CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOUR CON- VENTION AT COLWYN BAY. ELECTION OF OFFICERS. INTERESTING ADDRESS BY MR PATON WILLIAMS. The fifteenth annual Convention of the Col- wyn Bay-Llandudno and District Union of the Qhristian Endeavour Society was held at the English Congregational Church, Coiwyn Bay, on Mor*iay. The proceedings opened at 3.30 with a con- ference, over which Rev. John Edwards pre- luded. At tihe outset, the Chairman said the Colwyn Bay friends were very pleased to see so many | colleagues present from Llandudno and district, and to these they extended a cordial welcome. fie had never seen a better gathering at an I afternoon meeting, and this fact spoke of the progress made by the Christian Endeavour movement in the district (hear, hear). They welcomed old and new societies. In past years it had been necessary for the president or chairman to explain what the C.E. was, but its work was now known the world over. Con- tinuing, the speaker said tlhe world was ever fready to criticise Christians, because there were tome hypocrites. If there were nine good out of ten, and the latter was a hypocrite, the world J would point to the latter. It was therefore very Essential that each member justified his connec- tion with the good cause. The C.E. move- jment, oonoluded the chairman, was directed to- wards aggressive work, and for building up the Christian oharacter. The meeting then sang "Let the tide come in," Mr David Greenfield leading the singing. I Miss Davies, Llandudno Junction, then read a paper on the "Privileges of Christian En- 'deavourers." She said that two of the privileges were the surenosa of Christian Salvation, and being able to work for the Lord Jesus Christ. JjThey were often singing "What a friend we have in Jesus." Not only were they expected to have a friend in Jesus, but also to introduce him to others. It behoved them, if they were fclessed, to let others know of this blessedness. he out-and-out Endeavourer was always on j the look out for opportunities to extend the Kingdom. The speaker continued at some length, and urged all present to do their utmost for the cAuse. Miss F. Greenfield, Colwyn Bay, sang a solo, "The Better Land." Miss Butler, also of Llandudno Junction, read & paper on "Bible Study," a work, she de- scribed, as enjoyable and profitable to indulge in. One of the most cheerful principles of the C.E. was to read a.nd ptiudy, and "he com- mended the study aa a source of information and Inspiration.. Several others took part in the) proceedings, which were eventually brought to a close with the singing of the Doxology. A public tea was provided in tihe Lecture Hall, and a large number were thus entertained.
ELECTION OF OFFICERS. After tea. a business meeting was held when Jbhe following officers were ohosen for the ming year:—President, Rev. Wm. Phillips, Llandudno; vice-president, Mr Edward Jones, Conway; treasurer, Mr Herbert Edwards Coi- wyn Bay; secretary, Mr D. E. Greenfield, Col- Wyn Bay. It was deoided to hold the next half-yearly bonvcntion at Llandudno Junction.
PUBLIC MEETING. In the evening a public meeting was held at the Congregational Church. Mr R. W. Da- vies, J.P., Darlington, president of the Christian (Endeavour Union of Great Britain and Ireland was expected to address the meeting, but at ftbout 6.30 the following telegram was received from him from Manchester:—"Train from iNorth so late here that connection missed. Cannot reach Coiwyn Bay before ten, therefore useless proceeding. Exceedingly regret this, but helpless. Will gladly give another." The Rev. Wm. Phillips, Llandudno, occupied the chair, and was aocompanied on the plat- form by the Rev. Thomas Lloyd. The hymn "Who is on the Lord's side?" was Sung, after which the chairman read a portion of the Scripture. Mr Powell, Llandudno Junc- tion then prayed, and Miss L. Taylor, Colwyn Bay, followed with the eolo, "I found a friend." The Chairman, in a few remarks, said he regretted the absence of Mr Da vies. That Kntleman had worked heartily and constantly Jor the good of the young. He thought it was good that they had been disappointed as there f\vas a tendency in the Churones in those daye to look too mudh to man. Evidence of this was forthcoming when "the Lona1 raised a collier above ministers and churches, and sent him to proaoh to them." Ho now had great pleasure to caJling upon Mr F- Paton Williams, of Manchester, who had kindly offered hie ser- vices, to come forward and address the meet- ing.
