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 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.

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
