VITRIOL OUTRAGE. I A Young Woman's Distressing Appearance. PUZZLING FEATURES IN TRIAL I The jury at Leicester Assizes to-day resume the hearing of a puzzling case of vitriol- throwdogr. The sufferer—supposed to be the subject of mistaken identity—is Miss Ellen Peck, whoee disfigured face presented a dis- tressing spectacle in court on Saturday, when the trial commenced. On the nigflit of January 24 Miss Peck (who is very popular among her circle of friends) had sulphuric acid daehed into her face as she was about to enter her lodgings by the side entry. The sight of one eye was destroyed, and that of the other damaged. Miss Peck saw a dark shadow just before the acid was thrown, but whether of a ma.n or a woman she could not tell, a" the person, whoever it wae, had been concealed behind a garden wall. Mr. Ryland Adkins, M.P., and Mr. M'Curdy, on behalf of the prosecution, suggect tha.t Herbert Henry Wildman, a dyer, aged 21, was the author of the outrage, and it is his guilt or innocence that the jury have to determine. The theory of the prosecution is tlhat Wild- man did not even know Mies Peok. But there was another young woman, named Miss Wilkinson, lodging at the same house, with whom he was acquainted. Miss Wilkinson and Wildman were in the employ of the same firm of dyers and cleaners, Miss Wilkinson being in charge of a receiving shop and Wild- uian a presser at the works. It was the duty of Miss Wilkinson to see that the goods were properly pressed, and she had returned some garments to be pressed again. It is alleged that Wildman resented this, and on one oooa- eion declared that he would "do Miss Wilkin- son one." On January 15 Wildman was dismissed because, so it w.as alleged, he had gone out for a drink and had been impertinent to his employer. On the evening of the same day a woman, whom the prosecution declared was Wildman's wife, bought some sulphuric acid at a chemist's shop, and it was plaoed in a small bottle similiar to one found where the acid was thrown. Next morning Miss Wilkin- son received a post-card on which was written the one word, Remember." Eight days later the outrage occurred. On January 29 Miss Wilkinson received a letter in capital letters (as before):- I failed three weeks ago, again last Thnre- day, but remember. Three weeks previous to this Miss Wilkinson had found some acid stains on her dress. uno/t evidence, aoooraing to tne prosecution, pointed to the fact that Miss Wilkinson was the intended victim. A lady's motor cap was found in the garden from which the vitriol was thrown. Thait cap tad oritginailly been white or cream, but had been dyed blue. The headgear was similar to one which had been worn by Wildman's wife in the previous autumn and the early winter; it was then white. A waistcoat and a coat belonging to Wild- ma-n were also found to be stained by acid; but it was admitted that in the work on which he was engaged at the works he would have to use vitriol. Miss Wilkinson, in her evidence, admitted that she had been told by a. woman that another man, whom she named. had threatened to blind her.
Girl's Body in a Pond. I A PONTLOTTYN TRAGEDY. I Polioe-sergeant Gammon, together with other officers, recovered from a pond in the Penbryth-road, near Pontlottyn, this morn- ing the body of Helen Da vies, nineteen, daughter of David Da-vies, colliery overman, 21, Martin-street, Fochriw. The girl was in service with Mr. John Thomas, a superintendent of the Prudential Assurance Company at Pontlottyn. She left her place on Saturday nigfht about eight o'clock with the intention of going home. An hour later she called to see her sister, who is also in service at Pontlottyn, and then left to cross the mountain to Foohriw. Some men, who were walking near the pond, which is situate between Pontlottyn and Foohriw, found a. girl's coat and hat on the bank. They waded into the water, which is only about 4ft. or 5ft. deep, but failed to find a body. Grappling irons were procured by the police, and the girl's body was recovered, aa stated.
