» FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT AT PEMBROKE DOCK. The ninth annual tournament in coniiectioii with the Pembroke Dock Athletic Club was held on Good Friday at the Bush Street Athletic Grounds, and attracted a very fair number of spectators. Nine teams of eleven a side competed for gold medals offered and the games consisted of two moieties of fifteen minutes each way, whilst scoring was by points, a goal counting as eight, and a corner as onfl The teams were handicapped as follows. Pem- broke Dock and R. G. A. scratch, Wiltshlire Band 4 points, Royal Dock and Apprentices 6, Neyland Rovers 6, Llanreath 7, Royal Engineers 8; Pmbroke Dock Reserves 10, and Wallsend Slipway Co. 13. This handicapping proved fairly satisfactory, but those responsible for the arrangements can hardly be congratulated on all that occurred. The refereeing in nearly all the games could not be termed satisfactory. Not only were some of the decisions somewhat incomprehensible but the players were allowed to get quite out of hand, and fighting openly took place on the field. The first round resulted as follows r— Royal Dockyard Apprentices (b) scored 4 goals 2 corners, total 40, beat Pembroke Dock Reserves (10), total, 10. R. G. A. (scratch) scored 1 goal 2 corners, total 10, beat Neyland Rovers (6), total 6. Pembroke Dock (scratch) scored 2 goals 5 corners, total 21 points, beat Royal Engineers (8) scored 1 corner, total 9. Llanreath (7) scored 3 goals and 1 corner, t*,)i al 32, beat Wallsend Slipway (12) scored 2 cor- ners, total 14. Wiltshire Band a bye. The second round resulted:- Royal Dockyard Apprentices (6) scored 1 goal 1 corner, total 15, beat Wilts Band (3) scoired 4 corners, total 7. Pembroke Dock (scratch) scored 1 goal 4 corners, total 12 points, beat Llanreath (7) scored 1 corner, total 8. Semi-final: Royal Dpck Apprentices (6) scored 1 goal, 2 corners, total 16, beat Pembroke DocM (scratch) scored 3 corners, total 3. Final. Royal Dock Apprentices (6) scored 1 goal, total 16, beat Pembroke Dock (scratch) scored 3 corners, total 3. One of the most even games of the after- noon was that between the Wilts Band and the Royal Dockyard Apprentices, a penalty goal giving the victors the game. Right through- out the afternoon the Apprentices were in fine form and in the four games they played they scored 61 points irrespective of their handi- cap points. A lot of interest was taken in the final tie, when the teams were as follows:— Pembroke Dock—Thomas, goal; Rowe and John, backs; W. Fielder, Mathias and Bowen, halves; S. Fielder, W. Davies, F. Fielder, Russen and Silcox, forwards. Royal Dockyard Apprentices- B. Rees, goal; D. Davies and F. Williams, backs; H. Jones, J. Vaughan, and W. Allen, halves; A. Jenkins, W. Morgan, E. Seattle, W. Phillips and T. Powell, forwards. Directly the game began it was apparent that the Docks hiad as much as they could manage, and as they began to realise this the seniors began to adopt questionable tactics, with the result that play became very rough. The Docks missed several good opportunities of scoring, and the teams crossed over with the Apprentices leading. Soon afterwards a fine individual effort by Powell resulted in a grand goal, and after that hostilities commenced in earnest, and Rees and Allen were each laid out in turn. Then another remarkable incident occurred; one of the linesmen calmly cleared off and the game had to be stopped whilst some- one else was found to man the flag, A littio later Jenkins and Johns came to fisticuiYs, and had a good stand up fight before the referee could interfere, whilst the spectators broke in upon the field of play and the game had to be stopped for about five minutes, eventually the referee ordered Jenkins off the field and soon afterwards John demonstrated a desine to follow his example by deliberately fouling several opponents. After stops for re- pairs to Morgan and Williams who were lal(1 out in turn, the game eventually conducts and the medals were presented to the winners by Councillor J. Lawrence.
SERIOUS ACCIDENT AT PEMBROKE A serioft8 trap accident occurred at Pembroke on Monday afternoon by which Mr. Samuel Hall, a well-known Cardiff draper and his nephew received painful injuries. It appears that Mr. Hall had been to Lian- reath, and on Monday afternoon was driving through Pembroke, with his nephew in a dog-cart, when on Vic- toria 'or as it is locally termed Awkward ") Hill, they met a man with an entire horse. Mr. Hall pnlled tip and entered into conver- sation with the man, and after awhile both his .wi mare and the horse became very restive. A motor car, driven by Mr. Gilbert- son, of Swansea, then appeared on the scene. The driver sounded his horn, and then as no notice was taken, slowed down, and ap- proached at a walking pace. The mare thCTi became still more restive, and the harness breaking she bolted down the hill at a ter- rific pace. In attempting to pull up the mare, the driver somehow ran into Castlo Rock on the left, and the two occupants of the vehicle were thrown violently into the road, whilst the dog-cart was smashed, though the mare was not much injured. Mr. Gil- bertson picked up the injured men, and con- veyed them in his car to the police station, were P.S. John rendered every available as- sistance After this Mr. Gilbertson fetched a doctor, and later Mr. Hall and his nephew were conveyed to the Lion Hotel. Mr. Hall's injuries did not prove to be very serious, but his nephew is lying in a critical cosdition.
