The new constitution of the National Council was referred to the Emergency Committee, their suggestions thereon to be submitted to the Executive. The Execu- tive was also directed to arrange visits to all the church meetings in the district -during the latter part of September. Ap Plenydd appeared before the Council, on behalf of the Lleyn and Eifiionydd Temperance Associa- tion to ask the Council to use its influence in securing a band of hope in -connection with each church and that tem- perance in some of its aspects should be given a place at each meeting. A resolu- tion to that effect was unanimously carried. The question of inviting the North Wales Federation to hold its annual meet- ings at Portmadoc next year was discussed. It was unanimously resolved to renew the invitafion to the Federation, with the re- servation that it was hoped the breach between the National Council and the Welsh Union would have been healed before then. The rest of the meeting was taken up by a further discussion on the Rev. J. H. Shakespeare's suggestions for a closer union between the several denominations, which was opened by Mr. Gwaenog Rees. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded Mr Rees for his remarks and also for the effee- tive way in which he filled the chair during the year. It was resolved to continue the discussion at the next meeting, the Rev. Morris Thomas, B.A. to open the debate.

Pinned by Motor Car. A CRICCIETH FATALITY. Mr. 0. Robyns Owen, coroner for South Carnarvonshire, held 'an inquest on Satur- day at Criccieth into the death of Mr. Charles Johnson, proprietor of the West End Boarding House, Marine Parade, Criccieth. It appeared from the evidence, that Mr Johnson was putting up his motor car in the garage on Wednesday evening, and was assisted by his brother-in-law, Mr. V. Watkin. Mr. Johnson was standing in front of the car and Mr. Watkin was steering when his foot slipped off the clutch; causing the car to jump, pinning Mr. Johnson against the wall, crushing his leg terribly below the knee. Death from shock resulted on Saturday. Evidence was given by Mr. V. Watkin, and Dr. Livingstone Davies. The Jury, to whom Mr. Walter Jones, Erw, was foreman, returned a verdict of "Death from shock," adding that it was a pure accident and no blame was attached to anyone. Deceased, who was forty years of age, coame to Criccieth from West Bromwich a few months ago, and leaves a widow and one child to whom the Coroner and jury returned their sympathy.
Deudraeth Sessions. DISORDER IN HARLECH. The monthly petty sessions were held on Thursday at Penrhyndeudraeth before Dr. R. T. Jones, in the chair; R. Jones Morris, T. Lloyd Pritchard, R. Bowton, W. H. Jackson, and Robert Richards, Esqrs. Fighting in Harlech. John Rees Williams, Bronclogwyn, Harlech, carrier, Emanuel Jones, the Mill, Harlech, labourer: and Rees Jones, Llechwedd Cyntaf, Harlech, labourer, were summoned by P. C. Nathanial Davies for fighting in Harlech on May 6th. < Emanuel Jones, who did not appear, wrote admitting a quarrel with R-oos Jones, but said lie was not to blame. P.C. Davies said the three defendant-! fought on the street at ten at night. Rees Jones, who witness said was giving 'a lot of trouble, was using bad language. Regarding the other two, they were always quiet and peaceful and had rendered assistance to the police on several occasions. Replying to the Chairman, witness said Rees Jones was under the influence of tt'riink. J. Rees Williams said he was speaking to a farmer on the street when Rees Jones came -along and shouted that he and Emanuel Jones had only half a soul. Rees Jones had previously pestered him over the recruiting business. Rees Jones said his brother told him that Williams and Emanuel Jones were complaining about him. He asked his brother to accompany him to them, but before he said a word Williams struck him down. He got up and promptly kaocked Williams down in self-defence. Rees Jones was fined 40s. and Johs Rees Williams and Emanuel Jones 20s. each. Obstructing the Highway. The defendant Rees Jones, also Richard Owen, Fforddyroes, Llanfair, labourer, and Morris Lloyd, Tymawr, Llanfair, labourer, were next charged by P.C. Nathaniel Davies with having obstructed the highway in Harlech at ten o'clock on the night of fair day, May 13th. P.C. Davies said there was a big crowd of people on the road that night. and foremost among them was Rees Jones, I who had told witness that lie was on the look-out for J. Rees Williams, to thrash him. Witness asked the crowd to move on and they all went: but in a few seconds the three defendants returned and stood in the same place. The street at that point was very narrow and pedestrians had to step into the gutter to pass. He again asked defendants to move on. They refused. Witness added that there were frequent complaints since public lamps were not lighted about the conduct of young men who made remarks on pedest- rians, especially on young ladies, some of the remarks