The Naronic was a splendid new cattle steamtr owned by the White Star Company, and she is supposed to have been lost at i with all hands. The owners of the fcteauier iliev that it is a hoax. At an inque st on the body of all infant, aged four months, ti e son of Malcolm Poole, a Cor- poration labourer, Manchester, the jury found that the CCll] had been accidentally suffocated in bed. It red that the father, mother, and two children eupied a bed scarcely large enough for two peop, itnd that about 18 months ago another chii č suffocated whilst in bed. John Dai ot- Ire, aged ten, was brought up at the Stockport O iiiuty Police Court charged with stealing 90 y r i ot sateen cloth, from the Hazel throve statiou. 1 he boy told the officials at the Station he hao come for a parcel left by a gentle- man whose lihe he couldn't remember." He was unsuceesci ui in his efforts to sell the cloth ana. hid it ill a ditch. He was ordered to be whipped. The Salford rough coroner, held an inquest 49& the body of Phoebe Ann Robinson, 46, wife of a labourer, liv lag a,t 1, Gibb-street James-street, Salford Deceased was a person of intemperate Jiabits. She woufc upstairs to fetch an oil lamp which needed triiuming. As she was descending the stairs, owitig to her intoxicated condition, she fell and received injuries of which she died. The jury returned a verdict of accidental death. The Crewe iieeusing justices, at their adjourned session, called before them every person who applied for the renewal of a licence with the object of finding out in what relation the applicant stood to the brewer who supplied the hoase. At the end of the sitting the Mayor announced that they had decided not to renew $he licences of ten houses. The licence in each Cam was held by a manager, who was removable at any time. An inquest was held by Mr Smelt on the body of James Barton, 62, pie-maker, who carried on business in Radnor-street, Hulme. The deceased wasdriving in a trap along Upper Jackson-street, when the animal fell, and Barton was thrown into the street. His left arm was broken, and he was taken to the Royal Infirmary, where, however, it was not considered necessary to detain him. His condition grew worse, and he died. A verdict of accidental death was returned. An inquest was held at Douglas on the body of Mobert Taggart, who was found drowned near the rocks under Douglas Head by the lighthouse keeper. The evidence showed that Taggart had been troubled about a stealing case, in which he was the prosecutor. He stated that he was tired of his life, and would do awiy with himself, Before leaving the House of Industry, of which be w s an inmate, on Saturday, he gave his insurance papers to the superintendent, telling jbim to see he had a decent funeral. The medical evidence was to the effect that death was due to drowning. A verdict of Found drowned was returned. An exciting scene was witnessed at Blackburn. A large block of tall buildings in the principal thoroughfare was surrounded by the police, while Sergeant Greenall and a constable ascended to the roof in search of an ex-convict named Diggle, belonging to Bolton. Diggle led his pursuers a long and highly hazardous pursuit over the house tops before they ran him to earth in an attic, where he had taken refuge. He had to be lowered from a window to the constables below. At the jBlackburn police court Diggle was charged with twing on premises for an unlawful purpose. He Jhad a bad record, and was sent to prison for three months. James Dorey, who murdered his family at ISTaul, and was ordered to be confined in Dundrum Lunatic Asylum, Dublin, during Her Majesty's pleasure, is said to have recently escaped, and juttle doubt is entertained that he is uow safe abroad. Certain facts transpired which have led the chief keeper at the asylum to resign, and two other officials have been dismissed by the Lord- lieutenant. 1 lie flight of Dorey was assisted by the dismissed officials. A dummy was placed in his bed to deceive a k epe'r on his nightly rounds after Dorey had escaped from the window by means of aropp. A suit of clothes was placed in an adjoining hut, and here the escaped convict clothed himself and made off. Great excitement was caused at Blackburn railway station on the arrival of the Midland train from Manchester by a report that one of the passengers had poisoned himself. A middle- aged man, apparently a collier, was found in a third class carriage in great agony and almost unconscious, while on the floor of the carriage lay a broken bottle labelled poison." From the statements of two men who travelled in the same carriage it appears that directly. after leaving Darwen the man jumped to bis feet and began raving wildly. He tore his neckerchief from his throat, and taking the bot