In the second moiefcy Land ran down and forced a corner, which was cleared, and it was followed by continual pressure by the home quintette- Wilkinson receiving off Hugh Jones brought Artie Hughes to his knees, but cleared i.n style. Glyn Williams punted to J. H. Ro- berts, who passed to J. A. Robert. The move- ment wae spoilt by handling, Charley Francis following up an attack on the Pwllheli goal In found tho net with a beauty. After running the whole length of the field J. A. Roberts de- layed in centreing, and W. H. Jones cleared. Following tt. run by Hugh JOlWf-, Willie Land tsted Artie Hughes, and be saved at the ex- pense of an abortive corner.

WELSH AMATEUR CUP. First Round. YET ANOTHER DRAW. (By Dolydd.") Llanrwst .I Llandudno i The meeting between the above clubs in the first round of the Welsh Amateur Cup at Llandudno having resulted in a draw, the game was replayed at Gwydr Park to-day week. Although the rain fell in torrents, yet the ground was well attended, amongst whom was a large sprinkling of Llandudnoites. Mr Slater lined the teams as follows LLANRWST: Gillett; A. Carter and W T. Jones; Humphrey Roberts, R. D. Rich- ards, and Francie Williams G. Chisholm, Howel Roberts, Cleave, A. Richards, and Denis Rogers Jones. LLANDUDNO: C. Stallard; J. H. Jones and W. Wynne; J. Brown, T. John- son, and H. Pearson W. A. Williams, Brookes Evans, J. E. Williams, Bob Davies and Jim Williams. Linesmen J. Jenkins and David Owen The Roosters having won the toss, de- cided to face the river. Jack Williams set the ball going, and tipped to W. A. Wil- liams, who, however, had placed himseli offside. Jim Williams secured in midfield, and dashed along the left wing, testing Gillett with an accurate oblique shot. A fine solo run by Denis looked dangerous, but unfortunately he was fouled at the crucial moment. The ensuing free kick resulted in a useless scrimmage in front of Stallard. NUMBER ONE FOR LLANDUDNO. A combined attack by the visitors' for- wards culminated in a foul on the border of the penalty line. Bob Davies, who took charge of the ensuing free kick, sent the leather under the crossbar, Gillett slipping in the mud in his attempt to clear. The Llandudno supporters cheered vociferously, and indulged in a war whoop, the first goal being scored within eight minutes of the start. Denis next inaugurated a move, and crossed to Chisholm, who scored an offside goal. A free kick against the homesters resulted in a fine drive by Bob Davies right into Gillett's arms. Black stripes still pressed, Trevor and Carter defending well, the movement, however, ended in Jim Wil- liams shooting behind the upright. A pass from Cleave placed Chisholm in a good position, but Wynne met the move by kick- ing out of play. A pretty solo run by Brookes Evans was brought to an abrupt termination by Carter, who punted up to midfield, where a struggle ensued, R. D. Richards coming out with flying colours. Another attack by Llandudno was foiled by Humphrey, who parted to R. D. Richards, who rushed down the field, driving the lea- ther just outside the upright. The Blacks retaliated, but J. E. Williams, hustled by Carter, shot somewhat wide of the mark. Howel was next responsible for a fine run, but failed to evade Wynne's attentions. Brookes Evans met with a similar fate at the hands of Carter when within two vards of the goalmouth. The ball rolled in the direction of Denis, who pounced upon it, end galloped along the left wing, finishing off with a brilliant shot magnificently fielded by Stallard. R. D. Richards driving from nvdfield sent the sphere right into the goalie's hands. Llandudno now pressed, but Evans finished the move somewhat tamelv. A pretty combined movement by the home left wing culminated in Denis being fouled, and R. D. Richards, who took charge of the free kick, skimmed the up- right. Evans next attempted a solo run, but finished off yards wide. Bob Davies dribbling his way through the home de- fence, was tackled by Carter, and got the worst of it. RICHARDS EQUALISES WITH A TERRIFIC SHOT. Archie parted to Cleave, who ran down and sent in a grounder, R. D. Richards let drive from a distance of 30 yards with terrific velocity, and equalised amidst a roar of applause. From this period to the end of the first half the homesters con- tinued to press severely, the visitors kick- ing out of play to relieve the strain. At half-time the score was level. Oil resuming, the visitors immediately pressed, J. E. Williams testing Gillett with a scorcher. After a pretty run Denis cen- tred to A. Richards, who was robbed by J. H, Jones. From a free kick A. Richards skimmed the upright. Mr Slater spoke ro one of the Llandudno players for kicking into touch. Archie tackling the visitors' left wing gained possession, and indulge! n a run all on his own, finishing off with a fine drive, Stallard saving with difficulty. At this period the homesters experienced some luck, J. E. Wiiliams dashing up was hushed bv Trevor and shot somewhat tamelv. For the next ten minutes the game" veered from end to end, but i,eitlier side could score, with the result that- the game ended in a draw of on- goal each.

