Correspondence. I All letters intended for publication must comply with th" I following conditions I.-They must be on public questions only, and not personal in character further than is necessary for the discussion of the subject. II.-They must be written carefully and concisely —on one side of the paper only—ready for the prea, as we have not time at our disposal to re-write cor- respondence, and do not wish to publish effusions in the garb in which they are some times presented nor space for long rambling letters. IlL-They must oe authenticated (under cover if wished) by the real name and address of the writer accompanying the M.S. ELECTION OF HONORARY SURGEON TO I THE WREXHAM INFIRMARY. SIR,-It has just come to my knowledge that a candidate for the above has obtained promises of votes before the vacancy arose, and that Dr. Evans, our Medical Officer of Health, just recovering from a severe attack of scarlet fever, caught in the performance of his duty, is much prejudice! in his catlvas thereby. Dr. Evans served the Infirmary as House Surgeon for many years and h. to my knowledge, much respected by a large number of the people he has attended to in this town. I have not a .J ¿. JL't wutu to say against, ine rival candidate, with whom 1 am, socially, on exactly the same terms as with Dr. Evans, but I do love a fair start in every race, and think that all the Governors of the Infirmary should know what I have stated above befo e recording thtir votes at the im pen dinl- election. Allwhoqytnpathize with Esau in the Biblical story, will admit that the pathos of his despairiug cry would have been only deepened if his absence at the critical moment had been due to an illness contracted in the path of duty. —I am, &c., ALFRED S. J OSES, Lieut.-Cnl., Member of Infirmary Committee. Abenbury Cottage, Wrexham, Oct. 13th, 1S84. [We are asked by Colonel Jonei to state that the publication of the above, and its circulation among the Governors, was without his knowledge or authority.-Ei-. W.A.] SIR,—I understand that a letter date 113th Octob?r, written by Lieut.-Col. A. S. Jones, respecting the election of Honorary Surgeon to the Infirmary, has been circulated in circular form in anticipation of its publication in the newspapers. As one of the candidates, I feel that the statement in the letter calls for a brief notice on my part, that I wish siiaply to deny commencing my canvass till after the resignation of Dr. Dickenson. Of this, the Governors will be the best judges.—I am, &c., H. VENABLES PALIN, M.B. Wrexham, lGth October, 18S4. MATTHEW JONES V. RHOS BURIAL I BOARD. SIR,-In your last issue M. Jones brings an I accusation against me, as one of the Board, of telling an untruth, with regard to the interview he had with Thomas Charles, Ponkey. He says that he did not go to the house, which I found to be correct, but that does not alter the question at all. Whether two men are speaking in a house, or within 10 yards or 100 yards of the house, makes no difference. But, by the expression used by T. Charles with me in Welsh, it meins either way. Hence the paltry error, and for the benefit of those of your readers that are able to understand Welsh, I will put the phrase in question down—" Mae Matthew Jones wedi bod acw." The plain statement of T. Charles is as follows, that M. Jones said that his purpose in coming to him was, he wanted him to bury in the consecrated ground and not in the portion he selected the day before with the Clerk of the Board, and as for the veracity of T. Charles he is above suspicion in the neighbourhood.— I am, &c., BENJAMIN WILLIAMS. High-street, Rhos. SIR,-I find in your last issue a letter on the above subject signed Matthew Jones," in which he denies the statement made by myself and other members of the Board respecting him. I must say that I am exceedingly surprised that the clerk of the Rhos Church could have forgotten himself so much and condescend to deny his own words and actions. It would not be surprising at all if Matthew Jones should deny having written the letter, and indeed, I should not be much surprised if he did. However, as legal proceedings have been taken against the Board on the 7th inst., and the letter dated the 9th, it is evident that it was written with the object to prejudice the Board in the action. It being so I think it wiser to abstain from making any comments upon it at present. But I will simply state that I firmly and conscientiously adhere to what I have said as being the truth and nothing but the truth." —I am, &c.. EDWARD HOOSON. Rhos, Rua';on, October 13th, 1884. THE DIOCESAN CONFERENCE. SIR,—Will you kindly allow me to supply, as a supplement to my letter of last week, a few figures to show the educational status of our clergy at present, compared with that of twenty years ago. According to the Diocesan Calendar for 1863-the last puh. lished until this year-the clergy then numbered 256 and according to the one of this year they now num- ber 294, educated respectively thus :— 1863. 