I THE COLWYN BAY GAS BILL IN PARLIAMENT. -On May 15th, the Earl of Morley, Chairman of Committees of the House of Lords, dealt with a number of unopposed Bills. Among them was the Colwyn Bay and District Gas Bill. It incor- porates and gives further powers to the Colwyn Bay and District Gas Company, including the power to raise £ 20,000 additional capital. The preamble was proved by Mr Amphlett (of Messrs Jones, Porter, and Amphlett, Colwyn Bay, solicitors to the Company). The Bill was ordered to be reported. ENGLISH BAPTIST CHURCH.—On Sunday next (Whit-Sunday) special services will be held in the above-named Church both morning and evening. There will be a special evangelistic service in the evening at seven o'clock, when the pastor (Rev. H. T. Cousins, F.R.G.S.) will deliver an address on Washed-white or White- washed?" Sankey's hymns will be used, and all seats are free and unappropriated. WREXHAM HORSE SALES. The Wrexham Advertiser (Saturday, May 16th) contained the following Friday, the second day of May show, drew 300 single and double harness horses and hunters to the North Wales Horse Reposi- tory, Wrexham. The exhibits included some fine animals. The sale was a very good one, and the top price paid was 150 guineas, given by Mr Joseph Broome, of Llandudno, for a pair of bright bay geldings, the property of Mr Edward Bailey, Ashley Heath. A pair of geldings, sent by Mr John Jones, Whitegate Farm, Wrexham, went for 120 guineas, while several horses realised over 60 guineas each. Mr Edwin Jones, the well-known coaching proprietor of Colwyn Bay, was a large purchaser. Saturday the last dav of the sale, was confined to small harness horses, stepping cobs, and Welsh ponies, and nearly 400 were entered. Among the largest buyers at this sale were Mr Edwin Jones, of Colwyn Bay, the widely-known coach proprietor, whose coaching tours in North Wales have now become so popular Mr Harveyson and Mr Scott, of London and Mr King, Ayr. The sale has been an exceptionally good one. THE SEASON AT COLWYN BAY.—The Season has commenced. Mr Schofield's Band takes well this season, the self-same vocalists of last summer again supply the solos, and being warmly received on each appearance. The lawn tennis courts are now open for the season, and on Saturday, May 16th, a very large gather- ing were on the grounds, it being the Saturday afternoon-tea tennis the Committee have deemed it wise to again retain their groundsman (Mr E. H. Chaplin), who is now entering on his eighth season as the Colwyn Bay Tennis-court grounds- man. The boats have also been well patronised during these past weeks of hot weather, but the sudden shrinkage of the mercury in the thermo- meter occasioned a sudden disappearance of the pleasure-boats. Mr Chaplin's studio will be greatly missed from the shore this season, but we may as well inform his friends that he is still in the photographic business at Bron Castell, whither the Liberal Club has removed. KINGSWOOD AND WOODHOUSE GROVE SCHOOL ANNUAL DINNER.—This took place, on Wednes- day evening, May 6th, at the Holborn Restaurant, where forty-four sat down to discuss an excellent menu. The chair was taken by Mr T. G. Osborn, M.A., J.P., through whose hands a great number of those present had passed. In proposing the toast of The School," he referred very touch- ingly to the recent deaths of Perry Lord in China, and Revs A. Romilly Ingram and J. P. Fiddian in India.—Mr A. E. Booth, an old Grove boy, seconded the toast.—Mr Walter P. Workman responded for the School. The Rev R. Goodhew Dawson of Birmingham, proposed the Guests," to which Mr R. \V. Perks, M.P., who \\as accor- ded musical honours, responded. He lamented his mistortune in hot having been a pupil of Mr Osborn.—The Rev Atherton Knowles, vicar of St. James, Ratcliff, proposed the health of the chairman.The chairman, in responding, said, that he would never forget the kind way in which they had received him that evening. INTERMEDIATE EDUCATION.—At the Denbigh- shire County Government Body's meeting (at Wrexham) on May 6th, it was decided to allow the Abergele Local Governing Body to take the necessary steps for the establishment of a per- manent Intermediate School at Abergele, for the Local District which includes Colwyn Bay. It should not be forgotten that, while scholarships and bursaries for the Abergele School will be obtainable by success in competitive examina- tions, the Colwyn Bay Higher-Grade School is practically an Intermediate School under another name, all the Intermediate School subjects being taught there, and these subjects to fully as advanced stages. "CHURCH ENTERPRISE" AT COLWYN BAY.- The Welsh Church Notes of The Liverpool Courier, contain the following comment on Canon Roberts's success in raising the £500 required lately Canon Roberts, the Vicar of Colwyn Bay, has not taken long in securing the L500 required to meet a similar grant towards the Vicarage Building Fund. It speaks well for Church enterprise in this popular seaside resort that within the last three years no less than £ 10,000 has been raised for Church purposes." THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY.—The "N" (Colwyn Bay) Company 2nd V.B. Royal Welsh Fusiliers turned out in goodly numbers under the command of Captain Stubbs on Wednesday evening, May 20th, to celebrate Her Majesty's Birthday. After marching to Bryn Euryn field, and taking part in company drill, the feu de joie was fired, after which the Company returned to head quarters. It may be noted that the Queen's Birthday parade was the first occasion on which the N Company's new Bugle Band went out. GOLF.—It is gratifying for us to refer to the very good form exhibited by a local player in the ladies golfing championship, which took place on the Links at Hoylake last week. The lady indicated, is Miss E. L. Kennedy, who resides at Strathallan, Colwyn Bay, and who (out of over eighty players) well maintained her own until the fifth round was reached, when she was knocked out by one point only. When it is taken into account that the best London and Provincial Clubs, as well as those of Scotland and Ireland, were well represented, it will readily be seen that Miss Kennedy's play must have been of no mean order. We should also add that this is Miss Kennedy's first appearance in any open competiton. SATURDAY AFTERNOON LECTURE BY CANON LINTON.-Canon Linton (who has taken up his resideace at The Poplars, Colwyn Bay) is in charge of the Mission Church during the Rev. J. G. Haworth's absence, and at three o'clock every Saturday afternoon he will give elementary science and Bible lectures to the young people, the first of these was held May 16th, and not only were the young people present, but also the elderly ones also. The lecture was bright and full of instructive lessons. It is earnestly hoped that the young people will attend these lectures. THE PIER.-The Pier at Rhos-on-Sea will be opened for the season on May 23rd, when no doubt a large number of visitors will avail them- selves of the opportunity of viewing one of the grandest of panoramic views, from the pier-head. HUDSON'S MEMORIAL CHURCH SUNDAY SCHOOL. —The annual picnic of the adult members of the English Congregational Church Sunday School took place on Thursday, May 14th. At 9.30 a.m., Mr Edwin Jones's coaches were wearing their summer apparel when well-filled with tourists, namely, these Sunday School members who were accompanied by the Rev. Thomas Lloyd (pastor) and Mrs Lloyd. Each passenger on the Coaches looked the picture of happiness, and, while wait- ing for those who were not so early as they might have been,some of the party were evidently anxious to be moving. At last, however, all are seated, and, to the sound of the post-horn, the horses pranced away. The morning opened bright, and as the day advanced the heat increased until by noon it was intense, but the drive through Sychnant Pass was found refresh- ing beyond description. Dwygyfylchi having been reached in good time, all the passengers alighted, the Coaches driving on to Penmaen- mawr. The party of 45 commenced to climb the mountain, and, after a good deal of "tuchan" reached the summit, and, Oh, it was delightful
