COAST SENIOR LEAGUE. LLANRWST v. COLWYN BAY. ANOTHER TWO POINTS FOR THE ROOSTERS. (BY INIGO.") Colwyn. Bay visited Llanrwst on Monday. The ground was heavy and slippery, and a drizzle of rain fell throughout the game. The referee, Mr. Ell.,s,H-Lighes, Fesiiniog. Llanrwst, goal, Gillett; backs, Cecil Morgan, W. Trevor Jones; halves, Humphrey Roberts, R. W. Richards, France Williams forwards, Chiuholm, Howell Roberts, Cleeve, W. Thos. Jones, Dennis R. Jones. Colwyn Bay: Goal, ITallwoo-d backs, T. Wynne Ellis, O. E.' Williams; halves, C. Mc Intyre, W. E. Roberts, Ned Griffiths; forwards, Hugh P. Evans, T. Anderson, Charlie Adamson, Stanley Hughes, J, P. H ue-hes. It was plain that the Roosters' attack had more idling (than their opponents. Whenever they got into the shooting area the visitors' de- fence was hard pressed. CinshoLin scored after some good play. A visit to Gillekt saw him compelled to' give' a corner, followed^ by a second, which was .safely negotiated. Chisholm, healing all opposition, got in a lovely sihot, which Hall wood cleverly saved. A terrific on- slaught on the Bay goal saw Denanis Jones bang the ball across the goiajknohth to. Chisholm, who in turn gave to W. T. Jones, the latter trinping it on the goal line, Dennis Jones finishing by banging against the net, securing number two for the"Roosters. Gillett cleared a si-iot by An- derson. Chisholm at the other end missed the mark by inches, whilst the home custodian was early called upon, and cleared a difficult shot, and the home forwards got going, the whole quintette working well, Chisholtm hesitating slightly in front of gotal, lost possession, but the ball being kept in close proximity to Hall wood, W. T. Tones baffled the custodian for the third1 time. A couple of visits to Gililett, the Rooster quickly replied, and Hallwood was again in the thick of it, and wondeirously did he work, dteal- ang with sihot after sihot in a masterly manner. Half time was signalled with the score Elanrw'st, 3; Colwyn Bay, o. The Roosters at the opening of the second half at onoe showed an aggressive atititudie, France and Chisholm doing good work, but the Bay eventually got possession and forced a comer. The pfocini?. however, was faulty, and no ad- vantage gained. The Roosters gradually but determinedly worked the ball to the Bay end, where Dennis Jonuas seinit over the bar. R. D. Richards a minute later sent in a long punt, wihich seemed to give Hallwood considerable trouble. W. T. Jones was the next to test the custodian., and he was agailin, triumphant, and, placing the ball weill li" the field, the Bayites commenced an attack wihich Morgan cleared.. Crfilleitt, however, was soon called upon, whSilst HallwOiod was the object, at the other end, of a terrific onslaught, ending in Dennis Jones regis- tering the fourth goal. The home side slackened, and the visitors quickly took advantage. Gillett, running out to. save, was badly beaten, and the Bayites scored number one. This was followed by a determined attack, which quickly yielded another goal. This brought the Roosters to themselves, and from this to the end had much the best of the plav, Dennis Jones adding a fifth goal and Howell Roberts a sixth, the game ending with the score Llanrwst, 6; Colwyn .-ay, 2. COMMENTS. Bravo, Hallwood, for fine clearances. Ellis a mighty defender, well assisted1 by O. E. Ned, Griffiths was the pick of the halves, whilst the forwards, although not by any means bril- liant, played doggedly, and' some nippy runs were made by both wings. For the home side, Gillett made a mistake in leaving his dhtarge when Morgan was close to hand. This accidefnt later was much to. be re- gretted, and we hope to find him all right on Saturday. The backs were not so safe, but the haVes were a real treat, and not a better line can be found in the League. The forwards were slightly mixed'. W. T. Jones is a worker and a .scorer, and he and Dennis did vood work, as also did Chisholm and Howell, and Cleeve pivoted safely.
