I Occasional Notes J [By Arthur Mee.] .I DOWN TOOLS. 1 Down tools"—011 which the Germans t were relying to help them-has been ef- fectively knocked on the head. The miners in the South Wales coalfield have proved themselves as patriotic as I al- Ill.w,aya felt them to be, and have shaken themselves free of a most impudent, malignant and traitorous influence. At the same time the numbers in the minority show that there is something rotten in our midst-something anti- British—something that ought to be put up against a wall and shot. KNAVES AND FOOLS. I Down tools rhymes with D. fools, and this no doubt the bulk of those who voted for it are. The rest are knaves, arrant knaves on whom the honest patriotic majority would do well to keep a watch- ful eye. "They may be in German pay, or not, but they are enemies. 61 their fellow workmen, of their fellow-countrymen, and of all who love the "great cause of Justice and Liberty for mankind. I BUCK UP: I I These down-toolers are of the class who go round whispering that all is up and that everything, is going to the dogs and to the devil. And there are people silly enough to believe them and to pass the I tremour on. To all who read these lines II I say: Buck up Be as cheerful as the I Juen at the front are All you have to I do is to hold on. Just a little longer and I the war will be won, and. then you may ) be as glum and downhearted as you like .TH E KAISER'S 7MOM. Kaiser Wilhelm is the man who ought tto be down in the mouth if he has read -all the predictions and prophecies con- cerning him. One is quoted in "Cham- ber Journal" this month. It is said to \be over 300 year old, but I doubt it. There ^ire;inany more however of the same kind, -anti you will find them dealt with month- ly in the "Occult Review." Naturally tliwse with an astrological basis arc the on-as that interest me most, and it is wonderful how unanimous they are in predicting a bad end for the Butcher of Berlin. AN AMERICAN FORECAST, In 'his very readable book "The Elements of Astrology," written 25 years ago, tlie 'late L. D. Broughton gives a study of the Kaiser, which will be found on page 875. Broughton says the Kaiser's nativity is rather fortunate for marriage, Hut unfortunate for money matters. He "will not be eble to keep out of war any more than his grandfather," but (unlike j his grandfather) he "will be unse.ccessiid ia war and w'iil have to pay indemnities. There is much danger that the 1 Emperor will not live over 1897, but if lie does he is likely to meet with disgrace similar to that of Napoleon (at the battle 6f Sedan). This horoscope is quite the reverse of that of Jay Gould.- He began with nothing and died worth seventy-two millions, whereas the Emperor of Ger- many will either die poor or the nation will be heavily in debt at his death." MORE CLOOM FOR WILLIAM. Mere is another judgment nearly as old. In Mr. W. T. Stead's magazine "Border- ) land," for 1894, the late George Wilde published an astrological delineation of the Kaiser, declaring that that monarch weuld "rush into war" and be faced with "pecuniary difficulty and national debt. Mr Wilde also said that 1916 would be a very fateful year for the Emperor. "Sepharial," writing about 15 years ago saM that under William's rule Germany would pass through vicissitudes of which RP t& now it had not had a shadow of an experience, and that finally the HUT) empire would be broken up amongst various powers who had come down in wrath upon the Fatherland. Well, strong as Germany still is (or sepms to bQ), events cre still moving in that direc- tion; and rr*n-'A merica has got te to-iug HETl mailed fist down yet. tie buck up. The end is nearer than many of us suppose. J

Rees represented David Thomas, • Grovesend, who appealed for his son, John Thomas (-26).. Mr. Rees said the father was bedridden and the whole farm had to be worked by the wife and son. Lieut. Ingrams: Is this tlie c.Ise of .a whole time bad J Mr. Rees: Yes. Lieut. Ingrams; Then it should be re- ferred to the agricultural committee. Mr. A. A. Lewis: How many -sons are there ? Mr. Rees: Three, one is a collier and another has a farm of his own, while the other is at home with his parents.. The Clerk pointed out that the farm in question was in the Glamorgan dis- trict, and the case was referred to the Swansea Tribunal. Tinplate Clerk. I 'tmplate Clerk. j The St. David's Tinplate Co. appealed I for Brinley Jno. Davies, aged 21, who had been passed Class A. Replying to Mr. F. N. Powell, who re- presented the firm, Davies said he had been in the Company's employ for seven years and was now entrusted with the wages account, Government and Income tax returns. With sufficient training a girl could do the work, but it took three years to train him for it. He was the only man that the Company had ever ap- pealed for. Lieut. Ingrams: Did you have a Pro- tection card ? Davies: Yes. Lieut. Ingrams: Has it been with- drawn?—No. Lieut. Ingrams: Then why are you ap- pealing ? Mr. Powell: It is your appeal. It transpired that the Protection card had been cancelled, a calling up notice having been received. Lieut. Ingra: This man cannot ap- peal here on occupational grounds as his Protection card has been cancelled. He is out of Court now unless he has ap- pealed on domestic grounds. The Clerk (Mr. J. H. Blake) That is the position, and I suggest that the ap- peal be referred to the Ministry of Muni- tions Compiittee. The case was adjourned for this pur- pose. "No Serisus Hardship." i A haulier named David John Stephens I | said he had been classed C 1. I Mfr. J. Lewis Phillips who represented the man, said his client was the sole sup- port of his parents. His father was one j i(H» >w£ ? 'd and also suffered from rheumatism The feoii was only in C 1, and was em- ployed at a colliery. I Lieut. Ingrams: There would bo no I serious hardship as the parents would re- ceive the Army allowance. Mr. A. A. Lewis: When did the son return to the colliery Stephens: In 1915. Lieut. Ingrams: That was sifter the be- ginning of the war. Conditional exemption was allowed on domestic grounds, but Lieut. Ingrams gave notice of appeal. "Somebody must do it." Jamas J efikiI54 Trinity road, was ap- pealed for by the Felinfoel Brewery Co., and stated that he was in Grade 3. Mr. Richard Jones, manager, said the maJl. was in charge of the wines and spirits department. Lieut. Ingrams: But that is not work of national importance. The Chairman: Still I suppose some- I body must do it (laughter). Exemption was granted on condition that Jenkins joined the Volunteer Batt. Must join the volunteers.

I Augustus Matthews, a married man residing at Llwynhendy, in appealing said he was a fireman employed in -the Steelworks.. Lieut. Ingrams: I don't quite under- stand this man's legal position. The man is mClass W. and therefore the appeal is not strictly in order, but I suggest that you deal with his ease on domestic grounds.. Replying to the Ch airman, Matthews said he had been classified A in January last, but he suffered from muscular rheumatism. Lieut. Ingrams: It is only museuhir rheumatism. He gives as a reason for this that he goes from extreme heat to the cold. If he joins the Army I can assure him it will be mostly cold. I press for this man as you haven't given me a soldier this afternoon yet. Dismissed subject to a re-examination' before posting. Appeal Dismissed. I I Albert E. Killick, employed at the Steelworks, appealed for a re-oxamissi- tion. He had been classified Class A, and was a married man with one ehild. Lieut.

Mr. Lewis: Any of them in the Army or Navy ?-Xa. Appeal dismissed. That morning cough. I "I have no sympathy with boys of 18 who don't want to go to the Army.
