FISHCUARD. Convalescent.—Everyone will be gratified to know that Mr. W. R. Williams, Inspector-Gen- eral of Irrigation, Cairo, Egypt, is now ap- proaching convalescence after a trying opera- tion for appendicitis. For Strumble.—On Wednesday afternoon Mr. E. W. Rees, head-master of the National Schools, accompanied his boys to Strumbu Head for an object-lesson on the working of the intricate but beautiful mechanism. The day was fine, and the outing afoot was keenly enjoyed. The exhaustive description in last week's "Guardian," of the lighthouse formed the text-book and reference. Four Flashes.—The reflection of three of the four flashes from the Strumble Head "lantern" are visible evening at Fishguard and the sur- rounding district. Of course, the side of the light facing seawards is not visible, hence the impression that the flashes are but three in number. It is the fact, nevertheless, that the light gives four flashes every fifteen seconds. Sad Demise—There died in France a week ago Miss Kathleen A. Day, formerly of Whit- church, near Cardiff, niece of Mr. S. P. Jones, of the "Western Mail," in her thirtieth year. The deceased, who was highly accomplished, was a frequent visitor to Fishguard, of which her mother is a native, and where many near relatives still reside. Among them are Mr. Enoch Davies (Lower Fishguard), Mrs. Jones (High Street), and numerous others, and natur- ally deplore the loss at so early an age of a most affable and winning personality. Deceased was an especial favourite. St. Mary's.—Last Sunday the vicar (Rev. W. Evans, M.A.) delivered two pointed and able sermons embodying a few plain home truths. He said that people usually preferred hearing nice things spoken rather than those of reproof. Referring to the Saints' Days, especially that of St. Paul, which was commemorated the pre- vious day (Saturday), he opined that if it had been St. David's Day the Church would pro- bably have been filled, yet while the one they coinniemorated was a red-letter day in the annals of the Church and Christendom, that of St. Davids was only a black-letter day. They heard much of Welsh patriotism—he doubted not he had as much Welsh blood in his veins as any present-but was it real and true pa- triotism or merely sentimentality? St. Paul had left a far deeper impress upon the Chris- tian world than any other Saint, and it was their duty as Christians to commemorate the days set apart for that "purpose. A branch of the National Council of Church School teachers was formed at the Fishguard National Schools on Saturday, January 25th, 1908. The branch represents the whole of the certificated church school teachers in the dean- ery of Fishguard, and its chief object is to provide machinery for givnig rapid and effec- tive voice to the collective opinion of all or- ganisations of church teachers on questions affecting the interests of religious education. It was felt to be very necessary that an associ- ation of this character should be formed with- out delay, so that a teacher, thoroughly re- presentative of the church school teachers throughout the diocese, may be elected in time to take part in the work of the National Council in its action in regard to the coming Education Bill. That measure, there is good reason to expect, will gravely affect both the actual livelihood of many teachers now at work in church schools, and those spiritual and moral intereests of the children entrusted to them which have always been regarded by them as of paramount importance. Mr. Mark Hale, Tredavid School, Dwrbach, has been ap- pointed secretary. Saturday "Smoker."—Last Saturday evening's "smoker" at the National School was excep- tionally well attended, and the entertainers were in good form. The vicar opened the proceedings with some cheery remarks. The Welsh Anthem was followed by a piano solo by Mr. Bert Lambert and a reading by the vicar. Mr. Pyle added a recitation, "The Re- cruit's Reply to the Colour-sergeant," in g(;,¡j style. Messrs. Rogers and Pitt were associated in a melodion and piano solo effectively. The vocalists were: Messrs. S. J. Pitt (who also accompanied with Mr. Lambert), W. Thomas, F. Rogers, Bob Smith, W. R. Evans, Roach, and Howarth. Miss Towner kindly added to the evening's enjoyment with a nicely rendered song. Coffee was in much demand, being dis- pensed by Mrs. Evans (Vicarage), Mrs. Towner, Mrs. Honor, the hisses Towner, Miss Smyth, and Miss Kelly. In honour of Fishguard winning the "Soccer" match against Milford by 7 goals to 2, "Saucepan Fach" was rendered, and the National Anthem brought one of the most successful "smokers" yet held to a clo?-<\ Baptist Entertainment.—The Baptist chapel at Lower Town was filled to overflowing on Friday evening last, when the third of the series of the winter entertainments, in connec- tion with the sol-fa classes, was given.—These classes, it should be stated, are a source of much interest, the conductor being Mr. T. Bowen, Lower Fishguard, to whom much credit is due for their continued success.—In the un- avoidable absence of the pastor (Rev. Dan Davies), Mr. David Griffiths, High Street, pre- sided and opened the proceedings with a pithy address, creating no small diversion. To the many contributors he gave encouragement for their exceptionally clever efforts. The follow- ing took part:—Messrs. Enoch Davies, William Gwynue £ vajis, T. Bowen, Ben Bowen, D. B. twen, W. John Price, Geo. Harries, Arnold Evans, Baden Collins, Teddie Collins, Willi. Bowen, D. Oakley Davies, Edward Davies, Frank George, Lawrence Davies, Willie Harries, Misses Daisy Jenkins, May Evans, Alice Evans, M. J. Matthews, S. A. Davies, May Harries, May Evans, Mattie Evans, Bessie Thomas, Minnie Harries, Florence James, Mary Rey- nolds, Katie Evans, Rachel M. Williams, Sally Harries, Lizzie Owen, Bowen. A feature of the evening was the children's choirs, led by Mrs. Geo. Collins and Mr. W. Gwynne Evans, both of whom sang exceedingly well, and re- flected credit on the conductors. The Lower Fishguard Choir (conducted by Mr. J. Hicks) is also worthy of special mention, who also sang with effect. Mr. Enoch Davies proposed a vote of thanks to the chairman, which was seconded by Mr. Edward Davies and carried amid plaudits.
