FESTINIOG BOARD OF GUARDIANS. TUESDAY._Mr J. Jones presiding, and Mr 0. Jones in the vice-chair. FINANCIAL. — During the past fortnight, L236 5s 3d was paid in out-relief, as compared with JB244 during the corresponding period last year • required for the ensuing fortnight, £ 238. Balance at the bank, £ 592 16s 6d. Number of paupers, 919. MEDICAL REPORT.—Dr G. J. Roberts, of Festiniog, stated that he did not vaccinate in his district at present on account of the preva- lence of erysipelas and whooping cough.-The o-uardians agreed that this was the wisest course T0AN EMPLOYER'S LIABILITY.—THE CASE of O. Davies, the man who had been injured while in the service of a Festiniog employer, came on for discussion again.—Mr 0. Jones (the vice-chairman) who had been appointed to in- terview the man's former employer with regard to compensation, reported that the employer did not admit any liability in the matter. Mr Jones thought the man was to blame for neg- lecting to give Mr Owen notice at the proper time.—After some discussion, it was resolved, on the motion of Mr J. P. Roberts, to advance the man a further loan of 8s per week, and to assist him in taking proceedings in connection with his claim for compensation. THE RE-ARRANGEMENT OF OFFICES. -The Local Government Board had written, asking to be supplied with further particulars with reference to the re-arrangement of offices in the union. These details had been forwarded, but the approval of the Local Government Board of the arrangements had not yet come to hand.-The clerk was instructed to advertise in the newspapers when the approval had been received.-A discussion then arose as to the age of candidates for the vacant posts. Some were not satisfied with the decision to limit the age of candidates to 35 years. They contended that the Local Government Board accepted candi- dates up to 45 years of age, and that the voice of the country was also in favour of this.—Mr R. Richards gave notice to bring the matter forward at the next meeting again.
CABNAKVOIN COUNTY PETTY SESSIONS. SATURDAY.—Before D. P. Williams, Esq., R. Roberts, Esq., G. J. Roberts, Esq., and J. Issard Davies, Esc. A BAND OF HOPE ROW.—William Jones, a young man residing at Bwlchvllyn, was sum- moned by David Owen for assault.—Mr J. T. Roberts prosecuted, and Mr Richard Roberts de- fended.-The prosecutor, who said he lived at Cesarea-terrace, Bwlchyllyn, swore that he was a labourer, and that on Friday week he was at a meeting of the Band of Hope, and took part in the proceedings. The defendant was also pre- sent, sitting in a corner, and in witness's opinion he was creating a disturbance. Witness made a few remarks complaining of the behaviour of the defendant, and on the way home the latter came up to him and asked why he had singled him out and mentioned his name in a public meeting in that way. Defendant was evidently in a temper, and struck witness in the face.- The Bench thought the case could be settled without their help, and after a consultation ber tween the parties, the defendant agreed to ap- ologise and to pay the costs. The case was then withdrawn. LARCENY. — Richard Burns, a navvy em- ployed at Portdiriorwic, was charged with steal- ing" a coat, the property of Thomas Kelly.—He was sent to prison for 14 days. THE PUBLIC VACCINATORS.—The Clerk read a letter received from the Local Govern- ment Board, together with an application sent by the vaccinating officers, relative to the fees paid under the new Act. The Local Govern- ment Board did not consider that the fee paid for successful vaccination should depend upon the actual number of miles travelled, and sug- gested a fee of 5s for two miles, 7s 6d for a dis- the actual number of miles travelled, and sug- gested a fee of 5s for two miles, 7s 6d for a dis- I tance over two and under four miles, &c., or a fee of 5s for one parish, 7s 6d for the next, &c. -The committee had met and considered the matter, and they recommended the adoption of the latter suggestion, and that the relieving officers be paid Is 4d and postages. — On the motion of Mr C. A. Jones, the report was adopted. RESIGNATIONS.-The Clerk read the formal I resignations of the master and matron, Miss Ellen E. Jones, and the porter of the work- house.-The Chairman stated that they had I partly expected the resignation of the master and matron, but they had not expected the re- signation of Miss Jones and the porter. They felt very sorry that the parting had come in the case of the master and matron, after a faithful service of 20 years. The guardians were rather anxious about the future, especially when they saw such a great change. He would like to know if they could make any arrangement whereby Miss Jones and the porter could re- main in the service of the board for some time longer.—Mr G. R. Hughes suggested that thev should ask Miss Jones and the porter to with- draw their resignations until such time as the new officials were firmly established.-—Mr W J. Williams said the best thing they could do would be to leave the matter in abeyance. The nurse and schoolmistress were remaining, and he would, therefore, suggest that they should only advertise for a porter.