Mrs. Pan khurst, as the result of her appeal against the action of the immi- gration authorities at New York, has been admitted to the United States un- conditionally. Now that so much public interest is centred in the Mediterranean it is inter- esting to recall that a Welsn apt-aiii played a part in an historical event on the Italian coast. He was Captain Wil- liam Lewis, of Portmadoc. One day in 1862, after landing his cargo at Spezia from his ship "Conifdence," he noticed a man on the quay in evident distress. "Can I have confidence in you?" he a-sked of the Welshman. "Who are you ?" re- turned the captain. "I am Garibaldi," was the startling reply. Captain Lewis bade him come aboard, for he was a patriot with a heart fully in synthy with the champion of Italian freedom. No sooner did the ship put to sea than it was pursued by an Italian cruiser. The "Confidence" tacked, and by its confident manoeuvre and the calm attitude of the captain when the ship was searched Garibaldi was not discovered under the I coil of sail that lay in the bottom of the hold. Captain Lewis would accept no | monetarv reward for his services, but Garibaldi gave him the scarf which he = wore, and the article is now a family heirloom.
