NOTES AND COMMENTS. EARLY CLOSING. THE late Earl Russell, who filled In succession most of the great offices of State, is credited with the saying that to accomplish a reform in this country needs con- tinuous work for a generation. In the matter of early closing of shops more than two generations—reckoning a generation at thirty years-have passed away, and not much advance has been made, at least, so far as the Statute-book is concerned. The Early Closing Association was formed as long ago as 1842, being itself the offspring of another similar association, the Metropolitan Drapers' Associa- tion, founded in the year 1838. And now, in 1901, a Blue-book has been issued giving the report of a Select Committee of the House of Lords on the Early Closing of Shops, and the evidence taken before it. It is fitting that this report, which cannot fail to stimulate public opinion, should emanate from the House of Lords. In the House of Lords, "who toil not, neither do they spin," have been found the strongest opponents of measures for lightening the lot of those who toil and spin to excess. **«»*••* The House of Commons, which has its oon- stituents to consider, has been far more sym- pathetic with the grievances of overworked shopkeepers. In 1893, under a Liberal Govern- ment, the House passed a resolution unani- mously that "the excessive and unnecessarily long hours of labour in shops are injurious to the comfort, health and well-being of all con- cerned, and that it is desirable to give to local authorities such powers as may be necessary to enable them to carry out the general wishes of the shopkeeping community with reference to the hours of closing." In 1895 a bill to effect this resolution was read without opposition a second time. But 1895 was an evil year for struggling tradesmen. It installed in office a Government whose reck- lessness and extravagance cannot fail to have diminished their profits. The tale told by the Board of Trade Returns, and the certainty of distress next winter in all the large centres of population, will make their struggle acuter. As the difficulties of living increase, the com- petitive rivalry which leads to excessive hours will grow keener. Shopkeepers and their assistants who can look ahead will wisely support an early closing measure. It will protect them against themselves. But it would never be imposed upon them without their own concurrence. The expression of that concurrence by over a hundred shop- keepers' organisations, in a petition addressed to the House of Lords, is one of the moat hopeful signs of the future. For indeed this question is one of national concern. The health of hundreds of thousands of our fellow-countrymen and countrywomen is being undermined by a suicidal system, which keeps them standing in vitiated atmo- spheres from eighty to a hundred hours a week. Medical opinion is unanimous as to the consequences. In 1886 the then Presi- dents of the Royal College of Physicians and of the Royal Collogeoof Surgeons issued cill,ular to the medical men of London, which was signed by the most distinguished names in the profession. It set forth that the signa- tories were satisfied that the prolonged hours of labour in shops were grievously injurious to health. These views were re-affirmed before the House of Lords Committee last summer by Sir W. S. Church, now president of the Royal College of Physicians, and Sir W. MacCormac, now president of the Royal College of Surgeons. It is not the severity of the labour, they say, so much as the pro- longed hours of confinement that does the damage. Anaemia, rickets and tuberculosis in its manifold forms are the frequent result. Nor is the mischief restricted to the im- mediate sufferers. The seeds of disease are inherited by their children, and the race steadily deteriorated. Owing partly to their comparative general weakness, and partly to the conditions peculiar to their sex, the women are the worst sufferers. Even men are used up at forty, and rendered unfit to earn a livelihood. **••#••• By the Bill introduced last session by Lord Avebury, better known as Sir John Lubbock, into the House of Lords, it is proposed that two-thirds of the local shopkeepers desiring a curtailment of the hours of business in a district should memorialise the local authority, specifying the hour they think suitable for closing, and that the local authority should then be empowered to carry their wishes into effect. Undoubtedly there will bj difficulties at first, and some have thought that a simple majority, rather than two-thirds, should in this, as in other cases, govern the whole, Seeing, however, the hostility formerly dis- played by Lord Salisbury to the more moderate proposal, it will be as well to remember that half a loaf is better than no bread." As in other matters, the attitude of the present Ministry upon the question is determined by the proximity of an election. In October, 18144-just seven years ago-when the Liberal Government was tottering to its fall, Mr. Chamberlain was enthusiastically in favour of early closing. It became part of his" Social Programme." On January 14th, 1*9.1, with a Dissolution still nearer, Lord Salisbury wrote: "I have expressed more than once my full approval of the principles involved in Mr. Chamberlain's proposals," which were those of Lord Avebury's bill. In 1900, safe in office with a Tory majority, Mr. Chamberlain was doubtless too busy Lord Salisbury, we know, was opposed to the Bill altogether. With the callous indifference uniformly ex- hibited by him towards those engaged in the struggle for existence, Lord Salisbury said: "If the shopkeeper or the shop assistant does not like his trade he can leave and go to another." And now a Select Committee, of which Lord Salisbury was a member, has unanimously reported in its favour. Is Lord Salisbury a convert, or will his conversion be deferred till the approach of the next General Election ? If he is a convert, why did he throw out the Bill in 1900 ? If he is not a convert, why did he approve the principle in 11895 ? In either case, is his record upon this Iquestion or that of Mr. Chamberlain one that can inspire any confidence in suffering shop- keepers or their assistants ?

