gmpirtat ffarttamewt FRIDAY. In the Lords, replying to a question put by Lord Ham- mond and Earl Granville, Lord Derby said the Russians had given Her Mijesty's Government no assurance that they would not enter Constantinople beyond that which was already in their lordship's hands, and which was of a rather general character. Under the circumstances it had been deemed expedient to send a portion of the fleet to the Dardanelles. Layard had frequently stated that the gravest danger to British subjects was involved in a Russian advance en Constantinople, and thither the fleet had been ordered to protect British life and property. In taking this step Government did not contemplate a departure from their policy of neutrality. Earl Granville condemned the step taken by the Ministry. Earl Derby, in reply to other questions,said the permission of the Porte had not been asked in reference to this latest step, because the permission already given to the advance of the fleet had not yet been revoked. In the Commons, the Chancellor of the Exchequer gave details of the terms of the armistice between Russia and Turkey, as briefly telegraphed by Mr Layard, are ten articles contained in the armistice, and the most im- portant is Article 3. It refers to a line of demarcation and a neutral zone for Russia, Turkey, and Servia, most of Bulgaria, Roumelia, and Thrace, as far as the lines of Constantinople and Gallipoli, to be in Russian hands." H No fortifications are to be kept in the neutral territory or new ones constructed," which means the en- tire dismantling of existing fortifications. A joint com- mission is to determine the line of demarcation for Mon- tenegro and Servia, and the Russians to occupy Bourgas and Nidia on the Black Sea for the purpose of obtaining supplies, but not war material. Beyond the lines of demarcation the armies are to withdraw within three days of the signature of the armistiCQ By Article 6 Russia undertakes to superintend the navigation of the Danube, and by Article 7 permits the Turkish authorities to remian in certain places not mentioned. Articles 9 and 10 refer to the raising of the Black Sea blockade and the care of the Turkish wounded. These conditions Sir Stafford Northcote showed that the Russians, although they had not actually occupied any portion of the Turkish lines yet, had brought the territory they are to occupy close up to them, and this was entirely consistent with the statement of the Russian advance communicated by Mr Layard. These facts disclosed a state of affairs that necessarily must engage the serious attention of Her Majesty's Government, and they had thought it right to order a portion of the fleet l to proceed at once to Constantinople for the purpose of protecting the lives and property of British subjects. In the discussion which followed the statement of the right hon. gentleman, and in which Mr Gladstone and Mr Bright took part, there appeared to be a general consen- sus of opinion that the Government had taken a right step at a periloms moment. The debate on the supple- mentary estimate was resumed in committee of supply, and on a division there voted for the motion 328, and against 124. This gives the Government a majority of 204. The actual Conservative majority in the house is 58, so that many Liberals voted on the side of the Minis- try. The announcement of the result of the voting was hailed with ringing cheers. MONDAY. In the Lords, Lord Derby, replying to a question on the subject, admitted the correctness of the report that the Porte had refused to permit the British fleet to pass through the Dardanelles, but he was confident that the difficulty which had been raised would be surmounted. Lord Beaconsfield said that the Government had no reason to believe in the authenticity of the statement that Russian marines were on their way to the Sea of Marmora, to take possession of war ships conceded to Russia by Turkey. In the Commons, replying to Mr Forster, the Chan- cellor of the Exchequer said there had been some delay in the fleet going up to Constantinople, but he was not able at present with convenience to enter into the sub- ject generally communications were going on. There was no change, however, in the intentions of Her Majesty's Government. This announcement was re- ceived with cheering. A short but not unimportant de- bate arose on the report of the committee of supply with reference to the vote of .£6,000,000. Mr Cowen replied to some remarks of Mr Gladstone on Friday referrinf to him, and said that his contention was that when national interests were at stake all party differences should be slink. He considered that the Turkish Goverament was superior to any that could be substituted for it. Mr Riithbone deprecated the exhibition of distrust of foreign Powers. Mr Parnell spoke of the wrongs of Ireland," which far excelled those suffered by the Bulgarians from the Turks. Mr Anderson and Mr E. J. Reed having made a few remarks, Mr Gladstone observed that the responsibility of the House was now at an end, and that it would net beseem their dignity to worry the Govern- ment when engaged in transactions of an anxious and a difficult kind. He hoped, therefore, that he might re- gard the question as at an end. Adverting to Mr Cowen's explanation, taking the speech tho hon. member had made as the meaiure of his opinion, he did not see that there wai much difference in principle between them; for he quite agreed that party should give way to patriotism. The discussion was continued by Mr Waddy, Mr Macdonald, Mr Storer, Mr T. Braesey, Dr. Ward, and Mr Hubbard, aad closed with the adoption of the report nem con. Subsequently, in Committee of Ways and Means the Chancellor of tho -Exchequer moved resolutions for raising