BOWLING CLUB FOR OLD COLWYN. A PROMISING START. During the last few days, a very promising movement has been initiated at Old Oolwyn with the object of providing the village with a pro- perly equipped bowling club and green. A small party of enthusiastic followers of the "Woods" set the movement on foot, and a, public meeting of a thoroughly representative character was held last week with the object of considering \J a. ww. It was reported that Mr D. Mac. Sicoll, 01 Denvas, regarded the movement with much favour, and it was decided that a de- putation wait upon Mr Mac. Niooll in order to Jiscertain whether he could provide a green for the club on reasonable terms. The deputation consisted of Mr Catlow, Mr H. A. Booth, Mr Sykes, and Mr William a.nd' on Monday evening, at another meeting (over which Mr IIindie presided) Mr Catlow presented his re- port, of the interview wi'li Mr Mac. Nicoll, from which it appeared that the club would be able to secure the use of a plot of land already vir- tually made up as a bowling green, yluctb is both delightfully and oent rally situated off the main road. Mr Mac. Niooll's terms were so very reasonable that the committee without further ado, decid-L-d to form the club, and to accept Mr Mao. Nicoll's onerous offer. The club will be called the "Old' Colwyn Bowl- ing Club," and it was decided to charge a sub- j scription foe* of 5s for this season only, and the readiness with which the fees were paid up st the meeting indicated1 the enthusiasm of the members in their endeavour to bring the move- ment to a successful head. A working committee of experienced bowilers waa formed, thtei members being- MCSSTS W. Cat- low, H. Evans, E. Dean, W. E. Hart, Robert ilindle, J. C. Syges and' J. Mather. Mr Catlow was appointed chairman of the committee, on the motion of Mr Hart, seconded by Mr Wil- liams Roes. It was also unanimously decided that Mr Thomas Davies, stationer, sihouid act as secre- tary, Mr Hindle being appointed, treasurer. Mr W. Parry Jones offered the club the use of a hut for dressing! and storing purposes, and the offer was gratelull-y accepted, the secretary being instructed' to convey the ckib's thanks to him. It was further decided that Mr Catlow and Mr Sybes purchase forthwith woods and other necessary appliances. At tiha close of the meeting, the Chairman thanked has colleagues and the members for the enthusiasm wihich they had d:j:Played) over the preliminary arrangements, and heartily congra- tulated1 the olub upon the exceedingly promising start made already. Reference was also made to the liberal assist- anoe and ready sympathy extended by Mr D. Mac. Niooll to tl-te movement from the com- mencement. TheTe are vacancies for new members, and anyone desiring to enrol themselves should communicate with the treasurer, Mr Hindle, Chandon. Old Colwyn.
PKOPOSED ANGLERS ASSO- CIATION FOR PENMACHNO A PROMISING MOVEMENT. A largely attended meeting of anglers was held at the OiNnch House, ronma.ehno, on Sat- urday evening, the Rev. Ben. Jones, Rector of the Parish, presiding. Mr E. Davies Jones, solicitor, Llanrwst, said he had convened the meeting at the request of local angler3 in order to discuss ways and means to improve the fishing- in the Machno River. It was admitted by all experienced anglers that the river was one of tine best in the Principality for breeding trout, but owing toO the unprotected btate 01 the waters, the river was continually netted, and if it had not been for some pools where netting was impossible, the riv&r would have been devoid of fish for some years. Mr Jomes related, his experiences as a member of the Nant Conway Board of Fisheries, and stated that for the want of funds it was impossible to ,r protect the large area under their jurisdiction, but he felt very certain if the Board was ap- proached in the first instance, some scheme could be adopted by which the river could be staked and a fresh supply of fisih procured from the hatcheries of Lord Elsemere. Some years since an Angling Association was formed in the dis- trict which received the support of the reparian owners, and the late Lord Ponrhyn allowed the Glas-gwm River to be controlled by the Associa- tion. The present Lor-d Penrhyn had shown consaderable interest in the locality and had twice accepted the presidency of the local Agri- cultural Show. No doubt his lordihip, if ap- proached, would renew the facilities gTanted by his father. The reason the late Angling Asso- ciation failed was the disloyalty of members. He pressed upon the meeting the importance of co-operation and loyalty, and if this was main- ta-inedi the success of the new association was assured. On the motion of Mr J. G. Evans, seconded by M. EJhs Jones, it was resolved to appoint a deputation to wait upon the Board of Conser- 'n vators in order to lay the proposed scheme be.- fore them, and the following members were selected:—<Rev. Ben. Jones, Messrs E. Davies Jones, T. R. Jones (Moss Hill), J. G. Evansi, and James Foster. A strong committee was formed to report the result of the deputation to the general meeting, oMd to interview the riparian owners relative to the movement. Over 50 of thove present subscribed their names as members of the new association, and volunteered to re-nder every assistance by ro- porting to the association any instance of poach- ing of any kind in the district. Mr W. G. Evans, Bron Ddiorw, was elected secretary and instructed, to write to the various pisciouitural companies for quotations for re- stocking the river with trout.
