BOWLS TOURNAMENT. MANSELTON'S BIG TOTAL AGAINST NEATH jl BAILWAYMEN. A DEFEAT AVENCED BY BRYMMtUL ￼ AVENCED BY BRYNMI I Glorious sunsliioe favoured local wooil- toliers in their league games on Saturday, ftnd most of the greens were in excellent Condition. Several competition games were pl.iycd, but none of the results provided any surprise. Manselton were evidently at the top of their form, and compiled the ab- normal total of 153 shots on their own green, when Morri?ton United were op- opposed in a "friendly." This, I think, M I a resord total for a four.if!k ganie in the district. Kigrht from the oute.et the Man- eeltonians began to score freeiy, and at the fifth end had accumulated 33 shots, the Mor- ristonixns having in the meantime been limited to 10. The rate of scoring during the next the ends was even greater, and the homesters halfway through the jraaae :eld a I ?-c)zal, cf 71. large majority of 54 ",ho" en a total cf 71. The second stage did not bring the Mor- ristomans any better luck, and at the 15th end the Manseltoniana had topped the cen- t'iiry- by 12, the visitors finding great diffi- culty in raising 'their total to 26. A RECORD WIN. The last six ends went in favour of the homesters, who finished up with their total fitf 153, giving them an advantage cf 119 shots. This is the biggest win in the ann1,ls of the Swansea League, and speaks'well for the prowesi of the lianselton howlers. Three of the Morriston United rinks failed to reach double figures, whilst the smallest rink tOt.it of the homeeteiv was J5. Skip F. lJewis and his partners had a day out, and in the final' eisx ends added 18 shots, raieing their aggre&ite to 44 ehots, which over- topped their opponents' tctial by 31. The Manseltonians, under Skip T. Weaver, were .,s they kept the almost equally successful, ae they kept the visiting Quartet's total to 9, while they themselves compiled 39 shots. Skips M. John .and Gwilym Bevan, with their club- matee, ea-ch accumulated 35 shots. Strange to relate they restricted their opponents to t.he same total of fix shots. St. Gabriel's are gradually making themselves secure at the had of Section "B," and it is very im- probable that they will be deposed from that position. MUMBLES BEATEN AT HOME. On Saturday Mumbles were opposed at the Southend Green, and defeated by 89. shots to 61. The Saints found the runuing very much different from what they are accustomed to on their own green, but soon tumbled to its peculiarities, and at the filth end had established ail eighteen-shot lead. The Seasiders fared better during-the next five ends. and got within twelve shots of the visitors' total of 42 shots. After- wards, however, the Saints once again be- gan to increase their lead, and at the fif- teenth end were up by 20 shots, while at the termination of the game they outpointed the homesters by 28 shots. The Seasiders were best srved on Rink 3, where A. Sladen, A. G. Davies, J. G. Morris and M. Smith just managed to outpoint the Saints, under Skif H. W. Tregoning. Play on this rink was very close throughout, and when the game had been half oompleted the visitors were one shot in front. Five ends later the position was reversed, Skip Smith leading by one shot. KEEN COMPETITION. The succeeding ends were keenly con- tested, the Seasiders ultimately winning by two shots. On Rink 1, the f-'aint.-j, under Skip W. A. Martin,' had no difficulty in ac- counting for the visitors directed by Skip If., Phillips. The home--quartet took up a lead from the opening end. and ran out v/inners by, 28 shots to 11 The Saints un- dor W. Williams on Rink 2 were similarly situated, and won by the same number of shots. Skip D. J. Squires and his partners opened well, and in the first five ends scored eleven shots while their opponent* were adding two. Here their euooess ended for a. time, as their total rema.ined stationary to>■ the succeeding five ends, the Seasiders in the meantime increasing their aggregate to 12. A ding-dong struggle ensued, but Skip Squires, at the 21st end. gained a four-shot verdict. Owmdonkin visited Park Llewelyn, and were defeated by 20 shots. Knowledge WHICH counted. The Plasmarl bowlers utilised their know- ledge of the green to the fullest, and at the fifth end were nine shots ahead on a total Of twenty—a position they maintained at the tenth end. The Owmdonkinites im- proved cowtideraibly. and at the fifteenth end had the satisfaetiorl of drawing level, with the score at 53 all. The visitors, how- e\?.r. were unable to keep np the pace, and th" Llewelynites completed the ??t end ?tt?t an aggregate of 92, to which the Cwm- donkin woodrollcrs replied with 72, Three rink victories went W the credit of Park Llewelyn, Cwmdonkin gaining tliiir solitary win oil Rink 3, where iskipi J. B, GitPout- manoeunrred F Sidey and his partners by foar ehots. Ou Rink 1, the homesters, under Skip J. Clarke, defeated a strong Cwmdon- kin quartet under Skip W. If. Hounsell. During the early ends the quartets were evenly matched, but after the tenth end the homesters scored lzeely. and totalled 29, while the visitors were comnilincr is Ih. Y. '-u Rink 2 the visitors led for the greater iaart of the game, but in the final ends Skip George Clark got his men ou the mark, and practically monopolised the j". winning by 23 shots to 28.

