HUDSON MEMORIAL SUNDAY SCHOOL ANNIVER- SARY.—The Rev. Jonathan Evans, of Buckley, preached very successful sermons on this anni- versary (June 2 I st), when collections amounting to nearly £ 9 were taken-up in aid of the English Congregational Sunday School Fund. THE NEW PROMENADE PROPOSED DEMONSTRA- TION.—A meeting of the Committee was held on Monday evening, June 22nd, when the Hon. Secretary and others reported that there was a certain amount of antagonistic feeling among the townspeople, regarding the movement the Com- mittee had in view. Opinions were freely expressed that there was undoubtedly a considerable amount of high feeling in the town, but quite unconnected with this movement however, it was decided that, without the undivided support of the rate- payers, such an important programmeas proposed, could not be carried out with success, and therefore the Committee were reluctantly obliged to let the matter drop. The Hon. Secretary was requested to convey the hearty thanks of the Committee to the President (Alderman Thomas Parry, J.P.) and those gentlemen who had kindly promised to act as Vice-Presidents. A vote of thanks to the Hon. Secretary (Mr William Jones, C.E.) was unanim- ously passed, and the Committee, whose proceed- ings have throughout been conducted most harmoniously, dissolved. ST. PAUL'S WELSH CHOIR TRIP.—The St. Paul's Welsh Choir were given their annual trip, by Mr Edwin Jones, upon one of his coaches, on Thursday, June 18th. This year they were taken to St. Asaph and Rhyl, and a most enjoy- able day was spent. A start was made from Colwyn B^y at 10 o'clock, and a halt of a few minutes was provided at Bodelwydden, so that the members of the Choir might have a look round the Marble Church. St. Asaph was reached a.t 12.30, and, before partaking of luncheon at the Plough Hotel, the members were conducted through the Deanery Grounds, and afterwards through the Cathedral, and, in order to gain a good appetite for luncheon, all made the somewhat stiff climb to the top of the Cathedral Tower, where they were duly rewarded for their exertions by a very fine view of the Vale of Clwyd (from Corwen to Rhyl). About three o'clock, after partaking of a very good luncheon, a start was made for Rhyl, when a stay of about an hour was made. Eventually, Colwyn Bay was reached about seven o'clock, after a most enjoyable drive. The members of the St. Paul's Choirs (English and Welsh) greatly appreciate the continued kindness of Mr Edwin Jones. Every year he gives each of the choirs a most enjoyable trip. The English Choir was taken this year to Bettws-y-coed, on the 11th of June. The clergy and officers of St. Paul's Church also feel greatly indebted to Mr Edwin Jones for his great generosity.

HUDSON MEMORIAL ENGLISH CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH.—We are pleased to be able to state that the above-named Church has secured the services of the Rev J. D. Jones, M.A., B.D., of Lincoln, to officiate during the month of August; the crowdedness of the congregation of last year, at each service, speaks highly of Mr Jones's abilities and popularity as a preacher. LLANDRILLO AND EIRIAS U. D. SCHOOL BOARD. — For the forthcoming election, the seven retiring members have been nominated, namely, the Revs John Edwards and John Griffiths and Messrs John Roberts, Evan Owen, Moses Williams, Robert Evans, and David O. Williams. There are also four new candidates,—The Revs John Gorell Haworth and Henry Thomas Cousins, Dr William Montague Venables-Williams, and Mr George Bevan. AN ORGAN RECITAL AT ST. PAl'L'S.-An Organ- recital took place, at St Paul's Church, on Sunday evening, June 21st, Dr Montague Williams presi- ding at the organ. Bryan Warhurst's solo setting of Jesu, lover of my soul," was rendered by Mr R. Ll. Samuel. THE FORESHORE.—The Mole-hill on the fore- shore which was made into a mountain (or rather, a quarry), was simply a load of stones used in making the new Promenade, and, by the aid of the powerful steam-crane (which proves a source of attraction to visitors), these stones have been so rapidly put into position that the portion be- tween the station and the Subway is almost (and, by the end of the week), will be quite ready for use. The coping will be placed on the wall afterwards, as it has not arrived, being now on the way from Norway. If anything, rather than a detraction, these works are an attraction to visitors. THE NATIONAL EISTEDDFOD.