Rhuddlan Parish Council, MONTHLY MEETINC. RURAL DISTRICT COUNCILLORS ON THEIR DEFENCE. MONDAY.—Present Messrs Win. Morris (chairman), Wm. Jones (vice-chairman). C W Jones, iL- C Envon, J.P., Thus. Hughes. Jos. Roberts,, Thos. Williams, H Barnett, H Edwards. W Conwy Bnl, J.P., and the Rev D G Lewis, with the Clerk (Mr Jaa. Kilner). Coetia Postol Road. Tn answer to an enquiry by Mr Envon, the Chairman said that the Rural District Coun- cil had decided to repair the tootpath along Coetia Postol Road. Round Robin Recalled. A letter was read from Mr A Foulkes, the Kinmel estate a^ent, statin that he was not aware that Mr Hughes of Kinmel's tenants had complained of the state of the path from the Marsh Hotel to Vine Cottages. Mr C W Jones They dare not. Mr Bell said that this matter recalled a round robin sent in to the Parish Council some five or six years ago by the whole of the Marsh tenantry, representing both the Kinmel and Bodelwyddan estates, praying that steps should be taken to improve the road. He suggested that the Clerk look up that petition and remind the estates of it. The suggestion was agreed to. 1 Z5 The Sewerage Works Mr Hughes again on the Warpath. Mr Hughes, in accordance with notice, moved that the Rural District Council be called upon to furnish the Parish Council with a full statement of accounts in connec- tion- with the new drainage works. He wanted the Parish Council to be given a fair and accurate account of the money spent on the town drainage. He felt that as they, the ratepayers, and their successors, had to bear the burden, they were entitled to know the cost, and for the same to be kept in their books. They did. years ago. obtain such an account of the old drain expenditure but there wa9 no record of it in their books. He would ask for full details of everything, the money obtained, how paid, the term of years, &c., the amount of the engineer's bill, what was paid to the contractor, to the clerk of work, &c. He proposed that. Mr Enyon thought the motion a little premature. With three members of the Parish Council on the Rural District Council, surely they could rely upon being fully informed when the time was ripe. Some of the drains were yet hardly finished. Mr C W Jones seconded the motion. Rural District Councilors on their Defenoe. The Chairman denied that everything which came before the Rural District Coun- cil from the Parish Council was trodden underfoot. So far as hi3 experience went all matters had received every consideration. It must be remembered that the Rural District Council did not consist only of the three representatives from Rhuddlan, and that if they commenced indulging one locality they would have to extend that treatment from one end of the district to the other. The motion having been carried, Mr Bell remarked that they would not get the state- & y ment for some time. The District Council had not yet received accounts of all claims in connection with the scheme. He thought the District Council had behaved very well to Rhuddlan, in fact better than to any other parish since he had been a member of that body. Although he said it himself, lie thought that the Rhuddlan representatives on the District Council had done their duty to their constituents quite as well as anybody else could have done. They had sometimes to fight hard for what they wanted, but they generally got what they asked for. However, it seemed the lot of some people iiever to be satisfied. Road Matters. Mr Thos Hughes called attention to the state of the road from the Vicarage wall to the Independent Chapel. The people who attended the latter were, throughout the winter, up to half their snoes in mud, though they paid rates as much as publicans and shop keepers, for whom the County Council took care to clean roads every Saturday. The drains required better supervision at the place mentioned, which caused the chapel to be damp. The trustees would soon be claiming damages. The Chairman said that the state of the road was discussed at the last meeting of I the District Council, when it was decided to write to the sewerage works contractorp, Messrs Sheffield and Evans, calling upon I them to put things in order at once. Mr C W Jones asked—What about the offer of the County Council to do the work if the District Council would give them ji-5 ? The Chairman—We have heard nothing about that. It must have been made since our last meeting. Mr Barnett said he had given notice of his intention of making some comments on the state of Rhyl Road m the hope of find- ing out who was really responsible for cleaning it. It had not been scraped for the last ten weeks, and many a time he had en- countered mud and water over his boot tops. They paid a rate of lOd in the £ to the County