LLANDILO. DEATH OF THE REV. J. A. BERESFORD.—The death has just occurred at the Rectory. Easton Grey, of the Rev John Jervis Beresford. a nephew of the Itite Judge Beresford, Hafod- neddyn. The deceased at one time officiated at Court Henry. He had attained to the age of 61. He attracted considerable attention as a preacher from the tact that he was blind. In a modest way too he was a poet. What how- ever brought him under public notice in the locality where he was officiating at the time of his death was the fact that Mr Asquith. a not infrequent visitor to Easton Grey, Wils., in- variably attended Mr Beresford1 s church, and during such visits read the lesons for the day. The church stands in the grounds of Easton Grey House, the residence of Mrs Graham Smith, Mr As.jiiith's sister. The deceased clergyman was a Cambridge man, taking a second class i.n the Law Tripos in 1878. The following year lie took his B.A. decree, but he did not proceed to M.A. until I880. Ordained dcacon in 1880. by the Bishop of Worcester, he took a curacy at St. Martin's, in the cathe- dral city, and he was there when ordained priest. Subsequently he served the church in the Isle of Wight and at Court Henry, and for a short time he was in the little parish of Martin, near Marlborough. He went to Easton Grey in 1898. the being a gift of a member of his family. It is a smali parish of about a hundred population. He published at least one volume of poetry. His wife pre- deceased him a couple of years ago. PRESENTATION TO A CLERGYMAN.—The Rev Ivor James. M.A., the son of Mr D.

i1 Corporation v Electric Light Company J
i Corporation v. Electric Light | Company. J FULL PRICE FOR EXTINGUISHED LAlPS. J The matter of the public lighting of Carmar- then assumed a new phase at the meeting of j the Town Council on Wednesday the 29th inst. A letter was read from the Electric Light Co. stating that they could not depart from sel's opinion and they could not go beyond that of the 24 discontinued lamps on condition that the Council allow them during the war to charge one penny per unit extra to private consumers. The Town Clerk said that they asked for an immediate reply as to whether the Corporation agreed to this. He had wired to the Com- pany's Office in London stating that lie could not give an answer before consulting the Coun- cil in the matter. In reply to this the company now wrote stating that negotiations must be closed, and that the Council must pay the full amount 1 Nlr Dd. We must wait and see what is the next step. Mr L. D. Thomas moved, and Mr W. J. Martin seconded that the 21 discontinued lamps be replaced. Mr H. S. Holmes said he could not see that it was the business of the Corporation to pro- tect private conumers. It was the private consumer's business to look after himself. 1 Mr Del. Williams: I think we are here to protect the private consumers. Mr Holmes: I don't object to it, but I thought I might say that. The Mayor said he thought the Council would have to pay the Company £ 35. Mr W. Evans We shall have to pay the £70 now and that is the full amount. Mr W. J. Martin said he did not think the Company couid claim the whole amount 'be- cause the standards and the wires were being used for private lighting. Why should the Council pay for their maintenance, when others had the use of them ? Mr Wm. Evans said lie did not agree with Mr Martin. The Council had paid for coun- sel's opinion and tey could not go beyond that again. Mr Dd. Williams By paying this money duo to them, can the Company raise the price of current to private consumersP The Clerk No. Mr Dd. Williams Are they going to have a try at it? The Clerk: How can they try ? Mr Wm. Evans The Company cannot do that without the consent of the Council. That was counsel's opinion. The Mayor explained that the contract made allowed the company to charge 5d per unit, and they could not alter it without the consent of the Corporation. Mr L. D. Thomas: Why should we concede anything to the Company? They are looking after their own interests. They wiil not con- code anything to the Corporation. Mr Dd. Williams said that as counsel's opinion was against the Corporation, they should adhere to the contract and pay what they were supposed to pay. He would not be a party to the Company charging above 5d per unit. !)11. Oliver Jones: If the Company break the contract in one. way owing to the war, we can break it in another way. What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Mr Win. Evans: What is the other way? -All- Oliver Jones: If they charge the extra penny. Mr Wm. Evans But they cannot charge it without- coming to us. That is for us to decide. Mr H. S. Holmes said L70 would mean a halfpenny rate and he objected to paying a half penny rate to protect the private con- smner. Mr Wm. Evans said it would be more profit- able to the company if the Council paid the fiO. Mr Dd. Williams: Oh dear no. not more profitable than if they are allowed to charge the extra penny. Mr D. J. Davies: Counsel's opinion is against us and we have got to pay the £ 70, but can they, without the Council's consont, increase the price to private consumers? The Clerk No. Mr Holmes: Counsel's opinion is against them on that. Mr Oliver Jones said lie had been told by a director of the Company that they were going to press for the extra charge of a penny per unit. Mr Wm. Evans: We ought to have jumped at tie offer of the £ 35 at the start. Now the ratepayers have had