THE CRAFTY TACTICS OF ROME." MORE LETTERS ON .THE CONTINUITY QUESTION. To the Editor of the BARRY DOCK NEWS." SIR,-Your correspondent who has chosen the singular nom de p-lume, "A Priest of the Undivided Church," is not a very formidable assailant of Catholicism, whether he be an Anglican clergy- man or a Baptist minister, or whatever form of Protestantism he may be attached to. All his unctious bombast about The crafty tactics of Rome will not suffice to blind your readers to the crafty tactics" of this gentleman himself. He tells us that" The history of the pre-reforma- tion English Church records continuous resistance to the encroachments of Rome." Now, this is a mere parrot-phrase derived from a continuity handbook of the English Church Defence Associa- tion and your readers will be able to gauge its historic value when they have read the following authoritative declaration of the ancient Catholic Church of England. It is an extract from a decree of the Synod of Exeter, which met in the year 1287 In case of doubt recourse should he had to the most holy Roman Church, which, by the grace of Almighty God. having the authority of apostolical tradition, is proved never to have erred from the right path and her decree must be awaited, lest anyone, by approving what she disapproves, in the judgment of Catholics be proved a heretic. It is not lawful either to teach or to hold other- wise than we see the Roman Church, the mother of all Churches, to follow and to hold." (Wilkins' Concilia, vol. ii., p. 155.) When my undivided friend has disposed of this point, I shall be happy to furnish him with con- vincing particulars of the relative state of morality in Catholic and Protestant countries, concerning which subject also he has yet a great deal to learn. -I am. &c., JOHN HOBSON MATTHEWS. Cardiff, 24th February, 1894. To the Editor of the BARRY DOCK NEWS." SIR.-The reply of A Priest of the Undivided Church to me re-calls tha adage-" Abuse is no argument." He speaks of my deliberately attack- ing his position, while he deliberately went out of his way, in a letter dealing with Dissent, to attack the Catholic Church. If Catholics do not reply to such attacks it is said they cannot. If they do they are called crafty, Jesuitical, &c." He makes a rash judgment in implying that I should not have replied to him unless I felt sure he would have no ehance of answering. I should have done so in any case. The copy in which his letter ap- peared was, I believe, the first I have ever seen of your paper. I am very surprised that he denies that St. Augustine founded English pre-reforma- tion Christianity, because the present Archbishop of Canterbury maintains that he (Dr Benson) is St. Augustine's successor. It does not witness to an Undivided Church when its chief bishop and one of its priests differ as to its founder in England. I wonder what is the opinion of its head, Her Majesty. I observe your correspondent takes good care not to refer to my quotation of the pre-re- formation bishop's oath, or the origin of the title Defender of the Faith," or the holy water stoups and altar stones I mentioned as remaining in pre-reformation churches, because all these are so many proofs that the Church of England is not the pre-reformation Catholic Church of England, but, as I stated and state, the foundation of Henry VIII. He ad- mits that king to have been bad, but charges it on the Catholic religion, in which he was educated. It is a remarkable fact, on the other side, that Henry's badness publicly developed itself in conflict with the Catholic Church when she informed him he could not be divorced from his lawful wife. As to Magna Charta, I know that one of its provisions was against the interference of the Crown in religious matters, so it hardly becomes a minister of a Church, whose head is the Sovereign, to quote it on his side. I can also quote the very respectful letter which Edward III. wrote to the Pope protesting against the number of foreigners appointed to positions in the Church in England, calling the Pope Our Most Holy Father in Christ and Lord. Pope by Divine Providence, Chief Bishop of the Holy Roman and Catholic Church, and saying how obedient England had always been to the Holy See. I suppose this is what the writer calls boldly refusing to obey the Pope. As to sameness of religion and the dogmas of the Immaculate Conception and Papal Infallibility, what he quotes from Keenan's Catechism was perfectly correct when written. He falls into the usual error of Protestants they are not aware that the Catholic Church is a living teaching voice." As long as there is no definition of any special doctrine one can believe it or not, but. at times-generally when there has been much questioning about some particular doctrine-the Church exercises the right to teach all nations what our Lord gave her in a special manner, and after a most careful examination defines what is to be believed as dogma. The doctrines of the Immaculate Conception -and Papal Infallibility had always been most generally believed and acted on throughout the Church, but until their definition one was not obliged to believe them under pain of sin, and people could and did dispute them. The first example of this defining power is to be found in the fifteenth chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, which describes the Council of Jerusalem, when, after much disputing," St. Peter