Majo." Godfrey FitzHugh (Killed). We regret to say that a report was received at Wrexham on Weune&da.y stating that Major Godfrey FitzHugh of Plas Power has fallen in action in Palestine. The news (says the Harder (Jountks Adverlizzr) will be received with great regret in Denbighshire, where the gallant Major was well known and highly respected, par- ticularly amongst the members of the Wynnstay Hunt and by the agricultural community, with whom ho had been closely allied for many years. Major Godfrey FitzHugh was born in October, "873. He was a son oi Godfrey William Fitz- Hugh of Plas Power, and a nephew of the well- remembered Thomas Lloyd Fitzilugh, who died in January, 1895, His mother was a daughter of Captain Henry Oakeley of Oakeley, Bishop's Castle. Major Fitzilugh's father diod very shortly after his succession to the estates. Major FitzHugh served in tho forces, end went through the South African campaign. Later, he icturned tc Plas Power, and was given a cordial welcome homo by his tenantry and neighbours. He mar- ried Miss Peel, daughter ol the late Mr Edmund Peel of Brynypys, and a brother of Major Hugh ported, ho fell a few days ago. Major FitzHugh joined the Montgomeryshire Yeomanry, and in due course went to Palestine, where, it is re- ported, he fell a few daysugo. Major FitzHugh took an active part in the work of local govern- ment in Denbighshire, and was a member of the County Council, in connoction with which he took a keen intei est in the work undertaken under the Small Holdings Act. A successful agriculturist, Major FitzHugh was president of the Wrexham and District Farmers' Association, in the organisation of which he took great in- terest. Before tho war ho assisted to promote the successful ploughing matches held under the auspices of the Association, and during the war he came homo to assist in Cllû of the special. efforts made by the fainiers on behalf of the Red Cross Society.
Lieut. Gwilym A. Jones (Killed). I Mr L. D. Jones, Bangor (Llew Tegid), re- ceived nevve on Saturday of the death in action on October 25bli of his youngest son, Lieut. Gwilym A. Jones, R.G.A. Lieut. Jones, who was 31 years of age, was educated at Friars School and at the University College of North Wales, where he graduated B.Sc. After leav- ing college, lie became assistant master at the King Edward VII. Boys' Grammar School, Chelmsford, and from there he took up a post at Stourbridge Grammar School. When he joined the army in 1915, he was on the teaching atafl of Saffron Walden Grammar School. He was an enthusiastic soldier and a sound artillery officer. Writing to the bereaved parents, the deceased's Commanding Officer states:—" I am very upset indeed to lose him and hardly know how to ex- press myself to you. You and Airs. Jonea have my deepest sympathy. Your son was in charge of a party of our men getting guns into a most difficult forward position when lie met his death. He was killed instantaneously. Shortly before his death he reported to me that he had suc- ceeded in hauling the last gun out of a sthell hole in which it had stuck for some time. This wa.s meet excellent work, and we were all very pleased. Your son proved a really good officer from the time he first joined the artillei-y. The men were cry fond of hian, and were a.lwavs interested in carrying out his orders thorough- ly. No matter how difficult or how hopeless his particular work was, lie always tackled it with the same keenness, anil lij*s success as an officer is chiefly due to this. The men showed their ap- preciation of his value by carrying hie body back four miles, mostly through shelled areas, in orde.r that lie might rest in peace in the British ceme- tery behind the lines He died gallantly carry- ing ou/t most oritical work, and we were proud of him." Hit, brother, Lieut. Llewelyn Jones, is now at Kinmel Camp. Mrs Jones, mother of the de- ceased officer, returned home this week after undiergoiing a severe operation. At a meeting of the Bangor Brotherhood, on Sunday, and also at Ebenezer Congregational Chapel, a vote of sympathy v.as passed with the bereaved par- ents.
Lieut. Percy Griffith, Llanfair I Talhaiarn (Killed). On Saturday, a telegram was received by Mrs Robert Griffith, Glasfryn, llanfair Talhaiarn an- nouncing the death in I< ranee of her son, Lieut. Percy Griffiths. Following a successful career, at Abergele County School, the deceased, who was about twenty-five years of age. was engaged at the office of Messrs Porter, Amphlett, and Co., solici- tors, Colwyn Bay, and joined the Army shortly after the outbreak of tlu war. He saw service in France prior to returning home to enter a. radet school. After being gazatted lieutenant he returned to the front a short time ago. He was a grandson of the late Alderman William priltitJb, London House, Llanfair.

