.à>. LLANRWST COUNTY SCHOOL. ANNUAL PRIZE DISTRIBUTION. ADDRESS BY THE REV. HARTWELL JONES, M.A. The popularity of the annual prize distribu- tion and entertainment given by the pupils of the LAanrwst County School is increasing year by year, as shown by tho crowded attendance at the Cinrrch House to-day week- Tlie room ■was crowded to its utmost capacity when Mr John Roberta, J P of I'cntrevoclas, the chair- main of the Local Governors, presided, and he supported by the Rev. G. Jiaxtwcu Joncti, ]U.A., A utiie-d, Surrey, and the headmaster (the Rev- J. J. Farr). HEADMASTER'S REPOICI. The Ilea-ciir-.ister (the J. J. Farr), in a verbal report, said that the school was in a very satisfactory position, and he was glad to find that there wore more pupils from the outer districts. That was the case, especially witn girls. There was a little improvement in tno length of tinio pupils woie allowed to remain tn the school- The attendance oi the scholars m-aa very good. there being twelve who had made per.eet attendance- 'i'key had pupil* at the English and Welsh Universities, and ail v> <iie doing well Tlhere was a greet difference be- twee 11 teaching and ciiicating pupiLs- It had been suggested to form an oid pupils association and he was glau to find that the girls wore taking a lead in this matter- This would bo a very good thing botih for the oid pupils and the eohool- For his own part he would do anything to assist them- He should like to throw cut the suggestion that when a pupil Idt home, ho aliculd leave his address be- hind to thu.t it could be icg-istured by him. lie was afraid that the oLd pupils did not realise how much his intent was in cnem after they left.

He was sure ttiey all dee-ply eympatiuiied with him- Ho had now pJcasttrQ- in calling upon the Rev. G. Hartwell Joncis to adtlress the 11 feting (cheers)- EDUCATIONAL EVOLUTION. In hid addrerii, the Rev. Hartwell Jones said tie felt it a great hoaoux to be invited to distri- bute* tho prizes. The Chairman, had aseo'ciaucd Lis nairne with IJanrwst- He was perfectly right- Ho (tlhe spe&ke-r) recoJiected several iam- cus names which wore aoiiHer.oM words not caiy in the Vale of Cotnvay, but from ^aergyoi to Caerdydd. Llaju-wb-t was cloacly oonneoted with the great Salisbury s who rendered a great sai vioo to the MotliCr Country. in translatuig and disseminating the Bible. Men could hardly avoid being a pootioal or literary genius when brought up in such historical eurri>jridings and pubLnno eocnery as there wae around Llanrwst He (the speaker) also recollected the name of Iouan Glan Geirionydti', with whom he claimed family coninwotion. T'he speaker went on to state that the fresh lease ol life imparted to the old Crammar I;oix)do by engrafting on them. talie iutormediate Schools was typical of the educational evolution through which Wales had passed- It was inevitable in bho transition stage tinat susceptibilities should be wounded and per- haps some mistakes were made. The odd Gram- mtLT Schools reptrescnted a different ideal, and' were lineal dcscemdnnts of the monastic and cathedral schools ol the days before the Rc- formation- Ikelr prevailing character was literary and the classics were the chief vehicle of irrebnwtion., In shc-rt, they furiiiahdd a Lilierad education in the sense attached to t-he term at that day, which aimed at the iuiEest development of the i.udi\ itiVial powers. THe proper study of mankind wan man. But now ovon tho great public scltcols, strongholds of the old learning-, had aoconinioclated themselves t,) meet too exigences of tlie modorn spirit and the Lips auid sc.-i"j;i<jns 0: the Edinburgh re- viewers airbd other candid critics- There were several of tho old' foundations in Wales. He (the speaker) was (tispct-AA to think that their constitution was aiteired too rudely and hastily; >me cf them could veil have been left as centres, whoio the lamp 0: the o.Ù classical learning might he kept burning. But utihtiir- ianipm loudly asserted irself, demanding studies Wiiic.i would britg profit and issue in some de- finite work that oould bo weighed' and mea- sured- Under theaO auspices. moden-n science strode into the field and im-peirioualy demanded elbow-room. The claims of tine two rivals were now being satisfactorily adjusted- In Waies. owing- to racial characteristics, the balante wxiuld probably be in favour ol the older cul- ture. But it was idle to suppose that the eld fcxuuiiatiorcs alone could have sufficed to meet th/2 wants of the new age (hear, hear)- "FREE TRADE IN EDUCATION." There was a kindred topic of higth in- terest in Wales- Tile modern educational ideal followed the lines laid dbwn by Nature. "The system of Gcywxnmc-jit," said Napoleon, "must be adapted to the spirit of the nation." So. too, with education- Different ooumtiries called for different methods- The systems of same continental countries