Alleged tlig Frauds CARDIFF MEN ARRESTED Two reepectably-dressea men, Richard Arendale Auger (28) and Thomas Murphy (21). both of Cardiff, were charged at Bristol on Thursday with obta,ining money orders by false pretences by means of an advertising scheme, which, the police allege, is extensive. Mr. Watson, who defended, said he under- stood the police wanted a remand, but he tsked for bail. Auger had been in business tor a number of years in Cardiff, and imongst o.er people, he had had a message from Sir Marchant Williams, stipendiary for erthyr, who was prepared to offer himself is surety. Murphy's father was chief super- rieor of Inland Revenue at Cardiff, and was well known. Mr. and Mrs. Williams, steel merchants, Cardiff, were also willing to oiier bail. Detective-inspector Tanner stated that the; prisoners had a room at 16. Colston-street, Bristol, where they received a number of replies—over a hundred—to an advertisement kffering Christmas turkeys, weighing 81b., at Is. 6d. each. They advertised in the Ilome of Oieale (Limited;. Whan he arrested them Luger said: There is no fraud, as we a-re fulfilling the conditions of the advertisement. An j person not satisfied we can refund them the money. Auger gave hia address a.s a hardware manufacturer, 41. St. Mary-street, Cardiff, lond his private address as 281, Newport-road, Dardiff. Murphy, who said he was a clerk to Auger's employ, gave his address as 284, Newport-road. Eighty letters were delivered it the defendants' office that morning. They contained money orders for 2s. 6d.. 5s., and 10s., evidently in reply to the advertisements. These had been taken charge of by the police. Auger explained that he traded in the name of Neale. The police desired a remand in order to make necessary inquiries, and opposed bail. The following advertisement had a.ppeared in papers having a circulation of 100 million copies:— Christmas Turkeys; 2s. 6d. To further advertise our ever-increasing business, we will supply the first 500 applicants with a fine English turkey, weighing Bib., carriage paid, for Christmas. Send P.O. 2s. 6d. Send ,-arly.-N-eale, 16, Colston-street. Bristol. There were similar advertisements offering gold and silver rings for sale. Auger had in his possession, the detective continued, a iank-book showing an overdraft of about £ 100 and a number of post-dated cheques for a considerable amount. Mr. Watson said that, inasmuch as the defendants had such a bailee as Sir Marchant Williams, they ought to be granted bail. After some discussion, Auger was reminded until to-morrow for the attendance of Sir M archant Williams to accept bail, and Murphy was admitted to bail, his father promising to take him badk to Cardiff. The case will be resumed on Deoember 18. Sir Marchant Williams, seen by one of our representatives, said:I knew Will,-ams ilightly, and knew him to be the adopted ton of people of the highest respectability. Phe little I knew of him impressed me with ft belief in his absolute integrity. Please don't praise me for becoming surety for him, because I should become surety for you or anybody else with similar credentials."
ESCAPADE OF AN CNDER-I GRADUATE. j At Oambridge Police-court on Thursday Wm. Ernest Wallace, the son of a K.C., aged twenty, undergraduate of Trinity College, was charged with malicious damage to three tradesmen's windows on the night of the 6th inst. Defendant had been dining with college friends, and he was afterwards seen by a postman to break tlie windows with a stone ball match-stand, doing damage to the extent of ten guineas in one case, lls. In another, and C2 12s. 6d. in a third. A lolicitor asked that the first charge might ie withdrawn. The Bench, however, said if t were a poor man he would be put upon lis trial. They sympathised with the father, ut decided that the law must take its ourse. Defendant would, therefore, be com- nitted for trial in the case of the ten ruineas damage. In the others defendant pleaded guilty, and he was fined C2 in each ,-a,se. with damages and costs.

