Disaster at a "Wake."I ! .—————————
Disaster at a "Wake." I .————————— WALLS COLLAPSE ON MOURNERSI AND THE CORPSE A startling accident took place yesterday iti the little Irish town of Bleary, about three miles from Lurgan. An old man named Henry Toman, who died on Wednesday, was I being" waked in a cottage on a. hilly spot. Owing to the rough weather the aide walls, which were built of mud, were blown in. Two young women, Sarah Jane Haddock, 33, and Lizzie Haddock, nineteen, were buried- in the debris. When they were rescued, after considerable difficulty, it was found that the elder girl had sustained a compound fracture of the leg and severe bruises on the body, while Lizzie Haddock was suffering from internal injuries. They were removed to the infirmary. An old man and little girl were also slightly hurt. The corpee wa* buried in the debris for six hours.
IA SYNAGOGUE MISTAKE. I
A SYNAGOGUE MISTAKE. I A claim to recover 9b. 6d. occupied the attention of Judge Bacon at Whitechapel County-court yesterday. Plaintiff, Charles Simms, stated that he and the defendant, Davia Godfrey, were invited to a. Jewish religious party, and when the plate was sent round for the Syna- gogue officials defendant handed him a shilling, and asked him to change it for two sixpences. Soon aJt-eT plaintiff discovered that he must have given defendant half a sovereign in mistake for sixpence, but the defendant said he had only two sixpences; one of these was put in the plate, and fourpence he gave to the singers. Judge Bacon: Fourpence. I thought you had another sixpence. Defendant: Veil, I did put ze sixpenoe in ze plate, and I did take twopence out. A witness said he saw the defendant look at one of the sixpences, then put it in his pocket, and leave hurriedly. Defendant: You saw? How could you see? You playing wit ze baby. If you did see me, why did you not call out at ze time? Judgment for defendant.
I WESTON GRAND PIER, I
I WESTON GRAND PIER, I In the House of Commons yesterday after- noon the Weston-super-Mare Grand Pier Bill came before the Select Committee on Unopposed Bills, Mr. E-mmott, Chairman of Ways and Meajos, presiding. It was elicited from the Parliamentary agent that it was hoped that next week or the following week a second section of the pier would be open for passengers ajid ior steamer traffic. The Bill passed the Committee, and was ordered to be reported to the House.
SPINAL PARALYSIS. ON CRUTCHES 7 YEARS. CURED AT LAST BY DR. CASSELL'S TABLETS. Mr. Jesse Rosling, Churoh-lane, Preston, near Hull, writes:—" For seven years I was suffering with paralysis and spinal weakness. The feeling had gome entirely from my limbs, and it was with the utmost difficulty that I oould walk with crutches. I lost flesh rapidly, and was unable to work. The doctors here said I was incurable. Three months ago I oommenoeed to take Dr. Cassell's Tablets, and am glad to say at the present time I can walk without assistance. A fter the first month I gained three pounds in weight; tie feeling came back to my limbs, and I must say that the cure you have effected is nothing short ot miraculous- I am able to work a little now and have had a number of visitors coming to see me who could not believe that Dr. Cassell's Tablets had done 90 much good. You are at liberty to publish this letter, as I cannot do too much to show my gratitude."

