ROYAL ANGLESEY YACHT CLUB. CENTRE-BOARD CLASS. The first race of the season, for points to- wards the best aggregate, took place on Saturday. There had been two previous races, won respectdv-ely by Cyane and Bojum, but they are not to be reckoned in the total. The race was he'd over the usual Beaumaris course in a nice whole-sail north, erly breeze, F-iv-J boats s^a(rtcd> course in a nice whole-sail north, erly breeze, F-iv-J boats s^a(rtcd> Bojum, Mr J. R. Davies. Cyane, Mr T. W. Trevor. Ethilda, Mr Livingston. Red Spider, Mr R. Mason. Mor-wpi, Mr Moreley. Considerable interest was shown, especially as regards Ethilda—a new boat designed by Mylue, and rigged as a. sloop instead of as a lugger like all the other boats. Saturday's race, being a reach throughout, was not adapted for showing a fair comparison, but she sailed very well, and evidently stands up weJJ. to her canvas. A very good "ctaxt was made, Red Spider being across the line within two seconds of guniire closely followed by Bojum. A very strong ebb-tide made it a quick reach to the Peaimon buoy, Red Spider drawing out with a lead -of about one min tte-the'o-the. being in cloae order astern. Reaching back against the strong tide, the four leading boats took the Anglesey shore, Morwyn alone trying to baat the ebb along the banks. F Spider had just enough of a lead to keep clear of all the rest, and thus increased her lead, the other boats making a big fight for second berth. They rounded the Swat-ch Buoy in the foiowing order;- Ersd Spider 3 52 13 I Cyane 3 53 50 Ethilda 3 55 9 Bojum 3 55 36 Morwyn 3 57 1 There was no change in positions during tho second lap. The breeze lightened a bit, but was always just enough for the boats to bore up against the tide.

Mr Living- stUD. is to be congratulated upon building for this very sporti-ng class, and it is to be hoped he will be rewarded. A little new blood does a great deal in keeping up the interest, and some fine racing is anticipated during the season.

The Chairman said it was very necessary that this country should adopt some scheme of Tariff Reform as early as possible, inasmuch as jur treaty with several other countries terminated on July 1st, 1911. The outcome of that would be that Japan, for instance, would prefer to re- ciprocate with all countries that had any form of protection. As long as England had Freo Trade it was not necessary for a country to re ciprocaie with her. Japan was about to aJtJr its tariffs on goods brought into that country; it was proposed to put an extra duty of 75 per cent. on cotton yarns, 600 per cent. on serges, and 468 per cent. on manufactured machinery. In conclusion, ho urged that the time had coin-) when this country should adopt a fiscal policy better suited to our industrial interests. "FREE TRADE" AND PROTECTION. Mr Dumphreys, who was accorded a hearty re- ception, said he was gratified to find such a mrgo number present in the height of the busy season. They all possessed some influence, which, if exerted properly, would lead to an increase in the club membership, and he trusted that at the next election they would at Llandudno redui-e tho majority of their opponents, and later on they might have the satisfaction of sending a gentiemau to Westminster who would represent their own views and interests (cheers). Dealing with the question of Tariff Reform, he said he was firmly convinced that a system of tariffs on imported goods would protect the homo market, and a profitable home market was tho strongest weapon for the protection of any coui. try (hear, hear). Under our so-called "Free Trade" system no tax was placed on articles which could be produced in this country, yt-;t articles which we could not produce were taxed. That certainly did not seem a fair system- Sir r Lyon Play fair, in rel-erring to the MeXinlay Act of 1891, said: "If the Americans be right in prin- ciple, and if they be successful in practice, the whole policy of the United Kingdom is founded on a gigantic error, and must lead to our ruin as a commercial nation." He knew their political opponents did not luce the word "Protection," but if Mr Lloyd George's Patents Act was not the very essence of Protec- tion, he did not know what was. Trade Union- ism was also the very essence of Protection; it was protection for labour. Why not, therefore, have protection for trade as well, and by having protection on both sides secure a strong hoina "0 market? (hear, hear). Germany had once tried the free import system, but soon reverted to Protection. Unfortunately, owing to our one- sided system of trading, the foreigner was allowed to daily dump down his goods in this country to the displacement of the home manufactures. The more we import of manufactured goods the more money goes into the pockets of the foreigner, and which ought to have been spent on labour in this country. A "FOREIGN LABOUR" PARTY. Mr Dumphreys said 00 had forty years ex- perience of tic leatiher trade, and he pointed out how the number 01 teiawries bad beeai greatly reduocsd1 owing to the wants ol tie people being supplied by foreign mamuiactured gcods (aha^ne-). They bad a. Labour partly in the House, of Commons, but waa it not rather a "Foreign Labour" party, seeing bhat ,h.ey coai- timued to wphoCd a, system which sadly inter tewd with the British workman anui was rumour to his interests ? One of the CiL-4 aims of a. true Labour party should) be to secure British work for British workmen (hear, hoar}. On faor teau the Britisher oowld1 beat aR the foreiginers in tihe world (appaause). Proceeding Mr Duantphreys said that in 1885 he bad the duty and, honour of oppoe-itog- Mr Joseph Chaanberteun, who at that time was a Free Trader, but by virtue of the doctrine he (the speaker) preached at that electron, aDd the good and fruitful seed sown, the right heav. gentleman was brought to for himself that under our preseait syetecc, the trade of Birming- ham was. feist being- ruiaed, and that some of the work whaoh fouud employment for tho fcreiigiier should^ be done by our own people (hear, hear). Te-day thousands of mem wore glad- to earn a few shillings by unloading the very goods they could1 aasd used to manufacbm-o tfbomiselves (.shames). The moito of the Radicals was "Peace, rotreaaehme-nt aaid reform." He would say nothing as to their policy of peaces nor of tftie rotaieaichment they baG pursued since tbey had been irn power, but they belied their faiith in their pceiioy of Reform (Cbeeq-4 The foreigner was madl aware that Protection was good for him, Let. the peopfe of this country insist upon the- foreigner treating th-em as they treated him. In the year 1908 we imported £ 143,085,597 worth of wholly or partly majiuf aetei nod goexfe. In the same year we imported twenty-fi-ro million pounds worth of butter and fifteea mal- ison pounds worth of bacan. Why not keep out &e foreigner and give Shear orders to Irelamd amd to Canada in return for the prefenence riie giv to British made go-okb? (applautsto). There weeie no greater rMts in the Hxxt-o of Ooan- mom than the Irish when. Ireland was conoerned.

''N-:ithmtr I have propesod wffl, ii>oreaee> by cete faxthinci the cost of lavhag in this country'' (hear. hoar). Under Free 'Trade there was aiot an aritcfe of food that had not irmreiased 5a price.

THE MINES AND QUARRIES COMMISSION. NORTH WALES EVIDENCE. Th.e Royal Commission on Metalliferous Mines and Quarries, sitting in London, on Friday and Saturday, took evidence from North Wak-a. The first witness was Mr 0. R. Jones, in- spector of miii-os and quarries in the Liver- pool and North Wales district. He suggested that the Factory Acts of 1901 should be re- peaied so far as they related to dressing' floors aaid any buildings or works connected y with metal mines. Such provisions should be incorporated in an Act amending the Metal- liferous Mines Act. This would assist in- spectors, owners, and persons employed clear- ly to understand their duties, aim more effec- tively fix responsibility, besides gimplfying the work. In reference to the examination 01 boilers in mines, the witness said that some time ago he discovered that the chief engin- eer of a large insurance company was send- ing two reports on the same boiler one marked "ConndesntiaJ" and the other for the inspector to see. Be suggested that miners should be prohibited from using explosives other than these provided by the owners. Cartridges should be standardised, and suit- able drills provided. The keeping of warm- ing pane, which often prevented accidents, should be compulsory. The witness made a variety of other sug- gestkois with a view to minimising risk, and said he thought all roles should provide for prohibiting intoxicating liquor being- taken into ntimes or quarries. He had come across several instances where it had been a danger to many workers. THE