-This was eventually agreed to. J GUARANTEE BONDS.—Mr Richard Jones, I according to notice, called attention to the ne- cessity and importance for all the officials of the union, including the rate collectors, to obtain guarantee bonds from guarantee societies, in- stead of having individual sureties. He pointed out that although a resolution to this effect had been carried some time ago, only a few of the officials had acted upon it. The guardians had suffered loss in the past becausc their officials did not obtain sufficient security, and he knew that several of the guardians present were sure- ties for some of the officials. He thought they should insist upon having their wishes respected in this matter.—Mr W. M. Roberts seconded.- The Chairman remarked that an attempt had been made to get all the officials guaranteed by a society, but several of them had refused to do so, and the guardians could not compel them. Many of them had obtained Anglesey million- aires" as their sureties for sums far exceeding what the guardians required-and persons whom thev could not in any way object to.—A long discussion followed, and it was eventually re- solved that another attempt be made to get the officials' securities from societies.—On the mo- officials' securities from societies.-On the mo- I tion of Mr R. B. Ellis, however, a committee was appointed to reconsider the basis of the amount of security required. TROUBLE WITH VACCINATING.—A re- turn was submitted of the number of children born and vaccinated in the union during 1897 and the first half-year of 1898. During the latter period, 168 were born in Carnarvon dis- trict, of which 16 had not been vaccinated. In Llandwrog, 212 were born, and 121 had escaped in Llanrug, out of 208 born, 26 had not been vaccinated; and in Llanidan, seven out of 46 had not been vaccinated.-The Chairman called the serious attention of the relieving officer of Llandwrog to the state of affairs in his district, and Mr Daniel Thomas said he had no explana- tion to give, except that they would not do it.- The Chairman It is not the conscience clause that accounts for this, but something else. It is your dlty to take them before the justices.— Mr W. J. Williams observed that some of them thought it was the fault of the old vaccinating officer, but now he feared it was something else, for the vaccinating officer had been changed. They ought to push this matter forward, for j there must be something wrong somewhere.— Mr G. R. Hughes asked if there was a crusade against vaccination in the Llandwrog district.— The Chairman No; something else is the cause of it. I PARLIAMENTARY BILLS. — It was re- I solved to ask the members of Parliament for the district to support the bill promoted by the State Children's Association.—A resolution was also passed in favour of a bill giving guardians greater power over children abandoned by their parents, or children which parents failed to bring up properly.-It was also agreed to me- morialise Parliament in favour of a bill prevent- ing the sale of intoxicants to children under 13 years of age.—Wth reference to these bills, Mr W. J- Williams observed that they should have power to compel these parents to work for the guardians, and make a repayment for the care of the children. What was wanted was a new gaol, and this must come before long.—Mr R. B. Ellis agreed, and said that it was a shame that thev should have in the house that day a dozen infants, ranging in age from three months to three vears, whose mothers were in prison, and who had to be kept by the guardians. THE ESTIMATES.—It was estimated that the amount required by the guardians to meet their liabilities for the next half-year would be £ 7'26. t
"GODLESS EDUCATION." I A CLERICAL DIATRIBE. I The Rector of Flint, preaching on Sunday evening from the text Luke xvii., 32, referred to the disobedience of modern Calvinism to the teaching of the old Calvin fathers whose love for and simple exposition of God's Word had, he said, brought around them so many staunch adherents. He attributed the leakage from Calvinism in the present day to the hostility shown by them to religious education in the elementary schools in Wales. The Rector then spoke of the present attack on the National Schools in Flint as having been commenced by a deacon of modern Calvinism. Several news- papers had short paragraphs about the matter, but as they were misleading, he would place a. plain statement before them. A petition had been sent to him, not extensively signed as was reported, but containing only seven names, and of these four were preachers of the Gospel, and not one of the seven was a native of Flint. This, then, was the huge upheaval of Radical Non- conformity in Flint. The Rector thankfully owned that the Baptists had throughout been to a man true cnampions of religious education in their schools, while the Wesleyans, as might have been expected, had acted in accordance with the best traditions of their religious society; and, indeed, the heart of religious Nonconfonnity in the parish had always been beating in unison with the heart of the Church in the desire for bringing