BRISTOL TBFTBEIT. MRS. PARSONS' STORY BROWN INQUEST RESUMED Oil the evening of Saturday, February 22, at a hctiee in Stoney-hill, Park-row, Bristol, Francis Arthur Brown, aged 21, is alleged to have shot Mary Ann Parsons, aged 24, of Cardiff, and then to have shot himself. Upon two occasions the coroner (Mr. J. G. Doggett) sa/t, to hear the evidence as to what occurred, but the inquest has had to be adjourned in consequence of the condition of Mrs. Parsons, who alone knew the whole 6tory. Deceased was the eon of the proprietor of MRS. PARSOS. the Drawbridge Hotel, and the statement has been made that years ago Mrs. Parsons, who was a tailoress, kept company witb hiru. They wore parted, however, and ITZ3 Pa rsoJis, whose maiden name was lHa I married a Cardiff man. At the opening of the inquest evidence of identification alone was heard, and on the 10th of March, to which date it was ad- journed, another postponement had to take place, Mrs. Parsons being still unable to undergo the ordeal of the witness-box. She has since been recuperating atl a nursing home. This afternoon the final sta-.e of the inquest was reached, and Mrs. Parsons appeared at the coroner's court, attended by two nurses. She was attired in black, and wore a heavy veil, beneath which, however, the pa-llor of her face could readily be seen. There was a large crowd outside the court, where several police were stationed, a demonstration of some sort having been anticipated. Only those connected with the case or rela- tives of those connected with it were admitted to the court. MRS. PI\RSONS' STORY 7,fr. Mary Ann Parsoins said her husband was John Philip Parsons. They lived a.t 10, U'trielly-street, jSplott, Cardiff, her husband being a commission agent. The Coroner: You were acquainted with the deceased, Arthur Francis Brown?—Yes; I knew him several years ago, when I was living in IJristol, but I had not seen him recently. You formed a friendshi.p with him?—Yes, some years ago, and we walked out together for about a year. Continuing, Mrs. Parsons said sli4) then left Bristol, and some time afterwards: was mar- ried.

The Diamond Maker BANK REFUSES TO GIVE UP SEALED ENVELOPE A most unusual and interesting application "vras made on Monday to Sir Albert de Rutzen at Bow-street Police-court for transmission to Paris in the matter of the prosecution of M. lyemoine, who is still in prison there, charged with defrauding Sir Julius Wernher of £ 54,000, in respect of the process for the manufacture of diamonds. It will be recollected that when the case came before the Imblio some few months since, it was alleged that the secret process for the manufacture of the diamonds was contained in a sealed envelope, which was placed in the custody of Union of London and Smiths Bank (Limited). The application on Monday was made Under the Extradition Amendment Act, to compel the bevnk to hand over the sealed envelope for the purpose of the proceedings in Paris The bank, represented by Mr. Horace Avory, K.C., instructed by the solicitors of the bank, declined to hand over the sealed packet. M. Lemoine was represented by Mr. Travers Humphreys, instructed by Jfessre. Davidson and Morris. The result of the a.jxplication was that Sir Albert de Rutzen stated that he should report to the proper quarters the refusal of the bank to part wit, the sealed packet, which he decided to be the proper oouree to adopt. The case will, therefore, before long Probably come before some of the courts in another sha-pe. v
POLLING AT PECKHAM Polling opened at Pecfcham this morning in flue, bright weather. A considerable number of vehicles are being brought into use, many voters residing some distance from the polling stations, of which there are four. A fair pro- portion of City men polled oil their way to their offices. and some of the gas-workers and other artisans took advantage of the break- fast interval to record their votes. The Liberals claim that the first hour's polling was about equal for the two oandidatee. Telegraphing about one o'clock a press cor- respondent at Peckhain, w'ho had been fur- nished with the figures, states that up to noon one-fifth of the electorate had recorded t.heir votes. Many voters who never before had taken part in an election on this occa- sion went to the poll. The Unionists have 300 vehicles in the constituency. The utmost excitement prevails, and ordinary business 'has come almost to a standstill.
BARRY RAILWAY DISPUTE The visit of Mr. Bell to Barry on Monday morning, as the result of pressing represen- tations which had been made to him during the past week, was somewhat unexpected. He at once consulted with the men's repre- sentatives, and ascertained during the morn- ing that the position was so strained that a little would have induced the men to go out on strike. This conference with the men's representatives lasted all the morning. The interview between Mr. Bell and the general manager opened at two o'clock, and continued till six o'clock, when Mr. Bell at once left for London to attend to his Parlia- 1Dentary duties the same night. During the interview a number of points of alleged violation of the recent agreement were discussed. Mr. Bell declined to make any communication to the press, but our Barry reporter was afterwards informed that on the whole the result of the interview was of a satisfactory character.

The house was a vacant one, amd defendants were seen to climb the wall into the back and to take away a rule and scissors. The lock on the kitchen door TO found broken. The Bench said the case was a. v«ry painful one, and adjourned it for a week before "m2itic to a decision.
