OLD-AGE PENSIONS ———— .——-—- DEMAND FOR FORMSI South Wales Applications SCENES AT THE POST OFFICES The machinery of the Old-Age Pensions Act began to work yesterday, for, though no pew- gioug will be pa.id uirtil January 1, tlTe first issue of the application forms was made at the post-offices, and during the next three months a large staff of officials will be engaged in investi.ga,ting the thousands of Claims sent in. We append a tabulated statement showing the number of claims made, as far as we have beon informed, at the different South WaJes post-offiom:- Aberdare and District 265 Pent re 3 Cardiff. 140 Treorky 2 Neath 60 P-rth J Fontypfldd 40 eymmer II Newport. 60 Ytrad 5 Sw.ama 57 Tonypandy I Tenhv.?. 8 'l're&law ""OO" 6 Llandyssul 40 0 Merthvr 21 Mardy. 4 Treherbert 16 TylMatown. 4 Ferndale 10 Of the 60 a/pplicarm at newport, not one -wae a womatfi. In the IAapndywul district of Carmarthenshire poor relief is general ELmong the aged poor, itn-d, therefore, the fact that there were 40 applications was astonishing. At Neath an old aiM of 76 bad been in receipt of 8s. per week from a kindly ex- employer, but this, of couree. did not dis- qualify him. The claims will have to be in all oases investigated by the pension officers, who in due course will made their report to the pension committee. How to Claim I The persons eligible for pensions are:- All British subjects (paupers and ex. prisoners excepted) with a smaller income than JE31 10s. a year, or 12s. Id. a week, who are now 70 years of age, or will ve on or before January 1 next. The scale of pensions is: — Weekly Income Pension. 8s. Id. (or under) 5s. 9-. id. 4s. 108. ld. 3s. 11s. ld. 2s. 128. ld. Is. Approved applicants will receive a "pension >rder" book. with the name and address on the cover. Theee orders will be signed eaoh week by the old man or woman in whose favour they are drawn, and will be cashed over the counter like a poatal order. The exact number of forms issued yester- day cannot be known until the chief pension officer at the General Poet Office receives the official returns, but the figures must run into many thousands. INCIDENTS AT CARDIFF I Extraordinary Career of an Aged Navvy I There was not quite the rush for claim forms at Cardiff that might have been expected, but, on the whole, a respectable number applied at the different poet-officee nearest their homes. Generally speaking, the applicants were intelligent and very respect- able, and were able to give the post-offioe officials details in most oases as to parentage, place of birth, &c. Included in their number were several women. Several of the appli- cants were over 80 years of age, but in most instances the ages were returned as between 70 and 75. One of the earliest oalktrs at the General Post-office for his form remarked, in reply to the query by the official as to his age, "God only knows. I am over 80." One other applicant gave in his age as 64, and when reminded that he was hardly old enoogh for a pension, seeing that the age-limit waa 70. he stated that he would be 70 next month. Another applioant was old enough to remember the time when there was only one postman in Cardiff and three police- men. He had lived in the city all his life One old gentleman was in a peculiar pre- dicament. His parents died when he was very young, and he 'does not know, his father's name, nor the exact place of his birth. He was brought up amongst navvies engaged in public works in various districts, pa,ssed on from one to another, and as timt went on became a navvy himself, and only knows that he is called John Jones, but whether that is his real name he is not quite certain. A special meeting of the Cardiff pensions committee, which will include the whole of tie city council, will be held. in the City-hall on Tuesday next to appoint sub-oommitteee and consider other business. On the rising; of the pensions committee on the same day a special meeting of the city council will be held, when letters will be rea-d from the Car- diff and District Friendly Societies Council, the Independent Order of Oddfellows, and the Supervisor of Inland Revenue relating to old-age pensions. The meeting will also take into consideration the operation of the Act and the regulations of the Looal Govern- ment Board, as well as the report of the town-clerk, and they will also fill any vacancies on the pensions committee. Post-Office Incidents At Kidderminster one pensioner gave iiie age as 93. Several men between 80 and 90 years applied at Smethwick. At Aberdare, where there are 753 residents over 70 years of age, there were 120 appli- cants. At Mountain Ash, where 286 people are eligible, 50 forme were supplied. About 200 applied at Leeds. One applicant stated he had resided in one district of the township for 71 years, and in that long Period he had occupied only two houses. An amusing answer was given to a post- master at Stratford, when he was assisting a'n applicant, and asked the question from the form, "Have you lived in the United Kingdom for twenty years?" "No," boldly answered the applicant. "I have lived aH my life in Stratford." In the Dunmow Union, which embraces 25 rural parishes in Essex, there are over 300 men and women entitled to the pension, and the greater part of these applied yesterday. One old lady fixed her age by stating that She was bom in the ye-gw tbe late Queen was crowned, and another produced '1.n ancient family Bible to support her claim. At King's Lynn one old man called at the Popt-omce as early as seven o'clock, and after An animated conversation with the clerk in charge was obliged to depart with the recom- mendation to call again, as the papers were not ready. Several of the applicants were over 90, and the majority were over 80 years of age. Some were paralysed, and had to be carried into the poet-office. Among the applicants at Ke-rmington-road Post-office was a veteran journalist, aged 81 years, living at Kennington, who boasts of the distinction of being the first man who brought to England the news of the flight of Louis Philippe from Paris, and the hasting of the Republican flag over the Hotel de Ville. Owing to a violent storm the trans- mission of the news waa delayed for several days, and Hr. Martin arrived by the first shin which sailed from Calais to Dover, which he reached on February 29, 1848.

