I DISTRICT COUNCILS. I ELLESMERE PORT. Mr. W. Stockton presided over a niretm;* on Monday ovening, there being also preseus; iUv M S. H. Pricp (rice-chairman), C. \\lutritlse, J. D. Dutton, E. Williams, W. Breekon, W. Wynne, 11. Simpson, Tlionias Jones a-nd J. H. Lloyd, D. Bunting (clerk) and J. M. Hudson (surveyor). A number of letters were read, the chief being from Mr. Oaldecutt re the Electricity Bill, in which he stated that the Council's contribution to the expenses would be E6 18s. 4d. I SHIP CANAL SCHEME I Another letter was lead from Mr. Churton, m I reply to one received from the Manchester Ship Canal olicitor, asking th Council's cttitude towards their Bill now being promoted in con- nection with their seeking for powers to deepen the water in the canal by two feet. According to a tesolution passed at a previous meeting, no opposition would be offered, if the Canal Company would sign an agreement protecting the rate- payers' interests. A full and complete agreement had been drawn up, but to it the canal authorities had not replied, and. to give the Council a loci is standi to oppose if need be in the futures Mr. Churton wrote suggesting that the Council should inform the directors that they intended to oppose the scheme I ROAD ENCROACHMENTS. A lengthy discussion arose on a resolution moved by Mr. Whitridge—"That this Council consider what further steps be taken to protect and preserve the rights of the public against encroachment, in this instance the land in ^rrowe-lane railed in by Al r. Norman." After giving an epitome of the case. Mr Whitridge moved that a committee be appointed and ¡i¡..1;. 2\h. Norman to meet it and discuss the matter. He preferred the olive branch to the sword, and the matter could not rest at this point.—Mr. Wynne agreed with the proposer, and seconded the resolution. The scope of the committee's work would be to make an exchange if possible.—Mr. Stockton was aware the late case at the assizes had settled nothing. It had not given Mr. Norman a title to the land. Personally, he preferred calling a meeting of he ratepayers, and with them discussing the matter and acting on their instructions.—Mr. Breekon agreed with the chairman, and thought the closing of the road at the top of Merseyton-road also needed venti- lating.—Eventually the Council appointed the Roads Committee !o meet Mr. Norman.Th. Surveyor reported that certain parts of the hign road were not in a satisfactory conditicn. Messrs. Holmes nd King had not put their pipe track opening into good order. The Council asked the clerk to write them.—The eoHector reported ?L )- he had during the past month collected £ 4-15 4s. 2d., and paid over that amount to the treasurer. CONNAH'S QUAY URBAN. The monthly meeting was held last week, the chairman (Mr. W. H. L'ovd) presiding — The medical officer's report shewed that during- Novem- bcr thore were five deaths and threc- births. The district was free of zymotic disease. THE NIGIITSOIL CONTRACT. I The Iu^p -ctor reported that he had engaged t"-int and manual labour to iciiio-ve the nightsoil and it would be necessary to carry out the work for at least tnre-3 weeks before the district would be clear.—A letter was read from the contractor. Mr. T. Jonee, aeking for an interview with the Council aleo a lotk' from the contractor e solici- tors, Messrs. Bromley, Jones and Co., fitat,iig that no complaint had previously been addressed to their client, who would piooeed to carry out the contract- with the Council and who would expect tile Council to adhere thereto.—Tho Inspector re- poited that the contractor had not carried out ti.o terms of hie contract, and the work was done 1 in a most unsatisfactory manner. The contractor had an interview- with the Health Committee, and gv-ve an explanation, but the Council approved of the action of the inspector, and directed him to continue the employment of other men and carts until the inspector was satisfied the district was thoroughly cleansod. RIVERSIDE RIGHT-OF ROAD. A letter was read from Mr. S. Smith, olerk to tho Dee Conservancy Board, enclosing copy reeo tuton passed at a meeting of the Doc Con&cr- vancy Board and requesting that the same m.ght bo brought bofore and have due consideration of the Council. The resolution was as follows:- "Resolved, that it being considered that the public rights-of-road over the land at Column's Quay, occupied by Messrs. Ferguson and Baiid as or in oonnaction with their shipyard, have boon and aie being infringed, the clerk do cail the attention of the public authorities (viz., the Flintshire. County Council, the Connah's Quay Urban Ditri t Coun- eJ, and the Hoiywe.ll Rural District Council) tireroto and to tJia provisions contained in section 290 of the Chester and Holyhead Railway Act, 1844 (7 and 8 Yie., Cap 65), a copy of which section is enclosed, and exptess the view of this Board that the matter should be dealt with by such of the public authorities oonoerned as are guardians of the public interest of the diBtnct." The following is a copy of the section ref&ired to: "And be it enacted, that the several embankments to be made across the baach in the townships of Golftyn, Kielsteiton and Leadbrook. amounting to a length of abo-ut 3,000 yards, shall, and tiie Bame are hereby required to, be so constructed as to admit of a common road of not less than 20 feet Wide in every part to be made on the river- Bide of the tiaid railway, but sop a; at.