DUKE OF DEVONSHIRE I Dies Suddenly at Cannes I GREAT STATESMAN'S CAREER The Duke of Devonshire died at ten o'clock this morning. Death was due to heart failure. The duke was staying at Cannes at the time of his death. Yesterday a telegram waa received in London by Mr. Victor Cavendish titating that the duke was rather ill. A3 a result of this communication, Mr. Victor Cavendish and Lady Evelyn Cavendish, his wife, a-cccm- panied by Lord Charles Montagu, started laast night by the Cint mental train for Cannes, so that the death of his grace occurred before the party could arrive. The duke after his recent severe illness left London for Egypt, where he spent the winter with the duchess. iNews received from time to time led to the belief that the distinguished nobleman was slowly recovering his usual health. The latest intelligence known publicly was that he had left Cairo for Cannes, whence the sad news WfuS received to-day that he had passed away this morning from heart failure. The duchess, for whom much sympathy will be felt, .was with his grace at the time of his death. The successor to the title and the great Devonshire estates is the Right Hon Victor Cavendish, his nephew, the Unionist mem- ber for West Derbyshire, who was returned at the last general election by a majority of 555, the figures being- Cavendish (Unionist) 5,283 Hinmers (Liberal) 4,728 Mr. Cavendish s clevat-ion to the peerage thus causes another bye-election. His lordship was born on the 23rd of July, 1833, and was, therefore, 75 years of age. As Lord Hartington he sat in the House of Commons for North Lancashire from 1857 to 1863, and on his defeat in the latter year became M.P. for New Radnor in 1869. He retained the seat for Radnorshire until 1880, when he was elected for NorUi-east Lancashire, and in 13S5 for the Ro.ssenda.le Division of that county, which seat he retained until 1391, when he succeeded his father as Duke of Devonshire. Ilis grace, who has had coinpairatively little to do with politics in later years, held various offices under Liberal Adminis- trations, but in 1886 lie, in conjunction with Mr. Chamberlain, led the eeceders from the Liberal party on the introduction by Mr. Gladstone of the Home Rule Bill. In 1895 he acc-epted.offic-c under Lord Salisbury as Lord President of the Council, holding the posi- tion until 1903, when he retired from Mr. Balfour's Cabinet on the question of Tariff Reform. Friend of the King I The friendship which existed between hiB Majesty King Edward and the Duke of Devon- shire was of the closest character, and con- tinued to the last. It will be remembered that when the duke was first seized with illness he was attending the Ascot Meeting, and was removed to Windsor Castle, where he remained until he was well enough to be removed to Devonshire House. As a statesman the duke for nuany years litood in the very first rank, his opinions being respected almost equally by friends and opponents, and as a sportsman no one in the history of the Turf was more honoured than the deceased duke, whose loss will be deeply regretted by all racegoers. In the early days of his Turf career, when Lord Hartington, he raced for a few years under the name of Mr. J. C. Stuart. In 1877 he carried off the One Thousand Guineas with Belphoebe, while in 1902 his grace's colours won the Eclipse Stakes, but probably the best horse he ever owned during his long association with the Turf was Iterioui, which in 1890 won the Royal Hunt Cup and the following year the Ascot Gold" Cup. The duke was delighted with, these two vic- tories, as the son of Barealdine was bred by himself. His grace owned some other highly- bred horses, but was never successful in carrying: off either of the plums of the race- course—th e Two Thousand Guineas, the Derby, the Oaks, or the St. Legcr. He was elected a member of the Jockey Club in 1883. His horses won fourteen races of dose upon £ 7,000 in value. Amongst the successes rained last year Acclaim, wno carried on the Newmarket Stakes, was top scorer, whilst Fugleman and Eocketter also helped to fill the exchequer. To give a list of all his Grace's horses in tiaining and to mention the whole of the- tories gained in the straw would fill a page, and a number of nominations will become void in consequence of his death. The duke married in 1892 Louise, the Duchess of Manchester. A further telegram states that,' according to later information received at Devonshire House, his grace passed away at the Hotel Continental at Cannes at 3.30 this morning. It is understood that arrangements are being made to bring the body to England for inter- ment. The blinds are drawn at Devonshire House, and a number of people have already called to express their sympathy. The Duke of Devonshire was one of the most interesting figures in contemporary politics. He had had a long and varied career, and on more than one ocoasion nar- rowly escaped being Prime Minister. He had been Secretary for War, Postmaster- General, Secretary for India, and Chief See- retary for Ireland, which proves that, in spite of his reputation for indolence, he was a very hard worker, and a man of unusual abilities. He was generally credited with a retiring and absent-minded disposition, and the story goes that once he stopped to admire a picture at a certain exhibition without in the least remembering that it had been sent from one of his own galleries. His grace was the owner of vast estates, the management of which would tax the business capacities of any ordinary man, and with all his varied interests he found time to become a noted sportsman add a first-class shot. He was one of King Edward's best friends, and on many occa- sions