A WELL-DESERVED PROMOTION.-WE heartily con- gratulate the Rev. R. T. Jones, B.A., vicar of Glanogwen, Bethesda, upon his appointment, by the Bishop of Bangor, to the residentiary canonry in Bangor Cathedral, which became vacant owing to the death of Canon Hughes. The new canon is a native of Lampeter, and is a graduate of St. David's College. He was ordained in 1885 his first curacy being Pwllheli. In 1888 he was offered Bie vicariate of Nevin by Colonel Wynne Finch, which he opened. He had been there long before he re-epened the Mission Church, secured the ser- vices of an additional curate, and collected £2,000 towards a new church for which a valuable site was given by the •-Ion. I' G Wyrifi In fe was appointed a surrogate for the diocese of Ban- gor. After doing good work at Nev'n, the rev gentleman was in 1898 offered the benefice of Glanogwen by the late Lord Penrhyn. Very soon he set to work, and laboured energetically with the restoration of the church and schools in connection with the celebration of the church's jubilee at a cost of £1,189. In 1905 he was appointed secretary of the Diocesan Church Defence Society in suc- cession to the late Canon Hughes, and all who know him will testify to the splendid efforts he made on behalf of the Church, and his trenchant speeches all over the country. He was appointed rural dean of Arllechwedd in 1910, and was one of the four witnesses who represented the diocese of Bangor before the Church Commission. He is a member of the Bangor and Beaumaris Board of Guardians, having been twice returned unopposed. The ser- vices at Glanogwen are renowned for their hearti- ness, and the choir is considered one of the best in Wales. May Canon Jones be blessed with a long life to carry on the good work which is so near and dear to his heart.
