Notes from London, ALL THE GOSSIP OF TOWN AND CLUBS. Lord Selborne's Case.—A Surprise. -Good Things.Peerlings. On the Verge of Defeat. While the tail end of questions was going out Sir Wm. Harcourt stood at the bar of the House. Cheek by jowl with him was Mr. Akers Douglas, the Tory Whip. As they stood the two antagonists chatted in the friendliest spirit. Upon Mr. Akers Douglas fell the burden of the conversation, and he sustained it merrily. Both were smiling all the time, but ultimately Mr. Douglas told y 11 something so desperately funny that the Chancellor doubled himself up in a convul- sion of mirth. Happily, the Chancellor was quickly relieved from his enjoyment by the summons of Mr. Speaker, whereupon, with dignified deliberation, he marched up to the table, and, amid cheers, presented the report of the Select Committee on Earl Selborne's case. Mr. Speaker read to the House the purport of the report, which, contrary to precedent, had been printed and circulated this morning before it had actually been presented to the House. A SURPRISE. Hardly recovered from the presentation of the report, the House was plunged into a new and thrilling surprise by the unobtru- sive uprising of Mr. Anstruther, the Liberal Unionist Whip, to move the issue of the new writ for West Edinburgh. This brought up Mr. George Curzon, who, as the leader of the eldest sons, took the opportunity of making the speech the House refused to hear on the night when the question was first raised. A fluent and lucid speaker, Mr. Curzon has no sense of humour. His seriousness was at a discount to-night, and he was heard in chilling silence, and was only cheered at those points which the House thought would tell against himself. 11 z:l Nor was tha Chancellor much happier, though he made one hit, which the House rapturously welcomed. He bluntly remarked that, although the present practice might be unprecedented, the conduct of Earl Selborne was also unprecedented. GOOD THINGS. It was reserved for Mr. S,wift MacNeill to give a fillip of gaiety to the debate when he jumped up to announce Here I am." The House gave him as hilarious a greeting as if he had been a clown in pantomime, but this was nothing to the laughter that occurred when, after describing Mr. Chamberlain as the chiefest ornament of these benches," he exclaimed, in the words of the patriarch, Joseph, my son, where art thou ?" It is true the quotation was not strictly accurate, but the House recognised the germ of a good intention. Another of Mr. MacNeill's good things was in describing himself as "a high prerogative lawyer." The House rejoiced deeply in this and made him say it again. PEERLINGS. Mr. Dalziel rushed in with a motion to adjourn the debate, which was put after a rapid fire had been exchanged between Mr. Anstruther and the Chair. The House, recognising that the motion was designed to delay the election of a Unionist member for Edinburgh, voted it down by a ponderous majority of 234. Thereafter Lord Cran- borne, our chief's eldest son, made a frankly effective confession of his position as one who sympathised with the party of eldest sons, while not in league with them. He delighted the House by deprecating the ardour of peerlings who wanted to remain in file Commons, on the ground, as he naively ut it, that the Commons is going down, while the Lords is going up. Another suc- cessful phrase was this :—" Even an eldest son has a right to know what his positien is." This was uttered during a defence of Earl Selborne's action. Sir Richard Webster, whose rising was greeted by au ignominiously futile attempt to closure the debate, ex- pounded the law and the procedure with high authority, crumpling the case of Mr. Curzon as he went along. After this the debate collapsed, and the writ was issued. ON THE VERGE OF DEFEAT. Ministers were on the verge of defeat all last niofht. Only the cha.pter of accidents saved them. The absence of the Parnellites, the obedience of the revolting Welshmen to the lash of the party Whip, and so on, saved Ministers. Their majorities were eighteen, fourteen, thirteen, ten, nine. and, ultimately, five. The effect has been demora- lising on the followers of the Government. It has revealed t'he fact. that Ministers are wholly at the mercy of the Opposition. If our men choose to whip up as they did last night and to hang on tenaciously, they would put out the Government within a week. PARSONS IN PARLIAMENT. The amendment admitting disestablished Welsh jiarsons to be eligible for election to the House of Commons was well moved by Mr. Gumming