Carnarvonshire's Choice. MAJCU BREESE SELECTED COALITION CANDIDATE. MR. ELLIS -DAVIES DEFIANT. The political situation in Carnarovnshire is becoming more acute every day. The candi- dates are Maior Breese, Portmadoc (Coalition), and !vI:. Ellis Davies, Carnarvon (Liberal). Mr Ellis Davies has represented Eifion in Parlia- mtnt for many years; and one of the sensa- tions of the present campaign in his unexpected attack upon the Premier, and Mr. Lloyd George's scathing reply, stating that Mr Ellis Davies had been bitterly hostile to him throughout his administration. Though elected by a majority at !.he Carnarvon meeting on November 16-11, it. was asserted that Mr Davits selection was not authoritative inasmuch as the meeting was not thoroughly representative of the whole of the constituency and to revise what was described as the unconstitutional action of the old Arvon and Eivion Liberal Associations a number of prominent, members of the party caused meetings to -be held, at which Liberal electors were invited to vote upon candidates and appoint delegates to a ceiitral meeting, which took place on Saku day at Carnarvon. There was an attendance of about 200 men and women, of whom more than three-fourths were accredited delegates. Mr. T. W. Williams (Penygroes) was voted to the chair, and he was supported by Major Breese and Alderman W. J. Parrv, both of whom have for some time been spoken of as prospective Coalition candi- dates. Whereas a few districts had not sent any representatives at all, other places, such as Portmadoc, Penygroes, and Llanberis, had em- powered a large body of delegates to vote for Major Breese. The totSl absence of delegates for particular areas was explained in a note handed to the Chairman, to the effect that Mr. Ellis Davies had advised his friends not to take part in the meeting, and that he did not wish his name to go before the meeting, because the meeting had not been called by the officials of the two Liberal Associations. ("Oh!") I A preliminary discussion arose over the question whether the meeting should vote for a Coalition candidate or a Liberal candidate, and ultimately Mr. Wm. George moved thai they Ehould proceed to the election of a candi- date pledged to support the present Govern- ment. Mr. R. E. Jones (Llanberis) seconded the motion, which was supported by delegates from other districts, who stated definitely that they had been sent there to support the selection of a Coalition candidate. The motion was carried, there being only 1<2 dissentients. Mr. William J. Parry observed that the meeting had only one objeet, to uphold the hands of their great fellow-countryman, Mr. Lloyd George..(Cheers.) He was anxious to see Carnarvonshire united on that point, and *t; r he accordingly desired to withdraw his claims as a candidate in favour of Major Breese. „ Thereupon Captain Griffith (Pencaenewydd) proposed that Major Breese be the candidate, and this was seconded by Mr. T. W. Evans (Bettwsycoed). Mr. J. O. Roberts and Mr. Rd. Hughes, both of Cesarea, moved and seconded the name of Mr. R. T. Jones (secretary to the North Wales Quarrymen's Union), who, they said, was a Coalitionist, and had consented to his name being put forward in consequence of pressure brought to bear by the unions. Upon a division Major Breese obtained 133 votes and Mr R. T. Jones 5. The result was received with much cheering. In acknowledging the confidence which the meeting had reposed in him Major Breese said .that he had all his life been in touch with the true life of Wales, which had been in the mid- stream of Liberalism. He could then not. enter into details respecting policy. He, however, was a Liberal and always had been one, and he should never from his own free will deviate a singls iota from the principles which he held so dear. (Hear, hear.) He was pledged to support the Coalition "Government and our great Prim Minister—(cheers),—who was also the greatest Liberal and, he ventured to say, greatest liberator of our time. (Loud cheers.) Quring the campaign he would be prepared to .answer all questions to the best of his ability. He also would make not only a fair and a square light, but also a clean fight- (hear, hear)—and had no intention whatever t. deal with any red herrings that might be drawn artoss the path. MAJOR BREESE. Major Breese comes from a well known Liberal stock. His father was the late Mr. "Edward Breese. F.R.S.A., Portmadoc, who took a prominent part in bringing out the late Sir Love Jones-Parry, of Madryn, as Liberal can- didate for the countv in 1868. Major Breese is also a nebftew of the late Mr. David Williams, M P., of Deudraeth, and a cousin to Sir A. Os- mond Williams, Bart., formerly M.P. for Mer- icnethshire. His grandfather was the late Rev. John Bred e, a Congregational minister. Though upholding the political principles of all the above relatives, he is an out-and-out supports, of Mr. Lloyd George. He had done splendid work in the army and for the soldiers. He' is an antiquarian of repute, having spent large sums of money upon xploring and digging up Roman and Goedelic (Gwyddel) ruins at Djnas Emrys, Nant Gwynant, Yspytty, Penmorfa, and elsewhere ■ WELSH UNIVERSITY SEAT.

