The Perils of Stray Horses
The Perils of Stray Horses. DEFENCE OF THE REALM PROSECUTION POSSIBLE. The Carmarthen County Petty Sessions were held on Saturday before Major Dowdesweti (in the chair), Mr H. E. Blagdon-Richards, Mr John Lewis, Mr Thos. Lewis, and Mr J. W. Lewis. Henry Davies, an elderly main, was chargod with allowing his pony to stiay on the high- way at Llanstcplnan. The Chairman said that in this case the defendant might also be proceeded against under the Defenc of the Realm Act, as horses on the highway at night ought to carry lights. Supt. Jones said that the defendant found it cheaper to pay an occasional fine than to rent land to graze the pony. The Bench fined the defendant 5s. John Brown's Fair. CARTERS UP TO £100. There was a large ittondance at "John Brown's Fair" at Carmarthen on Monday, but the supply of stock on offer was much below tha;t generally seen at this fair.

Light horses were scarce at JE30 to £ 45, and the few cobs offered fetched zCl5 to L35. The cattle trade was slow. Prices were well maintained,, but farmers were unwilling to soli.

Llandilo Urban District Council
Llandilo Urban District Council, The annual meeting of this body was hold on Tuesday evening when there were present: Rev E. L. Jones, Dr Jones, and Messrs W. Hopkin, E. W. Evans, D. Morgan, J. R. Emns, Ben Hughes, W. L. Roberts, A. E. Harries, Hy. W. Jones, J. Stephens, J. H. IJees; the Clerk (Mr R. Shipley Lewis). I ELECTION OF CHAIRMAN AND VICEr CHAIRMAN. Mr D. Pritohard Davies, the retiring chair- man, said their lfirst duty was to appoint a chai,r,man.-A.ir D. Morgan moved that Mr J. R. Evans be appointed chairman. He had been their vice-chairman for the past year.— Mr Hy. W. Jones said their rule at that meet- ing to appoint a chairman pro tmi.—Rev E. L. Jones did not think it was necessary to carry out that rule.—MrTF. H. Rees We have been taking that course.—Rev E. L. Jones It ils never too late to amend.—Mr Hy. W. Jones withdrew his objection.—Mr D. Morgan resuming said that Mr J. R. Evans had been a useful member. He trusted his year of office would be a successful one. Mr Evans was an old friend of his. He deserved the highest position on the Council. He had helped him (Mr Morgan) to take the most daring step he had takon in his iife, being best man in his wedding (laughter). He believed he would carry out his duties with dignity and atiooces.-imr J. Stephens had pleasure in seconding.—Mr J. R. Evans, iin assuming the chair, thanked them very much for the honour they had done him in asking him to take the chiair for the ensuing year. It had taken him rather unprepared. It reminded him of a remark about a well-known politician. He was asked how he came to meet his wife and his reply was that he had never met her but overtook her. He (Mr Evans) said that in the same way the position of chairman had over- taken him. He was not well versed in Coun- cil work, but he hoped with their assistance to merit their confidence. At one time he thought that it was only one chairman was possible—the late Mr Griffiths, but under the present plan of electing a chairman each year the work was carried on all the same. and if anything it was much improved, especially with regard to the discussions, and in that respect the Council had made strides for the better. The next duty was the appointment of a vice-chairman.—Rev E. L. Jones rose to propose Mr A. E. Harris. The Chairman had told them of a certain fate having overtaken a certain man. He hoped it would overtake hian (laughter). He thought the Chairman would have a good supporter in Mr Harris.— Mr D. (Morgan seconded. Mr Harris and he did not. always see eye to eye, but on the prin- ciple of seniorty he seconded the motion. tie (Mr Harris) had been a faithful member of the Councili.—iMr Harris in reply said he was so unwell that if it was not a special meeting he wouldi not have been there that ni,gl)t.N.Ir D. Morgan: This will cure you (laughter.)— Mr Harris went on to say he was very grateful for the kind remarks made of him. Chairmen were born not made. He felt intense interest in the town and was a heavy ratepayer. He did not come to the Council from an ambitious point of view. He was grateful for being elected to the ehaij* becnuap it nnnnimnnc Ho hoped to be a good understudy to the chairman. He thought the Council was going to redeem its character. He alluded to the last five or six vmm.-Mr Ben Hughes was glad to see the Council had seen its way to go back to its former policy of electing the chair- man by seniority. They had been treating the rule as a scrap of paper. Some gen He- men were anxious for the chair. He was very pl-eased they had at last adherecf to the seniority rule. He hoped it was the diawn of better things.—The Chairman then proposed a vote of thanks to the retiring chairman, who was not a many of many words, but he did things that never appeared on the records. He had been very faithful in the chair and in his attendance at committees, and also at the presentation meetings. He had always been willing to help. He had no doubt that Mr Pritchard Davies wonld be very useful to him during the year he held office.—Mr D. Mors;;an seconded. Mr Davies and ho had not always seen eye to eye, but he had alwavs been a good sport. He was always fearless and they were all perfectly satisfied that he had made a splendid chairman. He had had a very busy year 'and had upheld the dignity of the chair in every way. He had had the pleasure of attending the deputation with him to London the other day about the County Court and the position of chairman he (Mr Morgan) felt could not be in better hands. He (Mr Mor- gan) thought the town was very much in- debted to Mr Divies for the painstaking way in which he conducted the business of the town.—In reply Mr D. P. Daviies said he did not thinik he was worthy of all the kind things said about him. What he had done he had done conscientiously and would always look back with pleasure to his year of office. There had been lot of un n,iil dmvnc hilt. VIA Vmfl always had the support of the Council. He did not think there had been an unpleasant word during the year. They had never had a "bust up." He thanked them again for their kind remark's. COMMITTEES. There was a long discussion over the ejec- tion of various committees.—Mr D. Morgan wanted to elect them en bloc, but subseqeunt- ly saw that the plan would not work. One of the members of the committee, Mr Jen- kins, who was in the Army, was away, and another, Mr Claude Davies, was far away.— Mr D. Morgan: Or further away (laughter). SUNDRIES1 It was decided to levy a rate of 2s in the ? for the current quarter. Mr Hy. W. Jones drew attention to the scarcity of seed potatoes in the town and over this there was a good deal of talk, whilst Mr J. Stephens initiated a, discussion of a pro- longed character on the state of the main road in the town.—Estimates for the current year were adopted.

