Sunday Golf at Penarth. II! ¡REACHERS PROTEST FROM THE PULPIT. lay. 1. Staiberg Teils a Pressman He Will Not Retract a Single One of His Words. On Monday a representative of the Evening &pre#8 waited upon the Rev. Isaac O. St&lberg-» Penarth, in reference to his sermon at the Unwell-road Baptist Chapel the previous 6vening_ in which he severely commented on the ^stion of certain Penarth residents who indulged ill golf on the Sunday. Asked what prompted lQ1 to take the course he did, the rev. gentle- man replied, Because the occasion demands 1 said distinctly last night I do not charge Canon Thompson or anybody else with this, bllt I think the teaching of the doctrines of the Afternoon Society tends to irrelijien." Then you are a believer in Sunday obser-1 rMiee in all respects t' Yes, certainly." How long has Sunday golf playing been go-iiig a,t Penarth r'' I should think about six weeks. It was £ °;ag on for some weeks before I heard any- thiug about it." Do you disapprove of the game ?" No. I don't disapprove of golf generally.1, itJe gamb is right enough, but it Is the time and pI,ce and influence. That is the point of view f » which I look at the matter. I would not **e» object to play golf myself, but certainly on Sunday." Do yon attribute Sunday golf playing' to the action of the Cardiff Sunday Society ?" .1 All I say on that point is, the tendency of teaching is in this direction, and any dove- I look upon as the em-come of it." •i xhen vou don't believe in picture galleries ep-g open on a Sunday?" No. I look upon a movement of that sort ,as decidedly anti-Christian, and, getting a little ^ver, anti-religious. It is a substitute for that £ Uch should tend to the elevating and uplifting j ftien. I am very fond of pictures. I suppose draw upon them for illustrations in preaching 'ore largely than anything- else, and I never bliss seeing- a good collection if I can help it." Then what harm is there in it ?" Simpiy because it is keeping people from I?068 wors^ip and from services they might Other,vi-,e attend. The people who visit these future galleries are, as a rule, those who could p'(r them any other day in the week. I don't ^n'Ek that working people care for them. Where ¡On find a couple of intelligent working' men take an interest in a picture gallery you find fifty who don't." Who are the people you complain of ?" Well-known residents, of Penarth—who ,l.?htto know beHer. I suppose they are the gen- 1,ernen, of Penarth—at all events they are people position. Only yesterday week these golfers coming by with all their kit as the chil- ?en were coming- out of Sunday School. Such tend to counteract any influence work we have been doing with the children, hey want to know how soon they will be old -Hough to give up Sunday School and go and Play golf. I did not say a word last night that [1 Wemt to retract, but the result I know will be ''at I shall be looked upon as a crabbed crea- censurer, puritanical, and all the rest of j1- They will pile up epithets of that sort, vLlt it is all nonsense, and they know it is |on»ense. I object to the game on Sun- **ay because it is Sunday, and the influence is distinctly. Then you don't charge Canon Thompson ^lth^ being the cause of all this ?" I look upon Canon Thompson as the leader, ,.s he has given his countenance to the Sunday -ociety. and he must be prepared to bear the ll'Unt. He is a good man, but I think he is very mistaken on that point. There is no j^iimus about it, because I don't know him even j >" sight, and I don't suppose he knows me.

LEITH VACANCY. Both Sides Claim Victory on Yesterday's Polling. Probably never in the history of the Leith I Burghs has there been so much excite- ment at a Parliamentary contest as in the present struggle, the polling in which took place on Monday, and the result of which will be declared to-day (Tuesday). The candiclltes are Mr. Ronald C. Fergusson (G.), who seeks re- election on his appointment, as a Junior Lord, of the Treasury, and Mr. W. A. Bell (C.), who contested the seat at the la,st election. There were seven polling stations, of which five are at Leith, one at Portobello, where the parties are supposed to be nearly equal, and one at Musselburgh, where Ilr. Bell, the Unionist candidate, is believed to have the majority. Mr. Munro Ferguson, the Ministerial candidate, with Lady Helen Ferguson (his wife), visited the polling booths during- the day. There was some excitement in Leith at the hour of the close of the poll. From returns made it seems that about 3,250 votes have been polled. Both parties claim victories, and the Unionists are certain that Mr. Ferguson's majority is g-reatly reduced. Mr. Bell visited his committee rooms and said be had secured a majority of votes in Musselburgh. In Porto- bello the vote was double that of last time. It they had not won in Leith an object lesson had been taught their opponents, and it would be followed and emphasised in Berwickshire and the Border Burghs. —

WFLLENHALL INCUMBENCY. Church Trustees Decide Who Has the Right to Vote. Although the date for the election of the vicar of St. Giles's, Willenliall, has not been abso- lutely fixed, it is hoped (says the Pout) that the contest will take place about the 24th of April. On Saturday morning the trustees of the church and the chcrchwc.rdens held another meeting to receive the opinion of Mr- Lawrence, Q.C., with regard to the mode in which the election should be conducted. The last election took place so far back as 60 years ago, when there was only one church in the township, but more than three other churches have been built, and some doubts existed as to whether the freeholders outside the present ecclesiastical district of St. Giles's could vote as on previons occasions. The proceedings on Saturday were private, but we have been supplied with the following' summary of Mr. Lawrence's opinion -"(1) The voters will be resident householders in possession of freehold or copyhold property witbiu the township of Willenball, including Bentley, whether male or female.