up the children of the town in the fear and nurture of the Lord. If there were any political Nonconformists who ob- jected to religious education, there was no need for them to pose as martyrs and parade the streets as if suffering from a severe grievance; they had only to express a wish, and that wish was a command to the managers of the National Schools, and it would be instantly obeyed. How different was the treatment meted out to Churchmen by Welsh political dissent There were manv scores of Board Schools in Wales where the Bible was an unknown book, where the name of God was never uttered, and the hymn of praise and thanksgiving hushed in silence, but if a Churchman expressed to the teacher of one of these schools a wish that his children should be taught the ennobling truths of Jesus and His love, the only answer given— and a cruel one it was—was that such things were not taught there. Evidences of the re- sults of this Godless education were to be seen on every hand in Wales. Some time ago a football eleyen in Glamorganshire made arrange- ments to play in Paris on a Sunday. Several political Nonconformist ministers expressed their horror at such a thing, and said it would be a plot on the Welsh character, and so they asked the eleven not to play on a Sunday, but the footballers snapped their fingers at the reverend gentlemen, and said they would play on a Sunday. In the name of common sense, asked the Rector, how could these political agitators make such a request'! They had ex- pelled the Bible from all the schools under their management, and what other result could be expected? They had sown the wind, thinking thereby to injure the Church, and were now, as a natural consequence, reaping the whirlwind.
HOLYHEAD PETTY SESSIONS. WEDNESDAY. — Before the Rev John Richards (chairman), Hugh Edwards, Esq., T. F. Evans, Esq., Captain W. H. Edwards, W. R. Jones, Esq., J. R. Edwards, Esq., and Captain Kendall. TEMPORARY TRAXSFER. Mr T. R. Evans applied for the transfer of the license of the Spread Eagle Inn from James Felton to Margaret Hughes, an unmarried woman, living at Church-terrace. Mr Evans stated that Hughes's nephew was going to reside on the premises.—The application was granted. DRUNKENNESS. — P.C. W. Falloon charged Arthur Jones, 2, Porthsach-street, Holyhead, with drunkenness. This was de- I fendant's first offence, and he was fined 5s in- cluding costs.—P.C. Falloon also summoned Thomas Williams, Tymawr, Llantrisant, for be- ing drunk on licensed premises. Supt. Jones said that the defendant had been four times be- fore the court during the past 13 months for drunkenness. A fine of 10s and costs was im- posed.—P.C. Owen Hughes charged H. Ed- wards, Thomas-street, with drunkenness. Mr W. Gray Owen gave evidence as to the charge. The case was adjourned to the next court.— P.C. Owen Hughes charged George Thomas, Baker-street, with being drunk and riotous. The defendant, who was described as a "cockle dealer," had been several times up before the I magistrates, was fined 7s 6d and costs.—P.C. Owen Hughes also summoned Henry Jones, a hawker, living at the Mountain, for being drunk and riotous. Mr T. R. Evans appeared for the I defence. The defendant was in his mother's house and assaulted her. His sister went to the police-station and complained of his con- duct, and the police went there and turned him out, and subsequently he was locked up for some hours. A fine of 10s and costs was im- posed. TOO MUCH WATER.—P.S. Hugh Jones summoned Elizabeth Jones, Free Mason's Inn, Holyhead, for adulterating whisky.-—Sergt. H. Jones stated that he visited the house and pur- chased a pint of whisky. After dividing and having tested it by the usual method, it was discovered that the whisky contained 14! per cent. of water more than the allowance by law. —A fine of 2s 6d and costs was imposed. DRUNK AND RIOTOUS.—P.C. H. Wil- liams summoned Ellis Jones, a fish dealer, Baker-street, Holyhead, for being drunk and riotous. Jones had been previously fined for swearing.—Fined 5s and costs. ALLEGED UNLIGHTED CARS.—P.C. Owen Roberts, Aberffraw, sued William Wil- liams, Penhenllyg, Aberffraw, for not having lamps on a spring car at 6.14 p.m. on the 10th ¡ of February. A number of almanacks were pro- duced, most of which were declared wrong as to the time of lighting up.—The case was dis- missed with a caution.—P.C. H. Roberts, Valley, charged Richard Roberts, a youth, liv- ing at Godre, Penrhosfeilw, with being in charge of a spring cart without lights at 10.40 p.m. on the 31st of January. The defendant was ordered to pay 2s 6d including costs. CRUELTY TO CHILDREN.—Inspector Rowlands, N.S.P.C. to Children, Carnarvon, charged John Morgan Jones and Bella Jones, Pentre Canol, Mountain, with cruelty to chil- dren. Mr T. R. Evans appeared for the pro- secution. The case was one of shameful neglect. The female defendant was to blame. The chil- I dren were in a most filthy state and covered with vermin. The house was dreadfully dirty. —^Sergeant H. Jones said he had visited the house and found six in a bed and the children covered with sores. The house very dirty.— Inspector RoAvlands corroborated.