Bridegroom's Tragic Death Mr. Daniel Edward Jones, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Jones, Cwerthyr Woollen Mills, tlenllan, went to Aberdare to get married a loitiiigh* ago. The morning of the wedding he complained of feeling unwell, and after the ceremony he had to take to his bed. The illness proved fatal. On Friday evening, when he and his bride were to have returned from their honeymoon, his body was brought back to Hen- llan. He had furnished a house ready for his bride, and no expense had been saved in order to make his new home as comfortable as pos- sible. The interment took place at the St. Barna. bas Churchyard, Velindre.
LLAMILAR. At the Debating Society's meeting on Friday the subject was, "Which has shifted the most: the world towards the standard of the Church, or the Church towards the world?'" Mr. E. Williams, timber merchant (Port Talbot), opened for the world, and showed how the CTiurch found the world prostrate and unable to save it-self. The world had no lasting ideals. If the Church were again taken away the world would dritt and degenerate. With all its pro- gress ouring the past century not a single new moral truth has been discovered. Mr. M. T. Jones, schoolmlaster, contended that the Church in modern times was not the Church of our forefathers in almost any respect except in name. If it had not actually lowered its standard it had ignored it at almost every corner. Numbers were now in practice of more importance than purity popularity than justice; sentiment than discipline; and spiritu- ality was subordinated to finance. Certain dogmas were looked upon as of more import- a nee than truth. Artificial virtues were piously and reverently hung on the altar, hiding the poisonous sins cf the spirit. The selfishness displayed in certain quarters was unknown in the old and in the modern world. The follow- ing also spoke:—Messrs. D. Jones, Jenkin Jones. E. Prosseltl, D. Bvans, R. M. Jones, P.C. Davies, and E Lloyd. When the Chair- man (Mr J. J. Jones) counted the votes lie found both sides equal, and reluctantly decided in favour of the last speaker.

A Merionethshire officer tells a story which reveals the astonishing imperturbability which war imparts to the most kindhearted of men. I Four soldiers were sat in a dug-out playing nap. The man opposite the door had just called "nap" when a stray bullet struck him on the forehead, killing him instantaneously, and he fell forward on the table. The man sitting next to him, without any sign of per- turmbat-ion, took the five cards from the dead man's hand and calmly exclaimed "By jove, he'd have got it, too!" It is understood that the purchaser of the property in Ardwick, Manchester, which in- eluded the house where the Prime Minister was born, is Sir Graham Wood, formerly high sheriff of Lancashire. Sir Graham intends to pull down most of the property and to build in its. plac" a workshop for the training of dis- abled soldiers and others broken in the war, but to keep the Premier's birthplace intact and to 1 hmd it over to the Manchester Corporation.

To his own knowledge that ser- vice extended over thirty years and was given at great expense of labour and pocket. Mr Rees itood to-day higher in the estimation of all than ever before. (Applause.) In the past he and Mr. Rees had always been in opposite camps, and had fought hard, but with no malice then or now. Lord Herbert Vane Tempest heartily endorsed all that the Chairman had said. He had known Mr. Rees a great many years and served with him on public bodies and his recollections of their associations were very pleasant.

Williams, Davies Hughes, P. J. Bowen, W. H. Williams, J. Harlech Jone§, W. Henry Wil- liams; Wm. George (clerk), A vote of sympathy was passed with the re- latives of soldiers who have fallen. Mr. T. Burnell moved that a resolution of congratulation be sent to the Premier. Mr. Burnell added that he was now sorry that the Charter of Criccieth was not in force 6o that they could offer the Freedom to Mr. Lloyd George. He, however, felt that they ought to show their gratitude.—Mr. J. T. Jones, as the oldest Liberal in the town, seconded. Thev were under great obligations to Mr. Lloyd George, but he (Mr. Jones) was not ready to put his Liberal principles aside.—Mr. P. J. Bowen, as a well known Conservative, sup- ported the proposition. He was as glad of his connection with his political party as Mr Jones was) but it was everyone's duty to support Mr Lloyd George in the present situation. (Ap- plause.)—The proposition was unanimously agreed to.-On the proposition of Mr. D. M. Williams, seconded by Mr. P. J. Bowen, and supported by the Chairman and Mr. J. Har- lech Jones, it was agreed with enthusiasm to give a. civic welcome to Mr. Lloyd George at Criccieth during Christmas. The Council agreed- to meet on Friday night to make the arrange- ments. Dr. Lloyd Owen, medical officer, reported one death only occurred in the town from influenza. All precautions had been taken. Replying to the Council's letter of 12th No- vember, the Board of Tra wrote relative to the advance from the development fund in aid of the harbour that there is no reason why the Council should not proceed with a view to sub- mission to the department. The Board sug- gested, however, that they should consult the Local Government Board before incurring any expen.