Rhyl County School v. Denbigh County School. This matcb tcok place on the Denbigh ground last Saturday. The Rhyl team was repFesentedi by only ten men, and! were thus at a great dis- advantage. They were as follo;ws:-Goal, 'Morris; 'backs, Davies and Robinson; halves, J. Lloyd, Buckley, and J. W. Jones; forwards, T. E. Jones, A. Williams, J. Pearson, and J. Lunt. The Denbigh captain won the toss, and elected to kick first with the wind, which was blowing strongly across the ground. As a re- sulle, the balll was' continually out, and this de- tracted from the interest of the game. .1,e Derfhigihi attack was strong, but owing to the wind', shooting was bad. After some time, however, Rhyl had a 'look in., with the result that a splendid goal was scored. Tihis aroused the Denbigh men, and they also notched a. point; from an excellent centre. About ten minutes before half-time ithe Rlhyl tea;m again scored from an individual effort. It looked as if the score would remain as it was until half- time, but tihe Denbigh team equalised with a shot which gave no clhance to the Rhyl goal- keeper. Play was quite uninteresting" in the second half, owing 10 the weight of the Den- bigh team. Nelither goal was seriously menaced, with tihe exception of one or two corn- ers into the Rhyl goal, unlriil a few mi-nutes 'be- fore time, when a vigorous "potting" at the Denbigh goal took place. The goalkeeper was quite pirepared1, however, and when the w!histle 'blew no change had taken place from 'the half- time score. This is the first match which the Rhyl County School team has not won since the match at home with Holywell, and' which resulted in a win for Rlhyl by six goal to nil.
Rhuddlan Reserves v. St. Asaph Rovers. The return maitch between these teams was played at St. Asaph last Saturday, before a large crowd of spectators. The Ruhdldlan cap- tain winning tihe toss, played with the wind in his favour. The game was even until five minutes within half-time, when the Rovers scorfed. Half-time St. Asaph, i Rhuddlan, o..During ithe second! half the wind interefexetdi with the players, and the play was in favour of the Rovers; but the fine defence of Rhuddlan managed to keep the ball .from the goalmouth. SeveraJl corners were claimed! against Rhuddlan, but no score resulted. Rhuddlan made several ineffectual runs, on the left wing. Edwin Wil- liams scored two goals against his team, and) Jliml Tomlinson also scored one. Griffiths played a fine game in goal; and could not be Maenad for the goals scored. The right wing was very weak for the visitors. About ten minutes' from time, 'Gardner, having an opening, scored another goal for the Rovers, leaving the result: St. Asaph, 5; Rhuddlan, nil. The pick of the team for Rhuddlan. was Griffiths, R. T. Williams, and Edlwin Williams. 4.
The d'ea). -Ih occurred, on Saturday at Scots- wood1, near Newcasftle-on-Tyne, of Mr William) Swaddle, the well-kn'oiwn 'builder of racing boats.
