The gas manager reported that in const qnenco of the coal being wet, and the large quantity of gas required, there had been a great difficulty in getting sufficient heat on the retorts, to overcome which he had erected a short chimney on the retort bed at a cost of £6 10s. He was glad to say it had been quite successful. He further reported that he had given notice to one of the stokers to leave, for refusing to carry out his instructions, but the man having signified his willingness to carry out all instructions in the future the notice had been withdrawn, subject to the approval of the committee.—It was resolved on the motion of Councillor R. Hughes, seconded by Coun- cillor D. Williams, "That this conmittee extends its permission to the withdiawal of the notice to leave given to one of the stokers, but is desirous of impressing upon all the workmen engaged in the gas department the absolute importance of strictly obeyiog at all times the manager's instructions." The MAYOR said that several very bad com- plaints had been made to him as to the smell fl,oin the burning of gas, especially at different places of worship, where people had been almost stunk out. Mr SMITH (the gas manager) said he had had great difficulties this last week in purifying the gas, in consequence of the valve getting out of order owing to the increased quantity of gas now being made. They had not been able to cope with it till this week, when the consump- tion went down, and enabled him to get at the purifiers. An improvement was now in pro- gress. Councillor MATTHIWS hoped this improvement would take place, because he might say that in Penuel Chapel it was simply intolerable. Councillor T. G. WILLIAMS said that when he had been complaining about the smal l make of gas from coal during the last three years, in one instance condemning the coal and in another condemning the works on the ground that there was not sufficient draught to extract the greatest possible amount of gas from the coal, there was little or no notice taken of it. He was sorry to have to mention that some members of that Council thought there was some spleen letween him and the manager,but he was pleased to be able to show them that his state- ments had now been verified by Mr Smith's own actions. He saw from the minutes of the com- mittee that MrSmith bad built a small chimney, which had been of great benefit to the revenue of the gas works. That had been done, he thought, not in a proper way. He thought that if there was any expending of money it should come before the committee. This chimney was built as an ex?ri. ment, and only cost £ 6 10s. This c eini ney had been very successful, to the extent that something like 1000 feet of gas per ton of coal was being made more than in the past. When they came to consider that they need not won- der at the deficiency of t300 last year. That 1000 feet of gas meant a considerable loss to the ratepayers, and there was no doubt that that was the cause. A gentleman on that Coun- cil, possibly before his (Mr Williams') time, had actually made very strong remarks as to the chimney not being sufficient to work the whole beds of retorts that were in operation. He might say also that all the beds were not work- ing since the little chimney had been put up. There was one of the beds supposed to be worked by the little chimney now idle. He thought it was a very serious thing indeed that they had lost money for the last three years, and there was not the slightest doubt that during the whole time they had been losing money entirely through this chimney not be- ing sufficient to make an adequate draught. There was also no doubt that this was the cause of the impurity of the gas. He did not wish to say more about it at the present time, but as long as he had been working upon this point for the last three years he thought he ought to show them that'he was right in his contentions on the matter, and that Mr Smith was wrong. In fact,he would never have mentioned it except for the purpose of showing that he had not been actuated by spleen or animosity in bringing the matter before the Council in the past. Councillor GREGORY said there was another rather serious complaint as to the pressure of gas. He k: ew of one case at the Infirmary which might have been very serious, as the pre&sure of gas was so slight that an operation which was about to be performed could not have been carried out only that they were able to supplement the gas light