THE FARMERS REVOLT. THE REBECCA EIOTS. By the lie v. J. Lloyd James (Clivydtveiifi-o). CHAPTEIi III. (Continued). If people provoked or opposed him in anything bis tet-tiper would be uncontrol- lable, and he would rot mind taking a knife or a pitchfork with a view to ven- geance. Jacky Davy was the first man to return through Narberth after the chain was broken on that eveutiul occasion. The gateman concluded that he must hav9 forced and broken the chain, so that after he passed he went directly to a magistrate, stated his convictions, and obtained a war- rant for his apprehension, the execution of which was entrusted to a constable. As Jacky Davy was so well known for his great physical strength, two constables were sent after him as soon as arrange- ments could be completed and the law's machinery set going. It took some twelve hours to go from Llanglydwen to Ludchurch, or to Begelly and back, including loading and feeding of horses and driver at Longford. The feed for the horses was left there in going. While the horses had their foed outside, the driver had his lunch of bread and cheese, or bread aDd butter, inaide the public house, with a pint of beer to wash it down. While the refreshening was done at Longford, on this occasion, the law was being set at work iu Narberth, and the constables started with their warrant for Jacky Davy's apprehension. He had left Longford before they arrived there. They hastened up the sttep hiil by Penygraig, and passed the Square and Compass public house on the top. Thay walked briskly by Pwll-yr-Ayrou, now (Jlyrdyrwen Sta- tion, and passed "TL"; vV beaten Sheaf" public house, also Lhe rc-i gafca that led to Yet-hen farmhouse, aud w' "e drawing near Pwll-y-vvhva;d, when they overtook Jacky Davy and his caro and horses. 000 of the constables went on to him as he was walking by his horses, put his hand on his left shoulder, and said he was ap- prehending him for breaking the chain at Narberth gate, and that; he must return with him. The spirit of Jacky Davy, like that of Samson formerly, was stirred up, and, in loss time than it takes to'write, he took bold of the constable by his two shoulders, lifted and put Lim down on the other side of the hedge as easily as if he were lifting a child. Seeing the fate of his fellow officer, and thinking himself equal to the task, the other constable went on and put his hand on the shoulder or this son of Anak, and demanded him to surrender and return with him to N%be!:th. Jacky Davy was not the man to give* in, under the circum- stances, so he took hold of the constable, lilted him over the hedge to keep company with the other, and went on his way home- ward without being further molested by the minious of the law, who, after such humiliating defeat, returned to Narberth, and reported the matter to the magistrate there. Jacky Davy safely reached his home at Plas, and after tripping his load of lime in the field, brought his concern into the yard, put tha horses into the stable, saw their noed supplied, went into the house and told his father of the inci- dents of the day and of his collision with the Narberth constables. His father was a very tall and big man, a giant among men of as good mental abilities as he was strong and as shrewd in matters of law, that he was often more than a match for a lawyer. After hearing all that his son had to say, he said :—" They will be after you lad, and will not rest until you are appre- hended. I think it would be well for you to go and bide for a few days, until we sea In what course will be further taken." Jacky Davy acted on hits father's sugges- tion, and after taking a hearty meal, he tcld his fattier where to ha should go and hide himself. He wont straight to Berllandawel farm-house, whose land ad- joined that of Plas, and wi-, the early home of the writer of this history, after his mother's death at Horse shoe-dale and in that house, upstairs, Jacky hid himself for two or three day. His hiding-place was, of course, kept a profound secret for the time being, and he was fed gratuitously, as a mark of kindness ii,nd friendship by one farmer to bis ntaieso neighbour.

Stephens, Burton N.-P., M.; Mrs. Colville, Marloes N.-P., S.; Daisy Miller, Milford N.-P., Inf., S.; Anna John, Narberth N.-P., U.; Thomas B. Rhys, New Hedges N.-P., U.

