"TIPYN 0 BOB PETH." fWg DO NOT XBOB«lSVftICY IDF-TTFPY OCTRSBIiVE 5 WITS THa: OPINIONS OF OUR OORRESPONDENr THERE is an element of undoubted hardship in the treatment of the late tenant of Sarphle Farm, Llanarmon, but who is precisely responsible for this it is not very easy to say. It scarcely needs the assurance of Col. Cornwallis West to convince his many admirers in Denbighshire- and nowhere is the Lord Lieutenant more de- servedly popular than in his own County-that no tittle of blame can reasonably be attached to him; on the contrary he expresses the deepest sympathy with the outgoing tenant, in whose family Sarphle Farm has been for many genera- tions, and who is compelled to quit without any compensation. We require this farm!" say the County Council to Col. Cornwallis West, for the pur- poses of the Small Holding's Act. Powers have been conferred upon us by Parliament under which we can compel you to grant us a lease upon it." Under these conditions, how- ever distasteful it may be to him to do so, the landlord has no option but to give his old tenant notice and it is certainly very unfair to describe this as an eviction by the Landlord, because, somehow or other, the word eviction leaves a very nasty flavour behind when applied in this connection. The County Council are obviously within their powers in acting as they have done and although it may be correct to describe Mr. Jones as a victim of the Small Holding's Act— and, somehow or other, every recent legislative arteasure appears to demand a victim—surely some provision should be made for reasonable payment for disturbances in cases of the kind. Is it not possible for the tenant to secure compensation under the Agricultural Holding's Act? I note that the Arbitrator is asked to state a case on the point, and the sooner it is heard the letter for if, as we are assured, all Law is the epitome of common sense, some provision must be made for adequate compensation, it cannot be possible that Liberal legislators contemplate per- petrating a flagrant injustice to precisely that class whose interests they continually profess to have so close at heart. Otherwise, well may Mr. Jones remind them of the couplet It's all very well to dissemble your love But why did you kick me downstairs. Meanwhile, all right thinking people join with Col. Cornwallis We t in expressing sympathy with the tenant who has been so harshly and unfairly treated. There is a somewhat stale flavonr about a communication which reaches me from Rhos and in which the writer states that a lady visitor at Llangollen, the other day, sent an order for a shoulder of lamb to a butcher who had "done her well" during previous visits. She was sur- prised and startled to receive the following reply: Dear Mum,—I am sorry I have not killed myself this week, but you can have a leg off Mr. X strike oat the name of the local butcher whose leg is to be "pulled," and remind my Rhos friend that the anecdote has been printed before in this column. We are by way of being authorities upon head- gear in Denbighshire. Our Urban Council set the ball rolling by the publication of a ukase, the result of which is the disappearance of the Cabby's Cap. Now the Standing Joint Com- mittee are having a shot in the same direction and, at their meeting the other evening, a ques- tion arose as to the light helmets which are to be supplied to the police for summer wear. Mr. Jelf Petit said he hoped they would not be on the Merionethshire pattern. He saw a con, stable in that county with a hat that he would not put on a scarecrow. Where is this kind of thing going to end? The Governors of the Llangollen County Scbool have elected the Rev. J. L. Jones as their Chairman and Mr. W. B. Roberts, M.A., as their vice-Chaiiman. Upon quitting the Chair Mr. James Clarke, our veteran educationist, made a stirring speech. Nothing, he told us, is so hopeful for the future of higher education in Wales as to witm ss the "fine flowers of Oxford culture," of which Mr, Roberts, who works so hard to stimulate prcgress at Bangor University, is so typical an example, taking part in its advance- ment. In the absence of the Rev. J. L. Jones- one of the most faithful Governors—Mr. Roberts took the Chair amid cheers. Llangollen sustains a severe loss by the re- moval of Mr. Robert Smith from the "Jenny Jones" to Oswestry. "Bob" did such splendid work in connection with the Llangollen BrassBand Contest, and was always so ready to give prac- tical assistance and advice to every musical ven- ture started in the town, that one wonders what we shall