THE LATE 2«r. @. B'arrii$ugf)es, CONWAY. It is with regret that we record the death of Mr. Kvan Parry Hughes- Minafon, Morfa Drive, at the age of 72 years, which sad event took place on Thursday morning last, after a some- what protrarted illness. The late Mr. Hughes was very well known, and was one of the most respected citizens of the borough. He came to I onway in 1875 to establish a branch of the then rapidly growing timber business of Messrs. P. and H. Lewis, Llanrwst. Previously he had been officially connected with the extension of th-e Junction and Llanrwst railway to Bettwsy- coed, when he acted as secretary and manager to the contractor. The old office of Messrs. 1'. and II. I-ewis in those days was situated over the Castle-street entrance to the Town Hall. Mr. Hughes had not long been in the town before he interested himself in all movements which had for their object the betterment of the vouth of the borough and the neighbourhood arid for many years he acted as hon. secretary of the Reading Room, which he really had been instrumental in establishing. He never was an aspirant for public honours, although several times urged to allow himself to be nominated for the Corporation and other public bodies. He THE LATE MR. E. PARKY fit I was a staunch Nonconformist, who took a most prominent part in popularising the new Burials Act of 1880 in this district. The intelligent and courageous stand which he took in connection with the notorious Gyffin burial scandal, which ul-timately became a subject of discussion on the floor of the House of Commons, was the subject of widespread comment at the time. He was a keen and enthusiastic temperance reformer, and did much to enhance the cause of sobriety and purity in the town. He was also one of the originators of the Free Church Council move- ment in Conway. For many years he was, in conjunction with Mr. Allan, the auditor of the Corporation accounts OIl behalf of the burgesses of '(.'onway, and he was also secretary of the St. George's Steamship Company from its in- ception. A musician of some merit, he was also ac- quainted with the mysteries and rules of Welsh poetry, and was the winner of numerous prizes. A great reader, a racy writer and a clear thinker, he was a fearless debater, a man of sound in- telligence and high ideals. He more than once, and in divers ways, suffered for his convicitions. His unimpeachable character and sense of jus- tice caused hirr. to be in constant demand as arbitrator in commercial and other disputes, and in the majority of cases his decisions were ac- cepted. For the last 35 years he had been an active member of the Tabernacle Welsh Wesleyan Church at Conway, and in this connection it may be stated that Mr. Parry Hughes filled the office of local preacher in the Wesleyan connec- tion for over 48 years, and that of class leader for over 40 years. On more than one occasion he acted as Circuit Steward, both in the Beau- maris and Conway circuits, and was for many \ears a member of several Synod Committees in the North Wales district. For many vears he was medically attended by Dr. R. Arthur-Prichard, who was most assidu- ous in his attention and care of Mr. Hughes, and one of the deceased's last messages was one of thanks and appreciation to his great friend, Dr. l'richard. Since his retirement four years ago his health had been most indifferent, and had failed gradually during the last few weeks. A month ago Mr. Parry Hughes took to his bed, and on Monday of last week his healih seemed to fail rapidly, and the members of the family were summoned to the bedside. He gave them a clear message of farewell, and the end came at one o'clock on Thursday. His family was one of the oldest at Aber, and his ancestors boasted of being able to trace their descent from Owen Glyndwr. He leaves a family of four sons and two daughters, with several other relatives. A happy coincidence is that the Rev. J. Wesley Hughes, a son of the deceased, was the Superintendent of this circuit during the last year of his iather's life. Widespread sympathy is felt for the widow, Mrs. Hughes, and the family in their bereave- ment. THE FUNERAL. The funeral of the deceased gentleman, which was of a public character, took place on Mon- day afternoon in the family vault in St. Agnes' Cemetery. At the house a short service was conducted by the Rev. E. Stevens, Ruthin, and the Rev. Frank E. Jones, Prestatyn. As a mark of respect, the majority of the places of business in the town had closed for the afternoon, and iall blinds were drawn on the route of the procession. The body was borne by the following bearers-—Messrs. John Griffith (who was the undertaker), J. T. Jones, W. Os- borne Hughes, William Hughes, Riohard Ro- berts, Evan Evans, Luke Roberts, John Jones, Evan Davies, John Edwards, Robert Davies, Wm. Williams, and George Edwards.