with a number of candles. That might have led to loss of life. He should like Mr Smith to tell them why that sort of thing was apt to occur, because if it occurred in a place like that again it might be a very serious matter indeed. Councillor T. B. WILLIUlS said that Alder- man Thomas Lewis, Councillor J. E. Roberts, and himself were appointed as a committee to look after tbo weighing of the coal. He called Alderman Lewis's attention to the coal on one occasion, and asked him if be thought it had been properly screened. A lderman Lewis said he did not think it had. After that he (Councillor Williams, said that his experience was that the coal they were getting was unscreened, and that it was through-and-through coal, and said it would riake a difference of Is 6d or 2s a ton in the price of the coal. MrSmith said it would not make as much difference in ihat coal, only 9d a ton Well, if it were only 9d a ton it would be a let, and he (Councillor Williams) was pleased to tell them that the coal they were getting now was worth, in his opinion, 2s 6d a ton more than what they were getting before. Councillor RICHARD DAYlES said he would have liked if it had been possible to have had more reliable information from the manager as to the working of the gas works, and as to the strength. They were led to believe that they were getting practically new gas works, where everything would be re-modelled. As it had been referred to already he begged to mention that im March, 1891, when thosp works were contemplated, he advised the Council to take a little more time to consider the scheme. That frightened some members who did not give him very friendly remarks, because he asked what he thought was a very pertinent question. He asked whether they considered at that time whether the chimney was tall enough; would there be a sufficient draught in it, when there was several beds,and further from the chimney, and if it was strong enough was it strong cnongh to be raised higher. The Ubairmun re- plied, he (Councillor Davies) had asked for the chairman's authority, and he referred him to Mr Smith. He asked Mr Smith, and ho asked the town clerk to take his answer down, as he considered it of importance. He remembered using the expression that be wanted to tie him to his answer. He said the chimney was tall enough, and even strong enough to be raised, but immediately after the chimney had to be strengthened at a cost of t48 when raising it, and now a second one had been built the sanc- tion of the Council not being obtained fur the experiment. That proved that his contention was right. It was not very encouraging to criticise on behalf of the ratepayers under such J drcumntanoes. Here they had been paying the | i loss on the gasworks, and they having failed I "vh-;n they renturod to criticise it they wero mrnbbed. He questioned whether the anitMY j inspector ouglil to allow that chimney under cover it w.ts. Why should they as a Cifpora tó,.] (b a tiling which was a roal nuisance and yet huut up cases against the public for ooni- inittin;* nr.isaneesr He did complain that this I had been done Councillor DAnn Wii-JIAMS did not wish to make :wy remark fuWiier than to point out that the erection of this chimney really took away from 11mm a very important t,,t. They were told when H,"y were going in for new coal, that unless they purchased coal at advanced prices, the ga manager could not guarantee to supply gas to the consumers. H, w.. thought Cli?t the old coal could not hep up tho supply, Wviuuc KufScienUy Jarhe percentage of gas -.?!dT,,)th..t.xt.?t)..Wr<mth.ttc?.).. Now, they found that the manager admitted that the erection of this chimney brought an additional 1000 feet of gas from every ton of coal. It would be interesting to know whether if that extra 1000 feet had been extracted from the old coal, they could have got through the winter, and would have saved Is 3d a ton on 3000 tons of coal. He thought it was a matter that required consideration. They were induced to go in for that extra quality of coal by the manager's statement that he could net get sufficient gas out of the old coal. Alderman LEWIS said they did not simply pay Is 3d for coal that only yielded the same quantity cf gas. That was really the cheapest coal though it cost Is 3d a ton more, so that there would not have been a saving of Is 3d even if they had used the old coal. Councillor D. WILLIAMS said that whaftrin,e contended was that they had lost the