THE ABERTHA W PEBBLE LIMEWORKS, ABERTHAW, NEAR COWBBIDGE. GLAMORGANSHIRE. MR. J. E. GUNN is in receipt of instructions from the Debenture Holders to SELL by AUCTION, at the ROYAL HOTEL, CARDIFF, on THURSDAY, THE 11TH DAY OF APRIL, 1895, at Three o'clock in the Afternoon, all that IMPORTANT AND VALUABLE PROPERTY Known as THE AJBERTHAW PEBBLE LIME WORKS, Together with the Whole of the MODERN MACHINERY, FIXED AND LOOSE PLANT, &c., With the right to get from the Beach forming part of the Fonmon Estate, and from that portion of the Beach held by O. H. Jones, Esq., under a lease from the Board of Trade, as great a quantity of Pebbles as may be required, which PRACTICALLY GIVES THE PUBCHASEB THE MONOPOLY of what is believed to be THE FINEST LIME IN THE WORLD, The whole of which will be Sold in One Lot as a Going Concern. The Plant and Machinery are of the most modern construction, are in good working order, and the MANUFACTURE OF PORTLAND CEMENT could be carried on at a small cost, suitable clay being obtained in the immediate neighbourhood. There is COMMUNICATION DIRECT FROM THE WORKS TO THE RIVER, which enables small cargoes to be shipped at a trifling cost. THE COWBBIDGE AND ABEBTHAW BAIL- WAY has a siding running direct into tk works, which are situate within a short distance of the station. The VALE OF GLAMORGAN RAILWAY passes within a few yards of the property, giving facilities for the carriage of the lime to all parts of Wales, and which hitherto has been found a difficulty in working the trade. The property is' held under agreement from year tj year at a rental of £4(), with a dead rent of floo, also a royalty of 8d. for every ton of lime burnt, which merges into the dead rent, with a proviso that the agreement shall not terminate unless certain events tccur. For Permission to View the Works apply to Cap tainR. M. John, Aberthaw; and for Further Par- ticulars apply to Messrs. Shirley and Sons, Solicitors, High-street, Cardiff; or to the Auctioneer, West- gate-clMmtfffE, W-eatBrifraticsot. Cardiff.■■y^na>,ir. ggtrtoants, 3Barmaiflg,&r. I SERVANTS WANTED.

Notes from London ALL THE GOSSIP OF TOWN AND CLUBS. Mr. Speaker Peel's Farewell-The Chan- cellor Speaks—And Other Leaders Follow, Mr. Speaker's last entry to the House was by way of double entry. There was a Royal Commission in the Lords to transform BiHs into Acts by the operation of the Royal Assent. Mr. Speaker, therefore, after making an informal forst entry into the House, had to progress in State to the Lords, and so return to his own House to make a second en/try. All the time the House had been iilling till there was barely standing room. The galleries were not full, and the tout ensemble was not as impressive as yesterday. Mr. Balfour came in tast. Baron Henry de Worms, who has not been seen in the House lately, re-appeared on the Front Opposition Bench, looking rathter fill, but. gay, with a large orchid in his button hole. Every ear was craned to attention when Mr. Speaker called on the Chancellor of the Exchequer. This was a false alarm. So was the motion that the House on its rising to-morrow do adjourn. till the 22nd. This was carried without a murmur, although, under usual circumstances, it would have afforded many members an opportunity of unburdening their minds of private grievances. THE CHANCELLOR SPEAKS. At the second time of asking, the Chan- cellor plunged into his task in his most lugubrious, funereal style, and by this I mean his melancholy intoning. It is more sadden- ing than Gregorian music. His manner spoilt the jnatier of his speech. It wis mainly a personal tribute, very earnest and true, without being fulsome, and appealing strongly to the sense of the House, which now and then found vent in a loud, deep roar of cheering. The Chancellor's voice trembled as he ceme to the end, and the Speaker was moved. All the time he sat still, resting his face on his right hand, and holding the. notioe-paper in his left hand. But ho was so moved that it was only in the faintest whisper he called on "Mr. Balfour. when Chancellor sat down. AND OTHER LEADERS FOLLOW. Mr. Balfour's bright, clear voice and manly, earnest expression were a sensible relief from the Chanoellor's dirge-like chant. Mr. Balfour's speech was the best and clearest. In the fore part historical, it went off in a graceful and glowing personal testimony, which the House eagerly accepted. The very best point made in the whole discussion was Mr. Balfour's brilliant and lucid exposition of the Speaker's profound influence over the House as