These gather-i inwp v.- or so ing as thoiv e. right when iiie borough re.sulus were coming in, but they afford addi- tkmai evidence of the intense interest which the intii in the- street in politics just. now. -h.) are themselves not above showiug some interest in the ixsuits, have kept the crowds in excellent- order, though they have been hard put to it some- | times to make a way for the ordinary person who only wanted to get through the crowd and go about his business. Nobody talks about anything but politics just now, and it j will be a dull town when the people have all settled down again to their daily business. Fleet-street has been interested in the fate at the polls of a few well-known journalists. Mr.. W. Wilson, "P. W,W." of the "Daily News," who won one of the St. Paneras seats at the last election by only sixty-one votes, will now, one may suppose, watch Parliamen- tary business from the Gallery instead of from the floor of the House. Mr. J. Foster jPraser, the "Standard" Parliamentary j sketch-writer, essayed at Leicester what proved to be a hopeless task, and was beaten by a huge majority. Mr., Spencer Leigh Hughes has succeeded in getting a seat at I' Stockport, and thus becomes a member of Parlia.mentaud of the class to whose little weaknesses he has so often drawn attention in I the "Morning Leader." Mr. Hughes had made two previous attempts to enter the charmed circle, and his hghts at Bcrmondsey and J arrow will be remembered. The new Parliament, like its predecessors, will not suffer from a lack of lawyers. The Prime Minister, as everybody knows, was famous in the law before he became a great force in politics. Several- members of the Cabinet have also been eminent in the pro- fes skm., and there are famous barristers among the unofficial members on both sides. of the House, while the "lower branch" is also.well represented. A good many people have a prejudice against lawyer-members, though goodness knows why..There seems to be BO reason why a lawyer should not make as good a Parliamentary hand as a member of any other profession or a country gentle- man. The prejudice, however, undeniably exists, aiift, is of long standing. For a period in the ISt'h century lawyers were excluded altogether, but they found their way back to lite Souse again. King James I. had no love for the gentlemen of the long robe. On the me of one election he issued a proclamation in which he desired the constituencies "not to choose curious and wrangling lawyers, who HI ay seek reputation by stirring need- less questions." These characteristics may still be noticed in lawyers in Parliament, only they Are not peculiar to them. In-order t'o ensure the better protection of fit. Paul's Cathedral from fire, the authori- ties have decided to catry out a scheme which is to cost £ 20,000. The alterations to be ma-die are in connection with the heating arrangements, and action is being taken at the instance of the various insurance com- panies who are concerned in the preserva- tion of the building. The, generating stations at present are situated inside the Cathedral, and it is considered that they are in too close proximity to some of the most precious memorials. They are now to be removed to the outside. Another improvement will bo made- The workshops, which here, as in We-o,-mi-mi,er Abbey, are a permanent insti- tuikm, are, also inside. They adjoin the mew«"iak of Nelson and Wellington. A place is to be found outside for them also. and their removal will be the means of pro- I viding the authorities with a good deal of oxtr.& sjsacss. J Festival of Empire, which is to be held at fee Crystal Palace in May, promises to fee a great success. The whole of the Crystal Palace and grounds have been taken over by the Council, and all the States of the Kinpire will have exhibitions within the Palace. The whole project has been taken up most enthusiastically. From each State wHl oom 200 specially-appointed delegates., -asd: these will take pajrt in the final scenes of the Pageant of London, which is to be the central feature of "the festivities.

LIABILITY OF INFANT TRACERS. His Honour Judge Bray gave a considered judgment at the Clerkcnwell Police-court in an actfou brought by Sydney Newton, an elee- trical engineer, of A venue-road. Crouch-end, and Baker-street, N., against Montague Wootton Ramsay, a dentist, of Junction-road, Upper Hollo way. The action was brought to recover ;£26 16s" fid. for the installation of elee- trie light and fixing a telephone. The defence was that the elefeudant was under twenty-one at the time that the work was agreed to be dene for Y.10 or £ 12, and that it was badly done. The defendant also counter-claimed for repairing teeth and supplying new teeth. His Honour said that if an infant carried on a trade or business, things supplied for the purpose of, or to enable him to carry on the trade or business, were not necessaries, and lie cou-d not be made to pay for them. He held that the electric liht and telephone were not necessaries, and there would, therefore, b,3 judgment for the defendant, with costs on the claim. On the counter-claim he found that the dental work was done gratuitously and not for reward, so there would be judgment for the plaintiff, with costs.
