LLANDUDNO AND DISTRICT NOTES. The erection and the opening of the Palace at Rhyl is reported to be revolutionising the character of the visitors to that town. Dancing, in itself, cannot be condemned, but when the Licensing Committee of the Flintshire County Council granted a full license, they, at the same time, created a new source of temptation to young people and others. The license may prove to be a very important factor in the future success of Rhyl, but that may be brought about by alienating the best class of visitors, and re- ducing the town to a third or fourth class health resort. We can do with a winter garden, or even a dancing and concert room, on the same lines as the Palace, at Llandudno. However, the rate- payers will do well to offer the most strenuous opposition to any application for a drink license. Once granted, it would be the first step in the downward grade. About a. fortnight ago I called attention to the peculiar Children's Mission, which is being conducted on the foreshore at Llandudno. It is stated to be non-sectarian. And it may be, for all I know. At the last meeting of the Urban Council two men asked for permission to preach on the foreshore. These two, also, assured the Council that they were non-sectarian in their mission. But. their application was refused. N ow, the point is this What moral, or even legal right, had the committee in granting the former and refusing the Latter? They are in power to administer the bye-laws of the town in an impartial and straightforward spirit, and if any preaching were needed on our foreshore, one would have imagined that it would be far more appropriate for adults rather than chil- dren. However, I protest against the action of of the urban authority in allowing the con- ductors of the Children's Mission to rope out a portion of the foreshore, thereby preventing the right of way. I admit that the Council areUle lessees, but they are tenants subject to the rights of the public. Councillor Edward Thorp stated some time ago that the object of the roping was to prevent local children from mixing with those of visitors. I have every respect for visitors and their children, but if there is any truth in such a statement, the sooner the foreshore of Llan- dudno is cleared of such missions the better it will be for the community and the goodi name of the town. » « # I offer the Rev Francis Griffith Jones, the popular and hard-working vicar of Llanrhos, my sincerest congratulation upon his successful efforts in connection with the liquidation of the building debt on the Duke of Clarence Church. It is now many years since the late Duchess of Teck laid the memorial stones, but by means of bazaars, and the generosity of Lady Augusta. Mostyn, Lord Mostyn, Mr and Mrs John Walker, Mr and Mrs Broome, and' other friends, a. sufficient amount of money has been raised to clear the existing debt and to complete the boundary walls and laying out the grounds. #"» » Great compllaints are being heard about the over-sharging indulged in by cabmen. I do not for a moment believe that the practice is a general one, but that it does exist is beyond all doubt. Visitors will do themselves, as well as the public at large, much good if they will' report Ii every such case to the clerk of the Urban Coun- cil, and if a conviction is obtained!, the urban authority should dleprive the person so con- victed of his license. To overcharge innocent people is only a. way of obtaining money by false pretences. Besides, it irritates the visitors, and the practice affects the reputation of the town. and its government. At the Llandudno Police Court on Monday, At the Llandudno Police Court on Monday, two newsboys were fined for a breach of the county bye-laws, namely, of shouting loudly in the streets to the annoyance of the public. That there are strong complaints in that respect is admitted, more particularly after ten o'clock at night, and it is but right and just that those lads who will persist in disregarding the warn- ing of the police should be made an example of. But, while meting out justice to such little urchins, the police officers would do well if they were to pay equal attention to certain street hawkers who are guilty of the same practice. If I they were to do this, I would! not have ai word to say. But, as matters now stand, there is room for protest. I

