Llandudno and Colwyn Bay Tramway Extension. Mr David Gamble presided over a special meeting of the Colwyn Bay Urban District Council on Friday evening, when a recom- mendation -from the General Purposes Com- mittee was submitted with regard to the exten- sion of the Llandudno and Colwyn Bay Elec- tric T'raway Company's tramway from the exist- ing terminus uo Old Colwyn. The Company have ,alrea,dypower to extend their line to Giloes, a pcoint about half-way be- tween the present terminus at the top of Sta,tion Road, Colwyn Bay, and Old Colwyn, and the Council have undertaken to carry out whatever road widemings are necessary on that section at a charge of £ 3,000 to the Company. Strong representations 'have been made to the Council urging them to prevail upon the Com- pany to carry the line to the Queen's Hotel, which is situated at the eastern extremity of Old Colwyn, and have the work taken in hand at the same time as the Groes section. Mr Stephen Sellon, chairman of the Tram- way Company's directors, and others mat the Committee at 7 p.m., and theiir deliberations lasted for three hours. Subsequently they were made an offer by the Council that if they carried out the entire scheme to the Queen's Hotel the Council would bear the expense of widening the road where necessary for £ 4,000, the Company to purchase all lands. The Company's representatives are under- stood to have disapproved of the price, but it is felt that a settlement will soon be effected. The proposed extension will lengthen the present route by about a mile amd a half, and will open up a populous and promising area. CYCLIST KILLED JN LIANBERIS PASS. Two young men, John Owen, 20 years of age, son of Mr Joihn Owen, Gorslwyd, Llan- ddona, Anglesey, and John Roberts, Upper Gorslwyd, Llanddona, were cycling dowin Llan- beris Pnss on Sunday night- when they met a motor-car rounding a corner, John Owen im- mediately swerving aside, lost 'Ciointrol of his machine" and dashed into a rock on the road side, against whicih his head struck with such violence that he became unconscious. He was taken to Victoria House, Llanberis, where he died about midnight. Mr Lewis, a contractor at the Llainberis Quarries, decided to cycle to LlandcVma to inform the youth's parents. Llanddona is about 25 males from Llanberis. When Mr Lewis rrolihed Beaumaris, Mr W. Coddington, a well-known yachtsman, carried the wearied main in his motor to Llanddona, and took him and Owen's prurents back to Llanberis. They were, however, too late to see their son alive, he having died about half-an- hc-ur before their arrival.
