THE WAR CLOUD IN THE I FAR EAST. A telegram from St. Petersburg states that the report of hostilities is emphatically con- tradicted. In local political circles any likelihood of a. conflict between Russia and Japan is now looked upon as at an end. A Washington correspondent learns from "a, man of the highest standing, whose sources of knowledge are second to none," that Russia has come to the conclusion that the Manchxtrian venture is an unprofitable enterprise, and would involve an enormous drain on her resources. The informant believes that Russia and Japan will reach a temporary tritoe. No reply has b&en received, says a Yoko- hama telegram, from St. Petersburg to the Japanese proposale for a settlement of the Manchurian difficulty. The delay in the negotiations is. embarrawing Japanese foreign trade and causing much. popular im- patience here, as shown by the recent public meetings at Tokio, Yokohama, Mid Osaka to protest against the Government^ inactivity. One popular Tokio journal has been twice officially suspended for publishing verses in- directly suggesting the assassination of the Ministers. It is also feared that the papular feeling will manifest itself on December 5, when the Diet meets, unless some decided development in the negotia- tions becomes known in the meantime. The Ministers, however, remain reticent, pro- fessing to be confident of their ability to control the situation.—Press Association Foreign Special.

It is said by experts that, owing to the way I fin which women treat their hair, the hair line of the average woman is retreating f-om 1 the forehead slowly, but surely. The Italian beauties of the pre-Raphaelite period used to shave the front part of the head arvj strain back the hair tightly from the rexpalnder. It daes not look pretty to us nowaday, but, as Jack Point said, "use is everything, and we should get used to it in time." Many a child's character is unintentionally spoilt by an injudicious fondness f#ir dressy clothes and smart garments, and in moat cases it is entirely th;a mother's fuIt. No elothrng can be too dainty and pretty for children; but to tell the child. so is to make a Tain child when there is not the slightest seed. Children's clothes should always be made with a view to the wearer's comfort as well as beauty, and-, w-nst be made loose enough to allow fnll' play to growing chil- dren.

A Hint to Housekeepers. I Many housekeepers constantly speak of I "teaching a maid," when they might with advantage allow the maid to teach them. As e. rule the housekeeper has lived in bat two houses, conducted much upon the iSame lines -her own and her mother's. The maid has seen the innermost working 0f many households. Sometimes site has seen better economy, better cooking., more thorough cleaning. Accept. a new idea; from her now and tben, and gratify her by saying: "I am so pleased Mm. So-and-So taught you thie—it is a great help to me." If. on the contrary, you neTer allow her to Hn what she aoquired in former situations, YOrQ make her whole past life and experience of no aecoont, something to forget and regret. Vahie of Separations in Marriage I Tens of thousands of conscientious taarried people deem it their duty to loee no opportu- nity of being together. In this particular, women, no doubt from a high motive, display the least sense; and men, no doubt from a low and selfish motive, display the nabst. When the holiday season cornea rotindp I always wonder and feel sad at the vast spectacle of husbamii# and wives who have been locked in a coloee familiarity for eleven months of the year taking elaborate measure to be locked in a close familfarity also for the twelfth. They go away for "change." Only, "the more that changes, the more it is the same thing." Have yon not noticed, any of you married men and womsn who secretly repine because life is not a Jove, poem by Algernon Charles Swinburne. have you not noticed the zeat which vitalises the house- hold existence after even a br\ef separation? And has it not occurred to you that it would be desirable to reproduce this zejjt, this vivify- ing moral fluid, this mot-h-destroyer and general sweetener, a little oftenojr? As a matter of fact, the desire of the wife to be where the husband is, and (less often) the desire of the husband to be where th*> wife is -a desire which in the beginning was a per- fectly sane and proper instinct of love, or what passes for love—becomes in the latter years nothing but a habit, a tiresome mania, a morbid insistence on one's rights, I will not say crudely (remarks "T.P.'s Weekly") that absence makes the heart grow fonder, but I will certainly say that the absence of absence is usnally fatal to fondness.

SERIOUS AFFRAY AT ABERDARE, At Aberdare Police-court on Tuesday (before Mr. T. Marchant Williams, stipendiary magis- trate Dr. David Da,vies. Dr. Evan Jones, and Messrs. D. P. Davies and W. H. Jones). Thomas J. Evans, Cwmbach, was brought up in cus- tody charged with wounding William Jones, breakdriver. of the same village. Mr. Willie Thomas, solicitor, appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. W. Kenshole de- fen,.&(i. .iachariah Davies, colliery rider, deposed that he was married to prisoner's daughter, I and lived in Canal Cottages, Cwmbach. On the lath of last October he. the prisoner, and another man were returning from Aber- dare. Evans got into a break, which was driven by the prosecutor. It was about eieven o'clock at night- Jones got on the 'bottom step at the back of the break, and asked prisoner for some money, which he owed him. Eva., replied that he did not "owe him any- thing. Thereupon, some argument ensued, and prisoner made a rush at Jones, whom he knocked down. Witness did not see the blow struck, but saw the prosecutor on the ground in an unconscious state, and with blood oozing from his mouth. Prisoner then ran away. Robert Overy, Llanelly, said that he was at Aberda-s on the night of the. 15tli of last month. He was in the company of the last witness and prisoner. They all entered Jones s break. Meantime the prosecutorI, remonstrated with Evans about some money. After hearing evidence from the prosecutor's ^landlady and the doctor, who attended to the injured man (who. with difficulty, tendered a brief testimony of what had happened to him), the Bench decided to commit the prisoner to take his trial at the next quarter sessions, bail being allowed in two sureties cf £ 20 each.