BUDGET RUMOURS. Forecasting Chancellor Harcourts Statement. The "Spectator" says:—Sir William Har- court will certainly have a grand opportunity on his Budget night. He. believes himself a financier, and there is everywhere an uneasy or hopeful sense abroad that he is going to make this year memorable in finance, and place himself on a level with Sir Robert Peel or Mr. Gladstone as a financial benefactor. He is to release the poor from their burdens with- out emiityjng the Treasury, and to plunder the well-to-do without rousing them to posi- tive resistance. He is to propose, in fact, a grand democratic Budget, which will delight I E' the masses and produce an immediate forget- fnlues's of lÆs popular proposals, drown Home Rule in cheers for Harcourt, and extinguish all objections to disestablishment in cries of grati- fication at the future cheapness of humble life. How he is to do all these grand things is, of course, a secret between- him, the chiefs of the Treasury, and the head people in Somerset House but the popular notion of his method takes a very definite—though, of course, pos- sibly vei,y inaccurate-form. The total deficit- to !>,> mei will be no less than £ 10,000,000, and it will be met by imposing an Income-tax of 9d. in the £ which everybody will have to pay on his income before it reaches him, and by a graduated Income-tax of 3d. or 4d. more, to be paid only by those who have £2,000 or more a year, on an ascending scale in propor- tion to their wealth. The barrister who earns j65,000 a year will probably pay 9>kL in the L, while the Duke of Devonshire or Lord Roths- child will be mulcted in IM.. the collector adding the extra charge to his bill, he knowing from his returns what the total income is. The same principle will be applied to the Death Duties with this addition, that the exemption hitherto allowed to relatives will be finally swept away. That is indeed, inevitable on democratic principles, for the very idea of graduated duties is either to punish the rich for being rich, that is, to fine thrift as an un- demooratic quality, or to deplete their pre- sumed surplus in relief of those who enjoy too little physical comfort. Neither of those objects is accomplished if sons remain exempt from succession duties, for every heavy exemp- tion in their favour act" as an entail on them, and preserves the family surplus for the family. and not either for the State or for the poor: The remainder of the deficit., if there i, any, will made up by arresting State-saving ill some form or other, diminishing the purchases of Consols Oi" selling the immense inheritance left by Lord Bœe<1HJield to the nation in the form of the Suez Canal shares—a reasonable resource, because the additional outlay on the Navy is not expected to go- on for ever. For anything we know, t-ha-t forecast may prove to be all IlŒ¡;m1¡;,e, We do not profess to know a single Treasury secret, not even the reason why the officials doubted the full collec- tion of the immense stuns which have poured in within the last 30 days, but we do know that this is, in the rough, the popular fore- cast aud we should like to know whether, if it is in any wa.v accurate, the Chancellor of the Exchequer has rightly gauged the feeding of the masses. As to that of the well-to-do classes, there can be, we imagine, little doubt. Every man of them, Gladstonia.n as well as Tory, who reads a Budget- of that kind will be thenceforward a lukewarm friend or a deadly enemy of the Rosebery Government. They would stand being heavily "rooked" to secure a definite upheaval to the lower class, which would comfort- their consciences a.s well tw allay their fears for the future; but to be "plundered" in order that old women may have more tea than is good for them will strike them as the extremity of unfairness. For, be it remembered, it is not only the idle rich," whom Radicals hate as if they were lilies of the field, on whom the additional burden will fall, but the working rich, who slave like journeyViien the .successful lrarristers and physicians, the directors of great "works," the managers of great shops, the owners of fleets which pay. the bankers who find the money which is the life-blood of enterprise.

SHIPPING DISASTERS. Trawlers and Men Lost in a Gafe in the North Sea. There is no longer any doubt that two trawlers belonging to Messrs. Hewitt and Co,, of Barking and Yarmouth, foundered in the recent gale. They were the Wildfire and Missis- sippi, and each carried a crew of six hands, all belonging to Gorleston. Most of the men leave wives and large families, and a relief fund is to be started for the widows and orphans THE VANDUABA. TI)WED TO BARRY DOCK. The skip Vanduara, which drove ashore off Barry Island during a gale two or three weeks ago, was successfully towed round from Whit- more Bay to the graving docks at Barry on Monday morning', in the presence of a large crowd of spectators. The V anduara, which is greatly damaged, will now undergo extensive repairs. MINOR CASUALTIES. The British barquentine Icarus, from Rosario for Philadelphia, put into St. Thomas leaky. The steam trawler Shark, from the fishing grounds, stranded near Boston, Lincolnshire. She was floated by two tugs and docked. The damage, if any, is unknown. The steam trawler Leo, of Grimsby, fouled a barque which wa,s anchored in Grimsby Roads during the fog. The barque sank. J

THE FATE OF WILSON. Major Forbes Interviewed on the Campaign. Major Forbes, who led one of the Chartered Company's columns in the attack upon the Matabele, arrived at Plymouth on Monday from South Africa on board the Grantully Castle. The major declined to discuss the Matabole campaign with his interviewers, preferring first to cousult the wishes of the Chartered Company in London. It is understood from other quarters, however, that the major resents the criticisms which have been made upon his conduct in the attempt to secure Lobengula, in which effort Wilson and his men lost their lives. In other respects Major Forbes merely corroborates what has already been published. Interview with the Major. A Reuter's Cape Town telegram of March 11 says :—Before sailing to-day for England Major Forbes, in a brief interview with Renter's agent, spoke of the disaster to Wilson s party. Wilson's orders, lie said, were simply to go for- ward reconnoitring, and to return before dark. On learning from him that he had found out where Lobengula was, and that he intended to wait for the column, Major Forbes sent Cap- tain Borrow with twenty men to reinforce Wilson, being quite satisfied that with 35 men Wilson was safe, and he left it entirely to his dis- cretion to make an effort to secure the king if he thought it feasible with the extra men. Borrow and the others joined Wilson before daybreak, not having seen any of the enemy on their way. After a general consultation. Wilson decided to attack the king- without waiting' for the column to come up. -Yiison's party were in no danger up to this point, and could either
