Visit of Rev. E. Lloyd Jones. Posters are being displayed about the town announcing a popular lecture on Oliver Cromwell by the Rev. E. Lloyd Jones, at the Town Hall next Thursday.

Mr John Cunnah is announced to preside.
Our Local Parliament j BY A RATEPAYER. < Our local rulers meet next Wednesday under altered conditions. Three new members make their appearance, and to some extent these hold views somewhat distinct from the, former members. This circumstance will give rather more interest than usual to the first meeting of the re-formed Council. The election of chairman, too, wiil cause some room for speculation. As the ratepayers have shown their wishes by returning an "Independent" at the head of the poll it may reasonably be expected that the coun- cillors will be imbued with the same spirit, and act independently of party in choosing their head for the ensuing year. The chair- man has more influence than is sometimes imagined, and in the present instance rate- payers are inclined to take an intelligent in- terest in the appointment, and, if need be, to criticise it. It seems probable that a determined effort will be made in certain quarters to obtain great publicity for the sayings and doings of the Council. To accomplish this object a limitation in the numbers comprising the various Committees is the most effective means* of securing the required result. This course Itads to discussion by members who are not upon any particular committee, and a defence of the recommendations by those who are upon it, and responsible for the decisions arrived at. This leads to the pros and cons being stated publicly, and individual opinions, being known. The ratepayers can ,thpn.' spot" the one who dares to,express, unpopular opinions. In a general way, bow- ever, it might be supposed that the ratepayers- would have more confidence in their represen- tatives, as they would be conversant with the difficulties which have to be -overco^ The meeting next week may. also have certain reports and recommendations from the new Surveyor. This is usually ihe case after the appointment of new officers, and as the^ present one comes from an i up-to-date town where everything is trim and m'order, it is probable that suggestions may be''made which, it is hoped, may greatly improve; the general welfare of the town without incurring much, if any, extra expenditure. It will be the duty of the Council to weigh .well' any of y r) these hints which might tend to the improve- ment of the town. At the meeting, too, soine information • will of necessity be given a,H "to to llie financial position of-the as the receipts have come tip to, fallen b«low, or exceeded the estimates formed nearly a year ago.: .The same interest will also apply4o. the expendi- ture estimated, and that actually incurred. It is expected that the positions :will be found to have improved in the last month, or two.
TALACRE, SOCIALISM. To the Editor of the Prestatyn Weekly." Dear Sir,—I do not intend to enter into the controversy respecting Talacre Schools, but cannot let Mr P. Colohan's remarks re- garding Socialism pass without attempting to, refute them, lie several times in his letter couples the terms Inndelity and Socialism" as though they were synonymous, and that both were antagonistic to Christianity.Now the desire of Socialists is co-operation for the;, common good, the only wish being to improve the social conditions of the whole people, and to abolish as far as possible all preventable suffering and want. Iheyjdo not: wi»li>5}djf-Afc commonly asserted, Government to do every- thing for them, but what' they do wantj. is to be given the opportunity of doing for, themselves. If this is ante-Christian, then I for one do not understand Christian teaching. Socialists number in their ranks many clergymen of all denominations, including Roman Catholic. Mr Colohan's figures regarding religion in France, in which country he practically says there are no infidels, are manifestly absurd, as anyone having the slightest knowledge of the country can easily testify.—Apologising for troubling you, I beg to still remain, A SOCIALIST.
Driving Accident. Shortly after 5 p.m. on, Saturday, Mr and Mrs Morgan, of Nant Cottage, met with an accident near Stanley House, when "returning home in their dog-cart, but fortunately the consequences were not so serious as at first surmised. Where the accident occurred the road is very narrow, and as a result of the pony shying just,when passing another con- veyance, the cups of the wheels came into contact, Mrs Morgan being thrown out of the trap. She was carried to one of the cottages near by, in an unconscious condition, where Dr. Williams rendered assistance. Mr Morgan escaped unhurt, and after a short time Mrs Morgan was sufficiently recovered: to be re- moved home, her injuries being no more serious than bruises.
Prestatyn Council. The annual meeting will be held on Wed- nesday next, when the business will include the election of a chairman for the ensuing year. ■■■
Holiday Prospects. Many of those who have summer residences in Prestatyn are already in evidence, and there is every prospect of there being a goodly number of visitors here during the Easter holidays, a considerable quantity of advance luggage having arrived. There are no extra attractions here for Easter, but we doubt not many will be glad to avail themselves of an opportunity of enjoying nature unadorned at Prestatyn. At the time of writing the w. ather is delightfully fine, and has been so for many days. Tennis Club Concert. At the Town Hall on Saturday evening a concert was held in connection with the Prestatyn Lawn Tennis Club. Dr Tudor Griffiths was announced to preside, but was unavoidably prevented from putting in an appearance, Mr W. Marshall kindly stepping in to fill the gap. The programme was ,mainly sustained by professional artistes from a distance, assisted by Miss F. Jewell, Miss F. Burt, and Mr F. Nicholson; The arrange- ments were carried out by Mr Herbert Hughes, Bank House, the quality of the concert being worthy of a larger audience, r v Sale of Work at Trinity Church. The ladies of the work society intend on Thursday next to hold their annual sale of the numerous articles of clothing and other goods, botli useful and ornamental, which are the result of the winter session's work, when it is hopeel a large number of ready purchasers will, be found. A musical programme and other attractive items will contribute to the success of the occasion. The sale will be opened at 3 o'clock by Miss Sharman of "Sheffield. The object of the annual sales is primarily to obtain funds for the maintenance of a bed m "the woman's hospital in Shantung, N. China. Any overplus is retained towards a nucleus for a new church which it is hoped to erect in the future. Choral Society. Among the soloists engaged for the per- formance of the "Messiah is Miss Annie Nelson, of, the Queen's Hall (London) Promenade Concerts. Miss Nelson is a great favourite at the Llandudno and Colwyu Bay Pier Concerts, arid wilf doubtless prove an attraction at our Choral Society's forth- coming annual concert. 1 Rehoboth Church. The organ and vocal recital which is to be held on Good Friday evening, will doubtless attract n:iärí)' both visitors: and residents. The vocalists on this occasion are Miss Louie James and Mr Frank Nicholson—both first class Soloists. Two membera_of the Liverpool Orchestral Society, Messrs Adolf Vaethe and Arthur E. Dodd, have arranged respectively tùgive violin and'cello solos, whilst the well- known Professor D.D. Parry, will preside at the organ. Official Appointment. ■Mr Joseph Williams, auctioneer, has been appointed by the Commissioner of Income Tax as collector for the Prestatyn district, instead of Mr Frank Jewell, who has resigned [the office. Mr Joseph Williams has held a like position at Rhyl for several years, and, baying opened an office at Stafford Buildings, Prestatyn, has excellent facilities for discharg- ing the. duties. Railway Facilities—A Joke. A mid-Flintshire correspondent writes It is rumoured in current circles that a mid- air railway scheme is contemplated by a few influential Flintshire gentlemen. It will be known as the Tin Pot Railway," and it is suggested that it should be, constructed in order to suit the conveniences of the midland inhabitants of the county. The pro-tem manager of the Thinking Department of the undertaking will, it is understood, be a well-known member of the County Council. Sale at Pehdyffryn. On Wednesday Messrs. Frank Jewell & Co. successfully conducted a sale of the furniture at this well-known Meliden residence. The view day was Tuesday, and many were the feet that wended their way thither in search of household requirements. The house stands in a most delightful position, and is, we believe, to be let.