PETROLEUM DANGERS. e At Bow-street, William Thbmas Chew, of Mile-end, was summoned for replenishing a tank on a light-, locomotive with petroleum in the presence tff artificial light. It was stated that he was in charge of a motor-van, and whilst filling the tank from a can h was sud- denly surrounded by flames, be having failed 11 to remove three larilps which were on the dash- board in close proximity to the tank. The dt'>ndant, who said he did not know it was dangerous, was fined 40s. and 23s. costs. At the same court. Thomas Goulding, of Hennig Brothers. High-street, Bloomsbnry, wns fined F-o and 2s. costs for keeping petro- leum otherwise than in pursuance of a license granted ttneler the Petroleum Act.
A BRAVE GIRL At an inquest at Wakefield, on Saturday, on a police constable, John Featherstone, aged 29, it was stated that the yoiiny woman with whom he had been keeping company, found him hanging by a .silk ham! kerchief from the top rail of the attic steps. She iii st tried to burn the handker- chief, but failing in thit; she got his knife ontof his pocket and cut him down while her mother held him. The young woman, Eva Lockwood, a school teacher, then fetched a policeman, but her lover was quite ¡j (ad. She gave evidence at the inquest, frequently breaking into tears. The Coroner: You are a very brave girl for doing what you did. The jury found that the deceased had hanged himself while temporarily insane through illness.
PASSENGERS ALARMED. An afternoon passenger train from Swansea to Paddjisiiton met with an alarming accident on Saturday after leaving Land ore station. The pro- jecting jib of a heavy travelling crane struck the cab 01 the locomotive, damaging the ironwork nd destroying the lo^k-oet. The jib was fortunately seen in time by the driver and-firemen, who were able to get out of the way. The train was pulled up promptly, but not before the firnt coach had been struck by the crane, which ripped off a por- tion of the roof, The passengers were otueh alarmed, Out no one was injured,
PRISONER'S DARING ESCAPE.. A daring esca.pe from custody was made op Saturday night by a young man named Frederielt Sugden, of Skiptou, Yorks, who had been con- victed at Skipton Police-eom t that day and was being taken by traiii. itt charge of two constables, to Armley Gaol. As the train, was rounding a curve at Shipley, Sugden made a sudden dash for the carriage door and jumped through the window on to the line, under which at that point the canal passes, A search was immediately made. | His cap was found on the canal bank, but tkera was no trace of Sugden.
