This tie, which should have been played at Prestatyn, was decided on the Penrhos ground on Saturday, a very large concourse of spectators lining the ropes. The visitors put in a late appearance, and also arrived with four reserve men. « Mr R. Hersee, the Llandudno referee, had charge of the game, the teams facing each other in the following order :-Col wyn Bay: Hughes (goal); A. Johnson and R. Campbell (backs) E. Griffiths, R. Owen and O. E. Williams (halves); T. Weilings, W. T. Jones, T. McCann, W. Jones (3) and J. Ll. Owen (forwards). Prestatyn Glass (goal) J. T. Williams and P. Jones (backs), W. Jones, J. Roberts and T. Brooks (halves), R. Hughes, G. Newton, J. Linnell, G. Glass and Holbrook (forwards). < The visitors, winning the toss, elected to kick towards the Penrhos goal with the wind and slope behind their backs. The opening stages were all in their favour, the ball being quickly carried into their opponents' quarters. A foul against E. Griffiths spelt danger, but the sturdy defence of the homesters averted disaster, and sent them to the right-about. The Bay front line from the clear- ance got in going order. By nice play J. Ll. Owen forced a corner, which proved abortive. The Bayites now received a throw in, from which McCann received the ball and, making no mistake, beat all opposition, and with a lovely shot opened the score for his side, amidst great jubilation among the home supporters. This early reverse seemed to make the visitors consider what they were about, but still by nice combination the Bayites kept in the vicinity of Glass, the visiting custodian. Prestatyn now had a look in, paying a flying visit to the other end, their great failure being their shooting as soon as they got within range. As many times as not they put the ball over the goal line on the wrong side of the posts. From a good clearance McCann was set going, and made good headway, sending across to J. LI. Owen, but the whistle sounded, this player being palpably offside. The free kick changed the venue, Prestatyn quickly getting down to the other end, forcing a corner. This was placed in front of goal very nicely, Hughes bringing off a splendid save, with the visiting forwards all round him. A foul against Prestatyn brough the attack to a close. < < Nice footwork was at this period witnessed between W. Jones (3) and J. LI. Owen which nearly brought about the defeat of Glass. W. T. Jones seemed all over a scorer, when he was penalised for fouling. This once more changed the venue, the visitors sending in a red hot one, which put Hughes on his best behaviour. The custodian had to concede a corner, the flag kick proving fruitless. The Bay quintette again got in front of the opposing custodian. W. Jones (3), gathering a very nice pass from J. Ll. Owen, made no mistake in converting it into a goal. Very few minutes had elapsed ere the visitors were penalised for handling in the penalty area. O. E. Williams was entrusted with the free kick, and much to the disappointment of the Bay supporters missed the post. There was no more scoring, half time arriving with Colwyn Bay leading by two goals to none. < < < On the players returning to the field it was noticed that the wind had slightly dropped, but not enough to allow Prestatyn to break from their own quarters. Eventually they got away, and by nice play carried the ball past all opposi- tion, forcing a corner, Hughes again being called upon to handle. From his clearance away went the homesters, Glass showing what he was worth by saving a magnificent attempt by T. McCann about fifteen minutes from the commencement of the second half. Prestatyn were once more penalised for handling. This time R. Owen was entrusted with the shot, which gave the custodian not the faintest chance to save. The visitors were now being penned in their own half. Another corner fell to the lot of the Bayites. J. Ll. Owen took the flag kick, placing the ball nicely in front of goal,' McCann with a header having the hardest of lines in not scoring. About ten minutes from time, McCann, receiving the