Brasted, THE NATIONAL SCHOOLS CONCERT.—On Friday evening, August 24th, the annual concert in aid of the parochial National Schools, was held in the Assembly Rooms, which were filled with a large and appreciative audience. In the unavoidable absence of Mr Frost (owing to illness), the duties of chairman were kindly undertaken (at a very short notice) by Mr Woodall, Tanycoed, who in a pleasing manner successfully guided the proceed- ings to a very satisfactory termination. The pro- gramme was considerably extended owing to the frequent encores given to the various items. The pianoforte solos "Tarentella" (J. T. Linekar, Colwyn Bay), andl" Cabaletta" (Lack) were most brilliantly rendered by Miss Landon, and "The song that reached my heart" was sweetly sung by Miss Mattie Lloyd. The Welsh songs "Can Tywysog" and "Llwybr y Wyddfa," were very well rendered by Messrs J. Conway and Edward Davies and were encored, as was also the Welsh duett "Call to arms," which was most spiritedly sung by Messrs Edward Davies and Elias Evans. The Rev D. Howell Griffith, of Abergele, gave a capital rendering of "Arise and follow Me" (Blumenthal) and "The Bedouin love song" (Pinsuti), which was encored. Miss Amy Ellis Jones displayed a very considerable amount of skill in her rendering of the violin solos, being ably accompanied on the pianoforte by her sister, Miss Marie Ellis Jones. Miss Williams's most sweet rendering of Blumenthal's "Sunshine and rain," elicited an enthusiastic encore, and the old favourite "Minstrel Boy" was given. Seldom has an audience listened to more charming and highly fiinshed singing than that of Miss Edith M. Roberts, of Chester, who was most deservedly encored each time, and readily responded, her rendering of songs seeming perfect. A new feature in this year's programme was a Spanish song (with guitar accompaniment) by Miss Nellie Pierce, which was very much appreciated. Dr M. Venables-Williams's humorous songs, were as usual received with acclamation, and a most determined and enthusiastic demand for encores, was made on both occasions. Altogether, the evening was a most enjoyable one, and fully sus- tained the high character that these concerts have always borne. Thanks are due to Misses Landon, Ellis Jones and Nellie Lloyd for their able accompaniment on the most excellent piano- forte kindly lent by Dr M. Venables-Williams. The room was most tastefully decorated, by Miss Lloyd and Miss Jennie Jones, with choice flowers and plants kindly lent for the occasion by Mr and Mrs Frost, Minydon. Before the singing of the English National anthem, MrWilks, Gorphwysfa, in a most eloquent speech proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the artistes and the chairman, and this was briefly seconded by the Vicar THE COLWYN BRASS BAND'S CONCERT.—At the Assembly Rooms, on Thursday evening, August 31st, a concert was held by the Brass Band, the proceeds going towards purchasing new instru- ments. The Musical Gitanas (who are now on a tour through Wales), were advertised to take part, but at the last moment sent word (from Fes- tiniog) of their inability to attend. The Colwyn Band, a fortnight previous, went to Penmaen- mawr to assist in a concert in the Gitana s aid, tree of charge; and, on that understanding, the Gitanas were to assist at this concert, free. Not- withstanding this disappointment, a capital concert was enjoyed, local talent ably filling the gaps on the programme, and, in the absence of Mr W. F. Rees, Mr G. F. Woodall (Tan y coed) presided. After a short address by the chairman, the Band opened with a grand march, "The war march of the Priest." The remainder of the programme was rendered as follows:—song, "Death of Nelson," J. Conway; song, "Lost little Dogie," Mr J. Henson (of Rhyl); song, Miss Williams (London); song, "Yes, let me like a Soldier fall," Mr Llewelyn Jones; song, Y tair mordaith," Mr E. C. Evans song, Ora Pro Nobis," Miss Mattie Lloyd musical enter- tainment (encored), Mr Henson; duett, "Ar Ian afonydd Babel," Messrs LI. Jones and E. C. Evans; whistling solo, "March of the Men of Harlech," Mr Brookes Jones; song, Miss Wil- iams (London); laughable discourse, Mr Henson; musical selection, The Band; song, Miss Williams; song, "Alice where art thou," Mr E. Prestatyn Davies; song, "Arm, arm, ye Brave," Mr Hugh Williams; song, "Dfio bach," Miss Mattie Lloyd; ''The Charge of the Light Brigade," Mr Henson; song, "Revenge," Mr H. Williams; song, Miss Mattie Lloyd song, Mr Henson duett, 0 gartref yr Eryr," Messrs J. Conway and E. Davies; finale, "God save the Queen."

