THE COMING ELECTION. The annual election in connection with the Rhyl C-rban District Council is again drawing nigh, and just now there is much speculation as to who are going to appeal to the electorate. At present there seems to be a prospect of a keen contest in each ward. The retiring Coun- cillors in the east ward are Messrs T D Jones and P J Aslifield, both of whom have estab- lished records highly pleasing to their constituents. Owing to pressure of other duties, however, including those in connection with the recently re-organised Advertising Association, which deserves well of the town, Mr Ashfield is not seeking re-election. While this will be generally regretted, it will, we feel sure, be the sincere wish of ill that success may attend the various duties which our energetic and enthusiastic townsman has in hand. Mr Ashtield has placed the town under many obligations, but none of the services ne has rendered will The more gratefully remembered than those he rendered in the Council Chamber, to which place we trust he may at no very distant date return. Mr T D Jones is one of the best known public men in these parts, and he can point to a good record of service in the interests of his fellow townsmen, and there need be no lack of contidence in his appeal to the voters at the coming election. We learn that Mr G A Taverner, J. P., one of our most popular townsmen, and a gentleman with many qualifications for the post of Councillor, including his experience as a member of the old Board of Commissioners, intends making a bid for one of the East Ward seats. The name of Mr Isaac Batho, one of the town's representatives on the Board of Guardians, has been mentioned in the same connection. In the wost ward both the retiring members, Messrs J If KIlis, J.P., and R Oldfield, are seeking re-election, but despite their good records are not apparently to be allowed a walk- over. Mr Ellis has devoted about a quarter of a century to the service of the town, > wiiu,u iengtny service shows how thoroughly appreciated has been his work. Mr Oldfield has put in a most successful apprenticeship to Council work, and will undoubtedly be a strong candidate again. Encouraged rather than daunted by two successive narrow defeats, Mr Edmund Hughes, we believe, means to make another attempt to enter the Council Chamber as a member for the West Ward, and the un- abated interest he has taken in local affairs, coupled with hisllong connection with the town, should render his prospects brighter than ever. Another probable aspirant for honours in the West Ward is Mr Henry Jones, Bedford-street. He has not previously made a bid for a seat, but his qualifications for the position are based upon an intimate knowledge of the town's affairs and a close observance of the procedure of the Council from month to month. We I regret that ill-health and his pending departure from the town should compel Mr C R Tayleur not to seek re-election as a member for the South Ward, and we can only hope that his indisposition, which has interfered so much with his municipal duties, will soon be a thing of the past. His colleague, Mr HP Williams, has fully realised expectations during this his first term of office, and his re-election will be heartily wished by many. There is, how- ever, likely to be a three-cornered contest in the South Ward, the other probable candidates being Mr Llewelyn B Evans and Mr Joseph Jones. Mr jEvans, though one of our youngest townsmen, has already made two plucky fights, and he may be relied upon to again give a good account of himself, Mr Joseph Jones, as we remarked last week, has been connected with the town for about thirty years, is well acquainted with its needs, and can spare the time which the effi- cient discharge of a Councillor's duties calls for. Nominations must be handed in by Thursday next at noon, and withdrawals may be made up till noon on the following Tuesday. In the event of contests the polling will take place on Monday, April 2nd.