Council, and he would like to know what they got for that rate. Application had been made to the County Council to repair with chippings the paths of the two roads under their control, but it had simply been ignored. He could not see where they got any return for their lOd in the £ and he suggested that they should become passive registers. He gave the District Council credit for having attended to the paths under their control. The Rhyl Road paths had been in a disgraceful condition all the winter, and it was not perhaps to be wondered at considering that one man had to look after cons I I eight miles. Mr C W Jones submitted that it was not more than six miles, and said he had always thought that two men looked after that length. Any way, if any letter sent to the County Council had not been answered, he would inquire into the matter. Mr Bell asked whether the Main Road Inspector was supposed to call this way occasionally, or whether his duties kept him entirely within the Mold and holywell dis- trict, for he was scarcely ever seen in this locality. Mr C W Toues-I have seen him here three times during the year. A Cood Word for the Roadman. Mr Bell-Only by appointment. Mr Bell went on to say that he had written to Mr Lloyd asking him to lay down a load of chippings along Penlon footpath, but he had never had the decency to answer. He questioned if at this the most important time of the year, so far as repairing work was concerned, one man was sufficient for the district, especially after the laying of the new drains. To give David Davies his due, there was not a more conscientious workman to be found, but he had been considerably handicapped by the increasing infirmity of Jno Davies, who had at last retired on account of his old age. The least they could expect from the County Council was the same attention they gave to other dis- tricts. Whenever he wrote to Mr Sam Evans he always got a most courteous reply. Mr C W Jones said that perhaps the con- dition of the footpaths was largely due to smashing by carts. Any way the road to Rhyl was going to be taken in hand as soon as the steam roller was available. He thought that three men should have charge of the district in winter, and he was surprised to learn that only one man had lately had all that work to do. Mr Bell Two good men would be enough. Mr C W Jones promised to do what he could to hasten the work, adding that it was h 0 two months after time already. Parish Meeting. The annual parish meeting was fixed for C5 Monday the 26th inst, at 7-30 p.m. An Economioal Clerk. The Clerk presented a bill of expenses for the past year, amounting to £111s Id, which included 5s for an audit stamp. Modest as the bill was, the Vice-chairman disputed the liability of the Council for an item of 18 for I posting certain papers in connection with St Asaph County School. He thought the Clerk ought to apply for that sum to the person who furnished him with the papers. He felt sure the auditor would not allow it. Mr Bell, in proposing that the full amount be paid, said that the shilling in question might soon become two by quibbling. The bill was passed. Lighting Committee. The Council having resolved themselves into a Lighting Committee, a discussion took place as to when street lighting should be discontinued. n Mr Bell proposed that they continue the lighting of the lamps till after the parish meeting, otherwise they might get pitched into (laughter). It was decided to continue the lighting till the end of the month. ZD

The Education Question. Church people are either silent or disunited on the policy they mean to stand by in the coming struggle. On the Education question they have in a great measure, in Wales, allow- ed their case to go by default. In hundreds of parishes the law is misrepresented most grossly without a single voice to traverse the misrepresentations. On the other hand the Roman Catholics are united and most active in stating their case, whilst the Secularists are working quietly to gain the triumph of their principles. Some of the freethinkers are quite fair to the Church, as witness the fol- lowing letter of Mr J Allanson Picton, Penmaenmawr, a Unitarian, and a Radical member of the Carnarvonshire Education Committee: I am as grateful as any of the Rev J Hirst Hollowell's admirers of his unanswer- able demonstration that we do pay the cost of the Catholic atmosphere' in Catholic schools and of the Anglican atmosphere' in Anglican schools. But oh! why will he weaken his argument by drawing an unten- able distinction between such cases and that of the simple Bible' school ? He says the Bible is not a creed.' But surely the teacher who gives a lesson in it believes and teaches one of the three beliefs about it. He holds, and