were storootypod stiff. In Great Britain greater scope had hitherto be-em otfo to tho individual and looal enterprise, in other words, Free Trade was cultivated in matteiis rducational. They emsured uniformity; we o:couraged multiplici- ty- This principle was surely in haj-mony with the genius of the Welsh race; we did not want to be run in one mould. They did' not want to be broken into one cast-iron system, so that the great function that thcfcX) secondary schools wouiki have to fulfil iti the fut-uro would be to discovor Welsh genius wherever it might be found in the mountains and valleys of Wales- There were people who affectem to believe that tluerc was no difference between Scotchman. Welshman or n. Unquestionably, it was to the advajitage of a complex Empire, like ours, to call into exercise the special gifts and domi- nant qualities of the component elements. But that was a very different thing from encouraging particularism or proviuciadini- The widest outlook was compatible with t.ho keenest patriot ism. Sentiment was a pcculiax property of the Welsh people, and tins great wise men of old' said that sentiment ruled the world. They were Welshmen and Welsh women, and they had sentiiixmt. His advice was "Go and rule the world." They had in Walet. at the present day a system of education, taken altogether, which could not be surpassed' by but very few coun- tries on the Continent. FUNCTION OF INTERMEDIATE SCHOOLS. The Intermediate Sohools had a special placo to fill and function to discharge, as feeders or cnannels Leading to the Umvo.'aity Colleges and the National University. The remarkable suc- cess attained by some County Schools at the olden* Universities was as yet exceptional There were few countries in Europe which were bet- ter equipped educationally, and the system has begun to teU on the national life of Wales. The intellectual eminence of Scotland was due to tLo patriotism of the far-sighted founders of the Scottish Universities who realised that the valuable assets of a nation were its youth- 'l¡h institutions were within the reach of ail- In Wales abundance of talent had, for want of an outlet, lain undeveloped, unelicited. or un- discovered. Concluding-, the speaker axngratulated the successful pupils, and said that the advantage whidh were now to be obtained were being used to the full- He was glad to find that the girls in Llanrwst were ahle to hold their own. Re- member you are Weish bo}s and Welsh girls (applause). Soo that you are not degenerate deeoendante o! those great Welsh worthies who had the education of Wales at lie art. Hand dowit those traditions of our country untarnished and undiminished to future generations, and uphold the oi*} Welsh motto and carry forward the old Welsh banner "Better knowledge than riches," "GweU dytsg na golud" (loud applause). A hearty vote of thanks was nooorded the speaker for his excellent adidrcep on the pro- position of the Chairman, and seconded by the Headmaster, to which Mr Hajtwell Jones briefly responded. MUSICAL PROGRAMME. The entertainment part of the programme was vary much appreciated by the audience. The first item was an action sonz entitJed "Caller Herrrin," bv a number of girls, followed by a play entitled "Ffynon Giraspi-" Grassi was supposed to be in charge of the fairy well at LlangybL and as she forgot to cover the well one evening the water flowed away to form Glasfryn Lake. Miss Meta Williams wasGrassi and during the performance she sang a num- ber of Welsh airs very effectively. Other characters represented N~ Meredid a<nd Eihan fairies), Katie Williams and Matigo Jenkins; villago girls. Edith Berry and Annie Jones; old! village woman. Annie C. IXivies. Other fairies included Ellen Mary Jones Nora Jones, Daisy Owen, Gwyneth Roberts, Gwandobne WTil- liams, airuj Dii-,713 Williams. Anothar play per- fornAl by t.he girls was "Their new paying guest," which was full of mirth. Tluzabotli Hughes made an excellent nervous widow alfd Annio Pierce J-oncf* and Loiusa Jane Bairnell wdl sustained t.heir parts as daughters- Saran I' !<>r- enca Roberts acted weil a6 MitE iHardoastle, t J paying guost. Ilho lifo and soul of the piece was Gwyneth lioborts who acted as the maid- The last farce was also very laughable, in this case four of the boys taking part- Tho piece was entitled "Poisoned." and the charac- ters were verv well sustained by the following Mr Montague Mivir.e (a young man withf ex- pectations), John Glyn Jones; Tom (Jack Oi all trader* to Mivins), Alun Rawson Williams; Mrs Priggit (a laundress), Launcelot Owen; Mr CThas Brown (V>rot:ieir to Mivins betrothed), Joseph Glynne Hikghos Miss Holt and Mr H. H. Jones are to be highly congratulated upon the excellent training given the children for the production of these picoes- The entertainment terminated with the singiriz of tlie Welsa and Englifh Natio-nal Anthems.
