The pieseiit ridiculously etieap price is accoun ed for by the fa* t that the stock was dealt in fur the first time on Saturday last, a.nd I have the slightest hesitation in saying faat the "tock will have a very sharp an rapid rise to at least 85. Everybody knows tha people get very niuch less interest ror the. r money now in everything than they used to do. Hence the very numerous body who are eontinualiy Cf.L8tiug about fo an inv83tmeut for thei, money- lusb most eagei y after anytning in the nature of a Preference Stock which can be m de to re urn them tile merest -hade uver £ 3 per reut. per annum, and at the present price this stock would show a. return un the woney inyested (Ii aOOl,1\ £ 4 3s.

My clientele n mbera some th' usand*. and I think most of th-m would better appreciate aeon- "taut succr saiou of handsome i/rotits during ttte year with i'ttle risk than one nuue pront. followed or i-er- baps preceaeu by a stream of ds« strous losses, iiwork- ingthe tw" or h' ee private Pools prior to sending out ndvice to my clients geu-ra ly, mv great iiie*. was to make as much profit as possible, IrreSpec ive of ri k hut when, encouraged by my success, I sent out to all my clients idvice cf Pools, I fou; d he sub'crip. lion- flowing in so la.tieiy nd so freely thatl.ame to the conclusion, whicri was Iso urjjea upon me by many of my clients, that ruy fir-t object must be io endeavour to keep hese i irge sums of money as safe as possible, allll treat the Pools more a an invest- menc than speculation, even though the accruing profit might not be so great. To toi-, IEay be addeu, for "he satisfaction of those clients whu like to follow in the da.iy jour, als the prices of the Pool Stock in wlii h they may be interested that a temporary f 11 need cause ttelll neither anxiei y nor alarm, as not only do I, when commencing purchases, hold a large rotective reserve in hand, but a Jpwer price permits avera- ging by further and cheaper purchases when deemed advisable.

It may save trouble if point out to subscribers they cannot tran-fet to a future Pool any- moneys from a Pool n t finally closed. For instance, die ts can tra sfer to this week's Pooi any balance grinding to their credit m the North British Ordinary Pool, closed on Saturday, bu they cannot tranater from the Chatham 1 irdinary Pool at pr-sent, as it is not finally closed.

T H U RSDA Y, SEPTEMBER 20, 1888. AN INCONTROVERTIBLE FACT. MEETINGS of Liberal Associations are almost daily occurrences throughout South Wales, We hope all members of Parlia- ment concerned will duly note these important incidents in the political history of the people whom they represent. These meetings have a meaning. In fact, they are full of significance. They go far to show I that every Welshman is stretching out his hand to his brother politician, and counselling that union and co-operation ¡ against which all the fury of opposition must spend itself in vain. These meetings are not confined to particular localities. I They are not mere dots here and there. They range from Monmouthshire to Tenby, and from Merthyr and Aberdare, or even further north, to the towns and villages I which lie along the southern coast. Similar resolutions are passed by acclamation at them all. The Welshmen who do not go to j Parliament are doing their best to furnish ample evidence of their almost absolute unanimity on all matters especially affecting Wales. We believe that the Welsh Liberal press, English and vernacular, will give this j movement united support, and that the result will inevitably be an irresis- I tible Welsh party outside the gates of Parliament. We put it in this form, but, of course, it must go further. The in- j terior must be a faithful reflection of the J exterior. This, we expect, will be insisted } upon, and not only so, but readily and wil- I hngly acted upon by all true Liberals in the House. The Liberal party and the Welsh party are not necessarily two separate bodies. The point of separation occurs just I where Welshmen demand for themselves a legislative measure which English Liberals are not quite prepared to demand for England. An English Liberal may think of j several reforms which should have the I precedence of Disestablishment, while Welsh I Liberals are of one opinion as to the para- mount claims of such a measure over all others. What Welshmen expect is that their representatives in Parliament will stand firmly together on such questions; and will demand the support of the united Liberal party in Parliament, and that they will even make terms or conditions to the effect that their support of the party will depend upon these measures being placed in the forefront of the coming struggle. We hope that the Welsh members will fully recognise this, and that they will be as strictly organised in Parliament as their supporters are outside. Every Welsh constituency is going in for this, because they all see no other course open to them. They have been put off until they have got sick tired of waiting. They know that Welsh representation n ill not mean a bed of j roses during the sittings of Parliament, but tho-e who do not like the conditions know how to get rid of them. No man will be a member by coercion, but those who accept the responsibility will, of course, be expected to discharge it, even if it be not, in the highest degree, a pleasure. We want fighting men for Wales, and we must have them.
