Fire at the Laundry.—About mid-day on Fri- day last. P.S. James, who was in the vicinity of Merlin's Bridge, saw a Hare of light burst out of the steam laundry. On investiga- tion, it was found that a tank containing petrol for the collar engine was leaking, and the petrol had caught lire causing a tremendous flare. Those in the building immediately set to work to extinguish the fire, but the .flame was so great that it was difficult to get near. Fred- erick Brown, a lad of 17, living at Freystrop, was severely burnt about the arms and face. Mr. Stephen Jenkins, the proprietor, was also severely burnt about the face and hands, and his two sons also were burnt in a slighter de- gree. In spite of the fierce names the men kept working and before the fire could do much damage they had completely mastered it. The amount of damage done was not great, chiefly confined to some match-boarding in the vicnity which was destroyed. Portfield Mission Room Harvest -Festival.- The harvest festival at St. Thomas' Church Mission Poem, Portlield, was held 0;1 Tuesday evening last. The mission room, which had been tastefully decorated with flowers, vege- tables, etc., by Mrs. Hilbers. the Misses Parkin- son, and Miss Meares. was crowded. The Ven. Archdeacon HiTbers took thesenieeand de- livered an impressive sermon. Mr. J. G. Summons presided at the organ. The singing was bright and hearty, and the .service was very much enj.oyed. The offertory, which was for the Haverfordwest Infirmary, amounted to £ 1 6s. 6d., which is an excellent sum consider- ing the size of the place. The harvest festival services at the Merlin's Briage Mission Room will be held on Friday, when the Ven. Arch- deacon Hilbers will take the service. St. Thomas' Harvest -Festival.-The harvest festival at St. Thomas' Church was continued on Sunday last. The church was crowded, both morning and evening, and the preacher for the day was the Rev. Archdeacon Hilbers. In the morning the service was very bright and the singing was excellent. In the evening Arch- deacon HilbeTs preached an impressive sermon which was much enjoyed. The music, as on the precceding Thursday, was excellent. The Magnificat and Nurrc Dinrittis was again sung to Maunder's grand composition, and the an- them "Thou crownest the year with Thy good- nÐSs" (Belcben), was excellently rendered. Miss Jennie Bailleux again took the soprano solo. Mr. J. P. Reynolds presided at the organ. This year's festival was altogether a success. Dalton and Lord at Haverfordwest.—The visit of Messrs. Dalton and Lord's Company termi- nates this week, after a stay of three .weeks, when they fulfill engagements at Narberth and Milford Haven. Throughout their visit they have presented first-class plays and have played them in a manner to establish them as favour- ites with Haverfordwest people. The acting of Mr. Haldane Dalton, the leading gentleman, has been admired by everyone, and it is the general opinion that a better actor has seldom visited Haverfordwest. They have also a strong comedian cast, including Mr. Bob Lord, who has an everlasting stock of wit. The singing of the ladies of the company has also been much admired, especially that of Miss Dena Druid and Miss Ciesy Scenior. Among their many plays "The King of Crime'" must be one of their specialities. The way in which Mr. Dalton takes the part of Rougarre (the King of Crime) is remarkable. Air. Bob Lord as the innkeeper was exceedingly amusing. This play is 1,y no means the only one in which the ac- tm? was good, and Haverfordwest play-goers much regret the departure of this company. Barn Street Council School.—On Friday last, the annual distribution of prizes at the above school took place. Thirteen boys had qualified for prizes by being present every time the school had been opened, and sixteen boys had qualified for certificates by gaming full marks a the terminal examination in July last.

The presentation was made by Mr. Price, in the presence of Councillor 1. Reynolds, J.P., and Mr. A. B. Williams. The boys, in two divisions rendered some songs, and the head- master (Mr. T. C.

Haroldston and St. Issels Harvest Festival.— Harvest festival services were held at Harold- ston Church on Sunday afternoon last. The church, which had been prettily decorated, was well filled. The preacher was the Rev. T. A. Harries, curate of St. Tnomas, Haverford- west, and his sermon was very impressive. The service was read by the rector of Freystrop, the Rev. John Williams. The musical part of the service was very successful. The Magni- ficat and Nunc Dimittis (Maunder) and the anthem, "Sing to the Lord of Harvest" (Sim- per) were nicely rendered by the joint choirs of Haroldston, St. Issels, and Freystrop churches Mrs Williams presided iit the-organ.