1884. Universities. 169 1:3a Lampeter. 36 75 Other places 51 SO Tr_. -31 1 At 1 • •< 1 T- • «. • x ou win ocserve tnat in iat) i tne universities were nearly two-thirds of the whole, whilst at present they are less than one-half. To be now in the same propor- tion to the others as then they ought to have been 194 instead of 139. Of those of the present date educated at other places," a large number-at the least 25-who were con- sidered not sufficiently educated to be ordained at. at. Asaph, have nevertheless been licensed to curacies, and many of them since promoted to good livings, in the room of some 40 graduates or more who have left the diocese. At the late Church Congress. Canon Tellet, when speaking of the losses sustained by the Irish Church through disestablishment, said As parishes not seldom prefer a clerk with fpopular gifts without learning to one of learning without equally popular gifts, the Church may suffer the loss that, in com- parison with other professions, she will have fewer men of condition and culture amongst her clergy." It looks indeed as if we were already in this diocese, under our present regime without disestablishment, fast coming to the state spoken of by Canon Tellet. For many of our parishes are already filled with clerks with popular gifts without learning," only with us the popular gifts are often nothing more than a good memory and a loud voice.-lam, &c., Oct. 14. REFORM OR DISESTABLISHMENT. SIR,— Your correspondent44 Reform or Disestablish- ment in his letter on this subject has pointed out a very weak spot in the Church's armour. There is another point also in my opinion that should be brought before the bar of public opinion, and that is the importation of clergy from other Dioceses into this to the discouragement of clergy who have lived andllaboured well all their lives in this Diocese. Can any one allege that there were not in this Diocese clergy equally as capable as any that have been fished up from the nethermost parts of Wales, aad forced upon parishes where their Welsh is Hwntu and but barely understood, to say nothing of their being strangers in every sense of the word to their people. What wonder that Mold is now vacant and that the clergy generally, except the favoured few who have ear of His Lordship at St. Asaph, are disgusted with their position and seizs the first opportunity of escape. Unfortunately pother Bishops are not so ready to swell their clergy, and consequently as things go, the lot of some of our clergy in this Diocese, many of them men of college training, and education is "not a happy one." Unfortunately it is the Church herself that is the greatest sufferer, and it is to be feared that for some time to come the Diocese of St. Asaph will fail to attract any but men of mediocritv. Look around and see how few local men have entered the ministry. Even if they should do so, not one in ten remains in his native country. The idea of a genuine Welsh Bishop was once very fascinating, but we have now counted the cost, and the gilt has long since been rubbed off.-I am, &c., Ap RHYS. October 15th, 1881. DANGERS OF RAILWAY TRAVELLING. SIR,— hatever be the view taken of the recent outrage on the railway between Whitchurch and Nantwich, such an occurence must bring home very forcibly to the minds of many, the daily increasing dangers of railway travelling in this country. Apart from the actual risk incurred by entrusting their lives to a system of locomotion always dangerous, through the fallibility of man, however perfect in theory and arrangement, travellers are also in peril from the violence of men, and the accusations of unscrupulous women, which in many cases bring undeserved dis- grace on hitherto unblemished reputations. There is no doubt that the present arrangement of railway carriages, by division into small compartments. affords an abundance of opportunities to those who live by unlawful means to ply their heartless trade. Of violent attacks and murders the world soon hears by the subsequent discovery of the perpetrators; but in the case of unfounded accusations of women, the difficulties of refutation, coupled