Stan- ley, the distinguished African explorer, who is a patron of the Congo Institute, Colwyn Bay, is a Parliamentary candidate at the fast-approaching general Election, which, judging from Mr Bal- four's statement last Monday, will most probably commence by Parliament's dissolution on the Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday of the week after next. Mr H. M. Stanley has placed himself at the disposal of Lord Wolmer, and will have assigned to him some borough or county which he will contest under the Dissentient Liberal flag. A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.—On Tuesday evening, whilst Mr John Jones, a coachman employed at the Imperial Hotel, Colwyn Bay, awaited orders at the Hotel Vaults door, the bay horse he was riding (for exercise) shied, and, rearing, fell back- wards, on top of his rider, on to the asphalted parapet. Mr Jones, who was immediately ex- tricated, was at once taken to the Central Hotel, where he was kindly attended until the doctor's arrival. Dr M. Venables-Williams found that, although no bones were broken, the sufferer had sustained considerable shock. At the instance of his employer, Mr Jones was removed in a cab to the Imperial Hotel, where we understand that he is well cared for and is satisfactorily improving. SERVICES AT ST PAUL'S CHURCH.

The marriage of Miss Edwards, daughter of Mr and Mrs Edwards, of Radford Villa, Colwyn Bay, and Mr Richard Mullock, of The Bramptons, Aintree, Liverpool, was solemnised at St Trillo's Parochial Church, Llandrillo-yn-Rhos, on Tuesday morning, June 14th, the Rev. W. Venables- Williams, M.A. Oxon., Vicarf of Llandrillo, offi- ciating. The bride, whom her father gave away, wore a dress of silver-grey brochia silk, trim- med with white silk, white chip hat, and white ostrich feathers. She also wore agold brooch, and bracelet set with diamonds. The travel- ling dress was of a cornflower-blue camelette cloth, and the costume included a grey hat, trimmed with shaded ribbon to match dress, and a mixture of cornflowers and corn. The whole trousseau was supplied by Mr Hugh Davies, Britannia House, Colwyn Bay. The bridesmaids were dressed in grey cashmere, with hats to match. The best man was Mr J. Mills, Waterloo, Liverpool, the groomsmen being Mr Frank Edwards (brother of the bride), and Mr Alfred Mullock (brother of the bridegroom). The bridesmaids were Miss Lilly--Clark, Colwyn Bay Miss Arnowd, Eaton Hall, Chester; and Miss Young, Mostyn. Each bridesmaid wore a gold brooch set with pearls, the gift of the bridegroom. The wedding-party started about 9 15 a.m. for Llandrillo Church, in carriages provided by Mr Edwin Jones, Central Stables, and after the ceremony returned to Radford Villa, where the wedding breakfast was served, the tables being elaborately decorated, the wedding-cake, which was of an unusually large size being placed in the centre. The Rev J. Griffiths took the head of the table and his neat speech and timely advice was most acceptable. The wedding-party consisted of Mr and Mrs Edwards, Radford Villa Mrs and Miss Arnowd, Eaton Hall, Chester; Mrs and Miss Julia Young, Mostyn; Miss Lily Clarke, Liverpool House; Miss Fletcher, Glen Gordon Mr and Mrs Walter Edwards, Heatherview; Miss Clara Allen, Station Road; Mrs Jones, Cumberland Stores; Miss Emily Maud Edwards, Miss Eva Maud Edwards, Miss Violet Edwards, Rev J.

After the happy couple's departure, the wedding-party repaired again to Radford Villa, where all went merrily until dusk. An At Home" was given, when the presents, which were costly, were seen, and although the list is so far incomplete, yet we may say that among them we noticed the following:—Silver knives and forks in case, Mr and Mrs Irwins, 3, Belgrave Road, Birkdale Park, Southport; Mrs and Miss Clark, Colwyn Bay, tea-set hand-painted mirror photo-stand, Mr John Hutchinson, Colwyn Bay; afternoon tea-tray, Mr A.