Yesterday's Football. VISIT OF THE HEATHENS TO CARDIFF. A Stubbornly Contested but Fast Game Ends in a Win for the Cardiff. Fifteen. There were several circumstances which combined to make a good gate at Cardiff to-day. First, and perhaps most important, was the fact that the Londoners had defeated Newport on Saturday. This in itself argued that a magnificent fight would take place, and necessarily a large amount of interest resulted. Then, again, it was holiday time, added to which it was a magnificent day. It was, therefore, no wonder that at least 20,000 people were present on the Cardiff Arms Park. There were no changes in the originally-advertised team, the men turning out as follows ;— Blackheath: Back, L. Humfrey three-quarter backs, T. H. C. Fegan. 51. Toller, W. H. Devon- shire, and M. ü. C. Tandy half-back.s, P. H. IMaturm aiiii R. S. Baiss; forwards, A. Allport, (cap- tain), l\ Maud, C. Dixon, F. C. Lohden, F. Mitchell, E. Bonham-Carter, H. W. Finlinson, and J. C. Higby. Cardiff: Back, E. P. Biggs three quarter backs, Norman Biggs (captain), D. Fitzgerald, J. K. Elliott, and T. W. half backs, 13. Sweet-Fscott and Selwyn Biggs; forwards. A. F. Hill, W. H. Smith, W. Cope, A. Lewis, R, Davies, W. Davies, S. Cravos. tmdvV. J. Elsey, Keferee, Mr. J. Ashton, Lancashire Union. Blackheath winning the toss, Gus Lewis started operations for the home team, who had the SUll in their faces. The first scrimmage was fought out a little to the Blackheath side of the half-way line. Baiss started his men in double quick time, but the Cardiff tackling was very close, and at the outside not more than half a dozen yards were gained. Over the division line for a moment, and then play went back to its original positioll just inside the visiting half. A loose rush of the forwards brought them hack, to close on the Cardiff 25 flag, where Selwyn Biggs stopped them with 8, smart kick to touch. Thus, early in the game the 'Heathens were having the best of matters in the tight packs. Twice Cardiff got the ball, but were immediately pushed back by Black- heath before they could heel out. On the third occa- sion Sweet-Escott managed to get it away, but Norman Biggs, who was entrusted with it, started the passing very wildly, and Toller, intercepting, got in a kick which moved play still closer to the Cardiff 25. Here Blackheath had a magnificent chaiic-e. Maturin got the ball from the pack, and with the whole of his three-quarters lying on his right, with only Fitzgerald and N. Biggs to oppose them, something tangible ought to have re- sulted. The ball, however, was sent right along the ground, and a fine opportunity was lost. Then the Cardiffians wheeled a scrimmage. Gus Lewis and Smith came away with the ball at their toes, and after a few yards' dribbling N, Biggs got possession. He put in a punt that went clean up to Humfrey, whose return lost the visitors ground. Scrimmaging in the Blackheath 25, however, was of very short deration, for the ball, getting amongst the forwards, Maud and Lohden came clean away to half-way. Here Loh[ien picked up and gave Dixon a pitSS, and the latter l'an to the Cardiff 2b before he was stopped. Then plav settled just inside the Cardiff 25, from where, by a Geries of short rushes, Cardiff worked to just outside the quarter flag'- It was a nip and tuck game so far, and neither team had gained any material advantage, A bit of smart passing between S. Biggs, Sweet-Escott, and N. Biggs enabled the latter to gain a few yards, and then, when at half- way, Swœt-Escot-t started some passing from the scrimmage. S. Biggs got possession, and cleared the opposing three-quarters-in fine style. He threw out a somewhat wild pass to the right, which was, how- ever, taken right above his head by Fitzgerald. The ex-Grange man got past the full back in fine style, and turned over it beautiful pass to N. Biggs, who, easily out-pacing his pursuers, scored a fiue try right behind the posts, which he himself converted. The re-start saw play settle right on the Blackheath line. A fifth three-quarter was now put out until the visi- tors had cleared to outside their 25 flag. From here they started SOille passing, which went right across to Devonshire, who, half eluding the tackle of Pearson, got in a kick which reached tovch at the Cardiff quarter flag. Cardiff, however, were asserting their superiority in the scrimmages, and this enabled the blue and b1twks to get another chance in the back line. Sweet-Escott attempted to get through the ruck instead of passing out to his wing, and when Cardiff looked like getting away they were stopped, and scrimmaging again com- menced just outside their 25. Maturin started his backs in fine style, audgoing right along the line the bt,11 eventually came to Devonshire, who scored iu the extreme corner. Fegan made a good attempt, but just missed converting. To Cardiff's drop out play so on cyme back to the Cardiff half. The visitors were the first to heel out, but Sweet-Escott was round-a hit too sharp for Baiss, and the latter fumbling, Biggs on the other side started the passing to his three-quarters. Fitzgerald got possession and put 111 a line kick, which Sal"- Biggs follow np smartly and Humfrey being pulled down-before he could get in his reply. This left the play just outside the Blackheath 25 line. Elliott and Pearson were early on the move with some inter-passing that took them to within a dozen yards of the Black- heath hoe. from the scrimmage the Cardiff left wing got a chance. It was all awkward pass sent out to Biggs, and he failed to gather it. He recovered it, however, in time to prevent Blackheath breaking away, although a couple of minutes later Tandy had better hick, and after putting in a fine run, with which be got past the Cardiff three-quarters, it was only all extra vigorous tackle by E. P. Biggs that pre- vented him passing with any judgment to his wing. The Cardiff forwHrds were instrumental in driving: the play "back to just over the half-way line, and then Sweet-Escott sent a beautiful, sharp pass out from the first scrimmage. S. Biggs, who got possession, threw over his captain's head to Fitzgerald.. The latter cleared one mall, and gave possession to Elliott when Hearing the full back. The right centre man took no charces, but sent out a fine pass to Pearson on the wing, and the latter, with a strong burst, got over the Blackheath line, grow.diag verj nearly l-rhind the pets. Biggs converted for the seco::d time. The pace was now telling its tale, especially on the Blackheath men, and their play lacked that vim and dash that had characterised it in the earlier part of the proceedings. In the tight packs the home eight were having much the better of matters, and although play had settled down in the Cctnlitt half at the "ommencement, the forwards, first by heeling out to their backs, and again by a series of loose rushes, took play to well on the Blackiieath goal line. There was a bit of a scramble at this spot, but the