SCHOOL TEACHEHS' CONFERENCE.—On Saturday afternoon, the quarterly meeting of the Rhyl and Holywell BraDoh of the National Union of Tfc&chers, wis held in the National Schools, Aber- gele, under the presidency of Mr Pieroe, Holywell Board Sohool. A paper was read by Mr J. Jones, Newmarket, on 1 • The difficulties of training pupil teachers in rural districts. "-After some diaonagion, it was resolved that a deputation from the Anaocia- tion should meet the chairman ct the Hintshire County Council, with a view of establishing classes to assist pnpil teachers in studying scienoes.-The Chairman then spoke at some length On the use and tibuse of Welsh in elementary schools." He thought that the authorities of the Education Department ouqhr to be told distinctly the use that should be made of the language. Welsh sbould be made oue of the subjects for the Queen's scholar- ships. Welsh counties could then enter and utilise the language which would have to be used by them in teaching at rural schools. On the other hand, if the teaching of Welsh in the elementary sohools was made compulsory, beoanse it was thought that by the existence of Welsh Nonconformity would also continuo to exist as a predominating power, that ivonld of course be abuse of the language. If political capital was to be made of "Wales for the Welcb," he thought they should set their facea against teaching it. They had amongst them a number of English teaohera who did their work very successfully, and the advantage which Welsh teachers had over them in knowing both languages wag neitnt-ally great. Bearing that fact in mind, they disapproved of any change being made in the code which would place a bar in the way of their English fellow teachers in Wales (applause). A vote of thanks was passed to both gentlemen for their papers, and a committee 01 nvem was appointed to fully consider the Welsh I question.
BLAENAU FESTINIOG. Mr Clement E. Lloyd, barrister, held a revision court at Blaenau Festiniog the other day at olevea, and in the eveniog at six o'clock, for the revision of the lists of voters for the polling dis- tricts of Yetradau, Cwmorthin, Rhiw, Bowydd, Macnofferen, Diphwys, and Conglywal.-The Con- servatives were represented by Mr John Charles Hughes, solicitor, Dolgelley, instructed by Mr Peter Davies, acoonntant, in the absetee of AIr A. 1.1. Evans, of Tanlan, Tanybwlob, the agent for the district, who was prevented to attend by illness and the Radicals were represented by Mr R. O. Jones, solicitor, instructed by Mr Andreas Roberts, of Blatnau Featiniog.-At a court previously held at the Pengwern Arms Hotel, Festiniog, the owner's claims of John Williams and Rowland Williams, of Gwynly, Trawsfynydd (brothers), were objected to by the Conservatives, but the matter was adjourned to this court so as to give the claimants an opportunity to produce their deeds, &o., in proof of their olaims. John William3 appeared to support his olaim, and was successful, bnt the claims of Rowland and Wm. Williams were not allowed.-At the Festiniog Court, the Coniervativea objected to the ownership vote of Mr Owen Lloyd Owen, draper, of Traws. fynvdd, aud to the occupier's rote of 'Ur Maurioe Richard Morris, draper, of Brynglas, Trawsfynydd. Mr Owen appeared to support his claim and suc- ceeded to prove his interest in the property for which be claimed, and was allowed 511 coats. The Conservatives, however, were sucoessful in proving that Mr Maurice Riohard Morris was not the sole occupier of the house he olaimed a vote for, and, that the qualifying property was not of sufficient value to allow of a duplicate vote, and therefore his name was struck off the list. The lodger's claim of the Rev. David Evans, of the Parsonage, Tyddyngwyn, Blaenau Festiniog, was objected to by the Radicals, but the name was retained. They also objected to the Rev. R. A. Williams (Berw), the well-known chaired bard, late rector of Llanfibangel-y-Pennanfc, Carnarvonshire, as the tithe rent owner of Baarth Melyn, Tan- ygrisiau, and were aooce&ful; 88 also they were in their objection to Mr Garret,of the Foundry, Tan- ygrisian The Radicals objected to the lodger's olaim of the Rev. D. Jones, B.A., enrate of St. David's, and the Conservatives objeoted to the lodger's: claim of Mr Edward Young, 143. Mauod, road. but a compromise was arrived at between both parties, and they agreed to act on the wise old prin- ciple of give and take, but during the proceedings an inoident happened that caused great merriment in the court when the barrister called out the name of Mr Young, lie was informed that the Conserva- tives agreed to his name being retained on oondition that the claim of the Rev. D. Jones, B.A., was allowed by the Radicals. This, said the Barrister, was a very satisfactory arrangement, but he wished to remind them that it was his duty to see that all saoh claims were legally and regularly made, and to satisfy himself on that point, he would require to see the claim. The claim was duly handed to the Barrister, who at onoe deteoted a fatal irregularity in it, and raled that the vote could not be allowed. Later on oame the olaim of the Rev. D. Jones, B.A., and the Radicals were up in arms at once to objeot to it, but they were mildly reminded of the arrangement agreed to by both parties with regard to this and Mr Yoong's claim, whereupon they retorted that it was on condition that their claim was also allowed. II Ab." aid the barrister, "the arrangement was a fair and a wise one as between party and party, bat the Conservatives cannot be blamed for the legal mistake in Mr Young's claim, and as Mr Jones's olaim is legally and regularly drawn out yoa are duly bound as bonourable men to allow it," which, of course, was granted. The good-natured and humorous remarks of the barrister caused roars of laughter, which was heartily joined in by both par- ties. The following is a detailed statement of the result of the revision in each polling diatriot Ystradan -Conservative objections 4, unstained 4; Radical objections 1, sustained 1; Conservative gain 3.

