Merthyr Corporation Finances. COST OF INQUESTS. EXPENDITURE AT CYFARTHFA PARK. The monthly meeting of the Finance Com- nittee of the Merthyr Corporation was held on Monday afternoon, Coun. Thomas Wil- liams presiding The Borough Controller (Mr. W. R. Har- m) presented a return of local taxation li- tfnces, showing a reduction as compared with the year ended December, 1909. The following figures show the number of licences and re- venue from 1st January to 31st March, 1910, the figures in brackets being the number of li- cences and revenue during the whole of 1909:— hogs, 2,714, £1,017 15s. (2,948 and 1,105 10s.; carriages (four or more wheels), 15, JB31 10s. 949 and £ 102 18s.); carriages (less than four wheels), 61, £ 45 15s. (153 and B114 15s.); Hackney carriages, 27, 220 5s. (46 and BM 10s.); rnotors (not over one ton), 12, £ 25 4s. (15 and £ 31 10s.); motors (exceeding one ton), 0 and B15 15e.); male servants, 30, J322 10s. '40 and £ 30); armorial bearings, 7, 95 5s. (6 1-id £4 10s.); dogs exempted, 44 (60). And .h(,re were issued in districts, other than the Merthyr County Borough, 46 licences for dogs itcpt in the Borough and three licences ,for car- riages. The gun and game licences are not in- cluded in this statement, as they fall in July. The total value of the licences issued last quar- ter amounted to 21,177 19s., whilst the value of the licences issued in the corresponding quarter of last year amounted to £ 1,233. It ill be seen that there are a large number of tioo- licences, carriage licences and motor cycle still to be taken up, unless the dogs, cycles and carriage have been disposed of. —Aid. D W Jones moved that a close inves- tigation take place, and that the necessary Pteps be taken for the collection of the licence money.—The Controller said that already 110 Summonses had been issued in respect of dogs. -The Chairman said the weather was near at hand when people would turn out with their motors and motor cycles. The motion was Agreed to. It was reported that tne Secretary of State had forwarded to the Local GoTernmertt Board a certificate, that during the year ended 29th September, 1909, the management and effici- ency of the Borough Police Force, and the ad- ministration of the pension fund were satis- factory, and a further certificate that the amount payable as the Exchequer contribution the pension fund for the financial year 1909- 10 was 2146 3s. lOd. The Borough Controller reported that the Clerk to the Magistrates had handed to him a statement of the whole of the fines and fees received in the Stipendiary area for i.he three mont'ns ended 31st March, 1910. The unap- propriated fin-1- for January were paid to the Glamorgan (Juniuy and for February and March to the Merthyr County Borough. The statement showed Morihjr's share since the end of January last, and that there has been paid over £ 178 16?. 3d. During the month of January it showed that there was paid to Glamorgan County1 fund. £ 107 7s., and for f^bruary and March, £ 128 65. 6d He h-.d ^«ed for an appointment to enable him to rx- his bocks and check these figures.—This );fas approved. bThe Controller reported that Mr. R. J. "hys, the Borough Coroner, had submitted an Account of £ 27 5s. Id. for his fees and mileage iflo-ivance, on inquests held between the 4th of "eoruarv and the 18th of March, and a further Jocount of C37 10s. 4d.. for expenses incurred at the foregoing inquefts. He (the Controller) Understood that the Town Clerk had received a Communication from the, Coroner, with efer- to the mileage allowance, and until this has been settled the accounts for fees and J^ileagc could not be checked. Of the £ 27 5s. id. ho^eYer> the sum of £ 24 13s. 4d was correct, fIJng the statutory fees for 18 inquests, At 26S. 3d.. and the issue of two permissive war- rants, at 6s. 8d. — Coun. H. M. Lloyd asked whether there was rn understanding that in- vests should be h^Id in public houses.—The 'Chairman: That is the only accommodation Provided.—C-onn. W Lewis thought other places should be provided.—Coun. D. J. I.wis fought, the committee should recommend the ™atch 'Committee to, order the holding of in- quests in places other than miblic houses when Convenient:—Coun. J. \V L""vis thought that .l"e inquiries shouM he hold in a central place, "lalsrnuch as the Coloration were going to pay ^*5 Coroner nccor^irp to mileage. The W*»tch ^mmittee should l.'»v«j a voice in determining Jhere inquesfs should be he'd, inasmuch as Corporation had 1o pay. —The Borough V"°ntroller said the charge 9d. per milt* 01' the first two miles, arid a mile ard tb;-ty ^rds would be charged as two miles.- Aid. a'k^d whether there would b« *.ny /faculty in holding inquests in police "ta- | 'ions.—it was agreed that the Watch Com- Ittee be to consider the question, and tho Town Clerk was nsked to ascertain the nr- ^fijrements between the Coroner and the Coun *y Council.

