THE ALLEGED BOGLrs CLERGYMAN JAMES COMMIT rED FOR TRIAL. At Penrhyndeadra'th on Friday, James James, Allt^las, L angorwen, near Abe-ystwyth, was brought np on remand charged with obtaining money by false pretences and with forgery and frind. Mr Lloyd Ctrter, Carnarvon, appeared to prosecute for the Treasury. The accused, who was undefended, pre- sented a downcast app araoce throughout the bear- ino- and scarcely onee rose his gaze from the floor. Inspector Marshall, Scotland Yard, repe ite 1 his previous evidence is to the arrest of the accused. Mrs Margaret Robert-, Temperance Hotel,P ;nrhyn- deudraeth, deposed that the accused came to lodge with her, giving his name as James A. or James Thomas James, and stating his old home was at Borth, • ear Aberystwyth, and that he had just returned from India. He was dressed as a clergyman. He stayed for nine days, stating at the end of that t me that he was going to a place the other side of London, at a talary of .£450 a year. She ear- him the loai of £3, Annie Gwen Davios, waitress at the Sportsman Hotel, Portmadoc, and a niece of the last witness, recognised the accuse i as the man who lo lg d with her aunt. At the request of her aunt, witness wrote two or thrae letters to tlia accused t. r the money lent him. Writing in reply from AIphamstone Rectory, Suffolk, the accused prefaced his letters with My Dear S ster in the Lord," and proceeded 10 say "that, cs spent money tor tha1; which was not bread- and their labonr. for that which did not satisfy, be ie the stomach of the n-w nature agreed with no :nq el,;o and every breeze oarr.ed illness, except the brd zes of the sanctuary." (Langhter.) He next related his trouble. Every trial and every wind of every nature workei to make him see more of the corrupti- bility of his nature, and more of the Lord in bis good- ness, and his uuch ing ableness towards Him. He had ba-kelided very far in spirit from the Lord. He hid rot yet heard an) thing of the thieves who had broken iot, hil b x and sto en his bank book for JJ12,000 in the London Bank. He acknowledged he owed be a int .Et, but sae had only leat. him .£3. He could not get ereii M lrom the bank until he got his bank book b ick. There was .£50 reward for information as to the bank book to the chief inspector of p dice in the eh "t City of London, and communication had been nt, out to all the banks of England, Wal s, Ssot- 1 in an 1 Ireland for them not to change cash, and hko v.-e t had been mde to nil the post oBies. iii-s Georgina L'homa-, librarian Carnarvon, proved that the accused caVed at the public library there, droase i as a clergyman, and borrowed Crockford's "Ciorioa Directory," but when it was returned on the following evening she found the pages oontaining the names of James missing. James Henry Pen-son, chief police-inipector, London and North Western Railway, at Euston Station, London, said the company bad received no complaints from any person named James as to lost ^Mis^Constanne Earoe, daughter of the Rev Wm. Eare>?, \lphamstone Reutjry, Ed?ex, stated that ahe acted'as amanuensis for her father, who *as in years. She caused an alvertisement t) be published in the Church Times tor August H last, for a priest. The accused replied, stating he was 26 yea-s of age, hid had two years' experience, and was a graduatj of Jesus College, Oxford, and St David s College, Lunpeter, h id a goodvoio-, and held moderate views. He gave several reference-, and signed him- geif "aTies A. James." He was taken on on trial, aud, if ultimately engaged, he was to get ii20 a yar ftrl,i live -it ttie ro,-t)r.v. He took a small p «rt in the service on tha 11th of October, and assisted her father iu the celebrat:on of the Holy Communion, and took the whole of the christening in the after noon. On returning to the rectory in the morning, the accused told witness and her h- «ther that he was an Oxford M A. When her br t'ler asked him about his hood, the accased said it was a Dublin h'1'1. During Divine service he wori a hood, cassock, sur lioa, aid a priest's rtole. Owing to the conflicting st..tementi he male her brother de- cided to make enquiries. Accused preiched on the following Sunday aft-rnoon. and was asked to make it reference to the late Archbishop of Cinterbnry. Iu the attempt to speak extempore he broke down. (Laughter). After leaving the Church he was re- quested to le we next day. He read his sermon, which was a vary goo l on', but witness had heard it before. (Liughter). i. < 13y the Chairman It was not t-ironsyh excoas of feeling he broke down. (Renowe i laughter). John Harvy Hooper, solicitor, vVorcesf?r, and diocesan registrar, proved sending a copy of Ordin- at on to a person describing himself as 'James Thomas James," who gave as a reason that he had lost ^James Thomas James, vicar of Valley End, Chob- bam Snrrey, stated that he wa< M.A., Oxford, and his name appeared in Crocktoris "Cloric-alDirectory." He did not kmw accused, and he did not write, nor authorise anyone to write for a copy of hi- ordination. Similar evideuce was given by John Alfred James, rector of Doddington, Gloucestershire, a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, who was ordained by the Bishop of Ossory, Irelanl. Ho never applie I for a copy of his letters of ordination. The accused pl.aded not guilty, and reserved his defence.. j. < He was committed for trial to the assizes at Dol- gelley.

