The estimated liabilities in the case are reported to amount to 9251 15s. 10d. The assets are expectcd to realise X171 10s. Debtor attributes his failure to "bad trade and inability to realize three houses in Morgan-road, Swansea." Mr, Thomas, who was previously adjudged a bankrupt in 1834, coin- Inanced his present business in 1891, with a capital of about £ 40 or £ 50, but previous to this he werked as a foreman joiner.

Alderman Morgan Tutton has already offered himself as a candidate for the proprietary trustee- ship made vacant on the Harbour Trust by the resignation of Mr. E. H. Bath, and so far as can be at present seen it is very unlikely that he will receive any opposition. Mr. A. P. Steeds has been named as a possible rival, but he has declared his unwillingness to stand. TESIFXRANCE MISSION. During the past week Dr. Lucas, of Ontario, Canada, a fine specimen of the temperance orator, has been conducting a gospel temperance mission at the Mbert Hall, Swansea, with considerable success.

Henry Mitchell, the man who has confessed: that he was concerned with Thomas Jones and Daniel Elliott (now in prison) in a burglary at Bow, last January, was brought up at the Thames Police-court again yesterday (Friday).

Another man, named Sharp, has since been arrested, and was yesterday (Friday) put in the box and charged, although he is under- going a sentence for another offence. Mr. Colbeck, who now appeared for the Treasury, said there was now little doubt that the man Bradley was innocent of the charge. Thomas Jones, the con- vict, gave evidence that he, Sharpe, and Mitehell committed the burglary. A remand was granted.
LLANMFL^OUNTY COURT. —— 6 THI3 DAY (SATURDAY). Before His Honour Judge Bishop. A LLANGENNECK TRESPASS CASE. His Honour was occupied for some time inrthe hearing of an adjourned case, which originally came on at the High Court, in which Mrs. Jane Hees, of the Pelican Inn, Llangennech, was the defendant, and Thomas Davies, of the same place, tho plaintiff. There was a counter-claim in the case for damage for trespass caused by the building of certain property and for rent due. The plaintiff claimed title for one James Thomas from the defendant, the latter having devised her premises to her son Griffith Thomas, and he in turn had sold it to a man named Lewis.—It was contended by the plaintiff that from the reading of the consignment a portion of the ground on which an encroachment was made was not come-, inio by the said deed. The defendant also contended that he was not liable for the building, which had been erected by the tenant for life, and, therefore, he could not be made to pay for the damage which was not com- mitted by himself; and that the defendant. could not claim for the use and occupation of the pre- mises, inasmuch as he was not in full possession thereof, and that the remedy would be to take possession of the ground,a. proposal which.was not refused by the plaintiff. Mr. D. C. Meager, in- structed by Mr. Stanley Owen, Swansea, appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Arthur Lewis, instructed by Messrs. Stead and Johnson, Llanelly, repre- sented the defendant.—His Honour ultimately desired time to consider the case, and judgment was therefore deferred.
SIN G CnXli Al)VENTU EE OF A BOY. R1 VETTING A KEY TO HIS BODY. A fin-de siecle boy has turned up in Vienna, eays the Daily Tele-frcqvi, where boys are unusally precocious. Johann Mayer, a citizen of eleven years, was a bad boy, and was prone to wander about the streets when he ought to bo at home learning his lessons or preparing for sleep. His father used to punish him vigorously in conse- quence. Johann then stole the key of the door and escaped when he expected punishment. The father found tho key, and spanked Johann until life seemed a weariness to the youngster. At last the boy hit upon a splendid expedient, as it then seemed, by iseans of which he could leave the house when he liked. He first stole the key, then he sawed the handle through, filed the two ends until they were as sharp as needle points, and drew them through the skin of his waist, Then he hammered them together, and the key hung down rom his body like a rins from the nose of a Hottentot. He was thus enabled, by standing on a chair, to open the door and leave the house when- ever ho liked, and his father sought in vain for the stolen key. This went on for weeks, and probably would have continued indefinitely had it not been for a fight which little Johanu had a few days ago with some bad boys, in the course of which he received a powerful blow, precisely where the key was. He fell senseless to the ground, and was transported to the General Hospitalof Vienna, where ho was treated by Drs. Budinger and Narath. These physicians were unable to remove the key, which had to be taken out by an instrument maker named Rutil. The boy suffered intense agony, and at first it was thought that his life was in danger. At present, however, a imarked improvement has set in, and in all probability Johann will live to fight another day.