FRIENDLY MATCHES. COLWYN BAY CELTS v. COLWYN BAY WEDNESDAYS. On Christmais Day the above teams encoun- tered on the Victoria Park ground, of which they are joint lessees,. The holidays had sadly deotebed the ranks of the Wednesdays, who in, consequence were obliged to call on several re- serves. Th Celts, however, were pretty well at full strength, amd ihe promise of a fast and ex- citing game was thoroughly upheld. Teams: — Celts: D. LI. Jones, goal; J. K. Jones and E. R. Jones, backs; D. Roberts, Llew Roberts captain), and W. T. Hoskins, half backs; R. Williams, T. Parry, E. Lunt, R. Jones, and W. jo nags, forwards. Wedtnasdays: W. Clutton, goal; C. Golds- worthy and J. H. Beamer, backs; P. Price, J. Williams, and Bob Jones, half backs; R. O. Joraos, J. Anderson, E. J. Daivies, Hughie Hughes (captain), and O. T. Jones, forwards. Referee: Mr. Hugh Heap, Colwyn, Bay. The ground was in a very treacherous condi- tion, and both teams experienced great difficulty in securing a foothold. In the first half the Wednesdays scored twice to their opponents' onoe, the Celts finding the net from a penalty kick, the granting of which was keenly contested by the Wednesday players. Upon changing ends the Celts set to work in determined style, and five minutes from the close they ware, leading by three goails to two. Amid considerable ex- citement the Wednesdays attacked hotly, and Hughie Hughes, finding the net, equalised mat- ters. Fair form was shown by both sides, and though the Wednesdays were the heavier and stranger team, it would have no sur- prise had the Celts snatched a victory. The at- tendance was a veiry satisfactory one, whilst the game was contested in the best possible .spirit.

RHOS ST. TRILLO v. LLANDUDNO WEDNESDAYS. Tlbeisa teams met on, the Council Field, Llan- dudno, on Monday. The as a result of a heavy rainfall before the match, was in a very bad condition. The Saints made few al- terations in the team, which played on the Satur- day. Rhos St. Trillo J. Berts, goal; P. Arundale and A. Downes (captain), backs Alf. Jones, S. Arundale, and G. P. Hughes, halves; R. Hughes, E. Tucker, E. Phillips, R. Ellis, (and Abel Jones, forwards. ti ■> The Sainfe) won the toss and elected to play towards the sea with the rain at their backs. The Wednesdays kicked off before a fair at- tendance, and; the Saints at once took up the attack. It was mot long before they were ahead, E. Phillips scoring with. a shot which gave the custodian no chance. The Saints were now playing ten. men, as their captain had not ar- rived. The Wednesdays made an attack on the Saints' goal, but Bents; was. too smart for them. Soon after this Dowries turned up, and R. Hughes scored number twoi for the Saints. Play was very even after this, each end being visited in turn. At the interval Rhos were leading by two clear goals. The Saints opened play in the second moiety in a heavy shower. This half Rhos played much better, and in a short time E. Phillips put them further ahead. The Wednesdays' forwards could not pass the visitors' defence, who were playing a spionidid game. The Saints were now enjoy- in^ the greater part of the play, and E. Phil- lips, with a good shot, scored the best goal of the match. At last the Wednesdays got going, and after a struggle in. goal they scored their only point. But the Saints, not to be denied, want ahead, and just before time Abel Jones scored number five. Rhos thus won a good game by five goals to one. NOTES. J. Berts, for the Saints, is making great ad- vances as a goalkeeper. He is very sure in his clearances. The backs and halves have played two good games during the holidays. Only once have they allowed their opponents to score. Thel forwards have done very well, scoring no fewer than ten goals.
LLANFAIRFECHAN v. PENMAENMAWR RANGERS. On Xmas afte-rnoon a match was played at Bryn-y--Neuadd/, LHanfadrfechan, between the Penimaenmawr Rangers and the local team. It being a Charity Match for the relief of the poor of Llanfairfechan, the crowd was large. At 2-45, Referee Edward Parry, started the game going, and R. J. H-aghes of Llan was mak- ing tracks for goal, when Will Edwards, com- monly called Buller," fouled him. The game was, very fast, both gotaiMes being called upon often. At last, Morris, of Penmaenmawr, sent in a stinger which beat Thomas Griffiths alto- gether. Soon. after, a second was obtained, Thomas being to blame for leaving his goal. Things looked black for Llanfair, and Penimaen- mawr still keeping up their pressure wSiari R. J. Hughes went off on his own and obtained his de- sire. Half-time., Penmaenmawr, 2; Llanfair- fechan, 1. It was after tihe interval that the home team settled down, and immediately the second goal was notched by Atherton. The game was now all at the Penmaenmawr goal. The final read- Penmaenmawr, 2; Llanfair 2.

