SMALL HOLDINGS COMMITTEE AND THE PRESS. The New Press Admission Act. Committee Say it doet not Apply. The Haverfordwest Press representatives sought to establish a right to attend the meet- ings of the Pembrokeshire Small Holdings Committee, on Saturday, at the Shire Hall, under the provisions of the Local Authorities (Admission of the Press to Meetings) Act, 1908, which has just come into force. Mr. Egerton Allen presided, and there were also present: Sir Charles Philipps, Messrs. G. L. Bowen, W. Grieve, Hugh Saunders, Captain James, Lort Phillips, -Hugh A. Williams, J. V. Colby, and J. Harries. Mr. G. B. Bowen drew attention to the pre- sence of )the Press representatives. The Chairman, who throughout this matter has been in favour of the Reporters attending the meetings, said he was looking lup the minutes of the 14th November, when an appli- cation for admission was maue by the Press representatives, and when the committee de- cided that the Reporters should not be ad- mitted, ibut that a report should afterwards be furnished to them. The Chairman now desired to know from the Press representatives whether there were any fresh circumstances which they desired jto bring to the notice of the committee. Mr. J. W. Hammond (the representative of this journal), said they claimed admission under the new Act, and especially relied on Section 13, which read: "This Act shall not extend to any meeting of a Committee of a Local Authority, as defined for the purposes of this Act, unless the Committee is itself such an Authority." He thought the delegation of powers to that committee by the County Coun- cil constituted it hn authority. The Chairman replied that for a definition of the term such an authority," they must turn to Section 2, land this committee did not appear to come under any of the definitions given there. Mr. W. Davies George said the question was whether this committee was (the County Coun- cil; was it an authority? Chairman: Such an authority as a local authority defined ifor the purpose of this Act? Mr. Davies George: That is so, sir. Chairman: It 'must be brought under some of these clauses of Section 2. I feel no doubt in my own mind that this new Act does hot give the Press representatives power to attend our meeting. Mr. H. A. Williams: I understood that the powers had been delegated to this committee by the (County Council. Chairman: I think they have. But the authority is the County Council. Mr. Hammond submitted that 'Section 3 went somewhat beyond Section 2, and that its inter- pretation should not be bound down to the definitions of the local authorities laid down in the latter section. He thought if the powers of the County Council with regard to Small Holdings had been 'delegated to the committee, it would be an authority within the meaning of this section. The Chairman, however, said the words such an authority," could only mean an authority as defined in Section 2. The Clerk then read the section of the Small Holdings Act, under which the committee was appointed as a Joint Committee of members of the County Council land outsiders. Mr. Hammond thereupon suggested that this brought the committee under one of the de- fiinitions in Section 2, 'viz., A joint committee or joint board of any two or more such coun- cils to which any of the powers ior duties of the appointing councils may have been trans- ferred or delegated." Mr. George replied that this definition re- ferred to a joint committee of two lor more councils, and the Small Holdings Committee was not that. The 4Chairman said he would now take the opinion of the Committee on the matter. His own opinion was that the Act did not help the reporters as far as that committee was con- cerned. The committee concurred with this view. Sir Charles Philipps proposed that they ob- tain an opinion on the Ipoint. This was seonded by Mr. H. A. Williams, and carried. The Press representatives then withdrew.
Accident to a Pembrokeshire Man at Merthyr. An accident, which might have resulted ser- iously, happened to Mr. A. Phillips, a traveller for the well-known firm of Messrs. Hansard and Sons, Merthyr. Whilst driving through Penydarren on Friday, the horse was fright- ened and bolted, eventually colliding with an electric standard, throwing Mr. Phillips heavily across the street, brusing his left shoulder rather badly and otherwise severely shaking him. Mr. Phillips forgot his own trouble, and had the presence of mind to instantly jump at the horse's head and kept it down until further assistance arrived. Luckily the animal, which is a valuable one, was not in any way hurt, beyond being severely shaken.

WELSH CUP. MILFORD BEATEN. Milford was beaten on Saturday at Mardy in their first round for the Welsh Cup, having had three byes in the previous rounds. The teams turned out as follows:- Mardy—Goal, William Morris; backs, H. Jones and P. Golding; halves, Jones, Griffiths, and Cox; forwards, Moseley, Abley, Hill, Locke' and Holland. MiJford-Goal, Frise; backs, Mason and Smith; halves, Gough, John, and Sanderson; forwards, Davies, Blackwell, Hoggins, Evans, and Smith. Referee,Mr. E. J. Morgan, Pont- lottyn. From first to last the issue of this game was never in doubt. The opening dash of the homesters told immediately on their opponents, who could not stand the determined rushes of the first rank. Shot after shot was driven in with grim determination, and Abley, after cen- tering nicely, have Locke his chance, which he cleverly placed in. the corner of the net, giving, Frise no possible chance to save. Mil- ford then endeavoured to force matters, and got into the Mardy territory, but the attack was very quickly defeated by Hugh Jones and Golding, and play transferred to Milford quar- ters, and Holand found the net with a very swift shot. Mardy continued to press matters, and Milford were lucky that at this stage the score was not a heavier one. From a corner Abley centred, and Holland scored with a beautiful header, and from a free kick, which was taken by Cox, Hill scored Mardy's fourth goal just before the interval. On the restart Mardy assumed the aggressive, and Holland had hard lines in not further in- creasing Mardy's lead, Ins shot striking the cross-bar. Milford made a run up the field, but could not get anywhere near enough to score. The home defence was solid, and the ball was sent back, and Mardy had another corner given them, but Holland's kick fell short. Milford cleared a smart piece of work by