r- LOCAL NEWS. DISTINGUISHED VISITORS.—Among the distinguished visitors staying at the- Grand .Hotel are Sir Richard and Lady Musgrave, Sir jHarry and Lady North, the- Dowager Lady Salt .and party, Herr Backhaus, Madame Ella Rus- sell, Herr Kubelik, and Mr H. B. Irving. BROKEN OUT' AGAIN.—Mrs Julia Clarke, .after a brief abstention' from intoxicating liquors, has evidently broken out again, for at Llandudno Police Court on Monday she was fined 5s. and ccsts on tA-o charge of drunken- ness, the offences being committed on July 26th and August 7th.—Superintendent Rees said the police had made thorough enquiries, and ascertained she had not been served in any public house.—It might be a good thing for Mrs Clarke, who is possessed of independant means, if the. women who are known to pro- cure drink for her were brought up for aiding .and abetting if such a course can be taken. CHILDREN'S SPECIAL, SERVICE MISSION AT LLANDUDNO.—The usual holiday service, have been held during the past weeks on the Beach (opposite the Imperial (Hotel) every week-d" and in the Happy Valley on Sunday. Dr. Jays, C.M.S., of Northern Nigeria, on Fri- day last addressed a huge missionary meeting on the shore, his message being pray, pay, preach. In the Happy Valley nearly 2,000 peo- ple heard Mr Edmund Carte show the children in his telling way how they might be really free. On Monday a lantern service was held, which—despite the high wind-was completely successful, some of the children's designs being very effective. Dr. Hertslet,, the missionary for this week, on Friday, told a large audience his experiences under the South African General Mission in Natal and Zululand. An even more comprehensive programme has been arranged for next week. "THE DAIRYMAIDS."—An exceptional treat will be provided for theatre-goers in Llandudno next week, when Mr Robert. Courtneidge's Company will appear for the first time, at the Grand Theatre, in the great London musical production, "The Dairymaids, which ran for many nights at the Apollo Theatre, London, where it was witnessed by His Majesty the King, who was so highly amused at the antics of the irresponsible handyman (Joe Mivens a splendid character), and the irrepressible young squire. The authors of the book, Mi- Robert Courtneidge and Mr A. M. Thompson, have given us in "The Dairymaids," a very coherent plot, the incidents leading up to a series of ludicrous entanglements that keeps an audience in a humorous mood throughout this bright and witty musical comedy, which has been exceedingly popular wherever produced. The piece will be given on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We feel sure this exceedingly bright entertainment will meet with a fitting reception. CYCLING ACCIDENT ON TYNYCOED HILL.—The steep and narrow hill leading into Llanrhos was the scene of another accident on Wednesday morning, the third during the cur- rent month. On this occasion, Thomas Roberts, Clifton Road, Llandudno, insurance agent, was .riding down the hill on his bicycle, and in avoiding collision with a landau and motor car, was thrown off his machine, and his head coming into contact with the wall he was ren- dered unconscious. Roberts was under the im- pression that he had been struck by the car, but John Roberts, driver of the iLandau, is ,emphatic in asserting that the motor car pulled up before reaching Roberts, who after being ministered to by the owners of the car was con- veyed in another vehicle to the Sarah Nicol .CoOttage Hospital. Fortunately his injuries were not as serious as first thought, and after the wounds had been dressed he was allowed to go home. MOTOR CAR OVERTURNED ON PENRHYN HILL.—The steep Penrhyn Hill, just outside Llandudno, was the scene on Sunday afternoon of an exciting motor car accident. The driver ,of a car, which is believed to have come from Southport, ,commenced to descend the hill without first having applied his brakes. The car went down hill at a great rate, and to make- matters worse the driver ob- served a cab going down the- hill in front of him and a trap coming up, and he had to choose between running into the roadside or into the vehicle. He chose the former alterna- tive, with the result that the car was com- pletely overturned and its occupants, to the number of three or four, including a child, were thrown out. Fortunately only one person, a man, was anything like seriously injured, and he was conveyed to Llandudno with a broken arm. The car was so badly damaged that it was two hours before it was righted and able, to' proceed upon its journey towards Colwyn Bay. A CHURCHMAN'S OPINION OF "LEAH .KLESCHNA."