IMPORTANT FORTHCOMING AUCTIONS AT COL- WYN BAY.—In our advertising columns, Mr F. A. Dew announces two important auctions to be held at the Public Hall, Colwyn Bay, commencing at 11.30 a.m. on Tuesdays, October 16th and 23rd. On October 16th, a large quantity of useful household furniture from Bay-view and Sea-view Houses, Rhos Parade, will be sold, and on October 23rd, Mr Dew will sell (by order of the Executors of the late Mr E. J. Alderman, of Glenhurst, Colwyn Bay) a large number of sporting and other effects. ST. PAUL'S MISSION ROOM.—The date for the opening of the new Mission Room in connexion with St. Paul's, and given by the Rev. J. G. Haworth, has been fixed for November isf. The proceedings will begin with Holy Communion in St. Paul's at 8 a.m.; at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., services and sermons in the new Mission Room, the preachers being the Rural Dean (Vicar of Abergele) and the Venerable Archdeacon Howell. The Sunday School children will have tea in the afternoon, and photographed on the grounds of the new Mission Room. INTERMEDIATE EDUCATION.—At the Llandrillo and Eirias School Board's special meeting on Wednesday evening, October roth, Mr Robert Evans In the chair, the Rev John Edwards and Mr D. O. Williams (who, being present, consented to serve) were elected as two of the Board's representatives under the Denbighshire Inter- mediate Education Scheme, the two lady- representatives to be the two ladies among the five nominated who were first found to be willing to serve. The five ladies nominated were Mrs Crump, Mrs Thomas Lloyd, Miss Owen, Miss Lewis (Eithinog), and Miss Wilks (Gorphwysfa). BRON-Y-NANT MEAT TEA.—A meat tea was held at Bron-y-nant Wesleyan Chapel, at half-past seven on Monday evening, October 8'h. The tables were nicely laid, the provisions were of the best, and a large company sat down to supper. The Chapel was thronged, and several friends contributed songs to the delight of the audience. The large number present spoke with gratification of the fact that the coffers of the Treasurer (Mr Hugh Owen, Garth) would be well filled. The ladies presiding over the tables namely, Mrs Williams, Hafod Cottage Mrs Roberts, Chapel House Mrs Griffiths, Board School and Mrs Davies, Dodd's Cottages were ably assisted by Miss Evans, Chapel House; Mrs Owen, Man- chester House Mrs Owen, Y Garth Miss M. Williams, Miss Wynne, and Mrs Williams, Dodd's Cottage Mrs Hughes, Vron Villa, Bronynant Miss Morris, Graianllyn Miss Hughes, Bryn- defaid and others. Mr Robert Owen, Dodd's Cottages and Mr R. Lloyd Jones, Ty Cefn rendered valuable assistance at the door. The Rev J. Kelly, Mr J. Hughes, Vron Villa, Brony- nant and Mr David Barlow, were also in great requisition. Later, Mr Enoch Jones, Gordon Villa, Colwyn Bay, proposed, in an eloquent speech, a most hearty vote of thanks to the ladies of Bronynant, for coming out so strongly and so thoroughly in aiding the object in view. The vote of thanks was seconded by Mr R. Lloyd Jones. The proceedings terminated with Miss Williams (Talybont)'s rendering of the Welsh National Anthem.—It has transpired that the takings at the supper, were £8. THE PLUCK FUND. Two GUINEAS FOR A PLUCKY POSTNIAN.- Jerome K. Jerome, editor of To-Day, has instituted a "Pluck Fund" (nourished by voluntary subscriptions), and the following extract concerning the Fund, and taken from To-Day of October 6th, will be found interesting by many of our readers I thank numerous correspondents who have called my attention to cases of bravery suitable to be rewarded out of the Pluck Fund but, however anxious I might be, I must point out that owing to the slenderness of the funds at my disposal, it will be impossible for me to take cognisance now of any case that occurred prior to August 25, when the idea was first conceived. Did I open the door to the past there wauld be no logical limit of time, and my resources would be swept away in a week. The cases—already forgotten by the public-that have been brought under my notice clearly prove the absolute necessity there has always existed for such a fund and it will be my hope for the future, if my readers will support me, to keep abreast with the instances that do occur. The case of the miner, Robert Evans, to whom I referred last week, who bravely risked, and in the end lost, his life by daring the fatal choke-damp to rescue a comrade, turns out to be a perfectly bona-fide one, and I am taking steps to have a memorial erecteci that the record of the brave deed may not be lost, and that honour may be done to the memory of a gallant man. I am sending a small sum of two guineas to Thomas Roberts, postman, for his promptitude in rescuing a woman who had tried to commit suicide in Colwyn Bay. No particular courage was needed in this instance, as the woman was not in deep water, but Roberts could not have known what difficulties might be before him, and he undoubtedly suffered damage in dashing into the sea, fully dressed as he was, and he also seems to have wounded his hand." THE PENRHYNSIDE CONGREGATIONALIST BAZAAR.