PRINCE OF WALES' VISIT TO CARDIFF. PICTURESQUE DECORATIONS. (FROM OUR SOUTH WALES CORRESPONDENT.) THE visit of the Prince of Wales to Cardiff this week to lay the foundation stone of the new building of the South Wales and Monmouth- shire University College, and to formally open the editor of the Christian Herald, were charmingly decorated with Venetian masts, festoons of artificial flowers, and flags of many hues. Amongst the latter, Welshmen noticed and H.M.S. "Dido," which had specially arrived at Cardiff Docks in honour of the occasion. There was also a procession of Friendly [View of St. Mary Street, Cardiff, reproduced by kind peri-iiissioli of the editor of the Christian Ilerald, The Prince proceeded througti. this hnc tnorougIwue the railway station to Cardiff Castle, the residence of the Marquis of Bute, the of which is noticeable in the distance.

The principal streets including St. Mary Street, a picture of which we are enabled to reproduce on this page through the courtesy of with pleasure the Welsh flag--the Dragon of Wales. In fact it occupied a very prominent position on the old Town Hall, and other public buildings. The route of the Royal procession was lined with local and district volunteers, and bluejackets from H.M.S. "Topaze" Societies, illuminations of fireworks at night, illuminated concerts, and various other attrac- tions. A beautiful gold casket was presented to the Prince by the Corporation and College Authori- ties. It was of beautiful design and bore a Welsh motto.
Notes from South Wales. (From our Special Correspondent.) The Daily Press. Once again comes the report that the Harms- n Worths of London contemplate starting a daily Paper in South Wales, with Cardiff as the probable centre. It is understood that a member of this famous newspaper family was in the neighbourhood a short time ago with the view of seeing what could be done in the matter." The Prospects of a New Paper. It is patent to the keen observer, however, that papers of the class of the Daily Mail do Dot take in South Wales, and despite the fact that the proprietors of the above journal went to great expense some time ago in plocuringa special train to get it down to South Wales "in time for breakfast" each morning, it is obvious that the circulation has not perceptibly increased. The Kind of Paper Wanted. That there is, however, an opening for a ha'penny Radical and Nonconformist morning paper in South Wales is a positive fact. The London Daily News has increased its circulation considerably in Glamorganshire, within the last couple of years, but the drawback is, that it gives very little South Wales news. It is understood, however, that the proprietors con- template at no distant date devoting considerable space to South Wales matters. Apart from this fact, there is an opening for a thorough-going local Radical and Free Church morning paper to be printed in Cardiff at the popular ha'penny. Cardiganshire Railway Facilities. A correspondent in the last issue of the Welsh Gazette makes a suggestion similar to ones that I have made in previous issues of the LONDON WELSHMAN relative to improved travelling facilities in mid-Cardiganshire. He suggests the promotion of a service of motor cars between Aberayron and Lampeter, and vice versa, for passengers, and motor vans for the carriage of light goods. The correspondent contends, and I quite concur with him, that it would be better for the various local public bodies to make grants towards subsidising a service of this kind, instead of voting money towards railway schemes which never come to anything. It is true that there is another railway scheme on foot, but similar schemes have been on foot for more years than one would care to remember. A motor service would certainly be better than illusionary railways. Apostates and Their Ways. In his brilliant speech at Newport last week, Mr. Lloyd-George, M.P-, smartly criticised the Bishop of St. David's, who, it would appear, is the general in command of the Church Schools' forces. The Bishop of St. Davids was brought up in a Calvinistic Methodist Chapel in Car- narvonshire, and his father was a deacpn with that religious body. But being desirous of what
