FOOTBALL NOTES. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS v COLWYN BAY. (Welsh Coast League). The Amateurs opened their league pro- gramme on Saturday with a match against Colwyn Bay. A fortnight ago the Bayites had made mincemeat of the Llandudno men in a friendly on Rhos Fields, and were consequently confident of their ability to carry away two points as the result cif their visit, to Llandudno. When the Amateurs lined up it was seen that J. Ð. Williams was amongst the absentees, and that his plaice was filled by Breeze, a, young player of great promise, who partnered Jimmy Williams on the left wing. Brookes Evans was in the centre, and Davies and D. Griffiths completed the forward line. The half-back line was the same as that which did so well last year, i.e., Pearson (captain), G. Davies, and Jacob Williams. J. H. Jones and J. H. Davies were at back, and "A. Porter" in goal. The Bayites had their best team out, including1 a, coal black player, who evidently hailed from the Banks of the Congo, and who played a nice game all through. The gate did not appear to be a very large, one, considering the fine afternoon, but it is stated that the finan- cial secretary is very well satisfied with the amount taken. Although the game was a, hard one and keenly contested from beginning to end, it was not, by any means a good one. The ball was too often out of play on the Ciraigydon side of the field to be interest- ing. The first half was entirely in favour of the, home club, and they certainly should have led by more than a single goal at the interval..Hallwood, the Col- wyn Bay custodian, proved to be in great form, and it was entirely owing to his exertions that the score was not much heavier. The goal scored by the Amateurs came from the, foot of Breeze, who took a pass from Jacob Williams and planted it in the net with a, shot that gave Hall- wood no chance of preventing! a score. The Bayites improved after this, but their attacks were very spasmodia and seldom spelt danger to the home fortress. Porter was not seriously tested all: through the first half. At the opposite end, however, Hallwood had a hot time of it, but managed to scrape through, although en one occasion there was a, confident appeal for a goal when he scooped out the ball from what most spectators thought was the wrong side of the line. The referee thought differently, and play proceeded without. interruption until the whistle sounded for half-time. The second half was much more even, and at one time it looked as if the Amateurs had shot their bolt. A hot attalck by the Bayites found that the weak spot in the home defence was Davies at left full back, and playing on this for all they were worth, they soon had him in such difficulty that even Jack Henry could not save him, and a cross shot—fast and low down-made the scores equal after about fifteen minutes' play. This reverse woke up the Amateurs to the dan- ger of their position, and Jimmy Wil- liams broke away on the left, transferred at the crucial moment to his partner, Breeze, and that player with a very simi- lar shot to his scoring one in the first half, gave the home team the lead again. A minute or two later Brookes Evans brought Hallwood to his knees with a terrific drive, and then the right wing took up the attack with vigour, Hallwood being winded during an exciting episode in the goal mouth. He, however, kept his lines intact, and the game ended in favour of the home club by two goals to one. No one will deny but that the best team won) but at the same, time it was apparent that alterations will have to be made in it for future matches. J. H. Davies at back as already stated was the weak spot in the defence. He certainly tried hard, but could not do the right thing. Sam Williams, on his ordinary form, would have been a great improvement. J. H. Jones had double duty to do in conse- quence of the weakness of his partner and did it well. The half-backs were safe in defence, but did not back up the forwards sufficiently. The forwards were not a success, and probably this was the rea- son why David Griffiths was not so pro- minent as in the first two matches. There was very little fault to find with the referee, Mr Richards, of Bangor. As far as one could see he made but two mis- takes, both cases of offside, neither of which had any material bearing on the re- sult of the game. Of the visiting players, McCann at centre half was always conspicuous, and his exertions and the agility of Hallwood between the sticks saved them from a, heavier defeat. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS v.

TESTED IN RHYL. What, ha;s been tested ? Read and you'll see. Where has it been tested? Why, over in Rhyl. What was the result? Mr Edward Edwards, 7, Abbey-street, Rhyl, say.s —"I am so grateful for the vast amount of good that Doan's backache kidney pills have done me that I have recommended them to many people. I think Doan's backache kidney pills are a splendid medicine. "For 18 years I suffered agonies from kidney and bladder trouble and from stricture; I was unable to pass secretions, and I cannot describe what I went through. I was attended by doctors, and instruments had to be used from time to time. "Soon after I began with loan's back- ache kidney pills I passed a stone, which must have been the cause of the stoppage, for ever since then I have, been getting well. Now I feel like a different man. I think it wonderful that Doan's backache kidney pills should have cured me, seeing how long and seriously I suffered. (Signed) Edward Edwards." Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are two shillitngs and ninepence per box (six boxes for thirteen shillings and ninepence). Of all chemists and stores, or post free, direct from Foster-McClellan Co., 8, Wells-street, Oxford-street, London, W. You are sure to get the right medicine if you ask distinctly for DOAN'S.
"Just from Ireland, are you?" asked the "nussus." "And were you trained across the water?" "Shure, ye must know better nor that, ma'am," replied Bridget; "I was shipped' aorosa." John Simple: "What is the worst sell, Bill Sharper, that you have experienced' during your career?" Bill Sharper: "The worst cell I ever got was No. 24 at Portland Prison last year for stealing a pair of boots.

