THEFT OF JEWELLERY. A Llanelly Boy's Dealings. At Llanelly Police Court on Wednesday Wm. Edward Williams (16), of Emma-street, was charged with stealing aquantity of jewellery, of the valne of tl7 8s 6d, the property of his employer, Mr Griffin, jeweller. Stepney- street. Detecti-ve-Sergeant Lewis gave' evi- dence of arrest, and in answer to the charge defendant said, I did it, sir." Mr Griffin, jeweller, said that defendant was engaged by him as an apprentice. All the goods were in his shop during the month of August, and he did not miss them until they were produced by Detective-Ser- geant Lewis. Alexander Holmes, of Norwich, partner in the firm of Allen and Daw. gold and silver- smiths, stated that on the 21st August he re- ceived a latter signed by defendant. It was en- closed in a parcel containing eleven 9-carat short chains, two 9-carat keeper rings, one 18- carat ring, one 9-carat turquoise ring and a pair of engraved links. The writer asked for the best cash offer for the goods.. On the 27t,h they received another letter from him from 63, Bute-street, Treherbert, in which he acknowledged the receipt of E2 for goods and asked for their best offer for another lot of goods enclosed. Upon examining the goods they noticed they were new, and their sus- picions being aroused they communicated with the Norwich police. They handed the parcel to Detective Hugh. Mr Griffin gave prisoner an excellent charac- ter, and he was bound over- for-wix months in I the sum of £10 under the FirsV Offenders Act^
WORKMEN'S TOPICS. THE TRADE UNION CONGRESS AND THE LABOUR MEMBERS. I (By MABON, M.P.) The Trade Union Congress of this year can look back with satisfaction to the satisfactory result of the famous resolution that its prede- cessors at Plymouth passed to form a Labour party. And it is to be sincerely hoped that the one passed at Bath so recently will also achieve a thorough success in strengthening the forces which have so unmistakablv devel- oped during the last two years. In some ways the discussion of the question at Bath last week with regard to bringing together those members of Parliament who constitute the Labour party and those who represent directly the Trade Union, and called the Trade Union group, into closer touch was the greatest value of all the discussions of the congress. Nothing could have been much better than the pacific and conciliatory temper in which the debate was conducted. True, a few angry words and bitter epithets were thrown about, but, com- paratively speaking, they were as nothing to what we have had on other ques- tions and at other times. Moreover, there were very few echoes at Bath, and it was evident that the desire for peace and a good understanding was over- whelming. It is plain now that all that is wanted is a little tact and patience, which those in Parliameut will exercise till the unity of the parties is achieved, and those outside will make up their "minds to stop stirring the dying embers into flame again. I am quite certain in my own mind that the real Trade Unionist leaders in those two groups will ere long find a way to be reunited. A few men, in- tolerant on each side, will have to be repressed, or may perhaps see the impossibility of their remaining in their respective groups. One or two out-and-out Socialists in the one group may elect to become free lances in the House rather than become members of any party at all. And about the same number on the other side may c loose to be absorbed in the Liberal party than have any truck at all with men with whose extreme Socialistic tem- perament-and views they have little or no sympathy. As to the bulk of both parties, they will unite. I am positive, and without any great delay. Shackleton, Henderson, Gill, Edwards, Brace, and Mabon, with others on each side, will find a way-to bridge oer the present diffi- culties. Some tact and more patience have al- ready been exercised. A little more time, and all will be right. Conciliation within will avail if patience rules outside- More forbearance must be exercised on the part of some of those who profess a great anxiety for a united Labour party. It is extremely unfair to be always speaking of those members of the Trade Union group as if they were merely pawns on the Liberal party chess board. The facts will prove that the contrary is the case. The House of Commons does not contain men of more determined independence or of more sterling integrity of character. The division list will prove that those who belong to this group have never been afraid of voting in the Opposition lobby, and of criticising the Govern- ment which they would like to be able to sup- port. It is time now that it should be under- stood that because they accept the great ideas of Liberalism, as far as they go they work for those ideas. But over and over again when they find that the Government and its supporters do