Cymru am Byth! Mr. Lloyd George has been the recipient of many congratulations on his great achieve- ment in settling the dispute between the railway employers and employed. Some go so far as to predict for him the highest posi- tion in the legislature, as a result of the series of brilliant successes ascribed to his personality
Hard on the Lawyers. It is a significant fact that in the settle- ment of the railway dispute one of the features to be noted is that no counsel are to be em- ployed by the Conciliation Board. This stipulation coming from Mr Lloyd George- himself a lawyer-speaks volumes as to the unwisdom of employing the legal profession in the settlement of disputes.
The Men's Point of View. There is no doubt that the amicable settle- ment just consummated will bring with it a feeling of great relief to many thousands of men throughout the country. Workers who have been perhaps half a lifetime in one em- I ploy would find the sending in of their notice a matter for very serious consideration.
Under the Hammer. It is stated that one of the most valuable pieces of land in High Street, Prestatyn, will, before this year is out, be offered for sale by auction. Capitalists and builders will find here scope for their enterprise which they have hitherto been slow to grasp.
The Choral Society. A very good beginning was made on Wed- nesday, when a large number (over 50) of old and new members assembled to the first rehearsal of the season. In point of numbers the bass seems to be particularly strong, whilst on the other hand tenor and contralto could do with perhaps a little augmentation. Additional recruits to the membership will be heartily welcomed.
A New Sub Post Office. A notice to the following effect appears in the window of the Post Office "An office for the transaction of money order, savings bank, postal order, and general post office business will shortly be opened in Victoria Park Road," and applications are invited for the position of sub-postmaster. This will certainly be good news for residents in this growing neighbourhood, for although it has been possible to purchase stamps in the vicinity it is certainly a long way to have to come to High Street to transact other postal business.
Amateur Theatricals. The enthusiasm which prevailed amongst the members of the local Amateur Dramatic Society last year is still very much in evidence, at any rate this was the impression derived from the annual meeting which took place at Hopwood's Cafe on Tuesday evening, when there was a large attendance. The balance sheet (which was adopted) shewed that there was a sum of over zC5 in hand. The election of officers resulted in Mr C. L. Roberts being appointed chairman, with Mr J. R. Tickle as vice Mr George Linnell was re-appointed treasurer, and the secretarial duties were undertaken by the indefatigable Mr Inglefield, Mr F. Walmsley being elected auditor. A desire to at once get into working order was manifested, and most of the old members were re-enrolled with the addition of some new talent. A selection committee was appointed, and arrangements are being made for a per- formance before Christmas, when probably two pieces will be produced, one of which has already been provisionally selected: a delightfully humorous comedy written by the well-known Sydney Grundy.
Going Abroad. The Dramatic Society is about to lose one of its valued members in the person of Mr T. E. Hughes, who is shortly leaving for New Zealand, and at their meeting the other even- ing the Amateurs shewed their appreciation of Mr Hughes' services by presenting him with an an engraved silver matchbox. Mr Inglefield, Mr C. L. Roberts, Mr T. Griffiths, and Mr J. W. Williams testified to the popular- ity of Mr Hughes, and wished him every success in the new country. Mr Hughes feelingly acknowledged the gift, and spoke of the happy time he had spent with the mem- bers of the Society.
The Alleged Obstruction on the Sandhills. Deputations from Prestatyn, Rhyl, Meliden, Dyserth. and Rhuddlan, met at the Rhyl Town Hall on Tuesday, to consider what steps should be taken in regard to the alleged obstruction on the sandhills between Pres- tatyn and Rhyl, and in connection with which there has been considerable communi- cation between the authorities concerned. The outcome of the meeting has not been made public, but important developments may be expected at an early date. The Prestatyn Council was represented by Mr Scott, J.P. (chairman), Mr Thos. Jones, J.P., the Clerk, and Surveyor.
How to Live Long. The chairman of the Holywell Board of Guardians states that the oldest people in the Union are those who are on the parish. There are 27 persons in receipt of out-relief whose average age works out at 77 years.