20 PER CENT. ENOUGH. I Judge and Interest in a Money Lending I Transaction. Messrs. Fieldinge, money lenders, of Southampton-row, on Saturday (before Mr. Justice Grantham) sued Mr. Le Sueur, who was private secretary to the late Mr. Cecil Bhodes, for £300, alleged to be due in respect of a loan. A Captain Parker, an Irish gentleman, was co-defendant with Mr. Le Sueur. Mr. Matthews, counsel (or the plaintiffs, said that last year Mr. Le Sueur was living in London, and got hie friend. Oaptam Parker, to put his signature to a promissory note for LL,DW. Mr. Le Sueur's object was to raise as much money as he could upon the note. He seemed to have tried several money. lenders, said counsel, before he went to Messrs. Fieldings The latter agreed to advance E200, the -bargain being that only J3300 should be paid 'back if the note were met at the end of three months. This, said Mr. Matthews, worked out at 100 per oent. interest. Counsel for the defendante eaid that 20 per cent. interest was enough. One of his clients, Lieutenant Parker, was an officer in the Scots Greys. He had met Mr. Le Sueur during the South African War. The plaintiffs had ascertained his position be- fore they made the advance. The judge said that he thought 20 per cent. sufficient, considering the position, of the defendants. Their position made it certain that they would discharge their debts. Judgment was given accordingly.
A SCARCITY IN BEAUTY. I Diffioulty in Di-soovering Lovely Women Twelve beautiful women are being sought for in vain. Jfr Flack, the secretary of The British and Colonial Druggist," despite his efforts to procure twelve beauties for the Healtheries Exhibition, which is to be held itn November at tihe Horticultural-hall, is almost despair- ing of success. Applications are numerous enough from those who claim to be beautiful, but so far their charms have failed to make any impression on the judge. This is one of the applications received: My dear Mr. Flack,—I am sure I cannot adequately describe my charms in a letter, but will you please meet me at Liverpool- street Station at twelve noon? I shall wear a small piece of pink ribbon in my hat, and should you think me worthy of selection I shall consider it no liberty on your part if you come up and speak to S16. If, however, you should not think ime pretty enough, please walk by a.nd say nothing. The applicant was unsuccessful, for, as it warn explained to a press representative, **her beauty had been disguised." Personal applications also liame been made, and the offioes of The British and Colonial Druggist" have been besieged by a huge crowd of women, all clamouring to see Mr. Flack. It is evidently an all-aged' competition," j'emarked that gentleman to a pressman, "for many, I am sure, will never see their seven- tieth birthday again. I told the housekeeper to guard the door, and whilst she was busily answering inquiries I made a hurried exit by the back door, and spent the rest of the day at Windsor." At the Heailthenes Exhibition the twelve successful candidates will be required to submilt to face massage and hairdressing operations.
CARDIFF FINANCES. I Messrs. J. 8. Taylor and J. D. Edwards, the Cardiff elective auditors, reported to-day to the finance committee of the city oounoil, in regard to the urban rates' department, that since the advent of the city treasurer and controller (Mr. John All cock) great praise was due for the efficient manner in which this department was worked. The actual amount of irrecoverable rates was considerably less than in former years. In the electric light accounts the outstanding ir recoverable arrears were rather high, but the irreoover- ables were lower tha.n in former years. The collection of water rentals was nearly per- feet, and the irreooverabies were lower even than last year.
Wiu.>m David Proseer, a deserter from the I 3rd Battalion Welsh Regiment, who was arrested at Aberdare, was at Merthyr to-day remanded to await an escort.

Dr. Carlton rendered temporary assistance, and the man was taken home and att-ended. by Dr. Hill.
SUDDEN RUSH OF WATER I Pit Sinker Drowned. I Particulars were received yesterday of a serious accident at the Snowdown Colliery of the Kent Coal Concessions Company at Nonington, between Dover and Canterbury. It appears that thirteen men were engaged in the pit bottom, some of them on an ad- vanced bore-hole 385 feet below the surface, when it was noticed that the side of the pit sounded hollow. On a wedge being pulled out water rushed through into the pit with great force. Signals were at once given, and all the men, with the exception of one, clung to the hooks at the side 01 the pit, while several started to climb up the pumps. A man named Knight was unfortunately drowned, the body being recovered after he had been in the water seven minutes. The rest of the men were brought to the sur- face.
