them upon. He was walking near the Strata Marcella ruin the other day, and he noticed that the horses in the field were damaging the stones there, by kicking them down. He wished to ask them if they thought it would be worth while making a little further protec- tion. He noticed particularly one or two column bases which had been kicked over. He was sure there would be very little difficulty in making a little further protection, and that there would be no diffi- culty in making- arrangements with the tenant to do it if they thought it worth while (cheers.) He did not think there was anything more he wished to speak to them upon. He would only congratulate them upon the past history of the Club, and hoped that in the future it would continue to do equally good work (hear, hear.) He did not think there were now so many matters of interest to be discovered in the county as there were formerly, but as in th" case of the little matter he had shown them, matters ot in terest to the county did sometimes crop up (ch era ) Archdeacon TaomAs then read the annual report as follows: The earnest hope expressed by the members of the Club ai ita annual meeting last year, that the impaired healtii of iti, Editor and principal Hon. Secretary might soon be restoruii, and enable him to fulfil his strong desirs that the publica- tions ahoald proceed with renewed vigour," has not bt.n fulfilled; and we have to-day to record our deep sense of the almost irreparable loss the Club has sustained in the re moval from amongst us of Mr Morris Charles Jones, to whom the Club owes not only its inception, but its remark- able success and usefulness through the long period of a quarter of a century. How largely the Montgomeryshire Collections have been indebted to his action and thought- ful mind is attested by the long list of articles, contributed by him to tho twenty-six volumes, enumerated on pa^e 218 of the May issue. The "School of Art" and the .Public Library, which may be said to have grown out of the Club, bear witness to his practical and philanthropic spirit' a*the Transactions do to his learning, while tho •' Museum," in which the Olub, the Collections, the School of Art, and the Library, all find a centre and a home, will stand as a permanent memorial of his service as one of the most useful 1 no 10m and loyal of the sons of Powyaland. Indeed, he has empha- sised his interest, if possible, by a legacy of £ 100 to the Museum. And here, at all events, we can justly apply the well known tribute, Si monumentum queris, circumspice." Nor is this by any means our only losts. The death of Mr Edward Rowley Morris has deprived us of another devoted antiquary, whoso many and valued contributions have long enriched our volumes, and of whose "History of the Parish of Kerry," a further instalment appeared in the last Part that has been issued of the Collections." Indeed, it was to him the Club mainly looked for the supply of material for its Record Department," which was taken up so warmly two years ago at the suggestion of Mr R. E. Jones, and of whose abundant store the report last year gave substantial evidence. And yet again we have to add the name of the Rev. Griffith Edwards, Rector of Llangadvan, to whose careful pen we owe the Histories of the Parishes of Garthbeibio, Llang&dvan.and Llanerfyl. And yet once more we have to record the loss of another distinguished scholar and ardent Welshman, Mr Howell W. Lloyd. whose contributions, sometimes directly, but more often indirectly, as the coadjutor of the late Mr J. Y. W. Lloyd, have enriched our pages. Other members who disap- pear fro 31 our list this year are the late Sir Love Jones- Parry, Bart., of Madryn, and the Rev. George Sandford, to whose many contributions the Club is greatly indebted. Tho year has, indeed, been one of unusual trial to the stability of the Powyeland Club, not only; from these heavy losses, but also from the difficulty of worthily supplying their vacant places. The Rev. W. Valentine lJoyd. the co secretary and learned coadjutor of Mr Morris C. Jones for the last ten years, whose knowledge of Powysland Family History is unsurpassed, and whose Sheriffs of Mont- gomeryshire." and other genealogical articles have thrown much light on the history of the county, has written to ex- press, with great regret, his inability from ill-health to sus- tain the responsibilities of editor and secretary, a r eg rut which none feel more keenly than your Council, and they join unanimonsly in appealing to him to reconsider his resig- nation, while they undertake to relieve him of as large a por- tion as possible of the actual labours of the post. With this view they recommend the appointment of (a) an Editorial Committee to consist of Archdeacon Thomas, the Rev, Elias Owen, M.A., F.S.A., Mr. R. E. Jones, Mr Richard Williams, F.R.H.S.; (b) a Secretary for secretarial duties, and they ask Mr Simpson Jones to accept that office; and (c) an Assistant Secretary to collect the aubecriptioas. In this way they believe that not only will the present difficulty be overcome, but that the original purpose of com- pleting the Parochial Histories may be carried out; and that the now Record Department will form an important and valuable feature; in the Collections of the future; so that whenever it may be thought advisable