CHAFFfUR FINED FIVE POUNDS. MOTOR CASE AT PEMBROKE DOCK. STORY OF A REMARKABLE HORSE. At Pembroke Dock Borough Sessions on Saturuay, before Mr. S. B. Sketch, Ald. Hutchings and Ald. A. McColl, Henry Brown, a chauffeur employed by Mr. Cunningham, of Penally Abbey, Penally, was summoned for driving a motor car on the highway in a manner which was dangerous to the public, at Pem- broke Dock, on March 22nd Defendant pleaded not guilty, and was de- fended by Mr. James John, of Carmarthen. Mr. H. A. Jones Lloyd appeared on behalf of a boy who it was alleged had been knocked down and injured. The nist witness was a milkman named William Hire, who stated that just before five o'clock on the day in question he was in Pem- broke-street when he saw a motor car come round the corner. The first intimation he had of the motor car coming was from the horse he was driving who always showed signs be- fore a motor approached. He heard no horn blown, and the first thing he saw was the car coming round the corner from Bush-street. Supt. Evans: Have you any idea of the speed? t Mr. John said that he must object to this His client was charged with driving in a manner and not at a speed that was dangerous to the public.. Witness: I did not say what speed he was going. Mr John remarked that it was a well known principle of law that in giving evidenci in one case, they could not admit evidence of other offences. The Chairman said he thought they were obliged to have some evidence of speed. Mr. John retorted that under the Act there were four offences driving "dangerously," "neglectfully," "at a high speed," and in a manner" dangerous to the public.,They were separated or else legislature would not have so defined them. The Chairman said that upon the speed de- pended in a great measure the manner in which the car was driven. Mr. John submitted that speed and manner were not interchangeable terms in the section. The Chairman: We will take your objection at any rate. A TERRIFIC PACE. The witness then proceeded with his evidence and said that when the car came round the corner three or four children were in the street. They were gathering something out of the gutter on a shovel, on the Market House side of the street. The motor came round the corner at a terriftc pace and so little control had the driver that it r, right up on the pavement at the opposite side of the street. The car knocked down one of the boys, the front of the motor picking him up, carrying him a yard or two, and then dropping him. Witness re- peated that the driver had no control, and that was what the driver expressed to him. When I the car stopped witness said Good God man, don't you know what you are doing rThe driver replied I am entirely to blame. What is the ) matter? What have I done?" The Chairman: You want us to understand that the man accepted blame before he knew what he had done?—He said "I am entirely to blame, what have I done Continuing witness said that he remarked You had better come down and see what you have done." The driver was wearing a macintosh coat and goggles, and witness could not identify him, but the number of the car was DE8. He afterwards told a police ser- geant of the matter. Supt. Evans: If he had come round at a reasonable speed, would he have been able to steer clear of the children?—I should say so. If he had come round at a speed of something like six or seven milles an hour he could have cleared then?—Yes, sir. The Chairman said that the Bench considered they had a right to ascertain the speed, in order to judge of the manner in which the car was driven. He proceeded to put a question to the witness who, however, stated that he could not form any idea as to the speed. Mr. John examined this witness at consider- able length, and he denied that a cart was standing first round the corner on the left hand side of the road. When he first saw the children they were on the market side of the road, and had a little wheelbarrow with them. AN INTELLIGENT HORSE. Mr. John: Did you hear a horn sounded?— No. Your horse got frightened before the car. came round the corner?—She knows when a motor car is coming. A horse can generally tell a long while before a motor comes. What became of the wheelbarrow ?—I don't know. The wheelbarrow was no more to me than my horse and cart. I hardly know what became of my horse and cart till a man brought it back. You were so excited you didnt notice a horse and cart at the Maypole corner, nor yet what became of the wheelbarrow ?—I did not. Will you deny that the, wheelbarrow was taken across to the opposite side of the road close to the Whie Hart?—Witness replied that he did not see it. Mr. John put several further questions, pressing the witness, who presently exclaimed hotly, I am not an interested man. I should not have interfered if the man had come back and taken the child up." Mr. John: You have some feeling in the matter?—I have some father's feeling. I am the father of two children. Mr. John: I am the father of two, too. Witness: Then I hope you have a father's feelings. Here the Chairman requested the witness to answer the question properly, and in re- ply to Mr. John he said that the children did not cross the road to the left side, and he did not afterwards see one of them run across the road right in front of the motor. The chaffeur did not swerve on to the pave- ment in trying to avoid the boy. WORD PAINTING. William Morris, of Golden Hill, said that on the day in question he was at the corner of Pembroke Street, when he saw a motor car. It was like a thing flying" said he. It came round the corner in a sou-west direction, right bang for the pavement, ne added. The two front wheels jumped the gutter. He saw the children in the road before the motor came, and afterwards saw the motor pass over one of them. He thought that he was killed, and told Mr. Hire to take him to Dr. Williams. The driver of the car came back, and witness said "You ought to be ashamed at the speed you were driving," and he made no reply. He did not see the number of the car. The Chairman said that he did not think Mr. John disputed that it was his client's car. Mr. John: The police must prove their case. Continuing, witness said that the driver of the car did not stop, but drove away. There was a lady in the car at the time. Mr. John cross-examined this witness also, and he said that he never heard the car until it came round the corner "nearly tly- ing." He denied that a cart was standing close to the Maypole corner. Mr. John: Did you see any children with a wheelbarrow ?—I had no time to look not think before the children were down. Rosanna Leahy, wife of Martin Joseph Leahy, was the next witness. She said that she saw the motor car come frijn the direc- tion of Albion Square. It came at such a pace that witness had to get out of the way quickly. It went by her like a puff of wind." The car ran into one boy. It came at such a pace that no one in the road had a chance to get away. She recognised the defendant as the man who was driving the car. She went to speak to the driver, and asked him what he was going to do about the child. He said he would be back in a few minutes and drove off. His minutes are long ones," added the witness grimly. The Superintendent remarked that the child was in court, and could be called it the magistrates desired. The Chairman said that it was a ques- tion of speed, and he did not think that the evidence of the child was necessary. THE DEFENCE. In addressing the magistrates on behalf of defendant, Mr. John said that Brown had learned motor driving at the Wolseley Works. Birmingham, and luad regiiiarly driven a car since the middle of 19uti, and had been in Mr. Cunningham's employ since February. His client's story was that he turned the corner at a reasonable speed, and the boys ran to the left close to where a cart was standing, and then one of them in a spirit of bravado, which occasionally seems to ac- tuate lads to run into danger, ran across the road right in front