READING PENNY NOVELS I William Price, a bright and resrpectable- lcoking lad of sixteen, stood bare-footed in the dock at Cardiff Police-court to-day charged with stealing a purse containing a.bout 14s., the property of Emily Bezant, of 25, llinister-stireet, a.nd of obtaining three pairs at boots, value Ll 0B. 5d., by false pre- tences from Sarah John, boot dealer, 115, Clifton-etreet. According to the evidence, prisoner, whose paonents reside at Seng- henydid, called at Mrs. B-ezant'.s house in search of lodgings, and was admitted into the kitohen. He was left alone for about ten miniujtes, and when Mrs. Recant returned she found that tthe prisoner had disappeared, and that a. purse of money which she placed in a drawer and from which the prisoner had previously seen her take some money was missing'. At Mrs. John's shop prisoner represented tba-t he had been sent by his father for three pains of boots on "appro," and that his parents, 'who were known to Mirs. John, had come to lire at Cardiff. This afterwards turned. out to be false, and pri- soner was subsequently arrested by Detcctive- seirgeant Dicks, to whom he admitted stealing the parse and filching boots. John Price, an engine-driver, of Senghenydd, the boy's father, stated thot his son was a most dis- obedient boy, and he had tried in every shape and form to correct him. He attributed his wayward conduct to reading penny I novels. The Chairman (Mr. D. A. Davies) said they were very reluctant to send the I lad to prison, although, he deserved to £ o, because they thought it would be a disgrace to his parents. They would, therefore, bind him over in the sum of a to be, of good conduct for the next six months.
JUDGE'S SUSPICION REMOVED I The case of Hannah v. Hannah and Nevitt was again before the Divorce Court yester- day. The suit is one where the petitioner, James Hannah, a herbalist, of Milkstone- road, Rochdale, sought the dissolution of his marriage because of the misconduct of his wife with the co-respondent, Alfred Nevitt. His Lordship, at tihe opening of the case last week, expressed the opinion that it seemed very much as if the petitioner had oondoned the charges of misconduct, as the wife remained in the house afterwards. Ysterday counsel said he would call a son of the peti- tioner who would speak to his father sleep- ing in another room while the wife remained in the house. After other evidence, his.Lord- ship granted the petitioner a decree nisi, with costs and custody of the child.
PONTLOTTYN COAL SEAMS I The hearing of the action of Brewer v. the 1 Rhymney Iron Company (Limited), brought to restra.in the working of coal under the Pontlottyn Estates in alleged breach of the covenants of the mining leases, was continued (before Mr. Justice Parker) to-day. Mr. j Vachell, mining engineer, of Newport, called for the plaintiffs, in cross-examination, said it would have been better if the ooaJ under the village of Pontlottyn. had not been worked out. He did not know whether not to work it would have been a. breach of the defendants' covenants." Had it been worked out by the Lengwall system he did not think that any injury would have been caused. He was giving his evidence as the plaintiff's engineer, and not as a 4mining expert. (Proceeding.)
KILLED BY LIGHTNING i A sharp thunderstorm. accompanied by several heavy falls of hail, occurred yester- day in Eastern Dumbartonshire and Wes- tern Stirlingshire. A. Kirkintilloch vanman named Alexander Latham, while going to his horse's head, was struck gy lightning and killed instantly. WhaWedale is flooded, and dead sheep have been found floating down the river. As many as thirty-eight oareaees passed under Ben RhyddinigBrkige yesterday.
BIRTHS AT THE ZOO I The fire sigin of t-he turn of the season of the Zoological Ga,rool16 comes in the shape of the rat-like head of an infant kangaroo tak irngite first peep at the world from the maternal pouch. Thie sight may now be seen in the warmed -age in the ostrich house, but it will be many weeks before the "baby" takes its first hop. An- unusual occurrence is the birth of a March deer. which is doing very well in spite of antici- pating the proper season by many months.
KNOCKED DOWN BY MOTOR Edward Jones and William Lee, neither of whom had a fixed abode, were knocked down by a motor-oar in Broaod Sanctuary, West- minster, yesterday, and were ta-ken to West- minster Sospital seriously injured. Jones was wounded severely in the head, and sus- tained internal injuries. Lee received injuries to his back.
I" WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR ME. -0 Reasons Given by the Cardiff Bandidates. I The two candidates for Cardiff Boroughs, being asked to give reasons why the electors should vote for them, to be published in the Evening Express," have kindly furnished the following statements;- LORD NINJAN STUART says- In the first place, I think the electors of Cardiff should vote for me to-morrow because, Lord Ninian Stuart. in common with the U n i o n i s t candidates throughout the country, I stand for a revision in our tariff system, which is the issue of paramount importance at this election- No one who has taken the trouble to examine trade statistics would be prepared to affirm that the commercial and industrial health 'of England at the present time is at all satisfactory,, and close inquiry leads one to the conclusion that the fa-ot must be attributed to our continuance of an unreasonable, one- sidied sysotem of free imports, which has been abandoned by all our great competitors in the race for commercial supremacy. The alarming problem of unemployment- undoubtedly the question that calls for first attention in this ciuntry-indic-ates the con- dition of our inditftries, and even in Cardiff we find large numbers of men, who, though willing and anxious to earn an honest living, cannot obtain employment. And when we consider statistics of unemployment let us think of the anxiety of the housewife and the lot of the family, whose privations are in many oasei withheld from the public view. The Liberal party, when controlling the reins of Governnaent, made no attempt to deal with unemployment in an cffective way. What constructive policy, I ask, are they able to put forward at present in Regard to this problem? They have none. The only pro- posal before the electors is that we should proceed, by a scientific, well-regulated arrangement of tariffs, to protect our industries and our workers from unfair foreign competition, so tha-t we may have the British public supplied with British goods made with British hands, rather than with the dumped good's of foreign countries. To Cheok Dumping. A small tax on imported manufactured goods would mean a reduction in the quantities of finished gosds sent to this country and an increase in the importation cf raw material. I ask the electors of Cardiff to consider whether it is not better that our own workers should carry out all the various processes of manufacture. It has been shown conclusively, however, that, as the quantities of imported manufactured goods at Cardiff have been steadily increasing, there has been a corresponding decrease in the importation of the raw material. The change in the incidence of taxation for which I stand will not only give mo constant eirip-loymeiit to the men, but it will afford security to capital, and we shall be able to negotiate commercial treaties with foreign countries and secure better terms for the admission of our manufactures to those countries. While these proposals will not increase the cost of commodities, it will greatly increase the power of the commutiity to purchase them. The suggested tax on imported foreign wbea-t-oi,.r Colonies- will, of course, be give,, a preference—will lea-d to stiffer competition, which will tend to decrease, ratlwr than increase, the price of bread. And the preference to our Colonies will have the effect of tight-ening up the bonds of unity between us and our brothers across the ■seas. I stand for a more closely- united Empire. .n our ta,Yztion. ?ve Moreover, in re-arranging our taxation, we should so far as possible avoid taxing any. tiling which we cannot produce ourselves. At present-notwithstanding all the shouting about food taxes—we have tariffs on sugar, tea, coffee, and dried fruite. There is no reason why these should be continued and why we should not in future arrange cur taxation so that we may have our revenue and protect our home industries at the same time. Reform of the House of Lords Then I stand for the reform of the House of Lords on the lines suggested by Lord Rose- bery's committee—I favour the abolition of the hereditary principle and the introduction of an elective system. The Budget proposals will check the transfer of land. The taxes will be a most serious burden to the numerous small holders—who far exceed in number the large landowners-and will generally tend to a depreciation of landed investments, in which &o many Friendly and Industrial Societies are interested. I favour leasehold enfranchise- ment and a system whereby small holders may become the absolute owners of their holdings. In the matter of education, I stand for tolerancte towards all religious sects and for the right of parents to have their chil- dren educated in their own faith. I favour the maintenance of a strong Navy, which is so necessary not only to keep our shores inviolate, but to protect our great Mercantile Marine. A strong and efficient Army must also be maintained. Pensions at 65 It will make no anTerence, a-s regards the continuance of old-age pensions, which pa.rty will be returned to power. But I favour the reduction of the qualifying age from 70 to 65 and the