BAND AND ENTERTAINMENT. To the Editor of the RHYL ADVEBTISEB. Sin,-As I have had the managerbent of the Pier, and at the present time am in the employ of the Proprietor of the Jardens, I take strong exception to the offensive remarks of Rttepaver in your last issue, on what he please- to call the mismanage. ment of these places of amusement, and I deny the I accuracy of his statement. As a matter of fact, the Pier Company's affairs, during my term of office, were managed in such a manner that a good divi- deud was paid to the sh-ireho uers, and no doubt whatever exists in my mind that if the affairs of the town had been carried on as at that time a fair dividend would have been declared up to now. But with an increased number in the Promenade Band, and our streets turned into a huge musi; hall stage, upon which may be found a variety entertainment, including niggers, performing dogs, mot keys, birds, comic and sentimental singers, organ grindeis, German bands, &c. &c., at any hour of the day, who pay nothing, or next to nothing, to the town for these privileges, how can it be expected that our public buildings can pay a dividend, or keep open their doors ? Aud as to his insinuation that I bad been &ent to the board in the interest of the Gardens, all I can say that the fact alone of the rat-payers placing me there is a sufficient answer, and, su far as the Proprietor of the Gardens is con- cerned, no pressure was brought to bear upon me by that gentleman to influence my vote at the Board when elected my hands were perfectly free, anr he would most certainly condemn any action of mine inconsistent with the interests of the town, the welfare and prosperity of whioh, I can safely may, has always received his warmest support and consideration. As Ritepayer," flatters himself that he knows what would draw the public, I would suggest to him that he should venture into a speculation by at once renting the town hall for the summer months. During :the whole of last season this building (for which we townspeople have paid an enormous sum of m <ney; failed to find a single occupant for enter- tainments, and probably, with the town's present arrangements, the same state of things will exist during the forthcoming season. Ratepayer would lead the public to think that I am anxious to put aside Mr Gilding, (who seems tv be a pet of his), and all other kind of street entertainments. I wish for nothing of the sort. My opinion is, that their Rervices should be so used as not to clash with the arrangements of the entertainments given at our public buildings, to which we should give some protection and support. If "Ratepayer" should feel disposed to educate me, and others, who make it their business to provide amusements (up to the present he has not attempted), I shall be pleased to accept such ilaformation as be can give roe, but not under a "on de plume. Let him and others who wish to discuss this question, and who have the prosperity of the town at heart, be not ashamed of their names. -Your& respectfully, SAMUEL BZEEINOTOK. I