MERTHYR YOUNG LIBERAL LEAGUE. ENTHUSIASTIC PUBLIC MEETING. SPEECHES BY MR EDGAR JONES, M.P., AND MR. CLEMENT EDWARDS. That the Merthyr branch of the League of Young Liberals will be a power at future Parii- amentary elections was amply demonstrated on Saturday night, when the first public meeting under the auspices of the League was held at thf Drill Hall, undfer the chairmanship of the president, Mr Fred Jones. The hall was well with an enthusiastic audience, and upon the platform were ladies and gentlemen who h-id been instrumental in successfully launching the organisation. It had been announced that Mr. E. G. Hemmerde, K.C., M.P., would be present, but ill-health prevented him fulfilling the engagement, and a worthy substitute was found in Mr. Clem. Edwards, ex M.P for Den- high Boroughs, who at the last election lost his seat by a few votes. Among those on the plat- :wm were, Aid. D. W. Jones, Mr. W. L. iJaniel, Mr. H. H. Southey, Mr. D. D. Wil- Ijams. Mr. Isaac Edwards (Liberal agent), Mr. Percy Williams, Mr. Dd. Price, Mr. D. C. Harris, Mr J. A. Daniel, Mr. Frank Phillips, Aid. J Morgan, Mr. W. R. Edmunds, Rev. J. D. Jones, Rev D. G. Evans, Mr T David, Miss J. Edwards, Mr. B. Jones (secretary), Irs. Llovd Mrs. T. Thomas, Mrs. Thomas, MFS. T. W. Lewis, Mrs. Harry Evans, JUiss M. M Jones (treasurer), Miss S. Price Mhs M. Morgan, Miss G. Jones, Miss C. Griffiths, Miss A. Davies, Mr. H. R. Jones (Beechwood) acted as captain of the stewards. The Chairman, in opening the proceedings, said that meeting was an assurance that the League would become a strong political force in the constituency The League was a tremen- dous power in various parts of the country dur- ing the recent election, and in the contest to come he hoped that the Merthyr League would supply an amount of enthusiasm and energy which would be for the welfare and permanent good of Liberalism (applause). Mr Dd. Price moved, "That this meeting expresses its hearty approval of the veto re- solution now before Parliament, and pledge* itself to support the Prime Minister in securing the supremacy of the House of Commons." He said this was the first party league which admitted women into its ranks. They hoped to enrol all the ladie; present that night—or those who were in sympathy with their pro- eramme. He hoped when other ladies in the Borough heard of the work the League was doing they also would enrol themselves as mem- bers (applause).—Mr. Percy Williams seconded the resolution. Mr. Isaac Edwards, in supporting, said the League would enable all liberals, young and old, to do some work for the (a. se. The Leagu" would see that those who were entitled to votes were upon the registers, and help to send to the House of Commons solid people to study the case for Wales (applause). He referred to the fact that Mr Edgar Jones had worked ex- ceedingly hard in the House since fcis election. THE CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS. Mr. Clement Edwards, who was well received, said he would like to take that opportunity of offering the electors of Merthyr his hearty con- gratulations upon the election of Mr Edgai Jones to be one of their members applause). Mr. Jones was young, brilliant, anri enthusi- astic (applause), and he trusted that his con- nection with the Borough would shed distinc- tion upon it, and that he would win the same political glory as did tho late-lamented Henry Richard (cheers). We were to-day standing on the verge of the gravest constitutional crisis that had arisen in this country since the year 168B. There had been a great conspiracy againsi dercceiacy on the part of Tariff Re- formers. In regard to financial legislation, the position h .