The petitions are got up ostensibly in the combined interests of Welsh lodging-house keepers and week-end tourists," the latter, it is alleged being prevented from patronising the former as extensively as they otherwise would owing to the limitations placed upon their holiday enjoyment by the compulsory closing of public houses on Sundays. It is pro- posed, if possible, to free Rhyl, Llandudno, Colwyn Bay, Beaumaris, Pwllheli, and other popular watering-places on the North Wales coast, from the operation of the Act, at least during the tourist season." THE COLWYN WELSH BAPTIST COFFEE-SUPPER. —A coffee-supper and an entertainment were held at the Welsh Baptist Schoolroom, on Wed- nesday, March 25th, the supper being laid for seven o'clock, when the Schoolroom was crowded. At one end was a stall well filled with useful articles and wearing-apparel. The tables were superintended over by Mrs Evans (Bryn-y- Gwynt), who was the generous. hostess on this occasion, and who was assisted by all the lady members of the congregation, the gentlemen also being most faithful to the cause, as was evinced by their ready a-sistance. At eight o'clock, an entertainment was held in the Chapel, under the presidency of Mr W. Lloyd Evans (Colwyn Bay), the edifice being well filled. There were on the programme two items which had awakened the curiosity of a great number of those present, one being the fact that a prize of 2s was offered to each one who would read one small verse cor- rectly and the other being the rendition of Coi-me-nai," by the Colwyn Choral Society. The interest in the former, however, was some- what spoilt by from the circumstance that the promoter had trusted a friend with the knowledge of the verse in secrecy, but that friend not only competed, but gave the information to others of his friends, and they (knowing, as they did, the verse) participated in the competition, the result of course being that they read the verse correctly. The posistions of accompanists were ably filled by Mr Walker and Mr D. O. Williams. The programme opened with a pianoforte duett by the Misses Evans (Bryn-y-Gwynt), who, on being encored, played the piece over a second time. Miss Jones (Llawes-y-Coed, Coed Coch), then gave a recitation, Ymrafael rhwng Gwr a Gwraig," and, in answer to an encore, recited The Masher," this piece also taking well. Miss Hughes (Colwyn) then sang" The Holy City in such a manner that an encore was inevitable, Miss Hughes acceding to the wishes of the audience. Three entered the competition in describing an article without naming it Mr J. W. Vaughan and Mr Owen Williams were the adjudicators, the subject being "Jam," and the prize was awarded to Mr W. L. Jones, Henhlas Villa. Jenkins's Temperance solo "Codwn yn Lluoedd was well rendered by Mr John Parry. In the absence of Mr Llew Jones, Mr Evans gave a recitation, But," and was warmly applauded. Song." Wanted, a Wife," Mr Evans. Great interest was manifested in the next competition, when a prize of 2s was offered to each one who would read one small verse correctly, fifteen came forward, and out of these five read the verse correct, as far as one small word in the verse was concerned, ten competitors transforming one word into quite another, which greatly amazed (and yet amused) the audience, who were anxious afterwards to know where the verse was. This was no doubt the most novel competition held at Colwyn. Mr R. J. Davies sang (in the absence of Mr E. C. Evans) Dim ond Deilen," and was well received. Mr J. W. Vaughan then recited a composition of his own, entitled The Rich Man and the Poor Man," and was also well re- ceived (this was the first time for this composi- tion to be recited in public). The long-expected item on the programme, was at last come-to, and, on the president announcing that the Choir would now sing Coi-wee-nai-no," the applause was deafening, and was continued while the Choir were being arranged, and, as the last note faded away, the encore was with such gusto that we have no hesitation in saying that the like had not been heard in the neighbourhood, for some time past. The Choir gave a repitition of the rendering of this remarkable piece, the audience repeating their applause. After the usual vote of thanks, especially to Mrs Evans (Bryn-y-Gwynt) for her good-heartedness on all occasions, Mr Evans sang a song entitled Money." The entertainment, winding up with the Welsh National Anthem, the audience joining in the refrain.—It is understood that the proceeds to be handed over to the Baptist Funds, totalled over £20. Capital, Mrs Evans, capital GOSPEL TEMPERANCE ASSOCIATION.—An illus- trated limelight Temperance lecture entitled An Hour in Picture Land was given at the Public Hall, on Friday evening, March 27th, by Mr Frank Adkins, of the United Kingdom Baud of Hope Union. There was a great number of juveniles present and in the course of the lecture Mr Adkins questioned the children on several points, and their ready answers were most explicit, and added greatly to the interest of the meeting. The views calling for special mention, were entitled "The beautiful fruits of the Earth." All among the barley," The interior of a brewery (" A barrel of Burton being most instructive to both young and old), Treading the grapes (this called forth special apprecia- tion), Drunken Greek slaves," A boat-race on the Tyne," Teetotal navvies," -1 The iron horse and his master," In the harvest-field," Near- est the North Pole," "Jack and his hard lump," "The drunkard's home," and "Looking for father." The chair was occupied by Mr F. Nunn. Hopes are expressed that Mr Adkins will not delay too long before paying another visit to Colwyn Bay.
