SATURDAY'S RESULTS. Denbigh (h) 3 Abergele 1 MATCHES FOR SATURDAY. Llandudno v. Prestatyn at Llandudno. Hhyl Victoria v. Ruthin at Rhyl. At a meeting of the Prestatyn Football Club on Wednesday evening the financial position of the Club was again gone into. After a lengthy discussion it was decided to carry on the Club, but to make a special appeal for better support. It is to be hoped supporters will make an effort to keep the Club going. Seeing that the Committee has placed the Club on such a footing, it behoves the supporters to see that it does not fall back for the lack of support. On Saturday the Blues will journey to Llaududno, and a couple of points would do the Club a lot of good. The following is the team selected, and if the players only turn out they should give a good account of themselves: Goal, W. Glass; backs, J. T. Williams, and J. W. Jones halves, R. Jones, Bell Jones, and Tom Brooks forwards, J. Parry (or J. Roberts), R. Jones, E. Hollbrook and A.-L. Watts. It will be noticed that the team contains 7 Prestatyn players, and only 2 from Rhyl, 1 from Gwaenysgor, the other being a new man from Meliden. But where is Pryce Jones, and how long has Rath Jones been signed on ? The rest of the team is good and should do well. It is stated that E. Mostyn assisted Abergele at Denbigh last week. Seeing that Prestatyn held his papers at 3-30 on the previous Saturday, Mostyn could not have been elegible. WiU the Prestatyn Secretary please note the above.

A letter was read from Mr Williams, Gwespyr, the tenant of a field at Gelli Bant, Picton, complaining that the public were trespassing on his land owing to the bad state of the footpath, and asking the Council to have the same repaired. The path not being shown in the ordnance map, it was proposed by the Rev. E. PiercJ, and seconded by Mr T. Jones, that the matter be postponed for further inquiries. TANK AT RHEWL FAWR WELL. A complaint was made that some person had stolen the pipe which conveyed the over flow water from the above tank. The same thing having taken place before, it was resolved to call the attention of the police to the matter, also to publish notices ottering a reward for information which would lead to conviction of the offenders. REPAIR OF FOOTPATHS. It was passed that the Brake, Well Lane, and Garth Footpaths, should be repaired, the Chairman and Mr Owen Owen to see that the work was carried out satisfactorily. ANNUAL PARISH MEETING. It was decided two years ago that the Annual Parish Meeting should be held alter- nately in each ward. Accordingiy it was proposed by the Rev. E. Pierce and seconded by Dr. Lloyd Owen, that tho meeting should be held this year at the Council Schools, Gwespyr, on Monday, Maich 19th, at 7 p.m. FREE CHUUCH COUNCIL. A letter was received from the secretary of the above Council, asking them to support the opposition which they (the Free Church Council) were making, to the renewal of the license of the White Lion Inn. Dr. Lloyd Owen proposed that inasmuch as there was a change of tenancy in this house, that this Council should support the efforts of the Free Church Council. This was seconded by Mr Thos. Jones and carried. It was also resolved that a deputation should be appointed to represent this Council at Pres- tatyn on Tuesdpy next. THE QUEEN'S UNEMPLOYED FUND. A circular letter was read from Mr P. Harding Roberts asking for the approximate number of unemployed in the Parish.

A copy of the Analyst's report on the water in the above Well, was read as follows The sample was colourless, but slightly turbid. Taking into account that the sample was somewhat turbid after the heavy rain, the water is of fair quality, and if the sur- roundings of the supply were satisfactory, it is suitable for drinking and domestic purposes."
The Railway Extension.
The Railway Extension. As the Light Railway Commissioners are not compelling the company to erect a bridge 0 at the foot of Tre Caste]! hill at present, it is likely that the new extension will be com- pleted by about the end of May. The work is to be started immediately.
Lecture. At the Coronation Hall on Wednesday night. Mr Caradoc Mills, Llanrwst, delivered an interesting and instructive Welsh lecture on The Wonders of Astronomy," illustrated with limelight views. There was a good attendance, presided over by Rev. J. Kelly, in the absence of Mr John Gunnah. The lecture, which was highly appreciated, was given in connection with the local Welsh Wesleyan cause.
Peculiar Methods. At the St. Asaph Rural District Council meeting last week, plans for alterations to Mount House, Bryniau, were disapproved. But it was stated that the alterations had been completed before the plans were laid before the Council.
Sunday School Meeting.
Sunday School Meeting. The quarterly meeting in connection with the C.M. Sunday Schools in the Rhuddlan District was held at Dyserth on Suudey, and was well attended. At the morning meeting the president (Mr T. D. Jones, C.C., Rhyl) and the secretary (MrJ. T. Davies, Prestatyn) made statements as to the present state of the schools, the latter reporting that there had been an advancement made in all respects since the meeting was previously held in Dyserth in 1904.