A contract has -been concluded for the con- struction by the Japanese ol two gunboats for the Chinese OATV.
GROUSE SHOOTING. SPORT ON THE NORTH WALES MOORS. Sportsmen in North Wales were out early in good weather, and many excellent bag's were made before noon.

For two or three years, however, there have bt-t-u no pro- grammes, but this year a highly successful re- vival was initiated by the Deganwy T.I.A., who prevailed upon the old Regatta Committee to ro- commence work, the outcome being the most enjoyable proceedings witnessed on Saturda-v. The follow.ng were the officials:—Commoddre Mr Albert Wood, J.P. Hon. Treasurers: Mr Owen Rowland, J.P., and Mr Edward Jones. Hon. Secretaries: Mr J. E. Bottomley and Mr A. Mclntyre.

An unusually large crowd of visitors and residents viewed- the events from the Deaanm,y Promen- ade and the Conway Morfa Reach; the prize money offered, 2115, was a record, and the num- of entries, 145, is probably a record" for Nortih Wales. Thus the regatta has not only been set on its feet again, but hids fair to be- wme one of the principal events of its kind in North Wales. The following were THE RESULTS.

LLANDUDNO & DISTRICT FIELD CLUB. EXCURSION TO FFYNNON BEDR. On Saturday an excursion had been arranged to Ffynnon Bedr, but in the morning' the weather looked so threatening that it was feared 'the exounsion would have to be postponed. However by one o^clock the cloud's lifted, and the; afternoon proved to be an ideal one for an excursion in tho lovely Vale of Conway. The Misses Brazil had kindly volunteered to act as leaders for the afternoon, and in addition in- vited the members to tea at their charming reo sidence, Ffynnon Bedr. As August is generally a busy month it was feared by the promoters that the party would be but small, but in this they were agreeably disappointed, as there were about 40 present, one of the largest and certain- ly the most charming and successful of any of the ordinary meeting's held this year. The visitors came in motors from Colwyn Bay, and in carriages from Talyctifn, and it was feared at one time there would not be sufficient conveyances. However, these difficulties were surmounted, and on arrival at Ffynnon Bedr, the party was met by Mrs Brazil, the Misses Brazil, and Dr. Brazil. A start was made at once for the ancient wen, known as Ffynnon Bedr, St. Peter's Well. Miss Brazil explained that a few years ago, the well had been un- covered, when it was found that it was rectan- gular in form and approached by steps from one sidie. In times gone by, it is supposed to have been inclosed in a building, but of this no traces now remain. Adjoining the well is a rnagnifioemt yew tree, the age of which is esti- mated to be upwrards of a thousand years. Ad- joining MM Brazil's house is also another fine specimen of a yew tree. As is usual in such cases, there are traditions of healing connected with this well, and its waters are supposed to cure warts, etc., and people used to throw articles such as pins into the well, accompany- I ing the act with a wish, in this case a wish for good and not for eviil as in the case of Ffymron Elian. But time was passing rapidly, and so a start was noon made f,or Bath Farm, where the Misses Brazil showed the visitors a large upright stone; between this and the river was formerly another stone, and these two are supposed to be two of a series which extend right up to Bwloh y Ddeufaen, near the Roman road—pos- sibly they may have been landmarks-ülld cer- tainly they would have been of use in the time when the country was covered with snow and there were not many marks to guide the traveller. From thence the party proceeded to Ll wyn y Gwaew, about the name of which a keen discussion arose, some maintaining that it, meant, the grove of pain and others the grove of the sword, but as the sword is 'the cause of pain, it was diecaded that both interpretations were oorrect. Close by was a very fine speci- men of one of theso 13th or 14tih century houses, in which the roof principals extended to the ground. There is a tradition that in the times oi Owen Glendower, the inhabitants were com- pelled to build their houses with principals ex- tending to the ground, the idea being to pre- vent tbm building houses too large and more than one storey, in which case they might have bec-n converted into strongholds. In this case, and in fact in all oasea, these principals are made of one piece of wood; a tree with the re- quisite curve is found, and then t'his is out into the right sihiape; 'to prevent them moving out- ward's, they were connected with ties (horizon- tal) sometimes two or more, and in holes in these were fixed vertical pieces of timber, so as to form tlie frame work for a partition, the spaces between these being filled up with wicker work and plasterd wiLh clay, thus forming the famous "watte and daub" partition. The re- turn route was varied by a path across the fields to the stream which flows past Ffynnon Bedr. Time did. not permit the party to explore the eaves, which are said to exist on the sides of this stream, nor to see the remains of the old monks dwelling, which are said to be foynd near Mrs Brazd's house, on arrival at which the party found a, sumptuous tea provided on the lawn adjoining the house, and which after the walk and excitement of struggling- over every variety of Welsh fence and; stylo was thoroughly appre- ciated. On the proposition of the Rev. T. Guest, seoondLcL by Mr G. A. Humphreys, a very hearty vote of thanks was passed !to the leaders end hostesses. After a pleasant ride, lalycafn Station was reached at 7.30. It was noticed that there were members from Colwyn Bay, Bangor, Llandudno, Llanrwst, and Llan- fairfechan, which seems to show that the Club is spreading outside Llandudno, and Mr Lowe, the Excursion Secretary, mentioned at tea that there were about 150 members. On Saturday, August 27th, there will be an excursion to the famous Penrhyn Slate Quar- ries, which the members have had the kind per- mission of the chief managter, Mr E. A. Young, bo view. Tea will be provided at Bethesda.