For the four vaoant seats there are seven candidates, namely :-Dr. Prichard (C), C. J. Wallace (C), J. W. Tosdevine (C), retiring memoers tiugn jones (C), Thomas Abram (L), J. E. Conway Jones (L) and J. B. Harrop (L), already in the field. The volunteer question, which the ratepayers are much interested in, will form one of the issues in the con- test, as the ratepayers feel very strongly that every facility with regard to the Morfa should be given to the volunteers to make it their oamping ground, as they spend so much money in the town that it would be a great loss to the '.own generally if they went elsewhere. The School Board question will be another in which the ratepayers would do well to oonpider. The skeleton board at present costs over £40 yearly oat of the rates, and they have now an opportunity of doing away with this expendi- tare by returning to the Council the four Con- servative candidates who are pledged "to do awe; with it.

It was agreed t'i ereot five new lamps in different parts of tho town. Alderman E. T. JONES said it had been thought that the Post-office corner wae insnffioiently lighted, but the lamp on Mrs Morris's private entrance oonld not be moved to give satisfiotion. Mr KEEFFIB thonght the Government should provide the lamp. The MAYOB .'hey^have been asked and declined to do so. Mr KIKEPFER Yes, but in the present Liberal administration or the Conservative (JoDd laughter). Mr BOAZ JONES Do you mean to say the Liberal Government would not do it ? Mr KEEPFIEB I don't say they would, but they might be asked (lauahter). THE HIOHOATK SCBPLCS LAND. Intimation bad been reoeived from tbs Looal Government Board that they expeoted the Council to sell the snrplus land after the improvements at Highgate and the Smithfield. The OLBRK explained that the land at Highgate had beeu put up for sale by pablio auction, and withdrawn st;C260, offered by Alderman T. J. Wil- liams. That was in November, 1892. Mr Williams afterwards offered £270 for the land, but the Council wrote him asking him to increase his offer to £.300. This he refused to do, and on the motion of Mr Mellard it was then offered at JE270 to Mr Williams, but be then deolined to purohase. Air WYNNS EDWARDS pointed out that it would be most desirable to obtain an extension of time until the Smithfield was finished before the land in both places were put to anotion, as there would be many hundreds of loads of soil to be deposited in making the smithfield. The CLBBK was instructed to write, explaining, and asking for an extension of time. NO HOKE SLAUGHTER-HOUSES. Mr Johson, game dealer and butober, Townsend, bad been served with notice to discontinue slaughtering in his unlicensed slaughter-house, or legal proceedings would be taken against him. He now wrote to the Council asking permission to have the building registered as a slaughter-house. He had applied before, and it had been refused. Mr TaoKAe DAviBs thought it would be nnfair to prevent him slaughtering. There were slaughter- houses nearer to dwelling-houses than that. He proposed it be allowed. Mr BOAZ JONES seconded, saying be frequently visited there, and saw things clean and in order, and the people at the bottom of the town requirod such a house. He had plenty of water. The INSPECTOR, in answer to a question, said there had been complaints from tbe neighbourhood about it. Mr WYNNE EDWARDS thought the town was in great need of houses such as those erected and in the course of ereotion there, and the builders were entitled to protection from having a slaughter- house placed in the middle of their houses. The slaughter-house drained into tbe stream. It was resolved that the houee should not be registered. EQUIPMENT FOR THE FIBE BRIGLDR. A letter was reosived from the captain of the Fire Brigade calling attention to the defective fire alarm arrangements, and saying it was a dangerous feat for men to have to go on the top of the Town Hall to ring the bell in the dead of night, and it I oaused the brigade to be delayed. Mr EDWABDS conld not think why the bell pull was not outside with a notice attached as in other towns. The SURVEYOB: They pull the bell so hard. Mr EDWARDS You cannot prevent people in the exoitement of an alarm of fire from palling the bell. The SURVEYOR: Well, you will see them pnll it until they fall down on their baoks (loud laughter). It was resolved that it should be seen to and re- paired. Captain Ll, Lewis also wrote calling the Council's attention that the brigade was still without a hose oart. After some discussion it was decided to prooure a hose cart.