SHORTER ROUTE TO SWANSEA I
SHORTER ROUTE TO SWANSEA. I PROPOSAL TO ERECT BRIDCE AT I RttyDYMAERSY. I Mr. P. M. Crosthwaite, M.I.C.U., Local Governmet't Board Inspector, conducted an inquiry at Pantyffynon on Tuesday into an application made bvitle Amman- ford and Llandilo District Councils to the liotud for permission to borrow the sum of itl,500 with a view to the con- struction of a substantial bridge at Rhydymaerdy, near Pantyffynon Station. The need of a bridge at that point has been greatly felt by colliers and others, for although at present there is a foot- bridge over the ford, during the greater part of the winter it is impassable on account of the flooding around, the land being low. Several councils are interested, and promises of contributions amounting to .tl,Seo have been made by the Carmar- thenshire County Council, and the Swan- sea, Pontardawe, and Llanelly Rural Councils. The estimated cost is £ 3.500. The landowners, it is anticipated, will contribute = £ 250. It was stated by Alderman W. N. Jones that should the scheme fructify there would be a new road constructed to PnntarduJuis, which would open up a much shorter route between Ammanford and Swansea. Mr. William Evans, Ammanford, raised objections to various items in the esti- mate;, which he contended were far too low, and opposed the scheme generally on the ground that it was too costly, and that an iron girder bridge would suit the purpose.

GAmms WELCOME FAMOUS FRENCH BOXER IN LONDON. i H!S MATCH WITH CUNBOAT SMITH I ?SMAICHW)mcUM60AISM)Itf L.straordmary scenes of euth nsi«sir) marked the arrival of Georges Cllr- pintier at Charing Cross on Tuesday! afternoon. The famous boxer, who had j cotue irom Pawty for his big tight with Gunboat Smith at Olynipia tonnorrow night, was .greeted by an admiring throng, whicli included inany men well- known in the boxing world. He was accompanied by his manager, M. Deschainps, and a lurge gathering of French sportsmen. As soon as lie alighted from the train, Carpentier was. surrounded ?y a crowd of his own countrymen who waved small ti-ico ours and decorated their hero with several emblems of this kind before Georges posed before a group of Press jjlioto- grapkers. Carpentier was then escorted down the platform to a waiting cab, which was adorned with a large French flag. In order to guard him from the too enthusiastic attentions of crowds of admirers, the railway police came to the assistance of his friends, but in the short journey along the platform to the cab, Carpentier was hustled a good deal though he went through the ordeal wearing his customary smile. While he was being pushed about two or thi-e- interviewers endeavoured to ques- tion him on matters pertaining, to hi" visit. Carpentier, asked how he was feel- ing, replied, I am feeling as fitas, ever, and I am going to do my best .to win." Accompanied by his manager and a num- ber of his friends, he then entered the cab, and was driven off at a necessarily slow speed in view of the huge crowd awaiting his passage outside the station. The party proceeded to the Hotel Metropole, being enthusiastically cheered as long as they re- mained within hearing. FINAL PREPARATIONS. I The final, important stage in the pre- liminaries for the contest were reached yesterday, when Mr. Eugenie Corri was appointed referee, and Mr. Joseph Garneau (New York) and M. Victor Breyer (Paris correspondent of the "Sporting Life") judges. The duties of the judges will, of course, be to award th points. But if the contest goes 20 rounds and the decisions of the jlldgesare :it variance, Mr. Eugene Corri will name the winner. Smith has stopped all serious work and he is simply doing light foot exercises in the gymnasium, and filling his lungs with the health-giving breezes at Harrow. He is very confident about the result, and declars he will pull up the rampant French lion." The American is in won- derfully good condition-a real picture of health, and his chances of success cannot be under-estimated. If I can't hit this fellow hard enough to beat him (says Smith )I shall be the most surprised man I in B ri la in."
