Colwyn Bay Wednesday v. Hotel Boots" FINAL TIE—PENRHOS CUP. The above match, was played on Wednesday before a good crowd. The Booties were early aggressive. A beautiful pass forward by Joe to Sherwood gained ground, and the ball was then taken up the field by George Chrimes, who flashed1 in a magnificent shot at long range, which WTilliams, the Wednesday goalkeeper, was lucky to save. The Booties monopolised the play during the first half, although the Wednes- day made an occasional raid into the Boots' ter- ritory, but the backs, especially Walters and, Dicks', were perfectly safe. The second half was. almost a repetition, of the first, the Booties hav- ing repeated, hard, lines. Time was called with no score. Extra time was played, and the Wed- nesday right wing had a run up, and owing to a misunderstanding between the Boots' backs and goalkeeper, scored a soft goal. From the kick- off the Boots made a splendid' passing run, Mar- c,(ólll Jones being very prominent, and when near the Wednesday goal was fouled in he penalty line. A penalty was unhesitatingly given by the referee, Mr Mason, when Johnson equalised with, a classy shot. This was the extent of the scor- ing although McCann bad very hard lines upon more than one dccasion. It is not yet decided whether the teams will be joint holders of the cup for next year, or whether the Association will request a re-play. Many of the different English, League directors were present, and most probably somJe of the players will be signed on for some of the First League teams.
DEGANWY AND LLANDUDNO JUNCTION. CONWAY EDUCATION COMMITTEE.— The Education Committee for the Conway grouped schools' district met on Friday at Llan- dudno Junction, Mr W. Bevan presiding. Mr Evan R. Davies, Clerk, informed the Com- mittee that the county authority intended to erect an iron building adjoining the County school at Llandudno. Junction, to accommodate the children crowded out of that school until the new buildSng was erected. The Committee elected Miss Ellen Jones,, Gapel Garmon, as assistant mistress, at a salary of £35 per annum, to take charge of the class in the iron building. Application was made by a committee represent- ing the inhabitants of the Warren district at Llandudno for' permission to use the Council school building there as a reading-room in the evenings. Mr W. O. Williams moved that the Committee sanction the experiment, and this was agreed to. TEMPERANCE.—Mr T.

CONWAY. CORPORATION FIRE BRIGADE.—Orders for the week ending December 24th:' Station duty, Firemen William Ralphs and John Jones (fatigue dress) officer in charge,, Lieut O. Wil- liams.-F. A. Delamoitte (Chief Officer). J. B. GOUGH, the great temperance advocate, was the subject of a very interesting and in- structive lecture delivered by Mr Hugh Pritch- ard at the weekly meeting of the Tabernacle (W.) Mutual Improvement Society, held last Mon- day night. There was only a meagre attend- ance of members. It is a pity that the young people of the church do not appreciate these meetings a little more. The Rev. O. Madoc Roberts was in the chair.—Next Monday Mr W. Hughes (chemist) will give a lecture, which will also be illustrated with lime-light views. THE IMARSH IN 1906.—Such is the demand for camping 'sites on the iMorfa that several ap- plications for the coming season have already been made. In addition to the usual Battalions of Lancashire Fusiliers, it is more than probable that the borough will next summer see the advent of isome entirely new regiments. The 4th Battal- ion of the Nottingham Rifles, better known as the Sherwood Foresters, have expressed their wish to join the Lancas;hires, in camp during Whit- week. From the 14th to the 21St of July, the Durham. Light Infantry, who will be remem- bered from last summer, are anxious, to be our visitors. From the 28th of July to the 5th of August, an application has been made in respect of the Lancashire Fusilier Brigade. For August Bank Holiday week, four Battalions of the Sher- wood Foresters, 4,500 strong, hope to be able to secure the area required by them. Of course, all these applications have to be approved of by the Corporation before anything is definitely de- cided. The waste, ground the Corporation has thought well to. utilise, has by this been cleared of gorse, the extra space thus acquired being sufficient for the accommodation of four addi- tional Battalions. The addition of this extra space will also enable the Corporation authori- ties to give the worn-out patches' a chance of recovering. VOLUNTEERS.