cl WITH INTENT TO MURDER." GRAVE CHARGE AGAINST SWANSEA MAN. ASSIZE TRIAL HIS PASSIONATE LETTER. "LITTLE MARY'S" CONFLICTING STATEMENTS. LENIENT SENTENCE ON A LESSER COUNT. i Glamorgan Assizes on Saturday, before Mr. Justice Jelf, Thomas Archibald Davies (20), hotel por- ter, formerly of Swansea, was indicted tor feloniously wounding Mary Condoa, v, ±bh in- tent to do Ler grievous bodily harm, at Car- diff, on July 6th. There was a second count charging the accused with wounding v..Lt,n unent to murder. Mr. Ivor Bowen prosecuted, and Mr. St. John Francis Williams defended. In opening, Mr. Bowen said he thought there could be no doubt that the prisoner wounded the girl with intent to murder her, with intent to do her grievous bodily harm. Last year prisoner was employed at the Park Hotel as under-boots, and at the same hotel was Mary Condon, a housemaid. They got to know one another very well, and there wis no doubt more than friends tup sprang up. They walked out three or four times 3. week, but something coming to the knowledge of the prosecutrix, she decided to have nothing more to do with him. Pris- oner, however, persisted, and then, to get away from his attentions, the young woman went to Treforest and afterwards to Lang- land Bay. Then she returned to Cardiff, and subsequently took a situation at "he /al Hotel, Cardiff. Prisoner had become under-boots at the Angel, and still persisted in his attentions. On June 29th be called at the hotel and asked what she was going to do. She gave him a denial, and then Prisorer became very violent, seized her ,-y the wrist, and attempted to strangle her, saying, "Now, then, what will you do now? Prosecutrix, in order to get away, said "I will see you again." Subsequently prisoner told her "It won't be well for you tU SOe y°u Wlt,h another fellow." On oth or 6th July prisoner went to a shop in Cardiff and bought a sheath Knife. -ben the same day ho sent a letter by hand to the P' ecutrix addressed "My darling Mary, and stating:— No doubt you will be surprised to receive this note by hand, but I have sent it to tell you I have left the Angel, and that I Am going away by the North Briton, a boat I tried for as engineers' steward some time ago. I got the job this morning. I have got the sack trom the Angel for not doing my duties. The reason was I did not com- Ply with their wishes because you have un- hinged my mind since we have parted. I nave been on the verge of madness. I wrote to you, but you didn't answer my letter. Why, darling, you could have said or no. I have had no sleep once I left Newport; I have been thinking about you all the time. When they asked Le this morning to do a certain thing I for- got all about it, and the consequence was I had to clear out. The boat is sailing to-morrow morning at 3.30 for a six months vcyage. I have got to be aboard by eleven o'cl< at night; so I am taking the liberty for the last time of asking you, for old tirr sake, to come out, if only for two hours. Dearest old girl, this is the last tims I am going to ask you for such a thing. I know you have made up your mind not to go out with me again; but, for the sake of the happy times we have had together, come and see me to-night. I will treat you with the best of respect. I only want to see and talk to you as in the days gone by. I will go out of your life altogether after to- night only, for God's sake, let me see and speak to you for the last time. We will take a walk up Roath Park, if you like, to the top." Prosecutrix turned up to see the prisoner. Coming to the day in question they had been out together, and when prisoner's back was turned she got back to the EoyaJ Hotel. Pnsooer caught her by the entrance, and following close on her heels, stabbed her. Fortunately the act was witnessed by Wm. Parfitt, head boots, who sprang .t the pris- oner and bore him to the ground, holding him till the police arrived. Prosecutrix, a petite brunette, attired in a pink blouse and black skirt, bore out the foregoing, stating that they became ac- quainted 18 months ago and kept company f ten months. Prisoner was not willing for her to give him up, and he had told her that if he caught her with anyone else ne would shoot her. Prosecutrix recounted how she went to the Queen's Hotel—where th prisoner came every day—and then went to Treforest to get out of the way of the prisoner, who, however, found her out And went up chere four times. Mr. Ivor Bowen Did you go out with him then?—Yes. Did you come back to Cardiff a rwa.rd.s Y -No, I went then to a situation at Langland Bay Hotel. Why did you go there?—To get out of his way. Did be find you out there?—Yes. She left Langland Bay on the day before Good Friday and came back to the Royal, Cardiff. Prosecutrix then related the prisoner's efforts to see her, and when he caught her by the wrists she did say, "For God's sake, let me go; I will befaithful." On the after- noon of the date named she had seen him and then slipped him. He came up to her by the hotel, and she noticed him put his