to close the publica- tions, there will be left for the men and women of Powys- land, monumentum aere perennius." The number of members at the present time is one hundred and forty-three, and it will. be seen from the state- ment of accounts that the Club is in a fairly good condition financially. Looking back on the long series of volumes of the Mont gomeryshire Collections," and the annual increasing diffi- culty of finding ready access to the large amount of informa- tion they contain, it appears to the Council to be highly de. sirable that the Index should be prepared iu order to make its treasures more available, and at the same time it would largely enhance the value of the publication. Into the vacancy on the Council caused by the death of Mr E. Rowley Morris, it is proposed that Deveretix Herbert Mytton, Esq., be elected. In moving its adoption the Archdeacon said he need not add one word to the feeling expressed by the President with regard to their late Secretary and Editor. Never before had they realised so much a on that occasion the debt they owed him for the labour and unceasing care and interest he had bestowed upon the Club year after year. It war when they were placed in a great difficulty, and did not even know until that morning how they would get out of it, that they fully realised the extent of his services to the Club (hear, hear). He was sure the words of the report and the expressions of the President were words and expressions in which they all most heartily joined. Nor need he add one word with regard to Mr Edward Rowley Mdrris, in whom Montgomeryshire had lost an antiquarian who was most devoted to his work, and to whom he thought they should have looked more than anyone else to fill tho gap caused by the-death of Mr Jones (hear, hear) He would like to add an expression of their deep obligation to Mr Sandford, who, though he did not live within the borders of Powysland, had from the earliest days of the Club shown the greatest interest in their work, and they owed to him many of their most interesting articles. It was his great age of 77 which had induced him to withdraw in the hope of rest. In that rest and retirement he had their most cordial sympathy, and their somewhat selfish hope that he would still be able to contribute to the pages of the Journal (hear, hear). As to Mr Valentine Lloyd, the co-secretary and co-editor with Mr Morris Jones, who wrote a few weeks ago to say it was impossible in his present state of health to continne the responsibilities of his position, that morning they had received his final reply consenting to act as editor on condition that he was relieved from the secre- tarial duties. He thought that the Club would very readily grant that condition in the confidence that Mr Lloyd would be able to devote more time than ever with the publications of the Club. No one who had read tha Sheriffs cf Montgomeryshire" and other articles bearing on family history, could be other than most grateful to him for continuing in his office-(cheers)-and all the more so because in the very last volume he had resumed his moat admirable aocounts of-the Sheriffs of Montgomery (cheers). In orJer to relieve him editorially the committee had proposed a list in which there wer« the names of the Rev Elias Owen-whom be was pleased to see present —(hear, hear),—and who had become a resident in their midst—Mr R. E. Jones, than whom he thought no one was more competent to take up the work of the second division, and Mr Richard Williams who had already shown his ability in the matter. They were also very glad that Mr Simpeon Jones had con- sented to act as secretary, and to continue the con- nection which had so long existed between Gungrog and the Powysland Museum (cheers). The number of members was very satisfactory, 143. When the Club started they had GO or 80 members. Since then they had grown very largely, and they might congratulate themselves that after a life of seven and twenty years they were in so good a position (cho- --rg). The report referred to the parochial histories, and expressed a hope that they might be carriod out. There were some parishes, very important ones too, that had not yet liao their story told in the columns of the Tran- bactione. and he earnestly hoped that the gap would be supplied. He was glad to announce that that morning he bad received a promise from one of their members that he would undertake the work of record- ing the history of Llanc'ysilio (cheers). He referred to Mr Pryou of Pentrelieyjin (cheers). Mr Pryce had also suggested another idea, which he hoped the Club would in future, if not immediately, take into consid- eration. It was the copying out of the parochial registers of the county—(hear, hear)—and Mr Pryoe had shewn his loyalty and goodwill to the Club by undertaking to copy his (the spt sker',s) registers, for which he was very grateful to him. He hoped the time would come when the registers of every parish in the county would be copied out (hear, hear). It wouid require to be done on some common stated form, so that every parish might be in the fame form. Then with regard to the index. At the end of the 14th volume there was a useiul index, but they hoped to be able before long to complete the index for the whole series (hear, hear). The Rev D. GRIMALDI Dzvls. in