CAERNARVON WINTER FAIR. The above fair was held to-day (Friday), there being a. large number of farmers and business men present. The supply of cattle compared favourably with that of previous years. On the whole, it was considered a very poor fair—in fact, one of the worst winter • fairs that has been held for years. This is attributed to the bad season and the large quantity of Canadian meat brought into this country. The quality of the caJttle was equal; to'that of previous years. The prices were as follow —Milch cows, £ 11 to £ 15; two-year- olds, £ 9" to £ 13; yearlings, £ 7 to £ 10; calves, £3 to £5 ;ba.rrens,£85s to £9 10s. The quantity of butter in the market was smaller than usual. There was no supply of cheese.
THE LORDS AND THE EDUCATION BILL. The House of Lords began yesterday's work by reading the Education 'Bill a third time, and on the motion to pass the IBill several amendments were adopted.—Lord Crewe re- viewed the position, pointing out how materi- ally the House had altered the Bill from the ■form in which it left the Commons.—The Ihike of Norfolk expressed unabated hostility to the measure, which, he said, Roman Catholics could not accept.—The Marquis of iLansdo'Saie said he oould not support the Duke of Norfolk, and, in reply to Lord Crewe, he said he believed the House had followed the mandate of the ooun- try. The Bill was founded on popular con- trol, and not one farthing of the public money would be spent in denominational teaching. The Bill passed by 105 votes to 28.
AGRICULTURAL CO-OPERATION. A conference of some of the leading agricul- turist-s of the county was iheld atí [Llangefni yesttfday to meet Mr J. Nugent Harris, secre-. tary of the Agricultural Organisation Society, who explained the objects for which about 150 societies had already been formed in different parts of the county. Two flourishing branches are | already working in the island—one at Dulas, Amlwch, and the second at Llanfair P.G.. A third is being formed in the western pafft óf the county, and now an effort is being made to establish two others, which will bring the whole county within reach of the operations of the society. Other speakers included Mr Thomas Pri- chard, agent to Sir G. Meyrick; Mr T. Nicholls Jones, a.gent to Lord Boston; Messrs R. L. Edwards, W. tOwen, J. Evans, Bodowyn, and Lewis Morris, Cefnhir. A resolution pledging the meeting to support the society was unanimously passed. 00-
A SCHOONER iN DISTRESS LIFEBOAT RESCUE AT HOLYHEAD. On Wednesday a fieroe gale from the nortn-vesu blew off Holyhead, at times almost reaching hurricane. force. The wind drove before it heavy sheets of rain and sloet, and weather conditions generally were most unpleasant. Shortly after dark sig- nals of distress were observed by the coast- guards, amd it was seen that the schooner Millom Castle," of Chester, which had sought shelter in the roads during tlie morn- ing, was dragging her anchors. Rockets were fired to summon the crew of tihe steam lifeboat "Duke of Northumberland," and in a very short time the boat was ploughing its way towards the distressed vessel. The crew of three were brought ashore and tiaken to the j. Sailors' Home. j The "Millom Castle" was bound' from New I Ross tto Connah's Qiiay with timber. On Thursday the sale had abated, and the vessel's aaichors were still holding. At the time of writing it wa.s thought probable that, the crew would be taken on board yesterday (Thursday).

