Hockey. COLWYN BAY v. OUT OX. This match was played Oil Saturday, the 14th inst, and. resulted in a win for the visitors by 4--0. Olton is one of the best Midland clubs, and they were without some of their usual eleven. They were reinforced by several from other well-known Midland clubs, and put a strong team on the ground. At the same time, the local team gave them an excellent game, which was hardly represented by the score. For the Olton team, Hooper, the goalkeeper was brilliant, and the forwards were prominent throughout. On the part of the locals, Mee did some good work. The game was pleasantly contsted throughout. COLWYN BAY v. LATCIIFORI). These teams played on the afternoon of Easter Monday, and the local club was victorious by 3 goals to 1. Though the Bay were without several of then- regular team, they were admir- ably reinforced by Douglas (Chester) and Ad- denbrook (Wolverhampton) at half-back, and J. Hampson (Chester), and tha excellence of their play largely contributed to the result. With such support the forward line were on this occa- sion very effective, J. Morris, R. E. Page, and Douglas scoring the goals, whilst the Pages on the r.ght wing combined usefully. Raynes at half-back was also clever. The visitors played a good game, and, as on Saturday, it was an en- joyable contest both to the players and to the on- lookers, who .mustered in considerable force, and lost no opportunity of manifesting their up mun I)f the ganlc.

Welsh Cup Final. DRUIDS v. ABERYSTWYTH. Played at Newtown on Monday, in splendid weather, before 3,000 spectators. Druids playing with the wind and sun taxed the Aberystwyth defence, but failed to get through. C.ose on the interval James scored for Aberystwyth with a grand shot. Afterwards, Green, from a corner, added a second. No more goals were registered up to half-time, the score thus standing—Aberys- twyth, 2 Druids, o. The second half was of a somewhat similar character. Aberystwyth pressing, Storey managed to add a third. There was no more scoring up to the end of the game, which finished in favour of Aberystwyth by 3 goals to o. Combination. BANGOR v. NEWTOWN. Played at Bangor on Monday, in delightful weather, and before the largest gate of the season. The home left became prominent in the first few minutes, and what looked like disaster was nullified by Di Roberts being offside. A splendid opening was given T. Thomas by Morgan Jones, but he skied the leather. A few minutes later Morgan Jones sent in a terrific shot which the custodian cleared. Then the visiting outside right got away and Buckland had a hard job to clear. From another grand shot by Dick Jones the custodian was forced to concede a corner, which was placed in the net by Morgan Jones, but the point was not allowed on account of being offside. Neither side were over smart in their combination. Owing to some loose play Roberts tested Ted Owen with a beauty. Morgan Jones, with an open goal, shot miraculously over. Half-time, no score. The homesters had play all their own way in the second half, and after ten minutes play scored their first goal. Five more followed in quick succession. Time arrived with the score—Bangor, 6 New- town, o. BANGOR v. ABERYSTWYTH. Played at Bangor in stormy weather on Saturday last. The fact of the visitors having to meet the Druids in the final of the YVelsh Cup added additional interest to this fixture. Aberystwyth won the toss and played with a strong wind at their backs. From a nice pass from Edwards, Dick Jones got away, but Charlie Parry cleared, and the ball rebounded off Jones, and he, in the nick of time, sent in a terrific shot which Roose managed to clear. A few minutes later, from a pass by Dick Jones, T. Thomas sent in a beautiful ground shot which beat Roose. This reverse seemed to enliven the visitors who made a deter- mined attack upon the home citadel, and W. Pervis saved what seemed a certain goal. Half-time arrived with the score—Bangor, i Aberystwyth, o. In the second half the visitors continued to press and the home goal had some narrow escapes. Then the homesters went for Roose like one man, and that individual saved in a manner which was highly appreciated by the spectators. Neither side could manage to notch a goal in this last half, the game thus ending in favour of Bangor by the small score of 1 goal to o. North Wales Coast League. COLWYN BAY v. DENBIGH. The return match between these clubs was played on Saturday last at Cohvyn Bay. From the start it was quite evident that good football was out of the question on account of the strong wind blowing down the Field. The visitors had brought a very poor team to represent them. During" the first half Colwyn Bay kept their goal intact against the wind, and from occasional runs up the field managed to score a couple of goals. The second half was simply a matter of how many goals the Bayites would put on, for Denbigh offered a very feeble defence. When the whistie blew for time Colwyn Bay had increased their goal average by ten points, but as neither side have any chance of heading the league the game was not very interes- ting