BAZAAR AT CARDIFF. ATTRACTIVE SPECTACLE AT THE PARK-HALL. One of the prettiest bazaars seen in Cardiff for some time is being held at the Park-hall with the object of reducing the debt on th.a Churches of St. Martin and St. Cyprian. Cardiff. The scheme of decoration is intended to represent a- barveat home and. village fes- tival. The upper portions of the stalls are thatched with straw, out from which appear old-fashioned gables with latticed windows, and at the far end of the hall stands a very realistic model of a straw rick with a May- pole and all its gay ribbons behind. The quaint and beautiful Old English costumes of the ladies, who wear dresses of particular colours according to the stalls at which they sell, add, considerably to the picturesqueness of the scene. There are thirteen stalls and side shows galore, the latter including piano- forte recitals by Mies Marie Xovello Williams, assisted by Miss Hilda Evane, contralto soloist, concerts being given by Madame Clara Xovello Davies and Party; dramatic sketches by the St. Martin's Histrionic Society and the Cardiff Dramatic Society, and the St. John's (Canton) Dramatic Society; organ recitals, concerts by the C^erphilly Male Voice Choir, and Mr. W. Gooderton's Party; and waxworks, besides other attrac- tions. '> The debts on the parieih church of St. Martin and the mission church of St. CypriUn are respectively £ 3.800 and ggoo, a total of £ 4,700. The termer was completed two years ago at a cost of P,5,200, and the latteer was erected some time previous on a site pre- sented by Lord Tredegar at a cost of £ 1,400. The Sazaar. which lasts for fottr days. was opened on Tuesday by Major-genral H. H. Lee. Councillor J. W. Courtis presided at the ceremony and was supported by Mrs. Mackintosh of Mackintosh, the Rev. C. G. Sutherland, vicar. Councillor R. Hughes, the Rev. F. J. Beck, Councillor Dr. Robinson, Mr. E. C. Wilmott. and others. The Rev. Mr. Sutherland said that Mrs. Mackintosh had not only "presented them with a valuable site for St. Martin's Church in Albany-road, but ha-d given them £ 2.000 and subscribed £100 a year towards their assistant cdergy fund. They were very grateful for her generosity. 'Applause.)
PRIVATE MOORINGS. I THE ACTION AGAINST A CARDIFF CONTRACTOR. In the King's Bench Division of the High Court of Justice on Tuesday the case of Anrteeon v. the Dundee, Perth, and London Shipping Company and Another came before the Lord Chief Justice for judg- ment.—The plaintiff, a barge-owner on the River Thames, sued for damages for the destruction of his private moorings at Limehouse, and also for the assess- ment., at value, of the said moorings. The defendants, the Dundee Company, denied that the plaintiff had any right of property in the moorings, and, alternatively, said tha;t if be had such right it was abro- gated by the licence granted to the Dundee Company by the Thames Couservincy to dredge berths for their steamers and to drive piles in the foreshore. The other defendant, Mr. Strachan. a contractor, of Cardiff, admitted the interference with the plaintiff's moorings, but said he did it in the course of the execution of his .contract with the Dundee Company. The case was opened before the Lord Chief Justice and a. special jury, but the jury was subsequently dis- charged and all matters in dispute left to the judge.—In giving judgment, his Lordship said the defence that the plaintiff had no right of property in the moorings had been practically abandoned, and if it had not been he should have found upon the evidence that the plaintiff had esta-bliahed a legal right to property in the moorings, though the right was not so absolute as the right to other property, because it was liable to be interfered with-by the incidents of naviga- tion. He found that the moorings had not been totally destroyed, as room for the moor- ing of three barges had been left. He found for the plaintiff on the claim for damages for 275 and on the question of value for CM, with costs of the action, the plaintiff to assign his rights in the property to defendants.