HOW TO P OTEST AD YET SAY NOTHING. TT is amusing to observe the tactics of the limes during its enforced silence on I, "Parnellism and Crime." It would be more than unseemly to make editorial comments I on matters which must be determined by a royal commission, but what is to hinder "A Bewildered Student," "An Amateur I "Bailiff," or even "Veritas," from spinning yarns all the day long? Who these correspondents are the public are nowhere informed. We make no doubt of their honour. Doubtless they are all honourable mlm, and it is even possible that their anonymity may not be due to any lack of courage on their part. At the same time there must be some reason for allowing statements openly made by so well-known and trustworthy a politician as Mr SHAW- LEFEVRE to receive an unqualified denial from a person of whom we know nothing but that he calls himself Veritas," and alleges that he is living on the spot. What is the value of such a denial ? Wa have, on the one hand, the solemn assertion of a countryman in whom the public have every reason to place their confidence. That man makes an assertion, and makes no scruple at.all about putting his name to it as a guarantee of the bona Ades of the statement and is it to be assumed that because some other person, possibly too contemptible to attract any attention in propria persona, gives Mr l"JlAW- LEFEVRE the lie direct, impartial men will accept the latter statement as a finishing blow to Mr SHAW- LEFEVRE The bare idea is ludicrous. We might as well resort to augury or to spirit-rapping for contradictions as accept them in this disguised form. To the general public, "Veritas" is nobody. His word may be nothing but lies rie gives his address, to be sure, but it is equally vague. It is only "County Louth, Ireland," but even with this information by way of sup- plement, the letter-carriers of Louth must be more than usually clever if they can find the writer of the letter provided 1 he wishes to send reply by post, Those who read the anonymous communications to which we refer will, perhaps, see something between the lines. An unsigned editorial article is made on the authority of parties well known, but an unsigned letter is, on matter" of fact, of no value whatever. No one knows this bettar I than the conductors of the Times. They I would never allow such charges to be made I were they only free to launch forth on their own behalf. They are doing their best. It would, perhaps, be too bad to blame them for it, but we may expect such entertainment of the sort between this and the close of the inquiry, j]
SWANSEA ECHOES. BY SENTINEL. THE FBBK LIBRARY. THE full significance ot the important report unanimously adopted on Tuesday by the mem- bers of the free library committee does not seem to be thoroughly appreciated. As I understand it, the adoption of the scheme for the future management of the library contained in the report is a complete justification of ibe OLD library committee, and it marks the total failure to make out even the semblance of A case of those town councillors who last November fought so hard against the committee and all its works. This is emphasised by the fact that though the then. leaders of the opposition to the mode of managing the library were present on Tuesday, they refrained from uttering a word of criticism, and actually acqui- esced jn the unanimous adoption of the report. It must strike the outside observer that these cries for economy raised annually near the month of November are uttered rather with a view of obtaining favour at the bands of the ratepayers than of improving their public institu- tions—one, in fact, was placed in peril of collapsa last year. And now that November is comiog mumijapam, we may expect to hear some more of this kind of talk. In fact, on Tuesday dis- cussion was raised by a councillor which WAS evidently addressed rather to the outside unthink- ing public than to the more thoughtful onea inside or outside the chamber. I will not recapitulate all the circumstances be- yond explaining that though all th local bookbinders had been invited to tender for the binding of the books, none bad responded, and the contract was4 therefore, given outside the town, this councillor insisted on puttiDK AN amendment which stated that the local trades- men should be asked to contract, and then he said something about the shamefulness of spending public money outside the borough. I agree that as much as possible of the ratepayers' money should be expended amongst them but if such as are in the particular trade capable of earning the money will not take steps to do eo, wily talk clap-trap like this ? THE COUNCIL MEETING. As I predicted, the council meeting did NOT last long. It just extended to the luncheon hour, and would have been over before then had not the councillors, ashamed of finishing their work so soon, prolonged their speeches, and generally introduced talk wherever they found a chance. I The proposal to erect blast furnaces at the South Dock created some alarm, for though the construction of three new furnaces in the town would have the effect of increasing the trade of the port by 4,000 tons a week, AND the earnings of the labouring classes by several hundreds, the councillors did not SEEM to relish the idea of having the residential part of the town affected. Consequently IT is now quite probable that the works will never be seen near the South Dock they will either have now quite probable that the works will never be seen near the South Dock they will either have to be erected at the East Dock, or not be erected at all. Possibly one great cause of opposition was the fact that the gentleman who made the application to the corporation is somewhat disliked because of his pretensions to the owner- ship of the foreshore—a pretension the corporation persistently neglects to challenge, as challenge it they should. HOW TO BECOME MAYOR. THE great question of interest was that which wound up the meeting. It was introduced by Dr Rawlings, and dealt with the mode of selecting mayorf, and suggested the adoption of the some- what objectionable principle of making the oldest men mayors. Hi speech was-like all his utter- ances-thorougbly to the point, and,what is more, it contained a complete description of the way mayors are nowadays made in Swansea. I ha ve behind the scenes for some years, and it has often been a matter of surprise to me that men of the highest character and position could consent to ac- cept a position of honour at the sacrifice demanded. Dr Rawlings fearlessly said exactly what he meant; but when he had finished there seemed considerable hesitation on the part of his col- leagues in seconding1 his motion. Had a motIOn, accompanied by such a speech as his, been allowed to fall through from want of a seconder, it would have looked as though the means the doctor describeii were considered by the corporation thfl correct ones to adopt. But 1\lr Monger declined to sanction this, and then the motion caDle before the meeting. Mr Maliphant no time in jumping into the breach, and in a speech of the kind calculated to impress a jury, pointed to a board which, in letters of gdd, contains the names of all who have passed the chair since 1335. Would, he asked, such honoured men as those have consented to the use of such means as the doctor mentioned to gain the position of mayor? Perhaps not; the intrigUE and wire pulling which has been so noticeable during the last few years may not have been countenanced iu previous years. Anyhow, thb doctor only got two supporters.