THE COAL CONTRACTOR FREED FltOM BLAME. Mr B. E. Morgan said that, in reference t.) the made aga nst Mr Meehan, the coal contractor, by the Masw -1 thR last meet nNT. Mr M«ehf»" ha t complained that the statement made by him (Mr M-rgan) was very pr»ju iic.al to his business, and would do him a lot of harm. He now wished to withdraw the st,temerits the Ob,c-rver reported him to have made—that the contractor "Vas in a very small way of business, and that he t-ndered to supply the coal it a lower price than would pay him. He (Mr Morgan) found that the contractor was in a very large way of business that he not only kept two horses at work, but had trucks running on the railway to bring coal. Tha Chairman That is very honourable of you, Mr Morgan. Mr Meehan the < appeared and laid before the Board a copy of the Observer oontaining a report with the charges made against him. He then gave to the Board a lengthy explanation, and the members expressed themselves as perfectly satisfied that he had supplied the proper quality.

FROM THE MAN UNDER WATER. You don't mind taking & lesson, do you P provided it Is short and doesn't oblige you to study hard f "No." We thought not. We must always be learners, you know; never get too old or too wise for that. Well then, here it is. Perhaps you have seen one of these professional divers go down into the water to inspect a sunken wreck or to search for something that has dropped in. He gets inside of his ugly-looking case, or water-proof armour, claps on his head-piece and down he goes; out of sight and hearing in half a minute-down among the ruck and mud at the bottom. Of course they have to keep pumping air down to him through the hose or he would suffocate right out of hand. But when he wants more air, or less, or wants to be hauled np, how is he to let the men on the dock or in the boat know t You answer me like the click of a gun lock: He will signal with the cord he hold. in hit hand." Right. Now for the application. You will see what we mean before we get the words written; some scholars are so bright and quick. Here is a letter from Mr. George Bullock, of Manor Farm, South Stoke, Oxon, in which he say. that he was ill more or less for fifteen years. I had," he says, a bad, sour taste in the mouth, a rough and thickly coated tongue, poor appetite, and pain in the chest and between the shoulder blades after eating. I was also much troubled with nausea and windy spasms. I had a nasty hacking cough, and in a morning I spat up quantities of thick phlegm. My breathing was very hard and diffioult. On and off I consulted doctor after doctor, but their medicines did me no good, and so I continued to suffer year after year. My wife and other relatives thought I was in a consumption and must soon die of that fatal disease." Mr. Bullock, who is a large farmer, well known and highly respected throughout his district, is a well man now, but before we speak of that part of his case we will hear a word from Mr. Moses Copley, of Ledsham, Yorkshire, who will help to illustrate our lesson. For twenty years," says Mr. Copley—writing under date of February 9th, 1893—" I suffered from a hacking cough which every one said would take me to the grave, as nothing that I used to cure it did any good ?" In other respects Mr. Copley's ilness was just the same as Mr. Bullock' He could eat little, had pain and weight at the chest and sides, was tormented with heartburn, and was often sick—throwing up a sour fluid. As time went on he got weak and feeble—just at we should expect. How could it have been other. wise ? If a man can't eat and digest his food his sfrPn/t.h will all die out of him, of course. You can't keep on getting water out of your well if noni ever rnns in. A boy who hasn't yet learned his letters can see that. But here i" the question we must have an answer to: What makes a person. coughf "He can't help it," you would say. Beg pardon, blat while that is true it is not an answer. Wait a-moment now. Let us get back to our man under the water, our diver, you know. What makfs him pull the cord P You can answer that as easily as yon pull on your old shoes. The diver pulls his cord to let the men above him kuorv what, condition he is in down there and what he wants done. Precisely. Now, all the organs inside of yc-ur body-the stomach, bowels, lungs, liver Ac., ore like men under the water. When anything nils them they must let you know some- how, so a a to get help.. The cords they pull we call pains and symptoms of disease. They are not diseases though-remember that I We have r,}-e idea now all pat and plain. The cough which worrifid our two friends was the pulling of a cord t" lot i h,m, or their doctors, know they were ufjoring from indigestion and dyspepsia. It was thn not the lungs, that was ic trouble. The other symptoms showed Consumptives commonly have good appetites, and no paxn. J-IC yon see ? Well, both Mr Bullock and Mr. Copley finally wuk M..)).er Steel's Curative Syrup and soon got rid of the indigestion and dyspepsia and every. thing- that belonged to it, cough and all. The stomach was all right and sent up no more signals. Unlike the diver the stomach never wants to be pulled up. llere ends the lesson.