seconding the motion, said he cordially endorsed what Archdeacon Thomas had said with regard to the great loss they had sustained during the past year in the death of their most indefatigable secretary, Mr Morris Charles Jones. He had had ample means cf judging and observing the great zeal, energy, and self-sacrifice which he displayed on all occasions to further the good of Welshpool and the county of Montgomery. He felt quite certain it would be a long time before the loss they had sustained by his death would be supplied. He considered the late Mr Jones one of the foremost of the sons of Montgomeryshire—(hear, hear) and a man who, all his lite, devoted himself to the good of his native county, more especially in his last years. As long as that building, with its museum and library remained, he felt certain Mr Morris Charles Jones could have no better memorial (bear, hear). Personally he felt his loss most keenly. He believed he had lost one of the best friends he 6VPr had in the pariah, and one of his firmest and strongest supporters (cheers). They had in Mr Rowley Morris, too, lost an excellent member of the Club, but he felt very hopeful that with the help of those gentlemen who had been named to succeed their late friends, that the club would go on prosper- ing. He thought it was a great credit to the county that had a Club like that. The work it had done would be a most valuable record of the county (oijeers).-The motion was carried unanimously. Mr R. E. JONES then read the report of the Record department. They regretted that little progress had been made in the past year in the work of continuing the catalogue of documents relating to Montgomery- shire deposited in the Record Office, in consequence ef the illness and death of Mr Rowley Morris, to whom the execution of the work had been entrusted. A further portion of the index to the Inquisitions Post mortem, was however, received from him short- ly before his decease, and this portion of the cata- iogue was now complete. ILIS was the last work in wnich Mr Rowley Morris was engaged. The com- mittee desired to express their cieep sense of the value of the help which he gave to them so willingly, and the fiteiing of profound regret with which they w I regarded his loss. The sum of .£301311 had been ex- pended up to the present time, and there remained a balance in the handa of the treasurer. Uncollected subscriptions amounted to £ 9. The further con- tinuance of the work in which the ccmmittee were .1 .-ed was greatty to be des:rjd, aod would receive their early attention, but it would necessarily depend on a renewal of the subscriptions to the special fund, for which they earnestly ask. In moving the adop- tion of the report Mr Jones said he begged to repeat that which the report stated—the hope that those who had kindly given subscriptions in the past would kindly renew them (hear, hear). The cost of carrying out that work would, he feared, be greatly increased, as the work done by Mr Morris could not be done by any other man on anything like the sar-c WM, but if the members of the club would only furnish them with money they hoped sooner or later to do that which they had undertaken to do. He felt quite sare that, although it might not be interesting reading, it would be of the utmost value to the antiquaries of that county (hear, hear). Capt. MYTTON seconded the motion, and said he joined with the other members of the Club in their regret at the death of Mr Rowley Morris, who devoted so much of his time and talent to trying to complete the records. By his death they were placed in a very unfortunate position, but they might hope that some young person would rise up to complete the work he had so ably begun (hear, hear). The report was adopted unanimously. The CHAIRMAN said it had fallen to his lot to propose a vote of condolence with Mrs Morris C. Jones and her family at Gungrog. He had men- tioned in his opening address, and Archdeacon Thomas had said how sensible the Club was of the loss they had sustained, but he thought they might couple with that the fact that in Mr Morris Jones they had lost a man who was always ready to help in all good works affecting that county and town. On this account, and because Mr Jones had for many years been their neighbour, he asked them to adopt that vote of condolence. He did not think it neces- sary to say more. He felt that sympathy was best expressed in a few words. He therefore asked them to adopt the motion. Dr BARRETT, in seconding the motion, said he agreed with his lordship that the occasion was one for sympathy and condolence, and not for many worde. Mr Jones's deeds were known to them, and his works were around them (cheers). The vote was agreed to. The Rev ELIAS OWEN said he had to propose a vote of condolenco with Mrs Rowley Morris and family. Unfortunately, they had that year to mourn the leas of those who had been with them a large number of years. Humanly speaking, life did not last long, and still they must deeply regret those who had gone before. He had had the pleasure of a long acquaintance with Mr Rowley Morris-more than a score of years-and during that time he had noticed how much he had done for the county, and how hard he had been working for it. But that was only the public side of the man's character, and when they