The instructor is Dr.. W- S. Griffith, and during his temporary absence Dr. Rcss is giving the lectures. The classes are being attended by the railway employees to- gether with the dock and town police. Con- sidering the number of accidents which occur irom time to time, the lectures should confer a decided boon to the community. The number attending is very gratifying, about 30 names being on the register. Coal Trimmer Injured.—The steam trawler "Britannia" (Mr. Birt), arrived in port on Fri- day morning and reported a distressing acci- dent aboard that morning at one o'clock. The crew were engaged hauling in the gear, and the ship gave a lurch. The trimmer, William Bryant, was on deck, and in steadying himself from falling lie laid hold of the guiding warp. Unfortunately this happened to be near a bol- lard, and before the man could realise his hold he was caught by the hand between warp and bollard, with the result that the thumb on his left hand was pulled right out of the socket, together with about nine inches of sinew. The "Britannia" was at once headed for Milford, and the poor fellow was brought ashore suffer- ing intense pain. He was taken to Dr Griffith' surgery, where his injuries received every at- tention and care. Bryant belongs to Cardiff, and is about 65 years of age. We deyan Harvest Festival Celebrations.— Harvest Services were held at the Wesleyal1 Church, Priory Road, on Sunday and Monday last.

Tuesday—Before his honour Judge Bishop. ADJOURNED. D. Mason and Sons, Walsal, applied for pay- ment of arrears upon a judgment summons for £17 3s. 8d., made upon Walter George, West Street, Fishguard, saddler and harness maker. Mr. A. B. Williams, who appeared for the plain tiff, said he was not prepared with evidence that day, but he could get it. His Honour You can get anything in the world, but you have not got it. He adjourned the case. DISMISSED. Thomas Ford and Co., of Swansea, sought to recover arrears of £116 Is 5d, upon a judg- ment order made upon William Henry Phelps, formerly of Merlin's Bridge. Mr A. B. Williams appeared for the plaintiffs, and Mr. W. J. Jones for defendant. Mrs. Phelps, the wife of the defendant, said her husband was a labourer, earning 17s a week, and had two children who were not earn- ing anything. His honour said he could not understand how the defendant could get into debt to such a heavy amount. It was clear he could not pay, and he should make no order. Mr. W. J. Jones Then you strike it out. His honour No, I merely make no order; plaintiffs can do as they like. SEVi^Lj., STRICTURES BY THE JUDGE. John B. Thomas, fruit merchant, Covent Garden, London, sought to enforce an order of the High Court for £36 4s. 5d. made upon E. C. Martin, Milford Haven, fruit salesman. Mr. W. G. Eaton Evans appeared for the plaintiff. The defendant pleaded that he had no means and that he was out of work. His honour made a fresh order for the payment of 5s. a month. W. C. Curran, accountant, 4, Gwydr Terrace, Swansea, sought to enforce a judgment order for £1 Is against M. C. Martin, the wife of the last defendant. His honour said he should make no order, because judgment had not been given in that court. If people living at Swansea choose to bring their actions in the Swansea County Court against defendants living in this district get judgment there and then come to this court to enforce it, he would not assist them. The plaintiff The order was given in Swan- sea. His honour Then go there to enforce it. He added tnat what many people were in the habit of doing was to come to this district from Swansea, Birmingham, Liverpool, London, and elsewhere to do trade with local people. They gave them credit, and when they could not pay they were put into court in London and other distant towns. Of course the (j-efendants were too poor to attend, and judgment went against them by default. The plaintiffs then came to that court to enforce judgment. He would be no party to that kind of thing. The case was struck out. ORDER MADE. George Davies, Garw, Fishguard, sued Thos. Harries, Hottipas, Fishguard, labourer, for 5s. The defendant's son admitted that his father earned 25s. a week. Mr. Evans (Fishguard) for the plaintiff, asked for an order for 10s. a week, which was granted. "GO TO BIRMINGHAM." Ceo. Chester and Sons, Birmingham, sou to enforce a payment order for £4 13s. 6d. upon A. L. Pnillips, Prendergast,, ironmonger. Mr. Evans appeared for the plaintiff. His nonour: This is a Birmingham case? Mr. Evans: Yes, sir. His Honour: Then go to Birmingham. AN ADMINISTRATION ORDER. Thomas Rees, labourer, Jubilee Terrace, Fish- guard, against whom judgment had been ob- tained by Mr. Cuthbert Thomas at a previous Court for £3 16s. 6d_, applied for an order of administration under the ^Bankruptcy Aets. Mr. Evans (Fishguard) appeared for the ap- plicant, and Mr. A. B. Williams represented the creditors. The applicant offered 10s. in the s2, and a list of debts was put in amounting to £23 4s. lid. After he had given evidence as to his means his Honour said he thought he should increase his offer of 10s. in the .s. Mr. Williams said he could show that the applicant was earning 47s. a week. His Honour said if the applicant did not ngreo to his suggestion he would not get his order. Mr. Evans made an offer of 15s. in the and paymnt at the rate of 6s. a month. An order to this effect was entered. Mr. A. B. Williams I consider that is very small indeed. His Honour Do you I don't. CAMROSE'CASE SETTLED. Frederick Llewellyn Jones, of Sonierby. Theisk, Yorkshire, had entered a claim against Cecil Phillips, late -of Loweston Farm, for £20 for a breach of agreement dated 1st October, 4.002, by which he undertook to keep and leave the dwelling-house in ihabitable repair. Mr. R. D. Gilbert&on said Messrs Eaton Evans and Williams were for the plaintiffs, and he was for the defendant. He had to state that they had arrived at an agreement which he proposed to hand to the registrar. He was glad to say his honour would not be troubled with it. His Honour I am very glad to hear it. THE HOUSEKEEPER'S LEGACY. Mary Mathias (formerly Mary Edwards, widow), the wife of John Mathias, Stonemason's Arms, Haverfordwest, sought to recover from William Joseph Scurlock, farmer, Yvalwyh'^ Castle, executor of the will of the late William Scurlock, Broadway, farmer, deceased, £130 18s. Id., being a legacy of £100, with interest, wages, etc. There was a counter-claim for £519 5s 6d., moneys which the testator had drawn from the bank while plaintiff lived with him as house- keeper, and also £35 for furniture. The plaintiff gave evidence as to entering the testator's service as housekeeper, at a wage of £20 a year. She alleged that Mr. Scurlock .did not pay her wages, but she received sums of money from him in presents. He also gavn her a pony, and she told the defendant in the hearing of her master that the testator had given it to her, and defendant said he was quite agreeable. She was not s.ure what her master's age was, but she believed he was S9 when he died on May 4th, 1904. Three weeks before his death £110 was paid over by Mr. Owen, of the National and Provincial Bank, and when Scurlock died .£57 10s. of that money was in the house. Ten pounds of that sum had been given by testator to Mr. Owen for a pre- sentation at Haverfordwest. She could not re- member now where the rest went to, but there was a good deal of expense. Cross-examined She usually went with the testator when he went to the bank. She could not say, however, that over £500 had been drawn during the two years. She had a letter from Messrs. Eaton Evans and Williams after her master's death, and as a result of that she went to see Mr. Eaton Evans. She told him she snould keep the money in the house towards her wages. At this stage the witness collapsed in a faint- ing stage, and the court was adjourned for luncheon. After the adjournment the witness again went into the box, and was cross-examined by Mr. Marlay Samson. At the interview she had with Messrs. Eaton Evans and Williams on May 19th she told them that her master liad given her in oresents somewhere about £100. She also told them that in the presence of two witnesses that testator told her that she was to have all the money there was in the house, about £57. She could only say as to the £500 that the I.ostator's own family might have had some of it. She bought a cow at his request for which she paid £14. She also told Messrs. Eaton EvanH and Williams that the testator gave her the furniture, which she did not want, and the pony. What testator gave was the furniture, pony. The testator gave her the furniture, This was the plaintiff's case. Mr. Samson said his honour had the facts pretty well before him. Practically it resolved itself into this claim for £100. His answer to i it was that at the time of the death of the testator there were sufficient funds in the house" to satisfy the claim, and therefore the plaintiff j had already received that amount, or in the alternative he was entitled to ask for the balance of the account of £110 paid to testator shortly before his death. Mr. Samson said he would call Mr. E. P-anon Evans to prove that on the plaintiff s own ad- mission when testator died there v. as £57 in the house. Hi's Honour said that is was undoubted. Mr. Samson: And that we are entitled to it on the counterclaim. His Honour said as to that, he should firsL have to hear Mr. J onj's. Mr. Eaton Evans then went into the box, and produced memoranda of what he took down when Mrs. Mathias came to see him after Mr. Scurlock's death. At that interview shr, d j the sum of £57 was in the house at tl • of the death, but she could not account ? difference between that sum and the ,.1.10 drawn from the bank. He afterwards applied to Mr. WT. J. Jones, solicitor, for payment of [ that £57j but be refused to hand it over. Mr. W. J. Jones: And in addition he took proceedings to recover this legacy. William Owen, formerly accountant at the National Provincial Bank, Haverfordwest, said in consequence of receiving a message from Mr. Scudlock he went out to see him. He instruct- ed witness to draw £ 110 for him, and the a witness asked how he should send out the money. Mr. Scurlock told him Mrs. Mathias would come to the bank for it the next day. She did so, and he paid her £ 100. The remain- ing P,10 witness was authorised to retain for a presentation which was being promoted in Ha- verfordwest. Robert William Scurlock, great-nephew of the testator, said after the death the pony was in Walter Roach's field, and had been for some months. After the death witness sold the pony, by his father's orders, for £ 5. Cross-examined: He knew the plaintiff claim- ed the pony. Mr. Samson said the case resolved itself into the difference between the c257 which plaintiff had in the house at the time of the death, and the legacy of £ 100. His Honour said he should give a verdict for the plaintiff for £ 108 14s. lOd. As regarded the counter-claim, he regarded that as a very ex- traordinary claim. They charged her with hav- ing received £ 500 odd which her employer drew out of the bank for the purpose of his own living. There was not a shred of evidence, however, that she had anything to