g-sesB NOTES ON FOOTBALL 1 HOLYHEAD RES. V. CARNARVON RES On Saturday, at Holyhead, the Holyhead Reserves and the Carnarvon. Reserves met for the first time. 1he ground was in a very bad condition owing to the recent ram. The home side led from the first. The visitors struggled hard, but tailed t) accomplish anything beyond scoring one goal, and at the end, Holyhead scored nine goals. Well done Reserves. The Swifts must look to their laurels.

Richards (Bangor) presided over a meeting of the Executive Committee ot the North Wales C#ast League on Friday. -A vote of condolence with the secretary (Mr E. Lloyd Williams( was passed, on the death, in one week, of his father and mother.—-Bangor claimed £ 2 damage^ from Pwllheli for los3 of gate alleged to have resulted from the latter arriving fifty minutes late. The application was re used. -The Conwav Club, for non-fulfilment of a League fixture with Carnarvon, were fined 10s and ordered to pay Carnarvon £ 40 lid expenses, Last Saturday, Carnarvon made a wel- come appearance at home for the first time since Boxing Day, when they handsomely defeated Bangor by 3 goals to 1. The rough weather prevailing, cup-ties, eu. have accounted for the number of vacant Saturdays, and the Carnarvon Executive are to be sympathised with in their run of ill-luck. A good crowd turned up at the Oval last, Saturday, despite the inclemency of the weather. The visitors were Holy. head, always a popular team at Carnarvon. More than usual interest wa", taken in the game, for the two teams were about equal on the League table, and Carnarvon aiso had the proud distinction of being the only team to defeat Holyhead at Holyhead. The Harbourmen made no secret of their determination to wipe out the "tigm, cf this defeat. Holyhead winning the toss took advantage of the fairly strong wind prevailing. The game opened in a ding-dong fashion, and beth custodians were called upon early m the game. McNeil made one very fine attempt to lower the colours of G. H. Jones, but he failed, and the ball soon travelled to the other end, where Walter Jones and R. H. -Roberta made futile attempts to capture the Holyhead fort. One centre of R. H. Roberts deserved to succeed, hut was not quite accurate enough. However. before long, the veteran Tom Robots made no mistake, scoring No. 1 in tine style. Soon after. Carnarvon securid another goal, which was disallowed for offside • quite a wrong decision in our opinion. The goal should certainly have been allowed. Half time came with the score, Carnarvon 1, Holyhead 0. The second half saw Carnarvon pressing hard nearly all the time, and tne Holyhead goal had some very narrow escapes, and so did the Carnarvon goal once, ail the de- fenders mulling badly, but luckily, George Jones recovered in the nick of time, and averted disaster. There was no denying the Carnarvon forwards now, and well backed up by the halves they made things hot for the visitors' defence. From a brilliant centre of R. H. Roberta, Hugh Roberts scored with an equally fine header- It was altogether a very beautiful goal, and gave the custodian no earthly chance. The game continued favourable to Carnarvon, and they ought to have scored again, Time came with the score reading, Carnarvon 2, Holyhead 0. ■# We would compliment both teams on the general excellence of the football displayed. It was exceedingly creditable to all con- cerned considering the spongy nature of the turf. The game was also fought in a true sportsmanlike spirit—fouls there were, here and there in the game, but no vicious ones. Carnarvon are to be congratulated on their fine victory against a veTy well balanced eleven, and it must be admitted that they won entirely on their merits. They were out and out the better team. It is a proud achievempnt to secure four iLeague points from such doughty fighters. No other team has done it yet. and we can almost say that no other team will do it. despite th £ fact that the 'Varsity are an exceedingly clever contingent this year. Dealing with the losers first, they have in H. H. Jones, a very worthy successor to Collier, who so gallantly held the fort for them for so many years. The two backs- Morgan and "Dr" Williams were powerful kickers, but not extra safe at all t;mes. The half line was strong as usual, Dick Ellis being the pick. W. T. Jones was not eo effective as usual. and Taylor failed to hold his wing very well. The forwards were not very dangerous at snv time. although thev showed very prettv plav at times. Salisbury Owen and McNeil formed the better wïng. Salisbury showing a fine turn of speed. R. C. Jones waq not a ereat pivot. and Wal- lace was not 3c tri<"Vv as usual. Hugh Williams did very little on the extreme right, and fail' tl" "ope with the opposing half and back. » #

