The attendance numbered about 100, over whom the Hon. Mrs Laurence Brodrick preeided. Letters of apology ior non-attendance were read from Lady Rad. cjille, Mr Tomlinson and Mr Foulkes-Robet-ts. The hon. treasurer (Mrs George Osborn) said that Subscriptions had been received to the amount of £31 3s 3d which included a collection of £1 as 9d made at the last annual meeting, and Mrs Brodrick, who said the statement was very satisfactory, called upon Mr Francis Nunn to move the adoption of the report. In doing so Mr Nunn congratulated the members upon the character of the report and the lo. cal workers upon the success of their efforts. At the name time he pointed out that the subscription were not up to the toLal one would expect -for a town like Colwyn Bay. Mr Brock seconded and the motion, which was car- ried unanimously. Mr Norton moved the re-election of the officers en bloc, and Mrs Gamble seconded, the motion being unanimously agreed to. The president acknowledged her reappointment, and she was very pleased to be present on that occasion, more particularly because she had been unaMe tc at- tend the previous annual meeting -it the society. She agreed with Mr Nunn that subscriptions ought to in- crease considerably for such a plam as Oolwyn Bay, for even if there were no real need of the Society's work in this district, they should remember that there were other places not so fortunately situated. oUe, therefore, appealed to an those who did not sub- scribe regularly to the Society to do so. however small the amount. Mr J. C. Teasdale, from the Society's Central Office, then delivered a most interesting address on Sije work of th* Society. In pasiing nc, complimented Mrs Nunn and Mrs Jsburn an their effort; of. half Gf the Society in the district. He paid great tribute to the late Benjamin Waugh, the founder of the society, and relateo an incident, which happened some time before his leath, as an instance of his sound integrity. He said that white the late Mr Waugh was spending a short hoitday in Devonshire, he happened to call in a small farmer's cottage, where he nokj"d a pair of vases on t mantel piece. He pur- chased the articles for £4. Shortly afterwards, while at home, a friend called upon hhu who better knew the intrinsic value of the vases and offered £40 for them. The bargain w&- struck, and such was the (character of the man ("aid the speaker) that he im- mediately afterwards pouted the balance of the pur- chase money to the farmer'i wilt in De-ton (applause.) Such he said was the man who founded the Society, and whose name would remain amongst the foremost of great men. Dealing with local work, he said that from a report he had received, 46 cases had been dealt with in Colwyn Bay and district during the year, and out of that number, there was only one pro. secution, the parents being sentenced to three montw imprisonment. He urged the audience to remember, however, that even if there were not a single case in Oolwyn Bay, they should help to carry on the work in the large centres of population. Mrs Thos. Lloyd proposed a vote of thanics to Mr Teasdale, which was seconded by Mrs Lumley, and on the motion of Mrs Nunn seconded by Mrs Reynolds. th&nks were also accorded to the Hon. Mrs Brodrick for presiding.
