COLWYN BAY. "DYFED" IS COMING !-Many will be pleased to learn that the popular bard Dyfed will shortly pay Colwyn Bay a visit, when he will lecture, on The Land of the Pyramids," at Engedi Schoolroom. WELSH CONGREGATIONAL TEA-PARTY AND CONCERT.—A successful tea-party and concert were held, at the Welsh Congregational Chapel, on Wednesday evening, January 29th, when the tables, which were most handsomely decorated with choice plants and cut-flowers, presented a charming effect. The lady attending to the hot- water arrangements was one who is always ready, namely, Mrs Williams (Oakfield); and, while mentioning this department, which is most essential to the making of a good cup of tea. we may (an behalf of the Church) thank Mr and Mrs Davies (Warwick House) for their courtesy on every occasion, in allowing free access to their domicile, where the chief portion of the success of these teas always lies. Taking charge of the provisions, were Mrs Roberts, 4, Railway-terrace; Mrs Williams, Plymouth Villa;, Mrs Davies, Warwick House; Mrs Davies, Rose Villa; and Miss Davies, Devon House. The following ladies presided at the various tables :—The Misses E. and B. Williams, 7, Rhiw Bank Terrace; Mrs Roberts, Llys Gelert; Miss M. E. Jones, 1, Ivy Street; Mrs Evans, 6, Ivy Street; Miss Maggie Rowlands, Glyn; Mrs Lloyd, Pendorlan Miss Mattie Lloyd; Mrs Williams, Ellerslea; Miss Owen, ditto; Miss Owen, Bodavon; Miss Davies, Rose Villa; Mrs Williams, Edern House; Miss Williams and Miss M. A. Williams, ditto; Mrs Elias Jones, The Towers; and Miss Jones, Nant Eirias. At six o'clock, a special table was arranged for the lady-assistants, etc., and this table was most gracefully presided-over by Mr R. J. Roberts (The Tea Exchange), who, by the way, was the caterer on this occasion, and everyone were loud in their praises of the ex- cellent quality of the comestibles. There was also a goodly muster of friends to tea, yet there was one absent whom all missed, and that person was the Pastor, who is (we are sorry to say) unable, through ill-health, to leave his room. At seven o'clock, a concert was presided-over by the Rev Thomas Parry, J.P., A.C.C., the pro- ceedings opening with the hymn Marchog Iesu yn llwyddianus," Miss Nellie Lloyd (Colwyn) afterwards playing a pianoforte solo so skilfully that a repetition was demanded. Miss Dilla Williams (Ellerslea) following, gave a capital recitation entitled "The Road to Heaven," which was listened-to with rapt attention. The presid- ent then addressed the meeting, after which the Conway Party rendered" Glannau Afon Dyfr- dwy," and were warmly applauded. Miss Mattie Lloyd, with her song, scored an encore. Only one Party entered for the competition in singing the congregational tune "Coetmor" and were awarded the prize; the Conductor was Master Johnnie Davies, Grove Road. The Conway Party then gave a dialogue entitled Ty anrhefnus ar foreu Sul." The anthem "Arglwydd dysg i mi dy lwybrau," was given by the Chapel Choir; the song, "Y dyddiau gynt," by Mr R. J. Roberts, —a fine rendering of this new song of Dr Parry's. An anthem, Ei Seren Ef," was then rendered by the Choir, Mr Davies (Warwick House) being the composer. The part-song Difyrwch y Tylwyth Teg," given by the Conway Party, was decidedly good; a dialogue followed, entitled Lie y mae'r ewyllys y mae'r gallu." Miss Mattie Lloyd gave an exquisite rendering of "Coming thro'the Rye," and received an encore. The glee" Welai sêr yr hafaidd nos," was very well rendered by the Conway Glee Party, who very effectively gave the dialogue Ty trefnus ar foreu Sul." Miss E. C. Williams (Conway) gave a very expressive rendition of that touching recitation The Selling of the Slave." The Rev T. C. Roberts proposed a vote of thanks to the tea-makers, artistes, and the chairman, and this was carried nem. dis., Mr Lloyd (Pendorlan) seconding the resolution. A most successful concert, ended with the Welsh National Anthem. CAREY HOUSE DEACONESSES' INSTITUTE.—On Tuesday, February 4th, at Chester Bankruptcy Court, Walter Simon Jones, stationer, Northgate Street, Chester, who formerly managed the affairs of the Carey House Deaconesses' Institute, Colwyn Bay, came up for his adjourned public examination. In reply to the Assistant Official Receiver (Mr Hugh Roberts), the debtor stated that the Carey House Institute originated with him, and was sanctioned by the Ebenezer Chapel, Chester. Carey House was supposed to hold seven deacons, and, with the servants, he should think that there would he ten people in it. Asked what was the reason why Mr Greenhouse, Manager of the Chester Branch of the North and South Wales Bank, suggested that he should reduce his overdraft, the debtor stated that his overdraft was £ 1400, and he told Mr Greenhouse that £ 900 of that had been lent to the Carey House and Ebenezer Chapel without security. Mr Greenhouse asked him to reduce his over- draft, he believed, because he was foolish enough to lend money without any security. Between £ 500 and £ 600 was due by the Carey House people 10 him. He had rendered an account of the money received by him in connexion with a bazaar in aid of Carey House, held in July, 1804, to the Committee of Carey House and Mr Mackenzie, the treasurer. At that time he was practically sole manager of everything in connexion with Carev House. Mr Mackenzie was treasurer, but the debtor found the money. He resigned the duties of financial secretary and receiver in the latter part of 1895. His wife had contributed j £ 8oo to Carey House and Ebenezer Chapel, and he protested against iK being placed to the credit of his estate. That was in addition to what h,' had paid, and it was all gone.