ENGLAND AND RUSSIA. AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE. BOUNDARY TO BE SETTLED. In the House of Lords on Monday Lord Gran- ville, at the instance of Lord Salisbury, made a statement relative to the arrangement with the Russian Government on the subject of the Afghan frontier, corresponding with that of the Prinifi Minister in the Commons. He added that the terms of reference had not yet been absolutely deter- mined on, and under the circumstances he thought it undesirable to enter into details. In the Commons Mr. Gladstone stated, with refer- ence to the correspondence with Russia, that the im- pediments which had presented themselves to the prosecution of a friendly correspondence appeared to have been removed. The two Governments had agreed together to provide the means that might be necessary for the settlement of the differences a i,jn between them out of the engagement at Ak Tepe; the British Government agreeing with the Russian that they did not desire to see gallant officers on either side put on their trial. For this pilI pose they were willing to refer to the Sovereign of a friendly State any differences that might have been found to exist between the two Governments as to the interpretation of the Agreement of the 16th of March, with a view to the settlement of the matter in a mode consistent with the honour of botli ides, ard they trusted that no difficulty was likely to arise. The two Governments were prepared, under these circumstances, to resume at once their communications in London on the main points of the line of delimitation of the Afghan frontier; and the details of that line would be examined and traced on the spot by the commis- sion appointed for that purpose in conformity with the conditions agreed upon. These negotiations would be very much facilitated, as regarded her Majesty's Government, by the more full and exact knowledge which, since the meeting at Rawul Pindi, they possessed of the views of the Ameer on the fron- tier. The Russian Government had also expressed their willingness to consider the question of the re- moval of the Russian outposts when the Commis- sioners met, which, he hoped, would be on an early day. RECALL OF SIR PETER LUMSDEN. In th House of Commons, on Tuesday, Mr. Glad- stone arnii unced that, consequent on the decision to carry on in London the negotiations for the de1 imi- tation of the Afghan frontier, General Sir Peter Lumsden had been informed that it was desirable that both he and Colonel Stewart should come home fortl IW ith. Eiwl Granville, replying to Earl De la Warr, in the House of Lords, said the circumstances attending the reference of the Afghan difficulty to the judgment of the head of a friendly state were honourable to both Ru«si;i and England. It was well that a regrettable and disagreeable incident, on which counter state- ments and counter contentions were made, should be so referred. WHO IS TO ARBITRATE? As to a report that the King of Denmark would be named arbitrator, a Vienna correspondent tele- graphs I regret to have to report that the idea has already been abandoned. I am assured on high authority that King Christian on being sounded in reference to the project expressed his reluctance to accf-pt the rOle of mediator in so delicate a matter. The proposal, according to the Daily News' corre- spondent, meets with general approval in Berlin. It is pointed, out that his Majesty, being in equally friendly relations with both sides, is particularly fitted for mediation in this case, and that both Eng- land and Russia may accept his decision without risk of humiliation. RUSSIAN MOVEMENTS IN AFGHANISTAN. In a despatch from Tirpul, dated April 28, the special correspondent of the Standard says Further moveme\ts on the part of the Russians are reported here They are said to have occupied Kila Maur, on the Ku-hk River, with a body of Tekke horsemen, and th y are busily engaged in making a road to Tiit- correspondent of the Telegraph, in a message despatched from Tirpul a day later, says General Komaroff and Colonel Alikhanoff have gone from Saivkh? to Zu-fikar Pass. Their supposed object is to o t the Afghans, and to ad vance the Russian outposts to th* foot of the Paropamisus lange. Prince Dnudoukoff-Korsakoff's rumoured tour to Ask bad ;¡\;<1 Sarakhs has been postponed. Another correspondent with Sir Peter