SOUTH WALES NOTjS. [BY COSMOS.) SCARCE ANIMALS. ARE polecats extinct in Wales ? One is "reported to have been killed lately near Aberystwyth. Mr J. W. Salter, writing about it to the Zoologist," gives it as his belief that in Cardiganshire the species is by no means extinct. Perhaps some of rily correspondents can furnish some particu- lars about the matter. About this time last year a wild cat was killed in Angleeea, and that, I should be inclined to think, would almost be the last of its race. Badgers are becoming very scarce, and, unfortunately, Lord Tredegar's hounds destroyed one on Thursday. Two terriers were put into a hollow tree in which, it was supposed, a fox had taken refuge. The terriers found a rather more determined occu- pant. They failed to settle it. Wales has harboured many of our fauna long after their disappearance from Kngland. In that famous chaptor of Macanlay s His- tory," if I remember correctly, he alludes to beavers in Wales in the time of Cromwell. IIENCE TENBY'S TEARS. TESBY is in dreadful danger over the Sus- pensory Bill. A correspondent has written to the Tenby Observer, and he tries to play upon the fears of the inhabitants by dark allusions to their pockets. Should the Disendowment of the Welsh Church become law, the result to Tenby will be to increase the rates. This is the manner in which it will happen according to this prophet of evil :— Here it is absolutely necessary that a large Episcopalian Church should be maintained, in which a multiplicity of services, conducted ac- cording to the ritual most favoured by our visitors, must be performed. So necessary has this system been found elsewhere, that in all pleasure resorts abroad you will find Anglican churches main- tained by the native-, notwithstanding that these latter are Catholics, Calvinists, or freethinkers. It may, perhaps, be said :— In Tenby Churchmen will provide the funds siecessary for their own Church." Not »t all. The disendowed Episcopalian Church of the future will be financed by those pecuniarily interested in the welfare of Tenby, quite irrespectively of their individual religious proclivities. It will have to trust not to Churchmen but to the house- owners, professional men, lodging-house keepers, tradesmen, fly-owners, Sc., of Tenby, for the visitor, whether he rents by the year or the week, will naturally say, "I am not taxed for a church if I go to Ilfracombe or Bournemouth, why should I suffer because your Welshmen have chosen to throw away your inherited riches?" A great, majority of the well-to-do inhabitants of Tenby have absolutely no pecuniary interest in the place; they are good enough to come here and spend money which they draw from other localities, and if their fancies are not humoured they will take flight and wander off elsewhere. So a new Church-rate will necessarily bo levied. Of course ■his ntnv impost will not be called a Chnrch:.ratf- borough rate for town improvement perhaps, Dr something of that sort. At first, probably, it will be raised by voluntary contributions but that plan cannot work satisfactorily, sectarian Jealousy will prove too strong. Obviously when the Church is disendowed Tenby will lose its topaz sea, its lovely bay, and splendid climate. People who go to the seaside are so very religious. The great statesman, Mr Bright, was un- doubtedly attracted by the Church services, eh ?" ITS TINTINX A EU LATIQNS. My experience of Tenby i3 that it would be very much better without the Church, or rather the bells but as you cannot separate one from the other it does not much matter. I went there some years ago to pass a quiet Easter, but those wretched bells on Good Friday and Easter Sunday nearly drove me distracted, [f the inhabitants would get up a rate to put down that infernal noise, they would attract more visitors to the town. When people want such a tremendous amount of summoning to the services they cannot be very fond of them. A person can catch a train or attend a theatre without such a clatter. If the Disestablishment of the Church will cause this annoyance to cease, I should say that Tenby would not suffer. HOW THE MONEY GOES. A CORRESPONDENT to the JSewcastle Chronicle furnishes an analysis of the number and respective tonnage of the idle steamers in British ports: 51 steamers under 500 tons, 118 over 500 and under 800 tons, 211 over 800 and under 1,200 tons, 126 over 1,200 and usder 2,000 tons, 19 over 2,000, 7 tonnage not, stated. 532 This is for the whole of the British ports, and the tonnage is for the whole 532,281 tons, net register. The figures are interest- ing as showing that the steamers that are idfe are mainly of the smaller types of vessels. In the total, for instance, consider- ably more than one-half are under 1,200 tons. The table does not indicate the com- parative ages of the vessels, but as of later years the vessels that have been built have been of larger sizes it is easily deducible that the steamers that are idle are not of the newest type. And whe.i the working cost of the latter is compared with that of the older types, the reason is clear for the larger numbers of the older and smaller steamers. RHONPDA POSTAL ARRANGEMENTS.

