I OUR LONDON LETTER*
OUR LONDON LETTER* [From Our Special CorrespondetU.} From Southend right up to the Houses of Parliament there is a long- line of vessels of war, the greatest and most powerful Fleet the Thames has ever seen. London sees at last the Navy of which it hears so much, and for which it pays cheerfully. There are one hundred and fifty vessels, fully equipped and ready for war, representative of every type in the Navy, from submarines to Dread- noughts. If it fulfils no other purpose it at any rate shows the man in the street that Dreadnoughts, however important, are not the Navy. There are battleships, cruisers, scouts, torpedo boat destroyers, torpedo- boats, and submarines. Only the smaller vessels, it is true, are berthed in London itself, but Southend, where the mighty Dreadnoughts are anchored, is not very far, and a trip down the river affords a wonder- ful spectacle of Britain's naval might such as few landsmen ever get the opportunity of seeing. And all London is out to see the show. There the ships lie, just so many rather queer-looking ships; it needs the eye of imagination to see the inner meaning of the pageant and its tremendous importance. But it is a wonderful show, and it has given Londoners a keener interest in the Navy than they ever had before. As the discussion of the Budget clauses -an- winds its slow length in the Commons specu- lation as to what manner of treatment will be meted out to it by the Peers becomes keener. Will they accept it as it leaves the Commons, in accordance with precedent in '-he case of Bills of a financial nature, or will they amend it according t6 their ideas, re- jecting those parts of it with which they dis- agree entirely? To be or not to be, that is the question. A speech delivered by Lord Lansdowne a few nights ago is significant on this point. The Opposition leader in the Lords says that if he cannot say what the House will do he can at least say what it will not do. It is not at all likely, he says, to declare that it has no responsibility for the Bill and is therefore bound to swallow it whole. Then Mr. Churchill, in a week-end speech at Edinburgh, put the Government view that the Peers must swallow it whole. "No amendment, excision, modifying. or mutilating," he says, "will be agreed to by us. We will stand no mincing, and unless Lord Lansdowne and his landlordly friends choose to eat their own mince up again Par- liament will be dissolved." It will be men, therefore, that important issues hang upon the action of the Lords. Though, on the whole, the all-night sittings over the Budget are conducted with marked good humour, there have been one or two indications lately that tempers are worn pretty thin when it gets past midnight. It is a good long time since there was such a scene in the House of Commons as that in which Earl Winterton and Mr. Will Thorne were the principals the other morning. Labour members have their passions, even as other men, and Mr. Thorne, everybody admits, was justified in resenting Earl Winterton's very injurious and mistaken imputation. The House of Commons showed its sense of this by agreeing unanimously that the record of Mr. Thorne's expulsion for using an "un- parliamentary" expression to the noble earl should be expunged from the journal of the I House. This was not by any means the first. time that one member has called another a liar in Parliament. Many members who wit- nessed the scene the other night recalled another, in which one of the actors was a much greater man than either Earl Winter- ton or Mr. Thorne. Mr. Chamberlain was j speaking, and Mr. John Dillon let fall a remark about traitors. Mr. Chamberlain broke off, and said grimly, "The hoa. member should be a good judge of traitors. Mr. Dillon, in a white heat of passion, re- torted, "The right hon. gentleman is a —— liar! The minute recording Mr. Dillon's expulsion for that little speech still stands upon the journal of the House. ] What a rush there would have been for | places on the Council steamers this week if they were not being sold by auction' at scrap- iron prices! With the Fleet in the Thames probably a great many Londoners are now regretting the absence of the steamboats more acutely than they ever did before. But the regrets are vain; the boats are being dis- posed of, though very slowly. Five more were sold the other day for 92,70&oue going at E705 and the other four at the ridiculous price of E500 each. Whatever one may thiiik ¡ as to the wisdom or unwisdom of the Council running a service of steamers on the river it is certainly pitiful that these boats, which cost the ratepayers £ G,50G each, and are. still in excellent condition, should be sold for such absurd prices. Sixteen more remain to be got rid of. There was not a single bid for one or two of these, and the bidding for the others did not reach the reserve. They lie, a most embarrassing burden, upon the hands of the Council, and at this rate there will probably be some of them still left when the new Council takes over the duties and re- sponsibilities of the present one. An interesting experiment is to he made on a Sunday in August or September, when, if the committee which has the matter in hand can possibly arrange it, there will, not be a horsed vehicle in the whole