Haverfordwest Petty Sessions. Monday.—Before Messrs. W. r. Ormond, T. James, T. L. James, and T. Llewellin. ADJOURNED LICENSING SESSIONS. Mr Thomas, of the Bridge End Hotel, applied for a reduction of his license from seven days to six. He said his house was always closed on Sunday. The Magistrates Clerk said the licence had been renewed, and it would be competent for them to grant the application without any other notices. Mr T, L. James: He wants Sunday for himself. Mr Thomas That is so. The application was granted. There were no other cases of interest. DRUNK IN CHARGE. William Owens, of Scoveston, was charged with being drunk in charge of a horse and cart in High Street, on the 17th inst. I Defendant pleaded guilty, and said he was very sorry. Supt. Francis said the evidence of P.S. Phillips was that defendant was very drunk, and a man named Thomas Richards took charge of the horse and cart. Defendant said that was all he could remember. That was his his first offence. He had had a drop too much, but was not in the habit of doing so. Mr Ormond said defendant's coming there and ex- pressing regret, and it being his first offence, they had decided to fine him 2s. 6d. without costs. THE NEW VACCINATION ACT. The Magistrate's Clerk read the Act to the magistrates, and said in the case of children born before the passing of the Act the parents must apply before the 12th of December, four months after the passing of the Act.
The Failure of a Local Gas Manager. PUBLIC EXAMINATION CLOSED. At the Temperance Hall, Pembroke Dock, on Friday, before Mr Registrar Owen, Joseph Gibbon, gas works manager and surveyor, Haverfordwest, came up for his adjourned public examination. Mr H. J. E. Price represented the debtor, and Mr Gilbertson appeared on behalf of Mr Roberts, manager of the National and Provincial Bank, Haverfordwest. The Official Receiver asked the debtor if he had any- thing to add that day, or to correct, in regard to what he had said at his former examinations ? Debtor No sir, nothing. The Official Receiver Do you wish to alter anything ? Debtor No sir. Mr Price said the debtor had made a certain statement which Mr Roberts had contradicted, and he had Mr Jones there who would corroborate what had been said by Mr Gibbon. Mr Gilbertson: As to what statement are you referring ? Mr Price The general statement as to what was done. The Registrar The bankrupt has made his statement, and Mr Roberts has made his, and I think it may rest here. The Official Receiver Does Mr Jones come here as an aggrieved party the same as Mr Roberts ? Mr Price He is here to speak for himself. The Official Receiver: Having heard Mr Roberts I don't see how we can refuse to hear Mr Jones. Mr Gilbertson I don't think anything was said that would affect Mr Jones at the last hearing. I don't wish to pursue the subject; I am quite satisfied. Mr Price The debtor made a statement that it was owing to Mr Roberts's suggestion that he went in for the mill business, and Mr Jones can also make a similar statement in denial of that made by Mr Roberts. The Registrar: I don't think Mr Jones is affected in any way. Nothing has been said that would injure him in any shape or form. The Official Receiver (to Mr Gilbertson): You appear here on behalf of the bank to-day, and you object to Mr Jones being heard ? Mr Gilbertson: Well, I don't object. The Official Receiver: Then it is left entirely to the Registrar. The Registrar I don't see what Mr Jones has to do with it. It is only to clear somebody's character. Mr Gilbertson There is no character affected. The Registrar The bankrupt says his bankruptcy is attributed to the Narberth gas works and the mill account, and those are not consistent with each other. Mr Price He attributes it chiefly to the mill account. The Official Receiver here asked who was to pay as regards the transcript of the extensive notes of the bankruptcy examination ? The estate would not bear it. The Registrar I will consider that later on. Mr Price handed in a written statement from Mr Jones, bearing out the debtor's version of the mill account, &c. The Official Receiver Then will Mr Price stand the expense of this statement being put in. Mr Price Mr Jones is here, let him speak for himself. Mr Jones came forward, and said he was an aggrieved party in the sense that he had lost a considerable sum of money by the mill business. He was there that day to corroborate if necessary what Mr Gibbon had said with regard to that, but he was not prepared to spend any more money in the matter. The Registrar said he did not see what good purpose could be served by Mr Jones's evidence. The Official Receiver (to Mr Price) Then you hand this (the statement) over to me as the official trustee to deal with it as I like. Mr Price: That is so. The Official Receiver's Clerk, at the request of the Registrar, read from the notes of the examinations debtor's statements as to the causes of his bankruptcy My connection with the Narberth gas works and the expenses of a large family and "My purchase for a syndicate of the Prendergast paper mills." The Official Receiver (to debtor) You have heard the question raised to-day as to what you said on previous occasions were the causes of your insolvency. What do you say to-day is the cause of your insolvency ? Debtor The Narberth gas works and the mill trans- action. The Official Receiver You mean the purchase by you of the mill ? Debtor Yes, sir. The Official Receiver: That is all I want cleared up, sir. The Registrar: That then is all the evidence ? The Official Receiver: Then it may be closed subject to the signing of the notes. The Registrar Yes, I think so. The examination then closed, the debtor having read and signed the notes. Mr Gilbertson said as one paper had been handed in on the one sHe he would hand another in on the other side, for Mr Roberts. The Official Receiver, in taking it, said he would deal with it for his own private information as trustee.
