Mr. Roberts said he got out of the car to talk to Inspector Jarrett, and tripped in doing so, striking the front wheel of the inspector's bicycle with his feet. Inspector Jarrett thenbecame white with rage, Mi. Roberts declared, and shook his fist in Mr. Roberts' face, saying: "If you do that again I v ill knock you down." The magistrates stopped the case, and announced thaffno case of assault had been made out. The summons was dismissed.

DOCKYARD PROSPECTS BRICHTENINC. Mr. Owen Philipps, the member for the Boroughs, brought a very hopeful message to the dockyard town the other evening. He gave an absolute assurance that neither in this, uor the coming financial year, will there be any further discharges from the yard. Nor was this all. He has publicly pledged himself that he will never rest satisfied until the Welsh Dockyard is given a big ship to build, and until it has a large graving dock. The latter is the more im- portant of the two. A big ship would mean certain work for the next year or so, but a dock which will accommodate the large war vessels now in use would mean that Pembroke would be not only an important bnilding yard, but a repairing yard of some importance. It is invariably a cause for wonder to any naval man who visits the Pembroke yard, and sees how admirably it is equipped, and its unique, natural and geographical advantages, that the Admir- alty has so long neglected this most essen- tial provision. In the event of a naval war it would be discovered at once how criminal was the folly of the naval amthorities in withholding this most needful equippment of a Government yard. If we consider that from Deronport to the Clyde there is no yard filled to repair a modern war vessel, while midway between those two stations is the finest and most secure harbour in the world, practically useless because of the niggardliness of the Admiraity, it is self-evident what an excellent, nay irresis- tible case the Welsh members could present to the Government, could they for once sink their petty squabbles, and inter-necise strife, and unite for a really national ob- ject.
ST. LAWRENCE FARMERS AFFAIRS. A CAUTION FROM THE OFFICIAL RECEIVER. At Pembroke Dock Bankruptcy Court on Friday the affairs of John Albert Phillips, of Worth, St. Lawrence, farmer, were investi- gated. Mr. W. J. Jones, of Haverfordwest, appeared on behalf of the debtor, whose statement of affairs showed gross liabilities amounting to Z439 2s., of which Z430 15s. were expecied to rank. There was a deficiency of Z339 2s. 6d., the assets only being estimated to produce £94 19s. 6d. Debtor alleged "Death of stock and ill-health" as the causes of his failure. In his observations the Official Receiver (Mr. Thomas Thomas) stated the receiving order was made on the debtor's own petition on January 12, which he filed in consequence of pressure by creditors. He was adjudged bankrupt on the same day. The bankrupt, age d39, com- menced farming at Worth, Wolfscastle, a farm of abost 32 acres, rpon the death of his mother, fourteen years ago, with a capital of about £80. The bankrupt'states that he sold five cattle at Haverfordwest Fair on the 8th inst. for £42 5s. Od., which money was paid to him by a local firm of auctioneers who were pressing him. The creditors shown as partly secured are the debtor's bankers for money advanced on note signed by the bankrupt and a surety. They hold a policy of assurance for E230 en the joint lives of the bankrupt and his brother, effected November, 1905. With the exception of E90, moneys borrowed from two friends, and zE24 due for a reaper and binder, the unsecured liabilities are for purchases for sales, etc. At the outset the debtor said that he wished to make some alteration to his deficiency account. The item he had put down as £126 for loss and depreciation of stock for the past year was for three years. The amount he had lost during the past year was about £ 30. He also wished to alter the item household ex- penses from 10s. to P.1 a week. The Official Receiver: As. the result of that you will have to furnish an amended deficiency account. In reply to the Official Receiver, debtor said that he owed a MT. William Lloyd £ 30, but admitted that it was not in his statement of affairs. The Official Receiver: I am asking you why didn't you put it in?—I didn't recollect at the time. That is e30 more you have to account for. Have you handed over all your books and papers?—There are some papers, but they are of no value. How do you know? What are all these paperst-They are only some letters that have been handed back and fore. You were told by me the other day to send all books and papers. Why didn't you send them, anl let me judge if there was any value ? -I did not think it was any use to send them to anyone. You will send them all now -Yes, sir, any- thing I have got. The Official Receiver here produced a small memorandum book and a cash book of very battered appearance, which debtor said were the only books of account he had kept He explained that some of the leaves were torn out of the book, which was a very old one before he had it. The Official Receiver: You are a carpenter and wheelwright?—Yes, sir. You were doing a good deal of work in the neighbourhood -As much as I could. I am not able to do much. Why?