North Wales Football. (Continued from page 4.) Festiniog v. Bangor University.—Continued. itiirely disorganised, owing (to Whittaker being disabled], but during the second half played a much better game. For the 'Varsity, Daniel cleared neatly with- out any gallery play. Of the backs, Tones was the best, whilst Brock played a clinking game at half. Don Rowlands exhibited temper on several occasions, and until a player can com- mand that part of himself he should abastain entirely from sport. 'They don't combine, and are apt to bring the whole team into disre- pute. The referee was obliged to speak to the same player on two or three occasions, and this should have sufficed. Bravo, the forwards! of whom Mathews was far and away the best, al- though inobly assisted by Wright and T. E. Jones. The latter is a fine sprinter, and his ■centres were well timed. The left wing was not allowed the same scope, Tom Hughes being on the alert. Congratulations to the referee, Mr. Walter Parry. He is fast becoming a favourite. -1- a
BANGOR RESERVES v. COLWY.V BAY. BANGOR'S HUGE SCORE. (BY VEDETTE.") Colwyn Bay will have a vivid recollection of the Bangor ground, where, on the occasion of two visits this season they have been debited with twenty-one goals and obtained but three. The visitors had a weak team, whilst the Re. serves were at full strength. Hands, who has played for Mexborouigh, a Midland League team, was making an initial appearance for Bangor, and occupied the inside right position. Teams Bangor Reserves: Ted Owen, goal; D. J. Thomas and J. Ireland, backs; Arthur Owen, ,H. J. Davies (captain), and D. T. Daveis, halves; Rowlands, Hands, Hughie Owen, C. Burns, and E. liloyd Jones, forwards. Colwyn Bay: C. Hallwood (captain), goal; T. Webb and R. C. Morris, backs H. P. Evans, W. E. Roberts, and Ned Griffiths, halves J. S. Owen, Stanley Hughes, Wilson Southern, R. W. Kay, and Howell Pritchard, forwards. Referee: Mr Shaw, Chester. Although the kick oil was timed tor 2.30, a start was not made until a few minutes to three. The visitors won the toss, and played towards the Church. After the opening exchanges, Southern was prominent for the Bay, but the backs cleared-, and Jones made a run that boded ill for the visitors. However, a forward: was offside, and then the Bay got down by clever passing on the left wing. After five minutes' interestiing play, in which neither side could claim any advantage, fine combination by the homesters resulted in Biurns scoring from a pass by Hands. A minute later Burns added a second from a centre by Jones. Undaunted, the Bay set to work, and for the! next few minutes severely taxed the home defence. Arthur Owen handled in the penalty area, but the referee failed to see. the offence, andi a few seconds later Hughes scored with a splendid shot from long range. The ball was sent in from the right and found its billet in the left hand top corner of the net. This occurred after eighteen minutes' play, and there was every promise of a close a-la exciting" game. AN UNFORTUNATE INCIDENT. Suddenly, as the players were walking to. the centre, Hallwood fell to the ground. He was immediately surrounded and given first aid, but all efforts proved unavailing, andi he was carried off the field. It appeared that be had been seized with cramp. This was a grave misfor- tune for the Bay, and in the excitement of the moment the fact that W. E. Roberts is a goal- keeper Off more than average merit was over- looked, Webb was chosen to fill. the breach, and whatever merits he may possess, it is cer- tain that his abilities do not lie in' the direction of keeping goal. Still, he is deserving of praise for his willingness to take up the position, for a man never knows what he can do till he tries. For a short while the Bay were aggressive, but the homesters got going with irresistible pur- Ijose, and passing on the right, resulted in Hands scoring with, an obliqrue grounder. Soon Hallwood returned, and was loudly cheered, but a little later he staggered out of goal with the intention of again leaving the field. But he was unable to reach the ropes, and falling prostrate to the ground, he was at once carried rinto the dressing room. Webb