From One Prison to Another SEQUEL TO AN ABERCELE THEFT. THE CULPRIT S NARROW ESCAPE AT RHYL. At Abergele Police Court yesterday, before Mr J Duncan Miller and Dr Wolstenholme, James Evans, described as late of Abergele, was charged with having by false pretences obtained from John Hughes Lewis, trading as Lewis Brothers, tailors, Bridge House, Abergele, on April 26, 1905, a suit of gent's clothes and two gent's overcoats, valued at t5 13s 6d. Prosecutor stated that on the date in question defendant called at the shop and ordered the goods in question, saying he had been recommended there by Mrs Evans, Tanyrogo Farm, where he had been staying, and that he was going to Canada. Mrs Evans and family were good cus- tomers to witness, and anyone recommended to him by them could have anything from the shop on credit. At tha same time Evans enquired for some patterns of ladies' costume cloths, and asked wit- ness to call at Tanyrogo Farm by eight o'clock the next morning, as his wife was going away by an early train, and he wanted her to make up her micd about some clothes. Witness replied that he could not go to Tanyrogo at that time, and defen- dant then remarked that it would do if he called on the second morning after. Witness gave defendant a bill, and offered to send the parcel to Tanyrogo Farm. but defendant said he could manage it very well on his bicycle. About twenty minutes after defendant's departure witness decided to go to Tanyrogo Farm to inquire into the matter, and in consequence of what he learnfc there he placed the case in the hands of the police. Miss Miriam Hughes, waitress at Griffiths' Temperance Hotel, Bodfor Street, Rhyl, stated that on the evening of the date in question defend- ant arrived at the hotel with a bicycle and a rather large parcel, and engaged a bedroom. He disappeared after having had some tea, leaving the coat produced and the bicycle behind him. P.C Pendlebury having proved following defend- ant to Rhyl, Defendant remarked that it was seeing the constable outside the hotel that made up his mind to depart at once. William Evans, Tanyrogo Farm, said he had never seen defendant till that day, and denied that he bad ever stayed at Tanyrogo Farm, or had authority from anyone there to go to prosecutor's shop. Inspector Bagshaw proved the apprehension of defendant as he was leaving Shrewsbury prison on Wednesday. Defendant pleaded guilty, and appealed to the bench to be dealt with summarily. He had just undergone a term of nine months' imprisonment, and he was awaiting trial in prison for some time before that period. He had thoroughly made up his mind to lead a different life, and he had friends in Canada who would pay his passage there as soon as he was at liberty. Having regard to the nature of the convictions already recorded against defendant, the bench had to commit him for trial at the Quarter Sessions, and he was removed in custody.
Flint & Denbigh Agricultural Society. A geneial meeting of the local committee of the Denbighshire and Flintshire Agricultural Society was held at Ruthin yesterday (Thursday), Mr G F Byford presiding. A discussion arose as to whether the "hunt bulls" class should be retained. It was pointed out that there are no hunt bulls in the district. It was decided to again offer the prize ot £6, and the secretary (MrWelsby) was instructed to communicate with the Flint and Denbigh Hunt with a virfw to the provision of hunt bulls for the district. The annual show take place at Ruthin on Thursday, August 23rd.
Talacre. The Schools. Mr P Coloban writes to deny a statement that there are only 38 children at the Talacre Schools, and says there are 73 on the registers. The School Controversy. Lady Mostyn has informed a Prestatyn corres- pondent as follows regarding the above matter "At the urgent request of their tenants and fellow-ratepayers, Sir Pyers and Lady Mostyn and the education authorities, at Talacre Schools, have consented to give notice that the schools shall run as heretofore as a non-provided public elementary Roman Catholic voluntary school." This points i to a solution of a difficulty regarding school accom 1 modation in Llanasa parish, which has arisen since the withdrawal of the Talacre schools from the f control of the County Council in January. i

