Grand Bazaar and Summer Fete at Llandudno. THE DUKE OF CLARENCE MEMORIAL CHURCH. Probably the most extensive effort ever made in j North Wales to raise money for any good object bas taken place this week at Llandudno. It is seldom that a bazaar extends over six days; and it is also rare that an event is honoured with such a long lift of distinguished patrons and patroneaaes as the grand bazaar and Summer ftte opened on Monday in Riviere's Concert Hall in aid of the building fund of the Duke of Clarenoe Memorial Ghurob. The history of this new church movement is too well known to need any lengthy reference now. We re- member being present at a garden party at Glodd- aeth nearly three yMM ago, when the fand was iuMgartted. Lord Moetyn, with characteristic generosity, altered an excellent site for the propo1e4 church ja East Llandudno; Lady Augusta Mostyn, also with characteristic generosity, contributed the munificent donation of £1000 to give the building fund a siatt. Since that time the amount la batd has inc. eased to £4000, the contraot for enoting the nave has been let for 94000l and the work is proceeding apace. It is hoped that half the AM required to complete the present contract will be raised before the week is out. In any case it will not be the fault of the vioar, the Rev. F. G, Jones, and his band of workers, if such is not thsoase. For months have the Ladies' Committee, the vioar, with his energetic curate, the Rev. D. W. Davies, end the treasurer, the Hon. H. Lloyd Mostyn, worked with an assiduity and perse- verance worthy of all piaise to make this movement a success. And the enterprise ahown beate the record. Alter due deliberation, the Committee re- solved, at much oost, to engage Riviere's Concert Hall, his grand orchestra and vocialists, and the Victoria Palace grounds for the week. This was a large order;" but was in all probability the beat thing to do for the convenience of the stallholders and the comfort of the general pnblic. With the present unsettled state of the weather, it has cer- tainly turned out for the best.

On the platform were the Dowa -or Lady Mostyn, Lord and Larty Moetyn, f-ady Florentna HOlZhep, Lady Isabel Bliffb the Hon. Mr Hatiry and Mrs Lloyd Mostyn, t'le Biabop of St. A.pr, Rev. Dr. Hamilton, Archdeacon cf Noithombeniiod, Raw. F. G. Jones (vicar), <fe.\ I Lady FLOMNTIA HUOHM, la declaring the bazaar open, expressed her pleaanr* at being honoured with an invitation to perform that function. She admired very much both the build- iDlllind everything around them and wished every success to the bazaar (applause). Tbe BISBOF remarked that he had been asked to move a vote of thanks to Lady Florentfft Hughes for her kindness in coming there that day. He did to with very genuine sympathy because the thought bad passed through his mind that perhaps Lady Florentia Hughes like himself felt her appetite for bazaars bad not been altogether nniatU> flert daring the last mouth (laughter). The open. ing of bazaars to ajpriiical eye did not perhaps oom- nit-nd itself as quite an episcopal fnnotiou. It could be very well got through, perhaps more attrac- tively, without the interference of a bishop, for a bishop moat make a speeob-(Iau h'ter)-wbich was the most unprofitable part of Its business. But when he confessed he had not come there as a bishop aimply to be present at the opening, but to sbow II bishop of thedlOOlle his interest in and appreciation of the very great work going on in the parish of Bglwyarhos and to aak all Churohmen both there and throughout the diocese and beyond the border to support the vicar in his work of Church building. The Rev. F. G. Jones required Wwat ZIO,000 to oomplete the ereotlon of the new ohnreh. He hoped it was not out of place to remind tbeir English brethren that the new churoh accom- modation waa largely necessitated by the visitors who came there in the Bummer. They had there- fore a strong olaim upon the generous support of those who enjoyed the fine air and beautiful scenery of Llandudno (applause); and if they did not attend the bazaar he hoped they would send the vioar a subscription (langhter and hear hear). Some of them might say that a bazaar required justification, that it was a means of raising money requiring something to justify it. The area of charity was more or less severely defined when any charitable object was put before the public, the number of those who supported it was