A shocking accident happened to a girl named Clara Campbell, aged four, daughter of John Campbell, a labourer, Ashton-under-Lyne. Whilst crossing Church-street she was knocked down by A hansom cab, and one of the wheels passed over her head, inflicting injuries from which she died in the District Infirmary. A sensation was created in Chester by the arrest of Constance Phelan and her husband, residing at Upton Park, on a charge of cruelly ill-treating their two children, three and two years old. It is alleged that the paren s beat the children in a brutal manuer both prisoners were brought be- fore the magistrates and remanded. Fou imen described as Anarchists, were ar- rested causing an obstruction at Ardwick Green, Manchester, by holding an outdoor meet- ing, and were brought before the Stipendiary. They maiutaiDed a defiant attitude, and so dis- orderly were their friends that the police cleared the gaiL-ry. The prisoners were fined. DR.

It was foun afterwards that soL. person had thrown an explosive into the church and then decimped. A fire broke out in Leeds at the bedding and mattress warehouse of Messrs Langley, close to the Centra) Market, which was destroyed a week Ago. About fifteen minutes after the discovery of the* outbreak the upper story of an hotel near took fire The firemen broke in, and the inmates .c.;n. re-cued by the back door. The hotel fire was got unitr. The damage to tile mattress warehouse amounts to nearly £ 20,000. An outbreak of fire at a special iron small-pox Iiospital i t Bradford resulted in the destruction of the w ir,t in which the most dangerous cases were hcw-ed. Twenty-nine patients had to be carried out in the adjoining fields wrapp- d in blankets aud they re-mained there until a suffi- cient number of cabs could be obtained to convey them to the Fever Hospital. The extraordinary procession passed through the heart of the town. The folly of searching for an escape of g: » with a lighted taper was again illustrated at Beech road, Higher Tranmere. Mr Henderson, the oc- capa'nt ut he house, perceiving, about eight; o'clock in the evening a strong smell of gusin the front parlour, straightway went to look for it with A light. A severe explcsion was the result. Both mr and Mrs Henderson were knocked down in- jsensible, some of the furniture took fire, and the window was blown out. At Dublin Bankruptcy Court Mr Carton, Q.C., applied on behalf of Mr Michael Davitt for a cer- tificate, though the debtor had not paid ten shil- lings in the pound. Mr Davitt had been made tankrupt, because of his failure to pay the expen- ses of the North Meath election petition. Mr Carton said that t is cli nt became a candidate on the understanding that he should be free from pecuniary responsibility, and that the bankruptcy had been brought about through no act of hi3 own The case was adjourned.. The case against the Rev James Littman and Mr Alexander Zamek, money lender, for, alleged cruelty to animals, was called in Aberdeen police rt. The prosecution arose out of the slaughter of a bullock after the Hebrew manner in connec- tion with the recent celebrations in the opening of a new synagogue in the city. The accused did not appear, and they were represented by Mr W. Sim, solicitor, who requested an adjournment of the ca&e. This was agreed to and the case was accordingly adjourned until the 13th inst. Mr James Tilly, jun., solicitor, of Lancaster, lias met with a tragic death. After a chat with a chemist, of Morecambe, he rose to leave that tradesman's shop, when he fell to the floor uncon- scious. On examination it was found that. he had been shot. A bullet had entered the back of his liead, and it caused such a serious wound that he niied a few hours afterwards. A revolver was found on the shop floor, but the police have not been able to fix the blame on anyone, and at the inquest a verdict of accidental death was returned A RACE FOR LIFE is taking place in our midst -every day, and too often, alas, the result ends in death* People, as a rule, are apt to look upon some slight tilment which may overtake them with contempt, and they thus ignore the simple remedies which wbiild" speedily restore them to health. When too late they see their error, and bitterly bewail the folly which brings them to a premature grave. Holloway's Pills, if taken in Jc°«lar doses according to directions, enrich and puiily the blood. Disease is thus prevented from weakening the system, and the blessing of a sound constitution is enjoyed. At this season, when fevers, djsentery, and stomach disorders are oommou, this wonderful medicine is specially useful. The village of Urmston has been startled by a tragical occurrence. A man, described as of the labouring class, named Sidney Cookson, paid a surprise visit to his sister-in-law, a young married woman, named Mary Ann Hudson. He enquired as to the whereabouts of his wife (Mrs Hudson's aister), who had left him, and after telling him that she knew nothing of her Mrs Hudson went on preparing him something to eat. She went in- to the kitchen, and was returning into the room where Cookson was seated, when the man pulled A revolver out of bis pocket and fired in her face. She ran out of the house screaming, and he fol- lowed and fired another shot, the bullet this time striking her on the hand. Still continuing to run, Mrs Hudson reached the surgery. About JfchisTtime another report was heard, and the as- sailant was subsequently found lying in a pool of blood in the kitchen of Mrs Hudson's house, hav- Stag apparently shot himself in the mouth. The JIPA died shortly afterwards,