SHIP-REPAIRING AT BARRY. COMPLETION OF A LARGE CONTRACT. TRIAL TRIP ON WEDNESDAY. The e.e. Indra, of Liverpool, belonging to Messrs T. B. Royden of that place, a fine screw steamer of some 6,000 tons, which has been under repairs since May at the Barry Graving Dock and Engineering Company's dry docks, has just been completed, and on Wednesday ran her trial trip prior to being taken over by the owners. As previously stated in these columns at the time the vessel was towed to Burry, the Indra was wrecked on the shores of the Red Sea in August, 1900, where she was abandoned, but was afterwards successfully salved and brought back to England. While ashore the vessel became a prey to the looting natives, who stripped her of all her woodwork and gear in the interior of the cabins, deok- houses, and on the deck itself, and they even removed portions of the machinery in their efforts to carry away anything of value. The repairs required were so extensive that only three firms in the kingdom put in tenders for the work, and of these the Barry Graving Dock and Engineering Company were successfuL On her arrival at Barry on May 22nd the vessel presented quite a wrecked appearance, and when all the defective parts bad been removed the bare framework remained in dry dock. It was stated then that the cost of the repairs would be about £ 30,000. The steamer now looks quite span and span. I-he is 430 feet in length, 51 feet in breadth, and 30 feet in depth, and it is probable that the owners will use the vessel for South African trade. The repairs are about the most extensive of any done in the Bristol Channel, and the despatch reflects the greatest possible credit on the firm. TRIAL TRIP AND LUNCHEON. Mr Roper, of the firm of Messrs T. B. Royden, "nd Mr Goodman, marine surveyor, represented the oa-tiers on board the vessel, and Mr T. R. Thompson (chairmau), Mr John Lowdon (manag- ing director), and Mr Handcock represented the directorate of the Rm y Gr" vi ng Dock on beard. The Indra steamed down Channel as far as the Nash at varying speed. The engines worked ad- mirably, however, and afforded the greatest pos- sible satisfaction. After returning to dock the company repaired to Culley's Hotel, where Mr Handoock and Mr Lewellen, two directors of the company Captain R. Davies, the dockmaster, and other gentlemen joined the guests. Several toasts were drunk, including Success to the Indra," to which Mr Roper and Mr Goodman replied, and both congratulated the Graving Dock Company on the character of the work, aud in turn the health of Mr John Lowdon and Mr T. R. Thompson were drunk.

BARRY SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION. CANDIDATES PROBABLE AND PROSPEC- TIVE. NOMINATION DAY NOV. 4TH. Mr A. J. Harris, cleik to the Cardiff Board of Guardians, the returning officer for the School Board election, has fixed upon November 4th as the date for nomination. The election will, as far ss we can understand, txke place on the 18th Novem- bsr, and, with the date fixed, there are rumours respecting many probable candidates. Of the members of the old Board, it is definitely stated by both Mr John Lowdon (the chairman) and Capt R. Davies that, in accordance with the declaration made in these columns nearly 12 months ago, they J will not on any consideration enter the contest, and will retire after 12 years' service in the interests of the ratepayers. It ill questionable also whether Mr Peter Wright will seek re-election, but there has been no definite statement on the part of that individual as to whether he wiil or will not stand. All the other six members are certain of seeking re-election, the Catholics, who held a meeting last Sunday week to discuss the matter, having by a majority determined to support the re-election ( f the Rev Father Byrne, their pastor, and although there have been indications of a desire to run two Catholic candidates, only one (according to pre- sent intention) will go to the poll. Deputations have waited upon the Rev Ben Evans, representa- tive of several denominations, urging upon that gentleman to come forward, and he has de- citleci to place his vast experience of School Board work at Llanelly at the disposal of the rate payers, seeing that they evince such a keen desire to utilise his services. The Rev D. H. Williams, M.A., Congregational minister, of Barry, who has also devoted much valuable time in North Wabs to the interests of education, is also being pressed, and may go to the poll. Mr Hybart, of Stumpy Hall, whose intention to enter the contest was stated in these columns some weeks ago, will make a determined stand, while Mr Austiu Beynon, of Craiglands, Barry Island, a gentleman eminently fitted for public service, will also come forward. The Rev T. Pandy John is declared to be one of the probables," and would make a very good mem- ber. The Ratepayers' Association and the Liberal and Conservative Clubs have yet to be considere,l, and the prospect of a spirited conttst is very great.