I TOO MANY SERVANTS. I SIR AUCKLAND GEDDES TO ANNOUNCE I "STEPS."

Mr Beok replied for the Miniebry of National Service: These advertisements have not escaped the notice of Sir Auckland Geddes. He hopes that the awakened ooneoieiioee of those wiho have in this respect failed to appreciate their duty j will provide an immediate and sufficient remedy. If not, in an early statement on manpower he hopes to dtate dediniitely the steps which will be fcakeai.
YEARS OF SHORT I FOOD. MR PROTHERCFS ALARMING FACTS. I The food shortage will continue through next year and for a considerable period afterwar ds, submarine menace or no submarine menace, war or no war, said Mr Prothen-o at a luncheon given bv the British Empire Producers-' organisa- tion in London yesterday. Sir Chairles Batluirst explained that the luncheon wa-s arranged before Slllr Artiatr Yapp's appeal to stop such func- tions. 0.0 In view of the above statement we cannot but offer our protest against the holding ot the usual banquet whiven is held on Lord Mavor's Day, or any other public ban- quet. Some of the regulations regarding food rationing at the present time are perfectly anomalous, and lead to the waste of good food. Two instances have been brouglht to our notice. A gentleman staying at a Manchester Hotel eaUed for an early morning cup of tea. This was brought to him without sugar, W hien he asked fat' sugar he was informed that he could only have it if the took bread and butter as wll, which constituted a meal. The sugrur and bread and butter welle brought, aaid ae the latter was not required it was not eaten. Another instance, the Food Controller has prohibited pastry cooks from making open tartlets1 small pastries with jam or lemon cheese on the top. These are now pnoihibiited, unless they are covered with pastry, thus, as one pastry oook informed us the otiher day, many pounds of flour are waited tihrougth this Order. What can the public think, on the one hand, of the Food Control Department making frantic appeals to everybody to save flour, and then issuing instructions which seen, responsible for more waste than if no instructions were issued at all.
CHEAPER POTATOES. I COMPENSATION FOR GROWERS' LOSSES. I The withdrawal of the minimum price of £6 a ton on growers" sales of potatoes was announced yeeteircllav by Mr Clynes on behalf of Lard Rhondda. There will now be a free inarltit subject to the maximum price being observed.

CORRESPONDENCE. I STATE PURCHASE V. PRO* I HIBITION. (To the Editor). I Sir,-It is pdtflful to tliink how dicided tesnpear- aaice reformers are in view of the prime appor- tunity offered by the state of public opinion, and the dispositiion of the G overt mient to deal efficiently with the liquor traffic. This difference of opinion ie conspicuous in North Wales, where ,the Temperance Party is always active," and is eupposed to be strong. Iw simpl'e alternative.s of prohibition during the wair and six months after, and of State- purchase and State-management of the liquor traffic, have given birth to a brood of other pro- posals, and the real .question at issue tends to become eonfueed and bewildering. For example. our support is solicited, in addition to the above proposals, for Sir Herbert Roberts' Local Op- tion Bill for Wales; Sir John Owen's (Chester; scheme; and now Mr E. T. John, M.P., an- jiouncea a programme decidedly in advance of any other. For my part, I should be willing to support any one of them as if they were equally good and desirable, for their spoaisora are true and consistent temperance reformer's; but there is one question they all avoid, except those who ■advocate State-purchase. Is the scheme proposed practica-ble now? We would probably all agree that the temper of the country is ripe for acition of a thorough- going nature for the period of the war and after; but I would submit that neither the country nor p!ai'L3amenit ie in the mood for a Licencing Bill, nor for any measure that would involve a large number of disputable points, and be opposed by the liquor interest every step of its way. Parlia- ment and the country will not dfeal except with a simple issue. It ie maintained that State-purdhase witth local option is a simple issue, and should commend itself to all who are interested as the best mea- puire under the circumstances. After years of agita-tioii and tviumphs on many other fields, we have to confess that the Temperance Paafty has not be-on encouraged by eucoeas in Paiiiita- ment, except in the oase of the Welsh Sunday Closing Act. The reason is sufficiently well known. They were up agruinbt private interests, entrenched in limited companies with a vast or- ganisation concemnitig the ,hk oo-_mtrYi and a?nst ancient and deeply-rooted pensona l pre- judices. But, owing pd-inciipally to the inaight and courage of the Prime Minister, the nation became convJnoed that the lure of drink was hindring our efficiency, and that something had to be done to check it. The Liquor Control Bill was passed, and its extensive provisions were ftpplied with promptitude and courage, and the policy of the Board was rewarded by a striking success. The policy of State-purdhaee is supported by the following argumejifcs:— 1.