The Man in th3 Street. 4
The Man in th3 Street. 4 Why do aldermen and councillors shy at bazaars? The Lord Mayor of Cardiff (Alderman Lewis Morgan) went some little way to answer the question when he opened the "Palestine in Cardiff" Bazaar at the Park-hall yesterday. His lordship did not call particular attention to the real reason, which you and 1. de. reader, know so well, but provided a capital one in his own example. For everybody knows that at the beginning of his reign the chief magistrate of Car- diff made a good resolution that was not to be broken for over eleven months. On the whole, it must be said that the Lord Mayor has done particularly well to stick to his resolve right into the shadow which is now falling over the city to announce his impending retirement—unless the city council are equal to the very gracious act of re-electing one of the best lord mayors that have ever presided over the deliberations of the Corporation. How- ever, this is getting away from the ques- tion of the shyness of past, present, and future Lord Mayors when it comes to meeting a few hundred beautiful dames and maidens at a bazaar. Ah' Can that be the real reason ? Anyhow, it must be said that in most cases the wives of the aldermen and councillors make capital deputies, and it would probably be found that most of the city fathers. merely keep away from bazaars for the same reason that they never do any shopping if they can pos- sibly avoid it. A mere man is at the mercy of anybody who wants to sell him any- thing. And if the person selling some- thing is a lady, can it be any wonder that wives keep a very watchful eye on their husbands? Xot that the men may not talk to other ladies. No, that is nothing. But they know that if the city aldermen and councillors go into a place where there is something to be sold they will come out with empty pockets and arms full of articles that are not wanted. Buy- ing (and selling) is women's work, and when the attraction is doubled, as at the Park-hall, by veiled loveliness and the attractive robes of picturesque old Pajes- tine, well, it is wise to keep the Corpora- tion hubby at home. Besides, knowl,-dge of drains, waterworks, tramways, fire stations, and the management of a police force is of little use when one is faced by a battery of bright eyes. Even the wise ones of the earth have to suc- cumb to the dulcet tones of the bazaar charmer, who is commonly known as a stallholder. Every man to his work- and each woman to hers. Possibly the Antarctic regions form the paradise of rotifers, and what these tiny animals think of this country must synchronise somewhat with the opinions that old-time martyrs had concerning the funny little ways of the Spanish Inquisi- tion. At any rate, the specimens brought home from his last venture by Lieu- tenant Shackleton must be having any- thing but a comfortable time, and, besides being rather home-sick for the loss of the cosy comfort afforded by loved and close proximity with a polar bear, they have probably by this time arrived at the philosophic but inconsolable opinion that life is not all a pic-nic. They may, how- ever, find some comfort in the reflection that a British summer (according to the last example) is not exactly tropical in its nature. It was in his address at the Middlesex Hospital that Lieutenant Shackleton mentioned that some rotifers brought from the Antarctic, where they lived in normal temperatures between 50deg. and 60deg. F. below zero, have survived a temperature of 200deg. F. above zero. Another few degrees higher, however, would have settled those wonderfully adaptable animalculse, for no living thing has yet survived the temperature of boil- ing water. But it is intended to test the Antarctic rotifers at the other end of the heat scale, by submitting them to the temperature of liquid air-if they survive the thermometric descent to 312deg. F. below zero! Microbes have emerged from a month's sojourn in liquid air tem- peratures as lively as ever, and it is possible that rotifers, who can lie dor- mant for months at a time, may take a "nap" in the vicinity of the absolute zero, and resume their interrupted enjoy- ment of life when warmed up after their severe ordeal. It would seem "that no other experiment is left us but to set about trying these interesting rotifers on New Zealand mutton. Laid to rest in the refrigerator, they ought to become quite lively when served up with the Sunday dinner. However, the thoughts that now arise demand a prompt drop of the curtain. We may remember the rotifers when Lieutenant Shackleton comes to South Wales at the end of next month. Members of the Bassalleg Farmers' Association had the double joy yesterday of a remarkably good show and the pre- sence of their president, Viscount Tre- degar, who was in his usual capital form J t the luncheon. Since our grand- i-ithers were farmers' boys the art of agriculture has made enormous strides, and no wonder Lord Tredegar admitted chat ho did not know where it will all nd. But if the art has progressed, it has to bo remembered that much is anted in that direction to make up for ihe thousands of acres that have gone out jf cultivation. And it is to be hoped, as [lis lordship advised his Bassalleg friends, ,-Iiat the best use will be made of the pasture land that has succeeded the corn- iields to breed pedigree horses and cattle. The demand of the day is for the best in this, as well as in other directions, and the motor-cars, so far ftom killing out the horse, have helped to urge forward the demand for better blood. What effect airships will have upon the demands for horse-flesh cannot yet be guessed, but so long as wo have men like Lord Tredegar it may be taken that sonxe good use will be found for our old four-footed, friend.

