Mr Conway, in presenting his .accounts, re¬ ported that the nett receipts of the endow¬ ment for the Llandudno Parish Charities accounts were £9 10s. 4d., which were dispersed among 41 people, 33 aged people receiving 4s. lid. each and four aged mar¬ ried couples receiving 6s. 4d. The balance sheet' of the offertories .and collections of .all the churches was then pro¬ duced. The Rector remarked that there were some encouraging signs. The debt had been rduced from £112 8s. 9d. to £83 7s. 4d„ and the entire cost of the electric lighting had now been paid, which has been done by the liberality of the residents. The Rector nominated Dr. Dalton as his warden for the coming year, and Mr Conway was eleced as the people's warden. Several new sidesmen were appointed, the list of which appears in this issue. This concluded the business of the Vestry, and in thanking those present for their .attendance, the Rector expressed a hope that the debt which hampered them would soon be paid off.