Maedona, who is himself a retired parson. He served in three different curacies, and was rector of Cheadle for eight years, and spent £ 10,000 of his own money in re- storing and beautifying the Parish Church. He married a rich wife, and. feeling a call to a political career, he took advantage of the Clergy Relief Act, which permits a clerk to discard Holy Orders, and so become eligible for a seat in Parliament. He failed to get in for Chesterfield in 1885. but won a gnat victory in the Rotherhithe Division of Southwark in 1886. DORCHESTER HOUSE. Dorchester House, whioh has been hired by the India Office for the reception of the young Afghan Prince and his suite, is the largest) private mansion in London. It is situated in Park-lane, and is not only the largest, but one of the handsomest of the many modern West End mansions. Captain Holford, who was equerry to the late Duke of Clarence, is the proud possessor of this building. He inherited it from his father, the late Mr. R. S. Holford, a very rich Gloucestershire banker, who purchased it from the fourth Marquess of Hertford. It was stated a little while ago that Captain Holford, who finds the place too large to maintain, was in negotiation to sell it for half a million sterling to a wealthy baronet, but if this were so the negotiations have fallen through. The house is admirably suited for the requirements of our coming visitor and his suite, and at few other places in town could the large entertainments be given which it is the intention of the Ameer's son to organise. GREEN CHALK. Whilst visiting at the house of a friend in Portland-place the other ni^ht I was sur- prised and pleased to come across a new kind of chalk, which. I am told. will be all the rage next billiard eeason. It is green in colour, and, as it possesses all the qualifica- tions of the ordinary carbonaceous compound, its substitution will be a matter of short duration. Playing on my host's table, I noticed that the cloth was not visibly scarred by ohalk marks, and at the end of the games the table wore the same verdant appearance as at the commencement. Such a state of things will be appreciated by every lover of the game, as few things are more annoying to a n'nver than to play on a table furred and badly scarrgd with white chalk marks.

CARDIFF SLANDER CASE. AMOUNT CLAIMED AS DAMAGES IS PUT AT £ 1,000 We are now in a position to state that the damages claimed by each of the plaintiffs (Mr C. Clarke, secretary, and Mr. W. G. Hunt, manager, to the Queen's Hotel Company, Car- diff) from Mr. W. J. Jeenes, a director of that company, is £ 1,000. It is alleged that the attacks made by the defendant upon the plaintiffs have extended over a considerable period, and that accusations of fraud and theft have been publicly made. IN e understand tha,t several professional and business men in the town will be called to give evidence.
ELECTRIC LIGHTING. PROGRESS OF THE WORK AT CATTTDIFF. The Cardiff boroujn engineer (Mr. Harpur), in a. chat with one of our representatives on • f f.ha.t satisfactory progress was being made with electric lighting in the town. There were now '60 consumers, using between 4,000 and 5,000 lampsi Fresh applications were continually coming in, and those now under consideration had reference to the lighting of the new "Western Mail" premises and the Free Juibrary. Extensions were contemplated in the direction of Roath, viz., up Newport-road and West-grove as far as Mr. Howell's new house on the corner of Richmond-road., and down Charles-street and Wellington-terrace as far as the Baths in Guildford'-oresceat. Several applications for electricity on these routes had been re- ceived, and in some cases the houses were already wired. The extensions could not, however, be made without the consent of the Board of Trade, which was now being sought. Applications had been received and houses wired in Cathedral-road, but it was not at present proposed to extend the mains, in that direction. When that would be done would depend upon the number of consumers the corporation were likely to get. At present electric energy was supplied between the hours of four in the afternoon and midnight, but, with twenty more consumers, bringing up the total to 80, energy would be suppbod throughout the 24 hours. STREET LIGHTS EXTINGUISHED. About a quarter-past ten on Monday ni¡;t every alternate lamp in the streets went out, and, as a consequence, the illuminating power in business and private houses im- proved considerably.
TRAVELLERS' EXPENSES. A WELSHMAN'S CASE AT BRAD- FORD. Messrs.