- The examinati was adjourned, the debtor being ordered to furnish some accounts that he had neglected to submit. THE DATE OF NEXT COLWYN BAY CONFIRMA- TION.— It is announced that the Lord Bishop of St Asaph purposes to hold a Confirmation at St Paul's Church, Colwvn Bay, at 3.0 p.m. on April ist. A TREAT. -Palit,);Ill ilit' will be the order of the day here next week. For three nights and a matinee. Children of all ages are to have the chance of lively amusement, "The Forty Thieves" having been chosen whereby to fix the fact that Christmas does come once a year even to Colwyn Bay. According to pi ess opinions from the large Lancashire's towns where this new rendering by Hae Collier and Edward Neville of the immortal and delightful old story has been staged during the past five weeks. This pantomime is a good one, and Dr John Mooie's Company has been drawing large houses and dl,illgexcellent business with it, and the novel dances and variety special- ities introduced have been highly appreciated. The authors themselves appear in leading parts, and Mr Isaac J. South, the composer of the music, is the musical conductor. COLWYN BAY LITERARY AND SCIENTIFIC SOC- IETY.- The fourth meeting of the above-named Society, was held, on Tuesday evening, February 4th, at the English PI eshyterian Church, the subject being a lecture, "v Mr. G. P. Jenkins, F.R.A.S. (Vice-President of the Astronomical Society of Wales), on "The Moon as seen Through the Telescope." There was a large attendance of members and friends, and the lecture was listened-to throughout with the closest attention and interest. The subject matter was illustrated by lantern slides of phon ographs of lunar scenery (shown with the oxy-hydroen light) many of which had been taken by the lecturer himself. After dealing with vaious popular fallacies regarding the Moon and her functions, the lecturer proceeded to deal with the surface of the satellite. The highly-interesting slides shown, gave an excellent idea of 1 lie physical conformation of the Moon's surface. particularly of the various ciaters, the volcanic origin of which was indicated by comparing them with a striking photograph of Vesuvius (taken from above). Vast lunar Alps, and valley and rock figures, were also pointed out.—A hearty vote of thanks was unanimously accorded to Mr. Jenkins, for his highly instructive and interestinglecture, after whichthe proceedings terminated. THE RATING OF MANSIONS.—In view of the contentions brought forward at the recent assess- ment appeals at Colwyn Bay, the following ex- tract from the Builder, will he found of local interest:—"The ratable value of country houses based on their letting value is singularly un- certain a thing which enhances the value in the opinion of one man has no effect on the mind of another. At the present time the question is probably more difficult than it ever was, since a country mansion may leap from a useless en- cumbrance to a valuable rent-producing property, or it may do exactly the reverse. There are plenty of examples of this: there are houses which have been mere weights on their onwers' shoulders until some mercantile millionaire ap- pears who desires to live in a large country place, and who is willing to give a good price for what, after all, is not an article always to be had. If a country house, for instance, has been almost closed for five years, and has been absolutely a burden to the owner, and at the end of this time a wealthy personage from South Africa chooses to take it and to pay a large rent for what has called "one of the stately homes of England," is that house to be rated on the present rental, or bearing in mind the previous absence of*rental? Any amount of ingenuity may be exercised in such an argument. According to the Act of William IV., the rate is to be bassed on an esti- mate of the net annual value, that is to s,of the rent at which the property might be reasonably expected to let from year to year. But can the actual rent, in the example which we have given, be regarded as the rent which may reasonably be expected when a year before not half the amount could have been obtained.? THE COLWYN BAY MAIN ROADS.—At the Denbighshire County Council's quarterly meeting, at Wrexham, on Friday, January 31st, under the presidency of Alderman Samuel Moss, a discussion took place with reference to paying the Colwyn Bay Urban District Council the sum of £460, in discharge of the balance of the claim of £ 731 19s 3d., in respect of the maintenance of the main roads.—Alderman Thomas Parry (Colwyn Bay) protested against this reduction, and an amendment was moved and seconded to the effect that the full sum claimed he paid but this was defeated by a very large majority.—Alderman Parry intimated that the decision would be appealed against to the Local Government Board. -On the recommendation of the Technical Instruction Committee, it was resolved to make the following grants for 1895-96 :—Denbigh Town Council, £30; Wrexham Town Council, £114; Colwyn Bay Urban District Council, L25 Aber- gele, .£30; Llangollen Urban District Council, £ 35 Ruthin Town Council, £ 25 total, £259.
