THE ALLEGED TAMPERING WITH VOTING PAPERS. The statement we published last week re- specting the tampering with voting papers at the last election of Commissioners has caused considerable excitement in town. The quid nones shook their heads, and said it was a ter- rible charge for the Advertiser to bring against public officials. As a matter of policy we re- frained from then publishingi all the inform- ation in our possession that, indeed, would have been a false step to take. But there are in all communities individuals who prate and chatter,who deny and condemn, and pronounce fearful anathemas on all things of the details of which they are in ignorance. So it is in the present case. Several attempts have been made to force us to disclose our hand. We abide our time and if these people will only exercise a little patience their curiosity will be satisfied. All things come to those who wait." When the proper time arrives, par- ticulars in substantiation of the charges will be made public. In the meantime we reiterate the assertion that a voting paper was tampered with-i.e., altered in favour of a certain candidate-after it had passed the Returning Officer. The evidence in our possession warrants us in making the charge and justifies us in drawing the con- clusion that if this was done in one case, it might be done in others. At the next Petty Sessions, Mr WHo DAVIES, one of the defeated candidates, will make an application to the Bench for leave to inspect the voting papers. The application will be made in his own name, and also on behalf of Mr WK. WILLIAMS, the other unsuccessful candidate; and, we under- stand, the applicants will be represented by Counsel. While the matter stands thus—in a manner sub-judice—we will not at present discuss further this phase of it. The subject naturally cropped up at the special meeting of the Commissioners held on Monday. Mr KEATINOB asked the Returning Officer to declare whether anything illegal bad been done in connection with the election. The weakness of the question is apparent on the face of it and, as Mr ELLIS pointed out, such a request was altogether premature, and he very properly declined to answer it. After a Mwrogian display of disjointed oratory, Mr KENT unburdened his soul on the subject, and at the outset charged the person who caused the charge to be published" with want of manliness. Mr KENT, at the last monthly meeting, himself laid it down with autho- rity that" manliness is a quality upon which opinion is divided. However, be that as it may, the assertions referred to were made by us, solely on our own responsibility; and we, without reservation, accept the consequence. Mr KENT'S grotesque and feeble attempt to fasteu the charge upon the Town Clerk would be simply ridiculous, were it not for the gravity of the offence alleged. His forced definition of paid official showed that he hadjnot given the question much consideration. Length or continuity of service is not neces- sarily the qualification of an official." A regular hand" employed by Mr KENT would be as much a draper's paid assistant as a casual sale hand. Besides, all the persons en- gaged at the election-the Town Clerk and be as much a draper's paid assistant as a casual sale hand. Besides, all the persons en- gaged at the election—the Town Clerk and Town Surveyor inoluded—were there as paid assistants to the Returning Officer, who had aDsoiute control over the appointments. So, in that sense, every one of the clerks who re- ceived pay for their services were paid offi- cials, and we used the term official as applying to the election, and not to the Com- missioners. And for that reason one at least of the permanent officials of the Board re- B?FCIAL FEE FOR services on the day of the election; and consequently all the other Paid assistants were on a par with him. Mr KENT'S deductions are utterly unjustifiable, and we cannot understand why he should have taken so much trouble to implicate either the Town Clerk or the Town Surveyor. As regards the Chairman's threat, that un- less the parties who made the charge would come forward to substantiate the misme, it would be his (the Returning Omcefl) duty to take the matter in hand," we can only say that both he and the Board are powerless to take any proceedings against us, nor can they move in the matter at all. After he had delivered his certificate, his part in the election, and in the conduct of it, was absol- utely finished. And Mr CLEWS very neatly expressed this, when he said that the Board- room was not the proper place to discuss the matter. Events will be moved on" in the course of a few days and if, after a thor- ough inquiry, our assertions are not upheld, we will not fail to make the fullest and frankest apology to the Returning Officer and his assistants.
