THE ADVERTISER SAYS That the request, of the Great Orme Tram- way Company for permission to run a service of trams on Sunday come before the Council for consideration on Wed- nesday evening. That the Chairman decided that the pre- vious resolution on the subject must first, be rescinded or the matter be brought forward by a committee. That a proposal to refer the matter to the Bye-laws Committee was defeated by seven votes to five. That Mr Sarson has given notices of motion that the previous resolution of refusal be rescinded and that permis- sion be granted. That thus, the question will be raised for discussion in a, legitimate manner. That several members, who may not agree with the proposal adopted a fair and reasonable attitude, and contended that the letter should be considered and dis- cussed. That others were. against this course, and their action in proposing to refuse the application of an influential body of ratepayers without either consideration or discussion, is inexcusable. That if they are not prepared to judicially consider applications of any reasonable character, backed by a volume of public opinion—even though they be personally opposed to such request—they have no right to occupy the position of coun- cillors, and the soon they give place to more reasonable men of sounder judg- ment, the better it wiiiti be for the good government of Llandudno. That the application emanated from men whose enterprise and judgment have done much to further the progress and extension of Llandudno, and is their reasonable request to be treated with a distinct lack of courtesy. That we are pleased to note that this view was voiced by Councillor David Davies, the Chairman, and others. That the most satisfactory method of dealing with this Sunday Trams Ques- tion would be by testing the feeling of the ratepayers by taking a vote on this one distinct subject. That we, are aware the expense might be surcharged, but there are ways and I means of overcoming this difficulty. « That the actual expense need be very small; a card bearing the Councils stamp and requesting the elector to return same to the Clerk to the Coun- cil with the signature of the ratepayer and his or her number on the register, would be sufficient. That a vote would settle this question defintely one way or the other for several years. » That the question of the lease of the Happy Valley Minstrel plot is one in which ratepayers as a whole take great interest. That Mr Churchill's tenancy expires at, the end of the present season. That the Council advertised, the lease and received offers ranging from £.275 t.o J6325. That the Bye-laws Cbmmittee met to con- sider the applications, and decided to invite some of the would-be tenants to I give further particulars as t.o what sort of entertainment they proposed to give. That replies from two of the entertainers were received, and the Committee met to consider them last week. < That at, that meeting, however, a further letter from Mr Churchill (who had pre- viously offered £ 275 per annum) was read, Taiging his offer to, 2350. That the Committee could not decide what- course to take. That they referred the whole matter to the. Council. That when the Council met on Wednesday night, some members thought that the matter should be dealt, with in com- mittee, and there was a short debate before that course was decided upon. That why there should he the necessity for all this secrecy it is hard to understand. That the Council 111 Committee having been granted power to act precludes the possibility of open discussion on the matter. » That while there can be no objection to the Council dealing with the matter first in Committee the granting of power to act should be strongly depre- cated. That the ravens are causing considerable loss to farmers in this district. That their methods are to swiftly attack the eyes of newly-born lambs and blind them. That no less than twenty-seven have been killed on the Great Orme's Head dur- ing the past few days. That by the will of Lord Burton the sum of £50,000 is bequeathed to the chil- dren of his cousin, Mr Roger Bass, under conditions. « I That Mr Roger Bass, who resided mainly at Llandudno, died only three weeks 1 ago. That our readers will be glad to know that the children at Bodafon School are no longer fireless. ■A* A That the day following the discussion on the question Mr Ralph Fisher arranged for the fixing of the stove, which is to 7 be paid for out, of the proceeds of a concert. That we offer our congratulations to Alderman John Owen (Avallon) upon his election as vice-chairman of the Carnarvonshirie County Council. « That he was selected for the position at the annual meeting of the Council on Thursday, Dr. RI. A. Prichard (Conway) being elected the chairman for the ensuing year. That in the ordinary course of events Mr John Owen will be elected chairman next year. Tha,t, Mr Owen has taken an active part in the public life of his native town of Llandudno, and of the County of Car- narvon for a period extending over many years. That he has filled many responsible public offices, including the presidency of the Llandudno Urban Council, and has invariably given every satisfaction by his impartiality and close acquaintance with the business under discussion. That he may be relied upon to' justify his selection when the time arrives for him to preside over the members of the County Council. » That some remarkable rumours have been current during the past week locally. That concerning a few it, has been easy to prove them false, but of others, with some circumstantial evidence, it has been difficult to obtain reliaJble information. That the Llandudno Urban Council Elec- tion is not likely to prove very exciting. That the number of persons nominated are not so many as in some previous years. That, however, there is every prospect of a contest in the throe wards. That we hope every elector will consider the questions relating to the progress and prosperity of the town and not fail to record his or her vote. • • That it is only by going to the poll can ratepayers expect to prove their interest in the good government of the town, and keep those who are sent to the Council fully alive to1 their duties and obligations. That in the past', the Council in many instances, have been elected by less than half the electorate, which is far from a satisfactory state, of affairs. 'That the competitions at, the Pier Theatre of Varieties are exciting the greatest interest. That on Wednesday the place was packed. That, the competition consisted of guesses as to the number of ladies present. That seven competitors sent in the actual number, namely 336. < That they each received the sum of 14s. 3d. 2 That the successful competitors were Mrs A. Jones, 3, Tudno Street; Miss Eliza- beth Griffith, Great Orme; Miss Lillie Meredith, 75, Mostyn Street; Miss Gladys Pritchard, Telegraph Hotel; Mr Will Hughes, Oakley Cottage, Court Street; Mr Ellis 'Thomas, Gwynfryn View; Mr James Wellsi Ivy Cottage, Bodafon Row. That Mrs Hughes, the wife of the late Professor Alfred Hughes, will open the Grand Bazaar in aid of the Constitu- tional ca uib on the second day. That the semi-finalli tie, for the North Wales Senior Cup will be played on the Council Field to-day (Saturday) between Conway and Greenfied. That a good gamel is anticipated. That. the receipts at the sale of work at St. John's English Wesley an Church amounted to, £ 194.
