On the Thursday (St. Davids Day) Mr John Hinds, M.P., was the- chairman at a great demonstra tion at Kingsway Hall, whils.t one of the lead- ing promoters of the St. Davids Day matinee organist at the Alhambra, was Dr William Lloy,d, another Carmarthen man. POTATOLESS CARMAHTHFN.-EXCept for a small quantity on the greengrocers' stalls, Carmarthen market was potatoless on Satur- day, not a single farmer having brought in supplies. There was a great scarcity in the shops in the town, some of the stocks of the tradesmen having been completely exhausted early in the week.
Local Weddings. KING—COLLIXS-DA VIES. On Thursday afternoon the 22nd ult., the wedding was very quietly solemnised of Mr David King, of Frondeg (of Messrs Ungood- Thomas and King, solicitors, Carmarthen) and Miss Ethel CdUins-Davies (youngest daughter of Mr and the late Mrs Collins-Da vies, of Hall street, Carmarthen). The ceremony took place at Zion Presbyterian Church, and the Rev Arthur Hughes, B.A., a personal friend of the bridegroom, officiated, in the presence of the Registrar (Mr F. Gwynne Lewis). Miss Nellie King attended the bride, and the bridegroom's partner (Mr I. H. Ungoed- Thomas) acted as groomsman. Mr King has been granted a commission in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, and left on Monday to take up his military duties.

i The Thames and the Oxford I College
i The Thames and the Oxford College. LECTURE AT COUNTY GIRLS SCHOOL. On Firiday evening a very interesting lantern lecture was given at the County Girls School, Carmarthen, by Mr H.

MEETING OF MANAGERS
MEETING OF MANAGERS. The monthly meeting of the managers of the Carmarthen County Schools was held at the Guildhall on Saturday. There were pre- sent: Messrs Charles Lloyd, M.A. (chairman), A. Fuller Mills, John bloyd, J. P. Lewis, Mrs Phillips, Mrs Jones-Davies, Mrs Blagdon- Richards, Miss Griffiths, and the Rev D. J. Thomas (Clerk).
WAR LOANS. The Clerk reported that he had received intimation that the t950 invested by the Committee had been placed in the 5 per cent. War Loan.
GARDEN PLOTS. A reply had been received from the owner j of the plot which the managers intended to convert into garden plots, agreeing to this being done. The Chairman suggested that the plots should be small ones, in order that they should stand a better chance of being pro- perly cultivated.
NATIONAL SERVICE. A circular letter was read from the Board of Education in which it was stated that all teachers under 31 years of age, and who had not been medically rejected, were expected to enrol for National Srvice, or that application be made to the local Tribunal for them to be allowed to remain on. The Clerk stated that there was. only one teacher who came under this category. The Chairman and Clerk were asked to see Mr Allen on the matter.
THE CARETAKER. The question of caretaker again came on, when it was stated that the cottage was not in a tenantable state of repair, and the Clerk was instructed to ask the architect to inspect it and report to the managers.

Carmarthen BoroughI Licensing Sessions
Carmarthen Borough Licensing Sessions. The adjourned licensing sessions for the Borough of Carmarthen were held at the Guildhall on Monday. There were present: The Mayor (Mr John Lewis), Mr Rees Davies, Mr W. SpunreH, Mr Daniel Lewis. Mr J. B. Arthur, Mr James Davies, Mr Hy. Howell, Mr E. Colby Evans, Mr H. E. B. Richards.
A WRONG IMPRESSION
A WRONG IMPRESSION. The Head Constable said that there seemed to be a prevalent impression amongst licen- sees that a single conviction did not justify the refusal of a license by the Bench. He did not agree with that. As a matter of fact some licenses died automatically in case of a single conviction. There had been a case of that sort in the town.
ANGEL HOTEL LAMMAS ST
ANGEL HOTEL, LAMMAS ST. The first case taken was that of the Angel Hotel, Lammas street (licensee, Mrs Anno Morgan). Mr Ramsbottom (clerk to the Magistrates Clerk), proved a conviction dur- ing the year far keeping open on Sunday. The Head Constable said that before the conviction and after it, the house had been well conducted. The license was renewed.
