BEFORE we came to Cardiff most of the JD trade was done in inferior types of Tea. Cardiff was known to The Trade" as a market for common Tea. This is not very flattering. but it is true, nevertheless. CONNOISSEURS complained there was no good Tea to be had, but the public generally were content to drink the medium and common grades then offered. They could Dot at first appreciate tho Hicrh-Class Tea. which we were introducing to their notice. ALL THIS, however, is now changed, for by selling the finest growths of India and Ceylon at reasonable profits we have in a short time completely revolutionised the Tea trade in this town and district. Is it not so ? THE NUMEROUS Testimonials we yet un- JL sought from our Customers, added to our constantly increasing turuoTer, lead us to conclude that our present trade, large as it is, is still in its infancy. WITH THIS matter we would call your attention to the unapproachable value of our five specialities in Tea, at 1s. 4d., 1s. 6d., 1s, 8d(J 1s, 10d" and 2s. PER POUND.

THE WINDSOR DOCK BILL. The feeling was generally expressed at yes- terday's meeting of the Cardiff Couno 1 that the Parliamentary committee would do all thev jould to support the Windsor Dock BUI, one )f the six Bills being promoted by local com- panies in which the corporation has an inre- rest. Wh«n it- «s remembered -thai the Windsor Dock undertaking will mean the expendituie of something like 2700,000 in the town, it is is well that all municipal local suppers should be given to the scheme. m far as xs compatible with the present "interests of the ratepayers. 3orne modifications in the plaus of the com- pany wilit have to be made, however, before the corporation will be at liberty lo leiid its full md unqualified suppori to the Bill. Fer in- stance, it is desired by the council that such II. clause should be inserted as shall enable them to acquire land in the neighbourhood of the new Windsor Dock for the construction of a new outfall sewer and sew^e reservoir, where the sewage can be allowed to accumulate when. the tide is up, and after- wards pumped out by machinery. Further, the council will require an undertaking by the Windsor Dock Company that they will not oppose the corporation of Cardiff in any appli- cation which may be Tmde either for a Provi- sional Order or Act of Parliament enabiing it to construct this new sewer These points though necessary to be insisted upon, are, how- ever, of minor importance as compared with the opposition which will be directed against that clause in the company's Bill, which pro- vides for the levying of a toll of twopence per head upon all passengers embarking or landing a,t their docks, or any of their wharves or jetties. This clause, as far 8,8 the town of Car- diff is concerned, is one of the most objection- able features of the Bill, and it is hoped that it will encounter the sturdiest opposition on the part of the council- e trust th-it the cor- poraticn will be inflexible in main taming the inteiests of the town, in thIS and other Bills. Excellent counsel have been retained in Mr. Pembroke Stephens, Q.C., and Mr. C. J. Jackson, and the Parliamentary com- mittee ha.v9 a firm position to stand upon in fighting for the town's rights. L"t there be no hole and corner discussions over the matter, no private meetings and conferences, no parleys with, the opposi- tion when, perhaps, the town's representatives are destitute of the aid of their legal advisers, and are liable to be trapped by the plausible representations made by shrewd and subtle ad- vocates of the claims of the other dele. With grave and important interests at, stake the mem- bers of the council cannot aff'ord to seek the distrust and suspicion of "èbe ratepayers by bar parlour gatherings, and no definite action should èt) taken without first consulting their own rt^i*.fe'«/j! eounsel. The incongruity of the kid .a fe- a £ 'Fgayla»j. j* an instance of -?.?- .?- the way in which the council has allowed the handkerchief to be tied over its eyes. A few members of the council were talked over by the Taff Vale representatives into allowing a loadway of thirty live feet in width to be made, instead of fifty feet, a.?] had been desired. The bridge at that place is fifty feet wide, thus standing out fifteen feet beyond the road line, a state of things which will have to lie remedied at no small cost. It should be borne in mind that railways and docks are capitalist monopolies, constituted, not for the conve- nience of the public, but to make money for the shareholders, and it behoves the council, who have solely the ratepayers' interests to consider to see that it is not overcome and entrapped by the wheedling blandishments of the representatives of any board of directors.

