Another Cruel Outrage. i:1J COLLIERS FIGHTiNG WITH EXPLOSIVES, They Make a Dastardly AttemPt to Wreck a Workman's House at Ashton Green. The Press Association Liverpool correspon- dent telegraphs ;-At three o'clock this morning another dastardly outrage was committed in the neighbourhood of St. Helens, an attempt being made to blow up the house of Mr. J. Harris, of Broad Oak Parr, the same thoroughfare in whiah a similar outrage was perpetrate some time ago. Harrison was a fireman at Ashton Green Colliery, where the riots occurred on Luesday, and, having heard his house was threatened, he stayed up till one o'clock this morning with his wife and six children. At three o clock the occupants of the house and the people of the neighbourhood were roused by a tcrrifi explo- sion. followed by the smashing of glass. Harri- son. on rushing downstairs, was overpowered by the smell of robelite. pit afterwarps transpired that the explosive had been placed on the win- dow sill, and that its force had been such as to blow down the wall underneath, smashing the fanlight and wh lews and damaging the house generally. Fortunately no member of the family within was injured. Great indignation and excitement have been caused by the 1-1 occur- rence. j
FEATHERSTONE RIOlô. Government Commissioners Resume Their Inquiry. TTpon the resumption of the inquiry this morn- ing at Wakefield into the fatal disturbances at Featberstone in September last, Mr. Gill, deputy- chief constable of the West Bidmg-, stated that when in July last he became aware that there was likely to be a cessation of work in that part of the county he took steps to ascertain the number of men likely to be affected. Eighty thousand men were thrown out of employment in the West Biding by the strike. Witness described the police districts, gave par- ticulars of the strength of the local constabu- lary, and mentioned that owing to so many men being out of work an extra force of police was sent to Doncaster Races in September. It was rumoured that rioters were marching upon Don- caster Racecourse, and that they intended to loot the grand stand. While on the course he received a telegram that the rioters were proceeding to other places. Coming to the Featberstone disturbance, he read the report of Inspector Cordon, who v. as present in charge of the police, to the effect uli&t the mob wrecked the colliery property and assaulted the magistrate, police, and military with stones before the latter fired. Mr. Hartley, the magis- trate, endeavoured to use persuasion with the men before reading the Riot Act. The mob took no notice of the first two rounds of fire, but the third ttispersed them, and they left the colliery premises.
WOUNDED HIM WITH A KNIFE. Esther Christinson Sent Down for a Month. At Cardiff Police-court this morning (before Dr. Paine. Mr. Spencer, Alderman Jacobs, and Councillor F. J. Beavan) Esther Christinson, ag-ed 42 years, was charged with cutting and wounding Daniel Fitzpatrick on the head with a knife at 27, Tyndall-street, on the 19th of October.—Daniel Fitzpatrick said that on the morning in question he was havinjr breakfast when three women, among them the prisoner, and pulled him off his chair on to the floor who lame and struck him on the head with a knife. -Other evidence was given to show that there had been a general row in the house.,Dr. Roche said he found three clean-cut woundg on the prosecutor's head, which had been caused by some sharp instrument, probably not by the knife produced, because it was rather blunt.- Prisoner was sent to prison for a month.
