RHYL BOWLING CLUB. (Conlinuafion from Page 8.) was to be said about the letter. He felt that there could be no truth in it, or Mr Storey would not allow his name to be attached as presi- dent of the club (hear, hear). He was no prude b m .rl:, but he would be sorry to think that a club with the reputation of the Rhyl Bowling Club allowed gambling on the green.^ He hoped the secretary would take immediate steps to contradict what had appeared in the papers, and ho should ask the writer to give his name. Mr Gratton and Mr Gunner each seconded the Chairman's proposal. End it was decided to write to the papers contradicting the statements in the loiter reier'-eJ to, and asking for the name of the writer. This was carried unanimously. APPOINTMENT OF COMMITTEE. The follow;rig were then elected by ballot as members of In.o committee:—Messrs A. Lewis Jones, B. Massey, G. E. Gratton, W. Clarke, D. W. Pritchard, A. A. Gocdall, W. J. Simcock, Jas. Evans, E. E. Yaughan, and D. McLennan. THE COUNTY ASSOCIATION. Mr CL."L,y explained that a County Associa- tion had been formed, and a meeting was to be held to draft the rules.

Johnson with the "Wood" Cup, and Captain Wilders with the "St or" Cup. He also congratulated the club on their past record, and said he realised that they would require a great deal of beating, and that they were helping to make Rhyl better known aU over the country. In conclusion, Mr Eilis said he Weld bo pleased to present the club with a third ct™(applause). Mr Ells was thanked for his gift, and also for presenting the cups. ADVERTISING THE CLUB. Mr A.

CHESS. CHESS NOTES. (By a Correspondent.) The game appended at fcot-ome of no Jess than 22 oen.ga,ged in simultaneously by Mr G-tmsbe.rg, at Wrexham, in the course of his "recent Welsh tour—is, though short, high!y instructive, and shows clever play on the part of Mr Saint, the present North Walee captain. At the same time it must bo ad- iruttcd that the line of play followed by Mr 4 was scarcely one which should have Ivee-ai adopted against such a, strong opponent "without a fuller development of tlieattick iii forces. This he must have himself calif cd. when, after li,-s move, he was thrown eoin- pjetelv oin the defensive without breathing time in which to bring his reserves iinto play. The result of his tour generally seems to foiout to the cotDcl'usioai that the success of the single player in simultaneous displays de- pends on the number of his opponents rather than on their individual st-reaiigth. Th u,,i at 'o.wvn Bay and Rhyl, where he faced respec- tively eleven acid twelve opponents, Mtr Guns- barg won every game. At Bangor, meeting fourteen, he won 13 games a,nd loot one; while at Wrexham, against 22 players, his sooroe ,wa,s 16 wins, three losses and three drawn gamca. -Mo.-cover.thp players who won from or drew tprth h,ipn were iiot--with the solitary excep- tiorn of Mr Saint—by any means the best ex- ponents of chefs opposed to him, nioir indeed ivk-To those of the losers, who were the Last to succumb. The inferences to be drawn must be obvious to all chess players and lead naturaJJv to t-b-o question whether such displays are worth their cost. The answer to it is two-fold, As entertainments, "Ye* as being- of any educational value to the majority of those taking part in them, "No;" for in not one out of twenty of the games played on such occasions is the play on eithocT fJioo of the highest quality. For manifestly if one com- batant plays unsoundly there is little oppor- tunity for his opponent showing his best powers. Might it not be a good idea for our local clubs next season to arrange "correspond- tmoe" games with a leading player; stipula- ting that his own movoEB after the fi,rst four <>r five should in each case be accompanied toy a comment on the previous move of his opponent? A large board hung in the club Town would enable all the members to fodlow the progress of the gaane and think out for the in solves the best reply to ejuh move.