You are quite welcome to anvthing they have. You must not be shv so if you think so much of me as you say! nothing will stop you. I have not known what it is to be without you, but I know now absence makes the heart grow fonder. I have missed you, love, I am lonely. The night is long, I want you only." (Laughter.) Prosecutrix smiled, but the Judge re- minded her it was not a laughing matter. Further questioned, prosecutrix said she was not quite frank when she said she went to Treforest to get out of his way. The le ter was signed, "I remain, your loving little Mary." (Laughter). His Lordship said he could not understan prosecutrix's answers. She had stated she went to Treforest to get out of his way, and then she had written a letter like the one read. (To the prosecutrix): Did you go to get out of his way, and then changed your mind?—Yes. A letter written by the prosecutrix on January 19th stated, "One letter here is worth 20 in the Queen's. You have pro- mised to let me have a letter at the tfhd of the week, and I have not had one yet, un- less I have on on Saturday morning. Mr. Lane wants you to come up to dinner on Sunday. With fondest love from little Mary." (Laughter). On Januaiy 23rd prosecutrix wrote, "My own dear Tom," stating she was so lonely, and re- maining "Your loving Mary." On Janu- ary 30th another letter was written by her in the same strain, and also on February 3rd. Mr. St. John Williams: You say you went to Langiand Bay to get out of his way. Do you mean it Prosecutrix: No, sir. Judge pointed out the two different and contraray statements by the prosecutrix. Prosecutrix: He asked me to correspond with him, and he made me promise to do so. Was it. an untruth when you said you w^t there to get out of his way? Mr. St. John Williams: Why did you state 60 Prosecutrix made no answer, nor did she, in answer to the judge, who remarked, "You have twice been caught out in a de- liberate lie." Pressed by Mr. St. John Williams further, she said, "I didn't know what 1 was saying." On April 10th prosecutrix wrote from Langland Bay, addressed "Dear Tom," and statmg that she was more dead than alive- just like being in prison. She could eee plenty of water and mountains around. "Your people are expecting you down at Easter." Prosecutrix admitted she had continued to visit the prisoner's parents. The letter further stated that prosecutrix was going to the prisoner's aunt's that after- noon. She had taken notice of his cool let- ter— "quite different to what I used to have from you. But, there, I don't suppose you care. I have always told you 'Out of sight, out of -mind,' and my words are coming trus." On April 15th prosecutrix wrote stating she would see the prisoner at three o'clock by the Park Hotel on Monday. Prosecutrix now admitted that she was then fond of the prisoner, and he of her, and that the strangling incident was exaggerated. She admitted corresponding with the pris- oner on friendly terms up to June this year. On June 13th she wrote: "My own dear Tom, just a few lines to ask you to forgive I me for the way I served you on Tuesday. 1 am very sorry for writing such a nasty let- ter but, still, you didn't ought to take nny notioe of me, because 1 don't mean any harm by it. I hope in the future we shall be different to each other, and not quarrel any more. It is your place to rule over me so when you see me looking cross try and control my temper. (Laughter.) You must have more faith in me. You say you can't trust me out of your sight. My dear Tom, I only wish you could come and see me, not knowing you were watching me "This," interposed counsel, "is the man v om you say was persecuting you I" The letter continued: "If every girl was as faithful as I am to you, I don't think there would be so many crimes done. 1 have felt very sorry all day for doing it, be- cause 