CRICKET. SWANSEA v. CARDIFF. A CRUSHING DEFEAT. Swansea came a very i ast-Y cropper at the Cardiff Arn s' Park tifo Saturday. 218 runs (tor five -wickets) to 83 is a terrible emashmg, and no mistake. Of course due alluwance must be made for the fact that Swansea were consider- ably weakened by the absence of such sterling players as Dr. Cameron, L'r. Edgar Reid and L. W. Jones still, I cannot help thinking that this does not entirely explain away so crushing a defeat. Something must be radically wrung with the Swansea team, tor I cannot remember it ever having such a drubbing before. It may be that the Cardiflians now have a much stronger eleven than they have bad for many years It so, the Swanseaites will have to look to their laurels. Now boys, buck up, and put in plenty of time at the nets you will never be able to keep up your reputation if you don't The weather bad cleared up beautifully fine when the match was commenced at 12.45 on Saturday. The homesters won the toss, and considering the condition of the wicket, acted wisely in electing to bat first. The chief feature of the iniiiLgs—an innings remarkable for tall scoring—was the magnificent displaj of J. G. Clark. This player banged the Swansea bowling about in an astonishing manner. He, however, aeemed to preter Haycroft's fast trundling to Creber's insidious slows," and 21 were scored off Swansea's new pro. in the first three overs as against a single off the County man. When Clark had put on 61 he gave a very difficult ohance to Dyson Williams at point, who just missed the ball by a few inches. With this exception, his exhibition was a faultless one, and even the partisans of the Swansea men could aoarcely help sympathising with him when he was bowled l'y Pruchatd within two runs of his century. Slome idea of the vigour which ebaracterised his bitting may be obtained when it is stated that his total included no less than fourteen 4's. Other Cardiffians made useful contributions, and with the score at 218 they "declared," leaving Swansea two hours and a quarter to bat. What little hope of pulling the match out o1 the fire some of the Swanseaites might have entertained at the commencement of the inmngs was soon displaced by black despair as, one by one, they found themselves uuable to staud up for any length of time against the deadly bowling of Sam Lowe and Nash. 1 he first to go was Dyson Williams, while Geoghegan quickly followed. Jim Davies, who came next, managed to put on a few runs, but he soon succumbed to a beautiful ball from Nash—24-3-11. Ureber then joined Bancroft, who, as one of the first men in, had by this time got a bit used to the bowling, and seemed to be well in the running for a good Boore. The two shaped well together until, alter having been responsible for 23, the veteran footballer and cricketer attempted to pull a ball from Nash for tour and missed, with the result that his wicket was shattered. Creber is not only a most effective bowler, but also a capaule bate man, and so recognising the importance of keeping up his wicket as long as possible he settled down into the most pronounced stoae-wall methods. He was partnered in turn by Thissen and Haycroft, neither of whom, however, rendered him any material assistance. A. W. Samuels' innings was a short but merry one. tie was barely fifteen minutes in knocking up sixteen runs, but through being a little too reckless in his endeavour to slam a ball from Colley he was sent back. Not long atter this, Creber, who, meanwhile, had been playing a fine defedsiye tfame, and showing exemplary patience, as will be Men from the fact that he had only subscribed 14 runs Creber, I say, after having kept up hia wicket for an hour and ten minutes, fell a victim to Riches in the latter's first over. It is sad to think that the little County player's heroic effort at playing out time proved futile. If the Swansea "tail" had t>een of any account at all a defeat might have been averted, thanks to Creber, but alas it could do nothing with the bowling, and so the last wicket falling ten minutes before call of time, the match ended in a win for Cardiff as stated at the outset.

Premier Eleven were thus disgracing themselves and the old town at the Cardiff Arm- Park, the Swansea second stungers were reversing the order of things at the St. Helen's Field by administering a sound thrashing to Carmarthen College. The latter went in first and knocked up 126 runs-a total which the homesters, when their turn came, topped by 14 rons at the expense of only three wickets The top scorers were H. A. Ellis, who carried out hia fcat for a well-played 81, and Sergeant Holloway, who contributed 31 in excellent style. The scores were — CARMARTHEN COLLEGE. W. J.