had been his Majesty's host at Chats- worth. STORIES OF THE DUKE The laotB duke's reputation for silence is well exemplified by the following incident: MaJiy years ago, a gentleman who had just been knighted w., to stay not far from the Chatewortli domains. lie had a fine idea, of himself, and his newly acquired title did not tend to diminish his pride. One da,y he chanced upon two young men quietly fishing, and in a patronising manner told them that if they liked to leuve two fish at a certain hotel far Sir So-and-So, they would be rewarded with 5e. Shortly afterwards the anglers turned up at the hotel wit-h the fish, and the deferential manner in which one of them was treated axousd the curiosity of the doughty knight. His surprise may be imagined when he later discovered that one of the quiet young fishermen wae none other than the ol Hartington, later his Grace the Duke of Devonshire! A Question of Work I Some time ago the duke was informed that there was not enough work on one of his estates to justify the employment of so many men, and his permission was asked to dismiss a few of the hands. His grace assented, and some time afterwards met one of his late employes. "Well, Pat," said the duke, "I am sorry you had to go, but at present there is not enough work to keep you all engaged." Pat thought for a moment, and then replied "Sure if it's only a question of work, you needn't send me uway at all, for very little of it will keep me going." The duke laughed and went his way, but the witty remark had gone home, and a day or two later Pat was found another job. -1 Wasn't it Dull P" It has been irreverently said that the late Duke was born tired." Certainly in the gilded chamber he looked unusually weary; and frequently contrived to find time for forty winks." It was no unusual sight to see Lord Salisbury and his faithful hench- man peacefully slumbering side by side, the former sitting bodd upright with his hands lying helpless on his knees, the Duke doubled up in two. Of his grace the story is told of his once confessing that he had yawned in the midst of one of his own speeches, and excusing him- self by saying, Well, wasn't it very dull?" His grace reduced the balancing of an immaculate silk hat on a ducal nose to a fine art, and rivalled Mir. Labouohere as an inveterate cigarette smoker. Rhymes with Partington I During the great Oivil War the Late duke visited America, and his enthusi-aeme were aU on behalf of the South, and he could never understand why they collapsed in the fight. The story of his meeting with Abraham Lin- ooln is a good one. Lincoln's manner at the reception was a trifle disconcerting. First of all, the naane of the marquees seemed to elude him, consequently he asked, "What naime did you say?" On hea-ring the name clearly pro- nounced, his innate sense of humour was aroused r\,nd a smilec" satLsfeuction spread over his large features as he ventured upon such I an absurd remark as this, "Why, Hartington rhymes with Mxe. Partinetosu"
I Druce Disclosures MORE CURIOUS EVIDENCE I" I Witness Who Had No Relations I CHARGE OF PERJURY RESUMED Mrs. Margaret Jane Louise Hamilton (77), who is charged with committing perjury in the Druce proceedings, surrendered to her bail to-day at Bow-street Police-court (before. Sir Albert de Rutzen). Sir Charles Mathews prosecuted for the Treasury, and Mr. Law- rence Hales and Mr. Jellicoe defended Mrs. Hamilton. At the outlet, Sir Charles Mathews said hoe: v.-isned in the interest of the prisoner to make the following statement at the earliest po> £ eible moment, so as to give ample warning. "We have," he eaid, "discovered since we were here last evidence of a very consider- able payment to Mrs. Hamilton in the month of December, 1906, when apparently a oheque for £600 was drawn by Mr. G. Hollamby Druee in favour of Mr. Coburn, and of that L600 we have clearly traced £ 400 into the banking a coo ant of Mrs. Hamilton, and the mat.ter; becomes none the less important when I turn to the sworn evidence of Mrs. Hamilton, wher e I find this:- I have not been promised anything for giving evidence in this cafCe. I was a.lkod by Mr. Druce if I v,ou!d give evidence, but I nothing wari &a.id about a reward. Mr. Half*): At that time. Sir Charles Mathews: This is what your client swore, and UJIY comment should be reserved until the proper time. (Readin): I have no purpose to serve in giving evidence. My motive in giving evidence is an honest one. Sir Charles went on to say t'hat when MXB. 1 Hamilton was arrested j Severai Bank Notes Were Found j in her posr^ssion. which could be traced as the proceeds of that £ 6C(j. j The first witness was Mr. E. H. Bailey, solicitor to tne Duke of Portland. Answering Mr. Jellicoe, he said his father and grandfather had acted -as solicitors to the fourth and fifth Dukes of Portland. He declared that the photo handed to him by Mr. Jeiliooe not that of the fiftn drike i in disguise or otherwise. He added tha.t he first heard of the name of Druce in coivnec- tion with I' of Portland in 1896, when Mrs. Hamwub Maria Druce called upon him. He did not consequence of what he beard conimM'')]!?'