visitors, exhibiting keen defence, forced play to outside their 25, where half-lime was called with the score standing :— Cardiff 2 goals. Blackheath Itrv. Allport re-started for Blackheath, and, after Pear- son's return, Devonshire got in a kick, -w hich found touch close on the Cardiff 25 fla,g. Scrimmaging commenced just outside the Cardiff quarter flag. Baiss got the ball away to his three-quarters at the second attempt, but Biggs intercepted. Then, 01, the right wing, Toller stopped Fitzgerald when the latter looked like starting the Cardiff liRssing under advantageous circumstances. Slowly play worked to close on the half-way flag. Here Sweet-Escott gave his hacks a chance, but Biggs, to whom Fitzgerald gave a nice pass, was covered by Fegan before the Cardiff captain could either move or get the ball away. Toller gained a few yards, which took play to inside the Cardiff 25. Several hard scrimmages were fought out at this spot, and then Cravos, supported by Smith, came away with a, dribble, which was eventually turned to touch just over the half-way line. Exactly 1I.t mid-way, scrimmaging next commenced. Cardiff got the first pass out from the scrimmage, but no opportunity offering of hreaklng through, Fitzgerald put in a useful kick, which, if followed up, might have had some effect. Humfrey, however, wa« allowed to get in his return practically un- o1)rn-cd, and following up his kick, the Blaekbeath custodian again got possession, and but for selfishness oil his part something tan. gible might have resulted he only succeeded, how- ever, in taking play back to its old place, inside the Cardiff 25 a, few yards further hack play worked and then for picking out of a scrimmage Cardiff were penalised, and Fegan made a fine shot at goal, which fell a yard or two short. Some informality in Biggs' drop back saw a scrimmage ordered on the home 25 Line, from where Blackheath slowly moved to close on the Cardiff goal line. Scrimmages and lines-nut at this spot were bitterly contested, until Cardiff, by some- what lucky kick, got to, outside their 25. From here Fitzgerald got in another useful punt, which put play to exactly half-way. Blackheath, however, were soon back in the ('ardiff quarter, one of the forwards putting in a strong run, which looked like his going m. Two or three of the Cardiff men were required before he could lJe stopped, and a minute later similar trouble was experienced wis.li Toller, who was only brought down on the verge of the line. Just outside the 25 Cardiff were penalised, and Fegan, being called upon, made another fine attempt no more vigorous tackling than did the Cardiff eight on Monday. Both of the halves played superbly, and, alike in defence aud attack, were in lip-wp form. The three-quarters did well until the Ja,;st, ten minutes, when there was one or two bad mulls in their pass- ing. Still, on the whole, there was no fault to find with them. Biggs was ubiquitous. He was the fastest man on the field—in fact, was the Biggs of old. Pearson was smart on the other wing, but a bit weak in tackling. Both centres did well. At back E. P. Biggs made an ideal custodian, his returns being clean and well-judged, whilst his defeüce wis admir- able. BUN CORN V. NEV-POB-T. A holiday crowd which numbered about 5,000 assembled at Newport on Easter Monday morning to witness this match, which, so that it might be clear of the athletic sports in the afternoon, was fixed to begin at eleven o'clock. The day was beautifully fine and summer-like. Shortly after eleven a.m. the teams fielded as follows:—Runcorn Back, S. Houghton; three-quarter backs, H. Myers, G. Robinson, J. Butterworth, and Gregory half-backs, S, Abrams and J. Faulkner forwards, R. Light- foot, J. Langley, J. Davies, H. Williams, J. Autrobus, J. J. Stuhhs, A. Taylor, and G. Moores. Newport: Back, C. J. Thomas; three-quarter backs, A. J. Gould, w. G. James, [(.Thomas, and A. W. Boucher; half-backs, F. C. Pa.rfitt and MatHannen; forwards, T. C. Graham, J. Hannan, A. Henshaw, W. H. Watts, H. Packer, T. Pook, J. Bowiey, and T. Newcombe. Referee. Mr. W. E. Carpmael. Blackheath Football Club. Graham kicked off Ü'0111 the gymnasium end, and the return went in touch near the visitors' 25. The Cheshire forwards wheeled the scrum beautifully, and went off with a, big rush to the centre. Newport quickly responded, and Bowiey rushed up to the visitors' line, where, however, for off-side play, a free was allowed. After open centre work, W. L. Thomas made a, grand sprint, but the ball only rolled over the line and JRuncorn touched down. A vcry hot forward game ensued, with fast, loose scrums, both, packs getting in plenty of sharp work. Newport did most of the attack, and if W. L. Thomas had been properly followed up in his splendid sprints scores must have fallen to the home side. As it was he was allowed to make his own way unattended, and was brought down by Houghton, who played a magnificent game at full back. The Runcorn pack was a hard-working, vigorous lot, with heaps of scrimmaging ability and tackling, which was sound to a degree. A couple of minors, however, were exacted from kicks over by Ll. Thomas. A splendid attack was at length put in by the home three-quarters, [LDd, after fine passing by James, Gould, and Boucher, the last-named ran over, but it was found that Gould had gone in touch in one of his rushes. The advantage thus lost was soon taken up by Bnncom, who, by a good forward rush, got into the home half, and, taking it on, forced a minor. Boucher dropped out, and Sammy Houghton replying in touch, a lot of hot scrimmaging took place at mid-field. It was a hard ding-dong game, the forwards for the most part get- ting the brunt of the work. Newport's passing was a good deal off, and the visitors tackled with great effect, but there were no very conspicuous incidents. Charlie Thomas pluckily saved one or two rushes of the Cheshire forwards. The first try fell to Euucorn from one of a lot of loose, work. Butterworth gathered and threw to Gregory, who rushed over, but Houglitou failed at the place. Close forward work was the order after the drop out. By a series of useful kicks Runcorn got up to the home line, but a few short, sharp passes between Jim Haill1ell, Bowiey, and Packer brought relief, and at mid-field Runcorn was penalised for off-side play, but Boucher's kick was of little advantage. The home passing was too slow and flurried to be of much effect against the keen tackling which it was opposed to, and up to half-time Newport had nothing to boast of. At length Mat Hannen got away clean from a serum and passed out beautifully to Wallace Watts, who rushed xiassed Houghton and landed a grand try, which Gould failed to goal. Half-time was then called, the score standing:— Newport I try, 2 minors. Runcorn 1 try. After the interval Davies re-started and Gonld re- turned to centre touch. Newport started a forward rush, led by Graham and Bowley, which was soon re- sponded to by aflyillg kick back to touch. A round of