LIMERICKS AND LAW
LIMERICKS AND LAW Judge Owen as Poet. I ROUNDED OATHS. I BY LLOYD MEYRICK County-court week in Cardiff is always a gay time for everybody but the liti- gants and, perhaps, the advocates. The humour of Judge Owen is so unexpected and surprising that graver men smite after him in vain. In a few hours the stock of laughter is exhausted, and the remainder of the time is spent in weak cackles and short hysterical yelps. On Wednesday his .honour, (however, sur- passed himself. I have long been acquainted with his polished periods and sparkling epigrams, his terse wisdom and pointed jest, but it comes as a surprise to learn of an unsuspected vein of poetry. It is true that as yet there is some- thing modest and crude about the Muse, but, no doubt, time will strengthen the poetic flight. Even a limerick contains the seedling that may blossom to a whole poesy of rich effort. To be fair, however, will the learned judge allow the officials and advocates to "cap" his own inspired output? Behind the almost ecclesias- tical gravity of the Official Receiver lurks many a gay quip, and the Regis- trar, I verily believe, could easily beat that touching story about "a young woman from Chichester." The learned judge ihas whetted the appetite of the public, and it looks forward to greater sport in the future. At the next court may we expect in miniature a re-produc- tion of the scene in "Tannhauser," when advocates may twang the lyre for judg- ments instead of talking dry law and common-sense. The builders of the law courts have, I fear, made no provision for this new and startling departure of the judge. There will be no room for the crowd of delighted listeners, and his honour's latest limerick will be bandied from tongue to tongue, as in the old days was the latest effort of Pasquin. The learned judge's court has always been popular with a sedate, quiet, and unaggressive popularity, as befits the high concerns of Sir Antic the Law, but this popularity pales before the coming uproarious time. The judge's eternal freshness of heart will always save him from the recogni- tion of the bitterness of the line, "Dim with the mist of years, grey flits the shade of power," and less fortunate men can only lend laughter to an all-oonquer- ing vitality. No doubt, the new surroundings have added a quicker zest to the administra- tion of law in Cardiff, and we may expect his ihonour's example to be followed by our Great Unpaid. We will have, say, Alderman Carey bursting out in the police-court with; There was a young woman of Exeter, And a happy young Tneyn sat next to her; and inviting his colleagues to fill in the next two lines. There is no limit to the gay possibilities of the situation, and I deeply regret that I have retired from the legal arena. In my time the law was so dull, and I even suspected his honour of endorsing the sentiment of the line, "Fools are my theme, let satire be my song." A thousand welcomes to "a young woman from Chichester," who, no doubt, will always be a source of inspiration to young lawyers. They may do away with their patron saint and worship at the shrine of their patroness. The county-court circuit is, indeed, for- tunate in having as presiding luminary a gentleman who is at once a lawyer and a wit, and about whom it can never be said: The solemn fop, significant and bodge; A fool with judges, amongst fools a judge. To turn to another aspect of the pro- ceedings on Wednesday. "Did you hear the oath?" said the high bailiff to a very deaf defendant who was being sworn. "No, but he took it," retorted Judge Owen, who observed the defen- dant kiss the Book, and the court broke into a broad smile. From his vast expe- rience the judge, no doubt, knows that there are many little dodges in the wit- ness-box. I have heard a man say that he was not bound by what he said' because he did not hear the oath said 1 This is a very ancient device. An Abys- sinian chief, who had sworn an oath he disliked, has been seen to scrape it ofF his tongue and spit it out. There are still places in Germany where the false witness reckons to escape the spiritual consequences of perjury by crooking one finger, to make it, I suppose, not a straight but a crooked oath, or he puts his left hand to his side to neutralise what the right hand is doing. Here is the idea of our "over the left," but so far as I know this has come down with us to mere schoolboy's shuffling. I think it was Paley, remarking on the different forms of swearing in different countries, who does not scruple to say that they are "in no country in the world, I believe, worse contrived either to convey the mean- ing or impress the obligation of an oath than in our own." It would be far better if we did away with all form of oath and declaration. Once a witness begins his evidence before a duly constituted court he ought to be liable from the very fact to all the consequences of perjury. In a court lately a little girl was asked the usual preliminary question as to the conse-1 quenoe of swearing falsely, and answered in due form, Please, sir, I should go to burning Hell." Unluckily, however, the unusual question was then put, how she knew that, which brought the reply: Oh, please, another girl outside told me I was to say so." It is bar tradition that years ago the most sarcastic of English judges put the whole matter in a nut- shelL The question having been asked of a child witness if she knew what would become of her when she died, she answered simply, Don't know, sir" whereupon the judge said, "Well, gentJe- men, no more do I know, but the child's evidence cannot be taken." The Canon Law expressly forbade the exacting of an oath from children under fourteen-pueri ante annos XIV. non cogantuT jurare. As Mr. Tylor points out, this prohibition is derived from yet earlier law. The rough old Norsemen would not take oaths from children, as comes out so quaintly in the Saga of Baldur, where the goddess made all the beasts and birds and trees swear they would not harm her, but the little mistle- toe only she craved no oath from, for she thought it was too young. Evidence of young children is in this country accepted with great caution, and it may be said the mere capacity (apart alto- gether from inclination) to state facts correctly only comes with years, discip- line, and education. It may be said that the natural inclination of many people is to lie, but, however, I have no space further ito enlarge on the subject to-day.
