CANON HICKS' VIEW ON BAZAARS. On Saturday Canon Hicks, of Lincoln, opened a sale of work at Greenfield (Holywell) in aid of the fund for the completion of Greenfield Church by the erection of a chancel and vestry, which will cost £ 700, of which ±>100 still re- mains to be raised. In the course of his re- marks Canon Hicks said1 he wa-i not over fond of bazaars, with which was usually associated fortune-telling and other side-shows. But a sale of work was quite different because it waa the moans of banding together Churohpeople to work in parish work, and it entablod those who had not much money to give to God their time, which waa equally acceptable to him. Though he was not fond, of side-shows, he was extremely iOlnd of sales of work, because he thought they did so much good.

THE BUDGET. The Budget this year is in accordance with general expectation; there is no new taxa- tion, and there is no remission of taxation. The absence of new taxation is not due to the absence of increased expenditure, but to the enormous increase in the yield of the taxes imposed in the last Budget now that they come into full operation over a complete year. Just as the yield of those taxes wiU now swell to its true proportion, so will the evil effects and crushing burden of those taxea now begin to become fully apparent. Mr Lloyd George estimates that he wCl in the current year receive £ 30,046,000 in respect of the revenue belonging to last year, the col- lection of which was delayed. Out of this sum he has to mate good a realised deficit on last year's accounts amounting to .£26,2.t8,COO and deferred payments amount- ing to £ 825,000—. £ 27,073,000 in all. He, therefore, has a surplus of = £ 2,973.000 to use in balancing this year's accounts. Of this sum £ 2,900,000 is due to the further suspen- sion of the repayment of debt to which the Government had recourse early in the present Session. And the whole 12,973,01)0, had it been a realised surplus on March 31st, 1910, would in accordance with statute, have gone to the old Sinking Fund for the reduction of the National Debt. However, Air Lloyd George is able to apply it to meet the esti- mated expenditure proper to 1910-11, namely, £ 171,857,000; and, as the estimated revenue proper to 1910-11 only Amounts to £ 1^9,745,000, he is, by its means enabled to turn a deficit of £ 2,112,000 into a surplus of £ 861,000. Out of this surplus he proroses to spend £ 102,000— £ 83,000 in respect of last year and .219,000 in respect of this Yea-T- in making good the shrinkage he has created in the '"Whisky Money," which goes to local authorities for technical education and other purposes; and £ 450,000 in meeting the Ex- chequer's share of the cost for three months from January 1st, 1911, of the removal of the pauper disqualification for Old Age Pensions. There is talus left an estimated surplus of £ 309,000 on the accounts closing on March 31st, 1911. Apart from the enormous increase of ex- penditure, there are several points in the Bud- get on which attention should be concen- trated. The fixed debt charge is restored to only X24,500,000, as against the X28,000,000 at which the Unionist Govern.m-ent left i,t. A low Sinking Fund and a high income tax thus deprives us of both our great financial weouroes in ciise of emergency. It is diffi- cult to belies that the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer really bases his modest estimate on sound grounds when he says that the delay in parsing last year's Budget will cause a loss to the revenue of this year to the amount of three millions in respect of income tax and sirper-tax. The Budget was passed at the end of April, aaid, as the greater part of the tax is always collected in the last quarter of tfhe financial year, it seems passing strange that there should be amy great difficulty in getting it in- Possibly Mr Lloyd George's advisers may have reasons other than those given by him for suggesting a peculiarly modest estimate of the yield of the income tax. They may well suspect that the high Tate has advanced to a point at which it re- tards the growth of income and oversteps the Kmft. of productiveness, and also, perhaps, that the added inoeafcive of the super-tax to evasion may at least delay collection. Peculiar interest, of oorrree, attaches to the retention of the extra 3e 9d on spirits, not only on Unsocial but also on political grounds, since it embarrasses Mx Redmond's position not a little. Financially the extra. duty has'been a ghastly failure, not to men- tion its crusliing effect on a legitimate trade giving large employment. The country will be interested to see that the mew lamd duties are estimated to produce YAW,000 this year, of which £350,000 comes from the Mineral rJtjghts duty, which is not properly a land value vrluty at all, but an additional income tax on a particular form of property. As smpplementairy estimat-es to the tune of A",ooo thaw, recently been presented for the cost of vainatian amd cotlection in re- spect of these duties; we shall all be duly im- pressed with their value- to tihe nation.
