BANGOR BANKRUPTCY COURT.-On Monday, April 27th, before His Honour Judge Sir Horatio Lloyd, in the case of J. Evans (Colwyn Bay), Mr Hugh Roberts, Deputy Official Receiver, applied that he be adjudicated bankrupt, and that the compensation which he had promised to pay to his creditors be annulled.—It appeared that the debtor in 1893 made an offer of 10s in the Z to his creditors, payable in four instalments of 2s 6d. The offer was accepted, and the first instalment was paid, but the others were not. Evans had left Colwyn Bay, and could not be found.—The application was granted. WELCOME HOME OF DR MONTAGUE AND MRS VENABLES-WILLIAMS, Bryn.—It became known that Dr Montague Venables-Williams and Mrs Williams were to arrive at Colwyn Bay, from London, by the 6.26 train on Saturday evening, lVIav 2nd. and it an nnnnrtunitv for the noted Prize Cadwgan Brass—(nay, we must now say Silver) Band to appear in Colwyn Bay with their new silver instruments, for the first time, and it is hoped that they will be able to raise ere long sufficient funds to clear off the debt incurred by obtaining these new instruments, of which they, by their latest successes, have shown themselves fully deserving. As soon as the Doctor and his bride entered their carriage-and-pair, the Band struck up a lively March, and led the way up Station-Road. Following the carriage, was a second, in which was the Rev W. Venables- Williams (M.A. Oxon., Vicar of Llandrillo-yn- Rhos) and Mrs Venables-Williams, Mr and Mrs Norman Clough. Other carriages followed, and a large concourse of people, the Doctor being saluted on all sides. COLWYN BAY C.E.T.S. BRANCH.—A tea-party and entertainment, in connexion with the Colwyn Bay Branch of the Church of England Temper- ance Society, was held on Monday evening, May 4th, in the new Church-room, which was opened the Sunday previous. The room is well-lighted, spacious and lofty, has an excellent platform, and is well adapted for every kind of meeting is warmed by a large stove, and in every way is an excellent room for entertainment of a similar class to the one held in it on Monday evening. Tea was served, at five o'clock, to a large gather- ing of members and friends of the Society, the tea having been capitally arranged by Miss Rowley, Miss Amy Everett, and Miss A. Retemeyer, who were ably assisted by Miss Pratt, Miss Ellen Barlow, Miss Lucy Crossley, Mrs Roberts (Vicarage), Miss Hands, Miss Atcherley, Miss Sharp, Miss Redding, Miss Louie Everett, Miss Margaret Williams, and the Revs. J. Jones and R. Theo. Jones, Mr Exell being the door-steward. Everything in connexion with the tea-party passed off capitally, and at seven o'clock Mr W. H. Cogswell (Beach Holme) took the chair, and ably conducted the artistes through their respective duties as represented on the well selected programme. The President, after having himself addressed the meeting, called upon Mrs Sewell and Miss L. Everett to play the pianoforte duett, Rubenstein's Tarantelle," and they went through their portion of the programme as only skilled instrumentalists can do. The serenade. The Stars that are shining bright," was a bright exposition of the Rev. J. Jones's qualities as a vocalist. Miss Jucks sang By the fountain," and was warmly applauded. The Rev. W. T. Davies sang" Whisper, and I shall hear," in such a manner that the applause broke forth,—not in a whisper," but in thunder-claps. The reading of The Screever's Vengeance," by Miss Wilson (Sorrenta) was listened to attentively by everyone in the audience, and was well appreciated. The Rev. Canon Linton addressed the meeting, and Miss Redding rendered a pianoforte solo with much skill. Miss Jeaumeaux rendered The four-leaved Shamrock," and greatly delighted the audience. Mr R. Ll. Samuel gave an exquisite rendering of London Bridge," Mrs Sewell giving an exceptionally good rendering of" The New Kingdom." The quartett The Spring was so well rendered by the Druid Quartette Party (Messrs T. Williams, W. Williams, Llew Davies, and J. W. Jones), that a repitition was demanded and acceded to, and even then it was too short for the President's liking. Mr Llewelyn Davies, who was in capital voice, gave The Old Soldier," with true martial spirit, the refrain being so well taken up that the audience could not refrain from keeping the measured-beat time with their feet, making a capital side-drum lett-beat accompaniment in response to an encore, Mr Davies sang a Welsh melody, "Breuddwyd y Frenhines," and was again warmly applauded. The duett, "Good- night, beloved," was effectively rendered by Mrs Sewell and Miss Louie Everett. The C.E.T.S. membership cards were handed by the Rev. J. Jones, to new members, and the President pro- posed a vote of thanks to the ladies for so excellent a tea, the Rev. R. Theo. Jones second- ing. The Rev. J. G. Haworth proposed a vote of thanks to the President, the Rev. J. Jones seconding. The President briefly responded and announced that Mr Chaplin would close the entertainment with some local lantern-slides, which were capital, among others being the old workshops where the services were first held at Colwyn Bay then the first St. Paul's Iron Church, the Mission-room, St. Paul's Church as it will be when finished, Coed Pella Mission Church, Rev. W. Venables-Williams, Rev. J. Griffiths, Canon Roberts, map of district, Curate, Wardens, Sunday School, Mr Douglas the architect, Mr Parry and Sons, and the Verger), Finale, God Save the Queen." PROPERTY SALE AT COLWYN BAY.—On Monday, May 4th, at the Colwyn Bay Hotel, the freehold dwelling-house (facing the Rhos Promenade) known as Hughenden, and recently in the occu- pation of Mr. C. T. Hawkins, was offered for sale by auction by Mr F. A. Dew, of Colwyn Bay. There was a good attendance of neighbouring property-owners and others interested in real estate at Colwyn Bay. Before offering the pro- perty, the auctioneer was able to inform the company that the land known as Rhos Estate had just been sold by private treaty to a well-known Birmingham gentleman, whose intention it was to rapidly develope the Estate by building opera- tions on a large scale. The property was started at £500, and, after spirited competition, was knocked down to Mr George Hill, of Bod Euryn, Colwyn Bay, at £75: Mr Henry F. Gaplin, solicitor, Oxford, acted on behalf of Mr A. E. Preston (also of Oxford), the Trustee of Mr C. T. Hawkins's estate.
