TWO LIVES FOR ONE TERRIBLE LIFEBOAT DISASTER Heroic Fight with Death I SUDDEN GUST: BOAT TURNS OVER. COXSWAIN'S NARRATIVE. I Details became known this morning of an accident to Ryde (Isle of Wight) lifeboat, which resulted in the death by drowning of two members of the crew. The lifeboat put out at about five o'olook last evening from Ryde Pier to the assist- ance of a boat which had broken away from a barge, and which had a man on board. The lifeboat made a oareful search as far as the Warren Lightship, but without suc- cess, and started to return to Ryde. The wind was blowing hard, and when off Ryde Pier-head a heavy squall struck the lifeboat, which capsized. Her crew of nine men were thrown into the water. The high wind drowned their cries for assistance, but they managed to hang on to the capsized boat, which drifted, with strongly running tide, across Spithead, in the direction of Portsmouth Harbour. When about a quarter of a mile from Southsea Oastle, two of the men- William Howard, of High-street, Byde, :second coxswain of the lifeboat, and Frank Haines, a Ryde coastguardsman, 'Were swept away from the upturned boat, and their bodies were subsequently recovered at Southsea. Held On when Dead. 'J."he survivors, who landed at Southsea, rePorted their terrible experience to the authorities there. They stated that their two unfortunate comrades were really dead on the capsized boat for some time, but tney held them up in hopes of getting them ashore. After the survivors had landed a close watch was kept, and between three and four o'clock this morning the bodies of Heward n.nd Haines were discovered drifting ashore, and were removed to Portsmouth Mortuary, The survivors of the crew, on drifting shore wards at Southsea, were fortunate in having their cries for help heard by the coast guardsmen and the police on duty. They were rescued with some risk and difficulty. Coastguard Louis Richardson put off to their assistance with a life-belt round him, RQd, with help from others, hauled the men ashore. They were in a terribly exhausted condition and after being treated at the police-station, where restoratives were administered, they were removed to hospital, and are now reported to be making good recovery. Coxswain's Narrative William Bartlett, the coxswain, who has beem with the Ryde lifeboats for twelve years, has been able to give a narrative of men's terrible experiences. The lifeboat elina, which was provided by the National lifeboat Institution from a legacy left by ZJady Selina Edwards, had (he says) been on station twelve months, and, though boated on five occasions for praotice, this Was her first life-saving expedition,. We put off," said Bartlett, with a crew nine men, amongst whom was a coast- ^uardsman, who came with us to make up the crew. We went right out to sea between he Noma-ns and the Horses and Forts, and cruised about for a while, and then put back and spoke the Warner Lightship, to ^certain if they had seen anything of the drifting boat. Not seeing the boat ourselves, we beat to the pier, hard into the wind, and were nearly home when a sudden guet caught 1"6, and the iifeboat Turned Right Over between the Bell Buoy and the pier-head. W all clung to the boat as best we could, and clambered on to her bottom. Prom: about eight o'clock to a quarter to two or barter-past two ('I don't know which) We were drifting helplessly in a strong south- West wind, and, finally, we brought up on the east side of Southsea Castle. The onkY vessel we sighted during that time was a big schooner coming in from the oPen sea and bound westward, and though We shouted we were unable to make ourselves heard." ■M* Bartlett, who was terribly exhausted and numbed, was the last to be taken by Richardson from off the upturned boat. The boat was a new one, and replaced the old lifeboat a year ago. There has always be.en difficulty in launching a lifeboat at ltYde, and it is thought the boat sustained BOl11e damage when it was thrown back on to the slip. T'he crew was a smart one, consisting of fisherman well accustomed to local waters. At the launch only eight of the lifeboat cr- were present, and Haines Volunteei,ed to Go. Out I The man in the ship's boat to whose aflOS- toilice the lifeboat went out was afterwards lacked up by the Bembridge Lifeboat to the Eastward of the Isle of Wight. When the lifeboat was laumdhed it was thrown back on the slip and capsized. Finally, however, the men got away. The boat was afterwards washed up on Southsea Beach. The survivors had to be taken to hospital. The iSeliiua is a surf boat, with dropped keel, Itnd liB not a self-righting boat. It is stated that the missing boat for which the Ryde lifeboat was searching had two men I on bcxtrd. I Their shoots were heard by the artillery- taen on one of the Spithead forts, but in the tremendous seas that were raging they were I Unable to render any assistance. The Bembridge lifeboat also put out last I Ilight, and spent ten hours in & fruitless I Bearoh for the boat. A Heartbreaking Incident Anther laxscount states that the crew hung on. -to the upturned keel by means of ii £ e" lines. It was a terrible ordeal that the men Went through, the water was icy cold, and fell dn torrents. A heavy storm was Tagting and seas beat tihem about mercilessly. Just as rescue waa at hand Heward and Haines, unable to hold on tuny longer, let go and were drowned. A pathetic feature of the case is that Hiaines left a dead child. at home. He had just completed his time for pension.