not come up to the full height of those ideas they leave the laggards behind and vote with those who go beyond. They form an invaluable element in the House of Commons, and their position must be respected and recognised in the discussion respecting the coming concordat. The con- gress at Bath clearly appreciated these facts, and recognised them in all the important speeches made there. The Labour party again claims equal con- sideration. It is extremely unjust to speak of the men composing this party as a lot of mis- chief makers orpolitical Ishmaelibes. Most of them I honestly believe have definite ideas. They pursue great public aims conscientiously and completely. And some of the leaders have shown considerable statesman- ship. Nothing could be more masterly than the way in which Mr Shackleton piloted the Trades Disputes Bill when he had it in hand, and doubtless, of all parties in the House of Commons they bring less sectarian spirit into the presentation of their work. If the par- tisans outside Parliament could be persuaded to be less boisterous in their declamations against others 90 per cent. of the Labour men in the House would soon find tbe way to come together, for they possess very fully the essen tials of all co-operation—respect for each other. And as far as I know, and feel, there is nothing personally in all those who would prevent these forces uniting into one party, for as things are at present they are united in action in nine cases out of ten on an Labour questions, such as the Trades Disputes Bill, Workmen's f Compensation Bill, the Feeding of Children, and the Unemployed, etc., etc., and they will f be found to be in agreement on old age pen- sions and all other questions having a direct bearing on Labour. It was thought, if not understood, in several quarters that it would stand for a limited and narrow demand of one class interest only, and would attack what was inadequate in current Liberal politics, and all these mis- givings have been falsified. Many persons dis- like the Labour party's creed and condemn its Ipolicy and fear its power. But now that it is known, very few indeed would dare assert that they have shut their sympathies within the narrow 1 imits of their own title. But the fact is, that most of the members of the Labour party have thrown themselves into all controversies of politics, and interest them- selves in the responsibilities of government. They interest themselves also in all the essen- tial ideas of Democracy, and no Liberal who is in earnest about his political creed can do less than rejoice in the strength of a party that is prepared to do so much for the people, and, when they like, can add to their powers in co-operating with others of similar creed and opinions. As the result of observations one finds that in the House of Commons are collected to- gether a great body of reformers, not all of one mind, it is true, not all of one party, but a body which will be of the greatest importance and value to any Parliament could they but be invited to carry out one by one the objects they have in general. Their strength in the House is greater than their strength in the Government. And I am constrained to believe that Conld they by some means or other be brought to unitedly use their power they would soon give effect to the real wishes of the electorate. Every true Democrat will wel- come the spirit displayed in the discussion of these matters at the Bath Trade Union Con- gress, for without interfering in any way with the independence of-either set of reformers, it provided for something like concentrated pressure from the members, who are in close touch with Trade Union opinion. And what Parliament stands in need of occar- sionaDy is a little more of this concentration in all the ranks of democratic element. The weakness of the present system is that no one seems to know or understand the real strength of the number of advanced men that could be brought together, and thus its real force or strength is lost and yet, without that strength be used, the driving fotces of Democracy are in danger of "being arrested by the more timid and less representative ele- ments of government. If the real strength of the present Democrats in the House of Com- mons could be concentrated they could make life intolerable to any Department that would take things too leisurely, and by so doing they could easily make the present Parliament a. more triumphant force for reform than it is now.
CARDIFF CONSTABLE RETIRES. A very familiar figure to the frequenters of the Cardiff City Police Court wiu, after to- day, be missed. P.C. Joseph Thomlinson completes his service of 26 years, and will then retire on a well-earned pension. For the last nine years Thomlinson has acted as chief clerk in the Police Court department, the duties of which position he haa discharged conacten-, tiously and well.
