The cost of the bridge was estimated not to exceed 270. It was also required that the inhabitants of the neighbourhood should contribute one-third Of -tht- cost and the Councils of Aberystwyth and Tregaron to contribute the remaining one-third between them in equal shares.—A letter was also received from the Parish Council calling attention to the state of the bridge, as well as Abernant footbridge.—It was agreed to appoint a Committee to meet the representatives of other councils and discuss the arrangements for contribu- tions.

Davies (Doithie) urjged that; another attemnt should be made to secure a new road to Abergwessin. It would be a great advantage to the union if the road was made passable for traffic. -Several members pointed out that the estimated cost of repairing the road was £ 28,000 which was excessive, and that it would be unwise to proceed further in the circumstances.—The Rev. T. R. Davios; We must not make the union bankrupt — The matter then dropped. Comforts for the Troops. The matter then dropped. Comforts for the Troops.

Davies i said there were many houses in the district which were unfit and if the houses were closed there was nowhere for the occupiers to go to. The only way out of the difficulty was to provide houses. — Mr. Thomas Morgan agreed that the Council must build suitable workmen's houses.—Mr Timotliv Evans said it would be a serious matter if all the unfit houses were closed and the people turned out to the road. In one case the notices served by the Inpsector had l>een ignored and it wns agreed that he should, interview the owner and ascer- tain if the Council had power to carry our the necessary repairs at the owner'* expense.

Eighteen persons were convicted for drunkenness, the same num- ber as in the previous year. There were thirteen parishes with a population of 2,962 without a public house. Replying to the Bench, Supt. Phillips said the police did not suggest a reduction in the number of public houses this year. As the magistrates knew. five licences in the county had been referred for compen- sation. but there was a deficiency of P,650 in the fund and the levy for the present rear was only a quarter of the maximum. Therefore it would take a long time -before aU the houses already referred would be connwnsated. All the licences were renewed A charge of drunkenness against Richard Thomas, labourer, Pciit-m-aig.

The great majority of cases against publicans were dismissed— the Newcastle Emlyn Bench having made for itself a notorious name in that respect. A resolution was passed protesting against the action of the Cardiganshire Coinpen- i sation Authority in reducing the levy from the maximum to twenty-fire per cent. and urging the Home Secretary to use his power to ensure the levying of the ful" amount. Death.—Mrs. J. Howells. a widow living alone in Lloyd s-tcrrace. was found by the neighbours on Saturday morning dead, with her face in the fireplace badly burned. Deceased is supposed to have fainted and fallen into the fire.
PONTRHYFENDIGAIB Funers.—The remains of the late Mr. Thomas Richards, Post Office. whose death was anounced last week, were interred at the Abbey Churchyard on Saturday. The long period of residence which the deceased had spent in the district, and his business connections, drew together a huge con- course of relative and friends. After a short and appropriate se..vic-c, at the house, the procession wended its way to the Abbey Churchyard. The three oldest deacons of the Methodist Chapel, and the deceased's bosom friend. Mr. Daniel Jones, Cartref, acted as bearers. Councillor James Evans, Mr. R. S. Griffiths. J.P,. and Dr Morgan had arrived from Olydach Vale to pay their last tribute of respect to their frieud, and Mr David Morgan, Rhydfen House, trav- elled from Liverpool for the same purpose. Mrs. Edwards, 'lhe Laurels, Aberystwyth, and her son, as well as scores of others from Tregaron, Swyddffynon, Ystrad Meurig, and Ysbytty districts were present. The Rev.

Evans, Clydach Vale: Mrs. Protheroe and her two sons, Mr. Theophilus Richards and Mr. Tom Richards, Cemmaes; Tom Theophilus Rees. Cemmaes; Mrs. John T. Richards and Miss Nellie Richards, Bont.