COODWICK. C.M. Monthly Meetings.—These were held on Tuesday and Wednesday at Berachah, and were largely attended. Full report next issue. Visitor.—Mr. Idris Davies, M.P., paid a visit to his brother (Mr. Howard Davies) last week, leaving on Saturday. Debate.—On Tuesday evening last Mr. W. T. Gray was the speaker at the fortnightly debate. Mr. 0. Gledhill moved, "That dancing is a healthy recreation," and he dealt with the subject most ably. The opposer, however (Mr. Arthur Davies) did not arrive in time to de- liver his address, and Mr. M. Moses alone took the opposing side, the motion being carried by 14 to 4.—Mr. Richardson gave notice of motion to call attention at the next meeting to the absurd manner in which a certain newspaper (not the "Guardian") reported his speech.
SOLYA. Arrivals.—The arrivals for the week are:— Ketch, Rosetta, with a cargo of superphosphate for Mr. A. O. Williams, merchant; and Dol- phin, from Sydney, with coal for W.C.A. Singing Festival.—Practices towards the forth- coming festival are now in full swing at the several Baptist churches of the district, and this augurs well for a successful "gymanfa" at Croesgoch next June. The committee have been very fortunate in securing the services of a first-class conductor for the day in the person of Mr. D. Thomas, F.T.S.C., Pontypridd. Success.—We wish to congratulate most hear- tily our young friend, Mr. Edrin Beynon, of Whitchurch, Solva, upon his success at the Civil Service competitive examination recently held at Swansea for post-office telegraphists. Out of 27 candidates he secured the second place on the list, which result is indeed highly gratifying. He has been appointed as clerk and telegraphist to the head post-office, Aber- dare, where he intends taking up duties next week. He received private tuition for this examination from Mr. W. D. Evans, head teacher of the Council School, who has also so successfully coached several others of his old pupils for tnis and similar examinations.
LLANRHIAN. Monotony has characterised our winter even- ings here so far, but it seems that at last we are in for a rare treat. The music-loving fra-1 ternity will no doubt rejoice to hear that a concert is to be held at the schoolroom next week, when several of the leading vocalists of the district will take part. Gramophone selec- tions will also be giyen, and we understand that the services of a. capable violinist have been secured. The proceeds will be devoted towards an object which deeply concerns the whole agricultural coaaauinity. 0
NORTH PEMBROKESHIRE FARMERS' CLUB. Annual Meeting. AUGMENTED PRIZES. Mr. J. C. Yorke, J.P., presided at the annual meeting of tHe North Pembrokeshire Farmer's Club held on Thursday last at the Commercial Hotel, Fishguard. There were more than usual present.. Mr. V. J. G. johns, sec., read summary of the accounts for the past year and preferred his re- marks by commenting upon the turdiness of some of the members in giving support. The past year had been exceptionally hard, due to the loss by death of the late Mr. John Worth ington and others whose presence and support were much missed. The loss financially would be about P-50 per annum. Mr. Worthington's demise almost deprived the society of £37 10s. every year. However, Mr. E. D. Jones, J.P., who was president, generously gave in addi- tion to the usual E5, another £10. (Hear, hear). Mr. Robdft Chambers, Glynymel, whose pre- sence that day was most encouraging, had contributed £ 5. whilst others had kindly doubled their usual annual subscription. Ap- proximately, they had a credit balance of about .£64 5s. 10d., out of which £50 were deposited to the reserve account in order to make up the L100 according to precedure. He calculated on having about k20 in hand after all liabilities had been met. (Cheers). On moving the adoption of the report the Chairman eulogised the work of their worthy secretary, Mr. V. J. G. Johns. He was sure all members were delighted with the heaitny state of the Society. Mr. Johns had accom- plished excellent work, and the best thanks of the Society were due to him. (Applause). Mr. W. G. James, J.P., Pantyphilip, had much pleasure in seconding the adoption of the general report, which was carried with ac- clamation. The Secretary reported that Messrs. Toogood nursery and seedsmen, had offered a silver and two bronze medals as first prizes for com- petition. These were accepted with the Society's best thanks. Mr. V. J. G. Johns was unanimously re- appointed secretary. The Chairman referred to their secretary's gratuitous services, but hesitated to mention an honorarium, because he hoped the time would come when Mr. Johns would accept some remuneration for his valued services. The matter had been. considered by a specially appointed committee that day, and it was decided that Mr. Johns be offered from private sources, a small intrinsic token of the Society's appreciation. He would not mention the sum there, but it had been almost sub- scribed, and they would also be able to offer Mr. Bertie Johns something for his co-opera- tive help. He (Mr. Yorke) would be pleased to see him accept remuneration. Mr. Johns, on being apprised of his re-elec- tion thanked the members, remarking that he should always be pleased to do all in his power for the progress of the Society. (Ap- plause). Mr. R. Chambers, Glynymel, was unanimous- ly elected president of the Society for the en- suing year. The vice-presidents added to the list were Mr. J. Victor Higgon, J.P., Sealyham; Mr. E. D. Jones, J.P., and General Sir Reginald Pole- Carew. Mr. W. T. Walters, manager of the London and Provincial Bank, was unanimously re- elected treasurer, and given the thanks of the Society. Among the alterations in the awards list were: That winners of £3 and upwards should subscribe Zl to the funds of the Society. The rule that no first prize animal shall be allowed to compete in two successive years for the same prize was struck out. No steward to be allowed to exhibit in the class in which he was acting as steward. The election of stewards was relegated to special committee. All horses to be measured on entering show ring. No carts to be allowed in the ring bearing owners' names, tradesmen's turnouts excepted. The annual general meeting tdbe held before Jan. 15th in each year if possible. That cups in the form of prizes be exhibited on the show grounds. That the judges' books bear printed instruction to the effect that prizes be given to the finest quality animals, rather than the most valuable from a marketable standpoint. This applies in particular to yearling steers. Those of any pure breed to be added to the catalogue in respect of boar and sow.— That a class be formed for two pigs of any pure breed five score in weight, 4el first, 10s second prize. That prizes be offered to cart foals of E2, Ll, and 10s., foals to be shown along with the brood mares.—Mr. Phillips of- ered £1 prize for pony brood mare, the society to offer a second prize of 10s.—The committee recommended that the society offer prizes of E10, and second prize of £5 for best three-year- old hunter, to be jumped and shown in saddle. —Carried.—It was decided to offer tl 10s., t.1, and 10s. respectively as prizes for foal tho- roughbred, calculated to make a hunter.—A weight-guessing competition to be added to the prize list at the discretion of the committee. The suggestion of Mr. Phillips, of Cardigan, to hold an entire Horse Show was deferred to the next meeting. A vote of thanks to the chairman concluded the proceedings, which throughout were very encouraging.