EVICTED FROM A TEMPLE
EVICTED FROM A TEMPLE The benevolent-looking, middle-aged Ameri- can calling himself Prince Michael, who came to this country just over three years ago for the purpose of carrying out the re-erection of the deserted Jezroel tower, the ark and temple of the New and Latter Home of Israel, was yesterday evicted, with twenty of his brethren, under an order obtained in the High Court. When. "Prince" Michael came from the United States in 1906, he claimed to be the divineiy appointed successor to Jaines and Esther Jezreel, and that he had been commanded to finish the tower. "Prince" Michael declares tihot his eviction is illegal, on the ground that the land on which the tower stands has been paid for by the Houee of Israel.

Y,M.C.A. AND BILLIARDS The game of billiards has been the means of wrecking a number of lives, wad we ought not to touch it," said Mr. H. O'Camjor, the general secretary of the Dublin City Y.M .C.A., yesterday at tJle All-Ireland Y.M.C.A. Conference. "The billiard-table is one of the -evils which have crept into the association's work and helped to deaden the spiritual life." Some 70 or 80 per cent, of the young people in the billiard-rooms in Dublin on Sundays were Protestants, and he had found the rooms crowded between the hours of seven and nine, when thc,-?(np.,thl?"e ought to be at the service. The devil seemed to have a monopoly of the game, and they I could not deprive him of it. I

"Look -Out for the Shot."…
"Look Out for the Shot." I, REMARKABLE PROSECUTION. I Cardiff Man Committed for Trial I At Birmingham Police-court on Tuesday II. Plaisted, insurance broker, 80. Queen- street, Cardiff, appeared on a summons on a charge of a threat to publish, the plaintiff being J. E. Tattersall, divisional superinten- (lent of the Liverpool Victoria Legal Friendly Society, Birmingham. The defendant was represented by Mr. C. F. Willett, solicitor, Cardiff. Mr. Joy, in stating the circumstances, said the case was brought under Lord Campbell's Act. Mr. Tattersall, he said, occupied a posi- tion of trust, and had under his control about 500 collectors and agents in the Bir- mingham district, although in this particular case the effect of the letter was wasted because it had only brought about these proceedings. In the case of a nervous or susceptible man in a similar position the consequences might have been disastrous. In Cardiff a few months ago a magazine was starred, edited by the defendant Plaisted. He described himself as an insurance broker in the paper. In September last year a man named Hawkins severed his connection with the Liverpool Victoria Friendly Society, and subsequently after being in different occu- pations he sought re-instatenient. He was apparently unsuccessful, and Hawkins seems to have gone to this magazine. On the 25th of (September Mr. TattersaH received the following letter from Mr. Plaisted Dear Sir,—Mr. R. Hawkins, of 12, High- burv-road, King's Ileath, has written me with regard to his unBucoessful application to your society for re-instate men t as a col- lector. He has sent me a long statement of his career with your society, which, if you do not mind my saying so. appears to have been a succecisful one. The circum- stances under which he thought it neces- sary to resign his position with the society have been fully dealt with, and also the cause which he assigns for the bringing about of these circumstances. You are, doubtless, correct in your statement in your letter to him of the 21st inst., viz.. that no one has a right to employment in your society, but your peremptory refusal to re-accent the services of a man who has for so many years served your society so well is certainly open to comment and gives support to his statement as to the causes I have referred to which led up to the termination of his services with your society. He sayts he knows I cannot do anything for him in the matter, but thinks that good may corr.e of the matter being ven- tilated with the next issue of this paper. The matter certainly lends itself to com- ment, and, seeing that Mr. Hawkins himself was quite willing to work under you again and to overlook any feeling that may have hitherto existed, it seems to me most regret- table that you did not accept the offer of his services in the spirit with which they were tendered. I