WELSH SENIOR CUP, LLANDUDNO ANATEURS v. CARNARVON UNITED. A FINE GAME ENDS IN A DRAW. (BY" VIGILANT.") The visit of the Canaries in the above Cup tournament was looked forward to with more than ordinary interest, and on Saturday there was a good crowd to greet the 'Chers notwithstanding their stumble on the Saturday previous at the feet of Colwyn Bay. By a strange co-incidence, the Canaries were due at Llandudno on the date of the Carnarvon Boroughs Elec- tion last time. They did not on that occa- sion fulfil their obligation, but did so on Saturday. THE 'CHERS VASTLY IMPROVE. Amongst those present in the stand and in the crowd were Councillor T. E. Purdy, and a good number of the members of the Colwyn Bay team, and their interest in the event was above the ordinary. The game was a slashing one, full of incident and ex- citement. The great improvement shown by Llandudno to the previous Saturday's display was refreshing and encouraging. Playing against a breeze the 'Chers made good ground, and some 01 the work done was applauded. Bob Davies managed to do the tiick after some capital work by little Jim, and the pent up feelings of the Llandudno spectators found an outlet for relief in shouts of joy. vr THE CANARIES SMART. The yellow ones were all for business and in my opinion were more ready to take ptrctndt advantage of any opportunities which came their way. They were always dangerous when in the shooting zone. After a very pretty run on the right a cur- ling shot was met bv Twin Bach yr Offis," who somehow "lifted the ball further in its flight quite out Stallard's reach into the top corner 0f net. It was & ■ri>»rtiy g-o* —». <uid loud applause greeted the pcrlormanoe which placed the sides on equal terms. IIa\f time arrived with a I goal each. v JACK HENRY INC^EASeS THE 'CHERS LEAD. Playing with a breeze behind them, Llandudno played up well, and bad dis. tinctly hard lines on sever*, occasions. During a spell of pressure, T larujudno were awarded a free kick, from w- Henry scored with a grounds. Tones falling as he attempted to save. A 1^€wa| of joyous shouts were heard and ot hand shakings seen. The Canaries feeling th reverse, .and played some ill football, Walter Jones always forebadil% danger to Llandudno when he got awa • The game was somewhat loose on Llan- dudno's part, and Carnarvon seized the chances offered. To the dismay of the crowd, Walter Jones drew level with a splendid rising shot from long range. Al- though Llandudno had really most of the g,ime, ib,e defence of the Canaries was ex. cellent. One thing I would. like to mention, and that dt is the brutal trick J. Williams, half back of the Canaries had of upsetting Bob Davies when on the run. The manner in which he bowled Bob over was sufficient to break his neck, and never did I or others around me feel so disgusted with such unwarrantable conduct as this innocent was capable of. Mr. R. D. Richards, who acted as referee ad- ministered him a caution, which it is to be hoped will fall on fertile ground. THE STRUGGLE FOR THE WINNING GOAL. The remaining portion of the game after Walter Jones had equalised was a very enjoyable affair. The game went on at a ding-dong pace, both goals being attacked with vigour .and determination. Carnar- von indulged at some stages in kicking out, quite unnecessarily. No increase in the score was made, and a fast and pleasing game ended in a draw. ;Final:- JJandudno, 2; Carnarvon, 2.