ST. DAVIDS The Bessie Clark (Capt. Tucker) has arrived with a cargo of Newport coal for Mr. H. Morris, merchant. The "Pembrokeshire Almanac" is now on sale at Mrs. R. D. Thomas, New Street, and at Mr. W. D. Williams, Gwalia. Price, 2d. Presentation.—The Rev. G. P. Gabriel (for be- tween 8 and 9 years minor canon of St. Davids), who resigned the position of sub-chanter on appointment to the Vicarage of Warren, Pem- broke, was on Wednesday last presented by Mrs. Dean Smith with a gold watch and chain on behalf of his many friends and well-wishers in St. Davids. The Vicar, Rev. Biggerton Evans, the Dean, and others expressed their great regret at Mr. Gabriel's departure, and their best wishes for his happiness and pros- perity in his new sphere of duty. Mr. Gabriel suitably acknowledged the gift, which would always remind him of his old friends in St. David's. Church Defence.—The second of the series of lectures was given on Tuesday last at the Na- lectures was given on Tuesday last at the Na- tional School, by the Rev. A. Biggertn Evans, sub-chanter of the Cathedral. The subject was, "The relation of the British and English Churches." The lecturer treated the subject in a masterly way, and the lecture, which was lis- tened to by a most attentive audience. The Very Rev. the Dean, in proposing a vote of thanks to Mr. Evans, said he was sure these instinctive lectures would be a great help to all true lovers of the Church, and would mater- ially assist in educating churchpeople in the history of their ancient Church. He was sure all would agree that the vicar (Rev. D. J. Jones) deserved great thanks for the trouble he had taken in organising the series of lec- tures. The next lecture will be on Tuesday, February 4th, at the National School at 7.30 p.m., and will be given by Mr. Francis Green. A most enjoyable evening was spent at the Grove Hotel on Wednesday last, the occasion being a dinner given by a local sporting gentle- man in the neighbourhood to farmers and others who have given him permission to shoot over their lands. The company numbered 55, and included, with others, the following: Col. Smith, Lieut. Rowe, Messrs. Williams, D. Roberts, Treginnis; W. H. Jones, Prospect Hotel; J. Howard Griffiths, C.C., Lleithyr; Gil- bert Martin, City Hotel; W. H. Phillips, Cwmw- dig; H. Hunt (chief of coastguards); J. Dodd Griffiths; W. Arnold, Penarthur; W. Harries, Trepuet; W. Griffith, • Rickeston; H. Rees, Carnwchwrn; John Thomas, Lleithdy; E. H. Lewis, Hendre House; John Owen, Gwryd Bach; W. J. Richards, Hendre; Dr. W. Wilfred Williams, Philip Owen, Llanferran; W. D. Beynon, and W. J. Beynon, Penlan; W. Davies, Clegyrboia; Luther B. Rees, Mynydd-du; E. J. Martin, Trehenlliw; W. Monger, E. Childs, Tre- leddin ;Roberts and F. and W .Thomas, Lower Treginnis; W. James, Croeswdig; and James Williams, etc. The dinner consisted of soup, cod, and egg sauce, roast beef, mutton and pork, plum pudding, mince pies, and other sweets, with cheese, celery, and dessert was splendidly served and put on the table, and the host and hostess (Mr. and Mrs. Barkway), deserved and obtained very great credit. The table decorations were excellent. A few speech- es were made afterwards in proposing toasts. A pianoforte solo was given by Mr. A. J. Bibb, F.R.A., and songs by Messrs. Rowe, Jones, and I Monger, and the inimitable James Williams, who was great in a typical song on the present 1 company. "Auld Lang Syne" closed a very pleasant evening.
Jur representative Tor Pembroke Dock and district is Mr. P. F. Smith, 4, Victoria Road, Pembroke Dock, to whom notices' of coming events, items of nett.s) IfJr advertisments should be sent.
