AFTER THE FIGHT. English Miners Settling Down. FAMILIES STARVING. The Press Association Derby corresponden itates that the strike is rapidly closing in the Erewash Valley of Derbyshire. The Digby and Manners Collieries.Tlkestone, will resume full work to-day (Monday) at the old rate of wages. As an outcome of a meeting on Saturday of the district council of the South Derbyshire Asso- ciation, the men are to be allowed to resume work at the old rate of wages at the Granville and Doton Park Collieries, Burton-on-Trent, this (Monday) morning. Shocking Privations. A series of mass meetings of working men were held on Saturday in various parts of South Staffordshire in support of the miners out on strike at Cannock, at which it was stated there were hundreds of families starving for bread and undergoing shocking privations. It was resolved at each meeting to raise funds, and in some districts substantial sums were realised. Miners and Coalowners. The secretary of the Miners' Union (Mr. Thomas Ashton) announced on Saturday that the miners' executive committee will meet at Derby on Tuesday to consider a resolution passed by the Coalowners' Federation. The Military Sent Home. The squadron of 17th Lancers which has been itationed at Alfreton left on Saturday for Canterbury. The fact is regarded as one of the ndications that the miners' strike is approach- ing its end. Derbyshire Getting Worse. The feeling in Derbyshire is said to be grow- ing stronger for resuming work where the old rates will be paid. No Surrender at Leeds. The Leeds miners held a. demonstration on Saturday afternoon at Stourton, and pledged themselves to fight to the bitter end, even without funds, rather than submit to any reduc- tion of wages. Threats In Dean Forest. Although, when the terms of the agreement which Mr. Rowliason and his wage committee made with the coalowners of Dean Forest were eommupicated to the men, they were favourably received, it is now clear that a contrary spirit has sprung up. The federation feeling- is dominant in some districts, and at Cinderford and Drybook there is a strong opposition to the sliding-scale. Very grave rumours are abroad of meetings at which resolutions have been passed condemning the agent and all concerned in the, to them, obnoxious settlement. It is further stated that Mr. Pickard has been communicated with, and It ".c.s leporte^feh*# federation meeting would be held at the Speech House on Sunday, and that Mr. Pickard would speak. This, however, at any rate, did not come off. Extravagant and wholly unjustifiable abuse is being heaped upon the leaders of the men. A meeting of the em- ployers was held at Gloucester on Saturday, and mass meetings of the men are being arranged g "r' to further consider the new phase which the malcontents have provoked. Flintshire Still Undecided. A statement appeared in the Liverpool papers en Saturday that the men employed at the GlyJl. Colliery had resumed work on an offer made by the proprietors of an advance in wages of 10 per cent. The detachment of Hussars billeted at Mold were immediately summoned, and marched, in the bitter weather prevailing, to protect the men who intended to go down from the inter- ference of the strikers. The statement was, however, unfounded.
MORE ABOUT ARDLAMONT. Strange Story About the Letting of the Shootings. The Press Association has received the fol- lowing extraordinary intelligence from a corre- spondent at GlasgowA sensational rumour has been circulated regarding the Ardlamont mystery, namely, that a poacher, while col- lecting some grouse, hidden amongst the brushwood, saw the whole of the tragedy in which Lieutenant Hambrough was the unfortu- nate victim, but feared for some time to mention the fact because of the possible consequences to himself. The correspondent adds that the rumour may be absolutely groundlesss, but it exists, and he sends it for what it is worth. Another chapter in the Ardlamont mystery has been opened by information obtained by a Staines correspondent. Shortly after the tragedy Mr. Jerningham, a gentleman occupy- ing rooms at Trafalgar J-louse, Greshain-road, Staines, where Monson and Lieut. Hambrough also resided during their stay III the town in the early part of the summer, received from Major Lainont, the owner of the Ajcdlamont estate, an application for the reiit of the shoot- ings, it being at the time suggested that ne bad made himself responsible for the pay- ment. Mr. Jerniugham at once replied that he knew nothing about the matter, and lie heard nothing further till Wednesday, when he received a letter from a firm of solicitors at Edinburgh a.cting on behalf of Major Lamont. Iii their communication these gen- tlemen expressed surprise at the contents of Mr. Jeri) ingliaiii's letter, inasmuch as his name appeared in the lease of the