with an instinctive horror of even standing on trial for such a cause, often lead the imprudent to arrange a compromise, which ever afterwards supplies strong evidence of guilt, and encourages these debased specimens of humanity, by the success cf their stratagems, to continue their abominable practices. Certainly, after much pressure being brought to bear, railway companies have at last taken a step in the right direction, by the introduction of compartments reserved exclusively for ladies; but this is only a step, and a short one. The refusal of the request of the wlole body of commercial travellers, made some short time ago to the railway companies, that compartments might be reserved for them in all important trains, is a shame and disgrace to those in whose hands the management of the traffic of our country is placed. Thus remonstrance and suggestion having failed, it would seem a fitting subject for Parliamentary interference. But, say the supporters of the existing system, the only alternative is the adoption of the American open car, and this is a device which would do away with the acknowledged superiority of the present arrangement in point of comfort. That this is so can be granted for the sake of argument; never- theless, are we to weigh a slight diminution of comfort against the possible loss of life, or what is to most mo.-e dreaded undeserved loss of reputation Again, it mLht be denied that this is the only alternative for there are several other suggestions, which might find opposition at first, through the prejudice always existing in favour of old arrange- ments, but which would in time answer the purpose of putting a stop to what can by no means be called an imaginary danger. At a recent meeting of an important railway company a subject of discussion was the great decrease in the number of first-class travellers. Might it be suggested that possibly one cause is the greater safety found in the more frequented third-class carriage !-1 am, &c., W.T.H. CLERICAL DOINGS IN ANGLESEA. Bill,-As the action against the Bi-h >;> •>? Bangor to recover tithes said to be illeailv tj.ken hy him, the plaintiff being the llev. J. Wi ii,i. Meyrick, of Llandegfan, is nuw in the Cour.ty Co: t. I wish to call to your readers the circumstances of this most extraordinary case. It is more than three and a half years old in its origin. Liandegfan, the parish in question, is half-way between Beaumaris and Menai Bridge, and Sir R. Buckley is or was the patron. It is worth JE336 a year and residence. There are 1000 parishioners, and as early as September, 1SS1, they were impatient at having only one service, and that a very short one on Sunday. Mr Meyrick holds this living with Beaumaris. He appointed no curate to supply his place at either Church when he was away, and after due notice by the Bishop < f Bangor, as to his persistent neglect, the Rev. E. Owen was licensed by the Bishop to supply the growing want, and he made his appearance, reading his license in March, 1SS1, at the Church. He and the Bishop's Secretary- were refused admittance to the vestry, but when the sermon was over, and while the Rector was disrobing, the Curate read his license, and said there would be a service that evening at six o'clock. The Rector, who had now disrobed, stood on the communion steps, protested formally against the entire proceedings, and said there would be no service that evening. Then having cleared the Church and churchyard, locked the gate and the doors, and refused the keys to the Churchwardens, he drove off with them. Shortly before six o'clock the latter forced the doors, and the service took place. No one was there on behalf of Mr Meyrick. A new iock was put on the door, and a Key was sent to the Rector. On the next Saturday, he asked a blacksmith to break open the door, he having no key with him. The man refused, but the Rector induced his boy to do sn, and replaced the lock. The next morning he officiated in Welsh, and then addressed the congregation in English, saying there would be a service at four, as he had to ntlidate at Beaumaris at six. He accused the Bishop of irregularity and left. Outside the Church, Mr Balzagette, one t.,f the Bishop's secretaries, addressed the crowd, and showed how entirely the Rector was in the wrong. The latter seeing the crowd so much interested pushed his way through and walked up the road to Beaumaris, leaving his carriage to follow him. Such is or was one of the edifying scenes which like a. Chinese play, have been dragging themselves along during the last three years