Hollyhocks. These are much finer this year than we re- member to have seen them, says a writer in the Fif-ld. It may be that the compara- tively dull summer has been favourable to the gro\\th of the plants, and fess favourable to the disease which so often spoils them. Throughout the country, or rather that portion of it that we have visited recently, and which extends pretty well over the south, cast, and west, as far as Manchester, the stems of the Hollyhocks are remarkable for vigour, height, and quantity of bloom. This is espe- cially true of the double-flowered varieties, and we are pleased to see that they have prac- tically regained the position as. popular garden plants to which they had attained until about thirty years ago, when the deadly fungus Pue- cinia malvaceavum destroyed valuable collec- tions of Hollyhocks wholesale. The double- flowered varieties are no doubt weaker than the singles, because they require to be repro- duced from cuttings or by grafting but where they have become estab- lished, and it appears to be quite easy to establish them in localities near the sea, they are as permanent a feature of the garden as the best natured of hardy peren- nials. When raised from seeds, the plants require to be placed in their permanent posi- tions as soon as they are large enough to handle. The present time is the best for sowing the seeds in the open border. We know a garden surrounded by a wide border in which Hollyhocks have for years been the principal feature, and it would be difficult to find any- where a more attractive sight than this when the Hollyhocks are in their glory, their stems up to 10ft. high, and their flowers all shades, from white and yellow to crimson. Although a native of China, whence it was intro- duced into this country about 300 years ago, the Hollyhock (Althea rosea) is quite hardy with us, suffering only when planted in wet or badly drained situations. It is a gross feeder, the best plants we have seen liaving been grown in a soil which was practically all sand; but every year a thick mulch of well-rotted stable manure was placed where the Holly- hocks grew. Summer Flowering Annuals. The period of flowering is all too short with many annuals. By constantly removing the old flowers from Sweet Peas, so as to prevent the strength of the plants being used up in the production of seeds, cutting off one or two of the longest growths to induce them to make new shoots, and by mulching them with manure, or giving them periodical apphcations of liquid manure, it is possible to keep Sweet Pear in flower throughout the summer. Annuals, such as L-\rtepiv-s. Collinsias. and Stocks, should be replaced now with planes for the purpose whilst perennials such as Or-eu Lal Poppies, which cannot be rooted out, may have other plants dotted in between them, Those who have a spare piece of ground well stocked with late-blooming pl&nts can soon fill up these bare and untidy patches, and there are no more suitable plants for this purpose than the early flowering Chrysanthemums. By the exercise of a little care, it is possible to transplant these plants when in bud, or even in full flower, without their losing a leaf if on the day previous to lifting them they are well watered, watering them again immediately after planting. Each plant must be lifted with a good ball of soil. Bouvardias, Lan- tanas, and Salvia splendens can be treated in the same way. N uts, Filberts and cobs promise good crops, whilst Walnuts are very scarce. Cut out any sucker growths from the base of Filbert bushes, and see that squirrels do not take the fruits, the gi-tn beiug the best means of scaring them, if not allowed to kill. Caterpillars have not ribboned the foliage this year as in some seasons, owing to our having sprayed the trees early in the spring, after the fruit trees were finished. Trained Fruit Trees. If the lateral growths were pinched early in the season, secondary shoots will have formed, and these should now be stopped at the first leaf this practice will favour the formation of fruit-buds at the base of the current season's shoots. A crowded condition of the lateral growths must be avoided, in order that the wood which should produce fruit next season may become well ripened the banging fruits will also benefit by the removal of superfluous shoots- The present is a suitable time to observe gross-growing trees that they may be marked for root-pruning towards the end of October and early in November. Frequently hose or syringe the foliage of trees trained against warm walls, for red spider is much easier kept away than eradicated when present. Aphis, too, will sometimes appear on Peach and Nectarine trees when syringing is discon- tinued whilst the fruits are ripening. Immedi- ately the crop has been cleared wash the trees with quassia extract, and