A RECKLESS DRIVER THE RECENT FATAL ACCIDENT AT PEN/MAjENMAWlfc At the Conway Polce Court, on Monday, a horse trainer named William Jones, of Lark P,ill, Penmaesremawr, was summoned for driv- ing a horse and gig at Penmaenmawr on Octo- ber 13th to the danger of the publ:ic.-Supt. Rees stated that on the date in question the defendant drove a horse and gig from Pen- maenmawr to Llanfairfecha-n. He took with him another man. When they arrived at the latter place the other man was helplessly drunk. On the" way hack the defendant drove reck- lessly, at full gallop. He halted at a puiblic- house, and then oame on through the town at a wild speed. His gig collided with a trap standing on its own side in front of a grocer's swop; both the men in the gig were thrown out. The companion of the defendant had his skull fractured, and! died shortly afterwards. The event had been inquired into by the Cor- oner's jury,-T,he accused said that the old horse he had was incapable of doing more t'lisan a. canter. As he came into the town a heavy slltower of hail fell, and he hurried the horse up to -et out of it. As he passed the grocer's shop he notioed some people shelter- ing at the opposite side of the way, and did not see the trap in front of -the shop, and so caught the wheel of it. He was fined B3 and costs, including the costs of four witnesses..i
BETTWSYCOED URBAN COUNCIL THE WATER SUPPLY QUESTION. FRIDAY.—Mr Robert Parry, J.P., presid- ing. A GOVERNOR.—Mr Henry Roberts was re-elected governor of the North Wales Col- lege. BYE-LAWS FOR HACKNEY CAR- RIAGES.—A committee which had considered the proposal to adopt new bye-laiws for hack- ney carriages, based upon the model of tlhe Local Government Board, recommended that the model regulations be approved, with some few alterations, and tha't a reduced scale of charges ibe enforced, as compared with those whidb had been hit-her-to demanded by the li- censed hackney carriage proprietors. In op- position to this the, hoter and carriage pro- prietons, eighteen in number, sent in a peti- tion, in which they stated that the proposed new bye-laws, while being detrimental to their interests, would be of no material benefit to the village. In comparing the present fares with those of otiher tourist resorts, they asked that it should be remembered that their season was much shorter than that of places like Llan- dudno and Colwyn Bay.—Mr Thomas Griffith, who movedl that the bye-laws be confirmed, said that as things were, the carriage pro- prietors practically failed to get their full fares throughout the season, except- during one month. It was much better for them to have fares wlhich oould be maintained throughout the season. As to the point that there was a smaller resident population, that was set off by the fact that there were fewer vehicles tftian at the towns which had been named.— Mr R. Rowilinson seconded the motion.—Mr T. W. B. Corns said the car drivers had asked as much as 7s 6d for taking persons up to the SwaJlow Falls and back.—The Chairman: When we came to compare the tables our charges in almost every case were higher than those in other parts of North Wales.—Mr John Hughes: And the drivers never get these prices, except in August.—The resolution was carried unanimously.—The new scale of charges for hackney carriages makes the fare for one mile by a carriage drawn by one horse a shil- ling instead of Is 3d, and a reduction of 3d per mile is made for carriages drawn by two horses from Is 9d to Is 6d. SEWERAGE QUESTION.—The Council re- cently applied to the Local Government Board for power to borrow a sum of money for the purpose of extending the main sewer up to Pentredu, which was added to the urban dis- trict half a- dozen years ago. The Board de- clined to concede the power asked for unless the Council would provide works for the treat- ment of the effluent from tihe sewers of the district which is at present turned! in its crude state into the river. This would entail such expenditure that it was considered inexpedient to undertake it, for some years at any rate, all the available borrowing powers being required in connection with tibe proposed new water- works. Mr William Jones, M.P., was asked I to use his influence with the Board with a view to inducing them to forego their condi- tion on the understand in ? that' tfoie Council would take up the question of sewage treat- ment at the earliest practicable date. The Board, however, adhered 'to its decision, and the engineer was instructed to prepare a scheme few dealing properly witlb the whole effluent of the sewers of the village. THE 'WATER SUPPLY.—It was resolved that the scheme for obtaining a water supply from tihe laJk-el kinown as F^ynnom Llugwy should be made as complete as possible, BO tha't it may be proceeded witfh, immediately after the next election. It will entail a rather heavy expenditure, and, therefore, the Council desire the support of the ratepayers before em- barking upon it.