do with the disposal of that. As to the £57 10s. which was in the house at the time of his death, he suggested that The plaintiff should hand this over to the defendant, and after some discus- sion Mr. Jones gave an undertaking, on behalf of his client, to do this, and the counter-claim was struck out. EXECUTORS AXD TENANT. Anna Jane Harries, Vergam Terrace, Fish- guard, sued Lizzie and Rosa Devonald, Wallis, Ambleston, the executors of their father's will, to recover £5 lis., balance of rent due January, 1902, and £6 17s., proportion of rent due on 29th September, 1905, making a total of £12 8s. Mr. W. J. Jones, Haverfordwest, appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. H. A. Jones'Lloyd, Pem- broke Dock, for the defendant. The plaintiff in her evidence stated that the L-5 lis. was made up of deductions of £ 3 for alleged repairs by the defendants, and five years at 9s. a year as per proportion of certain other deductions, total P,5 5s.; leaving one a balance of k6 17s., which defendants had paid into Court. The defence was that the deductions were properly allowed and assented to by the plain- tiff 'and her predecessor in title. Mr. E-iton Evans was called, and stated that lIe was in the habit of collecting the rent, and had rendered accounts to Mrs. Harries, and no complaint or objection had been made at the time to these deductions. Hio ilonour came to Ihe conclusion that the sum paid into Court by the defendants was Suitt pal(i sufficient to meet the plaintiff's claim, who was. therefore, non-suited.
Tiift FunrqJ. The funeral took place to-day. There was a short service at St. Martin's Church before the funeral cortege departed for Newport, Pent, where the body of the late vicar was interred.

< (Continued from Page 2). AT MILFORD HAVEN. Lord Kensington Declares Himdr MR MARLAY SAMSON ADVOCATES PREFER- ENCE. On Tuesday evening General Sir Reginald Pole Carew addressed a crowded room in the Masonic Hall, Milford Haven, and he met with a splen- did reception, and most attentive hearing. Lord Kensigton presided, and was supported by Sir. Reginald, Sir Owen Scourfleld, Mr. G. H. D. Birt, Col. W. R. Roberts, Mr. Marlay Samson, Mr. H. Gould (Tariff Reform League), Mr. W. Davies, Mr. Robinson, Mr. John Rees, Mr. G. S. Ivchvay, Mr. T. G. Hancock, Mr. F. W. Step- liens, Mr. J. J. Morgan, Mr. J. W. Wright, etc., etc. In the body of the room w„s an audience thoroughly representative. Lord Kensington, who had a very cordial re- ception, said his position was somewhat of a sinecure. He had to introduce to them a gentleman who was well-known to them ail, and he presumed they were glad to see him or they would not be there. Sir Reginald's career was a public and historial one, and it would be remembered when many of them were gone. He had cause to remember Sir Reginald, and a few years ago he would have only been too proud to take a command under him. He was sure that on the political platform, as in ac- tive service, Sir Reginald would show them the right way. Str Reginald, as they knew, was by name connected with one of the most historical monuments in Pembrokeshire. That connec- tion was quite sufficient for Pembrokeshire men to carry out their old motto, "Loyal to Pem- broke," by transferring Carew for Pembroke. He hoped Pembrokeshire would stick to the old motto, and give Sir Reginald a hearty welcome, and an attentive hearing, and learn from him he was ready to teach them. General Pole Carew, on rising to speak, was greeted with much enthusiasm. He began bv thanking' them for their hearty reception, and excused his presence before them in the capa- city of a prospective candidate by the fact that he desired to see this county governed in a constitutional, imperialist, and common-sense manner. For 37 years he had tried to serve his country as a soldier, and perhaps it might be said that he should now be digging in his garden, and plav about in his own way: but he came there because he loved his country. We were living in troublous times, when it was the duty oi every man to do all he could for the good of his country. Our defensive forces were not what they shc.u'd be. That was a serious position for any c-oantiy, and especially so ¡,1 this. He wanted them to get into the habit oi thinking imperially, and net set down what he had said to the mere fad of an old soldier. On the British Empire depended the prosperity and the very existence of this countiy. V e cuuld not longer say "let our colonies go." We had power and dominion, and if we had to have wealth and prosperity we must keep them: but we were not in the position we should be for the size of our empire; neither our land forces nor our naval forces were up tc the mark. Now that lie was no longer in the army he could say that, for his mouth was not closed. We bad not an army which was suffi- ciently big to cope with any Power in Europe. We pro's ed that in South Africa where our re- source., were strained to beat the Boers; but. if we had to keep oui country and empire we must do something better than that. Yet from a spirit of false economy bad as was our posi- tion at the time of the war, it was worse now. The army had been reduced by many battalions, and the Government had done what he must des- cribe as almost criminal, for they had reduced one arm of the service, the artillery, in which they were before this most deficient. The gal- lant general proceeded to criticise the new territorial army, which he supposed was to re- plact our volunteers, and would not, he was afraid, be any better, while it would be nunieii- cally weaker. He ridiculed the blue water school