SENGHENYDD COLLIER'S CLAIM. I Simon Levis and Richard Levis" father and son, of Llanbradaoh, at Caerphilly Police- court on Tuesday sued the Universal Colliery Company for a month's wages in lieu of notice. Colonel Lewis appeared for the com- pany, and Mr. C. S. Goodfellow was for the claimants. Simon Levis said he signed on on the 3rd of October to commence work. The terms of the agree- ment were that it should be subject to one month's notice on either side. He was employed at a wage of 4s. 9d. a day and per- centage. On the 3rd of August, after he had started work, he was stopped.—For the defence, Tt was stated that the defendants called at the colliery and sa,id they were repairers, and were engaged as such. When the foreman visited their .working-place he found they were using one shovel between them. They only filled three trams on the first night. The following night they filled six trams and put up a pair of timber. The fireman called defendants' attention to the bad way in which they had put up the timber, and said they were slow in their work. The timber had to be taken out and re-placed. When the repairer removed tho piece of timber he filled ten trams.—After evidence had been given by several witnesses the Bench gave judgment for the company, with costs.
POXTYPOOL IRONWORKER'S I GRIEVANCE. "I did this simply to get away from my wife. as I cannot make head or tail of her." Such was the excuse which James Mallaney, a Pontypool ironworker, offered to a Ponty- pool bench cf magistrates on Tuesday when brought before them for breaking a gas lamp, the property of the Pontypool Urban District Council.—Police-«ergeant Bladon stated that the prisoner came to the police-station on Mon- day desiring to be locked up on the charge, and added that if the police did not do so he would go out and break Mr. Allmark's win- dow.ftperiiitend,ent James said that the prisoner's wife had given them a lot of trouble lat,eIV.-The damage was estimated by Mr. Wynn, the surveyor, at 3s. 6d., and the prisoner was fined 10s., or seven days in default.

THE ALDERSHOT TRAGEDY. I SOLDIERS AND CIVILIAN CHARGED I WITH MURDER, At Hampshire Assizes on Tuesday the trial opened of Wm.

Mr. Justice Wills intimated that the case could not be completed that day. Mr. Mathews, for the Crown, outlined the case. Deceased, an unfortunate, was found dead in a copse near the Wellington Statue. terribly mutilated, the body being more or Jess stripped. It was alleged that the prisoners drove with the woman in a cab on the night of the crime, and that Cowdrey told the ca.bman the soldiers were determined to have t-he woman's money, Evidence was called to the cffect that men answering to the description of Brown and I Dunbar had been in Atkins' company, and that after the tragedy, Cowdrey said it was time he cleared out. The hearing was adjourned.

THE. TAYLOR DIVORCE CASE, j j JURY .RETURN A VERDICT FOR I PETITIONER. I I In the Divoree Court on Tuesday the hearing concluded (before Mr. Justice Bucknill) of the petition of Yr. Charles Taylor, a veterinary surgeon, of Nottingham, for the dissolution of his marriage with his wife, Mrs. Georgina Alice Taylor. against whom he alleged miscon- duct with Mr. Charles Boswell, formerly of Cheltenham, described as the son of a Not- tingham horse dealer. The .tu.ry. after hearing counsel, found for the petitioner on all issues, and a decree nisi, with costs, was granted. During his address Mr. Marshall Hall, K.C., who appeared for the respondent, referred to the publication of the reports of the case. His Lordship, interposing, said those who appeared for the press in that court had an extremely painful and responsible duty to per- form. He had ascertained by looking at the Nottingham papers that there was nothing in the reports which could be properly described in the language Mr. Marshall Hall had formerly used. He thought every word repeated in the case had been fairly and properly repeated without giving a word of rhe details that had been given in evidence. Mr. Marshall Hall said if he was wrong he was very sorry. He did not mean that the whole of the medical evidence had been given in the papers, but there was more than a column a day in the Nottingham papers, and there was an inference as to the nature of the allega- tions. If what he said was considered to mean that certain details were in the papers in print he withdrew it. His Lordship: That is right.
DEATH OF THE COUNTESS I OF EUSTON. THE ROMANTIC CAREER OF A I t MUSIC-HALL ARTISTE. The death is reported to. have occurred at Fulham, London, on Tuesday, of the Countess of. Euston. Deceased, whose maiden name was Kate Walsh, was for some time a music- hall artiste, and was married to the Earl of Euston. the eldest son of the Duke of Grafton, in 1871. In 1884 Lord Euston commenced a suit fo'" nullity of marriage on the ground that his wife was already married when he married her. It was shown that she went through a form of marriage with a commercial traveller named Smith, but the ceremony was invalid, as Smith was already a married man. The jury found that Kate Walsh was not lawfully married to Smith, but was lawfully married to Lord Euston, who, therefore, lost his petition.
LOCAL SHIPPING APPEAL. DECISION OF MR. JUSTICE I KEKEWIQH REVERSED.

The counsel for the appellants, who were the defendants in the court below, were Mr. Rufna Isaacs, K.C., and Mr. Muir Mackenzie; and for the respondents, who were the plaintiffs in the court below. Mr. Warrington, K.C., Mr. Martelli, and Mr. George A. Morgan. Lord Justice Williams, after going at some length through the evidence, (;aid that they could not agree with the conclusion at whi-ch Mr. Justice Kekewich had arrived, and. Lords Justices Bomer and Stirling concurring, the appeal was allowed and the judgment of Mr. Justice Kekewich reversed.