shootings. They asked for a remittance of JB450, and in timated that Mr. Jerningham would, in the course of a day or two, be communicated with on the subject by their London agent, a solicitor named Pontifex. They also ex- plained that the lease, was signed at Kisley Hall, Yorkshire, on the 9th of May last, and that a witness to Mr. Jerningham's signature was his own footmau. A letter from Mr. Pontifex was received by Mr. Jerningham on Thursday morning, and in this the demand for £ 450 was repeated, Mr. Pontifex adding that the lease was. in his possession. In an interview 'with Mr. Jemingham during the morning, the correspondent received permission to make it publicly known that that gentle- man has had nothing whatever to do with the lease of the shooting, and that if his name appears in the document it is a case of per- sonation and forgery. Mrs. Monson left Tighnabruiacli bv the s.s. Lord of the Isles on Jb ridav, and proceeded to Greenock. On arrival, there," I5hé. despatched a box of cartridges to Messrs. Hobson, gun- smiths, RiPoll, It. is. understood that "she remained in Greenock for the ni^ht with, the object of having an interview with her hus- band in Greenock Prison on ^Saturday. A Greenock correspondent telegraphs' that Mr. Monson's Edinburgh > agent had a long interview with his client, on Saturda.y. Surg. Monson, afterwards visited her husband, and remained with him an hour.
In Memory of J. P." We understand that the purchase of a house ih Canton, Cardiff, with the fund raised in memory of the late Mr. J. P. Jones was com- pleted on Saturday, and the premises vested in trustees on behalf of the widow and family. rhe amount realised was £900. Messrs. Jotham aid Jennings, chairman and treasurer of the fand, attended at the completion of the deeds.
Dynamited Rain. The Irish Times says that several scientific ixperiments were carried out at the Vartrv Reservoir at Roundweod last week, one of which was the explosion of dynamite, which brought down a large quantity of rain. An official account of these experiments will be laid before he waterworks committee.
TOMAHAWKED. A Burglar Commits a Horrible Crime. A YOUNG LADY A VICTIM. A Dalziel's telegram from Sydney on Sunday says :—This morning an attempt was made to rob the Carcoar branch of the City Bank of Sydney. The manager, Mr. Phillips, resided on the bank premises, and at an early hour was aroused by noises of an unusual character. On going out to ascertain the cause of the disturbance he was confronted by a masked burglar, who struck him savagely about the head with a small hatchet or toma- hawk. Mr. Phillips fell dead on the floor, and a young lady visitor, named Miss Cavanagh, who ran to the spot on hearing the manager's cries for help, was also killed by the would-be robber. The manager's wife, who came to the assistance of her husband and friend, waa terribly wounded with the tomahawk, and now lies in a. precarious condition. The daughter, who came to her aid, had two of her fingers chopped off in attempting to wrest the hatchet from the hands of the murderer. After a fearful struggle with the girl the latter made his escape. He made his way to the Church of England vicarage, where he stole a horse from the atable, on which he made good his escape before an alarm could be raised. The police up to the present have bad no clue as to the whereabouts of the desperado. -->
EBENEZER IN A TEMPER. The Teetotal Magistrate and the New- papers. TO THE JEDITOE. SIR.-Another glaring illustration, if such were needed, is supplied us in the leading article of your contemporary on Wednesday last, entitled Breakers Ahead," of how that paper is constantly found trimming from one side to the other, giving evidence of its disposi- tion to wobble with almost every issue, its policy, as usual, being to hold with the hare and run with the hounds." A good title for this paper would be Mr. Facing-Both- Ways," that is, if you can apply the term of "Mr." to a paper. During the last fortnight this has been the case about every other day, until, without exaggeration, it has become a common practice and a common failing. This cannot be said of the Western Mail at any rate, for, with all its faults, it is honest and fair, speaking forth the words and voicing the feelings and principles in which it believes, and which it is anxious the people should share and espouse, The rubbish which is so often retailed in the columns of your contemporary has long since become the subject of remark, but I want more especially to remark upon the attitude struck in the leader of Wednesday last, called Breakers Ahead." The editor, in this case, seems to ge considerably out of his way to assail, assault, and insult the Executive of the London Auxiliary of the United Kingdom Alliance in the prosecu. tion of the work it has set itself to