Third Eleven made a poor show against Clydach at the St. Helen's Field. The weather was gloriously fine and the wicket was in splendid condition. Going to the wickets first, the Thirds gave a miseiable exhibition of batting an exhibition, in fact, which did not augur well f ir the future of the club. There were no less than four ducks, while the chief floorer only reached 13. It was apparent to the most casual observer that the boiling of D. Austin and Jones was too much for them. The Swansea Third stringers will have to show marked improvement in the batting department if they wish to be reckoned as serious competitors for championship honours Nothing in the mature of sensational batting was witnessed whilst the Clydach men were at the wickets, but their display was beyond a doubt superior to that of their opponents. P. Smith hit up 20_in good style, and was then nicely o. and b. by Bird W. I Arnold showed pretty form in compiling 17 D. Davies put on a well-played 15 Jack Arnold, who only recently returned from South Africa, added a useful 12, and altogether a total of 113 was compiled. Appended are the scores Swansea Thirds.—W.

JUDE'S DEFEAT IAST YEAR'S CHAMPIONS. It would seem as if St. Jude's are going to make another stern fight for premier honours in the League competition this season. They have always been regarded as one of the most formid- able clubs in the struggle, and their failure eo far in the matter of taking a first position has been due, perhaps, more to bad luck than anything else. On several occasions they have been second on the list, but last year, it will be remembered, they laboured under some serious disadvantages, not the least of which was the ground difficulty and so they fell back to a third position. Now, however, the Saints have secured a more suitable ground, and have rallied their forces to do battle for the shield. A strong, all-round eleven sallied forth on Saturday afternoon, and, falling upon last year's champions, on the latter's OIHl battle-field, smote them hip and thigh. It was a splendid way to open the season, and I tender the doughty Saints my felicitations upon their brilliant victory, at the same time hoping that it will encourage them to further efforts. St. Jude's went in first and, thanks chiefly to tall scoring by J. G. Owens and W. P. Phillips, they knocked up the highly satisfactory total of 148 runs. Owens seemed a bit rocky at first, and before entering double figures he gave one hot chance to Ward at point, but after this narrow escape he went on in fine style and scored 45 (not out) as the result of really excellent cricket. Phillips, too, showed admirable form until he misjudged one from Davies and so got caught. Bolitho's 12 were obtained by careful and scientific batting, while H. B. Davies put on a useful 13. The Gowertonians could not cope with the deadly trundling of Albert Joslyn and D. Rees, and they were all out for 45. Joslyn was in magnificent form, as will be seen when it is stated that he took seven wickets at a cost of only 13 runs Rees, too, bowled well, taking three wickets for 21 runs. The scores were as follow St. Jude's.-F. Bolitho, b J. Davies. 12 W. F. Ihomas, c Thomas, b Morgan, 11 P. Wells, run out, 10 J. G. Owens, not out 45 A. E. Joslyn, b Davies, 0 E. J.

POSTAL AND TELEGRAPH'S C.C Oystermouth opened the season in A satis- factory fashion on Saturday afternoon by gaining an easy victory over the Swansea Po-ital and Telegraph's C.C. Since last year Oystermouth have changed their ground. It is not a change for the better, but it seems they had no choice in the matter. The field is as pleasantly situated as the one the club occupied last season, but it is not quite so flat, and the ground will require a lot of rolling and watering before it is in a fit condition for play. It was in a very poor state on Saturday afternoon, and some of the batsmen had rather a rough time in consequence, while none of them seemed to feel comfortable. The visitors, who went to the wickets firElt, made a poor show against the Oystermouth bowling. The only one to enter double figures was Sid Murphy, who was unfortunate in being caught after contributing a sound 11. In the end the Swansea men were all dismissed for 42. D. Webborn bowled in a very successful manner for the homesters, capturing five wickets for 13 runs G. Ll. Hay, who, for some reason or other, was put on to bowl rather late, secured 2 for 4 and although E. Rogers took no wickets, his skilful trundling did a lot towards demoralising some of the batsmen. The feature of the Oystermouth innings was the batting display given by W. P. Gwynne. This player has in the past borne the reputation of a slogger, though by no means a reckless or indiscriminating one. He surprised us all on Saturday afternoon by playing with remarkable cautiousness. He was a subdued entity to some extent, and although he occasionally hit hard, he kept his weather eye open for contingencies, and took no liberties. After having been at the wickets for more than an hour he carried out his bat for an exceedingly meritorious 40. R. E. Gold batted vigorously and well for his 11, D. Webborn subscribed a useful 10, while Colclough Nettell made a very creditable debut and rendered material assistance to Gwynne. The match resulted in a win for the homesters by the substantial margin of 51 runs. The most effective bowler for the vanouished was S. J. Murphy, who took six wickets for 18 runs. Appended are the scores Postal and Telegraphs.—S. Murphy, c'Dorrel, b WebDorn, 11 George Beven, b Webborn, 0 J Howells, b Webborn, 0 L. Shergold, c Gold, b Webborn, 5 H.

