To the Electors. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, â€” It gives me much pleasure to acknowledge the expression of confidence which you have recorded, by placing me at the head of the poll on Saturday last. Please accept my best thanks.â€”Yours faithfully, JOSEPH BANKS.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN I desire to thank the 117 ratepayers who so kindly recorded their votes in my favour at the recent District Council Election. Though unsuccessful, for reasons easily ex- plained, I am none the less grateful.-Yours faithfully, OWEN J. DAVIES, Vicar.
TALK IN PRESTATYN. The principal theme of conversation this week has been the Council Election and its results. The talk was that the choice of the ratepayers came as a surprise to many, that it was a pity to find two useful members of the late Council in a minority, but that the new councillors are a decided acquisition to our local parliament. Many think that the time has now arrived for an increase in the number of our representatives. During the course of the poll remarks were passed upon the practice of candidates and their friends taking up a position at the doors of the polling booth. The talk was that it is decidedly disconcerting for lady voters-not to speak of the bashful ones 9f the other sex-to be obliged to run the gauntlet of a crowd of more or less anxious candidates, each of whom is mentally calculating the probable direction of their vote. The smile which the voter is morally bound i to bestow upon each of the candidates of his acquaintance becomes hypocritical if there is no intention of recording a vote to match. -=-="=
PRESTATYN COUNCIL ELECTION. The annual election of Urban Councillors for Prestatyn took place on Saturday, when there were nine candidates for four seats, three of the old members seeking re-election. The polling station was at the Town Hall, Mr John Hughes acting as returning officer, with Mr G. W. Jones as poll clerk. There was a considerable amount of interest manifested in the election, and very few of those who attempted a forecast of the result were anywhere near the mark. The voting was considerably split up, for in addition to four candidates being nominated from the Liberal Club and three from the Constitutional Club, there were two independents in the field. Then again one of the Liberal nominees was a Churchman, while one independent candidate-although a Liberal-,was assisted by some of the Conservatives, so that the result was awaited with interest. The voting was from 12 noon to 8 p.m., and at about 9-15 Mr John Hughes announced the results to an eager crowd aa follows BANKS, JOSEPH 181 WRIGHT, HENRY 156 *PRITCHARD, JOHN 147 INGLEFIELD, WILLIAM 141 *ELLIS, PETER 129 DAVIES, O. J. 117 WILLIAMS, T. PARRY 107 TUCKER, THOS. G. 84 MARSHALL, WM 45 Denotes retiring members. e The first four were declared elected, the figures being received with loud cheering. Mr Banks then stepped forward, and was heartily applauded. He thanked the electors for the handsome way in which they had voted for him, and he took it as a confirmation of his eflortb to secure equality of treatment. His election was all the more gratifying as it shewed that a townsman could get on -the Council off his own bat. He hoped to deserve the confidence placed in him (cheers). Mr Henry Wright was the next speaker, and in expressing his thanks ht) sympathised with those candidates who were disappointed. He intended to -study the interests:. of. all alike, and trusted the coming year would be a prosperous onaforrrestatyn, and a year of judicious improvements. Mr Wright declared that at the end of three years it was not his intention to canvass for votes, he therefore urged the electors to watch through the Press the work done by each member. i Mr John Pritchard thanked the electors for returning him once more, and said he had been well-placed each time he had tried. He reminded the electors that, he was the only Welshman returned. Mr W. Iuglefield. tendered his thanks to the electors for the kind way they had treated him, although he had only recently come into their midst. It was his intention to do his utmost for all, and he hoped his conduct would prove to them that he was in earnest. On the proposition of Mr Banks, seconded by Mr Henry Wright, a vote of thanks was accorded the officials for the manner in which the election business had been carried through. Out of a little over 400 electors, 327 came to the poll, 1,107 votes were recorded out of a possible 1,808, so that 201 votes were not used, this being accounted for by "plumpers." Not one voting paper was spoilt.
