* So Lord Kinnaird will open Everton’s enclosure. Illuminations will be the order of the day, and fireworks the illumination of the night. Besides the Prince of Wales’ Own Regiment will make melodious murmurs on the 25th.
* The Liverpool team has all arrived, and they mean to go for that Lancashire League championship.