NEWCASTLE RESULTI UNIONIST WINS THE SEAT I The result was declared sooner than expected. The Press Association correspondent says that it surprised no one in the constituency. Mr. Hartley did not niake his appearance in the oomti-ag-room. Mr. Shortt was the first to attend, shortly after nine o'clock. He chatted pleasantly with Mr. Renwick. The latter camie in at 10.30. It was then known that he could not be beaten. A great crowd surrounded the Town-hall, and there was loud cheering on the declara- tion of the poll. The figures were: I Mr. G. Ren-wick (U.) 13,863 Mr. E. Shortt (L.) 11.720 Alderman E. R. Hairtiey (goe.) 2,971 Unionist majority over Lib. 2,143 The Candidates' Views on the Result Interviewed after the declaration of the Poll, Mr Renwick said:—"I have gone on tariff Reform as the remedy for unemploy- ment. That has been the only question before the electors from first to last." Mr. Shortt, who was also interviewed, said he attributed the result to side issues. He complained of misiepresent-ation on the Lioensing Bill, and remarked that unem- ployment had 11a.d all adverse effect upon his chances. As to Socialism, he had taken the view that as a political force it had no more strength in New-castle than anywhere else. The Socialists here, as everywhere else, were there noisy crowds. He did not think that the dear coal agitation had had any effect. The people had laughed at it. In conclusion, he said: "Tl1.e two main things to whioh I attribute my defeat a<re the Licensing Bill and trade depression." Former elections for the two seLLts have resulted as follows:— u Labour a.nd Liberal majority in 190& 6,481. 1186. 1895. John Mofley (B.) 10,681 C. t. Hamond (U.) 12,853 J. Craig (R.) 10,172 W. D.

Benwick (U.) .• 11,223 Docksmen and Result The news of the result of the Newcastle election was received at the Cardiff Docks with a great deal of satisfaction. Mr. George Renwick, the successful oandi- dated, who is largely interested in the coal and shipping business of Newcastle, is also connected with Cardiff, where his son, Mr. George Renwick, aond his brother. Alderman W. H. Renwiok, carry on business. There is a large contin.gent of North- country folk at the Oaxdiff Docks. Newspaper Comments The "Westminster Gazette" says:—All tihe available evidence goes to show that the loss of the Irish vote to Mr. Shortt lost him the election. Whilst we regret this result, it is clear that, though Tariff Reform wins, it has a majority of the electors against it. The London "Star" remarksTht,> is a gain of a seat to the Opposition owing to the splitting of the Free Trade vote by t-he can- didature of Alderman Hartley, the Socialist, The present result is another and a very cogent argument in favour of the second ballot. The "Pall Mall Gazette" speaks of the result as "a great Unionist triumph."
Power and Glory" I LIFE IN THE AGAPEMONE A Marriage in Swansea I The birth of the child Power" in the I "Abode of lJove" at Bridg-water has once more drawn public attemtion to the doings of the Agvwpeanondtes. The Rev. W. A. Bell, ret.tor of Oharlynch, which ie in the immediate neighbourhood of the Agapemome, suggests that the Archbishop of Oauvterbuiry should be induoed to interfere and put an end to the scandal. The Bev. &my*fch-Pigott, the self-styled Messiah, he describes as a miserable creature. Yesterday Smyth-Pigott went for a motor run with has "spiritual wife," Sister Ruth, the mother of "Glory" aiud "Power." They went into Bridigwater, where, practically un- noticed, they remained a few moments, making some pwebasea, then they sped back to Spaxton. Followers of Mr. Prince I The affairs of the Agapeinonites and of I Mr. Prince, predecessor of Smyth-Pigott, have come before the courts of this country on at least two occasions. The first of these occasions was in ie50, when a petition was presented to the Court of Chancery on behalf of George Nottidge Thomas, an infant of four years of age, praying that some proper person should be appointed to be his guardian during his minority, and that his aather, George Robin- osn Thomas, might be restrained from apply- ing for any writ of habeas oorpus for the purpose of obtaining possession or custody of the infant, and also from taking forcible means or otherwise to obtain possession of him or in any manner interfering with him. The facts in the case were that in 1842 the father, who had been aclergyman of the Church of England, had left that commu- nion and had become a follower of a Mr. Prince, who had also been aclergyman of the Established Church, but had become the founder of a sect over which he possessed great influence. Rich Sisters' Conversion I In the same year Agnes Nottidge and four of her sitters, being then all unmarried, and residing with their mother, became fol- lowers of Mr. Prince. They were each entitled to a fortune of between L5,000 and £ 6,000. In June 1846 Miss Agnes Nottidge