Colwyn Bay Ratepayers' Meeting. MR. ADAMSOX'S FIGURES. To the Editor of THE WEEKLY NEWS. Sir,-Tn the account of the ratepayers' meeting on the 8th inst. by a contemporary I am correctly reported as saying:—"Why- should two schools be given to 20,000 people while there was only one school at Wrexham? ,f. X T 1. 2 1 -H) Jlllll UPlUl, lur 1 iiaa nui coinpieTeQ my sertence, is also reported Rev. Thos. Lloyd: State the case cor. rectly, please. There are two schools at Wrexham. Try to be fair and not mislead the meeting. There are about 15,000 people in Wrexham." I am sure you will allow me to state what on further enquiry I find to be the cts-the population of Wrexham at the consus of 1901 was over 48,000; the popula- tion of Colwyn Bay and Abergele over 14,000 The present population of Wrexham will be not far short of 58,000, and the growth of Colwyn Bay and Abergele will probably reach nearly 20,000. Wrexham is the centre of a very large population Col- wyn Bay is not. With respect to my state. ment, for which it seems I courteously though needlessly apologised, viz., the one County School at Wrexham, I extract the following from the Liverpool Courier" of November nth, where it reads:—"Mr. J. E. Powell, the Chairman of the Joint Edu- cation Committee, who is also the Chair. man of Governors of the Wrexham County School, lately remarked that he was glad the original intention to split the Wrexham district into two for County School pur- poses had not been carried out. The suc- cess of the Wrexham County School had proved the wisdom of the policy of having one strong, efficient school, instead of two weaker and less efficient schools." On the face of these remarks I leave the public to judge as to whether I misled the meeting. I am, &c., Jos. W. ADAMSON. Colwyn Bav. November I5"th, IQTO.
