Cardiff Sanity Case. r LADY IN THE WORKHOUSE HOSPITAL. REMARKABLE LETTER. Some little time ago we published an inter- -ssting story of an adventure which happened to a Cardiff solicitor and a lady client. In the ex-parte account of the affair which then appeared it was stated that the lady, who is of a well-to-do family, being: the daughter of an English clergy- man and the grand-daughter of an archdeacon. claimed a reversion of £5.000. She alleged that Her relatives were endeavouring to prove that the was mentally incapacitated, and that efforts had been made to confine her in a lunatic asylum. She accordingly consulted Mr Herbert Samuel, a Cardiff solicitor, and that gentleman accompanied her to a watering-place to inter new the relatives. Certain exciting incidents took place, and in he end Mr Samuel's client was sent to a place of concealment, there to await legal develop- ments. We have now received from the heroine of the story a further instalment of her curious history as contained in the following letter :— The Workhouse,- Shepherdess-walk, N. Saturday, September 29. 1906. Matters have now reached a crisis and I call ■upon you as having shown an interest in my case to let the Welsh public know the treachery I have suffered. On Thurs- day night I was leaving my lodg- ings in Clarernent-square, London, when I was seized by a detective and a police official, taken to the police station, and subsequently Brought to the Workhouse, and confined in tha nental ward amongst 18 chattering lunatics. On mv arrival I was taken by the nurses and bathed, and my head washed, and a regulation pauper chemise and coat put on me, and put in a bed between two lunatics. I vou. is this treatment of me meant to jaake me really what they wish me to be—in- sane 1 Can you not imagine the shock I ex- perienced on Thursday night to find myself in he Workhouse ? I call on you to take steps to prevent these diabolical plots to continue. I produced my doctor's certificate at the police station, but he lws evidently had more effect. A specialist from Harley -street states that he came at the request of my people, and he told ne oÎ my mother's great aversion to my en. gagement, and their object is evidently to sign me as insane to prevent me borrowing on my feveraion, and so marrying. To say I am quite cool and collected in spite my curious surroundings must carry Weight, is the first Bight surrounded on all sides by shattering maniacs is enough to turn many a itrong brain. The thick tin mug and enamel plates were a dreadful trial to my rather fastidious nature, but thanks to the doctor and my especial nurse, who spoils me. all that is altered. The food I get is plentiful and nice, and so far neither my appetite or my health has suffered from the confinement I am subjected to. I had leven visitors yesterday and had hoped to be at liberty, as neither the doctor here or ihe guardians could detect any j-race of in- sanity in me- The magistrate who had the casting vcte of releasing wished to thoroughly investigate the matter before releasing me, so I believe I am to be detained till Monday. I have many privileges. I have been put in the most isolated bed in the ward, and am allowed to read and write. Nurse Riches is aot only one of the kindest and most capable tf nurses she is also very pleasing to look at, nd my detention bere is rendered almost bearable by her kindness and sweetness to me. The night nurse is also extremely nice, and ihe also spoils me. One of the Guardians /gave me his button hole, and they I three shook hands with me. and hoped see me agam in different society. Had it rested with them aad the doctor here, I should have had my liberty yesterday. Still if J am patient all will come right. The chaplain "isited me yesterday, and lent me his New Testament, which I prize, for I know the God if the fatherless will not forsake me. To make things a little more depressing, on ony first night one of the poor souls passed to ihe land where she will once more regain her reason, and seeing the shell taken out got on jay spirits, and I wept bitterly, fancying that A, too, might die here in a pauper's bed. I don't want any sympathy I want justice done to me. When I regain my liberty I shall some to Cardiff. For one of my breeding and position to be thrust with people of inferior birth, and whose manners are anything but refined, is one of the most brutal deeds that could be devised by the mind of man. Were It possible I should like to interview one of your feporters and be photographed in my pauper garb. Thank goodness, my dear nurse gave me a lovely hot bath. and I was eventually allowed hairpins, an unheard of luxury in this ward. Half the inmates chatter all night. Some ■are sick. one or two suicidal. I am proud of the grit which enables me to look on the sunny side and say Patience."
DETERMINED LYDNEY LOVER. Chained With Threatening His II Sweetheart. A remarkable story of a lover's attempt to .'egain the affections of a iormer sweetheart was related at Bristol Police Court on Tuesday, when a charge of ucragthreats by letter to a domestic servant named Emmaline Tranter was preferred against a Lydney miner named Alfred Jones. The case first came before the court oh Monday, when a detective gave evi. dence of the arrest of Jones. Asked whether it was true he had threatened the girl, he re- plied, Well, I did write it and I mean it, too 1 shall never allow anyone else to have her, for I will kill her and myself too." Emma- line Tranter, the prosecutrix, said she had kept company with defendant for some time, but on August 15th they quarrelled, and she told him she wished to have nothing more to do with him. In July he wrote a letter which contained a threat to kill her and himself. She came to Bristol as parlourmaid, and there received further letters from defendant. On returning to Shropshire defendant came to see her, and stayed at her relatives'. They re- mained on affectionate terms until witness heard something," and she then told him to go. He went, but returned later to the house. though she would not grant him an interview. She heard him say he wished he were dead. Afterwards he left Shropshire, and went to Queen-street. Lydney, to work at a colliery. He wrote to her to the effect it was not his fault they parted, but they would meet again. There was only one letter that really contained a distinct threat, and that she received during her stay in Shropshire it stated :—" If I cannot have you I will do for .myself and you." In September she returned to Bristol, and defendant came to see her. In consequence of what he said she told her master she was afraid of defendant, and the poHce were communicated with. The Magis- trates' Clerk Are you really afraid of him ?— Witness I am. The Clerk (to defendant) Did you mean what you said ?—Defendant: No. I only said it to frighten her. The Chair- man What are your intentions for the future ?—Defendant: If she Jikes to keep on with me T will do the same. (Laughter.) The Clerk It seems a very silly thing to keep worrying the girl. She's not the only girl you know. (Laughter.) Defendant: She's the only girl met up to now that I like. The Clerk (to the girl): You are quite firm in saying you will not have him ?—Witness (emphatic- ally) Yes. I never want to see him again. The Chairman, in binding the defendant over to keep the peace for 12 months, warned him that if he molested the girl again it would be a serious matter for him.