Premiers in Scotland.I
Premiers in Scotland. I A ROUND OF ENGAGEMENTS Mr. Deakin, Sir Joseph Wa.rd, General Louis Botha, and Dr. Jameson travelled from London to Edinburgih. by special train last riigiht to fulfil a round of engagements in the Sootoh Metropolis, and arrived at Waiverley Station punctually at half-past seven this morning. Mr. Moor's engagements prevented him from going North. Lord Provost Gibson was on the platform to receive them, and even at that early hour a considerable number of people had congre- gated to get a glimpse of tlhe distinguisihed visitors. Carriages were in readiness to convey them to the North British Station Hotel—their headquarters for the day. There was no demonstration. The first engagement was at nine o'clock, when the Premiers breakfasted at tihe University Students' uThÎon. Mr. Forbes Watson (Precident of the union) pre- sided, and there was a large attendance of academical luminaries and students, parti- cularly of those connected with South African and Australian clubs. At the conclusion of the breakfast the Premiers drove to Synod Hall, where they were made honoray burgesses of Edinburgh in the presenoe of a crowded gathering. Lord Provost Gibeon presided, and pre- sented the burgess ticket in a special silver casket to each Premier, who made a short speech in reply. Allusion was made, both by the Lord Provost and the Premiers, to the closeness' of the ties binding the Colonies with Scot- land, and to the Literary Associations of Edinburgh.

IRISING IN INDIA. I - I t…
I RISING IN INDIA. t I Alarming Reports TROOPS POUR INTO LAHOREI I Rrngleader Arrested. It is announced cut Calcutta that Imipat Rai, one of the amative barristers arrested recently on a charge of inciting to disorder and sedition, is to be deported froajj the Punjab. Luivat Rai is & well-known pleader in the Lahore Chief Court, and is a leading mem- ber of the" Arya Samaj," a powerful religious and educational association. He visited England two years ago as a delegate to the Indian Congress, and addressed many meetings in London amd in the provisoes. He is one of the most popular Pobti-la leaders in the Punjab. He is alleged to have been the ringleader in tie reoent agitation. It is feared that the doportati<m <xf the accused without any trial may imjcrease the general unrest, which is recognised as wide- spread. Feeling in the matter throughout India is intense. The Lieutenant-Governor of the Punjab has abandoned a proposed visit to SimA. and has inspected the defences of Lahore. A dangerous agitator ihas been arrested and deported. The excibement and anxiety throughout India are intense in view of the immense native population, which may become affected by the seditious movement. It is feared that more serious troubles axe to follow. Military Poured into Lahore I LAHOBE, Friday. The sudden and swift display of military force at LaJiore by the authorities (states a telegram to-day) has dumbfounded the xewo. kutionaries, who had interpreted the Government's forbearance as weakness and timidity. Simultaneously the arrest of Lajpat Rai has paralysed the organisataou of the sedi- tionary movement, which is now without a leader. The troops were out all last night, but the city, which had hitherto been the some of nflg-htly excitement, inflammatory oratory, boisterous processions, and various political exoesees, slept in unbroken stillness, the I streets being utterly deserted. Murders in Bengal I It is significant of the widespread character of the anti-European movement that the two storm centres in India at present are Lahore, in the Punjab, and the Mymensingh district, in Eastern Bengal, more than a thousand miles apart. The Government, which now realises fully the extreme peril of the situation, is pre- pared for military operations on a large scale. Failure to check the seditious movement in Eastern Bengal promptly (says the "Daily Express ") has resulted in a state of revolt. Thousands of Dacoits, Hindus. and Mahometans are roaming through the Mymensingh district, plundering and burn- ing villages, and ill-treating all natives who profess loyalty to the Government, Many murders have been committed. Thirty-seven agitators have already been arrested by the military police, and drastic measures are to be taken to stamp out the movement. The participation of Mahometans in the Mymensingh outrages shows clearly that the movement is directed against British rule, instead of being a fight between Hindus and Mæ. Mutiny Anniversary. Fifty years ago to-day the Indian Mutiny I began at Meerut, a military station forty miles "from Delhi. The coincidence is note- worthy, in view of the present unrest in the Punjab, and the sisiter preparations of the disloyal natives at Lahore. The outbreak at Meerut took place on Sun- day evening, May 10, 1857. The sepoy regi- ments fired the British quarters, massacred &even officers, three officers' wives, and two children, as well as a number of other Europeans, and released 1,285 prisoners. The next day the mutineers entered Delhi, and this was the beginning of the, great struggle which kept the Xorth-west Pro- vinces and Central India in a state of anarchy and warfare for two years.

