ST. ASAPH (FLINTSHIRE) DI3TRICT COUNCIL. THE DYSERTH FOOTPATH QUESTION. The monthly meeting of the St, Asaph (Flintshire) District Council was held on Friday afternoon, at the St. Asaph Workhouse. There were uresent Messrs John Roberts, Geinas; John Williams, Dyserth; John Hughes, Prestatyn; W. Conwy Bell, R. Morris, Rhuddlan Tho*. Morgan, Cwm Rev. J. Adams, Tremeirchion; Miss BAnnett, St. Asaph: Mr Charles Grimsley, clerk; Mr George Bell, inspector; Mr John Lloyd, surveyor; and Dr. J. Lloyd Roberts, medical officer of health. THE ELECTION OF CHAIRMAN AND VICE-CHAIRMAN. The Clerk said that that being the annual meetipg it would be necessary to appoint a provisional chair- man, pending1 the election of chairman for the en- suing year. Mr Conwy Bell was unanimously appointed tem- porary chairman. Mr Edwin Morgan proposed that Mr John Roberts, Geinas, be elected Chairman for another year. They were aware that during the past year he had been far from well, but they were plf ased to see him among them again (applause). He had been an old and valued member of the uoard of Guardians, and always most attentive to bis duties. Mr John Williams, PJdêW. seconded. The Bev. John Adams mov cd an amendment, and said he had no illfeeling whatever against Mr Rob- erts. and he quite agreed with everything Mr Mor- gan had said of him. But they wanted a younger man in the chair The duties of that Council were increasing, and he did not expect a man ef Mr Roberts' age to give that attention to the business of the Council as the circumstances demanded' He proposed that Mr Morris, Hendre who was Viee- Chairman last year, should be elected to the chair. Mr Thomas Morgan seconded. A great deal of the Chairman's work had fallen upon Mr Morris' shoulders last year. » Mr Morris thanked the proposer and seconder of the amendment for their kind intentions and ex. pressions, but he begged they would permit him to withdraw from the opposition to Mr Roberts. He would not withdraw without their permission; he could not; and had it been that somebody else be- sides Mr .Roberts bad been proposed he would have felt snubbed if he had been passed over, for he felt it was a complixneot due to the Vice-Chairman to elevate him in due course to the chair. In the present case, howeNr, he was most anxious to with- draw, and begged the permission of his proposer and seconder to adopt that course. The nomination of Mr Morris" as then with- drawn and he seconded the nomination of Mr John Roberts, which was unanimously carried. Mr Edwin Morgan congratulated the Council on the amicable election of the Chairman. Mr Roberts in taking the chair thanked the Council for its confidence. His attendances last year were far from satisfactory, on account of the state of bis health and Mr Morris had been fre- quently called upon to perform his duties, and he was deeply indebted to him. Mr Conwy Bell proposed the re-election of Mr R. Morris to the vice-chair, and this was seconded by Mr Thomas Morgan, and supported by Mr Edwin Morgan, and unanimously carried. Mr Roberts begged to vacate the chair. He did not feel at all well, and if Mr Morris would kindly act, as chairman that day he would be much obliged. Mr Morris then tock the chair, and in doing so thanked the Council forre,eletting him. Anything he had been able to do to assist the Chaiaman in the past, or would be able to do in the future, only gave him the greatest pleasure. On the motion of Mr W. C. Bell, seconded by Mr Edwin Morgan, cordial votes of thanks were passed to the Chairman and Vice-Chairman for their ser- vices during last year. THE FINANCE COMMITTEE was re, elected en bloc DANGEBOUS FCOIBBIEGB AT BODFABT. A letter was read from Mrs Pickop-Dutton, the Grove. Bodfary, calling attention to the dangerous condition of a footbridge across the Wheeler, be- tween the Forge, Bodfary, and Aberwheeler, and Over which some of her workmen had to cross to and frcm their work. A communication had also been received on the same subject from the Parish Council of Bo Hary, enclosing a largely signed ■petitic n from the inhabitants of thit place. Mr John Roberts said this bridge was on the Kinmei estate, and entirely in the parish of Bod- fary, and therefore wholly in the district of that Council. It had been neglected by the people of Kinmel aDd the Railway Company. The District Coujjuil were bound to see thit the bridge was re- paired, but the question was at whose expense? His opinion was that both Kinmel and the Railway Companv were responsible. The Chairman agreed it was the duty oi the Ccuncil to see that the bridge was repaired, but who was to-dp it was another question. Mr Conwy Bell was of opinion 'hat there must be some agreement between the Railway Company and the Kinmel people, if tbey could only get at it. The Clerk said he did he did not tbirk the Kiumel people were responsible He undrstood the bridge bein erected by the Railway Company, but there was no clause in their Act compelling them to keep it in repair. Mr Adams moved that they ask the Kinmel people to provide the material and they provide the labour ior repairing the bridge. It was in a dangerous state, and largely used by children, and should be attended to at once. This found no seconder. On the motion of Mr Coowy Bell, seconded by Mr Edwin Morgan, it was resolved that the Clerk should write to the Kinmel agent asking him to repair the bridge. THJS DYSERTH FOOTPATH CASE.