accom- plish. I do not take this matter up becau-ie T happen to hold the posi- tion of district superintendent of the United Kingdom Alliance, much less have I been asked or told to reply to Breakers Ahead." I feel the meanness of any paper which can, and is constantly found, playing "fast and loose," ducks and drakes with great principles and subjects of the most solemn and vital importance, and it is because they condescend to stoop so low that I feel con- strained to criticise their action. Of course, as a paper and an editor, they have both the advantage of me and can have the last word, nevertheless, I do not shirk or shrink from call- ing attention to what I take to be their un- warrantable action. The terrible drink plague of this country is well known to be the greatest curse with which we ha.ve to contend, for by it we are brought to the verge of ruin. The curse is still rampant in our midst, and the plague well nigh as bad as ever, so much so that judges, recorders, magistrates, and others are constantly found uttering their warning voice against it. And because the United Kingdom Alliance seeks to stem the torrent of this evil and lessen the misery, crime, and vice occasioned thereby, 'your contemporary launches out upon them in language more strong and stern than choice and polite regardingfthe resolution they passed as a piece of impertinence, insolence, and those who passed it as "masterful spirits" only fit to be thrust aside, and told to mind their own busi- ness. This sort of talk is very fine and nice, indeed, and it is high time for someone to call attention to and challenge the wisdom and good taste of it. Temperance people never got any help, or but very little and very rarely, from the South Wales Daily News, and they need not expect to. Still, that is no reason why they should be allowed to heap abuse upon us and fhe temperance cause, and we stand idly by looking on, but not utter- ing a ward of protest or remonstrance. I am bold to dispute the premises laid down by your contemporary when it says, speaking of Mr. Gladstone's recent letter on the liquor traffic question, that it was a sufficiently re-assuring letter to encourage all true and rational pro- moters of national temperance and sobriety," &c. It was not sufficient, especially in the face of the Newcastle programme and the promises made in relation to this class of legislation. Whether it be acknowledged openly or not, nevertheless the temperance party is the back- bone of the Liberal Government, and it ill be- comes any Liberal organ to fling in the face of the temperance party the offensive words, Tell these masterful spirits to assert their own views." Tall talk this but let the Liberal paper of Cardiff, and the Liberal press of this country, as well as the Liberal party every- where, know that, make light of it or not. the Liberal party will have to reckon with the tem- perance party yet. And, more, they will have to listen to their cry and yield to their demands. It is only for the temperance party to do as Herbert Gladstone advised them some few years ago to do, viz., To make their voices heard above the rest," and when they do this—and they can do itwhenever they unitedly determine — then they will be listened to in spite of the advice, the taunts, and the jeers of the South Wales DaÛy News. Lord Randolph Churchill calls the drink traffic "a devilish and destructive trade." Hence, from a Tory point of view, the sooner it is got rid of the better. It is true, in a sense, that the Liberals defeated the Com- pensation Clauses" in the Local Government Bill during a Conservative Government, but it is equally true to say that the combined efforts of the temperance party of this country were instru- mental in bringing about this happy result. What we want is "fair-play and no favour." We ask no more. We will ag-ita,te until we take no less, and, whether the South Wales Daily News be for us or against us, we go on regardless of the wobbling spirit they evince and the offensive terms in which they speak of and treat the temperance party.—I am, &c., Clevedon, Sept. 21.

DYNAMITE. Five Non-Unionist Sea- men Killed. ARREST OF OFFICIALS. ACentral News telegram from San Francisco on Sunday says :—A terrible dynamite outrage, supposed to be the work of trade union sea. men, was perpetrated here this evening. A bomb was exploded against a. boarding-house in which non-unionist sailors lodged with the result that the building was wrecked, and two of its occupants killed on the spot. Four other men sustained such frightful injuries that three of them died shortly afterwards, and the fourth man now lies in a critical condition. Three prominent members of the Seamen's Union have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the crime, and the police are searching for others.