—Dr Clay, Church-terrace, testified to the emaciated con- dition of the children, and a neighbour also gave evidence.—Mr J. R. Chambers, relieving officer, said that in consequence of the male defendant having met with an accident he had given re- lief in kind to the family. The baby at that time did not seem in such a bad condition. The magistrates said that it was the duty of the hus- band to provide for the children, and as he had II grosslv neglected them, he must go to prison for one month. The case against the wife would be dismissed, but she must keep the chil- dren clean in the future. AN UNHAPPY COUPLE.—Grace Prichard, 9, Cybi-place, summoned Owen Prichard, 2, Trearddur-square, Holyhead, for an alleged as- sault. The parties have a separation order, and the complainant visited the defendant for money r when the alleged assault took place.—Mr R. E. I Prichard appeared for the defence, and said that the complainant was the real offender.— Ttis case was dismissed, each party to pay their own costs. AN ENPLORIVE MAGAZINE.—At a pre- view court, an application was received for a license to store explosives in connection with the China Clay Works in the Mountain. Mr T. R. Evans said that he had been instructed by Lord Stanley of Alderley to appear to oppose the granting of the license.—Mr J. LI. Griffith (clerk) said that the applicant did not appear that day, but when the case came on for hear- ing he would inform Mr Evans. A THREAT TO INJURE. — William Hughes, 5, Field-street, summoned Henry Tho- mas, 9, Field-street, in a surety case. The evi- dence was that the complainant was in fear of his life as the defendant had said that he would kill him.—Mr E. H. Williams appeared for the complainant.—The defendant was bound over to keep the peace for six months.

CARNARVON BOARD OF GUARDIANS. THE ASSISTANT OVERSEER AND HIS GUARANTEE. THE VACCINATION QUESTION. SATURDAY.-Mr T. W. Williams presiding. FINANCES.—The Clerk reported the amount of out-relief paid during the past month to be £699 6s 3d, together with £36 18s unsettled ac- counts. There was a sum of £700 in the bank, but the parishes of Llanrug and Bettws Gannon were still in arrears with their payments. CRUEL PARENTS.—The Chairman called attention to the fact that several children of parents who had been sent to prison for neg- lecting and cruelly ill-treating them were now in the workhouse. He thought it would be a very good thing for the justices of the various divisions to keep in mind the fact that it would be well to send the mothers to the workhouse with the children. There were now in the house many babies, and the guardians were compelled to employ nurses to look after them. There- fore, there was a double expense to the rate- payers—that of keeping the mothers in prison, and that of paying the nurses to look after their offspring. Perhaps the removal of tie parents to the workhouse with the children would not be a sufficient punishment for their crime. How- ever, the matter was one which deserved con- sideration.—Captain Jones-Williams asked if it was possible to have the mothers sent from the prison to look after their children in the work- house. In his opinion, that would considerably decrease the aggregate cost to the ratepayers.— The Chairman replied that it would not be pos- sible to do so at present, and he feared that if that course were taken the justice of the cases would not be met. THE HOUSE.—The visiting committee re- ported that they found everything clean and in good order in the house, and that there were no aomplaints from the inmates. The house was fuller now than it had been for a long time, in consequence of the number of children referred to and the paupers who had been removed from Festiniog Union. The number in the house was 113 as against 101 last year. VOTE OF SYMPATHY. The Chairman said it was his sad duty to call the attention of the board to the great loss they had sustained in the death of one of the guardians, a gentle- man whom they had always been glad to see amongst them. He referred to the late Mr Grif- fith Owen, of Bettws Garmon, who was killed by the recent fall at Gtan'rafon Quarry. The guardians would join him in an expression of sympathy with the family—the widow and or- phaned children. Mr Griffith Owen was well known, and looked up to as the agent of the most important slate quarries in the district. Not only did he give every satisfaction to his employers, but every workman in the quarry greatly regretted that he had been taken away. He was much respected throughout the country side. He moved that they send a vote of sym- pathy to the family.—Mr H. Parry seconded, and Mr R. B. Ellis supported, the proposition, which was carried by the guardians rising simul- taneously in their places. NURSING. — A letter was read from Mrs Darbishire, stating that the Nantlle Nursing Institute could not- accept the conditions laid down by the guardians relative to the employ- ment of the nurse. One of the conditions upon which a grant of JE20 per annum was offered to the Nursing Institute was that- the nurse should attend all the pauper patients in the district, but the patients were so scattered that this was impossible. The letter went on to state that the nurse was doing good work in the more po- pulous parts of the district, and the committee hoped that the guardians would sec their way clear to give her some recompense for attending upon pauper cases in those places which she visited.