SWIMMING NOTES. Now that the warm weather has set in. no doubt a few words anent swimming will not be out of place. It is rather surprising that a town like Swansea with every facility for learning the art of swimming don't tunn out a few long-distance champions. I believe there are plenty of good swimmers in the town who would gladly enter if some gentleman on the Swansea Swimming Club would promote a mile swimming race-and make it an annual affiair-ill our Bay or at the Mumbles, and call it the South Wales Salt Water Championship. Captain Webb, in his book, "The Art of Swimming," says As an instance of how much races are the cause of lads learning to swim, we would mention the fact thit since the Regatta Committee at Ryde, in the I-de of Wight, have instituted two races for boys under 16. in which in each the first prize was zEl, second 15s.. third lQs., ar.d fourth 5s., there is scarce'y a boy in Ryde that does not know how to swim. It is much to be regretted that such large sums of money should he annually spent in promoting' a sport in which the welfare of horses is somewhat neutralised by the degradation of human beings connected with them, while no encouragement ,g m whatever is given to a sport like swimming, which is inseparable from cleanliness, and is the means of saving annnally hundreds of human lives. The Registrar General repoits that the average loss of life each year from drowning in England and Wales alone amounts to the awful total of 2.608. Were a sum of money such as £ 200 annually granted, te be given away in prizes, say one mile in the Serpentine, first man £ 100, second £50, third £20. fourth £10, and X5 for each of- the next four, probably such an impetus would be given to swimming that this total would soon show considerable decrease."

I THE DRINK QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CAMBRIAN." Sir,—There is another point in the recent speech delivered ty the Rev. Chancellor Smith, which is not quite clear to me. He is reported to have said: "That it often struck him why was it that this great nation of ours was so terribly affected by this great evil. And the only answer he had found was this That this was the way in which Al- mighty God had been pleased to permit us to suffer for our unfaithfulness as a nation to the trust committed to us." In what way have we been unfaithful as a nation ? We have. as a. nation, disregarded the injunction contained in Genesis, i.-29: "And God said, behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the' face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat." It is true that after the flood we are told that "every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you," but with the exercise of this permission came apparently seventy per cent. of the disorders which afflict man- kind, and drunkenness amongst them. And the first cas? of drunkenness recorded in the Bible comes very soon aft-e- this permission, Genesis ix.-21. Now, as this evil has ex- isted ever since the days of Noah, should we not seek for its remedy by going back before the time of the flood? Dr. Jackson, of Dansville, U.S.A., says he found that all his efforts to reform drunk- ards were futile, as long as they took flesh as food, but by simply withdrawing flesh and tobacco, prescribing baths and a diet of fruits and grains, he succeeded in his hy- gienic institution in curing 98 con- firmed drunkards out of 100. On such a liet, he says, the desire for alcohol almost dies out of a man, and children brought up on that food rarely fall victims to strong drink, uu- less trained to its use, for their blood ia pure, their nerves supplied with propel- nu- triment, their muscles full and cordy, and their bones strong. He therefore consideri- it a solemn duty for all temperance workers to investigate this great question. Praise- worthy as it may be for the clergy to set the lafxample tof .abstaining from (intoxicating drinks, should we not be a step nearer the abolition if this example N%-ei.- extended to include the adoption of the diet originally appointed for us. and if the* same principle were also inculcated on their congregationsj If cur te-icheri undertake to guide us in the way of abolishing drunkenness, should they not advocate the only method which compe- tent experience has found to be effectual for the purpose.—I am, yours etc..

A certain private soldier, the "Regiment" teils, had just recovered from a severe wound. Feeling ill and very homesick he went to Jieadquai-ters to obtain leave of absence. Said he, in a most dejected manner, "I haven't seen my wife for nearly two years." "Why, answered the general, "1 haven't seen my wife for more than three years." "Well," said the aoldier. "that may he. sir, but me and my wife ain't that kind." The furlough was granted. Mr. Asquith, speaking on Saturday at a. political dinner at Cambridge, said that there was not to be found outside the War Office ft single thorough-going apologist for the Gov- vernment's ,scheme of Army reform. The new Education Bill, he said, was a measure which proposed to call into existence1 a num- ber of shadowy and undefined bodies with vague and indefinite duties. He concluded by calling upon the Opposition to adopt stren- uously and energetically a policy of concen- tration and of activity. Mr. Isaac Phillips, of Tyfran, Llanelly, at- tended Carmarthen Bankruptcy Court on Wednesday for his public examination. He ha.s been in jail since November for contempt of the High Courts in not paying a certain sum of money for which he was trustee. The Official Receiver, having severely examined him as to his connection with the Baptist Building Fund, the Baptist Assurance Trust. the "Sp)?n Cymru," and other corn erns, the examination was adjourned ,and debtor was removed back to prison.