Lumsden telegraphs: "The Russians have now collected a large quantity of supplies at Ak-rabat, which is about 40 miles due east of Zulfikar, and about 30 south of Pul-i-Kliisti, their object being, of course, to facilitate the march on Herat, when it is deemed ad- visable to undertake that step." AFGHAN FEELING AGAINST ENGLAND. Th last named correspondent adds "One result of the Pen j deh incident has already made itself felt, our neglect to support the Afghans after the unprovoked attack upon them by the Russians having almost comp djy destroyed their confidenoe in us. The Sarikts and Cliarteaks are very angry at our absten- tion from all interference, while the Jamsbedies and other A.Vdian tribesmen are both hostile and suepi- cu ii Il tL .1' attitude, accming us of deserting them as we: e deserted by Russia six or seven years ago. K:, zi Saaddin, who represents the Ameer on the Boundary Commission, also takes a strong view of the matter, and oppnly asserts that we had no right to urge the Afghan outposts t" stand firm if we did not intend to support them in the event of their being unjustly attacked. Alto- gether, the situation is one of much difficulty and gives rise to a general feeling of uneasiness. Another matter that has tended to add to the difficulties of the position in which the Commis- sion iinds itself is the admission of a portion of Badehis into the so-called debatable territory. Rus- sian intrigues in Persia are also causing some uneasiness, and it is feared that Muscovite leanings in Khorassan are becoming very general." FACTS ABOUT PENJDEH. From Tirpul the Standard's special correspondent telegraphs some facts which he thinks may prove useful as to the disputed ownership of Penjdeh. tie says Up to 60 years back Penjdeh was occu- pied liy the Jemsidis and Hazarahs, and the Herat Government always had representatives there. When th Arsari Turkomans settled there they always paid tiibute to Herat. These were aiterwards followed by the Salor and Sarik Turkomans, and these alw P d fributtJ. Indeed, Penjdeh has, since the days of Jsadi. Shah, always been acknowledged as fowning part of the Government of Herat, and 60 ye;trs ago Derwerk Khan was its Governor under the Governor of Herat. From 1881 to 1884 Osman Khan was Governor. In 1884 Jemsidi was chief Governor, and when he left Penjdeh for Khiva the tribute of Penjdeh to Herat was paid through the Hazara Chief Kilanan. Since 1881 Herat has kept at Penjdeh a body of 15 Afghan soldiers as an escort for the Governor. Todd s map of the Province if Herat, as governed by Yar Mahomed in 1840, in- iudes Penjdeh and Pul-i-khatun. In the face of hfse facts there can tie. no question whatever that t'eu jdeh j, and La beeu for a very long period, au integral part of the Afghan Province of Herat. HOW THE RUSSIANS HAVE ADVANCED." The Times' correspondent at Tirpul sends the follow- ing K /l Tapa is one, Urush Tashan 18, Aimak- oaii Sari Yazi 32, Hazrat Imam 43, and Yulatan M0 from Ak Tapa, or Penjdeh proper. The are the only cultivable places in the district between Penjdeh and Yulatan. They are all desert at present, but might be populated, if Russia gained them. Sati Ya/.i has always been admitted to be part of l'enjdeh, whose inhabitants graze their sheep there. In 1840 Lord Auckland, after full inquiry, decided that Penjdeh be- longed to Afghanistan and Afghan governors have resided there before and since 1874. In F, bruary, 1*84, Russia occupied Merv, and in •nh, Yulatan, Shortly afterwards a Russian, apparently M. Lessar, visited Penjdeh, but the Sariks refused to have anything to say to him, and appealed to Jluat for protection. The Russian Ofi'cial Uúuttc of July 1 admits that the Penjdeh Sariks did not submit to Russia. In May a cominis- M'ii was agreed upon but before the Ameer knew this, he had moved his troops into Penjdeh, which was patrolled as far as Hazrat Imam. In October Russia occupied Pul-i-Khatun, and in November ColoDol Alikhanoff tried to enter Penjdeh, but was refiis-d admission by the Afghan general, whom he grievously insulted. In January, after the winter, when tho Penjdeh sheep went to graze in Sari Yazi the Albans resumed their patrolling, and placed a post there. Oil February C, the Russians advanced from Hazrat Imam to Aimakchari,forcinl2' the Afghan por.fs. -V correspondence followed with the British oidie.