—A discussion took place, in which Dr Jones Roberts said he would move, at the next meeting, that they should give the nurse JB10 for attending upon pauper patients in the most populous parts of the district.—The Chairman remarked that he feared the conditions laid down by the guardians when they first discussed the question were impracticable. Perhaps the best thing would be to refer the whole thing back to the committee, because several other districts were complaining.—This was, eventu- ally, agreed to. THE COLLECTOR'S ACCOUNTS.—A letter from the Local Government ;oard was read, in which they stated that they had deemed it ad- visable to hold an official in-uuiry in regard to the accounts of Mr Thomas Thomas, assistant- overseer for the parishes of Waenfawr and Llan- beblig, and they had accordingly instructed their inspector of audits to that effect.—It was agreed to recommend the holding of the inquiry on the 9th of March.-—The Clerk said there was another letter from the Poor Law Guarantee Association, informing the guardians that the association from the 13th of February discon- tinued its liability under the bond of the guar- dians of the Carnarvon Union.—The Clerk stated that he had informed Mr Thomas of these let- ters, and had received a communication from him, in which he said that the Poor Law Guar- antee Society had given him notice of their dis- continuance of his guarantee, and had returned his renewal premium. As there was no time for him to find another society, he submitted the names of four gentlemen residing in the town of Carnarvon who were willing to act as sure- ties until after the inquiry.—Mr W. J. Williams did not see what. right the association had to discontinue the bond without notice. It was his belief that the premium had been paid till March, and consequently protested against the association acting in this manner. — Mr G. R. Hughes asked whether the association would be responsible for any loss sustained in the past.— The Chairman said he did not think the policy had been in force at all.—The Clerk said he had received notice on the 1st of February that the premium had not been paid, and he wrote to Mr Thomas.—Mr H. Parry proposed that they ac- cept the four names suggested. — Mr G. R. Hughes asked whether they thought it was the duty of the guardians to accept personal se- curity Avhen they had passed a resolution that the security of a guarantee society only should be accepted in future.—The Clerk pointed out that this was only a temporary measure, as they would settle the "matter finally in the course of a few Itionths.—The Chairman said they ought to have some security, and Mr W. J. Williams pointed out that they were in the position of being Avithout security of any kind, and they ought to have seen that the premium was sent to the society.—The Clerk pointed out that Mr Williams was not right in his contention, and said it was the duty of the association to give the guardians notice if they did not receive their premium. The guardians had done their duty, and if anybody was at fault it was the society, who had* not'given proper notice. They gave notice on February 1st, and the policy expired on the 13th of February.—Mr W. J. Williams said he had made a mistake. Whatever had taken place in the past would be covered by the policy of the guarantee association.—The Chair- man then proposed the acceptance of the four gentlemen as sureties from February 13th.—Mr G. R. Hughes inquired as to whether it was easy to draAv a line between the irregularities of the past, if there were any, and any irregulari- ties which might happen in the future. — The Clerk pointed out that this could very easily be done.—The Chairman remarked that the ques- tion was whether they would accept these gen- tlemen or not.—Mr Job Owen We can do no- thing else. I beg to second. — The Clerk ex- plained that the gentlemen who had come for- ward as sureties had done so well knowing the condition of affairs.—The Chairman They are not strangers they know Mr Thomas very well, otherwise they would not ha.ve come forward; and the guardians knew them very well, and that they were trustworthy persons.—Mr C. A. Jones remarked that no member of that board would like to kick a man when he was down (hear, hear). There had been an inquiry, and Mr Thomas had suffered. The Local Govern- ment Board, with every justice, intended to hold another inquiry, and if they refused these sureties it would mean that they would display some want of confidence in Mr Thomas. He also thought they should accept the offer in their own interests, for it they did not they would have no sureties at all. If they did accept they would be all right, and therefore, in their own interests, apart from any feeling for or against Mr Thomas, they should accept Mr Thomas's proposal.—The motion was then carried unani- mously.
