Pembrokeshire Territorials. MEETING OF THE COUNTY ASSOCIATION. NORTH PEMBROKESHIRE LOCAL MILITIA. COLOURS FOUND. ■ HAVERFORDWEST RIFLE RANGI AGAIN. A meeting of the Pembrokeshire County Territorial Association was held at Haverfordwest yesterday, Colonel Lloyd presiding. The other members present were :-Col. Goodeve, Colonel Owen H. S. Williams, Major W. J. Jones, Major T. W. Price, Major Trewceks, Captain Loftus Adams, Captain Forbes, Captain Pepper, Mr S. M. Price, and Mr J. C. Yorke. ELECTION OF CHAIRMAN. The first business was the election of chairman, and Colonel Owen Williams said they could not do better than re-elect Col. Lloyd, who had taken a great interest in the Association since the start. Col. Goodeve seconded, and the resolution was carried unanimously. Colonel Lloyd said he appreciated the honour con- ferred on him. He had been criticised and the re- mark was made that he gave the Association too much information, and that he and the secretary tMr Pugh) should do more on their own account. But another gentleman had said, For goodness sake don't make it a one man affair as so many things tend to become in Pembrokeshire." Col Lloyd added that he had tried to avoid both ex- tremes. Colonel Roberts was re-appointed vice-chairman on the motion of Major Treweeks, seconded by Major Price. Letters regretting absence were received from Lord St. David's, who said he was in bed suffering from rheumatism, Major E. D. Jones, Fishguard; Col. Ivor Philipps, M.P. (who was in Switzerland), and Mr G. B. Bowen, who had met with an accident. COLOURS OF NORTH PEMBROKESHIRE LOCAL MILITIA. The Chairman read a letter from Lord St. Davids referring to the colours of the North Pembrokeshire Local Militia which had been found in the Tower of London, and the Curator had promised to band it over to the county providing they would repair it and keep it safe. Lord St. Davids said the county would no doubt be glacl to have it. and he himself would bear the expense of having it done up, and the only question was whether it should be stored in North Pembrokeshire. If so the Chairman suggested the Drill Hall, Fishguard, as a suitable place. It was stated that the colours bear the words (translated) Death before dishonour," which is also the motto of the Welsh Regiment. ( Tha following letter was received from Major E. D. Jones "The recovery of the colours of the North Pem- brokeshire Local Militia is interesting. The Com- pany was generally known as the Fishguard Fensi- bles and bad headquarters at Fjshguard. It was formed about 1785, ac the same time as the Fishguard Fort was built, and both were the practical outcome of a piratical raid about that time on Fishguard Bay, when a ship called The Black Prince, which was one of Paul Jones's skirmishing fleet, entered the. har- bour, fired on the town, and looted both the town and the shipping in the lower town harbour. The Fort was then built through the exertions of the then Lord Lieutenant, Sir John Owen, on the land given by Gwynne Vaugha.n of Jordanston, who was appointed Commandant of the Fort. A volunteer force-the one in question-was also enrolled, and was placed under the command of Capt. Knox of Llanstinan. It existed until about 1810, when it was disbanded. Its existence is a memory to be pre- served. I have a picture of one of tile Fencibles' arrayed in most fearsome uniform. It was recruited from a district running from Newport to Maencloc- bog, Letterston, and back to Newport through Fish- guard, with Fishguard as its headquarters, and the members were mostly the county farmers. 1 agree that the Drill Hall (if this will be accepted as a suitable place by the First Commissioner) is the most suitable place to deposit the colours and that the Lord Lieutenant should be asked to come to dedicate them with a suitable ceremony which may also be so arranged as to give a leg up to the Terri- torials here. Should the Drill Hall not be approved then the proper place to deposit the colours is in Fisbguard Church." » Mr Yorke remarked that the colours were at one; time in the church and were neglected. Capt. Loftus Adams That is the case with all the colours I have ever known. Major Treweeks said that perhaps if a little cere- mony were held when the colours were handed over to the Drill Hall it would give a little zest to recruit- ing in that district. It was decided to ask for the colours to be handed over to the county, and that they be stored at the Fishguard Drill Hall. THE SHOALS HOOK RIFLE RANGE. I The question of the Shoals Hook rifle range was again considered. The Chairman said that the owner (Miss Green) now objects to the range altogether and wants it removed. She said that she never understood that the farm would be affected, and she did not want compensation but for the range to be cleared away. He had written to the War Office stating that although the farmers signed papers that they bad no objection to the range, they afterwards said they didn't understand the range would be so long, and he had asked the War Office whether if they could not agree as to compensation they would sanction the Association compalsorily acquiring the land. A reply was received from the War Office asking whether the X20 rent was paid for firing rights. They hoped the farmers would agree to the range being used, and the Association couid agree to the range only being used on certain days and not at all during haymaking and harvesting operations. They also enquired the probable cost of purchasing the land in the event of its being necessary. The Chairman said that if the Association acquired the land they would be able to let it, although of course they would have to make a sacrifice. Mr Pugh reported that he had written to Mr Fred Green on the subject and communicated to him a paragraph of the War Office's letter, and Mr Green suggested that a shorter cartridge should be used which would not cover such a long area. Miss Green however bad repudiated Mr Green's letter, and Mr Pugh remarked that it would not do to use ammunition that was not service ammunition. The Chairman said he had seen Mr Rule Owen about valuing the farm because it would be well for people to understand that the Association bad power to acquire it under an Act of Parliament. They had spent a great deal of money on this rifle range and could not give it up now. "I am sorry" said the Chairman, that people misunderstand what they sign. Mr Pugh said there were really three farms in the