NOTES OF THE WEEK. At their next meeting the Pembrokeshire County Council will be asked to receive a deputation repre- senting the Welsh Memorial Association and they will also consider a separate county scheme which is put forward as an alternative to co-operating with the Association, now representative of every county in Wales except Pembrokeshire. Somehow we do not think the County Council will take the responsi- bility of deciding on separate action, because to do so would be to act in direct opposition to the wishes of the overwhelming body of ratepayers. No doubt there is much to be said in favour of a eounty scheme, in so far as it would allow co-operation be- tween the county health department and the tuber- culosis officer, but after all this is a small adminis- trative matter which ought to be capable of adjust- ment. Besides, there is a good deal of duplication of officials at the present time. We have urban, rural, and county health officials, and in order to avoid overlapping we should have to go in for a brand new system. And it should not be forgotten that Dr. Jordan and a nurse are stationed at Haver- fordwest as the direct result of a resolution passed by the County Health Committee, which laid it down as a condition of joining the scheme that a tuberculosis officer should be resident in the county. Having passed a resolution, which altbough vague, led the Welsh Memorial to think that Pem- brokeshire would join with the Association, the committee have ever since been trying to find excuses for not joining. The only thing that has happened since is the passing of the Insurance Act, and the Public Health Committee have their eye on the 9d. per annum which is contributed by -insured persons, and which is estimated to produce a sum of t720. But the Insurance Committee and the representatives of insured persons will have something to say as to the disposal of that fund, and we do not think for a moment that the Committee will be attracted by the Pembrokeshire scheme, or indeed that it will receive the approval of /the Commissioners. The provision proposed to be made strikes us as totally inadequate, nor do we think that Pembrokeshire, acting alone, can as efficiently and economically deal with the serious work of attacking a disease like consumption, as all the other Welsh counties combined. Common-sense would seem to urge that Pembrokeshire can do better by joining with wealthy counties like Glamorgan than going in for some small scheme. Even the very unsatisfactory scheme which Mr T. H. Edwards, of Pembroke Dock, criticises, calculates that a id. rate will be required to be borne by the county, and this is based on an extremely doubtful assumption that the Guardians will contribute a sum ot 1280 a year, and that the County Insurance Committee will co-operate. Besides, separatist action now means losing all the advantages of the thousands of pounds voluntarily subscribed to the Welsh Memorial-Pembrokesbire contributed some £ 1,200—and all claim to participate in the benefits of the Alltymynydd sanatorium, which has been handed over by the Executive to the Welsh Memorial Association. Having put in our plea for united action because we prefer a big scheme to a small and expensive one, we doubt whether, while the present housing conditions exist, it serves any real and lasting purpose to spend public money on sanatoria and all the expensive apparatus connected there- with. Many people would prefer to see a national medical service, with tuberculosis officers in every county, and if instead of the money now spent on curative treatment which in the majority of cases probably proves futile, efforts were concentrated on providing better house3 for the people and in teaching them how to live under decent healthful conditions it would yield much better results. Besides it would be much more agreeable for doctors to be paid for endeavouring to prevent disease than in paying daily and often nightly visits in attempting to cure it I We are glad to see that Mr W. G. Eaton-Evans introduces the housing question in the correspondence which has passed between him and Mr Gwilym Hughes, the secretary to the Association-and we are all the more glad because newspaper reports show that during he past year Mr Evans has, as agent to certain property, had a number of orders served on him by the District Council t, put bouses in sanitary and habitable repair. We agree with Mr W. G. Eaton-Evans that it is of very little use to send patients to a sanatorium if on their return they are to be allowed to live under conditions which are a direct menace to their health but at present we have to decide between two rival schemes which go along parallel lines, and on their merits there can be little room for hesitation or doubt. It is impossible to go to a church or chapel or public meeting in Haverfordwest, or any other place in the Kingdom for that matter, without being con- fronted with instances of murderous millinery. But it is gratifying to know that the ground has been very carefully and very deliberately prepared for legislation prohibiting the trade in the plumage of wild birds. The House of Lords are unanimous in prohibiting importation, while in the Commons when a division was once taken, it showed a minority of only 48 against a majority of 326 pepared for prohibition. If wild birds had votes the matter would have been dealt with long ago. The traffic in the plumage of wild birds involves cruelty that is wanton and brutal. The facts connected with the "osprey plume have been stated over and over again, yet women continue to wear it. They also wear the coveted plumes of the white heron, which are produced only in the breeding season, and the shooting of the parent bird means the death of its young by starvation. That any woman can endure the idea that she carries about on her head the trophy of such a murder belongs to the deeper mysteries of dulness and vanity. The whole- sale massacre of the albatross in Pacific islands is an abomination no less distressing. It is not to simple killing that one so much objects. The wings are often cut from the living bird, which is then left to bleed to death, and sometimes the birds are first slowly starved, so that their skin shall be free from fat and greese. Against this naturalists have been making their protests for half a century, and all indications would point to the fact that this year will see statutory measures taken against the countenance of such a vile and wicked trade.
