RECOGNITION SERVICES OF THE REV. G. W. BEVANS, LATE OF NEWGALE. On Monday afternoon last, a sermon was preached in Carley Street Chapel, Leicester, by Dr T. Witton Davies (Principal of the Midland Baptist College), the occasion being the recognition of Hev. G. W. Bevans, the new pastor. In the evening a public tea was held followed by a largely.attended meeting, at which Rev. J. C. Forth, of Kirby Muxloe, presided, supported on the platform by A. H. Baynes, Esq., of the Baptist Missionary Society, Dr Davies, lievs. G. W. Bevan, Thew, and W. Evans. The Chairman in his opening remarks congratulated the congregation on not having a long dismal wait or interregum between the departure of one minister and the arrival of another, as ho understood their minds had been made up on the second Sunday after his (Mr Forth's) departure to choose Mr Bevau.—Mr Watts, secretary of the church, in the name of the deacons and church, heartily welcomed Mr Bevan into their midst.— Dr Witton Davies said he had been the new pastor's tutor in South Wales, and could speak in the highest terms of his character and abilities, and as he looked round on that thiokly populated district he could only hope that Mr Bevan would be successful in bringing the people to a knowledge of God.—Mr Bevan In responding, said he considered that the next worst thing to having hard things said against one, was to have kind things Bpoken in your behalf. The last few weeks he had spent in Leicester were the best he had spent for five or six years. Owing to his health he was not permitted to go back to his work in India. It was almost due to Dr. Baynes that he had come to Leicester. He was yery glad to come to the town, as he knew it was a place where there were strong free church principles, so dear to the heart of Welshmen, as well as deep spiritual love, and where there was such interest in foreign mission work.—Mr JSaynes briefly spoke of his high estimation of the new pastor, and said that he was the bearer of a message from the Committee of the Foreign Mission Society which expressed the love and esteem in which Mr Bevan was held. He had hoped that the doctors would have let Mr Bevan return to the mission field of India, and he should like them to know that he was held in high esteem by the Bengalese. He hoped they would rally found their pastor, support him, and pray for him.— Rev. William Evans supported, and said they had a right to expect in their pastor a manly man, a man of God, and a preacher.—Rev. J. Thew said it gave him great pleasure to mingle his congratulations with theirs. He considered Carley-street, as a church, was very fortunate in having had the services for 23 years of Mr Forth. He wished to express his best wishes for the Church under the presidency of the new minister. He considered it was incumbent on the members to support in every way the various institutions connected with the Church, and to cultivate a spirit of loyalty to the Church and minister. He gave a hearty welcome to Mr Bevan.—A vote of thanks to the speakers closed the meeting. WEDDING CARDS! WEDDING CARDS!!

Drowning Fatality at Milford. A SAD CASE. There was rough weather at Milford on Thursday night, and in the Haven there was a boisterous storm all night, which lasted until eight or nine o'clock on Friday morning. Unfortunately, we have to report one drowning case—Arthur Owens (21), of The Ropery, Hakin, who was engaged in the Pembroke Dockyard as a shipwright. Just before six o'clock in the morning deceased, in company with four other men—John James, Frederick Evans, Robert Cawsey, and Robert Taylor- started in a boat from near Pill Point to cross to the Dockyard. When they had pulled for about 200 yards an attempt was made to adjust the sail and the boat capsized. All were thrown into the water, but four were saved by holding on to the boat until another craft following in the rear rescued them from their perilous position. The body of deceased was found about twelve o'clock. Owens was much esteemed in the district, and the previous evening took part in the harvest festival service at the Calvimstic Methodist Chapel. THE INQUEST. The coroner (Mr H. J. E. Price), held his enquiry at the Heart of Oak Inn, Hakin, on Saturday afternoon. Mr David Pearce was foreman of the jury. James Alfred Owens, of Hakin, said deceased was his brother. He was 24 years of age last March. He was a shipwright in the yard at Pembroke Dock. He was in good health when witness left him about ten minutes past five on Friday morning. This was about three minutes before deceased left. He was going to his work. John James, a shipwright in the dockyard, living at St. Ann s Road, Hakin, deposed that he knew deceased well. He was brought up with him. He was in the habit of going with him to work every morning. They always went by boat unless it was blowing too hard. He met deceased at Pill Point about 20 minutes to six on Friday morning. They started between twenty and a quarter to six. Robert Taylor, Frederick Evans, and Robert Cawsey were with them. They had a boat about 22 feet long and 4 feet 8 inches wide. They had pulled off about 200 yards when the accident happened. Deceased was sitting aft. The sea was rough then, but not very rough. They hoisted the sail when they had got about 100 or 200 yards. They had not got the sail properly hoisted when the wind bowled them right over. At this time three were standing up and two sitting down. The boat was capsized completely, and all were thrown into the water. They came up once holding the boat, and deceased had hold of his arm once, but he seemed to go under the water again, and he did not see anything of deceased again. Witness held the boat until the other boat came to them. Deceased could swim a short distance, but he did not swim that morning. They were 200 to 300 yards from the shore when the accident happened. A boat called The Fox" was on the point, and had not launched until they saw the accident. He assisted in the search for deceased's body, and it was found about ten minutes to twelve in the same spot as the accident occurred. He did not think deceased got entangled in the rigging of the boat as it was all clear. He could not say how deceased lost his hold of the boat and himself. By the foreman: It was high water, and they had crossed the roughest part. There was nobody steadying the boat with the oars while the sail was being put up. Deceased was looked upon as captain of the boat at that time, and was steering. Dr. Griffith stated that he had examined the body of deceased. The eyes were discloured and contused. A part of the lower lids of the eyes were bruised, and from their appearance he should say they had been eaten by small fish. There were no marks on the head or any part of the body. From the general appearance of the body, the skin especially, he should say the cause of death must have been drowning. The Coroner said he thought the jury would have no difficulty in arriving at a verdict that death was due to drowning. The jury returned a verdict of "accidentally drowned." The Coroner remarked that they all most heartily sympathised with the bereaved mother. Dr. Griffith said it was a very sad case as the father had only been dead two years last May, and the brother four years before. A juror added that the uncle was drowned just before that, making four in the family that had been drowned in recent years. THE FUNERAL. The deceased had been for many years a member of the local Volunteer corps, the members of which at- tended the funeral on Tuesday afternoon, the band playing the Dead March on the route to Hubberston Churchyard, the place of interment. The funeral was one of the largest seen in the district for many years past.
