There is a good deal of truth in the old adage, "A touch o' nature makes the whole world kin," and in no instance can we re- collect a more striking exemplification than in the pathetic death of Mr Lloyd George's eldest daughter. From the King down- wards representatives of every class have sent messages of sympathy to the sorrowing President of the Board of Trade. For the nonce political differences are forgotten; only the pathetic figure of a bereaved father bowed down with grief and woe is before the world. The scene which transpired at the Llandudno Conservative Demonstration, on Friday night last, when Colonel Mostyn announced in sympathetic tones the sad in- telligence to the meeting, conveys some faint idea how deeply moved the entire com- munity has been at Mr f.loyd George's sudden affliction. We offer the bereaved. parents our respectful sympathy, and it will no doubt be some little consolation for them to think that from every home in the land mute expressions of sorrow have been ex- tended to them in their hour of trial. « An interview with Mr Mason, the chair- I man of the Colwyn Bay Pier Company, does not throw much additional light upon the reasons which actuated the directors in ar- riving at their decision to discontinue or- chestral concerts, but at all events it shows b w keenly the board have felt the rivalry of the < vening entertainments on the Pro- menade. It was satisfactory to know, however, that the directors arc even now willing, providing they get better support from the residents and experience less com- petition from the "light al fresco" entertain- ments,'encouraged by the Urban Council, to continue the concerts next season, and to, if possible, provide better fare for their patrons than in the past. We understand that an amicable interview between the re- sponsible committee of the Council and the Pier directors has already taken pl4c, and learn also that the committee have resolved to recommend the Council to stop all per- formances on the Promenade after seven o'clock. This latter request on the part of the directors is perfectly reasonable, and even though the Council directly lose cer- tain emoluments they now receive as rent, we feel confident that the ratepayers will more than recoup themselves through the additional prestige the town will gain amongst the very best class of visitors by the high-class orchestral concerts given in the Pavilion. No question of sentiment can possibly be involved in this matter. It is purely a matter of business. If the directors are not better supported -y the town resi- dents and their governing representatives than they have been in the past the orches- tral concerts will be abandoned. That is the plain and honest statement of the chair- man, and it should be accepted as such, and I therefore not be regarded as a mere piece of bluff, which we are tolerably sure it is not. We trust that the Urban Council will summon tact and common-sense to its aid, and adopt the recommendation of their committee. < » If any of our readers are still ignorant of the real aims of Socialism we strongly qd- vi -3 them to read the fine speech delivered by Mr Joseph Lloyd, a Rhyl solicitor, to a large audience at the Rhyl Constitutional Club the other night. It will, we are sure, be generally regarded as a most able ex- position of the real meaning and aims of Socialism. Other interesting speeches, "ere I; delivered by Mr W. J. P. Storey, an iron- master, who is a large employer of labour, Mr Harold Edwards (St. Asaph), and Mr Tilby, all of whom brought forward con- vincing arguments showing the utter im- practibility of the Socialistic idea. A courageous defence of the objects of the creed was offered by Mr C. Hubbard, a well known local Socialist of advanced opin- ions. This speaker, we believe, is a tailor's a -istant, and one of the party who, it is understood, would "largely benefit" by the division of spoils. However, the speeches all round were good, and the full report we present elsewhere will probably be read with interest. < < The address of the Bishop of St. Asaph at the C.E.T.S. meetings was a calm and impassionate review of the temperance question. Furthermore, the speech was a particularly sane and well-thought-out one. The arguments it contained against the idea prevalent in many circles that the country could be made sober by Act of Parliament, were very much to the point. We should have liked to learn the Bishop's opinion of the dual basis, and upon which an interest- ing discussion transpired. At present the constitution of the Society allows the ad- mittance of teetotallers and non-teetotallers, i.e., total abstainers and those who arc known as moderate drinkers. Several speakers deplorod the necessity of observing the dual basis arguing that a person who ) Z, was not a strict teetotaller was not quite the proper person to try and convert a drunken man into a sober man, because his influence | naturally could not be so strong and so ef- fective as that of the teetotaller. It is, however, quite possible for a temperate man to have as much influence over an intern- rnate person as a total abstainer. Hard drinkers as a rule have an astonishing amount of prejudice against a man who cannot take a glass of beer, in some cases because his principles arc rigid on the point, and in others because he dare not, and it is just this feeling that creates the prejudice he feels against the total abstainer. It would undoubtedly be folly to endeavour to promote temperance solely through the ex- cellent services of total abstainers, and we are glad the conference recognised the point.