being an inborn manner and an incommunicable gift. Mr. Justin M'Carthy did as well as could have been expected from one accustomed to make pretty phrases. There was a pleasant musical ring about such phrases as that in which he represented the Speaker as adding new lustre to an illustrious name. Mr. Chamber- lain was polished, but barely rose above commonplace. When Mr. John Redmond rose to speak on behalf of what he modestly described as the smallest group in the House his deprecatory manner strangely ,affected the House, which has a well-grounded respect for the Parnellite leader. There was a hearty burst of oheering, which surprised and gratified Mr. Redmond, and sharpened one of his best points, namely, his declaration that a powetful and impartial Speaker was the natural protector of minorities. Five leaders had spoken, on behalf of five parties. This ought to have been sufficient, but Mr. Naoroji chose to plunge from the sublime to the ridiculous by jumping up to offer a few remarks of his own. MR. PEEL'S LAST SPEECH. The Speaker, not being able to speak after the motion was passed, returned thanks to the House before putting the question. He stood at his full height, one hand resting on the elbow of the chair, and the other hold- ing the notice-paper in front of him. His speech-brief, dignified, and eloquent—was delivered in a firm, calm voice, rising and falling in the pure cadence of perfect oratory. All members had uncovered at the rising of Mr. Speaker. To my mind, the most im- pressive incident occurred when Mr. Speaker, having concluded his five minutes' oration, put the question. There was a loud, thril- ling, deep shout of "Aye." Never have I heard the "Aye" so distinct and unanimous. It was like a single note from a great choir. When the "Noes" should have come in there was an instant of that perfect silence in which, as the saying goes, one might have heard a pin drop. This was exquisite; it was dramatic.; it was poetical; it was more eloquent than any verbal tribute had been. The only thing needed to complete the picturesqueness of the situation at this point was that Mr. Speaker should have gathered his robes round him and have slowly walked out of the House. This would have been the truly dramatic finale. It was not to be. He had promised to stay out the sitting. Faithful to the last, he remained in the chair till the House rose. But he was not with- out comfort, for there was an unbroken succession of members to take an affectionate leave of him, and it was touching indeed to behold sometimes the lingering fondness with which he exchanged the parting grip with some of his dearest friends. MR. PEEL'8 ELECTION TO THE CHAIR. Mr. Arthur Peel has been elected Speaker of the House of Commons four times. The first occasion was in the year 1884, when he was chosen to succeed Speaker Brand, on the motion of Mr. Whitbread, who will to- morrow move the election of his successor. The seconder in 1884 was Mr. Rathbone. It is a coincidence, perhaps rather more, that Mr. Peel's speech on election was of the same length as his valedictory speech yester- day. In 1884 Mr. Peel said he felt he owed his election largely to the fact that he was the son of a statesman whose history and laboois were identified with the story of the debates of the House, and whose public services were indelibly written in the records of his country, and whose name was warmly cherished in a multitude of British homes. He knew, however, that it was very neces- sary he should lay aside all that was per- sonal, all that was party, and all that savoured of political predilection, and to subordinate everything to the great interests of the House at large. On three other occa- sions Mr. Peel was elected to the chair— for the second time after he had been elected by the united boroughs of Leamington and Warwick on June 12, 1886; for the third time on August ii, 1886, and for the fourth time on August 4, 1892. LORD SALISBURY AND THE WELSHMEN. Lord Salisbury's letter in the Times" declaring that the House of Lords only accepted Irish Disestablishment because the Bill was supported by all the divisions of the United Kingdom has destroyed the Liberator hopes of Welsh members. They now recognise that it will be impossible to carry the Disestablishment Bill unless there are majorities for it in England and Scot- land. This is seen to be impossible. They admit there is no chance of compromise with the Lords and the Bill is in vain. This feeling caused the meagre attendance at the meeting of Welsh members.