? with Mr. Herbert Druee, but in 1898 he did communicate with' MeBTs. Fresh- fields, tne solicitors for Mr. Herbert Druce. Witness could not speak as to certain COlTe- spondence without the letter books. Mr. Jeiliooe asked that witness might be re-called, when the correspondence could be produced. Sir Charles Mathews said he -honld cer- tain I v not recall the witness. The cro&e- examination was wholly irrelevant to the charge of perjury. The Magistrate: I have not intervened because Mr. Jellicoo may have some view of his own or his instructions. Mr. Jeiliooe suggested that in the Druce proceedings Mr. George Hollamby Druce had to fight not only Mr. Herbert Druce. but Lord Howard de Walden and the Duke of Portland. The Magistrate: What has this to do as to whether defendant told the truth or not? Mr. Jellicoe: It goes to the identity of someone. Sir Charles Mathews: Of whom? Mr. Jellicoe: You will find out as this case proceeds. Re-examined, the witness said Mrs. Hannah Maria Druce first attacked Viscount Port- ma.n, then the Duke of Somerset, next Lord Fit a'william, and then the Duke of Portland. Mr. JeHicoe: Where is this poor lady now? I Sir Charles Mathews: She is In a Lunatic Asylum Witness added that Mrs. Druce told him that the firtli* duke was in an asylum. at Maidenliead. Mr. Jelliooe: Does the witness suggest she ought to have been there too? Sir Charles Mathews: It would have involved far lees trouble bad she been, and this is the origin of the great Druce-Portland ca&e. Mr. Herbert Druce was then xe-calied for! ■^ross-examination, and Mr. Thaekrah, who identified the body of T. C. Druce at Highgate Cemetery, was asked to leave the court. The witness said he was born in 1846. His mother told him that he had no other evidence. The Baker-street Bazaar was started in 1835 and witness got control of it in 1868. Its capital value was then £ 43,000. The books had all been destroyed. He could not say whose money started it. He could not tell the date of his mother's birth or marriage. Mr. Jollicoe: Have you been able to tra-fce the date of the birth of the gentleman you I refer to as father?—No. I suppose you had a grandfather ?—I never heard of him. I suppose you had a grandmother?—I never heard of her. Do you know who your father's father was? -I don't. It might have been the Duike of Portlahnd so fa-r as you know? Who was youir father's mother?—I can't tell yon that. Who was your mother's father?—I never heard that. Who was your mother's mother?—I don't know. Had you any uncles on yotur mother's side? —Never heard of them. Wibere were you living with the people you describe as your parents when your father died ?—Hendon. Will you swear that the business was started before 1846?—I should say it was. Will you swear?—I won't swear. How your father acquired the means to start it or who found the money to start it is a blank -so far as you are concerned?—Yes. Did you mother ever speak to you of her ma r ria-ge ?—No. Did the gentleman you call father ever speak to you about his marriage?—No; he never spoke to me on the subject. You never had relations?—No. Does that not seem rather curious to your mind?—No. Do you mean to tell us that you have never taken, the trouble to ascertain Who Started Ihe Business I as a fact?—I believe it was my father. If this genitleman was your father —— Witness (hastily): I have no doubt about that. Mr. Jellicoe: You possibly may have no doubt. Witness added that he never heard the Duke of Portland's name mentioned at the Bazaar. He had no doubt that the photo produced was that of his father. Do you know the name your mother went by when you were bora?—No. You don't?—I su-ppoee it was Mrs. Druce. Did she pass as Mrs. Druce?—I suppose eo. Did she ever tell you that?—No Counsel: I suppose that the certificate of the marriage gives the n-ame of Annie May as your mother's maiden nam-el-I believe it does. Now tell me the date of the marriage ?—I cannot tell you. His name may have been Brown. Jones, or Robinson, for all you know to the oontrary? —I did not think &o. Sir Charles Matihews hotly protested against this line of cross-examination, and asked the magistrate to allow it to proceed only under his sanction. Mr. Jellicoe asked witness whether he could assist the court to ascertain his mother's actual name. Witness said he could not. (Proceeding.)
'GASHED HIS THROAT I Cardiff Man Dies from Wounds I The man Eli Danger field, who was admitted roO the Cardiff Workhouse Infirmary on Sun- day night with two large wounds in his throat, said to have been pelf-inflicted with a knife, succumbed to his injuries late last uight. Dangerfleld, who resided with hie family at Zl. Sandon-street, Cardiff, had been suffering from asthma. His wife is stated to have tried to take the knife away from him, but was unable to gain possession of it until after he had gaehed his throat.
VICAR & LABOUR DISPUTE I The Vicar of Owmavon had the Te Deum sung at the end of the service at the Parish Ohurob as an act of thanksgiving for the settlement of the dispute at the tin-plate works lIoud the consequent arrangement for an immediate re-start. He said he was very pleased to be able to congratulate the work- men on the quiet and gentlemanly way in which they bad conducted themselves.
HOTEL TRAGEDY. RUSSIAN AND CELLARMAN I I BARRY MAN'S DEATH Mr. Justice A. T. Lawrence, at the Glamor- gan Assizes at Cardiff this morning, heard the charge agamst Michael Yerreff (29). a Russian fireman, of murdering Henry Robert Mitchell, a cellarman, at Barry, on the 24th of February. Mr. Ellis Griffiths. M.P.. and Mr. Clive Lawrence (instructed by Mr. F. P. J. Jones-Lloyd, Parry) prosecuted, and Mr. J. A. Lovat-Fraser (instructed by Mr. T. P. Prichard, Cardiff) defended. The prisoner, in a clear voice, pleaded "Not guilty" to the charge, adding, "I can't remember anything about it." ¡ At the request of Mr. Lovat-Fraser all the witnesses in the case, with the exception of the doctors, were ordered out of court. Mr. Ellis Griffiths having detailed the cir- cumstances at> alleged by the prosecution, evidence was called. Margaret Mead, ba.rioviid at the Castle Hotel, stated that the prisoner came in about 9.50, and, as he had boea driving, albe refused to serve him.