ABEKGELE NATIONAL SCHOOLS. PRIZE DISTRIBUTION. The scholars at tho Abergele National Schools who had gamed the prizes offered by tne County j Education Authority for good attendances, were handed these awards to-day week. Mr Herbert Roberto, M.P., in the absence of Mrs Herbert Roberts, wno was unable to be present owing to indisposition, distributed the prized. Tho lol- lowmg managers of t e schools were present: Tne Vicar. Mr Duncan Miller, Mr Inglis, and Mr E. H. Miilward. Tho three departments of the schcol were visited by Mr Roberts, who expressed gratifica- tion at the intelligent appearance of the children, and the well-equipped character of the building. He highly complimented Mr Bedford, Miss Gittins, and Miss Jones, and their assistants, upon the large percentage of boys, girls, and infans who had gained books and certificates, and upon the general success of their educational efforts. ENCOURAGING THE CHILDREN. In addressing the children, Mr Roberts urged them to make the best possible use of the great advantages they enjoyed these days. Their success depended entirely upon their own efforts; all that was needed was to be good a.nd in- dustrious. He specially urged them to make themselves thoroughly acquainted with the history I' of tel" own county, and with the lives of those it. thy county who had risen to positions of in- fluence and power in the world, so that they might bo induced to emulate them, and show similar courage and determination.

PENSARN PROMENADE: SUGGESTED IMPROVEMENTS. (To the Editor tf the "lionecr.") Sir,—Kindly allow me to supply Mancurian with a little infurmation regarding tus suggested improve- ments to the promenade at fensarn, winch appeared in your last issue. "Mancurian'' suggests t-lie removal of stones, etc., to enable visitors to have easier access to the sands. This work has been carried out for some years tuning tilo visiting was,JU, when the Oouncil's employees visit the promenade and beach almost every day, and make up the footpath leading down the wooden pier on to the sands. Naturally 'Davy Jones" does not respect their work, and it needs continual attention, which is not warranteLl during the winter months. "Mancurian" will be pleased to know that the Council decided some months ago to erect another shelter on the promenade, and the work will be commenced at an early date. We have bad a minstrel troupe on the beach for some years. Unfortunately, last season was very wet, and the troupe left us through lack of support. lkganling improvements, two of our Pensarn ooun- cill"rs a few days ag > ► pent a deal of time replanting trees on Dundonald Avenue. The young trees had hardly been in the ground two hours before one of them was wantonly broken off. Three others shared 11 similar fate on Saturday last. It is to b,) huped that the Council, who offer £5 reward, will make an example of the first person detected in this wanton destruction of public property, which certainly does not encourage them to improve things. Nine-tenths of the Oouncil work IS dune in committee, and when it is considered that the 4s rate producrs roughly only £ 1,600, we ought to be assured that our representatives make it go as far as they can, especially as it is intended to reduce the rate this J coming year.—I Mn, etc., AUDI ALTERAM PABTSai.