TilE CRY OF THE CROFTERS" is the title of a 16 page pamphlet issued by the Scottish Land League of America, of which the Rev. Duncan Macgre^or, of Chicago (formerly of Rhyl), is chairman. Several meetings of representative Scotchmen were held in the Gran i Pacific Hotel, Chicago, in Feb uary, 1885, and the distressing condition of the crofters of Skye and ehiCW he; e in the High- lands of Scotland was brought under discass- ion. In order to bring out the tine condition | of the Highland crofters, aud at the same time to indicate the policy of the Scottish Land League of Chicago, tho said pamphlet was prepared. The pamphlet, in forcible and clear language, gives a full history of the wrongs, and snfFeungs, and oppressions en- dured by the Highland crofters, and particu- larly 111 the Isle of Skye An earnest and eloquent appeal tor help is made to the Scotchmen of America, aud concludes in the following words:—"We have no unfriendly feeling toward the Government of G-eat Britain. They are confronted with difficulties not of their own causing, and we deplctc making the crofter think that any Govern- ment can do for him" hat he ought to do for himself. But when all that has been saii. there remains the need for a comprehensive change in the land laws, such a change as will do all that law can do to remove, in course of time, the wrongs of many age. we appeal to Scottish organizations inArneric,1 to bring this appeal before our poople and as- sure them how much pleasure it would afford us if brrnches of the League were spread far and wide. This is not the spasm of a day. The land question allover the world is coming to the front, and they who seek to deal with it most speedily and most wisely, are the truest fnend" of the human race." Ax EVX :AOKDIN'AKV CASK.—A BIIlTH IN A BAKKUOUSE.—A case far out of the ordinary run of similar matters which from time to time engage the attention of the county jus- tices, came before the Holywell justices at their monthly sitting on Tuesday. A y ung woman, now an inmate of the Holywell work- house, sued a Rhyl tradesman, who has a wife and six children, to compel hi:n to support her illegitimate child. Mr. Win. n vi-s, rlhyl and Holywell, appealed for the applicant, and Marcus Louis defended. It appeared that the young woman was last year in sor\ ce with ,» relative of the ■:ef-. ud.int, v. h > •. ps a shop at Rhyl. It was alleged that t' a •Jcf. ant used to attend the bakehuum for his | relative, and that during his visits the im proper intimacy occurred which resulted is the birth of a child. Under the promise that something would be done for her in a pecun- iaty point of view the oceu: rence was screoned and the girl, although taxed by her mistress, denied that she was enceinte. She had, how- ever, ultimately to leave her situation, and went to reside in lodgings in Penymaes. On the 12th of December last she went to Rhyl to see the defendant, and bad to wait in that town until after the last train for Holy well had gone before she could obtain the inter- view. She then (accoiding to her statement) • ope tied t > .'efonda'.t to find ber shelte, for r.be Light and he admitted her to the bake- house, locking her in und passing the koy tu her under tbe door, DuMtig the night she gave birth to a child in the bakehouse, and -he then went to defendant's residence, knocked him up, and asked that assistance should be given to her or that she should be emitted to the house. She, howover, again returned to the bakehouse, and defendant at six o'clock, having given her some money, she went to Costigan's rooms, had a cup of tea, and then took train to Holywell, walking thence to Penymaes, a distance of about two miles with her baby. She was then attended to by a doctor. It was stated that the defend- ant entirely denied the allegations of the girl, and he was called to the witness b ;x, but at the suggestion of the Bench he was not exam- ined. Ultimately an orior for 2s. weekly for 13 years was made against the defendant. 2ND VOLUNTEER BATTALION R. \V.

