Mr. Elliott Lees was on Wednesday re- turned for Birkenhead by a majority of 106 over Mr. W. H. Lever. The fight was a very keen one, and much excitement prevailed. Mr. P. P. Pennant, of Nantlys, was on Wednesday elected chairman of Flintshire Quarter Sessions, in the place of the late Mr. J. Scott Bankes. Mr. John Eldon Bankes was elected vice-chairman. It is reported that the river Dee has been poisoned for several miles in Denbighshire, and that hundreds of dead fish have been cast ashore. The Fishery Board are institu- ting a vigorous inquiry. The will of the late Alderman W. Johnson, J.P., Broughton-hall, Hawarden, and Chester, who was locally known as The Miller of the Dee," has been proved, the value for probate duty of his personal estate being Z4,49 2. An extraordinary scene was witnessed on Tuesday, on Buckley Common, a large gang of colliers, under Mr. Alfred Wright, of Queensferry, demolishing the fencing of the enclosure erected by the Flintshire Volunteer Engineeis. Mr. Gladstone on Monday attended the marriage of Miss Dorothy Drew's nurse. The ceremony was performed in Hawarden Parish Church, and Miss Dorothy was the bridesmaid. The right hon. gentleman after- wards travelled to Colwyn Bay, where he will remain some days. Fire was discovered about seven o'clock on Saturday morning at Messrs. Jeffs and Co.'s (fish merchants) shop, Colwyn Bay. The flames were issuing through the doorway and windows, which were smashed. As there was no other way for the occupants to escape, Mr. Jeffs tied blankets and sheets together j whereby he lowered mmself and his family on to a verandah, and along this they escaped through a neighbour's window. The fire was subsequently extinguished, but not before the whole stock and fixtures were destroyed.

