[George Q. Cannon]

The usual day for holding our semi-annual Conference. We held the Conference in the Temperance Hall which our people hired for the occasion. As an instance of the change of feeling that has taken place in this place I may mention that efforts have been made in past times to get this Hall to hold meetings in and as much as £3 have been offered for its use for one day; but without avail. For this day's use we have to pay only 15/-, and yet there has been no change in the owners. The choir sang beautifully in both Welsh and English.