Trevor, Davies by Mr D. Pritchard Davits, chairman of the Urban District Council. Both recil)- ients suitably acknowledged the gifts.—— the close of the service at the Memorial Hall English Congregational Church on Sunday evening Pte. Percy Hancock was the recipient of a present. In the absence of the pastor, the D. P. Roberts, M.A., B.D., the chair was occupied by the Rev T. Hennas, Rhos- macn. who had that day conducted the ser- vices. He expressed regret at the pastor's absence arid the pleasure it gave him to take part in the prceo iiings and spoke a f/\v eW coiiiragiing words to Pte.. Hancock. Mr W • Thomas,. Crescent xiov.se, expressed his plea- sure in taking part in the, proceedings. Cnly those who ns parents ha; sons at the Fron^ knew the anxiety they experienced. They could not do too much for their young nu-»' who were in the Army, aud of whose suffer- ce 110 ings they had no conception. He wished Pto. Hancock God speed. Mr J. Pieton spoke 111 the same strain. They were all indebted to the young men who were fighting their battles and those of them, like Mr W. Thomas alio L himself, who were too old for the Army, were quite willing to do what national service thoý could. Sergt. W. 0. Stephens. D.C.M-' pointed out that the cheery spirit that pto- Hancock showed proved tll 't he had in hill the true soldier spirit. Mr D. Morgan ex- pire; cd gratification at seeing the young nvefl connected with that church returning houle afer being in the army with their morals ill1' tainted, and Pte. Hancock amongst them. 1 showed they had grit in them and were ablc to resist the temptations inevitably connect?" with the Army. The present was handed oV^T to Pte. Hancock bv Mrs Morgan, who said that nobody knew Pte. Percy Hancock out- side the family better than she did, and sM had great pleasure on behalf of the Town 0 f Llandilo in presenting him with a small ttkllil of the appreciation of its inhabitants for whaj lie had done for them and she hoped he would return unscathed and a credit to them alj' Pte. Hancock thanked them all for the kind' nesss shown to him. What lie had done w

St. Davids Easter Vestry. OALLS FOR POSTPONEMENT OF p- DISlEN DO WMEN T. The Rev Griffith Thomas (Vicar) presidii1^ over the St. David's vestry at Carmarthen oJ} Monday evening, said the least the Govei'i1' merit could do was to postpone the operatioJ1 of the.

Th" RelY William Evans, M'.A., proposed that message be sent to Llandovery urging the to take the Associa,tion in June for the bl- centenary celebration of Williams, of Panty colyn, and the resolution was carried unani- mously.
