Notes and News. The greatest funeral the world has ever witnessed. Such is the general opinion on the last scene in the history of King Edward VII. As "Edward the Peacemaker," the fame of our late king will go down to posterity, yet his funeral was entirely a military one. Nine reigning European monarchs fol- lowed the remains of the late king to its resting place,—a worthy tribute to the esteem and regard in which he was held by all the crowned heads of the world. How mauy people witnessed the passing of the coffin from Westminster to Padding- ton on Friday last it is impossible to tell, but they were not very far short of two million souls. Every housetop that commanded a distant view of the cortege, even with the aid of field glasses, was densely occupied. On the roof of the Welsh Club premises, which is three hundred yards distant of Whitehall, nearly a thousand spectators were perched. Mr. William Jones, M.P., was busily occupied during the days of the lying in state in taking friends to witness the coffin in Westminster Hall. From morning to night he guided scores of his fellow-country- men through a side door in order to avoid the long wait in the five mile queue on the embankment. Sir Alfred Thomas, M.P., was present at the memorial service held on Friday at St. Margaret's Church, Westminster, and the small edifice was crowded by members and friends who were anxious to take part in this, last tribute to the memory of a beloved monarch. Members of the House of Commons were greatly slighted in the ceremonials of the past week. Whether this was intentional or merely an official oversight, it was most un- fortunate, as it would be a calamity to create a strained feeling between Commons and the Crown. No provision was made for M.P.'s to witness the procession beyond reserving a small standing position in the Horse Guards. whilst all the windows and balconies of Government offices along the route were placed at the disposal of junior clerks and their friends. Now, that the remains of King Edward have been placed in the Royal chapel at Windsor, the country is beginning to be interested in the doings of his successor. Possibly King George has not the energy of his father, but with tact and care he may be able to accomplish great deeds. It would be a glorious act on his part to commence his career by settling the little dispute between the Lords and Commons. The question of the Veto is only a small matter after all, and could be easily terminated with the proper definition of the rights and duties of the respective chambers. If the contest between the Lords and Commons is to be fought out under ordinary electioneering methods, no legislative work of any importance can be expected before 1913. Will the Irish and Welsh representa- tives suffer their respective claims to be shelved until after that period in order to avoid a constitutional break up ? One of the keenest members among the Nationalint, group in Westminster is Mr. Matthew Keating, who represents South Kil- kenny. lie is an ardent Irishman of true Celtic spirit, and inasmuch as he was born in Wales, is a connecting link between the Principality and the Emerald Isle. He speaks Welsh fluently, and is thoroughly conversant with the Gaelic. Not only is he a staunch supporter of all Irish movements in London, but is more keenly interested in Welsh affairs than the average Welsh re- presentative. Mr. Joseph Keating, the author, is an elder brother of Matthew Keating, the M.P. Mr. Joseph Keating still resides at Mountain Ash, his native home, and finds plenty of studies for the characters in his novels among the humble and heroic collier of the South Wales coalfields. His pen portraits, in some of the works published by him, are among the best we have had of the collier at home. The Board of Management of the Swansea Hospital has decided to add five new wards to the hospital, providing accommodation for 82 patients. The roofs of the new buildings are to be flat, thus allowing their use for the dual purposes of recreation and the open-air treatment. The scheme is an up-to-date one, for in addition to new kitchens, servants' bed-