"ALL CHUMS." Mr Williams, who is a Churoh of England lay Worker, carrying out his duties amongst the poor of Openeihaw, Manchester, delivered a most Jtirring addresp upon "Trust-' In his opening remarks ihe said that he had oome dowij for a reat, but on hearing of the difficulty which had arisen at that meeting, he had been delighted to step into tlhe breadh, and addlrees his Weldh Briends. He had a great respect for the Welsh land recently "almost broke his neok" to hear Mr Lloyd George (laughter)- They had some- thing about them which English folks had not got. They were so full of fire and enthusiasm, and this oarried them where they (the English) could not get. They had something to be proud1 of, in the possession olf their true Welsh blood. Continuing, Mr Williams said there used to be a Greek oeremony in the Holy Land :where, from what is supposed to be the burial place of the Lord holy fire was art a certain time expected to flare out. Emissaries wene lent from various parts of the country, and ltIhey carried torches, which they lit with the body fLre, to the districts from which they hail- ed. Those present that evening should play the of torches, so tJhat they could set fire to the Church or chapel to which they belonged and thus bring about another Welsh revival Amongst the young people- For some years he had been working amongst those who could be rightly termed the "bottom dogs," and his one message was that everybody should "trust" in the Loird. The speaker continued at some length with an address which had a great im- pression upon the assembly- In conclusion he paid lie was a member of the Ohuroh of Eng- land, but he thought thev were all ohums, and all members of one family—the family of heaven and earth. They had different ideals and differ- ent notions, and just for the present they lived in different rooms. The day would come when they woulxj be gathered around Hie knee—one family with owe Father. On the motion of the Rev. Thos. Lloyd, se- conded by Mr David Greenfield, the meeting expressed its gratitude to Mr Williams for his fea.diness in coming forward and giving such 1Ul inspiring address. The meeting concluded with the Doxology.
A COLWYN BAY BUILItER'S FAILURE. A SOLICITOR'S LIEU. At the Bangor Bankruptcy Court, to-day week, the examination was resumed' of W. H. (Davies, builder, Ocliwyn Bay- The case was opened at the last court, and adjourned for ine production of a cash statement. Mr Tobiats. Assistant Officiwl Receiver, now said that the statement did not give the in'-ormation he required. Mr T. H. Morgan, for the debtor, said he understood' that what was required was a state- ment of the cash received and paid by the debtor- The Assistant Official Reoeiver said he had asked for the letters of administration of the debtor's father's estate, and he received a re- ply that they could be seen at the solicitor's office on payment of costs. He thought it was a "singular request to make." Mr T. H. Morgan said that the document was in his hand, amd he had a lieu upon it in respect of costs. Mr Tobias: In this case you submit the mini- mum of information and give the maximum of trouble. Mr Morgan: I am sorry to hear that, be- cause I have done my best to assist you. I have the letters f administration here, and you are welcome to see them. The Registrar said he not see that Mr Morgan could be required to give up posset Bion of the document, but oertainly the Official Receiver should1 be allowed tc inspect :iit. Mr Morgan then handed the document to Mr Tobias. It was explained that the debtor knew nothing about his father's affairs until after his father's death, and was not, therefore, in a position to submit complete accounts- The examination was then closed-

PENSARN BEACH. PETITION TO "THE POWERS THAT BE." Dear sirs, I trust my just demands Will not be made in vain, If you will condescend tol hear Your humble beach complain. In summers past the people flocked | in crowds to see my beauty, Then rents were paid and money made When "Powers" did their duty. This year the houses and the shops, (Through visitors being few) To purchase food, pay rents and rates. They don't know what to do. And I am blamed, and rightly so, To see how I'm neglected- I No comforts, no attraotions- Past suggestions disrespected. The waves that lap my pebbled shore Have nothing to insp lro them, They just go rolling in and out, Few people to admire them. The Pierrots found no sheltering place, They oouldn't make it pay- For every joke they tried to point The enginÐsl puffed away. So off they went, they saw no joke In wasting time and money, (When winds blow keen and rain descends It's hard work to be funny). My stumps want painting on the prom., They make me feel quite ill, T .) fell down a month ago. And iherj they're lying still. My shelter painted in and out Would brighten up the shore, And a notlioe on its walls Re spitting on the floor. My jetty could be lengthened, sirs, Across the stones to land, Now boots are cut and ruined quite In crossing to the sand. There used to be some pretty boats Where children loved to swing, In happy childhood's merriment, Liko swallows on the wing. The boats are down and ugly posts Like gibbets there remain; I want the boats, and children' s shouts, And laughter back again. My lamps and seats have been removed, As near the Autumn drew, Do you take me for a hedgehog? Must I sleep the winter through? The next time you deliberate Take pity, pray, on me, And lighten up my darkness, I beseech ye! Powers that be. A BELATED VISITOR.

