Mr Parton, C.M.E., delivered a lecture on Thursday evening to the members of the .Society on "The World's Birthday" or "Geology compared with the account of creation as given in Genesis." Commencing by stat- ing the proposition that "If the Bible, wa,s the work of God it followed that the 9 works recorded must agree) with the words, Mr Parton gave an account of the Creation which, viewed from the stand- point of the geoologilst and scientist, shewed that the order of creation was ab- solutely in accordl with that given by Mosest, adopting: the "days" of scripture as not being: Solar days but periods of time. Proceeding, he claimed that, the account in Genesis must havei been in- spired, as ire: was impossible to conceive that Moses had that knowledge! of geology, which would: enable him to place the order of Creation in that which is now universality admitted. to be correct.

LAND TAXATION AND VALUATION. ADDRIEISI8 BY MRI. EIV AN R, DAVIES. Mr Evan R. Davies gave: an address at the Liberal Club, Llandudno, on Thurs- day night, on the question of land taxa- tion and valuation. Alderman John Owen, Availlion,, presided. Mr Davies. during the course of an exhaustive and instructive address, said that when he promised the secretary of the Club to speak on the question he had no idea that it would be the battle ground on which an histoirilci battle would -be fought. 1-1 was his opinion, however, that when 150 members of the: House of Lord could overrule the wishes of the representatives of over seven million electors, it was necessary that, everyone should fully reaMse the things they were fighting for.-(Appla,us,e.) Such, meetings as he was addressing that night, were of the greatest: value in that respect, for they enabled the workers in the L cause to go right to, the root of the matter, and become convinced of the justice and righteousness of their Cla,use.(Applause.) Large, meetings might, sway the electors, and the vidtory might be won, but it would he valueless unless1 based on con- vection. Mr Davies then dealt with the de- population of rural districts, the effect of the policy of great landlords joining farm to farm and tenement to tenement in the interests of sport until the number of agricultural labourers had decreased in 30 years by 250,OOO.-(S:hame.) The land, 'clauses of -the Finance Bil he maintained were intended to check tha-t condition of things' and to encourage: a return of labourers to agricultural pur- LIL I suits. He defended the principal of taxation of land values instead of railing, as being more just to the country as a whole, and gave, local instances of the benefits, that. would accrue when the pro- posals of the Government, became law. In conclusion he instanced the benefits which had followed; the adoption of the principles of land taxation and valuation in other countries, and urged tihe young members of. the Liberal parity to study carefully the provisions of the Finance Bill and to, do their utmost to educate their neighbours to it's advantage's. On the motion of Mr J. J. Marks, seconded by Mr D. W. Thomas, and supported by Mr Peacock, a cordial vote of thanks was accorded Mr Davies for his address.
IN PRAISE OF LLANDUDNO. To the Editor D'ear Sir.—In your "What the "Adver- tiser" says" of November 13th you men- tion the pleasure the "Advertiser" gives to those far away. As one who knows and loves Llandudno, weli, I may tell you the great pleasure I gelt each week through it being kindly sent to me in London by a, friend residing in Llan- dudno. It brings with it lovely pictures of the two harys and scenery which is in- delibly imprinted upon my mind. In my opinion Llandudno is unique as an ideal watering place (an opinion fully endorsed iby many friends who have visit- ed it for the first time during this last lu season). The magnificent, stretch of sea, and the brilliance of the blue sky with its change- ful lights and shadows, crossing and re- crossing the lofty peaks, of the mountains, make a picture of loveliness not to be surpasisec1 in this island home of ours. Years pass, seasons Ichange friends (alas, how many!) depart, but the lovely scene remains in the hearts of those who -L S have loved to behold it. With thoughts and memories- ever turning to dear' and never-to-be-forgotten Llandudno, and with a keen appreciation of the power in your paper to brighten the atmosphere of London. Believe me, dear sir, Yours truly, E. M. H.
