JOTTINGS FROM NA TURE. DECEMBER 5TH. That blood-thirsty little quadruped, the stoat, occurs more frequently on the Great Orme than is generally admitted indeed, though in most country districts it is as a rule outnumbered by the weasel, on the headland the stoat apparently is the com- moner of the two. On Saturday last a friend of mine trapped one in a hencote on the western sdde of the Head, making the fourth culprit he has secured this year. Ho has had genuine cause to grieve over the depre- dations of the individuals that have found their way into his fowl-house, and he tells me, with apparent consolation, that five stoats were caught napping there in 1909, but he has seen no weasel near his run neither this nor last year. He affirms that whilst the weasel only sucks the iblood of its victims, the stoat will not only absorb its attention to draining the vital fluid but that it will ofter make a meal of portions of the flesh of its quarry, for the bodies of some of the chickens and domesticated pigeons which he has found have been unmistake. ably eaten into. It is strange, I think, that stoats manage to subsist at all on the head- land there is comparatively little cover there, and those who keep poultry are ever on the alert for vermin.

Willie, go and wash your hands. And do it quick, before Lloyd George puts a land tax on them."—" Globe." A rollicking Radical father at Tonypandy found a new son when he got home on Saturday night. He promptly decided to have him christened John Dissolution Jones, and the mother is nearly crazv over it. When Sir Marchant Williams was tutor of the Bangor Normal College he had as one of his pupils Professor Henry Jones, the eminent professor of Philosophy in the University of Glasgow. The two do not always see eye to eye now. It is held that the County intermediate schools in Wales take the lead in the teaching of modern languages and geography. Several of the schools possess laboratories for the teaching of geography, and in the last new buildings opened a mathematical laboratory has been provided. In many of the girls' schools botany is taught instead of chemistry as being a more suitable subject for girls. During the last eight years 675 pupils from 67 schools under the Central Welsh Board have graduated in various universities 72 pupils have taken first-class honours in the University of Wales, and at least 537 scholar- ships have been gained during the last ten years at various universities, including at least 46 at Oxford and Cambridge. During the same period at least 390 former scholars have been appointed to posts in English secondary schools. Its Sunday School work is one of the glones of Wales, and there was never anyone yet found who could sneer at it, save, of co irse, the anonymons author of that egregious libel, the Perfidious Welshman." Up to the pre- sent, however, the Welsh Sunday School has not possessed a magazine exclusively its own, and the Methodists are preparing to take the matter up. If the idea meets with the success it deserves, the first number of the new periodi- cal will see the light with the New Year. < Students of the history of Nonconformity in Wales are under a debt of gratitude to the Rev. Dr. Hugh Jones, of Bangor, for the work he is doing through his History of Welsh Wesleyan Methodism,' upon which he is at present engaged, and which is being pub- lished in parts. Much light is thrown in the portion of the work already published upon the theological controversies in Wales during the first half of the last century between the Wesleyan Methodists and the Calvinistic Methodists, and which attracted so much attention in various parts of the Principality. Welsh has to be bear burdens which are not fairly its own. In his rousing speech at Nottingham, Mr. Littlejohns said that he recently called the Government a mawkish medley of parasitical lugubriousness, and the Daily News called him a penultimate azomptote who ought to be adumbrated with fissaparous apologetics. When Mr. Littlejohns after- wards entered the Nottingham Constitutional Club there were a number of gentlemen dis- cussing the speech. Turning to the orator, one of them said, I have just been telling-my friends about your speech, sir, and about the quotations which you gave us in Welsh." The Welsh phrases are given above. In a book just published, entitled Lanca- shire Life and Character," attention is drawn to the Strong Celtic element still existing after many centuries of struggle in the population of Lancashire, especially in the localities more particularly within the range of the blue hills dividing Lancashire and Yorkshire. There is an unusually large number of words of Celtic origin to be found in the speech of what may be called the Lancashire hinterland. It is to this Celtic race rather than to the Saxon element that one looks for homely humour, and the pre- servation of the folk-lore, as well as for the expression in a racy patois of the thoughts and aspirations of the people. There is a suspicion in not a few minds that the tarred road is prejudicial to health. Tar gives off, it is asserted, especially under the influence of the warm rays of the sun, peculiar empyreumatic substances which irritate the respiratory tract at some point or another. The Lancet is not disposed to accept that any really serious cases based upon this theory have arisen. If they have, the slight mischief can have been only transitory. Our contem- porary concedes that the process of tarring the road gives rise to inconvenience, and here and there it may cause irritation to the nasal passages and throat, but as soon as the sur- face mass of the road has set it is confident that no complaint on grounds of prejudice to health can be fairly levelled against the innovation. < Many years ago,at Salford Quarter Sessions, a man was summoned to the jury box, when he said, S our honour, I claim to be excused. I was brought up in Wales all my life, and I do not understand the English language pro- perly." You seem to speak the language very well," replied the Chairman. Well," retorted the Cymro, but these words are only common words, but in law, you know, there are many words I could not understand at all. "Oh," said the Chairman, I don't think you'll find that to be the case. I think it's worth your while to stay and see how easy it all is." I assure you I shall not under- stand it," declared the Welshman I've heard what passed this morning, but don't understand a word of it." Roars of laughter followed this assertion, yet Jones was sworn, f and (adds a paper of the period) he appeared to make such an excellent juryman that we hope to see him in the same box next session.