—Owing to illness. Are you always ill?—Most of my time. You have been boasting to your creditors that there are hundreds of pounds out for vou'?—I am to be beOieved as aell as my creditors. Do you say you have not said anything of the sort?—I have not said so, or I have said an untruth. Do you say that you did not tell your credi- tors that you had money out for you, and would pay them when you got it in?—I would pay them if I had it. That is not the question. Did you tell them ? -I don't remember. Don't you remember at the meeting of credi- tors two gentlemen said you told them that?— Yes. They were telling what is untrue?—They do not .know my affairs. But they knew what you had told them?— Yes, but they know I haven't got it. I know they do now. But didn't you tell them that there was a lot of money out for you, and you would pay as soon as it came in?—I don't recollect, sir. Are you prepared to deny it? Do you say you never told them anything of the sort?—I am prepared to tell the truth as far as I can. That is not the question, sir, and you know it. Are you prepared to say on your oath that you never told Mr. Morri9 nor MT. Hodges that there was a lot of money out for you, and you would pay as soon as you l'ould 1-No answer. Come, we want to catch the train back?—I can't remember it myself. That is not the question. The question is are you prepared to deny it? The Registrar: Answer the question, please. Do you deny that you made such staten.f.its ? —I can't deny it, sir. The Registrar: Then you admit it ?—I have got nothing. The Official Receiver: We believe you now. Did you ever tell people that you had what you had not?—No answer. The Official Receiver now read a letter in which debtor wrote to one of his creditors that he had sent out for some money to his place, but had not got it. The letter commenced with the sentence, "I am not myself." (Laugh- ter.) Debtor admitted that the letter implied that he had money coming to him. The Official Receiver: Then why did you deny it, man? Why didn't you admit it like an honest man 1-1 have done so far as I can. The Official Receiver: After your experience at the first meeting don't say that. (Laughter.) Debtor was next examined in regard to the transactions with his brother, who had been living with him. His brother's name was on the bank book, but he never signed a cheque. All his brother now possessed was a few sheep, and where these were now debtor could not exactly say. He admitted that his brother bought the sheep in his name, but said that he had paid for them. Further questioned, he said that he gave his brother the sheep for wages. He also gave him £5 for wages. The Official Receiver: Although you have been misleading your creditors by stating that there was money out for you, in preparing your statements ycu disclose book debts of the value of only kl 15s. ?—I misled them in no way. Did you not tell Mr Hodges that?--I don't think so. Take care. There is such a thing as perjury. It is a very serious crime?—I did not say any- thing. I dont believe you. You have got a lot of money about to-day, sir?—I have not got a penny. Just before your bankruptcy you moved a good many cattle from the farm?—I sold them, sir. A week before you filed your petition you lemoved some?—They were sold, sir. What did you sell?—Some sheep and some cattle. Debtor was next cross-examined about a mare which was on his farm, which had been re- moved to his sister's farm. It was his sister's and had been lent to him. He was then ex- amined with regard to the sheep again, and gave some evasive answers. The Official Receiver: Let me warn you if you go on like this I shall ask the learned regis- trar to make an order for you to appear before the judge, and you will be committed to prison. Debtor (with a smile): I am sorry, sir. The official Receiver: You will be more sorry anct laugh the other way when you go before the judge. It is a very serious thing. j In reply to further questions, debtor said that he made no profit on the farm, and though he and his brother both worked as car- penters and wheelwrights they made no profit on that either, as debtor could not do much. The Official Receiver: Then you and your brother have been living on your creditors for the last two years?—We have been living on the little money we had. By borrowing and selling cattle. Do you consider that right and honest?—No answer. Do you seriously want the court to believe that neither you nor your brother earned any money by working at your trade?—Yes, sir. Debtor was next cross-examined in reference to the item of £30 he said that he had lost by sickness, and admitted that he had paid no doctor's bills, which caused the Official Re- ceiver to remark that he could not point to a R,5 note he had lost by illness. Debtor: Not in cash. Debtor was next questioned ry two creditors, Mr. Watts, of Letterston, and Mr. Morris. The former pointed out that. debtor said he ex- changed a horse worth zE28 10s. and a cow worth £8 10s. for a horse worth £4 or £5 and a £ 5 note. Debtor said that was so. Mr. Watts: Then it must have been a very good bargain. After some further cross-examination the case was adjourned, thE, Official Receiver int]- mating that he should probably examine the debtor's brother and sister.