LOCAL NEWS. I Carmarthenshire Hunt.—Sir Owen Philipps was on Saturday appointed master by the Carmar- thenshire Hunt, with Mr W. S. G. Morris (Ystrad- wrallt) as his deputy. Boxing Competition Postponed.— We are asked to state that the Boxing Competition advertised to take place on Saturday, the 31st inst., has been postponed. G. W .R.

Co., are ru.Qg exctrrsions to Llanelly and Swansea on January 31st, to Gowerton Fair February, to London on February 6th, and to Llanelly, Swansea, and Cardiff on February 7th. Baptist Foreign Missions.—Services were held in Bethesda and Hill Park on Sunday last, when the deputation was the Rev. R. Jennings of the Congo. On the following evening Mr Jennings gave a lantern lecture, and had many interesting things to tell of mission work in the Congo. The high sheriff, Mr Francis D. Phillips, presided. Proceeds of Christmas Oarol Singers. We are informed by Mr S. Smith, Portfield, the organising secretary, that the proceeds of Mr Dixon's party of carol singers 011 Christmas Eve in aid of the National Children's Homo amounted to £ 9 13s Id.

At the recent examination for Licentiate of the above College, Miss Lena Harries, of Pembroke Dock, gained the highest marks in the Kingdom, 96 out of a possible 100, and will accordingly receive the silver medal of the College. Miss Harries has received the whole of her violin tuition from Mr T. G. Hancock of Pem- broke Dock. Visit of the Rev. Daniel IJughes, Ponty- pool.-A large number of people are expected to hear the "hero of the sledge-hammer" incident at Hill Park on Sunday and Monday next. Mr Hughes is a preacher of remarkable power and has great oratorical ability. The lecture on the ten days which be spent in Walton Gaol as a passive resister has been tremendously successful in many parts of the country, audiences being kept hilariously amused for two hours. Not only is the lecture amusing but also very instructive. It will com- mence at 8 o'clock. Tickets, 6d each. Noted Winter Sale.-Messrs Harries & Morris's winter sale, in which exceptional bargains may be secured, commences on Saturday next, and will be continued for 15 days. Customers do not need to be informed that this is a genuine sale of the remains of winter goods, and thtt the reductions are noc fictitious. The opportunity offered by this sale to secure fashionable goods of sxcellent quality at prices so low as to be within almost everyone's income, is almost unique. A perusil of this enter- prising firm's sale catalogue will gire an idea of the bargains offered. A discount of 3s will be allowed on every XI, or IN on every shilling sptnt. Tabernacle Guild.—The week!y meeting of the Guild was held on Monday hlst, Rev. E. N. Jones presiding, when a debate on "Whether bazaars are justifiable means of raising church funds" took place. Able papers for and against were read by Mr D. LI. Davies tnd Miss Beta Thomas respectively. A lively disctssion followed, which was taken part in by Messrs W. Noot R. Walters, T. Bleddyn, W. White, Go Phillips and J. Morgan. The result was 18 for and 14 against. A hearty vote of thanks to the speakers terminated a very interesting evening. The secretary announced for next Monday's meeting a paper by Mr H. E. H. James, B.A. United Charities. — A meeting of the Trustees of the United Charities was held on Monday, Mr Edward Eaton-Evans presiding. The statement of accounts showed receipts amounting to X78 15s lid, and total payments of 149 16s 4d (of which ?41 was paid to alms'women), leaving a balance in hand of X28 18s 9!a.The Clerk reported that there were complaints against two inmates of the almshouses for carrying on a laundry. The inmates were Miss Harries and Miss Rogers, and they took in a good deal of washing and made them- selves a general nuisance to the other inmates. A resolution was passed that in the opinion of the Trustees the inmates should not take in washing as the accommodation was not sufficient Two appli- cants were received for the vacant room at the almshouse, Mrs Martha Davies (aged 65), a widow, of 30, Church Street, and Miss Jones, Milford Road, a young woman 29 years of age who said she was entirely dependent on her family. The appoint- ment was given to Mrs Davies. Death of the liov. W. A. Petors.