sioners have decided upon taking a bold step in reference to the market hall-a substantial reduction was resolved upon in the rents of the stalls. The question has been thoroughly discussed, and, having regard to all the bearings of the case, it is not to be at all wondered at that a few of the Commissioners are not even yet convinced that the step agreed upon is a wise one. We need wait long before the question is satisfactorily answered. Our own opinion, together with that of the majority of the ratepayers, is, that the great advantages now offered w'il be the moans of bringing trade to the market hall. There is but one danger now to be feared. Many of the tradespeople who have deserted the market hall, and established themselves in business in different parts of the town, will very probably, be reluctant to change their quarters once more. Should that be so, and the stalls in the market be filled up by new comers, the danger is that the competition will be too great to allow of each and all to do a flourishing trade. It is, however, to be earnestly hoped that no such difficulties will arise, and that the new terms, and, we must say, most reasonable now offered, will prove beneficial to all concerned.
THE POLITICAL CRISIS. THE first great political contest of the session has taken place, and neither of the great political parties can feel satisfaction or plea- sure at the result. The Government escaped defeat by the small majority of 14, and so eight more deserters from the Liberal rarks would have placed the Tories in power. Had such been the case no one could now predict what the consequenceE might be, but for the present the country is relieved from the pre- sence of a great evil. The danger for the present is gone by, but it may return, and that sinister forces and evil influences are at work is known to every one who has perse- verance enough to penetrate beneath the sur- face and gaze on the varied forces which are there at work. It will not then be out of place, and it will certainly be of use to many of our readers, if some short account of the contest be given and an analysis of the divi- sion be made. 011 Monday, February 23rd, Sir STAFFORD Nor.TiicoTK moved in the House of Commons a Vote of Censure on the Government for the action it had taken in Egypt, and on the abscxce of an avowed policy on its part with regard to its future proceedings in the Syudan. The debate on this motion continued during the week, and the division took place on Saturday morning, February 28tb, with the result already stated 590 members took part in the division, B02 voting in favour of the Government, and 288 in favour of the Vote of Censure. The number of those who voted for the Government is made up of 2UO Liberals and 12 moderate Home Rulers. Not a single Tory was to be found amongst them. They, like a flock of sheep, all followed tlici leader, and acrordingly the whole body of the Tories, with the exception of five ab- sentees, were there. Of the 288 then who voted for Sir STAFFORD'S motion 232 were! Tories, 44 Parndlites, and 12 were Liberals Sixteen Literals had paired in favour of the Government with] (i Tories against it, and 3 7 Liberals took no put in the division.! Some were unavoidably absent, and some were absent intentionally, or in other words they declined to support the party by whom they had been elected. I In forming an estimate of the worth of the division as the exponent of the opinion of the j country, the 44 votes given by the Parnellites must be set aside, since they were given without the slightest consideration of the nierits of the case which they supported. They opposed the Government, and so were found in the same lobby with the Tories. They voted in half an hour afterwards", in favour of Mr JOHN MORLEY'S amendment, and so found themselves against the Tories. If the number 44 then be deducted from the number 288, it will leave a majority for the Government of 56. Of the twelve Liberal members who voted with the Opposition, Mr. GOSCHEN, MIl. FORSXER and Mr. J. COWEN deserve special attention. The two first have been Cabinet Ministers in [a Liberal Govern- ment, and for years have been recognised and received and respected as Liberal leaders. Their defection at a time when the Govern- ment was