1 know what your feelings are. 1 have lost my voice through jawing so much. (Laughter.) I remain, your loving Mary. Prosecutrix, further cross-exasimed, stat- ed that prisoner brought her down to Swan- sea to see his parents in June last, and o&e was enga. d to be his wife. But for the in- terference of her sister she would have married him. She believed he loved her, and she believed her sudden refusal had affected his nund. They parted on June £ 3, the reason being that Her sister would not approve of him. Judge Why did you let your sister inter- fere? Couinn t you judge for yourself? Prosecutrix: 1 could not help it. Are you not strong enough to resist your sisters and go on your own judgment?—She was always going on to me. Have you not strength of mind to act tor yourself. You are fond of him and he of you, and there is no reason why you shouldn't be. Couldn't you have had suffi- cient strength of mind to say "1 will judge for myself?"—I did say that. And she still went on to you, and at 'a&t you gave way?—Yes. Mr. St. John Francis Williams, opening the defence, was suggesting the advisability of pleading guilty to unlawful wounding without intent, and bis friend said u MIS lordship consented Judge said it was too serious and must po before the jury. He thought the man had very great provocation. The girl had ap- peared to liave behaved in a most extraor- dinary way, shilly-shallying in the way she had, and in a way to aggravate a man. Mr. Ivor Bowen said after the letters, which the prosecution did not know of, he did not feel disposed to proceed with the col of intent to murder. His lordship said it lay upon the other count and the finding of a misdemeanour. It was understood that the parties would confer during the luncheon interval. After the adjourami&nlt Mr. St. John Franci •. Williams pleaded guilty an prisoner's I behalf, to wounding with extent to do grieTOILS bodily harm. The Judge thought it was the best course, statins; that he did not believe the prisoner intended to kill her. Mr. Williams said it was equally con- sistent to come to the conclusion that the prisoner- bought the knife for the purpose I of going to sea—one of the witnesses for I tito; prt'eecotioo slated thflt- be sold v O^ENS ditT 00 SEAMAN—as for the SUPPOSITION th&t PRISONER bought it to do the girl harm- There wars no evidence of any previous ccai vidian.

Constantino, Pickering ajid Co., I ship store merchants, Swansea and Cardiff, said about two year- ago pneouer was as- sistant store-keeper for some time. Pris- oner wiae one of the best boys witness ever had, and left to better himself. Mr. Sidney Durk. a teacher at Wesley Snnda; School, Swansea, said he knew the prieone for nine yqpxs. He was an excel- lent scholar and kept good company. Mrs Philpin, 27, George-street, Swansea, aunt of the prisoner, said the prisoner lived at HER house before he went to Cardiff. It -AS to her house he brought the prosecutrix on three or four occasions. SENTENCE: JUDGE AND PROSE- CUTRIX. The JUDGE referred to the terrible act, which he hoped tine prisoner realised. With a. knife he plunged it into prosecutrix's back and if the wOlliid-which was from half an inch to an inch deep—had been deeper, prisoner would undoubtedly have been tried for murder. Providence had hoon on his side, and protected him from the capital charge. Proceeding, his Lordship said he could not help feeling the prisoner had been badly treated by the woman, whom he was extremely fond of, and who had played fast and loose with him. She had practically admitted that. Keeping on being fond of him and going back to prisoner and induc- mg him back, and kept on breaking it off because her sisteT, without any rhyme or reason did not approve of prisoner. It was a very dangerous course for a sister to assume. Simply because she did not Iincy the prisoner the had no business to inter- fere between her sister and the latter s habits Of course, his Lordship did not know what she had in her mind. It was cruel, and the way prosecutrix had treated the prisoner seemed to have led him into a state of frenzy. NO one who knew humar. nature but could say how intensely provoking it was a man in love. His Lordship said he wa.s going to take a very lenient view, in consequence of the state of things and the prisoner's good character. The use of a Knife WAS not an English way. Sentence of cix months' imprisonment in the second division was passed.