■! I ■fl T TTHniT tT I Vigilant's Postbag. I Uncle (Conway).—I have received the fol- lowing epistle from. "Uncle" Lloyd, of Con- way, which speaks for itselfConway, Christmas Day. Mr. Vigilant,—My attention has been drawn to your boasting remarks as to your faith in —ndudno Amateurs winning the Coast Senior Cup this season. I should like to know where you get your authority from for such a confidential statement. The very idea of it! Where does Conway come in? My con- ¡ science, I like your nerve, too.. You must I, fancy we are absolutely no good in the historic town of Conway when you say such a thing. Do you not give the Jackdaws a sinell of a chance of snuffing the Flint team? Queerer things are possible, my dear sir. Oh dear, And don't you forget it. I am going to be as bold as you-p-haps indeed bolder,—and say Ii it is the Jackdiaiws who are going to make up for last season's misfortune. You may sneer as you like about soup and mussels for training, but the Black Ones are goin, to do the trick. You said in your last issue that Tom Edwards wore a wry face at Llandudino. Well, as I Was not there, and cannot contradict it, all I have to say is he will have a merry one, and your Uncie,' too, when that cup comes to Conwiay. And the band will play asi it never played be- I fore. Ask WIlsoTi.-Yours very truly, Uncle Lloyd." I am afraid Uncle is as much enamoured of Conway's prospects Off the cup as I am per- haps of Llandudno's. As it is a free country, it is perhaps as well that we have some enthusi- asts for the. respective teams. And Conway is not Avithout the need of it, either. « Sarcasm (Talycafn).—I think your sugges- tion that LLew Parry, of Conway, and Stallard, of Llandudno, should wear high-heeled boots in »oal smacks very much of an attempt on your part to< be sarcastic. Boifh are sterling cus- todians, and whilst they both could do perhaps with an inch or two in stature, the hi-h shots that have passed either have been very few. I think vour remarks very wanting in good tasite. Humphrey (Rhyl).—I do not know where IT Sammy Brookes is at present; but he is said to be somewhere in America. He was a great favourite with the Rlhylites in its best days, and wiaa certainly one of the very best halves to be seen in Wales. For one so small in statue, it was marvellous what performances he was able ve to do. He may well, bel called the Wedlock of Wales. Yes, he was an international against many years ago. IVeeiL-ly Readetr" (Llandudno).—It is with much gratification! that I heard from the Editor of your appreciative letter, which appears in an- other column. It is most encouraging to receive such evidence of the esteem in which I am held personally and the interest with which this column is followed by my readers. You may rest assured. that as hereitOfPore we shall exert all our influence to support club officials in their endeavours to make the giame in North Wales a wholesome sport.

That tihe boys had a jolly time down by the sea. That Holyhead had a holiday crowd of Sea- larks turn, out toi see the Black 'Uns. That the gate, I understand, was £18. That 0. B. Careful was amongst the forwards. That Edwards is a fine centre-forward, and was, as he usually is on the Oval, in fine form. That Holyhead are improving wonderfully. That the win gave hfupie delight to the crowd and s&-miulated the Christmas pudding-taxed di- gestion. That there was another fine crowd at Bangor to watch the Canaries try conclusions wdtth the Homers in a League match. That it appeared.1 as though the Yelllow 'Uns would lead the Homers a dance, for they were one ahead of Bangor at half time That the Bangorians did what they have often dome before, won. handsomely. Handsome is that handsome does." Eh? That I am' informed the gate was about £33. things are looking up. Bravo, indeed That the Canaries are getting their wings plucked a bit this season. That it took Llandudno all their time to get two points out of Colwyn Bay on Christmas Day at Llandudno;, and the long-necked ones only won by the merest possible margin-I-a. That the Gulls are setting their house in order. Hear, hear.

