Gronant. Council School Concert. The annual Council School Concert was held on Friday, presided over by the Director of Education for Flintshire (iYIr J. Bevan Evans, M.A.) The programme was mainly sustained by the scholars, songs were also given by Miss A. M. Edwards, who was enthusiastically received by the audience; pianoforte solos by Miss Gwladys Hughes, who is devoting her attention to instrumental music with exceptional success and a trio by Misses Edwards, Evans, and Thomas. The scholars who took part individually were Elizabeth D. Hughes, Buddug Wilson, Alun Wilson, Esther Roberts, J. E. Hughes, Wilfred Wilson, and Rosina Parry. The scholars did their work so admirably as to elicit much praise from Mr Bevan Evans, and Mr Fidler was highly complimented by him on his success as a teacher. In the course of a most valuable speech Mr Bevan Evans also praised the parents of the neighbourhood for their faithfulness in sending their children regularly to school, the attendance at Gronant being very satisfactory. He also referred to the success of the evening classes last session, remarking it was quite exceptional for a greater number to attend the evening school than the day school. He strongly advised the young people to try to keep up their record this session. Prior to the concert all the scholars were pro- vided with tea, the arrangements being in the hands of a committee of the following ladies Misses J. Thomas, M. A. Jones (The Farm) M. Proflit, M. A. Jones (Woodlands), and Gladys Owen, and a vote of thanks was ac- corded to them and to all who helped in con- nection with the entertainment, on the pro- position of the Chairman, seconded by Mr William Evans. A hearty vote of thanks was given to Mr Bevan Evans. on the motion of Edward Jones, Mr William Thomas seconding.

GWAENYSGOR. New School Sanctioned, Site Approved, and Plans Passed. In a letter to the County Council, dated 15th October, the Board of Education, through Mr J. E. Talbot, definitely sanctioned the erection of the Council school at Gwaen- ysgor, and approved of both the site selected and the plans prepared. The accommodation will be for forty mixed scholars and twenty- eight infants. The Flintshire Education Committee met on Thursday, Mr T. W. Hughes presiding. Mr A. M. Ralli moved that the County Council be recommended to apply to the Local Government Board for sanction to bor- row the necessary amount, after accounting for any sums which might be received from the Board of Education by way of building grant. Mr J. W. Summers seconded. Mr W. C. Bell asked what portion of the cost of the new school would iall upon the parish. The ratepayers of Gwaenysgor did not want this new school, except a certain few. The Chairman said that question had been settled. Three-fourths of the cost would fall upon the parish. Colonel Howard expressed his ('pinion that this was an absolute waste of public money, and moved a resolution to that effect. Mr Peel seconded. Dr. Williams strongly defended the Com- mittee's policy. The other side wanted the whole control to be in the hands of the clergy- man. There were some horses in the county better accommodated than some of the child- dren. He had stables for his horse better than some of the schools.—-(Laughter and Hear, hear.") Mr J. Herbert Lewis, M.P., said that it had already been settled that a new school be built at Gwaenysgor, and this particular ques- tion could hardly be reopened now. In his judgment, if ever there was a necessity for a Council school--a school under public man- agement—it was in the parish of Gwaenysgor. It was not altogether a question of a quarrel between the local representative and the local clergyman. It was their duty to see that the school was sanitary and properly equipped, and in cases where there was only one school in a parish, and there was Govern- ment provision to tide over the financial difficulties, they should remove what was a constant source of friction. Let them embrace the opportunity and get as much as they could of the golden shower from the Treasury. There was a large majority of the members in favour of the recommendation. The Local Education Authority have received the following letter from the Board of Education (Welsh Department), at Whitehall Sir,-In reply to Mr Llewelyn .Tones' letter of the 9th instant, I am directed to state that the Board of Education have not lost sight of the fact that the objections ostensibly by the Managers" of the Gwaenysgor Church of England School to the pro- posed transfer were not, in fact, the objections of the managers of such school but only of certain of such managers. The Board in June last themselves elicited this fact from the correspondent of the school, who admitted that such was the case. The Board, however, deemed it only courteous to your Authority to place them in possession of the objections in question, although the Board were unable to regard them as validly raised. As regards the point mentioned in the last para graph of the Board's letter to you of the 7th instant, I am directed to state that in view of the fact that the school is only a temporary one and that plans are now before the Board for the erection of a per- manent building to take its place, the Board, in the circumstances, will assume that your Authority has satisfied itself that the premises may legally ba used, temporarily for the proposes of a Public Elementary School and will not therefore deem it necessary at this advanced stage of the matter to go into any technical questions of title.—Your obedient servant, ALFRED T. DAVIUS. 1/ '1'1>.1< m.