SWANSEA POLICE COURT. SATURDAY. The justices present this morning were: Messrs. Wm. Walters, John Powell and Rich- ard Hughes. Minor Offences. Wm. John Churchill, a labourer, was sent to prison for one calendar month's hard la- boui-, for absconding from the Swansea Work- house, on July 30th of last year with clothes belonging to the Union.— For drunken and disorderly conduct in High-street, on Friday, Margaret Owens, Cae Pistyll-st.. was mulc- ted in a fine of 7s. 6d., or in default five days' imprisonment. The Publican and his Lodg»r. Thos. Trick, landlord of the' Albany Hotel, was summoned for refusing to hand over to a seaman lodger named Lawrence Commons his clothes and effects. Mr. Henry Thompson appeared for the defence. From the evidence of Commons, it appeared that he went to board and lodge at the Albany Hotel a week last Wednesday. He left on Tuesday, after staying there six days, and it seems that a dispute arose with regard to an amount of Is. 6d., which the landlord charged for por- terage. The seaman wanted to carry his clothes away himself, but Trick would not allow him to do so, and in consequence of the dispute he lost a boat.—A runner at the Sail- ors' Home, ajid Capt. Winter, were called to bear out the complainant's case.—At this stage, Mr. Thompson informed the Bench that his client was willing to hand over the clothes on payment of 7s. 4d., less the costs of the summons, but the magistrates directed the oase to be proceeded with.-Defendant. sworn, stated that being under the impres- sion tsat Common's wished him to do the porterage, he put an extra Is. 6d. on the bill, making the total 8s. 4d. Commons, however, then remarked that the runner at the Sailors' Home was going to carry his things away, and walked out without offering to pay even the 7s. 4d. for his board and lodgings.—P.C. Llpyd, however, was called by the seaman, and lie deposed that Commons offered Trick the 7s. 4d. in his presence. Witness asked him to give the man his things, but defend- ant refused to do fO, remarking that he did not care what proceedings were taken.—In the end, the Bench remarked that Mr. Thomp- son had done his best for his client, but the serious charge had been clearly proved. Trick would be fined 40s. and costs— £ 3 5s. 6d. in all. The County business was next proceeded with. Miscellaneous. -Frederick Davies, clerk, Llanelly, was fined 10s. including costs for riding a bicycle with- out a light at Loughor, on the 23r d ult.-D. Jones, collier. Pontardulais, was fined 10s. for a breach of the Muzzling Order; while Charles Taylor, and W. Hughes, both colliers, of the same placel, were penalised, the for- mer for inebriation, and the latter for disor- derly behaviour. MONDAY. Refreshment-House Keepers Takfr Note. The magistrates, Messrs. Simon Goldberg, Fred Rocke, and Jos. Rosser, gave their de- cision this morning in the adjourned case in which S. J. Mules, 14, Castle-street, was sum- moned for keeping his refreshment house open at 11.50 p.m. on the 27th ult. It was stated that in this borough licensed premises are closed at 11 p.m., and therefore all refresh- ment-houses should close at that hour, "and any person who shail open, or keep open, ftny refreshmentt-bouse, or seli or expose for sale or consumption therein any refresh- ments after that hour (11 p.m.). commits an offence against the statute (27 and 28 Vic- toria, chapter 64). Mr. Mules admitted that he kept open his house after that hour, and that he sold therei i certain refreshments, but to be consumed off the premises. The consumption off the premises, or on the prem- ises, does not affect.the case in any way—the offence is complete if tse house is kept open or any refreshment sold or exposed for sale therein after the closing hours." A nom- inal fine of Is. and costs was impoesd.—Mr. Mules remarked that he had no wish to in- fringe the law, his offence was committed in ignorance. Mr. Rocke: Yes; that is why we inflict only a nominal penalty. Drunk and Disorderly. Elisabeth Davies, a woman of ill-repute, living on the Strand, was fined 40s., or in default, one month's imprisonment, for drun- ken and disorderly conduct in High-street on Saturday.—George Freegard, labourer, no fixed abode, was fined 20s. for a similar of- fenoe. Assault on the Police. A coloured seaman named Alfred James, was charged with assaulting P.C. (60) Thomas. whilst in the execution of his duty in High- street, en the 12th inst. The case was proved, and a tine of 10s., or seven days, was inilcited. Theft of Railway Tickets. David Headc-n, a lad ten years of age, re- siding at 90, Foxhole-road, was charged with stealing a number of railway tickets from the booking office at the R. and S.B. Railway Station, on the 10th inst.