NAVAL ARMAMENTS Prince Buelow delivered an important speech in the German Reichstag on Thursday on the question of the limitation of arma- ments. Prince Buelow stated that the reason why Germany had adopted an attitude of disapproval towards the proposed limita- tion was because no such proposal had been made to her. Germany regarded the inter- national limitation of armaments as an extremely desirable thing. Germany's reserve in this question was caused by doubts of prac- tical application. Wishing alone would do nothing. Technical mmcultiee embraced the displacement of a number of warships, naval construction, and standards. Where were the oriteria which were to be decisive in this matter? Even if it were possible to calculate the sum of existing interests in the seas of the world, how were unjustifiable aspirations to be separated from justifiable ones? How could the growth of interests and of economic ambitions be measured, and how could the technical inventions of the future and their consequences be reckoned with in advance? Further, Germany occupied in the centre of Europe the most unfavourable position strategically to be found on the map of all the five continents. Their armaments were dictated by the necessity of being able to protect themselves on various fronts. He did not deny that the situation in Europe at the present moment was not a particularly com- fortable one. What was, however, certain was that the foreign situation might beooiine worse in a moment, and tha.t their peace would be seriously threatened if their military armaments were reduced below standard. (Hear, hear.) Finally, the extent of their naval armaments was settled entirely from the podnt of view of the defence of their coasts and the protection of their trade. In conclusion the president stated that Germany stood by Austria- Hungary, and believed she could render best service to Dile interests of peace by allowing no doubt to arise as to the stability of that alliance-(land cheers)—and as to the serious- ness with which they regarded their duties as an ally. (Loud cheers.)-Iteuter.
PARLIAMENTARY LEVY I Speaking at the Lenox Constitutional Club, Bargoed, on Thursday, Colonel Morgan Lind- say referred to Mr. Brace's article in the "Western Mail" on the Parliamentary levy. Not evem the sophistries of Mr. Brace, he sa.id, could hold that it was just and fair that a man should be forced to pay towards a oa-uee that he believed and knew was opposed not œ1!ly to the interests of the country, but to his own vital interests as a person who had to earn his living aind keep his wife and family; opposed to his religion, patriotism, and the economic welfare of his coudti-y and himself. (Hear, hear.) They were living in a free country, but still people were forced to put their hands in their pockets to do things which they knew to be absolutely wrong. (Hear, hear.)
RAILWAYMEN AND LEVIES A largely attended and influential meeting was held on Thursday night in Lon- don of railway men from all poirts of the United Kingdom.

-— INJURED HAND AND WORK I JUDGE OWEN ALLOWS AN INTE- RESTING EXPERIMENT. In the compensation case of May v. Cordes I (Dos Works) Limited, which c.e befoTe his Honour Judge Owen at Newport on Thurs- day, the crux of the case was how much less able to do his work as a smith a man was who had lost the tops of the two middle fingers on the left hand. The accident happened on June 2, and May had been compensated for some few months. Mr. Lincoln Reed, who ap- peared for the respondents, contended that the man had recovered and could do his work. Dr. Crinks and Dr. Bassett having been caHed for We applicant, Dr. Marsh for the respondents said the man could soon familiarise himself with the loss of the two finger joints, and would be able to do his work as before. Mr. Lyndon Moore (for the applicant): Could he play cricket a.s well as before? Yes, I think he could. His Honour: I know a man who has lost the index finger who was one of the best sportsmen I ever knew. Mr. Lincoln Reed: One of the best cricketers I knew was a man who had lost his right arm and did his work with the left. His Honour suggested payment of a lump sum. Mr. Reed: We will take the man bacii and employ a man to assist him till he familiarises himself with the work. His Honour: Very well; he must be taken back at the same work and the same wages and given a trial, and he mustn't give up the first hour. Case adjourned till the January court.

PIT EXPLOSION. BLAENAVON BLAST. Three Miners Killed Biaenavon was startled in the early hours of this morning by an explosion at the Big Pit owned by the Biaenavon Iron and Steel Company (Limited). Three men were killed, viz Nat Brankley, single, LLanover-road, Biaen- avon. George Williams, married, Brewery-row. Biaenavon. George Jones, single, Duke-street, Biaen- a.von. AU the men were enga,ged as nightmen. They had finished their shift, and Brank- ley went into a hard heading, and Jones followed. This heading was not working. The gas must have .accumulated and was fired. Williams was outside the heading at the time, but all three men were killed. There were about 60 men in the colliery at the time, as the shift had nearly finished by four o'clook, but no one else was injured. The effect of the blast was felt in all parts, but it was not thought that an explosion had taiken place, as such an accident has not been known at Biaenavon before.