vicinity—Fenton, Good nook and Merryborough. The Chairman agreed that the tenants were entitled to some compensation. Mr Yorke remarked that two men were ferreting on one of the farms the other day when a bullet dropped between them, and they concluded that it was time to leave. (Laughter). The matter was deferred. SHOULD ABSENTEES BE PROSECUTED? I The Association next considered the question of prosecuting mon who absented themselves without leave from the annual training. At the last meeting a resolution was passed to invite the opinion of Col. Beddoe before prosecuting two men at Pembroke. Col. Beddoe now replied that he was of the opinion that the drastic method of prosecution should only be adopted on rare occasions and that the men be asked to refund the grant lost the county through their default. Mr Pugh said he bad written letters to absentees and three of them had been returned to him un- delivered. Major Jones said at the last meeting members vigorously opposed resorting to a prosecution, but before coming to any definite decision it was decided to ascertain the opinion of the commanding officer. It was stated that each absentee meant a loss in grant of 24s to the Association. The Chairman remarked that the Colonel com- manding the Regiment recommended that certain absentees be prosecuted, but certain junior officers had proposed that they be not prosecuted. Major Treweeks: Colonel Beddoe repudiates that he recommended these men to be prosecuted. Major Jones said he was convinced at the time that Colonel Beddoe was not wishful to prosecute. He had since seen Col. Beddoe, who approved of the action he took at the last meeting. It was stated that the men had disappeared, and Major Treweeks remarked that there would have to be more stringent discipline next year. Captain Loftus Adams We tell them that unless they attend camp they will be prosecuted, and when we don't prosecute they only laugh about us. The matter dropped. THE GELLYSWICK RANGE. I A letter was received from the Officer commanding I H.M.S. Ocean, stating that the Association's charge of Is. 3d. per hundred for the use of the Gellyswíek Range was very high, and pointing out that the Ocoan's men kept the targets in repair. Major Price thought that under the circumstances no charge should be made and this was agreed to. R.G.A. HEADQUARTERS. The headquarters of the R.G.A. being transferred from Pembroke Dock to Milford, the question was now raised whether another Instructor should be appointed. Colonel Roberts said they did not want another Instructor, but Sergt.-Major Hobbs would require the services of an Orderly Room Clerk, the same as at Pembroke at 7s. 6d. a week. This was agreed to, and it was also resolved that Sergt.-Major Hobbs should be paid 7s. 6d. a week extra since November 3rd, during which period he bad been doing the work of an orderly room clerk. HEATING OF HAVERFORDWEST DRILL HALL. The question of heating the Haverfordwest. Drill QaH ivW next considered. Tbe architect's estimate P-r heating by hot "water pipes was £ 119, but it was stated that the Milford Drill Ilall was satisfactorily heated for X:;O. Major Jones thought that stoves, as at Milford, were most undesirable for a Drill Hall like that, and he suggested a hot water apparatus with radiators extending round the hall. It was worth doing the thing well. Chairman: Especially when you have not to pay for it yourself. On the motion of Mr J. C. Yorke, seconded by Major W. J. Jones, it was decided that a heating apparatus should be installed, and that the Architect be asked to advise as to gas or hot water radiators.
KIKUYU. REV. E. NICHOLSON JONES'S VIEWS. A special service was held at the Tabernacle Chapel ou Sunday evening, when the Rev. E. Nicholson Jones preached on the Kikuyu church controversy. There was a fairly large congregation, and an anthem Worthy is the Lamb," was reudered by the ch.oir, under the conductorship of Mr Eddie Jones, w%o also gave a very effective rendering of the solo "For those in peril." Miss Amy Jones and Mr Willie White presided Bit the organ. Mr Jones devoted the whole of his sermon to the controversy now raging in the Church of England in consequence of the protest raised by the Bishop of Zanzibar against the action of the Bishops of Uganda and Mombasa in 'holding a united com- munion service at Kikuyu, and in deciding to agree to work with the non-episcopal churches on a common basis in the missionary field. The preacher mentioned that Kikuyu was situated in British East Africa, and was a very beautiful spot. This con- ference at Kikuvu was not the first of the kind. Similar conferences held with a view to advancing missionary work had been held in Calcutta in 11)12, i when it was decided amongst other things that spiritual hospitality be offered to persons of what- ever denomination who may find themselves in an area in which the ministrations of their commuuion are not available, and in Shanghai in March, 1913, when it was resolved to call their church the "Christian Church in China." The missionaries agreed to act on the common essentials of their faith i; order to present a united front to the enemy. Following the conference and communion service at Kikuyu the Bishop of Zanzibar felt that a united communion service was not according to the disci- pline, the Order, or the doctrines of Che Church of England, and this was the cause of the controversy which was now raging in the English Church. A Church newspaper had said that a solution of the difficulties will not be found in hasty action or pre- mature efforts at a union for which we are not ready." It was quite possible to create a condition of disunion through too hastily forcing conditions of union. The same Church paper had also said that it was the Church of Christ, the true Catholic Church, that they must take into consideration on this question, not the Church of England. Mr Jones then quoted from the "British Weekly" showing what was the main controversy raised by the question of Kikuyu, and he also referred to the conference of evangelical members of the Church of England last week (and he maintained that the Evangelicals were the predominant element in the Church of England), at which a resolution was supported by the Bishop of Carlisle denouncing the seminary system which emphasises the Church as an exclusive institution, repudiating the apostolic succession as an indispensable necessity for sacra- mental grace, and the necessity