CARDIFF BYE-ELECTION. EXCITING CONTEST IN GRANGE- TOWN WARD. THE DISPUTE BETWEEN THE PARTY AGENTS. Grangetown was in a ferment on Tuesday night in connection with the municipal bye- election which takes place to-day (Wednesday), when Dr. Cantillon will fight the battle on behalf of the Conservatives against Mr. A. Sessions. the chosen of the Liberals. The struggle all through has been the most excit- ing ward election which has taken place in Cardiff for many years. Both sides have held numerous meetings, an. fiery and vitriolic speeches have been the order, Thirf culmi- nated last night in a scene of great excite- ment throughout the ward. The Conserva- tives held two open-air meetings—one at the square in Bromsgrove-street, and the other near the Neville Hotel-at both of which reso- lutions were enthusiastically carried in favour oi Dr. Cantillon, although the Liberals did their utmost to swamp the Bromsgrove-street meeting, out without avail. The speakers were as vigorous as ever in advocacy of the candidature of the doctor, and the'workers at the committee-room were full of zeal for the cause. Those who addressed last night's meet- ings included Councillors Robert Hughes, Dr. Smitii. and J. J. Dixon, -,nd Dr..Car-tillon. Mr..Sessions's supporters were also in evi- dence. and a torchlight procession paraded the ward. A meeting was held in front of the Forward Movement-hall. but little could be heard of what the speakers said because of the opposition. The "pictures" of prominent local Liberal leaders and others were thrown oil a screen in front of Mr. Sessions's com- mittee-room, but the condition of the roads offered an abundance ot ammunition in the shape of mud, and the Grangetown youths. Wiui unerring aim, soon converted the screen into the antithesis of a thing of beauty. Mr. Lewis Williams—the picture, not the man- received one dab in the eye, and there was a wicked roar of applause. It is believed on all hands that the contest will be an exceedingly close one, and it may be taken for granted that both sides will struggle hard for victory. Mr. Allgood was seen on Tuesday night with regard to the events of the preceding night. He re-asserted that when he appeared at Dr. Cantillon's meeting, the door was banged in his face by Mr. Waddington and another man. Later Mr. Waddington made an attempt to enter the Liberal, meeting, but be was Informed by Mr. David Shepherd that he would not be allowed to speak. "Personally," said Mr. Allgood. "I would have preferred that he had been permitted to speak, but I was not in control of the meeting, and did not wish to influence the chairman in his ruling. Mr. Allgood admitted that Mr. Waddington was invited to the meeting. Mr. Haddington issued a leaflet on Tuead&y morning pointing out that the public meeting held last week was adjourned to the following Monday to suit Mr. Allgood's con- venience. and that the preqs reported this, therefore, Mr. Itllgood (Mr. Waddington stated) knew .perfectly ",pH the date of the meeting. But why had Mr. Allgood written him a letter, which he received at five minutes to eight on Monday evening, stating that he fMr. Allgood) could not attend the second meeting? It was utterly antrue to say that he (Mr. Waddington) banged "-y door in his face." He was never at either door, neither was Mr. Allgood. Mr. Allgood's letter stated that he could not attend owing to his having a .meeting at Bromsgroye-street, and gave him* (Mr. N-vaddington) a cordial invita- tion to Bromsgrove-street. Mr. Waddington a_ccepfced this, but when he got near Mr. Sessions'*? platform he was stopped by Mr. David Shepherd, who asked him to leave. He at once obeyed, a.nd several liberty-loving Free Cburchites helped him away by kicks, after inviting him to come. Councillor Dixon, wlio presided, adds a note to Mr. Waddington'a leaflet, stating that Mr. Waddington was on the platform from fifteen minutes to eight, and could not, therefore, have been at any door to slam it in Mr. All- good's face. The fact remains, however, that Mr. Waddington did on Mr. Allgood's own showing face the music, and was refused a hearing. Late last night leaflets were issued to the Liberal workers for distribution, setting out the practices which are regarded as corrupt. The leaflet asks those who favour Mr. Sessiona to assist in the exposure of all and every forth of electoral corruption, and intimates that snapshot cameras might be usefully employed in this work. We may observe that the Conservatives have enrolled a large staff of special detec- tives who are experienced in the work of electoral corruption. HELP WANTED AT GRANGE ELECTION TO-DAY. Those who can should to-day help the Con- servative candidate personally. Motors and other conveyances should be sent to Dr. Can- tillon's committee-room, close to Bromsgrove- street Board School.