STILL RAMPANT. Typhoid Helped by Bath: ing in Filthy Water. MORE CASES in THE RHONDDA. Our Rhondda correspondent on Friday hap. pened to meet Dr. Makuna at home in Blaen: cwm when he called on him.' The doctor, who, by the way, is an Indian gentleman, had just come from Pentre, where he had been attending some cases of fever near the top of the Pentre Pit. There were three cases-a mother, an elderly daughter, and a young child of seven years. The child had died only a few minutes previous te the time our correspondent saw the doctor. The name of the family was Dalling. The mother was better and the daughter convales- cent. Speaking of the fever generally, Dr. Makuna said it was alleged that the outbreak of typhoid fever was due to the water supplied by the Ystrad Gas and Water Company. In different parts of the district where the typhoid fever was people were using water altogether different to that supplied by this company. This was an erroneous contention. In the case of fever referred to the patients used water from a brook, and he (the doctor) had examined the water and found it quite free from any contamination. The case had nothing to do with the water supplied by the Ystrad Gas and Water Company. There were cases of fever down at Llwynpia. Here different supplies of water to that of the Ystrad Gas and Water Com- pany were used. During the early part of the summer he (the doctor) had several cases of typhoid fever in that district. One of them was convalescent now. In conjunction with other medical men, he distinctly traced these cases to bathing in that river. When boys went to bathe they generally swallowed some of the sewage matter from the river, which was a kind of receptacle for all the filth of the valley. The river was, in his opinion, nothing less than a sewer canal. Continuing, Dr. Makuna said very few cases of typhoid fever occur in the valley in which there were symptoms of enteric 'fever. The cases had some. thing of the nature of marsh fever, and were amenable to the treatment given in India to those kind of cases or for cases of the remittent fever type. Again, it was alleged typhoid was due to milk supplied in the district. Typhoid, he said, could never exist in the milk unless the milk was adulterated with water, and milk could not generate the germs of typhoid in a cow. From Blaenrhondda to Treherbert there were about a dozen milk-vendors, most of whom kept cows, and had their water from different brooks. He had repeatedly examined the water drunk for the purpose of finding out about fever, but had always failed to find any evidence. In water really contaminated by filth they were met with the same result. The water supply of the Ystrad Gas and Water Company was as good as the water from Loch Katrine. If an analysis of all the qualities of water in the world were compared, they would find that the present water of the valley was one of the best in the country- It was very soft water, and altogether different and better to what was used in Cardiff. The doctor humorously remarked that the water was so hard in Cardiff, in consequence of the different salts, that when one was dirty it was as much as he could do to get the dirt off. The degree of hardness in the water of their district was less than one, which showed it was a good water. The water was one of the purest in Nature, and was derived from springs and streams. He did not believe the people of the Ehondda knew really where the water came from. It was not all from the intake at Blaenrhondda. There were six or seven sources of supply, and there were also supplies from the two intakes at Fernhill, and the one at Blaenselsig and Tynewydd. Years ago he (Dr. Makuna) gave lectures on health and homes in the Ystrady- fodwg district, and when he mooted the question of water supply at that time he could not get any. support from the medical officer of health nor the Ystradyfodwg Local Board. His contention was that a larg-e number of of houses in the district were without any water taps in the houses, and the people were drinking filthy water from the wayside brooks. He (the doctor) agitated on the matter, and the people of Heolfach interested themselves, and got about 40 taps connected with the water- works put in. Heolfach, in the matter of fever, seemed to be the centre of infection. He had lived in that locality, and he knew that the houses were in a very filthy state, as there were no proper drains there. The night- soil or refuse from the closets was buried in the ground year after year, and there had been a considerable amount of tipping going on. Most of the new houses at Heolfach were built on tips, and built with tip refuse Wond ashes mixed in the mortar. If the Ystrad Gas and Water Company went on with their scheme of constructing new reservoirs, &c., it would be a good thing, and would cost over £ 50,000. Questioned as to the sanitation of the Ystradyfodwg district, Dr. Makuria. said this portion of the work had been neglected in every way, and they (the board members) had only lately awakened to that fact. The management of the local board was in a very imperfect state. The inspectors of nuisances had all manner of duties besides those of inspectors to do, and were not allowed scope to deal with ca.ses of nuisances. They had to attend to roads, build- ings, and so on, and how could they be expected to look after the sanitary condition of the place and do it justice ? The board's surveyor, again, was a man of all work. It was ridiculous to expect the surveyor to superintend the duties of the inspectors of nuisances. They ought to have a proper clerk