direct the sponge to the underneath side of the leaves, this posi- tion being a favourable lurking-place for insect life. In some gardens, blackbirds and thrushes devour ripening peaches, and crops of Figs are often entirely ruined by these birds, unless netting is used to keep them at bay. Expose late ripening Peaches to the full rays of the sun by placing the foliage aside part of a leaf may be- cut away if it is unduly shading a fruit. Examine each day the traps set to catch ear- wigs, and destroy any that are caught by blowing them into a pail which is half filled with hot water. Bedding Calcsolarias. In the West of Eugland cuttings of these plants are rarely inserted before the end of September, but in less favoured parts it is now time to commence the work. The simplest method for their propagation is to prepare a frame, the bottom of which should be filled with porous material to ensure suitable drain- age. The soil should consist of a mixture of three parts loam to one of leafsoil, with the addition of plenty of coarse sand, and the whole should be passed through a sieve having a fin. mesb. Make the soil firm and spread a thin layer of silver sand over the surface. The cuttings should be short-jointed and without flower-bxids plant them firmly at a distance of 2in. apart. Apply water copiously with a fine rose can, and keep the lights closed, except for half-an-hour each day, when they should be slightly tilted at the back to allow any superfluous moisture to escape. Shade the cuttings from bright sunshine, and when they are rooted admit air freely to harden them. The Richardias. The familiar Arum Lily (Richard ia Africana) is so deservedly popular as to make it appear remarkable that some other meritorious member of the genus which were introduced to cultivation some twenty years ago are not more frequently met with in gardens now. Of these, li. Elliottiana, the golden arum, is uni- versally regarded as a good thing. Indeed, when ssen at its best, it excites universal admiration, and some day it will be a widely- cultivated and popular plant. Properly treated it is in all respects as fine as in the white arum, the spathe being large and of a beautiful golden yellow, and lasting for a fortnight in perfection. Yet for all this, R. Elliottiana is but rarely met with. Plants in flower command quite an extravagant price. R. Pentlandi, another yellow-flowered species and equal in merit to the foregoing, is even less generally known. A good deal has been heard of one called Mrs Roosevelt, this being, of course, a United States emanation. The description given is "sulphur yellow, dark green spotted foliage, very free bloomer, quite new, and distinct, and it is only procurable at a rather high price. The so-called pink-flowered Arum (R. Rehmanni), a native of Natal, is somewhat disappointing. It is quite pro- bable, however, that our greenhouses will be brightened by the advent of a genuinely pink Arum some day. As it is, there is already a fine assortment of coloured arums, according to the bulb growers' catalogues. Plants are distinct as Arum Dracunculus, the Dragon Arum, and Sauromatum Gattatum. the monarch of the east, are to be found lumped together under the headings of Arum Lilies, with glowing descriptions of their per- sonal appearance attached. In the Kitchen Garden. Continue to hoe at frequent intervals the surface soil between all winter crops. The season of growths being now short, it is well to afford every assistance possible to the various crops, so that they may become properly matured, and be therefore the better able to withstand severe weather in winter. By freely using the hoe both between the crops and on vacant plots at this season, before the weeds have ripened seed, much labour will be saved next season. A few of the old. leaves at the base of the Brussels Sprouts should be taken off to allow a free circulation of air and light among the crop, particularly where much growth has been made and the leaves are now thick together. If this work is neglected, the young Sprouts will become drawn, weakly, and loose. Attend to the earthing-up of Celery, doing the necessary work at the first favourable opportunity but never on any account carry out such an operation when the leaves or stems are approaching a damp or moist con-, ,diti.œ <Jr decay of the crown will take-piwe,,
