PROSPECTUS. This Company has been established for the pur-" pose of opening and conducting in the parish of Festiniog Refreshment Houses, Rooms, &c., which shall ofer all the attractions of the Public-house without intoxicating drinks. In several towns the experiment has been tried and has met with great success. In Liverpool a similar company has been established several years, and a dividend of ten per cent for the year has been declared. In this case the nett profit amounted to sixteen per cent on the capital, after writing off fifteen per cent for depreciation of furniture, fixtures, &c. When it i|kremembered that during this year the Company opened ten new places of business, and that, in consequence, there must have been a proportion of the capital unre- munerative during part of the year, it is evident that the business is a profitable one. While it is admitted that there are material- points of difference between Festiniog and Liver- pool, it is confidently believed that a few houses opened in the* parish in reasonable proportion to the population will be financially a success. The Houses and Rooms will be open to all comers, from the early morning-when experience proves the advantage to the working man of a cup of tea or coffee on his way to work—till bed time.' They will be supplied with newspapers, and with such means of recreation and amusement as the Directors find advisable. While it is hoped and expected that the houses will not only prove a boon to the working men and their families, but help to counteract the baneful attractions of strong drink, the Directors are satis- fied that it is essential the undertaking should be made remunerative in a commercial point of view. The Capital is divided into 5000 Shares of zCl each, of which nearly three-fourths have already been allotted. The sum of 5s. per Share is pay- able on application, and 5s on allotment. The balance will be called as required, but no call shall exceed 5s per share, and calls are not to be made at less intervals than one month. Copies of the Memorandum and Articles of Association, together with Prospectuses and Forms of Application for Shares, can be had at the Office of the Company.
