CORRESPONDENCE. WE do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents.—Ed.1 WELSH DISESTABLISHMENT. To the Editor of the Llangollen Advertiser." Sir,-In your leading article in last week's paper, you rather complained that the utterances of the Liberal leader, Mr. Gladstone, on the above important subject, were not sufficiently distinct and explicit. I scarcely think you have much cause to complain. When is the" G. 0, M," clear and explicit on anything? No doubt you have often observed on a fine summer morning the river Dee enveloped in a robe of silvery mist. It looked beautiful, but it concealed from your view the form and hue of adjacent objects. The great orator greatly delights in such haze. He speaks long and brilliantly on a certain subject, his hearers are charmed, but all the time his thoughts are enveloped in a sort of golden mist. In his great speech at the Rink, Nottingham, Mr. Gladstone, referring to Disestablishment in Wales, acknowledged that in his opinion the subject was ripe for decision," but added, the time has not yet arrived." When will that time arrive ? His answer is," When the Irish question is settled." But his zealous disciple, Sir George Trevelyan, in his address at Carnarvon, in criticising some remarks of the Marquis of Hartington, said, "he did not agree with Lord Hartington that nothing could be carried into practical effect until the Irish question had been settled." No, Sir George cannot agree with Hartington, but cordially agrees with Gladstone, who says the same thing. How very consistent! Your humble servant, Penygraig. JOHN JONES. LLYTHUR YR HEN GRASWR. MISDAR GLYGWH,—Rhyfedd iawn uw pob peth ond i ni ddal sulw, wel tase.

FIRST ROUND OF TIES FOR THE WELSH CHALLENGE CUP. Mold beat Ruthin by one goal to none. Corwen and Portmadoc a tie-one goal each. Oswestry beat Shrewsbury by two goals to none. Ellesmere and Welshpool a tie, neither side scoring. Davenham beat Chester St. Oswald's by two goals to none. Wrexham Olympic beat Alyn White Stars by four goals to none. LLANGOLLEN V. WREXHAM EXCELSIOR. The tie between these clubs was played at Llangollen, as advertised, on Saturday, and proved a most pleasant game, the best of feelings existing on both sides. Llangollen, winning the toss, wisely chose to defend the top goal, and fought with pluck and energy, well sustaining throughout a supremacy over the Wrexham men. Before change of sides. Bob Roberts had won general commendation, and had scored two goals for Llangollen, to which two more goals were added in the course of the last half time, though the visitors then showed better form. The visitors, however, succeeded in saving a duck," by taking a goal immediately before the call of time but, probably, would not have bad that had darkness not set in. In fact, their play at goal was anything but good, which gave a licence to the keeper, who on more than one occasion caused some laughter by his coolness in leaving his charge several yards behind in order to get a kick at the ball. So the game ended in favour of Llangollen by four goals to one. There was an improvement perceptible in the play of those Llangollen men who had taken part in the previous matches, and the introduction of Bob Roberts and Matthias into the team infused the game with new life, the playing of the former especially surpassing every anticipation. The teams were :—Llangollen Goal, M. Griffiths; backs, Joseph Jones and B. Simon half-backs, C. Davies, E. Jones, and E. Evans right wing, Matthias and J. Davies left wing, Bob Roberts and E. T. Davies centre, James Richards. Umpire, Mr. J. P. Davies. Wrexham Goal, Jones backs, Pryce and Evans; half-backs, Davies, Carty, and Clutton right wing, Pritchard and Godfrey left wing, Malone and Ancell; centre, W. Hughes. Umpire, Mr. E. Jones. Referee, Mr. T. E. Thomas, of Chirk.
