AN UNUSUAL EXPERIENCE.-Twice dur- ing the three days' visit of the "Dairymaids" Company to the Prince's Theatre last week an alarm oi fire 'was [given while the piay was in progress, anr some thoughtless people on each occasion started to rush for the exits. The prumptappearancel of Mr Felix on the stage on Thursday night and. of Mir Maraden on Satur- day liignt to assure the at c.iience that theire was no danger, however, sufficed to stop the rush, and the, people returned to their seats.

A NARROW ESCAPE.—As one of the cars of the Llandudno and Colwyn Bay Light Railway Company was passing Lloyd's Bank on Mon- day evening filled with passengers going to the Grand Theatre, a child -of six or seven years of age dan-ted -across the road directly in front of it. With most commendalble promptitude the driver (Hiinch'liffe) put the brakes hard down and brought the car to a standstill with a jerk that considerably disconcerted the passengers. The car almost touched the child, who would undoubtedly have been seriously injured had not Hili-chliffe, acted in the manner he did. SUFFRAGIST MEETINGS ON THE BEACH. In spite of the prohibition of the Council, a party of members of the Women's National Social' and Political Union oomime,nc,e)d a series of meetings on the beach opposite the Marine Hotel on Tuesday afternoon.

Among the members who are expected to take part in the meetings are Miss Beatrice Hrur- raden and Miss Mary Gawtho-rpe. The Coun- cil has, as yet, not interfered in any way with the meetings. SCENE AT A FAiSIHIONABLIE SALE- ROOM.—An exciting scene was witnessed at Mr Blaimmann's Saleroom the other evening. This establishment, known as the "Christie s of North Wales" was, as usual; attGiiclcd by a fajshjiotnable audience, and some spirited bid- ding was noticed from the outset, but the bidding for the piece de resistance, a pair of handsome vases, proved most exciting. Stairt- ing at a comparatively low figure, the bids rose five pounds at a time, until, ninety-two guineas was reached and finally knocked oown at that price to a gentleman, who was warmly congratulated (.n all haiiids on his bargain. LIFEBOAT .LIAUNiClH.On Monday the Llan- dudno. Lifeboat was laAtndhed in the presence of a crowd which must have numbered nearly twenty thousand. The early morning was wet, and very few made the usual excursions, and at 11-45 when the first signal was sent up a cmowd quickly gathered which extended; from the Pier entrance to the Imperial Hotel, and many hundreds watched operations from the Pier. It was nearly hdigh tqde at the hour selected for the launch, and the lifeboat quick- ly found her natural element. After rowing out a few hundred yards sails were unfurled, and the crew gave an interesting exhibition of lifesaving. A collection was taken among the crowd to supplement the annual collectaon at the hotels atnld boarding-houses in_ -aid of .<he funds of the National Lifeboat Institution. LOCAL CHARITIES.—The circular letter from the Charity GommissioIl, and draft scheme read at the last meeting of the Council with reference to the. Charities of Ap Roberts and Lewis Owen, also a copy of the scheme as settled by the Commissioners, together with a further letter asking to be furnished with a copv of <(ihe i esolution appefa-ting Trustees m pursuance of Clause 5 of the said, scheme, has been before the Llandudno Finance Committee.

MINIMAX FIRE DEMONSTRATION.—On th Council Field on Thursday afternoon Dr. Fitzgerald Arthur, of Minim-ax, Ltd., London, gave a most interesting address and a fire extinguishing demonstration before a -goodly concourse of spectators, including several councillors and officials A large of oases heavily coated: with tar and oilband hi^d with wood and Shavings was erected, this was a pit full of tar on which, al was freely thrown. When .a match was applied, at once arose a column of dense smoke and rasing flame which was almost terrifym- the ihelat caused the spectators to ibeait a rapid retreat. When the whole mass was one huge blaze Mr Winning seized a Mi^x, strack it on the ground, and flius broke the be-c- meticallv sealed acid tube. 4 iet was tihrqwn seme 30 to 40 feet on to. tb raging mass.