to pay for counsel's opinion as well. Mr Oliver Jones: I don't agree with you on that. We are paying them now over £ 35 for doing nothing. Mr L. D. Thomas: They are getting £ 70 at the expense of the ratepayers. They are de- priving the ratepayers of this six months of public lighting and we are paying them for nothing. Mr Thomas Davies said that the Council would only lose the lights. They were in the same position now from a financial point of view as they were before the discontinuance of the 24 lamps. The Mayor said the £ 70 covered a period of twelve months, and the six months in question would mean £ 35. Mr Thomas Davies: We must not study economy in the future (laughter). The motion of Mr L. D. Thomas that the. company be asked to replace the discontinued 'amps was adopted. The question of payment was postponed pending the company sending in their account. Mr Wm. Evans They will be sure to send pending the company sending in their account. Mr Wm. Evans They will be sure to send their bill in. It- will be all right about that. Rev A. Folicr Mills said it should be made clear to the public that the Council were mak- ing a st.and against the increase of a penny per unit to private consumers. V.T.C. SPORTS. Mr C. Haydn Williams applied for the use of the Park to hold sports on Bank Holiday, August 7th, in,connection with the V.T.C. The .Mayor What about the charge? Mr Dd. Williams: Grant it free on this occa- sion.—The application was granted. The use of the Park was also granted on Thursday, July 6tli, to hold sports in connec- tion with the Model School. COUNTY PEXSIOXS COMMITTEE AND THE BOROUGH. In reply to the resolution passed by the Cor- portion a letter was received from the Statu- tory Committee on Xaval and Military Pen- sions Administration. This stated that there was no provision in the scheme for the appoint- ment on the County Committee of a represen- tative of the Town Council. They presumed that this had been a matter of arrangement between the Town Council and the County Council, and they could not interfere. The Mayor pointed out that no arrangement had been made between the Councils. Mr Dd. Wil iams proposed that they send a reply stating that the Town Council had not been considered in any way. Rev A. Fuller Mills seconded and stated the County Council had conceded a separate com- mittee under the Act to Llanelly in order to shut Llanclly's mouth because it agitated in the matter, but lie dd not think they in Car- marthen were entitled to a committee because the population was not large, enough. Rev A. Fuller Mills said the Town Council could not do too much to push on this matter. Here they were talking ilke nineteen to the dozen and men are coming home from the front disabled and the administration of the fund lias not beencommencod, and the London Statutory Committee is referring the matter continually to the- Soldiers and Sailors Asso- ciation. By that means, hundreds of our men are suffering and suffering tremendously. In London there are disabled men who are obliged at the present time, having come from the front, to earn a living for themselves and families by playing an organ on the streets. Others are receiving nothing on a technical medical point. The Medical Board say that the ailments they are suffering from have nothing to do with the war, but the men were good enough to be sent to the wr. The Clerk was instructed to point out to the Statutory Committee that the Town Council had not been consulted at all in the matter of representation on the County Committee, and that they still thought the Mayor should be the Borough representative. Brigadier General Owen Thomas wrote re- ferring to the Welsh Xational movement to look after the interests of Welsh soldiers and sailors during and after tho war. He said that a great deal of misunderstanding seemed to exist as to th relationship between the move, ment and the War Pensions Act. He stated that there was no reason for any antagonism between the two schemes, because there was plenty of room for voluntary effort. Mr Dd. Will iams said that at the present time disabled soldiers who had not been dis- charged had not been paid what they were en- titled to. They were at their parent's mercy. Rev A. Fuller CHills said he was a supporter of General Owen Thomas's s henie, which was a voluntary effort to raise £ 100,000, and it would be administered by an independent com- mittee representative of every district in Wales. The object of the War Pensions Act was the same as that of the Board of Guard- ians. In reality it pauperism, and their soldiers and sailors would be given what was really charity. u_
KIDWELLY NOTES. A "Pound" Day, when people were in- vited to contribute pounds of groceries, pro- visions. etc.. to stock the larders of the Pare Howard, Llanelly, Red Cross Hospital, was held at Kidwelly on Thursday in last week, under the supervision of Mrs H. E. Smart, of Mountain View. a vice-president of the Red Cross Society. The affair had been hurriedly organised, but notwithstanding a huge success has to be recorded. The town was divided into districts, which were worked by the following enthusiastic members of Mrs Smart's sewing class:— Bridge st., Xew st., and Castle st.. Miss A. Morris. Cowpark; and Miss A .A. Harris, of Croft terrace. Ferry road to Tanylan: The Misses Craw- ford, The Arlais. .Farms around Penlan: The Misses n. and E. Anthony, Penlan. Water st. to Corporation Mrs Owen Evans.