Hughes (Dyserth), and Messrs J. Parry (Waen)' and W. Parry (Rhuddlan) spoke on Home influence and the Sunday School." The next district meeting will be held at Vale Road, Rhyl. __n_
Decision as to Bridge.I
Decision as to Bridge. With reference to the inquiry respecting the Newmarket extension reported in our columns last week, we have received the following communication from the Secretary to the Light Railway Commissioners :— Light Railway Commission, 54, Parliament Street, London, S.W., 6th February, 1906. L & N.W.R. (DYSERTH AKD 'NEWMARKET) LIGHT RAILWAY ORDER. To the Editor of the "Prestatyn Weekly." SIR,- With reference to the proceedings at the Inquiry held by the Light Railway Com- missioners at Prestatyn on the 29th January in respect of the application for the above- named Order, I am directed by the Commis- sioners to inform you that, having inspected the proposed point of crossing of the road numbered on the deposited Plans 2 in the parish of Dyserth, they were satisfied that the construction of a bridge to carry the road over the line would involve considerable works, and they were of opinion that the cost of such a bridge would be a greater burden than the prospects of the scheme as a remunerative undertaking may fairly be expected to support. They have accordingly decided to adopt in the present Order the proposal that the road in question should be crossed on the level, provided that gates shall be erected at the level crossing and kept closed against the railway, and that signals visible at a sufficient distance by night and also by day to the satisfaction of the Board of Trade shall be maintained so as to indicate when the gates are opened for the passage of a train. Under these conditions the Commissioners anticipate that such a level crossing should in practice be found free from risk to persons using the road with any reasonable care, but the Order will further provide that the Board of Trade, if at any future time it should appear to them to be necessary for the public safety, may require a bridge to be made at the expense of the Railway Company. I am, Sir, Your obedient Servant, ALAN D. ERSKINE."
The Station. We were under the impression that the Parish Council were going to petition the Railway Company to move the station from the present spot to a more convenient site, but as yet there does not seem to have been anything done in the matter. The approach y r, to the present station is in a most undesirable state, and it would be to the advantage of all concerned if some improvement was effected before the season is upon us.
Opposition to the Railway.
Opposition to the Railway. Bills have just been issued announcing that a wagonette will leave Tan-ilan every Mon- day afe 1 o'clock for Rhyl.
TRELOGAN NEW SCHOOL.
TRELOGAN NEW SCHOOL. Meeting of C.C. Sub-committee. The sub-committee appointed at the last meeting of the Flintshire Education Com- mittee held a meeting at Trelogan C.M. Chapel Vestry on Wednesday. There were present Mr Muspratt (Chair- man), Mr Sidney Taylor (Chairman of the Building Committee). Mr Summers (Chair- man of the C.C.), Messrs A. M. Ralli, and Robt Jones (the local representatives), Mr S. Evans (County Architect), and Mr Ll. Jones (Secretary to the Education Committee). A deputation, from the townships of Axton and Trelogan, for whose benefit the school is to be built, was introduced by the Rev E. Piece, and am jngst their number were Messrs John Evans, Owen Ellis, Edward Thomas, Ed. Williams, Shop and Ed. Evans, (Guard- ian for the district). Mr Llewelyn Jones read a communication from the Board of Education which stated in the opinion of the Board a school was neces- sary, but asked the committee to consider if a smaller school than that proposed by the Committee for 120 children would not serve the purpose. Ho then stated that on a census made by the Committee it was shewn that there was 182 children in that district alone. Mr Pierce then addressed the committee on behalf of the deputation, and stated he was aware that a petition had been sent to the Board of Education in opposition to the pro- ject. He, however, wished to impress on the committee the necessity of the school, and the fact that the population was not dependent on the continued working of the Waen mine, as had been stated in the petition, but was the normal population of the district for the past 80 years. Many of the workers at Trelogan mine did not live at Trelogan, all the houses being already occupied. He produced a letter written in 1869 shewing that the proposal for a school was no new thing but dated back over 37 years. Mr Owen Ellis spoke strongly in favour of the school accommodating at least 120, as he was sure it would be immediately filled to that extent. In answer to a question from the Chairman as to had any change taken place in the neigh- bourhood since the last visit of the committee, Mr J. Fvans stated that the number of child- ren had increased by 8, as several families had come to the neighbourhood. He con- sidered the proposed school to accommodate 120 was none too large. Several other members of the deputation spoke to the same effect, all being agreed that 0 the school should accommodate at least 120 children. The chairman thanked the deputntMs which then withdrew. The committt e then visited several sites and will report in due course to the Education Committee on the most suitable one.
Lurry Accident. On Friday last week a serious accident occurred ne.ir Trelogan. It seems that a. man in charge of a lurry with two horses were carrying weights for testing the weighing machines at Point-of-Ayr Colliery and Trelogan Mine. In coming from the colliery to Trelogau, when near the West Trelogan mine, he fell from the lurry, the wheels pas- sing over him, and was dragged for some yards. He was picked up unconscious, and was removed to Avongoch Inn, where Dr. Owen attended to him. Subsequently the man was taken home to Holywell, where he Is under the medical care of Dr. Jones. Praise is due to Mr Moses Hughes, Arcade, I. Axton, and Moses Parry, Avongoch, for their services to the injured man.
