KILLED BY A LADT CYCLIST.-An inquest was held at Huntstanton on Saturday, touching the death of Mrs. Wherry, wife of Alderman Wherry, of Bourne, Lincolnshire. Mrs. Wherry was staying at Huntstanton, and when crossing the road at dusk was knocked down by a lady cyclist riding down hill. She sustained a fracture of the skull, and died in two houis. The cyclist, a stranger, went on almost directly, and her name is unknown.—The Coroner ad- journed the inquest for inquiries as to the cyclist. THE WELSH GOLF CHUIPlONSHIP. The final of the individual championship of Wales took place yesterday at Penarth. Thirty-six holes were played, the contestants being Mr. J. Hunter, of Penarth (the holder), and Mr. F. Woodhead, Rhyl. Charming weather prevailed. Mr. Woodbead was leading at the turn in the first round of 18 holes, Lut after this Mr. Hunter played splendidly, and he was two up at the end. Mr. Woodhead played brilliantly in the second round, and at the turn was all square with his opponent. Mr. Hunter, however, again took the lead, but Mr. Wood- head once more made up his deficit, and at the fifteenth hole was four up, thus winning the championship. TRADES UNION CONGRESS: A GENERAL FEDERATION.—The Congress resumed on Friday morning, when the principal subject of discus sion was the necessity for the establishment of a general federation of all trades in the country. Mr. Clarke, on behalf of the general railway workers, moved the appointment of a committee to consider the best scheme. It was argued that no single union was strong enough to resist combined capital, therefore it was of the utmost importance that the Trades Unions should be combined in one great federation. The resolu- tion was adopted. The Congress closed on Saturday, when it was announced that the new Parliamentary Committee had appointed Mr. Wilkie (Newcastle) chairman, and Mr. Inskip (Leicester) treasuror. An appeal would be issued immediately on behalf of the engineers now on strike, also for increased funds for Parliamentary Committee purposes. The meetings of the Federation Committee would depend on the amount subscribed. Resolutions were passed in sym- pathy with the postal employes, and calling for the enlargement of the scope of the Labour Department of the Board of Trade.