I Police -b and Suffragette CROWD OF 400 IN A CARDIFF STREET I Miss Pankhuret, one of the leading suffra- gettes, who is 'now in Cardiff, addressed an open-air meeting1 at Dumfries-place on Thurs- day evening, but very few of her remarks were heard more than a couple of yards away on account of the good-humoured banter to which she was subjected by a crowd which at the start numbered about 50, but quickly increased to about 400. 111 spite of the oppo- sition she reeled cut a. torrent of words. The crowd indulged in snatches of comic songs, and a heroic attempt was made to sing Pour out the Ehein wine." This was a failure, as the audience were not suffieienitly acquainted with either the words or the tune, but when somebody started "For she's a jolly good fellow," the lady had to stop for a few minutes. "Seven days." shouted one; Hear, hear," said another, and a third chipped in with And hereafter." A few pieces of orange peel were thrown at the lady, but she took no notice of this atten- tion. At length the pressure became so groat that she was pushed off the box upon which she had boen standing, and simultaneously a constable came up and asked whether she had obtained the head-constable's permission to speak in the public streets. Miss Pank- hurst admitted that she had not, 'and was requested to desist. As soon as the preserver of the peace had gone away the lady re- started, to the accompaniment of more ban- tering rema.rks, but when the officer returned she desisted, and the crowd was cleared, I meanwhile ganging, Good-bye, my own love." MISS PANKHURST PROTESTS I To the Editor the "Evening Express." Sir.—I shall be glad if you will allow me to correct the report in your issue of to-day, which states that we had not permission to hold the meeting at Dumfries-place last night. The permission had been granted by the police-constable, and the necessary notice given. The meeting was abandoned, because of the disorderly and disgraceful conduct of youths, who made it impossible for those of the audionce who desired to hear to do so. Surely, the citizens of Cardiff cannot but view with dismay the lwk of OOœnt behaviour among a section of its towns- people, which makes it impossible for any society of reformers to plead its cause to the people. All British men and women should feel the seriousness of the position when they realise that the interests of the nation must be entrusted to those who have not the first elementary qualification of citizenship, ordi- nary regard for the liberty of others, or I self control enough to avoid exhibitions of I hooliganism which are a disgrace to the country.—I am, Ac., ADELIA PANKHURST. Women's Social an-d Political Union Organiser. 17, Beda-road, Cardiff, May 10.

Ctorporataom-road, Newport Between eleven and twelve o'clock in the forenoon the iauhabatomts were shocked at seeing a woman run down the street in her night attire, enveloped in flames. She was found to be Mrs. OldflEhld. the wife of William Oldfleld, an ironworker, employed at Ijyeaght's WorfeB, and living at 35, Walsall- sfcreet.

Greek and English Girll
Greek and English Girll ASSAULTED ON WEDDING DAY I A Greek named Tokenine Sttellio, refreah- men»C-3iouse keeper, appeared at Barry Police- court to-day in answer to a summons for persistent cruelty towards his wife, Catherine StelLio, an English girl of 21 years, who car- ried a young baby in her arms, amd to'd her tale of woe from the witness-box. Mr. T. P. Pritobard, solicitor, who appeared for the complainant, said she wanted a. separation order on the ground of persistent cruelty. About four or five years ago the complainant was engaged by defendant es domestic servant. lie took advantage of her, and she bore him a child. The girl threatened him with paternity proceedings, and to avoid the same he married her, but ever since he had treated her with cruelty, making her life one of misery. Complainant said she was married at Charles-street Registry Office, Cardiff. Her husband assaulted her on the night of tiheir wedding-clay, and he had continued his cruelty towards her. He was a. heavy drinker, and had often struck her with his fist, whilst on ono occasion he was in the act of throw- ing a kettle of boiling water at her when someone interfered. Defendtamt pleaded that he did not strike his wife exoopt on one occasion, when she said something offensive about the Greeks. The Bench made an order for 10s. a week and costs, and advised the parties to make up their differences and live together again. Defendant said he would take hie wife back amd try to live happily.

