PUBLIC MATTERS AT COLWYN BAY. Several matters of the greatest interest to Coiwyn Bay ratepayers have been under consid- eration this week by the Urban District Council. It is with no little satisfaction that the public view the favourable prospects of the Council and the Light Railway Company arriving at an un- derstanding on questions of detail which have meant delay in the completion of an undertaking from which great things are expected. With regard to the continuance of the Pier concerts, some doubtful points have been cleared up which may help to facilitate an amicable ar- rangement between the Council a.nd the Pier Company. Another matter particularly con- cerning the ratepayers was the decision of the Court of Appeal yesterday in the case of Mr Horton against the Urban Council, in which Mr Justice Bigham's judgment wa3 affirmed, and, the appeal dis- missed with costs. Public feeling is of too ge,uerous a character to rejoice over the ap- pellants' defeat as such, but having regard to tho heavy expense which followed such a law suit the decision of the court affords satisfaction to the ratepayers, who would otherwise have been called upon to pay the charges which the litiga- tion would entail.. Mr Horton has fought á plucky but unsuccessful fight with the Council, ajid this is the third if not the fourth action of importance in which they have been engaged. He is .now himself a member of the local au- thority, and that there is no ill-feeling between him and his whilom opponents is obvious from the manner in which he and they work together for the good of the ratepayers in general.
The future of the Coiwyn Bay Pier concerts is yet undecided. When the Company asked the Urban Council to help them by placing a limitation upon the hours for entertainments on the Promenade, the local authority, after much discussion, decided that out-door performances on the sea-front should be discontinued after 7.30 p.m., on certain conditions. One of these conditions was that the Pier directors should provide ooncerts of such a standard as would meet the approval of a committee of the Cotin- oil. This is now the stumbling block in the way of a settlement of the matter. At Tues- day's meeting of the Council a communication was read from the secretary to the Pier Com- pany, from which it appeared that whilst object- ing to the committeey the directors were ready to accept any suggestions in reference to the conccrts. In whatever light the attitude of the directors may be regarded, one can quite appre- cia-to their reluctance to agree to a committee exercising supervision over the programme which the musical directors of the concerts proposed to submit to the public. If, however, as was stated on Tuesday, the desire of the Council is simply to have a guarantee that the concerts will be of tfhe requited high-class character, then possibly a way may still be found out of the difficulty when the deputation from the Council meet the directors of the Pier Company. On more than one occasion we have drawn at- tention to the desirability of providing an isola- tion hospital for the St. Asaph district. How far our contention was justified could be gathered by those who heard a case brought before Judge Moss at the Rhyl County Court on Friday. From the report of tho proceedings, which appear else- where, it will be seen that in the absence of an hospital a patient suffering from scarlet fever was glad to seek the shelter of a private houses where he was nursed, and it cannot be said that the nursing was unsatisfactory. No doubt the nurse understood her duties, and took the ne- cessary precautions to prevent infection. But, however much caro is exercised under similar circumstances, it is to tho interests of the com- munity that there should bo a public institution whore cases of infectious disease can be removed and treated without danger to the public health. It stands to reason that an Isolation Hospital provides facilities for dealing with such cases which cannot be obtained in private houses. "There is an evil practice in this part of North Wales," a correspondent to "Country Life" writes, "which threatens to destroy one of its characteristic beauties. Anyone who has fishedi about here knows tho extraordinary beauty of the messes that cover the rocks in the beds of streams and in the woods. This moss is being stolen in great quantities and sent off by rail, presumably to servo as packing. It is no un- common thing for as much as twenty sacks (Q leave one of our little stations—Arthog- ill ont day." Quito a group of Welsh vocalists have rcv cently made their debut in London. Miss Ei Gwyn we have already noted. At the National Sunday League's concert at the Alhambra thft) other night there appeared a new tenor in the person of Mr Gwilym Wigley, who should prove a welcome addition to the ranks of concert vocalists. His voice is of refined calibrc. and is described as reminiscent of that of Mr John Coates, although it is not so powerful; a.nd he sings with taste and artistic perception. But what is most remarkable is the fact that until & few days ago Mr Wigley was singing as a bass at a London theatre. We know several tenors —Mr Ccates is one of them—who originally started as baritones, but for a bass singer to turn to tenor is, wo think, unprecedented. This was Mr Wiglcv's first appearance as a concert soloist, and he was most enthusiastically encored for a. fine rendering of the familiar 'On with the motley,' from 'Pagliacci. Mr Wigley is a nativo of Maesycwmmer, and is a younger brother of Mr T. R. Wigley, headmaster of the Griffithstown Council School.