Football Chips. (BY "VIGILANT.") I notice that the Conway Conovians are still on the path of triumph. That they outclassed the "Hen Ad'ar" on Saturday last in the return match a,t Conway. That OUlt off six matches played, they have c'nly lost once. (jco. Bangor). "That Bangor on that: occasoin were lucky to wtm. That a lot of the success they have.had is due to playing (the game. That if they continue on these lines they will secure' a good position at the end of (lhe season. That 1am Farrington has signed on for the, Conovians, and that he is likely to appear in their ranke against Bangor N'onmal College to- morrow. That IBdb Jones, late of Colwyn Bay, played for Conway again 011 Saturday. That he is' a tower of strength to the it earn. That the Conovians have evidently secured an acquisition in him. That iBab always was a capital player. That the display at Conway o'f the, "Hen Adlar" of Pennaaenmawr was of a very w:oldl de- scription. That great lack of judgment was shown in ,their movements. That the "Pennymicres" must settle down to more steady work. That tiheir material is wolf-hy of better work. That I do not yet lose faitlh in the quarry- men, Thaft I have always admired the players and the commit'tee. That I must ask them once more really to play up. That there is not much glory in earnting tihe "wcoden spoon." That surely the "Pennymofes" do hot mean to have it thrust on them. Thaiz, like other tea/ms, they have some stiff jobs on hand. That I wish them good luck and! success. That the Llandudno Amateurs met the "Roosters" in a League match on Salcurday ait Llandudno.. That it was the Amateurs' first appearance' at home this season in a League match. That they have been presented' with new col- ours by Messrs Lee and Luther, two enthusiastic comimiytee men. That they have discarded- the white jerseys for amlber and black, vertically striped, a la Wolverhampton Wanderers. That with snow-like knickers .'¡hey look very smart. That owing to the high wind the correct game could not. be played'. Thalt the ^Roosters" had the advantage of the wind in the first half. That they failed to turn their several advan- tages to account. That the "Rooster" was "plucked" again. That in the second half tihe Amateurs regis- tered' two uncommonly smart goals in abouit the first five minutes. That there was practically only one team in the second half of the game. That that team was not the dejected "Rooster." That the "Roosters" were supposed to have a good team, on the field. That Lee Blackwall was in goal. That Lei is idh'e fourth goalkeeper the "birds" haive -tried' this season. That next to Hayes he is the: best. That the "'Roosters" must he undergoing the process of moulting. zzl 11 That it wil'l be a pleasure to record their first win. "IlhaI have seen two wonderfully helpful. liutle handbooks invaluable to committees and players. That every footballer should possess a copy of the Wirral District1 Association Football Handbook with 100 questions and answers on the laws of the game. Price, 2d!. That the other Ibook is the referee's charit of the Footiball Asscciation, Limhedah the same pr:ce. That the diagrams in the latter on Idhe new rules are splendid. That the law of suspending a player is some- what like the English criminal lawvery un- evenly administered. That one rough player who offends yearly only gets 14 days' suspension, whilst a firsits offender gets 28 d)ays. (Why this thusn,ess?) That P'ortniadoc in their third League match have been defeated. That the event toolk place aiti 'Bangor, on 'Sat- urday. Tha't the Bangor second eleven managed to do the trick this year. That the Pbntmen were very lucky, indeedi, not to be beaten by three more. goals. Thaft Evans1, Burns, and Tom Thomas missedi three nenaiities. That suclh failures are almost unprecedented. That the usual luck again attended the Port- men in tfois case. That other teams' will run the champions of the League a tight race. That ifc will take the Portmen all their time to holdi their place of honour. That the Llandudno Amateurs mean to keep the 10-1 d'efealt in mind. Thatc they hope to reverse this result at the ne.xlt op p o ntunity. That I am at opinion that, barring accidents, they can do it. That the game will be a good one. That iBangor hold, a good position on the League table. That they are undefeated. That the Porit.men will be sure to make her- culean efforts to avenge their defeat when they meet at the Port town. That the vii-,cit.c,ry of the Colwyn Bay team ove'r the: (:fm"¡er Reserves in the Bay on Saturday was a. bit clever. That tihe "13 ay it es are in the next round of the Soames' Charity Cup Competition. That they are: a strong eleven. Tha't their oup tie with Llandudno will be a raltkling good: affair. 