-TWO WOMEN'S LlVS_I
TWO WOMEN'S LlVS I PAINFUL REVELATIONS. I At Clerkenwell Sessions Elizabeth Dickin- son, 54, and Lily Davies, 32, mother ard daughter, were ordered to come up for sen- tence if called upon. Many tradesmen were said to have been losers of sums owing several years, and totalling to perhaps xi,ooo. Sir Charles Mathews said the younger woman had for years borne the name of the man under whose protection she lived. That resulted in the birth of six children, the eldest now eight, the youngest born on Christmas Day last. To her protector came in the course of years monetary misfortune, not in the sense that he had lost all liveli- hood and meane of it, but in the sense that intermittently after 1901 he came into con- nection with little that was of good to him. The women were arrested on January 25. They were remanded twelve times, and then there occurred a grave misfortune. When the case had been put back for the thirteenth time, on that day the man who was the protector of the young woman was going into the witness-box to say upon whose shoulders the burden ought to reet. But before the day arrived he had been stricken dead. At this point both women burst into tears. The man (added Sir Charles) was not an old man. His death was quite unexpected. Picture what it would mean for a man to go into a public court and say how he had become responsible for the debts of a woman who was not his wife. Yet he was going un- flinchingly to face it.

The men were destinied for Hong-Kong, but once aboard the Maori King they were not per- mitted to land, and the vessel is on her way to Mexico, where the coolies will be landed and put to work on the railroads. "The Con&u 1 -General further states that, owing to the btrutal,ity of tie officers, the Chinese mutinied. As a result 25 of their number were shot dead, and their bodies thrown overboard."

He also discovered oertain "indirect references" to the Kaiser. Oonsequently, he refused to sanction the public performance of The Girls of Gotten berg until some alterations had been made in the dialogue. All refer- ences to Berlin and Potsdam have been cut out, and the comedians have received instructions to be very careful as to what "gags" they interpoliate, so as to a.void offence to the Germans.

Superintendent Brooks said when the case wao first before the court, in February, a. pitiiflul tale of poverty was told in excuse for the arrears not being paid. Since then he had found that Muilins had deceived the court in every way. Notwithstanding the good wages he earned, the family lived in one room in Hewertoon-street, slept on a. miaittnees, hadn't a shilling's worth of furni- ture, amid Mjuflins sent his wife, who was in delicate health, out to work.

I ELECTION PROMISES] I WHY DO THEY MISS? l How Practical Men Fail In Public j I BY "FREELANCE." Municipal candidates in every urban dis- trict, as well as town amd city, vie with each other at election tames in exciting the elec- tora.te into the belief that they are being robbed and swindled right and left by every- body, from tihe tihaetf officials down to the bumble lampligJiler and crossing-sweeper. Wholesale pledges a.re mad-e in favour at a reduction in raites and extravagant expendi- ture, and, to complete the stock-in-trade, they cry out for land for bousing and allotments, for playgrounds, parks, and pleasure gardens. All these things aire to be obtained, the electors are assured, if these geiltlemen-who usually describe themselves as practical business menre returned. It is, therefore, most interesting to note the efforts of these practical business raen to carry out their pledges. On the first morning after the election the new councillor meets tihe sweeper, who touches his hat to him. In the evening he meets the lamplighter, who also shows his respect (or fear) in a similar manner. When this has been repeated a few days our new representative's heart begins to soften. He in the end has a cbmt witlh these men, and his sympathy is pledged to see what he oa.n do for them. Next come the officials. It is with this set the newly-elected intends to make short work, so he arrives at the first com- mittee meeting with a scowl upon his face and determination in his eye. and begins putting questions, offensive amd otherwise, with a vigour that staggers the older mem- bers and seams likely to make a breach in the reputlations of the officials concerned. Yet it is not to be. for the public official is nothing if not a. diplomat. His answers are ready, civil, and kind, booked up by reports, books, vouchers, or plane, as the case may be. all instantly produced. In fact, nothing seems too much trouble to the official, to explain legal, technical, or general corporate buednesB to the new member. After a few doses of such expe- rience, is it to be wondered at t", t the officials are dropped like a hpt brick, only to be picked up again when it