THE CONGO BIOSCOPE -LECTURE AND ITS NATURAL URGENT USES, To the Editor- Sir,—The Congo Bioscope lecture will be given for the second time this Satur- day evening at, the Missionary Exhibition now being held in the pier pavilion, and although at the first, lecture there was a. full house yet what was by word and bioscope brought powerfully and con- vincingly- beforei the Christian audience makes one, in zeal for the poor slave's freedom, desire that this unique display should reach every responsible person in Llandudno' that the town mav be thoroughly aroused to a, sense of its duty in letting a strong protest go forth. against, this cruelest slavedom, and this voice should bel heard from every British commercial centre. The bioscope as used by the Rev. J. R. M. 'Stephens its in the uses of the Divine Providence. Yea, and in such, the particulars of Pro- vidence. The revelation in the word of the prophet being "lifted up to see Jeru- salem and there seeing abominable things" shows any intelligent, reader that the diabolical hells are ever seeking their spiritual opportunity to. breathe forth persecution and death, annihilation of all traces of goodness and truth is their glee of self-love, and a. survival of themselves as Goiclis is their creed. When the hells threaten destruction, the Lord permits so. far as good can result, and in this bioscope Recrture the Celestial men and women iln the Church are seen in their particular genius of use. This great good done, must, be seen to be adequate- ly understood, and this is my apology for ths notice. Since the early phoenician traders, the earliest formation of Greek communities and the records of all authentic commerce illicit dealings have been a proved disregard for equity, and now in these later times, the trader unreformed, has destroyed equity, violated the most. sacred principles of honest, sober enjoyment of life (by his greed of gain either by red rubber or fire, spirit, to the destruction of these, natives, and what means are resorted to, for these illicit. ends this iliecture very fully reveals. A description is not needed, but, a notice to cause every Christian man and woman to sacrifice themselves if need be to be present at the Saturday evening: Congo Bioscope: Lecture, which I would wish could also be given on Sunday 1 afternoon and Sunday evening after service hours, so that all may see and the cause become stronger.

Tennyson's I In Memoriam." LECTURE BY THE RECTOR OF LILANDUDNO. At a meeting of the St. Paul's Literary and Dehating1 Society on Tuesday even- ing, November 30th, the Rev. LI. R. Hughes, M.A., Rector of LSandudno-, de- livered a lecture, entitled "The In Memoriam," of Tennyson, as illustrating the aims and aspirations of the 19th iCientury." In the unavoidable absence of the President, Mr L. H. Edminson occupied the chair, and after referring to. Mr Gladstone's estimate of Arthur Hal- lam's brilliant- gifts spoke of "In Memoriam" as the one of all English poems, the loss of which we should most regret. The lecturer said his remarks would be the result of his own reading of the poem in the light of the poet's life and the times in wl-iiich he lived uninfluenced by what other critics had written upon the sub- ject. The poem grew upon one the more one read and studied it. It had exercised great influence upon writers, preachers and in their best moods politicians!, who found in it a mine of lofty sentiments set, in language which had become proverbial. It was to be read entirely in the light of gospel truth, and would be found to be in union with the great theological and philosophical ideas that were being de- veloped at the time. One great prin- f ciple underlying even the first part of the poem was to be found in the stanza, re- ferriing to the philosopher Goethe —. "I hellcl it truth, with him who sings To one clear harp in divers tones, That men may rise on stepcing-stones Of their dead selves to higher things." 9 6 The poem was unique among English poems in the perfect correctness of its philosophic and scientific ideas. Jowett had said of Tennyson that. he drew his philosophy up from the depths. In this respect the poem reflects the' age for new ideas were bursting forth after a, period of intense suffering in the thirties; the mid-Victorian periiocl was a time of great hopefulness and optimism. The great men of Tennyson's time worked together in great hopefulness of the fulfilment of their ideas, though the last years of the poet's life were to some extent fraught with disappointment, which is sadly re- flected in his "LiOcksley Hall sixty years after." His companions at Cambridge were men of serious character and high ideals, as he relates in the stanzas describing a later vjislit to his dId haunts (Lxxxvii). There was something great to be lived for and always to be reached