The Clack Lion Crossing Crash. Thomas White, 7 Bond Street, Aber- dare, sued the G.W.R. Co. and the Cwmaman Colliery Co. for t23 damages for personal injuries. Mr Ivor Parry represented the plaintiff. Mr C. B. Stanton, miners' agent, was also pres- ent. The defendant companies were I represented by Mr Prosser (Messrs. C. and W. Kenshole). The case was tried by a jury, of whom Mr T. Lloyd was foreman. Plaintiff stated he was a collier em- played by the Cwmaman Coal Co. He travelled to and from his work by the workmen's (G.W.R.) train. His fare was deducted from his pay by the Col- liery Co.-Is. per week, and he was given a pass. There was a working agreement between the G.W.R. and the Colliery Co. On November 27th he was proceeding to his work and wished to catch the 9 p.m. train at Black Lion Crossing. There were about 150 men waiting for the same train. It was a very cold night. He was standing for shelter by a small brick shanty, which was about 20 yards from the proper shelter, the latter being full up. Wit- ness had used that particular train for about 5 years. He didn't know for what purpose the shanty was used now, but he remembered when it was used as a booking office. By the Judge They had sheltered in the shanty scores of times. Examination continued On the night in question a train got derailed and crashed into the shanty, knocking it down on top of them. It was built of bricks and a slate roof. Witness was knocked down and rendered uncon- scious. He found himself in the signal box. Witness was then taken to Dr. Rhys' surgery, and afterwards home. He was away from work from Nov. 27th till Dec. 22nd. His average wages were about £ 3 a week. The damage to his clothes was 5s. 6d., and ZCJO he claimed lor injuries. By Mr Prosser: He didn't know he was doing wrong by standing by the shanty. The signalman Lane did not order him away from the shanty. He. only said, I must lock the gate be- cause the boss is in the box." Lane re- ferred to Mr. Bevan. His wound had to be stitched. He did not meet Mr David Rees (compensation clerk) on the day following the accident. He went to the colliery on Saturday for his wages. He never suggested making any claim until March of this year. His claim of ti for extra nourishment was for light food. Mr. Prosser: In place of beef, or was it Invalid Stout? (Laughter.)—Plain- tiff did not answer. Dr. W. LI. Rhys deposed that he had plaintiff under his care on and after the date of the accident. When wit- ness first saw him he had received first- aid. He seemed dazed and shaky, and had a nasty wound over the left eye. He had to stitch the wound, and then bandaged it up. He continued treating him fdi three weeks, and on his advice the man abstained from work. Harry Stevens was waiting for the workmen's train on the night in ques- tion. He stood with White at the pine end of the shanty. He didn't go to the shelter that night. He had been scores of times to the oil shanty, and had never been sent away from there. There was no sign there at the time of the acci- dent referring to trespassers. William Evans, a repairer's helper at the Cwmaman Colliery, was taking .vlielter on Nov. 27th to leeward of the oil shanty. He went to the shelter but found it was full. On no occasion had 1,A I any railway official ordered him away from the shanty. Inspector Bevan and Stationmaster Lewis had seen him there m many occasions. Robert Grant. 12 Catherine Street, Aberdare, gave corroborative evidence. Rufus Enoch, enginedriver, employed by the Powell Duffryn Co., gave corro- borative evidence. He waited by the shanty. It was quite a custom for the men to do it. He had a slight blow on the arm. He rendered first-aid to the plaintiff, and with assistance got him to Dr. Rhys's surgery. Wm. D&rch, 5 Graig Place, Aberdare, a repairer, saw several standing by the shanty on Nov. 27th. He had done it many times. On one occasion the shanty was open and they went inside. Mr Lewis came in and told them not to smoke there, because of the oil in the place. Thomas Lane, called for the defence, stated that he was the signalman at the Black Lion Crossing on the night in question. One of his duties was to lock the wicket gates. On Nov. 27th he went to lock the gates, and lie saw a lot of men crouching underneath the oil- house wall. He told them they had better get on the platform as the boss was in the box. He had warned them on previous occasions, teiling them they were sure to come to grief. There was a notice, "Trespassers will be prosecut- ed," on the oil shanty. The accident occurred by him pulling the lever a moment too soon, and the last coach went off the rail. It was a dark night. He had no idea that there were any men in the shanty until he went to lock the gates. By Mr. Parry: He had warned the men several times on the ground of their being in a perilous position. He did not tell the men that they had no right to be there. When he spoke he usually had a rather warm reception by the men. J. Lewis, stationmaster at the Dare Junction, stated that he had several times asked men to move from the vicinity of the shanty. Some would go and others would not, and would tell him to go to a certain unnameable place. David Rees, compensation clerk at the Cwmaman Colliery, stated that he saw White the day after the accident. White told witness that he had no bones broken, and would be able to resume work in a few days. White's wages for a period of 10 weeks averaged £ 2 per week. Mr. Prosser, addressing the jury, said that the signalman had committed all error of judgment, but there were others to blame as well. The men had no right to be in the place where they were. When told by the signal- man to leave they used bad language and refused to go away. He would ask the jury to believe the signalman, who, if he had a grievance at all, it was against the Railway Co., who had re- duced