IfENAI SOCIETY LECTURE. Mr John LUyd Williams, ot Gun DolbBnmaen, gsfe to the members of this eooiety ou Thursdiy, the 26th alt., a lecture. to which we w- able only briefly to refer in our Hat issue. The attendanoe vu unfortunately not Urge, owing to the exi$tAuGe of more than one comnter attraotioo in the oity on the same evening Mr John Roberts, M.D., Menai Bridge, occupied thathair. Tbe 1 actors was entitled 111 Some proble-a in the flora of Carnarvonshire, and was listened to with unflagging interest throughout. The leoturer oalled atteotion to the sail-known (act that oerttln plants which were generally »c«gti(»od as maritime or ooaat plants were touad aluo at considerable elevations on our mountain iridre-i, while they did not oconr at all in the intervening distance, however short it might be. 8noh were for example the ma-pink (armeria mari- tima), the sonrvy "rasl (oooblearia ofSomaus), the bladder tUene (iileue maiitiraa), and the sea plan. tain (plantaao maritime). These plants flourish on the olMwyns and in the owms of the Carneddi, the Glydyre, and Eryri, with even more than the laxuriaaoe with which they grow at the seaside, The results of sn examination of thase epeoies in the Herbarium of the British Mueenm, Sonth KenefBfjton, showed that this peculiarity of distri- bution held good on the Continent as well as in the British Isles. The absence of these plants at low levels inland, and the presenoe at high levels on the Mountains and ou the sea shore, was the problem to which he ventured to offer a solution. Several theories were pat forward in eruooession to explain the faotl, bat were in turn dismissed as inadequate. Baoh were the possible oonvectioi, of seeds Irom the shore to tbe moantain by means of birds, and the possible occurrence of similar oonstitaentsintbe rocks. The explanation which the lecturer suggested was that the sea at one time washed time rooks which now stand as much as two thousand feet above its level. This gave ocoa- sion to describe in a graphio and entertaining manner the chaages to which these islllude have been subjeoted during geologically recent times, Moording to the calculations of astronomers and geologists. The theory of Dr. IJroU, which showed that from 240,000 and 80,000 years ago the condi- tions were Puch that an extremely oold olimate Swailed o\Wtbe whole of the Northern smisphere, the owasion of the great ice age. On the other hand, great oscillations of level have repeatedly taken place. Marine shells were found in gravel beds in snob situations as Moel Tryfan, at a height of about 1500 feet above the level of the sea. Tbe lecturer was of opinion thab these maritime plants had reached their present sites on the mountains on the occasion of a submergence towards the close of the great ice age, and had not retired with the sea when the subsequent elevation took place. At the olcse Mr Williams exhibited, by means of the lantern, some admirable views of the mountain homes of the plants of which he spoke, which had been taken by Mr Pettigrgw, an amateur photographer of Manchester. A vote of thanks to the leoturer was proposed by Protestor PHIIJJM, who said that the lacid lecture they had heardwas pre- eminently such a lecture as the sooiety ought to bear. Mr Williams was an accomplished botanist, than whom no one was more familiar with theflora of the mountains of Carnarvonshire,'and they had listened with delight to the clear exposition of the theory whioh he bad enunciated. Tbe vote was seconded by Mr JOHN TBOHIS, of the "Normal College, and carried with coiamation.
THE CHORAL VICAR OF ST. ASAPH AND m J. H. LEWIS, M.P. A DELUSIVE LIBERATIONIST I CALCULATION. I The following correspondence has tiken place between the Rev. Daniel Davies, choral vicar of St. Asapb, and Mr J. Herbert Lewis, M.P. Glao Elwy, St. Asaph, 20th Jan., 1893. Dear Sir,—As one of your constituents I venture to ask voa tbe following question: Yon are reported to have said last Thursday, at Liverpool, that the "proportion of the Church and Dissent among Welsh-speaking people in Liverpool was as 13 to 1." The tautiao I wish to ask is, did yon oonnt among the Welsh-speaking Churchmen of Liverpool those Welshmen who, while speaking both Welsh and English, prefer to attend the English services of the Churoh, and if you so inoluded them would you kindly tell me what proportion tey oooupy of the total number at which you estimate the Welsh- speaking Oburchtnen of Liverpool.—Yours, &0.. DANUI> Divies, choral vicar of St. Asaph Cath- edral. J. Herbert Lewis, Esq., M.P. Peniiebal, Caerwya, N.W., 23rd January, 1893. Rev. and Dear Sir,—In reply to your letter, I did not inolude in my estimate those bilingual Welsh Churchmen who prefer to attend the English ser- vices of the Churob, nor, on the other hand, did I inolude those Weilsh Weslevans, Baptists, Congre- gationalists, and CalviniBtio Metbodists who speak both languages and prefer to attend the English ser- TiceB of their respective denominations. I presume that Welsh-speaking Churchmen and Nonconformists would attend English plaoes of wor- ship in proportion to the numbers in which they respectively attend Welsh places of wor8hip. If that is not the case, we can only conclude that Welsh-specking Churohmen oare less than Welsh- ?aking Nonconformists for their native language. -1 am, &0., J. HBBBBBT Lzwi& Rev. Daniel Davies. Glan Elwy, Bt Asaph, 27th January, 1893. Dear Sir,to an argument against the Church in Wales, you stated in Liverpool that the 11 propor- tion of Church and Dissent among Welsh-speaking people in Liverpool was as 13 to 1." You now admit that yon took no acoouat of those Welsh- speaking Cbnrohmen wbo, although Welsh-speaking, attend English churches in Liverpool. That Is to IllY, you admit that you stated in publio as a fact what is a partial and therefore delnsive calcula- tion. You justify this oonduot by stating that you omitted the Welsh Nonconformists who, though speaking Welsh, attend English services. Your justification Is plausible but fictitious, for this reason. Your own denomination, the Calvinistic Methodists, almost