possibility of testing the statement as to whether they could get through the old coal or not, Alderman CAMRRON thought so much had been said on both sides, and ruch serious allegations had been brought against the management of the gas works/ that he would move that the whole matter -be referred back to the committee, in order that the manager might have a chance of clearing he matter up. Councillor ROBERT HUGHES seconded the motion, and said he thought it was a matter the committee could go into better than the Council. He was sorry that their friends on the committee should have entered into a discussion like that, when they could do it so much better in committee and he thought that in fairness to Mr Smith the matter should have been gone into in committee first. Councillor DAVID WILLIAMS could not see why it should be referred back to committee. The chimney had already been built. Alderman CAMEKON said they understood that the committee told them that they knew nothing about this matter, and his object was to give the committee an opportunity of ascertaining the whole facts of the case as to why the chimney had been built, &c. Councillor DAVID WILLIAMS pointed out that Mr Smith said at the last meeting that the chimney brought a 1000 felit of gas for every. ton of coal. The MAYOR said that as he understood it Alderman Cameron thought an irregularity had been committed, and wanted to get at the bottom of it. Councillor T. G. WILLIAMS also objected to referring the matter back to committee. The committee knew all about it. Councillor ROBERT HUGHES said the matter was mentioned in the committee, but not a word was said against it. In fact, everybody seemed to be in favour of it, and he did not see why Mr Smith should be attacked in that way after that. Alderman T. C. LEWIS thought it was un- fortunate that such a serious charge should be brought against the gas manager without giving him an opportunity of answering it. Councillor RICHARD DAVIES: This being on the report, I had no opportunity except to-day in public Council of calling attention to it (hear, hear). Alderman Cameron's motion to refer the matter back to the committee was then put to the Council and carried, only two voting against it. With the above exception the minutes of the Water and Gas Committee were confirmed. SANITARY AND BUILDING COMMITTEE. The MAYOR, in moving the adoption of the minutes of this committee, said that the birth- rate and the deathrate for December were equal, viz., 25 8. The committee reported that Colonel the Hon. W. E. Sackville West stated that he had con- sulted Lord Penrhyn as t<>.the6å"pplication of the Council for his lordship to contribute towards the cost of constructing a new culvert under Beach-road, and stated that his lordship did not consider himself called upon to con- tribute towards the work in any larger propor- tion than as a ratepayer.—It was proposed by Councillor David Williams, seconded by Coun- cillor W. P. Matthews, and resolved that the surveyor be and is hereby instructed to obtain tenders for the construction of the culvert in question, and that the expense be included in next year's estimate.—Miss Rathbone's letter of the 15th November, together with a further letter from her of the 11th December,were read. Miss Rathbone in her first letter stated that several of the slaughter-houses were unlicenced. In her subsequent letter this statement was corrected, but she stated that the only means of access to the slaughter-houses connected with the porkshops was through the shop. This statement the inspector contradicted,and stated that each slaughter-house had an entrance other than through the shop, and that every slaughter house was either registered or licenced and that they were inspected periodi- cally and found to be in fairly satisfactory con- dition generally. Miss Rathbone further suggested that a committee of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Ani- mals should be appointed by the Council under section 7 of the byelaws, and suggested that the best course would be to erect a public slaughter-house for the borough.- It was pointed out that the section referred to was intended to enable the Council to appoint a committee of its own members to inspect the slaughter-houses.