OEUANWY BEAT LLYsr-AFr4. The l)c'_fa,n\vy Rovero were at home on Satur- day to Liysfaen, before a fair number of spec- tators Mr Williams was the referee. ><:C_;an\y won the toes and elected Jo open t2ie ga.me up the siop-, with a slight bioez/e be- hind their backs- In the first minute LlysfAen neariv .-aooroxl after a fine move on the left.. At the ty-,her end Spring-ail juet missed by inches. From tlho goal-kick, the visitors' right, wing* came awav in good style but were robbed in the nick of time by John Hughes, wiio was playing a fine game. Then T. C. Jones took W:e ball t'o the other end where the visitors' baok had to concede a corner- Spring-all took the kick and jscnt in a beauty which D. Jones headed into the net- After this the visitors tried hard to tiipijiji.se, but the home half-backs kept them in cfoewk- Noait p-assing- bet.wean T. C. Jones and I-'fjrinjTi.l!! resulted ill the latter scoring the' Iio\o.r.i' *cooixl jjoal, after 35 minutes' play. The visitors placed hard and but for the tine goal- keeping of L. W. Jones they would have re, duced the lead at this stage. Haif-time arrived, liowovnr wilih the score: Dojfaawy 2, Llysfacn, Tho second half was more intemoling. Both ends were visited in tmrne and after about 10 minutes' play, a cornier freilil. to the viators who scored. Five minutes later, T. Hughes ooored the third for L)r-gitnv,-y from a neat oentre by Shipley. Llysfaen tried in vain to reduce the lead, as tilie Deyanwy defence were in threat form. Fifteen minutes from time Springall raoed down the wing and scored the fourth for the Seasiders from the corner Hag—the best goal of tihe match. The visitors rallied smartly and the home goaakeeper saved by giving fe corner. Tina was nicely placed, and tihe inside right scored the second for Lilyyfaen four minutes from time. Final: Deganwy Rovers 4, Llytsfaen 2.
