EDITOPIAL NOTIZS., I The Cilobc, the eldest London evening news- paper, is still in a state of "suspense." The sup- pressed paper was started in 1802 as the result of a quarrel between the London publishers and the Morning Post, which was very independent in its treatment of publishers ad vertisements, For sixty years the Globe professed Liberal principles, then suddenly turned Conservative. Lord Palm- crston is said to have supplied it with confidential information through the medium of his private, secretary, and among the contributors to its col- umns was Charles Buller, beloved of Thomas Cariylc and "Father Prout," the pseudonym of the versatile geniua known in private life as Francis Mahoney. In its time the Globe has been a kind of journalistic Aaron's rod amongst news- paper?, having absorbed at one time or another at least half a dozen other journals, among them being The Traveller, the Evening Statesman, the True Briton, and Titc Ar,-its. « «■ Mr L. J. Roberts, His .Majesty's Inspector of Schools, who has been promoted from Carnarvon- shire to Glamorganshire, has occupied a deser- vedly high place in the esteem of the teachers with whom he became associated in the discharge of his public duties. The teachers of Carnarvon- ehire sincerely regret his departure to another sphere of labour, aaid they gave expression to their feelings by the resolution passed at their meeting in Bangor, on Saturday. Mr Roberts, by his courtesy and sympathetic manner, had gained the confidence of the teachers. They, in turn, have recorded their unanimous opinion that there is no doubt that the progress made in tho. educaÍion of the county is largely duo to his keen insight, his breadth of view, and his power of presenting the things that really mattered." Not only the teachers, but Mr Roberts' numerous friends out- Bide the teaching profession, will join in the wish that success may attend his work in Glamorgan- Rhire- The appointment of head teachers, or rather the mode of filling up vacancies by the Carnarvon- shire Education Committee, does not apparently find favour with the majority of the teachers in the. county. They contend that when a head teacher has to be appointed prime consideration should be given to applicants from amongst teach- ers already in the service of the Committee. That 's quite a natural view to take, and the teachers in a resolution which they are forwarding to the Education Committee on the subject point out that other education authorities make it a prac- tice of promoting to important headships teachers < already in their service. A singular case occupied the attention of the Carlisle Consistory Court, this week. It was an application by the Vicar of Gilsland for a faculty to authorise the removal from a certain head- stone in the churchyard of the name of t.he maker, or in the alternative, to remove the headstone from the churchyard. There is hardly any church- yard or cemetery throughout the country in which one does not find a few tombstones with the name of the maker thereon—not very prominently placed, it is true, but still there to be seen. The Consistory Court granted the application, and the Chancellor, m giving judgment, referred to the words complained of as "aii audacious and offen- sive* advertisement." The case serves to make known the fact that, if objection is raised to a manufacturer name appearing on a tombstone in any churchyard, the power exists to have the name removed. a » • Throughout the week the recruiting campaign is being carried on vigorously by means of the systematic canvass under Lord Derby's scheme &Tic) by means of public meetings held in different centres It is, however, a pity that men of reeruitable age do not attend these meetings ;n much larger numbers. At Bangor, for instance, Sir Henry Jones, Mr Seddon and Mr David Rhys made stirring appeals to the young men of the town to give themselves to the service of the country; and thoee who were present could not fail to reajiee that they have a duty to perform which brooks no delay in the performance. It is frequently said that even at this hour some men have not yet realised to the full t,he serious- ness of their country's call. There can be no excuse for such ignorance; it reets with them- selves whether the voluntary system, now upon its trial, shall prevail. At Llangefni, yesterday, the recruiting meeting did not draw the right kind of audience, and it is not surprising that Colonel T. E. J. Lloyd, who presided, strongly denounced the apathy of young men who preferred to walk the streets heedless of the crisis which faces us. 1-f ever conscription has to be put in force no man of reeruitable age, whether he lives in town or rural district, can say that sufficient opportunity was not afforded him to come forward of his own free will to serve his King and country. # No election couJd be more popular in Carnarvon than that of Mr Charlee A. Jones to the mayoral chair for the ensuing year. All classes welcome his appointment as chief magistrate of the county town. At the Borough Police Court, on Monday, Mr Jones, in virtue of his office, took his 80],t on the bench. The occasion was unique, because for forty-two' years he has acted as magistrates' clerk, a post which lie has to resign during his mayoralty. The congratulations extended to him by Bench and Bar empha.iæd the esteem in whioh Mr Jones is held by his colleagues. # The Board of Education, in a circular letter to training colleges, made known that all men students of military ago and physically fit shouJd be permitted, if they so desire, to join the Forces without waiting to complete even the shortened course of training specially provided in view of the situation. Since it is understood that the first group cannot be embodied until December 15th at the earliest, the Board of Education points out that students can therefore bo attested at once, "with the prospect of being able, in any event, to complete practically the whole of the present term's work."