COLWYN BAY & COLWYN LOCAL BOARD. At the Colwyn Bay and Colwyn Local Boards' Monthly Meeting, held on Tuesday, June 14th, the chairman, (Rev. W. Venables-Williams) pre- sided, and there were also present Messrs. John Roberts, (Vice-Chairman) Thomas Parry, Wm. Jones, Owen Williams, George Bevan, W. H. Roberts, Charles Forst, A. O. Walker, J. Porter, James Wood, T. E. Parry, (clerk,) and W. Jones, (surveyor). THE FORESHORE INCLOSURES. Arising out of the previous meeting's minutes which were read and confirmed was a question as to alleged inclosures of the foreshore. Mr. Moore, Crown Receiver for Wales, had written stating that he did not think the Hotel Company had had any assent from the Office of Woods to rail off the Shore, and asking that should anything be done in that way he should be notified thereof. CONCERNING THE SUBWAY'S OPENING. The Chairman read a letter from Mr. Dawson, the Railway Company's Engineer, concerning the Subway's completion and stating that the Com- pany's contractor had informed him that the Sub- way, so far as he was concerned, would be ready on Tuesday evening, June 14th. The Chairman said that the next thing was, what steps should be taken to inaugurate the opening of the Subway. The suggestion at the Board's previous meeting, if he remembered rightly, was that Lord Stal- bridge should be asked to come over and open it. Mr W. H. Roberts said that that was simply a suggestion he had thrown out when the question was raised. The Chairman: The question is, have there been any strained relations between this Board and the Company ? I am aware that some people think that, because of the attitude I have assumed towards the Railway Company in past years, our relations were strained. But I don't think they were, but, if they are, it is only because I have done my duty in the matter of the assessment of the Company's line in this district. My action in that matter has resulted in the pay- ment by the Company of £ 5000 increased rates on their property. Was it my duty to call the atten- tion of the Guardians to it? That meant to the ratepayers at 4s in the £ the payment by the Railway Company of a sum of Liooo a year, which previously had been paid by the ratepayers, consequently we are relieved by that amount of £1000 a year (hear, hear). And I must tell you that we have arranged that increase on the sug- gestion-or at least it has been consented to and accepted by Mr Howard on behalf of the Railway Company, and I say that is a very substantial in- crease to our revenue (here, here). I am simply offering this as an explanation, to show that one must do his duty and must not carry favour from the Railway Company, or anyone else, in order to get favours for Colwyn Bay (hear, hear). Mr Porter said that he had been there before, when the Chairman had done something of the same kind, and as one of the largest ratepayers in the town, he begged to offer his warmest thanks for his services in the matter. Some years ago when the Chairman attempted a similar thing some people laughed at him and said "Oh, this parson of Llandrillo He fight the Railway Company ? But the result showed that the Chairman was equal to the task he had undertaken, and he came out with flying colours, and L50 a mile was added to the rateable value. Mr Wood asked whether they should ask anyone to take part in the cere- mony. The Chairman said that he thought that a resolution of some kind should be passed. (To the Surveyor): When will the Subway be ready, Mr. Jones ? The Surveyor About the middle of July, Sir! Mr. Walker: Is it not too large a question to go into at once ? Mr. Frost proposed dealing with the matter that day week. The Chairman asked the Board to excuse the Clerk from attending next week's meeting, Mr Parry's medical adviser having ordered him to Buxton to recruit after his recent severe illness. On Mr John Robert's suggestion the Board ordered that Mr T. E. Parry's clerk attend next week's in Mr Parry's stead. THE MANTRAP CROSSING. On the ancient footpaths question, mentioned in the minutes, the Chairman said that a very serious accident so late as Monday of the previous week had occurred at one of the ancient footpaths of Llandrillo Parish, and he thought that the time had come when they should revive the correspondence of 1889, in course of which the Railway Company declined to erect a bridge requested by the Local Board. A gentleman had told him that on Sunday, June 12th, when the Irish Mail was passing there were on the ladder stile seven people waiting to cross. It was a most dangerous crossing, owing to the curve, and the crossing did not go straight but obliquely. Mr Wood Can we have that read? The Chair- man then read a report of the accident and inquest from The Weekly News including the Coroner's remarks. The Coroner had been down to see the crossing, and had condemned it as a most dangerous one. A deputation had had an interview with the Company on the subject in 1889. Mr Thomas Parry said that at that interview the Company wanted the Board to close the footpath at the crossing. Mr Wood proposed, Mr W. H. Roberts seconded, and the Board resolved that a copy of the verdict, accompanied by a resolution of the Board that they should