being highly objectionable. Defendants were each fined 10s. Urged to Follow the King. The Chairman, addressing the defend- ants and those in the previous case, said he was sorry to see young men brought before the Bench on charges of that nature. He urged them to follow the King's example and take the temperance pledge for the period of the war. Mr. Robert Richards Yes, and for ever. The Chairman—Yes; that is the best that could happen to you and others. A Doctor's Omission. Dr. Lloyd Roberts, Castle Square, Car- narvon, was charged by P.S. J. F. Evans with having failed to produce his driving licence when lawfully requested to do so. Messrs. Carter Vincent and Co., defend- ant's solicitors, wrote that the omission to have the licence with him was purely accidental, as it was his practice to carry it with him, and he hoped, accordingly, that the justices might see their way either to dismiss the summons or impose a nominal fine. In passing through Pen- rhvn. Dr. Roberts observed a number of men standing in the centre of the road- way in the square. In order to obtain a passage and to avoid all risk of -accident defendant on approaclung the corner sounded his horn several times. Apparently that displeased the police officer, who was at the Police Station, as he shouted out some remark to Dr. Roberts when passing. Dr. Roberts stopped the car and came back and asked the officer what complaint he had to make. The officer replied that there was no need for him to sound his horn so much as there was ample room to pass. Dr. Roberts stated that he con- sidered the officer should have been at the corner of the roadway to regulate the traffic. Thereupon the officer asked for the production of the licence. The letter added that professional business in London prevented Dr. Roberts attending the Court. P.S. Evans said defendant was coming from Maentwrog direction on fair day. There were half a dozen people standing on the side of the pavement, and defend- ant came round the corner at a. sharp pace on the wrong side of the road close to those people. He called out to dofend- lant to be more cautious. Defendant 'stopped the car and came back, and asked what was the trouble. Witness said he had skirted the corner too sharply. De- i, fendant replied "If I have done something wrong report me." He asked defendant to be good enough to produce his licence but he failed to do so. Defendant was fined 10s.
Portmadoe Sessions. TWO CONSCRIPTS FINED. SCENE IN COURT. Portma.doc Petty Sessions were held on Friday before Jonathan Davies, Esq., in the chair. John Lewis and D. Fowden Jones, Esqrs. New Rates. The magistrates signed the following new poor rates:— C. ueth, 4s. 6d. for the year, being the same as last year. Penllyn, 5s. for the year, same as last year. Treflys, 3s. 6d. for the half year, same as corresponding period last year. Beddgelert, 3s. 8d. for the half year, or 4d. less than the corresponding period 1.J.. "t:Tj(""}(},"r l.u;)U ,T Garn Dolbenmaen, 4s. for the year, same as last year. The Bench said the arrears on the Criccieth rate book included arrears out- standing for more than a year, and they asked the Criccieth overseers to put the matter right, otherwise the Bench 'might not see their way to sign the rate next year. School Cases. David Hughes, 51, Chapel-street, sum- moned for neglecting to send his child to school was fined 5s. Other school cases were dealt with as follows :Rebecca Thomas, 4, Sawmill- terrace, adjourned to July 14th: Kate Edwards, Back Comet Stores, summons withdrawn owing to improved attendance; Henry Jones, Garth-terrace, adjourned to J ujne 30th: John Thomas, Saw Mill- terrace, withdrawn owing to improved attendance; David M. Roberts, Glan- morfa^terrace, Tremadoc, adjourned to June 30th. Wrong Address. In applyting for the withdrawal of a summons under the Lights Vehicles Order against a man named Griffith Jones, bupt. Owen said the real defendant, who was also named Griffith Jones, had given a wrong address where a man of the same name lived. The real defendant would be summoned for the next court. Wheeling Without Lights. James Garrdtty, Penrhyndeudraeth, was charged with wheeling a truck at night without a light; and the following were summoned for wheeling bicycles without ti glits: William Hughes, Ysguborhen, Chwilo". Wm. Jones, Garth I Motrthyn, Treflys; Dalvid Williams, Eis- teddfa, Treflys. The fbur defendants said they were unaware it was necessary to carry lights when they wheeled vehicles; but Si pt. Owen explained that under the new order lights must be carried back and front with all classes of vehicles even when they were wheeled. The case against Garretty was dismissed with a caution. In the other cases a fine of 5s. each was imposed. Driving Without a Light. Richard Thomas, Cefnmeusydd Isa, Treflys, summoned for driving a horse and car without a light was fined 10s. A Conscientious Objector. William H. Roberts, Bryn Villa, Pwll- heli, an insurance agent, who was registered