SIR, „ With reference to your report of this fire, in your last week's issue, will you kindly allow me to make a correction, so that honour may be given unto those to whom it is due. I speak with all due respect of the Denbigh Fire Brigade, but if Mr. Clift had had to depend upon that body, the whole of his farm buildings would have been burnt to the ground. I maintain that the praise is due to P.O. Lewis and tiie willing helpers of the village of Trefnant, who had been labouring at the fire for an hour and a quarter, and had it completely under control, before the arrival of the brigade, I do not write this from hearsay. I am, Yours truly, AN EYE WITNESS. TREFNANT VILLAGE AND VICINITY. To the Editor of the '!NORTH WALES TIMES.' SIR, We. the inhabitants of the above, after being harrased and persecuted for years, have at last determined to come out of our shell and let the world know some of our grievances. We really believe that we are the most badly used and miserable people in North Wales. Some time ago, you alluded in your columns to the light- ing of the village.' We are sorry to say that we are still in the same hole, except that the Council have spent a few more pounds in vain. Now, with regard to the water supply, it is disgraceful—often during the day-time not a drop, but a pint or two per inhabitant if they stay up at night to wait for it dripping. Again, look at the condition of the roads and streets, which are under the control of several different councils, corporations, and private in- dividuals. It is about time the whole were vested in one body, which could then be ap- proached but at present, each seem tojviejwith the other as to who can place a ruck of stones' in the most inconvenient place for car. riages, peaestrians, and others. As to our drainage system, the ieast said the better, because we have not got one; and talk about Sweet Edinboro', I smell thee noo, it is not in the hunt with us during the summer time. We trust you will publish this. Perhaps it may help to rectify some of our grievances; if so, we will at another time, let you know about others—their name is Legicn. Yours truly, REPRESENTATIVE.
WREXHAM GUARDIANS AND THE NEW VACCINATION ACT. STRONG CONDEMNATION. On Thursday, at a meeting of the Wrex' ham Board of Guardians, under the presi dency of Captain Griffith-Boscawen, the guardians were occupied tor some consider able time discussing the Vaccination Act. The Chairman sakl the new act would mean in that union an increased expendi ture of between £ 150 and £200. He was very glad to find that there were very few conscientious objectors in that district. On the motion o' Mr Clarke (Hclt), seconded by Mr. W-. Wilde (Rhosnessney), it was unanimously decided to ask for an increased grant from the Im perialExchequer in consequence of the additional expendi- ture entailed upon the various boards of guardians by the Act. Mr. Bowen (Cefn) next proposed that the board was strongly of opinion that great danger might arise by reason of the con- science clause, tIle Local Government Board be requested to lay before Parlia ment the question of reconsidering the vac- cination laws, with a view to making them compulsory. Mr. Kyffin (Rhos) seconded The Clerk said that up to the end of the' year there bad only been four exemption certificates granted in the whole of the union. The Chairman said he was very glad to hear that. He hoped the Government would reconsider the matter before they were obliged to do so through a terrible outbreak of small pox, an" vhich was not a very unlikely event. The resolution was carried unanimously. The Vice-chairman (Aiderm n Simon Jones) next moved a resolution petitioring both Houses of Parliament to repeal the Vaccina- tion Act of this year, as it was not only vexa- tious, but distinctly retrograde in character, and so opposed to sanitary experie nce as to be little less than a n-itioiial calamity. Statistics were very convincing, he said and how would they like to go back to the good old days when in England 2.000 deaths took c,iice every year in every million of the population from small- pox? He considered it grossly unfair that the excellent state of affairs exist ng in Wales prior to the passing of Lh- Act should be attempted to be disturbed. There had not been a single prosecution under the Act in the Wrexham Union for at least a quarter of a century. The last return.showing the percentage of children not vaccinated was that of 1895, and he found that in Denbighshire the percentage was only 3.7, and this waa onh beaten by Anglesea. with 3 per cent. In England a different state of things existed, and he found that the percen tage was as high as 76.5 at Leicester,.and 63 in Northampton. He certainly thought Wales ought to have exemption from the Act. Mr. J. R. Burton (Minera) seconded the reso- lution. The Chairman said he noticed that the Leicester Guardians had stated that they had not carried out the old act,, and did not intend to obey the new one. He believed this was also the decision at Northampton. Several boards had failed to carry out the old act, and the Local Government Board took proceedings in one case, and several of the guardians were sent to jail; but the Local Government Board took no further actions, and the guardians did just as they liked. It was such actions that had led to the introduction of the present act. The resolution was carried unanimously; and the three motions were o rde ed to be sent to the Local Government Board and the members of Parliament for the county.