—On Tuesday afternoon, October 9th, at Penrhynside, a two-days bazaar in aid of the Chapel Debt Fund of the Penrhynside Congrega- tional Church, was opened by Mrs Icke, Colwyn Bay. The stall-holders were Mrs Roberts, Bay View; Mrs Meredith, Cybi House; Miss Williams, Colwyn Bay Mrs Williams, Perisva Miss Wil- liams, Penrhynside; Miss Phillips, Penrhyn; Mrs W. James, Mrs Leigh, Mrs Robertson, and others. THE BRITISH AND FOREIGN BIBLE SOCIETY.— We would draw the attention of our readers to the annual meetings of the Colwyn Bay Auxiliary to the British and Foreign Bible Society, which are to be held next Wednesday, October 17th, the Welsh meeting at Engedi Chapel, and the English at the Public Hall. The deputation from the Parent Society this year is the Rev R. 0. Morris, M.A., who is a splendid speaker in the two languages, and the Society is the largest and broadest Bible Society in the world, and without its aid the majority of the Missionary Societies would have been helpless. COLWYN BAY A HEAD-POSTOFFICE.It is with pleasure that we announce that from October 1st Colwyn Bay has been constituted a Head-Post- office. This change brings to Mr 1. Jones, the energetic Postmaster, a considerable increase of work and responsibility with an increase (let us hope, commensurate) in emoluments. The public will derive, we learn, comparatively little immed- diate benefit in the way of increased facilities, (few improvements being at present feasible), but, on the arrival of the time for bettering any existing arrangement, the proposed alteration will be more speedily effected through Colwyn Bay being a Head-Postoffice, with a far-seeing Post- master of its own, not merely a Sub-Office under the jurisdiction of the Postmaster of Rhyl. A CONCERT AT RHOS ABBEY.—A capital concert was held, on Friday night, October 5th, at Rhos Abbey, in the large recreation room, formerly used as a Mission Room, the proceeds to be given towards the erection of steps from the esplanade to the beach. The Vicar of Llandrillo (who was accompanied by Mrs Venables-Williams) took the chair, and opened the proceedings with a humorous speech. The programme, which was excellent, was carried out in first-rate style, Chevalier's celebrated "Coster" songs, sung (in character) by Mr Reginald Hawkins, of Oxford, winning immense applause and repeated encores. Mr Evan Hughes's singing is too well-known and liked by the Colwyn Bay public to need praise. We would especially notice The Promise of Life," finely sung by Miss May Turner (of Birken- head), who also gave a serio-comic duett with Miss Wilson, which was encored. A description of this most enjoyable concert would be incomplete without a mention of Smart's beautiful duet When the tide floweth in from the sea," by Miss Murray (of Rho* Ahbey) and Mr Hawkins. Among the pleasantest features of the evening may be reckoned the two recitations by Mr Taylor, of Rydal Mount,, both of these being encored with enthusiasm.

Alderman of Glenhurst, Colwyn Bay, was on Friday afternoon, September 28th, interred in Llandrillo Churchyard, in the grave where the remains of Mrs Alderman had been laid nearly two years ago. The funeral was a private one, and the officiating clergy were the Revs W. Venables-Williams (Vicar of Llandrillo-vn-Rhos) and John Griffiths (Vicar of Colwyn). The chief mourners were Mr and Mrs Henry Alderman (son and daughter-in-law), Mrs Erskine (daughter), Miss Landon (niece), Mrs Charles Alderman (daughter-in-law), Masters J. and E. Alderman (grandchildren), Rev Mr Gourlie (of Chester); Mr Jones (Devonshire), the family solicitor Dr Price- Morris, the deceased's medical adviser. Wreaths were sent by Mr and Mrs Erskine, C. M., G. M.. and R. E. Alderman (grandchildren) the Rev N. J. N. Gourlie and Miss Landon, Mr and Mrs A. W. Newton, Miss Evans, Mochdre Mr and the Misses Wedderspoon, Messrs W. and S. Badger, Miss Carr, The Rev and Mrs J. H. Dixon and Miss Dixon, The Rev J. and Miss Griffiths, Friends at Ty'nmaes, Colwyn Bay The Misses Ranken, The Misses Coultate, Mr \V. T. Jones, Mr and Mrs Edwin Jones, and Messrs Jeffs & Son. The polished oak coffin, which was mounted with brown oak trimmings and massive brass furniture, bore an engraved brass name-plate inscribed EDWARD JOHN ALDERMAN Died Sept. 25th, 1894, Aged 84 years. The funeral arrangements were entrusted to Messrs D, Allen & Sons, Station Road, Colwyn Bay, who carried them out with efficiency and an absence of ostentation. A RATEPAYER'S MEETING. Convened by Mr F. A. Dew (Hon. Sec. of the Ratepayers' Association) a public meeting of ratepayers was held at the Public Hall, Colwyn Bay, on Friday evening, October 5th, "to discuss the action to be adopted by the Ratepayers' Association in connection with the forthcoming District Council Election at Colwyn Bay and Colwyn." Mr Mason, who was voted to the chair, said that the Government had come to the conclusion that the people must get back to the land. The new Local Government Act not only provided means for this, but