FOOTBALL. NOETH WALET COAST CUP. LLANDUDNO V. HOLYWELL. [lij JEii Avant J. This semi-ilual tie in the above competition was played on neutral ground at Bangor, in glorious weather. EX AV.NT, mindful of his duties to the football lcvmg public, rose in his might from a bed of sickness and supported by three or four enthusiastic admirers, crept wearily to the field of action, tut in spite of the unanimous desire of the crowd, he did not play, but simply watched whnt was going on. And this is what he saw. A crowd of about 1,500 people; eleven young fellows clad in newly washed red jerseys; another eleven your g fellows clad in newly washed white jerseys; a new ball, lying calmly in the middle of the field, ever which the .Referee, Mr Pryee Smith, Ic-pt watch and ward for about 20 minutes, ai.d two linesmen. The names of the youths clad in -vhite and red jerseys were respectively as follows:— j LLANDUDNO. Hill. W Hashes F Jones J Roberts W Hughes E Hughes Webbe H Williams Hedley Bevan Allman Davies o Giliman J William* J 1,1 Williams G Jones W Owen B Jones Ivor Williams W 0 Jones J Jones Tom Edwards ) H T Hughes HOLYWELL. Never hps the Bangor team itself received such a roaring send ff as did the Holywell lot when the referee skillfully blew his whistle, announcing that the set time for the commencement of hostili- ties had come, and when Ivor "Williams was seen I to drive the forward iushicg front rank of the Swifts back that inspiriting roar was renewed, and nerved the Holywell men to a dash for the Swift's goal. J. LI. passed prettily to J. Williams, and in the attempt to stop the rush,J.Robefts handled, and in the first minute of the game, the Holywell men had a iree kick close up. J. Jones put the oau dead into the goal mouth, but there was no Bangor-like tush, and Will Hughes calmly punted clear. Tremendous and continuous cheer- ing greeted every effort of the men from Holywell and hearty jeers of th", Swifts, but the effect on either side was to all intents and purposes nil, and G. Jones getting the ball in a good position, after a bit of do-g;np, passed gracefully to Fred Jones who, without staying to express his gratitude for this bit of hospitality, sent the ball to the other half of the field. From this, H. Williams got the ball and gave to Bevan who suddenly darted off full speed. He was promptly met by J. Jones who kicked the ball simultaneously with the Swift's centte, but the ball darted towards the Holywell goal, end Bevan instantly seizing the situation, flew off thitherwards with it at his toes. Hughes took in the position of affairs at a glanc?, and rushed out of his goal a long way, and was fortunate in getting at the ball a shade before Bevan and the danger was averted, and then Davies shot behind. The goal kick did little to benefit the Holywell men, for a pass back by Willy Hughes to Will Hughes was returned by the latter far up tie field where Webbe centered I weu, and levies, lying as usual close up, tested Hughes with a warm one which he get rid of smartly. Davies got in another in a. second, aad Edwards headed this out, bit only sent it to Allman, who got in a superb shot which landed the ball on the cet. Holywell then broke away, and sent in some weakly shots, but the Swifts backs were quite safe enough for these attacks and repelled them easily. The Swifts were doing the most pressing, but suddenly Ivor Wil- liams got the ball in the middle of his own half, and touching it gently on to Gordon Jones, the Holywell flier put in one of his express runs, right the length of the field. No- body could stop him, and he might very well have run straight into goal, but instead of that, he passed to Oweu at the finish, and Owen shot be- hind. J. lil. got the goal kick, and banged the bell dead in, but Hill cleared well just as he was heavily charged by Giliman. Bolywell were now pressing, and J. Ll. at once returned Hill's clear- ance, and it was got rid of by Will Hughes, and then one of Bevan's rushes carried the war to the other end where a desperate attack was desper- ately met and finally repulsed, and Holywell got a free kick at the other end of the field, and this being sent to Gordon Jones, he hesitated a moment and then shot in dead. Hill stooped and licked apthe ball, but dropped it again, but before he was charged, he picked it up again and threw clear. This was the sort of thing that went on daring the first fifteen minutes of the game, the Swifts, in spite of the evident bias of the crowd, having considerably the best of the game. At the end of the period named, the hwifts got a. throw out, and trom this the ball was sent to- wards the Holywell goal with Bevan full speed after it. Edwards went at it, but though he touched it, the ball skirled back towards his goal, and Bevan renewed the pursuit with redoubled energy, and crossed the ball to the other side of the field. Allman punched it back