Where Work and Wages go. 1 Mr Lloyd George, in the course of his Bud- get speech, referred to our returning trade jvrosperity and prophesied a boom year. It is true that we are sharing in the prosperity that has set in the world over, but tixhose who watch foreign trade returns cannot have failed to observe that our protected rivals are securing a very substantial B-hare also. In the meantime, the following figures, com- piled from the London Customs Bails of Entry, ,Ixe nteresting as showing how we are paying rvway wage.3 to foreigners in order that no- thing may be lacking on our. part to secure them a boom year. The figures show some of our imports of manufactured goods into the Port of London betwe, n June 18th and June 29th :—Apparel, .£13.401; carpets and rugs, £ 12,623; cottons, £ 61,237; electrical goods, §28,498; glass, £ 22,329; gloves, £ 24,435; 'lardware, £ 15,547; hosiery, £ 26,297; instru- ments (scientific), £ 15,751; lace, £ 15,591; 1 X50,861; mot?or ?inw, ;Cl4,240; machinery, 6rs and part. £ 176,785; silk, S67,193; wood, 123,556; and woollens, £ 28,949.
Welsh Industries. Since its inception twelve years ago the Welsh Industries Association, supported as it is by influential ladies and gentlemen, has done excellent work in fostering the arte and crafts of Wal-es, and by means of exhibitions and sales finding profitable markets for the products of the home workers. At the an- nual meeting held at Viscount Tredegar's Londoji residence on Friday encouraging re- ports were presented, showing the progress of the various branches during the past year. It is gratifying to mote that at the different sales held under the auspices of the Associa- tion there has been a good demand for Welsh goods, which found ready purchasers. In- cidentally references were made to the basket- weaving industry in Cirnarvon and to the toy-making conduded at Trefnant by Miss Mainwaring a.nd Miss Mary Heaton. The Association is in a sound financial position, the accounts at the close of last year show- ing a credit balance of .£570.
Cost of the Land Taxes. The appearance of a Supplementary Esti- mate for the Inland Revenue Department to meet the expends of the collection of the new land taxes and of the necessary valuation will open the eyes of the public to the finan- cial worthlessnese of Mr Lloyd George's precious scheme. The Supplementary Esti- mate amounts to £ 480,000. That is what the nation has to pay this year out of the public puree. There is no knowing how much the unfortunate owners, buyers, and sellers of land and houses will have to pay out of their private pockets in complying with all the re- gulations imposed. The Mineral Rights Duty is not properly a Land Values Duty at all, but an additional income tax on a particular form of property; and its collection does not involve valuation, the expenditure in respect of which is incurred on account of the In- crement, Undeveloped Land, and Reversion Duties. These three duties are estimated to produce between them X250,000 in the current year, 1910-11! —ej>
The Eisteddfod Art Exhibition. One of the most intfre-sting adjuncts to the National Eisteddfod at Colwyn Bay this year will be the art exhibition. A representative collection of distinctively Walsh objects would be as attractive as it would be useful in throwing light on the history and ideals past and present of the Welsh people. It is no easy task to get together such a collection, but the difficulties would soon be overcome if those who possesc4 articles of Welsh historical interest would alilow them to be placed in the loan section of the exhibition. In an- otJier column we publish a letter froyn the honorary secretaries appealing to tho patriotic spirit of ladies and gentlemen wfho may be in a position to help to make the exhibition a success. We trust that there will be a ready response to this appeal, and that strenuous efforts will be made by all interested in the movement to assist in making the exhibition worthy of the occasion.
Conway and the Territorials. It is a disappointment and a loss to Conway that the Territorials are not encamiping on the Morfa this year, and it has been the sub- ject of much conjecture why the military authorities decided that the Special Reserve only should go under canvas this summer. However, the explanation is forthcoming in the correspondence read at Wednesday's meet- mg of the Conway Town Council. If th-e.re was an the minds of some any apprehen- sion that the absence of the Territorials was attributable to an error of omis&ion or com- mission on the part of the Town Council, such a notion is dispelled by the statement of the General Officer that "the sole reason for not using the camp on this occasion was its un- euitability for the training of a division as a whole. We can only hope that next year will Boe the Territorials back again. The Morfa is undoubtedly an admirable camping ground, and the Conway Corporation have expended large sums of money in drainage and protective works on the place, an ex- penditure, which, as the Mayor points out in his letter to Mr Haldane, the local authority incurred on the faith of the camp being con- tinued there.