in real peril cannot be viewed otherwise than as a thing to be deplored, and censured, and even punished. NEMESIS may be slow of foot, but she never fails to strike, and indeed in their case she has al- ready struck. The electors of one of the divisions of the city of Edinburgh had accept- ed Mr. GOSCHEN as their candidate at the next election, but after his speech in the debate, and even before his adverse vote, the executive committee tad rejected him. The Bradford Liberal Four -Hundred have also passed a solemn and unanimous vote of con- demnation of the action taken by their mem- ber, Mr. FORSTER. It would be more honest and far better for such men to go over at once to the Tories, and cease from troubling the ranks to which they cling, and yet do not cease to annoy. Mr COWEN, the senior member for Newcastle-on-Tyne, is a sound Radical in domestic policy, but an Imperialist and a Jingoist in foreign policy. His hatred of Russia gives a tinge to the whole of his views on foreign politics, and tends to obscure his otherwise clear vision. He would be a loss to the Liberal party whenever the question of reform, or of:progress, or of economy was brought forward. The electors of Newcastle coxidoned if they did not pardon his active support of the Jingoism of Lord BEACONS- FIELD. But will they do so again ? Nemesis too has overtaken Mr. CREYKE, the Liberal member for York and from the action taken by the Executive council of the Liberal Association on Wednesday evening last, the probabilities are against that gentle- man ever sitting again in ParliamevtIas the representative of a Liberal Constituency. They passed the following resolution That this meeting regrets that Mr. CRRYKE felt it his duty to vote against Mr. GLADSTONE'S Government on the occasion of Sir STAFFORD NORTIICOTE'S Vote of Censure on Saturday morning last, and records its conviction that in taking this coarse Mr CREYKE has acted in opposition to the wishes and opinions of the Liberal party in York." The three FITZ-WILLIAMS as usual were among the deserters and there can be no doubt that their days as members of Parlia- ment are numbered. Their absence will not be regretted,for when the vote of a member can- not be depended upon, it is better to meet him as an open foe than to look upon him as a doubtful friend. Mr ALBERT GREY, the member for a division of Northumberland voted also against the Government. To those who can remember the days of the old Reform Bill of 1832, and to those too who as stu- dents of history are familiar with its stirring incidents,the name of GREY is a venerated one, and one which always draws to it both respect and honour. It has always been associated with the progressive principles of Liberalism, and it must have caused pain to thousands to read the name of ALBERT GREY, the heir presump. tive to the earldom of that ilk among the list of those who voted against the Govern- ment on Saturday last. The Tories then voted in a compact body, and they had the assistance of the Parnellites and of 12 deserters from the Liberal side. What were their expectations ? To defeat the present Government and to set up in its place a Government with Lord SALISBUBY at its head. Such was the programme, and it was nearly realised. But what a change there would have been SALISBURY instead of GLADSTONE A Jingo policy instead of one of comparative peace I A reckless expendit- ure of the public money, and a consequent increase in the amount of the National Debt would have followed as a natural result of a Tory policy. History we are told repeats itself, and so what happened between 1874 and 1880 when Toryism held the roins of State would again have happened. Then again domestic legislation would be retarded, and may bo bungled, at a time when the most anxious care and thought are required. The country has escaped from a great peril and all true lovers of it ought to rejoice and be thankful. But escape from the dangers of the past ought to bring safeguards for the future, and it may :be the,Session of 1885 may close with honour. It may be that with it will cease the existence of the present Par- liament and we can auger nothing but good from a new one elected under an extended Franchise and with a :broader and mere equitable arrangement of seats.