again took up the position in goal. Hereabouts the referee did not distinguish some glaring cases of offside. Tones soon put the Reserves further ahead, and Owen added another. Southern broke past the backs, but the ball was too far ahead for him to reach ere Owen ran out and kicked; awiay. Jones 'brought Bangor's total up to half a dozen, this goal being registered in the extra time allowed on account of that wasted whilst Hallwood was being attended to. Jones, who was in splendid form against a weak defence, ran into the pen- alty area and scored a seventh goal with a hard shot that struck Morris and bounded over him into the net. Webb being deceived by the flight. Then the first half came to a close, having lasted but three minutes short of an hour. On account of the late start and the interruptions, it seemed doubtful whether it would be possible to finish the .game before darkness so enshrouded the ground that the referee could no longer fol- low the play. PILING ON THE AGONY. The interval was a very short one, and upon the players again taking up their positions, it was seen that Hallwood was playing right half, in place of Evans, who had moved to right hao.L H. Owen scored an eighth goal from a centre by Rowlands, and I shall have something to say about this point later. Griffiths: was working desperately, being quite the best man, on the side. He scorned to remain in his position at left half, and roamed all over the field, accom- plishing a vast amount of work and saving the 'Bay on numerous occasions. Under ordinary circumstances, it would have been an error to act in this fashion but the exigency of the situation warranted a departure from the usual style of play. Once Griffiths headed away when the ball was dropped; into an open goal, but after a breakaway, when Kay hit the side of the net, Tones worked down and round Morris, for H. Owen to force the ball into- the net. It would be a waste of space to go fully into de- tails concerning the remaining goals that were scored. Tones having sent up double figures, Hallwood went into goal once again. Soon Ro- berts hit the ball down in the penalty area, and the expression of innocence he assumed was lost on everybody, including the referee. H. Owen took the kick, but Hallwood saved. Later, how- ever, he cleverly tricked the custodian, and 'scored. The Bay attacked, and Hughes scored their second goal, Owen being greatly at fault. After saving finely, Hallwood' was beaten by Burns, and later bv Jones, the final poin/t being secured on time. Result: Bangor Reserves, 13 Colwyn Bay, 2. COMMENTS. There was a glorious sunset, but later the clouds gathered, and a star came out, though it was always light enough for play. It would save no good purpose to dweli upon the match itself. The Bay were outplayed as the score in. dicates, but with Hallwood in goal throughout the score would have been decreased. The Ban- gor forwards played a great game, even though the opposition was weak, and it is clear that the Reserves are a strong team—probable champ- ions, in fact. CONCERNING THE LINESMEN. I wonder whether it is possible for linesmen to smoke cigarettes and efficiently discharge the'lt" duties at one and the same time? From what I saw on Saturday, I very much doubt it. I contend that it is quite impossible for the game to be properly controlled unless the linesmen be I neutral. A single instance will suffice. Row- lands came racing along the touchline towards £ e Bay goal, when, at a point opposite the Press box the ball went right over the line, and we all ejaculated It's out." The Bangor linesman was running up, and from his position could not have failed to see that the ball had gone out I of play. But he did not signal, and the eighth goal resulted. Furthermore, as he was walking down the line, be favoured certain of the spec- tators with a knowing wink Later, he felt tired. and came and squatted on the steps of the stand One hears much about the inefficiency of referees. Why should they not be compelled to serve a probationary terms as linesmen,? But I suppose the obvious retort is that there is a dearth of referees on the Coast, besides which, the expense would be prohibitive.