I 29 Burglaries I MAESTEG LABOURER CHARGED AT SWANSEA. Thomas Evans, a labourer, of Maesteg, was charged at Swansea Police-court to-day with a long array of burglaries at Swansea. Prisoner's brother was recently arrested, charged with 28 burglaries, and has been committed for trial. Prisoner was arrested at Neath, and was subsequently charged with no less than 29 burglaries. Some of these, however, are the same as those in which his brother is charged. A quantity of stolen jewellery and other articles, which were said to have been found in his possession, were produced in court. Three charges were fully investigated. They were for breaking into: — 6, Terrace-road, Swansea, and stealing three gold rings, gold locket, chain, bangle, nine silver spoons, sugar tongs, &c., valued 45. St. David's House, Uplands (the residence of Mrs. Phillips, widow of the late Mr. Thomas Phillips, J.P.), and stealing a silver sandwich box, card case, pair of gold- rimmed spectacles, and case and other articles, valued at 14; and 115, Neath-road, Swansea, the shop of Mr. D. Crystol, pawnbroker, and stealing a number of gold and silver watches, chains, medals, Ac., valued at £ 25. several witnesses were called to show that PrIsoner had sold or offered to sell some of the missing property. Detective-sergeant Roberts said that when he received the prisoner in custody from the county police, he said, "I know nothing about it, Mr. Roberts." He had charged prisoner with some of the offences, and he made no reply. Prisoner was committed for trial on all three charges. A case in which the prisoner had been detected in the act was then taken. He was charged with breaking into Lilac Cottage, Sketty, and stealing 2s. lOd. and some keys. Miss Jones lived at the house with her niece. She was awakened on the night of the 8th of October by a noise downstairs. She went down, and observed a light in the drawing-room. She also heard what she thought was a conversation between someone inside and another outaide. The window was open. The drawers and cupboards were ransacked; the prisoner was rifling a desk. He had a lighted candle in his hand. When ahe shouted "Who's here?" prisoner Dashed to the Window, and broke the glass, and in 90 doing pulled down the Venetian blinds, which fell upon his bead. Her nieoe went for the police. A pawn-ticket, bearing prisoner's name, was ef" oehmd, with the light. lIe was committed for trial on this charge. I
Mark Melford s Motorl SOME AMUSING COUNTY COURT I REVELATIONS Mr. Mark Meiford, the well-known music- hall artist, of Grove End-road, St. John s- ?o'd, was defendant ':n an a?tio?i brought at M.rylûbone County-court yesterday by Mr. IVilliatn Peek, a gentleman of independent mesng, of Dormans-park, East Grinstead. t Ladntiff said that he and defendant had jointly owned two motor-oars, a large and a t'ttiall one. The cars were out of repair on purchase, but £ 7 was spent on putting them into shape, and defendant then used them for professional purposes—for going about trom one music-hall to another when he had Feveral "turns" in one evening. Finally defendant agreed that plaintiff should put the smaller car into repair, and take it into the country, where it would a better chance of sale. It had never n sold, however, and was, in fact, worthless. Plaintiff now sought to recover £5 lis. 3d., half the money he had spent on the repairs; and £ 5 as his share of the £10 Mr. Melford bad received for the other car. This latter £k Mr. Meiford had now paid into court, r. Warde: These two motor-cars were worth, nothing except for the scrap iron heap ? Plaintiff: Oh, no; of course not! And yet Mr. Melford was able to sell one for £10?- It was the better of the two. I hfad to take mine to be repaired; the fire box was all burnt out by Mr. Melford. (Laughter.) On another occasion I had to take it across London on a big lorry because it would not go! Well, I hope you haven't driven many of these £5 cars, if there are many of them about?—No, I know them too well! I took the small car to Lingfield, and on the way to Normans-park the wretched thing broke down, and I had to fetch it with a horse. (Loud laughter.) Melford denied that he had under- taken to pay half the costs of having the sma.ller oar put in repair. I said, I have lost £ 600 on motor-cars, and I won't lose a penny more!" Sir William Selfe found for the plaintiff for the amount paid into oourt, with costs up to the time the money was paid in.
83 Weds 32 I PASTOR AND NURSE I Old-fashioned Cuckfield, Sussex, was agog with excitement yesterday, when the Rev. Robert Martin, the Baptist minister, was married to Nurse Roberts, whose acquaint- ance he made while visiting the inmates in the infirmary ward at the work-house. Mv- r. Martin, who lost his wife eight years ago, is a tall man, but the weight of his 83 years has bent his ibetok and frosted his hair. His brother was a former mayor of Brighton. Nurse Roberts's 32 years sit lightly upon her, and she has a most winning manner. of her friends knew that a marriage had been arranged until the Cuckfield guardians were informed last week that the ecreinony was fixed for New Year's Day. She aiJked to be excused from further service, but the guardians, putting duty before pleasure, declined to allow her to quit her post until her month's notice had expired. -the marriage took place by special license nino o'clock in the Zion Baptist Ohapel, yuckfi-eld. The bridegroom is suffering from influenza, and it was doubtful whether he would be well enough to leave his room, espe- aily as the weather was bad. He did not, now ever, disappoint his bride. She arrived Punctually with her brother, Mr. David Roberts, Liverpool. Her wedding dress, bxow" in colour, was made in Brighton; with it she wore a beaver toque. The little chapel w46 almost filled with a curious crowd, who listened intently to Mr. Webb, of Brighton, who conducted the service. Nurse Jones, of yckfield, a former colleague of the bride, was the only guest. r. Martin flushed a little as he said I w "I," and the bride responded somewhat Mrvo?y The newly-wedded couple were besprinkled with confetti as they passed to their carriage. The wedding cake, a larga ?°?' was decorated with a silver band. f-iter it had been cut, Mr. Martin returned to h? sick room.
