PRESENTATION AT BURTON. 37 YEARS IN THE TRINITY SERVICE On Friday, the 15th instant, a very interest- ing event took plaoe at the residence of Mr. C. Ivemey, at Her:don House, Burton, where that gentleman became the recipient of a most handsome baroineteT, on the occasion of his retirement from the Trinity service. Mr. C. Thomas, on behalf of subscribers re- presenting the depot, lighthouses, and light- vessels, relieved at Neyland and Cardiff, pre- sented the testimonial, and said it afford- ed him the- greatest pleasure to present to Mr. Ivemey the barometer on his retirement after 37 year-; service-for the last 25 years as difc- trict clerk, and storekeeper. It would be re- membered that Mr. Ivemey was always ready to give a kind word and helping hand to all he came in contact with, and he was sure that he would carry their best wishes wit,h him into his private life. They hoped that he and Mrs. Ivemey would be long spared to en- joy their well earned pension. Mr. Ivemey, who was deeply touched by this act of kindness, in responding, said: Mr. Thomas, and shipmates, no doubt you all claim me as such passing through the different branches of the service. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this considerable act of kindness in presenting me with this hand- some testimonial. More especially, as I know that testimonials are of such rare occurrence in our service. During my 37 years in this Milford district, only once has a testimonial been presented, and, that was to our late sup- erintendent, Mr. Lile, on his retirement. In the naval, military dockyard and post office services, retiring employes often receive some tangible recognition in the shape of long ser- vice medals, or some otheo form; but, strange to say, in cur service, even after a period of 40 years or moie, with good conduct, a man retires from the honourable corporation's ser- vice without a scrap of paper to show that he has ever been in their employ. To you who represent this Neyland depot, lighthouses and light-vessels, as well as to many old friends at Burnham, Nash, Caldy, St. Annee, Spurns, Dungeness, Penlie, and ss. 1 m" debted for this splendid gift. Words fail me entirely to give full expression to my feelings, but I can assure yo. all that I shall ever cherish a regard for this barometer so long as I live, and hand it down as a heirloom in my family. (Applause).
COUNTY SCHOOL GOVERNORS. A meeting of the Pembroke Dock County School Governors was held on Monday, when there were present: Alderman A. McColl (in the chair), Mrs. M. A. Williams, Miss Maillard, the Rev. W. Evans, M.A., the Rev. W. Powell, and Messrs. S. B. Sketch and B. Hancock. NON-ATTENDANCE. It was reported that Colonel Ivor Philipps, M.P., who was appointed on the board of governors in February, 1905, had made no attendance, and his two years had now ex- pirel. It was decided to report to the county authority in the usual way. THE KITCHEN. Mr. Sketch had a resolution to his name with reference to the kitchen, but he said that he was not prepared to proceed with it at present. He thought that before they proceeded with either of the schemes they should ascertain from the county what help they would be likely to receive. He thought they might take it that the Board of Education had &ent a suggestion to the Education Council that certain assistance should be given in connec- tion with the kitchen. The Rev. W. Powell proposed that the clerk be instructed to write to the education authority asking what assistance they would receive. Miss Maillard seconded, and this was carried. HEATING APPARATUS. The Finance Committee recommended the adoption of the hot water heating scheme for the school at a cost of £ 225. The report of the committee was adopted upon the proposition of the chairman.

Hancock upon the death of hie wife.