Strud- v ick, Darn St. Cl., S.; Emily Hopper, St. Martin's, U.; Annie McKay, Milford Cl. (Inf.), S. MINOR AUTHORITIES. Rev. W.. Powell asked were the minor au- thorities consulted in the matter of making appointments ? It was pointed out that to do this in all cases would lead to delay, and might, in some cases lead to a school being understaffed. At the same time the Edu- cation Authority was always glad to receive recommendations from the minor authorities. .More than this could not be done. I FURNISHING. The recommendations of the Furnishing Committee were adopted, and call for no comment. THE COUNTY SCHOOLS. The .Chairman said in view of the fact that they were preparing a new scheme for the county schools it was very desirable that they should have a full report of the work- ing of the schools, especially in view of the fact that many members of that Authority were not connected as governors with the county schools. He suggested that the Di- rector of Education should be asked to pre- pare a report. Mr. Palmer Morgan did not see ihe necessity of such, report. The Chairman thought there was a neces- sity, particularly as there was no uniformity in the conducting of those schools. At any rate it could do no harm. M. Joseph Thomas said the staff was al- ready overworked, and he doubted the wis- dom of imposing any extra work. Jlr. i/aimer Morgan thought it was unneces- aiy, because already they had published re- ports of the working of the schools. The Chairman said certain districts asked for money, and others kept within their in- come. They ought to know why that was so: They wanted to know how the schools were worked, what was the headmaster's salary, and the amount of the capitation grant, which was not the same ail over the county. If they were to keep these schools going they must have some idea how the money was spent. Then they wanted to know what was spent on alterations and re- pairs, the cost of maintenance, salaries, num ber of teachers and number of scholars per teacher. HIGHER EDUCATION. Mr. Palmer Morgan brought up the report 6f this committee. County Schools.—Letters were read from the Board of Education recognising Fishguard and Tenby County Schools as secondary schools, and the Haverfordwest Grammar School and Fishguard County School as P.T.'s centres. Special Local Secretary.—A letter was read from the Board of Education stating that the Sp. L. Secretary for the Pembroke Dock centre was not justified in acting as he did, and that his action did not bind the .E.A. in any way to pay any expenses to him incurred without the Authority's sanction. It was recommended to authorise the payment of £ 10 8s. 4d., which with the zP,2 7s. fees at present in the hands of the Sp. L. Secretary, made up the amount which the Board stipulated should be paid by the Authority, the Board's contribution being £4 7s. 6d. Fishguard County School.—The Board of Education notified that there was a balance of iE29 16s. 4d. due to this school in grants under the Secondary School Regulations, and I that an order for payment would be sent in 1 due course. Cookery Diplomas.—Circular 539 was read i from the Board of Education, stating that after July, 1906, the Board will not issue dip- lomas in cookery, and would instead recognise, in future, persons holding approved diplomas granted by approved training schools. Shrewsbury Conference.—The Director read copies of the resolutions passed at the Shrews bury Conference held on January 26th, in regard to the training of teachers. The com- mittee desire to express their opinion that the training of pupil teachers be an Imperial charge and not a local one. Horticulture.—Applications had been receiv- ed ior courses of lectures on horticulture in various districts, and the Clerk was instructed to arrange according to the number of appli- cations received. Buildings.—The committee decided that business connected with the buildings of the county schools fell within the jurisdiction of the Higher Education Sub-Committee and not of the Buildings Sub-Committee. Tenby Co. School: Cookery Rooms, Etc.— Plans were submitted for the proposed laun- dry, manual instruction and cookery room, and the committee approved of them, and di- rected that they be forwarded to the Board of Education, and they recommend that appli- cation be made to the County Council to raise a sufficient loan for the purpose of the build- ings. Equipment of Cookery, Laundry, and M. In- struction Rooms.—It was decided that the Education Committee be recommended to make grant to all tfie county schools for the equipment of these rooms with the necessary appliance3. The recommendations were adopted, with a proviso that the county schools should be asked to furnish particulars of their appli- ances for cooking. Mr. Palmer Morgan: All this is set out ir the annual reports. The Chairman: But who is going to sit down and work these things out. If they are in the reports then the Director can soon prepare an exhaustive report. The Director of Education thought such a report as the Chairman had indicated was necessary, and he would gladly undertake it if requested, setting aside other work to do it. The Chairman's suggestion was thereupon adopted. A COMPLAINT. Rev. W. Powell drew attention to a bill for £7 or k8 for work done last September at a Neyland school, which had not been paid. The man was poor, and he was threatening to put the Authority in the county court. On enquiry none of he officials had any recollection of seeing the bill, but the Clerk promised to look into the matter at once. This ended the business.