Mr. Herbert Lewis, M.P.'s Visit. A letter has been received by the local Secretary from Mr Hughes, Flint, the new agent to the Liberal party of Flintshire, asking for a date on which it would be con- venient for Mr. Lewis to meet his constituents as he will shortly make a tour through the county. The matter was referred to a com- mittee, and two dates were given, viz Octo- ber 2Gth or 30th. When it is remembered that the great Liberal Convention is to take place at Rhyl on the 30th, it is not likely that Mr Lewis will date his visit to Ffynnon- groew for the 30th, but will probably come on the 26th. The Rev. J. LI. Hughes, Wesleyan minister, has been appointed to take the chair for the occasion.
Harvest Thanksgiving Services have been held during the week at "Pcnjel (W.) and Gwynfa" (C.M.) chapels. Prayer meetings were conducted on the evenings of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and a sermon was delivered on Friday by the Rev. E. Mostyti Jones, Wesleyan minister, Prestatyn. One sermon is given every year, it being supplied by the said chapels in turn, and preached in the pulpit of the sister church.
Sunday Observance. Under this heading the Ffynnongroew Free Church Council are endeavouring to do away entirely, or reduce to a minimum, Sunday work at the Post Office. The Secretary has addressed the following letter to the various churches to ascertain their views and decision: At a meeting of the Free Church Council for the Ffynnongroew Ward held on Friday evening, the 27th September, it was decided to ask every church in the Ward to express its voice upon the following proposition— That we as a church, in the endeavour to further the worthy cause of Sabbath Obser- vance, do express our willingness to give up the opportunities we have at present of re- ceiving and sending letters on the Sabbath Day principally, because such a step would ensure postmen and post office officials the privilege of having the Sabbath Day through- out for themselves, and to worship thereon as we have it ourselves.—ROBERT JONES, Secre- tary.'
The Colliers' Dispute. At the time of writing a settlement has not been arrived at between the Poiut of Ayr Colliery Company and their men. The men's agent has extended the notice to cease work (which expired last Saturday) for another two weeks, to allow the company time to bring about the desired agreement.

WESLEYAN TEA PARTY AT TRELOGAN. The tea and concert held at the Wesleyan Chapel on Wednesday was a pronounced suc- cess, and the weather being good, a large number attended from Llanasa, Newmarket, etc. A good tea was prepared, ladies assisting being Mrs Parry (Bodlondeb), Mrs Evans (Crown Cottage), Mrs Edward Parry, Mrs Jones and Mrs Price (Penyffrith), the Misses Hughes (Axton), Hughes (Afongoch), Misses Evans (Four Crosses) Morgan (Avongoch). Mrs Jones (Mainstone Cottages), and Mrs Taylor (Afongoch). In the evening a lantern entertainment was given by Rev R. Hopwood, and the views depicted were explained at length by Mrs Hopwood. They consisted of scenes in Pales- tine, and other pictures connected with Bib- lical history. At intervals a Welsh hymn would be sung with great fervour to some 0 good old Welsh tune, and solos were rendered I by Messrs Wm. Parry (Newmarket), and E. Williams. (Dyserth). The whole entertainment was most interesting, and although the chapel was crowded, pnd a large number were com- pelled to stand, yet the attention given and order maintained was very marked. Mr Hopwood terminated with pictures of the world's great cities, followed by a series of amusing scenes for the children, although the elders shared largely in the fun. A vote of thanks was moved by the chairman (Mr John Price (Gwaenysgor). for Mr and Mrs Hop- wood's entertainment, which they enjoyed immensely. The vote was seconded by Mr Thos Evans (Trelogan) and carried triumph- antly. Mr Hopwood, in replying for himself and Mrs Hopwood said this was one of the best-ordered audiences he had had. On behalf of the chapel Mr Hopwood thanked the chairman for his services that evening, also the tea-makers in the afternoon, making special mention of Mr Parry (who was worthy of it). He also thanked the soloists, and included everybody who had assisted in the work that day. Mr Hopwood created great amusement by reciting some verses he had made at the recent tea party in Gwaenysgor, appropriate to their good currant bread. Al- though he admitted he had not descended from any of the Poets, yet one was inclined to believe he had ascended into somewhat of a poetic humour that night. The proposition was seconded by Mr Parry (Trelogan) and carried with great applause.