MAYOR'S HOUSE BURGLED. I Lady Seized by the I hroat I A burglarious outrage was committed at the residence of the Mayor of Wrexham yes- terday morning. It appears that Miss Hughes, the mayor's eldest daughter, was awakened by a noise in her bedroom, and was horrified to see a man on his hands and kneee oil the bedroom floor. On discovering that his presence had been detected, the burglar made a rush at M.iss Hughes, and, seizing her by the throat, a desperate struggle ensued. The mayoress was awakened the noise, and at once screamed out, upon,which the burglar loosened his grasp of Miss Hughes and dashed downstairs. The mayor, who is umfartuniately deal. was then roused, and, seizing a revolver rushed after the burglar, but, although he saw him jumping through a window which he had used as the means of entering the house, he got clean away. A number of gold amd silver airtictes are missing.
SAN FRANCISCO'S PLIGHT I The strike situation in San Francisco has become worse and with fresh Japanese troubles almost daily airisinig, Sa/n Francisco is in a very bad plight. At present there are on strike 2,000 laundry workers, 500 telephone girls, bOO electrical workers, 500 beer bottlers, 300 coopers, and fully 2,000 others of allied trades and tramcar employees. Owing to the strikes and lack of money, building has practically come to a standstill, so that many thousands who would work axe idl-e. Rent and prices of food are almost doubled, and there is every prospect, before a. return to a noamiail situation can be made, of a protracted struggle between the Labour Unions and employers.

A NARROW ESCAPE ————— a —.———- Cardiff Men's Boating Adventure EXCITWG SCENE OFF SOLLY PLUCK AND SEAMANSHIP TO THE RESCUE. Three young men from Cardiff had an exciting experienoe in the Bristol Channel on Sunday morning, and narrowly escaped drowning. Messrs. J. Ferrier and W. Ferrier, of 19, St. Andrew's-creeoent, and Mr. E. B. Davies, of 28, bl&nbleddian-gardens, engaged a skiff— the Firefly-and about ten o'clock they pro- ceeded down Channel with the intention of reaching Barry Island. When about midway between Lavernock and Sully, however, the weather became so rough and squally that they decided to return, and whilst turning the boat around a wave caught her broad- side on and upset her. The young men clung to the keel for fully half an hour, and made signals of distress as best they could. Meanwhile the perilous position of the Firefly had been noticed from shore, and Mr. Dan Rees, of Sully House, the Cardiff magis- trates'-clerk, ordered his punt to be put and got two of the men aboard, the being rescued by Messrs. Ivor PeAes and Dan Rees, junior, the former of whom swam out to a aadling boat which was anchored off the beach, and in it rescued the third man. The coastguards at Lloyd's Station, Nell's Point, Barry Island, having been informed of the affair, signalled to the Barry lifeboat John Wesley, which was launched within ten minutes of the time of the signal. In charge of Mr. Evan Owen, the lifeboat made for the scene of the accident, but on the way the tug Con- tract, was met with the rescued men OlD board, and the Firefly in tow. The three were landed at the Barry Pier- head, and taken to the Customs lodge. After- wards they proceeded home. There were hundreds of people on Sully beach, and they had a wildly exciting time, for with every dip of the upturned boat it was expected that one or other of the three men would be washed off. Interview with One of the Men Mr. E. Bo wen Davies, of 28, Llanbleddian. gardens, who was one of the unfortunate occupants of the boat, said that in company with Messrs. J. and W. Ferrier, 19, St. A-ndrew's-crescent, Cardiff, just after ten o'clock on Sunday morning 1 he went for a sail down Channel. The boat belonged to what is known as the mosquito class. Between Lavernock Point and Sully Island," he continued, two heavy seas struck us. The first half-filled the boat with water, and the second completely filled her. We were up to our waists in water, when the boat turned over, and we were, of course, thrown into the heavy sea. We swam about and clung to the keel of the craft, but the waves turned the boat over and over, so that it was with great difficulty that we could maintain our hold." How far were you from the shore?" About