A Ion,; but impressive service was held in the i abernacle Welsh Wesleyan Chapel, which was v.-ell filled with mourners. The -ulpit, set fawr and other parts of the chapel were drap- ed. The service was conducted by the Rev. D. Tecwyn Evans, the resident pastor. The service was opened with the reading of a portion of Scripture by the Rev. Thos. Hughes, Bangor, after which the Rev. R. Lloyd Jones, Chester, offered up a prayer. The Rev. D, Tecwyn Erans, in the course of a short address, said they were that day laying to rest the remains of a good man, and he could very well quote the English saying, The majesty of goodness." A large number of de- nominations were represented at the funeral, which pointed to the fact that deceased was greatly beloved by all sections of the community. He also announced that a memorial service would be held in that chapel on Sunday even- ing next. Letters of condolence and apologising for ab. sence were read from the Rev. J. 0. Jones, Gyffin the Rev. Philip Price, Rev. Peter Jones Roberts (Blaenau Festiniog), Rev. John kelly (Holyhead), Rev. Evan Jones, Rev. Ishmael Evans (Carnarvon), and Mr. Robert Jones (Gwespyr). The Rev. J. Roger Jones, Seacombe, in his let- ter stated that he had been a pupil in the late Mr. Hughes' Sunday School class, and the ad- vice which .he had received at that time had been of great benefit to him. Tabernacle Chapel will have lost a deacon, the denomination a preacher, and the world a good -man. Mr. Fred Williams, Horeb Chapel, Colwvn Bav, wrote a letter of sympathy on behalf of the chapel with the widow and the Rev. J. Wes- ley Hughes. Addresses eulogising the deceased's character as a man of the world and as a worker in the chapel were delivered by the Rev. Dr. Hugh Jones, Bangor Rev. Rhys Jones, Blaenau Fes- tiliiog; Rev. T. O. Jones (Tryfan), and the Rev. O. Madioc Roberts, Carnarvon. An impressive service was brought to a close with a prayer offered by the Rev. T. Gwynedd Roberts, and the playing of the Dead March on the harmorfium by the organist, Miss Edith Jones. Mr. J. Jones, the precentor, wns in charge of the choral part of the service. The cortege re-formed and wended its way to St. Agnes' Churchyard, followed by a large num- ber of sympathisers. At the vault side a short and impressive service was held, the Rev. T. C. Roberts, Llanrwst, reading a short portion of Scripture and Rev. Wm. Edwards (Baptist), Conway, offering up a prayer. The funeral arrangements, both at the house and at the chapel were under the control of Mr. Owen Jones, secretary of the church, "nd Mr. T. C. Jones, Cadnant Park.
Mr. Lloyd George's Gift to an Indian Child. The Rev. Rai Bhajur, one of the native missionaries labouring on the Khasia Hills in connection with the Welsh Calvinistc Methodists Foreign Missionary Society, who has just started back to India after spending about eighteen months visiting the churches of Wales, was before his departure presented by Mr. Lloyd George with a Bible as a gift to one of his little girls who had expressed a wish for a Bible from this country. Mr. Lloyd George has written in his own narid on the flyleaf of the Bible the following words: From a British Chancellor of the Exchequer living among the hills of Wales to a little maiden on the Khasia Hills is given this copv of the Greatest Book the world has ever seen.— D. Lloyd George.