The Preaching Meetings of Horeb Wesleyan Chapel were held on Sunday last, when powerful sermons were given by the Revs. E. Mostyn Jones, W. Price (St. Asaph), and R. Garrett Roberts (Ruthin). All the services were well-attended. Free Health Lectures for the People. The second annual series of Pleasant and Instructive Sunday Atfernoon Lectures will commence on Sunday next, at Dr. Smith's, "Drakelow," Victoria Road. First Lecture :— The Gospel of Health." All are welcome. No collection. Bring your notebooks. "Keep thyself pure (healthy).l Tim. 5. 22.

CHRIST CHURCH LITERARY SOCIETY. Inaugural Conversazione. The above Society entered upon its fourth session on Thursday evening, when the gathering took the form of a conversazione. The Church Room, which presented a pleasing and inviting appearance, was quite full, and those present spent a very enjoyable time. After refreshments had been partaken of a miscellaneous programme was gone through, contributed to by Miss Howe, Misses Selkirk, Mr Lloyd Jones, Rhyl (encored), Mr F. Nicholson, Gwespyr (encored) and Mr Staples. On the proposition of the Vicar a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the artistes, and also the Ladies' Committee (consisting of Miss Davies, Vicarage, Miss Davies, Fern Bank, Mrs J. W. Williams, Mrs E. T. Williams, and Miss Linnell) for the excellent manner in which the company had been entertained. During the evening nearly 90 members were enrolled. The next meeting will be held on the 19th inst., when Mr R. Rydderch, H.M.I.S. (Rhyl) will give a paper on The Habits of Birds."
Bethel" Literary Society. The first session of this meeting was held on Tuesday, when there was a large attendance. Addresses were delivered by several officers of the Society, including the Rev E. Mostyn Jones, Mr Peter Ellis, and Mr Edward Davies. At next week's meeting the subject discussed will be Sunday sermons, led by Messrs T. li. Roberts and Yori Williams.
Church Necessities. The Horeb Mutual Improvement Society held its meeting on Tuesday night, when the topic discussed was The chief necessities of the Church to-day." Addresses were given by the Chairman (Mr Thomas Williams), Mrs Jane Jones, Messrs Robert Williams, T. H. Thomas, Robt. Thomas, and J. E. Parry. The chief need which the majority of the speakers thought was neces- sary for the spiritual welfare of the Church, was Brotberliness," the opinion being expressed that there was too little friendliness and too much petty jealousy among church members. It was also thought that there should be more work done in the visitation of members at their homes, and encouraging them to remain faithful to the cause. On Monday next there will be a debate on Should Ministers take part in public and political matters ?"
Rehoboth Literary Society. Last Monday's meeting took the form of a debate on Should the Government interfere in matters of dispute between master and and man ?" The Rev. Ezra Jones presided. The debate was opened by Mr H. R. Hughes on the affirmative side, and by Mr R. J. Williams on the negative. The following also took part Messrs G. W. Jones, Griffith Eames, Morris Dowell, T. Eames, and it. Davies. The two sides were about equally supported, and the debating was, on the whole, good. The meetings in future will be held on Mondays at 7-30, it being deemed well to change the night in the interests of the Choral Society. A prize essay will be read by Mr Wm. Davies at the next meeting.
Constitutional Club. The energetic committee that so successfully carried out the arrangements for the dramatic performance last week have since met, and a draft balance sheet was submitted. The financial result exceeded all expectations, and the house was one of the best yet secured in Prestatyn, the total receipts amounting to about tBO. It was felt that the committee had every reason to congratulate themselves, and the result proved what could be accomplished by good organization and energy. A substantial balance to the good is spoken of, and there is every indication that before long the adverse balance under which the Club has been labouring for some time will be wiped off.
Socialism. Arrangements have been made for a series of addresses to be delivered at the Constitu- tional Club during the winter, and the first will be given at an early date by Mr H. A. Tilby (Rhyl), the subject to be dealt with being Socialism."
Reported Attempted Suicide. Some excitement was created in the neigh- bourhood when the report became current that Thomas Price, a farm bailiff, residing at Talfryn, Llanasa, had attempted to commit suicide by cutting his throat on Saturday. Price is in a very precarious condition, and his recovery is said to be improbable.