I MR. OWEN PHILIPPS, J.P. The Syren and Shipping for September 28th, publishes a, capital full-paged portrait of this gentleman, and also gives the following letterpress I I The Chairman of the King Line is emphatically a British shipowner. A Welshman by birth, his business training was ac- quired in the highly successful schools of Newcastle and Glasgow, while Mr Philipps at present practises in London. He is a section of an old Welsh family, being a son of Canon Sir James E. Philipps, 12th Baronet of Picton, Pembrokeshire. He was initiated into the mysteries of the shipowning profession at Newcastle, from whence he migrated to Glasgow, there to take up a responsible post with one of the principal firms of ship- owners and shipbrokers doing business in the Clyde City. In 1889 he established the firm of Philipps and Co., and in the same year built the first steamer for the "King Line," which is managed by his firm, and of which he is now the chairman. At this time our Headlight" was a young man—he was born but 35 years ago, in the year 1863. Some five years after the inception of the firm a branch office was opened at 9, Gracechurch Street, London, and shortly afterwards Mr Philipps made the metropolis his headquarters. In addition to the manage- ment of the King Line," our Headlight" is interested in many other commercial enterprises identified with the shipping industry. Thus, he is a director of the London and Thames Haven Oil Wharves. Limited thp. T.rmrl™ -a.-V" Maritime Investment Company, Limited; and chairman of Thomas Headley and Co., Limited an undertaking which owns large works at Newcastle. On general shipping questions Mr Philipps is a man of decided views and large sympathies, being a member of the Executive Committee of that well-known and deserviug charity, the Royal Alfred Aged Merchant Seaman's Institution. He is an ardent advocate for the extension of the Royal Navy as the best protection for British commerce, and would cordially support a compulsory manning scale, provided that it applied to vessels of all nationalities trading to or from British ports. Our "Headlight" too, has decided views on the vexed question of depreci- ation of steamers. He asserts, and with truth, that much of the public distrust of shipping concerns as in- vestments is due to the policy under which auditors certify shipping balance-sheets as correct, although the value of steamers is quoted at cost price instead of at the reduced book-value, which should appear were a proper amount written off for depreciation. lie interests him- self in politics, and thus follows the lead of his family, for his brother represents his native county of Pembroke in the House of Commons. Our "Headlight" is an indefatigable member of the Eighty Olub, and at the last General Election contested the Montgomery Boroughs in the Liberal interest; but had, after a gallant struggle, to acknowledge defeat by the narrow adverse maj ority of 84. Since then Mr Philipps has unsuccesfully contested Darlington. In spite of these defeats, we trust that we may yet count upon him as a valuable addition to the little coterie of shipowners in the House of Commons. Our "Headlight "has yet another claim to distinction, for he stands 6ft. ains. in his socks so that, with his younger brother, Mr Laurence Philipps (of Laurence Philipps and Co., insurance brokers, Birchin Lane, and Lloyd's), who is even tlIer, he is one of the tallest men engaged in the shipping trade of London. In conclusion, we may add that the chairman of the King Line—Who, by the way, is a J.P. for the County of the City of Glasgow is a man possessed of inde- pendent views on shipping questions; and, better still, he has the courage to voice them both in shipping circles and on the political platform."
