Defendant pleaded not guilty.— P.C. Owen and P.C. Davies gave evidence, and in reply to the defendant denied that they ill- used him when he was taken to. the police sta- tion. The defendant made a long statement, in which he stated that he simply asked P.C. Owen why he was following his father about when he had had a glass or two. A fine of 5 s. and costs was imposed.—Defendant's father, Hugh Owen, was charged with' a similar offence on the HIth November in Berry-street. P.C. Owen proved finding the defendant fighting and using filthy language. He was sent home, but later on wit- ness saw him coming from the railway station, and he commenced cursing witness. Defendant wanted to know why the man he was fighting with was not brought up, and the witness re- plied that the other man was sober, and de- fendant was the aggressor. Owen also made a long statement, in the course of which he made a charge against P.C. Owen that he was taking advantage.—The Deputy Chief Constable said there were 20 convictions against this defendajDt in different parts of Anglesey and Carnarvon- shire, and during his 18 months' stay at Con- way he had been before the magistrates six times.

George Hitchin, the licensee of the house, said that the defendant was re- fused drink when. he entered the house, and he was asked to leave, but refused, and witness had to put him. out. Shortly afterwards he returned and struck a blow at the barman, but missed, and he then picked up all the glasses he could find on the bar counter and threw at witness and the barman. Witness took him out of the house, and with the assistance of the barman took him up the street and handed him to Sergt. Evans. This officer also gave evidence that Roberts was struggling violently with the two men.—Mr. Chamberlain here admitted that de- fendant was drunk and refused to quit. De- fendant was called, and he said he returned to Conway from. Llandudno about 7 p.m. He had three glasses of beer at the George and Dragon, and! was then told that he had had enough, and he went out. Seeing the door of the Liverpool Arms open he went in a got a glass of beer from the barman. Whilst in conversation with a woman, Hitchin came in. and ordered him out. Defendant said something in reply, and Hitchin then pushed him against the c-ouniter and knocked him about, drawing blood.

The defendant was fined ios. and costs on each charge, and was was ordered to pay the amount of the damage.

A TRIP TO THE CANARY ISLANDS.— There was a record attendance at the weeikly meeting of the Carmel literary society on Mon- day night, presided over by Mr Owen Ervans. The evening was devoted to addresses by Messrs John, Roberts, Emu Restaurant, and Elias Jones, Post Office, on A Trip to the Canary Islands."

Griffiths, awaited the London mail at Conway Station, end met Mr Alexander Ure, K.C., M.P., Lord Advocate of Scotland, who was returning from an enthusiastic meeting which he had held at Pwllheli that day. The deputation were oordi- ally received by the Minister, and although with only a minute or two to spare, ne explained that the cause of his non-appearance at the meeting which he had arranged to hold at Conway was due entirely to a three hours' block on the line, but he would promise to pay us a visit, although he could give no definite date without consulting the Chairman of his Association in Edinburgh. He was given a hearty send oil by a few of the stalwart Liberals who had gleaned that he was passing through. CHRISTMAS MEAT.—The local butchers w,ere very busy on Tuesday purchasing Christ' mas fat istook at the Talycafn Christmas sale. Messrs Jones Bros., High-street, were fortunate in securing, amount others, the champion beast, and Messrs Joseph T.

Jones was awarded the auctioneer's prize for being the largest purchaser of stock at the Mart during the past year. TONTINE SOCIETY.—The Conway Tontine Society has had a most successful year, and the dividend, which will be paid each member on the ZIISIt inst., amounts to _r,, 2s. 8d., less 26. for I reserve fund.

