Detective in the Dock. CHARGED WITH STEALING JEWELLERY I Walt,er John Brooke, a railway detective, who was committed to Cheshire Quarter Sessions a week ago on a charge of stealing a purse, two £5 notes, and £4 in gold from a lady's drassing-ceuse while in transit on the London and North Western Railway between Llandudno and Chester on February 28, was brought up again at Chester on Satur- day 011 two fresh charges. The first was a case of stealing, on or about September 23, 1905, a, jxarcel containing a gen- tleman's gold hunter watch and a*lady's gold watch in transit from Coventry an Man- chester, The two watches, packed in a. box, were sent by Messrs. Makin and Sons, jewellers, Manchester, to Mr. 8. Yeomans, watch manu facturer, Coventry, to be repaired. Mr. Yeomans returned them, and t-hey reached London-road; Station, Man- cheater, but the vanman on his round of delivery discovered the box missing. When arrested on another charge, the two watches were found on prisoner. He was formerly stationed at Stockport Station, and on the day the watches were missed be bad to plass through London-road Station on his way to Exchange Station, Manchester. Ria explana- tion of being in possession of the watches was that o-n-e was has wife's, and the other he bought in a pawnshop. Tlle next charge against Brooks was of stealing two dress rings, the property of Miss Gertrude Arkhurst, Eocles, Manchester, in September, 1906. Miss Akhuret had been in Llandudno, and the rings were in her trunk. On her return home they were missing. One of the rings was a diamond and sapphire ring, and prisoner had exohanged it with a Flintshire policeman's wife for a single-stone diamond ring. The latter he was wearing when arrested, and the Flintshire policemain pa-wned the diamond and sapphire ring at a Chester pawnshop, believing it to be his wife's. In a box at prisonees house the police found 38 keyB, in addition, to nineteen found in his pockets. On both charges prisoner was oom.mitted for ,tria.l.
Buffeted by Big Waves. I RESCUE IN THE NORTH SEA I After perilous adventures in the North Sea, the captain and crew of six of the Nor- wegian brig Anna were landed at North Shields yesterday. On a voyage from Bo'ness to Norway the vessel was so badly buffeted by heavy seas that on Thursday she sprung a leak, and there was soon 6ft. of water in the hold. The men kent constantly at the pumps till Friday evening, when a Swedish sailing vo6mI came up. The Anna. was then 140 ?lmiles off the Tyne. Her crew lowered the lifeboat over the side, but it was imme- diately smashed to pieces, and the man who was in it to undo the tackling was only with great difficulty dragged out of the water, being much cut and bruised in the effort to save his life. The remaining boat was then got out, but it was also swamped. The Swedish vessel launched a boat. This, too, was carried away, and the shipwrecked men had almost given up hope when the Shields trawler. Sit. Louis, seeing distress signals flying, came up. The men on the Anna were then up to their waists in water on the deck. They threw overboard a lifebuoy to which a lino was attaclpfed, and by this means communi- cation with the trawler was effected, and the distressed men were dragged, one by one, through the water, clinging to a life- buoy. Three of them were in a state of collapse, but were brought round by restoratives. Within half an hour of the rescue being effected the Anna, with all her sails set, foundered.
I BAPTISMS IN THE DEE. Women Undergo a Chilly Ordeal A striking and picturesque scene was wit- nessed in Denbighshire yesterday, when five lady candidates were publicly baptised in the waters of the Dee at the pretty hamlet of Pontcysyllte, midway between Ruabon and Llangollen. Thousands of religious enthu- siasts cyclists and motorists flocked to wit- ness the ceremony in the Jordan of as the river Dee has been designated. From the adjoining cottage the five lady candidates .dressed in tfhin amd light cloth- ing, wended their way, one by one ,to the riverside .where they met by Deacon Barclay and conducted to mddiriver. The first lady, attired in spotless white umdorwent the try- ing crdeial bravely. Thp second stumbled while being immersed ,with the result that her feet appeared above the surface whilst her body was below. Considerably discon- certed, she regained her footing, and success- fully regained land. Moan while, ithe assembled choirs joilled in hymns and "AIlel-niae" with great fervour. The remaiming ladies faced the severe ordeal without the glightest (hesitation, although the water registered but 38deg. When the last candidate had been success- fully baptised, minister and deacon remained waistdeep in the river, and the former, having prayed, urged the spectators to follow the example of the ladies and submit to the solemn ordinance of baptism. This pressing invitation, however, passed without response, and the ceremony then concluded.
