SLINGS AND AR-ROWS. "r \F" IBY A YEOMAN OF THE GUARD]. I have just seen a circular issued on be- half of the Ruthin Conservative Club, asking for support of a financial nature. I and others have been given to understand that the Conservative cause in Ruthin was in a most flourishing state, and therefore this circular has come upon me as a bit of a surprise. The club is in debt to the cut e of £120, anj it is unable to pay that debt. These are the words of the circular on the point. The club is now thoroughly self- supporting, providing the debit balance can ] be cleared off.' Well, most of us would be self-supporting if we could get others to j pay our debts. Surely this is a new defini- s bion of the word self-supporting.' £ < 0 2 I The circular also states that the mem- 13 bership has more than doubled during the aBt year.' I am informed, however, that ] ihere are not more than fifteen members I who are voters, and that most of the others are boys. There are over twenty young men who are known as extreme Radicals who are members of the club, to the extent of frequenting its billiard-tables. What a flourishing political club, to be sure w < < In view of the forthcoming May-day, the secretary of the Denbigh Demonstration has sent out post-cards, inviting the opin- ion of the general committee, on the ques- tion whether a demonstration should be held this year or not, and also whether such a demonstration, if held, should in- clude a Brass Band Competition. Person- ally, I have some doubts whether such a demonstration should be held this year. There are only three weeks between May- day and Whit-Monday-and Whit-Tuesday is only one day further off. I do not think it is possible to have two successful gala days, within three weeks one of the other. One is bound to affect the other Besides, there are too many competing towns having similar events on May-day. But I do not want to do awav with the es- sential features of May day. My suggestion, therefore is, that no celebration of any kind should take place in Denbigh on May-day, but that the principal features of that day should be observed on Whit-Tuesday. At present the morning of that day is devoted to a parade of Friendly Societies, but these are not what they used to be, and could, I believe, without the slightest less to the so- cieties, either be dispensed with, or worked in conjunction with a sort of May day parade. m 9 9 n Then the Castle Committee might take the Brass Band Competition under its own wing, being responsible for all the expense, and taking all the gate-money. The weather, of course, is uncertain, but it is a I' little more certain on the 23rd rather than on the 1st of May. If the Castle Com- mittee does not care for this, a Brass Band Competition between the two harvests might easily, and I believe, profitably be arranged.
