COLWYN BAY OAKS v. LITTLE ORME. This match was played on the latter's ground in ideal football weather. The "visitors commenced to work their way towards the quarry goal pc-r Davics, Waburton and Chaplin, but were driven back by the right iba.ck, who cleared with a huge punt. End to end play followed, each eid-c striving hard to score. Again and again Chaplin and Waburton tricked through their opponents Át:s, and at length, fTom a pass by Chaplin livau Roberts scored. From the centre the Qaarrvman bucked up, but were checked by Owen and Lloyd Davies, who were playing a fine defensive game. W. J. Jones then got pos&eeeion. After dribbling a few "rards partedt-o E. J. Davies, who scored the second with a swift low shot. From the centre the Quarrvmen became busy on the right, and niter a few attempts to score the outside right Hettc-d with a lucky ehot, which quits Je- oeived the visiting goalie.

MISHAP AT WYNNSTAY HOUNDS' MEET. LADY RIDER THROWN. Owing to severe frost Sir Watkin Wynn's bounds had only a few hours' sport on Monday afternoon, when one fox lost his brush and an- other nearly got "snaffled." During one of the runs Miss Kynaston, of Hardwick, in taking a brook, fell under her horse in a deep hole. For- tunately she managed to extricate herself, and on her head appearing above water Robinson, the Wynnstay stable foreman, rushed to her assist- ance and got her out. The horse behaved splen- didly. 7

NOTES AND COMMENTS. PENMAENMAWR JOTTINGS. It was an exciting tussle at Penmaenmawr on Saturday, when the GJasinfryn team were the visitors, in search of League points. # The Penmaetnawr men had not suffered one defeat up to Saturday, and, of course, they still hold their record, for the game ended in a draw of five goals each. The heavy scoring represents the predomin- ance of the forward play of both sides, for the work of the attacking lines was the feature of the game. < » The G-laainfryn men were a superior lot to the homesters. » » it They played better football, and were much smarter 001 the batll tfuan. their opponents. Tho defence of the homesters was quite sound in the first half. Bob Lloyd, the goalie, especially distinguished himself by stopping several fine shots. it it it The Penmaenm awr half-backs failed to hold tillK) (llasinfryn quintette, whose pretty com- bination baffled them repeatedly. < Forward, the Penmaenmawr team are un- exceptionable. Ben Morris is a fiThe "pivot," and a "dead cert" when anywhere ncaa1 goal. < Archie Jones evidently had lias" shooting boots on on Saturday, for he found the net twice during the first half. It was in the second half that the G'asin- fryn men displayed their superiority, and notwithstanding the fact that the homesters put up a good fight, the visitors really de- served the points. » < < A word of warning to the Penmaenmawr spectators. < "Booing" the referee during the course tf p th", game, and as he was leaving .the ground, was quite out of place, more particularly as in the opi-nao-n of all who were not prejudiced his decisions were perfectly fair. # As the referee was leaving the ground two sods were thrown at him, and it is to he sincerely hoped that the Pe.-nmaknmawr Com- mittee will warn their spectators for such conduct is unworthy of League Football. • The home team had managed to make r» draw with a superior side, and their sup- porters should have been well satisfied.

COLWYN BAY v. STRADBROOK, PRESTATYN. The former teiam was entertained by the latter on Saturday last, this being the first of the "mixed"' mutches in connection with the Bay clulb. The game throughout woaa very fast. The visitors pressed first, but the home side gradu- ally gained supremacy, and a.t times became dangerous, Mbs Harrop, the visi,t,ing goal- keeper, performing one or two good saves, but no side bad scored when half-time was called. Afcer the interval the visitors became mere aggressive, and continually pressed, losing two or -three splendid opportunities of scoring by unfortunate decisions of "offside." The defence of the Colwyn Bay XI. was on the whole weaik, being at times very unreliable and frequently gui'ty of "sticks." However, Bostock, as usual, played a splendid game, and he was ably backed up by Miss E. Pollatt, the captain of the ladies' team. Owing to the bad light and only one ball being in use the game was aibandoned a few minutes off time with no goals in favour of neither team. The visitors were afterwards en- tertained1 to tea by the home team, thus con- cluding an enjoyable outing. 111
SAD DROWNING FATALITY AT LLANFAIRFECHAN. A DOG'S FIDELITY. Mr J. Pentir Williams, the North Carnar- vonshine coroner, held an inquest a,t Llan- fairfechan, on Tuesday, touching the death of William Hughes (64), carriage proprietor, Llanfairfeehan. John Roes Hughes, poor rate collector, Lla/nfairfechan, and son of the deceased, gave ■evidence of identification. He said that his father had been in weak health, suffering from sciatica, but lately he had been, a little better, amd was able to waJk about. On Monday witness was toild that his father had gone out, and he went to look for him about the Parade, but could not find him. He was told that he had gone over the bridge, and a man informed him that he had seen the retriever dog, which accompanied has father, near the bridge. Proceeding there he saw the dog, and asked it, "Where is he, Ndl?" The dog then went in the direction of the sea, and a search was then made, and the dead body was found in the water. The walk over the bridge was a favourite one of his 'father, and he might easily have fallen from the road into the water. The road sloped there, and if his father slipped he would have rolled into the sea. A Tittle boy named David John Jones, of 8, Mona-terraoe, ■ Llamfairfe'csham, who at the outset cried piteously, said he sa-w a man on the pitching and he slipped, tlicn rolling to the water. A hig black dog, which accompanied the man, dashed into the water aiiter him, and tried to drag him out by the coat, but the waves pushed him back into the seta. The man was shouting "Hi, Hi," but there was no one beside himself about at the tdme. Henry Jorss, Nelson Villa, LJanfairfechao, deposed to finding the body. ihe jury found a verdict of AocadentaJ death."
DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT RHUDDLAN. THREE HOUSES GUTTED. Early on Monday morning exciting aoenes were witnessed at Highfield-terrace, Rtii:dd;an— a row of houses recently erected .iad occi pjing a position a little beyond the Castle. There is a ieng-thy terrace of red briok houses to the north, amd at the cmd, of the terrace is a block of three houses, while a few yards nearer the Castle are a: couple of thatched' cottages. The block of thiree houses is owned by Mr Pryce Davies and Miss Bliniston, being occupied by Mr Hodge, Mr Lloyd Edwards, and Mrs Hat- wood. The residents retired- to rest on Sunday night, andl nothing out of the ordinary was observed) until about 2.30, when the oooupamts of the centre house (tenanted by Mr Lloyd Ed- wards) awoke t<) fin?d the roorns filled? 'th sni<)kg w. Further investigation revealed the fact that a bedroom was well alight, and no time was lost in giving the alarm. The flames quickly spread to the adljacent houses, the inmates being thor- oughly aroused from their slumbers by the screams of their female neighbours. Assistance was soon forthcoming, and the occupants of the three houses were brought out, e-fforts being ta)o made to save the furniture. Messenge.ra were dtispatched for the fire brigade and P.C. Gwncr Jones was quickly on the scene. Mr Conwy Bell, the captain of the Bodihyddam Bri- gade, was an early arrival, and as soon as he realised the magnitude of the task before him he telephoned to the Rhyl Police Station asking that the Rhyl Brigade be called1 out. The Bod- rhyd'dan manual was brought into play without delay, but it was found that the severe frost which had! sot in during the night (ten degrees in places) played havoc with the hose. In fact, several lengths were ripped open, so that the brigade was handicapped from the start. How- ever, the men worked with a will, and concen- trated their efforts on saving the adjacent pro- perty, as it was soon seen that there was little or no hope of preventing the fire deetroiing the upper storeys of the three houses. Neighbours carried1 the furniture from the houses to the he ply. dway or t field, op -te- The firem-m work ed gallantly, and the fact that the water froze on their uniforms indicates the conditions under which they laboured. The Rihyl Brigade ar- rived about 4 o'clock, but by this time the out: break had been blazing fop upwards of an hOlulr and a half. The Rhyl men rendered all possible ( assistance. While the lower storeys of the houses W(\ saved, the roof and top floors were completely destroyed, and a large quantity of water and smoke damaged the ground floor. FOT several hours the two brigades worked very hard, and effectually prevented the fire spreading other to the thatched cottages, or to the other terrace.
LLANDUDNO THEATRICAL MANAGER'S BENEFIT. The &-nrma complimentary benefit to Mr WilL Smith, the genial manatgHT of the Prince's Theatre, Llandiudn^, has been arranged for Wednesday evening next. Mr Smith, who has had considerable experi- ence at various theatres in the Midlands, has been on the staff at the Prince's Tneatre, Llai> diudno for upwards of seventeen years. Six years agb he was appointed stage manager,, and about four years later he was entrusted with the sole management of this popular houses of enter- r MR WILL. SIlTH. I talrfrnenfc. He is exceedingly popular aanosng all I claisses, and there is every prospect of his re- ceiving a bumper house for has second benefit. The names of the special artistes who have promised; to appear will be found in our ad-ver- tisement columns.