A discussion fol- lowed in which several members took part. MR. LLOYD GEORGE.—Very few of the burgesses of Conway were aware that their dis- tinguished member of the Government was passing through the ancient town on Saturday afternoon on his way to his home at Criccieth, where he intended spending a few days' rest. Several members of the Liberal Association, however, were fortunate in meeting the right train, which stopped at Conway at 3.29. The Chancellor, who wore a cheery smile, and upon seeing his supporters, came to the window 01 his carriage, and was given a hearty reception. He at once asked the gentlemen in Welsh 11 they were ready for the battle, and when re- plied that they were quite ready, if he would promise them a little assistance, he laughingly replied I am afraid you will have to fight the battle without me this time. I am obliged to go and preach unto the Gentiles." The train afterwards steamed off, and the .gallant Chancel- lor was lustily cheered by a fairlv large crowd who had gathered around the carriage door. GRAND CONCERT.—In the face of terrible weather which prevailed on I nursday night, the Town Hall was packed on the occasion of a grand concert given by the Royal Moelwyn Male Voice Choir, of which Mr Cadwaladr Roberts, J.P., is the veteran conductor. The choir is travelling about North Wales for the purpose of raising funds in order to proceed on a four months' tour in the United States. Complains w.ere to be heard that the arrangements of the Town Hall wera not what thev should be, and persons with front seat tickets, who naturally expected1 to find a seat just before the concert commenced, were disappointed, and told that all seats had .been taken by the second seat holders. In the absence of the Mayor, who was suffering from indisposition, Mr J. P. Griffiths took the chair, and Bryfdir, Festiniog, was a very capable conductor of the meeting. The choir gave some spirited renderings, the chief of which was the Italian Salad, which fairly brought down the house. Miss Mary King- Sarah also captivated the large audience with her excellent renderings. Other artistes who ac- quitted themselves creditably were Mr J. Coris Jones, Dolgelley; Mr J. E. Williams, and Mr Ted Jones. The penillion sinking by Mr E. Ffesttin Jones, and accompanied on the harp by Miss Jennie Parry (Telynores Lleifiad), was very highly appreciated, and the duett, Tell me, gentle stranger," by Miss King-Sarah and Mr Ffesttin Jones, was vociferously encoried. Miss A. E. Owen-Dajvies. A.R.G.M., was a very efficient accompanist. The concert, on the whole, was one of the rare musical treats to be heard in Conway. During an interval, Mr J. P. Griffiths spoke a few words of encouragement to the choir. FOOTBALL.—On Saturday, Bangor Reserves, who so thoroughly trounced the Gulls on Satur- day last, are due at the Morfa, Conway, when it is hoped that a most interesting' game will be witnessed.

Jones & Bros., "Weekly News" Office, Colwyn Bay. MR. LLOYD GEORGE AND A LOCAL MINISTER.—Mr Lloyd George passed through Colwyn Bay 0111 his way to Criccieth, by the 3.15 p.m. train on Saturday. It was not gener- ..al'ly known that the right hon. gentleman was travelling by that train, and so. no. cheering crowds had assembled at the stations en route— nor yet any suffragettes! Mr Lloyd George occupied a private saloon, carriage, and was ac- companied1 by Sir Osmond Williams,. At Ban- gor he was greeted by the Rev. J. WTesley Hughes, who had travelled from Colwyn Bay by the same train, and espied the Chancellor .through the window. Later, in conversation with our representative, Mr Hughes said he had been acquainted with Mr Lloyd George for over twenty years, and a few years ago at Criccieth. Mr Lloyd George presented him with his photo- graph. Mr Hughes now expressed himself as much struck by the altered appearance of the ChianceMor, who has gone very grey. Mr Lloyd George chatted gaily about his new bungalow which he is to occupy for the hrst time—in con- nection with which our readers will re-call the recent attempt of the Conservatives to disfran- chise hiim. Upon. Mr Hughes congratulating him on his address at the National Liberal Club on Friday, and declaring it was the finest he had ever delivered, Mr Lloyd George replied with a merry twinkle in his eyes Do you think so?" Mr. Hughes is convinced that the Chan- cellor is Off the Siame opinion. AN EXCITING CONTEST.—A social gather- ing in connection with the Liberal Association will be held in the Lecture Haill on Friday even- ing of next week, and promises to be the most interesting of the series. A special feature will be a mock election," in which three of the most rousing speakers of the Association will be the Conservative, Liberal, and Labour candi- dates respectively. Unfortunately for the pic- turesqueness of the proceedings, no Suffragette interruptions are anticipated, as all the ladies "will be allowed to vote. BRONYNANT WESLEYAN CHAPEL.Our paragraph of last week relating to the Bible Class did not accurately state the subject for study, which should be given as The Journeys of St. Paul." CHRISTMAS GIFTS TO GENTLEMEN.— Best brards of cigars, .cigarettes, and tobaccos. Calabash and briar pipes. Pouches, cigar and ■cigarette cases, and smokers' requisites.—E. Needtham, 16, Station-road, Colwyn Bay. THE CARNARVON CHOIR.—Much interest is being evinced in the visit of the Carnarvon Prize Choir at the London Eisteddfod, on Thurs- day next, the 16th inst. The date originally fixied was to-day (Thursday), but owing to the visit of the Right Hon. D. Lloyd George to Carnarvon, on that day it was decided to post- pone the event owing tQ the fact that the mem- ibers of the choir were desirous of hearing the distinguished. Welshman whose home is so near to Carnarvon. Therefore, all those who de.i. to hear Welsh choral singing to perfection should not fail to attend the Pier Pavilion on Thurs- day next. The beauty and grandeur of the county town's choir's singing can only be esti- mated by a personal visit, and we trust that Mr John Williams and his faithful choir will have a crowded house to meet them-. DEATH OF A MINI,S,TER.-The death took place at Wolfholme, Erskine-road, Colwyn Bay, on Saturday, of the Rev. Thomas Jenkins, at the age of 58 years. Mr. Jenkins had come to Colwyn Bay many years, ago. for the berjefit of his health.. The funeral took place on Tuesday .a,t Bronynanlt Cemetery. T.A.A. CONCERT.—We are pleased to under- stand that the net sum of £ 25 odd will be avail- able for the funds of the Association as the re- sult of the concert held on Wednesday last at the Pier Pavilion, which is considered satisfac- tory.

