THE CHESTER FOOTBALL MUDDLE. + The committee of the new Chester Football Club held a meeting on Monday evening at the Nag's Head Cocoa House, Mr. H. Crowder pre- siding.—On the proposition of Mr. Edgar Dutton, it was decided to admit reporters to all the future meetings.—Mr. Fred. Porter sub- mitted the namea of the players who had con- sented to give their services to the club. They were as follows:—Coventry, Dixon, Wilson (Liverpool), Evan Roberts, Catherall, Porter, W. Lewis, Speakman, B. Lipsham, Blakeman, T. Lewis, Carter, Fergusson, Bloomer, Griffiths. —The committee next considered the matters postponed from the last meeting.—Mr. R. Atherton (hon. sec.) thought they could °?Z. ,come to the same decision as at the last meeting, viz., that they should not press the players.—The Chairman drew atten- tion to the manner in which several of the players treated the committee at the last meeting. The committee wanted to carry on the affairs in a straightforward manner, but the players seemed to take it more as a matter of business. The committee did not approve of their attitude, and had consequently adjourned this question. Mr. E. T. Hallmark said he knew there was considerable dissatisfaction in refer- ence to the debts of the old club, and people were under the impression that the new committee had shirked the liability. A letter had appeared in the newspapers from an old friend of the late committee of the club, which stated it would be better for them to close the club for a season, and begin again under another name. He (Mr. Hallmark) only wished they could, for then they would not be charged with escaping liabilities.—Mr. E. Dutton remarked that in reference to the letters in the newspaper signed 'Old Friend,' the writer should have called himself Old C—' tlaughter.) The writer expressed his aversion to sports taking place on the foot- ball ground. By those sports, however, they had taken 968 one year and R64 another, so why were not the silver cups in connection with the sports paid for out of the proceeds instead of the bill being left to the present committee P He proposed they carry on the club inde- pendently of old friends.' (Applause and laughter.)—Mr. Hallmark: I should not be prepared to go on in face of the opposition of the players and the public. I should give the old members a chance of making friends.—In answer to Mr. A. Crimes, the Chairman said they could not adopt a new name for the club. The motion to carry on the club was seconded by Mr. Coventry, and carried with one dissentient (Mr. Crimes).-Mr. Hallmark: I think in the face of these difficulties the matter wants more con- sideration.-The question of filling the vacan- cies on the committee was deferred till the next meeting.-Mr. Atherton. reported with regard to the new ground that the sub-committee appointed ta meet at the Leadworks were doubtful whether to take over the proposed ground. They found that some hoarding would have to be erected, and the ground would want mowing and considerably levelling. In face of the expense of these works they thought it best to retain the old ground at least for one season.—On the proposition of Mr. Dutton it was decided that the sub-committee meet Mr. Williams at the Leadworks the following day about the matter, and report to another meeting.