if he is honest must teach, either (1) that it is wholly divine—' the word of God or (2) that it is wholly human, and therefore to he treated like any other book or (H) that it is part divine and part human. Does Mr Hirst Hollowcll really mean that as a rate- payer I have nt). rigbt to know which of the three beliefs I am going to pay for, and if I may not object to my money being used to propagate one of these three beliefs—should it happen to be the one I do not liold,-tlien why in the name of justice should I be allow- ed to object to paying for the Catholic or Anglican atmosphere ? It is of no use to say that theories of the Bible are not discus- sed in simple Bible teaching.' -No; but they are implied and the lessons are given in accordance therewith." One correspondent writes as follows:— I confine myself to solving the Nonconform- ist difficulty as to why Catholics will not agree to patting the Bible unexplained into the hands of their children in the schools. The reason is-it is an assertion of the first principle of protestantism, the principle of private judgment. A study of the history of the Church will show that, to a great extent, it is the history of conflicts between the Church on one hand and heresies on the other; of the Church insisting on her infallible and therefore authoritative teaching in matters of faith and morals, and heresy rejecting her infallible authority, thereby establishing the principle of private judgment. The prin- ciple of infallible authority, for a long period subconscious and expressed chiefly in acts, was at length formulated by the Church in the last Vatican Council. The principle of private judgment, at first also subcon- scious and expressed chiefly in acts, was ul- timately formulated in the Reformation and expressed by the word Protestantism." This is not the place to prove the Catholic principle. It suffices that Catholics are con- vinced of its truth. I simple state it for the enlightenment of Nonconformists. It is the first principle of Catholic religious instruc- tion.
OIC BY USING Q SYMINGTONS [BDjOQ™
The Press. I The March number of the Strand Magazine is one of the freshest" productions we have yet received. The ever varying attractivenesss of its articles and the high standard of its fiction rightly place this periodical at the head of our British monthlies. Sir A Conan Doyle gives a long and powerful instalment of his new novel, "Sir Nigel," and, needless to say, the dramatic interest of this noteworthy serial is maintained with all the skill for which the creator of (Sherlock Holmes is famous. We are glad to find that The Chronicles of the Strand Club have become a monthly feature; they are amusing enough to tickle the palate of the most "blase of readers. Mr W W Jacobs also contributes to the humorous side in the magazine, and right well does he acquit himself of his difficult task in his latest story, entitled "A Love Knot." "How to be Healthy at all ages," a symposium of eminent doctors, is an article that should appeal most strongly to persons of all ages. The valuable advice ot England's most famous physicians i& given here, and there is much in the article that should be remembered by most of us. Rudyard Kipling has another "Puck of Pook's Hill story for children, and the article on Malingering," by Dr Litton Forbes, is most interesting. Dr Forbee deals extensively with the simulation of disease, and the numerous instances and methods of detec- tion make very interesting reading. Two new series of unusual interest commenced in the March Wide World Magazine.' The first is On the High Seas," a budget of modern marine romances. The stay-at-home authority will some- times tell you that the days of sea romance are over, but these stories—compiled with the assist- ance of Lloyd's and the leading shipping companies —prove conclusively that the statement is not cor- rect, for among them will be found real life dramas of the ocean more thrilling than novelist ever con- ceived. The second new feature is "A Modern Free Lance," being the adventures of a rolling stone in South America. The first story, How we Stole the Battleship," is most exciting, culmin- ating as it does in a fight with British warships. The striking cover of the March number of The Sunday Strand," The Statues of Memnon," is extremely noticeable, and is a good index of the quality of the contents. The first thing that strikes one on opening the magazIne is a speaking likeness of the Rev F B Meyer, M.A., which his admirers will undoubtedly cut out and frame. That indefatigable traveller, M'ss Jessie Acker- mann, writes on "Iceland as I Saw It," and from her point of view it does not seem a very undesi- rable place of residence. She believes that it will become a