—The National Eisteddfod is the topic just now in the Bay, many residents being seen walking along the street or the promenade, reading (not the evening papers, but) the Official Programme of the Eisteddfod. COLWYN BAY AND THE CLOSING OF THE PWLLYCROCHAN WOODS. The subjoined letter appeared in the Liverpool Daily Post of June 23rd :— SIR,-The question of the renting and purchase of the Pwllycrochan Woods is at the present time occupying the minds of the ratepayers of Colwyn Bay to such an extent, and seeing that you have given such prominence in your reports of the various informal meetings that have been held, I trust you will allow me to offer a few remarks on the question. I think it will be admitted by all that a very large majority, if not the whole, of the ratepayers are anxious to secure these Woods by renting them for twelve months, and afterwards purchase the only difference between them is the conditions upon which they can be obtained. The District Council, at their meeting on May 12th, decided to rent them on condition that the Estate Company would leave matters in the same position as they were before the ist of June—that is, that the fact of rental should not in any way interfere with the rights which some of the rate- payers believe they have of free access along the paths through the Woods. This the Company have declined, showing that they intend to take advantage of every technicality. I will first give a summary of some of the conditions of purchase, and I think when the ratepayers know them they will see that the Council acted wisely in refusing to rent the Woods unless this condition was agreed to. Clause 3 reserves to the vendors all mines and minerals, except stone and gravel, within and under the said Woods, also the right of making sewers through the Woods at three different points to take the sewage of those houses which may be built on the land above, the cost of these sewers to be paid by the ratepayers. It also reserves to the vendors the exclusive right of all waters flowing from their lands above, although the ratepayers have already paid a large amount for this concession. Clause 5 states that the abstract of title shall commence with an indenture dated December 30th, 1865, and that the purchasers shall not require the production of, or investigate, or make any objection or requisition in respect of the prior title. Comment on this clause is unnecessary. It speaks for itself. Clause 6 deals with the acreage of the property, and says no error, misstatement or misdescription shall annul the sale, nor shall any compensation be allowed in respect thereof. Clause 7 states the time and place where objections and requisitions in respect to the title 1 may be sent to, and that if the vendors are unable or unwilling to remove or comply with such they (the vendors) may annul the sale. 1 Clause 9 provides that the ratepayers shall fence the whole of the property, make footpaths, provide < a 1', p six gates and entrances abutting on the lands of I the vendors, and keep the whole in repair for ever. ] It also provides that the ratepayers shall construct I three main sewers through the Woods, also a main sewer along the north side of the property, and in the event of their not doing so the vendors may at I once do so and charge the ratepayers with the whole of the expense. It further provides that a f roadway is to be made at the ratepayers' expense t on the easterly side to meet the Penybryn-road, I such roadway and footpaths to be drained, J sewered, kerbed, channelled, &c., and kept in repair for ever. £ It will be seen from the above that we shall c have to forego our present rights of the water t s that we shall have to construct about two miles of main sewers that we shall have to fence the whole, make entrances and footpaths, and a carriage road, to enhance the value of the building land above, which the Company have to sell, in addition to paying for the Woods the sum of £ 8,000, which is considerably above their market value. The whole cost of the scheme when complete, and taking into consideration the capitalising of the wear and tear, also cost of keepers, would be little short of ^15,000. Provid- ing that the Woods could have been had for the sum of ^8,000 without any further liability bevond keeping them in repair, they would have been the property of the town long before this, but considering the enormous cost these conditions would entail, it is a question whether the putting into effect of the Land Clauses Act would not be a saving to the ratepayers of some thousands, and it is for this reason that the Council decline to rent the Woods unless the Company will agree to leave things as they were before June 1st, as the rights which we claim, and of which there is abundant evidence, would very materially reduce the cost of the Woods. In conclusion, I would ask the ratepayers to consider this matter calmly. We are all anxious to secure the Woods, but some of us demur to improve other people's property at the expense of the ratepayers.