propo«\ therefore, with the aid of the papers i)cfor-o me to deal with the matter at length in the next issue, but being anxious, if possible, to avoid any mischief that may result from this case, thought I would write you first to see if you felt inclined to re-ooneider your decision. The reason of that letter, said Mr. Joy, was perfectly obvious. Here is a man who has come to me with a grievance. If you do not see your way to re-consider yonr deci- sion and give him the post he is applying for look out for the shot that is going to come from the next number of Insurance Truth." Mr. Tattersall took no notice of this, and on October 1 the defendant sent this further I-et,ter:- I have not heard from you in answer to my letter of the 25th ult., and am now put- ting the matter in hand for the next issue. You will, of course, understand that in a case like this I shall be bound to ignore any comment that is not made in writing, no matter by whom it may be made. Mr. Tattersall went into the box and proved the receipt of the letter. Mr. Willett asked that the summons be dis- missed, but the stipendiary (Mr. Morton Brown) held it was for the jury to decide whether the letter could be construed into a threat. Mr. Plaisted was thereupon committed to take his trial at the Novemiber assizes. He was liberated on bail.

DECAYED TEETH CAUSE DEATH
DECAYED TEETH CAUSE DEATH The death of Mrs. Lucy Alamb from lcfck- jaw was stated at a Southwark inquest yester- day to have probably been caused by decayed teeth. "It was at fh-gt thought that the tetanus was due to a wound in the foot, caused by a rusty nail, said Dr. William Johnson, house physician at Guy's Hospital, "but when t,he mouth was opened it was found that the teeth were septic, and had not been cared for. It is more likely that the lockjaw was due to the teeth, as the wound on the foot was a slight one." "The case shows the importance of having decayed tec.th attended to by a dentist," Dr. Waldo, the coroner, remarked. "Neglect allows germs to get into the mouth and set up poison in the system.

For a time li,3 travelled the South Wales Circuit, and in 1883 was appointed to a county-court judge- ship in Mid-Wales, being in 1884 transferred to Circuit No. 58, which includes the county- courts of Cardiff, Newport, Barry, Chepstow, Abergavenny, Tredegar, I)onLyp-ool, Mon- mouth, Rose, Grickhowell, and uak. On the retirement of Mr. H. G. Allen, K.C., as chairman of the Pembrokeshire Quarter ^esaiona in April, 1895, Judge Owen was appointed to the position by the unanimous vote of his other magistrates. From that date until 1907, when he retired, he was most regular a.nd painstaking in the discharge of his duties. Onuy on one occasion, when he was too ill to travel, was he aJsse-nt at the opening of the court. Judge Owen was also appointed chairman of the quarter sessions for the town and county of Haverfordwest raa-ny years ago, a post which his father held before him. That position also he resigned in 1907. P>etrhaps the most notewwus case Judge Owem. was called upon to try as chairman of the Pembrokeshire Quarter Sessions was that of the astute gentleman who posed as the Hon. Arthur Pelham, and victimised 9ewral people in Pembrokeshire before his career was brought to a close. As a oounty- court judge he was ever distinguished by the brillia-ntt rapidity with which he mas- tered the salient features of all cases which Clame before him, and the despatch with which he got through the business at the various courts. While allowing the advo- cates who appeared before him full scoipo to discuss all matters that were material to the issue, he always checked the introduc- tion of irrelevant matters which wasted the time of the court When he was first appointed it was observed that, although a Chancery man, he was paFtaoularly quick in picking up common law. Although he had. PLS mip-ht. «xrtte>cted :n towns like Cardiff and Newport, a number cf very knotty cases to decide, it was only on very rare occasions that his judgments were upset on appeal. As chal-mian of quarter sessions, j udge Owen was ddstin- guished by his exceeding fairness towards prisoners, especially those whom poverty pre- vented them being represented by counsel. Likewise in the county-court, he was very much aiye to the processes of that court being used to oppress