WELSH COUNTY SCHOOLS. WELSH ACCENT A COMMERCIAL DIS- ADVANTAGE. Mr F. p. Dodd (Blaenau Festiniog) presided at the half-yearly meeting of the AN-elsh County Schoo.Ls Association at Shrewsbury on Satur- day. Mr J. Rhys Evans Portmadoc, was elected to represent North Wales on tihe Central Welsh Board. M'iias Collin, B.A. (Card'iff), the retiring pre- sident, in bar address, said the increasing num- ber of girl pupils in their schools and the ques- tions affecting their health made the appoint- ment of a permanent woman inspector very important, and she Shaped rsuoh an appointment would not be long delayed (applause).
PROPOSED LADY INSPECTOR. Mists Jones (Wrexham), at a later stage, moved that tihe Executive Committee be em- powered to make representations to the Central Welsh Board as to the need of a permanent woman inspector being appointed. Miss Holme, Carmarthen, seconded the motion, which was supported by Mr Trevor Owen, Swansea, and Mr Edgar Jones, Barry, and car- ried-
THE WELSH ACCENT. Mr Jenkyin Thomas, o London, formerly secretary of tlhe Aosooiatian. gave an interest- ing address on the neglected side in the teach- ing of Eniglish in Wekth county schools. Their fault was that they spoke English in a way that madte people shudder. Undoubtedly tho pronunciation of English by Welshmen wasverv faulity. There was a distinct prejudioe against the Welah aooent outside Wales, much niore so than against the Irish and Scotch accent (shrume). It was a shame, ior he knew that pinpils wQrkept baok in the race of life by their Welsh accent- He knosw a ease of a Welshman wlho would have been a bishop to- day but for his intolerable accent. He advo- oated the uise of phonetics in this connection. In the discussion that followed Miss Jones (Wrexham) regretted that phonetics had not a place (in tlhe Welsh county schools. Mr E. D. Jones (Bamnouth) said that neconunendlations On that important subject needed to go to the elementary schools and the training oolleges. On the motion of Mr Trevor Owen a number of motions were carried calling for the same elasticity in the Board of Education regulations for secondary sohcols in Wales as had been given to English secondary sdhools. Shrewsbury was fixed as the place oc the an- nual mooting-
RELIGION IN COUNTY SCHOOLS HOLYWELL VICAR S COMPLAINT- Preaching on Sunday night at Holywell Par- ish Church, the occasion being "Sundav School Sunday," the Vicar :.the Rev. J. W. Thomas) said that as far as elementary education was concerned in their own parish the time was not far distant when no Churchman could assert with confidence that his child was receiving education in the faith of the Church of which he professed to be a member. In higher e-du. cation, if they examined the teaching at the Holywell County School, they would find that the subject of religious instruction was on the list of optional and not obligatory subjects- What percentage of pupils were receiving that religious instruction ? Was there one among the 150 pupils who was taught something of the faith aa they confessed and believed it? Not one- Political eocinomy and the study of French and kindred subjects crowded out pni ri- tual truth, and religion was banned in the schools of the parish. Religion, es Churchmen believed it, was thrust out from fear or favour by the County Council- Their hope for the future lay in the Sunday school and in the examples of home.
