There were seven of the bodies of the V" A papa" victims brought to Bangor, (1 these two were taken away by their friends, the other five being interred at Glanadda. The names, of the latter were Mrs Ida Mabel Johnson, wife of Mr Johnson, A Sierra Leone Government offi- cial; Ihornaa Jennings, a waiter on the "Apapa;" Harold Hunting, a- West Afri- can trader; and two coloured men," of Upper Warwick-street, Liverpool, ifre- men, named John Thomas and Isaac Pembroke- Members of the congregation of St. Mary's Church undertook to place flowers on the graves of the "Apapa" victims. Flags were lfown- from the Colleges and other prominent buildings during the day. Contrary to previous years, there was no procession on Sunday in commemora- tion ot Empire Day, but the local Boy Scouts and the Railway Institute Boys Brigade attended the service at the Cathe- dral on Sunday morning. 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.
