There is much to be admired about the man- ner in which the Rhyl Urban District Council are dealing with their pavilion And beach gar- den scheme. Practically every man realises the importance of pushing the work forward without any unnecessary delay, and the progress made in consequence is very satisfactory. There was, it is true, some little trouble at Monday's special meeting, which might have arrested matters con- siderably. We refer to the point raised in refer- enoe to the choice of site. It was argued that the Council had made a mistake in fixing the site at the Edward Henry-street end of the pro- menade, and that the better situation would be at a spot a few hundred yards in the direction of the ill-fated Palace site. The success of the ven- ture oould hardly rest upon so small a difference from a given point. Provided the Pavilion were well managed it would attract its patrons though it were built half a mile away. As Mr Asher said, it should also not be forgotten that to erect the building in close proximity to the destroyed Palace—which may or may not be rebuilt— would be an unfair interference with the inte- rests of private ventures. It is gratifying to note that the Council eventually decided to adhere to their original decision on the question, especially having regard for the delay which would accrue from any change in the plans. At the present rate of progress, Rhyl should be in possession of its new pavilion within six months. The Small Holdings Act will come into force on New Ycir's Day, and for some reasons it will no doubt be hailed with delight by certain sec- tions of rural dwellers. Unfortunately, it is a confusing measure, and if it does not prove so sucoe&sful &-i its promoters anticipate that will be due to its construction rather than to its inten- tion. Some idea of how it is regarded by the man in the street m be gathered from the report of the Rhuddla.n Parish Council meeting which appears elsewhere. One member of that authority, in criticising the Act, declared that "young people are more inclined to kick football The exdrva. sion «ie somewhat vague, but the inference is ob- vious. Another member asked whether it was thought they should fight their neighbours, in- asmuch as all fie land in the neighbourhood of Rhuddian wac, already let. The Act certainly needs expounding I It has been a green Christmas after all. On Tuesday morning the landscape was cloaked in froar frost, and there were indications that the great Christian festival would be celebrated this year, at any rate, under the climatic conditions Dickens has taught us to associate with it. Yet the barometer warned us of a coming change, and before nightfall a tihaw set in which speedily released the ground from the frost's close em- brace. Nevertheless, though we had neither frost nor snow next morning, the holiday dawned pleasantly enough, and it was some satisfaction to think that the thousands of homeless poor in our land had spent the night in greater comfort tihan might have been the case. Christmas is as popular as ever. Indeed, if one may judge from the returns made by postal and other public ser- vices, it is steadily gaining in popularity year by year. None of us will bemoan this fact, for it affords evidence that, in spite of pesgimistg, humanity is progressiniz in the proper direction.
"ALONG THE COAST." (By a Travelling: Correspondent). This is written in the midst of wbolozale dealings "to the account of Christmas," and I join in the great wish of Tiny Tim, which we should a.H re-fcho at thia happy season, "God bless us, every one." May every inhabitant of th-J C-.)ast. from the highest to the lowest, have a 10,3plte from care and woiry and anxiety and a flood of perf-xt happiness this holiday leascn, an,] may there soon be a turn towards pros- perity in every home which lacks it. We can at least feel that there is ground for our being collectively as reasonably happy as is possible in our imperfect world, for we livei in a fine climate,and in a country so beautiful that if we but try to appreciate it, it will be a never failing source of aesthetic delight. Taking the popula- tion as a whole there is among us now !ess sick- ness than ever there was; practically no fevers; a lessening of the number of the tuberculous, and hope for those who, stricken with the disease, set about being cured sufficiently early. Then, in the words of the Bishop of St. Asaph, at Feetiniog, the other day, there never was a more prosperous, better fed, better clothed, better educated, and better behaved Wales than the Wales of-day. To that I add, you see, a healthier Wales, for the records of sickness and the death rate all show that there has been a marked improvement in both. The speech of the Bishop was full of scmnd wisdom which we ought to think over very carefully, each one of us, and make the best advantage of. On one point the Bishop was most definite: there are few things, he said, which give the buyer less value for hist money tlhan alcohol. I like the way in which that precept was put; it did not display the bigot, but it tells the man or woman who must make the best of a small income that, even from the point of view of economy, expen- diture upon alcoholic liquors is unwise. Then the doctrine of fresh air was enforced with the Bishop's vigorous touch. Just as we want an "open door" for British trade, we need an "open window" for every British bedroom:"— The window you should never close In any room where you repose; If icy breezes nip your nose, Just try an extra dose of clothes. The- Rhyl Council .ire, in a peculiar sense, "not out of the W<>oclt," for, although they have been to impetuously labouring with their scheme for what one of the daily papers calls the "Beacli Gardens," and havo gone so far as to engage architects, and get the consent of the ratepayers to their proposal, they are still called upon to reckon with a certain very keen business man in the person of Mr E. Stafford Howard, C.B., the executive commissioner of the Office of Woods, Forests and Land Revenues, 1 and 2, Whitehall-place, London, S.W. The Council may consider themaelve.g "out of the Woods" when they have obtained the permission of this Office to the enclosure of the for-eshore for the gardens = und the building of the assembly room. This is cecessary, although I believe that the Council in effect bought this part of the foreshore from the Office of Woods, some years ago. But, whe- ther they obtained only a. lease, or actually pur* chased the land, the oovenant entered into re- served the minerals under the land, and laid down certain other conditions to be observed by the Council. « All the surplus revenue collected by the Office of Woods and Forests goes to the relief of the taxes, and the best return is consistently made by the officers of the department. It happens that the foreshore of this Coast praotically