Ty GWYN, HENLLAN.—A very large and in- fluential company of the gentry and farmers of the district assembled at Ty Gwyn, Henllan, on Thursday, 30th April, when the very valu- able stock and farm implements of Mr. P. H. Chambree, of Llysmeirchion, who is giving up his farm, were offered for sale by Messrs Clough and CJ. The implements, of which there were a very large assortment, made very good prices all round, especially considering that the season is now very much advanced. Several tons of well secured hay was then offered in small lots, and made about £4 100 a ton, and some magnum bonum potatoes 4s 3 i a hobbet. A move was then made for the yard, where the disposal of the cattle, to the number of thirty, was prooeeded with. The dairy oows, to the number of eleven, were u exceedingly choice lot, and evoked the keenest competition at prices varying from £12 op to £24 5s, the latter price being obtained for a really splendid animal, whose three weeks old calf reached the high figure of JB5 6s, Two exceedingly nice in-calf heifers made £17 and £13 10s respectively. Two-year old bullocks made from £9 5s. to £10, and a number of yearlings averaged about JE5 10s a piece. Two very p omising young yearling bnlls being secured for a gentleman in Lancashire at £15 each. The horses were a very useful lot, and made prices ranging up to £25 10s a two- year old filly teaching £:2110: and two year lings jEll 2s 6d and £10 respectively. A large number of poultry and the pigs made satis- factory prices. Altogether the sale may be said to have been a most decided success in every way, and one of the best that has taken place in the neighbourhood for a very long time, the bidding throughout being of the most animated character.

Llew Llwyfo who acted as conductor, sang with all hi" old fire and precision which has made him so long a favourite.

SHOP FIXTURES—INCOMING AND OUTGOING TENANT. J. fl. Piercy, Rhyi, sued David M rria, Vah Road, for the sum of £3 os. balance due for shop fixtures, garden produce, and j .other things.—Mr Wm. Davies apoeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Alun Lloyd for the defend- ant. Mr Davies explained that Mr Piercy wat giving up the tenancy of a house in Vale Road, tihe defendant being the incoming tenant. Tlie parties met and agreed upor the sum of jE5 17s. 6d. as the valae of the fixtures. Mr Davies then produced a copy of an authority given by Dr Hughes, the land- lord, to Mr Piercy to collect, and to Mr Morris to pay the sum of £2 12s. 6i. ann stating that the other items in the cl&ftn were- fixtures belonging to the house, and oould not be removed by the outgoing tenant. Mr Piercy claimed that right, unless be couln sell them to the incoming tenant. Mr Alun Lloyd admitted that the shutters being loose fixtuies were removeable by the outgoing tenant, and would agree that 15s. was the price agreed upon. BUt there was a certain window fixture, for which a claim of 10s. was made. Mr Piercy Was called and proved the fixture in question to be a board fixed by nails to some woodwork to serve as a sort of shop window. His Honour said that he found that the claims for fixtures hinged upon two questions. Flrst, ¡ he moue ofannexatian -w hetber thev could be easily removed without injury to the property, and secondly the purpose for which the fixtures weie annexed—whether as an improvement to the freehold or to the better enjoyment of the tenancy. Mr Davies submitted that the fixture in question was for the purpose of the better enjoyment of the tenancy and easily removed. His Honour concurred. Mr Alun Lloyd submitted that there had been a misunderstanding, and referred to the letter from Dr Hughes and stated that tho plaintiff was in arrear with his rent. Els Honour said that was a matter for plaintiff and Di JHughes, and gave verdict for Picrcy. B..OK-HAWKERS AND THEIR AGREEMENTS.

His Hunour said then plaintiff could not make cut his oli.se.fur he (his Honour) was not in a posi- tionto know whether the books had been deli- vered in the manner agreed upon. Here were four volumes ,h:u5& upon a man in as many mouths, at 12s each. If was im- possible for a mdon iu uelenaant's position t) piy.ana also pay his way-bis legitimate debts. The plaintiff must either submit to a non- suit or pay the oasts of the day to have the case adjourned for the production of the pi spectus. If he would take the books back aua cancel the order His Honour would waiver all questions of oost and non-suit him The plaintiff said he could not do that, all i paid the costs. His Honour: I give you notice now that if the terms of the agreement have not been striotly adhered to, to the verI, letter I will decide against you.

