The Story of the Scrutiny "Prodigious!" as old Dominie Sampson used to say. "Prodigious!! Prodigious! This is the adjective which most aptly describes the task of counting the coupons eent in to our office by the readexs of the Evening Express" in connection with the scheme evolved as a means of ascertaining the' ideal Welsh international team in the opinion of the public of South Wales. When all the circumstance^ are recollected, ohe closeness of the competition is astonishing for hundreds of competitors had fourteen names right, a;nd thousands had oorrectly prognosticated thirteen of the fifteen players in "The Ideal Welsh Team." As things panned out, it seemed in the early stages of the counting process that no one was going to forecast all the fifteen pLayers in the ideal team, and many soores of coupons with fourteen correct ftmtwtixwiB had already been laid carefully aside, with the eventuality in view that no one had sent in a list that was absolutely right in every way. It was an exciting moment when at last one of the counters announced that he had discovered a coupon on which was inscribed the cognomens of all the fifteen players in the ideal team. This fortu- nate competitor proved to be Mr. J. W. R. Cranton, of Newport. Thereafter, of course, all those who had sent in only fourteen correct names were entirely out of the running. The task now was to ascertain if any others had sent in prognos- tications correct in every instance, and for quite a. long time Mr. Oranton held the field Unchallenged. As the list above shows, however, there were others who had correctly prophesied, and with a rapidity that was astonishing, in view of the previous tantalising uncertainty. the coupons of the three Cardiff competitors and Mr. Walter Jones, Fochriw, were happened upon. Thousands of coupons yet remained un- checked, and gradually these were cast aside until only a dozen envelopes were left un- opened. Some mathematician among the counters then calculated that the chances were a million to one against another coupon being found with all the names correct. But the million to one chance came off. Of the last dozen envelopes the coupons in six had been extracted and discarded as valueless. Then in the seventh the correct one Bent in by Mr. J. Phillips, of Cardigan, waa found, and, with the remainder of no value, there were left six competitors to divide the X20 prize between them. Eaoh of the half-dozen will thus receive a cheque for 13 66. 8d. One of the surprising features of the com- petition was the number of competitors who had all the members of the back division right, but stumbled in the case of a single forward by including a man who had no reasonable chance of getting into the ideal team. The mistake was oftanest made by the choice oft George Boots J. J. Hodges, Sergeant Fred Smith, A. BrIce. and. J. Casey, it is difficult to feel sympathy for these competitors, for they should really have known better, while at the same time admitting that all these five men would do credit to their oooiutry's cause in the field of sport. An evidence of the seriousness with which Welshmen regard Rugby football was found in the fact that only two allegedly humorous coupons were sent in. On one of these the competitor had indited the names of fifteen well-known Cardiff docksmen, and on the other John Brown and Dai Jones were given as the half-backs, with Dicky Owen as "lock" of the scrimmage, &c.
TRIAL OF HARRY THAW Sensationa I Development Several New York papers reported on Sum. day that a sensational discovery has been made with reference to one of the jurors in the Thaw trial. An apparently authenti- cated report states that Mr. Henry Harney, a. piano dealer, who was the fifth man selected last Thursday week, is the father of Maisie Follette, the chorus girl who was called as a witness aga.inst ,Thaw. Maisie Follette, who was in the chorus of Miss Anna Held's Company, which Played "The Little Duchess in 1903, was a comrade of Mrs. Harry Thaw, who at that time- was not married, and wag in t'he same company. Miss Follette was a great friend of Mr. Stanford White, and was sum- moned as a witness by the prosecution, because it was believed that she was in pos- session of evidence bearing upon the rela- tions of the two men. The opening of the session is looked: for- ward to with immense eagerness on this account, when, if the statement made by the papers is true, Harney will be released from the jury and another selected. According to a statement by Mr. A. R. Peabody, one of the prisoner's counsel, the trial of Harry Thaw will take not less than three weeks, commencing with this (Mon- day) afternoon, when the defence will be opened.-Central. News. While prison rules do not permit Sunday visitors, Mr. Thaw was allowed to confer* for half an hour on Sunday with his oounsel, who report their client in better spirits than since the trial began. The wardere declare that he was less nervous than previously, a.nd that he ate heartily and attended the Divine services.

