He remained unconscious for several minutes but subsequently recovered, and was able to proceed home. He sustained a nasty cut on the head, and nose. Dr. T.

POWlS REYNOLDS.— We regret to announce the somewhat sudden, and to Haver- fordwest people, quite unexpected death, of Mr T. Powis Reynolds, architect. Mr Reynolds, who was in his 51th j year, it will be remembered went to Milford to reside some 12 months ago, having been appointed" Surveyor to the Milford Urban District Council. Although never very successful in business Mr Reynolds possessed great abilities as an architect, indeed people said it was his extreme regard for punctilio which prevented him acquiring considerable reputation in his profession. He was greatly loved and esteemed by his friends and acquaintances, and his genial mauner made him a great favourite in Milford Haven. LOCAL EFFORT FOR THE WIDOW AND ORPHAN FUND.—A very simple yet praiseworthy effort to raise subscriptions for the Widow and Orphan Fund of our soldiers in the Transvaal War was made on Guy Fawkes night, when a committee of children conceived the idea of collecting a sum of money with which to purchase fireworks, which were afterwards let off in a field in Barn Street, a small charge for admission being made. By this means the very useful sum of £ 1 Is was raised, and will be handed to the fund which Col. Quirk is organising for the same purpose. The following girls and boys composed the committee:—Misses GWeli Williams and Mary Wilson, and Messrs Edgar Williams. Reginald Morgan, Bertie Evans. Master R. H. Williams collected the gate money. Mr W. R. Morgan superintended the proceedings.
Haverfordwest Town Council I- Elections. RESULT OF TIIE POLL. I The election to fill four vacancies on the Haverfordwest Town Council caused by the retirement in rotation of Messrs Bishop, George, Jones, and Thomas, took place on Wednesday last at the Market Hall. All four offered themselves as candidates for re-election, and in addition Mr Davies and Mr Mclvenzie, a former member of the Council, were nominated. There was a good deal of interest taken in the contest, though there was nothing in the way of excitement even at the'" declaration of the poll which took place shortly after nine o'clock. The polling booths were open from'S o'clock in the morning until 8 at night, after which hour the public were cleared out of the Market Hall and the counting of votes commenced. As soon as the counting of the votes had concluded, Sir Charles Philipps, Mayor, declared the result from one of the windows as follows Bishop ￼ ) ?) 7 p.. 587 Davies (new member) .???. 561 George 4:?! !i: ￼ McKenxie .J.?. 292 He formally declared the first four duly elected mem- bers of the Town Council. Mr Bishop, who on appearing was received with cheers, said he was obliged to them for tho handsome manner in which they had placed him at the head of the poll that day. It was the unanimous voice of the electors independent of party politics. Mr Jones he said was the next on the list, and they might remember that there was very little between them this time three years. He (Mr Bishop) said he was very grateful for their support. He would enter the Council Chamber again with the same fearlessness as heretofore and he hoped when he came to face them in three years hence he would have the same to say. (Cheers). Mr Jones who also received a good reception said he most heartily thanked them for the magnificent way in which they had rallied round him. He was only ten votes behind Mr Bishop aud ho was quite satisfied with that. In fact lie was quite as pleased as if he had been equal to, or had more votes than Mr Bishop. Five hundred and eighty seven was a very gratifying number indeed, placing him only ten votes behind Mr Bishop. It showed the good opinion they held of him three years ago is still retained and lie could only express the hope that at the end of his tenure of office that good opinion would still be held. Mr Davies thanked them for the position they had placed him. The number of votes he received was far beyond his most sanguine hopes or expectations He hoped that he would merit the confidence they had reposed in him, and that lie would give them satisfaction. He would do his best to reduce the heavy rates which exist at present. Mr George thanked the electors for having returned him the third time. He would do all in his power to deserve the confidence they had placed in him, and thanked them for the honour. Mr Thomas as one of the defeated candidates thanked those who had voted for him that day. He had the whole force of the Conservative party against him, but they would no doubt have a day of reckoning. Mr McKenzie thanked the 300 people who had voted for him. He never got a chance in the election. (Cheers) Mr Bishop then proposed a vote of thanks to Sir Chas. Philipps for presiding. He was glad to say thev could not have had a more pleasant or happy contest. Mr Jones seconded the resolution which Sir Charles suitably acknowledged after which the proceedings ended. PEMBROKE DOCK. The (Alderman J. II. Bowling) announced the poll at :2.) minutes past nine as follows Councillor William Phillips, forage and coal merchant, 610; Conllcillor Angus M'Coll, J.P., retired engineer, 549; John Lawrence, managing clerk, 189: and Daniei Smith, retired workman, her Majesty's Dockyard, -170. The first three were declared elected. The first, two were retiring councillors. In the Pembroke Ward there was no contest, but Councillors J. W. Penney, grocer Bees Phillips, cabinet maker, two old members, were nomin- ated, and a new candidate for the third vacancy was forthcoming in Mr John Mugford, retired Llovd's surveyor. The above candidates were declared elected, Mr II. Pagett's nomination paper being found incorrect.