j18ssing was then mulled by Ll. Thomas knocking on. Gould dropped over the line and Houghton touched down. Play settled near the visitors' 25, but another unsuccessful round. of passing started by Parfitt lost ground, and Charlie Thomas had rush in to save a forward advance on the part of Runcorn, who got along to the Newport 25, where, however, Carpmael gave a penalty in favour of the home side, and Boucher dropped to the centre. Another rush by the visitors' pack took things Oll. and Stubbs kicking over Charlie Thomas touched down. A lot of open centre work and exchange kicking followed. Gregory got clear away for Runcorn, and but for the smart splinting of Boucher he would have ran in with a try, Piay settled at the Newport 25, and was still kept up with the hottest vigour, Newport having to do a Jot of defence work against the hot rushes of the Runcorn forwards. Henshaw and Packer got off with a relieving dribble, but kicking too hard, the ball was smartly gathered by Houghton, who found touch again at the home 25, and the attacks of the visiting forwards were repeated. Davies was winded by a heavy fall in one of the strong scrums, but on play being resumed Faulkner gathered and looked all over a scorer. He was, however, hauled down before he could out to Gregory. A serum. was forced within two yards of the Newport line, but from the tight struggle Harry Packer got off with a nice relieving dribble to the open. Still the Runcom for- wards, by smart wheeling, stuck to the task of forcing the heme men back. Wallace Watts struck out with a dribble, which Houghton again gathered, and found touch near mid-field. Robinson started passing and threw to BHttenv, •rttu who was thrown in touch near the home 25, wùer", 4iic forwards had a series of hard tussles. Pook and Gould rushed the ball out to the centre with good dribbles, and a round of passing between Packer and Boucherdooked like letting the homesters in. Houghton at full back, however, was equal to the pressure for a time, hut after a lot of loose, fast work, a round of long passes ended in Bowley rushing over at the end of the line with a big try. Gould's place hardly rose the ball from the ground. After the drop out Newport again attacked, but a slovenly pass from Gould was missed by James, and a good chance was lost. Just before the call of time a big rush was made by the home for- wards, and a try fell to Henshaw close to the uprights, where Gould had little difficulty in convert- ing. Th'S closed the affair, and the no side wss at l11 ro,! whistled, leaving- the final score- Newport 1 goal, 2 tries, 2 minorg. Buncorn 1 try, 1 minor. REl\IARKS. It was one of the hardest matches which Newport has bad for the season. There was nothing but hard- pegging all the way through, and the disparity in the i score scarcely does credit to the great game which i runcom played. The Cheshire men, especially for- ward, are fit for any company. They showed New- port some tricks in wheeling the scrums..There was one manoeuvre in the scrums which was cer- tainly novel aud effecti.-e. :1he two men lacking last in the scrum as they felt the pressure ease, and the pack giving way oue way or another, would turn round, and instead of facing the scrum do whatever pushing was necessary with their haunches, so that they could see how the hall came out, and in case it was dribbled against them they could fall on and secure it. Taking things through and through on the day's show the Newport forwards were second best. They were slow and wanting in dash and devil until within the last quarter of au hour, and then had some lucky openings to snatch the game away from being any but a satis- factory draw. Newport's forwards either aeein to have given up the art of heeling out or studiously neg ect it. Against a pack of the calibre of Runcorn it did net. pay to try the pushing through game. Houghton, the full hack, made a brilliant display, and thoroughly impressed the Newport people with his capacity for the county and international honours which he has borne. It is a pity that Gould either does not himself practice to do effective place kicking or encourage someone else in the team to do so. Since England has been hons de (;0 ,),a. and Cooper has cleared out there is no one who can be counted to do anything like good place kicking. With moderately well-directed shots the defeat by Blackheath might have been averted and the win against Runcorn been made much more secure. SWANSEA iV. WIGAN. Wigan, after their defeat by Cardiff, journeyed to Swansea on Easter Monday and played the all whites before a huge Bank Holiday crowd. The weather was very warm. There were about 8,000 spectators present. The following were the players, there being several felterations from Saturday's teams:- Svmisea: Back, W.J. Bancroft: three-quarter backs, C. Coke, C. Tanner, Gordon, and E. Thorogood; half tacks, Blaekmore and J. Wilcox forwards, F. Mills, Ii., Th. -mas, J. Jenkins, Arthur Lewis, Alt" Lewis, S. Rico, Russell, and W. Smith. Wiya,i ■ Back, Wiu- stmiley three-quarter backs, J. E. Roberts, J. Railtou. J. Wdkden, and W. Whitehead ^h&lf backs, W. Halli well aud H, Faireleugh forwards, W. UnsViottb, G, Higby, U. M'Namara, E. Webster, J. Lowe, E. Deiupsey, J. Darbisbire, and J. Horroeks. Referee, Mr. Gavin Hour" Llaneliy. Wei-ster kicked off for Wiean from the Mumbles end and Bancroft returned to the centre. From here Thorogood gave Coke a chance, and he darted off and was not pulled down till he encountered Win- stanley OIl the Wigan goal line. Thence,, after a Wigan got away by good forward play to the centre, and here Walkden kicked up over che Swansea line. Bancroft leisurely followed it over to allow a touch down and dribbled it quietly ou, seats the character of the game. Even at the en^ Wigan showed fight, and the last five mÜJutes ""2.8 the warmest they gave Swansea. The try they got, however, in the first five minutes was a regular fluke, and was brought about entirely by Bancroft's coolness," which sometimes with him is a synonym for recklessness. He had heaps of time to kick out of bounds, but the Wigan man followed him determinedly, and dropped on it whilst he was playing it with his feet. Two penalty goals brought them npsides with Wigan at half-time, and in the second half Coke crossed twice and Tanner once, leaving Swansea a big macrgin for go-as-you-please play at the end. Haltiwell, the visitors' captain, was about their best- back, and Unsworth, Bigby, and Webster were the most dashing forwards. Bancroft played a champion game for Swansen., kicking superbly all through. The halves had the best of their opponents for once, and the three-quarters ail did well, especially Coke and Riee. Mills and Russell were the best of the pack, who played the best game of the season. DEYONPOBT ALBION V. PENAETH. This Easter attraction took place at Plymouth on Monday at the Home Park ground, the Albions winning by a goal and one try to two tries. Each team had a strong combination in