A letter hiving been ra. i from the Shrewsbury County Asylum authorities stating that Benjunin Searle's was not a hopeful case, it was agreed that the removal offi :er should get the patient removed to Carmarthen. THE BOARDING-OUT QUESTION. The Local Gove-< ment Board wrote asking wh,t had been done in the matter of boarding-out the children. The • Wk explained that sin«v> the advertisement for foster parents hid had no effect nothing Cre.-h had been done. Mr Salmon pr .po-ed that 2,000 circulars should be issued in tho Union, to indicate that the Board desired foster pirents.. I J. AI. Mr Miller seionded, aud suggested that the circu- lars shoul i be divided amongst the Guardians for dis- tribution in their r gpective d-st icts.

Mr Miller asked if it would not be better to pAilS Mr Salmon's motion cndit'onal on the committe3 approving of the It was ul ti mately decided that the Clerk should call the committee together again before any st-ps were taken. I'> THE COUNTY PRECEPT. The C airman announced the receipt of a preccpt on the Board for about .£1800. The Clerk remarked that the notice to provide so large a sum was very short. It was dated December 2nd, and the mouoy was demanded by December 23rd. In former years the precept was paid in two in- stallments -one in December and the other in February. Mr B. E M rjan proposed that the C!erk should be instructed to pay as much as be could. The Clerk stated that the reason the money was demanded in one lump Wi8 that the County Council had no reserve fund. The consequence was that they were living from hand to mouth. Mr Milor thought it unreasonable of the county to expect payment with so little notice. THE POOR REMEMBERED. The Master reported that the Mayoress entertained the inmates t > tea on the 9th inst., and also distri- buted amongst them a large qnantty of apples, oranges, sweets, and tobacco that Miss Barnett, Cheltenham, had sent a number of books that one guinea was received from Mr Scott, of Cardiff, and that Nirs Maries Thomas had entertained the woman and children at h, r residence. On the motion f Mr Miiler, seconded by Mr Hugh Hughes, the usual hearty voto of thanks was passed.
TOWN COUNCIL. A meeting of the Town Council was held at the Council Chamber on Tuesday, when there were pre- sent the Mayor (Councillor Robert Doughton) presid- ing, Aldermen Peter Jones, David Roberts, and Thos. Doughtou, "Councillors 0. M. Williams, R. J. Jones, Isaac Hopkins, Robert Peake, Thomas Griffiths, (ex- mayor), D. C. Roberts, W. Thomas, E. H. James, and Dr Harries, with Mr A. J. Hughes, town clerk, Mr C. Massey, tasistant clerk, Mr Rees Jones sur- veyor, and Mr H. L. Evans, accountant. NEXT SEASON'S MINSTRELS. Mr Harry Collins wrote accepting the terms of the Cwuneil for giving him the sole right to bring a minstrel troupe to the town during the ensuing year. SCHOOL BOARD COOKERY CLASSES. On the mot.on of Mr C. M. Williams. seconded by Mr R. J. Jones, permission was granted for the hold. ing of the School Board cookery classes in the Town Hall. NORTH ROAD OWNER'S APPLICATION. The owners of property on the north side of North road wrote asking if the Council would pave and channel their side of the road if they bore the cost. Alderman Doughton wished to know if the Council were going out of their way to do work for private in- dividuals before other necessary work was com- pleted. Mr Hopkins: I do not think it is right for us to take tradesmen's work out of their hands. Mr R. J. Jones proposed that the matter should be referred to the Public Works' Committee. Mr Williams hoped the committee would bear in mind the resolution to take in hand the courts and alleys without delay. Alderman Doughton That is just wild I meant. Mr Thomas: The work in North road need not of necessity interfere with other work the Corporation has iu hand. We might put extra men on the job, for the expense will be refunded. Mr Williams seconded the motion, which was carried. MR D. C. ROBERTS' PROPERTY. The Finance Committee reported that they had re- considered Mr D. C. Roberts' application for a renewal of the lease of the property in Sea View Place and Custom House street, and now recommend the rescind- ing of the resolution dated June 11th, 1895, and the grantinglofithe renewals on ot'ier terms which the com- mittee specified. Mr Hopkins was sorry to again have to interfere with the recommendation of th., committee. They were going to leave a lot If space in Swa