SALTS ATRIR SUMMNRI) At the monthly meeting of the Improve- ment Commissioners, the TOWN SURVEYOR, in his report, promised that the removing of the drift sand off the promenade and the parade roads would be done before Easter," so that, if the promise is faithfully carried out, at the next monthly meeting the SURVEYOR will be able to report the work accomplished, and the visitors who will honour us with their presence on Bank Holiday will have a nice, clean and comfort- able promenade to walk upon. This is as it should be. Though to our unproffes- sional view the task will be a very difficult one to accomplish within the short period of one month, even granting that it will be commenced forthwith. The ex- periment for the improvement of the promenade surface has been promised within the same time, and the materials were stated to be ready at hand, and the site for the operation selected. The public will anxiously await the fulfilment of these promises; and they will feel thankful for having, in the meantime, the carriage drives and the street channels kept clear. At length a majority of the Commis-
The other matters mentioned in our report of the monthly meeting will be found to be of much interest, and the ratepayers cannot but be convinced that their representatives on the Board are ever watchful of their interests. We need only refer to the steps taken in reference to the gas supply of the town as evidence of this. There is a thoroughly business-like ring in the negotiations now going on with the Gaa Company and inasmuch as the Directors of the Company will meet in the interval between row and the next meeting of the general Board, it may be anticipated that at their meeting on the 7th of April the Com- missioners will have some important communications to make, based on the replies of the directors to the interrogatories ad- dressed to them by the TOWN CLERK. ♦
We venture to remark upon one other I matter which we feel sure will not escape the notice of the readers of our report of the meeting even though we rULl the risk of causing offence to some, and of being charged with viewing the question in a party spirit. We refer to the election of a successor to Dr. GIRDLESTONE, the Chairman of the Board, to represent the Board and the town of Rhyl on the Board of Governors of the North Wales College. As to the qualifications of the two gentlemen nominated for the office, our readers them- selves can be judges. They are both well known. But there was something in the mode of procedure of the election which to those who were eye aIli ear witnesses of the transaction was very strikingly objectionable. Mr P. MOSTYN WILLIAMS, is wellknown to take an absorbing interest in the question of education, and especially in the question of the colleges, and it was only natural that he should be expected to say something on the matter. But there appeared to have been a pre-arranged resolve to forestall him. So anxious was Mr PARRY to nominate his candidate that he could not even wait until the CHAIRMAN'S resignation had been ac- cepted; and he thus transgressed not only the rules of etiquette, but also one of the essential rules of procedure in every public body. It was an, unintentional no doubt, insult to the CHAIRMAN. This unfortunate circumstance having been effectually atoned for by means of a motion proposed by Mr MOSTYN WILLIAMS and seconded by Mr TAYLOR, Mr PARRY again rose in pre- cipitate haste, and was encouraged to do so by a nudge in the arm from the gentleman who sat next to him, on his right. But again the attempt failed, and he was again ruled out of order. Mr WILLIAMS then pro- posed Mr WYNNE to fill the vacancy, and convincingly proved that the gentleman he proposed was in every essential well qualified for the post. The proposition was duly seconded^by Mr JAMES TAYLOR. Once more Mr PARRY was on his feet, and proposed Mr ABSALOM HUMPHREYS for the honour. This was seconded by the CHAIRMAN. The result was that two gentlemen were placed un- necessarily in opposition to each other. Had the nominator or the seconder of the second gentleman been able to prove that Mr HUMPHREYS was in any way better suited for the post, nothing could bo said against it, but in the absence of any such reason, the proceeding we venture to say, was a display of exceedingly bad taste. Mr WYNNE C, very naturally felt the undesirable position he was placed in, and stated he would not allow his name to be put to the vote against another member of the Board. Mr HUM- PHREYS was silent, and so were his sup- porters, with the exception of Mr R. D. ROBERTS, who in fatherly style blamed the Board 10r pressing upon Mr WYNNE to accept the Governorship against his will. Of course it never'struck Mr ROBERTS that it would be but bare courtesy ontthe part of Mr HUMPHREYS, or rather his nominator ani seconder, to withdraw his candidature, seeing that an equally good, and even far better qualified gentleman had been proposed, and was willing to act on condition that there should be no division of the Boai d on the question. These are the facts of the case, and our readers will no doubt draw their cwn conclusions from them. We congratu- late Mr PARRY and Mr HUMPHREYS on this their first p"actical demonstration of any interest in the cause of higher education in Wales. At the next meeting of the Board they will have another opportunity of doing the same thing by supporting Mr MOSTYN WILLIAMS' motion in reference to the question of intermediate education in Wales.