-d from it by a proper fence and to be connected w:th the present turnpike road whioh now runs along the coast by the bridge over the said railway in the cutting, and also with the shore by easy slipways, at in- tervals of not exceeding 500 yards the said em- bankments having their seaward Blope made fivo to one, and the soa slope to be p .ved with stone.' —It was resolved that the clerk communicate with tho several authorities mentioned in Mr. Smith's letter and obtain tieir views upon the matter. ) THE COUNCIL'S FINANCES. j A letter trom trio treasurer (Mr. J. r rater), Lloyd s Bank, Connah'e Quay, was read, stating that he understood it was definitely arranged a year or so ago that the Council would pay a salary to tho treasurer in lieu of the interest upon the sums advanced to them from time to time. The arrangement was held in abeyance at the time. as it Wa3 expected that the. Council would shortly have funds in hand, but their expectations had not been lvalised yet, and the present state of the account did not apparently point to any ea:ly real.sarion. and asking whether under these cir- cumstances it would be uru-ea<ion.ible for the Council to give effect to the resolution —After discussion it was resolved, on the motion of Mr. E. Roberts, seconded by Mr. W. H. Lloyd, that a statement of account be furnished by the bank shewing the total habihti<'s of the Council up to I date, and that the matter be further considc?d at the next meeting of the Finance Committee. .APPOINTMENT OF SCHOOL MANAGERS. A communnation was read from tae clerk to the County Council as to tho appointment of mana- gers for SL Mark's National Schools and the Custom House-lane Board Schools.-Mr. J. W. Conned, as head teacher of St. Mark's Schools, said it being an open question as to whether or not he shouid vote, he proposed to take no part in the proposing, seconding or voting.—Mr. T. J. Reney was appointed manager for St. Mark's Schools, on the proposition of Mr. E. Blane, <-econcied by the Chairman; and Mr. J. T. I Humphreys and Mr. W. II. Lloyd for tho Custom I Housc?a.n? Board School?,, on the proposition of Mr. T. J. Rtn<y, ?cond:?d by Mr. E. Bial(?. PROPOSED EXTENSION OF BOUNDARIES. I this matter was again under consideration, and a plan 6howmg the proposed extension, prepared by Mr. was subziiitte,(].-()ii tiio proposition of Mr. W. 11. Lloyd, ascended by Mr. E. Blane, it was resolved tha.t Messrs. J. H. Davies and Soil be instructed. to prepare a plaii of the extended area on a 12 or 13 inch scale. MISCELLANEOUS. I A letter was read from Mr. Cartwright, general manager of the Wrexham, Mold and (Jon- nalt's Quay Railway. Wrexham stating that a drain to carry off the rainfall surface water runs through Messrs. (Joppai lc's premises under the tiu-ough Mfsssr. Coppa' k s ￼ un d er t h ￼ L. and N.-W. Railway and the W.M. and CQ. Railway Cos.' property to the dock, having its outlet in the river. Mr. Cartwright had been in formed that the Council, iti carrying out some new sewerage oulvorts, had connected one with the drain, and if sewage was to pass through tho latter it must mean, especially in hot weather, not only serious nuisance to the men employed on vessels using the dock, but also must be most, in- jurious to their health, the employes of the com- pany and others using the piemises. If he had not been misinformed, in the event of sewage pass- iug into tho drain he feared thp railway company would be compelled to take steps for the abate- ment of the iitilsaiice,It was resolved that the (1 rk be instructed to inform Mr. Cartwright that this Council were not passing any sewage into the chain in question. A letter was Had from Mr. Cartwright, W.M. and C.Q Railway Company, in reply to the letter addressed to him by the elerk, in which Mr. Cart wriglit stated he quite undeistood the River Dec- Fishery Board objecting to sewage draining into the river, but obviouslv the railway company had nothing whatever to do with the origin of Con nah p> Quay sewage. If the culvert referred to had been blocked up it could not have taken the recent heavy rains and the water got away freely, and lie did not think ther, was any cause for complaint. Ihe attention of the Permanent Way people would however, be called to the matter.— It wa-- resolved that the request contained in the clerk's letter of the 27th ult. be adhered to. and that Mr. Caitwriciit be written to accordingly. The Cleik reported that the County Council had confirmed the recommendation of the No. 2 Com mittee of the Main Roads Committee to iay pipef, in Fisherman's-road, also to put one-half of the road in repair. Mr. E. Blane railed the attention of the Council to the unsatisfactory condition of the private streets in the urban district, pointing out that the Council had adopted the Private Street Works Act, 1892. He moved that the inspector be in sinicied to report thel con to the Highway Com- mittee.