Wrexham played their return Combination match with Cheater, on Saturday. A good number of sup- porters went down with the team to Cheater, and they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The Wrexham team was a good one, Pryce Kyffin, of llhop, and Arthur Roberts, of Gresford, appearing in the eleven. The home club was also well repre- sented, Sam Jnnes being the only absentee, Fred Evam, of Wrexham, taking his place. A new man, J. Wilson, of Stanley, aleo played. The ground was in a terrible condition, and a heavy shower of rain, which came on soon after the start, did not do it any good, nor add to the comfort of the players and spectators. Wrexham started with only ten men, J. Roberts being unahle to come by the first train, and the game had been in progress for a quarter of an hour before he appeared on the field. During that time Chester had scored their first goal. Wrexhim then showed up well, and before half-time they had notched two points. In the second half, Chester did a lot of pressing, but the defence was too good for them, and they only scored once and that was rather v, lucky one. On the other hand, the Wrexham forwards scorel twice and thus won a splendid game by four goals to two. The match was Well fought oat, and the Wrexham players are to b3 congratulated on their brilliant victory. Chester, who by the way were much the heavier team, undoubtedly had the best of the play, but their forwards stuck to the ball too long, and the Wrexham backs and half-backs played much too determined for any such liberties to be tak9n, The short passing of the home forwards wag very pretty to watch, but there all the merit ended, for nothing came of it. The play of the Wrexham forwards was entirely different. It was not so finished, but there was more go in it. Directly thty got possession of the ball they made straight for their opponents goal, and we have no doubt that Dixon was very uncomfortable on several occasions. when the Wrexham forwards were bringing the ball towards him at full speed. Ben Lewis was the best of the Chester front rank. The half-backs played well, but Ted Williams was hardly as effective as usual. R. Roberts at back rambled too much. Fred. Evans played a very good g,itne during the first half, but he received a very severe injury to his instep, which caused him great p '-in during the second portion of the match. Dixon could not be blamed for any of the goals which were scored, with perhaps th-, exception of the second, and he stopped some very difficult shot?. Turner played a champion game in joal for Wrex- ham. The way he saved on several occasions was marvellous. The backs played well, R. Roberts being in fine form. The half-backs were all good. Hayes completely beat Charlie Jones time after time. and Lea was quite equal to the task of stopping the right wing. Evan Williams had the most difficult work, but he came out of it very well, and during the latter portion of the second half he was assisted by Pryce Kyffin. who fell back. W. Turner played a strong gime in the centre. He literally forced the first- and third goals for Wrex- ham through the posts. Kyffin and A. Roberts both promise well, and did some very good work, a* did also J. Roberts. Wrexham were to have gone to Derby to play Derby St. Luke's to-day (Saturday), but that club has withdrawn from the Combination. Wrexham would like a match for February 7th. Wrexham would like a match for February 7th. Three fixtures were set down to be played on Saturday in the Welsh League, but only one came off. Mold and Westminster Rovers failing to turn up to play Druids and Rhos. • Football appears to have come to a fine pass in Wales, when a club in the semi-final ties of the Welsh Cup has to telegraph to another club that it is unable to raise a team. The Westminster Rovers have acted as we ex- pected for some time they would do, and by present appearances the League would get on much better without them, There were some good games in the first round of the Junior Cup on Saturday. Flint, the favorites, got through all right. The record score was that of eighteen goals to none made by Wrexham Victoria against Gwenfro Red Stars. We heard of an umpire in one of the ties, when several "corners had been given against his team, asking the referee most anxiously whether corner kicks counted. At a meeting of the sub-committee appointed to look after the Junior Cup Competition on Tuesday night, Mold Red Stars v. Rhyl Victoria Cross, who played a drawn game, were ordered to re-play at Rhyl to-day (Saturday.) Thp protect lodged by the