COMMISSION TO VISIT WALES. Mr Jones was further asked whether he could account for so many accidents taking place at the Dinorwic Quarries, in Carnar- vonshire? He replied that he could not give any explanation. Those particular quarries were not in his district. He should have thought they would be the safest in Carnar- von. It was stated that the Commission proposed to visit some of the mines and quarries in Wales in xegard to which evidence had been heard. Evidence was given by quarrymen working at the quarries at Festiniog. They stated that generally speaking the quarries were worked under good conditions, but there was room for more Crov-ernment inspectors. Government inspectors should visit the quar- ries more often, and should be in consultation with the manager. A MINIMUM WAGE AND ACCIDENTS. Mr Morris D. Jones, inside worker at the Diuarwic .Quarries, said that one out of every throe got injured at the quarry in the open according to the last statistics. He believed the number of accidents would be reduced if all the quarries were worked under the same Act of Parliament. Only one accident oc- curred at Din-orwic during the last two years through blasting. He beMeved that the* pay- mcnt of a weekly wage instead of the present piece-work system would be conducive to a reduction of accidents. rilie workers now earned nothing sometimes for a week, and them they hurried in order to make up their wage. It was then that accidents occurred. A minimum wago ought to be guaranteed. Mr W. R. Williams, an aid worker at the Dorothea Slate Quarry, and Mr W. H. jones, an employee at the Alexandra Slate Quarry —Which are open slate quarries under tie pit method,—a so gave evi-denoo. The for- mer advocated improved sanitary conditions. With regard to Government inspection, the witness eaid he had no complaint to make against it, except that the inspector should not go round with the quarry official. He did not think thecre was anything wrong in the inspector being accompanied by the quarry official, except that it did not give the men a chance of making their complaints to tie inspector. He would be satisfied if tie mjem's representatives were allowed to go round oreasio-nally with the inspector, as in the case of coal mines. Evidence was given from Penmaenmawr Granite Quarries tha.t tie management there, by means of fans, were doing every- thing possible to minimise the effect of the dust. The dust in the crushing department at the quarry had a bad effect on the kid- neys. The inquiry then adjourned until Septem- ber.
WELSH IN COURTS OF LAW SINGULAR INCIDENTS AT HOLYWELL. The BolywaI1 magistrates -wane engaged for a oousHferable time to-day week in hearing- a dhazgd against a Mostyn of having- a girl of eleven. The child had1 given her evidence in cfliietf in Welsh, but Mr T. W. Hughes (who appeared for the d&fence) started to oross-examam her in English, when it was poanted out that &he had given her evidefftoe in Welsh. Mr Hughes retorted1 that the child, spoke Engiyb very wail, and proceeded with his crcss-exaairajiation in that language. At a later stage of the proceedings, Dr. J. Owen Jornek3 (who is a. magistrate) was called into the witoess-box to give evidence as to his examinatkm of the chfid, and! before he was ewo.rn 00 said he would insist upon giving Ms evidence in Welsh. Had he been on the bench Se would have insisted' upon this jittle girl gfvichor evideaaee in Welsh. The Gbainunaai (Mr J. Lloyd-Prioe): The Bench can decide that. Dr. Jones: Cea-taanly. T%o CSiairiman: You want to giv-e your evid- etnoa in we-IGh? Dr. Jomee: Yea Dr. Jones was then sworn, and Mr Hughes suggested No should give his evidence in Engfcs&i to save time. Dr. Jonee: I have had my say, that's all. Mr Kerfoot Roberts (who was ptrceecutaig- im. the case): The doctor is qttite right to protest. Mr S. Jones (a niogistrati4: I stick out for Welsh, and I think it is right aod proper every one should give ovklence In the languagf they am aoousfewnied to speak every day. The dhlld did give evidence ia that laaiguagiei, the other day. Strong an upholder as D am of the Webb Uagungle,, I Ehaixt press it any further. Shortly afterwards a qwestiosn arose as to the oorrecrt mberpretafckaa of an answer (in Wefeh) returned to a. q-aestiftn by one of the witnesses, when the Chairman: remarked, "Fortunately the Betnch o»die<rstocd both languages." Mr Kerfoot Roberts: A very valuabio asset, sir.