CARDIFF CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. ANNUAL MEETING. There was very large attendance at the annual meeting of the Cardiff Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, Mr E. U. Moxey, the retiring president, being in the chair. In pro- posing the adoption of the annual report and .statement of accounts, the Chairman referred to the non-success of their efforts to get better postal facilities. At no distant date, he said, they hoped to bring the Postmaster-General to his bearings. As to the question of railway rates, it was satis- factory to know that coal was not practically affected, thanks to the action of the leading freighters who appeared before the Commission, and°were able to put the matter right. As the report stated—"The maximum rates applicable to the most important items of traffic m the Cardiff district are rather more favourable to the freighter than before the intervention of the Board of Trade." The subject of telegraphic communication with lighthouses and lightships was before the annual meeting of the Associated Chambers last year, and he had the pleasure of proposing a resolution, which was carried unani- mously, and which was adopted by her Majesty's Government. (Applause.) His proposal was one declaring the necessity, for the safety of life, of lighthouses, lightships, and coastguard stations being m telegraphic communication with each other and the general telegraphic system cf the country where practicable. As to the Severn de- fences he was sorry that during the time he had been in the chair they hau not been able to bring this matter to a head. It was most important that the centre of a great industry like Cardiff, Harrv. and Penarth should be effectively protected. He had in his possession a letter written by Col. Ingram, who brought the subject before the Chamber. Owing, however, to the general election and the illness of Sit E. J. Reed the borough member, nothing had been done.' He would have pleasure in handing Coi. Ingram's letter over to his successor in the chair, feehng sure that when the Chamber approached the Government on the matter, it would have no difficulty in showing them that something ought to be done. The subject of coal shortages was not vet entirely closed, being still in the hands of the Dieppe Committee. Doubtless during she coming year a. definita series of conclusions would be arrived at. Mr Llewellyn Woon seconded the adoption of the report and statement of accounts, and the proposition was cirried. ELECTION* OF PllESlDEXT. The CHAIRMAN announced that the only nomi- nation for the presidency cf the Chamber was thatcf Mr Llewellyn Wood, who had the confl- rlfrtpp'of every section of the commercial com- munity. He had been with them all his life, they knew him, and they trusted him. (Applause.) —Mr Wood was accordingly elected president by a unanimous vote—After speaking briefly in acknowledgment, Mr Wood proposed a vote of thanks to the retiring president, and the motion, seconded by Co!. Page, was carried by hearty acclamation. Councillor W. J. Trounc# and Mr Robert Hooper were elected auditors. ELECTION OF COUNCIL. The following gentlemen were elected members of the Council -.—Messrs J. Andrews, J. Guthrie, John Gumi, E. Hsmdcock, Jun., Count de Lncovich, E. R. Moxey, R. Ponieroy, W. Riley, II. J. Simpson, and J. H. Wilson. VIC'E-PHESIOKNTS. Mr J. B. Fcrrier and Mr C. A. Heywood were elected vice-presidents. NO POLITICS AT TBS CHAMBER. The rgenda paper contained an entry that a circular letter had been received from the Dublin Chamber of Commerce, declaring their opinions that disastrous consequences to trade would ensue if the Home Rule Bill passed into law-— Mr Moxey (who, acting in accordance with the practice of the Chamber, discharged the duties of chairman till the close of the meeting) said there had never been any politics at that Chamber, and after consultation with gentlemen on both sides, he thought it inadvisable that the leUer referred to should be read. (Hear, hear.)—Mr C. V. Harrison asked if it was not competent for them to discuss the matter fvoin a purely com- mercial point of view. (Cries of Chairman ruled that the subject couki not Ie discussed there.—Col. Page remarked that in would take a week to discusss the Home BilL-The next business was proceeded with. PREFERENTIAL RAILWAY RATES. Mr J. J.'NEALE called attention to the excessive preferential railway rates on perishable gooos from and to Cardiff. He said that Cardi.r had storage accommodation for 60,000 frozen saeep, and could receive and despatch more quickly than London, Liverpool, or Bristol. Owing, however, to the preferential rates, not one-sixth of the meat came to Cardiff which otherwise would COlue. Were the rates anything like on an equality with those of Liverpool, London, and Bristol, Cardiff would now be supplying Birmingham and a large part of the Midlands with meat. As it was, boats which discharged cargoes of meat in London and Liverpool ca.me to, Cardiff, or Barry, or Penarth for bunkers. While the rate from Liverpool to London was 25s por ton, it was 35s from Cardiff to London, or 10s more for carrying goods 41 miles less distance. He went on to point to some of the fish rates, which h stud were even more flagrant than the meat rates. The rate from Milford to Liverpool, 269 miles, was 3CK per ton, and from Milford to Manchester, 282 miles, 40s, while that from Cardiff to Manchester, 163 miles, was 60s, and from Cardiff to Liverpool, 155 miles, 55s per ton. When written to on the subject, Mr Lambert, genera! manager of the Great Western Railway, stated that these facilities ware afforded in order to enable Milford to compete with Holyhead, Liverpool, a.nd Fleetwood, but why was not Cardiff put in a position to compete with those places ? (Hear, hear.) Ho moved That thin Cnamber of Commerce respectfully re- quests the flight Hon. the President of tlie Board of Trade to abolish preferential rates, either by means of the Railway Commissioners ur otherwise, and put Cardiff on an equal looting with other competing ports. It also trusts that yoii will compel the railway companies to act up to the spirit of the recent Acts of Parliament, and reduce the rates instead of charging tlie maximum amounts. Mr Jokn Andrews seconded, stating that in this matter Cardiff was labouring under the grossest possible injustice. Mr LLEWELLYN WOOD suggested that a- small committee should be appointed to confer with local members of I arliarnont. u MrJjKST*'a J ones suggested an amendment, too etiect of which was incorporated in a revised proposal by Mr Andrews, reading asfoilows:- lnat tnis Cnamber, m view of the grossly unequal laie* at piesent applicable to Cardiff on perishable goods, urges the President of the Board of Trade to take SUM acaon as may BE necessary to remove the mjustice Aiso, that Sir Bdward Reed, Mr Alfred homas, and Mr Bui me, M.P.'s bo requested to see the President of the Board of Trade on the matter. mr Andrews« amended proposition was unanimously adopted. THE INSTITUTE OF NAVAL ARCHITECTS. A letter was read from the Secretary of the Institute of IS aval Architects to the effect that m rhf, event or the Cumber of Commerce being willing to invit-e the institution asjain to bold its summer meeting at Cardiff the invitation' would ba most warrmy accepted. The letter further stated that th« best time to hold the meeting would be the first half ofc July.-Mr Llewellyn Wood (president) proposed that the invitation bo extended, the time to be as the Council of the institution saggflsted, viz., the first half of July. Moxey seconded tho motion which mat with unanimous acceptance.—Mr Heywood, who. Mr Wood said, did all the work in connection with the arrangements for the reception of the Institute last year, was asked to take up th matter again. This was all the business of public interest.

