HEARTLESS CONDUCT Op A MAN- A young man named William Edward Breakwell, said to be employed as a traveller by the Albion Lamp Company, Aston, and whose parents reside in Birmingham, is in custody at Newcastle-on-Tyne on a charge of bigamy. It is stated that in 1882 the accused was engaged to his cousin Miss Louisa Breakwell, the youngest daughter of Mr. Janns Breakwell, of Balsall Heath, but the engagement was subsequently broken off. A couple of years later he made the acquaintance of a Miss Minto, the daughter of a master mariner, at Newcastle-on-Tyne, and married her at the registry office in Newcastle. The marriage was kept a profound secret from the bridegroom's family in Birmingham, and the newly. married couple lived together in Newcastle and Preston. About two yea s ago Breakwell returned to Birmingham without liis ar.d renewed his engagement with his cousin, the engagement cul- minating in a marriage, which took place at St. Paul's, Balsail Heath, in January last year. A short while ago the parents of the accused's first wife heard of the bigamous marriage, and a warrant as issued and was executed at Lancaster, whither Breakwell had gone on business. He is now under remand at Newcastle.

Williams, who followed Moses, put m a Couple of useful leg-hits, but after making six bowled by a good ball from Webley. Con. Saxon followed, but was stumped for a single. With Arthur Saxon in, matters began to IOOK lively both he and Cronin hitting merrily. After a useful 14, however, Saxon was stuped in lumping out tea slow ball from Webley. James succeeded him, and by careful batting Pot together 11, the while Cronin was hitting the bowling all over the field. When the score Reached 101 (for four wickets) the Pontypool c&ptain declared the innings at an end, Cronin then being credited with 63 (not out) and James 11 (not out).

PONTYPOOL CHAMBER OF TRADE. The ordinary monthly meeting of this Chamber was held at the Local Board Offices, Club Chambers, on Wednesday evening. There were present:—Messrs J. Moseley (president), J. Walker, E. S. Probyn, W. S. Fletcher, J. Prosser, I. Jones, W. Jones, A. J. Stock, J. C. Forrest, J. G. Nicholls, James Williams, S. Hissett, Thomas Jones, M. Harris, D. W. Simpson, J. Bishop, G. A. Be van, P. B. Ford, J. Pritchard, W. Thomas, E. Osborne, J. H. Baker, and D. Reid. In the absence of the secretary (Mr W. G. Farr) through an important engagement, the secretaryship pro tem. was undertaken by Mr W. S. Fletcher. The minutes of the last meeting having been read and confirmed, the Secretary proposed the election to the Chamber of the fol- lowing NEW MEMBERS. The Secretary proposed 24 new merabers. in- cluding the following :-Captain D. E. Williams, Messrs T. Jones (Cwmyniscoy), J. Eckersley, J. C. Forrest, J. Jenkins, H. Knipe, R. Mellor, R. Morgan (Tranch), J. W. Morgan, J. C. Eley, G. C. Hall, B. Nicholas, J. Williams (Trosnant Wharf), H. Woodley, H. Dodwell, J. Gage, H. Croom, T. Watkins. It was reported that the membership bad now reached 113. The President said they had a good list to add to their members at the last meeting, and they had a good list again. It was a matter of con- gratulation that their membership was now so strong, and included nearly all the tradesman in the town and neighbourhood. (Hear, hear.) VOTES OF CONDOLEICCE. The President moved that the Chamber ex- press their sympathy with Mr Henry Knipe and Mr Frank James, in the sad bereavement they had sustained through the loss of their respec- tive wives. Mr Probyn seconded, and the proposition was unanimously cairitd. FEDERATED CHAMBERS OF TRADE. The President, referring to the visit of the Chamber's delegates to Bany on the occation of the half-yearly meeting of the Federated Cham- bers of Trade, said he had hoped that their worthy secretary, Mr Farr, who accompanied as delegate, would have written a report, bat no doub; this had not been done in consequence of Mr Farr having been suddenly called away. He (the president) had therefore written a hurried report, which be would read. The report re- ferred to the cordiality with which the delegates fe were received and the hospitality shewn them. Improved railway communication between the Hills" and the seaside, and the question of cheaper fares, received the consideration of the meeting, and whilst on the topic, he (the presi- dent) thought it a good opportunity to reter te the need 01 improved communication between the Eastern and Western Valleys. (Hear, hear.) Unfortunately he was ruled out of order. (Lawghter.) The matter of main line accom- modation between London and South Wales was also considered, as also was the question of rail- way rates, but the Conference left it would be inopportune to move in the matter of railway rates, as the Royal Commission was still sitting. (Applause.) THE WEST MONMOUTH SCHOOL. The Secretary stated that as requested at the last meeting he bad communicated with the Charity Commissioners as to the desirability of action being taken as speedily as possible in the matter, and the erection of the West Monmouth School, and had received the following reply Charity Comxnision IT .7*- ^>th May, 1893. Jon-en jimndatum.