LLEYN AND EIFIONYDD BUILDING ) SOCIETY. 1 The annual general meetirg of the above society was held at the Office, 1, Salem-terrace, Pwllheli, on Wednesday, February 4th, 1885, the RHV. Hugh Hughes, Gellidara, in the chair. The following gentle- men were present: Mr R. J. Pritchard, Tynewpdd, ChwiIog.R.S.O.; Mr John Thomas, Iorwcrth Villa, Nevin Mr Robert Jones, J.P., Plastanrallt; Rev. Robert Hughes, UvvehlaAvylTyiu n, Llanaelhairn; Messrs R. W. Jones, Trefor D. Rowlands, Bodfean Thomas Roberts, Llithfaen William Thomas, Llan- gian'; Robert Williams. Murycyplau John Edmunds, Carnarvon; John Roberts, Gwniasa; O. P. Jones, Fourcresses Thomas Ellis, Carnguwch Griffith Williams, Pencaenewydd Richard Williams, Pentre- uchaf; Rev. John Hughes, Edeyrn; Messrs John Edwards, Pwllheli; John Owen, Bodfean; D. E. Davies, Pwllheli; O. Robyns Owen, solicitor, Pwll- heli, &c., &c. The accounts were lead by Mr D. E. Davies, the secretary, and the Chairman proposed the adoption of the report and accounts as read. He congratulated the members on the prosperous condition of the society. He believed that only a few institutions could present such a balance-sheet for last year. The year had been a very trying one all over the world on account of the depressed state of trade. There are thousands of acres of land uncultivated, and hundreds of vessels that pay nothing to the owners but this society has put £ 1,000 in the reserve fund, and is able to pay well to the owners. The receipts for last year amounted to over £25,000, the total amounts of the funds amount now to over £75,000, and the profits (after putting the £1,000 to the reserve fund according to the resolution passed at the last annual meeting) to JE3,704 lis 6d. He was pleased to see that less was withdrawn last year, in proportion to the business done, than the year before, although the dividend was reduced one half per cent., which proves that the members are willing to sacrifice a little in order to add to the reserve fund, and that they have every confi- dence in the society It pointed to the fact that they bought new offices in the best pr.rt of the town, which are, in every respect, worthy of the society, and that they were bought for a very reasonable price. The society has a house of its own now, which, in future, must be very advantageous to the business of the society. He referred in feeling terms to the loss the society had in the decease of the late chairman (Mr W. LI. Jones), and as he had been connected with the society from its commencement in 188(j, and being now elected chairman, he would do his best for it. He was glad to state that his co-directors were doing their best, and he had the greatest confidence in the secretary, who is untiring in his efforts to make the society successful. He moved the adoption of the report and accounts. The Rev. John Hughes, of Edeyrn, in seconding the motion, said that he was always glad to see the accounts of the society as they proved it to be in a healthy condition, and lie was proud to see that they as shareholders were becoming more in favour of creating a reserve fund. He bad always the greatest confidence in the society, and formally seconded the chairman's motion. Mr John Edmunds, Carnarvon, and Mr O. P. Jones, Fourcrosses, asked a few questions as to some items in the balance sheet which were explained, and the motion was carried unanimously. Mr R. J. Pritchard proposed, and Mr Robert Jones, J.P., seconded, that the interest for last year be at the rate of five and a half per cent. for all paid up shares that were in the society for a full year, and that dividend, at the rate of three and a half per cent., be paid on shares that were taken after the 1st of January, and at the rate of three per cent. for shares withdrawn during the year-the same rule to apply this year to shares taken up during the year as well as withdrawals. The motion was carried as well as another motion to carry S300 to the reserve fund, which now stands at £ 1300 without taking into con- sideration the large amount of prospective premium. &c., and the balance to the next year's account. On the motion of Mr Robert Williams, the Rev. Hugh Hughes, Messrs Thomas Ellis and O. P. Jones were elected directors of the society. A vote of thanks to the directors, auditors, solicitors, bankers, &c., was passed on the motion of Mr David Rowlands, seconded by Mr Edmunds. In acknowledging the vote of thanks to the bankers, Mr Robert Jones said that he had always had the most earnest desire for the welfare of the society. The success of the society was as near to his heart as that of his own firm, and he was very glad to see it so pros- perous. His firm was always ready to do their best for the society at all their branches. Mr Robyns Owen (of the firm of Picton, Jones and Roberts, solicitors), said that the legal business of the society was transacted at their office from the com- mencement, and that they always endeavoured to do their best fer the shareholders. He was glad to say that the secretary was always at his post and alive to the interest of the society, which was of great