THE PRIZE WINNERS. The Christmas show at Conway organised by the Market and Fairs Committee of the Con way Town Council is annually looked forward, to with considerable interest, and has done much in the -.1 I 11 past to augment the Christmas trade in me ancient borough. Encouraged by the Council, the tradesmen vie with each other in the dis- play of their wares in the most attractive man- ner. d This year's illow eclipsed all its prcdcccssors both in the quantity and the quality of the entries. The main feature of this year's show, lAj-ya-u,,j Mi.>k others, has been the better light- the borough. Hoth in the At the first day's show, en Friday, a healthy spirit of keen competition prevailed throughout the whole borough, and although the judges in many cases had groat difficulty in deciding on tho order of merit, it is satisfactory to noto that they were unanimous in their decisions. The judges at Friday's ehow were Councillors A. J. Oldman, Fred. Jones, and Mr Llewelyn Jones, chemist, who were ably assisted by Mr John Hughes, the energetic secretary of the show. CLOTHING OUTFITTING AND DRAPERY. In the class for clothing, outfitting and drapery the first prize was awarded to Mr J. E. Conway Jones, Stanley Buildings, Conway, whoso windows were well stocked with a choice selec- tion c-f Scotch, Welsh and West of England suitings, with umbrellas and gloves tastefully displayed. Another well dressed window was weil stocked with gent's mercery and evening drefs requisites. Mr J. P. Griffiths, Regent Houtie, came a good second with a splendid stock of homo manufactured goods, including shawls, shirtings, drefs materials, travelling rugs, etc., aJ] of pure Welsh manufacture, and being a patriot, Mr Griffith displays a card in his window oilling attention to the home-made goods and bearing tho well-known Weish pro- verb, "Cas gwr na charo'r wlad a'i maoco" ("Hated is the man that lovcth not the land of his adoption"). Other awards in this class were Mr David Griffiths, Deganwy, very highly commended; Mr J. II. Jones, Stanley Buildings, highly oommended; and Miss Thomas, High- street, commended. GROCERY AND GREENGROCERY. In this ("life Messrs E. B. Jones and Co., Caade-streoet, Conway, of which Mr HcrhArt. Jones is the resident manager, came a good first, with a epiendid show of Christmas fruite, bacon, hams, a large quantity of prize Cheshire cheese imported from Woodly Ilall, Cheshire. They also had a fino display cf Kiel and Irish butters, as well as their famous "bara brith," I n" which occupied a prominent position in their well stocked windows. The windows of this establishment were dressed by Mr Edward Jones, who was awarded the first prize of a diploma and gold medal for window dressing at the Manchester grocery exhibition last year. The second prize went to Messrs H. and J. Owen, Deganwy; Mr E. Jones, Caogron Shop, was very highly commended; Mr William Row- lands, Bangor-road, highly commended; and Miss Thomas, High-street, commended. MEAT PURVEYORS. The judges had but little difficulty in deter- mining the first prize winner in the butchers' class. The onterprising young tradesman, Mr J. T. Joncs, EaglŒ Buildings, Castie-street, proved an eaey first with one of the best arranged displays seen in the district for many years. His stock consisted of such rare novelties as two lambe eight weeks old, fed by Lord Penrhyn; one krnb nine weeks old, fed by Mrs Williams, Bryndowsi, Conway; eight bullocks and heifero, being first prize winners at Taiy- cafn Mart sale; five fat wethers, first prize winners at Llangefni Smithfield 40 fat wethers, second prize winners at Talvoafn Mart; nine farm pib", as well as a choice supply of home- fed turkeys, geeso, and ducks. The second prize was awarded to Mr Thomas Foulkes, lligh- streot, who also had an excellent show of beef and mutton, as well as a. choice selection c-f turkeys, goeee, ducks, etc. Mr D. Owen, Ban- gor-road, was highly commended. FANCY GOODS AND JEWELLERY. Mrs Jones, Castle-street, won distinction and the first prize in this class with two well stocked and tastefully arranged windows of jewellery and fancy goods; also a large selection of dolls, toyi-, etc., suitable for Christmas pre- sents. Messrs Lancaster and Co., De-ganvvy, made agcod second with a choico dirplay oÍ various articks suitable for Christmas gifts. Mr T. Parry, Bangor-road, was very highly oom- mended. MISCELLANEOUS TRADES. Class V. was open to ail other trades not enumerated in the above, and was probably the most difficult to judge. It is to be hoped that the Conway Corporation will after the ex- perience gained this year be able to arrange for further classes upon a future occasion. Under the circumstances the judges arrived at the best decision possible in awarding the first pkrize to Mr Enoch Hughes, poulterer, Deganwy, and the second to Mr J. W. Owen, .painter and de- corator, Deganwy. MÍfficr> M. and J. Williams, drapers, High-stroot, were very (highly oomI- nieoided; Mr H. Breeze, poulterer, High-street, highly commended; and Mr Joseph Jones, boot and shoe maker, Castle-street, commended. Other notable displays in this clats wore those of Mr John Lloyd, tailor, Lancaster-square; Mr J. T. Williams, fruiteror; Mrs Jones, Windsor House; Mrs J. Roberts, Emu Restaurant; Mr D. J. Walker, tobacooniet; Mr T. A. Jones, Waverley Cafe, Deganwy, etc.