<i been understood not during the last few yys,rs, but through the centuries; there had been no change and no question that the House of Commons was absolutely and solely supreme. During the last fifty or sixty years the House of Lords had exercised ths power of the Second Chamber, but as the caucus of the Tory Party (applause). He re- ferred to how the House of Lords had dealt with Liberal as compared with Tory Bilk For the last sixty years there had been a single f ha.r.ber Government while the Tories were in rower, and only a double chamber Govern- ment when the Liberals were in power (hear, hear). Last, year they made the gravest attack upon the prerogative of the Crown and upon tho rights of the people that had ever been attempted since James the Second had to fly from the throne. They usurped the functions, the prerogative of the Crown by seeking to determine that the dissolution of the House of Commons should tako place, in infringing the rights of the people by saying that they—the representatives of 400 families—should show how the taxes of this country should, be raised. Why was the election snatched? Why was the position rushed, and the Budget rejected? Be- cause the Tariff Reformer8 maàeup their minds that if the Budget got through it would be hopeless for Tariff Reform. People who clamoured for Tariff Reform were not old peo- ple who remembered the days of • the forties, but they were the youngsters, people who did not read and study sufficiently, and who had had no knowledge of the horrors of the dark days of protection If there was an election within the next three months what was going to be the The issue at the last election People versus Peers, but if there was to be another election it would mean that the Peers had gambled with the monarchy of the country. It would be the gravest issue that had ever been put to the electors of this coun- try—either the King woutd give the guaran- tees, in which case there would be no election, or he would deo!in« to do so, and in that event there would be an election to decide whether His Majesty was to give the guarantees or not. The King had been brought into the fight. The House of Commons was supreme in the matter of finance; the House of Com- mons declared that there should be no conflict between the non-representative and represen- tative House: that the representative House should prevail, otherwise the votes of the elec- tors were reduced to a nullity. That after- noon he visited in company with Aid. D. W. .Tones, the CyfarthfaCutle. where Merthyr's Museum was to be established. He thought it would be a good thing to put the House of J lOrds in that museum—they would earn a lot of money to make up for the loss they had caused, the Exchequer by the rejection of the Budget (loud lauehter). He appealed to the members of the Young Liberal League to re- member that there might not be peace; there might not be the solution which was hoped for within the next few weeks, and that they were fnce to face with an election. He appealed to Liberals to organise and work. and not surren- der the position that no Liberal Government f hall take office except. upon the sacred basis "r complete representative Government ichN!rn\ • waiting for Mr: Edgar Jones's arrival Abordare. Miss Maggie Jones and Mr. W. R. Edmunds delivered short addresses, as- suring the audience that the League was going to be a great force and power in the Merthyr Borough (applause). WORK IN THE COMMONS. Mr. Edgar Jones, M.P., whose arrival on the platform was the signal of a wild outburst of cheers, delivered an interesting address. He said there never was such a call for Liberalism as at the present time. There must be a gathering together of all sections of the com- munity, irrespective of private or class inter- est, or age, or anything else; a gathering to- gether of all the Liberal forces for the pur- pose of endeavouring to broaden out the in- stitutions of representative Government. They were engaged in a great conflict, and thev could not win it unless they could carryall communities along with them; they would never win in a spirit of narrowness or bicker- ing, misunderstanding or division. There must be Young Liberal Leagues composed of the young men and women (applause). There were many things that a member of Par- liament was supposed to do. It had been a great pleasure to him to discover in how many ways he could