Griffith made his initial appearance since his transfer from Glasin- fryn This was also Hughie Lewis' first appear- itiioo after his re-installation in the League- After pressure by Llechid, T. L. Robertef ran up and centred well, but the opportunity was kxst. Before long", Hugh Jones tested Griffiths who cleared well. Morns Parry centred nioeiy with an overhead kick. Thomas Jones for Liechid. p Un tL- a well. Francis ran down and centred nicely to Dan Jones, who passed the ball on, but Will Jones cleared. Hugh Jones received the ball, and passed to 1.an-d, who sent ever the goal line. T. L. Ro- berta received from Davies, but offside spoilt further progress. Davies received again from the right willig and tested Thompson, who cleared at the expense of a corner. Ellis Williams cleared, and the home forwards put in some delightful combination, and carried the leather to the LLeohid goal, where R. A. Griffith made a splen- did save. Griffiths again rush-ed out and cleared but Land secured the ball, when. W. Jones cleared to touch. The teams at tliifi stage seemed to be very evonly matched, both end being visited in tarn. A foul against Carnarvon enabled tho Swifts to continue their pressure, but T. L. Roberts shot over the goal-line. Morris Parry ran up the left, when Ellis Williams cleared- Dan. Jones fioored the first point for Carnarvon. Hugh Lewis cleared, and Thomas sent in, when Mor- ton punted the baJl down the field. Several corners fell in quick succession, but proved fruit- less. Dan Jones sent in a beautiful shot, which Griffiths succeeded in clearing. Thomas secured and passed to Tom. Roberts, who forced a corner, which Davies headed past the post. T. L, Roberts centred splendid and Davies tried to score, but Thompson cleared. Llechid kept up the pressure, and Thos. Ro- berts sent over. Half-time-: Carnarvon, 1; Llechid Swifts, 0. Llechid opened the second half, and forced a corner, which Lovell cleared, and Wilkin- son centred the leather. Both ends were visited in turn, but Llechid seemed to be attacking stronger, and on two or three occasions they had some good tries for goal, but the home defence prevailed. W. Thomas ran through the home defence, when R. Ll. Roberts scored, but the referee pointed to a free kick for off-side. Llechid still main- tained the pressure. Final Llechid Swifts 3, Carnarvon 2.

WELSH AMATEUR CUP. (SECOND ROUND). SEASEDERS VANQUiSH CONWAY. Llandudno 1 I | Conway 0 1 I Alter neating1 J j;uirwfit In tlloC nrsõ rounu 01 1 the Welsh Amateur Cup the Llandudno Amateurs met Conway in the second round at Llandudno, on Saturday, and suceeoded. after a tÜUlgh struggle, in passing to the third round by beating the B;uc6 with t-he narrow margin of one goal- Uhe g'round looked very uninviting when the players turned out- and the weather was wretched througliout the play. But. despite the inclemency of the weather the strung-Jo was eagerly watched by a good number of vpect-a- to; Mr Miller of Cheater, lined up the t.a,iiis ap í c.i!ows LLANDUDNC Slallard J. H- Jon<v, and J. Lunt; J. Brown, Johnson and H. Pearson; W. A- Williams, Brookes-Evans, J. E- Williams, Bob Davies and Jnri Williams. ■ CONWAY: Llew Parry; Tom Jones and f Mow Ellis; W. Evans, Bob Owen, and Sain I Hughes, T. Craven, E- O. Davies, Joe Hughes, I J. R. Jones and Sam Parry. The visitors won the toss and decided to play toward the hill". The game opened in a blind- ing downpour of sleet, which continued through- out the greater part of the first half- Conway eventually secured a corner, which Lunt saved well. The Amateurs made a desperate attempt when W. O. Williams tried a well-aimed shot which struck the post. The homesters con- tinued the pressure and Jim Williams essayed ft nice shot which was well saved by Parry. Some end to end play followed after which Brookes-E-rans got i>o«ession and got in a eplendid shot which Parry saved in grand style. The Amateurs ke'pt the play well within the ) visitors' half and severely tested their defence, but, it alwLJB proved equal to the occasion and when half-time was celled neither side had ecored. After the restart Bob Davies sent in a good Rhot, which passed outside, and in another minute Brookes-Evans ran through and scored from a good pass by Johnson. At the other end Conway were awarded a penalty but failed to ■score- and the leather was soon returned to the other end- Brookes-Evans shot wide of tho mark when in a good position. Llandudno were now continually pressing. From a breakaway, Conway got two corners in quick succession, which proved fruitless. Llandudno appeared to have the best of the play, but the visitors' de- fence was strong, Llew Tarry effecting some exceiknt saves. Lkmuudno Amateurs 1, Conway o.