impor- tance to them in the discharge of their duties. The auditor, Mr John Edwards, said that he was very pleased to say that the accounts were always very satisfac- torily kept. That the documents and vouchers were pro- perly and orderly kept. The work of the secretary and his assistants is everything that could be desired. He was glad to find that the members appeared to be alive to the importance of creating a strong reserve fund. He begged to propose a vote of thanks to the surveyors their office was very important. With good surveyors the society must succeed, and without them it could not get on. The motion was seconded by Mr Jones, Bank. He believed that they would exercise the greatest care in selecting securities. He concurred with Mr Edwards that their office was very important. Mr John Edwards proposed a vote of thanks to the secretary. As he has access to the books, &c., of the society, he had every advantage to form an opinion of Mr Davies work; his duties are very heavy, and he never shrinks from them. The motion was seconded by the Rev. John Hughes, and supported by Mr Robyns Owen, solicitor, both of whom spoke of his constant devotion to his duties. Mr Davies, in reply, said that the duties of a secretaiy to a building society are neither light nor pleasant, and that he had from the commencement endeavoured to do what is right, be the consequences what they may. From his appointment nineteen years ago his ambition had always been to perform his duties conscientiously and make the society a thorough success. He was glad to see them adopting the course they had done at the meeting in order to strengthen the reserve fund, which is the key- stone of a society. He referred also to the Bills of Mr Broadhurst and Lord Randolph Churchill, which, when passed, would go very far in strengthening building societies. Messrs Edwards and Rowlands were elected scrutin eers of the society. After some remarks from several gentlemen, it was announced that the dividends would be paid as usual on the third Wednesday in February, at the office of the society, as well as at the head office and branch offices of the bankers, and that for those who live at a distance cheques would be sent. A vote of thanks to the chairman closed the meeting
IMPORTANT BUILDING SOCIETY DISPUTE. His Honour Judge Horatio Lloyd on Saturday held a special sitting at Bangor for the further hearing of a test action originally commenced in the Carnarvon Court in September, in which Messrs Robert Roberts, Dolbadarn Hotel; John Davies, Blue Peris; William Williams, Ceunant- street; and Griffith Roberts, Padarn Villa Hotel, Llanberis, were sued as trustees of the Llanberis Benefit Building Society, by Pierce Griffith, quarryman, Turner-street, Llanberis, for the de- livery of the deeds relating to a house of which the plaintiff had purchased the equity of redemp- tion. Mr John Roberts was for the plaintiff, and Mr Tirrell, of the Chancery bar (instructed by Messrs Louis and Co.), for the defendants. The society was established to exist for twenty years, an original subscriber being David Wilson Ro- berts, to whom an advance in September, 1866, was made of £560. A few months later, be trans- ferred a portion of the property upon which the advance was made to a person named Phillips, now deceased, the trustees being joined in the deed, and the consideration being stated at JS105 and interest. This was subsequently transferred to the present plaintiff, who continued the pay- ment of 10s lOd monthly until the term for which the society was to run had expired. Upon applying for his deeds the trustees refused to give them up, there being still a portion of the J6105 and interest remaining unpaid; whilst it was further set up, the liabilities of the society were not fully discharged. The validity of the deed between Phillips and Wilson Roberts was im- pugned by Mr Roberts, who contended that it did not convey what the parties intended to do, and that it was ambiguous and indefinite. Mr Tirrell submitted that the plaintiff, who was not a member of the society, no shares having been transferred to him, was estopped by the deed, ¡ which clearly defined the nature of the transac- tion between Wilson Roberts and Phillips. After considerable argument on the part of Mr Ro- berts, his Honour said that he could not get out of the effect of the deed, which made it liable upon the plaintiff, by whom it bad been put in, to pay the £10.5 and interest. He should, there- fore, direct a non-suit with coats.—Mr Tirrell said that he was entitled to ask for judgment for the defendants for JK76 6s 2d, balance of principal and interest due upon the £ 105.—His Honour directed an account to be taken of the amount due on the basis of the deed of assignment under which the plaintiff became possessed of the pro- perty, and refused to allow Mr Roberts to ques- tion Mr Evans, the secretary of the society, as to whether Mr Wilson Roberts was continuing regu- lar payment of the amount due to the society on the balance due by him in respect of that portion of the property which still remained in his pos- session.