View Place, and he thought they ought to ask Mr D. C. Roberts to fill Sea View Plaoe from top to bottom. He could then build nine houses and do away with two or three in South-road. He proposed that the matter be again referred to the committee. Mr R. J. Joneb: How is Mr Hopkins going to get nine houses in a space of 72 feet, assuming that measurement to be correct. Mr Hopkins: There are 172 feet there. Mr Peake thought the question one for the builder himself. The Council had only to grant or refuse the land. Mr Hopkins: You have stopped Mr Roberts now from building according to the plans. Alderman Jones said the committee wert into the matter very carefully, and the conclusion they oame to was to make that recommendation. He thought that to try to huddle two or three extra honses in that area would militiate against the value of the property than be an advantage. Mr Hopkins said that he saw there was a oonces- sioultolmr D. 6. Roberts mentioned for a pieoeof land, t, r whicn the Council were allowing him £ 14s7d. He wished to know what concession Mr Roberts made to the Council for the land he was taking in front of Sonth road. He (Mr Hopkins) was nt t against Mr Roberts, but againrt the committee because of their under. handed work ill doing business. The Mayor You should not say that. Alderman Jones (not hearing the mayor's remark) I mustabk you, Mr Mayor, if you are going to allow sti observation of that k)nd. If Mr Hopkins will bring any charge against the committee, 1 am perfectly willing. Mr Hopkins said he had just made a charge against the commi tee. Mr P. J. Jones Explain your position without mft.l tbese charges, which are quite uncalled for. Mr Hopkii.i stated that either the committee did not understand the qu°sA'?n or they made a, wilful mistake. He did not wish to say that Mr Roberts had a hand in the matter, it was the committee's tault. The Surveyor, explaining the state of things, said that the committee were very anxious to improve the line of frontage in that neighbourhood all around. As to the piece of land referred to, Mr R oberts was build. ing on the existing line,but with the view of improving the frontage from the corner of Mr Hopkins' work. shop to Sea View Place there were to be railings in front. This was the wish of the council, and not of Mr Roberts. Mr Hopkins said the railings would cover a part of the road. Mr Williams thought that, under the circumstances, it was preferable to refer the matter back to the committee. This was agreed to. THE VOLUNTKER CORPS. A recommendation of the Markets Committee that the council should allow the slaughter house for the use of the volunteer corps, at an annual rental of .620 was adopted. Before the council rose, other important matters were deferred, the Mayor and several other gentle- men being anxious to get away early.

LLEDROD. Y TRI CREADUR."—On Friday evening, the 18th inst,a lecture on the above subjeot'was delivered by Dr. Rees at the Board School, Lledrod. The room was crowded. The chairman was Mr Richard Davies, of Tynporth farm, who in a few well-chosen remarks opened the meeting, after which the children attend- iug the school, led by Miss Elizabeth Richards, the pupil teacher, gave a good rendering of "Kiss me mother," Ac. The Doctor has now lectured three times in the vicinity within the last two months, and of the three this was the most successful. By his brisk manner he kept the audience in good humour for nearly an hour. During an interval in the lecture Rhyfelgyrch Gwyr Harlech was finely sung by the < children, and loudly applauded. Rev H. M. Williams, vicar of Lledrod, proposed a hearty vote of thanks to Dr Rees, and the chairman, which was duly seconded by Mr Evan Evans, the chairman of the Board. A pleasing feature of the proceedings was the present- ation of certificates for regular attendance for the last three months. This function "ai ably carried out by Mr E. Evans. Considering the severity of the weather for the last fortnight, it was surprising to notice the large number of infants who bad pre. sented themselves at every school meeting. The meet- ing was fittingly closed by the children singiiig Hen Wlad fy Nhadau." Although the price of admission was only three-pence, a good sum was realized, which will be devotsd towards defraying the cost of tea, Ac., some time after the examination. I trust that the children will attend as well in future M they II. font tioce tot September,—LJ. E. £
