PWLLHELI CLUB. SUGGESTED "QUALIFIED MEMBER- SHIP." Tho annual gene rail iiieeting 01 the Pwllheli Golf Club was held1 on Saturday, Mr Thomas Roberts, Portmadoe, in the chair. In submitting- a. report on the club's working, Mr Caradoc Davios, utae hon. secretary, said a very pleasing feature was the increase in the green fees money, winch, afforded complete justi- ficaticn for the extension of' the cour.-e to 18 holes. The groon. f-ces had increased by £ 50 8a compared with last year. The committee were considering several suggestions in the interest:* of the club's welfare, and amongst others was tihe advisability of creating a qualified member- ship, i.e., to accept new members without en- trarjoei fee or at a reduced entrance foe, who would have all the privileges of fuM membership exactly playing in competitions free and who would be restricted to playing on one or more da.ys a week. It was suggested that a large number of tradesmen and assistants could be got to join under such a. qualified membership. It was also suggested to increase the entrance fee. Mr R. Brecm Turner remarked that the latiov was a very good suggestion, but as to the former he did not tilink much of it. He did1 not want to keep out anybody, but if they cut down the entrance fee arid let a man in as a second class sort of meunoorbe did not chink it good for the working of the club (hear. hear). Alderman. Ma/urice Jones was not in favour of cutting down the entrance fee as it would in- troduce claes distinction. It was decided! to call a special meeting to consider the question. Alderman Maurice Jones was elected captain, Mr Caradoc Da view was no-ejected hon. secretary, and Mr Tom Jones treasurer.