THE SHEAF INN
THE SHEAF INN. The second objection taken was that against the Sheaf Inn, Bridge street (licensee Mr T. Thomas). The Head Constable objected on the ground that there had been a conviction during the year, and that the license was redundant. He did not press the latter objection very strong- ly, as the house had very fair accommodation. Mr T. R. Ludford, solicitor, Llanelly, ap- peared for the owners (Felinfoel Brewery). He said that thee was stabling for ten horses; 30 to 40 meals a week were served there. The Head Constable suggested that the owners might get a new tenant. Mr Ludford suggested that it was very difficult to get men just now. Of course ttie owners would have to do whatever their wor- ships ordered. The license was renewed subject to a new tenant being put in.
THE THREE SALMON
THE THREE SALMON. The next objection taken was that of the Three Salmon. The tenant is Mr W uliam Thomas, and the owners Messrs Allsopp. P.C. Llewelyn proved the conviction tor selling before hours. Mr Wallis-Jones., who appeared for the licensee, said that the licensee had pleaded "guilty," and the offence had been com- mitted when he was at the market and I.;s wife was ill, and the house, in charge of a young girl. This was one of the most us dul houses in town; it had good accommodation. The license was renewed,.
THE WHITE HORSE
THE WHITE HORSE. The case of the White Horse, Priory street (licensee, Mr W. Barker) was next taken. The Head Constable proved a conviction during Mr Barker's tenancy. There was also a conviction against the licensee before Mr Barker became tenant. It was one of the few free houses. The owner is Mr A. Bii • mingham, of Dover. Mr Martin Richards appeared for M^rs Barker Morris and Owen, who are agents fir the owner. He asked if the Bench decided that the house should be derived of its license that it should be referred for compensation as it was unfair to deprive the owner of the license on account of the offence committed by tho licensee. If the license were renewed, Mr Barker would promise to conduct it pro- perly. The Head Gonsta,ble suggested that there should be a change of tenancy. Mr Richards said that it was difficult to got men to take houses now. A man who would give up work of national importance and take a public house was not the kind of man they would like to see keeping a public house. The license was renewed.
THE TANNERS ARMS
THE TANNERS ARMS. Mr Martin Richards appeared in the case of the Tanners Arms (tenant, Mr O. 1.1. Daies; owners, Messrs Buckley). He asked that the hearing be adjourned in order to enable Messrs Buckley to find a new tenant. The case was adjourned until the 26th of March.
THE VOLUNTEER STORES
THE VOLUNTEER STORES. Mr Martin Richards appeared in the case of the Volunteer Stores (tenant, Mr E. R. Lock; owner, Messrs Buckley). The grounds of objection wore redundancy and structural unsuitablity. Mr Richards sa,id that this house had bean objected to last year. He had asked the Bench to renew this license last year but he now saw the error of his ways and he did not ob- ject to its being referred for compensation. The Head Constable said that they were bound to give the evidence. He said that the present tenant is employed as ill collier. He gave details of the numerous public houses in the, neighbourhood. The street frontage is only 16 feet. Police supervision is very difficult, as two dwelling-houses have their back doors within three yards of the back door of the house. The yard is open and it is impossible to shut off communication. Mir Richards: You make no complaint of anything taking place at the back? Witness: No. They are most respectable people?—Yes. They are teetotallers?—I don't know. Mr Richards said that lie quite agreed that to have any back door even that of a teeto- taller opening on to the yard of a. public house is undesirable. The house was referred for compensation.
THE STAG AND PHEASANT
THE STAG AND PHEASANT. The case of the Stag and Pheasant (licensee Mr T. Rogers, who is also the owner) was then taken. Mr W. D. Williams (of the! firms of Messrs Walters and Williams) appeared for the licensee. The Head Constable objected on the ground that there had been a conviction in 1913, that the license was redundant, and that the pre- mises were unsuitable for a public house. Mr W. D. Williams asked if the Head Con- stable seriously pressed the other objections, or if he was prepared to let the house go for compensation on the ground of redundancy. The Head Constable said that lie agreed. He had, however, to give evidence.—In the course of the evidence, he said that the license included a room used as a decorator's shop. T'hetro were 11 licensed houses within 152 yards—The Ivy Bush Hotel, Queens Hotel Spread Eagle, Spirit Stores, King street, the Cresselly Arms, Marquis of Granby, Elephant and Castle, Green Dragon, No. 31, King st., Messrs Brigsstoeke and Mr C. Haydn Williams. Mr W. D. Williams said that this was one of Carmarthen's old houses. The present licensee had held it for 40 years. The license had been renewed three times since the con- viction in 1913. He asked them to renew the license, or to refer it for compensation. The house was referred for compensation.
