Llanrwst v. Llandudno-Continued. and the defences were isoirely tried. The visitors' defence gave way to the silly tactics of continu- ally kicking out of play, so much so that the game at this point was void of interest. One can understand when a back is sorely pressed that he should touch it over the line, but a huge kick into the centre of the adjoining cricket pitch is Hxandily sport. But it had the effect of livening up the Roosters to a degree, and the visitors were, given a very lively five minutes in their own territory, Cleeve sending in a hot handful, which Stallard cleared, only, however, 1'0 be troubled with a second visit by the same player. The backs corning to the rescue slightly relieved matters. R. D. Richards gave to Dennis Jones, and Stallard again cleared. The Roosters seemed bent on equalising, and- a corner was forced, from which a hot fusilade followed, Stallard and Co. being penned in the goalmouth. Hands against the home side eventually brought relief. A return visit saw R. D. Richards test- ing Stallard with a beauty. Slight relief was afforded by the visitors' right taking up the run- ning, and an' exciting time was witnessed in front of Giliett, the custodian fisting out of the danger zone. Brown a (minute, later headed a stinger just piast the post. A combined move followed. The home right took up the attack, J. P. Williams landing the ball just over the bar. PLAY THE BAL:L! At this stage the game became slightly roiugh, more attention being concentrated on. the man than the ball, which the referee should be strong enough to at once discourage. A foul was granted against both Isides in turn. Gillett was called upon to clear on two occasions in quick succession. Stallard at the other end safely negotiated an atteimipt by Cleeve. The home froniti rank were playing a brilliant game; high pressure on the visiting defence was the result, and half time was called with the score Llandudno, i Llanrwst, o. SMART GOAL-KEEPING. The re-start saw the Dooisters attacking stub- bornly. R. D. Richards sent in a high shot, which struck a player. Dennis Jones, taking the rebound, scraped the crossbar with a fine at- tempt. Stallard cleared in a few minutes from R. D. Richards, and a third from Howell Ro- berts. The game was now mere shooting prac- tice for the Roosters, Arthur Richards and Den- nis Jones frequently testing Stallard. The youth was, however, quite good enough for any em- ergency, and disposed of four shots in double quick time. The Roosters continued the Tires- sure, and a penalty was awarded them. This Arthur Richards was entrusted with, and Stal- lard cleared magnificently From this narrow escape the aspect of the g,ame changed, and a run up the left by the visitors resulted in a second goal being registered against the home side. Several good attempts by the Roosters were all. successfully dealt with, and the final whistle was sounded with the result: — Llandudno, 2 Llanrwst, o. COMMENTS. Stallard, the visiting custodian, was a marvel. His clearances were a treat, and but for him the result would have been very different. The backs were a good pair, the great Johnnie Wil- liams asserting himself on several occasions. The halves were strong defenders, and very fast. The front line was poor there was no combination, Davies and Jim Williams being the best of the quintette. Gillett, for tba home side, had very little to do save for the two goals which beat him. In- deed, during the last rnoiety he was playing in the Llandudno half. The home backs were not as good as on the previous Saturday, but the faalMine was fine, and time and again the three players were responsible for attacksi which should have borne fruit. The forwards were much superior to the visitors'. Cleeve at centre was iine, and is developing into exactly what I predicted after the first matich at Festiniog. Richards and Dennis Jones were again the thorn in the side of the visiting defence, with Howells iRoberts as a good runner up. J. P. Williams should be put in his proper place at right full, where he will prove of value to his side. He is not a forward, and the committee cannot expect to make a forward out of a full back. In a; nutshell, Llanrwst had all the play and Llandudno all the points.
