THE JNTY COUNCIL ELECTION PRISING RESULTS AT RHYL. fight than that of Saturday last as IU' i Test Ward of Rhyl is concerned was ,BT" Jr it since the County Council has een ost;i shed, and the figures will show that very a ble vote was polled. The weather wftn fort1 itely favourable, and there was no ers. Although the poll opened as it o'clock there was a steady stream day. Mr F. J. Gamlin and Mr !,i w Williams entered upon the contest h wÜ i determination to win, and both can- tidite nad as many workers as they re- .1n:rpd, tlunteers were forthcoming in such r;u>ei-s at plainly told that the election be:> fought with an enthusiasm seldom • ficnes« i n local contests. The whole of • :-r' ation of the Liberal Club was ;o play, and the canvassing which n on Saturday morning told that as a y th. Liberals of Rhyl were determined t. -.et-ure- i e return of their candidate. Ladies d m 11 a gentlemen devoted the whole of the < to t:, work, and every voter that could :'i brougto the poll either in a carriage or on loot Wr\ iaken to the booth. The Liberal ■iciK :iven an extra turn where required, nd by tl;. time the evening arrived Mr Elwy W;'liams mpporters felt confident that they :¡ i the seat. Mr F. J. Gamlin was y at polling booth, and from the very fr he f confident that he would be returned, relying II )n the promises he had received. The eiif"t, iasm displayed on the part of his r-uppcrtt was sufficient in itself to inspire )n his part, but he did not relax until within a quarter of an hour :lock he was informed that there •vp.ro i. r ,re voters who could be brought to ,.hL, poii The way the election had :1 been ''irti^hfc w. most complete, and the result shows ;»ow Mi ramlin and his helpers had worked, 3nth had several carriages bringing up ;.o tioot* T >. Mr A. Rowlands, (Town Clerk) .etiid as 'esiding Officer in the West Ward \n i Mr t Bayliss was poll clerk. Mr J. H. iSiii:3 Mr F. J. Gamlin's election agent at hf119 flour ig, and Mr J. W.

It was rut exrx. ^ed that the poll would have been oohrcd at least 9 o'clock, as the counting lid not o mmence until 8-15, the number of aparg i ied being 448. At a quarter to •ne i unting had been completed, and in he ires ice of a rather sparse crowd the .A e announced as follows :— "lr J. Gamlin 260 Elwy Williams 186 Majority 74 The ers which went up for Mr Gamlin ioon i the figures were announced were i i--arty aloud, and it was some little time boi<.>rt' th Town Clerk could make the official nnno.incc ent that Mr Gamlin had been leturuod County Councillor for the West Vird of i hyl.

Without their as- aigt;v'•« he could not have been returned. He desired to say that he did not claim t lui victory as a party one, as he had tough' j: along the line as an Independent candidate, and his first act on the County Council v )uld be to vote for Mr Elwy Williams l; 3 an alderman (applause). He (the 3pe:.kor, romised \e would do his best for the County general and for Rhyl in particular wie was returned, and he hoped that he. )e able to give satisfaction to those vfbo :18.( sent him to the County Council. • app- • Mi V. Elwy Williams seconded the vote of thaw*-a. d said he had been defeated, but not A as he had been deceived by those .lw promised to support him. Had he reeerad. he votes of those who had pledged theiasel'y-j to support him he would have b'Hsn it e top of the poll. Nine years ago h Ind (dered the County Council determined tv do his duty as a County Councillor, and as far 3 1 y in his power he had done so (ap- i. The electors of the West Ward had, how•:v*>r. discharged him, and he accepted their .ieo'iS'.fiii. He thanked those who had worked uii his behalf (applause). Mr hamlin was afterwards carried shoulder- id the Town Hall, and the greatest rrtr :n prevailed among his supporters. In the South Ward. oiling was rather slow throughout th1? iay* Mr Llewelyn Jones had a splendid of orkera, but they did not hang about the g >m Exchange where the voting was going on. Ti' y were to be