of the car. The driver swerved on to the pavement to avoid him, but unfortunately he was knocked down by the car. Dealing with the evidence, Mr. John said that Mr. Hire said that he was disinterested, but he had given information to the police, and that was not the action of a disinterested witness. He told them that when he saw the car coming he was ex- cited and very much upset. That he could readily understand, after he had seen the ex- citement Mr. Hire had exhibited in the box that day. In conclusion, he pointed out what a serious thing a conviction would be for the defendant, for he earned his livelihood by driving a car, and a conviction would mean that his license would be endorsed. Defendant was called, and said that he came along Bush Street at ten miles an hour, and slowed up coming round the corner. As soon as he got to the corner he saw a horse and cart in Pembroke Street on the left-hand side. There were two children in the street, and they had a wheelbarrow and were picking up grit from the road. The children pulled the barrow nearly to the pavement on the left, in front of the horse and cart. He estimated the speed at which he turned the corner at 5 or 6 miles an hour. Just before the car reached them, one of the boys ran back across the street. Witness steered on to the footpath to try and avoid the boy. He, however, was unable to avoid him, and the boy was picked up and carried on the front of the car for a short distance. He then dropped, and witness pulled up the car at once. In reply to Mr. John, witness said that the child was carried 200 yards, an answer which occasioned much surprise. How far was it? queried Mr. John again. About as fax as from me to you," replied the witness. Then why did you say 200 yards?" said the solicitor, and defendant made no reply. Defendant was cross-examined by Supt. Evans, who asked him if he considered ten niil,es an hour a proper speed to use in Bush Street, and he replied that he did. In reply to the Chairman, he said that he had never been in Pembroke Dock before, and he had never gone round that corner at all. Edith Evans, a domestic servant, employed at Penally Abbey, who was in the car, gave evidence for the defence. She said that the car slowed down when it turned the corner, and if the boy hall not run across the road he would not have been knocked down. Defendant had sounded the horn several times before he reached the comer. In reply to Supt. Evans, the witness said that defendant did not know the town, and she had been directing him which streets to turn up. She did not tell him to turn up Pembroke Street until they were about ten yards from the corner. Mr. John proceeded to call Mr. Cunning ham to prove that the man was a careful driver, but the Chairman said that he did not consider this necessary, as they would as- sume that up to the present the man had borne a good character. THE BENCH CONVICT. The magistrates retired, and on their re- turn the Chairman said that they had a strong impression in their minds that what had occurred was brought about by defendant intending to continue along Bush Street, and then being told when near the corner to turn up Pembroke Street and attempting to do so before he had slowed down sufficiently. He would be fined £5 and costs and the wit- nesses would be allowed costs as follows:— Mr. Hidl 6s., Morris 3s. 5d., and Mrs. Leahy 2s. 5d. I This, of course, also entailed the endorse- nient of the license, which defendant produced and handed to the Clerk.

PEMBROKE NOTES. "Wales is a sea of song" was the motto which caught the eye of all who attended the Easter Monday eisteddfod at Pembroke Dock, and very true did it appear during the course of the day. Music appears to draw crowds together 111 Wales in much the same manner ad a big football match does in the North, but there is this difference: The Welsh crowd appears to be very patient and will spend a whale day interested in what is going Uli, but is never raised to very much enthusiasm, whilst the football crowd of the orth, or of London, is a noisy, good- humoured crowd, easily raised to enthusiasm by anything stirring, but soon disgusted at anything monotonous. t t t Pembrokeshire probably possesses a much larger proportion of Saxons than Celts in the population, and the proverbial phlegm of the Saxon has toned down the tire and excitability supposed to be possessed by his Celtic brother. But if the audience was a trifle apathetic there was not the slightest doubt as to the earnestness of the competing choirs, and if aiU those taking part in the competitions have put in as much practice as tne local societies, the sum total of the time spent in practice must be colossal. t t t There was much satisfaction when Mr. Jen- kins awarded Pembroke Dock premier hon- ours in the chief choral class. The nearest choir to approach them in point of merit was Fishguard and Goodwick, who with a lot of young talent at their disposal, may possibly in the future reverse the verdict. Haverfordwest, another young choir, was a good third. Mr. T. G. Hancock is to be congratulated on leading Pembroke Dock to victory once more. Pembroke are probably feeling rather sore over Mr. Jenkins' criticism of their performance Very possibly they have visions of being in future termed the Weary Willies," and 1 really did feel sorry for them when the adjudicator rather weirdly remarked that their singing was "cadaverous and sepul- chral." I really didn't think it was quite deserving such epithets. t t t The item I most enjoyed was the open maie voice competition, but I was rather sorry that Haverfordwest did not compete. I should have liked to have seen at least one Pem- brokeshire choir competing, and better still, winning. Certainly it would be a triumph for a local choir to beat a choir like that which won the competition. ( t t t Last week I had a little query in thin column asking why there were not moie seats on Barrack Hill? Since then I have heard that they certainly would be appreciated, and judging by the number of persons 1 have seen seated on the grass, I think so ttiyself. Now let me make a suggestion. In Commercial Row there are several seats. Whose idea it was to place them there I don't know, but it is a fact that they are not greatly used. Certainly one would not go there to enjoy the scenery. Why not move these seats to Barrack Hill, where one could sit on them without getting covered in dust, and could also have a bird's eye view of the Haven? What say you, gentle reader? t t t That was certainly a remarkable horse which is owned by one of the witnesses in the motor case on Saturday. This animal, according to the proud owner, can detect the presence of an approaching motor car from the rear before he can either see it or hear it. Obvi- ously it must smell them-but what a re- markable sense of smell that equine wonder has. When a motor car has passed the smell is frequently nearly thick enough to cut with a knife, but I have never noticed the slightest scent from one before it reached me. I must express my admiration of the powers of the horse. I should almost imagine it would be worth its weight in gold to the Surrey police on duty round the Kingston and Ripley roads, where traps for motorists are numerous, and fines are heavy. Wanted to know: Why the gentleman pursued the other with the bread knife ? Was the pursued glad to reach the Dock- yard gate? Are we likely to hear more of the matter? Is there a lady in it ? Whether motorists really like this locality Whether witnesses are always disinterested, even if excited, or whether the prejudice against motors is really dead? Whether that steam roller is still locked up? Why not pawn it, if it isn't for use ? Why worry if the roads are rough and bumpy? How did politics mingle with the ozone on the trip to Tenby? Was that speech appreciated as it should have been ? Why an ambulance was not present at th. football tournament on Good Friday ? Was the exhibition given then the local idea of football?