"ALONG THE COAST." (8¥ a Travelling: Correspondent). The Oohvyn Bay Council made what I ocui&ider to be a very gcod offer to the Victoria Pier Compasty, who, it seems to .me, would act wisely if fihey accepted it in the friendly spirit in which it is made. Because the 'Council have hitherto not been able to ice eye to eye with the Company with regard to the Promenade competition is no rcaso-n why tho proposal now made should not be accepted. I think I can properly claim a. modest sihare in bringing about this ha.ppy result by my advocacy of the Com- pany's case in recent weeks. From the begin- ning I havo acted a.nd written entirely in the intcrcEts, as I understand them, of Colwyn Ba.y, Mbd I have not the least interest in or concern with the Pier Company. This explanation ie necessary in order that Colwyn Bay readers of this weekly letter may pay attention to what I have to say upon the offer of settlement which is proposed to be sent by the Council to tihe Pier Company. The matter is a very important one, in the best "business" intereets of the Bay. It is the fashion in these "hutling" days to think of "business" as being quite apart from "moral" questions, and to cast to the winds all "moral" scruples that seem to interfere with, or block up the broacl road to wealth. » If there be any single institution in Colwyn Bay in the prosperity of which the whole coinr munity is interested, it is the Pier and the Pavi- lion. There are object lessons as to this to the right and to the left. The state of matters at Rhyl is largely due to the fact that the Pier is not the rendezvous that it should be. On our right, wo have the fine example of Llandudno, whc.re the Pier, according to the notice recent- ly published, is to be widened to double its pre- sent width, merely because it is the recogniced reeort of the visitors during the summer sea- son. • • • • Therefore, if the Colwyn Bay people will dio what is J'ight by tho Pier, they will also bene- fit vhcm¡:.elvet3. The few thousands a year which would represent a handeonio profit upon the Ccanpajpy's capital, would be well deserved if they gained for the place a great reputation for high ciass music. The cost to the ratepayers would bo enormously lees if they had to provide the concerts out of the rates. We must recol- lect that the Company made a capital beginning by the engagement of tho late Mons. Juke Riviere, and by securing Madame Patti for tho opening concert. Hvw in the world can they keep that sort of thing up unless they get the revenues to pay for it? They cannot continue to sustain high-class concerts out of capital. The institution must be self-supporting, and the very least that the town can do is to givo it and other in-door amusements a reasonable monopoly in tho evenings. As I said last week, tho Rhyl Council will take care to prevent com- petition with the concerts they are going to pro- vide out of the rates. LlandJudnfJo aro still ad- hering to their policy, in t-pitc of the slight de- parture from it which was allowed under special oiicumstances last summer. • • • • Pocsibly an attempt may be made to oust the Council out of the position they have now taken up, imixnely, to- stop performances on the Pro- menade after half-past seven o'clock in the even- ings, on the ground that the Council have, out 01 fear, given way to the Pier Company. Thin is an important business matter to be dealt with in a reasonable and sensible maimer, and not under any childish feeling of pique. As I take it, t'he Company were tired of incurring the ex- peinye of the concerts and indulging in tine up- hill figlnt against adverse innuouces, &nd they plainly told the Council so. I lurther believe that they would have adhered to their decision to let too .Pavilion to. the highest bidder. Tlno Council have had tlhe good sentc to try to avert such a misfortune, and the town should back tne Council up 1ll their offer, and not aitow it to be witindmwn. • • • • I think tha.t there will be no objection by the directors to there being performances on the Promenade by the town band, so that there will still bo something for the folk who like tlhcir amueements "on the cheap." I must also point out that the prevention oi other amusements on the Promenade aiter 7.30 does not givo the Pier Company a. solo monopoly. The monopoly wiil be chared by t'he proprietors of the Public Hall, and possibly by the proprietors of the proposed "Winter Gardens" at Rnos-on-Sea, and of any other entertainers runnin.g their performances on private property. Once the principle that there is not to be municipal opposition is adopted^ there will be a.n inducement for further capital to be laid out in the town, in the provision of places of entertainment. There is the Pier to be lengthened, and a. landing-stage to be built. There is the "Winter Gardemis" scheme cf our friend, Mr Lalande. We could do with a good theatre. The town stands to gain by the pro- vision of suitaiblo places of amusement, by the lengthening of the Pier, but who would bo so unwieo as to lay out capital upon any of these schemes, with the object lessons of Rhyl and Co-iwyn Bay before them, until there is a change of policy and a fa.irer spirit exhibited towards their