-The letter was referred to the Har- bour Committee. The Surveyor recommended that about 18 lamps only should be used to certain specified' places, and that stones should be limewashed. That was confirmed. It was was also decided to ask Sir H. J. Ellis Nanney, Bart., to present a suitable flagstaff to the Council to be fixed on Dinas Hill. The Charities Committee has appointed Mrs. Draper as clerk in place of Mr. Huw R. Gruf- fydd, who has resigned. Mr. W. H. Williams, chairman of the War Heroes Memorial Committee, reported that S134 15s. 6d. had been collected. The Committee recommended that an effort be now made to collect subscriptions from local householders and to distribute a circular.—Mr. J. T. Jones said before he could subscribe he wanted to be quite clear on what principle they were going to a-ct and who was to have control of the fund.—Mr. Williams said a circular issued ex- plained the object.—Mr. J. T. Jones said that was too open. He wanted something definite before going before the public.—Mr T. Burnell said it was difficult to decide on a scheme-with- out knowing what the total sum subscribed. The circular already issued was plain and suffi- cient for him. The Committee was anxious to secure scholarships for the children as well as a permanent memorial. They could safeguard the fund by appointing members of the Coun. cil.—Mr. Burnell explained that the Committee was preparing a roll of honour of 200 Criccieth men, of wliom 34 from Criccieth had made the supreme sacrifioe.—Mr. Wm. George said they must submit some definite scheme to the Charity Commissioners.—Mr. Burnell said the Government now took care that public chari- ties should not be abused, and moved that a part of the money should be allocated to secure scholarships, which Mr. P. J. Bowen seconded. —Mr. D. M. Williams felt it difficult- to decide on the scheme before the amount collected was known.—Mr. Burnell's proposition was agreed to. It was also decided that five members of the Council, representing the subscribers and two representing the School Managers, should be appointed as trustees. It was also agreed to invite Mr T. J. Goodwill to join Committee The members were asked tOo subscribe and C138 12s. was subscribed.—Mr. W. Howell Will ams gave notice to move at the next meeting that steps be taken to restore the old Town Charter.
CORRESPONDENCE. FARMERS AND FARM LABOURERS. Sir,-The action of Aberystwyth District Agricultural Committee in calling attention of the National Service Representative to men who have left farms to work on timber and in the mines must be resisted to the uttermost. T regard this action as sheer intimidation and tyranny. Labour is not conscript and the work- ers must retain, at all costs, the liberty of choosing the employment they desire. Especi- any is this so when it is known that the men have left the farms in the main because they cannot secure the provisions of an Act of Par- liament.

Remarkable letters were read at a special police court at Aberystwyth on Tuesday when Raymond Allen Watkin, who gave as his address Brockenhurst Camp, Hampshire, was charged with breaking into Paris House, Aberystwyth. on November 20th, and stealing wearing apparel value £38 7s. 3jd. breaking into Boots, Cash Chemists, shop in Terrace-road on November 25th and stealing articles value S31 Is.; also breaking into Messrs Dicks' shop in Great Dark- gate-street on November 27th and steahng a pair of woman's boots, value 2&s. 6d., and 4; lljd. in cash.

Elsie M. Hewitt, Manchester-street, King's Cross, London, was charged with having re- ceived the artiofab Watkin and Hewitt were young. The former appeared to be little more than a bov. Tl. magistrates were tlie* Mayor (t. f. Wynne. Esq.), Daniel Thomas, Esq., and John Watkins, Esq. Mr W. P. Owen prosecuted on behalf of the police. P.S. Davies gave evidence that about 9-40 p.m. on Wednesday, November 27th, he exam- ined the door of Messrs. Dicks' shop in Great Darkgate-street, and found it closed but. not locked. He went inside, and at the far end of the shop, in the women's fitting department, he found Watkin. He asked him "What are you dõ:ng here and the accused replied "I have only just come in." On the floor close to Watkin's feet witness found a cardboard box containing a pair of woman's boots, and he arrested the accused. On his person lie found a purse containing 4s. ll^d., a screw driver, portion of a pipe wrench, electrict flash lamp, a knife, a small square file, and two boxes of matches. The following day he charged the accused with having broken into the shop, and he replied "It is all correct." Later in the day he went, in company with the Chief Con- stable, to 47, Cambrian-street, and saw the woman Hewitt.. He asked her who she was, and in reply she said her name was Mrs Martin. The Chief Constable asked her permission to search the rooms occupied by her, and she con- sented. In the bedroom, hanging on pegs, he found numerous articles of clothing. He also found a large number of other articles, tools, and a "jemmy." He took possession of the articles and arrested the woman. On her per- son he found a box containing a large number of skeleton keys, diamond glass cutters, eighteen five poun4 notes), jand C4 10s. in Treasury notes. The same day he went to Mr. Ernest Owen's shop, and one of the keys fitted the lock of the door and opened it easily. HAD LATE DINNERS. Mary Jane Edwards said she kept a lodging house at 47, Cambrian-street, and on November 12th the accused, accompanied by Hewitt, came and asked for lodgings, giving as their names "Mr. and Mrs. Martin." Watkin said he was; a native of London and that he came to Aber- ystwyth for the benefit of his health. They occupied two rooms, a sitting and a bedroom, as man and wife, and brought a lot of luggage with them. They did not go out in the morn- ings, but went for walks in the afternoons, and Watkin used to go out by himself after dinner. Mr. W. P. Owen—What do you mean ? Did thev have late dinners? Witness—Yes; between six and seven o'clock. When did Watkin return as a rule? Between I ten an eleven. Once he returned at 11-30. Did he used to say where he was gdng?