Wrexhnm Reserve against Wrexham Gymnasium was sustained, and the clubs ordered to re-play on February 14th. On the same evening, the sub-committee appointed to select International teams picked the following eleven to represent Wales against Ireland at Belfast, on February 7th :—R. E. Turner (Wrexham), goal n. Roberts (Wrexham) and Seth Powell (Rhos and West Bromwich Albion), backs; P. Griffiths (Chirk). J. Mates (Chirk), and A. Lea (Wrexham), half-backs J. Da vies and W. Owen (Chirk), right wing; J. C. H. Bowdler (Rhayader and Wolverhampton Wanderers) and B. Lewis (Wrexham and Chester), left wing Alty Davies (Welshpool and Shrewsbury), centre. Umpire, Mr John Taylor, The following are the reserves :—E. Samuels (Ruabon), goal A. Lloyd (Rhyl), back; J. Roach (Oswestry), H. Pearson (Shrewsbury), and J. Jones (Chirk), half-backs; D. Jones (Rhayader) and H. Jarman (Oswestry), right wing R. Roberts (Rhos) and E. G. Howell (Builth), left wing; W. H, Turner (Wrexham), centre. The team is a good one, and we hope it will win. We gave the Irish team last week. The following is the draw for the second round of I the Welsh Junior Cup:- FIRST DIVISION. Broughton St. Paul's v. Berse Rovers. Referee, Mr W. J. Hughes, Wrexham. LIay Hall Blue Stars a bye. SECOND DIVISION. Wraxham Victoria v. Rhostyllen Reserve. Referee, Mr D. Smith, Westminster Rovers. Wrexham Gymnasium or Wrexham Reserve a bye. THIRD DIVISION. Mold Red Stars or Rbyl Victoria Cross v. Mancott and Pentre United. Referee, Mr Berrie, Rbyl. Flint v. Ho:ywell Reserve. Referee, Mr J. Wilcox, Ruabon. FOURTH DIVISION. Oswestry Reserve v. Chirk Reserve. Referee, Mr Fred Evans, Wrexham. Rhos St. John's a bye. The draw for the semi-final round in the Shropshire Senior Cup has resulted as follows Shrewsbury v. Ironbridge or Wellington. Oswestry, a bye. The match to be played on or before March 7th. A correspondent writes with reference to the Wrex- ham v. Chester match, on Saturday Wrexham, a purely local amateur team, fairly danced round Chester last Saturday, on their own ground, although Chester had strengthened their English Cup team by Evans, of Wrexham, and Wilson, of Stanley, instead of Sam Jones, who was huit the previous Saturday, and Taylor, whom Chester did not think good enough against Wrexham. Chester now say they had a poor team. This is very complimentary and encouraging to their playerf,, and especially t) Fred Evans and Wilson, who both played a champion game. Chester advertised the match as for the Championship of the District,' and the result therefore proves that Wrex- ham must be the Champions of the District. ————————————

WESTMINSTER ROVERS RESERVE.—Played at Stansty Park on Saturday, rain falling during nearly the whole of the match. Fur some time play was even, frequent attempts being made at both goals, but without anything being accomplished. At length the Stars had an openinv, and the ball was put between the postp, and at half. time tile Stars led by one goal to nil. Earlv in the -econd half, the Stars improved their score, and then the Rovers appeared likely to do something, but the I visitors' goalkeeper cleared his goal in fine style. flat:dq near the Rovers' goal gave the Stars a chance, but they did not avail themselves of it. The Rovers had another chance, and then the Stars were conceded a "corner," which proved fruitless. Shortly afterwards, a corner fell to the Rovers which met the same fate. The Stars had rather the best of the game, ultimately winning by two goals to nil.—The following team represented the winnersJ, Wynne, goal; W. Thomas and A. Lawrence, backs; H. Jones, A. Lawrence, and Charles Prydden, half- backe; Alfred Jones, William Shelboume, John Davies, George Jones, and Robert Crompton, for. wards referee, Mr W. J. Hughes, Wrexham. BBYKBO INSTITUTE RESERVE V. BROCGHTON ST. PAUL'S.—Played on the ground of the former on Saturday, in wretched weather. There was also a high wind, and this rendered accurate shooting difficult. Brymbo kicked off, and after some smart passing J. Jones scored for the Institute. D. Matthias then scored for the visitors. J. S. Wynne played an exceedingly good game, and sent in several gratid shots, but the visitors' goalkeeper was in good form. Brymbo had hard lines in not scoring, half- time arriving with the game one goal each. On re- starting the visitors scored their second goal, the Brymbo goalkeeper missing his kick. The visitors got another i A i i 5 6 goai tnrougn, wnicn, nowever was noc aiiowea. muco better play was shown during the second half, as the rain had ceased and the 6un shone brilliantly.