in this picturesque corner of Wales. At length the living seems to have been sequestrated by the Bishop thus defied, and the power to do so is disputed by the Rector, and will be determined, not in the Ecclesiastical, but in the County Court. It will be an interesting case. The Welsh Bishops seem to be mere ornamental heads of dioceses, in the year of grace, 1884. Their monitions are defied, and they do not command from some of the clergy even personal respect, besides being in some cases pelte-J with literary abuse. In the Daily News of the same week, we have a row royal at the Chnr-h of St Mark, Victoria Park, London, tw J kings being the defendants. The former in. cumbent having died, a new one was appointed by I; the Trustees." Though he was by name a Sweet- man, he does not seem to have been acceptable to the congregation, or to an active portion of them, and they determined to hold a hostile meeting in the Church premises, a mission hall. The peoples' warden carried the keys to his house to prevent this, where- upon the two kings and another paid him a domiciliary visit, and demanded them. He refused to give them up and was violently assaulted. His better-half and son, who came to the rescue, were also assaulted, and there was an exci ed crowd outside. The police had to be sent for to clear the street. In this squabble two clergymen are pitted against each other—Stevens v. Sweetinati-atid as neither party will or can accede to Mr Catlin's recommendation to settle the dispute peacefully, the quarrel is to be judged in an adjourned court, and more of the dirty linen of the State Church is to be washed in public. The attention of the forth- coming conference, ailuded to by your correspondent of last week, will no doubt be directed to this state of things. Perhaus thev will susrsest a remedv for such I grave scandals.—I am, &c., -1 A LIBERATIONISM

PORT VALE V. CHIRK.-Oll Saturday a match was played between these clubs at Chirk. There were about 300 spectators, in spite of the unpropitious weather, rain and hail falling at frequent intervals during the game. The game terminated in favour of the visitors by five goals to one. OSWESTRY V. CASTLE BLUES (SHREWSBURY).—These teams met at Oswestry on October 4th. There was a large gathering of spectators to witness the form displayed by the holders of the Shropshire Challenge Cup and the winners of the Welsh Association's trophy. The Oswestrians defeated the visitors by eight goals to none. MOLl) V. ALYN STARS (GwERSYLLT).-On Saturday a match was played between these clubs, on the ground of the former. The captain of thd Mold team ainng the toss, preferred playing with the wind in his favour, and before half-time was called the Mold team had scored the goal. In the second half-time the Alyn Stars scored 2 goals, which were put in by E. Roberts, and W. H. Gars ton, thus securing a victory for the visitors. CHIRE: V.

After some rather wild play in consequence of the high wind, the home team won a stubbornly contested and pleasant game, by two goals to one, Bellion scoring for the Cestrians, W. H. Kay and H. W. Acton for Sandycroft. The following were the teams Hydraulic Goal, E. Hughes; backs, R.

Hunter, secretary Welsh Football Association, NEWTOWN V. WEST BROMWICH ALBION.This match was played at Newtown on Saturday, in the presence of a large number of spectators. Although the weather during the early part of the day was stormy, it considerably improved by three o'clock. Newtown won the toss and kicked off down hill, with a slight wind in their favour, and in fifteen minutes scored their first goal. The visitors now played a very pretty passing game, but failed to get the leather past Townshend (who showed splendid form in goal). On half time being called it was thought the visitors would soon equalise matters, but the Newtown for- wards played so well together that in less than half an hour they put the ball through the West Brom- wich goal four times, quite upsetting the Staffordshire cup holders' calculations. The visitors' forwards now took the ball to the Newtown goal, and out of a scrim- mage kicked a goal. when time was called. The game was said to be the fastest ever played in Newtown, and the home club are to be congratulated on the good form they shewed against such a crack club, it being the first representative team Newtown have put on the field this season. The fine centering of the wings well merited the applause it evoked. The game resulted in a win for Newtown by five goals to one. Teams-Newtown: goal, Townshend; backs, E. Gittins and H.