him in rank. Mr Parry held that the two points were whether the plaintiff had a right to be in the place in question, and if so what damages was he entitled to. He (Mr Parry) held that the presence of a notice warning trespassers was not sufficient. The men had been accus- tomed to stand there. Lane, the sig- nalman, never suggested to the men that they were trespassing. He had been reduced in the ranks temporarily for the purpose of this case, and when the case would be over Lane would be reinstated. His Honour said that in this case negligence was admitted by the Com- pany. The signalman had frankly said so. The point was Whether there was any contributory negligence on the part of the plaintiff, and whether he was in a place where he should not have been. The notice warning trespassers did not necessarily apply to passengers. The jury should consider whether, in view of the severe weather, the dark night and the absence of an adequate shelter, it was negligence on the part of the men to avail themselves of the shelter of the shanty. He could not see that there was any more danger in shelter- ing behind this shanty than behind the station. There was no reason for fear- ing that this shanty might be knocked over by a train. Unless it would be proved that the men were absolutely prohibited from going to the place where they were it could not be held that there' was contributory negligence on the part of White. With regard to the matter of damages, the main ques- tion to be considered was the loss of wages. It would have been better if I the cost of additional nourishment had not been mentioned. The jury returned a verdict for plain- tiff with tlO damages. qm!!Nf-

Bible in Schools. B iNISH THE PRIEST AND NOT THE BOOK. On Sunday the preacher at Green-street English Wesleyan Church, Aberdare, was the veteran Rev. J. H. Morgan, chair- man of the district, a native of Aberyst- wyth. In the morning Mr. Morgan took as his text, Deut. xxxi. 13, And that their children, who have not known any- thing, may hear and learn to fear the Lord." He took as his theme, The Jew- ish religion and the child." Judaism taught that the foundation of all child- training was knowledge of God. Refer- ring to the omission to teach the Word of God in day schools, the preacher re- marked that he did not wish to enter into politics, but he could not help de- ploring that priests and politicians should brandish their tomahawks over the head of the innocent child. The bible was admitted to the home and to parliament, therefore why exclude it from the school ? Nay, rather banish the priest from the day school than the bible. The Jewish religion also taught that children had a capacity for receiving truth and leading a religious life. Also that the capacity of religion in the child would not develop of itself. Further, that the care of the child wac. the chief mark of a well-or- dered State. In the evening Mr. Morgan preached again. Mr. A. E. Hannston was organ- ist and choirmaster at both services. CHRISTIANITY AND CHILD LIKE- NESS. On Monday afternoon the Rev. T. Ed- munds, B.A., preached. Taking as his text John iii. 1-3, and Matt. iii. 1-3, the rev. gentleman said that the first three gospels contained the words of Jesus, but the fourth gospel contained the thoughts of Jesus expressed in St. John's vocabu- lary. When we spoke of a kingdom, we thought of something grand and elabor- ate. Christ spoke of a kingdom, and the disciples communed amongst themselves who was to be the chief in that kingdom. Jesus took a little child and said unto them, Except ye become as this little child, ye shall not enter into the king- dom of heaven." Childlikeness was a requisite state for the heavenly kingdom. Why did men know so little of Heaven? Because they were too big. There was an enormous difference between childish- ness and childlikeness. When did men first go wrong? When they ceased to be childlike. Humility and sweetness were born of goodness, and only the grace of God could bring back the bloom and the blossom which belonged to childlikeness. —The Rev. H. Barraclough, circuit min- ister, spoke briefly at the close of the ser- vice. I In the evening, at the same chapel, the Rev. J. Hugh Morgan delivered a most interesting lecture on The Battle of I Life." Mr. Gilbert Hodges presided.
Calfaria, Aberdare. Quarterly meetings were held at Cal- faria (B.) on Sunday. The Rev. J. Grif- fiths, pastor, presided. In the afternoon a chapter was read by Mr. Thomas Wheeler.

Women's Co-operative Guild. This institution, in connection with which meetings are held fortnightly at the Assembly Rooms, Cardiff-street, Aber- dare, has not yet celebrated its first birth- day. but its membership already numbers over fifty. The chief object of the guild hitherto has been the education of its members in the true principles of co- operation, though its members have also taken a keen interest in local social work. To this end papers have been read from time to time by members of the manage- ment committee, and the secretary of the society, dealing with the aims of pioneer and modern co-operators in the truest sense of the term. Not the least instruc- tive paper was one given by Nurse Carter on Mothercraft." In the meantime, the social life of the guild has not been neglected, many con- vivial evenings having been spent. A few weeks ago, too, the members organ- ised a ramble to Cross-Bychan, which was a. distinct success. In the course of its short history, a district conference has been held in the town, at which the secre- tary of Aberdare Branch was elected on the district committee. Keen interest has been taken through- out in local co-operative affairs, and the g-nild has made its influence felt in the movement. In the near future, when the guild is established on a firm foundation, more active practical work will be taken up.