do without him. "We shall meet but we shall miss him might be the test" when next year's contest is organised. By the way I have just received a balance shpet of this year's -event.. Receipts amounted to 157 and they in- cluded X35 subscriptions and Y,9 18s. taken at the Pavilion. The expenditure includes Y-34 given in prizes and there is no balance on either side—a triumph of good financing and excellent management. It's not a far cry from Llangollen to Oswestry, and it is good to know that, so far as Mr. Smith's services are concerned, it is only necessary to ask in order to receive. Adam has had a long wait; but in America- where you can't keep a good man down-he is accorded recognition at last. A monument to his distinguished services has been unveiled by Mr. John P. Brady, of Baltimore, at his country home, Gardenville. It bears the inscription, *1 To the memory of Adam, the First Man." The Corwen Board of Guardians act with con- siderable wisdom when they hesitate to fall in with the suggestion of the Merionethshire Standing Joint Committee to permit their Work- house to be nominated as a place of detention under the Children's Act. It will certainly be contrary to the spirit of the Poor Law System to convert these establishments into Reformatories. Talk about the pauper taint, what is that to the criminal taint which must necessarily be intro- duced, and from which the young inmates must suffer by contact with youthful offenders? By the way I note that amongst the rules issued by the Home Office for the treatment of children sent to places of detentiou is one limiting their punishment to— 1. Loss of recreation. 2. Reduction in quality or quantity of foid, but they must not be deprived of two meals in succes- sion, and must in any case get bread and water or gruel. 3. Confinement (but never more than two days, and under fourteen one day) in a light room or cell. 4. Moderate personal correction. A girl's hair must not be cut except for hygienic reasons. These regulations should be of interest to the Select Committee appointed by the Corwen ..Board.. Friday, August 13th," is a date which every agriculturalist should mark with indelible ink in his diary of forthcoming events for, on that date, the fifth annual show under the auspices of the Llangollen and District Agricultural. Dog and Poultry Society will be held. Facts to bear carefully in mind are that entries close in the Agricultural Section on Saturday, July 31st; and in the Dog and Poultry Section on Friday, August 6th. The sooner inten iing exhibitors communicate with Messrs. Edwards and Jackson, Secretaries, Berwyn-street, the better. The Popular Summer Concerts made a very promising beginning on Monday when an excellent programme of music was gone through. Mr. W. B. Roberts—who has done so much at the Urban Council and elsewhere to pnsh the cause of popular entertainments at Lhngollen- made an ideal chairman the Llangollen Male Voice Choir—under the able conductorship of Mr. C. Morton Bailey-sang splendidly; Miss Harriett Egan (soprano) of Cefu and Mr. Poweli E Iwards (baritone) of Rhos, a prize winner at the London and Llangollen National Eistedd- fodau, were in good voice; Mr. Walter Lettsome did the humorous "business," and did it admirably the Llangollen Town Prize Band were heard to great advantage and Miss Gwladys Humphreys accompanied with marked ability. Succeeding concerts will be increasingly attractive a fact which music-lovers would do well to note. The programme for next Monday's concert will be an exceptional one, Mr. R. G. Williams, the renowned entertainer, from Llan- dudno, being one of the artistes. Writing of music calls to mind the Town Band who are makiog melodious our Saturday ev nings. The following is the programme for to-morrow, and, weather permitting, it will be perf >nned in front of the Town Hall March "Loyal and True, Rayner, Waltz, "Prairie Queen,Greenwood. Barn Dance, Merriment," Bourne. Fantasia Windermere," Rayner. Poika,. "Aurelia," Bourne. March, Present Arms," Pettee. Two rent audit dinners, to which a consider- able amount of interest attaches, were held at Llangollen last evening. At the "Wynnstay Arms Hotel the tenants of Lady Wynn were entertained by Hostess Allen in the customary excellent style and, at The Hand," Mr. J. S. Shaw placed the customary recherche repast before the tenants of the Dinbren Hall Estate. HWFA GLYN. » WELSH M.P.'S GIFT. £ 8,000 COLLEGE HALL FOR ABERYSTWYTH. Welshmen generally will learn with satisfaction that Mr. David Davies, M.P., Plas Dinam, has onca again come to the