0 NEW THEOLOGY. A Man of Experience. I have had some little experience of dealing with men who have strayed from the path cf lectitude, and in some instances I have seei their return to a life of respectability, but this has only been accomplished by the mes- sage of the Cross, and I should hesitate to t f" tempt any such work without the assurance that Jesus Christ was Divine, and' that He is able to save to the uttermost all who come to God through Him. R SINNETT. No Theologian. I thank you for your letter, but I am not theologian, and although I have my opinion like most other people, will leave it for wiser heads than mine to give their expressions in plint-betw.e.en you and me, it is given more pvblicity than it deserves. -Whether new or old-it goes, to my mind, much against the Wiitten Word, it makes Sin appear much what tl ous.ands would wish it were, and makes the S>v:ous much as other men. G. H. BTDDLECOMBE. Time too fully Occupied. I am sorry that I have no views on this subject to make public, and indeed if I had, my time just at present is too fully occupied to allow me to put them into writing. R. T. P. WILLIAMS. Strong Language. Preaching at Pembroke, on Sunday evening before a large congregation, the Rev. Evan Thomas dealt at some length with the New Theology. He said in the course of his remarks that Mr. Campbell's proclamation as regarded the new theology and its relation to sin was suitable, and would be hailed with joy by the scoundrels and sinners who prowled the streets.

Sir,—I should like to express my thanks to the very many of your leaders who have com- municated to me their kindly approval of the main lines of thought which ran through my articles on the above subject. It has been especially helpful to me to know that men in every class, and among Churchmen and Non- conformists alike, agree with the general prin- ciples laid down. May I, at the same time, while recognising the manly truth, which his letter in your last issue contains, point out to Fair labour that he has misquoted and so mis-represented me. I did not speak of the working man as being rough-handed, and uneducated, and with no hope of intellectual advancement." What I did say was "Nor is his education so far advanced, that intellectual appeals can deeply interest him," and His intellectual efforts may be rough and tending to no vista 01 divine knowledge." You will see that there is a very real, and a very important difference between these two statements. No one is more ambitious, or more hopeful, for the edu- cational future of our woi'king-cjesses than 1 am; and, as far as my influence goes, it will always be given to every effort to provide for them every possible educational advantage. Had Free labour waited for my third arti- cle. he vould have understood this, from what I wrote on the subject. In other words, I be- lieve the working man has evexy hope of intel- lectual advancement. But, it is equally true that, at, the present time, the number of those who have been enabled to attain to this most hoped for intellectual advancement is com- paratively small, and it is no argument to point to the exceptions, such as the prominent labour leaders, and the labour representatives in Parliament. This is the old logical fallacy of arguing from particulars to universals." I took up the position I did in my articles on behalf, not of the smaller number of the more advanced and educated working men, but rather as one who deeply sympathizes* with the majority and the less favoured onee. And again, while I frankly admit the shrewd com. mon-sense of the working-classes as a whole, a contribution of which to the active life of the churches I pleaded for in my third article, the majority have not yet fitted themselves for any very profound abstract thought. This is their misfortune, not their fault and applies equally to many who occupy other social por- tions. It is for this reason that I argued for more practical and less theoretical preach- ing. I hope that this explanation will satisfy Fair Labour and that, if ever the opportun- ity comes, he will give me the privilege and the pleasure of knowing him personally. Yours, etc D. AKRILL JONES.
AMERICAN TINNED MEATS. Sir Walter Foster, M.P., has returned from a trip to the United States, in the course of which he paid a visit to Chicago, in addition to other principal industrial centres. In an interview with a press representative Sir Walter Faster describes the reports circu- lated with regard to American Tinned Meats as preposterous exaggerations. He declares that the American Tinned Meat Trade as a whole is carried on under condi- tions which would satisfy the most fastidious.' This first hand testimony, coming from such a distinguished exponent of medical science, will reassure many who were somewhat alarmed on account of certain reports, whicn have been published on the subject.