Jones' picture in our Last issue was much praised. That tihe geniail Fred was also pleased. That someone on, the Llandudno ground on Christmas day revived the old wheeze Chase me! Could it be truly I wonder. That Brymbo has joined the Combination and taken over Birkenhead's engagements. That they have a stiff away task. That th-edr, appearance ini Bangor on Saturday was most encouraging. That they are a fine, strong, clever, and, I understand, captained, by Horace Blew, the Welsh international. That they are attired in, red; jerseys and white pants, and look fine when they turn out to- gether. That they played a rattling good game, and worked well up to the vicinity of Williams, but were not so smart in fronlt of goal as one~ would wish. That the ground was totally uiitfit for anyone to judge a team. It was simply a quagmire. And how the Bangor,ians revelled in it. That the rain fell piitalessily^ upon the scene, adding misery upon misery, upon, what was sup- posed to, be football. That I was very pleased myself with the tall centre half which Brymbo have. That he was very effetctilve in his work, and looked well as the central figure on the arena. That I think much more will be heard of the Colliers before the season is much older. That I am sure the Bangor exchequer has been splendidly replenished recently. That Carnarvon, turned the tables on the Homers on Monday for the defeat the Canaries received at Bangor on the previous Saturday. That the result in each case was 3-1. That there was not such a big gate in. Carnar- von as was expected owing to the weather. That Llandudno Reserves came a cropper again at Menai Bridge on Monday. That the Reserves have yet to win their first match. JI That someone has asked is it to be won on Saturday next in the cup-tie. That it would be an auspicious opening of the new year. It would be a sort of clenig." That Llandudno Amateurs, had a fruitless journey to Pwllheli on Boxing Day. That the game had, (to be abandoned with Pwllheli leading 1-0. That the rain was ptiless and torrential. That it is hard lines on toe 'Chers to have to make thiei journey again, not only on account .so of expense, but also because of sparing appropri- ate dates. That it was hoped that the match with Pwll- heli would have proved somewhat of a prelimin- any canter with. the Penguins in view of the semi-finail for the Coast Cup, which is to be played between the teams at Bangor in February. That the Combination matches between Den- bigh and Rhyl have proved real battles royal, in more senses than one. That the Denbigh Thrushes, on the whole, proved superior to the .Sandimaxtins of Rhyl. That there is no doubt tfhat the Thrushes, and also the Sandmartins, arle undergoing a levelling-up prooess. That the enthusiasm at each match was great, and in many cases rowdy. A holiday crowd has boundless enrthusiastics." That it was rumoured by a little bird that partisanship ran very high—oh so high That Willie Wynne was able to go about on Boxing Day. That he got many a Gwyliau llawen." That his many friends will be glad to see him back in his old place. That I wish the 'Chers would take my .^advice in playing the ball more, and have W»s 'of the man-watching. That it would pay weill. That it is worth trying. Remember that I am backing you up for the Coast Cup. That you must certainly give me a good run for my money Thait I think the 'Chers are able, if only will- ing. That it would be a crowning event in Harold Pearson's football career and his captainship to have that cup in Llandudno. That I would ask my leaders to peruse Uncle's letter re the cup in the Post-bag column. That wherever Uncle lives, ne generally puts I in all he knows in favour of the team of that town. That a terrible top-roofer sneeze of Uncle's m High-street, Bangor, disclosed his. identity. That the pressmen at Bangor on Monday were nicely nestled in a packed stand. That the ducky weather damped everyone. That the Wednesday League is progressing splendidly.
-c eo North Wales Football Association. WHAT IS AN AMATEUR ? The North Wales Football Association ap- pointed a special Commission to go into allega- tions of professionalism against the Denbigh Town Club, and the inquiry was held at Rhyl on Wednesday night last week. Mr. R. J. Hughes, of Penmaenmawr, presided. The Rhyl Grange Club protested against the cup-tie match in the second round of the North Wales Amateur Cup, being awarded to Denbigh, upon the grounds that the goalposts were not of the regulation height, that one player resided out of the district, and that two players received payment for services, and so were not amateurs. The case for Rhyl was put before the Commission by Mr. Hughes, secretary of the Rhyl club, and he called evidence to show that some of the Den- bigh players admitted that they had received payment for loss of time. Mr. Clough, chairman of the Denbigh club, denied the charges, but readily admitted that he had, out of his own pocket, given to four players small sums to recoup their loss of time in Com- bination matches. He denied that they had ever received one penny for cup-ties. The Commission decided that the protest as to the height of the goalposts failed, as it was not handed in on the field in writing. As to the radius protest, the matter was deferred. With regard to the charge of professionalism against amateur players, it was decided that four of the Denbigh players were unregistered professionals through having received payment over and above railway fares and hotel expenses, and the Commission awarded the match to the Rhyl Grange. It was decided to report four of the Denbigh players and the Chairman of the club to the Welsh Association, although it was held was held that the payment of money had not been done with any intention of breaking the rules. Mr. Clough expressed great surprise at the de- cision of the Commission, and said that he would certainly protest against it to the Welsh Associa- tion. He added that it was a regular practice throughout North Wales for supporters of clubs to give money to players who were out of work or who lost time. He contended that pri- vate individuals could do what they liked, and that such gifts could not make amateurs into professionals.