— Wext Mvmumthghire School. Sir,—In reply to your letter of the 12th inst.. I am directed to inform you that the purchase of a site upon which to erect this school was provision- ally sanctioned by the Commissioners so long ago as July last. A difficulty has, however arisen as to the sufficiency of the title to the site, and until that question is settled, and a site actually acquired, it is impossible to state even approximately when building operations will be commenced. I may add that the Commissioners are in com- munication with the Estates Governors on the sub- ject, and are alive to the desirabilty of obtaining a settlement of the matter as early as practicable. I am, sir. Your obedient servant. G. II. GAUNTLETT. The President thought the letter was very courteous, although it was somewhat unsatis- factory, as it did not give them any definite information as to when the building would be likely to be commenced. Mr I. Jones asked whether they could not take a building in the town. The President was afraid, from what he had heard, that there was a question of title. Mr Probyn suggested it would be a good plan to bring pressure to bear upon the educational committees of the County Council, with a view to making a move. (Hear, bear.) He had heard that Newport was moving in the matter with a view to getting the school there, and he did not know that it was altogether improbable the school would go there. Mr 1. Jones moved that the Secretary write to the Oi.arity Commissioners, and ask them if it would not be feasible to take temporary premises for the school. Captain Bevan seconded. After discussion, the proposition was unani- mously agreed to. THE OSBORNE-ROAD DYKE. The Secretary read the following letters Local Board Offices Abersychan, near Pontypool c. T n A. ,May 26th, 1893. Dfiar Sir, 1 am directed by this Board to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 10th inst., relating to a nuisance in the dyke near to Mrs Havard's houses, Osborne-road, and to state that the matter shall receive their attention. Yours obediently, E. COOKE. Pontypool T A i 4- 1 2nd June, 1893. Dear Sir—In reply to your letter 0f the 10th of last month, with reference to the dyke or water- course at the back of Pembroke-terrace I have to state that the matter was brought to the notice of ixiv Board at their last ordinary meeting when the inspector of nuisances had instructions to call upon all patties to abate any nuisances that he may find upon their properties respectively in that locality. I may add for the information of vour Chamber of Trade that no sewage matter enters that water- course within this district, and that our inspector has been in communication with the inspector of the Abersychan Local Board with the view of pre- venting any such matter entering it within their district. I a n, dear sir, Your obedient servant, E. JOKES, Clerk. Mr I. Jones asked w! eher the nuisance had been abated. The President could not answer that question for certain, but be believed not. 3lr Simpson said the matter was gone into at the last meeting of Pontypool Locai Board, and Mr. W. H Davies promised, on behalf of the Tinplate Company, to do what they could to clear the dyke. Captain Bevan said there was no sewage matter going into the dyka from the Pontypool district. Stagnant water and dead clogs there were—(laughter)—but sewage matter did come from the Abersychan district. p0utypool had done their best in the matter, by constructing a sewer at a large cost. Mr Probyn moved that the secretary again write tho Abersychan Local Board urging their attention to the matter. Mr Pritcharfl seconded. Mr Simpson said that Mr W. H. Davies had told them that ashes and refuse were thrown into the dyke, and they found it impossible to keep the watercourse clear. Captain Bevan corroborated this statement, adding that only haif-an-hour previously he saw a person throwing ashes into the dyke The proposition was then submitted and carried unanimously. SUGGESTED ALTERATION OF DAY OF MEETING. Mr I Jones, in accordance with notice, moved that the Chamber in future meet on the first Wednesday in the month. He understood it would be more convenient to certain members to meet on the first Wednesday, instead of on the second, as at present. The hour of meeting he thought might remain as at present Mr Stock seconded. The President pointed out that the proposi- tion wotild mean rescinding a rule on the subject. The proposition was carried. JNTEKMEDIArl E SCHOOL FOR GlRkS- In accordance with notice, Mr Probyn