two miles." Do you feel any ill-effects from your long immersion in the water?" "Oh, no. I am just going to have a bath now, and I think I shall be all right." Nntt time did the accident happen?" "I cannot tell exactly, but my watch stopped at 11.40." HONOUR WHERE IT IS DUE. I To the Editor of the "Evening Express." Sir,—I was greatly astonished on reading the account of the boating adventure at Lavernock in to-day's morning papers to find that it was practically incorrect from start to finish. Personally, I do not care to inter- fere in a matter of this kind, but I feel that honour should be given where honour is due Being with a 'number of other persons an eye-witnees of the whole incident, I beg to bring to your notice the following facts. About eleven o'clock yesterday morning I observed that a, sailing-boat was in distress and sinking off Lavernook Point. I at once telephoned to Penarth for assistance, and informed Mr. Dan Rees, of Sully House, what had happened. Within three minutes of receiving the news Mr. Dan Rees, in a small punt, was making for the upturned sailing boat. Mr. Rees was first on the scene, and, in a very heavy sea, succeeded in a most gallant manner in getting aboard his very small punt two of the unfor- tunate men, the other clinging to the sailing boat. Mr. Ivor Rees and Mr D. Rees, jun., were on the beach at Sully, immediately following Mr. Dan Rees. They had one small sailing boat of the Mosquito class anchored in Sully Sound, but could not get to their boat owing to Mr. Dan Rees having taken the point. Mr. Ivor Rees, with- out more ado, acd with the whole of his clothes on, swam off to the Mosquito and boarded her. and then he and Mr. Dan Rees, jum., bailed out to the scene of the ditsasteir, and rescued the remaining man off the up- turned boat. At that time the tug was not in eight, amd when she did come anywhere new the scene of the accident she turned back, apparently not having witnessed what was taking place. The rescued and rescuers were practically rounding Su-lly Island when the tug came up, and Mr. Bees, no doubt thinking it was better for the men that they should at once be put in a place of warmth and comfort, put them aboard the tug under great difficulty. I am sorry to trouble you in a matter of this kind, but I feel that such a fine piece of seamanship and pluck as that displayed by the brothers Rees should receive some recog- nition. Everything I have put before you is abso- lutely correct, and can be borne out to the letter by some hundreds of spectators who witnessed the accident. It should arteo be mentioned that Mr. Slhranaghan, jun., and several others of Penarth, attempted to get a boat out, but owing to the state of the weather she was jxracticaUy swamped before she could be got into the water.—I am, Ac., HAROLD M. LLOYD. 21, Castle-street, Cardiff. June 17. GALLANT BROTHERS REES. I To the Editor of the "Evening Express. &r,-About U.30 on Sunday morning the mosquito Firefly ww swamped in a nasty eea off Lavernock Point- The crew of three men held on to the boat, and were helpless whilst she rapidly drifted down channel. Mr. Dan Rees (the cleric to the Cardiff who resides at Swanbrodge, being informed, of the accident immediately put off alone m a small boa.t, and, in 6pite of the bad sea runodnig, succeeded in gcrtting two of the men into his boat. In the mean- time another small sailing craft (manned by Mr. lvor Rees and Air lian Rees, junior) had put off from Swarubridge beach and picked up the third man. By this time & tug had arrived on the scene, and the shipwrecked men were transferred to her, their sailing yacht was taken in tow am d later were landed at Barry. None of the crew off the Firefly wor* mem- bers of the Penarth Yacht Club. I hope steps will be tAken. to bring tbe4 gallant conduct of the Messsrs.

I 0 I CARDIFF MAN'S PLIGHT I George Ellard, a. carpenter, of Weston, whilst passing a field near Slimeridge Farm ysest,erday eveming. noticed a man lying down, and on going near discovered that hds throat was badly cut and his clothes thoroughly drenched with water. ¡ The man was conscious and taken to Weston. PoLoe-sta,tion, where he gave the name of Join Williams, Maletfant-street, Cardiff. He is apparently about 27, height 5ft. Sin., freah i complexion, and respectably dressed.

