TESTIMONIAL TO MR. MOSTYN "WILLIAMS. The Local Committee for promoting the claims of Rhyl as the locale for the North Wales College was dissolved by resolution st a meeting held on December 22nd, at the Commissioners' Rooms. It was then announced that the expenditure of the committee in ad- vocating the claims of Rhyl exceeded by 43 13s, 6d, the receipt, This deficiency was at once subscribed by the members pre- sent. Mr P. MOSTYN WILLIAMS has been all along a most excellent advocate for Rhyl, and the proposal of the committee to recognise his services in a substantial manner is not more than could be expected. His ela borate statement of claim was a master-piece, and in its compilation Mr MOSTYN WILLIAMS spent nights and days. The statement must have entailed a heavy outlay in books and statistical documents in order to pre- pare it, and to obtain all other neces- sary information but get it he did, and when it was got with hislusual ability Mr WILLIAMS placed it before his readers in a simple and readable form. His able and strenuous efforts to secure the college for Rhyl were not at- tended with the desired resuli; but the state- ment of claim was the means of strengthening the demands of Wales for higher education, and also of placing our town before the coun- try in a more favourable light, especially as regarding its centrality and healthfulness. For this alone Mr WILLIAMS deserves a most handsome recompense, and we feel that what- ever may be the ultimate result of the com- mittee's appeal it cannot be an adequate pay- ment for the time, labour, and energy, to say nothing of the ability bestowed by Mr MOSTYN WILLIAMS. The fund will be closed on the 31st inst., and those who feel disposed can pay their contributions to Mr SMALLEY, at the North and South Wales Bank. Mr WILLIAMS in the work which he accomplished was, we are sure, animated by no other desire than to set foith the claims of North Wales to a col- lege, and in particular to support the claims of Rhyl (his adopted town, and for which in other respects he has done so much) to be chosen as the locale of that institution. Though he failed to attain his object the effort was no less a noble one and worthy of the recognition of his fellow-townsmen. We may say that the circular is signed ty Capt. CONWY, and a number of local gentry have already promised subscriptions. ⦠I