ooIlSented to marry Thomas; and two of her sisters oonsented to marry two other followers of Mir. IPrinee. On Jiily 9, 1845. Thomas amd Aignes Nottidige were married at Swainsea Church, amd her two eiatere were married to the two other members of the Agapsmone. In February,, 1846, Mrs. Thomas having manifested insmbordination to Prince, apqm- rently by expressing the desire to continue to ooihabdt with her husband, was deserted by her husband by Prince's orders. In the same year the infant George Nottidge Thomas was bom. Prince, with Thomas and others of hie fol- lowers, went to reside together a-t an estab- lishment called the Agapeinone, where they iprof-aseed and acted upon the doctrines tAiat the day of grace had passed and the day of judgment commenced, and that prayer, therefore, was su-perflou-s. The infant rema/ined in the oa-re of his mother and maternal grandmother, at the residence of the latter, who ptroperiy provided for his maintenance and education. The case tame before Vice-chancellor Knight on May 22, 1850, and his lordship granted the application. More Criticism .1 The second occasion arose ifn tine course ot an action brought by Ra.lph Clarke Nottidge, as administrator of his sister, Louisa Jane Nottidge, against Henry James Prinoe, the principal of the Agapemone, to obtain from the defendant securities to the value of £ 5,725 76. 7d., which had been transferred by Mifts Nottidge to the defendant. The learned vice-chancellor gave judgment for the plaintiff, with costs.
Couple Die Together "COULD STAND IT NO LONGER" Seeing that a Southampton public-house named the Ghiswick Arms, in St. Mary's- streot, had not been opened long after the customary hour yesterday, an entrance Wa5 effected by the police, who found th^t MT. and Mrs. G. A. Collins, the landlord and his wife, were dead. The oircumstances pointed to oxaiic acid poisoning, and a letter left by the man stating that he "could stand it no longer" indicated that he had given the poison to his wife and t-hen taken some himself. Mrs. Collins was an invalid, suffering from paralysis, and it seems that her lrusband, who hae been depressed, was upset by the departure the previou-s day of a servant accustomed to Joook after his wife. Two glasses showing traces of oxalic acid were fOUloo in the bedroom. It ie stated that husband and wife were devoted to eaoh other.

''Slow Murder" I Slow urder" I CRUEL CADOXTON HUSBAND I "mh Webiey, of 5, Arthur-street, Oadox. ton, sought a separation from. her husband, Alfred George Wobley, at Barry Polaoe-oou-rt to-day in consequence of Ms alleged persis- tent cruelty. Mr. J. A. Hughes, solicitor, appeared on behalf of the complainant, who salid she was married to the defendant on the 18th of November, 1901, at the Cardiff Registry Office. There were three child-ren, the eldest being six yeare of age and the youngest one month. They went to live at Barry six months ago, h-a-ving previously re-sided a.t OardHf. The defeind?nt had been \'&ry (vuel t .hr, and had often threatened to c-tit hef taii-oat. He frequently struck her, but not when anyone else was present. A month before her ba<by was born defendant threw water over her and the children when they were in bed, and then smashed the jug in the pass-age. He had thrown m-ilk over her, and on another occasion threw a pound of porl, ohopg and two pl-ates into the fire, at the same time th-rwatecning to do for her when her sister had gone. A fortnight ago her hus- band picked up a knife or fork off the table and rali after witness, but she got out of bhe house, and had not. returned since. Her husband was a hoaree painter, earning on an average C2 a weeik, and he had told her he wafi entitled to £1.& and two houses. Mary 'i'honlas, a married woman, of Ponty- pool, a sister of the complainant, said she had been living with the pa.rties for the last eight weeks. Webiey had. cruelly ill-treated his wife, and on one oceaeion took a pen- knife from his pookot and drew it across her neck. "It is slow murder for her, and no one knows it," added witness. Defendant said his wife had got into trouble in Gafdff, and had figured in the polioe-eourt for assaulting- another woman. The complainant had cut his head open with a poker, and he had been obliged to haw the wound stitched. Wlieii he had returned from work since living in Barry, no fire or supper awaited him, and his wife and her sister would be in the company of women of had character in the street, who hooted him. Mrs. Thomas wanted to get her sister back to Pontypool. It was untrue .that he (defen- dant) was coming into £ 1,800. He might, however, receive about zElO. A sepa,ration order was granted, defendant to contribute 12s. 6d. per week towards hie wife's maintenance, and pay the costs. Mirs. We-hl-ey waa ad so allowed the custody of the children. Defendant: Can I have the eddeet girl? Mr. Neale: You have heard the decision of the Bench.