Hughes; Ormby, Huighcis, Lappin, HoLl, aind Hayee. Ii.cife.neic: Mr Dobson, Orewe. Oswestry won the toss, and put the visitors to face a glaring sumsct. Lappin kicked off, Rihyl immed-iateily pressed, and Ormby shot over. Oswestry retaliated through Mor- gan, who oentrod accurately from outside right, but WrUlkini>s kicked away strongly. A shot from Morgan pa&sed just on the wrong side of the post, and Derbyshire followed suit with a haet dJriva minut-e la-tetr. From the. goal kick Lappin made a good attempt to p-ctt,a,way, but he was wieil held by the home akiipper, who gave Morgan another chance. This player passed out to Gtreen, who whipped in a beautiful centre, but it was not tunned to advantage. Halrry Hughes put on the top of the licit, and Morgan oentr>einig woll from tho outside-r.i-giht position, enaiblod I>erbyaliice to score Oswestry's hret point afUi- fifteon minutes' play. Lappin a,gain ina.ugurated a pairtly sucoossiful attack on the homo goal, and Hayes caused Evans to handle for tho first time, which lie did very cflVctivoily, giving Griffitdis an op-ën run for goal. After runncng- about twenty-five ya.rds he was beatvin by I'a.rry, but soioai recoveixsd hianseilf, and SiC1:1t' across a. grand centre. Tlw- baiil, however, went out of play. A short adjournraeait was ntoefc-sa.ry to patch up the Rhyl goalkeeper, who ooiUidcd with one of trie hotme forwards. Hughes centred nioely across the goal, a--nd Dcirbyshiire, meeting tho baJi on the run.put on Oswestry's second goal. The third gwal caane a.bout five minutes irom haJf-time. Rhyl emteired the fiold in the second half by no means a beaUn teem, amd it was noticed that E. Hughes and Hayes had ex- changed "positions. Later, Hughes went in- side to Roll. The change seemed to work effectively for a time, and the home, forwards ware kept at bay for a&most the whoLe of the first tweinty minutes. Derbyshire registered Oswestry s fourth gokil. From the iifth cornea' kick forced by the homesters in this hailf Green scored tho fifth goad, and Gaifiiths put on the sixth five aniniutes later. Not- withstanding the revea-ses the Rhyl goalkeeper was aa formidiaMe as ever. T.'jtobai-ts shot in hard and fast, and the bald IxwiHced od tho goaJkeeper into play again. Green met the leibo.und and struck the* lowcr face of the crossbar with sueli force that the bail bounced fTOim the crossbar to the goal-line three times beforo Derbyshire appetuned on tlio soene aaid ,k)d-,d it safc-lv in the net for the seventii time.
LLYSFAEN v. COLWYN BA Y "OAKS" On Saturday a match was played on the Llys- facn ground tx:tvvcen Llysfaon F.C. and Colwyn Bay Oaks, Llysfaen were represented by the following :Vv m. Junes; D. J Thomas and J i arry; Wm. Williams, Llew. Jones, and Geo Mainwanrig; Tudor Hughes, J. R. Roberts, Geo. Watts, Win. Evans, and Joe Davics. Llysfaen won the toss, and decided to kick with the sun at their backs. The Oaks became ag- gressive but were quelled by the backs, who placed the ball well up the field, where it was secured by J. R. Roberts. After a pretty run down he passed to Watte, who put in a shot which left the goalkeeper no chanrc. I Llvsfaen agam pressed, and Chaplin handled the ball in side the penalty area, D. J. Thomas took the sbot, but t.ie Oaks' goalie saved beautifully. MaW-time arrived with the score at one goal to nil for Llysfaen. For tho rest of the same the play was fairly even, until at the last' moment W. Evans ran down and scored with a beautiful long shot, which placed the score at Llysfaen two goals, the Oaks nil. Next Saturday Llysfaen will play the Conway Amateurs on the Llvsfaen grounds.
COLWYN BAY v. LLANDUDNO CORINTHIANS. The Colwyn Bay Wednesdays formally opened their season on Wednesday, the visitors being the Llandudno Corinthians. Whenever thc.se teams meet keen rivalry exists, and in their en- counters last season tome good games were wit- ressed. The Corinthians vanquished the Bay- ites at Llandudno in the Duncan Cup by three goals to one, the League games being equal, each winning on their own enclosure by the same mar- gin. Roth teams on Wednesday had a number of new players in their ranks. Although only a friendly, the Bayites were favoured by a record gate, which denotes the benefit derived by se- curing the athletic ground from the Saturday club. The enclosure was in splendid condition, considering the amount of rain of the last few days. ithin a few minutes from the kick-off the Corinthians missed a splendid opportunity of scoring, their centre forward, with an open goal, putting over the cross-bar from a couple of yards' range. The homesters then settled crown, and were for a time in close proximity to the visitors' cus- todian, Wilkins eventually capturing the citadel The Ravites during the first half gave the visi- tors' defence no rest, and when the whistle blew were four goals to the good. From the restart the Corinthians' forward lino made a dangerous move, and Broese succeeded in scoring. Some god play was witnessed at times during the second half, the visitors missing one or two golden opportunities, and the homo custodian getting some teasers away. The home- sters werb more successful, and succeeded in add- ing another three goals, thereby winning by 7 goals to 1 goal. Next Wednesday the Bayites visit Llandudno, and open the League tourney with the Corinthians. Kick-ofT 2.45.