The following gentlemen have been placed on the commission of the peace for the borough of Wrerham :—Councillor George Bevan, Captain Gladstone, Mr Horace Davies (builder), Mr LI. Hughes (publisher).

HOCKEY NOTES. The ladies had a busy week end. On Thurs- day last-too late for the "Herald"-a match was played at Llandudno between East and West. The weather was perfect and the ground in particularly good order. The West team looked particularly neat and business-like in their smart costumes of red and black. The East team-which mostly came from Wrexham -were black and white. The game was one-sided throughout. It was remarked that the East team was not represen- tative, many of the best players not caring to come. This is a pity. A strong team was necessary to meet the South, and clubs having formed the Association should not be deterred by small difficulties from playing in the test matches. The result will be found detailed be- low. After the game, the members of the teams were hospitably entertained to tea at the club. On Friday, the North Wales team journeyed to Wrexham, where they met the South in another unevenly-contested game. The mem- bers of the North team, composed of selections from the Llandudno, Portmadoc, and Wrex- ham clubs, beat their opponents by two goals to nil, which is very gratifying. It is somewhat of a reflection upon those re- sponsible that no kind of refreshment was offered to the visiting team. They had taken a long journey to Wrexham, and they had to face the Aveary journey back; and there was not so much as a cup of tea prepared for their refreshment. It would be advisable in future to attend to this matter. The North team would feel it particularly hard if after journeying- say to Cardiff—they were sent empty away. The following ladies were selected for the in- ternational Miss B. Evans, Miss H. Glynne- Grifdths, and Miss Peers. After the match at Wrexham, on Friday, the following team was selected to repre- sent Wales against Ireland at Llandudno on March 27th or 28th —Goal, Miss Andrews (Gresford); backs, Miss Evans (Llandudno), and Miss Smith (Abergavenny); half-backs, Miss Walford (Abergavenny), Mrs Baker Gobb (Aber- gavennv), and Miss Glyn Griffith (Llandudno); forwards, Miss M. Jones (Portmadoc), Miss Wyburgh (Gresford), Miss Wotton (Aber- gavenny), Miss Peers (Llandudno), and Miss Homfray (Portmadoc). EAST v. WEST WALES (LADIES). This match was played at Llandudno on Thursday, the West team comprising players selected from Portmadoc, Old Colwyn, and Llandudno Clubs, Miss Homfray (Llandudno) being captain. Their colours AATere red and black., Avhilst the East Avere white and black. Play started soon after 2.30, the referees being Mr M. Jones (Wrexham) and Mr Breeze (Port- madoc), both of Avhorn kindly came long dis- tances to act. Play in the first half was fairly eyen, both teams in turn pressing, but the better play of the West halfs and forwards told, and two goals were -scored by them in the first half. After half-time the ball rarely travelled beyond the twenty-five line of the West team, and through the whole game the goal-keeper had only to save once. The East centre forward and right wing played well to- gether, but the rest of the forwards were not in touch. On the other hand, the neat passing be- tween Miss Homfray, Page, and J. Peers was much admired, and deserves every praise. Miss Jones (right wing) played very well, though she occasionally left it too late to pass to the centre • forward. The East goalkeeping was good, but the backs and halfs were weak, their play being very uncertain. The West left half- back did good work, both her passing and hitting being well-judged; the centre was in- clined to get out of her place, and did not centre her balls enough to the right. Miss Peers and Miss Evans, at full-back, were good, playing up to each other well, though the latter had a tendency to centre her balls, a fault to be beware of. The shooting of both teams required improving, there being too much dribbling in the circle, clean, well-lifted shots being the ex- ception, not the rule. The want of good shoot- ing was shown very forcibly the next day at Wrexham, by the score being only two goals. The score at the end of the game was — West Team, six goals. East Team, no goals. Excellent photographs of the teams were taken by Mr Slater, for the "Ladies' Field" and "Madame." NORTH v. SOUTH WALES (LADIES). This was played at Wrexham, on Friday, under most favourable circumstances, the weather being delightful, and the ground in good order. The teams were on the field shortly after twelve, the South looking very fit despite their long railway journey. After being photographed, play started, Mr Meredith Jones being referee. The North colours were black I and white, the South dark. The North at- tacked smartly, and after some neat passing by Misses Jones, Homfray, and Peers, a