donble the whole of the other Welsh aeote in Liverpool, is a purely Welsh sect in language and origin, and even in the whole of Wales its English members number under 10,000, so that the number of Calvinistio Methodists who elect to attend English services is a very negligible quantity. Further, Calvinistic Methodism being a purely-Welsh sect is compelled to provide for its people in large English centres because Calvin- istic Methodism ends with the frontiers of Wales. On the other haud, a Churchman going into England or Amerioa finds already established there the Ofeuroh of which he was a member in Wales, Welsh Methodism, therefore, being a parely loeal and praotically monojlot Welsh seot, is oompeiled in Eaglandto retain its members by the exelusive use of the Welsh language, the medium and Iberor its influence and tbe main hope of its con- tinned existence. For a Welsh Methodist, the Welsh language is almost his oreed. I have taken your own seot. the Welsh Methodists, beo*oae'»hey»r« so much more numerous add typical than all the other Welsh seots taken together in Liverpool. If ytin wish to give the proportion of Cburobaeil to Nonconformists among the Welsh- •peaking people in Liverpool it is clear that you miura take the whole of the Welsh-speaking people and state accurately what propertion attend the services (Welsh or English) of the Church and of NonoonforHity. The Welsh-speakine people of Liverpool are generally estimated at 50,000. The total number Attending all Welsh plaoes of worship in Liverpool when the census was taken in Ootober, 1891, amounted to less than "500, or In other words less than one-tenth of the whole Welsh-speaking people of Liverpool. What you did was this—yon professed to give the proportion of Churchmen to Dissenters amonst the 50,000 Welsbspeaking people of Liverpool. Now you oonfess that TOU framed the proportion of Churohmen to Disonter,i I moog the Welsh speaking people of Liverpool, not out of the w hole 50,000 Welsh-speak- apesking people there, but ont of the fraotion of the Welsh-ppeaking people which attended Welsh places of worship, that fraotion being less than one testth of the whole. That was to say, yoo confess that you have given as a proportion for the whole what is only a proportion for a fraction of the whole, and then yin publish tbis to the publlo II if it were the proportion of Churchmen to iMentem among the whole Welsh-Speaking people of Liverpool. After this it is not anrp''?°<! that yoa should be compelled 10 sear?b of arguments against the Church 1b Wales to cross tb frontier an J .wen the I Atlantic, Thepablic will be interested to know that the Welsh Liberatiouista when they travej j jabrofcd only change their olimate.-Yonre. 40.

AN ECCLESIASTICAL SENSATION AT I COLWM BAY. tFsov Out OWN RIPOBTIB.] j A considerable sensation has beon created amongst all sections of the parishioners owing to the proposal of the Bishop of St Asaph to separate the Ir an portion of Colwyn &y from Llandrillo parish for ieooteaiastioal urpoon, and "ppoint an iDcmmœut of St. Paul's Church, so that the Rev. W. Ven&btea 'WiUt?mft can devote all his attention to the parish cbnroh at HMd?to. The Bishcl?? proposal finds ?little favour at Oolwyn Bav, it being rooBniMd that the Bov, Venables Williams worked Very hard to get funds to erect St. Paul's Churoh a few years ago, when the temporary etrncture was burnt down. When the churchwardens heard of the Bishop's startling suggestion they went to St. Asaph to confer with his lordship on the subject, and, ff possible, ascer- tain the reasons for the proposed change. Their efforts met with little onmeim The only reason stated is that the Vicar is getting into yean. On Monday evening a meeting of the parishioners was held, Churohwarden John Porter in the chair. Those present wpr unanimously in favour of retaining the Rev. Venables Williams at Bt. Paul's Churoh. There was only one dissentient, who dwelt npon the Vicar's age as a reason for the change, but another gentleman present retorted thot Mr Gladstone is ten years older than the Vioar, and continues to gall the publio still." The meeting appointed a committee to represent -the feeling in Colwyn Bay on the subjeot tc he Bishop, with a view to getting the proposal with. drawn.
A LOCAL LAW CASE. REEfi V. WILLIAMS. In the Qawn's Bench Division of the HI¡¡bCourt I of Justice on Monday, before Mr Justice Day and Mr Juetio? CaUics. eitting M & divisional 00arto the case of Rees v. Williams and others came on for bearing. Mr Herbert Williams appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr E. H. Lloyd for one of the defendants. Mr JTOTICE DAY I believe thisi is a oase referred to the court by the district registrar at Carnarvon. I don't think we can entertain it. Mr LfioiD said, in the first place, he believed the case was sent to the judge at chamlwra. A corres- pondenoe ensued between the judge's olerk and the district registrar, and,as a reeult,thedietriot registrar referred the case to the court. Mr JCSTIOK DAT An appeal from a master of the High Court goes to a judge in ohambers. I never heard of a master referring a matter to the oonrt direct, and I do not know that a district isgistrar is in any better position or has any greater powers and privileges than a master of the High Court. Mr LLOYD submitted that under the rules a master could refer to the oourt direot if he ohose, although that was not the practice. This was an important matter, relating to a writ of thgit, and he asked that it might be heard. Mr JUBTICC DAY: We have made np our minds not to hear it. Mr H. WILLIAMS said his client objected to the order made by the distriot registrar saying thst the matter ought to go to ohambers. He asked for the costs of the dsy. Mr Jcsnci DAY Certainly. Mr LLOYD Do your lordships refer the oase to the judge in chambers ? Mr JCSTIOI DAY: No, we have no power to refer it. Mr Lioij) Then, do you refer it to the distriot registrar.? Mr JUSTICE DAY It goes to the plaoe from whence it came (laughter). Mr LLOYD I presume that will mean referring it to the district registrar (laughter).