FOOTBALL. PEMBROKE DOCK AND NEYLAND v. GOODWICK. This West of Llanelly League match on the Biers pool ground on Saturday roused consider- able interest, and attracted a very fair number of spectators. Both teams were so far un- defeated in the league, and, as anticipated, the struggle was a tough one, the visitors eventu- ally winning by the small margin of two points. The teams were as follow:— Pembroke Dock and Neyland: W. Owens, back; G. Davies, R. Harries, Phillips, and Morris, three-quarter backs; Owen and Good- rich, half-backs; Swan, Brace, Phoenix, Phelps, Richardson, Hughes, Davies, and Russan, for- wards. Goodwick: S. Jones, back; C. Phillips, G. L. Harries, G. Rees, and A. Phillips, three-quairter backs; Appledore and T. Phillips, half-backs; G. Harries, G. Dunstan, R. Roderick, P. Mahaney, G. Moses, A. Morris, S. Smith, and W. Williams, forwards. A strong wind was blowing diagonally across the field when the game commenced, and the visitors had the advantage of this. They had all the best of the exchanges in the first twenty minutes, and their forwards worked splendidly in the scrum, being much superior to the home lot. They also possess a pair of capable halves, and for a while the homesters were hard pressed. The four three-quarters, however, were in fine form, and Owens also kicked strongly. Goodwick continued to press, and presently G. L. Harries tried to dirop a goal, and missed by inches. A mistake by Owens let in the Goodwick men, and Williams scored a try, which G. L. Harries failed to con- vert. Then the homesters made a dangerous rush, but finished weakly, and the interval came with Goodwick leading by three points to nil. With the help of the wind the" Dock" for a time did better, but, as before, they were beaten in the scrums, and owing to the fumb- ling of the halves the three-quairters never got a chance of being set going properly. Good- wick gradually got the upper hand, and after a series of scrums inside th3 home 25 the ball was carried oveir the liM from a Ecrum, and another try scored. This also was not con- verted. The homester. now began to show to better advantage, and their forwards made som3 fierce ru 3h s, but usually finished up with kickiiIlg the ball to an opponent and allowing him to touch down. Presently, how- ever, Owen snapped up the ball and took a shot for goal, and, to the delight of the spec- tators, the oval went between the posts safely. The rest of the game was strenuously con- tested, but eventually time came with the scores:—Goodwick, two tries (six points); Pembroke Dock and Neyland, one dropped goal (four points).

PEMBROKE BOARD OF GUARDIANS. THE ITCH AT THE WORKHOUSE. DOCTOR CRITICISED. GUARDIANS IRRITATED. A meeting of the Pembroke Board of Guard- ians was held on Thursday, when there were present Mr C F Egerton Allen (chairman), Mrs Lovvless, Mrs. Grieve, Mrs. Williams, Messrs. B. Hancock, B. G. Roberts, J. Davies (Pembroke Dock), J. Davies (Knowles), W. Gibbs, J. Hitchings, J. W. Penney, G. Thomas, J. Thomas, J. M. Thomas, C. Mathias. OUTBREAK OF THE ITCH. Mr. Hancock said that some of them last Thurcday went into the nursery at the Work- house, and found that some of the children were suffering from the Itch. They were in- formed that they had been suffering for a per- iod of seven months. If that was the case, why had this not been reported or taken notice of before. It was a very long period indeed for a disease to bo prevalent in the House, and no notice taken of it. The Chairm-ain remarked that they had the doctor's report a fortnight ago. Dr. Williams then reported that some of the children in the nursery werre suffering from scabies and ex- zema, and that owing to lack of accommoda- tion for • lating purposes, he had been unable to stamp Lot he disease. The Board consi- dered iit a serious matter and asked the Visit- ing Committee to make enquiries, and give any orders they thought necessary to be carried out. The Visiting Committee had met the next day, and the doctor told them that the cases had been going on since June last. They had got, worse and better and worse again, and now they had got into such a state, that he could no longer cope with the disease, and so came to the Board for assistance. The Visiting Committee came to ihe conclusion that what was necessary was isolation, and they decided to use the chapel for purposes of isolation. It was necessary to make a new entrance into the chapel and stop the present entrance from the dining hall, so the present doorway had been closed, and a new entrance had been made. It was decided to put the sound children in the chapel and keep the ill children in the nursery. He believed at that moment the sound child- ren were in the chapel. The Master That has been done. The Chairman said that they had also a further report from the doctor on the matter, which he would read. The report stated that nine children and four women had been affected. It proceeded to state what had been done to isolate the children, and added that there had already been a considerable improv- ment. All the necessary arrangements for disinfection of clothing etc, had been made, and it was hoped! that the disease would be stamped out in a very shoit time. On February 10th he had found three more boys suffering from the same complaint, and these had been isolated. The chairman: Where are they isolated? The master: In a spare loom in