Beating the Wind A COLLIER'S SINGULAR DEATH Remarkable evidence was tendered at an inquest hold at Bargoed to-day on James Carpent-or (24), who was brought home in an unconscious state on Monday and died t,he sa-me evening. Mr. A. Proeser, solicitor, and Mr. nii-cox appeared for the Powell Duffryn Co., and Mr. Evan Thomas for the relatives. George Powell, a collier, said he worked with Carpenter. The deceased was wrench- ing some coal with a hor when he complained of pains in t&e head. He said he would go out for some fresh air. Witness followed directly afterwards, and found Carpenter lying down insensible and groaning. On being conveyed home Dr. Dan Thomas saw him. The doctor now said he found an old soar on the rigiht temple. The brain and all the organs were perfectly healthy. In his opinion death was due to diabetic coma, which might harre been ibrongiht on by extreme exertion. He was not qiuite clear that it was due to the previous injury. Tlie Coroner: We have nothing positive anyhow. He complained of headaches. Is pa,in in the head one of the symptoms? —It may be the early symptoms. I don't think you need have a eerious injury to have diabetes. The coma might come from extreme exertion. The Coroner: I am not prepared to finish on what we have got here to-day, and very far from it too. I want something more specific. We are bealting the wind. It transpired that the man had been idle a. week just before last Christmas from a blow received in the oolliery. The inquest wa-s adjourned until Monday next to get the evidence of two other workmen. =======
The Cotton Lock-out NO SIGN OF A SETTLEMENT A settlement of the dispMie in the Lanca- shire cotton taiade seems to-day as far off as ever. The official organ, of the operatives aptpeals to the cardroom workers to take a second ballot, but there is no sign of this being done. The slr-,niiem, executive meet to-morrow, and probably their anomalous position will fonm a subject for disouesion. As yet there is rno indlootion of active intervention on the part of the Boacd of Trade. Panic-Stricken Shareholders 1 A Walk den correspondent telegraphe that the potiic stricken shareholders in the many new spanning companies affected by the lock-out axe iin,loaddmg their shares at big sacrifices. Some on wthich fifty shillings -have been paid are being sold to-day for ten shillings. Add andi dates' Views, Death to Liberalism Alderman Hartley, wtho also discussed the situation, sa,id he aid not recognise the defeat. His party had succeeded in keeping Liberals out, and they would do so every- where unless Liberals made a change. This action would tend towards reform. Death to Liberalism wias his cry. After paying all ex-pentsee of their election, the Wooialists had a handsome balance in hand, probaibly sufficient to pay the returning officer's fees in another contest.

CARDIFF STEAMER ASHORE Up to one o'clock thds afternoon Mr. fid ward Ni-ciholll, managing owner of tihe Oar- diff steamship Wclibook Hall, ashore at Damietta, near Port Said, had not received any further news of the vessel, but a rumour was current to the effect that she waa not in a favourable position. It will be remembered that some time ago Mr. Ediward Nicholl made a strong protest P.P .I. policies being tiuken out on one of his vessels by persons n<\t interested. It is understood that this is the vessel he referred to. She, however, completed her voyage without mishap, and again left Car- diff about throe weeks W with oua f-or Port Said. It is not known whether there have been any extensive placing of P.P.I. policies on the vessel for the present voyage. She w,a,s quoted on the nwurket this morning for r&-int#uranee at 10 guineas per cent. The master, Captain Campbell, of Shields, has served on the vessel for fourteen yeare as ohief officer and master. It is believed that, the crew of 26 hands are all safe. The steamer, which was formerly the steamship Lady Palmer, was constructed under special survey in 1889, and is the only v-e«3el in the Cardiff "Hall" Line not epecaa-Ily built for Mr. Edward Nicholl. The owner states that the vessel is lying on a. sandy bottom, and there is very little dang'eT. A Lloyd's Port Siawd message states that tihe Wellbeok Halil's cargo is being lightened.