enterprise. • • • Here, therefore, I get in my little lesson on the intimate connection between morals and business previously fore-shadowed in this week's notes. The doctrine is being taught the Ameri- can people just now with special emphasis, and we have to unlearn a good deal of the "ema.rt- ness" which we have been inclined to copy from Yankee policy, and to remember that those who practice such "smartness" in the loaig run ai- waiys over-reach themselves. It is a nathor singular thing that just now there should be two of the towns within my sphere cf influence whoso Coaincils are thinking of buying cut their local Gas Company. Mat- ters have gone so far at Penmaenmawr that practically an offer has been made. I believo that the HoJythcad and North Wales Gas and Water Corporation, who are the owners of tilie works, have been informed that if they are dis- posed to send in a bill for a sum not exceeding a certain figure the Council will write cut a cheque for it, and accept the gas works as con- sidoeraticm therefor. I fancy that the amount to which the Council are prepared to go has been stated in the pa.pere, but I do not propose to repeat it. It is a good sporting offer, and I hope it will be accepted. The Council will then become tho owners of the historic building now incorporated in the works which wae at one time the only elementary stlhooi in Dwygyfylchi, and maintained by the iamily of Colonel Darbi- shire. My congratulations to Colonel Darbishire upon his well-deserved dignity of "Dc.puty-Lieutcna.nt eti Carnarvonshire." The effect of the new ap- poittfmont will be to give Colonel Darbishire aji important duty in connection with the new territorial force of the county. In future the position and dignity of "Deputy-Lieutenant" is only to bo given for military reasons, and under the new arrangements as to organisation each ociunty is to produce its own proportion of troops who are to bo commanded by the Lord-Lieuten- ant and his deputies. Thus, we are reverting to the military eystom of our forefathers, whether we have descended from Welsh or English stock. In former days, Wales was peopled by clans in which most "of the males were fighting men, and the same thing is true of the Anglo-Saxon pro- genitors. As it eemj to me that all parties in the State a.re doing their best to establish tihe new territorial system upon a sound basis, I should not be surprised if before many years have passed we ahall be taking a. pride in our county troops, and prepared to defend our home- land against all camera. » » The other town which is dealing with the gaa works problem is Abergele. As far as I under- stand it, the question there is rather more diffi- cult because Abergele is but a. small town. How- ever, I should think that both the Council and the Company will meet together in an amicable and reasonable frame of mind, and come to a. just settlement. If the Council buy, tihcy will bo able to make such improvements as may be needed, and in the long run, if they pay a not exorbitant price, they will earn a. dividend upon vho transaction for the benefit of the rate- payers. • • • ■ In tihe meantime, what do you think of the "Act for Municipal Reform" which the local legislature at Abergele solemnly held on the "House of Commons," at the Ship Cafe, are- considering ? The Act, be it known, is to re- store to the town the oharter of ririvilegeB aJ- leged to have been granted by Edward I. wflien on his way from tho Rhuddvan Parliament Houfio to his castle at Conway. The charter is, of course, lost; but the search for it might be hopefully entrusted to the Antiquarian S0- ciety I

REPORTED IMPORTANT CONCESSIONS BY THE COUNCIL INTERETING INTERVIEWS WITH MR. MASON. Things have moved apace since the last issue oi the Pioneer, and, judging from the interview a Pioneer representative had with Mr Mason, the chairman of the Victoria Pier Company, it now appears that if the Colwyn bay Urban Council arc prepared to do what is fair and reasonable, the Pier Company, on their part, arc also prepared to reconsider their decision and continue the orchestral concerts. This is business, and a fair attitude to adopt. The following is a copy of a circular which the company have issued, and which, needless to say, has also an important bear- ing upon the question IMPORTANT TO ALL. High-class concerts are just as essential to the life and well-being of Colwyn Bay, Old Colwyn, and Rhos, as sunshine and baimy breezes. The Pier Company are prepared to con- tinue and improve the high-class concerts in the Pavilion if they are encouraged by the residents subscribing liberally for season tickets. As the Pier Company's decision de- pends upon the support accorded it, it be- hoves every resident to subscribe for as many season tickets as possible. Colwyn Bay, Old Colwyn, and Rhos ought to, and must, become a still greater fashionable re- sort, but nice people can only be attracted by refined and high-class concerts. If you will help to make this delightful district the ideal rendezvous of the pleasure-seeker, kindlv fill in the form annexed. The annexed portion takes the form of an order for seats which will, in turn, be call,(I for by the pier employees entrusted with the distribution.