Haverfordwest Rural District Council. MONTHLY MEETING. « The monthly meeting of this Council was held on Wednesday week at the Workhouse, Haverfordwest, Mr. T. Llewellin presiding over a fair attendance of members. TREGLEMAIS ROAD. Mr. J. Reynolds said when the committee applied to the Porthgain Company for stone for the roads they were told they could have the stone if they would pay for it. The Chairman: Are they beginning to mis- trust you? (Laughter.) Mr. Reynolds: Yes, rather. I move that the Clerk write the company to say that they will have their money in due course. The Clerk said the reason of the company answering as they did was probably due to ihe fact that the Council had not paid them a sum of k83 2s. lid. He was advised by Mr. R. T. P. Williams not to pay, but to let them take proceedings if they wished. Mr. Reynolds said, however, that might be they must have stones for the road from some- where, and they could get no better than Mr. Griffiths said there would soon be a Porthgain. number of claims against the Porthgain Com- pany at the rate they were going on. The Chairman asked would it not be better to refer this matter to the Mathry Commit- tee. Mr. W. G. James said it would be a long time before that committee met, and these reads were in a wretched state and needed immediate attention. Mr. Reynolds said the roads were in a wretched state, and the matter could not be deferred. Mr. W. G. James: What is the price? Mr. Reynolds: 2s. lid. per yard. Mr. Samson Williams asked what was to prevent the company from applying the money they received to the old account? Mr. W. G. James said the Surveyor could so and pick his stones and pay cash for what he had. The Clerk read a letter from the Porthgain company, which was to the effect that they would be prepared to supply stone and re- ceive payment without prejudice to the amount in dispute. Mr. Vincent John thought that as the ac- tion between the Council and the Porthgain Company would be on in about a fortnight it would be better to wait until that was over before ordering any stone. Mr. Reynolds was afraid if they allowed rhe roads to remain in their present dis- graceful state the Council might have to go before the magistrates for leaving the voads impassible. Mr. Samson Williams moved that Mr. Rey- nolds be authorised to buy the stones, and take the cheque himself at the end of the month. Mr. Reynolds: They are near and handy, and just: what we want. Mr. Vincent John: We have an action against the company in the hands of our solicitor which comes on at the next county court. I propose that we make no payment io the company until our action has been tried. i Mr. S. W. Dawkins seconded this. Mr. Reynolds said the District Council had ordered stones to be put down on these roads, and where else could they get them? The Clerk said even -if the stones were ordered at once they could not be paid for until. the Council met again a month hence, and before then the action would have been heard in the county court. Mr. Reynolds: We are bound to have stones from somewhere at once, and we cannot get them cheaper. Mr. W. G. James: I second the proposal that Mr. Reynolds should get them. If we do not make a payment it cannot prejudice our case, after the letter we have had from the company. It was finally agreed that Mr. Reynolds should himself order the necessary stone from the Porthgain Company at once. OLD HAKIN ROAD LEVEL CROSSING. The G.W.R. wrote stating that they could not spend the actuitional Eti-00 necessary to carry out certain suggestions which had been ,-na made, but they had no objection to carrying cut the work if the' Council would bear the cost. They were, however, willing to widen -he road at the end of the subway. The Chairman said the improvement was a very considerable one, as it would do away with the level crossing. Mr. Dawkins moved, that the offer of the Railway Company be accepted. Mr. Hugh J. P. Thomas seconded, but re marked that it would be very much better if they could get the 15 feet at the corners extended to 20 feet. Mr. J. S. Roberts thought there could be no harm in accepting the proposals provision ally, while at the same time asking that the road should be 20 feet at the entry. The resolution was agreed to. COODWICK TURNTABLE. The North Highway Board, to whom had been referred the proposals of the G.W.R. were of opinion that the agreement should not be approved unless the Railway Company would undertake to keep the road, where in- terfered with, to the width of 30- feet at .least. •With that exception they approved of the agreement. THE MODEL BYE-LAWS. Mr. W. G. James reported that the commit tee had examined the model bye-laws, and while they were trongly of opinion that as a 'hole they were excellent they thought seve- ral should be drafted which would speci- ally, suit this district. He suggested that a sub-committee should be appointed to draft the additions required. The matter was referred back to the Plan Committee. FISHGUARD SEWAGE. Mr. James said me committee had met at Lctterston, but they had had such short no- tice that there had not been sufficient time to consider the matter, and they asked that it might be deferred for further consideration, and the committee would be prepared to make a report by the next meeting. The Chairman hoped they would try to be ready by ne:¡t meeting, and The matter was deferred. GOODWICK DRAINAGE. The Solicitor to the G.W.R. wrote acknow- ledging receipt of the draft, and would pre- pare the agreement and accompanying plans. The Chairman said the matter would have to stand in abeyance until they received the agreement. Mr. J. C. Bowen asked could nothing be done now, as time was passing. Mr. Vincent John asked was there anything to prevent them advertising? The Clerk said they had not had the