FLINTSHIRE LEAGUE-Div. I. TRYDDYN ALBION v. RUTHIV. The above match was played at Tryddyn on Saturday. The visitors were minus their cap- tain and vice-captain. Mr J. S. Matthias Brymibo, had charge of the game. The teams turned out as follows: — Tryddyn.: A. Jones, goal'; R. Lloyd and J. Lamgford, backs R. J. Davies, G. Turner, and iR. Humphreys, halves F. Borrows, H. Whitt- ley, E. L. Williams, G. Williamis, and G. Ken- drick, forwards. Ruthin G. Lewis, goal; J. M. Williams and Jack Thomas, backs; W. Williams, W. Good- win, and J. Hussin, halves; W. A. Evans, D. Thomas, T. Edwards, F. Lloyd Denton, and G. Rowlands, forwards. Tryddyn won the toss and decided to play down. The visitors soon attacked, and follow- ing good work on the right wing, the home goal had a narrow escape ith a good shot from. Jack Thomas. From the goal kick the; homesters at- tacked, but Edwards, playing well up, put the home forwards offside. There was much differ- ence between the preitty combination between the visitors' half-backs and forwards from the- huge kicks of the homesters over to the next field. The field was so short that the home backs con- stantly sent the ball over their forwards to the Ruthin backs to be returned. Tryddyn had a corner, which was temporarily cleared, but in a ,scrimmage in front of goal, WhQltitley sent the ball through the crowd of legs into the net. This put the visitors on their mettle, and they attacked strongly. Then to see the home cus- ,todian cleanly missing the ball in attempting to punch it, but worse—Williams sent the ball to the next field. Tryddyn again attacked, and had a couple of corners ere they again scored. The visitors again attacked, and following some nice combination, the ball went over to the next 'field. Many free kicks were being given against Tryddyn, and the referee had to caution Davies on two or three occasions. Half-time arrived,, the score being Tryddyn, 2; Ruthin, o. On resuming, Ruthin were immediately in the neighbourhood of the home goal, but the for- wards carried their passing too far. In mid- field they may fool wifth the opposing halves, but when they get near goal they shoot hard and often. However, they failed on this occa- sion. Not even with the aid of corner kicks could they get the ball into the, net, until nearly thirty minutes had gone, when, following a free kick against Davies,. Edwards lifted the ball to the goal mouth, and the home back, in attempt- ing to clear, put the ball through his own goal. Ruthin now had matters nearly all their own way, and following a nice combination by Lewis and J. M. Williams, Willie Williams netted the ball; but the referee ruled it offside. Why he gave it offside, I am at a loss to know, as Lewis was nearly on the goal line before he centred for W. Williamis to shoot in. Ruthin again at. tacked, but offside spoilt the movement. The free) kick was returned by Edwardls to the home goalmouth, and J. M. Williams rushed the ball out of the goalkeeper's hands, only to see it roll past the wrong side of the post. Nearly on time, Tryddyn again attacked, and gained a corner, which was partly cleared, only for the ball toi be flashed paisit Rowlands. Final score: Tryddyn Albion, 3; Ruthin, i.
Football Chips. (.BY c, VIGILANT." That -Bangor Combination team is maintaining its reputation of winning. That a clever victory was obtained on Satur- day over Wrexham. That I think the defeat was unexpected in Wrexham circles. That 'Bangor was not, ujp to the brilliance, as a whole, that they are capable of. That all the same they were the better side, and deserved their victory. That the Bangor forwards were at times very slow, and at other times smart, nippy, and tricky. That it will be a capital, acquisition to have Dai Davies, late of Beaumaris, as outside right for Bangor. That Dai is one, of the prettiest players that graced the Beaumaris ranks last season. That he will become a great favourite in Bangor. That Will Jones in goal for the citymen was up to the mark. That I have seen Hwfa play better. That Jack Jones was a great plodder, and effected some timely clearances. 'That Jack Arridge was a great worker. That Alfi Thomas has been seen to greater advantage. That! all the: same he was a great worrier in the half back line. That Jimmy Jones is as green, and fresh as in bygone days. That he is a neat player That he revels in the game, and is a favourite with Bangorians. That Joe Thomas worked hard as outside right. That he put in some neat centres. That A. Dargie was fine in the second half, and his two goals were treats. That it is a long time since enthusiasm1 was seen in Bangor when he scored the second1 goal. That it was a gem arising out of splendid tactics. That the always cool En Avant thumped, the Press table vigorously when Dargie accom- plished his feat. That Richie Jones was good and poor in turns. That he has some smart ideas when, he can put them into force. That he scored number two in his best style. That Hughie Davies and Oliver made a good left wing. That Oliver is regaining some of his former brilliance. That he was one of the best of the front line