A report of the St. John's Vestry will appear next week. About 250 people took advantage of a sea trip to Tenby on Saturday on the s.s. Menapia. and spent a very pleasant afternoon. On Wednesday afternoon the funeral took pdace at Pembroke Dock, of Mr. J. Thomas, a gentleman who for many years carried on business as a butcher in the town, and was identified with the local lodge of Freemasons. o n, The Crucifixion."—Sir John Stainer's sacred cantata, The Crucifixion," was performed last Wednesday evening at St. John's Church, Pembroke Dock, when the principals were Mr. R. H. Williams, Mr. T Allen, and Mr. H. Hinchliffe. Mr. H. Taylor presided at the organ. Sent to Prison.—At Pembroke Dock Police Court on Wednesday, before Messrs. J. Hutch- ings, A. McColl, and W. Angel, Thomas McCar- thy, a labourer, from Cashel, Tipperary, charged with being drunk and disorderly on the previous day, and using disgusting lan- guage, was sentenced to 21 days hard labur. Temperance Demonstration.—The annual temperance demonstration held by the Pem- broke Dock Total Abstinence Society, took place oji Good Friday, when the members of the various bands of hope in the town as- sembled at Bethany Square and marched in procession round the town, finally partak- ing of tea in the various church school-rooms. Mr. W. Evans acted as grand marshall, and Messrs. W. Sutton, A. Rogers, and T. Masters as deputy marshals. Whilst the bands of the society and the Salvation Army took part in the procession, which consisted of the foLlowing societies:—I.O.G.T., Pennar Wesley, St. Andrew's, Llanreath, Front Street Mis- sion, Bethany, Salvation Army, Gilgal, Meyrick Street Wesley, and Albion Square. The Dockyard Church.—There were large at- tendances at the whole of the services at the Dockyard Church 011 Sunday, and the singing was particularly good, and reflected much credit upon the organist and choir-master (Mr., T. G, Hancock). At the morning and even- ing service the anthem, "Gloria in excelsi=," from Farmer's "Mass in B Flat," was sung, the quartette being taken by the Misses Gladys Davies and Maggie Williams and Messrs. Greenland and F. Evans. \illiers Stan- ford's Te Deum in B Flat was sung at the morning service, and in the evening the Mag- nificat Ld Nunc Dimit.i* used » position of Mr. Hancock. T an^ Lewis preached morninga nd eveni g, decorations were in excellent tas e. The first annuaA social in connection with the Pembroke Dock Orchestral Society, of which Mr. N. A. Hay is president, and M, W. A. Frazer hon. secretary, was held at the Temperance Hall, on Wednesday evening, and proved so pleasant a gathering that doubtless next year's social will be eagerly anticipated. The hall had been prettily decorated by Mr. Fraser, and on the platform were a quantity of choice hot-house plants. Under the gal- lery was a buffet, where light refreshments were dispensed. The company numbered about 100, and Messrs. E. Hill and J. F. Swan efficiently carried out the duties of The floor was in excellent condition, and danc- ing was kept up until the early hours of Thurs day morning, the orchestra conducted by Mr. H. Russan providng the music. Free Church Council.—The quarterly meet- ing of the Pembroke Dock and district lite Church Council was held at Meyrick Street Congregational Church on Tuesday evening. Afterwards a public meeting was held at which the Rev H. Powell presided o>er a large attendance. The meeting was opened by prayer by the Rev. J. K. biiffiths, after which the Rev. J. Harry Owen, of Pembroke, delivered an interesting address on "The Use and Misuse of the Lord's Day." An- other interesting item was the address on Some Present Perils of Nonconformity" by the Rev. J. Gradoc Owen, of Llandysilio. The rev. gentleman commented favourably upon the new Education Bill, but did not altogether agree with one or two of the clauses relating to Catholics. Death of Mr. £ Nan Wilkins.—An old and respected townsman passed away on Monday afternoou in the person of Mr. Evan Wilkins. Mr. Wilkins, who had attained the ripe old age of 83, was born at Narberth, but for the past 60 years had resided in Pembroke Dock, where he carried on a business as a builder and contractor for many years. Some time ago he retired, and since then he has resided with his son-in-law (Mr. W. Smith) at Pembroke House, Bush Street, where his death took place, after-a very short illness. The late Mr. Williams was a member of the Town Council for nine years, and for six ytM.rs he was an alderman. He was a prominent Wesleyan, and was also one of the oldest Rechabites in the town. He leaves two sons, one of whom is at Portsmouth, and the other in America, and three daughters, Mrs. vv. Smith, Mrs. Lewis, and Mrs. Skryne. The funeral took place yes-terday (Thursday) afternoon. The New Liberal Club.—The members ot the Pembroke Dock Liberal Club have removed at last from their old room to the handsome new club-building which has been erected in Bush Street. For some time past the old premises had been found to be too small and when an opportunity occurred of acquiring a site in a good position it was taken advant- age of. The new club is a commodious brick built building, and was designed and built by Mr. C. Young, the cost being £950. On the ground floor is a spacious reading room, secretaries' office and committee room. The floor of each of these rooms are of wooden blocks. On the first floor is a fine billiard room, 44 feet long by 23 feet wide, and lofty in proportion. A new table has been put in by Burroughes and Watts, in addition to the tabtlje removed from the old premises. There are lavatories on e; l h floor, and the building is lit by incandescent gas. In addition to the club rooms titie is also ample accommodation for the stew..id on the premises. It was originally intended to have had the club formally opened by the member oil AprilL 21st, but this :Jea has now been abandoned. St. John's.