- Yes that he had a friend staying on the Terrace, and that h* wan#i! a walk to help digest his food. Did he ever bring anything back with him? —I never saw anything. Among other things the police-had taken possession of was a large number of letters, and Mr W. P. Owen read extracts from two o; them. The first, dated November 2nd, 1918. was from Hewitt to Watkin and read as fol- lows :— "My most darling liusband,-Well. I don't know; but I should have thought you would do better in small places than in London. You see, in London everything is so strongly built and well guarded. There are so many steel doors and iron gat, and policemen everywhere. All,, or nearly all, the worth while landings are done by gangs; and then they arq nearly always caught,, whilst in little villages there are few if any police. Shops and houses are little more than shanties, most of them. They even have no Yale locks on the doors most of the time, and there are always very few people about. The • swag might not be so valuable as in town; but probably it would be just as useful. Pro- fessionals, of course, are only interested in stuff that they can sell to the receivers but we want ours for use. Let me advise you; be selective, take only things that we can actually use, at present, at any rate. Don't pinch just for the sake of pinching; because we don't want to have an enormous dump of practically useless things to carry round with us, especially as we may just now be having to move about a good deal. Clothes of every description are always useful. Jewellery, yes, j that can be saved and later pawned or sold in some other town; food, even, is not unaccept- able at any time. All the hundred and one little things, such as fountain pens, knives, scissors, cutlery, etc., are good and useful and don't take much room in luggage." "GEE, YOU HAVE BEEN RAIDING!" "GEE, YOU HAVE BEEN RAIDIG" The second, dated October 28th, 1918, was also from Hewitt, and it read as follows:- My Sweet Love,—Oh, certainly, darling, send me anything and everything you can get hold of that will be of use, especially money I think it is better to send parcels by post: pack them very securely. If you've got too much for one parcels make it into two or three, or more. Thanks for the pictures, the more you send the more eager aunt gets to go. She would like to start at once, poor thing. C-e,e! you have been raiding the places! Of course, darling, I will get you all the keys I can. You want large ones, I expect, like room door keys. Dear love, do be care- ful about doing this sort of thing In day- light. Even if you don't see anyone about, you don't know who sees you. People stand at windows, or at doorways. You had better conduct this sort of operation at night, don't you think? These winter evenings it is quite dark about six, or even before. Oh! what a pity you broke your tooth! I am sorry. You will have now to get a new one. Can't you have it done while you are in the army, at their expense. A missing tooth marks a man so. You ought to wear gloves in conducting operations, because of finger prints. You know how people can be traced by them." Mr. W. P. Owen stated that among the letters were some from Watkin, in which he addressed Hewitt as "My idea] wife," and P.S. Davies stated that Hewitt was in receipt of a separation allowance in respect of her husband, G. H. Hewitt, who was in the Roval Air Force. J. Garrington, manager to Mr. Ernest Owen, testified that on Wednesday, November 20th. he locked the shop at 2-30 p.m., and at 9-15 a.m. the following morning, when he entered the shop. his attention was drawn to its state by his assistant (R. A. Davies). Caps and other articles of clothing were strewn on the floor: and, later, witness found that a number of articles were missing. Witness gave information to the police, and on November 28th Sergeant Davies came to the shop and showed a skeleton key which fitted the lock of one of the shop doors. With the police officer he went to the Police Station, where identified articles of cloth- ing belonging to Mr. Owen. Some of the articles had been taken from the cutter's room on the first floor, and the rest from the shop.. Richard Ambrose Davies, assistant in the employ of Mr. Ernest Owen, said that when he entered the shop on Tuesday morning he found the place upset, with caps and other articles of clothing on the floor. David Edgar Davies, manager of Boots, Cash Chemists' shop in Terrace-road, said he closed the shop between 7-30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Mon- day, November 25th. The following morning h found the door leading from the Arcade to the shop open, the bolt at the top of the door
