On Saturday afternoon, January 13th, the Cohvyn Bay Fire Brigade, under the charge of their Superintendent (Mr Jones), had their monthly drill. The Brigade (although rather short- handed, owing- to some of the members being compelled to attend to other urgent business), answered a surprise-call to a fire in Station Road, and it is with gratification that we announce that within eight minutes from the call the Engine was on the ground, the horses were unshipped, and a most powerful jet of water was brought to play on the supposed burning building, and in three minutes more a second jet was playing on the building, the combined effect of which would have soon knocked out any fire which might have existed. We can only compliment the Brigade on their unusual smartness, considering that it is only twelve months since the Corps were first established, and also that it is with no little difficulty that progress is to be made in the efficient manipulation of appliances of this des- cription. We fervently trust that the Brigade (who are all volunteers) will be more patriotically supported by their townsmen and, in conclusion, we think it our bounden duty to impress upon the Public Authority the urgent necessity of providing a Fire Escape (which is of the utmost importance for the safety of the public, and which is also the first necessity of the Brigade). Amongst the members, we were pleased to see Capt. Fitzmaurice, the representative of the Fire Appliances Manufacturing Co., the makers of the Engine. The Brigade also had a Drill at Colwyn, and at the Board School. The utmost satisfaction was given, both in the behaviour of the Engine while working and travelling. THE CONGO INSTITUTE. GRATIFYING EDUCATIONAL SUCCESSES. In the list of successful candidates at the Christmas Kensington Local Examinations in connection with the Society of Science, Letters, and Art (London), it is gratifying to the friends of the Congo Institute and of its energetie founder (Rev W. Hughes, F.R.G.S.) to observe the names of all six of the African Students who entered- one (Kwesi Quainoo, the Lord Chief Justice's protege) obtaining an Honors Certificate in the First Division, and another (Joseph Burnley) obtaining Honors (ist Division) in Latin. The four others (namely, George Fraser, Alfred Dibundu, Samuel Dibundu, and Henry Cobham) also attained good places in their respective subjects. The subjects included Arithmetic, English Grammar, Geography, History, Scrip- ture, Algebra, Euclid, Music (Theory), Latin, and German. The six students, it may be added, were entirely taught by the Rev E. J. Davies, who, it will be remembered, last year gave up the Old Colwyn English Baptist Pastorate, in order to devote the whole of his time to the interests of the Congo Institute, just as, similarly and for the same reason, the Rev W. Hughes, F.R.G.S., relinquished the Colwyn Bay English Baptist Pastorate. Such successes as those now chronicled, are a further striking testimony to the ability and wisdom with which the two reverend gentlemen have carried on the tuition and administration of the Institute. ST. PAUL'S CHURCH SUNDAY SCHOOL PRIZE-DISTRIBUTION. The annual tea and entertainment in connexion with the St. Paul's Church Sunday School was held in the Public Hall, on Thursday, January 11th. Tea was on the tables at 4.30 p.m., and the very many children who were present evidently enjoyed it very much. The following ladies rendered valuable services in various ways :— Mrs Roberts, The Vicarage Mrs Meredith Hughes, Miss Biggs, Miss Annie Biggs, Miss Coates, Misses Crossley, Miss Rainford, Miss Hands, Miss Williams, Miss Johns, Miss Amy Everett, Miss Upton, and Miss Low. The evening meeting was presided over by Mr A. Grant, M.A., Colwyn Bay College. In his speech, Mr Grant made some very instructive and encouraging remarks in regard to religious education. He pointed out the necessity of systematic and definite teaching, which he believed was given to the children who were assembled on the platform. Mr Grant's words were all the more valuable because of his great experience as a teacher. It must have been very encouraging to those engaged in educational work of a religious character to hear such words from the Chairman.