Notes and News. Three months ago the cry was for votes I now it is for the veto. Evidently the Liberals are fond of elec- tions. They now propose to have one every five years at least. An Albert Hall meeting will not be held at the commencement of the next General Election. The Radicals have not forgotten the last one yet Some Tory papers declare the Labour Exchanges to be a complete failure. No person, outside a lunatic asylum, would have expected them to do more work than they have accomplished during their short existence. Let us have them for three years, at least, before we commence to judge of their results. EYES. (From the French.) Blue eyes and dark eyes, lovely and bright, Eyes without number have seen the light; They are closed in sleep, to open no more, And the sun shines as before. The evening's sweeter than morning light, Eyes without number have seen the night, The lovely stars the skies illume, But the eyes are full of gloom. 0 can these eyes no longer see, As they saw on earth ? It cannot be Eyes, where the light of earth has been Are but turned to the great Unseen. The waning star is lost to sight, But still the heavens retain its light, Eyes set, as stars set in the sky, But it cannot be they die Blue eyes and dark eyes, lovely and bright, Open to some eternal light, Beyond the tomb, and sorrow and pain, Eyes that even closed shall see again T. J. THOMAS, B.Sc. (Sarnicol). What has become of the Welsh members of Parliament ? Very few of them put in an appearance at the House of Commons these days. Evidently they are planning for the coming campaign The late Hon. Tom Price, the Socialist Welsh Premier of South Australia, accord- ing to his will, left property valued at up- wards of u2,000 in Great Britain alone. According to all reports, the contest in Mid Glamorgan is going to be a very keen and bitter one. The Liberal is a very popular candidate, and will be supported by all the official associations. The numerous friends of the Rev. David Da vies, Walham Green, will be glad to hear that at the invitation of the Fulham Free Church Council he has allowed his name to be put forward for a seat on the West London Board of Guardians. As Vice President of the local Free Church Council he attended the Conference recently held at, Hull. The Welsh C.M. Church at Walham Green, over which he is pastor, is in a flourishing condition, and the Sunday School is considered to be one of the best in London. Mr. Davies is, in addition to being a powerful preacher, one of the keenest Welsh politicians in London. It is well that this should be so, for among other leading politicians and nationalists attached to his church are Messrs. Timothy Davies, John Rowland, David Rhys, and Mr. Isaac T. Lloyd, the Organizer-General of the Welsh Temperance forces in the Metropolis. Mr. John Rowland the Chancellor's Private Secretary-has been co-opted a member of the Cardiganshire Education Committee. He is well known in Educa- tional circles, being a member of the Central Welsh Board, and also a member of the University Court. In a North Wales parish church, last Sunday, three banns of marriages were published. When the vicar gave out the hymn "Dyma gariad fel y moroedd after reading the announcements, the members of the congregation were compelled to smile. The case of Davies and The Premium Trading Stamp Company was heard last week in the King's Bench Division by Mr. Justice Bray and a common jury. In this case Mr. Hughes Davies, Dairy and Pro- vision Merchant, 315, Roman Road, Bow, was the Plaintiff, and he sued the defen- dants for an alleged breach of agreement. The defendant company denied any breach. Evidence having been heard on both sides for two days, the jury found for the Plain- tiff with £ 175 damaues and judgment was given accordingly with costs. As will be seen from our advertiRemen- columns, Parts I and II of Gounod's Rel demption will be performed at the Centrat Hall, Newport, 0:1 Good Friday. Mr. Arthur Sims, the well-known choir leader, will con- duct the perfor nance.