Ie from his pocket bit the neck off with his teeth because the cork stuck,, and swallowed the contents. His fellow- panengers were greatly alarmed, and one nearly fainted with terror at the sight. > A fearful story comes from Penang, a Dutch vessel having been pirated by her Acheenese pass.ngers, who murdered the captain, two English mates, and 22 members of the crew. The cargo was left intact by the pirates, whose leader was the Acheenese supercargo on board. Seven of his accomplices went aboard at one of the ports of cl1.11 after the Customs officers had examined and left the steamer. This irregularity probably led to the disaster, which resulted in the firates securing five thousand guilders as booty. n obtaining this, however, they also killed 21 passengers and wounded 12, while 18 others who escaped in a boat were drowned by the craft ,mpsizing owing to over-crowding. Nineteen passengers and 32 of the crew were unharmed. The pirates carried off four Acheenese and five other women. "THERE'S A CHIEL AMONG YR: TAKIN' NOTES, ,AN' FAITH HE'LL PRINT 'EM," has now become a saying so familiar that no apology need be made for introducing it; especially as it is inti- mately associated with the Press, which has helped in publishing the value of Holloway's PilJs and Ointment. The chiel that had been takin' motes for the past fifty years of the cures effected by these wonderful remedies, has frequently in- formed the public that they have no equal. He ftiaa noted where they have been successful when other medicines failed, and he has been particular in stating that at this period of the year they are ^specially useful, as they cure or relieve dysentery, tfiiarrhcea, all stomach and bowel disorders, bile, øa4 indigestion.

WALES AN1) WELSHMEN. I Mr Jules Riviers, the well-known musician, was fined at Llandudno for striking a boy with a cane. The bardic chair which Dyfed won at Chicago is worth about J630, and was made by a Welsh American, Mr Isaac Davies. Mr Charles Morley, brother to the Postmaster- General, is the adopted candidate of the Brecknock Radicals at the next election. For assaulting his wife because of her refusal to return to his home and live with him, Richard Bithell, a collier, was fined a guinea at the Wrex- ham Police Court. Miss Maggie Davies, known throughtout Wales as the Little Nightingale," is the principal so- prano at the Cheltenham Musical Festival. She is a native of Wales, and very young and pretty. Toe ceremony of "christening" a new fire engine for Mold was pertormed by Mrs Phillips, of Hhual, the name given to the engine being the Duchess of York." A demonstration was held in honour of the event. The Llanrwst bench of magistrates refused an application to grant a license in respect of the Coed Celyn Mansion, Bettws-y-Coed, which had been purchased with the view of establishing an hotel at a cost of about < £ 30,000. The resolutions of some of the Welsh County Councils to suppress the use of obscene language in the public streets appears to be bearing fruit. Several persons have been proceeded against for offences of this kind at the Bangor Police Court. The Breconshire Liberal Council will meet this week to consider the question of selecting a Liberal candidate for the constituency in the place of the sitting member, who has given notice of his intention not to again offer himself for re- election. At Denbigh County Court his Honour Sir Horatio Lloyd refused an application for a new trial of the replevin action brought by Mr Thomas Gee against the Rev John Morgan, rector of Den- bigh, and decided at the April court in favour of the defendant. At the Wrexham County Court Joseph Andrews, a fitter, obtained a verdict for four guineas and costs agairst the lircilord of the King William Inn, for damages sustained in consequence of the defendant, throwing a glassful of whiskey in the plaintiff's face and injuring his eyes. A renewal of the recent out break of typhoid fever at Bagillt is reported to have taken place. Twelve new cases were notified during last week bringing the total number up to 68. On Monday one of the patients died, and others are stated to be in a critical condition. The epidemic is attributed to the impurity of a local stream. At Pontblyddyn, a hamlet near Leeswood, the dead body of Edwin Trevor, a collier, 46 years of age, was found lying on the ground face down- war s near a railway bridge. On the back of the head was a severe wound from which blood was flowing. The police theory is that the deceased must have fallen in the dark from the railway bridge. At Ruthin County Court Sir Horatio Lloyd pointed out the right which Welsh witnesses possess of giving evidence in the language they understand best. While it was contrary to law to conduct the proceedings wholly