THE REGISTRATION OF BANGOR GOLF CLUB. FREE CHURCH COUNCIL'S COMMENTS. The registration of the Banigor Golf dub to enable refreshments to be provided at the ohib ptaviiion wias the subject of considerable cri,ti. cii m at a meeting of the Bangor Free Church Council, held on Friday night, at Parlc Hill Ch, Schoolroom, the Rev. Thomas Hughei, St. Paul's, prosidng. At the outset the ques- tion arose as to whether, in view of future action, the PreL-ii should be allowed to remain :n the-meeting whilst the subject .of registration was ber'og diseuis«l. On the motion elf Mr O. T. Owen, Kimberley House, it was decided not to ask the reporters to retire. The Secretary (Mr W. D. Evans) stated that he had ooinnrvunicated with the Naional Council of Free Churches with reg-ard to the regisrtation of the GoJf Club, and they had replied that the position of the Bangor Free Church Council de- pended upon the nature of the club. was a proprietary club, a lioenoe would 1 be apj^hed for in the ordinary way as in the oase of hotel's, etc., and the niermbem of the Council oould oppose the application at the licensing ses^ slonti. If the club, however, was governed bv its members the Council coujid take no legal steps to prevent the sale of intoxicating liquors, as no licence was required, it being granted as a matter of course, and oould not be objected to exoerpt on grounds of misconduct which would not be applicable in the present case. "BUJt the members of the Council oou.1d use their influ- ence on the young men who were m am.beto get them to oppose the proposal. Mr Wm. Richards said he believed the dlub had been registered, so he was afraid they were perfectly helpless in the matter. Still, be thought they should take a firm stand on the question, and he was rather glad the Press was represented at the nieetinig. Personally, he would go so f-ar as to advise the churches to recommend the withdrawal of its members from the club because it had gone in for the sale of drink, which was a Eouroe of temptation to young- men. He saw no reason why drank shouild have been introduced into the club. Dr. Evans, Brynkina.lt. also thought that moral influence should be used in such matters as these. The Secretary said drink was already being solid at the Club Pavilion. Mr Wm. Richards: Can't we pass a resolution i saying we are sorry for what has taken place? I think we ought to say something. Mr Henry Lewis said he was prepared to move a resolution that the Council should ex- press its regret that the Baagor Golf Club had placed itself in a position to become the pur- veyors of intoxicating LvM-, but that they take no further action. He thought it withen the province of the Council to express such an opin- ion. upon any matter which oonoorned a pubiio society such as the Golf Club wilthout being charged with interfering as busy bodies in too concerns of others. It wa? a public club appeal- ing to the public, and embracing a largo num- ber of members, so it was open to public criti- cism, but whether it was tlieir duty as a Free Church Coimoil to place any impediment in their way was anothor matter. Personally, he did not see they were bound to interfere. The suggestion made by Dr. Evans as to moral in- due no:1 being used, should commend itself to each one of them, and they had been doing that for a long period—raising their voices in season and out of season, against the pernicious haibit of drinking intoxicating liquors. It was their duty to bear witness to the fact that the high- wt and noblest pleasures of life, whether physical or mental, could 00 attained without the use of intoxicating liquors, and one could not l ie lip expressing the greater surprise that a club, instituted ostensibly not for pleasure alone, but to promote health, .manly vigour, and to de- velop energy, shoukl have to resort to that chAntcal compound whioh wao now oorkde-n,-d by the greater part of the medical facuLty in this country. It showed that the promoters of the movement must be ignorant of those facte, but hat he wets wc,41 assured himself from, his know- ledge of many of the members, that the innova- tion waa not popular ia, the ciub-r. hea4 ( -atid that itu inception was due to a small, and. he hoped, a decreasing section. It was, however, tho duty of pitblio mien who joined clubs iike thv^e not only to show the example of terrnperanoe to the younger generation, but also to show 'by their practice that they aiso pro- tested against the old-fashioned view about the supported virtue of alcohol. Still, he felt it was no business of theiri to interfere, seeing that tho club was a private one, with the pleasures -^f the members, but they might pass a resolution anfil hope that although the power:; to soil drink had been obtained, there would be very little neoo:sity to exercise them (hear, hoar). Prof. J. M. Davies. in seconding the motion, said Mr Henry Lewis had put the matter in such a way that they all could approve of. It was a very moderate resolution. As people who had .always been on the side of temperance, they should exprass tlieir feelings in the matter, but it was hardly necessary for him to say that they did not oppose golf as a pastime; on the con- trary everyone present, and most of the churchee were thoroughly in sympathy with such exer- cises. and except for the present step taken by the Ciub, they wouid have recommended their young men if t'ney couid afford the time and money to join k. He could not comprehend why the members of the Ciub didn't realise they lwere offering a great temptation to young peojile. The members of tlie C.'ub were among the most highly respected citizens of Bangor, most of them, if not all, Christian peo- ple, are in sympathy. wi<th. ternperainoe work and young members might say,"Here are rcvpoct- ablc people, an dsurely it cansot be wrong to join, with them in taki.ng a giass of beer." It was a pity there should -be such a temptation set before the members, and as workers for temper.. anee they could not afford- to jet the step pass unnoticed. CARtE COUNSELLED. Rev. T. Gasquoine thought the meeting should be a little careful in ttie matter. His personal regret at the decision of the Golf Club was pea-haps greater than that of anyone present, but they were not iui-einbied as a temperance so- ciety. They were met as representatives of the Free Churches in the city, and whatever sub- ject came before tfre Council might nlgh-t.y come before the churches of the city, but he did not think any one church felit itself called upon to express a public admonition of the Golf Ciub, which, after all, was a private ciub. No doubt oach one of them feit pen^mal regret, but who was the meeting going to express regret to? If regret wai expressed to the Golf Club a diffi- culty might arise; they might bo told they were interfering. He thought it unw.se to suggest that persons should refrain from joining the club; rather let them join in hundreds and get a majority which would linsast upon the cessation of the innovation. In a city where there were so many students, away from their homes, it was a great mistake to osuablish such tempta- tion;* as they had complained of. For three years the club had' been withotot intoxicants, without any apparant discomfort, and he thought they might pass a roio.ution expressing regret that they had not continued' on those llne>. Dr. G. Evans regretted he was unable to agree with the Last peakex. It was not neces- sary to send a resolution to the Goif Club, but he did not see how they could communicate their opinion in tlie matter, and ask the churches to use moral influence on the members of the ciub unless they passed a resolution of some kind, lie was sure the Welsh ohurch of the city would accept Air LewW views whatever the English churches might do. They did not want to presr, anything, but Let tho churches know the Coun- cil's attitude. If they attempted to use pressure they might do harm. • NOT1 DEALING WITH CHILDREN. Mr O. T. Owen, Kimberley House, moved an amendment that the Council take no action in tho matter. He was ia total sympathy with tem- l>eranoe work but he pointed out that they wero not dealing with a lot of little ohildren when they were doali ng witih the mem bars of the gctli club. Bangor Golf Club was composed of the mcst highly resipooted gentlemen and l-adlies in tho city and iti would be safe to leave tho matter in their haaidls. They were quite as anxious as tho Council to sea that the Club was carried on in a proper manner. A special meeting was called to consider the question of registration, whioh win agreed to watli only three dissentients and among those who voted in favour were many total abstainers. Tho Club was registered not akxne for the sake of the local members but *s the result of great pressure brought to bear by visitors who complained that the* dub did not offer the facilities afforded by other clubs. Rev. T. Gasquoine seconded tlie amendment. Mr Henry Lewis remarked that the meeting might agree upon a resolution expressing regret. Having taken all that trouble 4no did n<5t see why thiey Should drop the matter like a hot (xjtato. Let them have the courage to express their feciingtj. Mr Wm. Richards hoped the meeting would exprass something stronger than regret. Talk- ing about tihe respectable people in the town, they migiht be leading pcopla but they were j people for drink. They oould not indulge in manly garnets without taking drink. It had been said that the drink was for visitors, but these peopie took it all the same because they liked it. If they wanted it let tlbern have it. but let the Council defend its young people. In his opinion t2ie resolution did not go far enough.