—The Vicar (Canon Roberts) then made some few pertinent remarks, and the programme was rendered. It consisted of the performance by the children of a sacred cantata, "The Prodigal Son." The little ones did their part excellently. The soloists were exceptionally well received. One little child, of about three years old, sang very prettily we hope that she will be carefully trained. Great credit is due to those who took such pains in teaching the children. Miss Amy Everett accompanied with taste and efficiency. The second part of the programme was of a miscellaneous character, consisting of the great feature of the evening- the giving of prizes,—and several solos, dutetts, a quartette, a drill lesson, and recitations. --the Rev Mr Howorth delivered an interesting address on educational work, emphasising the fact of giving every attention to the life and work of Our Lord Jesus Christ.—The prizes were given by Mrs Roberts, Mrs Porter, and Miss Mason, under the direction of the Vicar and the Rev Meredith Hughes, Superintendent of the School.—The following contributed songs and recitations :—Mr Samuel and Mr Thomas Williams (both of whom rendered their songs with much feeling and power); Messrs Tom Griffiths, Harold Bernard, and Tom Jones and the Misses Cartwright, Emily Jones, Edith Jones, and Mary McCann.— After the distribution of prizes, the Vicar proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the chairman, thanking him for his excllent remarks, and also to the teachers and others who had so kindly assisted, and it was seconded by the Rev J. Griffiths, Vicar of COIW3,11, in an appropriate speech. -The Chair- man briefly responded, and the Rev Meredith Hughes acknowledged on behalf ot the teachers. The Superintendent, in his speech, drew attention to the St. Paul's Young Men's Society, and warmly commended the movement to the atten- tion of all Churchpeople, beseeching their appreci- ition and encouragement. The following is a list of the prize-winners, so far as we could obtain them :—The Misses Agnes Stewart, Elizabeth Williams, F. Exell, Dunnings, Unsworth, Scholes, Crosby; and Messrs Griffiths, Bernard, White, Chaplin, Evans, Mason, Jones, and many others, whose names we do not possess. The Rev- Canon Roberts gave special prizes for attendance at the Children's Meetings. Almost every child in the School was given a gift or prize. and each one received a couple of oranges on leaving the Hall. The oranges were given bv Mi«s Biggs and Mr Davies i'Uxbridge House). Special thanks are due to Miss Lucy Crossley and Miss Coates for collecting funds for the treat and prizes. ABERGELE LOCAL BOARD. At the Abergele Local Board's January monthly meeting, Mr J. Copping said that the Colwyn Bav Local Board had passed a vote of thanks to Sir G. O. Morgan, M.P., and Mr J. H. Roberts, M.P., for their services in the House of Commons 0:1 the foreshore matter, and requesting them to continue to watch over the interests of Colwvn Bay, The only watering-place on the Denbigh- shire coast." He (Mr Copping) had been living at Abergele for many years, and Abergele and Pensarn were watering-places when Cohvyn Bav was open fields. Colwyn Bay was, therefore, not the only watering-place in Denbighshire. It seemed that through the instrumentality of the reverend Chairman of the Colvvvn Bav Locai Board and Petty Sessions it had been arranged that eight meetings of magistrates should be held every year at Colwyn Bay, and only four at Abergele, which was not fair and proper, as Abergele was the chief station for the police. It used to be "Abergele near Rhyl," but if they did not look out it would soon be "Abergele near Colwyn Bay." [Laughter]. Abergele was far more entitled to eight Courts a year than Colwyn Bay. Why, there were 54 summonses now out at Colwyn Bay with respect to unpaid rates. He could not call to mind, during the fifteen vears that he had been a member of the Board, a single instance where one individual had been summoned at Abergele for non-payment of rates. Last vear. over 200 summonses were issued at Cohvyn Bay. The local magistrates were, he averred, not doing their duty. They were elected, and thev had J.P. to their names, but they did not attend to the duties of their office. It was a very good job that the Parish Councils Bill was coming to pass, for then, perhaps, they might be able to get a few local magistrates upon the Bench who would attend to their duties.