moved the secretary write the Committee of the Girls' Intermediate School, and offer the co-operation of the Chamber. Capt Bevan asked in what way did the Cham- ber propose to co-operate with the committee. Mr. Probyn: Pecuniarily. Capt. Bevan said lie understood the Educa- cation Committee of the County Council had visited the Baptist College and reported favour- abjy upon that buij'.jing as a site for the Girls' -School. He would second Mr Probyn's res lu- tion, but would suggest that they add to the resolution something to the c-iioct that they should ask the committee for information in the matter. Mr Probyn accepted the addition to the pro- position. which was then submitted and carried unanimously. RAILWAY RATKS. Mr Probyn, Oil b-efaalf of the committee ap- pointed in the matter of raiJ way rates, reported that he had made inquiries with regard to rail- way rAteAa, and found that in the majority of in- stance the tradesmen had littJ, to complain of He understood, however, that the butchers felt they had a grievance in the matter, and perhaps the Chamber would consider it advisable to move further. Captain Bevan certainly thought they should take the matter up, even though it only affected one section of trade. Mr I. Jones, as one of the committee, said they had found a difficulty in obtaining docu- ments from traders upon which they might work, and that being so he did not see what more they eould do iu the matter. The snbject then ended. MARRIAGE OF THE D'UKE OF YORK. Mr Probyn said it had been suggested to him that the Chamber should give an expression of opinion that the tradesmen of Pontypool should close their places of business on the occasion of the marriage of the Duke of York. (Hear, hear.) Mr Walker observed that he believed the Queen had made an order in council proclaiming the day a Bank Holiday. The President: Yes, that is so, but perhaps it would be as well if this chamber gave an expres- sion of opinion. (Hear, hear.) Mr Probyn proposed that the Chamber make a representation to the tradesmen that it would be advisable to close their places of business on J ulv 6th. Mr Simpson seconded, and Captain Bevan sup- ported the proposition, which was unanimously carried amidst applause, and Messrs Probyn, Simpson, and Bevan were appointed a deputa- tion to wait upon tradesmen. Mr Probyn further suggested that the Chamber should ask Mr Hanbury to throw open the Park that day to the public. After disoussion, it was decided to ask Mr Hanbury to throw open the Park, and also con- vene a special meeting of the Chamber, in the event of receiving a favourable reply, to make further arrangements. IMPROVED TRAIN FACILITIES TO THE WESTERN VALLEYS. The Secretary read the following letter from the Abertillery Chamber of Trade Abertillery, May 16,1893. Dear Sir -Adverting to your letter dated 6th inst., and also to Mr L. E. Webb's, dated 7th March, 1893,1 am directed to say that my Chamber will be glad to tender you any assistance in their power to remedy the defects in train service complained of by you. I am, dear sir, Yours faithfully, CHAS. W. CARPENTER. The following letter from the Abercarn Chamber was also read Abercarn, May 17,1893. Dear Sir,— Re Early Trains. Your letter was read at our meeting last evening. My Chamber could not see their way clear to sup- port, fearing that if the early train down was put on we should be deprived of the 9.12 to Swansea, which runs in communication with our 8.20 up. and, further, they were of opinion that from past experience with the railway company that your petition would not be granted, as the passengers to Tredegar Junction are few, but if you should be able to show sufficient passenger traffic my Chamber will be glad to support you. Yours truly. TOM HOWE, Hon. Sec. This discussion upon this matter was deferred. APPOINTMENT OF MAGISTRATES. Mr D. Reid (who came in late) enquired whether any reply had been received from the Lord Lieutenant to the Chamber's communica- tion. Captain Bevan: What is that about ? Appoint- ment of magistrates ? Mr Reid: Yes. The President No reply has been received. Captain Bevan Well, I think that matter might very well be left to the Houses of Parlia- ment and the Lord Lieutenant. It becomes a question of what is our status. They don't care a snap for our opinion. Mr Reid That's not very complimentary to the Chamber. Captain Bevan I'm one of the Chamber my- self. As I said before, it is a question of our status. What was the Chamber before it was resuscitated by Mr Farr ? It was a nonentity. I think there is all honour due to him for the way in which he has worked in the matter. (Hear, hear.) I say again that they don't care a jot for our opinion on the question raised by Mr Keid. The President suggested the discussion on the matter should be deferred, and this having been assented to, the meeting adjourned.