TRELOGAN. Coming Event.—Oct 23rd, Lecture by Rev. Hugh Roberts, Holywell, at the C.M. Chapel.
Llana'sa. THE PARISH COUNCIL. A special meeting of the Llanasa Parish Council was held on Monday last. Present: Councillors Wm. Thomas, Thomas Jones, R. J. Temple, Thomas Evans (Gronant), Samuel Pierce, Ed. Thomas, Thomas Evans (Axton), Thos. Roberts, Dr. Owen, Mrs Batters. Messrs Edward Evans, and Edward Jones (District Councillors) were also present. The meeting was called to consider a report of the Parochial Committee regarding the water supply for different parts of the parish. The Committee had met to consider the letter which was read at the last meeting, offering to sell the Bryn water works to the Council. They had inspected the works and source of the water. They also inspected two other sources on the other side of the plantation, on land in the occupation, of Mrs Ellis and Mr E. Evans, Berthymaen. These springs seem to be very strong, the water guaged being equal to about 19,000 gallons per day. Mr Thos. Roberts referred to the repeated attempts which have been made to supply Peu-y-ffordd with water, but up to now nothing had been done to meet the demand of this growing district. The valuation of property here had increased very much during the last nine years, and although the inhabi- tants had contributed largely to the rates, they had derived but very little in exchange. He hoped that the Council would take advantage of the oiler made by Mr Pownall. Dr. Owen wished to endorse all that had been said by Mr Roberts, and felt that some- thing should be done as soon as possible. Mr Edward Thomas hoped that the Council would take advantage of the water which had been found at Berthymaen, Trelogan, to sup- ply the districts of Berthengam and Axton. Mr Wm. Thomas I do not wish to say anything against supplying watar to both Bertheugam and Penylibrdd, but we must remember that it has already been decided to adopt a scheme prepared by the District Council to provide water for the inhabitants of the upper part of Gronaut. Although they in Gronant had suffered for many years from scarcity of water, nothing had been done to remedy it. Early last year the Medical Officer of Health brought this matter to the notice of the District Council, with the result that a committee consisting of the Chairman, and other members of the District Council, with the Medical Officer of Health, the Parish Council, and Sanitary Inspector, met at Gronant, and instructed the Sanitary Inspec- tor to prepare an estimate for carrying out the work. I consider that it is the duty of the landlords to supply their tenants with water, but as they have not done so, I hope that the District Council will take the matter up. Mr H. J. Temple We have spent so much upon trials for water in different parts of the parish, without very great success, that I cannot see that we can do anything better than ask the District Council to prepare a scheme which will supply water for the whole Parish. As it is now parts only of the parish have their water supply, while the whole of the Parish has to pay its share towards it. The following resolution was proposed by Mr Temple, seconded by Mr Owen, and carried unanimously:—"That the District Council be asked to devise a water scheme which shall suffice for the whole of the Parish. but not necessarily from the same source. ELECTION OF PARISH COUNCILLOR. Dr. Owen proposed, and Mr Thomas Jones seconded, that Mr Wm. Parry, Picton Hall, be elected to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Mr Owen Owens.
