¡; HUNTING. (All Rights Reserved.) ANGLESEY HARRIERS. The hounds met at Pentraeth on Saturday, and there was a large field. Two good runs were enjoyed by all who were out, especially those on foot, who obtained a good view of all that was going on from the Gorse Banks in Pentraeth Parks. The first hare was found in Pentraeth Parks, and after running once round the park it went off to Rhos Gad, but turned sharp back into the park again, and away over the road, leaving Pentraeth Station on the left. Here the hounds began to run fast, nearly to Hendre, but the hare turning sharp back with hounds running her she was killed in the farm yard, after afford- ing a fast run of 15 minutes. The Gorse Bank, on the south side of the Pen- traeth road, was then visited, and a hare was found, which proved to be a good one, going away towards Ilendre, turning to the right by Ty'n Pwll, and on to the big fields of Bodeilia. The hare then ran by Llanddyfnan Rectory over the road to Ty'n LIan to Rhos Gad, into Pen- traeth Park, over the road, where she was killed close to the place she was first found. This was a good hunt with a big ring, time about 40m. Yhe next draw was in Bodeilia Bog, but did not find. There they drew part of IJanffinan. but did not find till the hounds got to Ty Fry, where a hare was found, and they effected a kill, al- though rain began to fall heavily, and the scent was failing, ATEREXES.
FLINT AND DENBIGH HOUNDS. These hounds met on Wednesday, the 18th, At Coed Ooch. Hounds first drew the laurels round the house. Finding at once, thoy ran him very hard to Bryn Daiisi Gorse, where he got to ground after 45 minutes without a check. Coming back to Saw Mill Gorse found one fox, but hounds oould do nothing with it, so he was left. Going on to Lletty Du Dingle, found and run sharp towards Old Colwyn, bearing to the rig'ht, through the top end of Syrdan Wood, up to Mr Morris's farm, where he was run into and kihed after a real good hunt of one hour and 15 minutes. Those out were Mr H. Bibby, Miss Biblr. Mr Lang, Mr Thompson, of the South Oxfordshire, Mr Mac. Nicoll, and several others. The hounds met on Saturday, the 21st, at Bodelwyddan Hall, where there was a good field out. Hounds first drew the Park Cover, which proved blank. Hounds were then taken on to Kinmel Gorse, where they found, and going away down the Vale to Syvere, over the Park wall at Bodelwyddan, over the wall again on the farther side, but as hounds had to be taken round on account of it being too high for them to jump, the fox had the best of the deal. Hounds could do little with him after- wards. They were then taken on to Prince's Gorse, found a brace, settling' down to one run then round the cover several times, forcing him away, where they ran into him at Erw Gaseg, after a nice run of twenty minutes. During this run there was several empty .saddle". Going on to Ende Gorse, H/nyeoed Corse, Mr C. Williams' covers, which all proved blank, then on to Wigfair larches, found a brace and a half, where they soon killed one in cover. Among those out were Mr and Mrs Davie3- Cooke, Misses Bibby (4), Captain Fosbury, Mr Voyd, Mr Ellis, Mr H. Evans, Mr Rig by, Mr Conran, Mr Conwy Bell, Capt. Cole, Miss Cole, Mir1 C.

Hounds trotted off to Maesfen, where a couple of foxes were on foot, and one was followed nearly to the Blue Bell Inn, at Tushingham. Turning righthanded he was hunted slowly round and left- handed past Tushingham, and across to the neighbourhood of Ba.rmere, where, owing to in- different scent, he got clear away after a slow hunting run of over an hour. The Goodmore Rough was next found to contain a brace of foxes. One was chopped, and the other got to ground somewhere in the thick cover. Taylor's Rough was tried fruitlessly, but in a portion of the Wyches, close to Taylor's Rough, a fox was viewed, and followed slowly across to the Mill, near Stockton Hall, where he ran them out of scent.

BETHESDA COUNTY SCHOOL (Girls) v. BRYNREFASL (Girls). Played at Brynrefail on Saturday, and resul- ted in 5-0 in favour of Bethesda. The game was brisk throughout.