LAUGHING IN CHURCH. Fonr young men were charged at Cranbrook, "I few days since, with misbehaviour in Sandhurst Parish Church during Divine service. It appeared that the defendants were sitting teliind a man who was asleep and snoring so loudly that a church official had to wake him up. The sleeper on being aroused was so startled that the defendants, as they said could not help laughing. The sexton and parish clerk, who was called as a witness, had to admit that he could not help smiling, and others were guilty of laughing. Defendants were fined 12s. each. inclusive of costs.
FRIGHTENED REBELS FLEE. News has reached Madrid of extraordinary inci. dents which have occurred near Prienta la Reine, in Navarra. One Sergt. Lopez, in command of a Eort at Sant Isabel, aided by two sol diers of the garrison and two civilians, declared in favour of a revolution, and then proceeded to disarm the re- mainder of the garrison. Having accomplished, this, the party left the fort cheering. Troops from Estella and Pamplona have been sent in pursuit. The outbreak appears to be regarded with indiffer- ence by the population in the district. A later telegram states that the troops are actively in pnrsuit of the rebels, and steps have been taken to prevent others from joining the band. It is ex. pected that the fugitives will ere long be cap. tured.
FATALITY IN THE CRICKET FIELD. A. sad fatality occurred in a cricket match between Hythe and Willesborough, played at the latter placb, a suburb of Ashford, on Saturday afternoon. Thb visitors were batting, and one of the batsmen, Mr. Jal, eon of a well-known builder and contractor, of SeaWock, was struck on the back of his head with considerable force by a short- pitched ball delivered by Mr. Dawson, of the London and County Bank Ashford. Mr. Jeal was rendered insensible for a time, but on being taken to the pavilion he apparently recovered, and was able to go on with the game till the close. Afterwards, while at tea, he was seized with vomiting, and bad to be taken to the Ashford Cottage Hospital, where he died in the course of a few hours. Mr. Jeal, who was in the prime of life, leaves a widow and two young children.
SALVATION ARMY TROUBLES. There has been a recrudescence of the trouble in the Salvation Army in the Dominion. Staff Commander Bolton announces that he has left the Army beause he does not believe 11 Commander" Herbert Booth is a Christian. He states that Mr. Booth divided the Army into departments in each of the provinces. He and other officers who left the Army say that English Salvation Army men were brought out and appointed secretaries over the heads of the Canadians. The secretaries have practically unlimited power, and as they are res- ponsible only to Mr. Booth they increase his auth- ority to a very undesirable extent. The Canadian followers do the field-work, while Englishmen secure the staff positions. "Captain" Sou thai 1, the editor of the Canadian War Cry, has als6 tendered his resignation.
WRECKED BY LIGHTNING. A terrific thunderstorm occurred a few days ago at Keighley. An isolated farmhouse on the high. way between Keighley and Ilkley was struck with lightning and completely wrecked. The cMmney was out away, and then one gabie a yard thick was forced away, and stones weighing 1 cwt were sent in all directions over a distance of 20 yards. The house was set on fire, and furniture and clothing were all destroyed. The occupants—mother and daughter—were seriously injured, the latter having stones forced into her leg, and the family-five in number were rendered homeless, and their belong- ings have perished. The Leeds Infirmary surgeon, sheltering from rain near, did good service for the sufferers. The Rev. David Cowling, the parish clergyman, and his wife had only just left the hous^rwhen the bolt fell. Tbe sound was as of a great explosion, and an eye-witness describes the result as heartrending.