the six millions by the issue of Exchequer Bonds and Exchequer Bills, repayable at par inja period of not more than threejyears. In reply to Sir G. Campbell, the right hon. gentleman said that be should not think of proposing to make a permanent ad- dition to the Debt, and as we were within six weeks of the end of the financial year it would be impossible to put on new taxes that would be worth anything. The arrangement would, therefore, be a temporary one and when he brought forward his financial statement for the year 1878-79, he would explain how he would provide for it. The resolutions were then agreed to, amid cheers and without discussion. Mr Cross having moved the second reading of the Factories and Workshops Bill, Mr Tennant submitted, as an amendment, that in any measure for the consolidation and amendment of the law relating to factories and workshops, it was desirable, in the interests alike of employers and employed, that all trades and manufactures employing the same class of labour should be placed upon the same footing and under the same protec- tive and"restrictive regnlations. A conversation of a dis- cursive character followed, in the COIUse of which a general approval was expressed of the Bill, though several suggestions, with a view te the improvement of its details, were made by Sir C. Forster, Mr Knowles, Mr Mundella (who pronounced the measure a most valuable one). Mr Fielden, Mr J. Barclay (who recommended the insertion of a clause requiring boys selling newspapers in the Streets to be provided with a certificate of school at- tendance), Mr Hibbert (who was of opinion that there should be one law for every trade in the country), Sir H. Jackson, and Mr Shaw (who was the only dissentient in the chorus of approbation, and feared that the Bill might operate injuriously on the smaller trades of Ireland). Mr Cross promised to consider the suggestions made, but declined to accept the amendment of Mr Tennant, which was then withdrawn, and the Bill read a second time. The Parliamentary Registration Bill and the Borough Voters Bill were also read a second time and referred to the Select Committee on the Parlia- mentary and Municipal Registration Bill. TUESDAY. In the Lords, replying to questions, Lord Derby said he hoped to be able to announce when the House again met that the English fleet was either at or near Con- stantinople. His lordship added that he had no addi- tional news to that in Prince Gortscbakoff's despatch, which had gone the round of the papers, as to Russian occupation of Constantinople. A Ministerial bill to amend the law relating to the cattle plague and the im- portation of live sto:k was read a first time. In the Commons, the Liverpool Improvement Bill was read a second time, and ordered to be referred to a select committee. The motion for the second reading of the Manchester Corporation Water Bill was opposed by Mr S. Howard, who moved the rejection of the measure, arguing that the scheme involved the total destruction of the natnral beauties of Thirlmere, and that it was not needed for sanitary purposes, but was merely a gigantic trading proposal, intended to benefit the revenues of Manchester. Ultimately the amendment was withdrawn, aad the bill read a second time and referred to a select committee. Replying to Major Nolan, Mr W. H. Smith said the orders sent to Admiral Hornby were of a clear and distinct character, and had been sent on the responsibility of the Government, but he declined te state their natare. Mr Fawcett gave notice of a motion io- structing the lommitt-ee on the Factories and Workshops Bill to insert provisions for bringing children employed in agriculture within the operation of the act. Subse- quently, Mr Leatham called attention to the traffic in Church livings, and moved a resolution declaring the desirability of adopting measures for preventing simonia- cal evasion of the law. The subject was under discus- sion when the house was counted out. WEDNESDAY. In the Commons, yesterday, the Voters, (Ireland) Bil was rejected on the motion for the second reading. The discuesion on the order for the second reading of the Valuation Bill was prolonged until, in accordance with rule, it became a dropped order. Leave was given for the introduction of a large number of bills. THURSDAY. In the Lords, the Earl of Derby announced the passage of the fleet through the Dardanelles. The House after- wards proceeded to the consideration of a bill, introduced by the Lord Chancellor, to define more clearly the juris- diction of the Crown over territorial waters. The bill, which had been framed chiefly to dispose of such a difficulty of jurisdiction as was raised in the case of the collision between the Franconia and Strathclyde, was read a first time. In the Commons, the Chancellor of the Exchequer made a statement (referred to in another column) on the l entry of the fleet to the Sia of Marmara. A debate arose on the motion for the second reading of the Consolidated Fund Bill, re-openiug to some I extent the question of the policy of the Government in the Eastern question. The bill was read a second time without a division. Mr Sclater-Bootb moved the aocond reading of the County Government Bill. An amendment was moved by Mr Stansfeld declaring that with a view to simplifying and strengthening local self-government, it is desirable, with as little delay as possible, to bring each sanitary district and poor-law union within the area of our county, and to give to the ratepayers in and of such districts the power of directly electing members to the county boards exceeding in number the representatives ef the justices. Discussion followed, in the courae of which Mr Rathbone deliver an important speech. The debate was adjourned.