Williams, Manchester House, a member of the Club, said there was nothing in tine matter to be, adanmed at. Unfortunately he had very little time to spend on the links for it di<| a man a iot of E<ccd to be on the course, WThyn lie Iheard of the movement he was sorry, but 'he oould assure the meeting that tliere was no necetssiity whatever for any member to g<o near tluef golfhouso where drink was sold. He qtnite agreed that too much drink was consumed1 in Bangor but the Council need1 not be alarmed over this matter. Mr Lloyd' Jor.es said a member of tihe Golf dub lhad asked him whether the members of the Free Church Council were not ratepayers* and if EO was it consistent for them to blame the Golf Chib for gelling drink when they themselves were sharelioliters in the municipal public house. Mr O. T. Owen: Lf we are so anxious for reo form 3-et us start nearer homes and clear out streets of drunkardfa. Tiaoro are many young men be- ing led to drink on our streets and let us deal wiitlh them first. Mr Hemry Lewis, who complained that the dis- cuss'jon wad beginning to wander, then proposed that tho Council regretted that the Golf Cub had departed in tihe practice 'hitherto observed of xe exclu ding intoxicating liquor from the Club premises and 'have two dissemtie'n'ts; tihis waa carried.
WYNNSTAY HUNT PUPPY SHOW. ThL, event took pla-oe at the Kenncfe, to-day week and was witnessed by a good: number of people from Flintshire, Denbighshire, Cheshire, and North Shropshire. The judges were Mr Griffith, r Field Master to the Belvoir Hound. and Mr iteginaild (jorsx-t, late lyid^jr of the South Chcsihire HOUJKI and iihoir dwisions were as .follows: -Dogs L Rev. J. T Rider, Bascihurch; 2, Enoch Brook- field, Cross Lanes, Maruhwiel; 3, Price Da vies, WyTinstay. Bitches: 1, Mr Hinton. Bagley; 2, William Hug!h Woodiiouse, Shooklach; o, Wil- liam Shone, Caeca Dutton, Wrexham. After the decision had boen announced an. adjournment was made to Wynnstay, where Sir Watkin entertained his visitors. Mr M in torn, Montfoid, Shrewsbury, pressed the 'health of Sir Watkin, whom he aharacterisod as a true sportsman, a keen business man, a;nd one of the mo-,t. generous of landlords. Fie did his duty splendidly in the field, and was at ihe same tune quick to step any trespass on the farms. Sir Watkin, in reply, said it was 25 years ago sinoo he took up the mastership, and he thanked them siiioereJy for the kindness and generosity with which they had always received tlie hounds. He oould truly say that after 25. years with the hotnudts he had as many frienda now as when he took over the mastership. He was pleased to think 'that after all the sores were soon healed and they got on splendidly together. Tihey knew him, trusted him, and ha was the same with them; that was why siioh an excellent spirit jx!rva<iied aLf oonmeotedi witli the Wynnstay Hunt. lie was sorry to say that the puppies had ;hao, a bad time of it sirwe they came back to the kennels. It was not distemper, it was rather a kind or apoplectic seizure, and it had dc-M sad mioc.hief. He had tried lÙ., beet to discover what the complaint was but had failed. In conclusion, Sir Watkin highly praised fox-hunting, and, he had his audiemce with him when he said that hunting generated uh^best of feeling and fellow- ship amongst all olasfses in the hunting districts. Fox hunting led! to co-operation, amonglst all clas- ses, and if there were more combination there would be less talk of Socialism (cheers).
NORTH-WALES-SHEEP DOG TRIALS. REMARKABLE CAtINE CLEVERNESS. Glorious summer weather, a record crowd (numbering upwards of 10,000), including- re- presentatives of the chief families in North Wales, and sport of a quality that judges state has never been surpassed in the long history of the meetings, combined to makie the North Wales sheep-dog trials, held 011 Captain W. Best's beautiful estate at Llan- gollen, on Friday, a memorable gathering. The chief event is tho Cambrian Stakes, in which money prizes aggregating Y,25 and the Robertson Challenge Trophy were offered. Thirty-four of the cleverest dogs in the King- dom competed, many of them coming from Lord Rothschild's trials in Tring Park. Tliere was a most exciting finish. The judges set a difficult task, including the negotiation of several fences and a bridge of hurdles, and estimated that the cleverest dogs might do it in twelve minutes, the time allowed. Pink, a four year old, owned by J. Moses, Oswestry, did it in eight minutes; and Laddie, worked by S. E. Batty, of Rotherdam, in seven minutes. On points, however, the judges reversed the order, Moses taking the premier priza and the trophy for the second year in succession, Laddie being plaecd seoond, and the third was Hemp, also worked by Batty, whilst the fourth prize went to Quoenie, worked by Ernest Priestley, Bath Edge Farm, Hatheieage. In the special stakes for working two dogs at the same time, S. E. Batty was first, J. M-oses second, and T. D. Hand ley, Park House, Ravenstonedale, third. District Stakes.—Dogs: Jack, worked by R. Pugh, Pentnedwr, 1; Hyle (P. Sharpe, Selattyn, Oswestry), 2. Bitches: Lady John (K. Parry, Odol Farm, Chirk), 1; Meg (J. Broadfoot, Llanddyn Hall, Llangollen), 2. At the close of the trials, which lasted from dawn to dusk, there was great demonstration by the huge crowd in honour of Captain Best, the popular organiser of the event.