"BACK TO THE ANCIENT BITTERNESS." KIPLING'S STRIKING POEM ON SOUTH AFRICA. The "Standard" publishes a poem from Rudyard Kipling, the object of which is to warn the country against the policy of the present British Ministry regarding the new constitution in the Transvaal, which, it ia feared, will give the Boers political ascen- dancy again. Some of the most striking verses are:— The shame of Amajuba Hill Lies heavy on our line, But here is .shame completer still And England makes no sign. Unchallenged, in the market-place Of Freedom's chosen land. Our rulers pass our rule and race Into the stranger's hand. At a great price you loosed the yoke 'Neath which our brethren lay (Your dead that perished ere 'twas broke Are scarcely dust to-day). Think you ye freed them at that price? Wake, or your toil is vain! Our rulers jugglingly devise To sell them back again. Back to the ancient bitterness Ye ended once for all- Back to oppression none may guess Who have not borne its thrall- Back to the slough of their despond, Helots anew, held fast I By England's seal upon the bond As Helots to the last.
KING'S FAREWELL TO 3rd SCOTS GUARDS. DISBANDED BY THE ARMY REDUCTIONS. LAST PARADE AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE. The 3rd Battalion Scots Guards, which is about to be disbanded, marched to Buck- ingham Palace on Saturday morning for final inspection by the King prior to dis- bandment. It had besn expected the battalion would also have given up its colours, but his Majesty has decided that this part of the ceremony might be deferred until the dis- bandment ts completed. The troops were drawn up m line on the lawn in front of the Palace, and as the King appeared on the TERRACE he was received with a. ganeral salute, while the band played the National Anthem. After his Majesty had inspected the Line, the battalion marched past in quick time. The troops then formed into a hollow square, and the King made a short speech. The following are the terms in which the King referred to the disbandment:—My Government has considered it necessary to reduce the expanses of the Army in conse- II quence of which there is to be a reduction both of our artillery and infantry, and your battalion is included in this reduction. I have, therefore, ordered you to come here to-day that I might inspect you and express to you my appre- ciation of your valuable services, which are now to oease." Dealing with the appearance of the talion, the King said, "I never saw a finer bodv of officers and men, and it is with sincere regret that I part from you to-dav. You have done your duty well during the five YEARS you have been in existence. It IS just over five vears since I presented to you the col OUTS which you surrender to-day, and which were to have been presented to you by my late revered mother, Queen Victoria. I hope you will later, when your duties A?6 over, confide your colours to my care. I shall always preserve them reli- giously at Buckingham Palace." Hie: Majesty added that it was pa?sible the time might come when the battalion would again serve with the colours. Regarding the siijrendex of the colours mentioned by the King, there was a tech- nical surrender on Saturday, says the Prees Association, aI5 the battalioin will never again go on parade as a battalion, but as long a" any unit of it remain the colours will not be handed over to the King's keeping. Queen Alexandra displayed a great in- terest in the inspection, and took a number of snapshots. of snapshots.