Conway Corporation and Mr. I Albert Wood. POINTED DISCUSSION. At the'meeting of the Conway Corporation yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon, the Mayor (Councillor Hy. Jones) presiding, the Estate Committee's minutes contained the following The Borough Surveyor reported that Mr. Albert Wood had pulled down a part of the Marine Walk wall, opposite the Quarry, but was informed that Mr. Wood would again re- build the wall." Councillor J. W. Hughes said he should like to ask the Surveyor some question on this matter. "When was the wall taken down, and did he consider that the gentleman in question had any right to take it down ? Was not this a second offence, and was it not also a great danger to the public? Had he any assurance in writing that the wall would be re-built ? The Surveyor replied that the wall was taken down on the 20th October without per- mission, and this was the second time. It was a danger to the public at night, because there was no light there. He had no assur- ance in writing. At the request of Mr. J. W. Hughes, the Suveyor read a letter he had sent to Mr. Wood on the matter, and added he had had no reply. Mr. J. W. Hughes then said that in 1876 an agreement was entered into between Albert Wood and Thomas Jones, Surveyor of the Council, whereby Mr. Wood agreed to make a road, now known as the Marine Walk. There was a most important condition from the ratepayers' point of view, and that was that Mr. Wood undertook to give sufficient road to enable the town of Conway to have a road seven yards wide-not seven feet. That meant that they were entitled to get another five yards from Mr. Wood, the whole length of the Marine Walk. In the document there was no reservation in Mr. Wood's favour to quarry the stone he was quarrying at present, and that was certainly no reservation that he should take down the wall. If Mr Wood said he had no right to take the wall down, then it was only reasonable that the parishioners should say that they had a right to go on Twthill. That was putting the matter plainly. He did not wish to be harsh on Mr Wood, who had been eleven times Mayor of the Borough, and had the Freedom of the Borough conferred upon him, and was also a Justice of the Peace. He thought that from a gentleman like that, they should be shown a good example, and not leave the Surveyor's letter without an acknowledgment. He would say that it was a deliberate insult to treat them in that way. Mr Wood had only recently built a hideous wall on Bangor-road. He did not say but what he was exercising his right, but let the Council also act strictly within their rights. As they knew, Mr Wood com- menced an action for an injunction and damages against the Council in respect of an imaginary grievance with regards to the Gas Works, with the result that the Council had altered the Gas Works, in o der to pre- vent the fumes going towards Bodlondeb. He should like to say in parenthesis that the Gas Works were there before Mr Wood came. (Laughter.) The speaker went on to give a history of the action, and added that shortly after the Freedom of the Borough had been conferred upon him, he was defying them with the Council property. He now moved that the Town Clerk be instructed to write that day to Mr Wood requiring him to have the wall which he had pulled down on the Marine Walk re-built during the course of to-day (Thursday), failing which the Town Clerk be empowered to institute proceedings against Mr Wood on Friday next for an injunction and damages. Alderman Netherwood said he had expected there would have been a competition to second the proposition. He did so with the greatest pleasure. It had been made quite clear that