Offered a Bribe." ABERDARE PUBLIC LIFE. Committee Member's Allegation. At a meeting of the Aberdare Education Committee on Wednesday, Mr T. Lewis moved that the resolution letting the Gadlya School house to Mr Evan Williams, head master of the Higlier Standard School, be rescinded. Were they going to turn out an aged widow to put in Mr Williams ? Mr Stonelake seconded the resolution. After discussion Mr Lewis claimed a right to reply, and said it was evident that Mr Evan Williams had a clique of supporters on that committee. He had. never, since he was first elected a member, been buttonholed to such an extent as in this case. He had even been offered a bribe if he let the matter drop. (Sensation.) Mr John Howell had told them he sympathised with the widow. He appealed to him to show his sympathy in a practical form. Mr John Howell (excitedly) I have no a.xe to grind. Mr Lewis Neither have I. I tight for the right. Mr J. Howell This is all out of order. I appeal to the chairman to stop all these personalities. I am not going to stand it. I am an older member than Mr Lewis and more experienced. The Chairman appealed for order, but Mr Lewis and Mr Howell continued to shout across the table, and some minutes passed before business could be proceeded with. Twice three voted for the motion, and three against, and the Chairman gave his casting vote for the motion, the previous reso- lution being declared rescinded. Mr Stonelake said he had withdrawn his seconding of the resolution, but the Chairman adhered to his ruling. Punishment Controversy. The Clerk stated that Mr Jackson Thomas bad reported to him that Air Levi D. Jones, B-Sc., an assistant at the Aberaman School, had unduly punished his son by striking him with the cane on the haud and the back. He had visited the school, and the teacher ad- mitted haying struck the lad on the hand and back with the cane, but denied that the punishment was unduly severe. Mr Jackson Thomas said that when the boy came home he was exhausted and unable to eat his dinner, or go back to school. The teacher, who was in attendance, said the boy was reported to him by a pupil teacher for disobedience, and he punished the lad twice on the hand and once on the back. Mr Thomas came to him at the school, and in a most dictatorial manner told him over and over again, Do not do it in again," to which he replied that if the lad dis- obeyed he would repeat the punishment Mr Jackson Thomas said he thought the head- master, Mr Notton, and the boy should appear before the committee. Mr Jones What can Mr Notton say ? Mr Jackson Thomas He can say that I did not come to you in a dicta- torial manner. Mr Notton told me to-day that you were a very impudent chap. (Sensa- tion.) And it is time to put a stop to it. Mr Jones Mr Notton told me there and then that you were only displaying your ignorance. It was resolved that the headmaster, the assis- tant, and the boy attend the next meeting of the committee. I
DWELLIN6S FOR WORKMEN. Inadequate Provision at Swansea. At a meeting of the Swansea Corporation Property Committee on Wednesday, Alder- man Tutton presiding, a communica- tion was received from the Swansea Guardians drawing attention to the scarcity of houses for workmen in the borough. It was decided to refer the letter to the Hous- ing Committee, and to reply that preparations were being made for the provision of accom- modation for 300 families. A recommendation was submitted that the Corporation as landlords contribute the equi- valent of £1.000 towards the provision of main sewers, the expenditure incurred in adapting the ground et Baptist I', ell, for building pur- poses be by way of reduced ground rent spread over 99 jbcxs,- and to be in the aggre- gate the. amount required Lo r-pay with in- terest in 60 years the sum of £ 1,000. This was agreed to. A petition was received from business men in Portland-street against the use of ihe street for loading and unloading pro- duce for the market. It was recommended by the sub-committee that the police be in- by the sub-committee that the police be in. structed to take steps to prevent further obstruction. The Chairman now stated that a communication would be placed before the market superintendent explaining what the tradesmen required. Mr Morgan Hopkin intro- duced the question of the Corporation con- tributing to the prize list for a butchers' show in the town. Decision was deferred, Mr Hopkin in the meantime to confer with the butchers.

DOWLAIS DANGER SPOT. An inquest was held at Dowiais Police Station by Mr Coroner Rhys on Wednesday touching the death of Brinley Lewis, aged seven years, son of Edward Lewis, foreman blacksmith. Margaret Jones, Old Brewery-road, said she saw the child struggling in the Morlais Brook near Gellifaelog Bridge on Friday afternoon last. He got up and fell back into the water, and she sent her boy to the child's assistance, and he brought him up to her in the field. There was blood streaming from a terrible gash in the back of his head, which witness ban- daged up. Since the last accident the Corpora- tion had filled up a gap near the same spot. The Coroner observed that the place was very steep, like a cliff at one part, and the child could easily have tumbled over. The jury returned a verdict of Accidental death."