—Jno. Hy. James, a cler kin the employ of the prosecuting com- pany. a youth named Stanley Jenkins, and P.C. Williams having been called, the Bench decided to deal with the defendant under the First Offenders' Act. Together with his father, the lad' was accordingly bound over to be of good behaviour. The Benefit of the Doubt. A married woman, named Alice Morris, liv- ing at No. 11. Uangyfelach-ctreet, was charged with stealing a gold keeper ring, valued at El IDs., from the person of George Williams, of 64, Bush-row, Morriston. It ap- peared that Williams met the defendant at the Market Stores public-liouse on Saturday, and gave her the ring to try on. The woman put it on, but when he asked her to return it, she said she could not get it off. Some time afterwards, th-j defendant left the prem- ises and he followed her to other public- houses, eventually giving her into custody. —P.C. Grove took her to the Guildhall, where the ring was removed by soaking the finger in water. Defendant denied the chaTge. and added that she never even tried to leave the prosecutor's company. The milgistrates were not convinced that the woman had any inteii- tion of stealing the ring, and so gave her the benefit of the doubt and dismissed the ease. Minor Offences. Edward Dumpliy, 42, Ebenezer-street, was fined 5?. or five days for playing pitch and toss in Victoria-road; while John Connelly, 8. John-street, was fined 2s. 6d.—John Sy- n.ous, 15, Cae Pistyll-street, for indecency in Castle Bailey-street, .>a the 1st inst., was cau- tioned and -discharged. Cruelty to Animals. Two adjourned caws of cruelty to horses, against Win. (iron" haulier, 44, Williams- street. and Win. Edward Jones, shipwright, of the same address, were dismissed, on the understanding that the defendants' would pay the cost. of the proceedings. A more seriousi case was that in which Thomas Kiley, Scyborfuch-street, was charged with causing his horse to be worked in an unfit state on the 22nd ult.—Inspector East- down proved the1 offence, and a fine of 40s. and costs, or one month's imprisonment was imposed. Fortune1 Telling at Swansea. An elderly woman earned Dinah Thomas, living at Llangyfelach-road, was summoned for to tell fortunes on the 2nd inst.—Mr. Laurence Richards appealed for the prosceutioii.—Miss Frances Rees, a young woman of a prepossessing appearance, de- posed to visiting the defendant's house on the date in tuestion in company with another yo mg wornui named James. She said that on being invited into the par- lour. the defendant produced a pack of cards which she asked witness to shuffle. Having complied with the request, witness returned the cards td the defendant, who then told her she was i nlovs with a light young man. aud had turned her back on a dark one who wished to marry her. Witness would be nur- her she was in love with a light young man, pected, and money would fall to them through death. Asked what she charged for the fore- gcing interesting information, defendant re- plied that she could give: her what she liked — some people gave her a shilling and others 6d. Witness gave her the last-named sum.— Miss Margaret James next related how the defendant told her fortunp-how she was going to wed a fine young man, who, like her friend's future husband, would eventually come in for a windfall in the shape of a leg- acy.P.C. Maggs also gave evidence, and as the defendant had offended in a similar man- ner on a previous occasion, the severe pen- I alty of £5 was imposed. The alternative was a month in durance vile. A similar case was preferred against Mrs. Hannah Bowden, of No. 12, Evans-street, who it transpired also acquainted the wit- nesses in the last case of the great things that were in store for them—including hand- some husbands and large fortunes. In this instance a fine of 40s. was imposed, as it was Mrs. Bowden's first appearance in Court. TUESDAY. Messrs. Wm. Stone, J. W. Jones, Daviu Owen and Grin. Davies occupie dthe Bench this morning. Arrears. David Telk (41), a labourer, of Sel)astopol- street, was summoned by Mary Ann Jones, of Rapsey-terrace, for arrears, amounting to 19s., under an affiliation order. Telk had only a few weeks ago been liberated from prison, where he had been serving a term for non-payment. In reply to the Bench, defend- ant said he had no money to pay the amount as he had only worked five days since he had been out of prison. He was now sent to prison for 14 days. Persistent Cruelty. William Morgan, cattle dealer, of Llangy- felach-street, was summoned for behaving with persistent cruelty to his wife. and a se- paration order was asked for. Mrs. Morgan feuid her husband had continuously assaulted her. She left