TO THE RATEPAYERS AND ELECTORS OF RHYL. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, —Having bepn invited to offer myself for election as one of the Rhyl Improvement Commissioners, I have determined to do so; and I hope you will support me with your votes and interest. Although I may not be well acquainted with you personally, I have no doubt some of the members of my family hare beeu well known to you, especially my uncle, the late Dr Lloyd, of Ty'n Rhyl, who was for some time a Commissioner. Should you honour me with your support, it shall be my care to second all oeasures which may tend to the prosperity of the town of Rhyl; and especially those measures which may tend t awards the reduction of the rates, and the encouragement of trade in Rhyl by affording improved accom- modation and facilities for visitors as well as for re.-iaents. I am, Ladies and Gentlemen, yours faithfully, LLEWELYN LLOYD, Ty'n Rhyl, Rhyl, March 26th 1885. ELECTION OF COMMISSIONERS. TO THE RATEPAYERS OF THE DISTRICT OF RHYL. I" ADIES AND GENTLEMEN,—My term of J office having expired I a^tm solicit your support at the forthcoming election. During the six years I have been a member of this Board, I have endeavoured to the best of my ability to promote all measures conducive to the prosperity of the town. With regard to tie future, taking the Mersey Tunnel and other Railway matters into consider- ation, Rbyl is, iu my opinion, destined in the near future to become a large residential distiict. And during the ccu 83 of its development many matters of importance will necessarily occupy the attention of the Improvement Commissioners. If I have the honour of being again elected, I will give all matters brought before the BO"Jd my most serious consideration,and whilst promoting all necessary improvements will endeavour to study economy so that the present district rate may in a short time be reduced. As the town has increased so much in size I shall be unable to make a housj to house c<"nv'tss, but I trust that will not prevent r..y receiving your support and intere-t on the niuth of April next,—I am, Ladies and Gentlemen, your obedient, servant, EDWARD W.

THE PUBLIC are invited to take shares in a I Company to be formed for the purchase of the above gardens, the arrangement to rest on the above gardens, the arrangement to rest on the following basis :—The price for the gardens to be I £ 17;000, divided into 170 shares of £100 each, with a proportionate amount added on account of Chat- tels, the further price of which will be £ 500. Any capital expenditure however which may be incurred subsequently to this date (April 4th), will be add- ed to the above amount. Including the proportion for Chattels therefore, the present price of the shares will be X102 18s lOd. each.

THE FORTHCOMING ELECTION OF COMMISSIONERS. Before another issue will reach the hands of our readers, the ratepayers of Rhyl will have decided upon seven "fit and proper per. sons to represent them on the council which governs the town. There are twelve candidates for this honour, seven of whom are tried men and tiue," who retire by rotation, and offer themselves for re-election, The total number of retiring members is ten, but Mr CLEWS, Dr WOLSTENHOLME and Mr U. D. ROBERTS, do not again seek the suffrages of the electors. Of the first, we may say in passing that during the short time he has been a commissioner, his duties were faithfully attended to the second, as a non-resident suffered under disadvantages, and the town did not benefit much by his undoubted ability and ex- perience without MWROG'S venerable presence the board-room will seem strange, for some time to come, to its frequenters. Turning now to those gentlemen who at the end of their three years of office again seek the confidence of the electors, each and every one of them are worthy of the consider- ation of the ratepayers. It behoves the electors therefore to review their past actions and the way they have discharged the trust reposed in them in 1882. Mr HUMPHEKTS was not elected then, it is true, but by the votes of the commis- sioners on a resolution to fill a vacancy, and we believe that his conduct has justified that vote. In Mr W. WILLIAMS the constitu ency had a practical man on the board,though speaking for ourselves, we cannot approve of that love of detail that is so characteristic of him. It is detrimental to the business of the board to reopen work, which is clearly the duty of committees, at the general meeting. But still members like Mr W. WILLIAMS find difficulty in attending com- mittee meetings, and therefore take the opportunity to discuss questions at length when reported to the board. Mr FKIMSTON is a young man who rapidly improves as a representative, and we can with confidence endorse his published address. l Mr KEATINGE also is a valuable man, and his decision on any question is never given without mature consideration. And the same may be said of Mr JOSEPH WILLIAMS, whose election three years ago cannot be regretted by anyone. It is hardly necessary to say that Mr JOHN ROBERTS, Queen street, deserves re-election. During the very many years of his service the ratepayers have had ample opportunities of judging his many ax- cellent qualities. The next gentleman is Mr JAMES TAYLOR, and the fact that he headed the poll in 1882 proves how greatly he is esteemsd by his fellow-townsmen. And indeed this year again he ought to receive the I same mark of approbation. Whatever individual quaime* tne ocnor vQ,ud;a,,+. 