A SUCCESSFUL YOUNG MUSICIAN. At the Trinity College examination recently held in Liverpool, we are pleased to see that Miss Blodwen Roberts, daughter of Mr. D. G. Roberts, Manchester house, Abergele, was placed in the pass list with 78 marks. Two more marks would have meant honours, so that this young lady's 'pass' must be considered very satisfactory for one so young. We under. stand that Miss Blodwen is the pupil of Miss Pope, Brooklands. APPOINTMENT OF SURVEYOR. At a special meeting of the Urban District Council, held on Wednesday night, under the presidency of Dr. J. H Wolstenholme, J.P., there were present Messrs. Thomas Williams (vice-chairman), Isaac Roberts, J. Edwards, Pierce Davies, J. Pierce, Edward Williams, Tnomas Evans, G. Perkins, J. Hannah, and E. A. Crabbe (clerk). The only businefs on the agenda was the ap- pointment oi a surveyor, inspector, and col- lector. There were 17 applicants for the ap- pointment. A discussion arose as to the applicants' knowledge of Welsh, and it was resolved to ad. here to the terms of the advertisement. Mr. Thomas Evans expressed a desire to call Mr. Davies, an applicant from South Wales, before the Council. This was done; and Mr. Evans proposed that Mr. Davies be appointed, but failed to find a seconder. Mr. Pierce Davies proposed that Mr. John Williams, Fron Felen, Abergele, be appointed; and Mr. Hannah seconded. The Chairman observed thai Mr. Williams' testimonials scarcely ]>" me out that his quali- fications were in accordance with the require- ments of the Local Government Board, and spoke in favour of Mr. Robert E. Hughes, of Rhyl. Mr. George Perkins moved, and Mr. Thomas Williams seconded, that Mr. Hughes be ap pointed. On a division, ,ix voted for Mr. Hughes, and one for Mr. Williams; and Mr. Hughes was accordingly appointed.
