THE OFFICE POET. Llanelly has got a crisis of a peculiarly viru. lent character. The players have got out of hand a bit, and the committee have the triple job before them of purging the combination of a rebellious spirit, making an honourable peace with the junior clubs, and getting out of debt. Sufficient far the season is the evil thereof. Players are hard to manage, because in Llanelly the number is limited, and a man with a swell-head can easily work a corner. Daniels, who is a vice-captain of a peculiar kind, assists the committee by leading the mutiny-conduct for which he should be reduced to the ranks, and, if necessary, ejected. Better no football at all than football "bossed" by a Daniels. But that is one sore which can be healed by firm treatment. There is another that wants Well Collared." touching up. Good fellowship is not cultivated tn the team, and the captain sets a bad example. fancy one little coterie taking- their rub- flown at a swell hotel, and leaving the train ing- Joom to the others! This won't do at all. 'I play lor sport, and I don't get it with the first," was the reply of a youngster, whose team is like a hand of brothers—and as mischievous as mon- keys. Percy Lloyd strikes me as player who has just missed being a roal < good 'un. Llanelly people have spoiled him. He learnt feii he knows a bit too soon. The result is that lie take? liberties with the play which would not be tolerated in some towns where the com- Inii:teo have a real hold on the players. He kiu the ball on the drop, which is exactly Every never fails to do. Yet, in the H orris ton match, Percy twice at least bobbed in between Every and the ball and missed it every Sime. A sharp captain would have stopped this caper, but Lloyd is the captain—and no one ehides him for this and for hugging the ball until it is too la.te for anyone else to do anything- with it. When he does get away the pace is terrific, but half his success is due to a happy forgetfulness that there are fourteen othe players wanting a chance. T want to see Percy Lloyd taking up the reins in earnest, promoting sociability in the team, chec; king' faults, and ceasing to be a bad example. Above all things, it is necessary for hiiu to fill his ears with wadding, so as not to do the wrong thing merely because the crowd shout Khen sc gets on the run. Charlie Arthur ought to have gome i lea of low this afternoon's'garee will go'. This morn- ing: 1 tried, to get his views. He was a bit his statement, but was willing to admit, that' there were one or two good men playing in the district team, and that the match is givi3i £ an idea of local junior talent, ought to it; vat/table. Quite my opinion. Cardiff, ho says, ought to cross the district !ine about half a dozen times. They may, 0. course, but, believe me, I don't think they will. There will probably be some do-or-die features in to-day's game. There are one or two men in the team against Cardiff to-day that will require a lot of looking after. Harris is opposite Biggs, and the latter is a big handful for anyone to attend to. The St. David's man, however, is no slouch on the wing. Ho can start lively whenever he gets A Tight Scrimmage. I hold of the leather, and his times in recent sprints suggest that he wants some catching when he fairly gets away. Mills, on the other wing, is a bit lively, too. He is an old "saint," although he assists Cathays now. Once, when he played against the Cardiff second team, an official of the blue and blacks expressed no small surprise at the lively manner in which Charley threaded his way through his opponents. The secretary of the Cardiff Club is of the opinion that Cardiff have a better team this year than ever they have had since the days of the redoubtable Hancock. The forwards, he imagines, are all right, not over heavy, but clever and fast-an eight that want a lot of beating. The halves and three-quarters are Sound, but not enough has been seen of Smith- son to say how he will turn out in the posi- tion of custodian. Although Williams, who played in the recent trial matches for Cardiff, has not yet found his way into the first string, the committee have a good opinion of him. He will be given a bit of training in the Seconds before being put in the first fifteen. Cravos and Elsey are both unable to turn out this afternoon Dobson will therefore be seen in the front division of the blue and blacks. I bear that a new man is likely to be intro- duced into the Swansea First Fifteen against I He Stopped Another Man's Foot. Penarth this afternoon as one result of the acci- dents at the last match. It is certain that if Coke finds the weather too bad for him to play in his not over-strong condition the new man— Ball—will be trotted out. Ball is not unknown in Monmouthshire as a capable full back, but he has recently come to Swansea to reside, and the Swansea committee, noting his play with the second fifteen last week, spotted some merit, which they intend to utilise. I hope Ball will turn out a. useful addition to the team. What thundering hypocrites we are," bawled an old-fashioned joker, who used to take somewhere in the seventies. What's the trouble," I mildly murmured. Simply this every bally club official in Wales is down on payment for broken time—veiled