Protection v. Free Trade. I INTERESTING LOCAL DEBATE. The all-important question of Protection or Free Trade was debated with considerable warmth at the weekly meeting, on Monday night, of the Rhyl English Presbyterian Literary and Debating Society. The Rev. J. Verrier Jones presided over a good attendance in the Princes Street Schoolroom. The Protectionists were led by Mr E. Parker Davies, and the Free Traders by Mr R. LI. Jones, C.C. After a few introductory remarks by the Chairman the debate was opened by Mr Davies, who at the ontset of his arguments in favour of a policy of Protection, said that no question since the Home Rule Bill days had excited such dis- oassion and zeal as that which bad attracted his hearers together that evening. His opponent even, like his (the speaker's) own revered leader, had left a sick bed in order to advocate that night the cause he had at heart (applause). Launching into his subject, Mr Davies dwelt chiefly upon the agricultural question, and called attention to the decay which bad set in in that sphere of industry, attributable, he maintained, to the want of Protection. In support of his contention he quoted the following from the report of the Welsh Land Commission appointed by the last Liberal Government: — "Nothing short of measures striking at foreign competition in the interest of the classes directly concerned with agriculture can sensibly raise the profits of the agricultural industry in other words, nothing but Protection can be an effectual remedy." Mr R. LI. Jones: May I ask if that is the minority report you are quoting from? Mr Davies: Nn, the majority report (laughter and applause). As illustrating the decay in the milling industry in tbe immediate district, re referred to the mills now closed at Mold, Alun, Bag-illt, Abergele, Dyserth, St. Asaph, Pont- newydd, and Pentre, each of which, though .^niail, afforded employment tor from half a dozen to a score of men, who with their families made up quite a community. But since the United States began sending over to this country the white flour which decayed the teeth of the people —(laughter)—these communities had been dis persed, and the homes of the families broken up. If they could only go back to Protection he maintained they would soon see Wales again nourishing, its valleys joyful with ripening corn, and cattl" lowing on its tbousai d hills (cheers nnd laughter). He next touched upen the serious effect year by year upon the exports of this country's manufactured goods, wilich were dr- essing, while the exports of raw material were increa"in; also upon tht; increasing importation of manufactured goods as against a dtCreasins; importation of raw materials. The re-ult of all this was that the working men of the country were leaving the factories and flocking for work to the collieries. If this sort of thing W:18 to continue, the physique of the nation could not but suffer. Before sitting: down he moved That this society considers that tbe commercial supr. rraiT "f this country can only be retained by Protection." Mr It LI. Jone, in opening on behalf of Free Trade, said the previous speaker bad not gme so far as to say whether be was in favour of Retaliation or not, but be himself was of opinion there was n. distinction between Retaliation and Protection. Piotection was a term tb twas liable to mislead people. Taking up the argument of Protectionists that fireiguers should pay a contribution, by way of taxes, to the Imperial Exchequer, he asked-wby not call upon the foreigner to pay all the taxes? There was as much reason in the one as in the other (applause) Referring to the days of Cebden, he stated that in those days agricultural labourers were ka-ewn to be workirg for only 7s 6d per week, whereas at the preteut time, under Free Trade, they were getting as much as lfis per week, which was only one instance of clear proof of the advantages 01 Free Trade (applause). Mr Davies had main- tained that there absolutely no necessity to pliice a large impost duty upon corn. but he (the speaker) warned his hearers against the insidious southing syrup offered by his friend in that shape, for it was only a quack medicine (laughter). He could hardly understand why people bed the hardihood to come forward with such a remedy for an imaginary evil. Continuing, Mr Jore- uiad .> quotations from speeches byMrChamber- L,i" some years ago in support of the policy which he was now aitaoking. In one of speeches he staied that Protection would be the means of diminishing the rate of wages, lessening the productions of the country, and raising the price of every necessary of life. Continuing, Mr Jones gave voluminous figures in support of bis arguments, and in conclusion he pointed out that one of the important indusiries of the country—the shipping trade-had enormously increased under Free Tradclaiming (iO per cent or more than half of the world's shipping (applause). There were, ho said, evidences throughout the country of continuing and increasing prosperity—thanks to the poroyof Free Trade—and he contended that so far as Rhyl itself was concerned they had notl ing t) gain but everything to lose by Protection (applause). Mr H. Milliard spoke in support of Fren Trade, as also did Mr Robert J aHoy; whole Mr K Bromhv (Clerk of the Peace for Flintshire) and Mr LI. Evans (a New Zealander) spoke up for protection after which Mr McLennan moved the adjournment of the debate until next Monday, which was agreed to