EXCITING SCENE AT PRESTATVN STRUGGLE WITH A MADMAN. At the Rhyl Police Court, on Saturday, be- fore Mr1 J. H. Ellis and Mr T. D. Jones, P.C. Cheney, of Prestatyn, told the Bench of an exciting experience which the platelayers on the Chester and Holyhead main line had had with a madman. The man had been wander- ing along the line, and narrowly escaped being run over. Five of the railway staff eventually seized him, and took him to tho Prestatyn sta- tion, and then sent for the police. On Cheney arriving he tried to converse with the man, but could make very little of him, and took him to the police station. There he fed him well, wrapped him in blankets, and changed his con- dition from one of dejection to that of com- I fort. Gradually the man recovered himself, and was able to say that he belonged to Sherry, Ire- land, but had attempted to walk from Holy- head to Liverpool, spending many days without food and sleeping out. Dr. Eyton Lloyd said he had examined the man, and was of opinion that his condition was due to want of food, and, no doubt, a little alcoholic excess. In reply to the Bench, the man consented to gd to the workhouse, and an order to that effect was passed.

LLANRWST AND DISTRICT EDUCATION COMMITTEE. EXCELLENT SCHOOL REPORTS. A moving of the Llanrwst Education Com- mittee was held on Monday evening, when there were present:—Mr W. J. Williams (in the chair), the Rev. W. Cynwyd Williams, Messrs W. Hughes E. Mills, W. G. Owen, O. Isgoed .lones, J. R. Williams, and Dr. J. W. Owen, with tho Clerk (Mr J. E. Humphreys) and the At- tendance Offieer (Mr Thomas Williams).
A DOCTOR'S CLAIM. A letter was -ead from tho County Authority agreeing to pay the claim of Dr Morgan amount- ing to tnree guineas for medically attending the children at the Glan Cc-nway school. They. how- ever, requested 'he managers not to incur similar liabilities in future.
LEGAL ASSISTANCE. Messrs Evans and Roberts, the secretaries of the County Authority, wrote stating that the Financ Committee agreed to pay the three gu ni- cas claimed for legal assistance in ten cases which vere brought before the Llanrwst magistrates. They ware to inform the district managers that the laaction of the Attendance Committee must be obtained before any liability for legal as- sis'anc-f is incurred. The Chairman thought the suggestion of the County A uthoriweuld net keep up the at- tendance at the school. They appeared to object to the managers getting any legal assistance. On the motion of Mr E. Mills, it was decided to reply asking the authority to remove that re- striction, or the attendance at the schools would be greatly in led.
APPOINTMENT. rllwre were ix applications for the post of cleaner of the Boys' Council School, Llanrwst, and after 8 ballot Mrs Jane Owen, 36, Station- icad, was appointed at a remuneration of B10 per annum
CAPEL GARMON AND NEBO SCHOOLS. H.M. Inspector (Mr L. J. Roberts) reported as follows on the Capel Garmon School, of which Mr W. G. Powell is headmaster :There have been very many changes in the staff during the last two years, but owing to the skill with which the headmaster conducts the school, the progress made by the scholars is very satisfactory. The tone of the school is admirable, the children are clean, docile and well mannered, and it is a plea- sure to see how they settle down to work inde- pendently, and how keenly they are interested in their lessons. The school well observes its pur- pose of preparing the children for -their life's work. The teaching is well calculated to inspire scholars with the love of country life. The head teacher is himself in full sympathy with those engaged in agricultural pursuits, and suit- able and effective lessons arc given in natural his- tory and other subjects b?armg directly on the children's daily life, and calculated to cultivate their habits of observation and their love of nature. Drawing is exceedingly well taught, ,a,nscape morahne sketches are drawn with great skill by the older scholars. Singing is excel- lent, the voices (particularly those of the girls) being wonderfully fresh and sweet. The infants are carefully taught., the medium of instruction being Welsh, the 'home language of all the child- ren. A school garden would be a useful adjunct to the school." Of the Nebo /Council School, the Inspector reported as follows: "This little school, in which there are only 19 seliolar3 on the books, i3 diligently and well taught. The headmaster (an experienced certificated teacher) is assisted by Mrs Morris, supplementary teacher, and the children receive a great doal of individual at- tention. The attendance is wonderfully regular, and it is the more creditable in view of the hilly character of the country, and of the re- moteness of the homes of tho children from the school, which is itself over 1000 feet above sea level. Owing to the isolation in which the children Jive, they arc shy to strangers, and at Gist gave the impression of being backward. But a their shyness wear-, off they show considerable ini elligence, especially when questioned in their surroundsngs by means of school walks. They are taught to find and name (in English and Welsh) the common wild flowers, the grasses, and clovers of their locality. The advantages of in- dividual attention arising from a good staff were markedly seen when at (ne of my visits eaph of the seven children in the first class sang the f rd. verse of a part-song as a solo. Some of the voices are very sweet and tuneful. The weakest subject is reading which is lacking in fluency and in a proper modulation of the voice. The premises are generally in excellent order." On the motion of the Rev. W. Cynwyd Wil- liams, seconded by Dr. Owen. it was decided to forward the managers' congratulations to the head teachers of Capel Garmon and Nebo for tho excellent reports.