Roose Petty Sessions. I Saturday.—Before Messrs R. Carrow, J. Phillips, J. H. Coram, and W. Davies. I A ROMANTIC CASE: A MAN WITH I TWO WIVES. William Richards, an old'man, residing at Narberth, was charged with disobeying an order to maintain his wife, the arrears upon which amounted to £ 5G 6s and his wife Jane Ann Richards (78), residing at Rose Cottage, Burton, applied for a distress warrant. Mr W. D. George, who appeared for defendant, said the case was of the most romantic nature from start to finish. The applicant said she obtained the order on April 21st, 18S7. The sum of £.j6 6s was due on the order, and she asked for a distress warrant against him. Cross-examined by Mr George, the applicant said they were married about 28 years ago, and defendant was then a widower with six children. About four years after marriage she separated from him, but he had had all her money, and on the day she left him he swore he would murder her if she did not leave him that night. He cut her hand, knocked her down, and put his knees on her chest. She went away and remained from him for about seven years, and after that he married again. She in- stituted proceedings against him for bigamy, and in those proceedings he was acquitted. She got the order from the Salford magistrates, whom she told he was getting £2 a week as stone-mason, and was also a farmer. She paid the rent of the farm out of her own pocket. She applied for the enforcement of the order at Salford in July 1889, and he was sent to prison for a month because he could not pay. In August 189.5, he failed to work and had parish relief. Just about that time she issued a summons for him to appear again, and on a medical certificate, and a letter that he was in receipt of parish relief, it was dismissed. She did not know that he had been out of work for two years at a time. She heard that defendant was now working at Slebech, and had been building a chapel at Molleson. Mr George said defendant could not make any offer. The Magistrates' Clerk: When the summons was granted she made a statement that he had two cows. Mr George added that when the order was made it was upon a mis-statement of facts, and defendant could apply for the order to be varied or annulled. In the meantime he must ask for an adjournment. The Magistrates' Clerk said this would not affect the arrears. Mr Carrow: Is he in a position to make any offer ? Mr George: iNo, he is not. Through the action of his wife, who went away from him, he was burdened with a second family. When she was away so long the man married again, thinking that he was justified in doing so. That is strong ground why the order should be annulled. The Magistrates' Clerk: Supposing the magistrates issue a distress warrant, what is he to say about that ? Mr George He has got nothing to seize. He has been living on the parish for two years, and is suffering from chronic rheumatism. He is able to work during the hot weather for a few months, but not during the winter. What he has on the farm belongs to his present wife. Applicant: What is there I put there, including the two cows. I am 78, and unable to work any longer. Mr Carrow asked defendant if he could not see his way to make some offer? Defendant said lie had not got his living for three years. His farm was 10 acres, and he kept one cow. The first disagreement he had with his wife (the appli- cant) was through her keeping a boy 13 two days and a night without food. Applicant That is untrue; I kept you and your children. Defendant, in answer to the Bench, said he had only worked two days on the chapel, and he was only a labourer. When he was a stonemason he only got 24s a week. Mr George contended that the order of 6s a week was rather hard when he had to keep another wife and children. lie was tried for bigamy at the Pembrokeshire summer Assizes in 1887. Supt. Francis handed in a police statement as to defen- dant's present position. Mr George said applicant went into the Narberth Union, and the Board made an order that defendant should pay 2s 6d a week for the time she was in there. Some time at the end of 1885 she left the Union and was not heard of for some years. Then she applied again to the Narberth Lnion, but the Guardians would not make an order because she had been away at Salford during that time. Then she issued a summons for him to appear at Salford, and he paid 6s a week for more than two years. Defendant himself was ill for two years with chronic rhematism, and then he had parish relief. From Christmis up till May he did not work at all, and from May until now lie he had been working occasionally. He asked for an adjournment in order that they might see upon what evidence the order was originally made at Salford. Mr Carrow I think it has a great deal to do with it and I think we ought to rectify it if a mistake has been made. d'd I thO Mr George said it did seem a cruel thing that they should allow those arrears to run to £56, and then ask for a distress warrant. The fact of defendant being on the parish was pretty strong evidence that he had got nothing. h The Magistrates Clerk: I don t suppose she presses for the whole lot. The case was adjourned for a month so that in- formation may be obtained from Salford as to what evidence the order was made upon. Mr Carrow requested Supt. Francis to obtain as much information as possible with regard to defendant's present position. STRAY PIGS. Richard Thomas, of the Victoria, in the parish of Roch, was fined, Is. (kl. for allowing three pigs to stray in the Haverfordwest road, on the 7th inst. P.C. James, of Camrose, proved the case. A STRAY DONKEY. Maria Williams, of White Rock, in the parish of Llanstadwell, was fined Is. for allowin, her donkey to stray on the highway on the 15th inst. 0 P.S. Thomas said he had cautioned defendant previously, and had received repeated complaints of the donkey being continually in the road. THE USUAL LANGUAGE. Samuel Jenkins, of Neyland, who did not appear, was charged with being drunk and disorderly in High Street and Picton Place, Neyland, at 11.15 p.m. on the 9th inst. Defendant sent a message pleading guilty, and asking for time to pay. 0 Supt. Francis said there was the usual language, but that was the first offence.

Mr Carrow: I was quite prepared for that. We don't treat as first offences when there is bad language. He must pay 7s. 6d. and costs. BICYCLES WITHOUT LIGHTS. John Phelps, Wm. Griffiths, John Morgan, and Wm. Palmer, all young men working in the dockyard, were charged with riding bicycles without lights at Houghton on the 13th inst. Defendants all pleaded guilty, but said they were asked to work overtime, or they would have been home before dark. P.C. Warlow, who proved the case, said he had received complaints of those men riding home without lights. Sometimes there would only be one man out of fifteen who had a light. Mr Carrow said it was a dangerous practice, and they would be fined 5s. each. SCHOOL BOARD PROSECUTION. James Walters was fined 2s. 6d. for neglecting to school his child, Richard. Mr J. W. Francis (attendance officer) said he had only made 97 attendances out of 152.
