FOOTBALL NOTES. 1 I should like to instruct those of my readers who FTRE a bit puzzled as to the pronunciation of the French phrase which I have adopted as my nom de plums how to do it. F^ELY translated it means •' Forward." It is not pronounced as it is spelled, but as if spelled aun avaung, with the accent on the last syllable. Those who have afflicted me in the pastjby calling me "enn a want" will do so in the future at their peril. Notwith. standing this lesson in French,'given "free, gratis, for nothing," I do not set myself up as an authority I on that beautiful language; and must decline, by anticipation, to answer any further questions on I either pronunciation or spelling. • To turn to the game. The match between Bangor AND Denbigh at Bhyl on Saturday was a fitting termination to the series of contests for the Northern Welsh Football Association Challenge Cup, which ended on Saturday in favour of Ba&gor. It was a teal battle of giants. I have never seen fiaer play in my life than that of the Tudges, and W. R. Williams at back. In spite of the evident bias of the spectators, the Denbigh team played magnificently from begin- ning to end. The terrible impetuosity of their charges, and the accuracy and force of their tackling and kicking, elicited cheers even from many 01 the spectators who were most bitterly opposed to them. There was fire, dash, and cool- ness combined in their play throughout to an emineat degree. I repeat. I never saw finer play. r J Wynne Edwards and W. Jones at half were only less brilliant than W. Tudge, their splendid col- league. Rdsed, it was to me a matter of surprise that the Denbigh half-backs were passed at all, and of still greater astonishment that their superb back play should have been broken throughout that havieg been done, the wonder was, not that Bangor scored three goals, but that they didn't score more. Iken was a tower of strength in the Denbigh goal. The assaults delivered on him were no child's play, BO far-off kick falling gently into his hands or landing the ba 1 at his feet far in advance of the attacking forwards but short, quick stabs, as it were, at his charge, home thrusts delivered closely and with tremendous force and quickness, the ball in many instances no sooner being etopped by him and returned into play than it catne crashing in again in an entirely different place and with all the heart of the kicker in it. Still, Bangor only fcored three goals « I think the Denbigh men made a mistake in playing three backs, at least in the first helf. They had the wind with them then, and ought to have played as many forwards as they could crowd into the first fighting line, and battered the Bangor goal till they had battered Hewitt through. They might safely have depended on their .Wonderful backs and halfs, and the 'defensive game could have been played in the second half. I repeat what I wrote a week or two ago, 41 THE BEST WAY TO DEFEND YOURSELF IS TO ATTACK YOUR OPPONENT." This is tiue in all things, and almost at all times. • As to their forwards, Morris and the two Williams were the most brilliant, the former shining particularly in the fine bit of play which ended in a goal, and making a splendid spurt shortly afterwards which nearly ended in another. Evans and R. Jones on the right were quite fit to be in the team, but had not so many chances of distinguishing themselves, the play being chiefly on the right and up the centre. On the whole I should say there is not, on their present form, a finer team in the association, except Bancor Football Club. ° And Bangor Football dub is, I think un- doubtedly, in spite of their defeat at Carnarvon the other dav, tbe very best team in the association. They have strength, speed dash and science, TA a very much greater extent than any other team in my opinion, and more than all they have that without which all would be useless in face of a club possessing it, viz., a considerable amount ot combination. As regards their play on Saturday, I can't give them any higher praise than say they thoroughly I beat the magniticent team opposed to them. Without in the slightest degree casting any reflection on the other players. I think their very best men were, named in order of merit: Humphrey Jones, S. Willmann, J. F. Williams, M. Hewitt, Willie Lewis, and Robert Williams. The others were, in my opinion, equally good with each other. I say equally good, advisedly. To sum up shortly, in the words of one of the players, the backs and halfs saved the game in the first half, and the forwards won it in the second. < I put in an appearance at Bangor on Easter Monday, and WAS tewarded by seeing four free 1.1 • AMON& the spectators, and the most splendid GAME it has been my good fortune