The bills were made out to tbe company. His Honour asked him to produce them. Mr Kemp said that all bills were sent to London, but he oould get them. Mr Alun Lloya (for plaintiff) Perhaps you will allow me to ask what the Pennant Mine Jomp^ny is. Mr Kemp: Well- < His Hon iU' Oh, I know (laughter). I and Captain Kemp havelhad daye together over it. The case was adjourned .for the production of the bills. Mr Alun Lloyd appeared in another case in which Wm. Clement, Brynrodyn, sued Capt Kemp and E. J. Bartlett for wages due. There were 17 miners who bad not been paid and the wages due amounted to JE35 in the aggregate. After a short hearing Mr Alun Lloyd applied for an adjournment to enable him to investigate the atfuirp of the company. It was stated that the company was in the hands of a liquidator and had been for some time. The property remained un- sold, and it was a question whether the liquidator should not be removed and another appointed. The adjournment was accordingly granted, but it was understood that notice should be given to the defendant Kemp if tbe oase was prooeeded with.

PRIMROSES AND POETRY. To the Editor of the RHTL AXIVUTISU. SIE,—I am inclined to believe that your corres- pondent — An Outsider" — in his attempted criticism of Mwrog's lines on the primrose, betrays more personal ill-feeling towards the poet than the qualities of a critic. There is nothing, I should fancy, in the literary world more unworthy than when a critic degrades himself to give vent to feel- ings of hostility under the cover of criticism. I have read the lines as they appeared in the Advertiser on tho 25th ult., and I, in common with several competent judgen, regard them as a very happy and beautiful effusion. With regard to their alleged grammatical inacuracy I must state tha.t An Outsider" is no authority on English Grammar, for, even iu the first sentence of his letter, he reveals his iguorauce o' one ot the most e ementary rules of lSyulax. I shall best dispose of the assertion that Mwrog is no poet by appending the testimony of the Rev. Gwertil James on the eubjeot :— "Mwrog SY'n meddu mawredd-a Mwrog Fedd gymmeriad purwedd. Y farddol gJog-Mwrog a'i medd, A Mwrog gasha amhuredd." Yours faithfully, CASADOO. I May, 5th. Mwrog has another able ohampion, but Caradoo was first to hand,—ED. M.A. I

THE LATE MR. R. S, HUDSON OF CHESTER. POSTHUMOUS CHARITY. In th? High Court of Justice, on Saturday, before Mr 0 ustice Pearson, in the case m re Hudson—Creed v. Heade: :on wag heard. Thif was a stimmons taken out in an action for the administration of the estate of the late Mr RoV>?rt Spear Hudson, J.P., of Che-tpr, the well-known dry soap manufacturer, to determine whether his estate is liable to complete the payment of large sums Mr Hudson had promised to contribute by instalments to various charitable objects oonnecrei with thelcongregatioual Union of England—a body of which the deceased was a prominent member. It is understood that Mr Hudson had promised to contribute to charities to the extent of L50,030, besides having given enormous sums du'irg his lifetime. The claims now in question were thre:— first, a claim for a sum of iS,000, residue of a sum of X20,000 which Mr Hudson had promiaed to pay by five annual instalments of L4,000 to a fund for the liquidation of debts on Congregational churches; secondly, a claim for a sum of ig,000, under a promise by the testator, Mr Hudson, to contribute i2, 000 aj year for five years towards the special work of church extension in London, provi- ded L18,000 a year was otherwise raised, and if any less sum was raised to contribute in proportion and, thirdly, a claim in respect of a promise to pay £100 towards the cost of erecting each of any number of mission halls, not exceeding twenty, in or near London. Ten of the mission halls had been erected, and tht full proportion of the um to be contributed by other persons towards the special purposes of church extension had been given for the period that elapse-I since Mr Hudsou s de ith. Mr Cookson, Q.C., and Mr Lemon, for the Com- mittee of the Congregational Union, argued that, under the peculiar circumstances of the case, in which other persons had, by the promise of the testator, been induced to contribute sums of money for a joint object, and to do certain things, there was an executed consideration sufficient to make a legal contract, and also to take the case out of the Statute of Frauds, which was set up by the other side. Mr Davey, Q U., and Mr Cozens-Hardy, Q.C. (Mr Cann with them), argued for the executors. Mr Seddon appeared for the defendant to the action. THE DECISION.