North, M.J1;6tT.E., conducted an inquiry on' behalf of the Lccal Government Board at the Council Chambers on Tuesday morning respecting the application of the Coun- cil for sanction to borrow E500 for works of water supply.

H, Roberts (-.t'epufy eleik), and Mr Wm. Jones (engineer). The clerk stated that tho population of the district at t.he last census was 8689, but tho present estimated population was 13,000. and the rateable value £ 75,739. The Joans under the Sanitary Act amounted to £ 97,163, and under private Acts £ 187.383, mak- ing a tot-al of B284,551. A penny rate produced £ 300. The L500 in question was requited to meet certain expenditure on water IUJins dur- ing the next, two or three years. He explained that if water mains were laid in new ro.ads b3- fore there was a full demand, they asked' the owners to meet 7 per oent. of the outlay umil the main was running its full capacity. All the work was within the district, and tho water supply was sufficient to serve tIe proposed maiu £ Cohvyn Ba.y was a constituent authority of the Conwav and Colwyn Bay Water Board. Mr Wm. Jonos. the engineer, said they had been compelled within the last two months to spend £ 124 3s in view of this loan, and that the Coun- cil owned no workable roeervoir.

VISIT OF WOMEN LIBERALS—Yesterday a largo number of the. members of the HooJe anu' Newton (Chester) Women's Liberal Asso- ciation visited the town on their annual ouiing. The company was in charge of Mrs Tasker, clia Irwolylall Mrs Lawson, treasurer; Mrs Wor- ra-11, a member of the committee; and Mrs Wil- lianlf;, secretary. Unfortunately the weather was of the most wretched -rairi fall- ing during the whole of the day, and the mem- bers of the company having- to remain indoors. Tlie one redeeming feature was an excellent tea prepared at (.'a-rtmeH's Restaurant, to which everyone did full justice. During tea the fol- lowing telegram was reau from Mr Alfred Mond, M.P. for Chester: "Heartiest greetings and br"t wishes to our dear friends, from Violet and Alfred Moud." Mrs T. M.

A, hearty vote of thanks war, tendered Mrs T. M. Jones, on the motion of Mrs Tasker, secoati!- ed by Mrs Williams. TIIE PIER CONCERTS. These entertainments attract large gatherings each evening now, and on Saturday evening the big Pavilion was comfortably filled in all parts. The soloist was Mr David Evans, whose "dis- covery" (so far as North ales is concerned) is due to Mr Pryee-Davis, the Pavilion directorate's secretary. When Mr Evans made his first ap- pearance at Cohvyn Bay, about a niont^h ago, it was regarded by the promoters as "a risky ex- periment," but never was an experiment more successful. The South Wales baritone made a triumphant debut, and more than maintained that guecess throughout the week. That the directorate were satisfied with his work is ob- vious from the fact that he has been re-engaged within so short a time, and that for one of the most important periods of the concert season. Mr Evans has scored heavily this week again, On Saturday evening lie sang Squire's "Jerry, Joe, or John," and "The Prologue" (Pagliacci), and was enthusiastically encored on each appear- ance. If anything, his rendering of Leoncavallo's immortal song was better on this occasion than a month ago. It was indeed a masterly perform- ance. Mr Griffith Humphreys was again the entertainer, and, as was the case throughout his week's visit, he gave unqualified satisfaction, his numbers being refined and genuinely humorous, as usual. A commendable feature of the instru- mental selections was a trombone solo, "The Vil- lage Blacksmith," by Mr Joseph Lindsey. Never- theless, Mr Lindsey can give a better account of himself on the euphonium. The "Raymond" and "Ruy Bias" overtures, with the "Dance Caresse" and "Dance Americ-aine," and "Aubade" and "Reve du Bal" as eouplcts-SelJenick's pizzi- cati 'roused the customary hearty elleer-ivere amongst, the most popular orchestral pieces. Miss May Currie (contralto) will be the vocalist I and Mr Howard James, the entertainer, on Satur- day evening. Miss Currie will also appear each night next week. -9150 DAMAGE AT A FIRE. An outbreak of fire, which was happily dis- covered1 before it had secured a good h-Id upon the premises. occurred at Ghbertville, one of the largest and fashionable boarding houses on the West Promenade, on Friday. It appears that a stove, which had been ajight for ironing pur- poses in the laundry, was aiiswed to go out dur- ing the afternoon. At about 6.15 a iiialct, was sent down to relight it, Al J. Jordan being also in the room until 6.30. At that time there was nothing wrong. After this everyone was busy with dinner, but about 7.30 Miss C. Jordan detected the smell of fire, and Stsked her sister to go to. the laundry, but when tho latter got to the head of the stairs leading down to the J'(X)!m, she was driven back by the smoke. Hav- ing located the outbreak she rang up the fire bngad. Miss C. Jordan in the meantime went round to the back door of the laundry, and opened it, and So voluminous wero the flames that though she was standing well away, her hair and eyebrows were badly scorched. Visi- tors who were staying in the house, and also those from Rothesay and! Balmoral, and others, quickly arrived on tho scene, and with the aid of garden IKSOS fought the flanver- with such good effect that by tbo tyne the brigiLle ar- rived they were under control. The firemen speedily exfinguithed the outbreak. Members of the brigade were left on duty all night, whilst Mr Owen Jones, an old' member of the Rhyl Brigade, also remained, but with the exception of a slight outbreak frotm a. smouldering team about two hours later, nothing iurther < eeurred. It is surmised that the fire broke out in eoo- sequence of tihe snapping of a rope aitiched to a patent clothes airer. The lines bore a num- ber of light and starched articles, which pre- sumably biow on to the fire, quickly got alight, and started the conflagration. The general ap- ] >ear a nee of the room when an inspection was made, showed tJiaf, the ouibeak would have been extremely serious if it had been left for a little longer. All the woodwork had been badly burnt, and a largo number of windows broken. Lamps and several baskets of clothes which were laying on tho floor, preparatory to being taken up,-stairs, were entirely burnt. The premises are divided info two wings, but the fire took place in while the dinner was served1 in another; honco the delay in discovering the outbreak. It is estimated that tho damage, which is covered by insurance, will amount to jei50.