North Wales Fire Brigades.! ANNUAL MEETINC AT RHYL. ¡ The annual meeting of the North Wales dis- trict of the National L nion of Fire Brigades was held at the Alexandra Hotel, Rhyl, yester- day. Councillor W Conwy Bell, Rhuddlan, presided, and there were also present Council- lor A Greenwood, Prestatyn Councillors Geo. Perkins and Ed Williams, Abergele; Mr J Oldfield, Rhuddlan and representatives of Blaenau 1 estiniog, Colwyn Bay, Dolgelley, Llandudno, Menai Bridge, Mostyn Hall, Os- westry, Queen's Ferry, and Sandycroft Bri- gades, with Mr J 0 Hughes, Rhuddlan, hon secretary and treasurer. Mr Bell said he had to apologise for the absence of the district president, Lord Mostyn, who hoped the meet- ing would be a great success. The Annual Report. The annual report showed that during 1905 the number of affiliated brigades reached a total of 23, the latest additions being those of Port- madoc and Carnarvon and that the year had been a most successful one in every respect. The demonstrations and competitions at Dol- gelley in July last proved a great attraction, land thanks for the excellent arrangements were due to Lieut. Col G F Scott and the Dolgelley Re- ception Committee, through whose generosity the events were more numerous than ever and the prizes valuable, including three cups given by friends residing there. The financial state of affairs was most satisfactory, the balance in hand being £18 lis lOd. There were still a few brigades in the district which the secretary hoped to affiliate. The statement of accounts showed that the year began with a balance in hand of f,18 15s 2d, the subscriptions amounted to JE23 2s, and the receipts-including 91 lis lid from Bodrhyd- dan and 15s from Abergele for the Widows' and Orphans' Fund—brought up the total income to £ 41 12s 4d. To that sum had to be added f2,5 4s, the receipts in connection with Dol- gelley demonstration. The expenditure included Ell 11s in central dues remitted to headquar- ters, a donation of zC.3 to the Widows' and Orphans' Fund in addition to the sums for that object received from the Bodrhyddan and Abergele brigades, and JE24 6s 6d in connection with the demonstration and left, as already stated, a credit balance of J:18 11s lOd. An appeal was made for increased support for the Widows' and Orphans' Fund. It was, pointed out that the Union had only the sum of £2,:W9 lis. 7s (invested in Consols), and the governors were most anxious to raise R20,000, in order to enable them to grant about R200 per annum. Mr G W Lacey, Oswestry, in proposing the adoption of the reports, said he agreed with the secretary that the past year had been a most successful one. The balance sheet showed how carefully the district was worked. Mr A Greenwood, Prestatyn, seconded the motion, and it was agreed to. The Officers. The Chairman, in proposing a vote of thanks to Lord Mostyn for his services as president, remarked that his Lordship was no mere figure head, but one who took a keen active interest in fire brigade work (applause). With that motion he coupled the names of the vice-presi- dents, Sir R Williams Bulkeley, Bart., Mr T Byrne, and Lieut.-Col. G F Scott, to the last mentioned of whom they were particularly in- debted for the hard work he did for the Dol- gelley competitions (hear, hear). Mr T Roberts, Colwyn Bay, seconded, and the motion was carried with acclamation. Mr J Inglis, Mostyn, proposed a vote of thanks to the Council, and in so doing paid a well deserved tribute to the Chairman, who, he held, could not be bettered (applause). Mr Griffiths, Sandycroft, seconded the motion, which was cordially approved by the meeting. On the proposition of the Chairman, Lord Mostyn was re-elected president; and the vice- presidents were also re-elected, as were the members of the Council-Mr Bell (chairman), Mr J Owen, Llandudno Mr Thos. Roberts, Colwyn Bay and Mr Ed E Jones, DoIgelley. Surgeon Lieut.-Col. Edward Williams, Mold, was re-appointed district surgeon Mr C D Copley, L. & P. Bank, Rhyl, was re-appointed hon. auiitor and the duties of hon. secretary and treasurer again devolved upon Mr J 0 Hughes, who was warmly complimented upon the efficiency and enthusiasm with which he had discharged those duties in the past. Mr Hughes, in acknowledgment, said the work was sometimes arduous, but it was always a labour of love (applause). Mr Edward Williams raised the question of increasing the number of members on the Council, but it was pointed out that until the affiliated brigades exceeded 30, they could not claim any more seats on the Council. This Year e Demonstration: Abergele Invita- tion Accepted. Mr Geo Perkins spoke in support of an in- vitation from Abergele for this year's demon- stration to be held in that town. He assured the meeting that if that invitation was accepted everything would be done by the Abergele people to make the event a great success. He thought it possible that the Countess of Dun- donald might consent to the demonstration being held in Gwyrch Castle park. The invitation was supported by Councillor Ed Williams, captain of the Abergele Fire Bri- gade and no other application being put for- ward, it was cordially accepted, on the proposi- tion of Mr J Owen (Llandudno), and seconded by Mr T Roberts (Colwyn Bay). The date agreed upon was Thursday, June 28th.
Hawarden. Station Safe Rifled. A startling discovery was made at Hawarden Railway Station on Monday morning. On arriving at the station Mr Williams, the stationmaster, dis- covered the book-office had been broken into dur- ing the night and the safe had disappeared. The latter, after a brief search, was discovered lying by the permanent way about 200 yards from the station, smashed open and rifled of its contents. The amount contained is not definitely known but is most likely to be considerable after Saturday's bookings. The police were at once informed, and are taking active measures. The robbery evident- ly took place on Sunday night, as the station- master was on duty up till 10-30 p.m.
Newmarket. Temperance Meeting. On Tuesday evening a temperance meeting was held at the C.M. Chapel,, when addresses were delivered by the Rev 8 Thomas, who pre- sided, the Rev John Kelly, Prestatyn, and others. Arrangements are being made for a temperance demonstration here at the end of the month.

