There was a large congregation. Canon Edmund O. Jones, who preached, said the Empire had been built by men of character, men. of strong personality who thought not of sectional interests, but only 01 the country they loved. there had been, DO doubt, in the history of the Empire discreditable episodes, but gener- ally speaking the empire had grown to its present eminence tnrough the natural byaity and the wiMing service of men who did their duty to the country they loved. Theria was growing up to-day', one feared, a love of sectional interests, class hatred, class jealousy, class domination which, if allowed to continue, would jeopardise this empire, which had taken centuries to build up. England must give God His pIH('&the supreme place. At God was forgotten they stood at the parting of ways, and the British Empire would totter to its fall like great empires of the past. At the close of the service the National Anthem was sung. OBITUARY. I MISS E. B. D. ROBERTS.

The latter firm have intimated that they will give up pos- session at the end of the month. Some 40 men are employed in the yard, and to close it would mean a loss of employment in the town to that extent. It is rumour- ed that the Corporation have been in ne- gotiation with a view to tho sale of the property, and if this were carried 'out the yard would be closed. A special meeting of the Conway Rate- payers' Association was held on r riday night, Mr Ll. Lloyd presiding, to consider the matter. The Mayor and the Town Clerk were present. After a somewhat lively meeting, a resolution WM passed a-?k- ing the Council not to Bell the yard, ??t to retain it M a timber yard.

Earl Stanhope, in the House of Lords, jesterday, moved: "That, iti view of the allegations made both in public and pri- vately against Miss Violet Douglas pen- nant, this Hou«e is of opinion that. a judi- cial inquiry should be held forthwith to examine the circumstances leading to her dismissal from the Royal Air Force. He said the matter had aroused a great deal of interest. tie could not concei ve why the Government objected to an inquiry into the case, Tite only charge he would make against them was that n pledge had been given that an inquiry should !>> held un- aor certain conditions, but this pledge had not been fulfilled- He did not think thtit conditions should have "been laid down. Coming to the question of the dismissal, he said that the Government had just issued a White Paper bearing upon the matter. He complained that there had been no time to consider this document. It was hardly surprising that afier what had taken place rumours were beginning to spread muking attacks against Miss Pennant. For all these reasons lie asked for the support of the House for his nwt ion that a judicial inquiry should be held to inquire into all the circumstances surrounding this extraordinary c-u-e. Lord Beresford supported the motion for the reason that his own case had bee'i very similar OFFICIAL STORY OF TIllE CASE. The Marquess of Londonderry (member of Air Council) thought the controve^-y was based on an imperfect knowledge ef the case, He repudiated every allegation made in regard to concealment, deception, and corruption. He would be glad to put before the Hou-e the case as the Government siaw it and all the information at his dis- posal. The story was one of a capable in- dividual boimg called upon to undertake a very dififcult tc.sk. She encountered immeiire difficulties and a time oa-me when the Secretary of State decided that in the interest of the Air Force a change •jhould lie itia,,Ie. 1 h.. real point in this ca-fe was whether th('r should be a judi- cial inquiry. That was a que;tion affect- ing the jurisdiction of the Secretary of State, and such an inquiry would f-ug- gcot that the S(-(ret.irv of S-tate wis either a man actuated by corrupt influ- ences, or a man who by iutelectua.1 in- capacity was not fit for hi3 position. But neither of th?:e charges could be pressed. It was obvious from the correspondence that Lord Weir was particularly anxious that Miss Douglas Pennant should make 1er position a success. It was common ground that the organisation of the Wo- men's Air Force left a great deal to be desired, and she was a«ked to come in in order that the difficulties might, be overcome. When some t'.nic aftc;w.icti Sir A. Geddcs, who was responsible for recruiting for the Force, announced that the disorganisation of the Air Force was such that ne could no longer allocate women to it, Lord Weir decided to take the course he did, and appointed some- one eLe to :\lic3 Doujlas Jfennant's posi- tion. Affairs bejan to mend themseLves from that inonm.i. tor who supported Miss Douglas Pennant to claim tnat she laid the foundations for the improvement, but the position was tha.t owing to the .tate of affairs in tie country the Secretary of State had to mako up hi? mind and come to a decision very rapidly. He felt that for the effici- ency of the Service it would be better for someone eh.! to take Miss Douglas Pennant's place. There was no blmie attributed to her. He had studied the correspondence now in t.ieir Lordship'a hands very carefully, and had consulted many persons who were acquainted with the circumstances of the case, and the conclusion he had arrived at was that an inquiry of that kind asked for was abso- lutely contrary to the public service. No doubt Miss Douglas Pennant had laid the foundation for the improvement "hich had taken place "in the Force, but it was held that this lady had not the qualities necessary for the post she occupied, and the Secretary of State, who had to make up his mind and act at once, had taken tie bbep which seemed to him to be hh duty to take. Lord Buükmaster (L) eaid that anyone who had read the correspondence and who ha.d listened to the discuss ion would agre-o that there was a very grave case for an inquiry, and that the Government could not in common justice be allowed to let the matter stop where it was. The Earl of Donoughmoro (U) sujpport- ed fcae motion for a reason which had not t yet been advanced. He had noticed in the papers that extreme charges had been made by Mian Douglas Pennant agiaii:st other persons who should, in hi3 opinion, have an opportunity of answering them. LUlU) CHANCELLOR'S OPPOSITION. Tth Lord Chancellor said their Lord- thips siiouid bear in mind what this re- solution might involve if it was applied generally. How many generals in the course ot the war had been summarily removed from their commands ivithoin inquiryThe number was almost in the region of hundred* and their who:' caieers "ere ruined. Was it to be sup- posed that not one of them felt that he should have an inquirySuch inquiry was refused. He was of opinion that the war could not have been carried on with- out such removals, and if demands for inquiries had been conceded the Govern- ment would be spending the next two or three years in conducting inquiries. The plain truth was that- this lady was diverted from one branch of the public service to another. Lord Weir formed a conclusion- which over and over again commanding officers were dri ven tofoi-iii, and Miss Douglas Pennant was dismissed. Was. it to be uggestedthat the tittle- tattle contained in her letters, which made up her case for an inquiry, should beset before a judicial tribunal? No doubt there Was some feeling in Wales on this case, but it was not surprising when they read the report of the Bangor meeting iti the iVcrth U"a'es U/trQniclf! ol a speech of the Bishop of tet. Asaph, The meet- t A5;t p li. ing was informed that this iady was re- moved from the Royal Air Service be- cause she exposed the immorality of some of the officers. It was no wonder that there was excitement in Wales. Ihis lady had written three extraordinarily long letters, and in them she had never inserted that particular charge. She might be sensitive herself, but s he was not so when dealing with others. He had made inquiries to see how many ofh- cers, male and female, Were ius.-ociated with her in her position, and the pro- portion of those who were supposed to have abstained from this conspiracy was extraordinarily small. There was hardly one who was not alleged to have done something, from Sir A. Geddes down- wards. She alleged that Sir A. Geddes in order to obtain her appointment for his own sister brought. pressure to bear to secure her dismissal. One of the avenues through which he would not allow anyone to secure an inquiry was the making of reckless charges against per- sons in high positions without adducing one syllable of evidence. The allegations Miss Douglas Pennant made were shock- ing and reckless He did not hope or expect that their Lordships would accept any ad vice from him. They would go their own way (laughter). The Bishop of Bangor said he thought there ought to be an inquiry, and that the Lord Chancellor's speech was only designed to turn them from the main I)oilit. I The Marquesa of Salisbury (U.) con- sidered the speech of the Lord Chan- cellor more that of an advocate. If this lady had made unfounded charges by all means let them be repudiated. One thing which made him vote for the