come to the loss the family had sustained it was a very different matter. The family must feel the loss very much more than they could feel it. It was possible that a successor might be found to do the work in connection with the Club, but a father once lost, was lost for ever. He was therefore sure that they felt the most heartfelt sympathy with the bereaved lady and her family. Mr Morris had left a clever family behind him, especially one of his daughters, whom he knew to be remarlaably clever. It vi a3 quite possible that this lady might carry on the labours of her father. She assisted him con- siderably in his literary work and he merely threw this cut as a suggestion. Mr ELIJAH PRYCE seconded the motion, which was agreed to. Mr SIMPSON JONES said he had only bad a list of the funds from the treasurer that morning, and it was not a very correct list. It seemed that the sub- scriptions and arrears due to the Club amounted to X177 odd, and of that t68 only had been received, so that the arrears amounted to .£109. They had in the oank at the present time X110, so that if the ariears came in the Club would have about.2200 to its credit (hear, hear). Mr Jones then read the report of the Science and Art Department. The Rev ELIAS OWEN asked if the pupil teachers of the district were allowed to attend the teachers' olasses free of cost. The Rev D. GRIMALDI DAVIS said the managers of the National Schools paid a certain sum for the pupil teachers. The Rev ELIAS OWEN said in that case the result was not very satisfactory, seeing that all failed in perspective. The whole thing wantod rubbing up a little. Mr T. PRYra proposed the adoption of the report. Mr MOSTYN PRYCE seconded the motion, and agreed with what had been said by previous speakers in reference to the late Mr M. C. Jones and Mr Rowley Morris Fortunately, he continued, they had Mr W. Valentine Lloyd (hear, hear). It was very fortunate for them that Mr Lloyd had been spared! to continue his office, as there was no one who could be better inforn.ed than he was in the by-gone annals of the county (hear, hear). It was also a source of gratification to have Lord Powis present in the chair (cheers). They were under a very great obligation to him for coming there that day (cheers). The report was then passed, Mr S. LEIGHTON, M.P., proposed the appointment of a committee, consisting of Archdeacon Thomas, Mr R. E. Jones, Dr. Barrett, Colonel Harrison, the treasurer and the secretary, to enquire into certain details, including the storage of books, which had become too numerous for their shelves, the payment of bille, the disposal of surplus volumes, the rela- tionship of the Club with the Free Library tbe grant ci' £ 5 to che Art Class- 8, Rodney's Pillar', the strata Marcella excavations, the examination of the papers, lo tbe publication of which Lord Powis had strata Marcella excavations, the examination of the papers. to the publication of which Lord Powis had consented, a, d tLe arrD6' ments of the Museum. He Wished to support what the Archdeacon had said, as to the publication of the parochial registers. It was a matter quite within the domain of such a Society, and he thought they ..hou:d not only be published in the Transactions, but separately. and that copies would be tient to the cleig)man of each pnish. In addition to the registers there was a iarlle number of parish books, which were very iD- teresiing, and he hvpAd their local antiquaries would not forget that there was a storehouse of interest in those parochial books. Those books should, he thought, be published separately from the registers, and to add to their interest they should be illustrated, and the registers mipht b" illustrated with pictures of t' e church and tb", monuments in it. Mr D. P. OWEN akE-d what Were the relations of the Corp-oration and rhe Club as to the use of the Club premises and the CHAIRMAN said the matter would be looked into by the proposed committee. The Rev. ELIAS OWEN seconded the motion, which was carried. Archdeacon THOMAS, in the absence of Mr G. D. Harrison, brought forward the question of the condition of Rodney's Pillar on the Breidden. It was not,"nte.-dcd as Mr Leighton suggested to bring the Pillar down there, but be was afraid if some- thing was not done soon it tvculd come down itself (laughter). He could not tell why the Pillar was erected in Montgomeryshire, but be believed it was the only memorial of that able and distinguished commander. Mr LFIGHTON said there was one in Jamaica. Archdeacon THOMAS said he was thinking of this country. There was a place close by called Belle Isle, and though it might be a wi'd idea, it was possibly that because that island was seised by Admiral Rodney the gotd people of Montgomeryshire erected the Pillar about 1784. The Pillar appeared to have been repaired about 1847. but at presei t it was in a very dangerous state. The lightning ooa- ductor on the Pillar was broken in the micdle. Mr Watkin of Weishpool had examined the Pilar, and reported that half of the top below the bail was cot away, and he could not understand how thn ball was sustained. There was a very bad defect half way up the shaft, which would require under-building, and grouting in cement, and all tLe Pillar needed pointing and errout.ing in cement. Mr Dovaston had also written to Mr