—THE PARISH COUNCILS BEPBESENTATION NOT WELL FOUNDED. The further consideration of the evidence adduced at the inquiry held by this Council in reference to the focrpath over Graig Castle estate, which the Parish Council cf Dyserth allege to have been un- lawful" topped or obstructed, Was adjourned to this meeting, to enable the Clerk to examine the evidence and report upon it. Mr Glimsley then read the evidence given at the inquiry, and said he had carefully considered the matter and had consulted the parish map, Ac. He had also paid a visit to the place, so as to be in a better position to understand the evidence, and to report upon it. The question to be considered by the Council was whether the footpath bad ever been dedicated to the public. The evidence of the witnesses given at the meeting of the Council cn 6th of March, shows that the footpath in question had been used by the public for 40, 50, 60, and 70 years without any interference on jthe part of the owner or occupier of the property, and this fact under ordinary circumstances would in his opinion be considered sufficient evidence of the footpath having been dedicated to the public. He had examined the ordnance map, which was prepared about 1S71, and although certain footpaths are shewn, the one in question is not marked upon it There is a footbridge over the railway on the line of the alleged footpath which rather support* the evidence given at the inquiry, but the ordnance map was prepared he understood shortly after the line of railway was made, and it appeared strange there was nothing to show for what what purpose it was made. He had heaid it stated by persons i likely to have some knowledge of the facts that they believed it was made by the Railway Company for the use of the lalargoch Mining Company, wh-ise workmen required to go to the reservoir frequently to ic ulate the supply of water to the washing floor and to the mine. There is no stile either end of the footpath, but ordinary field gates which he was informed were never locked and easily opened. He was unable to get any evidence showing that the owner had anv knowledge of the footpath, and considering tha- fact that a large number of miners were employed at the mine, aud some of them living in the Newmarket direction, and would naturally takeanearcutt)getto their work, the tenants of (iraijr oach no doubt would have a difficult task to distinguish between those having business at the mines and the general public. The tenant of Graig bach, he was told, used to get his water supply from the reservoir belonging to the mine. L nder all the circumstances, and as far as he could judge, he did not consider the representitiou of the Parish Council to be well founded. Mr Ellis moved that the Council adopt the report of the Cierk. The footpath was an important one. Mr J jhu Williams, Pydew, seconded, and said there was a straight path from Bryniau to Dysertb, and if peop'e went over the (haig Castle footpath to frO from Brvciau to Dyserth they would go about A mile out of their way. The Kev. J. Adams moved an amendment to the effect that the Council considered the footpath in question a public one. Miss Bennett seconded. She understood from the evidence that the path was a very useful one, and had beeu used uninterruptedly tor a large number of years. On a division it was decided to adopt the opinion of the Clerk, that the allegation of the- Dyserth Parish Council that the footpath was a public one, was not well founded. THE PBBSTATTN BAILWAY BBIDGE. The CJerk reported that the magistrates had ad- journed the question of the adoption of the Pres- tatyn Railway Bridge to the 20th of May. He had been told that it had been found that the bridge was not strictly in accordance with the plans d- posited in the House of Commons. If that was so the magistrates would probably refuse to pass the bridge. He should like a committee appointed to consult with aa to what course to tike. Messrs R. Morris, J. Hughes. T Ellis, and J. Williams were appointed to consul with the Clerk. MR. JOHN GEOBGE AND THE ASSISTANT OVERSEER OF ST. ASAPH. A letter was read from Mr John George with reo ference to a complaint he had made to the St. Asaph Parish Council concerning the fact that the Assistant Overseer lived in a public house, and parishioners had go to a public house if they wanted to examine the parish accounts. A member said that Mr George ought to be ex- amined" (laughter). The Chairman In what way ? (renewed laugh- ter). Mr Conwy Bell: I propose the communication be laid on the table. The Clerk said the matters referred to by Mr George were entirely for the Parish Council. THE BHVL DISTRICT COUNCIL THE WOBSf BOAQ MAKEES IN THE WORLD. A communication between the Surveyor and Mr L. G. Hall, maaager of the Rhyl Water Depart- ment, was real relative to the cutting up of the roads witbm the district of this Council to lay water mains, aud the repairing of the roads afterwards. Mr Conwy Bell said it would be most necessary that the Surveyor should see the roads were per. fectly good after the water mains were put it). The Rhyl people were absolutely the worst in the world for making good their roads after cutting them up (laughter). AN ADJOURNMENT. At this point it was resolved to adjourn the re- mainder of the business on the agenda to the 11th of May, as the afternoon was tar advanced, and several of the members desired to spend the evening at the May Day festivities at Rhyl or Denbigh.