LLAND UDN0~BAKER' S FAILURE. BANKRUPTCY EXAMINATION YESTERDAY. Thomas Meredith, baker and grocer, Artro Villa, Trinity-street, Llandudno, was publicly examined at Bangor Bankruptcy Court to-day week. He returned his gross liabilities as JB527 16s 4d, the deficiency being JE159 Is 7d. He ascribed his insolvency to "bad debts." crivintr credit, loss on goods." <r' -0 The Official Receiver reported that the debtor, who was 53 years of age, had carried on business at the New Bakery for thirteen years and before that for about six years at Bodafon-road at Llan- dudno. He stated that he had no capital when he started in business, but B10 borrowed from an uncle, and since repaid, and £ 15 got from his wife, still said to be due. The debtor was the owner of the leasehold bakehouse, which he purchased in 1901 for JB490 and mortgaged then for £450. The sum now aue on the mortgage was scheduled at £485 9s lOd, the value of the property being estimated at £ ■ 00, leaving E95 9s lOd unsecured. There was no stock in the shop at the date of the reoeiving order. The wife had been tenant of Artro Villa for nine months, and the debtor before that time. The wife claimed all the furniture and effects there on the ground that she bought thorn from her own savings and earnings, tho earnings being for lodging-houss keeping. The debtor had kept no casihbook or proper books, and admitted knowledge of lll- solvency twelve months ago or a little more. Questioned by Mr Tobias, the debtor said that his wife made J6104 out of tho nouse last year, compared with J397 for tho previous year. The Assistant Official Receiver: How much a week did you allow your wife ?—Nothing in money. You are unique. You ought to be set on a pinn.acle by yourself. On tho application of Mr Tob:as, who remark- ed that the case was a most extraordinary one, the examination, was closed.

TERRORS OF BRONCHITIS. COMPLETELY BANISHED BY NOVEL REMEDY. How many people are there-n(A all of them old people—tied to their aiomes and afraid to take a. breath of fresh air outside lest tlie dinging dampness oi the atmosphere, or the penetrating oo.d br^ng aong anorJier attack ot tlieir old enemy, bronchitis. It n. the ever-present fear of 6uJfoc,¡¡,t,iv"-1! a> well as the racking cough and breathing difficulty ,n.&t terrorises anyone in a clironnc or advanced age of bronchitis. May'bel, with every change in tne weather the cough gets worse, and the n.ght isapfntt in sieepleins tossing, until the clobi.it-.y caused by t.høs03 sy-mptome brings the fear that :11-e. sufteror is er going to get any better. Jtiappily science has devised a mv avenue of tfsoape from this trouble. By the ingenuicy of mam, a spienidid breatlse-ablo remedy capable of reaching tho very seat of bronciiitis la6 at last been discovered. '111ltef:; fi ver-wrapjK-d Pops U-iblete, as they dissolvo 011 the tongue, give off certain medicinal fumes that descend, with the breath into the bronchial tubes auxi lung.i. Ail he client is practical!y btwihed in the famouc hettith-giving of tho pine forest—which accounts, for the accepted saying that Peps bring "A Pine Forest into Every Home." It is a mn-edy which, besides leaving far behind cough mixtures and cheap JexeTtges, has rendered •obsolete and urencoagaary the tini^oymiaivt of opium, nuirphia, and laudanum, so often found in rn-aiiy old-fashioned Illltd some modern oheet medecmes. Narcotic drugs only duress the heart aii-i u;wt -d- storaac«h, and clflrell aocumu- iate in a sediment at the bottom ot the cou,ch mixture bottle, thus providing a lajt. luauseoue and possibly fatal doeo for the unwary. Peps, hovvever, are guaranteed entirely free from opium, and all such harmful dnug- More- over. the ridh medicinal fumes which these) tab- lets eive off when dissolving on the tongue, pass into the throat and bionohi and oarry a. sooth- ing and healing influence through these deaoate channels right on to t.he furthest recesses of the lungs, where the germs of dis-c^asa may have found a hiding-place. Every inch of sore, .torn, and iiflanied tissue is reached by Peps; and the bronchitis, however severe or old-staadiing, is socm compelled to i its iron grip. The throat, which iinoeesaait. cotughimg has made sore, is quickly soothed by the Peps fumes; the tickl'inig phlegm is loosened and expelled without effort; irritation an4 inflammation in the wind- pipe and bronchi are re.ieved -and- aided; the racking cough is stopped, and tho che.-t pains dispelled. Even in cases where doctors have abandoned d hojx?. IVijKS have proved wond,r- fuil.v fcuccess.f'ol, cleanng the ihroat of ail phlegm and' makir.g the brcat^inig ijorfectly eiasy.

