The Liandudno Bazaar of 1863. A SEMI-HEROIC BALLAD. BV IHE MAX WITH A KNAPSACK. A copy has been sent for publication of the following somewhat satiric-ail, ballad issued in 1863. There are but comparatively few now diving whoi (remember the sensation created in local circles by its appearance: — God bless the Queen, and save us a'l From taxes, debt aiiot war, At L'anidudno there did befal A mighty great Bazaar.

So David told the rebel Jews, In Hebrew song sublime, Which Tate and Brady did misuse By "doing" itito, rhyme.

-<!> MANX CHOIRS TRYING EXPERIENCE. GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION OF A TRIP TO LLANDUDNO. The following report of the journey of the Douglas Male Choristers to sing at the Llandudno Musical Festival is taken from the "Isle of Man Weekly Times," written by their special correspondent, who accompanied the party: — On Saturday Mr Noah Moore took the Male Voice Choristers to Llandudno ot join in the choral competition for male voices at the Llandudno Musical Fes- tival. This is the first festival that has been promoted in Llandudno, and the Committee hope to make it an annual affair, a hope which should be realised, judging1 by the success that attended Saturday's gathering. The Tynwald had been chartered from the Isle of Man Steam Packet Co. to take the choir from Douglas, and the, public were invited to join in the trip. Un- fortunately the weather turned out most unpropitious, for though there was a bright sun there was also a, whole easter- ly gale, which prevented many people from venturingr on the sea. The boat was to leave at 8-30, and at that time the wind was billowing very strong, and waves were breaking over the Victoria Pier. Wo were told that once outside the bay it would not be so bad; but, nothwithstand- ing this assurance, many people would not venture on board, including1 some members of the choir. Under the circum- stances no one would have pa.rticula.rly blamed the choir if they had abandoned the trip, hut there was no talk of that, and a to'eg ram coming from Llandudno that it woui d be possible to land, off we went. It speaks well for the pluck of the choir that they sailed on such a day when most of them were almost bound to be sick, to compete againt three of the finest choir in Ehgiancl. To enter at all required great pluck, but to sail on such a day showed that they are made of the right stuff, and that the old Viking blood, notwithstanding the. cry about the decad- ence of the race, issti11 to the fore. We left Douglas at a quarter to nine, and soon after we our break- fast left us. Not all at once, but in one and two's and three's we dropped out and paid that tribute to King Neptume which he demands from mortals who ventures on his dominion when he is in angry mood. Of the 140 people on board, few failed to yield their tribute. The pro- mised better conditions when we got futhe.r out were not realised; indeed the wind increased, and every minute the waves .broke over the boat, so it was im- possible to stop on deck; unless under shelter, and even then an odd wave found its way over the deck houses on to the sheltered side. Some lay, without care or thougjht, where the spray wet them, regardless of earthly things or of the future. Singing was far from their thoughts, and Llandudno a hopeless for- gotten dream. Oh, they were bad! Through it all there was, however, plenty of fun, even the most sick ones brighten- ing on occasions. Mai de mer is a strange thing), and it is strange what delight can be got after you have been bad yourself watching another go under. However, everything comes to an end, even seasick- ness, and soon after noon the Welsh head- lands loomed up through a thick mist. The dinner bell rang. Stewards are a heartless lot. No one, however, respond- ed to the first call, and it was quarter of an hour later when we were getting into shelter that the few lucky ones sat down to the menu provided. When we got to the pier there was a heavy seai, and some doubted whether after an we could land. Capt. Penwell brought his ship up splen- didly, and amid a good deal of shouting from the pier officials we got ropes on board. Disembarking had to be done I quickly, as the boat was bumping heavily against the pier, and as soon as the last man was ashore the Tynwald left the stage- and anchored in the bay. Quarter of an hour on shore put new life in the worst of us. and then the im- portant question of d'nner arose. Our party at least struck it lucky, and had all that man ('üu' d desire, after which we ad- journed to the concert. J
WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE. LLANDUDNO SUFFRAGISTS COM- MENCE WINTER WORK. MEETING IN THE CAMBRIDGE RESTAURANT1. A general meeting of the members of the Llandudno Branch of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies was held at the Cambridge Restaurant on Monday evening. Miss Wright, Presfylfa" presid- ing over a. fair attendance. SUMMER WORK. After a few introductory remarks by Miss Wright, the acting1 honorary secre- tary, Dr. Edith Guest, was asked, to give her report of the work during the sum- mer months. Dr. Guest said that the time covered by the report was from March to the end of September. Included among the many items alluded to were the dividing of the Union in Federations and the decision of the North Wales Societies to become asso- ciated with the Liverpool and Cheshire Federation rather than form a federation exclusively for North Wales. The so-called Conciliation Bill wa.s also referred to and the steps taken to get the first and second readings carried detailed, which culminated in a wire to the Society's president (Mr Win. Jones, M.P.) in- structing him on the eve of the debate to "Fight well for the cause to-clay." A CARDIFF LADY'S HOLIDAY. The work of a lady from Cardiff was L next referred to, who devoted her holiday of three weeks to propaganda. work in Llandudno. It was not possible to arrange any meeting, but the lady paid house, to house visits to members and probable members; gained fifteen new subscribers to the journal of the Union "Common Cause," and 61 pamphlets; got three ministers to promise to have suffrage de- bates in the literary societies; induced three newsagents to stock "Common Cause," distributed 2,000 leaflets and had 103 suffrage interviews.—(Applause.) Dr. Guest further read an appeal for support to place the journal, "Common Cause" on a sound financial basis, and concluded with appealing to some member to undertake the secretarial duties of the local branch. Miss Wright stated that Dr. Guest had to the great regiret of the committee resigned the secretarial duties, and on her motion a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the retiring official for her work and a further one accorded the ladv worker from Cardiff. Miss Eakin gave an address on the re- organisation of the Union, and the rea- sons for joining the Liverpool and Cheshire Federation. The subscription payable to the Federation she' said was ten per cent of the annual subscriptions of each branch, and for that amount the North Wales branches got the benefit of the many speakers of the Liverpool Federation. The great difficulty, how- ever, was to get a WTelsh-speaking organ- iser, and the Federation would welcome a man or woman capable of undertaking organisation work in Welsh districts. Mis,s Eskrigige, of Liverpool, gave an address, during which she gave a resume of the reasons why the movement for the extension of the franchise to women had come into existence and dealt with the provisions of so-called Conciliation Bill. There was still a slight hope, she said, that the Bill was not dead, and urged the members of the Llandudno 'Branch to do what they could to influence members of Parliament and the Government in its favour. In conclusion she advocated a system of making. use of the press to further the cause to a much greater ex- tent than had hitherto been done. On the motion of Miss Wright, second- ed by Mrs St. Leger, Miss E:skrigge was heartily thanked for her address. 0 Mr Rogel" Dawson asked why the Con- ciliation Bill proposed to enfranchise women householders and left out the ser- vice voters. Miss Elskrigge said that was done to gain the Conservative support. The Bill was not what the Suffrage Society wanted, but the best they could get. What they want- ed was the removal of the sex disability which was a very different thing- to what was proposed in the Bill. During a short discussion that ensued on the question of the Press, the "Adver- tiser" was referred to by more than one speaker as having been of great assistance to the cause in Llandudno, and arrange- ments were suggested to the, committee for the debates with Literary Societies. It was also decided that the Society should set apart two nights before Christ- mas for discussions on suffrage matters. Monday, November 14th, was fixed for the first and December 12th for the second. LIBRARY SUBSCRIPTIONS.—With regard to the subscriptions which have been received and promised in aid of the furnishing of the Library, instructions have been given to the Clerk to write to the donors expressing regret that, as the appeal for funds has not come, up to ex- pectation, the Library Committee feel that the only fair course is to return the sub- scriptions received and to make other ar- rangements to raise the required funds. HOSPITAL MAINTEINANCE.-The Hospital monthly report was presented and considered at a meeting of the Health Committee. The, Clerk called attention to several large bills for maintenance, and he read Letters from the debtors with refer- ence thereto. Consideration thereof was adjourned until Mr Little's return from his holidays. A letter was also read from the Hospital Matron, suggesting that in- stead of appointing another probationer in I the room of Nurse Green, who is leaving a partly trained Nurse capable of taking charge of a ward should be appointed at a commencing salary of JE20 a year. The Matron stated that apart from other ad- vantages to be derived the cost of a pri- vate nurse could often be avoided.—The recommendation was adopted.