ST. ASAPH PETTY"SESSIONS. MONDAY.—Before Major Birch, Mr E. Morgan, and Captain Howard. ASSAULT. Edward Evans, was charged with assaulting Robert Roberts. The prosecutor did not appear. Mr Alun Lloyd defended. This defendant was one of those who took part (in the Coldstream Guards) at Tel-el-Kebir. As the prosecutor did not appear, and it appeared some sort of a settlement had been arrived at Mr Lloyd asked that the case be dis- misserl.—Major Birch said that he always set his face against having cases settled out of Court. In this case it seems that the mother of the prosecutor had got out a warrant, but the defendant surren- dered without the warrant being executed.—Mr Lloyd, as the Bench were not willing to dismiss the case, pointed out that as the warrant had not been executed and the man had appeared, he could not be again bound over to appear. The case was dismissed.—Major Birch said his views of the case was the same as before, but one of the justices felt inclined to temper justice with mercy, as tlure was only one magistrate at the previous Court. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY. The same defendant was charged with being drunk and disorderly, and pleaded guilty. Fmed 17s. including costs.—Edward Browne was charged with drunkenness, but did not appear and a war- rant was issued. BREACHES OF THE EDUCATION ACT. Patrick Collins was charged with neglecting to sond his child regularly to school. Thj child had at tended 14 times out of 10.) possible attendances Fined Is. and 2s. costs.—Robert Roberts was similarly charged and fined Is. and 2s. costs.— John Gallagher was charged with the same offence, but the case was dismissed. SURKTIES OF THE PEACE. Jesse Jones and John Deed were charged with making a noise in the street. Both defendants were bound over to keep the peace in thb sums of £ 2 for three months, and to pay the costs. CONIES NOT GAME. Ellis Ilavies and Robert Jon a (defended by Mr Aluu Lloyd) were charged with trespassing on land in the occupation of William Storey.

THE EXPERIMENT ON THE PROMENADE. Mr Keatinge asked when it was intended to carry out the proposed experiment on the promen- ade. The Surveyor said he had had an interview with Mr William Williams the cement had been lade. obtained, aod a portion of the promenade had been selected for making the experiment upon but it could not be done during the present unsettled weather. The work, however, would be done before Easter. Mr William Williams said he was entitled to make a personal explanation in regard to this matter. He had read in one of the Rhyl papers that it had been stated at one of the meetings of the Board that he was to blame for the delay in carrying out this matter. He denied that em- phatically. From the commencement he had done what was expected from him. He had taken all (the preparatory steps, and was therefore entitled to be exonerated from all blame for any delay. The Surveyor said the question was whether the Board depended upon him or upon Mr Williams the reponsibility could not be a divided one. After some further conversation the Surveyor said he understood his position in reference to the matter now, and would without delay iiarry out the instructions of the Board. Mr Wynne suggested that Mr Williams should select a site in front of the town hall, near the bank, for making the experiment. Mr William Williams said he had selected a portion of the new promenade. The Surveyor had thought of trying it on the old promenade, but he preferred the new, where the work which would be done could remain, never to be removed. How- ever, he would have NO objection to trying the experiment anywheie in the town. The matter was then dropped. THE NEW COCOA HOUSE. At a meeting of the road committee, on the 7th ult., amended plans of the new cocoa house now being built for Miss Ruth Evans, were considered. They showed that a yard belonging to an adjoin- ing house, purchased by Miss Evans, was to be left open. After some discussion it was recom- mended that the amended plans be approved by the Board.