MARRIAGE OF MISS JONES (BERTHLWYD) AND MR O. MORGAN OWEN.-On Wednesday morning, September 5th, at the Tabernacle Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, Tanybwlch, near Conway, the marriage of Miss Hatty Jones, eldest daughter of Mr Thomas Jones, of Berthlwyd, Conway, and of Five Elms, Grassendale Liverpool, to Mr O. Morgan Owen, Secretary to the Alliance Assur- ance Company, Liverpool, was solemnised, by the Rev William Jones, minister of David-street Chapel, Liverpool, assisted by the Rev E. O. Davies, B.Sc. (Lond.), Garston, and in the pres- ence of the Rev R. Llugwy Owen, M.A., Ph. D., registrar. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in her travelling dress ol powder-blue cloth, with vest of cream brocade. She wore a guipure hat with white plumes, and carried a bouquet of white exotics. The two bridesmaids-the Misses Bertha and Gwen Jones (sisters of the bride),—each wore a gold bangle (the gift of the bridegroom). The best man was Mr John Owen (brother of the bridegroom). After the ceremony, the guests proceeded to the breakfast, which was served in a marquee at Berthlwyd, after which Mr and Mrs Owen drove to Conway station, their destination being London, en route for the continent, where the honeymoon will be spent The wedding-cake was supplied by Messrs Bolland, of Chester. The presents, which included a handsome silver tea-service from the Liverpool employees of the bride's father, were many and costly. In the afternoon, the bride's father entertained to tea the Sunday Schools of Tabernacle and Gyffin C.M. Chapels. The country-side around the bride's home was well decorated with bunting, in token of the respect felt for the family at Berthlwyd. THE POLICE INSPECTION AT CONWAY.- On Tuesday, September 4th, Captain the Hon. G. T. Legge, Her Majesty's Inspector of Police, made his annual inspection of the men of the Conway Division. He inspected the Llandudno section at Llandudno, and then proceeded to Conway, where he inspected the remainder of the division in the old Castle. The men were drilled by P.C. J. Rowlands (56), and, in answer to the Inspector, the men said that they had no complaints to make. The Inspector afterwards visited the Police Station, and, after having inspected the Divisional Books, expressed himself as being satisfied with everything. There were a large number of visitors at the Castle, watching the proceedings. CONWAY TOWN COUNCIL. At the Conway Town Council's September meet- ing called for 2.30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 5th, at the Guild Hall, Conway, the Mayor (Councillor Dr R. Arthur-Prichard, J.P., C.C.) presided.