The Rhyl Club have decided to play the match with Llandudno on the latter ground -on the 26th. This decision has been arrived &t owing to the poor support the Rhyl Club has received at home matches. LLandudno has given a very good guarantee. I SCENE OF THE FIRE AT RHUDDLAK. At about 8.30 t'he Rhyl Brigade returned home, while the members of the Bodrhyddan Brigade took it in turns to go home to change their wet clothing. It is said' that some of the helmets of tho men were almost frozen to their heads, and not one of them had a dry coat fo his back. A tremendous quantity of water was poured on the flames, and there was plenty of evidence of this when tihe morning broke. In the narrow lane in front of the houses there was a space of about 50 yards and some six feet wide covered with ice, while the trees in the glarcten -it the side and bwk of 'h3 h-ouses-pres-ent,,d- I stran -.e ?,'P?ectacle. Fr<)in tb<) bare I-oafless branches T-un,- icielos w,li oevc-iul inches in 1;e?th, ?le the furniture out- side the houses was covered with ice. Even the books which had been hastily carried out and deposited on tables were ice-bound. Three pianos reposing by the side of the road with the tops frost-covered presented a fcomcwhait incon- gruous sight. An examination of the in the light of day showed that the cUamage was considerable. Not only hadi the roofs been de- stroyed, but soime of the standing walls were in a cliaiigorous condition. The firemen who took all necessary precautions to prevent accidents, are to be complimented1 on the splendid way in which they worked under great difficulties. The oriigin of the firai is still unknown. The only explanation that the inmates can give is that "something" must have taken fire in one of the bedrooms. The block of buildings, as will be realised from our illustration, is to-day a ruin, while mudh of1 the furniture which was saved is prac- tically useless owing to the water and knocking' they received. Fortunately, the property and furniture is in- sured, but to what extent as not yet known. The damage done is estimated at over 21WO, The theory now advanced as to the cause of the tire at Rhudidlaji is that it originated in a defective chimney flue.
CORRESPONDENCE. COLWYN BAY INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL CONTROVERSY. (To the Editor of the "Pioneer.") Sir,—I see in your last issue a letter on the above subject 'by my friend, Mr Adam- son, in which he refers to one thing I said, and to another thing which I am reported te have said, at the public meeting hoelld in the Church Room on the 8th inst. I am not at all anxious to prove myself in the right, and much less so, to prove my friend in the wrong. The quesition of the number of intermediate schools at Wrexham is, however, a matter of fact about which it may be as wicll to be correct, as it is very probable that it will be referred to again. I have before me the twentieth annual re- port of the Central Welsh. Board, 1909-1910, and on page 32 it gives the intermediate schools in the county of Denbigh, alpha- betically and cnuincrical'ly. There are eight i-nt,orm-ed-iate schools in the county; No. 7 is Wrexham (boys), and No. 8 is Wrexham (girls). Wrexham is one district for the pur- poses of secondary education, but there are two schools; just as Colwyn Bay is one dis- trict for the purpose's of elementary educa- tion, hut there are many schools in the dis- trict. For the two intermetii ate schools in Wa-exham there is one body of governors, just as for the maiDY elementary schools in the Colwyn Bay district there is one body of managers. The other thing referred to in my friend's letter is what I am reported to have eadd, namely that "there are about fifteen thousand people in Wrexham." Now, if I said that it waa clearly a mistake, and as my fiband says he heard me say it, I do not like to say I did nott. Still I cannot understand why I shouild say, even in the exciteirxait of tlie movement, what I knew to be incorrect. I had in my hand at the time the tabce giving th-o peculation of the different digtaielt6 in the county. As far as I cam rely on my own memory, what I dad stay was "There are at Wrexham two secondary schools, amd fifteen thousand pounds' grant is made to them," or words to that effect. Now, let me imonJtion another thing, quite opart f-rom the above letter, but bearing on the Question of the advisability of havihg 6U intermediate school at Colwyn Bay. It was said at tine meet rag in tlie Church Room that Siiich a school would imduce famil-ies to come to reside in the town. Let ine give three instances, which came to my knowledge: One day last w-eek, in confirmation of the above statement, a gcnitleman, whose business takes him about a good deal, told me, quite off his own accord, that he had been in conversation with a gentlemen in Liverpool who was very wishfun to come to Colwyn Bay to live, and who enquiroo if there was a secondary school here, for he had three children to educate. "When he found that there were no facilities here for second-ary education, he decided not to CCWTIXX "The same gentleman told me of *dow I., -who was -y?,ish- a, w idy ib Riamiiii,-ham f-ul ?o' com:c ',ieTo to xc", but &lie had a daughter, for whom she desired secondary education she decided not to come. The same day another gentleman, who has re- cently come to reside here, told mo of a 1"0- tired doctor and his wife, from the neigh- bourhood of Manchester, whom he met in the train, having been here to look for a house. He met the doctor a little time later, and found he had gone to reside at South port. When asked why he had not come to Coiwya Bay, he replied that he had two laughters to educate, and that they could not. get here the kind of education they required. I am convinced myself that these cises are HMily a sample of many others, and that on this ground alone, which is a very important one for the ratepayers, Colwyn Bay should insist on havingalI1 intermediate school, as proposed in the draft scheme of the Joint Education Committee.—I am, etc., THOS. LLOYD. Colwyn Bay, "November 22nd, 1910.