the boundary wall in question belonged to the Corporation, and Mr. Wood had no right to pull it down without permission of the Council. As regards the wall built in Bangor Road, he personally was not satisfied the wall actually belonged to Mr Wood. He maintained throughout that the Council ought to have fought the action with respect to the gasworks. Mr. Wood built Bodlondeb know- ing that the gasworks were there, and he believed if the action had been contested, no judge would have granted the injunction asked for. Time after time the Council had taken proceedings against poor people for very trivial matters in comparison to this, and we would say in future Do your duty as councillors and let us settle this matter once and for all for the benefit of the majority of the ratepayers." Councillor J. E. Conway-Jones considered that the resolution was a somewhat drastic one, and he suggested that more time should be allowed to re-build the wall. He under- stood that Councillor Hughes did not wish to go any further than to enforce the re-building of this wall. Councillor Hughes said that even at the eleventh hour he wished to be reasonable with Mr. Wood. Councillor Conway Jones said that certainly Mr Woodshould re-build this wall, but he felt that the resolution was rather drastic. There were possibilities that even Mr Wood could not command men to attack this wall at once, and he felt that a resolution calling attention to his promise to re-build the wall should be passed. Councillor J. W. Hughes said that Mr Wood had been given an opportunity to put right what he had no right to interfere with. The Council treated him in a most charitable way. Mr Wood, if he liked, could do as every other ratepayer would do, and apply to the Corporation for permission. Twenty-four hours was quite sufficient for any man who had done what Mr. Wood had done. He did not mean that he should re- build the wall in twenty-four hours, but he thought it only reasonable that he should send an assurance in writing that he would re-build it. If Mr. Wood could not do it to-morrow (Thursday) then let him com- municate with the Council offices in the usual way and ask for an extension of time. Councillor Stott said he took it that the whole of the trouble was about this wall. If he (Mr. Stott) did it he would be punished. He thought that Mr Wood should do as every other man did. Alderman Dr. Morgan wished to include in the resolution that the Council protested against Mr. Wood taking down the wall at all. Referring to the Bangor-road wall, he thought that was very important, and the en- trance to Cadnant Park was most dangerous. The Surveyor said he spoke to Mr. Wood on the telephone about this matter. There was no written communication from Mr. Wood. Councillor Hughes said that a telephone communication was not good enough. Let them ask Mr. Wood to take an assurance on the telephone. Mr. Wood was an excellent business-man and would not do that. Councillor Conway Jones said he was as democratic as any councillor, but he ques- tioned very much whether Councillor Hughes would propose such a resolution in the case of an ordinary man or a working man. He did not hold a brief for Mr .Wood. He thought it would be more regular and more in conso- nance with the dignity of the Council to refer to the promise of Mr. Wood to the Surveyor. I He moved as an amendmentt that Mr. Wood be given until Saturday to rebuild the wall. Councillor J. W. Hughes said he would agree to that, and the proposition was then carried unanimously. On the motion of Alderman Edward Ro- berts, seconded by Mr James Stott, it was decided to call the attention of the County Council to the wall in Bangor-road.