professionalism, thin end of wedge, and all that sort of guff." "Well, shouldn't they?" He gasped, Shouldn't they, indeed Why, there are few first-class clubs that haven't paid or don't pay for broken time. They don't call it by that name, but a man with half an eye could find out clubs-and big ones, too-who do it all the time." What's the matter with Cooper? He has turned over Newport, and as soon as he gets his transfer will figure in the Bradford ranks. He has been in the North all the week, but returned to Abergavenny on Friday. He will only stay there long enough, however, to complete the necessary formalities of the transfer. The Yorkshire committee have not made any bones over the affair. Already they have granted Cooper a conditional transfer, and this looks as though they meant to have him whether the Newport club like it or not. Arthur Gould says that, so far as he knows, Cooper will assist the Usksiders this year, but when a friend asked Gould if Cooper bad definitely promised his services this year the international captain replied, Oh, we don't ask fellows to make promises like that!" The captain of the Abergavenny Football Club stated the other day that Cooper would assist his team in their match' against Dowlais on Bailey Park to-day. In the absence of Cooper from the Newport quartette the third line will be Dauncey and Young on the wing, with Charley Thomas and Arthur Gould in the centre. Edmunds, of Usk, is a promising three-quarter. He will be tried in the Newport second string for a time. He wili probably be given a trial in the first later on. The match at Newport to-day may end any. how. Gould thinks Newport ought to win, but as they have never taken on Birkenhe ad before he Preparing for a. Kick at Goal. could not say a lot about the match. Well, one I never knows. The LI&iieHy committee ought to exercise fcjuore tact iu their dealings with the junipr teams. These young colts are skittish, but, under skilful treatment, could be made docile. Just now, unfortunately, the juniors have a long string of injustices suffered. We beat your A team twice last year," say the Seaside Stars, andwhen you took away Ben Da^vies, Every, and Badger we decided to throw in our lot with the 'A.' But what happened! Not one of us was selected. Between two stools we came to the ground." This must not happen again. Even- handed justice pays best in the long run. As for the juniors themselves, they deserve a dressing for standing off and letting the old club struggle along without them. Where is the old spirit of Llanelly, boys? They are merely biting off their own noses to spite the face. If football drops back at Llanelly it will be because they are not game enough and patriotic enough to sink little differences, and lend a hand to pull the old ship out of the breakers. "Play for the first! why we are better off," said one of these a few days ago. "We have £6 in hand; the first is X150 in debt." This is a spirit to keep under. These lads ought to think of something besides them- selves. It was not as they talk that those talked who, after one stubborn fight after another, worked the tin-plate town to the top of the tree. Oh, no; there was but one club then all others were but nurseries. I have done with preaching for the day. Llanelly will triumph over its difficulties, and emerge from these troubles stronger than ever —if the sons of Llanelly are but true to her. It is for the committee to work out the change,and every time they check a Daniels, chide a Lloyd when he deserves it, and win over a good colt from the crowd of juniors I'll shout More power to their elbows." The Northerners have fairly cottoned to the four three-quarter game. On Saturday last I noticed some dozens of clubs, including Swinton, Salford, Oldham, Broughton Rangers, Leeds, Tydesley, Warrington, Wigan, Huddersfield, and Halifax, adopting the quartette system of three-quarters. We shall have to invent something new for the poachers to copy. The Leeds team, by the way, more out of compliment to the visit of F. R. Alderson and the Hartlepool Rovers than anything else played four three-quarters. Whether the Rovers had gone wrong or Leeds had taken a particular fancy to the change cannot be ex- plained, but the visitors got a fearful licking to the tune of six goals to none. Cardiff must look out on November 22. Quite a miniature international will take place at Holloway, London, to-day where the London Caledonians meet their friends who represent "gallant little Wales in the Metro- polis. Rumsey Williams will have a strong lot of Taffies in the field, and hopes that they will make a good show for the honour of the Father land. Referees have been known to give correct de- cisions. In civilised times the referee formed a succulent after-meal for the two teams. Nowa- days the practice seems to have become almost obsolete, and the poor official receives the un- kinder treatment of splenetic and venomous tirades of abuse. A proper referee should be short-sighted and have the gout. These quali- fications effectually obviate mistakes, for he cannot be far out if he penalise the appealing side. The linesman has nothing much to do but wave a flag and argue with the crowd, but it is generally admitted he does it well. WELSH ATHLETE.