FLINTSHIRE COUNTY GOVERNING BODY. WELSH AUTHORITIES AND THE EDUCATION BILL. Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P., presided on Saturday over a meeting of the Flintshire County Governing Rody at Mold. The other members present were Lord Mostyn, Mr J. L. Muspratt, RhyJ; Mr H. Lloyd Jones, Mod the Rev. J. Owen, Mold; the Rev. R. Jones, Mancott; the Rev. H. Davies, Hawarden; Mr J. Foulke-1, Rhyl; Mr G. Nuttil, Rhyl; the Rev. T. Ll. Williams, St. Asaph; Mr i H. Tilby, Rhyl; and Mr D Pierce, Holywell. With regard to the Rhyl new school, the Clerk (Mr T. H. OUive) said he bad received a letter from the Charity Commissioners asking for further in- formation as to the terms upon whiih the premises were to be acquired, &c. The Chairman remarked that the County Governors had confirmed the application of the Rhyl Governors to start a temporary school. Mr R. Ll. Jones attended as a deputation from the Rhyl Local Governing Body, and stated that tho rent of the premises, including a certain amount they proposed to pay for several years for alter- ations, would be ££10 per year. Mr Jones explained the nature of the alterations proposed to be made. The County Governors agreed with the Rhyl proposals, and decided to forward the information to the Charity Commissioners. The Holywell local governors applied for an increased grant from the County Governing Body in order that they might proceed immediately with the erection of the new premises. The application was supported by a deputation, comprising Messrs S. K. Muspratt, P. Harding Roberts, and T. Thomas. The clerk said be had received tenders from the Holywell Governors regarding the new premises. The lowest tender was that of Mr M. S. Rogers, Flint, which amounted to £2,485. 10s. Mr S. K. Muspratt said they strongly recom- mended the lowest tender. After discussion it was thought there was a difficulty in making the extra grant, but it was understood that the Charity Commissioners would be approached on the subject, and that the matter would be ultimately considered, as bearing upon all parts of the couoty. Mr P. H. Robeits asked that the County Body should consider whether a portion of the reserve fund could not be granted for the purpose ot enabl- ing the work to be begun immediately. In rsply to Mr S. K. Muspratt, it was stated that there would be no objection to the building being commenced if the full amount requisite were se- cured, or, in part, guaranteed. Respecting the proposed sale to Mr Gladstone of Hawarden Grammer School, it was decided to accept Mr Gladstone's offer of £ 350, and a further contribution of £13 towards the cost. The County Body had advertised for head teachers for the proposed schools at Rhyl, Holywell, and HawardeD. The Clerk stated he had received 58 applications for the Hawarden post, 24 for Hoiywall, and 31 fur Rhyl. The applications and testimonials were referred to special committees, acd it understood five candidates would be selected for *3?ch school, the testimonials of these candidates to be further considered by the County Body, at a meeting at Rhyl on the 28th May. The Education Bill had been placed on the agenda for discussion. The chairmaD stated that tho Clerk had forwarded a copy of the bill to each member, because the measure proposed ro make a very great change in the position and in the work of the County Govern- ing Body. He did not h8 the Clerk to send out these copies with a view to the discussion of any cont-ntious clauses. Hitherto that authority had carried on its work without a single division on party lines, and he did not intend to raise any dis- cussiou on those lines thatday.—(Hear, hear.) Since, however, the subject had been aceutioned on the agenda, be would only ask members in a non- partisan spirit to make any observations that might occur to them with regard to the manner in which the bill affected the work of that bodv. Ou the one hand, they lost their independence, for they would be placed under the County Council. On the other band, their powers apparently would be largely increased. Lord Mostyn said it seemed to him that they had not had time to digest the bill thoroughly, and he that an adjournment was very necessary as the bill was of vast importmce. The Rev J. Owen asked what powers would be delegated to the county governors by the bill. The Chairman said in the first place, they would be placed under the County Council by the absorp- tion of the Techrical Instruction Committee of the Couuty Council. As ho read the bill, the Com- mittee would cease to exist in Flintshire, and the County Governing Body wonld be charged with tho administration of the technic fund. Then there would be an addition to their powers by having a certain amount of control over elementary instruct- ion in the country. He was bouud to say it was very difficult at the present time to define the nature of that control when the bill ultimately emerged from tbe Committee in the House of Commons. The i-iev J. L. William? It is proposed to give this Body power of examining: schools ? The Chairtcan I understand the examination and inspection of elementary schools will be con- ducted under the County Governing Body. The Kev Mr Williams What becomes of the Government inspectors then ? The Chairman Well that is a difficult question. — (Laughter.) It is a question that has been asked ekewhere.— ^Laughter). The Education Depart. ment is to be left with a certain supervising and controling authority, but what the nature and extent of that uuthorit/ will be I cannot possibly say at the present momeut. The Rev R. Jones Will all the fuuds of elemeL- tary education pass through the governing body ? The Chairmaa replied that would not be so, but there would be a specai grant passing through the Governing Body. The nature and extent i of the powers of the County Governing Body were Very vajiue and determinate. The discussion terminated without any motion being proposed.