—The Easter decorations at this place of worship were very beautiful, and weie the work of the following ladies:—Mrs. Phillips, Miss Thomas, Mrs. Culling, Mn h Darning, and Miss Ivy Sanders (altar and chancel), Mrs. Harris and the Misses Thomas (font), Mrs. Jenkins (lectern), Miss Williams, Miss Morgan, Miss Joseph, Miss Breadington, and the Misses Cox (windows). At each of the services a chorus from Stainer's "Crucifixion" was sung as an anthem, and Garrett's Te Deum was used in the morning, whilst the evening service was Smart in E. The ser- vices commenced with an early celebration of the Holy Communion at seven o'clock, the celebrant being the Rev. J. Titus, assisted by the Rev. T. Davies. At eight o'clock there was a choral celebration, which was con- ducted by the Rev. Hilary Lewis, who also preached at evensong. The parade service for the troops was taken by the Rev. T. Davies, who also intoned matins, the vicar, the Rev. S. T. Phillips, preaching. In the afernoon there was a reunion to past and present Sunday School scholars, and the church was filled. The children offered their Lenten savings, and these raised a sum of £ 5 6s. d9., which was devoted to the Church of England Waifs' and Strays' Society. A short address was given by the Rev. Hilary Lewis.
For Dockyard and other Pem- broke News, see page 5. COUNTY RATES GOING UP. CRITICISM BY PEMBROKE GUARDIANS. A meeting of Pembroke Board of Guardians was held on Thursday afternoon week at the Workhouse, when there were present: Mr. N. A. Roch (chairman), Mr. Egerton Allen (vice-chairman), Mrs. Lowless, the Rev. B. C. Evans, Major Wynne, Messrs. W. Griffiths, J. Jones, B. Hancock, W. Davies, J. W. Pen- ney, J. Hitchings, J. Thomas, G. Hall, W. G. Parcell, with the Clerk (Mr. J. 8. W. Jones) and the Master (Mr. C. Flutter). THE RATES. The Chairman read a communication from the Clerk to the County Education Commit- tee statisg that there would probably be a rate of 8d. in the £ for elementary education, 2d. for higher education, and id. for interme- diate education. It was further stated that the ordinary rate for the County Council would be 9d. in the £ Mr. Hancock: To whom does the higher education rate go? The Chairman remarked that there was only a nominal difference between the higher and intermediate schools. The Clerk's estimate was to the effect that £ 8 300 would be required for the half-year. 31r. Egerton Allen said that it was a most yorious thing, for the rates were going up enormously. When he first came on the Board—llot so many years ago— £ 8,000 was as much as they considered was wanted per year Now it had gone up to £ 8,300 for the half-year. The Chairman said it was a most extraor- dinary thing that the out-relief had not gone down, and in maintenance had gone up. Mr. Allen said that at the meeting of the County Council he should try to get them to reduce the general rate from 4d. to 3d. to- the half-year. He also considered that the rate fpr Elementary education might be reduced to 6d. or 3d. in the £ for the half- year whilst the 2d. for higher education ought to be protested against throughout the country. It was most extraordinary, con- sidering that up to the passing of the Educa- tion Act, all they had for higher education was a id. rate which produced £ 480. When this Act came in there was a clause which allowed county authorities to make a rate for higher education not exceeding 2d. in the E, and this the County Authority had seized upon. But he would like to point out that Wales was in an exceedingly favourable position compared with counties in other parts of the country, because they received money for intermediate education from vaii- ous sources. Quarter after quarter he had got up and objected to the fact that no account was given as to the way in which this money was spent. He had never, however, been able to ge\ a proper account of how the money was 'spent, and he believed they had a surplus in hand. As it was they must allow for £4,010 for the county, and £5,300 for the Union, but he considered that £8,000 would be sufficient. Mr. Parcell hoped that Mr. Allen wouid strongOy opose the 2d. rate for higher educa tion. Was there no means of reducing the high salaries paid, or discharging some of the people. Mr. Allen said that he found the salaries were always increasing. They paid the fares for pupil teachers, built laboratories, and spent money in other things like that. Mr. Parcell suggested that on the demand note it should be stated what portion of the rate went to the county and what part for education. The Clerk remarked that the overseers is- sued the forms prescribed by the Local GOY- ernment Board. Mr. Allen said that the first year he was on the Board the call was for i7,000 for the year; now they were asking for £8,300 for the half year. Mr. Parcell: I don't think the poor get any more than they did a hundred years ago. The Chairman: Wages have so gone up that there ought to be no pauperism at all. It was decided to make a call for £ 8,000.