A Spanish Tichborne' TWO MEN SENT TO PENAL SERVITUDE I -TWO year8 ag0 a Spanish blacksmith named Pierre Eiera, brought an action against a distant cousin, the Marquis of Casa Riera, a man of 81, who lived in Paris and was repted to be worth six millions sterling. claimed the estate as next-of-kin, declared that the marquis was an adventurer personating the real marquis, who died in 1878, three months before he would have succeeded to his uncle's title and estates. Pierre Riera's claim was rejected, and he thereupon disappeared from the story, and prosecution for fraud was institiuted against the men who had forged a death certificate, and bo made Pierre Riera their tool. Yesterday, at B-aroelona. two were sen- tenced to eight years' penal servitude, and ¡ one to imprisonment.
HORSES' NEW YEAR FEAST I Seventy horses and two donkeys feasted I sumptuously at the Home of Rest for Horses at Acton yesterday, the ocoasion being the fifteenth annual New Year's dinner to the inmates.

A DOUBLE LIFE, FOUR BURGLARIES A NIGHT Carpenter Who Owned a Bungaiow The remarkable double life led by a young man who combined the professions of car- penter and burglar was exposed yesterday in a Clerkenwell Sessions ca-se. The name of this real-life Raffles" is William Parker, aged 26, and he was sen- tenced yesterday to two years' hard labour for burglary at the residence of Henry Munday Clark, Croftdown-road. Highgate. Wirh him in the dock were Thomas Arnold, 22, and Daniel Edgington, 18, labourers. The latter had been twice convicted of minor offences, but it was entirely through Parker (the police said) that he had gone in for burglary; and Arnold had been hitherto of good character When arrested, Edgington volunteered to point out the spot in the grounds of High- gate Convent, Highgate-road, where they had buried a quantity of plate and a number of bottles of hock and claret. The informa- tion proved correct, and Edgington was sen- tenced to twelve months, while Arnold was bound over, and released on the recogni- sances of his father. The Double Life -1 Parker, of the double life, was first arrested in 1904. For four years, it was dis- covered, he had been carrying on the busi- ness of a. builder in Dartmouth-park, N.W., and earning the esteem of the districts of Kentish Town, Hampstead, and Highgate, while at the same time secretly executing an astounding number of burglaries, aided by his expert inside knowledge of the cil .b?s which he "cracked." It was stated that he had done four bur- glaries a night for two months. He used to leave home for work at six in the morning, and return about the same time at night; and in the summer evenings used to out quite a dash with the hired hordes which he rode or drove, for he had a very pretty taste in horseflesh. At length it was noticed that Parker had built for himself a bungalow adjoining his workshop at York-rise, Highgate, and tbolt this coincided with all inexplicable eeries of burglaries in the neighbourhood. The bungalow waa elaborately furnished, with trellis-work all round, and so constructed that the music and card parties which he held there in the dark evenings were safe from outside observation. With Doubtful Characters When Parker happened one evening to be met by a detective in the company of doubtful characters, suspicion began to close rou.nd him, and his bungalow was watched. All was without avail, however, until the interesting discovery was made that there was a secret exit from the bungalow, leading out at the back into neighbouring back premises and giving aocess to neighbour's houses. It did not matter, 'therefore, how carefully the police watched the front of the bungalow—Parker could leave and return by the secret door at the back without a soul being the wiser. As a matter of fact, it often happened that while the detectives were watching his front door Parker would leave unobserved by the back, commit a burglary, and return quite unchallenged! Laborious inquiries resulted in Parker's arrest. The further amazing fact then came out that Piarker had for long been very intimate with the local police, who trusted him implicitly, and from whom Parker had no difficulty in learning when extra police patrols had been put on. The burglaries at such times singularly ceased, but as soon as the extra patrols were withdrawn they re- commenced. Identified by Bootmarks Marks of boot-protee-s round in the garden of a house that had been entered, which marks corresponded with protectors in Parker's boots, had much to do with his conviction, and, although there was a-etua.1 proof against him of only this one burglary, Inspector Noil bad no doubt that he was tihe author of dozens of others committed in the preceding four years. When serving his sentence he boasted that he could remove a window or open the best- secured door without disturbing the house- hold, thanks to his expert skill as a car- penter. He admitted one fault-that he had not found good receivers for his stolen pro- perty. On his release the burglaries in his neigh- bourhood re-started, with tihe sequel of yes- terda.y's fresh conviotioin.