Mr Gilbert Hughes, of the N. and S.W. Bank, has Jeft Prestatyn for Llanrvvst amidst mingled feelings. His departure is much re- gretted locally, but all wish him every success in his new sphere of labour. As a small token of the appreciation in which his services in various directions were held, especially in con- nection with the Choral Society, of which he was one of the secretaries, he received a hand- some silver cigar case. A Desirable Scarcity. Speaking at the St David's Day dinner last week, in response ti the toast of "The Town and Trade of Prestatyn," Mr Thos Jones, chairman of the Urban District Council, re- marked that Prestatyn differed from many places inasmuch as it had a scarcity of drunkards and loafers at the street corners. At the same gathering it was suggested that Prestatyn should have more magistrates. Yet for some time past it has been a! most more than the town can do to furnish cases in which the magis- trates could adjudicate. ° Cilchrist Lectures. The Rev Dr Townsend has been asked to wait upon the Gilchrist Trust with a view of securing a course of Gilchrist lectures for the town. Constitutional Club. The annual meeting was held at the club house last Friday evening, Mr Jno Pritchard presiding in the absence of Lord Mostyn and Mr W H Coward, the latter being still very ill.

Afterwards the tenants were entertained to dinner under the presidency of Councillor J B Linnell, the estate agent. The post prandial proceedings opened 0 with the customary loyal toasts. Others which followed included the healths of Sir Charles McLaren, Bart, K.C., M.,P., Lady McLaren and family, which were proposed in felicitous terms by Mr John Roberts, Gwaenysgor, and was received by the company with great enthusiasm. The health of Mr Linnell was cordially toasted, on the proposition of Mr Wm Davies, who took the opportunity of expressing the thanks of farmers to the Flint and Denbigh Hunt Bull Committee for the splendid bulls they had pro- vided for the district, and for the consequent improvement of the cattle of the district. The Chairman having suitably responded, the health of Mrs Thomas, the hostess, was proposed by Mr Robert Jones, and received in a very cordial manner. Preparing for the Fray. If there be any foundation for current gossip, there is to be a lively contest for the four seats on the Urban District Council which shortly become vacant. The retiring Councillors are Messrs W H Coward, Jno Pritchard, Peter Ellis, and T Parry Williams. Owing to illness, which is universally regretted, it is unlikely that Mr Coward will make any effort to retain his seat, but his three colleagues are expected to stand again. It is generally understood that Mr Henry Wright, who lost his seat at the last election, will once again seek the suffrages of the electors and Mr T Pennant Williams, who already represents the town on the St. Asaph Board of Guardians, is spoken of as another likely candidate. Other probable candidates are Messrs W Inglefield and E Jones Evans, and liberties are also being taken with the name of the Rev Ezra Jones. There any many who would like to see Mr J Banks come for- ward, but it is whispered that he is reserving his energies for another year. In a few days, however, we shall see what we shall see. Football. To-morrow Prestatyn hope to entertain their supporters with a good game against Abergele, m the Marine Road ground. Prestatyn are itill in the running for league championship lonours, therefore they may be relied upon to ,hrow nothing away in to-morrow's match, as iven goals may count in the end. iccident. A son of Mr Williams, Plastirion, was everely injured on Monday by being knocked [own and run over by a lurry. We are, how- ver, pleased to learn that he is making good Irogress towards recovery.
Mostyn. Welsh Through and Through. Within the next few weeks the eldest sons of Lord Harlech and Lord Mostyn will come of age. Lord Harlech, whose extensive estate of 60,000 acres is spread over Eugland, Ireland, and Wales, is described by the World as an enormously rich peer. The Mostyns are Welsh through and through, and all the children bear Welsh names. Mr Edward Lloyd Mostyn is now on duty with the Irish Guards. He entered the latter regiment in May, 1905, from the Royal Welsh Fusiliers Militia, in which his brother, Mr Roderic Mostyn, is now serving. Unlike the Mostyns of Talacre, Lord Mostyn's family are not Roman Catholics-their name was originally Lloyd-and both Lord Mostyn and his son were educated at Eton, where their names may be seen in upper school.
Mold. The Sheriff.

