FURTHER SUGGESTIONS. ( To the Editor of the "Prestatyn Weekly." • DEAK SiR, Resident" in your valuable t issue of last week, says in his interesting E letter that it would be well if Prestatyn had ] a tithe of the public spirit which has shown f "itself in every department of life of South- i "port." I have long been in touch with Southport, and would like to say that the public spirit now shown was not always exhibited. It is. due principally, it not wholly, to tho efforts of the Southport Amusement Commit- tee, which was started some years ago, and I would like to:snggest that the same should be done here. At the time they commenced, they had a stiff battle to fight with the Old Women" of the town,. who wished to preserve it in its quiet ways, and not to attract the. monied visitor, or the gay and festive tripper, for the simple reason that they had made their "pile," and presumably didn't care whether anyone else did or not. Those who had to depend for a living in Southport felt the need of providing attractions -P for the town, for;thk:purpose the, Apiuse,m £ »jt Committee was formed. Unlike Prestatyn, Southport has no attractions in beauty of scenery. It is a place converted from sandhills, and is as flat as possible, with a long stretch of sandy shore, where sometimes the sea cannot be seen even from the promenade, but through being "go ahead" and up-to-date in all things, it can attract thousands of-visitors, where Prestatyn-and other lovely places who do not as yet cater for the wants of holiday makers, cannot. Visitors pay their money, and will have their choice. If we won't give what they want, well, they stay away, and go somewhere else where they can get it. I wish some of jis had seen Port Rush, -which is, as everyone knows, the foremost seaside resort now in the North of Ireland— as I did about 25 y«j&rs ago, and they would not speak as they (io loveliness of scenery with little or nothing else to attract people. Port Rush was then a lovoly place with a magnificent rocky coast line, and the Giant's Causeway within eight miles. There was a huge hotel with only a caretaker looking after it I However, later on, a go-a-head genius came along and provided the visitor with splendid Golf Links, and many other attrac- tions. I., Result: They caine-and come-in shoals. I don't agree with" A Resident" as to the needs of a park,—Prestatyn has too many natural beauties for this. but would like to suggest the having of a band situated like that of Southport's in Lord Street, with trees and seats round the bandstand, and fairy lights hung over the trees at night. Whoever has seen Southport's fine street decorated in this way, with the music playing, on some fine night, won't forget it in a hurry. If Prestattyn folks willgcombine to get the golf ground going, a band, bicycle carnivals (giving prizes for the best costumes), sea swimming bath, etc., they will make Pres- tatyn into a second Port Rush, banging even Llandudno in point of popularity but they won't do it without! i Yours, etc., ANOTHER RESIDENT. +
Rabbit Hunting in High Street. Considerable amusement was created near the station the other day, a rabbit having wandered into High Street, where it was chased by men, boys, and dogs. After an exciting run poor bunny was captured by a postman.
Railway Contract Tickets. The Railway Company has decided to issue contract tickets for the motor train as follows: Betwen Rhyl and Meliden or Dyserth — £ 5 10/- for 12 months; £3 15/- 6 months; t2 5/- 3 months. Between Rhyl and Rhudd- lari Road, £ ± 15' 23, and XI 15/- res- pectively. Tickets for scholars under 18 years of age are issued at one half of above rates. Further particulars regarding the motor service will be found in another column.
Value of Land. The increase in the value of land in this neighbourhood since the inauguration of the railway is amply demonstrated by the follow- ing facts. Some time ago a resident communicated with the Ecclesiastical Commissioners regar- ding the purchase of a plot of land in the Voel. The Commissioners were then prepared to sell at C50 an acre, but for some reason negotiations fell through. A week or two ago the same gentleman wrote offering to purchase the land in.question anticipating securing it at a figure somewhere near the previous oiler. But his surprise can be imagined when he received a reply from the Commissioners stating they had already received more than one offer of t:100 per acre, and if he was desirous of purchasing he would have to go above that figure.
Caught Again. It might interest our readers to know that the man Arthur Jones, who was imprisoned some months ago for breaking into a house at Bryniau, has been arrested in Yorkshire fur a similar offence. He is now serving twelve months in gaol.
MR. JOHN CUNNAH. Departure from Henfryn Hall. Residents in Dyserth, Cwm, and Newmar- ket regret very much to learn that Mr John Cunnah is about to take his departure from Henfryn Hall, but we have been given to understand that he still means to take an interest in the affairs of the district, ami will -attend the Rural District Council meetings, and those of Board of Guardians at Holywell, as usual. Mr Cunnah intends to settle down at Prestatyn, so that although his removal may be a loss to the people on the hill, it will be a gain to those at the foot of it. it. is probable also thfttX Mr Cunftah's fu tare arrangements in Manchester Will be such as to allow him more leisure for home. duties. In this case he may once more become a candidate for Council honours at Prestatyn. An extensive tract of land on the Meliden Road has been acquired by Mr Cunnah this he intends to develop into residential pro- perty. A new road is to be constructed between the existing Meliden and Penrhwylfa Roads.