THE PRIMROSE LEAGUE. OUR Tory friends have had another gala day in Rhyl dedicated to St. Primrose. The dames were busy plying the cheering cup, and some local supporters aired their eloquence to the tune of Hule Brittania. The hero of the evening was our quondam friend Mr BARRON, a hired advocate from Manchester, who seemed very much aggrieved at our letting him off so lightly. We feel complimented that he had kept a copy of the Record and Advertiser for twelve months, and then did us the honour of quoting an article,whioh for the sake of the continually increasing number of our readers we reproduce in another column. We have not the pleasure of being personally acquain- ted with Mr BARRON, and know not whether he is a worthy successor of Mr Touchstone, whose escapades are well known to the readers of these columns. We will take it for granted that Mr BARRON is a fairly re- spectable Leaguer, and that as such he is entitled to abuse Mr GLADSTONE, who is the bite noir of the Unionist party. Mr BARRON glories that he is a man and not a sycophant. As appearances indicate that he is a member of the human species we will allow that he may be entitled to be called a man but we will allow him also to wear the title of syco- phant. Oar dictionary tells that a sycophant meant formerly an informer, or false accu- ser,modernly, the term is applied to a "parasite, a mean, or servile flatterer." Mr BARRON accused Mr GLADSTONE indirectly of being a liar. He said irreverently that he only told the truth once a week, when in the language of the Liturgy he confessed his sins to Almighty GOD in Church on the Sunday. If Mr GLADSTONE excels in anything it is in truthfulness and exactitude. A man that dares to accuse him of the contrary is a "sycophant." Mr BARRON is a servile adulator of Lord BEA- CONSFIRLD, whose character is well-known,and to which history will very shortly do full jus- tice, and this also proves him to be a mean and servile flatterer," and therefore a sycophant." It is all very well to challenge anyone to a public discussion upon Home Rule for Ire- land. Let him wait until the Tory party pro- pose a Bill giving Home Rule to Ireland. When there is a scheme before the country which can be discussed we shall be glad to meet lauqTor anyone else of his tribe. The Tory champion was sorry to think that ours was the leading paper" in Rhyl, and denied,our claim to be the best paper." We 'are iSaeh obliged for the gratuitous advertise- ment/which was more effective than a host of sandwich men; not that we should consider by any means these men less respect- able than Mr BARRON. For coarseness and vulgarity the latter is certainly entitled to pre-eminence. At the same time we are quite satisfied with the support given to our paper by the Tory party in Rhyl and neighbourhood. We hope to continue to deserve that support by giving the best reports of meetings, and commenting upon them in a free and inde- pendent spirit. He saya that the Advertiser is unknown to fame-surely he can no longer raise that objection since the famous Mr BARRON has deigned to take notice of it. But who has ever heard of Mr BABRON outside the Prim- rose League, and who would think of attach- ing any importance to the; "hare-brained chatter of irresponsible frivolity ? Our Tory contemporary is welcome tj any lift which Mr BARRON can give him, and of which no doubt he will make liberal use. We prefer the adverse criticism of theBe peripatetic lecturers to any praise or patron- age which they might in their generosity attempt to bestow upon us.
THE CHAIRMANSHIP. Mr LLEWELYN LLOYD'S name has been men- tioned as a candidate for the chairmanship. Mr LLOYD is a young gentleman of some promise, but his experience at the Board, and the work he has done so far in the interest of the town, do not entitle him to that proud position. There are at least three members whose claims are much superior. These are Mr WILLIAM WILLIAMS, Mr E. W. KEATINGE, and Mr P. MOSTYN WILLIAMS. In Mr WM. WILUAMS we have a gentleman whose know- ledge of the Standing Orders, and whose ability as a debater are unquestioned, but we are afraid, in the present temper of the Board, he is out of the running. Mr KEATINGE for the last twelve months, has not attended to his duties regularly, and has consequently lost the priority which his ex- perience and capacity undoubtedly gave him. In Mr MOSTYN WILLIAMS we have a gentle- man in whom the Board has the utmost con- fidence, and who possesses in an eminent degree, the requisite tact and ability to conduct the business of the Commissioners in a satis. factory manner, and to raise the Board from its present apparently helpless position, and f enable it to perform real good work. It would be exceedingly unfortunate to select Mr LLOYD for chairman, as he is a magis- trate, and therefore an ez-officsio Guardian, having a voice in the management of county affairs. The Board is now in a state of tran- sition. During the year the chairman will have much to do in arranging the transfer of powers to the New County Council, and he ought to be a man whose hands are unfettered. It would be no less than a pablic calamity to be placed in a false position in this respect. All unbiassed persons on the Board, and outside of it, will agree with us when we say that in Mr MOSTYN WILLIAMS we have a man who will help to adjust matters to the best advan- tage, and whose special qualifications at this juncture are indispensable. We trust that party politfcs will not be thrust forward to r the detriment of the town.