—The news has been received in Haverfordwest with very great regret of the death on Sunday morning of the Rev. W. A. Peters, M.A., vicar of St. Paul's, Grange- town, Cardiff. The deceased, who was a native of Haverfordwest, had been ailing for sometime, and on Sunday week he collapsed in the vestrv of St. Barnabas Church prior to the service. But he con- tinued to attend to his parochial duties until the following Tuesday when pneumonia set in, and he succumbed at his residence in Clive Street, Cardiff, early on Sunday morning. The rev. gentleman was born in Haverfordwest, and served as a puoil teacher with Mr Morgan, of the Barn Street National School. Afterwards he held the position of schoolmaster of Burton, and was well-known and highly respected throughout the district for his many estimable qualities. In 1898 he was ordained, and entering the Church .the following year his first curacy was at St. Fagau's, Aberdare, where he remained nearly two years. In 1900 he became curate of St. Paul's Newport, and his next curacy was at St. Cstherinels, Cardiff, after which he accepted the living at Dinges- tow, near Usk. About two years ago he returned to Cardiff as vicar of Grangetown and had ever since organised the Church work in that parish with con- spicuous success. He excelled as a pastor, the sick and poor of the ward receiving his closest attention at all times. No one but himself and the recipients knew the extent of his financial assistance in needy cases, and these also were his especial care in his capacity as a member of the board of guardians for Grangetown. Every movement in the ward that was non-political and nou-party in character, and likely to prove beneficial to the parishioners, found in him a hearty supporter. On Sunday evening references were made in the various churches of the city of Cardiff, and sympathy with his sister (liss Peters) vas generally expressed. I The Pembrokeshire Hounds will meet on Monday, February 2nd, at St. Botolphs; Thursday, February 5th. at Valley Farm, Wiston. Each day at 10.45 o'clock. Sir Owen and Lady Philipps, of Coomb, near Carmarthen, will sail on Feb. 27 for the Argentine Republic, where Sir Owen has extensive interests. They will remain abroad for a few months. Accident to Dr. Mills.-While attending a patient recently Dr. Mills, Haverfordwest, slipped on the stairs and strained a tendon of his leg, which produced great lameness, but we are pleased to hear that the Doctor is progressing satisfactorily. Albany Young People's Guild.—At the weekly meeting of the Albany Young People's Guild last night, Miss Edwards, headmistress of the Prendergast Girls' School, read an interesting paper on The hymns that have helped." Miss Edwards compared the older hymns with the more modern, and suggested that the old hymns were sung with more fervour and thought. She mentioned Mr Stead's favourite hymn Be gone unbelief," and Mr Gladstone's favourite hymns "Lead kindly light" and "Rock of ages." An iateresting discussion followed. Cymric Society. The recently formed Cymric Society will hold its inaugural meeting in the lower Temperance Hall on Friday evening next, the 30th inst., at 8 o'clock. The committee hope that all interested in things Welsh will attend. There will be an excellent programme of songs, recitations, selections on the harp, and speeches. Admission will be free by ticket, which may be obtained from the secretaries, Messrs G. J. Griffith and T. Bleddyn. Special Services at the Albany. — The Albany Chapel was well filled on Sunday on the occasion of the monthly mission service, when the Rev. Owen Jacobs preached a striking sermon on Give God a chance." The preacher said that God had given every possible chance to human beings. As the Universe was the expression of God'a power, so man was the expression of His love, and when man turned his back on his Creator, God lost His expression of love. One of the chances man could give God was to believe, and when man refused to do this, he gave God no chance to save him.