SWANSEA COUNTY COUNCIL. INCREASE IN THE BOROUGH RATES. The monthly meeting of the Swansea County Council was held on Wednesday, the Mayor (Alderman Chapman) presiding. A MEMENTO OF THE LATE MR D1LLWYX. The Mayor said he had received the following- letter Gentlemen,— Being one d:1.Y last week at the sale at Hendrefoilan, it occurred to me that it might be well for the borough to cherish some slight memories of the late Mr Lewis Llewelyn Dilhvyn, who so long represented Swansea in the Imperial Parliament. With this thought in my mind, I became the purchaser of the deceased gentleman's court sword, which I now ask you, as representing the town, to be good enough to accept. If you can see your way to receive it, and perhaps to have it hung on the walls of the Council chamber, underneath Mr Dill wyn's por- tmit, my object will have been attained.-I have the honour to be, gentlemen, yours very truly, B. EVAKS. —His Worsh ipsaid this was another of those graceful little acts for which they had to thank Mr B. Evans. Ho was sure the Council would be pleased to accept it in the name of the town and to have it hung as desired. (Cheers.) He moved its acceptance with thanks.—Col. Pike seconded, and said it was a, kindly and graceful act of Mr Evans.—The motion was carried. THE STRKNGTH OF THK FORCE. The Watch Committee, the adoption of whose minutes was proposed by the Mayor, recom- mended an increase to the police force of two men for the better protection of the St. Helen's dis- trict.—Mr G-wilym Morgan moved that the recom- mendation be expunged, and said the present was not the time for increasing the force, which he believed to be quite adequate to protect the town. He had some time ago brought forward a scheme for the reconstruction of the force, and if they had accepted that there would have been no necessity for this recommendation. Whenever he adopted this attitude it was insinuated that he was prompted by some personal animus sgainst the Chief Constable, bat that he denied. He believed Captain Colquhoun was a capablo and courteous gentleman, but his opinion with refer. ence to the force onght not to be accepted without question.—Mr J.Jones seconded, urging that no increase was necessary, and, in view of the heavy estimates for next year, the minute should be at least referred back.—Mr Morgan agreed to so alter his amendment,—Mr Pike pointed out that the steady increase in the population of the St. Helen's Ward rendered the proposed inenfese absolutely necessary. He declined to believe for one moment that Mr Morgan had no personal feeling against the Head Constable. Otherwise he would notactas hedoesfromtiroe to time.—Messrs Laker, I\ Jones, D. Harris, J. H. John, W. Richards, Leeder, and others having spoken, the Mayor said they, must not forget that they had asked for an increase of the force for five years, and since then thera had been a. large addition to the area of the borough, which necessitated five men being taken from town I duty, and since then they had had a large number of complaints from people in the outlying dis- tncts of petty larcenies, which would not have been undetected were proper police protection given. Though the nominal strength of the force was 99,. there were only 92 regularly in the force, and wnen they considered that some were em- ployed by the Finance Committee for fire brigade purposes, section house duties, etc., there were only available 35 for duty of all kinds at a time. Therefore to take exception to a paltry addition of two, and to waste so much time in discussion WAS absurd.—The amendment was carried. PROFOSED INCREASE IN THE RATES. In view of the exceptional interest in the question, it was decidcd to take the report of the Finance Committee out of its usual order. The report embodied a communication from the "treasurer recommending that a general district rate of 4-s 9d in the be made and lt-vied in two half-yearly instalments of 2s 6d and 2s 3d in the :3, upon the old borough, and that a general district rate of 3s in the £ be made and levied in two half-yearly instalments of 28 6d aud 6d upon the district added to the borough under the Swansea Corporation Act, 1839. The treasurer added "If the requirements of section 149 of this Act are complied with during the next six months, I have then to recommend that the second instalment of the rate in the added area be increased from 6d to 2s 3d in the —Mr James Jones, in moving the adoption of the report, said it was hoped that there would not be any necessity to increase the rates as was feared, as the Mayor had called a meeting for next Friday of the chairman and vice-ohairman, at which they were to be invited to see how far the estimates which led to the treasurer's recommen- dation could be reduced. He pointed out that amongst the estimates which could not be cut down was one of an increased precept for the School Board.— Mr Leeder, ia seconding, said they should begin by economising and catting down expenditure on luxuries. For instance, there was tha Free Library, the closing of which for a. couple of years would effect a saving of a penny in the He also urged that salaries which had lately been increased in an undue proportion should now be decreased till times were better.—Alderman Tutton pointed out that the Free Library reaily cost 2d in the The high rate now proposed was the result of mistakes in the past.—Alder- man Richards said the fault of exceeding the esti- mates last year last year lay not with the com- mittees, but with the Council, who continu- ally insisted on the committees doing more than they provided for in the estimates.— Mr J. A. Thomas hoped this time they would not make a rate for less than they knew they must spend. If a 4-s 9d rate was necessary it must be made, and the expenditure must be kept within it, fur if they made one for less, and the expenditure came up to the estimates they would be in precisely the same position next year as now. He refsrred at length to the expenditure on the added area, and uro-ed the Council to curtail it as much as possible.—Alderman Martin thought it would be impolitic to unduly reduce the estimates, for it was bad economy to have insufficient money for the purposes relired if they wanted a healthy and wetl-kept borough.—Mr Mayne complained of the bad attendance at the committees in view of the large expenditure often voted at those meetings at a recent meeting only five members out of 1a att#hded, and those voted an ex- penditure of £ 10,000.—In answer to Mr Leeder, the Borough Treasurer said the arrears in rates were not more than £ 1,000.— The Mayor denied that there had been any waste- ful expenditure or extravagance, and he therefore deprecated the making of reckless statements in the Council which gave a wrong impression to outsiders.—The report was then adopted, and on the various estimates coming up for discussion they were referred to the meeting to be con- vened. THE PROPOSED HE. BUILDING OF THE MARKET. During the discussion of ths minutes of the Ceneral Purposes Committee, Mr Harris drew attention to the proposal to let the market on a further lease of three years, and suggested that in view of the great increase in rates the work of re- building the market at a cost of be deferred I till the new lease has expired. He asked if the committee had any P3wer to act on his suKges- t,ou v_Alderman Tutton said "JNo. —Mr Harris I said then he would bring forward the matter in another form. THE RECENT OUTBREAK OF SMALL-POX. Mr Freeman, in moving the adoption of the minuses of the Health Committee, said the last ca«e oVsmsll-pox, so far as the borough was con- cerned, had been discharged from the fever h -nit' l m perfect health, aud so m tne town the of small-pox had been entirely stamped fn- But he was sorry to say that on the pre- C-iV a c^se vvas frroua^lb ,n^° fever r°U^ol'frniri Tirdeunaw which had been mi- SSd ton.