in the Welsh language, there was no difficulty in the way of any witness speaking in Welsh and having the evidence interpreted. The vicar of Llanrbaiadr sued Ishmael Jones at Denbigh for 4s, being the amount of tithe due to him. The defendant filed an amusing counter claim against the plaintiff on the ground that although he received the tithe he had shown no interest in the spiritual welfare of the defend- ant. The judge described this document as rubbish," and found in favour of the plaintiff. The Rhyl Improvement Commissioners, who have for some time been exhibiting much public spirit, unanimously adopted recommendations in favour of carrying out complete works of sewer- age and drainage for the town, and of forming a pleasure lake for the use of the public. The sew- erage scheme will entail an expenditure of 215,000, and the construction of the lake is expec- ted to cost £ 4,000. The Corporation of Aberystwyth, finding that the work or providing that town with a proper source of electricity for lighting and other pur- poses required more technical knowledge than the members possessed, have decided to dispose of their powers under a provisional order which was recently obtained to a private company, which has undertaken to provide the apparatus for light- ing the town before next season. A daring but unsuccessful attempt to rob the cash till at Llandudno railway station took place last week. The burglars, it is supposed, lifted a boy through a skylight into the office, and he then opened the door from the inside. The money drawer in the excursion ticket department was broken open, but fortunately no cash had been left in it. A safe close by, containing £ 200, seems to have escaped the notice of the intend- ing thieves. Sir George Osborne Morgan, M.P., speaking the other day at the laying of a foundation-stone of a I new board school, at Glyn Ceiriog, Denbighshire, said he utterly denied that it was the province of the State to propagate or maintain doctrinal I instruction. He would as soon think of entrusting the education of his countrymen to the Emperor: of China, or the Grand Llama of Thibet, as of handing it over to the tender mercies of their Lordships of Chester and St. Asapb. The recent appeal for funds to carry on the Welsh Disestablishment campaign has, it is re- po ted, not met with so liberal a response as the members of the Campaign Committee had hoped. The Committee has arranged a large number of meetings in English centres, with the rpecial object of instructing the English electorate as to religious condition of the Principality. These gatherings have been extremely successful, and the demand from England for Welsh speakers on the Disestablishment question is rapidly growing. Unless, however, additional funds come in, the Committee will be compelled to restrict its opera- ti ns. Sir George Osborne Morgan, M.P., last week addressed a meeting of Liberals held at Shrews- bury. He referred at length to the House of Lords and advocated its abolition. Amongst the measures for the autumn session, he mentioned the Employers' Liability Bill and the Parish Councils Bill; and said he agreed with Mr Asquith's statement that the latter was the first step towards the Disestablishment of the Church of England. As to Welsh Disestablishment, they would have to be patient, but the Liberal party, after the pledges they had given, would be unworthy of their position if they did not press the question forward as speedily as possible. A special meeting of the Denbigh-hire County Council was held at Wrexham, Mr Samuel Moss presiding. There was a large attendance, and resolutions were passed expressing sympathy with the family of the late Mr John Thomas, in favour of the annual revision court being held at Colwyn Bay, calling the attention of the coroners in the county to the need of conducting inquiries in a language with which all the jurymen are conver- sant, regretting that certain information for which application was made to the Woods and Forests Commissioners had not been supplied, advising that purchasers of all beer which con- tain-d ingredients used in substitution of malt and hops should be informed of the fact, protest- ing against the maintenance of urban footpaths out of the county rate, advocating the passing of a Land Bill for Wales providing for fixity of tenure, fair rent, destruction of game, compensa- tion for improvements, and the formation of a land court, advising that County Councils should be empowered in cases of default by local authori- ties to enforce the statutory provisions for the preservation of the public health, and expressing regret that certain recommendations of the Intel- mediate Education i omwittee for the county had not been adopted by the Charity Commissioners.