Abley, who on his own beat the Milford defence, and centering to Locke the ball wa., once again sent into the net. From now tc the end play slackened down, and nothing worthy of notice took place, Mardy winning by 5 goals to nil. Mardy's superiority was very marked both in defence and attack. The forwards, working well together, were always able to break through the visitors' defence, and Mardy's re. serve outside right was a great success. On the Milford side Frise in goal played a very hard and determined game, and cannot be blamed for the number of goals scored. Mason was the best of the full backs. The halves were very good, while Hoggins stood out very promi- nent in the forward line. Troedyrhiw, 4; Milford Reserves, 1. The Milford Reserves were beaten on Satur- day in the third round of the South Wales Junior Cup competition, at Troedyrhiw. In a. very pretty exposition of the game, both teams employed the same style—short, swift, passing. The homesters, however, varied occasionally, and indulged in long passing with considerable success. The Milford boys were faster than the homesters, but were not so quick to utilise an opening, and it is to their superior oppor- tunism and nippiness the Stars' victory was obtained. Troedyrhiw started and pressed. After ten minutes Hearsey scored for Troedy- rliiw. From the restart Lloyd received in mid- field, and going through on his own, scored. Milford now pressed, and scored through Evans. Resuming the homesters pressed, and Hear- sey scored his second goal with a "daisy- cutter." Play now became very fast, but the defence on both sides was very keen, the Mil- ford left back being exceptionally good. The homesters, however, eventually asserted their superiority, and rushed the ball through. Final score-Troedyrhiw, four goals; Milford Re- serves, one goal. It was evident at the end of 60 minutes' play that both sides were absolutely pumpecL out, and the play consequently degenerated. The two prominent men on the field were Tommy Lloyd, the homesters' right wing, whose single-handed run and score from half-way will not be soon forgotten, and the visitors' left full-back, whoso play was positively brilliant.
Rugby Rivals Meet. WELCH REGIMENT TO GOOD FOR NEYLAND. Last year the Norland Rugby Football Club carried al before them, and were undoubtedly the best club in the county, but since the ar- rival of the Welch Regiment at Pembroke Dock, the soldiers have challenged their title, and Neyland have now been forced to abdicate. The teams previously met at Neyland some time ago, and a hard fought game resulted in a drawn battle. Since then, however, Neyland met with a reverse at Tenby, whilst the soldiers have still a clear sheet. The return match between the Welch Regiment and Neyland was therefore looked forward too with a great deal of interest. The weather unfortunately was very wet, but despite this one of the largest crowds ever seen at Pembroke Dock assembled on the soldiers' ground, and when play com- menced they probably numbered between 2,000 and 2.500. Neyland brought over a large num- ber of supporters, including a number of the members of the fairer sex, who appeared very enthusiastic. The teams lined out as follows:— Welch Regiment: Pte. Evans, back; Lieut. Gransmore, Corpl. Reed, L.C. Collard, and Pte. Eccleston, three-quarters; Ptes. W. Bevan and J. Bevan, halves; Lieut. Jones, Sergt. Turner, Sergt. Weeks. Corpl. Murphy, L.C. lusher, Pte. Barnes, Pte. Jones, and Pte. Walsh, forwards. Neyland: E. John, back; G. Harries, H. Phillips, Lt. Warren, R.N., and G. Muses, three- quarters; Ferrier and Evans, halves; Richard- son, Webb, Jolley, Lilycrop. J. John, Nicholas, enkins and Roberts, forwards. Referee: Mr. Roberts, Llanelly. From the start the Welch made a rush to- wards their opponents' goal, and a scrum re- sulted from a knock-on in the Nevland 25. The Welch heeled the ball out, and J. Bevan feint- ing to pass made an opening, and putting in a clever corkscrew run, crossed the Neyland line ten yards from the Neyland goal-post. Lieut. Jones converted, amid, great cheering from the soldier supporters. From the re-start Neyland improved considerably and played with great determination. The game was very keenly fought out, but owing to the muddy state of the ground and the greasy condition of the ball, passing was almost out of the question, and the work was nearly all done by the opposing backs. The Neyland pack at times showed superiority over the Welch pack, but their heeling was not clean, and the Bevans were far and away too good for the Neyland halves, and Evans was repeatedly penalised for off-side. There were one or two bouts of passing by the Neyland threes, but nothing resulted. Pte. Evans at back was in fine form, and put in some splendid kicks. One of these John mulled and the ball went into touch in the Neyland 25.. In the second half the Welch attacked strongly. Scrum after scrum ensued in. the Neyland territory, but the visitors' backs de- fended well. Lieut. Jones had hard luck in not scoring on one occasion. He followed up the ball and over-ran it when within an ace of soring. Playr emained in the Neyland Quarters, for another ten minutes, and then a free-kick for offside tactics by Bevan. brought relief. Midfield play followed, and then Neyland got going and there were several pretty bouts of passing by their threes, -which, however, broke down owing to the slippery state of the ball. Presently Neyland were penalised for hooking the ball out of the scrum. and after this the Welch forwards usually got the ball out, and several attacks were initiated by Bevan, but the Neyland tackling was good and they were usually pulled up. The Welch were attacking, and there was a scruin in the Neyland 25, when for an infringement of the rules Neyland were. penalised. The kick was taken by Bevan, and he, to the surprise of the spectators, scored a magnificent goal from a most difficult angle. Neyland now attacked with groat vigour and persistency, but Evans, the Welch back, was in great form, and played a fine defensive game. Ultimately the whistle blew with the scores:— Welch Regiment, ORe goal and ono penalty goal (8 points); Neyhknd, nil. This score very fairly represented the play for the Welch were undoubtedly the better team on the day's form. As the spectators were leaving the sound of the "Dead March" were heard floating up from the band-room, and funeral cards referring to "Poor Old eyland" met with a ready sale.