COUNTY JOTTINCS. Contributions to this column are invited. Let them be as pithy and bright as possible. A post-card to Editor, "County Guardian," Old Bridge, Haverfordwest, will suffice. At the present time there arc no cold hand?, because they are well shaken by C.C. candi- dates At Mynydd-du, an ewe brought its owner Mr. L. B. Rees, four iambs, which are doing elL The Rev. Owen Jacobs describes the Rev. James Phillips as "the John Burns of the Pem- brokeshire County Council." Overheard in the streets Polly The way that man looked at me was positively insult- ing." Dolly—" Did he stare at you ?" Polly— No lie just glanced at me and then looked at something else." A large adder was killed on Thursday last at Llanungar Fawr farm. It is not often we hear of these species making their appearance in frosty weather. This is the first adder re- ported killed as yet this year. Said a Pembroke Sunday School teacher to a lrittle boy in his class the other day, "What are the wages of sin, Tommy ?" The young pupil after long puzzling hesitatingly replied, "What if you gave him a shilling a day and his food." It must be nice to be a member of Parlia- ment sometimes. When Alx. John Jenkins, M.P came upon the platform at a conversazione at Pembroke Dock last week, a young lady greet- ed him with a chaste salute. Great in- terest has since been taken in politics by the young men of the locality. We often hear of the smart things done by the post office people in delivering insufficient- ly addressed letters. The Haverfordwest peo- ple show the reverse side of the medal. A letter was posted in this town, to "Mrs. Row- lands, Jhnas Cross," and was returned marked insuffiiciently addressed." 0.1 Monday last a ewe. belonging to Mr. James Morse, Pantybrwyn, near Wolfscastle, gave birth to six lambs, all doing well. It was only last season this prolific ewe brought four lambs to its owner. This makes a total of ten lambs in a year. We doubt if a similar occur- rence can be recorded in the county. If so, we shall be glad to heir. One of the sub-post offices in the county is likely to have a sJump in stamps. An excited lady rushed in the other day and asked the girl in charge if she remembered selling her a stamp ? The girl did. Well said the lady "I put it on a very important letter, and posted it and it has not been received. I shall buy my stamps elsewhere if this occurs again." "Boo-hoo, boo-hec) cr:.f'd a little boy in the streets of Pembroke Dock. What is the matter ? asked the kind lady. My farveff's been be-b-beating me." 11 cheer up my little man; most fathers have to beat little boys at times, if they're naughty." "But you don't know my farver. He ain't like other farvers. He's in the brass band and beats the big drum. So it hurts eyer so much more! A Goliath of a telephone pole, 70 feet high, has just been erected on the New Quay, Haver- fordwest. The work of pulling up poles, and installing the 'phone in the southern part of the county is being pushed forward rapidly. We hope from this office soon to be in tele- phonic touch with Milford Haven, Pembroke Dock, Pembroke, Tenby, and Narbexth. The "coming capital," we are sorry to say, is omit- ted. A good "gag" has often saved a play when deftly used at a critical moment. During the long interval of scene shifting, etc., be- tween the two pieces which the Fishguard amateur dramatists performed on Friday last, the audience were kept in good humour by the striking up of popular ditties on the piano and getting the pit and the "gods" to join. It was wonderful to see the quieting effect of the Sospan fach" upon the filled hall and notice how soon all grasped the humour of the situation. (Late North News).
MINISTERS "CALL" TO ST. DAVID'S- The Rev. J. Maelor Morgan, of Lee Congre- gational Church, Horwich, Bolton, Lancashire, has accepted the unanimous invitation accord- ed him to become pastor of Ebenezer Church, St. David's. On Sunday week Mr. Morgan an- nounced to his congregation at Horwich that he had accepted a call to another church, and would make his decision known in a week. Last Thursday a special church meeting was held in order to discuss this important an- nouncement. We understand that several speakers felt that it would be difficult for them to do without Mr. Morgan's guidance at the present juncture. They were undertaking the transfer of the day school to the County Authority and their pastor had been the leader in all the negotiations. The Church passed a resolution thanking Mr. Morgan for his splen- did services during the seven years and praying he might be guided to a right decision. The Rev. J. M. Morgan was educated at Bangor University and Congregational Colleges, and has been minister of English Churches si,34.-3 he left college. Mr. Morgan has finally de- cided to accept the pastorafe ot Ebenezer and wiil make arrangements on. Sunday next with regard to the time of removal.
MR J WARD, M P. AT FISHCUARD. Mr. John Ward, Labour Member for Stoke- on-Trent, gave an address at Fishguard on Wednesday evening. Extended reports of his addiesses at Fishguard, and at Haverfordwest Thursday night, and Pembroke Dock, Friday night, will be given in next week's County Guardian."
CUTTER IN DISTRESS AT FISHGUARD. On Wednesday night the cutter Eva, of Liverpool, hoisted signals of distress in Fish- guard Bay. The lifeboat took off the crew. The master reported that the anchor had dragged.
TOSSING THE PANCAKE. On Shrove Tuesday the pancake was tossed in the Great Hall of Westminster School, Just before one o'clock the boys aa- sembled in the Great Hall, and about 20 were selected to compete for the guinea annually awarded to the boy who secures either; the whole or the largest portion of the pancake.. They were then drawn up near the entrance to the Hall, close under the bar over which the pancake is tossed. Then the school cook, in white apron and cap, bearing in his hand the pan with the pancake, marched in, preceded by the Dean's Verger, with his mace. The cook went to the far side of the bar, and threw the pancake over it. Immediately there was a ruahi for the pancake, which fell outside the group of boys. One boy, J. Ainger, threw himself bodily on it. There was a struggle round him, and eventually one boy seized part of the pan- cake from beneath Ainger. He was immediately pounced upon by a dozen others, who scrim- maged for the piece. Meanwhile the remain* ing boys were bent on dislodging Ainger, but could not do so in the allotted period. When the headmaster called "Time," Ainger watf found to be in possession of three-quarters at the pancake, and was declared winner. Amict loud cheers he was conducted by the Dean'. Verger to the office, where he received his guinea.