the field, the only notable absentee being Alexander, the right wing flyer of the visitors. Quite 10,000 spectators were present. The teams were :—.ilWon W. Hocken, back H. George, W. E. Sowden, W. Bildings, and P. Webber, three-quarters W. George and J. Long- half-baeks; G. Allington (captain), A. May, W. Chiswell, J. Fox, J. Laverty, F. Long, F. Tozer, and F. Mallett, forwards. Penarth: C. T. Kirby, hack; H. Kirby, R. M. Garrett, H. E. Morgan (captain), and W. G. Lambert, three-quarters; G. W. Shep- herd and T. H. Hutchings, half-backs G. Brown, E. Ellis, P. Jckson, T. Morris, E. Evans, J. L. Lawday, G.IMatthews, and W. Gibbs, forwards. Referee, Mr. R. H. Rowe, Exeter. Gibbs kicked off, and the Albion attacked. Scrumming well, Penarth attacked, and after a rare bout of passing Shepherd scored under the post, but Garrett failed. On resuming, play for a time was very even. Albion scrumming well, however, got away in a body, and after a set of exchanges Bildings steered clear, but failed to get in. Kirby was to the front in transferring play to half-way, but Albion came away, and, after Webber had cleared Morgan, Fox scored, but the kick was off. On the kick out Albion played a smart game, and only the splendid defence of the visitors saved what looked like a certain score. Albion, after attacking strongly, gave a splendid chance to Bildings, who ran through, and, being tackled, handed Oil to Webber, who scored. axd, majorising, the home men led by eight points to three. This was all the scoring in the first half, but on re- suming play Albion attacked, keeping a close look- cut. Shepherd and Hutchings took play to half- way, but Tozer soon dribbled back. Smart work by both teams kept play on the dividing line, strong runs by Webber and Sowden being responded to by Kirby, who kicked to the centre. Shepherd took play to the Albion 25 again. A strong effort by Lambert was spoiled by Sowden, and after some loose play Bildings penetrated the Penarth quarters. Albion commenced to attack, but, the passing failing, Kirby and Shepherd got away, and after a series of scrums on the half-way Kirby ran in at the corner. Garrett, however, failed to place a goal. On re-starting, Penarth tried hard to break through, but the Albion defence was superb, ami at the close of tiJne/the home men were declared the winners by eight points to six. REMAKES. Ou the day's form All, were the superior team. Over and over again their backs ran and passed to perfection, but a miss at the critical moment by one or the other of the wings spoiled many a good bit of play. The forwards of the home team barely held their own, hut George and Long at half proved supe- rior to Hutchinson and Shejjpard. The three-quarters of both teams were in fine form, but Sowden and BildÙlgs for the Albion were far superior to Morgan and Garrett. Of the wings Percy Webber, of the home team, was a- big first-, his touch-line runs being extremely effective. Hubbert George also did well, but second honours must be accorded to Kirby, who played a splendid game for the visitors, and bv a marvellous effort scored the second try. Glarrett also.rendered good service, but his play was far below international form, and, taken on the whole, disappointing-. Lambert had not much to do, but what be did was sruar1>:Y done. Of the full backs nothing but praise can be said. TYLDESLEY V. KEATH. The Lancastrians, continuing their tour, encoun- tered Neath oil Monday on the Bird-in-Haad Field before a record gate. The following were the teams: —Tyid-esley Back, J. Fearney three-quarter hacks, E. Evans, H. Shaw, H. Taylor, and J. B. Howarth half backs, W. Berry and J. Berry; forwards, J. Shejiherd, W, Sutelifle, J. Tucker, Gerrard, J. Fell, Fearnley, Worthington, and Roberts. Neath: Back, Joe Davies three-quarter backs, W. Jones, J. Forbes, J. Bees, and Y. Davies; half backs, W. Thomas and A. Cross; forwards, F. Hutchinson, A. Hutchinson, H. Jones, Griff Lewis, J. Edwards, J. Reynolds, M. Reynolds, and T. Thomas. Referee, J)1r, J. Meredith. Tyl.icsley kicked off, aud F. Davies smartly returned to the visitors' territory, where a scrum was formed. The visitors were very smart in getting the bail away, but were penalised, and Joe Davies got a minor by a long kick. After the re-start the Northerners displayed some dribbling tactics, and gained considerable ground, but Hutchinson was on the rdert, and gave his backs a chance, Cross and W. Jones showing prominently. From a line out the N eathites got well away, and Cross, receiving from Wat Thomas, dropped a lovely goal. Sha w re-started. F. Davies punted well, and, backing up his kick, got, near scoring, but Gerrard, Fell, an<iHow",rG saved well. The Tykes wore shortly afterwards rewarded with a minor. Hutchinson re- commenced hostilities by kicking well into the whites' ground, and Jones, following up, prevented the return, and for off-side play by Vi. Berry the visitors were hgicill penalised. Phy was now delayed through one of the Lancastrians being temporarily injured. Fearney, the visiting custodian, was well cheered for a long run and kick, which put his side on the aggressive. Shortly after Cross gave relief by a kick. Play was now in mid-field, and became very exciting, when Shaw and Worthington were instrumental in removing the venue to the homesters' line. W. Jones, Hutchiuson, and Lewis got well away, and F. Davies missed an excelleur chance of scoring. Taylor, taking a long pass, ran in from half way. The place kick proved futile. Half-time score:— Neath 1 dropped goal, 1 minor Tyidesley 1 try, 1 minor Hutchinson, the international forward, Meted off, and the visiting forwards, headed by Tucker, Sut- clifie, and Fell, dribbled down and obtained another ;>lÍnor. tile visitors pelllied the N eathlte» minor. Resuming, tne visitors penned the Neathites on their hue, and Joe Davies' kick being charged down, nearly proved disastrous for the homesters. Jim Reynolds, Lewis, and Howel Jones burst through with a dribble, hut kicked too hard, and Fearnley put in a judicious kick, and Evans scored in the corner. The place again failed. On the resump- tion of play the Neathites played with more dash and vigour, and the game became very rough, Wat Thomas and Howel Jones being injured. The visitors forced two minors in rapid succession. Then Sut- cliffe scored a try, which converted. The homesters were now played out, and the visitors were having it all their own way, rushing the scrums in fine form. After a serum the visitors were peualiEet1, Cross essaying for goal, but the kick fell short. Time was nov/ called with the score: — Tyidesley 1 goal, 2 tries, 3 minors Neath 1 (dropped) goal, 1 minor PONTYPRIDD V. LLW STNYPIA. Pontypridd 1 try, 1 minor Llwyuypia 3 minors. B. « "ltKS. The score pretty accurately indicates the character of the giiiue. The visitors seemed to have everything pretty well their own way during the greater part of the first half, hud the fact that they did not score was simply due to the tackling of