to witnass down here, a gamo surpassing even that of the previous Saturday. • » Of the free fights I CAN'T say much in way of praise, as, as far AS I could see, TH* R-AN about nothing and ended either in SOMETHING very nearly approaching A FLT 0f crying, or in the interference of the police. I like to see a good fight of any kmd, BUT I loose all interest in it as soon as one side or both begin to cry at the pros. pect of defeat. I never found this tendency during my long residence in England among the English. Why cry ? If you go in for a fight at all fight to the end as well as you can, and if beaten smile, and bear no malice, and don't give UJ. The fighting instincts of a race ought to be Encouraged and educated in some way or another, consistent, of course with law and order, and the nation that does this' most perfectly will stand first and live longest in the battle d life. I commend to the attention of all those sincerely desirous of fostering Welsh Nationalism," of which we bear so much just now, those words of Tennyson in "Locksley Hall:" "Lat them fight." I would add, "And teach them how to do it." < HOWEVER, we'll talk aoout that another time. it LS,I.TEP088ible to describe in the limited space at my DISPOSAL the magnificent play of the Bangor team against the Aston Villans Second Eleven, in ,111, ^NE of the Birmingham men on being TL-I U THE game what he thought of the "ASHMEN s play replied emphatically, "They ougbt to enter for the English Cup." I endorse his saying, and hope it will be done at once. I don t kaovv really who was the very best mm on the field, but I fancy Willmann, though Humph- rey Jones and J. Williams run him hard fox the rey Jones and J. Williams run him hard for the firot place, but really Willmann's play was splen- did. I didn't think he could have shown as much dash and fire as he did on Monday. John Wil- liams is too savage, though immensely effec- tive. Willie Lewis's brother kept goal, and did not discrodit himself by any means, though his work was not very hard, J. Smith, captain, played brilliantly, as, indeed, did the whole team. W. Lewis, B. J. Roberta, and R. Williams, each in turn doing something especially good F. R. Jone3, who is credited with two out of three goals, played, well. but, I am told, is not in his best form. But even to a stranger (us I), his skill as A player is apparent, and makes one long to see him at his beet. I had tea with the Villans atter the match, and they were particularly warm in their praise of Fred.'s play. One of them said: He's the best player on the field." • » The Birmingham men were not the Aston Villa first team, but the second. Tile first team is touring in Scotland. I should like to see a tussle between Bangor team as it now stands and the A. V. First Eleven. I should want odds, if I bet at all. ♦ » • The second team acknowledge themselves clearly beaten, but it must be remembered that they bad been travelling from half-past seven in the morning till noon, and a railway journey ot that length tells terribly on the condition of any team. Still, though defeated, any one could see the grand stuff they were made of. On Tuesday another defeat awaited the repre- sentatives of Aston Villa at the hands of a re- presentative Carnarvon team. Tho way Simmons played was a surprise to the visitors, and elicited the heartiest cheers from the spectators. Bailey distinguished himself in goal, as did R. Jones at half-back. Hughes, of the Colts, entirely justi- fied the confidence of the committee, and Stewart, of the same club, played a remarkably good game. R. P. Williams and Howe also played well, Wil- liams displaying perfect form. Owen, of the Heroes, did not get much to do, Simmons doing all the work on that wing. All the team, in fact, may be eaid to have played well. The visitors were clearly suffering from the tremendous exer- tions of the previous day, but thouga desperately fagged played up to the end, pressing the home team va;y hard. They ougbt to have scored oftener than they did, but the defence was very good. The general opinion is that the Birming- ham people had better send their first eleven down to see what we can do with them. Mr Whiskin, the Colts' secretary, I believe, is already corres ponding to that end. Et AVANT.
j DENBIGHSHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS. I These sessions were held at Denbigh on Thurs- day and Saturday last, the intervening day being Good Friday, un Thursday the following magis- trates were present :-Oapt Griffiths Boscawen (chairman), Major C. W. West, lord-lieutenant of the county; Right Hon. G. Osborne Morgan, M.P, J. F. Jesse, Esq C. S. Mainwaring, O. S. Wynne, Esq., H. R. Hughes, Esq., P. H. Chambres, EEq., W. Kin, Esq., A.

