WREXHAM. PROPOSED NEW PASSENGER ROUTE TO WREXHAM.—It is stated on good authority that arrangements are in progress for opening the line between Mold and Wrexham via Coed Talon for passenger traffic. At present the only suit- able way of reaching Wrexham from Denbigh and Mold is to change at Hope Junction, but the proposed direct route via Mold would much facilitate matters. The line from Mold to Coed Talon, owned by the London and North- Western Railway Company, is already open for passenger traffic, but from Coed Talon to Wrexham there is a line owned by the Great Western Company, which is only open for goods traffic. It is the latter line which it is believed will be declared open for passenger traffic, thus creating through communication between Mold and Wrexham. THE PROPOSED RECREATION GROUND.—The Town Council of Wrexham met in Committee on Tuesday to consider the offer of the Mayor (Mr. Philip Yorke, of Erddig), to give iE500 towards providing a recreation ground for the borough. Councillor Murlees moved that the council was unwilling to approve of a recreation ground being provided in Wrexham, whether in part or otherwise, at the cost of the ratepayers, or the maintenance of which would have to be borne out of the rates. He was sure if the town hall scheme did not secure the sympathies of those in and around Wrexham, that a recreation ground scheme would not. Councillor Benson -1 seconded.—The Mayor was sorry that a town for which he had so high a respect was so devoid of public spirit as to let so memorable an occasion slip by and to let an offer of X500 go by without doing anything with it. He sincerely hoped they would not let it slip.—Alderman Done moved as an amendment, and Councillor Fraser seconded, that additional information be obtained and that the matter be further gone into at a future meeting before a decision was come to. The amendment was carried by four votes to two.