A parson was applied to for his advice by a member of his congregation, who com- plained oi the continual noise of a trombone made by his next-door neighbour. "Can a man," he asked, "who practices on such an instrument from morning to night be a good Christian?" "Such a man might possibly be a good Christian," the parson replied, "but hid next-door neighbour couldn't!" Mother: Are you sure you love him ?" Daughter: "Am I sure Do you see this dress ? Of course I do. What of It ? 7J "Willyou kindly tell me if it beara the Slightest resemblance to the present fashion?" Well, really it—er—it—" "It doesn't?" No." U Well, I'm wearing it because he likes it." An extensive Variety of Views and Sou- Aenors at Amos Brothers, 13, Sussex street, Rhvl.

ALLEGED SHAM ARMY AGENT. A few days since a man who represented him- self as Captain Worth, arrived in Lurgan, and said he had been commissioned by the Commisariat Department at Dublin to make arrangements for quartering 5,000 troops in Lurgan during the ensuing six months under the mobilisation scheme. It is alleged that he negotiated with the leading tradesmen for provisioning the force, and accepted contracts for the supplies of meat, bread, &e. On enquiry at headquarters, however, it was asserted that the man was unknown. He was accordingly arrested and remanded to Armagh Gaol.
SHOCKING DEATH OF A CYCLIST. A correspondent reports a shocking bicycle accident, near Largs, Ayrshire. The town is approached by a zigzag declivity, along which a young man named Warde, of Glasgow, was riding on Sunday, when his machine, owing to the steep- ness of the descent, became unmanageable, and dashed into the rock through which the road is cut with such terrible violence that the rider's neck was broken and his body otherwise much lacerated. Death was instantaneous. This steep is recog- nised as so dangerous that the Cycling Tourists' Club some time since had a warning board erected near the scene of Sunday's acci- dent.
THE YORKSHIRE COLLIERY DISASTER. On Saturday afternoon the exploring party at Mickletield Colliery came across a miner named Arthur Whit taker, who exhibited some signs of life. With all speed the man was brought to the surface and taken to the temporary hospital, and later in the day was removed to Leeds Infirmary, where he died. The explorers had been withm fifteen yards of him on Friday, but had been beaten back by the afterdamp. He was only just breathing when found, and faint hopes of his recovery were entertained from the first. All the bodies have now been recovered except four. On Sunday afternoon thirty of the victims were interred in the churchyard at Mickletield, the Bishop of Beverley officiating, in the presence of thousands of spectators.
MEXICO AND THE SANTA CRUZ INDIANS. A correspondent in British Honduras writes as follows under date of April the 14 The chiefs of the Santa Cruz Indians have twice recently written to the British Government, through the district Commissioner of the Corozal, asking for advice and information with regard to the Mexicans, whom they know are on the move against them, They also state that they would begin to resist them as soon as the Mexican troops got within three miles of the frontier of their self-defined territory. The Indians are very suspicious now of strangers who may be cutting logwood or other timber in their territory, and three weeks ago thrashed a respectable negro because they thought he was giving the Mexicans information with regard to themselves and their doing.

SILK FROM WOOD PULP. There will shortly be started in Lancashire a new industry of a character so novel that the mention of it may be suggestive of an absurdity rather than of sober truth. It will be one for nothing less than the manufacture of silk out of wood pulp. Quixotic as the idea seems, it has already been established that silk, or rather artili'-ial silk, can be so made that it is especially suitable for working-up with natural silk, cotton, or wool, for dress material, ribbons, trimmings, church decorations, vestments, « £ :c. that the artificial silk can scarcely be distinguished from that for which we have hitherto depended on the silkworm and that it can be sold at prices much lower, and still leave a substantial profit. A factory, which will cost is to be built near, to Manchester for the manufacture of artificial silk yarn from wood-pulp for sale to weavers who will work it up by means of their existif ? machinery.
