SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST 'I A SWANSEA WORKMAN. CONVICTED OF COMMON ASSAULT. At Swansea Police-court this (Friday) aiornine (before Dr. Ilall and Mr. E. L. Forester) James Jones, a drayman, was charged with being drunk and indecently assaulting Mabel Radciiffe, a little girl, ten years of age, in a stable at the back of I Dillwyn-street. From evidence tendered it appeared that on Thursday evening com- plainant was with two other little girls in a lane by the Builder's Arms, when tiie defendant called her into a stable and kissed her several times the defendant called her into a stable and kissed her several times Kate Barr, a little girl who was with com- plainant on t ie evening in question, said she ] saw complainant and defendant go into the stable, and heard complainant cry, and the defendant said, "If you cry 111 let you out." It appears that defendant worked at the stable, and he urged that the girl had asked him for some rope, and he went into the stable to try and find her a piece. She went in also, and while there the wind blew the door to, with the result that she became frightened.— The Bench found the prisoner guilty of common assault, and fined him 20s, or 14 davij,* imprisonment.
ST.llATTHEWSCHURCa The annual social meeting in connection with the Welsh (St. Matthew's) Church, Swansea, which took place yesterday (Thurs- day) evening at the Temperance flail, in every way reflected the growing spirit and enthusiasm which has attended the progress of the church itself during the past Sew years, and the popular vicar, the Rev. T. L: Richard, must feel in every way satisfied by the emphasis which the proceedings laid upon the growing prosperity of St. Matthew's upon the growing prosperity of St. Matthew's Church. The gatherings took the form of a tea meeting in the afternoon, followed bv an evening concert. At the former a large attendance of the members and congregation of the church partook of an excellent tea. The tables were tastefully decorated with a number of handsome plants and cut flowers, and in addition to the Vicar and the Rev, J. Simon, the following ladies assisted in serving up the eatables, Iv'lrs T. L. Richard, Mrs W. (J. Walters, Mrs Atkins, Mrs Roberta, Mrs Price, Mrs. Jones; Mrs. Thomas (Gerald-street) and the Misses Richards, Edwards, and Davies. The concert in the evening was in everv way a success. The whole of the credit for the musical entertainment is due to Mr. Seth Phillips, the organist of St. Matthews, who succeeded in arranging a programme which was acknowledged by ali to be of an unusually good character. The programme included items by Mr, John Clement, C.It.A.M., Miss Sarah Thomas, T.C.L., Mr. 'lOIU Griffiths, Mr. Ben Thomas, Misy Williams, St, Matthew's Male Voice Party,:Mr. William H. Jones, Mr. Ben Davies, and Mr. H. Rogers.
THE GEM OF CUE GOLD MINE. Thisprotiaising West Australian Company's I shares have just been introduced to the London market, where a large number of them have changed hands during the last few days. The entire capital of the coneern amounts to only 1:45,000, which is extremely moderate, and therefore all the better for shareholders. A great amount of work has been done on the mine, which has been thoroughly proved; in fact, there is no speculation as to its future. It is simply a question of the scale on which operations "are carried on that will govern the gold output. I Both Mr. W. H. Gale, Mayor of Cue—from which place the mine is distant two miles— and Mr. Norman Whitelaw, formers suner- intendent of prospecting under the Victorian Government, ha, e reported in very flattering terms on the prospects of the undertaking. A cable received states that a crushing of just over 30 tona has yielded 45ozs. 12 dwte., which is more than satisfactory. The shares are being dealt in at about 5s. each, but are not Roing to remain mauy days at anything like Buct3 a price. I
A concert was given last evening by the Temple Male Voice Party (Messrs. B.

Before the close, Mr. T. H.

The Temple Male Voice Party has well maintained the traditions of the trade tiley represent, and Swansea is proud to have in her midst a band of young people so ready to siive of their limited leisure so much assistance to any and e'.ery deserving object. Mr. Bell, the leader of the choir, suitably responded, and the part song, Come, let us march," brought a mebt en joyable programme to a I "l°se.

