WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1891. MR PARNELL IMMOVABLE. MR P ARK ELL will not budge. This is the latest news we have from headquarters. The deposed leader is determined to stick to his post, and lay claim to the title and the honour of leadership whether the Irish Nationalists will acknowledge him or not. At a meeting held yesterday in the notorious No. 15 committee room, he once more hoisted his flag a score of Irish members surrounded him and cheered him, and now by their approval and with their pledged support, he is to open a campaign in Ireland with a view to win the hearts of the people. Some of the Irish members are to proceed without delay to the scene of action, but out of deference to their Welsh friends as many as can be spared will remain behind in order to take part in the debate on Disestablishment, to which Mr PRITCHARD MORGAN'S motion will give rise on Friday next, Even for small mercies, Wales has learned to be devoutly thankful, and we dare say that this not very magnanimous conces- sion will be at least duly acknowledged. We do not, however, anticipate a very cordial vote of thanks being sent from Wales to Mr PARNELL and his friends for this little bit of a concession. The Welsh certainly deserve a little more. They have been among the most loyal—the most loyal, indeed—supporters and promoters of the Home Rule movement out of Ireland. They took to the cause when it was in its cradle, and they have clung to it bravely ever since. They have even kept back legislation directly bearing upon their own interests, and all for the sake of Ireland. Yet when matters come to a push with Mr PARNELL, even Wales is to lose a few Irish votes out of deference to him. Everything is to give way to Mr PARNELL. Home Rule, Welsh Disestablishment, everything is to be sacrificed at the shrine of his ambition. It is now no longer Home Rule, but Mr PAR-NELLS leadership that the new campaign is to have as the end in view, and we will venture to say that Welsh Liberals would not lift a finger to forward any such movement. But there is no need to regret the early com- mencement of the new campaign. The sooner the Liberal party is able to realise Mr PARNELL'S true position in Ireland the better. About one-fourth of the Nationalist party in the House of Commons has stood by him and refused to acknowledge anyone else as leader. In Parliament, there- fore, lie has a somewhat strong following. If he should have a similar following among the Irish people, the Home Rule cause will be considerably handicapped, the more especially because Mr PARNELL is evidently bent upon repudiating Mr GLADSTONE'S Irish policy, and thus creating a split. Everything now depends upon the reception awaiting the Parnellite members when they perform their tour of proselytism on the other side of the channel. Should Mr PARNELL'S mission meet with even tolerable success, it will fare ill with Home Rule. Without the hearty co-operation of Ireland, there cannot be any legislation of the nature of Home Rule for Ireland. The house divided against itself will necessarily *fall. We have every reason, therefore, for desiring the utter failure of Mr PARNELL'S new campaign. It may be conceded that the Irish have an indefeasible right to choose their own leaders. Nobody will demur to that. Bnt it is equally necessary for Irishmen every- where to know that every conquest Mr PARNELL and his friends make on their forthcoming tour will be a fresh obstacle in the way of the cause which they have at 'heart. Mr M'CARTHY and his supporters have their task also carved out for them. Their career will be followed with deep in- terest. If they win Ireland by securing the general, repudiation of Mr PARNELL'S leader- ship they will also win Home Rule. The possibilities on either side are for them important. They unseated Mr PARNELL in the committee room it only remains for them to do likewise in Ireland, though to a greater extent. This Parnellite appeal to the people of Ireland, will soon show whether the best of all policies will not be that of leaving Ireland alone for a time, until she rights herself and regains her balance. We admit in the fullest sense and in the most explicit terms possible that Ireland's right to Home Rule cannot depend upon Mr RARNELL. The right remains the same under all circumstances. But what if the Irish themselves give Mr PARNELL'S claim to the leatdership the place which the struggle for Homte Rule should occupy ? It is clear that, in this instance, the Home Rule cause must stand out in the dold until the struggle over Mr PARNELL has come to an end.
i ■ i— — IT is to be earnestly hoped that Mr WM. DAVIES will give a favourable considera- tion to the unanimous wish of his Associa- tion, and consent not only to retain the seat for the time being, but to fight the constituency at the general election if the Tories venture into the field, The party in Pembrokeshire have been indulgent to Mr DAVIES, and have not insisted upon that regular .attendance at St. Stephen's, and that unremitting attention to Parliamentary duties which is now expected of Welsh members. But in this they have only carried out their part of the compact with their member. When Mr DAVIES placed himself at the service of the party and consented to contest the seat, he made it clearly understood that he could not give that attention to the work which many a younger man, or men with more leisure, could give. He was accepted as the candi- date for the county on his own terms, and the party are evidently ready and willing to retain his services on the same terms. If he consents to stand again it is well known that he will be able to hold the seat against all comers.