Peel, Esq., Dr B. Williams, Thomas Chelton, Esq., A. Barker, Esq, &c. VOTR OF SYMPATHY WITH THE QUBBN AND THE DUCHKSS OF ALBANY. Major West moved a vote of condolence with the Queen and the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Albany, and all the royal family on the loss they had sustained by the death of the Duke of Albany. The mover spoke of the public and private virtues of the late Duke, and said that what he had to say of him was from personal knowledge of him. They had only just discovered the capabilities of the Prince for private work. His delicate health did not prevent him from acquiring a large store of knowledge. They had lost him just as his public life was commencing. He was dearly beloved by all whp knew him in private life, and his death will be greatly mourned, not only by the Queen and the other members of the royal household, but also by all those who ever came to know his worth.—The Right Hon. G. Osbotne Morgan seconded ta6 motion, which was unanimously car- ried. LETTER FROM MRS MAINWARING. A letter was read from Mrs Maiawaring thank- ing the court for the expression of sympathy which they had shown towards.her in her bereavement. SHREWSBURY AND HOLYHEAD ROAD. Those who had been appointed to act on the joint committee of the road had no report to pre- sent, but the chairman and Capt Best said that the Government had offered J650 per mile to put the road in repair. The Denbighshire representa- tives on the committee recommended that the offer of the Government be accepted, as it was understood this was the maximum that would be offered. Captain Best said he had not been able to attend the last committee. He was against bringing the matter before a select committee of the House of Commons. The other counties were in favour of petitioning ^Parliament for leave to call the road a county road. He was against that, as it I would only create another highway authority.—MrG. Osborne Morgan said from wtiat he understood from Mr Shaw Lefevere no further grant than the £ 50 would be made.— Major West proposed that the Govern- ment offer of £ 50 be accepted. This was seconded by Captain Best, and carried. Copies of the resolution will be sent to the clerks of the peace of the other counties interested in the matter. FINANCE COMMITTEE. The committee! had had no time to prepare a report, but had with a few exceptions passed.,the county surveyor's report. One exception was that the sum of £ 110 be spent on Denbigh Town Hall. JTHB CENTRAL POLICE COMMITTEE. This committee had decided that six powerfu telescopes be provided for the police as an experiment, the cost not to exceed £ 10. HIGHWAY AND LOCOMOTIVE ACT. Mr Sweetenham had given notice that he intended to call attention to the fact that the above act was not put in force with regard to waggons and carts using the roads. In Mr Swetenham's rabsence the Rev the Warden introduced the matter at the request of the former. He said he had no special knowledge oi the matter, but understand that Mr Sweetenham intended to move that the matter be taken up by the police. As Mr Sweetenham was unable to be present, he moved that they should do this when practicable. Captain Best'seconded the motion, which was carried. THE JUSTICE'S CLERK AT RUTHIN. A long discussion took place with regard to the above, Mr Adams being holder of the office of clerk of the peace and clerk to the justice, and it was finally decided that the county should take no action IN the matter. THE DEB BRIDGE. This subject was deferred until the bill now before Parliament should be passed. DBNBIGH GRAMMAR SCHOOL. Mr Mainwaring was re-elected governor of the the above school, as representative of quarter sessions. CHIEF CONSTABLE'S REPORT. In this report it was stated that the number of indictable offences committed during the quarter was 16; corresponding quarter, 20; apprehended, 18, against 14; discharged 1, against 3 commit- ted for trial 16, against 11.