PEMBROKE DOCK EISTEDDFOD. INTERESTING COMPETITIONS. ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL DAY. If there is one day in the year more not- able than another at Pembroke Dock, it is Easter Monday, for that is the day on which a great gathering of lovers of music from all over the three counties takes place, and the local choral societies pit themselves against similar societies throughout Pembroke and the surrounding counties. It is one of the few days in the year when the town really wakes up, the streets are alive with visitors, trade is brisk, and that most deserving in- stitution, the Victoria Nurses' Home, benefits substantially There is a vast amount of work in the organisation of such a function, calling for months of preparation. Monday's function was a success, and though possibly there had been hopes of still better things, the result on the whole was fairly satisfac- tory, considering the prevailing depression oc- sioned by the Dockyard discharges, etc. This had been anticipated by the organisers of the eisteddfod, and they had cut their cloth to measure, reducing the prize money slightly and also expenses in other directions. Thus, though the receipts were rather less than last year. the net result will probably be not far different. The number of entries this year was rather smaller than the last year, numbering just over 200 against 263 then. The principal items which showed a falling off were th solos, the entries for choirs being excellent. Indeed from a musical point of view, the eisteddfod was one of the most successful ever held at Pembroke Dock. The prize money this year was 9120, against kl54 last year, and the principal difference was that only iE26 was offered for the chief choral competition, as compared with JE60 last year, though for the open male voice, £30 was offered, against £20 last year. The influx of visitors into the town appeared to be as large, if not larger than usual, there- fore it was rather surprising that the number of tickets sold at the doors should be smaller than last year. Possibly the glorious wea- ther prevailing had something to do with this. THE OFFICIALS. The officials were a hard-working and num- I erous body, and the success of the function is an abundant proof of their energy. They were as follows:—Chairman of committee, Ala. S. J. Allen; vice-chairman and treasurer, Aid, A. McColl; general manager, Mr. W. Phillips; conductor, the Rev. Gomer Lewis (Swansea); adjudicators: music, Mr Harry Evans, F.R.C.O. (Aierthyr Tydvil), and Mr. R. C. Jenkins (Swan- sea); poeui, Rev. Vv. Edwards, D.D. (Prin- cipal Cardiff College); essay, Miss Ida Perman, M.A.; recitations, Mr. B. Potter, BA.; photo- graphy, Mr W. H. Bowling; painting, Miss Augusta Bowen; brush work, Mr. Wm. Wil- liams; wood-carving, Mr. Arthur Rees; needle- work, Mrs. H. W. iewis, Mrs. Thomas (mayor- ess of Tenby), and Miss May; cookery, Miss Lizzie Evans. The accompanists were Miss Hughes, A.T.C., and Mr, W. G. Phelps, and the secretaries were: Mrs. M. A. VV illiams (general), Mr. J. Stephen Jones (musical), and lr. A. Mackintosh (financial). THE PROCESSION. Proceedings commenced with a public pro- cession through the town, a start being made from the Meyrick Ward shortly after ten o'clock. The band of the Wilts- Regiment, under Bandmaster Eden, led the way, ana the members of the Corporation present in- cluded the Mayor (Coun. A. F. Beddoe), Aid. J. Hutchings, A. McColl, and S. J. Allen, Coun. J. Morgan, T. Davies, J. Grieve, W. Phillips, C. koung, J. Lewis, F. B. Tombs, and J. Lawrence, with the Clerk (Mr. R. D. Lowless), the Clerk to the magistrates (Mr. J. Thomas), the Sanitary Inspector (Mr. P. Morgan), and the Rate Collector (Mr. C. W. Lawrence). The Mayor of Tenby (Coun. George Thomas) was aiso present, as was Mr. S. B. Sketch, C.C., the Rev. R. C. Roberts, and the Rev. J. E. Griffiths, and Mr. VV. Evans, the chairman of the Burial Board. The streets were thronged with people, as to the strains of a lively march the cortege proceeded round the town finally. THE OPENING. Outside the hall there were strings of flags and inside the huge building had been adorned with flags and bunting. There were about 1,000 persons present when proceedings commenced with the playing of God bless the Prince of Wales," and the National An- them by the band. The President for the morning (the Mayor of Pembroke) then briefly addressed the meet- ing. He remarked upon the great amount of work which the committee had had, as well as the speculative enterprise required. Ald. Allen expressed the thanks of the or- ganisers of the eisteddfod for the encouraging words the Mayor had spoken. The Mayor of Tenby (Mr. Thomas) also made a few remarks, and spoke of the good work accomplished. THE ESSAYS. The first item on which the adjudicators' comments were read were the essays for seni- ors and juveniles. With regard to the former Miss Ida Perman remarked:—Essay on Pem- broke Dock and its surroundings. In con- sidering the merits of the eight essays sub- mitted to me for adjudication in this compe- tition, I wished to keep in mind the desiro of the committee to use the prize essay an an advertisement of the town in future occa- sions. The selective value of the essays, however, is such that had there been no con- sideration of the kind, the prize would still have fallen to the same competitor. The work of "Historicus" consists almost entirely of historical notes on Pembroke Dock and places in its neighbourhood. Although useful to the antiquary, these notes would probably be of little use to the ordinary visitor. Obser' ver's" essay is vague, rhetorical, and irrelevant, while that of Panto Bach nhows bad mis- takes in spelling and punctuation. The essays of "Ap Ivan" and "Menapia" are decidedly better in matter as well as in style, and all' three deserve commendation. One of the best essays is that of "Anonymous," but while the matter is conspicuously good, the style is marred by an excessive use of parenthesis and several syntaxical mistakes, which a careful revision might have removed. The last es- say is equally good in matter, free from mis- takes in composition, and direct, well-balanced in style. I have therefore no hesitation in awarding the prize to its author, who writes under the name of "Schiller" (Mr. David Au- brey Williams). With regard to the juvenile essay, How I spent my