found in Yale-road, in the sistriet, and in all other parts of the Ward. The Liberal Club organization had ,%iQo heel brought into play on behalf of this and plenty of good, solid, quiet vv\ rL ws" done on his behalf. Mr Llewelyn 'i"oT) • s wrj present throughout the day and felt Ieni of success from the very first. Mr J S. Graehhalgh also had a good body of ivjrker» but they lacked the organization of t.h. othe- side. Outside his Committee room "se hAd banner displayed asking that the •■working nen should 44 vote for Mr Greenhalgh "poi Tuor work for Rhyl men." The candidate 't;ore(' tard, and like the defeated candidate to u-1.. er ward he had received a large num- ber )mises which were not fulfilled. At I p-ocession of Mr Greenhalgh's workmen mm from his works to the Town Hall. Mr -7n Williams was the Presiding Officer ■n tr lling booth, andMrCaradoc Williams, acted polling clerk. Mr Jos. Williams' (Cr. wi). election agent for Mr R. Llewelyn Jon.fr; i it Mr Greenhalgh acted on his own r)('! iroughout. At a quarter to nine a iar. wd of persons had assembled outside th," Ti Exchange, and at the time the Pre- siding Officer mounted the balcony to announce t Iw figures, Mr Gamlin's supporteas arrived, carvyinsc that gentleman from the West Ward ^oiling nooth. It was with great difficulty t .at Mr Mostyn Williams was able to make himself I-eard, but when he announced that Mr i" II. Jones had been elected the Liberal Olufc ites cheered and cheered again. In fact there w.n scarcely any stopping of them, and fjw or those assembled heard the actual figures, wi :o" f ire as follows :— jk R. Llewelyn Jones 266 Mr J. S; Greenhalgh 125 Majority 141 "1 .Jewelyn Jones briefly proposed a vote 0f tlt K:3 to the Presiding Officer, and thanked the cfor once again returning him by SUch" h indsome majority (applause). M S. Greenhalgh seconded, and said he wa. id to say that he felt disappointed at th. n. t, as he had been led to believe by the p> >h she had received that he would have 1m.; od substantial majority. He had been i £ ii< defeated, and by the very people who pi nised him support. It was a defeat nob un1;" for himself, but for the working men and :tory for race, party, creed and politicss' mid feat' for enterprise. It was the success of j wire-pullers, and rhe defeat of inde- PeL.it;r, ,-y. Mr l. Ll. Jones then addressed the assembly at soiue length, although in consequence of ♦:iv-» rs and noise made by his partisans it ;as ost impossible to hear what was said. lie <-r sssed regret that Mr Greenhalgh should ken so bitterly, as he had fought the e1el ¡:. 'j fairly. He promised the electors that j,o -vouid always endeavour to faithfully serve th«.l 'd he could say that during the many ii had attended the meetings of the St. s,p:; "oard of Guardians he had endeavoured to represent the people, and he had also tried to do what was right on the County Council (applause). As soon as Mr R. Llewelyn Jones came down from the balcony he was carried shoulder- high at the head of a procession to the Liberal Club, from the window of which he again ad- dressed the electors. He said he considered it an insult to the working men of Rhyl that they should have been marched in procession from their work to the polling booth that day. He did not ask a single working man employed at his works to either canvass or vote for him, much less to walk in procession, although, no doubt, he could have had as large a procession as Mr Greenhalgh had had that day. It was all very well for people to say that they gave men work for the love of doing so. He asked the working men of the town not to believe such a thing. Unless a master was able to make a little proffit on the labour of those he employed he would not be able to give them work. While Mr Llewelyn Jones was speaking Mr Charles Jones arrived from Rhuddlan, and announced the result of the election in that place. He also briefly addressed those assem- bled, and was followed by Mr Whitley and Mr W. Elwy Williams.

