ABERGELE. REJOICINGS.âThis usually quiet little town was en fete on Friday, in honour of the visit to Kinmel of the heir (Mr. H. S. B. L. Hughes) on his return from his wedding tour. Mr. Hughes was married in October last to Miss Stewart Hodgson, of Lythe Hill, Haslemere, Surrey. A committee was formed at this place, in order to celebrate the event in a worthy manner. A subscription list was opened, which reached £171. A beautiful set of silver entree plate was purchased for 100 guineas, the inscription on which runs as follows :â" Presented to H. S. B. L. Hughes, Esq., on the occasion of his marriage, by the tenants of the Kinmel estate and the well-wishers in Abergele. Oct. 22nd, 1885." An address in a handsome frame was also prepared by Mr. J. Orr Marples, of Liverpool. The balance was devoted to decorations and other demonstra- tions. The town was gaily decorated with arches with suitable mottoes, and a large number of flags. Mr. and Mrs. Seymour Hughes arrived at Abergele Station at 1 5 p.m., and were thence escorted to Kinmel by from 50 to 60 of the tenants and well- wishers on horseback, preceded by a brass band, and followed by a large concourse in carriages, as well as some on foot. On arriving at the hall, the gift and the address were formally presented to Mr. and Mrs. Hughes by the chairman (Mr. James Kerfoot) on behalf of the committee. Mr. Hughes briefly thanked them for their much-valued gift, for the sentiments which they had been good enough to embody in the address, and for the demonstrations of good-will which had been shown that day. The members of the committee were then invited to luncheon at the hall. At 6 p.m., a numerously- attended banquet was held at the Bee Hotel. General Wynne, of Coed Coch, presided the vice- presidents being Captain Rowley Conwy and Mr. James Kerfoot. At 9 30 p.m. a soiree was held at the Town Hall, Mr. Hasselden's (Rhyl) string band in attendance. Mr. John Williams, R.S., and Mr. J. D. Jones, Bedoryn, were the honorary secretaries of the movement; and the fact that there was not a single hitch in the proceedings is due to their tact, energy, and forethought.