What brings me out of my own diucese and to Blaenau Festimog, of all places in tho world? I am here with Llic permission and approval of my valued friend your diocesan. There are few plaecs ill Wales which 1 have not at some time or other visited. This is mv first visit to Blat-naii Festiniog. But the attractions of Blaenau Festiniyg I did not bring me here to-day. Fifty years ago my fathe- was Vicar of Llangollen. Old people at Llan- gollen will still tell you lii.s character. He was a" father to be proud of. Now he took the greatest pride in his national school, and I well remember the in- tcre.st with which he and his family awaited the ar- rival of a new head mistress. She stayed the night at the Vicarage, and the next morning my father took her to see the school. I, as a little boy, was allowed, to carry the keys. I reuiember watching her ftlee as- she went over the school. I thought it a grand room, but I dare say the Merionethshire County Council would not say so. She worked away at tliat school, and her pupils did credit to the school and to Llan- gollen. This head mistress was Miss Qunmow, the stepmother of your present head master, and this old tie of the past determined me to couie here to-day. But the difficulty remained. What am I to speak about? "Speak about the slates, of which you will find the best in the world at Blaenau Festiniog." Yes, but. if I speak about slates I may say something about France and Newfoundland, and I shall be in the middle of tariff reform before I know where I am. Then 4 thought of e(lucation-a very dangerous sub- JM.. Well, our old friend the weather is still left. Then I remembered that the weather at SL Asaph is different from the weather at Festiniog, and a friend I met said to me, "How (,Id it is to-dav "I while I was just thinking how warm it was. There are therefore, not only different kinds of weather, but different opinions about tho same weather. This is "a neutral platform," and therefore I must not speak about the weather. But there is one subject iw i i^P^n wllich a" are agreed. "Speak about tho Welsh Central Board, because everybody seems against it. But I won't do that, because I don't like being hard up:on those who are down in the world. After this I thought I .d choose my "wu IIV1>- je(--t. I picture myself with my family living at Blaenau Festiniog, and I want, To do mv best as a parent for my bove and girls. As a parent I think of their education. Here I am reminded of La Bruyere's dictum. "For parents to hope evervthin from the good education they bestow on their children is an excess of wnfldeiiee, and it is an equally great mistake to expect nothing and to neglect it." I start with what I may call the local outlook. Blaenau Festiniog is a pJace of one industry, and the careers open to young people here are limited, and I understand from your head master that "the school chiefly serves the neighbourhood ly enabling the majority of its pupils to get out of it." For the few who are able to remain the education given here will not only make them quicker and more intelligent at their work, but will add t) their lives those pleasures and rrnncmcnts which training* and culture place e reach of all sections of the community. la' ls ^'Ie outlook for the majority- who must seek careers elsewhere? England and the* Britifh Empire off,-r a wide held for the capable and the courageous. In education how you learn is almost more important than what you learn. The training of the body and the mind to habits of order and alertness, of regula- t"d activity and accurate observation, under the con- trol of a will which has been built up and fashioned upon Christian principles, represents what I under- stand by the essentials of education. I am confident myself that whatever merit our great English piihlid schools hove lies less in what they teach the boy. than in what they make of tlietn-less. tliat is ta say, in what they do for learning than in what they do for character. The English public school boy can say, wherever he is, that he ia