ANOTHER MEMORIAL FOR SPURGEON. The committee, after having divided 95,413 amongst the various institutions founded by the late pastor, have still the sum of £ 4,234 16s ld. in hand. The memorial at Norwood Cemetery, his resting place, has been finally completed. After consideration the committee have decided to erect a memorial hall at the Stockwell Orphanage, to give additional accommodation to the Orphans, and to provide for public nieet!js connected with the institution. The design is by Mr. James Cubitt, and the work is entrupred to Mr. George Ti nwork, at a cost of £ 4,000. Within the hall a monumental design will be erected containing three panels, in the centre a lite-size figure of Mr. Spurgeon, who is represented preach in?. the right-hand panel he is depicted as the vasior in the midst of a gronp of students, and in the left-hand panel as the president surrounded by a g-ronp of Orphans. The i foundation-stone is proposed to be laid on Wednesday, 21 June, the next orphanage festival.
At Tredegar on Tuesday, Walter James was remanded to Usk for a week on a charge of bigamouely marrying Elizabeth Griffiths on the 20th of July, 1889.
ODDS AND ENDS. The latest abbreviation of Pontypool is "Pt. Pool." A letter so addressed found its way to the proper owner the other day. Overheard at the Lawn Tennis Ground:— "Why isn't Ford playing?" He can't af-Ford to. He ap-Peeled just now, but failed to Currie favour." The members of the Joker's Club are anxious to know when the cloth boot is to be returned. They are afraid the gouty toe is still troubling its unfortunate owner. Overheard in Crane-street on Sunday :—"What did our pulpit look like to-night ?" "A pulpit, of course." No a cross between a rostrum and a bill-sticker's hoarding." Saturday's police-court was chiefly remarkable for the large number of absentee defendants. Various excuses were tendered, but they were for the most part unavailing. Walter Williams, Blaenavon, got drunk, and also got drunk as a preliminary to answering the charge at the Police Court. The double "do" cost him the double fee of £1. Mr Rafarel is of opinion that the finance com- mittees of the Llantarnam and Llanfrechfa Upper Boards are very weak—not as to numbers, I presume, but in point of work. After an absence, through illness, of many weeks, Colonel Byrde turned in at the police- court for a short time on Saturday, and was warmly felicitated by his colleagues upon his recovery. From a statement made by Supt. James at the police-court last Saturday, it appears that it is the practice of small farmers to leave their horses and carts standing in the streets on market days, in order to save the cost of stable room. Most people seem to think that the proper place to keep fish in is water, but evidently that is not the opinion of a gent, up the valley, who sometimes informs his customers that certain kinds of fisti, together with potatoes, cabbage, etc., are fresh from his own garden. There was a lot of healthy discussion, affecting local trade and sanitation at the Chamber of Trade meetiag on Wednesday. Everything passed off with unanimity excepting one topic, which was discussed at the very end, and this raised just a leetle disseasion. The Griffithstown constable got a bit mixed on Saturday. He said, "I saw the two defen- dants, in company with P.C. Bladon, playing pitch and toss with coppers and when they saw me they ran away." Needless to say, P.C. Bladon was not playing he was at work just then. An old gentleman living at the Upper Race happened the other day upon what he thought was a swarm of bees, and made preparations for hiving them but after sending to the Cwm for a box for the purpose, he was considerably chag- rined to find the "bees" tranformed into wasps. An express brake was driven to Newbridge on Monday last with a party of Good Templars from the upper region. Let us hope that none of the citizens took cold from the quickness of their journey. If the weather had been frosty, the passengers would have returned perished." Attendance Officer Kelly told the magistrates on Saturday that a defendant threatened to break his neck. This would be a much too serious mode of revenge, but it was remarked by one or two persons that it would have been a blessing if the eld lady took off a piece of his jaw. As toe .New Recreation Grounds are to be I opened on July 3rd, with probably a great deal of ceremony and attraction, might"! suggest that Pontypool tradesmen should close their estab- lishments at one o'clock and so give their assistants an opportunity of witnessing the sports ? A witness at Blaina police-court, in reply to a question as to whether she saw a constable in a certain house, replied, "Not till he came in." Another witness in the same ease said he was a stranger to Abertillery, and followed this up by stating he had been there for three years off and on." The Pontypool Crieket Club were indignant because their match on Saturday was interfered with by the advent to the ground of a half battalion of Volunteers. I understand, however, that the circumstance was quite unavoidable, and the cricketers will no doubt be glad to hear that it vill not occur again. Three