'JAM AND CABBAGES.' • I MARRIED WOMEN AND THE ANGLESEY CURATE 'The Kiss of Welcome. AMAZING ALLEGATIONS Remarkable allegations were made against an Anglesey curate at a Consistory Court; held at Bangor on Saturday. The Rev. Phinees Payson Hughes, curate of Llaneinwen, was charged with kissing and acting x improperly towards two married women living in his parish. The Chancellor of the diocese (Mr. J. E. Vincent) presided, being accompanied as assessors by Mr. Osmond WiUiams, M.P., Mr. Ephraim Wood, Archdeacon John Morgan, Canon Hughes, and the Rev. R. Evans (Llan- idan). Mr. Thornton Jones appeared for the bishop to conduct the prosecution, and the accused was represented by Mr. H. Lloyd Carter. At the start of the case Mr. Thornton Jones applied to strike out two of the charges and substitute one of drunkenness at Carnarvon Ferry in May, 1904. The Chancellor struck out the two charges j mentioned, but refused to allow a fresh charge to be sprung upon defendant. Preachers and Ladies: Chaste Osculatory Salutes Mr. Thornton Jones said that the defen- dant was ordained deacon in 1881 and priest in 1883, and since that year he had been curate of Llangeinwen. The first charge against him was that between January and March, 1906, the defendant behaved in an immoral manner towards a, young married woman who lived at Dewyran, and whose story was that on the day of the polling for the general election in Anglesey she was in the defendant's lodgings, having a letter written for her, when he tried to ivies her. She was in delicate health at the time. Some weeks later the woman visited the defendant again on a similar errand, having her young baby on her arm, and the defendant repeated his previous conduct. Her husband informed the defendant of the incidents, and the latter told him that it was customary in America for preachers to kiss laaies when they entered their houses as a sign of welcome. The other case was that of another married womam, at Talysarn, Dewyran. The defen- damt frequently visited her house, and in order to discourage him she several times told him that her husband was in the house, which was untrue. He attempted to behave improperly, and by way of Inducement gave her some jam and vegetables to take to her husband. She complained to her husband, and her husband spoke to the defendant, who asked him to shake hands, and hopod that everything would be all right. In con- clusion, Mr. Thornton Jones observed that there was no suggestion of blackmail on the part of the two women. | Phoebe's Story The firat evidenoe tendered was by Phoebe Hughes, who said that she w as a married j woman, and would be seventeen yea,rs of age next birthday. On the day of the polling for Anglesey election last year the Rev. Phinees Hughes called at her house and asked if she had received her wages from Oaerffridd, where she was in service before marriage. He then told her that he would write a. letter for her, and invited her to go to his lodgings for that purpose the same evening after six o'clock. She accordingly went, and the letter was written. She was about to leave the house when he gave her 21b. of (sugar. Having opened the door of the lobby for her, h ut his arm round her neck and for hIC wher, whereupon she pushed him till he nearly fell. Some time after the birth of her child he called for her again, and she went in the morning, Mr. Hughes being alone in the house. After she had taken a Mr. Hughes gave her baby a shilling, and proceeded to write another letter about the wages, but before he had finished the letter he put hia hand on her knee and remarked, "You are nursing very well." He also put his arm around her neck and attempted to kiss her, when she suddenly jumped up with the view of leaving. But the accused ob- structed her, and as she tried to make her way among the furniture he again attempted to assault her, but partly failed. His con- duct considerably upset her, but he begged of her not to gay anything to her husband. Cross-examined by Mr. Carter, witness said she did not go to live with her husband before her marriage. She was under sixteen years of age when she married. Her ohild. was born less than a month after her mar- riage. Husband's Complaints William Hughes, husband of the last wit- ness, was next called, and, in reply to Mr. Thornton Jones, said he was a shoemaker. He had been friendly with the defendant till he disturbed his wife, and used to work for him. Did you do anything else for himP-No; only carry drink for him. He said he had complained to the defen- dant about his conduct to Mrs. Hughes, and t,old him he was astonished at his conduct to his wife that morning. And what did defendant say?—He said, "Nothing indecent, Mr. Hughes, was it?" I asked him if it was decent or indecent for him to take hold of any man's wife. And what did he say to that?-He said, Oh, William Hughes, bach, it is the custom in America to kiss married women like single women by way of welcome." Did he say anything further, or make any request to you?—I told him he had done much worse than that. When I said that, he said if I repeated that he would put me in the hands of the law. He was with me for an hour or two afterwards along the road, trying to persuade me not to make a bother about it. Has he been with you at all sinoo these proceedings commenced?—Yes. Besides complaining to the curate. did you go to the rector?- Y es. Did you complain of the conduct of the curate ?-Yea. And did he give you anything?—Yee. Cross-examined Did you complain .to the defendant about his trying to kiss your wife? —No. Why?-I didn't like to make a bother. Its like this: I am poor, and he might have taken proceedings. Then, why the second time? Witness: Because he had gone much further the second time. The defendant denied to witness having done anything worse than try to kiss his wife. "Jam and Cabbages." MTS. Ellen Jones, Talyaarn, Dewyran, was next called and questioned by Mr. Thornton Jones. She said she was the wife of Ellis Jones, a small farmer. She was forty years of age. The defendant was the curate of her parish. He used to come to her house when her husband was out. Did you ever invite him into the house willingly?—No, never. What was your objection to ask him in like another friend?—He used to pass by me into the house when I stood at the door. He used to drag me into the house with him. He had also attempted to assault her. And that is the reason for your disinclina- tion to allow him into your house?—Yes. Has he ever said anything to you about his lodgings?—Yes. He wanted me to go there when Mrs. Edwards (defendant's land- lady) was not in, and he would give me jam for myself and cabbages for my husband. I was to have the jam and Ellis Jones the cabbages. (Laughter.) Did you accept the invitation.?—No. WhY?-Becawe he wanted me to go to see his bedroom and the nice place he had. Did you ever complain to your husband about defendant's conduct?—Yes. 13UC Ellis Jones would hardly believe it at first that he would so such things. Defendant had asked her to accompany him to Carnarvon. For how Icyn.g ?—Go by the first steamer, and come back by tihe last. Did he come to your house after your hus- band had complained to him?—No. Did you ever see him. give your children money?—les, majiy times. Cl^Xrird V had not complained to anybody besides her husband. She had told defendant not to come into her house, but he said he would not do any narm. Why didn't you order him out the first time he did .frach a thing-?