NOTES AND COMMENTS. I have a strong opinion that all forms of athletics are most beneficial, and I am not, therefore, unduly alarmed because a football match will attract a larger crowd than a mis- sionary meeting or a temperance lecture. Still, I should like to say a word or two about a very bad feature in local football circles. The other Saturday, in a Rugby match at Tenby, one team wnen they saw they were being worsted left the field in a body. The same day a very similar incident occurred at Pembroke Dock in a Soccer match, but in this case only a portion of the players left the field. These are not isolated cases, for early in the season a similar incident occurred in a match at Ney- land. These incidents, and also the prevalence of disputes and protests, seem to show that sportsmanship is rather a minor quantity with certain clubs, and also that the local bodies governing the game are not as efficient as they might be. "i" "j" "j" It is evident that, there is too much of the "win, tie or wrangle" spirit about, and that players do not play merely for the love of the gime. But from what I have said it will be ipparent that bodies ruling both Soccer and Rugby codes in the county must have been somewhat lax. Such incidents as occurred last Saturday would not happen if the offenders knew that they would be sternly dealt with. A man would think twice about leaving the field if he knew that it meant suspension for the rest of the season. Perhaps the referees were to blame-of course, that's what the players would say-but I have heard nothing to con- firm this. But everyone makes mistakes occa- sionally, and if the players want to decide matters for themselves, why have a referee at all? I sincerely hope that the Pembrokeshire Football Association and the association in control of the handling code in the county will deal with these matters in a businesslike and fearless manner. ? ? In the borough of Pembroke the all-absorbing topic of discussion is still Bush Hill, and despite all that has been said there appears to be as great a diversity of opinion as ever. At the ratepayers' meeting there was plenty of eloquence, and the opponents to the scheme carried the majority of the meeting with them. But there were not more than from 800 to 900 persons present, and it must be remembered that the population of the borough of Pembroke is about 15,000. So even this large meeting, a portion of which was in favour of the scheme, can hardly be said to iepresent public opinion. Very probably an equally large meeting could be called at Pembroke, and would be almost unanimously in favour of the scheme. One thing I cannot understand is why certain gen- tlemen are so anxious to make this a Pater Ward matter pure and simple. In one breath they protest that they are not against the scheme, but do not consider that the Pater Ward can afford to spend the money, and in another they grow indignant because the Pem- broke Ward has offered a sum of £50 towards reducing the cost. a 1 Y As to whether the hill is dangerous or not there appears to be a decided difference of opinion. Certain gentlemen spoke strongly on this point, and on the other hand Alderman Smith ridiculed the whole idea. But everybody except the ex-Mayor agreed that the scheme would be an improvement. Mr. Lawrence, however, said that if they widened the road they would make it more dangerous-a state- ment so remarkable that it needs some ex- planation. How would the road become more dangerous? Several other remarkable state- ments were also made. Alderman Smith, for instance, said "that he believed from his heart and soul that this scheme had been engineered for private rather than public interests." Now this is a very serious statement to make. It insinuates that the surveyor must have been "nobbled" by some outside person, and that the whole of the members of the Council have been similarly influenced. If that is so it points to a grave scandal. In common fairness to the officials and his colleagues upon the Council, Alderman Smith ought either to sub- stantiate his statement, or withdraw it and apologise. Iff The other day some gentlemen were discuss- ing the matter, and one remarked, "Would there have been all this opposition if the land adjoining Bush Hill belonged to any other gentleman than Sir Thomas Keyrick T" That is a matter I will not go into, for I give the gentlemen opposing the scheme the credit of doing so entirely on grounds of public policy. I think, however, that these gentlemen might give the advocates of the scheme the same treatment, and I should like the whole matter to be fought out without the introduction of personalities. Surely both parties can find enough arguments in support of their views without resorting to mud-throwing. And, be- sides, what is the good of it all? If the Pem- broke members maintain the attitude they have taken up, the scheme will be forced through despite all opposition. t » lw After their treatment on Thursday evening, it can hardly be expected that any of the Pembroke members will alter their views. The advocates of the improvement had been twitted that they dare not face a public meeting. Several Pembroke members came over to Pem- broke Dock in order to explain their position at the ratepayers' meeting. They were refused a seat upon the platform or an opportunity of addressing the meeting. They had to stand in the hall and listen to themselves being criti- cised, without a chance of replying. Surely this is hardly fair play? One could have ima- gined such treatment being meted out if per- sons from outside the borough had wished to interfere, but it seems hardly courteous treat- ment to gentlemen representing another ward of the same borough, and considerably inter- ested in the matter discussed by the meeting. » 1t 1t It seems to me that the division of the borough into wards is responsible for a deal of friction and ill-feeling, as well as complicat- ing the work of the officials. Under the pre- sent system the representation of the two wards on the Council is not equitable, looked at either from the aspect of population or ratable value. What the advantages of the present system are I fail to see at all, whilst its dis- advantages are manifold and glaring. But whilst the wards are divided as they are, every portion of the Pater Ward deserves equal treat- ment. It seems to me a most unworthy and unneighbourly view to take, to say that because one portion of the Pater Ward adjoins Pem- broke it should be treated differently. Is any difference made when the rate collector visits that portion of the Pater Ward? Have the members of the Pater Committee the same scruple at receiving money from the ratepayers in this portion of the ward that they have to spending money there? THE PILOT.