arose and settled the question of the non-necessity of circumcision, and then a letter was written to the Gentile converts on the matter, in which are the words. It hath seemed good to the Holy Ghost and to us," and so, ever since, when there has been much disputing," the Church has exercised her defining right. The fact that Protestantism has no such living teaching authority to settle disputed doctrines is the cause of its splitting up into so many sects. I think the writer must have forgotten that the origin of the United States was partly owing to the Puritan Pilgrim Fathers who left England to avoid persecution, and the sufferings of John Bunyan, and the Quakers and Baptists in England when he asks what I refer to as Church of England persecution of dissenters. As to the fires of Smithfield, I do not defend them, but I would remind him that the Pope's legate, Cardinal Role, Archbishop of Canterbury, and all the other English Catholic bishops (excepting Gardiner and Bonner, who had both apostatized under Henry VIII., and returned to the Catholic Church under Mary) spent their time in preventing the persecution from spreading, and that the confessor of Philip of Spain preached publicly against it. I may add that the number of Catholics put to death by Queen Elizabeth was so great that the executions under Mary were nothing to it. As to the Spanish Inquisition, the Spaniards have always had the name of being a specially cruel people. The Inquisition in Spain was corrupted to a political engine of cruelty, and as such used by the Government. Your correspondent evidently does not know that in the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella those Sovereigns had a correspondence with the Pope about it, in which they expressed their vexation that their subjects fled from the Spanish Inquisition to Rome to obtain the Pope's protection. As to the present apparent state of certain Catholic countries, I say scum always rises," and Good never makes any noise, and noise never means any good." It is those who find the restraints of the Catholic Church too much for them who are in evidence. Those who practice their religion are quiet and law-abiding, and one does not hear of them and their good works.- I am, Sir, yours faithfully, A. E. P. Ross. To the Editor of the "BARRY DOCK NEWS." SIR,-In your issue of February 16th there appeared a letter from A. E. P. Ross, in which he states that English pre-reformation Christianity came with St. Augustine from Rome, and that all English Archbishops and Bishops took the oath of allegiance to the Holy Apostolic Roman Church and our Lord (iv.) the Pope." I would remind A. E. P. Ross that St. Augustine found Christian Bishops when he arrived here. (Beda Hist. Eccles. 1, p. 25). Bingham says, Indeed it would appear that there were more bishops in England and Wales at the time of the Saxon invasion (i.e., 150 years before the arrival of Augustine) than there are at this day," (Antiq. ix., vi., p. 20). With reference to the Oath of Allegiance, I would respectfully point out that in the beginning there was no such oath or any other, nor any promise of fidelity or obedience made by the bishops to the Pope, but only a bare profession of the common faith, even such as he also made to them by his encyclical letters and afterwards, when promises began, they were only of canonical obedience in geneeral terms." (Father Walsh Defence of the Church of Rome. Sect. 25). The Oath taken at present by Bishops of the Roman Church was set forth by Clement VIII., A.D. 1592. Your correspondent tries to sneer at ''that wretched being," Henry VIlI., having lost his faith." It is well to remember that Henry VIII. never claimed to consecrate bishops or to administer the sacraments, but those monsters of iniquity, Popes John XII., John XXIII., and Alexander VI., did, and claimed to be the source of all spiritual and ecclesiastical authority. Of John XII. we read that he lived in open adultery with the matrons of Rome, that the Lateran Palace was turned into a school for prostitutes, and that his rape of virgins and widows had deterred the female pilgrims from visiting the tomb of S. Peter, lest, in the devout act, they should be violated by his successor." (Gibbon, chap. xlix., and Lintprand, lib. vi., c. 6.) For the character of John XXIII, I refer your readers to the French historian Dupin,who tells us this representative of our Lord was accused before the Council of Constance, A.D. 1415, of being lewd, dissolute, a liar, and addicted to every vice which could be named, that he had raised himself to the Pontificate by causing his predecessor to be poisoned, that he had com- mitted fornication with maids, adultery with wives, and incest with his brother's wife, and as to the faith of the Church, he had maintained that there is no future life, but that the soul dies with the body." (See Dupin, Cent. xv.) He was deposed by the Council. Of Alexander VI. we read "None of the eastern, none of the Roman emperors, however lewd and debauched, exceeded Alexander in lewd- ness and debauchery." (Burchard, Diary p. 77, also see Guicciard, Mosheim, and Roscoe Life of Leo X.) I venture to say A. E. P. Ross will not be able to find any Bishop of the Church of England of whom such a description can be honestly given as is to be found written of the three Popes I have mentioned. Apologising for the length of this letter,—I am, &c., 9, A.C.K.
