Welsh Guards THE 1XITIA TI VE~OF CAP T AIX HARRY PHLIPPS, PICTON CASTLE. A Correspondent writes, men are very proud of the fact that Wales is at length to have its battalion of Guards, and they are grateful to Lord Dynevor and others for publicly drawing attention to the hitherto somewhat obscured fact that a young Pem- brokeshire gentleman, Captain H. Philippe, D.L., J.P., of Picton Castle, near Haverford- west, has had his efforts in this direction crowned with success. Captain Philipps should have a large share of the credit for voicing the aspirations of the Welsh people in this matter; and a great English journal ought not to be allowed to state unchallenged as it did in a recent issue, that "the claim of Wales to have a national regiment was first raised by Mr J. Aubrey Rees." It is impossible really to say who first raised this question many years ago. Doubtless many representative and patriotic Welshmen have done so from time to time but it is a mistake for anyone o be led to think that the matter was first brought forward since the present war began by Mr Rees in his letter to the "Times" on February 2nd. The writer was recently favoured with an interview with Captain Philipps, when, in response to a query on the point, that officer admitted that he was the first to bring the matter to public notice since the present great struggle began, he having drawn the atten- tion of Welshmen to it through the medium of his letters of last September to the So
4Llanelly Harbour Trust
-4> Llanelly Harbour Trust. A meeting of burgesses was held at Llanelly on Saturday night (Sir Stafford Howard pre- siding), for the purpose of considering the question of consenting to the borrowing by the Harbour Trust, with the approval of the Corporation, of a f vii-tliet sum of £2,600 to en- able the harbour improvement works at Car- re gfaeli to be proceeded with. The Town Clerk (Mr H. W. Spowart) said the Trust had spent on the scheme the £ 12,000 authorised by the Board of Trade, and it had been necessary to expend further moneys. The Bioiard had sanctioned the bor- rowing of another £ 2,500 provided the Cor- poration did not ask the Bank of England to lend the money until twelve months after the conclusion of peace. The Mayor said he had been extremely interested in the scheme since he became a trustee. It was a question of enormous im- portance to the town, and there was, to him, somehing extremely fascinating in watching a slow and difficult work of this kind, which, as far as they could see, was going to be a success. Mr Dan Williams, J.P., chairman of the Harbour Trust, in moving that the necessary sanction should be given, sa,id lie became rather anxious, when the Board of Trade gave their qualified sanction, but he approached Sir Stafford and Lady Howard, who would only be tco glad to heJp the town out of the difficulty by advancing the £ 2,500 until they ooulc1 get the money from the Bank of Eng- land (applause). Mr Win. SaniUel seconded the resolution, which was carried unanimously. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded Sir Suafford and Lady Howard for so kindly coming to the town's assistance,
t0 Illeged Excessive Rents at Llanelly
t >0 Illeged Excessive Rents at Llanelly. A resolution passed at a Llanelly public meeting, held under the auspices of the local Labour Association, was read at a meeting of the Corporation on Monday night protesting against the increased rents of houses in the town fdnee the outbreak of the war. Coun. W. Davies said the names of the house owners who had increased the rents should be placed before the overseers :with a view of increasing the assessments. The Town Clerk: I may say the overseers have already had a re-assessing campaign. Some of the discoveries so far have been absolutely startling. The Mayor (Sir Stafford Howard) said that if he were a tenant he should absolutely re- fuse to pay the increased rent and take his chance in the court. Coun. J. Hughes said there were numerous instances of rents having been increased, while in many other cases shopkeepers insisted upon their tenants buying at their shops. The position was getting threatening locally. Unless here was a change there might be an orga,nised strike against paying any rent at all. Coun. Hughes protested against "grossly exorbitant statements." "You might as well," he said "call some of us downright robbers." Coun. Hughes: It has been proved beyond doubt that there are robbers in the town and in the country. Coun. Hughes then said it was his inten- tion, upon the instruction of the Labour Association, to submit, a report in connection with the matter to the overseers.

WEATHER AND THE CROPS
WEATHER AND THE CROPS. Spring sowings are bound to be late; in fact, with February a black month for such labours, they may be said to be late already. The increase in area sown with oats and pulse is expected to be material between now and Easter, while after Easter a very large area of main crop potatoes is expected to be planted. Barley is likely to show. a reduced area under cultivation, and it is not at aU certain that much land will prove sowable with spring wheat. An effort will be made to increase area if drying winds mark the next fortnight.—Monday's "Mark Lane Express."
At the review of the Welsh Guards on I Monday, Mr Lloyd George wore a daffodil, and the men wore leeks. This is quite typical of the present state of affairs. The leek is favom-ed of the masses; the daffodil is chosen by those open to literary and historical argu- ments. The steamer Tliorandis, of Newcastle, on Monday rammed and sunk a German sub- marine. The German submarine fleet is like the man who boiatsed lie would bring the bear home. He did. He was about five yards in front of him when he got home.