—He would not go. Was I'8. Edwards ill when he asked you to go there?—Yes. Then she was in the house?—Yes. as fair as I know. And do you want us to believe that he invited you to his bedroom?—Yes. And Mrs. Edwards was in the house ill"— Yes, but he was asking me to go there when Mrs. Edwards was away from home. You were living with your husband when you married?—Yes. And you had a child by him shortly after your marria, And had you two children before you were niaxT!od?-Yes. Who was the father of your first child? Did you affiliate it?—No. Did you affiliate your second child?—Yes. And who was the father of your second child?—My husband's brother. He-examined: It was more than ten or twelve years since she had those children. I Could Not Shake Hands I 7,IIU J&BO. husband of the last witmkm, waal next called. Mr. Thornton Jones: Did your wife make ? a statement to yon with reference tA?-M,r ? Hughes, curate ?—Yes, many times, but I could hardly believe her, and I took it inno- cently and did not interfere. But what made you ultimately go to Mr. Hughes to complain? My conscience, I think, more than anything else. He was passing by the gate, and I went up the road to meet him, and he came to shake hands with me, but I said to him: Mr. Hughes, I can't sihakte hands with you to-day; I am vexed with you for ever." "For w'h&t reason?" he said. I naid, "You know very well; for what you have done in my house with my wife." And I went with, him towa,rds his lodgings. Then I put my back against the wall and I said to him: "You j know very well what you have been doing in my house with my wife." "What have I been doing?" he asked. I said that "every time I went from home about the corn harvest you used to pay visits to my house and molest my wife." "What do you mean by molesting her?" he said to me. "Coming to my house, putting your arms round her neck, and kissing her," I said "You deny that to my face? If you do I will go to Maesporth and cee Mr. Jones, the rector, and I to Carnarvon to engage a. solicitor." "I can't deny it," he said, "but I did not mean any barm." I said, "You have been I trymg your best to assault her, and he said, "Oh, Mr. Jones, but I can't deny it." Another thing I told him was that he had I been trying to persuade my wife to go to Carnarvon with him all the summer and stay there ten or twelve hours with him. "What would you do with my wife for ten or twelve hours, in Carnarvon?" I said to him. "Oh, nothing," he said, "only fun—hwyl, round, and round, and round." I said to him, You said to my wife No one will think anything of our going to Carnarvon together.' You were telling me that no one would think anything of it. Why, if I were mad and ready to go to Denbigh, I should be ready to think something of it. I would think something seeing you going with my wife to Carnarvon and leaving me and the little children here. You did ask her, didn't you?" Oh, yes, and I wouldn't mind asking the wife of the schoolhouse the same, and I don't see any harm in it." You have been trying as much as you could to persuade her to go to your lodgings when Mrs. Edwards was not at home. You said you would give her jam for herself and a cabbage or two for me if she would only go and let you show her your bedroom when there was only the two of you together." "Yes," he said, "but I did not mean any harm." "When I was about to leave him to go home," continued Mr. Jones, in his deep, strong voice, he asiied me if I would shake hands with him. He said, I hope to God the matter won't pain you any further, Mr. Jones, and I will never pass through your gate again if you will say nothing more a,bout it.' Have you ever had any quarrel with defen- dant apart from this?—'No; I was never more friendly with anyone than I was with Mr. Hughes. "Conscience Took Six Weeks." I Cross-examined: There was no one present during that conversation, but he had a witness who saw them talking together. He did not complain at onoe, because he was entirely unsuspicious of defendant, and did not for a moment think that Mr. Hughes, a friend of his, would do anything of the kind. Asked why he had allowed a whole month to pass before he said a word to the clergyman, the witness replied, "Now, you shall have the truth," and proceeded to tay that one day when he was standing with his wife at tlie gate defendant appeared, and she asked him to speak to him on the subject, and then went .indoors, and left him to deal with the curate. "Tut," I said to myself, "what will this curate do? I don't think he will do any harm," and so he did not eay a word to the curate on the subject. It was his conscience that finally impelled him to speak to the curate. And your conscience took six weeks to make you make up your mind? At this moment Mr. Jones, the rector, who had been moving restlessly behind the wit- ness, ejaculated with a laugh, "Six weeks before he could make up his mind!" Mr. Thornton Jones: Mr. Jones, that is a very uncalled-for remark, and a great con- tempt of court. The Rector: I beg your pardon, sir; it was quite a EIip on my part. I am very sorry. I ought not to have spoken. The Chancellor (severely): You had better go away from there. The rector then moved away to the other end of the room. After further examination Mr. Thornton Jones intimated that his case was closed. The Chancellor: Then we must adjourn. Mr. Thornton Jones: la that inevitable, sir? The Chanc or: Quite. The aesesors want to go home. I am quite willing to sit till midnight. Mr. Osmond Williams, M.P., said he was. too, and if necessary would sit the whole of the next week, rather than hurry a case like this when a man was fighting for hie life, as the defendant practically was. Mr. Carter intimated that he would prefer an adjournment, as he would like either to bring Mrs. Edwards as witness or get her affidavit. It was finally decided to adjourn till next week.
Death After the Funeral I NEYLAND MAN'S FILIAL DEVOTION: I GRIM SEQUEL Mr. J. H. Coram, Neyland House, Neyland, died suddenly at Newcastle-Emlyn on Satur- day night. He had gone to attend his father's funeral, took cold, and died in a few days. Another telegram states that the funeral took place on the 22nd ult. Deceased appeared quite hale and hearty for several days after his arrival, but he was seized with a somewhat severe illness in a day or two after tne funeral, which his friends and relations put down to a cold, and on the Monday following he was much better, and took a walk to see some old friends. A relapse was the result, and on Saturday an alarming change was observed, and death from erysipelas followed about eight p.m. The suddenness of the sad occurrence caused quite a consternation amongst the inhabitants generally, and much sympathy is felt for the widow, his three children, and all the family in their sad bereavement. Deceased was 59 years of age, and was the principal member of the old and well-known firm of Messrs. Corams, Neyland. He had prominently identified himself with the commercial life of Neyland and other shipping towns for over 40 years, and had acted as J.P. for Pembrokeshire, and filled many other important positions in the county for a long period. By the death of Mr. Henry Ooram many will have lost a worthy friend and bene- factor. The mortal remains of the deceased were conveyed by train from Newcastle- Emlyn to Neyland this morning. The funeral, which is to be a public one, will take place at Neyland Cemetery on Wed- I nesday at 2.30 p.m.