her husband on Saturday af- ter being married 16 years. She bad sum- moned him four times for assault, but had withdrawn the summonses on his promising to reform. Mary Ann James having given corroborative evidence as to the cruelty, a separation order was granted, defendant be- ing ordered to contribute 15s a week towards the support of his wife and children. A Forgiving Wife. Michael Bumpster, labourer of the Strand. was charged with cutting and wounding his wife by striking her on the had with a bot- tie. Complainant said it was not her desire to say anything that would incriminate her husband, who was "one of the best" when sober, adding that he had never assaulted her previously. The police gave defendant an excellent character, and the Bench allowed him to be discharged. I Attempted Suicide. Whilst Henry Jones, a Swansea butcher, was removing gome furniture at the back of the house of Wm. Lewis. UJ. Matthew-street,' on Monday evening he heard a strange noise in an outhouse, and on opening the door found Lewi" suspended from a beam by a rope. There was a, knife on a seat close by. Jones immediately cut the rope, and sent for the police, who subsequently took the would-be suicide into custody. He was brought before the magistrates this morning and charged with attempting to commit sui- cide by hanging himself. A neighbour named Mrs. Collins, the man Henry Jones and P.C. Jones gave evidence, the last-named stating that the- defendant had been drinking. —Pris- oner was remanded for a week. The Swansea Club Prosecution. Charles Lowther, secretary; Charles Dodd and Frederick Roberts, committeemen, were charged on an adjourned summons with sell- ing by retail intoxicating liquors on prem- ises situated in Salubrious-passage, and known as the Baden-Powell Club. Mr. Lau- rence Richards proseeuted, but it was stated that Mr. Thompson, who appeared on the former occasion, had withdrawn from the defence. The secretary gave evidence as to the rules and the books kept; and said that the five persons whom the officers had found drunk on the premises, were not members. There was, he said, not a full number of coin- mitteemen, the reason being a difficulty in getting members to act on the committee. There had been no ordinary meeting every six months, as prescribed by the rules. All money paid was paid not to the treasurer, but to the committee. Asked if he could ex- plain why more attended on Sundays than on ordinary days. he said it was prdbablr because working men had more time. Dodd said he had nothing to say, while Roberts said the prosecution was due to petty spite. Defend- ants were fined H5 each. WEDNESDAY. Th? justices present this morning were: Meters. E. Rice Daniel, JliO. Powell, and D. Owen. Theft of Old Iron. Three boy-, named John James Lilly (12), Geo. Lilly (11), M.msel George's Steps; and Thos. Jno. Shannon (11). 5, Bargeman'.s-row, were charged with stealing a quantity of old iron from the back of -No. 79, Strand, the property of David Vaughan. After hearing the evidence. the charge against Geo. Lilly was? withdrawn. The other two defendants pleaded guiltv, a-.ui the magistrates, after cautioning the boys :.s to their future con- duct, ordered them to receive eight strokes with the birch rod. Crimping.—A Novel Case. James Jenkins, landlord of the Beaufort Arms public-house, Ferryside, was summoned for commuting the offence known as crimping. i.e., going on board the s.s. Stipio without the permission of the master, on February 10th. Mr. W. P. Smith prosecuted en behalf of the Board of Trade. The proceedings were taken under the Merchant Shipping Act. and Mr. Smith, in opening, said defendant was just the kind of man the legislature aimed at. A Board of Trade constable,named Frood, deposed to finding Jenkins on board the Scipb. on the morning of its arrival in dock. He knew the man as he had bad oc- casion to warn him on a previous occasion. Witness asked Jenkins if he had had permis- sion from the captain to come on board, and, receiving no satisfactory reply, he requested him to coiuc before that officer with him, but defendant distinctly refused and became most abusive. Finally the master came on deck, and answering "Frood's query in the negative, he ordered defendant ashore. The boatswain of the vessel having been called, j defendant denied that he had been previously warned by Frood. and added that lie was ig- norant of the law.-The Bench considered the offence a serious one, and imposed a pen- aJtv of 40s. and costs, am-Hinting in all to £ b 4s. Cd. Abduction of a Boy. John Blackmore and Wm. Perrins, two labourers, living at Brynliyfryd, were jointly charged with abducting a bov named Sidney Will lams. 1 ioin the Truant School at Bony- maen on Easter Monday.