Dew isso successful, when he stands with ivory hammer in hand, that much important property is disposed of through the well-known office at Llewelyn Chambers, Colwyn Bay, but we fancy that it might be safely said that even Mr. Dew rarely has the good fortune to offer by auction so ex- tremely excellent an investment in first-class free- hold commercial property as either of the two properties he is selling at the Royal Hotel, Colwyn Bay, at seven o'clock next Monday evening, September 17th. Lot I, comprises "Preswytfa," Abergele-road and Lot 2, "Central Chambers," Sea View Crescent. Particulars may be obtained of Mr. F. A. Dew, Auctioneer, or of Mr. Francis Nunn, Solicitor. THE ONLY CHANCE AT COLWYN BAY !—Only one night (Thursday, September 20th) will the people of Colwyn Bay have an opportunity of seeing Mr. W. Hogarth's celebrated No. I Comic Opera Company, in the most successful Comic Opera ever produced, Les Cloches de Corne- ville," which at eight o'clock that evening will be produced at the Public Hall. A HIGH-CLASS CONCERT NEXTTUESDAYEVENING. -At the Public Hall, at 7.45 p.m., next Tuesday, September isth, a grand concert will be given (under the esteemed patronage of the Rev. W. Venables-Williams, M.A.. Oxon., Chairman of the Colwyn Bay Local Board), the distinguished ctrlisles being Madame Conway, the favourite soprano of the Llandudno Pier Pavilion Concerts Mr. Leslie Harris, the celebrated drawing-room entertainer and humourist Mr. Arthur Payne, leader and solo violin to the Llandudno Pier Com- pany's Grand Orchestra; and Dr. Roland Rogers, pianist. The names of these artistes are sufficient to guarantee a genuine treat to lovers of music, and a large house should encourage the concert's enterprising organisers to such further efforts as would be found again and again additional attrac- tions to the visitors and residents of Colwyn Bay and neighbourhood. A RECITAL BY A PTOM -VIA-S. -This celebrated performer (a perfect Rubinstein on the harp) gave a superb performance in the Public Hall, on Mon- day evening, September loth. The lovely little prelude was an original meditation on a theme of Boscha, and was highly creditable to him both as performer and composer. In addition to this he performed a Fantasia on Lucretia Borgia," Home, Sweet Home," Song from Lieder ohne Worte," "The Harmonious Blacksmith," "Scottish Melodies," Chopin's Fantasia," Impromptu and American Airs" and" Welsh Melodies." The most striking, in our opinion, if we were to make any distinction, were the prelude above-mentioned, and the pieces byMendelssohn, Handel,and Chopin. In these the performer's marvellous execution was exhibited to perfection his scale passages were simply wonderful, and the delicacy of his touch in the soft passages is beyond our ability to ex- press, and as to the Chopin morceau, we thought it even more ethereal than even Rubinstein's pianoforte performance of it. The audience was absolutely unanimous as regards the appreciation of the performer's great ability, the applause being spontaneous and most enthusiastic and it is sincerely hoped that there may be an early repeti- tion of Aptommas's visit, and that Colwyn Bay will reward him by a large attendance, for we are sure that no one who heard him will easily forget the great treat he gave them. We sincerely hope that the residents and visitors will exert them- selves, when such people do come, to give them an enthusiastic reception and encourage them to come if we cannot have a proper musical esta- blishment, the next best thing is to have the best we can get of these entertainers, and we may rest assured that it is only encouragement that they want, they are sure to come if they are certain of support. THE JUVENILE MUSICIANS FROM THE STRANGE- WAYS HOMES.A grand concert was held, at the Public Hall, on Tuesday evening, September nth, by the juvenile hand-bell ringers from the Boys' and Girls' Refuges and Homes, Strangeways, Manchester. The presidential chair was taken by Mr. John Hatfield, of Colwyn Bay. Songs, choruses, recitations, and selections upon the bells and the bagpipes, miniature Highland sword- dance and Highland fling, etc., constituted the programme. An account of the work was given bv Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert R. Kirlew. The hall was filled. The party will remain the week, and this (Friday) evening a grand lantern procession will be formed and will wend its way along the wind- ing paths in the woods, where an open-air concert will be held. THE COLWYN BAY ENGLISH WESLEYAN CIRCUIT. -At the Liverpool District English Wesleyan) Synod's Autumnal Session, holden on Sept. 12th, the Home Mission Committee was re-appointed, and several grants were made, these including a special grant of -4-40 to the Colwyn Bay Circuit (for Llanrwst), and a similar grant of £ 30 to the Carnarvon Circuit (for Penmaenmawr). THE OXFORD LOCALS.—A correspondent points out that in the summary of the result of these examinations, which appeared in an issue of the 31st August, the 2nd Division of the Junior List (containing the names of candidates above 16 years of age) was inadvertently ommitted. It comprises the following names in this Centre :— M. O. Dutton and W. A. Jones (the Misses Matthews and Standring, Llanrwst), J. C. Wynn (Miss Barlow, Coed Pella, Colwyn Bay). A WELL-DESERVED BENEFIT NEXT MONDAY.— Next Monday, Sept. 17th, a grand complimentary concert will be given, at the Public Hall, for the benefit of Mr. F. W. Schofield and the Town Band.