—It was proposed by Coun- cillor W. P. Matthews, seconded by Councillor David Williams, and resolved that the surveyor be instructed to reply to Miss Rathbone's letter giving her a full statement of the facts, and to state that the Council have every desire to co-operate with the society she repre- sents, but that they have no power to appoint them a committee under the bye-laws. Councillor ROBERT HUGHES begged of the committee to expedite the work at Hirael in view of the coming spring tides in M..rch. If they had heavy rains simultaneously with the high tides he was afraid they would again have to call the attention of the Council to the matter. The MAYOR We have already cleaned out the culvert and the Adda. Councillor MATTHEWS seconded the motion for the adoption of the minutes, which was carried nem. con. HIGHWAYS, LIGHTING AND IMPROVEMENT COMMITTEE. In moving the adoption of the minutes of this committee, Councillor RICHARD DAVIES (chairman) called attention to the following item :-Tbs depu- tation Appointed to wait upon Colonel the Hon. W. E. Saokville West reported that they had been requested to make their communication in writing. They had submitted sections of the retaining wall, and Colonel West after retiring sumeio two particu- lars had expressed him-elf willing to accept same. It was proposed by Alderman D. Cameron, seconded by Councillor Humphrey Williams, and resolved that the terms set forth in Colonel West's letter of the 22nd December be accepted, and that tenders be invited for the erection of the retaining wall on the south fide of the ,tr2t. He said there was an offer 01 £71 by Lord Penrhyn towards tbe expendi- ture. The oommittee were quite dear that Colonel Weat did not understand why and how the amount was made up, but they had no doubt he would pay them what was doe from him when it was properly explained to him; and the Com- mittee asked tbe town clerk to explain the matter to Colonel West. Alderman CAHBBON seconded the motion for the adoption of #he committee's minutes, which was carried. PIBR AND FKBRY COJUnrraz. I Councillor RICHARD DA vita proposed the adoption I of the minutes of this committee, which had held fonr meeting. Tho Committee reported that- the Chairman stated that he had receive a letter from Mi- -T. J. \Vobiter, in whioh ho snggested the advisability of appointing n clerk of worlL for the const rcol ion of the pier, and recotnmffiding die committee to elect Mr Edw!n Hulme, a gentleman who had acted in a similar capacity at the Dover Pier. Mr Hulme forwarded an api'iicxtiou for the ippointtnHi.t at » mUry of f2 V?-t 5J per vwk. After duly consider- ing the matter it, was proposed by Councillor David Williams, seconied by Councillor Humphrey j Williams, and resolved that Mr Edwin Hulme be appointed clerk of wnrka for the erection of the pier at a salary of .£2 12; 6j, per week, to oommntice hi, dut,ies wheu in Mr Webster's opinion it is neceB- fury, ilia engagement, to ba subject to a mouth's njvioc on aither side. Oiiiricillor Davies aid that In th" appointment of oleik ol works the committee bad been guided by the counter, who recommended a person whit hC1d been with him in the offiae, and bad been preparing the plans of the pier with him, and who was also acting in a similar capacity at the Dover Pier. The committee considered that he did not ask an onreasouabls amount as a salary. Mr Davies further stated that the engineer reported that the castings would be brought to Bangor on the 30th of this month, and it would be some satis- faction to the publio to know that the commence- ment of tQ%' wö¡;¡f Wk, now close at hand (hear, bear). T*commi ttee reCWneuded that tiie. Coun- cil shoufld authorise this oommittee to treat for hirers purchase a steamer or steamera suitable for tha/workinfl -f the, ferry add other purposes. ounclllor OK»I,KY thought it would be rather PVemM.ijre to act upon that recommendation until thley saw what th pier was like. lonnoiliór Ri itARi, DAVIES said the committea Vera anxious to i' jer the safety ot those who .rossed as wel' -v-ir comfort, and therefore they 'made that r?L 4 tcndat? i 'made that reu o They thought at one timo that they might get a steamer on nire, with the option of purchase if they approved of it, the price mentioned being from R300 to IC700, but no resolution had been adopted upon that point. The committee were very finxious to ba quite oertaiu that they had got a suitable steamer before they made any purchase. Councillor T. G. WILLIAMS expressed the opinion that they should have steamers fit to go to Bsau- maris as well as to cross the ferry, and something should be done as soon as possible. The miuutes were adopted.