Drowned in Synagoguel I EXTRAORDINARY AFFAIR AT SWANSEA An extraordinary fatality occurred at the Jewish Synagogue, Goat-fc-treet, Swansea, on Thursday. Mrs. Richards, an elderly woman, living in Trinity-place, who has been care- taker and cleaner of the synagogue for many years, appears to have been engaged in her duties at the place of worship on Thursday afternoon, and by pome means or other fell iuto a bath filled with hot water, which is used for ceremonial ablutions. Probably, she was testing the heat of the water, when she overbalanced herself and tumbled into the bath. The water was hot, and it is assumed tha.t the woman was at once so scalded and terrified at her position that she could not manage to extricate herself. Three young ladies entered the synagogue after- wards also the husband of the woman, a cripple. The young ladies discovered what had happened, and when Mrs. Richards was taken out she was found to he quite dead. Police-conetable Jones took away the body. The old lady had gone to the synagogue at about ten in the morning, and her absence from home longer than usual led her hus- band to go to the place to look for her, only to fhdd her dead. The body was found at 3.20 p.m.
THE HEALTH OF THE KING The "Lancet" says:—"As there have been disquieting rumours abroad, we are glad to announce on the best of authority that the health of his Majesty the King gives no cause for anxiety. When his Majesty left Windsor an November 23 he had a slight cold. He proceeded from Windsor to OaBtle Rising, atod thence in a few days to Sand- ringham. He showed symptoms of influenza, and it was thought prudent that he .should keep his room, only leaving it for meals. On the third day he developed neturalgia, with slight fluctuation of tempera-tnTe. The condition improved under treatment, and, as a change of aAr to the seaside waa thought advisable, his Majesty proceeded to Brighton on December 8. Up to the present he has derived decided benefit from the change. Stormy weather at Brighton on Thursday kept the King indoors later than usual, but about noon the sun shone brilliantly, and his Majesty had a short spin before lunch. He was out agaijp in a motor brougham after lunch, the weather being fine, though breezy, .And made a short excursion to the outskirts of Hote and Brighton.
BODY IDENTIFIED BY A BRIDE. While an inquest was being held at the City Coroner's Court on Thursday on the body of an unkno vn man found in the Thames at Blackfriars on Wednesday a young woraetn entered the room, and said her husband, Walter John Smith (27), a waiter at the Junior United Service Club, in Charles- street, disappeared on November 24-tWQ days after they were married. The body was unrecognisable, but Charles W. E. Smith, an insurance agent, of Bow, identified the clothing and some articles of jewellery as those of his brother, and the. young woman also recognised these as belonging to her hnsbaaid. The jury found that. the body was that of Walter John SmitJi, and that there was no evidence to show how he ORM30 into the watm.