Americans Unable to Resist the Attractions of Llandudno Llandudno, Friday.—Everyone knows, of course, that the faithful Aerican tourist does not consider a, visit to, the' British Isles com- plete without a short pilgrimage to Stratford- on-Avoto, -but I never found a place which so' arrested the attenton of the- American visitor as this' moist beautiful of North Wales watering places, Llandudno. Americans on holiday bent would seem only to be beginning to discover this place. They have been here in consider- able numbers this season. There is not a hotel in the place but has a considerable number among its visitors. And the strange thing is that while most of them came on just a flying visit, thev have thrown a considerable' portion of the remainder of their English tour to the winds, audi stopped, for days here, even for weeks beyond the period they originally intend- ed to stop. Perhaps there is little to. be won- dered at in that, for the natural beauties of the. place airei enchanting, and it is a most con- venient. centre to stop at for "doing" Wales and the Einglish lakes by automobile. Dr. Maurice L. Goocikin-d, of Chicago, with Mrs Goodkind and their family, came here on July 12th, just for a few days, and they are still here. "I have been in the country again and again," said the doctor in course of a chat in the loiunge of the Grand Hotel, where lie is stopping, 'but I never found such a, delightful place as this,. It is so bracing, and yet so well protected from; the, north and east winds, that I think it a, most healthy place. We had no intentions of stopping here more than a few days at the outside, and yet here we de- cid'ed td stop the most of the' time. But next week we must be moving. On our way to London we probably shall stop a day or two at Leamington Spa, and pay a brief visit to Shakespeare's country. Then IOn to. London, where I shall take a, look round some of the hospitals," 'The doctor could add but little, more. His little children were waiting for him to go for a climb on the Great Orme, on the top of which the Pierrots make merry for young and old. UNDECIDED HOW LONG TO STOP. In the Grand Hotel, too, I met Mr J. E. Scboenberg., of New York. He came at the beginning of this week, juson a flying visit. He is still here. For how long ? "I don't know," said Mr Schoenberg. "I have been in Europei for the past nine, months, ,but I am so charmed with this place I don't know how long I am going to stop now. Americans .don't know what North Wales is, or more of them would come You cam tell my countrymen so." Then there are Mr H. C. Van Slyke, M. H. 0. Bilggs; and Mr J. G. MacdonaLd, of New York, who came together on the 2nd of this month, and who. have just gone. Mr and Mrs E. Foster and their daughter, Miss Ellen, of Buffalo, N.Y., landed from the Mauretania, at Liverpool, and took Llandudno on their way south, just for a peep at North Wales "en passant," but they found the place and the surrounding scenery so captivating, that a week did not satisfy them. Mr and Mrs Sigismund Seisler, of Chicago, did likewise. Mr and Mrs H. Long, Of Boston, extended a pro- spective two-days' visit into a week. So did Mr A. F. Clash, of Pittsburg. A quartette of four young American women touring Europe to- gether, the Misses Jane M. 'Thomas, Elsie C. Powell, Mary R. James, and Alice C. Hine, of Scranton, Pa., have been passing a most em- joyable tme here, and have just left for the south.—From "New York Herald" August 16th,
PIER CONCERTS. T THIRTEENTH GRAND SPECIAL. Although this, was the thirteenth of the series otgramd concerts, and accVding to L popular superstition should have been un- lucky, it was quite the reverse, in fact the only ill-luck attending it v as that experienced b:¡. L late-comers, who were unalble to obtain a front seat. We have frequently written of the mag- L nificent orrchestra Mr A. W. Payne has under his command, an orchestra of musicians each member being a worker, in the real sense of the term, but the renditions on Saturday even- ing were particularly brilliant, and we have (never heard T'schaikowsky's Overture Sollenelle "1812" more finely played; it was great, and the audlience showed their appreciation in such preci loud and oontinuoas applause as to warrant Mr Payne repeating the latter portion. The ex- oellence of the orchestra was by no means -ra, confined to this .one particular piece, for1 throughout the evening there was a general de- sire to encore each