DENBIGH. The Denbigh Office of the NORTH WALES GUARDIAN is now at Albert Terrace, Vale-street (nearly opposite the Station-road). All communications addressed either to "The Reporter," or A-fr. COTTOM byname will receive immediate attention. The paper is on sale at the shops of Messrs. J. DA VIES and W. A. NOTT, and at the Bookstall at the Station. THE MARKET on Wednesday was well attended and a fair amount of business done of a general character, though the corn market semed almost forsaken. The weather was miserably cold and wet, and to add to the discomfort the streets were in a most filthy state inconsequence of the previous day's fair. FAIR.—The fair on Tuesday was tolerably well stocked with cattle and horses, but the business done was very trjfliDg money scarce on the one hand, and farmers on the other anxious to part with stock even at reduced prices. The bulk of the business seemed to be done at the Royal Oak Auction Mart, where Mr John Armor sold a quantity of stock. DRAMATIC COMPANY.—During the week Scott's Dramatic Company have given excellent perform- ances in the Assembly Rooms to tolerably good audiences. All the pieces placed on the stage have been represented in a style far superior to that of the generality or travelling companies the acting of Miss Scott being particularly effective, indeed the bulk of the performers exhibited considerable talent. CHURCH NEWS.—The new curate is we hear to be oidained on the first Sunday in November and forthwith licensed to the work of the parish. A concert is to be given in the Assembly Rooms, by numerous ladies and gentlemen in the neighbour- hood in aid of the funds of the Church Sunday Schools. The Dean of St. Asaph preacnes in the parish on Sunday next in aid of the Church Building Society. MUNICIPAL ELECTION.—The coming election is now becoming a topic of interest; three of the retiring members, Messrs. R. Da vies, R. H Roberts, and William Morris, will offer themselves for re-election. At present the only new candidate really in the field is Mr. ForJkes, of Bryn, Henllan. He is at present one of the guardians of the poor for Henllan parish, is a thorough man of business, and would, wo have no doubt, make an excellent member; being likely to take an intelligent and independent view of all questions. It seems only fair that the Henllan portion of the borough should have at least one special representative. We believe other gentlemen will be brought for- ward, and the likelihood is that the election will for once be a lively affair. The present election may in in some measure have an effect upon another im- portant question, namely H Who is to be Mayor ?" CONCERT.—On Friday evening, a concert was given in aid of the funds of the Denbigh Baptist Cause." The Assembly Rooms were crowded, the desire being to aid the object. The Mayor presided. Miss Roberts, High-street, acted as accompanist and Played excellently. A varied programme of Welsh and English selections was on the whole well rendered. Miss H. B. Morris of Rhyl, well known in the district, sang charmingly; whilst Mrs. Edwards Rees, made a most favourable impression on the audience; her singing being pleasing and of good quality. Mr. W. W. Thomas, gave several Welsh pieces described in the programme as descriptive songs and it is only necessary that we should say that if his idea is to imitate the well known and highly gifted Mynyddog," he had better alter his cause, adopt a different style, and above all get some- body to play the accompaniments to his songs. The other performers who each contributed a fair share were :—" Eos Brychan," Messrs. Frank Jones and D. J. Davies of Rhyl. A WATER SUPPLY FOR TREFNANT.— At the Union Sanitary Committee Meeting, on Thursday, a discussion arose as to the necessity of a better water supply for Trefnant village. The Surveyor produced very elaborate plans of a supply from the Rhyl Water Company's Works at Llannefydd, near .Denbigh, by means of a junction at Bryn Elwy thus, by 2,100 yards of 2t-inch pipe to Penypalmont, and then by 1,529 yards of 2-inch pipes to the village. It seemed that one advantage of the scheme was that all the pipes could be laid along the public roads, so that private property would not have to be interfered with in any way. It seemed from the remarks of Mr. Wynne, the chairman, that the work was compulsory, and if the committee did not do it, the ratepayers would have to do so. Mr. Lloyd said that no good water could be obtained in the village without payment. The plans and estimates were approved and signed by the Chair- man, so as to be forwarded to the Local Govern- ment Board for sanction. It was stated that the Local Government Board, before sanctioning the work, would hold an inquiry in the village. Opposition, it was stated, would be made to the scheme by the ratepayers belonging to the Henllan portion of the village. The Chairman said if that opposition was successful the responsibility would be removed from the shoulders of the Sanitary Authority.