straight and hard into the goal, but Hughes got his foot to it, and for an instart kept it out of goal, but Bevan had followed hard alter it, and meeting the re- bound, he banged it safely into the net. Three hundred and fifty Llandudno voices greeted the achievement, and anncunced the score to be- LLANDTTHNO, 1 GOAL; HOLYWELL, 0. Buddenly darting off with the ball Gordon Jones and Owen beat Fred Jones, and Owen shot well into goal. Hill cleared somehow, and then J. LI. banged the ball back into an empty goal. Will Hughes turned up from somewhere, and sent the ball flying straight up in the air, and there was a rush, bat the ball did not come down where it was expected, but dropped peacefully behind the goal. The corner kick dropped the ball in the goal mouth, but with a terrific sweep of his arm, Hill swept it far up the field, and the next moment it was sent behind. J. Roberts soon afterwards tripped Gillman, and the free kick was splendidly put in by R. Jones, but Ned Hughes headed out of the goal mouth, and an attack on the Holywell goal was commenced. There was a spell of wild kicking by the Holywell backs, and then, six minutes after the first goal had been scored, H. Williams darted into the ruck and got the ball right in front ofgoa;. He shot as he was turning round and the call sped straight for the mark. Hughes got it all right, but dropped it, and it passed clear over the fatal line and into the net. I LLANDUDNO, 2 GOALS; HOLYWELL, 0. There was no more scoring before half time, but the Holywell lot ought to have at least drawn level if not got ahead for their front rank got many chances, and some slackness becoming ap- parent in the play of the Swifts, the Holywelliang had as a matter of fact more of the play than their opponents. However, HALF TIME came with the sene still reading :— LLA.-mrDNo, 2 GOALS ;^HOLYWELL, 0. The first fifteen minutes of the second half were chiefly taken up by assaults on the Swifts' goal, but though several gocd shots w^re sent in, there really was never any serious danger of the Holy- well men scoring, and suddenly, Webbe got hold of the ball in the middle of the field, and though several times atsauecl roughly, he stoatly stuck to his prize, and bartering his way through all op- position, he finally got in a good centre and Bevan darting at the ball fairly headed it off the goal- keeper's hands right into the net. XLASDRP^O, 3 GOALS HOLYWELL, 0. The Swifts then put on seme pressure, but some n'ca passing between the Holywell centre and Gordon Jones carried play to the other end of the field and this being continued, Fred Jones was j clean beaten and Owen ran into the corner while j Goidon ran into the goal mouth. Owen did his share of the subsequent business all right, and dropped the bill right in the goal mouth where Gordon and one or two of his mates were waiting for it, but the splendid chance was missed, and the only outcome of a promising bit of play was a corner, which was placed against the side of tne net. The pressure on the Llandudno goal was then resumed for some time, and for the next twenty minutes was unequally divided. three parts of it being in the Swifts' half; of the field, and the pother part in the Holywell goal. The Swifts were by far the most dangerous when they got up, and at the end of the time mentioned, they fought their way out of their own hali into the middle of the Holywell half, and here J. Roberts sent in a long shot along the ground which passed straight into the Holy- well net, disgracefully beating Hughes. LLANDUDNO, 4 GOALS; HOLYWELL, 0. !In less than a minute from the restart Hughes got a terific shot from someon# which he did well to puc over the bar. Ned Hughes put the corner in perfectly, but J. Jones headed out under the bar. and then J. Roberts forced another corner off the Holywell men and this Allman headed over. Gordon Jones handled the goalkick, and Fred Jones placed the freekick over to Webbe, who in- stantly headed it into goal. J- Jones at once fisted it out, and fisted it out, and A FFXALTY KICK II was at once claimed and awarded, Fred Jones took charge of this, and Hughes came out to the 6 yards line to deal with it. Fred, however, gave him no chance to do so but swept the ground with a diagonal shot which tore along past Hughes and landed the ball into the far corner of the net. LLAXDUDNO, 5 GOALS; HOLYWELL, 0. Holywell were now a hopelessly beaten team, but the crowd badly wanted to isee them scoring a goal before the game ended, and gave them ua- limited encouragement and once they did get up to the other end and Giliman spanked in a beauty which Fred Jones headed out right under the bar, but they never seriously menaced the Swifts' citadel, and when the whistle sounded the cease firing the Swifts were on the point of getting another goal by the looks of things. However, the FINAL RESULT ¡ was LLANDTJDXO, 5 GOALS; HOLYWELL, 0.

