Home News. CARDIGAN A large circle of friends will learn with deep regret of the death on Sunday night, at his residence, of Dr. Evans, Newquay. Dr. Evans had suffered for a considerable time from a serious internal malady, which had gradually gained upon him, and which in September last culminated in great physical prostration. Sir John Williams, the eminent physician, advised him to undergo an operation in London. The operation, whilst demonstrating the great skill of the eminent surgeon, proved successful only so far as to extend the patient's life some six months, and on Sunday night Dr Evans passed quietly and peacefully away. CARMARTHEN. Miss Bonnell (24), of Penderyn Farm, Llanelly, on Tuesday communicated to neighbours a state- ment that whilst alone at the farmstead she was assaulted by a man who wore a mask. She had apparently been roughly treated. Since 1863 the Carmarthen Bay lifeboats, housed at Ferry side, have gone to the rescue of fourteen wrecked and stranded vessels, and saved 105 lives. The last rescue was effected in 1901, when fifteen lives were saved from the ship Australia, of Christiania, which was wrecked on the Cefn Sidan Sands. CARNARVON. In memory of the late Colonel Sackville West a brass tablet is to be erected in Bangor Cathedral. Mr. C. H. Darbishire, of Penmaenmawr, is offering a prize of £10 in the sett-dressing com- t, petition at the forthcoming National Eisteddfod at Carnarvon. The death took place on Monday, at his resi- dence, Eithinog, Colwyn Bay, of Mr. John Lewis, who had reached the advanced age of 91. He was one of the senior magistrates of Denbighshire, being put on the commission of the peace in 1887. He was a prominent deacon in the Calvinistic Methodist denomination, and his benefactions to religious objects were considerable. The death took place on Tuesday of Mr. George Eardley, Bangor, at the age of sixty years. An ardent Radical, he attended the declaration of the poll at Carnarvon at the last election, and after- wards with others drove home about midnight. He is supposed then to have contracted a cold, which resulted in his death. Kind, courteous, and cheerful to all, he will be widely missed. DENBIGH. On Tuesday, at Wrexham County Hall, an old man named John Williams, aged 80, was charged with attempting to commit suicide. He said his wife had accused him of stealing her money, and added, I wish I was out of the way." Miss Phyllis Bryan, the little daughter of Mr. B. Bryan, of Denbigh, is to be this year's May Queen at Denbigh. The ceremony of crowning her will take place in the Castle grounds, on Saturday, May 5, and the retiring Queen, Miss Eva Robinson, of Tyneysog Hall, will take part in the procession. At the Denbigh County Court, on Tuesday, before Sir Horatio Lloyd, J. S. Fletcher, novelist, was sued on a default summons for £ 23 14s., the value of a bicycle, the hire of bicycles, tobacco, and other things. It was stated that the defendant was until recently living in a cottage at Nantglyn, and was in receipt of a substantial income. In addition to his earnings as a novelist he also wrote regularly for the Times and the Daily Mail. His Honour gave judgment for £10 to be paid forthwith, and the remainder in two monthly instalments. FLINT. The Duke of Westminster has received from Lord Milner the following telegram in reply to the resolution adopted by the North Wales Unionist Conference last week regarding the criticisms which have been passed on his lordship's policy in South Africa :-Desire to thank you and Unionists of North Wales most cordially for the resolution contained in your telegram of yesterday.—Milner. GLAMORGAN. At a meeting of the Cardiff Finance Committee on Monday it was reported that a cheque for £ 2,150 had been received from Mr. Carnegie towards the cost of building the Canton and Cathays Branch Libraries. The Cardiff Guardians on Saturday unanimously resolved that in view of the impending resignation of Mr. Bircham, Local Government Board Inspec- tor for Wales and Monmouthshire, the Board be respectfully asked to appoint to the vacancy a gentleman possessing a knowledge ot the Welsh language. A pleasing sequel to the recent visit of Sir Alfred Jones to Swansea is to be found in the fact that arrangements have been made for a number ot Messrs. Elder, Dempster, and Co.'s vessels to load at Swansea during the next few months with patent fuel for the West Coast of Africa. The Andansi, the first of these, is due at Swansea early next week. The Conservatives of Swansea have presented Colonel J. R. Wright, who unsuccessfully contested the seat for Swansea Town at the General Election against Sir George Newnes, Bart., M.P., with an illuminated address. In returning thanks for the presentation, which was made by Sir John Llewelyn, the Colonel said he was proud of the magnificent testimonial that had been presented to him. MONMOUTH. At the monthly meeting of the Abergavenny Town Council on Monday evening it was unani- mously resolved to offer the freedom of the borough to the Lord Mayor of London. At present the only freemen of the borough are the Marquess of Abergavenny and Earl Roberts. A joint meeting of the South Wales and Mon- mouthshire Iron and Steel Workers', Mechanics', and Others' Sliding Scale Association was held at the Angel Hotel, Abergavenny, on Tuesday, to receive the joint award of the auditors for the three months ending February 28th, the result being that wages will be advanced 2 per cent. from the 1st April. PEMBROKE. At a meeting of the Milford Haven Sea Fisheries Committee, held at Haverfordwest on Saturday, a letter was read from the Trinity Brethren stating that a lighthouse and fog-signal station would be placed on St. Govan's Head at an early date. No mention was made of erecting a lighthouse and fog-signal station at Caldy Island, and the clerk was instructed to call attention to the omission. RADNOR. The sum of J^xo 10s. 6d. has been found in the possession of an inmate named James Handley, at Builth Wells Workhouse. Handley, who is bed- ridden, has been in the house some years.
Football Chat. rBy PEL DROED.1 London Welsh Still Going Strong.-Perhaps Lennox are not to be reckoned as a first-class Rugby combination, but they are not to be despised nevertheless, and often play a fairly good game. Consequently their defeat at the hands of London Welsh, by the handsome margin of 30 points to nil, must certainly be considered another feather in the already well feathered caps of the London Cymry. There was only one team in it. Throughout the game the L.W.'s held the upper hand, and would not be denied, fairly non-plussing their opponents." Cardiff v. Swansea.—In South Wales the great tussle of Saturday was the meeting of the above clubs. The Cardiffians had only been beaten once this season, and that by New Zea- land, consequently there was a keen desire at Swansea to see the All Whites defeat the Blue and Blacks. It was a well-contested game throughout, in which the Cardiffians showed all- round superiority, and won by a try to nil. R. David, the Cardiff half-back, was generally con- sidered superior to R. Owen, the Swansea Inter- national half, and, if he keeps up form, there is no doubt that David will get his cap next year. J. L. Williams, one of the Cardiff three-quarters, was also very conspicuous, and is another player certain of a place in next season's Welsh Inter- national side. Gordon, the veteran Swansea player, showed surprisingly good form, and is playing as well as ever. There were fully 15,000 spectators, and the" gate" was one of the best of the season. Cardiff has beaten both Swansea and Newport four times each this season, an unique event in the history of the club. Blackljeatb Trounced.—Newport gave BJack- heath a severe trouncing, and were ea$y victors. Blackheath were very surprised at the excellent form of the Usksiders who gave of their very best.