THE ALTERATIONS TO THE WREXHAM MILITIA BARRACKS. TO THE EDITOR OF TBS GTIALTJMAN. SIR,—Allow me to endorse the remarks made by Fairplay" in your last week's issue, relative to the way in which the County Magistrates have let the above work. As he points out it is not only unfair to the rate- payers for public works to be let privately, but a great injustice to Wrexham builders, and I hesitate not to state that had the work been let in an open competition Wrexham builders would not only have held their own but there would have been a considerable saving to the County funds to which they contribute, for in a job similar to the above there is not a single builder in Wrexham who does not possess greater facilities for doing the wotk than Mr Griffiths, of Cefn, who rarely or ever appears on the scene when work is offered to public competition. Still he gets the county work, I suppose, at his own price,—I am, yours truly, A WREXHAM BUILDBR.
THE ABERYSTWITH COLLEGE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. Sir,—The Editor of the Wrexham Advertiser, in it issue of the 2nd inst., was kind enough to analyze the feelings of those who attended the presentatien te the patriotic Mr Brereton. As he happened to misrepresent my feelings, I thought fit to write to him en the subject. But my letter did not appear in the last number of his paper, and as I do not like to be placed in "false position on a national question, I beg to request you to insert my letter in the Guatdian.—Your obedient servant, T. MORGAN OWBN. TO THE EDITOR Off THE WREXHAM ADVERTISER. Sir,—In an editorial paragraph on the subject of the testimonial to Mr Brereton you were good enough to remark. —"No better proof could be adduced of the hold which the University College has laid on the minds of the people of Wales than the gathering of Monday evening. The many gentlemen whe were present were there not only to show their respect to a kind and true-hearted Welsh literateur but also their attachment to what has now become a national institutioh. Permit me to observe that I did not attend that pre- sentation from an attachment to what has now become a national institution," but simply as an Ovate to do honour to a Bard, and through him to our National Institution—the Eisteddfod. My views on the educational machinery that Wales should possess were expressed in an address that ap- peared in the Wrexham Guardian of 13th October, 1877, and which was commented upon in a leader which appeared in the Liverpool Courier of 17th October, 1877.