There was this difference, that the last named was a semi-final cup tie, and the other a league match. In other respects the games were singularly alike. To begin with, there could be no two opinions as to which was the actuallysuperiorteam on each oc- c asion. I mean to saythat if you had taken a census of the crowd, the general verdict would have been that Bangor in the one case, and Llandudno in the other, was undoubtedly the superior team, both as a matter of fact, and, on the day's play, faking I it all round. And yet anyone who saw the two games will easily remember that the play ran in such a way in each of the games now under con- sideration that victory might very easily have rested with the other side. One of the most pronounced resemblances be- tween the two games was the result in each case, the winners in each match scoiing five goals, while the losers each failed to put on a single goal. But the most striking resemblance is to be found in the general run of the play at each match. Last Saturday, in the first half, the Swifts undoubtedly had the most of the game, but not by much. In the second half, what is called mcst of the game" was had by the Holywell team, and for a solid twenty minutes in that half j the Swifts, do what they would, could not get out ef their own half. This was not because Holywell had put on any miracu. lous style of play, for they did not seem to exert themselves very much. What the reason for this spell of helplessness on the part of the Swifts was I do not know, but it might very easily have led to disaster, and had the team then j opposed to the Swifts been Bangor, disaster would j have followed as certainly as effect follows cause, j But such a chance in the hands of the Holywell men only led to a few good shots at Hill, which he cleared well, and a few more shots over the bar or by the posts. Do what they would, the Swifts could not get out of their own half, but on the j other hand Holywell, though they managed some-' how to pen Llandudno in in this way, could not score. The game looked lively at this stage, and provided the crowd with a good excuse to get off some of their exuberant verbosity in the shape of I vigorous cheers for the Holywell men, but it was all froth, and there was no real body of excite- ment in the whole bout, for the Holywellians had not the dash of a kitten in front of goal, and though the defenders had a lot to do, they had very.little difficulty ia doing it. The fact is, the Holy wellimen played too gentle- manly a game by a long way. Gentlemanly is not the right word in this connection either, but the meaning is, that they had not enough life, spirit, or energy in them, or at any rate did not show it in their play, to force a goal against any sort of a resistance. Had the Swifts' backs been ( good enough to stand still, and had Hill been equally good natured, I have little doubt that Holywell would have scored four or five goals if Bot six. But the slightest opposition sufficed to upset their best laid schemes, and daunt their most ferocious essays at rushing the Swifts' goal. Great expectations were raised among the crowd when it was seen that Gordon Jones was playing for Holywell, and with reason, for Gordon Jones J can play a good game, and as a matter of fact, up tc a certain point, he played a good game on I Saturday, but pulling np where he did, he vitiated all his preceding efforts, and also demoralised that j of the rest of his team. I must go into this matter a little to make it quite plain to my reader-s. I daresay that some of my readers will remember a paragraph in these notes last season, 0" the season before, in which I spoke of the Holywell team as a team of very gentlemanly players, and attributed this to the example of their captain, Mr Gordon Jones. I am not in the least going back on what I said then, but I wish to say now that judging from the show made by the team on satuiday last against the Swifts, I am incliued to thiLk that this sort of thing has been carried on too far, and that in fact, the Holywellians play a much too milk-aud-watery game to win, especially in a Cup Tie. A little more devil and a little less finicking would have won the game for Holywell last Saturday, for they had far more chances to I score than were required, to wipe off all the adverse balance, and all that was needed to convert those chances was just a dash of what I have endeavoured to expiess. Very little was needed, for during the time I am more especially considering, as well as during other parts of the game, the defence of the I Swifts, while putting a brave show on the business, was in reality exceedingly rocky, and a very slight rush would