PWLLYCROCHAN WOODS. WHEN we observe the rapid increase of Colwyn Bay, and the tremendous inroads made upon the natural rural beauty of the surroundings, by the builders and others, the conviction is forced upon us that these splendid Woods should in some way be secured for the unrestricted use of the public for all time. We believe that the attainment of this most desirable end was simply postponed some little time ago owing to the financial resources of the Local Board having at that time been somewhat severly taxed. The rateable value of the District has increased (and must be increasing) by leaps and bounds, and, while recognising the fact that rates at present are by no means at "low-water mark," we nevertheless think that, should the Local Board undertake this further (and we might almost say absolutely necessary liability, their action would be endorsed by every ratepayer who has sufficient at stake in the District to make him anxious for the future welfare of Colwyn Bay. We feel quite justified in the admission that the foregoing remarks have been prompted by by undisputable information which we have received, that sales to private individuals of certain portions of these Woods, justly termed "The Backbone of Colwyn Bay," are in contem- plation, and have indeed almost passed the preliminary stage. It is to be hoped that for some little time such proceedings may be stayed, in order that the matter may be thoroughly considered by the Local Authority in its new garb as a District Council, and this question might well form a "platform plank" in the coming election.

Loss OF A VESSEL NEAR COLWYN BAY, Two LIVES LOST.—During a severe storm on Sunday morning, October 21st, the flat Rose, of Runcorn, which had been loaded at the Merllyn quarry stage on the previous afternoon, sank off Penmaen Rock, Llanddulas. When first seen from land, the sails were above the water. A small boat was attached to the sunken vessel, and in this, at twenty minutes past seven, two men were seen pulling towards the shore. When in the breakers the boat capsized, and both were drowned. The boat, on coming ashore, was found to bear on the nameboard the inscription "R. Abraham, master." The caps of both men, whose names are R. Abraham, Runcorn, and Thomas Jones, Widnes, were washed ashore, but the bodies up to Thursday morning had not been recovered. The Ada Mary, which belongs to the same owners, was on Sunday lying close to the foundered vessel, and a large concourse of people assembled on the shore awaiting the recovery of the bodies. Boats have been out searching for the bodies of the two men who were drowned on Sunday, bu so far they have been unsuccessful. Until the gale of Wednesday night, the vessel remained in the same position, the top-mast and sail being visible from the shores, but on Thursday morning not a vestige was visible. It was rumoured that salvage operations involving the employment of a tug, had been in contemplation. THE ATTEMPTED FRAUD EN ROUTE FROM COLWYN BAY.—At the Carnarvonshire October Quarter Sessions, a young servant of the name of Mary Williams (22), said to be hailing from Llanddulas, was charged with attempting, by false pretences, to obtain from the London and North-Western Railway Company the sum of Lii 10s 8d. Mr Colt Williams prosecuted, and the prisoner was undefetided.-It appeared from the evidence that the prisoner travelled on the 19th of April last from Colwyn Bay to Llandudno, and alleged that she had with her two tin boxes containing clothes of the value of LiT 10s 8d. When she arrived at Llandudno Junction the prisoner said that she saw the two boxes (a large and a small one) properly labelled, and that she had asked a porter to take them over to the Llandudno train. When the prisoner arrived at Llandudno she told a parcel-clerk that the boxes were not forthcoming. In a few days after, on the 26th April, the prisoner complied with the request of the railway officials, and wrote out a statement of the contents of the boxes, which was all false, inasmuch as she had no boxes when leaving Colwyn Bay, they being at the time in a house at Rhyl, where she had previously been in service. The boxes were subsequently sent to her parents' house at Llanddulas. When it was found out that the claim was a bogus one, the prisoner admitted that it was so.