I Haverfordwest Town Council. ANOTHER NEW WATER SCHEME. A monthly meeting of this Council was held last evening, the Mayor (Sir Charles Philipps, Bart.), pre- siding. There were also present: Alderman Thomas James, John James, Councillors R. Mumford, W. Williams, P. White, W. Morgan, T. H. Thomas, R. A. G. James, J. H. Bishop, W. J. Jones, J. Evans, T. L. James, and W. H. George. HELP FOR THE WEST INDIES. The Mayor said he had received a letter from the Lord Mayor asking him to call the attention of the public to the Mansion House fund opened to alleviate the wide- spread and acute distress caused by the hurricane and whirlwind in the West Indies, and any gentleman who felt disposed to contribute could send direct to the Mansion House, or to the bankers here. WATER COMMITTEE. At a committee meeting held on September 23rd, bills were examined and ordered to be paid to the amount of £ 14r 19s lid. The committee recommended the accep- tance of the offer of the Haverfordwest Guardians of £ 2 for the use of water in the Workhouse garden; and as regards the supply of water to the New Buildings that, in default of a satisfactory arrangement as to payment being made in a month, the water be turned off. The Surveyor was directed not to make any connection with or repair the water mains without previous notice to the Waterman. A letter from Mr R. E. Thomas, of Cartlett, was read as to the supply of water to the Mill, and referred to the surveyor for report. The Inspector was directed to enquire as to the water used at the Infirmary, and report. The committee decided to charge Mr Studt, JE2, and Mr Danter 15s for water at Portfield Fair, the connection to be made at the expense of the parties. Alderman T. James moved the adoption of the report, and Mr T. L. James seconded. The report was then adopted. PUMPING THE BARNSLEY WATER. I Alderman T. James said it would be in the recollection of the Council that some time ago, perhaps 12 months, an arrangement was made that they should pay the man pumping water at Barnsley at the rate of 60,000 gallons per day, and if he pumped more he should be paid at the ,ate?f Id per thousand gallons extra. Since the last meeting he had pumped 8,250 gallons per day more, and he now moved that the man be paid j61 Os 8d in payment of his claim. Mr W. Williams said the amount was small, but the principle involved was one which the Council should well consider, for there was no reason why what the man had done one day he should not do the other days. (Hear, hear). Why should he claim extra payment for those days when he was not doing what he ought on other days? (Hear, hear. ) In reply to Mr Bishop, Alderman T. James said the man had had to work overtime to do this work. His wages were 30s per week, and 7s for Sunday work. Mr Williams: If this is passed it is only a premium upon a man not doing his duty. (Hear, hear.) The Mayor said as they were under a contract it would be dishonourable to ignore it now, but they could alter it after. Mr Bishop complained that the man who had been sent to Barnsley to work the portable engine had been kept idle for a month, and they had to pay his wages. He thought the surveyor was to blame. The Surveyor said the man in charge of the gas engine had pumped 80,000 gallons one day aud 90,000 gallons another day. The man sent to work the portable engine did not, he understood, sit idle all day, but as- sisted the other engineer. Mr W. Williams If our gas engine can pump 90,000 gallons in one day what is the reason that it comes so many gallons less another day ? I should like to know who is responsible ? The Surveyor: Longer hours I should think sir. Alderman T. James said he saw in the papers that the pumping at Barnsley cost zC600 a year. Was that cor- rect ? The Borough Accountant said he was asked at the last meeting what was the cost of the water supply, and he said £ 600, which included more than pumping of course. The cost of the pumping was £ 253 3s Gd. GAS COMMITTEE. At a committee meeting on September 23rd, bills were examined and ordered to be paid to the amount of X221 6s 3d. The list of arrears for the last quarter was gone through and instructions given to the Collector to take proceedings against certain persons, and to cut off the supply from certain others, and arrears struck out as irrecoverable to the amount of X2 8s. They recom- mended the acceptance of Messrs Price & Russell's tender for the repair, &c., of lamps for the ensuing year as per specification for 19. They recommended that the lamplighters be ordered to clean the lamps once every week, on Mondays (weather permitting). Mr R. A. G. James moved the adoption of the report, which was agreed to. BOROUGH COMMITTEE: THE JUBILEE GARDENS. At a committee meeting held 26th September, bills were examined and ordered to be paid to the amount of X25 16s 5d. The Committee recommend that the necessary steps be taken to stop the Circus being held on the Jubilee Gardens. The Surveyor's report as to the condition of Wm. Phillips' cottage was referred to the Council. Mr Jones moved the adoption of the report. Mr Mumford said he understood that the Jubilee Gardens were reserved for the Town Council to let, but now they were in the hands of two or three, and they were the Borough Committee. The members had told him that they did not know who had let the Gardens, and he asked was one man to rule the Council ? He strongly objected to the menagerie or Samuels being on the Gardens when townspeople were warned off. Mr George here read a letter from Mr Samuels asking for the use of the ground, and said it was signed W. Williams," and "R. Mumford." (Loud laughter). The Mayor: I don't know what Mr Samuels' show was. Mr Jones A boxing saloon. The Town Clerk A cinematographe. Mr Mumford repeated, that he objected to the mena- gerie. The Mayor said he thought it was simply a matter of taste. (Renewed laughter). Mr Mumford did not object to fighting human beings but to wild beasts. Alderman T. James said he gave the permission for the menagerie. Mr Mumford You had no right, sir. Alderman T. James said he was the deputy-Mayor, and he had the right to give the permission, but he did not know when doing it that it would prevent any member of the Council letting his field. Mr Mumford: I have no field to let, sir. Alderman T. James I did not mention your name. The Mayor said he was afraid he was the one who ought to take umbrage. The Town Clerk said the matter of letting the gardens was in the hands of the Mayor or deputy-Mayor by arrangement with the lessee of the tolls. Mr Williams said their treatment of the gardens was very illogical, and he agreed with what Mr Mumford had said. They were indebted to outsiders for the price that was paid in tollage. The Mayor said the clause in the report meant a distinct vote of censure upon the mayor and deputy- mayor, who very kindly did a lot of work for him. Mr Williams said he quite believed the mayor and deputy-mayor had the full right to do what they had done. Mr Mumford: Why exclude the whole townspeople from the ground ? Alderman John James said the reason the Town Council passed the