help his constituents. He had received numerous applications, and he had gone to one Minister and another in order to try and get a "leg up" for'somebody or remove a little difficulty out of the way. He was at the outset advised that while following the general camp he should also be something spe- cial. In the army there were privates, oorpor- als, and sergeants, butchers and barbers, and men of various trades. Well, he had decided to be a barber (laughter). He started by trying to shave the Secretary for the Home Depart- ment. but Mr. Churchill would not sit down to be wobbled (laughter). But he sent Mr. Master- man to be performed upon. The previous day he (Mr. Jones) interested himself in the ques- tien of Welsh speaking workshop inspectors for Wales, and received a promise that when a vacancy occurred the question would be con- sidered (applause). He had taken ftn interest in what was the crux of the whole question of unemployment—the question of boy labour in great towns. Boys were so employed that At the age of eighteen or so they were turned adrift without any calling, and- many became paupers or criminals. IF THE BUDGET IS REJECTED. He was sent to the House of Commons to help to do one great thing, to settle the ques- tion of the House of • Lords,. and to get the Budget passed. The hon. member explained at length the difficulties of the Government, and the tactics adopted to get the support of the Irish and Labour parties. The people must not expect Mr. Asquith to be able to go a straight course, as he could have done if he had had an independent majority. So the Lib- erals bad voted to keep the Government In, as he hoped they would do until they had, settled the question of the House of Lords. The Irish Party said they could not vote for the Budget Why, he (Mr. Jones) could not understand. But he supposed that the enemy had succeeded in persuading the poor farmers of Ireland that the tax would come upon them, which was totally wrong. The Budget would not put a half- penny upon agricultural land. The Government were in a desperate situation, and the great question would be settled on Monday ni#ht. The Irish Party would* have the Opportunity of vot- ing for or against the Budget; io either carry or throw it out. The Government would have no case if the Budget were defeated. They were bound to carry it before they could go to the Lords and say they had been condemned for the t.¡, unconstitutional act they committed last year, and that they demanded it should be put right for over (applause) If the Irish Party threw out the Budget it would be a great disaster to the democracy of this country. He wuold like to remind the Irish Party, and he would do so in the House of Commons if he had the oppor- tunity, that in 1884 the Welsh member? placed Welsh Disestablishment on one side to stand by Ireland (applause). They had allowed Ire- land to block the way, and he (Mr. Jones) now had the right to say, "Here is the Budget that grants two millions a year to Ireland and only. asks half a million a year for it. Here's the Budget brought forward by our distinguished countryman (cheers). Here is the measure that means life or death to the or Irish men and women in Dowlais and Welshmen through- out the whole of South Wales" (cheers). I live in hopes, continued Mr. Jones, that the disaster won't, happen. In conclusion, he said that until the great fundamental arrangement of representative Government was put beyond outrage for ever the Liberal Government were going to resist everything. He urged all Liberals to join the League, and form a solid or?ani -ntion. He would offer one word of advice—they could gain nothing by saying nasty things about their enmy (almlau). Mr. J. A. Daniel proposed, and Mr. D. C. I Harris seconded, a vote of thanks to the speak- ers Mr. Edgar Jones, who responded, pro- posed a vote of thanks to the chairman, which was seconded bv Mr F Phillips, an-l carried. Mr. Jones and Mr. Edwards also »ddres«ed • a meeting at Aberdare on Saturday. ;)1"; re- port will be found elsewhere.