THE BATTLE OF LIFE. Brother, are you sad and weary Of your earthly toil and care ? Is your pathway overshadowed- All your life a blank despair ? If 'tis so, remember, others In this world, so blithe d-nd gay, Suffer, both from cold and hunger, Mental grief and heart decay. Think that this world's great Redeemer Had not where to lay His head, He whom Kings are proud to worship Had a manger foe His bed. Though this world is cold and dreary, Blessed thought, 'tis not our home 'Tis our lodging for a season- But a maze through which we roam. With these thoughts to cheer you onward, Make this world a sweet abode Struggle with each opposition That would daunt your purpose bold. Like the great men gone before you, Be not daunted by each care If you will but battle bravely You a place in Heaven will share. Live a life that those who follow, Thinking of you, well may say That your life shall be their pattern In their struggle day by day. Then when comes the day of reckoning, You will hear the cry Well done Enter thou and sit beside me," Thou hast fought and thou hast won." H.P.C.
PENARTH CONSERVATIVE I CLUB. The tenth annual meeting of the Penarth Con- servative Clut was held at the Clive Conservative Club, Windsor-road, on Thursday evening last. Mr J. Y. Strawson presided. The balance- sheet for the year ending December 31st, 1893, showing a deficit of about .£850, was read and adopted. The following gentlemen were elected directors:—Mr B. Clarke, Mr Thomas Morel, and Mr Websley, in the place of Captain Thompson, Mr J. H. Vellacott, Mr T. Morel, Mr Purnell, and Mr Wehrley, who retired in rotation. Mr Jefferies, the popular manager of the Clive Club, expressed his great satisfaction at the strides the club was making. Amongst those present at the meeting were Captain Thomp- son, Captain Hughes, Messrs L. Purnell, Boyer, May, J. Court, Vellacott, Wehrley, Wall, B. S. Clarke, Taverner (secretary), &c— Mr Boyer said he had a complaint to make. They had a guarantee with the bank (upon which they had traded for many years) signed by certain guarantors, of whom he was one. Certain directors of the company had seen fit to persuade the bank to press for payment of the sum guaranteed, with the result that there was now an action against himself. He thought it was very wrong of those directors to take upon themselves to advise the bank to take such action, and he proposed a vote of censure upon Messrs Hern, Vellacott, and Purnell.—The Chairman remarked that as the club was not in liquidation, the bank could not recover from Mr Boyer.—Mr Dunford seconded.—Mr Vellacott said that some time ago Captain Thompson, a director of the club, said if the other guarantors would pay their shares he would stand with them also. The guarantors with the exception of Mr Boyer came forward and paid the sum, and Mr Boyer had given them reason to commence the lawsuit, and he deserved all he could get. They paid their shares and Mr Boyer's as well, and now the club was asked to pass a vote of censure upon them.—Mr Purnell also protested against the motion. Captain Thompson was good enough to come forward and pay a share, and he thought Mr Boyer ought to be ashamed that he did not pay up as the rest did.—After some persuasion, Mr Boyer with- drew his motion.—Mr Vellacott hoped under the management of Mr Jeffries the newly-started club would succeed.—Mr Purnell seconded.—Mr Jeffries drew attention to the need of more exten- sive accommodation for billiard-rooms, gymnasium' dining accommodation, &c.