—Confirmed. THE MARINE DRIVE. At the same meeting of the committee, it was reported that Messrs Goulding and Mitchell, solicitors to the promoters of the new marine drive, had returned the draft agreement as amended in respect of those particulars recommended by the con,nittee. The committee recommendea that the plans be now approved, on payment of Y,100 deposit towards cost of maintenance, and subject to the approval of the commissioners. At a meeting of the same committee held on the 26th ult., it was further recommended that Mr Winby be required to pay a deposit of £ 500 into the North and South Wales Bank, in the joint names of himself and the commissioners—that sum being the estimated cost of the work-to be drawn upon en the certificate of the Town Surveyor as the work proceeded also that a sum of £100 be forfeited, in case of the work not being carried out, the said sum to be carried to the credit of the district rate account. The Town Clerk said he had not heard anything further from the solicitors named The amended agreement had been returned to them. Mr Keatinge asked whether there was a pre- cedent for parties being asked to deposit £100 as guarantee for maintenance. Tho Town Clerk said there was a precedent for it. Mr Wynne asked whether those conditions were to be considered as final, if the Board confirmed tho minutes. The Town Clerk: Subject to a right of further revision and alterations by the commissioners, as stated in the minutes of the committee for the ] 7 th. In reply to Mr Keatinge the Clerk stated that no reply had been received from the solicitors as to the desposit of the £ 500 J probably they were consulting with the solicitors of the Land Company. But as to the £ 100 towards maintenance they were willing to agree t) that. Mr Keatinge proposed, and Mr Henry Parry seconded an amendment to the confirmation of the minutes-viz., that the whole minutes be suspended until the whole arrangement be completed But after a few words from Mr Taylor, the amend- ment was withdrawn, and the minutes were con. firmed. DRIFT SAND. On the recommendation of the road committee, it was resolved that the Surveyor LE instructed to clear the sand on the parade roads sufficiently to keep the carriage way clear, and the channels for carrying away water. A PALTRY DISPUTE. At the meeting of the road committee on the 26th ult., the members were engaged in considering an objection to a sum of 48 4d., part of apportion- ment of cost of crossing work done. The com- mittee failed to see their way clear to alter the apportionment. Mr Parry, of Queen Street, appeared in support of the objection on behalf of his landlord. The committee also recommended that payment of all the apportionment accounts be pressed for.—Confirmed. MR H*MMOND'S ACCOUNT.—A SETTLEMENT. At the above-mentioned meeting of the road committee a letter was read from Mr Edward Roberts, solicitor, dated February Gth., and also a copy of the Clerk's letter in reply, in reference to the dispute with Mr Hammond.—The Clerk now said it would be satisfactory to all to know that the dispute had been arranged, Mr Hammond having accepted the terms offered by the commissioners. THE SUMMER BAND, 1885. At a meeting of the town ball, band, &c, committee, on the 16th ult., the resolution passed by the Board at the last monthly meeting was under consideration namely that an interview be sought with the Pier Company and the owner of the Winter Gardens, Mr Perks and Mr Wynne were present on behalf of the Pier Company and Mr S. Berrington on behalf of the proprietor of the Gardens. After some discussion the meeting was adjourned, until the 17th., when Mr Wynne and Mr Berrington again met the committee. At this meeting it was resolved to advertise in the Era," for a band of 18 in June and September, and 24 in July, in order to ascertain the cost, so that the Pier Company and the owner of the Gardens might be enabled to see whether they could advantageously agree to an amalgamation and after tenders had been received a special meeting of the Board to be called to consider the question.—Confirmed.- The Town Clerk announced that he had already received several tenders with numerous testi- monials. THE MARKET HALL STALLS.—SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION. At the meeting of the town hall, &c., committee, on the 16th ult, Mr Henry Parry's resolution, in reference to the market stalls, referred to them from the last monthly meeting, was iinler con- sideration. The committee resolved upon the following recommendation :-that a reduction of 15 per cent, be made in the rental, the 15 per cent, discount to be discontinued; that is, that three quarters of the present aunnal reutal be charged frem the 1st of May to the 1st of November, and one-fourth for the remainder of the year.—The Clerk explained that that would mean that a 112 stall be let during the summer months for SO, and during the winter months, C3.