—In relation to the return visit •of "Leah Kleschna" next Monday, Tuesday .and Wednesday to the Prince's Theatre, the opinion of a prominent Divine, whom Messrs Armitage and Leigh had invited to witness the performance at the- King's Theatre, London, will be interesting:—"I was able to avail my- self of your kindness, and I took two ladies with me to see "Leah Kleschna." We all en- joyed it so much. To say it is a good play is hardly enough. The ladies wept at the .pathetic parts, and I was very much impressed. I think you are making a right move in stag- ing such plays with such a moral attached, and I hope it will help to educate the public to care for the outcast and the' fallen ones. There is too much vindictive justice. Wishing you every success in your praiseworthy efforts to strike a happier note for those who have sinned and yet are not beyond redemption. Again thanking you." Messrs Armitage and Leigh are, and have always been avowed pre, .senters of plays that make for good only. Wit- ness their other play, "Lucky Durham" (which is at the Prince's Theatre, August 22nd, for three nights). The Company presenting "Leah Kleschna." is without exception one of the most powerful now touring, including as it does such well-known artistes as Bessie Rignold, William Clayton, Campbell Goldsmid, Hamil- ton Deane, and William F. Grant, as Paul Sylvaine. GAS METER TOO FAST.—W. T. Parker, The ■ Creamery, wa,s sued at Llandudno Police Court on Monday for the balance of gas account, amounting to £5 16s. 4d.—Mi J. E. Hallmark represented defendant, who alleged that the gas meter was defective, and that he was over- charged.—Mr A. Conolly, for the Llandudno Council, admitted that tests had proved that the meter was 3.9 fast on February 6th. 2.56 on May 7th, and 3.73 on July 23rd.—Evidence in support of the claim was given by Hugh Evans, rate collector, and of the testing of the ,meter (which was taken away from the Creamery C'n January 29th.—Mr Walter Shadbolt said dry meters did sometimes go fast owing to the shrinking of the leather inside.—In reply to Mr .Hallmark, witness said it was not likely that a meter registering 3.9 fast on February. 6th would be 10 per cent fast a few days -e;arlier.-For the defendant Mr Hallmark sub- mitted that Mr Parker's gas bills amounted to ,on an average between iP,2 and R,3 per quarter, and that when he was presented with a bill fcr treble the amount, knowing that he had not used more than usual in his business, he de- clined to pay.—Mr Parker having given evi- dence as to the amount of gas used by him and for what purpose, an order for payment was made, subject to 7s. 6d. being deducted re- presenting the amcunt overcharged. "BELLE OF MAYFAIR" AT THE GRAND 'THEATRE.—It is not easy to say anything new about a musical comedy. The success of "The Belle of Mayfair," however, is undoubtedly ,due to the fact that the quality is good all round, and Mr Leslie Stuart has treated us to some of the prettiest and freshest music that has been heard in musical comedy for a long time. Mr Milton Bode is sending a very strong company to the Grand Theatre next Mondav. "Tuesday and Wednesday. Taken altogether it will be an unusually attractive performance, and should draw good houses. The part of "The "Belle" willI be played by Miss Queenie Finnis, who 'will be heard in several very catchy songs. Miss Agnes Sandy as Princess is winsome and clever, and is a vocalist of undoubled merit. Miss Nelly Cozens will be seen as Lady Ross- lyn. and will also appear as the Gibson Girl. and sing the famous song, "Why do they call me a Gibson Girl." Mr Harry Parker as Sir John ChaEclicDte- has a part, which is said to suit him admirably, and he keens the audience in a merry mood. The Earl of Mount Highs-ate will be played by Mr Haddon Cave. Mr Fern Pounds as Raymond Finchley. Mr Gwvn AlKvvn as Hugh Meredith, all contribute to the general success of the plav. The piece will be handsomely mounted and dressed, and the chorus is said to be a very strone one. and to' 'support- the principals very creditably.