item. MR. JOHN ROBERTS (Tenor). Mr John Roberts made his debut before a Pier Pavilion audience at Saturday evening's concert. He is a native of South Wales, Llanelly to b" exao.t, and was a member of the Bir'lt-h Choir which won the chief choral prize at the last National Eisteddfod, held at Llandudno. It is only, hov-fver, within the last two years that Mr J. Roberts has appeared on the concert platform as a !soloist, and judg- ing from the success which has crowned his efforts during his v eek's stay dn our midst, he bids fair to become a popular soloist on the leading concert platforms. For his Tendering of Adams' "Island of Dreams," he at once secured an encore, and in the second half Elrmenthal's "My Queen" was equally pleas- ing to the audience, who again demanded more; in fact, encotres have been. insisted upon at his every appearance that we have been present, proving beyond doubt that he has greatly pleased his audience, and in these days of few, really good tenors, his inclusion amongst the list of pier vocalists will be very acceptable. MADAME GLEEISON WHITE Madame 'Gleeson White ha previously been he.ard at the pier concert -otn many occasions, but we venture to think she has never given us a finer tre.it than on Saturday last. She excelled herself sin Weber's "Ocean, Thou Mighty Monster" (Oberon), and we cam well understand that her engagements for grand operas in the autumn. Needless to say, Madame White was encored, and again in the second half for her rendering of Hamilton Harty's "A Lullaby" and "At Sea." DURING THE, WEEK. Sunday evening's concert was made memorable frotm the fact that Mr John Roberts sang Tito Mattei's "Bianca" and Handel's Recit and Air, "Thanks to my brethren," "How Vain is Man." The orchestral items in- cluded Gounod's March, "La Reine de Saba." Mendelssohn's "Allegro Moderato from O-ctett, first time at these concerts, Wagner's Vorspiel, "Lohengrin," Beethoven's overture, "E'gmont" (Op 84), and a. harp solo by Mr Harold Jarvis, "Etude in G Flat," b- J. Thiomas, which came in for special appreciations of delight. < MISS MARIE HALL, MATINEE PERFORMANCE. Marrie Hall, who will appear at the Pier Pavilion on Thursday, August 26th, supported by a high-class. Concert Party, has just return- Pavilion on Thursday, August 26th, supported by a high-class. Concert Party, has just return- ed from a, prolonged tour of Canada, etc., and eveivwhere met with phenomenal success. The "Montreal Herald'" says:—"Yesterday Mari% Hal,l played in Montreal for the fifth time.' And there gathered! to hear her in His Majesty's, Theatre an audience the like of which as not assembled for any musical event in that build- ing since its erection. Long before the time scheduled for the opening of the concert, the, entrance was literally beseiged by an eager crowd, including everybody of prominence in Montreal society, all the leaders of the musical movement in this city. Every seat was oocupGed, and wherever therce was stand- ing room, those who could not get seats stood. And over all, from the old musiedaa of fifty years' experience to the me'e lover de- void of the slightest technical knowledge, Marie Hall ca,-t the subtle spell of her wonderful genius. Over that vast audience, after the first sweep icf. that magic bow. across the strings of her beloved Stirad avarius there spread like a mysterious mantle a tense silence that could almost be felt-a, silence so intense one caught one's self drawing bated breath." < SIGNOB. T1 AMI NT. The "fashionable" tenor vocalist paid a v:sit with his party to the Pier Pavilion on Monday afternoon last, and' gave a special matinee. There was a fair audience present, but if few in numlber they made up for a, much larger assembly by the warmth of their apprecia- tion. In addition to Signor Tamini the vocalists included Miss Hilda. de Angelis, soprano, and Miss Zelie Dels art, contralt o, and Mr Frank Mummery played' several pianoforte J items. Included in signer Tamind's soli were Leoncavello's "Vesta la Guibba" and Wagner's Lohengrin's "Farewell." He was encored on each occasion, and met with a flattering recep- tion. < FOURTEENTH GRAND SPECIAL,. For the fourteenth of the special series of concerts to-night (Saturday) the artistes in- clude Madame Kirby Lann, contralto, and Miss Laura Eivans-Williams, soprano. Both vocalists are well-known and extremely popular with Llandhdno audiences as elsewhere, and we venture to predict a packed house will be re- corded.