—The Vicar of Abergele endorsed the remarks of Mr. Copping. THE SECOND ANNUAL VOLUNTEER PRIZE DISTRIBUTION. The Second Annual Prize Distribution in con- nexion with the "N" (Colwyn Bay) Company, 2nd V.B.R.W.F., took place, at the Public Hal1, on Friday evening, January 12th, Mr A. O. Walker, J.P., F.L.S., presiding, and Mrs Walker handing the prizes to the successful competitor^ at the Company's shooting competition. Among others on the platform were Col. Evans Llovd (ist Cheshire and Carnarvon Artillery Volunteers j, and the officers of the "N" Company (namely, Captain F. W. Stubbs, Lieutenant Montague Venables-Williams, and Surgeon-Lieut. Duncan Fraser). The genial invitation, issued on the placards and handbills announcing the event to all interested in the weltare of the Company, to be present, drew together a very large audience, among whom was Captain Wynne Edwards, ex- Mayor of Denbigh, and Conservative candidate for Wesc Denbighshire. The room was most tastefully and appropriately decorated by Private Robert Leach. On the front of the stage (which was also more peacablv adorn- ed with exotics) were placed three stands of arms, and round the walls were the titles of the regimental honours in the shape of the names of the chief famous engagements and campaigns (on foreign soil) in which, from time to time, the regiment has done deeds of derring-do," as follows :—Egypt, Blenheim, Ramillies, Oudenarde, Malplaquet, Dettingen, Minden, Corunna, Martinique. Albuhera, Badajoz, Salamanca, Vittoria, Pyrenees, Nivelle, Orthes, Toulouse, Peninsula, Waterloo, Alma, Inkerman, Sevastopol, Lucknow, Ashantee, Burma (1885-87), a record surpassed by no regiment in the service. The proceedings, which we may at once sav were most admirably arranged and efficientfv carried out by Captain Stubbs, commenced with a song, "The Death of Nelson," spiritedly sung by Private John Conway, Color-sergeant Burwell accompanying, an office in which he was caoab v assisted during the evening by Lance-sergeant Brackstone. Following this, Captain Stubbs, who was cordially received, said, this is our second prize- giving for the shooting, and, as usual upon such occasions, I suppose you wish to hear from me some account of our work. I am very pleased to tell you that our Company is flourishing. [Applause]. It is in an improved condition, as compared with last year at this period. Then, the number of members was 104; at present, we are 114. [Applause]. At the end of the past year, the number returned as efficient was 96; at the 31st October, 1892, they were 97, and, considering that in our first year volunteering was a novelty amongst us, we have carried through our second year in a very satisfactory manner, and the falling-off in numbers is much less than might reasonably have been expected. [Hear. hear]. It has been proved that it was not the ambition jf those who joined us to simply see what it was tike, but that they had a determination to carry on their practices, and to become efficient. [Hear, hear]. I received this morning a very kind letter from our Colonel, who, 'whilst regretting that he could not be here with us to-night, wished the Officers and men of the Company "A Prosperous and Happy New Year." (Loud applause J. As regards the prizes, shooting for them took place. at Conway, during Christmas week. The dis- advantage of travelling so far, is great, but the shooting was very good indeed, and, as compared with last year, is very much to be commended. [Applause], And not only was the shooting for this competition good, but the class-firing during the past year has been very good, and was the subject of considerable commendation from our Adjutant, who inspects and superintends that work. [Hear, hear]. On this occasion, we have not received quite the same amount (in money) towards our prizes, as during the previous year, but, at the same time, we have received a verv bountiful supply of goods in kind, up to 43 items', and, therefore, I am proud to know that we have the support of the getiera, public and tradesmen in this place, which is very important, as our men are nearly all assistants (or helpers in some wav) of those who have so supported us. [Hear, hear]. One difficulty, I hope, we shall shortly overcome, and that is the want of a local range. [Hear, hear]. At present, we have to journey to Conway or Llandudno to do our shooting, and that is a verv great drawback. [Hear, hear]. I hope, how- ever, that in course of time some local landowner will come forward and give us the assistance, in this respect, that we so much need. [Applause]. When this happens, we shall take in hand our shooting with a greater amount of confidence than we do at the present time, because it is not only a lack of convenience, but it is the expense incurred by the Company, for that purpose, which is handi- capping us, and, as it is absolutely necessary, as far as the class-firing is concerned, that we should practise, we have to bear it. On this occasion we have the privilege of having the prizes dis- tributed by Mrs Walker. This is a purpose for which we must always depend upon (and enlist into our service) local patriotism and sympathy, and I am sure that we always find both Mr and Mrs Walker ever ready to come forward and give us their assistance. [Applause]. I now call upon Mr Walker to address you.