the poor. He scrutinised very closely the claims of tally- men and moneylenders, and in judgment summons cases was careful to ascertain the means the defendant possessed to discharge the debt. His personal conviction was that the Judg- ment summons system was a bad one. His argument was that it encouraged e.rodif, because the plaintiff could enforce payment by threats of imprisonment, although the defendant might scarcely be able to sup- port hamaelf or his family. Judge Owen was strongly in favour of the reduction of the time allowed for the collection of a debt under the statute of Limitations, from six to two years. This, he thought, would minimise the credit system which now prevailed, which would be better for the trader and his customer. Judge Owen was noted for the dry humour which he introduced into the prcaaic pro- ceedings of the county-court. His smart laconic commentaries frequently provoked the laughter of the general public and those who were concerned in the businees of the court, whilst his caustic and scathing obser- vations, when these were called forth. were things to be dreaded. The Rev. James Owen, of Cheltenham, and Dr. Henry Owen, of Poyston, two of his brothers, are both well- known in the county of Pembroke, and have brilliant university careers. Judge and Journalist rT1.1- "'f-.L" .1'- ■ine iaio ju>u/ge wias oi a very kindly dis- position. A few years ago a South Wales rep-orter made use of a remark uttered by his Honour whilst adjudicating a case. The remark was duly published, but a few days later the newspaper was threatened with a libel action, because the utterance of the judge had been misrepresented." Confident that he had made no mistake, but anxious to satisfy his editor beyond doubt, the young journalist appealed to his Hon-our to give a written acknowledgment if he had been .reported correctly. Judge Owen, evi- dently appreciating the young man's con- cern, at once supplied him with the docu- ment asked for, and no more was heard of the libel action."
PEERAGE ROMANCE I
PEERAGE ROMANCE In the Edinburgh Court of Session on Tuesday the peerage case brought by Alex- ander Wentworth Macdonald Bosville. of Thorpe Hall, Bridlington, against Ronald Archibald Lord Macdonald, in the peerage of Ireland, residing at Armadale Castle, Isle of Skye, and against the Hon. Godfrey Evan Hugh Macdonald, curator bonis to Lord Macdonald, was mentioned. Mr. M'Millan, who appeared for the defen- dant, said the question at issue would neces- sarily involve a considerable amount of investigation, and the agents had adjusted a letter between themselves, in which they agreed to make forthcoming to each other all documents mentioned in the pleadings" He asked for a continuation order to bring the record into shape. Ijoird Skerrington granted the continuation until November 2 Plaintiff, it is stated, seeks to have declared the legitimacy of his grandfather, and to vindicate such other rights which may be descended to him as great grandson and nearest lawful heir of the third Lord M ac- donald, but does not claim the peerage or estates.

" Bombs by Post." i
Bombs by Post." i SWEDISH SCIENTIST CHARGED. There was a startling sequel at Bow-street, London, to the recent Bombs by post out- rages" in Sweden. About ten days ago parcels containing bombs were sent by post to Mr. John Hamman, manager of the Swedish Export Association, of Stockholm, and Mr. John Sjoholin, a factory owner. That received by the former exploded, blowing off two of his fingers and a thumb, but the other bomb fa ilea to go off. Dr. Martin Ekenburg, a prominent chemical scientist, and a member of the Swedish colony in London, appeared in the dock (before Sir Albert de Rutzen, sitting in the Extradition Court) on a charge of attempted murder. Dr. Danielson, the Swedish Oomsal-General, was among those in court. Accused is a heavily-built man, with dark hair turning grey. He was provided with a seat in the dock, and followed the proceed- ings intently. When formally charged he made no reply. 1 As the necessary papers had not yet arrived in England, a remand was ordered for a week. Prisoner's counsel asked for bail, but the magistrate said it was against the rule of the court to do so in such cases. In reply to a,nother question Sir Alfred agreed to prisoner being visited by a doctor in prison.