have carried it off its* feet, and resulted I in goals for the other side. t But Gordon Jones' training of his team has carried them far beyond this sort of work, and he himself carried the principle he evidently wishes to inculcate to an extreme, for over and over again, when he got the ball, and was getting ready for one of his sprints, if one of the other side managed to get it off him Gordon gave up the struggle at once, and smilingly stood still while :he other fellow was making away with the ball, or let one of his own side have a fight for it. But fight for o cl it himself, Gordon would not to any extent, and it is no wondar therefore that the fighting spirit was knocked considerably out of his men, and the conqTering impulse out of their attacks. This was the thing which vitiated and emasculated the whole of the play of the Holywellians. and this it was which enabled the Swifts to get home without a single goal being scored against them. Mind you, I am sure the Swifts would have won had Holywell stretched themselves to the utmost of tht-ir present capacity, but it would have only been by an odd goal, and even as it resulted, the actual play did not go to show more than that. The Holywell goalkeeper was not a success, and their backs were feeble kickers. Their best men were R. Jones, the left half, and Owen and Gillman. But R. Jones is their goalkeeper really, and was out of his place in consequence of Gallagher's failure at the last moment to tarn up. Ivor Williams is a weak man to play at all and is soon knocked up, but while he does play, he plays well; the mishief is that he can only keep it up in a spasmodic manner. J.LL, also did some pretty things in the way of passing in conjunction with Gordon Jones, but he has evidently thoroughly imbibed Gordon Jones' theory as to how football should be played, and consequently J when the moment for the final effort came, he like I his mates was found wanting. The Swifts were in very good trim, and played J a game to win all through. Their forwards un- f doubtedly won it for them. Of course, someone will say, they always do. That is right enough, but in this case the backs deserve very little credit for the winniug of the game, for most if not all of the goals scored by the Swifts' forwaids were got not out of chances directly created by the for- wards. Nothbly that fice goal resulting from the sudden interposition of the siege of the Swifts' I goal by Webbe, and his doddged forcing or tue ball up the touchline till he got within centreing range, when he centred, and Bevan rushing I headlong in, headed the ball clean off Hughes' I hands into the net. The Swifts' forward line was the best part of the team, and if they can play like that against Bangor in the Final they won't j be far out of it at the end of the game, But of I course they will have a different sort of defence to contend against, and the test of their merit will be in their successful maintenance of Saturday's freedom of movement and dash through the whole of the game. If they can do that, they will give William more to do than be has recently had, and provide the spectators with real good sport, I really must not individualise in the case ot the Swifts' forwards, for they were all so good that it would hardly be fair to name ove man and not another. Ned Hughes was a little only the best of the Swifts' halfs for J. Roberts is fast coming out as a champion in this position, and that shut with which he scored the Swifts' fourth goal was a good one. Willy Hughes, Ned Hughes' brother improves every time I see him, and though he was several times beaten by the tactics of his oppon- ents on Saturday, he did a lot of good things. But I forgot to say that Roberts is foolishly in- clined to play a dirty game at times. This is a pity, as dirty play does not pay in the long run, and seldom, now-a-days, in the short run either. Fred and Will Hughes got out of the game with- out any serious damage to their reputation hut certainly with no addition to it, for the way in which at times, the namby-pamby style of play adopted by the Holywellians puzzled them \Vas i by no means to their credit. What do you think of the chances of Bangor in the final ? a young fellow asked me after the game was over. Well, I thiok both Bangor and Llandudno will play a far better game than they have either of them done in their last matches, but I fancy the City boys will again pull off the Cup. If they don't, it will be a downfall indeed, for then all three Cups will have departed from the town. However, we sha-1 see w be the game is played. When it is over, I shall in a position to give you more definite information on the point.