Death of Col. Douglas-Willan. | Uur readers will learn with extreme regret of the death, which took place at his residence in High Street on i Monday, of Colonel Douglas-Willan. The deceased, who hal reached the advanced age of 83 years, was in the enjoyment of his usual health until Thursday last, when he was seized with a fit of weakness, from which he never actually recovered, and, gradually sinking, passed peacefully away about 3.30 on Monday afternoon. The Colonel will be sadly missed. His strikingly imposing personality and genial manner were characteristic features of the man, and made him a conspicuous figure respected and beloved by all who knew him. Colonel Douglas Willan, although a staunch Conservative, was not in any sense a bigoted politician indeed, he hated intolerance of any description, and any movement or institution. which sought to over-ride or suppress the liberty or free opinion of his fellow men, received but scant sympathy at his 'hands. It was probably this kindly disposition which made him abstain from associating himself prom- inently with any of the political institutions of the town or neighbourhood. If, however, he treated political matters with an indifference which the more active members of his party did not admire, he exhibited a keen and intelligent interest in the affairs of the town, and on the much vexed Water Question his views were very pro- nounced. Needless to say he deeply deplofed the want of cohesion among members of the Corporation, and the lack of unanimity on this important subject. Col. Douglas- Willan came to Haverfordwest in the year '54, and at that time being in the prime of life his commanding figure, and military bearing were subjects of general remark. He had been promoted to the rank of Adjutant of the Royal Artillery Militia, which then had its head- quarters here, and his connection with the regiment was an incident in the Colonel's career of which he cherished fond recollections. The men were als D greatly attached to him, and in this respect it might be said that he occupied much the same position as did the late Col. John Owen. If Colonel Willan's consideration for the mem- bers of his regiment was such as to endear him to the hearts of the rank and file, as well as to his brother officers, he never relaxed military discipline, and few better soldiers have ever entered Haverfordwest. As a sportsman the Colonel yielded to no man, and in the early days of his life he acquired a good deal of celebrity as a gentleman flat racer indeed he is stated to have enjoyed the distinction of being classed as one of the finest gentlemen flat riders in England. As a judge of horse- flesh he was well-known to be an authority, and the mount that satisfied his critical eye could safely be accepted as answering all the requirements of a thorough good horse. He was a good shot, and regularly indulged in this kind of sport until failing sight compelled him to put aside the gun. Fond of all kinds of animals, when increasing innrmities necessitated his retirement from the active pursuits of sport, the Colonel obtained as companions a couple of colley dogs, and these became great favourites, and accompamüd him in his walks abroad almost to the last. Colonel Douglas- Willan was once married, but his wife pre-deceased him by forty years, dying shortly after taking up their residence in Haverfordwest. There were seven children of the marriage—four daughters and three sous—only three of whom-two sous and a daughter— now survive. Colonel Douglas-Willan was a native of Middlesex, and was Lord of the Manor of Twyford Abbey, in that county. The funeral, which will be a public one, will take place at 2 o'clock to-morrow (Thursday), and not 12 as previously announced. The family and relatives of the late Colonel Douglas- Willan find it impossible to reply individually to the many kind enquiries and expressions of sympathy they have been the recipients of in their bereavement, and trust this intimation may be accepted as an acknowledg- ment of their gratitude.
I The Influenza Fiend. Influenza seems this year to have made its appearance rather earlier than usual. True, we have come to regard this unwelcome visitor as a sort of annual, and a very hardy one too, unfortunately for mankind. Among a few of the many residents now laid up with the epidemic we hear of Miss Massy, of Chester House, Picton Place, who seems to have been subjected to a very severe attack. Her illness was rendered more complica- ted by an affection of the heart. We are glad however to be in a position to assure our readers that there is no further cause for anxiety, and although still extremely weak Miss Massy is progressing very favourably. Dr E. P. Phillips is also once more an invalid, having been confined to his room for the last week with an ex- tremely severe attack of muscular rheumatism. There are few men for whom greater solicitude is manifested by the general public than our old friend Dr Phillips, and it will therefore be welcome news to our readers to learn that the doctor's magnificent constitution has once more resisted the onslaughts of this formidable malady, and that he is now very much better, and hopes if the im- provement is maintained, to shortly journey to Bath for a change. Dr Mills is also laid aside with influenza, contracted probably by attending patients affected with the disease. He has been in bed for several days, but we are glad to learn is slowly getting better. We hope soon to see the estimable doctor about in his usual" form."