LONDOX PRESS OPINIONS. The Hew Parliament. Di-cuseing the probabilities of the session which opens to-day the "Times" savs the im- possibility of reckoning on Irish Roman. Catho- lic votes will probably deter the Opposition from adopting aggressive tactics in regard to the voluntary schools, at least until the Minis- terial measure has been, introduced. Nor is it more likely t'hat tlfe other Bills enumerated in the Speech from the Throne will afford any promising ground for an amendment to the Address. It will be easier to indulge 'in criti- cism of the foreign and Colonial policy of the Guveremettit. At tho same timie, prudence will combine with patriotism in counselling meive. Tc attack the Government for failing to secure adequate redre-s for the wrongs of the Armenians would lay the members of the late Ministry open to a crushing retort. There is reston to hope that, in spite of some indiscreet utterances on Scottish platforms, there is public spirit enough among the Radical leaders to prevent them from compromising the interests of their country by attacking the Government for declining to enter inlto an unlimited arbi. tration on the Venezuelan question. The "Daily News" says:—The deplorable and humiliating subject of Armenia will be mentiored m the Queen's Speech Li1 a vague and gingerly manner. Whila the Queen has been advised to lament, as a matter of cour-e, and to describe in a euphemistic periphrasis the murder and torture of h:3 Christian sub- jects by the Sultan, official satisfaction with the promised reforms is likely to be pu-, in her Majesty's mouth. The Liberal Leader., will lose a great and irrevocable opportunity if they fail to iiijprtss upon Parliament and the comury the extent io which our national obligations have been neglected 'by those responsible for dieir discharge. The "Post" says:—The mere mention of so many subiects of burning inter?sc in the Speech proves hoiw heavy is. the additional burden .suddenly cast upon the sho'jldera or he:- Ma •jesiy's advisers, a.nd calls fcr the exercise and display of the same patriotic spirit In Parliament as th.tt which Ii.v; recently been exhibited from one end of the iimy.re cc the other. \Ve are a pat er.c and law-abiding people, ready to do justice to the views oi others as well as our own (<»ays the "Telegraph'1); we recognise io ihe full the, wisdom and clemency with which President Krugev has treated his captives and tne friendliness lie has exhibited to this country: and we shail await the inti- mate settlement, both in the case of the Trans- vaal and in -ch» dispute with Venezuela, with complete coniidenc-e in her Majesty"s Admini- stration. The "Chronicle" believe that in its hour of adversity the Liberal party will dignify itself by association and sympathy with the best tra- ditions of our race, and the finest memorials of its own contributions to English statesman- ship. in domestic qrestions we trust that a vigilant eye will be kept on the educational, the labour, the social le;P81ation, of whieh a vague adumbration has already been made. We may have to hold cur own against reaction. Let us see that we de it with spirit, with know- ledge cf our principles, with the sincere belief that we are working not for interests, or ca-ates—civil or ecclesiastical—but for the coun- try, for the nerve and sinew of the Englisii nation. South Africa. What we revere ourselves, in other words, we must-respect in others (says the "Daily News. ) If Sir. Chamberlain can only succeed in con- vincing President Kvtiger that his Hag- \1.1 ever be respected by us. half the difficulties of the situation will be removed at once. The "Standard" observes that hitherto the commonest necessaries of life at Salisbury (the capital of Rhodesia) have been at something more than famine prices, and the influx of settlers and the development of the country have been seriously retarded, since men of small capital have. reasonably enough, hesi- tatpd before the prospect of having to spend it all upon meat, drink, and lodging T.ti the course of twelve months these difficulties if not entirely removed, will be so much modified that we may expect to see a moid improve- ment in the prospects of Rhodesia--the snore especially if Mr. Rhodes really sticks to his present resolution to devote his restless energy and his talent for administration to the deve- lopment of the great African estate which already owes so much to his foresight -ad vigour. Cre Queen, One Flag. In the interesting interview w'«icl. we ("Daily Graphic") publish in another cd-tmn the Com- mander-in-Chief expresses strong approval of the idea of a Colonial Army Corps recently put forward by c.iir corespondent, "Splendid Isolation," but doubts whether the Colonies could afford to furnish men enough. On such a matter the opinion of Lord Wo!sel°y, of course, carries the greatest weight, but if his objection should be fatal to our correspondent's scheme, it cr Iv clears the ground for other ccncrete proposals. Our object in giving prc-mi- ner^e to the scheme wai to bring home to the p'1 f:c both in Great Britain and in the Colonies thf vital iiunortanco of linking all the parts of the Empire together in one scheme of com- mon defence. What tbait jichame, should be >.»nly full discussion cAn .-how. It need not I necessarily be identical in all its details in all parts of the Empire. Local varieties which do not conflict with the common object re ay be a source of strength rather than weakness.