—Purchase would be a final method of dtea?mg with the traffic. i.1,17?f The control of manufacture and sa!c would be wholly in the hands of the Govem- me-nt, i.e., of the public, and private interests would be extinguished. 3.—The extinction of licences and reforms could be proceeded with gradually, and in har- mony with the growth of publac opinion in tliia-t diredtion. It is anticipated that the cost of the purchase would be covered by the profits of the trade a.nd by the sale of redundant houses. It is proposed to hold a conference in Bangor, learly in December, to which those who are in favou/r of State-purchase are to be invi ted, in ordler to- eetabfeiii a branch of the Temperance Legislation League for Nm-th WaJe-s, and thus to initiate a- campaign for the education of the people on the subject. Conferences have alricady been held elsewhere with excellent reisult-B.- Yours, etc., H. L. I
AGRICULTURAL ORGANISATION SOCIETY AND THE FARMERS' UNION. (To the Editor.) I Sir,—In the Editorial Notes which appeared in your issue of the 26th ult. you refer to the formation of a. Farmers' Union for North Wales, and state that "in co-operative buying ot manures, seeds, and household goods, in the pro- vision of butter and checse-making fact or its, there is mucii that North W ales farmers can do banded together. These tre only three obvious directions in which agriculturists look to the Union for a large measure of help." Permit 'ne to say that there is no need for the farmers of North Wales to "look to" the Union for the above purposes, as the Agricul- tural Organisation Society, which, as many of your readers are aware, has been working in the district for several years past, is ready and anxious to assist farmers in the formation of societ ies for the co operati ve purchase of their requirements and for the sale of their produce upon the same lines, or for the provision of butter and cheese making faotories, and similar enterprises. Farmers have only to communicate with the A.O.S. organising secretary, Mr E. W. Jones, Cathedral Buildings, Bangor. I may, however, add that the A.O.S. will welcome the formation of the Union, and be prepared to coildially co-operate with it in the promotion of any undertakings which have for their object the benefit of the agricultural com- munity 111 general in North Wales.—I am, etc., BOSTON, I President N.

DISFIGURATION OF STREET TREES AT BANGOR. (To the Editor.) I Sir,Bangor streets are not so well decorated with trees that oue can regard the disfiguration of the few that exist without feelings of dis- appointment and disgust. Where trees are planted directly in front of houses a certain amount of intelligent pruning is necessary to admit light In such places one should plant trees whose growth ca-i bp controlled by pruning without damage to their appearance. Limes, elms, etc., are examples of such trees Such con- siderations C311 provide no excuse for the reck- less mutilation of the Lombardy poplars in Deiniol-road. Up till recently one had hopes cf a fine avenue of these graceful trees, but the misdirected energies of our mmicipal foresters have extinguished those hopes for ever. It should be remembered tha.; a Lombardy poplar is a plume-shaped tree and no amount of pruning wil) convert it into the shape of an elm or lime. There is no doubt that these trees required at- tention such cutting away superfluous branches in order to afford more light aiAd also to enable the trunk to grow in proportion with the top To cut away the centre of a Lombardv poplar, at has been done, shows a serious lack of under- standing of the natural habits and consequent- treatment of decorative trees The damage is doiie, ind we have no more municipal trees to disfiguie but the occasion should not be lost of voicing the general disapproval of this apparently uncounsellod act of vandalism.—I am etc., dexdropiiile.
FATAL FLYING ACCIDENT AVIATOR KILLED IN ANGLESEY. While flying in Anglesey, on Wednesday. a fatal accident befel Lieut. B. R. H. Car r, R.F.C., and b3s companion, Corporal Harold .Sm,lv,li, was severely injured. It appear^ that the biplane in which Lieut.' (Carter and his companion were flying was des- cending, owing, it is surmised, to the strong wi'nd prevailing at the time, when it was caught by a sudden gust which capsized it. The mach- ine was seen descending nose first, and Lieut. Ca.rter was found crushed under the engine with his skull fractured, having apparently been irsitantly killed. Corporal Smitlh had a miracu- lous escape from death, though "he was badly iqJ- jured in the head. An inquest will be held to- day (Friday).