I THEATRE ROYAL, CARDIFF. j THE PERFORMANCES OF TOL- STOY'S "RESURRECTION." There was another large and- appreciative audience at the Theatre Royal, Cardiff, on Tuesday evening, when Count Tolstoy's "Resurrection" was again performed. The play is in several respects remarkable. At first suggestion it would seem almost an impos- sibility to successfully dramatise "Resurrec- tion." The novel is EO long. its characters are so numerous, it is so discursive, crammed full of Tolstoy's distinctive propaganda, dealing with nearly every modern "ism" under the sun that a stage adaptation which would do justice rut once to the novel and to dramatic art appears to be unthinkable. Yet when all these accretions are stripped off, and the story as originally told to Tolstoy —for it W a true tale-—i3 laid bare, its dramatic possibilities are at once apparent. You have the lowly, fresh-eouled maid "Katusha;" you have "Prince Dimitry Nekhludoff," fundamentally an idealist, but perverted for the time by the vicious idleness of military life; and there is the everlasting story of passion and sin, shame and repent- ance, and the "resurrection" of a man and a woman to a life thrilling with a new mean- ing and a new; purpose. That is the strong, simple framework of the novel upon which the drama has been built up. Doubtless the chief difficulty of the adapters would be to convey from Tolstoy's masterpiece the spirit of thingD Russian, the strange commingling of sad mysticism, idealism, and gross materialism which. to the outside under- standing at least, appear to be the peculiar characteristics of the Muscovite. But this has been done, and well done. "Resurrection" has been played by Mr. Beerbohm Tree in London with great success, and the company which he has organised to tour the provinces with tlie piece is promised a triumph. Mil's Frances Dillon, who plays the part of the peasant maid "Katusha," is a young, but already well-tried, actress, who previous to taking up this part was playing the lead in Mr. Tree's "Eternal City" Company. She is equally true and touching in the sweet love scene at the opening of the drama, in the subsequent scenes of abandonment and hideous realiem of prison life, in the subdued and tender passages in the prison dispen- sary. and in the closing scene, which is per- meated with the spirit of renunciation and devotion. Mr. Henry Renouf, who acted so powerfully as "John Storm" in the "Eternal City," as "Nekhludoff" acted with that quiet effectiveness, dignity, and restraint which one would most desire, in such a part.. The weird Russian music was an artistic and exceedingly appropriate accessory, and the scenery, especially of the prison interior and the prisoners' halting place in Siberia, was more than commonly striking.

Wiljiame "SI)okes") presiding, Mr., T. llich. referee in the match between Barry -United and 8t, Teilo's. reported Slater and Hampton for misconduct on the fieli. Both were sus- pended for a week. st. Teilo's complained of Mackintosh playing J. Wand without a transfer. The committee over-ruled the objection. Penarth United claimed league points through the non-appearance of the Cardiff Barbarianff in last Saturday's leagun natch. The matter was adjourned for a week. An important subject of discussion eoaued npon the complaint of the Mackintosh Club that the Cardiff Club had declined to make them a donation in respect of a match which they had played with the Cardiff Reserves on October 31. Various other complaints a?ainet the Cardiff Club on the ground of indifferent treatment of local clubs were also lodged, and several members expressed themselves strongly against the bad treatment meted out to them by the Cardiff Club. One instance might be cited in the action of the premier authorities in refusing to allow the Gran-ge Stars to make use of the usual accom- modation given to visiting teams at the Grand Hotel in S,-Ptember.-The Chairman pacified the turbulent spirits hy the reasonable pro- posal that a deputation from the Union should wait upon the Cardiff Club Committee at their next meeting, and this motion was eventually carried, the following being appointed on the deputationMessrs.

BANK OF ENGLAND OUTRAGE. OUTR-A-xr,. INDISCRIMINATE FIRING BY A MADMAN. NARROW ESCAPE OF POLICE AND OFFICIALS. A sensation was caused in the Bank of England on Tuesday at half-past twelve by the firing of a revolver by a young man. who had entered the library. As he seemed about to continue his firing indiscriminately, the officials 4overpowered and disarmed him. The police were called in, and he was removed to the Cloak-lane Police-station. He gave his name as George Frederick Robinson, aged about 30, and said he came from the East-end. His speech was incoherent, and his actions strange. A doctor was summoned, who pro- nounced the man insane. So far as known, no one wae bit by the bullets. Later inquiries show that Robinson passed through the public offices at the bank and made his way into one of the private rooms. Here he was met by Mr. Ken- neth Grahame. the secretary of the Danle. The intruder immediately stepped back, whipped out a revolver, and fired four shots. all of which, fortunately, missed Mr. Graliame, and only damaged the walls of the -rooms. Before he wad able to do any fur- ther damage he was overpowered by the officials, who had rushed in at the found of the firing. The whole affair is a mystery to the Bank officials, aa the man was not known to any of them The outrage is supposed to be a mad freak. Another account say,In the consternation which prevailed throughout the building some of the earliest arrivals took down a water hose that was handy and PlayeA upon the man, soaking him to the skin. In another moment Inspector Bacon and Detective Digby, who were on duty in plain clothes at the Bank. rushed in. The prisoner evidently saw them coming through the glass doors, for he again raised the revolver a.nd fired two shots, smashing the doors, but missing the officers. He was quickly overpowered and handcuffcd, and, being strapped to an ambulance, he was carried to Cloak-lane Police-station. The man -has a nasty cut on the head, probably through falling. While lying in the police- station he dozed at intervals, but when he opened his eyes' it would be to look vacantly round the room and emile at those present. Considering the number of persons engaged in the Bank and the members of the public who are always at the counters, it is nothing short of miraculous that no one was hit by the flying shots. The only personal injury was sustained by Detective Digby, whose hand was grazed, but whether by shot or glass he cannot say. The man Robinson has not yet given a.ny detailed account of himself, but it is understood that he has lived on the Gold Coast of West Africa.
