Holywell were unable to sustain the protest laid by them in reference to their Flintshire Challenge Cup semi-final, v Caergwrle, on Saturday weak. The matter was considered at aoueeting of the Flint- shire League, on Friday latt. Both taama ooncernetl bad tendered a protest on the same baiia of objeetion, being the disgraceful condition of the ground at the time of the matob, but the winners, at the interval, with the score 2-0 in their favour, teluiquished their case. "Saturday, April 2nd, will be looked forward to with interest in football circles, when two local teams will appear in cap-ties. Flint journey to Banger, where they meet Pwllheli in the North Wales Coast Amateur Cup final. The other matoh will excite conaidfcrable enthusiasm in the neighbour hood, when Greenfield and Bonghton appear at Bagillt, in the semi-finof the Chester and District Senior Oup. I The wiunbis play Mold Town in the final. Rolywell ate making good progress in the Flint- shire League. On Saturday, at Ffordd-fer, they were represented by a reserve team, when Coed Talon were visitors. Amongt the homesters, several gave a very promising display, and after a pleasant game, Holywell secured the odd goal in five. F MeNamaia performed the hat triok," scoring all three goals to the oredit of the Vios. Oooupying the inside-right position for the visitors was Edwin Williams (of Bryntord), formerly goal-keeper of Holywell County School XI.—Holywell were repre- sented by—A Nuttall; E Prioe and A Buyle JE Jones, H 0 Wilba. and T Conion; Ll Hughes, F MoNamara, H Evans, W Owens and Higgiabottom. FLINTSHIRE CHARITY OUP SEMI-FINAL Holywell Vies and Buokley Engineers both were visitors to Shotton, on Saturday, where they met as semi-finalists in the Flintshire Charity Cop, The game was in charge of Mr Owen, Caergwrle, as referee. Buckley were represented by a strong side, and inoluded members of the senior team (Liverpool County OomDiiintion League). For Holywell) R Edwards (at bllok) played a sound defensive game. Several chanoes were missed by the Vies, tiltttough the Engineers were admittedly the superior øiae. Buckley were leading by two goals, when close upun time a third point was awarded to them. Tae decision was resented by Holywell, who claimed a free-kick, alleging that the tail was struck into the net. However, the deoision was insisted upon by the referee, and the game resulted-Buckley, 3; Holywell, 0. A protest has been lodged by the Vios The following team represented Holywell J Jones; R Edwards and S Edwards Lt Rioharcs, J E Evane W H Rylands W E Hughes, T Hughes, J MoNamara, J W Williams and Ames. Bagillt United paid the return visit to Boughton, on Saturday, in the Chester and District League. The game was in charge of Mr W. Gtndy, wao made his debnt in the senior division. At toe close of time, the homtsters secured the maximum points, with a win of four goals to one. Saltney United and Dodleston met on Saturday, in a Junior Cup tie, which had been twice postponed owing to the absence of a referee. After a well- contested game, Saltney survived, scoring three goals to their oppoaeats' two. Cocnah's Quay Athletio were visitors to Ohristle- ton, and out of six goals scored during the matoh, the "fishermen" could only lay claim to one. Broughton St Mary's could ofiar but little resist- ance to Chester UnitariaaB, and afte; a poor game, for the second time this season batweea the teams, the Saints were defeated by eight goals to nil. Had it not been for the excellent play of tiae goalkeeper, Bagillt St Katy's would have met with a much heavier defeat on Saturday, when they visited Mold Alya Swifts. As it was, the game resulted in a win of loor goals to one in favoar of the home team.