A BANGOR ROMANCE. INTERESTING LAW SUIT. HUNT V. PABBT. On Monday the oase of Hunt r. Parry was tried before Mr JustieWWright in the Chanoery Division. Mr Leese, Q C., M.P., and Mr R. V. Bankes appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Haldane, Q.O., M.P., Mr Pane, and Mr John Bryn Roberts, M.P., for the defendant. Mr LBBSS, in opening the case, said the action was for possession of a shop and business in High- street, Bangor, and the question would turn upon the legitimacy of the father of the defendant. In 1804 a Margaret Parry married a Captain William Pierce, who possessed a small ship. About 1813, he having been engaged in smuggling salt at the ports of Carnarvon and Bangor, ascertained that the Castom House officers were after him. He ran away and hid himself in the Island of Anglesey, and the ship was confiscated and sawn np into three parts, as was the oustom. In 1817 he returned to Carnarvon, and there he found that during bis ahsenoe his wife, believing him to be dead, had married a Henry Parry, who was no rela- tion to her. He went to the King's Head Hotel,but instead of seeing his wife he feat for her second I husband and sold his wife to him for a quart of beer. Two or three days after he disappeared from Carnarvon, and had only been beard of once, in 1859. in America. The effeot of that story would I be to make theohildren of Margaret and Henry Parry illegitimate if it was true. One of those ohildren was named Edward,father of the pkintiff. One of the questions would be whether Captain Pierce ever really came back; In 1866 William Parry. a child of the first marriage, died, and left his shop and business, by will, in High-street, Bangor, to David Pierce, a child of the second marriage, who entered into possession. He died in 1879, and left the same business by will to a Wil- liam Parry, son of his late brother, Edward Parrv. This William Parry went into possession in 1879, and was undisturbed for ten years until the writ in the present aotion was issued. Tberefore.the position stood thus. If the ohildren of Margaret Parry's second marriage were illegitimate, then William Parry (the defendant), if he had any claim, claimed through an illegitimate father, and was not, the learned counsel submitted, one of the collateral relations on his mother's side of the testator David William Pierce, as directed by the will of William Parry. The business in Bangor was that of an ironmonger and brazier, and the two plaintiffs, F. A. Hunt and Emma Foster, olaimed the estate as children of Mary Parry, sister of Margaret Parry. Mr LRian then read the depositions of some old inhabitants who could not be brought up, and tbe trst witness was PIBBCE TBous OWKR, This gentleman gave his evidenoe in Welsh, through an interpreter, and caused some amusement in trying to explain his pedigree and relation to the parties in the aotion. He corroborated the learned counsel's statement as to Captain Pieroe's return, and his sending for the man his wife had married in his absence. He told witness's grandfather he was going away for ever, and he was never seen again. This was about the time the Marquis of Anglesey returned from the war. Mr Justioe WRIOHT here suggested it was verv desirable the case should be settled amicably between the partieB, as the questions involved were extremely complicated, and would be very diffionlt to deoide satisfactorily. Aoting on this intimation, Mr Leete consulted with his olient, but was unable to make any arrange- ment. Mr OWBN was then re-examined by the Judge on bis geneaiogioal tree. Mrs ELLII" MORRIS, of Carnarvon, said she was 72 vearsofwe, Captain William Pierce was her unole. She remembered his coming back in 1817 and then disappearing altogether. Mrs EIIOU FOSTER, one of the claimants. then gave evidence. The property was worth about £8000 when David Pierce, the testator, died. She waa the daughter of Edward Hunt, who married Mary Parry, sister of Margaret Parry. Mr HALDAXK said he admitted the relationship. Wrrviss, in cross-examination, said she lid not make her claim for ten years beoause she did not know David Pieroe was dead. The oase was then adjourned. The hearing of the cam was resumed on Tuesday before Mr Tnetice-Wrigbt. hJlltllBIèK ACOUSTOB HOOT, one of the claimants, in evidenoe said he lived in Bangor about ISM. He saw Davitl Pierce frequently. He then went to reside at Liverpool, but he visited David Pierce at intervals, who told him the illegitimacy of the children of Margaret Parry's second marriage was a seoret i. the family, and was not to be talked about. Oroet-Mtmined by Mr Hu.DAM Q.O.-He eoaM O t?=for David Pierce OMertMa): the ch)) dran on that side of tha family in his will as his nephews and nieces. At the close of this gentleman's evidence n con- saltation took plaoe between the counsel and their oiients, and Mr Haldane said he was to say the parties b*d oome to terms in this case, and there would be judgment for the defendant, without I aostc Mr Jastlos WRIGHT MI4 he thought the parties were nry wife.