resolution was that the Jubilee Gardens were the carpet shaking place for the great portion of the town. He believed the deputy-mayor was right, but thought the Jubilee Gardens ought not to be let for anything at all except the recreation of the inhabitants. (Hear, hear). The Mayor agreed with what Alderman James had said, and thought nothing could be more desirable than for the Corporation to express its opinion as to what I purposes the Jubilee Gardens should be devoted. Then the Mayor would properly and loyally carry out the wishes of the Council. A society which did so much for the town, the Perrotts trustees, were now carefully considering how best they could improve that portion of the town by removing the limekilns &c. (Applause.) The Council then decided to expunge the portion of the report to which Alderman T. James objected. REAPPOINTMENT OF MEDICAL OFFICER. On the motion of Alderman J. James, Dr Brigstocke was re-appointed medical officer. The Mayor said it wouid be difficult to find a more able, a more diligent, and more zealous medical officer than Dr Brigstocke. Dr Brigstocke briefly acknowledged the appointment, and expressed his appreciation of the Mayor's kind remarks. SANITARY COMMITTEE. At a special Sanitary Committee meeting held-oii 23rd August, all members present, the committee appointed the following persons as foreman and workmen Clifford I Morgan, Charles Thomas, Henry Thomas, Wm. Davies, and John Jones. At a committee meeting held 26th September, bills were examined and ordered to be paid amounting to 1192 6s 10d. They also recommended the erection of a dwarf wall on the north of High-street, from the Three Lamps to the top of the steps, aud that the pitching there be repaired and widened. The committee recommended the acceptance of the following tenders for scavenging, &c., for the ensuing year:—House refuse, No. 1, Thomas Lewis, ;£;)0; stone carting, No. 2, Joseph Lewis, as per his tender, yards to be read for tons supply of horses, &c., No. 3, Morris and Thomas Williams, as per tender coal, No. 4, Morris aDd Thomas Williams, as per tender for refuse, No. 5, William Warlow, X.I. The committee also recommended the construction of a storm-water sewer to relieve the main sewer in High-street, and the construction of a lock-up shed in the corporation yard, to keep workmen's tools and plant. The Sanitary In- spector reported the result of the notices given to the various persons for nuisances, with which the committee were satisfied. They recommended the appointment of Thomas Lawrence and William Evans as roadmen. Alderman J. James moved the adoption of the report. Mr Williams said he thought the Council should appoint the workmen and not the committee. Mr Bishop, however, pointed out that the Council had instructed the committee to make the appointments. Mr Evans said he voted for the resolution instructing the committee, but he thought they would only recommend. The Mayor remarked that he was afraid Mr Evans, like many in a higher House, had got into the wrong lobby. (Laughter). The report was then adopted. ANOTHER NEW WATER SCHEME. Mr George asked for a pipe to be brought across the road from the market to his premises so that he could use the Skerryscant water for washing purposes. The cost would not be much, and he would make all the connections at his own cost. The Council consented, Mr Williams adding that Mr George was paying for water and was not receiving it. The Town Clerk presented Mr Woodward's bill for services in connection with the Little Newcastle water scheme, which amounted to JE26. Mr Thomas: I should like to know when we shall hear about this new water scheme ? The Mayor: I think it is a very reasonable request. Mr Jones said they were promised two schemes, and perhaps they could have one that night. Alderman John James denied that he had ever promised any scheme. Mr George said he was quite sure Mr James gave them a distinct promise. Mr Jones was quite sure he clearly heard two words, gravitation and pumping." Alderman John James again denied that he promised a scheme at their last meeting. Mr Thomas Mr James may not have meant it but he did say it. The Mayor said he understood that Mr James was going to bring forward a scheme. (Hear, hear). He might say that there was a scheme in the course of preparation, and it seemed feasible and right, but they should have a little more time to verify and complete it before it was brought before the council. No one was more anxious than he was to see that water question put in a proper state as quickly as possible, but he was of opinion they would gain by delaying it for a few weeks. At the same time he thought they should ask the Town Clerk to push forward and call a meeting as quickly as possible. The Town Clerk remarked that the scheme was very much in embryo, and there had been a little expense in connection with the scheme. He proposed to hand the papers over to the Medical Officer for him to consider. Mr Jones did not understand why there should be any secrecy. He objected to having anything sprung upon them. The Town Clerk: There will be no springing upon you in any way. Mr Jones, continuing, said they should be told in out- line what the scheme was, and timely notice should be given. Mr Bishop I understand, Mr Town Clerk, that you are paid for preparing it ? The Town Clerk No, I am not. The Mayor said there was a scheme, but they wanted to make their ground more secure before they asked the Council to consider it. If it was not considered by the Council the Council would not be called upon to pay the expense connected with the scheme. Mr Williams observed that most of them knew the sources of supply for 16 or 20 miles round, and they were all very curious. He was for one. (Laughter). The Mayor replied that he should be only too glad if it was his scheme to tell them, but the expense was so infinitesimally small that he thought it would be well for them to hold their hands for a while. The Town Clerk It is a scheme of a private individual in the town who has handed me the papers. Mr George Is it a gravitation scheme ? The Town Clerk: It is a gravitation scheme. The Mayor said if any member of the Corporation would bring forward a scheme they would be glad to consider it. Those gentlemen who refused the last scheme were more morally bound to bring forward a scheme than those who were in favour of it. (Hear, hear). Mr Williams enquired wbether pressing the gentleman for the scheme would incur them in any expense ? They knew from experience what it meant, and they had had a big bill from Mr Woodward that night. The Town Clerk If you don't adopt the scheme not one shilling expense will the Corporation have to pay. Mr Thomas What is the scheme ? Mr Mumford: I have seen a draft of the plans, and it will not cost you a penny if you don't adopt the scheme. It is at Bolton Hill. The Mayor said Dr. Brigstocke would consider the scheme and give them his opinions. Personally, he (the Mayor) was exceedingly anxious to see that water question settled before his term of office expired. (Hear, hear) The matter then dropped, and the meeting ended.

