Ladies and Gentlemen, Once again I have the honour to solicit the renewed expression of your confidence in me as one of your representatives on the above-named Board, of which for the expiring- triennial term I have served as Chairman. The establishment of the night school at Colwyn, and of the new Infant and Higher Grade Schools at Colwyn Bay (the latter being-truly described as "an Inter- mediate School under another name"), coupled with the maintenance of a high standard of efficiency and economy in all the Schools under the Board's management, proves that we as a Board have been alive to the growing educational requirements of the District and have successfully grappled with the various problems presented through the increase of population. In public life I believe in working, to the best of my ability, for the true interests of the Ratepayers in general, and I have faith that you, remembering my long experience of the School Board work, will record for me a fair share of your votes next Saturday, July 4th, without considering it desirable for me to unnecessarily consume your time by interviewing you individually. I have the honour to be, Ladies and Gentlemen, Your Obedient Servant, JOHN ROBERTS. Fern Bank, Colwyn Bay, July ist, 1896. THE LLANDUDNO VICTORIA PALACE COMPANY LIMITED. (RIVIERE'S CONCERT HALL).

The Rev. J. D. Jones and the American Congregational Pilgrims. The Rev J D Jones (of Lincoln) made himself such a favourite with so many of the Colwyn Bay people whilst he occupied the pulpit of the Hudson Memorial English Congregational Church last August, and his visit there next August is antici- pated with eagerness. A report, therefore, of the welcome he extended to the American Congrega- tional Pilgrims on their visit to Lincoln on June 27th, will be read in Colwyn Bay with more than ordinary interest: "The American Congregational Pilgrims ar- rived at Lincoln from Boston about five o'clock on Saturday afternoon An interested crowd awaited the arrival, and the guests were received by the Rev J D Jones, President of the Lincoln Free Church Council, and escorted to the White Hart Hotel, their head-quarters until June 30th. In the evening there was a reception in the County Assembly Rooms. The American guests, num- bering 46, and the citizens who had accepted invitations, were received by the Rev J D and Mrs Jones, the large company present including the leading Nonconformists of the city. "Speaking in the course of the proceedings, the Rev J D Jones extended a hearty welcome to the city. England, he said, 300 years ago cast the reverend fathers out; England to-day had tried to make amends by receiving the children with open arms. He had been unfeignedly thankful for the courtesy extended to them by their brethren of the Established Church. He had read with pleasure how they had been re- ceived by Bishops, Deans, and other dignitaries of the Church, and he ventured to say that the Cathedral dignitaries of Lincoln would not be behind. He might publicly say how eager the Sub-Dean of Lincoln was to make the visit to Lincoln as pleasant as that to any other town; the only wonder was that that courtesy, kindness, and goodwill, displayed by the ancient historical Church to the descendants of Pilgrims beyond the seas could not also be displayed to the des- cendants who had stayed at home. As to the old Pilgrim Fathers, he believed that men of every party, sect, and creed to-day looked upon them with the highest honour. It would not do for a loyal Welshman to say Lincolnshire was the most romantic part of the kingdom, but there was no part so bound up with the religious history of the country as that county. It had witnessed the birth of two great religious movements, those connected with John Welsey and the Pilgrim Fathers. They had now come to the home of the Pilgrims, and his hope was that they might be imbubed with the same undaunted spirit that ani- mated the men who left Scrooby and sailed with the "Mayflower." The better acquainted they became with each other the less danger would there be of misunderstanding between the two countries. [Applause.] The Rev A E Dunning, D D, Boston, Mass, in reply, made further allusion to the brotherly regard displayed towards them by Churchmen as well as Nonconformists and, taking the modern roadways round the old gates of Lincoln city as an illustration of what he would like to see in the religious life and work of the future, he gave voice to the hope that those things which now seemed to be barriers between members of the Established Church and Nonconformists might be rendered only ornaments. Between American Christians and English he saw little difference they served the same Lord and promoted the same principles and they would fight the same battles. There could never be any victories won by England in the cause of righteousness and truth, but Christian America would win with her. Wrhere, he wanted to Know, were the ferocious men who wrote those terrible things about America and England a few