PORTMADOC v. TOWYN ROVERS. | Portmadoc 1 J Towyn Rovers 1 Played at Portmadoc on Saturday, the raferee being Mr E. Lloyd Wiiliams, Bangor. Throughout the first half play was fairly equal in attack a.nd defence. For the visitors Harry Jones, T. Wynne, Dr. Davies, Glad- stone Evans, and E. 0. Roberts did good work. Prominent a.mongst the homesters were Arthur Hughes, G. Evans, T. Jones, Edw. Joac-s, and Boh Jones. The whistle Bounded half-time before either side had eco-od. in the second moiety the game wa-s more ex- citing. Owen Jones scored for Portmadoc. rlay reigned in midfield for a time, and though Portmadoc frequently left gaps in their ranks, their opponents failed to break through. H. Edwards, from a pass by Evan Jones, put in the first goal for U'owyn. Final: Portmadoc, 1; Towyn Rovers, 1.
FRIENDLIES, INTERESTING PRACTICE GAME AT HOLYHEAD. i v (By Critic.) j llolyheiid Swifts 6 J llolybsad Reserves 1 Some time ago the Reserves challenged their senior brethren to a friendly encounter upon the first vacant date. This was taken up, and the match came off on Saturday before a lair number of spectators. Mr W. R. Welch, Crewe, had charge of the gr-me. SWIFTS Dan Jones; Geo. Carlisle and Roland Wiiliams W. Brown, \V. T. Jones, and R. El!is; J. Jones (Wallace), R. C. Jones- Hugh Williams, W. S. Owen, and L. McNeil. RESERVES Collier; \V. Taylor and R. Lewis; Robert Owen, T. HYâm, and Jim Evans; Hugh Brown, Hugh Williams, Louis Jones, H. O. jones, and J. Jones < ndon-road). In consequence of a heavy downfall of rain recently, the ground was on the heavy side, while a strong wind blew in the direc- 1 tion of the town goal. Capt. McKinstry (the club's president) kicked off amid cheers, prior to which he had addressed a few words to the players appealing for the gaifte to be fought out fairly. The Reserves won the toss and elected to bene- fit by the wind. The Swifts gained a futilo corner in the first minute, the Reserves returning the compliment a moment later. W. Brown failed to put in an appearance, thenrs-t team relying upon ten men, and playing the one- baok game. A nice bit of play by II. 0. Jones resulted in his testing C-olliex with a fine long tshot. He cleared all right, but Hugh Willi.a.ma pounced on the return and netted al-nid loud cheers. Collier again had to save from another fine effort by H. O. Jollies. At this stage, Owen Williams turned up, enabling Carlisle to partner Roland Williams- Collier saved a splendid shot from Hugh Brown from off the touch lino. A corner to the cn the right was cleared. A fine shot by R. C. Jones was briiliantly defected by Dan. Jones, who threw himself at the flying ball. The fvemors gained a further corner, as a result of which McNeil received and equaiised the score. Straight from tho restart the Reserves went off, H. Jones finishing up with a ahot which grazed the upright, immediately after which Dan. Jones cleared splendidly from McNeil. A oentre from the latter cannoned against R. Lewis, and thenoe found its way into the rigging- A shot from Brown found a resting place on the top of the net. Considering the state of the ground the game was an exoeJlently contested one, neither eide claiming much advantage. The Reserves gained another corner on the right, H. O. Jones heading over. Half-time: First Team 2, Reserves 1. TIIE SENIORS CONTINUALLY PRESS. Upon resuming play ruled even for a time, but eventually Hugh Williams put. on tho third goal for the Seniors with a low shot- The Swifts again attacked, and splendid play by Salisbury materialised, when he beat Collier with a magnificent shot. Still pressing, he gained a corner, which was well taken by Brown, en. abling NIoNeLl to score- "The shades of night were falling faot." when the end drew near, but before that happened Roland Williams, with a long shot, which quite deceived Collier, com- pleted the discomfiture of the Reserves. FiTùaJi; Holyhead1 Swifts 6 goals, Reserves 1 goal.

Penmaenmawr secured two penalties. Will- Jones, full back, played an extremely good game, and the two goalkeepers also played in a classy style. There are some promising recruits in the Llanfairfechan teajn. Mr Parry was referee.

