Court of Criminal Appeal. A Bill, which recent events has proved to be necessary, was brought forward in the House of Lords this week, and the Lord Chancellor, in moving the second reading. explained that the purpose of the Bill was to give a person convicted on indictment of a n criminal offence an unrestrained right of appeal on all points to a Court of Criminal Appeal.

Windfalls for the Revenue. Six men have died during the financial year which will end to-day, leaving klo,ooo,ooO-over £ 1,000,000 each. It is probable, owing to these large estates, that the death duties have in the current year exceeded the Chancellor of tho Exchequer's expectations by nearly half a million.
Foreign News. France and Germany are now likely to settle their differences with regard 11 Morocco amicably. Satisfactory reports continue to be sent from Algeciras, and it is now considered almost certain that the Conference will finish its labours in a fortnight. The relations between England and Turkey with regard: to the occupation by the latter of Tabah, in the Siuai Peninsula, are some- what strained. No ultimatum has yet been sent by this country, but Sir Edward Grey says It is obvious that this aggression upon Kgyptian Administration cannot be allowed to continue."
To the Editor of the Prestatyn Weekly." SIR, —Will you let me say a very few words by way of reply to the malignant tirade of Protestant" in last week's Prestatyn Weekly"? We in Gwespyr, fully knowing the circum- stances and particulars connected with the present educational question, consider it an insult to our common sense to try and persuade us, as Protestant" does, that it is a question of Catholicism versus Protestantism. It is however well known that tvery effort is being made to make it so by the leaders of Protestantism. But 1. and others in Gwespyr, know it is not, and never has. been, a question of Catholicism versus Protestantism and we also well know that had it not been for the action of four or five Gwespyr men, aided by outsiders, the education question would have been finally and satisfactorily settled long ago. The aspiration of "Protestant to gain notoriety such as that of Latimer, Cranmer, and Ridley's, is both puerile and laughable. It is not, however, perhaps impossible that he may, some day, attain his object; but, I fear, not until he learns that others beside himself have principles and rights, and until he performs the first duty of every man, that is :-Mind his own business.—Yours &c., G WE SPY RITE.
To the Editor of tilt" Prestatyn Weekly." SIR,-Llanasa Protestant School, which is at his own door, is apparently quite over- looked by your correspondent Protestant." Now, he may as well insist on calling me Mrs Hughes" instead of Lady Mostyn, as eall Miss Wood a Sister of the Poor." She is nothing of the kind, and does not belong to the congregation so called. London and Brighton were quite satisfied with her first- class certificates, and so was the late Llewelyn Jones, but Protestant" presumes to say that the Talacre and Llanasa schools cannot be counted as good elementary schools. I will not mention Mr and Mrs Owen, who are on the Talacre School staff. Although of the same faith as Protestant," he scorns to notice them. Yet, living in Llanasa, he might live his life in peace and leave the parents of the Talacre children their liberty with peace.Yours, &c., ANNA MARlA MOSTYN.

DISTRICT COUNCIL ELECTION. l'u the Editor of the Prestatyn Weekly SlR,-I beg to call the ratepayers' attention to the election on Saturday, and to urge upon them the necessity of realizing their responsi- bilities. Very important matters will be brought before the Council, especially finance and sanitation, therefore the electors should only vote for gentlemen of undoubted busiuess capabilities. Vote conscientiously and fear- lessly, the ballot being absolutely socret.— Yours truly, Kersland. JOHN MILLER. —
GRANITE INGRATITUDE. Tv the Editor vf/he °, Prestatyn Weekly." An emblem of the above may be seen at the top of High Street. It was once a useful fountain, being erected by Two Sisters in memory of lovingfriends." That which was erect, and stood for temperance and blessing, has ^become a cast- away. Perhaps some of our aspiring candidates, when elected, will at once take action, before the visitors arrive, to remove this monument of neglect, by having it either re-erected or carted away to the lumber room. Yours, etc., SAHARA.
-+- The Proposed Middle Class Political Party. To the Editor of the "Pt*#.ttalyn Weekly." DKAR Snt.- With reference to this big order," we may take it for granted that its originators will naturally ask for a reasonable length of time for its development, so that, pending a further notice of it in the press, we might suggest that anyone who is known to our parliamentary representatives would be quite justified in writing to them, and inviting them to consider the desirability of introduc- ing a Unit tin j ( clause in the "Educational Amendment Bill," as to the prospective expenditure upon oar elementary schools. If the avowed intention of the present Govornment is carried out as to the vetoing or handicapping of denominational teaching, it necessarily follows the denominationalists will. as a practical restili, compel the County Council to extend their present schools on the unsectarian basis to e^rry oqt the original intention of the Bill. It is here where the risk of over-burdening the ratepayers comes in, by running up these new schools at the reckless figure of £14: to E15 per head of the children accommodated, instead of a reasonable sum of £7 or J28 per head, and the annual cost, consequently, jumped up from Mr Fosters' limit of 8d. in the £ in 1870 to 1/6 in too many of our towns. Two of such letters, as above sug- gested, have already been attempted, and have received courteous replies. And I am persuaded that a simultaneous string of such letters, from all the leading voters in the boroughs and counties, just before the intro- duction of the Bill, about three weeks hence, would have a direct influence upon our members in watching this crucial Bill in its committee stage through parliament, more particulary in its financial aspect.-I am, yours faithfully,
c' — FOOTBALL MATTERS. To the Editor of the Prestatyn IT eeldy Sir,—In your issue of the 16th itmt, there appeared a letter from the pen of ICr. J. P. Linnell, I presume, on behalf of the Selec- tion Committee disapproving the opinion I expressed through your meaium on matters pertaining to the club. I would like to point out to Mr Linnell the sole reason I had for expressing such opinion was, that I maintain that the policy adopted by the committee was inconsistent with good judgment, and detrimental to the success of the club from a playing and finan- cial point of view, and not for the sake of argument. The delay in replying has been brought about through my being away from home.— Yours, etc., StippOBiEju.