for auricular con- fession. The preacher remarked that this resolution, which was unanimously adopted, was broad, it was Protestant, it was evangelical, and the future of a Church with such a Bishop as that was assured.. Then at the Church House, Westminster, a resolu- tion was carried on the motion of Sir Edward Clarke, seconded bv the Dean of Canterbury, cordially approving of the action taken bv the Bishops of Mombasa and Uganda in promoting union in the Mission field and rejoicing that fellow-chnstians should have been invited to join in that holy rite. Unfortunately, proceeded Mr Jones, under the same roof as the evangelicals were another section who believed in episcopacy in true succession from the Apostles and who did not believe in the validity of any ministry unless that minister received it from a bishop who in turn received it in true succes- sion from the Apostles. Their minister of that church, for example, was no minister, notwithstand- ing the fact that he was called by a unanimous vote of the church. It was an enigma how these two sections of the church to which he had alluded could dwell together under one roof. Men should face the question frankly and sooner or later there was bound to come a severance. That section of the church would have to be honest, as John Wesley was, and come out of the Anglican Church. Wesleyan Methodism was to-day Wesley's living monument. They, as Nonconformists, were all the .children of Churchpeople, conscientious church- people who left the Church of England because of their conscience rather than create division and dissension. Mr Jones alluded to those Priests of the Church of England who believed in the confessional. These men were a source of danger. They went prowling about their parishes, and he uttered a warning to all parents to see that none of this insidious poison was iusertell in the receptive and innocent little intellects of their children. That was a solemn obligation resting on them. He felt deeply grateful to men like Sir Edward Clarke and the Bishop of Carlisle for giving expression to those truths of the Gospel, and who were opposed to any- thing which constituted a barrier to the Unity of Christian people.
A Widow's Collapse. I DIES WITHIN A WEEK OF HER HUSBAND. Last Tuesday week there passed away after a long illness Mr Isaac James, of the Mill Inn, Haverford- west, and eight days later his wife collapses and dies with tragic suddenness. The sad circumstances of Mrs James's death were investigated by Mr Corouer Price and a jury of which Mr Edwin John was foreman, at the Masonic Hall on Friday afternoon. The Coroner explained that it was necessary to conduct a post mortem examination, and the medical evidence would clear up the matter absolutely. The first witness was Edgar Jones, florist, New- port, who said be came down to Haverfordwest on Saturday to attend Mr Isaac James's funeral on the following day. On Monday and Tuesday Mrs James complained of a cold, and on Wednesday afternoon a doctor was called in. That evening she seemed worse, and the doctor was again summoned. Dr Lloyd said he was called to see Mrs James about 2.30 on Wednesday afternoon, and he again saw her at 11 o'clock that night, when she was m a state of collapse and died shortly afterwards. When be called in the afternoon he did not sus- pect anything serious. He and Dr Williams subse- quently conducted a post mortem examination and found that there was a burst ulcer in the small intestine and death was due to shock. This ulcer might be the cause of the pains in the stomach. Witness added that the deceased had taken (not by his advice) an opening medicine which under the circumstances was probably a mistake. The jury returned a verdict of "Death from natural causes." nn_ THE FUNERAL. The funeral took place at Uzmaston on Sunday of Mrs James, widow of Mr Isaac James, who was interred in the same churchyard a week earlier. The officiating clergymen were the Revs. John Phillips and Gwilym Smith, and the mourners were Evelyn Douglas James (the only daughter), Mr Robert Douglas (brother), Mr John E. James (brother-in- law), Mr and Mrs W. James (brother and sister-in- law), Meta James (niece), Lizzie Evans, Messrs Job, David, Robert, Fred Evans (cousins), and Mr Edgar Jones, Newport (cousin). There was a large atten- dance of friends and sympathisers, and a large number of beautiful floral tributes were received, including the following" Fondest love," from Evelyn and Peggy; Fondest love," from Mother; In Joving and affectionate remembrance of dear Agnes," from Robert Douglas, Jack, Willie and Edgar; "In loving memory of dear Aunty," from Meta "Fondest love," from Job and Lottie With sincere sympathy," from W. Hancock; In affec- tionate remembrance," from T. E. Moore In loving sympathy," from Mr and Mrs D. H. Burry; "In loving remembrance," from R. and C. Burry; With deepest sympathy," from Mrs F. John, Plough and Harrow. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr Charles Codd.
General Picton Memorial. MILFORD ONLY TOWN TO RESPOND. WILL SHAME RICHER PEOPLE. At a meeting of the Milford Haven Council on Friday evening, Dr. Davies moved that St. Anne's Road terminate at the junction of Hill Street with Upper Hill Street, that the name Spike's Lane remain, and that the road to Fort Hubberston from the junction of Waterloo Road with Wellington Road be named Picton Road." Col. Roberts seconded, and said he was very glad to have the opportunity to. support any scheme for perpetuating the memory of a great Pembrokeshire soldier. As they were all aware, last June an appeal was made in the county for funds to erect a monument to Sir Thomas Picton, but to that appeal only one town responded, and that was Milford Haven. He might also add that the people who subscribed in Milford were those least able to do so. They were very fond of waving the Union Jack on public platforms but when it touched their pockets all their idea of Empire, to quote Sheridan, "Oozes out of the palms of our hands, Sneaks off." When the lists were published showing the subscriptions of the poorer members of the community, it would put richer gentlemen to shame. The chairman (Mr George Cole) said that Col. Roberts's remarks should be qualified, because there were two districts in particular where the collectors did not call on the residents. So that so far as omissions in those districts were concerned the collectors only were to blame. The resolution was carried.
