Downs, the former member for' the North Ward, resulted as follows:—Dr. Rowland Jones, 352 Dr. Roland Rogers, 198. The Colwyn Bay Urban District Council have appointed Mr. J. Le wis Jones as rate collector for the district, in succession to Mr. Edward Roberts, resigned, at a salary of £130 per annum, rising to £ ISO.

At the quarterly meeting of the Committee of Visitors of the North Wales Asylum, Denbigh, it was reported that the number of patients was now 851, or 12 more than this time last year, and that the accommodation available was only sufficient for 765, so that the institution is now overcrowded to the number of 86 patients. The extensions now being carried out at Denbigh, however, will raise the total accommodation to 917 patients by the addition of 152 beds. FLINT. The Rhyl magistrates had before them, on Mon- day, William Edward Guttridge, described as a goldminer, of 8, Preston-street, Roundhay Road, Leeds, who was charged with threatening to shoot his grandfather, Mr. W.

A serious charge of sheep worrying was preferred against Joseph Welsh and Lewis Shepherd at Llandaff. The bench imposed a fine of ^5 and costs.. Pencoed Castle, near Newport, the home of that fine old warrior, Sir William Morgan, who at the time of the Spanish Armada trained the English soldiers how to shoot, is a charming old house. Ivy-covered and half in ruins, it is a favourite spot for sketching clubs. It is not far from the famous Goldcliffe Moors, which are protected from the sea by the strong sea-wall originally built by the monks of Goldcliffe Priory. "A bad beginning makes a good ending," said a hopeful Conservative when he counted up the Unionist losses on Saturday night. Look here," and he took a Radical under a lamp-post to show him how it was still possible to have a Unionist majority of sixty. Just then a great Radical roar

Football Chat. fBy PEL DROED.] Wales v. England.- Principal interest amongst followers of Welsh Rugby football on Saturday was confined to the meeting of the Welsh and English International Fifteens at Richmond, London. The team representing Wales was the same as the side that beat New Zealand, with the exception of the fact that Harry Watkins, Uanclly, played instead of J. F. Williams (indisposed) in the forwards, and Maddocks substituted Llewellyn (who has definitely retired from the game) at three- quarter. A Few Comments.—Wales were admittedly the best side and won by 16 points to 3, but at the same time it is the general opinion that the representatives of the Principality did not play half so well as they did against the New Zealanders at Cardiff in December. Probably they held the Englishmen too cheaply and did not infuse the same resolution and vim into their play as they did at Cardiff. The Press critics write in stating that Winfield was the best full back, and Harding (Captain of the London Welsh) the best forward. Maddocks, also of the London Welsh, made a creditable debut as an Internationalist, and the Morning Leader pays him a particularly graceful compli- ment, remarking that Wales is to be congratu- lated on having found such a worthy substitute to Willie Llewellyn." Contrary to general ex- pectation Percy Bush, the Cardiff Captain, turned out for Wales, but it was evident that he was still suffering from his recent indisposition and was not in his best form. Wales v. Scotland.—Wales will have to play a better game against Scotland at Cardiff than they did against England at Richmond. I have no doubt, however, that they will do so, for the Welshmen have a higher respect for Scottish Rugby Footballers than they have for English ones. There are also indications that there will be a change, or two, in the Welsh side as the Welsh Union Committee were not exactly pleased with the side's play at Richmond. R. Gibbs, of Cardiff, is mentioned as certain of his cap," and Trew, Swansea, is also a strong favourite for a place. English Rugby 'Union -There is one thing that the English Rugby Union do infinitely better than the Welsh Union, and that is the arrangements on behalf of the Press representa- tives. Newspaper reporters who were at Rich- mond speak highly of the Press arrangements, proper seats being reserved for all representa- tives of newspapers that applied for them. The Welsh Rugby Union should show equal consideration and courtesy, and remember the all important fact that it is the Press that has made football what it is in South Wales, and not the Union. London Welsh Union.—The reunion of Welsh footballers on the eve before the battle was a great success. Dr. Davies, who carried out the secretarial arrangements, is to be con- gratulated. Whatever Dr. Davies takes in hand he always does well, and so it was on the present occasion. That the London Welsh are rare good hosts is the opinion of all footballers in Wales. Welsh Amateur Cup (Association).-In Mid Wales a great deal of interest was manifested in reference to the meeting of Aberystwyth and Newtown North End, in connection with the above cup at the former Club's ground, last Saturday. The match had, however, to be abandoned owing to a great storm of sleet, with thunder and lightning, that broke over the district.
startled him, and looking up at the screen he read, "Balfour defeated." Throwing his "estimate" under a passing tram he sadly went home, and at 4 p.m. on Sunday was still in bed. A Cardiff pilot, named Thomas Thomas, was drowned in the Channel on Sunday. He and a man named Alfred Guest had left the pilot boat, the "Winnie," to board the Spanish- steamer Abanto," but the punt in which they crossed filled with water and capsized. George Morgan, who was left in the pilot-boat, threw the men a lifebelt, which was caught by Thomas, who was unable to swim. Guest is a swimmer, and managed to get back to the pilot-boat, but Thomas dropped through the lifebelt and was not seen again. MONMOUTH. A new seam of steam coal has been struck by the Rhymney Iron and Coal Company at Groesfaen, in the Rhymney Valley. At the evening service on Sunday at the Wesleyan Church, New Tredegar, the Rev. J. V. Sutton, circuit superintendent, who was officiating, asked the congregation to sing the Doxology in thanks- giving for the defeat of Mr. Balfour at the poll, and also the other Conservatives who were similarly treated. MONTGOMERY. At Newtown Police Court on Monday George Pryce, farm labourer, of New House, near New- town, was charged with an assault upon Elizabeth Tilsley, wife of Mr. G. P. Tilsley, Pant, near New- town. When charged the prisoner remarked, Very likely nothing would have happened but for my being drunk." He was committed to the assizes. PEMBROKE. On Thursday evening Rev. John Phillips, 57, Baptist minister, Trevasser, Llanwrda, near Fish- guard, was found dead hanging from a beam in an out-building at Trevasser. Since the death of his wife six months ago deceased had been low spirited. He was educated at Pontypool College. After ordination he held a pastorate at Rhayader, Rad- norshire, and afterwards laboured at Cold Inn, Saundersfoot. He married Miss Rees, Trevasser, since which time he had acted as lay preacher at various chapels in North Pembrokeshire. He was last year's president of the Pembrokeshire Baptist Union, and was generally popular. He leaves no children.