- During thfl service, the Misses Bollom, Albert Street, rendered a duett, His Holy Angels." St. Mary's Sunday School.—The scholars of this flourishing Sunday School had their annual prize-giving last Thursday. At five o'clock a large number sat down to tea and did justice to the good things provided. Afterwards, under the presidency of the vicar, Rev. T. Owen Phillips, the prizes were distributed by Mrs John James to the deserving scholars, and later the whole happy gathering was entertained to the following musical and varied programme arranged by Miss McKenzie. Piano- forte duet, the Misses McKenzie and Cole; recita- tion, Beatrice Davies; aotion song, Girl Scholars; eong. Leslie McKenzie recitation, Mabel Hadfield action song, Ten Choir boys; recitation. Cyril Jones; song, Muriel Thomas song, Mr W. McKenzie (junior); chorus, "Lullaby," Girl Scholars. "God Save the King." Miss Wybrow, assisted by other helpers, ably managed the tea arrangements, and the Vicar duly thanked the teachers for their work. A vote of thanks to Mrs James was proposed by Mr W. R. Price, and :carried with acclamation. This closed a very pleasant evening. Vawer's Charity.-A meeting of Alderman Vawer's Charity was held at the Council Chamber on Monday, when there were presentMr Edward Eaton Evans (presiding), Alderman W. J. Jones (mayor), Alderman T. H. Thomas, Mr R. T. P. Williams, Mr H. J. E. Price and Mr Isaiah Reynolds. —The first business was the co-optation of trustees in the place of Mr Hugh Thomas and Mr Fred Green, and on the motion of Mr R. T. P. Williams, these trustees were re-elected. The chairman (Mr Eaton Evans) and the vice-chairman (Mr F. Green) were re-appointed. The statement of accounts was read showing that there was a balance of X26 Is 8d in band fro last year. Payments amounting tn .EM 12$ m w6re maae ? a?amea, McTtEerewM now a balance in hand of X30 14s 8id.—Mr R. T. P. Williams asked if the Trustees could not appoint another pensioner, but the Chairman said the present balance was necessary to carry them on until June.—Mr Price: If we have a balance of about £ 30 every year we could appoint another.— The Chairman said there would be no receipts until June, and the payments between now and then would have to be met out of the present balance.— The matter dropped. Presentation to Mr. J. L. Jenkins.-An interesting gathering was held at the Shire Hall on January 14th, when Mr J. L. Jenkins, who has been secretary to the Pembrokeshire County Chemists' Association since its formation, was presented on behalf of the members of the Association with a silver cigarette casket and a silver oigarette case in recognition of valuable services un- grudgingly rendered. The presentation was made by Major Treweeks, Pembroke, who paid a tribute to Mr Jenkins for his faithful and devoted work on behalf of the chemists of the county. In spite of family bereavements, be said, Mr Jenkins had continued to perform the many onerous duties pertaining to the office, and a more efficient secretary it would be impossible for the Association to have.- Mr Jenkins, who was very much taken by surprise, feelingly acknowledged the gifts, and said be very much valued the presentation as a token of their appreciation and regard,—Mr Howard Llewellin, chemist, Milford, proposed a vote of thanks to the small committee who had organised the presentation and to Mr Pugb Davies, for having promoted it. He was particularly pleased that a Haverfordwest chemist should have taken the initiative in the matter.—Mr Pugh Davies replied, remarking that Mr Jenkins had rendered the Association such valu- able services that his only regret was that they bad not acknowledged them in some more substantial form.