through suffering and death. Up to that time the philosophy prevailing among English thinkers had been utilitarian, but the transcendental or idealistic philosophy, as represented in Germany by Goethe, and briefly expressed in the phrase "self- abnegation and sell-realizartioon," had already begun to gain hold of the coun- try; in thils boo, "In Memoriam" reflected the tendency of the age. In contrast with Carlyle, who was great but narrow, Tennyson exhibited marked expansiveness and openness. He accepted the theory of evolution, for ex- ample, which Carlyle denounced, while Ruskin too, a glorious writer but, not possessing the all embracing sympathy of "In Memoriam" described Darwin as "a comet in the firmament of the times dragging in its train every imbecility of Europe." The wonderful part of the poem was its lingering grief; light was only seen. through the light of the Resurrection. One of the great principles that ran through the whole of it was that the poet never despaired of the final good for everyone. "Oh yet we trust, that somehow good Will be the final goal of ill. I can but trust that good shall fall At last, far off-at last to all, And every winter change to spring." In regard to his pofidcail views, the poet had no narrow wish to keep the people down, but thought that a. position of leadership should only be won by earnest labour; he showed an innate intolerance of vulgarity, in whatever rank of life it appeared. Mr Hughes closed his lecture by read- in g most of the conclusion of the poem, which he said gave, a true description of the theory developed throughout the poem of eventual perfect communion with those, we have known aildi loved upon earth. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded to the Rector on the motion of Mr R. Tongin, seconded by the Chairman, who to relieve the lecturer's voice, had during the evening, read several of the passages from the poem selected to illustrate the various points developed in the lecture.

DEGANWY AS A HEALTH RESORT. A PUBLIC MEETING, — IMPRESSIVE MEDICAL TESTIMONY A public meeting was held on Wednes- day night in the Church Schools at De- ganwy to "correct the impression which has got abroad, as the result of news- paper reports, that typhoid fever has been and still is prevalent :in Deganwy." There was a numerous attendance, and Dr. G. H. Griffiths, the chairman, was support- ed on the platform by two medical gentle- men who live in retirement at Deganwy— Dr. William Carter, of Liverpool. and Dr. Hamilton, of Chester,'—by Dr. R. A. Pricharld (several times Mayor of Conway, in which borough Deganwy is situated), the Rev. J. F. Reece, vicar of Llanrhos),, the Rev. 0. Selwyn Jones, and Mr Willoughby Gardner, the archieologyst, whose residence; is at. De- ganwy. Messrs. Field, Sons, and Harrison, ,LC4 solicitors to Mr Field, the plaintiff in the recent action, wrote that the typhoid cases were clearly traced to certain mink supplies, and the pllaintiff's contention was clearly proved by an exhaustve trial. No doubt the action at the assizes had caused public atention to be drawn to the matter, but rumours were already afloat, matter, but rumours were already afloat, and the writers thought it would be agreed that Mr Field ha.d done a public service in clearly defining the causes of the outbreak, and proving that typhoid was not endemic in the district. No dis- trict could be healthier than that which 4 included the Conway Valley, Deganwy, and Llandudno, and the reputation which that district- enjoyed was well borne out by the health statistics. In 1908 there was not a single case of typhoid notified in. the Conway urban district ('which in- cluded Deganwy), and in Llandudno only one case of typhoid was notified during the two years 1907-08. The Chairman said that the district, from his point of view, was "beastly healthy" -(laugihter),-and the doctor was hardly able to make ends meet. They all knew this fact, but unfortunately the people of Liverpool., Manchester, and Biriiiinghain had been talking about typhoid in that beautiful district, and it was necessary to reassure them. The farm in Marie Lane, from which the infected milk came, was quite a mile and a half from Deganwy, and there had not been a. .single case of typhoid in Deganwy itself. The Marie Lane dairy had long been stopped, and the typhoid had been stamp- ed out even of that district. The total number of cases in the outbreak was stated, in the, course of the trial, to have been seventeen, but he did not think there was that number. Eight or nine' months had passed since the cases occurred, and the whole thing was practically forgot ten. but was revived by the Liverpool action. Unfortunately the newspapers called it a case of "Fever at Deganwy." If it were true he would not. mind, but it, was not, true that there had been any fever at Deganwy. In the last four years at De- ganwy he had only reported one' case, and that was in 1905. There had been none since, not even of suspicion. That statement also held good of Conway.