Sunday Golf at Penmaenmawr. VIGOROUS DISCUSSION BY THE DISTRICT COUNCIL. The chief subject of interest at the Pen- maenmawr LTrban District Council on Tues- day evening, was the question of Sunday golf. At the previous meeting of the Council, during a discussion on the agree- ment between the Council and the Golf Club, there was a remark that there was nothing to prohibit the playing of Sunday golf. This, when published, led to a considerable stir in the town, with the result that the churches took the matter up. Mr. P. H. McClement presided over the meeting. The Clerk announced that seven peti- tions had been received from the mem- bers and adherents of the following places of worship:—Horeb Welsh Congre- gational, Maenan C.M., Seion Baptist, Glyn C.M., Salem Welsh Congregational, and Jerusalem C.M., together with a similar petition from the Women's Temperance Union. Each of these had passed the follow- ing resolution That we appeal to the Council to insert a clause in their agreement with the Golf Club prohibiting Sunday golf." Councillor R. I). Owen had also given notice of a resolution, which he proposed to submit to the Council, that the following clause be inserted in the agreement with the Golf Club —" That the golf links be closed on Sundays." The Chairman called upon Mr. Owen to move his resolution. In doing so, Mr. Owen said Considerable misapprehension exists in the town in refer- ence to this matter, and reports have been circulated which were not reliable. I ven- ture to think that we are not approaching this question from a narrow-minded point of view. Such charges as being bigots and Sabbatarians have crossed the table, charges that were not deserved, but harmless enough. We look upon Sunday from different points of view. The modern world will not accept that view of Sunday observance which pre- vailed in other days. The majority to-day believe that Sunday should not be a day of gloom. Of this change of opinion it would be idle to complain we must accept it as the natural development of our time, and endeavour to give it a right direction. It doesn't mean that we are less religious, it may mean that we are becoming more honest. There is, therefore, NO QUESTION OF CANT in the desire to keep our Sunday as a day of rest. The labour involved seems to me the crucial test in all these matters of Sunday recreation. A minimum of labour there must be. The clergyman preaches, the doc- tor visits his patient, the driver pilots his engine. These limits are reasonable ones. But certainly we may insist that there should be no labour to minister to pleasure. Sun- day golf for golfers inevitably means Sunday labour for caddies. Then there is the labour for those in charge of the pavilion. Being registered as a club, and if open on Sundays, an attendant must be at the bar all day. This is in direct contradiction to the spirit of the Sunday Closing Act. By keeping I this place open on Sunday, we are- providing in Penmaenmawr an extra bar for Sunday drinking. It is no argument to sav that other links are open on Sundays, This is the age of specialisation. We specialise in Penmaenmawr in pure air, unrivalled moun- tains, a splendid seafront, and last, but cer- tainly not the least, a quiet Sunday. Those are the lines we work upon—we excel in those,—and don't let us depart from them. I have nothing but praise for those that have brought the golf links to such a state of per- fection. They have exercised great care, intelligence, and commonsense. The resi- dents of the town are against Sunday golf, the bulk of our visitors would take the same view, and ours would be a very narrow- minded policy if we did not, as a Council, cover ourselves from the possibility of golf playing and drinking on Sunday, especially when this movement is founded on Municipal lines. We have a duty to perform, that of keeping an even balance between different claims of society, and I firmly believe that we would not err in that duty if we said that the links must be closed on Sundays. Mr. S. Williams seconded the proposition. Dr. Jenkins Have the golf links been opened on Sunday ? The Chairman Not at all. Dr. Jenkins Then I don't see how they can be closed. Dr. J. R. Williams said the mover of the resolution almost insinuated that golfers were a SET OF DESPICABLE HEATHENS, and he was sorry to say that he was in that category. He was a golfer, and as a medical man was expected to work on Sundays, but any recreation was denied him. Many of the chapel and church folks took walks on Sundays, and he did not think it any worse to play an innocent game of golf. He (the speaker) had no wish to play golf on Sun- days, but he would have no hesitation in doing so, but he would respect the feelings of the people in the neighbourhood of the golf links. He saw absolutely no harm in doing so, and with regard to the insinuation about Sunday drinking among golfers, he doubted very much whether golfers were as much addicted to alcoholic drinks as other people were. He knew for a fact that the majority of the golfers had tea at the pavi- lion. Was it not an insult to the golfers to hint that they went