who argued that an invasion of this country was impossible. If we had a fleet three times the size of what we had it might, be so; and if we were invaded we had not an army i which could repel the invader. It was all very well to talk about patriotism, but no amount of patriotism could evolve an army out of untrained men. Government by party in this country, was a curse because it dragged men's minds away from real patriotism, and love of their country, down to what was good for party. Men's ears were tickled with all sorts of stories and pfomises, and the most absurd notions in order to gain a party triumph. On the ques- tion of the navy he pointed to the home fleet, and said how unfitted that was for any emer- gency until Lord Charles Beresford put his foot down, and got a portion of it added to the channel fleet. All these cheese-paring policy was the result of our ridiculous fiscal system. It was impossible for the Government to find money under our present fiscal policy for the proper maintenance of the army and navy, but they were, afraid to say so, and hence the ser- vices were being starved. Turning to the ques- tion of Tariff Reform, he said that Mr. Deakin, the Austialian Premier, was well-known to him personally, and that he had his authority for stating that he (Mr. Deakin) did not regard the late Imperial Conference as closing the question. Instead of that he had come to the conclusion that the voice of the present Govern- ment was not the real voice of the people, and that when this matter cauio up again at the next Colonial Conference, they would meet with a very different reception to what they did at the last. After dealing with the small and little loaf story, and asking his audience if they found bread cheaper or dearer after the promises made at the last election, the gallant general turnedt o the question of the House of Lords. It was, he said, our only safeguard against wild cat schemes, and the tyranny of a chance majority in the House of Commons. He had no fear of the future of the House of Lords. The people who ttok our interests n the question knew perfectly well that a second chamber was necessary, and that the House of Lords had used its power with rare discretion, and never in the face of the expressed wishes of the people. (Cheers). Mr. H. Gould, of the National Reform League, addressed the meeting at length upon the sub- ject of our fiscal policy. It was absurd to speak of this being a free trade country. We paid more upon our imports of food and to- bacco than any other country in the world. In the United Kingdom every man, woman, and child paid taxes of this kind to the tune of 15s 9d 2 per head; in America it was 14s lid and in Germany, 10s. Gd. We were taxed to the ex- tent of 30 million a year on our food stuffs and tobacco. On tobacco alone, out of every Is. 3d. paid for tobacco, Is d was in duty. He quoted a speech which Mr. Lloyd George made to a Chamber of Commerce, and said that the Presi- dent of the Board of Trade was getting very shaky on the subject of free trade, and be did not yet despair of seeing him on the same plat- form as Sir Reginald as an upholder of Tariff Reform. He urged them to abolish this so- called free trade which was the fetish of pedants of the type of Mr. Henry Campbel!- Banuernian and Mr. Haldane. The empire for the empire must be the empire's flag. (Cheers). Col. Roberts, in proposing a vote of thanks to Sir Reginald, said it was only due to the gal- lant General that he should make some public recognition of the splendid spirit which had prompted him to consent to again contest the Boroughs in the Constitutional and Unionist interest.' He had an opportunity of contesting a seat in his native county of Cornwall, but with rare unselfishness he had c: JllSenleo to again place his services at the disposal of the Boroughs. He hoped when the time arrived, that the electors would show how greatly they appreciated his self-sacrifice. It might, as the General had hinted on the face of it appear an arduous task, but he believed the majority would probably never occur again. Mr. John Rees seconded the vote of thanks and said how pleased they were at ilakin to have Lord Kensington at the head of the COll- servatiee Association of Milford and Hakin. Mr. Marlay Samson supported the resolution, and expressed the hope that the new president of the Milford and Ilakin Conservative Associ- at ion, would do for that association what he had always done for Pembrokeshire men in the hunting-fielcl-give them a good lead. He was sure they had all enjoyed Sir Reginald's in- spiring speech. A general election lay not so very far ahead, and it was well that they should be prepared for it. He was one of those who hoped the general election would come very soon. The Liberal party were engaged in the same old game of fitting up the cup, which they had practiced with such fatal result to themselves in former years. Referring to the Colonial Conference, Mr. Samson said during the last few months he had studied the ques- tion of Colonial preference with the very great- est possible care. He had read through a Blue Book of over 600 pages, and had put side by side what Sir Wilfred Laurier, Mr. Deakin, Sir William Lynde, Dr. Jamieson, and others had to say on the subject. He had weighed them against the arguments put forward by Mr. Lloyd George. He could not add and those of Mr. Winston Churchill, because there was 110 argument whatever in what that gentleman had said. He had (cue the conclusion that it we were to achieve any future greatness for this empire, it could only 'be achieved by the acceptance