WELSH AMATEUR CUP REPLAY. I BANGOR v. LLAXDUDXO. j At Bangor, on Wednesday, on a heavy ground, with half a gale of wind blowing. Stallard effected a luck save from Dargie after twenty minutes' slipshod play. Later Arthur Owen dropped a free kick into the Llandudno goal. which Stallard only cleared feebly, and W. H. Jones dasliing iir, promptly netted. With the wind, Bangor did most pressing, but failed to score again. Half-time: Bangor one goal. Llandudno, nil. The Llandudno defence was hard pressed im- mediately on the second half being com- menced. and Davies. in an off-side position, took the ball off Dargie's toes. who was dashing in. and netted, the point being dis- allowed. Llandudno came again, and Brown, equalised with a fine shot at twenty yards' range. One minute later W. H. Jones put Bangor ahead, and close on time Davies crowned a fine attack with a third, Bangjr thus winning by 3 goals to 1. m

COLWYN BAY EISTEDDFOD A CHARGE TO THE PROMOTERS. A largely attended dinner took place on Wednesday night at the Hotel Metropole Colwyn Bay,in celebration of the St. David's Day festival. The chair was occupied by Mr* David Gamble, and the vice chair by Mr T H. Morgan. Tne toast of "The Immortal Memory of Sr.. David" was proposed by Professor W. Lt-wis Jones, of Bangor, who referred to the immediate purpose of that evening's cele- bration at Colwyn Bay. In the coming summer Coiwyn Bay for the first time in the history of tha towa would be welcom- ing the National Eisteddfod. In doing so Coiwyn Bay was claiming for itself a charter, as it were, for inclusion among hr-, historic towns of Wales. So far its history had been that of a very pleasant, a very enterprising, and to all appearance a very prosperous seaside resort. Such a town was in many ways an ideal place for the holding of a national festival-or, should one '.all it, in respect of its modern adornments. a national pageant such as the eisteddfod English residents at, or visitors to, Colwyn ,Bay, if they knew anything at all about Welsh life, would not fail to be imp-ess-(! when the Eisteddfod came there, wiMi the fact that the national festival united all classes and parties in Wales as nothing else did, except perhaps, a St. David's Day dinner. In handing down from th's year to the next, the tradition of Eistedafodio hospitality, Colwyn Bay ranged itself among those older towns which claimed to be the homes of genyine Welsh national feeling (applause). Mr David ilowis proposed the toast of "The Bishops, Clergy, and Ministers." Mr D. LI. Jones that of "The Army and Navy and Territorial Forces," to which Colonel Sarson, Colonel Eales and Captain T. H. Morgan responded. Proposed by Mr J. Williams. "The Urban Council" was toasted, Mr Bevan and Mr Purdy replying. Mr Crompton submitted "The Town and Trade," and Mr Dicken and Mr Maxfell re- plied. "Wales" was proposed by Dr Morris Jones, and "The President and Vice President" by Mr Doughty Davies.

The Miayor (Coumciilllor John WtiMiams) tpresided oveir the, proceedings of the monthly meeting of the Conway Town Council, held on Wednesday afternoon. Wdtih regard to the proposed sewering of Ty'nycioed, tihe estimated cost of which: was (between. £ 800 and B1000, the Birmingham Hospital Sbtunxlay Fund Committee offered JE350 towards the coslt, pointing out that they paid. jM32 lis 2d per anmum in rates, anci that their expenditure under the head- ing of purchases, oonttiiacts, and wa«ges paid in the district, amd, in turn, chiefly spent 'therein, during the paalt two years averaged £2318 per annuim.