PRESENTATION TO MR. C. H. DARBI- SHIRE. An interesting event took place at the Craig- llwyd Quarries (owned by the Messrs Darbishire) on Thursday, the 5th inst., on the occasion of the fortnightly pay, when the men, in order to show their appreciation of the great kindness and un- wearied interest in their welfare displayed by the managing partner, Mr C. H. Darbishire, pre- sented him with the following address TO C. H. DARDISHIRE, ESQ., J.P. Dear Sir,—We, the undersigned workmen employed at the Graiglwyd Quarries, humbly beg to present you with the following address, setting forth our feelings towards you and your family. We are con- vinced that the connection which exists between your- self and your employes is one especially dear to you. The fact that you have always taken a lively interest in our welfare amply proves this. We have ever found you a warm supporter of every movement tend- ing to better our condition, and in all such movements we have been supported by your ready co-operation. You have always manifested your kindly interest in your workmen in all their various circumstances; those who, through age or infirmity, are unable to follow their vocation, have been your special object of sympathy. Your kindness in presiding at concerts for charitable purposes we have not forgotten, nor your liberal contributions in all cases of need amongst us. The handsome sums so generously presented last Christmas was one out of the many acts of kindness we have received at your hands. To Mrs Darbishire, whose kindness and assistance on many trying occasiens we have experienced, we also feel the same sense of gratitude. In this humble way we wish to express to you our heartfelt gratitude for your kindness, our admiration of the liberal spirit you have always displayed, and the pride we feel in the connection which exists be- tween us. Wishing you and your family long life and useful- ness, and trusting that the future of your quarries may be a successful one, and that the good feeling may ever exist between you and those whom you em- ploy, we are, sir, most obediently, Yorn WORKMEN. Graiglwyd Quarries, Feb. 5, 1885. Mr Darbishire, in replying, said he found it difficult to find words in which to express his gratitude for the beautiful address they had been so kind as to give him. Both his wife and him- self felt they had not done anything worthy of so handsome an expression of feeling. He recog- nised in the address the sympathy and the es- teem which they felt for one another. The spirit which prompted the address would find an echo in his heart, and would bind them closer together (hear, hear). When he came to Penmaenmawr he found that they looked upon the quarries as their recognised means of livelihood, and he had determined to the utmost of his power to make it a successful one. He considered that they formed one community, and that their interests were identical. It was gratifying to learn from this address that what he had done had met with their approval. One thing more they required to make the quarries more successful, and that was a waterway-and that one thing they were deter- mined to have—(loud cheers)—and when they ob- tained it the old quarries would be a source of greater benefits to the parish than even they had been in the past (loud cheers). Cheers having been given for Mr and Mrs Darbishire and Sir W. A. Darbishire, the well- known president of the Liberal organisation of Carnarvonshire, the ordinary business of the pay went on. The address, which was an exquisite work of art, was designed and executed by Mr Evan Wil- liams, Brunswick-chambers, Carnarvon.
ASSESSMENT COMMITTEE OF THE BANGOR AND BEAUMARIS UNION. RESIGNATION OF THE VICE-CHAIRMAN.— A meeting of the Assessment Committee was held at the Board-room, Bangor, on Thursday, the 5th instant, for tke purpose of hearing objections to the new valuation list based on the income tax returns. The members present included Colonel the Hon. W. E. Sackville-West (vice-chairman) in the chair, Messrs Thomas Lewis, J.P., Thomas Jones, Hugh Thomas, Thomas Edwards, Robert Roberts, Robert Hughes, John Evan Roberts, and Wm. Pritchard. Upwards of 100 notices of objection had been given, and in addition thereto a numerously-attended deputation from the Anglesey parishes of the union presented them- selves to lay before the committee the views of the ratepayers on the subject in accordance with it resolution passed at a public meeting recently held at Menai Bridge. The deputation, having previously signified their intention of attending, received in reply an intimation from the clerk to the committee to the effect that they would not be heard. The deputation, however, attended as stated, and a discussion ensued upon the motion that they be admitted. The Chairman assented to the proposition that they be admitted, but that one speaker only should be heard. The area and number of parishes represented, however, being large, several members of the deputation, on the question being raised, declared that they pre- ferred to leave rather than be tied down to one speaker, who could not adequately represent the views of the whole of the ratepayers, and they accordingly