To-day's Matches. CARDIFF V. DISTRICT UNION. Played on the Park before 5,000 spectators. Both teams were slightly altered in their composition, Dobson going into the Cardiff pack instead of Cravos. 'Wheeler and Harris were absent from the. District team, their places being filled by Carthy, of Grange, and E. P. Biggs, of Cardiff. The teams lined up as follow:—Cardiff: Back, Smithson; three-quarter backs, T. W. Pearson, J. Elliott, D. Fitzgerald, and N. Biggs; half backs, R. B. Sweet-Escott and S. Biggs; forwards, A. Lewis, W. Cope, W. Davies; R. Davies, R. Guinea, Dobson, Smith, and Ramsay, District Union: Back, W. Francis (Grangetown); three-quarter backs, C. Mills (Cathays), E. P. Biggs (Cardiff), E. Spillane (Star), and J. Evans (Grangetown) half backs, P. Ryan and Gus Carthy (Grangetown) forwards, T. M'Carthy and W. Jaknes (G-rangetown), C. R. Harding (Canton), J. SSpavin (Grangetown), J. Casey (Star), T. Gunstone (Northern), G. Woodman (Grangetown), and E. Emery (Cathays). Referee, Mr. Douglas. The District won the toss, and Lewis started for Cardiff. Jack Evans returned to touch in the Cardiff 25, and after a line out the black and reds were nearly over, Carthy getting on to the line. Sweet-Escott and N. Biggs relieved slightly, but good kicking kept play on the home line, and, after the District had missed a chance of scoring, the home halves started some passing that went right along the line, and ended in Elliott giving Pearson a pass that put him over, although he was collared on the line. Biggs shot at goal, but hit the post. goal, but hit the post. Re-starting the Cardiff half was first visited, but good defence by the backs kept them out, and the blue and blacks quartette getting an opening from S. Biggs some fine passing took the Cardiffians up to the District line. A couple of hot attempts were kept out, but after some long kicking between each side a long punt from Elliott dropped on the touch line by the District 25 flag. The de- fending side evidently thought it had been in touch, for no attempt was made to stop Lewis when the latter picked up the ball and walked in unopposed. N. Biggs easily kicked the goal. After this play stuck at half way. Carthy and Ryan each got away from the scrum, but closs tackling by S. Biggs spoilt each attempt at passing before it had been fairly started. Moving slnwly up to the District 25 line Pearson and Sweet-Escott initiated an attack that was disposed of by Evans and Francis. E. P. Biggs, however, let the blue and black in by failing to mabe a catch, and after a scrum had been fought out close on the line R. B. Sweet-Escott sent out a pass that ended by Fitzgerald getting in close by the posts. Biggs con- verted. A bout of very even play in mid-field saw eaeh side attack in turn, but tha District men lacked method in their passing. At half-way a scrimmage was ended by Sweet-Escott slipping Ryan and starting some passing which, after Fitzgerald and Biggs had each handled, was finished up- by Elliott slipping in with the fourth try, which Biggs converted. E. P. Biggs put in some good kicking on the re-start, which put play well in the Cardiff 25, Pearson relieved to the District half, where the black and reds were awarded a free. This enabled the District to get well into the Cardiff half. Spavin, by smart passing, looked like pulling his side in, but just as he was passing Elliott brought liim low, and the chance was spoilt. Long kicking between Norman Biggs and Francis ended with honours even, and then the Dis- trict halves started some smart passing along the third line, which ended in Spillane stumbling. At half-time play wa,s in mid-field, the score standing Cardiff 3 goals, 1 try, 1 minor District Union Nil. Evans re-started for the District, and for a time play stucd at midway. Pearson put play into the District touch with a huge punt, and again scrim- maging took place. Ryan got away from a scrimmage, and a fine bout of passing between the backs took Evans right up to Smithson. Here he passed over to Mills, but the latter, partly stumbling, was brought down, and a grand chance was lost. Forward play brought the game back into the District quarters, where a poor return by Francis let the blue and blacks into close proximity to the line. A couple of hard scrums were fought out, then N. Biggs sent a pass out to Escott, from him it v. ent yn to itorman Biggs, and then to Fitzgerald. The Jatter doubled his men grandly, and ran iu between the posts, Biggs convert- ing for the