NORTH WALES TRAGEDY. I ALLEGED MANSLAUGHTER OF A POLICEMAN. At Montgomery Borough Police-court on Tuesday Thomas Stephen Davies, landlord of the Cottage Ion. Montgomery, was again brought up in custody charged with the wilful murder of Pollee* sergeant William Davis, on the evening of November 16. Since the re- mand last Tuesday, the coroner's jury had returned a verdiot of manslaughter against the amused. Mr. Mark Taylor, Newtown, prosecuted, and Mr. Martin Woosnam de- fended. Considerable public interest was evinced in the case, the court being crowded. Mr. 'raylor, at the outset, detailed the cir- cumstances of the case, and said he would prove that the officer was assaulted by the prisoner in the execution of his duty. He would prove also a previous conviction against the prisoner for assaulting the deceased, and would call evidence to show that the prisoner had further threatened murder. Mr. Woosnam took exception to this, on the ground that neither conviction nor threat had anything to do with the present charge. Mr. Taylor replied that, as the prisoner was charged with murder, it was his duty to prove malice aforethought, and it was for their wor- ships to say, after hearing the evidence, whether it was sufficient to warrant the prisoner being committed for murder or only for manslaughter. Counsel then entered into a few definition,- of murder, and submitted that, in any event, this was manslaughter. Evidante was then taken Deputy Chief-constable William? said the prisoner when arrested replied, I know nothing at all about it." Witness told him it was a serious matter, to which prisoner said, I am quite innocent of it." Mary Davies, the widow, deposed to being awakened in her Bleep about midnight on the night of the occurrence. She immediately rpse, went to the window, and screamed. The next she heard was her husband saying, If you don't go home I will lock you up." She next went downstairs and opened the doors, and the first thing she saw was two men on the ground. Witness asked deceased whom he had there. and he replied, Stephen Davies, the rascal from the Cottage," adding that he would not take his cursing and swearing. Prisoner next called out. "Bob Chase and Bess, mim and help me; they are murdering me.' Fearing a general row, wit- ness induced her husband to release the pri- soner. Her husband then came in and looked at himself in the glass. There was blood on his face, and he remonstrated with witnes for persuading him to free Stephen Davies. Witness was about to repeat the conversation between them when Mr. Woosnam objected to its admission, as, although the officer died an hour afterwards, he had no idea of im- mediate impending dissolution, and the con- versation, therefore, was not a dying declara- tion. A long legal argument followed, the Bench eventually ruling that the conversation was not admissible. 'Dr. Cureton, Shrewsbury, who conducted the a.utopsy. repeated the evidence he gave at the inquest, attributing death to syncope, adding that he thought the scuffle which was alleged to have taken place between deceased and prisoner, accelerated death. Dr. William Thomas, who was present at the poet-vortem examination, said he agreed with Dr. Cureton's conclusions. Prisoner was committed for trial on a charge of manslaughter, bail being allowed.
SLAPPED BY THE LANDLADY. I Bernard Keene, a collier, of Bargoed, sum- moned Mr. H. E. and Mrs. Earle, of the Plas- newydd Hotel, Bargoed, at the Caerphilly Police-court on Tuesday for assault. Mrs. Earle preferred a charge against Keene of disorderly behaviour and with refusing to quit; and Earle charged him with assault and battery. Mr. T. J. Thomas, Bargoed, appeared for 'the Earles, and Mr. W. Spickett represented Keenfb.Compla-ihant said he had been living at Maesteg, and now conducted a: dancing class at Bargoed. He engaged the assembly rooms for holding a dapce, and, in consequence of his finding them engaged by someone else, he was unable to conduct hir, class. He questioned Mrs. Earle about it, and she slapped him in the face. Mr. Earle (he said) threw -him out.—Mr. and MfP. Earle denied the allegation, and said that Keene had been disorderly in the passage of the hotel.—The Magistrates imposed a fine of El each and costs upon Mr. and Mrs. Earle, and dismissed the case against Keene.