TOO WIDE A SWEEP. I Newport Lady Injured in Motor Accident I A lady and gentleman-Mr. Saunders a.nd Miss Davies, of Newport-met with an acci- dent near Usk to-day. They were proceed img towards tJsk, Mr. Saunders being on a motor cycle, with a side car attached, when, through making too wide a sweep going down the descent near Oak&eld, Lianbadoc, the machine ran into a bank and over- turned, throwing both the lady and gentle- men heavily to the ground. Dr. Jenkins was at once sent for, and found that Miss Davies was suffering from slight ooncussion of the brain, and ordered her removal to her home at Newport. Mr. Saunders was more fortunate, only receiving a shock, and there was little damage done to the machine. Mr. G. A. Secoombe, of Cardiff, who was passing by with a party in his motor-car at the time of the accident, very kindly con- veyed the party back to Newport.

Over a Million Members -a ——— A I REPRESENTED AT A.M.O; I Universal Old-Age Pensions "Utterly Impracticable." The A.M.C. of the Independent Order of Oddfellows, Manchester Unity, was opened to-day at Folkestone. The delegates, who numbered nearly 700, representing upwards of a million members, were welcomed by the mayor and the Arch- bishop of Canterbury. Mr. Hawkins, of London, the Grand Master, in his inaugural address, referred to old-age pensions. He said that subject must be dealt with by Friendly Societies alone, unless compulsory insurance was adopted by the State, and that was repugnant to and not consistent with the liberty of the subject. The hint at the establishment of such pensions was sop to those who had clamoured for it, but had never taken any step to prepare any solutions of the problem. He felt almost disposed to say that in his opinion a universal system of old age peneions was utterly impracticable. The ordinary -business of the meeting then proceeded.
Cardiff Burglary, I GUNMAKER'S SHOP BROKEN INTO I At about 11.30 last night the constable on duty discovered that the back premises of Mr. Septimus Chambers, gun,maker, Castle-street, Cardiff, had been broken into. The thieves made their way to the premises by way a court leading from Woman by- street, and gained admittance by breaking a window in the cartridge room. The intruders muet have evidently been disturbed, for they made off leaving their bdotY-aoout 1,000 cartridge cases, wads, and shot-in a sack in the backyard. As a result of immediate inquiries on the part of tihe police, three young lads have been arrested, amd will be brought before the magistrates to-morrow.

A CHILLY WHITSUNTIDE I Hoiidaymaikers will conclude, after yester- day's experience, that the "cold days" which go often a., ict the middle of May have taken themselves too seriously. Saturday was cold enough, but in London the sun shone brightly for over nine honns, and, sheltered from the biting wind, it was possible to forget that the thermometer in the shade was a.bout 30deg. lower than a week ago. But yestmfay there was practically no sunshine to redeem the situation, and pleasure-seekers out of doors were not always successful in their quest. Since the last glorious week- end, which is likely to be more gratefully remembered than the Whrtsxcn holidays, the thermometer has shown a steady descent. Here aia the maxima 4ii2d nmiixna for the week:— > Deg. Deg.