I Rhondda Club Life. I POLICE AND TltE "DEMOCRATIC." I Considerable time Was occupied at Ystrad Police-court to-day in the hearing of a case in which it was sought to remove the National Democratic Club, Blaenclydach, from the register of clubs. Mr. W. P. Nicholas prose- cuted at the instance of Superintendent Cole, Pontypridd, and Mr. B. Francis Williams instructed by Mr. Phoenix (Messrs. Cousins, Botsford, and Phoenix, Cardiff), represented I the defendants. Mr. Francis (Messrs. Thomas and Francis, Cardiff) watched the proceedings for the National Democratic Defence League. Mr. Nicholas enumerated a number of offences which, it was alleged, had been com- mitted against the Licensing Act of 1902. He would, however, content himself witb taking the general charge that the club was not carried on in good faith within the meaning of the Act. The club minutes, which it would be necessary to put in. would, remarked Mr. Nicholas, disclose a shocking and startling condition of affairs, and he took the oppor- tunity of thanking Inspector Hoyle, Tony- pandy, for his assistance in inspecting them. It transpired that a large number of well- known brewery companies had been ap- proached to provide funds to assist the insti- tution, but had refused. One firm, however, gave two months' credit, and on this basis business was carried on. The ostensible object of the concern was to promote mental, imoral, iWnd physical advancement, which would tend to do away with the worst features of the drink traffic. As an inducement to this end six and a half barrels of beer were sold weekly, and "tick" allowed to the extent of 2s 6d. (Laughter.) I' The Stipendiary suggested, jicularly, that he understood that in the ordinary drink traffic it was NECESSARY TO PA ON THE NAIL I Continuing to read extracts from the minutes, Mr. Nicholas referred to the slack- ness of trade after the Ohirstmas indul- gences, and in March, 1903, it was found necessary to economise in the way of lite- rature, and amongst other periodicals dis- pensed -with were, "Papur rawl," "Tarian,' "Tit-Bits," Young Oxford," "Freethinjier," and others. When special general meetings were held, the business was of such an one- rous nature that it became necessary to have an hour's extension for refresh- ments. Another record which amused the et'betrhiaiwa erune.n artaatr arthart ar court was a fine imposed on a member of 18. for neglecting his "duties as a police- man." Fines were shown to have been inflicted, ranging from 6d. to 2e. 6d.. on members who had indulged too freely iu beer, and many had been cautioned against going to the cltrb whilst under the influence of drink. In one case a member was found outside the citeb premises drunk, and fined 6d. Although these acts proved drunkenness, the real source of the evil still continued. ORne mem'ber was severely dealt with for arguing after his beer had been stopped. Mr. Francis Williams: A kind of quarter sessions, your worship. (Laughter.) Mr. Nicholas detailed a large num/ber of charges brought before the committee of bad cases of drunkenness, in which the members had been expelled, and amongst others fined for too freely indulging, were officials of the club. It showed, added the advocate. AN APPALLING CONDITION OF DRUNKEN- NESS. It was all very well to blame public-houses for the stigma of "Black Glamorgan." What of the class of institutions with such records on its minute book? (Proceeding.)
— I AT THE SALUTATION INN. Newport Licensing Charge Fails I At Newport to-day Richard William Syner, landlord of the Salutation Inn, was sum- moned for permitting drunkenness on his licensed premises on Thursday, June n. Mr. L. H. Hornby appeared for the defence. Police-sergeant Colbourne stated that on visiting the house at 11.30 am. he found two men, who had been working all night at the dock. sitting down. They were under the influeaooe of drink, and a third, named George Thomas, was drunk. The barmaid said she had told the men to leave the house. Thomas satid the pint with some beer on the table in front of Mm was not his. When witness i took hold of him and helped him up he staggered, and had to be ta-ken to the police- station as a drunken, man. Mr. Syner was not present, but was stated to be at the docks. Police-constaible Galddcot corroborated. Mrs. Thomas, the wife of George Thomas (the man who was alleged to be drunk), eaid when she visited the house at ten o'clock her husband was not drunk. Dorothy Oousin8, a bairmalid at the Saluta- tion, called for the defence, saad she did not serve the man Thomas. A man came in and asked for a Scotch whisky amd a pint of beer for Thomas. Witness served the whisky, but refused to serve the beer for Thomas. The other man then gave Thomas hris whisky. William Webster, a younig man, admitted giving Thomas some whisky. He was then quite all rigibt. Richard William Syner, the licensee, said he was in the bar from 9.30 to 10.30 a.m. Thomas was then perfectly sober. The Bench, in the result, dismissed the case against the landlord. The man Thomas wae fined 10s. for being drunik on licensed premises

Once more of me it may be sand as of a worthier hero, "A-gmin he verges on his wild career."