ROOSTER CACKLE. When the homesters met Festiniog at Gwydr Park, on Saturday, they gave Whit- taker a chance to establish his reputation as a custodian. He brought off a number of very clever clearances, and was exceedingly active for a, man well over 6ft. 3in. in height. • » Gille/tt's tactics in embracing the ball too long were generally criticised. He placed his goal in danger more than once, by this practice. » 9 Owen Jones, the new player, introduced into the home team, is an acquisition to the alub, but it is doubtful whether the club can depend upon his services for long. ♦ The score undoubtedly represented the pla.y. The Quarry mem, however, showed great im- provement, both in combination and stamina, and will be able yet to give a lot of trouble to their opponents.
COLWYN BAY CLIPPINGS. The Leaguc match between Colwyn Bay and Carnarvon, on Saturday, was greatly marred by the rain, as the ground was quite unfit for pi ay. Under the circumstances, however, both teams fought hard, but the Canaries, who are a tough lot, were the better team. Walter Jones' first goal-was typical of the Carnarvon pivot. The manner in which he completed his breakaway could not but con- vince the home supporters that he was a dangerous man. Oh for a Tommy McCann to have hung on to his heels. » Their second was also a pretty goal., scored by R. H. Roberts from the extreme right, but it was generally acknowledged that the best goaJ of the match was Stanley's. Corning as it did just in time to put matters even at the interval, it was a popular one, and the shot, which was a swift "grounder" gave "G.H. the agile Carnar- von goalie, no possible chance. The Bayites were exceedingly weak in the front rank, and to make matters worse they played about and dribbled, instead of making straight for goaJ. The halves were good, whilst the backs were also fairly safe after the first twenty minutes or so. # » Between the posts, P. all wood did all that could be expected of him.
HOLYHEAD CHIPS. It was unfortunate tha.t the weather proved so unpropi.tiouH on Saturday, for had the ground been dry a good display would have been seen, though under the circumstances there was nothing to complain about. Collier and Dan Jones exhibited splendid form between the respective uprights, the la-tter's display promising even better things. "Doctor" played, as usual,, a sterling game, aaid put any amount of power behind his kicks. » I Carlisle was coolness personified, as was also Dick Ellis, both playing a splendid game. W. T. worked energetically (when doesn't he?), and repeatedly broke up the attacks of the opposing quintet. Owen Williams is very much on the small I side, but he displayed excellent footbaJI abili- I ties, and did any amount of good work. » » Warllace and R. C. form a good wing. and when they have played together once or twice 'I agaio it will be a formidable partnership. < Hugh Williams was not so prominent as usual, and is lacking in the art of distribut- I ing the play, being. inclined to individual- ism. » « Salisbury and McNeil were another happy pair, the goals which they seorcd being beau- ties. » # On the other side, Lewis gave a. vastly im- proved display, and is likely to continue in that vein. # » Taylor is ra.pidly returning to that form which made him a terror to opposing forces. The halves were a level trio, one and all doing their share capitally. Brown was splendid on the extreme right, putting in innumerable and perfectly judged centres. « His partner, Hugh Williams, is a very good lad, and is likely to make a mark. t"> » Louis wa,s not a success as pivot. His posi- tion is among- the halves, where he invariably shines. » H. O. Jones played brilliantly,, and his tussles with his "big brother," W. T., were most amusing, and the latter did not always most amusing, and the latter did not always come off "toOp dog." J. Jones has been seen to better advantage though he put in some pretty touches.
NORTH WALES COAST FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION. Mr John Hughes presided at a special meeting, held on Saturday, at Llandudno, Junction of the above Association, a protest was received from the Rhyl Grange against the result of their game with Denbigh Town on the ground that the latter had played two paid men another man who was living out of the prescribed area of twenty miles and also that the goal posts at one end were four inches short. Mr Hughes, secretary of the Rhyl Grange Club, gave an explanation, and as the Den- bigh had no representative present a special commission was appointed to inquire into the facts of the case at the Oueen's Hotel, Rhyl, on Wednesday evening next. Mr R. D. Richards, Bangor, who refereed in a match between Llandudno and Llan- rwst, complained that J. Lunt. one of the Llandudno backs, struck Richards, one of the Llanrwst forwards. Lunt admitted striking the man in a fit of temjxjr, and expressed his regret at the incident, saing that he had played for over sixteen years and had never been reported before. The Association suspended him fcr ten days, so that he would not be eligible to play next Sat- urday. The report of the Commiadon which sat at Chester to consider the advisability of changing the title of the Association by leaving1 the word Coast" out. was left in obeyance, pending further inquiries. Two semi-final matches for the Junior Cup will be played on January 29tb one at Bangor a.nd the venue of the other to be chosen by the eeePeJiary.