ball, took it past about five players, finishing up by scoring what was without doubt the finest point of the afternoon. No more scoring resulted, Prestatyn having to retire thoroughly thrashed to the tune of four goals to nil. < < COMMENTS. On the home side Hughes was in a lot better mood than on the Saturday previous, and brought off some very smart saves. A. Johnson was the shjning light in the back division. The halves were very steady, breaking up the combination of their opponents continually. The left wing were most prominent, although the right wing were often very dangerous, and took a deal of watching. McCann as pivot kept his men well together, feeding his wingers times without number. The team en bloc are to be congratulated on their win. « For the visitors Glass was a splendid custodian, some of his saves being excellent. If all his side had worked as hard as he did there would not have been such a heavy score. The backs played a strong game, as also did the halves. There is no doubt that they are not to be blamed for the defeat. The failure was in the forward line. They shot strongly enough, but not steadily enough. As it was, when they did put the ball between the posts, the custodian had to be on the alert. LLANDUDNO V. LLANRWST.. The second round of the Welsh Amateur Cup was contested at Llandudno. The ground was in good condition. The visitors brought down a weak team, five or six of the usual players not turning out. On the "other hand the Amateurs were at their strongest. The game, on the whole, was onesided, the homesters continually pressing. After about fifteen minutes' play, Johnny Wil- liams opened the score, and in a few minutes after- wards added No. 2 through a penalty. After this second reverse, the visitors seemed to buck-up a little, but could not make any impression on the home defence, half-time arriving with the Amateurs leading by two goals. The second half opened in a tame fashion, the homesters taking things easy. A nice bit of' combination by the home right saw Finchett defeated for the third time. Again and again his colours fell, and by the call of time, the poor Rwster had to retreat defeated by five goals to nothing. The Amateurs now enter the third round of the Welsh Amateur Cup competition. Llandudno journey to Pen- maenmawr next Saturday, to play the first league match. They returned last season with the full number of points. Whether they will be as successful next. Saturday remains to be seen, as the quarry lads are in their tip-top form this season and have already dropped. one of their stiffest opponents. < RE-PLAYED CUP TIE. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS V. BANGOR SWIFTS. To THE EDITOR OF THE Weekly News. Sir,—In your issue of the 8th inst. you publish comments on the above football match. With reference to the aspertions cast against the referee, I leave him to answer same, but those against the home linesman I must ask you to withdraw and to caution your reporter as to his future reports. With regard to the penalty kick awarded to the Amateurs, the referee did not consult the home linesman," neither did the home linesman offer any explanation on the point, but when the kick was about to be taken the home linesman pointed out that the right full back of the Bangor team was standing within the penalty area, which he had to quit before the kick was taken. I may add that the Amateurs one and all welcome a fair criticism, but that neither officials nor players abide incorrect statements or un- merited attacks.—Yours truly, HOME LINESMAN."

Colwyn Bay District Council. ENCROACHMENTS OF THE BUILDING LINE. A BREEZY DISCUSSION AND A SCENE. Mr J. Dicken, J.P. (Chairman), presided over the monthly meeting of this Council on Tuesday. The other members present were Messrs George Bevan, D. O. Williams, Rowland Williams5 John Williams, J. Berth Jones, Hugh Hughes, Hugh Davies, and R. Newell; together with the Clerk (Mr J. Amphlett), the Deputy Clerk (Mr Jos. H. Roberts), and the Surveyor (Mr Wm. Jones). PLANS. PRESERVATION OF THE "BUILDING LINE."