Woman and Her ChildI
Woman and Her Child I PATHETIC LETTERS IN A DIVORCE CASE I Remarkable letters were read in the Divorce Court on Tuesday when Mr. Justice Bargrave Deane heard the defended suit for a divorce brought by Mrs. Ada Snapper, said to be the daughter of the chairman of a well-known furnishing company, against her husband, Mr. Solomon Snapper, now of Not- tingham. The charges were cruelty and mis- conduct, which were denied. The misconduct alleged was with a lady called by counsel "Mrs. Doctor Jeffs," wife of Dr. Jeffs, of Grimsby. Opening the wife's case, Mr. H. T. Kemp, K.C., said both Mr. and Mrs. Snapper were of the Jewish faith, and were married in 1895. Mrs. Snapper had a dowry of £ 500, and coun- sel suggested it was probably not a i na;ria; of affection on the part of the husband, who at the time was in a humble way of business. The wife was only twenty years at the time of her wedding. Mr. Snapper was a man of violent and ungovernable temper, added counsel, and there was a great deal of un- pleasantness owing to his conduct. He had assaulted his wife on many occasions, thrown bottles of ink and prayer-books at her, smacked her face, and threatened to shoot her with a revolver. In 1897 the wife went home to her parents because of her hus- band's conduct, and at this time Mr. Snap- per wrote Mrs. Snapper's father:- Let my inhuman wife, and those respon- sible for her conduct, beware lest my in- tense love for her, God help me, may turn to morbid hatred for the cruel wrong she has done. For I have loved her with a love which can hardly burn out. She has ruined two persons' lives-mine and my darling child, who is worse than an orphan. She is neither mother nor wife. In 1904 Mrs. Snapper went for her health to Skegness, and afterwards her husband accused her of impropriety with some man. Subsequently Mr. Snapper took the child away to Nottingham, and the wife wrote:- I had written this letter, but on going to the post I find you have stolen my child. Bring my child back. Its mother wants it, or sure I am dead to you. You have broker. my heart. Give me my child. I want my child The child wants its mother. I don't mind what you have done to me, but give me my child, my child, my child. Bring me my child. I will not sleep night or /day. I shall still respect you, but I love my child and want it. Husband and wife ultimately parted, and in September, 1908. Mr. Snapper was staying at Matlock at a hydro establishment. A lady known as "Mrs. Doctor Jeffs" was also there. It was with this lady that the wife suggested Mr Snapper had misconducted himself. The hearing was adjourned.
SHANGHAIED AT'TACOMA ? I
SHANGHAIED AT'TACOMA ? I At P^m/brofesgfoiirre SeseAoras yesterday, Henry Lawrence ijaw (43), described as a fitter, was indicted on two charges of steal- ing clothing of the value of El 6s. 61d., the property of John Oarey, on July 22, and money and clothing amounting to £2 138. 6d., the money and property of James Davies, both of Lawes-street, Pembroke Dock. Mr. Marlay Samson prosecuted. Mr. Velyn Williams, after an interview with the prisoner, said the prisoner, acting on his advice, would plead guilty to both charges. The prisoner, he said, had placed before him a story of misfortunes whioh had led to his unfortunately taking up with what he could only describe as a series of crimes. If his story was true, prisoner was born in California 42 Years ago, and lived a perfectly honest life with his wife and five children. While at Tocoma he was shanghaied and inveigled on hoard a boat, and next found himself at Birkenhoorl some four years ago, absolutely penniless. He had been led into these crimes. He asked the court to deal w ith him leniently, and to a.llow him to get baok to his own country.—Replying to the chairman, the prisoner said he was an American cit.izen.-The Chairman said prisoner had been in prison since July, and he would receive an additional two months. When he came out of prison they would ask the Home Secretary to deport him to his own country.
"INSPECTED TO DEATH"I
"INSPECTED TO DEATH" I A fine inflicted on a woman for not Bend- ing her twelve-year-old son to school was remitted by the Old-street Police-court magistrate yesterday under pathetic circum- stan,ces. "The boy suffered from heart weakness and rheumatism," the mother told the magistrate betwen her sobs, "and he died last night. He was inspected to death. The. badgering of the school nurses and inspectors, who insisted on his attendance at school when he should have been in the open ait, hastened his death. I was fined for not lending him to school, and I have not the money to pay." I shall see that you are not punished in any way," the magis- trate stated. -I have often suggested that we suffer from an excess of inspectordom, but the officers have to obey the instruc- tions of those higher in authority."