Bont will miss a character somewhat uniform and yet unique. The family desire to acknow- ledge gratefully the sympathy which has NlI extended to them in the hour of their trial.

lDeath of the Marquess of Londonderry
lDeath of the Marquess of Londonderry. We regret to announce that the death of the Marquess of Londonderry took place at Wynyard Park on Mon- day. Lord and Lady Londonderry returned home from their Irish residence, Mount Stewart, County Down, to Wynyard Park at the end of January. Subsequently the Marquess had an attack of sciatica, but was making fav. ourable progress till the beginning of last week when he caught a chill. His con- dition was not considered serious till the week-end when pneumonia supervened. On Sunday the patient's condition had become serious and the family were summoned, including his son and heir, Viscount Castle- reagh, M.P. for Maidstone, who was in France serving on the staff of one of the generals. During the night the condition of Lord Londonderry became worse, and"he passed peacefully away at half-past nine o'clock in the morning. There were present at the time Lady .Londonderry, his daughter, the Countess of llchester, and Loru. Herbert ane-Teinpest. Viscountess Allendale arrived shortly afterwards, and Lord Castlereagh. was expected on Monday evening. The utmost grier was exhibited on the Wynyard Estate, where the late Mar; quess was held in the greatest affection as a model landlord and employer; also in the adjoining boroughs 01 Stockton and Thornaby-on-Tees, with the public life of which he had been closely associated during the greatest part of his life. Flags were flown half-mast on all the public buildings; and hundreds of -telegrams of condolence have been received by Lady Londonderry including messages from the King and Earl j Kitchener. A pedigree of full twenty-four descents, a great territorial •yiher^ance, and ? name interwoven with the historic events of the counties of Vork and Durham com- bine." says fcir liernard uurke, ''to entitle Lite Tempests to a very high place on the roll of tHe nobility of jngiana." Through his grandmother, Lady Frances Vane- Tempest, the second wife of the third Marquess, Lord Londonderry was descended from Sir Piers Tempest, who fought under Henry V. at Ag.ncourt. The second Marquess, known to history as Viscount I astlereagh, was Lord Londonderry's kinsman. The late Peer s grandfather was the Duke of Wellington's companion in arms in the Peninsula War and was after- waids ambassador at iV^nna. Sir Charles' (Siiewiart Vane-Tempest- Stewart, sixth Marquess of Londonderry, was born in London in Juiy, 1852. His father was the fifth Marquess, his mother being the only daughter and heiress of Sir John Edwards, Plas Machynlleth, Mont- gomeryshire. He was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford, and, as Viscouut Castlereagh. represented County Down in the House of Commons from 1878 to 1884, when he succeeded to the Mar- quessate. Two years later, after the defeat of Mr Gladstone's first Home Rule Bill and Lord Salisbury s accession to office., Lord Londonderry became lord lieutenant of L eland, but without a seat in the Cabinet. The times were stormy. Nationalist feel- ing had been much embittered by the failure of Mr. Gladstone's measure, and Lord Londonderry's position, therefore,, was not an easy one. But, an Irishman by descent, with sevral Irish titles and much Irish property including his fine place near Xewtownards, County Down, he knew the part he had to play, and he played it in such a way as to earn the respect and personal good feeling even of those who were most opposed to his Unionist views. In 1875 he married Ladv Theresa Olietwy nd-Talbot, daughter of the ninetenth Earl of Shrewsbury, a lady as talented as she was1 beautiful. Lord and Lady Londonderry did their best to foster Irish trade and gave their support, to many worka of charity and benevolenee. Having served as "viceroy for thrtje years, Lord Londonderry resigned that position so as to be able to devote his attention to the many important undertakings of which he was at the head. Besides being a great landowner he was a large colliery pro- prietor in Durham, possessing a harbour, ships, and at one time a railway of his own; also a big coal merchant's business in London. The conduct of those vast concerns occupied much of his time, and eventual'y he felt it desirable to dispose of his railway—which connected Sunderland and Seaham Harbour—and also to hand over to a company the retail coal business. The railway was acquired by the North- Eastern Company, and its carriages ceased to bear the Londonderry crest which had hitherto been their distinguishing mark. The title of the Marquess inscribed in letters of gold on the fronts of coal waggons soon ceased to be a familiar feature of the London streets. He was a frequent speaker in the House of Lords, mainly on Irish matters, and came to be regarded as one of the principal