They were now all recovered, and there was not a single case in the county. Sheep scab bad been reported from 64 farms. TBIA.L OF PRISONERS. The court was opened for trial of prisoners on Saturday last before Mr B. T. Griffith, Boa. cawen (chairman), Mr P. H. Chambres, Dr Turnour, Lieut.-Col. Hughes, Rev the Warden of Ruthin, Major W. 0. West, Col Humber- stone, Major Meshair., Capt Cole, and Mr J. F. Jesse, &c. CHARGE TO THE GRAND JURY. The grand jury, the foreman of whom was Mr R. D. Hughes, chemist, Denbigh, having been called and sworn, the chairman proceeded to ad- dress them, and said:—There are nine prisoners, the cases of most of whom will not take much of your time. It is not necessary that you should go iullv into the details of the cases, ail you-need be satisfied upon is that there is sufficient prima faoie evidence to bring in a true bill. I mention this because there is, some times, a misapprehen- sion in the minds of grand juries with regard to it, AND HS to what their duties really were. The chairman, then referred to each of the cases indi- vidually, and after making a few remarks upon each, dismissed the grand jury to their work. APPEAL CASE. Wm. Parry Jones, Nant Farm, St. George, who having some time ago been sentenced to two calendar months; by the Abergele bench, for night poaching, entered an appeal to the quarter sessions against the decision of the bench, and was let out on bail-two sureties in £ 30 each, pending the hearing of the appeal. The appeal was to be heard at the present court, but the appellant had absconded to America, and consequently the recognizances were called upon to pajr the money.—Mr Higgins, who appeared for the recognizances, appealed to the bench to reduce the amount, but^Mr Marshall, who appeared for the respondents, opposed the application, and said that it was through the sureties that the appellant WM eoabled to escape punishment.—Mr Higgins said there was no evidence that THE sureties were privv to his going away.—The Chairman, address- ing Mr Higgings, said the sense of the bench was against the application, and. therefore the sureties would have to pay the money. The appeal was then dismissed with costs. OBTAINING GOODS UNDER FALSE PRETENCES. OBTAINING GOODS UNDER FALSE PRETENCES. Catherine Ellen Jones, Tan-y-Iron, ESlwls-1ach, I surrendered to her biil to answer a charge of un- lawfully and by certain false pretences obtaining from William Simon Williams, London House, Llanrwst. one doliman, one jacket, one fnr cape, and one pair of gloves, together valued at J62 58 Id, with intent to cheat and defraud the said William Simon Williams, on 23rd November, 1883.—Mr Higgings, instructed by Mr Hammond, appeared for the prosecution, and Mr Marshall, instructed by Mr Griffiths, appeared for the defence. The first witness called was Catherine Mary Williams, who said she was serving in the shop of the prose- cutor on the day in question. The prisoner came to the shop and asked for a jacket and a cape. After that she asked for a doliman, and after the witness brought tnena downstairs she asked for a pair of gloves. She gave the name of M ES Jones, Cefn Shircam, Carnarvonshire. She said she wanted the goods on approbation for her mother, and would return them on the following Monday. The witness enteted them in the approbation book which was now produced, after which she read the entry to the piisoner.—Cross EXAMINED SHE could not say how many entries were made that day There were a good many people in the town, because Richard Owen, the revivalist, happened to be preaching there. There were eleven assistants in the shop, and entries were made by them all in the same bock. At the time she served the prisoner there was no one else in the room. It was between four and five o'clock in the afternoon. Witness did not kuow how long the prisoner had been waiting ia the show-room before she came there. She first asked for a jacket and a cape. When witness told her the price, she did not consider it too much. She then asked for a doliman, and witness having brought the gGods downstairs. She asked for a pair of gloves. Witness asked her for her address and wrote it down. She was quite sure the articles were those produced, but was not quite sure about the cape.—Wm. Simou Williams said he kept the London House, Lian rwst, and the articles produced were his property, but he could not swear as to tue cape. The letter produced was written by his clerk (Mr Marshall objected to the latter being put ia on the ground that the prisoner had never seen it. He would not object to the envelope being put in. Mr Higgings said he would nut press it.) Examination continued: The letter was addressed, Miss Jones, Oefn Shircam, Tal-y-bont, via Conway," and was returned to him with 2d to pay on it. Atter that he caused a warrant to be issued for the apprehension of the prisoner.