is oertain that the artdole is cold? Next comes the rate question. Does any- one require to be told that rates are mot reduced on election platforms? If ao, I invite such to give the public their experience. We now come to the practical men, MA I do not think a better illustration can be found than the Cardiff City Council itself, Let us examine a few of iite committees to see how tihe practical side is represented. First, the asylums committee. The chairman is am. architect, and the members comprise two retired gentlemen, one of whom is chairman of the finance committee, one agent, two builders, two lawyers, three doctors, one merchant, one macon, and one joiner. The control ought to be eAl right here, one would think, yet this committee has exceeded its con- tract price by some XZO,000 to £ 40,000. Let us try the tramway committee. The chairman, who only ascended to the chair last Novem- ber, is a company director, and the others are: one gentleman retired, one mining engineer, one architect, one wagon and carriage builder, one builder, one labourer, one tradesman, one mason, one accountant, one doctor, one undertaker, and one director. Nearly half the members of this committee have only been in office since November last. Yet they admit their incompetence and desire to be relieved of the management by giving the engineer absolute control. Why don't they resign altogether? One more illustration will suffice. The committee of the public works consists of three builders, two architects, two lawyers, one merchant, one engineer, one company director, one agent, one stone- mason, one joiner, and one labourer. This committee give out more work by contract than all the others, notwithstanding they have at their command a staff of expert engineers and assistants. They also havo to purchase all land for improvements. Now, this Land question is not quite eo serious in Cardiff aa some people think. It would be worth while to inquire what amount of land is a.t present lying idle and under the control of our corporation, what, it costs, and what it was purchased for. It is quite time to make inquiry, especially whe-n efforts are being made to make the city more interesting and enterwnjing in, order to help the etrug?lin? trader. oounc!Uor John Mander deserves, not only the tihaniks of the businew section of the city for bis effort, but better treatment from the mem- bers of his committee. Land should not be sold if it is possible to utilise it, neither should it be reserved when not wanted until privately owned land has been opened up. To turn allotment holders off and not use the land is unjust to those tenants and a loss to the city. What the public want to know is why it is not possible for a-11 theoe practical, expe- rienced, and successful business men to give the same attention and careful instruction to the work of the public as they do to their own private concerns. The composition of the foregoing committees is such that, test it from what point you will, every element that is necessary for the oorreot government of any commercial undertaking is already represented there. Providing they are ready to work for the problio good, having the capital necessary at their disposal, as well as skilled men and up-to-date plant and machinery, better results ought to be shown than we have hitherto experienced. If this oanmot be, then tbe reasons why shonfld be inquired into.

ARRESTED AS A SPY_____I
ARRESTED AS A SPY An alert, cleaii-ehaveu young man, named Joseph Ernest Geddies, 21, clerk, pleaded guilty at Clerkenwell yesterday to having stolen a cheque for z628 14s., the property of his masters, Tudor Incorporated, of Ely-place, Holborn, also to having stolen 15,207 articles of jewellery, brooches, pins, Ac., value £ 324. Mr. Wing, for Geddes, said he was the son of a prosperaus English merchant in Shanghai, and in 1902 he left for Russia, where he was arrested as a Japanfoe spy, and accused of selling pltans of Port Arthur to the Japanese. He was exposed to great hardships and suffering, brutally flogged, and for many days languished in gaol, with the terror of death before hiul. As a conse- quence, his health became impaired. There was no truth in the accusations, and even- tually, after many months in Siberian gaols, he was set at liberty. j Geddes was ordered six months' imprison- ment.

WHAT HE THOUGHT I A well-known author, on leaving his house one morning, forgot a letter that he had meant to post. That afternoon something re-called it, and as it was of considerable importance he immediately hurried home. The letter was nowhere to be found. He sum- moned the handyman. Have you seen any- thing of a letter of mine I left?" "Yes, sir." "Where is it?" "Posted, sir." "Posted! Wby, there wasn't any name or address on the envelope!" "There wient, sir; but I thought it must 'be in answer to one of them anonymous letters you've been getting lately!'