DERBY ST. LUKE'S V. DENTON.—At Derby, in rainy weather. St. Luke's kicked off, and play was very even to half-time, before which, however, Hope Ecored for Denton. In the second half Denton had the best of the game, but failed to add to their score t'ic result being Denton, one goal; St. Luke's, none. MACCLESFIELD V. HYDE.-At Macclefield. Hyde kicked off down hill. Macclesfield scored after fifteen minutes' play, and again obtained a goal within the next five minutes. Give and take play followed until half-time was called with the score-Ilaccles Geld, two goals Hyde, none. Immediately on the re-start Hyde scored from a scrimmage in the goal mouth. Macclesfield shortly afterwards scored, and then Hyde again put the ball through. Final score :-Maccles- field, three goals Hyde, two goals. GORTON VILLA V. BURTON SWIFTS—At Gorton. The Swifts arrived late, two half-hours only being played. The visitors played up well at the Ftart, and scored. The home team came away with a rush and drew level. Some splendid play by the home forwards resulted in a second goal. Play ruled even in the second half, no goals being scored. Final :-Gorton Villa, two goals Burton Swifts, one goal. WREXHAM V. CHESTER.— Played at Chester on Saturday, before about 1,000 spectators. C. Jones kicked off for Chester, and Turner had at once to kick away. F. Evans did some tall kicking for Chester. A corner" from the home team was well put in. Lewis shot at goal, but Ellis cleared. Some nice passing took place between Kyffin and Jones. The ball wa", however, returned, and a corner" was cleared. T. Fleming immediately afterwards headed outf-ide the posts. A corner for Wrexham was headed over the bar. Kyffin did some good work on the right wing. Turner kicktd out a slow shot, and in return R. Roberts sent the leather over the bar. A free kick for Chester rear their opponents' goal looked dangerous- A "corner" resulted, and this was kicked behsnd. Directly afterwards, B. Lewis shot first goal f( r Chester. From the kick-off from the centre, a "corner" wis gained ty Wrex- ham, but nothing came from it. Some passing between the Wrexham forwards ended in J. Roberts kicking behind. From the goal kick, the- ball was well returned, and Hayes kicked over the bar. A free kick for "hands" was awarded Wrexham in mid-field. The ball was well sent in, but eventually was headed over the bar. At the opposite end, Wilson tried a long shot, but the ball went wide. The Wrexham forwards got away, and a "corner" resulted. This was well placed, but one of the Wrexham men handled the leather, and thus the opportunity was lost. Not many minutes had passed before, trom a cross by A. Roberts, W. Turner equalised the score after a hard struggle on the goal line. This put new life into the Wrexham men and immediately afterwards R. Roberts put the ball through his own goal. The referee, however, disallowed the point, on the plea of off-side. Not to be denied, J. Roberts notched the second point for Wrexham, from a pass by Jones. A "corner" for Chester, which was got away, was the next notice- able feature, Dixon threw away after Turner had made a good run. B. Lewis put in a fast run, and just shot outside the posts. The score at half-time was Wrexham two goals, Chester one.-On changing ends, A. Roberts made a run, the ball being shot over the bar. Dixon had to throw away a shot from Kyffin. Davies then got away and a corner" re- sulted. This was cleared, and the Wrexham men visited their opponentiil goal, only to kick behind. Turner had to kick out a shct and Maddocks shot wildy behind. A free kick for "hands" against Chester in mid-field was well put by Hayee, and Turter finally scored the third point for Wrexham' A. Roberts got well down the left, but centred badly, and R. Roberts returned. Evan Williams kicked into goal and Dixon saved. C. Jones made a run, but burner saved his shot. Turner saved a shot from Davies splendidly, being granted a "corner." From this Ted Williams put in the second goal for Chester. Chester still pressed, and R. Turner saved in fine style on two occasions. A "corner" for Chester was well placed. Turner broke away. and caused Dixon to kick out. A" corner for Wrexham was followed by a free L'cktor" bands" in goal, and from this ?t?.ea 'no?tcI hed .a fourth point for Wrexham, After a «beeD got away, Turner made a fLTrnn nS fimthed up whb a 8bot. which took Dixon%11Khl-s time to clear.