'That the meeting this time' is at Colwyn Bay. That the Amateurs have 'beaten the. Bayites in another cup tie. by a single goal. That the spirit of entering the Welsh, Senior Cup Competition by the two1 "locals" is exem- plary. That Bellis, of Llanrwst, will make a good centre-forward'. That Ohisholm has found a position in the- Llanrwst first team. That he fulily deserves his place. That "Gren" Jones has still a lelt more, foot- ball in him. That he is the personification of coolness. Tlhal: Willie Owen did not' shine on Saturday as he has done lately. That Roberit David' is fast developing into a good, reliabffei back. That he has plenty of pluck. Tlhait he well deserves to be included in the' "Roosters' ranks. That Francis is also an improved half-back. That Anderson and Hotdhkiss were very clever in the forward ranks of the Amateurs on Saturday. Thait"the Amateurs have a good1 forward line. That Priitcfhard may improve. That Johnnie, Williams is the useful man of the Amateurs. That his hack play on Saturday was the best on the field. That he chips in sweetly when danger threaic- ens. Tihat his style pleased me much. ThaA J. Lunt is a good partner for him. Thiait he is very cool when pressed. Thai Georgie Davies is as good as ever as cen tre-hali. That Jacob Williams is a sure tackier. Thait W. Roberts helps to make up a good trio. That Bob Welch has been seen in better form ,tih a n on Saturday. That 'Bob is a good captain. That he will shine ere the season is much older. Tthat Willie Alknan was a spectator on Sat- urday. That his knee is getting better. That Willie will play as soon as he can. That. David Griffiths is a splendid oukside right. Thalt the Amateurs have a nut to crack when thev meet: Colwyn Bay in a Senior Cup Tie. That tihe game will be highly interesting. That the. 'Bet'twsyaoed fceam beat the Llan- diudno Junction Laces, at the former place, by seven goals to nil. That Befdtws have a .big thing on when Port- madoc Reserves meet them in rBetttws in Janu- ary. "That the villagers will give tlhe Potmen a good game. That; comparatively speaking, the Port Re- serves are a sturdy lot of veterans at the game. -n- at ,I,fr Platt is a good secretary for Bettws. That I sfhall have more to say next week.

Rhyl Football Notes. (By "CRITIC.") Rhyl v. Rhuddlan. Those who expended! their money on Satur- day last in witnessing the match (?) with the Rhudidlan Club's representatives must have been disappointed from almost every point of view. The Rhyl Committee, being without a fixture for .the first team, either at home or away, decided upon accepting an offer from the neighbourin'g club. To; comply with the engagement, they made a selection, as far as was possible, of the Re- serves, but even in this particular, mattters did not turn out as was anticipated!. "Critic" has seen the Reserves' full eleven doing d'uity on a previous occasion, and had: they been at full strength on Saturday the visitors might have been "pulverised." Whatever disappointment was created, it must have been compensated for by the extreme amusement crelated in the course of the.. play. One or two of the Rhyl first team, were "spotted" on the field. The visitors were minus several players, their vacancies being filled by men of the home club. Friendly fixtures are not looked upon with iprach favour by football enthusiasts, and consequently there are seldom large "gates." Such wa's t'he case on Saturday afternoon. Those who braved the elements— andl "Critic" was amongst the number—deserv- ed the proverbial biscuit. There was quite a gale prevailing throughout the game, but apart from. this detrimental fea- ture, good football was at a discount. If the idea was to afford the players of the Rhyl club a, practice game, this was partially successful; 'but even then there was not an apparently good practice. Scramble and kick was the order and the players could do nothing but excel in this. Some players indulged in making the best use of their weight, whilst others were, guilty of shady tactics, which would, have called forth a stern rebuke 'by a referee, had the game been between Combination, teams. 'Perhaps the least said is soonest mended:, and whilst the play partook of a somewhait "go-as-you-please" char- acter, harsh criticism is needless. But what o'f the spectators who attended' to see a proper match? The play was desultory at times, with flashes of leg-mania, and! the topsy-turvey positions of some of the players were ludicrous. "Critic" has cherished the idea that the spectators would not, after 'all, begrudge the admission money, seeing they had Z, 9 their worth in laughter. The zest with which some of the visa tors entered upon their work reminded one of players who were upon trial; and when the first goal came from, an effort of tht outside left, well, there was jubilation. The play ended in a draw of one goal each- nothing more appropriate, for there was "six of one" and' "half-a-dozen of the other." One thing s'truck "Critic" as a dead cent., and that was the men had plenty of exericisei and lung inflation, etc. and if these are considered ne- cessary qualities to make good footballers, then the game was not without its advantages. Let us hope the players, when next seen as ardent contestants, will acquiT, 'themselves worthy of the event.