I Mayoralty of Haverfordwest. I SIR CHARLES PHILIPPS TO BE RE-ELECTED. At a private meeting of members of the Town Councilheld on Monday night for the selection of a Mayor for the ensuing year it was decided to request Sir Charles Philipps to accept the office. We believe we are correct in stating that Sir Charles lias acceded to the request. The formal election will take place to-morrow (Thursday). Sir Charles Philipps has already occupied the position of Mayor for two years and his re-appointment will be received with unusual satisfaction. Mr Thos. Russell, house decorator, has been appointed High Sheriff for the town and county.
Weslevan Missionary Society. ANXUAL MEETING. There was a largo congregation present at the Wesleyan Chapel on Thursday evening, when the annual meeting of the Missionary Society was held. The proceedings opened with appropriate hymns and prayer. The Rev. W. Pallister read the annual report of the society, from which it appeared that the number of con- verts during the yea r was 309. There were 3,370 teachers and.preaching stations, 3,037 paid agents, and 5,910 un- paid agents. The whole Church membership numbered U>,262, being altogether an iucrease of 1801. The returns submitted did not include France, South Africt and the West Indies, which, however, were assisted in various oegiees Dy this society, it would be seen, he said, from these figures that they had success all along the line, and a substantial increase in connection with each place. The lÙssing of God had rested on the work of the society daring the year, but in some places that blessing had been manifested in a way which deserved spccial acknowledg- ment. They noticed the largest growth of Missionary zeal and feeling in the Church at home, and in the dis- tricts of India, Ceylon and China, their entire Asiatic field, the report showed an increase of Church member- ship along with many other signs of progress. Their missions had to share in the calamities and distress by which various lands were visited. In India they .had plague followed by famine, darkening and disturbing the native mind. They had to report with sorrow that the Sierra Leone district suffered during the year from the ravages of war. Two hundred members of the Church had been killed and hundreds more scattered who could not be accounted for. Five missionaries of the Church Missionary Society were cruelly murdered. A very special feature in the history of the year had been the visit of the Rev. Mr Hartley to India,, Ceylon and China, and it was expected that his able addresses would give a great inspiration to Missionary work. The ordinary in- come showed an increase to £ 1,100 and £ 1807 as compared with three years ago. The total income of the Haver- fordwest branch an increase of £ 16 Os. 2d. (Applause). The Haverfordwest branch stood seventh in the Cardiff and Swansea district, so they had done well for the Missionary cause. Amongst the collectors Mrs Green and Mrs Waddy had collected £ 17 and the Children's Christmas offerings amounted to £ 10 lis. Id. (Applause). Rev. Mr Pratt, of theHydrabad district, then addressed the meeting, describing the difficulties and ultimate success which attended his pioneering efforts in the district in India of which he was given charge. He assumed, he said, that to-night he had no opposition to overcome but that every man was in sympathy with the object of that Missionary meeting, and that they all recognised the obligation which rested on them to publish the Gospel everywhere. What they wanted from him was a plain statement of the work in which he had been engaged, and if he could prove that they in Hydrabad were carrying out a great mission he understood that they on their part bound themselves to sympathy, help and prayer on their behalf. Hydrabad was one of their newest missions. It had not yet reached its majority, being only in its twen- tieth year. The work really began in 1882. Mr Pratt then proceeded to relate the first entrance to that town by three missionaries of whom he was one. It was a market day. They proceeded to the market-place to hold the first Christian service ever held there. While the Rev. Mr Wesley preached, the crowd who had gathered round listened, but as soon as he had finished the crowd be- came very hostile and hooted them out of the villa re. To-day, however, it is the centre of a circuit, and Mr Wesley may preach as long as he likes and no one will molest him. He was now in a position of great influence and power among the people, and had been appointed by the Government one of the agents-to distribute the Goverment funds during the famine. Mr Pratt then proceeded to relate his experiences in the new centre he had been appointed to a hundred miles distant. The difficulties he had to encounter were great and it was a year before they received their first convert. Now, how- ever, they had flourishing chapels in every villages. The natives, he said, distrusted them, and one story gained currency about them was that they were public vaccin- ators. The natives had also heard of a railway which was to be made and they could not understand how the trains moved, so one wiseacre started tho theory that the vaccinator took the energy from the arms of the children, and with this the train was propelled. Mr Pratt proceeded to say tha.t he had to admit that most of their converts were pariahs, but he pointed out that the caste distinction must ulti- mately be blotted out, and at some of the publicschools the missionaries had succeeded in having C^ hristian pariahs admitted on equal terms with the others. A collection was then taken up in aid of the mission fund.