Monmouthshire Coal." I II CARDIFF PARLIAMENTARYCOMMITTEE TAKES ACTION Cardiff Parliamentary Committee, presided over by the Lord Mayor (Mr. W. S. Crossman), to-day considered a draft p-etition against the Alexandra (Newport) and South Wales Docks and Railway Bill. The clause which is mainly objected to is Clause 20, which states that the Ijopdon and North Western, Great Western, and Merthyr Tydvil Junction Railway Companies shall afford all reasonable facilities for goods and mineral traffic over their lines at rates per mile not greater than the lowest rate which shall for the time being be charged by the aforesaid companies for like trajo to Car- diff, Penarth, and Barry. The petition states that this and other clauses in the Bill are inequitable and unrea- sonable, and likely to produce results preju- dicia.1 to the traders, merchants, and inhabi- tants of Oardiff. While the company demanded facilities from and to their docks at Newport at rates per mile not greater than the lowest ra-teo to a.nd from Cardiff, there was no counter- YMling obligation put upon the company. The petitioners point out that a.t the pre- sent time coal was carried to Newport from the Glamorganshire ooalfieid past Cardiff to the detriment of that c't? and port in direct violation of the prin?tpio ?<?. u,< in Clause 20 of the bill in case tlie ooa-i came from Monmouthshire. Ald-erman Oarey asked if ilt wa* a fac that coal passed Cardiff for shfc-snr at Newport. The Illown-clerk said the facto were ob- I tained from gentlemen engaged in the trade. 1f..r. Beavan said the matter wr.,3 one of great, importance. The petif.iou was adopted. It was decided also to petition in favour of the Great.

Anglo-Indian Match. I PARSEE & HIS GRANDMOTHER-IN-LAW I I Numerous Complaints I The hearing was resumed in the High Court on Saturday of the aetim in which Mrs. Julia Peroival Hall, living at 196, CromweH-road, Kensington, sued Mr. Oor- setj-ee N. Wadi a., a Pareee, who is a. wealthy cotton manufacturer in Bombay, to recover £ 3,790 for alleged breach of agreement. Mrs. Hall's case was that in June, 1903, when the defendant was about to marry her granddaughter, Miss Julia Augusta Madelenie Languist, it was agreed that he should pay L900 annually for seven years, and that plain- tiff should in consideration ta.ke a, lease of 196, Cromwell-road, and provide defendant and his vrife with a suite of rooms and board and attendance. In 1905 defendant refused to be bound by the agreement, and now set out in answer to the action numerous complaints, which were stated to the court seriatim by plain- tiff's counsel, Mr. Duke. 1. life was not served in a private room with early dinner when he required it. ¡ 2. When he and his wife, wishing to go to the theatre, asked for early dinner they were told the request was impertinence. 3. A servant was not specially engaged to wait on defendant and his wife. 4. The clothes of defendant and his wife were not well looked after. 5. Once he was himself obliged to carry his bag upstairs. His Lordship: That in itself was nothing, but if it were part of a. Studied Course of Neglect such as King Lear experienced at the hands of his daughters, that would be another matter. The explanation, Mr. Duke said, was that defendant came home late one day from a race meeting or some place of the kind, and took his bag upstairs. (Laughter.) 6. The plaintiff and her daughter oome- times sat down to meals before defendant and his wife arrived. His Lordship: That would be exceedingly disagreeable if there were guests. 7. The plaintiff aid her daughter some- times began meals before the time arranged, and were frequently grumbling about expenses. His Lordship: People in such a, position should behave cheerfully. Mr. Duke: It is, of course, possible to make people's lives unbearable by pin-pricks, but I say that these matters are trivialities. The defendant also alleged that the plain- tiff did not give facilities for Social Entertainment Counsel read the letter in which Mr. wadia proposed to bring the arrangement to an end: Bombay. My dear Grandma,—When we arranged that the two families should share one house, iv,- both wished for our mutual htippiness. We did not want to put an additional burden on you. You only charged a sum that would balance yout accounts. Unfortunately, matters have not turned out as we hoped, and separation is un- avoidable. I stand on one side of the breach, and you and yours on the other. The breach is daily growing wider. There is no other course but to determine it The joint establishment cannot possibly continue. I feel that when our present menage is ended our former friendship will bo resumed I do not wish to hurry you in any way. I think that, whatever tihe determination is, it will bo an amicable one. Counsel called attention to passages from letters written by Mr. Wadia to Sir M. Bhownaggree, formerly M.P. for Bethnal Green, whom he called, My Dear Poppa Bellavista, Bombay. My Dear Poppa,—How does our autocrat? As to myself, I am well and as happy as absence from Cromwell-road will permit me. The Judge: It is ridiculous to My that that shows he was not happy away fiom his grandmother-in-law. Another extract was: Dear Old Poppa,-The only thing that is worrying me is the leaving of Daisy alone amid circumstances that conspire that she leads a lonely and almost friendless life. The interest of housework is not here, and there is nothing to fill the void. I see no possible solution to so complex a problem. The Judge: That is a very sensible letter. The hearing of the oaae was adjourned.