I Upon the raotion of Alderman CAMEBON, seoonded by Counoiller RICHARD DAVIES, the seal of the Council was ordered to be affixed to tbe oonveyance of land for the new road between Caelleppa and Lonypobty. THE DISMISSED BAILWAY BERVANTI. The TOWN CLIHIK read a letter from the secretary of the London and North-Western Railway Com- pany, who, in the absence of the chairman of the company, begged to acknowledge the receipt of a copy of a resolution passed by the Counoil at its last meeting with respect to the dismissal of Welsh railway servants. Councillor ROBEBT IIUOHZB Oh oh 1 is that all ? They might have granted us the courtesy of a reply. Councillor T. G. WILLIAMS Something ought really to be done in reference to this matter. Com- plaints have been made all along the line. People are very dissatisfied at the replies received. The Carnarvon Town Council passed a very strong resolution upon the subject. I think that we ought to move in this question to wee whether we can get an answer-yes or no. Councillor DAVID WILLIAMS: IV s simply asked them to make an enquiry into the m-tter, and this gentleman writes (his chairman being away) to acknowledge the receipt of our letter. I saw some- thing in the papers to the effect that an enquiry will t?, held. 'Wbt more can we ask ? Councillor GBEGOBT We asked then if they were going to make an enquiry. Alderman X. C. LEWIS, after some discussion, moved tbat a econd letter be written to the com- pany askiD theiffif they intenad to institute the enquiry asked for by this Corporation, and calling the company's attention to the fact thit this was a very popular branoh of their line; that an in- justice had been done, and that an enquiry ought to be made. becr:iIlor RICHARD DAVIE! had great pleasure in Beoonding the motion. Alderman CAMEBON deprecated any hasty action in the matter. There were other bodies in the county taking it up. Councillor MATTHEWS supported the resolution on the principle of fiat justitia ruat ccelum." The motion, on being put to the meeting, was carried with one dissentient. The prooeedinge then terminated.
BANGOR HALF-HOLIDAY MOVEMENT. rTo THE EDITOR.] I 81&1 shall be most grateful if you can find space in your valuable paper in to-day's issne for a word on the above subject. I was agreeably surprised to find that the shops were closed so generally on its initiation last week. I believe every shop in town with the exception of three were closed at the appointed time, two o'clock. I can assure all concerned that we shall not rest until we have every shop closed. Lest some of the tradesmen who closed on Wednesday should take umbrage at those two or three shops being open, and on that account think of opening again, may I appeal to them not to be in too great a hurry,and give the committee of the movement a little time, and I am certain they will spare no effort to get the others closed. I should also like to say a word to those who have not fallen in with the movement, and I am certain they will listen to reason. Possibly they treat the'r assistants well, and have no i eF3ire to rob them of the half-holiday, and may wish to give it them in some other way than by closing their shops. But by refusing to close their shops they place the whole movement in jeopardy, as other tradesmen will not continue to close if they will remain open. Therefore they, and they alone, will be responsible for upsetting this good movement and robbing the assistants of the town of their well-earned boon, which their employers are willing and some are anxious to yive them. I desire to appeal to them as Christian and humane gentlemen to take these things into consideration, and fall in with the movement.-I am, &c., ASSISTANT.

1 jUatt-|U%Ttjr* ai (Glc.unt.d I [From Speciai Correspondent.] On Tf«jd.iy afternoon, in tb* pioturesque little I ohnroh within the demesne of Woodrtoff, titat Clonmel, oo. Tinperary—the eja:wivc estate ..nd reaidenae of the ¡",rry family- tlM marriage* of II Mr Eric J. W, Platt, son of Colonel Plalt, of Gorfdinog. IiUnfairfechao, wi'.h Miss Florence 1 OMOf i'evty, daughter of 1I. Samuel Perry, D.ij,, J.P., took pl&ca Under MM happiest and brightest auepi-jes. Tbil, happy evem, since ifG first announcement, was regarded by all clashes of the community, rioh and poor, and espeoially amongst the immediate friends ot both families, with the greatest interest- hence the immense as- semblage that thronged the ohurch" hoth inside and out" ou Tuesday last. The wedding, we should mention, was 'one of the prettiest that has been witnessed in this neighbourhood for many years, as every arrangement bad been made that was calculated to lend to it an additional eclat. Noue took a kindlier or more active part in the erection of the evergreen atobes through the demesne, or in the beautifying of the sacred edifice where the marriage was celebrated, than the people about the plaoe, and the result of their labours was regarded with the most pleasurable feelings. The weather, though ssverely oold, was still bright and crisp, and from long before the hour appointed for the marriage (two o'clock p,m.I, there was a ooutinuous roll of carriages along tbe different roids leading to the church, which was quickly filled with the wedding guests-a very large number of acceptances having