INTERVIEW WITH MR MASON. THE ATTITUDE OF THE PIER COMPANY. On Tuesday evening, Mr Mason (chair- man of the Pier Company), accorded an in- terview to a representative of the "Pioneer," in which he explained the attitude the Pier Company had taken up. "We have," he said, "as has already been pointed out, felt that unless we get considerably more encouragement from the residents by subscribing more liberally for season tickets, we cannot continue to give the high-class concerts which we have done in the past. This is no matter of bluff, as some people in the town seem to take a particular pleasure in spreading about; it is a matter of expediency. The cost of run- ning a high-class orchestra such as we have had in the past, together with the vocalists with big reputations, runs into several thou- sand pounds, and the directors know ..iat they can provide entertainments of a lighter character at one-half the outlay. "In order to test the feelings of the resi- dents as to what support the company can rely on they have decided to circularise the district, and the nature of the replies will determine the directors in the course they will subsequently pursue. It is quite evident that the Llandudno Urban Dis. trict Council are one of two things, wise or unwise, in prohibiting every form of amusement on the Promenade and in the streets after 6.30 in the evening. We have seen that in consequence of the competition on the Promenade at Rhyl, the Council have strangled all private enterprise. If Colwyn Bay is to maintain and improve its position as a high-class health resort it must provide high-class con- certs in order to attract the people who otherwise would go elsewhere. It is no good playing with the fact that light enter- tainments can only result in bringing the masses, a class we would rather not cater for. It is a pity that the directors nave been compelled to circularise the district in order to see what assistance the residents can give, in the form of financial encour- agement, to continue the concerts. In our opinion it behoves every hotel proprietor, boarding-house keeper, tradesmen, anu pri- vate residents to take as many season tick- ets as possible. I believe that if there is a generous response the directors will not only give high-class concerts next year from Easter until the end of September, but that they will further improve the tone of the concerts, and in addition provide out-door amusements on the Pier for those who pre- fer to be in the open air. I believe a few people try to make out that we want to create a monopoly, but we want nothing of the kind. We don't object to 500 light en- tertainments coming into the town if .ey care to, but what we think is that after 6-30 at night our concerts should not be inter- fered with by the Council allowing alfresco entertainments on the Promenade. 1 he public will not suffer by any such restric- tions on the contrary, they will be the gainers. The niggers and picrrots are chiefly for the amusement of young people. Surely there is sufficient time for them from 9 a.m. till 7 p.m. ? "If we get fair play we shall run the con- certs for 26 weeks. We should also have out-door entertainments on the Pier in or- der to amuse both young and old. That will show a desire on the part of the Pier directors to cater for the wants of every class of visitor. If the master comes to the town, his manager will come, and then the superintendent. The result will be that the workmen will say "The master's gone there, let us go for our pic-nic." "The place must become fashionable, and we can only make it so by getting nice peo- ple to come here. To get nice people we must have refined entertainments, and what has proved so highly beneficial to Llandud- no is at least worth trying, if only for a year, in Colwyn Bay. But we must have support, or we cannot exist. "Rhyl will never get back the reputation of a fashionable resort, and if they once allow the concerts to go Colwyn Bay will be in the same street, and Llandudno will con- tinue as the 'Queen of Watering-places in Wales.' If the residents here could only appreciate the enormous possibilities of colwyn ttay it wouiu unuouDteaiy De tne premier place on the coast. Its situation is ideal, its climate is unique, and more than any other place on the coast could it be made 'an all the year round' resort. "Rhyl are going to have a new pavilion, but I am of opinion that it will not be a success. So much interest cannot be taken in. the concern by a municipal body, who are constantly changing in members, as by a private company. At Harrogate, Chel- tenham, and other places they have not been the success anticipated. I wish to emphasise the fact that it is not the inten- tion of the directors to close the Pavilion or the Pier on the contrary, we shall do every- thing possible to draw visitors to the town, but, of course, these entertainments cannot and will not embrace a first-class orchestra with vocalists unless we are supported both by the Council and residents." THE COUNCIL AND THE PIER COMPANY. We understand that a committee meeting of the Council, held during this week, at which the directors of the Pier were pre- sent, the committee decided, although not unanimously, to accede to the request of the Pier Company, that no performances should be held on the Promenade after 7.30 in the evening. This decision has, of course, to be adopted by the Council.