LOCAL WILLS. I I MR. C. W. LAWRENCE, PEMBROKE DOCK. I Mr Charles Wesley Lawrence, of Bush-street, Pembroke Dook, who died on peqember 22, left estate of the gross value of £1,03, of which the net personalty has been sworn at £ 810. Probate of his will has been granted to his widow, Mrs Louisa Maria. Lawrence, of Bush-street, Pembroke Dock, the sole executrix.

Pembrokeshire Naturalists. SOCIETY WOUND UP. A meeting of the Pembrokeshire Natural History Society was held at tbe Drill Hall, Haverfordwest, yesterday afternoon, when there were present: Col. Lloyd (presiding), Dr. Henry Owen, Mr A. J. Wright, Mr Charles Bulmer, and Mr T. Morgan. The hon. sec., Rev. S. R. Jackett, St. Ishmael's, was unable to be present. Col. Lloyd, reviewing the history of the Society, mentioned that Dr. Mills was their first bon. sec., but ho had too much work to do to carry on the 3tities. Although the subscriptions had come in fairly well there was a lack of public interest in the Society and if they were to wind up the question to be considered was what to do with the balance of JE34 Is 9J in the bank. If they didn't ask for this money it would remain in the bank for ever and ever. It was decided to wind up the Society, and the Chairman proposed that they hand over the balance to the Pembrokeshire Society for the Preservation of Ancient Monuments. This was seconded, and agreed to. In the course of an informal discussion, the Chair- man remarked that people would go picnicking without having any knowledge of flora or natural historv. Thev had" no desire to know anything of these matters and, therefore, it was useless to con- tinue the Society. Mr Bulmer suggested that they should ask the Society for the Preservation of Ancient Monuments to widen the scope of their activities so as to embrace natural history and to include in their membership those who were interested in this subject. This had been done in the north of England with success. Mr Btilmer's suggestion w?s accepted. Mr Bulmer's suggestion was accepted.
-==-=-=-== SHOULD DYSPEPTICS DIET? A SPECIALIST'S VALUABLE ADVICE. "Dyspepsia indigestion, flatulence and practically I all forms of stomach trouble," writes a leading specialist, "are in nearly every instance the direct result of food fermentation and the consequent production in the stomach of acid and gas which irritate and distend the stomach and make normal digestion impossible. The gas by distending the stomach and pressing upon the surrounding vital organs seriously interferes with their work, and frequently causes palpitation of the heart; but the acid is much more dangerous, because it irritates, then inflames and even ulcerates the irritates, Jining of the stomach, producing dangerous irritates, lining of the stomach, producing dangerotii3 delicate stomach ulcers and even cancer. Food fermenta- tion being primarily responsible for all the trouble, it was long the custom of physicians to permit the use only of such foods as could not ferment, but unfortunately unfermentable foods were soon found to be so lacking in nutrition as to result in partial starvation and rapid loss of strength and vitality. In view of this fact, physicians nowadays seldom, if ever, recommend dieting, but adopt instead the more logical plan of permitting the eating of any food that may be- desired, and then preventing fermentation by neutralising the acidity. This they do by prescribing half a teaspoonful of bisurated magnesia in a little warm water immediately after meals. This simple antacid is obtainable from any chemist, and so remarkable are its peculiar pro- perties that dyspeptics and stomach sufferers can eat practically anything they want so long as a little bisurated magnesia is taken immediately afterwards." Dieting for dyspeptics is seldom necessary, and will soon be a thing of the past. Be sure to get the same as what the doctors prescribe. It is bisurated magnesia, spelled b-i-s-u-r-a-t-e-d. Other forms bearing somewhat similar chemical names are lacking in its peculiarly valuable pro- perties.
DEATH OF MRS. SAIES. I we regret to record the deatn 01 airs Martha Lavinia Saies, widow of Mr Charles Saies, and mother of Mr C. C. Saies, Market Street, which occurred somewhat suddenly on the Old Bridge on Friday last,. Deceased, who had attained the ripe age of 8(5, enjoyed good health up to within a few days of her death, but a sudden attack of pneumonia laid her low and she passed away quite unexpectedly. Mrs Saies was a very old resident of Haverfordwest, and came to the town when a young woman, but until recently she had resided away for some years. The funeral took place yesterday.
DEATH OF MISS BEYNON. The death occurred at Holloway, Haverfordwest, on Sunday, of Miss Beynon, a prominent Wesleyan and a well-known local resident. Deceased came to Haverfordwest from Llanrhian about three weeks ago, and went to reside with Mrs Rees, grocer, Holloway. For some time past Miss Beynon had suffered from indifferent health, but death came unexpectedly from heart failure. Deceased was a half-sister to Mr Joseph Watts, Letterston, and Mr Tom Watts, Haverfordwest, and was held in the highest esteem for her many gracious and Christian qualities. She was 58 years of age. The funeral will take place at St. Martin's Cemetery this after- noon.