HOPE FOR RUSSIA. f I PLANS OF THE NEW PREMIER. I "HIGHEST SPIRIT OF I LIBERALISM." DUMA MANIFESTO AS OPERA BOUFFE. (Reutr Special Telegram.) St. Petersburg, Thursday.—I 6aw Mr. Stolypin, the new Russian Premier, this af- ternoon, and his Excellency was kind enough to favour me with his views upon the exist- ing crisis. Speaking with considerable feeling, M. Stolypin said "There has been no coup d'etat. Nothing has been done which :8 not in accordance with prescribed constitu- tional methods. The Czar is empowered by the fundamental code to dissolve the Duma, ano no other course was open to his Ma- jesty. 'At the present moment three policies were open to the Czar and his advisers— reaction; second, impassivity towards the thraatened revolution; third, a policy of srong-handoo reform. It is the last-men- tioned policy upon which the Czar resolved and upon which we have now entered. I "The policy of reaction is that which is farthest removed from the Czar's wishes, but the revolutionaries must be thwarted before there can be any possibility of decid- ing on the definite bases of a stable future. I personally place implicit reliance in "he in e patriotism and civic sense of the maS6 of the nation. I believe that the Czar's ap- pe to them, backed up by constant evi- dences of good faith and honest endeavour on the part of his Majesty's representatives, will result in the extinction, or at least -.e effective repression, of the anarchical forces. "His Majesty and those who are moat I closely in touch ith him admit the justice of many of the claims put forward by -he peasants, and nothing will be left undone to rolve the agrarian problem in r spirit of sympathy, generosity, and equity. I believe the peasants will recognise this when the details of our land proposals are fully ex- plained to !1em, with the aid of local com- missions nominated from among those who enjcy the confidence of the peasantry. "When the Cabinet is complete we shall oomo for- an. with an exhaustive pro- gramme covering the land question and other subjects which demand immediate solution." M. Stolypin described the Duma mani- festo as a piece of opera bouffe and a pro- duction not worthy of criticism. He believ- ed strength was required, not reaction, hu- manity, not cruelty, good sense, not hysteri- cal promises. The Czar had not a doubt concerning the future. "We have," lie concluded, "two distinct movements in Russia—first, a social one, in- cluding the agrarian and labour problems; ari second, a political one. The former h"; all our sympathy, and will be the object of our most attentive study; the second will be dealt with as circumstances may dictate. Force is required in all countries r ippress revolution, but I repeat, and cannot repeat too strongly, that reaction finds no place ;n our programme, and that all reforms xm- sistent with the highest spirit of iberalism shall be carried out when the ground tias been prepared."
AMMAN DEATH TRAP, MIRACULOUS ESCAPE AT GLAN- AMMAN. Miss Ceridwen Davies, of Tirydail, Am- iranford, miraculously escaped death at GlanamQun, rn Thursday, whilst cycling. She was proceeding home from a mountain toad, and whilst negotiating the sharp turning on Anlman Bridge, she, with her bicycle, jumped the low parapet, which is only 28 inches high, into th3 river beneath, a distance of about 20 feet. Luckily, her fall was broken by some thorn bushes. Had she fallen a few inchcs wide, she would have been pitched intc. a quarry, and deatn would, undoubtedly, have ensued. She sustained a fracture of the right shoulder bone, and contusion of the face. The bridge is a veritable death-trap, and only last week a girl was seriously injured there.
SWANSEA AND CARDIFF HOSPITALS. INTERESTING COMPARISON BY THE LANCET." TH3 report of the Cardiff Infirmary for t.he year 1905 (says the "Lancet") shows that the average cost p-er occupied bed was 5s. 4d., a sum which compares favour- ably with that expended in TFTE Swansea Hospital during the year endi-d M'ay 21 last, namely, £ 71 19s. It IS only fair to STATE that the cost per bed in Swansea in state that the cost per bed in Swansea in the previous year was only £63 12.3., and the total income in the year just ended fell short of th3 total expenditure by only £183, whereas the Cardiff expenditure exceeded the income by £2,312. I The more favourable- financial position of' the Swansea institution appears to be al- most entirely due to the larger proportion- ate amount contiibuted by the workpeople of the district, AS compared with Cardiff. The total income in Swansea was and the workpeople subscribed £3.519 or 42 per cent. In Cardiff the total income was £11,725, and the workpeople's contribution was £3,584, or 30 per cent, of the whole. If the Cardiff workpeople had contributed in the same proportion as their comrades in Swansea, there would have been a balance on the right side of nearly £100 on the year's working of the Cardiff institution.