Packet I NEWPORT MESStNGER CHARGED William Johft Wheeler (seventeen), AmneA; ley-Toaid, Newport, v as aharged on remand before the locad bench to-day that he. being a servant in the employ of the Postmaster- General, did feloniy stead a postal packet containing money, postage stamps, Ac. Mr. Lyndon Cooper appeared to prosecute on behalf of the Poetmaster-General, and said that recently several letters had been missed It would be remembered that a package of letters, which the prisoner had admitted opening and throwing into the Biver Wye, had subsequently been found in the Biver Severn. Mr. Prank Wint, a clerk in the secretary's office. Poet Office, London, said he had been making inquiries at Newport con- cerning the lose of certain letters. On Monday last he made up wh&t is known- as a "test" letter. The package contained money, a note, and stamps. Which was posted at a pillar box at Now- port railway station. The folowing morn- in.g he saw prisoner at the Newport Post Office. He told him who he was, and cautioned Mm. Witness then told him ,t,h,at a letter addressed "Oak-street. Isle of n igtht" had been in the letters, which he had deaJt with that morning, and it had disappeared, and he had been seen to throw a written communication away in Oak-street, Newporte, which had been enclosed in the package. 'He said, ycs, it is tme." He then took out a pocket-book, which contained the •Stamps, and with other coins taken from his pocket WtLt/tteets identified two half-crowns which hod been marked and put in the "test" packet. 111 his pockets were found coins to tihe vi&lue of L5 16s. 5d., which he admitted he had taken from letters. He also had in his possession a watch and two postal ordem for 15s. and 19s. respectively, which be said he bad taken from letters. Detective Albert Blake, of the Metropolitan Police attached to the General Post Office, saki he had kept observation on the prisoner on Tuesday morning last, and saw him throw the piece of paper (produced) away in Oak- street, which he picked up and identified as the communication included in a postal package which he had seen made up by last vritnees. Prisoned said, "I don't know what made me do it." Inspector Bartlett said prisoner was en- gaged as an indoor messenger at the Central Police-offioe, Newport, and for the past six months had been engaged as an assistant temporary postman. In acordance with in- structions he took a package from the pillar- box at Newport Station on Monday, and put it among tihe letters to be dealt with by the prisoners, who should have thrown it oat as a "mis-etort." Inspector S. Cox said he received prisoner into custody from Detective Blake. He made Ho reply to the charge. Prisoner, who had nothing to say, was comiimtted to tthke his trial at tihe next Mon-1 month Assises, bail being allowed.
Rich Woman's Body FOUND MONTHS AFTER DEATH A terrible discovery was made late lael night in an empty house at Bamsgate. The local police, acting on inquiries made from Lom-iiom by the relatives of Miss Taylor, the occupant of a riohly-furnis-hed house in Vale-square, entered her house. They found her dead in bed. The state of the body showed that she had been dead for several months. There was a pile of correspondence just inside tihe front dooT. Everything in the houee was in perfect order. It is understood (says to-day's telegrams ) that search at the house has not yielded satisfactory (results as to the ca/use of death. The body was remioved to the mortTiacry, where the police-eargeon made a.n examina- tion of the remains, and the result will be made known at the inquest. From what tradesmen say she indicated, seven weeks ago she did not want them to cadi any more. The oause of deaoth (says the Central News) is stated to have been starvation. Miss Annie Taylor had for long lived alone, and when the police entered the house they found amongst the letters, Ac., some con- taining messages asking why no replies had been received to previous communications. There was no food in the house, and the body, which lay im bed. was in a terrible condition, death evidently having occurred ma.ny weelos ago. The deceased lady was of considerable means, and owned the house, which was elaborately furnished.
Where is He P I- l CATHAYS BOY MISSING Thomas Morgan, fifteen years of age, has mysteriously disappeared from his home at 84, Oobu-rnerstreet, Cathays, nothing having been heard or seen of him since 9.30 Tuesday morning. His parents are, naturally, greatly perturbed, and both have been personally soouring the districts. Yesterday Mir. Morgan spent all day in the Bfhondda, Valley, visiting his relations at Merthyr Vale, Porth, and Trehafod, whilst Mrs. Morgtan has been making inquiries at the Bute Dooks. Twelve months ago the boy was a telegraph messenger, but forsook this, and worked with has father ae a widow-cleaner. He fell ill of diphtheria some months ago, however, and spent six weeks at the Sanatorium, and left there with a very weak he<art. He became depressed, and arrangements were made for him to visit h-is aunt at Pw-th on Thursday last. He went away from home on the Tuesday morning about 9.30, saying he intended going with a boy in a greengrocer's cart. This lad, however, saw nothing of him. The missing boy wa-s on the beet of terms 1ri.th his peo-ents, and gifted with more than average intelligence.

CITY TRAMWAYMEN'S WAGES At a meeting of the Cardliff Electrical Lighting Committee to-day, the Lord Mayor presiding, the electrical engineer (M'r. A. Ellis) ieforr-ed to a statement recently m.a.de by the secretary of the tramwaymen's t,ra,de representatives to the effect that the men were not paid time-and-a-half wages for night work. He was away on his holi-days at the time, but on his return he saw the men's representatives, and explained that the men were pa.id time and a half for work after midnight. It wis admitted by the men's representatives that they had been under a misapprehension in the matter, and that his (the engineer's) version was correct, promis- ing to marke the explanation pu-blio, but they had not yet done go.
CHIMNEY STACK THROWN t' Yesterday afternoon Mr. W. Larkins, the well-known Loudon steeplejack, successfully threw a huge chimney stack, weighing about 900 tons, at WaJlkigford, Berks. The ohimney stack, which is the property of Mr. G. D. Faber, M.P. (who was present and wit- nessed the fall), stood on the bank of the Thames. adjoining Weir Pool. It was in a tottering state, and as it defaced and spoiled -tbe beauty of the landscape the hon. gentle- man decided on its removal. It was a square stack, 130 feet high, and its demolition was effected without the slightest hitch.