The Education Bill. Whatever may be the merits of this great measure which passed its first reading on Monday night, there can be but one opinion as to the speech delivered by Mr Birrell in introducing it, and that is that it will rank among the very finest speeches ever delivered in the House of Commons on such an occa- sion. The Bill dealt with some thorny and difficult problems, and Mr Birrell proved himself to be thorough mister of his subject. The Bill is an honest, skilful, and pains- taking endeavour to solve a difficult problem. The main proposals are that no public money is to be spent on denominational instruction, and that attendance will be compulsory oIly during the hours of secular teaching. Other features of the Bill are that it adopts the system of devolution, abolishes religious tests for teachers, and will give full opportunity in all the schools of the country to teach the children the religion of their parents. It also provides for a Council of Education in Wales. It may be strongly opposed, but there is very little doubt it will be carried through the House with large majorities. Vesuvius Ablaze. As a result of the terrible eruption of the last few days it is estimated that 120,000 people have fled from the region being devas- tated by the lava and ashes. Five inches of

Old Age Pensions. The Labour Party, Trade Unionist Group, and imny of the advanced Liberals are do. termined alike to press forward the question of Old Age Pensions in the present Parlia- ment. A Committee, drawn from all.. th$ sections named has been 1. formed, and, it is stated, no stone will be left unturned to secure the serious attention of the Government. No less than three old age pension bills have actually been introduced by private members this session. ■ \;v'