DAVID GRIFFITIIs.-On Wednesday afternoon last, at the residence of Mrs. DunLaviu, Llandudno, the death took place of Mr. David Griffiths, Chapel-terrace, Whitford-street, at the age of 62 years. The deceased bad been failing for some time, and had gone to his sister's house 5, Lansdowno terrace, Llandudno, to recruit his health. Mr. Griffiths was a native of St. Asaph, and had been the foreman at Messrs. P. M. Evans' printing establishment in this town, from 1877 to his death. He came to Holywell in the time of the late Mr. P. M. Evans, to finish his apprenticeship, and remained until 1866, and in the intervening years, before he returned as foreman, ho gained experience as a reader in a large Scotch book publishing firm. The dcooased was distinguished for his remarkable knowledge of tlm WcL h language, beinj; credited as orle oi the beat readers in Walos. Ho was frequently the adjudicator on translations at Eiatoddfodau, ho had also an extensive knowledge of the §vripturou, Egr many years he had been a Sunday School teacher at Roboboth Cnapol, and upon ttfe Qfitablipbment of tho » English Prisi-.bytian cause In Holywell, he tndeTitifipd hirornlf Tvith t,>t bor, and bad acted a* Church secretary until lafcly. ) M-AKIIIA&II OF MB EVAN BRYAN (JUNICK). On Wednesday last, in be.-iut,ilal wtallior, t'-e marriage took place at Manchester Cathedral, of Evan Jooes, second sou of Mr Evan Bc^an, Trade Hail, Holy- well and Mwdwl Eithio, Cariuel, with Elizt Annio, only daughter of the late Mr. Robert Davies, of MaecJerfiold. The marriage took place from the Trevelyan Hotel, CúrfJoratim street, Manchester, and the bridal party drove to the Cathedral, the ceremony taking place at one o'clouk. The sua shone with brilliancy as the wedding party entered the Church. Tho bride was artired in a beautiful dress of eleciric biae with velvet trimming, and hat to match. Miss Maggie Bryan, sibt seethe bnde- groom, was bridesmaid, and wore a dress of light ropp trimmed with electric blue. Misa Slater was also a bri iepinaid and wore a similar dress The laliss wore gold curb brooches, the gifts of the bridegroom Mr John Conway Bryan, eldest brother of the bridegroom aetrd as "best-man" and Mr Ernest Bryan, brother, was also of the party Mrs Davies, mother of the bride, wIJro a dress of brown and gold, aud Mrs Evan Bryan, mother of the bridegroom, black satin and heliotrope The marriage ceremony was performed by the Rev Henry A Hudson, Nl A, The wedding brei»kfa?t was partaken of at the Trevelyan Hotel, and among the party, brides those already mentioned, were Mrs and Misa S.'atfr, Mr and Mrs Underbill, Miss Lloyd, &o The happy couple Itfi Maacus-" ter about four o'clock for London The projj&t-s to both bride and bridegroom wore very numerous and of a valuable and useful description. THE HOLT WELL CHURCH OHORAL SOCIETY.—The annual meeting of thin Choral Eooioty was held on Wednesday evening at St. Winefred's Iiil], the Rev. R. O. Williams, president, in the chair. The hOD. secretary, Mr. Walter Garner, submitted a balance sheet of tho year's accounts, which showed a highly satisfactory state of the finances, there being a substantial balance in hand. The Society's officers were re-elected, including the secretary, Mr. Walter Garner, to whom a cordial vote of thanks was accorded for his eervioes dur- ing tho past year. Miss Johnson Jones (ristyn), who gave her services as acoompanist, was p?o- s T'tod with the thanks of the meeting and reqa- sted to again undertake the work. Mitis Jones sigrdied her readiness to do ao. It was unaairaously de- cided that Mr. E. Robinson, of Chester, should be again ajpoi^ted the conductor of th a j,- It was felt that the confidence which the Society placed in Mr. Robinson three years ngo bad been fully justified, and Mr. Garner intimated that he was able to &tato that Mr. Rabinson had in view of the Society re-staitiug reserved Monday even- iugs. On other evenings he was engaged with choral societifs in several other places in and around Cheater. The meeting resolved that the praoticea should be held on Monday eveDings at seven o'clock as heretofore. A number of works by various composers were submitted to the meeting for selection, and after a. free discussion it was thought desirable to take up "The Merry Men of Sherwood Forest," by Birch, a distinctly musical operetta in three act J. The chorus is of an attrac- tive character, and the work will certainly be popular among the members. It is also tugge^ted that the oratorio, The Woman of Samaria," by Steriidale BenLiott, should be taken up in the second half of tha season, and most probably the suggestion will bo carried out. The practices will commence on Monday evening next, at 7 o'clock, at Sr. Wi'-efrcd's Ilall, and Mr. Garner (Cross- street), the secretary, would be pleased to receive the names of intending members a early as possible. APTOMMAS' HARP RECITAI.S.-The public patron- age of tho harp redal at the Assembly Halj, on Monday evening last, by Mr. and Mrs. Aptomman, though fair, yet was not commensurate with the quality of tho performances of the talented artistes, and what they richly deserved, Wales, is popularly known aa, and Eisfeeddfodwr pride themselves in singing the praiee of Gwlad y delyn," but there appears to be an immense gulf separating the cry for the preservation and cultivation or things national, and the support of national art. This was distinctly evident on Monday night. Those who did pay a visit to the Assembly Hall, were rewarded by the accomplished pkying of classical music on the harp, by two of the most prominent exponents Wi'rAie aaost beautiful of stringed instruments. Not oixj as do they appear, but as pom- posars, and the grand duet for t"-o The Christian," was a most descriptive piece of music of the most thrilling effect. In four movements, the music is given with a strength and power of do. scription Miltonian in its vividness. Words aro needless to the music to convoy to tho mind the impressions of the themes, and the imagination is carried from the "agitation, excitement and bewilderment of the lost soul," to the- happy rest of the Believer in Glory. Nothing could be more strikingly suggestive than the mnsio of the first movement. Tho second movement, at the sight of the Cross, anguish and shame gave way to unutterable joy and peace." The tranquility of this movement after the agitated passages, was expressive and followed by a "conflict with sin and tempta- tion," in au insinuative theme, as the singing of a syren floating over the waters, twanging the harps in the most dulcet manner. A transition oocurs, the tempter presses and the conflict fierce and loud, wages with dramatie force, and gradually dies away. "The new song" of the last movement is a beautiful strain of melody, the idea conveyed being—the new song caught up by the believer, in whose hands is placod tho Golden Harp as ho enters into Glory." Undoubtedly this was the piece de resistance of the recital, and its performance fully meritod the hearty applause which was accorded at the close. An intensely pretty solo was tho old melody of Home, sweet home," by Mrs. Alt-)mvaas. What Home, sweet home" is to the English, so is All through the night (Ar hyd y nos) to the Welsh. Its plaintive and almost weird melody ran through the variations of F. Chatterton'a bardie fantasia on the air with attractive effoot. The operatic fantasia onalvars" -1 Luerezia Borgia" by Mr, Aptommas, was a capital performance. The other pieces, chiefly Welsh, Irish and American melodies (the latter by desire), were performed in a manner that drew forth tho warmest cnconiums. Aptommus' arrangement of Welsh melodies in duet, were encored and responded to, by a repetition of the Men of Harleoh and Ap Shenkin." It may be stated that Mr. Aptommas was tho prize winnor at the World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago, 1893, and the beautiful harps played upon by Mr. and Mrs. Apthomas are by the firm of Lyon and Healy, Chicago. Custom is a great thing and it may be remarked that the close of the recital was not marked in the customary way usual atsnch gatherings, possibly it was an omission. SCHOOL BOARD MEETING. The monthly mooting of the above School Board was held on Tuesday afternoon, when there were present Messrs, H. T. Barker (chairman), E. Bryan, Joseph Jones, S. Jonos, and Thomas Humphreys. Mr. Lambert forwarded an apology for non-attend- ance- SCHOOL MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE. The School Management Committee's report shewed that the schools bad been duly visited. The Holywell schools showed a falling off in the average attendance by G in the girls and 16 in the infants' department; there was an improvement of 2 in the boys' department. The Bagillt Schools showed a substantial increase in the three departments, viz. 17 boys, 14 girls, and 12 infants. It was considered by the committee that the recent epidemio of scarlet fever had had a material effect on the town schools. Air. D. Pierce, head master of the Halkyn-street Schools, reported that the whole of the pupil teachers had resumed their duties. He alsa reported that his son, who had been employed as a temporary help, bad won a substantial exhibition at O.Tt.strv. He would be obliged for a cheque for 30s. for the month, and the same was granted.—Considerable misunder- standing prevailing ns to the age at which children can leave school, and a case in point having been mentioned, tbo Clerk was requested to prepare an explanatory note for distribution throughout the neighbourhood.