of Westminster. Since motor-vehicles have become 80 nume- rous and popular the prophecy hae been fre- quently made that the horse will soon disap- pe ar altogether from the streets. There are, j however, still a good many hanaom cabs and horse-omnibuses. The "homeless Sunday" us designed to show that the traffic of London can quite easily and conveniently be worked by motor-vebielea ionly. Among the advan- j tages claimed tUtt t( gain m. cleanliness, less noiae, and a more aniform rate of travelling and ooneeqaently ggefter mfcty for the tnblJfi TImm p, f auy be .,j6 o i good deal of detail work to be done before a "horseless Sunday can be achieved, but the committee lias a faith which ought to move mountains. Horse 'buses, it believes, will be induced to turn back when they reach the boundaries of the area of experiment, and passengers will change into motor 'buses; hansom cabbies will drop their fares, who will then step into taxicabs, of which a larger number than usual will be available doctors who still cling to their carriages and horses will be induced to try motors for the day, and BO on. The result of the experiment will be 4waited with interest. Women's Labour Day at Earl's Court gave those who looked on plenty to think about as to the part which vsomen take in the work of the nation. There were no less than 70 trades and professions represented in the de- monstration, from domestic servant8 to women doctors and novelists. Most interest- ing of the many items in the programme were the exhibitions of the various kinds' of work in which women are engaged in these days, and naturally the Sweated Industries Section secured a great deal of sympathetic attention. In this section were represented match-box making, tailoring, chain-making, and various other kinds of labour at which women slave day after day, earning barely enough to keep body and soul together. There was a young girl, for instance, whose awful drudgery at chain-making for a week brings her in only six shillings for two cwts. of chain, and from that beggarly sum a deduction of two shil- lings is made for fuel. In Kingsley's "Three Fishers" it is men who must work while women weep, but the women who earn their bitter bread in these ways must work and weep too, more's the pity. A. E. M.
REGISTRATION OF NURSES.
REGISTRATION OF NURSES. When the International Congress of Nurses met at the Church House, Westminster, on Tues- day, reference was made to the question of State Registration. The Hon. S. HoHand, chairman of the London Hospital, said opinion on the subject was very far from being unanimous. By registration the doctors and the public would be lulled into a false sense of security, thinking that they had got a good nurse; yet everybody knew that pass- ing an examination did not make a woman a good nurse. Once the State guaranteed that a woman was a fit nurse she could not be removed for sleep- ing at night, for neglect, for frightening child- ren, or for want of tact or gentleness, or for taking too much drink or taking drugs provided she did not create a scandal, except those mak- ing the charge were prepared to prove it before a council, and they must realise how extremely difficult it would be unless she was drinking to such an extent that it had become a public scandal.
A "DRINKER OF WATER."
A "DRINKER OF WATER." A statue to the late Sir Wilfrid Lawson, M.P., which has been erected in the Victoria Embank- ment Gardens was unveiled on Tuesday by Mr. Asquith. At a preliminary meeting in the Committee Room of Westminster Hall the Prime Minister paid a tribute to Sir Wilfrid Lawson. The pro- gress of the temperance. cause was largeiy due to his exertions, but he was no fanatic. "Among all the votaries of Bacchus there was no more genial soul, no merrier temper, no wittier tongue, than was to be found in this confirmed drinker of water." Yet his wit never wounded, never won him an enemy. Two Suffragettes, one with a megaphone, interrupted the unveiling ceremony, aid a leege toy balloon with "Votes for Women "on it was floated over the gardens.
JUDGE REPROVES DOCTORS.
JUDGE REPROVES DOCTORS. An application was made at the Old Bailey on Tuesday for yet another postponement of the trial of Harry Benson in the Felt ham's Bank case, on account of his health. Drs. Ewart and Peachey said that it would be dangerous to Benson's Jife to try him at these sessions. In reply to the Treasury counsel Dr. Ewart said he had not been told that for the past month Benson had been working at an office from ten to six daily. The Lord Chief Justice said he was quite dis- satisfied with the affidavits and with the evi- dencs of the two medical men, and it was not creditable of them to come and state what they had without proper inquiries. But for the ful- ness of the calendar the case would be taken this sessions. He postponed it to the Septem- ber sessions.
FATAL EXPERIMENT. At an inq-neot held on Tuesday at Swansea on William Robinson, a lad of fifteen, it was stated that he and another boy having got pos- session of some carbide, put it into a hole in the ground, covered it with a tin, and allowed a stream of water to run into it. They then threw matches into the hole until an explosion resulted. Robinson was blown into the air, and died of his injuries.

