I To the School Board Electors of the Borough of Denbigh. I LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I thank you most sincerely for your great kindness in electing me M a member of the School Board, at the head of the poll, by the largest number of votes ever given to a School Board candidate, whether Churchman or Non-' conformist, since the establishment of the Board 24 years ago. This is all the more gratifying because I was unable personally to take any active part in the contest. I do not, however, regard this as 8 personal victory, but as a triumph for those who justly claimed as Churchmen and ratepayers the right to a fair share of direct representation on the Board. This claim they have fully substanti- ated, and that it received the endorsement of the ratepayers generally, the position on the poll of myself and my colleague fully proves. I heartily thank those kind friends who, at the sacrifice of much time, gave myself and Mr Humphreys such invaluable aid, and my thanks are especially due to my good friends, uhe working men, who, in large numbers, banded themselves together in defence of their principles, and generously gave their time and labour, prior to, and on the day of election in securing our return. To show my appreciation of the confidence reposed in me I shall strive earnestly to dis- charge my duties faithfully, and in the best interests both of the ratepayers and of t'ne children whose education is committed to the care of the Board. I remain, v "1)\<1 Ladies and Gentlemen, Your Obedient Servant, CHARLES COTTOM. Free Press Office, December 9th, 1898-

THE LATE ALDERMAN |E. T. JONES, J.P., OF DENBIGH. DEATH AND FUNERAL. DEATH AND FUNERAL. It is with the deepest feelings of regret that we record the death, at his residence, Britannia Buildings, Denbigh, on Saturday morning last, of Alderman E T Jones, J.P., one of Denbigh's best known and most respected tradesmen. The notice we gave in last week's issue of Mr Jones' illness was, sad to say, such as to prepare the townspeople for the end, though even then all earnestly hoped he might rally. The news of his death was everywhere received with the most profound regret, for Mr Jones was a man highly esteemed by the great bulk of his fellow-townsmen, and his upright conduct and beautifully blameless Christian life made him the admiration of all who admire true manhood, good citizenship and Christian character. In his departure the town and district loses one of those quiet, unostentatious, earnest, helpful, conscientious workers for the common weal of which we have too few and one whose place it will be most diffi- cult to fill especially is this true in the Christian circle in which he moved, and in reference to the Christian work he did. His logs to the English chapel will be simply irreparable. He was its strongest pillar, its most generous and large-hearted! supporter, as well as its most attentive and earnest worker its principal deacon (in- deed the only one left, for Mr Fraser and Mr W Price Jones have removed) as well as the chief of its Sunday school and leader in every branch of the good work done there. He took up the work here at the first inception of the Cause, by the earnest wish of the English Causes Association, was its first deacon and first helper, and from that day to the day of bis death he 8 never wavered in his allegiance to the little Cause, and never lacked in support or in extending sympathy to the good work done there. Indeed, it is no disparagement to others to say that but for his whole- hearted earnest support the good work could not have gone on, especially in the earlier years of the cause, whei. its main- tenance was a great struggle. The mem- bers and friends of this chapei mourn for him as for a spiiitual father t) whom they had always looked up with respect and confidence for wise and disc reet guidance aud leading. He has gone, eaving behind him a beautiful example cf fidelity and faithfulness for the younger men to follow with the true Christian iLstinct and zeal which lie always exhibited. Mr Jones, who has depart 3d in the 75th year of his age, was a bnght and pleasing specimen of the shrewd man of business, \vho by plodding, eonsciertiousness, just dealing, and uprightness in all his business transactions gained the confidence of a wide connection, and built up for himself a large and successful business. This con- fidence he not only gaineo, but retained to the end, as the vast business premises in High-street, so unusually large and com- modious for a town like Denbigh, are an expressive standing proof. Mr Jones was a native of Beaumaris, but early removed to Corwen, where he was brought up and served his apprenticeship. He spent the ear y years of his business career inrf the city of Chester. He came to Denbigh nearly half a century ago. Denbigh was always a good business town, but at that time the shops were small and unpretentious, the trade was circumscribed, and there was no railway communication. Mr Jenes was pro- gressive. As he built up his business so he made ample room for it; the portion of the present premises devoted to the ironmongery and