Spink and Spink. tho rautical gymnastio drolls, who created such a furore in Paris, had a benefit, bui the atten- dance was somewhat meagre. The two gym- nastic eccentrics, however, were well received. Much laughter was caused by the impromptu gagging on the part of the comedians, and some of the principal dan,ce;; were very lively. This evening Mr. W. Cromwell, whose .co?ter song has been one of iho features of the pan- tomime. will take a benefit, and on Thursday evening Mr. Kennedy AilEP-the one and only Kennedy—will do likewise.

The extraordinary entertainmenfc provided by Herr Rousbr and Maud Trying overshadows every other attraction at the Empire this week, and the crowded audiences went away marvel- ling. Th" entertainment provided by the two capable artistes named demonstrates ^n a striking manner the uses to which electricity can be applied m the cause of mus e, and thi" great novelty being coupled with an excellent variety programme, the crowded attendance »n Monday evening will, we doubt not, be main- tained throughout the week.

TRAGIC DEATH AT LLANELLY. A VERDICT OF MISADVENTURE. At the Thomas Arms Hotel, Llanelly, on Monday, an inquest was held before the deputy- coroner (Mr. Henry W. Spowart.) relative to the death of Robert Margrave, a veterinary surgeon, who died the previous afternoon.—Evi- dence was given by Henry Harries, a groom in tha employ of the deceased, to the effect that Mr. Margrave was seized with an epileptic fit in July la-c t, since which time his health had been somewhat indifferent. On Friday and Saturday last he seemed somewhat strange in his manner, and suffered from sleeplessness. On .Sunday morning he appeared to be very down-hearted, and was sick after breakfast. He went into his surgery aibout 2.30 on Sunday afternoon, and witness followed him, but the deceased had! taken a quantity of tincture of opium. Upon discovering this witness ran to ir. Kvans. and brought him back with him.— Dr. Evan Evans deposed that he knew the de- ceased had suffered from insomnia, and at times he became very excited. He was called in to see the deceased on Sunday afternoon, and was toYl hv li,m, "1 have taken an overdose of opium. Witness a.t once took him out to the back of the house, and gave him hot •vf.te?

From the marks on the bottle, it wtwdd appear that the deceased 'had taken about 24 time-! the maxi- mum dose.—After a brief summing up, the jvry returned a verdict of deatn from misad- venture, arising from an overdose of opium.

THE BLIND NEWSVENDOR OF SWANSEA. One of the most marvellous cures of rhcu- mati-m by the u:,e of Mr. Phillips's appliances for the cure of this terrible complaint, which is laying prostrate tiioueands of human beings at the present lime, has just been brought under our notice. Rather moce than six months ago a gentleman residing in Swansea who had known the "blind newsvendor" for years was struck with pity for him on seeing him one day in the streets of Swansea last summer almost a helpless cripple. There is scarcely a resident who does not know the blind man David Richards, who 111 a very marvellous manner delivers the news- papers at the houses of certain residents, and, though these Kubseribers#»:e sometimes far apart and at others close together, he rarely makes mistakes, and crosses the busiest thoroughfares without accident. Finding him laid up at last and unable to continue his round, this gentleman, having heard .Jf wonderful cures effected by the use of Mr. Phillips's rheumatic appliances wrote to Mr. Phillips laid the case of the blind man before him, and asked him if he would kindlv supply a pair of socks to him gratuitously. This was done, and in November last a letter was re- ceived from a friend of the blind man, stating that he was ire,proving, but that. owing to his boots being small, he was unable to wear the socks except when wearing slippers at home, but that steps were being taken to provide him with a. larger pair of hoots. so as to give the socks a fair trial. A few days since one of our correspondents writes as follows: — "One of the best known and most fnmiliar figure* in the streets of Swansea i" that of David of 50, Swan- sea. the blind vendor if newppan'Ts. David.' as he is called, has one or the hircrest- rounds' in the town, but he has bon of late a vrpat sufferer from ^heuirvatism and kindred ailments, induced bv hi" necessary exposure to '.venther. To David the «ooks of Mr. Phil Phillips have npparently been an untold bles- sing. In to an inquiry, he said ho received a pair about six months ago, \'1pd had found wonderful relief. He was now able to IIPt :1hot1t his work again, after being laid up nearly all la-t summer. T haVe had great benePt from them.' said he earnestly. I am sure it is owing to these seeks that T am eo well, because T have not t^Vd snvthipg else since T commenced wearing them, but pirevious to that time T bad been trying everything I pos«iblv could, without any good effect. As you know. T am out from about six a.m. till nearly ten p.m. every day. I do nine or t.n Tfitef walking at least day. and do it now with ease." This it a '•em«rkahl« ease. When the socks were applied for Richards had srvnt a- crood deal nf money, m^e than he "onId spar" hy a long wry, but nothing did him wnv good, and ho persevered in oarryintr out his rvipprs long pfter lie ought to have criven lln.