amendment of t,he Act so as to prevent any harshness in caees where poor relief has been given. Further, I consider members of Friendly and similar societies, who have endeavoured by thrift t-o provide for their old age, should receive the same benefits finder the Act as those who bave made no provision. I vet me say, in conclusion, that, if I a-m returned aoS the representative of this great and prosperous city, I shall consider myself the servant o-f those who may vote against me just a^ much as of those who give me their support, and I shall at all times be ready and anxious to render any service that may be in my power to any persons or authorities in Cardiff. The trade questions of Cardiff, which are of such importance to the majority of the residents, shall receive nay IIDOS.t careful consideration, and I pledge myself to put the interests of the city in t-le forefront of my work. Mr. D. A. THOMAS says- The principal reasons Why I consider the electors of Cardiff would be well advised to support me at the forth- coming poll are that I stand for the Constitutional rights of the Commons' House of Parliament, and agiaimst the arrogant usur- pation of those rights by the hereditary Chamber. I stand, further, for the equitable taxation of land values and for the main- tena-fice of the fiscal system under which this country has made such enormous progress. These three ques- tions are of' particular interest at the mo-m-en t to the people croardiff. I regret very much that attempts have been made during the present contest to confuse the issue and drag in personal matters that have no bearing what- ever upon title work that a member of Parliament has to do at Westminster. I can Mr.D.A.Tbomas. I claim that not only have I a very great interest in the prosperity of the port, but that .my long business connection at the Docks will prove of value to Cardiff if I am suffi- ciently fortunate to be elected on Wednesday next. A significant feature of the present contest is the large number of Conservatives and Unionists who recognise that the issues are so important as to obliterate, for the time being, the ordinary party lines of division, and who are going to cast t.heir votes in my favour. I sihould like to take this opportunity of .refuting two or three criticisms cf a personal kind that have been directed against my can- didature. I can best do this, perhaps, by merely stating my position in regard to them. I am one of the largest shippers of coal at Cardiff, the companies with which I am associated being responsible for the export of between four and five million tons annually from the port of Cardiff, a large proportion of which is actually exported from the Bute Docks. These companies give employment to about 12,000 men. The rates of wages paid in the Cambrian Collieries, with which I have been actively associatoo for over 25 years, are, if not quite—I believe they are quite—at any rate, among the highest paid in the whole of the South Wales coalfield. The Cambrian Combine, with which I am associated a8 a. director— unlike the trusts which are formed behind the tariff walls of Protectionist countries for the purpose of raising prices of commodities to the consumers in those countries-has been formed with precisely the reverse object. The object of the combine is to secure a fair price from the foreigner, nineteen-twentieths of the coal produced by our collieries being shipped abroad, and by helping to maintain the price to the foreigner we not only benefit the shareholder^, but we help to maintain and increase the rate of wages of colliery workmen throughout the whole of South Wales, whose Wages are mainly governed by th selling price of coal. By taking a small interest in a foreign steamship company, for the purpose of securing the business of that company when their vessels trade to Cardiff, I believe I am assisting the trade and commercial interests of our great port. My intereet in this company is an exceed- ingly emall one-I only wish it were larger— and the boats to which reference has been ma-de by my politica.l opponents are not owned, as they assume, by Messrs. Lysberg Limited, of which I am chairman. In any cate, I think the Conservative ship- owners of Cardiff, who have raised this matter, should have been the last people to raise the question, seeing that the majority of them employ foreign sailors to man their boats, though sailing under the British flag. The 1898 Strike. It has been charged against me that the Cambrian Collieries worked in 1893, while the majority of collieries in the coalfield were idle. We were outside the Coalownere' Asso- ciation, and on that occasion, when the men asked for a. 10 per cent. advance, I was satisfied, as a business man, that the condi- tions cf trade fully warranted it, and I gave the advance, and a. little later another 10 per cent, advance. The ultimate issue of the great, struggle that then took place showed that I was more than justified. The fact that I and the other colliery owners who worked their collieries were right, and that the Coalowners' Associa- tion was wrong, was fully shown, for within a comparatively hort, period the employers, after