The Rev Alfred Edward Ormonde Harris, vicar of Stoke, who was found guilty by the Con- s 4-V Court, under the Clergy Discip me Act, oTintemperance during the discharge or his imma- terial dutieson divers occasions, appealed m Roches- ter Cathedral on Wednesday to hear the sentence of thf Bishop of Rochester.

MONMOUTHSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL. THE ANNUAL MEETING. The, annual meeting of the members of this Council was held at the Town-hall, Newport, on Wednesday. There was a large muster, in- cluding the retiring chairman (Alderman E. Grove, J.P.), Lord Tredegar, Lord Liangattock, General Gillespie, Co!. McDonnell, Mr Came Curre (high sheriff), Alderman Vaughan, E. Jones, Harris, Cossens, G. H. Llewellyn, '1'. Goldsworthy, Ellis, Mulligan, Parfitt, etc. THE ELECTION OF CHAIRMAN AND VICE-CHAIRMAN. Lord Tredegar said he never felt greater pleasure and confidence in proposing a gentleman for any particular position than he did innominat- ing Mr Grove as their chairman for the ensuing year. (Applause.) Every member of that Coun- cil had various political opinions, and most of them knew what were the chairman's political opinions, but he undertook to say that during the four years he had occupied the chair no act of his could be pointed to stamping him as belong- mg to one political party or the other. No other gentleman that could be named had such com- mand over the Council as he had and one shake of hia pencil was generally sufficient to silence those who were talking too much or going a little too far. (Laughter.) The attendance paper he held in his hand showed that the chairman had made 177 attendances during the year. It was almost incredible that a man should be able to give up so much time for the benefit of his county.—Mr Steel, in seconding the resolution, said there was a strong feeling against making the chairmanship perpetual, but when a good and approved man was to be had he thought they should not lightly make a change. Although he had frequently differed from Mr Grove, he entertained the greatest respect and esteem for him. and admired his cap&city in managing the affairs of the Council.—Alderman Eliis supported the motion, and it. was carried unanimously.—The Chairman thanked the Council for its renewal of confidence. — On the motion of Mr T. Parry, seconded by Alderman Vaughan, and supported by Alderman Parfitt, Lord Tredegar was also re-elected as deputy-chairman.—His Lord- ship, in reply, said that last year he lived in perpetual dread of the chairman being ill and his being obliged to take upon himself the arduous duties the chairman performed so we! He sincerely hoped that the chairman would keep as welllls he did last year, and then his duties would be light. (Laughter.) No doubt some day or other the Council would be obliged to give its chairman a salary, as the work of the position was increasingly heavy. (Hear, hear.) THE CHAIRMAN'S REVIEW A SUGGESTION, The CHAIRMAN then gave a brief review for the past year, and congratulated the Council and the kingdom generally on the successful way in which the County Councils were working, and which the County Councils were working, and what had been accomplished by them. He thought that the time had come when UlallV of the duties now performed by Parliament should be relegated to the County Council. (Hear, hear.) Parliament* as they knew, suffered from a plethora of work, and he did not see why purely oounty matters should not ba dealt with in the oounties. Surely they knew more of their" ownlaffalrs than members of Parliament did, and ho trusted that these matters would be remitted to them. The negotiations with regard to a revised schema of representation on the Joint Counties Asylum was then referred to and ex- plained, and thit occupation of the wards by the counties had been adopted as the basis instead of that of population. The Standing Joint Committee had also, in the provision of new police stations and police-courts, shown an earnest desire to make their courts as convenient as passible to the masses of the people. The Joint Education Committee had before them an im- portant scheme dealing with higher education in the county, and when the draft scheme was ready copies would be sent to each member, and amend- ments invited. Then it was proposed that a. special meeting of the Council should be held to consider the scheme and the amendments. The efforts made to secure a larger representation on the Gelhgaer Charity were also referred to and on the question of the Council's finances, the Chairman said it was hoped the Local Government Board would allow them to utilise some of the money received from Newport under the terms of the separation in the repayment of loans which were falling duo, otherwise a double burden would be imposed on the ratepayers. The useful work which the County Councils Association were engaged on were also glanced at, including the audit of County Council accounts, the prevention of the pollution of rivers and of floods, and the grouping of districts for the establishment of infectious hospitals. RAILWAY KATES IN MONMOUTHSHIRE. Alderman Vaughan brought up a report of the I Railway Rates Committee, and said that at the meeting in Eebruary the committee had before them complaints by gentlemen