I NATIONAL COUNCIL FOR WALES CARNARVON TOWS COUNCIL AND THE ACTION OF THE, LORDS. CRY OF NO POLITICS. At the meeting of the Carnarvon Town Goun- cil, on Tuesday evening, II Councillor W. G. Thomas moved the follow- ing resolution "That this Council deeplly re- grets the rejection by the House of Lords of (the clause in the Education Bill which provided for the election of a National Council for the control of public education in Wales, and trusts that the Welsh representatives in Parliament will urge the Government to restore the clause as essential to the organisation of education in Wales." He said that the resolution was not in any way a political one. It was based upon the rejection by the House of Lords of a proposal to establish a National Council for the control of public education, in Wales. That proposal was put in the Bill as the result of a conference that- was held at Llandrindod, at which a, large number of educational and other authorities in Wales were represented. It could not be said that the Council were in- terfering with a maitter that did not concern them, for they appointed the Mayor to repre- sent them at the Conference at Llandrindod, a ere it was suggested the National Council should be brought into existence. On reading the report of that conference he was glad to find that a large number of gentlemen belong- ing to all parties and sects attended. There were Conservatives, Liberals, Churchmen, and Nonconformists present, and Mr 'P. P. Pen. nant, a well-known Conservative, was in the chair. On the motion of Mr J. Issard Davies, a Conservative, thle- following resolution wai passed "That this conference expresses its approval of the proposed establishment! of a Welsh National Coimcil of Education," and there was added to it, "and urges the Govern- ment to establish such a Council." The seconder was another Conservative, Mr Morgan, of Cardiff. This, he maintained, did away with the suggestion of some members that his proposal that evening was a political one. It was nothing of the kind. He felt very strong- ly that there ought to be an Educational Coun- cil for Wales. They had already a similar council in the Central Board, which governed intermediate education, and which had worked very well, but the proposal now was that the National Council shouild govern hoth the ele- 'n^sntary and E^irm'f-diiate ieflucation. The sacrifices that Welshmen had made in the cause of educaition gave them a clafm to special at- tention in the maitter. They had made a sacri- fice by the way they had collected subscrip- tions for the purpose of erecting iliree col- leges, and thus form the Welsh University. All this 'had been done not by large subscrip- tions, but largely by small contributions from workmen, a fact which showed that Welsh- men were thoroughly in earnest' on the question of education. Under the circumstances they were entitled to local control of public educa- tion in Wales. On reading the report of the discussion in the House of Lords he noticed that one Lord1 taunted the Government that the clause was not required, because public bodies had not applied for it, forgetting that nearly all were represented at Llandrindod. There were conditions in 'the Principality that called for a National Council. It might be said that it was no use to pass an albstract resolution of the tkind, but he ventured tio say that the lOouneil w&a eipledtetcll 5to avoids tIhe public opinion of that part of Wales strongly on the matter- By adopting the resolution they would only do what was generally felt it was their duty to do. The Town Council not only ap- pointed' a representative to go -to Llandrindod, but they were recognised as an educational authority so far as they appointed managers for all tihe sdhools in the town, and thus they had a right to express an opinion upon ques- tioms affecting education. He regretted that the clause had been thrown out iby the Lords without any attempt whatever to retain it, even with some amendment—it seemed to have been thrown out holus bolus without leaving Wales a leg to stand upon. When they found, as -at the conference at Llandrindod, Liberals and Conservatives, so earnest in their desire to have for Wales what was considered as simply necessary in order to complete their system of education, the least the Lords could have done would have been to trealt the claiuse with something like ordinary courtesy (hear, hear). He was not one of those who would say that there was no use for the House of (Lords. It was quite possible that the House of Lords might do good work in a case where the Go- vernment might go in advance of public opinion, but when the House of Lords resisted the will of the nation they were doing what was tantamount to ringing the- knell of their existence (hear, hear). Councillor R. Gwyne-ddon Davies seconded the motion, and remarked that he quite be- lieved that that, matter could be considered with out any trace of politicatl bias, and he would urge upon all the. members to give a unani- mous vote upon the question—hear, hear)—- and to look upon it from a national point of view. Ireland and Scotland were allowed to manage their educational affiairs, and he was rigiit in saying that Jersey and Guernsey, those small communities, were a/1 so allowed to manage their own affairs in education, and they were in a similar position to Wales in regard to the bilingual difficulty. A