HAVERFORDWEST CYCLING CLUB. — A Carnival will be held on Thursday, October 20th. Harvest Thanksgiving Services will be held on Sunday, October 9th, at the Albany Church. Th,) Rev. Owen Jacobs will preach. The collections will be on behalf of the Infirmary.
W. & A. Gilbey, who obtained the Gold Medal for the best cultivated Vineyard in Franco, have just supplied Her Majesty The Queen, H.R.H. The Prince of Wales, aud H.R.H. The Duke of York with a large quantity of their Chateau Loudenne Cloret, 1893. This same Wine can be obtained of their 2,850 Agents throughout the United Kingdom at 2-1/ per dozen. Five vans containing Bailey's roundabouts, drawn by a traction engine, got beyond control on Friday in descending a very steep hill to High Wycombe. All the vans capsized, and the damage is estimated at over zei,ooo.
"BETWEEN YOU AND ME." Water schemes and discussions seem to be as plentiful as blackberries, only they are not so fruitful. The people are tiring of the lackadaisical policy of the Council, and the Mayor himself believes there has been quite enough delay. At the Council meeting last night there was another lively debate, and another scheme promulgated. This time, however, it is not an official proposition, and the locality of the supply is said to be Bolton Hill. I know nothing of the details and will not prej udge. It has the merit of being far ? less expensive than the Little Newcastle ? scheme. Some of the Councillors say there is no water in that district to be got by gravitation. The Mayor has expressed a wish to see this question settled before his year of office expires, and another special meeting to receive the opinions of the Medical Officer, and to discuss the scheme, will no doubt be called at an early date. I '1 The Mayor indicated at tho Council meeting last night what will probably be the future of the Jubilee Gardens. Perrotts trustees are going to do all that is possible to improve that district by the removal of the lime kilns, and it would much euhance the appearance of the town's main approach if an ornamental and useful recroation ground were made of the gardens. This could be done at a small expense, and I hope the time is near when we shall see something in this direction. They have too long been regarded as an eye-sore, and have caused a few angry discussions at Council meetings. That last night was needless, and bad feeling was engendered without reasonable cause. The attendance of school children in the locality is far from satisfactory, and some means will have to be devised to improve the percentages. One instance, and I am told that there are many like it, is that of a child who since June, 1892, has only made 970 attendances out of a possible 1935. After the School Board meeting last Tuesday a number of parents were cautioned for negligence in this respect. They fail to realise that they are inj uring the interests of their children by not sending them to school to obtain a sound elementary education, so very necessary to all in life's career. a- Dean Howell has issued an appeal for Y,12,000, required to restore the eastern group of buildings, which form an important and beautiful part of St. David's Cathedral, and for other improvements. In so poor and remote a locality the responsibility is a heavy one, and it is scarcely creditable to the love and care of Churchmen for their Church that these splendid buildings have been allowed to remain so long in a state of dilapidation and decay, especially when it is considered that the late Bishop Thirlwall described them as the noblest monument of ecclesiastical architecture in Wales." Mr J. Oldrid Scott, under whose direction the proposed restora- tion is to be carried out, says: I I Many of our cathedrals are larger and more enriched than St. Davids, but none possess greater indi- viduality, and more characteristic features in stone and woodwork." Dean Howell closes his appeal in these words Engaged as we are in effecting a thorough restoration of the Mother Church of the See once presided over by the patron Saint of Wales, we feel that we may justly claim support, not only from all Welsh Churchmen, but from British Christians of all creeds and classes, both within and without the Principality." Subscriptions may extend over four years. ■r 7(;- I admire the determination with which the Milford District Council has approached the question of providing a fire brigade. But they must not let the matter rest with voting X120, They got nearly this far last Feb- ruary, and then slumbered. The purchase of an engine and the formation of a brigade ought now to be settled without delay. The fire-fiend gives no warning, and even after the present preliminaries engine, hose, and hydrants may be wanting when most need ed. 1f. Milford people are on the tip-toe of ex- pectation regarding the extension and im- provement of the docks. Engineers and experts are busy making plans, contracts are being entered into, and the fish market is to be removed to the Hakin side-all in the near future-in anticipation of the new Canadian line of steamers, preparations for which are complete in America. The Great Western Railway Company are giving the project moral encouragement and financial support. In the words of Dr. Griffith "There are better times for Milford." This buoyancy is shown by the fact that the tolls for the Victoria Bridge have been sold for zC40 more this year than last. There is nothing more degrading than the use of obscene language, and there is nothing which grates more on the sensitive ear than bad language from a woman-the fair sex, from whom we expect delicacy and refinement. It is shockingly repulsive, and I join in the Mayor's lament that it seems so prevalent. The police are receiving so many complaints that only prosecution will keep it within bounds. I shudder to think that at the end of the nineteenth century civilisation we are becoming more depraved, and indulge the hope that it is only a tem- porary aberration, common to humanity.