have a foot-bridge constructed forthwith, and be sent to the. Railway Company, meanwhile a man be employed to watch the crossing and to protect foot passengers. THE EIRIAS BRIDGE. It was reported that the Board had agreed to contribute L250 towards the Eirias Bridge if made wide enough for vehicular traffic and for carrying the sewers. THE RATE COLLECTOR. The Chairman said that he would like to call attention to what took place at the Board's previous meeting in connection about the rate collecting. If the report in the paper was correct, it appeared to him that Mr Bevan had made a clear and distinct charge against the Collector, without the Collector being called into the room and given an opportunity of giving a distinct explanation of the charge made against him. The Chairman here read the report as appearing

Sparks." BY BEN SMITH. MR EDITOR,— The glorious weather during Whitsuntide has brought, to the progressive town of Colwyn Bay, a great number of visitors; many of whom—being newcomers,—thought of only a few days sojourn, but, enchanted by the EMPRESS OF WATERING-PLACES, have extended their stay here much longer than anticipated. This shows that Colwyn Bay is not the "gates of Paradise," as one noted watering- place was called last week, but the very "para- dise to which the said place is a gate." It is very gratifying that the Subway is about to be completed in a very short time and it has been suggested to me, by an old "broom," that it would be very advisable to try and get one of the Royalties that will attend the Rhyl Eisteddfod in September, to formally open the Subway! and henceforth call it a "ROYAL ROAD." Though I think such a course quite unnecessary, it might be a good advertisement for the town as a pleasure resort. However, we have all noticed the great number of visiters that daily take this yet uncompleted route to the shore, and that to a great extent proves the necessity of some such scheme. I trust that the already-commenced PROMENADE will also be at once completed, so that when August and September appear, the high-class visitors will find, to their benefit, a suitable and comfortable place on the sea-shore. We must congratulate THE TOWN BAND on their appearance this season in our midst their performance, on the sea-shore especially, is quite a treat and, without the least exaggeration, they deserve the highest record for the excellence of their sweet music. Of course, Mr Editor, THE NIGGERS are always acceptable, with their joke-cracking, and they seemed to have created almost a new life in the place altogether. The Town Band and the Niggers are well worth the support of our fellow-townspeople. The GENERAL ELECTION is at our doors once more, most the pity,—if I was you, Mr Editor, I would have advised the Govern- ment either to pronounce the present Parliament's doom last March, or to hold the country's grand assize not earlier than November. An election in the summer season is, in my opinion, very detri- mental. But they will have their own way, like many others, and boldly face the Parliamentary sudden death during this month. The Boroughs of Carnarvonshire have already blown the bugle, TO ARMS TO ARMS! Mr Lloyd George (the sitting member) last week commenced his campaign at Conway (where he interviewed his committee) whilst Sir John Puleston (the Unionist candidate) commenced last week at Nevin. This battle, I think, will be the Water- loo" of Wales, and, in some parts of the Boroughs, canvassers have, even now, finished their districts, this applying to both parties. There is one thing that we must insist upon your space to record, namely, MR LLOYD-GEORGE'S LOYALTY. It is rumoured that a very prominent Conservative at Conway has been the means of spreading false- hoods concerning Mr Lloyd George's loyalty; but the present member states that, at the Lord Mayor of London's Welsh banquet, he, Mr George did stand to do honor to the loyal toast, and, albeit he may be, perchance, Mr Editor, of some- what Republican opinion, yet it was unfortunate that he was wrongly accused of refusing to honor the loyal toast, when we have his own word that he did stand. Notwithstanding everything, WALES IS LOYAL, and too law-abiding in many cases, and the people would do well to foster the opinion that they are well able-and ought to-rule themselves; and does not the principle of the County Council teach us this ?-and, with the Local Government Act admitting the possibility of rightful administrative self-government by the people, why, in the name of the democracy, is the country so dubious as to the formulating of the great measure for ruling the four countries on the self-same principle ?-- Well, well, have I gone into politics ?—I am regretful, but I have naturally drifted, with this General Election on the brain. But let the Conway people remind themselves of the fact that the whole Empire-nay, the whole civilised world- are anxiously watching which way the majority in the Boroughs will vote, and that fact calls upon them to seriously consider their position and to vote according to their conscience, for the welfare of civilised mankind, for the welfare of the British Empire, and for the welfare of the Carnarvon Boroughs.