"CLEAN AS NEW PIN" BOARDING-HOUSES RE-VISITED Thanks to the account of Councillor Edward Nicholl't) explorations among the sailors' boarding-houses of Cardiff on Wednesday, those places whereof the dirt and creepy things had made the amateur inspector f,ei "creepy" himself that same afternoon, were all on Thursday as nearly clean as it is pos- sible for such places to be. Early in the forenoon the councillor and a friend called into a few of the houses that he inspected previously. The view that met their critical ga-ze in each case seemed to utterly belie Wednesday's story. "Hallo!" said he to the genius of the first establishment visited, "you've changed things a bit since yesterday. "Yeg, pare," explained the affable boarding- house-keeper, Mistatre Jack he come here yesterday the night. Oh, yes, may be half- pas' nina the clocka. He say, 'You cleana dis. you cleana dat!' So I niaka cleana!" It was great trouble, but Mister Jack" insisted on having places limewaahed and otfrtain little patches scraped clean. He was peremptory, and so there was great trouole. But the place in each case was put even as he ordered it to be. Another house, the same thing. You could eat your dinner off the doormat. Still another house—a Chinese establish- ment-pure as the driven snow in its spot- lessness Mastah Jack him come along maybe eleven-maybe hap-pas' 'leben colocka night time las' night. He spe<akee, ohop-ohop make ebbly ting clean. What foh? I no can tell! Dis place alla time velly clean. He speak take away smell. Hap-pas, 'leben colooka volly late take away smell. Plenty tlouble, plenty bobbolee. Anyhow, I stay all night an' take away smell!" The Celestial was right. Lingering like the ghoet of a 'OSt a.roma.. the faint shadow- whiffs of fish and Poppy momentarily tan- talised the expectant nostril, and then were loot in the more potent fumes of lime chloride and carbolic. "Mr. Jack" had exorcised the smell. "As far as I could gather," said Mr. Nicholl, to a "Western Mail" repreeen- tative later in the day, 'Mr. Jack' is the eanitary inspector. And he evidently visited the district last night with results that are most wholesome. He was ailigent in his work. As one Chinaman said, he was still at it after eleven o'clock, whereas other boarding-house masters were told before nine o'clock to 'P1l!t their houses in order.' The result was that this morning we found every- thing creditably clean." Dr. Watford's Visit Later in the forenoon Dr. Walford, the health officer, went down to the Docks, a.nd made a tour of the sailors' boarding-houses in company of Mr. Nicholl and a small party. Dr. Robinson was expected to have come down for the same purpose by noon, but had not appeared by that hour, being probably detained by professional emer- genoies. Interviewed on the result of his tour with Dr. Walford, Mr. Nioholl expressed himself as highly pleased with the hygienic results of one night's supervision, but he reiterated his statement that the present system in regard to sailors' boarding-houses at Cardiff is not good. "The city council should take the matter np," said he, "and not let the fair fame of Cardiff be smudged by these nasty places in the heart of its business oentre. I do not wish to propose the destruction .of any exist- tag Ptate of things without suggesting a t'emy; and my idea in this matter is that tlw authorities ought to recognise the neoes- sity for the existence of quarters for alien P-Ailors, with their alien and not always delectable ways, and they should endeavour to ooncentrate these aliens in given districts, and Dot permit houses for their accommoda- tion to be opened by anybody and anyhow and anywhere, all over the business district. The opening of one of these houses unmis- takably de-preciartes all property values in the neighbourhood; and that fact alone—apart from all question of moral sentiment-showd ensure action by the authorities. "I would suggest that the authorities should purchase whole blocks in such thoroughfares as, say, Patrick-street, z,.Tid there build proper' houses for the accommodation of alieo sailors. They could have the Chinese all in one block, the Indians in another, the South Americans in another, and so on. Then everybody in each quarter would know what to expect therein. The police would know precisely who to wa.toh, the aJiens themselves would be happier in a congeries each of their own kind, and the property owners would have nothing to grumble at." The Chief Evil "As regards the other side of the problem?" inquired the newspaper representative. Do you suggest any remedy in respect of the custom of keeping English and Welsh girls lures to bring black and yellow sailor Colen to some of these lodging-houses pH "The subject is a delicate one to discuss in detail for publication," replied Mr. Nicholl, "but you understand very well that wha.t you mention is the chief evil that has to be taken in hand and drastically treated in this matter. The details are more for the consideration of the police and the adminis- trative authorities than for that of private individuals. At the same time, those who know the East and the tropics through expe- rience, as I do, will realise the social arid political gravity of this scandal and how it lowers us, the ruling race, in the eyes of these people of colour. I think I am safe in saying that east of Suez you cannot find a single real Englishwoman in a house of ill-repute—be it a so-called sailors' boarding-house or an establishment of a professedly less honest nature. English women who find their way into such places are simpdy deported. Up China way and in