WALLABIES or WALES A PROPHECY AND THE REASONS i FOR IT. BY' SCRUTATOR" In writing a forecast of what is sure to prove an exciting contest such as the above one is trea,din,g on very perilous ground. The football prophet is aJLways regarded as a somewhat dangerous animal, and. he must, consequently, be always prepared to stand as target for the slings and arrows of an outraged (betting) public. When Cardiff played Swansea recently the Cardiff captain was quoted as having given Üardiff to win by twelve points. This just showa how mistakes are frequently made. tha<t individual actually said upon bciIJIg as>K.ed as to what he thought the result would be was- vh, uiere wilt only be about a dozen points in it at the end! AniJ. LiiiU s just exactly what there was in it at the end, and it matters not that the captain thougnt that the winning side would be his skue. But, speaking of the Wallaby-Welsh con- flict, no Welshman feels absolutely certain that his country will prove victorious. A few years ago tiungs would have been NastLy dnlerent. Today Morgan was a real good man in conjunction with Rhys Oaibe; Willie Llewellyn was a top-notcner with Gwyn .Nicnolis; and so we had as great, a quartette as Has over represented any wuiitry. inow the h eWl three-quarters for to-morrow are not in the same class with the four afore- mentioned. Of course, Willie Trew 1; for he is easily the finest man, both in attack and defence, in Wales to-day now that JNicholls is not in the arena. J.L." to tace Boxer Russell Jomnny Williams has been saving himseli up for this game on the Park. He has had no tihan,oe-oT practically iione-since his return from the Antipodes, but John .1. was one of the pronounced successes "down under," so must have a good knowledge of Australian tactics. He will hase "Boxer" Russel to look after, and a precious fine handful too, as the figures we quoted yester- day, by Rust-all's feats, show. Phil Hopkins has been offering from "flu" and a growing quinzy. -so it is impos- sible for him to be quite himself. If he is fit, he is quite good enough; and I sup- pose that if he is not fit,he wont play; he is not the sort of man to spoil his country's oh,ances by turning out unlit. In the event of his secession, Percy Bush will be called Oil, but as he has got a heavy cold about, which makes breathing difficult, and stops him from training, he oannot play either. This lets in "Hop" Haddocks; he has had experience of international games before, and should not let his side down, but they do say that "Hop" is not hopping with his usual vim this season. The remark passed by one of our Colonial cousins anent J. P. Jones, is significant. "vVe know 'Ponty' Jones!" he said, and he said it in a. satisfied way. Personally, I have not seen Jones play for a long time, but if he has oarried out the promise he ga-ve of making a real good 'un, I cannot understand the rema.rk quoted; but there it is, anyhow. I he Two Dicks It seems a thousand pities that Ha.rry Toft could not have been found a place some- wh,ere on his fo? where. On his form this season, he should ha-ve walked into the national side, and I'm sure that he and Trew would have made things very warm indeed in then centre. The "Two Dicks" was the right choice for half- back, and the Australians watched the per- formance of the famous pair down at Ply- mouth t'other day, with great interest. Mr. "Winky," at full-back, is the man for that spot, and if he only plays half as well as he has been doing all the season. every- thing will be all right in Wales' last line of defence. No one who saw it, will easily forget Mr. "Winky's" marvellous display a,ga,inst the New Zealanders in 1905, and he's playing better than ever just now. Individually the forwards are good, but what they will do as a collective whole one trembles to think. Edgar Morgan, Jack Brown, Jim Oa.s.ey, and Fred Smith would be very useful anetn to Wales in this anst-ch. and I, for one, should feel much more com- fortable if they were in the team. The War.a/tohfl are in strict training, and a!re in great trim. Their team had practi- cally been decided on, on Tuesday, but so excellent was the form displayed on the park to-day that one or two, or even three, changes are quite likely to occur. Calibre of the Opposition Enough was said in our columns yesterday to show the Calibre of the opposition far Saturday, and when the fact that these mn are playing together, living together, laugh- ing together, day after day, and that oon- sequently they know each other to a nicety, be added, and %6-o that they will in all pro- babiUty last the course better tihan our men. I must confeels tint for the first time in my life, I very much question the ability of Wales to win this match. Which is, per- haps, quite sufficient grounds for people to thinik that Wales will win easily. It is unfortunate, but none the less true, that the Australians have had it dinned into them for weeks past, that this game is going to be made a sort of wrestling match, that the rougher aide will win. A great deal has bean sa,id, and written, about Australian roughness, but as one who has seen them play, both here and in Australia, I can assert unreaitatingly, that the Australians are never the aggressors. They all, however, believe in the good old "Better to give than to receive," and if it is started on them, they will be bound to keep it up I know, for a fact, that they do not intend to start any roughness, so for the good of sport at large, Ü-is to be hoped that the home side will not start it. I have never known Wlaloo play a rough game unless it waa started on them, so as two teams of e, like nature are pitted a.gainst each other in this great game, we ought to see foot- ball of the beet descrfiption, pLayedl in accordance with the finest traditions of the g-ame, with the Australians a bit on top a.t the end. SCRUTATOR.