CONWAY TOWN COUNCIL. PROPOSED WORKMEN'S DWELLINGS. FREEDOM OF THE BOROUGH FOR MR ALBERT WOOD. The monthly meeting of the Conway Town Council was held on Wedmeeduy alter noon, the Mayer (Alderman Dr. R. A. Prichard) presid- ing, arid the other members present were Alder- man Edward Roberts, Alderman W. M. Sever, Dr. M. J. Morgan, Meesrs James Porter, Ed- waird Jones, Fred Jones, A. G. Rogers, Hugh Owen, A. J. Oldman, Robert Jones, E. Loyd Jones, a.nd Heiiiry Jones, together with Mr T. E. Parry (cler £ ), Mr F. A. Delamotte (surveyor), Mr Hugh Parry (accountant), Mar H. Dixon (gas manager), Mr D. Jones (collector), and other officials. SYMPATHY WITH MR LLOYD GEORGE. At the outset, the Mayor referred in touching terms to Mr Lloyd George's bereavement., and moved that the heartfelt sympathy of the Coun- cil be extended to him and his family in their great sorrow. The members signified their a.p- proval by rising in their places. COLNCIL AND THE POST OFFICE. The mimrtes of a special Council meeting, which had been held to meet the Superintendent Engineer of the North Wales District Post. Office Toleg.ia.phs to further discuss the question of their application for overlhead wires, were brought up for confirmation. The Council had resolved to refer tho matter to the Highways Committee to report upon at the next Council meeting. Mr Robert Jones moved that the application of the Postal Authorities be granted witbout further delay. He asked the Council not to let any vindictive feeling interfere in the matter. Tho Mayor: I must rule you out of ender. The matter was adjourned fox the Engineer to report on it. Mr Robert Jones: Then, I must ask why the matter was not mentioned at the Highways Com- mittee? Mr Ediward Jones: It was unanimously agreed that the Engineer should report on the matter. Mr Robert Jones: That ie no explana-tion at all.

The committee'a report was adopted. A "BREEZE." Mr RcJ^ert Jones said that he desired *o com- pliment toe Gas Committee on the Way they con- ducted tneir business. In this committee the gas manager always produced a requisition book, wmch was exammed and signed by. the Chair- man. He suggested that the Surveyor should also produce a requisition bock to the other com- mittees. Tne Mayor said that ho must rule Mr Jones out of order, unless he confined himself to the minutes of the Gas Committee, which were be- fore the Council. Mr Robert Jones: I am very sorry, air, that C™ rn\L °f °Trder- You done so w';icn I know I was in the right You rwrmC °Ut °rdcr Wlth tho Workmen's JJweHmgs question The Mayor: The least you say about tho.t met- ter tne better.

Mr Robert Jones rose to propose his mo- tion on the workmen's dwellings question. The Mayor said that accordlyg to the Standing Ordexs, no proposition wmch had been negotiated by the Gounod could be discussed again within six momhs. He, however, placed' miiitela entirely in. the iiands of the council- Mr A. J- Oldman submitted that the motion had not been, moved in a Council meeting, and therefore it had not been negpwated. Tne Clerk: It has been referred to a com- mittee, but they did not report upon it, so I suppose it feM fthrougih. Tno Mayor: 'H1en I take it that it was nega- ti ved- Mr A. J. Oldnwin moved that Mr Robert Jones be allowed to proceed with his motion, and this was agreed to. Mr Robert Jones then proposed: "That the Town Council take into coneuierauon the ques- tion of the providing 0: workmen's dwellings in tiie borough." He aakedi. the Council to tako the matter into their sere-ue consideration. It was not necessary for him to reieT to the in" sa.nitary condition cf <9jmie of the houses in Conway. He proposed tinat the Council ap- point a committee to be caiLled a Housing Com- mittee to go into the question and rcxirt upon it. 1. the committee failed in their object, he would not trcubiie the Council any more with the subject. Dr. Morgan 9cconded, and remarked that he was glao to learn that they were likely to have eotnio cottagea built by private enterprise in the borough, so. that probably there might be no need for the Council to aiect Incuses- Mr James Pointer (Supported iho motion, and said he would like to know from the borough surveyor how many workmen there were in Contwav occumvjnig houses which were not in a sanitary condition. The Council were the owners of freeholds of large houses in tho borough, and he did not thin'k because they had land' they should give it for workmen's dwellings if iw3lit would prove detrimental to existing ro- penty- It would bo better for them to nur- O;lase land for workmen;6 dwellings in a healthy I position thin to spoil their own piopetrtv.

