The Woods Question at Colwyn Bay as others see it. -.A A correspondent writes to the Liverpool Mer- cury: P -ople who know Colwyn Bay and there are thousands in Lancashire and Cnesnire who do-were disturbed at hearing, a short time ago, that the beautiful Pwllycrochan Woods were to be no longer open to the public. To many visitors these Woods are only less attractive than the sea air and the noble views from the heights above the Bay. It is possible to wander for hours along tneir leafy walKs without discomfort on the hottest summer day. the dnriculty seems, now- ever, to have been only a question of money, and the Estate Company were, of course, within their legal rights in asking for a fair rental for the enjoyment of so desirable a public privilege. To put the matter on no higher ground, it is certainly not too much to say that Colwyn would lose far more than .£5d a year if, by any chance, the Pwilycrochan Woods were per- manently closed. Lady Erskine's late residence, the Pwllycrochan Hotel, Oakhurst, and Queen's Lodge, with the grounds around them, iorm a terrestrial paradise. Large pine woods, shady walks, warm valleys, wnere the air is as pleasant as in the South of France, glimpses of the blue sea here and there through breaks in the trees, 'views of Tan-y-Bryn, Plas Euryn, Bryndinarth, and other pretty residences and gardens at the foot of Bryn Euryn, also delightful views of the ancient tismng-weir and modern pier at Rhos, all go to make up a picture unsurpassed in the British Isles. Lord Beaconsheld had a great love ot trees, and when advocating the purcnase ot Burnham Beeches by the Corporation of London, pointed out tnat white almost everything else would in time weary, closed with these words—'Sylvan scenery never palls.' Should Colwyn Bay at any time lose the grand old Woods, 'Ichabod' might be an appropriate motto for tnat now favourite Welsh watering-place, as its crowning glory would then have departed." Tne following appeared as a leaderette in the Liverpool Evening Express of June iSLli Among tne many features which render Colwyn Bay a thing of beauty and a place of attractive- ness are tne Pwllycrochan vVoods. We venture this upon the evidence of the newspaper reports, trom wnicn it appears that the mnaDitants of the district are teverisnly anxious to possess them- selves of tne Woods eitner by rental or purcnase. The Estate Company are perfectly aware of the state ot public feeling, and are determined not to part witn the Woods on benevolent principles. for some time residents and visitors nave oeen permitted to enjoy the sylvan beauty of Pwlly- crocnan, and now rney rind tnat they cannot do witnout it. Having once tasted tne sweets of the woodland, Colwyn Bay, as several voices ex- pressed it at a public meeting, must have the Woods at any price.' It is not exactly good commercial policy to display such a feeling under the very eyes or tne Estate Company for a vendor, wno knows how to matte a bargain, usually raises the price of his goods in proportion to tne desire of the intending purchaser to acquire tnem. A bit of woodland growtn cannot be produced at pleasure. It taives a century or so tor nature, assisted by tne cultivation of man, to create a wood wnose trees are representative ot the locality. Colwyn Bay may purcnase an extensive acreage, and plant it for tne oenerit of posLenty, but it present residents noped to enjoy it themselves the trees must be of the quicK- growing description, as the tall poplar, not by any means the most beautiful of Britisn trees. Here are the Pwllycrochan Woods ready made and furnished, say some why not have tnem by paying the Company's price:" Anouier section declares tnat the public have certain rignts in tne vVoods, and tnat, for tne purposes of tne public, use is quite as good as possession. Tnere would be great force m this contention if the ngnts were conceded or admitted. But they are not. On the contrary, tne VVoods are to De rented, pur- chased, or closed. Tne Urban District Council have had two or three meetings to discuss tne question of renting or purchasing, on tne last occasion being about equally divided between the advisability or paying a rent of ^,50 for a year, witnout abrogating any possible public rignts that may exist, and of agreeing to such a rent on a draft agreement drawn up by the Company, in wnich it would appear tnat the Company recog- nise no public right whatsoever. Councillor Blud contends that the \Voods were left for the use of tne public, a matter which he believes can be settled oy documentary evidence. This, however, does not appear to be tne general opinion, or the ratepayers would not be so desirous of pur- chasing what tney believed tney already owned. It tnere be good foundation for this belief, Colwyn Bay would do well not to purchase in a hurry, since also the question of the footpaths does not appear to have been settled beyond cavil."
Funeral of Mrs. Jones, Bryn Aber, Colwyn Bay. All that was mortal of Mrs Ruth Jones, wife of Mr John Jones (of Bryn Aber and Grimsby House, Colwyn Bay), was interred on Tnursday atternoon, June 18th, in Colwyn Cemetery.

Mr William Roberts, Cystenyn Villa, Colwyn Bay, was the undertaker. For all the many tokens of sympathy shown towards his children and himself in their sorrow and bereavement, Mr John Jones desires us to give public expression to his flealft-felt gratitude.

The National Musical Festival of Wales. A general impression doubtless exists in the English mind that the Welsh National Eistedd- fod is purely an event of interest to natives of the Principality that the gathering is entirely devoid of interest or enjoyment for English people,—in short, that it is an occasion on which Welsh Bards meet for the purpose of extolling their native tongue, and of awarding prizes for the best compositions in that ancient language. This is quite an erroneous impression. English folk who attend the day meetings of the Eistedd- fod at Llandudno, next Tuesday and following days, will find a musical treat of a high order awaiting them. On Tuesday, in addition to minor musical items, there is a grand choral competi- tion for a prize of 200 guineas. Wales is noted for choral singing, and on this occasion six of the best Choral Societies in the Principality will compete, in three pieces, including Where His loud voice in thunder spoke (Haiidel's Jephilia). This will be an opportunity of rare occurrence for visitors from England to hear the best chorus singing that Wales can produce. In the evening, the prize cantata The Garden is to be per- formed by the Eisteddfod Choir of 5°0 voices, with the Pier Orchestra of 60 musicians. Dr. Roland Rogers, the composer of the cantata, will conduct, the artistes being Miss Maggie Davies, Mr H. Jones, and Mr Ffrangcon Davies. On Wednesday afternoon, another notable event takes place, in which twelve Male Choirs compete for a prize of ^42. This will be a vocal treat to English people, and scarcely less attractive than the one already alluded to and in the evening, Dr. Joseph Parry is announced to conduct his new historical cantata "Cambria." A new choral ballad, Ivry," will also be conducted by the composer—Mr G. H. Pugh, Mus. Bac. Thurs- day's vocal attraction will be a Ladies' Choirs competition, for which there are seven entries. On that evening, the vocalists at a grand Miscel- laneous Concert are Madame Belle Cole, Mr Ben Davies, and Mr Ffrangcon-Davies. On Friday afternoon, another choral treat is announced, in which seven capable Societies compete for an award of C70, the competition pieces including "May no rash intruder" (Handel's Solomon). This will be followed in the evening by a grand Concert, with the Messiah by a Choir of 500, the Pier Orchestra, and Miss Mclntvre, Madame Cole, Mr Lloyd Chandos, and Mr David Hughes as soloists. On Saturday there is a Brass Band contest. The Eisteddfod, therefore, cannot be called a purely Welsh gathering, and the manage- ment hope to see thousands of English folk present. -n_