Mr Farring- ton presided, the following clubs being represented :— Bangor F.C., Bangor Athletic, Carnarvon Athletic, Carnarvon Heroes, Llandudno, Colwyn Bay, Con. way, Rhyl, and Llanrwst. A letter was read from the Portmadoc representative expressing regret at his in. ability to attend. Major Platt was elected president of the association for 1884-5, the following gentlemen being requested to act as vice-presidents :-Messrs W. Rathbone, M.P., Assheton-Smith, Albert Wood, Sidney Piatt, and R. Lloyd James. Blr W. Pughe, N.P.Bank, Bangor, was re-elected honorary treasurer; and Mr A. D'Oyly Watkins, general secretary. It was decided that the association, having been affiliated to the English association, ithe rules of the latter should be adopted, so far as they related to the game, and that the players of each club belonging to the Northern Welsh Football Association should be registered. Several members complained of the ex- elusion of the North Wales Football Association from the Welsh International Team, it being stated that up to the present, representatives of Welsh teams have been limited to those within a radius of 25 miles from Wrexham. The secretary was instructed to forward to the English Association a strong representation on the subject, and to point out the unfairness of select- ing a so-called Welsh International Team," from which North Wales was virtually excluded—Carnar- von, Anglesey, Flint, Merioneth, and Denbigh having no representative. It was decided that the draw for the tics for the Challenge Cup, now held by Bangor, should take place at the adjourned meeting at Con. way on Monday. Arrangements for matches were re- ported to be pending with the following clubs Liver. pool and District, Belfast, Derby, Cheshire, Man- chester, Staffordshire, Association of Wales and ) Border Counties. I CAERGWRLE WANDERERS V. CROWN (WREXHAM).— This match was played at Wrexham on Saturday, and resu ted in a victory for the visitors of 1 goal and 2 disputed to none. ST. IARYoS (CHESTER) V. WREXHAM LEVER.—A match between the above teams was played on Saturday on the ground of the latter. During the first half of the game the Lever played against the wind and had the game in their own hands, scoring three goals to their opponents' none. In the second half the Lever succeeded in adding three more goals to their score, and then owing to a heavy downfall of rain the game was adjourned. On resuming play the visitors managed to score three times, and the game ended in a win for the Lever by 6 goals to 3. I OSWESTRY V. CREWE ALEXANDRA. Journeying from Crewe to Oswestry on Saturday, the visitors found the home team fresh from their eight goals' victory over the Shrewsbury Castle Blues (Shropshire cup holders), and confident of success. U, pon winning the toss, Oswestry kicked off with the advantage of a strong wind, but half-time found the Alexandra goal intact. Upon resuming both teams settled down, and after thirty minutes' play Bell headed a beautiful goal for Crewe, who continued to press their op- ponents, but were unable to increase the total, and on the cessation of hostilities the Welsh cupholders were defeated by one goal to nil. Teams-Crewe Alexandra Parker, goal Conde and Downs, backs; Bell (captain) and Marsh, half-backs Taylor, Wat- kins, Oakely. Fennell, Done and Edwards, forwards.

I Hearing that a tootball match was going to be played on the Recreation Ground, Rhosddu, early on I Monday morning, between the Police and a team from the Foundry near the Station, I proceeded thither. The game having commenced it was soon apparent that the Police would not have all their own way, their opponents making them act on the defensi ve, which was very strange to them, I should think, it being very seldom that they are compelled to take that side in most of their actions, and when they do take this part it is to be hoped they do not come out of the action with such a defeat as they received on Monday, i.e., seven goals to none. ?l e Sergeant, in goal, did not shine so brilliantly as in the match against the Fire Brigade. In this case he made a poor defence, missing several shots which could have been easily stopped. I noticed one of our guardians of the peace a spectator at the match. How was it he was not playing, after having made such a debut in the match above referred to. On that occasion he showed himself-well, I won't say anything further, but I hope he is not retiring from football circles so early. ONLOOKER.