BANGOR CITY COUNCIL. I IX)DAYS MEETING. I ALDERMAN R. J. WILLIAMS RE- I ELFCTED MAYOR, I I The annual meeting of the Bajigor City Coun- oil was held this (Friday) morning. Mr Owen Owen proposed the re-eleoiion of Alderman R J, Williams ai mayor for the fifth year in succession He said that when the mayor was first elected he was given a remark- ably good testimonial, and he had lived up to it. The work ho had done was really marvellous, and that under unparalleled circumstances. The I number of committee meetings he had attended amounted some hundreds; and he had travelled up and down the country at hie own expense to further the interests of the city. He hoped that during the coming year a just and righteous peace would be declared. In conclusion Mr Owen Owen recited a number of Welsh stanzas eulogising the work of the Mayor and Mavoress. Mr John Williams seconded, and Sir llenry Lewis, in supporting, said they were particular- ly fortunate in Bangor in having, during this war, a mayor who not only had time at his dis- posal, but the will to serve; and that they had also a mayoress who had done noble work (hear, hear). The motion was carried unanimously, and the Mayor, in acknowledging, urged those at home to do their duty to win the war. Thouph 16 War Savings Association branches had been established in the city, he feared the bulik of the people had not naalieed the gra-vity of tlie situation. The attendances at meet.ijiigB held in furciieranee of economy and war evvuwjs in Bangor wece most disappointing. Hie Nlayor paiid a tribut-e to the work" of the Women's Patriotic Guild in the direction of wair saviiigs. He said that a cleirgyin-aii had oomplainied to him that the rates were too high, but as a matter of fact the general dlifc'tmiet raite was cniy As in the JS, which compared favourably with other towns. The net rate was reaKy 2s 9id, the remainder representing the deficit,, on differ- ent undertakings. Really they were being visited for the sins of their fathers. The Coun- oil had borrowed no leas than £261,386 for the different concerns, but they had paid £ 130,606 out of that total. They were now cayttTi-g a/t the rate of practically £ 7000 a year of their diebt. and in the last few yea-re they had not incurred; any new capital expenditure, excepting die tree wiring agreement and the new steamer. Trie annual payment of diebt diUlring the nepit five years would be reduced by £ 1055; in eright years by £ 2-308 125 5d, and in ten yeans by E5432 76 7d, so the prospect was very encoumgring.

PENMAENxMAWR AND GERMAN PRISONERS QUARRYMEN'S PROTEST. T Preparations are being made at Penmaenmawr for the huuciui,g there of a number of German /priisoneus of war who are to be employed in the .girtanite quairrites. At the meeting of the Penmaeiimawr Council j (Oil Tuesday night, 1111: R. D. Owen in the chair, Mr Griffith Roberts, a Laboui' member, moved that the Council protest strongly against the em- ployment of German la-boutr isi the quarries. The njosion was seconded by Mr T. Roberts. Speaking in opposition to the resolution, Mr P. il. McClomoriit said the Government seemed to think i,t woutid be to ttiesr advantage to em- ploy 144 Germans there. All tJhoe available lab- pur was aia-eady engaged in the quaua-ies, but the ■quiaiiuUy of nuaberuial the Government required was not beiing produotxl, writh tho result that the Gove/nnimeiit were going to the expense of fencing wiMi barbed wire tine place in which tihe prisoner would be billeted. he understood that fohe stone from Penma.enmawr wais to be used gK-ar Li verpool. Certainly the Government would not wash to send praison-ens to Peimiaen- miawr if it weire not for some good reason. He fS'figigeisted thait it was outside tihe jurisdiction of the Couaicil to paai tihe resolution whiciii had been proposed. It was a "dog in the manger" policy to protest against these men beiaig brought to ohe quarry to aepist the Govermn-ient iJ1 get- iting the material necessary to carry on the war. He uinderetood that a deputation from the Quarrymeai's Union had been down to consider tho maUter, but they had not sent any direct com- mwiioailimi to the Council. Mr Giriffit'h Roberts sa.id there had been a igeneral meeting in the quarry, at whliclll the (Secretary of the Union had been called in. Every hand was up against these Germane oomiiing there, and if they came theire would be Mir J. H. Higson, who is one of the darectoris of the Quurry Company, explained that, al- though the quatiry was not controlled" by Govwnindent the output had to be disposed of according to Goverrameaic fdirc-otions. The com- pany bad tried to get eorne of their own men back from the army, but the Government would 'not oonseuit to that, and had said they would supply Geu-man prisoners. If they came, the (prisoners would be an advantage to the whole (neighbourhood; they would eraable the quarrifes fo be kept working better, and, better wages would be earned by the present staff. The -resolution was defeated by a majority of one.