to the spectators. Final-Colwyn Bay, 10 Denbigh, o. Colwyn Bay team—Downes, Owen, Hughes, Griffiths, Quinlon, Williams, McCann, Reckless. Roberts, E. Jones, and Chaplin. EYERTOX v. WREXHAM. On Monday last the Everton Combination team turned out on Wrexham Racecourse. A stiff breeze was blowing when Jones kicked-oii for the homesters. There was a goodly number of spectators present. The home team were short of three of their usual players. With the wind behind them Wrexham pressed severely, and managed to score from the foot of \V. Jones. There was no further scoring up to the call of time, the match thus ending in favour of the homesters by one goal to nothing. LLANDUDNO SWIFTS v. NEWTOWN. This friendly fixture was played at Llandudno on Saturday last. Llandudno won the toss, and Parry put the ball in motion for the visitors. The homesters got down, and Brooks, with a splendid shot, forced a corner, which was splendidly placed, and Parry, with the goal at his mercy, missed. The homesters continued to press, and from a pass by Roberts, Parry scored with a clinking shot. The same player, a few minutes later, made another good attempt, but was not successful. Half-time arrived with the score-Lbndudno, I Newtown, nil. End to end play was the order in the second half, and from these raids each team managed to score two goals, the game thus ending in favour of Llandnclno by 3 goals to 2. Welsh Junior Cup Final. WELLINGTON ST. GEORGE'S v. LLANRWST TOWN. Played at Flint, on Saturday April 14th. Llan- rwst won the toss and played with a strong wind at their backs making good football out of the question. Right from the start St. George's made for the Llanrwst goal and nearly scored. Llanrws! made play towards the other end but could not get the ball in the right direction for goal, being com- z, pletely baffled by the strong wind. It was plain I that the Llanrwst forward rank was considerably weakened by losing their ordinary right wingers. A little before half time St. George's scored, and the teams turned over St. George's 1 Llanrwst o. The second half St. George's made tracks for the Llan- rwst goal and their attempts at scoring with the wind was similar to the efforts of Llanrwst when they had the wind. The Llanrwst team woke up a bit and made strenuous efforts to score and nothing but bad luck prevented them getting two goals. The Llanrwst goalkeeper made some very good saves, but 15 minutes from time a good shot from the left beat him for the second time. So Llanrwst had to retire beaten by 2 goals to nil which they took in a sportsmanlike manner. Lianrwst close their season next Saturday, in a league match with Colwyn Bay. A Great Football Gathering at Rhyl. On Easter Monday the principal attraction was a football competition, organised by the Rhyl United Football Club tor senior chrbs. A handsome silver cup and 11 solid gold medals were offered to the winning team, and eleven silver medals with gold centres to the second. In the junior competition a silver cup and eleven silver medals with gold centres were the first prize, and eleven silver medals the second. In- terest centred chiefly in the senior competition. Newtown were the holders, and had held it for two years in succession. By the rules of the competition the cup would have become their ab- solute property had they won it this year. They accordingly brought down an exceptionally strong team to defend the cup. They were drawn against Flint in the first round, and a splendid game ensued, Flint winn.ng amid much enthusiasm by one goal to nil. The next tie was between Rhyl United and Llanrwst, the former winning by one goal and six corners to nil after all mditferent game. By the t.me that the final was played between Rhyl and Flint between 2,000 and 3,000 spectators lined the ropes. Rhyl outplayed their opponents from the outset, and won by two goals to nil, amid a scene of great enthusiasm. Flint took the second prize. Twenty-two clubs competed for the junior cup, the following being the results:—First round: Rhyl Glanmorfa Swifts beat Rhyl A. M. B. by one goal and two corners to two corners, Rhyl Reserve beat Rhyl Alexandra Rovers by one goal to two corners, Colwyn Bay beat Greenfield Albion by two goals to nil, Ruthin Druids beat Colwyn Bay Park Swifts by one goal to ml, Rhyl Pickwictcs beat Flint United Athletx by three corners toi one corner, Llanrwst Celtic beat Rhuddlan l'hoenix, Crewe Town beat Upper Bangor United by two goals and three corners to one goal and two corners, Rhyl Harlequ.ns beat Mold JunctionLocos by one goal and two corners to one goal and one corner, Chester St John's beat Rhyl Khaki by five goals to one goal, West Kirby beat Blaenau Athletic by one goal and two cor- ners to two corners.

Semi-final: Rhyl Reserves beat Rhyl Pickwicks by two cor- ners to one corner, Crewe Town a bye. The final tie between Rhyl Reserves and Crewe ended in a draw of one goal each, and as the light did not permit of extra time being played -I*t was ar- ranged to replay the tie on another date. At the Close the prizes were distributed by Mr J. W. Jones to the winning teams.