PRESBYTERIAN CONFERENCE AT COLWYN BAY. ATTACK ON ROMAN CATHOLICISM. A large number of delegates and others I., ZD who are attending the annual Conference at Colwyn Bay this week of the English churches of the Presbyterian Church of Wales arrived at Colwyn Bay on Mon- day, where the local Reception Committee had made arrangements for their enter- tainment. The Committee, is presided over by the Rev. John Edwards, the treasurer being Mr R. Hughes Jones, and the hon. secretary Mr S. Glynne Jones. The reception of some 200 delegates took place in the afternoon at the Public Hall by Mr David Lewis. Deputations attend- ed from the Urban District Council, the English and Welsh Free Church Councils, and the Vale of Conway monthly meeting of the Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Church to offer a hearty welcome to Col- wyn Bay. Dr. Cousins, the president of the Eng- lish section of the Free Church Council, said the occasion was one in which thej- could emphasise their unity in the faith. They represented the warp and woof of Nonconformity (though which was the warp and which they woof was not for him to determine). The pattern they were trying to weave was in acordance with New Testament instructions. They were an important and indispensible part of the bulwarks of Protestantism, and they recognised the need for the closest vigil- ance to prevent the threatened inroads of Roman Catholicism in their beloved land. The hydra-headed monster had been most bold of late and had evidently thrown aside all reserve. When the chief Romanist organ in this country informed them that the Eucharistic Congress just held was "the public and official return of our Lord to England," and that by this Con- gress Jesus "will t&.ke formal and solemn possession of the nation and will once more reign over the length and breadth of the land and waits to receive the homage of the English," it was vain for men to talk and write in that fashion and expect to be regarded as ordinary citizens, especially in view of the dark and ominous interpretation their own past .supplied to such utterances. The. claims of Rome stopped short of nothing but complete domination over all authorities. Wales was not exempt from Rome's machina- tions. Some Romish religious orders had been dumped down in the very heart of the Principality in spite of the rightful boast that Wales was the strongest fort of Nonconformity. The danger lay in the Nonconformists' own indifference, and therefore the Presbyterian Church was welcomed to Colwyn Bay with gratitude because of its influence. Many of its members were, honoured members of Par- liament. The Rev. Edward Lewis, New- town, president of" the Conference, re- sponded, and Mr David Lewis replied to a vote of thanks to himself. The Rev. G. Campbell Morgan preached to a, large congregation in the Pier Pavilion.
SUNSHINE RECORD. The total number of hours of br" ght sunshine re- corded at Llandudno for week ending September 27th, was 28 hours 36 minutes. The rainfall for the same week was 0.165 inches.

I THE FREE LIBRARY SITE. THE ANCIENTS LIGHTS DISPUTE SETTLED. The ancient lights dispute which for the last two or three weeks has retarded pro- gress on the new free library is now prac- tically settled. In our last issue we informed our read- ers that, the Council had offered Messrs Chamberlain and Johnson (as solicitors for Mr J. W. Will am s) £ 20 to' cover all legal expenses and an architect's fees to examine the new library plans to adAnse to what extent they should be moderated to meet the requirements of Mr Wil- liams. That offer was apparently accepted, and on Monday evening the members of the Council, with Mr Hartley, of Liverpool (on behalf of Mr Williams) and Mr G. A. Humphreys met in Committee, and the suggestions put forward by Mr Hartley were then considered. Eventually it was decided that Mr Humphreys should sub- mit details and sections to Mr Hartley on the lines indicated by hini, and the meet- ing was adjourned for that to be done. On Wednesday evening there was another meeting, when Mr Humphreys at- tended and submitted the altered plans, which were approved of, and the architect requested to forward them to Mr Hartley to be initialed by him. This was followed by a ispecial meeting of the Council, at which the above de- cision was unanimously confirmed.
PASSENGER STEAMER SUNK IN THE CHANNEL. LLANDUDNO LADY AMONG THE PASSENGERS. On Tuesday the well-known liner yacht "Argonaut" was sunk through colliding with the steamer, "Kingswell" off Dunge- ness. The "Argonaut" had been charter- ed for one of Dr. Lunn's cruises in the Mediterranean, and had on board nearly 240 persons, of whom 120 were passengers. When off Dungeness she had to lay to owing to the dense fog. It was while waiting the lifting of the fog that the acci- dent occurred. U From all accounts offi- cers2 sailors and passengers behaved with extraordinary coolness, and all were car- ried in the ship's boats, first to the "Eingswell," and then, as it was feared that vessel would also founder, to the "South Moor," a- collier steamer, in which they were conveyed to Dover. Among the passengers was Miss For- rester, of Llandudno, who in a. narrative of her experiences stated that when the shock of the collision was felt those at breakfast, hurried on deck, but returned on being told that everything was all right. "As soon as we had settled down again," she continued, "the purser came and told us to, put on our hats and coats and go on deck. We did so, of course. Then we saw that something serious had happend, for our vessel was sinking by the head. "The captain, officers, and crew were all perfectly calm, and went about their work in quiet and orderly manner. We were got into the boats as rapidly as pos- sible, and were transhipped to the vessel which had collided with us. We had been on board but a, few minutes when we were hurredly informed that she also was sinking rapidly. Of course we were alarmed, but again the coolness of offi- cers and men reassured us, and we went to the boats with as much composure as we could muster under the circumstances. "After that we remained in the boats until the Southmoor picked us up, and we were taken ashore." "Never have I seen such splendid be- haviour on the part of women," she re- plied. "One of the officers told me that he was, indeed, proud of them." Miss Forrester was loud in her praise of the officers and men. "They behaved likf English gentlemen," she said, "as, indeed, did all the men on board with but verj few exceptions." The first intimation received at Llan dudno, of the disaster, wa,s the receipt o a telegram on Tuesday evening, by Mr J Forrester, manager of the Glou,ces'ter, an, the news quickly spread. From a lettei which has been received since, we lear: that Miss Forrester has practically lew all her belongings, but as she is an e3 perienced voyager, having previous] sailed in the "Argonaut" on more tha one occasion, she is not likely to ha-, overburdened herself with too much lu: gage. Our readers will join in hear congratulations on her most providenti escape.
SIGNS OF REVIVING TRADE. Indications, slight but perceptible, reviving trade are noticed (a corrl pondent writes) in North Wales.