—Yours, &c., THOMAS PARRY, Chairman of the Urban Council of Colwvn Bav and Colwvn. Llys Aled, Colwyn Bay, June 18th, 1896. The above letter also appeared in the Liverpool Mercury, and has elicited the two following letters, addressed to us and the District Counci Chairman respectively :— Sir,—The Chairman of the District Council, in his letter to your contemporary, the Liverpool Mercury of the 22nd inst., has given such a very one-sided and exaggerated account of the condi- tions of sale of the above Woods, that I trust you will allow me a short space in your columns' to compare his statements with the facts of the case. The Chairman states that Clause 3 reserves to the vendors all mines and minerals except stone and gravel, but does not add that the Company covenants "not to work the said minerals or allow anyone else to work them. He also states that we must construct about two miles of sewers. Anyone measuring the plan will discover that the three proposed sewers (when made and connected into our present system) will not exceed 1,000 yards in length. He also states that we have paid a large sum for the water rights the Company now reserve for themselves. If this statement is true, I shall be glad if our Chairman will explain why he agreed to pay the Company £30 a year for this water during the existence of the late Board, and why Mr Porter has never been charged for it all the years he has been using it. The fact is, we have never possessed this particular piece of water, and, if we have, the clause cannot reserve to the Company rights that do not belong to them. Clause .5, he states, is so bad that comment is needless, but it covenants that our title shall be "an indenture dated the 30th day of December, 1865, being a conveyance of the said Woods' etc., to John Pender." This is the conveyance from Lady Erskine, and is the first conveyance in existence, and is, I believe, the wonderful docu- mentary evidence vaguely hinted at by Mr Blud, in which all the rights and privileges which Lady Erskine is supposed to have reserved for the pub- lic, is to be found, and the very document by which he expects to wrest the Woods from the Company for nothing. The conditions allow our solicitors and Mr Blud and all others concerned ten days in which to digest its contents, and, when that has been done, another of Mr Blud's fancy bubbles will have burst. There is no other title to be had, it was good enough for Sir John Pender and the Estate Company, and also for our Chairman, who has bought and sold again with no other. He has summarised Clause 6 in such a way that it leads one to believe that we shall have to pay for 40 acres if there are not 40 acres in the lot, but the clause simply provides that if, after measuring it up, it is found there are not 40 acres we cannot proceed against the Company for damages for breach of contract it does not mean that we shall pay for more than we get. Clause 9, he states, provides that we shall fence the ivhole of the property this, again, is not the fact. The clause reads Within six months from the execution of the conveyance, to fence in so much and such parts as are n'ot already fenced in from the adjoining lands of the vendors with good and sufficiently strong post and wire fenc- ing." He also states that this clause provides that we are to make a main sewer along the north side or the old highway, but the condition reads To connect such sewers (that is, the three pro- posed sewers) with the drains and sewers now existing or hereafter to be made on the north side of such Woods." The new roadway mentioned in the conditions which looks so long and expensive in Mr Parry's letter, with its drains, sewers, curbs, channels, etc., and to be kept in repair for ever, is actually 80 yards long, and will cost, at the outside, £ 110. The six wicket gates will cost twenty-five shil- lings each, and to repair them for ever a similar sum every 20 years. The 250 yards of wire fenc- ing is not worth mentioning, and I would have no hesitation in undertaking to carry out every con- dition imposed by the Company as to roadmaking, sewers, fencing, drains, curbs, channels, etc., etc., to their satisfaction, for the sum of CSoo. I would also point out, Mr Editor, that this is a draft agreement, which may, if we approach the vendors in a business like manner, be considerably altered to our advantage, but our friends who oppose the early pur- chase of the Woods think that the Land Clauses Act would give them far better conditions. I only wish it were possible, without doing infinite harm to ourselves, to allow them to put it in force not only would the valuation be higher, but every condition proposed would probably be accepted by the arbitrator as fair and reasonable. Mr William Davies said, in our meeting on Tuesday, in a moment of candour, that the Woods in some places was not worth more than one shilling a yard. Well, as the Company are only asking £ 200 an acre, or about tod. a yard, I don't see what advantage he can expect by arbitration. How our Chairman has arrived at his estimate of £ 15,000 as the cost of the scheme, is a great mystery to me and many beside, but I fear, Mr Editor, he has again suffered from one of those bad dreams he confesses to have sometimes, and which you so aptly called a nightmare. The last clause of all, provides that "The purchase is subject to the consent of the Local Government Board being obtained thereto, etc., and if such a consent shall not be obtained, then this agreement shall be void and of no effect." Most of us know how particular the Government Inspectors are that everything is in order before they agree to advance us the money required, and this clause alone should give the ratepayer every confidence that no agreement will or can be concluded in which their interests are not strictly guarded.
