Bankyfelin Show. Bankyfelin Show was held on the 7th inst. and was one of the most successful ever held in connection with the Society. Most agricul- tural and horticultural shows in Carmarthen- shire have been suspended owing to the war. but Bankyfelin continues to pursue the "even tenour of its way." There was a fine lot of horses—indeed the quality would match that seen at the biggest shows in South Wales. The same can be said of the cattle. The show of flowers naturally was not so good as in sunnier years; there was a fine display of vegetables. Mr John Hinds, M.P., acted as president, and the secretarial duties were ably carried out by Mr J. Penllwyn Walters, who has held the office for some years and given general satisfaction. The judges were: Cattle, Mr R. A. Falconer, The Farm, Stackpole, Pembroke; horses, Mr J. F. Thomas, Penybedd, Pembrey; horticul- ture, Mr Tom Griffiths, gardener to Captain Buckley, J.P., Castell Gorfod; agriculture, Mr J.

Lampeter Deadlock. Mr Llew. O. Davies, who presided at the Lampeter Rural Tribunal on Saturday, drew attention to teh large number of military re- presentatives present. -He thought it would be better for them to decide there and then who was the actual military representative. Major Williams replied that Col. Brewer was the military representative and Mr Walter 'Davies his deputy. "When the tribunal was aeked by "Major Williams to review seven cases, the Chairman asked if there was any fresh evidence. Major Williams said they had gone into the matter and made further enquiries. They would not have brought them on without fresh information. Mr J. Jones suggested postponing the oases. Major Williams objected. In the course of further argument, Major Williams remarked: The thing is too serious to play with. Hero we are, after consultation with the Advisory Committee, bringing these oases forward. There is nothing in the cireu- ?lar (referred to by the chairman) which tells } you not to review. If you don't do 50, L'll i simply have to take.a. higher course. I Mr J. Jones: Pembrokeshire and Carmar- thenshire have postponed them. Major Williams What Carmarthenshire has done is irregular. Eventually all the review cases were post* poned sine die.