If any pub- lisher is anxious to bring out a work OD. "Motor Trips Through Thunderstorms," per- haps he will kindly entrust me with the preparation of the same. But there have been gleams of sunshine. On Thursday ill. Geo-rge Seocoanhe, of Cardiff, kindly placed his splendid hill-climbing c'ar at my disposal, and Chauffeur Cunning-ham sped away with me over unpronounceable mountains and through vales that are spelt one way and called something totally different. It was glorious To Fly Up a Steep that suggested the side of a house, and the magnifioent trick aot? which the car per- formed on the ed?e? 0 f precipices and M<=: tain torrents will never fade from my memory. To the chauffeur, whose dexterity inspired j me with sufficient confidence to hum Welsh airs with nothing between myself and the drawing of my insurance money by someone else, I tender my grateful thanks. I had to go to places on the mountain heights that no human being had ever reached in a motor- car since the world was created, and he took me. Cn, ever on, we went until we came to a landslip, and half the side of a mountain toboganning an its own account, and houses gliding down into places which had not been purchased as sites for them. Then I got out and walked. We came back Through three Thunderstorms, t a hailstorm, and a waterspout to Caerphilly, with its famous oastle and its famous cheeses, and the kindly proprietor of the Picoa.dilly Inn dried me at a roaring fire and presented m« with a Caerphlly cheese to cheer me up; and then the champion hill- climbing car litera-Ily waltzed over Caerphilly Mountain with me and deposited self and cheese safely in the Angel's a,rms. We had done the Rhymney—which does not rhyme to chimney, being pronounced Rumney-Valley, three mountains, a landslip, two precipices, a mountain torrent, Piccadilly, Sevastopol, Llanibradach, Bargoed, amid the wildest weather of an Arctic June in four hours. uonsequence or Coincidence P I _I Mil". (icorgle U. Sims is the most intrepid of men. At Llanelly on Saturday our looal representative had thoughtfully provided a motor-oar for his use, but "Dagonet" said that the tramca-rs for which the town is famous were quite good enough for him, and in one of them he made the journey tb town. Later in the day the car broke down, amd traffic in Stepney-street wa43 blocked for hours. I

THE FINSBURY-PARK ROW. I Provoking a Breach of Peace." I At Highgate to-day Francis Spriggs (24), salesman, and Alfred Spriggs (22;, shop assistant, of Tottenham, were charged with using threatening and insulting words and behaving in a manner likely to provoke a breach of the peace in Finsbury Park yes- terday. An inspector stated he accompanied a procession to the park, and on arriving near the band stand, where the meeting was to take place, saw the defendants striking out right and left. There was great shouting amongst the crowd. Witness arrested Alfred. He was carrying a banner, bearing the words, "Protestant Alliance. Open-air band. Holy Bible for God. Our faith and country." The inspector added if the defendants had not been arrested there would have been serious riots. When charged, Alfred said, "We went to protest against the Bishop of London preaching Roman doctrine in the Church of England." Other evidence having been given, the defendants said they shouted, "Why don't you send your bishop to Rome?" The crowd I hustled them, and Alfred lost the banner, re-gained it, was dazed by a blow, and on coming to found himself in custody. They only defended themselves. At the request of the secretary of the Protestant Alliance, the case was adjourned.
MR. E. H. REES REPLIES. I To the Editor of the Evening Express." Sr.—With reference to Mr. J. D. Hughes's letter of Saturday under the heading of Football Mare's Nest," I am pleased to admit my unintentional mistake as to calling the team that viisited Aberdare a few seasons ago Mr. R. Owen's instead of Mr. F. Gordon's. Can Mr. Hughes inform me as to what parts of my statements are rash and un- warrantable ? He need not worry himself as to my lonediness True, I am only one trying to prove a case (for open professionalism), which, some people have not the moral courage to admit or deny, although they ha-ve been officials under whose supervision payments were made; but ask the man in the street" whom he tliinks is right, a.nd 80 per cent, who know anything about football workings will accept the views of the" man in his loneliness," who is not desperate, as alleged by Mr. Hughes. As to Mr. Gordon asking for kZ, I have not stated so, but members of the committee at that time state that Mr. Gordon received R25 and the players a first-class dinner after the match, and in the club balance-sheet, out of a eate totalling £ 80, the club funds received £ 20. To those persons who do not want to see nothing will be seen. Is "Forward," with his burst bubbles, one of them? Referring to Mr. J. Williams's contradic- tion, he may have the pleasure of denying same be&o.rcthe Welsh Rugby Football Union, as, according to a statement given me for entry in the cash-book by the chairman and assistant secretary, he was paid 10s. at Aber- t'ilery. I hope no player will think I am making. a mark against anyone in particular. I am flighting the cause of open professionalism mtead of the present manner of supposed second-class railway fare and alleged oab fares of players, which are accepted by committees without ve-rifying.-I am.