II SOUTH WALES NOTES. [BY COSMOS.] THE HUMOUR OF THE BANKRUPTCY COURT. SOME of the reports of bankruptcy pro- ceedings are amusing reading. At New- port, yesterday, the affairs of an outfitter revealed the fact that he began business in November, 1889, with a borrowed capital of 930. Although during the last 12 months he had paid out no less than 14 actions of creditors he was unaware that he was insolvent until the end of last year, or thirteen months after he commenced. Can a man be said to be satisfactorily solvent who starts life with minus :230 ? Fifteen months' trading shows a deficiency of £ 523— a loss at the rate of over B54 a month. I have headed this note "The Humour of the Bankruptcy Court," but the creditors will hardly see where the fun comes in. HARE AND HOUNDS. IN Mr Sponge's Sporfciug Tour Mr ifuffington imagined that all hounds were descended from the Beaufort Justice. But what was ludicrous in the case of foxhounds appears likely to come to pass among greyhounds. There are sixty-four dogs named for the blue ribben of the leash," as it is termed, and of these no less than 18 are sired by Greentick. Supposing the whole entry to be equal, the odds would be 3% to 1 against a Greentick winning the stake, but as amongst this family there is the winner of last year the odds are on one I of the Greenticks again being successful. But coursing is dying out. There are always plenty of hares at Altcar, but elsewhere "pussy" is being gradually exterminated. There is no close time for her, and only pro- ducing one or two at a birth, she requires preservation not persecution. Moreover, in the interests of humanity, God's harmless creatures should be protected during the breeding season. A bill is before Parlia- ment to give a close time, but it is opposed, and in consequence we are in danger of losing from our landscapes the picturesque movements of the leporines. SHIRES IN SOUTH WALES. SOUTH WALES is sadly in want of fresh blood among its cart horses. While some parts of North Wales—Montgomeryshire to wit—have become a happy hunting ground for the American buyer of the Shire breed, his presence is unknown in this half of the Principality. There have been some attempts made lately to remedy this defeat, but they are so recent as at present to show no results. Clubs or societies have been formed in order to purchase or hire tallions, and nob lemen like Lord Tredegar have bought animals of pedigree and placed them at the service of the farmers. The Cardiff Association was, perhaps, I the first to start, and in the acqui- sition of Trentside Ilnd a really excellent animal was secured. However, I believe I am correct in saying that this is about the only society in Glamorganshire, and about the only horse with any preten- sions. Monmouthshire is rather better off, and the Caerwent club has gone to the right quarter this season for a sire. Mr Muntz possesses an excellent strain, many of his mares tracing back to England's Glory who left so much good stock in the Midlands. The Caerwent Shire Horse Association has purchased a three-year-old at this gentleman's sale, and if the buyers have been careful in their selection, the district will certainly benefit by the im- portation. GLAMORGANSHIRE CRICKET CLUB. I NOTICE that the annual meeting of the Glamorganshire County Cricket Club has been fixed for February 21st, at the Royal Hotel, Swansea. Considering that the majority of the subscribers reside near Car- diff, the place is not well chosen for a general gathering. However, the satisfactory part about the business is the balance sheet, which shows a balance of jBll odd to the good. This financial result must be con- sidered as very careful pilotage for the opening seasons. It can hardly be expected that season 1891 will exhibit such satisfac- tory figures. The matches with Northum- berland and Durham will cost at least sixty pounds net. THE DEPARTURE OF AN M. H. MR ButT ST. ALBYN JENNER informed many friends at the Glamorganshire meet on Mon- day that he intended leaving this county in midsummer for Somersetshire, in response to an offer made him of the Hounds, Kennel, and Country, known as the West Somerset Hunt. Much regret is felt in the neigh- bourhood of Bridgend at his determination, and he is equally sorry to break off all his life-long connections here. But as Mr Jenner has a large interest and estate in that neighbourhood it is not to be much won- dered at. ALLEGED FLAMELESS EXPLOSIVES. QUIt Rhondda mining correspondent writes:—As it was I that furnished the South Wales Daily News with the detailed accounts of the shot-firing experiments carried out in the Rhondda about twelve months ago, allow me to state most emphatically that the "Seeurite" is not a flameless explosive, and judging from the numerous tests that have been made so