THE LOSS OF THE WASP. WHY NOT SEND DOWN GOVERN- MENT DIVERS? QUESTIONS FOR THE BOARD OF TRADE. MR. BURNIE ASKED TO TAKE THE MATTER UP. The difficulties experienced in getting down to the wreck of the Wasp, which all everybody now knows lies ten fathoms beneath the surface 01 the channel, to tha W.S.W. of the Mixen Sauds, has given rise to a good deal ef discussion in snipping circles in Swansea, as to whether in such a case it is not the duty of the Board of Trade to send down official divers with the object of producing evidence at the Beard of Trade inquiry to be held on the 24th inst. It is necessary for the captain of the surviving vessel to make depositions to the Custom House authorities within 24 hours of his coming ashore. Should there be any survivors from the sunken ship it is usual for the Board of Trade to hunt them up and receive their depositions albc. The object of the latter proceeding is, of course, to enable the commissioner and the nautical assessors who preside at the Board of Trade Inquiry to arrive at a fair aod impartial decision as to whether blame is to be attached to the officials of either of the colliding vessels; and if so, to which. Upon this decision depends to a great extent whether an Admiralty aetion is to take place. The question now being asked—and asked we must tdtnit with a large apiount of reason- ableness-is, why should not the Board of Trade take all possible steps to get alii evidence likely to have an important bearing upon the case, especially when, as in the present instance, none of the crew of the sunken tug are alive to tell the tale. At the present time the only evidence in the hands oC the Board of Trade officials is that given either by the officials of the Severn. Now in the present case it is admitted that the question as to whether the terrible fate of the crew of the Wasp was their own fault or that of the Severn officials, may, to a great extent, be decided by finding the position and angle at which the Wasp was struck. Evidence of this < h&racter must, therefore, have a most important bearing en the case. A strong feelings being expressed in some quarters that the matter should be brought before the attention of the Government by asking questions thereon in the House of Commons, The full importance of the present case is seen when it is remembered that tbe tug represented almost the sole savings of the poor fellows who lost their lives, and that as a consequence their wives and families are now well-nigh destitute. By getting all possible evidence the Board of Trade would only be dealing justly towards the widows and fatherless children. We are glad to hear, however, that a well-known Swansea captain has already written to Mr. Burnie, M.P., asking him te put certain questions to the President of the Board of Trade with reference to the loss of the Wasp, and emphasing the advis- ability of the Board of Trade sending down official divers in such cases. PROPOSAL TO START A SUBSCRIP- TION LIST. Fairplay writes:—" In view of the des- titute state of the widows and children of the poor fellows, our townsmen, who lost their lives in the Wasp, would it not be advisable to start a subscription list for their aid ? I will go further, 81r. and ask whether it is not our bounden duty to do our very utmest to alleviate that misfortune which has so over- whelmed them. I feel certain that if you would devote even a small amount of space in your columns to so deserving a cause you would earn the thanks of every sympathetic person in the town. I would gladly subscribe my mite, and I feel certain that hundreds of others would give acceraing to their ability." acceraing to their ability." [Our answer is that the columns of the Daily Post are always open to assist these whom ill-fate has caused to suffer through no fault oE tneir own. If the public of Swansea are ready and willing to respond to this deserving eause, our columns and our services are free for tbe purpose, and any subscriptions forwarded to us will be acknowledged and steps taken to see that thev reach the proper quarter.

NEWSBOYS AND THE POLICE. SELLING PAPERS AT NIGHT. CHAIRMAN PAYS THE FINE. At Swansea Poiiee-eourt on Thursday morniag a. young boy named William Jene&, ef 40, Little Madoe-street, was summoned for selling newspapers by outcry in Walter-read on the 7th inst.—The case was proved bv Poliee constable Cross who said the lad was crying out the papers at 10.45 p.m. — The chief-constable said the police might have brought a charge against the mother for allowing the lad to be out at that late hour selling papers. There had been several complaints of late by people who were disturbed at a. late hour hy these street cries, and he thought it would be better to bting the charge in the present form. Patients at the Hospital were often disturbed by these late cries,—Mr. J.C. Vye-i arminter, the chairman ef the Bench, addressing the boy's mother, said it was not allowable to ery papers either by day er night, but as she was a widow and had a large family they would euly fine her Is. She must know that she might have been summoned tor allowing the child to be cut late,- Mrs. Jones advanced to the table to pay the money, but the chairman observed Never mind that now," and allowed her to depart with the shilling still in her possession. -1

A special meeting of the Neath T«wn Council was held at the Gwyn Hall, Neath, on Thursday merning, the mayor presiding, at which a communication was received from the Education Department in reference to the deficiency of public school accommoda- tion in tin; borough. The deficiency arose in consequence of notice given by the managers of the British schools for their discontinuance, involving a deerease of 400 in the School accommodation in the borough.