AMATEUR CUP. LLANRWST v. LLANDUDNO AMATEUR. HONOURS EVEN FOR THE SECOND TIME. (BY INIGO.") Llandudno, journeyed to Llanrwst on Thurs- day, where for the second time they tried con- clusions with the Roosters for honours for the Amateur Cup. Both teams relied upon the same 'men as did duty at Llandudno the previous week, and lined out in the following order, in charge of Referee Slater, in a deluge of rain:- Llanrwst: Goal, Gillett; backs, A. Cart^ and W. Trevor Jones halves, Humphrey Ro- berts, R. b. iRichards, and France Williams; forwards, Chisholm, Howell Roberts, Cleeve, A. Richards, and Dennis Jones. Llandudno: Goal, Stallard; backs, J. H. Jones and W. Wynne; halves, J. Brown, T. Johnson, and (Harold Pearson forwards, W. A. Williams, Brookes-Evans, Johnny Williams, Bob Davies, and Jim Williams. Linesmen: Mr. J. Jenkins and Mr. David Owen. From the 'kick off Llandudno- at once broke away on (the left. Brookes-Evans and Jimmy Williams got well down the field, but were pulled up by Carter in the nick of time, and the ball was sent well luip the field, where Johnny Williams became possessed and started on his own, until an argument with R. D. Richards ended in Robert Davey getting the best of him. Yet .another rush by the visiting forwards, and Trevor was brought to ground by the swift centre-forward. Jim Williams shot into. Gillett's hands, who cleared. Play was transferred to the other end of the field, where Chisholtm forced a corner, and the game grew fast and furious. The Cormorants were going at a ter- rific pace. Trevor was obliged to kick out to save disaster, and from the throw in W. A. Williams sent behind. A foul against the Roosters gave the Cormorants a free kick, which John Henry Jones placed safely in the net. This was after a few minutes' play. The visitors kept up the pressure, and Brookes-Evans and Jim Williams both made attempts, their shots going wide of the mark. This was fol- lowed by a smart run by the Roosters' left wing, which compelled Jones to kick out.. The pres- sure was but temporary, and the Cormorants again pressed, Jim Williams sending in a good centre, which Carter cleared. The same player was sucoessful1 in dfealing with a visit by Johnny Williams a moment later. Play settled down in midifield until the visitors broke away, and Gil- lett ran out to, save. A corner followed', but no advantage was gained. The home- left wing was again conspicuous, and got well up, R. D. Richards .making the final shot a few feet wide of the mark. A move by the home forwards- Cleeve, Chisholm, and Howell Roberts—saw them get well up, when they were abruptly pulled up by Harold Pearson. This was quiokily followed by a sharp visit by the Cormorants' right wing, W. A. Williams -placing his com- rade offside. Dennis Jones took up the runn- ing, and in a twinkling tested- Stallard with a rasping shot, which he cleared, whilst Bob Da vies sent over the bar at the other end. W. A. Williams and Bob Davies made a desperate effort to get within shooting distance, a foul spoiling the move. After a short spell of press- ing by the home forwards the play again re- turned to the vicinity of Gillett, "where Bob Davies and Willie Arthur got close in but the Rooster was not asleep, and effected a fine save. The home left wing again got possession. Arthur Richards got well up the field, but hugged the ball rather too long, J. H. Jones kicking out of play. From the throw in Johnny Williams and Brookes-Evans dashed up the field, where, from a foul, the Roosters were given a free kick. R- D. Richards took the kick and equalised. The play continued fast, both, ends being visited in quick succession, and the defence hard pressed. The score at half time was Llanrwst, i Llandudno, 1. From the restart the Cormorants were (the first to attack. Gillett effected a fine save, and the Roosters replied 011 the left, where Arthur Richards banged against the side of the net. The Roosters kept up a pressure with consider- able determination, Pearson having to kick out of play. Richards on another visit sent across the goalmouth, where Stallard cleared.. Carter essayed a long drive, which Stallard handlLed out of dianger. The visitors now had a look in, and a rush by the forwards wrought matters near to the Roosters' goal, where the ball slipped through Gillett's hands but assistance was near, and disaster was averted. The game had now slowed down considerably. A run up to fieJld by the Cormorants say Johnny Williams and Brookes-Evans going the length of the pitch, and from a free kick Gillett cleared finely- Final: y Llanrwst, i Llandudno, 1.