in The Weekly News of that date, and proceeding, said that he quite agreed with what was stated, as an abstract principle, regarding the necessity of having a Rate Collector entirely independent of business, but the conclusion arrived at in this case did not seem to him to be the right one, and he thought that a Committee ought to be ap- pointed to investigate into the truth of Mr. Bevan's statement. They wanted to know who were the persons referred to, what were the amounts of rates, &c., it would be for the Board to decide what to do, if Mr Bevan's charge could be sub- stantiated, but a Committee ought to be appointed, and he was prepared to propose that such a Committee should be appointed, and should suggest that the Chairmen of the various Com- mittees, save and except Mr Bevan, constitute that Committee. Mr Bevan was the Chairman of the Finance Committee and he made the charges to be investigated, so that it would not be proper for that gentleman to be a member of the In- vestigating Committee. He would also add to the Committee the name of Mr Thomas Parry. Mr Thomas Parry I don't know anything about it The Chairman: Exactly, but I want you to know all about it. Mr Wood: Quite right. The Chairman said that the matter ought to be in- vestigated, in fairness to the Collector, to whom every opportunity ought to be given to refute the serious charges brought against him. Mr Wood asked whether such an investigation would be in a view of doing away with the resolution passed at the Board's previous meeting. The Board then thought that postponing the matter twelve months would give an apportunity of investigating the charges. Mr W. H. Roberts I don't think he made them as charges, and Mr. Bevan's reply shows that he did not. Mr Bevan Excuse me. The Chairman Excuse me; if this report is correct Mr Bevan said. Mr Frost Yes, if the report is correct. The Chairman then read extracts from the Weekly News report of what Mr Bevan had said. Mr W. H. Roberts said that when Mr Bevan was speaking, he (Mr Roberts) simply asked the question whether he made these as a charge, and he (Mr. Roberts) also stated that he thought that a Committee should go into the matter, and the Collector ought to be dis- charged if the charges were proved, he also hought that they ought to have had the Collector in the room to give his version of the affair and if were possible he should like to have him called in forthwith.—Mr Bevan said that the Board would remember that at the previous meeting on the question being raised whether the Collector should go out of the room, while the subject was being discussed, he (Mr Bevan) had said that he did not mind whether or not he remained in the room.—The Chairman asked whether, instead of again going into the matter, it would not be better to appoint a Committee.— Mr John Roberts pointed out that Mr Bevan fell in in the twelve-months notice arrangement.—Mr Walker said that he at the previous meeting had seconded Mr Bevan's resolution, but he was not influenced in the slightest degree by the state- ments about the removal of furniture from houses before the payment of rates, and he should regret if too much importance were attached to those statements, which were probably mere local gossip. He thought that the Collector ought to be called into the room to give his version of the affair.—The Chairman Here he is.—Mr Walker (concluding) said, that he was glad that the year's notice was given.— The .Chairman then (addressing the Collector) You have heard what has been stated, and you clearly understand that charges are made against you, of allowing persons who had hired furniture from you, to leave their houses.—Mr Bevan No, I never stated that. My second reply to Mr Roberts is the correct one. My statement was that the Collector had removed furniture out of houses where persons had hired furniture from him, before he collected the rates, and those cases appear in our list of irrecoverable arrears. —The Chairman (to Mr Bevan) Can you give us the names ?--(To the Collector): Can you give any explanation ?—The Collector I don't know what cases he refers to. —Mr Bevan One case is that of Morton, Confectioner. He is down here as not having paid his rates, and Mr Hughes (the Col- lector) removed his furniture.