SUSPICIOUS DEATH OF A CHILD; THE INQUEST. On Monday, Wm. Davies, Esq., county coroner, held an inquest at the Board Room. Town Hall, Rhyl, touching the death of Jane Alcock, 7, Hollingwood Terrace. The following constituted the jury :-Messrs J. Roberts, Ironmonger (fore- man) R. E. Hughes, Architect; William Parry, Abbey-street; J. T. Jones, Aled House R. D. Roberts, Auctioneer J. E. Varnoa, Wynnstay Hotel; H. G. Little, Bath-street James Kilshaw, New Inn George Clarke. Lorne Hotel; J. Frim- ston, Church-street; G. H. Robbins, Mirket- street P. Powell Jones, Water-street; Thomas Davies, Crescent-road R. S. Saunders, Abbey-street; and D. Trehearn, Stationer. Mr J. T. Jones, Aled House, asked to be exempted from serving, on account of being lame and unable to walk as far as Hollingwood Terrace to view the body. The CoroLer complied with the request. Robert Alcock, sawyer, living at 7, Hollingwood Terrace, deposedt hat he worked with Messrs Chas. Jones & Sons, Timber Merchants, Voryd. The body the jury had just viewed was that of his child, aged 9 months. About 12 o'clock on Saturday night he took the child, which was lying in the cradle, a bottle of milk. About 9-30 on Sunday morning, he went down tc light the fire, and called down the wife to get breakfast ready. The other child was rather cross. Having done some work down stairs she went up for the deceased. Witness was outside fetching some coals for the fire when his wife came to him and said the little girl was dead. Witness went up stairs to see the child and found it was dead, and afterward& went for Mr Sproson, who came with him to the house; and Dr. Summerhill was sent for. Dr. Summerhill having looked at the body, told witness that the best thing he could do was to go to Inspector McLaren. Witness went to the Police Station and related all the circumstances to P.C. Johns. By the Coroner The deceased was an illegiti- mate child, its mother being Jemima Broadie. When he got up on Sunday morning he did not look at the child in the cradle at all. There •vas no one sleepingjwith witness on Saturday night, iior had there been anyone for the last three weeks. 'l>e reason he took the milk to the child was because she was crying. The child, to all appearance, was all right on Saturday night. During his wife's con- finement witness's mother-in-law attended her, and also attended to the deceased. The first time he saw the child after Saturday night, was when he found her dead about 12 o'clock on Sunday morn- ing. Witness's mother-in-law was not sleeping in the house on Saturday night, having gone to her home in Liverpool by the 6 o'clock train. A neigh- bour of the name of Mrs Richardson also occasion- ally looked in. Dr. Summerhill deposed that he was called to 7, Hollingwood Terrace, between 1-30 and 2 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, and found the child lying in the cradle dead, and quite cold. The hands were firmly clenched, and the limbs contracted, the left side of thejchild's face and neck were smothered in vomit, and the child's mouth was full of vomit. He had made an external examination of the body that morning, and found a lot of post mortem stain- ing, but no bruises of any kind. The body was fairly well nourished, and the child had evidently been suffering from red gum. In his opinion, the cause of death was suffocation by food or the milk. By the Jury It was not a common thing for a child to be suffocated under simw,rly circumstances. Jemima Broadie, grandmother of the deceased, said that on the 15th of March, she went to Robert Alcock's house to see the child, but was told that she could not see it. The reason she went there was because she had heard that the child was unwell and very thin. The Coroner having summoned up, The jury returned the following verdict: fi That the child died from suffocation caused by vomiting, and the jury are of opinion that the father is guilty of gross negligence for not attending to the child for so long a time."