GLAMORGAN RECORDS. INTERESTING PUBLICATION BY MISS TALBOT, SCAR GAM ABBEY. As is well known to historians, Margam was, like Neath Abbey, down to the dissolution of the monasteries a remarkable institution. Its possessions we-e immense, the gifts of pious donors. Its landed estates reached almost con- tinuously from Aberdar to Margam. Nearly the whole of the parish of Llanwyno belonged to the abbey, having been presented to it by a Glamorgan chieftain named Caradawg ap Merlais, who seems, judging by his surname, to have dwelt at Merlais, now called Morlais, Castle. The gift was to the Cistercian Order of Monks, and bequeathed through the hands of Brother Meiler and his brethren of Pendar Hermitage. It is not known where is the exact spot that Hermitage stood, but it is conjectured it was somewhere near theDar River, after which Aber Dar is named. It appears the locality is now called Cevn Pen'ar. Brother Meiler was, judging again by the name, a Welsh preacher of thrilling eloquence, and that he fully persuaded both high and low that nothing was more pleasing to. Heaven than making presents of land to the Cistercians, and, through them, to the poor. A vast collection of the old title deeds of the farms, &c., given to Margam Abbey have been preserved, with the great seals attached, numbering upwards of 500. Those deeds illustrate the history ef Margam Abbey, Neath Abbey, Ogmore Priory, or, as it is otherwise called, Ewenny Priory, and Tewkesbury Abbey and their vast estates in Glamorgan and Lincolnshire. The records extend back to the eleventh century. Miss Talbot has placed the whole collection in the hands of Mr. Walter de Gray Birch, F.S.A., of the British Museum. The oollection has just been printed in English and privately issued in two volumes of 8vo., 182 and 117 pages each. Miss Talbot has honoured Morien with two presentation copies.

-?- -? WHO IS STANLEY? LETTER FROM MR. T. GEORGE, FENTSESELLY. Mr. Thos. George, Pentreselly, near Bbocath, writes to the "South W:Jes Daily Poat";— remarks iu the Western Mail' of the 29th ult. regarding the antece- dents and blood relatione of Mr. H. M. Stanley are entirely misleading and erroneous. Most emphatically I assert that Mr. Stanley is not John Roland, of North Wales. 'Morien,' a few years ago, made a remarkable expedi- tion to North Wales in search of the parents of the great African explorer, and m the attempt he has been 'scandalously hoaxed' by the inha- bitants of 'Gwynedd.' Mr. H. M. Stanley is no more John Roland, grandson of Moses Parry, Castle Hill, Denbigh, and grandson of John Roland, Llys Farm, than he is grandson of 'Tippoo Tib.' Knowing Mr. Howell Jones, alias H. M. Stanley, the great African ex- plorer, the discoverer of Dr. Livings-tone, and the founder of the Congo Free State, siaoe childhood (we having bten playmates), I flatter myself I am in a better position, and possess better advantages than 'Slorien' to say who Mr. Stanley is. I build my arguments (which are inexorable) on 'facts' and personal expe- riences—'Morien' builds on hearsay —I build on a rock (Truth)—'Morien' in sand. 'Morien' states in the 'Western Mail' of the above date that Mr. Thomas Gee, of Denbigh, holds a cer- tain letter from Mr. Stanley admitting he is John Roland. 'Morien' writes in the 'Wes- tern Mhil' of March 25, 1886, that the letter was with Mr. Griffiths, correspondent of the Banner of Wales, who at that time resided in London, and was visiting Mr. Stanley at the Langham Hotel. Would 'Morien' be sur- prised to hear that Mr. Griffiths could never be persuaded to believe that Mr. H. M. Stanley was John Roland, of Denbigh? Would he be surprised to hear that a letter lies on the table before me this moment written by Mr. Griffiths to a certain friend in 1874, and stating he is not in a. position to say that Mr. H. M. Stanley is John Roland, of Denbigh, and adds. 'Although having had several interviews with Mr. Stanley, he' would not like to assert he was John Roland, of Denbigh'? In conclud- ing, I beg to say that the 'veil' ie about to be drawn, so- 'Be self-possessed, let reason clear the way. Stern 'Time' has brought its long-expected day, Revealing truths unknown.