help of the College of Wales, Aberystwyth, by offering, on behalf of himself, his mother and sisters, to erect and equip a college hall at a cost of £ 8 000 with the view of assisting in the promotion of a scheme for the proper accom- modation of the normal students of the college. The ball will contain accommodation for 50 pro- fessors sitting at a table on a dais at one end of the hall and for 300 students sitting at tables in the remainder of the hall, and will cost approximately £ 8,000. + WELSH TOWN CLERK KILLED. ATTACKED AFTER A VISIT TO CHAPEL. AN IN CUSTODY. The quiet little town of Llanrwst was, on Tues- day morning, put in ferment when it, became known that Mr. Richard Rob^rti Owen, th, town clerk, had succumbed to the effects of an assault. It is alleged that Hugh Lloyd Robert" (Grtacie Vaynol) was parading the town under the influence of drink, and went to Mr Owm's n-g.dence, at Carrington-terraee, and informed Mrs. Owen that, one of her children had laughed at him Ho then crossed the road and waited for the deceased. Mr. Owen, who had been to H-reb Wesleyan Chapel, where he was organist, and where he had been taking part in a prayer meeting, fl" •> ot:d t»boaf- 8 30 p.m., and after speaking with a friend crossed the toad to enter his house. Mrs. Owen ran to mtet him, and caught hold of his arm, and a struggle ensued by the gate Uading to the house, culminating, it is alleged, in the man striking Mr. Owen near the temple with an ash stick he carried. Mr. Owen tottered into the house, but collapsed when he reached the front room and lost conscious- ness. Drs. Jones, Owen and Hill were immediately in attendance, and on examining the deceased found that the blow had brought on paralysis of his right side. The medical men srri the uorsa were in attendance all night, buv Mr. Owen passed away on Tuesday morning. Immediately Roberts struck Mr. Owen a Liver- pool visitor tackled him and took the stick off him. The police shortly after apprehended Roberts and, later in the morning he appeared before Mr. Isgoed Jones and other magistrates, and was charged with wilful murder. Formal evidence having been given the prisoner was remanded. The deceased was a native of Penmachno, and came to Llanrwst in 1880 as assistant clerk to thf late Mr. H. Pierce, clerk to the Guardians, aDd on the retirement of Mr. H. Pierce in 1903 Mr. Owen was appointd to the following positions Clerk of the Llanrwst Urban Council, Lla-rwst Rural District Council, Gerionydd Rural District Council, Bettws-y-coed Urban District Council, Llanrwst Board of Guardians, Clerk to the Assessment Com- mittee, and Superintendant Registrar of Marriages. For many years he also acted aa secretary of the Vale of Conway Agricultural Show. 4 A meeting of the local Liberal Association was held on Wednesday night at Towyn (Merioneth), under the presidency of Mr. W. Prycf Williams for the purpose of selecting a candidate for nomination at the September meeting of the County Liberal Association. Alderman Hadyn Jones was unanimously selected. It was also unanimously decided to congratulate the present member (Sir Osmond Williams) on the recent honour conferred upon him. The question of Sunday golf still continues to agitate Prestatyn and district, and those members of the club opposed to the innovation have sent in a requisition that a general meeting of the club be held to discuss the matter further. Five members have the power to call such a meeting, which is likely to be held next week. The opponents of Sunday golf claim that the new order of things has been brought about by irregular procedure, and that is the ground for their calling a special meet- ing of the whole club. The religious bodies are awaiting the result of this meeting before taking further action. The quarterly meeting of the Rhos Wesleyan circuit, was held at Stryc Isaa on Thursday, when the Rev. T. N. Roberts, Cefn, presided. A dis- cussion took place on the Home Miss.on Fund, and the churches were urged to increase t h ir contrib- utions during the ensuing year. It w s agreed to arrange a musical festival at Cefu Mawr, and a committee was appointed to carry out the details. It was stated that a special effort was being marlf by the Plasbennion Church to wipe off a debt, and the churches were asked to assist. The next meeting was fixed for Rhos for October 7. Later tea was served byMeadames Davies, Williams and Foulkes, Rhos.