residing in the county of the monstrous anomalies in connec- tion with railway rates. Two of the most extravagant charges were that the charge for the carriage of coke from Newport to Pandy had been increased from 3s 7d to 6s 3d; and that of petroleum from Cardiff to Newport from 43 3d to 10s 4d. The Committee placed itself in com- munication with the railway company, with the result that the charges had been put back to the I old amount. The rates for agricultural produce were to be put back to the oid scale: but; traffic coming from a distance, such as from Liverpool to Newport, had been raised from 15s to 19s, and from Shropshire a"d Cheshire from 10s 6d to 12s and lis. The Committee intended to hold further meetings, and asked the Council to adopt. a resolution for the purpose of strengthening their hands. The resolution he had drafted was as follows That this coun- cil deprecates the serious increase in railway ra.tes during a time of severe agricultural and commer- cial depression, more particularly as assurances were given by the railway companies that no inc"ease was contemplated by them, and the Council ventures to express the hope that the various railway systems in this country wiH give effect to those assurances. '—Alderman Horns seconded the motion.—General Gi.lespie said tnat the rate for the small truck of cattle nad been increased cent, p-r cent. and Mr H. \Vd said that the profits of the mad farmer and sma.i trader had been wiped out by the moreaseu rates. —The motion was carried, and tne Chairman promised that the point as to small cattle tiucks I should receive attention. DRAINAGE OF THE HILT, DISTRICTS. The Clerk reported that an informal conference of Local Boards in the Monmouthshire Hibs had been held as to providing a drainage schema, atic read an application from the Clerk to the iiisca Local Board for etching of pians of a scoeme of drainage whjc;h bad been prepared by the Oouncii s surveyor.—Alderman Harris thought the Kisca folk ought to put their own house in ol*der beiore asking other districts to do so, and Mr Harrison spoke against a large expenditure on orainage, as at Ebbw Vale a. dry-earth system had recently been introduced. He thought the drainage ques- tion might be shelved for ten years.—Mr Jacob said that typhoid was rife at Risca, and that the Ebbw and the Afon Llwyd were polluted by Tredegar, Abertiliery, Nantyglo, and other places higher up the valleys. Sooner or later something must be done.—The Chairman said that Dr Mulligan, in his report two years ago, relied upon tlie advances of science in coming to the aid of the Council.—Dr Mulligan thought that the drainage scheme was a special pet of Mr Jacob, and pointed out how costly it would be, because drainage and storm water would have to be dealt with separately, ulti- matelyan amendment by Mr Phillips was with- drawn, and the motion was agreed to. THE BALLOT AT ALL ELECTIONS. Councillor Howe, in accordance with notice, proposed a resolution that in the opmion of the Council ail elections should be conducted by bal- lot.—The motion was carried by 34- to 6 votes and copies of the resolution were agreed to be for- warded to the President of the Local Govern- ment Board and the members of Parliament for the county and boroughs. A VERY LARGE ORDER FOR AGRICULTURE. Councillor Walters moved the foliowing:— "That in the opinion of this Council the present condition of agriculture, especially in Waies and Monmouthshire, calls for a Laid 33iil which would include fixity of tenure, fair rents, destruc- tion of giimp, compensation for improvements, and a land court."—Alderman Harris :3ccondeù the motion.—On a division there appeared 16 for the motion and 11 against. Copies of the resolution were ordered to be forwarded to the Prime Minister, Mr T. Eiiis, M.P., and the members for the county and boroughs. The Coancil sut four hours.
COMPULSORY VACCINATION AT CARDIFF. Two or three cases in which persons were sum- moned for non-compliance with the Compulsory Vaccination Act were heard on Wednesday at the Cardiff borough police-court—before the Stipendary Magistrate and Mr Councillor E. Bevan.—In one case William D. Phillips, living In Canton, appeared in answer to a summons for neglecting to have his child vaccinated, the absence of inoculation being proved by Dr Evans. Defendant did not deny the offence, but sought to impute ulterior motives against both the medical examiner and the vaccination officer.— The Stipendiary severely reprimanded him for making this assertion, and ordered him to have the child vaccinated within 14 days.
THE PEMBROKESHIRE HUNT. I The question of hunting the north side of the county of Pembroke has now been definitely settled for the next, season. In consideration of a subscription of £55D being raised, Mr T. Lort Philipps agreed to continue to occupy the post of Master so far as this side of the water is concerned. The kennels will be sold, and a sum of £100 already offered will be accepted.
CHARGE AGAINST A BOLTON AUCTIONEER. At Pontypridd Police-court, on Wednesday— before Mr Gordon Lenox and Mr Ed.

Coles, butcher, Porch, with "whom he had lodged. Mr Belcher, of Cardiff, defended, and Superintendent Jones prosecuted for the police.—Prisouer was committed for trial at the Glamorganshire Assizes.

