The Parish Church. Thanksgiving services for the ingathering of the harvest were held here on Thursday (English in the afternoon and Welsh in the evening) and were attended by large congre- gations. The services were remarkable for their bright and hearty nature, and the edifice had been beautifully decorated for the occasion. The special preacher was the Rev Meredith Hughes, Brynymaen, whose learned and able discourse was much appreciated. The Rev Evans-Jones (Vicar) also took part in the services, both of which were fully choral, the anthems "He shall go out with joy" being sung in the afternoon (the solo being rendered by Mrs Evans-Jones), and 0 Arglwydd mor lluosog i'w dy weithredoedd" in the evening, both of which works were most successfully rendered. Mr Joseph Thomas was at the organ. The collections through- out the day were on behalf of Home and Foreign Missions. The decorations had been carried out by Mrs Conwy (Bodryddan), Mrs Evans-Jones, Miss Trousdell, Mrs Evans (Kennels), Misses Stnbbs, Miss West, Miss S. E. Roberts, Miss Chadwick, Miss S. E. Roberts (Gover), Miss Lily Jones, Miss Alice Jones, and others.

In the morning the services were held in the Wesleyan Chapel, those taking part including Messrs R. Wil- liams, J. Williams (Hottia), W. Morgan, and R. Lewis. The afternoon service was held in the C.M. Chapel, being conducted by Messrs D. Davies, J. E. Hughes, J. Lloyd, and J. Williams (Bryn Estyn).

It was decided to com- mence the Preparatory Class on Tuesday evening. A room is being fitted up for the Cookery Class, the work being carried out under the direction of the Organizing Secretary of the Technical Instruction Committee.

Oct. 24th -Concert at 'Bryn Sion" Wesleyan Chapel.
LORD MOSTYN'S GARDEN PARTY. Favoured with glorious weather, the 580 invitations sent out to the Conservative party workers of the county brought to the park on Saturday an equal number of guests in response. The Mostyn brass band was present, playing various selections, and a large marquee was pitched in front of the hall in which tea was served. An open-air meeting was held on the terrace, Lord Mostyn presiding. In his speech, his Lordship said the opposite Party were now holding a council of war for an attack on the House of Lords. The Lords were not frightened (laughter). A great resolution had been fired by a big gun in the House of Commons. There had also been a great trumpet blast. The differ- ence between the blast which Joshua blew at the walls of Jericho and the trumpet blast of Sir Henry Campbell Bannerman was that the former threw down the walls, whilst the latter might possibly disturb the dust in the Parliamentary Chamber (laughter). He thought they all agreed that a second Chamber was necessary. No country would be safe without it (hear, hear). That chamber must have power to criticise bills sent to it from the Lower Chamber. Often these bills were sent to the Lords without having been thoroughly discussed, or after having been guillotined. Was the Upper House to pass these without being allowed to discuss or criticise them ? If that was to be the posi- tion of the House of Lords it would be in- tolerable, and they had better capitulate at once. He pointed out that during the last fifteen months twenty Radicals had been sent to the House of Lords, which guaranteed the safety of that institution. He did not sug- gest that the House of Lords was not in need of reform. A committee was now sitting to consider this matter, the deliberations of which, he hoped, would be carefully con- sidered by the Lords. Mr Harold Edwards, the Conservative can- didate for Flintshire, spoke on the danger of Socialism. He said the future of the Con- servatives depended on the workers energy, keenness, and self-sacrifice would certainly prove successful in the end. To-day every man who owned a little land was in danger of losing it, and everv man who had a little business was in danger of having it taken away for the benefit of the lazy and incom- petent. This danger was not imaginary. It was the duty of the people he had mentioned to defend themselves and their property. They were not alarmed, but they could not ignore the threatening danger of the present age. Referring to the aim and object of the Socialistic movement, the speaker remarked all of them desired to improve the lot of the less fortunate. As Conservatives it was well for them to realise that social reform must be an important part in future legislation, but they must check the pace rather than alter the destination. Most Social Reforms of this century had been initiated by the Conserva- tive Government—the party was prepared to move with the times. The danger of Socialism lay in its methods which were unwise, and, unless changed, would lead to national bankruptcy and disaster. The Con- servative party alone could hope to cope with the danger and guide it into more wholesome channels.