A WONDERFUL OAK TREE Find at Glanamman The other day while Mr. Daniel Williams, builder. Glanamman, was excavating for the foundation of a new house in peaty ground a short distance east of the old Brynlloi Farmhouse, he came upon the trunk of an oak tree lying under the surface with an irregular thickness of from 9in. to Eft. of peaty soil covering it. 'ine trunk measures from the stump end to the first branching fork 42ft., with a hard black stem between 18ft and 21ft. in diameter. From the branch- ing fork up to where it has been laid bare it measures 12ft., and it is conjectured that it extends up to-an old hedge another 20ft. away. If so the total length of the tree is 74ft. All who have examined it are surprised at its wonderful size and good state of pre- servation, and the question that appeals to all is What can its age be?"
FALL OF A SIGN BOARD Merthyr Town-clerk's Lucky Escape. During the storm last night a huge sign over the premises of the Public Benefit Boot Company at Merthyr was blown down, break- ing one of the electric lamps lighting the street and injuring the wires. Mr. T. Aneuryn Reee, town-clerk, and an old inter- national, stopped at the corner of the street a few yards away to purchase a paper, or he would probably have been on the spot when it fell. No one was hurt, but the car service was interrupted. Snow fell thickly for a couple of hours this morning, followed by rain.
MANY THOUSANDS j Charge Against Solicitor At Bow-street day Thomas Montague Richards (49), a solicitor, and a former Mayor of Lambeth, was further remanded charged with fraudulently misappropriating trust moifby. An accountant, who was appointed trustee in prisoner's bankruptcy last June, said the amount of proofs lodged up to the present was over £ 10,000, but he ha.d had notice of additional claims amounting to X22,000. The assets were of the approximate value of £ 600.

"SOMETHING BURNING." DaAe last night a smell of (something burn- ing induced the caretaker at Arlington- chambers, Commercial-street, Newport to make a search. It was found that a beam over the fireplace in an office at the back of the shop of Mr. J. Phillips, corn mer- chant, had taken fire. Some of the walling had to be taken down before the fire could be fairly located and put out.

Doctor Reports Doctor. I CURIOUS RADYR CASE. I I District Council's Reproof. I At IJandaff and Dinas Powis District Council meeting this aftrnoon th Medical Officer 1 (Dr. Prichard) reported that Dr. Jules Rey, of Dinas Powis, who had been under treat- ment for scarlet fever in the Radyr Fever Hospital, had Mt before he had fully recovered from the disease, and that while in an infective condition ht had hired a public conveyance from Llandaff to take him to his home at Dinas Powis. The 6anitaxy com- mittee had direc.ted the clerk to call Dr. Rey's attention to the report and to ask for an explanation. The Clerk (Mr. M. Warren) now stated that he had received a Jetter from a friend of Dr. Rey with regard to the complaint, but it contained no satisfactory explanation. Major-general Lee said that a large amount of mischief and unbappiness to the general public might have been caused by such con- duct, and he was greatly surprised that a medical man should have been guilty of it. The Chairman said they were sorry that Dr. Rey had been Laid up with scarlet fever, but he had taken too much upon himself to go out of the hospital when in the peeling stage, and in direct contravention of the medical officer's orders. He had driven away in a public cab, and it showed the difficulty the council had in carrying out its work of safeguarding the public when even doctors acted like this. The council could recover the cost of the treatment and main- tenance of Dr. Rey at the hospital, and he suggested this be done and that the clerk express the serious displeasure of the council at the action of Dr. Rey. This suggestion was adopted unanimously. Major-general Lee said it was a good thing that their inspector had acted so promptly in thoroughly fumigating the cab. Dr. Prichard said that Dr. Rey had been, suffering for years from diabetes. and he wanted to go home in order to get suitable diet for that complaint. The Chairman said that this was no excuse, as there would be no difficulty in letting him have the food required at the hospital.
I Sunday Visitors. I I DOWLAIS LICENSEE'S APPEAL. At Glamorgan Quarter Sessions at Cardiff to-day (before Mr. O. H. Jones, Mr. R. W. Lle- wellyn, and Dr. Howell Rees) Joseph Cough- lin, licensee of the Star Inn, Dowlais, appealed against a conviction of the Mer- thyr justices, who had fined him for selling intoxicating liquors on Sunday. Mr. St. John Francis-Williams (instructed by Messrs. Gwiiym James, Charles, and Davies) was for the appellants, and Mr. John Sankey (in- j structed by Messrs. Lewis and Jones) appeared for the respondents. Police-constable Hunter and another con- stable went to the Star about 8.45 on Sunday evening, the 18th of November, and in addi- tion to relatives of the landlord there were in the house three men, named Graeney, Lewis, and Daly, who lived in the neighbour- hood. There were four empty stout bottles on the table. There were other signs of drinking. In reply to Hunter, the appellant said the men were friends of his, and had been invited to tea. The appellant said he had invited the three men to tea some time before the 18th of November. He had neither received, nor did he expect to receive, money for the drink supplied to his friends. After the evidence of Mr. Daly, one of the witnesses in support of the appellant's case, had been taken, the court allowed the. appeal, without costs. This concluded the business of the sessions.