Fifteen Years in the Workhouse I DEATH AT HAVERFORDWEST. I The death recently occurred at the Haverfordwest Workhouse of an old man, Wm. Henry Menhinnic, who had been au inmate of the institution for the long period of 15 years. Deceased came into Milford Haven 15 years ago, suffering from paralysis, and was taken to the Haverfordwest Workhouse, where lie remained as a cripple ever since. He gained a settlement elsewhere, and the cost of his mainten- ance was defrayed by another board. On three occasions he was visited by his sister who travelled all the way from Russia for the purpose of seeing him. The last visit was paid as recently as last year. Deceased was interred at Milford Haven last week.
I THE QUAKERS. I I HAVERFORDWEST AND MILFORD I REMINISCENCES. I According to Mr T. C. Rees, the Quaker Meeting House in Haverfordwest was on the site of the present Shire Hall, for which the County pays ground rent to this day to the Friends. Meetings were held in it within the memory of some old in- habitants of the town. The Meeting House in Milford was utilized long after, but interest in the body was kept up by the adhesion of Mr George Phillips, Dew Street. Born af a Wesleyan family, he nevertheless would not adopt the church of his parents. He first of all joined the Moravians, becoming a Sunday School teacher, but his conversion to Quakerism was due to the influence of an intelligent young friend, who had been brought in contact with some Friends. He attended the Meeting House at Milford first when he was 21 years of age. He usually went every Lord's Day thither, but did not apply for membership until 1857, when he was 36 years of age. By that time the little company at Milford was dissolved, and he became the solitary representative of his Church in the County. But his faith and interest were kept alive by a large correspondence with leading Friends, an b'I ha e large correspondence with leading Friends, and he showed his loyalty to the church of his adoption by his holy conversa- tion and by the regular distribution of its literature. His business, his strong character, his fervid elo- quence, his espousal of all good causes, brought him in contact with all classes of society. On the political platform, advocating temperance principles, watching and guiding the education of the young, or interesting himself on behalf of the needy and fallen, the sturdy faith and the righteous zeal of the Quaker were evident, and the greatness of his life was evidenced in the huge throng that followed his remains to the Mount yard, three miles away."
FORTHCOMING PERFORMANCE OF I I. HIAWATHA" BY THE HAVERFORDWEST CHORAL SOCIETY. To the Editor of th. Milford Haven Telegraph. I SIR,—I have received the following letter from our former townsman, Dr. F. R. Greenish, whose opinions regarding the work we are now rehearsing will probably be of interest to your readers, if you will kindly insert it. Yours truly, W. E. DIXON. COPY. 15, Queen's Avenue, Muswell Hill, N. January 16, 19J1. Dear Mr Dixon,—Allow me to express the pleasure it has given me to hear that you Tave selected the late Mr Coleridge Taylor's Hiawatha for your next Choral concert, as it is recognised as one of the most striking works which has been produced in recent years. It contains plenty of difficult passages, as you have doubtless discovered, 'but I am sure your singers will delight in, and will enjoy, giving full expression to the superb effects of light and shade, with which it abounds. I have heard it four times since I came to London (once under the composer's direction) and am hoping to hear it again in May, when it is to be given by one of our choral societies here, whose powers of I expression I have never heard surpassed. Part 1 and 2 are undoubtedly the finest portions of the work. Part 2 The Death of Minnbaba," is simply beautiful. You and your Society are to be congratulated on placing this fine work before a Haverfordwest audience. They have certainly a treat in store for them, and will doubtless show their appreciation of your enterprise by givingyo a "faU" house, when the time comes. Wishing you every success, Yours sincerelv. I F. R. GREENISH. I
I INSURANCE ACT FINES. 1 I A CARDIGAN DEFENDANT. At Cardigan yesterday the Board of Trade pro- ceeded against Daniel Griffiths, contractor, Cardigan, i on 12 summones for alleged breaches of the National Insurance Act.

Defendant was charged for three dates against each man and also the same number of times for failing to pay the contribution. After a lengthy heating the Bench held three cases proved, and fined defendant Is in each case and ordered him to pay three times the amount of the contributions wtb costs.
