Holyhead. PASSENGER TRAFFIC. — Notwithstanding the lateness of the season, large number of harvest- men continue to arrive at Hclyhead by rail, en route for their homes in Ireland. CONCERT. — On Tuesday evening, at the Town Hall, the St, Cybi Habitation of the Prim- rose League held a miscellaneous entertainment. t Songs and musical performances were rendered by a number of friends and members of the League. Mr J. E. Fincham, the provincial secretary for North Wales, delivered an address on the objects and work of the League. SUDDEN DEATH.-This week we have to record the sudden death of Mrs Carter, the wife of Mr Carter, chief officer of the coastguards. Mrs Carter was only ill for two days, and nothing serious was expected, so that her sudden demise came as a surprise to the entire neighbourhood. Mrs Carter was only 37 years of age, and leaves behind her a large number of young children. Mr Carter was recently promoted here from a rcoastguard station in the North of Ireland, to succeed Mr Murch, who has retired from the service on a pension. Mr Carter had, however, previously resided at Holyhead, and is well known and highly respected here. The deepest sympathy is felt for him in his sudden bereavement. The interment took place on Tuesday afternoon at the Maeshyfryd Cemetery. REMOVAL.—We learn with regret that Detective Inspector Perkins is about to be removed from Holyhead Railway Station to Crewe. Mr Perkins, during his residence, at Holyhead, has made a large circle of friends, and has interested himselt in local matters. He is a very popular vocalist, and his services as a comic singer were in great demand. Recently he has been endeavouring to promote the establishment bf a St. John's branch of the Ambulance Association, and it is to be hoped that, now he is leaving the neighbourhood, the matter will not be dropped as it is of great import- ance that in a town like Holyhead, with such an extensive railway and steamboat connection, men should be trained in ambulance work to meet the emergencies constantly arising. BAND OF HOPE MOVEMENT. — The English Presbyterian Band of Hope has just commenced operations for the ensuing session. Two lady presidents with two vice-presidents together with the other officers have been elected. This Band of Hope in the past has been a very flourishing one, but the promoters have been somewhat hampered for the want of adequate accommodation to carry on their operations. This year a large number of friendJ have volunteered to render assistance, and the workers are determined that this will be amoigt successful session. We are glad to learn that some other bands of hope in the town are also commencing their operations for the winter season. HYFRYDLE DEBATING SOCIETY.-At the above society, on Wednesday evening, Rev John Williams presiding, an interesting discussion took place on the Eastern Question. The majority of the speakers were of opinion that England was showing great apathy in regard to this burning question, and thought that active steps should at once be taken to depose the Sultan, and put an end to the atrocities in Constantinople and Armenia. ANNIVERSARY SERVICES^—The Welsh Wesleyans of !Gwynfe held their anniversary on Wednesday last, when the Rev E. B. Jones, Mount Pleasant, was the officiating minister.