WALES AND WELSHMEN. I It was stated at the last meeting of the Menai Bridge Local Board that a Local Goverument Board offioer had been in the district inspecting the sanitary arrangements in view of a possible outbreak of cholera. At a meeting of the Rh) 1 Intermediate Education Committee satisfactory reports were presented respecting the progress of the arrangements for the erection of a school, under the county scheme, for that town and district. At the Bangor Police Ccurt a commercial traveller was fined 5s for having travelled on the London and North-Western Railway between Valley and Gaerwen without a ticket. In conse- quence of the police proceedings the defendant has been dismissed by his employers. A report as to the result of the official investi- gation of the accounts of the Carnarvon Corpora- tion has been presented. The non-detection of various inaccuracies is attributed to the system of electing auditors formerly in operation, and the total deficit is estimated to be more than X120. At Mold Police Court W. H. Jubb, of Sheffield, was charged with conspiring to defraud the Sandycroft Foundry and Engine Works Company i cf .£05. Jubb's elder brother was also concerned in the charge, but owing to the state of his health was unable to be present. The prisoner was remanded. Mr J. Herbert Lewis, M.P., presiding at a lecture delivered at Mold by Professor Rhys, drew attenti a to the benefits to be derived from a study oi Welsh litera'ure,exprefcse 1 satisfaction at the progress of educational reform in Wales, and advocated the establishment of a national museum and library. Mr D. A.

At tue annual meeting of the New Welsh Slate Company in iucrease in profits and output as compaiv i with last year was reported, and a divide a of 8 per cent. per annum for the half year o t cumulative shares was declared. Some discus^u took place on a suggestion to work the qu ii lies by electric power, which would consider- ably tneir producing capacity.

On Suoday evening the Tillage of Llanberis was t u ocene of afire which broke out in the business premises of Mr Hobley, and resulted in d image to property to the extent of about < £ tJ,0(X). The Cai car von fire brigade drove to Llanberis as speedily is possible, but on their arrival the flaim iii held obtained a comp ete hold of the premises and ti e i fforts of tne firemen were confined to protec iug the buildings in the immediate vicinity of the die. In this work they were successful, but Mr Hobley's establishment was completely gutted. No information has yet been ob ained as to the origin of the fire. At Uouway Police Court Evan Evans, harbour master at Conway, was convicted of illegally land- ing tobacco at Conway on September 16, fined 20s, an i or jer i to pay tiie treble value of the tobacco and the coats 1 he defendant, who is a Customs official, was discove ed by another officer to have in his pur-session one pound of tobacco on which no duty had been paid, and which, the defendant stated, had been presented to him by the captain of a steamer. The chief customs officer at Bangor was communicated with, and he offered. pending the decision of the Customs Board, to receive the treble value of the tobacco from the defe dant. The latter, however, decided to so before the Conway bench, in order, as be Eai4, to show people up," with the result stated. Mr i-t. Stanley has teen explaining to a representative of a Wt lsh newspaper his views on the depression of trade in South Walss. He suggests that Welsh capitalists should buy up th? Whole of the East Africa <Company's shares, which ajie now offered to the Government at half- price, and establish on this vast territory a market for goods inanufa-dturod in South Wales. You complain," he that trade is dull and that there is no work, "that your American trade has been ruined, that collieriel- and foundries and tin- works are shutting down, and that you anticipate g eater discontent than has yet been exhibited. Well, if South Wales wishes for a new market ahd Welshmen want work, h £ re is your chance, by which you can effect an'^itiviaediate sale of £ 1,00J,000 worth of iron rail^, i?6n bridges, and machinery, and another .