I Cow's Tail Cut Off I I PENHOW LABOURER CHARGED 1 James King, labourer, Penhow, pleaded not guilty at Monmouthshire Quart-er Ses- sions to-day to a charge of feloniously, un. ta,wfully. and maliciously maiming a cow, the -property of E. Henry Wilmott, at Lower Meadow Farm, Penhow, on December 1. The evidence showed that the cow was found with its tail practically severed from its body, except for one small piece of skin, and, as blood was found on a hatchet the prisoner had been using laying a hedge in the same field, he was arrested and charged with the offence. He defied all knowledge of it, and said that the first time he heard of the animal being injured was when the police arrested him. (Proceeding.)
I MOUNTAIN ASH HOTEL APPEALl Reasonable Precaution Taken Mr. O. H. Jones (chairiman), Mr. R. W. Llewellyn, and Dr. Howell Sees heard an appeal at Glamorgan Quarter Sessions at Cardiff to-day by Mr. Thomas Moms, licensee of the Duffiryn Hotel, Oxford-street, Mountain Ash, who was convicted and fined 4C.s. and costs for permitting drunkenness on April 7 la.st. Mr. S. T. Evans, K.C., M.P., and Mr. Denman Benson (instructed by Mr. •Gwilym Jones, Mountain ASh) appearred for the appellant, and Mr. St. John Franeis- WiUiiams (instructed by Messrs. Lewis and Jones) were for the respondents. The evidence upon which, the conviction was obtained was as follows: About 9.45 p.m. on the 7tih of April Police-sergeant Yenn and Police-constable Elias Thomas passed the front door of the Duffryn Hotel, and saw the appellant standing in the doorway. Mr. Morris joined them, and they all went round to the vaults, where a man named Donovan was found asleep on a seat. The landlord got him to stand up, but he was so drunk that he fell. He was again placed upon his feet, with a similar result. Under the seat on which Donovan was sitting was a pint measure partly full of beer. The police- sergeant asked tihe landlord why he served a man in the condition in which. Donovan was. Tihe landlord replied, "He has not been served here. I put him out before dinner, and I have turned him out several times before." Mr. Morris, the appellant, stated that he had fTequently turned Donovan out of the house and had forbidden him to come there. He had also cautioned all the bar attend- ants not to serve him under any circum- stances. The man was not in the vaults five minutes before the police came, and he was not •served there. The pint under the seat must have been placed there by another customer. Onlly two witnesses had been called in support of the appellant's case, when the Chairman announced that it was ndt neces- sary to proceed further. The bench were perfectly satisfied that all reasonable pre-1 cautions had been taken by the appellant. The appeal would be allowed, without costs. On the application of Mr. St. John Prancds- Williaims, the Bendh made an order for the ,c the county. of the costs by the
I CRUEL RED-TAPE. Barefooted Child Sent to Court I The form of red tape which takes no account of snffe»ng was warmly denounced yesterday at the Guildhall by Mr. Alderman Alhston. Michael Hayes, seven years old, was changed with being found wandering in the streets ra,king over the gutters in search of food, and a polioeman brought him to court just as he found him, without hat or boots. He had previously taken him to the workhouse, where he was detained for the night. "Would not they put something on his feet before sending him through the streets?" the- alderman asked. "No, sir," said the policeman. "They said I must bring him here just as I found him, but as he was barefooted I brought him in a cab." "And paid for it yourself, I suppose?" said the Clerk. "Wa have had to speak of this kind of thing before," siaid the alderman. "and I should very much like to know who is responsible for sending children from the union in this deplorable state. It does seem to me th&t. at the very least, boots and stock- ing's should be lent to children who are aent to court in this inclement weather." The boy was ordered to be sent to a remand home in a cab, and the alderman ordered that the cab fare to court should be refunded to the policeman. The clerk remarked that the double cab fare would pay for a very good pair of bo-ots for the child. i

WELSH OR NO WELSH I The Cardiff Plebiscite. I VOTES COUNTED TO-DAY. Cymmrodorion and British Leaguers of Cardiff assembled at the Western Mail" office this afternoon for the purpose of counting the votes of Cardiff parents on the question of compulsory Welsh teaching in the schools of the city. The plebiscite was organised by the "Western Mail," and officially recognised by the Cymmrodorion Society and the British League, the two bodies chiefly interested in the matter. Alderman Robert Hughes, the president of the Cymmrodorion Society, was unable to attend, and was deputised by Councillor W. L. Yorath, who was supported by Mr. Lovell, treasurer of the society, Mr. R. E. Jones, Mr. J. Martin Jones, Mr. Tom John, and other prominent Cardiff Welshmen. The Lord Mayor (Mr. W. s. Crossman) was present during the count. Mr. F. J. Veall, the president of the British League, was supported by Mr. C. W. Melhuish, Mr. Sant, Mr. A. W. Harry, Mr. J. Oompton Hunt, and several others. Ten bags of reply cards were handed over under seal by the Cardiff pootmaeer--one hag for each ward in the caty. It was agreed, on the suggestion of Mr. "Veall, to take the wards separately, and that a Cymmrodor should sit opposite a Leaguer at the counting table. In this way perfect fairness was ensured.