Suffragists at Llandudno. SCENES ON THE BEACH. A number of members of the National Women's Social andr Political Union have made Llandudno their headquarters, and in spite of the prohibition of the Council have held a series of meetings on the beach opposite the Marine Hotel. The principal members of the party appear to be Mrs Herbert Duncan, Man- chester Miss Lilian Williamson, B.A., Vic- toria University, and Dr. Jones, one of the medical inspectors of children for Birmingham. When these ladies took up their stand on Thursday night ,a very large crowd quickly collected, which appeared, to be divided into two s-ectio-is--one ,composed of those willing to listen to what the speakers had to say in explanation of their actions during the last three years, and the other a number of iTre- sponsible youths out far an evening's enjoy- ment, and with about as much knowledge of politics as an intelligent Hottentot. Mrs Herbert Duncan briefly explained that women demanded the vote on the same terms aa men and made way for Dr. Jones, who proved to be a capable and witty speaker. In defence of the militant tactics of her party she traced the history of how the people of Englaind obtained the franchise by means of rioting, breaking up meetings, even by the taking of life, and asked if in the face of th-aft record her male friends coiuld consoienÜously object to the present attitude of the women, who firmly believed that the enfranchisement of women was the next step forward on the road to progress. The ,society she belonged to intended to drive the Liberal party into giv- ing women the vote. This statement roused considerable opposi- tion, but Dr. Jones said she was too much a Liberal to allow the present Government to go out of office without giving women the vote, for if they did the Conservative party would grant it. From this point onwards the speaker was continually interrupted by the young men grouped -together on her right, but she in- variably scored off them, and they resorted to calling for cheers for Mr Lloyd George, Mr Chamberlain and other politicians varying the cries with the singing of "Oh Antonio," "Has ,anyone here seen Kelly," "God save the King," -etc. They got tired after a 'while, and Dr. Jones was ,abl,e to answer the questions put to' her from the other and quieter side. To ttie-e questions she gave fair replies. In reply to- one she said that if the Government would give a pledge to introduce a women's en- franchisement bill before the present Parlia- ment came to, an end her party would abandon at once their present attitude. Before women could obtain reforms in many oppressive laws they would have to be enfranchised. She did not want petticoat government, nor did she want trouser government, but she did want to see petticoats and trousers side by side, work- ing in thei cause of progress. The noisy crowd then resumed their sing- ing and shouting, and Dr. Jones brought her remarks to a close. At the invitation of one of her questioners she was given three cheers as making her way through the crowd. RAINFALL DURING JULY.—The rainfall at Llandudno during -he month of July was stated to' be 3.890 inches. AT LAST, HURRAH!—The Llandudno Works Committer have decided to consider at their October meeting the question of fixing the time when the painting work of the Council should be carried out. A COMPLAINT.—A letter was read from Messrs Evan :Haghes and Son, builders, with reference to the woodwork in connection with the new shelters, and expressing the opinion that this work might have been done in the to win. THE ADOPTION OF CLAREMONT ROAD. —At a. meeting of the Llamidudno Works Com- mittee a letter was received from Mr G. A. Humphreys requesting the adoption of Clare- mont' Road, from St. Mary's ROald to a point about 90 yards from the N.E. side of St. Mary's I Road. The Committee agreed to pass a re- ,solution declaring the part of the road re- ferred to to be a Public Highway as soon as the lamps' in the road have been fitted with incandescent burners and suitable lanterns, and certain asphal-bing work earned out to the satisfaction of the Surveyor. A letter was also read from; Mr G. A. Humphreys requesting the adoption of Back Vaughan Street (except the footpaths). It w.as decided to pass a re-solution declaring -this rdad a public highway, so far as that portion lying between the kerbs is concerned, as scion as the lamps in the said road are placed in proper position, and fitted with incandescent burners and suitable lan- terns. It was also resolved that in future all streets takm over by the Council must be pro- vided with gas lanterns, fitted with incan- descent 'burnars previous to such adoption. "I am very SOilTY to hear, Captain Salter, that your wife left you so unceremoniously." "My mistake, sir. I took her for a mate, and she proved to 'be a skipper." Bones (telling a istory)—"Well, the evening wore on-" Jones-"It did, eh? What did it wear?" Bones—"Well, if you must knew, I believe it was tihe close of a .summer day.