also afforded an opportunity for putting into operation the ratepayers' views of the duties of Poor Law Guardians. Proceeding, the Chairman considered it advisable, in the election of a District Council, to replace some Local Board members by men who had passed through the mill." The present Local Board had made many blunders, it would be an impossibility to make a change for the worse. He would personally vote for any new candidate, even a jackass if there was no new candidate better. Mr F. A. Dew said that he had called that meeting in order to find out what further action they wished him to adopt. Silence prevailing, Mr F. A. Dew said that the only thing remaining (if there were no suggestions) would be to close the meeting. Mr F. Nunn explained the proceedure adopted in the early days of the Association, and that names should be suggested at that meeting and to the end of October, and that at a subsequent meeting (on the first Friday in November) the final selection of the Association's candidates should be made by ballot. He deprecated the introduction of party politics into the approaching election (Cheers). The motion, seconded by Mr Bateson, was put and carried. The Chairman thought that that meeting was a very suitable one to pass a resolution about the closing of the Groes Bridge. Mr Davies (Glyndwr) proposed that the meeting call upon the Local Board to put across the river two trestles as a footbridge. It would only cost £ 5 or so. Mr Lyon said that action was being taken too late. However, appeal to the Humane Society would even now remedy the matter. He pro- posed that the Authority be asked to put up a cart-road bridge, not merely a footbridge. It then transpired that Mr Lyon was not a rate- payer, although he had a lodger Parliamentary vote, and Mr W. H. Roberts said that the County Council had taken the Groes Bridge matter out of the Local Board's hands entirely. Mr Robert Evans suggested that tenders should be invited, from timber-merchants for the erection of a temporary footbridge, which would cost much less than £ ioo. He seconded Mr William Davies. Mr W. H. Roberts again explained that the County Council were in possession of the land. Mr Amphlett said that the danger was that the County Surveyor would not certify as fit for traffic a cheap bridge such as was proposed. Mr Greenfield said that all this talk came too late, in insistance upon a temporary bridge not having been made before tenders had been sought for the erection of the bridge. As it was, the only feasible thing was to encourage the contractor to increased speed in his work. Mr F. Nunn thought that the cost of providing a temporary bridge could have been raised by the sale of the fire-engine and the firemen's helmets, without coming upon the rates at all. The Chairman thought that the people ought to have the public spirit to put up a footbridge, and to risk having it taken down. The motion on being put, was carried, and the meeting came to an end. ABOLITION OF THE MUTUAL IMPROVMENT SOCIETY. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] Our old friend the Mutual Improvement Society held its annual meeting on Thursday evening, October 4th, in the Lecture Hall. After the time-honoured coffee-supper, the chair was taken by the Rev Thomas Lloyd, and the Treasurer (Mr Jefferies) read the financial statement, which showed a balance in hand, after all expenses were paid of £3 as. Mr Longmaid (the Secretary) reported a very succersful session, there having been a larger average attendance than in any previous year, and 25 per cent more names on the register. He attributed the success to the undenominational character of the Society, as its Committee and Officers were partly, and its members were largely friends from other Churches. The election of officers was then proceeded with, and a difficulty arose as to finding a Secretary, several gentleman being asked to take the office, but none consenting. Ultimately, this important office was left open until next meeting, all the other officers and committee being chosen. It was noticed that, unlike all otheryears, the new committee and officers were all Congrega- tionalists, and it was asked whether the Society was to lose Its unsectarian character. This pointed question, at once revealed a marked difference of opinion, the sectarian view being held by Mr and Mrs Lloyd and Mr Greenfield, and the more liberal interpretation by Messrs Jefferies, Atkinson, and Longmaid, the lady going so far as to say that members of other Churches were not wanted. She believed in everybody sticking to their own. On the other side. it was argued that a denominational basis would ruin the Society. Its usefulness and popularity, and the failure of other Societies where fsectarianism was insisted upon, were instanced. Each side, however, refused to see anything except what was in its own eye, the natural outcome of such short-sightedness being a proposition, moved by Mrs Lloyd, that the Society be abolished, and this was carried by a majority of four votes.
