HAVERFORDWEST. THE LIBERAL 100 ADOPTS CANDIDATES. On Friday evening a public meeting under the auspices of the Liberal hundred, was held in the Bethesda school, Haverfordwest. There was a fairly good attendance. The Rev. Owen Jacobs was voted to the chair, and in his open- ing remarks said we had already begun to breathe the atmosphere of the elections, and should begin to prepare for the contests, and go in with a determination to win. PRENDERGAST DIVISION. Mr. Twigg proposed, and Mr. Chas. Pugh seconded, the adoption of Mr. W. T. Davies as the Liberal candidate for Prendergast. The resolution was carried unanimously. Mr. Davies returned thanks for this express ion of confidence, and said during the six years he had represented the division he had left endone nothing which it was in his power to do, to further the interests of the ratepayers in the county council. He had been a mem- ber of the Education Committee from the be- ginning, and he did not think he had missed three meetings. He had also tried to look after the interests of working men in the county. One of their greatest opponents gave him cre- dit for raising the wages of the men employed on the roads by 2s. a week. (Laughter). So far he had not got an opponent (" Lucky you.") He thought he had deserved a rest this time; at any rate he had a clear field so far. ST. MARTINS. Mr. Joseph Thomas (Dew Street), moved, and Mr. W. Davies seconded, the adoption of the Rev. James Phillips as Liberal candidate for this division, and the motion was carried unamio-u sly. Rev. James Phillips, in returning thanks, said he had attended every meeting it was possible for him to attend. His work had lain chiefly with the education department, but he had tried to Tender service in other matters; main loads for instance, which was his Iriend's Mr. Reynolds, special department, had re- ceived some at'enticn from him. The, Haver fordwest representatives had worked so well together that they were congratulated some time ago upon "being a strong team," and, added Mr. Phillips, "I think we are." In education matters he was, he supposed, ire- garded by the Liberal and Nonconformist majority as being their champion. They had had no Passive Registers," no refusal to pay the Education rate, because the) Education Committee had stepped in between the work- ing of the iniquitous Education Act and the Nonconformist ratepayers in the county; and he did not scrupde to say that he saw no reason why any Nonc-o-nfcormisit should not pay the Education rate in this county with a clear conscience. He warned the Liberal ma- jority in the council, however, that it would require great care to steer the ship off the rocks unlessi there was some change in the education policy. He believed that the May rate would be one that no Nonconformist need conscientiously refuse to pay, but he could not say that of the November rate. He, how- ever, would be no paaty to levying a rate which might necessitate levying a distress upon the goods of a conscientious Nonconformist. Mr. Phillips went on to speak of thi cauif.gi of calumny directed personally against him in this election. Ho pointed out that he was not responsible for the Haverfordwest schools being unfairly threated: the original scheme vnder which they were treated was prepared in 1&94; but the naw scheme which would %0; come in operation contained a substantial co--) cession to justice, and, except in one minute point, might be regarded as very satisfactory from the Haverfordwest point of view. He said if disaster should happen to Mr. Reynolds and himself, and they were not returned, it would not affect the Liberal majority on the council. What would happen would be that the voice of Haverfordwest would not be so effective as it was now. The chairman said they had grown accus tomed to look on Mr. Phillips as the John Burne of the county (ouncil, and could hardly imagine how it would get oa withoui him. ST. THOMAS. The chairman proposed, and Mr. Essex Mar- tin seconded the adoption of Mr. Isaiah Rey- nolds as Liberal candidate for St. Thomas. This was also carried unanimously. Mr. Reynolds in returning thanks said three years ago when he stood far St. Thomas's di- vision it was regnded as hopeless, and he him- self did not expect to win. He should, how ever, have a stiffen fight this time than he had then, for he had a much stronger op- ponent. He had a Goliath to fight, but like another David he should win. (Laughter). He had attended every meeting of the. county coun- cil, and, all the committees, with the excep- tion of one or two. He had the record for J.' attendance at the Main Roads Committee. He had taken great interest in the main roads, and had dione his utmost to get them properly maintained. He had nothing to Q,3.y against Archdeacon Hilbeis, but why was he standing for the county covncil? Was it not for selfish and sectarian purposes, to look after the church schools? Now that they were support- ed by public rates what right had any one to keep the control of them from the public? We had 14,000 church supported out of public money, out of rates paid directly by the citizens of this country, and yet not a single one of those schools was open to a Noncon- formist teacher, unless he sacrificed his prin- cipals. This was not a church and chapel question; it was a citizen's question, and that was the point of view he wished to keep to the front. Referring to the standing joint com- mittee, he sked a it right that they should be asked to vote £7,000 a year to that com- mittee, and have no control over its expendi- ture? He asserted that the county council should have power to appoint the chief con- stable. He was pleased to find that county councils throughout the kingdom were adopt- ing this view. The chairman told a 9tory of a friend in Lon- don who asked how another friend was getting on. "Oh very well," was the answer, "but his wife is the better man of the two." Mr. Reynolds, he added, had to fight not only Goliath, but his better half as well. (Laugh ter). THE HAMLETS Mr. S. J. Rees proposed, and Mr. George Howells seconded, the adoption of Mr. T. Lewis, of Hanton, as. Liberal candidate for the Hamlets. It was supported by Mr. T. C. Rees and carried. Mr. Lewis, in responding, said the seat had been in the enemy's hands for 15 years. Un- fortunately he was unsuccessful in his effort to capture it last time, but he hoped to be more successful this time. (Appaluse). Shortly afterwards the meeting terminated.