There was 110 undue violence used in removing the prisoner. As. far <16 ycu knew, the only reason for Yerreff Utiug turned out was tha.t he had dr?ux some other gent.?man'6 beer. Prisoner wa& ?trug'?tiu? very much when be was being turned out, and was very indignant. Did Mr. farmer strike bim?—No, not &t all. Were any blows struck in turning him out? —I did not see any. Witness added that Mr. Farmer was in ill- health at the time, and had been for some months. Nellie Helliwell, barmaid, corroborated, (Stating that she saw no blows istruek. The prisoner looked wild, and had a very paie complexion, but she thought he was sober enough to know what he was doing. Mr. William Farmer, landlord of the Castle Hotel, stated that when he noti-ced the man was intoxicated he shook his head to the barmaids, indicating that they were not to serve him. No blows were struck in turn- ing the ma.n out. About five minutes a<fter Yerreff had been turned out he saw Mit-cihell dead m tne oar. Cross-examined: Prisoner was stupidly drunk, and in such a condition that he might have taken up another man's beer in mistake. Thomas Jenkins, dock labourer, 50. Lower Pike-street, Barry, who helped to put the pri- soner out as far as the outuide door, st.ated that r.o blows were struck and no unnecessary violence was used. Prisoner was rather drunk. Cro-'S-examined: The prisoner looked wild, but it was the I Wildness of Bad Temper I more than intoxication. Lily Cannock, a single woman, stated that whilst she was opposite the hotel with another girl called Alice Holmes on the ibight in ques- tion, she saw the deceased, who was in his shirt sleeves, and the prisoner standing outside the door. The deceased told the prisoner to Go home to your diggings, to which he replied, "What for did you strike me?" She then saw the prisoner raise his right hand and strike a downward blow at the deceased's breast. She could not see if the prisoner had anything in his hand, but the deceased staggered back after the blow. Mitchell afterwards fell, and she helped to carry deceased into the hotel. Similar evidence was given by Alice Holmes, 24, Station-street, Barry, who stated that after Miteihell fell the prisoner turned up Morel-street, and she saw nothing more of hi.m. Cross-examined: The prisoner was con- tinuously saying to the deceased, "What for you strike me?" and patting one hand with t.he other. Alfred Williams, telephone operator, and Reginald Sharp, Kingsland-crescent, Barry, stated that they saw the deceased push the prisoner before the latter struck him A Downward Blow After tho blow was struck they heard the deceased say to the prisoner, "Don't let me catch you here again," and later they saw Mitchell fall on the steps face downwards and carried into the hotel. Dr. Sixsmith stated that when he was called to the hotel Mitchell was dead. He had a clean cut wouind about three-eighths of an inch long on the chest penetrating to the heart. The covering of the heart was full of blood. The knife produced fitted the wound exactly. Gross-examined: He found it difficult to believe that after receiving snoh a wound the deceased con Id ha.ve walked several yards or spoken. Mr. Ellis Griffiths Have you given instruc- tions for your cross-examination, Mr. Lovat-Fraser: Surely, that is most improper. My learned friend has no right to crose-exaa-qine his own witness. The Judge: Perhaps, he had befbte-r answer, as his answer might show that there was no foundation. Dr. Sixsmith said he had not soon the solicitors, amd bad only seen Mr. Lo.va.t- Fraser once, who said that he was in the cawe. The Judge: Then your answer is "No"? Dr. fiixsmith: Yee. Dr. Brewer, Barry, gave evidence as to the nature of the wound, and stated that the knife produced could have caused the wound, but he would have expected rather a double- edged weapon. After a man received such a wound as described he could speak and walk until the heart stopped, and he was a.fra.id he did not agree with Dr. Sixsmith on that point. lie thought the heart would etop in about a minute after the wound was inflicted. Police-constable David Lewis, Barry, stated that in the early morning of the 25th be found the knife (produced) near the Castle Hotel. When shown prisoner, he identified it as his. Police-constable Charles Lewis said, when the prisoner was charged, he replied, "I was ill for fourteen days, and did not know any- thing about it." Witness asked if he knew that he had killed a man, and prisoner replied, "Oh, my God!" The Defence I Mr. lyovat eraser said he was going to ask t.he jury to say that the prisoner at the time was not of sound mind. Axel Askeroth, a seaman, who had sailed with prisoner to Rosario and back, stated that Yereff behaved for a time in a peculiar manner. He laughed and sang and clapped bis hands, and at Bosario he werijt into hospital. Bmile Rappinoh, boarding-house keeper, 37, Travexs-street, Ba-rry Dock, stated that he had known the prisoner for several year- When he returned from Rosario the prisoner sa.id he was going to London to see a doctor; hj was so weak in the head. Then he said, "Look at these beggars on the fo'castle head; they are going to kill me." When he came downstairs next morninf Yerreff said he could not sleep. That evening several men came into the house, and Yerreff said he v. a-s too weak in the head to stand the noise. After Yerreff went upstairs that night wit- ness found him walking about the room, and asked why he did not go to sleep. Yerreff pointed to a crack in the door, and said, "Look at the beggars watching me there. They are going to kill be." Witness replied that there was nobody there. On the day of the murder Yereff came home drunk and fell on the couch, and was there when the police came. Mrs. Rapprich stated that on the morning ot the 24th of February, vhen Yerreff came down to breakfast, he stated that he had bad a bad dream, that he had shot hie mother, and had washed his hands in her blood. Dr. Sixsinith stated that he had heard no evidence which could lead him to the con- elusion that the prisoner was insane. Mr. Lovat-Fraseir said he did not intend to persevere with the defence of insanity, and stated they were met with this initial diffi- culty as to ghether the dead man, after receiving such a wound as that described, could walk and talk as he was said to have done. They had a difference of opinion amongst the doctors on that point. Assum- ing, however, that they did oome to the oon- clusion, the prisoner inflicted the wound of which Mitchell 5iod, lie asked them, upon the facts of the case, to find that the prisoner was guilty of manslaughter only. From what they had heard, whether they thought the prisoner was of sound mind. he thought they would have no hesitation in saying that there was something wrong with his head. Taere was no evidence here of malice afore- thought or intent, for the whole thing was done in an instant, and that, be contended, amounted only to manslaughter. Dr. Cook, medical officer of Cardiff Prison, was interposed at this stage by Mr. Ellis Griffith, and stated, as the result of his observations he found that the prisoner was not suffering trom delusions, that he was quite rational, and that there was no sign of la-ck of mental balance. judge Sums Up Mr. Ellis Griffiths having briefly addressed the jury, His Lordahip summed up, and said the evidence was all one way a.s to the manner by which the deceased met his death. His lordship, having reviewed the evidence, directed the attention, of the jury to the difference between aiuud r a.nd manslaughter, and fiaid temper was no excuse for stabbing a, man, and the fact that the prisoner was intoxicated was no excuse unless he was in such a state that big mind was no longer a.ctive. The jury retired to consider their verdict at three o'clock.