r CHESTER CH A-RITY CUP. I SECOND ROUND. I CHIRK V. CHESTER RESERVE.—Played at Chirk on Saturday, There was a very large attendance of I spectators present, and for the first twenty minutes the game was played in a heavy downfall of rain. The home team won the toss, and about twenty minutes past three the ball was set rolling by Whif- tingham for Chester, The home forwards at once began to press, and a shot from the foot of Butler went the wrong side the post. From the kick off from goal another attack on the Chester citadel ended in Evans couceding a "corner," which was fruitless; another" cúrner" a minute later being sent behind by Chirk. The visitors next had a look in and took the ball well into the home territory, but the shooting of the forwards was erratic, and the ball was sent wide of the mark. A minute later Whittinybam shot the ball itit3 Hileala hands, the home custodian quickly threw out, and Butler Retting poesession raced away for the Cliester gOAl. The home left wing passed the ball to W. Owen, the latter sending in a rattling shot which just topped the crossbar. The Chester centre forward got the ball from the kick off from goal, but P. di.spossessed him, and returned the ball well down to the Chester end, some nice passing on the part of the home forwards followed, and W. Owen, after about twenty minutes' play, succeeded in shooting the ball past Evazip- anri or-nrar, fha flrof point for Chirk. This was khe only point of the first half. and when the teams changed over the home team were leading by one goal to none.—On resuming, the home team at once took the ball to the Cheshire goal, and in less than half a minuta Joe Davies notched the second point for his eide. From the kick off in the centre an attempt to capture the visitors' goal by James was frustrated, the ball being sent wide. The visitors then seemed to wake up, and the forwards by some good play took the ball to the home end, but the shooting was faulty, a shot by Hudson going the wrong side of the upright. Joe Davies got the ball from the kick-off from goal. and finished up a grand run with a shot which Evans, in defence, put behind, and Chirk were awarded a fruitless comer." The visitors again looked dangerous, R. Whittingham compelling Hiles to use his hands to keep out a very good shot. The homesters again assumed the offensive. Evans hit out a shot by Butler, and W. Owen being well up got the ball, and put in a shot which the Cheshire custodian failed to get at. and the third point was registered for the home team. From the kick-off in the centre Chirk again attacked. cutler shot, Evans tried to clear, but missed, and James put the ball through, and scored the fourth goal for Chirk. Whittingham and Ashton got possession from the centre kick, and Hiles had some difficulty in getting a shot away from the latter. Shortly before the whistle sounded Butler notched the fifth goal for his side, and the Welsh cupholders ran out winners by five goals to none. The teams were CHIRK.—-Hiles, goal; P. Griffiths and J.

I THE ENGLISH CUP. The undecided matches in the first round were played on Saturday. At Leyton, the Crusaders and Birmingham St. George's game furnished some interesting football. Neither side scored before half- time but eventually the St. George's men twice got the ball under the bar, and the result was a win for Birmingham, by two goals to none. The Blackburn Rovers again journeyed to Middlesborouah, and in this instance beat the Ironopolis club by three goals to none. Accrington v. Bolton Wanderers, was played at Accrington. During the earlier period the home club obtained a strong lead, and ends were changed with the record of four to none in their favo". Sub- sequently each side obtained a goal, and the result was a win for Accrington by five goals to one. Darwen gained a most decisive victory over Kidder- minster at Darwen by thirteen goals to nor.e.
THE LEAGUE GAMES. There were three matches among the League Clubs on Saturday. Preston North End and Aston Villa played at Deepdale, Preston, being only a small com- pany of onlookers. The North End were leading by four goals to none until near the finish when the Villa obtained a point. Preston won by four to one. Sunderland v. Notts County attracted some 5,000 spectators to the former's ground. Nothing was recorded during the first period of the game. Sub- sequently Sunderland scored four time?, and won by four to none. The visitors' goalkeeper, Toone, was injured during the progress of the see rnd period, his I leg oeing broken by a fall. Burnley and Derby County contested their game at Derby. Derby were the first to score, but befoie half-time Burnley twice drove the ball through. In the second period Burnley more than maintained their advantage, and won hy four goals to two.
I THE ALLIANCE GAMES. Several nteresting matches took nlace amongst the Alliance Clubs on Saturday. Notts Forest and Sunderland Albion, who are drawn together in the English Cup, played a drawn game at Nottingham, each side scored once. Stoke beat Crewe Alexandra by four goals to two at Crewe. Bootle beat Walsall Town Swifts by fix goals to one at Bootle. The match between Sheffield Wednesday and Newton Heath at Sheffield was very closely contested. Each team obtained one goal before change of ends. After- wards Newton Heath registered a second point, and won the match by two goals to one.

THE WELSH COLONY IN PATAGONIA. A letter, dated Port Madryn, Chubut, Novem- ber 29th, 1890, has been received announcing the arrival on the previous Wednesday of the Gulf of Trinidad after a prosperous voyage, and the fastest it had ever made from Liverpool to Port Madryn, namely, in 2n days. It had on board 26 pas- sengers for the Welsh Colony, including some who had been on a visit to Wales, and were now re- turning with fresh supplies of agricultural and other implements to carry on the work on their respective farms in the Chubut Valley, whose population now numbers considerably over 2000, most of whom are Welshmen. Among those on board the Gulf of Trinidad were the Rev. Robert Jones, of Tryddyn, and his family. Mr Jones, it will be remembered, was ap- pointed by the North Wales Association of the Calvinistic Methodists to undertake the oversight of the Calvinistic Methodist churches in the colony. The arrival of the vessel was awaited with great expectation in the colony, and the railway company had arranged for a special excursion train from Trelaw, in the upper part of the settlement, to Port Madryn on Wednesday, with the option of return- ing on the following Siturday, thus giving those who lived far up the valley an opportunity of com- ing down to the port to meet and welcome their newly-arrived friends and fellow countrymen. When the special train had reached Bwlch Mawr (The Great Pass), six miles from Port Madryn, the steamer was sighted, as it was nearing the anchor- age at Port Madryn and as soon as it was seen a ringing cheer burst forth from the delighted excur- sionietg. who in a short time had the pleasure of giving the Rev, Mr Jones and their newly-arrived friends a most cordial Welsh welcome.