ME WATKIN WILLIAMS, M.P., AND HIS „ PROMISES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. SIR,—As one of the electors of the Denbigh Boroughs, I think it my dut y (not because it ia mine more than that of any other elector) to call attention, through your columns, to the action of our borough member at this very important crisis. In Mr Watkin Williams's speech, in the House of Commons on Thursday last, he said," There is not a member of the House of Commons more thoroughly opposed than I am to the policy of her Majesty's Government in connection with Eastern affairs. That sentence, I can only imagine, was uttered to conciliate a small section of his consti- tuents the hon. member then, to be on the popular eide of the House, went on to eay that, In the presence of the stupendous events now passing in the East of Europe—events of which the least that could be said was, that they were mysterious and uncertain—it was melancholy to find the House and the country divided upon a miserable question of six millions of money. Any reasonable and honour- able way out of the dilemma in which they were placed ought to be accepted by the whole House at once in the interest of the country at large, and altogether irrespective of party considerations, and, for his own part, he was delighted to kear the Chancellor of the Exchequer resent the notion that they should postpone the vote. He thought their duty was clear—namely, to proceed with the vote in committee and bring the affair to a speedy and definite conclusion." Anybody with common ordinary sense would have expected that after this portion of his apoech Mr W. Williams would have been found voting amongst the majority, and in favour of the Govern- ment on the Vote for .£6,000,000. But, alas it wa« only uttered on the spur of the moment, and, was like his promises to support the resolution of the Home Rule Members and his conduct on the Per- missive Bill, for when the time for his promises to be acted upon came he was not found in hie place to voteinaupportof or against them. ThuIII, the Denbigh Boroughs were not represented upon these questions. What is the use of such a member ? If any party in the Borough is to be represented, or, as the hon. member always professes to represent all parties, how is it he has not voted on vital questions affect- ing the interests of the country ? Let me here eall your attention to the words of Mr Watkin Williams, who said (in alluding to the vote for 000,000) that it was a miserable question of six millions of money." If these were hit views why did he not appear and substantiate them, by voting with the Government to obtain that grant. It is not often, I am thankful to say, that such & critjie, as at present exists, affocts our happy and industrious country, but in the future I hope it will prove a warning to all electors to consider well their votes, and the objects which candidates have in view when seeking our suffrages; amd not to be led away by men who, to gain our votes, soek them through promising to support some senti- mental idea, and when a, national question arise* sacrifice their country for the sake of pleasing a very small but noisy section of their constituents. I have never taken a very active interest in politics, but the time has come when all thinking men must if they do not wisk to see our net Interexte sacrificed, take a more active interest in the repre- sentation of the country, by assisting in returning men to Parliament who have a real stake and in- terest in thein country, and whose promises can be relied upon to support and maintain our vast em- pire as it at present exists, which has been crea.ted by Britieh pluck, enterprise, and industry, and has been the source of our prosperity and greatness.

SMITH'S (POOK KIN) CBARITT.—An appeal was on Monday heard in the Court of Appeal for a reconsidera- tion of a decision of the Master of the re*pecti*g the distribution of a fand known as '^Smith's (Poor Kin) Charity," left nnder a will made by Henry Smith, a citizen and alderman of London in 1627, and for admini- stering which a fresh scheme is being nettled. The property left has rieen in value from £130 to J611,000 a year, with a further prospect of increase. The Master of the Rolls treated the bequet.1 a perpetual charge ef jtoO a year only to the poor kindred, and decided that the surplus was applicable to general charitable purposes. The Lords Justices decided that on the qnestion of con- struction the poor kindred were entitled te the whole in- come of the atoietv of the property, and not merely j660 a year dutributable among them under the ordor of the Master pf the Rolli. TM MINERS AND THBIR Does.