—Mr. W. II. Lloyd seconded, and it was resolved accordingly. Messrs. H. Hughes E. Blane and J. T. Hum- phreys were appointed a sub-committee to m?et sub-committee appointed by the County Conner with reference to the proposed water cart. control of the main roads and Plas Bellin-Iane. 1\1r- W. E. Hughes was reappointed inspector or nuisances for the period of twelve months. Plans of new buildings for Messrs Bradleys. Chester, were Ijofore the Health Committee, and iefi-ired to i! sub-committee,—Mr. T. J. Renry, as chairman of the subcommittee. reported that owing to the old drain's not being shewn and theve be;ng no intimation as to what. was intended to be done with it, the matter was referred to the surveyor to communicate with the architects, the plans to be again brought before the Health Com- mittee. A letter was read from the Connah's Quay Gas and Water Company with reference to the laying of gas man., in Cestrian-street and Primrose Hill -fating that as there was no prospect of any pri- vate consumption of gas in these streets it would he a dead loss to the company to lay mains for the- small number of lamps required but as the directors folt tlic-, streets should be lighted the coniTi"ay wore willing to lay the mams and supply the s.ie on condition that the Council would open and e.o.-e the ground. A report of the stir-voyor was submitted as to premises belonging to Mr. F. E.

By Mr. Smith: The two gentlemen stood at the door. Witness did hot expect sixpence, but he siiut his hand when he let tno money. \l^augh- j t-ji-j He did not know that it was a. wrong tiling to take tho sixpence, and did not tnank Mr. uough. Witness told a man tnat he hau levie.ved sixpence from Mr. Geügü, but, he dia not know I who it was. Witness knew Mr. W aisn, but clenied that he tiad had any Ireo drink there, -tie had to pay for what drink he had, and lie wouid tiwear j thai he was not, given a iree drink lor giving evi- dence. Henry Foxhall, iron worker, 8, Refuge-square, Baid on the morning of November 30 he went to Mi. Cough's committee-room, and he received 6d. irom tho defendant 'ihe latter said, "Vou't for- get who to vote for," and witness replied, "Ail right; ill make it right. in reply to Mr. Smith, witness said Mr. Gough put 6d. in his hand as ho was standing by We tabie, but he did not know whether the others in til", room saw him give tho money. They oouid not sck, if they turned their heads. (Laughter.) Witness was asked who lie voted for, and he said he had voted for Gough. The men to whom he was talking said. "Then I leukon. you got a tan- ner," and witness replied tnat he nad. He first made a written statement at the Liberal Ciub aUoyt a week after Ule election. He had previ- I ously been in the Imperial Hotel, where lIe met t Air. Owen Toole and Mr. Walsh. He had a drink with Air. Waish at the Imperial, and also at the Liberal Club. Witness went to a room at Cairo- street on Saturday night, and there saw Air. Gough, Mr. Baker and HOW other geuuemen. He was in a nice state, and was not sober. He got tiie drink at Air. Baker e expense, and ne promised him a good feed, but witness did not get it. In tie pi .sence of those people he did say he did not re- ceive sixpence, and tnat he did not know Mr. Gough. It was a lie, but the reason witness said 60 was because they thought they had got him on tiie hop. Witness refused to sign a paper on baturday night, and he told the lie because he thought he should get some more drink. Jane. Ivirkham. widow, 92, Catnerine-street. said on November 30 she went to vote. Air. Gough gave her two threepenny bits after she had voted. By Mr. Smith: Two women named Kenwright ana Fears went with her to vote.. ltness (in a, loud voioa, and pointing to the. women): There they are, sitting like two fools. (Loud laughter.) She met a policeman and another man afterwards. Mr. Smith: You were having a. tete-a-tete. (Laughter.) Witness: Yes, that's all I had. (Loud laugh- ter.) Alarv Ward, widow, living in Refuge-square, said on November 28 Air. Gough and Air. Peers WOilt to her house and asked for her vote. She said, "No I'll vote for Mr. Toole." Defendant then put bd. into her hand, but site gave it him back and told him to clear off, as sho was not going to sell her vote for 6d. Superintendent Monaghan deposed to serving the summonses, and the case for the prosecution closed. THE DEFENCE. Air. F. E. Smith, for the defence, said he was there confidently to submit to the bench, after they had heard his witnesses, that there was no prima facie case which would justify them in send- ing the defendant to the assizes. It was not often that municipal zeal for purity in elections took the particular form it did that morning. He agreed Uhat it was extremely desirable that bribery oi corrupt practices should be put down, and the fact that the amount of money was small made no difference. He asked them to make the inference that as the party which was defeated at the elec- tion had not taken the ordinary course of bringing an election petition instead of coming before the police court and bringing four charges buttressed by the class of witnesses produced, it appeared an unfortunate example of political malice and spite of the, lowest, form. Mr. Gough wouid deny all of tho acts alleged to have been committed by him. Since the