national sanatorium. The cover of the March number of Fry's Maga- zine continues the series of old-fashioned sports by Mr Charles Crombie, which has been running this year. This time a bright picture of the hobby- horse is given, and the contents of the magazine fulfil the promise of the cheerful exterior, Mr Fry himself deals with the question of "Civilian Rifle Clubs and the Volunteers." The March number of the "Captain" concludes the fourteenth volume of this-the magazine for boys and old boys-and in addition to instalments of the two serials-" The White Feather," a sshool story, by P G VVodehou3e: and •« Cox's Cough Drops," by R S Warren Bell-—contains four short stories, viz., "The Green Sail," a yarn of the slave trade, by W B Home-Gall; A Candi- date for Laurels," a story of a school poet, by Stuart Wishing; &c. Rugby School is fully illustrated and there is a portrait of its head- "Dean James as he used to be known in this locality. The "Grand Magazine," as usual, supplies us with nearly 200 pages of fact and fiction, all of the best. Even now we bad that we have not I enumerated all or perhaps even the most inter-1 esting of the contents, for, on opening the I volume again, we find our attention riveted by ] the serial story. The Dream and the Business," signed John Oliver Hobbep, and by tho other equally fascinating romance of real life, "The Life Story of Henry Irviag," related by that admirable raconteur, Joseph R-itton, 'editor of the People." There is, too, among the stories, all of which are perfect in their wiy, a thrilling episode in the struggle between the white and the black rases in South Africa, particularly appropriate at the present moment. Need we add—perhaps the greatest recommendation of all—that the price of this encyclopedic magazine is but 4101.
Football. LOVE JONES FIGURES IN AN INTERNATIONAL MATCH. The Welshmen gave a splendid account of themselves in the international match at Edin- burgh last Saturday, gaining a great victory over the representatives of tha Thistle by two clear goals. This is the second time in succession that the Scottish eleven has had to acknowledge the superiority of the Leek, last year's match at Wrexham resultiog in a victory for Wales by 3 goals to 1. The Rhyl town club wAs not directly represented in the Welsh team, but it has had much to do with the making of an international player of whom the principality is justly proud. We refer to Love Jones, who rendered the Rhyl club con- spicuous service until three or four months ago. On Saturday he was one of a trio of Joneses who figured successfully in the Welsh front line. M Morgan Owen (Corinthians), the Welsh centre- half, can also claim strong local associations. Love Jones has come in tor considerable atten- tion from the press since he figures in first-class football. The following appeared in this week's Athletic News" :—When Rhyl and Birkenhead met for the second time in their Association Cup- tie at Rhyl, on Thursday, November 2nd, repre- sentatives from League clubs were waiting to sign up the centre-forward of each of the competing sides. Liverpool had previously arranged terms for the transfer of Blanthorne, the pivot of the Birkenhead front line, and immediately the match had concluded the necessary documents were signed and completed. Mr H D Austerberry, the Stoke secretary, was so struck with the play of John Love Jones, a mere boy, who operated at centre-forward for the Welshmen, that he per- suaded the Rhyl secretary to call a special meeting of his committee the same evening. Negotiations were immediately opened, and for a modest fee Stoke secured the transfer of the young Welshman's services, and Mr Auster- berry left Rhyl the same night with the forms in his pocket. The epidemic of injuries which weakened the Stoke forward line in November and Dacember give young Jones his opportunity, and his debut against Newcastle United, on December 16, greatly impressed the critics. He signalised his appearance in Lsague foothill by scoring a brilliant goal against the Tynesidera, and in his play generally he has more than ful- filled expectations. + <or. "Lovie" Jones was born in Rhyl 19 years ago, and before playing for the premier club of his native place appeared in the centre for Prestatyn. Although not a giant, he is sturdily built, carrying lOat 71b for 5ft 7in. He favours the open game by long, swinging paises to his wing men, and is generally to be found in position in front of goal to receive a centre. He is one of the youngst internationals Wales I has ever had. if The Welsh Amateur Cup semi-final at Rhyl on Saturday, between Portmadoc and Rhos Ringers, resulted in a 3-2 victory for Portmadoc. not- withstanding that they were in the minority at half-time.