County Appointments in Carnarvonshire. New Coroner and Clerk to the County Council. THE county authorities of Carnarvon had' quite a hatch of important county appointments to dispose of on Thursday, and they did the work in a businesslike way. Mr Bodvel Roberts held a number of offices himself. The, County Council and Police Committee adopted) the policy of distributing them among different per- sons. Thfe result i's that Mr J. Penfar Williams, a Bangor solicitor and an active Liberal worker in the county, becomes the county coroner; Mr J. T. Robertsils madte -diepu,ty:clerk of the peace (which, me-ans in practice clerk to the County Council) as well as returning officer; and Mr E..Harrison) Morns receives the clerkship to. the deputy clerk of the peace. The Coronership. There were six candidate's for the coroner- ship, viz., Captain Biddtell, Holyhe,ad; Mr E. W. Davies, (solrcitor, Carnarvon; Mr Evans Jones, solicitor, Bango.r; Dr Robert Par.ry, Car- narvon; Mr J. Pentir Williams, srol,iiCitor, Ban- gor; and Mr C. H. Rees, solicitor, Carnarvon. All the- with the ,ex-ception of Captain Biddell, were conversant with Welsh. The' Clerk said that he had' written to Captain) Biddell, asking him, whether he knew Welsh, and had received .a reply, in which Captain BidkMl saidl: "I am sorry I do not speak Welsh, but I speak several, other languages—(laughter)—in- cluding Hindustani. (Laughter.) In Ithe event of my getting the billet, I would make it a point to learn. Welsh." (Renewed laughter.) The vote was then taken by ballot, with the following result r—Captain Biddell and Mr Evans Jones received no vote's; .'Mr C. H. Rees, 4; Dr Parry, 6; Mr Ellis W. Davies, 12; and Mr Pentir Williams, 27. Mr Pentir Williams was then1 notified' of his appointment, and' duly acknowledged his elec- tion. Mr Perrttir Williams, the new coroner, is a solicitor practising at Bangor. He was admit- ted in 1892, as a iB.A. of London, acted for some time as managing clerk to Mr J. R. Wil- liam's, coroner 'for Montgomeryshire, and since r895 has been in practice on his own account at Bangor. He has been a. member of the Carnar- vonshire County Council for the last three vears and of the Bangor City Council for the same period1. He now necessarily vacates the, former office, but continues to hold fche latter. Since 1897 he had acted' as secretary of the Arvon Lib- eral Association. He' has appointed D. G. Davies, solicitor, Bethesda, as deputy coroner. County Council Clerkship. IMr J. Allanson Pic.ton presided: over a meet- ing of the Carnarvonshire Joint Police Com- mittee, specially summoned for t'he. purpose of appointing a deputy clerk of the peace to dis- charge, the duties of clexk to the County Coun- cil. The Chairmanannouncool that there were four applicants for the post, viz., Messrs J. Jones Morris (Portmadoc), Charles H. Rees (Carnarvon), J. Thomas' Roberts (Carnarvon), and J. Trevor Roberts (Carnarvon). He added.1 thaft all the applicants, with the exception of Mr T. T. Roberts, had supplied each member of the committee with their applications and testimonials, a,rici it was arranged:1 thalr the ap- plication of ".Nlr J. T. Roberts should be read! to the. committee. The committee voted by ballot, when it trans- pi,redi that Mr J. T. Roberts had obtained'. 16 votes, Mr J. Trevor Roberts 4, Mr Jones Morris 3, and Mr Charles H. Ree-s r, the result being received1 with cheers. The Chairman, in informing the successful n, applicant of his appointment, said that thev all wished him a lonsr and succ-esful career of pub- lic service in the' honourable office to which he had been appointed. (Cheers.) Mr Rohelrts replied that he was exceedingly gratified to hear the result, and whether or not the best man had been appointed, he gave his as-surance that no efforts would be wantine on his part to prove that no better man- could be appointed. (Hear, hear.) Mr D. P. Williams moved the appointment of a committee to deal with'the duties of Mr E. Harrison Morris, clerk to the depute clerk of the peace. This was .seconded, and' agreed to. The new official is a nalrive of Carnarvon. He was articled to Messrs Tmnerand .Allanson, solicitors, and admitted in 1884, since when he has been a familiar figure- as an advocate in the various courts of the district. He has been a member of t'he Carnarvon Town. Council .for ten years and of the County Council for six and a half years.