AMBLESTOV- A public meeting, called at the instance of the Conservative party in the Ambleston Divi- sion, was held in the schoolroom, to nominate a candidate to fight in the forthcoming County Council election. The nomination of Mr. Victor J. Higgon, Sealyham, has been an open secret for months, and this. meeting was really to support the candidature. There was a very representative attendance, and the meeting was characterised by considerable enthusiasm. Colon-el Lloyd, Treffgarne Hall, was, on the motion of the Rev. John Rees, rector of Letter- ston, seconded by Mr. Morris, Brimaston, elected to the chair. The colonel said the meeting was called to select a candidate to oppose th", Liberals in their endeavor V: return the sitting member, Mr. James ¡ Harries, Hayscastle. He thought they were very fortunate in having a ge ltieman like Air. Higgon with them, and he was sure they had now found the right man for their f-itu-ce county councillor. (Cheers). He had much pleasure in proposing the adoption of Mr, Rlggon Ae oandilata (Cheers ) The Rev. John Reps, in seconfimgj aid they wanted to return solueonfe who Would econo- mise. Next came the Mr. V. J. Higgon, who was very well received. He thanked them for the honour they were confetrring upon him, and proceeded to say in the course of his maiden speech that county council elections should be non-political—(cheers)—quoting some remarks of his late father (Captain Higgon, Scolton) to support that view. Then he (Mr. Higgon) thought that the candidate ie- turned should, in the first instance, be an agriculturist, which he thought he could lay claim to as being now a farmer. The important question of economy was next briefly dealt with and criticisid sharply; the ,erio-is ad- vance of the -ra,i was condemned, and the present council was likened to the seed oats which an unwise farmer would sow in the same ground for several successive years., with the result that it would become wild, a metaphor, which met with loud cheering and laughter as the candidate resumed his seat. Mr. John Bateman, Wallis, .vas the 'next speaker, and teing called upon to 'eak in Welsh, regretted he could not, though a Welsh- man and proud of it. He could not wholly sympathise with the farmers in "ftieir gram'o ling about +he rates going LIp. Farmers were notorious for grumbling, they were thus since he could lecollect, and he wa3 pretty well sure they would be in that same frame of mind after he would be summoned hence—a remaik that was met with laughter and cheers He made a few humorous sallies, and exhorted the people to work for a certain Conservative victory. The next speaker, Mr. David Absalom, macL, an attack on the sitting member. Mr. Richard Bateman also made a few re- marks. The next business was to select a comri.;tt, that the candidate could consult. After son." little parleying the following were selected:— Mr. J. Bateman, Ambleston; Colonel Lloyd, Treifgarne; Rev. J. Bowen, St lawrcice: Mr. C. Mathias and Mr. Moses Mathias, Lett-ek-stor.; Messrs. Frank Thomas and W. Phillips, Hays castle. The Rev. John Rees then gave the assemb! voters some scriptural advice on electioneering, admonishing them that when they promised their votes to Mr. Higgon they must not bresk their word. The usual votes of thinks to the chairman and candidate terminated' the proceedings.
HAVERFORDWESl BOROUGH SESSIONS.
