ST. ASAPH. WOMEN'S LIBERAL ASSOCIATION. At the meeting of this association held last Friday evening, at Bryngobaith, an address was delivered by Mrs. Bertha Evans, Caerwys, I., on 'Women's Suffrage.' INDIAN FAMINE RELIEF FUND. At the various places of worship here, last Sunday, collections were made towards the above fund. Upwards of £ 40 was collected, and the amount was handed over to Mr. T. Howes Roberts, chairman of the Parish Coun cil, who forwarded it on Monday to the Lord Mayor of London, to be included in the Man- sion House Fund. LITERARY SOCIETY. The meeting of this society was held last Wednesday evening, the Rev. Jonathan Jones presiding, when a debate took place on the question, 'Is it fair that public money should be given to support schools which are not under public control?' Mr. J. P. Jones opened the debate on the affirmative side, and Mr. H. Thomas led on the negative. Other members who took part in the discussion were Messrs R. Griffiths, O. Hughes, David Hughes. Isaac Clayton, W. H. Jeffreys, and H. R. Hughes. On being put to a vote, it was decided by a large majority that it is most unfair to grant public money to schools without being ac- companied by public control. THE WAEN COURSING MEETING. The above event, after having been postpon- ed for a considerable time, owing to the recent frost, came off on Thursday. The weather was most unpropitious, and heavy showers of rain fell at intervals throughout the day. This, however, did not damp the enthusiasm of the sportsmen, and the sport was followed with keen interest and appreciation by a large num- ber of people. Nine dogs entered for competition, and were the property of the following gentlemen :â Messrs David Knowles, Denbigh: J. Williams, Brookhouse, Denbigh; Henry Williams, Wern Ddu, St. Asaph: John Edgar, Denbigh; John Williams, Plas Uchaf, Llannefydd; R. Hughes, Fronheulog, Llanfairtalhaiarn; J. Rowlands, Rhyl; Thomas Roberts, Lleweni, Denbigh, and E. T. Humphreys, Goblin, Denbigh. I The races took place on Glanclwyd, Wern Ddu, and Tyddyn farms, where plenty of hares I were to be found. Mr. J. D. Jones, Bodoryn, Abergele, and Mr. John Williams, Brookhouse, I officiated as judges, and placed the dogs as follows:â1st prize, Mr. Hughes, Fronheulog; 2nd, Mr. John Williams, Brookhouse; 3rd. Mr. David Knowles. Mr. Henry Williams, Wern Ddu, was the slipper. We might say that those who enjoyed the sport are greatly indebted to the kindness of Mr. W. C. Jones, of Llanerch Park, who holds the shooting rights over the land, and who pre-erved all the hares for the purpose; and in addition to this, gave to a large company an excellent dinner at the Railway Inn, St. Asaph, later in the day.