DONKEY CART AS HEARSE. I A remarkable story of boycotting in Ire- land comes from the quiet little village of Derrygonnelly, about eight miles from Enniskillen. A year or two ago Mrs. Burns, a widow, acquired a small farm in the adjoining mountain district of Roogagh, where she resided with her son. vhe former tenant had been evicted, and a boycott was immediately commenced of those who had entered upon the lands. The neighbours refused to have anything to do in a friendly way with Mrs. Burns and her son. The unpleasantness continued month after month until the old woman died a few days agp. Even the presence of death failed to cause the neighbours to relent, and none of them would visit the house. The son, after laying out the corpse, pro- ceeded to the undertaker's, but the latter, fearing the consequences, refused to supply a, hearse in which to convey the remains to the graveyard. Two other undertakers were likewise timid, and pleaded that their vehicles were all engaged for the day of interment. The young man offlered to change the hour, but he was informed that it was more than their business was worth to comply with his request. As a last resort the farmer's donkey and cart were pressed into service, and in it the remains were carted to their resting-place. The only persons who attended the funeral were the deceased's eon and two friends from a distance.
TOWN SLIDES OVER A LAKE I The inhabitants of Sand point, a fishimg ) towin. on the shores of Lake Michigan, America, have had the thrilling experience of being blown out in their house on the frozen lake, and sliding five miles across a bay. Sandpoint consists of about twenty frame houses, built without foundations. When the gale arose on Saturday night it lifted the I houses and blew them out on the W?e. The inhabitants were sleeping at the time, and only a few were able to escape before the town began to slide. The further the | houses got from the shore the faster they slid before the wind. Their occupants dropped out as quickly as possible, and had the greatest difficulty in getting back to the ehore on the ioe in the teeth of the gaLe. No serious casualties are reported.

STEAMER 9- MISSING I CARDIFF CREW ON BOARD. Inquiry at the offices of Messrs. Michael Murphy (Limited), steamship owners, Dublin, elicited the information that there was no news yet to hand concerning the missing steamer George, which is reported to have left Garston for Dublin at midnight last Tuesday. The vesael was a Cardiff one. Most of the crew, it is stated, belong to Cardiff. The George is a steamer of 511 tons gross, built in 1894, and owned by Messrs. Michael I Murphy (Limited).
Burglaries at Cardiff I MINISTER'S HOUSE ROBBED I Burglars are busy. While the family ot the Rev. Charles Davies, No. 6, The Walk, Cardiff, were attending Tabernacle Chapel, on Sunday evening, someone entered the house by way of the kitchen window. From a bedroom they took away threes silvor-baclced hair-brushes, and were evi- dently disturbed during their operations. Thieves also entered No. 2, Malefant-place, Cardiff, on Sunday night, a residence occu- piod by Mr. Rodney, who had stolen from his clothes hanging in the bedroom whilst he was it bed a mm of money and a gold watcih. Mr. Rodney states that he heard no suspi- cious eoundts during the night. The pantry window had been smashed, and it is surmised that entry was gained into the house in this manner.
Lover's Adventures CHASED BY GIRL'S RELATIVES 1, The course of love does not seem to have run very smooth with Joseph O'Brien, of Mullinatawny, Tyrone, if the story he told at the Armagh Petty Sessions was an accu- rate account of his experiences. He charged James M'Crea, senior and junior, with assaults and threats. There were cross-cases of a similar nature. Plaintiff said that the defendants sent. for him to go over to their house, and when they got him there they assaulted him. He escaped, however, and made his way to a neighbouring barn, where he locked himself in, to save himself from his assailants. He was imprisoned in the barn for a considerable time, during which the defendants threatened him. In cnjss-examination, witness admitted, amidst roars of laughter, that he was walk- ing with one of the senior defendant's daughters, but he denied that the defen-1 dants had warned him not to walk with her. Mr. O'Connor: You call her your girl, I be-lieve?--Oh, yes. You have been keeping company with her for some years ?—Oh, yes; for the past twenty years. (Laughter.) Sure she is not twenty years of age?- Indeed she is. (Laughter.) Mr. O'Connor: I suppose you should know best. (Laughter.) In further cross-examination, witness denied that the defendant had warned him not to loiter about the house looking for his daughter. He also denied that he had left the girl home from Omagh market on a recent Saturday. James M'Crea, senior, swore that he entirely objected to the plaintiff walking with his daughter. (Laughter.) He had noticed the plaintiff loitering about the house, and he gave directions to his sons to chase him away every time he came. (Laughter.) He also warned the plaintiff not to be seen walking with his daughter again. (Laughter.) At the time of the alleged assault witness sent for the plaintiff to get an explanation of why he still walked the girl—(laughter)—but the plaintiff said he would give no explanation, and assaulted witness. A row then ensued, and the plain- tiff ran away and hid himself in a barn. (Laughter.) The plaintiff said he didn't want his daughter at all. (Laughter.) After further amusing evidence, the Benoh decided to dismiss all the cases on the merits.
Riot by Unemployed LIVELY MIDNIGHT SCENES. I A labour riot engaged the attention of the Sheffield police force in tho early hours of this morning. There was a. fall of snow on Sunday night, and about midnight a number of unem- ployed presented themselves at ihe corpora- tion department demanding the work of clear- ing away the snow from the streets. As the fall was not heavy it was not deemed necessary to engage additional assist- ance, whereupon tho unemployed became demonstrative, throwing missiles, breaking windows, and maltreating those whom they believed were corporation officials. Two of the rioters were seriously injured, necessitating their removal to the hospital- one the alleged ringleader. The police ultimately quieted the riot.