SIR JAMES LAING AND SONS I A petition for the compulsory winding up of Sir Ja.mes Laing and Sons (Limited) came before Mr. Justice Neville in London to-day. The petitionerc,, -M-essrs. Barclay and Co., bankers, are creditors for over £ 400,000, and they asked tha e voluntary winding-up should be superseded by a compulsory liqui- dation on the ground that certain of the company's affairs required looking into. The petitioners, amongst other things, it was stated, desired an explanation of how the company, which in 1906 earned sufficient to pay the dividend of 50 per cent. on its paid- up capital, was insolvent in the early part of 1908. Mr. Duke, K.C., for the petitioners, eaid the directors had by transaction with other companies, become shareholders of those companies, and the shares appeared in the balance sheet as an asset, while at the same time they were responsible for the Bills given by those companies. Petitioners desired Ill. formation on those transactions proceeding. -ø>
FROM ALL QUARTERS The condition of Sir John Day, the ex- judge, is unchanged, and remains very serious. G. A. Olley, the cyclist, started at Coventry to-day in his attempt to beat tbe 1,OCO miles road record. Mr. Alfred Baldwin, la.t.e M.P. for West Wor- cestershire, who died in February, left estate valued at over £ 190,000. Sir Albert Srpicor, M.P., chairman of the Congregationa.1 Union Council, is indisposed, and will be unable to attend the meetings at Gloucester to-morrow. Prince Edward, of Wales, is so far recovered from his attack of German measles that he was able yesterday to take a walk. At Devisee to-day Harry Swayne Smith (35), soMcitor and ex-clerk of the pea<? for Devizœ, was committed for trial on charges of forgery and fraudulent conversion of trt money. Thie morning Mr. E. R. Mansfield, M.P., for SpaJding. was married at Humbesstone Cfcurrb, Leicester, to Miss Sarah E. Winter ton, youncer daughter of Alderman W. Winterton, former May<)r of Leicester. The remains of the Dowager Lady Tweed- mouth, mother of the. first Lord of the Admiralty, wcire interred this afternoon at KensaJ Green cemetery.

Plays and Players. MISS ZENA DARE AT CARDIFF New Theatre, Cardiff. The Gay Gordons," on its first appearance in Cardiff, had a great reception from a crowded house at the New Theatre on Monday evening, and it is evidently going to do big business during its week's slay here. Monday's house laughed from the beginning to the end of a piece that was always bright and telling and always budding with fresh developments. There is not a slow moment in the piece, but while the humour is always brisk and pointed, and whiJe the plot rtMis rapidly and smoothly, the feature which strikes one most forcibly about aM) play is its rich spectacular effects. Miss Zena Dare makes her second appear- ance in Cardiff, but her first in musical comedy, in which she has gained all her principal successes, and in "Peggy Quainton" she has a splendid part. She is always a charming figure on the stage, and without a big voice she sings very charmingly, and in a part which demands more acting than most in musical comedy, she plays with an un- affected, bright, and sympathetic manner. She was a huge success on Monday, and was re-called before the curtain several times at the close of the piece. Mr. Stanley Brett, who bears an undoubted likeness to Mr. Seymour Hicks, has the latter's part of "Angus Graeme," and plays it thoroughly well. He has a lot of dry humour, which always hits the point, and two excellent comic songs, "When my ship comes home" and "Do be careful." Mr. Murray King has the chief comic part as "Nervy Nat." a bibulous old showman, and does everything well. His "Nobody" song, in a quiet style, is quite one of the funniest things. Mist; Moua Salma also ought to be men kkmed for- her- excellent" singrng of the echo song and another attractive ballad with wthioh the piece almost opens. Theatre Royal, Cardiff When Woman Hates" is the attraction a.t the Theatre Royal. Cardiff, this week. The drama is well produced by Mr. F. Bulmer's company. Miss Rosalind Scott-Watson as "Dora Daintly," captivated Monday evening's audience. The Lyceum, Newport The lovers of grand opera ought to be devoutly grateful to Mr. Sidney Cooper far the great treat which he is presenting at the Lyceum this week. The Moody-Maninerk Company is now probably tbe strongest ot all opera, companies visiting provincial centres. The old favourites are in thia week's repertoire. On Monday night Car men" was produe-ed to a house which wa6 delighted. The gipsy title rode was taken with great ability by Miss Rosina Beynon. To-night (Tuesday) Daughter of the Regiment" will be produced, Miss Rceina Beynon taking the title role; on WednesdaM night, Tannhauser Thursday, Faust Friday, "Rigoletto"; Saturday matinee, Lohengrin"; and on Saturday night, Bohemian Girl." Cardiff Empire. Chic and dainty, refined and vivacioue- these are the dist-in,guishing characteristics of Miss Adrienne Augarde, the famous Ijondon actress, who appears this week at the Oardiff Empire in a charming sketch entitled. '"Dick's Sister, written by Mr. Norman M 'Kinnel. In Diok's Sister" Mies Augarde is assisted by Mr. Fred Penley. Mr. Barnes, of New York, is a clever Ameri- can artiste who can sing a good song and teU a good story. Particularly smart as a raconteur, he kept the audience abundantly amused on Monday night. The other items are.