on Saturday. His deer-like runs were much en- joyed. That Hughie Davies is also a delightful player. That Bangor have a team that will give much delight to its supporters through this season. That Bangor is receiving good financial sup- port. That Mason was a marvel in goal for Wrex- ham. That Humphreys and Morris were a pair of sterling defenders. That the half-way line was composed of Joneses. That the centre half seemed not to be enjoy- ing himself, and talked as if annoyed frequently during the game. That Rogers was a good pivot. That Carlton and Fradklin made a good right wing. That Mullen was to have been in the central position. That '.Pike and Clutton made; an effective left wing. That the Holyhead F.C. have issued a hand- bill, The Budget and Football." That it is ingenious, and states How to re- cover over six months' extra tobacco, taxation, as levied by the present Budget." That it is an appeal for subscribers of 5s. tickets, who will have a net gain of at least 3s. iod. over non-members. That "assuming a man smokes three ounces of tobacco per week, the gain of 3s. iod. will cover over 30 weeks of the extra taxation." Bravo, Percy! That the match between Holyhead and Colwyn Bay was a disappointing one. That the home team deserved their win, and should show improved form in future matches. That George Carlisle, of Liverpool, was mak- ing a first appearance in Coast League football. That he performed creditably at right half. That H. Williams scored three goals; but Johnny Jones, who scored one goal, took the eye in the forward line. That W. T. Jones and Co. were untiring workers at half, and the defence was sound. 'That the Bay forwards were knocked off their game in the first half, and never recovered their form. That changes wil\ probably have to be made in the front rank for reasons explained in Vedette's report. That he thinks it is a pity that neutral lines- men canniot be appointed in Coast League matches, presumably owing to the expense that would thereby be inourred. That the linesmen on Saturday were Messrs. Percy Weekes and J. Parry Hughes, the secre- taries of the respective teams. That they carried out their duties well, and the foregoing remark does not reflect on their capabilities That all the same, were linesmen neutral, the referee would be more inclined to pay attention to their appeals with ,consequent benefit to the game. That Llandudno managed to check the trium- phant work of the Roosters at Gwydyr on Satur- day. That the result, was a shock to the Roosters' supporters. That Llandudno, I understand, went there to win, and took the strongest eleven they could. That Johnny Wîlliamsi played a good back game. That Stallard was in the pink of form. That J. H. Jones made his first appearance with the Cormorants this season. That rumour has it that he may be seen in Colwyn Bay ranks for reasons that will be told again. That Johnson, is improving in every match, and takes up Georgie's position with credit. That Georgie has done yeoman service for Llandudno and deserves every praise for it. That Willie Edwards and Harold Pearson were the other halves, and played for all they were worth. That, according to "I Inigo," the poor Roosters had all the game and Llandudno all the points. That it was rather disappointing to see this reverse at Gwydyr after so much previous glory. That all the same Llandudno, were clever enough to bag two points, which is some sola- tium for the two points deducted for playing an ineligible player. That I hope to give an extended notice of Llanrwst later on. That Denbigh deserves every praise for being the second Welsh club on a successive Saturday to take Birkenhead down on; their own ground. Bravo, ye Thrushes' That the goal-getters for Denbigh at Birken- head were Davies, Walker, Evans and Gallagher. That the Canaries are starting their season well. That Conway lost two more points on Satur- day. That the glorious uncertainty of football is evident more this season than, ever. u_-

FRIENDLY MATCH. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS' RESERVES v. TALYCAFN. (By FIDELIS.") A sort of mild interest was taken in the meet- ing of the above teams on Saturday. Rumours were afloat that the visitors' team would be com- posed of the players who would, in all pro- bability, represent Penrhiwardwr in the Junior Cup competition. In fact, it was supposed to be a sort of preliminary canter, in view of their meeting in the first round of the above. On their arrival at Llandudno it was seen that a somewhat weak eleven had turned out. In fact, they werq a man short. Noel Roberts, of the home club, however, kindly assisted them, and I must say he proved to be a very, able substi- tute. It was seen before the game had been in progress many minutes that the visitors were no match for the home team, who, by the way, were assisted by several players who have played with credit in the first eleven. In the .first half a matter of five goals were scored by the homisters, while in the second the visitors were run to a standstill, and four more goals were added Result: Llandudno Reserves, 9; Talycafn, o.