PEMBROKE DOCK. The Dockyard Examinations.—It is announ- ced that the competitive examination for ap- prentices to the Dockyards and the Boy Arti- ficers in the Royal Navy will be held in Lon- don, Devonport, Portsmouth, Chatham, Pem- broke, Sheerness, and Cork in May. Re- quests for regulations, etc., should be addres- sed to the Secretary, Civil Service Commission, London, W. Veteran's Death.—The death took place at his residence in Princess-street on Wednesday of Mr. Michael Winters, an old and respec- ted inhabitant of the town. Deceased, who was 69 years of age, was an army pensioner. He had joined the service in 1852, and served in the Old Cost Brigade of Artillery. He was sta- tioned at Quebec for many years and was one of the recipients of the belated Red River Ex- pedition Medal. Deceased was an Orangeman and a member of the Church of England. An Appointment.—Mr. J. J. Maple, the popu- lar headmaster of the Templeton Council School, has secured an appointment under the London Education Committee at Bayswater. Mr Maple is a Pembroke Dock man, but he had made himself very popular at Templeton. He had captained the T6mpleton Football Club since its formation, was secretary of the local Horticultural Society, and had for some years conducted the Congregational Chapel Choir and the Templeton Male Voice Party. He had also for four years been a member of the Narberth South Parish Council, and was the chief promoter in the village lighting scheme recently carried out. The Wesleyan Church.—Tile preacher at the Me.yrick-street Wesleyan Church on Sunday was the Rev. J. J. BaVies, who has recently returned from Durb^tfi. Mr. Davies is a Pem- broke Dock man, and is brother of Mrs. S. J. Allen. There wete large congregations at each setvfee. r The -Mecha'nic.s'TÍÍstitute.l'he fifty-seventh afahti-ak report and balance sheet of the Pem- broke Dock Mechanics' Institute, of which Mr. A. MeColl is president, has just been issued. The actual income for the year was £131 10s 3d., against kl36 5s. 3d. This may be accounted for owing to the increase of arrears of subscrip- tions. The expenditure was Z186 13s. Ogd., against iEl22 5s. lid. last year, The Salvation Army.—During the past week end "Brigadier" Onslow A. Edwin (adminis- trative secretary for Wales and West of Eng- land) accompanied by "Staff-captain" Hum- phrey paid a visit to Pembroke Dock. On Saturday evening the brigadier was given a hearty welcome upon his arrival, the local band meeting him at the station. On Sunday the services were held in the Temperance Hall and were well attended. On Sunday afternoon Brigadier Edwin gave a lecture at the Bethel Bush-street Baptist Church upon "The Crimi- nal—corrective v. vindictive punishment." Mr. W. Grieve presided and was supported by a number of members of the Town Council, and various local ministers. On Monday evening an anniversary tea was held in the Congrega- tional Schoolroom, followed by a united gather- ing addressed by Brigadier Edwin, at which "officers" from various surrounding towns were present.

The Beach Road.—On Wednesday last the chairman of the County Council (Dr. Griffith) and the county surveyor, met a deputation from the Neyland Urban Council, on the Hazel- beach to Neyland road, to consider the appli- tion made by the Urban Council for assistance from the County Council for continuing the new sea wall and repairing the road. The matter will be further considered at the County Council meeting next Tuesday. Entertainment.—On Wednesday evening an entertainment in aid of the Church Funds was given at the National Schools, Neyland, and proved very successful. The programme was contributed to largely by a Pembroke Dock Party, an orchestra conducted by Mr. T. G. Hancock playing selections, whilst songs were given by Miss A. Hancock, Miss Marjory Han- cock, Miss Nellie Smith, Miss McDonald, Miss May Ferner, Mr. W. Lewis and Mr. Fred Davies. An operetta entitled "Extremes" was staged, those taking part including the Misses M. and A. Hancock, Miss Aveston, Miss Ivy Bonnell and Miss Ferner. There was also a sketch "Borrowed Plumes," in which Mr. T. W. Rowlands, Mr. W. James, Mr. C. Jones, Miss Herbert and Miss Dora Button appeared. Concert.—A concert under the auspices of the Neyland Orpheus Society was given in aid of Mr. T. Herbert, of Charles Street, on Wed- nesday week in the National Schoolroom. Capt. Enoch Davies presided, and in his opening address spoke of the good character of Mr. Herbert, who for 21 years had served as ship's cook in the G.W. Railway steamers, most of the time under the Chairman. There was a large audience present, and the Captain re- marked that that was evidence that the world was not getting worse as some pessimists were trying to make out, and that the huge audience was sufficient evidence that people were more christian and sympathetic with the sick and suffering than ever. The secretary informs us that he expects that about L20 will result from the effort. The recipient, Mr. Thomas Herbert, has been ill upwards of 13 months, and he justly merited the assistance that will be given- him by the concert. M_

PEMBROKE RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL. A meeting of the Pembroke Rural District Council was held on Monday at the Town Hall, Pembroke, when there were present Mr. W. G. Parcell (chairman), Mr. C. Mathias (vice- chairman), Messrs. T. John B. G. Roberts, J. Thomas, J. Goodeve, W. C. Jones, J. Roch, J. J. Evans, S. Howells, B. Gwilliam, J.' Picton, J. Davie sand Mr. G. Thomas, with the clerk (Mr. W. C. Jones), the Surveyor (Mr. J. Roberts), and the Inspector (Mr. W. Edwards). The Clerk reported that there was a balance in hand that evening of £ 1,500. The Chairman: We shan't spend all that money this year. The Clerk: It will soon go, sir. SCHOOLS CLOSED. The medical officer (Dr. W. R. E. v.illaims), reported that he had during the past month had to close Manorbier schools owing to an outbreak of the measles, and Cosheston and Hundl,et,on schools owing to t)utbreako of j whooping cough. INSPECTOR'S RVNKT,. The Inspector reported that the pump at Pisgah, Carew, had burst owing to the fros4 and was in immediate need of repair. At St. Florenec he found a pig tsye upon the premisef, of a Mr. George Adams, which was in a most dilapidated condition, and required attending to. He found that the milksellers of the dis- trict took very little interest in the regulations the Council recently passed dealing with cow- sheds, milkshops, etc., and he had had very few applications for copies of the bye-laws. In reply to the Chairman the Inspector said that the pig-stye was close to a house, and there were a dozen pigs in it. Mr. Mathias: Who told you about this pig- stye?