SCOTLAND FOR THE HOLIDAYS. THE WEST COAST ROUTE. Smooth running, speed. and' comfort are what one always expects 'to fmd on the West Coast route to Scotland. All these things are duly en- joyed by a oonespcndieiit who ta-avedled by day by tho 10.15 a.m. from Ruston to Perth during the holiday period, last week. Along with ffbese oomforts there was the added1 luxury, which travellers do not everywhere exp#rien< of a feeling of restfulncss during the journey and an entire absence of fuss, in spite of the heavy traffic and, the numbers travelling. The details had been thought out, and the result was an ease in working most beneficial to the passen- gers, who were enabled to lunch and dine com- fortably on the train without any of the,worries of travel. The variety of soensry traversed adds very much to the interest of the route. South of Lan- cashire it is for the most part typical English scenery, then at Wigan it passes into the Lanca- shire oolLery distriot with its miles of coal wag- gons on sidings. The hills and deep valleys of Westmoreland and Cumberland and the famous Shap incline provide another change, and there ia a distinct diffe.renoe when the border is crossed at Carlisle. For about the first hour after leaving Carlisle the going is easy, then comes the steep climb up to Beattock, followed by a rapid run down to Oarstairs Junction. The Scottish industrial district about Whiffles and; Ooatbridge has a. grim interest of its own, and' there may be seen in use many off the high capacity mineral waggons for which the Cale- donian Railway is famous. From the presence of Nortih British locomotives and waggons- in this neighbourhood one can realise a little what the competition between these oonijKuues must have boon. Beyond Lambert one comes to the beautiful and historic country round Stirling, which is one of the chief charms of the West Coast ro to Perth and Aberdeen.

INTERESTING BAZAAR AT DOLWYDDELEN.. OPENED BY MRS LLOYD GEORGE. ADDRESS BY THE CHANCELLOR. EXTENSION OF OLD AGE PENSIONS SCHEME. The Chancellor of the Exchequer and Mrs Lloyd George attended a pleasant function in the village of Dolwyddelen to-day week, when Mrs Lloyd George, in the presence of an enthusiastic gathering, opened a bazaar in aid of the Calvin- istic Methodist Chapel. The Methodist cause hero will always be associated with the name of the Rev. John Jones, of Talysarn, a prince of Welsh preachers, who was born in this romantic locality, and to whose memory the family erected two monuments. The connexional property is valued at C5000, and upon this rests a debt of something like £ 1000. The bazaar took place in the National School, which was crowded to its utmost capacity when the proceedings at the formal opening com- menced. The President (Mr William Jones, M.P.) spoke of the historical associations of the neighbour- hood, and drew a comparison between the peace- ful journey of the Welsh Chancellor of the Exchequer from Criccieth to Dolwyddelen that day, and that of Hywel, the then Lord of Cric- cieth Castle, on a mission of bloodshed, which drove the inhabitants to seek shelter in the mountain fortresses. He trusted they would e- perience a successful bazaar, and that they would realise a substantial sum towards the funds of the fine chapel they had erected. Mrs Lloyd George, to whom Mr Rhys Roberts, introduced as an old-age pensioner, handed a beautiful bouquet, then declared the bazaar open. She referred to Dolwyddelen as having created history in Welsh Methodist circles to an extent which had influenced not one, but all denomina- tions. She urged them to cultivate the spirit of brotherly love and good fellowship, of which, she was glad to say, she saw much evidence as she attended functions of that kind in various placcs in England and in Wales. She hoped that every Methodist present had brought with him a triend connected with some other denomination as he had brought her husband (laughter). ADDRESS BY THE CHANCELLOR. Mr Lloyd George, who was rceived with re- peated cheers, said that Mrs Lloyd George was there to see lie did not spend too much of his salary (laughter). He was there more especially to see the beautiful district, and in coming ha had traversed through scenery, around Capel Curig and Bettwsycoed, which he felt sure was unsurpassed on this earth. He was, therefore, not surprised at the large numbers of strangers who annually visited the neighoburhood from other countries. As to the bazaar and its ob- ject, he knew of the difficulties which must be experienced in maintaining places of worship in districts wliich depended so much on the success of the state of industry. Their financial respon- sibility had to be met, whether trade was brisk or otherwise, but it-was efforts of that kind tnat had made Wales. That