I CORRESPONDENCE. I SUNDAY NIGHT BELL-RINGING. r SIR.-On Sunday night as I was in my chapel listening to the pastor, I was suddenly startled to hear the old church bells ring out. The tenour of my thoughts was effectually disturbed. and I lost the thread of the discourse, wondering what could have caused the unusual disturbance. At last I found that the quiet of the Sabbath evening had to give way, owing, as some of our statesmen express it, to a recent event at Wynnstay. Everybody I saw was astonished and annoyed at the unseemly demonstration, and grieved to think our worthy and respected Vicar should have sanctioned such secular proceedings on the first day of the week. Well, well, what are we coming to in theae degenerate days. It makes one shudder.—I am, &c., A BACHELOR. Wrexham, January 26th. MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT AT WREXHAM. SIR.-On Saturday morning—whether the fact that it is the busiest day in the week had anything to do with it I do not know-but Hope-atreet was the scene of the Corporation's well intentioned but misdirected activity. The men weie sweeping the mud into heaps, through which vehicles meandered, the net gain being of infinitesimal proportions. Not content with this, they left mud heaps opposite places of worship, as on Sunday night many persons found to their disgust. Our streets are marvels of costly inefficiency. What is the use of having a Town Council, taking Wrexham as an example, I do n.)t know. One con- clusion seems evident, the composition of the chamber wanta changing. We have had enough of wordy mediocrity, and are getting weary of those who are inebriated with the exuberance of their own verbosity —to quote our only Prime Minister. It may not be out of place to point out that the public expect something more than to comply with the demands of the rate collector.—I am, &c. TIRED I THE ANTI-TITHE DISTURBANCES IN I DENBIGHSHIRE. I DENBIGHSHIRE JOINT POLICE I COMMITTEE AND THE REPORT OF THE I INQUIRY. SIu,-A great deal of misapprehension appears to exist as to my evidence at the above inquiry and an alleged contradiction of it; therefore I beg the in- dulgence of your readers whilst I make a brief ex- planation. Alderman A. Humphreys Roberts and myself had a private conversation at his office on Saturday, the 7th of June. Then, it seems, that he wrote the chair- man of the Standing Committee a private letter giving his version of what had transpired between us, and subsequently gave his consent for Capt. Griffith- Boscawen to make public use of his letter at the last meeting of the Committee. Mr Roberts' justification for his remarkable conduct is that his attention had been drawn to the emphatic denial (at the inquiry) of Mr Parry of even expressing an opinion favorable to the calling out of the military." Mr Roberts is as in- correct in this particular as he is in other statements of his. As a matter of fact, I stated before the Commissioners that, personally, I felt disposed to- wards the introduction of the military, for the follow- ing reasons (a) The friction is less between the people and the military than it is between the former and the police. on account of the unfortunate collision in May, 1888, and because of the fact that some members of the police force have shown themselves on several occa- sions too willing to be of service to Mr Stevens and his men in their distraining work. (è) The popular demonstrations are more numerous, enthusiastic, and imposing when accompanied by the military. (c) The obstruction to the bailiffs is quite as formidable when the military are present, but the soldiers give not the slightest assistance to them. Further, I acknonLdgtd that in reply to inquiii-.s made of me on various occasions 1 might have expressed an opinion favorable to the soldiers on the grounds stated. I have also to call the attention of your readers to the fact that the scope of the recent inquiry was a very limited one. The incjuiry was into the facts which led to the application for the military in August last," and for some reason or other it was further confined to the parish of Llanefydd, excluding the adjoining parishes of lilansannan and Llanfair- talhaiarn. The first day on which Mr Stevens went to the district, during 1890, was June 12. The Chief Constable based his plea for calling out the military chiefly on what occurred on that day, the 18th of June, the 10th of July, and the 11th of August. His own words before the Joint Committee were June 18th was the disturbance which resulted in his calling the Joint Committee on June 24th "-when the ques- tion was first considered. My evidence was therefore clearly confined to the events of the above dates, and thus the conversation I had with Mr Humphreys Roberts on June 7 (some days before the first expedition to Llanefydd) was, I frankly confess, not within my recollection at the time, although I certainly did, in reply to questions, refer to one or two occurrences which took place prior to the dates before the inquiry. I certainly gave Mr Humphreys Roberts my private opinion favorable to the intioduction of the military, but I deny