LLANDUDNO SILVER BAND. THE NEW BANDMASTER, Mr F. Lucio Traversi took up his duties as bandmaster of the Llandudno Silver Band on the 1st instant. Prior to his appointment by the Llandudno Ur- ban Council Mr Traversi trained several bands at Barrow-in-Furness, ■ and brought them to a high state of proficiency. Mr Traversi is a, native of New Zea- land, where he gained for himself a. good reputation in the Brass Band world. The Band is now carried on under the auspices of the Council, and Mr Coun- cillor Pierce Jones is the chairman of the Band Management Committee.
THE AUTUMN CONCERTS. MISS LUCY NUTTALL. The eventful and thoroughly successful second Autumn Concert Season at L laia- dudno is drawing to a close, and the final concerts, it is hoped, will turn out to be a fine climax to a most enjoyable three weeks' entertainments in the Pier Pavil- ion. On Friday night Mr Coleman and Miss Dorothy Silk will sing, and our read- ers are advised not to miss this concert if they can avoid it. Miss Stilk. a very pro- mising young singer from the Midlands, deserves the best hearing that can be accorded her. The Saturday night concert will be of special interest owing to the visit of Miss Lucy Nuttall, the rising artiste whose singing was so highly appreciated at the closing concerts last year, and who, since then, has been studying in France. At this concert, also, Mr James Coleman wilii appear, and the season will conclude with a sacred concert on Sunday night, at which the vocalists will be Miss Lucv Nuttall and Mr James Coleman. v With regard to next season, the Pier directors have already arranged with Mr Arthur Payne to conduct their concerts until October 8th, and have intimated that the Autumn Concerts Committee may take over the concerts for the re- mainder of the month on the. payment of the same sum for out of pocket expenses as is being paid this year. The directors a.ke no charge whatever beyond the actual cost of lighting, heating, attendance, etc.
4" LIVERPOOL AND NORTH WALES STEAMSHIP CO. 6 PER CENT DIVIDEND MAIN- TAINED. The report on the 20th year's working states that the service has been performed with regularity, and the. steamers have been well kept up. Before the commence- ment of the season new boilers were sup- plied to La Marguerite by Messrs. Cam- mell, Laird, and Co., Birkenhead, and this steamer resumed her position on the station at Whitsuntide. The receipts from passenger fares, season tickets, and catering show an increase as compared with those of the previous year, indicating that the season has been a satisfactory one. After deducting £ 8,046 for depre- ciation, the amount available for divi- dend and other purposes, including the balance brought forward, is P,6,698, out of which the directors recommend the payment of a dividend of 6 per cen-t per annum, free of income tax, carrying for- ward £ 2,876. as against £ 1,646 brought in. Recent dividends have been:—For 1906-7 5 per cent, for 1907-8 4 per cent, and for 1908-9 6 per cent. A weekly paper suggests that women make the best spues. We suppose it is because they generally look well.
THE MIKADO TO BE PRODUCED AT THE GRAND THEATRE. The Mikado (Miss Lena Thomas' third annual production), which is being eager- ly anticipated .by the Colwyn Bay and Llandudno public, is making great strides towards .completion,- and promises to be Miss Lena. Thomas' most successful production. The company numbers 50, and work most happily and harmonious- ly. Mr E. Thornley Dodge as the, Lord High Executioner will undoubtedly win fresh laurels, for the part suits him to perfection. The special scenery is new, and the costumes supplied 'by Messrs. Liberty and Co., through their Colwyn fBay agent, Messrs. D. Allen and Sons, and Messrs. Birkenshaw, of Liverpool. Arrangements have already heenmade to divide the profit between a, charity in Colwyn Bay and Llandudno, though it is well-known the enormous expense attach- ed to the production of opera. With Mr ,H. Lyell-Taylor as conductor and Mr Thornley-Dodge as stage man- y zn ager and producer, the Mikado cannot fail to be a great success. Seats may now be ibooked at Messrs. Wagstaff's, 89, 'Mostyn Street.
