THE RICHARD CONWAY MEMORIAL.—A movement is on foot to establish a memorial to the late Mr. Richard Conway, C.C., who was for a considerable period, over half a century, one of the pioneers of Llandudno as a health resort. Mr Conway was close upon completing thirty-five years' service as people's warden of the parish when he died, and it was intended to celebrate the event in a worthy manner had Mr. Conway lived to complete that period. A meeting was held in the St. George's Church Room on. Friday evening, presided over by the Rector (the Rev. Ll. R. Hughes), and amongst those present were Dr. Dalton, J.P., the Rector's warden, and Mr. Nathan, Jones, the people's warden.

As at present arranged, a brass memorial tablet will be placed in St. George's -Church, and other things, should the funds allow, will be undertaken to perpetuate the memory of one who spent 55 years of an active life in the interests of the town of his adoption. PERSONAL.—Much regret was occasioned in the district by the tidings of the death, at the ripe age of 82 years, of Miss Sarah Dawson, sister of Mrs. Mary Dawson, Tower View, which occurred at her residentoe, 2, Guilford Lawn, Dover, on November 25th. The late Miss Daw- son, although residing in Dover, did not limit her benefar-tioigs to that district, but was ever ready to support any movement that appealed to her. (She was a liberal subscriber to the Railway Mission Room at Llandudno Junction, which on Sundays was put at the disposal of the English Presbyterians, who ultimately built a church of their own. She at one time sub- scribed to the Congo Institute (now the African Institute), at Colwyn Bay, and was very gener- ous in sending parcels of tea, sugar, &c., for the old women, and sweets for the children at the Conway workhouse, and needless to say the recipients appreciated the gifts all the more be- cause of their having been sent from such a long distance away. Many charitable institu- tions will miss hear kindly aid. The interment took place on St. Andrew's Day in the family grave in Highgate Cemetery, London, where her parents and younger sister had been laid to rest long years before, the officiating clergy be- ing the Revs. J. A. Armstrong and Clarence Gill. The chief mourners were Mr J. Roger Dawson (nephew), Mr. T. B. Bishop (nep hew-in-law), Dr. Maxwell, Mr H. W. Mowle, and Mr H. V. Headerley. There were also at the graveside Miss S. Powell (cousin), Mrs. Elizabeth Berry (niece), Mrs. Berry (junior), Mrs. Annie Butler and Miss Rhind. The undertaking arrangements were efficiently carried out by Messrs. Flashman and Co., at Dover, and by Mr. F. Butler, Chel- sea, in London, the latter's firm having under- taken the Dawson interments in Highgate Ceme- tery since 1855. DEATH OF MR.

Williams & Son to our representative, I am not particularly concerned as to the re- sult of the General Election. The voters may demand Protection but we are not in need of any kind of protection ourselves, because we confidently rely upon the merits of our produc- tions. Weekly News readers are well aware of our reputation in this respect, and to them and all their friends we offer a cordial in- vitation to inspect our special Christmas show of novelties. This will be continued for the next few days, an especially attractive feature .being the articles of evening wear." As all the world and his wife well know, Messrs W. S.

THIRD TIME OF ASKING !-On Saturday j afternoon, on the Council Ground, for the third time, Llandudno Amateurs will meet Llanrwst in [ the Welsh Amateur Cuptie. The two previous encounters having ended in a draw of one goal each, it is presumed Saturday's match will be played to a finish. The display of Llandudno at Llanrwst was very encouraging, and the Cor- morants hope on this occasion to put the issue beyond doubt. The Llandudno committee should receive every financial support from their sup- porters on Saturday, as the two previous contests were financial failures owing to the wretched weather. LICENSING.—At the Conway Police Court on Monday the applications of Mr. R. S.