residence being first of all built up, and then some quarter of a century ago he bought the adjoining premises, which we remember as a public- house-tbe (6 Old Swan" it was called, and the removal of which gave Mr Jones, as an ardent total abstainer, much pleasure This building was pulled down, the fine new warehouses erected thereon, and devoted, with the ample premises in the rear, to the implement and such-like portion of the business. The change was most pleasing, and besides giving a business premises most complete, the structure, combined with the existing building, stood out as an ornament to the town, and elicited the admiration of all who saw it as an example of what a successful public spirited man can do. But Mr Jones did not selfishly devote himself entirely to his own business, or pursue the policy of taking care of num- ber one." He was a truly public spirited man, and as such took a deep interest in all that pertained to the good of the town and the welfare of his fellow townsmen. As one who set the highest value upon total abstinence and all social and Christian work, he all his life helped forward temper- ance and Christian movements and was identified either as a member of the com- mittee or one of the more prominent officials of nearly every temperance society or similar association in the town and district. Efforts likely to help work of this kind found in him a ready supporter. He was one of the first helpers in the establish- ment of the Free Reading and Recreation Rooms, in conjunction with the late Dr Turnour and Mrs Mostyn and of Mr Gold Edwards, and retained his interest in and his membership of the committee of the institution till the close of his life. He was also an official and supporter of the Denbigh Provident Association and of other similar organisations for helping the working people. The practice of thrift found in him a ready advocate, and it was this and the desire to help forward a movement likely to be useful to the careful amongst the middle class, which no doubt led him to identify himself closely with the Denbigh- shire Building Society of which for many years he was a director, and of which latterly he experienced a proof of the con- fidence of his fellow directors by being elected chairman in succession to the late Mr Thomas Gee. He had for many years interested him- self in the Old Castle, his local knowledge, acquaintance with the history of the fine old building and archaeological tastes making him a great acquisition to, as well as his business qualifications made him a valuable member of the committee of management to which he had belonged for a great num- ber of years indeed from the time the V- I Woods and Forest Commissioners leased it fer a Publio Recreation Ground. He was an ardent educationalist. Ele- i mentary education found in him a practical supporter. He was a member of the committee of management of the old British Schools, and gave most valuable help to them until they came under the School Board in 1874. He was a strong advocate of Intermediate or Secondary education long years ago, and before it became the popular thing it is to-day. He took much interest in the old Grammar School; the education of his own sons was secured here, and was so thorough as to fit them for further studies and entering the higher walks of life in the medical pro. fession. For very many years he was one of the Governors of the Grammar School, under the former scheme, and that work was continued for the school after it changed its position by being taken over by the County Governing Body as a county school, Mr Jones having been elected one of the Local Governing Body, and if his abilities and position as a friend of educa- tion had been justly acknowledged by the people who had the formation of the County Governing Body, he would have been made a member of that Body. He was from an early period a great advocate of technical education, and took deep interest in the recent development of the same, being, to the end, a member of the B committee of management of the JLechnical 1 School. In the earlier efforts made here for spreading knowledge by the means of Extension lectures, and in similar ways he was interested and gave his time and influence iu carrying out such projects. His public work for the town dated back 8 to a very early period in his connection with the borough. Before the manage- ment of the roads and streets and the lighting of the same came under the control of the Council, but were managed by the Township Surveyors, whose work was voluntary, he for several years ren lered valuable service to the town in the capacity of Township Surveyor, and his practical knowledge was of immense vilue in this capacity. He was an advocate for and helper of the introduction of the railway system, whereby the town was first connected with Rhyl and with Chester and Corwen, and in later years he often advoca- ted the most desirable scheme for having a loop line from the present station to the top end of the town near the Smithfield, and then on to Llansannan and the upper parts of the country, which would open the 1 district and do vast good to the