having requested him to write the chair. man of the joint committee on the subject. Neither did I tell him "dint the culling out of the military was an absolute necessity, or else blood would be shed." Mr Robetts must havd entirely misunderstood my meaning. Mr Windsor Davies's extraordinary ebullitions I am beginning to get accustomed to. It is not long since he declared that in connection with the anti- tithe agit.tt:on "chings ware made by men which made me aaliamefi t)f being a Welshman." He is really funny, Dr Tumour stating :.t the same meeting that he was very much pleased with the expression. Still putting aside the criminal aspect of his conduct ia this matter, his remarks about myself deserve, may be, a pas.,iiig ii(.t;i-e. Mr Davies agtett,3 that it was witinn my power to save the county the cost of the inquiry. Would Mr Davies allow me t) ask whether he considers the evidence of six lespectable farmers and two gentlemen from Denbigh, besides that of Mr Howell Gee. as not worthy of hi3 benign confederation ? Although the report of the inquiry was, by the unanimous vote of the magisterial portion of the com- mittee, laid on the tal-le. few of the ratepayers are prepared to accept the dictum of such an unrepresenta- tive body, and the great majority of them will foim their own independent opinion alter reading tho report which is presented to them. In conclusion. I beg all unprejudiced readers to notice the following facts :— 1. The opinion I expressed t) Mr Humphreys Roberts was given privately and not at all in an official capacity. It was introduced during a general conversation. 2. The alleged statement was made, according to Mr Humphreys Roberts himself, several dayr. before Mr StevenR attempted to distrain at Llanefydd, and. therefore, I could not possibly refer to any acts of the Llanefydd people. In 1888 the military were out in Llanefydd, In 1889 the tithe rent-charge was collected without either a military or a police force— simply the chief constable, his personal attendants, a magistrate, and either Mr Howell Gee or myself. How could 1. therefore, be apprehensive of blood- shed in 1890, before any attempt had been made ? 3. I emphatically deny having authorised or requested Mr Humphreys Roberts to communicate with the police committee, nor did I in any way express myseif apprehensive of "bloodshed" or riot." I acknowledge that I said that if any breach of the peace would be committed it would be by women and young people, whom it was difficult to centre!. 4. As to the emphatic denial made so much of by Mr Humphreys Roberts and other gentlemen, it was never given. A perusal of the official notes taken by Mr Adams, clerk at the inquiry, con- clusively proves this. I admitted that in reply to inquiries I might have given an opinion favorable to the military, but not for the reasons wrongly attributed to me, but for the reasons already stated. If necessary I could ask Mr Adams for permission to publish the evidence. GWILYY PARRY. Ddnbigh, 27th January, 1891. INTERMEDIATE AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN WALES. SIB,—While the proposals of the Joint Committees appointed under the Intermediate Education Act are still under consideration, it appears to me desirable, before they receive their final form, that further attention should be given to the subject of technical instruction. The whole of the money accruing under the Local Taxation Act of 1890 has been made over by the County Councils of North Wales to the Joint Educa- tion Committees, without apparently any instructions as to the manner in which it is to be distributed between intermediate and technical education. In Flintshire, the Joint Education Committee, which has also been constituted a Committee under the Technical Instruction Act, has decided to devote one quaiter of this money to technical instruction, and arrangements are actually being made throughout Flintshire for the establishment of a system of technical classes adapted to the requirements of the different districts of the county. This is an example worthy of imitation throughout the whole of the Principality but so far as I can learn there is very little prospect of any part of the money being similarly applied in other counties, unless the people of Wales speak out on the subject, and epeak before it is too late. The purpose of the Intarmediata Education Act of 1889 is thus set foith in Section 1 Sub-Section 2 of that Act vi The purpose of this Act is to make further pro- vision for the Intermediate and Technical Education of the inhabitants of Wales and the county of Monmouth. Sume people are probably of opinion that the authority thus given under the Intermediate Educa- tion Act ensures the provision of all the technical instruction that is required, and probably this is the reason that so little has hitherto bsen said on the sub- ject by the advocates of technical instruction. But everything depends upon the relati ve importance which those who administer the Act attach to inter- mediate and technical instruction respectively. Some hold that the best technical instruction is inter- mediate" instruction, although