Death of Mr J. S. Greenhalgh. We regret to announce the death of Mr Johnson Simpson Greenhalgh, of Rhyl and Rochdale, in both of which towns he took a great interest. He was for many years senior partner in the firm of Messrs Greenhalgh Brothers, woollen manufacturers, Rochdale, and till a few years ago he took an active part in the administration of the public affairs of Rhyl, being at one time chairman of the Board of Commissioners, to which body he had been repeatedly returned. His active participation in this town's affairs dated back some thirty-five years ago, when he became one of the active supporters of the Rhyl Winter Gardens from the commencement of the scheme. In that unfortunate cencern Mr Greenhalgh planked a good deal of money, and he was for a time one of the company's directors. He purchased some land in the vicinity, and in the course of time formed streets through it, and erected a number of houses of the better cla-s." A portion of the land he laid out as gardens. It was he also who put up that fine block of buildings in High Street opposite the Post 1 id Office, much of the stonework being splendid material which had been carted here from the demolished Kirtdnle jail, near Liverpool. He THE LATE MR J. 8. GREENHALGH. bought the Queen's Hotel, and re-modelled and re-furnished it; as well as land and buildings I adjoining, on which he and others of a syndi- cate erected the Queen's Palace and Arcade. He financed various businesses in the town, and lost money in most of them his great failure in that repect being in connection with the concern of Connah and Co, in which he esti- mated his loss at about £ 18,000. Though he could drive a close bargain at times, he was by no means what may be termed a good busi- ness man." Some of his building properties were as unremunerativc- as his business concerns. He was a man who lMet plenty of ideas, auct they were generally lofty ones. But he had no application for details. He did usaful work as a Town Commissioner, and often took an "independent stand on local affairs. He made great efforts to prevent the town's pur- chase of the antiquated concern of the old Gas Company, and argued much for the adoption of electricity as the local authority's illuminant. He was defeated, and a few years afterwards the authority went in for electric lighting in I competition to their own gas undertaking On one occasion Mr Greenhalgh contested the South Ward for the County Council, but was defeated. His opponent predeceased him. Indeed there has been great mortality among the candidates for County Council seats in this town since that body was created, Mr Greenhalgh had in his earlier days mixed much with men, travelled East and Weft, and was a few years ago elected a Fellow of the Geographical Society. He was brought up a Wesleyan Methodist, and one of the most beautiful features of his character was his great affection for his mother, her memory, and her maxims, which he was fond of quoting in his private conversations. His wife had pre- deceased him before Mr Greenhalgh settled down in Rhyl, and his only son remained in Rochdale, carrying on the flannel works. Since the recent dislocation, he (Mr R S Greenhalgh) has opened a new factory there. At the montlny meeting of the Rhyl to rban District Council, on Monday, the Chairman (Mr W J P Storey) referred in sympathetic terms to the death of Mr Greenhalgh. In him, he said, they recognised an old townsman and Councillor, who had done a great deal for the town. Deceased was at one time Chairman of the Council, and he (the speaker) was sure that the Council wished to place on record a sense of their regret at his death. They had not perhaps all seen eye to eye with Mr Greenhalgh in regard to all that he had done, but he had worked hard for the town's welfare, according to his light (hear, hear). He (the speaker) j moved a resolution expressing regret at Mr Greenhalgh's death. Mr J H Ellis seconded the motion, and it was agreed to, the members standing mean- while. The Inquest. This was held on Monday, at 5 Mere Street, before Mr F N Molesworth, County Coroner. The Coroner intimated that he had a letter from Dr Stanwell stating that Mr Greenhalgh had been in feeble I health for some time,suffering from chronic disease and a weak heart and debility. He (Dr Stanwell) had found distinct evidence that the cause of death was fracture of the base of the skull. The Coronur said that, with this lettor, the only matter to be certified was that the injury was received accidentally. f Robert Simpson Greenhalgh, woollen merchant, son o deceased, said his father had bcea in failing health for some time. He had not been out all day on Sunday' About 6-25 in the evening witness was entering his bed- room upstairs when his father came out of Irs, and he (witnes4) had just got into his room when lie heard his father go down one or two steps of the stairs, and then slip and fa'l. Witness at once went down, and found his father lying full lengtn at the bottom of the stairs. He was an his back and quite unconscious. He remained unconscious up to the time of his death, which occurred about a quarter-past 12 OD M:nday morning. His father seemed much weaker than usual on Sunday. He did not call Gut when be was falling. Witness got the doctors as soon as possible, and