town of Denbigh. It is over 25 years ago that he yielded to the wish of his fellow ratepayers and entered the Council. His services there were of the highest possible value to o d the town, and this was recognised when some 18 years ago he was elected to the higher position of Alderman, a position which he filled, we are glad to say, up to the time of his death. As to the regrettable incident in connection with his re-election on the ninth of laat month we say nothing, but we feel sure that even those members of the Council who did not recognise past services by voting for his re-election, will now, equally with his hosts of friends in the town, be glad that that re-election was secured, and that as a member of the Council, which he had served so long, so faithfully, and so honourably, he died in harness." That he had the entire confidence and respect of the whole Council was shown in 187!), when he was unanimously elected Mayor of § the borough, the duties of which high office 1 he discharged with the greatest possible 1 credit to himsek and honour to the town | during that and the following year All his Mayoral work was done in that careful methodical and conscientious manner which entered into all his public as well as private work; and which was so much admired by his fellow workers in the town's affairs. Later on he was again honoured with the confidence of the Council, and served as Mayor during the year 1894. To the end he took the deepest interest in the work of the Council, and the time and labour he devoted to tht best interests of the ratepayers wnst strikingly proved by the fact that he las year made the highest attendances at Council and Committee meetings of any member of the Dody. His loss to the Council and to the town will be very great indeed. Mr Jones was appointed a magistrate of the borough in the year 1881, and the further honour of appointment as a magis- trate of the county was conferred upon him by the Lord Lieutenant in 1894. He dis- charged the duties with becoming dignity and conscientiousness, never showing a party or personal bias, but always acting with honour, discretion and broad-minded- ness, according to the evidence presented, or as the interests of the public dictated. As a politician Mr Jones had always been a moderate Liberal. He was no bigot, no partisan, he could recognise and acknowledge the good in all parties, and, though firmly attached to his own prin- ciples, was ever tolerant and scrupulously fair. He took little interest in what may be called party politics," and he was as far removed as possible from anything like the intolerant radicalism preached by the latter day politicians. His love of his country, its people, its literature, was very sincere and deep, but he regarded its true interests as best connected and bound up with the great nation as a whole. Mr Jones was an extremely well read man. He knew many subjects and knew them well. He could converse with profit to others on many important themes. He was a man of distinctly artistic tastes, loved the beautiful in nature and art, and was himself an artist of no mean order. His residence contains many beautiful little paintings which illustrate true genius, with a distinct taste, which if further cultivated would have made its mark publicly. In this artistic work he is closely followed by his daughter, Miss Mima Jones. Mr Jones had enjoyed very good health for his years, until latterly when he had shown signs of failing. A few weeks ago he caught a severe chill whilst attending a business meeting at the Building Society added to this came the natural anxiety and worry over the aldermanic question these acted prejudicially upon the disease from which he suffered and decreased his rallying power, and notwithstanding the loving care of hit devoted wife and daughter, and the skillful treatment of Dr Hughes, be suc- cumbed. Thus, briefly and imperfectly sketched, was the life of "the good man and true" whom Providence has removed, and upon whom the Great Master has set the seal of work well done, a race well won." la those ways mentioned and many others, which we are conscious of having left UD- recorded, he worked for his fellows and made himself useful in his day and genera- tion. Such an one the community could ill spare. The town and district will be the poorer in every way for his loss, bqt, as he lays aside the work of time and enters on the fuller life with its higher work, all who knew him must feel 'Tis not death, but life begun. The goal is reached the victory won." THE FUNERAL. This took place yesterday (Thursday), after- noon at two o'clock, when there was a great | demonstration of respect for the deceased, and I sympathy with the family. The whole of the I l'ihops of the town were closed from 1.30 until I after 3 o'clock, and the blinds at all the private I houses were drawn. By the express wish of B the family no flowers were to be sent, or there would have been numerous tributes of that kind the beautifully polished oak coffin with massive brass fittings and plate, contained only the most beautiful wreaths placed there by Mrs Jones and the members of the family.