The Late Mr. Owen Owens, TANYOLASDIR, FFYNNONGROEW, whose death was referred to in these columns last week. The funeral took place on Satur- day, and was attended by a large number of mourners. The interment was in Llanasa Cemetery. At the meeting of the Llanasa Parish Council on Monday, Mr Thomas Roberts referred to the death of Mr Owen Owens, who had been a member of the Council since it was formed, with the exception of twelve months. This year Mr Owens had been appointed vice-chairman, and from the com-1 mencement of the Council he had been one of the most useful and faithful members. He was a man who was able to form an opinion upon most subjects, and having done so would not be carried away by any side issues. He (Mr Roberts) moved a vote of condolence be passed with the bereaved family. This was seconded by Mr Edward Thomas, and carried unanimously. The Chairman and several of the members also spoke most highly of the character of their late colleague. .+-

Wynne, and Miss L. Hughes. Boiler Messrs Evan Jones, T. Jones, and 0. Hughes. Doors Messrs R. T. Williams, and W. E. Wynne. The concert commenced at 7 p.m., but before that time, the chapel was thronged with ticket holders, and extra seats had to be introduced to supplement the accommodation. The president of the meeting was Mr E. Williams (Patagonia), the conductor Mr R. O. Williams (Cymro Cybi), Rhyl, and the accompanist Mr W. Nuttall, L.L.C.M. There was also present Mr J. R. Hughes, M.A, Holywell. The proceedings opened by singing a hymn, after which a number of artistes contributed to the programme, which was as follows :— Solos, Misses E. A. Roberts (Mostyn), K.

LLANASA PARISH COUNCIL A meeting of the Llanasa Parish Council was held on Monday night. Present, Coun- cillors H. Hughes (chairman), Thos. Jones, David Jones, Dr Owen, J. Roberts, Thomas Evans (Axton), Edward Thomas, G. Pierce, Thos. Evans (Gronant), Thos. Hughes Mr 0. W. Ellis (Assistant Overseer), and the Clerk. DEATH OF MR OWEN OWENS. The minutes of the previous meeting having been read and confirmed, Mr Thomas Roberts referred to the vacancy which had occurred since the last meeting through the death of Mr Owen Owens. It was decided to fill the vacancy at the next meeting. 0 APPOINTMENT OF MANAGER FOR GWESPYR SCHOOL. A letter was read from the Rev. D. Meurig Jones, stating that owing to his removal from the parish, that he resolved to resign his position as representative of the Council on the Management Committee of the Gwespyr School. It was resolved on the motion of Dr Owen, and seconded by Mr G. Thomas, that a vote of thanks be passed to Mr Jones for his valuable services us manager for the last three years. The Chairman proposed, and Mr Thos. Jones seconded, that Mr Albert Jones (Gwespyr) be appointed to fill the vacancy. BERTHENGAM. It was resolved that the District Council Inspector be asked to clean out the Well at Newmarket and have the water gauged, and if plentiful to have the same analysed. It was stated that water was never so scarce in this district as it is at the present time. It is such that people have been compelled to go to the different wells at three o'clock in the morning. Most of the existing wells are dry, and the inhabitants have to go a long distance for their supply. BUILDING OF SCHOOLS. Dr Owen proposed, and Mr Ed. Thomas seconded, that an application be made to the Board of Education for a contribution towards the building of the schools in the parish from the fund ( £ 100,000) which have been put aside for that purpose. SCARCITY OF WATER IN THE PARISH. Complaints were received from Gronant, Penyffordd, and Bertheugam, as to the scarcity C) I of water in their districts. These complaints have been brought forward many times, but have been deferred for some reason or other, the chief reasons being the difficulty of obtain- ing a source of water to supply each place. A meeting of the Parochial committee with the Chairman and Clerk of the District Coun- cil was held at Gronant many months ago, to consider a scheme for supplying water for upper Gronant, from the level in the lower part of the village. The Inspector was requested to prepare a plan and estimate for carrying out the work. This was duly brought before the different Councils, but it was deci- ded to postpone the final decision upon them, pending the report of the Inspector upon a spring which had been discovered in Newmar- ket, and which it was thought at the time would be strong enough to supply Berthengam, Axton, and Gronant. Since then fears are entertained that this spring would not be sufficient to supply Gronant. Such being the case it was proposed by Mr Thos. Hughes (Gronant) and seconded by Mr Thos. Hughes, that the District Council be asked to take the matter up at once, which was carried. In connection with the scarcity at Pen-y- ffordd a committee was appointed to inquire into the matter, when it was resolved that they should ask Mr Pownall whether he was prepared to sell his water works at Penyffordd. A reply was received and read at the meeting stating that he was prepared to dispose of it, and would be pleased to meet the Council to confer further on the matter. It was proposed by Mr Ed. Thomas and seconded by Mr T. Hughes that all the members of the Council should meet on the spot to inspect the place- and report to the next meeting.