Haverfordwest Sessions. The Haverfordwest petty sessions were held on Monday before Mr T. Randle Dawkins (in the chair), Mr T. Baker and Mr C. C. Saies. A DEFENDANT'S DENIALS. Thomas Jones, mason, Milford Road, pleaded not guilty to being drunk and disorderly in Milford Road. P.C. Davies stated that at 11.15 p.m. on the 10th inst. he saw the defendant amongst half a dozen young fellows singing and making use of bad language. Jones was drunk and witness had to threaten to lock him up before he was persuaded by his friends to go away. Defendant, who appeared to be greatly excited, declared that the witness was a hundred yards from the spot. P.S. Morgan was called and corroborated the constable, adding that the defendant was amongst half a dozen other drunken men, but Jones was the worst of the lot and made use of very bad language. He said he would trip witness up. Defendant: He was interfering with my brother, aud blood is thicker than water. Afterwards defendant went into the box and said he met a friend named Frederick Davies at the bottom of Dew Street. On reaching Milford Road he noticed P.S. Morgan pushing his brother about in the dark, and witness told the Sergeant that if he did not stop that he would be reported. Sergeant Morgan then turned round and walked away. Defendant added that he was not inside a public bouse that evening in fact he had not had any beer to drink for a long time. The Clerk What did you have? Defendant: Nothing at all. It was mentioned that defendant was last con- victed in 1919, and a fine of as inclusive was imposed. A LIEUTENANT FINED. Lieut. Charles Heyland Evans, of the Border Regiment, Pembroke Dock, was summoned for driving a tri-car without a rear light on December 25th. T.C. Bodman told the court that on the evening of Christmas Day he saw the defendant outside the Castle and cautioned him as to his absence of a rear light. Defendant replied that it had just gone out, and went into the Castle Hotel. Three hours later he saw the defendant on the Salutation Square, and the rear light was still out. Witness added that there was no oil in the lamp. A fine of 10s inclusive was imposed. MAINTENANCE ARREARS. Thomas Llewellyn, labourer, Skerryback, St. Ish- maels, was summoned at the instance of Alice Howells, now of the Haverfordwest Workhouse, for non-payment of maintenance arrears amounting to £117s 6d. Respondent said he was willing to pay the debt now due, but not to go on paying for the child's maintenance. He said he had a wife and three children to maintain, and only earned 14s a week with boose and garden free. The Clerk admitted it was a hard case, but provi- sion had to be made for that unfortunate child. S1 The bench pointed out that the alternative to pay- ment was imprisonment, and Mr Dawkins remarked that if the defendant had complied with the order by paying the Is 6d each week he would not have felt it so heavy. Defendant promised to wipe out the arrears in a month, and on this understanding the case was adjourned. THE MILL INN. The license of the Mill Inn, Cartlettt, was trans- ferred to Margaret Ann James, sister of the late licensee, Mr Isaac James. D.C.C. James, who had no objection to the appli-I cation, said he understood Miss James intended carrying on the house for the benefit of the orphan,
HAVERFORDWEST TOWN I mmoiL. Borough Surveyor Applies for Increased Salary. ———-— Time to Think it over. HUGE WASTE OF WATER. Householders Cautioned. I A meeting of the Haverfordwest Town Council was ? beld last night, when there were presentAlder- man W. f. -Tones (i-navor), Aldermen T. H. Thomas and G. M. PhilJips; Councillors W. G. Rowlands, Philip White, G. H. Llewellin, R. Siunett, H. J. Rogers, Wm. Evans and Gilbert Thomas i HOUSEHOLDERS CAUTIONED. I The water committee reported that a great increase had taken place in the pumping of water since the extra two hours supply per day had been given, and the committee urged upon consumers to take all precautions to avoid waste. The committee added that they consider it necessary in the future to prosecute in all cases of wilful or negligent waste. The Surveyor was instructed to repair the hedge at Crowhill Waterworks. Mr Bevan submitted several tenders for a quantity of scrap iron at the Jubilee Gardens yard, and the committee recommended the acceptance of the tender of Messrs. W. Evans & Son of the foundry Haverfordwest, at £2 6s per ton delivered at their yard in Bridge Street. Moving the adoption of the report, Mr G. H. Llewellin said it was some months now since the Council decided to extend the time at which the .water supply was available from 12 to 14 hours, and on that occasion an appeal was made to householders to co-operate with the Council in making the experi- ment a success by preventing waste. It was