months ago ? He and his fellow-countrymen had been through England, but had failed to find them, and they would go back to America with the conviction that the daughter could never be untrue to her mother. As Thomas Bailey Aldrich had written :— Some day at thy sore behest She at thy side shall hold the world at bay. [Loud applause] "The Rev Zadde Robinson presented an address to the American Congregational pilgrimage. It was presented in the name of the Free Churches of Lincoln, who desired to extend their respect- ful and affectionate welcome on the visit to that ancient and historic city. It continued:—We feel that in welcoming you to this county of ours, we are welcoming you back to your ancestral home, for Lincolnshire people never forget that their county is inseparably associated with the history of the Pilgrim Church. We claim the great John Robinson, the pastor of the Pilgrim Church, as our own, and the neighbouring town of Gainsborough boasts of having been for some time the Church's home. We are proud of the men, of the testimony they bore, of the work they did. Lincolnshire has given many great men to the world-to politics, the great Elizabethan statesman, Lord Burghley to science, Sir Isaac Newton to geographical discovery, Sir John Franklin to letters, Alfred Tennyson. But wTe count as its chief glory, that it gave to the world the two great religious leaders, John Robinson and John Wesley. All England is debtor to the men of the Pilgrim Church for their heroic wit- ness in behalf of a pure and Scriptural faith and freedom of conscience worship." Dr Dunning, in replying, expressed the hope that out of this experience there might grow some practical method by which the Churches of America, which were free, and the Free Churches of England, might speak with a united voice." A very pleasant musical entertainment was provided during the evening, and refreshments were also served. Towards the close of the pro- ceedings an address was presented to the Pilgrims by the members of the Free Church Council of Lincoln and district and the Mayor of Lincoln (Mr Edward Harrison) gave an official welcome to the visitors.'

C'J THE CLOSING OF THE WOODS. Sir,—Will you allow me to make a suggestion which I think will settle the WToods question at once, viz., that the Estate Company accept the tender of Mr Bevan to carry out every condi- tion imposed by them as to road-making, sewers, fencing, drains, curbs, channels, &c., &c., to their satisfaction, for the sum of ^,500." By adding this amount to the present purchase price, they would be able to offer the Woods to the Council free of ail conditions. The Council would then have a clear issue before them. As Mr Lockyer is so confident the condition can be carried out for this sum, I would further suggest that he could very materially help forward the negotiations by becoming surety to the Estate Company for Mr Bevan's due performance of the contract.—I am, sir, yours respectfully, Heathfield, Colwyn Bay, W. H. ROBERTS. June 29th, 1896.

THE PURCHASE OF THE WOODS QUESTION. SIR,-Permit me to say a word on this all- important question. It must now appear quite clear to the business ratepayers of Colwyn Bay that the Chairman and those Councillors in opposi- tion to an immediate settlement, are quite careless of what loss to trade will follow their policy. It has been clear to me what pressure privately and through the Press has been brought to bear upon them to demonstrate the one chance there still exists, namely, to bring the crisis to an issue now at tqe end of June, and immediately advertise the the opening of the Woods, and, if true, completion of the work on the foreshore at an early date. This has been well pressed upon these gentlemen, both privately and by two long and closely-filled petitions for purchase or immediate settlement, and, when I state that at last Tuesday's meeting it was cooly proposed that this meeting be post- poned a week, and that the Council then consider the Woods question in Committee on Tuesdav, July 7th, and report to a general meeting on Tuesday, July 14th, it will at once be seen that these obstructionists to the success of this Season don't intend to study the lodging-house interest nor yet trade generally, but simply to retard a settlement of this vital importance by every means in their power. It is now perfectly clear what value these Councillors place upon the success or failure of the only trade this place has to exist on. They know )without telling) that other places in June month are doing all they can to advertise the superior charms or advantages of their seaside resort through the Press and by handy books of information, and they are perfectly aware that the smallest report of anything wrong at a seaside place will at once decide people to try some other place this Season, and they know that this report of the closing of the Woods has appeared in newspapers all over the Kingdom, and that it has kept numbers away, and will inevitably continue to do so. They