fourth time. Forward there was little to choose in the teams, but the home lot were, of course, immensely superior in the backs, the District for- wards passing being bad. Smithson moved play into the District half with a fine return punt, and after some scrambling play on the District line, during which Fitzgerald got over, but was called back. Biggs made a mark, and punted across to Pearson, E. P. Biggs saved. Escott was next dangerous, but was brought down just on the line. A hard scrimmage was ended in favour of the district eight, but just as they seemed like reliving Biggs made his mark on the 25 line in front of goal. The shot went wide, however. G. Carthy replied badly to a punt of Norman Biggs, and let the Cardiffians into the District 25. The first scrum formed, however, saw Carthy get the ball awity,and E, P Biggs went up the left wing to half-way. Ryan and Jack Evans were the next pair in motion, and the latter getting to half way foa„.J. •—b by the Cardiff 26. Jack Evans and Qirthy each had narrow squeaks from getting in. A free to the District was taken by Francis, but the Cardiffians had the best of it, and a reply. by Elliott being nulled play went into the District half only to be rushed back to the Cardiff 25 by the District forwards. From here Sweet-Escott again set his backs in motion. Biggs was stopped by Mills, but Fitzgerald went flying- down the wing, and took a low, awkward pass from his captain dropping over, ran clean out at the corner. The try was not converted. To its old place at half-way the play went immediately on re-starting. Each side of the half-way line was in turn visited, but Smithson seemed always in ths way of the ball, and no matter who of the D}Jposing side kicked it the leather seemed to always drop in his hands. A free to the District just outside the Cardiff 25 line was sent to touch by Jack Evans close on the Cardiff goaliine. Pearson.r^Sie^aad^afiej-theAiUur^hid. sent to touch by Jack Evans close on the Cardiff goaliine.

The remainder of the play was of a. very even character. Forward the District held their own in the scrums, and their halves had little, if any, the worst of the argument. At the call of time play was in mid-field, the score stonding :— Cardiff 4 goals, 2 tries, 1 minor District Nil. NEWPORT V. BIRKENHEAD WANDERERS. Played at Newport before nearly 3,000 spectators I in showery weather. The ground was in good condi- tion considering the recent heavy rains. The teams were as follows:—Birkenhead Wanderers: -Back, Slade three-quarter backs, Hughes, J. Watson, C.' Xelly, and W. Canning half-backs, A. Herbert and A. Hurst; forwards, E. Elliot, C. Mor- gan, B.Murphy, J. DI ay, T. Rowlands, Franklen, — Atkinson, — Bibby, and S. Ingham. Newport Back, T. England three-quarter backs, A. J. Gould, F. H. Dauncey, C. J. Thomas, and W. G. James half-backs, F. C. Parfitt and M. Hannen forwards, A. W. Boucher, H. T. Day, W. H. Watts, J. Bowley, W. Groves, H. Packer, T. Pook, and T. Newcombe, Mr. H. M. Ingledew, of Cardiff, was the referee. Soon after the kick off, at 3.40, the visitors went in for a sharp forward bout, and pressed Newport well into their own 25, their loose scrums and fast tackling being clever. The Newport passing partially recovered itself, but still the fast, determined tackling of the visitors was of great service to them, and England had to concede a minor after a long drop over the line by one of the visitors' backs. A similar point fell to Newport soon after from a shot at goal by Arthur Gould. The game so far had been a very fierce oAe between the forwards, with fast rushes on both sides. After a very vigorous game in mid-field Gould ran in with a fast try, but Slade, the full back, in tackling him, sustained a slight hurt, which caused him temporarily to retire. England easily converted the place kick. Newport got into their proper stride after drawing first blood. Good passing. amongst the halves and three-quarters gave James, the new wing, man, his chance soon after, the re-start, and he notched a plucky try, which was not goaled. The home attack was still continued. The ball, however, being wet, bobbed ahrat in the most: uncertain fashion at times, domes at length tgok a good pass on the wing, and got over with a corner try, which England splendidly convertecd. Half-time waa then called the-score being:- HALF-TIME SCORE. Newport 2 goals, 1 try, 2 minors Birkenhead 2 minors The Cheshire men re-started after the interval and Newport quickly began