Fatal Accident to a Master Plasterer. An inquest was held on Thursday afternoon by Mr Pentir Williams and a jury, of which Councillor iH. Wilson was elected, foreman, into the circumstances attending the death of Mr William Williams, a well-known master plasterer, residing in Craigydon, which had fol- lowed an accident, sustained while following his occupation at the new houses being erected for Mr J. O. Thomas, J.P., in Church Walks, Robert Williams, labourer, 4, Mona Terrace, Penrhynside, identified the body as that of his brother, who was 48 or 49 years of age, and said he was working at the same place when the accident occurred, and saw his brother fall. Witness was working on the ground floor at the time, and could not say how the accident happened, but he saw his brother's leg between two joists and heard his shout at the bottom. His brother had contracted for the plastering work together with another man, named Pierce Jones, and paid the men their wages, but he did not know whether out of his own money or whose. His brother was able to speak when he got to him, but could not move. His brother, he believed, was coming down a plank from the second to the first landing and missed his footing, the distance of the fall being about 13 feet. John Jones,, joiner, Belgium Cottages, de- scribed the accident, from which it appeared that deceased was coming down the plank and missed his footing, facing from the second landing to the first and then to the ground floor. The plank was perfectly sound. Dr. James Sloan, locum tenens for Dr. Ken- rick Davies, gave medical evidence, showing the cause of death to be fracture of the base of the skull and spinal injury, either of which would have proved fatal. The jury having returned a verdict of acci- dental death. Councillor Wilson moved a vote of sympathy with the family, saying that he had known deceased and his wife for-21 years, and had never met a more honourable, straightforward man in Wales, an eKpression in which the jury heartily concurred.

CORRESPONDENCE. PUBLIC CLOCK WANTED. To the Editor- Dear Sir Sir,—As a visitor to your beautiful neighbourhood for some twenty' years, it has often been a subject of surprise to me, that your enterprising Administrators have not pro- vided a public clock for the benefit of the numbers, especially of the young people, who do not carry a watch. I should say funds might easily be obtained from the visitors if they were asked. A good site, would be in the opening between the- South and. North Parades, along side the- promenade road.—Yours, etc., VISITOR.
PJJER PAVILION CONCERTS. I FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, PATRIOTIC CONCERT. This being the anniversary of the coronation of Their Majesties, King Edward and Queen Alexandra, a special programme of patriotic items had been arranged. The packed house rose to its feet and heartily joined in the National Anthem. Mr Payne announced a wel- come addition to the programme, an import- ant omission having been made, Ic,wing to the hurry of making arrangements, this was the j Coronation March. The full programme in- cluded selections, "Reminiscences of England," by Godfrey; Bonnisseau's Scotch Airs, "Robert Bruce" Asch's "British Patrol"; Partridge's Descriptive Scena, "Victory and Thanks- giving"; Myddleton's Irish Airs, "The Sham- rock" Amer's Highland Patrol, "Wee Macgregor": Bonnisseau's Welsh Airs, "Cam- i bria," and Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstances." Mr Turnpenny concluded a higkly successful week's engagement by singing Airlie Dix's "The Trumpeter," and Braham's "Death of Nelson," and gained very decisive enc-ores. At this concert, thanks to the forethought and generosity of some lady patrons of these con- certs, every member of the orchestra was sup- plied with a button-hole of red, white and blue flowers, and Mr Payne's music stand was also gaily decorated, and altogether it was a most pleasing and thoughtful innovation and appre- ciated by the audience and gentlemen of the orchestra alike. SATURDAY'S 14th SPECIAL CONCERT. Llandudno thanks to its excellent series of high-class morning and evening concerts at the j pier pavilion is placed in the highest rank of I public favour, and not only summer resorts in j Wales, but throughout the British Isles, all ( seaside places look oil with envious eyes at our success, a success which as taken many years' work to bring about. Any new-comers, and there must have been a few in the packed attend- ance at this evening's concert, must have been astounded at the excellence of the fare pro- vided, and we were not at all surprised when the second item, Rossini's "William Tell," was encored. ♦ HERR WILHELM BACKHAUS (PIANIST). This was the. third visit during the last few years of Herr Backhaus to the pavilion, and we shall content- 'ourselves by saying we have never heard him to better advantage. Tschai- kp'wsky's Concerto in B Flat Minor (No. 1) for piano and orchestra. 