COAST JUNIOR CUP. CARNARVON RESERVE v. PWLLHELI. SECOND ROUND RE-PLAY. (BY" OVALITE.") The above teams met at the Oval, Carnarvon, on Saturday last. They had previously met at Carnarvon, when the visitors proved victorious by two goals to nil. However, the tie was or- dered to be re-played, Pwllheli having played an ineligible man. Mr A. C. Slater, Llandud- no, refereed. The teams were as follows — Carnarvon Reserve Thompson, goal; W. H. Jones and Norton Williams, backs Harry Dav- ies, W. Hughes, and Lovell, halves; Charlie Francis, E. Williams, Hugh Jones, Wikinson, and Land1, forwards. Pwllheli: Artie Hughes, goal; T. J. Owen and O. E. Jones, backs; Willie Anthony, R. H. White, and Glyn Williams, halves; T. J. Wil- liams, J. H. Roberts, Saunders Williams, Llew White, and J. A. Roberts, forwards. Pwlllheli opened the attack, but Saunders Wil- liams sent past the post. Carnarvon retaliated, but offside spoilt their chances. Afterwards Willie Hughes passed to Hugh Jones, who touched the ball to Wilkinson. They wexe, how- ever, driven back, and Ellis Williams passed to Francis, who allowed the ball to roll out 01 pl'ay. Hugh Jones ran on his own, and O. 5,. Jones conceded a corner to relieve the pressure. Tommy Lovell caused some amusement by rob- bing three opponents whilst on the ground. Car- narvon pressed, but offside .spoilt their efforts. Thompson had to handle the ball ,and cleared well. Ellis Williams next scored, but the whistle had gone for offside. Pwllheli pressed, but Willie Hughes had the ball, an,, passed to Fran- cis. The latter passed to E. Williams, who forced a corner, which proved abortive. Two other corners were awarded the homesters, but both were cleared. J. H. Roberts ran down,, but over-ran the ball. Next, Hugh Jones was fouled in the dreaded area. He was entrusted with the kick, and scored. From the kick off, the ball came to Willie Hughes, who passed to E.Williams, but offside spoilt their efforts. The next minute Antfe Huighes saved a grand shot from Francis, and White next cleared from E. Williams. Carnar- von came again, and Llew White fell. Hugh Jones tested Artie Hughes, who fisted over the bar. Owen Jones cleared a dangerous raid by Carnarvon. Norton Williams passed' to Wilk'n- son., who gave the ball to Hugh Jones, the lat- ter scoring for Carnarvon. Carnarvon, 2; Pwllheli, o. Ellis Williams had hard lines in not scoring, the ball going over the bar. Carnarvon con- tinued to press, but could not augment the score. The homesters continually pressed during the second half. Land forced a corner, which was cleared. Wilkinson next brought Aintie Hughes to his knees. Charlie Francis next scored, a beautiful goal. Carnarvon continued to press. Land scoreo No,. 4 with a beauty at close quarters. The ball came to Hugh Jones, who scored No. 5 for Car- narvon. Carnarvon continued to press, and time was called with the final result reading Carnarvon, 5 Pwllheli, o. NOTES. Pwllheli had a scholar from the County School in goal, and he played very well. Experience will make a fine player of him. R. H. White also played a fine game for Pwllheli. Carnarvon were a fine team. Thompson, in goal, was a treat. The backs were excellent, Norton Williams having the making of a fine back in him. Willie Hughes was, the pick of the haf-back line. Hugh Jones, if anything was too unselfish. He is a dashing player. Francis ought to be more steady. Land, Wilkinson, and E Williams played well. Well done, Camar. von. The best team won on their merits.
-e8lllC" SCHOOLBOY MATCH. WREXHAM v. EVERTON. On Saturday the Liverpool and Wrexham boys played their English Shield game on, the Ever- ton Club s fine enclosure, before a fair number of spectators. At first it seemed as if the local boys were going to carry all before them, and they made repeated attacks on the W7rexham goal, but the defence was splendid. At last Newby, centre-forward, got through for Liver- pool and scored a fine goal. The Welsh boys immediately broke away, and in saying from Jones, centre-forward, the Liverpool goalkeeper simply pushed the ball out and fell in a struggle with Jones for possession. Green, Wrexham's outside right, was lying near and simply tapped the ball into the empty goal and equalised the scores. A penalty was awarded Wrexham, and Trevor Jones, Wrexham's International left back and captain, fired in a terrific shot and put the Welsh boys ahead. Play was exciting in the second half. Five minutes from, the end Liver. pool put on pressure, and a fast shot by Reeves, .centre-half, was put into. his own goal by Trevor Jones. 'The replay will be at Wrexham. The vYrexham team was:—Goal, F. Roberts (Gres- ford National) backs, E. Davies (Pentre Coun- cil) and T. Jones (Brynteg Council) half backs, A. Smith (Brymbo National), C. A. Williams (LIanrwst National), and C. E. Cheetham (Wrex- ham Council) forwards, J. Green (Brymbo Na- tional), R. J. Parrv (Johnstown Council), H. Jones (Llanrwst National), R. G.