Christmas holidays." Miss Perman said seven essays had been sent in, which, considering the age of the com- petitors, reached a very fair standard of excellence. The winning essay was of a lively and interesting description of the various little incidents of the holiday written by "Dilys" (Miss Jones, Pennar School). PAINTING. There were five entries for the oil painting of a seascape, and the adjudicator awarded the prize to "Mermaid" (Mrs. Lewis), remark- ing that the drawing of the picture was very good indeed, and the colouring of sea and sky well in harmony. The second prize was given to Miss Miller. Six pictures were sent in for moun- tain scenery in water colours, and the com, petition was keen indeed The first prize was divided between Autumn" and Dorothy," identity not revealed. For crystoleum painting first prize was awarded to "Alberta" (Mrs R. H. Williams); 2, Mrs Roch. POEM. Principal Edwards in adjudicating on the poeiii "Eisteddfod," said that four poems had been received, two in English and two in Welsh. The four were fairly descriptive of the eisteddfod. He awarded the prize to Gwdion ab Don," who, he said, sang freely and joyously the praise of the eisteddfod. He had caught its spirit, and was led on by its genius. The other three had done well, but this was undoubtedly the best. BRUSH DRAWING. Under 15 years. Miss Annie Beynon, (Llanelly). Uifder 11 years, no entries. PHOTOGRAPHY. Both prizes were won by Mr. F. Treweeks, (Pembroke). DOMESTIC. Needlework-Tea cosy: 1, Miss Fanny Allen; 2, Miss H. McColl. Cushion square: 1, Miss Ethel Allen; 2. Miss F. Allen; special prize by Mayoress of Tenby, Miss A. Button. Neyland. Point lace: No first; 2. Mrs. Marie Le Flock. Linen sideboard: No first. Pair of slippers: 1, Miss Dorothy Eardley and Miss Evans (equal). Wool wrap or shawl: 1, Miss H. McColl; 2, Miss B. Williams and Miss Dilys Davies (equal). Knitted lace: 1 and 2, Miss H. McColl: extra prize Miss G Williams. Duchess cloth: 1, Miss Ethel Allen; 2, Miss A Button. Cookery-Loaf of bread: Miss Leonard. Fruit cake: Miss M. Hancock. THE SOLOS. Pianoforte solo (open), "Pathetique." Three competitors were selected from the preliminary tests. A common fault with most of the players was that they made the playing me- chanical by keeping time with their feet. There as no vitality in such music, said Mr. Evans, the pulsation of the music must be a matter of nerves. It made it too clock- worky, and it might have been turned out with a handle. There was also a lot more noise than was necessary. One of the com- petitors got excited and did not do herself justice. That of the first player was firm, strong, and steady and regular, and he should give her the award. The prize was accordingly awarded to Miss Eva Dalley, Pembroke Dock. The winner was trained by Mr. T. G. Hancock. Contralto solo, "Home song." Two competi- tors. The adjudicator remarked that the win- ner had a most promising voice, and her clear expression was commendable, though perhaps she had a little too much zeal. The prize was awarded to Miss Agnes Welch, Llanelly. Violin solo, Saltarelle." Exceptional talent was shown in this competition by the win- ner, Miss S. A. Williams, Llanelly, and the adjudicator remarked that be had seldom heard a better performance at an eisteddfod. Pianoforte solo, under 14 (County of Pem- broke), "Fairy ground." Miss Elsie Goddard, Pembroke Dock, pupil of Mr. T. G. Hancock. Pianoforte solo, under 14 (open), Morris Dance." Miss Elsie Goddard, Pembroke Dock, a pupil of Mr. T. G. Hancock. Bass solo, "Honour and arms." There were twenty competitors, and of these four were selected for the final test. All of these were excellent, and rendered full justio to Handel's stirring composition. The prize was awarded to Mr. David Lewis, Llandilo. Soprano solo, "Should he upraid." Miss Bonnell, Pembroke Dock. Tenor solo, "An evening song." The ad- judicator complained of the evenness of tone in the singing, and awarded the prize to Mr. Nath. Evans, Fishguard. Recitation, "The pipes of Lucknow." Miss Brace (Pembroke) and Mr. Cole (Tenby), equal. Recitation (junior), The battle of Blein- heim." Lizzie Davies (Llanelly). OPEN MALE VOICE COMPETITION. When the male voice competition came on the ball was filled, and some 5,000 persons must have been present. The test piece was I Crossing the plain," and the competing choirs were Carmarthen Male Voice (Mr. Dunn Williams), Carmarthen Orpheus Glee Society (Mr. P. R. Daniels, A.R.C.O.), Haverfordwest (Mr. J. Adams), Llandilo United (Mr. J. S. Davies), Mid Rhondda (Mr. Rees Jones), and Swansea and District (Mr. L. R. Bowen), but at the last moment Mid Rhondda scratched, as also did Haverfordwest. Mr. Harry Evans, in adjudicating, said that Mr. Jenkins and himself were very pleased with the competition. It had been a straight- forward competition, and had proceeded in the natural sequence, so that they had had no trouble from beginning to end. With re- gard to the winning choir (Swansea District), he said that they were a choir of picked voices, sympathetic, resonant, and reflecting all the emotions. Their singing as bright and dignified, and there was also the necessary cohesion and unity. The melody was ex- cellent throughout; when a climax was aimed at it was reached, not merely aimed at. It was a splendid performance. The second prize was awarded to Llandilo. CHIEF CHORAL COMPETITION. The test pieces were Lord, Thou alone art God," and 0 happy eyes." There were five entries, viz., Carmarthen Myrddin (Mr. J. W. Treharne), Fishguard and Goodwick (Mr. T. Anthony), Haverfordwest (Mr. E. Jones), Pembroke (Mr. A. Bevan), and Pembroke Dock (Mr. T. G. Hancock). Haverfordwest sang first, followed in turn by Pembroke Dock, Carmarthen Myrddin, Fishguard and Goodwick and Pembroke. Some of the competitors sang the chorus first, and others took Elgar's delightful part song first. There was quite a hush of expectation when Mr. Jenkins stepped forward to deliver his adjudication. He commenced by complimenting the com- mittee upon their choice of the tests, which he considered two admirable compositions for the purpose. Dealing with the first choir (Haverfordwest), he said that the tenors in both pieces sang slightly sharp, singularly enough without affecting the other parts, and too loudly, and this spoiled the effect. The choir sang the part song very nicely, but the accompaniment