ST. ASAPH PETTY SESSIONS. MONDAY—Before Major Birch (in the chair), fcol Howard, Dr Fasterby, Mr Peter Roberts, and Mr Robt Morris. The Bench Equally Divided. Mr Chas Bell applied for an occasional licence for Mr T E Roach, Mariners' Arms, Rhuddlan, on the occasion of a ploughing match at Canol y dref on the 10th inst. Mr Bell explained that it had been arranged by the Rhuddlan and Newmarket Ploughing Association, to hold a meeting of the champion ploughers. Major Birch said he was interested in the Mariners' Arms, and so would not sit in the case. Dr Easterby and Col Howard said they were in favour of granting the application. Mr Robt Morris said he would not vote for granting the application, as he considered that the field was close to Rhuddlan, and that the licence was not necessary. Mr Peter Roberts also objected to the granting ef the licence. Dr Easterby asked whether it was not a fact that the application could have been made to one magistrate, who had power to grant it. The Magistrates' Clerk replied that that was so, but there was an objection throughout the country to individual magistrates granting licences. Mr Bell said he could easily have obtained a licence, but Mr Roach thought that it would be more honourable to come before the Bench. The Chairman said the Bench were equally divided, and that Mr Bell could take what course he liked. Mr Bell said he did not like to go behind the Bench, but he did not see any reason why Major Birch should not vote. Major Birch said he had fully made up his mind that he would not vote on any matter in which he was interested in the house. He was deter- mined to be neutral, and so would not place himself in an invidious position. Col Howard said he was prepared to vote for the licence being granted, as he found that the Bench were always ready to grant a licence when sports were held in connection with the Denbigh- shire Hussars. The Bench retired,'and after a brief consultation, Col Howard announced that the magistrates were unable to agree, and therefore the application would lapse. After the Wake. Michael Wynne, Ford-square, St Asaph, was charged by P.S. Pearson with being drunk and disorderly on Sunday, February 6th. Mr Jos Lloyd appeared for the defendant, who pleaded guilty. P.S. Pearson said the defendant was very drunk and disorderly at 9-20 p.m on the 6th ult., in High-street. Defendant was so drunk that his brother had to take him home. Dr Easterby asked if the defendant had not been a teetotaller for a long time. P.S. Pearson said he had been a teetotaller for eight years. Mr Jos Lloyd asked the Bench to forgive the defendant, as he had got drunk at an Irish wake, where he (Mr Lloyd) believed it was usual to drown sorrow in drink. On his way home the defendant met a sober Irishman, and the fat was at once in the fire. Defendant had apologised to Pearson for the language he had used, and had promised to behave in the future. He hoped that the Bench would give the defendant a chance, as he had lost the reputation of eight years in one wake (laughter). The Chairman said the Bench had taken into consideration the fact that the defendant had been sober for 8 years, and they hoped that it would be many years before they saw him there again. He would be fined 2s 6d and 7s costs. Drunk. Emma Jones, Rogers-square, was charged with being drunk on the 12th nit. P.S. Pearson said the defendant was in the habit of getting drunk and creating a disturbance. He had warned her repeatedly, and had done all he possibly could to get her to reform. She had a hardworking husband and a large family. Defendant was fined 2s 6d and 7s costs, the Chairman remarking that the Bench would most probably send her to jail if she appeared before them again. Sunday Drinking at St. Asaph. Ellen Davies, licensee of the Kinmel Arms St Asaph, was charged by P.S. Pearson with supply. ing beer to Michael Wynne on Sunday, February 6th. Mr Jos Lloyd appeared for the defendant, and denied the charge. P.S. Pearson said he was standing by Messrs E P Jones, Son and Co's shop at St Asaph at 9^20 on the night of February 6th. Hearing footsteps in the yard adjoining he looked over the gate, and saw Michael Wynne receiving a bottle through the window of the Kinmel Arms. He stopped the man, and took the bottle away. Subsequently he saw the defendant's sister, who had charge of the Kinmel Arms, and she admitted that she had served the man, and that he had paid 3d for the drink. In reply to Mr Jos Lloyd,, the witness said that the defendant was away frcm home at the time. The man was drunk, and had told witness that he had had a bottle ot whiskey from a publichouse in Denbigh. Nothing was said about him having been at a wake. He knew that Wynne worked at Messrs E P Jones, Son and Co, and that that firm were agents for beer. Defendant was called, and said she had left home to go to Denbigh, leaving her sister in charge of the house, with instructions not to supply anyone except travellers. She knew nothing of what had occurred until she heard about it from outside on Monday. She did not receive ary money for the sale of the beer. Her sister had since left the house, and she had been unable to find her. Mr Jos Lloyd contended that the defendant could not be held liable for the act of her sister, as she had told her not to supply drink. He also said that the window would be closed up Defen- dant had an exceptionally good character The Chairman said the Bench considered the case proved, and fined the defendant the small sum of 10s and 8s costs. They would not endorse the licence, but they warned defendant that the window leading into the yard would have to be closed by the next licensing sessions.