19th CENTURY REMINISCENCES. I In the early eighties the Carnarvon Lock-up, or Police Station, was not a very desirable place either for those who had to discharge their du- ties there or for malefactors. Mr Llewelyn Tur- ner, in bringing the matter to the notice of the Court of Quarter Sessions, said that the existing Police-office at Carnarvon was improper in the extreme to confine prisoners, there being no night residence for the police, and the cells being nothing more or less than damp and loathesome dungeolls in an old tower infested with rats, and having only a sitting-room for the police." The suggestion that a new building should be provided was favourably received by the Court, and steps were taken to carry it into effect. II » Soon after the Chester and Holyhead railway was opened, the Company had to prosecute peo- ple for travelling without paying their fares. Of that number was one John W illiams, a pig drover, who, appeared before the Bangor magis- trates to answer for his attempt to defraud the Railway Company. Williams, it appears, was a geTltleman who "insisted upon his rights," though it was subsequently impressed upon him. by means of a fine of six shillings and costs, that he had quite an erroneous idea of his rights" regarding railway travelling. At that time, pig drovers despatching a full truck-load of animals were entitled to a free pass, but Williams' con- signment only half filled a truck. So convinced was he of his "rights" that len challenged by the ticket-collector "he absolutely refused to pay his fare." Williams was not the only man in the early days of railways who learnt wisdom by ex- perience. < In the year 1851, Mr Hugh Williams, a printer at Bangor, sought subscribers to a "splendid portrait of the celebrated bard, Talhaiarn, c-ii- graved on steel in a superior style." Proofs, with autograph, on India paper were quoted at 7s 6d, and proofs on plain paper at 5s 6d, intend- ing subscribers being advised to be sharp with their orders as "only a limited number will be printed, and the plate will afterwards be des- troyed." Commenting upon this portrait, the North Wales Chronicle said: "The admirers of this deservedly-much-talked-of bard may now gratify themselves with a most excellent likeness. His fine manly features are faithfully represented, and his intelligent head, combining in his counten- ance all that is pleasant in the human face, ren- ders the portrait truly a companion." < < The North Wales Chronicle of March 4th, 1852, recorded the fact that On Monday last (March 1st), the first ergine ran from the junction station of the Chester and Holyhead railway to Portdinorwic and back. The trial proved highly satisfactory to all the parties concerned as weli as gratifying to the public generally. Mr Lee, the resident engineer of the Chester and Holy- head Railway, and other gentlemen, were pre- sent. ■ • a • A movement in 1852 to build a new Church at Holyhead met with very cordial and liberal re- sponse. Amongst the principal subscribers were Mr William Owen Stanley, £ 500; the Principal and Fellows of Jesus College, Oxford. £ 200; Lord Boston, £ 125; the Marquis of Anglesey, £ 100; Sir Richard Bulkelev, £100; the Lords of the Adniiraltv, EIOO: the Hev. Charles Williams, £ 100; and the Bishop of Bangor, E50. The site for the Church was given by the Marquis of Anglesey. I o < During the progress of building the Holyhead Breakwater a large quantity of stone was quarried for the purpose from Holyhead Mountain. On one occasion, blasting operations on a large scale were, carried out. In describing the event the North Wales Chronicle says: "A shaft (55 feet deep, with 66 feet of heading in the bottom, and three chambers for the powder), containing the large quantity of 67201bs. of gunpowder, was fired by wires attached to a galvanic battery. The shot was instantaneous and very successful, throwing down upwards of 30,000 tons of atone. ( t

I STRIKES A MINE IN THE ENGLISH CHANNEL. I EIGHTY-FIVE PERSONS MISSING. HOLYHEAD MEMBERS OF THE CREW. It is with a feeling of profound regret that we have to record this week yet another disaster to one of the London and North-Western Railway Company's Holyhead eteamers. The hospital ship "Anglia" was a eister ship to the old "Hibernia" (H.M.S. "Tara"), a photograph of which we reproduced in the Holyhèad Chronicle last week. The following official particulars were issued by the Press Bureau on Wednesday night;- The War Office reports that the hospital ship "Anglia" struck a mine in the Channel to-day and sank. The total number on board was 13 officers and 372 other ranks, of whom about three hundred were saved by a patrol vessel. Another ship proceeding to the rescue was also sunk by anotiier mine. The names of those who lost their lives will be communicated to the next of kin and made public without delay.