ARWYSTLI DEANERY CHORAL UNION. The annual festival of the Choral Union of the Churches in the Arwystli Dea-ncry was held in Carno Parish Church on Wednesday week. Ninio Churches were represented in the united choir. The festival commenced with a celebration of the Holy Communion, at eight a.m., the Vicar being the celebrant. At three p.m., the Rev. Hugh Richards (vicar of Carno), the conductor, marshalled the singers for his re- hearsal. It was soon apparent tha.t pre- liminary practice was the forerun-ner of a successful gathering. Miss Lena Davies (Llanidloes) presided at the piano, Mr Nugent Morgan (Llandinam) at the organ, Mrs Richards (Carno) was the violinist, and Mr John Morris (Newtown) played the comet. Immediately after the rehearsal the Festival Committee provided the choirs with tea. Mrs Wilson (Aleppo Merchant Hotel) was the caterer, and supplied an excellent tea. After the tea the gardens at the AJeppo and the Vi?? pen to the e-h<)irs. f;??,o thr<)wn o a, was held at 5.30 p.m., and the following order was observed: Intoners, Rev. D. J.

Seeinjf that weekly contract tickets are issued for 12s 6d, available for all advertised sailings, also extended period contracts at a sKghtly increased rate, there should be a great demand for these tickets for those doe- [ airons of combining health with pleasure.
PLAIN TALKS ON TARIFF REFORM. A TALK ON TAXATION. (BY S. SKELHORN). The event of the past week has been the introduction of Mr Lloyd George's second Budget, which suggests my subject for to- day's "Plain Talk." It is perfectly clear -.hat the State must be provided with the revenue necessary to carry on the work of the Govern- ment, such as National Defence, Old Age Pensions, and so on. You will also agree that the best system of taxation is one ihat falls with least weight upon the general ooiii- nrunity, amd does not interfere with the- t. re- ductive power of the country. This ds a fair test of any method of taxation. How does "Free Trade" taxation stand this test? "FREE TRADE" TAXATION. Under "Free Trade" we raise a large part of our .revenue from Customs duties on non- competitive food, drink, and tobacco ta^es, which fall entirely upon the consumer, be- cause when we do not produce a thing in + i-t; i country we must in the long run pay my duties charged on it, or go without. An- other evil connected with this system is -Ihat taxation falls heaviest where it should !>e lightest, upon the necessaries of life, such as tea and sugar, and as the duty on these articles is levied by weight, it falls with ex- ceptional severity on inferior qualities of goods which a.re mainly consumed bv the poor. Besides Ithis, "Free Trade" taxation is becoming 'less and less able to meet tho increa-sing demands of the country, and henco free traders take up semi-Socialist legislaticn wh-ich has the effect of driving capital from our shores, thus leading to unemployment and reduced national production. TARIFF REFORM AND REVENUE. Is (there any better method of raisinpr re- venue than this? Well, Mr Asquitih has ad- mitted that "there is an alternative," but there is only one, a-ld that is a tariff. Tariff Reformers propose to broaden the basis of taxation, by which they mean changing 11e character of our existing tariff so that Dr stead of imposing J.ew heavy duties on non- competitive goods, duties which ws are com- pelled to pay ourselves, we should have a system of many light duties on competitive foreigner would pay. If he refused to pay, tho goods would be kept out, which won Li mean more work and more wages for our own people. The great value therefore of Tariff Reform from this standpoint lies in the double power of raising revenue bv the email duty on such goods as come in, which the foreigner wouJd pay, and in the addi- tionaJ home production created to supplysue-a articles as might be fchut out, which produc- tion would pay its toll to the Exchequer through all the various taxes direct and in- direct already existing.