AFFAIRS AT COOMASSIE. The Rev. Denis Kemp, of the Wesleyan Mission- ary Society, who was a passenger from West Africa by the Royal Mail steamship Bathurst, which has arrived at Liverpool, has given some interesting details of affairs at Coomassie, which he recently visited. The chief operation then being carried on was the erection of a fort in the centre of the town, the materials used being both brick and stone. A space of 200 hundred yards is being cleared round the structure, and in this area no buildings or trees will be permitted. At each of four corners will be a turret, on which are to be mounted Maxim guns. The notorious execution grove is now a thing of the past, and although skulls and bones are still to be met with, the great majority have been buried by the British. Road- making operations are being commenced, and before long a magnificent road will be made, not merely between the Gold Coast proper and the Asbanti capital, but also to the famous Nooranza country. All the chiefs have surrendered to Governor Maxwell their instruments of torture. A magnificent water well has been sunk in the fort, which would be important in the event of a seige.
DR. HERZ S EXTRADITION REFUSED. Sir John Bridge sat at Bow Street Police Court on Saturday to hear the arguments in reference to the extradition case of Dr. Herz, who is "wanted by the French Government on a charge of attempting to extort money in France. Mr. Sutton, who, with Mr. Costelloe, appeared for the French Government, submitted that it was quite clear Dr. Herz had had very extensive pecuniary transactions with Baron De Reinach, both with regard to the Panama Canal scheme and other matters. Dr. Herz obtained possession of in- criminating documents from Baron Reinach, and used them as a moans of extorting money. At the close of the arguments Sir John Bridge said that the prosecution must be discharged. There appeared to have been no business-like accounts 1 kept between Baron Reinach and Dr. Herz, and, on consideration of the whole case, he did not think a jury would convict. He therefore reiused to commit Dr. Ilerz for extradition. "One cannot," added Sir John, "have visited Bourne- mouth and seen Dr. Herz without feeling that the case is one of the saddest one has ever seen, or without a feeling of pity for the wife and children who have been so carefully tending him. At the same time this has not influenced me in my decision."
On Saturday afternoon William Redford, a native of Sheorness, blew his brains out with a revolver 011 the recreation ground, Rochester.

Beautiful weather, plenty of stock, and good "buyers" combined to make Mr Frank Lloyd's stock sale at St Asaph Smithfield, on Thursday, oce of the most successful ever beid in the Vale of Clwyd. Nearly 2,000 head of cattle, sheep, lambs, pigs, &c., crowded the pens, and probably the auctioneer wished his Smithfield double the size.

ACQUITTAL OF MAJOR LOTIIAIRE. REPORT OF THE TRIAL. An official report from Doma received by the Government of the Congo State in Brussels con. firms the annoucement. that Major Lothaire has been acquitted. It states that the Court was presided over by Judge Fin-hs, and M. Ghislain acted as Public Prosecutor. There were in addition four assessors. Major Lothaire gave an account of his operations against the chief Kibonghe, and stated that on January 1, 1895, he discovered at Lindi proofs of an alliance between Mr. Stokes and Kibonghe, Lieutenant Henry was sent, to arrest Stokes, and on his way he gained possession of a letter from Mr. Stokes to Kibonghe, saying, "I can help you. Have no fear. I am coming." Lieutenant Henry surprised Mr. Stokes in his camp when lie was expecting Kibonghe's son-in-law with reinforcements. Mr. Stokes was tried as a soldier, as lie had provoked civil war by allying himself with a native chief and placing himself at the head of an organised force. He was ex.:C'n,c;d in 24 hours, in conformity with the Coquilhat Statute. Lieutenant Henry and four native witnesses were then examined. They said that for a distance of ten hour's march round Stokes's camp the members of his caravan pillaged the country, many dead bodies being found; they hdd laid waste everything on the line of march. The Public Prosecutor eulogised the valour shown by Major Lothaire. He then said that he saw in the judgment of the court-martial, in which 1fr. Stokes was described as a British subject engaged in trade, a proof that Mr. Stokes was not acting in a military capacity. The deceased consequently had the right to appeal. The sentence was null and void because there was no preliminary inquiry, and owing to the absence of a recording clerk. Major Lothaire's act was therefore illegal. The prosecution considered that the act amounted to one of murder. M. Desaegher, counsel for the defence, addressed the Court, his speech occupying two days. He maintained that Mr. Stokes, being aware of the position of affairs in the Congo State, had organised war against the State, had violated its territory in conjunction with Kibonghe, had hurried up as soon as his ally had been arrested, and how, being ignorant of the presence of Major Lothaire, lie everywhere appealed to the Arabs to help Kibonghe. Counsel contended that the Major had afforded Mr. Stokes a fair trial, and had treated him as the head of a band of free- booters,, A registrar on the occasion of the trial was not an essential fom\r,]:ty. In pronouncing the sentence of confiscation of the deceased's goods his client might have committed an error, but he had not been guilty of an arbitrary act. He demanded the acquittal of the accused. The Public Prosecutor thereupon withdrew from the case, and after deliberating for 40 minutes the Court acquitted the prisoner.—The British Consul attended all the sittings of the Court, and no difference arose between him and the Public Prosecutor.

IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENT AT PRESTATYN INTERESTING MAY-DAY CEREMONY AT A BRICKWORKS. While Rhyl and other places on the coast were indulging in the mild dissipations of a May-day celebration in Vanity Fair," Pres- tatyn was engaged in a far more solid occupation in the inauguration of what will prove a most important epoch in the history of this rising watering place. In a locality where imposing erections in the shape of business and residential villas spring with surprising rapidity into existence, the opening of a brick- works with a first class plant is of paramount importance. Prestatyn is bountifully supplied by nature with all the attributes necessary to a marine health resort, and also in the matter of materials essential to its development as a residential district. The ozone laden sea breeze is tempered most agreeably* with the invigorating and health giving air of the hills. And the uplands that furnish such charming walks and scenery, also provide lime and limestone, for the more matter of fact purposes of building. Hard-worked denizens of grimy English towns may ruralize to their heart's content adding a clause to a new lease of life with every inhalation of breath on the verdure clad hills, or take a dip in the briny at their pleasure. While the builder may quarry stone for lime or rubb e, and carry sand for his mortar without in any way interfering with the pleasures of visitors. But the "stone period" is as dead as the dodo in Prestatyn Brick is the important factor that is called for on all hands. In this direction again nature has endowed the locality with a bed of clay, in every way adapted to brickmaking. The only drawback hitherto felt was the slow process of handmaking. and consequently, the supply had to be transmitted to the place from other neighbourhoods, inasmuch as the capabilities of the local works fell far short of the demands made on their resources. All that, however, is now changed. The old works at Penrhwylfa were recently acquired by Messrs John Jones, Sefton, and Mr Goronwy Jones, who at once took steps to develope the property, and put themselves in a position to cope with the demand already existing, and the greatly in- creased requirements that are bound 10 arise in the near future. Tbe new partners have laid down a plant constructed on the most improved and modern principles. A double roller machine capable of turning out from 10,000 to 12,000 bricks a day has been erected, by Messrs Whitehead & Co., of Preston. This is driven by a tirQt-class engine of 12 horse power; supplied with steam by an immense galloway boiler. Practical brickmakers speak of Whitehead's machinery as among the best procurable, and the one laid down at the Prestatyn Brickworks is one of the best and latest turned out by that emminent firm. The tempered clay having been worked into proper consistency is moulded into a continuous bar, and ejected on to five rollers on which it is carried to the cutting table, to be cut into brick by the wire-cut process. A great im- provement is claimed for this machine in the provision made for the prevention of the passing of any foreign substance into the rollers. For instance a stone too large and too hard to be crushed and rendered useable, getting into the rollers would have the effect of immediately stopping them (without interfering or stopping the other portions of the machine) and po enable the attendant to remove the obstacle without risk of'breakage of any sort. From the cutting table the green bricks are wheeled into the drying shed, of which there are two in course of construction, each covering an area of ninety feet by twenty When completed these sheds will be floored with iron plates, undei which a system of pipes will be laid for drying purposes. The next process of course is the burning, and for this capacious kilns will be provided on the Hoffman principle, the present one being quite inadequate to the capabilities of the machinery, the whole being under the charge of the manager, Mr John Davies, the former proprietor of the works. In addition to the engine house, drying sheds, and other buildings necessary to the purposes of brick making, there are spacious stables, &c erected. The quality is such as will enable the proprietors to extend their works in the direction of manufacturing pressed bricks, and we believe white bricks as well. Mr John Jones and Mr Goronwy Jones are certainly to be congratulated on the spirit of enterprise they have displayed in the concern. The works were formally opened on Friday afternoon, when there was a very large com- pany of spectators present, including Revs. E. Johnson, Ezra Jones, Messrs E. Hunt, Robert Lewis, John Jones (senr), Sefton; John Pritchard. George Williams, George Jones, D. James, Whalley, and full staff of employees. Mr Johnson, of Messrs Whitehead & Co., superintended the starting of the machinery. Mr Goronwy Jones cut the first brick delivered by the machine, and Mr John Jones, Sefton (the other partner) wheeled the first barrowful of green bricks to the drying shed. Duung the afternoon. Mr John Williams, Photo- grapher, Rhyl, took several pictures of the works, the spectators, and so on. In the evening a large company was enter- tained by Messrs Jones to supper in the Liberal Club Room. Miss Jones, confectioner, High Street, had been entrusted with the carrying out of this part of the day's proceedings, and excellently well did she per- form her alloted task. A substantial repast of cold beef and ham. bread and butter, currant bread, and a variety of cakes, with tea and coffee was served, and greatly enjoyed after the previous outing. After the tables were cleared, a little meeting was held under the