LOCAL LAW CASE. I His Honour Judge Shø.nd and a jury were occupied till a late hour at tbe Liverpool Comnty Court on Moaday trying an aotion brought by Messrs Bar k er, cement merah l?'3 t. Liverpool, agunst the Honourable W. W. Vivian, of Port Dinorwio, to recover a sum of £65, the value of 24 tons of Portland cement alleged to have been shortly delivered under a bill of ladicg signed by the waatiit of the steamer 11 Dinorwio." Tbe defendant counter-claimed for C23 109, the balance of freight due under the same bill of lading.-Yr W. F. Taylor (instructed by Mr Freston, Liverpool), appeared for the plaintiffs, and Mr Mullholland (instructed by Mr Mostyn Roberts, of Carnarvon), appeared for the defendant. —Mr TlJIoylor. addressing the jury, stated that the steamer Dinorwic," on the 14th and 15th Ootober last, took on board a oargo of oemeut at London for delivery to the plaintiffs at Liverpool, and the master signed bills of lading for 280 tons made up in 2300 'ke?and 300 barrels the vessel mad" "P -f?i,.rpool on the 19th, and at once pro- ceeded to discharge on the dock quay, and oom pleted that same evening in order, it was said, to get to some Welsh port by the 21st instant and so prevent being" neaped." The charter party and bill of lading provided that the plaintiffs should have two" weather working days for discharging, but as he (Mr Taylor) had already explained, this was done in a great hurry on the first day, the olllro being left on the open quay for several honrs against the wishes of plaintiffs and at the defendant's risk, as was explained to the broker before the dis- charge was oommenoed. The cement was carefully ohecked as it was sect off the quay, and when all bad beeu so dealt with it was found that the cargo was short by 24 tons or 240 bags, This he should be able to prove very clearly, and as the shipowner was bound under the oharter party to deliver a full oargo and had not done so he was liable to pay the amount claimed. Several witnesses were oalled to bear out Mr Taylor's statement, one Of them stating that when asked by the defendants' broker to facilitate a quiok discharge to enable the vessel to get away at once, ho stale -1 that though anxious to be accommodating atill the d. scharge after the usual hours for working according to the oustom of the port would be at the shipowner' s risk. Witnesses were also called to speak as to the checking and the deficiency of 24 tons; but, on cross-examination, it was admitted that the oargo was not fully oleared off the quay for some four or five days after the vessel left the dock,during which time a considerable quantity was II shipped from bags into sacks end exported, and several consignments were sent to various cus- tomers by rail and otherwise, and with regard to at least three lorry loads the particulars of the num- ber of Backs were not" tallied" by the checker inasmuoh as they had been sent away before be com- menced checking. Mr MULLHOLLAND sabmitted that the plaintiffs bad not made out their case, asi they had only proved a shortage in the goods despatched off the quay, and not a shortage of delivety from the vessel on to the quay. After considerable argument, His HONOUR over- ruled the objection, and Mr MULLHOLLAND then addressed the Jury at some length upon the evidenoe he should call, and he urged that the plaintiffs had entirely failed to prove any breach of the terms of the charter party or the bill of lading, and rested their case solely upon the evidence of one man, who admittedly, by his own account and his book, had not kept a perfectly reliable record, and who, it would be proved, was not there when part of the cargo was removed from the quay. On the part of the defend- ant he should prove beyond any doubt that the full cargo had been taken on board in London, that it had passed through the hands of several persons in the employ of the shippers, everyone of whom would be called, and produce their books shewing an account of every sack and every barrel as it was put on board; further, he would call the master and mate of the vessel who would prove that the vessel was fully loaded, that no shortage (such as was sugges- ted) oould possibly have occurred without the error being shown in the vessel's dranght; that from the time she left London until she arrived in Liver. pool her hatobes were not touohed, aud that during the delivery at Liverpool the mate kept a oareful tally," whioh entirely agreed with the tally kept in London; as to the refusal of the plaintiffs to aooept delivery after working hours exoept at the shipowner's risk, the broker would be called to prove that no such statement was made, but on the oontrary the plaintiffs' manager raised no objection to the delivery, and subsequently assented to it in a conversation he had with the stevedore. A large number of witnesses were then oalled, substantiating these taots, including five men who ohecked the loading at London, the officers belong- ing to the vessel, and three constables who were on duty on the quay while the cement lay there, who stated that none of it had been improperly removed, and that the disappearance of so large a quantity as 24 tons would be quite impossible. His HONOUR having carefully summed up tbe case to the jury, they returned a verdict for the defendant. His HONOUR That means a verdict for the defen. dant on the claim and also on the oounter-claim for I jE22 19s 6d, with costs.