—The Chairman What is the amount of the rates in this case ?-- Mr Bevan (looking over the list): I will tell you in a minute.—The Chairman (to the Collector): How much did Morton owe ?—The Collector £ hj.—The Chairman How much has he paid ? —The Collector £ 2.—The Chairman That leaves £$. Is it true that there was furniture of yours, and that you removed that furniture from the house, leaving £ 5 unpaid in rates ?- The Collector: The house was empty after August.—The Chairman It is true then, that you did take the furniture away without the rates being paid ?-The Collector The house was empty till the 25th of March.—Mr John Roberts He ran away before the summer was over.—The Chairman I think that it will be necessary to have a Committee of investigation to go fully into the matter.—Mr W. H. Roberts I will second that motion.—Mr Walker I would rather not be on the Committee, that's all. You can't take evidence on oath.- The Chairman Well, no, but we can inquire tully into the matter.—The motion was carried. (TO BE CONCLUDED IN OUR NEXT ISSUE). LLANDRILLO AND EIRIAS U. D. SCHOOL BOARD. At the Llandrillo and Eirias School Board's monthly meeting, held at the Board Room, Col- wyn Bay, on Monday. June nth, Mr Moses Wil- liams (Chairman) presided, and there was also present, Messrs C. Frost, John Roberts, Robert Evans, W. Earp, Mr E. Hughes (Clerk), and Mr Matthews (Attendance-officer). The last meeting's minutes were read and con- firmed. THE TEA AND PRESENTATION MEETINGS. It was proposed by the Chairman, seconded by Mr Earp, and unanimously passed, that the tea- meeting for all the Schools be held. on Friday, July 29th, and that the presentation-meeting be held in the evening, the Clerk to engage the Public Hall, Colwyn Bay, for holding the presentation- meeting. THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS. It was decided that the Summer Holidays be from July 29th to September 5th. ATTENDANCE OFFICER'S REPORT. The Attendance Officer read his report of his visits to the various Elementary Schools in the district, and it was passed that the Clerk send notices to the employers and parents of the worst absentees from the Llwydgoed Board School, Colwyn National School, and Colwyn Bay Board School. TO SUMMON OR NOT TO SUMMON ? The Attendance Officer reported the case of Jonathan Edwards, of the Colwyn National School, who was employed by his father, Joseph Edwards, and who therefore neglected to attend school. Mr Frost proposed that a summons be taken out against the father, as he had had the usual notice from the Board, and had simply treated it with contempt. Mr John Roberts I object to taking this action against children attending the National School. The Chairman On what grounds, Mr Roberts? Mr Roberts If the Managers of the National School requested us to summon them I should vote for doing so. The Chairman hereupon remarked, that the Board's duty was to compel the children to attend some School, and-in default thereof-the Board was to summons them. Mr Frost: Quite so. Mr Evans There must be something wrong in the School's management, or else, how are we so often troubled with the bad attendance at the National School more than at the Board School ? Does the Schoolmaster of the National School sometimes send to the children's homes to see where they are ? We know the Board's School- masters do. The Attendance Officer: The Schoolmaster, I think, does the same thing as the Board School- master because I've seen a Monitor sent to the children's homes. The Chairman One thing is certain, gentle- men, we ought to have a better understanding
TOWN COUNCIL. TOWN COUNCIL. On Thursday afternoon, June 9th, an adjourned meeting of the Conway Town Council, was held at the Conway Police Station, the Deputy-Mayor (Alderman Griffith Jones) presiding. The Council is constituted as follows, those present being indicated by an asterisk:— THE MAYOR. [Councillor Albert Wood.] ALDERMEN (4). *Edward Jones ( ). *Griffith Jones ( ). *Hugh Jones. *John Williams ( ). COUNCILLORS (12). *Peter J. Webster. *J. W. Tosdevine. ( ) William Hughes. ( ). C. J.