-The committee further recommended that the corn market stalls be rented at 5s a year, and that the rental of Messrs Dew and Son's office be reduced from 122 to 120 per annum. Mr Thomas Ellis, chairman of the committee, moved the confirmation of the minutes. He re- marked that this matter had been before the Board many times, and there were many various opinions in regard to it. At length the committee had come to the arrangement now presented to the Board. He fell in with the views of the committee, though he was sorry they could not see their way clear to recommend a further reduction in the rents. He believed if the rents were made one-fourth what they were at present, they would draw more money from the market than they were doing now, although a statement presented to the Board some time ago shewed that they made a profit of 9 per cent. In his belief if they reduced the rents they would secure tenants all the year round. Mr Trehearn seconded the confirmation of the minutes. Mr Henry Parry proposed an amendment, that the rent of the stalls be reduced 30 per cent. A reduction of 15 per ce "t and to discontinue the 15 per cent discount would not make but a alteration. People had always complained of tht high rental, and so far back as ten years ago a respectable tradesman had left the market, pur- chased a house and made a shop of it, on that account. He advocated a clean sweep so that they might make a good impression (laughter.) In reply to Mr Berrington, the Town Clerk stated that the 9 per cent profit had been arrived at after taking into account all the working expenditure. In reply to Mr Keatinge, the Clerk stated that the receipts and expenditure taken as the basis of t 1e calculation did not include the town hall. Mr W. Williams asked whether the committee could not see their way clear to continue the 15 per cent discount. If they took away that discount it would really make no difference at all in the rental. They ought to encourage those tenants who paid their rents regularly and in the proper time. He favoured the continuing of 15 per cent. discount, or some discount at any rate. Mr James Davies thought the stalls ought to be rented for the year, and on no other conditions. He proposed an amendment that the stalls be let from May to May only at a reduction of 25 per cent, with 5 per cent discount for prompt pay- ment. Mr Frimston suggested a reduction of 20 per cent with 5 per cent discount. Mr Gunner seconded Mr James Davies's amend- ment. In reply to Mr Wynne the Town Clerk said tho committee did not recommend a reduction of 15 per cent. for the short lettings, only from those for the year. Mr Wynne said he did not take much notice of the clamour made from time to time about high rents. Could any place in the town be got cheaper, taking everything into account, than the market stalls at the present rental ? The statement as to the 9 per cent profit wag ridiculous and ficiitious, for it was based on the cost of the alterations to the town and market hall, and not on the original cost of the building and the land had not been taken into calculation at all. He proposed as an amendment that the minutes of tbø committee be adopted, but that 5 per cent discou be allowed for prompt settlement to annual tenanto only. Mr Keatinge seconded Mr Wynne's amendment. After some fuither discussion, Messrs H. Parry and W. Williams withdrew their amendments. Mr Ellis, alluding to Mr Wynne's remarks, said the interest of 9 per cent Has cal- culated not upon the repairs, but on the town aad market hall as they now stood. The land had not been taken into the calculation, because it was given a present to the town, and did not cost them anything. The Board then decided on Mr Wynne's amend- ment, when 3 voted for, and 13 against. Mr James Davies's amendment was then put and carried, and afterwards confirmed as a substantive motion. Mr Gunner suggested that the reduction de- cided upon should be advertised in the local papers, but the suggestion was not acted upon. A LAMP OUTSIDE THE TOWN HALL ENTRANCE. It having been represented to "the town hal committee that considerable inconvenience wa experienced owing to the darkness at the Wate Street entrance to the town hall, it was recom mended that an offer by the gas company to plac a bracket Victoria lamp there, at a cost of £4 15s. be accepted, and that the words Town hall b written in coloured letters on two sides of the lamp -Confirmed. THE CORN MARKET. Mr James Davies called attention to this matter and complained of the farmers congregating on the parapet in Bodfor Street to the great inconvenience of pedestrians.—Mr W. Williams expressed similar views.