RAIN! NG PERAMBULATORS.' Some amusement was caused at Pontypridd Police Court on Wednesday by the ingenious defence set up by a labourer in a case of theft. There were two defendants in the dock--Charles James and Henry Phillips, labourers, Ynyshir -who were charged with stealing two toy per- ambulators. Robert Evans spoke to his chil- dren running in from the street crying and saying that two men had stolen the articles. They were discovered in the possession of de- fendants. Evans told the Stipendiary that the perambulaters dropped on his bead when he was in the lavatory. (Laughter.)—The Stipendiary: It was raining perambulators that day. (Renewed laughter.)DefeD.dants were fined 10s, or seven days.
--7- A REMARKABLE TRIBUTE. Do you sing, or do you know anyone who does ? In either case it will interest you to learn that a remrakable fact. which has attracted much attention during the present Opera Season is vouched for by such famous singers as Caruso, Marcel Journet, Maurice Farkoa, and Emmy Destinn, Pauline Donalda, and Mdlle. Suzanne Morival. It may surprise many readers, but these fortunate possessors of great talents all agree that keeping famous is in itself exceedingly hard work, and to safeguard the voice it is absolutely necessary to brace up the system with Phos- ferine, which, they state .cannot be equalled as a voice tonic and nerve energiser. The value of their opinion is apparent, for if celebrities who have won world-wide renown publicly proclaim the benefits they derive from Phos- ferine it is certain that the great majority of singers, speakers, actors, &c., may follow the example of the distinguished artistes named above, and use Pbqsferine with equally satis- factory results. It should be added that the well-known vocalists, Mile. Ghita Corri (Prima Donna), Stella Maris, and Madame Fanny Moody (Moody-Manners Opera Co.), with many other familiar names, have assured us that nothing is so thoroughly effective as Phosferine in dispelliug any nerve disorders or fatigue. We have never before heard of so remarkable or unanimous a tribute from any profession as the one which the aforemen- tioned singers pay to the excellence of Phos- ierine.

PARTING SHOTS. I Pontypridd Councillors' Exchanges. There was a breezy dialogue between two members of the Ponicprickl Council at a meet- ing of the Council held on Tuesday night. Mr Hopkin Morgan asked wh jcher the C-ount-,7 Cooncil had paid the two amounts. £2074" and JE303 4s 6d, due for the years 1904-5 and 1905-6 in respect of the Isolation Hospital. At a recent meeting a member of the County Council declared that that authority paid these accounts immediately the accounts were rendered.—Mr Michael Julian We are not dealing with educational matters now.—Mr Hopkin Morgan Has the money been paid or not 1—The Accountant (Mr E. R- Williams) said the money had not been paid, but it was only fair to sav that the amount had onlv just been agreed upon. It was a. different thing from educational matters.—Mr Hopkin Morgan: You don't think for a moment that J I don't know that. I don't mind Mr Julian 1 thinking that I don't know any better, but I should be sorry if you thought it. (Laoghter.) —Mr Julian (warmly): I protest against that. I am not going to be snubbed continually by Mr Morgan. Perhaps I am not. so dull as Mr Morgan imagines me to be. (Laughter, )-Mr Morgan: I didn't say you were dull. (Laugh- ter.)—Mr Julian: You suggested that the accountant ought not to think the same as myself.—Mr Morgan I don't care what you thinkMr Julian And I don't .care what you think, either.The incident then closed, Mr Morgan remarking that they had always to wait for payments where the County Council were concerned,

"BALMY" WHEN DRUNK. Abergavenny Defendant's Quips.