The whole question of sanitation would have to be considered- They wow:.d have to cktSe tlhe old houses altogether, or put up new ones where the old ones now et.and. The Mayor said that the o:d not think there was an insanitary house in Oon-wav. There ». as not a !bout'};) in the borough which the medical officer would condomn. Tho moOical officer had been asked to do so, a.nd had refused. He, however, did not say that there were no cases of overcrowding- T'he Surveyor said that some of the occupiers of the largest liooises were often tne greatest offenders in overcrowding. Upon being put to the vote, tih motion was carried' nem- con., and the following were ap- pointed1 to constitute tho Housing Committee: Alderman Edwa.rd Roberts, Messrs James Por- ter, Dr. Morgan, A. G. Rogers. Hugh Owen, Robert Jones, and Henry Jones, with the Mayor as chairman. BYE-ELECTION DEMANDED.

Harrison, with the Clerk (Mr W. H. Ellis). It was decided to hold a special meeting of the Council to consider the Small Holdings Act. SUGGESTED IMPROVEMENTS AT THE RAILWAY STATION. A le.ter was read from Mr Horne, of the London and North-Weste.n Railway Company, stating that all application was made some time ago by the Town Improvement Association and t. e Urban District Council for the platforms at Llanfairfechan to be raised, but it was found on going into the matter that in order to do this, it would practically mean the re-building of the station, and the question of providing more waiting accommodation was borne in mind at the same time, but in view of the heavy expenditure which would be necessary to bring about the im- provements asked for he was instructed to state that the matter had been deferred for the present. Mr Jorss remarked that t.ie sp-platfo m at Llanfairfechan was a disgrace to any station, es- pecially at this time of the year. In fact, per- sons might be blown under ihe train. He moved that a letter be sent to the head offices of the railway company in London, but this was not seconded. TO AID THE UNEMPLOYED. A letter was read from the County Council with regard to the Unemployed Workmen's Act of 1907, drawing atten ion to the fact that it was proposed to print leaflets making known the fact that a labour register was being kept, and directing the unemployed where to apply for work, and asking for certain information with regard to the registcrio. Mr W. G. Roberts complained that no heed was paid to the information which the Council gave last year. MISCELLANEOUS. The death-rate for November was reported to be 7.9, as against 20.1 for the corresponding month of last year, the number of bir.hs being three. The Collector reported having collected CI06 14s 2d during the past month. A letter was read from the Governors of St. Andrew's Hospital asking for information with regard to their application for a reereaticn ground and in respect of the water supply. An application from Mr Cecil Haworth. of Weston-super-Mare, for permission to introduce a pierrot troupe into Llanfai: fechan next season was referred to a committee. THE DISPUTE WITH THE MINSTRELS. Mr Lane, solicitor, Gloucester, wrote sta ing that he had been consulted by Mr A. Wentworth with reference to an application to him for the sum of £ 10, alleged to be due to the Council for the right to play on the fores ore and Pro- menade at Llanfairfechan with his troupe of minstrels. There was no doubt this sum wa3 menade at Llanfairfechan with his troupe of minstrels. There was no doubt this sum was agreed to be paid only on condition that no other minstrels should be allowed to play. This agreement was broken by the Council allowing an Hungarian Band tQ play in oppo ition to his client. and this naturally very largely affected his client's receipts. Under the circumstances his client would should the Council bring an action against him. file a counter-claim for damages for breach of contract. Mr Wentworth had visited Llanfairfechan for a large number of ye^re, and until this season there had been no unpleasantness of a.ny description, and he therefore trusted that it would not be necessary to take the case into court. Having received a letter from the Council's clerk, Mr Lane subsequently wrote hoping that a oompromite would be offceted in view of the pleasant relationship which had existed between the parties. Without prejudice and in order to settle the unfortunate dispute he would be willing to advise his client to pay the Council L5. They did not anticipate competition, and as a matter of fact paid the Council a higher rent for the pri- vilege of performing on the Promenade than they ever did before. It was decided to accept the offer.
