THE FLORAL CONCERT.—In our report of this concert held at the Pier Pavilion, on Wed- nesday lait, we omitted to mention that the Col- wyn Bay Amateur Orchestra (under the conductor ship of Mr ilarnelt, had generously given their services. The items rendered by the orchestra were much appreciated, and Colwyn Bay is to be congratulated upon hav- ing such an excellent amateur institution. THE TOWN'S MEETING.—We regret that owing to their late- arrival and to exceptional pressure on our space we are obliged to hold over some interesting letters on Friday night s meeting.

CH,APEL.-We regret to find that omc name was omitted from our report of the recent tea party at Hermion, that of Mrs Williams, Cartref, King's-road, who kindly pro- vided one of the tables. THE FAMOUS CARNARVON CHOIR.—It is with much pleasure tihat we announce that the date which has been fixed for the visit of the celebrated London Eisteddfod Prize Choir, of Carnarvon, is Thursday, December 9th. It is hoped by the popular conductor, Mr John. Wil- liams, also the conductor of the Colwyn Bay Eisteddfod Choir, to have the full complement of 180 voices present,, and it goes without say- ing that a rare musical treat is in store for the residents of Colwyn Biay and neighbourhood. MESSRS. LEWIS & THOMPSON'S SALES. —Wonderful bargains are being offered by Messrs Lewis & Thompson at their two smiart establishments in Station-road, where a very suc- cessful sale is being conducted. The firm have gained a high reputation for quality and cheap- ness. 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. They are due at Conway on Saturday in the Welsh Amateur cup-tie, and Colwyn Bay supporters are hoping that the Gulls will have the best pos- sible eleven available. NANTYGLYN P.S.E.-On Saturday evening Mr T. G. Williams presided over a crowded at- tendance. The programme was sustained by several members of the Knights of the Road, assisted by friends. Mr James Burwell s Ter- ritorial March" was rendered, and the new song, Duty Call," was given for the first time in Colwyn Bay. The programme was thor- oughlv enjoyed. REV.

There was a large congregation to welcome Mr Josliu a at the first service on Sunday. On this day he received an inrvitation from India to hold a mission in that far awtay Continent. We understand this is the second invitation hekas received from that part of the world. On Tuesday evening Mr Joshua held a service for children at Rhiw C.M. chapel, before preaching at the English Presbyterian; Church. All the services have been well at- tended during the week. 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. The amount to. paid out was i'98. At the last Court the Judge adjourned the application in order that the aiWicant might be identified, and the advocate now produced the affidavit of the mother of the applicant, which proved that the applicant was 211 years of age, and was the person mentioned in the will.—His Honour now granted the request, and added that the costs of that application would be paid to the applicant. 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. LOCAL AMATEURS.—The newly-formed society has affiliated" to the National Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Association, and has chosen The Pirates of Penzance," which comic opera will be produced in April.

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.

SIDENT.-We regret to learn that Mrs Brown, of London House, Llanddulas, formerly of Ty Ucha', lies in an indifferent state of health.

All the helpers at the recent bazaar held for the same object were entertained to supper by Mr Hussey, of Bronygraig. Those who had par- ticipated in the work of the bazaar accepted the kindness of Mr Hussey, and full justice was done to the good thingls provided. There is a unity amongst those who. are helping the Church House movement, which augurs well for ulti- mate success, and the Rector is to be congratu- lated upon having such a willing band of work- ers.

Phillips, Mr. E. Bloomer, and Mr. Edgar Evans. JOURNALISTS IN WONDERLAND.— The journalists of Llandudno seem to be divided as to the authorship of Alice in Wonderland," a book which was inspired by an incident witnessed at Llanriudno, by the Rev. Charles L. Dodgson. better known by his pen-name, Lewis Carroll." Last week one local paper correctly attributed the work to Lewis Carroll, but an opposition sheet boldly declared for a daughter of the late Dean Liddell. Perhaps [his latter claim may have originated in a communication from W. T. Stead's friend" Julia." Will the editor of "John Bull" please note ? PROMOTION.—Mr. Joseph Williams, for four years manager for Messrs. Wyman & Son's at their bookstall, Llandudno station, has been promoted to Chester station.

He leaves this week for his new sphere of labour, and will be succeeded by Mr. Smith, of R uncorn.