the lock ward. The chairman said that was how the matter stood up-to-date. Thd point Mr. Hancock made was a very important one, and perhaps he wished to ask some more questions. Mr. Hancock remarked that he had made enquiries of the, nurse, who told him that some of the children hadx the itch when she came, and she did not know what it was. By and bye she enquired and was told. It seemed to him very strange that a period of seven months should elapse before an outbreak of this sort was brought to their notice. Per- haps they had better have the nurse in and inquire about her statements. Mr. G. Thomas said that he never heard of a case until they went round the House last Thursday. He should like to know how long it had been going on Dr. W. R. E. Williams: Six or seven months I should think. Mr. G. Thomas: Have you recorded the num- ber of visits you have made to the House? Dr. Williams: They are all on the book. Mr. G. Thomas. I see you have been very attentive in visiting the workhouse. I sup- pose you did not go to the nursery every time. Dr. Williams: Not every time. Mr. G. Thomas: The nurse makes a state- ment that you have not been there often? Dr. Williams: I have been there every week. Mr .G. Thomas: She says you have only been there four times in twelve months? Dr. Williams She has' not been here twelve months. Mr. Hancock said that he understood from the nurse that the doctor had not been there ofbn. Some discussion took place upon the sug- gestion of Mr. G. Thomas, as to whether nurses from the infirmary could not have been sent to help in the nursery. The doc- tor said that the nurses had enough to do, and there were also four women helping the nurse or industrial trainer in the nursery. Later on Mr Hancock proposed that they call the nurse before the Board. Mr. C. Mathias: The doctor's statement is unsatisfactory. The chairman said that he, could not under- stand why the doctor did not inform the Board before. Dr. Williams: There is no rule, laid down for me to report such a matter to the, Board. Mr. G. Thomas seconded Mr. Hancock's pro- posal, and the Board agreed. The chairman then asked if there was any danger in having the nurse in the room. Mr. Hancock said that he had been informed that there has, and1 that the itch was con- tagious. He would therefore withdraw his proposition. Mr. Penney said that one thing that had been overlooked was that the clothes of these children had been going to the wash-house and washed with the other clothes. Tha master said that they were well boiled and that was a good cure. The chairman considered it a serious matter and said that it would' affect their opinion of the doctor's capacity and attention to duty. The doctor's views seemed to be that no duty lay upon him to report to the Board this very serious outbreak and that by keeping it to himself for six months no fault could be found with them. He thought that if the doctor had any statement to make he had better make it, but it he thought It better, an oppor- tunity would be given him to prepare him- self. Dr. Williams said that the reason he did not report the cases was that he did not want to make a bother. He had had cases from time to time, and had been able to deal with them, but this time he had not been able to stamp it out. The nursery was not a very suitable place, and it was very badly ventil- ated. It was hardly the sort of place where he could deal properly with the cases, so he re- ported the matter to the Board. He had read through the rules and duties of the medical officer of the workhouse, and he could find nothing laid down about reporting any dis- eases, except of a dangerous nature. If he reported these oases he should have one every week. The chairman thought that the case should be carried further, and -suggested the appoint- ment of a special committee to make enquiries into the matter. Mr. Hancock thought that sufficient had been done. Notice had been, called to the matter and that was what hie wished. He did not wish to be vindictive, or for the punish- ment of any official. He thought that now the matter might be allowed to drop. Mr. G. Thomas said that he had looked over the porter's books and he found that the doc- tor had been very attentive to the House. Mr. J. Davies (Knowle): Perhaps the less said about a disease of that sort, the better. Mrs. Williams asked if the doctor thought the nursery was fit for the children when the others had recovered? Dr. Williams replied that as the children recovered they would be transferred to. the chapel, and when they were all free from the disease, the nursery would be cleansed. He should say that it ought to be altered as well. Mr. G. Thomas: Do you think it a healthy place for children? Dr. Williams No, very unhealthy. The chairman: I am astounded that when such evil conditions exist it is nobody's busi- ness to tell us anything about it. After some further discussion Mr. Mathias moved that a report be sent to the Local Gov- ernment Board. This, howevetr, found no sec- onder, and the matter then dropped. THE PORTER. An application for the post of porter was read' from Mr. W. J. S Brown, who enclosed excellent testimonials. Several guardians, however, doubted as to Brown's having sufficient physical strength to do the work occasionally required, and Mr. Penney mentioned that Morse, the present