a citizen of no mean city when he has b n trained in a school where the stand ard of honour and character is high. FIRST I-LACE TO SUBJECTS OF UTILITY. When I come to the eubjects to be taught I think of a Welsh mountain farmer who sent me his boy to Llandovery with a letter, half Welsh, half English, in which he MpeciULd the subjects which the boy wa3 not to learn. There was little left that we could teach him, except how to oount and sell his father's sheep. In th»" days of keen competition I am afraid we must give a first place in the subjects taught to wilat,.i useful. Your boys and girls are going out into the great English world. The first key and entrance to a career in any country is to know the language of that country. The English language covers now a large portion of the globe. Clearly then the boys and girls must have a complete mastery of this language. They must be able to speak it and writ-e it with ease and correctness. Let me illustrate this. We do not like to hear a man preach in Wales with "llediaeth," and it is no gain to anybody to speak English with the wrong ac- cent. When I look back I always regret that I never had the opportunity of being thoroughly taught foreign languages. I would have parted with a good deal of my Latin in exchange for German. But what about the Welsh language? Many years ago went with a friend to the Methodist Chapel at Llan- gollen to hear a lecture on .Rowlands of Llangeitho. The lecturer, Kilsby Jones, was a Welshman with a touch of genius, coupled with the shrewdest common sense. He made his history as he went along, and his historical statements were Welsh cousins to the facts. Bue even Froude could not have made it more interesting. The farmeres and the farm servants from the neighbourhood were there. Turning suddenly to them, he said: "Now, boys, remember that Welsh is the barley bread language. If you want to eat white bread, learn English." Kilsby Jones was a Noncon- formist minister, a strong Liberal, and a Welsh nationalist, whose patriotism was based upon common sense and a keen observation of things as they are. One other subject I wish to mention is that of hygiene. When I was at school not much attention was given to the training a.nd health of the body. I particularly remember one master who not only closed I evry window in his crowded classroom, but even stuffed up the keyhole to keep out the draught. I grew up under the idea that fresh air was a very dangerous and invasive poison. English visitors crowd into Wales for the pure air against which many of the inhabitants hermetically seal their houses. It is a great thing that the race should grow up with a knowledge of the pimple essentials of health. For no one is it more important than for the working man that he should know what toods give him the (rrealest vllln" for his money, and it matters much for the health and happiness of the home that the housewife should know how to cook to the best advantage the food which she buys. In all these things knowledge means not only power but cheapness. The evils that result from ig- norance on these points are grave and far-reaching. For example, few tilings give the buyer less value fOr his montiv than alcohol. I say all these things from the point of view of the parent. If the boys and girls who go out into* the world from Festiniog are to make their way they must be sound in character and furnished with bodies that have been well trained and with brains well educated. THE FUTURE OF WALES. Let me say a word to those who are going to live and work in Wales. One ambition which is now very often put before Welshmen is thus expressed: "Oodi'r hen wlad yn ei hoi," which means, "to raise the Fatherland back to where it was." The phrase puzzles me. T what point in her past history dc want to raise Wales back gain? I have no desire to live under the laws of Howcl the Good, with their serfdom and murder made easy. We talk a great deal about our last Prince, Llewellyn, but those were days of doubtful happiness and of no security. An unprotected traveller who started in those days from Festiniog to St. Asaph would probably have never seen either again. These distant centuries are nicer in poetry than in reality. The truth of the matter is that this Welsh phrase is aother version of "the good old times." Now, I am not a believer in the good old times as compared with the present time. I do not believe there ever was a more prosperous Wales, a better-fed Wales, a better-clothed Wales, a better-housed Wales, a better-educated Wales, a bet- ter-behaved Wales than the Wales of to-day. The same is equally true of England. But I do not say that the Wales of to-da.y is perfect. You