—I have been there before. Mr. Mathias: Do you report on every pig- stye you see ?—When I find them in so bad a state as this. Mr. Mathias: I know a pig-stye that has been in an unfit state for 23 years, and has never been reported on yet. Mr. John said that this matter had been be- fore the Council last summer and was a very bad case. It was decided that the owner should be written to. With regard to the pump at Pisgah, Mr. Pic- ton said there was a crack about 18 inches long. He thought it could be mended by the local blacksmith. The Inspector was instructed to have the necessary repairs done. COSHESTON COMPLAINTS. A letter was read from the Cosheston Parish Council complaining of the size and quality of the stones placed upon the roads, and also that the houses near the bridge had not a pro- per water supply. The Surveyor said the stones were machine broken. They were flat in shape and were not so big as they looked. Mr. Goodridge said that he believed the Parish Council wished water to be taken to the houses near the bridge from the top of the hill. He did not think they could entertain that. Mr. John asked how many houses there were who would use the water, and Mr. Goodridge replied that there were only two. No action was taken in the matter. NO HELP FROM THE WAR OFFICE. A letter was read from the War Office stating that the Army Council had considered the Council's letter relating to the road from J effreyston Wall to the East Blockhouse Battery and found that they were unable to make any contribution from Army Funds towards the maintenance and repair of this road. The Chairman: Can we do anything more in that matter? The Clerk: They won't take dictating to. The Chairman: Didn't they complain about the road? The Clerk: Complaints were made. The Surveyor said that complaints had been received from military authorities. The road was now being repaired. The Chairman: Can anyone suggest any fur- ther steps we could take in this matter. I am afraid we can't do anything. Mr. Mathias: We must grin and bear it.
PEMBROKE PETTY SESSIONS. Monday, January 27th.—Before Messrs. F. P. Tombs (in the chair), Messrs. S. W. Willing, J. Rowe and B. Powell. DRUNK. James Longhurst, labourer of Long Mains, was charged with being drunk and disorderly on January 18th. He was fined 10s. and 6s. 6d. costs. THE FIRST TIME. Thomas Owens, of Long Mains, pleaded guilty to a charge of being drunk and disorderly on January 11th, veas fined 2s. 6d. and 6s. 6d. costs and the Chairman said that he hoped this would cure defendant and that it would be the last time. A SUMMONS GRANTED. An old man named George Gough, an in- mate of the Workhouse, applied for a sum- mons against a man named Edwards, who, he alleged, had assaulted him. The summons was grantede.
PEMBROKE EDUCATION COM- MITTEE. SCHOOL EXTENSION AT MONKTON. A meeting of the Pembroke Education Com- mittee was held on Tuesday evening at the Coronation Schools when there were present Alk. Wt Smith .(phairnfan), Miss Maillard, Messrs. W. M. Griffiths, W. Evans, T. Davies, W. Robinson, A. F. Beddoe, J. Rowlands, W. Jones, J. Grieve and Rees Phillips. PARENT AND TEACHER. The management committee reported that Mr. Thomas Lewis had appeared before them and made a complaint against a teacher at the Coronation School for improperly caning his son, and also using improper lang;i.ge to him. The committee considered that the punishment given was not excessive; they considered that the conduct of the teacher to- wards the parent was highly improper, and deserving of censure. The report was adopted without remark. THE NON-PROVIDED SCHOOL. From the report of the Management mittee it appeared that the difficulty with the managers of the Victoria Road National Schools has not yet been definitely settled. The com mittee, however, have offered to pay a thud of the cost of the repairs which they contend are necessary for "wear and tear." Later on the Clerk read the minutes of the meeting of managers of the National School, at which this offer was considered, but did not read the r.ply sent. FALSE PRIDE. The Chairman said that he should like, as the representative of the committee on Dr. Jones' Trustees, to call attention to the fact that there were certain moneys in connection with that charity which the Trustees were com- pelled to spend in apprenticing poor children in the borough, both boys and girls. F<^r some years past they had not been able to find parents who desired their children to be ap- prenticed, and the result was that a large sum of money had accumulated. Perhaps this was owing to the fact that the public generally were not aware that the authority had money for such a purpose. He should like any members of the committee who knew of any really genuine cases to bring them forward. At the present time the Trustees had the money but not the children. EXTENSIONS AT MONKTON. Three tenders were received for the extension of the Monkton schools, specifications having been prepared for this scheme, one being more elaborate than the other. They were as fol- lows:—Mr. H. R. Brown—No. 1, iEllO 10s. 9d.; No. 2, kl48 12s. 6d.; Messrs. Davies and Mor- gan—No. 1, £ 80; No. 2, 9125 6s. Messrs. A. Heatherly and Co.—No. 1, £ 98; No. 2, £172. It was decided to adopt the more compre- hensive scheme, and upon the proposition of Mr. Evans, seconded by Mr. Beddoe, Messrs. Davies and Morgan's tender of £125 was ac- cepted. MISCELLANEOUS. The attendance returns showed that the per- centage for the borough had been 84.9, and in the Pembroke Ward 79.1, whilst the amount of grant lost was £45 15s. 6d. The very low per- centage was due to the prevalence of measles, whooping cough, and mumps. The committee decided to support a resolu- tion passed by the Felling Education Committee to the effect that the cost of medical inspection in the schools, should be met by a grant from f the "Tijtperial IjSxcheqrier. A Mr. Dryer was given permission to lecture in the schools on the evils of smoking.