Inquest. The inquest on the body of Edward Evans, blacksmith, Owen's Terrace, who met his death by drowning, was held on Friday last week, at the house of Mr Isaac Hughes, Owen's Terrace. Mr F. Llewelyn Jones, the County Coroner, conducted the inquiry, and the jury was as follows Mr Thomas Jones, Schools (foreman), Rev. H. J. Stephenson, Messrs Joseph Parry, Penyffordd; William Roberts, Trap; Thos. Jones, postman Chas. Jones, Penyffordd; George Ellis, Glasdir Charles Thomas, Penybryn Thos. Roberts, Penyffordd D. Dayies, Hinegar R. Jones, Meirion Terrace J. W. Dickinson Robert Williams, Glandyfrdwy and Rd. Williams, Rhewl Fawr. The widow was closely questioned by the coroner, who felt that she was not stating all she knew. Dr E. Lloyd Owen and Sergeant Eley also gave evidence, after, which the coroner summed up, and the jury arrived at the following verdict: That Edward Evans committed suicide, but there was not sufficient evidence to show the state of his mind at the time., •• Deceased was buridd at Llanasa on Satur- day. The funeralcortege left the house at 3 p.m., a short service having been conducted at the house by the Rev. Howdl. Harris, Vicar. At Llanasa the Rev. W. Loyd ProtherOe took charge of the service: The 0 c funeral was well attended, showing how popular was deceased in the district.
Fatal Accident. In the early hours of Sunday morning, while waiting for the steamer Garth," due to arrive at Mostyn, David Price, of Connah's Quay, a River Dee Pilot, was knocked over- board by the boom from the pilot bout Lavinia Smith and 'drowned. The weather waa oxeeedingly rough, afe. tlie'. time, Price was only yetirs of ag^ had" but recently been married. The accident hap- pened in the river almost opposite Ffynnon- groew. A reward of £5 is offered for the body. Mr Price was an expert swimmer, and some time ago he was publicly presented with the Humane Society's medal and a purse for saving a life at the spot where he himself was drowned.
Accident. i A young horse-breaker named Willie Roberts, son of Mr Gongh Roberts, horse- breaker, Mold, while exercising a young colt belonging to Mr Hugh Blythyn, on the Tanlan road last Tuesday fell from the colt's back, owing to the, stirup-strap breaking, and was found on the road in an almost helpless con- dition yet sticking to the reins, by Mr Wm. Williams, Tanlan, who took charge of the horse. Just at the time Mr Parry, coalcarrier from Mostyn, happened to be passing, and the injured man was conveyed to Mr Hugh Blythyn's house, where Dr. Evans, who was sent for immediately, found that a leg was broken. Much sympathy is felt for the young fellow, who has made himself very popular since his advent to the place. Hevwas taken to his homo at Mold on Wednesday.
Concert. The annual concert in-connection with All Saints' was held on Wednesday evening a,t the Church School, under the presidency of Mr C. J. Batters, Tanlan, who also acted as condnctor in hisnsnal able manner. The artistes, of whom there was a goodly array, included the following:—Soprano, Miss Hughes, Chester Tenor, MrAlun Nicholson, Gwespyr Baritones, Messrs J. Morris Jones, (Rhyl), Frank Nicholson (Gwespyr), Edward Davies (PeacerddCalleatr); Pianoforte solo, Miss Ethel Pate, Chester; Recitations,. Mr J. Pryce Jones, Master Hywel Jones, and Miss Edith Roberts; also The Ffynnongroew Male Voice Choir under the conductorship of Mr Thomas Williams. The accompaniments were played by Mr Thomas Jones, the School. The proceeds of the concert are to be devoted to the Sunday School Clothing Club. The andience thoroughly enjoyed the rich feast prepared for it. Long may we stick to this class' of conceit, thereby cultivating the musical taste of the neighbourhood.
Excelsior. The following is extracted from a letter received last Thursday by Mr Jones. Council School, from his former pupil, Mr Hugh Thomas Jones, now at Mansfield College, Oxford, who has distinguished himself so recently by gaining a County Scholarship of jg35, and again a Scholarship of £ 60:— The Scholarship of £ 60 is for seven years, and was granted on the result of an exami- nation mainly classical, but partly theological, by a board consisting of prominent men from all parts of the country. There were five other candidates, one a Glasgow M.A., one an Oxford B.A., and another a Liverpool B.Sc. One was not received at all, and two gained exhibitions ( £ 50 downward). A Mansfield man states he was very lucky in gaining this scholarship, for it is only very seldom granted, an exhibition being the general thing. Judging from the tone of his letter, Mr. Jones' intentions are to work hard during the period of his studentship, aspiring to all the degrees within reach.
A Small Fortune in Scholarships. The total value of scholarships gained by Mr Hugh Thomas Jones amounts to the respectable total of £525.
Scholastic. At the Parish Council meeting held last Friday, the Council was compelled to accept the resignation of Mr T. Jones, schoolmaster, as manager of the Talacre R.C. Schools, it being found that the Education Code dis- tinctly stated that no schoolmaster may serve as manager of any elementary school. The Rev. Meurig Jones, Wesleyan Minister, was elected to succeed Mr Jones.
What does this mean? The following notico of meeting has been received by the two gentlemen representing the County and Parish Councils on the management of the Talacre Roman Catholic Schools A meeting of the Managers of the Talacre Roman Catholic School will be held on Friday the 20th day of October, 1905, at Talacre atj6-B0 p.m., to consider a communi- cation fromthe solicitors of the trustees oi the school desiring the managers to give up the school to the trustees, to be by them mtll- aged at the expense of Sir Pyers and Lady Mostyn as a private certified elementary school instead of a public elementary school as heretofore, and to pass the necessary resolutions and for any business which may arise.

Additional Train Service .at Prestatyn. In response to the pressure which has been brought to bear on the Railway Co. res- pecting the dearth of morning trains going Chester way, we are informed that the 10-43 Rhyl to Cnester train will in future stop when required to pick up at Prestatyn on notice being given at the station. This ar- rangement comes into operation at once. It is quite probable that at an early date the train will stop as hitherto to both set down and pick up passengers.
