HOLYWELL. CHARITY DI SIR IBlU T10 N. This vestry was held on Easter Mondav, the Vicar (Rev R. O. Williams) presiding. Mr S. L. Revis (North and South Wales Bank) was appointed people's warden; and, Ir J. Car- man (Gerddi iBeuno) vicar's warden. The total balances in. hand of the various charities were shown to be ^51 2s 3d. The Mead charity (distributed tec poor people after morning service at church) showed a total of ^91 7s. 6d., of which ^47 10s. 8d. remained as a balance in hand. Two marriage portions of /1 each had been granted during the year from the "Ellis Parry" bequest, the income being paid by the Hon. Company of Parish Clerks and derived from a pu'blic-house in London. Two apprentices also received grants from the charity. The vicar also submitted the accounts of the charities of which be is- the trustee, .and which were principally distributed on St. Thomas's Day. The amounts included Emma Williams' charity of £ i each to 14 poor women; the John Hughes' charity of £1 'to 30 poor people. Other c'harities of lesser amount were submit- ted. Over £$0 was distributed' by the vicar and close upon £ 100 by the vicar and church- wardens. The Vicar mentioned a new charity, the in- come of which had not) yet been utilised, and which now amounted to £11. The charity was for affording a treat to the day schools, and the vicar said, the general .acceptation, of "treat" was tea .and currant cake; but his interpreta- tion was a treat did not imply a feed in one way only they could feed the mind as well as; the body; and he considered .a treat would be to provide a lime-light lantern for the school, ,a,nd by intleresting lectures give a. treat to the schol- ars that wo'uld be of benefit to them in .after life. The charities' accounts were passed as read. -a--
LLANGOLLEN. LAWN TENNIS v. PAROCHIAL WORK. At the annual meeting of the flaii,-o.Ileri. Easter Vestry, at the :Parish Church, on Mon- day, Archdeacon Wynne Jones, who presided, referred to. the .attack upon the curates' of neg- lect of visiting and devotion of five days, a week to lawn tennis, and other matters brought for- ward by Mr Charles Taylor. After making the charges Mr Taylor went away, and he (the Archdeacon) considered it to be his duty to say, although he had no desire to rake up any unpleasantness, that a man who deliberately made charges in public that were reported and spread throughout 'the length and breadth of the kingdom, and who did not sub- stantiate them-well, he would .leave the meet- I ing to apply the epithet. He had in his pos- session three letters that he wrote to Mr Taylor asking him to substantiate his charges. A short time before last year's vestry he had received from the gentleman, who afterwards appeared at the meeting, a letter containing a number of accusations against one of his (the Archdeacon's) colleagues, couched in terms that he would not qualify. He sent a formal receipt of the letter, and then took his colleague to the gentleman, and said to him, "Will you kindly repeat now what you said in your let- ter?" and he said, "No, I have nothing more to say!" His (the Archdeacon's) reply was to the effect that he would know the value to place on his accusations in future. The complaints made might be right or wrong; he knew no- thing about them. They were about one or two people not having been visited, and they were told that one part of the parish had; not been visited. That, he believed, from records in his possesson, to be absolutely a mis-state- men't. One of the persons referred to was visited by the speaker within twelve months after he came to the parish, and yet the state- ment was made that the party had not been visited for, seven years previously. The, Archdeacon then read the last letter he wrote to Mr Taylor, asking' him what courtesy and justice entitled, him to demand, and he re- plied that he was writing to the press on the subject. His letter on the subject, however, had not appeared, but Mr Taylor had sent him a copy of it. The charges had been neither substantiated nor withdrawn, and this was the reason he had troubled the vestry with a matter otherwise hardly worthy of consideration. The meeting expressed unabating confidence in the admiration of the clergy and their work, and the incident closed. -0-
PRESTATYN. The Rev. O. J. Davies, vicar, presided over the annual Easter vestry meeting, which was held 'on 'Monday in the National Schools. The Chairman said he had much pleasure in presenting his second annual report. In it he reviewed the main features. of the past year's work, and alluded to the extra sen-ices for English, visitors-, which, for 'Prestatyn was a novelty. On the whole, he was glad to say they were appreciated. The rev. gentleman referred to the sale of work which was organised in order to raise funds: for church, building, and which resulted in clearing 6125- He thanked the Church Council and outgoing churchwardens, Messrs Price: and-.Hughes, and all those who had taken active part in furthering parish work, making special mention of the English and Welsh choirs., and the' -Organist, -Nir Williams. From the balance-sheet, it appeared the year was commenced with a balance in hand of £ 26 19s. gd. The offertories during the year amounted to ^125 us 3d. lhe general ex- penditure was £ 110 12s iod', and various sums devoted to outside work came to ft35 9s nd. They had, therefore, a balance to the good of ^4 4s- x 3 'Mr W. II. Coward, J-P-, was appointed vicar's warden, and Mr Scott people's warden. The following sidesmen were: appointed: English: Messrs Honfal1, Morgan, Broad, Worfolk, Price, Hughes, Taylor, E. II. Parry, J. R. Tickle, E. Taylor, J. B. Linnell, Roberts (Woodlands:); Welsh: Jones (Freelands), Jones (Ashdale), Roberts (Penycae), J. O. Clarke, J. Hughes, and G. Gratton.

