SHREWSBURY FLORAL FETE. Although Wednesday turned out so wet after five o'clock that the performances at the Shrews- bury floral fte could not be carried on, nor the fireworks discharged, the sum taken at the gates was the largest on record, R752. Last year it was E679, and the year before £ the record year) 9727. On Thursday the weathet was fine till seven o'clock, when rain began to fall. The day was another record one in the matter of attendance, the sum taken at the gates up to six o'clock being 91,779 10s. Last year, on the same day, and up to the close of the show, the sum was £ 1,775. Including ticket holders, there were 60,000 on the ground. KISSING THE BOOK.—It is not unlikely, writes a London correspondent, that the Government will next session submit a bill te amend the law relation to the administrations of oaths in England, despite the Attorney General's ipse dimit that the sanitary objections to kissing the book have been exaggerated and that no necessity exists for altering the present system. In pressing for the abolition on sanitary grounds of the practice of kissing the book, Sir Walter Foster is supported by the leading medical men of the day, and although a final decision has not been taken by the Cabinet, there seems reason to believe that the experts will have their way. THE TELEGRAPHISTS' GRIEVANCES.—A con- ference of telegraphists from various parts of the United Kingdom was held at Liverpool on Sunday to decide upon the course of action to be taken in view of recent events. It was agreed that the Parliamentary work should be developed and extended, and every effort made to secure a recognition of the right of combination. It was also decided that a ballot should be taken of all the members as to the levies to be made 'to enable the Executive to carry on an energetic agitation.' With regard to the Newcastle clerks who had been punished for the parts they took in a recent meeting, it was resolved that they should be compensated from the funds of the Association.