I Michael v Mdlie Lisette ? A SPORTING MATCH IX PARIS. Cannon and Pierri in Training fox. the World's Championship Con- test on Saturday. Tiq a hit early in the day to sneak of the Cardiff- N ewport liutitch, but the intere.it j>i»t now being fcaicen M prodigious. The reason is, of course, that Cardiff beat Newport on che last occasion, and then Newjiort went and defeated the invincible Llanelly fifteen. Of course, tha last-mentioned victory is in. a. measure discounted by the fiasco at Aberavon on Saturday. Still, everyone knows wliiit it neana to meet Newport on their own ground. The Cardiff committee have not as yet decided on their team probably they are waiting to see if Sweet-Escotit will be able to play. The three-quarter line, I hear, will be Huxley, Driscoll, Nicholl-i, and Jones. The only doubt seems to be about the halves. Another match on Saturday that -s also creating an immense amount of interest is that between Cannon a.nd Pierri, which is hxed to take place at the Colonial-hall, Cardiff, ai eight o'clock. The referee appointed is Pike, of Barry, champion of Wales and the West of England in the Devon and Cornwall style. Pika has been written to. and we await his acceptance of the office. That the match will be a scorcher goes without saying. In their show business both Cannon and Pierri advertise themselves as the world's Gra?co-Roman cham- pions. Thus, on the result of this matoh, depends more than the stake alone, it means the winning or losing of a professional reputa- tion—in other words, bread and cheese. That a i.errifio crowd will be in attendance there does not seem the slightest doubt, for the interest in the match is only second to that of the matter between Cardiff and Newport The Roaltb (Cardiff) Harriers held a run, Oil Saturday last from the Ship Hotel, Barry. Twenty-one members turned out, and ha.d a good 8j miles spin in chuee of W. H. Evans, G. F. Harrison, and W. Murrell. who ha.d taken the bags. Of the three packs in chane the slow and medium lost the trail after going about a mile and a half, and managed to get OIl, the scent again just in time to see the fast pack a quarter of a mile ahead. The fast pack arrived home some time in front of the others, as the mediums were hampered hy a visitor from Barry being unable to keep up. The following were the first six home:—1st, H. F.airlamb; 2nd, R. H. Edwards; 3rd, R. Arnbu.ee; 4th. E. Thomas; 5th, E. Fairlamb; 61th, J. G Coppock. Next Staurday the club hold their third han- dicap in the series, for points. The majtoh between Jimmy Michael and MdlJe. Lisette a.t the Velodrome d'Hiver on Sunday -was, says "Sport and Play," a purely sporting tone, and yet it was not, for it would require one of Sam Weller's double-million magnifying glasses to discover the slightest element of sport in the race. Michael ivm to give the lady seven kiloms. in fifty, and it W3,' stated that this would dumpel him to break the record to win. But at no moment were the records in danger of falling, a.nd Michael won by no fewer than eleven kiloms. There was au enormous cmwd of spectators who followed the match in grim silence, broken by an occasional caustic "emark from the gallery, and it was oidy the Frc-nch gallantry for the fair sex which prevented them from breaking out into an uproar. Michael lapped L'sctte every flour or five laps, and at the end everybody felt relieved. It may be taken for granted that there will be no more such exhibitions for a long time to come. Michael Ita" returned to Wales fr>r a few weeks' well-earned rest. and it is said that before comtrg back to Fiance he may ride at the Agricultural Hall. "She Wore —,—.

