I INTERESTING ITEMS. I The" Messiah." Our readers should be reminded of the Choral Society's production of Handel's Messiah," which is fixed for performance on Thursday the 17th. The fact that Mr G. W. Jones occupies the position of conductor is sufficient guarantee for a rendering worthy of this great oratorio. The principals engaged. are prominent in musical circles, and many will remember that the bass soloist (Mr A. M. Proctor) has several times visited Pres- tatyn in that capacity with great acceptance. The well-known orchestra of Mr Horace Haselden is also engaged for the occasion. Tickuts cUt now to be obtained from members of the Choral Society, and seeing that a full house is necessary in order to make the con- cert a fianancial success, it is hoped that resi- dents and visitors will render every support. Camps at Prestatyn. We are glad to be able to state that the Manchester Battalion of the Boys' Brigade will again make Prestatyn its headquarters during Whitsuntide, when about 900 will be under canvas. At first it was thought the Brigade would not encamp at Prestatyn this season, owing to a difficulty regarding the ground they had last year, but Mr Williams (Plas- tirion) was approached, and a very amicable arrangement was come to with the brigade authorities for the hire of a field on Meliden Road, close to Bryntirion. The Adelphi Lads' Club, numbering some- where near 200 members, are also coming.to Prestatyn again at Whitsuntide, and will en- camp in a field next to that occupied by the Boys' Brigade. Wedding. On Thursday at Prestatyn Church the marriage took place of Mr John Munroe, of Talacre, Llanasa, eldest son of Mr and Mrs Munroe, of Aberfeldy, Scotland, with Miss Mary Jane Jones, daughter of Mr John Jones, Nant Farm, Prestatyn. The officiating clergy were the Revs. 0. J. Davies, M.A., vicar, and W. Loyd Protheroe, B.A., vicar of Llanasa. The bride, who carried a beautiful bouquet of flowers, was given away by her father. The bridesmaid was Miss D. G. Jones, Morvan, Rhyl, and Mr J. W. Jones of Ynys Farm, near Rhyl, acted as best man" to the bridegroom. Relatives and friends were afterwards entertained to a wed- ding breakfast at Nant, when the toasts usual to such occasions were duly honoured. Later in the day the happy couple departed by train for Manchester where the honeymoon is to be spent. Removal. We notice that Mr T. E. Hughes, chemist, is removing from his old shop to more commodious premises at Victoria Buildings, High Street, where he hopes to be able to be in a position to cope with an increasing trade.. Address to Lord Milner. With reference to the public address to Lord Milner which a committee of noblemen and gentlemen are promoting local signatures to be attached to the address are now being secured by Capt. Miller. Close on 100 names (which are confined to adult gentlemen) have already been gathered from this district, and it is expected many more will be forthcoming. Our Local Parliament BY A RATEPAYER. The Council have made a new departure by limiting the several committees to seven members. Under these circumstances longer debates may be expected, and more informa- tion will be given to the public if our Editor can afford the necessary space. This is as it should be, and it is to be hoped that rate- payers, when they get a larger insight into the sayings and doings of their representatives will have less cause for complaint. Already, two Council meetings have been held, both of them extending over about two hours and a half. One effect of this extended discussion will be that the Chairman will find it neces- sary to more strongly enforce the standing orders. <:I> <I> <I> The Council will be busy next week dis- cussing the estimates in committee. When these are approved of the next step will be to fix the rate for the year. The general impression seems to be that it will remain at the same figure as last year. That will probably satisfy-the ratepayers, for even after the very optimistic statement of the late Chairman no one expected a reduction in the rates, and there have been many who feared an increase. Considering that 20 per cent is now taken off to form the rateable value, 5/- in the £ is not excesssive. It is only equal to about 4/3 with 10 per cent reduction as formerly.