FOUND HIS BODY. Police have Finished their Search for the Leeds Murderer. A Central News telegram says :—There is aow no doubt existing as to the guilt of Grainger Thompson, and that he committed suicide by drowning shortly after perpetrating the terrible tragedy at Leeds. Eloquent testimony of this was forthcoming this mrrning, when, shortly after seven o'clock, a, boat passing on the Leods and Liverpool Canal, near Armley Lock, turned up the body of the culprit, which had caly to be brought to the bank to be easily identified. The cut on the nose and the man's Ijald heae were excellent marks of recognition, and the police having been called immediately pronounced the body to be that of Thompson, Subsequently Mellor, a brother-in-law of the deceased identi- fied the body. That Thompson committed suicide was proved conclusively by the fact that large stones were found in his pockets, and in the legs of his trousers. The body had the appearance of having been in the water a con- siderable time, and therefore it is supposed Thompson committed suicide immediately after having perpetrated the crime. --<0-
KILLED BY ^EWEfi GAS. NL & Pafk Policemen Meet Death ityShelter- ing From the Cold. A Dalziel's telegram from New York says:- A very remarkable accident was found to have occurred in the Central Park in this city on Thursday morning. During the i-dght foiir men. three of whom were parkpolioemen,entered a small building on the croquet grounds in which the croquet sets are kept for the players. Tho night was bitterly cold, and the men went there for shelter. This morning three of them were found lying on the floor of the build- ing jlead and one dying. The investigation which has been made into the case shows that the sewer pipe leading' into the building was without a cap, and that when the men entered and closed the window to keep ovit the cold they became drowsy by the effects of the escaping- gas, and that in falling asleep they were suffocated.
Stole Patent Fuel. At Cardiff Polioe-court this morning- (before Dr. Paine, Mr. Spencer, Alderman Jacobs, and Council ler F. J. Beavan) Thomas W. Pearce, 23, William Skeates, 22, and Anne Impey, 66. were charged with stealing six blocks of patent fuel, value Is., from a be at in the Glamorgan Canal, the property of the Star Patent Fuel Company, on the 19th insfc. Mr. Isutfedew pro- aecated, and Mr. If rank IrVillnunM (Intended the female prisoner. Aft i K the evidence and Mr. Williams's cio i n, Impey was dischargee. The 11 ) s pleaded j guilty, 'and were each sent to prison for two I ] months, with hard labour.
Charged with Stealing. CARDIFF BUILDERS ON TRIAL AT THE SESSIONS. Said to have Annexed Large Quantities of Deals from a I Local Timber Yard. At Cardiff Borough Quarter Sessions this morning (before Mr. B. F. Williams, Q.C.) Edward Mordecai, 52, builder; John Aubrey Mordecai, 24, builder; and John Lubbock, 34, builder, were charged with feloniously stealing 120 deals, the property of Jonas Watson and others, at Cardiff, from June 30 to August 16. Edward Mordecai and John Aubrey Mordecai were fur- ther charged with feloniously stealing 30 red deals and a quantity of flooring boards, the pro- perty of Jonas Watson and others, at Cardiff, between the 10th and 30th of May, 1893 and Georg-e Roberts, 30, labourer, was charged with feloniously stealing 30 red deals. a quan- | i'.ty of flooring boards, and skirting' boards, alaa 120 deals '.1.11d one ']0id of flooring board j s,m; property at his masters, Jorias Watson anu others, at Cardiff, between the 10th and 30th of May Tllne ?0, August 16, and September 20 and 23 re;-f/ :ctively. Mr. C. J. Jackson and Mr. Rhys William; (instructed by Mr. T.H.Belcher) were for the prosecution; Mr. Bowen Row- lands, Q.C., and Mr. Howell (instructed by Mr. Georg'e David) defended Lubback Mr. A. Lewis (instructed by Mr. J. H. Jones) eppeared for the two Mordecais and Mr. S. T. Evans, M.P. (instructed by Mr. D. W. Evans) represented Roberts. Mr. Jackson opened the case, and, after ex- plaining the charges, went on to say that Mr. Jonas Watson in conjunction with others, carried on business as timber im- porters at Cardiff. George Roberts was a servant in their employ, in the position of fore- man of a gang of labourers, whose duty was to load timber from directions received from the office or the out-door manager, Mr. Hellier. Edward and John Mordecai were builders who were building houses in a part of Cardiff kr.own as Saltmaad, in