I ST. ASAPH (Flint) RURAL DISTRICT I COUNCIL. THE HOURS OF THE ROADMEN ACAIN DISCUSSED. The monthly meeting of the St. Asaph (Flint) Rural District Council was held on Friday, Mr Robt Morris, Hendre, occupying the chair. An Erroneous Report as an Election Cry. On the reading of the minutes, Mr W Conwy Bell said he desired to refer to a personal matter, on behalf of Mr Jno Williams, Pydew. At the last meeting of the Council a discussion took place with regard to the hours worked by the roadmen, and Mr Jno Williams observed that he had work- men employed on his farm, who started at 6 o'clock in the morning. In all the local papers except one the hour was correctly stated, but in the" Rhyl Record and Advertiser it was given as 4 o'clock. In consequence of that, and what had been said subsequently, Mr Williams had suffered a great deal of inconvenience. It was all the more noticeable as it happened at a very unfortunate time, and he hoped that the gentlemen connected with che Press would be more careful in the future. That mistake of two hours had been made an election cry, and in bringing the matter before the Council he did not do so out of any illfeeling, but in order to have the matter put right. He was assured that it was a misprint, and that it would be corrected next week. Mr E Morgan asked why the statement had not been withdrawn. M r J no Roberts replied that it was too late now, and added that Mr Williams had suffered in conse- quence of the statement being made at an election time. Mr Conwy Bell said he was quite prepared to take the consequences now. Mr Jno Williams said he wished it cleared up before the next election came round. The Drainage of Brynhyfryd, Meliden. It was reported that a committee had inspected Brynhyfryd, Melideu, with the object of settling the drainage question. The owners of property had offered certain terms, which the Council had decided to accept. The Water Supply at St. Asaph. A letter was read from the Rhyl Urban District Council stating that they jwould be prepared to lay the necessary mains in the lower end of St. Asaph if the Council would enforce the taking of the water or be responsible for the water rates. It was ultimately resolved that the Clerk should write to the Rhyl Council and intimate that the Council would urge the owners to see that the houses are properly supplied. With regard to the supply to Rhuddlan, it was stated that the arrangments is regard to that were now complete. The Opposition to the London and North Western Railway Company. The Clerk reported that the Council in conjuction with the Flintshire County Council, had lodged a petition in opposition to the Bill of the London and North-Western Railway Company. Another Application for a Reduction of Hours by the Roadmen. The Chairman said the next business was an application from the roadmen to leave off at 5-30 each day instead of six o'clock. Sir W Grenville Williams I thought that was settled at the last meeting. The Clerk Another petition has been received since. Sir Wm Grenville Williams said he did not think that the roadmen had anything to complain of. Workmen employed on farms had far longer hours. He proposed that they turn off the men, and employ men willing to work the same number of hours as on neighbouring farms. The Chairman Is there any seconder to that ? Sir W Grenville Williams (to Mr Jno Williams): You second it. Mr John Williams Oh, no, sir. Mrs Rawlins thought that the case of the road- men was very different to that of farm labourers. They could give farm labourers a job indoors in wet or inclement weather. She had had occasion to pass along the roads at 7-30 and 8 o'clock in the morning during the past wet weather and felt quite sorry for the roadmen who were exposed to the full severity of the weather with nothing to pro- tect them. The roadmen had nowhere even to go and take their meals, and were obliged to take them cutside. Farm labourers on the other hand seemed to be always indoors eating. She often wondered how many meals a day they had (laugh- ter). She proposed that they grant the applica- tion of the men for the reduction of half-an-hour which they asked for. Miss Bennett seconded. Mr Conwy Bell said he should like to ask a question which had been put to him several times last week, viz, were the men supposed to be at their work at 7 o'clock in the morning, or wss that the hour at which they were expected to leave their houses. He was quite agreeable to the men being allowed to leave their houses at 7 o'clock in the morning, and also that they should return there by six o'clock at night. What he con- tended was that they should put all the men on the same footing, and he proposed that they be allowed to leave home at 7 o'clock in the morning and that the time of leaving off work should be so arranged in each case to enable the men to reach home by six o'clock in the evening. Mrs Rawlins said she would withdraw her pro- position in favour of that proposed by Mr Bell. Mr John Roberts There is some reason in Mr Conwy Bell's proposition. But these ladies seem to know more about workmen than Mr Conwy Bell and others who employ them (laughter). Mr Conwy Bell's proposition was unanimously agreed to. C,