'I Mr Prichard Jones having proposed the loyal toast, which was? heartily honoured, the genial host thanked those who had) assembled for assisting him in celebrating the laying of the foundation stone of an institute which, he hoped, would: be of immense benefit to the district, and the presence that day of the representative men of Anglesey showed that they supported and approved of what he was doing. They took great interest in all things that tended to elevate the people and to enable them to breathe a purer social atmosphere. They had already done great things to improve the condition of the labouring classes (hear, hear). They had shortened their hours of labour, and had given ¡. them greater time for other things—to do good J or evil. Their chapels and churches and Sun- day Schools had done and were doing great work for the benefit of -Ehe people; and socially and morally this island1 of theirs stood on a par with J any county within the kingdom (applause). Still he believed there was ample room for improve- ment—for philanthropists to help free libraries and give facilities to make better citizens and better men of their fellows (hear, hear). This in- stitution was calculated to do that for the village of Newborough. He believed in the power of the Press as a wonderful instrument for refining and extending the scope of the mind (hear, hear). Here, in this institution, they would have thousands of books well1 written in English and Welsh brought as it were to the very door of every man who lived in the par:a 'hear, hear). Referring to the details of the scheme Mr Pritchardi Jones said that the main building would consist of five large rooms, one of which would be a library, containing thousands of volumes of the best literature, newspapers, daily and weekly, and1 weekly and monthly periodicals, selected by people knowing the requirements of the neighbourhood and the district. There I would also be an assembly room, which could be used for social gatherings of a. non-political and non-sectarian character. This room could be divided into two, in which continuation classes I could be held for the purpose of further educating those anxious to improve themselves (hear, hear). Should boys desire to become officers and cap- tains of ships they would be taught navigation (hear, hear). There would also be six cottages; these were intended to be homes for old people who had gone beyond work, who had lived honestly and worked hard all their lives, and had not been able to put by sufficient to ke*>p them. Here was a home for eight of these (applause). He estimated the cost of building and .furnishing and the purchase of books at £6000. and, in order to keep the fabric in repair, to replenish the library with books, purchase newspapers and periodicals, pay the librarian and his wife £1 a week, and 5s per week to each of the old people (7s 6d to old couples), he estimated that he would have to invest £7000, making a total j of £ 13,000. When the whole work was finished, I and when the people lived in the cottages, it I was his intention to invite them again (applause). At that time he would invest the building and the' endowment in trustees, and present it to I the parish of Newborough as a free gift, subject to the control of himself and his brothers while they lived! (loud applause). He proposed success to the institution. The toast was honoured with music. I Mr Ellis Jones Griffith, M.P., then addressed! the gathering, a.Tid •said! that there were very few occ-aisi'onisi upon which lie had been proudfer to be an Anglesey man than this. Mr Prichard) Jones wlas aiM excellent man in every respect but one, (and .his on.1- regret was that Mr Priehardi Jones had not been horn three miles in another direction* (laughter). An accident of birth had' dteprived a more deserving village of the greaA I gift which 'had1 fallen to the lot of Newborough (laughter). They had' all been impressed, by the splendid scheme which Mr Prichard! Jones was dJereLopiw Of the munificence of the gift he would say nothing, but they were indebted) to himalS people living in this pairt of the county for hios splendid liberality and the splendid ex- I ample he .had' given to every man who was able to emulate him (hear, hear). The ÍJ.2,a of the oottage hiomesi wiais an adiniirable one, for the old men and the old women Would' not be. o-ne whit more indebted to him than would be those who usekll the assembly rooms and the lihrairies. The gift did noft pauperise anyone (applause). And) nobody oould lbok down upon those who lived in these homes. That was why the Institute in these homes. That was why the Institute I would be unique in! many respects. Another splendid thing) albout the gift was that it was made in the life time of Mr Prichard' Jones. He did not WMt until1 'he dLed), and until he could have .no further use if>ar his money. Ha whs still young, with many years of usefulness in store for haani; and ha had deposited; this £13,000 amd wouild be able to enjoy the construction) of the building land see to its control! during his life time aind that of his two brothers. In the prime of their dlay and tHe vigour of their majUibiood) thiey weortei endeavouring to do isomie good) to the village in; which, they