SCHOOLBOYS* MATCH AT GOODISON. 1 Liverpool 2 j Wrexham 2 1 On Saturday, the Liverpool boys and Wrex- ham boys played their English Shield game GO the Everton's dub fine enclosure, before a fair number of spectators- At first it seemed ae if the local boys were going to carry all before them, arid they made repeated attacks on the Wrexham goal, but the defence was splendid. At last Newby, centre-forward, got through for Liverpool and scored a fine goo). The W e.J1 boys immediately broke away, and in saving from Jones, centre-forward, the Liverpool goal- keeper simply pushed the ball out and feN in a struggle with Jones for possession- Green, Wrex- ham's outside right, was lying near, and simpJy tapped the ball into the eIn.D,ty goaJ, and equal- ised the scores. A penalty was awarded Wrex- ham, and Trevor Jonee, Wrexham's Interna- tional left back and captain, fired in a terrific shot, and put the Welsh boys ahead. This was the position at half-time. In the second half the play was exciting, both ends being visited in turn, and Jones, from an awkward angle, scraped the post on the wrong side. Five minutes from the end Liverpool put om great pressure, and a fast shot from Reevee, oenire-half, put into hits own gial by Trevor Jones, who until then had not made a single mistake. The replay will take place at Wrexham in a week or so. The Wrexha-m team waa: — Goal, F. Roberts (Gresford Nat.); backs, E. aviies (Pentre Council) and T. Jones (Bry'nteg Council); half-backs, Smith (Brymbo Nat). C. A. Williams (Ltaisnrwgt Na.t.), and C- E. Chee-tham (Wrexham Council); forwards, J. Green (Brymbo Nat.), R. J. Parry (Johnstown Council), H. Jones (Uanrwst Nat.). R. G. Edwards (Brynteg C.), and J. Morris (Wrexham Nat.). (
HOLYHEAD RESERVES V. BANGOR NORMALS. These teams met on Saturday afternoon on the ground of the former. Teams: HOLYHEAD: Dan Jones; W. Brown and R. Lewis; W. Taylox, Robert Owen and Jim Evans; Owen Williams, Hugh Williams, IIyam, H. O. Jones, J. Mac-kay. NORMAL COLLEGE—T. Williams; W. C. Lloyd and W. J. G, Phillips; W. Ferguson (oaptain), W. J. Evana and J. McClennard; B. Davies. Hannaby, lta;inee and Rogers- The visitors won the toss, and Hyam set the ball in motion. The start was aensational, as in the first minute H. Williams drew first blood with a capital shot.. Rogers finished a splendid run on the loft with a tine centre, whioh was pounced upon by Davies, who equalised. A corner fedl to the Reserves, which proved abortive This was quickly followed by another to the visitors, which was sent behind. A further corner was followed, a magnificent effort by Humphrey Jones. A beautiful move by the visitors was the next noteworthy incident, a fine centre from Rogers resulting, which Hannaby took when on the run, and with a fine judgment he placed the ball wide of Dan Jones. Rogers was again on the move, but this time Taylor foiled him. From a throw- in to the Reserves, Hugh Williams received, and let drive on the instant, the ball enter- ing the far corner and striking the upright, H. O. Jones making doubly sure. From a run up by the homesters, O. Williams re- ceived, and sent across a finely judged centre, which Hyam met with his head, and placed his side in front. Shortly afterwards the visiting defence had a very sultry time cf it, Williams having to throw clear three times in rapid succession, O. Williams, Hyam, and H. O. Jones each having a pop. It was a marvel that the goal was kept intact, so severe was the pressure. The Reserves were having more of the play, and ere long H. U. Jones had placed them still further ahead with a shot which left Williams impotent. A corner to the Normalites wa3 placed behind. A good attempt was made by Hyam, but the ball sailed over the bar, after which the Collegians went off with a rush, Hannaby re- duing the lead with a fast rising shot. With the aid of the wind, it was thought that upon resuming the visitors would be all over their opponents, a.nd that the end of the ga.-r:e would eeo tlhem victorious. Such. however, did not prove to be the case. Though t,he Colleg- ians had much more of the game all the storing was done by the Reserves. The visitors gave a pretty display of footwork up to a cer- tain point, but they were all r"t sea when it came to scoring- Holyhead soon added their filtil goal, W'hClh materialised as the outcome of a dashing run by H. O. Jones, he doing the ncea-;iil with a. slow dhot which Williams -should certainly have stopped. From the centre, away went the NormeiiiteB, Rogers being extremely on the left, outwiitting Brown (Tay- lor had gone to take up tlho le:t full portion) he Et.?ca't across a lovely middk, but llamwuby was foiled when about to shoot. From this on- wards, the visitors did nearly all the attacking, Taylor, Robt. Owen, and Dan Jones proving valiariit defende rs. The gixtlh goal fell to ITugih Williams, the bail literally rowing into the net at a snail's mice. The seventh followed a. n "2 centre from -kc. Maokay, H. 0. Jones putting on the finishing touch- Number eight ak-o was scored by tihis clever oppoitninist, while the ninth and last, was tlie reeu'lt of a finely-placed centre from 0. Wiiliciirifi- which Mackay met, and thus completed the discomfiture of the Nor- mals. Final: Holyhead Res., 9; Bangor Nr- mals 3.