< CYCLING NEWS & GOSSIP -:0:- Motoriata, cyclists and pedestrians are all of one mind with regard to the dust, and state that if any pleasure is to be derived from country jaunts, some method will have to be discovered whereby the dust raised by passing motorists and cyclists can be overcome. It seems that the only effectual way to overcome the nuisance would be a radical change in the existing methods of making the roads. The metal used in road construction is always rolled in with a certain amount of mud to act as a binding material; it follows, then, that as soon as the roadway becomes dry, the wear and tear of the traffic will quickly grind the surface into small particles, whilst passing wheels will raise the clouds of dust found on any of the main roads when fast moving traffic is about. We do not know how many road surveyors are giving this subject their careful consideration, but we learn that one at least has not only made extensive experiments, but has also obtained permission from the West Surrey County Council to treat a portion of the main road from Horsham to Brighton with specially prepared materials. The metal which it is proposed to use is Cherbourg quartzite, which is broken up into cubes of about one to one and a quarter inches, and this, after being thoroughly dried by being placed over iron plates set over a furnace, is treated to tar and pitch, and then left, so that the tar will work well into the pores of the stones. This is then laid on the roadway to a depth of about 5 inches, and rolled thoroughly in by a heavy steam roller, a dressing of sand on the surface completing the job. There is little doubt that a roadway con- structed in this manner will not only overcome the dust nuisance, but prove considerably more lasting than an ordinary road. The question of the most suitable height of gear is one that frequently perplexes the rider, more especially when new to the pastime. Of conrse, it is a question that is best answered by experience, but the following rules can be recommended. If the rider is fairly strong, and wishes to indulge in fast road work, he can indulge in a gear of 72; if he only wishes for steady road work (such as a tourist would indulge in) then a gear of about 64 would be suitable. Ladies of good physique might, almost take a gear of from GO to 65, but we would recommend one of 56 or thereabouts. If the rider intends to go in for a trailer, then a gear of not more than 54 should be fitted, in fact, we would almost think that a 48 gear, although very low and necessitating a slow speed would be found most comfortable when a trailer is attached to the machine. There seems to be a great deal of misconception amongst cyclists as to the proper degree of hard- ness to which Dunlop tyres should be pumped. Many riders are disposed to ride them too slack, and, when so ridden the tendency for tyres to slip on Greasy roads is very much greater than when they are pumped hard; they are also more liable to puncture, harder to drive, and wear out much quicker. Pump hard is the rule to be observed by all cyclists. The best results all round are thus ensured. How frequently it happens that when a cyclist changes from a low to a high gear he appreciates .the change, and feels considerably faster, and vice versa with regard to a high to low gear! The only conclusion we can come to with regard to this is that after a wheolmen has accustomed himself to a certain gear, a certain "staleness" steps in, and he gradually deteriorates in speed, whereas, immediately he changes to a machine of another gear he feels fit and fresh, and not only imagines, but actually rides quicker. Such has been our experience, and we believe the exper- ience of all those who have made the change. The first National Cyclists' Union championship meeting of the season, was held on the Canning Town track on June 27th. It proved most successful with the exception of the final beat for the one mile championship, which is considered the blue riband of the amateur race path. In this event the time limit of 2 minutes 50 seconds was exceeded, and the race was therefore declared void. A. L. Reed won this event, as well as the 5 miles championship, decided at the same meeting, with J. S. Benyon second, and J. T. Marnie third. This latter event proved a splendid race, and Reed only won by the narrow margin of a few inches. There were two motor-cycle events included in the programme, the first a five miles handicap, won by C. R. Collier, and the second a three miles match between C. R. Collier and J. C. Crundall. Crundall, who was mounted on a Dunlop tyred cycle gradually drew away from his opponent, and eventually won by 250 yards in the good time of 3 minutes 33-4/5 seconds. The fact that the competitors in the mils championship exceeded the time limit of 2 minutes 50 seconds, has drawn forth a howl of disapproval from those who have the interest of cycle racing at heart. This "loafing" all but killed the sport some few years ago, and if the amateur men are going to hold back from doing their proper share of pacing, and treat the spectators to an exhibition of crawling, they will find that sport promoters will throw up the sponge, and not trouble to organise meetings of any description. It is hard enough now to pro- vide a programme that will entice the public to such gatherings, and if the amateurs treat them to such a shocking display of racing as that in the mile event, "gates are bound to fall away. It will be remembered that in the 100 miles race for the Carwardine Cup, which was decided on the Crystal Palace track in June, Olley, the most prominent rider amongst the competitors, was brought over by colliding with Meredith. Now some people are arguing that Meredith should have retired when Olley fell, and have given up the race. Certainly Olley only had to win the Cup on that occasion to make it his absolute property, having won it on two previous occasions, but we fail to see on what grounda Meredith could have been expected to retire. It would have been a very sportsmanlike action; but still, the fact of his continuing the race does not reflect in the least upon his character. Racing would be brought to a utter farce, if, when a mpetitor fell, the others should retire, Now that we have arrived at the season of the year when the roads are always in a more or les^ greasy state, especially where overhanging trees prevent a through current of air from drying the roads as quickly as might be, the cyclist who makes a point of taking an occasional run during the winter should look to his tyres and see that they are equipped with reliable non slipping treads. The importance of having good "non-slippers" fitted is not generally appreciated by the cycling public, but let them experiment on a greasy road with a plain tyro and a non-slipping one, and they would require very little further conversion. A really good non-slipping device, like the Dunlop, wards off a number of spills and should be used by every cyclist. Non-slipping Dunlop bands, for attaching to worn-out treads or plain tyres are supplied by the Dunlop Company and cycle agents throughout the country. The silent car or motor cycle is