were born. This gift de- velopedi a. point he had been making; in his speeches, that a man served his country best who served1 his village best.. If everybody swept before his own door, the whole village woadd be cleatti and! the sarnie was true of patriotism. Just as a man owed a duty to his family, to his pairi'sh, and to the county he lived in, and the county to which he belonged, he setrvedt his empire best, by iserwing his village well, by doing good in his own circle, by de- veloping the life and improving the condition of the people lamong whom he lived! (applause). Mr Priehardi Jones had proved himself a pious ancestor in his own, life time- • Miany pious ancestors made their gifts when they departed from) the worfd: but heTe was a splendid ex- ample to those who could emulate him. He (Mr EtLliis Jones Griffith) felt certain that for many years to come thev wiould) mat forgieb such a splendid! example of citizenship amd patriotism, audi from the bottom of_th!eir hearts they wished Mir Piuchard Jones many happy years of pros- jwniiby (agrpfeuae). I Col. Hunter, J.P., in the course of a neat speech, proposed) the health of their host. He was a. noble son of "Mon, miam Cyimru," the island wherfe the bards lived1—the mother of Wales, the county of peace and love and tran- quality. Mr Prichard Jones had always looked at his inaftive county wuthi love and affection. They all reciprocated every word said by their hon. member, amid .the kindness and hospitality of Mr Priohajrd Jones amd! íbis brothers were Well knowan alll over the county. They hoped' they would know very much more of him, andJ felt confident that if he came down occasionally] to rusticate, th.e< would be very pleased to see him taking part in county business (hear, hear). It was not every man who was gifted with suc- cess, ood the reason of his great success had, not doubt, been his great ability '(hear, hear). The village of Newborough hadi once been am ancient and historic town, amdt ha knew whiere the sceptres of office were now deposited by the last mayors of the borough. He should liifce to sea these cunious things deposited' in Mr Prichard Jones's museum and library (applause). The weights and) meaSsures of the old borough were still wiithin it. They greatly regretted that. he resided so much on one side of the county. It was, no doubt, a great advantage in one way to be far away from the railway; and he had no doubt that the result of Mr Prichard Jones's action would be of laistiing benefit to thait part of the county. He had great pleasure in proposing the health of their genial host (applause). Mr Harry Cic-gg, J.P., Plas Llanfair, said) that amongst a. gathering of Welshmen he felt somewhat out of place, but an example had been set to Englishmen they wouM do well to follow. He quite agreed with what the member for the county had said regarding the leaving of money for the public benefit, very often) a great deal of such money wlas spent by lawyers who bedigened eaich other iih thlei courts, but here the munificence of the donor would DOlt be thrown away, and1 hie would feefl he had done great ser- vice not only to hiis owm county but to the world in genera! by the Buocessful carrying out of his greaib enterprise (hfaair, hear). It had been saad) that Newborough was out of the world, but tif that was so thley had' not much to fear from the end of the world (laughter). Mr Prichard Jones said he was glad to see them there, and they could say in reply that they were very glad) indefed that they bad) come, and if by taking part lID these proceedlinlgsi they could assist him fa carrying- out his grand scheme they would) do so. M!r C. F. Priestley foll'owed, and said that every Anglesey lad would) praise Mr Prichard Jontes for his Christian act. Mr C. J. Abbs, of Dewsbury, one of the oldest frfendls of the host, salid that when quite a- young IIlIa!nI Mr Prichard Jones joined' a debating society, am thlat town and did good' service to the community in that town 25 years ago or more. It was gratifying to 'h1i:s old' friends to watch his succeslsfulcareer in the metropolis and to find) that hie proved himself so useful a member of the community (applause). Mr W. Thomas, J.P., Liverpool, said1 that] work of this kind appealed to hilm as a Welsh- man. He was proud of Newborough though ho hadi never been there before. He knew a great imamy Newbontxugh mem—some of them had been in his servi!cie>—and! whenever he desired to have a trustworthy offioer on any of Ms vessels ha always sought a man; from Newborough (applause). He was very pleassed that Mr Prichard Jonas1 had thought, proper to spendl so much moniey in his native town. Every spirit created its kmd andi he tsmceTely hoped this noble example wouM be emiutalted by many wealthy Welshmen (applause). The Welshmen