THE BOROUGH MEMBER AT MILFORD. The Future of the Dockyard. Mr. Owen Philipps, M.P., addressed a meet- ing of Liberals in the Masonic Hall, Milford Haven, on Friday evening. There was a fair attendance. Dr. Griffith presided, and was supported by the member, Mr. C. F. Egerton Allen, Mr. W. F. Roch, Mr. Hicks (Tenby), Mr. Isaiah Reynolds, (Haverfordwest), Mr. R. Cole, Mr, W. Hire; Mr. T. J, Trebrook, and Revs. J. Harris, and W. H. Proager, After a short address from the Chairman, Mr. Owen Philipps said he came there that night to give an account of his stewardship. There were two great industries in the Pem- broke BorDughs-the Dockyard at Pembroke, and the trawling industry at Milford. As mem- ber for the Boroughs he had felt that the mat- ter of the first importance was the welfare of the Dockyard, and as their representative he had considered rightly or wrongly, that it was his bounden duty in the first place to do his best to see that there was sufficient work to enable a Dockyard man to be fully employed. During the time of the late Government, as they all knew, there were a very large number of discharges, and from statements made by im- portant members of the late Government, they knew that had they remained in office there would have been still a larger number of discharges. But he was pleased to say that a change of Government had brought about a very distinct change in many things. One of these was a change in the policy of the Govern- ment to the Dockyards, and, although much remained to be done, it was an undisputed fact that up to the present they had succeeded in obtaining sufficient work to keep the men em- ployed, and he understood that the policy of the Government was to continue to fina suffi- cient work to keep the Pembroke Dockyard employed. (Applause). While sitting in the House of Commons he listened to a speech from a member of the late Government, in which the Government Dockyards were des- cribed as moribund. He hoped that member would live to see that the Pembroke Dockyard was 110I moribund, that ships could be built as fast at Pembroke as they had been in tho past. (Applause). They would all have been interested to see in the newspapers that the I.L.P. had passed a resolution in favour of the nationalisation of the means of production. No doubt that was a very big order, but he hoped the resolution would not be to the detri- ment of Pembrokeshire people, because if their friends of the I.L.P. realised, as he hoped they would, that they had already nationalised the means for producing big warships at Pembroke Dockyard, he hoped to have their support in his efforts to secure a man-of-war to be built at Pembroke, instead of these being given out to private yards. (Applause). This would be the first question before obtaining the nation- alisation of other means of production. The other great industry in the Boroughs was the trawling industry, but before referring to the flourishing condition of this industry, he should like to express his extreme grief, his heart-felt grief, at the fact that one of their large trawlers —the "Devon"—was so many days over-due. He hoped it would be found that some outward ocean bound steamer had the crew on board- (hear, hear and applause)—but if the worst news should be confirmed it was a poor satis- faction, he knew, but it would at least be some relief to Liberals to know that one of the re- sults of their two year's work in Parliament that if unfortunately there were, as the result of this steamer being overdue eight women made widows in Milford, that at least they would have the benefit of the Workmen's Com- pensation Act, extended by the Liberal Govern- ment to sea-faring men. (Applause). As a large shipowner himself he had always warmly supported the extension of the Compensation Act to seamen. He could never understand why they were excluded in the first instance, and it was greatly to the credit of this Govern- ment that this great defect in the former Act had been remedied. One of the drawbacks that trawler-owners in Milford had to contend with were the duties en fish imported into Portugal or Spain. Tariff Reformers would no doubt quote that as an instance of the de- sirability of retaliatory measures-that if other nations taxed our goods, we should tax the goods they sent into our markets. But if they looked a little further into the question, they would find that it was not quite so conclusive as it appeared at first sight. Portugal sent this country a large quantity of wine every year which, as they knew, was very heavily taxed. This, however, had not resulted in Portugal's taking any tax off our fish, and it was clear that if this country wanted the tax on British fish reduced, they must go about exact- ly in the same way under Free Trade as un- der Tariff Reform, and that was by friendly negotiations. He had taken up this matter with the Foreign Secretary, and he hoped when- ever a commercial treaty was being negotiated with Spain that this matter would receive favourable consideration of his Majesty's Government. (Applause). There was another matter which, although small, directly affected local industries. lie referred to the question of railway rates, between Milford and other towns. He had been asked by the Chairman of the Milford Docks Company to attend the London Law Courts to give evidence in a re- cent case in favour of the port of Milford. He had very great pleasure in complying with that request, but he was afterwards informed by the representative of the railway, that Dr. Griffith had given such excellent evidence that it was absolutely unnecessary for anyone else to appear. (Much applause). If we were to carry on an exclusive business from this coun- try, especially in the North Sea, it was obsolute- ly essential that we should have command of the sea. He was one of those who believed in the absolute necessity of having a strong navy. (Hear, hear, and applause),—and he would warmly support the Government in any steps they might consider necessary to take in the event of Germany or any other country carrying out a big naval programme. He felt, however, that in this matter they were abso- lutely safe in the hands of Lord Tweedmouth who, he felt sure, would insist on maintaing- the navy in its present position-that was more than equal to two other powers. He did not propose that night to take them in detail through the various Acts that had been passed during