It is understood that both, aiuithori- t:,eg are favourahle, and: wúU do all they can to support tthe Town Council. THE BRIDGE, TOEiLS. The Counicitl then, came to the important decision to allow pedestrians as from Apriil 1 next to cross the 'baudlge free of charge and. to adopt a. reduced i sicale of tolls for vehi- elf'?, etc. From a statement prepared by the borouigih accountant, it appeared tihatt if pede^tnians were allowed to pass free over the bridge the surplus of revenue over ex- penditure derived' from the other tolls wou'id approxiimaJteily be J3400. lit was further re- solved, on the motion of Mi* W.

MENAI BRIDGE URBAN COUNCIL. COMPLAINT ABOUT POLICING. A meeting of the Council was h,eld on Tuesday, Mr Thomas Roberts (chairman) presiding. The Finance Committee reported that the receipts during the month were B175 15s 9d. The General Purposes Committee recom- mended that a complaint be made to the Anglesey Police Committee about the inade- quate policing of Menai Bridge, and that Mr Harry Rees Davies, the local representa- Mr Harry Rees Davies, the local representa- tive on the County Council, be instructed to support the application. Mr Joseph Owen said that the recom- mendation was not drastic enough. Com- plaint had already been made to the Chief Constable without any effect, and that should be made known to the Police Com- ) mittee. Mr Rees Roberts remarked that the Police Committee would gather from the word "inadequate'' that more policemen were re- quired. "Inefficient" would be the better word. Mr Joseph Owen Yes, what we want is that they should order the police to appear on the streets once or twice during the even ing (laughter). The recommendation was amended to meet I these views, and carried. In accordance with recommendations by the Pier Committee it was resolved to revise the official guide; to apply to the North Wales Steamship Company to run a steamer down on Easter Monday; to repair the pier and to provide the Piermaster with Ln as- sistant to core with the additional work at Easter. A vote of condolence with the family of th- late Captain James Dodd, commander o( the steamship "St. Elvies," was unani- mously passed, and the members subscribed towards payment of a wreath which Coun- cillors J. G. Bacon and T. J. Matthews iiad sent on behalf of the Council.
BANGOR LIClÐNlSJING SESSIONS. iMr J„ E. Roberts presided at the «td journed Sessions on Tuesday. The Bench, I (through Mr S. R.

The Bench, also through Ma* Dew, objected to the re- newal of the license of the Marquis Inai, Glanadda, Bangor, on account oif the diffi- I culty of supervising a backdoor which the ten,ant at the licensing sessions proper had declined' to close for business purposes with- out, consulting his owners.—'After hearing Mr All'ajnsom for fcha the Bench: ierowed the license.