the homesters. Quite a change came over the second half. Ends 113;i scarcely been changed before it was seen that the homesters were bent upon making matters warm for the lads from the Ehondda,whose tackling was deadly and their passing smart, short, and effective, but, in spite of their efforts, the homesters penned them in their own ter- ritory. That the homesters would score seemed pretty certain, and the scene was of the wiU.iest description when Greene planted the ball on the right side of the line. Pontypridd thoroughly deserve the title of "Champions of the Rliondda." At the end of the game Greene was carried out of the field on tae shoulders of the more enthusiastic of his admirers. WELSH CUY-FINAL TIE. CRiER V. WESTMINSTER ROVERS. Played in Wynnstay Park, Baabon, on Monday. The weather was glorious, and the attendance was IHrge. In the first half neither side scored, but the second half had not longheen started before Blockiey scored the first goal for Chirk. Before the finish Chirk obtained another point, and won by two goals to one. The cup was afterwards presented to the winners by Mr. L. Ken-nek. CHARITY MATCH AT CARDIFF The teams selected to play a match at the Cardiff i rms Park in aid of St. Teilo's Church this (Tues- day) afternoon have been slightly altered. Mr. Norman Biggs's team wr;U be composed as follows -.— Back, D. Fitzgerald; three-quarter backs, T. W. Pearson, J. H. Fegan, J. E. Elliott, aud Norman Biggs half backs, B. J8. Sweet-Escott and Selwyn Biggs; forwards, W. H, Smith, J. G. Bigby, F.
The Flat Racing Season. LINCOLN MEETING OPENS: TO-DAY. Venator's Last Words on the Prospects of Runners in the Big Handicap. I The four months' interval since last year's campaign has passed very rapidly, and to-day we have upon us what promises to be a busy- legitimate season. Lincoln lias been depos-ed from the place of honour in opening the tia.t racing season, but- it is not likely to suffer by reason of this, for the list of entries for the Carholme events is an exceptionally good all round one, and, although there is a sport-iiisj of silk at Kempton Pa.rk and Newcastle, be- sides considerable attractions at Manchester, it is not until Tuesday that the serious busi- ness will rea-lly commence. The situation ae regards the Lincoln Handicap practically re- mains unchanged. True, it appears an excep- tionally open race, but there is every probabiliiy that Grey Leg a.nd Le Xic-hain will remain favourite until the end of the chapter. I 0 will commence, however, by giving the latest ascertainable list of PROBABLE STARTERS AND JOCKEYS Horse. J (,cker.. Baron de Hirsch's Windgall, 5yrs, 9sl J Watts Mr W W Fulton's Laodamia, 4yrs, 8s t 101b F Piatt Baron de Bothschild's Le Nicharn, 4yrs, 8st 71b TLoa-tes Colonel North's Lady Hermit, 5yrs, 7st 91b G Barrett Mr T Worton's Victor Wild, 4vrs, 7si 81b G0u¡!"ll Lord Hastings's Breach, 6yrs, 7st81b Fmlay Mr Daniel Cooper's Juvenal, 5yr, 7st 71b G Brown Mr E Foster's Queen of Navarre, 4yrs, 7st 61b Allsop-p Mr H T Barclay 's Simon Fraser, 4yrs, 7st 51b A Watts Mr B A Oswald's Mena, 4yrs, 7st 41b J Woodburn Sir J Miller's Lord George, aged, 7st 41b S Loates Mr Jersey's Milford, 4yrs, 7st 31b Trundley Duke of Westminster's Grey Leg, 3yrs, 7st llb Huxtable Mr T Jenning's William, 4yrs, 6st 131b H Toon Sir JElulldell Maple's Macready, 5yrs, 6s 1131b Bradford Mr C Archer's Arise, 6yrs, 6st-131b Wall Mr D Hollis Xury, 3yrs, 6st 91b Chandley Mr Wallace Johnstone's San Giovanni, 4yrs, 6st 71b Knowles Mr J Snarry's Onnac, 4yrs, 6st 6lb Harrison Mr Manton's Beggar's Opera, 3vrs, 6st 5ib W Pratt Colonel Heyward's Marnovia, 3yrs, 'Izi. ') 6st 31b Chaloner JYIr J A Miller's Prince Hal, 3yrs. 6st R Chaloner Duke of Beaufort's Gallant Queen, 3yrs, 6st Payne Rumour still points strongly to the fact of Windgall not being see.n out, and it is more than likely that the Egerton House candidate will be found figuring in the Trial Stakes.. With such a horseman a,, Watts on his b:ick he is bound to be respected if he should run, although I consider he will hardlv mamige to concede the weight to others below Iiini in 1 ne list. Le Nich&m still continues to enjoy iiio confidence of those in the know, and. t; ained to the hour, probably no better course could be found for the selected of Ha-yhoe's sta.ole. That his connections fancy him I know full well, but. whilst quite, prepared to see the son of Tristan—La Nc-ce acquit him- self creditably, I cannot take him on my side for the same reason as I discard Windga.11, and that is I believe him to be handicapped up to his best form. Lady Hermit, by the manner in which she has been. supjxirted, is ] without doubt the selected of Colonel North. At the same time, taking her on the, Lan- cashire Handicap form at Manchester, I am convinced she has not the best of the matter with Macready. Neither, on the same running, has Victor Wild, who bears his owner's money and confidence. Queeu of Navarre, on her trial form with Phocion, looks to have a chance. but. I do net believe her tc lie in fettle just yet, and, although she liMy run prominently." I .>n- rather inclined to think her time is a bit later on. Grey Leg, who shares the honour of favouritism with Le Nicham. must on two- year-olcl form have a look in. At the same time. I hardly think he is such a wonderful three-year-old as to get hOIlte with 7st. lib. in the saddle. His form will bear the strictest examination, it is true, and, furthermore, he won a rattling good trial; but, beyond the fact of his having a crusher to carry. I am afraid that a lad will not be able to do him justice at the finish. William, with 6st. 131b., is, to my way of thinking, one of the most genuine candidates in the race, and on book form nothing, to my mind, stands a better chance. In his trial he simply romped away from Lord William and Cypria, and since he has been backed in the right quarter, and for good money. Of those left in, Arise, Xury, San Giovanni, and Mar- novia are ail I intend to deal with. xVrise, 1. hear, is not in the best of fettle, and may not rttn so prominently as was tilt- cas." last year. Had all gone well with her, I should probably have given her a good word, but as it is, I think we must look for her later on. Xury I must count as dangerous, for he has been doing remarkably well at home, and had much the best of the spin with Tibbie Shials. San Giovanni is nearly at the bottom of the handicap, and such a good account of him reaches me that I strongly fancy him as likely to finish in the first flight. Another candidate for whom I have a good word is Marnovia. I cannot forget the manner in which she beat Deiphos at Sandown Park last year. Speed, of course, will be found her forte but, at the same time, I think it likely she may stay the distance, in which event she is sure to be there or thereabouts at the finish. In summing up, I shall split my vote between WILLIAM and MARNOVIA, awarding the vacant position to San Giovanni, who might prove a good investment each way.