The Welshmen's Chances OPINIONS OF PLAYERS & OFFICIALS As usual we have gathered the opÍalrons of the leading followers of the Rugby game in Wales on the prospects of the Cymry upholding its proudi eminence, and an analysis of those opinions show that there ejra posaimist-s as well as optimists concerning to-morrow's great game on the Cardiff Arms Park. Brynmawr's "If" JACK DAVIES, Brynmuawr, secretary and vioe-oboair.Illian of Monmouthshire County:— If Wales icse this match it will be a seriors blow to Welsh football prestige, and the effect will be mtore keenly felt by the Hill clubs than by the leading Welsh clubs. At the same time, provided our players are fit and determined, the result should bring addi- tional glory for Welsh football. W. G. MORGAN, chairman of Brynma-wr CiulbIf the other six forwards are as good as Travers and Webb, Wales will win. In any case the tackling will have to be keen and determined, and the mistake of going for an opponent by the shoulders, as was done in the Glamorgan match, must not be repeated. Merthyr Plumps for Wales The football fraternity at Merthyr are not particularly confident of the Welshmen defeating the Wallabies in to-morrow's match. Mr. Harvey Boots, Mr. Hunter, and Mr. W. T. Jones, who may be tak-on to be qualified interpreters of the opindon of the devotees of the game in the town, incline to the belief that if the Weleh forwards can only hold their own then the the represen- ta,tives of the leek will be successful, but they do not predict a victory by a greater margin than of about three points. u Newport in Mourning At JSewport there is a good deal of division of opi-nion in anticipation of to-morrow's meeting. But for the most part the chances of the Wallabies iseem to be favoured. Betting has been done at a shade of odds on the visitors, who are looked upon to give a more combined display than Wales can hope to do. A good many Newport footballers have taken a line through the game that the Australians played in Glamorgan, and they argue tha/t Wales is not likely to do better than Glamorgan. There is, of coarse, the other side, and on it there are some very strong supporters of the Welsh team. "Our forwards will get the ball out quite often enoagh to set the Welsh backs going in such a fashion as will put the Wallabies entirely on the defensive, and when t'hat orarnes off we shall win comfort- ably enough," wajs the considered opinion of ,an ex-Welsh international, whose opinion is just as weighty without his name (be objects to be amongst the named prophets) as with it. The Old Firm"-Three Points MT. A. WYNDHAM JO. Merthyr VaJe and Mountain Ash, Welsh interoaliotaal half- back, is of ocftnkm that the zsaldi -will be a points, lire Wallabies are a brilliant lot, and will give a. good account of themselves. lt I- will be a hard, gruelling game. lreharris tor Wales "TAGG" WILLIAMS, the Treharris centre half, t,hinks Wales will win rather easily. We sliall beat them in the front and second lines. Not so confident of the threes. Wales ought to win by eleven points to five. ADD OPLN UXNS Of Wales V Wallabies NRATE. Nea.th opi-nion is a bit mixed over the Wales-WallaJCKi.es match, bu.t the majority of lUhoee who have been questioned think that ft ales will experience tteteat. Our Neath reprei3ouUi-ti>e had a conversa- tion with alt. W. B. jsiorgan, ior 22 years con- nected with the Neath ?iub, an ex-cliairman, and now vice-president.. That gentleman stated that Wa^ea had a very diihcult =-k to perform, and he was a?radd that they would be defeated a?ter a hard and keen struggle. ABERTILLESY. MR. T. J.