COAST JUNIOR LEAUGE JUNCTION RESERVES v. PENMAENMAWR. The invincible team of quarrymen from Penmaenmawr were the visitors on the Woodlands ground at the Junction on Satur- day afternoon, and although the field was extremely damp a good number of spectators lined the ropes, and a large number of these were the visitors' supporters. With the election of the Chancellor near to at Conway, there was considerable enthusiasm Wihafn it was -'seen that the 'visitors were playing in yellow, the Liberal colours, and the homesters in blue, the Conservative party colours. It was at once a game of play up, Liberals, and play up, Conserva- tives. Mr. C. J. Thomas, Bangor, had charge of the following t-eams:- Junction Llew. Parry George Williams and W. E. Jones; Walter Parry, Cordery and Evan Jones; Tom Craven, D. Parry, Ernest Parry, T. Morgan and Chesters. Penmaenmawr: Bob Lloyd; W. E. Hughes and Hugh Jones; R. Brown, J. Jones and T. Jones; J. W. Lunt, A. G. Jones, R. Morris, C. Sloane and C. S. Williams. There was considerable excitement as soon as the ball was set rolling, and Ernest Parry, gaining possession, worked his way through and placed Craven in an excellent position. Tom centred well, but Chesters missed an open goal. The visitors settled down to business, and proved their invin- cibility by pressing continually and giving the home defence a hot time. Ernest Parry again got away, but one of his partners be- ing offiside spoiled the movement. Away came the Quarrymen again, and the home defence put in all they knew to keep them in check, but K. Morris from long range caught Llew napping -and scored a good goal. The visitors' supporters were boiling over with excitement, and very little could be heard on the ground but Play Pen- maen." And they did play, too, but it was more of the kick and a rush style- than the graceful combination which one usually ex- pects to see. The home backs were pot at all safe, and Llew was full of anxiety. Both men missed their kick, and luckily Llew diverted its course around the up- right. Again Ernest Parry was prominent, and he forced a corner, which, however, was fruitless. In a few minutes the Quarry- men swooped down on Llew, and a scrim- mage ensued. Two of the visitors had at- tempted to rush the ball into the net, but failed, and whilst they were close on Llew and a scrimmage ensued. Two of the vis. tors had attempted to rush the ball into the net, but failed, and whilst they were close on Llew, Sloane scored, but the appeal for offside was not listened to by the referee. From now to half time the visitors were having the best of matters. No further scoring took place. When they resumed it was felt that the Junction would do some damage, but not so, for the Quarrymen's defence was im- pregnable. Ernest Parry kept the forwards going well, but their movements were a lot too slow for this classy player. A sprint up the field by the visitors spelt disaster, and R. Monris notched the third point somewhat easily, through the weakness of the backs. Play was of a give and take character from row to the end, but the visitors were far superior ii the vicidty of goal, and they added two more goals. A penalty kick was missed by Ernest Parry in the closing stages of the game. The final result was Penmaenmawr, 5; Junction Reserves, o. COMMENTS. Good play was out of the question in this match owing to the sodden condition of the ground. The visitors are a well-balanced lot, but the mainstay of the team is the de- fence, who play a powerful game. Of the half back line, R. Brown was by far the best player, and he deserved a place in a more classy team. Morris, at centre for- ward, was the best of the forward line. He has plenty of dash, and is a source of great worry to the opposing defence. The whole team played a nne game, and they should feel proud of their record of not having yet been beaten this season. For the home team, Llew Parry had no chance with the goals scored against him. His backs were very weak. Evan Jones was the best of the half back line, and in the forward line Ernest Parry was the only one worth mentioning. The others were only fair. If Ernest had had a good player each side of him, they would have done some damage.
FRIENDLY. LLANRWST COUNTY SCHOOL v. HIGHER GRADE. ntK TT r>la-Ved. 13-1 Gwydyr Park, Llanrwst The Higher Grade team was E Bland • R T Davies and A. Nevitt; D. Rov'les f Meek and A. Hulme; J- H Robert" Hughie Hughes, S. Griffiths and G p' Hughes. From the outset the visitors pressed al- thoign a f01 ward short, and forced a cor- ner. This was nicely placed, and Griffith.; ■forced it into the net. Half time arriv^ with the score: Llanrwst County, 0; Llan- rwst Higher Grade, 1. I Llanrwst nad tne better of the opening exchanges, but Nevitt and Davies defended well. A foul against the Higher Grade en- abled them to equalise, Bland throwing himself full length in an effort to save. After this reveue they enjoyed the best of the game, and Meek got a goal, which was immediately followed by another from G. Hughes. Hughie Hughes experienced hard luck with a swift ground shot. Result: Higher Grade School, 3; Llanrwst County School, I.
CATARRHAL COLDS and STUBBORN COUGHS. Famous Girl Preachers cured by VENO'S LIGHTNING COUGH CURE. Ilrs, Storr, the well-known evangelist, and mother of Frances and Rose Bradley Storr, the famous girl preachers, writing from 48, Abbott-street, Doncaster, says:—"My two girls were never free from a stubborn chok. ing cough and nasal catarrh. Frances had her tonsils cut, but the cough got chronic, and I was frightened of her going into con- sumption. I tried everything, but nothing did any good until I tried Veno's Lightning Cough Cure. I gave her the first dose one afternoon, and it immediately brought up the phlegm, and stopped the cough, and the same evening she preached to a crowded congregation.

