CAMP NOTES. PARK HALL. I General Kempster, inspecting officer of Terri- torial units, visited the various battalions last weem and saw the B?n &c their work. At the close or his inspection, he expressed himself h.gnly satisfied with the work of the men and the progress that had. been made since his last Vla-l. The. Agricultural Produce Society, which is snder Government control, will open a centre here ou Fr.a.ay, This Society is noc worked far a pro- fit, but aikns at benefiting the troops by supply- ing; vegeta-bles to the officer in c haa-g-o of messing I as each battalion at. reduced prices. The Society buys the produce wholesale, locally, thus ensuring fresh and good supply. These centres are or- ganioe-dby the Army Canteen Committee, and, I believe, that the one here is she t:h'ird that has been opened "-11 the country. « a « « The camp hospital, where all the sick men in t'åmp will be treated, and where probably Expedi- tionary men will be taken in, was opened on Friday afternoon, when officers and their friends To the number of 450, invited by Lieut.-Col. Avedl, V.D., the ojEoar in charge, were ?howa found and enterta ined to tea. Mrs. i;.vmgstone. wta of Major LivmgstOne, acted as hostess. The j hospital is the Tory last word in ev&ry way, a.U i the appliances being of the latest pattern, and the arrangements of the best. There is plenty of light, air and space, and everything that is pcs- ii-ble in the way of science and skill will be done to alleviate suffering. I am told that when every- th ug- is in working order, 'there wall be 10 resi- dent doctors, and that the nursing staff will vii,irni,-el, 32, including matron, sisters,, nunse.s, and J V.A.D nurses. There will be 100 N.C.O/s and men of the R.A.M C. as orderlies. There are j eight wards with 50 beds in each, and five special j wards for serious cases, with one bed in each. It I is possible that canvas may be erected to increase t the accommodation, while pht-hiacal patients wul be treated in the open air. The # officer*' ward ha.3 30 beds, andti s very nicely equipped, one end being furnished as a sitting-room. Each ward has two bafthjooma attached, a ward kitchen, and a nurse's room, with telphone communioation to all patrrg of the building. All the wards are illuminated with electric light, and, in addition, there as a standard light for every two beds. Over each bed there is a religious label, made of a square pieoe of tin. These labels, being of dif- lererit colours, will enable a visiting chaplain to find the men belonging to his own. particular church. The tried squares signify a Church of England patient; white, a Catholic; yellow, a Presbyterian; blue, a Wesleyan; and green, all ether "denominations. The hospital is hearted by afovcs. The steward's store where the "dry" goods are kept, is an interesting ckepartmenit, and even games for the patients, such m draught boards and counters, etc., are to be found here.

II REPUTATION MADE IN I LLANGOLLEN I
REPUTATION MADE IN I LLANGOLLEN. I Questionable methods can't succeed in Llan- gollen. Honest worth is all that counts, and when Llajigollen people know of something good, they tell their neighbour about it. It is just these facts that have made the repu- tation which Doan's have here. Read what 1 j another of your neighbours says, and why the evidence is given. Mrs. S. Mathias, of 3, Arnon Terrace, Abbey Road, Llangollen, says :On and off for years I have been subject to attacks of kidney trouble. The pains took me suddenly in my back, and I often found it very difficult to bend. My head, too, was painful, and dizzy feelings made me feel tired and languid with but little energy. "Other symptoms indicated the complaint, but I am pleased to say that I had great benefit from Doan's backache kidney pills. I had seen these advertised strongly as an effective remedy and I proved them to be so. They relieved me of the i pains splendidly and put me right in other re- spects. I heartily recommend them for all kid- ney disorders. (Signed) S. Mathias." Doan's backache kidney pills relieve congestion and inflammation of the kidneys, and promote a free flow from the bladder, so that the uric acid poison which causes rheumatism, backache, gravel, urinary disorders, and so many other complaints is flushed out of the system.