Lady st. and Priory street: Mrs Segt-Ma jor Roberts, Old Vicarage, and Miss Jennie Wild, Angel1 House. Peregrine's row to Velindre Miss Evans, Xational School, and Miss Edna Thomas, Alstred street. The collectors were accompanied oil their house-to-house visit by school children, who carried baskets to hold the contributions. The following is a complete list of the articles re- oeived :-1121bs sugar, 201 bs tea, 401-bs rice, 57 lbs jam and marmalade, 121bs currants, 27 tins fruit, 31bs coffee berries, 3Clbs soap. 3 bars soap lOtins cocoa, 7 tins ground coffee, lib coffee. 2 packets flaked rice, 1 packet ground rice. 11 tins custard powder, 5 packets cigarettes, 1 cake toilet soap, lib corn flour, lGibs soda, 3 packets salt, 4 jellies, 4 packets Quaker Oats, 1 box starch. 2 packets peas, 3 tins boot polish, potatoes, l!b onions, 4 tins salmon, 1 tin sar- dines, 1 tin Zebra polish, 3 tins Bras o, 1 tin soft soap. 2 pots Leibig's extract of meat. 61 bs candles, 4 doz. boxes mutches, 1 piece cheese, lib lard, lib Britto, 13lbs Welsh bacon, 1 small piece Welsh bacon, Gibs ham, lib sago. 3lbs tapioca, 1 loaf bread. In addition to the above the children of the Mynyddygarreg Council School were responsi- ble for the following :—146 eggs, 7 bags goose- berries, 9 £ .lbs sugar, 1 box peas. 5 tins cocoa, 1 tin coffee, 2 tins camp coffe, n few new pota- toes, 1 packet salt, Gibs rice, 311hs tea, 2 tins milk, a few slices of bacon, 2 packets cigar- ettes, 2 bags biscuits, 10 cabbages, 3 bundles rhubarb, lettuce, parsley, sage, 3 loaves bread, 21bs tapioca. The total made a big load, which was con- veyed on Saturday in the motor van of Messrs Jones Bros.. Gwendraeth Stores, and handed over to the matron of the Hospital by Mrs Scrgt.-Major Roberts and Miss A. A. Harris on behalf of the people of Kidwelly. During the day Mr and Mrs Smart visited the hospital and received hearty congratulations on the success which had crowned their efforts. Mrs Smart feels greatly indebted to the eoute-ibu- tors, and begs to thank them most heartily through this column. Soar, Mynyddygarreg, ubnUleh of Capel Sul, Kidwelly, held its annual preaching meet- ings on Sunday last, and a very successful fes- tival resulted. In the morning, the service was held in Soar, but in tho afternoon and evening recourse had to be made to the more commodious Horeb C.M. Chapel, which the Methodist friends had kindly lent. Very largo congregations were prEsént at each service, and the special preacher, the Rev D. Rhyddereh. Capel Sion, Pontybercm, was at his best, and delivered a. series of powerful and edifying sermons. An air of sadness pervaded the gatherings on account of the absence, for the fir,t time in tho history of the festival, of the respected and aged pastor, the Rev W. C. Jen- kins. who is laid aside by indisposition. Sym- pathetic reterence.s to the rev. gentleman were made by the preacher, and prayers for his re- covery were offered. The collections were very satisfactory—in fact they established a record—and the wor- shippers are much encouraged by the support accorded the cause by all denominations. Mr J. A. Thomas. Mountain School, was in charge of the singing, which was very creditable throughout.