MENAI STRAITS YACHTING CARNIVAL. INTERESTING REGATTAS. This weeik the Menai Straits Yachting Carni- val took plaoe, being inaugu/rated with the an- nual regatta of the Royal Anglesey Yacht Club, on Tuesday. Tho famous yaolita which havo visited the Straits for many years, post again took part in the coiitaata, -and! racing witnessed was of an interciytinig character. ROYAL ANGLESEY YACHT CLUB. TJUS annual lixturo took place on Tuesday, and though-the breeze, which wao f rom tlie east- ward, w-as hardly sufficiently strong or steady to give a really conclusive racing trial, there was sufficient of it to enable tho full courses to bo completed. The Kght winds of Monday pre- vented the arrival of the Kingstown boat "Mar- garet," and a stiJL more notable non-arrival was "Mi-noru," the winner of the Liverpool-Douglas r- raee, which only arrived in the anchorage when the reg-a,tta was in full swing. The turn to windward against the hot flood tide occupied so much time that tho st-orninort boats m the handicap classes had a strong ebb to fight again: t lunning horybo from B2 buoy, and this put them hopelessly astern of the winners. The Sea hind CLass. whioh usually form quite a 1 feature of tlie Straits regattas, are this year only .y poorly represented, which is muoih to be regret- ted, a, they provided' excellent sport, Beaumaris boing unusually full of visitors. The Jiojiarary secretary of the olub, Captain Lang,don, attended to the starting and t.iiming ar- rangements, the assistant secretary being Mr Wi.liam Griffiths. Some raeinig details follow:— HANDICAP MATCH FOR YACHTS OYER 15 TONS (first prize, £ 10; Eecond, £ 4); start, 10.30. T H. M. S. 1. Wallaroo (outter), 24.