NEW EMPIRE FOR CARDIFF. COMPANY FORMED TO ACQUIRE MR. STOLL'S MUSIC-HALLS. A company is being formed, and will be adver- tised in our columns to-morrow (Thursday), which has for its purpose the making of an Empire variety theatre worthy of the size and importance of Cardiff. Mr. Moss, of Edinburgh, probably the principal of variety entertainers, has now taken up Cardiff, after having very suc- cessfully brought out the Edinburgh, Newcastle, Birmingham, and Glasgow Empires. Mr. Moss has arranged to acquire from Mr. Sfcoil the present Cardiff, Newport, and Swansea Empires, and the Panopticon, on the under- standing that Mr. Stoll acts for a term of years as managing director of a company to be called The Cardiff, Swansea, and Newport Empire Palaces (Limited)," which will acquire the premises from Mr. Moss. A strong directorate has been formed, Mr. Moss, who is the managing director of the Edinburgh, Birmingham, Sheffield, and Glasgow Empire Palaces being chairman. The Mayor of Cardiff (Alderman P. W. Carey( is another director, and Mr. Oswald Stoll will be the managing director. Mr. Thornton, of New- castle, who is the managing director of the New- castle-on-Tvne Empire Palace, and Mr. Selig Brukewich, of Cardiff, will also have seats upon the board. The capital of the company will be £ 45,000 in ordinary shares and S26,000 in first mortgage debentures. It is intended to expend out of this sum about R22,000 in the acquisition of further property, and in extensive alterations, improvements and additions to the present Empire premises at Cardiff. The prospectus, we understand, will state that,, after paying interest on debentures, the profits, according to the certificate of Messrs. W. C. Clarke and Dovey, accountants, Cardiff, and of Messrs. Carter, Gregg, and Co., accountants, Edinburgh, show a sum sufficient to pay on the balance of the purchase money over 13 per cent. The promoters state that they conidently be- lieve the increase in the size of the Cardiff premises will lead to such an in- crease of profits as will pay a dividend of at least 10 per cent. on the whole share capital of the company. It is stated that the towns of Cardiff, Newport, and Swansea are so con- veniently situated with reference to the management of a music-hall business as to enable very considerable economies to be effected when they are worked together under one management, and it is further stated that I there is no other variety theatre at any of these towns. Mr. Moss, in the prospectus, says he considers the business to be acquired by the company a most exeellent and remunerative one, and capable of extensive development. He believes that great advan- tages will accrue to the company through these undertakings being worked in conjunction with the Empire Palaces of Edinburgh, Birmingham, Newcastle, Sheffield, and Glasgow, and the theatres of South Sbields and Hartle- pool, which form what is known as the Moss and Thornton circuit. The directors and their- friends have applied for X40,000 in shares and debentures, and we understand that since the printing of the prospectus applications have been received for several thousand pounds more. We believe the £ 5 shares of the Edinburgh Empire are now worth C8 10s., and those of the 'Newcastle and Birmingham Empires L7 1011. each. With regard to the Glasgow Empire, which has just been built, and of which possession has only been taken this month, the 95 shares, of which X3 has been paid, are worth £ 4 7s. 6d. The bankers of the sompany will be the Commercial Bank of Scotland (Limited) and the County of Gloucester Bank (Limited). Cardiff. The auditors will be Messrs. W. C. Clarke and Dovey, Cardiff, and the soli- citors acting in the matter are Messrs. Vachell and Co., Cardiff, and Messrs. Menzies, Edin- burgh. Amongst the applicants for shares are some of the leading actors and variety per- formers of the day. It should be stated that the company proposes to acquire the extensive free- hold premises adjoining the Cardiff Empire, formerly the residence of Dr. Thomas Erans, with the view of approximately doubling the size of the present hall.

The Work-a-Day World WORDS OF WISDOM FOR THE WORKERS. Here are Paragraphs for the Sons of Toil to Read and Ponder Over. I have had a wailing letter from a Cardiff shop assistant about the old. old question o Ions hours. The young man is employed :t<3 aj assistant in a small shop and he asks what car be done. Briefly, I should say, nothing. Nothing will ever be done until Parliament is in a posi- tion to interfere. No doubt much good nay be done it the working; people of Cardiff could only be induced to do their shopping before seven o'clcck. It does seem strange that the very class from whom shop assistants are drawn are the chief offenders. The Board of Trade Labour Memorandum for April, issued at the end of last week, says that during the month nearly 21,000 persons were affected by changes in wag-es. Nearly 6.650 bt ilding operatives got bigger wages, out of a total of 8,500 workpeople who had their wages increased in April. This sounds pretty good, but we also learn that during that month no less than 28 disputes were necessary to bring about this bettering of the building trades' wa-g-es. The disputes in the mining industries during the same period numbered nineteen. A witness who has been giving evidence before the Unemployed Committee recently appointed bv Parliament says that if a. similar system wern employed in this country to that pursued in Belgium he thinks a oertain class of idle and worthless persons would not go to swell the ranks of the unemployed in timt-s of distress. He believes the Poor Law system would be improved if tramps were deaip with by sentencing them to pella] work. Tne idea, is, no doubt, good. but the question is, how are we to distinguish between the habitual tramp and nib e Uadesman on the tramp for