thu London Wanderers became monotonous and their total of 47 points to nil IB about a record for the club When W T A who is well known amongst London sporting journalists undertook to bring down team it- was understood that the city officials had secured a most attractive match because as originally selected tho visiting fifteen contained several Surrey county players as well as Kipling who was deemed worthy of a place as a forward in tho South team last season The date however proved an unfortunate one and the fact of having two trial MS on prevented Wall is and several others from turning up and the visitors had to find several substitutes in Bristol Marsh took a place on the three-quarter line and Lippett who given a chance in the Bristol trial match a fortnight ago also helped the Wanderers These two men considerably assisted the losing side and in the first half especially Marsh was prominent But even with the help thus obtained side never had a chance of holding the Bristol ians in check and they generally did much as they liked Though the match was such a one-sided affair it must not be inferred that the victors showed any slackness Right up to the finish tho whole team played with a dash which was very refreshing when we remember how easily matters have been taken in previous years when victory has been well assured The greatest fault that could bo found was with the place kicking Two more of the tries ought certainly to have been converted and then the total points would have exceeded fifty Still the work was done rather better than usual though room might still be found for a man possessing special ability in this direction for two points would turn a into a victory Tho quartette did duty on the three-quarter Hno as last week against Ex mouth and they again came through with credit At times the passing was a little wild and Smithson show a trifle move dash but these are faults which practice inay be confidently expected to rectify for there is no doubt about the individual ability of the men Gates was so clean in hia fielding of the ball as usual though his tackling was well carried out the way in onco grassed Marsh undoubtedly prevented a certain try The difficulty of improving upon Needs and Allen at half was made more apparent than ever the latter being particularly smart in his tackling It was pleasing to see Bingham again in the pack who led by Jarman and Inskip shaped very well and on their present form it is an open question if the club ever had a bettor lot of forwards way in which they combined was a revelation to and the good example of Jarman in following up nas borne fruit for he is now ably supported by others notably Thomas and Courtney who hails from Cwmbran made a favourable Tho keen manner in which lie collared was a source of able delight to the onlookers With a little more experience the policeman should do well The Wanderers would have fared even worse than they did if Marsh had not been assisting thorn Thomson who is brother to W B Thomson the Inter- national was uncertain and Cunningham confined himself chiefly to tackling which he did very well In the loose the visiting pack dribbled well and their collaring was certainly a lesson to some of our for- wards It is a significant fact that while the first team was compiling a huge score at the County Ground the reserves were doing almost as wdl at Mullet where they scored points while the extra XV also obtained in one day 114 points were placed to the credit of the club gate only amounting to 10s Now it is customary for all the expenses of tho games to bo deducted from the receipts and the takes the balance As the expenditure in this case amounted to Roberts would only have got but it was obvious such a sum was totally inadequate and the question tho committee had to deal with was to what extent that should be At first it was suggested that tho cost of tho match afc Lord's should be excluded and then came a proposal that the club should simply take a round sum like twenty-five guineas That met with general approval so Roberts will receive from the county to supplement hia subscription lists will be very much better off was at one time expected Another matter which came before the meeting was the arranging of matches with Essex C K Green was anxious to secure fixtures with Gloucestershire and we are gLid the committee were able to arrange them for they arc sure to prove ve SATURDAY'S FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION ENGLISH LEAGUE DIVISION I NOTTS v Co About people were at Trent Nottingham to sec the match between these W teams

being placed in the chancel and rarely has so much attention given in decorating the sacred edifice at this festival Tho Only one point arose during the proceedings en which was a marked division of opinion occurred in connection with the treasurership As we announced on Thursday Bristol had nominated F N Cowlin in opposition to J H Tratt of Stroud the present holder of the office Some of tho members of the committee looked upon this as r-i unwarrantable innovation and the argument was actually advanced that so long as a man was willing to hold any particular post lie to be permitted to do so That was speedily knocked on the head by tho vice-president and then Macartney mado a ment the significance of which was not thoroughly by some of tbe delegates He deprecated opposition to an officer who had so able a bianco sheet and added that if there had a vacancy he should have supported a nomination from the South G K Lockey the Bristol delegate could not see his way to withdraw tho proposal standing in the name of his club That to our mind was a trifle because it was clear the majority was against him and it would have been far more politic to have retired gracefully than to have courted tlie defeat which ultimately awaited him At the same time we do think the claims of the South to one of the executive offices is and cannot be ignored much longer Bedminster are to be heartily congratulated upon having created the chief surprise of the first round of tlie qualifying competition for the English Cup so far as tho division in which are interested is con- Bristol City were confidently expected to beat Clifton St George's chances of success ot Cowes were reduced greatly by the journey tlie team to make and Eastville were known to be well matched St Paul's prospects were small against the improved team now possess and last of all Bedminster were regarded as having not even a remote chance of holding their own against Yet they came through with flying colours and have every reason to be satisfied with their performance which vividly recalls their victory over Southampton last year in tho competition by two goals to love it is good indeed to see ono of the old amateur clubs asserting itself in this way What a sensation they will create if they do equally well in the next round This is too much to hope for regard to the way in Bristol City treated Clifton for there was practically only one team in it and Bailey spent about the warmest afternoon he has ever experienced and Lo has been through some ordeals The great match of tho series took place at the Chequers So much depended upon the result ever that the officials were too anxious to con- gratulate one another upon the gate which was the bast that has been seen in tho neighbourhood this season We wish we could aay the same about the game but we cannot for it WAS a vary poor exhibition of football the four thousand spectators witnessed Neither side ever settled down to work upon the lines have made us familiar with Cup tie style prevailed all through and though that furnished many exciting incidents they wore tlie result of luck more frequently than skill We were disappointed with the form bv both sides and more particularly that of We may say at once that with a less trusty man than Davis at full back they would have been beaten and beaten too The grand work of this beyond question he lias DO superior in inspired Carter with confidence and he played as well as ever hn did McWhirter was not at half where P Britton carried off the honours such Tbe first round ot the qualifying for