IN PARLIAMENT. I MONDAY. In the House of Commons, Mr Naoroji gave notice that he intended to move for the appoint- ment of, a Royal Commission to inquire, into the civil and military administration of India. Reply- ing to a question, Sir E. Grey said there were two and would soon be three British warships in Rio harbour for the protection of our subjects and pro- perty. Trade was paralised owing to the revolt, and merchants would do well to remember that they sent goods at a great risk. The neutral ships would endeavour to prevent the bombard- ment of the town by the insurgent vessels. The House then went into Committee of Supply. Dis- cussion followed on the cost of our embassies and their help to trade, and also on the attitude of the Government towards Uganda. With regard to the latter question, Sir Edward Grey said nothing would be decided till the autumn session-till the subject had been considered by the House. TUE3DAY. In the House of Commr ns Mr Fowler gave gratifying assurances as to the decrease of cholera. Mr Asquith stated, in reference to the recent dis- turbance in the mining district of Featherstone, that the question whether there should be any further was seriously engaging his attention. Questioned with regard to the threatened block- ade of Rio, Sir E. Grey said steps had been taken to protect British subjects and interests there. Report of Supply was then considered. Discus- sion followed with regard to our policy towards Mashonaland, and also on naval armaments. Exception was taken to the purchase of shells from foreign firms but Sir U. Kay-Shuttleworth said the Government had a right to go to the cheapest market, and in this purchase were mak- ing no new departure. On the report of the vote for the Admiralty, Mr A. Morton moved to omit the sum of £ 700, the salary of Prince Louis of Battenberg as naval adviser to the Inspector Gen- eral of Fortifications, but the amendment was neg- atived. The Post-office service and the action of the Government in relation to telephonic com- munication were commented upon. Many votes of supply were agreed to or carried on a division, and the House adjourned at eleven o'clock. The House of L(rds advanced several bills. The Light Railways (Ireland) Bill passed through all its stages, and the Savings Bank Bill was read a first time. WFDNESDAY. In the House of Commons, on the motion for the second reading of the Appropriation Bill, Mr James Lowther called attention to the recent dis-1 turbances in the mining districts of Yorkshire, and said it was incredible that such law-essuess should have been permitted. Mr Asquith again explained that it was the duty of the local authorities to put down disorder. He might advise them in an emergency, but they were at liberty to Accept or r ject his advice. A grave state of things had existed in the West Riding, but he was bound to say that the riotous proceed- ings that went on for some days, the wrecking of collieries and the burning of buildings, met with no sympathy from the men on strike. Certainly the Labour members had denounced him and cir- culated pitiful and ridiculous fiction against the Government, to the effect that they had deliber ately sent the forces of the Crown to take the side of the masters and crush the men, but where were the members who had made those charges ? Why were they nob in their places in the House, face to face with the Minister they had condemned and ready to fight the matter out. He thought it a most creditable circumstance that in the whole county of Lancaster, where a large number of miners had been out there had not been a single case of outrage or disturbance and he attributed this peaceful stite of things very largely to the restraining influence exercised by miners' leaders and organisations, for they had kept the men within the bounds of moderation and good sense. He promised an inquiry into the Featherstone disturbance, and appealed to the leaders of the men to put an end to the deplorable dispute in the coal industry. After some discussion of the foreign policy of the Government the Appropria- tion Bill was read a second time. The deb i te on the motion to go into Committee on the Indian Budget was interrupted by the half-past five o'clock rule, and the House adjourned. THURSDAY. Questions were asked in the House of Com- mons chiefly with regard to land purchase in Ireland and the situation in Mashonaland. Mr Buxton said the Government policy towards the latter country had been neither uncertain nor variable. Any grave disturbance in Mashonaland would certainly involve the peace of Bechuana- land and have far-reaching results in South Africa. The Government were therefore bound to take care that a war with Lobengula was not lightly entered into. But the British South African Company had entire freedom to take measures for resisting any attack by the Ma a- beles. It was decided that the House should meet on Friday and adjourn till November 2. The Appropriation Bill passed through Com- mittee. On the motion to go into Committee on the Indian Budget the condition of the people of India was discussed. Mr G. W. Russell said the Government were quite willing to inquire by the means at their disposal into any grievance, but they could not consent to the appointment of a Royal Commission as suggested by Mr Naoroji, for it would be a vast undertaking and could have no practical result. Sir W. Harcourt said the Government in opposing the proposal for a Com- mission e4id not take up the position that there was nothing to improve and nothing to reform in Indian administration. Such an inquiry, if made at all, should be ma.de by the responsible Govern- ment of the Crown. FRIDAY. In the House of Commons the Appropriation Bill was read a third time and the report of the Indian Budget agreed to. The House then ad- journed till the autumn session, which begins on November 2. In the House of Lords the Merchant Shipping Bill was committed to a joint committee of both Houses. The Appropriation Bill passed through all ts stages, and the Royal assent was given by Commission to a number of bills. Their lordships adjourned till November 9.
