IMMORALITY IN RHYL. To the Editor of the RHYL ADVEBTISER. Srn,-A short time ago I saw in your paper a letter calling attention to the nuisance caused by a lot of loungers who were almost invariably stand- ing in groups on the corners of our sheets. Since that letter appeared the nuisance has visibly dimin- ished much to the gratification of all respectable people since, as a rule, the language made use of by those groups was not always of the choicest kind. Allow me a short space in your columns to call attention to a still more odious nuisance which is getting prevalent in our streets and on the prom- enade, and which I trust the police will do their best, and with firmness, to at once stamp out. I allude to the gross solicitations of women as defic- ient in virtue as they are wanting in modesty. Every sane person is doubtlessly prepared to admit that drunkeness is an evil which ought to be dim- inished, and calls for our efforts in that direction but we have in our town a vice more destructive in its effects upon the rising generation, which should be vigourously dealt with. For a man who has been close at business and indoors the whole day, a stroll on the promenade on a fine night is pleasant, and indeed beneficial, where he can, if he feels so inclined, sit on one of the benches and enjoy a smoke. But he does so now at the risk of being pounced upon by women, who are so far steeped in sin and immorality as to "solicit" and make improper overtures. Yes, even to young lads. Such a state of things is most deplorable in our sea- port and garrison towns. But it is enough to make one shudder to find that such a thing exists in a town like Rhyl. Yet unfortunately it does exist and the good name of our town demands the earn- ent attention of the police to stamp out the infamy. Not only on the streetY and promenade have these women become a pest, but their hauuts are sources of intolerable nuisance in the neighbourhood in which they exist. I hear it is the ilitentioii of the inhabitants of a certain district to lay the matter before the Chief Constable. I believe as a body of men our police are ever ready to lend an eat. to any complaint, and I feel sure the abomination com- plained of in these lines will get their attention. -Yours &c., SIGMA.