NONCONFORMIST DISPUTE AT GLYN-NEATH. ALL ABOUT A GRAVE. Things have not gene smoothly with ti e Glyn-Ne^th independents since the spilt oi two years ago. The Hey. D. Glyn Davies, who was then the paster, established a chapel on his own account, and this, it is said, engendered f eeli ngs which have not apparently wholly subsided. Friends of a gentleman, who died this week, expressed a wish that his body should be buried in the ground attached to the parent chapel. They were members of the new chapel, and it is said on I I their behalf, that they purchased the grave in question, many years ago. The grave was dug by Davies, the sexton, on Friday last, in accordance with orders he subsequently re- filled it. Early on Saturday morning, however, some colliers who sympathised with the deceased's friends re-opened the grave, and it I was bricked,and the body interred therein en Saturday afternoon. It is stated that an action-at-law will probably result.
ALLEGED FRAUD IN BREWING. I INLAND REVENUE PROSECUTION i, AT SWANSEA. I At the Swansea Police-court on Thursday morning, (before Messrs. J. C. Vye-Parminter, J. G. Hall, J. Lewis, and W. J. Rees), the landlord of the Corner House, BrynnyfrycL John Daniel, who has a licence for brewing beer on his premises, was summoned for offences against the Inland Revenue Act on December 3ht and I January 1st last. Mr. Hawkins, solicitor, Somerset House, supported the information and Mr. It, T. Leyson represented the dnfendanh Mr. Hawkins said there were two charges, but as both related to the same brewing tuey could be taken together. The first charge was that on December 31 last the defendant entered in his brewing book that he had used six bushels of saait for that day, whereas he had actually used seven bushels of malt and 71bs. of sugar. The charge with respect to January 1 was that defendant entered in his brewing book that the gravity of the mort was 1,048 degrees, whereat it was 1,054 degrees. The proceedings were taken under the 20th Section and 2nd Sub-section of the Inland Revenue Act, 1880, which repealed the old duty on malt and substituted a duty on tbe beer which was produced in the course ef brewing. The Act provided that the brewer should make accurate entries ef sttould make accurate entries of material used in a special book called the brewing book, and penalties were prescribed for wrongful entries. When defendant was spoken to he said he only added yea.8t and then went otf for the day. He used only six bushels of Aialt, Later on he told the supervisor he might have used seveu bushels, and that one of the sacks which usually held three bushels miyht have bad four bushels in it. It was, however, the duty of the brewer to weigh the malt, which defendant had not done. He pleaded that his saccharometer was in error. It was so. a little, but not sufficiently to account for a difference in gravity of six degrees. Having regard to the use of sugar, when it was not entered at all, having regard to the use of seven bushels when only aix were entered, asd having regard to the false declaration of gravity on the top of all, it could scarcely indicate accident, but must show deliberate fraud. Although the loss of duty mignt be small, the provisions they asked the Bench to enforce were of great importance. There were tiC or 70 small brewers in the Neath supervisor's district, scattered about, and fraud was very difficult to detect. On that account he asked for a deterrent penalty. Charles James Hedges, Inland Revenue officer, Landore, detailed his visit to defen- dant's house, and James laylor. supervisor of Neath, corroborated as to what took place on the defendant's premises, and said defen- dant admitted his wrong in not weighing the malt before using it,—By Mr. Leyson He did not think four bushels could be put in a three bushel sack. He had seen an invoiee from Messrs. Hancock and Co., to defendant, and at the bottom it specified an extra bushel for ''A Christmas-box." Charles Procter, analyst, of Somerset Heuse, having also gi-en evidence, Mr. Leyson addressed the magistrates. He said defendant worked by rule of thumb, and was not a brewer of scientific attainmenfs. On this occasion defendant brewed almost in the dark, and put in a sack of malt that was intended for sonteone else. Thou his saceharometer was at fault, and did not register properly. As regarded sugar, the defendant had never used any, and what there was in the was from the malt. He should ask the bench to say that there was no fraud, but simply a mistake. William Bonham, innkeeper and brewer, Landore, said he ordered some malt from Messrs, Haneeek and Co. on December 27th. The malt was believed to be brewed. He generally used four bushels, and thought he did on this occasion; bat when it came out lie found the quantity was only three bushels, the quantity sonsequently being lower than usual.—By Mr. Hawkins: He only found out it waa a three-bushel sack when brewing. He had only been charged for three bushels by the maltsters. Mr. Lesser, traveller to Messrs Hancock and Co., said he had adjusted the error in supplying the mait to Daniels and Bonham, The error was the drayman's. The Bench retired to consider the case. On returning into court the chairman said the bench were of opinion that the two cases had been proved against the defendant, and he was fined £ 5€ind costs in each case. Mr. Hawkins asked for costs. Air. Leyson said the other side eould get enough out of the fiues. .the Magistrates' Clerk said the total fines and costs would be £1488 lOd. j