GREAT ORME TRAMWAY COMPANY. I S-AREHOLDERS' OBJECTION TO SELL j A remarkable meeting of the shareholders of the Great Orme Tramway Company was held on Tuesday afternoon, at the office of Mr A. G. Pugh, Llandudno. The directors have agreed to accept the sum of L7500 f; >r the concern from the Llandudno Urban Dis- trict Council, subject to the consent of the shareholders. The Council, however, r,t their last meeting, declined to assent to the proposal purchase without the approval of the ratepayers, and it was intended that a poll should take place shortly to ascertain the feeling of the town in the matter. Tues- day's meeting of the company was to receive the 21st half-yearly report. The (Chairman, Mr David Jones, moved that the report and accounts be accepted and approved, and stated that it was the best, or as good as the best, that had yet been issued to the shareholders. The re- ceipts from passenger traffic amounted to £1634. as compared with B1361 in the cor- responding half year of 1908, and after ex- pending J3134 on repairs and renewals, there was a balance on the revenue account of JB756. There was a depreciation fund of JS1000, and a total liability, including JB4525 I borrowed on the personal security of the directors in the form of Lloyd's Bonds., of £ 6520. The resolution was seconded by Mr R- S. Chamberlain, and carried. Mr J. Wainwright. said that the amount earned was sufficient, if there had been no payment on the bonds to meet, to pay a di- vidend of 4 per cent. upon the capital in- vested. Why, then, should there have been any proposal to sell the concern to the Llandudno Urban District Council for "n old song, and so loose the shareholders' money? The Chairman stated that the directors were not unanimous in the proposal to sell to the Council, but those who were against gave way in order to test, the matter. Mr Wainwright: As far as I am concerned, I give notice to the directors that they will not do it without Court of Chancery pro- ceedings. Mr Chamberlain said he would not object to selling the undertaking at anything like a fair sacrifice, but he did not think that the town would buy it. Thev would vote three to one against it. and he thought that the shareholders should have been consulted before the negotiations had gone to such a lenght. In reply to Mr G. A. Humphreys, the chairman said that the difficulty lay in the fact that four or five of the directors had become personally liable at. the bank for the bonds and overdraft, and though there had been several attempts to induce the share- holders to relieve them of a rortion of their liability nothing had been done, and the dir- ectors. of course, would be placed in an awk- ward position if they were called upon by the bank to find two or three thousand pounds in. a few months. They were tired of being in that position, especially as the shareholders did not show any disposition to relieve them. Mr Wainwright remarked that the bonds were spread over a certain lenght of time. The Chairman said that was so. This vear they had met a bond for £ 575, the last given to the contractor. Mr White, and for the next two years no bonds would mature, but in the following year there would be one due to Mr Wainwright for £ 1000. Mr Wainwright: If you make as. much money in the next two years, you will have no difficulty in meeting it. The Chairman went on to say that. the bank was not pressing the company, but it was a very unpleasant thing to have to go to the bank for advances as they had to do from time to time. Answering further questions, the Chair- man said that the railway cost £ 20,000 to construct, and the subscribed capital was .B15.000). It would be very desirable that the capital fixed by the Act of Parliament should be reduced from je25,000 to JE20,000, which would enable the directors to issue debentures for the present liabilities. If thalJ were done, the company would be a dividend paying concern at once. but un- fortunately the cost of obtaining these powers would be heavy. This had been pro- rosed on several occasions, and he was not sure that it was too late even now. After an animated discussion, in the course of which Mr John Owen defended the action of the directors on the ground that they had merely been paying all they earned in inter- est, and were no better off, whilst if they were pressed thev would be driven into a course which would be worse for the share- holders, Mr Wainwright moved that for the present the directors be requested to dis- continue any negotiations for the sale of the undertaking to the Llandudno Urban Dis- trict Council at the price mentioned. This was seconded by Mr Cornelius Sever. Mr John Owen contended that the resolu- I tion was practicaly a vote of censure on the directors, and he was conscientiously of opin- ion that what they had done was the best- thing. Mr William Arnold said that the company had had an excellent year, in spite of the bad weather of the last season, and the chances were that they would have a better a.nd brighter year before them. especially owing to the increasing number of reople who played golf and the increasing popu- larity of' the links at the top of the Orme. When the day came for Sunday traffic being allowed, they would carry a great many ) more passengers. The nroposition was carried by eight votes to four. The Chairman appealed to the sharehold- ers to come forward and relieve the direc- tors of some of their liability at the bank. es- pecially as they had chosen to take this course. Mr John Owen They have repeatedly been asked to do that and have refused. — Mr G. A. Humphreys, commenting upon the balance sheet, remarked that it showed a greatly improved position, and that the concern stood to-day as a paying concern. Mr Wainwright proposed that of the gross profit on the half year's working of £756. B500 be added to the "depreciation fund" or reserve fund, making it £ 1500; that J350 be voted to the directors as remuneration. and that the balance be carried forward. He said they could well afford to make this small acknowledgment to the directors of their excellent services, and the addition to the reserve fund would add to the stabi- litv of the company. Mr T. H. Smith seconded the motion, which was carried unanimously. Mr John Owen and Mr T. Esmor Hooson were re-elected directors, and Mr A. G. Pugh auditor. Mr Wainwright then moved that the best thanks of the "shareholders be tendered to the Chairman and the directors for their ser vices. Mr J. H. Jones seconded, and this motion being carried. o meeting terminated.