LOCAL POLICE COURT NEWS. MONDAY. Bafore MRDAVIY) DAviEsand Councillor D. MORGAN. OBLIVION. John Whittington's defence was that he reo membered nothing at all about it. In fact, he was too drunk to cause his mind to operate properly. In this oblivious state he was found by the police in a local hotel, and was now ordered to pay a fine of 5s.-Quite a different case was that of Minnie White, f Heury-street, Cadoxton-Moors, who declared that she did not let her tongue overcome her discretion, neither did she act with anything but decorum. She was fined 2s 6d.—Susannah Evans, another defendant, for being drunk It. d disordeily, was proved by Police-constable Lewis to have be, a acting in a very unbecoming way opposite the Windsor Hotel, one night, and she w as fined 5s.—The other cases included Edward Jenkins, who was found fast asleep in an urinal, fined 5s Wm Nialon, 7s 6d Peter Craig, 5s; Henry McLoughlin, 7s 6d John Fay, 7s 6d John Olsen, 7s 6d Thomas Thompson, 7s 6d James Bennett, 5 Thomas Smith, 7s 6d John Fox and Patrick Tenan, who had been locked up after an orgie on Saturday night, were each cautioned, while a man from the City of Coik, who had travellrd the world around, and declared it was ce tainly not in accordance with his ideas of pro- priety to knock doors of houses after midnight, was also sent his way a free man. Catherine Jones, with two separate offences against her, was sent to prison for 14 days with hard labour while Thos. Bunningham, for being drunk and disorderly on Sunday, was nned 5s and Lewis Williams, a labourer, for being drunk and disorderly in High- street recently, was also ordered to pay a crown. WHAT DOES IT COST ? Superintendent G idrJ ings a-'ked for an order against Wm Webb, labourer, in respect of his son, who had been committed. Defendant earned 28s a week, and had five children under twelve years of age, and two over that age. Defendant: I can't pay anything. Mr I). Davies (magistrate) You must pay it would cost you 4s or 5s to keep him even if he were home. Defendant Oh, no, it wouldn't, sir he would have to run with the rest. The magistiates made an order for the payment of Is 6d a week.
Dinas Powis Farmer Fined. John Davies, Westra, Dinas Powis, was fined 93 and costs by the Barry magistrates on Thursday last for neglecting to notify the police of the out- break of swine fever on his far.n on the 10th of September.
CHILL OCTOBER. This is the month when so many people, whose systems have been wtakened by the heat of Sum- mer, find themselves suffering from cold, coughs, difficulty in breathing, and chilly sensations generally. The heat of Summer frequently results in weakening the digestive system, vshich in turn reacts upon the liver. As soon as the liver is deranged a certain amount of bile finds its way into the blood, making it sluggish and impure. When the system is in this state the food taken is only imperfectly digested and instead of creat- ing rich, pure blood, blood of a very poor quality is produced. fhe outcome of this is that the system loses its resisting power and the least draught brings on a cold more or less severe. The circulation also becomes feeble, and the hands and feet are only kept warm with difficulty. Fits of shivering and suefzing are common, and a miser- able chilly sensation prevails. The nerves are also affected, symptoms of which are restlessness, de- pression, and a sensation of impending evil. Now all these dire ailments arise primarily from disorders of the digestive system and the liver indeed, liver chill may be said to account for most of them. It is of no use to take cough mixture for the cold, sleeping draughts for restlessness at night, and tonics for the weakened system. To do this is to deal only with distinct branches of the evil. What is required is a medicine which will remove all thf se branch ailments by eradicating the root trouble. Put the liver in proper order and the effects of its disorder must disappear. No other result is possible, just as when it is disordered the ailments referred to above must ensue. Chas. Forde's Bile Beans for Biliousness are a liver specific. For liver chill, sluggish liver, defeotive bile flow, and the various results of these dis- orders Bile Beans are unequalled. Digestive troubles, headache, colds, shivering, bad breath- ing, chest pains, temale weaknesses and ailments, rheumatism, and a host of other ailments traceable ultimately to the condition of the liver and diges- tive system vanish before them. In thousands of cases they have cured when all else has failed.

