TRAGIC DEATH OF A SERVANT GIRL. SUICIDE FOLLOWS CONFESSION OF PETITY THEFTS. INQUEST AND VERDICT. A most tragic story was told at an in- quest held on Saturday by Mr Pentir Wil- liams, coroner for North Carnarvonshire, and a jury of which Mr Reeves Hughes was elected foreman, into the eirQum- stances attending the death of Isabel Steadman in Llandudno Cottage Hos- i pital, the previous day. The only relief to the sad story was the knowledge that the principal witness, Samuel Ellis, an en- gineer in the employ of the Great Orme Tramway, had acted in such a manner as to merit, the unstinted commendation of the Coroner and jury. Air E. E. Bone was present, at the enquiry on behalf of Mr and Mrs W. A. Powell, in whose employ the gJÏrl was when she committed the rash act of setting her clothing on fire, fol- lowed upon a confession of a series of petty thefts. THE! EVIDENCE. William Alfred Powell, the first witr ness, said he was a solicitor's clerk, and resided at Plas Gwyn, West Shore, Llan- dudno. Isabel Steadman was in his ser- vice as nurse-housemaid, and it was her body the jury had just viewed. She wa,s 21 years of age, and had been in his em- ployment for several months. One of her duties was to take his child at least once every day to Lansdowne House, School. On Thursday, afternoon the Principal of school, Miss Raw, came) to his house with a list of articles missing from the hall of the school, and said the maid had been watched that morning and seen to take something from the coats in the hall. The girl was called, and Mjiss Raw accused her of taking the articles, which included hat- pins, gloves, and boots. She denied the accusation, and said she could take them to the shops where she had bought certain articles in her possession corresponding to the description of missing articles from the school. The interview took place about seven o'clock, and during it he told the girl that if she had taken the things it would save a lots of trouble if she confessed, and that if she denied it he would have to get, some one down there. If she had owned up noth- ing more would have been said as far as he was concerned, but he did not know what Miss Raw's intentions were. When Miss Raw had gone the girl admitted the thefts, saying: "Yes, I did take them," meaning the articles mentioned, and adding that she, took them from the lobby. While she was in his service the girl was a thoroughly good girl, and was looking for- ward to going home for a holiday to her parents at Whittington. He had occasion to leave the house shortly after, and when he returned about ten minutes later the affair had happened. Witness then described the, carrying of the girl to the house, the calling of Dr. Bold Williams, and the journey to the hospital, where they arrived between nine and ten o'clock. The girl was conscious almost the whole time, but said nothing to him beyond, "You'll forgive me, master. If I get well will you promise not to tell my pa." She was not in a condition to ask any ques- tions as to' how she got on fire. A CONFESSION Miss Wright-, matron at the Cottage Hospital, was called, and said that Isabel Steadman was admitted on Thursday night suffering from severe .burns and shock. The face had not been touched, but, with that exception and the feet the whole body had suffered. She considered the case hopeless from the first owing to the shock to the system. She rallied a little dur- ing the night, but died on Friday after- noon. "Did she tell you anything about the burning," asked the Coroner? "Yes, she said she did it herself," re- plied witness, "because she was ashamed. I asked her what she was ashamed of, and she replied she had taken some hat pins." Mrs Powell, wife of the first witness, also gave evidence, and said that when Mr Powell left the house she was in the dining room, and a minute or two later thought she smelt something burning, and rushed to the kitchen and through the window saw a blaze in the garden. She realised that it was the g,3arl girl, and that all her clothing was ablaze, and ran to call assistance from next door, and the, next thing she saw was the girl running: up the road and a man after her. She saw no more, because being in 'a, very weak i state of health she was carried back to the | house. J Samuel Ellis, Tygwyn Road, engineer in the employ of the Great Orme Tramway Company, said that between seven and eight o'clock on Thursday night when walking at the back of Great Orme's Road he saw flames in the back yard of what proved to be Mr Powell's house, but thought, someone was burning something there, and did not suspect anything; else until he looked again, and sow someone run through the kitchen of the house in a mass of flame. He saw the person through the window, the blinds of which were not drawn, run towards the front door and he dashed to the passage which ran alongside the house. By the tame he got to the front road, the girl, however,* was quite fifty yards away, running' as f hard as she could in a mass of flame. He I followed at full speed, but she had gone another fifty yards before he caught her. While running he had taken off hisovercoat and when he got up to her wrapped it round her head. Her arms were up, but he pulled them down and got