ROYAL ANGLESEY YACHT CLUB. CENTRE-BOARD CLASS. When the race took place on Saturday week, at Beaumaris, there was a very strong S.S.W. breeze, and all the boats carried reefed, second lugs, and even under this small can. vas one or two had as much as they could do in the puffs. The following started :—Bojum (Mr J. R. Da vies), Cyane (Mr Trevor), Ethil- da (Mr Livingston), Morwyn (Mr Moseley), Red Spider (Mr R. Mason), Spindrift (Mr H. R. Davies). Morwyn and Red Spider crossed the line almost beam and beam with Ethilda cloaa behind. It was just possible to run down to the lee mark with booms to port, and the two leaders did so though it meant rather a heavy gyle at the buoy. The flood tido meeting the wind caused <]|uite a heavy eea, and a lot of water was shipped even on the r,in. Red Spider rounded about a length ahead of Morwyn, and these two sailed a rare good race on the beat up the latter THE WRONG SEED. •77, j, recently issued Memorandum of the Tariff Commission (No. 42) on the new Japanese tariff showa that Lancashire ^Trade' FoUcy^ DaUy^ress*^5™5* US ho^eless e&pect any concessions from them so long as we pursue a Frt4 COTTON OPERATIVE Well, I'm -—!

At Friars, Morwyn was first boat, but then the wind increased, and Red Spider making rather better weather of it, drew out with quite a good lead. Cyane now being third, and Bojum fourth.

ROYAL MERSEY YACHT CLUB RACE*. ROCK FERRY TO LLANDUDNO. The Royal Mersey Yaeiht Club held, their annual handicap race from Rook Ferry to Lla.n- dudflio on Saturday. This fixture always precedes the Menai Straits re,-Iattas which beg-atn on Mooiday and forms the first point of assembly for tihe distant boats, those from Dublin, also coming over, but not racing. A part from the merits of the. ocntest, there was special interest on Saturday in the fact that Walla-roo hoped to beat Minoru, her succcssful rival [in the "Midnight" race. Unfortunately Minioru lost her bowsprit off Formy Ship, and returned to the Mersey onoo more disabled, but she expects to return to the figiht next week. I'tesult Tigris, a Clyde 20-tonner, 15min., firat; Wal- laroo, scratch, second; Mildred! (the fainous old yawl built in the United Sitates in the seventies), third. Angelina was fourth, amd Kathleen not hmod. Wind1 north-west, fresh.
PENMAENMAWR REGATTA. AN ENJOYABLE DAY. The annual regatta was held at Pen maen- mawr, on Monday afternoon, and favoured as it was by fine weather, proved a most suc- cessful event. If amytl-ling was at fault with the weaither, it was the lack of wind, for there was only a slight breeze blowing in a N.N.W. direction, just, sufficient to create a tiny ripple on thie fa-cc, of the water, and to gently fill the canvas of the sailing-boats. All tho arrangements were excellent, and were carried out without a single hitch, which reflects tho greatest credit upon tho energetic committee, the officios of which were:—Commodore, Dr. J. IL Williams, R.W.Y.C.; vioe-cotiim-odore, MT H. W. Dar- bishire; timekeepers, Mr W. S. Jones, R.W.Y.C., Dr. H. M. Roberts, and Mr H. C. Jones; in-shore judges, Mr C. H. Darbi- shire, R.W.Y.C., Dr. H. T. Jenkins, and Mr H. W. Jones; handicapper, Mr J. F. Jellico, R.M.YX' starters, Messrs H. W. Darbishire, W. Hughes, and Thomas Roberts; hon. trea- surer, Mr F. D. Chantrey; and hon. secre- tary, Mr R. John Hughes.