STRANDING OF A SCHOONER.—On Thursday, the services of the Holyhead lifeboat (Edward Jones, coxswain), were oalled to the schooner "Moses Parry," of Carnarvon, laden with cement. The vessel was lying at anchor in the middle of the Harbour of Refuge. A stiff breeze was blowing at the time from the west, when she dragged her anchor and ran on the breakwater. A number of blue- jackets from H.M.S. Neptnne rendered valaable assistance. Eventually the tugboat 11 British King" towed the injured vessel into the Old Harbour. MARRIAGE OF DR.

Jones, Menai Bridge-, was solem- nized at the Pennel Baptist Chapel, Bangor, on Tuesday afternoon. The officiating ministers were Rev. T. M. Rees, and Professor Silas Morris, M.A., Bangor.

Rees, Professor Morris, and Mr William Williams, Graigiwyd Ganol, Rhoscolyn. The happy pair then left for Manchester to spend their honeymoon. GROCEBY STORES ON FIBE.—On Saturday evening a disastrous fire broke out in tbe Pelbam Stores, which is carried on by Mr J. E. Morris. It appears that Morris in attempting to cross the floor of his shop with a paraffin lamp in his hand trod on his apron and he stumbled. There being a lot of goods about they soorl took fire, and the whole establish. ment was ablaze. Every attempt was made by Superintendent Davies and the town surveyor (Mr Rees Lloyd Davies), as well as the fire brigade from H.M.S. 11 Nt-ptune," to put out the fire. But it had gotsuoh hold on the oods tbat it was all uselesa, but the brigade saoceeded in preventing the fire from extending to the adjoining houses.

If translation was necossary for tho few English guardians, that the chairman or the clerk should do the same.The motion was geoonded by Mr John Jones (Llanddeusant).—Mr J. Lloyd Griffith re. marked that most part of the prooeodings that day had taken plr.ce in Welsh, and he trusted that the proposer of tbia resolution would permit the Enslish language t, be epoken wheD required. The minuteR of the Board bad to be taken down in English, and all the correspondence should be conduoted in the same language. If any correspondence took plaoe between the Guardians and the Looal Government. Board in Welsh it would be returned to have it translated —Mr O. H.

Tha CLRRK inf-irmed the Biard that he hart received information from the Looal Government Board to the eff-ct that, they approved of the cell system proposed to be introduced into the work- house. The CHAIRMAN said it was the general opinion fit. the Conference at Rhyl that the cell system would be beneficial in dealing with the tramps. Dr. JENKINS said he had been against the intro. duction of the system until after the Conference was II held. He was now of opinion that it would be i advantageous. But the Conference thought it should not be proceeded with at present owing to the minera' strike. They all knew how troublesome the colliers bad been of late, and there was some excuse for vagrancy. However, when once the strike was ended, be thought the Bystem of leparat-e cells would do a great deal of good. Mr JOHN ROIKBTS proposed that a committee should be appointed to investigate the plans and report. The CHAIBMAN said the plans had been approved i of and could not he altered. Mr GOODMAN JONBS proposed, and Mr WILLIUI LLOYD seconded, tbat they at once advertise for tenders.