SHCr AT A RANGE I The Fatality to a Bridgend Man. An inquest was held on Tuesday before Mr. Reece. deputy-coroner) i-„t Bridgend, touch- ing the death of William Purnell, who was fatally shot on the Volunteer range. near Bridgend, on Saturday last.-The father of the deceased identified the body, and said his son was marking in his stead. Edward Davies, who was marking with Pur- nell, said they were both in the butt together, He bad his back towards deceased when he heard him cry out, "Ob. Ned, I am shot." He was then struggling on the ground. Witness immediately raised the danger flag, and held deceased in his arms. Deceased was about four feet from witness when hit. David J. Richards, a. private, said they were firing at the 500 yards range. He did not see Purnell's head or body. Dr. Thomas, Bridgend, said when he was called he found the deceased unconscious, and there was no hope for him. There were two wounds, one over the middle of the left eyebrow and the other two inches behind the ear and slightly above it. The wound over the ear was irregular and half an inch across. There was some brain protruding from it, and blcod was oozing. The wound was sufficiently large to pass the tin of his finger into it. Nothing could possibly be done for the poor'fellow. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death," and stated that there was no blame to be attached to anyone.
GREAT FINGALL FRAUDS. I Serious Charge Against a Secretary. At the Guildhall, London, on Tuesday Anthony S. Rowe, described as- a secretary, was charged upon a warrant with forging and I uttering share certificates of the Great tin- gall Consolidated Company, thus defrauding the company of some £ 130,000.—-Sir George Lewis, who appeared for the prosecution, said the defendant had been secretary of a number of companies, and the charges were of forgery, embezzlement, and stealing moneys belonging to the Great Fingall Mines. In 1901 he became junior partner of Messrs. Bewick, Morcing, and Co., and it appeared he had stolen from the Great Fingall Company the sum of £ 32,000, and from the Aurora Mines (Limited) £ 13,000; while in addition, by forgery and fraud, he had obtained from members of the Stock Ex- change £ 80,000. The frauds committed by Rowe amounted to £ 130,000. but Messrs. Bewick and Co.. as a matter of honour, and on account of prisoner's relationship with their firm, had paid the whole of the money, so the shareholders had sustained no loiw. In Decem- ber last Rowe absconded, and it was not until two montlis. ago that he was traced to Toronto, where he was found trading under the name of Prescott as a o t ocL- broke r.-Th-- detective .who brought Rowe to England having given evidence of arrest, prisoner was remanded until. Tuesday next.
FATAL NEWPORT QUARREL. I Remarkable Statements at an ] Inquest. An inquest was held at the Town-hall, New- port. on Tuesday, before the coroner (Mr. Lyndon Moore), concerning the death of Wm. Patrick Flynn. a labouring man, 35 years of age, who lived at 86, Baldwin-street, and who, having been in the workhouse hospital for some time, died on Saturday last. It had been alleged that there had boen an alter- cation between' Flynn and his brother-in-law 'Patrick Power) in the house on the ,10th of November, that Flynn. being struck, had to be placed under medical attendance, and that he was removed to the workhouse. The widow was called as a witness, hut she swooned as she was giving her evidence, and had to be carried away. Evidence was subse- quently given to the effect that Flynn used offensive expressions towards his mother-in- law, and that a fight between him and Power ensued.—Dr. Macormack said that death was due to the bursting of a blood vessel in the head, which might have been caused by vio- lence. There were no signs of Flynn having been a hard drinker.—A witness stated that persons who knew something of the case were afraid to come forward, and the inquest was adjourned.
MARINE ENGINEERS. I INTERESTING ADDRESS BY SIR I JOHN GUNN. At the London Institution Sir John Gunn delivered his presidential address to the mem- bers of the Institute of Marine Engineers, and afterwards presented the Denny gold medal to Mr. C. W. Barnes. Sir John Gunn referred in the course of his address to the great changes which had taken place in marine engineering during the last quarter of a century, and discussed the best methods of training those who wished to join the profession. He had always thought that a youth should have a good theoretical training to begin with, to be followed by practical work in the machine and tool shop before proceeding to sea. All the best men who had given consideration to the subject were agreed that in order to be a practical and thoroughly qualified marine engineer a man must go to sea. (Hear, hear.) Theoreti- cal knowledge was not sufficient. It was essential to learn by actual experience how to control the machinery in operation, and how, in case of accident or danger, its defects should be remedied. In his opinion, the engi- neer on board ship had not yet attained to the position to which he was reasonably entitled. In the N-avy something had been done for him. but not a. great deal. From j his personal knowledge of Lord Selborne, he felt sure that the country had now as First Lord of the Admiralty one who would not let red tape prevent him from doing his duty and putting the right men in the right place. But it was with, regard to the mercan- tile marine that an improvement was even more needed than in the Navy. If we were to maintain our prestige as a nation in time of stress and difficulty it was essential that our marine engineers should be thoroughly well trained and accorded the position which their responsible duties warranted them in denlanding. He concluded by handing the Denny medal to Mr. Barnes, observing that it was awarded f the paper read by that gentleman last session on Ship Electric Lighting." The medal was founded by the late Mr. Peter Denny, of the shipbuilding firm of Denny Brothers. A paper on Grinding Machinery and Abrasive Wheels" was afterwards read by Mr. Keith C. Bales, who stated that the grind- ing machine was of comparatively modern introduction, particularly with regard to its I use in machine shops on general work, but it was becoming an indispensable tool in any up-to-date works. The perfection which was to-day demanded in a great variety of machines, both in parts finished soft and hard, was such that no other means except grind- ing would meet the requirements.