Japan and the Philippines there are Ameri- can women who profess to be no better than they ought to be, and trade on that profes- sion. But there are no English women. In India or the Straits, even American women of ill-repute are not allowed into the country for fear their preee-nos would injure the prestige of the sahib or the tuan.' Even Indian potentates may not have English wives or pseudo-wives; and it is only a few years since a young Malay ruler well known in this oountry got S, couple of Australian girts into difficulties by importing them to his oountry as typists. They were not allowed to land. The British police had them deported, though the State is nominally an independent one. The same rule applies everywhere in the Bast, the Far Fa6t, and the Eastern tropics. Yet the coolie classes of these nations, whose rulers may not look upon all English wo man in their own land. come here to Cardiff and secure Englishwomen and girls under the conditions I explained to yxyu yesterday." Dr Robinson's Visit Dr. James Robinson, J.P.. chairman of the Cardiff Health Oommittee, made a tour of inspection of the Cardiff boarding-houses on Thursday. He visited fifteen indiscriminately in the Docks district, and be saw nothing in any single house to which he could object as a sanitaorian or a medical man. He Intends to compile a Teport on the result of his visit. At the conclusion of his inspection Dr. Robinson expressed himself greatly surprised at the general ok-,anliners of the majority of the establishments visited. I Doctors' Evening Ramble I Dr. Robineon, accompanied by Drs. Can I tillon and Smith, made a further tom- of the boctrding-houses in the evening. They were preceded by Sanitary Inspector Holden, who flashed bis buH's eye Lantern upon hidden uncanny places, and a "Western )fail" representative was perriiitted to accompany the party- In one Greek establishment Dr. Smith hazarded a few lines from Homer, but from the deputy there was no intelligent response, for the fellow seemed to be puzzled by his own language. But, as Dr. Cantillon was not slow to point out, these modern Greeks are naturally unfamiliar with the language in its ancient form. I Are the Shipowners to Blame P We have received a. number of letters deal- ing with Councillor Nicholl's crusade, but pressure on our spdm is too great to give them fnIb. Mr. C. Damm, secretary of the Cardiff Branch of the National Sailors and Fire- men's Union. writes: I should like to point out that the National Sailors and Firemen's Urnion has constantly pointed out the bad conditions prevailing at Cardiff, but no notice has ever been taken of our complaints. I am of opinion that if shipowners would employ British, or at least oompet" n t European. sea- men, and pay for the best men, this would certainly decrease the number of low aliens in Cardiff. But as long as Mr. Nicholl and his co-shipowners prefer the cheap Greek or Asiatic, they are encouraging the degrading conditions so cleanly put forth by Mr. Nicholl. We are of opinion that an altera- tion in the granting of licences will in no way alter the conditions. If undesirables were not given preference of employment they would soon olear out, and much healthier conditions would prevail in board- ing-houses, and amongst all seamen sailing out of Cardiff." Mr. William Johnston, of Grange, writes in similar strain. The crox of the whole ques- tion, he says, iies in the employment of men at a living wage. A Ratepayer" wishes to refute MJr. Nwboll's statements. "I bawe," he says, had many yearrs practical experience of the board in g-h ouees in Bute-street, and must say I have never seen anything to confirm Mr. NichoH's statements- I myself have been in dozens of these houses, and can speak per- eonally of the thorough cleanliness of ttie premises, both iÐ6ide and outside."
Keeping Accounta I THE AUDITORS' CONFERENCE 1 The conference of the Incorporated Accountants and Auditors was resumed to- day at the City-hall, Cardiff, under the presidency of Mr. Harry Lloyd Price. Mr. J. Alloock, city treasurer, Cardiff, read an exhaustive and ably-written pamper on local taxation and municipal accounts. Dealing with borrowed capita-i and sinking funds with regard to tramway track, it was generally admittoed that some years before the equa-ted period for the re-payment of the loan wa« reached the whole of the track would requi-re renewing, and the sinking fond in hand would Dot be sufficient to re- pay that portion of the original loan. Where, during the period between the construction of tramways and the time when the traok, ca-rs, or machinery had to be renewed, the revenue balance had been partly or wholly transferred to the relief of rates. without first satisfying the cla-ims of depreciation, a very question- able state of finance would be brought into existence, for the ratepayers of 1908 would be receiving benefits which would have to be made good by the ratepayers of 1918. Mr. Allcock also dealt with the taxation of land values. A long discussion followed, in which djver- gent views were expressed on the question of funds being provided for depreciation wfien sinking funds were provided. Mr. Wrolley (Southampton) advocated one administrative body and one rate for muni- cipal areas, and also the equalisation of poor rates. A telling speech was delivered by Mr. Wil- son (Leeds) in which he deprecated the for- mation of depreciation funds, and said an equal poor rate was a fallacy. Vote of thanks were accorded to Mr. All- oock for his paper to the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress, the local committee, and others.