GENERAL UNION OF CARPEN- TERS k JOINERS, PENARTH. The annual dinner in connection with the members of the Windsor Lodge of the General Union of Carpenters and Joiners was held on Friday evening last at the Ship Hotel. Penarth. There was a large attendance, Mr Jenkin Llewellyn, vice-chairman of the School Board, presiding. There were also present-Messrs Sam Thomas, Johnshon (St. Fagans), R. Beavan, T. S. Lloyd, D. Corn well, L. Molineaux (Barry Dock), C. Tonkin. Captain Gibson, J. Richards, Thorne, T. Northey. W. Harris, J. Sandford, F. Bartlett, J. Stapleford, J. F. Pickford, T. Garrett. J. Stack, k. Escott, T. Griffiths, W. Kennard, T. Coney, T. Ramm, G. Groves, E. Roberts, W. Davies (presi. dent), W.Jeans, J.Evans, W. Smythe, D. Lord, J. Richards (sec.), &-c. Host James provided a, substantial and well-served repast, after which the chairman proposed -'The Queen and Royal Family" and "The Ministers of Religion."—Mr T. S. Lloyd next proposed "The Army, Navy and Auxilliary Forces," coupling with the toast the name of Sergeant-Instructor Tobin, who alluded to the fact that in 1889 he was the best shot in the British Army, in 1890 the best shot in Ireland, and in 1892 he beat the whole army with the revolver. (Applause.) Sergeant Bartlett, R.A., also responded. — Mr Creet, in proposing '• The Town and Trade of Penarth," said he was glad to know that the trade of the town was show- ing a certain amount of improvement. One thing- more than another ministered to the good of the community, and that was good houses, which they could not have without good workmen. (Ap- plause.)—Mr D. Cornwell, in responding, said some of them could remember the time when local trade was worse than it was at present. They should, therefore, take courage. He should be glad to prevent so much of the money earned in Penarth taken out of the town. He induced the Local Board to let the private improvement works in sections so that masons and others of the town might have an opportunity of tendering for the work. He was sorry to say it was not being carried out. and out of the last contract for £ 2,500 scarcely a penny was spent in Penarth, and the town and trade consequently suffered. There was another grievance, namely, that so many trimmers and other workmen were brought there to work when they had their own men standing by idle. All these things had a. tendency to keep Penarth in the background, because it took away the money which should be spent at home. (Hear, hear.)—Mr R. Beavan said he was sorry to differ from Mr Cornwell. The members of the Local Board were all actuated by a. desire to do the best thing they could for the town. The question of letting work in sections was found unworkable upon the ground of finance. The next point, with regard to the employment at the dock of Cardiff trimmers nstead of those from Penarth, even that was unworkable. Every merchant had his own gang of men, and those men followed the merctant's coal to whatever dock necessary, and if that merchant sent his ships to Penarth, Barry, or Cardiff, the men had to follow them.—Mr Sam Thomas also responded, and congratulated the town on the action of the Local Board in adopting the Free Libraries' Act. By so doing the Local Board had conferred a great privilege upon the town. With reference to the work done at the dock, as Mr Beavan had said. they were unable to interfere. Penarth and Barry were free trade ports, and they were utterly powerless to inter- fere. On the other hand, they must recollect that. Penarth men were wanted at Cardiff, and they brought back Cardiff money to Penarth. Many men who worked at Barry lived at Penarth, and spent their money there. The proposed inter- mediate school would be of great advantage to Penarth. He was glad to tell them there was a. prospect of a very good year's work at the dock. (Applause.)—The Chairman having read letters of apology for absence from the chairman of tho Local Board and Mr Jefferies, Mr Thorne proposed Success to the Windsor Lodge." coupling with the toast the name of Mr W. Davies, chairman.— Mr Davies said they were progressing very well, and during the last five years had increased one- third. The advantages accruing from unionism were apparent to everyone, and, as unionists, they should endeavour to get machinery taxed in some way. (Cheers.) They had now fifty or sixty men dut of work in Cardiff owing to the use of machinery, and he thought it time something were done in the way of protection. He was glad to say the two lodges in Penarth were getting more united, and he thought if they continued in the same spirit they would become one in the end. — Mr Elkington pro- posed the toast of Kindred Societies." and MrL. Molineaux. Barry Dock. responded. He had, he said, been connected with trade societies for the past 25 years, and although carrying on business he had always kppt up his connection with his old society. The benefits to be derived from unionism could not be over estimated. (Hear, hear.)-Other toasts followed, and songs were sung by Messrs Tonkin, E. Roberts, Pickford, Sawby. Creet, Lewis, Wheatley, &c.