I Dentist to - Pay £25.1
I Dentist to Pay £25.1 "NEGLIGENT & UNSKILFUL" TREAT- MENT ALLEGED I A case of some interest to dentists was heard at Cardiff County-court to-day, in which Elizabeth Jenkins, wife of Davtid Jen- kins, an en gine-driver, sougtot to recover from Morgan Sains bury, St. Mary-street, Car- diff, whom counsel for plaintiff described as an unregistered dentist, JE30 as damages by reason of negligent and unskilful treatment. The defendant counter-claimed for ZZ 111., balance of payment for supplying new teeth. Mr. John Sankey (instructed by Messrs. Goorge David and Bvans) appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. A. Parsons (instructed by Mr. E. W. Pooook) for the defendant. Mrs. Jenkins, the plaintiff, who stated that she was the wife of an engine-drlver, said in May of last year the defendant's lady can- vasser took her to Sainsbury's shp wtith reference to having her teeth out. In answer to a question, defendant said he extracted teeth painlessly, and asked her to sit down and he would prove it to plaintiff. Sains- buiry took out one tooth from the top JaIW- at leaet, he nipped the top off. By appoint- ment she returned on June 7 to have the rest of the teeth out in the top jaw, and was aooompanied by a lady friend, named Mrs. Wynde. Defendant said, Oh, Mrs. Wynde has come to see you have some pain, but we will ahow her different." The witness sarid she hoped so. Silie told the defendant that she wanted the whole of the top set of teeth out, but sine consented, on the suggestion of defendant, to aliow two firm teeth at the back to remain. Defendant injected some stuff into her jaws, and, as she thought, pulled out the teeth. According to defen- dant, the injection was a very expensive American drug. Witness Felt Faint, I and on coming round remarked, I do hope that stuff does not affect the heart, because mine is weak." He replied, "Oh, no; it does not affect the heart." The plaintiff pad two guineas for the top set otf teeth, and arranged to pa<y 103. a week. When she next visited the defendant, in July, she informed him that he had left a lot of "bits" in her gums, and asked whetber he would remove them, but he said that that did not matter. The bottom row were subsequently taken out, but when ehe tried to wear the new set of teeth her gums got painful a.nd there were abscesses. She went to see Saiinsbury about it, and, in consequence of her weak state, she had to get someone to attend to her household duties. Mr. Sankey handed up, amidst some laughter, to his honour an advertising card of the defendant, on the back of which a nigger was depicted with three teeth in his hand and sayting, "It didn't hUIrt a bit." J udge Owien: At any rate, his ears stick out and his hair is standing on end. (Laugh- ter.) Medical evidence was called. Dr. Henry Campbell said that when he examåned the plaintiff there were seven visible stumps in the upper jaw, and they were decaying. Two abscesses had fonned owing to the presence of decayed teeth. The plaintiff must have suffered a good deal. Dr. T. Wallace, called for the defence, said he had examined the plaintiff, and sarid he found seven stumps in the upper jaw, which was a little irritable. Dr. Cantilkm gave similar evidence. Judge Owen said he thought it was a serious matter. The plaintiff had suffered a good deal, and he gave judgment for the plaintiff for L25 and costs.
Coal Trimmer's Death.I
Coal Trimmer's Death. I A COMPENSATION CLAIM in tne Cardiff County-court to-day (before .his Honour Judge Owen) an action for com- pensation was heard under the Workmen's Compensation Act, brought by Hannah Wride, 14, Augusta-street, Adamsdown, widow of Danson Wride, against Cory's Trading Company (Limited), Mount Stuart-square, Cardiff. Mr. John Sankey (instructed by Messrs. Lewis Morgan and Box) appeared for the applicant, and Mr. A. Parsons (instructed by Mr. Evan Davies) for the respondents. The respondents denied liability on the ground that the deceased's employment was not employment to which the Act, a-pplied, and that the accident did not arise out of, and in the course of, deceased's employment. Mr. EJarsons stated that the man was only a casual labourer. According to the evidenoe for the applicant and the opening statement of her counsel, the deceased was a hobbler, and the accident took place on the evening of December 11 last. Wride was engaged in plaoe of a regular man in a gang trtimming coal on the steamship St. Vincent, then lying in the East Bute Dock. Instead of breaking off work at the usual time, about eight o'clock in the, even- ing, lie men found t-ha-t the coal they were working upon, so far as that particular parcel of coal coming from the colliery was concerned, would be finished about ten or half-past ten, and they worked on until they had finished the trucks standing in the siding. The ladder by which the men went on board ship aft from the quay was a wooden one, some of the rungs of which were missing, and the ladder was almost flat up against the ship's side. When the first portion of coal had given out, and whilst waiting for more coal from the colliery, the deceased and others, along with the boat- swain of the ship, went ashore to a public- house. They returned, and work was resumed about a quarter-past eleven, and Wride was then missed, but it was thought that instead of working aft he had gone for- wa.rd. In the early morning it was found however, that Wride was not on board ship: and a search was made. His cap was found on the quay wall and his body taken from the water by the police, bein,g found between the ship and the quay wall directly under- neath the ladder. Evidence WM called on behalf of the respon- dents, the chief po-mt of which" was tht the men in gangs had no right to leave the &hip except at the supper hour without the per- mission of the leading trimmer. Brinsley John Llewellyn, the leading trimmer, said neither the deceased nor his companions had asked for permission. He did not see Wride when the others came back from the public-house, but he spoke to them on the subject and forgave them. One witness, a foreigner, named Blundell states that Wride was tipsy, and fell down on the siding on the way back from the public-house. He picked Wride up and tried to shake some life into him, and then left him to look for men on board to help him. His Honour: Why didn't you bring him along with you?-Veu, I could not carry him. His Honour: No, but you could have helped him. Did you go back to look after him afterwards?—No. His Honour: I think you behaved very badly. Mr. Sankey: Were you f--)und dead drmik yourself next day by a constable? Witness: Yes; but I vas quite sober that day. His Honour gave judgment for the appli- cant for X150 and costs. He did not believe a word of what Blundell had said, and his conduct was disgraceful. He was glad he was not an Englishman.