Ro- berts is the president, and a good programme has been arranged for the season, THE CHARITY ASSOCIA TION.-Few people are aware of the really good work which is done by this very necessary and useful organisation. The only thing that hampers its usefulness is the fact that it is crippled for want of sufficient funds. Mr. J. J. Marks and his enthusiastic wife make an appeal for funds to carry the work out effectively, and we trust that the appeal will not be heard in vain to the many philanthropic people residing in the town. The officers are Chairman, the Rector, the Rev. LI. R. Hughes the vice-chairman, Mr. Tonge; hon. sec., Mrs. Marks, and the hon. trea- surer, Mr. Gardener, N. P. Bank. BOY SCOUTS.—Boy-scouting has caught on in the town, and there is a capital company formed under the command of Captain A. Cooper, who is exceedingly popular with his men." Several in- structive excursions have been made by the young folk, who seem to thoroughly enjoy the health- ful and beneficial hobby. MR. BIRRELL'S RECENT VISIT.-The man- ner in which Mr. Birrell's meeting was arranged was a pattern of clever organisation, and the credit for that is due to our highly esteemed and enthusiastic townsman, Alderman Robert Roberts, to whom the work was a labour of love. We are pleased to learn that the Weekly News report of the event was so much appreciated that a large number of copies were dispatched by Mr. Roberts to Newcastle, Bel- fast, and other Irish towns and cities, as well as to the Metropolis. PROBABLE PURCHASE OF THE GREAT ORME TRAMWAY.—To-day (Thursday) the Ur- ban District Council in committee will have under consideration the question of the purchase of the Great Orme's Head Tramway. The undertaking has been a successful one since its inauguration, and there is a prevalent opinion that under the management of the Urban District Council further success can be achieved. WELSH NATIONAL LIBERAL COUNCIL.7 Much interest is being manifested in the town in the meeting which is to be held this week of the Executive of the Welsh Liberal Council at Shrews- bury, when Lord St. David's will preside. As the meeting takes place in week which wiil be mo- mentous in the history of the country, it is expect- ed that a plan of campaign will be formulated. Llandudno will be represented at the meeting. ANNIVERSARY SERVICES.—The Anniversary Services in connection with the English Wesleyan Mission Church in Craigydon were held on Sunday when there were large congregations at all the services. The pastor, the Rev. T. E. Ham, was the preacher. Special music was sung by the choir and a bright and happy day was spent by all who attended. The membership of the Church is increasing. CHILDREN'S REHEARSAL.—A rehearsal of English and Welsh Baptist Sunday School children was held at the Tabernacle Chapel on Sunday afternoon of the items to be sung at the opening of the Missionary Exhibition to be held at the Pier Pavilion on Saturday, and continued through the following week. On Saturday, a short address will be delivered by a missionary from the Congo. HISTORY OF BANGOR CATHEDRAL.—At a meeting of the Field Club held at Brig-y-Don, Gloddaeth-crescent, on Monday evening, under the presidency of Mr Morris Barnett, hon. lecture secretary, a learned paper was read by Mr J. Roger Dawson, upon Bangor Cathedral, and its Bishops, and its Deans historically considered." He traced the spiritual genealogy of the Bangor bishopric from the University at Bangor in the Forest of Maelor down to the present Bishop. He referred to the present Bishop as being the seventy- second since a complete record commenced to be made with Bishop Hervey. Mr Bezant Lowe and others asked some questions upon the learned paper, which had occupied forty minutes in delivery, and these were answered by the popular essayist. The remainder of the evening was spent in a talk" by Mr R. Thomas, illustrated by original drawings of the jelly-fish and other marine organism. SOCIAL AT THE COCOA HOUSE.—The cosy meeting room at the Mostyn-street Cocoa House presented a happy appearance on Friday evening, when it was hlled with ladies, members of Miss Lloyd's Bible Class in connection with the Adelphi-street Mission Room. The company had been invited by Mrs and Miss Lloyd to a social afternoon and evening. The meeting was a very enjoyable one, and gave great pleasure to the promoters. SATURDAY'S AMATEUR CUP-TIE.—Now that the Llandudno Amateurs Football team have returned to something like the form expected of them, much gratification was felt 011 Saturday when they were able to vanquish the Gulls of Colwyn Bay in the Senior Cup Tie of the North Wales Coast. The team has this season been lucky in draws, and on Saturday next the Roosters of Llanrwst will meet the Cormorants in a Welsh Amateur Cup-tie. As the Roosters will be able to put their full strength on the field in this tie, it behoves the Amateurs to rise the occasion and give a good account of themselves. The Roosters are bound to do so. THE SATURDAY POPS.We regret to learn that this excellent institution, which has flourished for several winters, has been abandoned, at least for this winter. The good that was done as a result of the gatherings was inestimable, and there are many that will regret their abandonment. At the same time it is as well to make known that the efforts of the promoters, and the splendid work I tf Mr W. H. Squirrell, did not receive the apprecia- ion they should have done, such as expecting too I much for the nimble penny by way of novelty upon novelty, and change upon change, when the whole of the talent and resources of the town had been exhausted. A RECKLESS RAILWAY PASSENGER.— It is strange to observe the great hurry in which some passengers endeavour ro leave trains whilst in motion. A foolish example of this kind was seen on Friday evening, when a comparatively young woman was observed opening the door of a train coming at a fair speed into the bay from the Junction, and attempting to alight on the plat- form She fell headlong on the platform and roiled over, and only for the promptness of a man who was near she would have got crushed by the train. Such reckless acts are not uncommon, and little sympathy can be extended such fool- hardy people, when they know the risks they run. THE BRANCH LIBRARIES. The branch libraries opened at Dyffryn-road and Craigydon are experimental, and it is pleasing to learn that good results are accruing from the consideration the Council has shown in establishing what has proved of great benefit to the districts concerned. A PROMISING YOUNG SINGER.-We are pleased to observe that Mr. John Roberts, son of the Llandudno Piermaster, Captain John Roberts, of Ash Grove, North Madoc-street, shows talent as a vocalist far above the average. Young Mr. Roberts has an unassuming manner and a pleasing presence, and a voice that is both melodious and rich in baritone qualities. He quite delighted the audience at the Royal Hotel on Friday evening with his splendid singing of the nautical ballad, Anchored." We wish him every success. UNEMPLOYMENT.—Laudable efforts are being made by the town authorities to minimise as much as possible the number of unemployed men at this dull period of the year. We understand that after the Council have put in hand what is intended to be done there will be few men out of work. FUNERAL OF LANCE-CORPL. DOYLE.— The funeral took place on Wednesday last of Lance-Corporal W. Doyle, of the 1st Batt. Cold- stream Guards. It is some years since a military funeral was seen in the town, and hundreds of people witnessed the passing of the cortege.