CHESTER AND DISTRICT LEAGUE. GREENFIELD v SHOTTON. Greenfield.. 6 goals. Shotton 1 goal. Greenfield are going U great guas in the Chester and Distriot League, and on Saturday they were visited by Shotton Town. The homesters were without Ben Edwards, but the visitors were strongly represented, and inoluded J Griffiths, H Roberts and Gandy (late Oonnah's Quay Combination). Eaoh side possessed an international—G Petrie and J Griffiths-whioh is an exceptioeial oocurrenoe in district matches. A considerable amount of feeling was at times introduced, but Mr E. J. B. Yates Chester, who acted as referee, kept a firm grip of the game, and discharged bis duties in an efficient manner, and averted any unpleasantness which may have happened with a jess experienced offiaial in charge. The homeaters were in good form, and at times their combination was a feature. The whole team, rooe to the occasion, and gave a good acoount of themselves. G Petrie temporarily retired daring the second half, as a result of an injury. Greenfield were represented by-Goal, H Evans backs, J W Furnival and D Parry halves, T Evans, R E Jones and J N Jones; forwards, G Petrie, A Petrie, R 0 Griffiths, R B Petrie and Joel Banimett. The I omesters were favoured by the spin of the coin, and defended the railway end goal. From the start, play, gave promise of a good game, the respec- tive ends being visited in rapid succession. Green- field combined on the left, and were awarded a fretl-kiclr, from whioh Normaa Jones shot wide. Shotton carried play into the home half, after which B Petrie gained possession, and, with Bennett, transferred operations to the other end, where the lat er j laced behind. Play being carried on in mid- field, R.E. after being robbed of the ball. regained the leather by effaotive tackling. B Petrie dis- played tricky tactics, and passed to G Pttrif, from wti, m the goalie saved. Even play followed, eaoh side doing their utmost to gain an advantage. Toe homesters combined bioely, and forced a corner. The ball was well placed by G Petrie; B Petrie headed to Bertuttt, who (shot into goiftl but the danger was cleared. Greenfield again attacked from a clearance by R.E. Bennett shot it-to goat, whera the visiting centra-half placed tbroogh his own goal, from an attempt by Griffiths. Greenfield made play on the right, and after a melee in goal, G Petrie just missed. Good play was shown by the brothers Petrie. The ball was placed into goal. Griffiths headed to Beanett, who, finding the goal 1,11 packed," draw out opposition and parted to B the latter adding a seoond goal, by shooting ibto the bottom corner of the net. Sbotton, spirited by the reverses, carried operations iuto the home half, and after efieotive footwork, the inside-right defeated Evans. Greenfield, from the restart, attacked, and were awarded a fruitless corner. Shotton. were again at the home end, where T Eians concedod a corner, the ensuing kick being fisted clear by Evans. Good play was shown by R.E., who gave to A Petrie, from whom Griffiths rushtd a third goal. Shotton transferred play to the borne end, Evans cleating from H Roberts. Greenfield indulgtd in sort, long passiag, and carried operations into thiir opponents' territory, where they gained a oorner, from wbieh R.E. shot over. The homesters were awarded a iree-kick, agam-t the left-half, fur a foul upon Griffiths, which came to nought. Interval- Greenfield, 3; Shotton, 0. The first moiety had been full of incident, and at ticues the ¡; a.m e was spoiled by unfair tastios of players, who were frequently spoken to by Mr Yates. Opening che econd half, Greenfield immediately attacked. R.E. gave to A Petrie, who sbot from close ia.ge, the guaiie clearing. N J outs returned into goal, A Petcie being adjudged off-side. The visitors were again on tun defensive, when R E Jones scored a beautiful goal, from about IS yards' range. Greanncld were now giving an exposition of excellent football, and play was carried on in the Shottou half. R.E. passed out to G Petrie, who gave to Griffiths. The goal-keeper partially clearing from the latter, A Petrie netted a fifth goal. A break way by Shutton resulted in Parry checking Gaudy, which was fcilowed with an attack by Greenfield, the left back clearing off Bennett. The visitors' goal had several narrow escapes, the Gussotfian being frequently called upon. The home- fcterB were almost continually on the aggressive, wbioh was iutorllpersed by an occasional breakaway by the v siting quilitatte. The home forwards were moat bffeouve, whilst