HAVERFORDWEST. Tivyside point-to-point steeplechases will be ilver the same ground as last year, about the end of March. It is probable that a farmer's race will be included. PROMOTION. Mr. Vaughan, of Prendergast, clerk in the office of Messrs. Price and Sons, has received an appointment as assistant to the magistrates' clerk at Wimbledon. He leaves Haverfordwest to-morrow to take up his appointment. We congratulate him upon his promotion. The Pembroke Imperial Yeomanry, under Col. Meyrick, C.B., will assemble at Penally for the summer training on May 21st (Wirt Tuesday), and be dismissed on June 7th. The Glamorganshire Imperial Yeomanry, under Col. Wyndham-Quim, will train at Penally from May 28th to June 14th, so that the two regi- ments will be in camp together for some days. In addition to the Yeomanry, two battalions of militia will go into camp in the neighbour- hood of Tenby. At the dog show held in the Agricultural Hall, London, Mr. T. H. Rule Owen was award- ed reserve prize with a very promising fiat coated retriever puppy of his own breeding. There were sixteen entries in the class. In the Toy Spaniel section of the same show Dr. Mills was similarly placed with a young Pekingese bitch, Lady Concert." TEMPERANCE MEETING. The annual entertainment in connection with Hill Park Band of Hope, was held on Wednesday evening. The. meeting was pre- sided over by Mr. Morgan, Bridge Street, who made a few appropriate, remarks at the com- mencement. Owing to the inclemency of the weather there was a sparse audience. The programme proved very interesting, and re- vealed some talent amongst the little ones. Great praise is due to Mr. D. J. Edmonds and helpers for the way in which they had trained the children. It is to be hoped, as the chair- man remarked, that amongst the little ones who sang and recited so well will be many of the leading men and women of the near future. The accompanists throughout the evening were Miss Garnon and Miss Lloyd, Dark Street, of whom special mention should be made. The programme was as follows:—Chorus, "Tie on the ribbon of blue"; recitation, Master Willie Phillips; solo, Miss Annie James; recitation, Miss Annie Williams; action song, The Girls; recitation, Master John Hughes; solo, Miss Agnes Phillips; recitation, Master Freddy Daye; chorus, "A Song for the Temperance Army"; recitation, Miss Myfanwy Hughes; solo, Miss Alice Noott; recitation, Master Bertie Morgan; action song, The Boys; recitation, Mr. James Rees; solo, Mr. Jack Edwards; dialogue, Miss Thomas and Miss Daye; recitation, Miss Clara Owea; chorus, "To all you ladi-as yet unwed"; musical monologue, D. J. Edmonds; action song, The Girls; recitation, Miss S. Thomas; solo, Miss Bessie Davies; recitation, Mr. Ted Wassell; chorus, "A Host with Ban- i neTs"; doxology. The proceeds of the bazaar recently held for the proposed school alterations at Albany Congregational Church, amount to over k330. Mr. Seymour Allen has fixed the 11th April r the point-to-point races. There will be five races: open race; open race under 15 hands; open race for horses hunted by ladies; Mr. Seymour Allen's Hunt cup; and farmers' race. PIANOFORTE RECITAL. Miss Ellinor Lloyd's very talented pianoforte recital at the Salle Erad on Tuesday, February 19, gave intense pleasure to a most appreciative audience. The programme chosen appealed to real lovers of music. Miss Ellinor Lloyd's rendering of Chopin (especially), Liszt, Rubin- stein, etc., showed remarkable execution, combined with great delicacy of touch and sympathetic feeling. Miss Lloyd is undoubtedly a very fine pianiate, and one who should be known far and wide. She is of Welsh birth, has studied in Brussels and Paris with Moszkowshi, and in London with Oscar Beringar, etc. Mr. Charles Bennett's singing gave much pleasure. BESTHEDSA ANNUAL. The annual tea and entertainment at Betlicsda last evening was well patronised. The tea was well attended, and the spacious chapel held a large audience for the entertain- ment. An excellent programme had been arranged. Mr. H. F. Walker, A.R.C.O., opened with an organ solo, and acted