presidency of Mr John Jones, supporting him on the platform were Mr C. McLaren, M.P., Mr Goronwy Jones, Revs Ezra Jones, Ezra Johnson, Messrs R. Davies, chairman of the Parish Council; John Hughes. P.C., and R.D.C., John Pritchard, P.C.; Thomas Williams, P.C. Among those present were Dr Griffith, Messrs James Dowell, D. T. James, John Davies, Thomas Hughes, George Jones, &c., &c., together with a large number of ladies. The chairman said a jkind of toast list had been placed in his hand, and he had very great pleasure in proposing the first, "The Queen and Royal Family." He was very glad to notice that the Royal Family were taking a little more interest in Wales now (applause). Two years ago the Prince of Wales was in North Wales —in Carnarvon and Rhyl, and he had promised to go to Aberystwyth this summer. Wherever the Prince went to he (the speaker) was sure he would find no more loyal people than the Welsh (cheers). He would ask them to show their appreciation of the toast by singing the "National Anthem." The whole company thereupon stood up and sang God save the Queen. The Rev Ezra Johnson rose to propose success to the" Parish Council." In doing so he adpiitted that he knew, but very little of the Council. It is true he had been asked to allow himself to be nominated, but as he was so very frequently from home he would be unable to attend, and as he did not believe in figure heads he declined. He complimented the Council upon what it had already done, and hoped they would do all they could to enhance the charms of Prestatyn—that Naples of Wales. Somebody said "see Naples and die," but he would say "see Prestatyn and live" (applause). Let them look after those beautiful footpaths they had. It was a very pleasant thing to see young men and their sweethearts, enjoying rambles in rural foot- paths away from the more frequented thoroughfares (laughter and cheers). Let them preserve those footpaths. Of course he knew that the closing of some paths ia the neigh- bourhood had been of very^great benefit to the parish. In such cases, of course, it was wise to allow footpaths to be closed. But in the matter of rural footpaths the greatest discretion must be observed (hear, hear). He wished the Parish Council every success. On the suggestion of the Chairman the company responded to the toast by passing a cordial vote of confidence in the Parish Council* Mr R. Davies (the chairman of the Council) in reply said he felt very gratified to see so many present at that unique gathering, to enjoy the hospitality of their friends. Referring to the work of'the Council, he said they had not been indifferent to the topics referred to by Mr Johnson. He was afraid that gentleman did did not patronise the Iihyl Advertiser, or he would have seen a record a good many things things the Parish Council had done, especially in the matter of footpaths (loud applause). Mr John Hughes also responded, speaking in the vernacular. He observed that the Council had done their best. Just a few hours, before coming to that room, he had heard that their efforts to induce the Railway Company to place a footway across the line where the level crossing now was had been successful. A footbridge six feet wide would be erected there (cheers). The Parish Council would have justified its existence, if it had only done that much for the place (applause). Then in the matter of footpaths they bad done their part. They were fully alive to requirements of Prestatyn. The most important thing was the sewerage. As they were aware the St.Asaph people had committed enough blundersover that business, they would not k them to do any more, but would endeavour to get the power into their own hands (applause). They had taken up the matter of lighting the place, and would do many more things only they were handicapped by the want of money. However, they intended to go ahead (applause). Mr Thomas Williams, Bradford House, also replied, and said he was glad of the opportunity to see such a, pleasant sight as that presented that evening. The promoters had given them without exception the opportunity to join the feast, and there was no necessity fogo a second time "to the highways and fields" to invite the guests. And all had enjoyed themselves (cheers). He submitted that the Council had not been short of the confidence reposed in it They all knew that it bad only been in existence a little over a year and a half. But what was the work they had done 1 It could be seen at night (laughter). But there was much more to he done, and he hoped they would work in the future as they had done in the past (cheers). He expected a very happy future for Prestatyn. He wished every success to the friends in their enterprise. They had started that day by steam—(laughter) —he hoped they would finish with gold (renewed laughter and applause) The Rev. Ezra Jones proposed The House of Commons, and their County and Borough Members," and referred to Mr S. Smith and Mr Herbert Lewis as sterling men of great ability and philanthropy. Mr Charles McLaren, M.P.. in responding. said he was quite sure they took a keen interest in political matters at Prestatyn. And with political clubs in the place they were not going to lose interest in the House of Commons. As for himself, he was not likely to lose interest, for he was at two o'clock that morning, when he hoped they were all comfortably asleep in bed, perambulating the division lobbies of the House of Commons. But they were there that day to celebrate an important development in the brickworks established close to them. He never came to Prestatyn without seeing some- thing new. And now it was a new way to make bricks. Now, bricks meant houses, and houses meant property, and none had done more