ASLEEP FOR A WEEK. THE HYPNOTISED CARDIFFIAN AT THE PANOPTICON. The excitement created by the announcement that a local man would be hypnotised at the Panopticon, Cardiff, by Professor Morritt, or, in other words, put into a trance, which will last for six days and five nights, can hardly be over-estimated. The crowds of persons who ei deavoured to obtain admission on Tuesday amply justifies the assertion, and the fact that both medicos and laymen went away completely satisfied is. it is argued, ta strong, if not a com- plete answer to the charges that have been made during the past two weeks. From the tune that the man, John Jones, carpenter, was placed under the influence nf Professor Morritt until the moment of going to press, he has, in the opinion of medioal men and other experts who have examined him, not deteriorated in the slightest degree from the physical conditions under which he was hypnotised. Pro- fessional men visited him three tiw.s on Tuesday, and on each occa- sion took his temperature, pulse, amd also starched for any variations that might be discovered in the heart beatings. These were all found satisfactory in the extreme. As a matter of fact, the pulse and temperature are more nearly normal now than they were at the time of his being placed in a trance. On T,:e«sday afternoon his ife and child visited him, and, having due regard to the unique condi- tions under which they saw husband and father, expressed themselves perfectly satis- fied that he, as well as they could judge, was in his usual state of health. Besides these, hundreds of neighbours from Canton, fellow- workmen, and others who have been acquainted with Jones from his boyhood (he being a native of the town), appeared at the Panopticon to doubt or accept the peculiar condition of their friend, and all went away convinced that there was nothing either inju- rious or deceptive connected with the experi- ment. Jones will be awakened on Situ.day night. Apact from this experiment, it may be pointed out that one subject, either local otr otherwise, will be hypnotised each day during the week, ex- cept Good' Friday, at three o'clock in the after- noon, and will be awakened at ten in the even- ing. It should be remembered t-hliat 0-i Good Friday the Panopticon will be open to the public from ten a.m. ito ten p.m., to allow everyone to have an opportunity of inspecting the man in a trance.

HadBuriedHimYearsAgo # MOTHER AND SON COME FACE TO FACE. A Strange Story of Grave Thieves Di"; covery and an Act to Hide Their Guilt. A mysterious affair is being investigated by* the Belgrade police. Seven years ago ft, fruiterer, named Spasoje Georgievitch, lost his little boy, who was then six years old. Accord- ing to a widespread custom in Servia specimens of all the silver coins in toirculation at the time were placed in the child's coffin. It appears. that the gaavediggers, being aware of this practice, were in the habit of re-opening graves and stealing the money, and in the present ea. they were startled, while at their work, by the supposed dead child moving one of its arms directly the lid of the coffin was taken off. They decided1 (says a Vienna correspondent) to carry the body, not to the parents, but to the nearest doctor, who happened to be the same that had attended the child and certified the death. The doctor, who was greatly taken aback, shrank from publishing his incompetence,. and the gravediggers were equally unwilling to confetes their theftj?. Consequently, all parties agreed' to say nothing about the affair, and the doctor undertook to place the boy at his own expense with some country people at a distance from Belgrade. The story runs th*t, in the coarse of time, this family removed to Belgrade, and the boy, who is now thirteen years old, and who is known as Milorad, was apprenticed, not long ago, m that city. One day he was sent out to buy some fruit, and chatioe, with a proper sense of dramatic fitness, decreed that ha should enter the shop of Madame Georgie- vitch. His striking likeness to her supposed dead son attracted her attention, and a clOlSef examination showed that he, too, had two front teeth that were twisted, a scar on the forehead caused by a fall, and a mole at the • back of the right ear. Milorad, on his part, also, was under the impression that he had, j seeu the woman before, and, being questionedi; Æ about what he remembered, he said that two jfc men had taken him out of a hole in the ? ground, and carried him during the night "to a place where a gentleman was kind to him," and that hence he was taken taoiaewhere else., He remembered the names of his brothers, and re-called some other details which appa- rently did away with all doubt. Inquiries; were at onoe set on foot, with results which; seemed to coroborate the theory of the! Georgievitchs. The grave was opened, and; the skeleton found in it is stated to be that, of a child under six years of age, and of smaller build than their son. The doctor andf the supposed foster parents of the boy Milo- rad deny, however, all knowledge of the affair, while no one knows what has beoomM of the two gravediggers. The decision will,< to a large extent, rest with the medicals- report as to whether the woman who claims to be Milorad's mother has ever actually borne a child. Meanwhile, the facts are being published, in order that anyone who knows anything in connection with the affair may come forward. Up to the present thft evidence on either side is very scanty.