THE WILE EL OF FORTUNE. FROM BANK MANAGRR TO BEGOAR. At Leamington on Monday, a gontlema,nly-lookin<? man, named Franci s Hewitt, of Dudley-street, Binning- bam, was charged with begging. The prisoner, who was formerly a bank manager at Halesowen, and in receipt cf £ 1,500 a year, and who was subsequently in a wood position at Stamford, Lincolnshire, has lost everything. A book containing a list of wealthy people in Birming- ham, Smcthwick, and Leamington, which was found on him, showed that from April 10 till the present time he had begged £ 38 from these people. 1 ha Bonch sent him to gaol for a mouth.
Pembrokeshire Hounds. OPENING MEET AT ST. BOTOLPH'S. a ^ue sporting gathering which assembled Oil ?L.n?y morning at It. Botolph's, the residence I "!r Stokes, to witness the inauguration 01 the season of the Pembrokeshire Hounds. The weather was simply ideal, promising a splendid day for the sport. And such it proved to be, if we except the drenching shower that came down about a quarter to two, when the chase was in full swing. Otherwise, the day was most auspicious in every respect. The new master (Mr Craven), is to be congratulated on his initial fixture, and those who followed him on Wed- nesday, either on horseback, bicycle, or trap, or on foot as many did, will join in wishing him many such meets during the season. The late master (Mr Stokes), sig- nalised the opening by entertaining a large number at St. Botolph's, after which there was mounting in hot haste," and the splendid pack was immediately set to work in a small covert near the house. After an exhaus- tive beat it was found that Reynard was not at home- or if he was he positively refused to respond to the in- vitation to manifest himself—and the hounds were called off.1 Denant Mountain was next appealed to, but with- out success, and the gay cavalcade then proceeded to the gorse just below Deunant house, which has the reputation of never failing to produce a fox, and that too appears to be an unusually sagacious one, for it is said he invariably retains his brush no matter how long the run is. In this instance he maintained the reputation of the cover, by eluding pursuit. After a very few minutes beating, the fox was seen emerging towards the western corner of the cover, and immediately the hounds were on the trek." For a moment he seemed to be lost in the shrubbery, but very soon he was got on foot again, and going off in a north westerly direction he gave the well-mounted followers a splendid gallop across a delightful piece of country. Swinging to the right he made a short detour and then headed for the place from whence at first he flew." It was altogether an excellent run and was got through without a single casualty. The course taken was also most favourable for those who were confined to the roads, and the chase could be observed almost the entire distance. The next move was to Dreen Hill, where another stout fox was soon got up, and gave all excellent run before getting to a ruth. After this Bolton Hill was sought and proved true to its traditions by furnishing a, fox. This one gave some fine sport before getting to ground at Dreen Hill. As compared with previous years the number out was not large. It is understood that in the Pembroke- shire hounds, as in almost every other throughout the kingdom, the falling off is due to the large number of officers who have been withdrawn from the several garrisons for service in South Africa. Amongst those out on horse, cycle or trap, were :—Mr Craven (master), Sir Owen Scourfield and Lady Scourfield, Col. Trower, Mr and Mrs Owen Williams, Fern Hill, Haverfordwest; Mr Stokes, St. Botolph's Mrs Stokes and Master Stokes, Mr L. Philipps, Lawrenny Mr Carrol, Dr. W. Griffith, Milford Haven Mr Brenchley, Miss Eaton Evans, Mr C. Carrow, Johnston; Mr Jones, Hill; Mr Herbert Fisher, Mrs Summers, Rosemore, and Master Summers, Mr Booker, &c. ==:-=-
I THE MILFORD MURDER CASE. The Treasury havo instructed Mr Denman Benson and Mr Lleufer I homas to prosecute in this case at the Carmarthen Assizes, on the 9th instant. Mr Colin Rees Davies, solicitor, Haverfordwest, has instructed Mr Arthur Lewis, Recorder, of Carmarthen, and Mr J. Lloyd Morgan, M.P,, for the defence. I BEDDOE'S DEFENCE. On Monday Dr. Goodall, medical superintendent of the Joint Counties Lunatic Asylum, Carmarthen, made a mental examination of the prisoner, John Beddoe (24), who in July was committed by the Milford Haven magistrates to take his trial on a charge of murdering William Hammett, a fellow gunner in the Glamorgan Artillery Militia. Seeing that some of the accused's near relatives wore certified lunatics, the question of insanity will be greatly relied upon at the Carmarthen Assizes (to-morrow) Thursday. Failing this, then the counsel for the defence hope to be able to reduce the charge to one of manslaughter, the prisoner having protested to his friends when they visited him in his cell resently that what he did was purely in self-defence.