Given to Entertaining. NEWPORT CASHIER'S AFFAIRS. Unfulfilled Legacy Expectation. Albert Harrison Duffieid, cashier and secre- tary, St. John's-road, Newport, underwent his public examination at the Newport Bankruptcy Court on Tuesday. The statement of affairs revealed a deficiency of £250 7s 5d. Heavy expenses, illness in the family, and heavy payments to money lenders were assigned as the causes of his bankruptcy. The Official Receiver inquired as to debtor's dealings with money lenders, and he replied that he bor- rowed £ 2o or £.30, and had to repay £50. He had paid a portion of it. The Official Receiver produced several bills which had been made out by tradesmen against the debtor, and quoted from a fishmonger s account showing that several largs quantities of salmon had been supplied to debtor at Is 8d per lb., as well as a lobster, four partridges, wild ducks and pheasants. Were all these things necessary ? Debtor said he did not think they were all ordered for him. A Voice I hope the lobster didn't cause indigestion. (Laughter.) In repiy to Mr Digby Powell, who repre- sented the debtor, the latter said the salmon was purchased by the doctor's orders for bis wife. The Official Receiver read extracts from bills for six bottles of Scotch whiskey, a dozen pints of claret, and other wines, supplied to debtor's order, the total amount being over £40. Was all this necessary "t" The Registrar said a good deal would depend on the period covered. The Official Receiver: Were you given to entertaining very much ?—Yes.

Father's Support Withdrawn: Percy Wilkins Sansome, dentist, High-street, Newport, gave his deficiency as £403- He attributed this to the withdrawal of his father's support.

He added that his mother left estate to the extent of about £ll.OOO, but this had to be divided between ten children Examination adjourned. Henry Webb, baker, Caroline-street, New- port, showed a deficiency of £40. which he attributed to insufficient capital and losses. Examination adjourned.
PORTHCAWL ENCAMPMENTS; Arrangements for Next Year. Mr W. J. Griffin, J.P., presided at a meet- ing of Porthcawl District Council on Monday night. A letter was read from the brigade major of the Worcestershire and Warwickshire Bri- gade accepting the offer of the Council to place the Locks Common at the disposal of the brigade for their annual encampment during the first week of August, 1907, subject to the approval of Mrs M. H. Gordon (the lady of the manor). The deputy clerk stated that he had written Major Pibton, Pontypcol (brigade major of the South Wales Borderers) that the Council would welcome the brigade to Porth- cawl next year and would place the Locks Common at their disposal during the period from July 20th to July 27th. subject to the usual regulations of the Council.

PUBLIC LANDOWNERSHIP. The Land Nationalisation Society is organis- ing a series of conferences on the question of public ownership of land in view of the promi- nent place which land reform is likely to take in Parliament in the near future. The first conference will be held in London on Saturday afternoon, the 13th inst., at Essex Hall, Esaex- street, Strand, when Alderman W. H. Dickin- son, M.P., will preside, and Dr. T. J. Macna- mara. M.P., will open the discussion. Other conferences will follow at other largo centres of population. The organisers of thes e conferences hold that the questions of high ratine, overcrowding and rural depopulation can only be solved by the gradual and equitable abolition of private pro- perty in land, which they believe to be prime cause of these admittedly serious evils. They contend that the private appropriation of the unearned value of land throws an increasing burden upon the occupiers, that the private control of land prevents the proper planning of new housing areas, and prevents a proper pro- vision of space for each new house, and, fur- ther, that landloidism is chiefly responsible for the farmers' insecurity of tenure, and for the laodlessness of the labourers which compels them to leave the villages for the towns.