in England, wa'tchedi with jealous eye the career of the young men. of the Principality who came to the big towns of England, and rejoiced in their success. There might be no room for them in Wafes n.t the start, but on their re- turn there wa;s plenty of work for them to do (hear, hear). The great lesson that Welshmen should learn was how to be united, and for that reason he was. gl'ad1 to learn that this Institution was to be non-sectarain and' non-politioal (hear, hear). The Welsh nation was too weak nu- merically ito be divided!, but if they joined hands and were mora aggressive, they could work wonders, and could show thle world that after all thiey were a great pooplø (hear, hear). Englishmen especially would' more readily re- cognise them; if they only were more aggressive and! united. It was 'all very well to belong to a certain church or chapel or a certain clique, but it was far better to belong to the Princi- pality and to do their duty to the nation (loud applause). Mr Owen Owen, London, added his testimony to tha.t of the other speakers, and spoke of the many friends Mr Prichard Jones had in London. There was a. great trade that looked with an immense amount of interest upon the celebration of the event in Anglesey that day—one of the most important of the industries of the country —the drapery trade. It was seldom they found men doing what was being done that day, and! the carrying out of this great idea must mean a large amount of sacrifice of time to Mr Prichard Jones. He was an honour to his country and neighbours, and especially to the trade with which he was connected. He (Mr Owen) was glad of an opportunity of coming to this lovely place. Now Mr Pricha.rd Jones had a greater stake in the couniiy than he ever had before, and he sincerely hoped he would be able to spend more time in the island and take that enjoy- ment he so richly deserved (applause). The toast having been drunk, Mr Prichard Jones suitably responded, and said he felt that they were only guardians of that which wa.s given to them, and that they were supposed to make the best use of their abilities for the benefit of their fellows. He preferred to see his money invested during his life time in some good work. Others liked to pass their wealth on to executors, but he did not think that policy was a wise one, for nothing gave a man greater satisfaction than to give if he was able to give. It was better to give than to receive. He thought he had more money than he could spend in his lifetime, and he chose to use it in this way. He hoped he would live to see the com- pletion of the work (hear, hear). This concluded the proceedings at the luncheon. The party was afterwards photo- graphed' on the lawn by Mr J. Kinsley, and entertained to music on the harp by Ap Eos Mon and Telynores Arfon, Mr Richard Prichard, Carnarvon, accompanying on the pianoforte.
THE PUBLIC CEREMONY. The host and his guests afterwards drove to .1 the village of Newborough, and were met at the approaches by the Llangefni Brass Band and the villagers, who fonned a procession through the streets to the site of the new institute. Here thousands of* people from all partfe of the county and from Carnarvonshire had congregated to witness the ceremony of laying the founda- tion stone. Mr G. J. Roberts, J.P., Trefarthen, presided over the proceedings. The buildings are situated on the road from Newborough to Gaerwen, facing the Menai Straits. They will' be Elizabethian in style, and will cover an area of 26,000 square yards. The lower part of the main building from the ground floor 10 the first will be built of grey Anglesey granite, and dressed with Ruabon stone. The upper part is treated in half timber, with the exception of the clock tower, which will be of Anglesey granite and stone dressings to the roof, with a copper terminal. The clock is to be a very handsome one with chimes. The cot- tages will be treated to harmonise with the public hall. The accommodation of the ground floor of the hall where the library will be situated is 45 by 30 feet, and on the other side of the hall is a large fmoke room 28.6 by 24 feet. Behind this again there is a large coffee room 24 feet by 18, a kitchen, cloak rooms, lavatories. Upstairs there will be a large assembly hall, as large as the library, the reading-room above the coffee room, while in the front part there are to be tea rooms, cloak rooms, and' caretaker's rooms, living rooms, kitchen, scullery, lavatories, and bedrooms. The cottages comprise a living-room 14 by 12, a large kitchen 13 by 10, and a bed- room 12 by 10, all the inside W!.H.b. being of pitch pine, while the latest sanitary and ventilating ar- rangements will' be introduced. The architect is Mr Rowland Lloyd Jones, of Carnarvon, and the whole work, when com- pleted', is estimated