—The strike in the coal trade has proved a sore perplexity to some of the miners who possess degs, and who have been anable as yet to purchase the necessary licenses; and last week a meet- ing of this elass was held at Bedlington, when it was determined to send a deputation to the Kev Canen Whitley. to ask his opinion as to whether an extension of time for the payment of the dog licenses could be granted or not. The werthy magistrate is reported to have expressed himself unable to answer the query, and to have referred the deputation to the revenue officer at Blyth, whither they accordingly went, bat oaly to be informed by that officer that they must either purchase the necessary licenses or part with their pets.—Newcastle Daily Journal. BANQUET TO MB STANLEY.—On Saturday evening, Mr H. M. Stanley was entertained at a banquet by the Royal Geographical Society at Willis's Rooms, London, Sir (Rutherford Alcock, the president, in the chair. In proposing the health of the guest of the evening. Sir Rutherford spoke of him as a geographical explorer who had had the courage, the endurance, the tact, and the energy to prosecute his way across Africa and lay open the vast sources of the Congo, an enterprise as perilous and as difficult as any man ever undertook, and one that has been, and will still more be, fruitful in its results for the benefit of the whole world. Mr Stanley, in expres- sing his warm acknowledgment" explained at some length the circumstances which had led to his taking strong measures occasionally, more especially at Bom- bireb, and he maintained that what was dene was to satisfy justice. He also showed the reason why )he English flag had been carried by the expedition^

WHITCHURCH.—The return match between these clubs was played on the ground of the former, on Saturday, resulting in a drawn game, no goals being obtained. LIVERPOOL V. MANCHESTER.—The return match between these clubs wa. played on the Liverpool ground, Edgehill, on Saturday afternoon. The game ended—one goal and two tries for Manchester (the last disputed), against one goal for Liverpool. BANGOR V. BEAUMARIS GRAMMAR SCHOOL.—An eleven of the Bangor Club played fifteen of the Beaumaris Grammar School Club at Beaumaris on Saturday after- noon. That the home club, made up chiefly of youngsters, played well, may be inferred from the fact that when time was called, the Bangor team, who have done good work against some crack North Wales repre- sentatives, had scored only three goals to nothing. Mr Geary captained the home team, the Bangor eleven being E. Rathborne (goal), J. Jones (captain), J. T. Williams, R. Williams, R. Mulpeters, R. C. Rathborne, R. Wil- liams. H. Lewis, Richard Williams, J. Smith, and Dr Jones. LLANGOLLEN 11 CORWEN.—The return match between the first elevens of these clubs was playei at Llangollen on Saturday last, and resulted in an easy victory for the home team by eight goals (three disputed) to none. The game was rather one-sided from beginning to end, the ball being in the vicinity of the Corwen goal nearly the whole time. The Llangollen team were H. Adams (goal), S. Jones and LI. Smith (backs), B. G. Smith, captain, and J. Jones (half-backs), E. Jone. and E Edwards (centres), W. Roberts and J. Jones (left wing), T. Roberts and F. Jones fright wing). GROSVENOR V LLOFTWEN.—The return match was played on Saturday last, on the ground of the former, Rhosddu, and resulted in a victory for the Grosvenor, by four goals te nothing. The captain of the Lloft-wen team won the toss and choose to play down hill. The ball was sent rolling by one of the Grosvenor backs and in less than fire minutes a goal was secured. It was new plainly seen that the match would be an easy victory for the Grosvenor, for very soon after the ball was kicked off it was quickly taken down again and a second goal was obtained. The ball being again set in play the Grosvenor team, who played a neat passing game, soon got possession of it and another goal secured. The visitors now began to play very loose, not even taking the ball half-way down the ground before they would loose it, and after some gooi play in front of their goal the ball was again put through. Being again kicked off the ball burst after thirty minutes play. A new bsll was soon brought on the ground but the visitors declined to play any longer. Tho following were the Grosvenor team:— R. H. Parry (goal), T, Jones and G. Thomas (backs), W- Price and J. Pickering (half-backs), H. Griffiths and J. GTaut (left wing), F. H. Jones, captain, and J. Lea (right wing), E. Hopkins and F. Edwards (centres). CIVIL SERVICE (2nd Team) v WREXHAM (2nd Team).— A match was played between the above teams on the ground of the latter on Saturday last. After some goed passing on both sides resulted in a victory for the Service by three goals to one :— Civil Service.—J. Roberts capt., (goal), W. Kenny and J. Holt (backs), J. Ingham and W. Hughes (half-backs), A. Davies and A. Poole (right wing), T. Griceand J. Jones (left wing), J. Rowland and J. Rogers (centres). Wrexham.