A briekmaker, named Pope Howitt, 24 years of age, died :;&J, his residence, 24, Ber- tram-street, Roath, Cardiff, on Tuesday from injuries received about three, weeks sine* and which in all probability will form charge of manslaughter against three persons, of whose whereabouts the police are now making inquiries. It appears thai. Howitt called a.t the Salutation Publiohouse, Rutc- street. for a g-!a.>8 of beer. In. the bar wore three men, who, apparently mistaking Howitt for a sailor, asked him to stand treat. He refused, some words followed, and then oiift of tltem struck him such a blow on the i'yjee that he was felted to the ground. A row ensued* the police were- eai'^d iu, and ail tlie parties turned into the sWeef. rtüwit4 afterwards proceeded on his way home, when it is stated that the three men followed him and then challenged Howitt to fight. A fight took place in Bute-terrace, but rt is ;siso tlleged that when knocked down by Ills opponent, and while on the ground, Huvr-t was kicked by the i;a.V0 other men.

Howitt got up and walked home, and on the follo-v.ng day went to the Cardiff Infirmary, where the wO'i'id* on the he.1d were dressed.