found, however, that the waste was now enormous, the extra quantity of water pumped being something like 130,000 gallons. That entailed seven or eight hours extra pumping each week, and involving additional wear and tear of the machinery. In the opinion of the committee the quantity of water supplied to the town was ample without this extra pumping, being 35 gallons per head per dav. He should say that was a record for the United Kingdom as the average in Cardiff was only 20 gallons per head per day. Unless the public prevented this waste the Council would be obliged to revert to the 1! £ °U3 pamP?n^ per day, which would be regrett- ￼ K it Wa8 ￼ hope of several members tthhaltt this extension of two hours was only the first step to a permanent supply. If there was to be a curtailment the responsibility would rest with the public, and he appealed to householders to take such precautionary measures as would prevent this huge waste of water. Mr H. J. Rogers seconded, and the report was adopted. TO DESTROY OFFENSIVE SMELLS. The sanitary committee reported having let No. 4 aSttleipnnJel y rTrerrace, to Mr John Nicholas Recom- mended that consent be given to the Postmaster General to erect a line of telegraph poles from Quay Street to the Workhouse, the poles to be placed and the work to be done to the satisfaction of the Borough Survevor.-The question of an installation of a telephone service connecting the Council's under- takings with the Council Chamber was referred for the consideration of the Council. The Surveyor reported that the tests required by the Local Government Board to be made in the ground proposed for a new cemetery were in every way satisfactory. It was also reported that the work in connection with laying a new sewer in St. Thomas Green had been completed at a cost of X48 IDs being 19s in excess^of the Surveyor's estimate, which thailanxmi-kt* 1nn.(jtury.- > The committee recommended that a new sewer be laid in Fountain Row at a cost of 1.18 10s The Committee considered a report submitted by the Surveyor as to the provision of a refuse destruc- tor but they are not prepared to make a report at present. The matter will be further considered at next meeting. The Surveyor produced his report as to the pro- vision of eight Webb's sewer ventilating lamps, six of No. 1 at X20 each— £ 120, and two No. 2 atEl,5 each — £ 30, and X40 cost of erecting, and the Committee recommend that application be made to the Local ° ^00m Board for sanction to borrow the sum of X200. Aid. G. M. Phillips moved, and Mr G. H. Llewellin sccoudcn, the adoption of the report. Mr Philip White moved the omission of the para- graph to borrow £ 200 for sewer ventilating lamps and said he was opposed to spending the rate- payers' money on a useless matter. Mr Llewellin said that if the lamps were useless, or even if there were any doubt as to their utility, he would not have seconded the adoption of the report. They had one of these lamps on trial in Haverford- west for a considerable time and it was entirely satisfactory, and their experience agreed with re- ports which the Borough Surveyor had received from various parts of the country. Offensive smells had disappeared, and it was after all the truest economy to safeguard the health of the community. Mr White Very foolish expenditure. Dr. Brigstocke mentioned that the medical papers spoke very highly of these lamps. The Surveyor, in answer to a question, said that under the influence of the lamp gas did not remain in the sewers long enough to become putrid and dangerous. The Mayor referred to the large expenditure pro- posed, and remarked that Haverfordwest was only a small town. On the motion of Mr Sinnett the matter was deferred for a month in order that the Surveyor might present the Council with fuller information on the subject, and with this exception the report was adopted. The matter of the telephone service was referred to the Council in committee. GAS ENGINEER'S FEE. The committee recommended the engagement of Mr J. Ferguson Bell, M.Inst., C.E., Derby, as con- sulting engineer in connection with the new gas holder at a fee of not exceeding x5 per cent on the cost of the holder and tank. The committee instructed the Surveyor to lay two new sections of 2in. gas mains, one near the Taber- nacle Chapel at a cost of Xio, and one at North Gate at a cost of £15. Thp Surveyor was also instructed to purchase 60 gas cooker number plates at a cost of .