BEDWELLTY LICENSING SESSIONS The annual licensing sessions of the Bed- wellty Division opened at Blackwood to-day Superintendent Porter having presented his report, the Chairman said that it was highly satisfactory, and the decrease in drunken- ncsa reflected great credit on the people. Mr. E. H. Davies (the magistrates' clerk) said that he had been asked by the bench to say that they had received two petitions —one from the local Free Church Council and the otiher an objection to a billiard licence at Bedwae. The bench wished him to repeat what they said in 1892, that they would not receive memorials, for or against. Any person who wished to support or oppose any application must be prepared to submit himself to a cross-examination. The application to re-build Treyln Hotel Fleur-de-Lis, made by Mr. L. N. Hornby, of Newport, was granted. An application for alterations to the Black Prince, Ynysddu, was also granted, subject to certain alterations in the plans. The application for a full licence for the King's Head, Blaina, was adjourned to the Abertillery Sessions. An application for a new provisional full licence for the Duffryn Hotel. Aberbargoed, was adjourned to Tredegar. Mr. John Sankey then applied for a full licence for the Yendoll's Hotel, Aberbargoed, and this was adjourned to Tredegar also. A full provisional licence for the proposedI, Station Hotel, Ynysddu, was refused.

'Don't Bully the Lady.' I WEST HAM COURT SCENE I HEARING OF CHARGES OF FRAUD I The hearing of the conspiracy charges I against six guardians of the West Ham Union and four officials of the workhouse and infirmary was resumed to-day by the magis- trates at Stratford. This is the fifteenth I appearance of the accused before the bench. The defendants are John Anderson, George Arthur Crump, Frank William Hill, Alfred Skinner, Richard Philip Tarrant, and Tom Watts (guardians), and Edward John Hodge, Lewis George Hill, John Baird, and Alfred Riches (officials). Several witnesses were called to give evi- dence as to Crump dealing with bank notes alleged to have been given to him by Dr. M'Oormick on his appointment as a medical officer. The total sum disbursed by M'Cor- mick amounted to "S. The dealings of Lewis George Hut with the London and Provincial Bank at Leytonstone were also deposed to by the bank cashier, Bond. The late coal contractor, with whom the accused are alleged to have conspired to defraud the guardians, then entered the wit- ness-box. H-e came to the court in the charge of a warder. Bond's sentence of six months' imprisonment expires within the next fort- night. He was present merely to listen to the reading oi fne evence which he had given against the prisoners. Tne reading occupied a considerable time. When the reading of Bund's evidence was concluded Bond was cross-examined by Mr. j Daybsll, who defended Skinner. "How much," aa-id Mr. Day bell, "do you say you paid altogether to Skinner?" Bond: Well, I cannot tell you exactly, but I should say from £35 to £ 40. I don't, romember that I gave him more than I have stated in my depositions. Mr. Daybell: Well, that amounts ?o £25- two tens and a &Ye?—I don't thimk that can be correct. I think you said that you gave Skinner zElO in the weeen-oe of your wife and the guardia.n Hill?—No, I have not isaid that. Will you swear that Skinner has ever been in your house?—Certainly, Eir, certainly. I And that Skinner met other people besides yourself there? Bond (with emphasis!: Certainly, certainly, I believe Skinner helped you forward when you were a candidate for the Leyton Coun- cil?—He did not assista me for the Leyton Council, but he spoke for me at a public meeting when I was a candidate for the Essex County Council. When did you file your petition?—I didn't file it at all. Somebody Else Did It I for me. (Laughter.) I was made bankrupt on the 3rd of July, 1906. I do not admit that in my accounts I gave false evidenoe at the Local Government Board inquiry into the affairs of West Ham. Did you give truthful evidence?—No, sir, I did not. Do you say that your evidenoe now in these proceedings is the truth.-Yes, I do say 80, sir. May I take it that you saw Skinner less than any other of the guardians?—I should say I had seen him rather more. With one exception, I should say there was not much difference. Can you give the name of any person who ever saw you pay Skinner money?—No, I do not think I can. I Mrs. Watts then re-entered the witness- box, and was cross-examined by Mr. Daybell. She said she had not seen Mr. Skinner more than twice. She was introduced to him at her house, and did not remember being intro- duced at a meeting at Leyton when her hus- band was a candidate for the Essex County Council. She had not seen her husband give Skinner any money. Tom Watts (who defended himself): When were you first introduced to me?—The same time as Mr. Skinner. Have you seen me since then ?—I don't think so. Were you at the political meeting in aid of the candidature of your husband?—Yes. Do you recoLoct seeing me there?—I don't. Watts: It's lather strange that you should not have seen me when I was there on the platform, and Izpoke on behalf of your hus- band. The Clerk: That is not a question. The Chairman (Mr. Carter): Perhaps she didn't take any notice of what you said. Watts: It's very strange she could not see me. The Chairman: Please don't bully the lady. Watts: I'm not bullying her, but she w-oia't answer my questions. It's no use my asking questions if she won't answer. The Chairman: She can't answer questions on those lines. Mr. Watts then resumed his seat. (Proceedings.)
Cardiff Tug Aground I IN A DANGEROUS POSITION I The crew of the steam-tug Lady Salisbury, of Cardiff, had an unpleasant experience on Saturday night. She had taken a boat up to Bristol, and was returning down the river, when ehe ran aground cn the Horseshoe Bend. The tide was fast ebbing, and, failing to move, the tug was left in a dangerous position. The night was bitterly cold, but the crew had to remain aboard. A message was despatched to Cardiff for the tug Salvor, which came up early on the next tide, and eucoeedcd in getting the Lady Salisbury off. 'I The damage cannot yet be ascertained, but she has been taken back to dock.