CONSERVATIVE ORGANIZATION. SPECIAL MEETING OF THE NATIONAL UNION. A special conference of National Union of Conservative Associations W^» opened on Friday at Hotel Cecil, London, to consider the question of party reorganisation. MI. H. M. Imbert Terry presided. A resolution was adopted expressing approval of the policy laid down by Mr. Balfour and Mr. Chamberlain, as expressed in the corres- pondence published, and accepted by the I meeting at Lansdowne House. I Mr. L. J. Maxse moved a resolution as- serting that no reorganisation would meet the demands, which did not bring the Cen- tral Office under more popular control. He argued that the present machinery wa-s out of date. They were endeavouring to run democracy on oligarchy lines. The feelings of the rank and file had been ignored. He did not think it was an exaggeration to say that some of their LEADERS knew no more about the man in the street than about the man in the moon. Mr. Bridgeman, M.P., seconded the mo- tion. Sir Carne Rasch rose for the purpose of defending Sir A. Acland Hood, whom he re- O-ardiad as the strongest man in the partv since Lord R. Churchill. MT. Leverton Harris complained that the pledges given at Newcastle as to MAKING an Advisory Committee representative had not been carried out. Sir A. Acla.nd Hood, defending his own standpoint, claimed that an entire change had taken place between the relationship of the Central Office and the Union. The party woulq never accept a caucus such as was in- volved in Mr. Maxse's proposal. I In response to appeals, Mr. Maxse ultim- atel withdrew the resolution. The consideration of new rules was then introduced.

Still another very satisfactory week's shipping can be recorded at Llanellv DURING the past week, and, if 'anything, THE value of tonnage handled was higher than even the previous busy week. The aggregate for the past month will probably "establish a record in coal Shipments at the docks. TN- greater portion of the coal was forwarded to the French market. Stocks have again been reduced, but there is still far too much coal on hand to be of any ASSISTED to the market. One of the bigger collieries have between two and three hundred wagons under load. The G.W.R. are doing their utmost to keep puce with the greaftlv increased outputs which regularly come from the collieries, and have made big ex- tensions in their siding accommodation, but this must still be increased if the several new collieries opening out prove success- ful. The tone of the coal market is again of a downward tendency, and the position is not nearly so cheerful as was the case a month or so ago. Forward bookings are quieter, and prices are lacking in firmness. For prompt shipments colliery people are prepared to give oonoeEsions of at least a. shilling per ton. A large quantity of coal is weekly being sent to Old MiHord from the Glypea Colliery, and the Broadoak Col- lieries, for ht fish trawlers, the annual qiantity sent from these collieries being about 80.000 tons. The position in the tinplate trade does not show any sign of improvement, and there is nothing to indicate any such row buoyancy in the trade as to relieve it of the severely oppressive features which have caused so muoh anxiety to those associated with it. A little more activity has been displayed at the local works, and the num- ber of mills. it work have been increased.

He became worse on his return, and on Sunday about one o'clock pass>XI away in the presence of his old friends, Mr. T. D. Jones (accountant) and Mr. David Williams (ironmonger).

GOWER SEAT. LABOUR PARTY'S WARNING TO "MABON" AND OTHERS. Mr. E. L. Chap pell, Ystalyfera, writes to a Cardiff contemporary pointing out tbaii- Mr. John Williams' Gower candidature was ,s susessful Tiainly through the strenuous ef forts made by the Labour people who sup- ported the princirle of independence advo- cated by the L.R.C. He ontinues "The miners probably do not form more than half of the voting strength of the Gower constituency; the remaining half consists largely of members of other Trade Unions, notably of the Tin and Sheet iallilmen's, the Steel Smelters', and the Dowers Unions, all three of which are affiliated lJÛ the Labour Representation Committee, and whose members are consequently pledged to independence of political action. To these men Labour representation without political independence is an abomination, and if the Federation refitses to affiliate, "Mabon" and his colleagues must not be surprised if the steel smelters and tinplate workers with a large number of unattached supporters withdraw their suport from Mr. John Wii- liams, "nd take steps to further the candi- dature of a., man who is free to accept the principle of independence."