BOXING. THOMAS V. SLASHER Slasher, a Green-hill lad, and Thomas, a young Hafod boxer with a good reputation, met at Mrs. Samuels' Saloon last (Thursday) evening, and a good contest was the result, t Thomas has won a few fights, and Slasher appeared in the ring with good prospects. Six three-minute rounds was the limit, and the gloves were feur-ouneed. ri he first three rounds proved very exciting, notable for the heavy hitting on both sides, Thomas if any- thing having the best of it, having his man against the ropes frequently, Thomas, how- I ever, gave in Wl:en time was called for the fourth round.

There is a capital article on Cricket, and t how to play it," while in un introductory article oil local cricket probpects the editor goes for a Corporation (presumably the Swansea County Council) baidheaded, for not encouraging cricket in the Swansea parks. Hear, hear. The following wail comes from far-off Nealh irom one interested in the Melyn Club: "ll's all very well for St. Jude's to try and make their victory as brilliant as possible, but their ground is a perfect disgrace. If a person is anxious for a black eye he can have one by phiymg there in the short space ef 30 minutes, and be lucky if he escape without losing lás helld. OU, it was cruel: How they got inio the league I cannot understanJ." Now then for the champion saints' reply.
iiLXKIKG. F.gerton, the St. Helen s Harriers champion, is to ke seen daily training at the Swansea, Cricket Field. The Swansea Harriers hold their 120 yards club handicap on Thursday ween. There are nuaierous entries. By the way, the pace at the mile race at Llanellv on Saturday last was vers flow, and reminded one of a go-as-you-please. One of the two founders of the fct. Helen's Harriers ,JO\\ resides in Cardiff, The other "C' 0 remains in the town of the club s birth. s there are ro sports in Swansea on Wiiiibun-Monday it is likely that Swansea foot-runners will either take part in the Cardiff. Newport, or Stroud sports. At the Cardiff United Sports, 1 j. Evans and Wallace Evans were seen at tneir best, but Wallace was unfortunate in just manag- ing to lose first position in the quarter-mile. Cliff Bovven, the flyer of the Llaneliy football Club, succeeded in carrying off a double event at the Llaneilv Sports ou Satur- day last, It was never expected he could manage to win the quatter-mileand 120 yards sprint. Some spldtfdici perfOrniiriees were seen at fetaiaford Bridge on Saturday, the occasion being the second spring meeting of the Lou- don Athletic Club. A. R. Downer ran 120 vards in Phillips' and Bradley's record time ot 11 4-5scc. ;and won a 200 Yards record race in time quoted as 19 7-10sec., a tenth of a second better than Peliin^'s record. E. C. Bredin won the Half-Mile Handicap in Imin. 55tiec., which is only three-fifths of a second slower than Cross's record. H. A. Munio, who is fast approaching a veteran's vears, beat Lutyens in the Mile Challenge Cup in 4mill. 20 2-bsee., just two seconds worse than George's record, and ran a mile and a halt in 6min. 58sec., which is within 4 2-5sec. of Sid. Thomas a record. CYCLING. The "Wheeler" writesThe fact that Rosser, of Swansea, was a competitor in the ,great scoi-el) frc)iu Bordeaux to Paris, is ample reason wiiy 1 should give a few.particu- lars ef the race, aud quite sufficient justifica- tion for believing that a few details would be interesting to the wheelmen of Swansea. Eighteen cyclists-all gool1 men and true— started off the marls at Bordeaux at S.30 o'clock on Monday morning in the presence of all immeuce crowd of people -mostly Frenchmen, F presume. The first batch to arnve at Lebeurne, after covering 25 kilometres, consisted of Tampiet, Prevost, and Fischer, Three minutes later Rosser and Carlisle showed up, tue former having fallen. His fellow Englishman had waited for him, and consequently had lost a few minutes. At the 100 kilometres otark Rosser was behind the others, having met with per- sistent ill-luck, and in falling had bruised his arm and teg. 1 might also mention the fact that for a great part of the distance he was without pacemakers. At the Velodrome de 130 Seme, wtiere the arrival was to ta.ke place, a big reception was given to Gerger, tbe winner of the amateur section. After an intervaioj a little more tiiuu au hour Prevo",t arrived second man, and then an hour and a hali later Carlisle, the third man, made his appearance, apparently fagged out," his time was 2oh. i.4imn. &j see". Rosser, on account of the injuries sus- tained in falling did not finish. The winner —Gerger, is an Austrian. He is 28 years of age, of medium height, and on the whole is thoroughly well built. The dis- tance from Bordeaux to Paris is 37U miles. The contest is described in the cycling press as the most representative long-distance race ever held, and this being so, it is exceedingly regrettable that the bwansea man siiouid have been prevented by bad luck alone from making a better shew, as lie undoubtedly would have done had net the fates been so unkind iot\ar(is him.