Grangetown, and Lubbock was a builder who was putting up some buildings near to the two Mordecais. For some time past Messrr;. Watsons had missed a large quantity of deals and other timber from their premises, which property had been stolen. On the 1st of July last Messrs. Watsons, in pursuance of their usual practice, took stock of all the goods on their premises. Between the first week of July and September a considerable quantity of deals were missed from a couple of piles of timber from their yard on the East Wharf. The missing deals were of a particular quality and a particular size. They were ImCfwn as Memel deals and were exported from the Russian port of Memel, and imported to Cardiff by Messrs. Watsons. Although it was quito a usual and a common thing to import deals. llin. deep and 7in. in thickness, it. was a very uncommon thing to import them of this particular size, llin. deep and2Jin. in thickness. These deals, of this particular quality and size, were used in the shipbuilding trade for making bulkheads. It was very uncommon for deals of this description and size to be used by builders, and it was a very expensive and extravagant form of timber to be used by builders, who gene- rally used timber of other sizes and less expen- sive, but which answered the same purpose. Mr. Jackson then explained Messrs. Watsons' method of carrying on business, which was that customers requiring timber had to go to the office or to the out-door manager, who would know what timber was in stock er on order. Roberts was not authorised to sell timber to anyone. On September 14th last the Baltic ship Albert Ehrmswold arrived at Cardiff with a cargo of flooring boards, and some time afterwards a. quantity of this timber was missed, and some of it was subsequently found in possession of the prisoners. Mr. Jackson, further stated he understood that the defence was to be based on the fact that there was no concealment, and that the property was taken openly from the premises, but he sub- mitted that the fact that it had been taken openly and not in p a clandestine manner had helped materially to conceal the felony. Samuel Argyle said he was a ganger, and worked under .Roberts. He held the key of the lower yard at night, but in the day Roberts sometimes held it. He remembered taking stock in July last, and took stock of the llin- by 2Jin. deals. Up to September he had not received orders to deliver any of those deals. There were several piles of these deals, and they stood by the wall between the yard and a back lane. Between July and Sep- tember he noticed that some of the deals were missing. About four weeks ago he saw Roberts loading- timber over the wall, the boards being wmit Titr rou6"k th° palings. He told Roberts that it Mr. Watson saw it he (Roberts) would get ou^door manager, Mr. Hellier, should be at the yard at six o'clock, and when he was there he always made out the order for timber. When Mr. Hellier was not there the orders were made out bv someone in the office. Cross-examined by Mr. S. T. Evans He kept the key of the yard in the day time, and when- ever Roberts wanted it he had to get it from the witness. Hellier was the head man in the yard, but when he was not there at six o'clock in the morning, and unless witness had had his orders overnight, Roberts gave him orders. He had nothing to do with cash transactions, and W j j-"? ^4 ^*n to load timber he did so, and did not make inquiries. He saw that some of the deals had gone, but he did not know whether properly or improperly. By Mr. A. Lewis He did not know how many deals had been missed, and did not know the quantity in the piles. Hope-street abutted on the premises, and it was a usual thing to deliver timber through the entrance in that street. By Mr. Bewen Rowlands It was usual to deliver timber over the wall, and it was done in open daylight, being delivered into the firm s wagons. When he was ex- amined before the magistrates he said it was a frequent occurrence for small builders to come to the yard between six o'clock and nine o'clock and have the orders given by them to be executed at once, if the timber had not to go to the mill to be cut. Those orders were executed on the authority that of Hellier or Roberts. When he saw the deals being loaded over the wall he did not know who they were for, and did not know they had been loaded for Messrs. Morris and Smith. Re-examined by Mr. Jackson: The instruc- tions made it improper to load timber over