At 3 o'clock the ladies went in for their first innings, and scored 22, Messrs. Joyce and Sterling doing great damage with their bowling, although they were only allowed to use their left hands. The gentlemen then went in, and batted left-handed, scoring 36 runs, the ladies fielding remarkably well, and Miss E. Smith's overhand bowling being well worthy of notice. In the second innings the ladies made 41 runs, Miss Major and Miss E. Smith batting exceedingly well. The ladies again went out into the field, and the gentlemen to the wickets, Mr. Sterling and Mr. Major making a great many runs towards the 58 they scored. In the gentlemen's second innings, Miss Nora Major and E. Smith did their share with the bowling, while Miss Major caught a remarkably swift ball at point. The wickets were drawn at 6 o'clock, the gentlemen beating the ladies by 21 runs. The names of each eleven are as follows Ladies' eleven,—Misses E. Smith, Stanley (Captain), Major, S. Major, Homer, E. Major, Hughes, N. Major, D. Owen, Clemoes, and Wadsworth. Gentlemen's eleven,—Messrs. Major (Captain), J. Joyce, A. E. Piercy, J. Piercy, S. E. Kidd, Kalber, Jackson, Sterling, D. Stanley, Jephson, and Reine. SAD ACCIDENT TO AN OLD RESIDENT. The painful news of the death of Mr Deane Stanley was received in Colwyn Bay on Wednes- day morning, September 12th, with the profoundest expressions of grief. He was thrown from his horse and killed on the spot, and was buried at Wildfonteur, Middlebury District, Transvaal. Mr Deane Stanley was so well- known here as to need no allusions on our part. His zeal for the welfare and progress of Colwyn Bay, was only equalled by the energy he used in forwarding any schemes with this object in view. As Secretary of the first Sports, as promoter of cricket-matches for visitors and residents, coupled with his geniality and bonhommie, his loss will be deeply felt. We trust to give further particulars in our next issue. We offer to his bereaved widow and family our sincerest sympathy, and feel sure that in so doing we are joined by everyone in Colwyn Bay. COLWYN BAY REVISION COURT. The Revision Court for the district of Colwyn Bay was held at the Police Court. Colwyn Bay, before the Hon. R. Cecil Grosvenor. Mr B. Bryan represented the Conservatives of West Denbighshire, and Mr Gwilym Parry looked after the interests of the Liberals. An objection was made to the vote of Mr John Roberts, Manchester, who is the owner of property in the district. He had been the possessor of it for eight years, but had not before applied for a vote. The objection was quashed, but no expenses were allowed. A little breeziness was added to the proceedings by the vigorous manner in which Mr Powell, Rate- collector to the Colwyn Bay and Colwyn Local Board, maintained his claim to be on the owner- ship list. Answering the revising-barrister as to whether he had any incumbrance on the property, he flung the deeds on the taUe, and said that the objection was merely a political dodge to do him out of a vote to which he had a perfect right. The claim was sustained.