RAIN FOR THE MINERS. MISERABLE DAY FOR NEATH COLLIERS' DEMONSTRATION. "MABON'S" GENTLE HINT TO WAVERERS. The annual demons.tration of mirujrs in connection with the anthracite district was held a.t Neath on SAI/URDAY. The weather was wretched, and undoubtedly militated against the attendance at the Gwvn Hall, where th3 meeting was held. Seven Sisters' and Glyn Neath colliers, ac- companied by brass and fife bands, were present in pretty good force, but when the proceedings commencad at 2.15—three-quar- ters of an hour late-there were not more than four hundred present. Principal speakers were Sir D. Brynmor Jones, M.P -Air- W. M. Thompson, editor of "Reynold's" newspaper, and Mr. W. Abraham, M.P., presided. "Mabon," in opening the proceedings, said they must excuse him from taking a lengthy part because, like the poor, he was always with them. (Laughter). He wanted to i-pr- upon them the important of being faithful to their Union. Many had been tramping from colliery to collierv and losing in wages ten times the amount they would pay to the Union. "Don't," con- tinued the speaker, make it imperative upon your fellow-workers to use anything else but reasonable means to bring vou back to the ranks of unionism." MNOLAUSE Mr Rees HOP^ CRYNANT^P^ and MR Thomas B. Thomas, Aberpergwm. seconded, a resolution expressing unabated confidence in th? Miners' Federation. Mr. Wm. Thompson said he could not understand why any working man could re- mam outside trade unions. TSbay sent mis- sionaries abroad; let them send mission- aries to the industrial heathen at home The House ot Lords were going to mutilate the useful measures of the House of Commons- how long were the workers going to tolerate the actions of these titled footpads' The old publican had passed awav. The new publican sat in the Lords, and gave them bad beer sometimes mixed with arsenic. (Laughter). lie looked to the Welsh mem- bers to lead the campaign. "Mabon" later followed with some re- marks respecting the two parties -N the House of Commons—the Labour party group and the Trades Union labour group HE stated that they were working in harmony. The statements made outside were untrue He respected the opinions of their friends The latter believed that they could reaoli the goal quicker and maintain it better when they got to it by certain means. They had a right to their opinions, which he re- spected. He also had a right to his. (Ap- plause.) HE hoped they would vote in ac- cordance with their convictions, and let them beware of quarrelling on the way.

Bajineid, the commander of the \e1611 Brigade, said he was very proud indeed of the ordis. The idea of the Welsh volunteers being not to act as a field army but mainly for the defence of the coast of South Wales, i- gave him great pleasure to watch them carrying out the oonurands which he thought would be most useful for the defence of their homes. The band played the men to the station. The journey home being a long one CoL Rees very thoughtfully supplied bread, cheese and pop to the men. When headquarters a.t Swansea were reach TO Col.

I JUDGES AT ST. MARY'S. IMPRESSIVE AND SUGGESTIVE SETF MON BY. REV. D. WILLIAMS. SIN AND SALVATION IN HUMAN NATUHE. In accordance with custom, His Majesty's judges holding the present Glamorgan size at Swansea—Mr. Justice Jelf and h Justice Sutt,on-attended divine service èiC St. Mary's Parish Church on Sunday morn- ing, accompanied by the High Sheriff (Mr. H. Edwards), Sheriff's Chaplain (the Rev. D. Williams, M.A., vicar ot Llangv- felach), and the Under-SheTill (Mr. George Isaac). On the judges' carriage, attended by the mounted escort and a posse of county police on foot, arriving at the church gates the herald played "God Save the King, their lordships passing up the walk, where the choir were lined out. Rev. D. Williams, M.A., preached to a large congregation from the words "He re- storeth my soul," and alluded to the difficult problem—than which there was no harder to solve—of the origin of sin and evil in -HE world. Confronted by the difficulty, many had said but for that they would become Christians but the rev. gentleman remind- ed them the mystery of evil was not caused by the Christian religion, but was one of the mysteries of life itself, and when a. man thoug-T of the difficulties of Christianity (Ie should remember the difficulties were not so much connected with the Christian religion as life. Evil did exist—their own hearts bore witness to it—and granting the exist- ence of evil in their hearts and the world, was recovery possible for them and restora- tion possible for the sinner? The answer O that question would depend to a certain ex- t upon the view they took of human liie. When men in the past had begun to con- struct a theory of human nature, they had been tempted to either exaggerate the good- ness of it or the evil of it. The doctrine of the Bible, however, lay midway between those two extremes, and taught them there was something noble in man's nature, ond there must be some real goodness in human I nature, otherwise the Son of Man could not )" have become incarnate. The Bible theory was, there was a time when there was no evil, and there was a blessed time coming when evil should be no more. Evil was an intru- sion in human nature, and if he'said, there- fore, there was hope of recovery and restora- tion, so long as there remained in any hu- man being the smallest particle of goodness, there was hope for that man, and Lhe J- sibility of ultimate restoration to God. And there was hOope even for the lowest of men. were conscious that the path of restor- ation WAIS beset with difficulties. But Christianity not only proclaimed the possi- bility of restoration, but also provided the way, by the hope of forgiveness, attracting the sinner to a nobler a.nd deeper life than the one he has been leading and providing the wr." also with the power of the Spirit which would sanctify the soul. The departure of the judges to t.ieir lodg- ings at the Brooklands was witnessed by a. large concourse.