I LLANDUDNO JUNCTION. CONCERT.—On Wednesday last a successful concert was held at the Broad-street Welsh Congregational Church in aid of the chapel funds. The chair was occupied by County Councillor Hugh Owen, Isfryn, senior deacon of the chapel, and amongst those present were the Mayor and Mayoress of Conway (Mr and Mrs John Williams). The concert was conducted by the Rev J. Luther Thomas, pastor. The special artiste engaged was Mr Owen Jones, of Ruthin, formerly of Cerrig-y- druidion. He is a tenor of marked ability, and the possessor of a melodious voice. He was in good form and encored. Mrs Price and her little daughter, Gwendoline, of Llangefni, were also well received, the singing of little Gwendoline showing the good training she had received from her mother. Miss Sallie Williams, of Bethel, Carnarvon, paid her first visit to this place, and quite charmed the audience with her pure and sympathetic soprano voice. She was loudly applauded for her pretty rendering of "The Cuckoo," and later was heartily encored for her splendid singing of The Holy City." We are sure Miss Williams will receive a cordial welcome upon her next appear- ance in this neighbourhood. Mr David Evans, Glan Conway, and Mr. Morris, headmaster at the Junction Council Schools, were the elocutionists, and both were encored.

QUEEN'S ROAD TRAFFIC.—Notwithstanding the heavy traffic that is carried along this newly formed road, which was in such a dreadful state for some years, it is gratifying to observe that the work of making the road has been of such a thorough and substantial nature that the heavy traffic has not in any way interfered with it.

The house was taken in October by de- fendant's wife, at a yearly rent of ;611, and three months' notice on each. side.