MR. DAVID PENNANT'S MAJORITY. REJOICINGS AT NANTLLYS. On Monday, the heir of Nantllys, Mr David Pennant, attained his majoriy, and the auspicious event was made one for general rejoicings by the inhabitants of the neighbourhoods of Bodfary and Tremeirchion. At a meeting of friends and neigh- bours of the family, held on the 26th ult., it was I resolved that a general fund be formed for the nur- I pose of celebrating the [event at the two paeishes. r Local subscriptions only to be used to defray the ( cost of the tea parties to the children and rejoicings ( the outside subscriptions, supplemented by any balance that might remain after defraying the costs -A of the festivities, to be used for making a suitable presentation to Mr David Pennant to mark his coming of age. In response to the appeals sent, subscriptions came in freely, and on Monday the local celebrations of the event took place. At the meeting referred to the Rev. T. B. Browne, Vicar of Bodfary, expressed his intention of giving a treat tc the children of Bodfary parish, at his own expense, Although several gentlemen present endeavoured to persuade him to amalgamate with Tremeirchion, he declined to do so, and on Monday he carried out his intention, that is, of giving tea to the children and teachers attending the Church Sunday School. The Nonconformist children of the palish joined those of the other parish at Nantllys. The event was celebrated after the usual village fashion. Arches of evergreens, bearing inscriptions wishing long life to Mr David Pennant, spanned the roads at different points of the villpge, several I cottages also displayed flags. The Ffynnon Beuno Arms was gaily decorated, and the approaches to Nantllys were gracefully embellished with flags, bannerettes, &c., the motto, "Hir oes i Mr Pennant," occupying a prominent position. Canons were fired at frequent intervals, and everything tended to show that the rejoicings were hearty and spontaneous. Almost the whole of the inhabitants of the villages had adjourned to Nantllys, the resi- I' dence of Mr Pennant. At 2 o'clock the children and adults to the number of 700, marched, headed by the Denbigh Volunteer Brass Band, and afterwards were supplied with tea. The following gentle- men paid a visit to Nantllys M. A. 3j»IK Esq., Brynbella Colonel Humberston, the Prin- cipal of St. Beuno's College; Col. Mesham, Pontruffydd Rev. Father Huggins; the Vicar of Tremeirchion, Ac. The children having done ample justice to the repast, the adnlts were also treated to tea. After tea the children indulged in various sports and games, whilst the older people amused themselves in dancing, &c. Unfortunately Mr Pennant and Mi David Pennant were unable to be present on Monday, and their absence was the only 1 drawback to the day's proceedings. I Colonel Humberston, before leaving the ground j was asked to say a few words to the assembly. He I said that the event which they had met to celebrate was a very gratifying one, viz., that the son of I their neighbour, and his relative, Mr Pennant, had that day attained his 21st year (annlause^ and presented himself now, as they might say, to the f world, a very promising subject, to take his place in the proper position he was to occupy (cheers), a position which he believed he would fill with credit to his name and station (hear, hear). A proof of the kindly feeling evinced in that neigh. bourhood towards Mr Pennant, was found in the cordial messages that had passed that morn- | ing between that part of the country and I Mr Pennant. The following telegram, in answer I to one that had been sent, had been received from Mr David Pennant by Mr John Roberts, Geinas To my kind friends and neighbours in Wales,— I Accept my most aincere and warmest thanks for I your good wishes and congratulations on my birth- day. I wish I could be with you." Mr Thomas Edwards had also received the following telegram: "Please convey to the workmen of Nantllys my sincere and warmest thanks for their kind congra- tulations received this morning (cheers). As re- presenting Mr Pennant and his son, he was sure they would feel highly grateful to those gentl6men who had taken steps to mark this very important event in their family (hear, hear). He hoped and trusted that Mr David Pennant would long live to be a support and assistance to his family, and when he was put in possession of the property, that he would bear in mind the interest of others as well as of himself. He would convey to Mr Pennant the expressions of good feeling that had been shown to him and his family by those present that day, and felt sure they would be highly gratified by them. He once more thanked them for their kindness. Cheers were then called for and heartilv eiven for g- Mr and Mrs Pennant, Mr David Pennant and the Misses Pennant. The school children having sung I very sweetly a song that had been composed for the occasion, the sports and games were resumed, and carried on until about 8 o'clock. In the evening bonfires were lit on the mountains, and canons fired I until a late hour. Every one seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed themselves and well pleased with everything. The arrangements were admir- ably carried out by the energetic secretary, Mr R. Lloyd, Ffynnon Beuno. Material assistance being also rendered by Messrs Edwin Morgan, Cae Gwyn, John Roberts, Geinas. the schoolmasters of Rhuallt and Bodfary, Mr McCarte, T. Mathews, Bryn Ibbot, Roberts, Hendre, J. Roberts, Geinas, D. Williams, Pistyll, John Hilditch, Edwin Rees Owen Griffith, W. Parry, W. Humphreys, E. Morgan, and William Jones, Nantowilym. f°llowin^ ladies were the tea makers: — MM Mesham, Mrs Ralli, Mrs Morgan, Miss Old- field, Miss Roberts (Geinas), Mrs Roberts (Hendre), Mrs Llovd (Ffynon Beuno), Mrs Mathews (Bryn t Ibbot), Mrs Erving, Miss Williams (Pistylli, Mrs j' Jones (Tanyfallen), Mw Hughes (Adwywynt), Mioi j