everything possible was done foc Iiis fatlier. lhe Coroner Has your father ever slipped before in coming downstairs:'—Once or twice, on tile last two or three bottom steps, he has nearly fallen. But he was always somewhat clumsy on his feet. He was insured for £ 2,000 with bonuses. He (witness) could only account for his father's death by his accidentally slipping on the stairs. The stairs were rather steep. This was all the evidence taken, and the Coroner said he thought it was sufficient to assure the jury that the fall was accidental, while Dr StanweTs letter showed the cause of death. The jury (of which the Rev A Harm was foreman) returned a verdict of Accidental death." Mr Creenhalgh's Career. The late Mr Greenhalgh's father was a farmer at Hall-de-hill, Summerseat, near Bury, and as a boy of about eight years of age deceased was working in a mill. Then, in his early "teens" he was employed by Mr James Simpson, woollen manufacturers, of Rochdale, his iousin,and by him he was sent to liis branch at Athlone, Ireland, to learn wool sorting. It was there Mr Green- haljjli picked up the technical knowledge which after- wards stood him in good stead when he was building up his flannel business in Rochdale. When about 21 years of age Mr Greenhalgh began buying and selling roller cloth and flannels, and he was soon afterwards joined by his brother, Mr James Greenhalgh. Their business, which was carried on in Baillie-streec, under the name and style of J 8 and J Greenhalgh, made good progress, and by the early seventies it was established on a very successful basis. The brothers continued in partnership until the fleath of Mr James Greenhalgh in 1900. Mr J S Greenhalgh remained proprietor of the business till quite recently, when it was sold to a Mr Garside. He took a leading part in th" development of Khyl, and it was at his suggestion that the Rhyl Marine Like was eventually mide, while ha was also the originator of the Rbyl Queen's Palace. Mr Greenhalgh, in 18G9, married Miss Har.vood, daughter of the late Robert Harwood, cotton spinner, of Hey wood. H:s wife died three years after the marriage, of which there wi re two children, one cf whom d'cd in infancy, while the other, Mr R S Greenhalgh, survives him and is in business as a woollen merchant in Devon-street. That Mr Greenhalgh's activities and public work in Rhyl were regarded with admintion and gratitude was made manifest at a public dinner and presentation to him by his employees in 1lè). On that occasion the chair was occupied by Mr J H Eliis, chairman of the Urban District Council, and besides Mr Greenhalgh's employees there were about fifty of the leading residents of Rhyl present. The address itself referred to Mr Greenhalgh's i; active advocacy of all movements calculated to elevate Rhyl to the rank of a first class watering place." It proceeded as follows:—"You have seen the dreary wa-te at Foryd converted into a beautiful Marine Lak^, Jargply through your instrumentality. Your untiring efforts to secure the adoption of electric lighting f tiie town aiid other need- ful improvemrllts go to prove your deep interest in the prosperity of the place. Your per.-onal enterprise and energy in building operations created a n-w era in the st.\ Ie and architecture of our buildings, which considerably enhanced the appearance of the town, and remains a lasting monument of your public spirited invastments." 1 Accompanying the addres; were a large portrait, a handsome antique oak writing desk, and a silver inkstand.—" Rochdale Times." Mr JohneQn Simpson Greenhalgh, a retired flannel merchant, of Mere Street, Rochdale, died early on Monday morning. His death, the result of an accident, caused a painful shosk to his son and daughter-in- law, with whom he live:i. They had hid tea together, and shortly afterwards the deceasetl was descend- ing the passage stairs aftjr visiting bis bedroom, when lie fell to the bottom. His son heard him fall, and going at once to his assistance found him lying in the passage. He was partly on his back with his head towards the street d. cr, and was unconscious. Drs Stanwell and Kerr were sent for, and the latter soon arrived. All that was was ,-)", for Mr Green- halgh, but his condition vits very sevioas—the base of the skull was apparently fractured—and he (lied shortly after midnight.—" Rocadale Observer." The Funeral. The interment took place on Wednesday afternoon in the family vault, Rochdale Cemetery. The first part of the service was he11 in Wesley Chapel, Castlemere Street, where deceased formerly worshipped and took an active part in the life of the church. As the body was taken to the communion table the orgmist beautifully j rendered 'Oh. rest in the Lord," and the Rev Adam Hann recited the opening sentences of the burial service. The favourite hymns of deceased, Give me the wings of taith t.) rise" and "Hock uf Ages," were sung, and as the body left the chapel the "Dead March in Saul" was feelingly rendered. The cortege to the Cemetery con- f sisted of—1st carrage, Mr and Mrs R S Greenhalgh (son and daughter-in-law), Mr and Mrs Leach, Rhyl (brother-in-law aud sister) 2nd, Mr and Mrs JDarlatm, Rhyl (sist-r-i.i-law and husband), Mr Samuel Leach, Rhyl (nephew), Mrs E Lloyd Jones, Manchester (sister-in-law) 3rd, Mr Wm Fletcher Whiiley, Mr F Geary.