A REMARKABLE FEAT OF STRENGTH.
A REMARKABLE FEAT OF STRENGTH. The other day at Hes-de Common a lady and gentleman were driving in the direction of Hull in a dog-cari, when their horse took fright through the gudden noise made by some children beating some old tin pans in an adjoining field. It was stopped by a young man. But, in doing so, he nearly lost his life. The horse dragzed him some ten yards or more in the tray. On the horae becoming restless again, a child that was close to it was knocked down, and had it not been for the prompt attitude of the young man in question, it would undoubtedly have been run over He deliberately made a grip of the wheel of the cart, which most decidedly must have passed over it, and, with his whole strength, lif'ed the cart and its occupants clear of the child, which was quickly clasped by its anxious mother. The young man in question, after a brush and wash, and refreshments, set off home, apparently none the worse, but not before he received the congratulations of all who witnessed his daring deed, besides being compensated by the occupants of the cart.
♦ —- Webbs' Catalogue of selected Seed Corn for 1894 is now ready, and contains some excellent illustrations of the products of their celebrated seeds. The continued success of their new and improved wheats, barley and oats in the principal open competitions, together with the large num- ber of the reports they have read from eminent agriculturists, speaking in the highest terms of their varieties, testify to their superiority over other kinds. Their new wheats White Queen and "Windsor Forest" continue to give the ut- most satisfaction, and are undoubtedly the best sort to grow. In the catalogue are testimonials from all parts of the world, testifying to the ex- cellent quality of the seed. They have, in view of the present unsatisfactory condition of the wheat market, and the depression in agriculture gener- ally reduced their prices, and as their seed corn ally reduced their prices, and as their seed corn is undoubtedly the best, their sowing will prore more economical than any others.
A SNUB TO ANGLICANS.
A SNUB TO ANGLICANS. We have been requested by an esteemed corres- pondent to reproduce the following article, which appeared in the Daily News i-Cardinal Vaughan has dealt the Anglicans a heavy blow by denying, in toto, the validity of their orders. The occasion of it is an editorial statement in The Church Review to the effect that the Cardinal had al- luded to Anglican clergymen as "priests." The matter was brought under the Cardinal's notice with a request for information as to his having thus acknowledged the validity of Anglican orders." Anglicans must have awaited the answer with a trembling hope. Roman Catholic orders are recognised in their Church. A Catholic priest, who wishes to enter the priesthood of the Anglican communion, enters without re-ordina- tion. Was Rome about to return the compliment after her long persistence in regarding the Angli- can person as merely a good layman who had gone wrong ? The answer came quickly, and therefore mercifully, as beseemed its tenour, for it was a sentence of doom. There is no validity in Angli- can orders. The Cardinal has no recollection of having referred to the Anglican clergy as prie-ts. If he ever did so, it was a mere slip of the tongue. He has the kindliest feeling towards them, and other heretics-the term of course is not his-but that is a very different matter. The sentiments of charity and sincere respect which we feel for the many zealous and estimable men who labour in the ministry of the Anglican and Dissenting bodies are, happily, a matter altogether indepen- dent of any recognition of canonical status. Upon the latter subject, the mind and attitude of the Catholic Church was abundantly clear." Of the 1,200 bishops who form the Roman Episcopate, the Cardinal does not know even one U who would admit for a moment the validity of Anglican orders." On this point, he says, the Catholic Church has pronounced by her deeds, even more emphatically than by her words. She has never admitted pn Anglican clergymen to the priestly office, without giving him most plainly to under- stand, by the very ceremony itself, that she does not recognise in the Anglican body the posses- sion of Apostolical succession, or a valid priest- hood." it is a heavy stroke, especially in the coupling of Anglican with Dissenter, as a brace ol wild men whom no orthodox priest can be ex- pected to admit to his fellowship. Alt ough Dr. Vaughan denies orders to bis erring brethren, he does not d» ny them the hope of a better world. His illustrious predecessor in the See of Westmin- ster expressly allowed it. In a famous controver- sy with Dr. Pusbey, he laid down the comforting doctrine that a man is not to be held penally re- sponsible through eternity for failing to be a Catholic when he can show that it was not hit own fault. Here, surely, should be all that the Anglicans can really want. They may plead that they are what is called inculpably non-Apostolic. When they feel sure of the immunities derived from such a declaration, they