Opening of the Campaign. The long-expected mission of Mr. Evan Roberts in Anglesey started on Tuesday night at Amlwch. Great expectation had prevailed for many weeks, and the crowds began to collect together early in the afternoon. A number of police kept order. The meeting was held in Bethesda Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, the largest building in the town. Entrance was by tickets, care being taken that these should only be available for one night. The chapel will comfortably seat 850, but tickets were issued to fully 1,200 people, and many hundreds had to turn away disappointed. Services were held in the large schoolroom and the chapel simul- taneously. The meeting augurs well for the success of the mission throughout the island. The missioner entered about seven o'clock, accompanied by the Rev. T. Charles Williams, Menai Bridge, and the two lady evangelists, Miss Annie Davies and Miss Roberts. A prayer meeting had been going on for some two hours. It was a most remarkable service throughout. When Mr. Roberts entered a man was praying with great fervour on the gallery, and the excitement was intense. When he finished, the immense audience burst into Ymgrymmed pawb i lawr." Then there was a short period of perfect silence. The missioner stood up at once, and spoke with remarkable power on "Waiting upon God." It was a larger address than he generally gives, lasting half an hour, and the huge congregation was moved into loud rejoicing. It was one of the most effective addresses he has yet delivered. At the close Evan Roberts asked the con- gregation to join in the singing of "Arglwydd galw etto to the tune of Bryniau Cassia." Then Miss Davies sang Dyma Gariad fel y moroedd" with thrilling power. A wave of spiritual power, not surpassed by anything seen or felt in Liverpool or South Wales, at this point swept over all. It was a remarkable scene. The revivalist stood up afterwards and addressed the meeting. Then followed many verses of hymns. Mr. Roberts once more asked the congregation to sing Dewch hen ac ieuanc, dewch." The Rev. T. Charles Williams tested the meeting, and many gave themselves up.