boys and girls can help to make It in the future a more sober Wales, a. more pure and truthful Wales, a more broad-minded Wales, and even a more courteous Wales. As long as intemperance exists, so e' long can there always be a more sober Wales. False- ¡ hood and impurity are pretty constant residents everywhere, but you can do something in your day and generation to help to root them out. But what do I mean by a more broad-minded Wales? Broad- mindedness is not the amiable acquiescence in the opinions of those who disagree with you. Welsh people have a wholesome contempt for "Shon bob ochr," but I think they do respect those who hold their own opinions firmly and express them freely and desire for others the liberty they claim for them- selves. Let me also put in one word for those small, sweet courtesies of life that do so much to smooth the road of it. As a nation the Welsh are pre-eminent for what I may call an hoapititble heart and, as a con- sequence, for genial manners. The modern bounder ridicules the courtesy of the little village maid as "a Workhouse bjb," and the boy's "salute of defer- ence" as servility. There are not many bounders in Wales, but to all such I would say that rudeness is not independence. To you, the boys and girls of Festiniog, let me say that courtesy is a great adorn- ment, and often a true index of character, and that true courtesy springs from that spirit of reverence, which, while ready to recognise superiority and worth in others, is itself the surest safeguard oi sell-respect. Let me add a word of general application. We Welsh, like the I'haeacians, are touchy and sensitive under criticism. But criticism is wholesome. What goed would it do you to take your exercises up to a master who never criticised your blunders? Wel- come, therefore, honest criticism. A salt bath to sound skin is wholesome and stimulating, but if there are any tender places it is still wholesome although it smarts, leading in some cases to screaming, which is always childish. It only remains for me to say that it has given me great pleasure to visit Festiniog School, There can be no doubt that this is an ex- cellent- school under an excellent head master, and that it supplies to this indlisli-ial centre an admir- able training for the youth of the district (applause). Mr R. 0. Davies, solicitor (clerk to the go- vernors) congratulated tho meeting upon hav- ing hoand such an excellent addrets from the Bishop of St. Asaph, by whcee province they felt highly honoured The fact that his lordship had been invited to deliver an address and present tho prizes at that meeting sliowed' how he was esteemed by the Nonconformists of Festiniog. Referring to the statement in Air Dodd's re- port about the lUigjan. language Demg a stumbling block to many of tho pupils who had done well in other subjects. Mr Davids dwelt up-oai the necessity that however much parents should desire their children to thoroughly know WCJMI, the children should also thoroughly mas- ter the English langu-ige wliicih was an absolute cf^ential before any children could succeed in lifo these days. A oordia], vote of thanks to the Bishop was pamood on the motion of the Rev- D. T. Ilughes, the Vicar.
CONWAY COUNTY COURT. APPLICATION FOR A NEW TRIAL. _ø_- JUDGE MOSS INDIGNANT. T C^mway County Court, to-day week, Mr Bliss new tnaFof for an /°i; a trial 01 a ca«so nearu at mo iuc.t i_iiandudr,o County Court, in which Charles Stono, solicitor, Bath, as administrator of the estate of his wife, iflic la to Gladys Milliioent Stone, sued several members of a family named Francis for the re- covery of certain goods, and in which judgment was given for the plaintiff in the case of two of the male members of the family, and costs were given against the female members. In making the application Mr Bliss Hill pro- ceeded to outline the reoent case, when the Judge interposed, saying that he did not want k°u £ ° i^to the caso again. Ho wished to know what the application was. Mr Bliss Hill: Very well if you will not hear me on that part of the case, I wish to point out that the four actions were tried together, and judgment was given in one case for the de- fendant, MisB Francis. Mr Jam- Porter: I cannot agree to that. Tho caso against Miss Francis was withdrawn. His Honour (referring to his n Tho action against Miss Francis was withdrawn, and no oosts. His Honour further said that having con- sidered the question of costs he would not enter- tain the application with regard to Mrs and Mias F rancis. In the exercise of his discretion, and having regard to tho scandalous character of what had taken place, he had decided not to give oosts, and he there-foro declined to hear Mr Bliss