Penrh n Strike to be Continued. Mass Meeting on Monday. ABOUT 1.500 men assembled at the Bethesda Market Ilall on Monday to discuss the situation, there being present a few hundreds of the work- men who had returned from South Wales and elsewhere, in response to the invitation of the com- mittee. Mr Henry Jones, the chairman of the Strike Committee, presided, and in the course of his open- ing speech dwelt in detail upon the result of the negotiations carried on through the medinm of Sir Edward Claike. He scouted the idea that Lord Penrhyn had no cognisance of the negotiations, for communications had passed between Sir Edward Clarke and his Lordship, with the result that several of the men's claims had been modified. Their business to-day was to decide whether they would return to work with the traitors or stand like men. (Cries of Stand ") At this point Mr Jones asked for a vote, and the following resolution was proposed and seconded from the body of the hall That we continue the struggle until we secure fair terms." The resolution was carried unanimously and with loud cheers. Mr Henry Jones then intimated that he had re- ceived several telegrams from workmen in South Wales, which he had kept back until the resolution had been passed for fear it would influence the minds of the men. 4
Langollen Deserted. Ix the Vale of Llangollen blinding snow, mingled with large hailstones, quickly covered the Denbigh- shire and Merionethshire Mountains with a white blanket. The stjrm which had raged through the night, recurred in the morning with increased fury, and in the Llangollen rural districts nearly three inches of snow were registered before nine o'clock. Such exceptionally severe weather is declared to be unparalleled for almost thirty years at Easter in North Wales. Llangollen, which is a favourite with holiday-seekers from Lancashire and the Midlands, was seriously affected, being practically deserted compared with former years.

Sanitation at Llanddulas. Serious Cases of Overcrowding. AT the monthly meeting of the St. Asaph (Denbigh) District Council on Thursday reference was made to the sanitary condition of Llanddulas and to serious overcrowding in several of the houses in the village. The matter has been brought before the Council on more than one occasion by the medical officer of health (Dr Lloyd Roberts), and a letter was now 1 read from the Local Government Board asking what steps were being taken to remedy the state of affairs and for the provision of a hospital for the isolation of small-pox cases. A letter was also read from the Llanddulas Parish Council stating that up to the present no at- tention had been given to their complaints as to the overcrowding and insanitary state of the cottages, and suggesting that a deputation from the District Council should meet the parish council at Llan- ddulas at an early date to investigate the com- plaints. In consequence of these letters Mr W. C Bell, sanitary inspector, presented a detailed report. Many houses, he said, containing one and two bedrooms were tenanted by husbands and wives, with several children, and in some cases male lodgers were taken in. In one bedroom a family of eleven slept, the room only measuring loft. by loft. After full discussion the Council considered that this state of things could not be allowed, and appointed a deputation to meet the Llanddulas Parish Council on the subject. +
Geirionydd Rural District Council. The Gower. Road Question. Corwen and Bettws-y-Coed Light Railway. THE usual meeting of this Council was held on Tuesday last, Mr E. Jones-Williams in the chair the following members were a!so present, Messrs Thomas Hughes (Maenan), Matthew Roberts (Capel Curig), John Morris (Penmaehn<>), Thomas Price (Trefriw), \Villiam Roberts, Eilis Pierce, and Richard Evans (Dolwyddden), the Cleik, pro tem, Mr II. H. Owen, and Mr R. H Williams, surveyor and inspector. Election of a Clerk. Mr R. R. O.ven was unanimously elected C erk, on proposition of chairman in successsion to 1\lr Hugh Fierie. Mr Owen briefly thanked the Bjard for their election. The Gower Road. The Chairman referred to copies of resolutions received respecting the above road, and which were passed at a recent meeting of the Parish Council of Trefriw. The resolutions were as follows: (i) Tiii, this Council is of the opinion that the convenience and the best iniecests of the inhabitants of the adj icent districts of Carnarvon- shire and Denbighshire respectively