CARNARVONSHIRE AND THE DIAMOND JUBILEE. COUNTY MEETING AT CARNARVON. At the invitation of the Lord Lieutenant of Carnarvonshire (Mr J. E. Greaves), and the Mayors of Bangor, Carnarvon, Conway and Pwii- heii, a county meeting took place on Friday at Carnarvon, to decide what should be done in the county to commemorate Jie completion of the 60th year of the Queen's reign. The cuair was occupied by the Lord-Lieutenant (Mr J. E. Greaves). Amongst those present were the Bishop of Bangor, Sir Llewelyn and Lady Turner, the Mayor of Car- narvon (Mr E. Hughes), the Mayor of Pwllheli (Captain D. Williams), the Mayor of Bangor (Dr Grey Edwards), Messrs D. P. Williams (chairman of the County Governing Body), W. A. Darbishire, ¡ H. Kneeshaw, 'Robert Thomas (chairman of the County Council), Albert Wood, the Hon. H. Lloyd Mostyn, E. Jones, Drs J. Williams, Mills Roberts, R. Parry, Mr J. Menzies, Mr J. Hughes, &c. betters of apology for non-atterdar ce were read, e,Y among others from Lord and Lady Penrhyn, who expressed their great sympathy with the move- ment, and enclosed a cheque for X200 towards the fund (cheers). From Sir Owen Roberts, enclosing £ 25 Colonel Wynne Finch, enclosing JE20 and the Mayor of Oonway, who stated that a meeting held at Conway had subscribed £ 10 to the fund. The Lord Lieutenant, in opening the proceed- ings, stid that the meeting had been convened by the Mayors of Carnarvon, Bangor, Conway, and Pwllheli, in conjunction with himself, to consider a proposal which had bsen made thpt the county of Carnarvon should unite in commemorating Her Majesty's long and glorious reign. Not only in that county, not only in the British Isles, but throughout the world-wide Empire had a spon- taneous desire arisen to give expression to the loyalty and attachment to the Queen (cheers). To the great majority of her subjects the Queen existed merely as a name—a came, it was true, of almost ideal beneficence and power, but still only as a name; and yet they were vieing with one an- other in their expressions of loyalty and devotion and in their determination to adequately com- memorate the great event of that year, namely, the completion of the sixtieth year of her reign (cheers). How much more then ought they, the inhabitants of this countryi to commemorate, in a manner worthy of the nation, this remarkable and unique event in English history; they to whom the Queen was no mere abstract idea, but as a living reality and personality in their midst; they who recognised and felt the great influence which she had exercised upon society at large. They did, indeed, owe their revered Queen a deep debt of gratitude for the example she had set in domestic as well as public life—(hear, hcar)-and f <?r having during the long period of 60 years so directed the destinies of the nation that her em- pire stands forth to-day the admiration and envy of all the world (cheers) How could they properly express thei* gratitude ? How could they best commemorater that great event P How could they erect a monument which should be at once ptrmanent in its character, naeional in its importance, wide- spread in its influence, and above all phasing to to their aged Queen r (cheers). Her Majesty had herself shown how they could do so. Tea years ago, when the fiftieth year of her reign was celebrated throughout, the land, she devoted £ 70,000, the gift of the women of England, to the founding of the Jubilee Institute for Nurses. She then graciously pointed out that the monument she most desired was in the shape of a permanent institution which should bring relief and succour in times of sickness and distress to the poorest of her subjects throughout the length and breadth of I the Lnd (cheers). Surely, such a monument would be far more durable, far more noble and, perfect in all its parts than anything hewn stone could ever be- (hear, hear)-a monument wnich should for all times cause a grateful people to I bless the name of Queen Victoria (cheers). They heard a great deal ot hospitals being established in various parts of the country in commemoration of this year. Now hospitals had done, and were doing, noble and most necessary work, but hos- pitals could not be established everywhere. One of the great merits of the Qaeen's scheme was that it eould be applied throughout the United King- I dom everywhere, and that it possessed the capa- bility of bringing succour and relief to the sufferers at their own homes