BURIED ALIVE. A FEARFUL EXPEDIENCE. This story comes from Douglas :—A coffin bad been lowered into the grave and a few shovels full of earth thrown on it when a noise was heard. Immediately the men set about satisfying them- selves as to the cause, and the coffin was brought to the surface and opened. To the bystanders' horror and dismay it was found that the unfortu- nate man had turned in the coffin, and was then face downwards. His features were contorted and almost black, with every sign of a desperate straggle in the endeavour to force open the coffin. The only construction that can be put on the occurrence is that the unfortunate man must have been in a trance. mmwrn M — 1-
TERRIBLE ACT OF "A PASSIONATE GIRL MURDER AND SUICIDE. An inquest was held at Chertsey, Surrey, to-day (Saturday), on the bodies of Amelia and Daisy Haslett, who died on Wednesday after drinking carbolic acid, Amelia. first causing Daisy to drink the poison, and then swallowing some herself. William Haslett, the father, said Amelia, who had been in service, came home last Saturday. She then seemed comfortable and happy. An aunt, who was called, said Amelia was a weli-conducted girl, but was passionate and would not listen to advice. -—Harry Haslett, brother, said he declined to lend his sister money, and she wrote saying she did not wish to neeJiim any more. He received another letter later regretting her hasty temper. Tne jury found that Amelia destroyed herself, and her sister Daisy, while of unsound mind.
THE CORK CARDCASE. The hearing of this case was resumed at Dublin to-day (Saturday): when further evidence was given in support of plaintiff's rebutting case. Mr. James B. Johnson stated that on the 25th of November last Captain Beamish, the defendant, said to him, in the Club, u This is a terrible busi- ness," referring to the charge against Mr. Pike. Witness replied, "It is a fearful charge to make against any man, and I absolutely disbelieve it."— Joseph Pike, the plaintiff, was recalled, and denied that he had cheated in dealing or playing cards in the club, or in a railway carriage, or anywhere else.—Joseph McMullan, builder, stated that in the first week in July plaintiff's house was in his hands undergoing repairs.—Mr. Atkinson said this was the time Mr. Jennings stated that plain- tiff had invited him to dine.—The evidence then closed; and Mr. McLaughlin addressed the jury for the defendant.

WORE AND WAGES. The operative spindle makers at Dukinfield who struck work on the apprenticeship question have decided to resume work. The masters have agreed to the men's terms. Concerning the fearful distress which is pre- valent in New South Wales, a correspondent's letter says:—"You have doubtless heard much about the Colonial distress through the news- papers, but you can perhaps hardly imagine the extent of privation undergone by many of those who were among the wealthy in the land. Every- one seems now to be struggling for the mere necessaries of life. The Government has reduced all its salaries besides turning adrift hundreds of young men without any recognition of past servic.a, and the daughters of old-established families, such as S*s, H*s, &c., are keeping tea- shops, millinery establishments, or going out as domestic helps. Governesses are no longer in demand, and this revolution in affairs has, of course, told upon the hard-working class who, in their greed and ambition, greatly helped to bring on the trouble. They tried to abolish 'capita),' and could not understand that it was the source t* their own daily bread. There arc now thousands of unemployed men sleeping nightly in tho parks, while their wives and children beg for food and clothing from those who are still fighting their way against the torrent of adversity."
SHERLOCK HOLMES IN THE FLESH. DOGGING A 'BUS PICKPOCKET. A clever man is Detective Gougb, of Scotland Yard. He saw William Saunders suspiciously loitering about Charing-cross, and after a time get on an omnibus going down Whitehall. The astute detective followed in a hansom, and noticed that opposite the Horse Guards the prisoner shifted to the opposite side of the 1 omnibus, and sat next to a lady. Opposite the i Red Lion he got out, crossed over into King- street, and began to examine the contents of a purse. Gough stole up behind him, put his hand over his shoulder, took the purse, and told him that he was a police officer, and should charge him with stealing it. Saunders remarked, All right, 1 you've done me clever," and, after a short struggle, put an end to by the arrival of a mounted police- man, wont quietly to the King-street police-station. Gough then got into a hansom and started in pur- ] suit of the omnibus, which he overtook by St.. < George's Cathedral, Southwark. He spoke to the ] conductor, and found that a lady who iad, got out at Westminster bridge had lost her purse, Furnished with her description he drove ^ck/ traced-her out, and took her to King-itreet, where ahe charged the prisoner, who pleaded guilty, remarking to his captor, "FU give you*eredik for doing it." | Saunders got'three months at Sow-i street yesterday^ ',¡;