A LOCAL BANKRUPT'S TURF MANSACTIONS. SEARCHING CROSS-EXAMINATION. At the Bangor County Court, on Monday. Mr Hugh Roberts, assistant official reoeiver, applied to his Honour Judge Sir Horatio Lloyd for a oom- mittal order againstgeorge Augustus M'Lennan, in business as a tailor in Holyhead, for not having complied with an order of the jadge to furnish certain aooouats. The ASSISTANT OFFICIAL RKCEIVIB said that his Honour made an order for oommittal of the bank- rupt on the 12th Deoember unless by the 26th of that month he furnished accounts which were of a satisfactory character. He (Mr Roberts) wrote to him on the same day informing him of the order, and on the following day he sent him a copy of that :e,Ot he l::fd d:t h;'eS::ei:rle:,f t:: aocounts came in from the bankrupt at the beginning of October. They were in a very unsatisfaotory state at that time, and he (Mr Roberts) wanted to check them personally, but he was unable to do so until November. He then discovered that there were forty entries for which there were no voacbers, fifteen entries which appeared to have been entered twice, and there were several of which the amounts were incorrect. The Assistant Offioial Receiver proceeded to state that the accounts given showed JE600 for wages, Rill for rents, rates, and taxes, but no vouchers. After taking the bankrupt's own figures, and making every allowance in his favour, the payments were in excess of the receipts to the amount of £300. His HONOUB His payments jC300 more than bis reoeipts ? Mr ROBIRTS Yes, sir. He was to prepare two aocounts, one showing his betting account separate from his business. The BANKRUPT (emphatically): I rendered that aooount. Mr ROBIBTS Yes, and it was returned to you. The BANZEUPT It was not. I can't give you an aooount when I have no particulars. Mr ROBIRTS (to the Judge) This man is continu- ally writing for an allowance. I promised him an all ow' for maintanance during s oertain period. He says he is bard up, but I find be is still betting 10 late as October last. Hie HONOOB I am afraid tbat betting is like drink, a hard thing to give up. The BANKBUPT (to Mr Roberts): At regards the I entries in the bank book, you said they were to be deduoted, and then you said they were to be entered. What can I make of that ? I am even now prepared to do any mortal thing loan do. Mr RoBsitTs Tn the first acconnt the bankrupt rendered, I pointed out that his payments showed an exoess of £1000 over his reoeipts. But I find entries made twice over for several items. Prooeed- ing, Mr Roberts said the estate would produce about 2e or 3110 in the pound, and that the bankrupt was only in business for a short time, and could not acounnt for the deficiency, and then mentioned several items, amoag them being one of 911 63 9 j in August, 1890. The BANKRUPT That is not in the total. The sheet containing those :items which appear twice over can be taken out of tbe aooount. They are only put there to explain thdta. Mr ROBIBTS I told him several times that be must render an account of receipts and payments. and that the payments mast be vouched. His HONOUB: WeIl, but if there are no vouohers ? Mr ROBKBTS There are the wages, air. The BANicaun Yes, where is the wages bGok 1 It was sent to you. His HONOOB observed that the fact of some of the items appearing twice over would be accounted for by tbe bankrupt's explanation. Mr ROBBHM But there are so many of these entries that are not coached in any way, EUs Haneva ? Give me <o)ae mttanoM, Mr Bourne then read several iteme out, among them one doe to a person at Obester, one of wbign was stated to be a batting tHUMaotioc. His HONOVR No vouchers for iWy of these 1 Mr Rtsmt: Ho, sir. His HONOUR How is that F The BANKBCPT So many yoaohers have been lost, Mr ROBIBTS remarked that the bankrupt had need those monies for betting. The BANKRUPT (hotly) You can't prove that. His HONOUR (to Mr Roberta) You had better write to two or three of the persons set down there as haying been paid, and ask them if they have been paid. If they have not, I shall know what to do. If they have, it will go some wsy to support his statement that be has lost some vouchers. I admit a man who bets and neglects his business through betting is likely to loss his vouchers, and is likely to do a great many other things, and I can quite under- stand his affairs hot being in order. ut course, w< does not excuse him, but it explains his not bsing able to make out a satisfactory accomnt. Mr ROBIBTS: But it does not appear to me that he has tried to do so. His Honouu I want to know whether it is a queertion of disinclination or of disability. Mr ROBBBTS I think it is a question of disinclina- tion. He is known in Holyhead as an able trades- man. His HONOUB That is not enough for me to send a man to prison on. Now, I can't say whether the accounts are satisfactory to me or not unless you test them as I suggest. It you find that he has not paid some one of the items that he has marked paid then I shall know how. to deal with him. After some further olsonSBion, the matter was held over till the next oourt, pending inquiries to be made by Mr Roberts, as suggested by the judge.
SHOCKING STATE OF ST. ASAPlI PARISH GRAVEYARDS. [FEOM OUR OoBBKBPONDENI.j On Friday evening a vestry meeting was held in the Parish Churah vestry room, St. Asapb, to "take into consideration the state of the pariah graveyards and to take steps to put them in good order." Vioar- oborsl Jones presided, supported by Arobdeaoon ThomaB,Mr Henry Cleaver, diooesan registrar, Mr Lt. Lloyd, Cathedral organist, and others. Mr GIORGI proposed that the vestry should have the power to elect a committee, who in turn would have power to elect a board. That board would then be able to approach the Looal Government Board fat obtaining sanction to increase the rates. The present graveyard was in a terrible condition, and so farjas he could see they would not be able to raise the money from any other source. No doubt there had been a gross mistake somewhere, but i who was to blame be could not tell. Some of the graves were actually cut across the drains, and who was to be held responsible for that? A new burial ground ought certainly to be obtained, aa the present one was a disgrace to the parish. The Rev. BENJAMIN HUGHES said he was not in a position to second the motion proposed by Mr George, but certainly something should be done forthwith. Also, on the ground of humanity, it was oruel to allow the gravedigger to work in such a place. He bad a difficulty to out. the graves out, and in recent burials they had seen the difficulty experienced by him in scooping the water ont, and often by the time the minister had read the service the coffins were aotually floating in the water (shame). It was not at all creditable to the city of St. Asiph (hear. hear). Mr ROBEBT DAVIES said he had witnessed one faneral in this grave yard, and was deeply grieved to see the conditicn of tbe IIra-ve. He wonld,therefore, suggest, if it was agreeable to all, that he should bring the matter before the Sanitary Authority,and ask them to allow their engineer (Mr Bell) to survey the ground, and report to an adjourned vestry (hear, bear). Mr CLIAVBB seconded MrDsvses', s proposition,andj it was ultimately oarried.
