TO THE ELECTORS OF PRESTATYN. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,— I have been asked by many of my fellow- townsmen—but by no political party—to offer myself as a candidate for a seat on our Town Council. I think my nine years residence in Prestatyn, during which I have tried to take an intelligent interest in the affairs of the town, and some business ex- perience, qualifies me to serve you usefully. I do not think politics should enter at all into purely local matters, and wish to stand as a Ratepayers' Candidate," without reference to political party or religious de- 'nomination, and to be free to take every question for the welfare of the town upon its merits. If yon elect me I promise not to serve the personal interests of anyone, and to advocate a policy of openness. While appreciating the value of committees for detail work, I very much deplore the growing disposition of our Council to conclude important public matters without open discussion, and think it unfair to ratepayers, when they attend monthly meetings, for the Council to announce itself in committee after giving the most meagre information. I do not believe in canvassing, but think all electors should be free from promise to make their own selection for their vote by ballot. If you elect me I will do my best to honestly represent you, and shall appreciate your confidence if you favour me with your votes. I am. Ladies and Gentlemen, At your service, JOSEPH BANKS.
Urban District Council Election, 1906. TO THE ELECTORS. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,— My term of offico as a member of the above Council now expires, and at the request of a large number of ratepayers I have agreed to seek re-election. During the mine years I have had the honour of representing you, I have endeavoured with due regard to economy, to efficiently further the interests of the town. Trusting that my past record will justify you in supporting my candidature, I am, Ladies and Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, JOHN PRITCHARD. Marine Villa, Prestatyn.
Re Prestatyn Urban District Council Election. TO THE RATEPAYERS OF PRESTATYN. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,— At the urgent request of several prominent ratepayers, I have consented to nomination as a Candidate for one of the vacant seats on the Urban District Council to be filled at the forthcoming election on Saturday, March 31st. It is quite evident that, with the rapid development of the town, several anxious and important problems will have to be faced in the very near future. It is highly essential, therefore, that these should have the earnest thought and atten- tion of men who are capable of assuming an 0 independent attitude, and of acting, if need be, without fear or favour, in the highest interests of the ratepayers only. If elected, I should endeavour to the best of my ability to discharge the duties incumbent upon me with enthusiasm and devotion, having regard only to the welfare of the town and the economy of the rates. I regret that circumstances will not permit of my paying a personal visit to each elector before the day of the poll. I. therefore, place myself unreservedly in the hands of the ratepayers, an d- awitit their verdict. I am, Ladies and Gentlemen, Yours faithfully, OWEN J. DAVIES, The Vicarage, VICAR. Prestatyn.
TO THE ELECTORS I of the Prestatyn Urban District Council. FELLOW RATEPAYERS,— Having received many pressing invitations, I beg to offer myself as a candidate at the coming election for membership of the Pres- 0 tatyn Urban District Council. Should you feel disposed to give me your support. it will be my one aim to study your interest, also that of the town. If you honour me by electing me as one of your representatives, my endeavour will be to improve the town at the least possible expense, consistent with efficiency. I do not consider that party politics should have anything to do with municipal affairs, but that all classes and parties should be considered. I therefore offer myself as an Independent Candidate. Again promising to guard as far as possible the interests of all my fellow-ratepayers. Yours faithfully, WM, MARSHALL, Bryntegid, Prestatyn, 22nd March, 1906.
TO THE ELECTORS of the Urban District of Prestatyn. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,— Having been requested by a number of electors to stand as candidates at the forth- coming election, we have great pleasure in acceding to their request. Should you do us the honour to elect us, we shall endeavour to do our duty to all in supporting any measure y b that may be brought forward for the benefit of Prestatyn, and the welfare of its people. We regard all public rights as a sacred trust. and should strenuously oppose all attempts to dispossess them of such rights, or to in any way encroach upon their privileges, endea- vouring at all times to gain every possible advantage for the benefit of all. The present we regard as a most critical time in the town's history, and it should be the special work uf the Council to see that nothing is done to injure its present or future prospects. • Above all. a watering place is looked to as a health resort, and should have special treat- ment regarding open spaces and sanitary arrangements. Those responsible for its government should vigorously oppose any- thing being done that would be injurious to the public health. In these matters we have had considerable experience, and would willingly devote our time and abilities to your service. Believe us, Yours obediently, PETER ELLIS, WILLIAM INGLEFIELD, T. PARRY WILLIAMS, HENRY WRIGHT. March, 1906.