FOOTBALL CHIPS. (BY VIGILANT.") That Bangor Reserves were iin excelsis at home on Saturday, when they trounced the Colwyn Bay Gulls by 13-2. Marvellous! Colwyn Bay is at least consistent in losing handsomely. Play up, Colwyn Bay! That the Gulls would have been heavily de- feated in any case; but were unfortunate in being deprived of Hallwood's services for a lengthy period. That Hallwood, to give him his due, is the one member of the team who shows good form match after match. Consistency, thy name is Hall wood! That Stanley's goal was reminiscent of his best efforts. That the other players on the side did not shine. That the Bangor forwards were quite dazzling That Rowlands and Edgar Lloyd Jones are really brilliant wingers. That the inside men—.Hands, Hughie Owen, and Burns—are very clever forwards, and also very effective in front of goal. That the half-back line is best described by the term solid." That the backs were not severely tested, but nevertheless hardly seemed at ease. That- Ted Owen, after saving well in the first half, gave away a goal in the second. That Hands' first appearance for Bangor was a success, and he was the only hands in the game. That he may figure in the Combination team. That there was great jubiliation on the part of the occupants of the stand at half time, when it was announced that Bangor were leading at Denbigh by three goals to nil. That in the evening, when it was found that Bangor had lost by the odd goal in five, diligent search was made for the humourists who had drawn on their imagination. That Llandudno Amateurs at Llanrwst were like sparkling jewels in their play to the duel stones exhibition of the previous Saturday. That I hope my tips" were somewhat acted upon. That there are very prejudiced football critics in Llanrwst. That space does not allow me to point out a certain scribe's attempt to make a black a white- and vice versa. That the Roosters will again be welcomed at Llandudno on Saturday, when: they meet the Cormorants for the third time in the Welsh Amateur Cup. Conway are waiting the result, with Llanrwst for preference as winners. ui course. It's an easy job. But what price the gate ? De monish is what we want. That I hope Johnny Williams will return to the fold on Saturday. Exercise those new Llan. rwst boots, Tack. Kelly will be there. That Llandudno, has been in luck's way with cup draws this season. Quite a reversal of last season's ill luck. That Llandudno and Pwllheli will make ex- cellent semi-finalists- for the Coast Senior Cup at Bangor. Both teams play a similar game. That Conway are not enthusiastic about going tor the chemical town of Flint. Buck up, ana don't be chicken-hearted. A Jackdaw should be a tough bird. Peck away, you beggars, peck away! Auntie's soup is as good as ever,. And try rook pie as well. Marle is full of them Caw! Caw!! That Holyhead made a good display at Llan- dudno, and fully deserved their one point. That I hope the genial Chairman of the League has now recovered from the "flu." That Mr. R. D. Richards is universally popu- lar, for he combines the true gentlemanly in- stincts with true sportsmanship. That the League is fortunate in having such a zealous gentleman as chairman. That Holyhead.'s Collier reminded one of old times. How he smiled in true Collierian style— well known in Llandudno when in greatest diffi- culty. Other goalies please copy. That Holyhead's backs are huge in defending. A little less vigour when putting into touch would improve them. That W. T. Jones has always been a favourite of mine, and be looked as athletic and a picture of good physique as ever. He is a model player That Louis Jones and Dick Ellis are his col- leagues, and good plodders. That the two Johnnies of the Jones ilk-Wallis and London—are nimble outside men. and are great opportunists. That Hughie Williams: is developing into a good pivot. That R. C. Jones emulates his brother W. T. in clean methods, and will make a good fellow. That Salisbury Owen makes up a good quintette. That Holyhead has young blood of a very promising nature. Pob Iwc, Caergybi. That I have not much praise for Llandudno. That Johnson is improving. That I hope to see better form on Saturday. That my advise upon playing should be re- read for Saturday's match. That I congratulate the Thrushes of Denbigh in being able to secure two points, and that at the expense of Bangor in the Combination. One good turn deserves another. That E. E. Davies has returned to form. That Berwvn is shining greatly. That Tom Albert is also in g'ay trim. That I should like to see the Thrushes suc- ceed. That I wish them every happiness in their first season in the Com. That it has taken a Welsh team to lower the colours of Crewe Alexandra at last. That the team was good old Connah's Quay at home. Bravo That I congratulate the Quayites upon their performance. That Grenville Morris, of Notts Forest, is a Welshman that football Wales is proud off. Th3t ithe classic Gren." will receive his second benefit this season after ten years' service.