been received. The interior of the church itself was profusely decked in every part with lovely flowers, palms, ferns, and mosses, all displayed with exquisite taste. The first of the bridal party to arrive was the bridegroom, who was attended by Mr Hope as best man, and was reoeived in the most cordial manner; then came the bridesmaids, Beven in number, who remained in the porch to await the arrival of the fair young bride, who shortly after drove up, and as she alighted from her carriage and entered the church, leaning upon her father's arm, met with quite an ovation from the assembled crowd. THE BRIDE. The marriage was celebratei bv the Van. R. J. S. D,4? i,,h, M.A., Archde-oor? ?f Wt?,ford, and Incumbent of the united parishes of Cahir and Derrygrath, aisisted by the Rev. T. T. Teuner, B.A., and, as the bridal procession pass,?d up the aisle to the ohancel rails, the hymn, The voice that breathed o'er Eden," was sung by the cboir. The bride, who was given away By her father, looked really charming in a splendid and most becoming costume. She wore a dress of ivory satin, trimmed with pearl passementerie, and Brus- sels lace and tulle veil; ornaments (three magnifi- cent diamoud stars), presented to her by the bride- groom's father, Colonel Platt. She oarried an im- mense and exquisitely formed bouquet of the rarest white exotic flowr,amongst whioh or«ng« blossoms predominated; It was the gift of the bridegroom. Tbe bridesmaids who attended the bride were Miss Edith Perry, the Misses Platt (2), Miss K. Perry, Miss Bookey, and the Misses B. and H Perry. They looked remarkably well in their pretty dresses-all being alike of white crepon with blue belts, and zouave jackets with silvertrimmings, black velvet pioture bats trimmed with blue velvet rosettes and ostrioh feathers. Each of the brides- maids wore an exceedingly handsome heart-shaped brooch, set with pearls and with a tiny enamelled shoe in blue and gold. Thev also oarried beauti- iful bouquets of white exotic flowers and maidenhair ferns, with long blue satin streamers. These lovely brooches and bouquets were presented to them by the bridegroom. After the marriage had been solemnised and as the newly wedded conple passed down tbe church, they were most heartily congratu- lated on all sides. They drove at once to Wood- rooff amidst muoh cheering. and were followed immediately by the bridesmaids and the entire company of the wedding guests. Upon reaching the house the bridal party assembled in a group near the hall door, where they were photographed. When the wedding party bad assembled in the dining-room of Woodrooff House, where Mrs Petry held a reception, Count Edmond de Poher do la Poer, D.L., pro- posi>d, amidst enthusiastic applause, the bridn's health in the following eloqueut terms Ladies and gentlemen, I have been asked to give you a toas1, and it is one which I know will be heartily responded to, when I say that it is the health of the bride (renewed applause). I give you this toast with the greatest plessore,for from what I have heard of my future nephew, I am certain that the bride's wedded life will be a most happy one; she will take with ber to her new home that charm of mauuerand brightness of disposition which has gained for her AD many friends here. Those amiable qualities will ensure tor her many new friends where she is going to; but, while gaining tb< se, she will not forget her old friends here, and when she and her husband return to this country tbey will, I am sure, be received in that good old Irish fashion with a oead mille a faiite." With th, s3 few remarks I beg to propose the health of the bride. The toast having been reoeived in the heartiest possible manner, Tbe bridegroom (Mr E. J. W, Platt), in a few happy remarks, returned thanks on behaJf of the b,ide, and acknowledged in grateful terms the kindly reference to himself which Count de la Poer had made. 1 The splendid wedding cake (from Mitchell's, of Dublin) which held a conspicuous place on a central table, was then cut with all due ceremony, and par- taken of by the assembled guests. After tea and other refreshments had bean served, the m»gnifhient array of wadding presents, laid out cn seveml tables in the ante-room, were min- utely inspected and greatly admired At about half-past three o'clook in the afternoon Mr and Mrs Platt left for Cahir railway station en route to the Continent. They drove away under the proverbial shower of rice, and amidst the hearty good wishes of their numerous friends, who bad assembled to witness their departure, and bid them 11 God-speed." In front of the bouse lqaite a large crowd of the tenants, neighbours, household staff, and labourers, bad also gathered to join in thin demonstration of kindly feeling, and to wish the happy pair every blessing. As the carriage drove away it was observed with the greatest delight and amusement that someone had tied a pair of old white satin slippers to one of the wheels, and this emblem of Rood luck remained distinctly visible from the house until the vehicle reached the eud of the avenue. The bride's travelling dress consisted of brown satin-faced oloth, trimmed with pink hat to match, trimmed with sable tails, and coat of gresn oloth, lined with far, The house party comprised Mr and Mrs Perry, Mr W.