j A Pembrokeshire Diary. —————— ( The Welsh Bishops and the Welsh Clergy are strangely silent on th3 Kikuyu (pro- nouneed Ke-koo-yoo) controversy. So far no ,clergyman in Haverfordwest, or for that matter in Pembrokeshire, has, so far as I am aware, expressed an opinion en the subject, although tho Church newspapars devote columns of space to it every week. The first local Nonconformist minister to deal with the issues raised by this little storm which originated in darkest Africa, is the Rev. E. Nicholson Jone, who devoted the w hole of hi3 sormon to it at the Tabornacle Chapel on Sunday evening. There are two sections in the Church of England, one of which, the Evangelicals desire closer co-operation with Nonconformist bodies, and the other think that Episcopacy is essential to their Church's continued existence. At Kikuyu. the mission- aries representing various Christian churches, agreed to work together on a common basis, and a united Communion service was held at which the Bishops of Uganda an 1 Mombasa administered to Anglicans, Presbyterians, adruinistered to Au g Baptist* and others, the Holy Corunitin on. This little bit of Christian charity and brotherhood called forth a protest from the Bishop of Zanzibar, who is now hurrying home to lay his grievance in his Church's Provincial Court before the Metropolitan and his comprovincial bishop3, according to Catholic precedent Of course there is no Provincial Court possessing powers to settle such a contro- versy. Resolutions passed by convocation are worthless without the assent of Parlia- ment. The ultimate appeal is to the King in Council the (Sovereign is, since the Reformation, in all causes and over all persons, whether ecclesiastical or civil, within those his dominions supreme." And as for the Metropolitan we need be under no fear that the present Archbishop of Canterbury is going to take sides. He will find much to be said for both sections of the Church, and will exhort them to patch up their differences. He is an adept at steering between the Scylla and Charybdis of Yes and No." We believe that the mass of the laity of the Church desire a closer and a more cordial co-operation between themselves and the Nonconformist bodies. The claims and pretensions of Episcopacy are of quite recent origin. The natural allies of the Church are the Nonconformists, and this was the tendency of the Anglican Church from Hooker to lillotson. It cannot be too often repeated that so long as the Church remains Established every parishioner of good moral character is entitled to participate in its Communion, for confirmation is a inere ecclesiastical arrangement which has no tanction in law. Rev. E. Nicholson Jones thinks that another secession in the Church is inevitable. In that case it is men like the Bishop of Oxford who must go out. The Church of England has suffered many such losses in the past. We all respect the scruples, however unreasonable we may think them, of good and devout men, and I am sure the Church would part with them with regret. But the overwhelming body of Christians desire a sinking of minor differ- ences and an open Communion The old notions of exclusion and privilege appear strange and incomprehensible to a large and growing body in all the churches. j ? ? ? The action of Dr. O'Donnell in resigning the position of Medical Officer of Health to the Fishguard Urban Council as a protest against the action of the Fishguard magis- trates in refusing to close a public well which contains water unfit for human consumption, will occasion no surprise The quality of the water of this well has long been a cause of anxiety among those who are concerned for the maintenance of the public health at the rising seaport in North Pembrokeshire, and although the application for a closing order has been before tho Fishguard bench on three occasions, it has always been rejected on a technical point. Why ? Asa rule magistrates are very sensitive tn public criti- cism, and the serious step taken by Dr. O'Donnell will intensify the very natural indignation which is felt by the Urban Council and the public at Fishguard. The magistrates, as local residents, would, one would have thought, have shown as great an anxiety to safeguard the public health by | insisting on taking all reasonable precautions as a representative public body. I have never before heard of a benc h of magistrates refusing an application of this kind made by the local authority on the application of the responsible official, and by their action the Fishguard magistrates are incurring risks of a very grave character. The Roose magis- trates recently granted a similar application made on behalf of the Neyland Urban Council; indeed, very few owners of property would take the responsibility of resisting it. Better far some temporary inconvenience than that the health of the public should be seriously menaced. ■» The Pembrokeshire Natural History Society, after an existence extending back a decade or so, has been wound up and the balance in hand transferred to the Pembroke- shire Society for the Preservation of Ancient Monuments. A suggestion has been made that the latter Society, a somewhat lifeless body, should extend the scope of its activities so as to include among its members those who are interested in natural history. The suggestion will probably be accepted, as the county is very rich both in flora and in old castles and other interesting relics which' should be preserved alike from the ravages of time and the wanton destruction of the iconoclasts, who are entirely destitute of historical imagination and the desire to per- petuate memories of other times. •» ■& I hear that a new list of magistrates for the county of Pembroke will shortly be issued by the Lord Chancellor, and there is already a good deal of speculation as to the fortunate recipients of this justly-prized honour. There are a good many men in the county who ought to be on the Commission of the Peace, and perhaps a few-just a few —of whom one wonders why they ever got there But whatever might have been done in the past, we may all rest assured that the present Lord Lieutenaiqt (Lord St. Davids) will exercise that wise discretion for which he is noted.

Hook to Freystroy Road. INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENTS LIKELY. We understand that- the parish councils of Llangwm and Freystrop are taking up with enthusi- asm the project of the new road from Hook to Freystrop, and the clerk, Mr Joseph Davies, is issuing circulars appealing for subscriptions. They will thus be in a position to communicate to the District Council the amount of local subscriptions available for the enterprise. The local landlords, who have repeatedly expressed a readiness to help, are also being approached, and a similar appeal will he made to the townspeople of Haverfordwest, who are known to be very sympathetic towards the new road. There are indications of big industrial developments at Hook in the near future, a con- tingency which should not be overlooked by local tradespeople.