far with powders of all kinds, there is no such thing as a flameless explosive." To call an explosive flame- less simply because it does not ignite fire- damp, or the most explosive mixture of air and gas, when encased in some material soaked in a certain solution or water, is absurd. Whilst the experiments were being carried out, I asked the representative of the" Securite Company why on earth did they mislead the public by designating their explosive as flameless," and the immediate reply was that the powder had never been by them described as "flameless," but the firm called themselves The Flameless Ex- plosive Company." That was the explana- tion I received, and I stated so in my lengthy report. Her Majesty's Inspector of Mines for South Wales superintended the carrying out of the whole of the tests, and I am positive Mr Robson will admit that as regards" flamelessness," the "carbonite" was by far the most satisfactory or the best explosive. The "Carbonite" was tried without a case of any kind, and under precisely the same conditions as the others, as regards the ad- justment of the apparatus, &c, but it only ignited the firedamp once, though several experiments were made with it. But this once was quite sufficient to condemn it, from a flamelessness point of view. SECURITE FROM A PRACTICAL VIEW. THE weak point in Mr T. H. Owen's letter, from a practical post of observation, is this Our contention is (alluding to the Securite ') that if our instructions are followed out we can always guarantee similar results," namely, flamelessness. If the instructions specified in the various provisions of the colliery rules had been carefully "followed" we should not have heard of a large number of the terrible colliery explosions that have killed thousands of poor miners. What right have we to assume that colliers or colliery officials will take care to invariably carry with them or keep in the mines the pipe-like bags, and soak the material in the specially-prepared solution recommended by the Securite Com- pany," and carefully cover the explosive with it previous to inserting the charge in the hole in the rock or the ccal. Then it must be taken into consideration that the greater the diameter of the charge—and the diameter must be increased by encasing the explosive in a thick material—the greater must be the hole drilled into the strata re- quired to be dislodged or removed. A number cf the other inflammable explosives would probably be flameless if enveloped in a "patent" case. I should not be sur- prised to find the ordinary compressed powder "lfameless" on being fired in a "patent" sheath. A "water-cartridge" was tried on the occasion of the experiments I have referred to, and indeed it proved absolutely flameless, but I am informed that it has been known to exhibit flamo too. A flameless explosive has not yet been invented or discovered suitable for practicable pur- poses in coal mines.

THE determination of the directors of the Swansea Tramways and Improvement Com- pany not to recognise the men's union has led to increased public sympathy with the men, and to the taking of steps which will make the fight on far more even terms than were originally expected. Already one gentleman has come forward with a promise of jB2 a week towards the men's funds while the strike lasts, and ether gentlemen of public position and means has put their names down for smaller sums. The amount required to maintain the men is less than j350 a week, and what with these promises, the funds at the disposal of the union, ?nd the practical sympathy of the members of other unions in the town may be depended on to give, there seems every prospect of the men not being crushed as quickly as the directors expect, and, in fact, of the men actually proving to have the greatest stay- ing powers. The employers don't seem to care much so long as the strike concludes before the Good Friday and Easter traffic begins, and the men are now straining all they know to hold out beyond that period, which is always a good harvest to the com- pany. Meanwhile the public inconvenience is extremely great, and it becomes a ques- tion worthy of consideration whether the Swansea County Council, like that of Cardiff, cannot interpose in the interests of the public.
MR WM. DAVIES, M.P. A MEETING of the executive of the Liberal Three Hundred was held at Haverfordwest on Tuesday, and was largely attended. Mr Wm. Davies, M.P. for Pembrokeshire, informed the meeting that it was not his intention to offer himself for re-election at the dissolution of Parliament. The meeting was unanimous in asking Mr Davies to reconsider his decision, which he ultimately con- sented to do, and it was resolved that the meeting stand adjourned until the 13th of March next, when the matter will be definitely settled.