loyal Buffs had a little outing to a neighbouring villiage last week, and in the course of their business found it necessary to visit a certain pub. After transacting their busine ss, and of course not forgetting to chaff the fair dispenser of lubrication, they departed, but on the way home one of them discovered that the innocent goddess of the bar had planted a lady's bustle in one of his overcoat pockets. Two habitues of the Joker's Club rendezvous are in the habit of wearing stove-pipe hats,' and it appears they are each under the impres- sion that the paragraph last week referred to him. To settle the matter, I would suggest they should take a ballot at the next general meeting, the victim to stand drinks round. If they agree to this, I hope they won't forget to leave three penn'orth at the bar for me. Three schoolboys were lately overheard to this effect :-lst Boy: Animals don't go to heaven, do they ?—2nd Boy No, but birds do.- 3rd boy dissented from this, whereat 2nd Boy remarked It- is in the Bible birds will be in heaven. This convinced the third boy, but he thought magpies should not be endued with immortality: as they are so cheeky." He then related a story of a magpie which had snatched a biscuit from his hand, so depriving him of a little luxury. As at other places, the course of true love has not run smooth near Blaenavon, where a young lady had to give up her young man at the request of her father. The lover left the neighbourhood for the space of six months, and on returning the other day found the fair one in company with another. Nothing daunted, how- ever, he marched up to the pair, and, asserting his supremacy, stalked off with the girl, to the discomfiture of the jilted one and the subsequent indignation of the prospective father-in-law. The Pontypool Bicycle Club's annual picnic will be held at Raglan Castle on Thursday, July 6th—the date of the marriage of the Duke of York. As the places of business in Pontypool will be closed that day the picnie should be largely patronised. The journey will be made by break as usual, but on this occasion a start will be made at 12 noon. Bearing in mind the enjoy- ableness attending the last picnic at Raglan, there should be a rush for tickets. Walk up, ladies and gentlemen, and secure you seats. Tickets limited to members and friends. Two Pontypool bicyclists had a remarkable, not to mention unpleasant, spin on Sunday last. Their adventures would take too long to relate fully, but briefly stated they were something like this :—Cyclist Number 1 seized with cramp (as the result of drinking a quantity of water) Cyclist Number 2 lost a crank pin Number 1 carried by Number 2 to a shady spot Number 2 rode off on Number l's machine for brandy, which had to be obtained on strap," because both had left their purses at home Numbers 1 and 2 ate a square meal at a friendly cottage, said meal being hung up and, finally, the mourntul spectacle of a damaged rider with a good machine, and a sound rider with a damaged machine, walking up Trosnant and pushing their steeds. The moral of this is that bicyclists should not cycle for pleasure on Sunday and it is satisfactory to learn that both heroes of this misadventure have resolved to do so never no more," but go to church instead. Public speakers and ministers of the Gospel, etc., should be careful how they select similes for the purpose of enforcing truths upon the minds of their hearers, or the effect of an other- wise good speech or sermon is likely to be lost, at least as regards some of their auditors. A minister in this district recently made use of the simile of an eagle flying high above all other birds as typical of the approach of a Christian's soul towards God. Carrying the figure a little further, the reverend gtntleman observed that it was said that sometimes the eagle flew so high as to arrive at the centre of gravity between this and another world, and there rested before again descending into our sphere. Most probably the reverend gentleman did not believe this himself —for the sake of the cloth I hope he did not- it being so stupendously impossible that scarcely anyone could hear it uttered without having his centre of gravity very seriously perturbed—as mine was, I must confess. This idea is certainly worthy of Jules Verne paying a visit to the moon, however, is nothing to this night of ima- gination. The nearest world to ours—the planet Venus—is something like 30,001),000 miles dis- tant. Supposing the centre of gravity between this planet and Venus to be midway (though as a matter of fact it would be farther away from the Earth than that, because Venus is the smaller of the two), the eagle would have to fly a trifle of 15,000,000 miles, to traverse which distance, at the rate of 100 miles an hour, continuously flying night and day, he would need about 17 years. Even making due allowance for the lessening gravitation of Earth as the eagle increased his distance from it, and the consequent possible acceleration of his flight if he had not over exerted himself at the start, it will be clear that the king of birds would be likely to enjoy his rest when he reached the centre of gravity.