LOCAL SPORTING NOTIONS. LEY" OLD STAGER."] The close fight made by Ireland last Saturday has had the effect, not fierbaps to be unexpected, of inducing English and Scottish critics, who were previously half inclined to accept the four three-quarter game, to cry as-you-were. They now, going back on easier ltterance, ten us that the superiority of the Welsh game has not been proved. To that one might retort that it has not been disproved, seeing that Wales has won all three International engagements. But let us examine more closely the arguments of our friends across the border, over the Channel, and up North. Summed I1p, they work out in this wise :—(1) The duty of forwards is to carry the scrummages. (2) Nine forwards should do this easier than eight. (3) The best backs are useless behind beaten forwards. (4) And. there- fore, the system of playing nine forwards is the best. All this sounds very logical, but what are the lessons taught us in Wales by experience ? We have found that it is not necessary for forwards to carry the scrummages that a better scoring game is to hold up just long enough to be able to heel out to the halves; that eight clever for- wards, carefully selected and knowing each other's play should be able to do this, and, as we have proved, can do it. And then, going on, we maintain that halves into whose hands the ball is heeled, not being so hard put to it to get the ball as halves who have to rely mainly on their own efforts, are m a better position to feed the three-quarters, and that, both for offensive and defensive purposes, the space between the touch- lines is better covered by four three-quarters than three. Now how did the respective arguments work out last Saturday if At Llanelly we had the Irish forwards carrying the scrums as against feeding (that is to say, heeling out to) their halves, but their rushes were futile against the strong line of defence presented by four three-quarters, and so they were unable to score. On the other hand, the'Welsh eight, although beaten on the whole, managed frequently to feed the halves, and the latter to turn the ball out to the three-quarters. The inability of the quartette to take advantage of their opportunities was due not to any inherent defect in the system, but to the breakdown of Arthur Gould, one of the centres, owing to his damaged shoulder. One chance, however, was taken, and the good understanding between halves and three-quarters that must come from the four three-quartor game won Wales the match. In short, although the Irish forwards carried the scrums, they lost the match. and the Welsh halves, although behind beaten forwards in the sense understood in. England, prevented scoring on the part of their opponents, and managed to score themselves. No, my friends the English critics, you can't get much to support your contention out of Saturday's match. But why should the four three-quarter game have to stand or fall on International matches ? Why are club games to be ignored ? Let us take the matches played by Welsh teams against the best English clubs since and including Hancock's (Jardifi team, which perfected the system, and we find at least five out of}he six matches not only won, but won easily. Where in England such scores piled up against the teams we have beaten as are put on down here 1 And just one more query, Why do English teams, Blaekhc-ath among then;, almost invariably play four three-quarters when they meet a Welsh team ? The absence of enthusiasm displayed at Llanelly lifts been the theme of much conversation during the week, and many and varied are the explana- tions put forward to account for 1t. It is now said that the comparatively small representation in the Welsh team of Swansea and Llanelly did much to rob the game ef local interest, but I can scarcely accept that as pro- bable, and shall stick to the view I held on Monday, that it was the disappointment most of the crowd felt at seeing Wales pushed so hard when a big victory was anticipated that muffled the lungs of the crowd. Anyhow, the poor reception accorded the victors had a disheartening effect on the winners, if I am to accept what a member of the Welsh Union Committee tells me. He travelled back with the men after the dinner, and says they were about as down in the mouth as though they had lost. The name of Edwards, tha Irish three-quarter who played so wall at Dublin last year, figured largely, I notice, in the report of the game given by a con temporary. Fiotn this I assume that Edwards, like the bird of his distinguished ftllow-country- man, Sir Boyle Rohe, enjoys the rare advantage of being able to be in two places at ones. Any- how, he was seen in Dublin on Saturday at about the same time our contemporary's man was de- scribing his achievements at Llanelly. Mr W. Wilkins, I should imagine, was not responsible for the appearance in the newspapers of a paragraph contrasting the difference between the expenditure in preparing the ground at Llanelly aud the outlay incurred at Car- diff. 'The comparison was particularly odious and unfair. At Cardiff, owing to the frost, straw had to be laid down, and quite a small army of men engaged for days fighting the weather, to say nothing of the heavy out- by necessitated by laying down and maintaining the fires which, rightly or wrongly, are held responsible for getting the match off. In the CRS-e of the Llanelly match, no such expenditure was necessary, the weather being all that could be desired, hence the difference in the expense. Apropos of the foregoing, I hear that since the presentation of the little bill of exes from Cardiff, Western members of the Committee have been doing a little growling. Why. I fail to see. You have your cake and eat it, and if they want to spend their money, they should have asked for a postponement of the match. As it was, they persisted in going on, well-knowing what going on meant, and to whine about the bill now is as childish as it is contemptible. It has been persistently rumoured in Cardiff since Sunday that Arthur Gould will stand out of the Cardiff and Newport match next Saturday, his shoulder being too painful to permit of his playing. Well, I would advise supporters of Cardiff not to accept rumour as correct until we have some definite assurance on the subject. I have heard another rumour to the effect that rumour number one was set afloat by the betting- fraternity for betting purposes. My advice, therefore, is to wait and see. Some comment was excited, it is whispered, over the absence from the International dinner of a recently-resigned member cf the Welsh Com- mittee. Surely, it cannot be true as stated, that tins gentleman was not invited. The Welsh Union are not short of funds, and the committee would scarcely be mqftn enough to study the price of a paltry dinner invitation to an old colleague and one ot the founders of theUnion. Pontypridd gave Cardiff yesterday a much better game than th score indicated, though the play was not really good. With a strong wind in their favour, the home forwards completely beat their lighter opponents, and fed the backs in fine style. As the game wore on it was evident that they were not going to be allowed to do as they liked. The visiting pack consisted of eight hard workers, and with a little tuition they be hard to beat. Once the hall was well in the open, however, the game was all in Cardiff's favour, the visiting backs lacking in attack, and being utterly unable to check the smart, short passing. While they lacked in attack they exhibited ster- ling saving powers, plucky fielding of the ball characterising the whole of the Ken behind the scrimmage. For Pontypridd Tom Murray, Stead, and HCIlIsworth were the best of the pack. Harry Williams was the best of the halves, and Green and Ben Lewis the pick of the three-quarters. Alun Morgan hesitated at the critical moment, and one cannot help thinking that he is out ot his place at three-quarter. Ewens, who played vice Gay at full back, did well on the whole. TiieJCaruiu team.it appeared to me, playel well within themselves in anticipation of the hard game, before thell,on Saturday. Certainly they will have to exhibit better form if they are to beat the redoubtable Usksiders. Hi 11. Lew; Cope, and the Davieses were oftenest to the fore among the forwards. Marshall played bard, and came through several scrummages-, but he needs a lot of coaching yet. Selwyn Biggs was the best half on the field. Taken ail round he did well. E, P. Biggs was not an ideal custodian. The final round in connection with the medal competition of the South Wales Association Football League takes i>lace on Saturday next, when Cardiff will meet their old rivals Mountain Ash on the Tvnycoed Field, off Albany-road, Roath. A closely contested and interesting game is looked forward to. The Taff Amateur Rowing Ciub held their annual meeting at the Corporation Hotel, Canton, on Tuesday evening, Mr E. J. Cross presiding over a "large attendance. The election of officers for the ensuing year resulted, as follows ;—Presi- dent, Lord Windsor vice-presidents. Mr Richard Sleej), Capt. Powley, and Mr V. Robinson captain, Mr W.Matthews; vice-captain, Mr A. Bryant; secretary and treasurer, Mr A. Kalten- bach, Caroline-street, from whom all information in connection with the club can he obtained. The retiring officers were heartily thanked for then- past services, and the meeting afterwards ter- minated.