HAVERFORDWESl BOROUGH SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on I Monday before the Mayor (Mr. James Reynolds), Dr. F. R. Greenish, Messrs. H. J. E. Price, C. C. Saies, and J. Rowlands. A FIRST OFFENDER. William St. John was summoned for being drunk and incapable on the 1st inst. He pleaded guilty, and as this was his- first offence he was mulcted in 2s. 6d. without costs. "A MAD LUNATIC" John Charles M'Lyon, of Milford-road, an old offender, was summoned for two offences. The first was for using profane and obscene lan- guage on January 3L Defendant pleaded guilty. P.S. James said at nine p.m. on the 31st ult. he saw the defendant in Market. street. He was annoyed by a dog, and he made use of the language complained of. He was under the influence of drink, but not so as to be charged with drunkenness. Defendant said the dog followed him up Market-street and attacked him. He was sorry he had used bad language. There was a second charge of being drunk and disorderly in Market-street on February 1. Supt. James gave evidence as to the defen- dant's condition on the day named, but the latter, though he admitted using profane lan- guage, denied that he was drunk. He had a pain in his ears which made him an absolutely mad lunatic. Defendant was fined 10s. and 7s. 6d. costs for the first offence and 10s. and 8s. 6d. costs for the second, and was told that next time he appeared before the bench he would be %ent to Carmarthen. SON ASSAULTS HIS MOTHER. A youth of apparently sixteen years or so, named W. J. G. J. F. Owen, of Barn-street, was summoned for assaulting his mother cn January 25. Mr. W. J. Jones appeared for the com- plainant, and said as the youth had pleaded guilty and expressed his sorrow he did not propose to offer any evidence, nor did the mother wish to proceed with the case further than to obtain protection for herself and to protect this lad from his own violent temper. He respectfully suggested, therefore, that the bench should adjourn the case for six months. The Clerk: Why not for a month. Mr. Jones iliought six months would be better; a month would soon expire, and it would do the defendant good to have the fear of the law suspended over him for a longer period. At the end of six months they wiDI21d see how he behaved, and if his conduet war- ranted it the bench could pasa sentence upojj him. Alter a consultation the Mayor said they would adjourn the case for a month, and, addressing the defendant, he warned him that if he gave any further cauie for complaint hr; J would be saveioly dealt with. ILLECAL EMPLOYMENT. Messrs. G. Pa'ne<r and Son, wine and spirit merchants, High street, Haverfordwest, were summoned by Mr. Ashworth, his Majesty's inspector of factc-es, for illegally employing after hours two young persons. There were two summonses—fur employing Martin Rog^s, under the age of si: r en, and Charles Jones, of the age of thirteen yeaits, after four o'clock on the 3rd of January. Mr. Ashworth detailed the case at consider- able length,, 'and said he had explained the matter to, and used the utmost forbearance with, Mr. Palmer, but he would have his own way. The elder boy was used to drive a pony and oart, and filled in his time washing bottdes, etc., in the warehouse ;and the younger boy was employed as an errand boy in the wine shop, and when he had nothing else to dc, he also employed his time in the bottling warehouse. He told how he had found these boys at work, and had warned Mr. Palmer, and after that he found them working at illegal hours. Mr. Keppel Palmer, the defendant, advanced the plea that the younger boy was engaged by Mr. Peters, his wine manager, but was told that inasmuch as he (Mr. Palmer) was the occupier he was held responsible. He then urged that what the boys did was voluntary, but when they were put in the box this plea was not sustained. The Bench imposed a fine of 2s. 6d. and lls. 6d. costs in one case, and 2s. 6d. and 7s. 6d. costs in the other. A WIFE'S MAINTENANCE. Matthew John, labourer, Milford, was sum- moned by his wife, Martha John, Merlin's-hill, Haverfordwest, for faiiing to contribute towards her support the sum allowed hfir on a maintenance order. Defendant said he could not afford to pay the order, but was willing t o pay 5s. a week or to take his wife back again. The wife, however, was unwilling to return to her husband. The Bench committed the defendant to Car- marthen for six weeks. THE ASSAULT ON A GRANDMOTHER. Thomas Jones, -tonemason, NoTth-gate, answered to his bail under remand for assault- ing his grandmother, Louise Richards, with a bottle. Supt James said the old woman was unable to appear, and he applied for a further re- mand Dr. Williams said he had seen Mrs. Richards that morning. She was in bed, and told him she was too ill to appear, said she felt too feeble and unwell to (ome to court. She was 82 years of age and very feeble. The effects of the blow had a great deal to do with her con- dition. The Clerk: Is she in danger of,her life? Dr. Williams: I cannot say at the present moment. Th3 Clerk: Is there any danger of erysipelis? Dr. Williams: I think not. The Clerk: If she dies can you say that being hit with the bottle will have contributed to her death ? Dr. Williams: It would be impossible that it should not. The only two possible sources of danger are tetanus or brain inflammation, but I do not consider that she is in any danger, only that we must remember that she is 82 years of age. The prisoner was further remanded, bail being accepted as before.
HAVERFORDWEST LICENSING SESSIONS.