The Eloquent Chancellor. MR. LLOYD GEORGE'S WELSH TOUR. GRACEFUL TRIBUTE TO HIS OPPONENT. Mr. Lloyd George was splendid at Cardiff, Swansea, and Llanelly, at each of which towns he was given a magnificent reception. Needless to say, his speeches there created a profound im- pression throughout the country. Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd George travelled from Llanelly to Pwllheli on Thursday, and all along the route were received with tremendous en- thusiasm. The first stage of the journey, to Aberystwyth, was performed by motor car. A MOTOR MISHAP. At a village in Cardiganshire a mishap occurred to the motor car, and of course the Chancellor made use of the incident to point a political moral to the large crowd who gathered round him and demanded a speech. Addressing the crowd from his motor car the Chancellor said that his car swerved into the fence and had been delayed, but the people had speedily helped him on his way. The Liberal car in Parliament had been obstructed on its way to the House of Lords. He asked them to re- move that obstruction by returning Mr. Vaughan Davies by a greater majority than ever. THE DAYS OF COERCION RE-CALLED. At Aberystwyth the Chancellor was received by Mr. Vaughan Davies, M.P., the Liberal candi- date for Cardiganshire. Addressing a crowd of over 1,000 persons from the steps of the railway station, the Chancellor said Liberalism was more alive now than ever,

He was a conspicuous member of all public bodies in Merioneth, and was a prominent Lib- eral and Nonconformist. He was 80 years of age. His eldest son is the Rev. Puleston Jones, Pwllheli. The funeral took place on Monday at Christ Church, Bala.
I Popular Conway Wedding. EVANS-DOUGALL. Tt On Tuesday morning a very popular wedding took place in the Carmel C.M. chapel, Conway, the contracting parties being Mr. Arthur Llew- elyn Evans, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Owen Evans, High-street, and Miss Hannah Jane (Hettie), the eldest daughter of Mrs. Dougall, of the Boot Inn, Lancaster-square. The young couple are very well known in the town and the neighbourhood, both having done excellent work in the teaching profession. Mr. Evans was for some years assistant master at the Llan- dudno Junction Council School, where he was well-liked by both pupils and parents, and re- cently he was appointed headmaster of the Car- mel School, near Holywell. Miss Dougall was also very popular with her pupils in the Infants' school at Conway. Both were very faithful members of the Carmel C.M. chapel. The chapel, on Tuesday morning, was well filled with friends and well-wishers, and as the bride, leaning on the arm of her uncle, Mr. T. Rogers Jones, C.C., Llanrwst, who gave her away, a wedding march was played on the organ by Mr. W. R. Jones. The bride was beautifully attired in a handsome gown of ivory silk santor, trimmed with real lace and silver trimmings. The skirt had a panel of lace edged with silver trimming and bordering the hem were true lovers' knots. The gown was mounted on silk and chiffon. She also wore a beautiful gold locket and chain, the gift of her mother. The bridesmaids were Miss Maggie Dougall, Dublin (cousin of the bride), and Miss Evelyn Evans (sister of the bridegroom), both of whom looked tremely pretty in mole coloured costumes faced with rose shade, and wearing black hats trimmed with rose colour. The best man was Mr. Her- bert O. Evans (brother of the bridegroom), who was assisted by Mr. Tudwal Dorkins. The ser- vice was conducted by the Rev. T. Gwynedd Roberts, assisted by the Rev. Edward Parry, Carmel, Holywell, and before the Registrar, Mr. Thomas Abram. After the ceremony, and as the young couple proceeded down the aisle, the wedding march was again played, and outside the sacred edi- fice there was a large concourse of people, who showered their congratulations on the young couple. The wedding party adjourned to the Grosvenor Restaurant, where an excellent breakfast had been prepared-indeed it was a credit to Mr. Fred Jones, the caterer. The bride and bridegroom were toasted in felicitous terms by the Rev. Gwynedd Roberts, and short ad- dresses were also delivered by the Rev. Edward Parry, Messrs. T. Rogers Jones, and Owen Evans. Later in the day, the happy couple left en route for London, where the honeymoon is being spent. The bride travelled in an amethyst coloured costume trimmed with black, and a hat to match. She also wore beautiful grey squirrel furs, the gift of the bridegroom. They were given a very hearty send off. May their uniting be one of happiness and prosperity. LIST OF PRESENTS.