the men had returned to work, were compelled to give them over 50 per cent. advance in wages, and, in fact, wages reached a higher rate than had ever been known in the coalfield. In regard to education, I feel that I am entitled to the support of all electors, irre- spective of creed, for I desire to see justice done to both denominational schools and those under popular control; and. provided that there is within the reach of the parents of every child in the country a school under popular control, in which there are no sectarian tests for rea-onNs-and that would be the case in CaTdiff-I would favour the appointment, both in Church a.nd Catholic schools, of Church and Catholic teachers respectively by fhe ma-nagcr-. I sincerely hope that when the polling day arrives Oardiff electors will realise the gravity of the crisis and the very heavy responsibility that is placed upon them. and that they will not be led astray by any side cr trivial issues, but will concentrate their decision upon the capital issues that I have ireferT-ed to at the outset. -,t"
—,—. ￼ Qorou g hg Pembroke Borough? The polling for this constituency taxes" Sir Owen Philipps place to-morrow, u'U., contrary to the practice hitherto obotaining in that widely-scattered con- stituency, an effort is to be made to count the votes to-morrow night. The counting takes place at Haverfordwest, which is the natural centre for a district stretching from Fishguard, on the north, round by Haverfordwest to Milford, Pembroke Dock, and up to Nar- berth. The candidates are Sir George Arm- strong (Unionist), whose photo has already ap- peared in the "Evening Express," and Sir Owen Philipps, who was the Liberal member in the last Parliamient. [ On Way to Victory Mr. Austen Chamber Lain., at Yard ley, said the elections recorded on Saturday had shown llhat the Unionist party had recovered from the defeat it suffered four years ago, and wac on its way to victory. Most conspicuous were the elections in Birmingham- He had been told that a single one of the Birmingham majorities would have been suffi- cieart to turn the scale in every contested elec- tion that went against the Unionist party in London and leave a handsome margin to the Birmingham, representa- tive. Mr. A. Ch»mberiain. Tariff Reform, Not Emigration Mr. Fox-Davies, Unionist candidate for Mer- thyr Boroughs, last night &aid the only remedy sugestod by the LiWial party for the unemployment w-hioh existed in this country was emigration, but- the remedy offered by the Conservative party was Tariff Reform. Tariff Reform wa seoming-th-ere was no doubt about it: and he asked them to put him in Parliament that he might advocate the particular interests of that constituency as a Tariff Reformer, because that constitu- ency would feol the beneficial effects cf Tariff Reform more than any other. 'Applaise.) The groat bogey raised against Tariff Reform was- that it would increase tae i-rioe of food. but the leaders of the Conservative r. art y had said they were not going to be parties to anj; project that would ircrease the price of food. (Appiause.) Tariff Reform had proved a. great success in other countries and whv should it not be a. success with iis? The Right to Work Bill did, not solve the problem of unemployment; but he main- tained that if Tariff Reform was introduced it would solve it. (Applauses North Monmouth Mr..E G. M. Garmichael, Mr. Garmichael, Conser- vative candidate for North Monmouth, has received the following telegram frc-m Mr. Balfour: — My Dear Mr. Garmi- chael,—Let me wish you all success. Severe as is your oontest, I much hope that the Unionist party in North Mon- tnoutbshire will de their utmost to support yon in your endeavour to bring home to the electors the serious üonsequences of the neglect of our n.ational security. and the growing need for Tariff Reforln. Yours sincerely, A. J. BALFOUR. I Labour Appeals to Liberals Mr. John Williame, the Labour candidate for Gower, speaking at Hajimorkws, urged the Liberate to make common miioo with Ms party in t.he t crkng in the nation's history. The Liberal Government had re- moved from thousands of our aged poor the stinging stigma of pan—f perism. Mr. lloyd George was hated by the Lotndis for no other reasofli t.han that he had put hiis hand upon their sacred wealth in an atteniia to make them contribute a jnst share towards the cost of social reform. I A Judge Votes Twice I Counsel at the Routhwark County-court yes- 1 terday asked that a case might be adjourned as his client had not ajrived. "Several of us have been discharging our public. obligrAicAs this morning, your honour." Judge Willis: Quite so; but you should be up early to do so. I have voted twice, and yet I am here at, court, to discharge my duties. MR. LLOYD GEORGE. At Llandrdndod last night sa-id the question wa,s one of clearing the road for progress. Wha,t happened now? Liberlas took the cart up the hill laden with good things for the democracy, for the people of all classes, and after getting through all the sweat and parspira,tion and toil and anxiety with millions of people, then, when the cart arrived at the top of the hill there were 500 or 600 people entrenched. They did not know what was in the cart. (Shame.) All they sa.id was, who does it belong to? What are its colours ? If they were Liberal down it went again. (Shame.) What the electors should say once and for all in this contest was My Lords! clear the road." The House of Lords was no chivalrous assembly. Willen the Old Age Pensions Bill went up you could hear the Peers sharpen- ing their knives. (Laughter and. cheers.) But Lord L(1,nowne said. Before we finish it let me look through the window. (Laughter.) Let us see if there is a crowd outside watchiiig-(mc)re laughter)-and there wa.s a crowd—(la.ughter?