Amended plans of Station Master's House, East Parade, for the L. & N.W. Railway Co. Ap- proved. Alterations and additions at Central Hotel, Colwyn Bay, for The Central Hotel Company. Approved. Referring to the first of these items—" Shop, corner of Greenfield Road and Bay View Road, for Mr John Jones "—Mr George Bevan proposed that the Council do not approve of any plans that showed an encroachment on Bay View Road. It was time that this continual encroachment upon the Council's property should be stopped. These plans had been rejected by the Sanitary Com- mittee on several occasions, by the General Pur- poses Committee, and by that board, and yet nearly every time they met they were faced with an attempt to encroach upon the building line of that street, which he thought ought not to be encouraged. The Council should put its foot down and say that they would not consider any attempt to encroach upon the road in that way. It was an injustice to adjoining property owners to expect that any house should be put in front of the build- ing in Bay View Terrace. The Chairman said that it seemed to him that the whole of the building was in front of it. Mr D. O. Williams seconded. It was highly desirable for very many reasons that the Council should adhere to their by-laws in this matter. At this juncture a number of letters were read from adjoining land owners protesting against any interference with the building line as fixed by the Council. Mr Rowland Williams said it would have to be remembered that Mr Jones was not building in Bay View Road. The building was in Greenfield Road. All those who had written letters had en- croached upon the entrance to a very important street. A Voice (from the back of the Council Chamber): That is not Mr Williams (referring to five gentlemen who had taken seats behind the reporters, at the far end of the table): Are these gentlemen allowed in here ? The Chairman The general public are allowed to attend to listen to the proceedings at ordinary Council meetings. Mr Williams Are they allowed to interrupt a member when he is addressing the Chairman? The Chairman No. One of the gentlemen was proceeding to say something when the Chairman and other mem- bers of the Council called for order, and peace was at once restored. Mr Williams, proceeding, said he referred to the great injury that had been done to a road because the owner did not care what happened to the surrounding property so long as he got a certain number of shops on his plot of land. The Council had passed plans that had injured property in that way. They had now several letters before them the object being to induce the Council to disapprove of what they had approved in the other case. Let them do with the one as they had done with the other, and there was nothing, to his mind, that would cause injury in the plans that were then being considered. They had some plans not very long ago to bring out a very massive portico, about 14 feet, in front of some property there. They did not have a growl or grumble then; the plans were passed and the erection of the portico carried out. The present erection could not be a nuisance, to anybody; far from it, they were to be an ornament to that corner. The whole of this line of frontage was in Greenfield Road and a good distance from the next building. Could the Council refuse to pass any plans that the Railway Company—for instance--might present, taking away the sea view from the whole of Bay View Road ? He contended that they could not. If the houses were in accordance with the by- laws they were alright. If this building caused injury, certainly a row of buildings on the other side of the road would. This building, as far as he could see, was going to be an ornament to that corner. One of the gentlemen before mentioned again essayed to make some remark, but before his question could be understood, the Chairman had commanded silence. Mr Williams added that the building was to be a lock-up shop with a billiard room. If such a building as that caused injury to anyone, he would be the first to disapprove of the scheme, but after a careful study of the matter, he had come to the conclusion that the building would be a decided acquisition to the place. Mr John Williams suggested that the matter should be referred to the Council in committee, at the close of that meeting. Mr Bevan did not think the matter wanted any further consideration. The erection was out of the building line. When a man built on a corner he had to observe the building line in both streets. The Clerk said that the question was whether the Council was going to comply with a request to be allowed to build in front of the Council's build- ing line. Mr D. O. Williams reiterated that it was highly important to adhere to the by-laws in a case of that kind. With regard to Railway Cottages the Council had no veto. The Chairman In all committees I have been dead against it. I am dead against it now. It is not fair to property owners besides, it is not carrying out our by-laws. On being put to the meeting, six voted for the motion, and no one against. The motion was therefore declared carried. TEMPORARY OUTBUILDINGS. Mr Bevan called attention to the numerous applications in respect of temporary buildings. He thought it a dangerous policy to grant their sanction to all these structures without making careful investigation as to proper sanitation. SURVEYOR'S REPORT. The Surveyor reported that the death rate for the month of November had been 6-4 per thousand of the population, as compared with 13-6 for the corresponding month in the previous year. He had received a letter from Mr Wm. Horton offering the Council a piece of land at the corner of Rhos Road parade, to enable the Council to
For fine I; cadburys] FlasCoxxr. j 'Ca*'HlL choo e STRONG CHILDREN. Children grow strong on Cadbury's cocoa because it contains in a generous measure those food elements that are essential to health and good physical condition. It possesses the combined advantages of being thirst-quenching, invigorating, and highly nourishing, and the children like it especially because it is the nicest cocoa." Everybody should drink Cadbury's cocoa regularly at breakfast and lunch time, and particularly with the evening meal, because, owing to its mildly stimulative action, it is one of the few beverages that aid rather than retard the digestion of other foods. Cocoa is strongest when pure-Cadbury's is the strongest cocoa because it is the purest. It therefore makes most beverage of the best quality.