FRIENDLIES. MOLD TOWN v. DENBIGH, On Saturday, as both these teams were not engaged, a friendly was arranged at Moid. The game was played in a heavy snow storm, and ended in a win for Mold by two goals to one. Denbigh were short of T. A. Davies (captain), Hughie Evans and R. Thomas. The half-back line was, therefore, much weakened. Owing to the very bad state of the weather good foot- ball was out of the question. J. E. Hughes scored in the first half for Mold from a neat centre by Baugh, after Griffiths had headed against the crossbar. E. E. Davies equalised, and one of the home backs rushed the ball through in the last few minutes.
HUNTING. SIR W. WYNN'S HOUNDS. Sir Watkin Wynn's Hounds met at Shaving- ton on Saturday, when the field included Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Lord Powis, Lord Hxurlech, the Hon. H. Ormsby Gore, Lord Gera..1d Grosvenor, Mr and Mrs Hugh Peel, Mr Frank and Mr Gilbert Cotton (Penley Hall), Colonel R. Rivers Bulkelev, Mr Regi- nald and Miss Corbett (AddrrleyV Mr and Miss Dug'dale (Teirrick Hall), Major Berners, Mr John Jones (Mossfields), Mr and Mrs Kevill Davies (Edgley), Captain and Mrs Lam- bert (Melton Lodge), Mr and Mrs Grecnshields (MaJpas), Captain Ra.sbottom, Rev. the Hon. A. E. and Miss Parker (Maesfen). A surprisir^j good start was made in tie Shavington Big Wood, for as soon as hounds were put in they set afoot five foxes. Their attention was drawn to one which dashed into the WaU Plantation. He soon got away from there, and after running right round the plamtatiol1 was lost beyond Shavington. From Styohe big wood a fox ran back into Shavington, through the big wood, and away to Newstreet Lane Lodge. From there he pointed for Sandford. but before reaching there he turned left-handed over the road, and ran up to Styche Hall, where he was lost. Then from Clovelly big wood another fox w&s forced straight through Clovelly Gorse and in a direct line to Ightfield Church, and when hounds were going their hardest Reynard went to ground. Snow now fell heavily, and the Master drew hounds off.
FLINT AND DENBIGH HOUNDS. Hounds filled their appointment a.t Nannerch station on Saturday in bright weather, giving promise of great things, but the day turned cold and wet. Amongst the followers were Lieutenant- Colonel Williams-Wvnn (Master), Mrs Williams-Wynn, Lord Mostyn, the lion. Edward Mostyn, Mr Bihby, the Misses Bibby, Miss Howard, Mr Cecil Howard, Colonel Mesham, Mr bud- dingham, Mr Fosbery, Mr Charlt-on, Mr Davies-Cooke, Mr OG-nran, Mr Hughes, M. C. Williams, and others. The Nant yielded a fox that led the hunt a very nice gallop over the hill to Rosesymes where, doubling back, he went through Wern Wood and regained his sta.rting place. Here scent, which had been very catchy all day, failed entirely, and he was lost. A move was then made to Coed Du, but without result. A heavy fall of snow and sleet cut short the day and hounds went home.

HOCKEY. INTERNATIONAL TRIAL MATCH. EAST v. WEST. This international trial match was played at Llaji- dudno on Saturday. The ground was in a very bad condition owing to very heavy rain. When the game started West only had eight men and East ten. After a few minutes W. Pryee-Jones scored for the East. Soon after this the other four players turned up. This stopped the game, and the umpire decided that it should be restarted. Then, after some exciting play Dr. W. Davies scored the first goal for the East. He played a very fast game throughout the match. W. Pryce-Jonex scored a second gocl for the East, and the half-time score was two to none in their favour. In the second half E. Bone, a West pbycr, changed places with W. if. Owen. Bone then played a very fine g-ame. T. Phillips, after many brilliant rushes, which W. Warston cleverly stopped, at last managed to net the ball for the West. K Parry was the star of the half-back lines. W. Roberts, shortly before the whistle blew, scored for the West. This equalised, and the game ended in a draw of two goals each. The teams on Saturday were:- East: B. Savage (Newtown), goal W. Warston (Buckley) and E. M. Capper (Wrexham). baelis A. N. Powell (Newtown), G. Parry-Jone3 (Huthin), and F. J. Whitehcuse, captain (Wrexham), half backs A. Charles (Wrexham), W. Pryce-Jnnes (Old Colwyn), Dr. W. Davies (Old Oolwyn), J.

