Colwyn Bay and Colwyn Urban District Council. ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting of the above-named Authority was held in the Municipal Buildings, Station Road, Colwyn Bay, on Tuesday, April 21st, the following members being present :—Rev. Thomas Parry, A.C.C., Chairman Mr John Roberts, C.C., Vice-Chairman Revs. W. Ven- ables-Williams and J. G. Haworth, and Messrs George Bevan, John Porter, Robert Evans, Owen Williams, Hugh Davies, Hugh Hughes, William Da\ies, and John Blud, the Clerk (Mr James Porter) the Surveyor (Mr William Jones, A.M.I.C.E.), and the Collector (Mr Benjamin Powell). ELECTION OF CHAIRMAN.—PROTEST BY MR BEVAN. The Clerk, in replying to a question addressed to him, said that a Chairman might be appointed for the purpose of the meeting, until a regular Chairman was appointed, but the present Chair- man of the Council could remain in the chair and preside it he liked to do so. The Rev Thomas Parry, however, vacated the chair. Mr John Roberts said that he rose to propose the re-election of the Rev Thomas Parry as Chairman for the ensuing year. When they took into consideration the important work which was about to be commenced on the foreshore, it was only right and proper that Mr Parry should remain in office for another year. Mr Robert Evans seconded. The Rev J. G. Haworth, in supporting the motion, said that it was his intention to move, at a future meeting, that new Standing Orders should be provided. If Mr Parry was re-elected, he hoped the Council would not again be placed in such a disreputable condition as they were in at present. Mr Bevan protested most strongly against the Council allowing the chair to be monopolised by one man. He felt certain that there were other members of the Council whose qualifications for the chair were quite equal to those of Mr Parry. It was most unfair to allow one man to monopolise the chair when there were gentlemen, such as the squire of Pwllycrochan, Mr John Roberts, and Mr Owen Williams, who were most suitable can- didates for the post. He ventured to say that it was owing to the fact that the chair was nono- polised by one man, that there had been such a constant cry for divorce on the part of the repre- sentatives of Old Colwyn. Referring to himself, he said that he was afraid that he would have gone to his last resting-place before his turn came. However, inasmuch as the majority of the members thought that Mr Parry was the man to sit in the chair, he was not going to move an amendment, but he hoped that, if Mr Parry was re-elected, he would keep them in better order during the next twelve months. He hoped that he would make it his hobby to enforce the Standing Orders. Mr Blud, whilst agreeing with much that had been said by Mr Bevan as regarded the desirabi- lity of a change, said that it was not desirable at the present time. He had placed his views most clearly before the electors, therefore it was not necessary for him to repeat his previous statements. But he had given the electors special reasons why Mr Parry should be their Chairman during the ensuing year, and he ven- tured to say that by their votes the electors had placed Mr Parry in the chair. Mr Haworth Question. Mr Blud There is no question about it.—Con- tinuing, Mr Blud said that Mr Bevan had protes- ted against Mr Parry's re-election. Mr Bevan had been a member of the Board for many years, but he had never seen or heard of him protesting against the re-election of the Rev W. Venables- Williams. Perhaps, Mr Bevan was advancing in his views. Mr W. Davies supported the re-election of Mr Parry, and expressed a hope that he would live long to occupy the chair. The motion was then put to the meeting by the Clerk, and was declared unanimously carried. The Chairman, in returning thanks tor his re- election, said that it had always given him intense pleasure to preside over the meetings of the Council. He hoped, as Mr Haworth had put it, that before long LIe Standing Orders would be amended. They had been framed, by the old Local Board, some six or seven years ago, and had never been amended. He could assure Mr Bevan that he would keep order during the next twelve months, provided that he (Mr Bevan) would obey his ruling. [" Hear, hear," and laughter.] He hoped that they would all enjoy good health to carry out the work required to be done in the District. As had been pointed out to them by Mr John Roberts, he had had a great deal of trouble with the foreshore. Many of them thought that the foreshore would never be ac- quired, and that the contract would never be commenced. Fortunately, the foreshore was now their property, and the improvements had already been commenced. He hoped that they would soon see the day when the contract was completed to their satisfaction. There were many other things