the last two years, but he did say that during that period no Government in the his- tory of the country had passed more useful legislation. (Applautse). And from the pro- gramme for the forthcoming season they could be absolutely satisfied that under the leader- ship of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman—(ap- plause)— whom all Liberals were pleased to see had returned to this country in good health- that he would steadily carry out the pro- gramme he placed before the country on being returned to power. The coming session would undoubtedly be a very busy one, and questions of social reform, he was pleased to say, would occupy a leading position. There was one question he had always felt very keenly about and that was the Old Age Pensions. (Applause.) He hoped that when the Government scheme was unfolded they would find that it was a scheme without discrimination, as personally, he felt strongly that no scheme would be ulti- mately satisfactory that attempted to discrimi- nate between different people. Another ques- tion that would undoubtedly occupy a place in the coming session was that of Temperance Reform. (Applause). He believed this would be the principal Bill of the Session. Undoubt- edly they in Wales were in advance of the people in England on this question, and he hoped that the Government measure would contain a provision for putting the control of the licensing of the public houses in the hands of the people of the locality, who were better able to judge of their requirements than jus- tices of the peace, however able. (Applause.) He hoped the Bill, when submitted, would prove satisfactory, but if it did not come up yto their expectations it would be the duty of himself and others to press the Government to bring in at a later stage a more drastic Bill for Wales. (Hear, hear.) The other great Bill to be introduced was that dealing with educa- tion. Mr. Birrell's Bill of 1906 was based on a compromise. Compromise was undoubtedly a very excellent thing in its place, yet when a Bill was based on compromise it did not sat- isfy. And as the Church party in the House of Lords did not accept the late Bill, he hoped that in the Bill to be introduced by Mr. Mc- Kenna—(applause)—it would be such that every Liberal could support keenly and thoroughly. He, for one, believed that the time for compro- mise was gone by. (Hear, hear.) At the last election the Liberal party received a mandate to deal with the education question in a straightforward and thorough bill based on a byoad spirit. (Applause.) They might ask if' such a measure as he had hinted at would get through the House of Lords. Their late leader, Mr. Gladstone—(applause)—in his last speech to the Liberal party in the House of Commons, told them that they would sooner or later have

CYCLIST KILLED AT PEMBROKE1 A very sad affair occurred at Pembroke on Saturday, when a young man named William Mathias, losing control of his bicycle on St. Daniels Hill, Pembroke, dashed into a tree with terrible violence, and died in a few minutes. There were two brakes on the machine, but it was impossible to say after the accident whether they were in working order or not. Deceased was only 21 years of age, and had a fortnight previously completed a short term of service in the Royal Garrison Artillery, having spent part of his time at Malta. He had been living with his mother, a widow, in Stackpole village, and proposed entering the Metropolitan Police. On Saturday morning he set out from Stackpole to cycle to Pembroke, for the purpose of filling up certain papers in [ connection with his application to join the police force before mentioned. THE INQUEST. Mr. H. J. E. Price, the coroner for the county, held the inquest at St. David's House on Monday, when Mr. Rees Phillips was foreman of the jury. Charles Mathias, a brother of the deceased, who appeared to be labouring under mucb emotion, said he lived at Stackpole, and de- ceased, who was 21 years of age, had been a gunner in the Royal Garrison Artillery. He had left the service about a fortnight. He did not see his brother on Saturday, but knew that he had set out for Pembroke on his bicycle. Oliver Griffiths, of Woods End, said that he was proceeding home at about 11.45 .m. on Saturday, when he met the deceased riding his bicycle. That was at the top of St. Daniel's Hill, and deceased was travelling at a tidy speed, but apparently had control of the machine. Just after deceased had passed him, he heard someone shouting, and a woman called to him to come back. He went back and saw deceased lying on his back by the hedge. He was alive then, but he never spoke. His bicycle was under him, but wit- ness did nothing until Mr. Roch, of Linney, arrived, and the latter lifted deceased's head and turned him on his side. Annie Cole, a widow living at Stackpole, gave corroborative evidence, and P.S. John and Dr. A. Hurrel Style spoke to finding the body and the cause of death. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death." Some strong remarks were made about the need of a mortuary.

to face this question of the House of LordSt and the sooner the better. Mr. GladstoJJS never said a truer thing. He believed tl2fr Liberal Government were determined to carry their measures through the House of CommonS regardless of the House of Lords. If the House of Lords threw out the measures, ft would be for the people to say, when the tiII18 came whether their elected representatives wet* to be consistently stopped in carrying out views which he was pledged to support. g8 did not doubt what the decision of the people would be." It would, no doubt, be a hard fight, but he did not think it would be a long fighk He promised to support any measure which the Liberal Government might bring in to deal with this question. Sir Henry Campbell-Ban- nerman's scheme was probably the line of least resistance, and Sir Henry was a man whoIØ he was proud to follow. (Applause.) In coC* elusion Mr. Philipps said he gave the elec- torate various pledges two years ago, and be had endeavoured to the best of his ability to fulfil them. He was prepared to, answer anY criticisms on that two years' service-(applause) —and he promised them that so 'long as he had the honour of being their representative in the House of Commons he would, to the best I of his ability, endeavour to honestly carry out all the pledges he gave. (Applause.) Other speeches followed.