SHOCKING PEMBROKE CASE. ACCUSED COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. At a special sitting of the Pembroke Borough Bench, on Friday. (Before the Mayor (Council- lor J. Lawrence), Messrs. F. P. Tombs, S. W. Willing, and J. Rowe). Thomas White, an ex-soldier, living at the Green, Pem broke, was again brought up in custody charged with criminally assaulting Nina Thomas, aged 13, on January 15th. Mr. R. D. Gilbertson appeared to prosecute, and said that having regard to the serious effects of the offence committed, it had been decided to preier the more serious charge of rape against accused. Martha Evans, wife of Oliver Evans, of the Green, Pembroke, said that Nina Martha Thomas, was her daughterr by her first mar- riage, and was aged 13 years and one month. On Tuesday, January 15th, she sent her daughter to White's- with some rags. That was about four o'clock. About 6.30 that evening, witness was getting the child ready to go to the Salvation Army practice, when she missed her Tam o'Shanter. Witness sent her to ac- cused's to see if she had taken the hat with the rags to him. She came back at 7.30 that evening with one of the officers of the Salva- tion Army. Witness did not notice anything wrong, but two days later the child said she felt poorly. Next day she cried to stay home from school, but went. She seemed' to get worse, and on January 21st, witness went to the doctor to get a certificate to stay away from school. Witness thought the child had a cold, and Dr. Style gave the certificate. The next day she went to Dr. Williams, who saw the girl, and on January 31st, she again sent for the doctor. Dr. William's assistant, Dr. Browning, examined the girl, and told her the result. Dr. Williams shortly afterwards came, and also examined her, communicating the result to witness. Witness went to P.S. John, and later on took out a warrant for the arrest of accused. Her daughter had been ill ever since. The evidence of the little girl was next taken As she was still too ill to stand, she was al- Lowed to give hlei* evidence sitting. She de- scribed how on January 15th, she went to White's house with some rags, and how later on she went to ask if her Tam o'shanter had been in the rags. Accused came to the door, and in reply to bar question, he replied that the Tam o'shanter was in the house if she would go in and: fetch it.. He then said Come here," and caught hold of her arm and push- ed her into an outhouse, where he struck her head against the wall, and then put his hand over her mouth. She saw Mrs. White in the house;, but did not tell lwr what had oc- curred. She afterwards got her hat and went to the Salvation Army practice. She after- wards suffered! considerable pain, but did not tell her mother, because .she was afraid' of ac- cused. On January 31st, however, Dr. Brown- ing and Dr. Williams examined her. In the interval before this happened, she went down to White's with some rags. He asked her if she had been to the doctor's, and added "Mind, don't you &ay anything about it." Dr. W. R. E. Williams spoke to examining the child, and finding that she was suffering from a loathsome disease. He questioned the child who afterwards made a statement. On the same day witness saw White in the polico station and examined him, with the result that he found accused was suffering from a disease of the same nature as the child. The con- dition of the child up to a few days ago had been very grave and witness had hardly ex- pected her to pull through. She was now recovering. Nelly Partridge, a "lieutenant" in the sal- vaion army, P.S. John, and P.C. Wheeler, also gave evidence. The latter said tha-C after the first remand accused told him that it was no use telling a lie. He supposed he would get five years for it. Accused who had nothing to say, was com- mitted for trial at the next assizes.

COLLISION IN THE BRISTOL CHANNEL. FOURTEEN LIVES LOST. Fourteen lives were lost as the result of a collsion between the steamer Orianda, of Lon- don, and the steamer Heliopolis, of London, in the Bristol Channel on Sunday morning. There was a storm raging at the time. The Orianda was bound for Spezzia, in Italy, with a cargo of coal, and at about 12.30, according to one of the survivors, the Heliopolis crashed into her. The cre.v was quickly mustered and cried for help, but the colliding steamer stood off and did not, it is alleged, render aid. The Orianda went down in about half an hour, and the crew of nineteen jumped into the water, Captain Williams and Mr. Aitken, the chief engineer, being the last to leave the sinking vessel. Five were rescued, three by the Barry Pilot cutter, Britannia, and two by the ss. Eleba, of Stockholm, but Captain Williams, who was seen drifting away, shouted that he could not Teach the lifeboat. One of the men died in the boat, and the survivors, who were in an exhausted condition, had been in the water for about two hours. They had been fitted with lifebelts. Those who perished were Captain Williams, of Borth, Cardiganshire; G. Jones, mate; R. Hunter, second mate, Cardiff; John Hansen, second engineer, Christiania; D. Lambros, Cardiff; J. Volender, Cheltenham; H. Garcia, Cardiff; C. Juscata, Cardiff; George Vonofra- belos, Cardiff; John Morris, Cardiff; T. David- sen, Cardiff; J. Tallis, Cardiff; S. Stener, Liver- pool; and H. Jones, Bristol. We understand that the hull and machinery of the Orianda were insured for P-4,500 with mutual clubs.