-Wood and Green, eocentric acrobatic comedians; Harry Lauder's selections on the chronomegaphone King's College Boys, pleasing vocalists; Sisters Finney, queens of natation; Jack Neil, quaint Scotch oome- dian; Fritz Korna-u, expert whietler; Venie Clements, comedienne; and Sydney Lee, comedian. Newport Empire I The Houfefboat." a brilliant knoek-abont sketch by the original Leopolds and a select company of pamtom insists, takes the merited pcisitio-n as top of the bill at Newport this week. Its mirth-provoking abilities were much appreciated by two large audiences on Monday night. Sinclair and Whiteford give a bright, breezy show as society entertainers. Another witty and amusing turn is that of Alice May due. Stoll's Panopticon I Stoll's Panopticon, Cardiff, continues to enjoy its remarkable popularity, judging by the large audience which assembled there on Monday evening. The programme includes, as usual, subjects that are interesting and instruetivo, with a wealth of humour. One of the best dramatic films shown by the American Bioscope Company is The Bad Shilling," a series which greatly affected fjome of the audience. The brewing of cider is depicted, and another beautiful series is that showing the handy man at work. The Alabama trio of instrumentalists and vocal- ists give a clever musical act. Rose Stuart also contributes an excellent vocal item, whilst that popular North Wales elocutionist, Bert Williams, recites a thrilling story, entitled, "The Galley Slave," with fine effect. Mr. Gwilym Naish also contributes a eong. The usual matinees will be held on Wed- nesday and Saturday at 2.30. The Palace, Cardiff I The most caustic critic could not fail to appreciate the dramatic sensation presented by Leonard Mortimer and his talented com- pany at the Palace Theatre, Westg ate -street, Cardiff, this week. It is an interesting story of New York society, entitled "Oaptain Cash." It is. admirably presented, with beau- tiful scenery. D'Arc's Waxworks, Cardiff. The Dahomey Amazonian Warriors continue I to attract crowds to their novel and sensa- tional performances at Madame D'Arc's Waxworks, St. Mary-street, Cardiff. The natives perform daily (in costume) from two till ten p.m., and they give a realistic exhi- bition of aboriginal life at home in peace and at war.

£500 Damages Claimed THE SWANSEA LIBEL CASE The Swansea Trade Union libel action Hopkin John v. Ivor Gwynne still occupied the a.ttention of Mr. Justice Bray and a special jury at the Glamorgan Assizes to. day. The plaintiff teeks to recover £ 5C0 damages for statements about him in refer- ence to a strike last year at the Itaveu Works, Swansea.. The plaintiff. John Hopkin John, who had j alrca-ay been in the box for three days, was farther cross-examined by Mr. Abel Tno;nas, K.O-, and Mr. Thomas proceeded to contrast the tone of some of the plain tiff'a letters to the pre^e with the articles by the defen- dant of which he complained. In one of these plaintiff queried whether the defen- dant w.ig "subject to a braiu-storm, born of prejudice, and burst by jealousy of my success." Plaintiff maintained that this was quite true. Mr. Thomas continued -,o iead-"Th,e Arti- sans t;:la intiff's Union) have no objection to a conciliation board made up of employers on itkie and different men's representa- tives 'l tbe other, What they will never -.4 is to join a board where the nuijoAs against them* would be Fevoll to or. critic fails to reaJise this, but the matter i-s well understood by the least intel- let.uiiii. inoribcr ü. of the Artisan". "Tsat r.re. c. vr.ficl inquired, "that defendant w-s r. than the least tate-lef-lrercl of the A?>t £ «ians" It might be taken in that way," plaintiff adm.i tt.e,d; "I wanted to make dear the fact that the least intellectual among the Artisans knew that point which affected their interests." Presently Yiv. B. Francis-Williams, K.C., remembering that it v. as the finh day of the case and looking at the clock, inquired whether they were not getting far away from the point. The Judge said he must be very careful how he interfered, or there might have to be a new trial. Mr. Francis-Williams: This is a case where I should vote for a time-limit. (Laugh- ter.) I should not like my friend to have a tied house, but I should like to have him tied up. (More laughter.) Plaintiff admitted that some of his letters were "strong," but they were also true, while defendant's articles were strong and mostly false. Plain-tiff did not accept the explanation of the blackmail" charge tha,t this word had been mistakenly used instead of blacken, meaning to misrepresent. He said the implication was t,hat he had used his dual position of journafet and trade union official to extort money. Mr. B. Francis-Williams, in re-examination, read a, resolution of the Artisans' Union to the effect that if plaintiff did not take steps to disprove the libels he would be called on to resign. Plaintiff left the box about three o'clock, after an examination which had altogether twenty hours. He was followed by Rhys Roberts, who early in the case was referred to as the victimised secret ary. (Proceeding.)