—so he came back a?d &add, No, you had better (? Mlte They were looking angry. (Laughter.) Let ? (Laughter.) T,et it through this time. You can finish some- thing else." (Laughter.) And so they let it through with a male- diction. They cursed it: they hissed it; they spat upon it. (Shame.) They snarled at it, and they barked at it. (Laughter.) He said that men of tha., sort were not the custodians of mercy or charity in the land. They just counted heads. They did not examine propositions. The Peers saw a number of people pushing behind, and they said, You had better let- it through." (Laughter.) But if it had not friends they said, Put it in the pit!" Problem of Poverty The Chancellor remarked that hitherto the Budget was a parochial affair, but now for the first time it was the business of an officer of the Empire holding his commission straight from the Throne to drop into the cottage and say, Is there anybody old here who is in want?" (Cheers.) The Empire was looking at home. "The first thing I am going to do is this," said the Chancellor. I am going to cleanse the land of hunger and want. elieve me, the Budget is the beginning of a new era; it is the recogiiitio-n of a new duty by the Empire. The soul of the Empire is awakening at last, and is I beginning to realise that it owes a duty to the poor citizens who all their lives have been spending their force and strength to build up its greatness." (Loud and pro- longed cheering.) Pensions Doubt Dispelled Mr. Seymour Lloyd, Unionist candidate for Dundee, having telegraphed to Lord Lans- downe that Mr. Churchill had stated that every vote given to the Unionists was part of a mandate for stopping tha payment of old-age pensions, and that he (Mr. Lloyd) had stigmatised the statement as an attempt to get votes by false pretences, Lord Lans- downe has replied:- You are quite right in denouncing the interpretation placed on my leter. I have publicly accepted the policy of old-age pen- sions, and should opose any attempt to restrict them to existing recipients. Modifi- cations of conditions may obviously prove desirable in the interests of the pnesioners themselves. CARDIFF CATHOLICS AND MR. D. A. THOMAS. To the Editor of the "Evening Express." Sir,—Through being at night work I was unable to be present at the meeting of Irish electors held at the Cory-ball last, night, and on. reading the "Western Mail" re;port to-day I find that the oa.nci id afe said:- With regard to the inspection of convents he would not. allow inspection by the State of any private institutions whatever they were. On reading Mr. D. A. Thomas's statement I was astonished, for what I had gathered as to his record was as follows: — 1906. Voted against the Convent Bill. 1907. Voted for Convent Inspection Bill. 1908. Did not vote. 1909. Did not vote. Wishing to be fair to Mr. D. A. Thomas I make this statement, believing- it to be true, and if M.r. D. A. Thomas proves my informa- tion 'to be wiung I will hand over to the infirmary the sum of 10s. Please publish so as to give Mr. Thomas a chance to right himself with the electors.—I am, &o., TOM O'LEARY, 2, Adamsdown-place, East Moors, Jan. 18. Cardiff. ELECTION INCIDENTS. Mr. Haldane is so far recovered from his recent indisposition that he is able to go out for a short time each day. lie. however, will not travel t<f Haddington for the election. In Bristol (North) Parliamentary District, where Mr. Birrell was returned last night, a polling clerk wrote, in error, electors' numbers on 134 ballot-papers instead of on counterfoils, thus invalidating every otie.

INSURANCE APPEAL. The Ap'peal Court to-<da.y dismired with ooete the appeal by Denny, Mott. and Diek- ,sc),n (Limited), timber merchants, Cardiff, against the refusal of Justice Lawrence to appoint an arbitrator under the arbitration Clause in a policy of accident insurance with the Law and Acaident Insurance Society. The latter contended that the liabilitv arose after they had ceased to insure. The appel- lants court now held that the condition pre- cedent to an arbitrator being appointed nad not occurred, the liability for compensation not having arisen during the currency of the policy.

A MOTHER'S DISTRESS. Beatrice Webber (22) was charged at Cardiff on Monday with being d,runk and incapable in Wharton-street. The girl is said to have been a barmaid, and her mother, a hignly- respectable lady, who appeared to be in great distress, said she had vainly endea- voured to get her daughter to come home, but; she refused. The Bench (Messrs. D. Duncan, F. J. Voa.ll, and P.