A MR. MOSELY'S VISIT TO CANADA. Arthur Mosely, C.M.G., in writing to the "Times" on the present visit of the British Teachers to Canada, which he organised, refers in glowing terms to the great opportunities of the country for Englishmen in other respects "Whilst on the subject of Canada, may I be allowed to again emphasise the great opportu- nities that this magnificent territory offers to our fellow-countrymen who are willing to work on the soil or in the cities ? Skilled labour of every description is wanted, highly paid and liberally treated, whilst children have educa- tional advantages that are unknown in this country. When will the public wake up to the opportunities that await every class of enter- prise in the Dominion? At present others more enterprising, more alert than ourselves are largely reaping its benefits, and I suppose, as usual, we shall wake up to the posibilities of this great Empire when all the land is gone and we can only get together either the scraps that others have left, or what we can then purchase at high prices!" Swansea's fine unbroken record for the sea- son was broken on Saturday at Leicester, when the Midlanders piled up a heavy score against the Welshmen. The following gentlemen have been placed on the commission of the peace for the county of Carmarthen :—Mr. Daniel Stephens, Arlais, Kidwelly, and Mr. Henry Jones Thomas, Pen- rhosucha, Llanfynydd. Mrs. Mary Jones, of Albion House, JLlannon, Cardigan, who died on May 22 last, wife of Mr. Thomas Jones, master mariner, left estate, in- cluding property vested in her as trustee, valued at £ 1,220, and administration of her estate has been granted to her husband. A well-known Swansea hotel manageress,, Mrs. Jones, nee Grainger, who had previously been manageress of the Cameron Arms at Swansea, has died from consumption and the breaking of a blood vessel at her residence, the White Rose Hotel, WTalters-road, Swansea. The concert which the Baroness Cederstrom (Madam Patti) had kindly consented to give for the benefit of the Swansea Hospital is to take place on September 26 at the Grand Theatre which has been placed at the disposal of the hospital authorities by Mr. Brooks, the resident lesse and manager. Almost ever since its formation, many years ago, the Cardigan Conservative Club has been inconvenienced by its restricted accommodation This, however, is now about to be altered, Mr. J. V. Colby, Ffynone., having placed at the disposal of the committee, at a nominal rent, the commodious premises in the town, of which he is the owner, known as Tintern Cottage. At a meeting of the club members, under the presidency of Mr. Henry Evans, it was resolved to accept Mr. Colby's offer with thanks. The new premises, which are to be fitted up for the purpose, will contain large reading rooms and billiard rooms. The club will then be known as the Cardigan Imperial Club.

The chairman mentioned that they now had a sum of R,1,740 in hand, and he proposed that they pay a 2d. raVj amounting to Z998 to the county and a bill for £ 310 for lunatics at the asylum. This was carried. THE CLERK'S TYPEWRITER. The chairman said that some four years ago the clerk bought a typewriter for k20, and. re- cently it had had to be repaired, which had cost £ 4. Though the clerk actually bought the typewriter for himself, it had been used al- most entirely for rhe work of the Board, and lie now asked the Board to pay for the repairs. In reply to Mr. G. Thomas, the clerk said that he also used it for the Rural District Council business. The chairman pointed out that the Board al- lowed the clerk whatever paper, etc. he re- quired, but he had to provide his own clerk. It was a question as to which category the typewriter would come into. Mr. Mathias said that they paid Mr. Jones for his time. The clerk got the typewriter for his own convenience, and that was his look out. He moved that it be not paid. Mr. J Thomas seconded. Mr. G. Thomas moved and the chairman seconded that the bill be paid, and the amend- ment was carried by 12 votes to 2.