I Do You Know P That the Milford magistrates were occupied over five hours on Wednesaay hearing police cases, every minute of the time being utilised. That the court will have to be held in the morning instead of afternoon if this pressure of business continues. That the cases revealed many phases of life in the town, and the rough element was conspicious. That the language and accusations in some of the casss were revolting in the extreme, those from Hakin being the worst. That while the cases were being heard there was the greatest difficulty to keep silence and order amongst the public, and on two or three occasions the magistrates had to rebuke the offenders. That one decision of the magistrates was loudly applauded. That one solicitor was not far wrong when he said adjournments were the hot-bed of manufactured evidence. That absentee defendants get no sympathy from the Milford magistrates, two of them being made to pay 5s. extra each for their non-appearance. That one defendant preferred gaol to payment on being sentenced, but her excited determination gave way to sober reason later on, and she was given time to pay. That one peculiarity of the cases was the large number of women implicated as complainants, defendants, and witnesses, and four of them were not of English nation- ality. That boys will be boys, but P.C. Warlow thinks the juveniles of Hakin are the most mischievous. That the lesson to be learnt from one of the cases is that the owner of a trap cannot give even young ladies a lift on the road unless he has a carriage license. That 1. C. J. Beaven, of Treorchy, has accepted the challenge issued by J. M. Williams to run 129 yards over six flights of hurdles for X-5 or £10 a side, and the race is arranged for to-morrow. That Pembroke Dockyard just now is a veritable hive of industry, and progress is noticeable everywhere. That 1,500 men are now working on the cruiser Spartiate to complete her for launching at the end of next month. I That the Queen's Yacht is also rapidly approaching completion, the building of which has been in hand since last December. That the First Lord of the Admiralty says ships can be built at Pembroke Dock much quicker and quite as cheap as in private yards. That this probably accounts for the great extensions and improvements that are being made to the dockyard, and the large number of extra men being employed. That it is said over a quarter of a million of money is to bo spent in dockyard work during the next twelve months. That the building of the new jetty is proceding apace. That the statement that the Duke of York is to visit Pembroke Dock for the launch of the Spartiate next month is now declared to be premature. That the Roose magistrates were engaged some time on Saturday hearing the romantic details of the career and troubles of a man with two wives. That a new steam trawler for the Castle Company, the Henecastle, arrived at Milford, on Monday. That there have been good supplies of fish at Milford during the week, and as the cold weather approaches the prices improve. That a new order arrived on the 1st for the Port Sanitary Authority to inspect all cattle and merchandise boats, including fishing smacks, coming into the Haven. That the order is being thoroughly carried out at Neyland, Milfoid and elsewhere. That the trip to Manchester on Friday was well patronised, 70 going from Milford, 100 from Neyland, 200 from Pembroke Dock, and 50 from Haverfordwest. That Messrs Luxton and Barrow, fish merchants, sent their men by the trip, paying their fares and giving them oney to spend. That the train had to wait two hours at Whitland, where there was a free fight amongst the excursionists. That the football season at Milford commences on Saturday with a match with the South Wales Borderers. m That there was a lively meeting of the Town Council last night, and a passage-of-arms between Mr Mumford and the ex-Mayor. That there was loud laughter when it was found Mr Mumford was condemning what he himself had sanc- tioned. That it was only persistency which brought out the few details we have of the new water scheme. That there are now hopes of the Jubilee Gardens being made a source of pleasure ere long. That the Mayor's handsome donation of ten gunieas to the Fire Brigade is much appreciated, as funds are needed. om_. PERIWINKLE.
OVERLAPPING IN CHRISTIAN SERVICE. To the Editor of tlte Milford Haven Telegraph." Sy I ask jour powerful aid against the waste of money and men lyl,.d in this wretched principle of ?p-p y- g in Christian service. The British and Foreign Sailors' Society has sent me on a visit to their stations in the South Wales ports. Here at Milford Haven the Society has laboured for some thirty years. Its chief work, though not exclusively, has been among the wind-bound fleets in this magnificent harbour of refuge. To meet this need we have a small sailing boat, a rowing boat and a punt. The sailing boat might be a little larger, safer, and better, particularly for the winter months. A few years ago the President of our Milford Haven Branch, the late Mr George Harris, of Rickeston, was visited by our veteran sailor missionary, Mr B. Hughes, who would on stormy Sundays face this haven, lashed with its winds and tides, single-handed in his frail little boat. The result of that visit was (as fishermen began to come into the docks) a cheque of X50 towards founding a Fishermen's and Seamen's Institute. This cheque was payable to the British and Foreign Sailors' Soeietg, and as a local committee seemed ready to go forward with the scheme, the cheque was duly signed and sent, in good faith, for the purpose intended. The place was opened, and it has been much frequented by fishermen. Some time ago, as its income was a little short, we were asked to help, and we offered either to take it over and work it, or give Y- 10 a year. The latter alternative was accepted. On Saturday I found the committee were specially summoned for Monday next to arrange the transfer of the Institute to the 'Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen.' I found a mission smack of this society in the dock, and that she had been there for weeks instead of on the deep sea." In fact, for a time two mission smacks were on this shallow dock sea; the object, I understand, was, and is, to establish a mission on shore. This Deep Sea Mission had a splendid start a few years ago it caught hold," the imagination was stirred, it was to be on the d-eep sea But now it seems the policy of this most fascinating "Deep Sea Mission" is to compete on shore, and add another to an already (in some ports) over-drugged market. Even if other societies were not in occupation of a port, it is a question whether it would be wise to change a deep sea to a long-shore policy. It might be the beginning of the end, so far as the Deep Sea Mission is concerned, and the fishermen afloat might again find themselves between the devil and the deep sea. I hear it is intended to circle our British ports, whether others are in possession or not, but perhaps it may not be too late to arrest this policy. The fishing industry has so developed in Milford Haven that our missionary had long suggested a Home with sleeping accommodation, etc., and the smack owners invited him to a conference, and it is understood that if the Dock Company, to which they have brought considerable revenue, would give a plot of ground, they would erect a Fisherman's Home and Institute, but not attached to these competing societies. To add to the number, the St. Andrew Waterside Mission has recently come into the port, and in addition to inviting fishermen to a small Episcopal church are erecting a shed in the dock, which I note is being built on a sandy foundation. The Nonconformist churches also open their doors to any fishermen and their families now resident here. The Mission to Seamen was started by a Godly clergy- man by his work afloat in the Bristol Channel. When I was a youngster at sea, it was known as the Mission to Seamen afloat. It began like the Deep Sea Mission, the former to merchant seamen afloat; the latter to fisher- men on the deep sea. No one could object to a change of policy so long, as serious over-lapping and absurd competition were not the outcome. An amused apprentice wrote to his mother concerning one port to say "Directly the ship was anchored, a sky pilot came aboard and was referred to the captain, the next was handed over to the chief mate, the third to the next in command." With your permission I hope to show later some of the over-lapping in London and other ports with the painful and wasteful competition which follow, and possibly suggest some practieal remedy. After eighty years' work in London and other ports, at home and abroad, by our British, and and other ports, Society, over-lapping and competition bids fair to become a very sad business. If, therefore, good work can be done and extended with a minimum of waste, my Board would gladly join in any workable arrangement. I have the honour to bo Your obedient servant, EDWARD W. MATTHEWS, Secretary. British and Foreign Sailor's Society, Mercer Street, Shadwell, London, E.