Martin (president) was in the chair. Mr. William proposed a resolution strongly approving of the rejection of the Irish Councils Bill, and welcoming heartily the manifesto just issued by Mr. John Red- mond, in whom they bad implicit confidence The paltry County Councils Bill, he said, would hot have satisfied anybody. Mr. P. O'Brien seconded the resolution, which was carried. In an address on Ireland's Future," Mr. John Valentine (Bristol), honorary organiser, sa,id it was clear that, whatever a-dddtione or alterations were made, the County Coun- cils Bill would not be accepted as the smallest instalment of Home Rule.

Obsessed by Bicycles. STIFF SENTENCES FOR CARDIFF MAN There was an array of bicycles and parts of bicycles brought into Llandaff Police- court to-day in connection, with charges of theft. One of these oharges had reference to the recent raid made by the city police on a house at Ely-road, Llandaff, when some fifteen bicycles and parts of bicycles were found, and a man named Gordon Lennox, otherwise Frank Faoer, agen, living the, was arrested. He was now brought up in the custody of two warders from Cardiff Prison, and charged With having on April 30 stolen a. bicycle, of the value of JE9 9s., from outside the Cow and Snuffers Inn, the .property of Charles Ha-rding, Monacll-by Farm, Gabalfa. He was further charged with having, on May 14. I stolen a. bicycle, of the value of £ 7s. 7s., | from the Black Lion Hotel, Llandaff, the property of James Smith, plasterer, 166, Eldon-street, Cardiff, and further, with hav- ing on May 5 stolen a. bicycle from Wenvoe Churchyard, the prowrty of Ellen Thomas, a servant at Wenvoe Castle. Charles Harding, James Smith, and Mrs. Thomas identified their property. Deteot-ive-serg-eant Kellett, of the Cardiff City Police Force, stated that at 9.45 p.m. om May 23, in consequence of inquiries he had made, he went to 31, Ely-road, Llandaff, which was then occupied by the prisoner. In a back room on the second floor he found a bicycle frame, two wheels, saddle, tool bag, 1"mp, and cycle cape produced, which were identified by Charles Harding. He also found in the same room the bicycle and cape produced identified by the witness Smith, amd a pair of bicycle wheels identified by Mrs. Thomas, and in the front room downstairs he found the bicycle frame, also identified by Mrs. Thomas. He handed them all over to Inspector Nott. Inspector Nott, Llandaff, stated that he was present when the whole of the bdcy<l<es were found. The prisoner made no answer to the charge. Mr. Sidney Jenkins asked no questions of either of the witnesses. Prisoner now Pleaded Guilty to All the Charges, I and Mr. Sidney Jenkins addressed the bench, stating that the more one looked into this case the more bewildered did one become and the more inexplicable did the prisoner s conduct appear. For seven yro.r3 up till quite recently the prisoner had held an excellent record, and had been taken into the employ- ment of one of the leading sewing machine manufacturers of the country. He was made manager of an important branch of theirs at Westminster, but, feeling that the work was too much for him, he applied for a transfer to Cardiff, and was transferred as a salesman. During his e<mplomenty at London and Cardiff considerable sums of money were passing througrh his hands, and there had not been a single instance of his having forsaken the pa.ths of duty. Although the prisoner was in receipt of a salary of from L150 to L200 a year and was in com- fortaible circumstances, yet he said, "I cannot understand why I stole any bicycle. For the last three months I have been bicycle mad. Whenever I saw a bicycle I felt I was bound to take it, and I did take it." One could not help regarding this as a tem- porary obsession of intellect, and he asked the bench to take these facts into considera- tion, and also that he had a wife and family depending on him. Colonel Woods paid a compliment to the manner in which Mr. Jenkins had so ably pleaded for the prisoner, and said it was a painful case, and the bench had to deal with it in a serious manner. In the first, case the prisoner would receive six months' imprison- ment, in the second case three montlis-to run after the expiration of the first sentence —and in the third oase a further three months' imprisonment—to run concurrently with the first sentence.