The Burden of the Rates. WHO BEARS THE BRUNT? Mr. Lloyd George, in his tour of the Carnarvon Boroughs on Friday, showed very convincingly that the Budget will bene- fit the poorest ratepayers—" the man at the bottom "—and that the new valuation which he is responsible for will lead to fairer assessments all round. Speaking at Deganwy the Chancellor answered the various written questions handed up to him. BUDGET AND SMALL PROPERTY OWNERS. First, Mr. Lloyd George said, he was asked whether the Budget was going to in- crease the burdens upon small property- owners. People in this district owning one or two houses," wrote the questioner, have been told that next January they will have to pay extra taxation under the Budget." Like most things said on the other (replied the Chancellor) that is abso- lutely untrue. (Cheers.) People who have new forms to fill up naturally wonder what is going to happen. Hello," they were inclined to say. here is another infernal machine invented to blow up my little pro- perty." (Laughter.) That is not the object of these forms at all. The object is to get a complete '-aluation of the land of the kingdom, for the first time since the days of Williarr, the Conquerer. In Ireland there has been a Government valuation and sever- al revisions, but you have had no valuation in thij country. The result is that assess- ments are very unequal, and the small pro- perty owner has everything to gain by a good, fair, sound valuation. (Cheers.) I' know something about valuation. I had a good deal of exiperience of valuation in the days when I was practising down at Portn-adoc, and before that N,L.cn I was an apprentice we had -many assessment cases, and nothing struck me more than the in- equality of the assessment everywhere, es- pecially for local rating. One 1hing espec- ially struck me. One man who paid to the iull was the owner of a small prroperty. I have never seen a tradesman let off without paying on the full valuation, but I have seen many a mansion let off at a tenth of its value. (Cheers.) INEQUALITIES IN VALUATION. I got a list of the mansions in Carnarvon- shire recently, and compared with the shops which are paying on full value or more than full value they are assessed at something like a fourth or a fifth, some even at a twentieth of their value. (Cheers.) If vou assess the big places too low somebody has got to make it up. Who makes it -up? It is always the same man. The man at the bottom has got to bear the bulk of the burden. I am more concerned for the poor man at the bottom than the man at the top. (Cheers.) My mission in politics is to look after him arid I have gone in for a great valuation in this country as a beginning towards getting some sort of equality and fair play all round. Nobody ought to be let off- Each of us should bear a share of the b'uiden, but i.one of us should bear more than his share. My principle in valuation ls the same as in legislation—fair play all ound. When, we get the complete valua- ion \ye shall have a basis then for re- T the burden of local taxation, an4 I hopa before I have the privilege of meet- inS you agalll there will be such 'a re- adjustment of the burdens of local taxation that you will have gained from this valua- tion and not lost. (Cheers.) Mr. Lloyd George went on to reply to other questions. Imports and exports, he said, had not mere- ly increased in value. They had increased in weight and quantity, and the trade of this wonderful country this year would be the largest ever seen. (Cheers.)

The estimate (9th November, 1905) of proposed crpital expenditure in connection with Gas- works extension, amounting to 616,675, had been exceeded by the sum of ^.774 15s. 2d. at the 31st March, 1909. This excess ex- penditure was chiefly :n respect of Coal Store and Engine House, Coal Elevator, and Cookers and Meters. On the 20th January, 1910, a sum of £777 5s. id. was received from the London and North-western Rail- way Co., being the difference between the amount paid by the Council to the Railway Co. in August, 1907, towards the cost of constructing a railway siding at the Gas- 'works, and the actual cost ascertained after the completion of the work. The amount entered in the estimate above referred to in respect of the railway siding was [2)S, but the amount which the Company requir- ed the Council to deposit with them was f3 282 10s.

Tn r:onnecition with this matter I would refer the Council to the re- -e marks made by me in my last report with reference to the unsatisfactory position of their finances. I am glad to learn that the Council in May last increased the General District Rate from 5s. iod. to 6s. id. in the £ and I trust that they will make further provision for the extinction of the overdraft within a reasonable period. I found it necessary again to disallow the interest amounting to Z630 14s. 3d. on the overdrafts, and to charge the amount upon Messrs. David Gamble, George Bevan and Hugh Hughes, who authorised the making of the illegal pavrnent. the suggestions made by me at my pre- vious audit are, I find, being carried out. I desire to remand the Council that accu- rate account should be taken of all stock in hand at 31st March, 1911, in order that the new stock books may be opened with a correct statement of all goods in store. I have to express my appreciation of sev- eral improvements in the keeping of the ac- counts introduced during the current year. The following are some of the new account books which I think members of the Coun- ci I will find very useful-Loans ledger, which contains the complete history of each loan borrowed since 1887. The creditors' ledger, containing personal accounts with ail persons from whom the Council buys goods, and the general cash book, which will enable the Council at the close of each month readily to ascertain the correct bal- ances on the several revenue and capital accounts. I think it is very desirable that the ac- counts in respect of fixed water charges should be made out and delivered early in the financial year. I was informed that the accounts in respect of such charges for the current year had not been made out at the date of the audit, 22nd November. I would also draw attention to the fact that th eaccounts due at Christmas, 1909, of the gas and electric rentals and uncollected at 3ist March, 1910, amounted to Z758 and Z224 respectively. I would also suggest that the present system of selling coke, &c., on credit should be limited as much as possible. It involves much unnecessary labour in book-keeping, and leads to a cer- tain amount of loss For further particulars of the receipts and payments under their several headings I beg to refer the Council to the financial state- ment signed by me and delivered to the Clerk.