COAL CRISIS. 'J c
COAL CRISIS. J c BALLOT TO BE TAKKN. 1 The Miners' Federation of Great Britain has H decided to take a ballot of the members as to a. jB general stoppage in consequence of the reduction H of wages in Scotland. There seems little doubt. ■ that the voting will be in favour of a national W strike, but there are hopes that the interven- S tion of Mr. Churchill on behalf of the Board I of Trade will have good results. I! The Miners' Federation unanimously resolved B that, pending the decision of the ballot, financial | support equal to 10s. per week per member b6 I paid to the Scottish miners. The ballot papers are to be returned by July 27. A special conference will be called for July 28. The executive committee of the Miners! Federation afterwards met, Mr. Enoch Edwards, M.P., presiding. The committee decided upon the form of ballot. The question on the ballot paper will be — "Are you in favour of determining your con- tract for employment so that you may stop is sympathy with the Scottish miners? There are considerably over 600,000 members of the federation—practically the whole of thø urderground workers. It is the intention of the federation, if it be decided to put Rule 20 into operation, to issue the notices so that the strike may begin on the same date throughout the country. Rule 20, under which the ballot is to be taken, i reads "That whenever any county, federation, or district is attacked on the wages question all members connected with the society shall tender | a notice to terminate their contracts, if approved | of by a conference called to consider the ad- [ visability of such joint action being taken." Mr. Churchill received at the Board of Trade offices representatives of the Scottish colliery owners and miners, the majority also being mem- bers of the Scottish Conciliation Board. The offer of the President of the Board of Trade to intervene with the object of bringing about a settlement of the present dispute, and avoiding a strike or lock-out, was provisionally accepted, and a meeting of the Scottish Conciliation Boara will be held in the near future.
BISHOP V. VICAR,
BISHOP V. VICAR, X vicar's strange treatment of a messenger from his bishop was described in the Court of Arches on Monday, when the Bishop of Oxford instituted a suit against the Rev, Oliver Partridge Henly, vicar of St. Mary's," Wolverton, in respect of certain matters of ritual. According to counsel, the bishop issued "monition" restraining defendant from keeping bread and wine upon the altar which had been consecrated. Later the bishop's chaplain and an archdeacon attended even- ing service at the defendant's church, and found a tabernacle on the altar and a light 1 burning in front of it; in his sermon the vicar preached the doctrine of transubstan- tiation. Giving evidence of the serving of the "monition," William Henry Partridge, clerk to the registrar of the diocese, said that Mr. Henly sent down a message that he woulA not see him, but witness said that he could not leave the vicarage till he had seen Mr, Henly. The defendant then came to the top of the stairs, and said that he would black witness". eye. Witness declined to go, and defendant, ex- claiming, "D you, get out of my house! buttoned his coat, rushed down the stairf* and tried to turn witness out. ] Defendant did not appear. Judgment watt reserved. £ The Dean, in delivering judgment- on Tues- § day. said the practices indulged in were un- doubtedly illegal. He would not finally dis- pose of the that d%v. but adjourn it for a fortnight, with the intimation that unless som-hiLia: occurred in the interval to alter materially Mr. Henly's position towards liia- Bishop and that Conrl he would On that pronounce sentence of deprivation and condemn. him in the costs of the proceedings.
A CONFESSION OF MURDER.
A CONFESSION OF MURDER. A man who gave the name of Harold Hall went into Bridewell Police-station, Bristol, on Sunday niaht, and said that he had com. to surrender himself for the murder of the iprl Kitty Roman, who was found dead in aer room in Miller's court, Spitalfields, London, on July 2. In a detailed statement he said: "1 went with her to a room at the top of the house. I asked her to light the gas. She replied there was none. She asked me to1 light a candle. I struck a match, and found ? £ a candle on the mantelpiece at the side of the bed. I turned ray head round and saw her drawing her hand from my inside coat pocket. I said, 'Is that your game?' At the same time I flew at her in a rage and strangled her, and thrust the knife in the side of her neck." The man when brought up in court oil Monday made no answer to the charge. He was remanded pending the arrival of Scot-- land Yard detectives. The Bristol police be- lieve that the confession is genuine.
STRANGE INCURABLE DISEASE,
STRANGE INCURABLE DISEASE, A remarkable and incurable disease was re-, lerred to in the City of London Court oil Monday, when Philip J. Davis, aged fifteen, printer's assistant, sued the Great Eastern London Motor Omnibus Company (Limited^ to recover damages for a disease which bad Jeveloped as the result of his being run over )v one of the defendants' motor-omnibuses. The boy was an in-patient for many weeks at guy's Hospital, where skin grafting was re- torted to, pieces of skin on one lg being re- noved with a razor to the other. These operations, however, were not successful, and T teloid had supervened. Medical evidence was given tftat the plaintiff's disease Was in- surable, and that it might be tuberculous. Vobody really knew what keloid was. Dr. Lawson Brown said that keloid was rery cojttmdn among the natives of West Africa, being due to the use of dirty knives '0 cn marking their skins. Ultimately the plaintiff agreed to accept £7,5 as compensation. .'„
