GREAT BAND CONTESTS. WELSH COMPETITORS AT THE CRYSTAL PALACE. The annual brass band competitions took place at the Crystal Palace on Saturday. The entries were conspicuous for two features— one, the absence of all the crack bande, such as the Besses o' th' Barn and the BLack Dike, and the other the increase in the number of bands that entered. From Wales thirteen bonds had entered for one or other of the seven, competitions, the largest group being in the preliminary cup section, for which Blaengwynfi, Caerphilly, Cwmbran, Senghenydd, and Ynyshir com- peted. Owing to an unfortunate circumstance the Senghenydd men were unable to com- pete. Amongst the awards were the follow- ing:— Thousand guinea championship, won by the Wingates Temperance Band. Linthwaite was second, Wyke fourth, and Irwell Springs (who won last year) eighth. Aberaman and Tonyrefail were not placed. Grand shield section, won by Spenoer's Steelworks. The Lewis'-Merthyr Colliery Band (Mr. J. Locker) competed. Junior cup section, won by Riehworth and Ryburn. Nantymoel Band (Mr. W. Smith) competed. Preliminary shield section: 1st, Wilson's Band, Hull; 2nd, Albion Colliery, Cilfynydd (Mr. A. Foxall); 3rd, Gilfach Goch (Mt. W. G. Paterson). Preliminary cup section, wen by Barnsley Borough Band. Neither of the Welsh bands in this section gained a place. Consolation cup section, won by Wrightmg- ton Band. Bargoed Band not placed. Reed band section, won by 1st V.B. Buffs.