The motion having been carried, the former Committee was re-appointed, for the purpose of choosing the men to form the brigade, Councillor Edward Roberts's name being added to the Committee. STATISTICS. It was reported that on August 31st, there was X3691 4s lOd balance due to the Treasurer that the Rate-Collector had received X2017 12s 2d, and that the arrears were X2417 13s ltd., and that the Finance 2 Committee recommended the payment of accounts amounting to over £540.-Thi.,¡ recommendation was was sanctioned. THE SANITARY INSPECTOR'S ILLNESS. Councillor Edward Roberts moved that the Sanitary Inspector appoint a deputy (subject to the Council's approval) to act for him during his illness. Councillor Drover protested against the principle of allowing the Inspector to appoint a deputy The Borough Surveyor offered to see after the men until the next meeting, should the Council pass a resolution empowering him to act in the place of the Inspector, who he hoped would by then have recovered. On Councillor Drover's motion, the Borough Surveyor's offer was accepted, he being given full power over the Corporation workmen. The Mayor said that he thought that it was the Council's duty to pass a vote of sympathy with Councillor Wallace on the death of his mother. He believed that nobody fully knew the affection that existed between Councillor Wallace and his mother. He moved that the Town Clerk communicate to Councillor Wallace the sympathy of the Corporation. The motion, which Alderman William Hughes seconded, was passed unanimously. THREATS OF PROSECUTIONS. It was decided that the Town Clerk cause notices to be put up threatening prosecution against children running after and shouting at carriages and against persons leaving young mussels on the foreshore. MUNICIPAL LEASES. It having been found that the Corporation could grant leases for no greater term than 75 years, it was reported that Mr David Roberts, with whom a 75 years lease (renewable) had been in course of negotiation, had been commicated with, as to whether he was prepared to accept a 75 years non- renewable lease, with the proviso that the Corpora- tion would make it a renewable lease should they be successful in obtaining power to grant leases for longer terms than 75 years. Mr Hoberts had signified his willingness, and it was now decided that the 75 years lease should be granted, and that (should powers be obtained) extensions should be granted as to all long-term and renewable leases heretofore granted in error. SPECIAL SESSIONS. CONWAY, SEPTEMBER 5TH.-Before the Mayor of Conway and Morris Jones, Esq., William Williams, travelling hawker, was charged with being drunk and with begging, in Trinity Square, Llandudno, on September 4th, and was fined 5s. and costs in each case, but, in default of payment, went to prison for 14 days.—Inspector Walters, of Llandudno, proved the case. CONWAY AND LLANDUDNO PETTY SESSIONS. CONWAY, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3RD.-Before Henry Kneeshaw, Esq (chairman); The Rev W. Venables-Williams; The Mayor of Conway (Councillor Dr R. Arthur-Prichard, C.C.); Dr K. H. Bold Williams; County-Alderman Elias Jones; County-Councillor C. H. Darbishire; Morris Jones, Esq; J. Allanson Picton, Esq, and Dr Dalton. Mr J. Allanson Picton said that through a technicality he was unable to take part in licensing matters. BREWSTER SESSIONS. Superintendent H. D. Williams reported that the number of licensed houses in the division was 104, viz, 81 licensed victuallers (a decrease of one on 1893), eight beerhouses, (twelve grocers' licenses (an increase of one), and three houses licensed for the sale of wine (an increase of one). The total population of the Conway Division according to the last census was 18,814, and the proportion of licensed houses already in existence was one to every 211 of the inhabitants. In the borough of Conway, the proportion was one to 137; in the Llandudno urban district, one to 163; in the Penmaenmawr urban district, one to 301. Seven licensed persons were proceeded against during the year-six convicted and one dismissed, a decrease of three in the convictions; 163 per- sons were proceeded against for drunkenness, an increase of 19-152 were convicted and 11 dismis- sed. Of the number proceeded against 132 were residents and 31 non-residents, the number con- victed being one to every 123 of the inhabitants. Two persons were proceeded against, and con- victed, for Sunday drunkenness—a decrease of 5. Both were residents. One person was convicted for falsely representing himself to be a traveller —an increase of one. Seven were proceeded against, and convicted, for being drunk on licens- ed premises, a decrease of 13. Of these persons six were residents and one non-resident. No per- sons were proceeded against for being found on licensed premises during prohibited hours, a de- creaseof6. One was convicted for being on licensed premises on Sunday, and giving a wrong name to constable. He was anon-resident, an increase of I. There were 17 tied houses in the division-five at Conway, eight in the urban district of Llandudno, one at Tywyn, one at Llandudno Junction, and two at Penmaenmawr. There were two applica- tions for new grocers' licenses, and one a full license at the Gogarth Abbey Hotel. Llandudno. Notice of objection to the renewal of their licenses were served on five licensees-for that they have during the last twelve months been convicted for an offence against the tenor of their licenses. The offences were-three for having adulterated their spirits, one for permitting drunkenness, and one for serving a drunken person. On the whole, the licensed houses had during the year been fairly well conducted.