OFFENCE BY A PENARTH CAPTAIN. At Penarth Police-court on Monday last (before Colonel Guthrie and Mr T. Morel), Captain J. F. Leggat, master of the steamship Cerigo, belonging to the port of Liverpool, was charged, under the Carriage of Grain Act, 1880, with that he did not, while taking a cargo from the Black Sea to the port of Glasgow, between the 29th October and the 27th November last, supply the vessel with proper shifting boards to make the same grain-tight. Mr Ivor Vachell prosecuted on behalf of the Board of Trade, and Mr H. M. Ingledew, Cardiff, defended. Mr Vachell explained there were other charges under the same Act, but the Board of Trade did not wish to press them.—Charles Baker, deputy superintendent of mercantile marine, Cardiff, having proved the signature of the defendant, Captain William Henry Willoughby, surveyor to the Board of Trade, Glasgow, deposed to examining the steamship Cerigo on November 27th. She was laden with a cargo of barley in bulk. She was a single deck ship so far as the Grain Act was con- cerned. With bulk grain the holds should be divided into two compartments. Between the top of the shifting boards and the beams there were several inches of open space, more or less, in each case, and thus the grain was allowed to flow. In reply to Mr Ingledew, witness said when the steamer reached Glasgow the cargo had not shifted, and the vessel was upright.-Frederick Jaero, another surveyor, of Glasgow, corroborated.-For the defence, Mr Ingledew claimed reasonable pre- cautions had been taken, and the cargo had not shifted in any way.—The Bench said there was little doubt that there had been a breach of the Act, but as reasonable precautions had evidently been made they would take this into consideration and fine defendant only £5. < '—
GRAND CONCERT AT PENARTH. On Wednesday evening last Mr C. Emlyn Jones, the rising young Welsh tenor, with his celebrated London concert party, paid a return visit to Penarth, and again attracted a crowded and delighted house. The hall was tastefully decorated, and the stage arrangements were very effective. On the appear- ance of the party to open the concert with the chorus, There is dew for the flow'ret," they re- ceived an enthusiastic reception. Mr. Emlyn Jones was in fine voice, completely bringing down the house with his rendering of Oh, how I love thee." Madame Emlyn Jones, who was heard for the first time as soloist, is the happy possessor of a very pure and powerful contralto voice, and she did full justice to her songs. During the evening, Madame Jones was presented with a beautiful bouquet of flowers by Mr A. G. J. Fudge. The other artistes, who appeared to the best possible advantage, were Miss Nellie Hill, Miss Myfawny Williams, Miss Polly Collins, Miss Mary Jenkins, Mr Iago Lewis, R.A.M., Miss Lizzie Price, and Miss Edith Goss.
THE ALLEGED ATTEMPT AT PROCURATION AT BARRY. FURTHER PARTICULARS OF THE AFFAIR. Further inquiry into the alleged attempt (as commented upon in the Barry Dock New., last week) to decoy, for immoral purposes. a servant girl at Barry Dock, show that the matter did not proceed far enough to enable the police to interfere. There is little doubt that an attempt was made to get hold of the girl, but as she, happily, escaped the toils laid for her, there is only too good reason for the conclusion that the man who intended to betray her must also escape. The circumstances appear to be as follows :—A Somersetshire girl, about seventeen years of age, entered service at Barry Dock some time ago. She proved a steady, well-behaved girl, but, being taken with a fit of home-sickness, determined to leave. A day or two before her notice was up a man called at the house and contrived to get into conversation with the girl. He asked her how she liked Barry, was told she did not like it. and was leaving, and then he, with apparent gene- rosity, offered the girl a home," with his wife and daughter, until she could get a place." The girl wisely told her mistress, and her master heard of it. The latter, recognising the man, and conjecturing his objects from the description and address given, determined to see the matter out. He told the girl what he thought of the matter, and asked her aid in unmasking the ruffian. She, with a good deal of grit consented, and went to the house indicated, her master being within sight and hearing of the house, and having instructed the girl what to do in case any attempt was made to detain or molest her. However, the man was said not to be at home, and the woman, presumably his wise, who answered the door, and heard the girl's explanation-that she had called in accordance with the absent man's invita- tion-was abusive, and being also drunk, raised considerable racket in the street. The girl, there- fore, retired with her escort, and last Saturday week gladly turned her back upon Barry, and went home. Her late master last week received a letter from the girl, stating that she had got home all right. The girl's recollections of her stay in South Wales will be anything but pleasant. It appears that when she left home, having had a "tiff" with her parents, she answered an advertisement for a place at a public-house in the Roath district, Cardiff. Here she was very hardly worked. One Saturday she was hard at it from five a.m. till two a.m. the following day, and then her employer required her to scrub out the bar. She was, as she described it, done up," and because she could not do the work her master immediately turned her out into the street, bag and baggage. She was found in the street by a policeman, who took her to a home, where she remained till she obtained the Barry situation.