Veall moved a vote of thanks to the proprietors of the "Western Mail" for the trouble and expense they had incurred in making the plebiscite, which had been con- ducted in a perfectly fair and honourable way and with, strict impartiality. The "Western Mail" was animated with the' one desire to get at the truth, and the result of their efforts in that directdon was known to them all. Mr. Lovell (treasurer of the Cardiff Cymm- rodorion) seconded, and endorsed the senti- ments of Mr. Veall, and said the "Western Mail," with characteristic thoroughnea?, bad done the whole thing handsomely, and they were all perfectly satisfied with the fairness of the plebiscite. Mr. W. L. Yorath supported, a.nd said the "Western Mail" did not trouble about the expense as long as the truth of the whole thing was ascertained. Where any subject excited the interest of the people of Cardiff the "Western Mail" was always to the front. The vote Was carried with acclamation, and acknowledged by Mr. E. H. Crafter, who said there could be no dispute as to the fairness with which the voted had been counted and checked. On the motion of M-r. W. T. Beavan, seconded by Mr. Compton Hunt, a cordial. vote of thanks. was accorded Mr. H. E. Sfpenoeley, the Cardiff poet master, and his staff for the trouble they had taken in the matter. =
A DRINK FOR BOBBY." lAbertillery Landlord Cautioned Edwin Adams, landlord of the Prince of Wales Hotel, Abertillery, was summoned at the police-court to-day for supplying a con- stable with whisky whilst on duty on December 22, to which lhe pleaded guilty. Mr. Lyndon Cooper, Newport, appeared for the defendant. Inspector Lewis stated that on the date named, at about twelve o'clock in the morn- ing, he saw a constable ring the electric bell and receive a small bottle of whisky. Wit- ness asked tihe landlord why he supplied him with drink whilst on duty, and he replied that (he t-hought he had just gone off duty. Later in the same morning he asked that the matter Should be overlooked. i y,r. Cooper, for the defence, pointed out that what was done was not with the inten- tion of bribing the police. His client had only been in the hotel about ten weeks. It was a tied house, and his savings were all invested in it, as it cost him about P,300 to get possession. He asked the bench not to record a conviction, as the case would be met on payment of costs. The case was dismissed, and the defendant was ordered to pay costs, the Chairman remarking that they hoped it would be a warning to other licensed victuallers. Defendant had rendered himself liable to a fine of £ 10. during the heading it transpired that the police-con stable was suspended immediately after the incident, and had since been dis- missed from the force.
"OH, DEAR NO I CERTAINLY NOT' An adjournment was asked for by the police at Mountain Ash Police-court to- day of a case against George Dance, sum- moned for being drunk on licensed premises at the Collier's Arms, Mountain Ash. At the last court the case against the land- lord of the Collier's Arms was dismissed, the stipendiary being out-voted by his two col- leagues on the bench. Mr. Charles Kenshole, who appeared for the defence asked if, having, regard to the whole circumstances of the case and the fact that the case against the house had been dismissed and the man had been put to considerable inconvenience, the case ?uld not be withdrawn. The Stipendiary: Oh, dear no! certainly not. You can have it uJourned to next Tuesday at Aberdare. I will have the whole bench, can if they come, to try it. The case was ultimately adjourned to the 22nd.
N.U.T.-ITES. I The confetrence of head teachers at Leam- ington was continued to-day. The morning was occupied with a discus- c-ion on the proposals to abolish the age limit for entry into the higher elementary schools, and in favour of sanction being refused to mixed departments in schools of more than 300 scholars. Dr. O'Connor, of London, gave a lecture on "Esperanto," and aninounoed he had received a message from King Edward wishing him success in his work.
FATHER AND SON AT PONTYPRIDD I A painful case was investigated by the Pontypridd magistrates to-day, in which Richard Griffiths, a collier, 5, Tymawr-rpad, Hopkinstown, summoned his son, Richard Griffiths, for assault. Mr. Wayne Morgan appea,red for the complainant, and Mr. A. T. James for the defence. Before hearing the evidence the Stipen- diary suggested that the solicitors had better try to come to an arrangement, but they were unable to do so. In evidence it transpired there had been family differences, the complainant alleging that his food was not properly prepared, and his wife was attempting to poison him. Owing to a dispute on the subject it was alleged the defendant struck his father on the temple and on the ear, felling him to the ground. Mr. Arthur Lewis again appealed to the advocates, and the summons was withdrawn.

RAILWAY CRASH IN AMERICA A Renter's telegram from Kansas this afternoon states that a terrible railway accident occurred this morning on the I Chicago, Rock Island, and Pacific Rail- way. Twenty were killed and twenty injured.
Scottish Railway Smasn CONDITION OF THE INJURED At Arbroath Infirmary this morning it was reported that H. A. Allen, whose case is regarded as most serious, had maintained yesterday's improvement, and David Christie was no worse. The boy, M'Carrion Constable, Beattie, William Fitchet, and Miss Porter are progressing favourably. I are progressing favonrably. Public Inquiry Demanded Major Pringle will resume the private in- quiry at Dundee to-day. There is some feeling in Arbroath that a public inquiry should also be held, and it is probable a representation by leading citizens will be made to this effect. The Arbroath magistrates, at a Epecial meetimg to-day, agreed to wire to the Board of Trade protesting against the inquiry into the railway disaster at Elliott Junction being held in private. The Imprisoned Driver An application was renewed to Sheriff Campbell Smith at Dundee to-day to liberate on bail George Gourlay, driver of the express train. in. the Elliot Ra-ilway disaetetr, who is with culpable homicide. The Crow-a authorities held that the taocused's continuance in prison was necessary for purposes of identification, and that, as several of the injured a.re still in the in- firmarv. more deaths might ensue, and the charge assiume even a more serious form. Gourlay's local solicitor contended that there was urgemcy, as the accused waeiU amd required medical attention. He ha^d been in the railway service 47 years without a blemish on his character, and was willing to lodge substantial bail. The sheriff did not wish, until further recognitions had been made, to act in opposition to the Crowm authorities desire, and decided that the application for bail stand over for two days, or till Saturday morning.