COUNCILLOR BEAVAN. OFFERS SOME ADVICE TO THE CARDIFF COUNCIL. To the Editor of the "Evening Express." Sir,-1 know you are always generous to thcee, who think they have a grievance. I am not; going to retiect on the mayor for preventing* my speaking yesterday, though he did so prior to obtaining a resolution trom the council closing the particular discussion I wished to take part in; but, as my mouth was olosed in the council, I am driven to seek permission to make my voice heard through your columns. I was greatly amusea yesterday at the alarm manifested in the oouncil thai a district rate of Is. 8cL in the £ and a borough rate of over 5d. jfr in the £ had become necessary. The various committees, and the council as a whole, have been most reckless in incurring expenditure, and it is only when confronted with the. natural result of their wild extravagance thatA they pull up and vie with each other in wish- ing to pose as heaven-sent economists. Again and again the council has been warned by the tinance committee as to where their thought- less voting of public money would lead to, but they have been laughed at for their pains. Now. because the finance committee have said that if there is to be no cooking of the accounts, if the excess of former estimates is to be met and a clean sheet secured, if the moneys already voted (often, as I verily believe, without the minutes referriug to Si tin having been read), and if the half-year is to bear its fair and legitimate portion of expenditure, then it would appear a Is. 8d. and a 5d. rate respectively are necessary; because, I say, the finance committee have said this, severa.i most clever gentlemen (as the result, I hear, of a private meeting or two) have suggested that the finance committee do not know what they are about—they are practically a set of '"fossils," of "imbeciles," is their respectable insinuation, and, there- j fore, these accounts should go to some stronger, ,some special committee, tor investigation. Was I not right, Mr. Editor, in throwing back "the base insinuation" yesterday with indignation, and disgust? My advice to the council is "Xiook out in time"; do not rush into wanton expen- diture, but, if you do, at least be men and face the result when it forces itself before you in the shape of an increased rate. One thing I do not hbsitate to admit, as a member of the finance committee; it is this:—At their meet- ings from time to time they have not had time j to go into detail as to the items, one by one, included in the estimates. That, instead of; being the work of an nour every six months, -P would be the work of days. The represent a- « tives of departments would need to be present. and much evidence would be necessary, none of which (in detail) has been called for in the past. For that reason, and because after the finance committee meeting of last week I spent many hours in comparing the estimates of this 'half-year with those of the corresponding halt of 1894, I was prepared yesterday (had I been allowed to speak) to suggest that this half- year's estimates should be sent back to the finance committee for closer examination, although that committee was assured by re- sponsible officials that if the half-year is to be allowed to bear only ordinary expenditure and expenditure specially voted (and in that sense fairly belonging to it), then the suggested rates cannot be reduoed. I will never myself be a party to the "belittling" of any committee of which I am a member. I will not directly or indirectly consent to the innuendo that the finance committee is not capable of its duty. If the deputy-chairman thinks it a graceful thing "to plead guilty to that soft impeach- ment," all I can say is he will not earn the, slightest appreciation or respect from me for the act. Meanwhile the lesson to be urged. upon the council is, be careful of your expendi- ture. don't incur a single unnecessary item, "look before you leap," but don't descend to the pettishness of children, and cry out when your spending comes back to you under tha form of a "hideous spectre" in the way of an inflated rate.—I am, &c., Cardiff, April 9. F. J. BEAVAN.