SPORTING. I [FROM OUR SPORTING CORRESPONDENT. I I LONDON, Thursday. The racing season is fast drawing to a close, and ere long we shall son be in the thick of tha illegitimate business. The Cambridgeshire is the race set for discussion, and the following are the PROBABLE STARTERS AND JOCKEYS. I PRISAT J. watts FLORENCE F. Webb MACHEATU .Giles or Cannon A CHIDLC Archer SAXDIWAY G. Barrett BENDIGO Snowden CIIISLEH V RST F-igan PIZ.\RRO. Luke ST. MEDARO c. Wood THE PRINCE .J. Osborne QUICKLIME .Tomlio30n COELU'NA F. Barrett STOCKHOLM Lemaire SAILOR PRINCE Turner Kiss. AMALFI j. Wocdburn THE DON .G. Woodbura l\bsTER OF ￼ MASTER OF ARTS .Morrer u)mmencing witn tne top weights, 1 must say that Prism (4yrs, 9st 71b) is one of the finest weight carriers I ever saw. He is a grandson of that celebrated horse Stockwell, and resembles him in nearly every point. Prism, the best horse the present Lord Zetland ever owned, is said to have improved wonderfully lately, and in a recent spin with Amalfi and two stable companions he fairly romped home from them. This son of Uncas will have the assistance of that celebrated artist in the saddle, Watts. Florence an-l Archiduc upon the Cesarewitch running are nearly one and the same animal. Granted that the former is undoubtedly a good mare, I fancy Archiduc will beat Mr Hammond's representative. At the Bushes Archiduc was pulling Archer out of the saddle, and of all the horses engaged in the Cambridgeshire I should think that Mr Lefevre's son of Consul is the best adapted to climb the severe hill at the finish of the race in question. Sandiway upon the Leger running is thrown into the race. She showed herself to be in form last week at Newmarket. In my opinion the Duke of Westminster's mare is not built on the lines of a Cambridgeshire nag, for she is barely 15 hands high, and I shall look elsewhere for the winner. Chislehurst (4yrs, Sst 21b) upon some of his running has a fair chance, but I hardly think he is within 71b of Archiduc. Last year's winner, Bendigo, is said to have grown into a tine horse, and Mr Barclay makes it no secret that Ban Battle's son will again be hailed the winner of the Newmarket race. St. Medard is very much after the same stamp of animal as Sandiway, and is too cobby to show to advantage over this course. C. Wood has been retained bv Captain Machell, so he may select the second in the Two Thousand as his mount. If all that I hear is true about Macheath the race is as good as over. Macheath has shown a liking for this course, and if backed by the party in a right fashion it will take a good animal to show him a clean pair of heels. Clairvaux if sound would run well. The Don, Kiss, Prestonpans, and Amalfi, I have no faucy for. Stockholm is sure to be in the van, and has been backed to win a good stake within the last few days. Pizarro won a good trial with Montroyd an I Jo vial, and is fancied by tha stable. S nt M- Pcina ia a rough outsider. If I were to take three to baa1: the field, I should select Archiduc, Prism, and Bendigo. But I crust single these down and plump for ARCHIDUC, and take PRISM ani BENDIGO as likely to give him most trouble. The Dewhurst Plata over seven furlongs will attract a good field both numerically and classically, and I must go for CASUISTRY COLT, who will be found to have hnproved qu:te 71b since he made his debut in the Niid=k Plate. My other selection3 are HOUSEWIFE for the Home Produce; Zvvvzt} or WHITE NUS, Home Bred Stakes; ST. HOXORAT, HHUE Produce Sweepstakes KINGWOOD or ST. HELENA, Chevely Stakes; BANGLE rT 1""8..

r Trade Intelligence. -i-" COAL AND IRON. BARROW, Monuay.— ihere is no improvement in the tone of the hematite pig iron trade, and sales tlur. ing the week have not been beyond recent averages. The inquiry experienced from home and Continental is very limited, and makers find a difficulty in book- ing order forward which represent long weight of metal. The stocks in hand are considerable, and are not being reduced. The output ix, however, main- tained, and it is probable that no need will exist for a further reduction of the output for some weeks to come as steelmakers are rather more busy than of late, and it is probable their mills will be better em- ployed during the winter than has seemed likely lately. Shipbuilders are expecting a few new orders. Iron ore quiet, and in large stock. Coal and coke quiet. Shipping indifferently employed. MIDDLESBOROUGH, Tuesday.—Business has been slack to-day, owing to the rumours that have been afloat relative to the abandonment of the master' combination. The combination to restrict production is still in existence, and must now continue till the end of February, but makers are now at liberty to sell at whatever price they choose, and some have sold to-day at 36s 6d, though most producers still ask 37s. Merchants quote 36s prompt, and 3d less for- ward. It is expected that buying will be brisker now, because the navigation season is at an end, and mer- chants have very small stocks. Forge pigs are a little stronger, 34i being asked, but a large proportion of orders on hand have been booked at 6d less. Ship- ments are not so good as last month. Warrants are offered at 36s 3d without finding buyers. WOLVERHAMPTON, Wednesday. Common bars were plentiful to-day at £ 515s to £ 6; superior, C6 10-i best, 27 to JE7 10s; and on working up sheets were quoted 210 Is. singles, by the thin-sheet houses soft steel singles, 212 charcoal sheets, 220; common and medium pigs smelted here and in neighbouring districts were a trifle weakened by the abundance of Cleveland supplies. Business was quiet in both crude and rolled iron, but the market was sustained by the collapse of the colliers' strike.