can afford to regard the rest as of no account. It is about of a plec. with their denial of the term Reverend to their own Dissenting brethren. Who need care ? We are not at all sure that they stop short at that denial, or that they are anything like so Liberal in regard to future arrangements as the Cathi lies are to them. This should be enough. If it is not, the wild justice of revenge is not altogether denied to the offended communion. The Angii. cans may still persist in patronising the Roman Catholics as but a new set of modern dissidents under an old name. For purposes cf controversy the Anglican can be as unctuous as the Cardinal, and can give wound tor wound by assuring the Catholics of Rome that they are not such bad fel- lows after all. This used to be his favourite attitude. He could talk of himself as a terrestrial ancient of days, and regret the rage for innovation which led, not to his separation from Rome, but to Rome's from him. Anglicans take their priestly position very seri usly. They have shown it in many a cruel disability inflicted on men who like to think that religious ministrants, like re- ligion itself, are not exactly things made with hands. For them to be without a valid ordination is to be without everything. They must r so- lutely continue to pity Cardinal Vaughan until he the error of his ways.
» THE CHURCH IN EAST LONDON.
» THE CHURCH IN EAST LONDON. BY THE REV. CANON S. A. BARNETT. Why does the Church fail in East Loudon P It is not a sufficient answer to say that the religious sense is everywhere weak, that few preachers have now a gospel which they burn to deliver, and the people few intereats beyond their own and their neighbours' comfort. And it would not be a suf- ficient remedy if every clergyman became a social reformer, and every church a centre of activity for the relief and entertainment of the poor. u Why does it fail ? Because the most common answer is—"of its wealth." Working people whose daily concern is with pence are apt to ask of everything. What does it cost ? and their judgment of the Church is at once affected when they hear of its big incomes and its palaces. They judge the Church as they would judge a de- partment of State or their own trade union, by its management of its money, and they condemn it. It is hard for rich societies as it is for rich indi- viduals to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, and it is the wealth of the Church which does mua, to pre- vent it from entering into its kingdom in East London. It is hard, but it is not impossible, and the wealth of the Church rightly used might be a help rather than a hindrance to its success. No one will say that the wealth is now rightly used. If its property is the property of God the trustees have betrayed the trust. The next cause of failure most often suggested is the form of service. The people of East Londoa do not like what they do not understand-they do not like ritual. A few-and a few may be many enough to fill large churches-do like the discip- line. the glow of colour, and the dim religious at- mosphere, but East Londoners like direct speech and simple, reasonable service. Deeds, not words —reforms, not Albert Hall meetings—are neces- sary if the Establishment is to be secured. Es- tablishments have been condemned because they rest on the crumbling soil of national life. Let the direction of Church wealth and the Church forms respond to the popular will, as the direction of State wealth and S ate forms has responded and instead of the tolerance which will permit the withdrawal of money and buildings to sec- tarian purposes, there will be defence of national property for national uses. Let the clergy be dis- established, and be made to submit as other feudal authorities have been made to submit; and in- stead of the acquiescence which will permit Church resources to be used for secular purposes. the people will require that funds set apart for the development of their religious life be preserved to its old uses. It ought not to be that good citizens and honest men, that they who are taking part in political and social movements, should be able to think that the Church does not speak their lang- uage. It ought not to be that the English Church should be a tolerated foreigner in the midst of English people. The last cause of failure to be mentioned is the non-democratic character of the Church. The people are not drawn to a Church where every- thing is controlled by the dead hand of the past or, by that of a parson, in whose appointment the' people have had no part. They see that the hours of service, the expenditure of the offertories the administration of the parish are all arranged apart from popular control, and they conclude that the Church is not for them. Their interest is not evoked as it would be evoked if they were called on to take a responsible part in its manage- ment. They accept what the Church offers in treats and in services for the children, but for themselves they pass it with indifference. These causes together operate to make the Church fail to hold people toge her or to raise their aspira- tions.