THE PROPERTY MARKET. At the Hoyal Victoria Hotel on Monday,' Messrs. Frank Jewell and Co. offered for sale by auction several lots of property situate in Prestatyn. Mr J. Holland Roberts and Mr Clement Hughes read the conditions of sale, and-before submitting the various lots, Mr Frank Jewell said there had been a considerable amount of building in Prestatyn recently, and the houses let almost as soon as they were completed. That was certainly a healthy sign, and showed that the town had not got into a rut. Mr Jewell referred to the golf course which was now being laid out, and also mentioned that a swagger tennis and bowling green with a pavilion was being made at the top of the town. The motor railway was very con- venient. and these new attractions would all tend to bring more people to Prestatyn. After further remarks by the auctioneer, the various lots were submitted, but nont of the property changed hands. Since then, however, negotiations have been entered into, and there is every pro- bability that the whole of the lots will be disposed of. yreiiii.MH i i mwnwnw*. il imil.RHi ipygF

REHOBOTH BAZAAR. i For some months past the friends at Rehoboth C.M. Chapel have been busily i engaged preparing for a bazaar, the object of which was to reduce the debt on the chapel. The event was held on both Wednesday and Thursday in the Town Hall, and the i fact that the members and friends of the < church had been hard at work since the bazaar was first mooted was amply demon- strated by the appearance of the well-stocked stalls. The centre of the hall was occupied by the fancy work stall, and some excellent pieces of work were exposed for sale here. Near the stage was the refreshment stall, and close at hand was the fruit and flower stall, while at the other end was a gentleman's stall. Several attractions were provided, and the museum came in for a good share of patronage, 0 curios from all parts of the world being exhibited here. It might be stated that the work of erect- ing the stalls, painting various signs, and a host of other oddments, had been done free of any cost by members of the chapel. The opening ceremony on Wednesday was performed by Mr John Cunnah, before introducing whom, Rev. Ezra Jones explained the object of the bazaar. So far they had been very fortunate in securing assistance from many friends, and Mr Cunnah had supported them in a substantial way, having handed ia a cheque for Â£5 5/- (applause). Mr Cunnah said it gave him great pleasure to be among them that day inasmuch as the bazaar was in aid of a good cause. Some people were against bazaars, but, said Mr Cunnah, if they read the Bible more closely they would find that in the olden days Jews used to bring offerings to the house of God, so that bazaars of to-day were only a con- tinuation of that custom. After further remarks, Mr Cunnnh declared the bazaar open. Mr-Pennant Williams proposed a vote of thanks to Mr Cuanah, and also read a telegram from Mr Goronwy Jones who regretted his inability to be present at the opening ceremony. Mr Jones (Derwen) seconded the vote of thanks,and business was then proeeeded with. THURSDAY'S PROCEEDINGS. e The opening ceremony was performed by Mrs J. R. Jones (Derwen), and in introduc- ing the lady to the audience, Hev Ezra Jones spoke of how ready Mrs Jones always was to help any good cause. ( In the course of her remarks, Mrs Jones said that before performing the pleasing duty of opening the bazaar, she would like to refer to a few statistics connected with Rehoboth. The church cost Â£2000, and subsequently a piece of land was bought for J6450 a portion of which was sold for Â£ 200. Four years ago tUa place was entirely re-decorated, and a beautiful organ added, the total cost being J6600. To-day, however, the whole debt was only Â£ 1,100, so that when they considered the amount of the collections for the ministry, the connexion, etc., etc., they would agree that they had done very well (applause). The church had done, and continued doing, good work, so they could justly and confidently appeal for outside help. Rehoboth was an ornament to Prestatyn, and she appealed to them as citizens of a growing town to give a practical demonstration of their interest in the cause, for by so doing they would stimulate the church in her work. After further remarks Mrs Jones declared the Bazaar open. On the proposition of Mr H. R. Hughes, seconded by Mr Goronwy Jones, a hearty vote of thanks was accorded Mrs 1. Jones for the graceful way in which she had performed the ceremony. Rev Ezra Jones announced the receipt of a cheque for Â£ 3 3/- from Mrs Jones, and special mention was also made of Mr J. R. Jones and his friends for the trouble they had gone to in getting together an interesting collection of curiosities. The proceedings were enlivened on each day with musical items by Misses F., Jones, E. Wright, A. and D. Yeoman, Dilys Hughes, M. J. Hughes, and others. The arrangements had been carried out by a representative executive committee, Mr H. R. Hughes acting as treasurer, and Mr Pennant Williams very capably discharging the duty of hon. secretary. The proceeds for the two days amounted to Â£100. The general stall was in charge of Mrs Ezra Jones, Mrs Goronwy Jones, Mrs Pennant Williams, Mrs Lloyd Jones, Mrs G.W. Jones, Mrs Hughes, (Bank), Mrs J. R. Jones (Derwen), Mrs Edwards (Stanley House), Miss Roberts (Roslyn-tce), Mrs Thomas (Hafod Elwy), Mrs R. Williams (Roslyn-tce), Mrs Williams (2 Iaglan), Miss Jones (Cara- doc) Mrs" Hughes (Gronant house), Mrs Hughes (Chemist), Mrs Williams (Dyserth), and Miss Low. The ladies presiding over the refreshment .stall were Mrs Waterhouse, Mrs John Davies (Towyn). Mrs Williams (Stafford house), Mrs Williams (Clwyd View), Mrs JoiMs (Bryn Hyfryd), Mrs Lewis (Garfield), Mrs Jones (Maelor), Miss Mima Jones, Miss Dowell (Towyn), Miss Eleanor Huglies, Miss Martha Jones, Miss Roberts (Terfyn), Miss Linnell. The newer Stall was managed by Miss Lily Hughes, Misg Davies, Miss Annie Williams, --Â¡-<r" Miss Eames, Miss Alice Davies, Miss M. J. Hughes, and Miss Katie Jones. The bachelors stall was appropriately placed in the charge of Mr T. H. Jones and Mr W. Williams. Messrs J. R. Jones. Wm. Jones, and Tudor Jones, were responsible for the museum, while the shooting gallery was in the care of Messrs R. J. Williams and Tudor Hughes.