Harrison offering to subscribe JB3 towards the repair of the Pillar (cheers). He hoped the Committee would consider the matter, and be able to wive the Pillar ^cheers). Mr D. P. OWEN said his father told him the Pillar was erected on the Breidden because Admiral Benbow was born at Criggion. There was an inn at Criggicn called the "Admiral Benbow (laughter). Mr LEIGHTON said he had never before heard the scggestion that Admiral Benbow was born at Criirgion (laughter). He belonged to a well knows Somersetshire family. Archdeacon THOMAS said what was being done was done with the concurrence of the owner of the Breidden, Mr Valentine Vickers. He thought they should empower the Committee to ascertain the poet of making the Pillar secure. The CHAIRMAN said it was suggested to him that the County Council might like to take the matter up as it was a public monument. It was finally decided to leave the matter in the hands of the Committee, and the meeting rloeert with a vote of thanks to the Chairman, proposed by Col. HARRISON, seconded by Dr. BABRETT.

GIRLS OF THE RIGHT SORT.
GIRLS OF THE RIGHT SORT. "My caughter, unless you can work the ship off the coast, he will.Boon strike the rocks, and we all be lo, So said the captain of a fine merchant vessel to his diughter. He was right; it was their only ebanoe. T ie bark Anina, 700 tons, was bound from Cuxhaven t) Rio with a general cargo. She had scarcely left port when the captain was disabled by a broken leg A mutiny followed. Under threat of bad weather the Anina anchored in a bight of a bay on the danger- ous coast of Cornwall. Here the officers and all of the crew deserted. A furious cyclonic south-west gale arose. The anchors dragged, and the girl burned a flare on deck. The lifeboat responded, bat was staved against the ship's eido by a sea. All the boat s crew were lost except the coxswain who gained the deck, He was rok a sailor, yet with him alosa snder her orders, this irl, who was a sailor, »— both cables, set some headsatf, and got out into open. It was touch and go, but true grit won. Three weeks longer the girl commanded before help came. Yet it did fir ally, and no did the wedding of the handsome young coxswain and the oaptain'g bsautiful and heroic daughter. And yet there are some fools left who say we must look to men chiefly for courage and intelligence. Stuff and nonsense! Any woman will scream when she sees a moise (that's mere nerves), and ten minutes later she will meet disaster or death with a quiet emi!e. Then, too, women have a genius foe throwing in a suggestion exactly when it is wanted. A man writes this way :—" I came home dejected," 80 he goes on, and didn't know what to do; but my daughter said-" But wait a minute. Before we hear what his daughter said, let's have his stirj from tbostait, shipshape and Bristol fashicn. He says: "In Deoember, 1890,1 was suddenly taken one day with an excruciating pain in the pit of the stomach and in the right side. For over twelve hours I could neither sit nor lie down. The medical man who examined me gave me some medicine, but on the second day jaundice set in, and from that time I suffered from a similar attack about once every three weeks. Every remedy was tried without avail; nothing did the slightest good. The kidney secretion was something frightful, being a mass of matter, blood, and bile. This continued five months, and I grew weaker and thinner every day. My friends thought nothing eould save me. Many urged me to have farther advice, as at this time the secretions were much worse, and the motions resembled white clay. Another attack came on, and as I was daily getting worse, I said, I will see the doctor first, and if he can do me do good, I will seek further medical help.' Accordingly I went to see him, but he was from home, and would not return until late at night. I came home dejected and did not know what to do, but my daughter said* Why don't you try Mother Seigel's Curative Syrnp P We hear that it has cured so many. If it does you no good, it will do no harm.' Well,' I said to her, I will try a bottle.' I then began to take it, and oh! how thankful I afterwards was, for on the third day I could see such a change. The secretion, instead of being nothing but corruption, became clear, and the motions a healthy colour. Fiom that time I daily gained health and strength, and a short time I was as well as ever in my life, and have had no return of the disease. "I can, therefore, speak of this medicine in the highest terms, for, under God's blessing, it cured me when nothing else had the slightest effect." The above communication is from a business man of high character in the county of Brecon. For especial reasons he desires his name to be withheld for the present, but we freely pledge our reputation for the truth of his statemtnt. The date is February 12, 1892. The attacks which would probably have soon ended his life were of severe kidney and liver congestion, growing out of profound indigestion and dyspepsia. His system was flooded with bile acid poisons, and he may thank Heaven for having a daughter who made the right suggestion ata critical lugoarage and sense she is like the other noble girl who saved her father's ship from wreck while he lay helplese in his cabin. Success attend them in their own life voyages, say we.