—C. Potter (goal), T. Wollam and J. Leigh (backs), E. Lafon capt., and W. Riehards (half-b*cks), T. Boden and T. Monether (right wing), A. Davies andF. Owe. (left wing), B. Ingham and W. Davies (centres). RUTHIN (2nd Eleven) v GRAMMAR SCHOOL (1st Eleven). A return match, under association rules, was played be- tween these clubs last Saturday on the school ground. The weather was mot enjoyable for out-door games, and the ground in pretty good coudition. Play began at 2.30 and lasted an hour and a half. Jenkins kicked off for the school. The town eleven had considerably the better of the game and one goal was obtained by them in the first half. After the change of ends, the school boys showed to better advantage, but although they .strove hard to bring the score level, they were unable to do so. As this is the return match, it will be known that the last game was won by the town eleven by four goals to none and one disputed. The following were the players :— Town Eleven.—H. Parry (ffoal;, T. Humphreys and W. A. Lloyd (backs), T. Wateon and J. Humphreys (half-backs), J. N. Hughes and W. Eoberts (left wing), 8. Williams and U. Goodwin capt., (centres), C. Douglas and W. Boherte (right wing). P. Mostyn umpire. Grammar School.—J. Simon (goal), Wynne and W. Simon (backs), Jones and W. Simon (half-backs), B. Simon and W. Lloyd (left wing), J. Jenkins capt., and W, Owen (centres), J. H. Simon and E. Owen (right wing). SHEFFIELD v. GLASGOW. —This match was played at Bramall-lane, Sheffield, on Saturday, and excited con- siderable interest; consequently there was a very large attendance, and the weather was beAutifully fine, the only drawback being the greasy nature of the ground from the action of the sun on the frozen surface. The Sheffielders struggled in vain, and were ultimately defeated by four goals to two. The teams were :— Glasgow.—P". Campbell, H. M'Neill, T. J. Britten, A. Kennedy, J. Wallace, J. Phillips, W. S. Charleton, D. Davidson, A. Hunter, W. M'Kinnon, and J. B. Weir. Sheffield.—IS* Buttery, J. C. Clegg, W. E. Clegg, J. Tomlin- fon, R. Gregory, J. Housely, W. Mosforth, A. W. Curtham, T. Lawson, T. H. Sorby, a.nd G. B. Marpels. NOTTINGHAMSHIRE V. MANCHESTER ASSOCIATION. This match came off at Manchester, on Saturday lasn The kick-off took place at 3 50, Manchester at once pressing their opponents. This, however, was sooa changed by Notts, and H. Cursham planted the bill between the Manchester posts within a few minutes after the game had commenced. Manchester had t" act on the defensive after the kick-off, but Mason (Cambridge University) and Potter behind playing in rare form frustrated all attempts on the part of Notts for a time. Manchester now had a corner kick, when Barnet (Royal Engineers) all but scored. Two corner kicks then fell to Nottingham, but nothing resulted. H. Carsham, with some splendid dribbling, brought the bull up to the Manchester goal, when hiu brother scored Xott's second goal. After change of ends, H. Carsham was again busy, though Potter played too safe a back for his efforts. Manchester registered a second corner kick, and again Barnet only jut missed pussing the ball under the tape. Directly afterwards almost, corner kick number three was called for Manchester, and Barnet and Pitcairn almost rushed the ball through, but the goal post intervened, and the ball bounded back into play. Another corner kick for Manchester, and the Notting- ham team roused up in earnest, H. Greenhalgh getting a third goal for his team out of a loose scrimmage. Again and again Manchester threatened the Notting- ham goal, the play of Schofield, Railton, and Barnet being specially good at this time. A free kick for Manchester in the very mouth of their opponnet8* goal gave the home team a chance which they made good use of, Schofield rushing the ball through. After the kick-off in the few minutes left for play, R. J. Geenhalgh scored the fourth goal for Notts, and the home team not having managed to in- crease their score lost the match by four goals to one Individually Manchester played splendidly, Barne' Smith Mason, and Schofield being especially good; collectively the play was bad in the extreme, several times three or four of the team playing on the ball alto- gether and defeating themselves by charging one another, and each trying to accomplish the wishes of his supporters by himself. Notts played a splendid passing gllme, whilst H. Cursham seemed almost perfection in his in- dividual play, nothing and nobody seemed to interfere with his progress across country. Where the passing game exists as it should do. and in all its entirety. individual play is good as it contributes efficiently to the passing, therefore with the exception of the player just mentioned, the Notts team cannot be in- dividualised as regards its play. The following composed the respective teams: Nottinghamshire— H. Greenhalgh, goal; H. J. Jessop, back; E. H. Greenhalgh (captain) and A. T. Dobson. half- backs: H. Butler, C. L. Cursham, H. A. Cursham, R. J. Greenhalgh, T. Â. Oliver, G. Reckless, and G. Seals, for- wards; umpire, Mr S. H. Keely. Nancheder-W. D. Pitcairn, goal; A. B. Potter and G. A. H. Jones, backs; G. Mason and C. JB. Mayne, half-backs S. G. Smith (captain), H. H. Barnet, H. C. Fletcher, T. E. ¡ ephson, J. A. Railton, and J. W. Schofield, forwards umpire, Mr A. Mason, lieferee, Mr G. Maeon.