at 36, New-street, Portmadoc, was charged with being an absentee under the Military Service Act. Lieut. Chapman, assistant recruiting officer for Carnarvonshire, said the I defendant, who was forty years of age, applied for exemption to Pwllheli Borough I Tribunal and the Appeal Tribunal. The claim was refused by both tribunals. He was notified to present himself at Bangor on May 5th, but the papers calling him up were returned. Supt. Owen said the defendant claimed exemption as a conscientious objector and was placed by the Appeal Tribunal in a non-combatant branch. Defendant said the military had no claim on him. As a conscientious objector he was entitled under the Military Service Act to absolute exemption. He considered lie had not committed an offence in refusing to report himself. The Bench said they had nothing to do with the reasons of the tribunals for their refusal to grant exemption. Defendant was there that day for absenting hiii, elf from the army, and the Bench had no option but to fine him 40s. i.iid remand him to wait a military escort. A Gipsy Conscript. Samuel Lock, a travelling gipsy, was also charged with being an -bsentee under the Military Service Act. Supt. Owen said lie was arrested at Abergele. P.S. Jones said the defendant was registered at Pwllheli, but when he visited him at Llyn Bach, Portmadoc, on May 9th, he failed to produce his registration card. P.C. Hughes spoke to handing him on May 10th a notice asking him to present himself at the military head- quarters in Bangor on May J £ tli. Lieut. Chapman said they were urn Me to trace the defendant for some weeks and, in the result, the unusual course was adopted by asking the police to serve the defendant with the notice paper and rail- way warrant. The papers were returned by the defendant to Bangor without explanation. ¡ Defendant—They could have found mo quite easily. I "-as III Penygroes for eight months. I did not go on May 12tli simply because I wanted time to get married and I have since got married by special licence. •The Bench fined defendant 4Qs. and remanded him to wait a military escort. Defendant's parents were in Court and the father asked if defendant could be allowed to stay with his wife and child until next day. He was ready to lay down L15 as a guarantee that he would present himself next day. The Chairman—We have no power to do that. We have to remand him In custody to wait a military escort. Defendant—What is to become of my van and my wife and children? The van is on the side of the road at Abergele. A Scene. Harold Lock, a brother of the defend- ant, was next charged with having used words intended to create disaffection in HJs Majesty's Forces. Defendant, on arriving in the Court- room accompanied by a constable, shouted cxcitedly that the constable had just hit him and his brother outside the Court- room. He (defendant) was struck in the jaw. The defendant's parents joined defend- 'ant in cries of protest and there was a great din in the Court-room for some time, the defendant threatening to hit the constable who he alleged struck him on his way to the Court-room The Chairman had to threaten to clear the Court before the parents and the defendant calmed down. When Sam Lock returned to Court later to give evidence on his brother's behalf he also accused the same constable of hitting hi.m, whereupon the Jf.nther asked whether an officer was allowed to strike a prisoner in the face outside the ? Supt. Owen—You need not worry. I shall enquire into the matter. Another ctanstabile (P.C. Hughes) said when serving the notice on Samuel Lock at Portmadoe on May 10th his brother Harold told Sam to hand "the
Lleyn Farmers and the Armv
Lleyn Farmers and the Armv. MILITARY REPRESENTATIVE'S WARNING. At Lleyn Peninsula Tribunal, on Friday at Pwllheli the Oounty Military Repre- sentative /(Lieutenant Cradoc Davies) com- plained that the Lleyn district was not contributing its proper quota of men to the army. Other agricultural districts were finding more men than they should, but Lleyn farmers were carrying on as usual. It was an erroneous impression among farmers that they were entitled to the same number of men as before the war. They must make up their mind to do with at least twenty-five per cent fewer men so as to release a portion of their Lands for military duties. Those who were exempt to work on the land were expected to bear a share of the common burden by working longer hours. Mr. Daniel Jones, representative of the Board of Agriculture stated that, accord- ing to the Board returns, Lleyn Peninsula was producing more food and rearing more animals than any other part in the United Kingdom. The fact that there were no railway facilities in Lleyn greatly hampered them and increased their work. (Applause). Alderman Maurice Jones (chairman) said the conditions in Lleyn were undoubt- edly exceptional, and all aspects of the question would be considered. Agricultural labourers were exempted for six months.