goal was almost immediately scored, greatly to the sur- prise of the South. After this burst both teams took some little time to settle down to work, and to an onlooker it soon became apparent that the half-backs of both teams were weak. The centre half-backs were continually out of their places, often getting into the way of their full backs, as well as their wings. The pressing, the first half, was almost continuously done by the North, and though the South got away two or three times, only once did they become danger- ous, when a corner was given. At half-time, the game stood North two goals, and though with the change of goals, and a slight alteration in the placing of the South team, the South at- tacked more. yet they failed to clear Miss Evans I (right full back), who played a steady, yet brilliant game all through. When the whistle went North won by two goals to none. Taken as an exhibition of play the result was certainly disappointing. The South team had some ex- cellent players, but they failed in combination, and played wildly at times. The forwards^id not pass sufficiently, and though fast and quick on the ball, there Avas too much individual play. Their full backs were very good, and it is to them that the team owe most, the right full back in particular being worthy of note. The centre forward and right and left wings were good, but must practice shooting and passing more. Of the North team the forAvards played a good game, passing neatly and Avell, but their shooting in the circle was extremely poor. Time after time a brilliant run up the field, the centre forward missed her shot; she was not half quick enough on the ball, and lost many chances. The right and left outside wings played excellently, also the inside right. The play at times might advantageously have been given more to the left wing, so as to have re- lieved the pressure on the right of the half- backs. Miss M. Jones played well, and though inclined to foul, she stopped the ball. Miss K. Glynne Griffith also played well the first half of the game. Of the full backs, Miss Meredith Jones was not very sure, and was apt at times to get too far out of her place. The goal- keeper, Miss Andrews, had hardly any work to do at all. IRELAND v. WALES. The fifth annual international encounter Be- tween the representatives of Ireland and Wales took place at Sandymount, Dublin, on Satur- day, and like its four predecessors the game ended in the Hibernians' favour. However, it must be admitted that the Welsh team was far in advance of any of the sides hitherto op- posed td Ireland. There Avere about 600 specta- tors when the game started, the ground being in fairly good order. Ireland attacked at the out- set, and in a hot scrummage in front of goal one of the visiting half-backs sent the ball into his own net. A moment later Andrews wound up a splendid run by registering a second goal. Ire- land crossed over leading by two to nil, and they soon again assumed the upper hand. The defence of Roberts was excellent, but there was no denying the Irishmen, and T. Lyons scored with a lovely shot. This was followed by an- other from the stick of Frank Lyons. Then Wales began to press, and Pearson, the ex- international Welsh three-quarter back, had hard lines twice, two of his shots hitting the uprights. The visitors more than held their own for the remainder of the game, but they could not reduce their opponents' lead, Ireland winning with the score —Ireland, four goals Wales, none. Teams: — Ireland: S. M'Bratney (Ulster), goal; J. O'Connor (Donnybrook) and W. Knapp (Monks- toAvn), backs; E. Townsend (Cork), R. F. Clif- ford (Dublin University), and R. F. Kerr (North Down), half-backs; W. V. Taylor, T. Lyons, and F. Lyons (Cork), 0. Andrews (North Down), and P. Carton (Three Rock Rovers), captain, forwards. Wales: T. Roberts (Dolgelley), goal; W. A. Baylis (Cardiff) and M. Morris (Glamorgan), backs; W. M. Carnegie and H. Wood (New- port), and W. Gunner (Rhyl), half-backs; H. Connah (Rhyl), A. V. Perkins and Dr Reid (Swansea), Dr Griffiths (Milford Haven), and T. W. Pearson (NeArport), forAvards. LLANDUDNO v. OLD COLWYN. Played on Wednesday, at Old Colwyn. The ground Avas uneA'en and one side like a morass, rendering scientific play on that wing impos- sible. Llandudno played down the hill the first half, and were extremely unlucky in not scoring oftener, but the unevenness of the field made accurate shooting very difficult. In the second half, the visitors' forwards got well together, and gave a good display of combined play on the dry side of the ground. The home team made one or two determined attacks, but on the whole were rarely dangerous. Farrington and Raynes, on the wings, were good, and the full backs played a strong game. Some new mem- bers of the Llandudno team were tried, and found very satisfactory. Result: Llandudno, 5 goals Old Colwyn, 1.