NET FISHING AT LLAN- FAIRFECHAN. IMPORTANT CASE TO FiSHERMEN. At Bangor Petty Ses-aons, on Tuesday, before 'M,r W. Pug-he and other magistrates, Robert Moses Williams, quarrymain, Ayrston Villa, L;.a.n- fairfeohan. was charged, at the instance of ihe Corrway Fishery Board, with using a net to take salmon without a licence within the district of tho Board at Llanfairfeicihan. Mr AJlard, LLan-rwst, ojetrk to the Fishery B'oaaxi. p'roseciutsd. and aaiid that one of the offi- cers of the Lancashire and Western Sea Fisherioj Board s'aw the defond-ant dirawin.g a net on the beaoh at Llanfairfecthian. He examined the net, which complied with the bye-laws of the com- mittee, but with regard to saiimon it should have been ibn 8-inch mesh. In tho defendant's ba.g the officer found a sfcdmon, and he refused to give it up. M,r Iturruey Wiliiams. for the defence, re- marked that it was the first prosecution of its krind at Lja.nfiairfechan. He asked that the district should be clearly defined, and Mr Allard did' fiJO. Evidence was given by W. R. M'aitthews, an officer of the Lancashire and, Western Sea Fish- eries Board, that he wan on duty on .the Lava n Saindis ncar Liilanfiafirfeoh-an wihen he daw tho defendant, along with two others, drawing the net on the beach at L'.anfaiTfcchan. The net he was using was a 7-inch draw met, and- he ad- mitted he was the owner of it. Witness, find- ing a 71b. salmon in the defendant's bag, asked ,him for it, a,,id he roptied, "No foar, you won't get and -h-o T?e ed, into the water with 't. tiff Witness toid him the net was ail right for flat- fish, but not for elaLmon. Cross-ex-amined: Witness admitted he did not see defendant working the not. Mr Rumeey Willi aims: But you are charging him with using the net?—Yes, because he was the owner of it. Witness did not know whether the Boaa-d had issued a warning to fishermen at Oanfaiirfocfean. Mr Rttmsey Williams submitted theflo was no case agairuvt the defendant as to using the net. which, according to prosecution's own showing, was niot used. The Bench, however, decilded to hetar the de- fence. and the defendant gave eviidenoe that he lent the net to two men named H. Wm. Hughes and Griffith Owen Jones, andl he was watching thean working it. He denied that he assisted in using the net, and he refused to give the salimon up because it did not belong to him. The present wias the first tame he had heard of any objection by the Board. Cross-examined: Defendant said he did not know it was iKegal to fi-h for salmon within the district of the Board waliihaut a licence. Ho had never caught a eaknon before. Hug-h Wm. Hughes, Mona-ternace, Gerazitm, said the defendant did not help hiiui to use the net at all. Witness took the sailmon home, and he and his family ate it (laughter). Mr Allard: So you oaught the salmon ? Witness: No; the net oaught the salmon (Laughter). The Bench found thieae was not suffici-ent evi- dence to convict, but it was hoped the caGe would act as a warning- Mr Thomas Roberts (a magistrate) siaid he had lived on the border of the river in question far thirty years, and he had no idea the area, of the Conway Board ex- tended so far. Mr Rumsoy William-3 remarked that it was understood bhe Irimiit of the Board's area was the buoy off Pemnnaenbach. Ho had witnesses to show they had been fishing for saitlmon at Llanfaiinfeahan for thirty years ignor- ant ot the Loot they were doioig wrpng.

At the opening of the proceedings Lord Tre- degar moved a vote of condolence with the King, Queen Mary, Queen Alexandra, and the Royal Family on the death of King Edward, which was passed by all those present rising in silence. PROGRESS DURING THE PAST YEAR. The report of the Association for the past year, which was read by Mrs Mashiter (formerly known as Mrs Holme, her husband having now changed his name in pursuance of royal licence), gave a detailed account of the progress of the various branches. The year, without any great advancement, had shown steady progress in many directions. At the London sale, which was opened by the Marchioness of Bute, Welsh goods were sold to the amount of £800, and the ex- penses of the two days were fully covered by the 'L -sion money, so that a small balance was dmi, available for the use of the central fund. Spe- cial attention was callcd to the forthcoming ex- hibition and sale at Newport in October. A strong local committee has been formed, with f ord Trede, president ,rd the Duchess of -ar as Eeaufort as ebalirman of the T,adi?!s' In connection with local industries particular praise was accorded to the productions ot the Cardiff and Monmouth Schools of Embroidery and Lace. The extension of the basket-weaving industry in Carnarvon (where 3756 baskets were made last year) was mentioned, and the toy- making conducted at Trefnant by Miss Main- waring and Miss Mary Heaton was favourably noticed. On the motion of Sir D. Brynmor Jones, sec- onded by Lord Aberdare. the report was adopted. THE FINANCES. Mr Oliver Jones submitted the financial state- ment for the year, which showed a balance of £ 570 to tho credit of the Association, and the report was adopted on the proposal of Colonel I o?ided by l?Ir Ernest Ilelm(. Wyndhai-n Quin, see The former, refori?'DI to Lady Eva,'s invest:tiire at the London Eist'(,TIfo(l Gorsedd as "Eos -?-?or- gamvg," said that she resembled the nightingale in the fact that she did not cease to sing the praises of the progress of the Welsh Industries Association even in the night. A cordial vote of thanks to Lord Tredegar for presiding and for granting tho use of his house for the purpose of the meeting was accorded with acclamation, on the proposal of Lady Eva Wvndham Quin, seconded by Lady Maitland. On the proposal of Sir Vincent Evans, seconded by Mr Godfrey Clark, Mrs Mashiter was most cordially thanked for her valuable services as hon secretary.