CLOISTEE, AND THE GRAND NATIONAL, SENSATIONAL PK-OCEEDINGS. As the result of Professor Prichard's examination of Cloister yesterday morning, Cloister wa.s strwdt out of the Grand National at about twenty ininatsM to three in the afternoon. Mr. Grant at the same time took Ardcarn out of the Lauca,shire Steeplechase, with a view to his representing him in the Grand National on Friday. Needless to a,dd, tlus step has caused intense excitement in racing circles.
A JOCKEY KILLED. A fat ft 1 accident to a jockey occurred yesterday afternoon at Amcyshflm Råcc Meeting-.

GOLF IN SOUTH WALES. The New Pavilion at Porthcawi t-ormauy Opened. For soiuo time past- the golf club at Forth- eawl has held the foremost place amongst or- gamsatiocs of a similar kind, and has, perhaps, doiie more than any other club to popularise this manly sport in South Wales. Y et, although this has been so. the club has con- tii.ued for this length of time without posrsfss- iug a club paviliou, and the members have been necessarily handicapped by having to tir their headquarters ;,t the I'ortlicawl Hotel, which is soiv-.e cousiden'b'c distance from, the links. Kuw the Wallt has been supplied, and on Mon- day a pavilion was opened which in every way is worthy of the club. The occasion was quite a. red letter day, and special excursions, which. Mere largely patronised, were run from OarditI, b v, an sea, and all the principal towns in the district. Before the opening of the new pavilion competitions for numerous prizes, offered by friends of the club. were com- menced, and the links early in the morning presented a very animated appearance. Quite a galaxy of ladies were present, arid their sum- lDFhke oostumes, addea to the bright scariet jackets worn by many of the gentlemen, made the scene an extremely picturesque one. King Sol shone forth with all his brilliancy—in fact, the da.v could not ha. e been a more suitable one, and the turf it-(-If. dried by the recent tine weather, was everything that could be desired. Soon after noon the players and onlookers ad- p journed to the new pavilion, which is situated -*t- the- town ice of the linkt>. aud <jOiiiiiiai.s a tine view down Channel. The building itself deserves more than a- passing reference, both on account of its extremely tasteful and pic- turesque appearance and its novelty of n'ute- rial. so far, at least, as this part of flit- country is coscemed. Its external aspect is rather that of one of the old gabled and half-timbered buildings which are so characteristic of many rural English la;.us capes. its tile-red roof, warm stone-coloured walls, overhung with broad eaves and barge-boards, combine to make one feel that its interior must lie a homelike refuge to the weary golfer. And so it is. The interior is divided into a large smoke-room, running almost the length of the building', and ladies' aud gentlemell's dress; rl" rooms. while there is also a caddies' shelter on th" wing. The ladies1 room is a pretty little parlour^ with walls daintily panelled, a. large oriel window, and a- very pretty hearth and fireplace. The main club-room, designated as the smoke-room, is 50ft. by 28ft., and also decorated by panelling, a.nd has two oriels run- ning nearly the whole length of the verandah, from which can be obtained as pretty and ex- tensive a se-a view as one could wish. Opening from the main room, at the opposite end from the ladies' quarters, is the geiitlemen's dressing- room. In addition, the building contains a bar and kitchen, which are situated at the rear, and also a workshop provided for the professional. After those present had ali assembled cm the verandah or in the vicinity of the building Mr. Riley, with a few appro remarks, presented Mrs. Gordon (lady of the manor) with a eolden key. with which, after Mrs. Gordon had thanked those present for their kind reception of her, she unlocked the door, and declared the }>avlion open. A gold brooch was also presented to Mrs. Riley as a memento of the ocv««on, and at the same time he (Mr. Riley) said that a similar gift- iN-a, to have been received by Lady Morgan, who. through a domestic- bereavement, was unavoidably absent. The cercmony heing completed, the company adjourned to the club- room. and there sat down to an excellent luncheon. —After the toasts. The Queen and "The Lady of t.he Ma-nor." had been duly honoured and suitably responded to, the link* were again visited and the various competition# resumed. The meeting win be resumed to-day (Tuesday). Amongst those who were pre**s>* at the opening ceremony were the Rev. R. W. Gordon and Mrs. Gordon, the _Revs. Z. T. Williams (rector of Mar gam h "W..Tones, aDd T Williamson; Colonels Wootl. Page, and Glancv: Councillor Lucovitch. Captains Ley and Richardson. Dr. Bkyrroe, Mr. Riley (presi- dent of the club) and Mrs. Riley. Mr..f. Simpson (captain), and Mrs. Simpson. Mr. Hi. Vivian (hoo. secretary), Mrs. Vivian, and "Mis* Vivian, and it-h-ers too numerous to mention. "wGiJ'I.r