£1 las. John Moss (junr.) was appointed lamp-lighter until the February meeting in the place of his father, who bad met with an aocident. Mr W. G. Rowlands remarked that X5 per cent seemed a big fee to pay Mr Bell. The Town Clerk stated that the cost ef the holder would be fl,304, and he read correspondence which had passed between him and Mr Bell on the subject of the latter's engagement. Mr Bell wrote that it was difficult to name a fee but it would not exceed 5 per cent of the cost of the holder and the tank. This would include all travelling expenses, testings, reports-to Council, &c. The Town Clerk remarked that Councillor Wm. Evans had suggested the offering of a definite and nclusive fee, and Mr LI-awellin moved that X50 be offered. This was seconded by Mr H. J. Rogers, Mr Gilbert Thomas mentioned that the 5 per cent would only work out at £135, and he thought they had better accept Mr Bell's offer as it stood. Mr Llewellin's resolution was, however, eventually agreed to, Alderman Thomas remarking that it was a very fair offer. VAWER'S CHARITY. The Mayor was re-elected a trustee of Vawer's charity. A CREDIT BALANCE. XI The Mayor said it was very gratiying to find that the Town Council, after having an adverse balance for many years, now had a credit balance of £-15. That w z,t, a very creditable state of affairs, and reflected credit on all concerned. (Hear, hear). Such a thing as a credit balance once happened last year, but before then it bad not occurred for some- thing like a quarter of a century. HOOK TO FREYSTROP ROAD. A circular letter inviting subscriptions to this pro Bosed new road was received from Mr Joseph ?avies, clerk to the councils concerned, but the Town Clerk said that the Corporation had no fund which they could legally devote to it. Mr Sinnett remarked that while thousands of pounds were spent on improving roads for motor cars, it was regrettable that a locality should have to solicit private subscriptions in order to be provided with a road. The Town Clerk said the Council could not expend money for any purpose outside the Borough, and Mr Llewellin remarked that members could do the same as they did in the case of the Senghenydd fund-pass round the hat. The matter dropped. INCREASE OF SALARY WANTED. The following letter was received from Mr Bevan I beg leave to lay before you an application for an increase of my salary, which has remained stationary for the last five years at £ 150, made up as follows:—Inspector of nuisances (half repaid by County Council), £100; waterworks engineer, £ 20; district surveyor and surveyor under the Public Health Acts, ;CIO;.g.as engineer, CIO; borough sur- veyor, with supervision of all the Council's freehold and leasehold properties, xio; total, tlbo. In connection with your waterworks undertaking, I feel sure you will appreciate that, while coal, oil, labour and everything necessary to maintain the works has gone up in price, and that the supply hasj been very much extended and improved durmg the j last six years, I have succeeded in reducing the cost of pumping by over X)50 year, and brought about considerable saving of expenditure in other direc- tions. H ￼ ￼ surveyor and surveyor under the Public Health Acts, with ? control of all the highways, pavements, sewers, scaveng'ing, machinery, imp? ments, etc., and s' .3Caveng'ug, machinery, imple- other work involved in connection with the main roads in the Borough, I venture to say that £ 10 a year is altogether inadequate remuneration for the duties performed in this department. As regards your gasworks undertaking, you have been good enough to entrust me with the sole management and supervision of that department 0m?JuworH3' wbich includes all mains, serviceR, meters, cookers, street lighting, etc., and since these duties have come into my hands tbe revenue from your sales of gas have gone up from 12,572 in 1)0/ to ?2,998 in 1913, notwithstanding a reduction in the price of gas during that period. In 1907, when I took over the duties, you bad 45 gas cookers out on hire, and now vou have 133 out, which shows the enormous growth of the business and increased responsibility of management, and I feel also that £10 a year is quite insufficient pay for the work I have to carry out in your gas department. I can assure you that I have never spared any effort to carry out all the duties that have devolved upon me to the very best of my ability, and in the very best interest of the town in which it has been my privilege and honour to serve for close on seven years, and I feel sure that my efforts have invariably given you complete satisfaction. I can bonestly say my salary is very much lower than that generally paid in similar towns with corresponding duties and responsibilities, and I beg, most respectfully, to ask you for a substantial increase, and at the same time assuring you the continuation of my devoted services. Thanking you.in anticipation of a favourable con- sideration." The Ñlayor said tbe application had been sprung rninn t' a?d he suggested that it be deferred until tnh,! e next meeting, a suggestion which the Council unanimously agreed to.