The ancient I rivalry between these teams set the men going at top speed the moment the whistle was blown, and play travelled from end to end with exciting speed. The visitors were the most aggressive, but were met with a defence as furious as their attack, and for fifteen minutes the defence prevailed. Then the Bangor attack woke up and good work by Moran, Brookes, Humphreys, Burns, and Eyans brought about a seething hurly-burly in front of the Rhyl goal, which moment after moment was only kept intact by the stalwart kicking out by the active and energetic backs, Jack Jones and Ogilvie. During this meelee Jack Jones was hurt, and left the field. A free kick against Bangor lot Rhyl up the field, and E T Williams got in a smashing shot which crashed against the inside of the post and dropped dead in front of goil. Davy James sprang out on the instant, and was furiously tumbled over as he 1 cleared and then Bangor swung up the field in line, but were pulled up. Rhyl attacked from the throw up, and maintained the attack wit h splendid energy. Lapping finally bringing the assault to a brilliant close with a shot which beat James all the way. Once again Bangor had a look in, and a determined onslaught brought about an equalising goal. Half-time thus found the j score a goal each. The second half was largely a repetition of the first, only neither side scored again, thanks to brilliant defensive work at both end?. N.W.C.

(Rhyl as a Winter Health Resort. Rhyl is rapidly acquiring a high reputa. tion for its climate in winter. Hitherto its advantages as a winter resi- dence have not been appreciated as they deserve, which I attribute to the fact that they have not been sufficiently made known, and I am convinced that the more they are considered, the more popular will it become as a health resort. It stands almost unequalled for the salu- brity and dryness of its atmosphere, its exemp- tion from all kinds of epidemics, and its entire freedom from fogs. The small precipitation of rain, and absence of mist and fog in winter at Rhyl, is due, in the ftrst place, to the Snowdonian mountains having condensed and caused the precipita- tion of the moisture of the rain winds, and secondly to the drying influence of the wide expanse of sandhilla and the sand left between the tide marks, and the conse- quent absenco of standing water. The dry and porous nature of the soil, of course, exercises a great influence on the warmth of its climate, as through the soil the rain percolates almost as soon as it falls, and but little, therefore, is left to cool and moisten the air by evaporation. The rainfall of Rhyl is remarkably emal and there is a very high record of sunshine, 11 the average temperature being cooler in summer and warmer in winter than either in Torquay or Bournemouth. The long and lofty range of mountains traversing the whole of North Wales exercises a very Important influence on its climate. Tht fall of rain in the mountainous regions far exceeds the fall in the immediate locality of Rhyl, and to this fact the town is to a considerable extent indebted for tho m- ally high temperature it enjoys through the winter months. Many eminent doctors in the large English towns speak in the highest terms of the climate along the North Wales Coast, and send their patients thither, to winter and recuperate during convalescence, and the late Dr Evans, of Birmingham, who during his lifetime was a frequent visitor to Rhyl, used to say that it was unrivalled in the United Kingdom as a residence for consumptive patients. ears ago, invalids were ordered to Tor- quay and Ventnor, until those health resorts being found too relaxing the more bracing air of Bournemouth was discovered to be beneficial. And there is no doubt whatever that before many years have passed, the stil purer and more bracing air of Rhyl will in many cases be preferred to that of either of the winter resorts I have mentioned. Another important advantage possessed by Rhyl is its accessibility, it being about three hours'ride from Birmingham, and the London and North Western Railway Company, who own the line by which our destination is reached, offer every facility in the way of cheap fares, for long or short periods, during the winter months. Rhyl is now an important town with a resident population of about 9,000. The principal streets and promenade are lighted with electricity the Town Band plays during the winter frequent concerts and entertainments take place; and there are good hockey, football aDd social clubs, so that those who believe the place is dull in winter will be most agreeably surprised, as they will be, also, at the low prices charged during the winter months at the hotels and boarding houses. I have visited Rhyl in almost every month of the year for periode of three months to. three days at a time, and I fully believe that as a winter resort it can-not be surpassed and the fact that it has been selected for a place of permanent residence by numbers of men of business and independent means proves it is a desirable place to live at all the year round, and as the grandness and beauty of its climate in winter become better under- stood, there will be few places more sought after as a winter resort.