Wallabies match at Cardiff to-morrow are praAacaliy complete, and Mr. Walter Rees, who has been in Cardiff every day this week, is fully prepared for a huge crowd. There has been an exceptional demand for grand-stand tickets, and also for seats«inside the rope.s, and there is every indication that the attendance will not fall very much short of that which took up every inch of space on the occasion of the memorable All Blacks' match. The Wallabies since they returned to Cardiff on Monday have been practising r every day on the Cardiff Arms Park, and every man of the prospective fifteen is in perfect fettle. The Australian team has not yet been finally chosen, and the names will not be made known until to-day. Most of the Welsh players turned out. for a practice game on the Cardiff Arms Park on Thursday, and bad a quiet chat among themselves as to the tactics to be adopted to-morrow. The forwards all realise that nearly everything depends upon the amount of homest energy they put into their scrim- maging work and upon their skill in heeling Out the ball. Travers, who will be the leader of the forwards, has made heeling his pet study, and he is justly reputed to be one of the finest hookers in Wales. The Swansea and Llanelly forwards also know something about heeling, and if they can give practical effect to that knowledge to-morrow all will be well. The Wallabies make no secret of their keenness on winning this one match, and they care not what other matches they lose so long as they can beat Wales. It will give the combination the hall-mark of undisputed merit, and will, undoubtedly, act as a great fillip to Rugby football in Australia, and place it on a par with that of New Zealand. J. L. WILLIAMS WIIL PLAY. _I Lt was satisfactory to find that every one of the selected players, together with the reserves, turned out for the final practice on Thursday. The forwards practised scrim- maging with advan ta ge, and the backs indulged in several rounds of passing. J. L. Williams stated that there is no truth in the report that he intends standing down in favour of Bush, but asserted that he will play. The ground was soft and treacherous after the recent heavy rains, and is not fikely to, recover its dryness and firmness by to-morrow. This will be more advantageous to Wales than to the Wallabies, who are accustomed to playing on hard, fast grounds. So far they have been exceptionally lucky in play- ing on dry grounds, and in that respect have been more fortunate than the All Blacks or the Springboks, who sampled the British climate at its worst on a number of occa- sions. Just before the close of the afternoon's practice Phil Hopkins came into collision with Tom Evans, and it looked for the moment as if he had been rather seriously hlfrrt. liappily, this was not the case. Mr. Gil Evans has accepted the position of referee, and has notified Mr. Walter Rees to that effect. With the exception of Reggie Gibbs, not one of the selected players has G?)?b,- not one of the r intimated his intention of standing down, and there is no reason for anticipating any changes. A MATCH FOR MONMOUTHSHIRE. WALLABIEtS OFFER A DATE IN PLACE OF CANCELLED FIXTURE. At a meeting of the committee of the Mon- mouthshire County Football Club held at the Queen's Hotol, Newport, on Thursday night Mr. J. tomes, the hon. secretary, reported that the Wallabies had offered to play Monmouthshire on December SO or 31 in place of the fixture which had to be can- celled at pooitypool on October 19 on account of the wet groarnd. It was decided to play the match on Thurs- day, Deoember 31, at Newport, providing the Newport Athletic Club would grant the use of the ground. The Monmouthshire team will be selected at Newport on December &3. MATCHEiS WITH GLAMORGAN. Too match v. Glamorgan' County, which had previously been arranged to take place at Abertillesry on January 4, will now take place at Pcsntypool, and the extra match with Glamorgan on a date yet to be fixed, probably in Maroh. will take place at Aber- tillery. A CARDIFF TEAM'S VICTORY AT I BRECON. SCOTTISH INTERNATIONAL ASSISTS CHRIST COLLEGE. G. T. P'ts. Mr. I. A. Thomas' (Cardiff) XV. 0 3 9 Brecon Collie 1 o 3 An interesting encounter took place at Brecon on Thursday afternoon, when Mr. 1. A. Thomas brought a scratch team from Cardiff to play Christ College, who had the assistance of Shultz, the Scot-tish inter- national. The ground was in a wretched state. In a keen contest the visitors soon took the lead, Edwards scoring in the first five minutes, but the goal kick failed. Pritchard afterwards increased the Cardiff men's advantage by two tries, neither of which was converted, and at the interval his side led by nine points to nil. In the second half Shultz played a fine game for the College, who now had rather the bert-t-or of matters. Llewellyn gave them a penalty goal, thus diminishing the visitors' victory to nine points to three. Middlesex, 6; Eastern Counties, 0. Carlisle United, 1; Coventry City, 1. KAHNO'S TRAM V.