election Mr. Toole had been to see Mr Gough to try to induce him to resign his seat with a. view that these proceedings might be stopped Samuel Gough. the defendant said he was a Non-Trading candidate in the recent bye-election in Bewsey Ward. He had not given any of the witnesses or any other voter any money. Rogers told him four or five times that he was going to vote for Toole. Witness had not shaken haaids vith Rogers, and to his knowledge did not touch his hand He did not give him sixpence, neither did he give anything to the other witnesses. In cross-examination defendant said he had been told that the other side, had paid JE20 to a public- house. William WToodcock. letter cutter, 33. Price- st-reot, said he was with Mr. Gough at the houses of Ward aaid Rogers. He never saw any money ;iven to them, and if there had been he would have seen it. Further evidence having been given by several witnesses, the magistrates decided that a prima f cie case had cn made out., and committed the defendant to the Liverpool Assizes for trial. Bail was allowed, himself in E200 and one surctv of 00.

At West London, on Tuesday, Mar- garet Jano Kenny, 30. was committed for trial charged with bigamy. Ac- cused's first husband was a sailor who was ship- wrecked on a voyage to Russia. It was stated that believing he was drowned accused married again. When the first husband returned home. he was unable to find his wife, and also married again. Being charged with bigamy, he received nominal sentence of three days imprisonment. He after- wards lived happily with accused. An oxtraoidiiiary case of death through gluttony was investigated at. Bediington, Northumberland on Monday. A young miner named Robert Ernest. Stephenson, who was present at a social club supper on Boxing Night, had four plates of pork and what remained on. tke dish besides vege- tables. He was afterward-s unable to stand, and had to be led away from the table. His body was found in an outhouse on Sunday morning. The coroner's jury found that death was due to syn- cope, induced by over-eating and drinking. Late on Saturday night, or early on Sunday morning, a thief or thieves broke through the base- ) ment. window into the buildings of the University College, Aberystwyth, and stole upwards of 100 valuable Engl.sh and other coins from the glass case in which they were on view in the quadiangle. The collection included a complete set of Jubilee coins, coins lovering the period from King John to William IV., United States silver coins. Con- tinentat coins a silver medal commemorative, of the battle of Waterloo, and specimens of Maundy I money. Ihe nineftenth annual conference of the Incor-\ porate So iety of Mu?cia.ns w"s opened by th? Lord Provost at Glasgow Titc?sday. a cordial welcome being given. The secretary reported that there are. 2.149 members on the roll. and 21 sections holding periodical meetings in various parts of the country. Dr. Frederick Owen de- livered an interesting address on the mannerisms of composers, giving many pianoforte illustrations but refrained from extending his criticisms to British composers. Next year's conference is to be held in Alatichester. Tho spectacle of a real shower of gold was seen on Monday afternoon in Lothburv, London, when about half-past three o'clock the capacious bag of a bank messenger, who was accompanied by two gentlemen, suddenly burst, and its contents, I consisting of several hundreds of bright yellow sovereigns, rolled over the footpath and into the gutter. Luckily a police-const able happened to be (lose by, and he at onc-o rushed to the asc-.i-t- ance of the custodians of the gold, and with other policemen who came in answer to his call helped to form a cordon round the gold-covered pave- ment Ultimately they succeeded in gathering together the whole of the scattered wealth. An inqlWJt. was held at Whittie's Farm, Chelms- ford on Tuesday, on the body of Goulder J. Fen- ner, cattle dealer, well known in the Eastern counties who while shooting with his boy on Christmas Eve had his heel blown away by the accidental discharge of a new gun he had obtained on trial for his son. It was shewn that. the gun went off as easily at half as at full cock. Beforo he allowed the wound to be. dressed the father anxiously declared that the boy was not at fault. and had not c-ven been careless, but had carried the gun as instructed, pointing downwards. Tho jury returned a verdict of "Accidental de-ath," adding sympathy with the boy and the family. The southern part of Lincolnshire is again suifenng from a plague of rats. In many parts of the district the hedges and stacks simply swarm with them. and the tracks they have made resemble miniature sheep titu k. The cause is attributed to the excessively wet season which has prevailed. the flooded state of the ditches and drains having driven them from their natural haunts to higher ground, where they have taken possession of corn stacks, potato and mangold graves, and surrounding premises.. Farmers are at their wits' end to know how to deal with them Hundreds have been killed during threshing opera- tions yet they appear as numerous as ever, and successful extermination appears a matter of no email difficulty.