ASSAULT WITH A GAS-PIPE. At Cardiff Police-court on Tuesday Henry Taylor, 21, was charged with assaulting and wounding Edward Collins on the head with a piece of gas-pipe, with intent, in Stoughton- street, on November 23.—Prosecutor, whose head was bandaged, said he returned home to 15, Stoughton-street, at midnight. He was in the act of knocking at the door, when prisoner came up, and, hitting him on the head with the piece of gaa-pipc, said, "I have fixed you now." There had been no words previously, and he had never seen prisoner before.-Accueed denied the assault. He also asserted that prosecutor first smashed his windows, and that he and his wife had sub- jected him (the accused) to great annoyance. —Fined 40s. and costs or one month.

A CARDIFF BANKRUPTCY, J SERIOUS CHARGE BROUGHT I uaAGAINST A BAKER. Before the Cardiff Bench on Tuesday, the I case was again mentioned of Frederick Needs i (35i, baker, who was charged that between October 6, 1897, and June 10. 1905, he, being a bankrupt, did not to the best of his know- ledge and belief fully and truly discover to the trustees administering his estate for the benefit of his creditors, a certain part of his personal property-the sum of 1251 10s.-being the amount obtained by him in realising his aesets and withdrawal of his balance from the bank, which sum had not been disposed of in the ordinary way of trade or laid out in the ordinary expense of his family.-Mr. Lewis Morgan (for the Director of Public Prosecutions) said prisoner was charged with certain offences under the Bankruptcy Act, and Mr. Morgan Rees was for the defence. It was impossible to proceed with the case that day, and Mr. Rees consented to a further remand for a week. Defendant was at pre- sent out on bail, and he (Mr. Morgan) had no objection to the same bail being granted. The Bench consented to the remand., Defendant's bail is himself in £ 1C0, and two- sureties in £50 each.
MACgDONIAN MACEDONIAN REFORMS. 1 EVASIVE REPLY FROM THE I TURKISH GOVERNMENT. A Constantinople corpssfcondent affirms tbM the Ministers in Council on Monday drew up I and afterwards handed to the Sultan the- Turkish reply to the Austro-Russian Note. The reply is an evasive one. and contains several suggestions for the modification, of the reform propo"la.Ceutral News. It is authoritatively announced in Vienna that if the Sultan should persist in refuting or ignoring the demands of the two Powers the latter will proceed to re-establish peace in Macedonia with thtir own forces, after asking the co-operation of the other signatoty Powers. According to a dispatch from Con- stantinople. only Tewfik Pasha, his secretary at the Foreign Ministry, Izzet Bey, and the Grand Vizier were in favour at the last Council of accepting the Russo-Austrian demands. All the other Ministers were vehemently opposed to the acceptance of any scheme of reform in Macedonia which would in any way lessen the prestige of the Sultan.—Central News.
[ SOUTH WALES HOCKEY. TALL SCORING BY THE CARDIFF' TEAM. -Cardiff journeyed to Absrdare on Saturday, to meet the locals, and were minus Evans. Lundie, Ware, and their usual goalkeeper. But, in spite of these defections, they proved too strong for the homesters, and won by nine goaJs to nil. Cardiff's attack was great. Their forwards had a. day out, Turnbull, at centre, getting five out of the nine goals. The Cardiff goalkeeper was not called upon to defend once throughout the game. Dymond was best for Aberdare, his long hits proving him to he a very capable back. Cardiff are now looking forward to their visit to Aber. gavenny.. East Cardiff played Chepstow, in mid-week, on Llandaff Fields, and won by four goals to two. It is really impossible to make any remarks about this game, as it was completely spoilt by the rough tactics of Chep3tow. East Cardiff were really lucky only to get two men knocked out. The referee, who is well known. ga.ve some extraordinary decisions. Cardiff are playing Chep&tow on the 28th. East Cardiff went to Bassaleg on Saturday last, and defeated the homesters by seven, goals to nil. The Cardiff Intermediate Old Boys met Whit- church on Saturday for the Second time this season, the result being that Whitchurch were defeated by eight goals to nil. The chief scorers for the Old Boys were Bennett (four) and Oxland (three). From the putset it was evident that the Old Boys were by far the superior team, and. although playing against a strong wind in the first half. managed to notch thres goals. Throughout the second half the game was very one-sided, the Whit- church men not being able to get over their- Opponents' 25 more than twice. The Old Bove meet Newport Seconds at Newport next Setur- day. when they hope to have a good game. Eaat Cardiff H. played Abergàvenny 11. at Llandaff Fields. The visiting team was at full strength, while the home team played two reserves. The play was of a very even character throughout. The Abergavenny forwards showed excellent combination, bat their efforts were frustrated time after time by the home backs, who played a fine defen- sive game. The home forwards were rather selfish with the ball, and this weakness, no doubt, was the means of losing the game.