National Council wjoluld t(and in tjhle dineotiion ofl jetffiteiefney. Every nation had its own bent, and men be- longing to that nation were the best to consider its educational needs. They wouild be men well trained in educational matters., and would disregardl every political and seCT-arian con- sideration. That 'had been the history of edu- cation in Wales ever since the foundation of the College at Aberystwyth. Churchmen and Nonconformists had worked side by side to maintain the lead Wales had given to the Em- pire in the matter of education (hear, hear). Councillor R. Thomtas proposed that the 100Uillcil proceed to the next business. The question raised was a political one, and he maintained that politics ought not to be al- lowed to enter the Council chamber. The tact that the independent candidates were retained at the head of the poll in the last ejection proved that the ratepayers did not wish them to discuss politics there. Councillor Nee seconded the amendment, and remarked that he differed from the mover of the original resolution when he said that that question was not a. political one. He did not know what the original intention of the con- veners of the Llandrindod Conference might have been. Very likely it was intended that the question should be kept free from politics, but it could not be said, now that the matter I had been debated in both "Houses of Parliament, that it was not a political one. They had been elected to represent the ratepayers, and were not there as a Parliamentary debating society. Councillor R. IR. Jones said that he was one of the independent candidates to whom reference had been made, but he would support the original proposition ias a Welshman and as one that had the education of his country at heart (hear, (hear). (Councillor H. Lloyd-Carter As one who does not believe in introducing controversial matters into the Council, I very much regret that this resolution has been proposed. If it is not a controversial question what on earth is it ? Councillor R. G. Davies Educational ques- tion. Councilllor H. Lloyd-Carter: You condemn the action of the House of Lords for throwing out a clause in a very controversial bill, and the concluding words of the mover of the ori- ginal resolution was an attack upon the House of Lords for having done so, and yet we are told that there is nothing political in it. Con- tinuing, fle-ma,intained that the question was a political one. Of course it dealt with educa- tion, but it dealt with an educational matter that was highly controversial. If it was not a political matter, he wished to know what it was. Everybody knew what his political views were when it came to a, Parliamentary election, but in the Council he would adhere to the pledge he made to the electors that no politics would emanate from him, because the har- mony of meetings of local authorities was de- stroyed by the introduction of questions of the kind raised that night. It had been said that the Town Council had something to say to a matter of that kind. He asked what had they to say? They had not been consulted about the drawing out of the clause, and they were too small an authority to he entitled to elect a representative to the proposed Council, and, therefore, were merged in the county' Merely because they had the power to appoint managers of local schools it was contended that they were directly concerned in the matter, but they were nothing of the krnd. On the previous day he saw Mr W. G. Thomas, whose speech was couched in wry moderate terms, and appealed to him-and he appealed to the Council that, night—not to divide the members. He (the speaker) pro- tested against abstract resolutions -being dis- cussed by local authonties, County Councils, omnilr^L }?duded- "We have our opinion about tnem," said Mi- Lloyd^Carter and you cannot expect us to agree to tl>em' SieL^'V^l S1/6nt we SH1 b« told that, *4 ufr' • 1 we ar€ ™ favour."

They oould not contradict his- tory it was a fact. He hoped that the Coun- pass to th,e next business. Alderman R. Parry said that he had not intended to say anything, because Tie thought everybody would have accepted the resolution as a non-political one. He was very sorry that such had not been the case, and that Mr Lloyd- Oarter had entered into a controversial matter. It was useless now to discuss whether so many secondary schools should have been estaib- lished. The fact remained that Wales pos- sessed a secondary education system. The clause rejected by "the House of Lords would have consolidated education in Wales (hear, hear). They in Wales had already authority over their intermediate schools land colleges, and surely they ought to have some authority over their elementary schools. He hoped that the question would be looked at not from the narrow view of political rivalry between Con- servative and Radicals, but from the broader view of policy as far as the case of Wales was concerned. While the constituents which formed the British Empire desired unity, God save thjem from uriifarmi'ty—((hear, hear)- which would mean our losing our individual- ism. He asked them to think imperially and vote unanimously for the motion. On a division eight voted for the amend- ment, nameily: Messrs H. Lloyd-Carter, R. Thomas, M. E. Nee, J. Pri chard, W. Lloyd Griffith, T. Armstrong, E. Parry, and J. P. Gregory and eleven for the original motion. Mr Rees Hughes did not vote.