everywhere, in towns or country (hear, hear). He would remind his bearers that that scheme had been origiuated by I' the Queen herself. It was a work that had already proved its titness, and which had far out-grown the resources at preseut at the command of the Council of the institution. It was then to advocate and to accentuate the claims of that institution that they were assembled there that day. It was an instution, which, he ventured to submit, had fulfilled all the conditions he had mentioned, and he earnestly commeuded its claims to the generosity of the country in general and especially to that of the inhabitants of the county (hear, hear). The Victorian era. had been reujark- able for many things. It had witnessed extra- ordinary achievements in science, art, and rtanu- facture. The numbers and prosperity of the people had advanced by leaps and bounds. But, perhaps the most remarkable of allawas the growth of kindly pity and sympathy with human suffering and distress, which nad now become such a marked characteristic of their nation (cheers). In this their Queen had set a most notable and noble example, and he thought they should gratefully acknowledge the kindly interest and sympathy she had always shown towards her subjects, and her tender soliditude in times of sickness and distress.. Let them as a nation unite in honouring their good and gracious Queen by placing this noble menu- ment of her charity upon a firm foundation (cheers). Sir Llewelyn Turner proposed-" That the county and boroughs of Carnarvonshire desire to commemorate the 60th year of her Majesty's reign." He said that sixty-five years ago, in the month of June, 1832, he was walking up the slope leading to the Uxbridge Arms Hotel, at Carnar- von, now called the Royal, and about half-way up near the plantation wall on the right of the ascent, he met a plainly-attired little girl a few years older than himself, who was followed a little later i by some ladies and gentlemen, who came out of the hotel; and was informed that the little girl was the Princess Victoria, the future Queen of England, and one of the ladies was her mother the Duchess of Kent. The party were staying at Plas Newydd, the seat of the noble Marquis of Anglesey, whose splendid cavalry charge at I Z! Waterloo was of too recent date to be forgotten, and the Royal party came down in a large cutter yacht for several days, making sketches ot Car- narvon, which had not then suffered by the ter- rible disfigurement, which ought to be a warning to local legislators unacquainted with scientific studies (hear, hear). On the 28th of June, 1838, he witnessed the great rejoicing on the coronation of her Majesty, t. ho bad then proclaimed Queen in June of the previous year, 1837. Duringthe 60 years that had elapsed since,the Queen ascended the throne, what important changes had taken place—changes pregnant with benefit to mankind in general, and to these realms in particular (hear, hear). He knew that it too often happened that when people had been enabled to look back many years they were apt to lament the things of the past as being better than the present. There was in this country a vast amount, and, he thought, a regrettable amount, of political asperity-he spoke j of both political parties —and unfortunate^ from timo to time things were said and done by both sides which were very much to be deplored. What j a blessing it was that there was somebody on the throne that when Ministers for the time being approached her party politics were hue;bed. Justice was done, and the great and noble f Queen was able to calm down those asperities which otherwise might lead to convulsions. He considered it was a great privilege to be pre- sent that day on such an occasion; and as to the manner suggested of commemorating the sixtieth anniversary of Her Majesty's reign he would only I say that it was a nvark of her greatness, goodness, and kindness. It was also a mark that she her- self had designed, namely, a system of nursing that would be beneficial to all. He wished to allude to the great good that had been done by that angel of mercy that they had in this part of the country, Lady Penrhyn—(cheers)—who in this as well as in other matters had set an example of kindness and goodness which they might follow (hear, hear). What man who had taken an interest I in public life could fail to thank God for that over- whelmingly great improvements that had taken place in the lot of the people ? What man who I