the Act clearly enough draws a distinction between the two things. Judging from what has transpire d as to the nature of the proposals of the Joint Education Committees It is evident th,t the Act will be worked in a sense adverse to technical inst uction. Some members of the committees hold the view that to mix up general and technical instruction ia the day schoole, will ruin the character of education without securing adequate technical instruction. With this view I entirely concur, and it is for this reason that I think it was a mistake to make over the local taxation money to the Joint Committees without instructions as to the manner in which it was to be expended. Side by side with the day school syttem I should like to see provision made, chiefly by means of evening classes, for technical instruction. If, however, in the meantime the whole of the money, both that available under the Intermediate Education Act, and that under the Local Taxation Act, be spent in equipping and working ordinary intermediate 8cbools. where are the funds to come from to provide technical in- struction? A special rate might no doubt be levied under the provisions of the Technical Instruction Act, but people who are already taxed for elementary and in- termediate education, and who have voluntarily taxed themselves in recent years for university education, re not likely to view with favor the proposal to "°Po"e another educational tax. Moi of the English counties have devoted the whole oUbelocal taxation money to technical inetructioD The Workmen of Wales .tand in as much neei of such instruction aa thoaeofEn?and. and if it is not secured o tbe. they will ?Ihopelessly behind iu the race of IDduir¡al progress. This will be more clearlv seen industrial progress. This will be more c l ear l v .Mn woan I 15 borne in mind that the choice offeradto the working classes in Waleir, provided that the local taxation money i8 allocated entirely to intermediate education is this, you must either do without technical instruction altogether, or, in addition to the half- penny rate already imposed upon you under the Inter- mediate Education Act, you must pay a further rate of a penny in the pound. This really amounts to a bounty to English industries, inasmuch as technical instruction can be provided in England out of the Local Taxation Funds without resource to the Tech- nical Instruction Act. Is the Welsh working man when he realises all the facts of the situation, likely to relish the prospect of being thus handicapped in the industri.,il race? Further, Wales has probably more to gain relatively than England from specitt' t, -linicat instruction for experience has shown that it Is com- palatively easy in asm-ill coun'ry iiiatruc- tion, and bring it to bear wit.i direct force on its industries. This is demonstrated in tha C'Vf of Switzerland, Denmark, and Wuitun! urg, w i ;t is universally admitted, owe their pro^ptiiiy in fcieat part to the thorough organisation of technic.il inst-uc- tion, and the superior skill, which as a con«tou-'ice. has been brought t J bar upon the development of their industries. The people of Wales should therefore insist that a part of the local taxation money—a larger part than Flintshire has given (though I am unwiilillff to appear to cavil at so excellent an example)—should in each county be set apart for the purposes of technical as distinguished from intermediate education, and thai the administration of this money should, as in F'nt- shire, be kept outside of the proposals of the JVinfc- Education Committees, unless the Committees are prepared to make schemes, such as that ot Fiinashire,. part and parcel of their proposals to tile Charity Com- missioners. This money sh( ul,i be devoted to the formation of classes, in which instruction should be- given in the "principles of science and art applicable to industries, and in the application of special branches- of bcience and art to specific industries or employ- ments." They should also insist that the accommodation, required for technical instruction should be provida,3 in the intermediate schools. There may be people in this country who still attach little importance to technical as compared, with ordinary school education. I would advise those who hold such views to ask the opinion of our great ship builders, engineers, and manufacturers as to the value of the evening classes established at our chief industrial centres. Ordinary intermediate education is deskable for all, but because we hold this view, are we to deny t > those who are unable to take full advantage of the inter- mediate schools the means of supplementing their general education by a course of instruction in those special subjects which bear upon the industries by which they earn their livelihood, and upon their proficiency in which depends their opportunity of raising themselves in life ? To such a class the establishment of a system such as I advocate is, it should never be forgotten, the only opportunity they will ever possess of continuing the process of mental training, which, after all, is the and of all true education.—I am, &c..