Henry Massey, the Neath representative of Messrs W. H. Smith and Sons. Mr W. H. David, who appeared to prosecute on behalf of the police, in his opening address told the Bench that prisoner had imposed upon the good nature of Mr Massey, obtaining' frcm him—in all-il Os 6d, ttmthanding over to Air Massey various pawntickets. The tickets were issued by Mr Wherle. pawnbroker, Neath, and afterthey had left his hands they had been falsified. The amounts had been increased by the prisoner, and he had also inserted articles which had not been deposited with the pawn- broker. In one case the ticket had been altered from 5s 6d to 15s 6d, and in another from 5s 6d to 1:1 5s 6d. Head-Constable Jones said the warrant was issued on September 10th for the arrest of pri- soner, but he absconded the same day. He was subsequently arrested at the Isle of Wight. Prisoner pleaded guilty, and declared that Mr Massey had sworn a pack of lies. The pawn- tickets were left in Mr Massey's custody, and they must have been altered by Mr Massey. Prisoner was committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions. Other Charges. Later in the day the iia-ne prisoner was again brought up at the Neath Borough Police Court and charged with having made a false declara- tion with respect to a pawn ticket which he alleged had been lost.

The prisoner on a. subsequent date called, and said he had lost the pawn ticket, and he then asked for a form of declaration to be used in such a case. Prisoner brought the form back the same da-T. The form was signed, J. D. Llewellyn." Mr Llewellyn was a borough justice. Prisoner re- deemed the goods by paying the amount ad- vanced on a pair of trousers and vest. Wm. Henry Massey gave evidence of lending prisoner 6s on the ticket produced, which pur- ported to be for a gold bracelet and a trousers and vest. Mr J. D. Llewellyn, J.P., said prisoner cams to him on August 4th and declared he had lost a pawn ticket. Prisoner produced a declaration filled up, which witness signed. Cross-examined He had no recollection of being shown another declaration. Pclice-sergeant Higgios said that he charged prisoner with having made a false declaration, and in ieply to the charge the prisoner asked him if he had any more. Prisoner, in reply to the charge, said I made no false pretence whatever. I acted in good faith when Mr Massey told me he had lost the ticket with others, and I only stated what I thought was true when I made the declaration. Prisoner was committed for trial at Quarter Sessions. A third charge1 was then preferred against prisoner of altering and uttering certain pawn- tickets with intend to defraud. In reply to this charge prisoner said, I am not guilty. I know nothing about altering the tickets. If they had been altered it was by someone else." Prisoner was committed to take his trial at the next Assizes, and at his request, the Bench made an order that the other two charges should be taken at the Assizes instead of at Quarter Sessions, as previously decided.

His article on Christ in Religion suggested by the opinions of the Bishop of Carlisle and Canon Knox Little on the Education Bill, which appears in the current number of the Hibbert Journal is therefore all the more significant. Admitting the proposition that it is deplorable that the children of the world should be permitted to lead the children of the kingdom astray in educational matters with catchwords and catechisms,' Mr Ffrangcon Davies proceeds to show that the difficulty in regard to the question of education lies deeper than the rights of Dissenters and Churchmen as such. Sectarians of all denominations, he points out, have themselves to blame for the very plague of catchwords which exercise the mind of the canon, inasmuch as they have materialised the Christ. It is a strange sight, says he, to see men who say they have love for the Master, who speak of sacrifice as a religious necessity, claiming that Christ, the Truth that makes men free, has placed His universal cause in the guardianship of one particular sect in a church to the exclusion of other denominations, Incidentally Mr Ffrangcon Davies throws a vivid sidelight on occurrences in his own career, how 20 years ago as a young clergyman he gave up his position and faced the world." because he could not find God in man's theology, how he found God in art, and has sung His words and won approbation in the fruits of his present work how a cultured ecclesiastic, a successor of the Apostles, and a ery strict priest, prevented his former brother from singing in a cathedral a part in which the world says he has done some good. and how he has been fighting hi3 own and others bigotry all his life-first the bigotry of Dissent among the rockmen of Llanarthairn. the lay and prioftly bigotry in the provinces and in London, and finally with wild beasts in Epheras the bigotry rampant in the musical world. The lesson taught to him was that while he sought to bend men to his thought, or while they sought to bend him to theirs chaos eiasued-all "dogma, and luminous and distinct catechism motive notwithstanding; while on the other hand he related himself to the Christ, the spirit of truth, grace, love, beauty, harmony, and dominion he found he did not repel men. The high ideal drew men towards it. and his educational work was done satisfactorily and unconsciously. The application of Mr Ffrangcon Davies's experience to the education question is obvious. He is acknowledged to be a great artist readers of this article will perhaps understand why.