was acquainted with ancient and modern history could fail to appreciate the glorious spread of civil and religious liberty, could fail to see the good arising from the better housing of the people, the infinite amelioration of the lot of mankind, in the education which dissipated ancient superstitions and turned the v,"heels of progress (cheers) ? The Mayor of Carnarvon, in seconding the pro- posal, said that it had been asked what Carnarvon was going to do to commemorate the great event of the year. Many, no doubt,3Vere waiting to see what form the memorial would take, "ud were quite prepared to do their "hard in anything that might be decided upon. He had received letters promising support to the scheme already suggested and ha thought- it was impossible to do anything better towards commemorating Her Majesty's reign than to strengthen the Jubilee Institute, which had already done so much good (cheers). He did not think Carnarvon would be rlhort of doing its part worthily in this matter. Not only 'did they want assistance from those who gave their hundreds but also from those who gave their mites, and these small contributions would be acceptable by their noble Queen if given in the right spirit (cheers). Mr R. Thomas (chairman of the Carnarvon County Council) supported the motion, which was agreed to. The Bishop of Bangor proposed-" That the commemoration of the 60th year of the Queen's reign shall, in this country, take the form of strengthening the commemoration fund on behalf of the Qaeen's Jubilee Institute for Nurses." His Lordship, in proposing that resolution, said that it needed very few words from him to press home that duty of pleasure upon the inhabitants of the county of Carnarvon, and he hoped they as loyal subjects in that part oi the country would do every- thing taey couia to carry out tnat resolution in a practical manner (hear, hear). They differed in that country upon many subjects, but there was one topic upon which, he was certain, they were all of one mind—they were unanimoui- in their loyalty to the Queen and in their admiration for her life and character (cheers). She had set a. high and noble example to the lowest as well as the highest of her subjects. They as Welshmen were one in heart and soul upon this matter. As had been said that her reign had been a wonderful one. They would search in vain in the anna Is of their country for a reign of 60 unbroken years, and he thought it would be difficult to find an ex.ict parallel in European history (hear, hear). They would search in vaiu for a reign so dis- tinguished by multifarious activities, so fruitful iu. the growth of the weil-being, happiness, and pros- perity of the great masses of their countrymen, so fruitful in the growth of true freedom and liberty, so marked by religious progress, and by love and affection which Her Majesty's subjects have always shown for her. He doubted, indeed, whether there was an era in the history of the world in which so many blessings had been vouchsafed to mankind as in this reigu in which many of them had been born and during which they bad lived. He be- lieved that the reiga of Queen Victoria would be famous—he would not say most famous in the history of the country, because thev aid not know what was iu store for the race—but he would say it would be famous in the history of the country. It would be famous for its length and for the brilliant discoveries in science and art—discoveries which had facilitated the progress, not only of this country but of the world, and had lifted to a higher plane human society in every part of the globe (cheers). But amongst th-se brilliant discoveries and many other things which marked this age he knew of no more distinctive characteristic than the evolu- tion into promiice oi the humane element in the life ot the nation (hear, hear). It was no wonder that it had grown so rapidly.

It was no exaggeration to say that the es- tablishment 01 the institute had revolutionised the treatment oi the sick and suffering, and if the movement was supported throughout the country by small as well as great offerings, there was no doubt thut in timt* there would be no parish without a trained nurse or nurses. It had been said that it was our duty and obligation to con- tribute. He w ..uld put it in another way, by saying that it was their privilege to co-or erate in that' grand and magnificent movement.