I HONEST WELSH FARMERS SATISFACTORY ANALYSIS IN CARNAR- VONHIRE. In order to carry out the wishes of the Gwyr- fai Rural Council that the milk supply of the district should be analysed, Dr 'FraseT, medical officer of health, reported to the Council, on Saturday, that he had made a medical and bacteriological examination of the 17 samples obtained in the district between Penygroes and Portdinorwic. Generally, the samples were those of rich, pure milk. The reputation of Welsh cows for giving milk rich in fat had been well maintained, the minimum standard of 3 per cent. being exceeded in every case. I "This important fact," continued Dr Fraser, I "that no abstraction of cream was found, is I just what we would expecti from the honest Welsh farmers." Mr T. J. Lloyd complimented the milk pro- ducers of the district u-pon the satisfactory character of the report -as far as it went, and he thought that 'Dr (Fraser should be empowered to carry his investigations further. Mr Henry Parry (Llanrug) said that a great) deal more remained to be done. He complained that landowners charged1 high rents for farms having buildings totally unfit for cattle. The report was ordered to be circulated among the milk producers affected, by it, and the medical officer was authorised to continue his investigations.
FINANCE. Councillor W. T. Williams was appointed chairman for the ensuing year. The matter of the street lighting was ordered to be referred to the Highway Committee to go fully into the matter.

HIGHWAY COMMITTEE. Alderman Hugh Thomas was appointed chair- man of this committee. A letter was read from the manager of the N.P. Bank complaining of a drain running along the basement of the house in Rulkeley- tteTrace. The matter was left to the town clerk and surveyor to deal with.

After -consideration of the letter of Mrs Sydney Mason, it was decided) to pay half the a permanentl caretaker for the ceme- tery. The surveyor was instructed to deal with the briars and roots undermining the wall at the cemetery.

Williams, Qf the Britannia Slate Works, Llanfair P.G., wrote asking the Coun- cil to support him in the matter of a scheme for supplying electrical energy- for lighting and power purposes in the districts of Menai Bridge and Llanfair P.G. It was decided to support the application, with the usual clauses safeguarding the inter- ests of the borou clI.
iNFJW POST OFFICE. On the motion of Councillor Hugh Thomas (jUDr.) it was decided to make application to the Postmaster-General to have a new Post Office for Beaumaris. also to ask the county member to support) the application.

FBEAUMARIS TOWN COUNCIL NEW POST OFIFICE. I The monthly meeting of the Town Council was held on Tuesday, Councillor J. H. Burton (Mayor) in the chair.
COMPANY PROMOTER FINED A NORTH WALES COPPER SCHEME. At the Guild Hall Police Court, London, on Monday, Frederick Ernest Copley, the pro- moter of the Glistening Valley Copper Mine, Limited, was, under the Industrial and Provi- dent Societies Act, fined JB60 and P,8 8s costs for having caused omissiom to be made in the r balance-beet and annual return and for having made false statements as to the fundis and effects of fhe society with intent to deceive. Mr Barlow, on behalf of the Chief Registrar of Friendly Societies, described the accused's conduct as an impudent abuse of the. Act. He caused it to be entered in the annual return that the total liabilities were -28 only, whereas there was at the date a liability in respect of a first mortgage bond of £ 2,500. The society was incorporated in 1903, but a strange state of things was disclosed in the first return, there being no capital. It was supposed to be a business of an extensive character, the company being described as miners, engineers, electri- cians, chemiists, asseyeTS, etc. The mine was in the neighbourhood1 of Snowdon, but the proprietor of the land, a Mr Jones, had since dissaciated himself from them. It would ap- pear that no business whatever was done. It was, in fact, all in the hands of Copley, and was incorporated by him for his own benefit.
