THE RATEPAYERS MEETING.—A re- mark in our last week s report of the rate- pavers meeting should be explained because unfortunately, and much to our regret, it has been misunderstood bv some of our readers. We described Mr. R. Thomson, I. P., as being given "a mixed reception." It ought to be made quite clear that the nature of the reception was not due to any hostile feeling towards Mr. Thomson; it was due solely to the objection felt by a portion of the audience to the plan adopted of call- ing all the speakers in favour of the school first, thus delaying the speeches of Mr. Adamson, Mr. Johnstone, Rev. Peter Jones, and others who desired to express their views on th" other side. It is well known that Mr. Thomson is personally very popular and highly esteemed in the town, and but for the fact that he was called upon to speak for the motion at a time when a section of the audience was clamouring to hear the opposition, his reception would have been very cordial.

THE UNITED TEMPERANCE MIS- SION.—The mission conducted by the noted temperance orator, Mrs. Jessie Walker, has proved a great success. Be- tween fifty and sixty total abstinence pledges were taken, and the lady's lectures have caused a stimulus amongst the various temperance societies in the town. Her lecture on Friday upon what she saw and heard in Canada was particularly inter- esting. EVANGELISTIC SERVICES.—On Sun- day evening a week of special services was inaugurated at the Nant-y-glyn English YVesleyan Church, conducted by the Rev. T. E. Freeman. The services will be con- tinued throughout the week at 7.30 p.m. The subjects treated were the relation exist- ing between religion and man.
