IMPROVEMENT OF STOCK. ACTION IN PEMBROKESHIRE. Mr C. W. R. Stokes, Tenby, presided at a meeting of the Pembrokeshire Development Act Committee at Haverfordwest on Monday. A letter was read from Mr Bowen, Llwyngwair, chairman of the committee, asking the committee to concentrate their attention for the present entirely on live stock. He understood that the Commissioners had granted £40,000 to the Board of Agriculture for the improvement of the breed of horses, and he suggested that the breed of bulls selected for premiums should be shorthorns, Herefords, Aberdeen Angus, and Welsh blacks. As to sheep, there was a difficulty re locating rams. He thought the committee should confine themselves to a system of giving premiums, and not purchase, at any rate until the machinery was complete, It was decided to make application for JS1500, jSlOOO for the improvement of cattle, and the remain- der to be afterwards applied to sheep and swine. A sub-committee was appointed to draw up a live stock scheme suitable- to the requirements of the county. It was stated on the authority of an inspector of the Board of Agriculture that Pembrokeshire pigs were most in demand in Cardiff Market.

Brace, Manorbier; William Brown, Nevern; William Davies, St. David's; Daniel Davies, Pembroke; William Evans, Llanrian; John Evans, Milford Haven; John James, Duffryn; Charles Jenkins, Broadway; Philip Johns, Kil- gerran; Thomas Lewis, Hanton; John Morgan, Pentan; John C. Morris, Mourton; Thomas George Phelps, Cresselly Thomas Richards, St. David's; Thomas Thomas, St. David's; George Thomas, Pembroke-Dock. THEFT AT TENBY. Frank Francis (19), collier, pleaded guilty to an indictment for stealing a gold watch and chain, of the total value of C2 14s. 7 £ d., and other articles, at Tenby, on September 14th., the property of Henry James Foreacre. The prisoner was staying at the Princes' Head Hotel and stole articles from a fellow lodger, and decamped with the property. There were three warrants out against prisoner for stealing a revolver, and a bicycle at Neath, and a third for stealing a watch at Bridgend. It was stated that prisoner, who was at one time in the army and served in the Welch Regiment, had been pursuing a career of crime for three years. The Chairman pointed out to prisoner that he could, if he wished, plead guilty to all, and he (the Chairman) would then take this into con- sideration in passing sentence. The prisoner pleaded guilty, and Mr Blakie, the governor of the prison at Carmarthen, said paisoner made a voluntary confession to him, and said he wished to clear everything up." The Chairman, in sentencing the prisoner to nine months' hard:labour, said if he came before the court again he must not be surprised if he were sent into penal servitude. SOLDIERS TWO. John Williams (20), private in the 2nd High- land Light Infantry, and James Joyce (19) vate in the South Wales Borderers, pleaded not guilty to indictments charging them with stealing a watch of the value of £3 10s., a purse of the value of Gd., and railway ticket, from John Shannon, at Llanwnda, on September 16th. Mr Howell Owen (instructed by Mr Vaughan, Fishguard), prosecuted for the Crown. John Shannon, the prosecutor, said he was a boiler cleaner, and came from Cardiff by train, and lost the boat at Fishguard. He was waiting for the next boat when he met the prisoners on the platform. They went together to a public- house where they had three sleevers of beer each. By and bye they went back to the platform and went into a waiting room, where he lay down to sleep on a settee with Williams on his left hand, and Joyce a short distance away. He slept for about half-an-hour and was awakened by feeling a hand being withdrawn from his trousers pocket. He found Williams withdrawing his hand from his pocket, and finding his watch guard hanging down he accused Williams of stealing the watch. Williams then struck prose- cutor, while Joyce closed. the door and stood with his back against it. Every time prosecutor attempted to get out he was struck by one or other of the prisoners. At last he got away, and on to the platform, where the station-master and some men came up. In the end the police were sent for and the watch was found in Williams's possession. The empty purse was found in the waiting-room, and the ticket was handed to pro- secutor by Williams. The prisoners were in uniform, Williams of a Highland regiment, and Joyce (of the South Wales Borderers), had on a military overcoat. David Thomas Jones, the station-master, said he heard a noise, and going to the spot he found Shannon and the two prisoners. Shannon was bleeding profusely. They were all excited, but not drunk. He sent a man for a policeman. P.S. Lewis said he found the men on the plat- form, and Shannon accused Williams of stealing his watch. Williams demanded to be searched, and witness searched him. On taking off his cap, he found a watch concealed in his hair, which dropped to the floor. Williams said he found the watch on the floor. He took both men into custody. Joyce was on furlough, and was going home to Ireland. Williams was returning from his furlough, from Cork. Williams handed in a written statement, to the effect that he found the watch on the floor and it was because he was falsely accused of stealing it that he struck Shannon. Joyce had nothing to say. The jury found Williams guilty, but could not find sufficient evidence against Joyce. The Chairman-I agree with you gentlemen it would be too dangerous. Joyce was discharged, Williams was given three months' hard labour, to commence from September 16th.