THE three Overseers acting for the Parish of Prestatyn were dismissed or allowed to retire with scant ceremony, at the Council Meeting on Monday. The senior members, 0 y Messrs Peter Ellis and T. B. Griffith, asked to be relieved after each serving for a period of three years, and the name of Mr Banks— who twelve months ago had been forced to take the office-was not even mentioned for re-election. Why is this? He had done good work in the re-adjustment of unequally assessed property, and it would have been an act of courtesy bad the Council re-appointed him. The thanks of the ratepayers are due to these three gentlemen for their services in the past. fi-
DEATH OF MR. COWARD. His Public Career. It is with mueh regret that we chronicle the death of our respected townsman, Mr W. H. Coward, J.P., which took place at his residence, Rose Mount, Prestatyn, on Monday. Mr Coward had been in indifferent health for a long time, but in November last he had to take to his bed, so that his illness has been a lingering one. He bad been in a very weak state for weeks past, therefore the end did not come unexpectedly. Mr Coward was 59 years of age, and up to the time of his last illness was to all ap- pearances a robust, healthy man. The death of their eldest son some time ago was a Bad blow to both Mr and Mrs Coward, from which the deceased gentleman did not appear to recover. Having resided at Prestatyn for the past 20 years. Mr Coward became closely associated with local public affairs, being made a member of the Urban Council at its formation in 189(3. He was the second chairman of this body, and continued to be a member till his death. When in good health, he took an active part in all the doings of the Council, and was looked upon as a most useful member, gaining the highest esteem of his colleagues. In the days of the old School Board, Mr Coward was a member of this body. He was a Churchman, and held the Office of Vicar's Warden for the past three years his practi- cal knowledge being of great value during the carrying out of extensions to Christ Church. In politics he was a Conservative, and held the post of Chairman of the loeal Constitu- tional Club for 8 or 9 years. He was made a Justice of the Peace for the County of Flint in 1899. Through his long connection with Prestatyn, he had become well-known, and his genial manner had won him many friends. He was highly respected and much esteemed by all with whom he had come in contact. He owned a considerable amount of property in Prestatyn, and was also proprietor of a successful plumber's, etc., business in Lodge Lane, Liverpool. Mr Coward leaves a widow and family of eleven to mourn his loss, and much sympathy is extended to them in their bereavement. The interment will take place at Smithdown Road Cemetery, Liverpool, on Saturday afternoon. The cortege will leave the house at 11-15, a service being held at Christ Church at 11-30, and the remains will be con- veyed to Liverpool by the 12-23 train.
Former Resident's Death. The death is announced, at Hope, Cheshire, of Miss Cox, late of Edmondsley Villa, Pres- tatyn. The deceased lady was of an advanced age, and many will be able to call to mind her charitable disposition, and the energy 0 with which she and her nieces supported numerous good objects connected with the Church.
Advice. Do not miss the Council School Concert next Thursday, or you may regret having done so. Great preparations are now being made for a first-class entertainment. See programme. .11 0
Health of Prestatyn Favourable Medical Report. The monthly meeting of the Council was held on Monday evening. Mr Thos. Jones, J.P., presiding, the other Councillors in atten- dance including Messrs. J. B. Linnell, T. J. Scott, P. Ellis, A. Greenwood, Rev. F. Jewell, Messrs. J. Williams, Thos Hughes, T. Parry Williams, and J. Pritchard. It was stated that the Clerk had been called away on account of a family bereave- ment, and Mr Scott discharged the duties in his absence. THE LATE MR. COWARD. Before the business of the meeting com- menced, the Chairman referred in feeling terms to the death of Mr W. H. Coward, their colleague. In him they had had a most efficient Councillor and an honoured and respected townsman. Mr Coward had been a member of that body since its formation, and of which he was the second chairman. During his connection with the Council, he had done good sound work, and in conjunction with others had been the means of securing a J good water supply for Prestatyn. Mr Coward had always been most fair and courteous in all matters. He proposed a vote of con- dolence with Mrs Coward and the family in their sad bereavement. Mr Scott seconded, and endorsed the remarks of the Chairman regarding the good work done by Mr Coward, adding that their late colleague was connected with the Council before the majority of them. As a friend and acquaintance of 12 or 13 years, he could say that Mr Coward was very highly esteemed. The vote was passed with all members upstanding. On the proposition of Mr Peter Ellis, seconded by Mr J. Williams, it was arranged that all the members of the Council attend the funeral. UPHOLDING THE BYE-LAWS. The Road and Improvement Committee had been in communication with Mr H. D. McLaren regarding the taking over of Bodnant Avenue. The Council desired that the footways should be tiled or asphalted, but Mr McLaren suggested substituting gravel. The Council, however, refused to agree to this, and at Monday's meeting Mr Linnell was able to announce that Lady McLaren had agreed to eonform with the Council's bye-laws in this matter. POSTAL FACILITIES. The postal authorities having promised to C, place a pillar box in Hafod Road, the Council decided to make enquiries as to when the same was to be supplied. WATER SUPPLY. At the request of Mr Price, the Council has decided to supply water to Dyserth Castle, on the understanding that the owner pays for all pipes and lays the same. The Council do not bind themselves that there shall be a continuous supply, but they claim the pipe and also the right to connect to it at any point. Mr Wright, of the Talargoch Mine, had n written asking that a supply of water be given the new company who intended working the mine. The Council decided to grant the supply on similar conditions as to the old cornpany- a sum of £ 15 to be paid in advance each month. The question of laying a 3-inch pipe main along Marine Road was deferred. ALLEGED SMOKE NUISANCE. Mr W. Horsfall bad written the Council complaining of a smoke nuisance arising from lime-burning on the hillside. After discussion it was resolved that the matter be deferred, the clerk meantime to get counsel's opinion on the question. NEW BUILDINGS. Plans of additions to Marine Cottages, on Station Road, were approved. It was resolved that plans of a shop in Station Road for Mrs Jane Clarke be approved. Mr Dixon, Solicitor, Chester, had written the Council asking if they contemplated widening Bastion Road, and requesting that the building line be defined. It wm decided to reply to Mr Dixon to the effect that the Council had abandoned the idea of widening Bastion Road for the present, and that the building line was already defined. MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT. Dr Lloyd Roberts, the Medical Officer of Health, had submitted his annual report in committee. Mr Linnell said he was glad the report was so favourable, as regards the birth and death rates, and the Chairman in endor- sing these remarks, suggested that the Press be requested to publish it. This was agreed to. [The M.O. report has been returned for correction.—Ed.] ?■ (Continued on Page 4j.