Gentlemen,—I beg to inform you that I have derived unspeakable benefit from GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS. I was so weak when I first took it that I could not walk to the fireside without the assistance of my mother, although I was RECOMMEND at the time taking medicine I had from doctors, which did me no good. One day a friend told me of GWILYM EVANS' TO QUININE BITTRBS and after I had taken it I felt better in a short time. I have unbounded faith in GWILYM EVANS' EVKRYONE. QUININE BITTERS, and I thoroughly be- lieve that I would have been dead were it not for the fact that I took it; and I wish to recommend it as the best remedy I ever had for weakness, and I wish everyone to try it, as I am certain they will derive benefit by so doing—Yours faithfully, ELLEN WILLIAMS.

RHIWLAS EMPLOYEES' SUPPER. On Saturday last, the workmen on the Rhiwlas Estate were treated in accordance with Mr. Price's annual custom, to a sub- stantial supper at the Lion Hotel. About 80 sat at the tables, and the treat seemed to be thoroughly enjoyed. The meeting which followed, at which Mr. E Watkins, the Estate Agent presided, included! songs, addresses, and the usual toasts to the donors of the feast. RECHABITE FRIENDLY SOCIETY. The anniversary of the above society was celebrated at Tegid Chapel School Room, on Friday evening last, when a large number of members sat at the tables to partake of the substantial fare, catered by Mrs. Evans, Tremaran. After clearing the tables, a miscellaneous meeting was held under the presidency of Mr. Thomas Owen, when songs were contributed by Misses M. E. Ro- berts, Union House, M. C. Da vies, Pare House, M. J. Davies, Ser.en office, and Mr. R, Thomas, Plasey street. Addresses were delivered by Mr. Williams, Cardiff, Mr. E. Davies, bookbinder, and by the president and secretary (Mr. D. R. Roberts). A vote I of thanks to the doctor for his care and attendance during the years, and to Mrs. Evans for her services as caterer, brought the proceedings to a close. We are glad to understand that the society continues to thrive, and that it has a substantial balance I' in hand, RAILWAY EMPLOYEES' SUPPER. On Thursday evening last, at the Bull's Head Hotel, an excellent menu was provided by the manager (Mr. Jennings), to the railway officials, and young men of the town, numbering in all about 30. The duty of carv- ingthe meat devolved upon Mr. John Edwards, butcher, who, needless to say, performed his work in a masterly style. The host made a point of having everything in 4 apple pie' order, and there was no lack either of attention or sustenance, at the table. At the close of the feast the genial District Medical Officer of the Railway (Dr. Wil- liams) appropriately addressed the company, and proposed a toast to the Host and Hostess. This was unanimously taken up. As the Doctor had to leave, Mr. Allen, sta- tion-master presided over the miscellaneous meeting, when songs were contributed by Messrs. H. J. Durman, J. Jones, Alfred Dav- ies, R. L. Davies (Corwen), W. J. Rowlands, W. E. Roberts, J. Grainger, and William Jones. Mr. Hawkins gave a selection on the mandoline and a violin solo was given by Mr. David Davies. Mr. Durman presided at the piano, and altogether a very pleasant evening was spent.
A SUCCESSFUL YOUNG MUSICIAN. At the Trinity College examination recently held in Liverpool, we are pleased to see that Miss Blodwen Roberts, daughter of Mr. D. G. Roberts, Manchester house, Abergele, was placed in the pass list with 78 marks. Two more marks would have meant honours, so that this young lady's 'pass' must be considered very satisfactory for one so young. We under. stand that Miss Blodwen is the pupil of Miss Pope, Brooklands. APPOINTMENT OF SURVEYOR. At a special meeting of the Urban District Council, held on Wednesday night, under the presidency of Dr. J. H Wolstenholme, J.P., there were present Messrs. Thomas Williams (vice-chairman), Isaac Roberts, J. Edwards, Pierce Davies, J. Pierce, Edward Williams, Tnomas Evans, G. Perkins, J. Hannah, and E. A. Crabbe (clerk). The only businefs on the agenda was the ap- pointment oi a surveyor, inspector, and col- lector. There were 17 applicants for the ap- pointment. A discussion arose as to the applicants' knowledge of Welsh, and it was resolved to ad. here to the terms of the advertisement. Mr. Thomas Evans expressed a desire to call Mr. Davies, an applicant from South Wales, before the Council. This was done; and Mr. Evans proposed that Mr. Davies be appointed, but failed to find a seconder. Mr. Pierce Davies proposed that Mr. John Williams, Fron Felen, Abergele, be appointed; and Mr. Hannah seconded. The Chairman observed thai Mr. Williams' testimonials scarcely ]>" me out that his quali- fications were in accordance with the require- ments of the Local Government Board, and spoke in favour of Mr. Robert E. Hughes, of Rhyl. Mr. George Perkins moved, and Mr. Thomas Williams seconded, that Mr. Hughes be ap pointed. On a division, ,ix voted for Mr. Hughes, and one for Mr. Williams; and Mr. Hughes was accordingly appointed.
