T Notes and 'f News. Westminster is once again the centre of all public interest. A large number of Parliamentary mem- bers have returned to town, and a busy Session is in store for them. A dastardly attempt was made in a section of the Unionist press last week to charge the Radical Government with the premature death of King Edward VII. Is the Veto resolution dead ? We hardly think that the progressive spirit in Parlia- ment will allow it to be shelved until next Session. Any delay at present would mean ruin to the Liberal Party. Mr. Lloyd George has returned to town from Wales feeling very fit after his few week's rest. Yet one can hardly call his vacation a rest, because he was constantly studying his new Budget or wielding a golf club! Ernest Myers, who was sentenced to eighteen months hard labour, on Monday, for stealing jewellery from the house of Mr. Alfred Mond, M.P., was asked by the judge What nationality are you ? His reply was Church of England, Sir Mr. J. Eldon Bankes, K.C., has decided to erect a parish hall at Saughton, Flintshire, in memory of his eldest son, who died some time ago. Mr. Banke's takes a keen interest in the affairs of the county of Flint. The rumour that Sir Alfred Thomas, M.P., has invited Mr. Theodore Roosevelt to a meeting of the Welsh Parliamentary Party next week is not confirmed. We have no doubt but that the American ex-president could give some timely advice to Sir Alfred how to govern his sentimental followers This is an age of compromises, and it is now argued that the Oath of Declaration made by the King on his Coronation should be amended. As it stands at present, it declares that the Catholic religion is idola- trous. The matter will, however, be discussed in Parliament before any change can be made. Wales has been famous for its number of Joneses, Evanses and Davieses, and this similarity of names has often led to many errors. The trouble has now been increased with the accession of King George to the Throne, and whenever his Majesty's name is mentioned, the bulk of the people take it as a reference to Mr. Lloyd George! As Prince of Wales, King George was the Chancellor of the Welsh University, but now the office is vacant, and it has been appropriately suggested in many influential quarters that it would be an appropriate act to confer this distinction on the greatest Welshman—Mr. Lloyd George. Was the first Prince of Wales born in Carnarvon Castle? Tourists who visit the Castle are shown a dingy little room in the Eagle Tower where the first Prince of Wales is said to have opened his baby eyes. It is true that the birth took place in Carnarvon town; but Mr. Albert Hartshorne, the arch- aeologist, once took the matter up, and showed that the Castle was hardly begun in the reign of Edward I. and not finished till more than thirty years after the babyhood of his son. Can Morien enlighten us on this matter ?