The Clerk stated that a letter had been received from the Education Department with regard fco the steps now being takon for the ac.qaigjti«a (I" a suitable site for the new school at Grioul[oJd. The correspondence in hand w,is not in a complete trtttf, and he could not report further. The Board had received a letter from Mr. (lnerssnf Rigilit, in which he stated that Dr. Itiohardron iscibu" epon any terms to ell a otte in Giewulield LU Saxii for the proposed school. In consequence of the reply the Committee had considered the stepi necessary to take out a provisional order. They considered that they must procure the site as there was none other suitable. For the purpose of carrying out the legal requirements for obtaining the provisional o.der, the services of Mr. Richard Bromley, solioitor, had been engage-i. FEVKR > AND THE CLOSING OF SCHOOLS. Mr. Humphreys asked was scarlet fever still pre- valent in Hjlywell.—The Clerk replied that he believed it Wi" almost played out.—Mr. Humphreys Is it a fa';t that the fever is on still ?—The Clerk replied that the greater number of the children had the fever du.ing the summer hclidap. -.Mr. Thos.

Itisstrange that one sohool should bo closed on account of fever and the other allowed to remain open.—The Chair- man It depends a great deal upon the extent of the epidemio.— Mr. Humphreys: There were only five or fix eases of fever at Bagillt, but a great muny more in Holy well.—Mr. S.

<+. DISAPPOINTED BRIDAL PARTY- We have beard and read of suoh disappointments as a result of tbe non appearance of the officiating minister. We have seen numerous excuses offered when not appearing at the appointed hour, thus disappointing tbe two that would be made aa one. Some of these excuses were chimerio and ludicrous others valid. The disappointment and confusIOn, however, were the same whatever the excuse may have \)eüll. The only real and valid excuse for tardiness, of which wo remember having read, is inability owing to sudden illness, which may over, take us unawares and unannounced. The Rev. J. Wilson Ilaffeudeo, of 25, Whitehall Road, Bordesloy Green, Birmingham, never missed an appointment of this kind, but he says I had fcr years, since I left India, been a perfect martyr to indigestion, caused by sluggish liver, and had tried various doctors aod their medicines without any permanent relief. I was induced to try Warner's Safe Cure aud Pills, with the result that I am now completely restored to health and I find by con- tinuing to take one pill after dinner and one dose of Warner's Safe Cure early every morning, they keep wy digestive organs in good working order. I have also recommended Warner's Safe Cure to several friends who have derived the greatest benefit from it.

HALKYN. HARVEST FESTIVAL. The usual thanksgiving services were held in the Parish Church on Wednes- day, the 10th inst.

Francis, Miss Hugnes, Miss Green and the Misses Williams, the windows and pillars. Choice flowers and fruits wore sent by the Duchess of Westminster, and were placed on the altar.

Jones, Rhusesmor, ably presided at the organ, and Mr. Jones, Halkyn, conducted. The Welsh anthem was 110, Arglwydd, mor liosog," Barnby. la the evening the singing was not as congregational as it might have been, owing, no doubt, to a recent change in the Welsh hymn be ok.