—Replying to the Chairman, Superintendent H. D. Williams stated that none of the licenses were endorsed. There were no complaints against back doors.—Mr Chamberlain, who appeared for the licensee of the King's Head, Llandudno, who had been fined for selling liquor which had been adulterated with water, contented that the offence did not come under the licensing law, but was under the Food and Drugs Act.—In answer to Dr Bold Williams, who commented upon the increase in the number of convictions for drunkenness and the decrease in the number^of proceedings taken against licensed houses for permitting drunkenness, Superintendent Williams said there was a diffi- culty in getting a prima facie case against a licensed house. A man might leave the house with a bottle of whisky in his pocket and be found drunk on the street. He did not like to encour- age the policemen to visit the houses, as they were laid open to temptation. Tramps came to Conway drunk and applied for relief-tickets.— The Rev Venables-Williams: And you give them an order on a lodging-house ?-Superintendent Williams No, we give them a cheap lodging in the cells upstairs, and bring them before the magistrates next day.—The Chairman said that the Bench were, on the whole, satisfied with the tenor of the report, but they hoped that in future steps would be taken to trace the houses where the persons had obtained their drink.—Mr D. Owen (Bangor) said that he was instructed to oppose all the applications for new licenses, but none of those tor renewals.—It was decided that the licenses objected to by the police should be adjourned until the 24th instant, these being the licenses of the following houses:— Railway Tavern, Conway; King's Arms, Snow- don Hotel, and King's Head, Llandudno; Albion Inn, Conway; and Ann Jane Griffith, Roewen. -Mr Chamberlain applied for a full license for Mrs Alice Jones, the Gogarth Abbey Hotel, Llan- dudno. He pointed out, in support of the application, that new roads were being opened up in the district, that extensive buildings were contemplated, and that the nearest licensed house was fully three-quarters of a mile distant. In the next few years a new suburb of Llandudno would have sprung up in that district, and there would be a large population, and a great number of visitors during the season. The applicant, who is also the owner, said that accommodation was provided for 36 visitors. The house stood in its own grounds and might be greatly extended if necessary. There was a shipwreck close to last winter, and she had to give a bottle of brandy for the lifeboat men, who were benumbed with cold, there being no licensed house near.—Mr D. Owen contended that thejfact of the house, which was a temperance one, being full, showed that the visitors suffered no inconvenience.—The Ap- plicant: If we had a license we might make an addition to the house. Many visitors complain that it is a long way to go to town to order their wines and spirits.—Mr Owen: Are any of them here to-day ? No, but I can give you their addresses. Don't you think that some of these people who have taken up the plots of land for building have done so because there is no public house near ? No, let each one mind his own business. The majority of visitors like to be near an hotel so as to have somewhere to go to?—No other witnesses were called in support of the application, against which evidence was given by Mr G. Kaye, the owner and occupier of a villa within 20 yards of the hotel. He was not a teetotaller, but he considered that a licensed house in that part of the town was quite unneces- sary.-In answer to Mr Chamberlain, the witness said that scores of excursionists, who arrived at Llandudno slightly inebriated at an early hour of the morning, drove round the Great Orme's Head and temptation would be afforded them to take another glass if the Gogarth Abbey Hotel had a license.—Mr Chamberlain: But we do'nt want this hotel for the use of casual customers, but for respectable visitors.—The Witness: But you could not refuse to serve these people.—The application was refused. -Mr Chamberlain applied on behalf of S. Dunphy for an off license for premises built at Deganwy, where a large and increasing population had sprung up, and the necessities of the public thereby increased. This application, which was also opposed by Mr D. Owen, was granted.