M 0 L I) -O JUBILEE YEAR. There is a rumour gaining ground that Mr* P.B. Davies Cooke, Gwysanney, will be asked to become the chairman of the Urban District Council. FAIR DAY. The supply of stock at this monthly fair on Wednesday was limited. There were, how- ever, some good milkers seen, and they sold remarkably well. THE NEW INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL. It was said that the 1st of May, was the like- ly day for cutting the sod for the foundations for this school, but from all accounts it will be ware likely on the day of the Diamond Jubilee. DEATH OF A FARMER. On Thursday the death took place of Mr. James Griffiths, of Plas Major Farm, belonging to the Leeswood Estate. Mr. Griffiths who was about 45 years of age, and son wf Mr. James Griffiths, the Rake Farm, had been in ill-health for some time. He leaves a widow and seven children, the youngest of whom is only a week old, to mourn their less. A MILITIA DESERTER. Before B. E. Philips and H. Lloyd Jones, at the County Hall on Saturday, James Brad- ley, of Cox, was charged in custody with being a deserter from the Hull Militia Regiment, Sergeant Langdon proved the arrest of the prisoner at his mother's house, Buckley, and when charged he admitted the offence. The prisoner was ordered to be kept in cus- tody until as escort arrived. NO MAY-DAY SHOW. We think that the gentlemen who are so prominently associated with the May-Day show itave shewtia judicious turn of mind by with- holding the show for this year. Townsmen have had many calls upon them and to expect them to contribute liberally both for May-Day and Jubilee celebrations is too much of a good thing, At the meeting on Friday night Coun- cillor Lloyd Jones pointed out that many towns were going to celebrate Her Majesty's long reign in most loyal fashion and he for one did act want to see Mold behind hand. Councillor W. Wright also said that many of the exhibi- tors at the show complained of the insufficiency of the prizes, there would be a difficulty of get- ting subscriptions this year but he considered next year they would be able to augment their fands and increase the prizes. Mr, Cartwright (station master) supported the view taken and urged that as an epoch in history now just approaching, something should be done. URBAN COUNCIL ELECTION. This election took place on Monday. It was expected at one time that much enthusiasm would be imported into the proceedings; but everything passed off quietly, and many of the electors did not avail themselves of their vot- ing privileges. It was difficult to judge with accuracy who would be the successful candi- dates, as many of them are popular men, but the townsmen were unanimous that Mi". Thomas Lloyd Powell, Mitcham House, would easily head the poll, which he did by a majority of 131. Three of the old candidates were returned —Messrs. Eaton, Simon and Marston, and Mr. Frank Olliver was ousted by Mr. Thomas Lewis of the firm of Humphrey Lewis and Sons, gro- cers. The district was divided into three divi- sions, viz.: Town Hall, Broncoed, 97 voters, presiding officer, Mr. Herbert Jones: clerk, Mr. J. C. Griffiths, National School. Mold East, 451 voters, presiding officer, Mr. Edwin Ro berts; clerk, Mr. Joseph Jones. Mold West, 440 voters, presiding officer, Mr. G. H. Bradley; clerk, Mr. W. Hookes. At the conclusion of the poll the boxes were conveyed to the Town Hiioli, and the returning officer-Mr. Bradley— speedily got to work, the result being known a few minutes after ten. The total number on the Register were 988, and the number polled were 663, and the spoilt votes 5. In the mean- tine, a large crowd had gathered outside the Hall, and when the official announcement was made general satisfaction was expressed at the electors' choice. The composition of the Coun- cil is now—11 Liberals, and 4 Conservaties. T. Lloyd Powell 393 Llewelyn Eaton 262 Thomas Lewis 250 «, George Humphrey Simon 217 ty, Tohn Beale Marston 216 Elected.

It is not often that lethargy characterises the action of the people of Mold, when duty de- mands it,' and so it was with the appeal that was made not many days ago, and which we briefly referred to in our last issue, for help to those who are participating in the disastrous struggle at the famous Penrhyn Slate Quarries. The matter was spiritedly taken up, and the event well advertised. The sympathy that was expressed at the outset guaranteed the financial success of the concert; but never did the broadest expectations reach the tremendous success which was achieved on Tuesday night last. The Town Hall was packed to an uncom- fortable extent, there being not a particle of available space long before the proceedings commenced. The chair was occupied by Councillor T. Parry, J.P., who stated that the Penrhyn Choir had organised a tour through North Wales, and decided to hold a concert at Meld that avening. The matter had been referred to him, and he convened a meeting last week at the Town Hall representing the different sections ,im the town, and the feeling was unanimously in favour of helping the choir. He was exceed- ingly pleased to notice the very large atten. dance present. He regretted the concert had fallen in the seme week, and within two nights of the Annual Eisteddvod of the friends at Pendre but in justice to himself aud the com. mittee, he would remark that neither he, nor any of them, had any hand in fixing the date of the concert. Their friends from Penrhyn Quarry had arranged for a week's tour in North Wales without consulting the towns- people, consequently, it might be expected that it might clash with other meetings previously arranged. At the meeting referred to, it was unanimously decided to give the choir a hearty welcome. If they did not accept them during that week, it meant that the town of Mold was not to have an opportunity of showing their sympathy with their fellow-countrymen in the present crisis-the greatest in the history of labour—and it would have been unworthy of the traditions of the town to let that opportunity fi helping their friends to pass by. He hoped, &ad believed, that an expression of, and prac. tical sympathy with their friends from Beth. eøda, would not injure any good cause in the hwn. He bore in mind that it was a concert, therefore, it was not his intention to enter into the merits and the demerits of the Bethesda struggle. Bat be hoped that the people of Mold would not be backward in expressing their appreciation of the manner and spirit in which the quarrymen had carried on the strug- gle—their conduct had been beyond praise, and It was doubtful whether any other body of workmen, numbering, as the quarrymen did, about 3,000, could be found in the whole world who would conduct themselves with so much credit, and, above all, without reproach.