I Creditors' Meeting. W hat was described as an urgent meeting o! creditors of the estate of Mrs Agnes Greenhalgh, who recently entered into a deed of arrangement,' was held at the Grosyenor Hotel on Wednesday,' Mr R B Arnold, co-trustee with Mr C D Copley, presiding. The position of affairs was ex- plained by Mr F J Gamlin, one of the creditors and solicitor to several others. It was pointed out that since the execution of the deed of arrange- ment, which was approved of by 17 votes to 4 in favour of bankruptcy, matters had been much complicated by the filing of a petition by Mr J S Greenhalgh, brother-in-law of Mrs Greenhalah. The late Mr James Greenhalgh's estate, consisting of houses in Seabank Road, which was one source of Mrs Greenhalgh's income, was now in the hands of mortgagees, and until they had been paid £2,040 and interest nobody else would receive a penny piece. What they would get out of the Rochdale business remained to be proved. As for Mrs Greenhalgh's father's estate, another source of income, the management appeared to be such that half the property was empty. Mr R Bromley said the debtor was absolutely penniless, and was being distrained upon for rent. Mr Gamlin said he had every confidence that the creditors would get every penny ultimately, but how long they would have to wait he could not say. Eventually a suggestion was adopted that Mr Gamlin should commence negociations for the acquisition by one of the creditors of Mr Lucas' interest in the father's estate, the same to be carried on under specified conditions. Exemplary School Attendance. The annual distribution of award'! for good attendance in connection with Immanuel School took place on Tuesday afternoon. Mr Godfrey Parry, chairman of the school managers, presided and was supported by the Rev J Pandy Williams and Mrs Williams, Councillor J A Williams, Mr K McEwen, corresponding secretary, and others interested in education. The awards, which were distributed by Mrs Pandy Williams, included medals to the following for a year's perfect attendance :-J G Roberts (5th year), Archibald C Williams (4th year), Rosa M Price, Arthur L Williams, Annie Davies, Laura Roberts, Roger Ellis Jones, Lillie Roberts, JaDe S PriCA, Harold Williams, and Fred Roberts. In a racy address Mr Pandy Williams impressed upon the scholars the importance of regularity and punctuality, which, he pointed out, formed one of the conditions of L success in life and he strongly urged the study of "he lives of men of mark. Mr McE wen and M r J A Williams also spake, the latter taking the oppor- tunity of presenting a medal to the chairman as a small memento of the oscasion and of his long con- tinued interest in the schoo', and another to Mrs Pandy Williams. The proceedingi included musical selections by the scholars under the direction of Mr Geo. Nuttall, the popular headmaster. St. John's Church. The choir of St. John's Church are engaged in preparing numbers of Bach's Passion Music for Holy Week, also "The Crucifixion," which will be given on Good Friday evening as usual. Christ Church. Last Sunday's services at this place of worship were of a special character in a double sense. They marked the commencement of the second year of the pastor's ministry and the re-opening of the chapel after re decoration and the installation of electric light. The improvements have been car- ried out in a very pleasing manner, Mr Caradoc Davies being responsible for the renovation work, aud Messrs Holt and Co. for the electric light in- stallation. Sunday's services were largely attend- ed, and appropriate seimons were delivered by the pastor, Rev J Pandy Williams. The anniversary was further celebrated yesterday by a tea and con- cert.

Mrs Godfrey Parry and Mrs Ay re had charge of the kitchen arrangements. Mrs Vernon was largely responsible for the collection of the trays. At the concert also there was au overflowing attendance, presided over by the pastor. A delightful pro- gramme was gone through, encores being frequent. Amongst the gems of thu evening were the bril- liant organ solos by Mr Bryan Warhurst, whose complete mastery over the instrument won most enthusiastic applause. Miss Nesta Jones also charmed the audience with her solos, her rendering of "The Lost Chord," with organ accompaniment by Mr Warhurst, being particularly successful and resulting in an undeniable recall, when she gave a very sympathetic rendering of 41 On the Raft." Mr R Hanlon was heard to great advan- tage in that fine song The Land of Hope and Glory and again in The Stars Above," while Mr R W Hudson did himself full justice in the songs "A Song of Thanksgiving and Across the Blue Hills," the rendering of the latter gaining him an enthusiastic encore Miss Parker Davies' recitations were also a great treat, and the quar- tettes by Messrs J Roberts Jones, E W Parry, W C Davies and F C Tailby, and by:the Misses Parker and Evans and Messrs E W Parry and F C Tailby, were cordially received, as were also the pianoforte duet by the Misses Taylor and Lambert, and the violin duet by the Misses Sheffield and Gladys Lewis.

The annual report has just been issued* and from it we gather that the present mem- bership numbers 417, 25 new members (excluding those received from other churches) having been admitted during the past year. During the year two members only were removed by death, as against tan the previous year. The library has been re-arranged and enriched, and there are now in it about 600 volumes.

The total of the col- lections came to CS21 (including ministry E298, missionary £ 40, place of worship £156, the revolt movement £57). Most of the various organiza- tions show balances in hand.

We understand that on Thursday next a benefit concert will be given at the Town Hall to Miss Mabel Hughes, in recognition of her valuable serj yices so often rendered in the town as accompanist, and we trust the concert will be well patronized.

This took the form of a presentation of a handsome solid silver toilet set, consisting of brush, comb, and handglass, with an appropriately in. scribed tray, which had been subscribed for by members of the church as a birthday present and in recognition of her faithful services as organist.