her on the ground. Then he wrapped the overcoat tightly round her and rolled her over on the ground until the flames were extin- guished. It did not, take long to get the flames out, especially when another came and helped, but she smouldered for some time until Mr Powell came and covered her with his overcoat. All the loose I clothing was burnt, but witness ton1 -her collar off and threw it on the road. The only thing she said before help came was "God forgive me, I was ashamed," which she repeated in an attitude of prayer three times. Ellis then described how she was car- ried home and how he with flour attempt- ed to ease her pain until the doctor arrived, and he went home. This was all the evidence called, and the Coroner in summing up, said it was very plain that, Ellis had acted all through very sensibly, and had done the right thing at exactly the right, moment-, and in that way would have done what he could to save her life had that, been pos- sible. Inspector Owen: He is an ambulance man, sir. The Coroner I gathered that from his evidence. The jury, after a short, consultation in camera, returned a verdict of death from burns, and that there was no evi- dence to. show the state of her mind. They also added a rider statiing that Eillis was entitled to great praise for the way he had acted. Ellis was then called into the room, and the Coroner conveyed to him the jury's praise in suitable terms. When the jurymen were signing; their names a question by the Coroner neces- sitated the jury re-consideringi their ver- dict, and eventually the, words "Self- inflicted" were added to the verdict. It was stated after the inquest that, the mother of the deceased girl had at one time being in an asylum.
DEATH; OF MR, G. HERBERT BROWN, J.P. We cull the following from last week's Yachtsman," the late Mr Brown, who was brother-in-law to Dr. H. Bold Williams, being well-known in Llan- dudno, he having frequently visited our bay with his yachts, "Satellite" and "Chanticleer" —■ It is with deep regret we record the sud- den death on the 12th inst.,of Mr G. H. Brown, commodore of the Royal North of Ireland Y.C. Mr Brown, always a very keen yachtsman, was one of the writer's j first friends. In the olden days he de- signed and raced the length class 25-footer Haleyone, in 1884, with astonishing suc- cess. This boat has recently been referred to in the course of our articles on model- yachting as a most notable little yacht, meeting, the best boats that Wat,son.1 Fife and Paton could turn out that year. Later on he entered the Belfast Lough No. 1 O.D.O., with a yacht of the same name (now owned by Col. R. G. Sharman-Craw- ford), and raced her with great success. He next purchased the yawl "Satellite, 69 tons, and converted her into a cutter, in which he did quite a lot of cruising-a form of recreation of which he was ex- tremely fond. About five years ago he bought the yawl "Chanticleer," 122 tons, a painting of which, by Mr W. L. Wylie, R.A., was. presented to him this year by the members of the R.N.I.Y.C. Deceased was -jiji.Lilodore of the Ulster Sailing Club, and in the year 1897 that organisa- tion was amalgamated with the Cultra, Sailing Club, forming the North of Ire- land Yacht Club, which now enjoys the prefix "Royal." It, was chiefly owing to his exertions that the new club attained n, the beginning such popularity and success. He was not a, mere figure-head, but made it his business to enter intimate- ly into everything, having for its object the promotion of tTie Club's interests. It, will, indeed, be difficult to find a worthy successor to such a genial, kindly and generous officers. Visitors to the annual regattas found the pleasure of their stay vastly enhanced by the deceased's warm and kindly welcome, for no matter where he might be cruising or making holiday, he invariably returned to Cultra for the great event of the year, and always placed his yacht at the disposal of the Com- mititee. The news of his death came as a shock to a large circle of friends, for though we, have only given a synopsis of Mr Brown's yachting career, he was pro- minent in many other directions—social, political, and sporting—in ;all of which by his genial personality he made many sincere friends. At a special convenedmeet- ing of the R.N.I.Y.Con Monday, a resolu- tion of the deepest, sympathy with Mrs Brown and her family was unanimously adopted.
♦ NATURE JOTTINGS. DECEMBER. 23.No day of the year is too early to find the chickweed and groundsel in flower, nor for the daisy to open wide its florets, but last. Saturday I found on a hedgebank a. dandelion in full flower, which I think is early. Of course, there are still many hawkweed blossoms— late summer's flowers—in the fields which soon catch the eye and which, to the majority, are, because, they have the ap- pearance of, "dandelions," but the com- mon dandelion is not ordinarily a plant which flowers in December but rather is fostered by the more stirring influence of early spring. Truly it has been a peculiar year, and now, Christmas is here finding the countryside full of the spirit of spring. Winter, if and when it comes, must op- press a good deal if 'it is to gain distinc- tion a little frost, at ni;ght would have trifling results.