to- wards developing property in Prestatyn than his friends, Mr Sefton Jones and Mr Goronwy Jones (cheers). The houses they had built in the place were recognised as among the most attractive—" the Naples of the North," as Mr Johnson had described it (applause). He went on to dwell on the importance of aiming at developing Prestatyn as a residential place for private families, which he considered was more important at the present stage than pro moting it simply as a seaside resort for summer visitors and in order to do that, those interes- ted in building should exercise taste in the style of architecture- He also urged the wisdom of reasonable expenditure in laying out grounds and planting trees surrounding the dwellings. He pointed out the necessity of paying atten- tion without loss of time to the sewerage ques- tion, and the proper control of the foreshore (applause). Mr John Pritchard, in a characteristic and pithy speech, proposed Success to the Pres- tatyn Brickworks." He hoped irom the bottom ot his heart it would be a success. He knew there was no better clay to be had for the purpose in the whole country, and he had often felt that it was a great pity that they had been all these years obliged to import from other parts what could be produced equally as well in their own immediate neigoourhood-paying an enor- mous lot of money to the Railway Company every year which ought to go into the pockets of the inhabitants (applause). Mr Pritchard wound up with the following poetical effusion of his own composition :— Hir oes i'r boneddwyr sy'n cychwyti eleni, Yn odrau ein dyffryn, waith y priddfeini, Hir oes f'o i'r meistriaid, y gweithwyi yu onest yn wyneb goleuni, Hir oes i'r bobol sy'n prynu y meini, Hir oes f'o i'r dynion sy'n gosod y lheiuy, Hir oes yn y diwedd i waith y priddfeini. Mr Goronwy Jones, in responding, said he never experienced such difficulty in speaking. He was extremely obliged to Mr McLaren and all for their presence there that evening. He had been repeatedly asked why he and his esteemed friend Mr John Jones, had embarked upon such an undertaking; had they not sufficient to do] Well, he could sincerely say that neither of them were actuated entirely by mercenary or selfish motives. They knew that if such an enterprise succeeded it could not but benefit a large number besides themselves, and this they heartily wished it to do. The Prestatyn Brickworks was but yet in its in- fancy it is true, and he felt inclined to ask, "What will this child be I" If it fails, the proprietors only will be the direct sufferers, but if it succeeded, others would share iu the success. Every one employed and connected with the works would in a substantial way be made to feel that they had had a hand in it, and would be entitled to be recompensed for it; and with the honest co-operation of the employees, under the superintendence of their friend and manager, Mr John Davies, the pro- prietors would feel assured of the success of the Prestatyn Brickworks (applause). Mr John Jones also briefly responded. He said he wished to confirm all that had been said by his partner. They had done all in their power to start the concern on a proper basis, and were prepared to continue to do all in their power to ensure its future success, but they knew little or nothing about bricks; they had to trust to those they employed, and they did trust them, and they believed that every man and boy about the place would do his utmost to do his work well, and he promised them that if the works succeeded, they should all share in the success if there will be any profit it the end of the year, every one em- ployed would receive a bonus. If all went on well they hoped in time to put up cottages, each having a garden, &c., and within easy distance to the works for their employees. He believed that there was much to be done in this parish in improving workmens dwell- ings, and they were determined with God's blessing to do what little may be in their power in this direction (applause). He earnestly hoped in twelve months time to invite them all there again, and then be in a position to assure them that al the kind wishes expressed that night, had been fultilled to the letter kloud cheers). Mr David James, Mr James Dowell, Mr Littler, and Mr John Davies, also spoke.
The hairdresser thought he had good game in the mild-looking young man who had just entered. But he was mistaken. When lie got him entangled in the folds of the wrapper, and comfortably settled in the chair, the artist in hair commenced operations." Your hair is getting very thin sir," he said I suppose it falls out a good deal ?" Yes, indeed," was the reply; it's awfully quarrelsome. I really think 1 must get it bound over to keep the peace. Then nothing was to be heard save the snip of the barber's scissors.

LOCAL MA.RKSTS. CORN MARKET OF THE WEEK. Business in British wheat was quiet during the past week, and the prices exceedingly low, averaging from 2-ls per quaster in provincial markets to 2,5s in London. Trade in ;foreign wheat was also weak, presumably because of the immense supplies im- ported from Russia. Indian Icorn exhibited a tendency to decline. In Bristol au advance of 6d per quarter was recorded in barley, while in London it w'< stationary, and not at all in demand in the country. In London on Monday there was but a sparse attendance of buyers in the market Homo wheit though slow maintained its prices, while a reduction of from :1rl to 6d per quait-;r had to be accepted to effect pales in foreign samples. Flour remained slC'iidy, but there was very little business done. Barley shewed an improved tone, aud in some cases an iidvance 3d:w",s secured. Oats, peas and beans selling quietly ai old prices.