I LOCAL WEDDING. I On Saturday afternoon, at St. Peter's, Eaton-Square, London S.W., with choral service, the marriage took place of Mr Spencer Tanner Hankoy, of 28, Bramham- gardens, third son of the late Mr Frederick Alen Hankey, chairman of the Consolidated Bank, J.P., Surrey and 14. P for the North-West Division of the County of Silverlands, Ghertsey, Surrey, and Mrs Hankey, of 80 Elm Park-gardens, South Kensington, SoW., and Mrs Nina Dunning, widow of Captain Harry Gordon Dunning, D.S.O. Royal Fusiliers, and daughter of Mr T. Ince Webb-Bowen, chief-constable of Pembrokeshire,' and the neice of the Dowager-Lady Gooch, of 109 Eaton-place, S.W. The service was choral, and there were no floral decorations. The Rev. Marshall Tweddell, M.A., vicar of St Saviour's, Paddington' officiated, assistod by the Rev. R. F. Thornton, M.A., of St. Peter's. The bride was accompanied by her brother, Mr Hugh Ince Webb-Bowen, who during the singing of the nuptial hymn, "Ler,d us heavenly Father, lead us," conducted her, preceded by the surpliced choir to the chancel entrance, and there in due course gave her away. There was neither bridesmaids or pages. Mrs Dunnmg was married in a magnificent wedding- gown of mauve crepe, over mauve silk, trimmed with violet velvet, embroidered in silver, with toque to match. Her ornaments were diamonds, the gift of the bride- groom's mother and the bridegroom, and she carried a unique bridal bouquet of white orchids, lilies, gardenias, See., in foliage, tied with white satin streamers. The bridegroom, who arrived sometime previous to the bride was supported by his brother, Mr Norman F. Hankey as best man. During the service, God be merciful unto us," Lead Lindly Light, amid the encircling gloom, and on the signing of the register, Now thank we all our God" were sung by St. Peter's choir with great effect, and early in the afternoon, amid the hearty congratulations of their assembled friends, Mr and Mrs S. Taverner Hankey left en route for the Italian lakes where they will spend their honeymoon, the going away gown being of dark blue serge and hat to match. The presents, over 250, were handsome and costly, and included many valued articles from a large circle of friends and acquaintances of the contracting parties. ¡
EXTRAORDINARY ACCIDENT IN A I SHIPBUILDING YARD. SHORING BLOCKS GIVE WAY. A correspondent at West Hartlepool says that an extraordinary accident occured on Monday afternoon in Messrs. Irvine's shipbuilding yard at West Hartlepool. Whilst a large number of workmen were at work on a large steamer that is being constructed in the yard, the half finished vessel suddenly heeled over on her port side owing to the collapse of the shoring blocks that held her in position. The sudden movement of the vessel caused the utmost consternation among the workmen, but for- tunately, owing to the slowness with which she heeled over, they were all able to get clear of the ship without any casualties occuring. The damage done by the accident to the shoring blocks will probably amount to several thousands of pounds, as it is feared that it will be impossible to replace the vessel in her proper position, so that she will have to be broken up.

I FOOTBALL AT MILFORD. I OPENING THE SEASON. I The football season Association code opened at Milford on Saturday afternoon, attended by the most favourable circumstances. The weather was bright and warm, and the pleasantly-situated ground at Pill was the venue for a fairly large attendance of spectators. The teams were Milford Haven and South Wales Borderers, and it was the first match for each eleven. Milford kicked off up hill, and play from the start was fast and even. From a good run down the centre Lieutenant Crawley scored for the Borderers after fifteen minutes play. After this reverse, Milford played with more earnestness, and were decidedly unlucky in not equalising, experiencing hard lines on two or three occasions, the Borderers goal-keeper being in splendid form. Half-time arrived with the soldiers a goal in front. In the second half the home side showed to greater advantage, and proved themselves the better team all-round. After a pretty run on the left John Smith equalised for Milford. This was ten minutes after the restart. Play was hotly oontested for the remainder of the time, and the Borderers defence was sorely tried, but try as they would the home team could not get the winning point. The last five minutes was very exciting Milford forwards putting in some capital shots. The whistle blew with the score one goal each. Considering it was the first match the form shown was very credit- able, that by the Milford players especially, and there is every promise of a good season. The combination of the forwards was effective, better than could have been expected. The left wing did the most work, and in the best fashion. The players deserving mention are John Smith, Jenner Smith, and Bough. the half-backs were the weakest portion of the team their tackling was not clean, and their passes to the forwards was inaccurate. Skeen was the best back on the field, and the custodian successfully negotiate^ several difficult shots, or Milford would have been beaten. It was easy to detect that the Borderers had not got into each others stride their play being ragged and unfinished. This was however the first time this season the soldiers have played together, and their team has not yet been chosen. The defence was the best part of the eleven, BL-untuell, the left-back doing some excellent work. Smith was the pick of the halves, who however were on the whole much better than their opponents. Forward, LIeut. Curgeven and Harris shone individually, but were not well supported. The secretary of the Milford club (Mr A. J. Lewis) has been elected on the committee of the South Wales and Monmouthshire Association, Cardiff.
I WRECK IN FISHGUARD BAY. I CARDIFF-BOUND VESSEL ON THE ROCKS. I THE CREW RESCUED BY THE LIFEBOAT. On Thursday afternoon, during the heavy gale, two large steamers and a dandy arrived in Fishguard Bay for shelter. In the evening a north-easterly wind set in, which became more furious towards night. A very heavy sea commenced raging about midnight, and, with the already strong wind prevailing, the positions of the vessels in the bay became so dangerous that at two a.m. signals of distress were shown on the dandy. The coast- guard immediately responded. With all possible speed the Wigwen lifeboat was launched in a terrible sea, and proceeded to the distressed vessel. The vessel turned out to be the Albert, of Watchet, Somersetshire, bound from Belfast to Cardiff, with a cargo of burnt copper ore, and under the command of Captain John Bale. The crew, consisting of the captain and Walter Chidgey and Albert Summon, were taken aboard the lifeboat and landed at the new quay, Goodwick, leaving the vessel at anchor in the bay. The sea at the time raged mountains high, with which the ship battled until about half-past ten on Friday morning, when she parted from her anchors, and drifted on to the rocks under Penslade, Fishguard.