CLERGYMEN AND THE WIDOW REMARKABLE WORDY DUEL AT LLANRWiST. At the Llanrwst Board of Guardians Oil Tuesday, the application for relief by a widow who resided at a house at Trefiiw, and who paid D15 afmually in rent, wa.s. the subject, of a hot discussion between the clerical section of the board. The Rev Rawson Williams (C.M.) We have had such cases before us before, and we have decided that we have no legal right to gi-ant relief to such people. The Rev J. Gower (Rector of Trefnw) I will make a collection, and head it with 108 if you will subscribe a similar sum. The Rev Rawson Williams: I am not as rich as you. The Rev J. Gower: I move that the application be granted, ev/en if we, as guardians, have to pay it out of our own pockets in case the auditor surcharges us. W" must help those in want. Rev Rawaion Williams (excitedly) Sit down, will you (laughter). We have no right to help a woman to live in comfort in an expensive house. Rev Henry Jones (Congregationalism) She is sixty-seven years of age, and too old to worb. Rev Rawson Williams: We must adhere to the few. Rev J. Gower: There is more honour in breaking the law than in keeping it (laughter). I am surprised to observe the flintlike hardness of the Calvinistic con- science (loud laughter). We are com- manded to be merciful to the beast of the field, not to speak of doing common justice to a poor widow. Rev Rawson Williams: We have no right to go against the law., ItEW J. Gower (shouting): Law be hanged we want justice, not law Rev Rawscn Williams: Tut, tut! Sit down and cool (laughter). Rev J. Gower: You are continually biting my tongue, and now you are chewing your own, and you find it bitter (laughter) Rev Rawson Williams: Mr Chairman, you need not listen to Mr Viewer, who is in a sentimental mood. Let us proceed to other business. We cannot relieve this woman. IRev J. Gower (waving his arms) Who are you to dictate to the chairman? He has forgotten more than you have ever learned (laughter). Sit down on your cloth (laughter). It was ultimately decided not to grant the application.
LLAN-DUDNO AND COLWYN BAY ELECTRIC RAILWAYS. The fourth ordinary general] meeting was held in. London an Monday. Mr A. W. TaIÏft, the chairman, stated that the profit, for the period was JE4436. which. with t.he addi- tion of the amount brought forward and tihe damages received for delay in the delivery of rolling stock (amountinig to JB432). made a total of £5185, and after deducting JB1994 law costs, depreciation, and exoenees of lean, out of the £ 3191 remaining the direc- tors recommended a dividend at the rate of 3 per cent. for the year on the issued capital of the company, carrying forward £,209. The traffic receipts weT-e £14,372, agains' £ 12.067 fe-H year, showing an increase of JB2204. He thought that was fairly satisfactory, in view of the fact that part of the ji-ne was only open a few months; that the weather, upon which a holiday resort like Llandudno was much dependent was very bad ando that the additional roll in, e stock was very much de- layed. The traffic expenses had increased owing to 60,000 more car mileos having been run The extension to Old Colwvn was sr/ill under consideration, but the directors had been unable to arrive at a. satisfactory agreement with the Urbam District Council with regard to the cost of road' widen ing. The action by the Llandudno Council for cost of current was settled by a. compromise. -The report was adopted.