undoubtedly the one that appeals to the public, and the one to which they raise the least objection. On the other hand, it is qtlito c..Yy to imagine tbat if all cars were quiet complaints would become general as to their danger, and it would be a capital arrangement if all cars and cycles which were really noiseless had some device that would enable t.ho e^hp.ust to be made audible at tinic-i when driving in crowded streets, or along windinJ country roads at night. This could very easily be arranged in the case of a car, by means of two silencers-the two combined would make the engine perfectly quiet, while only one would leave the beat distinctly audible. In the case of a motor cycle, a lever worked from the top bar to the exhaust box closing a shutter would be an effective muffler where too much noise would be a disadvantage. Roderick Ray, an inspector of lights at the Edison and Swan Electric Works, Ponder's End, was summoned at the Enfield Sessions, by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to animals. The cruelty in this case was to a lively Irish terrier, who being driven to distraction by the noise of the motor cycle which Ray was riding to his place of business, darted at him, and threatened to gnaw off one of his legs. In order to put a quietus on the animal Ray produced a pistol from his hip-pocket in true Western fashion, and let fly at the enraged animal. Iu- stead of a fusilade of deadly bullets, however, the pistol simply sent forth a long stream of liquid into doggie's face, causing the [animal to beat all instant retreat, and at the same time giving veiit to the most piteous cries. It was proved in court that the pistol was known as a weapon called a "Son of a Gun," and by pressing the rubber handle, it squirted a stream, of burning liquid ammonia through the barrel. The dog was blinded and died in great agony. Ray was ordered to pay 20s. and costs, The liberties of dogs on the highways and the irresponsibility of their owners with regard to damage they may cause to cyclists, are both tending to become a glorious dream, and the day is rapidly approaching when the responsibility of dog owners will be fully recognised. Why doga should have so long retained the privilege of scaring peaceful citizens on wheels by their wild rushes and snarling bark, it is difficult to perceive, but signs are not wanting to show that members of the canine family will have" to mend their ways or else be a continual source of expense to their masters. A doctor at Newport, who had been brought over by a playful doggie belonging to a lady, prosecuted her for not keeping the animal under proper control. After hearing evidence against the owner, the magistrate inflicted a fine of 10s., and made an order for the dog to be iu future kept under proper control. Bicycle polo which was introduced with such a dourish, and for which such great things were prophesied, is now scarcely ever heard of the game which in conjunction with cycle racing was to have revived the latter and secured large gates, and which, in the mind of a few would grow to prove a serious rival to cricket or football, is now all but dead. Why the game has not taken on in the manner which enthusiasts anticipated, is probably due to the hard wear which the game entails on the maohines, not to mention the damage which occurs unless the players are of the very best, and every one cannot be an expert. To play properly; that is to follow the rules and ride dexterously, requires a lot of practice, and not many men will give sufficient trouble to do this. They start playing before they are really efficient, and, meeting with trouble owing to their own short-cominga, become disgusted and throw the game over. As long as cycle thieves experience such little difficulty in disposing of their booty, so long must wheelmen run the risk of having their machines stolen and by the number of thefts reported recently, the risk is considerable. The ease with which thieves find unsuspecting purchasers is really surprising, and one cannot help thinking that in many cases the purchasers are aware that they are buying stolen property. A case just heard at the Notts Police Court, is typical of many. Two youths having gained possession of a couple of machines, rode from Lincoln to Newark, and there sold the machines, one to a man for 15s., and the other to a woman for 5s. Considering the machines were worth at least three pounds a piece, it is not surprising that the bench severely censured the man and woman for purchasing them at such a low figure. In comparison to the pedal-propelled machine, the tyres of a motor bicycle have to undergo very severe strains, especially the driving wheel tyre which bears all the stress of propulsion. For this reason a satisfactory tyre for motor work should be exceptionally stout and strong, and be as near puncture-proof as possible without needlessly sacrificing the all-important feature of resiliency. The motor bicycle tyre manufactured by the Dunlop Tyre Co., is endowed with these vital characteristics, the best motor tyre in fact that oan be devised for its special use. George Shergold, to whom is due the credit oi being the inventor of the safety bicycle, has died in Gloucester Workhouse, at the age of seventy- five. How Shergold came to invent the bicycle, which was the progenitor of the bicycle of the preoent day, is a curious story. He was a shoe- mnker by trade, and at that early period in cycle history rode an old-fashioned bone-shaker." In order to get on this machine the old man was compelled to bring a chair into the street, so as to get astride it. His extraordinary contortions, however, in hi3 attempts to mount never failed to evoke a good deal of derision from the small boy and worthy folks of the old town. Shergold thereupon determined to invent a machine which ha could mount and ride with ease, and this machine possessed every essential feature of the modern cycle, front steering, rear and chain driving, and rotary motion all being employed. It was in use in the streets of Gloucester in 1876, nine years before the building of the safety of Starley, to whom has been given the credit of the invention. Subsequently Shergold stowed his machine away, where it rested obscure for many years, until it came into possession of the Gloucester Cycle Company.