for this de- partment-a, resident of the place, and one who could look after the work daily. There was a great fault to find with the Ystrad Local Board, he said, and that was the continual passing of resolutions without carrying them into effect. Time after time the board had passed resolutions and nothing more had been heard of them. The other day a resolution was passed to put the Notification of Infectious Diseases Act into force, but they went to work in such a manner that the Local Government Board refused the application. The board also passed a resolution to put into force the Private Pro- perty Improvement Act, 1891, to come into operation from the 1st of March. Nothing more had been heard of it. Among other reso- lutions, the board had agreed to do the scaveng- ing- themselves, and still no action had been taken in the matter. These reso- lutions wece all good. Perhaps they looked to economy,- but he would say if the local board was to exist as a sanitary board they ought to attend to the. sanitation of the district first. Speaking of the means at the disposal of doctors for isolating cases of fever, Dr. Makuna said they were much handicapped. As to the cottage hospital on the mountain at Heolfach, it was, he alleged, an extraordinary infectious disease hospital, and was not properly fitted up. He (the doctor)"; had been medical superintendent of a large infectious diseases hospital, in London for years, and knew what the management was and what was necessary. geni at w No fresh caseS of fever have beeg reported in Llwynypia, itiid HeolfaeK The r cases "under treatment/ at Llwynypia are progressing favourably,v There are some" gra-VG' cases at Heplfach, and there is no decline here. Pentre and Ton have a few fresh cases of fever. There are now nearly half-a-dozen cases in the infectious hospi tal on the Penrhys Mountain. -Dr. Howard Da vies said special attention is being paid to the typhoid cases m Pontypridd with a view to stamping them out. There was no increase'ill the number cf cises. Withift a cfrcuaiscribed area of l.OOOi't. in Pontypridd, there were fifteen cases of fever, Cost to Newport Guardians. At the weekly meeting of the Newport Board of Guardians on Saturday the chairman drew attention to the increase of £ 28 5s. 5d. in out- door relief, as compared with the corresponding- week last year, which, he said, was becoming a serious matter. The number of outdoor paupers had increased by 184 adults and 130 children. — Mr. Moore reminded the board that the population had greatly increased.—The Rev. J. C. S. Darby said that in the northern district (which included Risca, Abercarn, and Newbridge) the increase was caused by the large amount of typhoid fever prevalent there, which, lie saM, sent up the expenses at the rate of JE25 per v;eck.—Mr. Jenkins remarked that fever was very bad at Newbridge.—The Chairman inci- dentally mentioned there were four cages of .LoJ.. #■»»»* in the workhouse. ■/
ADVANCE WALES. Welsh Doing the Big c Thing at Chicago. WE HOLD THE WINNING CARD, It had been intended that the Hon. Anthonj Howells, American Consul at Cardiff, shoulc have presided during one of the Welsh days ai Chicago, and special permission hs.d beer obtained for him from the Secretary of State tc leave his post at Cardiff for the time necessary. Mr. Howells's ill-health, however, prevented him carrying out an intention he would have so gladly fulfilled, and he was reluctantly com- pelled to forego the pleasure of attending the great eisteddfod at Chicago. On Saturday Mr. Howells received the following letter from Mr. Apmadoc, the secretary, who did so much to make the eisteddfod a brilliant success :— It was a great disappointment to us to find you could not attend the eisteddfod, but the reason given is sufficient, though we are sorry it was so, trusting you are much better, or wholly recovered, by this time. The ladie r choir of Cardif reached here on Monday evening before the eisteddfod, and we agree with you they showed 'pluck, will, and determination,' to ven- ture so far from home. We expected to find you 'o leading them into the city. Our conclusion was, not finding you there, that Secretary Gresham's cablegram had miscarried, but your letter settles that case. The two ladies' choirs at the eisteddfod sang exquisitely, but the Cardiff singers, on account of greater expression, won first prize. It was the finest contest in the eisteddfod, but we wish there had been more choirs to puzzle the people. Seven choirs appeared in the male con- test, and it was a magnificent figQt-worth coming across the ocean to see, and no one would have enjoyed it more than your- self — the Bliondda Valley taking the prize on account of deeper expres- sion. The contest between the tvhondda and the North Wales choir was one of the prettiest that anyone would ever wish to wit- ness. Hwfa Mon was in his glory. The reception to Ben Davies, Mary Davies, and John Thomas was princely. The officials of the World's Fair ^ive us credit for bringing into the fair ie most interesting and successful exercises of anything that they have had. We have the winning card, and have received their special compliments. Colonel Page came to see me the first day he was in the city, and introduced himself through your letter, and very pleased we were to meet such an elegant gentleman. My son was in the office at the time, and the colonel was coached to the places he wanted to see, and very pleased he was to have a guide. To-day, again, he called to pay his respects and to bid me good-bye. I have sent with him my sincerest regards to the Consul family at Cardiff."