ANCIENT BARDS OF BRITAIN.—Mr Hugh Owen (Oxford House), one of the vice-presi- dents, ocouipied the chair at Thursday evening's meeting of the Rhiw C.M. literary society. Mr Fred Griffiths read a paper dealing briefly with the Gorsedd and the history, philosophy and re- ligion of the Druids, the subject having been chosen in view of next year's National Eistedd- fod at Colwyn Bay. The subject was discussed by Mr J. Alun Jones (Ceylon Stores), Mr Francis Hughes (Gronwien), Mr and Mrs Lloyd (Douglas House;), Mr Hugh Owen (Llys Powell), Mr R. P. Bowen (Myrddin), the Chairman, and others. There was also a feeling expressed that the man- ner in which Welsh history is taught in the day schools is unfair to this country. BROTHERHOOD.—A well-attended meet- ing of the Colwyn Bay Brotherhood was held art the English Congregatdonial Church on Sunday, when a stirring address was given by Mr R. Thomson, J.P., who. spoke on the topic, Is life worth living?" Mr W. Jones presided, and the soloist was Mr George Wadge. GEORGE MULLER."—On Tuesday even. ing, at the Tabernacle Welsh Baptist chapel, one of the most interesting lecturas given in Coliwy.^ Bay for many years was delivered by the Rev. E. T. Tones, of Llanelly, on George Miiller." The life of the wonderful philanthropist, whose model homes are at Bristol, was well treated by the learned lecturer. George Miiller's faith in God was so implicit that when in need he always praved that the need might be supplied, and the prayer had never failed him. Mr James Am- phlett occupied the chair, and there was a good attendance. NANT-Y-GLYN P.IS.E.-AnotheT excellent programme was given at the Nant-y-Glyn Pleaisiant Saturday Evening entertainment, on Saturday, when there was a large audience.

Company of the 5th Battalion R.W.F. to form a bugle band, such as the one that was the proud boast of local Volunteers be- fore Mr. Haldane's scheme caused its abandon- ment by reason of numerous withdrawals from the ranks of the company. The chief difficulty appears to be the securing of a room for prac- tices. as it is felt that the pleasure of the as- sembly at the animated pictures might be greatly marred were the room which was originally used for this purpose and which is situate under the Public Hall again made to serve. Mr. P. Gimson, who has rendered numerous much ap. preciated services to G. Company, has kindly consented to act as musical conductor, and he has also been appointed secretary. A few more bugles are required, and subscriptions may be sen'" to him at Ellesmere, Colwyn Bay. The band, will consist of twenty-one performers. EISTEDDFOD PAVILION SITE.—We understand that the proposed site at Pendorlan. has been found unsuitable for various reasons, and that in consequence it will, in all proba- bility, be abandoned in favour of a plot of land not far distant on the eastern side. IRISH 'HUMOUR AT THE PAVILION.— The third of the series of extension lectures will be held at the Victoria Pavilion next Tues- day evening, when the Rev.

ABERGELE. A FLOURISHING TONTINE.—During the past three years, owing to, the energies of Mr R. Pickup (president), Mr Edward Williams, J.P. (chairman), and Mr Arthur P. Leigh, the inde- fatigable secretary, the Abergele Tontine Society is in a very flourishing condition.. The (membership has now reached the grand total of 227, and a divide of £ 1 per head will shortly be distributed, thereby bringing with it the pro- spects of a happy Yuletide during the present quiet state of things. It is expected that there will be another substantial increase of members during the coming year, and there is no doubt but that the society is a great boan, to the work- ing man.