"HE HAS RUINED ME" Grave Charge Against Music-Hall Agent. Brixton Flat Scene. I I ACTRESS SWOONS WHILE GIVING I EVIDENCE. I Arthur Hampel (28), a music-hall agent, of Glenshaw-ma nsions, Brixton-road, surren- dered to his bail at Lambeth on Saturday on a charge of assaulting an actress named Victoria, Beauchamp. At the hearing last week the proeecutrix, an attractive-looking young woman of twenty years, alleged that when she went to defendant's flat at Glen- ehaw-manaiona on the afternoon of the 7th inet., to see him on the subject of a pro- fessional engagement, he asked her into a private sitting-room, and there, in spite of a vigorous resistance on her part, com- mitted the assault complained of. The Prosecutrix was now re-called for cross- examination by Mr. Armstrong. She said it was not a. fact that she accused a violinist at the Prince of Wales Theatre, Birming- ham, of improperly assaulting her during the rehearsal of tihe pantomime. Mr. Armstrong: Is it not a fact that you were discharged in consequence of tfliat com. plaint, and were never al lowed to appear on the stage at all? Prosecutrix (bursting into tears): Never, never. I left because of ill-health. Further cross-examined, prosecutrix said she went away to Skegness with her mother and little brother. For a. short time, prose- cutrix said, slhe lived at an address in Edlr- mingham with a lady fniend. Mr. Armstrong: What naane did you pass under? Shall I remind you? Prosecutrix made no response. Mr. Francis: What name? Can you remem- ber what it was ?—Prosecutrix did not reply. Mr. Armstrong put it to prosecutrix that for six months she lived at the address in question with a man named Cook as man and wife. Prosecutrix made no reply, but —— Collapsed in the Chair 4 I in which she was seated. Mr. Armstrong (to the magistrate): You see what we have to deal with, sir-a woman usad to all the artifices of the stage. Mr. Francis: No, no. I am not going to have comments of that sort. Mr. Puroell (prosecuting) remarked that it was evident that prosecutrix was not in a fit state to piroceed with her evidence, and, the magistrate agreeing, prosecutrix was car- ried out of court. Miss Amaiiie Adajns said she assisted her aunt, Mrs. Brett, who kept a. boarding-house at Kennington-raad. She had known prose- cutrix since she came there on April 23 as a. lodger. On May 6 she went out with prose- cutrix. At Leioegter-eQuare they met Mr. Hampel, whom witness had known as a former boarder at her aunt's house. She introduced Miss Beauchamp to prisoner. Mksb Beauchamp told prisoner that she was on her way to a dancing master. Defendant said: Well, I am a music-hall agent. If you are crything of a dancer perhaps I could put you in my troupe. If you will come up to my place to-morrow at four o'clock I can see you there." Witness was at home the next afternoon when prosecutrix returned. Prosecutrix called for some hot water, iihe went upstairs, and found prosecutrix crying very nmoh. She i-s-ked prosecutrix what was the matter. Prosecutrix did not wt first answer, but afterwards exclaimed, Oth, that beast of a man." Witness asked, What do you mean P', to which prosecutrix replied, "Mr. Hampel," a, id added that that gentle- man had misconducted himself. Misa Beawobamp, who had recovered her composure, was again recalled for croea- examifcation. She said Mr. Grice wae ihe landlord of her lodgings at Birmingham. Mr. Armstrong: How long will you venture ptecLge your oath wae it you were at Mr. Grice's house? I tell you. About six months?—It would be about that. Did you pass as Mrs. Cook there?—Yes, for my own protection, I did. Did you have a bedroom and sitting room? —Yes. Is this Mr. Cook Mills your uncle?—Yes. Does he go in the name of Cook?—Well, he did for my protection. Will you swear that Cook, or Mills, was not at the house every day during the whole six months?—He came in and out as he went to business. And he used to Come Up to Your Bedroom I and you were locked in for hours together?— No. Further cross-examined, prosecutrix said defend-ailt offered her an engagement with- out being asked. Questioned as to the cir- cumstances of the alleged assault, prose- cutrix said she shouted out and begged defendant to let her go. When she left the flat she got into a 'bus. As the 'bus was moving off defendant jumped on. He paid- both the fares. Mr. Pprcell (re-examining): You have told us that at Birmingham you passed as a mar- ried woman. Why was that?—Because I thought it would protect me from other men. I thought if they knew that they would not annoy me. And the man whose name you took was that of the man who has been described as your uncle ?—Yes Is it the faoot that he is not your reflation? —No, no relation, but he is a great friend of all our family. With that man at any time has any im- propriety taken place with you?