LMt evening a rehear- sal of the four act piece "Liberty Hall" (which Mr J: D. Asher and the members of the Rhyl Opei atie Society are producing at the Town Hall this evening) was given to a few friends. The piece, which is full of fine passages and clever situations, waa st&god in an admirable manner. The soenery was specially painted for the produc- tion, and everything was most effective. Tho rendering of the Christmas carols in particular was veiy good, the voices beautifully blending in the rendering of the always welcome refrains. The members of the society fulfilled their parts remarkably weli. Miss Beatrice Haughton sus- tains the leading character in an able manner end is perfectly natural even in the most trvinu situations. M Florence Parry also takes v the part of the younger sister with pleasing style as the fussy rnaidt n iady Miss Louie Kirk was very- good, and Miss Elsie Hood as the servant 01 housekeeper, acted her part most cleverly. Mr J. D. Asher leads the gentleman and a difficult part finds ar. able exponent To Mr Bert Jones has been entrusted the part of the oid uncle, per- haps the most trying of the piece, and we have never seen Mr Jonev take any part as ably as he does this one' it suits him in every way, and he appears to have :i"cd the character. Mr W. S. Roberts also makes an ideal successful loud voiced tradesman, yet does net overdo any por- tion. As a lawyer Mr Ebby Hughes makes his appearance on the stage, and hits the happy medium. Another young actor is Mr Geo. Wil- liams, who as the "son ot a lord" carries through his love making very nicely. Although he Jias not much to do, Mr Hollman does it well, and Master Sterling Lewis a-s the shopboy weli main tains that character's inquisitiveness. Mr Stan- lev Bell also well fills the part of the servant.
WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE MEETING AT RHYL At the Rhy! Tawn Hni] on Tuesday evening there was a large gathering in connection with the Women's Social and Political Union. It had been axrangl-d for Lady Coi^stanee Lytton to kive her experiences as Jane Warton in Walton Gaol, but in her unavoidable absencc Miss Sclina Mar- tin filled her place. The chair was takr n by Miss Flatman, the or- ganising secretary for the Liverpot 1 district, who said Ehc. was pleased to see such a large audience ready to hear their side of the question of Votes 'lor Women. It was not by any means a new movement, as it had been in existence for some 50 years, and they were determined that the right to vote should not be put off any longer. They as women claimed the Yet,, as a right—they paid for it, and they meant to have it. They wanted a vote in order to return to Parliament a man who would represent the women's views. It was not a sex question, and they did nIt desire to do away with the importance or the influence of man. Ail they dcs.red was to stand by a man's side and to have the vote on the same terms as he had it, She claimed that if twenty women wanted the vote, and it was right and just for them to havie it. then they should get it. The women had made up their minds to get the vole, and it would be theirs eventually. She pro- posed a on in favour of the Women's l'ranchiso Bili now before Parliament. Mr I'ethick Lawrence, editor of "Votes for Women," seconded it, and said that step by step the won;011 of the country were getting into line and were saying that they would do no more political woik unless they had ihe vote on the same terms as the men The women wanted to deal with the great sweating evils of the day. and tie instanced the conditions of women teach- ers ::s an example, of the evils they wished to remedy. If wc-men were given votes they would alter that tak of tilings. The women did not mean to be put of! any longer, and in the face of the dishonesty of political parties they had ceased to be nice, gentle, and kinft because in order to get something one had to be disagreeable. That was why they adopted militant- tactics. The res?lutior. was put to the meeting, and car- ried with applause A collection on behalf of the funds was then made, and Miss Flatman noticed that some of the gentlemen leit the 10011: while this was going on. She askeci tie-m to support the cause, and that even statesmen expected to be paid for t-htir beïy¡œs.

She contended that if Tariff Reform was adoptedi, wages would not. go up. but food would rite and thoee who would suffer most would be the woom and cli-ildim. Mr Frank Jones, of the Free Trade League, also epoke, and contended that those who de- clared that the conditions of the working classes w-ere better in Germany than in 'England were very wide of the mark. In Germany all the necessaries of liiie wore dearer, and workmen had longer hours and less wages than mi England.
