The General Secretary sub- mitted bills in connection with the proclamation ceremony, amounting to £24, and they were approved of. Bills were also submitted, amounting to £46, in connection with the erec- tion of the Gorsedd and the removal of the big stone to Rhyl, whilst the account for the trac- tion engine had not yet come to hand. It was stated that the total sum voted by the Executive Committee was £20, with an addition of B5 for the removal of the stone, and J312 10s. for the luncheon, but of the latter item the sum of only £4 had been spent, owing to the generous action of the Palace Syndicate in entertaining half the guests, and paying half the wine bill. With regard to the big stone, it was stated that there were bills to hand amounting to £12 IDs., and that the traction engine account would be considerable. An animated discussion took place, and strong comments made on the heavy cost incurred. It was decided to refer the account in connection with the removal of the stone back to the Finance Committee to con- sider it in connection with the account for the traction engine, and a resolution was also passed directing that no further money should be spent on the stone until after the next meet- ing.