spokesmen of the Irish landlords on the Land Act of 1895 and other measures affecting their interests. In 1895 he became chairman of the London School Board, a position which he retained till 1898. Two years later, when the Duke of Norfolk retired from the Government so that he might fight for his country as a yeomanry officer in South Africa, lie was succeeded in the Postmasters-Generalship by Lord Londonderry who entered the Cabinet for .the first time. When Mr. Balfflur became Prime Minister in 1902 and established the Board of Education he made Lord Londonderry its first president. The experience he had obtained on the London School Board helped to fit him for a post which proved to be exceptionally difficult owing to the action of the Passive Resisters in England and to the Welsh county council revolt against the operation of the Education Act of 1902. So deter- mined did some of the local authorities in Wales appear in their efforts to prevent the due carrying out of that measure that it was necessary to pass a Local Authorities (Default) Act to strengthen the hands of the Board of Education in dealing with them. In 1905 Lord Londonderry under- took the duties of Lord President of the Council in addition to those of Minister for Education, and he continued to fill the two offices tdl Mr. Balfour's Government came to an end at the close of 1905. Lord Londonderry played a leading part in the great Ulster movement to which Mr. Asquith's Home Rule scheme gave rise. He was a member of the commission which drew up the constitution for a provisional government for Ulster and was the second to affix his signature to the covenant, the first- tn- sign having been Sir Edward Carson. Prom the beginning he was prom- inently identified with the Ulster Volunteer Force. He did his part nobly in encourag- ing his workmen to enlist. At the begin- ning of the war he issued a circular to his 8,000 men at the Seahain, Dawdon, and Silksworth Collieries and various other works in the county of Durham, intimat- ing that, in addition to the provision of house or rent and coal free of charge, he would make allowances to the families and dependents of all the men on active ser- vice. and that the places of all such men would he kept open for them. Always a keen sportsman, Lord London- derry hunted a pack of harriers as a boy, and when twenty,took over the mastership of the Hurworth Foxhounds. He was one of the first civilians to take up polo on its introduction into England and was an original memlier of the Hurlingham Club Committee, the governing body of the game. As the owne- and breeder of race- horses Lord Londonderry was best known in the sporting world. At Wynyard Park he maintained '1 choice stud of brood mares, and in his efforts to breed winners from them was ably assisted by Lady London- derry who is an acknowledged authority on the science of bloodstock breeding. Appointed aide-de-camp to the King in Lord Londonderrv was one of the two Irish peers whom King Edward and Queen Alexandra honoured with vsits during their first tour in Irelan after his Majesty's accession, the other being the Marquees if T ansdowne. He had been a knight of the Garter since 1888. For a time he served as n county alderman of Durham, and was deputy lieutenant, of Durham and Mont- gomeryshire and lord lieutenant for County Down and for Belfast. In May, 1911., TIe was unanimously elected to the presidency of Four-in-hand Driving Club Lord Londonderry is succeeded i" the title by bis eldest son, Viscount. Castle- rcardi M.P for who is married ¡ to Edith, daughter Henry Chaplin. His ether surviving child is the Countess of Tlchester. Members of the House of Commons heard the news of the death of the Mar- quees of Londonderry with profound regret. ELe was a frequent visitor to the lobby, and was in the Peers Gallery during most of the im- portant debates, especially if they had reference to Ireland. The late Marquess was connected by marriage with an old Welsh family, his mother being the daughter and heiress of the late Sir John Edwards. In 1896 the late King Edward, then Prince of Wales, with the Princess, stayed at Plas Machyn- lleth for several days on the occasion of the installation of the Prince as chancellor of the University of Wales. King George and Queen Mary, with the Prince of Wales and Prinoess Mary, stayed there in 1911, at the time of the royal visit to Aberyst- wyth, their host on that occasion being Lord Herbert Vane Tempest. The sad news of the death of the Marquis of Londondery was received at Machynlleth on Monday morning by the following telegram from Lord Herbert Vane-Tempest to Mr. Richard Gillart. Lord Londonderry passed away 9-30 this morning." On the occasion of his cominq of age, in 1873, the late Marquis visited Machynlleth where the event was celebrated with great rejoicings. The Clock Tower was erected to commemorate the event and trees were planted in Maengwyn-street and other parts of the town.