of the proposals the Colonial Prem- iers made at the conference. (Cheers). He hoped that he had shown that he had not hasti- ly or rapidly arrived at a conclusion. He could assure them that it was only after very careful study and observation. He was impressed in reading that report of the proceedings at the Colonial Conference with this one fact. Throughout the conference they got hold of the fact of Colonial brotherhood; that Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Sooth Africa, were pre- pared to treat each other in the most brotherly manner, and it was only the mother country which declined to respond, or to give ihe slight- est assistance, in any shape or form, so as to put matters in a better position than before the conference. He could not better express his views as to the aims and objects achieved by the Colonial Conference than by reading to them certain words which might have been altered by Mr. Chamberlain, but were in fact expressed by Mr. Lloyd George. After reading what the Welsh Leader had said upon the sub- ject he did not despair of seeing him before very long a supporter of the views so ably put forward by Mr. Chamberlain. The vote was then passed with acclamation. General Pole Carew thanked them for the kind way in which they had received him. Referring to their noble Chairman he said he once served in the same regiment as his father. Their political views diferred greatly then, and he was glad to see that the sonwas on the same side as himself. He believed that his father, were he now alive, would also be on the same side. Sir Owen Scourfield proposed a Vito o: "hanks to the Chairman, and referring to the attack upon the Lords said Pembrokeshire had two excellent specimens in Lord Cawdor and L. >rd Kensington. They knew what admirable work Lord Cawdor had done, and the House of Ken- sington had for four generations done good service to their country. Mr. Robinson seconded the vote which was caried with cheers. In replying the Chairman asked his hearers to learn to think imperially. The National Anthem closcd the proceedings.
Pembroke Dock. Last night (Thursday) General Pole Carew ad- dressed his fourth and final meeting, for fhe- present. The Temperance Hall at Pembroke Dock was well filled. Mr. G. H. D. Birt, the chairman of the Association, presided, and among those present were Sir Owen Scourfield, Mr. F. Lort Phillips, Mr. Marlay Samson, etc. The Chairman announced himself as a con- vinced tariff reformer, and he pointed out some of the advantages which would follow upon a change in our fiscal system. He alluded to the presence in the constituency of a number of gentlemen who called themselves socialists. He was a socialist in so far as he believed that every man should have work. He urged them not to be carried away by the specious argu- ments of these men. General Pole Carew had a cordial reception. He criticised the policy of the Government at some length. On the subject of the Dockyard he said that not long ago he wrote to a distin- guished admiral, and asked him if Pembroke Dockyard was not considered a good place for building ships, and was it not a very suitable place for a naval station. The reply he re- ceived from his friend the admiral was curt, and to the point. It was to the effect that the shutting up of Pembroke appeared to be part of the new scheme of Sir John Fisher and the admiralty. A vote of confidence io The General was car ried. 1ftUWWIIIJ

T' H AVE RFC SD WEST BOARD OF GUARDIANS. A meeting of the Haverfordwest Board or Guardians was held on W odnesday at the Union offices, Haverfordwest; Mr. S. W. Daw- kins in the chair. The report of the committee appointed to consider the question of whether a joint ap- pointment of a public vaccinator and of medi- cal officer should be made, now presented their recommendation. By a majority the committee recommended that a joint appoint- ment be made, and that the public vaccinator receive a uniform fee of 5s. per case, estimated to amount to about £ 200 a year. Mr. W. G. Eaton Evans regretted that the committee had not given reasons for their re- commendation. He found that about 750 vac- cinations took place every year, and taking the average days at 312, and the average calls ac- three for each case, the public vaccinator would have to attend, on an average, seven and-a-halt cases every working day. As the Union em- braced about two-thirds of the county it seemed to him to be perfectly absurd to expect one man to do that. He thought they should have some further information. Mr. J. S. Roberts, .as a member of the com- mittee which brought forward the recommenda- tion, assured Mr. Eaton Evans that the facts lie had quoted had "been taken into considera- tion. A majority of the committee were ot opinion that a public vaccinator could do the work by devoting a fojtnigh.t or three weeks to certain districts. The chief motive, however, was on the ground of economy. He movec that the recommendation be accepted. Mr. Sampson Williams argued that the eco- nomical argument was a fallacy. This 'WoulCl cost the Union at least .£200 per annum more. He moved an amendment that the recommen- dation be' not accepted. Mr. W. J. Owen supported the motion, as did Mr. J. Roberts, who, replying to Mr. Sampson Williams, said they had the ratepayers to con- sider as well as the doctors. Mr. Howell Walters said it was in the in- terests of the ratepayers that he opposed the motion. On a vote being taken, nine voted for the committee's recommendation, and 7 against. It was left to the chairman, the two vice- chairmen, and clerk to drait the advertisement.