attacking, but what with being a little slow with their opportunities and meeting a vigorous defence they were kept at bay, the play being of of a very slap-dash order, and a goodish bit below Newport form until at length Mat Hannen made a dash from the heels of the scrum and passed to Gould, who literally jumped in with a try at the post, which England had no difficulty in converting. A few minutes' fast, exciting play in the visitors' quarters ended in Dauneey running in with a try, but the kick was too far off to convert. Still: Newport were making better use of their opportunities than before. Charley Thomas gave a pass back to Gould, who dropped a very cool goal, making the fourth for the homesters. But for occasional spurts the visitors now appeared to be beaten to the world. The home forwards rushed up and a soft try fell to Watts. It was not converted. Play ranged up and down the field, until at lsngth Poole, in a hot forward rush, scored again for the Usksiders. No goal resulted. Parfitt was the next to score from a loose rush, England easily converting. The match then ended. Score :— Newport 5 goals (1 drpopped), 4 tries, and 4 minors Birkenhead 1 minor NEATH V. PONTARDAWE.

FOOTBALLERS GO NORTH. Newport Players Do Not Object to Cooper Going to Bradford. Several members of the Newport Football Club have been interviewed by our representa- tive in reference to the transfer to Bradford of Cooper, a member of the Newport team. What is most singular is that there does not appear to be any disposition to interfere in the matter. Let him go," said Arthur Gould, we do not see why we should interfere with a man getting his living wherever he likes." Graham, last year's captain, spoke to similar purport, and this seems to be the general opinion.
AMERICAN TRAIN ROBBERY. Sensational Experience of a Bristolian. Mr. Councillor Henry Wooding, of North- ampton, has written home an account of an extraordinary experience which has befallen himself and other English visitors to Chicago. They left that city by express train at 11.45 on Monday night, and all went well until 12.50, when the passengers were awakened by the firing of pistols and what they "thought to be small cannon. One of the guards, entering the car, said to Mr. Ashman, of Bristol, "Have you a revolver, sir?" Mr. Ashman replied that he had not, and asked what was the matter. The guard explained that the train was being attacked by a band of 20 robbers, and advised them to get dressed, but to be quite still. They did so, and remained in the greatest suspense for some time, when the train began to move slowly on and stopped at the next station. They then learned that as the train had ap- proached Kessler, Indiana, the engine-driver discovered that a switch had been placed open. He immediately applied the brakes to save the train from being wrecked. Scarcely had the train come to a standstill when a band of twenty masked men suddenly appeared and made a rush for the express car. The engine-driver seized a coal pick and offered a desperate resistance, but he was felled to the ground and then shot, being seriously wounded. In the meantime the rest of the gang succeeded in blowing open the door of the express car with dynamite. The messen- ger who was in charge of the car, which con- tained the safe of the United States Express Company, fired several shots, but he was quickly knocked down, disarmed, and rendered insensi- ble. The robbers then blew open the safe, and seized its contents. After having secured this booty, they fired a few parting shots as a warning that pursuit meant death, and disappeared into some neighbouring woods.
Welsh People Injured at Chicago Among those who were seriously injured in the railway accident at Chicago a couple of days ago were a Welshman and his wife and daughter, namely, Mr. William Evans, superintendent at the Powellton Coal works in Virginia, whose spine was injured Mrs. Evans, who sustained bad contusions on body and limbs and Miss Sallie Evans, who was internally injured, and whose face and left side were badly bruised.
Military Experiment in Human Endurance. A Dalziel's telegram from Paris on Friday says :-It has been decided to establish a mili- tary station in the Alps during the coming winter months. The locality chosen is on Mont Cenis, an altitude of 3,000 metres. A detach- ment of 22 men, under a lieutenant, is already there. The object of the war authorities is to determine the power of endurance of the soldiers in these altitudes.
