COLWYN BAY. MY SOLDIER BO\—The Colwyn Bay Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Societv, which is affiliated to the National Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Association, has evi- dently come to stav. The Societv has done good work since its inauguration, and will prove a boon to the town in providing capital entertainments during the dull winter months. Last night (Wednesday), at the Pier Pavilion, there was a good house to witness the per- formance of the farcical comedy, My Soldier Boy," by Alfred Maltbv and Frank Lindo. The acting was exceedingly good, and reflected great credit upon the excellent cast, which was as follows :—Montague Mendle, a solicitor, Mr. G. S. Butler Rush Captain Cecil Cullendar, Archie Allison, and Colonel Roscoe, 12th Hussars, Messrs. A. T. Wright, R. Mervyn Wood, and A. LI.

Heard Michael O'Doeherty, Cullendar's Orderlv, Mr. George Mason Lydia Mendle, Mendle's wife, Miss Doris Francis Mrs. Morrison, a business-like j woman. Mrs. Clegg Geraldine Morrison, her daughter, Miss G. Slater and Martha, Mendle's servant, Miss Mervyn Wood. Inci- dental music was given by the Colwvn Bay Orchestra. Mr. J. Mervyn Wood acted as stage manager, and the stage furniture was kindly lent by Messrs. Rhvdwen Jones & Davies, Colwyn Bay, Rhyl, and Llandudno. The Society has a capable Hon. Secretarv in Mr. H. E. Greenfield. WESTERN FILMS.—A visit to the Public Hall will convince an observer that Western films are the favourites of an audience. It matters not so much whether Indian stories, cowboy subjects, or Western dramas are portrayed, as long as they are Western, having the true colouring and atmosphere of the great silent West. Nor is this to be wondered at. Monday's programme included Western comedy, The Trimming of Para- dise Gulch Charles Reade's famous novel, Peg Woffington an English militarv drama, The Plans of the Fortress," &c. There is now an entire change of pictures every Thursday. To-night's programme in- cludes a powerful sea story, The Judgment of the Mighty Deep"; a Western drama, The Bandit's Wife an A B., The Marked Time Table a travel film. Views of Turin The Winning Punch," Smith won't get married," A quiet boarding house," Music hath charms," A birthHay present," and many other interesting and novel subjects. VOTES FOR WOMEN. -A successful monthly meeting of the local branch of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Socie- ties was held on Monday night at Cartmell's Cafe. Mr. Kettlewell presided, and Miss Kenyon and Dr. Blake took part in an in- teresting debate on Shall women have the vote;" Miss Kenyon moved the following resolution That this meeting believes it to be to the interests of the community at large that the Parliamentary Franchise should be granted to women on the same terms as it is or may be granted to men," and spoke for it in a well-thought-out paper from the standpoint of justice as chief among many reasons. Dr. Blake opposed it in an amusing and humorous paper, taking for her main text the favourite argument of the Anti-Suffragists that Men are men. and women are women." A discussion followed the papers, and several questions were asked and answered satisfactorily by the speakers. The resolution was carried without a dissen- tient. THE MIKADO. A statement shewing the receipts and payments in connection with the recent performances of the Mik- ado has been prepared by Mr. F. E. Schiele, honorary treasurer, and audited by Mr. G. L.

Miss Lena Thomas, the organ- iser and honorary secretary of the opera, desires to extend her sincere thanks to the many friends who assisted her, particularly to Mr. F. E. Schiele for his valuable services as honorary treasurer and in rehearsing the music of the opera. Also Mr. Pryce Davies for his assistance at the performances. Taking into consideration the terrible weather experienced on the nights of the opera, the amount received shews clearly the keen appre- ciation of the public for the annual opera promoted by Miss Thomas, and the Mik- ado has been pronounced the most charm- ing of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas yet given in this town. RHIW-ROAD C.M. CHAPEL.—A very successful tea party was held at the School- room yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon, and was followed by a most interesting lecture on Mission work on the Khassia Hills, in India," given by the Rev.

A SEASONABLE HINT.—The establish- ment of Messrs. Lewis & Thompson, Station- road, is an interesting one for ladies and gentlemen at this season of the year. For ties and socks there is no better place in town, and their gloves are second to none. There is a splendid display of shirts, pyjamas and fancy waiscoats, dressing gowns, travel- ling rugs and of umbrellas with up to date handles. For all the pretty electeras to complete ladies' dainty toilets there is no more favourite shop than theirs, 17, Station-road. Lace goods, handkerehiefs, and scarves are shown in endless variety.