con- sent of the Local Government Board, nor sanctio to borrow money. The Chairman said they might write to the Local Government Board and ask if they might take the preliminary steps. The Clerk: The Local Government Board has been waiting for years for the District Council. (Laughter, and a member remarked that it looked like retaliation.) Mr. J. C. Bowen proposed that the Clerk write at once to the Local Government Board for the necessary permission. Mr. Joseph Watts seconded. The Chairman said they would try and get an early answer, but they must not go too fast. MAIN ROAD SUBSIDIES. ,Mr. W. G. James, in accordance with notice of motion, brought forward the question of the main roads of the county. He supposed most of those present were aware of the sys- tem under which subsidies for the main- tenance of the roads were granted. The five rural divisions of Pembroke, Narberth. Haverfordwest, St. Dogmaels, and Llanfyrnach had. each separate accounts kept, and at the end of the financial year a comparison was made. It was ascertained which district had the hea- \iest expenditure upon the roads, as com- pared with its ratable value; then that dis- trict was taken as the basis of calculation ,and while that district got nothing the others were compensated by taking as much from* the other districts as would put them on similar basis. Under such a system the county undoubtedly punished the district which had the heaviest traffic on its, roa is. Col. Ivor Philipps, and others besides him had pointed out the serious injustice the existing arrangement, and a scheme had b. e:1 prepared under which it was proposed & inuou fairer method of apportioning the bur ien by giving to each district a proportionate num- ber of main roads, and taking into considera- tion their ratable value. That was a fair and business-like way of dealing with the mat- Ler, and when it was placed before the Main Road.bommittee it was approved. When, however, the matter came up for confirmation at the County Council, a strong whip-up had been' made from Narberth and the Pembroke districts, and the proposal was defeated. He had seen the same thing at the Distriet;.Coun.! cil; a large number would come forward to defeat or carry a certain proposal. He had, :10 doubt the Narbeth and Pembroke .repre-' sentatives knew that their interests were threatened; while the northern representa- tives seemed to believe that the proposal was so fair it was not necessary that they should attend to carry it. The system in vogue in -his county was not in force anywhere else in Great Britain; and it was most unfair to the Haverfordwest rural district. At the pre- sent. moment Narberth was rated at Is., Pem- broke at s., St. Dogmeals Is., Llanfyrnach lOd., and Haverfordwest 2s. in the Z. That v.-as the position, ad he asked why should .Haverfordwest pay double any other district in the county. He proposed that a strong committee should be sent from that District Council to place the facts before the County Council, and ask them to re-consider the matter. Haverfordwest should be allowed 35 more miles of main roads, which should be maintained by the -county; and each rural district in the county ought to be placed on an equal basis. Mr. W. Howell Walters asked had the County Council refused to take over as main roads any they had been asked to do? It was replied that the Dale road had been refused, but Mr. Howell Walters said it was because the road had not been put in order. Mr. Vincent John said they had good -rea: son to object to the main roads being main- tained on the present basis. He instanced the St. Davids road as a case where they had not only to pay an increased county rate, but had also to, pay more of a district rate. On the ground that county roads should: be maintained out of the county rate he seconded Mr. James's proposal. Mr. J. Reynolds: complained of, the way in which the county roads were managed, slnd ;aid the county authorities went to the dear- est place for ston, instead of asking the District Councils to get contracts for them; but, of course, the county authorities were wiser than they were. (Laughter.) The resolution was then carried unani- mously. Afterwards Mr. James named as his com- mittee: Mr. J. S. Roberts, Mr. Vincent John, Mr. Joseph Watts, Rev. W. H. Walters, Mr. I. H. Lewis, Mr. YV. J. Owen, and himself. MISCELLANEOUS. A letter was read from the Local Govern- ment Board approving of the grant of C25 to Mr. Phillips for additional work; also a letter with respect to the re-appointment of the four Medical Officers of Health. With respect to the latter the Board said they still adhered to their former view, that there should only be one medical officer. INSPECTORS' REPORTS. The Inspector of -the south district (Mr. Gibbon) reported one case of typhoid fever- at Moory Hall, the other matters being purely of a routine character. For the north district (Mr. Phillips) it was stated that the district was free from infectious disease. At St. Davids he had inspected the common lodg- ing-houses and dairies. He found one dairy in a very filthy condition, ad the milk excep- tionally dirty and offensive. Unless he found I the premises improved on his next visit the sale of mill: must be stopped. At Letterston in the upper part of the village, the inhabit- ants were suspicious as to the purity of the water supply, and he found the water had never been analysed. He advised that a sample be sent away at once. This course was agreed £ o. Mr. Phillips also reported an encroachment at Station Road, Letterston, and another at the Rose and Crown, Goodwick. Also plans of new buildings he had received for consid- eration. These included plans of three houses at St. Davids; three houses at Good- wick; and 18 new cottages at Penew, Good- wick. The plans were all passed.