SOUTH WALES ENGINEERS AT BARRY. THE NEW DOCK WORKS. The great Barry Dock being now on the eve of completion, spema to posses<exceptional attractions for scientific and business men. Only about A fortnight ago a detachment of the British Association, guided by the eminent engiueer, Mr J. Wolfe Barry, made a critical survey of the masonry and appliance*. ON Wednesday the South Wales Institute of Engineers paid a. visit to the great works, and next week THE Associated Chambers of Commerce, who are to hold their annual meeting at Cardiff, will be afforded an opportunity of inspecting the vast undertaking which is just now receiving the finishing1 touches. The visit of the South WalP8 engineers being that at present under discussion, it ins to be recorded that the members of the institute, to the number of abour 250, accompanied by many ladies, proceeded to Barry on Wednes- day. Thp (Treat majority left Cardiff hy specie tram at 11 35. and after calling at S" Fagan'S for members arriving from the west, procepded to their destination, which was reached shortly before one o'clock. Luncheon was immedia t 61 Y Herved in the IMPORT warehouse, tbe wine caterer bping Mr Burkhardt, rh" popular manager of the Royai Hotel. Mr E. P. Martin, president of the S INCH Wales Institute, occupied the chair, and amongst those near him were Mr DM; ? Da,.ie8, vice-chairman of UieBarry Dock Company Mr Archibald Hood, a director Mr J. T. D. Llewelyn, Mr J. Barry, JT'„\ Luncheon over, the Chairman gave "The Health of the Barry Dock Company," in the course of which he referred to the fact that four years ago the magnificent works which the visitors were now about to inspect existed only on paper. The toast having been duly honoured, Mr David Davies, on behalf of the company, returned thanks. He said be had got a speech prepared, but after what tbe chair- man had said about keeping the speaking short, he should reserve his remarks till the opening of the dock. (Laughter.) The opening was very near, and he thought that his speech would suit the forthcoming occasion. With respect to the work which they were about to see, he would point out tha t nature herself had done a great deal. SUNE people could not understand why there was such a large premium on the Barry Dock shares, hat that was accounted for by the fact that natnre bad made them a present. He did not sup- pose that the shares would have been so high if they had bad to spend half as much again in doing tbe work. If required, they would be able to ship eight millions of tons ot coal a year. He did not expect that they would live long euough to see it some people might, but he should not. In conclusion he paid a high tribute to the staff of Mr Walker, the contractor, remarking that though an old railway man, he had never beiore seen such an excellent staff, including the engineers, as that employed upon the Barry Dock. The ladies having been toasted at the instanoe of Mr Archibald Hood, the company dispersed, intent upou inspecting the worklDŒ8. Under the guidance of Mr John Robinson, the resident engineer, and his staff, they were shown the breakwaters with an opening of 350 feet, the entrance channel 330 yarls in length, and the entrance jetties 200 feet in length. A view was also obtatned of the entrance to the basin, 80 feet wide, and provided with outlet TUNNELS for levelling down the water in the basin, whilst great intere-T appeared to TIE taken in the massive wrought iron floating gates, and the wrought iron floating caisson, which will enable any of the dock entrances to be closed at pleasure. The dock proper came in for a full share of attention, whilst the excavators at work excited considerable interest. The graving docks, timber pond, high level shipping staiths and storage sidings, as well as many other features, having been inspected, the company divided, there being alternative attractions. A number paid a visit to tbe charming sandy bay at the back of the island, aff rding a view of Treharne's Point and pier on the west, and Nell's Point on tbe east. In look- ing over the water the Flat and Staep Holms were seen in the middle of tbe channel to the S.S.E., whilst Brean Down, near Weston-super- Mare, lay to the S.E. on the opposite coast of I North Somerset. Farther continrents visited the interesting pebble beach of Portbkerry, formed of millions of rounded limestone pebbles, with a fine stretch of sand at low water. Tea was subsequently partaken of, and the company returned to Cardiff about six o'clock.

LONDON LETTER. ——————„————— [BY OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. I [SPECIALLY WIRED. I LONDON, Wednesday Night. The turn events took 011 Monday before the commission of judges is likely to have an important effect upon the progress of the action entered by Mr Parnell against the Times in the Scotch courts. Under the impressiou, entertained on both sides, that the commission of judges wuuld more or less tollow the lead of the majority of the House of Commons, Mr Parnell was eagerly pressing for- ward the Scotch trial, and the Times was reso- lutely interposing delays. Undoubtedly when Mr Parnell, acting under legal advice, made a flank movement which startled the Times by raising an action in a Scotch court of justice, he expected that he would be able to have tbe case heard and decided in Edinburgh, and decided whilst the commission was still under weigh. But the course of events on Monday bas entirely changed the aspect of things. The Times has discovered that it is a very difficult matter dealing with a commission of judges instead of an anti Gladstonian majority in the House of Commons, led by an "old friend." Mr Parnell is absolutely reassured on the points of tbe impartiality and thoroughness or the inquiry which will go forward under the direction of Sir James Hannen. He is now, accordingly, lees anxious ro press forward the Edinburgh trial, while the limes, since it must be faced, throws aside its objections, and will now bend its energies to delaying the progress of the commission. The first evidence of this new departure was given on Monday, when Mr Graham, at the urgent and anxious entreaty of Mr Soames, the Times solicitor, succeeded in obtaining the postponement by a week of the business sittings of the commission. It will now be too late for the Times altogether to undo its work in Edinburgh aud harry forward the Scotch trial, which a careful calculation of necessary processes shows cannot come on till January. The businesslike management of the judges on the commission justifies the expectation that they will have disposed of the evidence and delivered their judgment within six weeks, or at the, most, two months. The Standard to-day gives utterance to the feeling of apprehension and distrust with which Mr Chamberlain's visit to Bradford is regarded in Conservative circles. Alluding to tbe expectation, ) mentioned in this column yesterday, that Mr Chamberlain would take the opportunity of urging the necessity of remedial legislation for Ireland, the Standard warns him, if he cares to earn the gratitude of the Unionists at large, to content himself with the simple announcement that he has thought out a plan without elaborating provisions, "which neither his friends nor his antagonists can just now find time to criticise." Mr Chamberlain is not the man to be snubbed by the official organ of the party for which he has during the last two years done so much. It is probable that this insulting note of warning may have the effect of making him more outspoken in denunciation of a continuance