As I am enjoying a holiday in London I will only say in reply to Spectator that he evidently had information at command about the loan for the Jubilee sewer which I had not, and his state- ments confirm the views I have venti- lated so often, to the effect that public business is done by a few in private, and interested people are kept in igno- rance of what is going on. I still believe the sewer was made in the dead of winter to give work to supporters of the Incubus," and the fact that it was started during my absence is curiously significant. As Spectator has shown that he is in the confidence of the Incubus," perhaps he will enlighten us about the £200 per annum paid to an absentee Treasurer. He can, of course, if he likes the question is will he ? The sewer is un fait accompli, but the Treasurer's salary is still a burden on the town's exchequer. Mr Preece James has not only sub- mitted a scheme for the re-construction of the Culvert at a moderate price, but has also sent in offers to carry out the work by contractors of repute, and, this being so, a majority of the Council have felt compelled to support his scheme and authorise the neccessary applica- tion to the Local Government Board for permission to proceed with it. I hope the Incubus" will give the scheme fair play, and not indulge in tactics likely to delay this important improvement, and I am led to make this appeal because of Spectator's" remark:—" To carry his views to a logical conclusion, all new houses should be deprived of drainage connections until another culvert is provided. And when will that be ? # Ah! Not until the" Incubus" has its power to throttle the advancement of Tenby taken from it. Not until the town is ruled by men who have souls above petty feeling and party purpose. Not until the Town Council meet to mutually help forward suggestions likely to benefit the place. This being so, I ask the ratepayers to say When will that be?" They can partly, but promptly, answer the question on November 1st next. Although I have failed to carry my suggestion in the Council Chamber that the plans submitted by the engineers for the re-construction of the Culvert should be displayed for the benefit of the man in the street, I hope now that a scheme has been carried by a large majority, the plans, showing it in detail, will be placed on exhibition, either in the Council Chamber or other suitable place. The people have to pay the piper, why should they not examine the music ? Lots of people are more familiar with plans than the "Incubus" who spent 35 guineas in getting an opinion to the effect that a/r^ £ l2,000 plan was likely to be more effective than one costing £3500. Let all inte- rested be able to see what it is proposed to do. What harm can result ? Why should there be any secrecy? On behalf of my little fund for the poor widow, who has been obliged to take a month's rest, I have to acknow- ledge, with thanks, the receipt of 5s. from Mrs Thomas, of The Chalet. The Follies are playing to crowded houses at the Apollo Theatre, and richly deserve their success. The fun begins with the opening chorus, and is well kept up until the curtain descends at the end of the Potted Pageant." The entertainment is so entirely diffe- rent to anything produced at other London houses, nearly every remark sparkles with wit and humour, even the scenery is grotesque that everyone must laugh and feel merry whilst looking at jolly Pelissier, or listening to glum Lewis Sydney telling droll stories without moving a muscle of his face. One told of a gentleman who, whilst acting as judge at a race meeting imbibed so many whiskies and sodas, that his vision was a little affected. A race resulted in a dead heat between a black horse and a white one, but when an excited backer de- manded of the judge, "Which won? the black or white horse? he was solemnly informed" I declare the winner to be a piebald." Don't miss The Follies," however short may be your next visit to London. # # Of London plays The Chocolate Soldier appears to be one of the best. I failed to get seats on two occasions, and hear the house is booked up quite a week ahead. Inconstant George, Priscilla Runs away, A Woman's Way and Nobody's Daughter, are all playing to full houses at every show. The latter is so affecting that the sobs of many in the audience are quite distinct. The London Pavalion also has an excellent programme of twenty turns, amongst the best being The White Knight, an operatic novelty; The Romps represented by a dozen charming little girls three beautiful dancers known as the Trio Romanos," and a very laughable sketch produced by Mr Ernest Lotinga and Co. Messrs. Fred Wildon, Whit Gunliffe and Mark Sheridon, comedians of the very first rank, added greatly to the splendid entertainment. On Sunday morning London seemed to buzz with the news of the death of Prince Francis of Teck, undoubtedly a most popular member of the Royal Family, sincerely regretted by every- body. In the evening one heard on all sides Crippen is condemned," Old Crippen is to hang," etc. His sentence appeared to give as much satisfaction as the death of a good Prince had caused sorrow only a few hours earlier. Sunday I spent in a quiet and restful part of Ealing, hos- pitably entertained by wealthy friends who not only possess a good share of the things of this life, but know how to happily enjoy them. I resisted a strong temptation as we sat down to luncheon to give them the grace my Scotch fellow apprentices were partial to many, many years ago. It ran Some hae meat and canna eat, Some wad eat that want it, But we hae meat and we can eat, So let the Laird be thankit. F. B. M. THE TATLER."