— (Applause.) It was due to the locality that this should he made quite clear.— (Applause.) A resolution expressing deep sympathy with Mr Field in the loss of his wife and the trouble which had been caused to him was passed on the motion of the chair- man, seconded by Mr A. G. Rogers, Mr Field's residence < is about a mile from De- ganwy, in the Maitle district. Dr. R, A. Pricihard, in the course of hie speech, said that he had been for forty years in practice at Conway, and there had been two outbreaks of typhoid dur- ing' that time, one in 1886 and the other at the beginning of last year. Both were traced to the milk supply, and both end- ed as soon as the source of contamination was discovered and the supply stopped. This kind of thing was a. mere mishap which might occur anywhere. The sug- gestion that there was any impurity in the estuary of the river was ridiculous, and he was quite sure that there was not a more healthy neighbourhood in the world than that, of Deganwy and Con- way.-(Arplause.") Dr William Carter. Dr. Hamilton. Mr Willoughby Gardner, and Mr James Stout (of Oakwood Park) all spoke high- ly of the salubrity and charm of De- ganwy and the district, and claimed to be examples of what the restorative and energising qualities of the place could do. The Rev. J. F.. Reece, the vicar, said the other gentiiemen had come to live at Deganwy by choice, whilst he had been sent there:—(laughter):—hut still he was very glad that he had come, and he thought they -were quite right, in standing up for the reputation of the district.— (Applause.) The sanitation of the place was .excellent., and the very last thing that people could do there was to die.— (Laughter.) The Rev. Ü Selwyn Jones and others having- spoken, a vo:e of thanks to the Deganwy Improvement AssooiatCyon, who had summoned the meeting, was passed, and the meeting terminated.

MISS THOMAS'S ANNUAL CONCERT. Miss Margaret Thomas's annual con- cert was given at the Town Hall on Fri- day evening last. The artistes included Mr John Bridge, of the Halle Concerts, violin Mr John Walton. violon-celio Master Bernard Walton, harp Miss Mar- garet' Thomas pianoforte Mr George Baker, vocalist, and Miss Kate Kid-son, accompanist. As will be seen Miss Thomas relied upon artistes who had pre- viously appeared at her concerts, and met with such undoubted success. Mr Walton and his clever son are well-known to Llandudno audiences, and Mr George Baker has twice previously sung for Miss Thomas, and eilso been heard at the pier pavilion concerts. He was in excellent voice and charmed all who heard him. Recalls and encores were freelv demand- ed from time to time during the evening, and each individual performer came in for the heartiest a.pp-ause for his or her effort. The addition of a. gallery is an un- doubted improvement from an acoustic point of view, but there is plenty of room for improvement. The .lighting is any- thing but perfect this was evidenced in the trio, more particularly where each artiste had to sit at a different angle to secure the most favourable light in the music score. The programme was as fol- lows: Duet (piano and 'cello), "Variations on a, Theme of Handel's" (Beethoven), Miss M. Thomas and Mr Walton; songs (a), Prologue to "Representation of the Body and the Soul" (1600) (Emilie Cavaliieri); (h), Recit and Aria.

NORTH WALES FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION. A meeting of the North Wales Coast Football Association was held on Thurs- day night at Llandudno Junction. Mr R. J. Hughes presiding. Holyhead protested against the quali- fication of players in the Pwllheli team who defeated them in the recent tie. The ground of objection was that the players were not registered according to rule four. Mr Weeks stated the case for Holyhead and Mr D Jones that for Pwll- heli. It was decided that, as the error was technical and due to inadvertence, the match hold good. < SENIOR CUP. The draw for next round resulted as follows: Bangor v.

One of the regula-Lions with respect to tolls upon foot passengers, crossing: the Conway suspension bridge provides that- for one toil each person may cross the brclge as often as he may please on the same day. In the summer, when strangers are about, this regulation is nor known to many users of the bridge., who in their ignorance pay each time oi cross- ing. The only public intimation of the rule is given by a notice on a small sign- board at. the side of the main gateway at Conway, and this is generally overlooked by strangers. The general question of notices on the embankment wall has been referred to the Town Clerk for report.