ROLLER SKATING IN CARDIFF] Amongst the most, healthy and invigorating ways of obtaining the fullest measure of enjoyment out of life roller skating has now I taken a prominent place. The popu: ;"rity of the pastime is increasing so steadily in Car- dill that it is not surprising to find enter- prising people setting up new rinks to meet the public demand. The Olympia Roller Rink, situated in Queen-street, was opened on Monday, under the management of Mr. A, Tetlow, and promises to be a popular rendezvous i of devotees. There will be three sessions daily—eleven to one. 2.30 to five, and seven to 10.30. The enjoyment of visitors in the afternoon and evening will be heightened by music supplied by a military band. A feature of this new rink is that the charges will be fixed and moderate, and there will be no extras. Admission will be free to the morning session, bnt a charge of 6d. will be made for skates. At the afternoon session ladies will be admitted free, while gentlemen will be charged 6d., and there will, of course, be a charge of 6d. for skates. Admission to the evening session will be 6d. for ladies and gentlemen, and there will again be a charge of 6d. for skates. The skates used will be exclusively the Richardson ball-bearing skates, and additional interest is given to )' the new rink by the fact that instruction will be given free. At the American Roller Skating Rink, in Westgate-street, Cardiff, the enterprisi.ig managing directors (Messrs. Crawford and Wilkins) have arranged everything for the comfort and convenience of their numerous patrons by providing a maple floor-the best for skating purposes—good music by the military and the Samuel Winslow ball- bearing skates. Mention should also be made of the cafe, which is such an agreeable I¡ feature. A masked and fancy dress skating carnival will be held on Wednesday evening, February 2, when all the participants will appear in historical, mythical, burlesque, or topical costumes. Handsome prizes will be awarded in costume competitions. The increasing popularity of the pastime has led to another innovation at the Central Skating Rink on the Hayes, Cardiff, the management, in deference to the wishes of I their patrons, having instituted three sessions during the day. The addition is the morning session-from 10.30 to 12.30-which should be well patronised by the novice. The military band, as usual, is in attendance at the afternoon and evening sessions.

SEQUEL TO A QUARREL. I FOREIGNERS' ALLEGED FORGERY OF BANK-NOTES. At the Bow-street Police-court, London, on Monday (before Sir Albert de Rutzen) Joseph Peter (27), a fireman, a Hungarian subject, and KaJman Etienme Albrecht (30), a civil engineer, a Frendh sub>ect, both lately living a-t a boarding-house in BloomebuecT'- \trcet, were charged on remand with being in the unlawful possession of photographic glass platee for producing Aust ro-Hungarian humlren kronen and fifty kronen bank-notes. There was a tie--end charge against Peter of unlawfully and maliciously t-hrowing corro- sive acid over Albirecht, with intent to do him grievous bodily harm, whilst Albrecht was charged with assaulting Peter by striking him OIL the head with a bottle. In opening the case, Mr. Bodkin said that the prisoners took rooms in Bloomsbury in September. They were not on good terms for a few days before December 31. on which day Pet,er went to the ()DI]4 Peter went to the Consulate to give informa- tion about what Albrecht had been doing. He was referred to Scotland Yai-d, where he made some statement?. Peter had been engaged on work re-ferring to perpetual motion, and was recently tempted by Albrecht to embark on the forgery of foreign notes. The quarrel which grew up between them culminated one night in Albrecht being refused admission by Peter to their joint roow. Next morning, however—on January 1 --Peteil" opened the door and Albrecht went in. Cries were heard, and Albrecht ran out, and it was found that his head and eye had been injured by hydrocfclorio acid being thrown over him. Prisonexs were remanded.
THE SEAMY SIDE. I Richard Hen wood (48) was fined 10s. and 1 costs, or seven days, a,t Cardiff on Monday for I improper behaviour in North Church-street, and Maory Pearoe (17) was oqmmitted for a month for-being concerned in the case.
MINERS' CLAIMS SMALL COAL AND ABNORMAL PLACES Owners and Minimum PROPOSAL TO REDUCE IT We understand that the following proposals have submitted by the miners' repre- sentatives to the coalowners for inclusion in the proposed new Weleh agreement 1. Minimum and Maximum.—That the minimum be raised from 30 per cent. to 40 per cent., and the present maximum be deleted. 2. Payment for Small Coaa.-Anamendment of Clause 7 of the present agreement to provide that payment shall be made the collier for small ooal. 3. Abnormal Places.