i Women Doctors SHALL OXE BE APPOINTED I AT CARDIFF GAOL. The Opinions of Medical Men Upon the Project for a Dual Appoint- ment at the Local Prison. Cardiff has led the way in the matter of agitating for a lady doctor at the Cardiff Gaol. Warwick is new following suit, and there is eveiy prospect that the Home Secretary will shortly have representations from many other towns in favour of the appointment of female physicians in prisons. There is even greater need. perhaps, of such an appointment' at the Cardiff workhouse, but the resignation at Car- diff Gaol gives the opportunity for a specific re- quest to be made. The activity among the local ladies interested in the matter has been re- newed, and k is trusted that such represen- tations will be made to the Home Secretary a3 shall lead to the appointment being made. Of course, there is not a general consensus of opinion in regard to the matter, and old pre- judices do not die easily The woman doctor has yet to tight her way, and very often her gi latest- enemies are those of her own sex. Dr. Hjerbert Vacheli's Views. On Monday Dr. Herbert Vachell. or New- port-road. Cardiff, was asked by one Oi our •representatives to express- his views respecting the proposal. He readuy did repudiating the idea at once t'hat the medical profes-ion threw any obstacle in the way of lad en being admitted to practise as surgeons or -physicians, and pointed to the fact that the doors of their medical schools and liospnals were being ope: ed wider every day for -the admission or. lady medical students. But he pented out also that ladies, after being admitted to the medical profession, might find a ditficuiiv m rigidly drawing the line, that they only attended to female parents, and exclude all applications from sick male persons. Then, as regards the much more nerioug question that sick female prisoners or female inmates of a workhouse, or other publio institution of a. similar character, should be attended by a lacly medical officer, there wag, he thought, more of r-ent:im nv in the suggestion than anything else. It was a suggestion entirely opposed to pract ce. Fie had never met with a single instance in the whole course of his professional career, when even the mart delicate operation; were required to be performed, where the patient raised the slight st objection to the operation being tverformed by a surgeon. He felt convinced that the most sensitive lady would feel more confidence in the nerve and experience of the male surgeon than in the female surgeon, and this was a matter of serious consideration when probata!y the life of the patient was :n danger. Aca n, the proposal to appoint a lady medical officer to a prison or any similar institution seems to give rise to the suggestion that there is something indelicate in the surgeon perform- ing upemtioIh5 upon females. This was wrong, and such suggestions ought not to be raised. No eviration* of the kind were ever performed at publio institutions without the presence of female warders or nurses, or possibly the matron herself. At infirmaries and hospitals, when operations of a. similar nature were per- formed on a male inmate, the femala nurses were bound to be present to assist the opera- ting surgeon. There can be no question of indelicacy under circumstances which may involve the death of the patient. The status of the medical man required that no sugges- tion of the kind could be permitted. Without opposing the appointment of a lady medical officer to the Cardiff Prison, he was of opinion that it was totally unnec-es«irv. IInd would not m.eet with the approval of the female pri- soners themselves. Dr. Hardyman's Opinion. Dr. Hardyman was next seen by ou.- repre- sentative, and from the first declined to ex- press a.n opinion go far as regards the appoint- ment of a lady medical officer to the Cardiff Prison, because he was still the medical officer, and as long as he held that appointment he was precluded by the regulations of the Home Office from giving expression to any opinion that might influence one way or the other such an appointment, but while firm as regards Car- diff he was not entirely nreclnded from express- ing himself on the question in its abstract form. He was decidedly opposed to what might be called a dual medical authority in a prison or any similar publio institution. The medical officer was responsible for the whole hygiene of the prison. The lacly medical officer would not be content with having only the charge of s ck female prisoners: the arrangements in that particular part of the prison for the preservation of the health of the female pri- soners would have to be under her charge,and then difficulties aiming from the dual 'autho- rity might arise. The question was a new one. It had not been tried in any shape or form, and he could not see. if tho proposer* were in earnest, why the proposal should not be fi,t adopted in a penetentiarv oonfiiied exclusively to female prisoners- There were prisons of this kind, and. therefore, he would let the pro- posal be tned at one of them first of aU. "He felt stronrrlv that no dual appointments of the kind could be made to work well. --?