CONWAY WHISPERS. It was a poor game at Conway on Saturday when the Blues trounced the Llambcri3 men to the tune of five goals to one. < < Wretched weather affected the "gate" and the game. Llanberis rnuiit improve very much if they are to reach a reopectable position on the League chart. < The Blues were easily the best team, although tihey piayed a weak eade. » it » » Wilson guardTd the breach in the first haM, whilst Llew "Bach" was in the forward line at iniaide right. » » Tom Jones was at Denbigh assisting the Ban- Clor Comilwnation team, and Bob Owen filled the vacancy at back, he and '"Now" Ellis being a sound pair. < » it Will Owen, a youth, who has played with Con way Oetes for two seasons, was given a triml at centire-hailf, and shaped fairly well, though he was rather sloW". Will Evans again justified his inclusion in the team, and Sam Hughes put up a good show- Joe Hughes was the pick of the forward lino, and he led the quintette in a most happy fashion- Arthur Wildaiii.9, a Colwyn Bay youth, played in Ot-iiisiae right position, and taking into con- sideration the fact that it was his lir&t League gaine he gave a creditable display, feeding Tom Criavc-.ii with good judgment. » Craven was smart, and ro was Sam Parry on the extreme left, whilst Wilson did not do at all badly when he exchall,ged places witih Llew Parry in the eseooitd moietv. IJLCAV was injured for the first time since he htae been keepmig' goal, and had to leave the field about ten minutes before the whistle sounded time. The Llanberis back division was perhaps the beet dej>artn;on,t. of tlio team, for their forwards lacked ooheoion, and never sihaped well.

FESTINIOG NOTES. When it in taken into consideration that the Qaajirymea fai'kd to play their beat combination against tho doughty students tu Saturday at New borough Park their display against toich a strong teain was meritorious. Of the homesters, the best man was undoubt- edly Tom Hugb-sl' right full-back, whooe clear- ances were neat and well judged. Of the trio, Will Jonea. as us-uail. played a great game. His tackiung was a pleuouire to watch. I was vciry j^isaoed to observe Penny back in the half-back line. He a-niply justified his inclu- sion in the team by several remarkable and that at n. period when they wero badly needed- J » » The fact that to scored agu'nst his Own side shoiud not militate against him.

WELSH FOOTBALL. PROPOSED NORTH v. SOUTH MATCHES. A deputation from the North Wales Coast Footbahl Association recently met a deputation from South Wales with a view to discussing the proposed inter-provincial matches. The de- putation, which comprised Messrs R. J. Hughes, J. W. Post, J. Ll. Williams, and S. Willmann, have reported to their association that after the idea had been cfecuseed in its various pb.asoe6tlre South Wales repre eaniati v-tjs were convinced of the benefits, not particularly financial, but to the game in Wales generally, which would result from its being' earned into effect, more especial- ly the benefit from the en-couragementt of young players wi'thin the jurisdiction of the two asso- ciations. As an experiment it was propoeed that two Matcdlet3 be played, one in the North and the other in the South, all the expenses to oume out of the two gates, and amy surplus to be alia red between the associations, or any deficit to be made good equally by the two associa- tions- As an alternative it was proposed that each association should be responeible for the expenses of the match and should bake the re- ceipts. With regard to the proposed change in the ene.nw of the North Wales Coast Asso- ciation, as it will involve an extension of area, it haa to be considered by a. "commission" ap- pointed by the Welsh Association, and delegates to represent the Coast Association have been appointed.