THE ELECTRICALTFIRE AT CARDIFF. It having been suggested that the fire at the Marquis of Bute's recent mayoral banquet might be due to gas, and not to the electric light, Mr W. H. Massey, of Twyford, engineer to the Queen's Household, was asked to report upon the matter. He finds that there was no gas-burner within 15ft. of the point where the fire broke out, and that the accident was undoubtedly caused by electricity. One of the electric collar-holders became overheated by an arc at the inside ter- minals, and THIS set fire to the tissue paper decorations which improperly surrounded the fittings. The roof of the drill-hall in which the banquet was held has been slightly scorched in places, but the building itself has sustained no damage, although some valuable family paintings .3 were destroyed.

--A If' ANOTHER FLOOD AT JOHNS- TOWN. [EEOTEK'S TELEGRAM.] NEW YORK, Feb. 17. All the lower part of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, is flooded, and the water is rising rapidly. Hundreds of houses have been deserted, and several bridges swept away, the people escaping in boats and taking refuge in dwellings on higher grounds.
SADLER'S ANTECEDENTS. RESUMED INQUEST. The value of publicity in the tracking of crime has been exemplified in the case of the most recent of the Whitechapel atrocities, for it was the reports in the papers which led Duncan Campbell, an inmate of the Sailors' Home, to come forward and say that on Friday he was standing in the hall when the accused came in to get a rest, remarking that ho had been out all night—that he had been sick, and wanted a drink. He offered a knife for sale, and said it was one which he had got in America. Campbell bought the knife of him for a shilling, and as it was "clammy" he washed it in water, which became discolured. Campbell had his suspicions aroused by what he read, and communicated with the police. In the meantime he had sold the knife for sixpence to a marine- store dealer, Mr Robinson, in Dock-street, who, it appears, used to cut up his Sunday dinner. Mr Robinson even njw attaches no im- portance to the knife. It is described as one of a kind not usually carried by sailors. It has a brass haft, with a pattern upon it, and the blade is about four inches in length, broad, and curving to a sharp point. The edge was blunt when Robin- son bought the knife, but he sharpened it and rubbed it up. The knife is now in possession of the police, and Campbell has identified the prisoner as the man who sold him the weapon. It is stated that the knife has been found to correspond with the wound in the woman's throat. Sadler denies that the knife is his. When charged with the crime he also reiterated his innocence. Amongst the other effects belonging to Sadler and found upon him at the time of the arrest were tobacco, pipe, an advance note, a postal order for- 22, several cards and memoranda. The most noticeable article was a large metal clasp- knife. In the kit removed froih the steamship Fez there was nothing except the usual clothing. The question is now asked,* could the accused alio have been concerned in the previous murders ? It is by no means clear that he ought to be charged with the last, ana the police are not dis- posed to attach too much weight to purely circumstantial evidence. JAKES SADLER, AS HE APPEARED AT THE THAMES POLICE-OOURT. (This portrait is copied from the Daily Graphic.) His antecedents have now been ascertained as far back as March, 1887, and from this informa- tion it jus indisputably shown that with half the series of crimes attributed to the East End miscreant he could have had absolutely nothing to do. It appears that on the 24th March, 1887, he joined the Georgian at Newport, and remained with her until the 5th May following, when he left her in London. From this latter date until August he was in England, and presumably in the metropolis. It was during this period that the murders Commenced, an unknown woman being found during Christmas week near Osborne and W entworth-street, and Martha Turner being stabbed in 39 places on August 7th, 1888, in some model dwellings in Commercial-street, Spital" fields. It must be said that certainly the occur- rence of these two crimes during the man's stay on land lends colour to the original suspicion, but the times of happening of the succeeding crimes, on the other hand, supply a good answer to the suggestion. Sadler' went away to sea again on the 17th August, 1888, in the Winestead, and did n?t reach London until the evening of the 1st October following. During his absence, no fewer than four murders were committed, two of them, strange to say, being on the morn- ing of the day immediately preceding his arrival in the Thames. These murders were discovered on the 31st August in Buck's-row, and the 7th September in Hanbury-street, and on the 30th September in Mitre-square and Eerner- street. In order to see if it was possible for Sadler to have left his ship so as to be in London on September 30th, the log-book was inspected, and this clearly showed that such a thing would have been impossible, as the vessel did not arrive until eight o'clock in the evening of the 1st October. During his stay after this voyage the peculiarly atrocious murder of Mary Janet Kelly on November 9th occurred, the victim being done to death in her own room, and mutilated in a way far exceeding in complete ferocity the preceding crimes. On the 8th May, 1889, having been in England for over seven months, Sadler went on another voyage, his ship this time being the Bilbao. His absence lasted until the 7th July. Ten days after his return the murder of Alice Mackenzie in Castle Alley took place, this being the last of the Whitechapel horrors preceding the one now ab- sorbing attention. Summing up these facts there- fore, and carefully comparing dates, it is seen that Sadler was in this country when four murders took place, and that he was absent when a similar number were perpetrated. If the widespread supposition that the crimes be of common origin is accepted then it is self-evident that Sadler cannot be regarded as responsible for them in the slightest degree.