1. Allegro non troppo e molto niaetoso. 2. Andantino simplice—Prestis- simo. 3. Allegro con Fuoco. The performance occupied some thirty-five minutes, and was lis- tened to throughout with most marked atten- tion. It would require the pen of a master- hand to point o-ut all the beauties of such a masterly performance; no greater treat has ever been given at the pier concerts in our memory. What an ovation followed; we doubt very much if there, ever has been in the pavil- ion a more hearty or prolonged applause meted out to any artiste. There is only one word for it, "Terrific." Herr Backhaus after three times acknowledging his thanks gave for an encore an Etude, of Chopin's in G Flat, and was again recalled. MISS IRENE AINSLEY. To follow such an artiste as the above was not an easy task. Miss Ainsley, however, hav- ing arrived late, was solely responsible for this. She sang Sullivans "The Lost Chord," in which her fine low notes were greatly appreciated. In her second song H. Walford Davies' "Hanie," she. scored a well-deserved recall, and sang most artistically in reply to the demands, "Annie Laurie." Miss Ainsley will at no dis- tant date become a great star in the profession of her adoption; we have heard no more pro- mising contralto vocalist for some time, and shall watch her progress with considerable in- terest and anticipation. SUNDAY, AUGUST 11th. Those who arrived expecting to find a seat, later than 8 oclock, were woefully disappoint- ed, and quite as many were promenading the pier, as there were inside the pavilion. The turnstiles must have clicked isome scores of hundreds of times, a music which, if listened to by shareholders, must have given the keen- est delight and made a lasting impression. Those who had gained admission to the con- cert had a grand musical treat. Wagner's "Meister Singer," Beethoven's Symphony in C Minor "No. 5," a violin solo by Al-r John Law- son, Lalo's movement from "Symphonie Espagnole," first time in Llandudno, and songs by Mr Frederic Ranalow. a baritone vocalist. who made a name for himself earlier in the season, all being greatly enjoyed and gaining hearty applause. HERR BACKHAUS' RECITAL, MONDAY, AUGUST 12th. The recital by Herr Backhaus attracting a very excellent attendance at the pier. pavilion on Monday afternoon last, and throughout this famous pianist was most enthusiastically en- cored. Just which items most pleased the audience it would be difficult to say. but amongst, them surely Schubert's "Musical Movement in F Minor," and Men leissohn's "Variations Serieuses" must have taken a lead- ing place in their affections. The selections of Chopin were delightfully interpreted, and called forth repeated acknowledgements by Herr Backhaus. To us the. most enjoyable items were Dvorak's "Humoresque" and Paganini-Lizt's "La Campanella," possibly one of the most difficult compositions set down on the programme, and certainly most perfectly played in every detail, in fact it was the mas- terpiece of a very exacting programme. MISS ELLA RUSSELL. Miss Ella Russell's first two songs, whilst delightfully sung, suffered from the fact that they were not accompanied by a full orchestra. She having selected Wagner's "Elizabetth's Prayer and Greeting." Her four other songs included "Little Orphan Rose" (Vere Smith), "A Dedication" (Robert Coningsby Clarke), "Little Barefoot" (Franco Leoni), and "A Song of Andalusia" (E. J. Margetson). for which she was accorded an overwhelming recall, and graciously complied. < DURING THE WEEK. Mr Ranalow, who concluded his highly suc- cessful visit on Tuesday evening, has made a host of new admirers during his all too brief stay. MR. J. T. FOULDS ('CELLIST). At Monday's evening's concert two 'ce¡:]o solos by Mr J. H. Foulds were accorded the most hearty approval. This artiste, a composer of very considerable merit, and whose work we have mentioned from time to time in these columns, was certainly heard at his best in Dunkler's "Reverie" and Popper's "Gavotte." For an encore he selected one of his own com- positions, to the delight of his confreres, who did not fail to shew their appreciation at iTs termination. MR. FREDERIC SEIGL (VIOLIN SOLOIST AND LEADER). Mr Siegl gained the heartiest approval for his clever interpretation of Wieniawski's Concerto in D Minor. He contented himself by bowing his acknowledgements of the hearty applause with which his performance was greeted. The fact that a lady had been carried out in a faint- ing condition during this solo was a sufficiently disturbing element to upset most soloists, but Mr Siegl carried through his sol.o, to the end, and but for this untoward event would no doubt have given an encore. MISS EDITH EVANS (SOPRANO). This vocalist made her debut before a Llan- dudno audience at Wednesday evening's con- cert, and more than justified