A SHOOTING ESTATE. [GAMEKEEPER AND BETTING ON THE SPORT. In the King's Bench Division on Thursday the hearing was concluded of the action by Mr. Frederick Marcus Modera to recover damages from Sir Walter Barttelot for alleged breach of warranty and misrepresen- tation in regard to the letting of a shooting estate. Jam^s Elliott, head gamekeeper to Sir Walm Barttelot, &aid that when Mr. Modera went to see the pheasants fed he said there were not more than 350, and wit- ness offered to bet him 50s. there were nearer 460. Are you in the habit of betting with strange gentlemen ?—If I think they a.re unreasonable. (LaughteT.) Would you offer to bet a gentleman a sovereign that a certain number of birds were shot?—Yes, if I thought there were 100 and he said only 50 wtere shot. (Laughter.) You would not mind betting with the jury about it?—I would not mind. (Laughter.) As a keeper, cannot you understand the vexation of a gentleman taking out four guns and only shooting eight pheasants?—Not exactly. (Laughter.) In further cross- examination, witness said he did not hear Mr. Scott, one of the guns, say there were more cats than pheasants. Mr. Justice Lawrance: If he had heard him he would have made a bet on it. (Laughter.) The jury found for plaintiff, damages .MOO. Judgment was given for Sir Walter Barttelot on a counter-claim for zC240 for rent, &o.
HOME FOR FALLEN GIRLS The proceeds of the concert at the Cory- Itell, Cardiff, on Saturday evening are in aid of the Rescue Home for Fallen Girls, a.nd it is hoped that all those who are in sympathy with the movement will make an effort to be present. The programme is a good one, and a, really enjoyable ooneert may be expected. Mrs. Edwards (wife of Principal Edwards), the president of the society, under whose audioes the concert will be held, will, in the interval, giive an account of the work and the results so far achieved. During the existence of the society many CØl3IeEI have been dealt with, and it is hoped that in a short time a home under its direct oontrol will be established, and that, as a result, a larger number will be given shelter and aided.

AN ARBITRATORS AWARD. I DECISION IN PORTHCAWL DISPUTE I UPHELD. In a Divisional Court of the King's Bench on Thursday (before Justices Bigham and Walton) the matter of the Porthcawl Urban District Oouncil v. Smith and 00. again came before the court. It was a motion by Messrs. Smith a.nd Oo. to set aside an arbitration award. Mr. Russell, K.C., and Mr. Hudson appeared for Messrs. Smith and Co., whilst Mr. J. A. Simon. K.C., and Mr. M'Ca.rdie represented the district council. The Lord Justices now had before them the arritr,-ItDT, to whom they put sundry questions. Mr. Justice Bigham said the point had been raised before the court that the resident engi'neer or the supfrir'te>ndent of works during the construction of the reservoir exceeded their duty. It \Y stated that they intelrf-ed with the mixing of the cement, and practically took the control of the work out of the hands of the contractors. The water percolated through the joints, and Messrs. Smith attributed that to the inter- ference with the mixing of the cement. In effect it was said that the evidence before the arbitrator was that the superintendent of the works and the resident engineer said "You must do the work this way and that way," thus taking charge of the whole matter and putting the cootra.c.torE on one side. so that they were unable to carry out the work in accordance with the teime of the con- tract. His Lordship asked if the evidence before him justified that statement. The Arbitrator: I a-m of opinion not. Mr. Justice Bigihain: You &ay no to that question ? The Arbitrator: Yes, 111 ? lord. Mr. Justice Bigham: Then I a.m of opinion that this motion must be dismissed. Mr. Justice Wa.lto. I agree. The motion was dismissed with coerte.

Notes and Selections. ESRER, Friday Morning. A soaking wet morning prevented the attendance at Gatwick yesterday from attaining the customary dimensions. Those who stayed away because of fear of a wet- ting iiad no reason to congratulate them- selves, as the afternoon turned out gloriously fine, and the sport was interesting from start to finish, although, except for a word of congratulation to an old-time favourite in Herbert Woodland upon his success on Cherry Syrup in the Winter Steepelchase, it can be passed over altogether. To-day the scene will be changed to Sandowp Park. This is rightly regarded as, after Liverpool, the best National Hunt meeting in the oountry, but, unfortunately, we can antici- pate weak and uninteresting sport. The chief event is the Grand Annual Handicap Hurdle. Amersham, who won last year, com- petes again, but to my think he has loet his relish for the game, and a likely trio are Green Dragon, Dafila, and Amabit. Harti- gan has Prince Robert a-nd Amersham en- gaged as well, but my vote goes to the Kempton faiure, AMABIT. I Other selections follow :— Long Ditton Hurdle.—CARUSO. Bookham Steeplechase.—FLAXFIELD.