MUSICAL NOTES. By Peter Edwards, Mus. Bac. (Pedr Alaiv). Rhyl. WELSH DIPLOMAS. Of late years—and especially since the ser- vices of English musicians have been rc qurisitionoo at our National Eisteddfodau— the English press has stated very plainly what it thought of the status of Welsh music. It has pointed out, time after time, that al- though the Welsh people possess musical talent, it has not yet learnt how to use it properly; it has repeated that even the National Eisteddfod—judging by results—lias not helped to develop our musical taste so as to make us allround musicians. Of course, the Eisteddfod was meant to be, and it is, more of a meeting placed for friendly rivalry in poetry, literature, and music, rather than a Musical Academy. Therefore, too much must not be expected of it. Some English adjudicators are, I think, to blame for, as it were, throwing dust in the eyes of our choirs -lec.ding them, in years gone by, to believe they were superior to all others, and thus encouraging -a thing so fatal to all progress. Latterly they have realised that many English choirs are as good as they, and that prizes at the Eisteddfod are often lost through want of sufficient and thorough preparation. The English choirs have, and axe, as a rule conductcd by men who are themselves well-trained, men shoulder-high above those whom they direct. Welsh conductors also must be such. Upon the subject of preparation "Musical News" pi-ini,s t fc,l 1,e whi-ch wejl de-?,exvc?s at- t,en,t,.oii. The b?livardnk,,ss of WaJes in ma;tt,-rs musical, notwit?hstanddn,- tlie exe-ell- ent raw n?.,aterial in the Pxincip.Ulty, has 4?Dn- been recognised, not only by the Saxon out- sider, but by the more thoughtful of the Welsh themselves. The self-complacency of Wales has received several severe shocks of late years, and it has been increasing1-- felt that some means should be adopted by way of promoting a wider outlook, a higher standard, and an increased efficiency. Some interest, therefore, attaches to the recent announce- ment that UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, CARDIFF, had instituted a course of musical study, covering two years, and embracing practical as well as theoretical music, while at the end of the two year's students might, on passing an examination, receive a diploma testifying to their efficiency. As far as it goes, this is a satisfactory scheme. It must make for good .that students should receive a thorough and systematic training, and no doubt the course at Cardiff will prove a boon to many Welshmen who but for it would be unable to present themselves at any of the older centres of instruction. O11 the other hand, however, it would most decidedly be detrimental, if not fatal, to the ufltimate pTogre-ss of music in Wales, if it should encourage provincialism at the expense of cosmopolitanism. What Wales needs, though she does not recognise it, is a knowledge of MUSIC OUTSIDE HER OWN BORDERS, and that is what we fear the Cardiff course will not tend to encourage. The musical salvation of Wades will not proceed from within. Welsh deficiencies, patent as they might be, were never accepted as facts, so long a6 the critics were Englishmen, but of late ye are there has been a growing tendency to recognise the real state of affairs, owing to two causes. The first, is that Welsh musicians who had come to London for pur- poses of study, had had. their eyes opened, and with a rilear-sightednoss and courage which did them credit had not feared to tell their fellow-countrymeu at home the naked truth, unpalatable though it might be. Added to this, came the awakening due to the defeats of Welsh choirs by English choirs on what the former thought to be their own peculiar vantage ground. There is at present a healthful spirit of di-scoiitent n Wales, which is pregnant with hope foT the future, a.rd we trust that however much the Cardiff scheme may be supported, it will not be allowed to became the Ultima Thulo of Welsh aspirations. Tho greatest need of ,?