RESUMED INQUEST. On Tuesday, at the Working Lads' Institute, Whitechapel, Mr Wynne E. Baxter, coroner for East London, resumed the inquest upon the body of Frances Coles (25). the woman who was found with her throat cut in Chambers-street, on Friday morning last, and for whose murder a man named James Thomas Sadler is in custody. Amongst the officials of the police present were Superintendent Arnold, Chief Inspector Swanson, and Inspector Moore. The Coroner, in discussing the question of fur- ther arrangements, with the jury was afraid that they had a protracted time before them, and that they were likely to have a lot of minute evidence. He also thought they would have the assistance of the Treasury in the matter, which was very un- but very desirable. At this stage Mr Charles Matthews, barrister, entered, and on behalf. of "the Public Prosecutor placed himself at the disposal of the Coroner to render any assistance. It was decided that Mr Matthews should ex- amine the witnesses. James William Coles said I am an inmate of Bermondsey Workhouse. I went to the mortuary at Whitechapel between 10 and 11 on Saturday night. I then saw the dead body of a woman. I identified the body as that of my youngest daughter Frances. As near as I can say her age was about 26. I last saw her alive on Friday, the 6th of February. She was at the workhouse on that day. She was in the habit of visiting me on Friday. She deceived me as to where she was living. She told me it was 42, Richard-street, Commercial-road, but I found that was wrong. I did not know but what she was working for her living in the Minories at a Ir wholesale chemist's. She had a sister, Mary Anne, living at 32, Wear-street, Kingsland-roa d. My daughter had a mark m the left ear. It looked to me as if it was torn by the earring. I had noticed that mark for three or four years. The knuckles of her hands were peculiar. There were great lumps of hard flesh on them, which she told me had come from doing hard work. When I saw her on Friday, the 6th, she told me she would oerae on Sunday. She came on most Sundays to go to church with me. The Coroner said that an ffer had been received from the Common Lodging-house Mission to burv the deceased. Witness said he would like to accept the offer. Mary Anne Cole* said I am single, living at 32> Wear-street, Kingsland-road. I have been to Whitechapel mortuary. I went on Sunday. I there saw the body of a woman which I identify as that of my sister Frances. I last saw liar on the Friday after Christmas. That would be the 26tn December- She was then in good health, but very poer indeed, she looked very dirty. 1 gavehers^me tea and bread and butter..She told me she lived in Richard-street, Commercial-road, and had buried a child three years ago. She also said that she worked in the Minories. 1 had noticed during her life that the lobe of the left ear was torn, and she said it was done by the little girl. 1 also noticed the lumps on her knuckies, which she said was done by her work, and she said that they were very painful. 1 recognised the clothing at the mortuary 1 had given her some of it, and had noticed her wearing a black satin bodice, a hat trimmed with crape, and a long black jacket. The name ot the chemist she worked for was Hoare. She said she had left because there was not much work there in the winter. She said she had earned from 6s to 7s a week. I occasionally noticed that she smelt sf I drink. I did not know any of my sister's friends, and I never visited her. Peter Lerenzo Hawkes said I am an assistant to my mother, a milliner, at 25, Nottingham- street, Bethnal Green.