PENMAENMAWR COUNCIL THE LIGHTING OF THE PROMENADK y Tuesday evening, Mr David Jones in the chair. The Surveyor reported that two experi- mental arc lamps, fed with current from the power station of Messrs Darbishires, had been installed on the promenade. The lanterns contained, in each, three 100 candle- power metal filament lamps, and these gave a good illumination, whilst not being so expensive for current as the flame arc lamps. The Surveyor further reported that he had had an interview with Colonel Darbi- shire. who desired that the Council should prepare, r. scheme _for the lighting of the promenade, and he would then quote for the supply of the necessary current. The Council instructed the Surveyor to prepare such a scheme on the basis of th&- experimental lamps.
HORSE DROWNED IN MORASS. A farm servant named Humphrey Jones, Neigwl Deha', near Pwllheli, had a remark- able escape flrom being killed on Tuesday. Whilst driving a- team of horses towards Pwllheli, a motor-cycle, passing in the same direction, frightened t'he horses, with the result that they tore away at a galloping epeed, and all efforts on the part of Jones to stop them proved futile. In passing another team of horses, the leadair of the runaway team turned to his right and jumped clean over a hedge, followed by the othe horse and cart, into a morass beyond, w hen they sunk neck deep. The servant was thrown bodily some distance away and very nearly drowned. Help was immedi- ately obtained, but they failed to .rescue one of the horses, which was drowned.

G. R. Jones, in goal, was very safe, except for one faulty clearance. The backs were rather rocky in the first half, but improved considerably after the interval. Evan Hughes kicked well, and was brilliant at times. Bob Morton made a very creditable appearance in the first team, and we ad- mired hi.s tackling in the second half very much. He will soon be an excellent back. The halves worked hard, Herbert showing some of his Oak Alyn brilliancy. Jack Williams and Johnnie Griffith were also tirel,eas workers. The forwards did weU throughout except in their finishing touches- Walter Jones was not so fiery as usual, and did not oblige with his usual goal. Johnnie Jones and Hughie Roberts were^ very pretty and tricky, Tom Roberts delightfully cool in his movements, and R. H. Roberts prominent with fine swinging centres. Bangor entertained Festiniog, and the Quarrymen returned home victorious by the odd goal in five. Festiniog were far and away the better team, Collins being especially prominent.—Pwllheli travelled to Conwav, and Llanberis to Colwyn Bay, but the referee in both cases deemed play out of I the question, owing to the state of the grounds. 6 In the Second Division, Holybead Juniors trounced Carnarvon Juniors by nine goals to one, H. O. Jones doing most of the mischief. R. Trevor Roberts secured Carnarvon's solitary goal. Gl-asintryn Swifts defeated their neighbours from Llanllechid by six goals to two, although Llechid have been showing improved foim of late. Holyhead are now the likely ohampions of Division 1L In the Welsh Amateur Cup Competition In the Welsh Amateur Cup Competition Bangor travelled to Llandudno and managed to make a draw-no goals scored. The re- play will take place at Bangor on Wednes- day. and Bangor should have no difficulty in' passing on to the semi-final. Provided thev an make a call on all their Amateur they should make a hold bid for the cup "h is year. Bangor -vereas Abterystwyth at I Carnarvon would be an attractive Semi-final- i -Bangor 'Varsity again demonstrated that they are a brilliant team by scoring seven goals to Aberystwyth's one on the Aber ground. Bangor were superior at all points, and their brilliant display was an eye- opener to the Cardis, who only see Mont- gomeryshire League football. • • We think the League Executive have done | their work very well on the whole, in con- nection with the selection of teams for th< East v. West. match, although we don t agree with them in every detail, especially so in the case of Ted Owen. In our opinion the choice should have been between G. H. Jones (Carnarvon) and Bob Williams (Pwll- heli). and of the two we think Williams has the better claim this year. He is certainly superior to Ted Owen now. R. D. Roberts at outside right does not appear to us a good choice, we would prefer either Sahe- bury Owen (Holvhead) or R. H. Roberts (Carnarvon). Still, this is only a personal opinion, and we are glad to congratulate !1, Committee 011 their work, On paper, the West is certainly the stronger eleven, and ought to win easily, but it will be a very interesting match, and we hope it will be played in better weather than was the case last year.