Rural District Council. A meeting of this Council followed. FREYSTROP WATER SUPPLY. Mr. J. S. Roberts said he had seen Miss Ballinger re the well at Red Head, and she expressed herself as willing to do what the Council requested. There was a further letter from the Frey- strop Parish Council suggesting another water supply, and asking would it be possible to lay pipes to take the water to Freystrop Cross, a distance of 1,500 or 1,600 yards. Mr. W. G. Eaton Evans said to do that would entail a cost of about £ 250. After some discussion the surveyor was in-' structed to take the levels of the various sup- plies, and report as to which would be availably cO be carried in pipes. THE DYFFRYN ROAD. A letter from Mr. Lambert Gibson, engineer to (he G.W.Il., as to the condition of this road, was referred to the North Highway Committee. THE MEDICAL OFFICER. The Clerk said he had been unable to sena the proposal form to the Le-cai Government. Loard bccause only that day had the Guardians i.d the amount "1 the s>l;1r\ lie was instructed to take the necessary steps with p. view to making the appointment that day month. QUARRY HILL, HAKIN. The Clerk said he had Fieen the clerk to the Milford Council, who informed him that the quarry did not belong to them. Mr. J. T. Fisher said the quarry belonged tv Mr. Robert Warlow, Milford Haven. As it was admittedly in a dangerous state the clerk was directed to call the attention of the Milford Urban Council to ihe matter. LORD OF THE MANOR WANTED. The Freystrop Parish Council wrote with respect to North Myor, common land of some 40 or 50 acres in extent, that there were certain minerals being worked, and asking that the1 rights of the commoners should be safeguarded. Mr. Eaton Evans said the mineral rights, would be vested in the lord of the manor, who ever he might be, an] not in the commoners. He was informed that the lord of the manor was either Sir Charles Philipps or Miss Mansell, but he promised to inquire. The matter was left in abeyance pending these inquiries STENYTON WATER SUPPLY. A complaint was made from this Parish Coun- cil of the inadequate water supply, and it was left to the district representatives to inquire and repci t a month hence FISHGUARD DRAINAGE. A report from Mr. Portsmouth stated thai- he had given the contractor, Mr. Powell, a cer- tificate for £ 500. Mr. Eadcliffe, the clerk « f works, had applied for an increase^ of salary from 30s. to 42s., and the local c-omiiiittee had approved. Mr. Eaton Eva is: As they have to pay I move we agree to it. Mr. Fnher and this was agieed to.