neighbourhood in parti- cular demonstrated the perious periods which Wales had gone through. Let them take the hoary old Welsh castle close by. It was raised to defend the independence and liberties of the Welsh people. All the struggles against the op- pressions of the Norman centred in that locality. It was within a radius of twenty miles of that spot that all efforts made by the Welsh origi- nated and were stimulated, and it was there that they eventually returned. Snowdon—the castle which God raised in de- fence of a people's rights-kept history going in those days, and when one lived close to old castles one was apt to forget their history. fhe Dolwyddelen Castle must remind the inhabitants around of what their ancestors had sacrificed :ür centuries for the principles which distinguished man of the lower creations (cheers). That was the period in which the foundation of the Prin- cipality of Wales was laid. The Cottage of Tany- castell, also in the locality, introduced them to another period, a period of awakening, in which Wales began to have wider sympathies and MI expanding horizon. That period was still being continued. He did not think that they yet fully realised what Nonconformity had done for the character of Wales. It had given it the quality of steadiness, as well as prominence of purpose. No better sample of that could be furnished than the object of that bazaar. They had, at the risk of undertaking a heavy burden, raised a fine and commodious chapol, and though, for the most part, only a body of workingmen, as was the case with practically all chapels in Wales, they had kept their place of worship going through a period of severe depression, and were evidently determined upon keeping it going. A BESETTING DANGER. One of the besetting dangers of the Celtic character was its variableness. At least it ad been charged against the Welsh people that they could not persevere with a great purpose. Whe- ther it might be so or not, he claimed that the Nonconformists of Wales proved otherwise. Since John Jones, of Talysarn, there had been other Nonconformists, and he saw no prospects of that neighbourhood being left without its Noncon- formists from that day to the end of all things. in 11 Let them help one another. He was pleased to think that sectarian prejudice was dying out of the land. He and Mrs Lloyd George were able, to get along together very well (laughter). 'l'hy did not quarrel about the confession of faith 01 the water (laughter). He witnessed the spread of toleration throughout the country, but the death of bigotry need not of necessity mean the dis- appearance of sectarian zeal. He was for th3 Methodist to feel as zealous as he could for his own denomination as long as he did not traduco his brethren of other connexions. And the same applied to all Nanconformist sections, and h* thought it ¥light be a good thing if they couiii also teach the Church of England (laughter). OLD-AGE PENSIONS. Referring to the presence of the old pensioner who had handed Mrs Lloyd George a bouquet the right hon. gentleman said that the old-ago pensions had actually lengthened the days of people (laughter and hear, hear). The calculi- tion of his department had been falsified. More money was now required, because people lived older than they used to live before (laughter). They had hopelessly broken down the actuaries* tables, and had inspired them with fresh hop for the future. They now felt that they were gentlemen, with the wealth of the greatest L-iet richest Empire of the world behind them; and God speed them, he would say (cheers). They deserved it, after living an honest and sober life having given of their strength to their country. It was the business of the country to look ttter them (cheers). He hoped within the next twelve months to go oven further by formulating a scheme for securing for every workman through- out the country something that would keep them above want should they break down before reaching tho ago of seventy. Ho had, in lact, prepared the scheme, and had, he hoped, raised enough taxation to give it a start—(laughter),— and as a result he hoped that the allowance would be more than three shillings a week, a was the case in Germany (cheers). The promoter of that bazaar and he at the Chancellory were engaged in the same iaudable task of uplifting the poor and the bruised, and if they fell short of that task they would be like the unworthv servants of the Master. Cordial thanks were accorded Mr and Mrs IJoya George and Mr W. Jones, M.P., on the motion of the Rev. E. J. Griffiths. On the following day tho bazaar was opened by Mrs Rogers Jones, Mr J. D. Jones, solicitor, Llanrwst, being the president of the day. THE STALLHOLDERS. The stallholders were as follows Woolen Stall: Mrs J.