CRICKET. LLANDUDNO v. LLANRWST. Glorious weather favoured the last match of the season between Llandudno and Llannvst Cricket Clubs, which was played on the Glod- daeth Street Ground on Saturday -afternoon, be- fore a much larger -attendaince than usual. Of the three previous matches each club had won a game and the third had been drawn. Both slides were at full strength, and an interesting game was witnessed. A POOR START. Winning the toss, Howel Jones sent Ingfis and; C. N. Jones to open the innings to the bowling of Blackwell and Orton. The Amateur opened with a maiden, but Orion's first yielded eight runs. A maiden to each h.1. +,ill,J _J n '1iI.T 1_ T"I."1 't uu'wxcr i'uiio'w'wu. auu. v. im. Jones got- biaex- wall away for two. That was, however, his last contribution, for wiith the last ball of the same over he was well taken by Orton. With- out any addition to the sco-re Inglis was bowl- ed' by Orton, the second wicket failing at 10. This brought Halstead aind the Rev. W. E. Jones together, and the score sheet began to wear a more respectable appearance. Most of the runs were oibtained by the Rev. W. E. Jones, Halstead contenting" himself with de- fensive tactics. The score had been carried to 41 when the curate made a poor stroke, and was caught by Ashley off Blackwall. He had compiled 21 out -of the 31 runs scored during his stay. Twenty-seven runs were added for the next wicket, of which H. D. Elliot, a visitor, claimed nineteen, a score which includ- ed four boundaries. THE POSITION RECOVERED AND LOST AGAIN. The standi for the third and fourth wickets had placed the home team in a very favour- able position, but the fortunes of the game then veered round dn favour of the visitors, who were most keen in the field. Wells and Halstead added ten for the fifth wicket, but Farrington, Smith, Howel Jones ana' Hartley were all dismissed with only 15 added, the ninth wicket falling at 93. < Halstead had in the meantime continued his patient display, meeting the ball with the full face of the bat, and occasionally getting the ball skillfully between point and! slip, Orton especially coming -,n for punishment in that direction. Orton, by the way, was no-balled OlD. four occasions for over-stepping the bowling crease. HOBSON'S EFFORT. Hohsoin was the last of the Llandudno bats- men, and the last wicket produced the brightest play of the innings. Hobson opened confidentlly, for he got Blac-kwall awav to the leg boundiary off his third ball, He then turn- ed his atention to Orton and got hrim away for a brace of twos and a three, aind the hundred was hoisted amidst cheers from the spectators. This unexpected stand rather riled Blackwall, for failing to capture the last wicket as cheap- ly as "he anticipated he concluded an over with a fast round a-rm delivery, and handed the ball to Jenkins, who was driven to the on boundary dn fine style by Hobson—the best drive üfthe day. Hobson got two other boun- dary hits off Orton, but in attempting a third failed to properly get hold of the ball and was caught by Ashley. He had scored 25. and both he and Halstead received quite an ovation on returning to the pavilion. The last- wicket had -added. 36 to the total -and assisted an interesting finish. Haistead's score was 39, and included three fours. < THE LLANRWST INNINGS. Jefnkans and Carter were Llanrwst's first pair of batsmen, the bowling being entrusted to Elliott and Hartley. The latter clean bowled Jenkins in his first over, and Carter was -caught by Inglis off the first ball of Elliott-'s third over, so that two wickets were -down for thtirteen. Elias and Orton iad,ded 19 for the third before the professional was run out. The visitors then met with a piece of bad luck. for Ashley was struck by a fast ball and retired.