1OA"'7 possess, all the essentials of a good com- missioner are embodied in Mr TAYLOB. As a scholar, a financier, and experienced princi- pal authority he is ce taiuly foremost. Re- garding the new candidates perhaps some of our fellow electors may think that an infusion of new blood would prove beneficial. Five gentlemen are nominated and whatever the merits of the old commissioners may be, perhaps on a trial some of the new candidates may prove quite as useful, and it is for the ratepayers to make their choice. The five gentlemen referred to are Mr LLEWELYN LLOYD Tyn'-Rhyl, Mr JOHN H. ELLIS, Wine Merchant, Dr SUMMERHILL, Mr GEORGE TAVERNER, and the REV. E. LLOYD JONES. Addresses have been issued by the first four gentlemen, and we commend them to the notice of our readers. It may be necessary perhaps to explain the position in which Mr LLOYD JONES stands. From what was mentioned to us by a member of a committee of the inhabitants of Vale Road it would appear that the ratepayers of that end of the town considered the Rev. gentleman capable of representing their interests on the board. As stated a committee was form- ed and a requisition was sent to Mr LLEWELYN LLOYD and the Rev. LLOYD JONES. The former consented to stand unconditionally, and Mr JONES declared that he would with pleasure become a commissioner should that be the wish of the ratepayers, but he would not canvas nor in any way exert him- self to secure election. We can well under- stand this determination on the part of Mr JONES, and so can those of our readers who know the delicate state of the Rev. gentle- man's health. A description of the voting paper would not be out of place here. On the top of a printed form is a space for the name an d address of the voter with his number on the j ratebook on the left side, and for number of votes as owner and as occupier on the right. The names of the candidates and their ad dresses are printed alphabetically and num- bered, and opposite each name is a blank, wherein the voter places a cross against each of those whom he desires to support and then he appends his signature at the foot of the voting paper.
REVIEW OF THE PAST SESSIONl THE three Estates of the Realm-Qtieen, Lords, and Commons, are all now enjoying a temporary respite from the duties which are due from each to the State. The QUEEN is I now on the Continent, and the two Houses of Parliament have adjourned for the Easter Holidays. The session has not been a long one, for Parliament only re-assembled on February 19th, nevertheless it has been varied by the exhibition of a considerable amount of acrimony and bitterness on the part of a few rash, headstrong, and ignorant I members of the Opposition and of the Irish Nationalist Party. Ministers have been pes- tered and badgered with questions innumer- able on every subject, but most of all on the events that were transpiring in the Soudan and in Central Asia, To have given cate- gorical answers to a great many of these questions would have been detrimental to the interests of the State, and Ministers are to be commended for having in a good many cases maintained a discreet and praiseworthy reti- cence. The leaders of the Opposition have been as discreet in this matter as the Minis- ters themselves, and the action taken by Lord SALISBURY in the House of Lords, and that taken by Sir STAFFORD NORTHOOTB in the House of Commons is as laudable as that of their followers of the ASHMEAD BARTLBTT type is censurable. Two direct attacks, how- ever, have been made on the Government by the united and compact Tory party, and both have ended in defeat. The first was a Vote of Censure on the Administration for its ac- tion in Egypt, and it was brought forward in both Houses of Parliament. It was carried in the Lords by the large majority of 121, and was rejected in the Commons by the small majority of 14. Toryism is dominant and predominant in the Lords, and therefore no wonder was felt in the country at the result of the division. Nor was there either any effect produced by it. Liberals laughed at it, and Tories said nothing about it; and so the House of Lords talked and voted to no purpose. The small majority, however, in the House of Commons affords a serious subject for reflection. It was con- sidered, and rightly too, that a Ministry which professed to have a normal majority of 120, must have either acted wrongly or be much misunderstood when it was so near a defeat, that a change of 8 votes would have caused its dissolution. But an explanation, which is to some extent satisfactory, is not wanting, and has not to be sought for either deeply or far. Nearly 40 of the Parnellites voted against the Government, on no other recognizable principle than this, viz., that they were voting against the Government. Strike out this factor, and then the Govern- ment does not present so mean an appearance. Then, again, there were deserters from the Liberal