A BANGOlt BUTCHER'S PURCHASE. SCENE IN A SHOP. At the Bangor County Court on Monday, before Sir Horatio Lloyd, Henry Evans, farmer, living at Tyddyn Uoha, Llaniestyn, summoned Thomas Rowlands, butcher,oarrying on business in Bangor, for El 5s, the prioe of a sheep sold. Mr ROWLAND, solicitor, said that on the 30th December plaintiff sold to the defendant three sheep at twenty-five shillings each. Shortly afterwards the defendant went for the sheep. Two of them were delivered to him; the third bad injured its toot, and was not in the opinion of both parties in a oondition to be removed. The contract was that the sheep were to be paid for ou delivery, but when the defendant took the eheep away only two were paid for. PlaiDtiff having given evidence, Ar HBOMLBY said the plaintiff and defendant met in Bangor. Plaintiff said "I have two sheep for sale, oome out and see them, I have another sheep at home." He asserted that the sheep were not worth more than 12s 6d each, as they were small. His client claimed £6 10s damages for breach of contract and for loss sustained by reason of the plaintiff visiting his shop on a market day and oreating a disturbance. DEFENDANT, who carries on business at 324, HilZh. street, Bangor, said the plaintiff came to his shop and demanded the payment of 25s fc* a sheep. He (witness) told him he shonlll pay woen ne got taa sheep. When he refused to pay plaintiff kioked up a row in the shop, shut the door and would not go away. He (defendant) had about iEl5 worth of meat in the shop. Plaintiff remained in the shop about an hour, and prevented customers coming to make their pnrcbases. He was afraid to go near hiai- (Isughter)-but he did not send for a polioeman. By Mr BBOMLST Did you order him to go out of the shop ?—Yes, and be refused. When I was going for a policeman he shut the door in my face and stopped me. Have you a brisk time on Friday afternoon ?—Yves, that's our busiest time. What do you oonsider you lost by that 1-1 had about ten pounds of meat standing on me" at the beginning of the week. And you say that tbat is owing to the action of the plaintiff 1-Yes. By Mr ROWLAND Is the other sheep worth twice the money ?—Mr Owen wno has seen me eneep says it is. Do you take P5 in an hour on Friday?-Yes, I hava taken £ 9 10s in an hour. Mrs OWBN ooiroborated her husband as to the alleged disturbance in the sbop. I His HONOUR gave judgment for the plaintiff for 9 151 with Court fees; lod for fl ve shillings for the defendant on the coanter-olaim, but without costs.

THE NORTH WALES LUNATIC I ASYLUM. THE REV. THOMAS GEE AND MR HUMPHREY ROBERTS ON THE WARPATH. [To THE EDITOR.] SIR,-The decision of the Carnarvonshire County Counoil to withdraw from the union of the five counties, and take oare of their own patients, seems to have aroused the ire of the good people of Denbigh to a very considerable extent, and it would seem no stone is to be left unturned, no wire unpulled, and no Press uninvoked, if by any means they can secure its resciodraent and reversal. A few weeks ago we had Mr Humphrey Roberts appealing to a discarded coancillor, and finding in that gentleman's injared vanity a ready and sym- pathetic response. Then comes the Rev. Thomas Gee in the Baner; and, again, Mr Humphrey Roberts in the Carnarvon and Denbigh Herald. The irrepressible anxiety of these gentlemen to enlighten us in our own affairs is suspicious in itself, were there nothing else but when I give your readers the why and the wherefor Carnarvon decided to withdraw from the union, and abandon an establishment that has beau condemned by the Commissioners in Lunaoy from roof to base- ment, they will see that Denbigh in this matter be a an axe to grind," and tbat her champions, Messrs Gee and Roberts, have a far more open ear for the cry our oraft is in danger than they have for the cry of suffering humanity. The Baner, in a leading article of the 25th nit., opens with the history of the foundation of the asylum, the union of the counties, the different quotas of patients and payments, &o. I do not wish to quarrel with this account so far, and will assume it to be correct: bat when, further on-I suppose to prove the efficiency and perfection of the pre3ent institntion-Mr Geq proceeds to give the numbers cured from its foundation, I at once join iaaue with him: The number cured, were it double what it is, in itself proves nothing as to the effioienoy of the asylum. The proper methol to prove the efficiency of tbe asylum would have been to compare the percentage of inmates cured at Denbigh with tbe percentage of inmates cared at the other asylums: and I think when Mr Gee has done this he will have little reason for complaoenoy and less for congratulation. The remarks of the Commissioners confirm this: "As to seolusion," says the report, it appears that 40 men on 283 occasions and for a total of 3384 hours, and 22 women on 142 occasions and for a total ot 1704 hours, have been aeoluded. This is an unusu- ally large Irecord for an asylum of this size, &c." Again: The raturnt3 of employment show that the proportion of men and women employed, espeoially men, ratios more than we usually meet with in county asylums." The less said about the present institution at DeLbigh, then, in this direction, the batter, It is true that the Carnarvonshire County Council did, a few years ago, through their representatives and also by resolution, agree to join the other counties in adding a new wing to the present asylum. But they did so under a misapprehension as to the state of the asylum, and in ignorance of the feelings of the Commissioners. When the report of the Commissioners was brought to their notice, it was reoeived with an outburst of indigna- tion. There they saw that not only was the preseut institution condemned but the management was impeaohed, and roused to their sense of duty as a publio body invested with a grave responsibility, they immediately took steps to investigate the matter. The result was that when the committee of investigation reported, the Council by a large majority deoided to withdraw from the union, and take oare of our own patients in an asylum under our looal and immediate supervision. The Commission- He in Lunacy bad advised this, time after time, and even at our last meeting on the 17th ult. again pressed the matter further. "Yonr oommittee," said their secretary, are doubtless aware that the Commissioners oonsider that the erection of a separate asylum is the proper oourBe to take to provide the much needed accommodation for the pauper patients ohargeablo to the North Wales eonnties." I have referred to the indignation expressed at tbe Council when the report of the Commissioners was read, and when we began to realise the situa- tion it