Merthyr Watch Committee. DECREASE OF DRUNKENNESS. CHIEF CONSTABLES SALARY. Aid. J. Harpur presided at a meeting of the Merthyr Watch Committee on Friday. Oavld James Scourfield, of 2, Garden-street, Dowlais, was appointed a constable. The Chief Constable presented his quarterly report, which showed that during the first three months of the year 178 males and 38 females were conveyed to H.M. Prison at Swansea and one male to H.M. Prison at Car- difY. The cost of their maintenance and con- veyance after committal amounted to JB48 6s. 9d. This sum will be repaid by the Prison Commissioners to the Borough, together with a sum of £2 8s., being a Is. allowance granted to each escort by the Prison Commissioners, and which is paid to the Borough Fund. Twenty-four samples, under the Food and Drugs Act, were taken, and forw&rded to the Borough analyst; twenty-one samples he de- clared to lie genuine, and three samples of milk contained 11.8 per cent.. 10.6 per cent. and 10 6 per cent, of added water respectively. Kive barbers were proceeded against under the Shop Hours Act of 1904 (closing order); one was convicted, and four dismissed. During the quarter eleven stray dogs were seized by the police, eight were destroyed, and three sold, which realised 12s. 6d. The police attendee eight outbreaks of fire in various places throughout the Borough. The total amount oi damage done was £17, and in all cases the poliec were on the scene immediately, and succeeded in extinguishing the fires before they assumed serious dimensions. During the quarter 516 persons were proceeded against. 433 males and 83 females, as compared with 677 in the corres- ponding quarter last year; 438 were convicted and 78 dismissed. There were 75 quasi-criminal proceedings, as compared with 156 in the same three months last year, a decrease cf 81. The total number of cases of drunkenness was lb.), the offences being committed on the following days: Sundays, 21; Mondays, 23; Tuesday. 5; Wednesdays, 11: Thursdays. 7; Fridays 6; Saturdays, 80. The number in the r.orr-. v ponding quarter last year was 308., pbr.T;ng a decrease of 155 cases. During the quartr." ;>.e police made 9,869 visits to public and beer houses. The number of indictable offences were 77, as compared with 82. Aid. D. W Jones, commenting upon sta* tics of crime presented by the Chief CoRsta^'?. said that he was pleased to find that th.; ^uvr. ber of cases of drunkenness in the trough materially decreased He noticed that the po- lice llad been very vigilant in looking after pub- lic-houses. During the three months ended March they had paid 9,869 visits to public- houses, but they had felt it incumbent iioon them to tako proceedings in onjy six casM. which showed that licensed houses in the bor- ough were well conducted. However, he thought the general work of the police might be made somewhat more efficient. A number of ratepayers had told him that there was often much rowdyism in the streets, accompanied by the use of bad language a.nd stone-throwing, and that it was useless to complain to the po- lice. In the matter of the over-loading of carta going along the main streets the police might certainly exercise a little more vigi- lance, a.nd they should take steps also to pre- vent. tradesmen's* carts # being kept in the streets overnight Complaints had been made to him that the large window at the "Express" Office had been smashed three times within a short period by youths playing in the Glebe- land. The Chairman pointed out that the foot- paths in the principal streets were often block- ed by people standing on them The Chief Constable claimed that the police were exercising every possible vigilance. There was scarcely a court held without a number of cases for obstruction and using bad language being tried. He promised to submit a special report to the committee dealing with certain offences. With regard to the proposed one day's rest in seven for officers, the Chief Constable pre- sented a report shewing the number of Con- stables in the various stations throughout the borough area and also showing the force aug- mented so as to give all police officers under the rank of Inspector one day's rest in every seven days and be enabled to have the beats filled and duties performed as at present. Ten additional constables would be required at an extra cost of about :£800 per annum. A Bill was now before Parliament and which was like- ly to be passed this session, making it compul- sory for all Police Authorities to allow police officers under the rank of Inspector 52 days' leave of absence per year. The principle, he was sure, was a fair one, and would, outside the cost of increasing tne force, benefit the au- thorities by considerably reducing sickness, due very largely in police forces to continuous ex- posure to bad weather. The total amount of leave granted annually to the Borough Police was 21 days. The Police Authorities of Cardiff. Swansea.. and Newport had already adopted the weekly rest day. — The Committee, while sympathetic towards the proposal, deferred consideration of the matter until the fate of the Bill was known. The Chief Constable applied for an increase in his salary in view of the additional work in his department since his appointment, and in order to place him in a position regarding salary similar to Chief Constables of Boroughs of a similar population and status. Since hi." appointment as Chief Constable, he had been I appointed by the Board of Guardians as as- sistant relievingoffioor, and the salary of :£25 per year was paid to the Borough fund. He had been appointed agent to the Inspector of Reformatory Schools, and in that capacity had paid over to the Borough fund the sum of JC5 8s. paid to him as commission. The work under I the Local Taxation Acts had also been handed I over to the police since the l6t January, 1909, j which had involved a large amount of time and labour, and there was a substantial increase in I fees during last. year. — The matter was ad- journed for a month.