required, but they must take up one thing at a time, and they should be most careful not to over-burden the ratepayers. A great many people had come to Colwyn Bay with the intention of spending the last days of their lives there, and it would be a pity if they were driven away by unreasonable rates. THE VICE-CHAIRMAN. Mr John Roberts asked the Clerk whether the Council was compelled to appoint a Vice-Chairman and whether, in the absence of the Chairman, the Council could not appoint a chairman for the time being ? The Clerk replied that it was the general custom to elect a Vice-Chairman. Mr John Roberts said that, in that case, he would move that Mr Haworth be elected. The Rev. J. G. Haworth, after declining the honour, moved the re-election of Mr John Roberts. The Chairman seconded, and Mr John Roberts was unanimously re-elected. THE CHAIRMAN AS A MAGISTRATE.—REMINDED OF HIS DUTIES. Mr John Roberts said that, inasmuch as the Chairman had become a J.P. by virtue of this office, he had been made a magistrate by the voice of the people. He only hoped that Mr Parry would have the courage to sit on the Bench for another year. He himself thought a great deal more of magistrates who were made by the people than those who were made by someone else. They elected a Chairman to do what he could for them as a magistrate, and he hoped that Mr Parry would keep up the dignity of the Council. He did not like a remark of the Chair- man of the Bench that the Chairman of the Coun- cil was as a Justice a bird-of-passage." The Chairman I am proud of the word, Mr Roberts. The Vice-Chairman It reflected upon the dignity of the Council to call our Chairman a bird-of-passage." Mr W. Davies asked the Clerk whether, by virtue of his office as Chairman of the District Council, Mr Parry was not entitled to preside on the Bench as was the case in corporate boroughs. The Clerk promptly replied in the negative. Mr Blud said that, inasmuch as there were two or three Councillors who were also magistrates, he took that opportunity of appealing to them to do everything in their power with a view of sup- pressing drunkenness. They would soon have a large number of navvies at Colwyn Bay there- fore, it was highly necessary that the magistrates should go in for sobriety and moral behaviour. THE COMMITTEES.—A NEW EXPERIMENT. Mr Robert Evans moved a resolution to the effect that all the members of the Council be also members of the different Committees. Speaking in support of his motion, Mr Evans said that members of the Council had often to wait for the Committees to finish their work. Besides, he felt perfectly certain that he understood the duties of the Highways Committee as well as any of its members, and yet he had been left out in the cold. If members were unable to attend the Committee meetings, why should others be prevented from attending? They were there as representatives of the ratepayers, whom they should specially serve in Committee, where all the work was done. Mr Blud seconded. Mr Bevan opposed the motion, remarking that, if it was carried, the same business would have to be gone over three times. What was the good of having Committees if some of the members of the Council were not relieved from work ? He moved that each Committee consist of six members (with the Chairman as ex-officio), as hithertofore. Mr Porter seconded. Councillor William Davies, in supporting the original proposition, assured Mr Bevan that, if the same business was gone over a second time, the extra trouble was taken in the interests of the ratepayers. The Rev. Venables-Williams said that he felt disposed to vote in favour of the original propos- ition, although he felt certain that the new arrangement would not work satisfactorily. However, no harm would be done in giving it a trial. Mr Robert Evans said that, when the Council was first established, each Committee consisted of ten members, but the number was now only six. There also used to be a member from Old Colwyn on each Committee. Referring to the statement made by Mr Bevan with regard to the same work being gone over a third time, he said that Mr Bevan himself was worse than all the other members put together, for going over the same matter twice. He was always protesting against something or other. Upon a vote being taken, 8 members voted in favour of Mr Evans's proposition, and 3 against, the Council therefore deciding to adopt a new experiment. THE HOUR OF MEETING. Mr William Davies said that he had a resolution to propose in reference to the hour of meeting. The Chairman suggested that the motion should be brought forward at the next meeting. Mr William Davies said that he thought it advisable to bring the matter forward at that meeting. The Rev. J. G. Haworth said that he would support the motion, if Mr Davies obeyed the