NARBERTH NEWS. f $ .The Miniature Rifle Range has been opened, and the tick tack" of the bullets now keep the somnolent babes of Narberth awake on Tuesday and Friday nights. The formal open- ing took place on Monday evening last, when the Rev. J. Morris, M.A. (the Rector of Nar- berth), fired the first shot and, recorded a "bull." The club is, we understand, affili- ated to the Working Men's Miniature Rifle Club's Association, which is trying to organise a number of clubs in this county in accord- ance with Earl Roberts' schemes for the train- ing of civilians to shoot. Narberth folk have always assumed the superiority of their town to the neighbour- ing collection of houses called Whitland, but now that we are to have a newspapfer all our own, we feel sure the dispute is ended. But Pembrokeshire has too many newspapers as it is, and this fact will be emphasised shortly when the only paper in request will be-the Guardian." The repeat concert of the National school .children will be given on Friday evening next. The concert of the Board school 'children will be held later in March. Mr. John Hawes is assiduously training his mites," as he terms them, in singing and acting, and we are looking forward to a splendid entertain- ment. We have just received a programme of the eisteddfpd which will be held in Narberth in a few frionths. Great care seems to have been taken in the compilation of the pro- gramme, and the test pieces (so far as we can at present judge) seem to be excellently chosen, although we doubt the wisdom of inviting an essay on-" Socialism," not to exceed 5,000 words. Some consideration ought to be shown for the poor adjudicator who has to wade through, or wallow in, a mass of undi- gested writings, generally called essays by their authors. We also doubt the propriety of choosing the Psalm of Life" as a reci- tation for. children. Surely something more interesting to the child and less hackneyed might have been found.
Sad Fatality at Porthgain. MAN'S HEAD BLOWN OFF. A sad fatality Look place at the Porthgain granite quarry on Saturday afternoon last at 3 o'clock, resulting in the shocking death of Mr. John Hughes, sub-contractor of the quarry. Our reporter learned that the unfor- tunate man, in company with his son, was taking part in blasting operations at the above quarry, and the charge went off sooner than they had expected, with the result that Mr. John Hughes's head was almost completely blown off. Deceased's son was eye-witness of the sad occurrence, but himself escaped un- injured. He promptly summoned assistance, and several workmen were soon on the scene. It was decided to send for P.C.'s Phillips (Letterston) and Nash (Solva). In the mean- time they carried the unfortunate man's body to his residence, No. 2 Sunn:w Side, Porthgain, where his wife and children were prostrated with grief when the news, of the calamity reached them. John Hughes was the son of the late Mr. Sam Hughes (of Llanrian), and had worked at Porthgain for the last 17 years. When the dock at Porthgain was made several years ago, Hughes had the charge of operations. It appears that deceased had only been from the house for about half an hour before the accident occurred, and on his way called at the office of the works, where he chatted freely with the clerk. He was of a genial and hapP1" disposition, and highly respected oy .his fellow, workmen. Deceased'and Mr. Tom Howen, the foreman of. the brickyard, had worked together at Porthgain for about 17 years, and Bowen's testimony was that no better workman could be wished for. It ap- pears that no accident of a fatal kind has taken place at these works for over 50 years. The decased was a member of Berea Congre- gational Church, and attended last Sunday's services, when the funeral sermon -of his brother (WIn. Hughes, who died at Aberdare) was preached. He was highly respected in the neighbour- hood, and was 48 years of age. It may be mentioned that work at the quarry is for the present suspended, the met out of respect to the decased, having decided not to resume operations until after the funeral.
Explosion at Ford. About 5 a.m. on Monday there was an accident on the new line at Ford, which might have had serious consequences, but for- tunately had no fatal termination. Some shot holes had been prepared for blasting, and the ammunition man was in the act of preparing or tempering the cartridges, prior to inserting them, when the explosion oc- curred. The man who was doing this pre- liminary work was badly cut abolit the face and body, presumably by pieces of the pan into which the cartridges had been placed, and two men, who were at work drilling close hy, were also cut and knocked about. Luckily that is the full extent of the damage done. The cause of the explosion is a mystery. Ao was explained at thecent inquest at a fatal accident at Tijecgain, the cartridges N used in blasting have to be tempered, for if used when cold they are very dangerous. For this purpose special pans are provided. There is an outer pan filled, with hot water, and an inner one with a funnel in the centre in which the cartridge is inserted. It was while the cartridge was standing in the pan that it prematurely exploded.. Why it should nave exploded under such circumstances will probably be a subject for inquiry. .y,.
