CORRESPONDENCE. THE RHYL TOWN OUNCIL AND SUNDAY MUSIC ON THE PROMENADE. To the Editor of the RECORD AND ADVERTISER. Siiz,-The minority in favour of Sunday amuse ments and Sunday desceration have for a time secured their ends. I shall say nothing at present of the mean and contemptible way by which they have succeeded to attain this temporary victory at the height of our busy season. My object in writing is to appeal to all the friends of Sunday observance in this town to loose no time in communicating to their representatives on the Council ti.e indignation and shame with which they view the recent action of the Council, and to express their hope that at the next meeting of the Council immediate steps shall be taken to give practical effect to the actual views of the great majority of the inhabitants and ratepayers of this town on this question, a matter so vitally affecting our most cherished inheritage the Sabbath day. The majority of the Council, we have reason to believe are sound on this great question. What is now immediately necessary, is. that all men who value the Sabbath day should declare their support to those men oa the Council who have in the past stood firm against the continual agitations of the forces of demoralisation in the Council We owe these men a debt of gratitude. Let us assure these representatives of our convictions on this vital question the loyal support of the forces of religion and morality in this grave crisis. The Welsh section of the Free Church Council, representing the seven Welsh Nonconformist churches of Rhyl, and their branches have already held a special meeting, and have unanimously agreed upon a series of resolutions, which were announced, I understand, at the public services last Sunday evening. The protest of the Free Church Council will be conveyed to the next Town Council. These hurried proceedings, forced upon us at this busy time by the action of the Council, will I hope be sufficient at present to put a stop to this municipal sanction to Sabbath day breaking and desecration The-Band should also learn, it will be their own "Interest to do so that they will in the end suffer far more than they will gain by flouting the conscientious convictions of Welshmen on this question of Sabbath day observance If they are not well supported under the present arrangements, it would have been far better for them to seek the support of the religious element in this town to obtain a sufficient grant from the Town Couneil to maintain themselves comfortably on six days'work—hard work as I know it is, than to alienate their sympathy and support by these Sunday engagements. I am sorry that their support is not what it should be. The musical taste of this town lias not been yet cultivated The band will soon learn, however, that the comparative few supporters of classical music in Rhyl are neither among nor re- presented, by the recent petitions for Sunday Music, or their abbetors on the Town Council. I am Sir, yours, &c., T. SHANKLAND.