of unmitigated Balfourism. What Mr Chamberlain has to say on current events will, as usual, be interesting. But any weight the gathering in Bradford may have bad, if the secret had been kept, is destroyed in advance by the disclosure made this morning that it has been found necessary to bribe attend- ance by the issue of free railway passes. A letter from an official of the Congo State, dated July 26th, confirms that dated two days later, but published yesterday, and gives a painful account of the relatious between Major Barttelot and his men. If these correspondents are to be trusted—and it is well to remember that they are at present anonymous—it was a matter of common talk 011 the Congo before Major Barttelot started on the expedition which ended so fatally, that he would be assassinated by his irritated followers. It will be well to await confirmation of these painful communica- tions but if they described actual facts, there is some gleam of comfort to be derived with respect to the position of Stanley. These correspondents from the Congo, writing, it must always be remembered, long in advance of Major Barttelot's death, forecast that result as attributable to the harshness with which the major ruled his men. His death would seem to be due to an act of personal revenge rather than to either treachery on the part of Tippoo Tib or a generally hostile feeling among the natives, from which, in his turn, Stanley may have suffered. This has been a beautiful summer day in Londou, and telegraphed accounts received this evening from various centres describe the fine weather as general. It may come too late to REPRESS the damage done to the crops in the South of England, but further North, where the harvest is later, the sunlight is literally a shower of gold. In North Wales it comes in good time to make the harvest at least up to the average. There is also cheering news from Ireland. Mr Bullock Hall, a great authority, writes that during the hinguificeut weather Ireland has been blessed With in the present fortnight abundant crops of Qats and hay have been well got in. A prosaic paragraph in to-day's papers ANNOUNCES that yesterday the Three Nuns Inn, Aldgate, was offered for sale, and the bids not being sufficiently high, was bought in. This old inn, situated close by St. Botolph's Church, is one of the oldest hostelries in the city. It is mentioned in De Foe's "History of the Plague." Its name is derived from the nuns of the Minorite Convent, which gives its name to the Minorias, a street "tanding almost immediately opposite. Sir Henry Tyler, member for Yarmouth, is, AMOTIG many other things, president of the Grand Trunk. He has been to Canada for some weeks making a thorough inspection of the xystem. According to bis own description, bis is a mission of peace, its object being to induce the various rival companies to abandon competition and put up the rates. Sir Henry has promised Mr Akers- DOUGLAS to be back in time for the openiug of the aUtumn session. I hear of a curious and unlocked for calamity RISING out of the wet summer. It has, I am aQred on high authority, brought about a pain. fully depressed condition in the hat trade. Silk HATS are a drug in the market, whilst straws and Ilibt goods have had no chance. Some compen- sation has been found in the demand for cloth caps for travelling, ladies coming out strong in their orders for the peaked caps, which may be seen crowding every railway station. Brown felts have also beeu brisk, but,on the whole,hatters are madder than usual. In reviewing the unsatisfac- tory season they are only partially encourxged by the conviction that in silk bats brims have now reached the minimum of narrowness, that a turn °F FASHION is inevitable, and that the app6ur- ANce of broader brims will lead to the putting aWay of old hats and the buying of new. TRUTH to-day makes a statement which, if correct, brings into strong prominence a still more important result of the wet summer. It puts forth a calculation which shows that the cost of fodder for the 9 000 horses of the General OMNIBUS Company will amount, at the present prices, to £17,000 more for the current half-year than for the corresponding half of last yeav. If this be true, it will be bad news for the share- holders, who last half-year received a reduced dividend oniy by a large encroachment on the reserve fund. The importance of the statement lies in the fact of its national application. What is bad for the General Omnibus Company is bad. for the carrying trades throughout the kingdom TRAMWAYS, cab proprietors, and carters must all suffer from the increased price of fodder following on a SUNLESS summer. Oddly enough, there is one exception to the calamitous state, more striking as it oomes in contrast with the General Omnibus COMPANY. The directors of the London Road Car COMPLY, some nine months ago, entered into a contract for hay which will carry them over the next SIX months at prices current before the failure of the bay harvest had affected tbe MARKET. This is a matter of public interest, since it will greatly strengthen the position of a company In the welfare of which millions who pass through the streets of London are concerned. It was the Road Car Company that broke up the monopoly of the General Omnibus Company, introducing penny fares with vastly improved accommodation.

CARDIFF AND SOUTH WALES HORSE SHOW. IBY OUR SIM B'AL CORRESPONDENT. I In those liveiy, and it. may be added rather loose, memoirs of Madame D'Epinay, she describes the people who were accustomed in the morning to lounge about the levee of her husband. Among the persons 80 tabulated may be Cest un maquignon qui a des ckevaux uniques A vendre. We are not aware whether the supply of first-class horseflesh is as plentiful in France as it was then, but we can safely avow that there is an astonishing dearth of equine excellence in England at the present moment. Very few dealers could boast ot possessing one unioue animal in their stables, much less a plurality. There is evidently a scarcity of the best specimens, and the Cardiff Show on Wednesday emphasised this lack. But among the exhibits were two animals which, if you were to search the wide world through, you could scarcely come across their superiors. Mr J. T. Cross's cart mare Kate and Mr J. Goodwin's chesuut mare are, like Grains of gold in tbe mine's refuse, Few and bright. The entries were, if anything, more than those of preceding years, but there was nothing like the quality. This absence of merit was not due to any parsimony, for the prizes were many and hand- some. With few exceptions, the celebrities of the hippie arena were catalogued, but they were not the memories of days. "Comparisons are odious," George Herbert tells us. But to demonstrate that no fault can be attached to the management, we may furnish figures which determine that of the hunters there are 150 exhibits in the Sophia Gardens this autumn, against 95 last year; that hacks and ponies are about equal, vie., a little over 80 exhibits, single harness horses being in about the same position or slightly in excess of 100 entries, and that the cart horses remain practically unaltered. Local talent has been encouraged, and there is a sign that in the future the show will become somewhat more utihtarian. The class for thoroughbred stallions has been knocked out, and is probably no losi. However, if the executive would insist upon the agricultural stallions travelling this district, and add some inducement in the shape of an increased award, it would be doing a noble service