—In the event of a collier having conditions in his working place which prevent him earning a fair wage on the price-list, he shall receive such an allowance aa he and the manage- ment agree upon. it being understood that the allowance to be so made shall be such as to make the wages paid to the collier equivalent to the wa.ges he would earn if hw working place was in a normal condition: Provided that if the management and the collier fail to agree as to wtiat the condition of the working place is. or as to the a.mount of the allowanoe to be paid, the management shall ill that e-ieru pay to each collier employed in the working place. if more tha.n one collier shall be so employed, a standard wage of not less than 4s. 9d. per day, but if one collier only and a helpeT shall be so employed then the collier a standard wage of no.t less than 43. Jd. per day. and to his helper a standard wage of not less than 4s. per day. Provided that if the manage- ment shall at any time become dissatisfied with the work done by the collier in any such working place, the mana-gefhent shall, after complaint shall have been made to the collier, have the right to remove the collier to a working place in the same colliery where the conditions are normal, but until such removal shall be actually made the terms and provisions of this clause shall continue and have effect. 4. Payment for Night W_ork. That the workmen employed on the afternoon or night shifts shall be paid a wage-rate equal to the payment of six turns' pay for five shifts worked. 5. Low Rates of Payment.-That the wages of workmen employed in the collieries who are in receipt of wages less than 3s. 4d. upon the standard shall be raised to that amount. 6. Independent Chairman.—To propose that in all matters of dispute at the collieries referred to the Conciliation Board in which failure to agree by the parties is reported an independent chairman shall be appointed to finally decide the matter, whose decision shall be adopted by the employers and the workmen. 7. Weekly Pays.—That the wages of all the workmen employed at the collieries shall be paid weekly. 8. Hours of Work.—That the words from the beginning to "and" in line 2 of Clause 1 of the agreement of the 30th of June, 1909, be deleted. (N.B.—The clause referred to reads as fol- lows:—"That the hours of labour of workmen employed below ground at such collieries respectively shall be such as are authorised by the Coal Mines Regulation Act of 1908, and that, notwithstanding the limitation of hours to be worked as the result of the coming into operation of the said Act, no alteration shall be made in the standard rates and prices hitherto paid to such workmen during the continuance of the said Conciliation Board agreement." If this proposal of the work- men is adopted the words up to "notwith- standing" will be deleted, the object being to exclude from the new agreement anything like an admission that the owners are "authorised" to enforce the 60 hours' clause of the Coal Mines Regulation Act of 1908. which, of course, is popularly known as the Bight Hours Act). PROPOSALS OF THE OWNERS 1. The reduction of the minimum from 30 per oent. to 20 per cent. 2. That the equivalent selling price per ton if or the 20 per cent, minimum shall be 12s. 4d. (N.B.—It is now 11s. lOd. for the 30 per cent. minimum). 3. That the owners shall have the right to adopt whatever shifte; they shall think fit. 4. That weekly pays shall be abolished wherever now in force, and that fortnightly pays shall be established at all collieries. 5. That the owners shall have the right to enforce the 60 hours' clause in the Eight Hours Act. 6. That a clause shall be inserted in the new agreement which shall provide for the immooe rel urn to work of all men after any holidays. 7. That the bonus turn on the night ehift shall be abolished. 8. That wherever any work is done on Sun- day, the shift shall be one of eight hours instead of six a,, at present.
LLANELLY AND THE BANK It appe-ars from the official minutes of the Llanelly Harbour Trust that at a joint meet- ing of the trust and the urban district council a discussion took place on the corre- spondence between the authorities and the Bank of England in regard to the harbour trust loan. It was reported by the Clerk (Mr. Spowart) that he had forwarded a copy of the report of the general superintendent to the chief cashier of the Bank of England, j and he had replied stating that if the ha.r- boar trust would write a letter embodying a definite proposal on the lines indicated in the report the whole matter would be laid before the Governor of the Bank for his consideration. Mr. Nairne added tha.t his letter was not to be regarded as an expres- sion of opinion that all the details of t.he proposal were likely to commend themselves to the Governor. After some discussion, it was resolved that proposals to the Bank, based on the report of the harbour superintendent, be prepared by the committee with a view to its being sub- mitted to a further joint meeting of the trust and cowncH for their approvaj. At a meeting of the trust held on January 7 the clerk reported that he had received the half-yearly statement of interest up to December Ia<st. which included interest upon interest. He had. however, informed the Bank in the usual way that the trust did not oon- eider themselves as under any liability to pay interest upon interest. LOCAL WILLS. MR. A. A. BANNER, CARDIFF.