Caerphilly District Council I A meeting of the Caerphilly District Council I was held on Tuesday evening, Mr J. B. Mathew j presiding.—A. letter was read from the Caer- philly Chamber of Trade, stating that repre- sentatives had met the Council's Surveyor, and made a. selection of a quoit pitch, and that they would like to know whether the selection was approved by the Council, and whether the pitch was available for use. They also desired to know whether the Council were prepared to proceed with tie erection of a bandstand, for which a site waa reserved in the nark.—It was suggested that a better site for the bandstand could be found.—The Surveyor was instructed to report on the probable cost of the pitch.— Aocording to the Surveyor's report, some diffi- culty had been experienced in getting water I for spraying the lower part of Caerphilly. For two or three years, wat<er had been obtained from the Old/Brewery Yard, but the supply wM never plentiful, and there was still a. great difficulty in getting suiffcient water there. With ) the permission of the Water Company, he could I take from the Company's hydrants temporarily. It was, therefore, absolutely necessaty that a new stank post should be fixed in Piccaditly- square, which would enable the spray watering in the lower end.—Mr. Hub&rt JenkinS thought, that tar spraying on level roads would be a decided improvement, and that the cost would work out less than that of watering.—The D" ter was referred to the Roads Committee.
THE TORTURE OF FEAR, That haunting torture Fear which dogs the lives of many men and women is not always inborn, as is mistakenly supposed, but in nearly all sticb cases arises from an impoverished vitality. With the decrease of the vital forces, nervous control is relaxed, a.nd the victim is seized with those wild unreasoning paroxysms of panic which attack in solitude or the dead of night. One such sufferer, Mrs. Harris, describes how these fears vanish after the administration of Phosferine, which recreates the. nerve forces and enables the nerves to resume control of the system. In effect, says Mrs. Harris:—" The slightest noise terrified me making my heart! beat violently. In the night I would waken suddenly with attacks of unreasonable terror aad violent trembling, and extremely nervous. I took Phosferine, and felt better from the first, my spirits improved, and after one bottle the cure was marvellous."—" Oakleigh," 9, Cedar Rond, Tcddington
) SKATING CARNIVAL AT MERTHYR.

League of Young Liberals. INAUGURATING A BRANCH AT DOWLAIS. Our columns a fortnight ago contained a re- port of-a meeting convened in Dowlais to con- sider the forming of a branch of the League of Young Liberals, and last Wednesday evening a large gathering of Liberals, mostly young people, assembled at the Central Schools, where a conversazione was held. At the commence- ment of the proceedings Coun. Isaac Edwards; took the chair, in the absence of Aid D W. Jones, the president of the Merthyr Uniter. Boroughs Liberal Association, who was detain ?d in Merthyr. Amongst those who attondfii were a number of young Liberals from Merthyr both ladies and gentlemen—and an address nf a sprightly character was given by Miss Mag- sic Jones, the treasurer of the Merthyr branch. Resolutions were proposed, seconded, and sup- oorted, and Mr. D. Rowland Thomas, barrister- at-law '(a Merthyr boy) gave a splendid address. Before and after the* address by Mr. Thomas, who won his case at Merthyr Quarter Sessions, on Wednesday, fine solos were rendered, and the welcome announcement was made that food for the body had been laid in another room. With 700 or 800 people to cater for, the first thing that occurred to me was—"there will be ructions presently." Visitors went into the other room and found quite a battalion of cheery faces, and smartly dressed ladies ready for the crowd. The manner in which this part of the programme was carried out certainly re- flected credit on those responsible. In about half an hour the meeting was again proceeded with. A resolution respecting the veto was passed with applause. It was determined to establish a Young Liberals League, and offi- cers were chosen, the president being Mr. W. T. Williams, the treasurer Mr. D. Davies (Al- -street), and the secretary Mr. D. Price (Morlais-street) Delegates to the number of ten were chosen to attend a meeting of Young Liberals at Swansea next Saturday, and votes of thanks to all concerned brought the proceed- ings to a close. The vocalists were Miss Annie Rees, Miss M. Williams (Penywern), and Mr. Tom Phillips, and there were encores, of course. A fuller report will be made next week.