as accompanist. Songs were rendered by Miss Annie James, Miss Noot (with flute obligato), Mr. Isaiah Reynolds, and Mr. S. Bowler; Mr. Bartlett contributed a flute sola, and Mr. W. Walker a piccolo solo. Instrumental selections were given by Messrs. Colin Jenkins, E. Garrett, A. Cook, and F. Lewis (violins), George Lewis ('cello); Mr. Bartlett (flute), and Mr. Walker (piano). The selections consisted of Uni Fete a Trianon" and (a) Allegro Moderato (b) Tempo di Minuetto (c) Rondu." The Male Glee Society, under the direction of Mr. J. Adams, contributed A Little Church" and. The Crusaders." SENT TO PRISON. At the Shire Hall on Monday (before Mr. L. Roberts and Mr. John Rees), a tramping labourer named Thomas Jones was brought up on a charge of having been drunk and dis- orderly on Saturday afternoon.—P.S. James told the court that prisoner was staggering over the footway in Victoria-place, and as he used very bad language-obscene and profane--he was taken into custody on the Salutation- square.—Prisoner expressed his regret for what had occuned, said it was his first offence, and that he had been working with a farmer named Mr. Williams, about four miljs from Haver- f cirdw est. -Inspecto- Thomas mentioned that on Friday afternoon Mr. Joseph Thomas's coachman came to complain that prisoner was creating a disturbance in Quay-street, but witness took compassion on the prisoner and saw him safely down at Mr. Power's lodging- house.—Mr. Roberts: And this is his conduct on the following day.—In answer to the Bench, Inspector Thomas said that if prisoner were fined, and he was given time to pay, he would very likely clear out of the county, a,, ct another warrant would be added to the large iiiin-Ler which had been N f eu ted. -T,i, magistrates decided to fine prisoner 5s., in- cluding fosts, but as he only had lid. in his possession he was unable to pay the ani consequently he went to Carmarthen to- sc/en days' hard labour. REV. ALEX ROGER AND CATHOLICISM. Three very interesting lectures on Catholic- ism were delivered on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday last at the Temperance Hall, by the Rev. Alex Rogar, honorary secretary of the National Protestant Federation. The lectures were got up in order to start a fund for a memorial to perpetuate the memory of William NichoHs, the Haverfordwest Christian Martyr. On Monday night the Rev. W. Mendus occu- pied the chair, and Mr. Roger spoke on the subject Why we cannot join the Church of Rome." The lecturer maintained that the true Christian life can never run in a Catholic groove. On Tuesday night Mr. R. Sinnett took the chair, and Mr. Roger spoke on Some benefits of the Reformation." The Reforma- tion was, he said, not "made in Germany,' but was the direct result of Wycliff's piety and Sawtre's martyrdom. The Reformation was no new faith, but a re-statement of old truths. Above all other benefits conferred by the Re- formation, one stood out from all the rest, and that was that the Reformation gave England the Bible.—On Wednesday night, Rev. 0. Jacobs occupied the chair, and the lecturer spoke on ".The Monastic Alien Peiil, and the evils of the present Conventual system." The lec- turer failed to see why England should be made the dumping ground for foreign outlaws in the guise of monks. It was as if England had a sign board on her coast; "Rubbish shot here," and the foreign monks take advantage of this, and dump themselves on Englishmen. The lecturer went deeply into the subjects of convent "sweating" and convent laundries, and said that the London white" sales, are generally composed of garments made by "sweated" labour in French convents. He also spoke fully of penance, scourges, and con- fessionals. He then showed tne increase of convents and monasteries in England and Ire- land, from 52 in 1850 to 918 in 1903, and 1,066 in 1906. The lectures were poorly attended, the collections failing to cover the expenses. After the meeting on Wednesday night, a com- mittee was formed to go into the subject of the memorial more deeply. Mr. Richard Sinnett kindly consented to act as secretary.