—THE CLAIX FAILED. Mr Justice Pearson said he believed this was the first time in the history of the Court of Chancery in which an attempt had been made to make a de-id man's estate liable for promises given during his lifetime to make a charitab e contribution towards any object. When he first heard the case opened, he was struck with the novelty of the application., and asked if there was any authority on the subject and was told there was no direct authority. The application had only been redeemed by the ability with which it had been supported by Mr Cookson. Mr Cookson admitted very fairly that, unless he could show a legal debt, there was no case, and it was necessary to argue the case so as to show that there was a positive legal contract. The question was whether there was any contract at all in a legal sense. Was there anything that would be called a consideration, either here or elsewhere ? He was utterly at a loss to find one of any sort or description. He had no doubt that if Mr Hudson had lived, and was able to pay, be would have paid the promised contributions in the sam* manner that he had paid other snms. He was not bound to pay; but making from time to time charitable gifts which he had expressed an intention to make, the only consideration alleged was the liabi ity of the committee who undertook to distribute the funds. In the first place there was no duty they under- took as between themselves and Mr dudson; there was no binding obligation between ihein. Sup- posing the committee had chosen to dissolve themselves, the members woul have been under no kind of liability to Mr Rudson. The matter was voluntary on both sides, there was nothing more than an intention of joining iu con- tributing and managing a fund for the purpose for which it was formed. He had said notning about the Statute of Frauds. The Statute of Frauds would be fatal to the oase, if there was nothing more. There was a contract allege t, one rot to be performed within a Tear, which required signatures, and there was nothing in writing to satisfy the statute. It was quite plain there was no executed consideration, if that would have t"keD the case out of the statute but what his lordship understood by executed consideration was part performance, whioh was only applicable in oases relating to real estate. The case failed altogether, and he was bound to say this was an attempt to turn charity into something very different from obaiity. He thought the claim ought to tail, and did fail if such a claim was to be allowed, he did not know to what extent a new form of posthumous charity might grow-a form of chanty that was quite bad enough as it was. The summons having been taken out by the executors, and they being willing, the oosta were allowed out of the estate&. -Chester Courant.

HOLLOW A Y'f! OINTMENT AmD PILLS. — Coughs Influenza. — The soothing p-operties of these medicaments render them well worthy of trial in all diseases of the respiratery organs. In common colds and influenza the Pills, taken internally, and the Ointment rubbed over the chest and throat, are exceedingly efficacious. When induenza is epide- mic, this treatment is the easiest, safest and surest. Holloway's Pills purify the blood, remove all obstioles to its free circulation through the lungs, relieve the over-gorged air tubes, and render res- piration free, without reducing the strength, irritating the nerves, or depressing the spirits such are the ready means of escaping from enffer- ng when afflicted with colds, coughs, bronchitis, ind other chest oomplaints. A WOBD TO LODGIMO Houbs Kzwxu.-There is not a week passing without bringing with it a heap of letters for oopies of the Rhyl Advertiter containing a "list of apartments to let." But notwithstanding the fact that there are plenty of apartments in the town ready for the reaeption of visitors, only few are advertised, and consequently strangers in the Midlands wishing to mÙe all arrangements before leaving home, do not know to whom to apply. Now is the time to advertise. It is no use leaving it till the I, Season is in full swing. We in Rhyl trust to August aDd Sep- tember to bring visitors to us, whereas, plent7 are anxious to come a great deal earlier. If Rhyl lodging house keepers want an early season, and consequently a lengthy onf, let them advertise.