To the Editor of the "-Llangollen Advertiser" Sir,-The way hotel-keepers are treated in Wales —and England, too, for that matter-ought to make the whde of the trade put their backs up. In several counties the hotel-keepers are being ruined by the action of the police in regard to motor cars. And then we hear people bragging that they have made so much by fining motorists that they can afford to buy stop-watches for the police. A NORTH WALES HOTEL-KEEPER. SMALL HOLDINGS IN DENBIGHSIRE. To the Edit- r of the Llangollen Advertiser." Sir,—I must protest against the manner in which this arbitration case has been reported in your columns. I did not fFef the County Council a lease of Sarphle Farm, at Llanarmon D.C. The County Council selected the farm and then came to me to ratify their selecLiou, which I very reluctantly was obliged to do. I am extremely sorry for the tenant, whose family has been there for years, but I was powerless to ptevent the farm being taken by the County Council. I understand he will have to leave without a penny of compensation.—I am, yours truly, W. CORNWALLIS WEST. DEPOSITING STREET SWEEPINGS. To the Editor of the ■' Llangollen Advertiser." Sir,-In your report of the proceedings of the Llangollen Urban Council, published last week, I notice that the Surveyor informed the Council that arrangements had been made with Mr. Frank Jones and Mr. T. Coward, on payment of a sum not exceeding 6d., and Is., to deposit the sweepings of the roads on their lands. I am given to understand that the reason for this is that complaints have been made to the Council by residents whose houses abut on the Smithfield where the sweepings were usually tipped. Is it fair that anything which is a nuisance behind some houses should be removed and placed in front of houses in another part of the town ? Further, I should like to remind the Council that they have a place on the tip," which is situated at the end of Mr. Coward's field, where it is pro- posed to put the sweepings, and which has a convenient entrance. It would take the man but a few more minutes to reach this tip, thus saving the £2 12s. it is proposed to pay for storing it. Yours truly, A RESIDENT. THE KING'S HIGHWAY. To the Editor of the "Llangollen Advertiser." Sir,—I have read, with feelings of disgust, the letter appearing in last week's paper under the above heading. Beneath a very thinly veiled anonymity, Ratepayer" sees well to attack a licensed victualler because, whilst visitors are obtaining refreshment, they leave their traps outside the house. Does your correspondent expect people to take their vehicles into the house with them or what? If your correspondent feels he has a real grievance why does he not lodge a complaint with the magistrates ? I have spoken with dozens of ratepayers on the matter and they all agree that there is absolutely no obstruction worth mentioning. At the present time there is any amount of grumbling—and with reason-at the quiemess of the season, the slackness of trade, and so foiiii. lis this little-minded carping over imaginary grievances likeiy to improve matters? Are tnere no real encroacoments upon public rights at Llangollen to which attention might be directed ? Aud ie, it too much to expect that people who have had experience 01 the difficulties of making a living and oi hard times should hesitate to suggest placing thirn in the way of others during this season of depression ?—Youra truly, ANOTHER RATEPAYER. [We have taken the liberty of striking out a few ultra-personal remarks from this letter.—Ed, LI. Ad.] TENDERS FOR MACADAM. To the Editor of the "Llangollen Advertiser." Sir,-I was deeply interested in perusing the account in your last issue of the proceedings at the U. D. Council meeting, particulttriy the paragraph dealing with the tenutiis for macadam. As my company did not tender on this occasion, I cannot be charged with writing this letter out of disap- pointment at not being accepted for supplies. My chief reason for writing is in order to cioss swords with the Chairman, who is reported to have said If it is a question of going in for the best then, of comae, we should have to go in for the Clee Hill Stone, which is admitted on all hands to be the best." Now, in answer to this, I have no hesitation in saying that there are quarries produc- ing stone in this part of Wales w ich is tqually as good, if not better, than the much boomed Clee Hill Stone, and this I am in a position to demon- strate and I need only rtler to the stone from our ow qaarti.a,at Llai gy? (g. I presume that the chairman, Mr. T. C. Davies, takes a close and in. telligent interest in the wear and tear of highways. Then I presume he will admit that the two chief features now required