Newmarket. The Light Railway Scheme. The inhabitants of the district will learn with much regret that the Railway Company have no intention of immediately carrying out their soheme of extending the Dyserth line to Newmarket. If anything it will intensify the indignation felt towards the busybodies who have been instru- mental in frustrating the railway company's plans, Death. Newmarket has lost a well known and much respected resident in the person of Mr Robert Jones, Marian, who passe:1 away in his prime on Tuesday. He was a useful member of the com- munity in various ways, and especially will he be missed by the Wesleyan connexion, Parish Council. A meeting in connection with the Parish Council was held on Tuesday, when there were present Messrs William Roberts (in the chair), E H Jones, Ed Wynne, Wm Jones, Wm Williams, John Jones, and Peter Ryles, with the Clerk (Mr John Roberts). The business transacted was of a routine character. Night School. The Newmarket Night School is an institution which has thriven for 1-1 years, and it still bids fair to accomplish much useful work. Arrange- ments are just now being made for the coming winter's work. The school will continue under the tuition of Mr John Jones, School House, with lrJohn Roberts, Mostyn Arms, as secretary, and Mr Edward Wynne as treasurer
Dyserth. Technical Classes. An encouraging start has been made with these classes, the subjects taken up being reading, writing, composition, arithmetic, elementary drawing, and science (teacher, Mr Joseph Thomas); shorthand and book-keeping (teacher, Mr G H Edwards). Mr Charles Thomas, Pendyffryn, the secretary, will be pleased to furnish any informa- tion respecting the classes.

Football. I Owing to the English Cup ties, the Combina- tion programme last Saturday embraced only three matches, in which Wrexham were victorious over Rhyl by 2 goals to 0, Wigan beat Crewe Alexandra 2-1, and Birkenhead beat Bangor 2-0. The meeting of Rhyl and Wrexham on the Belle Vue Athletic Grounds last Saturday resulted in a disappointing game from at Rhyl standpoint. Wrexham played a capital game and thoroughly deserved their 2-0 win, whereas Rhyl's performance was of a ragged nature. Freeman opened the score for the visitors in the first few minutes, this success following imme- diately upon a smart clearance by Coventry, who had not time to recover himself before the fatal shot. More alertness cn the part of the backs would certainly have prevented this goal. For a few rtiinutes afterwards the ball hovered about the Wrexham goal, but try as they would neither Rowland-Thomas nor Davies could get a success- ful pop. A questionable otrside ruling by the referee spoilt an excellent chance for Rhyl, and another attack on the Rhyl goal followed, Coventry having to fist out in the midst of a dangerous rush. Thanks to a lift by the left back, Rhyl again had a look in, and the Wrexham custodian was called upon to handle. The attack was not, however, of long duration, and for the remainder of the first half Wrexham had the best of matters, but had to be content with a 1-0 lead till the change of ends. Rhyl opened the second half in a more promising manner, and Rowland-Thomas was not long in trying his luck, while Tom Roberts also made a deserving attempt. The visiting defence was, however, all that could be desired, and thanks largely to the eflorts of the centre-half, who played a line game throughout, operations were transferred to the opposi'e end, when the visitors again scored a rather easy goal. The visitors kept up the pressure for a little white afterwards, but their efforts were neutralised bv some excel- lent work on the part of the Rhyl defence. Matthews initiated another attack on the Wrexham goal, and Tom Roberis worked hard for au opening, while his partner experienced hard lines with a flying shot. Again the visiting front rank asserted I themselves in a threatening manner, and Coventry had to clear two dangerous shots, besides which his charge had a lucky escape owing to the undue haste of a Wrexham left-winger, ^t length the Rhyl halves broke up the attack and another series of shots was made upon the Wjrexham goal, but nothing more encouraging than a corner ensued. Ac the other end again Coventry wa.s in evidence, and the visiting centre-forward missed a fine opening. The final attack was made by Rhyl, but nothing came of it, and the visitors won as already stated, thanks to a display, especially by the forwards, which Rhyl might profitably study, We should point out that Wrexham brought a very strong team, several of Jthe players having figured agiinst Rhyl in the English CUD tie at Wrexham, when, it wdi he remembered, Rhyl were vanquished by seven g mis to nil. Rhy), owing to injured plavers, had several changes in the ttain. The teams hoed up a follows, in charge of Referfe Rtifs-11, of C!iester-Wrexliam Fowler J Hughes and Dawsm; Lloyd, Evans and Hesketh Challinor, Fanning, Freeman, Gordon, and Shaw.