CHESTER EDUCATION COMMlT lEE. The monthly meeting of the Chester Education Commit! was held on Monday afternoon at the Town Hall, Aldeiman H. T. Brown presiding. THE KING'S SCHOOL. IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS. At a. nioetmg of tiie Higher Education Sub- committee the Director reported in answer to questions sent to aU the public and private schools in the city, other toan elementary, the governors of the King's School, in giving information as to whether (1) the equipment ol the scnooi was con- sidered satisfactory, and (2) touch with the Council was desired Ly way of recognition or assistance, had leplied as ioilows :—"The two most conspicuous needs of the school are (1) fur- ther laboratory accommodation and a permanent science master; (2) a permanent modern language master. Assistance is desired. As will be seen from tho copy balance--sheet for the last year, the governors are crippkd foi la, k of funds. Tne governors desire (and suggest that your Council siiouid assist them) to provide additional labora- tory accommodation to satisfy the Board of Educa- tion, and to qualify tor the Boaid s grant under scheme B. The governors have asce-itamed that 1; 400 is the least sum for which tiie piopo&ed alterations required for tlls purpose ca.n be done. The additional ye..riy expendituie for a. perman- cut science master and materials may be estimated at £ 200 to 1;250, aiid towards tins yearly expendi- ture an annual giant from tOle city would be most helpful. The Director informed the committee that he had been requested by the cierk to the governors to accept tins answer as a definite appeal to the loc-at author, tv. it was i.esolved—"That the consideration of the question of aid to tho King's School and of the points raised by the deputation from the governing body of the Cluster School of Scienoe and Art and Technical Day Schools be deferred; and that the director be instructed to prepare and present a report to this sub-committee at. an early meeting upon the question of higher .education within the city and the co-old nation of aU branches of education under the pioweis and duties of the local authority, as oond.tioned in part ii. of tho Educa- tion ALt, 1902." On the motion for the confiimation of th? min ut.e" Mr. R H Lanoeley moved an amendment to the effect that before giv.ng further considera- tion to tiie communication from the governing body of the King s School they be requested to furnish the committee with a fresh statement show- ing (1) the basis upon which the school is estab- lished and conducted; (2) particulars of income on capital account, and the various sources from which fiteii income is derived, together with any consideration and the nature thereof in relation thereto; (3) a full statement as to the accommoda- tion,, numbor of scholarships and conditions at- taching thereto; (4) number of present govenmors and how appointed; and that all receipt of such statement, and w.th the consent of the governing body, the director inspect the school and report to the committee, as to its equipment, teaching staff and general suitability as a secondarv school." He thought there would be many members of the I committeo who had been turning over in their minds their posit on with regard to private and secondary Sc hook He had an idea as to what naiglil possibly be done with the King's School if they were allowed to do it and therefore he had decided upon moving his resolution. He thought befoi e. they did anything, whether it was in the way of furthering the establishment of the King's School as a secondary school or voting any specific- sums to the governors in response to their appeal, they ought to be furnished with the fullest pos- sible information They were dealing with public funds, and should make it a sine qua non that before they did anything in the way of making grants the. representation of the committee on the governing body was in proportion to the help given. Mr. W. Ferguson seconded. Air. Egerton Gilbert failed to see th? slightest object of Mr. Laiiceley's resolution, whatever its merits might be at the present stage. The Chairman suggested that the facts required by Mr. Lane-cloy s motion were easily obtainable, and were within the personal knowledge of many mem bers of the commjtt&e. Those particulars might be made to form an appendix or supple- ment to the report which the director was engaged in preparing. It was in connection with the pre- paration of that report that tho director hoped to get assistance fiom the clerk they proposed to appoint in his department. Mr Lanceley said he was perfectly aware of the resolution of the sub committee instructing