DEATH OF REV. C. M. PHELPS. Yicar of St. Martin's, Haverfordwest. We have to record, with very sincere regret, the death of the Rev. Charles Martin Phelps, for many years vicar of St. Martin's, Haverford- west, the sad event taking place on Monday evening last. Mr. Phelps, up to the time of his last illness, was apparently in robust health. He had arranged to spend a three weeks' holi- day at his favourite resort, Newport, Pern., and did spend a week there. He returned on the Saturday to take the Sunday services, and seemed interested in the doings at Portfield Fair. On the Sunday morning early celebration should have been observed at St. Martin's, but as the vicar did not respond to calls his room was entered. It was found that he had been seized with paralysis. This, combined with a weak heart, eventually proved fatal. The news of his demise was received in the town with feelings of profound sorrow. Mr. Marlay Samson at a public meeting the same evening voiced the sentiments of his townspeople, and incidentally made a reference showing how, amid all our differences, the passing of a good, kindly, and amiable Christian gentleman calls forth true sorrow from all classes and creeds. Mr. Phelps was the last male descendant of the Martin family, who founded and lived on the Withybush estate for about 200 years. His grandfather died as far back as 1819. After his L death the eldest son, Thomas, came into the estate, and Mr. Phelps' father, the youngest of a large family of sous, resumed the name of Phelps. Thomas Martin, the last of the Withy- bush squires, was unfortunate in certain slave quarry speculations, and the estate passed out of the family, and imo the possession of the Owens, many years ago. Mr. Phelps lost his father at an early age. He was educated at the Haverfordwest Gram- mar School. On leaving there be held an ap- pointment for a short time at a school in Ire- land. From here he went to King's College, London, and was trained for the church, and ordained from there in 18G6. His first curacy was at Huddersfielcl for six years. Then he removed to Tenby as senior curate at the parish church, a post which he occupied for seventeen years prior to coming to St. Martin's, Haverfordwest, as vicar in 1888. He has always been a member of the ad- vanced High Ohmch party, and has endea- voured to carry out his views in all the churches with which he has been connected. At ST. Martin's he buih upon the foundations of the High Church order of service laid by his pre- decessor. the Rev. J. H. Popplewell, and the services have come to be considered perhaps the most advanced in West Wales. As a preacher, the vicar was always interest- ing, adopting a conversational style rather than attempting any great flights of eloquence or impassioned utterance. His sermons, although always well thought out and instructive, were, as a rule, delivered extempore, and were char- acterised by considerable earnestness. He va," a strong doctrinaire, and in his discourses de- \('+écl much attention to this aspect of Church rife. Outside his church work the vicar found many things to occupy him. He was an ardent naturalist, especially conchology and zoology, and his collection of shells and eggs was almost unrivalled. Some time ago he generously of- fered to give this to form the nucleus of a county museum, only stipulating that he should have the care of them during his lifetime. He had resigned the living, and at the -end of this year purposed spending his days in quiet retirement, in the pursuit of his favourite hobby. The living is the gift of the Society for In rd-moripm. the Preservation of the Faith. The Rev. E. Nicholson Jones lias sent as ihe following In Memoriam." The good, kind clergyman is gone: How swift, came Death to lay him low! Nor deemed we that his task was -done-- Not yet, thought we, would come the blow. Full many a year we knew had tlorl, But Time had left him hale and strong— el Still on his path his smile he shed; His heart was young, and loved sweet song. The prophet's mantle he had willed At wisdom's bidding to divest; The years with service he had filled, And contemplated times of rest. He krew not that of God's own plan His soul's desire was but a part, And as a stream to God's sea ran The wistful longing of his heart. To realms of higher service now His soul is called, for ever blest: To Heaven's wise will we humbly bow— 'Tis God's to give His servant rest. The good. kind clergyman is gone, We'll see no more his smile benign; But kindly thoughts, as time rolls on, Around his name will e'er entwine.
Requiem Mass. On Thursday morning a touching and impres- sive service was held in St. Martin's Church, a Requiem Mass being celebrated, for the re- pose of the soul of the late vicar. The Rev. Edwin J. Howells, vicar of Milford Haven, was the celebrant. The Mass was "Miseracordia in A" reverently rendered by a full choir, with Mr. Price at the organ. The clergy present, in addition to the celebrant, included xiev. T. G. Marshall, rural dean, Rev. D. Akrill Jones, and Rev. Cory James (Saundersfoct), who were robed; and in the body of the church the Ven. Archdeacon Hilbers, Rev. J. H. Davies, Rev. J. Hughes Parry. The church was well filled with a congregation thoroughly representative of the town and district. Vespers were celebrated at 7 p.m. on Thurs- day.
Meeting at Tenby. On Wednesday evening General Pole Carew addressed a large meeting at Tenby. Mr. F. Lo:t Phillips presided. General Sir E. Pole Carew declared that the present state of Ireland, through the poiry of the Government, was than it had been at any time since the Phoenix Parle murders of 1881, and that the Government had done their best to hand back South Africa to f he- Boers. The war was forced 011 us, but looking at the present circumstances it would have been better if we had not gone through it. He had recently been to Germany, and had seen the great preparrions going on there. There were miles upon miles of quay connected by railways with the interior, and he knew for a fact that two or three hundred thousand men could be embarked without the slightest difficulty. What these preparations were for he did not know, but he remembered how Bismarck brought about the war with France after years of pre- paration. At The present time we were net prepared to defend our oversea possessions against serious attack, and that was more if would be impossible to lepel an invader who set foot on these shores. A resolution of confi- dence in General Pole Carew was carried.