The Dark Side of Convict Life. [Being the Account of the Career of HARRY WILLIAMS, a. Merthyr Man.] CHAPTER XII. Small encouragement is given to a man, even to take his first step towards reforming, when he is treated in •such a way as already describ- ed. A convict is sent to prison to reform, but the question is, does he reform? No doubt, many of them make a daring attempt to do so. but they all fall back again into their old course, and to prove this I will just show how impossible it is and how difficult it is for a convict to make a real and true determination to amend his ways. In the year 1902 I passed a convict at Portland Prison by the name of McCarty. He was undergoing a term of four yers for no very great crime, for, according to his statement, he got it for sleeping on duty during active service at the time of the late South African War. He was next cell to me at Portland in the corrugated iron cells men- tioned in a previous chapter, and every night just about bedtime, or what is commonly call- ed in prison "turning in" time, I heard him muttering something to himself Thinking the man to be a bit weak in his intellect I decided to listen to what he was saying every night., One night I was listening when I distinctly heard the man uttering fragments of the Holy Catechisim. Then I came to the conclusion at once that he was a Roman Catholic, and that he wa.s praying to the Virgin Mary One night while I was lying down on my hammock I could hear this poor fellow engaged in deep communion with his God- When suddenly, I heard a loud rapping at his cell door, and an officer said, "I've caught you at last, I'll stop that talking for you to-morrow." "I'm not talking, sir," answered the poor chap, "I am only saying my prayers." "Saying your pray- ers, are you," said the officer, "you can say them to the Governor in the morning; per- haps he would like to bear them." Then. coming to my cell, he said, "Look here, Williams, was not that man talking to you?" "No, certainly not," I answered, "the man is talking to his God, and not to me." "Oh," says he, "you're a bit funny, too, I ,think, and I will wipe the pair of you up to- morrow." So, losing my temper, and knowing he would act in accordance with his threats, I shouted out, "If you take a liberty with me, mind, I will wipe you across the lug with the stone pick as soon as I get you out in the quarry," for I had already been punished for assaulting one of the officers for a similar lib- erty that had been taken with me before. I Said no more, so the following day I and this poor fellow were brought before the gov- ernor, and he was awarded one day bread and water, and to forfeit seven remission. "They were talking so loud," said the officer, "that one could hear them from their cells to the breakwater." Then the governor put the same matter of form to me, "What have you got to say?" I acknowledged the threats I had used, but played on the case that the officer had committed himself by threatening me and making a false accusation against me. Where- upon, the governor id. "I must believe the officer: he would not tell a lie." "No, sir," I said, "there is none of them can tell a lie." "That will do," says he, "three days bread and water, and forfeit eleven days' remission." Now this man who was reported with me was a devout Christian, for anyone could see that by the continual visits he received from the priest that it was no sham. Convicts do not sham in this matter. The day after he came off punishment, he sent for the priest, and told him of the liberty the officer had taken with him, and the onlv thing the priest said was, 'Never mind, McCarty, those who suffer unjustly in this world will be rewarded in the next." This was poor consolation for the poor fellow, who was trying hard, and God knows as hard as ever he could try, to do that which was right. It is utterly useless for a man to send for the chaplain or the priest for what is said to the doctors of divinity they will cer- tainly bring out a passage of Scripture as a means of consoling one. Still, I can iustly say ths only true and real friend is the prison chaplain, but he does not like to interfere with the discipline side of the prison, no matter how he would wish to. I can well remember a cer- tain chaplain speaking to me in confidence of what he had seen with his own eyes It was the case of a poor chap being kicked by offi- cials. "But, you know. Williams," says he, If I were to interfere I would very soon be told to mind my own business. had complaints and complaints from you men as to the way you are treated, but I never believed it until I actually saw it with my own eyes." But he went on to 6ay, "You know, I am powerless how to act." I side a great deal with prison chaplains in this matter, because I know from experience they are thorough good men. and I have even known chaplains to throw a hint or two from the pulpit, and they have put it in such words that the governor himself f could make nothing of it. It is a great Mistake for any one to believe that a man is sent to prison to reform, for is not given a chance to do so in spite of tlo, chaplains' attempts to bring him nearer God. There are officials who make it thci business by the way they beat them to mah the man a brute himself, in order to gain theii- own end.. (To be continued.) » • j