Then came the general public in very large numbers and including all the professional men, leading tradesmen and other townspeople, as well as many from a distance, the pro- cession being a very long one. On reaching the English Chapel, in Vale" street, a halt wlls made for A SHORT FUNERAL SERVICE. The coffin, with the beautiful familv wreaths upon it, was placed in front of the Communion rails. The pulpit, communion table, etc., were draped in black, The relatives and friends occupied the front seats. The chapel was quickly crowded and a large number were unable to gain admittance. The service was most appropriate and beautiful in its sim- plicity, a solemn spirit of deep reverence pervading the whole congregation. It struck us as o much in keeping with the quiet un- ostentatious character of the one who lay in peaceful quietude before the worshippers. The service was conducted by the pastor, the Rev Joseph Evans, who evidently keenly felt the loss he and the church have sustained. It opened with the singing of the well-known hymn, Ye servants of the Lord, Each in his office wait; Observant of His heavenly word Ar d watchful at His gate." Mr Evans then read a very appropriate selection of scripture, dealing with the short- ness of life, propounding the momentous question "If a man die shall he live again," and answering it by the divine promises of a life beyond the gr,.ve for all who by faith rested on Him, who is the resurrection of the life." Prayer was then offered by the Rev J Williams, of Ruthin, who feelingly alluded to the deceased and besought strength and com- fort for the widow and orphans in their distress and bereavement.

Then was sang the Welsh hymn, Mor ddedwydd yw y rhai trwy ffydd, Sy'n myn'd o blith y byw; Eu henwau'n peragoli sydd, A'u hfin -mor dawel yw!" The Rev Benjamin Hughes. of St Asaph, then prayed in Welsh with much feeling. The service closed with the fine old funeral hymn, Our God our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come, Our shelter from the stormy blast, And our eternal home.

MISS HALLIE Q. BROWN'S SECOND VISIT TO DENBIGH. On Tuesday evening at the DriIJ. Hall. Den- bigh, a very large audience assembled to welcome once again that gifted and eminent American reciter, Miss H Q Brown, who had come to give a series of her marvellous recita- tion- in aid of the funds of the English Chapel, Denbigh. His Worship the Mayor (E A Tumour, Esq.), who was accompanied by the Mayoress (Miss Turnour) and Mrs Turnour, Grove House, presided. In a very appropriate and genial speech his Worship remarked that it gave him great pleasure to preside, not only on his own account, because of the respect he entertained for all connected with the English Chapel, but also because of the very deep interest which his late revered father had taken in that cause, which he always felt it a great privilege to support in any way he could. He then alluded to the very severe loss which the friends of the chapel had sustained through the lamented death of Mr E T Jones, who from its very commencement had been one sf the chief supporters, and indeed the main-sfay of the chapel and of the good work carried on there. He expressed his own persona1 grief and that of the audience at the death of Mr E T Jones, and their deep sympathy with Mrs Jones and family. He said no doubt Miss Brown would understand that if the applause of the audience was not so warm and frequent as she could wish, it was due to the fact I that their feelings were chastened bv the very sad and heavy loss which they had sustained in the death of Mr Jones. He alluded to the good work done by tho friends of the Erglish Chapel, and trusted that the efforts that tiighfe wculd result in much pecuniary help for the fULds, He then welcomed Miss H Brown on her second visit to Denbigh, remarking thab she .nust be a true artiste to have attracted so large and evidently appreciative an audience on her second visit to the town. Those present either had heard her and desire! to enjoy a second treat, or had been attracted by the great reputation she had made for herself. After other appropriate remarks, his Worship introduced Miss Hallie Q Brown. Miss Hallie Q Brown's recitations were splendidly given, and she fully sustained the high position she had attained in the estima- tion of the Denbigh people by her former visit- Most of the recitations given by her were new, an old favourite being given when she was encored, which was equally enjoyed. The musical selections were excellently rendered, the whole enter, ainment being of a very enjoy- able character. Thanks to the Mayor was proposed bv Mr J Harrison Jones, and" seconded by the Rev J Evans, and carried with much,applause. His Worship briefly replied, and referred to the very able manner in wh ch the programme had been carried out by the performers, especially Miss Brown, and said that it "aye both, himself and the Mayoress much pleasure to be present.