ASCENT AND FALL OF MAN I Sir Oliver Lodge gave an address on "The Ascent and Fall of Man" at Whitefield's Tabernacle, London, on Saturday. In the course of his remarks he commented upon the relationship of religion and science, and mentioned his own Catechism," which was published some weeks ago, as showing how they could be reconciled. Human beings, he said, shared life with animals and vegetables; but people were not only alive, but conscious, and that discriminated them from vegetables. Only the animal world was oonscious. and of that only the human part of it was self-conscious. This conception of themselves, their personal identity, enabled them to possess character, will, choice, and freedom, and the knowledge of good and evil, and thus become linked with the Divine. Having reviewed the ascent of man from his brute ancestor, the learned professor pointed out that the Parable of the Talents indicated that. the lower forms of life should be discouraged and the higher encouraged, and all children should be given a fair chance of becoming, each in its own way, a noble specimen of developed humanity. Their ancestors had ascended with a struggle and suffering, and had become men. People now should feel grateful to the unknown pioneers of the human race. With regard to the fall of man, Sir Oliver said that all men were free in the sense that they were not coerced from outside, but they were not free in the sense of lawless. They were sub- ject to the law of their own nature.
COMPETITIVE CLERKS I It was reported to Cardiff Finance Com- mittee to-day by Mr. Allcock, that he had inaugurated a system of competitive exami- nations for applicants for junior clerkships under the corporation ,n order to secure the services of the best qualified men for the council. He held the first examination on January 22. The step received the cordial apBioval of the committee.
Critics and the Match t VARIOUS VIEWS on WELSH DEFEAT Seven 'Forward System Blamed I Through the kindness of the editors, we are able to publish a number of extracts from comments in to-day's papers on Satur- ¡ day's match between Wa-les and Scotland. Daily Telegraph. The failure of the Welsh fifteen to carry through successfully any one oi their many attacks was, perhaps, the moet notable fact in connection with the game. It is true they came desperately near doing so in the last five minutes, and were unlucky in just fall- ing short, but their inability to overcome a defence that, though good and steady, was in no way exceptional was significant. It was not a great game, but the interest was always maintained by the closeness and keenness of the struggle. The first half was comparatively tame, being almost devoid of special incidents, and the match probably will be remembered by reason of the heroic and well-nigh successful efforts of the Welsh- men to pull the game out of the fire in the last few minutes. Wales had all the best of the first half, but the sole result of their labours was a penalty goal. Afterwards the I Welsh forwards, who were in no way respon- sible for the defeat, gave way before superior numbers, and their backs found themselves cramped. The latter failed, with the exception of Winfield, who gave a mae- terly display at full-back. His accident was a great misfortune for the side, but Gibbs in the position proved equally safe. Yorkshire Post. Although matches between Scotland and Wales at Edinburgh have produced better displays of Rug-by football than was seen on Saturday, few matches between the countries have been more stubbornly contested and have had a more exciting finish. The Scottish forwards, though very effective in the loose, hardly packed so well as against the South Africans, while they took so long to find their game that Wales might have secured a winning lead had the defence of the &cotti&h backs been less reeolnte during the first quarter of an hour. The general impression left by the match was that Scotland would have won by a much Larger margin-eo completely were Vv ales outplayed forwa: d during the second half-but for the comparative failure of their half-backs. Munro was sadly missed, for he would probably had made openings which Greig aDd Simson failed to do. The last-named was only a shadow of his great self, while Greig, t"lotiqh a very sound player, is not Munro. The match afforded another proof that a good eight of well-trained forwards will wear down a good seven, even if the latter hold tneir own for a time. Of Scotland's new men, M'Gregor was a O«IJIY'oA<:O: Glasgow Herald. The game throughout was very stubbornly contested, but it was clearly demonstrated that eeven Vi elshmen in the scrum were not a match for the eight Scottish forwards. The former were hustled all the time. Probably the Welsh team owed their defeat to this cause. It seemed, indeed, that the extra back was a man practically wasted in the attack, as the Welsh thrae-quarter Line worked more smoothly after Winfield retired. Of the players Sloan, at back, was a eucoess. Winfield, on the other hand, was not so good, but Gibbs, who took his place 1a.t.t.e¡-ly, proved much better. M'Gregor and M'Leod were the most prominnt in the three-quarter line. Th? best of the We1:h backs ware Evans, Gibbs, Maddocks, and Owen. The Scottish defence wao equal to the stoutist dem.a.nd in fact, they maae up the balance of a splen- did fifteen, against, whom it was no discredit to be unsuccessful. It was a, memora-ble game. Observer. The V elshmen did not reach their usual high standard of play. Owen found himself greatly cramped, and Trew was also too closely watched to be of much assistance in opening up the game. Gibbs. too, as the rovjng back, accomplished nothing of note, and very probably his ineffectiveness upset the combination very largely. He was much better when he went full-back in place of I Winfield, who, until injured, played a great game. Williams and Gabe worked well together, the former running admirably, and they formed a much stronger wing than Maddocks and Evans. A curious fact about the match was that, while Scotland scored a couple of tries, the Welshmen did not once cross t.heir opponents.' line, though in the concluding stages they came desperately near doing so onoe or twice. Lloyd's. I The match did not fnrnish a fair test of the new formation, Winfield going off at a very crucial moment. At the time the Welsh full-back left the field the scores were all even, and up to that time the Welsh scrum had held their own. It was a great match, but although Scot- land won, the result was inconclusive in many respects. In particular, of course, the loss of Winfield destroyed the true test of one style against another, as it was, of course, in the last half-hour that the ques- tion of the Welsh idea would be fully tested. Wales had a mea-sore of ill-luck, for several players suffered from injury, while Scotland were comparatively immune. In this connection the game will be