THE WELSH CHALLENGE CUP. FORESTERS T. WREXHAM. The above clubs being drawn in the third ties for the Challenge Cup, the game was played on Satardav, on the Foresters' ground, Gwersyllt Park. The Foresters, although a young club, this being their first season, had run into the third ties, a performance not to be despised, and no doubt exceeds the expectations of many of their friends. The weather was favourable for play, but the ground rather slippery. There were about 500 specta- tors present, a charge of sixpence being made for ad- mission, and the greatest excitement and good feeling existed throughout. The ground was very small—110 yards by M, the minimum distances required by the rules being 100 yards by 60. Gwersyllt won the toss, and selected the top goal, tha ball being set in motion at 3.14. The game for the first ten minutes seemed pretty even, and the ball was continually out of boundary, the Wrexham team in their long passing wanting more room. How. ———————! •ror, they soon settled down, and were the first to score from a shot by J. Davies at 8.38, J. Price having previously put the kail through, but it was declared "off-side." From thwpoiat it was seen that the Foresters were greatly overiuaten4 their back play being very weak. When half time was cllwd. Wrexham had scored throe goals and one disputed. The plav, after the change of sides, was still more one-sided, Lovatt having a warm time of it; and although he defended his goal with great credit, oould not help himself when the Wrexhamites were around hilll like bees. At the call of time the game stood-Wrexhain, eight goals, and one disputed, to none. The following were the players:- F&resters.-Itemars Lovatt (goal) R. Williams and W. Tndor (backs), G. Whitehouse, C. Roberts, and H Clavton cant (half-backs), S.Powell and W. B. Marston ("right winer) V" kcHutchonand K. Dodd (left wing), E (cfnttS.* Umpire, Sir Owen Price. Wrexham.—Meesrii E. Phsnnah (goal), C. Mnrless, eaptain., ?f Evans, E. A. Cross, and a! Daviei (half-kMks), J. Danes and C. Edwards (right wina), TSAS. 5ii £ WH*M WINS)'J- PRKE The Foresters' backs were very weak, and one or two changes ought to be made at once. The forwards, al- though they were short of S. Williams, a good man, and McHutchon was hurt early in the game, made a good fight. The result of the game will tell its own tale about the Wrexham team, notwithstanding the ground was un- favourable to their play. DRUIDS v. WHITE STAR (NEWTON). The above clubs met at Newtown on Saturday, 9th inst, to decide third ties for the challenge cup, (the first game at Plasmodoc having resulted in a draw). A large number of spectators were present. The ball was kicked off at 2.29 by Mr L. L. Kenrick for the visitors, and was kept in the home team's territory for about twenty min- utes, during which time it had not crossed the Druids line, when a foul was made against the Stars but an appeal to referee was disallowed, immediately afterwards on the ball being near the visitors goal, hands was claimed by the home team and at once granted by the referee, which resulted in the leather being hustled through, the Druids goal-keeper failing to free his posts. Nothing further occurred until half-time, during this part of the game disputes were raised by the home team on any pretext, and the crowd inciting them to attack their opponents -rather than plav the ball, also making use of unseemly expressions unfit for publication. The ball was kept in the home team's grouud but the Druids" could not lower their opponents fortress until about a quarter of an hour before call of time, when a goal was kicked by Ketlev, the Stars goal-keeper being over the line" when stopped by him, he however carried the ball five or six yards clear of the goal posts, but referee although ap- pealed to, would neither give it a goal or a free kick and a protest was lodged by the Druids," which will be de- cided by the committee on Thursday next. The game therefore resulted in another draw, although there can be no comparison between the teams, as the Druids should have won by several goals. The latter refuse to again play at Newtown whether their protest is sustained or not, but are agreeable to meet them in neutral ground, either Oswestry or Wrexham, and it will be interesting to note result. Although clubs cannot be held responsible for the behaviour of crowds, still they are bound to see that they do not molest the players or interfere with the game. The spectators were however continually six or seven yards over touch,;and often made it a point whea- the ball was near the White Star goal to get between the player and the ball and the umpire at once gave it as being out and a throw in was granted by the referee against the Druids." The Druids" were deprived of the services of one of the best forwards (Mr G. F. Thomson), who was on the ground but unable to play. Mr Kenrick was also hors de combat, but was persuaded to take his usual post, and rendered efficient service al- though he had often only one leg to stand upon. The committee have decided that the match was not won by White Star and they are to meet again at Oswestry, on the 23rd inst., association chosing referee and umpires.
