The service will commence at seven o'clock. All seats are free, and hymn- books will be provided. DENBIGHITES AT COLWYN BAY.—On Whit- Monday, the members of the Denbigh Wesleyan Literary Society had a treat to Colwyn Bay. They were conveyed there in two brakes. The weather was beautifully fine, and at the day's close It was the unanimous opinion that the outing had bein productive of immense enjoyment, and that the scenery, all the way, from Denbigh to Colwyn Bay, was grand. THE ABERGELE VOLUNTEERS.—Captain F. A. Dew (Lieutenant Colwyn Bay Company 2nd V. B. R. W. F.). and Surgeon-Captain W. Duncan Fraser, attended at the Abergele Town Hall, on Saturday evening, May 23rd, when twenty-one recruits were enlisted. Dr Jones (of Abergele) has been appointed Lieutenant of the Abergele Company, of which Captain Dew is Commandant, and Sergeant-Instructor Pitt (of the 23rd Royal Welsh Fusiliers) will be in charge of headquarters. ANNUAL MEETINGS OF THE CONGO INSTITUTE. On Sunday, May 31st, and Tuesday, June 2nd, very successful meetings were held in the Public Hall, in connexion with the eighth anniversary of the Congo Training Institute, Colwyn Bay. On the Sunday, most interesting and touching addresses were delivered by the Rev Thomas L. Johnson, the African evangelist, whose previous visit, some two years ago, awakened so much sympathy with the work, and was fraught with so much blessing to those who heard him. Nor were those who listened to him on this occasion dis- appointed. His simple earnestness and pathos as he pleaded for the land of his fathers must have moved many hearts, as well as the beautiful sing- ing of Mrs Johnson and himself, and Miss Jones. During the evening service, Kwesi Quainoo (one of the African students) told the story of his conversion, and of how, in answer to his prayers, the Lord, in a wonderful manner, through the instrumentality of the late Lord Coleridge (Lord Chief Justice of England) opened the way for his coming to this country for missionary training at the Congo Institute. On Tuesday, the General Committee met in the morning and afternoon for the discussion of business, and to hear the various reports of the work accomplished during the past year, which were of a most cheering and encouraging char- acter. The receipts at the close of the financial year showed the ,substantial increase of nearly £ 400, which in itself is most gratifying. The total income for the year was £ 1,882 17s 4d, as com- pared with LI,504 55 2d the year previous, and a little over L80 seven years ago. With an increas- ing income, however, has come a heavier expendi- ture, especially in connexion with the institutions in Africa, where nearly £600 was spent during the last twelve months. The students have made excellent progress with their studies, and the report of their vanous examinations show a great amount of hard work done on the part of both teacher and pupils. In addition to their ordinary studies and learning their different trades, several of the students have succeeded in obtaining certi- ficates in tonic-solfa, and of the St. John's Ambu- lance Association for Rendering First Aid to the Injured. There are at present 16 students in the Institution, and five more are expected during the next few weeks, which will bring the number of students up to 21, the largest number that has yet been in the Institute. In the evening, the Welsh friends had a special treat in listening to the two noted Welsh preachers. the Revs. E. T. Jones (Llwynpia) and B. Thomas (Letterston). Without doubt, the sermons on this occasionlwere most eloquent, and were thoroughly enjoyed. It is not often that the Welsh people of Colwyn Bay have the opportunity of hearing two such great preachers and it was not surprising, therefore, to see many friends from the surround- ing villages-some even from long distances—at the meeting All the services were well-attended, especially on Sunday afternoon, when the Hall was crowded and the collections on each occasion were very good. In the course of the Tuesday evening meeting, the Rev R. B. Richardson, D. D., President of the Ricks' Institute, Liberia, who has just arrived in this country, and whose voice, we hope, will be frequently heard at the Congo Institute services before his return to Africa, after opening the meeting by reading and prayer, said that he had a very pleasant duty which he felt it an honour to perform, and that was, to convey to the Rev W. Hughes, F.R.G.S., Principal of the Congo Institute, Colwyn Bay, the following message from the President of the Liberian Republic, West Africa Department of State, Monrovia, April 29th, 1896. Sir, -The President of the Republic, who has followed with much pleasure your efforts for the spread of education, civilization, and religion in West Africa, has directed me to transmit to you, through the Rev R. B. Richardson, a Diploma, appointing you a Knight Official of the Liberian Order of African Redemption, in recognition of your labours, which I am to express the hope will be crowned with abundant and ever increasing success.—I have the honour to be, sir, your obedient servant, ARTHUR BARCLAY, Secre- tary of State." The Diploma, which is quite a work of art, bears the appropriate and suggestive motto" Love of liberty brought us here," and reads as follows :—"Republic of Liberia. Toall to whom these presents shall come greeting. Know ye that I, Joseph J. Cheeseman, President of Liberia, taking into consideration the sentiments of humanity which are displayed by you, W. Hughes, and being aware of your sincere wishes to be a usetul helber in the Christian work of civilising our brethren inhabiting the territory neighbouring to our Republic, desiring to give you a public testimony of our gratitude, using the faculties given us by the laws of our Republic, by these presents do ordain, constitute and appoint you Knight Official of the Liberian Humane Order of African Redemption, in virtue of which, from this day, you will be permitted to use and wear publicly the insignias of the Order in the class named and may the Omnipotent God ever guide you in your efforts for the good of our savage brothers. In testimony whereof I have caused the Seal of the Republic to be affixed. Given under my hand at the City of Monrovia, the twenty-eighth day of April, in the year of our Lord, 1896, and of the Republic the 49th.- JOSEPH J. CHEESEMAN, President of the Republic." All the many friends of the Institution will be glad to learn of the appreciation with which the Africans themselves regard the noble and un- wearying efforts which Mr Hughes is making on behalf of their long-neglected land, as shown by their conferring this honour upon him, and we now gladly seize this opportunity of re-echoing the hopes of many that he may long be spared to continue his good work for Africa. CRICKET. COLWYN BAY COLLEGE v. ARNOLD HOUSE, LLANDDULAs.-Played on the College ground on May 30th, and resulted in a victory for the home team by 38 runs. Arnold House batted first on a tolerably good wicket, but within half-an-hour were all out for the small total of 14 runs. The College made a bad start, losing their two first wickets without scoring, but succeeded, with the aid of extras, in compiling 52 runs, Willcocks (with 18) being the only one to make double figures. In the second innings, Arnold House did much better, and put together 50 runs, St. John making 18. For the College, Birks and Willcocks bowled with great success, while Latham and A. J. Toppin did good service behind the wickets. ARNOLD HOUSE. COLWYN BAY COLLEGE. J. Al. Pipon b Birks 3 L. F. Latham (Capt) b St L. E. Becher b Willcocks 4 John 0 W. E. Peel b Birks 1 H. A.