Linesman, T Robinson. ,;<- Next Saturday, October 20th, Rhyl Vies will meet Greenfield, in the 1st round for the Flintshire ChalIengl3 Cup, at Rhyl. Rhyl County School and Abergele County School teams met on the County School Ground, Rhyl, last Saturday. Rhyl were handicapped by the absence of three of their regular players. The homesters roae to the occasion, however, and easily vanquished the visiting team by the decisive score of 6—1. All the home players dis- played promising form, especially the captain, who accounted for three of the six goals scored. Con- cerning the visitors, a fairly good performance by the defence was the only redeeming feature in a palpably weak exhibition. They have yet to inflict a defeat upon the Rhyl School, and their long-promised supper on the occasion of their initial victory over their sturdy victors seems, on Saturday's form, as far distant as ever. -X- Rhuddlan Conservatives on Saturday lass paid a visit to Afonwen, where they encountered Afonwen in a "friendly match. The Conservatives proved victorious, scoring four goals to their opponents' two. This is very gratifying to a new club. To- morrow they entertain the Rhyl Harlequins in a friendly at Rhuddlan. The much-talked-of North Wales Wednesday League appears to have become an established fact. Mr H E Thomas, Abergele, has been appointed hon secretary. It is somewhat regret- table that the local half-holidays do not fall on Wednesdays, otherwise, I am sure, several local olubs would join this league. The Rhyl Combination team visit Tranmere Rovera on Saturday, the selected players being as follows :—Goal Coventry backs Vernon Jones, and J Whitelock; halves: W Williams, W Roberts, and W Matthews forwards, E E Davies, T A Davies, Shipton, Rowland-Thomas, and Tom Roberts.

Beech, Rhyl, Hon, Seel NOTES BY ALL BLACK." It is quite apparent that the Rhyl club are going through some very trying times just now, their inability to put their full strength in the field losing them two home matches in succession, not to mention their away engagements. I hope that a change for the better will soon be theirs. On Saturday last the club were decidedly unfortunate in being deprived of the services of their goalkeeper, in addition to both their fall backs. Both Blackburn and Vernon Jone3 were on the injured list, the results of the previous week's match, while White. lock had left the town and had not returned in time for the match. AXain, in addition to these, Shipton, the new centre forward, was unable to turn oat for business reasons. So that the team had once again to ba re- arranged. When I mention that the Rhyl club, in an honest endeavour to make things pay, are running the club on amateur lines, it will be readily understood how difficult it is to secure the services of substitutes, when- ever any difficultyjof this sort arises. I am certain, however, that if the club persevere, they will eventually overcome these difficulties, and success will then, no doubt, attend their efforts to provide the town of Rhyl with a good amateur club. Ernest Coventry, a brother of Chester's hte custodian, appeared between the sticks, while Sunny Evans, of the Guild, played at left full, T A Davies coming from half-back to right foil. W Williams, who a week ago made his debut in the Combination team, again appeared as right-half, while D Hughes reappeared as intide right, Rowland Thomas acting as pivot. Considering all these unfortunate, but necessary, changes in the team, I was not surprised to see them defeated at the hands, or rather feet, of Wrexham, who, throughout, were the vastly superior team. It may not be geneially known, but it is nevertheless the fact," that Wrexham have some thirty or so higbly-paid players to draw from for their two teams. So they have no difficulty in filling any vacancy that occurs through accidents. Furthermore, I was informed by a Wrexham club official on Saturday that their men turn out three times a-weck for good sound training. That is the secret of their success, the men being so well trained that they outlast untrained men in a hard and fast game Cannot I prevail on the Rhyl men to put in some train," ing, so that they can play until the final whistle goes ? To return to the game, Coventry was not over safe in goal, some cf his clearances being decidedly lucky, although he did bring oil some very decent saves. The first goal was the outcome of some bungling on his port while I certainly think he ought to have g it at tho ball when the second goal was scored. The backs, on the whole, played well, Sunny Kvans and Davies beiug by no means responsible for the defeat. The halves played well, Matthews and Roberts working like trojans I all through, while Williams again justified his inclosion I in the team. With a little more judgment he will make J a half-back hard to beat. The Rhyl right vring were starve! dnrinj the opening portion of the game, but, when given an opportunity, E E Dairies, on the extreme right, did some very useful work. D Hughes disappointed me very much. He is not the player that he was during the opening match of the season. He was decidedly lazy on Saturday, and misled taking advantage of several fine openings made by his colleague. I! he wants t) retain his position in the Rhyl Comb nation team I should ndvise him to improve on Saturday's exhibition. Rowland Thomas tried had to find the net and gave a fairly gjod account of himself. Kdwar Is and Roberts, on tlie left, played well throughout The forward line, as a whole, did not give any exhibition of combination indeed, compared with the Wrexham quintette their combination was of a very negligible quantity. Of the victors J Hughes was undoubtedly, the best p ayer, his cooloes3 aud sound play contributing greatly to his club's success. The Vies, wr-re unfortunate in having to divide the gpoili with Hawardcn Bridge on Saturday, especially after having the best of the ginie. The visitors scored in tho opening half, but the Vies., althoagh p-essing severely, clulll not get toe bail into the net uniil some five minutes from time. To lose points at home will no! win the championship of the Flintshire League, so I hone the Vies will have better luck rext time. The Guild visited Uuthinjin their initial Coast League encounter, and they did o well as to return home unbeaten, having divided the point-i with a drlw of one goal each. This is a good start, and I hope the Guild will do as well in their future engagements. On Saturday next they have their first home matih, when they will entertain Chester College in a friendly on the Belle Vue Ground. The Collngiates are no strangers to Rhyl, and ss they always give a good game I hope the Gmld will have a good gate. Mr Storey has undertaken t) give the first kick.

