TO THE ELECTORS OF PRESTATYN. LADlES 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. ,1_L1MMJ-U«11JMLHIIIII ■■■■IIHH IM™B —' 111 a
TO THE ELECTORS of the Prestatyn Urban District Council. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, — At the request of a number of influential ratepayers I beg to offer myself as a Candi- date for this Election. My policy is to judiciously spend the ratepayers' money in all matters which will improve the town and especially its sanitation. I am, Your obedient servant, T. G. TUCKER. 1 York Terrace, Prestatyn.
Urban District Council Election, 1906. TO THE ELECTORS. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, — My term of office 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 farther 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 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. 1. therefore, place myself unreservedly in your hands as rate- payers, and shall be grateful for your support. I am, Ladies and Gentlemen, Yours faithfully, OWEN J. DAVIES, The Vicarage, VICAR, Prestatyn.
TO THE ELECTORS of the Prestatyn Urban District Council. FELLOW RATEPAYERS, — Having received many pressing invitations, [ beg to offer myself as a candidate at the joining election for membership of the Pres- 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,
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 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 those matters we have had considerabre experience, and would willingly devote our time and abilities to your service. Believe us, b Yours obediently, \1 PETER ELLIS, WILLIAM INGLEFIELD, I T. PARRY WILLIAMS, HENRY WRIGHT. 1

IIIA llvestatjm lEeekljr. SATURDAY, MARCH 81, 1906. A WURD to the voters on the eve of the Council Election. Those who are satisfied with the work done by the retiring Councillors will of course do their best to have them re-elected. There is plenty of choice for those who think a change of repre- sentatives should be effected, six other candidates—including two independents— being on the list. A perusal of the candidates' addressee will reveal their individual aspira- tions, and it is to be hoped the most suitable I men will be elected. Vote early. It is refreshing to hear that a Prestatyn landowner is to be found public-spirited and generous enough to devote a portion of his land for improvement purposes. A plan has just been completed by Mr. J. P. Linnell, Architect, showing a new road to be con- structed between Meliden Road and Ffordd Isa, on land belonging to Mr John Cunnah. This plan also shows a proposed park, to be named Queen's Park, which is to be presented to the town. The matter will shortly come before the notice of the Council. L- L
Temperance Meeting. ] At Bethel Wesleyan Chapel on Monday, a temperance meeting was held under the auspices of the Welsh section of the Free, Church Council. Rev. Ben Williams oc- cupied the chair, Rev. M. F. Wynne opening the proceedings. Stirring addresses were delivered by Mr Hugh Edwards (Huwco Penmaen), Rev. Dr. Abel Parry, and others, an excellent meeting being brought to a close with the passing of votes of thanks to the chairman and speakers.

MR COWARD'S FUNERAL. The funeral of the late Mr W. H. Coward, J.P., took place on Saturday last. A large number attended to pay their last tribute of respect to the deceased, including local Councillors, tradesmen, and many prominent residents, the Flintshire Constabulary being represented by a posse of police in charge of Inspector Pearson (Rhyl). Previous to the remains being conveyed to Liverpool for interment, a short service was hild at Christ Church, at which the Vicar officiated. All the members of the family attended the funeral, and the sidesmen of Christ Church acted as bearers. There were many floral tributes, including one from members of the Constitutional Club. Mr E. D. Jones, Melidan Road, was the undertaker.—At Sunday morning's service the Vicar referred in feeling terms to the death of Mr Coward, and spoke of the great loss the church had sustained thereby. ]^ £ RS. COWARD and family desire to return thanks for the many expressions of sympathy extended to them in their recent bereavement. Rose Mount, Prestatyn.
COUNCIL SCHOOL CONCERT A Great Success. The annual concert given by the scholars attending Prestatyn Council School is one of the most popular local events of the year, the previous efforts of the children having won them a" very enviable reputation. Parents and friends always look forward with interest to the date set apart for this event, and the concert held at the Town Hall on Thursday night fully maintained the high standard of merit already gained. The hall was taxed to its utmost to con- tain the very large audience, among whom we noticed Lady Mostyn and Miss Mostyn of Talacre, and Mr Dawson. Through the generosity of her ladyship, all the scholars over 10 attending Talacre Schools were enabled to be present, and they seemed to thoroughly enjoy the whole proceedings. J. Bevan Evans, Esq., M.A., Director of Education for Flintshire, presided, and at the outset he read a telegram from Mr L. J. Roberts, H.M.I.S., apologising for his inability to attend. The first half-dozen items on the programme were sustained by the infants, and the little ones won hearty applause for the very clever way in which they went through their parts. Mastor Cyril Wright gave a well-executed violin solo, Miss Florrie Jones following with a recitation, the next number being an action C, song by standards I and II. A selection from Shakespeare's Henry viii" was given by five boys in Court dress, each of whom acquitted themselves most creditably, the buy taking the part of Cardinal Wolsey being particularly good. A cantata entitled Princess Tiny Tot was a representation of many of the nursery rhymes, in which a large number of scholars took part. This proved to be a very success- ful item, several of the rhymes being typi- cally represented, the spider, the pie, the black sheep, the see-saw, etc., each being introduced. The chairman then addressed the meeting, during which he remarked that the success of the Prestatyn School concerts was spoken of throughout the county. They could scarcely be otherwise than successful under the direc- tion of so able a musician as Mr Gr. W. Jones (applause). Preparation for these concerts supplemented school work in a delightful manner, in addition to fostering a taste for music. Speaking of school attendance, the Chair- man remarked that three years ago the average was but 76-7, or one-fourth of the children in the county were habitually absent. Now, however, there was a great improve- ment, the average being 85'2, or an increase in attendance of 81 per cent (applause). This meant that the Government grant to the county was increased by £4,000 per annum. Referring to the Prestatyn Council School the speaker said it compared very favourably with the majority of the schools in the county (applause). The average attendance in the county was 85 per cent, but in Prestatyn it was 89'6. Out of 22 schools in the district, Prestatyn had been second twice, and third twice. That was a very good record, and he also congratulated the teachers and managers on the excellent entertainment they were having that night (applause). Hearty votes of thanks were then accorded all who had taken part in promoting the success of the concert. Prizes for regular attendance were after- wards distributed. Eight pupils-Sem Jones, Cyril Wright, Hannah J. Roberts, Gwendolen Jones, Sarah Bloxham, Margaret Ellis, John Bloxham, and Thos. E. Roberts-were awarded silver medals, having recorded every possible attendance during the year. It is to be noted that the name of Gwendolen Jones has gained the special distinction of never having missed a single attendance for the last three years. During the year Idris F. M. Wynne gained a Pupil Teacher Scholarship, value l12, and T. E. Roberts, W. H. Gratton, and Mabel Hughes, each gained Entrance Scholarships. The remaining items on the programme included a short play, entitled A Surprise Visit," the characters being well portrayed by half-a-dozen girls, the position in which they were placed at times being highly amusing. A cantata entitled The Hare and the Tortoise was excellently given by the whole of the children. The principal characters were taken by Eva Williams, Eunice Williams, and Dorothy Roberts, who rendered their solo parts splendidly. The choruses were sung by all the children, being assisted by the school orchestra, with Mrs Yeoman at the piano. The whole of the entertainment reflected great credit on those who were responsible for the training of the children, all the items being very highly appreciated by the large and enthusiastic audience. The proceedings, which lasted nearly four hours, concluded with the singing of "Hen Wlad fy Nhadau" and "God save the King."