—No. MTS. Ada Brett, the landlady of the house at which prosecutrix lives, was called, and spoke to finding prosecutrix in a distressed state, after her return home on May 7. She kept on saying, "That dreadful man. He has ruined me." itfiss Emily BaJI, who, at the time of the alleged ar-Fault, was a servant at a flat at OleWhaw-mansions, said she heard A Scuffle Overhead on the afternoon in question. It soumdted as if someone was being pulled along the floor.! Oross-exaaninod, witness said she heard noises 011 other occasions. DetoeUve,%erg,mnt Hawkins stated that when arrested by Inspector Keys and himeeoLf prisoner aipipealed to his lady typewriter to say whether she heard a struggle or a lady scream- The lady replied t-hst ah-e did not. Mr. Puroetll: Up to that time had you or Inspector Keys said anything to him about a struggle or a lady sen-earning-? Polioosergieamt Hawkins: No, sir. Mr. Puroell said that was the caso for tihe proseoution. Mr. Armstrong submitted that there was not "a rag of evidence" to go to a jury. Mr. Francis replied that he thought there was sufficient evidence to warrant the case heajag sent for trial. Mr. Francis remanded prisoner for amother week, and refused to accept hadL
POLICE AT THE PLOUGH. Bichard Harley, landlord of the Plough Inn, Kisca, was summoned at Newport on Saturday for permitting drunkenness on May 11; and a navvy, named George Adams, was summoned for being drunk in the house. Mr. Lyndon Cooper appeared for the defence. The evidence of the police was that Adams was drunk, stooping over, and muttering. When they got him up on has legs he staggered out of the house, and on walking to the Church House Mr Bowyer, the land- lord, refused him admission, as he was drunk. Harley denied that the man was drunk, a.nd said he only had two pints of beer in the house. Adams also denied being drunk. The Magistrates adjourned the oaee for a week. They were divided as to the result, and thought that a re-hearing, with perhaps other justices acting, would be desirable.
I HOBBLING A SHEEP. I George Price, farmer, Oefncrib, was sum- moned at Pontypool on Saturday for ill- treating sheep by hobbling them on May 7. Police-const able Hourigan stated that a sheep had its right foreleg tied to a collar round its neck, and there was a sore about ltin. long on its leg. Witness showed the sore to the defendant, who said, "It's not much. I lost a, sheep on the line last year, and I had to do something." Defendant was fined 20s.
HORSE BEATEN WITH A PITCHFORK. I Henry Berry, haulier, Pontnewydd, was summoned at Pontypool Police-court on Saturday by the Cwmbran Colliery Com- pany for ill-treating a horse by beating it with a pitchfork on May 8. Mr. R. F. Lyne, Newport. prosecuted, and defendant was represented by Mr. E. W. Evans. George Davies, a youth, said he saw defendant pick up a pitchfork, with which he struck the horse several blows. Defendant gave a total denial to the charge of cruelty. The Bench fined defendant 15s. for the cruelty charge and 7s. 6d. JEor breakipg the pitchfork-
COLONIAL COUNCIL A FAILURE, SAYS MR. DEAKIN I Correspondence Would Have Been as Good. PUBLIC ATTITUDE GRATIFYING I Reuter's representative has had an inter- view with the Hon. Alfred Deakin, Prime Minister of Australia, who, accompanicd by Mrs. Deakin, leaves London to-day on his return home. Asked whether the results of the conference had come up to his expecta- tions, Mr. Deakin replied:- If you mean by results the resolutions w hfoh have been unanimously passed at the conference, I should be obliged to say no, because on several of the most impor- tant subjects we not only failed to induce an acceptance of our proposals, but even to receive a definite approach towards them. Something, it is true, was done in nearly every case, but that something could have been accomplished by correspondence, and that is why I say that if we judge the conference by its official resolutions we cannot claim ca.ise for congratulation. Asked if there were not another side to the picture, the Commonwealth Premier said:- Yes, if you look to the general, indirect, and the unexpected results, one is justified in assuming a very different tone. The cordiality with which all the representa- tives of the self-governing dominions have been met on .every hand, the consideration shown them personally in the Conference and out of it, the interest manifested in their official proceedings, and the sym- pa;thetic manner in which their utterances have been received, constitute a total effect not to be measured, which I will not attempt to estimate at this stage. At present, speaking for myself, I cannot see the forest for the trees, but I am satisfied that the forest is there. Asked what, in his opinion, would be likely to be the effects of the Conference upon the people of Australia, Mr. Deakin replied that it was impossible to say at the moment. In reply to a question whether the Con- ference would tend to closer relations between the Colonies and Mother Country, Mr. Deakin answered: — Yes, undoubtedly, every such meeting every interchange of views contributes to that end. Whatever friction there may have 'been or whatever friction may have occurred during our visit was but indi- vidual and transitory. It is forgotten already and will not be recalled. We shall look back upon this Conference, remember- ing the great idea", which inspired our gatherings. —————————————— i