the director (Mr. Lovell) to prepare and present a report but he thought the inquiries were to be rather limited in their nature. The Bishop said the governors of the school fur- nished the information as they were asked, and he was sure it would be the greatest pleasure to them to give any further in format on. Ultimately Alr. L-,tneelgv withdrew his amend- ment on the understanding that the information ho sought would be furnished by the director in his report, and on the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Dr. Stoltorfoth, the minutes were confirmed LECTURES TO TEACHERS. I With reference to a proposed course of biological lectures to bo given to the. teachers of elementary schools. Air. J. D. Sicldall askd if the public would be admitted, and if so upon what terms? He hoped they would be admitted, and moved that steps be. tak-ei to ascertain how many seats were required by the teachers and that the scats not used by them should be used by the public at a fee say, of Is. The "Town Clerk (Mr. J. H. Dickson) advised that it would not be right for the committee, in carrying out a general course of lectures, to take money for the purpose. After some further remarks the matter dropped. PROVISION OF SECONDARY SCHOOLS. I The Rev. J. K. Montgomery moved—"That a sub-committee be now appointed to meet a sub- committee of the County Council to consider the desirability of taking joint action with regard to provision of intermediate and secondary schools, and that H.M. inspectors be asked to confer with the joint committees, and that the director be authorised to make the necessary arrangements to give effect to this resolution." He said their first duty was to level-up all the elementary schools in their area to the standard of the best, and then to provide advanced or intermediate schools for pupil teachers and cider scholars continuation classes and technical classes., which were at present housed and taught in the Museum and other places. This was all the more necessary now that the Town Council had resolved to free all the present elementary schools after March. 1905. and to place them ali on a purely elemcntary basis. The establishment of intermediate schools would involve considerable, expense to the rate- payers. Tho County Council, he was told. now eent a large numbor of pupils to the city schools, especially to tho College, Ilunter-street and Wes- leyan Schools, and that authority would no doubt willingly join in the establishment of such second- ary and intermediate schools, and any joint scheme would be. a. mutual convenience and prevent over- lapping or double provision in the building and staffing of schools, and the oc-st would be jointly borne by the county and city. Thus the scheme might be made lighter for the ratepayers in both areas. Dr. Stolterfoth seconded the resolution. The Act contemplated elementary and secondary schools, and they must keep their minds steadily upon that point. From what he had heard, he thought it was quite right that they should have a conference with the county authorities. The city was surrounded by thickly-populated districts which must look to the city to supply their edu- cational needs unices the County Council set to work to build technical schools. From the point of view of economy, he thought it would be well for both authorities to consider the possibility of a joint scheme It was necessary to do this to prevent, overlapping. Professor AlacGunn suggested that the better course would be, before they went into conference with anybody, to make themselves quite familiar with the facts regarding the local situation. He thought tho committee should have the director's report, fiist, and they might then consider the ad- visability of dealing with the quest on. Mr. J. Gooddie Holmes also thought the reso- lution was premature. They ought to know something more about tho subject before they d0Cidsd upml a conference Mr. J. W. Conneil pointed out that thirteen pupil teachers in the county of Flint attended classes in Chester, and thought it was desirable I that thare should be some understanding with the Flintshire County Council as to the <ost incurred thereby. It was not. right that Chester should educate thirteen pupil teachers from Flintshire at its own cost. Mr. G. R. Griffith was also in favour of awaiting I the report of the director on this question before taking any action Ultimately Mr. Montgomery withdrew his motion, and it was agreed to defer the considera- tion of the subject until the director presented his report. THE DIRECTOR'S STAFF. The Financc Sub-comnrtieo were empowered to mak& the appoiDtm?nt of a sea'or clerk in tho education ofHea.