- Oross exdmined He himself gave the letter to be posted along with others. The book with the entry in was produced before the magis- trates.—Jane Jones said she lived at Cefn Shir- cam. The prisoner was not her daughter, neither did she live with her. The witness received the letter produced, and knowing nothing about what it related to she returned it accompanied by a letter. The name of the place where she lived was Oefn Alica, and not Cefn Shircam.—Superintendent Hammond said he apprehended the prisoner at Tan-y-fron, Eglwya-fach. He charged her with obtaining the goods from London House, Llanrwst, tinder false pretences, and she said she was never there. Subsequently she went upstairs, followed by the witness, and produced the goods from a box, and after doing so she said, "These are them."—Cross-examined: The search-warrant was never put in his hand.-Re. examined: The articles produced were those given him by the prisoner.—This was all the evidence taken, and Mr Marshall contended there was no case to go before the jury. It had not been hinted once that the goods were given to her on the STRENGTH of the address, and his learned friend had not given a simple question on the point. If he had done so, he (Mr Marshall) would have erosj-examined the witnesses with regard to it, and asked why the goods should have been given because she had given the address. The prosecutor seemed to have known nothing about the address.-The chairman said he thought there was sufficient evidence for the case to go before the jury, but he would make a note of the objection.—Mr Higgins, in addres- sing the jury for the prosecution, said it was per- fectly clear that the prisoner had given a false address, and when she was apprehended she did not at all act like an innocent person. Instead of saying Yes, I got the goods to show my mother," she said I was not there."—Mr Marshall,tor tha defence, said he hoped and trusted the jury would not couvict, the piisoner of the very serious charge brought against fier, unless they were perfectly satisfied in their minds that she was guilty. He believed that when they would come to consider the circumstances of the case iu their true light, that sue was not guilty of the charge brought against her by the prosecution.—The learned counsel then recapitulated the evidence, said there was nothing to show that they knew in the shop where Cae Shircam was, and yet they departed with their goods as soon as the name was given to them, as i, there was some magic in it. The pro- ceeedings was not intelligible nor business-like Was it not reasonable to believe that Mr Williams and Mios Williams parted with their goods be- cause they believed they would be peid for in the usual course, and there was nothing to show but this would have been done had her mother not been taken ill.—The chairman in summing up said that the two points for the jury to decide upon were, whether the goods were obtained under false pretences, and whether there was an dt. u -apt on the part of the prisoner to defraud. He went over the evidence, and referred to some points which, to his mind, clearly showed that the goods were obtained under false pretences.—The jury considered their verdict and brought the prisoner guilty. She was sentenced to one calendar month's imprisonment with hard labour.—Mr Marshall asked the the consent of the bench to make an appeal on the point which he had raised. Subsequently the chairman said the court was willing to accept recognizances, herself in £ 50, and two others in JE25. that she would appear as soon as the point raised by the counsel would have been decided. This was accordingly done and the prisoner discharged. BMBEZZLEMBKT. John Dunston, a writing clerk, was charged with stealing and embezzling J610 183 on June 13th, 1883 j627 38 on August 31st, 1883 and S4 So 6d on November 20th, 1883, money belonging to his employer, James Coster Edwards, Llan- gollen. The prisoner pleaded guilty to all the charges, and said he had no dishonest intentions towards Mr Edwards. Being in temporary difficulty he made use of the money to meet his own exigencies with a full intention to refund it. There were no previous convictions, and he was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment with hard labour. BREAKING INTO A SHOP. Peter Williams and Joseph Lloyd, aged 16 and 12 respectively, were charged with feloniously breaking and entering on April 2nd, the shop of one Benjamin Davies, and stealing therefrom, two pairs of braces, two loaves, six ounces of tobacco, eix boxes of matches, one neckerchief, one pound of cheese, and five.pence in coppers, property of the said Benjamin Davies. Both prisoners pleaded guilty. Mr Edwards, who appeared for the prisoner Joseph Lloyd, addressed the bench for mitigation of punishment.