HOCKEY CLUB DAKCE. I The annual dance of the Hockey dub was held on Wednesday evening in the Masonic Hall. The floor was in an excellent conditio'.), and the decorations consisted of plants, bunting, etc. About 120 people were present, and a thoroughly enjoyable time was spent, dancing being kept up till 3 a.m. Supper was served at small tables arranged on the platform, on which were also placed tables for those who wished t3 play cards. Mr Stanley Aiford was M.C., and Miss Lewis, of Haverfordwest, aasisted by her father, Mr J. Lewis, snppJien a pleasing variety of j music. The Committee desire to specially thank ? the ladies outside of the club who assisted in tbe preparation and the serving of supper. TABERNACLE GUILD. I At the weekly meeting of the Tabernacle People's I Guild on Wednesday night, Mr Gilbert Skone presided, but it was unfortunate that owing to other engagements in the town the attendance was not so large as usual, certainly not commensurate with the. intellectual treat provided in the paper by Mr F. J. Warren, Haverfordwest, on "The Tribute of Paganism." Speakers to the paper were Miss M. Thomas, Miss Theresa Thomas, and Mr J. H. Day. A cordial vote of thanks was given to Mr Warren for bis kindness in favouring the Guild with such an excellent paper. °- I NURSING ASSOCIATION *ANNUAL MEETING. We are asked to state that the annual general meeting of the Milford Haven District Nursing Association will be held next Tuesday afternoon at 3 I o'clock in the Council Chambers, Charles Street. We need hardly say that the interest of all towns- people is invited and all will be heartily welcomed on this occasion. TO-MORROWd RECOGNITION. I The public recognition of the Rev. Ernest Y. Tidman, A.T.S., as pastor of North Road Baptist Church is to take place to-morrow (Thursday) and we doubt not the sacred building will be filled. In the afternoon at H.M, a service will be conducted by the Rev. B. Grey Griffith, B.D., Cardiff. The rev. gentleman's last visit is fragrant in the memory of I all those who then heard him and many will make an effort to renew acquaintance. At j o'clock a public tea will be held in the Tabernacle Central Hall (kindly lent for the occasion) and at 7.30 the public meeting will be presided over by the Rev. O. D. Campbell, M.A., of Haverfordwest," and will he addressed by the Rev. B. Grey Griffith, B.D., Rev. J. Meredith Jones, of Newport, Mon., officers of Naza- reth Church, Mountain Ash Rev. E. V. Tidman and county and local ministers. A very hearty invi- tation is accorded to all to attend. THE PLEASURES OF LIFE. I A very fine paper entitled The pleasures of Life was given at the Literary meeting of the Wesley Guild on Monday evening by Mr G. E. Jones, head- master of North Road Boys Council School. It dealt with such points as home life, education, studies of nature, music, love, religion, all of which were elucidated in a manner interesting to all present. It was a highly appreciated contribution. There was a good attendance and Mr A. E. Fielder presided. PICTURE PALACE. I Good houses nigbtly is the report from the Robert Street Picture Palace, and this encourages the manager in his efforts to reproduce only the best films. Judging from the advertised programme for this week this reputation is to be sustained and an extra special draw for the first two nights was the two-reel drama "The Fighting Cbapltin," whilst of course the people simply cannot help following 11 Mary' in her weekly representations of subtle and clever acting. The story gets more interesting each instalment. To-uight (Wednesday) tue inimitable humorist, M. Prince, appears in Wifflea as Napoleon" producing a screaming comedy. To- morrow and Friday, an euthralling picture entitled "The Two Spies" will be on the screen, and Saturday the famous "Nick Winter" will unravel one of his intricate secrets. In addition, Miss Daisy Harries will sing a fresh chorus song on two of the nights, and this young artiste is proving a big draw at the Palace with her fine interpretation of the most pleasing and latest songs of the day. "The last day of Pompeii is billed for February 5, Gand 7. < CHARITY FOOTBALL. In the cause of "sweet charity" a novel football match is to be played to-morrow (Thursday) on the Stars ground, Priory Road, arranged by good-hearted fish market men in aid of the family of W. Adams, who met with such a serious accident in the explo- sion on the Abelard." Teams representing married and single have been chosen as follows :—Married :— W. Hunt; J. Oakley, and J. Harries L. Kicbols, J. Pettit (capt), E. Hoggins; W. Caisley, A. Podd, G. Hooper, W. Scott, E. Issars.-Single:-A. Home; E. Thomas (capt.), and 1. Clark; J. Morse, W. Davies, W. Knight; J. Caisley (junior), H. Hooper, W. Allen, R. Green, W. Frowd. The kick-off is at (3 30 and will give an opportunity for everybody to attend. I I I FISH TRADE AND TRAFFIC. The supply on the Fish Market last week ran its usual course and there was no outstanding feature, for the supplies continued short with the mainten- ance of high purchasing rates. Hake was exceed- iugly short again and "far south boats were nearly iall absent. Best hake made 70s early in the week and dropped a bit as the week advanced. Small hake for the frying trade was also dear and haddocks, whiting, and gurnets advanced in price. Prime, 6trauge to say, sold at comparatively easy rates- soles £6 and £5 15s per truck, turbot 14s, brill Os, and I halibut 12s per stone. More of the big hake boats were expected to arrive this present week and one came on Monday and practically supplied the market with hake, landing the bulk of the 290 kits on the market. Eight steamers, three liners, and seven smacks came in altogether and mixed fish was repre- sented by 740 kits. 10) tons were sent off. ?be Tenby" made a fine trip and realised a trifle over £ 600. The total of tonnage despatched from MiFford Docks during week ending Jan. 17th was 315.—On Monday the first mackerel drifter of the season arrived with GOO which sold at 18s 6d per 120. WADBROOK'S CINEMA AND PALACE. This week the boards at Wadbrook's are occupied by one of the finest and most taking turns of the season in The Taffies," a really first-class combin- ation, who have just returned from a successful tour in South Africa. The act is a varied one and not only for Welsh people but adapted to suit and please everybody. Their reputation spread through the town after their first performance, and they are attracting the crowd nightly. Sandwiched between Star Pictures is also the charming juvenile vocalist Vera May. Next week Mr Scard is introducing a novel act in Selkirk's "Bonnie Scotland," to be per- formed by Milford children under the direction of Mr W. Crusoe, Selkirk. People will natuijtlly flock to see their own children perform in this wonderful spectacle which has had a successful run throughout the country. As the building is sure to be taxed, and there are no early doors, patrons will take the pre- caution of coming early. From a perusal of the numerous previous opinions of this performance we can safely promise townspeople a real treat. Other varieties have also been engaged, and a full pro- gramme of Star films will be maintained.