£..OOà.ooo worth in steamers, barges, boats, sawmills, iron tools, and tin-plates, besides the coal that will be required. If the orders for such things were distributed over all Britain, Wales would scarcely feel the benefit accruing from them; but if they were confined to South Wales, there is not a town in this part of he Principality but would immedi- ately feel a stimulus and become more encouraged." THE CARNARVON TRAGEDY.-John Cromwell was charged at Carnarvon with having caused the death of his wife, under circumstances which have been already repeated. Cromwell and the deceased had cohabited for several years prior to marriage, after which it appeared they bad led. a very u-n- happy life. On the night of Frida^ 22nd ult., the deceased was seen to stagger af toe-.top of a flight of steps leading to the entrau17 house and to drop to the bottom. A neighbour heard her calling for help, and on proceeding to the spot saw prisoner in the act of kicking" his wife, who was endeavouring to protect her face with her hand. No one could say how many times the prisoner had kicked her previously. Later on some neighbours helped to remove her to the living room of the house. Nothing was after- wards known as to the deceased's movements, but according to the evidence of the deceased's children it appeared that when the family were in bed a noise was heard as if someone was falling downstairs trom the living room into the cellar, where the deceased was found on the follo, ino, morning. Medic 1 testimony showed that the two falls into the cellar could not have been the c i use of death, and that the wounds on the head were far more consistent with kicking. The skull had. been fractured, and the centre of one star- shaped wound showed that repeated blows had been given on the same spot. There was also a large number of impressions of a toe on t e plaster of the wall against which the deceased's head rested when she was kicked by the prisoner. The bench committed the prisoner to take his trial at the assizes on a charge of manslaughter. Intense interest was takea in the proceedings, and the court was crowded during the hearing ot the trial, which lasted several hours.
WELSH SINGERS AT CHICAGO. If Taffy was Welshman then ten to one he was a singer, a de»mu.ie citizen and altogether worthy any begr tdged marrowbone in the country Mother Goose, too, is the last myth who should take it upon herself to hand along down the ages the ungracious record of Taffy's historical beef episode. Out of the tangled legend of Wales come most of the fantastic characters which have made the revered dame famous. In fact, there are reasons to believe the kindly old lady herself belonged to the Isle of Man if not to the peninsula of double consonants. The dress with pointed cap and cape- sleeves is Welsh, the sharp chin and encouraging nose are Welsh and it is established that not to the Netherlands nor Holland not to Vienna nor Thuringen, but to Wales goes the credit of pro- ducing that flighty witch who in cheering rhymes rides over the moon on a broomstick when the nights are dark who chatters with owls and bats keeps tab on naughty boys and croons scary cantos with frog responses. Likewise does Wales own the comfortable hexe who is responsible for that alarming couplet with spidery pictorial suggestions: Old woman, old woman whither so high ? To sweep the cobwebs from the sky." Down in the most sequestered haunts of Wales are just such odd old ladies as the mother Goose witches. They still wear quaint pointed caps, carry crutches, boil aspen leaves and cultivate mysterious demeanors and,. however old, they are co bo full of alliterative melody and tuneful song. Wnat other people in quiet content modestiy cling to sacred beliefs, i ujient customs, a dead language aud any honourable flag which protects ? Tne Wales countryman is staunch, unpretend- ing, sturdy, and law-abuliug wherever he may iive. Cultivation of the arts and sweetest harmoni s, preservation of classic ceremonies, simple amusements and elevating pastimes bind tiiem ill truthful clan sympathy and they are the happiest fraction of humanity on earth. Their uuptowed language in all its rugged prim- itiveness is protected from the civilized vandals of fashion and improvement but it is enriched by reverential effort-* in folk literature and poetic contributions which are sanctified by ceremonial acceptance and honest adjudication. The Columbian Exposition is indebted to the Welsh for the first and only sensational success in music which has blazed out upon her b ighted record of harmony. The gates swung open with i1. bla.st of discordant squabbling where most exa:- ted soul was anticipated, and never until tiJe Druid chorals of these humble people rung through the festival halls and forests at mid-day did the Fair know real, earnest, beiutiful music. The ocean of song flooding these ha lowed noons when h yn ngwyneb haul llygad goleuni," the glorious bardic gorsedd filled the autumn air, shall roar harmoniously above the swimmin melodies of li other nations. The Eisteddfod created a profund impression and multitudes of Americana who had never felt urged to visit either Music or Festival hall went to hear the contests, applauded and vociferously approved of the W, Ish, their bonnie grey-eye t girls and clever boys. New South Wales since the very first of the Fair has astonished the world by its wonderful evidence of great natural resour cos, and now the old mother country, with her aggresive alphabet whetted for the occasion, her anti-conversational triads and her vocal. chords tuned to pleasantness, will in memori. s of the Fair shine out peerlessly trom oak-leaf wreathes like a forgotten priestess of neglected antiquity and present worth.-Amy Leslie in Chigago NewlI. «