the wall, the wagons being supposed to come in- side the wall. Thomas Griffiths, a traveller, said he was em ployed by Messrs. Watsons, and knew the prisoners. On the 27th of September, he was in Saltmead, and noticed some flooring board, which was similar to the can;1 being discharged from the Albert Ehrmswold, They were lying outside the building being erected by the Mordecais. On another occasion he saw another quantity of the timber inside the building. He produced the delivery book, and Mr. Jackson was proceeding to examine as to the entries when an objection was raised by counsel for the defence, but the Recorder ruled that it was a question of fact, and allowed witness to answer the questions. In neither of the books was there an entry of any sale to the Mordpcais. Neither was there an entry in the cash book of the firm. The boards outside the Mord^cais's building lie re- cognised as having the same marks as the timber that 'was discharged from tne Albert Ehrmwold. Pieces of the timber with the marks, both from the ship and the building, were produced. He also saw a llin. by «Memel white deal at the Mordecn is' .s building R. n ¡ticed some of the deals were out bv the thin w; y, a.nd were thus 5Jin. by 2Jin. They appeared to De cut by a circular mw. It wa.a not the custom to cut deals in that way. The llin. by 2 £ m. deals were more, expensive than the 11m. by 3in., they being imported for a par- ticular purpose. He had never seen any builders -the Mordecais and Lubbock excepted-who used timber of the lift, by !2gin. size. He, in the company of Detectives Scott and Rankin, saw some llin. by 2Jin. deals, which he identified. He said to Lubbock, We are in search of Mr. Watson's deals, and I taink that's one of them." Lubcock said, That's not a. 2Jin. deal, it is a 3in. deal. I've have had an |in. board taken off it." Cross-examined by Mr. S. T. Evans, witness had an assistant to help him, named William Rees, and he would not say his assistant never took orders for timber. Witness had sold deals to the Mordecais in this year. He called upon them, and they had gone down to the office and had arranged with the manager for the timber. Messrs. Watsons never supplied builders with llin. by 21in. deals instead of llin. by 3in. when llin. by 3in. were asked for. Red deals llin. by 21in. were supplied, but not white. He did not know that llin. by 2|in. had been supplied by Messrs. Watsons to a builder named Harris. He could not say whether or not his firm had supplied white deals, llin. by 2iin., to Mr. T. Prosser, builder, on August 25. Witness looked at the deli very book, and found that ono white deal, llin. by -2$in., had been supplied to Mr. Prosser. He found by looking at the book that Mr. Meah, a builder; Mr. W. C. Chick, (For continuation see next edition.)
The Great Battle. WHAT MR. LYNE THiNKS OF TO-MORROW'S MATCH. Welsh Rugby Union will on Tuesday Consider Cooper's Case and Select a Trial Team. Newport in their statement re Cooper do not go for orjagainst him. They leave it to the Union to decide, and the Union will consider the case (with Cooper's comments) next Tuesday at Cardiff. Cooper, if eligible, will thus only be prevented from playing one match after the consideration of his case by the Yorkshire League. The Jameses have, I have been informed appealed personally to the English Union for re- instatement, giving the requisite arguments in favour of the removal of the ban against them, but they have been informed by Mr. Rowland Hill that the English Union decline to re-open the question-at any rate at this time. A colleague got an opinion from Mr. Lyne respecting Saturday's match. Here is what Mr. Lyne says :—" I think we shall win, but not by; any means easily. If it is a fine day I should not be surprised if Newport were to gain a. substantial victory, but if it is wet and heavy it will be a toss up." What about the teams?" "I have seen Cardiff play on two occasions this season, and I am satisfied that it will be a close match. In the forwards we shall have slightly the best of it. The Cardiff men do not play with that combination which is the great feature of the Newport team. I have not seen a really good bit of forward passing amongst them. They play too much individually, but, no doubt, combination will come after more practice. In the three-quarters Cardiff will hold their own. They are very strong, and some splendid passing was witnessed between Elliott and his wing last Saturday. In