X50,000 FIRE I
X50,000 FIRE I One of the most important Lisbon flour mills has ben destroyed by fire. The cause of the conflagration is not known. When assistance arrived the huge six-storey build- ing was a mass of flames, and, notwithstand- ing the efforts of all the Lisbon fire brigades, assisted by 150 of the mill workmen, the fire rapidly gained in intensity. All the floors, with their heavy machinery, collapsed, and the whole building fell in with a crash. Besides a number of injured, it is reported that five workmen were buried in the ruins. The loss is estimated at £ 50,000.

" Left in the Lurch." I
Left in the Lurch." I CHOIR CONDUCTOR & CIRL CHORISTER Some interesting evidence was given and a number of pathetically written letters were read in the course of an affiliation appeal heard at Pembrokeshire Quarter Sessions at Haverfordwest on Tuesday. Thomas Thomas, of Gwaenau, Nevern, appealed against an order made against him by the Newport (Pern.) magistrates to contribute towa.rds the maintenance of the illegitimate child of Elizabeth Howells, of Nantsue Farm, Nevern. Mr. W. Llewelyn Williams, M.P. (instructed by Mr. Evans, Fishguard), ap- peared for the appellant, and Mr. Marlay Samison (instructed by Mr. R. Evans, New- castle-Ernlyn) was for the respondent. The respondent, a pretty young woman, stated that the appellant was a married man, and she had known him for many years. He had been superintendent of the Sunday school at Caersalem, where the wit- ness also msed to attend, and he was the leader of the choir there. She and the appel- lant frequently met after the chapel services. She had received many presents from him, including a silver brooch and a silk hand- kerchief. After the birth of the child she wrote a letter to the appellant, containing the fol- lowing passage:— This will worry you on your deathbed, and when you will be rotting in the grave, you, Thomas, will be the father of the child." In another lefter to the appellant the witness wrote:- It is very bard on me. I am left in the lurch. I have finished with the meetings and the Sunday school for my life. I have broken my heart." A further communication from the witness to the appellant contained the following passages:- You are not going to have peace. I will worry you until your death if I don't get help. I am willing to make up with you on the sly. It is hard on me to go on with You, a married man." The witness stated in reply to Mr. Samson that the appellant had asked her to suffocate the child. The landlord of the Carpenters' Arms gave evidence of seeing the appellant and the respondent at his house on Barley Satur- day." Maria Jane Evans, of Nevern. said the appellant and the respondent on one occa- sion remained behind after the practice, and witness heard them whisper on the stairs after all the lights had been put out. Mary Howells, another young woman, gave evidence that, her suspicions being aroused, she asked a friend to accompany her back to the chapel. Appellant's Denial The appenant's story was a complete denial. I After a large number of witnesses had been I called, the appeal was dismissed.

Levers presiding, when the question of the medical staffing of the hospital was con- sidered.

He emphasised the layalty of Indians, and showed how Britain had gIven India the priceless boon of peace, and had lifted India to a higher moral plane. Lord RoSebery, who presided, saad the key of Empire in London and the destinies of India rested largely on the qualities of the British race.

Miss Matters Mobbed a
Miss Matters Mobbed a DEMONSTRATION Ar. CARMARTHEN. Suffragist propaganda gave rise to one of the rowdiest meetings held for some time in Carmarthen on Tuesday, when Miss Muriel Matters triecl to address a gathering near the Guildhall. Miss Matters was accompanied by Mit's Til lard, who she described as Madame Chairman." That lady had a patient hearing, and so had Miss Matters for a quarter of an hour. As the crowd increased, however, the conduct of a certain clement becamo so boisterous and threaten- ing that the police, fearing a tumult, came to the front. The speaker stood on a box, and efforts were made, said Miss Matters, to knock her off. Some men around pre- vented this, and eventually got the iron gates of the Guildhall open, and managed to squeeze her through a small aperture before any of the threatening crowd could get at her. The crowd afterwards dispersed, and Miss Matters returned to her lodgings. She looked pale, but was not noticeably agitated. She said she had had a rough time, but was not daunted, and hoped for greater things in future from Wales.