FOOTBALL. THE COMBINATION. BANGOR v. CHESTER. At Bangor, before 2000 spectators. An un- usual amount of interest Avas centred in the fix- ture, and a close finish anticipated. From first to last the game was well contested, and good form was shown on both sides. Result: Ban- gor, 4; Chester, 4. DRUIDS v. BUXTON. At Ruabon. In the first half, the home team scored 4 goals to 1, and in the second completely penned in their opponents. Final Druids, 6; Buxton, 1. WHITE STAR v. SOUTH LIVERPOOL. At Bootle.

The Llandudno team kept the visitors waiting, and the start was a quarter of an hour late. Chirk was strongly represented, but Llandudno played Lunt in place of T. Knight at full back. Chirk won the toss and Jones started for Llandudno. James was soon in the front, and upsetting Fred Jones, had a good chance, but he tripped over his opponent and the opportunity was lost. Chirk, however, had the wind, which was blow- ing strongly, greatly in their favour, and in consequence did most of the pressing in the initial stages of the game. A smart rush down the left wing by Lockly and Williams nearly proved disastrous, especially as a misunderstanding took place between Fred Jones and Robinson, but Roberts rushed up in time and prevented James from putting on the finishing touch. Ned Hughes was then promin- ent, and kept the forwards continually on the go. Jones had hard lines from a capital kick, which just rolled outside the upright, and Allman nearly scored with a clinking "header." Morris cleared, however, and James getting the ball, rushed down, and when tackled by Jones passed across to S. Roberts, who scored with a clinking shot. Half time: Chirk, 1; Llandudno, 0. The advantage of the wind was soon shown after the teams h80 changed ends, and the aspect of the game was quickly altered. Llandudno attacked smartly and a corner fell to them. Ned Hughes took the kick, and the ball rose well in front of the Chirk goal. A smart scrimmage took place, and the ball even- tually found the net and the honours were equal. But Llandudno were now bent on winning, and attacked more strongly than ever. Lunt got the ball from Wynne and kicked down to Allman. The latter raced along and passed to Jones, when in front of Meredith, and the ball was sent into the net in smart style. With only a few minutes to play Chirk made some attempt to equalize matters, and Robinson was called on to make a couple of brilliant saves. Webb sent in a beauti- ful shot right from the corner; Morris made a desperate effort to stop it, and actually touched the ball, but failed to deviate it from its course, and a third goal resulted to the Swifts. Time was called soon after. Final: Llandudno Swifts, 3; Chirk, 1. Matches. Goals. P. W. L. D. F. A. Pts.

On Friday night, the council sat at Wrexham for several hours discussing complaints lodged respecting a Combination match at' Rhvl be- tween Rhyl and the Druids, at the conclusion of which, the Druids alleged, they were mobbed by the spectators. The Rhyl Club denied this, and complained of the language used by one of the Druids' players towards some of the spec- tators. The council decided to caution the Rhyl Club as to the future conduct of their specta- tors, and also warned the Druids' player.