St Asaph Grocer's Application. SUCCESSFUL OPPOSITION BY THE LICENCED VICTUALLERS' ASSOCIATION AND THE TEMPERANCE PARTY. At St Asaph adjourned licensing sessions on Monday, Colonel Howard, C.B., presiding, John Elias Price, Liverpool House, applied for a grocer's licence. Mr Joseph Lloyd appeared for the applicant, and Mr F J Gamlin opposed on behalf of the Licensed Victuallers' Association and the local tem- perance party. Mr Lloyd said that his client already held a wine and spirit licence in respect to the premises known as the Mill. That licence he could renew by simply applymg to the excise authorities, the reason being that the premises were not used for the sale of anything but wines and spirits. Mr Price, however, wished to carry on all his business at his shop, and if the Bench granted his application, he would do away with the Mill licence. Mr Price carried on a big business, and under the present conditions it was quite possible that an assistant might inadvertently take an order for wines or spirits at the shop instead of at the mill, which would at once be fn offence against the licensing laws. Surely it was to the interests of sobriety that Mr Price should come within the jurisdiction of the court, and that he should be treated from year to year on the same level as other licensees, instead of going behind the Bench, In ZD as he could do, and obtaining a licence at Rhyl. Mr Price also desired a licence to sell beer by retail at the shop. At present he could sell beer at the Mill, but not in quantities of less than 4 gallons. 2 L, Apart from public houses, there was no place in St. Asaph at present where one could order a dozen bottles of beer, and as the Bench were doubtless aware, there were many peo- ple who had an objection to going to a i 9 11 public house to order bottles of beer. If granted permission Mr Price would not sell less than a dozen bottles of beer at a time. The Magistrates' Clerk \Mr Oliver George)—Does anyone oppose the applica- tion ? "a Mr Gamlin I object on behalf of 150 people. The ClerK Name one. Mr. Gamlin The Rev. Benjamin Hughes. Mr Lloyd: I am glad to see that Mr Hughes and his friends sometimes find them- selves in agreement with the licensed victual- lers (laughter). Rev B Hughes Not at all. The Clerk (to Mr Hughes) You had better leave the matter for the present to Mr Gamlin, who represents you. Mr Lloyd This looks like a case in which the temperance party are having the advant- age of the services of a solicitor for whom the licensed victuallers have to pay. Con- tinuing his argument in support of the appli- cation Mr Lloyd said there would be no com- petition with the publicans. The Chairman: Supposing I send Mr Price an order for goods, and I say send me three bottles of brandy ? Mr Lloyd Under present circumstances, if you sent such an order to the shop he ought to send it back and tell you to direct it to the mill. And if you send for half a dozen or a dozen bottles of beer he must write back and tell you to order 4% gallons (laughter). If you are temperate and order only a dozen bottles, you can't get them as things stand (renewed laughter). Formal evidence having been given by Gwilym Thomas, applicant's clerk, Applicant also gave evidence. Replying to Mr Gamlin, he said he resided at 'Mostyn- house, St Asaph. Mr Gamlin, after referring to the notice, said he objected as the notice was bad, inas- much as it described applicant as residing at Liverpool-house. t, The bench decided to hear the case and consider the objection afterwards. Further cross-examined, applicant said the late proprietor of the business he now owned gave up a licence he had because of his having been made a deacon of his church, and the members objected to the licence. He denied that the effect of a licence at the shop would be to tempt women to get drink. Mr Gamlin said despite applicant's attempt to minimise the consequences of these licences it would not be disputed that the granting of grocers' licences had a demoralising effect. There was no necessity for the licence, as within thirty yards there were three licensed houses. He handed in two petitions against the application. Miss Bennett, formerly a member of the Board of Guardians, Mrs Mitford, Mrs Wil- liams, and the licensees of the Bryndinas and Plough Hotels and the White Horse also opposed the application. The bench conferred in private, and on re- turing into court the Chairman announced that the application failed. No reason was given for the decision.