HAVERFORDWEST LICENSING SESSIONS. The adjourned licensing sessions for the town and county of Haverfordwest were held on Monday at the Shire Hall, before the Mayor and other magistrates. Supt. James said he had no objections to put forward, but he had to ask the bench to adjourn for a month the case of the Stone- masons' Arms. He had seen Mr. Palmer, who had promised to make certain alterations, but had not done same. There was a low wall between the Stonemasons' Arms and the ad- joining house in such a position that the police could not have any control over it at all. This Mr. Palmer had undertaken to put right, but had not yet done so; and when he saw him on Saturday he said he had been prevented by host. The Mayor said the Stonemasons' Arms would be adjourned for a. month. All the old licences would be renewed except the Falcon Inn, the Butchers' Arms, and the Carpenters' Arms, which would be adjourned for a month, and referred to the licensing committee to draw up the amount of compensation on the ground that they were not required. The license of the premises occupied by Messrs. W. H. George and Son in Market-street was transferred from Thomas Arthur Rowlands to Mr. George junior.

WEDDINC AT LLANDOVERY.
WEDDINC AT LLANDOVERY. LEES-THOMA3. On Saturday morning last at the Pantycelyn Memorial Chanel, Llandovery, the marriage of Mr. William Edward Lees, of Snailton, Dale, Pembrokeshire, to Miss Elsie Margretta Thomas, the eeooad daughter of Alderman and Mrs D. Saunders Thomas, Belmont, Llandovery, and niece of Mr. G. Protheroe Davies, Peml-rok-e Dock, was du!y solemnized. Although the happy ev2int wa more or less of a private character, this did not deter a vast number of frierds from cong;egit ing in the sacred edifice to witness the interest- ing ce:emcny. The chapel had been tastefully decorated for the occasion with white floww* The bride, who wss given away by her fathe" (Alderman Thomas) wore a handsome costume of soft cream Venetian cloth, with a chic French-shaped hat to match, trimmed with valenciennes lace and tulle, while a long ostrich featheir and white heather adorned the side, giving a most charming and bridal effect. The gown wis a fhort-waisted semi-fitting bolero and goied-shaped kirt with scolloped folds, trimmed with Irish point embroidery. She was attended by her two sisters (Misses Muriel Prothero and L. Irenes (Dolly) Thomas), who made very pretty bridesmaids, attired in cream silk colienne triirmed with lace and ruchin. The full skirts wore gathered into the waist, and trimmed third of the way up with a band of gauging The bodice materiil was draped over a pointed lac-e yoke back and front, whilst below the yoke was a short bolero trimming formed of folds of yellow silk and edged with a frill of lace. The yoke was edged with a dciep frill of lace put on under a row of white silk ruchin. The full short sleeves were gathered to form a double puff, an.1 finished at the elbow with a frill of lace. They alio wore pretty cream tuscan st'.aw flop hats, trimmed with cream silk ribbon tulle, aid daffodils. Mr. Thomas Alger, of Newport, acted as bejt man. The nuptials weire performed by Dr T. E. Thomas, of Bailyglas, the popular pastor of the chapel. The service was fully choral and impressive, the choir rendering in good style the hymn, "The voice that breathed o'er Eden." Miss Jones, Post Office, proved a capable organist, and as the bridal party emerged from the chapel played Mendelsohn'9 wedding march in brilliant style. The newly-united couple were greeted with showers of rice and confetti. At the residence of the bride's parents a reception was held, and amongst those present were: Mr. and Mrs. Edmund Lees, Dale; Alderman and Mrc. Saunders Thomas,, Belmont; Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Swinburne, Pembroke Dock; Mr. Tom Alger, Newport; Mr. and Mrs. D. Rice Thomas, London; Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Harris, Norfolk; Miss H. Emlyn Thomas, London; Misses Muriel and Irena Thomas, Belmont; and ú. T. E. Thomas, Bailyglas. The brioo and bridegroom left by the two p.m. train for London, where the honeymoon will be 6pent. A- number of friends assembled on the platform, and tendered expressions of happiness and prosperity as the train steamed out. The bride's travelling dress was a pale green tweed costume trimmed with green velvet and gold buttons and a tweed paletote trimmed with opossum fur. Her hat was made of two shades of rose-coloured velvet and chiffon with flowing ostrich feather. The presents were of a numerous and costly description.

The investments are of a market- able. value in excess of the amounts standing in the Balance sheet. The Premises, owing to amounts written off from time to time, stand, we believe, at far less than their value, and the fittings and furniture have been wholly written off. The pro- vision for Bad and Doubtful Debts and Contingencies largely exceeds the amount esti- mated to be at present required. The Officers' Pension and Gratuity Fund, amounting to £ 151,295 Os 4d is included with the Current Deposit and other Accounts. Subject to these remarks, in our opinion the Balance Sheet is properly drawn up so as to exhibit a true and correct view of the state of the Company's affairs as shown by the Books of the Company.