THE STOMACHS DAYS WORK. —_ If any man or woman had to work as hard at the Christmas and New Year holiday period as his or her own stomach has to work, there would be a strike. Little wonder then that the stomach occasionally gets wrong, and most- people at this time of the year find it necessary to take a few of Chas. Forde's bile beans to keep this busy organ up to par. This is a list of what the stomach has to do every day :—Turn several po inds of solid food into a semi-liquid state. Digest that amount, turning it into a form from which it may be made into bone, muscle, or other tissue. Alake its own supply of gastric juice to digest with, 10 to 20 pints per day. Keep up a heat of 100 degrees, notwithstauding all the cold water, ice cream, etc., that is taken. If the stomach gets below that temperature, if it ceases to secrete gastric juice, food decomposes, wind collects, fhtulenee and pain follow. There is loss of appetite headache, sometimes constipation, and other symtoms of digestive disorder. Every day makes it harder for the hard-worked stomach to get back to its proper state, until unless helped it breaks down completely. Chas. Ford's bile beans help it in a purely natural manner. They clean away decomposing matter, gently open the bowels, tone up the secreting glands, and in other ways are most I)e 1 1, Mr. Andrew Kerr, of Great Bedwyn Manor Wilts, says I had indigestion for nearly a year, and my condition was becoming most serious, when I tried bile beans. They cured me completely, and since the n I have not had the faintest trace of indigestion." This great vegetable This great vegel-% b le remedy is obtainable from all chemists and medicine vendors.

I KILLED ON SCAWFELL. I FALL OVER A PRECIPICE. ¡ The accident which oceuried at Scawfell on Monday, September 21, when four tourists were killed while attempting to scale that mountain. has been followed by the death of another tourist while climbing almost at the same place In the case of the four tourists they were roped together. and were attempting to ascend Lords Rake by its stecD face. In the present instance, the unfor- tunate gentleman and his companion were not roped. They had successfully accomplished their climbing, and were descending to the Wastwater Hotel, when one of them, Mr. Alexander Goodall, Clifford House, Keswick. slipped on the, frozen snow, slid for some distance, and then fell over the precipice into Lord s Rake below. Death was instantaneous. The yearly gathering of climbing men at Was- daie ixeau na.s become all institution, and the Christmas and New Year holidays never pass without an assembly there oi men more or less practised in climbing. Un Saturday morning tlw parties dispersed 111 various tracks. One party, consising of Air. A. Goodail, of Keswick, Air. F. iiotteril'l, ol Leeds, Air. M. Williamson, of Preston, and Air. W. L. Benbow, of Harrogate, were climbing in the Scawieli groups. Shortly alter mid-day Air. Botteriil and Air. Goodall, who were both experienced rock climbers, left the others near the Lords Rake to climb the Scawfell Pinnacle. They did not attempt the hazardojs loute which proved fatal to the four tourists in September last, but, after trying a portion of it, climbed by the ascent from the steep ghyll, first liiacle in July. 1388, by Messrs. Simgsby Hastings. E. Hopkuison, and Haskett Smith. Going up the ghyll and by what is known as Slingsby's Chimney of the summit, they climbed very well. There was a very fine sunset, and the climbers went to the Cairn on the summit to view it. They then detoured to make the descent by the Deep Ghvll the rocky rift which splits the pinnacle from ocawfcll. Ordinarily this is a rock climb, bem »■ as its name implies, a deep ghyll with two blocked places to be dealt with in ascending and descend- ing. But, on Saturday, the ghyll was practicallv lnled with snow, and presented to the climbers the appearance of a safe glissade down which with the drag of an alpenstock or ice-axe, an ex- hilarating and safe descent might be made. j,1r Hotterill and Mr. Goodall, wlso had un wired afti-,r the climb, were preparing to descend in that manner. Mr Botterill proposed that he should go first. from the point where they stood, down- wards. there was about 60 feet of snow, ter- imnatmc; in a fringe of loose screes. Mr. Bottcril1 proposed to lead, but Mr. Goodall said he would like to go first as he wanted a little more ex- perience of glissading. They had only one ice-axe. lhis Air. Goodall took, and went down to the screes and over them to the lower edge, where he stopped dead. Immediately afterwards he ap- peared to lose nis balance. He fell on his back and lost his hold of the axe. which he had driven imo the screes, and which, if he could have held to, would have supported him. He was wearino- gloves, and it is supposed these prevented his retaining hold of the shaft. Then, before the affrightc,d gaze of his companion, i he continued to slide di ow- n the slope, first on his back and side anu then turning on his face. head foremost, until lie disappeared from view about 150ft. above the upper pitch, and some 250ft. from the top. From this point his course was over an unbroken ice- fall. some 250ft. further to the base of the deep ghyll debouching on Lords Rake. on the rocks of which he struck, and was instantly killed The other members of the party were on the portion of the crags near the Lords Rake, and had [U.