Correspondence. To THE EDITOR OF THE Weekly News. Mr EditoT,-I regret to have to call the atten- tion of whoseoever it may concern to those indis- creet club officials and committee men, who ap- pear on various football grounds as howlers to' encourage and incite the crowd to rowdyism, which irritates the players, mars the play, and harms the noble game in general. This was evident on Saturday in a North Wales Coast (League match. How are we to eliminate these noble sportsmen from the control of our na- tiOlnaH game, who can say?—Yours, &c., A SPECTATOR. Mr. Vigi'lant,Did you ever see such a thing in all your life—a home team taking the field with only nine men? A tenth anneared later minus a jersey, and the eleventh put in an appearance ten minutes after the commencement of the game. Who do you think is responsible for this kind of thing? Who shall we ask to resign, the players or the committee?—Yours &c., IN A DILEMMA. Dear Vigilant,"—Who is responsible for the state of affairs at the Conway v. Carnarvon match last Saturday, I should like to know? Just think of it, the home team having only nine players to start the match. I think it shows1 very bad management somewhere. I should suggest that some of the officials, say the Secretary i in future should see that the whole eleven are in the dressing room together before the match, then he will know how he is situated. I was told that the services of one, who offered to play on Saturday when, he saw only nine men, was refused, and he has now asked for his papers." Now, I believe this player has played for some; very good teams, and. I blame the officials for refusing his offer, he being, too, .a registered player for Conway. I would rather have an Eleven of schoolboys, who. would turn up on the field in time and in full readiness for the fray before I would beg and crave on some so-called sportsmen to wear the Conway colours. Too much nursing of the Conway team has been done in past years. Committee and offi- cials, be stubborn, and rule the players, and not vice versa. Another thing I did not like on Saturday was the howling and booing of the spectators, among them being officials of the Conway club, on ac- count of now and then kicking out, when pressed, of course, of the Carnarvon backs. They must remember that the Carnarvon players were on foreign soil so to speak, and were lead- ing, and have, no doubt, in view the champion- ship of the League this season. I wonder what Conway would have done if they were leading? Do they recollect what they did when a Flint- shire team opposed them a few years ago? Why, npthing but kick out continually. I think the whole affair might be wound up in saying that the Conwayites had thought of wreaking veng- ance on Carnarvon on account of the final cup-tie last year, when they knocked Conway out; but they failed to do it, as Carnarvon proved too good for them on Saturday.-Yours, &c., FAIR SPORT.
I New Vicar of Penmaenmawr. INDUCTION OF THE REV. GRIFFITH MATHEWS, B.A. On Friday evening last tJhe Rev. Griffith Mathews, B.A., was inducted to the living of Penmaenlmawr at the Parish Church. Long before the appointed time (7 p.m.) the sacredl edifice was filled to overflowing by a vast concourse of people. Although the whole of the proceedings were in Welsh, with the exception of the reading of the mandate, it was extremely gratifying to notice such a number of English residents pre- sent. The Rev T. D. Jones, Curate, read the prayers to the Thine Colect, also the special lessons, Ezeckiel xxxiii. 1-12, and Titus ii. The choirs of the two Welsh Church were combined for the occasion under the leadership of Mr. H. Christmas Jones, Mr. C. E. Evans presiding at the organ. Four well-known Welsh hymns appropriate to the occasion were sung with much feeling, and the special Psalms, the 84th and 121st, were chanted during the service. After the reading of the .prayers, the Ven. Archdeacon Morgan proceeded with the cere- mony of induction. Escorted by the two churchwardens (Mr 'Henry Kneeshaw and Mr Daniel Jones), the new Vicar, together with the Archdeacon, wended their way towards the west door of the Church, I REV. GRIFFITH MATHEWS, B.A. from thence toi the bell, font, reading desk, lec- turn, pulpit, and the Communion table. At the conclusion of this ceremony the Ven. Archdeacon ascended the pulpit, and delivered an able and inspiring address based on Gal- atianis vi. 2, 5. He impressed upon the congregation the duties of both the clergy and laiety, and appealed to the parishioners to all in their power to co- operate with their new pastor in his work in the parish by practical sympathy and prayer. The whole service was devout and solemn. It was very evident that something more than the feeling of curiosity had led so many people to be present. The occasion will not soon be forgotten, such an event being rare and an epoch in the spiritual history of a parish. The deed of induction was testified to by the churchwardens and other representatives of the three churches. VALEDICTORY MEETINGS IN BRISTOL PRESENTATIONS TO THE REV. G. AND MRS. MATHEWS. During his fourteen years of hard and faithful service in East Bristol, the Rev. Griffith Mathews gained the high esteem of the parish- ioners, which was fully shared by Mrs. Mathews, who seconded his efforts in a noble and whole- hearted manner. The cordial feelings entertained towards the Vicar and Mrs. Mathews by the churchpeople of the parish found eloquent expression at the farewell meeting held in Christ Church Schools, Barton Hill, when there was a crowded attend- ance, presided over by the Rev. P. G. Alex- ander. We quote iOIT' a lengthy report in the Bristol Times and Mirror After a brief introductory speech by the Chair- man, ,My. W. Cox (th-e superintendent of the Girls' Sunday School) said he was first introduced to the prsent Vicar when he came to their Sunday School in that room and there were only then two teachers and some twenty scholars. There had