Festiniog v. Llanrwst. To the Editor of the Weekly News. Sir,-In your issue of December the 16th ap- pears a letter from Mr Morris, Chairman of the Festiniog Club, in which he very fairly sets down the incident to which I referred in my report of the match played on the 3rd inst., and there appears to me to be but very little difference between Mr. Morris and myself. We are both anxious that the conduct of the spectators should be such as would reflect credit alike upon the game and the ground upon which it is played. The only point of difference appears to be this. That Mr Morris is of opinion that if I or anyone is subjected to any abuse, it is our duty to go hunting for a Committee man, bring him along, and point out the culprit. That would no doubt be assisting them to put down such conduct! But who is to do the work for which I am paid during my absence from attention to the game? My contention is that members of the committee should be on duty upon the eround to prevent (and not to cure) any dis- agreeable conduct. Mr Morris refers to a previous report of mine, in which I speak highly of the sportsmanlike conduct of the Fes- tiniog spectators. I can assure Mr Morris that as in the past, 1 shall in future endeavour to give due prominence to everything that assists in the promotion of the good old game, and shall not hesitate to draw attention to any unseemly conduct that may occur.—Yours, etc.