Hill on that point. Mr Biiss Hill: That is with regard to two innocent people. The Judge: Don't make me say what I think. about the oase, Mr Hill. Mr Bliss Hill: On tha.t point I ask vou to bean- me. The Judge: No, I decline to hear you any further on that matter. Mr Bliss Hill submitted that there was no reason why, becausc of the conduct of one man, all tho members of his family should bo besmirched. The Judge: Will you make your application in regard to Emerron Francis, please? I am astounded that any reference should have been made to the situation. If there are aAy legal grounds for making an application for A new trial will you tell me what they are? Mr Bliss Hill then stated the growls at length, and said that Temple Francis ktod been in Possession of a trap in question for onr 18 TJu wmb a highly roepoot&H!* *0.11, and his family were very respectable people, having lived 111 Colwyn Bay for many ^e*re, a fact, of which, he thought, the Judge was not aware. Tho statement that the dead woman was in the habit of borrowing had, he sub- mitted, been sustantially corroborated. It had been stated that tho trap was worth E25, but there had been no evidence to that effeot. He appealed to tho registrar or any other solicitor in court on that point. Tho Registrar: I say that there was if you appeal to me. The Judge: We will have no appeals, please. Mr Bliss Hill said that the Judge found the value of the trap to bo £ 21, but no evidence had boon I)roduoo,(il to etruitle him to arrive at that decision- Ho therefore contended that the judgment was against the weight of evidence and wrong in law. and for that reasou he asked for a new trial. Not a tittle of evidence had been produced to prove the value of any of the goods. Continuing, Mr RUSB Hill said that his Hon- our had no power to give judgment against defendant for the amounts. He (Mr Hill) had 34 years' experience in oounty court work, and contended that it was a vorv imnortant matter to the bi-other and the mother- He closed his address by appealing to the Judge to give the Francis familv a Chance against a man like Stone, who had lived apart from his wife f< £ fourteen years, and upon her death had claimed her property. The Jud^e: I refine both a^nlicatior*. Mr Bliss Hill: Do costs follow? Judge: Yes, costs to follow. Mr Bliss Hill: Coets ought to follow my judg- ment J J s Tho Judge: There is no need for you to be impertinent. I will not allow either you or any body oJae to treat me, sitting here as a judge, in that insolent manner- Mr Bliss Hill; I want justioe. I sneak with all respect. you treat me in that insolent way I shall diecdrne to hear you at all. Mr Bliss Hill: Oh, no. You cannot do that. The Judge: I will, until you apologise, and I now give you notice that on no future occasion will I listen to you until you have withdrawn these improper observations to me as a judge. The incident then cLosed.

CLAIM AGAINST CONWAY CORPORATION. LIVERPOOL CLERK FALLS INTO A TRENCH* AWARDED DAMAGES FOR INJURIES. A case of conSidrabl interest was tried be- fore his Honour Judge Moes at Conway County Court, to-day week, the court-room being crowded during the hearing which lasted several hours. ,c The plaintiff, Mr Robert Evans, solicitor's clerk, of 70, WcUington-etrcct, Liverpool, was in the month of August 6taying at Brynffynon, Old-road, Conway and one night when he was returning to the house he fell into an excava- tion or trench which the Gorporation had opened in order to lay down a sewer. He sustained injuries of a serious character, and brought an action against the Council to recover £ 200 as damages for t.heir alleged negligence in leaving the excavation unprotected. His total claim for mc-dical attendance, Loss of wages for. seven weeks, cost of holiday to recuperate, etc., was put. down at L30 odd, and the remainder of the damages he sued for were as compensa- tion for suffering, injury, etc. The defendants had paid into court the sum of j616 and oosts, and denied liability. The action had been remitted from the High Court. Mr W. C. Re-es, otf the Northern Circuit, in- structed by Messrs Gradwell, Abercrombie and Co., Liverpool, appeared for plaintiff, and the Corporation were represented by Mr Trevor Lloyd, instructed by Mr Thornton Jones, tho Corporation solicitor. Mr Roes, in opening the case, said that the plaintiff had been in the employ of Mr J. W. Hughes, solicitor, Conway, as shorthand writer and typist. He first came to < Conway in January, 1907, and went to lodge in Bay View, Okl-road, On August 6th-a trench was opened in Old-xoad about 150 feet long, and about two and a half feet deep. There was no fence at all round the excavation, and only one lamp