In a short time E. Jones, with a grand shot, scored the second for Rhos, who were now try- ing a great game. E. Jones again scored, and before time R. Hughes and E. Jones added further points. Just before time Rhos were awarded a penalty. A. Dowries was entrusted with it, but shot at the goalkeeper. Rhos thus won a poor gaane by five goials, to' nil.
and there was every prospect that they were going to have a glorious victory. He had no fear in regard to Cardiganshire. If every con- stituency was like Cardiganshire there would not be a single Tory in the House of Commons, Car- diganshire was the county that delivered the first blow to the power of feudalism in this land. It was through the sufferings of the farmers of Cardiganshire that they won the Ballot Act. (Cheers.) That was a great blow to intimida- tion, and by it the very foundation of terrorism was taken away, and the power of feudalism in Wales collapsed. They had now come to the stage when they had to deliver the second blow to feudalism. They had driven it out of the polling booth and from off the hustings, and they were now going to drive it out of its citadel in the House of the Lords. (Cheers.) That was their last citadel. He was told they were going to have a fight in Cardiganshire, a sham fight. (A Voice Beer fight," and laughter.) THE FIGHT IN MERIONETH. When Mr. Lloyd George's train stopped at Barmouth station a crowd immediately assem- bled in front of his carriage, cheering and asking for a speech. The Chancellor responded by urging his hearers to work their hardest to re- turn Mr. Haydn Jones for Merioneth by an over- whelming majority. The present crisis was most important for the democracy of Wales. He was sure the Liberals of Merioneth would ac- quit themselves now as in the past, and be true to themselves. MR. VINCENT AN HONOURABLE FIGHTER." Mr. Lloyd George missed a train connection in consequence of his motor mishap, and did not arrive at his Pwllheli meeting until half-past eight. He was received with tremendous cheer- ing. Speaking in Welsh, he said he had come to meet his friends at Pwllheli before the Christmas holidays, but he wanted to speak to them in the absence of the gentlemen of the Press. (Laugh- ter.) He saw his name so often in the papers nowadays that he hoped they would be content to do without it for once at any rate. (Laugh- ter, and cries It is impossible.") The Chancellor continued in Welsh and de- livered a stirring address, which was loudly ap- plauded. In the course of his speech Mr. Lloyd George paid a graceful tribute to his opponent, Mr. Vin- cent, who, he said, was a personal friend of his, an honourable fighter, and a conscientious Tory. Asked to say a few words in English before the end of his speech, he said it was a great conflict. They were not merely fighting for progress, but were fighting against reaction. They were fighting against a claim which would put back the history of this country at least 300 years. No country could afford it. They were in an age of advance. They were in an age when even Russia was winning free- dom as well as Mahomedan Turkey. Was that the time when Britain should walk back to the Dark Ages? (" No," and cheers.) That was really the demand that was put forward by these great feudal barons. They had just had above enough of them. (Cheers.) They had trampled upon the rights of the people in this country for centuries. (Cheers.) They had taken away the land of the people. Millions of acres that belonged to the commons of this country had been taken and absorbed by these great feudal Lords. For centuries they moulded the House of Commons. When beaten they obstructed the the bills which came from the Commons, and now they were making a claim to those powers which the Commons had made such sacrifices to win. (Cheers.) It was time for the people of this country to call them to a reckoning and to settle the account once and for all. (Cheers.!