the halves I think we shall have an advantage, but then Smithgon is an excellent fellow. I think we shall be the best in the pack, but in the backs there will not be much to choose. International matches are beginning early at the Weston School, Bath. On Wednesday last Wales played England, and let us hope that the result-four goals (one dropped), three tries, and five minors to England's three minors is only a foreshadowing of what we shall do in the international matches this year. Although of but a miniature scale, it is worth while re-producing the two teams. Here they are :— England: Back. W. Rossiter (Bristol); three- quarter backs, D. Priest, captain (London), A. Knibbs (Birmingham), H. P. Lawrence (Bristol)' and W. Littlewood (Birmingham); half-backs' S. Knowles (Bath) and A. Jenkins (Bradford); forwards, A. Barnes (Bath), G. Rabone (Bir mingham), E. P. Tanner (Bristol), J. Neate (Exeter), W.Sidball (Weston), Gwyn( Hereford)' Fulton (Chippenham), and Leonard (Devizes)' Wales :-Back, James Stockwood (Cowbridge); three-quarter backs, LI. Wiltshire, captain (Cardiff), J. R. Thomas (Newport), D. Rees (Llwynypia), and Winstone (Cardiff); half backs, P. Magg-s (Cardiff) and Hayman (Car- diff); forwards, D. Bowen(LIanelly),J.Vaughan (Cardiff), J. Evans (Neath), B. Roberts (Car diff), J. Chiles (Tenby), Cheek (Neath), W. Mor- gan (Cardiff), and Savours (Barry). The Rugby Union Committee will meet at the Angel Hotel, Cardiff, on Tuesday, October 24. The prinoipal item on the agenda will be the Cooper case. Other business is 1. To discuss the Rev. F. Marshall's article in The Rugby Referee" in this year's Athletic News Annual. 2. The granting of penalties for (a) not promptly playing the ball (b) irregular scrimmage play t(c) offside, rough, and obstruc- tive play. 3. What is the best position for a jfeferee to be in when the play is (a) near the touch line; (b) in mid-field; (c) near the goal- line (d) during a try at goal; (e) at the line out. On the same evening the East sub-committee will select the trial teams for the match at Penarth. There is to be still another change in the con- stitution of the Swansea team to play Glou- cester to-morrow. Ball is to stand down, and Charlie Tanner will take his place. It is hoped that Bancroft will be well enough to resume his position as custodian, but if he should not be able Hughes will take the journey. The Licensed Victuallers Mirror is inclined to be frivolous over our N. H. Meeting. It! says: — The Cardiff people ought to feel thankful now that the rainy reason has fairly set in to have as one of their stewards for the autumn race meeting the Mackintosh of Mackintosh. We don't know who the gentleman is, but cannot do less than offer him the com- pliments of the season. It is a. pity he could not be spared to attend the Tuesday's deluge at Gat- wick. Jem Smith has effectually silenced the big Welshman* David St. John, by talking of box- ing for nothing less than JE500, and even sug- gesting a stake of doublethat amount. This, of course, is out of the question so far as St. John is concerned, and no match, will, therefore, be ratified, a matter of disappointment to the young giant, who after his recent victories might reasonably hope to hold his own in better a .mpanythan that in which he b: a figi r ,d up o now. Apropos of boxing, I was favoured with a glimpse of Morgan Crowther's four weeks' old baby the other day. He is a second Morgan, a sturdy young rascal, and, being the first, it is quite unnecessary for me to say bosses the show down at the Neyille. When he chuckles an order everybody has to skip around lively to relieve his wants. The Treherbert first fifteen have October 28 (home) and April 14 (away) open for good teams. Apply J.

The Prime Minister says, "My opportunities of reading are now, from a variety of causes, much restricted, but I have been able to commence the work, ] and to assure myself from its narrative that i it will amply repay the time spent in its full perusal." A second edition of the book is j now called for.

Councillor Morgan Morgan, who will seek re- election in the Park Ward at the forthcoming municipal election, in reply to a letter from Mr. unlel David Shepherd, acting secretary of the Cardiff Temperance Association, announces his inten- tion to oppose the granting of the liquor licence to the Theatre Royal, stating further that his views on the drink traffic are in accord with the principle of the Government Local Bill.