DENBIGH COUNCIL BYE- ELECTION. THE LIBERAL CLUB VICTORIOUS. Yesterday's bve-election resulted as most people anticipated who saw how the contest was working. Mr John Davies had been out since November 9th, and had cai. vassed the ratepayers and obtained H large number of promises of support long btfore Mr John Thomas Hughes had decided at the solicitation of some friends to come out, and he came out reluctantly. The Liberal Club vorked as if the existence of the universe depended upon the result, and tried every move on the board to secure success, and their united and de- termined efforts were rewarded whilst on the other side there were very few workers and indeed very little work done. Every effort was made by the Liberals to de. feat Mr Hughes, and the political trumpet was blown for all it was worth, and the sectarian drum beaten as loudly as i4: could be, these and the personal matters which were imported proved victorious. 4 The Returning Officer (Mr E A Tumour, the Mayor) made his appearance about five minutes past nine, at the Council Chamber window, and declared the result as follows I.John Davies „ (,35 J. T. Hughes 415 Maioritv 99.0 The result was received with loud cheering1. The successful candidate briefly returned thanks, A number of people celebrated the event by igniting torches. The crowd thea stood around the Liberal Olub clamouring for Mr Davies, but he did not appear, and finally the crowd dispersed.

HUNTING ACClDENT.-We regret to hear that Captain Cole met with an accident out hunting on Wednesday, his horse falling at a fenoe and giving him a serious shaking. We are glad to learn the Captain is recovering under Dr James Hughes, and his hosts of f riends will be glad to see him in the saddle again as soon as possible. TRAP ACCIDENT IN HIGH STREET.—On Fri- day night an accident occurred to five persons who were just starting for Henllan. The horse took .fright, from a light. The people who were in the trap were all thrown out into the street, happily escaping uninjured, while the horse, at a terrific pace, went on along High-street, being captured at the ton of Henllan-etreet. The shafts of the trap were broken, but the horse was uninjured. The streets were full at the time, and the run-away created much excitement. SALE OF WORK.—The Sale of Work which will be held at the Church House, to-day (Friday), begins at 3 p.m., when a charge of sixpence will be made up to 6 p.m., and at that hour the charge of admittance will be reduced to threepence. We sincerely hope that all Churchpeople and friends will turn up well and purchase the assorted stock of useful and ornamental things which have been given by various kind ladies of the parish. This is all the more to be wished as the funds will be devoted to the parish work, principally to the National Schools. SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION.—On Friday even- ing isit a meeting was convened under the auspices of the Denbigh Free Church Council, which has just been formed in this town, the Rev J Hurst HOIIOWBII (Rochdale) delivering an address in connection with the School Board election which took place on the follow- ing Monday. The chair was taken by Mr E Mills. A vote of thanks proposed to the Speaker for his address, by Mr Harrison Jones, seconded by the Rev J Evans, was carried unanimously, as also was a vote of thanks proposed to the Chairman by the Rev J Hurst Hollowell and seconded by the Rev James Charles. DOG POISONING BY RAT Poisox.-A yeung lady in the neighbourhood of Bodfari has lost her pet dog from poisoning-so the Veterinary Surgeon says, and most probably phosphorus. We think it advisable to call attention to the danger of using this poison for killing rats in a careless way. Many people use it for that pur- pose, but it should be ased with very great care and caution. The dog row poisoned was a valu- able one, and, of course, the young lady was very fond of him. It is believed that he must have picked up something with the poison on it, when he was out with the horses at exersiso. This just shows how dangerous the indiscrimin- cate use of the poison is and '.ve would therefore, advise greater care and caution. FOUR SILVER CUPS FOR MESSRS CLOUGH'S ATJCTI[()N.- Four silver cups will be awarded on Tuesday next, in connection with Messrs Clough's Christmas sale, three of which are given by His Worship the Mayor (E A Tumour, Esq.), the other by Messrs Clough and Co.

Messrs Clough and Co give a silver cup for the best beast in the sale. The silver cups are now on "view at Mr Joyce's, jeweller, Va3e-street, who has been entrusted I with the order for tho same by the Mayor and Mr Clough. The cups are very handsome and valaa^ic.