—Mr. Geo. Isaac appeared to prosecute on behalf of the School Board, and Mr. J. Viner Lieder defended. It appeared that while the boy Williams was out playing in flie yard with the other lads on the date in questioi;, the defendants rushed in through the door and carried him off. Evidence having been tendered by Mr. Ed- wardK superintendent of the school, and otheis, who deposed to witnessing thf ab- duct ion, it transpired that two of Wii Hams' brothers were concerned in the affair, but they had since disappeared. The defendants set up an alibi, swearing that neither of them were at Bonvmaen on ina.,ter Monday mom- ing.—In the end, the Bench held that the case against Perrins was proved, and inflicted a. fine of 40s., including costs. Blackmoie was however, discharged. Alleged As.-ault by a Pugilist. A young man named David Thomas, well- known in spotting circles, was charged on remand with assaulting Annie Winter on Monday evening. The defence was that de- fendant was in bed at the time of the alleged assault, and evidence in support of an alibi having been heard, the case was dismissed. Mr. Yiner Leeder defended. Other Cases. Richard Cutliffe, Swansea, was fined 15s. for being drunk at the Mumbles.—Hopkin John, fi-h merchant, for being at such a dis- tance from his horse and cart as not to have proper control of same at Mumbles, was fined 10s.Walter Thomas and David John Thomas, colliers, were summoned for tres- passing in pursuit of game on land belonging to Col. J. R. Wright, on May 3th. The offence was admitted, and a fine of 40s. was imposeel on Walter, and 2Cs. and costs on David Thomas. The former had already been con- victed of a similar offence.

INSULTING THE KING. AX ANGRY DEBATE IX THE HOI'SE OF COMMONS. In the Commons on Friday ,un angry debate on the seizure of the "Irish People" for a sc urrilous libel on the King, was initiated by Mr. Dillon. who moved the adjournment of the House. Mr. Dillon, in a wild speech, condemned the Chief Secretary for suppres- sing the paper because it containe-d au attack upon himself. Mr. Wyndham denied this, and stated that his orders were given berore he knew of the attack upon hinivself. He would not soil his lips by repeating the words for which action was taken, but if the poison, affected had a grievance, their remedy was in the law courts. Mr. Balfour followed Mr. John Redmond. The Leader of the House went straight to the point, and asked hon. members if the pub- lication of obscene libels was a necessary weapon in the armoury of Irish agitation. It Mr. Wyndhaon committed an illegality they had their remedy in an action at law. There could be no jury-packing there. "Set the machinery of the law in moticfn," ex- claimed Mr. Balfour "if you wish to cham- pion this scurrilous libel." Mr. Asquith took the side of the Govern- ment in declaring this was a question not for the Commons but for the law courts. The House ultimately divided, and 252 voted with the Government and 64 against.
ON THE PARIS "TUBE." PASSENGERS INJUEED IN A PANIC. Rather a bad accident, produced by sud- den panic among the passengers, occurred on the Paris "Tube" on Sunday evening, writes the correspondent of the "Daily Tele- graph." A storage shed of wooden planks, built on a siding platform at the Lyons ter- minus station., crught fireruddenly from some cau* still to be ascertained, and was a mas'? of flames in a few moments. A train came up to the station just as the conflagra- tion was at its height. The engineer, alarmed at the spectacle dc-enied it wiser not to stop, and went straight on, meaning to continue to the next station. Before reaching the lat- ter, however, a danger signal brought him to a stop. Meanwhile the passengers, who had unexpectedly been whisked past the plat' -n in and had caught sight of a terrifying ma flames and smoke, giving the idea tha e whole place was on fire, bad been th) -n into a state of great aiann. When I hir train stopped suddenly in the tunnel, which was filled with dense fumes from the conflag- ration, almost entirely obscuring the lights, they lost their heads entirely^ and a fearful panic ensued. A wild rush wa> made for tLe doors", people trampling each other, and some breaking the glass windows with their fists- in their efforts to get out. Those who suc- ceeded fell heavily or were thrown by others behind them on the metals. By a providen- tial accident no train passed down on the other line at the time. and none of the pas- senger, touched the rail carrying the electric curient. Equally fortunate was the presence of mind of the guard, who led all the pas- sengers not too injured to walk to the next station through the tunnel filled with smoke along the middle of the permanent way. thus preventing anybody coming into contact with the current-bearing rail. Help was soon ob- tained, and the wounded were conveyed home or to the hospital. It was found that seven persons had bee-n badly hurt in the panic, the injuries in all case* having been received on the bead, face, and arms. owing to the vic- tiru", having been thrown down on to the line by the terror-stricken crowd. In some instances a commencement of suffocation had been produced by the volumes of smoke and passes from the fire in the tunnel. J