REDISTRIBUTION IN WALES. WELSH MEMBERS INDIGNANT. The Welsh Radical members (says the London corres- poudent of the "Western Daily Press") have heard with the utmost indignation of the intention of the Government to take four seats from the Principality, in order to add them to Lancashire and Yorkshire. Mr Lloyd-George claims that Wales is not over-represented, and he and his colleagues will resist to the death the diminution of the strength of Welsh representation in Parliament. As I have, however, pointed out in a pre- vious dispatch on the Redistribution Bill, Ministers will scarcely tackle that measure next session, and a sudden appeal to the country upon a foreign emergency may, in the language of Mr Carvell Williams, leave redistribu- tion to be baked in the Liberal oven."

Roberts and Mr J. Rees—Arthur Evans, a seaman, and a native of Hakin, was brought up in custody eharged with being drunk and disorderly at Milford on the day previous.— P.C. Morris, No 8, deposed that about 3 p.m. yesterday he was called to Mr Sellick's office to remove the prisoner, and on proceeding there he saw the accused in a state of drunkenness and heard him using profane and obscene language to Mr Sellick and his clerks. Witness requested him to leave, which he did, but in a few minutes he returned into the office and he was again called on to put him out. After getting him out the second time he went to the Police Station to report the matter to P. S. Brinn, and when returning to Hamilton Terrace, in consequence of what he heard respecting his behaviour, he arrested him ,and with the assistance of P.S. Brinn and P.C. Nicholas, locked him up.—P.S. Brinn and Mr Thomas McDonald. one of Mr Sellick's clerks, corroborated, the latter adding that after the constable had put him out twice and gone out of sight the prisoner threw a stone through the office window [stone produced] which passed through the blinds and struck the wall opposite with great force, and rebounded, and alighted on a clerk's book. Prisoner had nothing to say. Several previous convictions were proved against him, and he was committed to prison for 14 days hard labour. DELICIOUS MAZAWATTEE TEA. DELICIOUS MAZAWATTEE TEA.

A COMEDIAN ON PUBLIC TASTES. At Southwark County Court on Monday his Honour Judge Addison heard a claim brought by Messrs Mac- dermott and Rosen, music hall and dramatic agents, 1 against The Wedburus," comedians, to recover j613 commission due on re-engagements. James Wedderburn was called and asked by his Honour—What does your entertainment principally consist of ? Witness: Doing "dags" to make the people laugh. (Laughter). His Honour: That is a very important thing in this world. th Mr Lambert (defendant's counsel) Yes; the great thing in these days is to get people to laugh. mtness: At one time we did all sentimental singing, but we found there was no money in it. The money is in the laughing business. (Laughter). Our entertain- ment is a specific cure for sad heart and melancholia. (Laughter). Judgment was given for the plaintiffs for £13 and costs.

"BETWEEN YOU AND ME." Here we are again-the Portfield Fair. That annual event of mirth, jollity, and amusement is a delight to most, if not to all. We shall see varied shades of life, and divers j methods of fun and frolic at to-day's carnival, which is anticipated with no small amount of impatience as the time draws near. The fair I I is lar airterent to what it was years ago, when" hiring" was the principal business. Those staid old times have gone, and to-day, in addition to the comparatively little hiring," we have elaborate displays of the showman's power and resource. Merry-go- rounds, gay gondolas brilliant with electricity accompanying their journeys with the latest popular music discoursed by magnifi- cent organs, and innumerable other side- shows, conceived to lend zest to the diversions of a season given over to enjoyment. Hilarious it may be in some respects, but it is innocent for the most part, and marks a red-letter day in the circle of the year for many of our friends from a distance, and also ourselves. There have been many diverse opinions since a week ago on the proposed new water supply foreshadowed at the Council meeting to come from the neighbourhood of Bolton Hill, and the general disposition is to condemn the scheme without its being heard. I do not agree with this practice, but I must at the same time admit of an element of doubt as to the adequacy of the resources in that locality, and also question whether if there is such a supply that it could be brought here by gravitation. These statements are made after making a lot of enquiries from those in a position to judge. But let us withhold strictures and unkind criticisms until the promoter has told us all about the scheme, and until the Medical Officer's opinion has been heard. That special meeting must come at an early date. # oJ. Who will be the new Councillors ? That is the topic of conversation just now, and some heat is already being infused into the discussions. There is not anything ap- proaching satisfaction with the work the present Council has performed, and there are rumours of opposition in various quarters to the retiring Councillors to show that the people view with great displeasure the action of the Council on the water and other ques- tions which have caused heated debates, and which have been so often shuffled, and not diplomatically settled such as they demand. Some people go so far as to assert that a new era in municipal affairs is about to dawn, and that a laissez-faire policy no longer finds favour with the burgesses. Veritably these are cheery optimists, but no doubt a little now blood infused into the Council, and some independent expressions of opinion would do a great deal of good, and be much appre- ciated. Present