A FAMILY IX PERIL.—A series of exciting scenes were witnessed early on Monday morning at a fire in a Belfast dwelling-house, occupied by a man named Cherry, who was awakened by a crackling noise. Opening the bedroom door, he was almost suffocated by an inrush of smoke. After considerable difficulty he lowered his wife and child from the upper window by means of a blanket torn into strips, while he himself was subsequently rescued by a ladder just as the roof fell in.
Narberth. ILLEGAL FISHING.—On Thursday at the Police Court, Luther Phelps and John Thomas, both of Amroth, were charged with fishing for salmon in Carmarthen Bay. Defendants were fined 5s each and costs. IN PURSUIT OF GAME.—James Cole, of Landshipping, charged Joseph Davies, clerk at Hook Colliery, with being in pursuit of game on his farm on the 1st Septem- l ber. Defendant was fined X2 and zCl 14s costs, or one month's imprisonment. AN EVENING WITH ISAAC WATTS.On Sunday evening, at the Tabernacle Congregational Chapel, Rev. R. Sirhowy Jones conducted a Praise Service, consisting exclusively of Watt's hymns, interspersed by biographical sketches and explanatory and critical notes on the hymns. Among other things, the rev. gentleman said that much 01 the hymnology of the past was objectionable to the refined taste and better educated mind of to-day. There was a revolt against hymns that were defective in sense, taste, and true sentiment. Each generation would revise its hymn-books, and only hymns of real merit could stand the test of time. Watts must be judged, not by the standards and religious needs of to-day, but by the sbndards of his own times, and the value of his hymns to the Christian church for the last two hundred years. Many of his hymns were immortal. The value of a good hymn is inestimable. It is the highest expression of the spirit ot true devotion. 111 ere can be no more inspiring sight to men, or more pleasing sight to angels, than a great congregation pouring forth its devotions through the medium of a noble hymn. In some churches, the ckment of professionalism was too prominent, and that to the detriment of the spirituality of its praise. Pro- fessionalism interfered also with the free consecration of the church's own talent. It would be difficult to super- sede the old method of congregational singing. Watte was born in a stormy day for congregationalists. They were persecuted, and some put to death. His father was put in prison for fidelity to religious convictions. Later, Wittt's himself had to face persecution, but he never swerved from the path of conscience. He was offered a free education if he would renounce his Nonconformity, but he was a staunch little Dissenter, and so he declined. He was a congregational minister in London for years, and lived for over thirty years at the house of Sir Thomas Abbey, where he met the best society of the day, upon whom he exercised a holy influence. Most insignificant in personal appearance, he was yet a splendid example of the truth of the saying The mind's the standard of the man." His name will be reverenced for many a generation, and his best thoughts, like ministering angels, will traverse the Christian globe on the multitudinous wings of song. During the evening, eight of Watts's hymns were sung by the large congregation. Everybody seemed to join in the singing, and the service througho.1 was inspirational and impressive.

NEYLAND NOTES. The Parish Council will be called upon to make their last rate next Monday. If due economy is observed there is no reason, despite the many improvements re- quired, why the rates for the Urban District Council should be materially larger than they are now. But this is talking of the future. Next April is looking ahead too far, and many things may happen ere then as regards Council matters. I regret to hear of the serious illness of Mr Thomas Jones, inspector of the G.W.R. engineering department, who is much respected in the town, of which he ina. old inhabitant. He is a very old servant too of the Company, and all who know him will wish for a speedy and complete recovery. '.ti That a crier has made himself famous, and caused a lot of humour, by declaring from a cart in High Street, the following medley Lost between the dockyard and Little Honeyborough an English silver lever watch; finder will receive 5s. reward by bringing it to me. Anyone finding her after this notice, and don't turn her up, will be persecuted." A byestander shouted the words" wind her up," and "prosecuted," but the crier took no heed. Where ignorance is bliss 'tis folly to be wise." The cattle trade from Ireland to Neyland is increasing. Nearly 700 head were landed from the Inuisfallen 011 Tuesday. It is said this kind of merchandise pays the steamers better than the passenger traffic. The necessity of a police station is felt more every week, and many are the incidents that could be recor- ded of the unsightliness and indecency. occasioned. The arrest made by P.S. Thomas on Monday is sufficient in itself. It is indeed quite time the County Council took some definite steps in the matter. The question has been under consideration nearly two years and we are little, if any, nearer. Will Mr Coram en- liven matters a little It is a positive disgrace that Neyland is without a police station. Let us live in a state of decency and civilisation as far as possible. On Monday night 21 very fine horses, 10 officers, and 20 men arrived at Neyland, en route for Waterford from the mancevures. I am told that it would be very difficult to find more excellent horses than these were. At last the Local Government Board has decided that Parish Councils have the power to repair stiles and fly gates, or to put one in place of the other without the owner's consent, or to erect fly gates with the owner's consent. This is the latest reading of subsection 2 section 13 of the Parish Councils Act. This version ought to have come sooner. It is of little use to us now in our chrysallis state. The ambulance class, which has done such praise- worthy work, is to be re-started in a week or two, and is expected to prove quite as popular as the last class. A cordial invitation is given to all who wish to join. The instruction given has often proved to be a great boon to those who have met with an accident, and the value of first-aid can hardly be over-estimated. I hear that a brutal assault has been committed upoa a Neyland boy, and the man is to be summoned for assault. It is likely the case will prove serious. "ARGUS."