AGRICULTURE. w I FARMING AND THE CORN TRADE. I Toe Mam juane express 8f Monday says-" The heavy rainfall which has been general during the latter part of the past week, has been of great benefit to the land, and the wheats will now go into the ground under more normal conditions. The mangel crop is said to have ripened fast, and will be lifted as soon as weather permits. Very little thrashing has been possible and consequently farmers' deliveries have fallen off, enabling sellers to maintain late rates. The tendency of the weather has been to make the wheats rather tender, but they are all so dry naturally that no appreciable difference has yet been apparent. The inquiry for barleys continues to be confined to the finest samples, medium qualities of malting sorts hav- been slow to sell at former rates. Other articles have been without material change during the week. Trade for foreign wheat off stands in London continues: f) drag slowly along without animation or tangible im. provement. The increased and constantly increasing rates of the proportion of breadstuffs imported in the shape of flour to that of wheat is the great incubus on the business. In Liverpool the trade has been quiet at previons rates." The Fdrmtr says-" Weather bright and cold. The market supplies were moderate. English wheat made former prices, but sold slowly in retail. Foreign wheat was steady in value, demand keeping restricted. Flour was difficult of sale under large imports; prices unchanged. Malting barley quiet value steady. Foreign feeding barley deacer. Maize and oats were dearer 3d to 6d, irregularly. Beans and peas sold fairly at full quotations. Market disappointing." AGRICULTURAL SEED TRADE, Wednesday.—Messrs. J. Shaw and Sons, seed merchants, 37, Mark-lane, E. C., write that American cloverseed is still neglected, and rather higher prices now come by cable. For alsike and white there is also a firmer feeling. Useful samples of English cow-grass are offering at moderate prices. Winter tares have recently been in improved request. For canary and hempseed the trade con- tinues exceedingly slow; of the former, the arrivals have been large. How FARMERS PERPETUATE THE POTATO DISEASE. —The leaves and haulm of the potato decay during the winter, but these resting spores survive, and are washed by the rains into the soil. When the proper season comes round they burst, expelling a number of moving spores, or germinate in the damp earth, or on any ordinary natural substance on which they chance to rest. It has been proved that they may be dor- mant for at least three years, and then wake up to their work. These resting spores are very abundant in the old exhausted seed potatoes in the autumn, at the time when the crop is lifted. They are equally common in decayed potato refuse. Farmers have often unwittingly done everything possible to facilitate the progress of the disease. Many of them, laudably desirous of making the most of everything, have the haulms, decaying tubers, and other refuse of their potato crops removed to their manure heaps, where they rot and become manure. But the little resting spores do not rot; they lie quiet with all their vitality shut up in them till the spring, and when the farmer has his manure spread thick over his potato fields, he is sowing broadcast myriads of these little germs, which will yet grow up in a mischevious crop. If he feeds his stock with unboiled diseased potatoes he im only taking another way of preserving the germs. Boiling destroys, however, the vitality of the resting spores. On the other hand, if he allows the decaying haulms to lie about his fields the resting spores, will be washed into the soil, and into ditches and drains, and such moist situations are especially favourable for their preservation and germination. It is thus of first importance that the diseased tubers given to cattle should always be thoroughly boiled, and the other refuse of potato fields effectually destroyed by burning' In this way the resting spores are killed. Further, as they have been proved to be able to survive for at least three years, potato crops should never be planted in the same ground unless at intervals of four or five years. If the farmer were to adopt these pre- cautions he would at least have the consciousness that he had done his duty, and that, so far as lay with him. he had taken the steps requisite to prevent disease.-Good Words.