Principal Viriamu Jones gave an interesting lecture on Friday evening at the Splott-road Board School, Cardiff, the subject being Electricity and Magnetism." Councillor Riches occupied the chair. A special meeting of the Tenby Town Council was held on Friday. It was ordered that a cheque for £ 200—the corporation contribution to the Intermediate School for Tenby be signed. The question of filter beds in oonnection with the water supply, was ordered to stand over till a reply had been received from the charity u stees, with respect to the Cai-swell Springs.

SERVANT GIRL MURDERED. Her Sweetheart is Charged with the Crime at Bath. At Weston, near Bath, on Friday Arthur Stevenson Coombs, twenty, apprentice at Messrs Fuller's coach building factory, Bath, and living at 25, Kingsmead-terrace, was charged with the murder of Elsie Adeline Luke, alias Wilkie, at Hampton Down, during August, 1891. The accused, who is a thin, pale yeung fellow, looking older than the age stated, was in an agitated condition. He was defended,by Mr. E. B. Titley, of Bath, who asked permission to reserve cross-examination. Superintendent Rutherford said that when. he apprehended Coombs at his work on Thursday evening accused said, I did not do it; I kept company with her. After that I am of no use to you." Mr ..D.S.Smith said he had known Coombs from childhood. On Thursday evening he said to him, Arthur, I have sad news for you," and pri- soner replied, Not for me, Mr. Smith." Wit- ness then told him Superintendent Rutherford had a warrant for his arrest, and accused asked how they could be sure the remains were those of Luke. Witness told him of the identification by Mrs. Kerry, who employed Luke as cook, from March to July, 1891. Mrs. Kerry identified the .linen produced as her property, .and stated she had missed similar things after Luke left. WitBess had burned several things, including letters found in the box left behind by the deceased. John Edwards,'a fishmonger's assistant, said he had seen the prisoner and Luke together. Some time ago he had a conversation with Coombs, who said she ought to be dead or killed. Witness was not certain to whom accused re- ferred, but he supposed the girl Luke was ineant^ Edwards was here requested, to confine himseli to plain, straightforward answers. Witness, in answer to further questions, said he might have opened conversation with Coombs by saying, I don't see you now at the railway mission with so and so," meaning Wilkie, but he could not pledge himself to that. Kate Bullock, a fellow servant of the deceased, said Luke was frequently visited by a young man whom she used to take down to the cellar. He was fair, and she believed rather curly. Mrs. Dillon, with whom deceased stayed from the Saturday before Bank Holiday till the fol- lowing Monday, identified as Wilkie's property the hat picked up on the Downs. She said the deceased was a highly respectable girl. The hearing was adjourned till Tuesday. The police have found that Wilkie's step- father is at the Emigrants' Home, Blackwall, London. J-

A Starling Assertion Promptly Denied. The Central News correspondent at Paris tele- graphs on Friday :—The journal Libre Parole has produced a story which for the moment caused some sensation, it being' averred that a plot which had been fomented in Italy had been discovered for the assassination of President Ca,rnot. Unfortunately for the success of the canard, the Minister of the Interior issued a prompt and emphatic denial of the whole story.
A find of interest to antiquaries was made on Thursday at Tamworth during some excava- tions in the roadway near the historic castle. At a depth of about 8ft. was discovered the base of what was apparently at one time either a large urn or a font. The substance appears to be half-baked clay, of a fluted design, sparingly orhamented With oak leaves., and probably of Saxon or Roman workmanship. The piece is about 1ft. long, Sin. or lOin. wide, and 2iu. in

In San Francisco, in the year 1889, a young man of excellent name and position, whose mind had been affected ,IY a dangerous illness, came to hear the famous songstress. He concealed a small revolver about his person, and was heard to say. half jestingly, I feel that I should like to shoot someone to-night." After taking his seat. he observed that a very beautiful and interesting-looking young lady was in a box close by. She was a bride, and had been married that very morning, and had come '0 hear the diva in her great part of Violetta in La Traviata." The bride looked so radiant in her pure white gown that the madman' could not keep his eyea from her face, and almost unconsciously his hand sought the revolver which he had secreted in the breast pocket of his coat. Just at that terrible moment Patti appeared on the &tage.<JPhd matchless voice instantly arrested the attention of the would be murderer, and he forgot his horrible pur- pose. After the performance he told the story to his doctor, by whom it was repeated to Madame Patti.