more or less a limited number. The same people really sub- scribed largely to oharitable objects, and when a new fund was started and largely supported, it really seemed to mean not an increase in obaritable gifts, but rather a displacement. He was afraid the moral they must draw was that the proportion between wealth and charity was not what it should be, and that thtre was amongst all classes a great deal of selfishness In this matter. There was a large number ready to oome forward and do their doty in supporting oharitable institutions and building ohurohes; but it must be admitted by all who Btudied the matter that a basaas was a means of reaching those who were rather sluggish in assisting charitable objects. One other thought must suggest itlelt to all. He thought they must be filled with admiration at the energy and zeal the vioar had shown in the work of the Church in tbat dicoess at the present moment (applause). It shows our confidence in the future of the Church in Wales; that we are going on steadily with our work; that we do not Intend to slacken our hands nor carzeal in any measure what- ever; thai, we intend to develop that work whenever it may fib neoeesary (loud obeeri). The Rev. F. G. JONCS said: I have very great pleasure in seconding the vote of thanks to Lady Florentia Hughes, for her kindness in coming here to-day. We have very pleasant recolleotione of a bazaar opened by Lady Florentia Hughes in 1892, and which proved to be a very great success, realis- ing the net sum of 21350 for the new church. This time we have taken this beautiful hall and grounds at great cost, and have secured with it the famous orchestra of Mons. Riviere, which will prove to be a great attraction. Musiohath oharins." I hope, however, that the beaatiful stalls, so beautifully adorned, will have equal charms, and that whilst you are enraptured with the beautiful music you will not forget your duty to the stall holders. Since the bazaar of 1892 we have made new friends. and we bave amongst us Eeveral new stallholders, and we are much indebted to them for coming for- ward to help us. I would, however, emphasise the fact that we have many of the stallholders of 1893, which speaks well for the loyalty of our friends. And I would convey them my deepest gratitude for the noble way in which they have for the second time come forward to help as. Con. oidering what has been done by these apeeial efforts, the gentlemen will exonee me when I say ?bt tl? present portion of the Memorial Church 'a to a considerable extent been built by the ladies of this neiRbbourbood. I need not waste time to explain further the object of this bazaar. It is one which has special olaima upon all Churchpeople, inasmuch as there can be no manner of doubt or hesitation in anyone's mind us to the urgent need of a ohnreh in this portion of the town of Llandudno. In the winter we have a population of neatly 3000 souls, and in the summer of about 7000. The old churoh, whiob is a mile-and-a-half away, only accommo- dates 200 people, and the very fact that on Sunday evenings we have in this conoert hall a congregation of six or seven hundred people is a positive proof of the genuineness and urgency of our ctee. The Building Committee of Gentle- men have done all that could be done, and are providing a church which can be enlarged to meet future requirements. The portion of the ohurih which is now being built is the nave only, at a cost of £7000, and it is built on a site given by Lord Mostyn. The sum of £ 4000 has been collected (applause). We theretore appeal to friends of the Church for the farther sum of X4000 to make up the deficiency. It is said that times are bad. But even in bad times the people require Church services and the ministrations of the Church, and these things oannot be given with. out suitable buildings. Tbe residents have done much, and are atill doing their utmost, and we invite visitors to the town of Llandudno to join hands with us in this work. The president of the Bazaar Committee, Lady Augusta Mostyn, together with all the ladies of the committee, have apared neither time nor trouble in carrying out what is at the beet of times a difficult matter, namely, the organisation of tbe many details of a successful bazaar (applause). The resolution was carried tiem. con., and M. Riviere's Orchestra played the National Antbem, Madame Dewa ainging the solo. A SATMISB BOUND THS