THIRTY-TWO OF THE CREW I UNACCOUNTED FOR. DISTRESSING SCENES AT HOLYHEAD. I Our Holyhead reporter writes:—Tragedy fol- lows tragedy. Following upon the announcement last week by the Admiralty of the sinking of H.M.S. 'Tara" (formerly known as the "Hiber- nia") in the Eastern Mediterranean as the result of an attack by two enemy submarines, comedy the equally .sad news of the sinking of her sister ship, H.M.S. "Anglia." Early last evening a repo.rt gained currency that the "Anglia" had been lost through coming in contact with a floating mine, this distressing report being v-erified later in the evening by the receipt by relatives of eome of the crew that the vessel had gone down, but that they were safe. Whikt anxious parent.s and rela- tives were still waiting for news regarding the identity of the 34 men on the Tara" reported to be missing, there comes the news of this second tragedy of the sea Distressing scenes were witnessed lasc night both at the General Pest Office and the Marine Office, men, women and children congregating at both places in the hope of hearing news that their dear ones were safe. Shortly atter-nine o clock-official intimation was received to the effect that of the orew twenty- four had been saved. leaving thirty-two unaccount- ed for. Out of the total crew of fifty-six litty- three belonged to this district.
THE LAST SCENES. I AN EYE WITNESS'S DESCRIPTION. I A correspondent, telegraphing to the Standard, gives the following account of the tragedy I he "Anglia" hospital ship, with 400 on boaird, of whom 200 were cot cases, was sunk shortly after mid-day, yesterday, on her voyage from France, by a floating mine. The vessel wasv heavily struck on the starboard side forward, and: at once took on a heavy list. News of the disaster was sent by wireless without delay, and the vessels in the vicinity raced to the rescue. When they reached the "Anglia' she was very badly down by the head. Her propellers were racing in the air, and the stern was eo high out of the water that one of the rescuing boats was able to pass under it. This enabled 40 men tOo be got off, "but of these two died before reaching the shore. Up to the present, it 16 stated, over 300 have been saved. Rescue work was c,%rrlpd out with the gyeatest heroism and under most serious diiffculties by men in boat? from the vessels in the neighbour- hood. Unfortun?y, one boat with would-be rescuers was also sunk.
SURVIVORS IN LONDON. I ARRIVAL OF TWO HOSPITAL TRAINS AT I CHARING CROSS. Two hospital trains bearing a number of wounded, including some of the survivors of the hospital ship" Anglia," arrived at Charing Cross Station on Wednesday night, There was little to indicate that the trains did not carry their usual complement of wounded soldiers direct from France, Gallipoli, or any other battle front, and that they bore men who a few hours earlier had been victims of a disaster while already wounded. When the men were assisted from the trains and taken to the waiting motor cars by the Red Cross officials it was noticed that some of them showed signs of their recent immersion. When their kits were removed it was to be noticed that among them were some which were still wet. The men were hurriedly transferred to the motor cars and distributed among the various London hospitals. One train arrived at seven o clock, and the other at eight o'clock, but. their removal was so expeditiously carried out that only a very small portion of the crowd which usually throngs Charing Cross Stdtion at that time of the even- ing knew of their jtrrival. STEAMER THAT CONVEYED THE KING. I The Secretary ot tue A?n?'? ￼ the following telegram which the 'irst Lord of the Admiralty had received from Lord Mam- fordham •— "The King is shocked to hear that the hospital ship 'Anglia,' which so recently conveyed him across the Channel, has been sunk by a mine. His Majesty is grieved -at the loiss incurred and trusts that the survivors have not und-uly suffered from the terrible exposure to which they must have been subjected. Please ex- press the King 's heartfelt sympathy with the families of those who have perished. (Signed) STAMFORDHAM. RESCUING SHIP BLOWN UP. "n I The Prezs Association correspondent at a iiel port stawd:- A. ,• The British hospital ship "Angha, with about 300 wounded ofhoers and men on board, was blown up by a mine in the Channel yesterday. A steamer in the vicinity (which proved to be the "Lti.s.;taiiia," of London) at once lowered two boats to go to the assistance of the Anglia." Just after their boat, had left the collier the men saw their own ves.sel blown up, but were able to save the remainder of the crew, who alto- gether numbered about 25. The "Angha," which is stated to be the vessel on which the King recently returned from France, subsequently Rank. MANY COT CASES. I A torpedo-boat steamed to the scene and brought some of the rescued to port. Those saved include the matron, two nurses, and the captain. There were a large number of cot cases on board. When the news of the disaster became known here there were many affecting scenes. and the distress was inten idled Whe-ll the dead bod of some of the wounded soldiers, wrapped in the Union Jack, were i ,.dcd from a small boat. On Wednesday afternoon the two masts of the "Anglia," with the hospital flag still flying, were visible from shore. The crew of the were landed.