work? Said a joiner to mp yesterday, "I have done many a weary day's journey and have had to Eawn and sell my tools time and again to buy read or secure my doss money. I have re- ceiver many favours from the occasional bummer, and mus,; confess t'hat I have a soft s.ide to tramps in general. There is a class, however, whom I have met in 'padding k^ns,' and even in the superior 'doss houses,' who live literally on others all their lives." That, in my opinion, is the class who deserve penal regulation. The question is, however, how can it be done? Other suggestions made to the unemployed committee on Friday last, bv Mr. Mather, M.P.. were farm training colonies for the tempo carily unemployed, and fam settle- ments to keep intelligent young labourers on the land and prevent migration to the city. Mr. Mather's idea is not merely that of an allotment system for farm labourers, but cash advances to enable them to purchase tools, ereac buildings, &c. To-day Mr. Tom Mann will deliver the presidential address to the Dock. Wharf, and General Labourers' Union Annual Con- gress. which commenced on Tuesday at Gla^ cester. He will take for his subject. "Tradee Unionism." The address will be followed by a large open-air meeting. Mr. Ben Til let* will also be present. A most interesting demonstration and one that is likely to nanise some commotion will take place to-morrow (Thursday) in London. The Lon- don Cab-drivers' Trade Union are going to make a protest against Mr. Asquith's attitude towards them on a point under dispute. A procession composed entirely of hansom :uid four-wheeled cabs, to the expected number of 6,000, will assemble on the Thames Embankment, and drive thence to Hyde Park Corner in the form of a procession. Another demonstration is to be held on Sunday in Hyde Park. The complaint of the men is that in certain, railway stations large cab proprietors have secured the sole rights from the company of allowing their cabs to stand there for hire, to the exclusion of all others. In other railway stations a cabby lia., to pay from a penny time before being allowed to stand on the station stand. This is a great hardship to the men, because, unlike the custom in provincial towni, the men hire their cabs by the day. and to all intents and purixises act as their own masters. Overtures have been made to Mr. Asquith. ttio Home Secretary, to secure his interference, but he takes up a neutral position in the matter, hence the demonstrations. Mr. Charles Booth, whose writings some two years ago will be remembered in connection with the question of compulsory national 111- surance when the subject was being "boomed" in Parliament, and when a Committee. I believe, was appointed to investigate the question, lias in the press just now for early publica- tion a new volume on "Life and Labour. One of the most interesting chapters is one which deals with the history of costermon- gers, based on data collected and arranged by Mr. Harold Hardy. Mr. Hardy has also been commissioned by Mr Bocth to colleot information and report on the conditions of labour, including the average rate of wages, in the various industries of aerated and mineral waters, and of spices, vinegar, and other condiments. The Taff Vale Railway dispute threatens to assume serious proportions. Failing the' withdrawal of the notices to certain em- ployes by next Tuesday, it seems likely that we shall have a strike. A railway strike is a serious thing, a.nd is attended by great risk to the general public through the amateurish- ness of the substitutes for the strikers, not to mention in many instances the complete stoppage of traffic. I have a lively recollec- tion of the last great railway strike in the North. 1 was fairly, in the midst of it, and I can mention one thing which must appear strange to general readers, viz., that some of the best subscribers to the strike fund were amongst those who were seriously in- convenienced by it. The strikers have *11 my sympathy in any case. Talking about strikes makes me wonder whaii has become of Mr. James Ta-it, the organiser of -the last great railway strike, and. until some' time ago, assistant secretary to Mr. Harford, of the amalgamated society. Mr. Tait was at one time a town councillor of Glasgow, a mem- ber of the Royal Commission on Labour, and generally looked upon as one of the coming young men of this decade. The last time I met him was in the House of Commons lobby. Since then I believe he has turned his attention and abilities to commercial travelling. I suppose if the Taff Vale Railway fitrike ocf-urs we shall have Mr. John Burns, M.P.. down here. Honest John is getting more sta.id since he has come under the care of the Liberal pariy whips in the House of Commons. His pet aversion is Mr. Keir Hardie, and there is every reason to believe that the feeling is entirely reciprocated. Mr. Burns has been a great factor in strikes during the last ten years, but I am afraid his star of popularity has set, A correspondent, who signs himself Working Man," writes" I have been expecting for several days past to see some reference in the 'Evening Express' to a revolt which has taken plase in the ranks of Labour representation in the Barry district. As the result of the district council election in November last, three nominees of the Trader Council and Labour Electoral Association were returned, and these councillors have since been more or less under the direction of the organi- sations named. One of the councillors, how- ever, possessing, apparently, some of the spirit of the 'I. L. P. has, it is understood, re- volted, and, rather than be under the dictates of the Labour party, has determined to apply for the Chiltern Hundreds of the district coun- cil. and will attend no more meetings of this body. It will be interesting, therefore, to watch later developments of this noteworthy episode." TRADES UNIONIST.