—The annual dinner, distri- bution of prizes and' concert will take place on Wednesday, December 20th. The dinner will be held in the Drill Hall, at 6.30 p.m. All members are invited to be present. Dress: Walking-out order, tunics, and blue trousers will be worn; members not in possession of tunics will wear service dress and putties. Distribu- tion of prizes and concert will take place, in the Town Hall, at 8 p.m., when His Worship the Mayor (Surgeon-Col. R. A. Prichard, V.D.) will distribute the prizes. The following have very kindly offered to assist, in the entertainment: Borough Band, Conway Quadrille Band, Mr Denbigh Cooper (Llandudno), Mr Haigh, Mr MacKinlay Davies, Mr D. Garic Roberts, Mr Miaellor Rowlands, Mr Will Capell, Messrs Ell-is and Hampson, and others, Mr J. Stott (accom- panist). Seats will be reserved for subscribers and members of the Company, but a portion of the hall will be set apart for the general public, admission, being free. A collection will be made in aid of the Borough Band new instrument fund. THE VICAR'S CHALLENGE.—Addressing the members of the Glanadda (Bangor) Conser- vative Club on Wednesday night, the Rev J. P. Lewis, the Vioar of Conway, challenged Mr Lloyd-George, M.P., or any of his supporters, to prove that his policy would save the rates, as they boasted. He offered to subscribe ^5 to any charity if it could be proved that the Lloyd- George policy saved the rates. He had already made a similar challenge to certain prominent Liberals, including Mr Moss, M.P., and Mr Haydn Jones, but the £5 was still in his pos- session. (Laughter.) BRITISH PEARLS.—The discovery of pearls among the mussels at Clifden, in Connemara, is no startling novelty, for a pearl-fishing industry has existed on many rivers of Ireland, Scotland, and Walles from :time immemorial. Dr. Blim- ber'.s friends, "the Romans," found pearls as plentiful in Britain as blackberries, and Julius Caesar dedicated a breastplate studded with Brit- ish pearls to Venus Genetrix. They are usually found in fresh-water mussels with distorted shells; but the pearling industry, though still lucrative, is now discouraged by most riparian owners in the .interest's of the salmon. Yet a large pearl from the river Ythan has adorned the crown of Scotland, and a Welsh pearl from Con- way still holds a place of honour on the British crown. BADMINTON.—A match between the local team and Bangor took place at the Town Hall, on Thursday. Conway was represented by Mrs Tux- ford and Mr Griffiths, Miss P. C. Lewis and Mr Glynne Jones, the Rev J. Owen and Miss Dean, Miss R. Johnson and Mr Brown. Miss Johnson and Mr Brown won 3 games and lost i Miss Lewis and Mr Glynne Jones won 2 and lost 2 the Rev Mr Owen and Miss Dean lost 4 Mrs Tuxford and Mr Griffiths won i and lost 3. Bangor has now beaten Conway at both away and home matches, Last year things were quite the reverse. The ladies belonging to the Conway Club are now looking forward to the "ladies' doubles," which commence early in January.
OLD COLWYN. ST. JOHN'S CHURCH.—Dr. Gaul's sacred canitata, "The Holy City," was rendered in St. John's; Church,, on Monday evening, in the pre- sence of a large congregation. The work was performed by the Church choir, conducted by Mr Bryan Warhurst, of Rhyl, and the principals were —Sopranos, Mrs Allen, (Denbigh) and Miss Whittaker (Old Colwyn); second sopranos, Mis,s Nesta Jones (Rhyl), Miss Stephenson (Old Col- wyn), and, Miss Williams, (Old Colwyn) tenors, Rev Peter Jones (Rhyl) and Mr Edward Davies (Old Colwyn); bass, 'Mr R. G. Jones (Denbigh) and Mr R. T. Whitley (Old Colwyn). Mr Bel- cher, M.A., F.R.C.O., organist of St Asaph Cathedral, played the accompaniments. In every respect the rendering was excellent and reflected great credit upon all concerned. A collection was taken, to. defray the expenses. CHRISTMAS TREE--Tlie annual Christmas tree and sale of work was held in the Assembly Rooms, Old Colwyn, on Tuesday and Wednesday. The opening ceremonies were performed by Mrs Mould, Oakhurst, Colwyn Bay, and Mrs Wilding, Colwyn, respectively. The Christmas sale of work has always been a popular event, and judging by the large number present each day, this year's proceedings will prove equally successful, from the financial as well as other points, of view. The stall holders were as follows Viparage stall, Miss Upton, Miss Jenkinson, and the Misses Hughes Jones. Christmas tree, Mr and Mrs Anderson, assisted by Mrs F. Jones and Miss Jackson. Sweet stall, Miss Jenkins. Fancy stall (i), Mrs Pryce Jones, Min Afon Mrs and Miss Lloyd, Tan-y-Coed; Mrs Stephenson and the Misses Pendlebury.