NORTH WALES CHESS ASSOCIATION. CHALLENGE CUP. The fired" round in this season's oompclition has resulted, as was thought probable, in victories for Ruabo-n, Rhyl, and Bangor; but these vic- tories were in all three cases much more deci- sive than had been expected even by tho most sangmno supporters of the winning clubs, Of the twenty-two gaTrc3 played the two most ill- torauUEg were theso ..t No- 4 board in the Ruabon v.

Jones, and others. ALMOST AT FULL STRENGTH. Capt. Jenkins, in the course of hlli address, said ho was pleased to state that the company were increasing in numbers. When they were converted into Territorials they numbered 80, last, year they increased to 114, and that day the?-; reached 119, which was only one short of the full strength of the company, namely, 120 (applause). He did not think tTiere would be much difficulty in getting the required single individual so that they could march into oamtp next year in full strength (applause). As regarded the muEketry training it was rather new to them last year, but he had no doubt that they would do much better next year when they beca,me more familiar with it (hear, hear)- The battalion shoot- although not as good as the previous ear, was satisfactory, and the camp on the w hoJe had been very enjoyable, notwithstanding the fact that some found Abergavenny rather a quiet place (laughter). Their battalion got one of the best reports ever given, and Je was proud to think that the Penmaenmawr Company had played an important part in getting such an excellent report (applause). The camp next year would be at Abcrystwyth from July 14-th to the 29th. In conclusion, Capt. Jenkine expressed his tnanks to his brother officers, Lieut. Darbkhire and Lieut. Oemlyn Jones, a.nd said that they all felt- highly indebtedj to Sergt,Instructor Oc-x for his valuable casietanoo. He wiehed all the members of the company the compliments of the season (applause). Col.-Ser-gt. Chantrey, on behalf of the com- pany, thanked Capt. Jenkins for his generous hofipifality. He also congratulated Col. Darbi- shire upon the fplondid import the lyatt-ali-on secured from General Lloyd. Three hearty cheers were then given for Capt. Jenkins, and the company broke into a spirited rendering of "For he's a jolly good fellow. OOL, DARBISHIRE AND GERMAN DREADNOUGHTS. Col. Darbishire, who was greeted with rounds of applaiwe, said that it was true that the General's report of the battalion was an excel- lent one, and the only way to maintain it was for every man to realise that le wa.s not, work- ing for himself aJone. but for the battalion as a whole (applause). In their battalion they had some of the beet and certainly s me of the best looking men (laughter)- In eai-pp they had their little tria'.ts and troubles. At the last camp there had been some misunderstanding about the water sujyply. with the, result tha-t some of the men had to wash themselves in riilk—(laughter) —but they could rely uiixin it that General Lloyd would see tha.t those things were better attended to in future (applause). In these days they heard a. lot about Dreadnoughts- Germany, it was paid, could turn out a Dreadnought in six months that was two a year, but the strange thing about these Dreadnoughts was that although they cost fro much they were out otf dIDte in five or six years, and yet. Germany went <n building them. What on earth they wanted theim for he did not know. Whenever the German officers were din- ing' alone the toast they drank was "The Day," I and thai was the day when ihev intended com- ing over to England. Why was England spend- ing five or six million- of money on a naval base near Edmburgh? They knew their busi- ) ness, and he thought if the Ka;ser came into the Pemnaemmawr Drill Hall that night he would hesitate before attacking' the Territorial Service (laughter and applause). In conclusion, lie thanked Capt. Jenkins for I what he had done for the F Company, and 5aid that, he felt proud to command such an excel- lent battalion (apniauae). A POPULAR CAPTAIN. Dr. J. R. Williams next proposed the toast of "The Visitors," and paid a high tribute to OaJpt, Jenkins, who. he said, was not only re- spected by the F Company, but by the whole battalion.' His re-election to the post of Mess- President afforded ample proof of Capt Jenkins' popularity (applause). Rev. Griffith Mathews, the new vicar of Pen- maenmawr, who was accorded a hearty recep- tion, in responding, said that this was the first occasion for him to a.ppear at a gathering of that kind, but he hoped it would not be the last (hear, hear)- He was a man of peace, and was convinced tha-t the bast way to secure peace was to be prepared for war (hear, hear). While he was in Briwtol he had a fine body of young men in the Church Lads Brigade, and lie was g'lad to find thart-, a. large number of those young men had now joined the Territorial Forces (hear, hoar), He congratulated the F Comply upon having such an excellent captain and com- mander (aipplause)- Capt. Jenkins next complimented Mrs Phillips upon the excellent manner in which she had catered for the dinner. THE PRIZE WINNERS.