HOLYHEAD SURVIVORS. I THURSDAY NIGHT. Tha news,, as already indicated, has caist a gloom over the town and is the sole topic of conversation. Much anxiety is felt re- garding the fate of members of the crew. 'lhe loss of this hospital ship within sight of land is a tragedy that grips the imagina- tion. If it gives cause lor sorrow, it also furnishes much to be thankful for. It adds one more to tho many stories of heroism on the sea. Of the 385 wounded on board there were no less than 200 cot cases—men seriously wounded that they had to lie abed and could make no physical effort to save themselves. From the accounts which have appeared it ;is evident thalt the wounded men on the "Anglia" were equal to the test. And if the wounded men on board were splendid, so, too, were the doctors, nurses and sailors,, who stuck to theiir posts and helped so many of their wounded feJ Jow-croa t ures into the boats. Apart from this aspect of the loss of tho hospital ship, to us in Holyhead the tragedy makes another appeal, for the "Anglia" was an old friend, and many a Holyhead man had travelled in her on one or more of her numerous trips across chan- nel. Built at Dumbarton in 1900 by Messrs Denny Bros., the "Anglia" was a veasel of 1862 tons grass. She was commissioned by the Government in August, 1914, and was employed as fleet messenger until the fol- lowing April, when it was converted into a "ospital ship, since which time it had carried wounded sold-ers from France to England. NAMES OF SURVIVORS. I Up to the time of writing-midnight-it has been officially ascertained here that 31 members of the crew have been saved. The following is the list of survivors at present known:— Capt. L. J. MaUning. Chief Officer R. H. Horner. Second Officer Geo. N. Thomas. Third Offioer Owen Price. Geo. Bagnall, boatswain. Wm. Williams, quartermaster. H. Pierce, second engineer. H. Williams, fourth engineer. Owen Roberts, leading stoker. T. H. Meakin, electrician. D. T. Bockey, wireless operator. R. Jones, seaman. R. Roberts, seaman. John Roberts, seaman. Robert Evans, seaman. John Higigtins, seaman. Hugh McKevitt, seaman. John Williams, seaman. Edward Williams, fireman. Roland Griffiths, fireman. R. J. Jones, fireman. W. Smithson, fireman. W. Williams, trimmer. M. Fennelly, steward. J. T. Hugnes,, steward. Richard Thomas, steward. Hugh Thomas, steward. W. Bagnall, cook. W. Hughes, carpenter. John Jones (Ty Du), fireman. FRIDAY MORNING. In a list of the survivors, which has been re- ceived at Holyhead, appears the name of W. Williams, seaman," but there is no such name in- cluded among the seamen in the list of the crew. Inquiries are being made as to the man's iden- tity. Some of the survivors reached Holyhead by the 2.17 train this morning, and others came by the succeeding train. It is understood that some of those who have not arrived are in hospital, but that their injuries are not serious. One of the men, R. J. Jones, had a remarkable experience. He was thrown into the sea when the "Anglia" met with disaster, and was picked up and taken on board the Lusitania," only to lind himself again in the water when the latter vessel went down. He was eventually rescued. Up to ten o'clock this morning no further in for- mation as to the remainder of the crew had been received. HEROISM OF NURSES. I "MEN FIRST." I -1 .1 -? I I I .? ?, I I ine liailv Mail states yiat rrivate J. Argent, aged 18, llltii Battalion, Canadians, shot through the right thigh a week ago, said: — "I was lying in my cot in a large bunkroom with about twenty other stretcher cases. I heard a great noise. It sounded somewhere underneath me. Then the woodwork and everything bulged in and I was shot clean out of my cot through the starboard side of the ship into the sea. 'the wreckage was falling all around me. One piece struck me on the head and another in the back. I think six or seven other fellows were shot through the ship's side with me. I know I saw hands and heads all around me. I suppose I am a strong swimmer—1 have always been a home in the water, ever since I was eight years old. "I got hold of a piece of wood. Then I saw a cargo boat (the collier 'LmitMua,' whicit was ateo mined) coming to the rescue, and up .