London Notes. A male voice party has been started in connection with Castle St., which bids fair to be a strong rival to the now existing London Welsh parties. Under the leadership of Mr. J. D. Roberts it can- not fail, but be a success, needless to say it was just the thing wanting in Castle Street. Among those who have joined is Mr. Jack Richards, a promising young Tenor. We shall no doubt, ere long, hear more of the doings of this party. The Rev. Elwyn Thomas' farewell services were numerously attended at Tolmer's Square Chapel. He had endeared himself to a wide circle of friends and co-workers, and his great work in conducting the chapel and institute with such marvelous success, was duly appreciated by all the members as shown in the handsome testimonial and presents they made to him. We earnestly hope that after few years country life he will be restored to complete health. The Stamford Hill branch of Holloway Sunday School is proving a success, new members being registered every Sunday. Mr. Williams, Vartry Road, the leader of the school, is evidently a right man in the right place. He has already made some good 11 captures." Mr. Richards, also, it appears, is throwing himself heart and soul into the good work of reclaiming our fellow countrymen in the neighbourhood. Mr. Ryle Davies, at Holloway, has a class for the Study of Butler's Analogy. There was a good muster on Saturday last, including one or two who are supposed to have drifted." There was an animated discussion of course. In the death of Lord Randolph Churchill, the country has lost a promising statesman, who could count his faithful admirers on both sides of the House of Commons. Notwithstanding his faults, he was a brilliant speaker and a most ready debater. Though of strict aristocratic training, yet he was actuated by strong democratic convictions, which greatly endeared him to a large section of the working classes. In the lasi century several fairs held in the neigh- bourhood of London were known as Welsh fairs, and were much resorted to by herdsmen and others journeying from Wales with droves of cattle. A singular feature of these fairs was that the Welsh, with their inborn dramatic tendency, gave interludes, which were a great attraction.

The crowded audience that filled the Hall of this chapel last Saturday evening fully appreciated the programme that had been arranged by the com- mittee for their second Sessional Concert; and it is evident that such entertainments when properly carried out, as on the present occasion, will always "take" by our young members. The chair was occupied by Mr. R. Green of Castle St. Society, who in an eloquent and appropriate address congratulated the members on the prosperous state of their society, and of the brotherly relations that had always been maintained between the King's Cross and Castle St. Societies. He urged upon every one the duty of recognising and aiding all movements that tend to prosper and elevate the Welsh character in London. Among the vocalists of the evening were Miss Mor- fydd Williams, Miss Edith Bristow, Mr. Gwilym Richards Mr. Lodwig Evans, and Mr. Iago Lewys Recitation, Mr. W. G. Chubb; pianoforte solo, Mr. Sidney Williams. A band of instrumentalists under the leadership of Mr. G. Lorimer gave several selections during the evening, and were highly ap- plauded. Miss Frances M.