DYFFRYN. WEILSH-AMUilRjICAiN'S DEATH. -The Welsh-Ameitican newspaper, "Y Drych," contains an account of the death of Mr. John B. Jones, New York Mills, which occurred on April 17th, and of his funeral at Forest Hill Cemetery. He was a well- known resident and his loss is greatly felt there, particularly at Salem Chapel, where he had been deacon for many years. He was born at Penyclogwyn, Bryncir, Carnarvonshire, on November 12th, 1842. His father died when he was a lad and he undertook the responsibility of looking after his widowed mother and her younger children. He was married in 1871 to Elizabeth Jones, by whom he had eight children, all of whom are alive, namely, John B. Jones, Mrs. Owen Williams, W. B. Jones, Mrs. William Parry, Mrs. Sam Ellis, Hugh G. Humphreys, Mrs. Hugh S. Jones, and George B. Jones. Mr. Jones worked as a quarryman for several years. In 1887 he and his family emigrated to the States, where he led an industrious and useful life. He was a keen theologian and philosopher, possessing a strong intellect and a firm character, and of a puritanical disposition. Though he had a long and painful illness, ne appeared more con- cerned for the pains of wounded soldiers in Europe than for his own suffering. His five sons-in-law and one of the sons were the bearers at the funeral. He has a brother, Mr George Brymer, in California, and a sister, Mrs. Ellen Williams, in Den- ver. In the old country he leaves a brother, Mr. David Jones, King's Mill, Dyffryn, and two sisters, Mrs. Jane Wil- liams and Mrs. Mary Williams, Bryncir.
TRAWSFYNYDD. KILLED IN ACTION—News has been received that Private Tommy Morris, of Llysawel, Trawsfynydd, has been killed in action in France. Deceased, who was a joiner, joined the oolours in April of last year and left for France in October. He was twenty-one years of age.

The Clerk (Mr. David Breese)—Is not he eligible? Lieut. Chapman—Not now. He is married, but he will be eligible under the new Act which comes to force next month. Witiiess-H,o also said he would rather be shot in front of his family than ro to 1 the army. Defendant-I never told my brother to send the papers back. All I can stay is that he (the officer) has told a pack of lies. P.S. Jones said defendant came to him later with Harold and asked why was lie served with a notice paper more than his brother or somebody else? Witness re- plied that his brother was married. Harold thereupon said You are a d-- fool if you go, Sam. Tell the b-- to go and fight themselves. This b-- country is not worth fighting for. Defendant—I never said any such thing. He added that all he asked the constablo was what country was it they had to fight for? In this country they could not stop a night anywhere with their caravans without being summoned by the police and fined £1 for obstruction. He denied using bad language or telling his brother to return the papers. He cer- tainly asked the constable why didn't he join the army himself. The Bench said they had power to fine defendant £ 100 or sentence him to six months' imprisonment. Dofeindiant Phew, I shall join the armv first. The Cha rman— We have, however, decided to deoal leniently with you. You will be fined J65 or one month's imprison- ment. The father came forward and promptly paid the ;C5. and remarked that he was determined to inquire into his son's charges against one of the police constables, even if it cost him £ 100. The Chairman pointed out that the new Military Service Act applying to married men came into force on June,24th. The fatlier-Could he not go to-morrow? The C'hairman- We have nothing to do with that as a Bench, but we feel that your son will make a good soldier. Children's Court. Four beys aged from nine to eleven years were charged with maliciously damaging a wall on the roadside near Sygyn Bridge. Beddgelert, and throwing five feet of stonework into the river. The Bench dismissed the case with a reprimand and ordered the parents to make good the damage amounting to 12s. r, M.