There are several pro- mising' players at Brynrefail, especially among the forwards. Bethesda County School de- served the victory as they were certainly the better team.

FOOTBALL. BANGOR WEDNESDAYS v. LLANFAIRFECHAN WEDNESDAYS. CITIZENS VICTORIOUS. (By "Spectator.") Bangor Wednesdays 4 goals. Llanfairfechan 1 goal. In cold and dull weather, Bangbr Wednesdays entertained Llanfairfechan to a friendly en- counter on the Bangor Town Ground yesterday afternoon. The teams lined up as follows: — Bangor Wednesdays: Tal Griffith; Arthur Stanley and D. J. Thomas; D. Mullholland, G. 0. Roberts, and Evan Hughes; Tommy Owen, I. Thomas, D. Walford, Dick Jones, and Don- aldson. Llanfairfechan: T. H. Morgan; Ivor Jones and J. E. Morgan; J. Roberts, W. J. Jones, and R. J. Hughes; W. G. Thomas, A. E. Pugh, G. R. Davies, Eddie Thomas, and D. R- Evans. G. R. Davies set the sphere rolling, and made a rush, but Mullholland cleared to Tommy Owen, who sent to touch. Llanfairfechan p,re-sed hard now, and made some fine ruches towards the home goal. D. J. Thomas kept his opponents well in hand. The ball was kept in mid-field for some time, but the Bangor front line, led by Dick Jones and D. Walford, forged ahead, but W. J. Jones cleared. Donaldson sprung into prominence with his turn of speed, but shot feebly in the end. Arthur Stanley showed fine fettle routing the visiting front rank D. R. Evans, Llajifairlbchan outside left, secured- the ball, and succeeded in centring well, but A. E. Pugth spoilt the chance of s-cor- ing. D. Walford took up the running, and shot at goal, but Morgan cleared feebly. Don- aldson again provsd aggressive, and forced a fruitless corner. A run by Pugh was spoilt by am infringement of the offside rule. Evan Hughes and Mullholland displaced much tact- Tommy Owen, who usually plays" goal, from the outs:de right position, passed well-judged centres to Walford, who sent the ball on, and 1. Thomas found the billet. Dick Jones often proved very dangerous with pots at goal, and eventually made no mistake with a swift ground- er. Halftime: Bangor Wednesday 2, Llanfair- fechan 0. In the second half Llanfairfechan were award- ed a penalty, which W. J. Jones negotiated. TaJ, however, made a brilliant save. T. H. Morgtin went to the forward ino, and Willie Thomas took his place between the uprights. Donaldson passed to centre, and Diok Jones and Tommy Owen between them found the net. The visitors were awarded a second pen- alty, from which Morgan found the billet safe- ly. Morgan again proved aggressive, and de- livered high kick which Tal safely fisted out. Another run by Bangor found them scoring', Walford doing the needful. Full time was called, the score reading: Ban- gor Wednesday 4, Lianfairfec-ban Wednesdays 1.
LICENSING BILL TO BE THROWN OUT. As a result of the meeting of the Unionist peers at Lord Lansdowne's house on Tuesday afternoon, the Licensing Bill is likely to be re- jected on second reading in the Upper House. The proposal to reject the Bill was carried by a large majority. The following official report of tho proceedings was issued to the press:- A numerously-attended meeting of Unionist peers was held at Lansdowne House at noon on Tuesday, upwards of 230 being present. Lord Lansdowne addressed the meeting, and expressed his readiness, in the event of the body of tho Unionist peers being of the same opinion, to move an amendment in the following terms:— That this House, while willing to consider favourably any amendment which experience has shown to be necessary in the law relating to the sale of intoxicating liquors, declines to proced further with a measure which, without materially advancing the cause of temperance, will occasion great inconvenience to many of his Majesty's subjects, and violate every prin- ciple of equity in dealing with the numerous classes whose interests will be affected by the Bill. A resolution in favour of Lord Lansdowne's proposal was carried by an overwhelming majority.