CHESTER DAIRY SHOW. THE DUKE OF WESTMINSTER ON DAIRY FARMING. The two days' show of the Cheshire Dairy Farmers' Association, opened on Tuesday at the Linenhall, Chester. The entries of cheese were not quite so numerous as last year, owing to the decision of the council not to permit duplicate entries from the same dairy. The quality was, however, magnificent; a finer exhibit of the staple production of Cheshire has never before been got together. So keen was the competition that the judges had great difficulty in coming to a decision. A new feature was the making of separate classes for acid cheese and factory cheese. Mr H. R. Dutton, of Spuraton Lower Hall, Tarpor- ley, carried off first in the district class for the best 20 cheese over 10 cwt, also first in open class for the best three cheese of any weight, and the gold medal given by the Cheshire Land Agents' Association. The quality of Mr Dutton's cheese, which were very large, handsome, and coloured, may be inferred from the fact that they were sold on the ground at the extra- ordinary price of 100s. Mr Thomas Finchett, of Rushton, was second in the district class with the old. fashioned slow-ripening type of Cheshire cheese. In the second class, for cheese of smaller size, made in the district, Mr Samuel Challinor. of Beeston Castle, won with cheese remarkably white, pure in flavour, and crumbly in texture. In this class the exhibits of Messrs H. Done, Dangran Hall, Bangor, and S. Peate, Eyton, near Wrexham, were also commended. Mr Henry Willis, of Ridley Farm, Tarporley, won first prize in the acid cheese. The competition in the factory class was between the Duke of Westminster's factories at Aldford and Balderton. There were some 44 entries of butter, and the quality was much finer than has hitherto been the case at these shows. First prize in the cream butter was taken by Mrs Easby, of Blacon Point, wife of the bailiff to Mr T. Smith, sheriff of Chester, with butter of exquisite quality. There was a very interesting show of dairy implements. On Wednesday there was a very large attendance to witness the distribution of prizes by the Duchess of Westminster. Responding to a vote of thanks cn behalf of the Duchess, the Duke of Westminster, after stating that the association was in an increasingly prosperous condition, proceeded to refer to the supply of l?l He said it must be remembered that milk was the only article in agricultural productions which lately had paid its way at all. He had obtained some figures which he believed were approximately correct, as they had been derived from authentic sources. This year, he found, there were 2,350,000 cows in milk. and during the year there had been added 278,000 young stock, which was a very considerable increase. The value of milk produced in Great Britain amounted to the enormous sum of 24OOOOiOOO a year, and he might say in passing that the consumption of he believed, the whole of the native produce and that of foreign countries did not amount to much more than one-third of the cost of drink. They could only wish that that one-third; might be extended; and that as liquor went down milk would go up. (Applause). Connected with this pioduction of milk, there was an a-my of 300,000 milkers employed, who, at an average of 3s 6d a week, derived in wages 22,400,000 a year, besides the cost of dairymen and other expenses connected with the production. This referred to Great Britain. The foreign trade amounted in money value-that was, in milk production—to 21,500,000 a a month. One London firm alone cleared annually 230,000 by dealing with a French firm of milkmen in butter alone. Included in the foreign products which were supposed to be derived from milk came a very large quantity, he was sorry to say, of adulterated matter which was sold to the poorer classes under the name of cheese or butter. (Hear, hear). There was a very large and serious proportion of this, the most innocent material in which was hog's grease, without one drop of milk in the whole lot. His Grace referred also to the question of ensilage, and caused some laughter by stating that he had made an experiment with thistles. He confidently believed that by this time next year he would be able to report in favour of ensilage made entirely of thistles, (Laughter and cheers).

CORN, Tuesday.—There has been only a moderate attendance of the trade at the market to-diy, and a limited amount of business has been done in wheat, re- suiting in Id per cental decline on last week's quotations. Maize ruled firm, somewhat higher than on Friday. Floul" quiet at unchanged rates. Peas have been lower, and in moderate request at 3d decline. Beans firm at full prices. A coid temperature prevailed during the past week, but to-day it is much milder, the weather has been showery. and thereby favourable to the land for autumn sowing. The trade in foreign wheats bas ruled dull and lifeless, both on spot and for forward delivery, and in both positions the offerings are at lower rates than were obtainable a week ago. Home-grown wheats are less freely offered, and, with a fair demand, rather better prices are quoted in most of the privincial markets. PROVISION MARKET, Wednesday.-Bacon is without alteration either in supply or demand, and prices 11.18 firmer.