NORTH WALES COMMERCIAL TRAVELLERS' ASSOCIATION. The annual dinner at the North Wales Com. mercial Travellers' Association was held at the Grosvenor Hotel, Chester, on Saturday night. Mr George A. Dickson presided, and the com- pany included Mr R. A. Yerburgh, M.P., the Mayor of Chester (Mr W. H. Churton), the Sheriff (Mr John Jones), Mr J. Ambrose Lloyd (President of the Association), &c. After the loyal toasts, the CHAIRMAN pro- posed "The Commercial Travellers' Schools and the Commercial Travellers' Benevolent Institu- tion." He explained that the object of the benevolent institution was to establish a fund for the relief of necessitous commercial travel-4 lers being members, who were aged or incapaci- tated, and for their widows. The institution had been established since 1849, and the object of that gathering was to enlist more suh- scribers, especially among commercial travel- lerll. In this connection he mentioned that a custom prevailed among commercial travellers of contributing a penny each day towards the sohools and the be,.volet ir,stitut;on, and said that! th it produced E4000 per year. There were 226 members of the North Wales branch of the Associlltion. Mr LEWIS HARTLICY (Bangor) responded. Mr J. S. HOLMES, in proposing 11 The Houses of Parliament," said he did not ai.v that the House of Lords did not oed reforming, but he submitted that thoughtful men would admit that it would be a very sad thing for England if they had no second chamber. Mr YEHBURGH, M.P., in replving, said that happily on occasions of that kind people of all sections of political belief agreed to meet to- gether in harmony, and therefore he would not allude further than he could help to the question of the House of Lords, but he considered that the interests of a country so sreat as theirs could not, without the gravest danger, be entrusted to the control of one chamber. So far ItS he knew, no commercial undertaking in the country would be conducted upon the lines of having its inte-ests entrusted to one body for a period of seven years. They owed the foundation of the political freedom of this country to the baronets of England, who obtained the Magna Charta from King John. He was bound to say that the House of Commons represented the interests of the commerce of the country, and he was glad to see that the commerce, which declined in 1893, was showing signs of revival. The e were two wavs in which the House of Commons could assist commerce. One was by helping their commercil classes to perfect their education, and the other was by keepine the navy sufficiently strong ti efficiently prote't their commerce. They might be absolutely s'lre that the commerce of the country would be safe in the hands of the Government whether it was a Torv or a Radical Government (hear, hear.) Mr AMBROSE LLOYD acknowledged the toaat of The Chester and North Wales Commercial Travellers' Association i" and the other toasts included the healths of the Mayor, Sheriff, and Corporation of Chester, the guests, the chair- man, the past chairman, and the ladies. During the evening £120 was subscribed to the funds of the benevolent institution and the schools, as against between 980 and 990 last year.