members of the Council are being button-holed, questioned, and cross- questioned as regards their votes, and some of these little episodes have been decidedly interesting, not to say lively, in a few instances where the enquirer has been more irate than polite. All this tends in the right direction. & I have heard it suggested in various circles this week that a Drill Hall, or a large building which could be used for public gatherings of all kinds, ought to be erected on the Jubilee Gardens. Such a structure would undoubtedly be of the greatest service to the public and social life of the town, and would be an excellent rendezvous for shows of all kinds. The idea deserves discussion. This reminds me that we have not had a flower show for the last two years. Years ago this was a great success. Why not now ? Let a few get together, call a meeting of those interested, form a committee, and com- mence operations by holding an in-door chrysanthemum show. It is not yet too late. Neyland Parish Council are in an awkward dilemma just now. Next April they are to be blessed with Urban powers, and mean- while they want to do something which shall prove to the new body that they have been mindful of the best interests of the parish, and advanced its welfare. But they are met on every hand with the question of expense, and this they do no not want to incur. Making and improving the streets, supplying the town with gas, sewerage and water schemes, are all matters which will have to be dealt with very soon, but the Council can only contemplate them until after next April. They may also prepare and discuss these proposals, but why waste eloquence? May be many of those now on the Council will not be chosen for the new body, and it would be so much "love's labour lost." Let dis- cussion always precede reform, but why discuss in public when you are not in a position to make reform ? Mothinks the I- Councillors must possess themselves in patience for awhile, and content themselves by erecting their Cemetery Chapel, and bringing all minor matters up-to-date. My readers will be pleased to learn that actual operations have been commenced at Milford in preparation for the new Canadian line of steamers. A gang of sixty men are now at work on the Hakin side of the Docks, and their movements are keenly watched by the residents. Milford is in the van of pro- gress in shipping matters, and ere long the result will be shown in a largely increased population, and a much more pushing and thriving town. We all hope so; and what is more the public men are determined to give every encouragement to enterprise and speculation. That is as it should be. "No That was a very sad fatality at Milford on Friday morning, but it is fortunate that only one life was lost. Four other men had narrow escapes, and the lesson taught-not to hoist sails in rough weather without steadying the boat with the oars—ought to be remembered. The man Owens was much esteemed in Hakin, and also by his fellow- workmen at Pembroke Dock, and his un- timely death cast quite a gloom over the neighbourhood. The sad features of the accident are increased by the fact that four in the family have been drowned in recent years. It has been stated that the men using these boats to go to work are not so careful in mastering their crafts as they ought to be, and one gentleman resident at Hakin says it is a marvel there are not more similar fatalities. THE INVETEBATE GOSSIP. I
THE "TOY PISTOL." I "TEDDY, I WILL SHOOT YOU." I On Monday, at Westminster Police-court, Henry Green, a lad of 14, employed in a fishmonger's shop kept by his parents, at Tufton-street, Westminster, was charged with shooting his brother Edwin, aged two years, with intent to occasion him grievous bodily harm. A few days ago the prisoner bought a toy pistol and a box of small ball cartridges, which were not reaHy suitable for the weapon, but which could be forced into the barrel at the breach. On Sunday morning the sister of the accused, a girl of 12, heard the report of a pistol from a room adjacent to the one she occupied. Prisoner slept in that apartment with his infant brother, and the girl, a few moments before, had heard him say, Come here, Teddy, I will shoot you." It was not suggested that there was any malice on the part of the prisoner, who was apparently distressed when he saw that he had wounded the child, and that there was blood on his night-dress. Dr. Walter Biscombe Lilas, house surgeon at West- minster Hospital, deposed that the prisoner carried the infant there in a blanket. Accused said the injury was accidentally occasioned with a toy pistol. The wound was just over the region of the heart, and the bullet was still embedded. There were now symptoms of hemorrhage into the pleura, and it was impossible to say what the result would be. Mr Sheil regretted that these dangerous so-called toys eould be purchased by children so easily. If a heavy tax were put on such things it would be an excellent thing. He remanded the prisoner on his father's bail.

SOLDIERS' NIGHT OUT. I WINDOW-SMASHING AT PEMBROKE DOCK. Two privates in the 2nd Battalion of the South Wales Borderers, stationed at Pembroke Dock, named Henry Green and William Cooper, when out in the town between the hours of eight and nine o'clock on Monday night, broke the windows of Mr Jallett, jeweller, Diamond Street, Messrs. Eastman (Limited), and eight others, including two windows of the Sun Inn, Queen Street. The two men, it is believed, have received orders to join the draft for India in a few weeks' time. During their progress through the town they were followed by an excited crowd, whom they kept at bay with their belts. Sergeant Powell and Police-constable Treharnc, Pembroke Dock Police, apprehended the offenders, and handed them over to the military authorities.