ABERGELE. TEA PARTY AND CONCERT. The above were held at Bodoryn Chapel, on Thursday afternoon and evening, and though the weather proved very unfavourable, both the tea and concert were a complete success. The following ladies attended at the tables Mrs. and Misses Jones, Bodoryn Fawr Mrs. and Miss Owen, Bodoryn Bach Mrs. Wil- liams. Ty Mawr, Towyn Mrs. Jones, Gas Works Mrs. Price, Bodoryn Cottages Mrs. Hughes, Terfyn, and Mrs. Thomas, Rhos Lan. The concert was presided over by Mr. J. Roberts, Llwyni, in the unavoidable ab- sence of Mr. Evans, Haulfryn. The accom- panist was Mr. Gwilym Morgan, Abergele, who fulfilled his duties admirably. The following took part -Moelfre Party (under the conductorship of Mr. William Morgan), the Gele Party (Mr. R. J. Jones), and solos were rendered by Mr. T. LI. Jones, Abergele Miss Davies, Moelfre Miss Jones, Abergele Mr. R. J. Jones, Gas Works, and Mr. William Morgan. A very interesting feature was the harp solo by Mr. David Francis (blind harpist) of Blaenau Festiniog, and the penillion sing- ing by Dewi Mai o Feirion. and they were repeatedly encored, and the local talent were also loudly applauded on each appearance. The concert terminated with an effectual rendering of the quartette, Ti wyddost beth ddywed fy nghalon," by the Gele Party. Mr. R. J. Jones, Gas Works, the Secretary of the movement, is to be highly compli- mented on its success, in addition to the valuable assistance given by him to the concert. CONCERT.—A miscellaneous concert was held at the Ship Cafe on Friday evening, Mr. Charles Pierson, Garswood, presiding over a very large audience. The following pro- gramme was gone through :-Recitation, The moral umbrella," Miss Blodwen Ro- berts. Bryngwenallt song, Thora." Mr. T. Llew. Jones violin solo, Le Reve," Mr. Payne song, Chwifio'r Cadach Gwyn," Miss Blodwen Williams gramaphone selec- tions on Mr. R. E. Needham's beautiful instrument song, Bonnie Scotland," Mr. Tommy Jones (encored) gramaphone selec- tions; recitation. "Hedd a Chledd," Mr. Tom Williams, Pensarn song, The poor married man," Cybi (encored) violin solo, Mr. Payne gramaphone selections. Mr. Pierson said that the Welsh people generally were possessed of magnificent voices, due, probably, to the salubrious air of their coun- try. But he was bound to say that the Cymrv did not study the grammar of music as they should. This was particularly noticeable in their renderings of part-songs and hymn-tunes. Young singers ought to remember that to sing properly was to sing in such a way as to convey to the audience what the author of the song really meant when composing it. He (Mr. Pierson) had trained many hundreds of church choristers and he had no hesitation in saving that most public singers should think a great deal more of self-effacement than they reallv did. By that he meant less of self and more of the composer. He contended that unless singers had a message in their voices they could not hope to reach the people's hearts. Let them also remember that they could honour God even in singing a song. Mr. G. T. Evans pro- posed, and Mr. W. J. Evans seconded, a hearty vote of-thanks to the Chairman and to all those who had contributed towards the success of the evening. OBITUARY.—I regret to report the some- what sudden death of Miss Evans, for many years housekeeper at Bryngwenallt for Sir Herbert and Lady Roberts, which occurred on Friday night.

RAILWAY ACCIDENT.—A serious mis- hap occurred to the Irish boat express which goes through Conway station for Holyhead, about midnight on Friday. At the Waen crossing, the train, which was travelling at full speed, came to a sudden standstill owing to the breaking of the vacuum brakes. An examination was made and it was found that one of the middle wheels of the rear parcel van was missing, having been snapped away from the axle. The van was detached, and after a complete examination, the passengers, who were considerably alarmed, were re- assured, and the train proceeded on its journey. The terrible noise made by the train passing through the Junction and Conway awoke several inhabitants, who fearing a disaster rushed out. It was found that the permanent way from the other side of the Junction to the Waen crossing had been considerably damaged by the trailing axle, and in places the rails had been snapped as the train rushed over the points. Traffic was seriously delayed and for some hours a single line had to be worked, with the result that the early morning trains were some hours late. During Friday afternoon however, the break- down gang had got the line clear and the line was re-opened. It was most fortunate that the accident occurred to the rear van, or a terrible calamity might have occurred. A curious fact is that the train did not do the slightest damage to the tube which crosses the river. LANTERN LECTURE.