We regret to announce the death, which occurred on Sunday, of Mrs Jones, wife of Councillor Joseph Jones, Waterloo Villas. Much sympathy will be felt with the family in their bereavement. Mr and Mrs Jones settled down at Rhyl about 32 years ago, since when they have enjoyed great popularity in the town. Mrs J ones, who was a native of Bangor, was a kind-hearted woman, an earnest Christian worker, and ever ready to aid any worthy object irrespective of creed. During the period of her husband's churchwardenship at Su John's, she was a pillar of strength to him in many directions. The loss of a devoted wife and mother is now mourned by her husband and three sons. Mrs Jones was 58 years of age, and her death was due to cerebral hemorrhage. The funeral took place yesterday, and was of a private character. Prior to the interment in the old cemetery. a service was held in St Thomas' Church. The officiating clerey- men were the Reve. E M Richards, Rhyl, and 0 J Davies, Prestatyn. There wer( numerous floral tributes from relatives and friends near and far. At the monthly meeting of the Rhyl Urban Dis- trict Council, on Monday, the Chairman (Mr W J P Storey) referred with regret t,o the fact that one of their number, Mr Joseph Jones, had suffered a heavy bereavement by the death of his wife, who for many years, he remarked, had shared the high esteem in which Mr Jones was held in the district, having endeared herself to her many acquaintances in various ways. He w;s sure the Council deeply sympathised with Mr Jones in his loss, and he pro- posed a vote ot "YIIlP ithy with the berewed family. Mr G A Taveruer seconded the motion, and it was carried, the members standing. St John's Men's Society. The winter session of the St John's branch of the Church of England Men's Society was opened last Friday evening, when a fair number of members assembled in the Wellington Road National School to hear an address by Mr S Chad- wick on various aspects of Church work. Mr 0 Grosvenor occupied the chair. Mr Chadwick's remarks were followed with great interest, and at the close he was cordially thanked, on the motion of Mr Fowles, seconded by Mr S Jones, Borthyn Terrace. We understand that a series of lantern lectures under the auspices of the society will commence shortly. The Vicar of Rhyl is president of the society, with Mr S Jones, Chetwynd Cottage, as secretary and treasurer. Christ Church Mutual Improvement Society. A meeting of this society was held in Christ Church lecture hall on Monday, for the purpose of making arrangements for the coming winter session. The Rev J Pandy Williams was elected president, and Mr F C Tailby treasurer, while Mr Caradoc Williams undertook the duties of secre- tary pro tem. It was decided to arrange a series of monthly studies of the works of the poet Tenny- son. The session will be inaugurated with a lecture on Eccentricities of Welsh Preachers." Ducal Charitable Bequests. With his usual munificence the Duke of West- minster intends to distribute the Eaton Hall and gardens takings, this year amounting to £1010, amongst the various charitable institutions of the district, including the Royal Alexandra Hospital, £ 50; Men's Convalescent Home, X30 and Women's Convalescent Home, £ 30. English Baptist Chapel. The Rev. G E Johnston, London, has been ap- pointed to the temporary charge of the English Baptist Chapel, Sussex Street. His services are proving very acceptable, there being already a marked improvement in the congregations. Volunteer Items. The Colwyn Bay Volunteers had their annual prize shooting meeting at Foryd Range last Saturday, To-morrow it is the turn of the Abergele and Prestatyn Volunteers, Our New Serial. Next week we shall commence publication of a tale by Mr Frank Barrett, the well-known writer of first-class fiction. It is entitled "By Misad- venture," and we think that readers of fiction will be pleased with it. It has been described as being vivid in its fine description, thrilling in its plot, and brilliant in literary craftsmanship." Wedding. A marriage was quietly solemnised at Clwyd Street C.M. Chapel last Friday, the contracting parties being Dr Llewelyn Williams, F.R.C.S. and D.P.H. (Edinburgh), son of the Rev John Williams, Colwyn Bay, and medical officer of health for Wrexham borough and district, and Miss Maggie Price, only daughter of the late Mr Robert Price and of Mrs Price, 32 High Street, Rhyl. The officiating ministers were the Revs S T Jones, Rhyl, and T M Jones, Colwyn Bay. The bride, who was given away by her uncle, Dr Griffiths, Holywell, was gracefully attired in a dress of white crepe-de-chine, with a veil sur- mounted by a wreath of orange blossom. Nurse Margaret Williams, Chester, who acted as brides- maid, wore a dress of blue crepe-de-chine, trimmed with white Honiton lace, and a cloth hat, trimmed with roses. Dr J 0 Williams, Brynsiencyn, Anglesey, discharged the duties of best man. Atter a reception at the residence of the bride's mother, the newly married couple, who were the recipients of numerous presents, left for York, where the honeymoon is spent. Serious Cycle Accident.