-he went into the air. I must have been in the w ater half an hour. A small boat came up, and two sailors pulled me out. "We were just two miles off Dover when she sank. My bandage and pyjamas were torn off me, and 1 was practically naked in the water. After I was pulled into the boat a woman's hand ctvme up alongside. The tsailors puiled her aboard, but she was dead. I want my father to know that I am alive. I-le Is iii a factory ,t Woolwich." "NO, TOMMY; YOU FIRST." I Lance-Corpora I bairest, 1st Yorkshire and Lancashire Regiment, invalided" home, said:- "I stayed on for a few minutes after the ex- plosion, an/ then managed .to crawl out of bed, a.nd went on deck in my pyjamas. I sa w the sisters helping the wounded soldiers to get into lifebelt,. Our "nurseys' are just wonderful. They were refusing lifebelts themselves. 'Fight- ing men limt, was .what they all said. "I remember helping one sister along the deck. Then we had a litt-le argument. I tried to push her into a vessel alongside, 'No, Tommy,' she said, and. her face was set firm, but white as death; 'you must go first.' Just then I slipped and fell into the water. When I thought I was done up came a boat and I was pulled in." Signaller J. Hunter, of the 1-3rd London Regiment, said to a London evening Neius representative:— "Five of my comrades got into a lifeboat, but we could not get it off the davits. I was pulling at the rope underneath when the ship heeled over a.ud I got pinned under the boat. I was hanging over the, aide of the ship head down, my foot being crushed. I lay there five minutes, and then the ship gave a lurch which released my foot and 1 slid along the deck and nung on to the rail- ing. The ship must have heeled over very far, because I remember lying on the red- painted bottom before I jumped into the water. I got hold of a log of wood with -three men ciiaiging to it, and in a few minutes we passed a man with his right arm badly frac- tured My chum and I got hold of him and paddled alongside the log of wood again. We hunc, on to lim for some time, but the water was terrificallv cold. He begged us to let him go. Then we managed to get his right leg over the leg of wood, and four of us got our knees underneath him. We must have been in the. water 35 minutes. Time after time men came jjongside and hung on for a few minutes and then disappeared for the last time. "Lots of fellows jumped, but I saw two men miss the deck of the rescue ship and fall be-tween the two vesse's. They sank."

RISKS RUN BY RED CROSS I SHIPS. GERMAN CALLOUSNESS. I The Times Naval Correspondent writes: The sinking of the "-A,iigla" is the first case since the" ar began in which a hospital ship carrying wounded has been sunk. This fact is testimoHY to a wonderful achievement, which will be brought home to the minds of every one by the catastrophe announced yesterday. After the lirst thrill of horror at the fate of those who were lying helpless in the vessel when she was struck, there will come a deeper sense of grati- tude to the Navy for the marvellous manner in which it has afforded protection during the hundreds of voyages which have been made by tne hospital ships since the war broke out.
There will be no alterations in the running of the Cambrian Railway Company s trains for December, and the time tables dated October, 1915, will remain in force.

Mr H. R. Williams, Poor law inspector, in- formed the Abervstwyth Guardians, on Monday, that on Friday night last there were only 200 vagrants in the whole of Wales, and these, he declared, were the scum of the earth. On the same night last year there were 700

It is argued by those who think that clergy should be allowed to go as combatants that "the Catholic Church" sanctions the pro- posal. But "the Catholic Church" does no- thing of the kind. The immemorable usage, with but very few exceptions, has been against the clergy acting as combatants. But, it is asked, "What of France?" In reply it is enough to point out that the application of conscription to the French clergy came after the disestablishment of the Church, and was the outcome of a desire to damage not only the Church in France, but Christianity itaelf. This point is well brought out in a letter to the Yorkshire Post from the Rev. C. H. Maggs, who also says that "the course of the unification of Italy led there to the belief that the hostility of the Papacy could only be counteracted by similar measures. In each case Teglisa, c'æ't l'ennemi' expresses the motive. In each case the conscription of the clergy was an act of persecution intended t.o weaken the efficiency of the Church, We gra-vely suspect that it is the desire to weaken the efficiency of the Church" that is at the bottom of Nonconformist newspaper criticism of the Archbishop s letter to Lord Derby.