been great development since then, and much of that was due to their Vicar. (Applause.) He had done his duty as regards the schools, and on 'behalf of the teachers he wished to thank Mr. Mathews for the very many pleasant Tuesday evenings they had had in the Vicar's study., where they had learnt many valuable les- sons with regard to the grand old Book. (Ap- plause.) Thanks to Gorl and their Vicar, they were able to pay their way with their schools. Mr. L. Pegler, speaking on behalf of the Christian Endeavour Society, said the members felt the Vicar's loss, perhaps, more than any other body, He was a true friend to everybody, more especialty to the sick and suffering, and he would never be forgotten. (Applause.) The Rev. T. Caroeron Wilson (Vicar of St. Luke's Barton Hill, and patron of the living of Christ Church) said they could show their ap- preciation of what their Vicar had done by making that work even a greater success in the future. He had had many opportunities of watching Mr. Mathews' work, and he believed it would be of lasting benefit. They wished Mr. and Mrs. Mathews God-speed in their new work. (Applause.) I Mr. David B. Miller, on behalf of the Church Missionary Society, said he should like to pub- licly acknowledge all that Mr. Mathews had done on behalf of that organisation. Mrs. Donaldson Selby, on behalf of the Girls' Friendly Society, then presented Mrs. Mathews with handsome silver entree dishes, and said they all knew how much work the Vicar and his wife had done for the Society and the kind- ness they had shown to the members. They hopedl the little gift would remind them of the people of Christ Church when- they were far away. (Applause.) Mr. Charles Knife (people's warden) said it fell to his lot to ask Mr Mathews to accept a gift on behalf of the congregation. For 12 to 13 years h;) had been working with the Vicar, and it had been a real pleasure and happiness. Since Mr. Mathews had been'there the Sunday School had grown enormously, and it had done splen- did work They had had many kindnesses from the Vicar, and he would be much missed in Barton Hill. He had to thank their Clifton friends for all their kindness in subscribing to the testimonial, whi-ch had been given to largely by their Nonconformist friends. By the help of all they had got together the sum of £ 45, and he asked the Vicar to accept it as a thank-offering for what he had done for them. (Applause.) Mr. T. C. Aplin (choirmaster) presented the Vicar with a framed enlarged photograph of the choir, and said his association with Mr Mathews for the last fourteen years had been of the pleasantest. The Vicar, who was given an enthusiastic re- ception, then took the chair, and said there were times when one could not express his feelings, and he was in that position that night. He thanked them from the bottom of his heart for the kindness they had shown to him and his dear wife. There was no need of any presents to assure them that the people of Barton Hill I cared for them. He knew they did, but he never knew they cared for them so much as they did. The manifestation of love and affection shown them would never be forgotten. (Applause.) There was one thing he felt he did not deserve —any of the kind things that they had said of him; but he knew that he loved them, and he had never intentionally said anything unkind to anyone. He should never forget them. How could one forget one's jnrst parish, where one had spent a third of his life? He was married there, his children were born there, and Christ Church would be to the end of their lives their home. (Applause.) He could tell his successor that he would find the people at Christ Church warmhearted, true, and faithful, and who would support him in every effort for God's glory. (Applause.) The Rev. de Lacy O'Leary (the Vicar design- ate) made a short speech, in which he thanked them for their kind! reception, and said he was struck by the warmheartedness of the people of Christ Church. The meeting closed with the doxology and the singing of one verse of God be with you till we meet again." In the afternoon the members of the women's meeting waited upon their president, Mrs. Mathews, and presented her with a handsome tea service. A farewell tea to the Rev. G. and Mrs. Mathews in connection with the Bible classes was held in the Church Room on Saturday even- ing. After partaking of the good things kindly provided by the .members of the women's class, the vice-president of the men's class, Mr. J. W. Tipping, in his opening address, spoke of the Vicar's work in the past, and said that it was fourteen years ago since they welcomed him with love as their president, and that love was four- teen years stronger tc-day than it was then. During the whole of that time Mr. Mathews had taken their class practically single-handed, and he felit sure that of times he had been at class when he ought to have been resting. They could not let their worthy Vicar go without giving him some token of their love and esteem. He hoped that God would bless and prosper him. and also Mrs. Mathews and their family, in their new home. (Applause.) Mr. Tipping then called on the secretary of the women's class to make a presentation. Mrs. Walker, after a very appropriate speech, presented Mrs. Mathews with a handsome din- ing-room table cloth on behalf of the women's class. Mr H. J. Crampton, secretary of the men's class, presented the Vicar with, a beautiful marble clock on behalf of the members, not onlv for his faithful services, but for the many lessons he had taught them which had been a great help to them in their daily life. The Rev. G. Mathews, in acknowledging the gifts on behalf of his wife and himself, said he hardly knew how to express his thanks for the very beautiful gifts which his wife and himself had received that evening. He should always value the gifts because of the love and kindness which prompted them. He should never forget their kindness to his wife and himself.