ROBBING THE DEAD. SENSATIONAL CASE AT PEMBROKE The Pembroke Police Court was crowded on Monday, among the cases down for hearing being a charge against Mrs Ann Gwyther, wife of James Gwyther, of stealing a robe from the dead body of a still born child. Defen- dant, who is a midwife, attended Mrs Richards, wife of the landlord of the Royal George Inn, Pembroke, who was prematurely confined. The body was dressed in a robe, placed in a coffin, and given to the defendant to bury. Accordiug to the evidence she opened the box aud removed the robe, afterwards getting the Monkton sexton to bury the body. The robe was seen on the defendant's daughter-in-law's child and recognised by Mrs Richards. The police were informed, and inquiries led to the defendant being arrested. The Bench, after a lengthy hearing, inflicted a fine of £ 5 or a month's imprisonment.

He was quite sure that their services if required-which he hoped would not be the case—would be quite as prompt and efficient as they had been in the past. At some future time he hoped to have the brigade at Picton Castle, where they could test their appliances.—At the close, his Worship informed the hon. captain (Mr R. T. P. Williams) that he would be pleased to subscribe ten guineas towards the brigade funds.—The brigade gave three cheers for the Mayor and Lady Philipps. MARRIAGE OF MR ARTHUR G. A. PHILLIPS. -On Thursday afternoon the marriage was solemnised at the Congregational Church, St. Helen's, in the presence of a large number of friends, of Miss Mary Elizabeth King, youngest daughter of the late Mr John King, of Prescot-road, to Mr Arthur G. A. Phillips, eldest son of Mr Frederick Phillips, of Hill Street, Haverfordwest. Mr Phillips was formerly engaged as an engineer at Messrs Daglish's St. Helen's Foundry, put now resides at Bedford. The ceremony, which was by special license, was performed by the Rev. J A Mitchell, Principal of Nottingham Institute, who came over specially for the occasion. The bride's dress was of grey bengaline, trimmed with white silk moire, chiffon, with white hat, and bouquet of choice white flowers. The bridesmaids were Miss Phillips (sister of the bridegroom) and Mrs Halton (sister of the bride). One was attired in lemon coloured blouse with grey skirt and hat to match, and the other in a fawn coloured tailor-made costume, with dainty trimmed hat. The bride was given away by Mr Frederick W. King (brother of the bride), and Mr George R. Cooper officiated as best man. After the cere- mony the party returned to the residence of the bride's mother, where luncheon was served, and Mr and Mrs Phillips subsequently left for Matlock, where they will spend the honeymoon. Both the bride and bridegroom were formerly teachers at the Sunday School connected with the Ragged School, Waterloo-street, and on Sunday last the teachers presented them with a handsome silver tea service, the presentation being made by Colonel W. W. Pilkington. They have also received numerous other handsome presents. DR. BARNARDO'S YOUNG HELPERS LEAGUE. —Miss Sander, Organisation Secretary of the above League for South Wales and Monmouthshire, is now on a visit to this town for the purpose of establishing a branch of this excellent organisation. The aims of the Society are set forth in circulars which are being dis- tributed by the hon. secretary, and of which the following is an extract: The Young Helpers' League' is a Voluntary Union of Young People from happy homes all the world over, who agree to do all they can to help crippled, blind, deaf and dumb, and incurably sick children of the waif and stray class under Dr. Barnardo's care. Over thirty-eight thousand boys and girls have already been enrolled as companions of the League, pledged to work heartily on its behalf. There are two divisions of the Y.H.L. junior up to 18 years of age, and senior over 18 years of age. Every junior com- panion, in return for the half-yearly subscription of Gd, and every senior companion, in return for the subscrip- tion of Is 3d, will receive from the Secretary of the League (1) a card of membership for the ensuing year, (2) a collecting card or box, and (3) every month during the year a copy of the illustrated magazine, Young Helpers' League." To each companion who secures twelve junior, or six senior companions, and col- lects Xi, will be awarded a solid silver badge containing the Crown Royal, and bearing the words, in blue enamel, "Young Helpers' League." This beautiful badge can be supplied cither as a Brooch for girls, or as a Charm for boys. The following are the ladies who have kindly con- sented to support the movement in Haverfordwest:- Patroness, Lady Philipps, Picton Castle; president, Lady C. Allen, Boulston; vice-presidents, Mrs Harrison, St. Mary's Vicarage; Mrs Rowe, Cleeve House; Miss Williams, Hill Lane Miss Thomas, Wilton House treasurer, Mr Lewis, Lloyds' Bank; secretaries; Mrs Sidney Rees, Spring Gardens; Miss Wilson, Bron-y- rhiw.
sibility help must be sought from private subscription, for it is impossible to keep the Classes going simply on the Government grant and the students' fees. Many of the students could not attend did they not receive help, and it is a Divine command that the strong should help to bear the burdens of the weak. It is perhaps forgotten by parents who send their children to the Secondary schools in Haverfordwest, where at a very small cost they are able to receive a thoroughly good education, and to our public schools, that they could not possibly reap such benefits had it not been for the generosity of men and women who in the days gone by were anxious to ad vance the cause of education and to bring its advan- tages within the reach of many. If this were realized more clearly it would possibly follow that many who now look upon the share they bear in maintaining elementary education as an unwelcome burden, would pay their rates with something like pleasure amounting to gratitude. It may naturally be expected that those who have themselves received the privileges of education will wish to extend these same privileges to others. It may be mentioned that the Haverfordwest Art Classes hold a very high position in the standard of work done, and tho successes won, when compared with classes in the Princi- pality that are very much larger numerically and stronger financially. A glance at the recent examination result will bear out this statement.