—The only private objection of renewal was that of the license of the Vaults, Mostyn street, Llandudno, held by Captain Lester, Prince of Wales Hotel. Mr Chamberlain formally made the application, which was opposed by Mr McMaster, a ratepayer, on the grounds that the premises were not wanted for the requirements of the district; that it was merely a tippling-house, there being only one public room, that the character of the structural arrangements were not in compliance with the plans of altera- tions recently submitted to the Justices; and that the grant of this license would create a plurality of licenses granted to one licensee.—Superintend- ent Williams, in answer to Mr Chamberlain, said that the place had been licensed for a great number of years, and was well conducted. The alterations had been carried out in accordance with attic deposited plans.—Captain Lester said that the vaults were used for wholesale purpose. The retail department was, on an average, closed nightly at least one hour before the legal time, Since last winter he had expended over 1,400 in improving the premises, which were licensed long before 1873.—The renewal was granted. HAWKING WITHOUT A LICENSE. David Edwards, Colwyn pleaded guilty to hawking without a license.—P.C. Edwards (56) said that he asked the defendant for a license, and that he said he had it at home. It was arranged that the defendant should show his license to the Colwyn Constable, who was to write to Penmaenmawr. In default of hearing from Colwyn, the witness reported the case.—Mr Esther, Inland Revenue Supervisor, Rhyl, said that the defendant had since taken out a license. What was objected to, was the defendant having told the police an untruth.—The Bench fined defendant 10s. and costs (7s 6d). STONE-THROWING. Five boys were charged with throwing stones on the Gyffin road, and were reprimanded and ordered to pay costs. A DONKEY AND CART UNATTENDED. Thomas Vaughan was charged with leaving his donkey and cart unattended in Uppergate Street, Conway, on August 8th, and was fined is and costs, 8s 6d in all.-P.C. Griffith (52) proved the case.
Dr. Barnardo's Homes. Mr James B. Wookey, the eminent Evangelist, Deputation Secretary of Dr Barnardo's Homes, will lecture in the Boys' Schoolroom, Conway, on Wednesday, September 12th, and in the Public Hall, Colwyn Bay, on Thursday. September 13th, the subject being the children of the criminal and unfortunate poor class. The little Musical Boys from the London Homes will give selections on various musical instru- ments. The work of Dr Barnardo deserves to be widely known in Wales, and we trust our readers will avail themselves of the opportunityjto know some- thing of its details from Mr Wookey.

C-otuepondenee* tIn no case are we responsible for the opinions expressed in this column.] To the Editor. THE LOCAL BOARD CALLED TO TASK.. SIR,-As a constant visitor for several years at Colwyn Bay, and having just returned thence, I desire, through your columns to call the attention of the local authorities to acts on the beach that call for their attention. Only last week, on going down to the vans, about 8 o'clock, I was astounded to see some 20 to 30 men, extending in a line from the bathing-vans to the Dingle, dressing and un- dressing on the beach, having bathed or being about to bathe from the shore. Many ladies who were walkiug about were compelled to turn back, and restrict their walk. On inquiry, I was informed that it was a common occurrence, and that frequently the numbers extended to 40 or 50. The Local Authority should see to this. It is unjust to allow it, in two respects. First, to the visitors who support the town, and whose comfort is interfered with and secondly, to the van- proprietors, who pay a license for leave to ply on the shore. The Board cannot, and ought not to compel persons to use the vans, but they can, at least, prevent indecency on the beach, especially as I am told the scenes I have described go on as late as 9 in the morning. Another thing I should like to mention while I am writing you, that is, the want of enterprise, on the part of the Board, in providing for visitors. The want of a decent walking place on the beach, in the stead of the series of dust heaps," as one writer has called them. The want of a decent Band, apd the bad condition of the lower part of Marine Road. One would not like Colwyn Bay to become a second Llandudno or Rhyl, with their Piers and general garishness, but one would like some little comfort and some sitting accom- modation on the roads and beach, and on the latter some simple shelter from the elements. The approach to the sea at Colwyn Bay, enough because of the Railway, but the W Board makes no effort to redeem these drawbaC Cannot the members see that the attraction Board makes no effort to redeem thesedrawb,a ¡¡or The approach to the sea at Colwyn Bay, enough because of the Railway, but the W Board makes no effort to redeem these drawbaC Cannot the members see that the attraction visitors, must of necessity aid their town, a|llJ every house erected there for the accommoda of these visitors, increases the town's income' Yours etc., fPi Manchester, 5 Sept., 1894.