EIGHT HOURS ACT
EIGHT HOURS ACT The new working arrangements necessi- tated through the operation of the Mines Eight Hours Act was assigned as one of tha causes of the decrease in the tramway receipts at Pontypridd to a meeting of the council on Tuesday. The engineer (Mr. Teas- del) in his report stated that the alteration of the colliery hours had had a far-reaching effect upon the receipts and expenditure. A very noticeable decrease had taken place in the number of passengers riding in the after- noons. This was due to the whole of the top decks of the cars being used for the con- veyance of miners, a number of people who used to patronise the cars regularly having refrained from riding from Cilfynydd to Tre- forest, as they did not care for riding inside. A number of workmen's wives who went shopping in the afternoons were unable to do so now owing to the men arriving home between two and 3.30 p-m. Further, owing to the unsettl-ed state of trade, people had not the money to spend. Again, owing to the fact that workmen's tickets were now avail- able from 3.30 a.m. to 7.30 a.m., and from one p.m. to twelve midnight, this had also meant a loss in receipts. The new working arrangements had also entaile4 an addition of two drivers and two conductors, and this accounted for an additional expenditure of £ 12 per month. He suggested that the trans- fer tickets, which were being abused, should be done away with, and that the workmen's fare from Cilfynydd to Treforest be Hd., and Treforest to Trehafod lid.-The consideration of the report was deferred.
CHURCH COMMISSION Mr. F. H. M. Corbet has been appointed secretary to the Royal Commission on the Church in Wales as successor to Mr. Thomas. Mr. Corbet is a barrister. Mr. Frederick Hugh Mackenzie Corbet, the second son of Mr. Reginald John Corbet, J.P., M.L.C., Ceylon, was born at lia-reelo-na, in 1862, and was educated privately in Cey- ion. In 1885 he became private secretary to Mr. Justice Lawrie, and in 1886 librarian of the Colombo Museum, which post he relin- quished in 1893. After filling various publio offices in Geylou Mr. Corbet came to London, and was called to the Bar at Gray's Inn in 1897. He is chairman and director of several' South African companies, and member of committee or council of several societies, notably the Jlardwicke Society, of which he was president in 1902. Mr. Corbet, who wears the Jubilee Gold Medal of Ceylon, is the author of several official reports, and also "The Laws of the Empire," 1901, and the introduction to the Ceylon portion of the4 Golden Book of India, 1900.
CORPORAL PUNISHMENT Mr. Llewelyn W. Williams, hon. secretary of the Society for the Reform of School Discipline, has received a letter from the President of the Board of Education in reply to a communication from the society asking whether the Board of Education proposes to take action to diminish the use of cor- poral punishment in schools, either by order- ing returns to be made of the 'number of inflictions, or by issuing prohibitory instruc- tions relating to the same, and including a prohibition against striking children OIl the head." Mr. Rurtciman says he has no reason too believe that cases of the infliction of exces- sive oorporal punishment are other than rare. and he does not consider any further instruc- tions are necessary. The board's views on the. subject were included in a volume entitled Suggestions for the Consideration of Teachers," issued in 1905. a:nd they are, he believes, perfectly well-known.
WOMAN'S FATAL FALL ^
WOMAN'S FATAL FALL An inquest was held on Tuesday afternoon on the body of Ellen Thomas, who was found lying in the street after falling over the steps known as Mansed George's Steps, Strand, Swansea Dr. O'Swllivan said death was due to shock from the fall, rather than through injury The steps were very dangerous, and witness would not venture down them without a. stick. The Coroner said there was no suggestion that deceased was under the influence of drink. These steps were largely used, and anybody ooudd turn out the lamp. That day the place yas full of filth and unfit for people to pass through. The jury returned a verdict of Accidental death," with a rider drawing the attention of the-oorporaticyn to the danger of the steps.