disclosed. Air Gee appeals to the rate- payers. I venture to ay there is not a ratepayer in the county, if he had beard that report read, who would not have at once endorsed our indignant remonstrance. I submit to your readers the following extracts from the official report (1891); of the Commissioners in Lunaoy. Postmortem examinations, we regret to learn, were made on 26 only of the 58 deaths." Tilo staff of attendants is sufficient in numbers as regards the private patients, but much below a proper strength for the pauper class." The night attendants are three in the mala and four in the female division. On the men's side a male patient still assists, accompanying the male patrol at night, an arrangement, we believe, no longer existing in any other asylum visited bv the Commissioners. We earnestly hope that this very unsatisfaotory and even risky employment of a patient may be discontinued here. In his plaoe another night attendant should be employed." -1 The observation dormitories are ill-adapted for the purpose." With reforeno. to the insufficiency in number of day staffs we should mention the escape of a woman from No. 4 ward. She was in a ward where there are 85 patients and four nurses, and was supposed to be suioidal, and a caution directed that she should be under I continuous obfiervation.1 Happily, she was found yesterday five miles away," & As to seclusion which is unusually large, tbe I report goes on it is probable that with a staff of attendants more adequate to the number of patients, and whore the difficulty of proper supervision in ill-arranged wards by a small staff did not exist, muoh of this seclusion might have been avoided. In fact, this report, whioh is too lengthy for me to quote more fully, condemns the building in its ill-arranged wards" and ill-adapted dormitories; its drainage in "defect9 known to exist, its manage- ment in an inadequate supply of attendants,and the weakness of the Medioal Staff. I come now to the report of 1892, ffiofal also, about a year afterwardsI Tbe largo barrel drain (comdemned in report, 1891) outside the asylum remains, and the only 'work which has been completed is the pipes from tbe W.C's, baths, and sinka have been reconstructed, and disoharge trapped into the old main drain; but no sanitary engineer has been employed (recom- mended in report 1891) to report upon or draw out a comprehensive soheme for the improvement of the drains in accordance with modern views." The Commissioners again oondemn the employ. ment of male and female patients at night, and go on to say, At the last asylum in whioh, despite our objections, this oustom obtained, it was discon- tinued after the patient aoting as night attendant murdered one of his fellow patients. Extra atten- dants should be engaged (condemned as inadequate in report 1891)." We observe in previous entries allusion was made to the weakness of the Medical Staff, and that no locum tenetu was appointed dur- ing the annual holidays. We now again urge the matter upon the consideration of the committee." The patients' olothing does not ca.1I for praise." And this is the building Messru Gee and Roberts wish to extend, and this is tbe management to whom we are to entrust our helpless and sffiioted patients. Your readers will noioe tbat there is hardly an item oondemned in the first report that is not exactly in the same state and oondemned in the second report, I do not think there oould have been penned a atronger condemnation of the existing institution or a more scathing impeachment of its management. And the only remedy is an asylum for our own county, and under our own looal and immediate supervision. It ia the cost, however, that exercises the minds of Messre (lee and Roberts. Your readers will observe that hardly a thought is given to the patient in either communication. The advantage to him of having an a,ylum within his own county, and the furtheranoe of his reoovery are entirely and perhaps intentionally lost sight of. I, however, think the patient aud his recovery are of paramount importanoe, but I do not wish to evade even tbe question of oust. Of ooorse,the estimate as supplied is only a professad estimate and it is easy to see the" professors are from Denbigh. The cost of a separate asylum for Carnarvon it placed at £140 a patient, which I aooept, but to place the enlargement at Denbigh at only 996 a patient is absurdly below the mirk. The enlargement at Denbigh meaus more than an additional wing it means also the reconstruction In a great measure and re-arrangement of the present building. What about the ill-arranged wards," the "ill-adapted observation dormitories," the "large expenditure for new kitchen, laundry, sud offices referred to by Mr Roberts ? Have we not been told over and over again that classification in the old building is impossible ? The fact of the matter it. the Denbigh Asylum has been condemned in its arrangements from roof to basement, and to put it in a fit state for the reception of patients, furnished with all madern requirements, at demanded by the Com- missioners, together with an additional wing, will take, not £ 32,3dO, the" profened estimate," but more approximately doable that amount; and even then, when all this oapital is sunk, we ahall only have a patched building after all. Mr Hampbrey Roberts ridicules the idea of our obtaining 916,350 from Denbigh, and alludes super- ciliously to 5n "artistic and amusing method of calculation," but when I tell your readers that the rateable value of Denbigh is £42,150 the reasonable- ness of oar estimate beoomeB at once apparent, and in view of the aotion of the Commissioners in similar caaes, we may assume that the committee have under-eatimated our portion rather than other- wise. I am glad to see Sir Horace Davey confirm Mr Darbiahire's opinion as to the interest of the sub- scribers. Messrs Gee and Roberta thought to retain it; but no, says Sir Horace Davey, it is an endowment, and to be dealt with by the Commis- siouers. Mr Gee winds up his leader with an appeal to Scritare and an inculcation of the sacredness of the ir:r:f ::tr:t.ln::d veh:e::?::iSt Council, passed in ignoranoe of facts is vested with all the solemn obligations of a religious vow. How thoroughly Geoiant-Aud all this is done, mark you, to induoe the memberr. of the Carnarvonshire County Counoil to evade one of their moot sacred duties as a pnblio body; to induce them to pass by, like the Priest and Levite, on the other side, while suffering humanity our helpless and demented, are loud in their appeal for protection and care. What a hollow mockery! The grotesque hypocrisy of the whole thine is repellent to a degree.—I am, <fto., J. ISSARD DAVIES. The Anohorage, Carnarvon, February let, 1893.