BUCKLEY. j EXTRAORDIN ARY SCENES. J Tho ^i: pute as to the public rights on Buckley Common culminated on Tuesday in a gang of fifty colliers demolishing the fencing of the enclosure, erected by the Flintshire Volunteer Engineers. Major Gibson, the commanding officer of the corps, received the following letter" Church-lane, Mold, 9th October, 1891.-S r,-I have been con- sulted by the Rev. Joseph Davies, Bukley, as to your action in closing two footpaths over Buokiey Comir.on. This, he understands, you are doing for the purpose of holding sports en the Common on Saturday next. He is informed that the proceeds are to be given to tho unemployed at Buckley, and, as this is so, my olient will not assert his right to use the footpaths till after the sports. Also, as ycu are well aware, you have now closed two well-known public paths. I am, however, instructed to inform you that unless the obstructions are cleared by you on the Monday following the sports, my client will himself take the necessary f-teps to remove the same. -I am, &c., G. H. Simon, solicitor." Major Gib- son replied on the 12th inst.:—"If your client proceeds by due course of law, and the law says I must re-open tbe so-called footpaths, I shall of conrso obey the law, but if he damages our property, or incites, aids, or abets others to do so, the con- scquences will of course be on his shoulders. 1 beg, however, to say that, having regard to the public uses to which the lani is intended to be put, your client would, in my opinion, do well not to press his alleged right- and especially seeing that if such rights existed he could not enjoy them for more than three months out of the twelve until wa drained and levelled the ground, that there are good roads very near, and that the distance by them is only a few yards more than over the tracks called footpaths." It shouid be explained that in 1893 the commanding officer of the Volunteers secured three acres of the Common for use as a drill ground from Mr. Philip Bryan Davies-Cooke, lord of the manor. The land was granted on a fifty years' lease, under the Volun- teer Act of 1863. On Tuesday morning, shortly a,tor seven 0 clock, the Rev. Joseph Davies, who claims to be a freeholder of the Common, put in an appearance, accompanied by Mr. E. Ptt. rs, miners' ageut, and between 20 and 30 men. Mr. Davies carried a large banner, Mr. Peters an axe, and their followers were similarly equipped for the work of demolition. Four holes were first broken in the cor- rugated iron fencing at the outlets to the footpaths. Mr. Davies then fctated that his object bad been accomplished, but a Mr. Wright would arrive later and demolish the whole of the fencing. The second contingent, headed by Mr. Alfred Wright, of Queens Ferry, a freeholder in Hawarden parish, and consisting of thirty colliers, whom he had hired from the surrounding district, arrived shortly after eight o'clock. Each of these men was armed with an axe or hammer, and the gang presented a for- midable appearance. They at once set to work, and the "obstructions" were soon levelled to the ground. The stand, which had been erected for the sports last Saturday, was then attacked, whereupon Major Gibson, addressing Mr. Wright and his party, said You have asserted a right, or what you call a right, to this place, but I now caution you that you are doing wilful damage to property, and I shall hold you responsible for the consequences." Mr. Wright replied that ho would take all the risk and responsibility, and the work of the sledge- hammers continued. Though the demolition was witnea-ed by a crowd of some 200 people, no dis- turbance took place.
-» MOSTYN. THE MOSTYN LIBEAEY.—Mr. Gweuogfryn Evans, who has been appointed to catalogue the valuable Welsh manuscripts stored in various parts of the country, is now busily at work among the rich stores in Mostyn Hall library. WEECK ON THE WEST HOYLE.—The Thomas Mason, a coasting schooner hailing from Beaumaris, sank on the West Hoyle Bank at 10 40 on Sunday night. The Hoylake lifeboat went to the aid of the crew, who wore landed by the lifeboat a few minutes after twelve on Monday. There was a. strong wind blowing at tbe time, and the rescue was performed in a most gallant manner. The vessel soon after- wards disappeared. It seems that when she first got ashore the crew would not leave her, as they thought they might bo able to get her off. The Thomas Mason was about 100 tons burthen, and belonged to Roland Jones, of Moelfra, Anglesey. She was a very old vessel, having been built so long ago aa 1838.
YSCEIFIOG. OnOIR TBEAT.—On Saturday last, the members of the English choir of the Parish Church of Ysceifiog were entertained to tea by Mrs. Browne and Miss Moon, the Cottage, Nannerch. The choir consisting of 15 young girls marched in procession from the Church at 3 o'clock, accompanied by the Rev. E. Roberts, Curate. On their arrival at the Cottage, they were photographed by Mr. Moon, who is an excellent amateur; then they partook of the good things provided for them, and to which they did ample justice. A very pleasant aftemoon terminated with singing by the choir of two hymns, one of which was Now the day is over." Miss Morgan the Rectory, acted as accompanist.