MONMOUTHSHIRE'S TOUR I I Match at Limerick I Monmouthshire played their second and concluding match of their Irish tour this afternoon, when they met a strong fifteen representing Garryowen, at Limerick, in showery weather. Teanis:- Monmouthshire: Back, James; three-quar- ter back., Bowen, Jones, Eva.ns, and Wat kins; half-backs, Vile and Beynon; for- wards, Webb, Thomas, B la k em ore, Williams, Dykes, Watkins, Preece, and Thatcher. Garryowen: Back, Quilligan; three-quarter backs, M'Gill, James O'Connor, Connell, and Brinn; half-backs, Joseph O'Connor and Fogerty; forwards, O'Donnell, Power, Clancy, Leonard, Halpin, Keyes, M'Oarthy, and M'Conkey. Referee: Mr. R. Lynch, Limerick. Garryowen started, and from a rush at once assumed the aggressive, but Evan Watkins quickly drove them back with a grand kick. The home forwards went off with a terrific rush, which James stopped, and a moment later the Monmouth forwards relieved finely. Soon, however, the Garry- owen men went off with another headlong rush, which carried play close to the visitors' goal, and in a scramble Leonard scored a try, which was not converted. Half-time score: G. T. Pts. Monmouthshire 1 2 11 Garryowen 0 1 3 With, play in neutral territory Beynon received well from Vile, and, with a dashing nin, went through, the home defence and scored a really grand try, Evans converting. Garryowen attacked on the re-start through rushing tactics, but Vile and Watkins defended grandly, and a rush, headed' by Wolfa and Dykes, took play to neutral terri- tory. Bowen, however, picked up from a fine cross-kick by Watkins and ran over with a grand try.
CARDIFF v. PLYMOUTH SCHOOLBOYS Welsh City Lads' Good Form This game--i re-played English Cup-tie— was played on the Harlequin's Ground, Cardiff this afternoon. The Cardiff boys having qualified themselves to participate in this cup-tie competition met Plymouth in the first round at Plymouth on December 12, the result b-eing a draw, nothing being scored. Cardiff played exactly the same team as that which represented them on the' first occasion, and Plymouth also relied on their sa,me players. The attendance was rather discounagunig, and the ground was on the soft side. 'l'he referee was Mr. J. L. Lee, Swindon. Te-amis:- Cardiff: Goad, Francomibe; backs, Beanies and Brimer; 'half-backs, Jeans, Fearby, and C. Thomas; forwards, Keenor, Parr, Harring- ton, Evans, and Bishop. The opening stages were sensational, for Flood aind H. Edwards; half-backs, T. Bren- ton, Willia-in Ohappell? and C. Croft; for- wards, A. Simons, J. Weaver, F. Sincock, A. M'Dona,ld, and T. Morey. The opening stages were sensational for each side registered two goals in the first fifteen minutes. Plymouth scored first tbroiigh M'Donald. Cardiff forwards then rushed matters, and bottling uip Flood and Edwards, Bishop equalised, matters after P,a,rr had feebly tested Vicary. Brimer got his side penalised by fouling Simons when the latter had a fine dhance, but they were amply compensated for Morey got home the seoond goal from the free-kick. Prellty play followed from footh sides, and pla.y was equally divided, bJt had the Cardiff forwards I been a little more adaptable to the prevail- ing conditions nothing could have saved the Plymouth goal, for their combined play absolutely 4eat Flood and Vicary. Parr was prominent for stylish but selfish play. Cardiff were one behind, but, continued to play finely. PLYMOUTH WERE PENALISED, and Cardiff were awarded a free, which was placed nicely in the goal-mouth. Here excitement beoame inten&e, each of the Plymouth boys being at hand when wanted, and, after olea-ring their goal at least four times in succession, Jeans sent in a, stinger, which evidently took Vicary by surprise. In tihe closing stages of the first half the Cardiff forwards were wofuily weak in front of goal. Half-time score: Goals. Cardiff ?0 2 P'lym?u't.h ￼ ￼ Plymouth 2, _I Despite the flaot that mymoutn played wit-n the wind in this half, Cardiff quickly got down to their goal throuigih the efforts of Keenor, who dribbiled smartly. A free to Plymouth failed to give them relief, and then two chances were thrown away by the Cardiff wings, Bishop and Keenor, each in their eagerness, getting offside. Although Jeans nipped in nicely, the Plymouth for- wards beat the Cardiff defence, and an anxious time for the Cardiff team, was ended by Sin-cock heading a wee bit outside the goiaQ- Bishop was aoeidently fouied, and Cardiff got in a nice position for the free, but just as the Cardiff forwards were doing well, Brenton dashed throught and broke uip the attack. In less than five minutes, however, Cardiff were at it again, and Harrington beat Vicary with a cross shot. Plymouth re-doubled their efforts, and Bren- ton especially, was