PERSONAL. Sir Charles McLaren, Bart., M.P., has been appointed a county magistrate for Surrey. Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P., Junior Lord of the Treasury, has contracted a cold, and has can. celled his engagements. Mr Ellis Jones Griffith, M.P., has been called away to Paris on account of the illness there of his daughter. Lord Hugh Grosvenor left London on Monday for Combermere Abbey on a. visit to Katherin Duchess of Westminster. Mr J. C. Munro, formerly an officer in the Montgomeryshire Imperial Yeomanry, is retiring from the mastership of the Afcherstone Hounds at the end of this season. An engagement is announced between Lieut.- Fletcher, son of the Rev. Canon Fletcher, rec- tor of Marchwiel, and Miss Winifred Ormrod, second daughter of Mr Peter Ormrod, of Penylan. Mr W. Evans, the Inspector-General of Bank" ruptcy, will retire on pension on January 1st, and will be succeeded by Mr J. G. Willis, junior assistant secretary in the railway department of the Board of Trade. Mr Evans was brother to the late Mr J. Arthur Evans, formerly pro- prietor of the "Herald" series of papers. We are glad to state that Mr Frangoon Davies* health is improving, and that the severe nervous breakdown from which be collapsed three weeks ago is yielding to the complete rest enjoined by the doctor. Mr Davies' breakdown was due to the overwork entailed by literary labour and lectures over a.nd above his ordinary professional work. Mr Lloyd George will receive tho froedom of the city of Cardiff on Friday, January 24th. This date was fixed as a result of an interview which the Lord Mayor (Councillor Ultyd ThomasJ has had with the President of the Board of Trade. The ceremony will probably take place at a public luncheon at the City Hall. Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn entertained a large house party at Wynnstay last week, including the Countess of Dundonald, and the Hon. Miss Cochra.ne. the Hon. Mrs Charles Williams, and Miss Williams, Mrs Hould,worth, and Miss Assheton-Smith, and Mr and Mrs Griffiths. COMTNG-OF-AGE FESTIVITIES IN ANGLESEY. Mr Richard Gerard Wellesley Williams- Bulkeley, Baron Hill, Beauamris, attains his majority on the 21st July next, and the event will be celebrated by general and special re- joicings throughout the extensive Baron Hill Estates, in Anglesey, where his father, the pre- sent Sir Richard Williams-Bulkoley, Bart., and Lady Magdalen Bulkeley are deservedly popu. lar, as indeed is Mr Richard himself. MR J. HERBERT ROBERTS' NEW CHESHIRE ESTATE. The residence a.nd estate of Dawpool, near West Kirby, Cheshire, which belonged to the lato Mr T. H. Ismay, head of the White Star Line, has been purchased by Mr J. Herbert Roberta, M.P., the price paid being about £50,000. The mansion, which was built by Mr Ismay in 1865, is beautifully situated on the Doe estuary, and the estate comprises nearly 400 acres. The houso was designed by Mr Norman Shaw, anlt built regardless of cost. --1. ARMY AND VOLUNTEER NOTES. (From the "Gazette"). 3rd Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers-Hoo. Edward L. R.

We are glad to state that Colonel Holdsworth, who reoently received injur- ies in the hunting field, is rapidly recovering. Lord Harlech has been entertaining a party of six guns at Cefn Coch and Selattyn Hall. On Thursday week he was out with the Cheshire Hounds, which met at Cholmondeley; ond ON Friday, with the Hon. W.