FLINTSHIRE RATING APPEALS. A remarkable ending to the appoails by a numiber of parishes in Flintshire carne to lig-ht on Friday at the adjourned Quarter Sesions at Mold. At a prerviou-s court four p-ariisher--name- ly, Kinnerton, part of the parish of Hawarden, East Saltnoy. and We&t Saltney.—appealed agfcihst the County Council basis of rate and also against the actual rate. In ali there were eight separate appeals. On that occa&ion the viarrauB parishes that were appealing as well as the respondents, tli-o Flintshire County Council, were reprerented by counsel. At the present Court Mr H. Goodman Ro- berts (clerk to the Hawarden Rural District Council) explained to the Bench that the County Council had decided not to contest the appeals, and, it now remained for the court to approve of the draft orders, .the latter to be confirmed at a subsequent court. Acoor-ding to the ptate- ment of Mr Roberts, the total amoun-t of the reduction from the present basis in the four par- ishes would be between £ 7000 and £ 8000. T!.e' oourt approved the orders with some 9%ht ver- bal alterations, and it was understood that a report would be made at a Later court "ui 11:-> question of costs. Mr P. P.

Olwen Jones having callcd and stated that she worked an hour the closing time on June 22, halMiolidiay, Taylor, one of the two lady inspectors visited- the workshop, was called and was ing the statement made to her on June 2J Missi Jones as to tihe extra hour she had worK when Mr Mo-rks objected, submitting that in absence of Mr Owen WKJ statement was no die nee.

LLANDUDNO LAUNDRY CASE. l*homas Pike, proprietor of the Llan<>u^f Hand Laundry, was next charged with a &irr1^ -offe,noo.

Miss Taylor said that with Miss Meiklcjo^v she reached tlie laundry at 4.35. They straight up to the ironing-room, and saw el^*L or ten women there. Some five of them rar into a. room further away, but three girls acfcuaSy caught at work. Their names taken, aDd the inspectors proceeded to the room, a.nd' aslrodtho other women if they h been working. Their reply was "No!" Tlw did not aocount for the fact that they had rtJD away. Catherine Longfehaw said' ihafc Mr Pike served the regulatioiis carefully as a ride, treated his employees well. The person subpoenaed to prove the third' esso was Annie Bromley, who stated that she WO nob employed in the laundry at afl.

Mr Chamberlain: Then you ought to lciow that it is gencrai-ly wise when there is no serious offence to get to the end of it quickly. Mrlea Sadler: We are only taking three caøeS out of many. I am under instructions from tho Home Office. The magistrates dismissed all the eases, and Mr Cham be ra i n asked for cost for the defendant. The Homo Office inspedtors, who had special privileges, and did not employ solicitors, prose- cuted a lot of people, and in cases like that tho defendants, who were put to the expense of employing solicitors, ought, in fairness, to haVO costs awurded them. A guinea advooate'a foe was allowed in case brought in respect of Miss Bromley. A POINT OF LAW. Mr J. Sheriff Roberts was next charged witb employing Gladys Barron and Ellen Stringer after hours, and, with not exhibiting the abstract in tho Queen's Hotel private laundry, Llandudno Miss Sadler said that the cases were similar to those which the Bench had dismissed. The laundry at the hotel was now a workshop in the meaning of the Acts. Mr Chamberlain contended that by section 103 of the Act of 1901 a laundry was not a workshop unless there were more than two persons not resident on the premises employed there. At this laundry there were not more than two per- sons employed. After some searching of law books on the pa.rt of the lady inspectors. Miss Sadler submitted1 that that section had been re- pealed. Mr Chamberlain: That is all the better for me (laughter). The Court decided to adjourn the cases in order that the Magistrates' Clerk might givo considered advice on the point of law.