to the pavilion to make it a kind of shebeen on a Sunday ? He strongly objected to that. He proposed as an amendment, that no Sunday golf be allowed without the permission of the Coun- cil. He objected to closing the links alto- gether on a Sunday, because he might want to have a walk around there on a Sunday. Even an enthusiastic golfer would not play during worship hours. There was no danger of any such thing. It was a positive insult to hint that any member of the Penmaen- mawr Golf Club would demean himself or go to the pavilion and sit down drinking there on a Sunday. They might go and have a cup of tea, but surely there was no objection to that. He hoped to go there some Sunday himself, but not to play, but surely the Council were not going to deny him having a cup of tea. Mr. F. D. Chantrev seconded the amend- ment, stating that the people had been mis- led altogether. There never had been Sun- day golf at Penmaenmawr, and there never was any intention of having it. He doubted whether the Golf Club would sign the agree- ment if such restrictions as the one sug- gested was put in. He could not under- stand who had been talking to the people

Death ofMr. John Marsan, Rhos-on-Sea. iVVELL-KNOWN COACfi- PROPRIETOR. We deeply regret to announce the death of Mr. John Marsan, coach-proprietor of the Rhos Mews, Rhos-on-Sea, which sad event took place on Monday evening. Mr. Marsan, who was in his 48th year, was about his business as usual on Friday, but returned 31 home on the evening of that day complaining of the bitter East wind which prevailed. He had received a severe chill and went to bed, and passed away on Monday as above stated. Mr. Marsan, who was a native of Bolton, first visited Rhos-on-Sea about a quarter of a century ago as coachman to a private family, and his periodical visits in that capacity caused him to form a great liking for Rhos, with the result that about 12 years ago he started business on his own account as a carriage proprietor. As the beautiful resort developed so did Mr Marsan's business increase, until he became the possessor of the new and up-to-date Rhos Mews, which are a model of their kind. A great lover of horses and neat turnouts, Mr Marsan's name had become very well-known, and he and his men were always present at festive and other functions with smart equipages. Mr. Marsan took a real pride in his business, and many are the people who remember how beautiful were his turnouts in the Colwyn Bay and Rhos-on- Sea May-Day Festivities, where he was fre- quently the winner of first prizes. Mr. Marsan was a man of strong physique, and a well-known figure in the Rhos and Colwyn Bay district. His sudden death came as a shock to the neighbourhood where he was held in high regard for his courteous manner and genial disposition. To many in Rhos he had pioved a good friend and his loss will be keenly felt. Although frequently asked to take an active part in the public life of the district, he always declined, arguing that it took him all his time to look after his prosperous business as it should be done. He leaves a widow and a son and daughter to mourn his loss, and with them much sympathy is felt. The funeral takes place to-day (Thursday) at Llandrillo Churchyard, and will be of a public character. The funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Messrs. Allen & Sons, Station- road.

The private funeral took place yesterday (Wednesday) at Llandrillo Church- yard, and was conducted by Canon Roberts and the Rev. Rees Morris. Messrs Allen and Sons were the undertakers. PUBLIC OFFICIAL'S SUCCESS.—Mr. Watson Hartley, F.I.S.A., L.A.A., Assistant Accountant to the Colwyn Bay Urban Dis- trict Council, has gained very striking recog- nition of his abilities. A new loans ledger which he devised for recording the loan transactions of local authorities has just been purchased from him, and published as a standard form, by Messrs. Shaw & Sons; the well-known Local Government pub- lishers. This form, the details of which will be readily intelligible to and appreciated by all concerned in municipal finance, is designed to afford a maximum of information with a minimum of labour,, and from what we hear, there is very likely to be a considerable de- mand for the book, which is described as Hartley's Loans Ledger." Colwyn Bay Bay Council should feel gratified to find one of their officials gaining such distinction. Mr. Hartley has this week been elected a Fellow of the Incorporated Secretaries' Association and a Licentiate of the Central Association of Accountants. OBITUARY.—The funeral of Miss Hum- phreys, of Sandal, Colwyn Bay (whose death was recorded in last week's issue), took place on Saturday, at Bronynant Cemetery. The Rev^ T. Lloyd, Colwyn Bav, and the Rev, W E. Jones (Penllyn), Old Colwyn. officiated. Beautiful floral tributes were received, and numerous letters of condolence from sym- pathising friends far and near. The under- takers were Messrs. D. Allen & Sons, Colwyn Bav. The relatives of the late Miss Hum- phreys desire to return thanks for the many expressions of sympathy extended to them in their sad bereavement.