ALLEGED ATTEMPTED MURDER NEAR OdWESIRY. Alexander Horatio, farmer, of the Pant, near Oswestry, and formerly an innkeeper, was charge., .vith atte mptiug to murder his wife by fehootiug at her HI Friday. According to the statement of Police Sergeant clarulet, who gave evidence to justify a fll- mand the prisoner after returning late at night from Welshpool Horse Show on Friday had a violent quar- rel with his wife at. supper, and went to bed, his wife remaining downstairs. Tne quarrel appeared to have ontiLued between them, the husband and wife shout- ing at each other. At length tte prisoner oame down stairs in hi,, siiirt with,* loaded double-barrelled gun i IC his band. Wnen the prisouer'B wife saw him she im- mediately rushed OUG of the house. The prisoner fire>t the gun twice through the window pen^trat n^ the glass. Fortunately, however, the woman was uninjured. The prisoner was of ter wards apprehended, and when charged at the police station with tue at- tempted murder of his wife, said he wished he had finished the game. The magistrate reminded thu prisoner. He applied to be admitted to bail, and upou his application being refused expressed his sur- pritle, stating tba he hd known the magistrate fur many years. The prisoner is about tUX I Y years of uge, and his wife appaieutly some years younger.
INFORMATION FOR INTENDING EMIGRANTS. IL is too late in the year f< r emigrants without inoney-other than female servants-to seek work in Canada. unless they go to join friends. Work in New South Wales, especially in towns, continues to be vp-ry scarce. In the building trade at Sydney the supply of men far exceeds the demand, and wages have been reduced iron workers, moulders, tinsmiths boilermakers, silver and ooal miners, and saw mill hands are also suffering from the depression, From February, 1892, to July, 1893, about 23.000 person:! had registered themselves as unemployed at the Government Labour Bureau, of whom over 10,000 have been sent into country districts. la Victoria good farm hands can get employment throughout the year at about 15i a week and all found but iu the towns, and especially in ilfelbourne, there is no open- ing for men without capitnl for the present time. Wages in the inter-oolonial shipping trade have been reduced X2 a month all round. In South Australia the depression has not been so great as in New South Wales and Victoria, but the bcalsupply of labour is quite sufficient to meet all demands. In Queensland there is a good demand for female servants, especially in the northern towns, and for good ploughmen at 20s to 30a a week in the fine districts round Toowoo,nb. in the south. The recent bank failures have caused general distress and many men, especially men in the building trade, are without work at Brisbane, Bun. daberg and in other towns. Th" sugar industry in the north has become decidtdly prosperous, but the local supply of labour appears to be sufficient. In Western Australia the maID feature of interest has bean the gold mining industry; several valuable fitidm have been made at Yilgarn in the south. There is an excellent opening in the south for vine growers with a little capital. In Tasmania the wages of silver miners have teen reduced 10 percent. although the demand for hands is slightly increasing, the supply on the spot is quite sufficient. The recent arrivals in New Zealand have been go numerous that there is no press- ing demand for more but the country is so full of resources, and the population is still so small, that any one arriving there with knowledge of a trade, and with a little money, should do well. So many inquiries have been received at this office for miners with res- pect to the prospects in Cape Colony and Natal in 1892, and 42,000 in Cape Colony, and coloured labour is largely employed. Openings therefore for skilled miners from this country are not very numerous. Many carpenters have recently arrived at the Cap. from Australia and elsewhere, so that any demand seams to te met. It is said that many gold miners at Johannesbuig, in the South African Republic (Trans vaal), are unable to get work, but that there are lIome openings for good drill.men, carpenter-, masons and brioklayer.-Further information can bd obtain, ed at the Emigrants' Information Office, 31, Broad- way Westminster, S.W. .&.