COAL SHIPMENTS AT PENARTH The coal shipments at Penarth Dock and Harbour last week amounted to 49,117 tons 11 cwt, the daily totals being as follow T. C. Monday 14,495 1 Tuesday 8,074 17 Wednesday '3,944 4 Thursday 8,914 3 Friday. 9,314 12 Saturday 4,347 14 Total 49,117 11
CLAIM FROM A PENARTH PRINTER. On Monday last, at Penarth Police Court-before Colonel Guthrie and Mr T. Morel-Roger Havard, apprentice to Charles Williams, printer, Windsor- road, Penarth, sued his employer for the sum of £ 5 9s 7d due as wages. Mr F. P. Jones-Lloyd, Barry Dock, appeared for plaintiff, and Mr A. W. Morris defended. The evidence went to show that wages had been paid plaintiff in sums of 3d, 6d, Is, and upwards on various occasions, but that plaintiff had absented himself without permission. The Bench made an order for the payment of A4 Os Id, but disallowed solicitor's costs.

LOCAL FOOTBALL. PENARTH v. BRISTOL. The return match between these teams was played at Bristol on Saturday last, before 6,000 spectators. Gloriously fine weather prevailed, and the turf was in fairly good condition. A great complaint with the Bristolians when playing in South Wales is that they have been unable to send over representative teams, but they certainly cannot say this about the teams that have played against Swansea, Cardiff, and Penarth, on the three past Saturdays. The Penarth men were — .Penar/A: Back, C. T. Kirbv three- quarter backs, H. G. Alexander, H. E. Morgan, R M. Garrett, and H. Kirby; half-backs, G. W. Shep- herd and T. H. Hutchings; forwards, G. Brown, K Ellis, F. A. Matthews, W. Gibbs, J. H. Cranston. G. Matthews, 1. Morris, and J. Lawdey. Bristol winning the toss, Penarth kicked off against a strong sun, and play immediately settled in the home half. From the first few scrums Shepherd got the ball away smartly, but the Bristolians tackled grandly, and kept their opponents at bay. Tight scrimmages ensued for sometime on the home 25 line, the Bristol forwards eventually relieving to half way with a series of short, sharp rushes. Shepherd getting possession in the centre, gave a grand pass out to Garrett, and the old International seemed like going away when he was held by a couple of opponents. Immediately afterwards, however, George Shepherd again gave his third line possession, and H. Kirby, who was the last to receive, travelled to the Bristol 25 line, where Mackay tackled him splendidly. Play of a very fast and exciting nature ensued in the centre, both ends being visited in turn. The ball being sent out to Alexander, the Penarth crack travelled up to the opposing full back, and then kicked over the latter's head, and in the race for possession Turner obtained it, but was immediately pounced upon by Alexander, and this left play within a few yards of the home line. Up to now the seasiders had had much the best of the game, play having been almost entirely in the Bristol 25. The visitors being allowed a free kick in a good position, Jeff Matthews took a shot at goal, but the ball fell short, and Wilcocks kicked grandly to touch at half-way. The homesters now played a little better, and rushed the leather into the visitors' half. From some scrim- mages on the Penarth 25 line, Pearse got the ball away repeatedly to his three-quarters, but the close tackling of the visiting backs nullified all efforts to score, and Gibbs ultimately relieved with a beautiful dribble to half-way, where Shepherd also came into prominence with several pretty runs. Some ex- change kicking between the backs left play just within the Penarth half. Herbie Morgan just after got away brilliantly, and travelling into the Bristol 25 seemed like putting Alexander in, but the pass went astray. From a scrimmage Morgan again got away, but ended up by taking a wild shot at goal, and only a minor resulted. On the resumption, play for a moment settled in the centre, but the visiting forwards soon took the leather into the home 25, where, from a scrum, Alexander was given possession, and after a short, dodgy run, the Penarth right wing scored in the corner. Jeff Mathews made a grand effort to convert, but the ball just dropped short. Half-time was soon afterwards called, with the score as follows :—Penarth, one try and one minor; Bristol, nil. Bristol re- started, and Charles Kirby was upset by Jarman before he