THE ROYAL VISIT ro ABERYSTWYTH. The members of the Royal Naval Reserve resi- dent in Aberystwyth and neighbourhood assembled at the Town Hall on Saturday in their uniforms. The men looked extremely well, and presented a smart appearance. Dr Harries delivered a short address, and complimented the men upon their turnout They said that they were willing to take part in the proceedings on the occasion of the royal visit. The men marched along the sea front to the Lion Hotel, at which place they were supplied with refreshments by Dr Harries. Dr Isambard Owen was present at a meeting, of the Reception Com- mittee held in the College on Saturday evening. The chair was taken by Mr H. C. Fryer. Dr Owen presented the order of proceedings as drawn up by the University Court, from which it seems that the Mayor and Corporation, together with representa- tives of the county and the University and College authorities, will meet the royal party at the station. The installation ceremony is timed to take place at 12-30, the luncheon at 1-45, the opening of the hos ;el at 3-30, and the return journey will be made at 4-15.—The South Wales Freemasons are making applications, through their Past Grand Master, to the Mayor of Aberystwyth and the College authorities for permission to present an address of welcome to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales when he visits the town. The application will be sent to the proper quarters. A meeting of the Procession Committee was held on Tuesday evening when it was decided that Dr Harries, Mr Howell Evans, Chief Constable, and Mr C. M. Williams be requested to visit the railway station and select a spot at which the royal car- riages could be drawn up. It was decided that a letter should be sent to Sir Francis Knollys request- ing his approval of the programme drawn up. The Secretaries were instructed to invite two companies of volunteers from the neighbouring counties, the Royal Caidiganshire Artillery, now under the com- mand of Col Lloyd at South Hook, and the Naval Reserve to form a body guard to the royal party. At the close of the day's proceeding a dinner will be provided for the men. It was also resolved that the permission of Archdeacon Protheroe should be obtained to take the empty carriages through the old churchyard, which will be of great service. The Freemasons of South Wales are anxious to present an address to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales as Grand Master of the Order and have through their Past Master of the Province addressed a letter to the Mayor requesting the necessary permission. The letter will be laid before the proper authorities.