Church Commission The Welsh Church Commission resumed sittings to-day at Westminster, Lord Justice Vaughan Williams presiding. Mr. John Lewis, of Ammanford, Carmar- thenshire, said .the area in the county undealt with by the Nonconformist witnesses hitherto called was that lying east and south of the River Towy from Llangadock Parish southwards (except Llajielly urban district). He now dealt with. the area wliio might con- veniently be called East Carmarthenshire, and extended from the Towy on the west to the Glamorgan boundary on the east, a dis- trict largely industrial. In 1901 there was a papulation of 51,157, but this ha-d increased Tbe number of Nonconformist communicants, together with the adherents (who were returned at 11,551), amounted to 34,367, or 67 per cent, of the population. The Sunday School scholars were returned at 19,874, and teachers at 1,907. Iti regard to evidence given generally as to adherents, the Chairman observed that the estimates which had been put in from all parts of IVales on that point were too uncer- tain to be used for statistical purposes. (Proceeding.)
In the Poiice-courts A fine of 5e. and costs was imposed at Aber- dare to-day upon Arthur Evans for being drunk and disorderly at Trecynon. Thomas Lewis and John Gavenagh, two young fellows, were at Aberdare to-day com- mitted for trial at the next quarter sessions on a charge of stealing a quantity of bolts from a marine store at Cwmbach. At Cardiff to-day, Rose Salmon (31) was fined L5 or one month for keeping a dis- orderly house at 2, Maria-street. For assist- ing in the management. Anetta Morns (30) was fined 20s. and cost, Charles Saloman (45) was committed for two months without the option of a fine.
THE NEW CABINET I Mr Lloyd George to be Chancellor of I the Exchequer I understand (says a Daily Despatch correspondent) that, though not yet finally decided, the following changes in the Govern- ment will take place: Mr. Asquith will be Prime Minister, MT. Lloyd George Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr. Winston Churchill President of the Board of Trade, and Mr. Lulu Harcourt Home Secretary, in place of Mr. Herbert Gladstone, who will succeed Sir Henry Fowler as Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. This arrangement is, of course, eusoeptible to alteration should any events at present unforeseen occur to make any further changes necessary, but it represents the new Cabinet that Mr. Asquith has in his mind when the work of Cabinet-making will actually devolve upon him. Report has it (says the Daily Telegraph ") that Colonel Seely is destined to be Under- Secretary of the Colonies when Mr. Winston Ohurcliill is promoted to Cabinet rank. His aocep-tane-e of office would not lead him to vacate his seat for the Abercromby Division of Liverpool. The Nationalists have inti- mated to the Government that they would not look with favour upon the appointment of Mr. Churchill as Chief Secretary for Ire- land. Well-informed members consider it probable that the right horn, gentleman will find himself installed in Whitehall-gardens when Mr. Lloyd George vacates the Presi- dency of the Board of Trade.
WELSH CLUB & PREMIER The committee of the Welsh Club has decided to give a complimentary dinner in honour of Mr. Price, Premier of South Aus. tralia, who is now in London. Sir Joihn Puleston will take the chair. Those present will probably include the Right Hon. D. Lloyd G-eorge, Sir S. T. Evans (Solicitor- General), and other prominent Welshmen in London. The diuner is to take place on April 7. at Whitehall Court, where the club j is likely to enter upon, a period of renewed vigour. The arrangements are in the hands of Oaptain J. C. Jenkins, the genial and anenretift eem-etaaw of the dtajb.

The Captain's Story FOUNDERING OF A MILFORD HAVEF TRAWLER Our Milford Haven representative on Mon- day interviewed Oaptain Setterfield. the regis. Uired owner of the steam trawler GoJdfindor, which foundered on Saturday off Godrevy Island, St. lT-ee, the crew bein-g all same4. The crew were sent home to Milford Haven. Oa-ptain SetterfJeld said: At, midnig-ht on Friday we were fishing off Godreyy ISIUIKL We had hauled the trawl ahoaNi. and shot it away again, and in shooting it touled; so we got it in a tram, and in doing- this one of the boards must have pa-erced the bottom of the vessel. We did not feel anything at the time, and, ptiliing the trawl over again, I went on to the bridge to start the engine ahead. We then found she was making; water fast, and we had only time to get the trawl in and out boat befo?<- the deolis were level -with the water. Within twenty minutes of the leaU being seen we left the vessel, a-nd within an hour sbe foundered. The Brixham smack Supreme waa standing by and pioked u., up, and at eight a.m. on Saturday we lauded at 8t. Ives." Captain Setterfield added that he was the registered owner of the Goldfi;ider. She was built in 1898, and since he had had the boat, she had been very serviceable, and he had been so fortunate that she had been a veri- table gold-finder to him. He had been W years fishing, and this was his fir,t mishap of a.ny kind. Of course, he had the boat insured, but her loss at such a busy season was a great misfortune to him.