- I BRITISH v. GERMAN GOODS…
BRITISH v. GERMAN GOODS A Foreign Tender Accepted "I don't think we can possibly do this." That was the remark of Alderman Carey, chairman of the Cardiff Electric Lighting and Tramways Committee, to-day, and all the other members of the committee agreed with it, for it referred to the suggestion of the British Insulated and Helsby Cables Company, Limited, that the committee should allow them to reduce their tender for cables from E755 to £668 15s., in order to wrest the contract from a German firm. whose tender had been accepted at the lower figure. It will be remembered that at the meeting at which the tenders were opened Mr. Ellis, the electrical manager, stated that there was a combine amongst British cable manu- facturers, and the tender of the one German firm that sent in-the lowest tender on the list—was unanimously accepted. A report of the remarks made at that meeting had been brought to the notice of the British firm referred to, with the result that, in view of the commercial war between British a,nd German firms, they now expressed their readiness to reduce their tender, as stated, in order to be on a, level with their foreign rival firm. The committee, however, would not con- descend to fail in" with the suggestion, but Mr. Ellis was directed to write to the Ger- man firm, asking them to wire, before the oouncil meeting on Monday, whether they adhered to their tender.

The prooeedings were private. It was resolved that the Mayor, chairman, and the town-clerk should interview the general manager of the National Company, and afterwords, if accessary, the Poetmcaster- (lentral, with a view to the removal or modi- tJvtiam of the Government's refusal.
S. W. MINERS' WAGES
S. W. MINERS' WAGES APPLICATION FOR INCREASE Referred to Lord St Aldwyn. A quarterly meeting of the Conciliation Board for the coal trade of Monmouthshire and South Wales was held at the offices of the Coalownere' Association to-day for the purpose of considering the proposition from the men's eide to increase the general wage rate by Ili per cent. At present the rate stands at 4H per cent. above the standard of 1879, and 111 per cent. above the minimum fixed in the Concilia- tion Board agreement. If the men auoceeu in this application, which is considered doubtful, the wages will go up to 52i per cent. above the standard, or 22J per oeoit. above the minimum, which. under the last sliding scale agreement, represented an average selling price of large coal between 13s. 10 29d. and 14s. per ton. There was a good attendance of both sides of the board, and they held separate oon- sultations, which delayed the opening of the joint meeting until a quarter to twelve. Mr. F. L. Davit3 presided over the owners' side, and Mr. W. Abraham, M.P., over the work- men's side. The case for the workmen was very ably put by Mr. W. Brace, M.P., who claimed that the figures which he laid before the board fully justified the application which had been made for an increase of 111 per cent, in the wages. Not only the state of the trade generally, but the high price of small coal justified the increase now claimed. Mr. Davis replied to the arguments put forward by Mr. Brace, Shortly after one o'clock the two sides separated to consider an offer made. by the employers, but what that is has not trnns- pired. It is stated, however, that their audit showed that the average selling price for the last three months was 13s. lo.god.. which, according to the old sliding-soale, would justify the men in the detnand they are now making. At half-past one the two sides came to- gether again. Men Decline Compromise A long discussion ensued, amd the ownmw side suggested a compromise, without naming any figure.