Acting Town Clerk. *Mr J. W. Post. Borough Surveyor, te. *Mr T. B. Farrington, C.E. ( ). Sanitary Inspector: *Mr. D. M. Roberts ( ). THE FINANCE COMMITTEE'S MINUEES. From the Finance Committee's minutes, it ap- peared that that Committee had added other names to the four the Council had invited to meet the Council, so that by viva-voce examination, it might be determined which candidate was the most suitable to be appointed to take charge of the Conway Corporation's Gas Works at Conway Morfa. It was reported that seven applicants were in attendance, the original four included. Councillor Roberts strongly protested against the Finance Committee's action. The minutes were confirmed. THE GAS MANAGER APPOINTED. Councillor Roberts proposed the election of Mr Lewis Jones, already employed as gas-stoker at the Corporation's Gas Works. The motion was seconded. The seven applicants were then called in, and were interrogated. Alderman Edward Jones, in the discussion which followed, said that he had every respect for the local man, who, however had failed to satis- factorily answer four questions. The other applicants were more eligible. On a division, Councillor Roberts's motion was negatived by seven votes to four. The Council then narrowed down the list of applicants (now six in number) to two.—William Evans, Hawarden and Edward Williams, Bas- ingstoke. Ultimately, by six votes to five, the Council appointed Edward Williams, Basingstoke. It was reported that Owen Owen, Skibberreen, proved to be older than the maximum age the Council laid down. DENTAL NOTICE.—Mr. Richard Pedler, Dental Surgeon, of Waterloo House, Llandudno, attends every Friday afternoon at Mrs. Marks's, Rhos Mill House, Conway, where he may be consulted on all cases of Surgical and Mechanical Dentistry.

I between the Managers of the Colwyn National School and our Board. You know, the Church and the Church Schools belong to the richer and the poorer classes, whilst the Nonconformists' belongs to the middle class. But we must do our duty and proceed against— Mr John Roberts But why should we do the dirty work of the Managers ? We are only as an Attendance Committee,—we do not get such particular reports from the School as we get from other Schools, and, of course, the managers would be glad if the Board would take these cases in hand, and deal with them in such a manner as to effect a better attendance at their private School. Mr Frost It isn't a private School, it is a public one. Mr Roberts It isn't governed by the public, but by Managers, and I say it is entirely private and the Managers ought to simplify our work as a Board, by either pointing out the worst cases that ought to be proceeded against, and request- ing us to do so, or giving us a fuller report of the School. Mr Frost I am one of the Managers, and I have proposed to summon one of the absentees. Mr Roberts Yes, but you have proposed as a member of the School Board, not as a National School Manager. It is not right, gentlemen, that this Board be used as a handle for- Well, I shall stop here and at the next meeting, I shall give a notice of motion. The Chairman said, that before the meeting the only motion, which Mr Earp had seconded, was to issue a summons against Joseph Edwards. Mr Robert Evans proposed, as an amendment, that a notice be sent him again as an employer. The amendment not finding a seconder, the original motion was passed. On Mr Frost's motion, seconded by Mr Earp, the Board ordered a formal notice to be sent to Mr Range, Llysfaen, calling for the dismissal, from Mr Range's service, of Arthur Jones, who was under the legal age to leave School. A DISTRESS WARRANT. The Board resolved that a three days notice be sent to John Roberts, Colwyn, requiring him to pay the costs of the proceedings instituted against him, and that, in the event of non-compliance, a distress-warrant should forthwith issue. THE VISITORS' REPORT. The Visitors to the Colwyn Bay Board School, reported that smoke and damp existed in the School, and advised the Board to supply a stove, and this, together with other repairs, the Board unanimously ordered.