North Wales Hockey Association. TEAMS FOR EAST v. WEST. The Selection Committee of the North Wales Hockey Association at Rhyl on Friday night se- lected the following players for the East v. West hockey match, which will be played at Llan. dudno on Saturday, December isth:- North-east Wales: Goal, J. Viaic-ent (Buck- ley) left back, W. Marsden (Buckley); right back. E. H. Capper (Wrexham) left half, A. M. Powell (Newtown) centre-half, G. Parry-Jones (Ruthin) right half, F. J. Whitehouse (Wrex- ham) centre-forward, Dr. M. oavies (Colwyn); left inside, W.

I "Vigilant's" Post Bag. M.J." (Abergele).—Yes, Councillor Purdy is I the treasurer of the North Wales Coast League. It is gratifying to think what a deal of interest Mr. Purdy takes in local sports. He is a real sport himself, and has proved a good friend to the Colwyn Bay team. Perplexed (Carnarvon).—The two cups played for under the auspices of the North Wales Coast Association are called the Amateur Cup and the Coast Junior Cup. The national cups under the auspices of the Football Associa- tion of Wales are called' the Welsh Senior Cup and the Welsh Amateur Cup It is confusing to those who are not' well versed in cup history to find the Junior Cup of the Welsh Association called the Welsh Amateur Cup, whilst the Sen- ior Cup of the North Wales Coast is called the Amateur Cup. The thing wants remedying and simplifying. NNeather Permitting (Llandudno).—You have my sympathy in the bad luck which has at. tended the two cup-ties played by Llandudno and Llanrwst. It was vile on both occasions. Yes, I had he-aid of a prominent official of the Roosters' Club who has earned for himself & name which will go down in football posterity as Weather Permitting." The strange thing about the matter is that in such a wet place as Llanrwst—the cistern of the Vale of Conway- that there should be found any fair weather officials. A certain Rooster official funked in going to Llandudno with the team because the glass was going down, and some wag wrote under his name on the notice board that he would be sure to go "Wieiather permitting." The weather did not permit, and the hero did not go. Hence a rise to fame that will be un- aieable. Noble fellow. Narcotic (LLandudno).-If you knew how badly off the Llanrwst Club is for spondu- licks you would not expect coffee at half-time. The Club can't afford it. No "spons," no coffee! Where is the large-hearted (not large-mouthed) Rooster supporters that will gam a name by supplying such a want? Bluebottle (Conway).—You should know very well that Mr. Hughes, of these offices' on the Conway Quay, is Secretary for the Jackdaws. I don't think you should go so far as to say that the Blues have not got a proper team. Any fool can find fault, but it takes a clever man to find a remedy, and if you think Tom Jones is hanging anywhere between Ban- gOT and Conway why not give Mr. Hughies some suggestion direct as to the remedy for the defects you so flippantly speak of? J. Brown (Deganwy).—" Fidelis means, in vulgar English, faithful. The writer under this nom-de-plume would not feel flattered if he tliought you took him for a foreigner. He is a Lancashire man, and always in the pink of condition. I have an appreciation of his football writings, but you enlighten me with surprise when you say he is a boaster in boxing. I have never criticised his writings to that ex- tent. Why do you mix football with boxing? Isn't one of them enough to deal with at a time?
