There was a demonstration on Saturday, when a procession was formed, of children with banner and band, and an address. delivered by His Worship the Mayor of Conway. THE FORMAL OPENING. There was a large attendance at the opening ceremony on Monday afternoon. Lord Mostyn was to have presided, but was unable to be present. The chair was taken by the Rev. David Davies, pastor of the Tabernacle, Llan- dudno, and he was supported by Mr. William Jones, M.P., Rev. E. T. Davies, Colwyn Rev. John Raymond, Rev. J. Irvon Davies, Rev. T. Roberts (Llanelian), Rev. Evan Hughes (Llan- dudno), and several missionaries on whose be- half the Rev. J. R. M. Stephens was spokes- man. After the singing of the hymn "All hail the power of Jesu's name," the Rev. John Raymond engaged in prayer. The Chairman said they were exceedingly dis- appointed not to have Lord Mostyn in the chair #1..at day, but they were sure that his lordship's interest and sympathy was with them in that phase of Christ's work. They were, however, glad to see a representative of the House of Cbmimons—(applause),—but at this juncture of political affairs it would have been interesting to have the representatives of the Lords and Commons upon that platform. (Applause.) They were there to further the Gospel of Peace and Love. He supposed that Lord Mostyn was with them in spirit, and they must imagine him in the chair. The Rev. J. R. M. Stephens, late of Wathen, Secretary of the Bible Translation Society, said that it was sought to interest all the churches of Christ in the far-spread work of missionary enterprise. Mr. William Jones, M.P., who was received with much warmth, said that he was under the impression before he came that the only force that could bring the Lords and Com- mons together was a Baptist Missionary ExhiDi- tion. (Laughter and applause.) The speaker de- livered a fine, impassioned speech, brimmring with zeal and eloquence. In fact, it was gener- alfy commented that never had the popular Member delivered such a splendid address. It was interesting from start to finish and studded with brilliant thoughts and a spirit of religious fervour. He created a vivid impression when Ihe quoted Charles Darwin as having expressed himself after visiting a part of the globe where missionaries were not at work in, his young days, that so low had the people of that region sunk that he wouild sooner claim kinship with an npe than with the beings be had seen. But Darwin lived to see such a change that he commended the efficacy of the missionary movement. He (the speaker) would like to. see the man who would cynically regard missions in his presence. What about John Williams in the South Sea Islands and Dr. Griffith John? He was proud of missionary work in the Congo. Mr. and Mrs. Steplhens had been working in the Congo, and he hoped that Governments, by international arrangements, would settle the Congo, question. (Applause.) He hoped something would happen to the King of the Belgians, and the speaker trusted there would be a Christian King in his stead. (Applau se.) Mr. G. A. Humphrejrs proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. William Jones for his most ex- cellent address, which was full of solid, practi- cal common sense. (Applause.) It was no com- mon every-day address. The missionary work was a work they should all assist, and all branches of the Christian faith could help, a's they were doing in Llandudno. (Applause.) The Rev. E. T. Davies seconded, and it was carried with acclamation. The Rev. Mr. Stephens then introduced sev- eral of the missionaries and ex-missionaries up- on the pllatform amidst applause. Lectures will be delivered in the various courts by them dur- ing each day. Mrs. Ord Charter sang a very pleasing solo during the afternoon. Tuesday was termed Church of England Day, the opening ceremony being performed by the Rector (the Rev. LI. R. Hughes, M.A.), and the speakers were Mr. Arthur Evill, and the Rev. W. M. Roberts, M.A. In the evening the can- tata, The Ram's Sacrifice," and Brahmin Wedding were the attractions. Yesterday (Wednesday) was Welsh Calvinistic Methodist and Presbyterian Day, the President being the Rev. C. T. Astley, M.A., and the speaker the Rev. H. C. Lewis, B.A., B.D_