j LABOURERS' UNION ORGANISING. For some time representatives of the National Amalgamated Labourers' Union have been visiting Milford Haven and recently a branch of the union has been formed in the port. With the object of furthering the movement a public meeting was held in the Temperance Hall on Thursday evening and there were nearly 100 men present. The chair was taken by Mr E. Fitzmaurice of Fishguard, who apologised for the absence of the general secretary, Mr Twomey of Swansea. The chairman said that when he first came to Milford he found it was the opinion that the men ought to have been organised years ago as the wages of the men in Milford Haven were much lower than they should be. Food was higher and rent was higher and wages lower than in any other port. 185 men had joined, but there were hundreds outside the pale of organisation. He urged them to get these men in. The Rev Geo. Neighbour of the "Daily Citizen," delivered a trenchant address in which he said it was a reflection on the sanity and manhood of working men that there should be any necessity to urge them to organise for their own protection. He appealed to them to realise themselves and to utilise their own power. Councillor Tom Wilson of Swansea also spoke on the question of organisation and gave instances of what had been done in other Bristol Channel ports for the workers by the Union. The Pembrokeshire ports of Milford, Neyland, and Fishguard were a menace to the other ports because they were con- stantly being referred to as working at a low wage. It was, therefore, their duty to organise until they were on the same level as the other ports, and he should do his best to secure that end. The Rev. G. Neighbour promised to address another meeting in a few weeks' time. SALVAGE CLAIM FAILS. MILFORD BOAT CREW AWARDED SUM FOR TOWAGE. At a special sitting of the Pembroke Dock County Court, before his Honour Judge Lloyd Morgan, K.C., and two nautical assessors, an action was heard in which the owner, master, and crew of the steam liner Chancticleer, of Milford, sued the owners of the ketch Anne, of Gloucester, for X300 for salvage service rendered off Milford Haven on October 3rd and 4tb. Mr Marlay Samson, instructed by Messrs Eaton-Evans and Williams, of Haverford: west, appeared for plaintiffs, and Mr H. R. Robertson, instructed by Messrs Lowless and Lowless, of Pembroke, for defendants. His Honour found that there was no element of danger in the case, and, consequently, the claim for salvage had to go. He, however, awarded plaintiffs a sum of JE.)0 for the towage service rendered. Plaintiffs were given general costs of the action and the defendants those occasioned by the claim for salvage, Death of Sir John Duncan.—By the death of Sir John Duncan, part proprietor of the "South Wales Daily News" a.t Cardiff on Saturday, Wales loses one of her best and most prominent citizens.
r NEYLAND NEWS. ROSEMARKET CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. On Sunday evening last a musical service was held at the above place of worship, when a sacred cantata entitled "A Guiding Star" composed by James Tipton was rendered. A large congregation had assembled, the sacred building being filled in every part to its utmost capacity. Mr Walter Evans of Neyland read the narrative and conducted the choir while Mr James Hier accompanied in his usual able manner. The rendering was effective and devotional and was listened to with reverent attention by all present. Valuable help was given by some of the young people from the Little Honey- borcugh Baptist Chapel and it is pleasing to note the cordial relationship existing between the neighbour- ing churches. We understand that the cantata will be rendered at Sardis Chapel on Sunday next. OBITUARY. Death has again removed this week an old and highly esteemed inhabitant in the person of Mr Philip Phillips of Cambrian Road who passed away on Sunday morning at the age of 74 years. He was formerly in the employ of the G.W.ll. Company as formerly in the empioy of the G.

LLANGWM. I THE VILLAGE INSTITUTE.—The annual meeting of the village institute was held last week, Mr James, Llangwm Farm, presiding. Others present ineluded Mr G. P. George, Nash, Mr T.

Billiards were going strong and they now contemplated a billiard handi- cap. He added that a library bad been formed and already they bad well over 100 volumes given them. The Treasurer's balance sheet showed a balance in band of over £ 12. The officials were all re-elected. DEACON SUPPORTS YEOMANRY i Lieutenant G. S. Barnes, of the Liaiigadoel, Troop of the Pembrokeshire Yeomanry last evening enter- tained the troop and a number of friends to dinner at Llangadock, He was supported by Major Delme Davies Evans, Captain Partridge, Abergavenny; Lieutenants J. W. Bishop, Llanellv .J. E. Campbeli Daveys, Llandovery; and Sts.ff-Major Bvfield, Car- marthen, instructor of the squadron. Mr Walter James, a Methodist deacon, said that his only regret that evening was that he was too old to join the Yeomanry. An erronous impression, far too prevalent, was that joining the auxiliary forces led to no good, and that young fellows whilst they were in camp idled away their time. That was quite wrong. They were taught habits of discipline, smartness, and cleanliness, and above all to be prepared to meet any emergency that this ocmntry might encounter.

A Criminal" at Seven.—Said to have sold his father's air gun for 6d and his uncle's bicycle for 3d; and to have burned the baby with a red-hot poker, a boy of seven was brought before the Acton magisterial bench. It was stated that the boy was mentally deficient, and that the education committee had his caac under consideration. He looks a desperate criminal, the magistrate ironically observed. When he asked the boy if he was going to be good now, the young defendant smiled, and replied, Yes, bir." He was then allowed to go home with his mother.