A Supposed Luggage Thief. The Great Eastern, the Great Northern, the Great Western, and the' Midland Railway Companies were all represented at the Guild- ball, London, on Wednesday in order to prefer charges against a suspec-ted luggage thief named John Cowley. Cowley was first of all accused of stealing a Gladstone bag and contents, value JB5, from Liverpool-street Sta- tion. He was arrested on the 10th inst. at this station as he was walking off with a pas- senger's bag. Evidence having been given in that case, that of the ureat Northern Railway Company was gone into. Detectives on the 10th of October went to Pearce's Shaftes- bury Hotel, and in a room which the prisoner had been occupying found a brown leather port- manteau. The things were shown to the pri- soner, and he was asked how he became pos- sessed of them. He replied, Anyone can be in possesson of a bag of clothing." Further questions elicited the answer, "Oh, you know they are stolen."—Joseph E. Golden, a sea- man, gave evidence as to the loss of his bag from King's-cross Station.—Mr. Mills prose- outed on behalf of the Great Western Railway in respect of a portmanteau lost by Dr. W. L. Jones, of Merthyr, at Paddington Station on the 7th. The portmanteau was found at pri- soner's lodgings.

Before the dinner hour wi L" missed one of these, and later in the day visited the cooperage of Messrs. Ford and Co., where he found the missing cask. Prisoner had occasionally been employed at the wharf. The prisoner was seen by other witnesses rolling two casks towards the wharf, and it was proved that afterwards the petroleum appeared to have been emptied into the water and the casks sold.-The prisoner was com- mitted for trial at the assizes.

THE CHOLERA EPIDEMIC. Another Case Reported from Greenwich. f The Press Association learns that for the first time for six weeks Dr. Thorne, principal medical officer of the Local Government Board, was on Thursday enabled to state that no report of any choleraic affection had been received, and that, therefore, the usual daily bulletins as to the progress of the disease were suspended. Another woman is reported attacked with the epidemic at Greenwich, and another woman is reported dying. Meeting of Greenwich Guardians. At a meeting of the Greenwich Board of Guardians on Thursday the Chairman of the Board (Mr. Edward Smith) stated that the medical officer of the London County Council had expressed his intention to call at the houses of the friends of all these inmates who went out on Tuesday of last week, with the view to throwing further light on the origin of the outbreak. The total number attacked had been 240, and there had been only one new case since Wednesday, the cases now under treat- ment being of a slight character. Dr. Downes had impressed upon them the advisability of looking to their water supply and drainage, and they had decided to call in a competent man to bring forward a scheme for pipe drainage. Dr. Burney, the resident medical officer, stated that he had 56 women and 32 men still under treat- ment. The patients were, however, getting over their illness. The woman whose death was hourly expected ofi Wednesday was on Thursday night reported tdbe improving.

POUNDED TO A PULP. Spectators See an Old Time Prize Fight in Ohio. A Dalziel'stelegram from Lima (Ohio) says :— The most desperate prize fight ever known in the history of this State took place here on Thursday. Ike Boone and Vene Siebert were the contestants. Eight rounds were fought when the police stopped the battle. It was then found that both men's faces were pounded to a pulp, and that each of them had a broken arm. J The public is indignant.