—The prisoner, who was found guilty, but recommended to the mercy of the Court, was sentenced to two months im- prisonment with hard labour, she having already been two months in prison. LIBERAL DEMONSTRATION AT COLWYN BAY. SPEECHES BY MR T. E. ELLIS, M.P., AND MR HERBERT ROBERTS, M.P. THE BISHOPS' OPPOSITION TO EDUCATIONAL PROGRESS. A large and enthusiastic meeting of Liberals was held at the Public Hall, Colwyn Bay, on Friday night, October 19th, Mr David Lewis presiding. Mr T. E. Ellis, M.P., and Mr J. Herbert Roberts, M. P., were the principal speakers. After a few remarks from the chairman, Mr James Wood moved—" That this meeting desires to express its deep regret that the Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone has for physical reasons found it neces- sary to retire from the leadership of the Liberal Party, and this meeting desires to acknowledge his genius as a statesman, his knowledge of and deep interest in every department of human thought, and, further, expresses its gratitude for the fact that all his great gifts and noble qualities have ever been consecrated to the cause of order, truth, and justice." After moving the resolution, and quoting some remarks by Mr Chamberlain in praise of Mr Gladstone, Mr Wood informed the audience that on the previous day the following address had been presented privately to Mr Gladstone, on behalf of the Liberals of Colwyn Bay:- October 17, 1894. To the Right Honourable W. E. Gladstone. We, the Liberals of Colwyn Bay, desire to express our hearty welcome and our great joy on the occasion of your visit amongst us. We earnestly pray that health and happiness may be prolonged to Mrs Gladstone and yourself; and although a small and unimportant community, we can assure you that our hearts are warm and steadfast, and that we yield to none in sincere respect and admiration for the noble work you have accomplished and the righteous principles you have vindicated in times of profound calamity and distress. While journeying home, "happy warrior," conspicuous in the nation's eye, may Heaven direct your steps onward to whence cometh the light. In reply to the above. Mr James Wood received the following letter from the Rev Stephen Gladstone Gentlemen,—Your address was received by Mr Gladstone yesterday evening, and he desires me to express his thanks to you and to others whom you represent for your kind expressions towards himself and also Mrs Gladstone. He asks me to add that the Liberals of Wales have always been good to him-not beyond his wishes, but beyond his deserts. You will be glad to know also that his visit to Colwyn Bay has been greatly enjoyed, and has been beneficial to him and to Mrs Gladstone. -Believe me to be, yours very faith- fully, STEPHEN E. GLADSTONE. To Jas. Wood, Esq., John Roberts, Esq., Thomas parry, Esq., and the Liberals of Colwyn Bay. The address and reply were loudly cheered by the audience. The resolution was seconded by Mr Jeffrey Thomas, and carried with cheers. On the motion of the Rev John Edwards, seconded by Mr Blud, the meeting adopted a resolution expressive of satisfaction at the estab- lishment at Colwyn Bay of a branch of the Cymru Fydd Society. Mr Herbert Roberts, M.P., who was cordially received, then addressed the meeting. He said that was the first opportunity he had had of addressing his constituents, as such, at Colwyn Bay since his election as their representative in Parliament two years ago, and he wished to acknowledge gratefully, not only their strong support of his candidature, but the numerous acts of kindness received at their hands and many manifestations of confidence shown towards him during the period he had represented them in Parliament (Hear, hear). He knew well when he took the position that there were heavy responsi- bilities attached to it, but he must confess that he had not at the time realised to the full the :anxiety and labour involved in the duty of representing an important Welsh constituency at Westminster under the present conditions of Parliamentary life. But so long as he felt that he had behind him the confidence of his supporters the burden was easy to bear and the position a privilege of which he was proud (Applause). Their meeting that even- ing had a special importance owing to the presence of the chief Whip of the Liberal Party, Mr Thomas Ellis—(Applause),—whom they were all glad to welcome very warmly to Colwyn Bay (Applause). Very sincerely did they congratulate him upon the position of influence in which he had been placed in the Government, and they wished him health and strength to enjoy present and future distinctions in the service of his country (Hear, hear). The fact that Mr Ellis was a Welsh- man was an important element in the political situation of Wales, and a sure guarantee that Welsh interests would not be neglected in high quarters. He (Mr Roberts) was especially glad that his honourable friend should visit Colwyn Bay, and see for himself something of the enterprise and growth of that important centre of his constituency. It was a notable fact that despite the pressing claims of business and other matters connected with the town, its inhabitants continued to take an active interest in politics and to hold opinions of the most advanced and genuine