to cost about £22,000. Mr Prichard Jones at first intends to work the in- stitute for a few years himself, so as to put it on a sound basis, and then he intends to endow the whole institute and hand it over to the public for ever. Mr G. J. Roberts, in opening the proceedings, said that since he remembered Newborough. when quite a young man, the inhabitants had been noted for their honesty and their per- severance. The people were not very rich neither were they very poor. If there had. been any great poverty in the island they would have expected to and! it in Newborough, for the land around: was the poorest in a. county noted for its agriculture. They were exposed to the sea and the storms of winter, but in the face of adverse* circumstances they had managed to hold tiieir own and to turn out some of the best men the nation possessed (hear, hear). God helped those that helped themselves, and that was being proved in the history of this locality. Mr Prichard Jones had gone away from those rural parts to some of the big English towns, but in his success he had not forgotten his native village. Many Welshmen had left the Principal- ity and after being successful in strange lands they never returned, and, indeed, many ignored. and disowned the country that gave them birth, and forgot the language that was so dear to- every true Welshman. Mr Prichard Jones had not done so, but had returned to erect a mem- orial not of iron and marble for himself but a lasting one, which would be beneficial to genera- tions yet unborn (applause). Mr Ellis Jones Griffith, M.P., followed with & stirring Welsh speech, in kU.e course of whtchL he referred to the past history of the ancient borough. He said that when they compared .natjotns they were apt to believe that nta nation equalled the Welsh, and if there was one county in Wales greater than any other, that county was Anglesey, and possibly the dearest spot in the whole of the island county was that particular spot which nestled quietly on the banks 01 the Menai Straits and under the shadow of the great Snowdonian Range (ap- plause). Newborough was onoe the capital ol Anglesey, but now it was said they lived in the far end of the world. To-day, however, New- borough was the great centre which set an ex- ample to the whole Principality, and it was no stranger to the lads of Newborough who had given them this princely gift (applause). He was not one of those who left his native land, and after succeeding and gaining a fortune forgot his country and the district that gave him birtii. He did not return to them having lost the language he was taught in his youth-, but spoke Welsh with as rich an Anglesey bro-ue as the best of them (laughter and applause). He looked quite young, too, and would undoubtedly live long to enjoy the fruits of his own gene- rosity and munificence (applause). There were many people in Anglesey who worked hard every day of their lives, who were industrious and thrifty, but yet failed to put bv sufficient to maintain them in their old age. They had earned riches for others, but had nothing to look forward to at the end of their days but the workhouse. Those were the people who would feel thankful to Mr Prichard Jones for his gene- rosity. They would not be pauperised, amd would be maintained in comfort when they had become too old to work (hear, hear). Every- body knew how highly respected were the three brothers in the county, and how they benefited the community. There was a time in the his- tory of every man when he could do nothing with his riches but leave them; but here they had an example of a gentleman who was yet young doing good with his money during his own lifetime (applause). They all wished him success and every happiness in the future. He would never feel sorry for the work he had initiated that day. and would always find a warm. welcome and the highest respect in the (hearts of the inhabitants of his native country! (applausa). Mr Thomas Thomas, the chairman of the Newborough Parish Council, then handed to Mr Prichard Jones a silver trowel and mallet, with which to lay the foundation stone of the institute, and in the course of a. happy speech, referred to the good works of the donor's father., Mr Prichard Jones had undoubtedly studied the life of the great philanthropists, but he had also studied carefully the life of that great lover of mankind who came to the world 1900 years ago (hear, hear). He was trying to follow in. His footsteps (applause). On the mallet was inscribed:—"Presented to J. PrichaNF Jones, Esq., Regent-street, London^ by the parishioners of Newborough, on the occasion of laying the foundation stone of the- Public Library, etc., August 26th, 1902." Mr Prichard! Jones acknowledged the gift in a Welsh speech, in the course of which he re- ferred