LLANRWST URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. THE SPEED OF MOTOR CARS. OBJECTION BY MOTOR CLUBS. Tho monthly meeting of the above Council was held on Friday evening, when there were pi-esen::—Mr W. Hughes (inthe chair), Dr. J. W. Owen (vice-chairman), e. w. Cynwyd Williams, Messrs H. J. W. >> ailing, J. Rhyd- wen Jones, Griffith Jones, D. J. Williams, W m. Davios, W. Griffith Jones, and W. J. Williams, with tho Clerk (Mr H. R. Owen), the Surveyor (Mr George Wynne), and the Collector (Mr E. M. Jones).
EXTRAORDINARY TRAFFIC. The Surveyor reported that the extraordinary 'traffic was rapidly destroying the surtace of Station-road, and he recommended that the road be now repaired, and that a careful account of the expenses be kept with the view of securing the coat from whoever it was due. To keep up the main roads to the required standard, he must have at least 500 tons of macadam. It was not necessary to pick the surface as usual, and therefore he could do with les3 than half the number of men generally employed. The steam roller could do the work in 14 days. Tne Council decided to invito tenders for the supply of macadam, and the matter was referred to the Highway (Jonimit.t-ee for full considera- tion.
WATER MAIN EXTENSIONS. The Surveyor reported that only one of the three parties interested in the extension of the water mains to Llangermew-road had agreed to contribute towards the cost. Mr E. P. Hughes contended that his land was let for agricultural purposes only. Mr J. Berry said he had no in- tention of building there now. Mr R. J. Wil- liams was willing to contribute ten guineas. The supply of water to the main would not be con- tinuous, so that he would have to provide an independent supply from a well to be sunk, and that would cost him at least J615. The Chairman said that the estimated cost of this work was £58, and one-third which was aaked amounted to JS19 6s 8d. Mr Cynwyd Williams: Can we pass a resolu- tion to the effect that those building there after- wards and connecting must contribute towards the cost? The Clerk said this could not be done. Mr Cynwyd Williams It is very hard that Mr Williams should pay the whole amount. The matter was ulaimately referred to the Sanitary Committea.
COLLECTOR'S REPORT. The Collector reported that during October he had collected JB189 4s 4d in respect of the general district rate, JE40 18s for water rents, and £3 2s for rents and tolls, a total of £207 2s 6d.
THE SWINE MARKET. The Clerk reported that Major Price, of the Board of Agriculture, 'attended at Llanrwst and visited the spo*: near Plasyndre, where the sales of pigs were alternately held. He appeared to be highly satisfied with the place. He also stated that the Board were waiting for the de- cision of the Council as to the place, but he (Mr Owen) told him it was as absolutely impossible for the Council to do anything at present on ac- count of the enormous traffic on Station-road at the present time. He saw that himself, and he stated that the Council might leave matters until they had heard further from the Board of Agri- culture.