to the cause of breeding, and would not throw its money clean away, AS was.tbe case yestetday. The Cardiff Horse Show has ample attraction without the entires, and it would be-preferable either to give tha £35 to some of the young stock, or to add something to this amount and make an attempt to benefit the neighbourhood. We have to speak in high terms of the management. A courteous secretary, efficient stewards, and a workable stllff are what are required, and th y were there on Wednesday, and, moreover, each and all knew their business and did it. Class succeeded class with charming regularity, the telegraph boards were not left to take care of themselves, and thus a catalogue was a guide, not a puzzle to which the clue bad not been supplied, as at some of our local attempts. The hunters were not as they should be, and this deficiency was accentuated with every fresh batch. It would have been difficult out of the whole total to have pointed out one which was out of the common. There were ten competitors in the heavy weight class, and their calibre was not high. None of them had any lustre, or shone with the brilliance which you would expect such an award as J340 would induce. Yet there were horses which are by no means undistinguished. Mr E, C. Brown's Sir Garnet, Mr Thomas Crutcber's Hard to Find, and Mr Joseph Horton's Grafton have all been decorated in rings quite as exalted as that of Cardiff, but none of them possess those characteristics which are re- garded as necessary for the outline of a hunter. The standard by which we gauge this type of mount is that of Leicestershire. There is much in common between this stamp of a horse and an ocean steamer. Both must have leugth,botb must carry their passengers amidships where tbe least motion will be felt, both must be fast, both must have beam, narrow in front and broad behind, and both must cross the sea—the one possibly the blue waves of the Atlantic, the other a sea of grass, whose heaving billows are ridge and furrow. The term heaving is used advisedly. The ship steered by a bridle, unless it possesses sufficient scope, will be like a cock boat, con- tinuaily up and down, instead of striding aoross the oatenary, and cutting as it were tbe crests. Beauty of mould and correctness of symmetry should be present to complete the ideal. How- ever, there is even more than this. A Cunarder, by the aid of steam gear, can be gnided by a touch of the iiugers, and a hunter should b. turned and stopped with a similar facility. The horse which approached nearest to these attributes was Mr Keevii's Conundrum, an ammal of fashion, but the vet." exercised his veto, and there was an end to the matter. The bay gelding Grafton was fast, and could get his hind logs well under him, and,moreover,exhibited some quality. He might not have beeu up to fifteen stone, but there is no doubt that his manners were not on a par with Lord Chester- field. To this reason he is indebted for third honours, for we fancy he would have been higher had it not been for his boring. The winner, Sir Garnet, is superior behind the saddle. He carries his head badly and points his toes. On the contrary, Hard to Find, another chestnut, is better in front than it is in the rear, for the 6,nk is rather slack. It gallops high, but is fast. To it went the second prize. Seventeen came out to do battle in the twelve stone olass. The bast looking borse undoubtedly was Tommy Giles, the property of Mr G. Richardson, Leeds. The brown gelding was built in the form of a horse intended for the chase. But it had no freedom of front action, and was, as hunting men would term it, sticky." Tommy Giles has been successful over a country and in a sbowyard. In view ofitsmould, the prize could not welibehauded elsewhere, and Tommy Giles secured the coveted distinction. We do not agree with the judges when they placed Lord Tredegar's grey mare Whitebait second. Pratty enough, no doubt, but a long way off the right shape of a hunter. Mr J. H. Stoker Successor is a bandy horse, and deserved the yellow ribbon which it received. It was temperate and speedy, but nothing much more than a whip's mouut. Mr J. Goodwin had the reserve for a horse of some character, but leggy, thick in the shoulder, and its hocks were outside its body. Mr Lort Phillips sent a nice horse in Landlord, but it was not looked at. The four-year-olds were headed by Mr Crutcber's Hard to Find. The second went to a fair chestnut, but more a charger than a hunter, belonging to Mr E. C. Browne. The local hunten were not as good all their more cosmopolitan com- rades. Mr H. E. Watson's bay, Storm, seemed likely to grow into something, and he is temperate. He is straggliug now, and we question whether he S up to the weight. Colonel Morgan was the recipient of the blue ribbon. horse Rambler has seen its best day, and should have yielded to younger animals. Second was Messrs Gattwaltz and Bowring, with Bismarck. The light class was responsible for the presence of two hunters which bad some pretentions, Mr Homfray's Frigate and Lord Tredegar's Horoscope, which were second and third respectively, were built on the right lines. For almost the first time one could observe what a hunter should be like. We consider it an error to have elevated Lord Tredegar's Whitebait above these two, but such was the judges' verdiet. However, in the class for three-year-old hunters we are totally at variance with the opinion of those in authority. The Stand Stud Company's Pilgrim stood out from the rest as a king does from commoners. Not a monarch in these degenerate times, but when they were chosen by their physique. Had they dismissed Pilgrim altogether without a card of commendation, we could have understood it, for bis fetlocks and feet were decidedly against him. First or nowhere he should have been. Again, we are inclined to thmk that Mr Viltat's Early Bird was easily second to Pilgrim. Early Bird exhi. bited a considerable amount of fashion, and was merely inferior to Pilgrim in size and scope. But, however, to Mr J >hn Thomas went the first prize for a gelding a trifle plain and coarse, but with ample bone. We will admit that the more you looked at this youngster, the moreitimprEIBsed the spectator. It is a gelding which grows upon one, and to capital legs it combines a rare carcase. The six two-year old hunters had nothing much to recommend them. Mr H. S. Watson's Waverley was a. useful, short-backed colt, with plenty of timber, but no fashion. Lord Londonderry was second with Turf, a colt of immense substance and size, but somewhat carty, Mr John Goodwin's bay moved like a hunter, and looked like a hunter, and if it had been first instead of third there wonld not have been much mistake. But tbe biggest blunder the judges committed was in the yearling class. Wher we spoke of Major Heygate's chestnut yearli at Newport, we allowed that it was one of the most bsautiful yearlings we bad ever encountered. It was not seen to such advantage at Cardiff as at Newport, but what reason there could be for ignoriag it altogether is difficult to account for. After this piece of work we were not surprised to find that a small colt with carriagey quartets and crooked forelegs was invested with the premier ribbon. Why, the two which eND, after it might without impropriety have beaten it, and the reserve colt was very leggy, and his hocks were in one parish and his quarters in another. The harness horses were better than the saddle. The Stand Stud Company's King of Fashion bends bis knees very gracefully, though he is not very fast. Nevertheless, he