A family consisting-of the father and mother and five children occupied the top looms. Then arenas, with an infants, were rcscued. but the other four children were suffocated. Little damage was done by the fire to the premises, which are situated be- side a police-barracks. I
STOCK EXCHANGE GAMBLING. PANIC AT WALL-STREET. New York papers state that keen interest is manifested as to the final result ot the eon- test for supremacy of the Northern Pacifie Railway, which was the prime cause of the hoom aud its naturally consequent slump. The leading contestants are silent, but it is believed that the Morganitss have succeeded in retaining hold cf the iine. Thursday's losses tie stated to have been stupendous. One American commercial papei places the losses in the bucket-slops in the country at 50.0C0.000 d -liars. The "Dailv Mail's" Nc-w York coriespondent st ;tes that the new-jja- pers ¡U'i: printing columns of pitiiui stories of unfortunate speculators ruined by the panic.

AUSTRALIAN COMMON- WEALTH. THE ROYAL VISIT. On Saturday, at Melbourne, the Duke and Duchesg of Cornwall and York witnessed a procession of 22,000 members of friendly so- cieties and trades organisations. A number of elaborate tableaux had been prepared for the occasion, some of them showing workmen engaged in different industra. l occupations. Their Royal Highnesses afterwards proceeded to the University, where the Heir-Apparent • was admitted to the degree of Doctor of Laws. In the. afternoon a fete for children of the State schools took place in the Exhibition grounds. The Duke heid a Privy Council during the day. and also invested a number ot gentlemen with the honour of Knighthood.
THE COAL TAX PLOTEST BY ENGLISH MINERS Over eighty trains oonveyed 60.000 miners ajid -r:ends into Southport on Saturday for the annual demonstration of the Lancashire and Cheshire miners. A public Metin, was held in the afternoon in the Recreation Ground, and resolutions passed in favour of pressing forward with increased vigour the Miners' Eight Hours' Bill, Mines' Kegula- tion Bill, f oal Weighing Materials Bill, Coal Mines Employment Bill. and the amendment of the Workmen's Compensation Act to em- brace all trades and prevent contracting out. On the motion of T. Gi-ounball. seconded -by S.Walsh, and supported by Sam Wood-, a resolution was passed eondeninatf/y of the tax on exported coal, which was characterised as a flagrant interference with our industrial system, and a destructive step tc export trade. Its affect, it was said, would be to throw men cut of employment, It-ad to unnecessary friction between workmen and employer, and ithe nation will not in any way be benefitted. Mr. Sam Woods urged that before coal was taxed they ought to have looked to taxation ci land tor revenue, and the Transvaal mine-, ought, to be compelled to pay their share of the cos- of the war.
"INNOCENT UNTIL PROVED GUILTY" THE PRESS AND THE ENGLISH LAW. At Bristol Police Court on Saturday < 'h, i !< John Tibbits, editor, and I'haries Windu^t, described as special crim" investigator, ot the London "Weekly Dispatch," were summoned for attempting to pervert the due courst- oi justice in connection v ith the recent Allpcrt i cuse hejrd at Bristol Assizes. Mr. Oliarh •> Mathews, who prosecuted for the Tieasurv, explained that there were separate chaiges and a joint charge of conspiracy. Attention had more than once been called to the fact that injurious comment pending Police Court proceedings and pending trials had issued from a limited section of the Press which had in this way. he said, attempted to peTvert tha course of justice, and seemed to make pro- fit by prejudging criminal cases. Counsel then read -iriicles from the paper in ques- tion bearing upon the Allport case, and at the conclusion of the evidence for the prosecu- tion. Mr. Harold Simmons, why defended .stu i his clients, reserved their defence pend- ing rial. It is under-tcod that Mrs. Walter Insole oi Pencisely. has left £2,000 to Barry In- firmary. cn certain conditions. £ 500 to Cardiff Infirmary. £ 500 to Llandaff National Schools, and £ 100 for a cabmen's shelter in Westgate- street-Cardiff.