A London Tragedy. POLICEMAN STABBED TO DEATH. The vicinity of the Kingsland-road was on Saturday night the scene of a painful tragedy. Police constabl* James Baldwin, of the G Division, was on point dnty. near the Regent's Canal, just after midnight when he heard the sounds of a loud altercation proceeding from Wilmer-gardens, a low neighbourhood, infested by a very dangerous class. Ho at once made for the spot and found a considerable crowd of more or less drunken persons engaged in angry dispute. Selecting a man j whom he took to be one of the- ringleaders in the dis- turbance, he at once pluckily attempted to arrest him. The man, a big powerfully built fellow, of over medium height, pulled out a formidable clasp knife from his pocket, and, it is said, instantly plunged it into the body of the unfortunate constable. He made several savage lunges, and when later on an examination was made of the injured man, he was found to have been badly stabbed in the chest, the abdomen and the groin-all on the left side. There was also a clean cut through the cloth of the jacket on the left arm, but apparently the blow had not sufficient force to penetrate to the flesh. There was a scene of wild excitement as the constable reeled and stumbled to the ground in a fainting con- dition. Meanwhile a couple of men of the G Division, attracted by the unusual commotion, came up at the double and arrested the man who had stabbed their comrade. The alleged murderer made a desperate attempt to escape, but it proved unavailing. He held in his hand a bloodstained knife, and endeavoured unsuccessfully to use it. In due course he was taken to the Kingsland-road Police Station, followed by a large crowd of men, women, and children. Before this the-wounded policeman had been able to make his way to Kingsland-road, where he hailed a passing cab and drove to the station. He had only arrived a few minutes when the prisoner was brought in. Baldwin at once identified the prisoner as his assailant. On being charged with attempted murder the man gave his name as John Ryan, aged 30, but refused his address. He maintained a sullen demeanour while being questioned by the Inspector on duty, and absolutely declined to make any statement. On Baldwin's arrival at the station the divisional surgeon, Dr. Oliver, was sent for. That gentleman pro- nounced the stabs to be of a most serious character. The injured constable was accordingly removed to the Metropolitan Hospital in the Kingsland-road, where his wounds were examined and dressed by the house surgeon. From the beginning his case was declared to be a hopeless one. Gradually sinking, he expired at ten o'clock on Sunday morning. He retained consciousness to the very end. After his death the prisoner was again placed in the dock, and charged on an amended indict- ment with having committed wilful murder. He again maintained silence, and refused to give his address. During the day the police were actively engaged in making inquiries as to his antecedents. Baldwin was a single man, about 28 years of age, and was much respected by his comrades of the G. Division. He had been stationed at the Kingsland-road Station for several years, and was looked upon by his superiors as a courageous and promising young officer.
THE FASTING WOMAN AT THE ROYAL AQUARIUM. FAILURE AFTER 17f DAYS. On September the loth, at 9 p.m., Madame Chris- tensen commenced at the Royal Aquarium what was intended to be a 30 days' fast. Madame had previously performed a 20 days' fast at Copenhagen, but on that occasion she partook of tea and coffee. The only thing to be taken during the 30 days' fast was to be water, hot or oold, according to the fancy of the faster. Up to six o'clock on Sunday afternoon all was apparently going on well, but then Mr M. Bernstein, the doctor who wag in attendance, retired, issuing the following statement: I am of opinion that Madame Christensen, according to the circumstances within my knowledge, cannot prolong her fast without, sooner or later, endangering her bodily, and more so her mental health, and I, after proffering her my advice, withdraw from attendance upon her while fasting." Dr. L. Francis, the other doctor in attendance, came to the conclusion that after the withdrawal of Mr Bern- steiu, he could not take upon himself the sole responsi- bility of allowing the fast to continue, although he thought the faster might go on for some days without injury, though he did not think the 30 days could be completed. His bulletin gave it as his opinion that Madame Christensen had lost strength during the last twenty-four hours to a greater degree than in any pre- vious similar period. Yesterday morning Mr Ritchie, the managing director of the Aquarium, called in Dr. Harris, of Marsham-street, in order to obtain a perfectly inlependent opinion, and it appeared to him that there was nothing apparent to cause any necessity for the Aquarium management to close the show immediately. But as a result of a consultation between Dr. Harries and Dr. Francis on Monday afternoon, Mr Bernstein's idea was agreed to, and the fast was broken. The following was the intimation posted up at the Aquarium on Monday afternoon In consequence of the withdrawal of her medical advisers, Madame Christensen partook of some extract of meat about three p.m. to-day after having totally abstained from everything but plain water since September 15th last. She is now holding receptions." A representative of The Daily Kews" C7 ,ty ed at the Aquarium at half-past eleven on Monday night to find out how Madame Christensen was progressing. Instead of the pale emaciated face he expected to see, he was surprised to find a lady by no means wanting in anima- tion, and certainly not weak to outward appearance. Unfortunately she could only speak German, so that con- versation was difficult; but she talked easily with a gentleman who appeared and who was a native of her own country. The nurse in charge was chary of giving an opinion, but said of course the doctors must know best, but——and the but said a lot. The authorities of the Aquarium seem to think that most certainly the full 30 days could have been accomplished, but in the face of the medical decision there was nothing to do but to administer food. Anyhow, it is difficult to see what good would have been done or truth established if the attempt had been successful, but if the public want to see how well a lady can look who has fasted 172 1 days, they have now an opportunity of doing so. ■
ARMY DOCTOR'S SAD END. Dr. George Danford Thomas held an iuquest on Monday afternoon at Marylobone, concerning the death of Dr. Randall Caldecott, aged 51 years, of the Indian Army Medical Service, who lived in Devonshire Street, Portland Place. He killed him. self by leaping from a third-floor window. Evidence was given to the effect that Dr. Caldecott retumedt from India in March invalided. Latterly he had:, been worried at the thought of having to give up his professional career. He had never shown any tendency to commit suicide. Dr. Bateman wrote a letter to the Coroner, in which he stated that before Dr. Caldecott died he said, I threw myself out of the window. I do not know why I did. God knows what I did it for. Ob, God I shall not be able to go to India agftiu. The Jury returned a verdict of Suicide while of unsound mind."
