GREAT BAND CONTESTS I Welsh Competitors at the Crystal I Palace The annual brass band competitions took place at the Crystal Palace on Saturday. The entries were conspicuous for two features— one, the absence of all the crack bands, such as the Besses o' th' Barn and the Black Dike, and the other the increase in the number of bands that entered. From Wales thirteen bands had entered for one or other of the seven competitions, the largest group being in the preliminary cup section, for which Blaengwynfi, Caerphilly, Owmbran, Senghenydd, and Ynyshir com- peted. Owing to an unfortunate circumstance the Senghenydd men were unable to com- pete. Amongst the awards were the follow- ing:— Thousand guinea championship, won by the Wingates Temperance Band. Linthwaite was second, Wyke fourth, and Irwell Springs (who won last year) eighth. Aheramran amd Tonyrefail were not placed. Grand shield section, won by Spencer's Steelworks. The Lewis'-Merthyr Colliery Band (Mr. J. Locker) competed. Junior cup section, won by Rishworth and Ryburn. Nantymoel Band (Mr. W. Smith) competed. Preliminary shield section: 1st, Wilson's Band, Hull; 2nd, Albion Colliery, Cilfynydd (Mr. A. Foxall); 3rd, Gilfach Goch (Mr. W. G. Paterson). Preliminary cup section, won by Barnsley Borough Band. Neither of the Welsh bamds in this section gained a place. Consolation cup section, won by Wrighting- ton Bond. Bargoed Band not placed. Reed band section, won by 1st V.B. Buffs. The 3rd South Walles Borderers (Mr. S. T. Roderick) not placed. The adjudicators were Lieutenant Charles Godfrey (late Royal Horse Guards Blue), Mr. Tom Morgan (late Coldstream Guards), and Mr. W.