Ar ol cyfiawni'r weithred ffodd y cyhuddedig, ac ar ol chwilio yn ddyfal am agos i wythnos fe'i daliwyd ger Rhaiadr, I sir Faesyfed, wythnos i neitliiwr, a bu ymdrech galed rhvngddo a dau o heddweision. C'lyd- wyd Davies yr 1^11 noswaith mewn modur i Landeilo. Yr oedd golwg difrifol arno. Yr oedd ei ddillad wedi eu tori mewn rhai marmau. Pan ddadth o'r eerbyd tynodd ei gap droa ei lygaid a rhoddodd goler ei got yn uchel am ei wddf rhag i bobl lygadrythu arno. Ar ol derbyn tystiolaeth yr heddgeidwad, gohiriwyd yr achos am wyth niwrnod. Bu Davies, dyn ieuanc 34ain oed, am ddeuddeng mis yn Ngholeg Aberystwyth yn astudio amaethvddiaeth.

Daliai Mr. Haydn Jones fod cais y Llywodraeth o sicrhau 6,000 o aceri yn hollol anigonol. Dywedodd fod digonedd o dir i'w gael yng Nghymru. Cynygiodd Mr. E. T. John welliant y dylai Cymru gael cyfranogi o'r arbrawf trwy gael 2,000 o aceri o'r tir angenrheidiol ar gyfer y trefedigaethau. Talodd Mr. John deyrnged o glod i Mr. Bathurst am y gwaith gyflawnodd ynglyn a'r mater hwn, ac am ei gydymdeimlad a daliadau Cymru. Gwnaed cyfeiriad at Sir Fon. Pe ceid adran orfodol ynglyn a'r mesur hwn, fel y dylai, credodd y eeSid cael tir rhagorol yn sir Fon. Deallodd i fferm fawr o 750 aceri yn sir Forganwg gael ei chynyg i'r amcan yma. Er fod Cymru i raddau mawr yn wlad o fanddaliadau, y mae digonedd o dir ynddi lie nad oes ddigon o lafurio arno. Yr oeddynt yn benderfynol o fynu cael triniaeth arbenig i Gymru ynglyn ag amaethyddiaeth, a dyna y cam cyntaf yn y mater. -Cefnogwyd y gwelliant gan Syr Herbert Roberts.

PRIVATE ITHEL DAVIES
PRIVATE ITHEL DAVIES. "POET AND IDEALIST." CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTOR" COURTMARTIALED. On Fr-dav there was a sequel to questions asked in the House of Commons on May 30 by Nlr. Llewellyn Williams, Member for Car mar- then, with regard fto the alleged ill-treatment of a Montgomeryshire "conscientious objector," when Pte. Ithel Davies, aged 22, of the 4th R.W.F., was tried by court-martial at Park Hall Camp, Oswestry, with refusing to obey the orders of his superior officers. The case was heard in a room at the Brigade Offices, a.nd the only civilians present were the accused's solicitor, a witness for tine defence, and Prese representa- t i ves. The Court was composed of Major R. G. YatB, President., 1-1 Sic Herefordshire Regiment, Capt. and Adjutant F. T. Nott, 1-lst Henefords., and Capt. G. K. Pa.rkei. 1.7tli Royal Welsh Fusiliers. Capt. Davies, 4th R.W.F.. prosecuted, and accused was represented by Mr. J. Pentir Williams, solicitor. Bangor. Accused, whose home is at Glanrafon. Tafalog, Montgomeryshire, appeared before the Mach- ynlleth local tribunal as a "conscientious objec- tor," and his appeal was dismissed. He carried his case to the County Appeals Tribunal, who certified him for non-combatant service. On April 25 he was charged at Machynlleth with failing to report himself under the Military Ser- vice Act, and the magistrates fined him JS2 and ordered him to be handed over -To the military authorities. After hearing the evidence for 'the prosecution, Mr. Pentir Wdl ams said that the facts were not disputed, and ihe only desired ito call a witness as to accused's character. The accused first of all handed in a written ,e,uteinez 't-, which was read by the President. In it, Davies &taJted that he objected on conscien- tious grotunda to all militairy work, combatant or iion-combatant. He had refused to take the military declaration, and he claimed that as a con- scientious objector be was entitled by Act of Parliament, to be exempt from such work. Hit had complied with all that he was required by law to do as a conscientious objector. His father had a large farm, and he (accused) was willing and anxious to return there and engage in what he considered to be work of national importance. He was charged with disobeying the lawful com- mand of his superior oiffcer, which did not apply to hiim, because, although he was in uniform, 'he waa not a, but a civilian. He t >If. d his objection on the definite Christian nel:«f of love and b:>Ot:herhood, and he would rfbfr de a martyr's death than "betray the spirit with n The statement proceeded to quote copiously from the Bible in justification of his (Pte. Dav'es'4) "conscientious objection." The Rev. R. E. Davies, Congregational pas-tor at Car m el, Llanllechdd, near Bangor, said he had known accused from child- hood, amd he had always borne an exemplar character. Davies was a very serious, thoughtful I voung; man, "a poet and an idealist," and he be- lievea he was prepared to suffer anything for jj his religious convictions. He believed he would | suffer ctea'th rather than be unfaithful to his j idieals. The President: What sect does he belong to?- J| Witness: He is a. CongregatrcnaLst. Do all Congregationalists hold the same 1 scruples?—No, they are a free body. If a man .1 believes in God and accepts the Bible teaching, he is allowed to explain that teaching according to his own convictions. There are 53 members of my own church who are at present fighting. Witness added that he had never known accused guilty of violence. The accused refused to call any military witnesses as to his alleged ill-treat- ment- at Mold, because he did not, wish them to be punishjed. Ca;pt? Nott: Their name* ,ver mentioned in Parliament; why cannot you mention them here? î The Pt esident: I am quite amxious to hear all that can possibly be adduced by the defence, but I do not think this will help us here.' Replying to a question, Capt. Davies said ac- cused was simply sent to the Regiment as an ordinary sioldier. Mr. Pentir Williams said after that statement it seemed quite clear there had been sortie mis- understanding in that cage. Accused had been put to ordinary military duties, whereas ihe was clearly exempted from combatant service by the Montgomeryshire Appeals Tribunal. He did not know who was responsible for that. Certainly, the military authorities ought to have been ac- quainted, and if they had been acquainted ac- cused would not have been puc to the work he had been asked to undergo. Shortly, the facts were that this young man had a conscientious objection to military service of all kinds, and although that was not recognised by the local tribunal, it was by the County Appeals Tri- bunal; and it was a great pity they did not go further than they did and exempt him altogether as long as he was engaged on national work. Of Course, that Court had nothingto do with that- they could only consider, he took it, how far accused's scruples would affect their sentence. However much they might disapprove of those scruples, the fact remained that accused held them, and they had bean recognised by the law of the land and had been exempted from com- batant service. He submitted that accused's re- fusal to obey military orders was not actuated bv malice, lie had frequently noted that young men often held extreme views, which, when they became older, they sometimes modified. His father had a farm of over 1,000 acres, and only two men working' there, and accused considered it would be more in the national interest- t he were allowed to return home and assist. The pident: I do not know whether tha decision of the County Appeals Tribunal should be sent to the military authorities? M.r. Pentir Williams: First of all, it would bi semt by the Appeals Tribunal to th » Local Tri. bunal, who should acquaint the military repre- sentative. One was sent to the accused. The President (to accused): When you W-t. called up, did you produce it to LIe mnmry authorities ?—No, sir. You should have done so; but we have only to deal with you for disobeying orders. It .a not our duty to decide whether you are a conisoien- fcious objector or not. You should have steps before to prove thIS. Asked as to accused's charae*>r, Capt. Davies awd that on June 4 Pte. Davios was to 112 daYd' hard labour for r-fusng to go on parade; but this was sutM>J-.iu-34vlay commuted to 28 day@. detention :11 t-arracks by the J ué g.