THE ORANGE-STREET FIGHT I CRITICAL < JONDITION OF THE I INJURED MAN. I STATEMENT BY THE ACCUSED. I Public interest in the serious staeet, brawl which occured in Orange-street on Wednesday evening is maintained in the fullest degree. Stock, the injured man, who lies at the Hospital, is in great dauger, and the gravest apprehensions conceraing him are entertained by the asedical men ana his family and his friends in the town. The full details of the occurrence which we pub- lished yesterday (Thursday) morning has had the effect of enlisting public sympathy for the effect of enlisting public sympathy for Davies, who is general iy believed to have acted purely in Mif.defence. The bedside of the injured man was visited by his wife I yesterday, but he was not then able to recog- nise her, and she was deeply distressed. THE ACCUSED'S STATEMENT. John Henry Davies, who remains in the Guildhall cells, is said to hate expressed his inability to believe that Stock is so seriously hurt "8 to be in danger of iosing his life, and says he will not believe it until he is allowed to see for himself. He had no quarrel with Stoek, ana in fact did not want to fight with him. When challenged, 'I however, and then set upon by Dalton and afterwards by Stock, he had to uefend him at once* He never attempted to follow uphis blow, being content wifb keeping Stock off. We ought to heve landed at Milford Hayea, said Da vies te a friend, alluding to the voyage they had completed on the pre- vious day, and if we had only landed there instead of here L should never have met these men, and this srouble woubd hot have happened. I don't beleive it possible that Stock will dio. STOCK'S CONDITION THIS MORN- ING. We learn from the Hospital just before going to press that the unfortunate man Stock remains in much the same condition, that is to say, he is semi-conscious. He knows where he is, but is not yet able to give any account of what transpired at the time of the fight. As soon as the doctors consider him sufficiently comseious to be able to give I' any account whatever of the proceedings which took place inside and outside the Lord Jersey publie-heuse the magistrates' clerk and a magistrate will be summoned to attend at his bedside to take his depositions. The medical men are still unable to hold out any hope of his recovery, the fracture of the base of the skull being one which, it i3 said, pre- of the skall being one which, it is said, pre- cludes any operation for the relief of the compression on the braiu.