STRANGE SUPERSTITION. A strange case of supersitition has just come before the Town Council of Frankfort-on-the Main. It appears that with consent of the magis- trate, No. 13 in several streets of the town has i been omitted at the request of the proprietors. They say that people refused to rent apartments in houses bearing this number.

Pensioner and Mina were each hacked at 1500 to 200, while at 3 to 1 Wolf's Crag was supported to win about £ 2,000. The chief bets abont angway were 3,000 to 180,but Marcion was only occasionally supp-,u\€oi. After taking 2,000 to 80. Weymouth's backers would have gt-nc on, w hile l,t00 to 40 was accepted about each of Macreadv and Sabra, and at 33 to 1 Victor Wilde was supported to win about £ 5,000, the price being freely asked for.

Rumour has it that Oinie lias met with another misfortune, having broken three of his front teeth on his manger. On Monday, over the private course of the Tootinpr Bee Golf Club, a fine feat was achieved by Mr ZoeLc, who went round in 77, viz., 42 out and 35 in Cheroot, engaged in the Grand National, has I latterly been under the care 05 W. Walters at Pimperne. The horse had a nice four mile gailop over the fSandown-park track on Friday evening last, going wonderfully well. He will be ridden in the big race by Gree'or. Buffalo is the latest American city to seek notoriety in connection with glove fights. The sporting inhabitants want Corbett and Mitchell to box there in the exhibition budding, and have decided to enter the bidding for tile match with an oifer of $40,000, extending to a limit of $75,000. Hind hunting commenced with the -)evon and Somerset in most favourable weather, and large fields were out three times last week. The open- ing meet was at Crowcombe Park, by invitation of Mr II. C. Trollop?, an enthusiastic supporter of the hunt. It was marred by all unfortunate incident. After Captain Bowerman had dis- mounted, his horse lost ccntrol, and, jumping into the en" was drowned. Both Wednesday and Friday the weather was nimpiy manificent; so J lar there lisls been no such Maveb for years. Deer have wintered well, and are plentiful. I The following are the names and ages of the team that have set sail for England --A. C. Bannerman, 34 J. M. Blackham, 57: William Brace, 29; George Giffen, 35; W. F. Giffen. 28 H. Graham, 25 S. E. Gregory, 23: A. H. .larvis, 33; J. Lyons, 30 R. W. M'Leod, 25 Harry Trott, 27 Hugh Tremble, 26 C. T. B. Turner, 30. Tho tallest man in the team is Hugh Trurnbie, 6ft. 3'in., and the most diminutive as well as the youngest is S. E. Gregory, who rears his noble form of 5ft. 4in. into the air. Capt. Coe," in the Star, has been caught napping. In a recent paragraph he stated that "Golden Link wiil probably be ridden in the Grand National by Kavanagh, and she must have come on marvellously since, the property of Mr R. A. Barley, she followed his stagiiounds and ran in the little hunt races round Bury St. Edmunds." As a matter of fact, the Grand National candidate is altogether a different animal. The Golden Lmk mentioned by "Capt. Cae" is an aged chestnut gelding by Fetterlock out of Adela, while the one that now figures in the Grand National is n, six-year-old son of Cylinder and Queen of Kildare: trained at the Curragii.and who lias not been out in public since a four-year-old. at Arundel, the quartette of horses under the charge of Andrews, engaged in the Lin- colnshire Handicap, namely, Victor Wild, Wor- cester, Link Boy, and Admiral Benbow, were galloped over a mile at racing pace with Bar- mecide. in the presence of their respective owners, viz., Mr W orton. Mr Best. Sir C. Hartopp, and Mr Burton. At Newmarket, Percy Peck, in the presence of his father, stripped Gangway (P. Chaloner up), Prince Hampton (J. Woodburn riding), Golden Garter (AlLsopp up), and Bomb- shell, and sent them at their best pace seven fur- longs. Victor Wild finished first in the Arundel trial, and Gangway came out best in ) Ir J. B. Maple trial. It wi! ho.vever, be seen that Mac r .jady did not take part in the spin.