SOUTH WALES COAL TRADE I WESTERN DISTRICT. I FEW NON-UNIONISTS: PAYMENT FOR LAMPS. The monthly meeting was held at Swansea on Saturday.-It was reported that the central executive had decided to have show- cards in the first week in June to ascertain the number of non-Unionists now working in the district. It was stated that the number was very email. Several collieries were stated to be affected in regard to payment for the use of safety lamps, and onthe U-wyn Colliery, Llanelly-aeked permission to give notices to force the question of a 71 per cent, increase.—The meeting decided to allow this, and the question as regards other collieries was referred to the district committee. Other questions, such as the abrupt dis- missal of the secretary of the lodge at Skewen, the taring of trams, and the h,a-mient rates, were also referred, to the dis- trict. I ANTHRACITE DISTRICT. NON-UNIONISTS: HOPES OF SETTLEMENT I At the monxniy uicexang or Ule Ani/nracite District of Miners. held at Swansea on Saturday, the position of the district as regards non-Unionist labour and the proba- bility of a stoppage under the notices now current was explained by the agents- The position wae declared, to be most hopeful. At the beginning of the month there were about 400 non. Unionists working in the dis- trict, and the rramber had already been reduced to one-half. The notices given applied to 62 collieries—in most of which no non-Unionistfl were employed. Seven of the colliery owners have agreed to fall in with the men's desires and employ only Unionist labour. Fifty-five of the collieries are still affected by the notices. Mr. J. D. Morgan (agent) expressed the confident opinion that before the expiration of the notices matters would be amicably arranged, and that, therefore, no stoppage of work would be rendered necessary. It was stated that the Ynyscedwyn Colliery proprietors have absolutely refused a prof- fered price list, a.nd closed the pit. EAST GLAMORGAN. WINDSOR OOLLIEBY SETTLEMENT. I The monthly meeting was held at Caer- philly on Saturday, Mr. B. J. Crew, Caer- philly, presiding. The Agent (Mr. H. Jenkins) reported that the long-standing grievance at tha Windsor Colliery, Abertridwr, in connec- tion with tihe screens had been practically settled. Messrs. John Davies and H. Jenkins, minesrs' agents, had reported the proposed settlement to the men, and advised them to accept, with the result that the terms had been accepted unanimously, and all that remained now to be done was to affix the signatures of both parties. Terms bad also been agreed to in connection with the clod question, Nine-foot Scam, Llanbradaah Col- liery. Negotiations had also been conducted with a view of arranging a price-list at the New Ererglyn Colliery, Oaerphilly, and the agent hoped that at an early date they would be able to complete the list. Nothing of a practical nature had yet been done in con- nection with the question of prices for the Nine-foot Seam, Windsor Colliery, beyofad the inspection of the seam. Principal Griffiths, of the South Wales and Monmouthshire University College, Cardiff, addressed the delegates respecting the pro- posal to catablish a school of mining for the South Wales coalfield. The delegates expressed themselves as heartily in sympathy with the aims and objects of the movement, and a unanimous vote of thanks was passed for the principal's address. I EASTERN VALLEYS. I HAULIERS' AND EIDERS' WAGES. The monthly meeting of the Eastern Valleys District of Miners was held at Pontypool on Saturday, Mr. W. Hughes, Cwmbran, presiding. Mr. Jamas Winstone, the agent, reported that he had failed to effect a settlement of the riders' wage-rate at the Tirpentwys and British Top Pits, and the question would have to be referred to the hauliers' joint committee. He had failed to come to an agreement with respect to the application of the Cwmbran surface hauliers and screen-men for an increased rate of wages, and also as to the price-list for the Black Vein at the Blaenavon Colliery. A show of cards will take place at all the collieries during the first two weeks in June.