at each end. The plaintiff had no knowledge that tho trench had been opened. About 10.30 p.m. the plaintiff, who had gone out through the back door of the house, fell into the trench. He was pulled out by a fellow lodger na.med Thomas Owen, who carried him to the house, where he lay in an unoonscious state for some time. On August 9th a letter was written to Mr Dela- motte, the engineer of the Corporation, calling his attention to the fact that the trench was ,ungu,arded, and the day after the Council placed iajnps, and fixed fences round the trench. Evans had suffered seriously from the effects of the accident, and was attended from August 7th until &-r>uuøber 23rdi by Dr. Foulkes. In con- sequenco of the effects of the accident piain- titt had to give up his employment with Mr J. W. Huglxsa. Plaintiff corroborated his counsel's statement, and said that in consequence of the accident he if ad been unaible bo follow his employment, and had to sell some of his furniture. His wife had also to take employment. In cross-examination Plaintiff admitted that u noticed some drain pipes in Old-road, trtit did not see any men working on the road. Ho had since heard that the foreman of the work had been round and told Mrs Oliver, the landlady, not to let anyone out through the back door a3 a trench was being opened. It was a very dark night, and the door was uru locked by Owen. Further evidence was given by Dr. Pierce Foulkes, Elizabeth Oliver, and Mrs Evans, plain- tiff s wife. Mr J. W. Hughes stated that plaintiff was engaged by him on January 14th, 1907, at a weekly salary of 30s. Plaintiff gavo every satisfaction, but after the accident he was not the same man. THE DEFENCE. Mr Trcvor Lloyd submitted that no evidence of negligence hiti been adduced, but, on the other hand, there wa6, he sLLbmitted, very strong evidence of contributory negligence. He could not hcip thinking that Evans knew of the drain, and submitted that negligenoe had not been proved. His Honour: I will hear the evidence. Mr F. A. Delaanotte stated that the full length of the trench was 28 yards, and in the deepest part it was only 1ft. Bin. There was a barrel a.t each end of the trench and a lacip within 2J ya.rds of the house in which the plaintiff lodged. He instructed the foreman to warn the peoplfl of the opening of the trench. In reply to Mr Trevor Lloyd, Witness said that Dr. Foulkes had told him the whole affair was but a trivial matter. In reply to Mr W. C. Roes, Witness said that the pipes had been in Old-road for about three weeks before the trench was opened. The trench was about five feet from the door of Bay View. David Roberts stated that he lit the lamps on the night in question about 8.25 p.m., and a witness named William Roberts stated that he put the lamps out at 6.45 a.m. on August 7th. Robert Jones, a clerk at the Council Offices, said, he had Hved at the house in Old-road for about seven years, and that the light from the kitchen window could be seen plainly from the road. Dr. J. R. Williams stated that he had ex. amined the plaintiff, and found him suffering from a slight sprain of the muscles on the right hip. There was ako a small bruise. Plaintiff complained of palpitation of the heart. He was a big cigarette smoker, as his fingers, which were very marked, testified. In cross-examination, Dr. Williams said ha was instructed to examine the plaintiff by the Conway Corporation, and was afforded every) opportunity to conduct the examination. Mr W. C. Rees, in addressing the oourt for the plaintiff, contended that the accident had been a very serious matter for the plaintiff who had lost hie employment, and he, therefore, asked for substantial damages to compensate him for the loas he had suffered. JUDGMENT FOR PLAINTIFF. In giving judgment his Honour said that the plaintiff sought to recover damages owing to the negligenoe of the derfendante in allowing a. trenoh to be unprotected and unlighted in Old- road. He did not think that the trench waa unlighted, but was partly lit. He could not oonceivo that anyone living in that house did not know of the excavation, but still he could not see that contributory negligence had been proved. The plaintiff had a right to use the road, and if the trench had been properly pro- tected the plaintiff would not have fallen into it. He was very much astonished at the evidence of Mrs Oliver, who had been warned bj the Council, but did not think it worth while- warning the inmates of her house that within five feet of her door was a trench, which if. any of them stepped in might result in a sorious accident. She undoubtedly very much to blaane. He gave judgment for the plaintiff for jB20 59 damages and oostil
