A meeting of the committee which carried out the arrangements in connection with the theatrical football match held at the Anfield ground took place at the Neptune Hotel, last evening, with a view to settling the financial part of the affair.
Councillor John Houlding presided. The secretaries reported that the whole of the money realised by the sale of tickets had not yet been sent in, but they estimated that after paying all expenses a net sum of £120 would remain for division between the hospitals and the children of the late Albert Smith, the founder of these sports.