NORTEF WALES FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION. A meeting f the North Wales Coast Football Association was held to-day week :.t Llandudno Junction, Mr R. J. Hughes pre- sichng. Holyhead protested against the qualifica- tion of players in the Pwllheli team who defeated them in the recent tie. The ground of objection was that the players were not registered according to rule four. Mr Weekes stated the case for Holyhead, and Mr D. Jones that for Pwllheli. It was decided that, as the error was technical and due to inadvertence, the match hold good. NORTH WALES AMATEUR CUP. The draw for the next round resulted as follows :—Bangor v. Rhyl Grange or Den- bigh Town, referee Mr Welch. Crewe; Flint v. Conway, referee Mr A. C. Slate-r, Llandudno; Llandudno Amateurs -nd Pwllheli byes.

CARNARVON v. 'VARSITY. Played at Carnarvon on Saturday afternoon. Final: University College 9, Carnarvon 0-
HOCKEY HITS. The North Wales Hcckcy Selection Committee, consisting of Misses H. 0. Doughty Davies, Col- wvn Bay; W. Gunner, II. E. Roberts, and E- B- Jones, met last last night to select the teams for the first inter-Wa'-C3 trial match, East v. West. I hope they will have chosen the best men. Ba-dges are grant-ad for this match and capis for the next trial North v. South. .1 note that both the Inter-Wales trial matches are to be played at Llandudno. I think it a pity. Whv not distribute honours somewhat? Now that Portmadoc have once more a team, why not play there? I doubt if there is a ground like it in Wales. It was a sterling game, played under bad weather conditions on the 'Varsity ground on Saturday, and I consider Holyhead were unlucky to be beaten 3—0. Phillips, of Hoivhend, stood out head, and shoulders above other players, and with out question should receive higher honours this vear. Ellas, of the 'aVrsity, was very sound. Portmadoc were unlucky to have their match scratched with Dolgelley. Still, I hope they won't loose heart. Why has Rhyl-the home of Welsh hockey -not got a club? There are quite a lot of old players, for the most part internationals and inter-Wales men. I do not think it would be very difficult to re-start the game there. Will no one take it up?
HUNTING. FLINT AND DENBIGH HOUNDS. The gales and rainstorais having subsided, at any rate for the present, more agreeable conditions titan those recently prevalent were associated with the poiatmcnt on Saturday at Rlmddkwi, where a large and representative following assembled, amongst wh ,1-1 were, besides the master, Lieut.-Col. R. W. \Vuhams- Wvan, Mrs WUliams-Wynr., Lord Mcstyn, Sir i'yprs W, Mostyn, the Hon. EIwai-cl Moc4yn, Colonel A. Mesha.n, Mr and the Mia^es Hibby, MiM Ho v. ard, Mr and Kneesliaw, Mr W. Ccnwy Bell, Mr Lloyd, Mr Lane, Mr Buddinfrha-m, Mr C, L. Fosbery, Mr Hughea (Cacr- wys), and reveral other spectators on wheels tnd on foot. The torrential rain had put the country m a very sodden state, so that the master decided to proceei at once to the higher ground, Ejecting Cwm for tne firts draw. Hound soon had a fox on its pads, and its wav up through the woods to the top of the moun- tain, when eeent failed. After trying to no purpose two'or three haunts in the vicinity, a move was made- to the neighbourhood of Dyfertb, which proved *»coess- I ful, as at Ochr-y-fcel a fox WilE pushed out of a covert-, and facing the open he ran a'.cng the rock and then, left handed down to the lower ground over field and furrow to Newmarket, where he was lost. The Cop Hill was next tried, but proved tensntless. Returning through Newmartet, bounds got an the track of a frc.3h I fox, which provided the longest run of the day, leading his pursuers by way of Terfyn and the Traveller's to Lake Helyg, and disappearing at the grazing grounds. This was a three-mile point to point, but about five miles the distance run, and over very fair hunting country. Scent was scrappy, but hounds worked well and stuck to their p-itot in eacih instance, in spite of numerous ohecks.. The air wns keen with a ourh of frost and many of the mountains on the other side of the Vale of Clwyd were covered with snow.