Mr A. Humphreys said they required a great deal more uniformity in High Street. In Llan- dudno such astute of things could not be found, inasmuch as uniformity of but dings was insisted upon. Some fifteen years agu there was a great feeling in the town against wooden huts, and he believed there was a resolution on the miuutes condemning such structures. Mr James Taylor supported the recommendation of the committee, and remarked that Mr Humphreys a.1I under a misapprehension as to Llandudno. Commissioners there had not the control over buildings which had been intimated because the properties were leasehold. On a division, the amendment was lost, and the recommendations of the committee confirmed. OTTT-DOOB AMUSEMENTS. In order to avoid any clashing of the out-door amusements with other amusements—the promenade band, the Pier, and the Winter Gardens—the t and committee recommended that all street amusements be prohitited from performing from 11 am. to from 8.45 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. and from 7.3o p.m. to 9.30. An application from Smith, the proprietor of Punch and Judy," was recommend- ed on payment of 10s weekly in advance, and subject to stands being lixed by the committee. A similar application by Tom Murray was also re- commended to be granted, on payment of 12s 6d a week in advance, and the troupe not to be less thun 4 in number in June and September, and not than 6 in July and August, all to be steady, sober, and respectable men. Mr Thomas Ellis moved the confirmation of the minutes, and in doing so stated that there was a great cry in the town because the various enter- tainments clashed with each other. Visitors com- plained, because they could not attend the whole at the same time and even the performers them- selves complained. In order to avoid that the oommittee had drawn out the said rules, so that everyone could have a chance to make a living. The same space of time had been allowed for each of the entertainments. The motion was duly seconded. Mr Frimston strongly objected to the niggers being precluded from performing on the sands at < 11 o'clock till one as v ,ual. That entertainment was a source of attraction to hundreds, and children especially. He proposed as an amend- ment that the niggers be allowed to perform on tht beach from 11 to 1 o'clock, and that the charge be 15s weekly. Mr Gunner seconded. Mr Trehearn proposed as a compromise that the niggers be allowed to perform on the beach from 10 50 12 o'clock, and that the charge be 15s per week. Mr Wynne seconded. After a great deal of discussion, the amendments TO lost, Mr Trehearn's by 8 votes against 4, and Frimston's by 7 votes against 4. The recom- mendations of the committee was therefore con- firmed. PROPOSED NEW BAND STAND. The Band Committee having been informed by Mr Davies, the new band-master, that the present bandstand was unsuitable for the purpose, the committee recommended that a new bandstand be procured at once and at a cost not exceeding JE80 the present bandstand, however, could be made fit for use at a cost of about £7, but Mr Davies objected to it. The Town Purveyor had submitted a plan of a stand placed on a cylinder, the estimated cost oeing £80. In addition to a fund in hand by Capt. Wynne Jones it was proposed to get up entertain- ments, and to solicit subscriptions, towards getting the money, the deiiciency, if an), to be provided for •.n the estimates for next year. Mr Thomas Ellis moved the confirmation of the minutes, and remarked that the proposed expendi- ture was a necesFity. Mr Trehearn seconded. Mr W. Williams suggested that the old bandstand be advertised for sale. Mr H. Parry said the committee thought it would make a suitable office for the Inspector of Nuisances. Mr W. Wynne said it was contrary to the usual way of carrying on business to charge the expendi- ture of one year on the following one. Let them get the money first, and then spend it. He pro- posed that the £7 only be expended this year. They had only about three weeks time to get. the stand, and they could not have a proper one in such a hurry. Mi Thomas Ellis said there was a certain gentle- man who was wiling to pay for the bandstand and to gather a sufficient sum to clear himself. Hut for fear there would be a deficiency it was proposed to take it out of the lites for 1886. If they passed the minutes the bandstand could be had. As to ex- ceeding the estimates that was done to the extent or lundreds of pounds, on metalling, &c., every year and only a few weeks ago a sum of £10 had been spent in that way for covering an open drain. Mr