Colliery Developments in I Pembrokeshire. ) A LANDSHIPPING PROJECT. For some time past efforts have been made to secure a firm who would work the minerals on the Landshipping Estate, and we learn that a draft agreement is now being prepared between the trustees of Mr James Douglas Talbot Stanley, the owner, and Mr Arnold Lupton, M.I.C.E., F.G.H.'I, etc., ex-M.P., of Victoria Street, Westminster, and Mr Frederick Charles Swallow, M.E., Gloucester, to lease 2,139 acres or thereabouts for 60 years. Messrs Lupton and Swallow, as lessees, have the right to sink pits, erect colliery works, railways, tramways, bye-product works, electrical works, iron- works, &c. The reports of mining engineers go to show that there are 34 million tons of anthracite coal in the taking, with high percentage of carbon, some of it as high as 95 per cent. There are seven workable seams ranging from 2 ft. to 10 ft. thick. The Landshipping Estate borders on the river Cleddau, at the mouth of which wharves can be erected and coal shipped at little cost. With this in view negotiations are proceeding with firms at Cardiff and Grimsby to erect some huudrids of workmen's cottages in the district. It is proposed to spend X150,000 in the develop, meats.. Mr Arnold Lupton is well-known for the put he took as mineral adviser to Mr Lloyd George in his 1910 Budget.
Pembrokeshire Hunt Ball. A BRILLIANT FUNCTION. The annual ball in connection with the Pem- brokeshire Hunt was held at the Assembly Rooms Haverfordwest on Thursday night and was a brilliant success. A magnificent collection of flowers was received from the gardens at St. Bride's and Williamsbon, and with these the flora} decora- tions were very tastefully carried out by Miss Higgon and Miss Davies, Glanafon. The rooms ground floor and in the basement were laid out as supper rooms, and the table decorations, con- sisting mainly of some choice specimens of tulips and Christmas roses, were much admired. The front hall was used as a sitting out room, and a room on the first floor as the tea and coffee buffet and as a sitting out room. The general decorations which were also extremely effective were the work of Messrs Price and Davies. Music was qnnnliwl hv Mr Roberts's Cardiff band, and the waiting was under the management of Mr Thacker, Llandilo. The steward swore Capt. Higgon, Mr J. Howell, i)I.F.H., Mr L.

PEMBROKESHIRE HUNT. Following the huut ball on Thursday night the Pembrokeshire hounds for the first time for many i year5 met on the Mariner's Square on Friday morning, when about forty horsemen were present. Among those who arrived by motor car, mounted, and on foot, were Mr Jack Howells, M.F.H., the Hon. Colwyn Philipps, Captain and Miss Hore, Lieut. Evans, Mr Allen Lewib, Miss Reid, Boulston; Mr H. T. Fisher, Denant; Mr W. G. Eaton-Evans, Mrs Harries, Hilton; Mr W. Roch, Mra Morris Owen, Mr R. P. L. Penn, Mr L. Penn, Miss Penn, Mis6 Tute, Camrose Miss Madgo Summers, Rose- moor Mrs and Miss Taylor (Tynewydd, Brecon) Mr R. H. B. Summers. MrAsprey, Alderman George Merchant Phillips, Mr George Jenkins, Haythog Mr W. Roch James, Mr George Howells &c., &c- The pack proceeded straight to Denant, and thence through Denant Mill to Denant Mountain, in all places drawing blank. This was a great disappointment as four or five foxes had been left there on the occasion of the previous meet, but the absence of Reynard was attributed to the long spell of wintry weather. The hounds next returned to Dreen Hill, and then went on to Cinamon Grove and Cranham Moors, but were rewarded with similar luck, and as the scent was very poor the maeter thought it advisable to call them off. Owing to the severe weather this was the first meet for nearly three weeks. To make up for the absence of snort some of the young men indulged in jumping in Mr Reynolds's field at Cinamon Grove, and Mr Tom Williams of Porttield had a nasty fall and was dragged some distance along the ground through his foot remaining entangled in the stirrup. 0