Standing Orders. Mr William Davies remarked that he was sent there to defend the ratepayers, and to do the best he could in their interest. He was not like some gentlemen who never opened their mouths except in their own interest. Mr John Roberts suggested that the different Committees meet on the same day. Mr Blud thought that these questions would best be considered at the next meeting. He had had a motion placed on the Agenda in reference to the hour of meeting, and it would be brought forward at the next meeting. The Rev Venables-Williams thought that the Council ought first of all to fix its hour of meeting; the Committees could be considered afterwards. The Clerk suggested that, inasmuch as the Council intended to amend the Standing Orders, the rules and regulations should be taken into consideration together. It was ultimately decided to take these matters into consideration at a Special Meeting to be held on the 5th prox. The Clerk was instructed to write to the Clerks of various other bodies, with the object of securing copies of their Standing Orders. THE FORESHORE IMPROVEMENTS. As the result of a motion by Mr John Roberts, the Council decided that a ceremony of laying the foundation-stone to the improvements on the foreshore, should take place on Whit-Monday. THE RESERVOIR QUESION. The following petition was read by the Chairman To the Chairman of the Colwyn Bay and Colwyn District Council. We, the undersigned, being ratepayers resi- ding in the neighbourhood of The Four Crosses" within the District of your Council, humbly peti- tion that a supply of water may be laid on for our use. The summer is fast approaching, and as at present we have to depend upon wells, which at such time get dry, it is very urgent and important that the Council should forthwith authorise the carrying out of the work. It is pointed out that the population of this District is rapidly increasing, and, consequently, more water is required than hithertofore. Dated this twentieth day of April, 1896. Signed, on behalf of other ratepayers, WM. EDWARDS, The Birchwood. ED. ROBERTS, Tandderwen." The Surveyor informed the Council that he had not been able to go into the question as thoroughly as he might have if the site of the proposed reservoir had been finally decided-upon, so as to allow the nature of the ground to be properly ex- amined, as a preliminary. He had taken as a basis the Scheme which he submitted to the Local Board three years ago. On reference to the plan which he had submitted, the Council would notice that it was then intended to con- struct a service-reservoir in one of the fields of Penybryn Farm, which had an elevation of about 560 feet above ordnance datum, and although the level of the Cowlyd supply was fixed at 5°0 head, still, owing to fric- tion and other circumstances, it did not reach any greater head than 350, and that only in the the western parts of the District, so that it would therefore be seen that the water would have to be lifted about 200ft. to reach the point proposed for the reservoir. The pump, &c., would be fixed on the south side of The Four Crosses," at about 350ft. ordnance datum. This would be the level to which the Cowlyd water would gravitate to the pump well, and this would be accomplished by laying a 6in. main from Nant Smithy to the well, but he pointed out that he was very doubtful whether the 6-in. main from Pensarn would allow sufficient water to flow up the new main to the pump, without first shutting off the water from the District, by which he meant that the capacity of the pump would be greater than the flow into the pump would be, without shutting it off the District. But, if the new giti. main was only laid from Pensarn to Nant Smithy, where the 6in. main branches off for the pump, there would be no necessity to turn oft the water from Colwyn Bay and Colwyn while the pump would be working. The Council should consider the question of laying a larger main, as a step by which the supply of water would be greatly improved. The raising- main from the pump would be laid along the Llanrwst Road. The service-reservoir would be constructed to hold about 400.000 gallons of water, which would be sufficient to supply the high-level area for about 6 or 7 days, so that, it any accident occurred, no inconvenience would be experienced in consequence of the delay caused by repairing. The Surveyor then gave the estimated cost of the work at about ^6000. The Rev Venables-Williams said that the members of the Council had better place their considering-caps on. It was a most serious matter, and required careful attention. Several other members agreed, and the matter was eventually left in the hands of the Surveyor, until the next meeting of the Sanitary Committee. This concluded the business, and the Council then arose.