could get in his reply. Wilcocks was the first to come into prominence with an exceedingly tricky run, and seemed like going in, but was over- powered by numbers. After this the Penarthians soon drove play into the home half, and after a dribble by Shepherd a minor resulted. The drop-eut saw play settle on the Bristol 25 line, but Pearce soon dribbled out to half-way. The Bristolians were continually making efforts' to get away by passing, but the visiting forwards were very fast on the ball, and nullified all attempts in this direction. From a scrum at half-way Shepherd sent out to Garrett. From him the ball travelled to Morgan, and then on to Alexander, who rounded Mackay in fine style and scored in a good position. The kick at goal, however, failed. The Penarthians continued to have the best of the play. On resuming, Kirby sent the ball well into the home half. The visitors were now bringing off repeated rounds of brilliant passing, and it was only luck that prevented them scoring oftener. A long kick by Charley Kirby was the means of obtaining Penarth's third minor. After the drop-out play remained in the homesters' 25, where a series of tight serums ensued, Jarman eventually breaking away from a line out and removing the venue to half-way. Shepherd, with a huge punt, soon sent play back into its old position in the Bristol 25. A strong rush by the home forwards slightly relieved, and a kick by Wilcocks further improved matters. From a scrum at half-way Garret got hold, and ran brilliantly into the home 25, where he was upset just in the nick of time. The Bristol forwards gradually worked out to half-way, only to be sent back by a bout of passing on the part of the Penarth backs. As time was drawing nigh it became evident that the previous fast play had told on the players, and the game got rather monotonous. The Penarth backs, however, continued to make attack after attack on the home line, but somehow they seemed unable to get across. From a scrum in their 25 the Bristol backs made one last effort, and had got well into the visiting half before they were stopped. Time was then called, with the score :—Penarth, two tries, four minors Bristol, nil. CADOXTON JUNIORS v. CARDIFF BOROUGHS. Played at Cadoxton on Saturday last in fine football weather. Owing to the late arrival of the Boroughs, the kick-off was delayed until five o'clock. A. F. Hill started for the homesters, and the visiting back failing to respond, play was taken near their line. The Juniors' forwards heeled the ball out splendidly, and gave Woodfield and Davies, the half-backs, plenty to do, and, lpassing out unselfishly, some pretty play was seen between F. Woodfield, T. Griffiths, and W. Gore, the last named being collared several times within a few yards of the line. The Juniors were at last re- warded by T. Griffiths getting over in the corner. The attempt to convert from a difficult angle failed. From a scrum near half-way Woodfield passed to T. Griffiths, who put in a good run to within a yard of the line, and being confronted by the back. passed to W. Lewis, who failed to teke, a certain try being thus lost. J. Meikle was now noticeable for several good runs to the line, but failed to score. Half-time score Cadoxton Juniors, one try; Cardiff Borough, nil. The Borough re-started the game the Juniors getting in a good return to the visitors' 25. The Borough by means of long kicking got to the Juniors' line, and for the first and only time in the game, the homesters were pressed. A mull by their wing, however, resulted in the Juniors rushing down the field and gaining a minor. From a scrum near half-way, Driscoll broke away and scored between the posts. W. Gore put a goaJ over. The re-start brought little relief to the visitors, and J. Davies getting possession from a scrum, got rid of the opposing halves by feint- ing, threw to T. Griffiths, who availed himself of the opening, and with a dashing run scored in a favourable position a second time. W. Gore failed with an easy kick. A. F. Hill was the next to cross, but for the third time in the match had his try disallowed. One of the visiting halves was now hurt, and had to leave the field. Final score:—Cadoxton Juniors, one goal, two tries, and one minor Borough, nil. Referee, Mr C. Frampton, C.J.F.C. OTHER MATCHES. LLANDAFF RESERVES v.