Flintshire Railway Scheme. The question of the Flintshire Light Railway came under discussion at Friday's meeting of the Holywell Rural District Council. There are at present two rival schemes, one prepared by Mr. W. F. Butler, of Mold, and the other by Mers. Parry and Bidder, of London. The latter scheme is at present under the consideration of the Flintshire County Council. After discussion Mr. \ebster gave notice that he would at the next meeting move that the Council ex- press its approval oi Mr. Butler's scheme.

Llanrwst Sewage Case. STATEMENT BY MR. ISGOED JONES. To the Editor of the Weekly News. SIR,—Now that the proceedings I was compelled to take against the Llanrwst Urban District Council have come to an end, and I have obtained the injunction I asked for against them. I think it right that the public should know that these proceed- ings were the result of the Council's re- fusal to make any terms with me in regard to the discharge of their crude sewage into the River Conway opposite my property, with disastrous results to my estate, and which was in various ways thereby most injuriously affected. w I am not fonder of law than the aver- age citizen, and I certainly should not have resorted to it in the present case if I had not been driven to do so. Negotiations were of no use to the Council. They not only declined to admit the existence of a nuisance, but they went so far as to con- test my title to some portion of my land. The only alternative was this action, which was started early in the present year. Not so very long after the case was launched, or, to be quite accurate, on the 26th of April, a member of the Urban Dis- trict Council called upon me and discuss- ed the matter in a friendly wTay, and of course without prejudice, and he gave me the impression that he was anxious to see an end to the litigation. As a result of this interview I handed him on the 29th of the same month a statement of the ieims which would then have satisfied line, and the acceptance of which would have sr-ved the enormous costs that have since been incurred, quite apart from the large sum of money that will now have to be spent in reconstructing the whole of the drainage system of the town. The following were the actual terms I submitted — 1. That the sewei outfall at the souther- ly end of Plasyndre be discontinued, and that in lieu thereof the sewer be con- tinued a-long the river bank through Mr. Isgoed Jones' land :n a northerly direction Uutil it joins ewr No. 2, intercepting that sewer and continuing along the bank of the river, still in a northerly direction and eventually forming one outfall for both sewers into a deep pool at the boundary of Plasyndre Land with a field known as Ddol Fawr, occupied by Mr. Robert Re- berts, m which cas. an annual lent of £5 shall be paid by the Council to Mr. Isgoed Jones for the joint easement; or io 2. That a scheme be arranged after con- sultation between two or three of the ex- perts on either side for the proper treat- men+ of the sewage at a point to be agreed between the parties, so that that same be rendered harmless to the River Conway, and to the plaintiff's property, the outfalls i and 2 and the sewers therewith connect. ed being only continued if at all for the discharge of the sewage so purified and 3. That the whole of the work be done under the supervision and to the satisfac- tion of Mr. Isgoed Jones' engineer or other expert, and that a fornal easement be prepared of other document executed in a iorm satisfactory to Mr. Isgoed Jones' solicitors for the maintenance of such sewers or outfalls, and 4. That in any event the whole of the costs and expenses incurred by Mr. Isgoed Jones be paid to his solicitors by the Council, with the following footnote For the sake of Llanrwst and dis. trict and for the sake of shewing Mr. Isgoed Jones' anxiety to save the rate- payers' pockets and not for any other reason he has considered the minimum limit of concessions which are compris- ed in the above terms." On the 14th of May the Clerk to the Council wrote me direct that these terms were not entertained. The public ot Llanrwst ana neignDOUI- hood can judge for themselves whether, in the circumstances, I have acted unreason- ably. Whatever the costs amount to and whatever the expense of the scheme of re- constructing the drainage, I shall have to pay my proportion as a considerable rate- paver in the district. I shall also have to pav a very considerable sum for the dif- ference between what are known as taxed costs and the totil amount of the costs in. curred. toy me. I have had no vindictive feeling of any sort or kind from the beginning to the end of this unfortunate dispute: and if any evidence were required to show that I had no desire to punish my own town, I think it may be gathered from the statement of my leading counsel, Mr. Romer, at the very close oi the case, when Mr. Justice Parker asked him whether he desired an injunction and damages, and he replied saying that I did not ask for both, and would be satisfied with an injunction only. Apologising for trespassing upon your space, and thanking you in anticipation.— I am, &c., O. ISGOED JONES. Plasyndre, Llanrwst.