E r-Ji1" FOOTBALLT" CARDIFF V PONTYPRIDD. Piayed on the Cardiff Arms Park on Wednesday m. cold weather, and watched by a fairly large ge crowd. Ewens substituted Gay at full-back for Pontypridd, E. P. Biggs acting as Cardiff's cus- todian, vice D, W. Evans, and Marshall taking1 Cravos's place in the pack. The io'lowing were the teams :—Ponty- pridd—Lack, J. Ewens; three quarters, B Lewis, Aluu Morgan, T. Greer., J. Murray half-backs, H. Williams, Lewis forward?, Ack Llewellin, H. i-teari, T. I-Jeinsworth, T. Murray, J. ^ilkins, P. Deve.oaux, W. Parkins, T. Bryant, Cardi ff: Back, E. P. Biggs; three-quarter i backs, T. W. Pearson (captain), D. Fitzgerald, J. E. Elliott, and Norman Biggs half backs. R. B. Sweet-Eseott and S. Biggs forwards, A. F. Hill, A. Lewis, J. Burke, It. Guinea, W. Davies. W._ Cope, 11. Davies, atid^ J. H. Marshall'. Referee Mr T. C. Graham, Newport. Ack Llewellyn opened the play at 15 minutes past 5. The Cardiff custodian failed to return, the ball landing into touch over the cei)tre-line. Getting- the better of a scrummage which followed the lin-ont, the visiting forwards rushed far into Cardiff territory. Then Ben Lewis secured from a scrummage in the home 25 and passed to Harry Williams, who, having covered a few yards, trans- ferred toAlun Morgan. Being stopped by Norman Morgan threw back to Lewis, who kicked to the line. Soon afterwards Cardiff obtained a free kick. Norrnan Bigrgs kicked high, and ran straight, so putting Pearson on side. The Cardiff captain took the ball admirably, and dodging G, f-t-ii scored in the corner. Norman Biggs lmtcle a good but unsuccessful effort to convert. Within two minutes after the drop-out, after passing initiated by Selwyn Biggs, and in which Escott, Fitz- gerald, and Norman Biggs took part. tlie Cardiff international three-quarter scored his 100th try of the season, the same player failing to improve upon the point, which was made in the far corner. Cardiff's forwards never gave their opponents a chance, tlie ball being heeled out to Biggs, who worked the scrums capitally. He was, however, not allowed to pass out as fre- quently as lie could have done owing to the off- side tactics of the visiting halves. A long kick by Pearson registered a minor, aud more passing, m which Elliott distinguished himself, ended in Nor- man Biggs running to the line. When tackled by B. Lewis and Ewens. Biggs passed to Fitzgerald, late St David's centre, making no mistake, and scoring 1ll so good It position that Norman Bigg-s was able to plant the first goal. The restart was followed by more even play, there being a ten dency on the part of the homesters to hoid their opponents too cheaply. Ftom a long kick by Iiatry Williams E. P. Biggs failed to fie'd the ball, and fortunate opponents too cheaply. Ftom a long kick by Iiatry Williams E. P. Biggs failed to field the baD. and fortunate was it that Pearson's speed enabled him to twist the ball into touch before the visiting forwards in a body could get at it. As it was, play was changed into close proximity to the goal-line, and after a series of tisrht scrums Deverenx forced his way over. Alun Morgan failed with an easy kick, Cardiff asserted its superiority on the resumption, and a series of pretty passes, started by Selwyn Biggs, was the means of removing play to the 0' visitors' territory, Ewens being called upoa to save on several occasions. Real hard work bv the scrumma ers, among whom Tom Murrav and Harry Stead were prominent, sent play "to the other part of the field, and Cardiff's posItion was hotly raided, though the backs failed to take advantage of the chances given to them by tfc*ir front contingent. This might have been accounted for by the strength of the wind, which • blew in gusts. However, weak as they were in attack, the ^Pontypridd backs were strong in defence, and prevented the CardiSians getting their lines clear, Harry Williams at half and Ben Lewis among the Quartette doing yeo- man service. A narrow squeak for a try from a forward rush by Pontypridd was lost by L. P. Biggs turning the ball into touch. HALF-TIME SCORE: G. T. M. CAKDU-T 1 2 1 PONTYPRIDD 0 1 0 On re-starting Cardiff's forwards exhibited great dash. The ball was worked right up to the goal- line, but by dint of hard forward work, aided by the dribbling of Harry Williams and the long kicking or Green, the venue was changed to Cardiit's quarters, where play was kept for so lour, that, had the visiting three-quarters been scorers, thc-y must have crossed the goal-line. Showing more combination forward the Metro- politans heeled out better, and the haU once among the backs ground was invariably gained. Norman Biggs lost a fine opening through failing to hold the ball thrown his way by Fitzgerald and another after magnificent passing, in which all the other backs handled owing to Fitzgerald transferring too low and forward. Then after the ball bad been cleverly thrown out by Selwyn Biggs, Norman got well away, but his progress being likely to be barred by Evans after he had rounded tlie opposing three-quarters, he trans- ferred to Hill. The burly forward threw judi- ciously to one of the Davieses, who parted adroitly to Fitzgerald, the old-time full back being collared on the line. Almost immediately afterwards Elliott secured, and gained a grand try, which, however, was left unimproved. With the kick-out the Pontypridd ians, nothing daunted, worked with a will, and soon the scene of operations was in Cardiff's 25 and Bryant missed a ridiculously easy chance of scoring. Pontypridd sitcceeded in keeping Cardiff strictly on the defensive for over ten minutes, another apparently easy chance of scoring being lost by Alun Morgan, who passed wildly behmd when he should have gone straight and for ail he was worth. The ball fell to Pear- son, who relieved the position by kicking. It was now only about- five minutes from time. Plav was stopped, but not for long, owing to slight injury sustained by one of the visiting halves. After rushing, followed by a neat dribble by Harry Williams, Cardiff's 25 was once more the venue, and, getting a pass, Aluu Morgan had decidedly bard lines in not scoring, as he was brought down on the line by Norman Biggs. The home players had only just managed to work out of immediate danger when Cardiff were penalised tor an infringement of the off-side ruie. Alun Morgan had the ball placed in a fairly good position, but his kick fell short. Coming through a, scrum on the 25 line, R. Davies made a strong run, and then passed to EIJiott, who transferred to Pearson, and play was chang-ed in an incredibly short space of time to the visitors' 25. Here several of the players came near to .scoring, N. Biggs eventually scoring a try, which he converted just on call of No side." FINAL SCORE G. T. M. CARDIFF 2 3 1 Po.VTTPP.IDD 0 10 T LANCASHIRE v.