THE HALF MOON
THE HALF MOON. The Head Constable objected to the Half Moon on the ground that it was not properlv conducted, and that the licensee is not a fit person. Mr J. F. Morris said that the licensee had left. He asked for an adjournment in order to enable certain arrangements to be com- pleted. An adjournment until the 26th March was arranged.

The Churches. The Rev E. H. Merchant, B.A., B.D., has arranged to begin work in his new charge at Tenby next April. Dr Moeiwyn Hughes, pastor of the C.M. Church, has accepted the call to Birkenhead and proposes to commence pastoral work before the end of this spring. The Rev Frederick Samuel, B.A., Man- chester, has accepted the call to. the pastorate of the English Baptist Church at Carmarthen. He is expccted to take up his dutios on Sun- day the 1st April. Mr D. Lewis Lloyd, B.A., son of Mr and Mrs Lloyd, The Avenue, Carmarthen, will be ordained by the Bishop of Llandaff on Sunday to the curacy of Hope, Wrexham. Mr Lloyd was educated at St. David's College, Lam- peter, and his many friends wish him every success in his new sphere of labour. The Rev Llewelyn Lloyd, Colwyn Bay, has been invited to the pastorate of the C.M. Church at Cardigan. His answer to the call has not to our knowledge yet been published. The Rev J. T. Job, Carneddau, is expected to oommeince duties at Pentowr Church be- fore the end of this month. # The Rev R. R. Davies, late pastor of the C.M. Church at Liandilo, now of VViikes- barre, one of the principal churches in the State, has been appointed president o the Pennsylvania Association. The rev. gentle- man has only been a couple of years in America. He was prepared for the Aber- ystwyth entrance exam, at the Old College School. < The weekly meeting of the Tabernacle C.E. Socierty took the form on the 22nd ult. of a "Consecration meeting," which is, to Chris- tian Endeavour Societies, what Communion services are to churches. There was a good attendance, over which Mr Herbert Rees again presided. The roll was called by the acting secretary, Miss Annie Evans, and those present responded by reciting verses, reading short passages, or singing. Mr Willie Thomas and friends rendered a quartette, and a party arranged by the treasurer (Mr 1. H. Ungoed- Thomas) sail an anthem, the solo parts being taken very effectively by Miss Gwen Hodges and Mr W. Thomas. Towards the close of the meeting Miss Annie Evans announced that her period of office as acting secretary of the society had come to an end, and that Mr T. J. Evans was again taking up the work. She thanked those who had helped her for their support, and trusted that they would extend the support to Mr Evans for the remainder of he session. On the motion of Mr T. J. Evans, seconded by Mr Herbert Roes, the hearty thanks of the Society were given to Miss Evans for the capable and very successful canner in which she carried out her duties. A farewell meeting was held on the 20th ult. at the Free Gospel Mission Hall to wish our old friend, Mr James John, God-speed on his departure from Carmarthen for Army Service. There was a large and representa- tive gathering of friends and admirers pre- sent. Addresses were delivered by a number of the workers, and also by His Worship the Mayor, who, in the course of his remarka conteded that all Christian young men should "join-up" and render all the service possible in the prosecution of this war. Mr John was from the opening of this mission one of its most energetic workers in every branch of the work and was for some consecutive years re- elected superintendent. During the evening the superintendent, Mr David Williams, on behalf of the workers and friends, presented Mr John with a purse of money, and expressed his appreciation of the services rendered by Mr John. Air W. Lane rendered very effec- tively the solo, "God will take care of vou and the chorus was warmly taken up by the congregation. God bless "Jim" and bring him back safely!