A PROTEST. To the Editor. Dear Slir ,Once, :again I send a letter of protest against the pernicious practice which is being carried on in our midst, I refer to the hordes of young chldren who pester shopkeepers, and their customers by thrusting to; their notice a begrimed missionary box or equally greasy collect- ing card. It is quite tiiine this, was put a stop to once and for all. I cannot think what the parents are thinking about in allowing their children to annoy the pub- lie in this way. On questioning one re- cent caller at my place of business as to what she was collecting for, she replied: "I do not know, another girl outside gave it to me." In my opinion it is the first step in a downward career, and cannot help but be harmful to the children so employed. By publishing this letter in your widely read journal you will be con- ferring a favour on scores besides myself, who are being daily pestered by this grow- ing evil.—Yours, etc., A LONG SUFFERER,
ILLUSTRATED LECTURES. To the Editor Dear Sir,—Apropos of leCitures it. has occurred to me they are, an excellent means of education, which can be made ¡ interesting to the most, indifferent. A de- lightful road to gaining information by .means of story and lantern. Last week our English Baptist friends had a lecture on Canada, by Mir Waunaker, who showed some pictures OJ Western Canadian life and scenery, witl the view of bringing before the audience the great, need of spiritual help, by means of Mission Churches in those vast tracts of country, where the lonely settler has often to go without any religious servic at all, because of the long distance be tween those already existing, which art "few and far between." On Tuesday, January 26th, anothej most interesting lecture will be given a the English Baptist, Church. Subject "The Berlin Bapttist Congress and a torn in the Luther Country." As two residents of Llandudno were delegates to the Bap- tist Congress, held in Berlin in Augusi lasiij, we shalf expect, to hear many items of interest. A, third lecture, to be given on Tuesday. February 16th (this time in the Church House, under the presidency of the Rec- tor of Llandudno) is one by the Rev. Hugh O. Ellis, of the Religious Tract Society, entitled "Round the, World with the R.T.S., Canada, Japan, China, India.' Those who have heard Mr Ellis, are likely to want to hear him again, and his pic- tures are always a, success. As the lectures are free, a, collection will be taken. All are earnestly and cordially ,in vi.te,d .Yours, etc., L. R,
THE TRAMS ON WEST SHORE. To the Editor Dear Sir,—On looking over the month- ly proceedings of our District Council on Wednesday last., I notice that, on a resolu tion moved by Mr Mlc-Alaster it was sough to compel the Tramway Company to ru their cars to Dale Street, and I wondere how many members were aware of the in porta rice of this resolve. The preser terminus is at, the junction of five ways i a most central position, and the cars whether coming, going;, or standing, car be seen all ways. I may state that I had a conversatic with Mr McMaster upon this subject somt time ago, and I then asked what purpose it would serve by compelling the Company to run nearly half-a-mile, taking botl ways into consideration, and the oul) reply was that the Company would require more power from the Council. Tin effect of this would be to. wilfully put th .0 Company to the expense of pounds pe- week so that the Council might, receiv somewhere about sixpence in the pound o: the money so wasted. Moreover, at tl present time the Clomapny are enabled run a fifteen minutes' service, and whic cannot be done if they are compelled t run to the Sandhills. So far as I have been able to ascertain, opinion of the West Shore is unanimous that to carry out this resolution will 1 deprive the residents of what, is at p; its greatest convenience. Now all we ask is that the members of the C< shall visit the district and see, for selves.—Yours faithfully, S. THEWL
THE SALARY OF THE SURVEi To the Editor. Dear Sir,—I have read with feeli. some pain the discussion which took ( as reported in the "Advertiser" last v with regard to the salary of Mr Step! son, the Surveyor to the Council, at meeting of the Llandudno 'Council. It seems to me to be a rather niegari O O and cruel manner to be treating1 a, m who has been in the service, of the Con oil for 16 years because he has ha¡\ tJ misfortune to be ill. Gentlemen as a rule do not treat the employees in this shabby manner, and does not redound to the credit, of the Llaj dudno Council to act in this pettifoggij spir|it .■—Yours faithfully, rCiHARLES: EiCKEiRSLET Fulwell, Great Orme's Road, Llandudno. 21st Dec. 1908. P.S.—I shall be glad to subscribe towards a fund to refund Mr Stepher the amount, deducted.
