OORWEN. A BRASS BAND FOR CORWEN.-Some time ago a committee was formed to consider, a proposal to raise funds to purchase instruments with a view to forming a brass band for the town. A secretary was appointed to solicit subscriptions, who ac cordidgly drew out a list for subscribers. The Hon. C. H. Wynn, Rug, on being satisfied that the instruments would be the property of the town and that the band would not be used for an-' political purpose, such as to herald a Liberal or Conservative candidate into a town, and that a competent conductor would be appointed, gener- ously subscribed £ 5, with a promise of an annual subscription towards the instructor. Mr E. O. V. Lloyd subscribed L3, and Mr S. Holland, M.P., promised annual subscriptions. The secretary has been instructed to renew his appeal to the pub- lic, and he hopes to be able in a few weeks to have collected a sufficient sum to purchase the instruments.
