—— THE Royal visit to Wales last week more than fulfilled the most sanguine expecta- tions, and the day of ceremonial passed off in a blaze of sunshine and of triumph, and with a consensus of opinion and sympathy which is better than either. All those who were responsible for the success of the visit are to be cordially congratulated upon their admirable arrangements, which evoked warm comments from the Royal and other distinguished visitors. Aberystwyth cer- tainly distinguished itself by spirited con- duct. It is neither big nor wealthy, but it has done large and liberal things, and we hope it will profit by the result. Machynlleth, also, deserves equal praise, and at both these places there was nothing to mar the success of the visit, and the perfect order which everywhere pre- vailed must especially be acknowledged and praised. The University authorities and the Cambrian Railways Company set them- selves to their arduous tasks in a manner which won loud encomiums from the Royal visitors, as evidenced by the letters which appear in another column from H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, and the way in which the very large number of excursion trains were passed over the single line of the Cambrian Railways Company reflected greatly to the credit of the officials. We should not forget to mention either the Mayor and Cor- poration of Aberystwyth, and both the Machynlleth and Aberystwyth Reception Committees, all of whom worked with in- domitable pluck, which, it is gratifying to know, brought its due reward.