MORAL EDUCATION CONGRESS The flrat international moral education congress was held in London to-day. Most of the great English and Continental univer- sities were represented, as well as seventeen Governments. Professor Miehael Sadler, president, explained the objects of the con- gress, and &aid more should be done for the ethical guidance of the youth. At the Foreign Office Lord Fitzmaurice received at the Foreign Ofiioe this afternoon some three hundred delegates to the congress. Lord Fitsmaurice, replying, said there might he some who thought the congress might affect the great education controversy now going on in hng- land. 1fu ventured to think, however, that the issues the congress raised were broader and more importa-nt than those which oreated so much feeling here.
LIFE-SAVING EXAM. Captain Lindsay (chief constable of Glam- organ), Sergeant F. Smith (Gla.morgan Son- stabulary), the well-known Cardiff foot- baller, presented themselves at the Cardiff Corporation Baths to-day for the medallion and proficiency certificate examination of the Royal life Saving Society. The examiners were Dr. R. Taylor and Mr. J. J. Dunnell (Cardiff Baths), and the candidates, who have been under the instruction of Ser- geant Francis (City Police Forces, satisfied the examiners. Candidates have to swrm 100 yards on the breast and 50 yards on the back without hands, carrying a, peaient 80 yards in four different methods, and release themselves from the clutch of a drowning man in three distinct ways. They have to be able to pick up an object from the bottom of the batlis, and also raise a man from beneath the water. Artificial respiration is included in the examinaton, and canddates must be tho- roughly acquanted wth the contents of the Life-Saving Society's handbook. It is thought that gre&ter attention should be paid to life saving instructions, es- pecially in the seaside towns of the oounty, and the Glamorgan Council are at present considering the queston.
"KICKED LIKE A FOOTBALL" A complicated case was bea.rd at Black- wood to-day, in whioh Thomas Blunt (32) and Thomas Hammond (28), i-engam, comers, were summoned for assaulting Charles Edwards. Edwards's wife was summoned for assaulting Blunt's wife, and there were cross-summonsee against Mrs. Blunt and Mrs. Hammond for assaulting Mrs. Edwards. Charles Edwards told the court a graphic story of Blumt's appearance in front of his house and of a challenge to "fight it out" in ordei; to. settle the differences existing between them. As witness refused, Blunt struck him in the stomaah three times, and witness's wife ruebed to hie assistance with a hatohet helve. Bluntt dragged witness across the road, and then Hammond, who had come tW, assisted Blunt to carry on the afisauR. TMtty kicked him about like a foot- ball, and when he had got into the house Blunt kicked the door in. Witnesses were called to prove that Blunt was the aggressor. Bi-ant was fined .£3 and oos-ts. All the other enrawnoueee and cross-summonses were dis- missed.
UNCOVERED HATCHWAYS To-day (before the Cardiff magistrates) the Great Western Colliery, were summoned by Mr. Thomas Orwen Ediwards (his Majesty's In&pector of Factories) for leaving the hatch- way of a sailing vessel uncovered or unfenced whilst being loaded with coal at Card iff Docks. Mf. Gilbert Robe-neon, for the defence, expressed regTe-t on bahajtf of hie oiiente, who had given special instructions for the regula- ti-ons to be observed, and now redteirated those instructions. Under the circumstances he su-bmitted the case was one that might be met by tie infliction of a nominal penalty- Fined. 10s. and costs. Fytmao., Watson, and Co. were defendants in a somewhat similar caae—-for u-sing hatch- covers for stages during the loading- of a vessel, Mr. Handioock (Messrs. Maclean a.nd Hondcock) defendant, and raising the point that there was no case against bid clients, who were not liable, as it was not they who cm-ployed the trimmers. At the same tame, it was admitted that defendants' foreman drew the money f-rom them and paid the trimmers. fined 20s. and costs.
MADE OFF WITH THE BUNDLE Michael Delyno, a coloured man, wtio stated that he was wboke to speak six languages, was charged at Blackwood to-day with stealing a bundle of clothing from John Jones, oodlier, and also with assaulting Jones. Prosecutor stated that prisoner passed him on the road, and under the pretenoe of assisting him to carry the bundle knooked him down and made off with the clothes. Prisoner was sent to goaol for a. month.
CONDEMNED TO DEATH The Constantinople correspondent of the "New York Herald," Paris edition, ata-tes that the mosques have been placarded with a notice that Prince Sabahod Din. chief of the extreme Liberals, has been condemned to death by his political adversaries.

NO PREVIOUS COMPLAINT In an amusing case, heard at Dover County- court yesterday, the plaintiff claimed that he had practically rebuilt the cottage in which he lived He said it was so dilapidated when he went in tircut he had to re-bnild the front wall, which was bulging out, to partially refloor the house, Ac. While his wife was doing her hair upstairs her foot went through the floor. it was so bad. (Laughter.) Defendant (the landlord) stated tihat the house had been built about a hundred years, and nobody had complained about it before. (La-ughter.) Judge Shortt: That is like the story of the towel that had been used by 50 people, and nobody bad complained about it before. (laughter.)