RUTHIN URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. Mr Thomas O. Jones (Nant Clwyd) pre- sided at the monthly meeting of the above Council on Monday. HEALTH STATISTICS. The Medical Officer (Dr. T. O. Jones) re- ported that for the month ended December 4th seven deaths and 19 births had been re- gistered, giving annual death and birth rates of 10.2 and 27.05 per thousand of the popula- tion. The district was quite free from in- fectious diseases. EXTRAORDINARY TRAFFIC. The Surveyor for the Llanrhaiadr district (Mr E. Evans) called attention to the shock- ing condition of the Denbigh to Cerrigydruid- ion-road. between the borough boundary and Pfolt, caused by extraordinary traffic carried on by the Denbigh Corporation, and it was decided to ask the last named authority to give the macadam necessary to remedy the same. WAEN WATER SUPPLY. The Clerk reported that three owners of property—Mrs Jane Williams, Rossa Fawr; Mr Samuel Evans, Forest; and the trustees of the Nantglyn Parochial Charities de- clined to assent to the scheme of water sup- ply for the hamlet of Waen, Nantglyn, which the Council proposed to carry out at a cost of .£60. It was unanimously decided to serve those named with notice calling upon them to pro- vide their properties at their own expense, or to fall in with the Cttuncil's scheme. Ihe Clerk incidentally remarked that the trustees of the charities were likely t» con- sent in a few days. WORKMEN'S HOURS. A short discussion arose on a return sub- mitted by the Clork, showing the working hours, etc., of roadmen in this and other dis- tricts, prepared in consequence of a complaint made at the last meeting that some of the men were in the habit of leaving work before time. It was pointed out that in this matter the Ruthin district compared favourably with other districts, and it was decided to take no action in the matter.
RUTHIN BOARD OF GUARDIANS. WORKHOUSE CHILDREN AND THE BOARD:NG OUT SYSTEM. Mr J. H. Simon presided over the fort- nightly meeting of this B6ard on Monday. THE HOUSE. The Master reported the number of paupers to be 111, as against 83 on the corresponding day last year. The number of vagrants re- lieved during the past fortnight was 97, an increase of 20. It was further reported by the Master that Mrs Currey, Vaclilwyd Hall, and Mrs Sweten- ham, Plas Newydd, had sent grapes for the sick inmates. Illustrated papers had been received from Mrs Calvert, Llanbedr Hall; coffee and sweets from Miss Roberts, con- fectioner, Ruthin, and Miss Roberts, cookery mistress, County School.—A hearty vote of thanks was accorded to these ladies for their gifts. CHILDREN'S PLEA FOR COTTAGE HOMES: INTERESTING LETTER. The Clerk read the following letter which he had received from the workhouse children: "Dear Sirs,I am taking the pleasure cf writing this letter to ask ycu will you kindly let us have cottage homes, or stay here. I hope you will all agree to let us. We are all sending votes; I hope you will agree with these votes—For Mr Simon and the Clerk, cottage homes or stay here, 15 votes; for Mr Wm. Ellis and Mr Stephens, boarding out, two votes. If you cannot get enough money, the Dukes will pay, or the County Council. Hoping to hear you will all agree." The letter was received with much laughter. It should be explained that at the previous meeting the Chairman (Mr Simon) and the Clerk strongly advocated the erection of cottage homes, whilst Messrs Ellis and Stephens were the proposer and seconder re- spectively of a resolution to adopt the board- in out system, v.hich was carricd. The Clerk said the children had read the report of the meeting in the local press, und that it had created quite a sensation amongst them, hence the letter in question. A short discussion took place, but no re- crklttHrvn wa • nassrd.