SWANSEA JUSTICES' CLERK Completes Fifty Years' Service I Swansea solicitors foregathered in large I numbers at Swansea Police-court to-day for an interesting function. It was to offer I congratulations to Mr. Jenkin Jonee (magis- trates' -clerk) on the completion of 50 years' service. Mr. R. T. Leyshon, on behalf of the solicitors, and Mr. Howell Watkins, chair- man of the bench, and other magistrates spoke in high terms of Mr. Jones. who suitably responded.
SEQUEL TO A MERTHYR CASE Mr. D. W. Tones, solicitor, mentioned at Merthyr to-day the case of John Lloyd, oil vendor, and the Merthyr Market trustees. Lloyd was summoned under the Markets Act for hawking oil without a licence, the case was dismissed, and went to the Court of Appeal. ,Mr. Jones said that Messrs. Frank James and Sons, applicant's solicitor, had written, stating that they did not intend proceeding a;ny further. In the Divisional Court he was told that he would have to apply for the costs, and he now applied to the stipendiary for them. On the first sum- mons he was granted ZCIO 10s. costs. Mr. Fulliblank, for Messrs James, opposed it on the ground that this application was premature, as Mr. Jones must first go to the Higher Oourt. The Stipendiary concurred.

I Death Presumed in Probate Court In the Probate Court to-day (before Mr. Justice Backnill) an application was made for leave to presume the death of Mr. Roland Samuel Thurber, a master mariner, who had lived in Severn-road, Cardiff. Mr. Gwyn Morris, counsel making tibe application, said that MT. Thurber sailed as second officer on the steamship Opkunda on the night of the 16th of February last from Cardiff Dooks. About half an hour after midnight the Orianda came into oaUisdon with the Heliopolis at Nash Point.

The Orianda became a total loss shortly after the collision, and only five out of the crew of nineteen were rescued William Robert Aitken, Henry Be van, two Greeks, and John Sparkes were the sole sur- vivors. Counsel asked, on behalf of the widow, Emma Maria Thurbert, that leave should be given to presume death on or since the 17th of February.

He was wheeling it and preparing to mount, when witness went np to him and took the bicycle hom him. He asked the prisoner wha.t he was doing with the bicycle and he replied, "I would have taken it away if you. had notcome out." Prisoner was not drunk. When charged bp Police-constable WikOX'¡ Birobgrove, who apprehnde dhim, prisoner replied, "U you had not eome out in time to catch me, I should have beengone.

He weut to Whitchurch on Sunday evening, and after- wards, with his brother, went into the Three Horee Shoes, where he had two drinks. On coming out he said to his brother, "Watch me have some sport on this bicycle.. With that, he took hold of it, and wae going to try and jump on it when the prosecutor came up and said that was his bicycle. He replied, "Lt's only sport."

Hit by Cricket Ball. I UNLUCKY SWANSEA PLAYER DIES I Harvey Thomas, the member of the Swan- see Cricket Club third eleven, who was struck on the head by a ball on the Swansea. Cricket Field last Thursday, died at his home, Waterloo-place, Brynmill, Swaneea, last night. The occurrence is almost, if not quite, un- precedented on the Swansea Cricket Ground, and has, therefore, produced a general feel- ing of gloom. As a-lready stated, he had been extremely unlucky on the field, as it was scarcely a fortnight earlier he was struck on the head whilst playing: cricket at Ammanford, and a couple of stitches were put in the wound. On Thursday he waa standingi near to Trew, who was bowling to Jack Bancroft. Bancroft hit a ball, which struck Thomas on his head. It was a new ball, and Bancroft, in hitting out, shouted to the "field" to "keep clear." The ball struck Thomas behind the left ear, and he dropped to the ground as if shot. His injury, however, was not thought serious at the time- He was carried home, but on Sunday unoonsciousnees supervened; it was clear that there was serious trouble, a.nd he passed away later in the evening. Thomas was a contractor in business, about 30 years of age. He leaves a widow and three children.