Penmaenmawr Urban District Council. THE BIG ADVERTISING SCHEME. MR. McCLEMENT'S ACTION SUPPORTED. The monthly meeting of the above Council was held on Tuesday, Mr. David Jones (chairman) pre- siding, and the other members present were Col. C. H. Darbishire, Dr. J. R. Williams, Messrs. P. H. McClement, J. S. Coverley, D. Gordon Jones, F. D. Chantry, R. D. Owen, and Thos. Roberts, together with the Deputy Clerk (Mr. J. W. Post), the Sur- veyor (Mr. R. J. Hughes), and other officials. THANKSGIVING DAY. Upon the recommendation of the Estate Com- mittee, the Chairman of the Council was re- quested to issue the usual notices klieclaring Wednesday, October 13th, to be observed as har- vest thanksgiving dav at Penmaenmawr. FINANCE. The Collector reported' harving collected the sum of Z833 2s. id., and the Treasurer reported that the balance in hand up to date was £993. PROTECTING THE SLOPES. Upon the recommendation of the Roads and Improvement Committee, it was resolved that representation, be made to. the County Council for pressure to be exercised with respect to an early commencement of the work required in the Llanfa-irfechan district at Pemyclip, which is urgently needed to protect both the existing slope and the work already done there. NEW BUILDINGS. Plans for the erection of two bungalows at Cae Cyd-road, for Dr. J. R. Williams, and Dr. Fawke, Northampton, were approved of sub- ject to completion in accordance with the bye- laws. VITAL STATISTICS. It was reported that during the month of Sep- tember there had been six births and four deaths in the district. TO ADVERTISE PENMAENMAWR. The report of the Joint Committee with re- spect to the advertising of the North Wales Coast, in conjunction with the Railway Com- pany (which has previously appeared in our columns), was submitted by the Clerk. Mr R. D. Owen said that ~e noticed in one of the newspapers that Mr P. H.McClement stated at the C'oilwyn Bay Conference that P,en. miaenmawr would subscribe £25 towards the scheme. He was not aware that either the Council or the Town Improvement Association had fixed upon any sum, and therefore would like to know if the report he had seen was cor- rect. Mr P. H. McClement said the report was quite correct. It was very depressing to listen to. one representative afte; another talking and not pledging themselves to do anything. He thought that as Llandudno were contributing- £ 100, Pen- maenilllawr should contribute pro. rata. Colonel Darbishire congratulated Mr Mc- Clement very heartily upon what he had done in offering, 00 behalf of Penmaenmawr, to sub- scribe £25 to the scheme, and thus upholding the high character which Penmaenmawr always had in such matters. It would have been most unfortunate if that character had not been main. tained upon this important occasion. Dr. J. R. Williams thought that Mr Mc- Clement had done a very proper thing in men- tioning the Z25 as there was a reason for fix- ing that sum. VOTE OF SYMPATHY. A vote of sympathy was unanimously passed with Councillor R. D. Jones and family, on the death of Mr. John Jones, of Glasgow House, who was one of the oldest inhabitants of the town. GOLF COURSE. The Council gave instructions for a scheme to be prepared for laying out the recreation grounds recently acquired by them for golf, tennis and croquet, and decided to lay out the green for Golf at once. It was further decided to convene a public meeting of supporters to consider the forma- tion of a golf club.
Unpaid Premiums. The London Insurance Budget and Com- mercial World of the ist inst. contains an excellent and exhaustive article on the subject of Unpaid Premiums," written by Mr. W. Thompson, of Colwyn Bay, Superintendent to the Prudential Assurance) Company, and will be read with profit by Industrial Life Assurance Superintendents throughout the country. Mr. Thompson was sel,ected to write the article by many superintendents of the Prudential Assur- aibce (Company, and the high standard in which he has placed so difficult a subject has created great admiration.