motion was that Lord Weir, who was the only member of the House who could give them at first hand, was not in his Clace to defend hi? administration, and he had a]&) been a'bsent oiiithe last oœR-' t sion on which the subject was debated. I MOTION CARRIED. I The Houeo divided; I For the Motion 69 Against 20 Majority for 49 The motion was carried. I GENERAL SEELY'S REPLY IN THE I COMMONS. In the House of Commons, yesterday,' General Seely, in reply to Sir R. Thomas, said that a communication from ivuss Douglas Pennant, dated May 3rd, had been received and an answer had been sent. In the view o the Secretary for War no case for a public inquiry had been made out. He had informed Miss Douglas Pen nant that he was prepared to publish the papers if the House desired it, and he had asked what her wishes were. He had re- oeived no reply to his question, and, in view of the debate which would take placa in the House of Lords, he had decided to lay the papers on the table at once. Sir R. Thomas asked whether the right hon. gentleman was aware that a commit- tee of both lllouses had been sitting to consider Miss Douglas Pennant's state- ment, with corroborative evidence; that the committee had come to the unanimous conclusion that a prima facie case had bee1 established; and, under these circum- stances, would the right hon. gentleman appoint a committee of that Houso to de- cide whether a prima facie case had been established or not, and take the responsi- bility himself. General Seely said he would communi- cate the views of his hon. friend to Mr Churohill, who is dealing personally with this matter.