OUR ARMY: ITS EFFICIENCY. (To the Editor of the "Pioneer.") ,ir,-The late Lord Salisbury placed import- 0 ane,e upon inclividual share being taken in national movements. This was not without oc- casion, few owing to many that are indifferent as regards such movements as the exclusive business of some particular few, many good things beneficial to the nation fail to be realised. If I am not mistaken (I put the statement for- ward for contradiction or confirmation), Field- Marshal Earl Roberts has had much to do with the progress of temperance in our Army. This is about the best authority we could get that it is beneficial to more securely safeguard the interest of our country; that it promotes efficiency which has been, and always will be I expect, a great factor in the power of any Army. But the most extraordinary thing about temperance is that when many, if not most of our best men in all spheres of our national life should say so much in its favour, that we, in the face of their wishes and warnings, should make so little pro- gress in it, resembling in a sense the patient keeping a doctor at great expense and declining the benefit to be derived by taking his advice. But a curious part about the figures in the "Times" of 55,000 abstainers i the British Army in is, that there should be over 40 per cent. in the Army in India, viz., 32,000, and only 22,000 at home and the Colonies, which only shows 28 per cent. What explanation is there for this?—I am, etc., OLD ATHLETE. P.S.—We are so accustomed with our shores being the scene of pleasure and amusement that I reckon not one in every 1000 realise the remot- est possibility of the horror of the invasion spoken of. On the football field no effort is spared to perfect efficiency and avoid any risk in losing the cup. Yet, apparently for the want of this simple precaution we are content to risk so great a matter as the safety of our country.

HIGH HOUSE RENTS. (To the Editor of the "Pioneer"). SWr,-I shall be gLad if you will permit me to dnaw attention in your widely-read paper to a very serious niatter affectaxg everyone paying rent. Owing to Mr Lloyd George's land taxes, capital:. £ te are afraid to lend *Uj!ea t .y to buiaie? as lil -o v-,nd cx),ut,,e- quently very few new houses are bedng built —in fact, in some towns, there as now great difficulty to rent a weekly house. It is quite- clear this damand for houses is overtaijixg t.he supply, and a crises is rapidly being reached which will inevitably result in much higher rents, and that must dreadful nameiv, overcrowding, am-d also a great amount of misery aaid unemployment among aii con- nected with the building trade. C Mr Lloyd George's land taxes have so far proved most disastrous to the general wd- fare", and have ruiined the building trade. Until the taxes are tv-peaLcd, it as quite c100.r capitalists wdH not 'Lemd money to buio/dears cs hitherto. In wri-ting these lines, I am quite aware that in some towns there are to-day numbers of empty houses, but this condition of a-flaars is now altering, and the demand is beginning to overtake the supply. The outlooK is cidedly bad for all rent-payers, and these land taxes a forcible illustration of the effect of Socialist legislation earned out by reckletss politicians. Any Yote given for a Radical at the coming euectuon win be undouotedly a vote for higher housie rents and unemployment 111 the bund- ing trade, with its consequent- distress and misery among wage-earners.—I am, etc., P- E.

COLWYN BA Y AND DISTRICT IVITEPA YERS' ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor of the "Pioneer.") Sir,—I observed with pleasure the letter of the hon. secretary of this Association which appeared in your issue of the 18th inst., in reply to mine of the previous week. I see it answers one only of the questions I had ventured to suggest for the purpose of find- ing out, if possible, why so few ratepayers had attended the public meeting of the 24th ult. But I accept the answer, though it seems to me to go against the secretary of the Association, and shows hat the view I take is not a wrong one, viz., that Colwyn was in favour of an as- sociation of its own, which would in matters that particularly concerned Colwyn "Strike hard rnd long," and not cry "haltr"' until the battle was won, and its rightful share cf the up-to-date improvements of the district were secured to Col- wyn. Colwyn certainly has many grievances, and a reasonable cause to fight for; but (excepting, of course, the Colwyn members on the Executive) whether it will appear so to all, or even to the majority of the Colwyn Bay and District Rate- payers' Association, is very doubtful, at least to me.—I am, etc., H. O. HUGHES. Colwyn, November 23rd, 1910.

An "Unemployed Football Club" has been formed in Bangor. There is a possibility of the Bangor Junior Team being revived after all. If Fred Dargic (captain) can guarantee a stronger team than has hitherto done duty for the Juniors the Bangor Committee will probably revive the team. George Gray, the young Australian billiard player, on Tuesday, at Sheffield, made a break of 1140, including 1116 off the red. Thie is only three short of his record.