Improvements by Conway Corporation. THE FISHERY BOARD AND THE SALMON. On Friday, in the Guildhall, Conwav, a Local Government Board Inquiry was aeld respecting the application oi the Corporation for power to borrow £ ^95 in respect of private street works in Albert-drive and Victoria-drive, Deganwy, and ;(520 in respect of sewerage works at Pentywyn- road, and the extension of the outfall sewer at Tywyn. The Inspector5 were Mr. A. A. G. Malet, M. Inst., C.E., and Dr. II Timbrell Bulstrode, M.D. Those present at the inquiry were the Mayor (Councillor John Williams), Councillor Dr. W. Carter, Dr. Travis (Medical Officer of Health), the Town Clerk (Mr. T. E. Parry), the Borough Engineer (Mr. F. A. Dela- motte), the Borough Accountant (Mr. Hugh Parry), Mr. John Blackwall (Chairman of the Conwav Board of Conservators), Mr. Johnson, of the Lancashire and Western Sea Fisheries, and Mr. E. E. Bone, who represented the Marl Park Land Company and Mrs. Ayling, both of whom had land abutting the Albert and Victoria drives. The Borough Accountant gave the usual statistics, in which it was stated that the total amount of money borrowed was 671,4,60, out of which there was a balance still unpaid of ^39,427. The sum apphed for in respect of Albert-drive was £2475, and the Victoria-drive £3220. The application in respect of the extension of t'he outfall sewer was tiken first, and the Borough Engineer explained at length that the sewerage was discharged at present within 50 yards of the embankment, and with the incom- ing tide it was deposited in the harbour of the London and North Western Railway Company. Mr. John Blackwall said that on behalf of the Conwav Board of Conservators he wished to draw the attention of the Inspectors to the fact that thr present proposal of the Cor- poration would mean that the sewerage would be disposed of in the centre of the run of salmon. He hoped that precautions would be taken not to prejudice the free run of salmon, and that the Coq^oration would undertake to provide an efficient flap on the sewer, and that this should be maintained in a thorough working 'order. In reply to the Inspector, Mr. Blackwall said it was difficult to say whether the main sewer in Conway was in any sense detrimental to the salmon, as the Board never got a report from the netters of their catches. Dr. Bulstrode: You have no evidence that the sewage is detrimental to the salmon? Mr. Blaci (wall I cannot produce any. Mr. Johnson, of the Western Sea Fisheries, said he felt that the sewage must interfere to some extent with the run of the salmon. But the real question was whether the sewage interfered with the spawning beds higher up the river. Mr. Blackwall replied 'hat that was not so. The highest tides he knew of did not touch the spawning beds. The application respecting the Pentvwyn sewer was then taken, and afterwards the appli- cation in respect of Albert and Victoria Drives was taken. Mr. E. E. Bone said that on behalf of his clients, he heartily supported the application. The work was very necoessary, as the roads were practically quagmires in wet weather, also applied to have the loan spread over as many years as possible. The Borough Engineer gave a history Qf the T negotiations between the owners of the propertv abutting and the Corporation, which had been going on since 1906, and added that at a joint conference of the Corporation and the owners, a majority of the latter agreed to the Corpora- tior, taking it over on condition that they pro- vided one footpath only, and made the road 24 feet wide. After further evidence, the inquirv closed, and the Inspectors promTsed to report to the Bo ud at an early date. During the inquiry, the Mayor was excused his attendance owing to slight indisposition.
-=- Echoes of the Lianrwst Golf Links. At the Lianrwst County Court, on Friday, be- fore His Hono ir Judge Moss, Mr. Robert' Wil- liams, Tygwyn, Lianrwst, sued Mr. McFariane, of the Victoria Hotel, Llanrwst, for the sum of £ q 18s., alleged to be due for pasture of sheep belonging to the defendant during the years 1007 and 1908, on the Llanrwst Golf Links." ol I Mr. W. Twigge Ellis appeared for the plain- tiff, and the defendant was represented bv Mr. R.O.Davies. The plaintiff stated that Mr. McFariane had eight sheep grazing on the links in 1907, and ten in 1908, and that he claimed [9 18s. for the pasture of same. He said that Mr. McFariane had asked to be allowed to turn the sheep there in 1907 for a week or two, but that he had them there for two years. Mr. McFariane went tc the witness box, and stated that he had reason to complain to Wil- liams of not keeping a sufficient number of sheep on the golf links, to keep the grass down, as agreed upon, when Williams replied, You've got some sheep you send yours there to mine," which defendant accordingly did at the request and for the convenience of Williams. He had plenty of pasture himself on Caergraig, and would not have sent his sheep to the links ex- cept at the request of Williams, with the view of keeping down the pasture, and that as a mat- ter of fact he had only five sheep on the links, and that only during the summer of 1907, and eight sheep during the summer of 1908. In win- ter he always took the sheep off the links, and kept them in Cae'rgraig on his own land. John Lloyd Roberts, gardener in the emplov of the defendant, stated that there were only six sheep belonging to his master, Mr. McFar- iane, on the links in 1907, and eight in the sum- mer of 1908, and during the winter they were kept at Cae'rgraig on Mr. McFarIane's land. This witness said that he suggested in the be- ginning of the 1907 summer to Mr. McP'arlane that he should fmd pasture elsewhere than on Cae'rgraig for the sheep, otherwise he would not have sufficient pasture for the cow, and keep a small portion for hay. Cross-examined by Mr. Ellis, witness said that R. Williams sheared two sheep of Mr. McFar- lane's in 1907 and got the wool from them, and in 1908 he sheared four of Mr McFarlane's sheep and sold the wool to Mr. Mills for 8s. 6d. After the advocates had addressed the Court, His Honour stated that at first he thought there was 'something in the case, but as the plaintiff had made several mis-statements as to the num- ber of sheep on the links belonging to Mr. Mc. Fariane, and had on three occasions asked for different amounts for grazing the same, he could not accept his evidence after the expiration of about 35 years, when the alleged contract was made. He gave the benefit of the doubt to the defendant, for whom judgment was given, costs to follow.