I SINGULAR TRAP ACCIDENT. A Coleraiue Correspondent telegraphs that a double drowning fatality of a singular character occurred on Saturday. Colonel McNeill was being driven to Bally- castle Railway Station by the coachman to Captain McNeill, J.P., of Cushendun, and when near Grange Mountain the horses became restive at encountering water on the roadway, the result of an overflow from the adjoining lake. By some means the trap was over- turned, either in the flooded part of the road or in the lake itself, and the two occupants were drowned. The only person to witness the occurrence was an old man, who held out a stick to the colonel, but the latter, weighed down by a heavy overcoat, was unable to reach the proffered help. The bodies were recovered on Saturday night.

Neyland Parish Council. The monthly meeting of this Council was held on Monday evening in the Board School, Mr Anthony James presiding. There were also present: Messrs W. Evans, Skone, E. Davies, Garrett, Allen, Llewellin, Hitchings, and Voyle. THE PATH AT SUTTON'S FIELD. J The Chairman said with regard to the Roads Com- mittee inspecting the path at the bottom of Sutton's field, they found that about a day's work by their man would clear away the sand and mud, and everything would be all right. Mr W. Evans said their man had been there and made it worse, unless he put some hard stuff there, and prevented them sinking over shoe tops into the mud. It was resolved to send the man there to do what was necessary to improve the place. THE QUESTION OF STILES. The Chairman said the Local Government Board had at last given their opinion that Parish Councils could deal with btiles in future, either renew, or repair, or alter, but in some cases they must have the consent of the landowners. THE CEMETERY LOAN. I Mr W. Davies George wrote" I am now directed on behalf of the Local Government Act Committee constituted for the County of Pembroke to consent to your Council borrowing the sum of X300 for the erection of a non-sectarian building in the Parish Cemetery." The Chairman said they had now to get the consent of the Local Government Board, then apply to the Loans Commissioners, and no doubt they would get the money. THE SUPPLY OF GAS. The Clerk announced that in reply to his letters as to what would be the price of gas per cubic foot for private consumers, and also for supplying the lamps, the Great Western Railway had written stating they were not in a position to supply gas without increasing their plant, and the directors would not do that. Another firm replied that the price would be about £2 10s per lamp. The Chairman thought they had better not touch the matter this winter until they had adopted urban powers. Mr Hitchings advocated the adoption of the acetylene gas, because it would be more economical and safe. The cost would be about £96 for twelve months. Mr Edward Davies said there was a lot of it used at Milford. Mr Hitchings urged that the Lightings and Watchings Act should be adopted by the Parish Council, and then they would be sure of getting the district lighted when the Urban District Council came into power. The Chairman pointed out that they would have to call a parish meeting, and he thought the gas question would be one of the first things the Urban Council would do. Mr Allen asked if they had received anything from the County Council with regard to the Urban powers. The Chairman and the Clerk replied in the negative. Mr Allen said there had been a great deal of neglect on their part in the matter. They were thrown back another six months, and they had to make another precept on the two parishes. The Chairman said the County Council and the Local Government Board were slow to move. On the motion of Mr Davies, seconded by the Chair- man, it was resolved to defer the supply of the gas to Neyland, as it was too late in the season. Messrs Hitchings and Evans voted against the nroDQsition. THE FINANCES. The Chairman said that was the night to make their precepts for the different amounts for the burial and general accounts. The Clerk said there was, at the end of September, a balance in the hand of the treasurer of X38 8s lid on the burial, and on the general accounts X2 6s. The Chairman thought they had better ask for L30, as any balance they might hold when they became an Urban district would be handed over to the Llanstadwell parish. He didn't think the balance would exceed X-6. On the motion of Mr Allen, seconded by Mr Llewellin, it was resolved to levy a fd rate, the chairman remarking that they desired to get their balances as close as possible. me chairman said the next thing was the- Burial Board, and they would have plenty of money without making a rate for the burial account. Mr Voyle advocated the repairing of the inside of the Cemetery walls, and also re-coping the entrance. The Chairman said they had £14 in hand, and asked what would be the probable cost. Mr Yoyle said that to do the work thoroughly it would cost £50, but he thought they might do the worst parts now. Mr Evans considered it would be better to do the work thoroughly and not piecemeal. Mr Garrett said he understood the work was to be done out of the X300 borrowed for the building of the Chapel, as there would be a balance. The Chairman said that under those circumstances it would be better for them to ask for a 3d rate which would rroduce X 18 or £ 19' and then they could repair the wall. Mr Allen supported this view. Mr Evans proposed that a M rate be made, and the work done thoroughly, and well. Mr V oyle seconded, but the resolution was lost by five votes to three. The Chairman next pointed out that if the old house was taken down they would require an entrance to the Cemetery, and a proper gate and entrance would cost about £ 50. Mr Davies proposed that a ld rate be levied. Mr Llewellin seconded. Mr Davies pointed out that the work would not be done before the next rate, but it would relieve the next rate. Mr Evans opposed the proposal because he thought it would be time enough to call for the money when it was required. Mr Yoyle expressed his agreement with this view. The Chairman pointed out that if they got a rate, they could get a chapel built, an entrance made, and the walls repaired, all at once, and that would be the most convenient method of dealing with the work. The resolution was carried, Messrs Evans and Yoyle only voting against. This was all the business.