-noivlk-.dge of whit music i; W?aL,8 is the I outside her own borders. One is inclined to doubt this last assertion. It might be corrected by stating that one of the needs of Welsh people, namely the ordinary lovers of music such as choristers, young amateur singers, etc., is knowledge of good music other than its own. Many Welsh musicians know well what is going on "over M thq) boxdexs," and sucemd in br' -lng some of the 1,%t.Est music to the ..till" of the?T fellow- countrymen. The other great need—if not the greatest -in Wales is orchestras. What with the knowledge which is imparted in orchestral music at Aberystwyth, Cardiff, etc., I .rd the prizes which are offered for playing at the leading Eisteddfodau, some advance is being made in this direction but some scheme is wanted, whereby orchestras can be formed in various centres. Will not the National Eisteddfod reserve a portion of its profits (if any), assisted by t-lie Eisteddfod Association, and aided by subscriptions., for the purpose of helping local musicians to purchase in- struments.? Some combined effort; is reoucred in such a matter. A committee and officials should be appointed to consider and to carry out sncli a scheme. They could meet annual- Iv diirin.?T the NttiDnal Eisted?Uod weelc. he 0'a,i-n-ot Cominit?tC,3 of -ti 1910 Nati<)ii-al wp- it,; way to d,,sc-Lios matter and to .recommend it for consideration by the Executive Committee? < < a MR LEWYS JAMES. This young Welsh vocalist is working his way to the front. When I saw him, a short time ago, as Valentine in Faust, he was really excellent—as then reported in this coJumn- both as singer and actor. Appearing the other dav as Figaro in Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro, he created an excellent impression at His Majesty's Theatre, London. A Lon- don critic writes as follows: "The part of Figa-ro was admirably taken by Mr Lewys James. He acts as well as he singsa rare combination < < SAMUEL G. WESLEY. No English musician of the nineteenth cen- tury did more for church music than this composer, whose works have so truly enriched it. His anthems, etc., are sung in most Churches and Cathedrals of the pre- sent day, and are greatly appreciated. TIe was orgaruist of Hereford Cathedral at the age of 22. There he composed the beautiful anthem, "Blessed be the God and Father" -a truly sacred piece of music. He wrote it for an Easter Sunday morning service, and it is sung in many Cathedrals on that day. He also composed the anthem,, "The wilder- ness." at Hereford. These pieces were sung at the com.memoration service at Westmin- ster Abbey on, June 29th, also the following compositions of Wesley: "0 Lord, my God," "Ascribe unto the Lord," Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in E, anthem "All go unto one place. "Cast me not away from Thy presence," "0 Lord, Thou art. my God." a. masterly work; "Praise the Lord, 0 my soul;" also some hymn tunes. Sir F. Bridge conducted, and' Dr" Alcock supplied the organ accompaniments. 1 • MR DAVID TREHEARNE. This gentleman has been chairman of the Musical Committees of two National Eistedd- fodau, and is vice-chairman of that of a third —the 1910—to be held at Colwyn Bay. He ie an enthusiastic amateur, and I hope short- ly to be able to record his musical experience in this column. A sketch also and portrait of Mr Ernlyn Davies and other Welsh vocalis-ts and musicians will appear in due course. 111 THE CARDIFF FESTIVAL. This will be held in Cardiff immediately after the National Eisteddfod, in September. The f-ollowinig works will be petiormed:- "Elijah;" Co wen's new choral work, "The Veil, composed expressly for the festival; Dr. David Thomas' new ode, "The Bard;" Harty's symphonic poem, "With the Wild Geese"—these two works conducted by their composers. Among the vocalists are Madam Amy -Evans, Mr Ben Davies, and Mr Ivor Foster. The pianist, Miss Marie Novello, is also engaged. The Cardiff Festival Chorus will be assisted by the London Symphony. Orchestra. A GREAT ORGANIST. M. Guilmant, -of PLI., orpani the farnc)i,, played ?'t at tIlO MallChCSteT Unj vel-L'ity week, and has been presented with the elegit of Mus. Doc. by the University. In iatrj,, duoing him, Dr. Pyne said his were "complex in counterpoint, subtle in har- mony, clear in form, and last but not least, he had some tune in them. He possessed gift of melody pure and undefilcd, which* though dt was not fashionable now, was all excellent thing in music." • THE "CERDDOR" FOR JULY is to hand. I ,4b.all call attention to SI)nlo of its contents next week.