all belongs, or belonged, to this Office, which is the custodian of the Crown lands of the United Kingdom. As a general thing the Office of Woods is eminently reasonable, and does not for- get that in exploiting the Crown property for the relief of the taxpayers the local public interests must be as far an possible considered. There- fore, in recent years, at any rate, there has at. ways, or nearly, beein given to the local authori- ties the first refusal of Crown property wliicn it was desired to lease or sell. For this reason Rhyl Council now holds a portion of the fore- shore, which they aro able to control for the pub- lio benefit, preventing nuisances, etc., and also Jetting the same for entertainments, such as the nigger minstrels. A few years ago, Mr Stafford Howard made an offer to sell the foreshore right into the Foryd to the Council, but though Mr J. H. Ellis strongly advocated the purohase, at what was really a reasonable price, the Coun- cil refused to entertain it, and since then the foreshore has been leased by Mr Wm. Horton, of Colwyn Bay. < < However, I should not think that there will be much trouble in getting the sanction required, .now that the Council are able to say exactly what they propose to do, and where they pro- pose to put the assembly room. A canvass of the owners of property opposite the site ball been made, and it was laid before the CouneO on Monday afternoon. The owners were asked to declare whether they approved of the build- ing of tho pavilion before their property or not, and there will, naturally, be curiosity to know what they think of the probable effect of the structure upon the value of their boarding houses. I am not able to give that opinion, for I understand that there was no public statement at the Council meeting as to the proportion of the frontagers who support and the proportion who oppose the enterprise. » Most kindly disposed Rhyl lesidenta will agreci with the condition in the proposed contract for the construction of the pavilion and gardens that local labour must be employed. Then is, with. cut doubt, a large body of employable unem- ployed at the present time in Rihyl, and they should have the first chance of the work on this contract But it is right that the disadvantages of such a condition should be stated. The con- dition will probably make the contract price higher, for every one who sends in a tender will be compelled to add to his price a percentage for tho contingency that the Rhyl labour may not be as efficient and as economical as that he might obtain in the open market. When a body of men know they must be employed they .naturally put a higher value upon their services, and they also might be less energetic than they would probably be if they felt they were open to outside competition. If the rule were rigidly adhered to, it would be quite possible for eudh combination to act greatly to the profit of the men and greatly to the loss of the master- But, of course, the condition will be limited in somo way so that any attempt of that kiiid would nullify it, and, furthermore, the contrac- tors will be free to bring in outsiders for special kinds of work. Mr S. Perks put the case in a very sensible way when he said that the number of working- men in Rhyl now is quite as large as the town can possibly find employment for, and to add to their struggle for existence by bringing in strangers would be very unfortunate. Rhyl ca& not ihope to have much fresh building work for years to come, not at any rAte until the new Beach Gardens and Pavilion have been de- veloped, but there ought to be occupation foaj building trade for years to oome in rebuild- ing and improving architecturally the property in the centre of the town. A beginning was made with the new North and South Wales Bank, but the elevations in High-street and other important streets need improving, though by that I do not mean raising to a much greater height. < < I am very pleased to find that the Colwyn" Bay Council and the directors of the Pier Company came to a good understanding last week, and that the arrangements for next season's concerts are already being made. The directors mean to carry out their share of the bargain generously, and the fact that they hope to secure a visit from Madame Tetrazzini is an earnest of their determination to make the concerts re attxac* tive as possible now that the Council have agreed to give them a reasonable opportunity of their being a financial success. The entente cordiale must have far reaching results, for if tho con- certs succeed the pier will prosper, and there wiU be the capital forthcoming for the great step of extending it out to deep water. Then there will be the landing stage provided, and a second pa- vilion built at the pier head. The steamers will call on their way along tihe Coast, a.nd the morn- ings at the pierhead will be most enjoyable in the summer season. I would like to see the main concert hall constructed on a great deck at the further end of the pier, and this would have the great advantage of being far enough from the railway to render the oocasional passage oJ- the trains less audible during the progress of the music. All this is a matter of time and money, and we must wait patiently, making the best of the present accommodation and helping the enterprise onward to the best of our power. A more pleasant and commodious pavilion than! the present one could not be desired, and thti only thing to be said in criticism of it is its oook parative proximity to the railway.
COLWYN BAY PIER CONCERTS. A MUTUAL ARRANGEMENT. Mr W. A. Pryce-Davis, secretary to tht Colwyn Bay Pier Pavilion directorate, writes us as follows, under date December 20th "I have pleasure in informing you that my directors at a meeting with a com. mittee of the Urban District Council, heli to-day, have come to a mutual arrange ment whereby the entertainments on the Promenade will be discontinued a,fter 7.30 p.m., next season, and this Company's high-class concerts will be continued and improved, together with other entertain- ments during the forthcoming season. "I may tell you that my directors are in negotiation for a visit of the world- renowned artiste, Madame Tetrazzini, who created such a furore during the recent operatic season in London, in the course of our next year's concerts. This mar- vellous singer, who, I am informed is reo ceiving for 40 appearances in the United States, is considered superior to Madame Patti in her best days. This step on the part of my directors will be a dis- tinct assurance to the public that our con- cert season next year will be of a very high order. Other eminent artistes are being approached so that the season in Colwyn Bav will stand out as one marked with evi- dence of the greatest efforts on the part of my directors in providing its visitors with the finest talent in the country."