specially remembered for the mighty final- effort which Wales unsuccessfully made. Scotsman. I Perhaps Welsh supporters thought the side had done well enough in the circumstances, and Winfield's loss was undoubtedly a severe handicap, for prior to his retirement he had fielded and kicked in brilliant style. Even a Bancroft could not have been of more service in saving his forwards unnecessary running about, for he never failed to get touch, which was more than could be said of some of the Scotsmen. Though dangerous enough when on the move, the Welsh three-quarters were not up to the standard of recent lines which included Nicholls, Morgan, or LleweUyn; in fact, the back play was poor for Wales though Owen did the donkey work splendidly, and sent out the bÆll well whenever he got the chance. Gibbs, too, proved a player of parts, but the Welsh backs, strange to say, were better in defence than attack. Winfteld's unfortunate accident prevented the two systems of formation from having a fair trial, but up to the time of his retirement it certainly had not been proved that the Welshmen, thoug-h receiving the ball fairly often, were ga-inirig advantage by their extra back, and when there was so little between I I the forwards in the tight it is just possible that another man in the pack would have I turned the scale as reg-ards forward play completely in the Welshmen's favour. News of the World. The result of the great strug-gle at Inver- leith was most inconclusive, and whilst Soot- land won, and raised once again the omen of fatal Inverleigh before the eyes of Wales and Welshmen, there is little real eatisfac- tion in the triumph to Scotsmen, or in the I outcome of the game as a pure and simple study of systems to the higher students of Rugby football. Around the match revolved essentially t,1te question of the success or the failure of the system which Wales has deter- mined to play her internationals upon. But the match decided nothing. At the crucial moment Wales lost the services of Winfield, and for the last half-hour they had to be content with fourteen men, Gibbs, the roving commissioner, going full-back. Now, it is generally admitted that with the last half-hour lay the crux of the contest- tha.t is to say, would the seven forwards of Wales collapse under the strain of holding tihe Scottish forwards, or would they continue to hold the opposition, and, with the Scotch backs tiring, would the Welsh backs be able to sweep the field, or, again, would the Welsh forwards crumble up? In nearly all these aspects the contest remains inconclusive, and the issue leaves Wales abso- lutely justified in a continuance of their experiment against Ireland. Against Ireland Wales will make no change, and as Ireland possesses a particularly stirring lot I of players, we may have a more definite cue to the value of the extra back game. Winfield, until he retired, overshadowed Sloan, the Welshman fielding with unerring precision, and kicking a great length, always into touch. The Welsh three-quarters were more effective than the opposing four, but the quartette by no means came up to the standard of some of the Welsh three-quarter lines of past years. The Scottish forwards gave them little scope, and perhaps, with the presence of the extra man, there was less room on the field for those beautiful rhyth- mical rune in which long passes predomi- nated—runs which for ten years have been the feature of Welsh international teams, and the main arm to so many Welsh triumphs. Gibbs as roving commissioner was not often noticed, but as relief full-back he was magnificent. The Welsh forwards played manfully, but they had too muoh to hold in so strong a Scottish paok. The failure of Wales to score a try bears strong argument against the new formation when it has to tackle a combination which, un- doubtedly, possesses sound scrimmagers, and Scotland have sound scrimmagers in abund- ance.
Suicide on a P. & O. Liner PASSENGER CUTS HIS THROAT IN PRESENCE OF STEWARD George Hutchinson, a seoond-clals passenger on his way home from Ceylon by the P. and O. steamer Victoria, which arrived at Ply- mouth on Saturday, committed suicide on January 13 by cutting his throat when in his cabin. The deoeased, who was 28 years of age, had been in Ceylon for the last five years, and had previously gone through the South African war as an Imperial Yeoman. He cut his throat in the presence of a steward, whom he knocked down when an endeavour was made to grasp the razor with which the act was committed.

HOEMAKER AND WIFE I William Young, a shoemaker, of Cwmcarn, was charged at Blackwood to-day with wounding his wife, Alice, and James Titt, a next-door neighbour. A poker was produced in court, and was stated to be the weapon with which the defendant inflicted the wound on the woman's head. Mrs. Young was too ill to be present, and Superintendent Porter asked for a remand, stating that he did not know what would happen. Prisoner: If I knocked her with the poker I should have killed her. Prisoner was remanded in custody until Thursday at A be ream. It is alleged that the prisoner discovered his wife waltzing in the next-door house, and I when she came in Young hit her first with his fiut and then with the poker. Titt came I to her reacue, and it is stated that Young then sta-mok lim a severe blow.
WHAT A HAPPY HOME! I At Liverpool to-day a labourer, named Michael Henry M'Donough (28), was harged with murdering his flVe-months-old child. It is alleged that on Saturday night the prisoner and his wife quarrelled, and crockery and other household articles were used as missiles. The child, which was in the arms of the mother, was struck on the back of the head with a bar. a,nd a. wound was inflicted which proved fatal shortly afterwards. The accused, who denied the charge, was remanded.

Barry Designs on Cardiff 1* CITY AUTHORITIES BELLIGERENT A ~aSroiigly-w«rcfed "petition wtzcitot the Barry Railway Company's Bill to oou6S.ruco two reservoirs m the neighbourhood of Llanisihen, and thus abstract water to w Cardiff is entitled, was approved at a. meeting of the Cardiff Parliamentary Committee to- day. The Town-clerk, who had drafted the peti- tion, poi<ni.ed out that the Barry Company proposed to take water from the sources which originally supplied the Llaniisheii and Lisvane reservoirs, amd might stiii be used in case of emergency. The scheme would also interfere with the supply of wtuer to Roa,th Park Lake and the power-station in N e wpart^road. Alderman Garey saad one reason why the power-station was erected in that position was that the Uoa-th Brook might be used as a water supply. Alderman David Jones stated that if the supply had to be taken from the corporation maolns it would cost the trainway ejoninittee L630 a year. It was further resolved to oppose that portion of the Bill by which the Barry Com- pany propose to run omnibuses and other conveyances in c.onneotion with. their railway system.