The National Service League. MEETING AT COLWYX BAY. A public meeting in connection with the Col- wyn Day and North Wales Branch of the Na- tional Service League was held on I ridav even- ing, a the Church Room, Colwyn Bay, when there was a good attendance. County Council- lor J. M. Porter occupied the chair, and amongst those present were the Colwyn Bay Scouts. The Chairman said that he would look at the aspect of the question of the National Service League as "the man in the street." He was much impressed with one of the aims of the Society, and that was the strengthening of the national fibre and the sense of public duty. Although they might not agree politically-with two public men he was goi to quote briefly, they must admit that what those statesmen said was very apropos to the object of the League. Mr. Lloyd George, on the iSth October, :n a speech, referred to the idle rich, who after every possible education settled down to a life of idleness, and which Ir. George truly described as a scandalous and stupid waste of first-class material." fr. John Burns had also referred to the microbe of pau. perism, and that leisure without labour was a crime against society. He (the speaker) wished to put forward what he believed would be a pre- ventative for the idle rich, that they should join the National Service League, where they could have national training, and that it should be compulsory. There was no better training for a boy or young man than compulsory training, and voluntary service which the League en- deavoured to bring about. Whether they took the citizen, the political, or anv other view against the League, the latter was trying to stir up the nation to a sense of its duty in this re- spect. The whole trend of public opinion was in that way, and in favour of the citizen becom- ing more iit and awake to his responsibilities, and thereby get rid of the waste of their country. (Applause.) Major Townshend Logan. D.S.O., Organising Secretary of the N.S.L. ir North Wales, said that (olwyn Bay, as regards the League, was an example to North Wales. Steady, hard work- was shown, and Colwyn Bay led the field. People had said that it was perfectly useless to talk of the N.S.L. in North Wales. However, that was a groundless fabrication. Since last year they had made great strides and had more than doubled their numbers. The members of Parliament who had become members of the League had increased enormously. They could compare the feeling on the matter, when there were only three M.P.'s six or seven years ago, which afterwards rose to forty, and now was one hundred and sixty. (Applause.) They were all openly in favour of the League, and there were many more who were convinced in their heart of hearts that the League's proposals were fair and absolutely necessary, but who were under party or Government feelings, and who had to put party before the interests of the League. (" Shame.") It was said the word compulsory was un-English. The word was the Latin for enrollment, and was in common use in the days of Napoleon. A law actuaJlv existed in this country—the Militia Ballot Act- where every county could enforce it if there were not enough men to defend the country in case of invasion. But what good were untrain- ed men ? The speaker dealt with the cost of the League, and afterwards deal' with the absolute lack of moral training in the country, and said that -unless they did something they were bound to go down. Lord Esher had said they could not get more recruits, and the number required for the Territorials was 35,000. There was, there- fore, no alternative but a larger professional army or compulsory training. The former would be expensive, whilst the latter might be effected with good results. Everyone had a duty to per- form in the protection of the country, and every man ought to be proud that he was bearing his share in protecting his country from invasion. (Applause.) Colonel Johnston (St. Asaph) delivered an in- teresting speech upon the balance of power in Europe, which was necessary, and the pre- ponderating power such as Germany possessed. Our military weakness alienated us in the eyes of Europe. They should all work by joining the League in making England return to the days when it was great, glorious and free. (Ap- plause.) Splendid films of Invasion as it would be and Invasion as it should be," were shown on the screen, and were very interesting. The meeting was a great success, and several new members were enrolled.