would be most materially served, and the development of the respective localities promoted by the (pI ivate toll or Gower) Road, which lorms a direct communication between Trefriw and Llanrwst, being constituted a puMic highway." (2) That the preceding resoluuon of this C mncil sha I be submitted to the County Council of Carnarvonshire for consideration as to the desirability of inviting z,1 a confennce with the County Council of Denbigh- shire with a view to a mutual agreement for joint negotiations with the owners ot the i-o icl for the purchase of same." The chairman thought it would be a wise step to have the road made a public road. Mr Thomas Price was of opinion that the County Councils were bound to take the matter up They had not done any great services so far to the parish of Trefriw, and this would be an opportunity of doing something. Mr John Morris thought that they would be losing an income from the rates which Mr Gower was now paying Mr Price replied that they should not consider the question merely of a rate, because the thing would be good for the whole district, and what would be lost b\ the income from the rates would greatly be exceeded in the value of property in Trefriw. The Council decided to petition the County Council on the spirit of the resolutions given above. The Corwen and Bettws=y=Coed Light Railway. The Chairman explained the objects of the above projected railway, and he gave notice that at the next meeting of the Council he would move that the Council favour the scheme, which would run through part of the Council's district. It was also decided, on the proposition of Mr Price, to ask the secretary of the scheme to furnish the Council with a plan of the scheme by the next meeting. Llyn Pedair Llath, Dolwyddelen. A letter was read from the clerk to the Dolwy- ddelen Parish Council, calling attention to the dangerous state of the fencing around this place, and it was decided that the surveyor inspect it and report at the next meeting, with an estimate of cost of work. Isolation Hospital. X The Council decided to adhere to the resolution which had be--ii previously passed on the subject, "That the Council, in the event of an outbreak of smallpox, take a house, in a suitable place, within the Union, for the isolation of the cases. Mr. Pierce's Testimonial. The following members were elected as delegates to attend a meeting respecting the Pierce Testi- I monial project initiated by the Urban District Council -.—Messrs Thomas Hughes tMaenan), Ellis Pierce (Dolwyddelen). and Richard Evans (Dolwy- ddelen). The Vacancy at Penmachno. Mr John Morris moved, according to notice, that the clerk take the necessary sieps for filling the vacancy at Penmachno, caused by the death of Mr John Davies, Broneidal. Mr M. Roberts seconded, and the matter was passed unanimously. The Education Act. A letter was read from Mr E. R. Davies stating that the Act would come into operation in the County of Carnarvon on the 30th September next. Cwm Waterworks. The Chairman reported that Mr Wood was of opinion that the system suggested at the last meet- ing of supplying Cwm with water from Blaen-y- (i win was feasible, and could be carried out at a much less experne than the first scheme. Dolwyddelen Waterworks. Mr Wood, \yho was engaged in preparing plans, recommended that the present pipes be left for Hushing purposes, and that the supply for drinking purposes be obtained from the river. He (Mr Wood) was having the water analysed The Council thought it necessary for the inspector to obtain assistance in taking levels from the stream from which it was proposed to take the new supply to the village. ♦
Carriage Accident Near Penmaenmawr. Abergele Lady Injured. Ost Good Friday afternoon a carriage accident oc- curred near Dwygyfylchi, Penmaenmawr, which resulted in serious injuries to two ladies. Mrs M'Michan, wife ot Mr George M'Michan, fruiterer and carriage proprietor, of Llanfairfechah, accom- panied by her sister from Abergele, went for a drive with her son in a new victoria which had not previously been used. They proceeded through Penmaenmawr to Dwygyfylchi, and while descend- ing a steep hill near that place the brake failed to act, and the vehicle went down the incline at a terriflc speed and overturned. Mrs M'Michan and her sister were dangerously hurt. They were at- tended to by a Penmaenmawr surgeon and taken home. The victoria was much damaged, and the horse also sustained severe injury. I