A Barry Island Disturber. DISORDER AND ASSAULT. A youzig man named Robert Molton (19), living at Barry Island, was made to answer, before the local magistrates on Monday, for charges of assault, refusing to quit the premises of the Marine Hotel, using obscene language, and disorderly conduct respectively. The four offences were alleged to have taken place on the same day, viz., Oct. 5th. Molton had visited the Victoria Hotel early in the evening, and here be appears to have invited Police- constable Poolman to have a drink. The con- stable refused, and his refusal was the subject of some obscene and disgusting remarks. Then, going to the Island, he appears to have got into an argument with Mr Vine, brother of the ".Cellsee of the Marine Hotel, who ordered him to quit the premises. Refusing to obey this request, Mr Vine was about to jump over the counter, when he was struck in the face. When outside the hotel Molton came under the obser- vation of Police-constable Shillum, who also reported him cn account of his disorderly behaviour in the street.—The magistrates de- clared that they could not countenance any conduct of the kind exhibited by Molton, who should learn to behave himself properly in the streets and in a licensed hotel. They imposed a fine ot 10s and costs for the assault, 10s includ- ing costs for the refusal to quit, and 5s for indecent language, making altogether a total fine of 32s.
CUNARD LINE OF STEAMERS. WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY. In view of the fact that the Cunard Linu Etruria," on her outward passage last Saturday, had the Marconi system of wireless telegraphy on board, thus completing the installation on the four Saturday mail boats of the Company, attention may be directed to the success which has already been attained on the Cunard vessels by this means of telegraphy. On her last outward voyage tht "Campania" was enabled, fully eleven hours before arriving in sight of the usual signalling station Hot Fire Island, to get into coinmunicutioc with the Nintucket Lightship by wir>less mes -age, aud also, by the same means, to keep u1 intercourse with the Irish coast fome 5; hours aftei departure from Qutenstown. It may, therefore, b( said that the length of time during which th< steamer was actually out of touch with land wa: diminished to 5 days, 5 hours, 16 minutes while had this reduction occurred on the fastest voyage the" Campania" has inide, this period woul( have been brought down to 4 days, 15 hours 6 minutes. The local agent for the steamers is M Edward Rees, auctioneer, 79, Holtou-roaa, Barn DOCK.

WAS IT A POISON SNAKE ? Sometimes John Garrett would go from mornin till night without bite or sup. This was three c four years ago. Every morning he got up with disagreeable, gnawing pain in the stomach ( abdomen—he couldn't quite locate it, but he felt all the same. Still he kept on working. Heinear to see a doctor but neglected ir. So a year ra away. By then the complaint had got hold of hit as a wild grape vine does of an old tree. He was a man full of pain as an unsunned cellf is of mould and crawling things. Often they kel hot fiaunels on him for twelve hours before he got bit of ease and for three weeks straight away I was in racking pains. At intervals it made tl sweat run off him in streams. Then he went to bed, John did, and a docti took him in hand, as a pilot does a ship when tI navigation is growing ugly. My doctor," Garre says, was the best of men, but he didn't set;m know what ailed me." Nor did the other medic man who followed him. On this our poor brother's heart sank within hin as King David's did when he heard of the fate Absalom. Having nothing to do except to thin) he thought he would go to a London hospital ar ask the learned men there what was the matt with him. They said his right kidney was diseas( and the left one affected. They feared they couldu help him, but would take him in for a month if I cared to stay. He said he didn't care to stay, at went home to Dartford. Quite right. As a plai to die in hop country beats a hospital Then he told his home doctor what the Lond( doctors had said. The home doctor agreed wi the London doctors and told him he would so< join the silent majority-who are done with di eases. The end of Garrett's story, written by him at h home, 13, Wellington-road, Dartford, Ken January 17th, 1901, runs this way I kept out bed and moved about all I could. I turned up the works sometimes, but from January 1900 Easter I did not earn enough to keep myself. Mo than once they sent me home. For three years I lingered along in this fashioi when one Sunday I read in Lloyd's Newspaper aboi a stevedore who was handled like me and had bet cured by Mother Seigel's Syrup and without sa ing a word to anybody I got that medicine ar began taking it. The first bottle pricked up my appetite, and actually felt hunger—a strange sensation for me. slept better. The pain was not so sharp, and tl- kidney secretion was clearer and ot a better colou The second bottle did me more good still, and aft< thp third I felt like a king, I mean a healthy an happy king, if there is such a being. to day 1 feel as well as I ever did. Saturds last I felt a bit out of sorts, from indigestion pr< bably, and took a dose of Seigel's Syrup and t( day I am right as rain. You may publish m tale."—JOHN GARRETT. Did this man have Bright's disease ? You hai heard what the doctors said. Let us leave tt point to them. Whether the snake that bit t was a poison snake or not is of no importance afti we have got rid of the effects of the bite. Anyhow whatever Garrett had, Mother Seigel's Syrup cure him, and the rest is nothing. He has been employed at the Daily Telegrap paper mills for twenty-six years, but does not loo his sixty years, his real age. Meeting him to-da you would not imagine he had ever been ill at all.
