Wynn, gave notice that at a future meeting he will move that the names of those of the General Committee who do not attend one meeting in twelve months be struck off, and that six members retire in rotation every year. The following members were elected a special committee with full powers to act on the show day :—the president, the vice pre- sident, the Hon. C. H. Wynn, Hon. R. Hen- ley Eden, Mr. W. E. Williams, and Dr. Walker. It was decided that if an objection be made against any a ward and the same be upheld by the committee, any member who refuses to return his card, will be proceeded against under rule 20. It was decided that the sale of tickets to the leaping field be commenced with half an hour before the trials commence. The Hon. C. H. Wynn raised the question whether the members could be asked to forego their free tickets, and pay one shill ing. The majority believed that course would be detrimental to the interest of the society, and so the matter was allowed to drop. The secretary was instructed to get all the printing done by the Corwen Printing Co., provided they will do it at the same price as last year. An application for a contribution from the funds of the society towards the section of the proposed bridge over the Dee by Cor- wen was discussed at some length, and ultimately it was decided to refuse it on the ground that if any of the funds were so applied, one of the rules would have to be rescinded. A vote of thanks was passed to the chair- man, and the meeting terminated.
