LLANDUDNO. DISTRICT COUNCIL. DIAMOND JUBILEE SUGGESTIONS. On Friday evening, an adjourned meeting of the council was held, Mr. T. W. Griffith (chairman) presiding. In view of the Light Railway Commis sioners' inquiry at Colwyn Bay on Tues- day, and the ultimate object of the promo- ters to extend the system through Llandud- no, Mr. Marks gave notice to move at the next monthly meeting that Mr. A. H, Preece, who has already been engaged to carry out a scheme of electric lighting, combined with a refuse destructor, be directed to include in the scheme an electric tramway system, so that the profits, if any, be devoted to the rates. Several suggestions were received as to celebrating the Queen's Reign. Mr" Archer Thomson, headmaster of the Intermediate Schools, wrote urging the erection of suitable school buildings. Mr. F. Vincent Walker, on behalf of the Cricket Club, of which Lord Mostyn is pre- sident, wrote that the club intended having a grand bazaar next August, and after clear- ing off the debt, the committee were willing to devote the balance to a public recreation ground. Another suggestion was that a fund for the support of a nurse to attend the sick poor would be desirable. After discussion, it was agreed that the chairman should call a public meeting on March 2nd, to take the opinion of the towns- people as to what form the commemoration should assume, Mr. Silcock, of Bath, the architect for the new municipal buildings, was present to confer as to the possibility of reducing the estimated cost of the work from X13,000 odd to < £ '10,000, the original sum proposed to be spent. Mr. Silcock was disinclined to amend his plans, on the ground that such a course would greatly detract from the utility and appearance of the building. Eventually the matter was deferred to the next meeting.