Berrington said they would not actually need the new baud stand stand before July, when the augmented number of performers would commence. Mr Frimston seconded Mr Wynne's amendment, as he objected to taking anything out of the rates. Mr P. Mostyn Williams remarked tnat by taxing the rates they would be doing an illegal thing. Utimately the minutes were confirmed bv a majority of 8 votes against 4. BE-AFSANGEMENT OF LOANS. The minutes of the finance committee in reference to the re-arrangement for the payment of the loan of £2700 to Dr Vaughan Hughes were read, and explained at length by Mr Wynne and Mr Williams The Board was asked to approve of the draft- mortgage to the Prudential Assurance for a loan of £800 to be repaid with interest at the rate of 4 per cent in four instilments of J6220 78 lOd. This sum together with a sum of JE1900 in consols would enable the board to payoff the loan of £2,700, and effect a saving of £61 a year to the town. The price of consols at present, however, was very low, and it was a matter for the decision of the board whether they would sell now, or wait until better prices would be realized, or make arrangements to borrow the money.—The recommendations of the committee were agreed to. THE CORN MARKET. The Town Lall, Market, &c., Committee recom- mended that the corn market henceforth be closed at 12 o'clock, and that the Chief Constable be asked to instruct his men to do their best to put & stop to hawking in the streets.—With the exception that the time was extended to one o'clock, the recommen- dations of the committee were confirmed. THE MARKET HALL. Referring to the Market Hall, Mr Thomas Ellis (chairman of the town hall committee) announced that all the stalls in the market hall, with the ex- option of two or three had been let to tenants for the whole year (hear, hear). DETECTIVE DRAINAGE. It was agreed, on the recommendation of th" sewerage and sanitary committee, to give 14 dayS notice to owners of oertain property in High Street, to carry out the instructions of the Town Surveyor, with a view of abating a nuisance arising from de- fective drainage. THE DEE CONSERVANCY BILLS. In order to ascertain more definitely the effect of the proposed legislation, by means of the Dee Con. servancy Bills, over any portions of the foreshore in the district of Rhyl, and the time within which opposition to the Bills could be offered, the road committee recommended the Clerk to obtain the opinion of Mr Edw. Roberts, solicitor. The Clerk did so, and Mr Roberts gave it as his opinion that the Bills would give the Board of Conservators consider able powers over the foreshore at Rhyl. The Clerk was then instructed to write to the pro- moters of the Bills for copies, and a reply was re- ceived stating that the promoters did not seek to -iterfere with the foreshore at Rhyl, and asking for copies of the Rhyl Improvement Acts of 1852 and •JQ72 The Clerk was instructed to reply, asking whether the several Bills had been amalgamated as reported, and for a copy of the amalgamated Bill if uch was the case also to request an interview with the Conservators at Chester, when copies of the "jocal Acts would be produced.—Confirmed. SEA WATER FOR THE STREETS. As the result of an interview between the Town Surveyor and the Pier Company with reference to the pumping appliances on the pier, it was slated that an arrangement had been made whereby a portion of the town-High-street, Queen-street and +he Promenade—would in future be watered entirely with sea water. FAIRFIELD STREET. The above was the name decided upon for thB new road over Mr Christians' land in Russell Road. LEAVE OF ABSENCE. An application by the Town Clerk for a few days leave of absence, in order to attend a meeting of the Congregational Union at Aberystwyth, was gran tRc1, THE LATE ELECTION. The Town Clerk reported that the Hoturnil Officer at the election on the 9th of April bad handeu to him his certificate, with all documents under Bf to be kept by him for six months, and at the end of that time to be destroyed. UNPAVED FOOTWAYS IN WELLINGTON ROAD. Mr Gunner had given notice of the following mo- tion :—" That instructions be given to the Clerk to give 21 days' notice to the owners of the several properties fronting Wellington Road on the south I •side from the corner of Elwy Street to No. 44, to flag or pave the footway opposite tho said proper- ties, to the satisfaction of the Commissioners." However, the time being late, and several members /ave left the meeting, Mr Gunner consented to refer the matter to the road committee for their con. sideration and report.