they would have won easily They have three competent halves all of whom did very well indeed two useful backs and a smart defence was therefore quite capable of Keeping their opponents on thf day's form in check and it was only for their forwards to settle down to their work for goals to come But that is just what tbe forwards could not do Green was again a failure in Uie centre and ho was not

appointment of a Bishop oJF Kristol to tbe enthronement which is to take place next month he continued speaking from the pulpit in this before having had an opportunity of doing it is an occasion for very real thankfulness to this city and neighbourhood that has so ordered that one ol great ability character love for work large large ness should have been selected for the important position of Bishop Bristol I think we ought to be thankful that in these days when party spirit runs BO high not a word in any one of the Church organs from The Times to The Rock has been used in dispute of the wisdom and the excellence of the appointment And I am pure this that that is matter for congratulation because it docs seem to us a pitiful and a regrettable fact that Clifton should frave lost the services of one whom J personally know known for maay years and who would hare been a valuable a helpful minister in cession to the vicar who retires upon soch a question as GOWD versus Surplice One had almost hoped that the days had gone by when tha surplice in the pulpit should be a rock of offence Can you conceive iu those days any assertion made that it would be impossible that the Gospel of Christ be preached so well in a surplice as in a black gown Bristol has lost much by this most unhappy state of things that has been unearthed and revealed for the first time to many of us But I am quite certain that when our new Bishop you wiU hare full notice given to Cathedral will be crowded with those who ask God's blessing upon him who has teen so well and so wisely chosen for The of has

whelm it has now somewhat subsided and shortly we shall be settled down to our usual calmness and regularity In the meantime however ifc would appear desirable in view of a recurrence of this phenomenon to fortify minds of the citizens by assuaging their fears as to its being of a dangerous nature At this juncture it would be desirable that the citizens tho old and tbe ones should know how they stand as regards their debt on the Dock Estate and how insinuatingly it is yearly increasing in volume It might be considered a matter of ancient history to recapitulate the many works in progress and by the Town Council for the improvement of the port The New Cut Railway and Timber Yawl scheme will in conjunction with tlie Railway when Uie land is not cost the city less than In the river we are spending on menus For the pontoons which nobody And lighting the riTer which nobody asked At Avonmouth the lengthening of the lock for the accommodation of the largest steamers now afloat the building of a granary the provision of cold storage warehouses new jetties for loading barges in Uie river and the extension of Avonmouth we shall incur an outlay of over making m all something like a of money Some may say that many of these expenditures will be of a remunerative character and will pay the interest and sinking fund on the outlay Our past experience Jias proved that the citizens have had to moke good the losses on the docks At tho close of the last financial year April last the docks had cost the citizens first and last the sum of Of thw sum added the year ending at that date and it may be confidently assumed that within the two years ratc we aro uow Progressing the civic indebtedness on account of our Dock Estate be fully three millions There are two matters which deserve immediate attention They The cutting off the Horse Shoe Bend and the removal of tbe sewage from the river which conjointly have been estimated to cost The Horse Shoe Bend is impediment to our present Bristol fact a danger which cannot be much longer tolerated The sewage will trate its presence at any time the paddles of an steamer stirs it up and speaks louder than i can for its immediate removal All these ments cost money and it is the general impression that our rates are already far too high But a new erase has developed itself in the minds of some of our citizens who generally pose at municipal election times as the guardians of the ratepayers interests They wish for an expenditure of another million and a half which would entail a ratc of a shilling in the pound additional to the present heavy rates without taking into consideration the ture of half a million which the Council has already sanctioned for the improvements already iu unpaid for fe This is a question that the ratepayers and property owners ot the city will have to and face boldly the next municipal elections or certainly will be saddled with a debt from which there is no in- The only persons benefited will be the shipowners by the construction of more docks ait the mouth of the river Dock will be capable of receiving the largest vessel afloat in June next The lias entered Uie dock

any port in the world The moraine alter she left Avonmouth there was not 200 tons of her cargo remaining to be trucked to its destination The shipowner having a steamer of tons dead weight capacity saves some 40 per cent on lie r working as compared with three steamers of tons carrying into consideration the cost of the three steamers as compared with the one the cost of and maintenance and the relative amount of coals consumed per ton of cargo carried There are only one set of officers and engineers to be as compared with three in the smaller is only in the stokehole and on deck that a few more men are needed Then if he can get at the for a big discount off his dues for patronising their dock say 10 per cent his fortune is made in a very short time for he work his ship at about one-half of the cost of other vessels trust our City Fathers will reconsider their determination to rush this new dock Avonmouth If they do not the citizens must assert their rights by demanding a poll of the city when the proper time comes A prospective rate of nearly nine shillings in tbe pound would soon de- populate our city and a rush would be made to outside the added area Yours NEWS BATH ACCIDENT TO