know all this, and can well see that, instead of any bad report just now in this month, an attractive advertisement of the special features of the Bay should be in great circulation, and yet they allow and positively foster the delay of this official correction to the defamatory reports, and intentionally take the only precious time there possibly is, this Season, to postpone any workable deliberations for two weeks longer, when it will be too late to influence the public. It is not too late now, and they know it. Com- ment on this unpr. cedented state of things having such vital results on the present and future reputation of this Bay, may, I apprehend, be spared. The opposition laugh at one, and evidently count a man a fool for expressing any concern for people who have but a limited capital and cannot hold out with a bad Season. All the arguments used by the opposition, against attach- ing so much importance to the Woods, fall to the ground when they are reminded that this seaside place has its two main attractions, the one closed and the other spoiled with public works and work- men. The richest watering place cannot afford to have bad reports about it during the commence- ment of the summer Season, and it remains to be seen whether this, the poorest financially of seaside places, will stand quietly and calmly by and witness this deliberate interference with the trade of the place. It calls for ratepayers to at once demand a poll and bring this burning and urgent questioh to an immediate head. To show that this is a matter for the ratepayers to immediately take up and act upon, I may here say that one prominent member, when twice called to the last Tuesday's meeting, sent word that he was going to the Eisteddfod and could not come, and the Chairman was not in attendance, and (I am told) was also at Llandudno, and the reverend gentle- man who was told he could not vote (being a shareholder of the Estate Company), stays away although he represents the ratepayers, and no one can possibly prevent him from voting on this question, which is of immediate and vital impor- tance to his supporters, and to disqualify his vote there is time after he and the Vicar of Llandrillo have by their two votes saved this town from the ignominy of a suicidal policy. After all that has gone by, and the present action taken of post- ponement of any definite decision for two weeks, it will be the ratepayers' own fault if serious loss results, which it inevitably will, unless they rise up and help themselves in this miserable and improvi- dent attack upon the success of the season. Sir, it is no good referring at any length to the neglect with which the Council has deliberately treated this important question, but I would, in closing, state that on the 1st of January this town was placarded with the Estate Company's notice after the Council had repeatedly neglected to face this question, the poster said, "The Woods will be permanently closed on the 1st of June," and yet we see that this wonderful Council have allowed the Woods to be closed, allowed the papers far and wide to report it, and contented themselves with having a total upset of engineering works on the beach in the summer, and vet have made no move to bring this matter to a "settlement nor contradict the pernicious statements in the papers. and this the 30th day of June, and July 14th the earliest time settled to consider it If this is not a case when the fortunes of the people in this Bay are dependent upon their own immediate actions in favour of a ballot, then there never will be one Colwyn Bay, PRO BONO PUBLICO.

COLWYN RAY SEASHORE SIR,-This fine stretch, at low water, of firm sand, is fast forming into lengths of hogs-back sandbanks, with various boggy, slimv hollows between, wherein have been allowed to collect the loose stones washed out by the retreating tides of rough weather. The proper place for the stores is the shingle strips at high water mark. Further, may I suggest that there be a sufficient number of openings for descent from the new Promenade to the beach ? and that steps be made from the curved wall of the present Subway Promenade ? The coping of the parapet wall should be reduced in height. It is now like a fortress, and forbids anyone but the tallest from looking over. Eighteen inches of walling, with a flat coping, upon which people could sit, would be most popular. The place, I presume, is intended for the pleasure of visitors, not to restrict their com- forts- There is no necessity whatever for such an absurdly high and thick protection from nothing at all. If the place afforded an easy outlook over the sands and the sea, it would be one of the most frequented lotin,-es,-i.e., if a line of seats of some kind were provided. At present, the arrangement practically commands us to keep moving, because there is no inducement to remain, although it is a rather commanding point of view. These suggestions may perhaps be enough at one time. Yours faithfully, June 27th, 1896. A VISITOR.