side, and this is a real misfortune. But there is balm in Gilead, and there is a surcease from grieving even in this matter, and it comes from a very simple reflection. It is the essence of Liberalism that within its ranks should be found men of various opin- ions, d fferent ways of thought, and of op- posing impulses. This, however, is a com mon doctrine held by all that in the common wish for progress there is a common bond, which keeps those varied thinke s in the Liberal fold. The Government passed safely through the ordeal, but it had a narrow es- cape, and as the Phoenix is fabled to rise again from its own ashes, so the Ministry seems to have gathered strength from its very weaknesses. The next trial of strength made by the Opposition waa on the Egyptian Convention, and the attack in this case was only brought in the Com- mons. The Tory leaders iu the House of Lords wisely refrained from showing fight on this subject, and in the Commons they were defeated by a majority of 40. The position of the Government is now stronger than it has been for some time, while that of the Opposition, from internal dissensions is daily becoming weaker. This statement can be substantiated. Parliament had to be met by the Govern. ment in February under the dark shadow of reverses in the Soudau, and under the still darker shadow of General GORDON'S death. The fall of Khartoum and the death of GORDON had given a shock to society which acted and re-acted upon almost every individ- ual member of it. The cry of Too late was heard from John O'Groats to Land's End, and the lugubrious phrase received all kinds of explanations from the Tory, one which made the Govern- ment the direct cause of his death, to that in which treachery and accident were the principal factors. The debite on the Vote of Censure and the mass of inform- ation which has been subsequently received have shed a flood of light on these sad events, and have exalpated the Government from the serious charges which the flush ot anger, and of resentment at the reception of the sad news, had not failed to produce. The splen- did action, too, of the British forces in the Soudan in their northward march with a view to concentration has cast a favourable reflection on Her MAJESTY'S Advisers. Not without an element of good, too, as far as the Government is concerned, is the aggressive action of Russia in Central Aaia. Afghanistan lies between British India and that portion of Asia over which Russia claims to hold sway. The AMEER, or Sovereign of that country, is our friend, and only on Tues- day last met the Viceroy of India as his guest. There are many of our readers who will remember the indignant words of Mr GLADSTONE when in Rhyl in 1878, he elo- quently condemned the action taken by Lord BEACONSFIELD'S Government in alienating that country from us by its adverse and un- kind treatment of SHERE ALi, the then AMEER of Affghanistan. But with the ad- vent of a Liberal Government in 1880, came a different treatment of that country, and so now through the courteous and politic action of Lord RIPON as VICEROY of India, we have Affghanistan not as an enemy, but as a firm ally. Russia is attempting to get possession of the debutable and disputable frontier land known as the Turkistan-Affghan frontier, and that attempt has been met by Her MAJESTY'S Government with a firm resistance. We have a strong belief that the efforts of diplomacy will be powerful enough to avert the dread calamity of war. The firm front displayed by the Government backed up as it has been by an unanimous expression of opinion on the part of the press, and of all sections of politicians will undoubtedly exer- cise an important influence, and will mater- ially strengthen the hands of diplomacy. A favourable issue to such efforts 11 is a con- summation devoutly to be wished for." In matters of domestic legislation the session so far has not been without its fruits. The Redistribution Bill which is a measure of gigantic import has made considerable progress and will now be soon registered in the Statute Book. That unity of action on the part of Government and on the part of the leaders of the Opposition which initiated the Bill has been maintained during its pass- age so far through Parliament-it may perhaps to the annoyance of a few ardent spirits, both Whig and Tory-but undoubted- ly to the good of the country in general and to the comfort of Parliament in particular. These is howevar one measure which nearly every Welshman and every well-wisher of Wales hopes to see soon introduced and to become a portion of the law of the land, and that is the Intermediate Education Bill Wales. That measure has been mentic specially in two speeches from the Thr but as yet it has not been laid before Par ment, so that with the exception of framers, no one is acquainted with its visions. The immediate future is pregt with important events, and we know what a day or even an hour may bring fo Our confidence in the great man who pres. over the affairs of this realm is unbrok nor has our faith in him ever faltered. the justice of our cause, in the bravery our troops, aud in the wisdom of our le lators, the nation,however anxious it may may still faithfully trust.