to thte unjaimmou'S) feeling in the neigh- bourhood of aporovail of the work he was doing which waisi evidenced! by this great interest taken by the whole parishioners in the proceedings. If there wa.s anything nteeded' to prove this it? couM be found in the reaidiimes's shown to sub- scribe towards a. silver mallet and trowel with which tOO Laiy the foundation stone. He could not sspeak of it, but would allow actions to speak louder than words. Thliis wa.s am important day for the parish, for it was the day on which theyf laid the fairadajtnoni stone of a. seat .of learning iist ai part of the country ithafc. bad been too Wig neglected' (hear, heaa*). Mr Prichard Jones tbeg went on to describe ini deta.il what the Institute was meant for, and a eongregaitioiial hymn bavimg be*n yendieredl by th? audience t.He stona- was well lUidj truly laid amidst dBa-fenang chjee-ps. This was followed by a. prayer by the Rev J^ W3-'iuamis, Llangefni, and lanotlner interesting; speech by Mr W. Thomas, Liverpool. The Rev R. Hughes read >a bardic address off praise to Mr Prtichard Jones, composed: by Mr Owen WdinLamsiotn, of Newborough, a skmh of Bairdd Du Mom," after which' a vote of tha/nks was heairtilly accorded Mr Priohaird Jones on): the motion of the Rev Mr Jenkins, the rector,. seconded by Mr Hugh Hughes, the contractor, and the meeting was. brought to a termination!' by the rendbriwg in Welsh of "God f<ave the- Kmg." A procession was then reformed and, marched through the village, headed by the band and the school children carryimo- Union) Jaoks In the evening, Mr Eliis Jones GpS M.P., presided over a well-attended concert,, at which, there were penillixm singling by Ap ÐO!5 Mom, his daughter (Telynoites Arfon) accempamviing 0I]j the harp; Mr Richard Prichard. Oarnlarvon; Josephine Williams, Llangefni; the Llan- gefni Brass Band, aind looal surtiisbe's participated'.
MR J. PRICHARD JONES. Mr J. Prichard Jones is the youngest son of' the late Mr Richard Jones, of Tv'nvcoed, New- borough. and is abouifc 5? years' of age. He was educated! at Dwytran School, ajid earlv in life- left home to be apprenticed as a draper to the late Mr Owen Owen, of Bridge-street, Carnar- yon. Oni the completion of his apprenticeship, he left for Pwuheli, and wias for some time in' the employ of Mr John Ellis, amd afterwards at Bangor an 'the establishment of Mr J. E. Ro- berts and his brother. From Bangor he re- moved to Wrexham, and then to London, but he I '"e"' the metropolis for Dewsburv, and here hlEt" took great interest in) a debating society. He a v however, for Leodts adit! tliean for London. About thirty years ago he entered' the employ, of Messrs IJinckins tand Jones, Hanover House, Regent-street. Even at that time there wa.s a Welshman named Mr Jones comnfected with the firm, which was then, however, not 'fc'O well known as it is to-dia.y. Mr Priichard' Jontes was given a salary of JB100 a<s a buyer, and' so well: did he discharge his duties that ait the end of six yeans he was offered! a partnership Under his able management the firm became remarkably prosperous and widely known in; the mosi fii.nhronii.b.e circles, and) was, two years ago, con- verted niita a limited liability company, thø of lasfc Jear amounting to £74,000. Mr IVichiird Jones is still tlie managing direc- tor of the company, and he is also one of the founders of the Drapers' Chamber of Trade, a Very] flourishing: .society whiicli accomplishes much good work. Twenty-four years aso he married' Miss Coates, of Much Wenley, in Somerset, but there wasi no iseme of the mar- riage, and MrN Pri'diard Jones œied: much re- gretted in OctobeT of last year.
SUICIDE IN RUTHIN PRISON. Committed to six months imprisonment for felony by the Dolgelley magistrates, Frydryck- Ertmorn, a native of Germany." entered Ruthin Prison on the 16th June to carry out his sentence On Friday morning, however, he committed; suicide by hanging himself, which occurrence necessitated an inquiry before the coroner for West Denbighshire (Dr R. J. Hughes) at the prison on Saturday morning. The Governor of the prison (Mr E. Parry Jones) gave evidence of the entry of prisoner. All the English he knew was "Yes" and "No." Assistant Warder Wil- liam Morris', under whose charge prisoner was, stated that on Friday morning, whilst the- prisoners were doing their exercise, ErtmorBP became excited and disobeyed orders, whereupon he was placed! in his cell, where he was employed in making mail bags. A little later, about 7.30' a.m., when witness was taking the breakfast around, he discovered prisoner hanging by piece of rope (such as was used as a stiffener for the mouth of the bag) from the ventilator of the cell. He immediately cut him down, but life was extinct The jury returned a verdict of" "Suicide whilst of unsound mind."