Compensations. I know not what to-morrow brings, But close my eyes at set of sun, And pray the labour of to-day Was "just the best that I have done." I feel the throbbing in the air, Of myriad mingled wishes striving To shape themselves in actions fair, And make my life more worth the living. I know the misery that lurks In hidden nooks, in dusky corners, I hate the lazy man who shirks His duties, and I hate the scorners Of honest poverty, the fools Who never think of a to-morrow," But live their lives by narrow rules, And dread the very name of sorrow. I know that little joy belongs To those who labour late and early, That to their humble homes they cling, And love their wives and children dearly. I've seen the good that hidden lies Beneath a coat all torn and tatter'd, And marked the brave look in the eyes Of those whose every hope lay shatter'd. I've seen a hero, on the kerb, Keep down and master his just passion, And know that Charity's white robe Is worn by some who heed not fashion. I know that gold will not buy health Nor happiness, ror even glory, That good is better done by stealth, That virtue-that's another story. And, well, I feel that each one has, In spitelof fate, some compensations, And each must dree his own lone weird," Whate'er his rank, whate'er his station. And so I ask, at close of day, Oh, Father, give us all the power To keep our footsteps in Thy way, Inflight or shade, in sun or shower. Teach us to help our brother men, All who are by misfortune stranded, And when life's stormy voyage is o'er Within Thy haven let us be landed. Thy ways are wide, men's ways are vain And narrow—seeing not Thy road, Nor knowing that all toil and pain Are but the steps that lead to God." MARIANNE LESTER.

RHYL PETTY SESSIONS. TUESDAY.—Befere Messrs S. Perks (in the chair), J. Y. Strachan, W. J. P. Storey, T. Morgan Owen, Jno. Foulkes, and Jos. A. Williams. Licensing Business. Mr Gamlin said he had an application to make to the Bench on behalf Mr J H Ellis, who was the owner of No. 12 Water-street, which was a licensed house. That gentleman was also owner of No. 13 and 14 Water-street, and between the two blocks of buildings Mr J H Ellis owned a vacant piece of land upon which he was anxious to make additions to his premises, as a retail department. Although it was not necessary for Mr Ellis to come before the Bench in that matter, that gentleman thought it better to tell the magistrates what he intended doing, as at the annual licensing sessions it was the duty of the justices to enquire whether the premises they were licensing were identically the same as originally licensed. The Chairman said that if Mr J H Ellis did anything without coming before the Bench with his plans it would be at his own peril, but what Mr Gamlin now appeared to ask for was the tacit consent of the justices to the alterationa. Mr Gamlin replied that that was so. After an examination of the plans, the Chair- man said the Bench were advised that the applica- tion was an irregular one, and therefore they could do nothing with it. Mr Gamlin said he hoped that the Bench would realise the position taken by Mr Ellis, who was most anxious at all times to do what was right, and to meet the views of the Bench. In Liverpool a committee of the Licensing Justices were regularly deputed to examine plans, but Rhyl had not yet arrived at that stage. The Chairman We should be disposed to do something, but under the circumstances we cannot move now. Mr Bromley applied for, and was granted, a transfer of the license of the Crescent Hotel from Mr Eastham to Mr Warburton; and of the Old Town Hall Stores from Mr Smith to Mr J. L. Mayger. The licence of the George Hotel was also tem- porarily transferred from Mr Geo. Hay to Mr Hall of Liverpool. Miss Matthews, Costigan's Refreshment Rooms, was granted an hour's extension on St. Patrick's Day on the occasion of the annual dinner. This was all the business before the court.