The central Hall. Mr A Cheetham ^oatinues to cater in a praise- worthy manner for seukers after amusement, his gramophone concerts no less than his famous i-dlvograph pictures being a great draw. The pictures embrace a great variety ot subjects, and are of great educational value,besides being a source of much hilarity. Yesterday afternoon's Melba gramophone coucert included renderings of The Promise of Life" by Madame L Dews, "Angds ever bright and fdir" by Madame Albani, Ilikado selection by the Coldstream Guards Band, The Broken Melody" by Auguste Van Biene, Sweet Bird by Madame Melba, "I love a lassie," by Harry Lauder, Laughing Song," by Henry Klauser, &c. Victoria Hall. This week's attraction at the Victoria Hall is the performance of that delightful musical comedy "Beryl" by Mr and Mrs F Garton's juvenile company. That the play is in excellent hands is the testimony of all that have witnessed it, the children playing their parts adnuirably. Baby Ada is a great favourite, especially in her song "Wont you come and spoon with me?" l iss Lucy Garton's dancing, Master Harry George's mimicry, and Little Annie's coon impersonations are also very taking features. Royal Alexandra Hospital Her Grace Katheriue Duchess of Westminster has given a framed print of Midais's well known portrait of the late Dake of Westminster, to be in the Westminster block of the Hospital. On Saturday Mrs Price, 32 High Street, sent the patients two bouquets from the wedding of her daughter, who was fr inerly a nurse in the Hos- pital, and her kind thought was much appreciated. The following gifts have been received and are gratefullyi.acknowledged:—Appl< s, Mrs Brinkley; papers and magazines, Mr Herbert, and Mrs Millward flowers, Mrs Talbott. Coricert. At the Town Hall yesterday evening a concert was held in aid of the funds of Bethel C.M Chapel, Vale Road.

The open- ing item was a brilliant pianofonJ solo by Miss Eleanor Roberts, K.A.M. Then came a capital Welsh duet by Messrs Evan Lewis and J Morris Jones. Mr Lewis also sang in tine style Nirvana" I and Death of Nelson," while Mr Jones' rich voice was heard to great ad vantage in the songs"Gwalia," "My Dreams," and "Good Company."

The duties ot accompanist were ably dis- charged by Mr Wadsworth, Music Room", Water Street, who also supplied the piano. Technical Instruction Classes. We regret to learn that the evening classes arranged by the Technical Instruction Committee have not been taken up as well as could have been expected. The probability is that unless more students are forthcoming, two or three subjects will have to be dropped. Amongst the most popular are those for French, book-keeping and shorthand. The mathematics and chemistry classes have not proved very attractive so far. More students of Welsh, art, and cooking should be forthcoming. Soar Chapel. The social season in connection with Soar Welsh Wesleyan Chapel was successfully inaugurated yesterday evening, when a numerous company assembled in the Brunsw-ck Schoolroom for tea provided by the la iies of Soar congregation. The ar, aiig-meats were carried out under the superintendence of Mrs Davies, Pontvgwtter; Mrs Jones, 25 Vale Road, and Mrs Ellis Evans.

Yesterday, in the presence of a number of friends, the marriage took place at the Welsh Wesleyan Chapel of Miss Lizzie Williams, maid at Albert Villa, and Mr John H Davies, 19 Abbey Street. The bride, who was chastely attired, was given away by her brother-in-law, Mr Williams, Mertyn House, Denbigh. The bridesmaid was Miss Henrietta Jones, Cliff House, Denbigh and Mr R Jones, Hope Place, acted as best man. The pre- sents received were both numerous and useful.