Kit. A liiiCIILEK. sr;1:ing in Enst Fife a few days ago, Mr. Mqi'Mk said "Whatever may be the ultimate of t new Parliament, whatever of parties, and whatever the work in siore for it, one thing may be confi- <kvu-iv m'li. d. even at taL., stage, that it is- a winch will not have re-ceivedl from the great industrial areas of the country mandate or authority to interfere with our of Free Trade." In reply to hecklers, the Premier said he. proposed that the veto of the Horme of Lords should bo Ji.gji-t^ to the „ Vtinit. of a single Parliament, :11(1 'it waff int.ndcd to secure that by Act., Parliament. Mr. 'Asquitli ckciined to answer :any question ivs to the details of a measure Oif Home Rule tttii t tI), time for such a m'^iswre being íntro- c'm -v!. He was, however, in favour of no r .t of Home Rule wllie;11 would not pre- s* *♦ the complete supremacy the Imperial Govcrit«»ent. A DIFFERENT VIEW, Mr. W. Long, at Banbury, said one thing stood out a<>">ve all others, and that was that Fœ Trade, as a part of the fiscal policy of this eouiitry, bad beta declared by 3n overwhelm- ing mass of the people to be as dead as Queen Anne. THE COST OF LIVING. Mr. Lloyd George, speaking at Llangefni, Anglesey, last week, remarked that ir, Bal- Íeop. had written a letter on the subject of the cost of and clothing and the necessaries of life in this country, and had -stated that tho cost of living would not be increased by Pro- tection in this country. After reading Mr. BaKonr's letter, he wrote to the Board of Trade for certain returns, which were the re- sult of investigations made by his direction while he was at that Department and that morning he received official figures, which ehowed that while the British working-man only paid 15e. (id. a week for food and cloth- ing, the German paid 18s. 3d. He would rather have one such fact than a sackful of letters. "THE PEOPLE OF THE NORTH." "The most satisfactory feature of this ■election,?- said Mr. Winston Churchill at, St. Austell on Saturday, "has been the tre- mendous intervention of Lancashire, York- shire. and the people of the North. Here are these two tremendous counties where moot of th-* wealth of the country is produced, the greatest centres of industry and manu- freturiug production in the whole world, which have always been prominent in every movement towards fiscal aud political free- dom-—here they have come forward and by majorities unprecedented in the history of cur country given their verdict and cast their weight on the side of Free Trade and against the veto of the House of Lords." THE LIBERAL PROGRAMME. Speaking at a Liberal meeting held in West 1 Staffordshire, Sir Henry Norman, Assistant Postmaster-General, said the Liberal party, I when returned, would first deal with the XL use of Lords; secondly, pass the Budget; thirdly, pass the Bill for one man one vote; fourthly, a. Bill to provide for all elections .taking place on one d;iy; and, lastly, to make"" the corrupt practices -Act much stronger. WHAT WE MAY SEE. -—" Mr. Mastcrmnn, speaking at Redhili oil Saturday, said nothing coii'l oj would lie done by the Liberal •*pai't-v -till, they had broken the veto of the Lords. It might decided in th s Pailiament; it might re- quire another appeal to the country. We might sc'i another appeal to the country before many months were over. No power on earth could put the Unionists in a majority in the Parliament which was coming., POLICY OF THE LABOUR PARTY. Speaking at Leigh on Saturday, llr Arthur Henderson. M.P., chairman of the Labour party, said that in his judgment it I was almost like seeking to mop up the sea- with a. broom as to handle the unemployment proble-m by such methods as labour ex- changes and unemployed insurance. The j alternative policy of Tariff .Reform, the cure- all for unemployment, had failed in Germany and America, and so it was necessary to adopt the principle of the right to work. The Labour party would also advocate the reform I of the Poor-law on the1 lines of the minority report; they would advocate a great scheme of electoral reform, sweep away all anomalies, and have adult suffrage to include both men and women. HOME RULE. In a speech at Rathmines, Mr. John Red- mond, the leader of the Nationalists, said they- in Ireland were not such imbeciles and foois as to ask Mr. Asquith and the Liberal party to introduce a Home Rule Bill in the coming Session before rejecting or modifying the veto of the House of Lords. When the veto was dealt with that great obstacle to Home Rule was removed, and he had no fear of the future of the Irish question. They were not asking for what was understood in England as Separation. They were askings simply that in the government of their purely Irish affairs the public opinion of Ireland should be supreme. At
I LONELY WIDOW'S DEATH. The Brighten police were notified on Mon- dav morning that a strong smell of gas was proceeding from a house, in (teenville-place, and that attempts to rouse the occupier had failed. An entrance was forced, and it was discovered that gas was -escaping from ail the jéls of ;I stove, and that the occupier, Mrs. Mason, was lying dead in the upper part of the house. The chimney of the bed- room had been stopped by means of a. blanket. A dog, Mrs. Mason's sole com- panion,, was also dead. Mrs. Mason, a widow, carried on a confectioner's business j and had worried over the failure to recover some loans to friends. She had also com- plained of bad trade and of her loneliness.