STALLS. When all the ladies are eager for the frky-we mean when they are anxions to devote all their energies towards converting their wares into the sinews of war," it is no light matter for the repre- sentatives of the Press to get details for the papers, even if their penoils are sharpened at both ends. However, we did oar level best. We never saw a more elaborate array of wares at a bazaar; and we certainly never belield a more polite army of stall hoiders-of oourse they were not at all exaoting in prioea-tban those under present notice. The following details will give but a bare outline of the splendid collection of artioles; and we would adviss those who want to enjoy a good day, and at. the same time help in a laudable movement, to viait the bazaar between now and Friday. The articles on Lady Augusta Mostyn's stall were ahicfly stained woodwork by her ladyship and Lady Isnbtl Bligh also olooks, screens, tables, Ac., oil paiDtings and water-colour drawings by Sir Horatio Lloyd, the Hon. Misses Mostyn, Mies Frances Wynne,and the Ladies Scott; contributions frcmMrs Kueenhaw, and other friends, notably Mrs Barker, The Oaks, Miriicld, Torks, who is taking a warm interest in the ohoroh and had sent a novelty for a dip" for children in the form of an imitation wedding cake and a model doll, and numerous other articles. Ladv Pryce Jones had secured an excellent collection of saleable artioles, and we noted that bar ladyship had carefully avoided having any needlework or fauoy work. doubtless for the reason tbat, as a rule, bazaars are overdone with such articles. Prominent at this slllll were baskets, work baskets, Indian vases, Indian inlaid boxes of various sizes, oard cases, purses of all descriptions, and an endless variety of photo frames, writing cases, electro goods, cutlery, watoh chains, Japan- ese trays; a nice assortment of rare chioa, iuolu- ding several sets of Minton ohina; a good aasort. ment of jewellery, brooobes, chains; paper knives in great variety games of various kinds, and lots of other odds and euds. Mra Finoham (Deganwy) had the charge of the three olergy stall., one of which was entirely sup. plied ?4th most beautiful articles by Mra Bellamy, VI?dudi3o The other two stalls were Uden with choice and fascinating goods contributed by Mrs PAqp, Mrs Adey Wells, Mrs Healey, MrsTndor Owen, Mra Wood (Bodlondeb). Mrs Fincham. and others. Some lovely articles tad been sent by Mrs Bees from Biarritz, including t. tttge collection ot handsome Spanish fans in lace, aud also baud- painted. The tambourines were a greit feature in this assortment, and had illustrations of bull-flihti and other Spanish scenes painted on them. The silver ornaments were yi-ry taking suil most mode- rate in price. Mrs Rees also sent t>om* bandaonoe sofa oushions. Mrs Healey contributed some charming ftnd beautiful things from Liberty's in London, which alwsys commend a quick and ready sale. ,She aleo sniit some pretty dolls and orna- ments. Mrs Adev Wells Ind Mrs Tudor Owen have contributed a larile and varied collectioo of every, gort. of Dsefol and pretty articles to suit every pooket, u they range from sixpenoe to 93 io price, Mrs Weod (Bodlondeb) coutributod two pretty bed- room f,ur told soreens and other article.

Cox, Md mMy othem MM Hugh 8. Gougb, of OMrhnn, held the Indim atall, assisted by Colonel H. S. Gough, C.M.G., Captain Allen Googh, R. W.P., and numerous friends, Many of the beautiful silks, pboulkarris, embroideries, carved frames, and onrios shown here have been sent from Simla and were oolleeted by Colonel A)gemon Dur-d, O.B., military MCMtMy to hM tbM?tmcy the Vicuoy and, tmeeiaUy chcaen and personally MteoM by har Excellency the Countess of Elgin, The natives of the Northern Himalaya have supplied the beautiful black buck heads with their pretty twisted ebony black horns, just the things to tempt a sportsman for his entrance ball or smoking-room. From Jeypore and Serinuggan Mrs Gough has reoeived the nioet unique tables of copper and brass with superbly, carved quaint settings of oedar wood. Anrong tM exhibits were shown a oarved screen four-fold from Simla quite exquisite, and the work of one native, who is celebrated there, for ber skill. A tempting purchase for anyone fond of art was a spirited olever oil painting of a Royal Artillery trumpeter in fighting kit, riding down the mountainous passes of Afghanistan. This WAS specially sent and painted toi