COLWYN BAY v. PENN FIELDS. This game was played on the morning of Easter Tuesday. The visitors are the most prominent team in the Midlands, and though our local eleven gave them a capital game, the re- sult could never be in doubt, as the Penn club won by 5-2. The Whitehouses (Claude and Arthur) were both brilliant in the forward line, and H. Thonna was extremely clever and useful at half. Brother ton at back was very strong. For the locals, Hooper at back and Addenbrooke at half were very useful, and Latimer Jones and Osborne neatly scored. Altogether the hockey season was brought to a very satisfactory and agreeable conclusion by the Easter holidays' matches, which afforded much enjoyment to the opposing players and the large number of spec- tators who patronized the occasions.

Llandrillo and Eirias Urban District School Board. A meeting of this body was held at the clerk's office, Bank Chambers, on Tuesday afternoon last, when there were present, Mr D. O. Williams presid- ing, the Rev J. Grii>.ths, Rev O. J. Davies, Mr John Roberts, and the clerk Mr J. F. Holmes. The Doctor's Certificates. The Clerk intimated that he was unable to dis- cover any firm who could supply them with a printed form of certificate. It was suggested, that as they would so seldom be used, ordinary paper would do. It was however resolved that books be supplied to each of the medical men willing to undertake the duty ofgiving" certificates of ill-health. Master's Report. The Master reported that the attendance at the Higher tirade School was,—average attendance 118 or 77 84 per cent of the number on the registers. With regard to the tenancy of the school house, he requested that it might be made over to Miss Owen, who occupied the premises at the present time. The Board discussed the matter and finally decided to give her notice to quit in the ordinary way, to expire on the 29th September. Changing Schools. It was stated that some parents had removed their children from one school to the other. The Board agreed that they should discountenance this practice as much as possible. Attendance Officers' Reports. Mr J. Roberts, attendance officer, stated that he had no names to bring before the Board, but wished the clerk to write to two of the parents of the children who were partially employed. The officer asked what he was to do with regard to the certificates. It was stated that they were to demand them in all cases where there was a doubt as to whether they were ill or not. Mr Davies, the attendance officer of Old Colwyn, brought some cases, and stated in one case the mother went out working and left the children at home. With regard to the fines imposed, he stated that two out of the three had paid, and that the ether had gone to Llandudno. It was decided to take action to recover these. It was also intimated that the attendance from Llysfaen was no better. The Clerk read two letters received from Mr T. E. Parry, Conway, stating that the matter would be attended to. The Holidays. A letter was read asking that an extra day's holi- day should be given. The Clerk stated he had seen the visitors who granted the holiday. Mr D. C. Williams said he strongly objected to such permission. It was finally agreed that in future they have longer notice, in order that the matter may come before the whole Board. Letter from T. Rees Evans. A letter was read stating that his indentures with the Board had expired in December, and stated that he would like to leave three months earlier. Precepts. It was intimated that the Finance Committee recommended that a precept of 5d in the £ instead of 6d, be made on the rateable value of the dis- trict. Mr John Roberts drew attention to the silisf c- tory state of the Infant School, the grant having nearly doubled itself. J Attendance of Pupil Teachers. With regard to the inquiry as to the above, at the Higher Grade School, a letter was received from Mr W. Evans, which the Board accepted as satis- factory. The Inspector's report, on the various schools was as follows :— Infant School. The Inspector reported that this department was less noisily conducted than of previous years, chorus answering being now discouraged in every class. All the classes are well advanced in the elementary and other subjects, with the exception of the third I' s class whose relative backwardness was mainly due to the frequent absence of its teacher on the plea of ill-health. The infants were kept in good order and well and interestingly taught. Having regard to improved condition of the school, as a whole, he had much pleasure on this occasion in recommend- ing the payment of the highest variable grant. Mixed School. The scholars are fairly well advanced in the year's work, and their attainments in the ordinary and class subjects were creditable to the head teacher and his staff. The weak features of in- struction were discussed with the teacher on the day of inspection. The alterations and improve- ments recommended last year had not been carried out. Rule 14 (6) Schedule VII., which states "That no group of long desks should contain more than four rows of benches and desks," is dis- regarded, as each group contains live rows of desks, &c. In the interest of both teachers and taught the fifth bench should be at once removed. Infants' Class. Though the teachers arc working under disad- vantageous conditions owing to the overcrowded state of the room, the customary efficiency of the class is well maintained, both with respect to the character of the discipline and the. quality of the instruction. The clerk of the Board received intimation that the amounts of grants for the various schools would be as follows; Inkmt school, Colwyn Board School,- £ 165 17s Sd.