DUEL WITH A LOUGH TROUT. PEMBROKESHIRE ANGLER'S EXPERIENCE. Mr E. A. Saunders, a well-known Pembroke- shire sportsman, in a letter to the current number of The Field, relates a recent exciting experience with a trout on Lough Corrib. "I was fishing," he says, "in a light breeze off Oughterard with a 10ft. split cane rod and a light cast of small flies. I hooked a large fish at 11.20 a.m. As soon as he felt the hook he made a tremendous rush of 40 yards, and it was only by following hard with the boat that we prevented all the line being run out. Then followed a most exciting time. The fish made determined efforts to gain the shallow water. For two miles we followed him, and then he sank to a depth of about 20ft. and sulked. In this position, with the fish a dead weight, the small rod almost bent double, and as much pressure on the cast as was safe, I was power- less. Our only hope lay in waiting, and in this position we remained for some hours, the pro- ceedings being occasionally varied by a long rush, only to end as before. Up to this we had not seen the fish, and were beginning to des- pair, as he seemed as strong as when first hooked. Fortunately, as the sun began to set a strong breeze crept up, and then began the most exciting period of the day. Back beyond the starting point we drifted, and then the fish woke up and made a glorious fight for free- dom. Not a moment's respite was there as the reel screamed out to his rushes, and the boat was turned this way and that in the efforts to follow him now and again he rolled on the surface, a sign of his coming fate, but only to dart off again with renewed vigour. His great strength, however, failed at last, and at 10 minutes to V, in semi-darkness (after V2 houis 2 fight), the net enfolded one of the gamest trout that ever lived. His weight was 61b., and with his small head and deep body his shape was simply perfect."
TENBY MAGISTRATES. To the Editor of the Tenby Observer. SIR,—Your remarks on the above are timely. We at Tenby do want some new magistrates; whenever the Bench sits the same set of gentle- men turn up and do all the work, though, of course, there is no guarantee that it will always be convenient for these Justices to discharge their duties. This will mean sooner or later that there will be a dearth of magistrates, and a consequent interference with the smooth progress of magis- terial work in the Borough. I quite agree with you that it is high time the attention of the Lord Chancellor was called to the matter, and some additions made. I only hope your advocacy will be successful.—Yours, etc., Tenby, October 15th, 1910. A BURGESS.
THE PEMBROKE BOROUGHS. To the Editor of the Tenby Observer. SIR,—I noticed that letters are beginning to appear in the Pembrokeshire papers with regard to the Conservative candidate for the Pembroke Boroughs at the next election but would it not be better if the Tory Party in the constituency let well alone ? At present we have an excellent member in Sir Owen Philipps, a gentleman, who, I have every reason to believe, was returned by the votes of both sides, thus showing that a good local man is appreciated.. As to Sir Owen's use- fulness at Westminster, his past record speaks for itself, and the Pembroke Boroughs have never been more ably and more satisfactorily represented than they are just now. The Conservatives have made several attempts—all ineffectual—to unseat Sir Owen, but as long as they have to import out- siders at the eleventh hour they will never make an alteration in the political colouring of the representation of this constituency. Nor is it altogether fair to the sitting member that he should have to be called upon to guard his seat against these "aliens." They come without a six- penny stake in the constituency, fathered by the Tory Caucus, and although they cannot win the seat, in fact, have not the faintest chance of doing so, they cause needless expense and turmoil. If the Conservatives were to run a genuine local man—a man resident in the County, with a prac- tical interest in it—and a man who, if returned, would give his constituents as good service as Sir Owen Philipps, then there would be some excuse for an election. But as things have been arranged the last few years, the Conservatives have had no chance of winning. Their candidates have all been rank outsiders, carpet-baggers." I believe is the correct, if somewhat vulgar term, for these gentry. If they are thinking of securing yet another alien to contest the seat at the next General Election, let them pause before fixing up another political farce." Yours truly, October 24th, 1910.