h'a.rd at work. FranoOimloo saved nicely from a high, shot, but once more the Cardiff defence was tested, and Thomas -& brave little youngester-dashed into the Plymouth wing, and in his eagerness to pre- vent Brentone from centring, was thrown heavily into touch. The Plyomuth forwards were not makin.g the best of their chances, a.nd Weaver lost yet another opportunity and was fearfully hustled by Beames, the Cardiff back, who sweipt through half the Plymouth team with the ball at his toes. Towards the close Plymouth attacked hotly, and were continually pottering around the Cardiff goal. Weaver, Sineoek, and M Donald each tried hard, but t,he Oardiff defence was not found wanting. Two minutes from the finish it certainly was odd.. on Plymouth equalising, and then when Brenton shot grandly everyone thought that Plymouth had scored, but the lad put too much screw on the ball which actually rufbbed the off up- -rizht.. « n Final eoore: uoais. I Cardiff 3 Plymouth, COMMENTS. Seeing that Cardiff were able to make a draw with Plymouth, it was but natural that opinion favoured the Cardiff lads of being capable of securing a win on their own ground, and the one goal which separated the sum total of their points proves con- clusively the advantages a team possesses when playing a.t home. The league showed an enterprising sparit by entering for the English cup-tie, and now by beating Plymouth they have qualified for the third round, when their opponents will be Swindon. The Cardiff teachers firmly beiieve that- their "youmgaters" will annex the trophy, and that the Cardiff boys have a splendid chance 110 one will deny. Swindon will be met at home—o<n the Harlequins' mund-on January 26, and the local boys have already proved to-day that they are at least a goal to the good on their own ground. The Cardiff boys played finely, the halved- Jeans, Fearby, and O. Thomas—being espe- cially prominent Cardiff's win was emtunel, y due to the fine play of these boys, and C. Thomas was with- out doubt the pluckiest player on the field. The Gardiff forwards were a good line, Keenor and Parr on the right wing being very- tricky, and the left wing and inside in com- parison were a trifle slow. That- the Plymouth boys are possessed of an abundance of pluck was oleriy shown at the end of the game, when t.hey kept pegging a.t the Cardiff goal, and the most conspicuous of this lot were Brenton, Edwards, and Money.
Final-Manchester City, 3; Middlesbrough, 1. Half-time-Bolton Wanderers, 1; Preston North End, 0. Final—Wigan, 37 points; Liverpool, 3 points.

GOLFING FOOTBALLERS. I Glamorganshire v. Radyr I In a heavy downpour of rain and hail- stones the Glamorganshire and Padtyr Golf Clubs took a turn at football-on the Penarth ground to-day. The proceeds were in aid of the Victoria Nurses' Institute, and attracted a number of supporters of both sides. Both teams fielded short of men, but among those out were some who had not donned the jersey and knicks for some years, who included Herbie Morgan, Selwyn Biggs, H. O. Beasley, J. ibbs, and Dr. Boyd. The teams lined out thus :— Glamorganshire: Back, C. Turn burn; three- quarter backs, H. E. Morgan, R. Turnbull, H. O. Baasley, and J. Gibbs; half-backs, R. Gibbs and Selwyn Biggs; forwards, R. A. Ferguson, T. Jones, J. Wynn, W. Young, J. Stranaghan, C. Bedford, and M. Gottwaltz. Radyr: Back, Bostock-Smith; three-quarter backs, P. G. Swan, R. Pritoharo, P. J. Evens, and Roy Thomas; half-backs, Dr. J. Boyd and A. Robertson; forwards, W. H. Ball (captain), T. Howell, R. Haslam, C. Cook, P. Nash, and T. Blackmore. Referee, Mr. E. Hamilton, Penarth. Glamorgan were first to press, and nearly scored afttr a bout of passing. Radyr, how- ever, defended their line well and Turnbull brought relief with a long kick to the centre. The game at tiraes "became exceedingly funny, and was apparntly much enjoyed by the spectators, who roared with laughter. After a lot of splashing in a quagmire Gottwaltz scored, but the kick for goal was a failure. Just before the interval R. Turn- bull got ovtr for Glamorgan. Half-time score: G. T. P'ts. I Glamorganshire 0 2 0 P.adyr 0 0 0 The game re-opened briskly, but although Glamorgan presstd they fai. to score. Once Herbie Morgan tried one of his old-time drop kicks, but although he shaped well, the ball didn't. Then the leather came back to Reggie Gibbs, who in atttmpting to field it slipped on his back for at least three or four yards. Beasley then secured and got over in the corner. The kick again failed. Radyr then pressed, and Furgerson just managed to dump Evens into a miniature lake. To wind up, Reggie Gibbs gave one of his grand dribbles and beat Bostock-Smith, scoring the last try of the match. Final eoore: G. T. Pts. I GIamorgan 0 4 12 I P.adyr 0 0 0