Alleged Burglar. At Llanrwst on Monday, Moses Davies, a young man 20 years of age, following the occupation of a hairdresser, was brought up on a charge of feloniously entering a residence at Llanrwst on Oct. 21st., and stealing there- from a ring, a brooch, 30/- in money, and various other articles. Prisoner pleaded not guilty. It transpired in evidence that Davies had been employed as a hairdresser in Prestatyn during last summer, but he left here on August Bank-holiday. He was com- mitted to the Quarter Session to be held at Ruthin in January, and no application being made for bail was removed in custody.
P.S.A. MOVEMENT AT TRINITY CHURCH. The first Pleasant Sunday Afternoon at Trinity Church proved to be a very helnful and well-attended meeting. Mr E. Pitchford gave an outline of the object of the movement, one of which was to lend a helping hand to members in need. Dr Townsend, as chairman, made an interesting speech, stating that these meetings had originated in anony- mous letters which had been sent to him urging that a gathering of this description be started. The appeal was not to be resisted, and so a commencement had been made. During the afternoon Miss Daisy Yeoman and Mr H. Jones gavo solos.
Lecture on Tennyson. This very instructive and interesting event came off last Friday, Mr E. Pitchford being the lecturer. After giving a short biography of the poet, Mr Pitchford spent the remainder of the time at his disposal with a study of Tennyson as a Christian teacher, giving many extracts from his works as illustrations. Portion of the poet's works were also effectively sung and recited by Miss Daisy Yeoman, Miss Jessie Jones, Mr Gordon Pitchford, and a glee party. The next meeting will be to-night (Friday) when Mr F. Gilbert Smith will lecture on My Friend the Insect."
Social at Trinity Church, The first of the winter series of social evenings promoted in connection with Trinity Church was a conspicuous success from every point of view. There was a large company present at the invitation of Mrs Townsend, and after tea a most entertaining programme was gone through, consisting of items contri- buted by the Ladies' Orchestra, Miss Wright, Misses Yeoman, Miss Jessie Jones, Miss F. Jewell, Miss Partington, Mr B. Partington, and a reading by Dr Townsend, who also presided over the proceedings.
SOCIAL TEA AND CONCERT. On Thursday a social tea and concert was held at the Welsh Congregational Church, given by Messrs Trevor Roberts (Bod Hyfryd) and D. Hughes (Greenwich House). The room had been beautifully decorated by the ladies of the church, and there was an excel- lent gathering. The following were in charge of the tables Mrs Lloyd Jones (Pharmacy), Mrs T. Williams (Bradford House), Mrs E. Jones (Rosslyn Terrace) and Mrs Trevor Roberts, these were assisted by the lady- members of the church and others. The concert was presided over by Council- lor John Cunnah, and was conducted by the Rev Ben Williams. The following took part in the programme:—Miss Bessie Evans (Dyserth), Miss Dorothy Roberts, Miss A. B. Roberts and Miss Jones (Mostyn), Mr Trevor Roberts, Mr T. H. Jones, and Mr G. W. Jones (accompanist). The Rev. Ben Williams proposed votes of thanks to the President and the artistes for the valuable services they had rendered, mentioning that Mr Cunnah had handed him a very generous gift in the form of a cheque towards their cause. Thanks were also due to Mr Roberts and Mr Hughes for the ex- cellent social tea they had given to the ladies for their service at the tables, to Mr and Mrs Fred Lloyd for the loan of the piano, and to all who had helped them to make the social such a great success. The vote of thanks was seconded by the Rev. John Lewis. The social realised the sum of C5 16/6d.
DEATH OF MR. T. A. PERRY. Father of Lady Mostyn of Talacre. The sympathy of the district will be exten- ded to Lady Mostyn and the family at Talacre upon the death of her father, Thos. A. Perry, Esq., D.L.. High Sheriff of War- wickshire. which took place at his residence, Bitham House, Avon Dassett, Leamington, in the early hours of Monday last. Mr Perry had been ill for some time past, and his demise was therefore not unexpected. The funeral takes place to-day (Friday).
The New School. Efforts are being made to have the ceremony of laying the foundation stone of this building on Saturday next, November 16th, when Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P., Mr Summers, and other prominent gentlemen in the county are expected to take part in the proceedings.
Plans Approved. At a meeting of the Holywell Rural Dis- trict Council, plans were submitted and approved for the erection of a bungalow at Gwaenysgor. It was stated the building would be constructed of concrete blocks and composition, and the Clerk pointed out this was not in conformity with the Council's bye-laws.