Sham Bookbinding. To THE EDITOR OF THE Weekly News. Sir,—I would like to direct attention to a new- move in the publishing trade which, if not checked at the outset, will ruin any bookbinding worth the name. This is to "give away" with a serial publication an appendix, or something of comparatively little value, so that a number of flimsy ready-made COVNIS may be sold at a large profit. In fact the publishers make more profit: out of the binding than the book, while the regu- lar bookbinder is deprived of his chance of bind- ing in a sound, substantial manner, and the sub- scribers' money is frittered away in intermediate profits to middlemen, who merely pack and un- pack parcels. In short, any book subject to much usage isi practically spoiled by being fixed in a publisher's cover instead of being bound in the old way, which is infinitely more durable, q uite as neat, and withal considerably cheaper. At the present time these facts cannot be widely known.—I am, &c.f J W. COGHILL- 4

carry out certain alterations in that quarter. He had also received a letter from Mr W. P. Jones, Old Colwyn, offering the Council a piece of land opposite the Queen's Hotel, Old Colwyn, to enable the Council to construct a footpath along that portion of the road. The offer of Mr Horton was referred to the Highways Committee, that of Mr Jones being referred to a special meeting of the Roads Com- mittee, with power to act. TENDER ACCEPTED. Two tenders were opened for the supply of a new scavenging cart. That of Mr Thomas Davies, Colwyn Bay, at a price of £6 5s was accepted. BURST MAIN., The Surveyor, at a Committee meeting, reported that on Saturday, the 25th of November, a burst had occurred in the i2in. trunk main, near the Post Office at Mochdre, and that the repair had been carried out by 5 p.m. To minimise the effect of the stoppage the Rhiw Reservoirs were utilised, and this, together with the old main, enabled a slight pressure to be maintained in the centre of the town. CONDENSING PLANT. At a meeting of the Lighting Committee, the Manager reported that the following members, viz.:—Messrs J. Williams, J. Dicken, (S. Bevan, and T. H. Morgan, visited the Llandudno Electric Light Station, on the 27th ultimo, to view the Condens- ing Plant. The Committee having taken under further consideration the proposed outlay at the Electricity Works, resolved to recommend—That the application to the Local Government Boards- recommended at the last meeting, be reduced by the sum of tiooo, and to exclude from that appli- cation the provision of a water tower. GASWORKS. At a meeting of the same Committee Mr J. C. Pennington read his report for the past month, showing gas made 4,948,000 cubic feet, an increase of 569,000 cubic feet on the corresponding period of last year. HIGHFIELD ROAD AND PASSAGE. In accordance with instructions the Surveyor at the last meeting of the Highways Committee, sub- mitted the provisional apportionments of the cost and other particulars as to the making up of High- field Road, and the passage connecting same with Grove Park, under the Private Street Works Act,. 1892. After some discussion it was decided to take the road over, qnd execute the necessary work to put it in a proper state of repair. OLD COLWYN FOOTPATHS. The Surveyor reported at the Highways Com- mittee that the plan and estimate of cost of carry- ing out work in connection with the paving of a certain portion of the main road at Old Colwyn had been transmitted to the County Council for approval. PWLLYCROCHAN WOODS. The question of placing a man in charge-of the woods was discussed at a meeting of the General Purposes Committee, but the matter has been held over for the present. FINANCE. From the minutes of the Finance Committee it was seen that the Collector's receipts for the past month amounted to ZC1275 17s. gd. Other receipts were reported as follows: Gas Department, £ 918 os. iod.; General Department, £3 16s. total, £2197 14s. 7d. The Committee reported having received three months' notice dating from the 28th ult., of the resignation of the Collector (Mr Edward Roberts). COED COCH ROAD WATER MAIN. The Surveyor at a meeting of the Sanitary Committee submitted a letter from Mr D. Mac Nicoll, urging the Committee to reconsider their- decision as to the water main along Coed Coch Road extension. The Committee resolved to adhere to the- previous resolution on the matter, and their action was endorsed.