is a horse in tba front rank. He was first for animals over 15.2. There wa a close fight for second prize. It lay between Mr John Goodwin and Messrs Gottwaltz and Bowring. The latter's Countess bad the better fore action, while the former's bay gelding could move his bmd legs. We believe, though, that Cardiff would have defeated Cheltenham if the local cbampioness would have settled down, but she was a little excited, and spoilt her chance. In Mr Robert T. S. Lucas's Denmark was witnessed both speed and action, and it was rightly ornamented witn the blue ribbon for those under 15.2. The well-known Elegance, also the property of the same OWNER, was second. A day or RO previously the positions were reversed. It is quite true that Elegance is, as her name signifies, most graceful. She may have the more flashy movements. The Prince de Ligne said of the Vienna Congresi, Le congrls danse, et ne marche pas. This will apply to Elegance. She can prance, but she cannot progress. Even with the knees knocking out the teeth does not compensate for a rate of five miles an hour. An animal which is unable to draw a vehicle faster than this is fit for nothing but a glass case. If the judges' vagaries had been apparent in this class, and they had passed over Elegance for Mr W. M. Thomas's Surprise, which had the reserve, we should have been only too glad to have thanked them for breaking through a. false tradi- tion. Elegance has for the last four years been taking prizes in harness, and beyond high stepping and shape, we will admit, has no qualifi- cations for tbe job. We contend that her slow- ness is a fatal bar. To get over the ground should .be the first consideration. That study of light and shadow, that perfection of the chiar- oscuro, the evergreen piebald Magpie, added another triumph to an existence of ovations. But Mr Pope's picture in white and black is not the Magpie of two years since. Anno Domini spares no one and nothing. The gor- geous paces, the fluency of movement, the magni- ficence of outline are gradually fading, the vivacity is departing, and the fire is burning low, but Magpie has enough left to tackle such oppouents as she encountered yesterday. Not that these rivals were inlllnificant-far from it. Mr Clifton's The Don is a trifle plain, buc-ho can throw his forelegs into space, and follow them up smartly with those in the rear. The Stand Stud Company's Shooting Star is another pouy which has struggled where the mighty in horseflesh wrestle, and has held its own. But the same remarks which we have written about Elegance appiy to Shooting Star. Here the judges, ever wayward, rightly passed over the Stand Stun Company's exhibit, and gave the reserve to Mr Henry Butler for hill grey Sir Thomas. Mrs Powson, of Crwys Bychau, deserved this for a smart pony CALLED Jim Crow. The above was for ponies under 14.2. There was a capital class of fifteen for ponies under 13 2. The ten hunter brood mares were undeniably good. Mr John Good win headed the class with a chestnut mare which has no equals. The second, belonging to Mr T. Forsyth Forrest, Cireucester, was a long way above the average, and so were one or two more. The cob stallions were fair. Mr J. A. N. Booker's roan was an excellent mover, but rather light in the middle. Mrs James Brogden'a Furioso bad nice paces, but was not typical, and light in the quarters. In those exceeding 15 hands, the downfall of the celebrated Lord Bang, which is owned by Mr L. Shirley, was unexpected, as Lord Bang is quite at the top of the tree. The agricultural, upon the whole, were poor. The stallions were not a brilliant lot. Lord Egerton's Corunet, which was third, is splendidly bred, and is own brother to the glorious Czarina -a mara with few equals, and scarcely any superiors. However, age and size had to yield to youth, and Mr John Powell's Briton Yet was first, a two-year-old colt with plenty of feather and bone. Lord Tredegar's Pope was second. But when wecometothemares, adifferenttale must B* told. Take,for instance, Mr J. P. Cross's Kate. Such substance, such a carcase, such leg, such sloping pasterns, and hard feet, such quarters, fit to pull a town down, such hair, ana, with all this massiveness, the paces of a pony, there is room for admiration. With the exception of Chance and Lady Lincoln, there are, we question, none to beat her, and she is beaten by those mares in outline alone. They have a gayer and more fashionable exterior. The Marquis of London- derry sent his Clydesdales, for which he is renowned, but neither Star nor Jeannie Darnley, gorgeous as they are, could lower the colours of the shire.. Mr Joseph Hill's pair of shi-ies, Gil- bert and Smiler, were a noble couple, of animals, and were good enough to beat the Clydesdales of Lord Cawdor, though the eminent Snowdrop, which wou at Newport, was a rival. The local men here had an opportunity of reckoning up the proper value ot their stock, Two- yaar-olds were a poor lot. The only two worth anything would not satisfy the vet. The yearlings were but little in advance. The second was a colt with plenty of bone, but no breadth of shoulder, yet with depth, but the pasterns were SO straight behind that it seemed to be deformed. The jumping was commenced about 4 p.m., and by this time the ring was lined by a deep shadow. "To witch the:, world with noble horsemanship is not the saion of the rider of Mr C. E. Price's Secret. Every fence the horse jumped off came the jockey, and there was certainly no luck when he tumbled off clear of the water jump. A thorough good soaking would have delighted the people. As it was. one of the stewards, with a blandishment that was sublime, tried to allure him to enter the arena a second time, encouraging him with the seduction that the prize was likely to fall to him. But the aspirant did not want to expose any more secrets, and wisely declined. The events call for no detailed notice. Judging commenced promptly at 10 o'clock, and thenceforth thA stream of visitors to the show ground was tolerably constant until about four p.m. Still the numbers on the ground did not come quite up to expectations, but we are unable to give the exact figures as the registration of the turnstiles had not been computei at the close of the show. Many of the leading gentry of the locality put in an appearance, and the summer costumes of the ladies gave an air of brilliance and harmony to the scene, which, under less favourable climatic conditions, would have been sadly wanting. For the comfort of the thousands of people who occupy the grand stand and cluster around the prize-ring, the committee should seriously consider the advisability of adopting a better system of numbering the exhibits. As the ticket is generally somewhat small, and slung about the horse's neck, it is often impossible to decipher it. Otherwise the arrangements are most satisfactory, and the show ground itself is not to be surpassed in the kingdom for conveni- ence of access, general detail, and quality of soil. The stewards were as follow" hacks, and harness horses—M^S^RS O. H *Villiamis, R. T. Bassett, G. 0. Williams, Henry Lewis, and Lewis J. Shirley. Cart horses and ponies—Messrs J. A.

CaM horses and poriies-imeimrs T. A. Spencer, Clavering Hall, Essex; and R. Pell, Chester. Messrs Bourne Brothers, of Dudley, are the contractors for refreshments, and they have provided excellent accommodation for all possible demands. The sheds and others fittings have been supplied by Mr Randall, contractor, of Taunton, these being of the moat suitable deicriDtion. THE PRIZE LIST. HUNTERS OPEN.