the stall at Colonel Gooph's suggestion by the well-knowo artist, G. D. Giles, whose fine work called Saving the guns at Maiwand waa exhibited to Her Majesty the Queen at Windsor Castle this summer and afterwards in Pall Mall, where it attracted great admiration. From Ooteoamund was sent the red, white, and gold lacquer work, and very perfeot specimens,also quaint baskets, fans, and Bastern silks of curious device." These were sent by General Sir Richard Stewart, K.C.B., commanding the station. Luck- now provides silver ornaments, bowle,idols, banglea, and braes work, whilst beautiful little silver mice, rats, peacocks, sacred balls, and oows came from Muttra in Bengal. In tbese days, when that great engineering triumph, the Suez Caoal, haa placed ns within touch of India and the gorgeoua East, it is remarkable to feel how just three months ago these Eastern productions were still in the hands of the natives of India, and now they adorn the centre stall for this large bazaar in our Queen of Welsh seaside places, and we hope the great oause for wbioh we have all worked so hard will benefit largely by this belp from the far Fast, Tbe Bombay Sohool lof Art have sent two large consignments of qusint pottery. A very pretty dress was worn by Mrs Hugh SuUef Gougb at the Indian Stall. It is made in a soft white clinging material, bordered with a handsome gold Indian design. Across the bodice is worn & broad pale blue watered silk 8ash, the colour of the order of the Star of India, with the star riobly painted on the silk in the left side. The head dress worn with this dress is composed of white and gold soft Indian muslin, with an aigrette plume mounted on one side, held with a gold star. At the stmo stall Miss Boyd Rochfort, Middleton-park, was attired in a white muslin gown, skirt finished with frill of embroidery embroidered muslin bodioa, with tanda of ribbon across, ended with large rosettes, and finished at waist with ribbon belt and bow falling to the end of skirt; pale blue sash stamped with "Star of India worn from the right shoulder under the lato a very pretty soft Indian whi te mosliu cap stamped with gold was worn with this dreas. Mrs Edminson, Tanybryn, had a very pretty stall, and her helpers were Mbs Priestnall, Nea- obatel, and Miss Johnston, of Huddersfteld. The other stalls, too numerous to detail, were equally successful. Not content with the usual ran of business, the committee went in for a "Live stock and farm pro- duce tent."

Vincent Walker gave humorous sketches in his wellknown good style, and Messrs Perry and Allan's Minstrels appeared in the grounds at six p.m. The bazaar waa crowded iu the evening, and at tea p.m. a grand display of fireworks was given in the grounds by Messrs Pain and Sons, London, some ot tho devices being very pretty. Messrs Rbydwen Jocea sad Davies assisted to decorate the stalls and Messrs Jones and Payne had charge of the decorations in the gardens. On Tuesday, there was again a large attend- ance at the opening ceremony. The bazaar was declared open by Lady Isabel Biigb, who ex- pressed her pleasure in doing Sl). The Ven. GIOKQR HANe HAMILTON, D.D.. Arch- deacon of Northumberland, and Canon of Durham, proposed a vote of thanks to Laiy Bligh, and said they would be glad to learn that tte rult on Moo- day had been eo far successful as to r-jaliee £316 to- wards the good object in view (applause). The vitality of the Chorcb in Wales was well seen by such events as that. In the extremuNorth thoy were very proud of the fact that the Anglican Church existed iu the seventh centuary, but Christianity was preached in Wales two centnries before that. This was a fact of which the liuo:p],lity should be proud (applause). The Rev. WILLIAM DAviss.rector of tiangwstenin, seconded the resolution, ifial it was eanitsd with acclamation. Wednesday's proceedings wera opened by Lady Louisa Hamilton, of Northumberland. Chancellor HUGH JeNits, Llaarwst, moved the vote of thanks, a-id observed tkv the Vioa; of Llanrhos deserved great credt fcr being bold enough to initiate tbe new church movement. When so muoh was being done for the Cbnrch, and perhaps by some against it, it waa a source of satis- faction that there were amoogiC them those who were in earnest, and did eucce-tf JI work (ap- plause). Captain GOUGH seconded the reso'ution, and it was enthusiastically carried. The receipts up to Tuesday ci¡;ht. were rather more than £600.