I The Catholic Church and the Transvaal War. I REQUIEM MASS FOR THE MAD. On Thursday, the day known in the Roman Catholio Church as All Souls Day, there was a solemn requiem mass celebrated at the Church at St. David and St. Patrick, Haverfordwest, for the soldiers who have fallen in the recent engagements in the Transvaal. The church was draped in solemn mourning all the pictures, statues, and altars being covered with black, relien-ed%only by simple white crosses. The Catafalque erected in front of the High Altar was also draped in black, with the Union Jack prominently in front, while on top were placed an officer's busby, crossed swords, belt and gloves, kindly lent for the occasion by Colonel White. It is interesting to remark that the busby which was one of the Irish Fusilier type had itself been through active service in various parts of the world. The Mass, which was most impressive throughout, was celebrated by Rev. Father D. Cummings, assisted by Rev. Ignatius Brown. Father Cummings sang the Mass in the most perfect tone, the Preface and Pater N oster being particularly effective, while Father Ignatius kept up the solemnity in his rendering of the Gospel and Epistle. After the Com- munion Father Cummings delivered a brief, but eloquent address, taking for his text the words, It is a holy and a wholesome thought to pray for the dead that they may be loosed from their sins." He said the occasion was one that appealed to all whether they were Catholics or not. He spoke of our brave soldiers who had given up their lives for their Queen, for justice and for duty, eut off perhaps without a moments preparation, and was it not right that they should pray for them. Some ot those present, he said, might object to prayers for the dead. But he would ask them why, if they did not believe in prayers for the dead, did they attend their funerals in prayer, why they spoke of a dead relative or friend and said, God rest his soul." The Diblo told them it was a holy and a wholesome thing to pray for the dead. He referred to the use of images and pictures in the Church, and asked was it not true that they all liked to keep a memento or a photograph of some dead friend, and was it not natural also that they should have images and pictures of the saints who were then friends in Heaven, that these might help them to walk in their footsteps and to imitate their virtues. The ceremony concluded with the solemn blessing of Catafalque by Father Cummings and Father Ignatius. In the evening there was another service which included the Lamentations of Jeremiah exquisitely rendered by Father Cummings. The responses were sung by the choir, which was kindly assisted by Mr W. D. Phillips and Mr T. C. White. Father Ignatius Browne then preached on the text, Enter not into judgment with thy servant" (Book of Psalms). The nev. preacher dwelt chiefly on the doctrine of purgatory and prayer for the dead.
Haverfordwest County Court. I CLAIM FOR HARBOUR DUES AT FISHGUARD. I IMPORTANT TEST CASE. This case was a claim by the Fishguard Harbour Im- provement Company against John Lewis, the owner of fishing and pleasure boats for 17s 6d., to which the plaintiffs claimed to be entitled for rates under their bye- laws in respect of fishing and pleasure boats. The case had been adjourned from the last comrt. Mr W. J. Vaughan again appeared for the plaintiffs, and Mr Colin Rees Davies again appeared for the defen- dant. It transpired during the hearing that the case affected some 50 fishermen and owners of pleasure boats at Fishguard. Mr Vaughan maintained that the plaintiffs under the Fishguard Harbour Act, 1859, and the Harbours Docks and Piers Clauses Act, 1817, which was incorporated with the former Act had power to make bye-laws in respect of fishing and pleasure boats, and he stated that such bye-laws had been made, confirmed by the court of Quarter Sessions, and published according to Law. Mr Colin Rees Davies maintained that the Fishguard Harbour Act gave the plaintiffs no power to make rates in respect of fishing and pleasure boats, and that the Harbours Docks and Piers Clases Act, 1847, although it gave power to make certain bye-laws contained a proviso that such bye-laws snould not be repugnant to the provisions of any special Act relating to the harbour, which in this case was the Fishguard Harbour Act, 1859, and that consequently the plaintiffs had no power to make such bye-laws which were ultra vires and not binding. A lengtny legal discussion ensued, after which His Honour up-held Mr Davies' contention, and non-suited the plaintiffs. LOCAL LAW CASE. THE CITY OF PARIS INSURANCE. The IuternatioJlal Navigation Co., of New Jersey, v. The Commercial Union Assurancs Co.-Oll Monday the appeal of the defendant in this matter from a decision of Mr Justice Bigham, who directed the trial of the action to take place at the next Liverpool Assizes was heard.