On Sunday she determined to call and see her lover, and proceeded to his apartments. Arriving there she was shown into a sitting-room, whilst tbe landlady went to acquaint the young man of her presence. She presently returned with the message that he deoliued to see her.

Elijah Owen, M.A., Llangoed Vicarage, and at present a master in the school, was presented with the Royal Humane Society's medal for rescuing a boy at Crosby, in July last, when two of his companions were drowned.—Admiral Gough, C.H., presided, and in referring to the matter said that. as deputy-chairman of the Humane Society, there came before that body cases of excellent gallantry performed from time to tti-ne, and it always gave him and tho other members the greatest pleasure when they could show their sense of the services rendered by awarding gold or silver medals as the case might be. In the present instince the committee thought that the gallantry exhibited was excep- tionally creditable, and they unanimously decided to award the gold medal (applause)—Sir W. B. Forwoed then presented Mr r, P. Owen, B.A., assistant master in the school, with the Humane Society's trolti medal and vote of thanks for having, at considerable risk, rescued oue of the boys v ho, while on the sandbanks near Crosby, had been cut off from the shore by the rising tide and rough sea. In making the presentation, Sir W. B. Forwood spoke in a highly eulogistic manner of Mr Owen's brave act, | and said he felt sure that the very painful inci- dent of that sad day would be fresh in the memory of many present. These exceptional acts of bravery were so rare, he said, that only one gold meda was given away every year, although a large number of silver ones were dis- tributed bv the Humane Society. He hoped that that day would long live in their memory, and whenever they were fainthearted they would think of th's occasion that marked anait of courage, and learn to know how bravery was appreciated by their fellow-men (applause). He felt certain, too, that the inc detit of that day would long dwell in the boys' recollection, and be an incentive to follow In the good example of their master, Mr Owen (loud applause).
I WELSH XEAT POR THE LIVEUOOL MARKET A "CAR 11 TON DROPSICAL COW." Richard Hignett Brown, of Llandudno, was summoned at the City Police Court, Liverpool, on Wednesday, before Mr Stewart, for having deposited for sale at the Liverpool Abattoir the carcasc of a diseased cow. Mr Moss pro- secuted, and read a letter sent by the defendant to a butcher named Samuel Bickerton, of Liver- pool, stating that the animal had met with an accident, and that he was forwarding it to the defendant to do the best with it,-Inspector Kenton stated that he found the carcase on the 7tb inst. exposed for sale on Bickerton's premises at the abattoir. It was a carrion dropsical carcase, which was utterly nnfit for human food. Bickerton said, when spoken to, that he had sent for an inspector to examine the food, that he no intention of sell- ing it until such an examination was made. The evideuce of Renton was confirmed by that of Chief-inspector Luya. and Inspector Wycherley. The carcase was seized and destroyed.—Mr Rudd appeared for the defence, contending that the carcase was not offered for sale by Brown. Bickerton was really liable if there had been any exposure for sale. Proceedings could only be taken against the person on whose premises the carcase was found.—Mr Stewart held that the very object of defendant sending the meat was to have it exposed for sale. It was the usual Welsh case; when, they had a bad cow it was sent on to Liverpool for sale. He inflicted a fine of and costs. The letter referred to by Mr Moss, and which was read in open court, was as follows:—"42, Madoc-street, (>, 10. 93, Mr R. Bickerton, Sir,— I am sending a carcase of a young cow through Mr Edwin Williams' advice (butcher here. Market Hall). She met with an accident, and through the butcher's advice I had her killed and dressed, and forwarded to you to do the best and make the most of her for me-I daresay you know who I am by address, trusting you so to do, I remain, R. H. BROWN, 42, Madoc-street, Llandudno; and son of Brown, miller, St. Andrew-street, Liverpool. Sent off this day."