—Mr Wynne suggested that the farmers be invited to an interview with the committee the Board could by that means hear what they had to say on the question of the corn market —Ths matter was referred to the committee. THE GAS SUPPLY. «. A meeting of the special committee was held on the 20th ult. A letter prepared by the Clerk to be sent to the directors of the Gas Company was read and approved. The letter embodied the several suggestions announced at the last monthly meeting. They were (1) The quality of gas, it being con- sidered inferior in quality — in illuminating power and parity. The commissioners suggested that it should be tested by some independent and disinterested gas engineer. (2) The price of gas, especially considering that for several years the company had been paying a dividend of 10 per cent. The commissioners asked to be furnished with some data to enable them to judge for them- selves as to this question. This the commissioners had power to enforce, and they therefore hoped that the companp would not withhold such information. (8) The breaking up of streets. The commissioners were convinced that the company had no legal right to break up streets but they had no desiro to embarrass the company. At the same time they wished it to be understood that the streets should be properly reinstated; ani the letter suggested that the gas company should pay all annual sum to be agreed upon towards the cost of repairing the streets. (4) The purchase of the gas works. The commissioners having power to do this or to erect a works of their own, they wished to be infoimed whether the company would be disposed to SOIL the concern iupposing that the town commissioners were disposed to purchase. An early reply to the letter was asked for.—The Clerk stated that Mr Miles R. Partington, secretary to the company, had acknowledged the receipt of the letter, and promising that it should be laid before a meeting of the directors of the company on the 6th inst. Mr Clews remarked that the letter was a very important and interestiug communication, and hoped that beneficial arrangements to the town would result from it. The minutes of the committee were then con- firmed. STREET WATERING. At the meeting of the special committee, on tho 20th ult., the various schemes for the watering of the streets with sea water, which had been sub- mitted by the surveyor, were again cansidered. The meeting was again adjourned, the Clerk being directed to ascertain from the Pier company whether the pipes used in connection with the Pier Baths could be utilized for street watering pur- poses. SANITARY MATTERS. At the meeting of the Sewerage and Sanitary Committee on the 23rd nIt., it was resolved that 14 days notice be given to the owners of property in Royal Oak Square and South Kinmel street to make alterations in the sanitary arrangements. A sum of £-1 ISs was recommended to be included in the estimates for the ensuing year, for erecting a temporary shed for storing tools, &c-, in the manure field.—The Surveyor was instructed to report on the drainage works upon which the un- expended loan of £1ï7 9s 8d could be expended-— Confirmed. FINANCE. The Board, on the recommendation of the Finance Committee, confirmed an arrangement for payment, in the form of a salary to the treasurer, a sum due as interest to the Bank on overdrawn accounts, the Auditor disallowing the payment of interest in the ordinary way. THE CHAIRMAN AND THE GOVERNORSHIP OF THB NORTH WALES E. ELECTION OF GOVERNOR. A letter was read from Dr Girdlestone (chairman of the Board) rsig-nin his seat on the Board of Governors of the North Wales University College to which he had been elected by the Board, assign- ing as a reason his inability to attend to the duties of the office. Mr P. Mostyn Williams said he regretted that Dr Girdlestone had felt obliged to resign and inas- much as he seemed to have quite made up his mind, it was useless to ask him to continue in office. The doctor, although he had been unable to attend the meetings of that body, had done good service whilo in office. He was the organiser and chairman of the local committee which had arranged the series of lectures in Rhyl by the Principal of the College. He (Mr Williams) would propose that a vote of thanks be passed to Dr Girdlestone for the interest he had taken in the matter, and that the Board accept his resignation with regret. Mr Taylor seconded the proposition, which was carried unanimously. Dr Girdlestone returned thanks. Mr Hemy Parry, who had risen to propose a successor to Dr Girdlestone before that gentleman's resignation had been accepted by the Board, and