GOING AHEAD IN AMERICA. Great Growth of the Tin-plate Industry. The New York Independent of Septem- ber 14 says: Poor American 'tin-plate, what a gauntlet it has had to run! Its enemies tried in every way to discomfit it. They poured contempt and ridicule upon it without stint, depreciated its quality, complained of its price, and even doubted its existence. They would not believe the statistics of the Treasury Department because they were too favourable. Well, here is a report issued under the Democratic Administration with the approval of Secretary Carlisle. What does it show ? Why. that whilr 13.646,7 'r poir> is tin-plate:, were produced in the year ending June 30, 1892, 60,275,615 were made in the nine months ending March 31, 1893. Of this last amount 25,335,499 were made from American black plate, the rest from foreign plate. This is surely an evidence of the existence of American tin- plate and of a rapid increase in the production of it. We can make it, of course. Why should it be regarded as impossible; or as a crime ? Because it illustrates the beneficence of Pro- tection.
FILTHY PUBLIC-HOUSES. Mr. McKensie's Proposal for Their Extinction at Cardiff. During the hearing of the application for all additional licensed house for the Moors at the Cardiff Licensing Sessions on Friday one of our representatives had a conversation with Mr. McKenzie, Cardiff's genial head- constable. c How do you think the question of licences should be dealt with?" asked, the pressman. "Well, in my opinion," answered the chief, there should be sufficient houses to meet the requirements of the population—so many people to every house; and then every house should be fully licensed." The effect of that would be The effect would be to enhance the value of all those houses, but the oriniarv and best-effect would be that-all those filthy, evil-smelling, and badly-ventilated places would be swept away. Again, with the houses and their licences at a higher value, the people in charge would conduct them properly, and I should think everybody would be satisfied."
DRUNK OR ASLEEP P A Swansea Man Mutilated on the Railway. A man named Thomas Bosewain, living at 22, Orchard-street, Swansea, was run into by a ballast engine on thd Mumbles line in the early hours of Saturday morning, and severely injured. He was taken to the hospital, where it was found that he had lost his left arm and one of his ears, and that two of his ribs were broken. He lies in a precarious condition. It is supposed that he was sleeping with one arm across the metals. He had a whisky bottle in his possession.

VALKYRIE. Lord Dunraven's Trip Across the Herring Pond CHAT ABOUT THE RACE. A Dalziel's telegram from New York on Saturday says: —Lord Dunraven upon his arrival here to-day was interviewed by a Dalziel. representative with regard to the prospects of the Valkyrie in the contest for the America Cup. He said, I trust the Valkyrie is in good condition. I am certain she has not been seriously injured by the stormy trip across the Atlantic. She is too staunch for that." Lord Dunraven went on to say, The Valkyrie has just as good a chance to win as the Vigilant. The Vigilant is a very fast boat, but so is the Valkyrie. I think what the captain of the Spain said is true. He saw the Valkyrie make 70 knots in seven hours under a jury rig in a heavy sea-way. She has made much faster time than that in her racing, but I must decline to tell you just how fast she has gone. There is not much difference between her speed and that of the Britannia. The Valkyrie is superior in windward work, though she is good in light airs, and last in a gale. She is only fair in moderate wind. She is an excellent sea boat. I cannot give ail opinion on the relative merits of the Vigilant and the Valkyrie, because I have never seen the Vigilant, although I would like very much to witness her performance. The Navahoe is a good boat, the best, you had on this side, when she was turned out. The Vigilant and Colonia are, jof course, improve- ments on lier."—With regard to his tour through. America, Lord Dunraven said, "I do not expect to make any hunting trips through Canad, I shall not have time."