SILENT, DEPRESSED, AND I MOROSE. HOLLYBUSH MAN COMMITS I SUICIDE. I Mr. J. B. Walford held an inquest on Satur- day on the body of David Davies, farmer, Hollybush, who was found hanging on the previous day. Deceased was 66 years of age, and had been suffering from weakness, which made him low-spirited. He was stated to have been of a religious disposition, and had never threatened to commit suicide. His wife discovered him hanging to a beam in s-cxme outbuildings, with his feet a little from the ground- She did not cut him down, and he was left hanging for about five or ten minutes. Deceased's daughter said that her father looked on suicide as a very wrong thing. John Davies, deceased's brother, deposed to cutting down the body. There was a ladder in the barn, and it appeared that deceased had put it against the bearn and kicked it away. Dr. Johnson, Blackwood, stated that the mam. had been silent, depressed, and morose, suffering from acute melancholia and chronic lung trouble, but had no delusions. A verdict was returned of "Suicide whilst I of unsound mind."
A FOOLISH JACK ASHORE. I A sailor, named John M'Pherson, who I an address at 39, Travere-etreet, Barry, was a very silly Jack ashore at Newport, as his case before the Uefaade magistrates on Sat-urday showed. Paid-off at Barry with £ 4, he drank that, as well as the money he got by pawning his clothes. In his cops he went into the house of Mrs. Charlotte Starr, in Boltrstreet, on Fri- day after-noon and grossly insulted her. When Mrs. Starr indignantly ordered him out he asked, "And is this the way you treat foreigners? "—Pined 21s., or a month.

SPRING MEETING AT I PENARTH. 1 Proceedings in connection with the annual spring meeting of the Glamorgan Club com- menoed on the Penarth links on Saturday with a OaJcutta competition. Bright and bracing weather prevailed, but a rather cold wind blew from the east. The course was in modera.tely good order, but some of the greens proved Very deceptive. A feature of the competition was the general failure of the players at putting, and no less accom- plished a golfer tha.n John Duncan, jun., missed four short putts in succession, two from only about eighteen inches from the hole. This, apparently, indicated that the greens were playing trickily, although one veteran at the game would have it that in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred a bad pwtt k; simply due to a bad stroke and nothing else. A player who started in terri- fic form was James Hunter, but after doing a 4 and a 2 at the first two holed he fell off considerably^ and was 5j down at the finisih. Altogether 55 cards were taken out., and the following were returnoo:- Holes. Score, received. W. A. E. Pyman 21 up 11 down Paxker Hagart-Y 1 2 C. Carey Thomas. 4 „ 2 „ H. C. Vivian 4 2 » F. T.

The meeting will be continued to-day with medal and bogey competitions.