LADY MAYORESSS BALL. I A meeting of the ladaes' committee in con- in-ection with the Lady Mayoress's ball in aid cf the Queen Victoria Nurses' Institution was held in the Lord Mayor's visitors' room, at the City-hall, Cardiff, on Monday, when there was a representative gathering of ladies. The hon. secretary (Mr. E. C. Willmott) reported that Mr. Fred Roberts's band had been engaged for the dance, and that a speciaJ committee would be appointed to look after the floor of the baill-room. The secre- ta.ry further reported that Miss Perry, owing to illness, would be unable to take charge of the oat-oring department 001 this occasion, and the committee were •unanimous in asking Mrs. J. A. Jones and Mrs, Mullins to under- take this duty, and these ladies very kindly accepted. Reports were received from many of the ladies on the frencral committee promising to contribute refreshments of various kinds, a.nd Mrs. J. A. Jones promised to write to other ladies and gentlemen for further necessary provisions. Everything points to a most successful dance, and, as there is likely to "be a great demand for tickets, &11 ladies and gentlemen siiould procure tickets at once. These may be obtained from all members of the com- mittee, the principal booksellers and piano- forte warehouses, and from the hon. secre- tary, 197, Riohmond-road. I
I CARDIFF CAR-DONDUCTOR AS I DETECTIVE. The -vigilanoe of Charles Paull, of 39, Here- ford-street, Cardiff, a, oar conductor, was responsible for the arrest of Herbert Fryer, (28), a baker, was charged on Mon- da.y with stealing a box, containing whisky, onions, and apples, which had been left on a oar. The conductor toM the bench tha,t the defendant jumped on a car at the market, and stood up inside. Witness went into the oar to book tickets, and then noticed the man pick up the box and jump off the oar as it was turning into Castle- street. He followed, and told the man he would give him into custody, at which he said, "For God's sake, don't do that." The constable who arrested the man said he had been drinking, and Inspector Bingham stated that it wa-- due to drink, as the man was respectable when sober. Mr. Ensor said there was a good deal of petty pilfering, but Mr. D- Duncan chairman; bound prisoner over as a first offender.
FIFTY-TWO YEARS IN HOSPITAL. I Miss Sarah Jones, who had been an inmate of the Royal Hospital for Incurables at Putney for 52 years, has died. I was only eighteen years old," she said some time am, with a smile, "when the doctors said I wae incurable. Paralysis was the trouble, and I have been here ever since- one day exactly like another, seeing the news- paper, reading a good deal, and doing a lot of needlework." For the past few years Miss Jones received from an anonymous friend a picture poet- card every week. The cards continue to arri»e, and the hospital authorities are unable to communicate with the kindiiy sender.
TORE A POLITICAL POSTER. 11 For damaging a political poster by tearing it Frederick Smith was fined 5s. at Enfield. He admitted it was "a foolish act," and said t-ha-t he did not know what he was doing at the time. "Party feeling runs high at a time like this," said the chairman of the magi- strates, "and, therefore, the bench will not be too severe."

NOT A PATH OF ROSES. In deep distress, a well-dressed lady sought advice at Marylebone Police-court with regard to an erring better-half, who had been cruel enough to order her to "clear out." Mr. Plowden: How long have you been married to him? "About fifteen years." "And don't you know by this time the exact value of his words?" "He has been carrying on and bringing v,omen to my house." The Magi- strate said that was quite a different matter, but his was not the court to rectify such a state of things. "But it is through this that all the unpleasantness has arisen," appli- ca.nt persisted. The Magistrate agreed that such a state of things might naturally be expected not to have a pleasant and soothing effect, but still regretted his inability to straighten matters out. "He threatened to blacken my eyes only this morning," said the woman. Mr. Plowden: Are you afraid of him? (Hesitating) "N—o, sir; oh, no." Mr. Plowden: Perhaps he is a little afraid of you? "That I don't know, but it is not very nice to be told to clear out of one's home." Mr. Plowden (raising 14 hand deprecatlngly): My dear madam, I don't say your married life is a path of roses, but let's see what he does. Next appücationl 1:;a
EXPEDITIOUS GRANTING OF DIVORCE. While the election fever has generally domi- nd the I #aw Courts during this opening week of the Hilary sittings, vastly to the detriment of that happy despatch ofbusiness so much to be desired (writes the London oor- respondent of the Daily Dispatch''), there has been one conspicuous exception to the rule. The Divorce Division, with two judgce sitting, has seen no diminution in the spirit of hustle which is cha.raoteris.tic of the open- ing week each term. Sir John Bigiiam and Mr. Justice Bargrave Deane, between tbem, tackled a list of 40 cases during three d&ys of the week, and in a general way decrees havevbeen granted at the rate of two every quarter of an hour of the time the ocuurts have been sitting. As many as 120 suits have been listed, and well ewer the hundred have been brought to an issue .These have all been undefended cafes, which, "once in court." as a lady respondent vfrote in fc letter, which was read during the week, "are all over in ten minutes."
A TRAVELLING OFFICE. An interesting innovation is to be tried by, the London and North-Western Eailway on February 1 in connection with two new through trains which will run between Broad- street City station and Birmingham. In ordoe,r that bus-inese men may make good use of their time whale travelling the com- pany have engaged a shorthand typist, whose services will be at the disposal of any of the passengers who have urgent correspon- dence to deal with. A reserved compart- ment will be set a.side for this purpose, and as the strictest privacy will be observed, business men will be able to cope with press- ing communications with as much confidence and despatch as though seated in their own offices.