retired to consider the matter. -In their absence, the committee resolved that they would hear three speakers in addition to Mr Thornton Jones, on behalf of the deputation; but as the chairman strongly dissented from this, and expressed his intention of vacating the chair if it were persisted in, Mr Thomas Lewis left the committee and addressed the assembly in the entrance hall, explaining that they were all anxious that justice should be done to the rate- payers, and finally he asked whether they could not agree upon one speaker, and thus end the difficulty. A unanimous No settled the ques- tion, and Mr Hugh Thomas having stated the decision of the committee, Mr Lewis' return to the room was followed by the immediate resigna- tion of the vice-chairmanship by Colonel West, who, thereupon, left the building. Considerable excitement prevailed, but ultimately the deputa- tion was called in, and Mr Robert Owen, Lled- wigan; Mr Roberts, Cefn Du; and Mr Hughes, Cefn Mawr, with the secretary, were chosen as speakers.—Mr Thornton Jones explained, shortly, the circumstances under which they attended, stating that it was not until the valuation lists were actually out that the ratepayers knew the extent of the increased burden which the adop- tion of the new basis imposed upon them, and that this was the first available occasion for mak- ing their views known to those who had to deal with the matter. He contended that the adop- tion of the income tax as the basis was alto- gether irregular and ultra vires, because the Act in one case carefully avoided the word rent" as the criterion of annual value, and in the other expressly inserted it. Rents being capri- ciously fixed were not reliable as evidence of value, while injustice was done in the case of owners occupying their own land, whose rateable value would now, as under the old system, have to be estimated, whereas the tenant paid on his full rent. He concluded by stating that appeal was no remedy if the evil was so widespread, and that it was so the general dissatisfaction that pre- vailed amply showed. The only satisfactory couse would be to have the resolution rescinded, and anew valuation prepared.—Mr Robert Owen, who spoke in Welsh, entered a vigorous protest against the injustice done to the ratepayers by the newly-compiled valuation lists. He said that large mansions and home farms were not rated at a quarter the extent they should be. The smaller farmers suffered most, and there was no fairness or equality in the iiev assessment- —Mr Hughes supported the last speaker, con- tending that the evil, if not remedied, would lead inevitably to the oppression of small farmers. and by compelling a readjustment of rents might lead to a land question in Wales of nO small difficulty. He mentioned as an illustra- tion the case of the marsh farms, one of 20 and the other of 40 acres, both rented aud therefore taxed alike, the 40 acre farm being the better of the two.—Mr Roberts added several instances of a similar nature, and said that the larger farms were let at 20 per cent. less than the smaller tenements, and that consequently all tended to crush the already over-burdened agriculturists- —Mr Thomas Lewis, who had been voted to chair on the departure of Colonel West, said that nothing could be done that day, but that what had been said should have every consideration- He agreed that the question was a most important one, and ultimately it was arranged that the whole matter should stand over until the next meeting, Mr Hugh Thomas, meanwhile, giving notice of motion to rescind the resolution autho- rising the change, and the consideration of thO whole of the individual objections being ad, journed sine die. MEETIJFG AT BETHESDA. A crowded meeting of the ratepayers of the parish of Llanllechid was held at the Cafe. Be' thesda, on Friday night, to protest against the new assessment made by the above union on the income tax basis. Mr R. Jones (Cloth Hall) waS elected chairman Mr Kossuth Davies, secretary; and Mr R. Owen (stationer), treasurer. Several speakers condemned the new basis as being un- fair and uncalled for. A committee of twc!r'e gentlemen was elected for the purpose of looking into the matter, and to give effect to the views of meeting.—Mr Brymer remarked that it was all anomaly that a man from Carnarvon should hold the post of clerk to the local board of commit" sioners, as there were plenty of men capable of doing the work atBethesda. These remarks were very warmly cheered. The meeting was then ad- journed.
FOOTBALL. RUTHIN GRAMMAR SCHOOL V. CHESTJSP GRAMMAR SCHOOL.—This match was played 011 the Grammar School ground, Ruthin, on Satur- day, before a large number of spectators. The game throughout was closely contested, and re- sulted in a victory for the home team by three goals to two.

A meeting of this association was held at the Erskine Arms Hotel, Conway, on Monday, at which nearly all the clubs in the association were represented. Mr T. B. Farrington, C.F.C., pre- sided. A protest from the Llanrwst F.C. against llhyl F.C. in the semi-final tie for the Challenge Cup was considered and upheld, and the clubs were ordered to play again on or before the 28th instant.