Death of Mr Thomas Gee. j PUBLISHER, PATRIOT, AND I POLITICIAN. At 7 o'clock on Wednesday evening Mr Thomas Gee, the veteran leader of the Liberal party in Wales, died suddenly at his residence, Bronallt, Denbigh. The event has caused a feeling of sad- ness in the neighbourhood which no doubt will also be felt throughout the Principality on the news becoming known. Last week Mr Gee took a promiuent part in the temperance demonstration held in Denbigh, and presided at one of the public meetings, and he had been elected president of the North Wales Temperance Association for the ensuing year. On Monday he attended his office duties as usual and did not leave until a compar- atively late hour. On Tuesday he complained of being unwell, suffering from a bilious attack. On Wednesday, however, he was much better, and about five o'clock got out of bed and transacted some business. Shortly after six he felt ill. and in ) attempting to go up a few stairs he fell down in a fainting fit. Medical aid was at once procured, but although he rallied and spoke several times he quietly passed away at 7 o'clock, The last line he ever wrote was a direction as to how a portrait block of the late Mr Gladstone should be treated. A Welsh memoir of the deceased statesman being about to be published by Messrs Gee and Son. Mr Gee was born in 1815, and was therefore in his 84th year. He leaves a widow and eight children. THE FUNERAL. INPRESSIVE SCENES. The mortal remains of the deceased were interred in the Denbigh Town Cemetery on Monday after- noon, in the presence of thousands of mourners, amongst whom were some of the leading Welsh members of Parliament and many lights in the ranks of Nonconformity. The weather was magnificent, the fiun shining brilliantly from a clear blue sky. The main street of the old market town was thronged with persons, whose sombre attire pro- claimed the object of their visit. All places of business were closed at the request of the Mayor, and private inhabitants signified respect by drawing down their blinds. These were some of the many signs that a great man had gone to his rest. Rarely has Nonconformist Wales been so well represented. Considerably over 500 ministers and elders from local and distant parts of the Principality followed the remains of their late leader. The members of Parliament present were: Mr T. E. Ellis, the Liberal Whip, who in Capel Mawr proclaimed the deceased to be one of the greatest Welsh nationalists who ever drew breath Mr Lloyd George, Mr Herbert Lewis, Mr Brynmor-Jones, Mr Herbert Roberts, Mr S. Moss, and Mr W. Jones. Mr W. Edwards Tirebuck, the well-known novelist, was in the procesion as representative of letters. Amongst Mr Gee's colleagues on the Denbighshire County Council were Sir Watkin William Wynn and Sir Robert Egerton. The North Wales University College sent three representatives—Mr Thomas Williams Llensog, High Sheriff of Denbighshire Mr Cadwaladar Davies, and Mr J. E. Lloyd, the Registrar. Numerous associations political social, literary—which the deceased was connected, sent representatives, and the Established Church was represented by the Vicar of Denbigh and other clergymen. At the funeral service in Capel Mawr, the scene of many a striking oration from Mr Gee, penegyrics were delivered by the Revs. Hugh Jones (Birkenhead), Evan Jones (Carnarvon), Griffith Ellis (Bootle), and several members of Parliament. At the conclusion of the service a procession nearly a mile in length filed slowly out of the town in the direction of the cemetery. The route was deeply lined with spectators, and the Jailway bridge was dotted with sightseers, who reverently raised their hats as the coffin, drawn upon a trolley, passed. Some thousands assembled round the graveside, and as the coffin was lowered into the grave the scene was one of great solemnity. The service was conducted by the Revs. Francis Jones (Abergele) and W. Owen (Mold), and was brought to a conclusion by the rendering of two Welsh hymns, sung to the well-known tunes of Abergele and Moriah. The relatives of the deceased included Mr and Mrs Thomas Gee (Liverpool), Mr and Mrs Howell Gee (Denbigh), Mr and Mrs R. F. Gee (South Wales), Miss Gee, Mr and Mrs Matthews (Amlwch), Mr and Mrs Humphrey Roberts (Denbigh), Mr and Mrs Davies (Manchester), Mr and Mrs H. R. Williams (Swansea), and a number of grandchildren. At the wish of the family no flowers were sent.

BEGGING AT NINETY-SEVEN. At Bournemouth on Monday, Elizabeth Rich, who stated she was ninety-seven, was charged with begging. She was found sitting on the pavement, and people were giving her money. Defendant, who convulsed the court with her method of explanation, maintained that no one could say she was begging, but if people liked to give her money God bless I ein She was making her way to a niece at Shepton Mallet, and if she was let go free she would go "choring a bit." (Laughter). The Chairman "Touring?" Defendant: No; choriug," sir. She was discharged on promising to leave the town. —
dine with them at Picton Castle on Friday night. This is not the first time the Corpora- tion have been to the family home of the Mayoress, but it is the first occasion upon which the head of the ancient family will sit at the festive board with colleagues in municipal work. It is a fitting recognition of a useful year's work now drawing to a close, only however, so we hope, to be per- petuated by yet another, for it may be taken for granted that Sir Charles will be re-elected as chief magistrate, and we believe his Worship will accept the offer. There are certainly many reasons why the Mayoralty should be in his hands for a second year, and chief of these is the inception and successful inaugu- ration of a better water scheme for the town. There are numerous important little details in connection with the good government of the town yet to be settled in which the strength and guidance of our present Mayor would be of incalculable benefit. The invitation for him to renew his Mayoralty is unanimous both in the Council and with the general public, who ardently hope that the acceptance will be hearty and enthusiastic.