the day of the poll it is of course impossible to forecast, but it is difficult to see why they should support Mr. Austin Jones on his own merits as revealed by himself. The candi- date who assures an audience that, if Tariff Reform should raise the cost of living to the working classes, he will insist upon his party passing a law to force the employers to pay increased wages—well, that candidate has a great deal to learn before he can prove his fitness to represent an intelligent electorate in Parliament. But this is the type of op- ponent who seeks to displace the most dis- tinguished statesman our country has pro- duced, a Minister of the Crown whose name is honoured throughout the Empire, alike for his rare personal courage and his splendid political sagacity. We have never held that the Conservatives of the Boroughs are not entitled to oppose Mr. Lloyd George's return to Parliament, but for their own credit's sake we would expect them to bring forward a candidate capable of presenting an intelligible exposition of their political faith. That this condition again is lamentably lacking is only too clearly proved by the Deganwy speech and the election address. Mr. Austin Jones may some day enter St. Stephens, and if he does so we wish him a successful Parliament- ary career. But whatever the future may have in store for him he has not up to now evinced that aptitude for statesmanship which one would expect to find in a candi- date whose aim is to unseat a Member who has long since proved his special fitness, not only to represent Carnarvon Boroughs, but to be the chosen leader of the democracy of these islands. Mr. Austin Jones, quite apart from any opinion as to his personal abilities, comes before the electorate with a blank record. Mr. Lloyd George, in seeking a renewal of his own people's confidence, submits a record of long, faithful, self-sacrificing, distinguished and fruitful service. Which will they pre- fer ? Surely they will chose to be repre- sented by a Member who has accomplished great things on their behalf, and who has paved the way for even greater benefits in the future. Sentiment has a great deal to I do with the results of elections in some places. But Mr. Lloyd George would scorn to appeal to mere sentiment in this contest, even although it is overwhelmingly in his favour. No he comes forward with an inalienable right to point to his record of honest work done. Moreover, he comes forward as the champion of principles which he believes in and cherishes, principles that are dear to the hearts of the vast majority of his countrymen, those principles which ennoble and uplift a nation and are destined to prevail. By voting for Mr. Lloyd George, the electors range themselves in the ranks of that great army which is fighting for the principle of free citizenship of a free Empire. Mr. Austin Jones in his address tries to mis- lead the public by obscuring the real issues. Masquerading in borrowed plumes, he is vain enough to suppose that the electors will take him for what he is not. He pays lip service to the very principles which Mr. Lloyd George has so long and so valiantly espoused, but directly his utterances are examined the note of insincerity becomes painfully discordant. He is foolish enough to expect that the wonderful dodge to sweep Lancashire," which resulted in such a complete rout of the Tariffites, will succeed in deluding the people of his native land, those people of a mountainous country for whom his friend Mr. F. E. Smith has such a profound contempt. The clever tactics, which proved too clever by half in Manchester and elsewhere, are doomed to similar failure in Carnarvon Boroughs. Instead of those tricky catch- words, adopted by the disunited Unionist party in a panic, Mr. Lloyd George stands before the people he has served and clearly and boldly proclaims his views, which show that he has not deviated by a single hair's breadth from the line of policy he was chosen by them to pursue. Our Chancellor in giving an account of his faithful steward- ship can claim to have more than justified the confidence reposed in him. What, then, is the duty of the electors towards him ? It is to give him a renewed proof of their con- fidence and admiration and gratitude by returning him to Parliament with a grand majority—a majority such as will strengthen and hearten him in his fight, against such heavy odds, on behalf of popular liberties.
in the places of worship that the Golf Club could be so wicked to play golf on Sunday. Mr. R. D. Jones said he should like Me. Chantrey to name the person whom he hinted had talked in the chapels. There were only two against at the previous meet- ing, and he was one. It looked as if the charge was made that some of the members of the Council had been asking the different churches to bring the resolutions forward. The Chairman jokingly remarked that they could exonerate both the gentlemen who voted against from the charge, if such a charge was made. Mr. Chantrey said he did not mean to insinuate anything. The Chairman, as one who had taken a leading part in the construction of the links, said there never was any intention to have Sunday golf. He very mi doubted whether the Golf Club would ever introduce the question without first ascertaining the views of the Council on the matter. Mr. R. D. Jones and Mr. D. Gordon Jones spoke in favour of the motion, and the Chair- man and Dr. Jenkins supported the amend- ment. ment. Mr. R. D. Owen, replying to the discussion, said that if they accepted the amendment the pavilion would be opened every Sunday. They were the custodians of the ratepayers' conscience, and the r demand was that the place should be closed, He repudiated the idea that anv reflection was cast on the golfer;. There voted lor the amendment, five, viz.. Dr. NN- Illiam-, Mr. F. D. Chantrey. Mr. David Jones, D-. Jenkins, Mr. P. H. McClement. F."of the motion, four, vi?., Mr. R. D. Owen, D. G. Jones Mr. S. Williams, and fr. Thomas Roberts. The amendment was therefore declared carried.