I RADIR CHAMPIONSHfp. I The third round for the Radyr champion- ship was concluded on Saturday, and H. Symonds, W. T. Davies, S. B. Haslam, and Dr. Boyd are the four who remain in the semi-final. A match in which great interest was shown was played on Saturday between W T. Davies, the holder of the trophy, ami H. B. Winfield, whose chances of carrying eff the honour this year were fancied by a good maaiy. Winfield, however, had an off day. W. T. Davies, on the other hand, played very steadily from beginning to end. The game started with some promise of being a tight one. W. T. Davies took the first and second i'l 4'05, but Winfield knocked one off by taking tho third in an excellent 4. W. T. Davies, however, resumed his lead of 2 up by taking the fourth in 3. Winfield followed with another great hole in 4 at No. 5—two below bogey; but after that he was inclined to be a little unsteady, and at the turn W. T. Davies had increased his lead to 3 up, with a medal score for the nine holes of 40. W. T. Davies played quite as steadily coming home He won the match by 5 up and 4 to play. Up to the fifteenth green he had taken only one over bogey. H. Bymowls and W. H. Taylor played an interesting game, and, although the former won by a fair margin, Taylor's oard included some remarkably good holes. In the semi-final, to be played off this week, Dr. Boyd meets S. B. Haslam and W. T. Davies mosts H. Symonds. MONTHLY MEDAL AT RADYR. I There were a gooa many entries lor the Radyr monthly medal on Saturday.

I PROFESSIONAL INTERNATIONAL MATCH. J IRELAND BEATS SCOTLAND. A,t Port-rush trie nrst international 7metoh between teams of professionals representing Ireland and Sootland resulted in favour of Ireland. The Scotsmen who had not a strong side, did not show to very great advan.ta,ge in the singles. C. Neaves, of Los- aiemouth, was the only visiting representa- tive to win his match. J. Edmundson, of Portrush, played a fine game, and quite out- classed his opponent, Bob Simpson, of Car- noustie. In the end, Ireland won the singles by 9 pointe to 2. I PARLIAMENTARY HANDICAP.

Bowen went round in 80 or 1 under bogey, which, seeing that on Tuesday he went round in 81, shows that he is in excel- lent fettle just now.

TRANSVAEL CRISIS. I A GENERAL STRIKE I I Called for To-morrow. I CHINESE MAY BREAK OUT I Delegates from 27 producing mines met yesterday and unanimously decided to call a. general strike of the skilled miners for Tuesday (to-morrow) of all the producing dines affiliated to the Chamber of Mines. This means that all the miners will be called out except those on the Bobirison group. On the latter not more than two machines will be given to one man. Tuesday (says the "Daily Chronicle") will disclose the situation fully. The possibilities are very grave on account of the Chinese, who may try to break out. The refusal of the mineowners to arbitrate has influenced public opinion in favour of i the men, and their brutal sta;tement that there is nothing to arbitrate about has infurited the miners.

[The Indian Agitation DENOUNCED BY LOYAL SIKHS The Sikh community has issued an official manifesto, dated from the Golden Temple at Amritsar, expressing contempt for political agitators and proclaiming the loyalty of the Sikhs. The manifesto declares that British, ruie, compared, with all prerioos, has broug-ht peaoe, wealth., knowledge, atrwi religioua liberty, amd adjures all Sikhs to abstain from participation in or ocnmtenancing any political moveaaeDt embarrasaLng: to the Government.—Renter. A NATIVE PROTEST. The Bombay of India" states that the fodkwiug telegram has been despatched to the Secretary of State for India The council of the Bombay Presidency Association desires earnestly to represent that the Indian public are intensely grieved and coinoerned by the deportation of Lrla Lajpa-t Rai under an Act nearly a c-entury old, passed in times when British power was not so firmly established as now. To their minds the strength of British power shoudl, 7 in wisdom and policy, preclude all attempts at Tesorting to methods capable of perpetrat- ing groes injustice on individuals. a.nd exciting unnecessary appreihensioue as to the liberty of the subject. In Lajpat Rai's case, the people are greatly apprehensive of the probability of injustice. In the Punjab various Government measures, such as Colonisation and Land Alienation Amendment Acts, increase of carnal rates, increase of the laud revenue, Ac., are all obvious causes for a great deal of excitement and unrest. And, unfortu- nately, owing to violent ntteTECnoes of several Anglo-Indian organs, the information placed before the authorities has been exaggerated. The council of the association prays that a public pronouncement should be made of the sources, character, and substance of the information on which so grave a step has 'been taken, and that. a representative commission of iawjuiry should be appointed to report on the present excited state A important parts of the country."