District Council Election-The Housing of the Working Classes Act. TO THE EDITOR OF THE RHYL JOURNAL. DEAR SIR,- As it is only three weeks before the District Council Election takes place, I wish to wrge the working-men, and those taking an interest in their welfare, not to promise their votes to anyone who will not support the above Act. The question is now referred to Committee with in- structions to consider a scheme and report at the meeting next Monday. There is no doubt there will be considerable opposition to the adoption of the Act, and it is most desirable it should be made a test question at the coming election. It is certainly the most pressing question, and while not costing the town anything for some years, will afterwards be a source of revenue. I hope candidates will pledge themselves (considering the high rates prevailing) not to vote for the spending of more money than is really necessary. Some improvements, desirable but not necessary, may wait for a little while.—Yours truly, 8 Beechwood Road, EDWARD JONES. March 8, 1898.
The Nonconformists of Wrexham have failed to maintain the British School. The Vicar and Arch- deacon offered to build a new school for 800 children, needed owing to the condemnation of the British school by the Education Department. They had promise of site and several hundred pounds, and they would have saved the rates a sum of £ 6,000, which will now have to be provided from that source. We hear much of the large contribution of Dissenters in Wales, and these are all to their credit, but they are often recorded as a triumph of the voluntary principle, and to be contrasted with the "State Church" which gets so much and gives w little. But, according to the latest official returns, the voluntary :contributions for Church work in the four dioceses during last year were as 'ollows:—Bangor, 935,907 lis. Id.; Llandaff, e89,457 4s.;i0d.; St. Asaph, £ 53,215 4s. lid. St. David's, £ 57,133 18s. 3d., or a total for the four )f £ 235,713 19s. Id.

FOOTBALL NOTES. The Rhos Eagle Wanderers played the Bangor Reserves in the semi-final of the Welsh Junior Cup at,' Victoria Park on Saturday, but what I transpired during the progress of the game was I certainly not to the credit of the visiting specta- tors who appeared to fall out amongst themselves as well as with the local football enthusiasts. Many of those who witnessed the game complain of the rough usage they received, and it will be a long time ere they entertain any great anxiety to mix with a Rhos Eagle crowd again. The weather was beatifully fine, and the com- pany which assembled large. Mr Cotton, Rhos- tyllen, was the referee. The game opened very fast, and continued a hard fought contest to the end. Rhos started to press from the first, but Bangor put on a good defence, their goal-keeper clearing in splendid style. The first point secured was for Rhos after about 25 minutes' play, and resulted from a penalty. Bangor followed shortly afterwards with a goal. The score at half-time stood-Rhos Eagle 1, Bangor 1. In the second half Rhos played downhill, and were not long before securing a second goal. After several smart attempts by both sides, Rhos scored their third goal. Bangor for some time being penned in their own goal eventuallybroke away, and with a neat run scoied their second point. The game ended in a win for Rhos by 3 goals to Bangor's 2. The defeat of the League Team of the Town Club at Bangor by 4 goals to 1 came as a surprise and disappointment, especially so after the exhibition the victors gave of football at Rhyl on the previous Saturday. It was never expected for a moment that Bangor would have obtained such a victory over the club, but there are often great surprises in football matches. Rhyl seems to have been unlucky on Saturday. Perhaps the County Council election had something to do with it. The Amateurs went to Llandudno with a weak team, and in addition to being thus handi- capped they lost the assistance of two players before the end of the match, so that they were defeated by 12 goals 1. It could not have been football in the sense that we know it in Rhyl, but the unfortunate part is that both games were League fixtures, and Llandudno gets a splendid lift in the goal average, while Bangor can regard their victory as a step neacpr the medals. There will be an interesting game at Rhyl on Saturday when the return match between the Amateurs and the Town Club takes place on the Belle Vue Grounds. Both clubs will put good teams on the field, and I hope that the match will be of a pleasant character. There is no reason why it should not be well fought, and at the same time be played in a manner creditable to the town North Wales Coast League.

The new line from Mold to Wrexham will be opened for passenger traffiic early in April. By an extension of the existing Mold Coed Talon branch as far as Wrexham, the new route will gite a through connection between such towns as Denbigh Mold and Wrexham. Eight trains each way will probably be run for a start. An inquiry on behalf of the Local Government Board was held at Llandudno on Thursday in reference to the District Council's application for permission to borrow £8,634 for works of water supply, £3,583 for gasworks extension, EI.394 for the purchase of land on which to erect workmen's dwellings. It was stated that the dwellings already erected had let remarkable well, 100 application having been received for 19 cottageB.