THE LETTING OF THE TOWN HALL. The Clerk said that at the last meeting he was instructed to write to Mr Edward Morris with regard to his application fo.r the Town Hall stalls. He had done so, but had received no reply. The Finanoe Committee recommended that failing an agreement with Mr Morris the price for the stalls be reduced as follows 2s 6d stalls to 2s a week, 2s 3d stalls to Is 6d, Is 9d stalls to Is. The present rents, if all were let, amounted to £45 10s per annum, and the proposed reduced rents amounted to £28 per annum. He suggested that the matter be again referred to the finance Committee, and this was done.
THE REPAIR OF PAVEMENTS. With regard to a question of repairing pave- ments, Mr D. J. Williams moved that in future any alteration to benefit any person should be made with the sanction of the Council at the expensq of the user. He did not think it was fair" that the ratepayers should pay for work which benefitted individual persons. Mr Rhvdwen Jones seconded. Mr Watling said that the setts usually laid on pavements were not for the benefit of an in- dividual. The Chairman said the point was that if the Council had pared the whole street once, it was not right to break it up again because a man happened to take his cart over it.

THE SPEED OF MOTOR CARS. A communication was read from the Clerk of the County Council enclosing objections to the application of the County Council to the Local Government Board for the regulation of the speed of motor cars, from the Motor Union of Great Britain, thei Royal Automobile Club, and the Automobile Club of North Wales. The ob- jectors requested the Local Government Board to hold a local inquiry to give them an oppor- tunity of laying their objections in greater de- tail. The Main Roads Committee resolved that the objections reoeived be referred to Messrs W. J. Williams and T. Rcger& Jones for their observations thereon with full power to act, and make uch ar.Mngements in the urban district of Llanrwst as .hey might think necessary. The Chairman said that all the objections were in the fame strain They stated that the roads .we well adapted for motor vehicles, that the proposed limit would in no way add to the safety of the public, and if ;-nfoiced it would be vexa- tious, a.5 thos3 who drove along the roads did so with caution Mr W J Williams said that a.t the last meet- ing of th 3 County Council, Colonel Cornwaiiil West hoped that an inquiry would not be held as it was very costly. As he (Mr Williams) un- derstood from Mr Pettit., if the Council got some of the members to the town, they would then see that it was dangerous. The children from the town schools all made for the roads along which these cars travelled. He believed that Mr Pettit was quite convinced that the ap- plication was a reasonable one. On the motion of the Rev. Cynwyd Williams it was decided that the gentlemen named by the Clerk of the County Council should meet the Chairman and Mr Watling to represent the Ur- ban Council a.nd members of the Automobile Club of North Wales, to discuss the matter and try to come to some. arrangement.
ALL NIGHT LAMPS. A letter was read from Mr Edison Stone, the new manager of the Holyhead and North Wales Gas Company, with 1 aspect to the application of tho Council to have a number of the street lamps in Llanrwst lit all night. He took that oppor- tunity of assuring Council that it would be his earnest endeavour to work amicably with them and provide the district with a supply of gas, which would give tho greatest satisfaction. The question of the lamps was receiving con- sideration.
THE COUNCIL AND THE ELECTRIC LIGHT COMPANY. The Chairman reported that at a committee meeting thre members of the Council were appointed to oonfer with two members of the Geirionydd Council und to meet Mr Dawe, with regard to thj Llanrwst Electricity Supply Com- pany.

CRAFNANT FISHERY. After considerable discussion, the sub-com- mittee appointed by the Council to consider the application of Mr A. J. Wright, Trefriw, for a lease of the lake for a number of years, in order that the fishery might be improved, de- cided that the application could not be enter- tained, but that the Council itself should take in hand the matter of improving the fishery. They also decided to appoint a oomnritteo to further consider the matter, with power to invite some of the expert fishermen of the district to as ist them in deciding on the best moans of proceed- ing with the work. It was now decided that the whole Council should form the committee, and that the fol- lowing ou tsiders be added :—Messrs John Black- wall, G. Wynne, E M. Jones. M&efarlane, John Davies, E.