SOCIAL AND PERSONAL Interesting Items about Interesting People. Gounod once remarked that God Save the Queen and the Marseillaise were the finest national anthems ever composed. The spot where Marshal MacMahon was wounded at half-past six in the morning on the day of Sedan is marked now with a hewn stone cross. The coffin containing the remains of the late Lord Stormont was borne to the grave at Scone Palace by sergeants of the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Highlanders, with pipers playing The Land of the Leal." Miss Rosaline Masson, who has made her first appearance as a novelist in My Poor Niece and other Stories," just issued by Mr. Fisher Unwin, is a daughter of Professor Masson, the biographer of Milton. Mr. George Grossmith, who visited Cardiff on Wednesday, did not at first "catch on in his reccnt visit to the States, as the Americans ex- pected merely a funny anecdotist of the Bill Nye order. His interviewers were extraordinary characters. One had (never heard of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas, find only wanted to hear his views on the Corbett and Mitchel] prize fight. Some time ago Colonel North gave to the Leeds Corporation the ruins of Kirkstall Abbey. The latter authority have had to divest it of much of its picturesqueness to save the struc- ture. It has had to be dismantled of its ivy, for the parasite was gradually exercising its disin- tegrating power, and some of the trees around it have had to be cut down. But beyond this nothing has been attempted in the way of resto- ration. At the London Licensing Sessions next week an application will be made by Mr. Albert Chevalier, the well-known music-hall artist and composer, and Mr. Hugh J. Didcott, the pioneer of variety entertainments, for a licence for the Trocadero. Their object (says the Daily Telegraph) is to give a very high-class amuse- ment, which will include some of the best variety turns and musical sketches, as well as other attractive novelties, and they will be assisted by some of the ablest artistes in the' musical world
SEVEN PERSONS KILLED. « Railway Smash on the Illinois Railway. A Central News telegram from New York says:—At midnight on Friday a collision occurred at Kankakee (Michigan), on the Illinois Central Railroad. Seven passengers were killed and ten injured.
The British Fleet in Italy. A Reuter's telegram from Taranto on Thurs- day says :—Admiral Sir Michael Culme Seymour gave a dinner last night on board his flagship the Sanspareil. After dinner the admiral ex- pressed his warm thanks for the cordial reception given to the British squadron, and the pleasure it afforded him to visit one of the greatest ports of Italy. He begged Admiral Corso to convey his respectful greetings to King Humbert.- Admiral Corso, in reply, said that hospi- tality, such as bad been extended to the British squadron was a duty where the Navies of two Powers united by ties of friendship were concerned. He concluded by drinking to the health of Queen Victoria and King Humbert.- On Thursday morning a deputation of the United Working Men's Association presented Admiral Seymour with the diploma appointing him an honorary member of their body.
Small-Pox at Bradford. The Press Association correspondent tele- graphs thf.t small-pox continues to spread in Bradford, as the result of the fire at the small- pox hospital at the beginning of the month. On Thursday the deputy-chairman of the sanitary committee was amongst those taken to the hospital. There are now 180 cases in the hospital, which is almost full. The corporation have issued a circular offering all doctors a fee for as many cases of vaccination as they will carry out, and have appointed two special inspectors to discover cases of small-pox, and are giving relief to the poor people who are in quarantine in their houses.