THE EXHIBITS. The exhibitors' stands are placed as usual near the entrance gates to the showyard, and if not numerous, are at least attractive. Prominent among the several shows of carriage builders is that of Mr John Norman, of the Canton Carriage Works, who exhibits upwards of 40 vehicles, varying in description from the opulent-looking brougham to the lowly delivery cart. Among the specialities will be noticed a very handsome rustic cart. This is hung on Cee springs, and fitted with Warner wheels, the drawbar having direct action on the axle. The body is in walnut, and the interior luxuriously aud tastefully uphol- stered. A smart-looking Malvern cart, mounted high, and with shafts adjustable to suit horses of different heights, is also worthy of mention, as are Rome very neat and serviceable looking Bafctlesden and Alexandra carts. A "safety cart especially adapted for children, or aged aud infirm folk, constitutes yet another speciality, while the more useful class of vehicles, among which are included trolleys, brewers' and butchers' carts, milk delivery carts, bakers' vans, and so on, are all constructed on the most approved designs. Mr Norman has exhibited yearly at this show since its inauguration, but nsvei before has he placed on the ground so varied and attractive a display. Hotel keepers and publicans visiting the show will act advisedly in examining the stand of Mr W. 1. Vaughan, of Great Frederick-street, Cardiff, who exhibits well-nigh every requisite for a well-appointed bar. His patent acme cork drawer and acme filter should find a place on every bar. One great advantage possessed by this latter filter is that it can be attached to the water pipes of a house, and the water be drawn, freed from all impurities, as fast as it would run through an ordiuary tap. A remarkaoly handsome and ingenious muller aptly named "The King of Bar Stoves" will doubt- less command an extensive sale, supplying, as it does, an unlimited How of hot water, while at the same time it mulls beer or porter, and heats the succulent and toothsome sausage dear to the hearts of those who like to take their luncheon standing at a counter. Mr Vaughan also exhibits beer and spirit drawing apparatus, and spring taps of the best designs, together with an attractive display of spirit barrels and other requisites of the botal and innkeeper. The marquees, tents, and canvas in connection with the horse show were supplied by Messrs Morgan and Coles.
DEAN FOREST COAL TRADE. ADVANCE IN PRICES AND WAGES. For soma weeks past the hope has been indulged by the 5,000 persons engaged in the Forest of Dean mining industries that there would soon be a substantial increase in their wages. The rates have of late been very low, so low that a first-class hard working man under the butty men could only get 3S 6 I a day. Up till within the past month trade, too, has been slack, and nothing like full time could be made. Prospects were so forbidding that recently there was a considerable exodus of the young men to other colliery districts; while a number of men have emigrated to the United States and the colonies. Latterly, the miners, however, have been anticipating a general advance of 10 per cent., and were encouraged in this when coal merchants in Newport and other centres in South Wales put up pricef, Is per ton. The Forest associated masters held a meeting on Saturday at the Wellington Hotel, Gloucester, when the situation was fully dis- cussed. As a result of their deliberations, it is understood that prices will be advanced to-day (Toursday) IS per ton on the better classes ot coal. Quotations at the pit will now be—Best block, 9-1 to 10S at the pit, and Is per ton added if delivered OY rail or f.o.b. at Lydney Dock. The colliers from next Monday will reap a five per cent. increase in wages by the operation of the slid- ing scale. There is a diversity of opinion as to how the situation will develop. Experience has shown that very frequently a lot of trade has been lost immediately the winter rise takes place. 10 the present case, however, it is felt that as Welsh coals have advanced, with a tendency to go still higher, it is safe to take the present step. Welsh coal masters are the great competitors with those of Dean Forest for South of England trade, and when the prices are equal the former has an ad- vantage in quality.
MONMOUTHSHIRE AND SOUTH WALKS COLLIERS' FEDERATION. THE EBBW VALE STRIKE. The council of the Monmouthshire and South Wales Miners' Federation held a meet- ing at the Bate Arms, Aberdare, on Wednesday, under the presidency of Mr W. Howells, Rhon- dda. Sympathy was expressed with the men on strike at HBBW Vale, and it was arranged that Mr W. Abraham, M.P., and Mr David Williams (Dawi Haelwen), should go to Ebbw Vale as a deputation to see if AN amicable settlement could be arrived at in the matter. A resolution was adopted recommending the cause of the Ebbw Vale men to the miners of South Wales, and urging the latter to do their utmost on behalf of those suffering by TH8 strike. Approval was expressed of the resolution carried at the recent conference at Aberdare with reference to a general holiday once in each calendar month. It was recommended that the first general holiday be taken on the first Monday in November. The council urged upon all collieries who have not already joined districts to do so at once.
MONMOUTHSHIRE CHAMBER OF AGRICULTURE. At a meeting of the council of the above chamber, at Newport, Mr C. Chandler in the chair, a resolution was adopted to hold the meetings of the chamber at the other towns of Monmouthshire, instead of always at Newport, with the idea of inducing greater interest in the business transacted. Five new members were nominated a subscription of two guineas was given towards the comit of enter- taining members of the Associated Chamber of Commerce at Newport, and arrangements were made for an early general meeting of members to discuss the County Government Act and the Railway Rates Act.
A TIN-PLATE MANUFACTORY IN THE MARKET. Mr R. E. Hughes, auctioneer, Swansea, on Wednesday offered for sale, at the King's Head I Hotel, Newport, the property known as the Machen Tin-plate Works, situated at Machen, belonging to the Messrs Woodruffe. Mr P. T. Wondrutle started the bidding at 22,500, and £4.300 was reached by an effort, at which price the auctioneer withdrew the lot, intimating that within the past few months an offer of £6,000 had been declined. The vendor's solicitor, at the outset of the biddings, stated, in reply to a gentleman present, that there was a first mortgage on the property of 23,700.