INFLUENCE OF WOMAN. Dr. Emil Reich at Cardiff. The popularity of the lectures provided by the Cardiff Y.M.C.A. during the autumn and winter months was again demonstrated last night, when the first of the series of lectures arranged for the 1906-7 course was given in tho Cory Hall to a large audience. The lecturer was Dr. Emil Reich, who has come into great prominence by reason of the originality and piquancy of his views. His subject last night was A comparison of nations," in which ho dwelt largely upon the influence of women in forming and moulding the character of nations. Nations consisted of men and women. His. torians ignored this—they never spoke of woman. The French woman was France. In provincial France they did not, as in Eng. land, find over a shop the name John Smith." The name of the wife as well as the husband was put up over the shop, and the woman stood in the shop, and all business passed through her hands. The French boy was under the influence of his mother until his 25th year, or if not of his mother of some other woman—(laughter)—but at any rate of a woman. The lecturer affirmed that a man ought to be free from womanly influence after the age of 18. But although the French woman was overbearing and exacting, she nad grace. The pill was gilded. The French girl had absolutely no liberty. Her fiancee waa onlv allowed to see her two or three times a week, and then the mother was present to talk aDout literature. (Laughter.) Yet this girl, as soon as she married, became an im, perious and exacting woman—to the benefit of France. French history had been made and unmade by women. The greatest woman in history was Joan of Arc. The French woman had deprived the French of Empire. The French woman was anti- Imperialist to the core. She would not leave France. An Englishman's wife on the other hand did not much mind where she went so long as she was with her husband. Waterloo came because Frenclffluen deserted Napoleon, and they deserted bim because otthe influence of their women, who when Napoleon won a battle in distant parts said, "What do we care? There he goes into Austria, Prussia, Asia, 1: don't know where. That docs not interest us. What we want is France." It as the French woman who kiiled Napoleon. With such a woman the British Empire could never have been built up. After giving his experience of having been treated as a baby by American women, the lecturer said, "I could not stand the voice. I couid not stand the condescension in the voice." The American woman, he went on to say, was not a woman in the sense that a European understood a woman. America, he thought, would, be ruined by its women, who had not a one-child sytsem or a two-child system, as in France, but a no-child system. That could not go on for long without bringing ruin to the nation. The lecturer gave several instances showing how great admirals. soldiers, statesmen, poets, musicians, &c., had been inspired by women, and was warmly ap- plauded on resuming his seat. Mr Higman, secretarv of the Y.M.C.A., men- tioned that a rumour had sot about that the seats had all been taken. That was not so.
CARDIGAN TOWN COUNCIL. Proposed Incorporation of St. Dogmells. At a special meeting of Cardigan Town Council on Monday, the Mayor presiding, the Town Clerk reported that tenders had been invited from local tradesmen for the supply of public incandescent lamps and burners, but none ha:l been sent in.

Some owners of property requested that the concrete pave- ment now being put down at Pendre be ex- tended up to the front waU of their respective houses, and by the casting vote of the Mayo? the surveyor was authorised to do the addi. tional work at the rate of 2s 61 per yard. The Town Clerk stated that he had served notices on the owners of the s.s Little Malta, which had sunk in the fairway opposite the Gasworks, to remove the same within seven days. i.

In repJyto Councillor Mander, the Town Clerk stated that tbeCouncilha to discretionary powers in granting licences, they must act judicially in regard tc? any apP^* cation that came to them. If the existing traffic required more accommodation he took it to be the duty of the Council to assist in Pf^r viding that accommodation themselves# but 1 no further accommodation was needed tbe Council could refuse to grant all applications, The licences, however, were only granted froJJ1 year to year. and the Council could refuse to renew the licences without notice or compe. tion.

He said that there must p competition with the tramways if the root°^ buses were allowed to ply in the thoroughfare now served by the trams, and several of streets, such as Wharton street, were too c9 gested for motor traffic. He suggested that tB stopping places of any proposed motor y service should not be in the centre of the CltJ; but should be at the termini of the tramvva. in Fairoak-road and at the nearest safe ehaC^. ing place to and from the trams on the 0 j.iy route. The public would then be exeellen ? accommodated and the tramways would t-bt suffer." It should be borno in mind by t'd committee that the Tramways Committee h under consideration the desirability of ruan' motor 'buses as feeders to the trams. The engineer agreed with the tramways D}a,aafue that certain of the streets through which motor'buses were proposed to run were congested.. r 1,3 Councillor Mander said that as tho v Committee would after November be mergble into the Watch Committee, it was desire that the whole qutlpn should be deferre^. that the hands of the new licensing autho^ would not be crippled in any way.