special meetings were eighteen,—Abergele en Colwyn Bay eight. The number of cases entered, including summonses for arrears of rates, &c., was 275,-Abergele 69, and Colwyn Bay, 206. Mr Miller was under a total misapprehension as to his idea of the convenience to the magistrates. As far as that went, the inconvenience was equal. Mr T. G. Osborn, in supporting the Chairman's negative; said that the only convenience they had to consider was that of the public.-Dr Bold Williams moved an amendment that six sessions be held at Abergele as usual, but that there should be an increase in the number of sessions for Colwyn Bay.—Mr Miller expressed his willingness to accept the doctor's suggestion providing the chairman would do the same.—Mr J. Wallis Davies, on behalf of the litigants and the Bar, approved of the suggestion of Dr Bold Williams, which he thought would be hailed with satisfaction. —It was resolved unanimously that 16 meetings should be held in the year, ten at Colwyn Bay, and six at Abergele the four extra meetings to be held during the months of May, June, July, and August, the Abergele meetings to be held on the first Saturday in each of these months, and the Colwyn Bay meeings on the second Saturdays. It was also resolved that police summonses from Colwyn Bay should be heard at Colwyn Bay, and the Abergele police cases at Abergele, prosecut- ors other than the police being allowed to take out summonses for either place, as might be most convenient to themselves. A PROBABLE RISE IN THE PRICE OF MILK. Robert Grffiths, Colwyn Bay, in the employ of Mr Hutchings, was charged with leaving his horse unattended in Colwyn Bay.—Sergeant R. H. Jones proved the case.—Mr Nunn spoke at some length for the defence, concluding by saying that if they were to insist on a second man accompanying every milk-cart, they would have to pay more than 3td per quart for their milk.- The defendant was fined 5s and costs, the Chairman saying that leaving carts unattended was a very dangerous practice and ought to be put an end to.—Mr Nunn said that, now that he had done with the case, he quite concurred with the opinion of the Bench. A BOARD ON THE PAVEMENT. Miss Ellen Stephens, Colwyn Bay, was charged with obstructing the pavement in front of Moon's Hotel, Colwyn Bay, by putting an advertisement- board on the pavement.—Mr Amphlett prose- cuted on behalf of the Colwyn Bay and Colwyn Local Board, and Mr William Jones (Surveyor) proved the case, which he stated to be a contra- vention of section 28 of the Towns Police Clauses Act. -A fine of 10s and costs was imposed. A GAME-LICENSE GRANTED. Mr Alun Lloyd applied, on behalf of Miss Emma Juby, Colwyn Bay, for a license to sell game.—The license was granted. CRUELTY TO A DONKEY. At the instance of Inspector Wm Pocock (R.S. P.C.A.), Mr Wm J. Murray, of 35, Haverstock Hill, London, N.W., and Miss Wilson, Rhos Abbey, were charged with cruelty to a donkey, by respectively working it and causing it to be worked (at drawing a bath-chair) while girth- galled. Mr Murray did not appear, although he had told one of the Colwyn Bay police that he would have counsel down to defend him, and Miss Wilson conducted her own defence.—Evid- ence as to the donkey being worked (on August 3rd), whilst girth-galled was given by Mr William Jones (Local Board Surveyor) and P.C. Andrew Roberts (36) and P.S. R. H. Jones, the last- named (together with Inspector Pocock) speaking also as to examining the donkey the following day, when the Inspector found it in good con- dition except for the girth-gall on the near side and a two or three days old sore on each shoulder Miss Wilson, in the course of a lengthy state- ment, said that on August 1st the donkey was all right except for a healed-over sore. On the fol- lowing day she sent it to the Flagstaff, and on its return she found (to her dismay) that there was a girth-gall. She treated the wound, and the next day sent the donkey to the saddler's, to have the harness altered while the saddler could see where the chafing was. The girth was loos- ened so as not to touch the wound. Answering the Bench, Miss Wilson said that she had Mr Murray's word for it that he had taken the