the defence was safe. G Pitrie evaded opposition, and plaoed into goal, Griffiths rushiag forward, and soured a sixth point. Neariog the close, play being in tbe Shotton half, G Petrie gave to A Petrie, the latter being fouled within the 18 yards area by the visiting centre-half. The ensuing penalty-kick was entrusted to B Petrie, who soared, but owing to one of the homesters encroaching over the line, the kick was ordered to be re-taken, which Petrie placed over the bar. No further scoring took place, and the game resulted in a win for Greenfield by six goals to one. Holywell O.L.B. and Holy Trinity Church played their return match, on Saturday, at Greenfield Hall Park (by kind permission of Mr Leggatt). Rev 0. R ;ee acted as referee. A pleasant game ended in a win for Holy Trinity Church (captained by Ml O. Williams), by three goals to two. CHESTER AND DISTRICT FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION. A well-attended meeting of the Executive of the above Atsooiation was held at the Oddf ellows' Hall, Chester, un Friday last, under the presidency of Mr E. T. Hallmark, when the following important business was transacted. It was decided to call the attention of all referees to the importance of firmly putting down misconduct of any ki id, and to point out that any cases coming under notiue muat be dealt with and immediately reported. It was decided that clubs also be notified of the same, and to draw their attention as to the misoouduot of spectators. The Committee regret this action should be necessary, but they wish it to be understood that foul play and misoonduot must be stamped out of the game. It was resolved that a team be selected from the District league to play Chester at Sealand-road, provided arrangements oould be made. Rtferee Pecking reported Mold Alyn Swifts for having left the ground during their cup-tie, v Eaton Park, at Eaton.—Toe Chairman remarked that the ojfeu96, was a grave one, and the Mold linesoaaa and two players suspended until the.end ofithe season, six players uutii Aprii 1st, and the remaining three players exonerated from blame. Arrangements for the semi-finals of the oupa resulted as foliows:- Senior Oup-Greenfield v Boughton, at Bagillt, on Saturday, April 2nd. Junior Cup—City Mission v Chester Unitarians, at Chester, on Good Friday or Easter Monday morning Saltney Ferry v Saltney United, at Saltney, on March 19th or Good Friday morning. DISTRICT LEAGUE v. CHESTER. It will be noticed from the report of the Chester and District Football Association, that negotiations are being made for a match to be played by a team selected from the District League v Chester, at Sealand Boad. The idea is a good one, and has caught on well with the District olubs. TOelre is no doubt, that some exoellent players are taking part in the League matohes at present, and more than one iuternational player is sporting the colours of local league clabs All that is wanted to make the affair a huge BUociSS is the support of the football-loving public of the district, and it is hoped that all true sportsmen will make an effort to be present at the maioh.

PICKINGS FROM "rrrNCH." The problem of Monarchs out of busineat bxjecr_r.es more grave every day, and there is talk of a forthcoming Congress between the ex-Sultan, the ex-Shah, and the ex-Lama to discuss the situation with a view to combined action of some sort. It is thought that the institution of a Royal Labour Exchange would be as useful as anything. Mrs. Atherton on the Englishman, as quoted in 1. The "Daily Telegraph": "He is far and away the most interesting type of the genus homo." 2. The "Daily Mail": "He is far and away the most interesting type of the genius of home." We prefer the more expensive penny version. "There was an awful whirl of waters, a rushing and a roaring, a vacuum in the rag- ing sea and then, nothing "—"Daily Mirror" Serial. The shock of coming across nothing, just after meeting a vacuum, would be intense. "German Gentleman desires Home in best English (Christian) family in London, N.W." —"Morning Post."

MAKING THE BEST OF IT. A well-dressed woman was charged at Wil- lesden with being drunk. She explained that she had been indulging in spirits, which never agreed with her. The Magistrate: "Stick to tea and cocoa in future. You must pay 5s. for your indiscre- tion." Prisoner: "I have decided not to pay." The Magistrate: "Then you will have- to go to a place where you will get no spirits." Prisoner: WKeyer mind. Perhaps the tea and cocoa treatment will do me good."

FLINTSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL. INITIAL METAMORPHOSIS INTERESTING RESULTS. ,NThe first meeting of the newly- elected County Council was held at the County Building, Mold, on Wednesday. Great interest was taken in the proceedings. The Unionist Party, with their first 'Working majority since the forma- tion of County Councils, occupied not only the right wing of the chair but the greater portion of the centre while the Liberal ranks showed how severe had been the defeat of the party which had held sway for 21 years. THE NEW CHAIRMAN. Lord Mostyn proposed that Mr W Y Hargreaves be elected to the chair, and said they all realised that during the past three years Mr Summers had discharged the duties of chairman with great fairness, but his elevation to the House of Com- mons would prevent his close atten- tion to the duties of the Council. In Mr Hargreaves, who had acted as vice-chaiaman, they had an equally impartial man Mr J W Summers, MP, seconded the proposition The election was unanimous, and on taking the chair Mr Hargreaves proposed a vote of thanks to Mr J W Summers, who for six years had so ably filled the chair Mr P P Pennant seconded, and the vote of thanks was carried with applause The Chairman thanked the Coun- cil for his election. Since the last election a change had come over the Council, and no doubt there Would be a change in the policy of that Council. No doubt that change would create a diversity of opinion but he hoped that in that he would have the loyal support which had been accorded to his prodecessor SHARING HONOURS—LIBERAL VICE-CHAIRMAN. Colonel Howard proposed Ald. S Perks, Rhyl, as vice-chairman, Mr J. Phillip Jones, Holywell, seconded, and Mr Ed. Morgan, supported the proposition, which Was unanimously carried. Mr Perks, on taking the vice- chair, said he looked upon his election as a mark of friendliness and as some recognition of his work ELECTION OF ALDERMEN. WANTED—RECORD FOR REVENGE The election of seven aldermen for six years was then proceeded With, and the voting was strictly on party lines. The votes were as lollows:— Elected: J. H. Warburton Lee, Overton, 24; F. J. Gamlin, Rhyl, 24s; Joseph W. M. Evans, Flint 26; Thos R rrobert, Broughton Hall, 23; Trevor Eyton, Greenfield, 24; F Capel Cure, Caerwys, 24; C P Morgan, Mold, 24. Non-elected Thos Parry, Mold; 18; H J Roberts, Mold, 18; 81 Jones, Holywell, 18; M A Ralli, Newmarkea. 17; Jos Jacob, Whit- well, 18. then took place for an alderman to sit for three years in place of the late Mr Hugh Davies, Hawarden, the result being Elected: Mr Frank Mortimer, Llanasa, 23. Non-elected Mr T Parry, Mold, 16; Mr J Lindop, 1 All the elected are Conservatives Dr Humphry Williams caused a scene by proposing that a strict record be kept of how every mem- ber voted that day, contending that a large number of members had compromised themselves in the eyes of the public by the way they had voted. MrF J Gamlin; Does that include yourself Dr Williams: Yes Mr Gamlin; You voted for an Independent man. Br Williams: No, I voted for a downright good Tory (laughter). STANDING JOINT POLICEI COMMITTEE. Mr J H Ellis proposed that the following constitute the Standing Joint Police Committee: Aldermen Capel Cure, J W M Evans, Frank Mortimer, Councillers T G Lewis, V Lewis, G A Parry, J p Jones, T J Reney, Dr Humphry Williams, J Lloyd-Price, H A Tilby, A J Reaey, and W Conwy Bell. Mr Ralli asked if it was not the rule that the Council did not appoint magistrates on the committee ? H e proposed that no magistrates be appointed. The Chairman ruled there was no such rule and that it would require a special resolution. Dr Williams agreed with Mr Ralli, and said the Liberals would be prepared to accept eight Conser- vatives and four Liberals, leaving the few Liberal magistrates re- maining in the county to select eight Liberals and four Conserva- tives, and so make the Standing Joint Committee to consist of 12 Liberals and 12 Conservatives. Mr J H Ellis: You have seven magistrates, and five who are not magistrates. Dr Williams appealed to the Conservatives to be generous. Mr Ellis: In the past we have listened to your terms, and now you will listen to our terms, and we cannot deviate from them. Mr Ralli proposed that Messrs Goodman Edwards, Allen, and T A Parry should be put on the com- mittee, but on a vote being taken Mr Ellis' list was carried by 32 votes to 12. Mr Tilby: The effect of the vote is to show how great is our affection for Dr Williams (loud applause). THE EDUCATION COMMITTEE.