THE NEATH ABDUCTION. « IANDBRSON STILL AT LARGE HIS WIFE LIVING AT NEATH. MARRIED AT THIRTEEN. HER SAD STORY. The abduction of the child, Lizzie Jane Wil- liams, by the man Andei'so.i on Whit-Monduy. has excited a very great d:ll of interest in Neath and district. It has assumed somewhat unusual proportions because of ths important facis an in- quiry into the career of the kidnapper has disclosed. Our Neath representative h3; succeeded in tracing the whereabouts of Anderson's wife, who resides in a smail cottage on the Green. She is now only 17 years of ago, and has been married for 4 years. According to her siory, sh is kiunanped by Anderson, whose rigi?»- i/ame is Nttschke, some four years ago in Glasgow. Her father was a night watchman. Judging from her appearnce now, she must then hive been a very pretty child. Nitschke married her at a registry office in Glasgow, and two years later the ceremony was repeated at Cardiff. In reply to questions, she stated that the child, who was known as Ander- son's daughter was obtained by him at Cardiff. She has no parents, and was originaliy adopted at Ca,rlisle, aiter which she was adopted by other people respectively at Newport and Car- diff. The people who had bad her in their care had, with one exception, died. Mrs. Nitschke is living with some peop'c on the Green, Neath, who,out of compassion, are keeping her. —BM—MMHW———
WELSH DISESTABLISHMENT. LIBERAL CONFERENCE AT RHYL. A conference of delegates of the North Wales r Liberal Federation, held at Rhyl yesterday (Friday), occupied four hours in discussing the prospects of the Welsh Disestablishment Bill, and the position of the four independent members. Resolutions were passed in favour of a joint coi ference with the South Wales Federation on the subject, approving of the principles of the Bill, but taking exception to some of its details, ar.d calling upon the Welsh parly as a whole to ad.ipl an independent line of policy, owing to the refusal of the Government to undertake that the Bill should be carried through the House of Com- mons this session, or in an autumn session.—A meeting was held at night, at which the four "revoltera" spoke, and the fol owing resolution was carried with four That this meeting approves of the conduct of Messrs. D. Lloyd-George, M.P., Frank Edwards, M.P., Mr. D. A. Thomas, M.P., and Mr. J. Herbert Lewis, M. P., in the protest they have made against the refusal of the Government to give the assurances required by the resolution ot the Welsh members passed in September last, and subsequently confirmed by the North Wales Federation of the National Council." —Afterwards another i esolution was carried, call- ing upon the 27 Welsh members to ad pt the same course as that taken by the members present. OPINIONS OF THE LONVON PRESS. The energetic four and their friends, says the Daily Chroniclc in a quiet tone, are quite within their rights to endeavour to bring the constituen- cies to their way of thinking, and thus to move the body of the party. But it docs seem a pity that a little impatience, in the teeth of all reasonable assurances, s ould run the question into very obvious risks of ship- wreck in sight of porl The thing has gone too far, perhaps, for easy accommodation, and we can only hope that the cool censa of the people of Wales will prevail over the gust of passion which temporarily obscures the vision of the four dis- sentients. The Daily Nwvs is even more conciliatory. In its principal article it says Sow we have again and again expressed our entire sympathy with the objects of the Welsh members, even of 3ie four who seem inclined to push their policy to an extreme. If the Liberal Government could be supposed to have no real desire to carry a measure for the disestablishment and disendpw- ment of the English Church in Wales, wo could quite sympathise with the Welsh representa- tives who declared that the time had come for in- dependent action. Even if it could be showe or could be striously believed that the Government, although haying. a sort of platonic regard for Welsh disestablishment ware in no parti- cular baste to manifest that regard, we eou.d cordially sympathise with Welshmen who declared that such a platonic affection was good for nothing. We are not surprised that they snould bring to bear all the pressure they can. We find no fault with them for doing all that. We freely admit that it is their business and their duty t) do it. But we cannot see what they can possibly expect to gain from a course of action which migut at soire sudden crisis put the Liberal Government out oi office."