FRACAS AT A CARDIFF CLUB SINGULAR MAGISTERIAL PRO. CEEDINGS. THE POLICE AND PRIVATE PREMISES. On Wednesday a charge of considerable gravit) was made at the Cardiff police-court—before L. Goodrich and Dr Paine against the mau»fl0t of a club. The prosecutor was Inepactol Cox, of the Roath police-station, who summoned William Sutton for assaulting him on tb4 8th inst., and for obstructing him in the discbMl?* of his duty. Mr G, David appeared for tbe prosecution, and Mr J. H. Jones for the Mr George David said that the assault aro* in this way: — A warrant had been issued against a man named Bickle, who at one time resided in Clifton-street, within tb< i Roath district, for an assault upon his wiffc I That warrant was placed in the bands of the police for execution. On the Sunday information was I brought by Mrs Bickle to Inspector Cor that Bickle was in the house of defendant SuttoO, | who was the manager of a club in Railway* street, called the New Tredegar Club." Cox went down to the premises with the view of arresting Bickle. After he had J got into the house he found there i a largj number of men drinking. SuttoO 1 immediately adopted a threatening and violent ? attitude to Inspector Cox, offered to strike with a mallet, and flourished it about his head. Cox was a man who was not going to be disturbed by that attitude, and he simply waited. Ultimately he was seized by Sutton by the coat, and the men in the premises assisting the defendant, tbt inspector was ejected from the club. Before he had been turned out, however, the door was shut upon his hand, which was severely crushed. There were two charges of assault and destruction, and these facts, if proved, would, Mr David argued, be sufficient for a conviction. Inspector Cox was called, and corroborated tbe sbtement of Mr David. Examined by Mr J. H. Jones: Have you ever acted on a warrant without having it in your possession before ?—It's done daily in this and other towus. Is it practised in Cardiff? Have you ever dons it ?—I believe I have. I can't tell. You have not done it often, then f-No. Do you know whether it is practised generally! —When we know there's a warrant out, we apprehend the man whether it is in our possession or not. You have had something to do with Mr Sutton before? You have executed warrants upon his premises before ?—I have. Did you take the warrants with you then ?—I did. P.O. Tomlinson stated that he entered the premises with Inspector Cox. He corroborated the former witness in every detail. He saw the defendant raise the mallet, and said, Don't do that, Mr Sutton." Cross-examined by Mr J. H. Jones: When they came out of the club the inspector sent for the warrant. Did the warrant come?—Yes. What; are you quite sure?—Perfectly. Mr J. H. Jones (to the bench): Why, the warrant was in Bristol at the ttme, if Head. constable Hemingway tells the trnth. The Deputy-Stipendiary (to the witness): Did you ever see the warrant?—No, I did not. I knew the inspector sent the constable for it. The Deputy-Stipendiary; I think the constable is really telling the truth. He means that he heard the order for the warrant given. P.C. Carter, who visited the club with the other two witnesses, gave the same story of the assault. Mr J. H.Jones: Were you not speaking to P.C. Lewis in the court?—Yes; I was. What did you say ?—I said that your clerk had been outside the court speaking to tbe witnesses. (Laughter.) Mr J. H. Jones said that be wished to pnt the whole question upon an issue of law. He con- tended that the police entered these premises illegally, that not having a warrant they were not in the execution of their duty, and they were liable to be ejected. There were several cases on the point which he thought would prove beyond doubt that Inspector Cox, not having in his possession at the time a warrant, was in the position of a trespasser 4b initio. It watf not a matter of great importance whether the middle door was opened by Cox or not but ba could briug evidence to show that the inspector's evidence upon the point was untrue. He went to the club without being invited by a single individual, and when be was there he was requested from time to time to leave. fiven though he had been invited, from the very moment he was asked to leave, he was in the Sosition of a trespasser unless he left. (Mr ones here quoted authorities.) With regard to the fact that the officer entered any ether person's house than the person whom he was directed to apprehend by his warrant, btf laid it down as being elementary law that be bad no right to enter anyone's house. Was the liberty of a citizen to be infringed by any constable who presented himself and stated that he had a warraut at the office? Surely no one was IUp. posed to take the ipse dixit of a police-constable f There ww still some uutii in the old phrase of thfi'~ Englishman's house being bis castle. Mr D.ivid: There is some information most material upon this. Mr Jones: What is the evidence ? Mr David That the property is Bickle's, and that Bickle is a member of the clnb. Mr Jones: I will admit it. In reply to that, I say that because a man is a land- lord of premises the idea that he has any more right upon those premises than an ordinary individual while they are occupied by a tenant is absurd. Evan Evans, who was called for the defence, said be was doorkeeper of the club. He saw Cox come in, and heard him say that he wanted to see through the premises. The defendant asked him if he had a warrant, but was told that he had no got it with him. The defendant told him ha could not go in Then the inner door was opened by a member, and Cox forced his way In. It wat then that Cox said he had nothing to do against the club, but that he wanted Bickle. Nothing had been said about Bickle in the lobby. Mr Sutton requested tht inspector to leave more than once, but th< latter only smiled, and walked further into th. room. He had a look of defiance, as though to say be was master of the position." The defendant took a mallet in his hand, but put it down again. There was certainly no barm mn-tnt to the police. H: did not know whether B: :>C;e was there. He had been there, and he had not seen him go out. The Stipendiary, while not wishing to put any impediment in the way of evidence that would be material, did not think that other witnesses were necessary. Mr David and Mr Jones having addressed ths court, The Deputy-Stipendiary sa.id he was of opinion that he must dismiss both summonses, and he had to do so with regret. He was bound to add that the defendant would have acted like a good citizen if he had given the constable information and refrained from saying anything objectionable. He was of opinion that the inspector, not having a warrant, was not acting in the exercise of his duty, and that he was, therefore, a trespasser, and could be legally turned out of the bouse. The defendant got off, however, mereiy by a technical difficulty. This concluded the case.
THE DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT CARDIFF. REALISTIC PICTURE AT THE ART EXHIBITION. A realistic picture of the fire of Monday night last has just been placed in the Art Society's Exhibition at Cardiff. The fire was "ketched from Windsor terrace by Mr Parker Hagarty, R.C.A., of the Liverpool Academy, who is the guest of Mr Edwin Seward in connection with the arraugement of the exhibition. Mr Hagarty has now produced a most effective picture, showing the blaze of fire and its vast column of smoke across the wet mud of the gut-way, tbe whole idea of the catastrophe as seen trom Cardiff Docks being admirably realised. The picture will only be on view at the exhibition for a few days.
FATAL FALLAT CARDIFF. John Stephens, a man about 40 years of asre, who lived at Whitchurch, died on Wednesday morning, at the infirmary at Cardiff, from injuries received on Saturday week. It appears that he was employed at the Taff Vale yard, Cathays, and on the day in qunwtioa was engaged in stack- ing some hay, when the ladder, upon which he was standing broke and precipitated him to the ground. He sustained a serious dislocation of the aakle and other injuries.
ALLEGED EMBEZZLEMENT BY A CAKDIFFIAN. Daniel Rowlands, traveller, of Cardie WM charged on Wednesday at Merthyr police-ctiurt- before Mr North and MrSuiyth—with embezzling JB1 belonging to W. E. Williams & Co., wine, and spirit merchants, Merthyr, his employers. Mr Chas.