The "Melbourne Argus" reports the dEath of M Arthur Watson Lloyd, son of Sir Horatio Lloyd, county-conrt judge for Chester and North Wales, and well known under his stage name of Arthur Rigby. He hid for some time been a member of Messrs. Willioms)n and Muegroves Opera Company

Committee meets club representa- tives at Chester at seven o'clock to-morrow (Satur- day). The committee of the Bangor olub ap- pointed Messrs Hampshire and Watson to represent theta at the meeting, and Mesars Knight and Wood were selected by the Swifts oommittee. The meet- tag at Chester occupied a considerable length of time, and after hearing the evidence from both the representatives the Association decided in favoar of Bangor. I understand that the Swifts' representa- tives were awfully cat op, and when the news was received at Llandudno it didn't go down at all. On Saturday, under the auspices of the Bangor Football Club, a junior competition for boys under 18 was held. The prizes offered were eleven silver medals with Rold centres for the first team, and eleven silver medals for the secoud team. This is the first competition of its kind held in Bangor, and it proved a great success, financially and otbsrwis, and there is no doubt the home commit. tee will promote a similar competition next year. The following teams entered: Casuals, Penmaen Swifts, Crewe Villa Reserve, Burnley Bwifts, Celts, Penrhyn Ogwen Juniors, Glasgow Rangers, Druios, Mountain Swifts, Lavan Villa, and Queen a Park. First round Casuals beat Peomaen Swifta by two goals to nil, Crewe ViUa Reserve beat Burnley Swifts by two goals to one, Celts beat Penrhyn Ogwen Juniors by two goals to nil, Glasgow Raug- ers beat Druids by a oorner kick to nil, Mountain Swifts beat Lavan Villa by two goals to nil, Queen's Park a bye. Second round Casuals beat Crewe Villa Reserve by one goal to nil, Glasgow Rangers beat Celts by two goals to nil, Queen's Park beat Mountain Swifts by two goals to nil. Semi-final: Casuals beat Qapeu's Park by eight goals to one; Glasgow Rangers a bye. The final is to be played on some future date. On Saturday there was a splendid game witnessed at the Racecourse between the Llandudno 8wifts and Wrexham. The ground was hard, owing to the frost, and rendered play difficult. The home team pressed ssvere'y, and at the end of about a quarter- of-au-hour's Vav Beeston, one of the half-backs, scored with efoug dropping shot. Soon afterwards Trevor Owen headed a second goal for Wrexham. The teams crossed over with Wrexham leading by two goals to oil. Robinson, one of the home backs, did not reappear wben the game was resumed. He was hurt in the back on thn previous Saturday, and deemed it best not to strain himself, in view of an important Welsh Cup tie. Wrexham maintained the npper hand, and putting on anotbei point won by three goals to one. The match played between 8. Asupb and Rhyl on Saturday, on the ground of the lormM, enued in favour of S.. Asaph by one goal to nil. The re-p'ayed tie in the second round of the Welsh Junior Cup between the Llandudno Swifts Reserves an 1 Fliut Reserves was decided at Lian. dudno on Saturday. The game, in the first fcalf, was of a very quick character, aud, if anything, the Swifts hdti slightly the best of matters, but at the call of half-time no scoring had taken place. Seemingly the decisions of the referee did not give the keen spectarors of Llandudno sati-laotiou, aud Mr Re.feree, at half-time, informed them that if the hooting was continued he would have to stop the game. Flint showed excellent play, and before their opponents were well set they drew firt blood. Llandudno were equal to the OCC"810n, and directly afterwards Path equalised. Tne visitors were again suec-icsful in placing the ball into the net, and won a good game by two goals to one. Flint on Saturday journeyed ova to Holywell to play their return league match. Flint started, and even play ensued,and at the callcf bill-time Holy- well were leading by one goal to nil. To-day (Saturday) the Bangor team will journey to Brymbo to play their tie in the fou,tt, round of the Welsh Senior Cap, and the lollowing have been selected to represent the home team Goal, W. Arridge; backs, k, Lewis and W. Williams; halves, Backland, Sam Roberts, and W. H. Jones forwsrds, Newman, T. Thomas, Stewart, W. A. Hughes, and R. Owen. Ruthin are to be down at Bangor to-day to play their league matcb, and as the first contingent of Bangor will be at Brymbo the Juniors will have to try conclusions with the visiting team.