Enquiry at Llanfair. Colonel SJa3ke, of the Local Government Board, held an inquiry at Llanfairtalhaiarn, near Aber gele, as to an application of the St. Asaph (Denbigh) Rural District Council for sanction to borrow E 1, 180 for works of water supply to that village, which has developed into a popular mountain resort. Strong opposition was raised by Mr R Griffith, member of the District Council, and his father, Mr W Griffith, county councillor, to the rector of Llanfairtalhaiarn being supplied with water from the works. Mr Grimsley, clerk to the Council, gave evid- ence as to the need of a water supply, in con- junction with a new scheme of drainage. He pointed out that although the drainage question had been dealt with by the Local Government Board several years ago it was not proceeded with until the water supply was decided upon. After going into the question of the acquisition of the land for the sewage disposal, the Inspector held that the Council would have to acquire a larger area, and an undertaking to that effect was given. Dealing with the water supply, the Clerk stated that the rector had given notice, as riparian own- er of a brook, to the effect that he would jjobject to the works unless the Council gave an under- taking that should the necessity arise he would receive compensating water for that abstracted. That the Council was prepared to do. Mr RI Griffith said the rector should prove that he was entitled to the water. Why should the rector receive favour ? The Inspector repliedthat it Was a matter of arrangement, and was usually done when water was taken. Mr Farringdon, the engineer, gave evidence as to the cost and nature of the works, and replying to Mr R Griffith, said the rectory was close to the pipe line, while Mr Griffith's house was 300 yards from the nearest point. Mr R Griffith also objected to an item of £100 for additional works suggested, and said they did not want to spend the money. Mr Farringdon.— They don't have a water supply. If you don't have a water supply you will not have to spend the money. I don't want you to have it, you asked for a scheme, and I give it to you. Before closing the inquiry Mr R Griffith urged the Local Government Board to give an early decision, so that work could be provided for the uneiiirloyed.

TRE LORDS AND THE PEOPLE The cheap thunder of Ministerial spouters I Li of the penny dreadful type has had a dis- coursing reception from the Marquess of Lansdowne, He knows how it is made. He knows that a xc.rv small gamin can thump the tin tray behind the scenes which makes the noise that is expected to frighten the House of Lords from its duty. Than Lord Lansdowne no one is better entitled by high character, high statesmanship, and wide ex- perience to represent the House. This is apart from the material right he possesses as the Leader of a five to one majority. Thus armed the Conservative Leader in the Lords is able to smile with a quietly indulgent con- tempt at the puny thunder of the tinkling Boanerges, who talk at one time of crushing the House ot Lords under a steam roller, at another time of playing at football with it. What is much more to the point is Lord Lansdowne's masterly and lucid exposition of the constiuttional functions of the House of Lords. The Lords do not claim the right of obstruction which is recklessly and malici- ously imputed to them by destructive Radi- cals. THe Lords do claim and will undoubt- edly exercise the right to revise measures which are sent to them from the other House. That right was never so precious as it is now. when many Government Bills are sent up to bc Lords which have not been considered at all, or only partially considered. It is the duty even more than the right of the Lords to examine very carefully, and amend where necessary, Bills as to which three-quarters of the clauses had never been discussed at all in the House of Commons. Not only is it the duty of the Lords to atone for the default of the Commons in this way, but it is also its right and duty, in regard to Bills of constitutional importance, to carry any dispute that may arise between the two Houses to the Supreme Court of Appeal- the country. The Lords found their justi- fication for this course when they threw out the Home Rule Bills, and the country, after being allowed two years to consider the question dispassionately, confirmed the con- stitutional action of the Lords in the most definite and convincing way. Bearing in 0 rnind that lesson. the present Government would better consult its dignity by refraining from ridiculoti 's threats, and leaving to the country the decision on any conflict that may arise between the two Houses.
Gossip. i ne muffled peais actually did come to an end on > unday. Sorne people who do not Tike this pro- longed pealinc feared they might be continued at intervals until Christmas. The two rooms in Sussex Street rented for a Liberal Club are now being made fit and decorated. A determined attempt to get in the young men of the town is to be made, and there is great enthusi- asm prevailing. This spirit among their opponents ougnt to place tne members of the Conservative Club on their mettle. There is nothing like competition. An American paper states that the city of I Maukato has reason to be proud of the firm cf Burgess and Lukyn, particularly of our Thomas Lukyu, who resides here, and is -i gentleman of integrity and honour, whose word is like his horses —reliable. 11» is here to stay, an;l values hia reputation above and beyond all monev considera- tion." The occasion which called forth this ankee appreciation was the winning of a gold medal by the firm, in competition with horse dealers from various states. The firm imports stallions from the old woud to tne new, and their last consign-J ment was S2 in number. Mr Lukyn until recently j was a dentist, residing at Rhyl. J Yet another fried fish shop! This time High 1 Street is to be perfumed. The locale will be the old Britannia Inn (no charge for this announce- ment), for the licence of which the oecupiers of other licensed premises had recently to pay dearly. This used to be a well-known inn for more years than we: have lived, and its old frequenters would have regarded the present change in its occupation with some horror.