SWANSEA'S DWINDLING SHIPS. WHY LLOYDS' WON'T GRAKT SEPARATE REPRESENTATION. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND SHIPPING RATES. Swansea CHAMBER oi Commerce met on Friciav. Mr. R. L Sails presiding. Mr. J. R. LEA > er proposed that the Cham- ber send its congratulations to Lord Glan- tawe. As one of the oldest presidents this Wa6 only their duty. but they WOUld do it, he was sure, with great good-will and good- xeelmg. (Hear, hear.) Mr. H. KOLABERG seconded, and the Ciiair- snppo-rt, said his Lordship had oeen Uisernl M many ways to that institution, particularly in acting a.. delegate. he vote was passed with enthusiasm. A ter wafS read from Registry, replying to the Chamber' resolution-n fa vour direct representation on the general committer being accorded to Swansea. It appeared that the basis of reprepen ation was the Amount of shipping owned ov the ports represented, and Lloyds' stated' that tonnage owned by Newport and Swansea had decreased. Mr. Turpin said he had seen a similar letter &end to Newport, in which the figures were given, and he must honestlv say they were alarming. The drop had been* some- thing tremendous. Although it was not PVNERAJJV known bv Lloyds' Registry, he believed that three-fourths of the tonnage registered to Swansea was really OWNE^1: in London. He contended, however, that the represents', I-ON WAS not on account of ship ping at ali; they sent a representa- tive a-f. merchants, and therefore one oc-rse open to them WAS to point out- that the work Lloyds' Registry in Swansea WAS in- creasing- in the matter of repairs. It WAS Swansea's turn next to nominate the joint representative for Newport and Swansea., and whoever was appointed eould work quietly and assiduously with the of getting permanent and direct refrresentatM»n at the end of his four term. He moved a resolution to this effect, because he believed Lloyds' argument did not carry sufficient weight to justify the'r refusal. (Hear, hear.) Mr. Turpin'e resolution was carriea. Secretary reported having interviewed MR. Law LAM week AS to the Harbour Trust's present attitude with regard to the pro- posed conference on œa] SHIPPING charges. MF. Law informed him that the Trust were now able to comply with thir request, and would take part in a conference on the subject Mr Farr: When Secretary suq-gested be sbould HA instruct- ed to write the Grea.t Western Co asfcmg them tc bring together the railwav repre- sentatives, and name a suitable date.

Mr. Jenkins said he did not feei anxious to pro- ceed with such a matter as be beiieved everything had always been conducted in a regular manner at the managers' meeting. At the Par:sh Council meeting no name was mentioned. He was now. HI "-ever, in a position to state that the charges were made against the vicar. He (Mr. Jenkins.) there- upon wished to ask the vicar the follow- mg questions:—(a) Did YON ever offer Maggie John, a position as teacher on con- dition that SHE brought her brother and sister to Church?