Explosjve Purse SURPRISE FOR TWO SWINDLERS Some months ago a. French gentleman, named Jules Maliere, residing at Perreux, near Paris, was the victim at the St. Laxare Railway Station of two confidience-trick men, who rcufieved him of C70. He determined to be revenged, and with great patience manu- factured a purse in which he placed a fcalmAnite mercury cartridge. He ingeniously arranged the purse so that anyone opening it wotuld cause the cartridge to explode. M. M-aliere walked about for several months with the explosive purae in his pocket, but failed to again catch sight of those who had robbed him until yesterday. Then to his joy he perceived them in a wine shop. He at once put on an innocent air, and, as the men did not recognise him, entered into conversa- tion with them again. Together they went to a cafe, and after a pleasant hour had been passed M. Mali ere, sm ili ng blan dly, exchanged his purse with one of the sharpers for a portfolio apparently filled with bank- notes. Then M. Maliere accommodatingly went to buy a cigar, and the accomplices made off at once and went into a neighbouring square. One of them opened the purse, with the result that there was a loud explosion. The man was badly burnt on the face and hands, and rolled on t,he ground in agony. He was picked up by two policemen, who had been attracted by the sound of the explosion, and taken to hospital.
Balkan Outlook Î Paris, Friday.—The Vienna correspondent of the Echo de Paris" telegraph s tihat 60,000 Austrian trooips a;re reported to be I concentrated on the Dvina, wihilat another l 25,000 are collected in Hungary.

I Paris, Friday.—A telegram to the Echo de Paris" from Constantanople states that England has declined to furai-fth cavalry instruction for the 4th TuTkish Army Corps, at Eryercumin, in view of her friendly relations with Russia. The British Govern- ment explained to Turkey that the non- acceptance of the invitation was due to a desire to avoid giving displeasure to Russia, it's friend."
VIOLENT SCENE AT BARRY I People waiting at Barry Dock Station at a.bout four p.m. on Thursday were alarmed by what seems to have been a serious stabbing affray a.mon.g coloured seamen. The men had just been pa-id off a vessel at Barry, and were awaiting their train to Cardiff when a quarrel arose. Words led to blows, and it is alleged that one of their number, George Dally, whipped out a razor and inflicted three severe wounds on a companion, a marine fireman, named William Henry. Dally says that he was set upon by several of the -other men, and what he did was in self-defence. Dock-constable Harvey and Police-oonstable Luke Beirne arrested Dally and charged him with malicious wounding. Prisoner will probably be brought hefore the Bairry magistrates to-day. The injured man, Henry, is suffering from a severe wound four or five inches long in the baok, another three inches low above the collarbone, and a third, about an inch long, at the base of the skull. Henry is a British South African subject, and has fought against the Boers, as a. result of which he carries marks of several wounds on his body.
ON THE POINT OF DEATH Barry Seaman Dangerously Injured A foreign seaman, named Carl Johanson, who la-te on Wednesday night was admitted to the Town Accident Hospital at Barry Dock, suffering from injuries alleged to have been inflicteti in a fight, was on Thursday night reported to be in a critical condition, the doctors despairing of his recovery. It is stated Johansen received his injuries in an encounter with another seaman, named Ernest Govier, who has been arrested on a charge of unlawful wounding. Johansen's condition became so serious on Thursday— the facial artery having been severed—that an operation was performed by Dr. Bray and Dr. O'Donnell- Govier will be charged before the magistrates this morning, when the in- jured man will be unable to appear.
COLOURED MEN AND WOMEN Alleged Stabbing Affray at Cardiff I The coloured population of Maria-street., Card-iff Docks, was all agog on Thuieday night with excitement. As a coloured gentle- man presented the case to our representative, it was the old story about a woman.