donkey straight to the saddler's. Mrs Murray was in the bath-chair because she was not a very good walker. The Bench convicted both defendants, Mr Murray being mulcted in £ 1 and ns6d costs, and Miss Wilson in 5s and costs. OBSTRUCTING THOROUGHFARES. Thus. Thomas, Wm. Owen, and Edward Jones, were charged with obstructing thoroughfares in Colwyn Bay, by leaving carts thereon an unreas- onable time. Mr Alun Lloyd pleaded guilty, but said that perhaps he might have got them off on a technic- ality, namely, that each lent another an addition- al horse to get up the hill, in mistaken kindness to their horses. P.S. R. H. Jones, who proved the cases, said that the carts (laden with stones) were standing unhorsed, at the side of a roadway over 6 yards wide. Each defendant was fined is and costs (5s). WISHING THE REV D. MORGAN-DAVIES GOD-SPEED AT GRIFFITHSTOWN. The Pontypool Free Press, of August 31st, contains an interesting report of the valedictory meeting (on August 28th) at Griffithstown to the Rev D. Morgan-Davies, B.A., after a pastorate of eight years, in order to become Tutor at the Congo Institute, Colwyn Bay, where he entered upon his tutorial office on Tuesday morning, September 4th. It appears that at the valedictory meeting, which followed a meeting of the Ministers' Fraternal Association (where kindly references were made to efficient service Mr Davies had at all times rendered as a member), the chairman (Rev J. D. Rees, Pontypridd) said that the more he knew Mr Davies, the more he liked him; he was a scholar, and Providence had opened up a sphere in which he could utilize his knowledge to advantage, at an institution which was going to do a great work for Africa, and the speaker was of opinion that the evangelisation of Africa would best be served by the institution in question. Eloquent testimony was borne to the pastor's past fidelity, and his fitness for his future work," by members of his flock and by brother- ministers, and Mr Davies was presented (on behalf of his Church and friends) with a purse containing upwards of £ ro, as a token of esteem and regard. The recipient, in replying, begged to tender them his grateful thanks for that renewed expression'of their love towards him. He should deeply feel the wrench of parting, for that church was his first love. He was truly conscious that he was guided by the invisible eye of our Heavenly Father. Befsre he ever entered College, his master in the Grammar School, Swansea, told him that he was destined eventally to become a teacher. The late Principal W. M. Lewis, M.A., of Pontypool College, as well as Prof. D. Thomas, pointed out that he should very probaply occupy the post of tutor in one of their colleges. The late Dr Gotch, one of the revisers of the Old Testament, together with Dr Culross, urged him never to lose sight of the fact that eventually his work would be to train others. During his eight years pastorate he had succeeded in reducieg a debt of over L i, ioo to about £6.50, and had established the credit of the Church, which was almost gone when he came amongst them. He had found it an uphill work, during the years of trade depression they had witnessed, to meet all their financial claims, but up to the present, he was glad to inform them, that all such claims had been discharged. It had been an arduous work to raise £65 per annum in addi- tion to current expenses, but they had succeeded in accomplishing it. As to his new sphere, he might say that the Colwyn Bay Institute was established by the Rev W. Hughes, a returned missionary, for the purpose of training natives of the Congo for evangelical work. They would not only be trained in theology, but would be taught a trade, so that, like Paul, a tent-maker, they would be self-supporting. Three of the speaker's fellow-students at Bristol College had died in Africa', victims to malarial fever. «Mr Hughes only just escaped becoming a victim, and the idea occurred to him that natives could be trained in this country with greater success than for white men to run such great risks to health and life. In concluding, the speaker expressed hearty thanks for the token of esteem with which they had presented him."