FOOTBALL NOTES AND GOSSIP. [By OLD FOOTBALLER-1 Bangor 4 goali Cre-re Alexandra 2 goals. This match was contested on the ground of I tho Oity Oiub on Saturday afternoon, in t presence of a fair number of spectators. The I kick off was to have taken place at 2.30, but the visiting team did not put in an appearance until close upon 3 o'clock. The Crewettes won the toss, and played with the wind, which was very high during the first half of the game but before the second half it had calmed consider- ably. The visiting team had the best of the game for some time, but Jack "Bach" broke through and scored for Bangor. The play continued to be brisk, and the homites were kept busily at work. On several occasions the homesters' goal appeared rather dangerous, and had it not been for Alec's noble defence, BinLor would have certainly been several points to the bad. The Creweites were not long in Aiding out that Alec was the backbone of the homesters, and Morris from the right tried strenuously when a rush was made to tip him over but Alec was like a rock, and if anyone felt any the worse ater the scrimmages that took place between them, I bet it was Morris. Poor fellow he teemed quite done up after the last scrimmage which took place between him and the famour custodian. A penalty kick tell to the lot of the Creweites, and great excitement prevailed, but Alec saved grandly, and sent the leather well down the field. I should like to see the home forwards practisinm a little more combination. Again, I should also I ke to see the forwards keeping cool when shooting for goal. Some of the forwards shot most erratic- ally when there was an easy chance of scoring. Stewart played exceedingly well on the left, and I think that the position suits him grandly. The full backs seemed a bit funky, but fair play to them, they were only the Reserves' backs. Perhaps on the next occasion when they play with the first team, they will not be so slow, and be not afraid to rush on the men. Davy is still as tricky as ever. He actually had one or two of the visiting teams' forwards at his mercy. James Gray, at centre, was somewhat selfish, and the leather was taken on two or three occasions from him when some of the forwards had an easy chance of scoring. Willmann, Goronwy, Farmers, G. R. Thomas, and Buckland were conspicuous by their absence. Where, oh where, had they gone ? The Reserves played the Bethesda team on Wednesday afternoon. This was an extremely "rotten" match. It was merely shooting for goal. The result was Bangor Reserves, 8 goals Bethesda nil. [By CMTIC.] Bangor are indeed doing well; they have not, since the early part of December, met with a defeat. Last Saturday they again vanquished the Crawe men by four goals to two, which speaks volumes for the gay city. I hope to see them victorious over the chemical lads who are due here to-day (Saturday). Play up, Bangor, and show the football world what yon are worth, as the Flint team is now a strong club. Carnarvon, last Saturday, journeyed to Rhyl tO play the return fixture, and had to go down to the tune of five goals to one. There was a large crowd, it being a benefit match to R. Rosney, the popular forward of the Rhyl Club, who was injured on last^Bank Holiday when playing against Mold. The game was very interesting, and at the call of half time Rhyl were leading by 2 goals to nil. In the second portion of the game the home team had matters much their own way, who ran out winners by five goals to Carnarvon's one, Mr Whitley, I hear, acted as referee, and gave satis- faction to both teams. Colwyn Bay had St. Asaph as visitors. A very late start was made, Colwyn Bay winning by three goals to one. To-day (Saturday) the Bay- ites have Rilyl to play against, and mean to reverse their defeat at Rhyl some few weeks ago. A meeting 'of the committee appointed to govern the Welsh Junior Cap competition was held last Tuesday at Wrexham. A pro- teat was lodged by Conuah's Quay against the result of their tie with Flint Swifts, the ground of complaint being that the referee was not the one appointed by the Association, and they also objected to going to Flint on account ot the spectatore. It was decided that the match should be replayed at Flint on February 1st, Mr J, Taylor to be referee, the president and two other members of the committee to be present. The following are the ties in the third round.-Holywell Reserve v. Fiint Swifts,orCannah's Quay Adwy United v. Wrexham Gymnasiutp, Druids Reserve v. Rhos- tylleo Reserve, Wrockwardine Wood v. Shrews- bury Reserve. Llandudno Swifts last Saturday had an open date, but will to-day (.Saturday) journey to Connah's Quay to play the club of that town, next Saturday, 11th inst. The proud Salopians" will play the Swifts in the fourth round of the Welsh Cup on the recreation ground. They have a grand record, being champions of the Shropshire and District League, and if the Swifts mean to go into the semi-final they will have to go in for strict train- ing.

Although Barnes with la lucky shot opened the scoring, the homesters quiokly began pressing, and Jerman equalised with a side shot, following by Bob Roberta with the seoond. O. Elias put on the third,and W, Roberts the fourth before changing over. Barnee were never really dangerous during the second half, and the Welsh added three more to their score (Bob Roberts two and and Hunter one). It being Bob Roberts' first appearance with the first eleven since his I accident last season, it was gratifying to Me he had not forgotten bow to toore. O.