TENBY MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS. To the Editor of the Tenby Observer. SIR,—I saw in your contemporary last week some remarks re the new sewer, but Spectator omitted to make any remarks re the Borough Treasurer's salary, also the refuse removal scan- dal, both of which are of the most vital importance to the ratepayers of Tenby. Perhaps at a near date he will give us the why and wherefore re the paying away of JE200 per annum to an absent official, and also what good accrues to the town by its being done. Surely we should have some information why this is done, and also why the lowest tender was not accepted for the removal of the town's refuse, seeing that the present contractor is allowed to continue depositing refuse on the Marsh. I saw by the papers that the lowest tender was refused on this account, and also a disused quarry at Black Rock and on Holloway Farm, all of which were EP.id to be too near the town. I fail to see the consistency in a Council allow- ing this refuse to be deposited on the Marsh by the present contractor. In the interests of the ratepayers of Tenby why had they not accepted the lowest tender and thus been the means of saving the ratepayers JE74 per annum for three years Would they do things like this in their own business? No! Then why do they not do the same with the town's business as they would with their own ? If our retiring Councillors wish to gain the con- fidence of the ratepayers of the town, why don't they get the Mayor to convene a meeting between themselves and the ratepayers of the town, so that they would be able to give an account of the good that had accrued to the ratepayers by their repre- senting them in the Council. This would be a more straightforward canvass of the town than a house-to-house canvass at night. If they wish to gain the confidence of the ratepayers, let them copy the political candidates who come out on the platform and speak their views before a mass meeting. Are they afraid of questions being asked that they are unable to answer ? I think in fair- ness to the candidates and the ratepayers public meetings should be arranged before any municpal election, especially if the retiring councillors seek re-election and wish to enjoy the public confidence. Tenby, Yours truly, October 25th, 1910. A RATEPAYER.
TENBY MUNICIPAL ELECTION. To the Editor of the Tenby Observer. SIR,—Will you kindly publish this letter in your next issue ? I think I shall be expressing the sentiments of three-parts of the ratepayers of Tenby when I say the sole preventative of good practical and business men seeking a seat in the Council is because the meetings are held in the working hours—namely, about 11 a.m. or 3 p.m. Now, we all know that to attend a meeting at that time of day means a great sacrifice to mechanics and business men; but if the time of Council meetings were altered—say to commence about 7.30 or 8 p.m.—there would be no lack of good practical men coming forward to represent us in the Council, of which, goodness knows, we need greatly men who know when a man does a day's work, and when he does not. I maintain that nine-tenths of the work the Council have to contend with is practical work, therefore practical men are required to deal with it. I beg to throw out the suggestion that all voters in favour of altering the day Council meetings to evening Council meetings should vote only for candidates who will pledge themselves to support the evening meetings. Now, we must not forget the absent Borough Treasurer and the refuse millstone of JE222 which the four outcoming Councillors have tied around our necks. I say that everyone deserves what they earn, and I suggest that we treat them with contempt by not voting for them next Tuesday, but for the new candidates only.—Yours, etc., R. ASSOCIATION. Tenby, October 26th, 1910.
PEMBROKESHIRE AND THE OLDEST "BENCHER." Mr Henry Griffith, who was such a promi- nent figure at the departure of the Duke of Connaught wheu he left for South Africa, by no means looks his 95 years, while his intellect is as clear as when he made his name at the Bar. Difficulty of hearing, however, has come upon him. Mr Griffith told a Pressman on Saturday that his family had connections with Pembrokeshire. His grandfather was born in Flintshire, but his father was resident in Pem- broke. So," he added, of course I am a Welshman. More than that, I am proud of my descent." Mr Griffith proceeded, I was called to the Bar when I was 21 years of age—that was in 1837. Fancy, 74 years aga! As a Bencher, I called the present Duke of Connaught to the Bar 28 years ago. Probably I am the oldest Volunteer officer in England, because I joined at the initiation. I was appointed a captain of the Inns of Courts Volunteers. As a Bencher, I also called Prince Arthur of Connaught." Mr Griffith, notwithstanding his age, has a wonder. ful memory, and he went back to 80 years ago. He portrayed events as vividly as if they had taken place yesterday. From ancient portfolios he produced antiquated relics, and read them without the aid of glasses.
MILFORD TO NEYLAND. Milford Haven Council last Friday evening further considered the question of erecting a ferro-concrete bridge at Castle Pill at an estimated cost of JE3000. It was mentioned that towards the expenditure the Pembrokeshire County Coun- cil had promised £1000, and a letter was now read from Mr J. P. Gaskell, the secretary of the National Provident Institution, offering on beli.iif of the institution a contribution of £250. pro- viding the other property owuers interested con- tributed a like sum.