An Abergele Charge. A special Police Court was held on Satur- day morning ,Mr. E. Williams in the chair, when Daniel Owen, in the employ of Mr. R. Cross, Llanddulas, was brought up in custody charged with having stolen a livery- coat. belonging to John Robert Jones, a driver at the ILaro Hotel, Abergele. Police Constable llov lands, Llanddulas, said that from information received and in- quiries made he proceeded to the Mills at llanddulas on Saturday morning, and there saw the prisoner at 10 o'clock and told him that he suspected him of having stolen a livery coat from the stables of the Harp Hotel Prisoner replied, "You are mis- taken I have done nothing of the kind." Witness then asked him where he slept, and he replied in a bedroom in the house. The officer then said that he intended to search his room, when prisoner replied, You can do so you won't find anything there only what belongs to me." Proceed- ing, witness said that he called Mr. R. Cross, from whom he obtained permission to search the bedroom, which he did in the presence of the accused and his employer. Under the bed he found a brown paper parcel, tied with string. On opening it he found it to contain the light fawn livery coat (produced). lie asked prisoner, "Well, what is this?" He answered, I bought that coat of a man on the road near Aber- gele on a Saturday some time ago-" Wit- ness asked him who the man was, and he replied that be did'nt know. In reply to another question prisoner said that he had not seen the man before or since. Witness then formerally arrested him and charged him with having stolen the coat on or about October 22nd, but prisoner still stuck to the story of having bought it as stated. At it.30 that morning, in the presence of prisoner, John Robert Jones identified the coat as his property. Prisoner had no questions to ask, and on the application of Sergeant Jones-Rees he was remanded in custody for a week to en- able the police to make further enquiries.
That I think the ability shown by Pen- maenmawr s truly remarkable. That I heartily congratulate them upon their ability shown, and hope to go and see them personally ere long. 'Ihat I m told good old William Hughes, of No. 1, New York-terrace, is becoming an enthusiast in the game. Clywch! Clywch Da iawn, Will Bach, my friend. That it was unfortunate for Colwyn Bav tc be unable to go to Llanberis on Satur- day owing to the ground being under v.-ater. That the majority of the Bavites team were enjoying the match at Llandudno. That I must congratulate Llaaludno upon the very much improved tone in 'léir play of Saturday with the previous week s display. That there is still more improvement needed such as being more nippy on the ball, allowing opponents too much rope, and a greater spirit of dare-devil which the 'Chers can infuse if they like. That it will be as well to do this on every possible occasion, especially in the replay. That the gate was £10 odd, not bad con- sidering the weather. That there should be a good gate at the replay. That Father Owen did not need to lower the flag to half mast on that occasion. I That good old Tommy Wellings was a spectator. That he is one of best sports Colwyn Bay ever had. That he is now the trainer of the Gulls, and a jolly one too. That to have the services of so exper- ienced a player means a lot to any team. That Carnarvon are to be congratulated upon turning up at LLandudno on Satur- day. That politics were allowed to interfere with the match in January, and so the Canaries did not turn up at Llandudno in the Senior Welsh Cup-tie. That had the Canaries repeated that conduct on this occasion it would have been a serious thing for the Coast Associa- tion to consider. That happily "All's well that ends well." That Festiniog are on the up-grade, and defeated the Holyhead Seniors at Festiniog on Saturday by 3-1. That it looks evident that the Flamingos will not be the wooden spoonists of the League this season. That the Seal arks are doing badly, beaten home and away. That I congratulate Mr. Percy Weekes upon being the new secretary of the Coast Association. Open Letter. To TOMMY WELLINGS, COLWYN BAY. Dear Tom,—Your exit from the Colwyn Bay team as an active player was always to me a matter of extreme regret, for I con- sidered you were leaving the arena in the full prime of your football glory. You were always, Tommy, one of the most con- sistent players and artful centre-halves in North Wales. This was due, no doubt, to the grand Salopian experience you had prior to coming to Colwyn Bay. Socially, you are one of the most genial friends to meet and prove a trump to those whom you have found to be worthy of your friend- ship. You are as straight as a dart in your opinions, and know classy play when you see it. I congratulate Colwyn Bay in hav- ing such a worthy trainer as your dear old self. May your shadow never grow less.—With lest wishes, H Vigilant."