Wondering Welshmen SAW STRANGE SIGHTS IN THE STATES. One of the Members Tells the Ex periences of the Rhondda Glee Party in America. There are now nine members of Tom Stephens* party who have returned from Chicago. It will be remembered some 40 members of the choir went.out and competed there in several compe- titions. It was thought this number was very large in the first place, as the expenses incurred for travelling, Ac., swallowed up all the takings at the concerts, and left very little margin foi profit. Mr. Tom Stephens, the conductor, did the wisest thing possible when he allowed portion of the choir to return home. The re- turning members arrived at Pontypridd Station on Monday evemng. Some of those who have come home are prominent members of the choir, including-the famous Ferndale tenor One of the party furnishes us with an interesting account of their daily experiences at Chicago and surrounding districts. On the arrival of the party at Chicago they met with a jovial recep- tion by the Americans. The diary in which our informant has written his impressions gives aw illustration of the rate of travelling speed in America The party travelled bv the largest and fastest engine in the world. The total weight of the engine and train was 266 tons and the speed for a long journey was a mile in 35seo. Once the party travelled at the rate of one mile in 32sec., and they say the sensation was exhilarating. After a successful experience in Chicago the party started for Strata on Septera- wl x at ,a concert there netted £ 57. Whatever they asked for at this place was given them free of charge. The party were much struok by the tremendous dimensions of the organ at the Festival-hall, which was 38ft. in height, 25ft. in depth, and 34ft. in width, with 3 901 pipes and sixteen stops. The party next journeyed to Braceville, and after a second visit to Strata started back for South Chicago Cordial receptions followed at Evanstown and W aukigan while at Bacine £ 159 15s. clear w as made. At the conclusion of the concert at the latter place, a millionaire, named W T. Lewis, invited them to supper at his mansion, Acr nntage was taken of the invitation, and the party proceeded to Mr. Lewis's residence. Half an hour's walk brought them to what appeared to be a palace- the residence of their host. In response to a desire the party sang, "Comrades in Arms" outside, and were afterwards escorted into the mansion smoking-room. According to the diary the boys immediately produced their audheens, and commenced smoking. A gentleman came in and informed the boys they were not brought there to smoke pipes, and presented them each with a cigar. A supper of oysters and coffee was thoroughly enjoyed by the choralists. By the time the convivialities were over and they got to their hotel it W"i' two o'clock in the morning. They awoke next morning in excellent spirits and proceeded at 9.30 from Racme to Chicago, which was reached about mid-day. From the North-Western Station the party went down to the Grotto, where an engagement to sing for a week was made. Further references to the ex- periences of the party will be made in a later issue. -0'
DRANK HER VICTIM'S BLOOD. J" A Terrible Sight Witnessed In a Zoological Garden. A Dalziel's telegram from Providence (Rhode Island) says A terrific battle occurred at noon on Thursday in the zoological gardens in Roger U iJliams's park between two enormous tigers, named Prince and Princess, which are said to be the largest in the country, and among the finest specimens ever caught. Both have always been exceedingly savage, and Prince ■ has frequently attackc-d the Princess with tre- mendous fury. At noon on Thursday the male animal struck the fens ale a violent blow, which the latter returned. Both then began to hiss and growl and to walk about the cage glaring at each other. Suddenly they sprang up in the air, met five feet above the ground and fell to the floor. Then followed a furious conflict, in which the attendants were afraid to interfere. The tigers made a series of desperate plunges at each other, and tore and mangled each other's flesh in a fearful fashion. The Princess, after one of her paws had been nearly bitten off, retreated to the further end of the cage and then sprang- Upon her opponent with terrible force, knocking him over and burying her teeth in his throat. There she held him until he bled to death. She then tore hie body to pieces, and beg-an to lap up the enormous pool of blood. She finally sat down on her haunches, emitted a loud howl. and fell over senseless. The men then dragged away the remains of the dead tiger. It is be- lieved that the Princess will recover. .L
LEFT HER DESTITUTE. New York Police Listen to a Pitiful Tale from a Glasgow Wornan. A Dalziel's telegram says :—The New York police are in search of a young Scotch surgeon named Henry Lawrence, who has disappeared) leaving his young wife destitute, after securing all her money and other possessions. Lawrence a_ was married in Glasgow three weeks ago to a young woman named Minnie Johnson, and the couple arrived in New York on Friday by the White Star steamer Britannic. On the following day Lawrence disappeared, and nothing has yet been ascertained as to his whereabouts. The woman states that she was a private nurse in a hospital in Glasgow, where Lawrence, who has a brother in the Royal Scots Guards, was visiting surgeon. Since his mar- riage he has, according to his wife's statement, acted like a madman. While crossing the ocean in the steamer he separate himself from her and occupied a separate state-room. Last Saturday morning he took, she says, E42 belonging to her on the pretence that lie was about to have it exchanged for American money. She subse- quently found that he had taken with him her trunks, as well as his own. She is now awaiting money from her relatives in Glasgow to enable her to return home.