Princely Gift to Bangor College. GENEROSITY OF MR. PRITCHARD-JONES. A London writer in Saturday's Manchester Guardian savs Mr. Lloyd George is in the happy position of being able, without further recourse to Treasury grants, to announce to the Building Committee of the University College of North Wales, Ban- gor, a princely donation which will enable them at once to proceed with the building of the great hall of the College. Some twelve months ago, when the University of Wales conferred upon the Chancellor of the Exchequer the degree of D.C.L., Mr. Lloyd George made a strong appeal to Welshmen to second the etforts of the Gov- ernment on behalf of the collegiate institutions of Wales. He has now induced Mr. J. Prichard-Jones, of London and Newborough, to offer to the college authorities a contribution which will place them in a position to complete the great hall forthwith. The estimated cost of the hall is between Z17,000 and £ 18,000, and between £ 2,000 and ^3,000 will be saved if the I work is undertaken while the present contract is running. A sum, therefore, of 1"15,000 or there- abouts. is required. Mr. Prichard-Jones has al- ready subscribed £3,000 to the building fund, and he now offers to contribute a further sum of £ 12,000 so as to cover, the cost of the great hall. Mr. Lloyd George and Mr. Herbert Lewis (who was associated with him in the matter) are to be heartily congratulated on the extremely pleasant announcement they are thus able to make. TERMS OF MR. PRICHARD-JONES'S GIFT. Mr. Prichard-Jones's handsome contribution to the building fund of the. University Col-Lege of North Wales, Bangor, was communicated by the Chancellor of the Exchequer to Sir Harry Reichel, the Principal of the College, in the following terms — Dear Sir Harry Reichel,—You may remember that on the occasion when I had the honour of receiving the degree of D.C.L. from the Uni- versity of Wales, held at Bangor, I made an appeal to our countrymen to second the efforts of the Government on behalf of the great col- legiate institutions of Wales. It is a great pleasure to me now to be able to announce that I have received a communication from Mr. J. Prichard-Jones, in which he states that he has decided to offer to the College authorities, through myself, a contribution of C12,000, pay- able in such instalments as may be decided upon. He wishes this sum, together with the £ 3,000 which he has already subscribed, to be devoted to the construction of the great hall which is contemplated in the final scheme for the University College at Bangor, and he hopes that it may be possible to arrange for the hall to be called the Prichard-Jones Hall." Mr. Prichard-Jones tells me that he believes that £ 15,000 is the sum estimated to cover the total cost of the erection of the hall, but I understand that if a further small call should be made upon his generosity it is not unlikely that he would be able and willing to meet it. I know you will be glad to receive this good news, and I I am sure you will join with me in the high ap- preciation which I feel for the munificent liber- ality which Mr. Prichard-Jones has always shown in the cause of Welsh education.—Yours &c., D. LLOYD GEORGE.
Conway Servant Girl in Trouble. A young servant girl, 21 years of age, named Ellen Roberts, and residing at Tai Newydd, Ty'nygroes, was charged at the Conway Police Court on Monday with stealing a gold ring, valued at £ 3, the. property of Mr. T. O. Mor- gan, Pantygraianog. It was stated for the prosecution that the defendant was employed at Pantygraianog as a servant girl for about ten days, when she sud- denly disappeared, and the ring also was miss- ing. Mr. Morgan identified the ring produced, and valued it at between 6,1 and /4. On the Thurs- day prior to the Friday that the girl left the ring was on his dressing table. He received a reference with the girl. He should like to say that he had received a letter from her telling them not to trouble to send a policeman, as she was sending the ring back. She was very sorry for what she had done, and if he would take her back She would promise to be a good girl. P.C. Jones, Ty'nygroes, said he called at the defendant's house, and found her wearing the stolen ring. She said she found it in the back of Pantygraianog, and intended taking it back. To the charge of stealing it she made no reply. The Magistrates' Clerk charged the defendant, and she plleaded guilty. She was told what a serious thing it was and was given a severe warning, and the magistrates ultimately bound her over in the sum, of 420 and one surety of r,, to be of good behaviour.