THE REV. FATHER CORMACK On Anglican Orders, and the Ecclesias- ,tical Missing Link. Arising out of the sermon preached by Cardi- nal Vaughan at the opening of St. Paul's Catholic Church, Tyndall-street, Cardiff, and the controversy that has been lately waged in the Anglican press on the validity of Anglican orders, the Rev. Father Cormack, of St. Peter's, Roath (Roman Catholic), on Sunday night de- livered a discourse upon the subject. There was a large congregation, which in- cluded many Protestants. After making it clear that Catholics questioned the validity of Anglican orders only in as far as a claim was based thereon for the possession of the power to celebrate mass and absolve sinners, and that the Catholic Church, which admitted the priest- hood of the Greek and Itusso-dreek Church, of the Egyptian Copts, Chaldea-Nestorians, and even of the Dutch Jansenists, had no interest in denying the priesthood of the Anglican ministry, if it existed, the preacher went on to shew the grounds, especially historic—■"Which compelled the Church to take up a position unfavourable to High Church claims. The main historical ground of the rejection of an Anglican priesthood was tha,t a link ia the chain of succession was wanting. There could be no question that evidence was wanting that Barlow ever was a Catholic consecrated bishop, and there was absolute certainty that he never consecrated Parker with Catholic and valid rites. Thus fell the whole Anglican episcopate from being as of old the heads of a Catholic hierarchy to being the lay overseers of a lay ministry.
A Press Association Inverness correspondent telegraphed on Saturday -A passenger train on the Highland Railway was ran into at Ballinlig Station by a goods train from Perth. The engines and several wagons were thrown off the rails, but the passengers fortunately escaped with a shaking. The fireman of one engine was, however, badly bruised, and the engines them- selves are rendered almost useless. It is believed that the accident was caused by severe frost, which prevented the points being worked.

CAMPERDOWN. -0 The Destroyer of the VictoriaAshore at Malta. POSITION MOST DANGEROUS. A Central News telegram, dated Malta, Monday, says Her Majesty's ship Camperdown, while on her first trial trip after repairing- the damage she sustained in her disastrous collision with the Victoria, went aground at the mouth of the harbour this morning. She lies in a dangerous position. Pending the receipt of more definite news various theories are being propounded as to how the vessel got into her present position. The most feasible seems to be that she was suddenly overtaken by a sirocco, a familiar wind on this coast in the moiiths of August and September. This is a south-west wind which brings the warm air from the African coasts, and takes up the salt sea mists. The sirocco always occurs suddenly and is extremely dangerous, in conse- quence of the density of the air to navigation. Fortunately, it but rare y lasts more than a few hours. As to the position in which the vessel ». struck nothing is, of course, yet known, but if it be on the northern or eastern shore, where the rocks in many places shelve to the water's edge, there can be but little hope for the safety of the vessel. The Camperdown, which form one of our Medi terranean squadron, is a steel barbette vessel of 10,600 tons displacement, and was constructed at Ports- mouth in 1885. She is 330ft. in length, has a beam measurement of 68'5ft. and draws of water. Her indicated horse-power is 11,500, with a speed of 17'1 knots an hour. The vessel's armament consists of four 67-ton guns, six breeeeloaders, nineteen quick- firing- and seven machine guns.
NO IMPROVEMENT. Victims to Cholera at Home and Abroad. CONDITION OF HAMBURG. The official report issued on Saturday by the f Local Government Board states that no deaths from cholera or choleraic diarrhoea have been reported from Hull, Grimsby, or Cleethorpes for the past three days.
