BUILDING DEVELOPMENTS AT THE WEST END.—The development in building operations in the West end* of the town has of late been remarkable. Villas, detached and semi-detached, of splendid architectural design, are being erected, and are quite worthy of their beautiful surroundings. A local contractor has instructions to erect a mansion with thirteen bedrooms and a number of entertaining rooms. SINGING IN BANGOR CATHEDRAL—Her Colwyn Bay fri-endis will be pleased to learn that Miss Marjorie Dunning sang in Bangor Cathe- dral on Monday, upon the occasion of an orgam. recital which was being given by Dr. Rioland Rogers, organist.

Williams, pastor. THE GULLS FOR MORFALAND.-Th,e 'Colwyn Bay football team, were unfortunate on Saturday in being decisively beaten- in the Coast Senior cup-tie. There is a weakness somewhere, for the display given by the Gulls in recent matches has been most unsatisfactory.

PUBLIC HALL PICTURES. To-night (Thursday) and on Friday and Saturday then* will be projected on the screen at the Public 'Hall, in. addition to the ordinary miscellanous programme, over 2,000 feet of film picturing the ■famous glove light between Summers and Welsh for the light weight championship of England, which was held at the National Sporting Club on the 8th instant. The fight, an unparalleled event, was considered, by experts the cleanest and neatest exhibition of boxing seen for many years., These pictures are of absorbing interest to sporting enthusiasts and all patriotic Welsh- men. This week's programme of pictures is again most interesting. The well-known piece, <t&Ma"da," has been utilised for a new item. Tbetre is no need to give details, except to say tihat by the aid of first-class actors, good stag- ing, &c., a splendid film has been the result. An intensely interesting series is The Boyhood of Vidocq," showing the galley slaves of that per- iod. A visit to Bombay is an. educational set of beautifully-coloured animated photo- graphy, giving a panorama, of the town, prin- cipal streets, and temples. The colouring is ltTuly magnificent. William Ratcliffe is v, novel in pictures as full of love, adventure, and tragedy as any six shilling novel. The Talis- man shows that a "Sitolen" horseshoe does not bring good luck." A race for an in- hedta,noe" is a screamer. Uncle leaves his for- tune to the first of his two nephews to marry. The efforts of the two to find a wife cause roars of laughter. In another subject it is shown that the road to the heart of am intended father-in- law is through his stomach. Timid lovers de- sirous of escaping the contamination of papa's big feet, please note. A charming romantic love story is The Gipsy Lover. Otiher laughter- makers are The Monkey's Excursion" and The Man who couldn't sit down." A YOUNG MAN'S LEGACY.—Before His Honour Judge Moss, at Llanrwst County Court on Friday, Mr Latimer Jones (of Messrs Porter, Amphleitt & Co.) resumed his application on be- half of Thomas Arthur Roberts, 14, Erw Wen- road, Colwyn Bay, to have his share of a legacy left him by his late father, who lived at Pen- craig, Roe Wen.

EXTENSION LECTURE. On Tuesday evening, in the Pier Pavilion, Mr Spencer Leigh Hughes (" Sub Rosa of the Morning Lead- er ") delivered a lecture on Parliament from the Press Gallery." Mr C. E. Eleock occupied the chair in the regretted absence of Mr Walter Whitehead. Mr Hughes's address was full of humour, and his amusing references to the quaint incidents of Parliamentary life were much enjoyed by the large audience. Mr Hughes mentioned that although Englishman were in the habit of looking upon Parliament as a British institution ,yet it must be remembered that an alien emigrant in the person of Simon de Montfort first conceived the idea of an elec- tive chamber. Parliamentary reporting existed long before the so-called Mother of Parliaments, for Plutarch mentioned verbatim reporters who took accounts of the proceedings in the Roman Senate. The lecturer paid an eloquent tribute to the memory of Mir Gladstone, whom he de- clared to be the finest stfatesman he had seen throughout his nineteen years in the Gallery. The lecture attained a high level of excellence, being as entertaining as it was instructive. The Chairman mentioned the fact that Mr Hughes has a brother who is a pupil at Rydal Mount School.

Robert Ru- berts presided, on Tuesday evening, at the Ent- gedi literary society's meeting. Mr J. O. Davies delivered an address on the great Welsh poet, Twm o'r Nant." The fact that Mr Davies is so conversant with all matters concerning Welsh literature drew a numerous audience. Much was expected, and the expectations were more than realised. Mr Davies gave a magnificent address, which was listened to with keen appre- ciation and delight. The thorough knowledge of the subject, the interesting way of presenting the matter, and the beautiful Welsh in which it was presented, combined to make a thoroughly successful address. Extracts from the poet's work were read by members of the audience. On the motion of Dr. Morris Jones, seconded, by Mr Llewelyn Williams, a hearty vote of thanks'was accorded to Mr Davies.