-CU jo neupv ?r. n.hary. of Co!ne, and Mr. iIlicar and Mr. Moritz, of London. The iatter two were preparing for the turn to Wasdale Head when one of them said there was a man coming down the Deep Ghyll. It. was apparent that an accident had happened, and a few moments later the party were standing round the inanimate form .'t Mr. GoodaH. Tlic, ?lac (' hei*(,, the bodv fell is some distance below the erwo.,s which n?ks the site of the death of Professor Marshall. Some of the members of the party immediately left for Wasdale Head to bring assistance, and Air. F. I ayne, of Chesterfield, a: other experienced climber. coming up with rare. he, with Mr. lilliearcl and Mr. ?oritz. prepared to go in search of Mr, HotteriH. who had not yet appeared On seei• ng Mr. Goodall !ose his ice-axe, Mr. Botterii! divined what proved to be the case, and the cause of the accident was the sudden conversion belovo the fringe of screes, of snow. to an ice fall. Having no ice-axe, he turned across the breast of the summit of Scawfell, intending to enter the Lords Rake by its utter extremity, and so accomplish the descent. But the top of the Lords Rake is bv no means easy to find in the broken rocky ground, and, failing to discover it. Mr. Botterill returned to the top of the Deen Ghyll, and set himself the hazardous task of attempting- th descent, whtch had just proved fatal to his com- panion Fortunately, when he reached the scr-es he found there the ice-axe which Mr. Goodall had been unanle to retain. With this he step bv step cut his laborious way down the ice slope to the foot of the ghyll. where he arrived after three hours' exertion and much imminent peril. In the mean- time Mr. Payne, Mr. Tilliea;d, and Mr. Aloritz, the last two of whom had remained with Mr. Goodall while assistance was coming from Wasdale Head, had roped and were attempting, by means of step-cutting in the ice, to make their way up the ghyll to the assistance of Mr. Botterill. This attempt the extreme danger of the task in the growing darkness had just compelled them to re- linquish when Air. Botterill arrived amongst: them at the end of his arduous and dangerous descent. The relief party from Wasdale, including Mr. W hi. ting, of the Wastwater Hotel, and Mr. Winter- bottom and Mr. Harris, of Sheffield, had also come up, and the body of Mr. Goodall being placed rn a stretcher, was taken to the Wastwater Hotel, where the party arri ved shortly after eleven o'clock. The fatal slip had taken place about four o'clock in the afternoon. Mr. Botterill, who, in the face of a terrible shock, seems to have re- tained splendid nerve and courage, although much exhausted by his exertions, was on SLzi-dty well. Mr. Goodall was a reporter and a newspaper corre- spondent.

TIIE CHURCHES. I THE LIVING OF LLANGOLLEN. I The omciai announcement was made a.t Llan- I gollen last week that the Rev. Lewis D. Jenkins, rector of Bala, had accepted the li ving of Llangollen, rendered vacant by the appointment of the Veil. Archdeacon Wvnue Jones to the vicariate of Oswestry. The Llangollen living is considered one of the most important m the Principality, being valued at 1:300. The Rev. L. D. Jenkins removed to Bala six years ago from Penyeae, near Ruabon, where he was immensely popular. DR. BOURNE'S ENTHRONEMENT. CATHOLICS AND THE EDUCATION ACT. A ne entnronemcnt ot the iviost Kev. Dr. Bourne as Archbishop of Westminster took place on Tues- day morning m the new Cathedral at W estminster. Tno ceremony was carried out with stately and impressive rite*. There was a great gathering both of ecclesiastical and lay celebrities of the Catholic Church in England. Among the distin- guished laymen present were the Duke of Norfolk, discount Liandatl", Lord Edmund Talbot, ALP., and Air. William Redmond, M.P. The first part of the ceremony was the reception of the Arch- bishop and the veneration of the Sacred Pallium. After his Grace's arrival, a procession was formed, and proceeded up the nave of the Cathedral, where the enthronement took place with all the gorgeous ceremony incidental to the occasion. After the enthronement, the Provost, canons, Cathedral chaplains and clergy approached and paid homage to the Archbishop, kissing his hands. High Alass followed, and towards its conclusion the Archbishop read a pastoral. In this his Grace explained it was the intention of the Catholic community to extend their existing faciii- ties for the education of ecclesiastical students. They believed the Education Act would be of great service to Catholics, who must he on their guard against the attacks of those loud-voieed persons who. having got a kind of teaching they desired for their own children, would deny facili- ties to the children of others. --u-