RACING NOTES. 1 ■ 1 ■ The short distance handicaps at the spring meet- ings have all closed with satisfactory entries, both aB to quality and quantity, and now that a decided thaw has set in, we may look for average fields. Being governed by the date on which Easter Day falls, the season opens much eailier than usual, the first day at Lincoln being set for March 16th, and this will be all in favor of light-framed horses which come soon into condition. The Batthyany Plate has secured thirty-seven sub- scriptions, including more than the usual percentage of three-year-olds, prominent amongst which are Charm, Lady Heron, Macuncaa, Nitrate Queen, Keroual, Polenta, and Queen Eleanor. Of older horses who have shown winning form over five fur- longs may be mentioned Tortoise. Morebattle, Tar- tarus, Maxim, Goodlake, Admiral Benbow, Frapotel, St. Symphorien, Juggler, King of Diamonds, Athol Lass, and Golden Crescent. The six furlongs Prince of Wales's Plate at Liverpool has received thirty-four entries, comprising Dazz!e, Grace Conroy, Upstart, Tortoise, the smart Irish three-year-old Do Beers, who won a good Nursery in the autumn at Alan- chester, Magistrate, Shillelagh, Coromandel, Day Dawn, Pioneer, Quartus, and the pair of Mr Abington's mentioned in connection with the Lincoln race, Tostig, Wise Man, Iddeskigh, High Commissioner, Carrick and Golden Crescent. The Great Surrey Handicap at Epsom has 37 subscribers, the best of which are St, Peter, Patrol, Tortoise, Boom, Prince of Tyre, if he regains his two-year old form, EupllOllr, Gjodlake, Jack O'Lantern, Maxim, Sly Fellow, The Gloamin, Marvel, Bog Myrtle, Juggler, Lady Yarmouth, Keroual, Devil's Own, and King of Diamonds. Turning to a longer racs, the Eaher Stakes of £ 1000, run over a mile at Sitndown Park, we find no fewer than 25 three-year olds in the 60 entered, the best of the young ones being High Havens, Arturo, Rousseau. St. Cyr, Hiatus and Evil Eye, wllile the mora matured horses include Papyrus, Hebiidep, Lactantius, Dry Toast, Screech Owl, Day Dawn, NViaiiing Gate, Lady Rosebery, Snaplock and Wise M-ii. The 53 names appearing in the valuable Champion Hurdle Handicap at Kempton Park include such well-known public performers as Castilian, Waterproof, Maypole, Trundle Hill. Dornoch, Franciscan, The Tyke, Benburb, Teviot M Silver Sea, Alcaeus, Grey Friars, Magenta and Tommy Upton, besides some promising new bands in Quelec, Grey well, William tlip Silent, Glory Smitten, Bartizan, Maley and Golden Gate. The Liverpool Hurdle Handicap is only two behind the Kempton race, and in addition to most of the foregoing, comprises Purple Emperor, Alexander, Mervyn, Eskeveke, Wrangler, Scope, Garnet, Bin- field, and New Moon. The Irioh contingent are likely to do well at Aintree, as the Emerald isle has in a great measure escaped the long spell of severe weather which seems to be leaving us at last. Tne "bhoya" should also be well to the fore at Man- chester in Easter week, when the rich Lancashire Handicap Steeplechase has secured such important entries as Lord Chatham, Gamecock, Battle Royal, Veil, St. Galmier, Dominion, Aladdin, Royal Meath, Ireland, Lady Sarah. Roman Oak, Choufleur, Lepre- chaun, Strong Tea, Bedouin, Ilex, Baccy, Emperor, Why Not, and Citadel, a litt which compares favorably with the Grand National. All the chief performers over sticks are also in the Jubilee Hurdle Race, which like the cross-country event, numbere 51 subscribers, J. P., Flint, Henry George, a winner over the course, Transept, and Meldrum, being the names noticeable here, but missing.on the other lists. Twenty-one accepted for the Sandown Grand Prize— Beuburb and Dornoch sharing the post of honor with 121t 71b each, the weights ranging down to 10at, at which mark Chevalet and Ethel Athol bring up the rear. Teviot at list and Maypole at lOst 61b appear to me to be very leniently handicapped, as both have shown good winning form eince the illegitimate season began. The Grand National entries were noticeable for the absence of anything trained by the veteran Mr G. Mulcaster, whose horses do not suffer so much as others from a severe winter, owing to there always being one good galloping ground on the shores of the Solwav Firth open to them. It now transpires that the Burgh by-Sands trainer posted a letter on January 2nd, containing the entries of Ringlet, Weatherwitcb, Promoter, M.P., and Grigcn. but the letter never reached Mr Gladstone, the clerk of the Course. Up to date the stewards of the Grand National Hunt do not seem inclined to allow the names to be added to the published list. This is very bard on both trainer aud owners, as there is no remedy against the postal authorities. The Nottingham races, which have been run on the forest for over 100 years are now abolished, the ground having been sold to the Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire Railway Company, and the Town Council having previously refused to elect a new Race Committee. The latest betting points to Col. North's nomination being again a hot favorite for the Waterloo Cup, and the Deemster as good a favorite as anything else for the Derby. as anything else for the Derby. BLESSINGTOH. Wednesday morning.
The son of Count Pista Karolyi, who eloped some time ago with a young Jewess, a singer in a small Vienna theatre, has written to his mother. from Boston, aiking her pardon, telling her he had already married the girl he loved, and begging her to pay a debt of 50,000 florins he had incurred out of the money that would at some time come to him. Having no hope ever to reconcile his family to liia marriage, he had made his mind up to be- come an American citizen and live by his work Lord Carrington, late governor of New South I vyaies, read a paper in London on Monday even ng giving the results of his experience in Australia.