the good opinions we had heard of her capabilities as a cantatrice. Weber's "Ocean, thou Mighty Monster" was the first song set down, and her interpretation of it was delightful for its ease and brilliance. Nature has endowed this daughter of Gwalia with an exceedingly pleasing soprano voice, and no vocalist of recent years has given us a finer mid-week treat. Needless to say, Miss Evans had perforce to respond with an encore, for which she chose Lidells "In my Garden.' In the second half she sang Liza Lehmann's "Lovers in the Lane" and "Prince Charming," and was again vociferously encored, and com- plied with "If I buit a world for you." Equally successful on Thursday evening, when she sansr Meyerbeer's Roberto, tu che adoro (Roberto ii Diavo'o), and Emilie Clarke's "Song of Greeting." Miss Evans has undoubtedly made a name for herself in the Queen of Welsh watering places that will live.. A native of Bristol, born of Welsh parents, Miss Evans' home is now in Llangollen, when her profes- sional duties will allow her to visit it. Her professiona engagements, however, are verv numerous, and the coming autumn will see her at the Liverpool Philharmonic, Leeds and Brad- lord Festivals and Manchester. Trained by Daniel Rottham, who also trained Madame Clara Butt, Miss Evans commenced her real career on the concert platform last season; since then she has had many important engage- ments. and lately been on a tour with Madame Clara Butt, She will be known to Llandudno- ite.s as the winner of the soprano and mezzo- soprano solos at the Llanelly Eisteddfod, a unique performance in the annals of Eistedd- iawr. Further visits to the pier pavilion by this subject -of our brief sketch will be looked forward to with more than ordinary interest and considerabe anticipations of pleasure. MR. JAMES COLEMAN (BASSO). Mr Coleman on Thursday evening delighted the audience with his fine renditions of Masc-heronrs "Till Death" J. H. Adams' "The Planter"; "Ho Jollv Jenkins," and his own composition, "I think of Thee my love." these two latter being for unanimous encores. The possessor of an exceedingly fine mellow voice, Mr Coleman at this, his" first visit to Llan- dudno, made many new friends, and in intro- ducing a song of his own composing he gave evidence, of his capabilities as a composer. He is always assured of a cordial reception at any future visits to the Llandudno pier concert. FIFTEENTH SPECIAL. Madame Kirkby Lunn, contralto, and Mr Herbert Brown, baritone, are the vocalists for to-night's special concert. There is no need to remind intending patrons that an early attend- ance must be made if they wish to secure a seat; the attendances throughout the week have easily lowered all previous records, and to-night should reach the highest water-mark. THE SAMUEL HUGHES' TESTIMONIAL. This testimonial has now reached upwards of £ ■120, and intending7 contributors may. if they so desire, hand in their cheque's at the Metro- politan Bank. the manager of which will duly notify the secretary, who will forward receipts .for same,.

Most of the really great artistes on the legitimate as well as the variety stage have become associated with a distinct "Li'ne of part," that has grown to be known as particularly identified with their own personality.

SERVING AN INTOXICATED PERSON.— Samuel Johnson, licensee of the Gresham Hotel, was charged at Llandudno Police Court on Monday with permitting an intoxicated per- son to be served on August 2nd.—Mr J. J. Marks prosecuted, and Mr R. S. Chamberlain defended.—The case for the prosecution as stated by Mr Marks was that a man named John Williams, whose, "bardic" nom-de-plume is "Jack Warrior," was observed by P.C. J. Williams going up Mostyn Street heavy in drink. The constable missed him at Glcddaeth Street, and found him again in the snug at the Gresham with a woman. Another man and woman were also in the snug, and there were four glasses of beer on the counter. The land- lord subsequently ejected the four, and in doing so, said it was a shame they came into the hous.e, in such a state to get licensees into trouble. The landlord and barman were in when the constable entered. It was only fair to state, concluded Mr Marks, that Williams had been refused earlier in the day by the landlord, and that he was not in when the beer was served. Evidence in confirmation was given by P.C. Wi.liams and Sergt. Jones, who added that Williams was locked up.—Fcr the defence Mr Chamberlain did not deny the facts, but put witness on oath to prove the pre- cautions he had taken to ensure defendant not being served. From his evidence and the bar- man it appears that the woman had called for the beer, and that the barman who served it did not see Williams, the drunken perscn, until the constable came in and began to talk to him.—In dismissing the charge, the Chair- man said they gave defendant the benefit of the doubt.