spoiled it. In the louder pieces the tenors were still sharp, and the so- pranos too prominent, aaid there was a want" of balance. The second choir (Pembroke Dock) was better balanced. The voices were more matured and better trained. They sang wonderfully well in the heavy chorus. They were not very pleased with the attack, which they considered a little bit too strenuous, and they thought that at the commencement it would have been better to have kept the choir down a trifle. It was strong singing from the start, and the choir stuck to it man- fully, and sank wonderfully well right through. "O happy eyes" was deLightfully done, with strict regard for expression and time. The tenors sang beautifully in the solo parts. The third choir (Carmarthen) sang the part song very sweetly. The chorus was too big a thing for the choir; it was too stupendous a task altogether. Fishguard sang 0 happy eyes very well on the whdie. Some parts were very sweet indeed, and the tenors did very nicely. With regard to the chorus, the choir did not stick to their guns. The intonation of the trebles was sharp. The adjudicators did not like the long drawn ratlentandos The Pembroke choir did very well in the part song, and the quality of the voices was fair, though there was a strenuousness about the contraltos that rather marred the harmony. It was too cadaverous, too sepulchral, and did not blend nicely in some parts. With regard to the chorus, the choir was too weak or weary to do it anything like justice. The adjudicators had come to the decision that the second prize should be awarded to the fourth choir (Fishguard), atid thte first prize to the second choir (Pembroke Dock). This decision was greeted with cheers, and Mr. Hancock was carried round the hall, when he descended the platform after receiving the baton. JUVENILE CHOIRS. The test piece was The Ocean Garden," and five choirs competed in the following order:—Coronation School (Mr. J. S. James), Gilgal (Mr. H. Dunvall), Pembroke (Mr. J. H. Canton), Pembroke Dock Lyric (Mr. H. Hinch- liffe), and Fishguard (Mr N .Evans). The first prize was awarded Pembroke, and the second Fishguard. With regard to the win- ners the adjudicator said that the high note:* were sung delightfully, whilst he remarked that the enunciation of the Fishguard choir was remarkably good. MALE VOICE COMPETITION (COUNTY). "On the Ramparts' was the test piece se- lected for this competition. Three choirs entered, but Saundersfopt, did not put in an appearance, and the contest was between Haverfordwest (Mr. J. Adams) and Neyland Bethsda (Mr. D. Phillips}, the former sing- ing first The adjudicator remarked that the rendering and interpretation of the composer's idea by Haverfordwest was good, and the in- terpretation fair though occasionally faulty. The second choir opened too fiercely. The solo tenor was too hard and throaty, and the cadences got a bit mixed. He had no hesi- tation in awarding the prize to Haverford- west. THE EVENING CONCERT. Some fine talent had been engaged for the evening concert, and the Mayor of Tenby (Coun. G. Thomas) presided over a very large attendance, including all the elite of the town and neighbourhood. In a brief speech his worship remarked that the object to which the proceeds were to be devoted was an excellent one, and assured them that the Nurses' Home deserved their help. With the suffering poor they had amongst them it was one of the grandest institutions they Had in the town. The artistes engaged were Miss Mabel Manson (soprano), Miss Mabel Braine (contralto), Mr. Anderson Nicol (tenor), Mr. Harry Dearth (bass), Mr. Spencer Dyke ivioliki), and i%iis, Edith Pratt, A.RA.M. (solo pianitk). The programriie was an excelieht one, and the apprciation of the- audience may be judged by the fact that the audience encored nearly every item. Undoubtedly the favourite of the evening was Mr. Harry Dearth, whose fine powerful voice was eminently suited. to the huge buiiding. He first sang "The arrfttv and the song" (Balfe), and being recalled gave a rollicking nautical song, "FOUT jolly sa ilormen," which earned salvoes of applause. Later on "The Lowland Sea" was' heartily rendered and he responded with Ho, Jerllv Jenkins," his spirited rendering tilly deserving the ap- plause it evoked. Miss Mabel Manson, the New Zealand sopranp, was encored for both her songs, "Roses" and "The Fairy Lullaby," responding with "Within a mile of Edin- boro' town" and "Jack and I." Her clear sweet voice was heard to most advantage in "The Fairy's Lullaby" (Needham), a dainty and melodious trifle, which the vocalist rend- ered perfectly. Miss Mabel Brain's powerful contralto voice was heard to best advantage in "The Three Fishers," which she sang with much dramatic force. She also sang The Banks of Allen Water," "Life's Thanksgiving," and Sing me to sleep." Mr. Anderson Niool was unfortunately suffering from a cold, and only sang one song—Sullivan's "The sailor's grave," though he joined with Miss Manson in the scena "Miserere," from Verdi's "11 Trovator." Miss Braine and Mr Dearth were encored for the duet, It was a lover and his lass," and the four vocalists united in the quartette, "The ciruntry dance," from H. Lane Wilson's "Flora's Holiday." The instrumental items were equally good. Miss Prattg' playing was brilliant, and Mr. Spencer Dyke's violin solos were very much enjoyed, both being loudly encored. A FEW FIGURES. The prize money offered amounted to £120, against £154 last year, and the entries num- bered just over 200 against 268 then. The subscriptions totalled R,100, as against £111, the receipts iEl65, as compared with P,199, whilst the concert brought in R.70, as compared with £102. The total number of persons visit- ing the eisteddfod was about 3,000, a decrease on last year. Last year there was a balance of R,121, and £68 was handed over to the Nursing Homes and Meyrick Wards It is hoped that this year, as the expenses in con- nection with the concert, etc., were I eqg, the proceeds will not be far short of the sum raised tweleve months ago.
• MR. SEYMOUR ALLEN'S HUNT. POINT-TO-POINT AT CRESELLY. Mr Seymour Allen's Hunt Point-to-Point races, which were held at Llandigwinett Farm, Creselly, on Thursday provided some excellent sport, and the weather being more like August than April the large number of spectators who were present spent a most enjoyable afternoon.