The Midnight Adventure on the Little Orme. ALLEGED EXAGGERATED ACCOUNTS. One of the principals in the recent midnight adventure on the Little Orme writes:Will you permit me to vindicate the modicum of common sense which I happen to possess by eliminating the mythical in the occurrence as far as possible ? We had not climbed down towards the sea (as a matter of fact I had not a flying machine about me at the time), but had proceeded too far along the shore. We were in no danger of drowning at all, a fact which I assured myself of from the very first nor from exposure, as the night was warm, and there was plenty of shelter in case of rain. The excitement which arose is unintelligible to me. I did not say to the lifeboat, We decline to come," but "You can't possibly land go back." We had no wish for men to peril their lives in a matter which required but a little patience for its solution. It is manifest that any attempt on the part of the lifeboat, if indeed a possibility, would have been attended with great and quite unneces- sary danger to jail concerned. I don't hereby disparage the efforts of the crew I admired their pluck, and felt very grateful for their good intentions. At low water we were not in the least exhausted," but in a perfectly normal condition, and quite competent to have retraced our steps any distance. Although throughout we exper- ienced nothing of discomfort, still less of danger. we fully appreciate the kindness and solicitude shown us through ignorance of our state.
Spring at the Sea-Side. We venture to assert that the sea-side at spring is more delightful than any time of the year. If the winds are bleak, the rocks gather the sun- shine, and screen you against the blast. In the sweet mild moods of wayward April, a day on calm water, when you breathe the iodine and the ozone, has a most exhilarating and tonic effect. You find the natives a mild-eyed, mild-voice race, unlike the creatures of prey who have to make the brief season yield profits that must last the whole year. You pay local prices, not fancy prices. You makJ friends with the hardy honest race whom we especially love, the simple fisher- folk. All through the winter we have had our fish for breakfast-sole, whitings, fresh herrings fit for a king, golden mullet and silvery mackerel. Think of the hundred brave men and more who have gone down in their fishing smacks in the rough North Sea. The fishermen who have been obliged to lie up for the winter are now mending their nets, and bringing their black boats down to the beach. This is the season of the year when they will look upon you more as friends than fares. But wherever you take your walks abroad, far inland or along the coast line, you will find a hearty welcome. You are the herald and harbinger of a happier day. The winter, with it scarcity and anxiety, is departing, and the bounteous summer is not far off. That sweet warm sunshine seems to lift the burden from life, and impart to its breadth and freedom. Summer and autumn—winter as well-you may enjoy the coast, but there is only one spring time of the year, as of life, and the sea-side is then at its best and purest. Visits at the seaside might be more equalised, and be distributed over a larger space of time. The instinct of migration to the water- side is very strong on all of us Britishers. If you examine the map of Eastern Europe, you will see how the Greeks have everywhere loved the sea- board, while the slower Slavonic races invariably retreat inland towards the hills. XVe are like the Greeks and in such matters of good taste Greek instincts are invariably right. No paterfamilias who has Seen in the habit of taking his belongings annually to the seaside would willingly forego that great advantage. That annual trip both prolongs and intensifies existence. But times are hard and trade is dull. Fixed incomes, in many cases have sadly diminished. P. F. is not quite sure that hewill be able to afford the heavy outlay of the summer trip. But he might be very well able to afford to go to the seaside in the spring, in- stead of waiting for the fashionable season. You may get a house or lodgings for a guinea and a half which would cost you five or seven guineas a week in August or September. In various other ways the expenditure is materially diminished. It is not as if you lost anything by going in the spring instead of later on. You lose something in the way of society, but you gain more in the way of nature. In other respects you are a gainer. He who has never dwelt by the seaside in spring, watched the magical lights, heard its manifold voices, has missed the greatest balm and beauty which it owns.-London Society.

Sir,—I am informed that the crew of the schooner Warru of Dundalk, rescued by the lifeboat on Sunday the 12th inst., and landed at Colwyn Bay, were soliciting alms in that town on the following days. These men had no occasion to do anything of the kind, no, they were lodged by me immediately after landing, in the care of Mrs Jones (the Ship, Rhos), at the expense of the Shipwrecked Fisherman and Mariner's Society, and were told to remain there until they were able to board their vessel again, or, in the event of her becoming a wreck, they would be clothed and sent home. The S. F. and M. S., through their Hon. Agents, are prepared to deal with all shipwrecked people, either seamen or poor passengers, and forward them to their homes. As their Hon. Agent in this district, I will give prompt attention to any cases brought under my notice, and either attend myself or forward immediate instructions as to how they are to be dealt-with. In the event of shipwrecked persons being landed before there is time to apprise me, they may be given food and lodgings until I can be communicated-with, at the expense of the So- ciety.—I am, sir, yours faithfully, STEPHEN DUNPHY, Hon.