in road metal-to meet the extraordinary traffic of motors and heavier vehicles primarily, and incidentally the comfort of pedes. trians-are "durability" and "dustlessness." Mr. Davies will go further and admit that, if a road produces a fair amount of dust in dry weather, it will create an equal amount of mud in wet weather Having got him to this logical point I proceed to prove my contention. Some time ago there ap- peared an article in Surveyor inviting engineers, road authorities and quarry owners to send samples of their road metal to be tested for" dustlessness" by an impartial expert. No charge was to be made for testing, the only stipulation made by the expert being that he should have the right to publish his results in book form and afterwards hand the samples over to the permanent collection of the Jermyn-atreet Museum, London, to be retained for geological and petrological reference. As a result of the invitation, several hundred samples were received by the expert in London, among which were samples of Llangynog and Clee Hill Stone. The results of the tests were published in a five- shilling book, entitled Road-making stones," a copy of which I have before me. In referring to it I find that, while Clee Hill stone gave off 8 10 of dust, Llangynog stone only shed 4'69 of dust. Further comment is superfluous and I think I have made it quite clear that the statement of Mr. T. C. Davies h"s no foundation, but I am generous enough to believe that, when he made the remark, he was unaware that a neighbouring quarry in the "Berwyns" was producing a stone which stands second to none as an ideal road metal. As further proof of this I may add we have recently been accepted for supplies by authorities which have for many years specified Clee Hill and Penmaenmawr stone, in the belief that no other stone could approach these two for quality. I will close with one of our recent testimonials from a main roads inspector Wherever your stone has been exclusively used on our roads, mud-scrapers have been dispensed with."—Faithfully yours, HARRY. WATSOX Managing Director, Berwyn Granite Quarries, Ltd.. July 10th, 1909. Llangynog.
LORD TREVOR'S LONDON ESTATE. THE SALE OF THE YEAR. The Trevor estate in Knightsbridge, London, which practically overlooks Hyde Park, has been sold by Lord Trevor to Mr. James Charlton Hum- phreys. The purchase money approaches £ 200,000. The property, which is sold by Lord Trevor as tenant-for-life under the Settled Land Act, 1882, includes practically everything from Knightsbridge- road to the backs of the houses in Brompton-road. Its frontage to the former thoroughfare is 600 ft., and the average depth is some 700 ft., and it brings Mr. Humphreys's total holding in Knightsbridge, inclusive of the Albert-gate-mansions estate, oppos- ite the barracks, to between five and six acres. There are on the estate more than 200 horses, an old chapel, the Prince's (Ice) Skating Club, and the Knightsbridge Hall, which was the scene of the Japanese Village in 1895. The whole of Trevor- square, with all its old-world charm, is also com- prised in the sale, and it is the purchaser's intention to maintain the square, which has not been taken over by any public anthority, in its present state. The square was formed in 1818, on the site of the mansion of Sir John Trevor, Speaker and Master of tha Rolls, of whom Pennant declared the epitaph in the Chapel of Clifford's-inn to be wise in its brevity, "Sir J. T., M.R.,1717." Besides Trevor Square and Trevor Place, the property includes the houses in Charles-street, Hill-street, Cottage Place, and one side of Lancelot Place, Brompton-road. They are mostly old-fashioned early Victorian houses of good appearance, and are occupied by a superior class of tenants at old rentals ranging from about d650 to d690 per annum. The leases expire at various periods, some 80 falling in next year, while in other cases Mr. Humphreys will not acquire absolute control until nine, twelve, or, in other instrances, twenty-five years hence. In view of its fashionable position, with all the amenities of the Park aLd Rotten Row, its large acreage, and the amount of the purchase money, the transaction (says The Times), may fairly be regarded as the princeipal London sale so far this year. 0 RUABON PETTY SESSIONS. A DEARTH OF MAGISTRATES. These Sessions were fixed for Friday at ten a.m. No magistrates put in an appearance at that hour but after considerable delay a magistrate who was driving through the village to Wrexham—Mr. R. Pritchard, of Cefn-was called to the Court to adjourn the cases. He announced to those who had business at the meeting that the magistrates would not sit until three p.m. At that hour Dr. Law- ton Roberts and Mr. Pritchard took their seats, and heard the cases returned for the day. APPLICATIONS. A protection order to sell at the Buck Inn, Cefn, was granted Mr. John Morris-On the application of Mr Oswald Hughes, an occasional licence to sell at Wynnstay Park, on August Bank Holiday, was granted Mr. W. Spradbury, of Wrexham. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY. P.O. Andrew Roberts summoned Mary E. Jones and Elizi Jones, Owens-street, Rhos, for being drunk and disorderly, and they were each fined 2s 6d. and costs. A SCHOOL CASE. John Roberts, Tainant, Penycae, was summoned at the last court for not sending his child regularly to school, and the ease was adjourned in order that the magistrates might see whether any improve- ment took place, and the case was dismissed on payment of the costs. BOUND OVER. Margaret Green, 7, Off-High-street, Rhos, sum- moned Hannah Evans, Off-High-street, Rhos, for using threats on June 26th.-Both parties were bound over to keep the peace. -0 CURIOUS FIND AT LLANGOLLEN. PATAGONIAN BLOSSOMS IN DEE VALLEY. Writing from the Woodlands, Llangollen, to a contemporary, Mr. Thos. Ruddy says I recently visited a friend, who, for recreation, amuses him- self with a little farming a short way from here. It happened that he was visited the same evening by some of the members of his family, and, as we rambled together to re-visit haunts familiar years ago to all of us, I picked up a small plant bearing little golden flowers, and, as I did so, I said I have never seen this before." On looking about, we found a few more, which, of course, were of much interest to all of us. On examination, I found the plant belonged to the Borage family, but, as I could not find a description of it in any of my botanical works, I concluded that it was a foreign flower, introduced, either with hay or food, for pheasants or poultry. The latter proved to be the correct surmise. A lady of my friend's family said she would take one or two specimens to Dr. H. Drinkwater, of Wrexham, who came to the same conclusions as myself and, to clear up the matter, sent a specimen to Kew for identification. There it was identified as the Narrow-leaved Amsinkia (Amsinkia angustifolia). a native of Chili and Patagonia. In the letter from Kew it was said that two or three specimens had been found at Penzance and at one or two other places in Cornwall. As Dr. Drinkwater and myself were anxious to find out how the plant had found its Tay to Llan- gollen, we met at the home of our mutual friend for a botanical ramble and chat, and, after a welcome tea on a warm afternoon from our friend, he told us that he had from Wrexham, a few years ago, a quantity of siftings from Chilian barley, which he used as poultry food, scattering much of it on a grassy knoll. On going there, we found, much to our pleasure, several plant, which seemed to be well established there. The plant is a biennial or annual in growth and foliage, much like a species of forget-me-not, the whole plant being covered with spreading hairs and bristles. The flowers are very small in terminal clusters, and in height the plant is only nine inches or less. As a stranger, it will be a welcome addition to the many other rarities we have in the neighbourhood of Llangollen.
♦ EXAMINATION FOR BOY CLERKSHIPS. LOCAL SUCCESS. We have to congratulate Mr. David Williams, son of Mr. R. Williams, 6, Cross-lane, on obtaining the very honourable position of 66th out of 705 candidates for Boy Clerkships in the recent Com- petitive Examination, thus gaining one of the 200 appointments. He is a pupil of the Llangollen County School, having entered there three years ago on an Entrance Scholarship from the National School, Llangollen, where he received his Elemeatary Education. He last year passed his Central Welsh Board Junior Certificate Examination in Composition, English Language and Literature, History, Arith- metic, Mathematics, Latin, Chemistry, Drawing, Geography with Distinctions in Arithmetic and Drawing. The subjects taken for the Boy Clerkship Exam- ination were Handwriting and Orthograhy, Arith- metic,Composition, Copying Manuscript, Geography, History, Mathematics (Euclid and Algebra). Mr. Williams was coaohed by correspondence for a month before the Examination by Mr. W. Stewart Thomson, of Aberdeen. We wish Mr. Williams every success in his new career, which will probably be in London. EIFFEL TOWER LEMONADE.