''Leading Churchmen." TO TilE EDITOR OF THE RHYL .roURN'AL. -1 read in one of the daily papers that a Leading Churchman in Rhyl gave his counten- ance and his blessing to a Nonconformist gathering on Sunday afternoon last, and ever since I have been curious to know the meaning of the phrase. Where does the "Churchmaaship" come in, not to Tnention "Leadership" The relation seems to me incongruous, and degrading to both parties. I have no objection to Nonconformists becoming the patrons of Sunday concerts, or of Sunday football, for the matter of that but surely their own self- respect ought to be strong enough to protect them against this constant touting for "Churchmen" to act as figure-heads to their performances. And ought not these "leading Churchmen" to have some regard for the consciences of their weaker brethren ?—I am, &c, A PERPLEXED CHURCHMAN. I'.S.—A friend has just pointed out to me the words in which Dr Clifford at their annual meeting spoke of the spler.did service" rendered by the P.S.A Brotherhood at the laet general election. Perhaps this explains the inwardness" of last Sunday's anomaly
Prestatyn. Choral Society. The Prestatyn Choral Society are about to com- mence rehearsiDg The Creation." Many of the members are taking advantage of the musical class under the auspices of the Technical Instruction Committee. A movement has been set afoot with the object of making a presentation to Mr Oliyer Proffit in recognition of his valuei services to the society in the capacity of secretary. Cymnasium. Arrangements are being made for the re-opening of this institution at an early date. Harvest Home. Next Thursday has been set apart by the Church people and Welsh ^Nonconformist bodies of Prestatyn as a day of thanksgiving for the ingathering of the harvest. The English Presby- terian harvest festival is fixed for Sunday next. Welsh Wesleyan Circuit Meeting. The quarterly meting of the hyl and 1restatyn Welsh Wesleyan Circuit was held yesterday at Bethel Chapel, Prestatyn, and was followed by a social gathering, at which the company were entertained to tea by the senior ladies of Bethel congregation. The circuit meeting wss held under the chairmanship of the Rev W 0 Evans, Rhyl. A membership of o55 was reported, this being a decrease of 10 (owing to removals) compared with the previous quarter. The collections for the quarter totalled £ 68 16s 9d. It was resolved to hold a musicai festival in conjunction with next year's Sun- day School examination. The revival thanksgiving collcetionsarrioui3tedtoi228s,of which 1:11 was voted to the home mission fund. As a result of a I discussion on spiritual work it was decided to hold a convention at Rhyl and another at Prestatyn between now and Christmas. Appointments were made as follows :—Treasurer, Air J F Griffiths, Rhyl secretaries, Revs J Kelly, Prestatyn, Robert Hughes, Rhyl temperance secretary, Mr W M Williams, Rhyl treasurer of worn-out ministers' fund, Mr Rd Edwards, Rhyl. Death. Much sympathy is felt for the family of the Rev Ezra Jones, Prestatyn, and other relatives in the district, in the severe blow that has fallen upon them by the death, of Miss Jennie Jones, only child of Mr Morris Jones, Dee Farm, Llantysilio. The sad event occurred somewhat suddenly on the 3rd inst. Decceased was a young lady of consider- able literary attainments and an enthusiastic Christian worker, and she was well-known in Prestatyn, being a niece of the Rev Ezra Jones. She was only in her 27th year. Evening Ciasses. Arrangements in connection with the Prestatyn Technical instruction classes are almost complete, and judging b" the numer n's entries there should be a 'g cesshl course. 'Miss Storrar, Ingleside, has bees, engaged as instructor of the cooking class, while jSRees, Rhyl County School, has been appointee- instructor in book-keeping and short- Hand, and -ur G W .Jones as singing instructor. There are already as many as 60 members of the singing class. A teacher of dressmaking has not yet been engaged, but it is hoped that the post will be filled in a few days. All persons desirou3 of joining the classes should communicate with the Tuwn Clerk (Mr Jno Hughes), who has under- taken the duties of secretary. Passenger Ovorboartl Something of a sensation was created in Prestatyn on Wednesday afternoon, when it was rumoured abroad that a passenger had jumped from an express train as it rushed through the railway station in the direction of Chester shortly after four o'clock. The rumour was not without some foundation, but the facts were not as grave as one was at first led to believe. What actually happened was that a collie dog, who apparently was not enjoying all the freedom he desired, spran? through a carriage window as the train sped through the station. When picked up off the metals by the station officials the animal was found to be badly injured. A cosy corner was found for it in the parcel office, and everything was done to bring it round." Preaching Meetings. The annual preaching meetings in connection with Rehoboth and Towyn C.M. Chapels were held on Saturday, Sunday and Monday last. There were large congregations throughout, impressive sermons being delivered by the Revs John Roberts, Rhyl, John Evans, Llanfaircaereinion, and John Roberts, Liverpool.

Resident in Abergele, where he owned considerable property, for practically the whole of his life, he took an interest in the atfdoirs of the town, and represented it oa the Board of (Guardians for many years. He also sat on the Abergele Local Board. He sat for years on the Bench as a justice of the peace for Denbighshire, but some years ago resigned that office owing to his advancing years and deafness.