I COITRES P5 ) Ñ 1) EiN CE ZO R CHAPEL, NEATH. TO 11IB EDITOR OF THE "SOUTH WALES DAILY POST." Sir,—In the Herald and Xealk Gazette there appeared recently a short letter under the above heading, tigned James Ed ware's, wliieh was meant its a reply to a letter of mine which appeared in the previous issi.e. letter to which I refer contained an attempt to slander me in the eyes of the public. I, natur- all replied in deft-nee, but it was nit published. 1. therefore, through your courtesy, take this opportunity of pL c ng my case before the public. In an article which appeared in the Idirl- Glamorgan Herald. 24th, it was stated that the number of members of Zosr Chapel thai date was 410. being exactly 100 moie than the present pastor commenecd his t:utx B. in 1333, 'J fcat statement is totally incorrect ■ • the commencement of 1333 the number ot mem- btrs was 437, w hile at the comment ement of tie present year the number was 419, which made li iess instead of 1C0 more. Up to Match 24th. there Las been an addition of 15 or .6. A feeble attempt was made to explain this crroneous state- ment by the writer of the letter referred to. who said that it should have read that tbe increase was 100 since the previous pastor IYle late ROY, John Matthews) commenced his duties, instead of since the present pastor commenced his duties. To me this is a wonderful statement. Readers should know that the date ci.o;ea was the year 47 years ago, It stated in the article also that the communicants were 440. within 15 of the number, gathered in by the able ministry of ti>e first pastor, the late llev. Daniel Griffiths— which, of course, would mean 456. The history of this wonderful minister, which I have before me at present, a.nd written by me 30 years ago, quite a sufiicicnt guarantee that the number had not decreased at the time of his death, April 1st, 1846. As stated before, in the YC:1.r lo47 the Hev. J. Matthews commenced his ministry, and in the short space of twelve months, more or less, .here was, according to the writers statement, a decrease of 116; that is, even if there wa; not a single I member added to the church, as converts, or 1 y leter from any other church or\churche- Ie me ask the readers, is there one that will take ti a feeble i.ttemy tto correct to ie .rue ? J ~l L 11 1.U, I A"3"n so that your reaaeis n.ay oe Lilurvuglajy conuinced, let me tell them there is not a single scrap of paper in the possession of the church, or of any known person, to substantiate the two state- ments--namclv, the number of members at the time of the Rev. D. Griffiths, also the number when the Rev. J. Matthews, commenced his ministry, Where the statements have been got, from is a mystery. Let them be produced .One thing in connection with the two periods can be substantiated by hundreds to-day-iianiely, that in the time of the two Faslors mentioned, if seats were not secured fully 15 minutes before the specified time to commence the service, the un- fortunates would have to be satisfl-d withstanding on the aisles and staircase. This was chiefly at Sunday night services. As the writer has the wonderful knowledge mentioned, maybe that lie, will be able to inform :the readers whether there had bceW an addit on to the Church in the spacc of time that the Church was without a minister. If so, 1 will a k him what became of them, together with the 116 in such a abort space of time. I do not pretend to know the death-rate of the church at the time. Had it been in the year 1349, when hundreds were taken away in the dis- trict by the cholera, I would cot be at all surprised at the miraculous decrease. Again, tho writer says that I write with an ill- feeling towards the church and himself. I say, nothing of the kind. My motives are justice and the truth. Why should I write with an ill-feeling towards the church in which I have been brought up from childhood, the church of which I have bean a member for a period of 33 years, and the church which my parents attended from its formation, until their death ? Had the writer the love and respect towards the church that I have, there would have been a different spirit in the Church to-day. There would have beon no need of an article for puffing it up. Again the writer says, i his opinion, I am not worthy of any notice what- ever. I thank him for for his compliment. To be persecuted by professors of religion as I have been this last 15-months, and that for upholding justice and tmth, and repeAting words wbich were spoken to me, and to many others, by one of our departed and well-known and most respected old friends. The public have been given to understand that within twelve months space was denied me in two Welsh papers, the Tysl and the Celt, to pub- lish my slanderous expressions respecting the church. The writer should be more cautious be- fore publishing his "slanderous expressions" t 0- wards me. There is more slander in the twe it. lines which make up his letter than I have use I wrote to the Tyst about June last, and the very letter I wrote, with an addition to it, 1 have pub- lished in the Welsh language. I have never sent a single sentence the Celt within the space of four years. In conclusion, let me remind the respon- sible person in connection with the article, and the writer of the letter about me, that the truth will stand the keenest and most searching investigation. ineatli.

GENTLEMEN,—T am happy to inform you that I have received great benefit by using "Gwilym Evans' Bitters," after suffering a long time from Biliousness. I had become very weak, and so nervrus that if any one spoke in a loud tone I was much frightened. I have been so bad that I was not able to eat for a week at a time. I tiied "Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bit- ters," and the first bottle did me a deal of good, so I got another, and am happy to say I am now quite well. I shaH always speak well of these "Bitters" to ail persons that I know. Yours truly, (Mrs.) BAXTER Advt.
